Stone Temple Pilots - Plush


Stone Temple Pilots - Plush - Meaning of the song


This was STP's breakthrough hit off of their major label debut album. Like all of their songs of the era, it is a band composition. Drummer Eric Kretz said it was a very collaborative and energetic time for the band in terms of songwriting.


"There was enthusiasm and excitement and everyone was in the room and participating creatively, artistically. It's the most fun time to be in a band when everyone has the same ideas and everyone has the same goals."


The lyrics were inspired, in part, by an unfortunate news story in Stone Temple Pilots' hometown of San Diego, California about a missing young woman who was later discovered dead by local law enforcement ("And I feel, when the dogs begin to smell her..."). At a concert in Columbus, Ohio on May 17, 2008, lead singer Scott Weiland said that he and STP drummer Eric Kretz wrote the lyrics in a hot tub after hearing the story. Weiland has described the song as "a metaphor for a lost obsessive relationship."


Plush - Lyrics


And I feel that time's a wasted go So where ya going 'til tomorrow? And I see that these are lies to come So would you even care? And I feel it And I feel it Where ya going for tomorrow? Where ya going with the mask I found? And I feel, and I feel When the dogs begin to smell her Will she smell alone? And I feel, so much depends on the weather So is it raining in your bedroom? And I see, that these are the eyes of disarray Would you even care? And I feel it And she feels it Where ya going for tomorrow? Where ya going with the mask I found? And I feel, and I feel When the dogs begin to smell her Will she smell alone? When the dogs do find her Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow To find it, to find it, to find it When the dogs do find her Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow To find it, to find it, to find it Where ya going for tomorrow? Where ya going with the mask I found? And I feel, and I feel When the dogs begin to smell her Will she smell alone? When the dogs do find her Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow To find it, to find it, to find it When the dogs do find her Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow To find it, to find it, to find it To find it To find it To find it
