“ It’s like I’m in the 4th Dimension and somebody is asking me to describe it verbally. And that’s what the 4th Dimension is all about. Is no words, no symbols, no images. All pure, real energy and vibrations. And if I thought about how cruel of a world this is, I would probably just commit suicide after a while, if that was what I spent my energy about. I would definitely not have any strenght left to create music. ”

- John Frusciante, Funky Monks Documentary (1992)

You are all alone

You are all alone
Tell me now girl that you need me too
Tell me now girl ‘cause I’ve got a feeling for you
