Waiting
On a Sunday afternoon
For what I read between the lines
Your lies
Feelin'
Like a hand in rusted shame
So do you laugh or does it cry

Leavin'
On a southern train
Only yesterday
You lied
Promises
Of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time
Go by
All of these things you said to me

Breathing
Is the hardest thing to do
With all I've said
And all that's dead for you
You lied
Goodbye

Leavin'
On a southern train
Only yesterday
You lied
Promises
Of what I seemed to be
Only watched the time
Go by
All of these things I said to you

Great song to play loud while cruising on an interstate.
nice but overplayed here at RP
 Reminds me of Grand Funk Railroad, too!

A lot of STP's songs were not really that "simple".  They did rock regardless.

"leaving on a southern train..." Here we go with those South Bound trains again.

For all you 50 plus folks out there, this band reminds me of Bad Company. Not an Aerosmith or a Led Zeppelin, but as dedicated, they produced a great number of hits and really did know how to rock and roll. The same can be said of STP. Simple formula, simple songs, great message, and a great funk!

SOOOO GOOD!
Maybe not the first, but definitely the best and most consistent, in my opinion, at the rock form of Grunge, and still does me solid today

STP and the like, these bands of the very-late 80's early 90's ended the rein of BIG-hair bands - thank the heavens above for that!{#Drunk}

I have a soft spot in my heart for 'Grunge' (or whatever you want to call it) to this day for that same reason

 
I feel much the same way.  Alice In Chains sealed the 'Grunge' deal for me first though.

Having a ho hum day until this came on. Thanks RP! {#Dancingbanana_2}
I'd give it 11 like the volume I turn it to if I could.  Great song from an awesome album.

Song evokes a time and a place that is strangely long ago.

 
This exactly. {#Cool} 
remember thinking when I first saw this video that the lead singer certainly had "star" power

RIP, Scott. 

I was never a big fan of STP, and shook my head 15-20 several times when I read about Weiland's drug problems. I read his obituary the other day, ready to snicker, but realized that the guy worked hard while dealing with almost lifelong addiction problems. Apparently he struggled with the notion, like a lot of other artists, that he needed drugs to create music and succeed. Very sad. I'm sorry he's gone. 

 
That's one of the more disturbing snippets I've seen around here recently.  What, exactly, did you expect to snicker at in his obituary?
RIP
