Transcript of Scar Tissue
By: The Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Catcher In The Rye
The song is about the band's lead singer Anthony Kiedis with his struggle with drugs, addiction, and the feeling of being a low-life outsider to the everyday person as well as his frequent quarrels with friends and band mates due to his extreme addiction. What Keidis means by "Scar Tissue" is that the everyday person does not see or understand the dealings he's been through,as well as the physical reminder of the scar tissue left behind from the needles Kiedis used to shoot up.
We learn throughout the book that Holden's brother Allie had passed away from cancer at a very young age. As the book continues we learn that Holden's memory's of Allie seem to affect Holden in a very negative way, and that becuase of Allies death Holden finds it hard to fit in with the norms of society and everyday life. Allie's death acts as Holden's "Scar Tissue" wich the everyday person cannot understand as Holden is trapped in his childish world revolved around Allie and the innosence of children.
"Scar tissue that i wish you saw
Sarcastic mister Know it all"
"With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share this lonely view."
"Push me up against the wall
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra
Fallin' all over myself to lick your heart and taste your health"
"Blood loss in a bathroom stall
Southern girl witha scarlet drawl
Wave goodbye to ma and pa 'cause
With the birds I'll share"
"Soft Spoken with a broken jaw
Step outside but not to brawl
Autumn's sweet but we call it fall
I'll make it to the moon if i have to crawl"
"Then he really let one go at me, and the next thing i knew i was on the goddam floor again. I don't remember if he knocked me out or not, but i don't think so...But my nose was bleeding all over the place. When i looked up, old Stradlater was standing practically right on top of me"(45).
"I can't wait around till Wednesday anymore so i will probably hitch hike out west this afternoon"(200).
“I felt so lonesome, all of a sudden. I almost wished I was dead” (48).
“What I really felt like, though, was committing suicide. I felt like jumping out the window. I probably would've done it, too, if I'd been sure somebody'd cover me up as soon as I landed. I didn't want a bunch of stupid rubbernecks looking at me when I was all gory"(104).
"A lot of people, especially this one psychoanalyst guy they have here, keeps asking me if I'm going to apply myself when i go back to School next September"(213).
“You never even worried with Jane, whether your hand was sweaty or not. All you knew was, you were happy. You really were”(79).
"I practically sat down in her lap,as a matter of fact. Then she really started to cry, and the next thing I knew, I was kissing her all over-anywhere-her eyes, her nose, her forehead, her eyebrows and all, her ears-her whole face except her mouth and all"(79).
"I went over and laid down on Ely's bed,Boy, did i feel rotten.I felt so damn lonesome...I just kept layin in Ely's bed, thinking about Jane and all. It just drove me stark staring mad when i thought about her and Stradlater parked somewhere in that fat-assed Ed Banky's car"(48).
"New York's terrible when someone laughs on the street very late at night. You can hear it for miles. It makes you feel so lonesome and depressed"(81).
"He's dead now. He got leukemia and died when we were up in Maine, on July 18, 1946. You'd have liked him...I was only thirteeen, and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the garage"(38-39).
"Every time I'd get to the end of a block I'd make believe i was talking to my brother Allie. I'd say to him, "Allie don't let me disappear. Allie don't let me disappear. Allie, don't let me disappear. Please, Allie" And then when I'd reach the other side of the street without disappearing, I'd thank him"(198).
