I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers, honey
Lana was naive, and a virgin. She needed someone to lead her in more ways than one. She wondered and dreamed, confused about love and life. About what it meant to be alone, or to want love so much. She tried to accept the answers she was given to these difficult questions, such as religion.
She didn’t know the implications of life, why the road was long and hard, why we were born to die.
When I was very young, I was sort of floored by the fact that my mother and my father and everyone I knew was going to die one day, and myself too. I had a sort of a philosophical crisis. I couldn’t believe that we were mortal. For some reason that knowledge sort of overshadowed my experience. I was unhappy for some time. I got into a lot of trouble. I used to drink a lot. That was a hard time in my life.
