3AM Eternal: Porno For Pyros “Pets” (1993)

Perry Farrell has always been able to write a meaningful song that both captures a mood while saying something quite meaningful. “Pets” would be the debut single from his post-Jane’s Addiction project, Porno For Pyros. It was a startling number; the power and the bombast of Jane’s Addiction was gone, replaced by a minimalism in arrangement that enhanced the intensity of his lyrics. Looking towards the future and an alien invasion, Farrell feels as if we are in need of captivity simply because humans are inherently destructive. For such a depressing lyric, the tune was catchy in its own intriguing way. Personally, I think the line “My friend says we’re like the dinosaurs, only we are doing ourselves in much faster than they ever did” is one of his best lyrics ever.
