    Default Whats the meaning of "Cut from the know"

    There's a song from Red Hot Chili Peppers called "Breaking The Girl" where Anthony Kiedis sings:
    "I am a man
    Cut from the know
    Rarely do friends
    Come and then go..."
    So, whats the meaning of "Cut from the know"??
    Thanks,
    Acacio

    Cut off from knowledge about things?

    Apparently, it refers to past patterns in his life--about what he has experienced, the patterns of his life; a similar idiom in form, but not in meaning, is cut from the same cloth.


    From SongMeanings | lyrics | Red Hot Chili Peppers - Breaking The Girl
    I read Anthony's biography, Scar Tissue, a couple weeks ago. /.../ He mentioned that when he wrote this song, he was just thinking about past patterns and the girls he may have hurt, partly due to his father's example. <Posted by lilybart on 10-31-2004 @ 12:55:26 AM >
