Californication Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Around The World


All around the world
We could make time
Rompin' and a-stompin'
'cause I'm in my prime

Born in the north
And sworn to entertain ya
'Cause I'm down for
The state of Pennsylvania

I try not to whine
But I must warn ya
'Bout the motherf*ckin'
girls from California

Alabama baby
Said "hallelujah"
Good God girl
I wish I knew ya

I know, I know for sure
That life is beautiful around the world
I know I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

Come back, baby
'cause I'd like to say
I've been around the world
Back from Bombay

Fox hole love
Pie in your face
Livin' in and out
Of a big fat suitcase


Bona fide ride
Step aside my Johnson
Yes I could
In the woods of Wisconsin

Wake up the cake
it's lake she's kissin' me
As they do
When they do in Sicily

I know, I know for sure
That life is beautiful around the world
I know I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

Where you want to go?
Who you want to be?
What you want to do?
Just come with me

I saw god
And I saw the fountains
You and me girl
Sittin' in the Swiss mountains

Me Oh My O
Me and Guy O
Freer then a bird
Cus we're rockin' Ohio

Around the world
I feel dutiful
Take a wife
cause life is beautiful

I know I know for sure
ring ling dong ding dong ring ding dooooown ding dang!
I know I know it's you
ring-dick-a-do ring-dick-a-ding-ring doooooown ding dang!

Mother Russia, do not suffer
I know you're bold enough
I've been around the world
And I have seen your love
I know I know it's you
You say, "Hello" and then I say, "I do"

Parallel Universe

Deep inside of a parallel universe
It's getting harder and harder
To tell what came first

Under water where thoughts can breathe Easily

Far away you were made in a sea
Just like me

[Chorus:]
Christ I'm a sidewinder I'm a
California King
I swear it's everywhere
It's everything

Staring straight up into the sky
Oh my my a solar system that fits
In your eye Microcosm

You could die but your never dead spider web
Take a look at the stars in
Your head fields of space kid

[Chorus x 2]

Psychic changes are born in your heart
Entertain
A nervous breakthrough that makes us the
same
Bless your heart girl

Kill the pressure it's raining on
Salty Cheeks
When you hear the beloved song
I am with you

[Chorus x 2]

Scar Tissue


Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you 'cause
With the birds I'll share

With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
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 'cause
With the birds I'll share


With the birds (share) I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds (share) I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds (share) I'll share
This lonely view

Blood loss in a bathroom stall
Southern girl with a scarlet drawl
Wave good-bye to ma and pa 'cause
With the birds I'll share

With the birds (share) I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds (share) I'll share
This lonely view


Soft spoken with a broken jaw
Step outside but not to brawl
Autumn's sweet we call it fall
I'll make it to the moon if I have to crawl and

(I'm) With the birds(sharing) I'll share
(this lonely) This lonely view
(I'm) With the birds(sharing) I'll share

Otherside


How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up; it brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I've got to take it on the otherside

Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I gotta take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on


How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin my throat
it's all I ever...

Pour my life into a paper cup
The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts
She wants to know am I still a slut
I've got to take it on the otherside

A scarlet starlet and she's in my bed
A candidate for my soul mate bled
I push the trigger and I pull the thread
I've got to take it on the otherside
Take it on the otherside
Take it on
Take it on


How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Turn me on, take me for a hard ride
Burn me out, leave me on the otherside
I yell and tell it that It's not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down
And then it's born again

How long, how long will I slide
Separate my side; I don't,
I don't believe it's bad
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever had (how long)
I don't,
I don't believe it's fair
Slittin' my throat
it's all I ever...

Get On Top

Get on Top Get on Top

Hit me come get me I bite but she bit me

Go-rilla c*nt-illa
Sammy D and Salmonella
Come with me 'cause I'm an ass killer
You're ill but I'm iller

I'll malinger on your block and
Give the finger to a cop and
Pick a lock before I knock and
Set you up to get on top

[Chorus:]
Complications of a mastermind
Last temptation of my kind
Extra planetary sign
When do we align
All in time
Right on

Get up come sit up I light but she lit up

Grass Hopper Show Stopper
The life of a Wife Swapper
Come with me 'cause I'm a big bopper
You do but I wopper

Exterminate my cause
You want to draw some straws
Be the one to see my flaws
Make me bleed with painted claws

[Chorus]

Get on Top Get on Top

Hit me come get me I bite but she bit me

Speed Baller Rhodes Scholar
Bottom Bitch And a Bottom Dollar
Come with me 'cause I'm a Free Faller
You hoot but I holler

I'll malinger on your block
Give the finger to a cop and
Pick a lock before I knock on
Set you up to get on top

Get on Top

Californication


Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind's elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

It's the edge of the world
and all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It's understood that Hollywood
sells Californication


Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war you're waging

First born unicorn
Hardcore soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my ferry to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
It's Californication


Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the Spears
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population
Everybody's been there
And I don't mean on vacation

First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication


Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest, there is no test
But this is what you're craving

First born unicorn
Hardcore soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Easily

Easily let's get carried away
Easily let's get married today
Shao Lin shouted a rose
From his throat
Everything must go
A lickin' stick is thicker
When you break it to show
Everything must go

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're
fighting for

Calling calling for something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

Easily let's get caught in a wave
Easily we won't get caught in a cage
Shao Lin shakin' for the sake
Of his soul - Everything must go
Lookin' mighty tired of
All the things that you own
Everything must go

I can't tell you who to idolize
You think it's almost over
But it's only on the rise
Calling calling
For something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're
fighting for

Throw me to the wolves because
Because there's order in the pack
Throw me to the sky
Because I know I'm coming back

Shao Lin shakin' for the sake
Of his soul - Everything must go
Lookin' mighty tired of
All the things that you own
Everything must go

The story of a woman on the morning of a war
Remind me if you will exactly what we're
fighting for

Calling calling for something in the air
Calling calling I know you must be there

I don't want to be your little research monkey
boy
The creature that I am is only going to destroy

Throw me to the wolves
Because there's order in the pack
Throw me to the sky
Because I know I'm coming back

Easily

Porcelain

Porcelain
Are you wasting away in your skin
Are you missing the love of your kin
Drifting and floating and fading away

Porcelain
Do you smell like a girl when you smile
Can you bear not to share with your child
Drifting and floating and fading away

Little lune
All day
Little lune

Porcelain
Do you carry the moon in your womb
Someone said that you're fading too soon
Drifting and floating and fading away

Porcelain
Are you wasting away in your skin
Are you missing the love of your kin
Nodding and melting and fading away

Little lune
All day
Little lune...

Emit Remmus

The California animal is a bear
Angeleno but the devil may care
Summer time to talk and swear
Later maybe we could share some air
I'll take you to the movies there
We could walk through Leicester Square
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

[Chorus:]
London in the summer time
Call me now use the satellite
London in the summer time
Cuss me out and it'll feel all right

Hesitate but don't refuse
The choice was yours but you said choose
The look she used was green and sharp
Stabbed that boy all in his heart
Come what may the cosmos will
Take me up and down on Primrose Hill
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

[Chorus]

Cuss me out and it'll feel all right
It's all right now
Call me now use the satellite
It's all right
It's all right

Down and out and it'll sound all right
It's all right now
It's all right

The California flower is poppy child
Felony sends me all the gold in your smile
Drift away from anyone you can
Nothing ever goes according to plan
Though I know that every river bends
Time to say hello to snow on the Thames
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

[Chorus]

I Like Dirt

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

[Chorus:]
I like dirt
I like dirt
I like dirt
I like dirt

The earth is made of dirt and wood
And I'd be water if I could
Live in a dream
In your stream
Live in a dream

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

[Chorus]

Some come slow and overload
Must roll over when you're told
Let's unzip and let's unfold
A letter to the pet better get it to go

[Chorus]

Space is made of everything
And I'd be fire that I bring
Live in a dream
In your spring
Live in a dream

Some come slow and overload
Must roll over when you're told
Let's unzip and let's unfold
A letter to the pet better get it to go

[Chorus]

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

[Chorus]

Some come up and some come young
Live to love and give good tongue
Sit down get down in the sun
Rocket to the woman is on the one

This Velvet Glove

Close to my skin
I'm falling in
Someone who's been

Sittin' by the phone
I'm left alone
In another zone

John says to live above hell
My will is well

No one is waiting
For me to fail
My will could sail yeah

It's such a waste to be wasted
In the first place
I want to taste the taste of
Being face to face with common grace
To meditate on the warmest dream
And when I walk alone I listen
To our secret theme

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Sailin' for the sun
'Cause There is one
Knows where I'm from

I care for you
I really do I really do

Come closer now
So you can lie
Right by my side

Sit alone in the sun
I wrote a letter to you
Getting over myself

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That can see right through
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Your solar eyes are like
Nothing I have ever seen
Somebody close
That was made for you
I'd take a fall and you know
That I'd do anything
I will for you

Close to my skin
Someone who's been
I'm a falling in

Disasters are
Just another star
Falling in my yard

John says to live above hell
My will is well

Long to be with
Someone to tell
I love your smell

Savior

Dusting off your savior
You were always my favorite
Always my man - All in a hand

To celebrate you is greater
Now that I can - Always my man

Now you see what I came for
No one here is to blame for
Misunderstand - All in a hand

Just like you 'cause you made me
All that I am - All in a hand

A butterfly that flaps its wings
Affecting almost everything
The more I hear the orchestra
The more I have something to bring
And now I see you in a beautiful
And different light
He's just a man and any damage done
Will be all right
Call out my name
Call and I came

Dusting off your savior
Forgiving any behavior
He's just a man - All in a hand

Your hero's destined to waver
Anyone can - Always my man

I would never betray you
Look at me who could raise you
Face in the sand - Safe in your hand

You were always my favorite
Always my man - All in a hand

We are the red hots and
We're loving up the love me nots
The flowers in your flower pots
Are dancing on the table tops
And now I see you in a beautiful
And different light
He's just a man and everything he does
Will be all right
Call out my name
Call and I came

Dusting off your savior
The life that you have narrated
You were my man

Purple Stain

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I'm in your house now let me spin

Python power straight from Monty
Celluloid loves got a John Frusciante
Spread your head and spread the blanket
She's too free and I'm the patient

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain - I know

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

Up to my ass in alligators
Let's get it on with the alligator haters
Did what you did - did what you said
What's the point yo what's the spread

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain - I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It's way out there but I don't care
'Cause this is where - I go

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

It's way out there
But I don't care
'Cause this is what
I want to wear

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood

To finger paint is not a sin
I put my middle finger in
Your monthly blood is what I win
I'm in your house now let me spin

Feather light but you can't move this
Farley is an angel and I can prove this
Purple is a stain upon my pillow
Let's Sleep weeping willow

Black and white a red and blue
Things that look good on you
And if I scream don't let me go
A purple stain - I know
And if I call for you to stay
Come hit the funk on your way
It's way out there but I don't care
'Cause this is where - I go

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood
With Dracula and Darla Hood
Unspoken words were understood

It's way out there
But I don't care
'Cause this is what
I want to wear

Knock on wood we all stay good
'Cause we all live in Hollywood

Right On Time

One shot all I need
I've got rhythm when I bleed

'Til death do us part
Break my heart so I can start

Supercalifragilistic
Kiss me in the futuristic
Twisted but I must insist
It's time to get on top of this

[Chorus:]
It's right on time
It's right on time
It's right on time
It's right on time it's right on time it's right on
time it's right on time
Lookin' fine you're lookin' fine get on 1999
It's right on time

Discard to bombard
Calling all you shooting stars

Holy cow bow wow wow
Now I'm here I'm nowhere now

Joan of Arc reincarnated
Maybe we could be related
So much blood to circulate
And so much space to decorate
Chorus

Plain and simple pain
I want to but I can't complain

Death row let us go
It's time to blow up for the show

All the world reverberated
Coming through we motorcaded
Vibrate when we operated
Turning up in solid stated

Oh Lord

Road Trippin'

Road trippin' with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It's time to leave this town
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost

[Chorus:]
Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

So much as come before those battles lost and
won
This life is shining more forever in the sun
Now let us check our heads
And let us check the surf
Staying high and dry's
More trouble than it's worth
In the sun

Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on
We three hunky dory's got our snakefinger on
Now let us drink the stars
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Right here in the U.S.A

[Chorus]

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
Your smiling eyes are just a mirror for

Gong Li

Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's true, things that you're going through
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's you, things that you're going through,
Some people sad I pray for,
No one you want to live, the eyes that once were his
Some people sad I pray for,
The way you want to live, the eyes you want to give

Some people say you played me,
I don't care if it's true, I'm waiting here for you,
Some people say you made it,
I'm not afraid to know, when things are getting low
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's true, things that you're going through
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's you, things that you're going through
