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's settled in a 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
Hard core soft porn

Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my fairy 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
And Cobain can you hear the spheres
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
Hard core soft porn

Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Clever, Bill. I get the Peter Green riff.

It's dull and Kiedas can't carry a tune just for starters.  I thought these guys were supposed to be a high energy, mofo party band.  Sheesh

True, I can confirm that too.
Headache-inducing tripe. Where's the skip function again?

ah the Chili's. they sound so dated now

When a band gets this much h8 (e.g. DMB, U2, GD, on RP), you just know they are EXCELLENT.   As is this song. 

...and Mr. Frusciante. 

I am very much looking forward to their new material and summer tour.
   First born as unicorn in vacation
became a hard core soft porn waging.

That "guitar solo" is about as bad as it gets. Just painful to listen to.
