"Melancholy Mechanics" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, John Frusciante and Michael 'flea' Balzary....
Persistent mystic faults my vision
Its like always this point of collision

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

Three pound of love
About to burst
Inside my three pound
Universe

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

These are the melancholy mechanics of my mind
Symbols I've been given to express my goal
Always come up short
You know they just don't get that low

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

These are the melancholy mechanics of my mind
Quick release chemicals strike with incomprehensible precision
Bio organic electronics targeting microscopic destinations of devastation

Cleaner than light
Meaner than a laser fight in the night 2000
Billions of micro maniacs unknown to most as the uncontrollable soldiers
Of suffering succotash
Instantaneous infiltration leaves me with a case of bustation, frustration,
Alone in the constellation of alienation detached from empty conversation
I wait
I wait
For the waaaaaave to break.

    General CommentYep, great song! One of the first I heard from RHCP, and also the most mellow...it's pretty obvious it's about being depressive and introspective

    General CommentThose lyrics can't be right. Very positive it says "Psycho-exist point of collision."

    General CommentYeah, it says "Psycho-exist point of collision" instead of "its like always this point of collision".

    And it seems to be about being high on drugs and things that happen in your mind when you're trippin'.

    General CommentI'd say the most mellow song is actually 'If' off of Stadium Arcadium.

    General CommentThe sad workings or mechanisms of his mind. Is what I get from "these are the Melancholgy Mechanics of my mind."

    When he says "it's raining in my cranium." I guess it's all the bad drugs and shit fucking up his mind. And when he says "my head feels like a stadium," I guess its all the problems and shit he's going through that are starting to weigh heavily on him. And yeah the line is incorrect. it is "Psycho-exist point of collision".
