"Midnight" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Things will never be the same
Still I'm awfully glad I came
Resonating in the shape of things to come
Never waiting when I know there's only one

Messed it up but rest assured
No one ever thinks they're cured
Just a minute while I reinvent myself
Make it up and then I take it off the shelf

Over the laws of light
Over the moon by midnight
Let's do it all this time
Everyone wishing well we go

Everyone knows anything goes
We are the lotus kids
Better take note of this
For the story

The rising moon is on the shine
The blood of scorpios a nine
Like the fear that's in the eyes of every doe
Say it now cause John and Jane would like to know

Is it safe inside your head
Songs to serenade the dead
All along I said I know no enemies
Mix it up until there are no pedigrees

Over the laws of light
Over the moon by midnight
Let's do it all this time
Everyone wishing well we go

Everyone knows anything goes
We are the lotus kids
Better take note of this
For the story

Over the laws of light
Over the moon by midnight
Let's do it all this time
Everyone wishing well we go

Enter the rolling tide
Over the ocean so wide
Let's do it all this time
Everyone wishing well we go

Everyone knows anything goes
We are the lotus kids
Better take note of this
For the story

Everyone knows anything goes
We are the lotus kids
Better take note of this
For the story

Everyone knows anything goes
We are the lotus kids
Better take note of this
For the story

    General CommentHey, Woody87, what I can say, as a Greek is the lotus is a fruit. In ancient mythology, this fruit used to grow in one specific place.If anyone went there and ate lotus, he would forget his family and friends and stay there forever.I don't know how this could be related to the song, however. (Maybe they want to forget something?)

    General CommentI reckon its about getting married.

    Let's do it all this time
    Everyone wishing well we go

    Things will never be the same
    Still I'm awfully glad I came
    Resonating in the shape of things to come
    Never waiting when I know there's only one

    Okay so it doesnt fit with the whole song, but I'd like you two do better :p

    General Commentyea it could be about marriage, "the rising moon is on the shine.." could be just about change and awaiting for that change. which something like marriage brings, or going away to college, or just moving away from a past relationship which when anthony was working on this album, he just broke up with a love. or thats what i remember, please correct me if im wrong.

    General CommentI reckon the lotus is some kind of flower...therefore we are the (flower) kids....therefore we were born in the 70's...therefore i might be wrong? therefore lets ask anthony.

    General CommentHold on.

    Guys, they weren't born in the 70s.

    They released their first CD in 1984.

    General Commentthey were born in 62 (john in 70) a lotus is a flower from india i think, conected with hippies. it doesn't have to be about when they were born, they're just saying that they're hippies i guess. i love this song and i love lotus's and i like the bit that mentions scorpios (another hippie reference sort of) cos im a scorpio.
