"Time" as written by and John Frusciante Chad Smith....
Time
I was walking
Through a courtyard
Without shoes and
Without regard
Automatic catacombs
Take me where I want to go

All around
All in faces
It astounds
And amazes
Good to last innatural
Touch me I'm a chromosome

What time
Fascinated by the face of time
What time
I got it to give and now we're gonna make some
Time

Ultra-fine and ultralistic
Can I spy into the mystic
System down for infiltration
Open mind free of frustration

I was driving
To a safe place
And arriving
As I retraced

Yell into a telescope
Aim it at the star of hope

What time
Fascinated by the face of time
What time
I got it to give and now we're gonna make some
Time

All over the under
The smell of blood and thunder
I'm connected by the lightning rod
Giving into the beauty and
Heaven knows how well I know you

Ultra-fine and ultralistic
Can I spy into the mystic
System down for infiltration
Open mind free of frustration

All around
All in faces
It astounds
And amazes
Good to last innatural
Touch me I'm a chromosome

What time
Fascinated by the face of time
What time
I got it to give and now we're gonna make some
Time

All over the under
The smell of blood and thunder
I'm connected by the lightning rod
Giving into the beauty too and
Heaven knows how well I know you

Time

    General CommentRather Psychedellic lyrics, almost Sci-Fi. I mean mabye its about how little we know about the universe and time ( the fourth dimension) and yet the unverse we live in is so elegent and so vast.

    Also makes me think of that awsome Stargate in 2001: A Space Odyssey, with the psychedellic trip through the universe to learn the bizzare nature of the human species. ( Red Hot Chili Peppers and Stanley Kubrick rock!)
