"Rivers of Avalon" as written by and Chad Gaylord Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
Deep inside these sleeping shallows
Far away where no-one goes now
Take my place in golden space
Of TV stars that no-one knows now
Deep deep mystery is talkin' to me
She's the giver of constant animation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world...

I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers of Avalon
Your supernatural energy
Part of my scenery
What I belong to is you ecstacy
Rivers of Avalon
Your faith unwavering is king

The clone of my own loneliness has got to fade
What am I known to?
Little garland in your starling
Loving waves that I've succumbed to

Deep deep mystery is talkin' to me
She's the giver of constant adulation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world...

I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers of Avalon
Your supernatural energy
Part of my scenery
What I belong to is your ecstacy
Rivers of Avalon
Your faith unwavering is king
What do you see in me?

Deep deep mystery is talkin' to me
She's the giver of constant animation
All around and ready to make a new formation
You're the reason I'm in this world...

I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers of Avalon
Your supernatural energy
Part of my scenery
What I belong to is your ecstacy
Rivers of Avalon
Your faith unwavering is king

I don't believe in everything I see
Rivers of Avalon
Your supernatural energy
All that it means...

    General Commenti think this might actually be another song about Gloria, Anthony's drug counselor.

    The lines:
    Take my place in golden space
    Of TV stars that no-one knows now
    Deep deep mystery is talkin' to me
    Shes the giver of constant animation

    Show that he thinks gloria deserves all he has, because she gave him another chance at life.

    Also, the line, "You're the reason I'm in this world" would obviously be she saved him.

    General CommentWhat a great song. I love anything that has the RHCP name attached to it. This is probably my favorite B-side song

    General Comment...first of all, i think the lyric is "your faith unwavering is KEY" not KING.
    ...given that the chili peppers recent work is concerned with spirituality, both in question and in celebration (often both-like "californication") it seems like this is one of the few which directly mentions the spiritual as a world view...both of the time they mask it with discussions of love or sociology...

    General CommentI agree with sethm... it is key not king. It seems that this song is simply about a girl that he has fallen in love with.
