"We Believe" as written by and Chad G Smith Michael Peter Balzary....
The curtain
Is open
A head to
Put dope in
Now we will
Come clean it
The future
We've seen it
No, no, I know, I said, no, no

It's like a dream
That falls away
Into the night
Where we can play
I'm on a train
One happy day
Two eyes for sight
Three times I pray

Ooh
Soda pop
We've got to set up shop
And when the weather comes
We've got a pressure drop
We don't know
But everyday I go
To see what I can bring
Into a cameo
Oh oh oh no

We believe
We believe
Climb a tree (we believe)
For monkey business
Write a check out to forgiveness
All the world on half an acre
Pushing dirt into a Quaker

The mission
The method
The downfall
Arrested
'Cause it's not
The first time
Nor is it
The worst time
No no oh no

To see the bird
Without a care
For in a word
It's nice out there
In a tree
My mama bear
Will be all right
With proper care

Hey hey hey do

Boomerang
Into a bigger bang
A little cry of love
Because they cannot sing
Cherokee
What did the pharaoh see
Another time and space
Another place to be

We believe
We beieve
We believe
We believe
Climb a tree
For monkey business
Write a check out to forgiveness
All the world on half an acre
Pushing dirt into a Quaker

Climb a tree
For monkey business
Write a check out to forgiveness
All the world on half an acre
Pushing dirt into a Quaker

The motive
The measure
The purpose
The pleasure

The risk is
It worth it
The disc is
It perfect

I found you
Amongst them
The flower
With young stem

Disparage
The broken
The marriage
Alopin'

    General Commenti think this kind of represents anthony's life in some way. he had his drug problem in the beginning but that passed. and it kindsa leads on from there. idk these lyrics are really random but thats one thing that sets this awesome band apart. thats something to start by.

    General CommentThe risk is
    It worth it
    The disc is
    It perfect

    I read on the Rolling Stone website that these lines are about the album Stadium Arcadium, and Anthony being afraid it won't live up to the hype.

    General Commenti just think its about some of his insecurities..like hwo rolling stone said he "confessed a fear" by saying the risk is it worth it the disc is it perfect...and maybe throughout the song he references his past drug problems. so many of their songs are so powerful because of the deeply personal approach they take to making their music...i think that no one but them is really supposed to know the true meaning of any of their songs. it's their personal expression through art, but it's open to interpretation.

    General CommentDuring the chorus, you can hear some kids from John Frusciante's mum's church singing.
