Some of the chances we take,
To make the money we make.
Manufacturing disease
The creature we can see

I'm pleased it some other day
And I've got something to say
You don't need love
So get under the rock

Now, I have a mutated brain
It is the form that's been made
You got for broke
With your prog rock show

Don't you know what I mean?
The sick things that I've seen
When you don't fall down
There's a piercing sound

It was the sky that we learned
That we're to spy on the bird
The clouds all feel
Where we don't feel real

It was implied to make a caption
"It's a pain world", is her reaction
We've answered why it's not been action
we blow the ghosts, is this our faction

This was the movie we made
And we were shooting to fate
We gather dust when you said it's a must

And in the end that we shake
It is the function that's fake
We don't feel real
You don't know how it feels

Now, we've given up a lot
And we've gone right past the spot
We're fueled inside
It's the must that we hide

It was implied to make a caption
"It's a pain world", is her reaction
We've answered why it's not been action
We blow the ghosts, is this our faction

Now, I have a mutated brain
It is the form that's been made
You got for broke
With your prog rock show

It was implied to make a caption
"It's a pain world", is her reaction
We've answered why it's not been action
We blow the ghosts, is this our faction

Blow

    General Commentshit me this song is amazing I can't believe no one has commented yet - perhaps johns best song at thats ridiculous. The guitar in this is pure insanity and the singing alternating between the falsetto and that crazy hoarse scream is genious.

    I don't have a clue on the lyrics though...

    General CommentI think the lyrics talk about the time John was in RHCP before leaving the band for the first time. Looks like he didn't like the fame and didn't like the fact they were treated like products. Also, there's some girls telling him that this was a "pain world".
    The "We've given up a lot" strophe seem's to say they have given up a lot of good things to get where they got and that they've gone too far.
    That's what I think, anyway.

    Also, I think it's "The cloud are thin", not "all feel"

    General Commentmmm... I'm listening to this song for the millionth time and a comment about what a "Great opener for ATAXIA" this song is made wish I had the album in my hands... This summer I'm going where I buy my cd's all the time (almost half the price of my city) and I don't know if I'll find this... but I want it...
    But I'll settle with any of John Frusciante's album though.... I don't have a problem with that xD
