"Factory of Faith" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Michael 'flea' Balzary and Josh Klinghoffer....
All my life I was swinging for the fence,
I was looking for the triple,
Never playing good defense

Gunnin' for the glitter,
Every hot and heavy hitter,
She was never really there so I couldn't really get her

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it

Piece of work, I was really quite a jerk
Keeping score is such a bore, a busy mind can go berserk
Oh feast on this, I was fishing for a hook
So I took a little trip, and I opened up the book

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it
Factually I, is just a medicine
Make you wanna cry, why don't they let us in?

Be my wife, I think you're right that we should mate
Tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
I got a factory of

Crack your whip, she's confessing from the hip
She was good at getting there, but not as much for round trip
Oh all this time, I was searching for a dream
I was living in and out of every other sex machine

I said
Factually I, I'm just a piece of it
Factually I, the very least of it
Factually I, is just a medicine
Makes you wanna cry, why don't they let us in?

Be my wife, I think you're right that we should mate
Tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
I got a factory of

Be my wife, I think you're right that we should mate
And tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
Late last night, I had a dream that it was great
Tell your friends, I got a factory of faith
I got a factory of

Faith
And love
And love

    General CommentIt seems to me that he is definitely talking about his time living the "rock star life" and sleeping around and doing drugs. He wants to give up that part of his rock and roll life and have a serious relationship. He's put his faith in this girl, but she was not up to it. "She was good at getting there , but not as much round-trip" seems like she couldn't commit all the way, also "Last Night I had a dream, it was great" seems to imply that his faith and love are not as valid in the real world as they are in his dreams. But ultimately it's a hopeful song. He still has faith in her, regardless of the status of their relationship. It's pretty sweet as far as "disillusioned love" songs go.
