Suicide a month before I met you
Deep regrets, I never could forget you
Somehow you made your way to my decade
Ayo ayo ayo ayo my girl

In the sun, I see you with your guard down
Number one, you're moving to a hard town
Do not dismiss the promise that you made me
Ayo ayo ayo ayo, my time

Overkill you took another red pill
On the sheet is everything that you spilled
We are the ones you want to know right now
Ayo ayo ayo ayo, black light

Come again to murder your report card
Just a friend to kiss you in the court yard
You are the one I want to be stuck with
Ayo ayo ayo ayo big fight

Favor some
Way too young
Slave to none
Way too young

Say goodbye my love
I can see it in your soul
Say goodbye my love
Thought that I could make you whole
Let your lover sail
Death was made to fail

Sticky fingers find the way to take her
Crumple up another piece of paper
I know your days are numbered when it comes to
Ayo ayo ayo ayo this life

Slip away into the solar system
Straighter rays, you find a way to twist them
Some like it dark and now I know where to
Ayo ayo ayo ayo find you

Serpentine, I think she was an Aussie
Bloody hell, a common kamikaze
Give up the ghost before you go under
Ayo ayo aye ayo wonder

Kicking hard and looking for a rescue
Watch me starve was never to impress you
I would have killed the part of me to have you
Ayo ayo ayo ayo story

Say goodbye my love
I can see it in your soul
Say goodbye my love
Thought that I could make you whole
Let your lover sail
Death was made to fail

Babe I know love is a funny thing
Born to die in the eternal spring

Your flickering is more than just a small flame
Welcome to the party, it's a ball game
Pick up the stick it's time to get hit with
Ayo ayo ayo ayo my bat

Suicide is never going to save you
When I cried, it was because I came too
You are the one I want to know right now
Ayo ayo ayo ayo kiss this

    My InterpretationThis song to me is about convincing someone to live and see purpose in their life.

    "Your flickering is more than just a small flame Welcome to the party, it's a ball game"

    You're existence is more than just a drop in the bucket. Welcome to the party of life, its full of adventure, full of purpose.

    "Pick up the stick it's time to get hit with Ayo ayo ayo ayo my bat"

    its time to begin living and begin a new relationship, and be reborn.

    "Suicide is never going to save you
    When I cried, it was because I came too
    You are the one I want to know right now
    Ayo ayo ayo ayo kiss this"

    Suicide is never a solution. I cried when I came to the realization that you are the one I want to spend my life, you are the one I want to save.

    I think Anthony masterfully closes the song with ayo ayo ayo kiss this. It signifies the beginning of a relationship,just like a first kiss. Its obvious that there isn't a happy story preceding this relationship, but that Anthony is a rescuer and has realized his role and given someone purpose to live.

    The Bass/Guitar/Drums outro is one of the most stimulating RHCP outros yet, and is empowering in the same way two people coming together to make a life can be.

    I really think this song is a masterpiece that shows what this band is capable of in its new direction.

    My InterpretationLove this song, that guitar at the end is killer.
    Along with a few other songs on this album, I think this song is about Kiedis' two-year relationship with Australian model Helena Vestergaard. The end of it "say goodbye my love", the way he felt when they were together, how young she was (she was only 19 or 20 when they first got together I think) "Somehow you made your way to my decade".

    General CommentI agree with 60_miles_an_hour, it's about his ex Helena Vestergaard. I think it's a really beautiful song, and very mighty in concert.

    My favorite lyric is "Somehow you made your way to my decade". I'm in a similar situation right now (not as extreme age difference though) so this song really gets to me.

    General CommentI think that it's being in love with a girl that you know you will lose and the feeling of getting over your lost love.
