"True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" as written by Jack Sherman, Cliff Martinez, Anthony Kiedis and Michael Peter Balzary....
Hoo, Lord

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
The farther west, the farther out
Yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
Just don't show me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust
I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't kill coyotes

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse through the Hollywood hills
The farther west, the farther out yeah, that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

Well, I'm gonna ride a saber tooth horse Through the Hollywood hills
Just don't tell me anything 'cause that's the way I feel
Well, I dig the dirt an' I dig the dust I barbecue my meals

Ridin' wild on a paisley dragon Through the Hollywood hills, yeah
Huh, Hollywood hills

Passion dripping from the coyote's eyes
He can taste his blood
An' blood never lies pale face die

True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't
True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't
True men don't kill coyotes
True men don't

    General CommentTheres obviously the struggle between native americans and white settlers (pale face die), but i think its also about the struggle to stay, for want of a better word, normal, while everything becomes the same (Hollywood), and the bands decision not to buy into the Hollywood scene (ride... THROUGH the Hollywood Hills)
