"One Hot Minute" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, David Navarro and Michael 'flea' Balzary....
I was riding
Riding on my bike
Me with my friend
We're so alike

Am I all alone
She said all we
Have is this
We just had to stop
And share a kiss

Am I all alone
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it

If I chase it I might waste it, come and spit it

Am I all alone
Am I all alone

Sitting in the fire
Get along and have some fun
Floating to be higher
Maybe I'm your special one
Silent testifier
Breathe the moon and eat the sun
Sitting in the fire

Close your eyes and click your heels
Can you believe how good it feels

Am I all alone
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it
One hot minute and I'm in it come and get it
If I chase it I might waste it come and spit it

Am I all alone
Am I all alone

Sitting in the fire
Get along and have some fun
Floating to be higher
Maybe I'm your special one
Silent testifier
Breathe the moon and eat the sun
Sitting in the fire

Say goodbye to where you got it now
Pay your father, pay your twenty, take a bow
Say goodbye to where you buy you got it now
Pay your mamma, pay your father take a bow
Say goodbye to where you buy you got it now
Pay your father, pay your twenty, take a bow

Three pounds of love inside my skull
A million more lives it's never dull
Just a few times spun, spun around the sun
A couple more or less and then we're done

Sitting in the fire, I get along and have some fun
Floating to be higher, oh, maybe I'm your special one
Silent testifier
I'll breathe the moon and eat the sun
Sitting in the fire

    General CommentAhh.. Can't believe - only 2 comments?! Imo, all One Hot Minute CD is (lyrical) an acid trip diary.. Sad, melancholic, painfull. AK searches the way out of Minotaur's Maze (his longing of Hillel, John - but not only, there is sth about River Phoenix and Kurt Cobain - all of them were lost by drugs (well, John was on the way;)). But he can't find it (the way out)! So maybe.. Drugs are only way to be with them?

    That was my 0,03 PLN ;)

    I got back to One Hot Minute 2 months ago. And I find it much more attractive.. I think I understand more. I love this CD.

    General CommentThis is definitely a sort of musical journey through a trip. Look at this song and compare it to others off the album such as "My Friends" or "Airplane" and you'll see the highs and lows of drug use

    General Commentyeah im actually now getting into what they mean by this album and can now listen to it all at once without stopping.
    see i have wee problem with listening to drug meaning songs and i can actually react to the songs more than ever.
    i think that AK felt really alone at this time in his life cuz flea was too busy looking after his family, looking after john and trying to play guitar for dave that he wasnt paying mush attention to AK and he decided to go on drugs (acid trips) and he felt lots of regert put on him like a big load of very heavy drugs.
    sorry im almst in tears now soory if i misplaced anything on this.
    i had to get all this off my chest
    thank you.
    i love JFon December 22, 2004   Link

    General Commentthis album is all about drugs,losts and pain, but the first time u listen to some songs like aeroplane u think that it's happy but it's still sad, that's what so fantastic about the red hots, they can create anything they want

    General Commenttwo things, first Navaro claims this is one of the few songs on the album that sound too "pop" so he doesn't like it. Which makes me love the song even more. Second, JF claims to have never heard anything off of this album, that's bs I'm sorry, you'd trip over hearing warped, or aeroplane somewhere...AK definitely had to be lit when he wrote this song

    General Comment"Close your eyes
    and click your heels
    Can you believe
    how good it feels?"

    This is the single greatest line in any song. It's so powerful and beautiful.
