Persistent mystic faults my vision
Its like always this point of collision

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

Three pound of love
About to burst
Inside my three pound
Universe

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

These are the melancholy mechanics of my mind
Symbols I've been given to express my goal
Always come up short
You know they just don't get that low

Its raining in my cranium
My head feels like a stadium

These are the melancholy mechanics of my mind
Quick release chemicals strike with incomprehensible precision
Bio organic electronics targeting microscopic destinations of devastation

Cleaner than light
Meaner than a laser fight in the night 2000
Billions of micro maniacs unknown to most as the uncontrollable soldiers
Of suffering succotash
Instantaneous infiltration leaves me with a case of bustation, frustration,
Alone in the constellation of alienation detached from empty conversation
I wait
I wait
For the waaaaaave to break.

    Yep, great song! One of the first I heard from RHCP, and also the most mellow...it's pretty obvious it's about being depressive and introspective

    just have to mention that only the peppers can pull off the talking thing that he does at the end, because of the metered lyrics and the unique guitar... amazing.

    Those lyrics can't be right. Very positive it says "Psycho-exist point of collision."

    Yeah, it says "Psycho-exist point of collision" instead of "its like always this point of collision".

    And it seems to be about being high on drugs and things that happen in your mind when you're trippin'.

    rhcpobsession, your obsession has led you to a very large knowledge base, and some great critical thinking

    I'd say the most mellow song is actually 'If' off of Stadium Arcadium.

    The sad workings or mechanisms of his mind. Is what I get from "these are the Melancholgy Mechanics of my mind."

    When he says "it's raining in my cranium." I guess it's all the bad drugs and shit fucking up his mind. And when he says "my head feels like a stadium," I guess its all the problems and shit he's going through that are starting to weigh heavily on him. And yeah the line is incorrect. it is "Psycho-exist point of collision".

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
