Around The World

All around the world 
We could make time 
Rompin and a stompiní 
ĎCause Iím in my prime 

Born in the north 
And sworn to entertain ya 
ĎCause Iím down for 
The state of Pennsylvania 

I try not to whine 
But I must warn ya 
ĎBout the girls 
From California 

Alabama baby 
Said hallelujah 
Good god girl 
I wish I knew ya 

I know I know for sure 
That life is beautiful around the world 
I know I know itís you 
You say hello and then I say I do 

Come back baby 
ĎCause Iíd like to say 
Iíve been around the world 
Back from Bombay 

Fox hole love 
Pie in your face 
Living in and out 
Of a big fat suitcase 

Bonafide ride 
Step aside my Johnson 
Yes I could 
In the woods of Wisconsin 

Wake up the cake 
Itís a lake sheís kissiní me 
As they do when 
When they do in Sicily 

I know I know for sure 
That life is beautiful around the world 
I know I know itís you 
You say hello and then I say I do 

Where you want to go 
Who you want to be 
What you want to do 
Just come with me 

I saw God 
And I saw the fountains 
You and me girl 
Sittiní in the Swiss mountains 

Me Oh My O 
Me and Guy O 
Freer than a bird 
ĎCause weíre rockiní Ohio 

Around the world 
I feel dutiful 
Take a wife 
ĎCause life is beautiful 

I know I know for sure 
I know I know itís you 

Mother Russia do not suffer 
I know youíre bold enough 
Iíve been around the world 
And I have seen your love 
I know I know itís you 

You say hello then I say I do


Parallel Universe

Deep inside of a parallel universe 
Itís getting harder and harder 
To tell what came first 

Under water where thoughts can breathe Easily

Far away you were made in a sea 
Just like me 

Chorus: 
Christ Iím a sidewinder Iím a 
California King 
I swear itís everywhere 
Itís everything 

Staring straight up into the sky 
Oh my my a solar system that fits 
In your eye Microcosm 

You could die but your never dead spider web 
Take a look at the stars in 
Your head fields of space kid 

Chorus x 2 

Psychic changes are born in your heart
Entertain 
A nervous breakthrough that makes us the
same 
Bless your heart girl 

Kill the pressure itís raining on 
Salty Cheeks 
When you hear the beloved song 
I am with you 

Chorus x 2


Scar Tissue

Scar tissue that I wish you saw 
Sarcastic mister know it all 
Close your eyes and Iíll kiss you Ďcause 
With the birds Iíll share 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view 

Push me up against the wall 
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra 
Falliní all over myself 
To lick your heart and taste your health Ďcause 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view... 

Blood loss in a bathroom stall 
Southern girl with a scarlet drawl 
Wave good-bye to ma and pa Ďcause 
With the birds Iíll share 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view 

Soft spoken with a broken jaw 
Step outside but not to brawl 
Autumnís sweet we call it fall 
Iíll make it to the moon if I have to crawl and 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view... 

Scar tissue that I wish you saw 
Sarcastic mister know it all 
Close your eyes and Iíll kiss you Ďcause 
With the birds Iíll share 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view 
With the birds Iíll share 
This lonely view...


Otherside

Chorus: 
How long how long will I slide 
Separate my side I donít 
I donít believe itís bad 
Slit my throat 
Itís all I ever 

I heard your voice through a photograph 
I thought it up it brought up the past 
Once you know you can never go back 
Iíve got to take it on the otherside 

Centuries are what it meant to me 
A cemetery where I marry the sea 
Stranger things could never change my mind 
Iíve got to take it on the otherside 
Take it on the otherside 
Take it on 
Take it on 

Chorus 

Pour my life into a paper cup 
The ashtrayís full and Iím spilliní my guts 
She wants to know am I still a slut 
Iíve got to take it on the otherside 

Scarlet starlet and sheís in my bed 
A candidate for my soul mate bled 
Push the trigger and pull the thread 
Iíve got to take it on the otherside 
Take it on the otherside 
Take it on 
Take it on 

Chorus 

Turn me on take me for a hard ride 
Burn me out leave me on the otherside 
I yell and tell it that 
Itís not my friend 
I tear it down I tear it down 
And then itís born again 

Chorus 

How long I donít believe itís bad 
Slit my throat 
Itís all I ever

Be the one to see my flaws 
Make me bleed with painted claws

Californication

Psychic spies from China 
Try to steal your mindís elation 
Little girls from Sweden 
Dream of silver screen quotations 
And if you want these kind of dreams 
Itís Californication 

Itís the edge of the world 
And all of western civilization 
The sun may rise in the East 
At least it settles in the final location 
Itís understood that Hollywood 
sells Californication 

Pay your surgeon very well 
To break the spell of aging 
Celebrity skin is this your chin 
Or is that war your waging 

Chorus: 
First born unicorn 
Hard core soft porn 
Dream of Californication 
Dream of Californication 

Marry me girl be my fairy to the world 
Be my very own constellation 
A teenage bride with a baby inside 
Getting high on information 
And buy me a star on the boulevard 
Itís Californication 

Space may be the final frontier 
But itís made in a Hollywood basement 
Cobain can you hear the spheres 
Singing songs off station to station 
And Alderonís not far away 
Itís Californication 

Born and raised by those who praise 
Control of population everybodyís been there
and 
I donít mean on vacation 

Chorus 

Destruction leads to a very rough road 
But it also breeds creation 
And earthquakes are to a girlís guitar 
Theyíre just another good vibration 
And tidal waves couldnít save the world 
From Californication 

Pay your surgeon very well 
To break the spell of aging 
Sicker than the rest 
There is no test 
But this is what youíre craving 

Chorus


Easily

Easily letís get carried away 
Easily letís get married today 
Shao Lin shouted a rose 
From his throat 
Everything must go 
A lickiní stick is thicker 
When you break it to show 
Everything must go 

The story of a woman on the morning of a war 
Remind me if you will exactly what weíre
fighting for 

Calling calling for something in the air 
Calling calling I know you must be there 

Easily letís get caught in a wave 
Easily we wonít get caught in a cage 
Shao Lin shakiní for the sake 
Of his soul - Everything must go 
Lookiní mighty tired of 
All the things that you own 
Everything must go 

I canít tell you who to idolize 
You think itís almost over 
But itís only on the rise 
Calling calling 
For something in the air 
Calling calling I know you must be there 

The story of a woman on the morning of a war 
Remind me if you will exactly what weíre
fighting for 

Throw me to the wolves because 
Because thereís order in the pack 
Throw me to the sky 
Because I know Iím coming back 

Shao Lin shakiní for the sake 
Of his soul - Everything must go 
Lookiní mighty tired of 
All the things that you own 
Everything must go 

The story of a woman on the morning of a war 
Remind me if you will exactly what weíre
fighting for 

Calling calling for something in the air 
Calling calling I know you must be there 

I donít want to be your little research monkey
boy 
The creature that I am is only going to destroy 

Throw me to the wolves 
Because thereís order in the pack 
Throw me to the sky 
Because I know Iím coming back 

Easily


Porcelain

Porcelain 
Are you wasting away in your skin 
Are you missing the love of your kin 
Drifting and floating and fading away 

Porcelain 
Do you smell like a girl when you smile 
Can you bear not to share with your child 
Drifting and floating and fading away 

Little lune 
All day 
Little lune 

Porcelain 
Do you carry the moon in your womb 
Someone said that youíre fading too soon 
Drifting and floating and fading away 

Porcelain 
Are you wasting away in your skin 
Are you missing the love of your kin 
Nodding and melting and fading away 

Little lune 
All day 
Little lune...


Emit Remmus

The California animal is a bear 
Angeleno but the devil may care 
Summer time to talk and swear 
Later maybe we could share some air 
Iíll take you to the movies there 
We could walk through Leicester Square 
What could be wetter than 
An English girl American man 

Chorus: 
London in the summer time 
Call me now use the satellite 
London in the summer time 
Cuss me out and itíll feel all right 

Hesitate but donít refuse 
The choice was yours but you said choose 
The look she used was green and sharp 
Stabbed that boy all in his heart 
Come what may the cosmos will 
Take me up and down on Primrose Hill 
What could be wetter than 
An English girl American man 

Chorus 

Cuss me out and itíll feel all right 
Itís all right now 
Call me now use the satellite 
Itís all right 
Itís all right 

Down and out and itíll sound all right 
Itís all right now 
Itís all right 

The California flower is poppy child 
Felony sends me all the gold in your smile 
Drift away from anyone you can 
Nothing ever goes according to plan 
Though I know that every river bends 
Time to say hello to snow on the Thames 
What could be wetter than 
An English girl American man 

Chorus

Live to love and give good tongue 
Sit down get down in the sun 
Rocket to the woman is on the one

And Iíd be water if I could

Live to love and give good tongue 
Sit down get down in the sun

Must roll over when youíre told

A letter to the pet better get it to go 

Chorus 

Space is made of everything 
And Iíd be fire that I bring 
Live in a dream

Must roll over when youíre told 
Letís unzip and letís unfold 
A letter to the pet better get it to go 

Chorus 

Some come up and some come young 
Live to love and give good tongue 
Sit down get down in the sun 
Rocket to the woman is on the one 

Chorus 

Some come up and some come young 
Live to love and give good tongue 
Sit down get down in the sun 
Rocket to the woman is on the one


This Velvet Glove

Close to my skin 
Iím falling in 
Someone whoís been 

Sittiní by the phone 
Iím left alone 
In another zone 

John says to live above hell 
My will is well 

No one is waiting 
For me to fail 
My will could sail yeah 

Itís such a waste to be wasted 
In the first place 
I want to taste the taste of 
Being face to face with common grace 
To meditate on the warmest dream 
And when I walk alone I listen 
To our secret theme 

Your solar eyes are like 
Nothing I have ever seen 
Somebody close 
That can see right through 
Iíd take a fall and you know 
That Iíd do anything 
I will for you 

Sailiní for the sun 
ĎCause There is one 
Knows where Iím from 

I care for you 
I really do I really do 

Come closer now 
So you can lie 
Right by my side 

Sit alone in the sun 
I wrote a letter to you 
Getting over myself 

Your solar eyes are like 
Nothing I have ever seen 
Somebody close 
That can see right through 
Iíd take a fall and you know 
That Iíd do anything 
I will for you 

Your solar eyes are like 
Nothing I have ever seen 
Somebody close 
That was made for you 
Iíd take a fall and you know 
That Iíd do anything 
I will for you 

Close to my skin 
Someone whoís been 
Iím a falling in 

Disasters are 
Just another star 
Falling in my yard 

John says to live above hell 
My will is well 

Long to be with 
Someone to tell 
I love your smell


Savior

Dusting off your savior 
You were always my favorite 
Always my man - All in a hand 

To celebrate you is greater 
Now that I can - Always my man 

Now you see what I came for 
No one here is to blame for 
Misunderstand - All in a hand

Affecting almost everything 
The more I hear the orchestra 
The more I have something to bring 
And now I see you in a beautiful 
And different light 
Heís just a man and any damage done 
Will be all right 
Call out my name 
Call and I came 

Dusting off your savior 
Forgiving any behavior 
Heís just a man - All in a hand 

Your heroís destined to waver 
Anyone can - Always my man 

I would never betray you 
Look at me who could raise you 
Face in the sand - Safe in your hand 

You were always my favorite 
Always my man - All in a hand 

We are the red hots and 
Weíre loving up the love me nots 
The flowers in your flower pots 
Are dancing on the table tops 
And now I see you in a beautiful 
And different light 
Heís just a man and everything he does 
Will be all right 
Call out my name 
Call and I came 

Dusting off your savior 
The life that you have narrated 
You were my man


Purple Stain

To finger paint is not a sin 
I put my middle finger in 
Your monthly blood is what I win 
Iím in your house now let me spin 

Python power straight from Monty 
Celluloid loves got a John Frusciante 
Spread your head and spread the blanket 
Sheís too free and Iím the patient 

Black and white a red and blue 
Things that look good on you 
And if I scream donít let me go 
A purple stain - I know

With Dracula and Darla Hood 
Unspoken words were understood 

Up to my ass in alligators 
Letís get it on with the alligator haters 
Did what you did Ė did what you said 
Whatís the point yo whatís the spread

A purple stain Ė I know 
And if I call for you to stay 
Come hit the funk on your way 
Itís way out there but I donít care 
ĎCause this is where Ė I go 

Knock on wood we all stay good 
ĎCause we all live in Hollywood 
With Dracula and Darla Hood 
Unspoken words were understood 

Itís way out there 
But I donít care 
ĎCause this is what 
I want to wear 

Knock on wood we all stay good 
ĎCause we all live in Hollywood 

To finger paint is not a sin 
I put my middle finger in 
Your monthly blood is what I win

Feather light but you canít move this 
Farley is an angel and I can prove this 
Purple is a stain upon my pillow 
Letís Sleep weeping willow

Right On Time

One shot all I need 
Iíve got rhythm when I bleed 

ĎTil death do us part 
Break my heart so I can start 

Supercalifragilistic 
Kiss me in the futuristic 
Twisted but I must insist 
Itís time to get on top of this 

Chorus: 
Itís right on time 
Itís right on time 
Itís right on time 
Itís right on time itís right on time itís right on

Lookiní fine youíre lookiní fine get on 1999 
Itís right on time 

Discard to bombard 
Calling all you shooting stars 

Holy cow bow wow wow 
Now Iím here Iím nowhere now 

Joan of Arc reincarnated 
Maybe we could be related 
So much blood to circulate 
And so much space to decorate 
Chorus 

Plain and simple pain 
I want to but I canít complain 

Death row let us go 
Itís time to blow up for the show 

All the world reverberated 
Coming through we motorcaded 
Vibrate when we operated 
Turning up in solid stated 

Oh Lord


Road Trippiní

Road trippiní with my two favorite allies 
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies 
Itís time to leave this town 
Itís time to steal away 
Letís go get lost 
Anywhere in the U.S.A. 

Letís go get lost 
Letís go get lost 

Chorus: 
Blue you sit so pretty 
West of the one 
Sparkles light with yellow icing 
Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for 

So much as come before those battles lost and
won 
This life is shining more forever in the sun 
Now let us check our heads 
And let us check the surf 
Staying high and dryís 
More trouble than itís worth 
In the sun 

Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for 

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on 
We three hunky doryís got our snakefinger on 
Now let us drink the stars 
Itís time to steal away 
Letís go get lost 
Right here in the U.S.A 

Chorus 

These smiling eyes are just a mirror for 
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for 
Your smiling eyes are just a mirror for
