Soul To Squeeze Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (27)



I got a bad disease
Up from my brain is where I bleed.
Insanity, it seems
Is got me by my soul to squeeze.

Well, all the love from me
With all the dying trees, I scream
The angels in my dreams, (yeah)
Have turned to demons of greed, that's me.

Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow.
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Today love smiled on me.
It took away my pain said please
I'll let your ride be free
sponsored links
You gotta let it be oh yeah.

Where I go, I just don't know
I got to gotta gotta take it slow.
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

You're so polite, indeed
Well, I got everything I need.
Oh make my days a breeze
And take away my self destruction.

It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet.
I'm on a rollercoaster,
but I'm on my feet.
Take me to the river,
Let me on your shore.
I'll be coming back baby,
I'll be coming back for more.

Doo doo doo doo dingle zing a dong bone
Ba-di ba-da ba-zumba crunga cong don bing

Like an apple gift
But I went out and never said my pleasures
I'm much better
But I wont regret it never.


Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow.
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico.
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time.

I feel ya man. It's a summer night, 3:20 am, just got home, and listening to this song. Very calming way to end the night. One of those nostalgic songs, it describes those indescribable feelings in a perfectly indescribable way, the feeling way.

Lyric suggestion | Reviewer: Matt | 8/2/13

Might I offer instead of

Like an apple gift
But I went out and never said my pleasures
I'm much better
But I wont regret it never.

Try...

I can not forget
and I will not endeavour
Simple pleasures arent as special
and/but I wont regret it, never

very relevant | Reviewer: robroy33 | 12/25/11

As a long time alcoholic with a compulsive gambling addiction, these lyrics speak to me directly. Those who can identify with compulsive gambling in particular, the behavior is completely insane, driven by greed, constant roller coaster, and I'm constantly seeking a peace of mind in my recovery. Wow, thanks for the song guys, my favorite of all time!

anon | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/17/11

i think the lyrics are i cannot for get but i will not endeavor simple pleasures are much better better but i wont regret it never meaning that he cant forget his addiction and he doesnt want to as it is part of what makes him , but he realizes the smaller things in life are more meaningful or more enjoyable

love this song | Reviewer: Lindsey | 10/12/11

It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet.
I'm on a rollercoaster,
but I'm on my feet.
Take me to the river,
Let me on your shore.
I'll be coming back baby,
I'll be coming back for more

to me this means his life is a roller coaster and the person he is with off and on is the shore (something stable in his life) and he has ups and downs but he'll be coming back for more because that is the one stable thing in his life. ORRRR it could be the shore is alcohol/drugs and that is the one thing he knows.

Just heard it; one of my favs | Reviewer: Tyler | 2/22/11

You ever have those times when your driving or riding a bus or sitting on your bed and your just happy to be alive and you just want to smile and hear a great song? Well I get that that way and this song hits the spot when that happens. It's just relaxing and no matter the person, this song brings up memories. Maybe of past relationships or loved ones who have passed away. This is just one of those songs that you turn on at 12:30am on a summer night to just chil to and have just a general calm and smooth feeling. Love it

my old take on it | Reviewer: Joe | 3/30/10

i heard that song many years years ago (take note im only about to turn 21) and i've loved it since. I think it hits chords with many people from many walks of live's and experiences. i fight alcohol problems and battle mental health. But a lot of times it still suits just a bad day, let alone when you've hurt someone you love unintentionally by your actions, or failed at something you've tried. but its sorta your promise that tommorrow or few days more, to be better and make it up to those who are cheering you on. but thats just how i take the song.

um, | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/12/09

I saw some disagreement on some of teh lines, i figured i'd throw my input in, I always thought that in the beginning he said "a-from my brain is where i bleed" you know, kinda jazzing it up, a-zip do dah, and all that foolishness, and, for the end of it, i'm still conflicted as to whether or not its "well i can not forget but i will not endeavor, simple pleasures are much better but i wont regret it never" or "like an apple gift I will not endeavor simple pleasures are much better but I wont regret it never" the latter meaning, a gift of an apple wont last long, as it will rot away. and the former meaning, since its a song about drug addiction, as most RHCP songs are, he cant forget his addiction, but he wont endeavor, or suffer through the pain of it any more, thats just my thoughts

HotChiliPepper7 | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/5/09

..... "Like an apple gift, but I won't endeavor, Simple pleasures aren't much better, but I won't regret it never." I am a huge hot chili pepper fan and I have watched this video many many times. Yeah!!!!

best song heard | Reviewer: billy jack | 8/27/09

addiction is a bad disease,I know because I'm strugglen with this sickness and it is very painful to recover, especially when there are so many reasons to turn back to that life of hurt. N.A. seems to help with my poisons, but that sometimes is not enough. People will not understand how a bad disease like addiction hurts ourselves, and other unless u've been there.

Jerome Garcia | Reviewer: Michael | 5/23/09

To me this song speaks volumes. The lyrics make me cry and smile at the same time. I miss the life I had, I miss my friend, I miss my love, and I will never forget. Frusciantis guitar work alone makes me cry. Call me a romantic, but this song always takes me by my heart.

Eric | Reviewer: Eric Mac | 1/20/09

Hmmm, drug addition. i guess just like art so are songs. it can mean different things to different people at different stages of life.. For me I want to be free... not from drugs and alchol but this system.. the money the mortgages the credit, the laws ALL of it.. I just want to be free... and BTW i really mite end up somewhere mexico.

it is what it is | Reviewer: karen w | 10/19/08

as far as the lyrics.... when I first heard someone say the lyrics were "like an apple gift," I thought it was absurd. I had always heard it "I could not forget". But then I thought about it, and it really does make a lot of sense, if one were to hear it that way. 'gone bad like an apple gift'.. I take that as a reference to the garden of Eden, where taking the gift of the apple was really a fall from grace.
I love this song, and no matter which way I choose to hear it, it is so close to my heart.
just... beautiful

Song about recovery from drugs and alcohol | Reviewer: rebecca | 9/1/08

I was two and a half years sober and very active in alcoholics anyonomous when I discoved that the lyrics are talking about the aa program and its 12 steps. It is very obvious... alcoholism and drug addicion is refered to as a disease that is centered in the mind, being normal in every other way, except when an alcoholic or drug addict drinks, they cannot stop. They will continue this behavior over and over again, although drinking and using causes great problems, hence insanity. Many above have written that this song is sad, it is actually a beautiful song about recovery. At the end, anthony states that he "I wont regret it never." Many references to life in aa and its principals.

.... agreements and additions | Reviewer: SeaCrane1 | 8/26/08

Ok... Honestly, I have no idea where Alex is would get such ideas. Like RHCP would actually say ''apple gift'' in a song. I'm sorry, but I had to go there. I totally agree with piss ant. They also forgot the last verse in the lyrics. Where I go I just don't know, I got to, (not sure on this part) gotta find what makes it go. (end unsurity) When I've found my, peace of mind, I'm gonna save it 'till the end of time. Awesome song!
