This Is the Place Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (11)



This is the place where all
The junkies go
Where time gets fast
But everything gets slow

Can I get some vaseline
Step into a modern scene
Take a chance on that
Which seems to be
The making of a dream

I don't want to do it
Like my daddy did
I don't want to give it
To my baby's kid

This is my calling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

Hammers are falling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

This is the place
Where all the devils plead
Their case to take from you
What they need

Can I isolate your gene
Can I kiss your dopamine
In a way I wonder
If she's living in a magazine

I don't want to say it
If it isn't so
I don't want to weigh it
But I've got to know

This is my calling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

Hammers are falling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

I saw you out there yesterday
What did you want to say
A perfect piece of DNA
Caught in a flashing ray
I caught you out there in the fray
What did you want to say
A master piece of DNA
Caught in a flashing ray

Can I smell your gasoline
Can I pet your wolverine
On the day my best friend died
I could not get my copper clean

I don't want to take it up
With little Joe
I don't want to fake it
But I've got to know

This is my calling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

Hammers are falling
I said my darling
Shocking, appalling
All I can do to you

I am a misfit
I'm born with all of it
The fucking ultimate
Of love inside the atom split

I'm in a flash ray
A mash of DNA
Another poppin' Jay
Who thinks he's got
Something to say

this expressed feeling the child within | Reviewer: p. winter | 12/4/12

the lyrics grabbed me . especially about dont wanna do it like my daddy. Dont we all have some things our fathers have done that we hate? I do, I guess thats all that matters. Being an addict of some kind or another the song touched a part of my spirit that needs healing. Having children I dont want to pass this pain on to my
children or grand children. Amen.

Chili's have no other to conquer. | Reviewer: Jared | 1/19/12

The chilis have conquered all there is to conquer in the world of music, going from songs like Dosed, I could Die for you, and This is the place, to songs like Higher Ground, Parallel Universe, By The Way, Around The World. It is amazing the way they have gone into many different angles of rock and included many elements of funk and quite poetic lyrical genius.

They all rock | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/14/11

The red hot chilli peppers are one of those bands that produce songs like this on a regular basis....all of their songs are the best song they've ever done...it just depends on which one you happen to be listening to.
Venice queen
Parallel universe
Aeroplane
Dosed
Hey
Fuck...I could go on forever....

Lyrically Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/09

I have to say lyrically this is probably the best song by RHCP there is. Lyrically is so personal and emotional there is a real connection between the music and the musicians that we are missing in the pop music of today.

in agreeance with dana | Reviewer: Cammo | 1/10/08

I will have to agree with dana. RHCP really has matured. I mean Slow Cheetah on Stadium Arcadium is a long way from Higher Ground and the rest of their first hits. they're god damn poetic and it really did progress that way slowly.

The Growth of a Lyric | Reviewer: OnEdge365 | 11/17/07

Anthony's lyrics have REALLY grown over the years. You can almost see HIM maturing with the music. I love all of the lyrics he writes.

Best song By RHCP | Reviewer: Dana | 6/17/07

This song has been played close to 500 times on my computer, and many more times via cd, I love it. It is by far the best Chilis song, and one of my all time fav songs!!

great | Reviewer: the G | 6/6/07

one of there better songs on the cd behind cant stop by the way and cabron

This Is The Place | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/5/06

I'd have to say this is the best track on the By The Way album, and with awesome lyrics, too.

Good | Reviewer: Rhchp fan | 1/5/06

Good, i'd say. Good enough to be called a masterful piece of shit. Really. Fuck it, the guys are bitching around with us, don't you see?

GOOD SONG <3 | Reviewer: Chelsea | 11/3/05

This is probably the best song on By The Way, after the title track.
