Californication Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (34)

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

It's 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
It's 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 you're waging

First born unicorn
Hardcore soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my ferry 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
It's Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population
Everybody's been there
And I don't mean on vacation

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

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't 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 you're craving

First born unicorn
Hardcore soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

new world order | Reviewer: john is god | 9/15/14

This song references the nwo so much . Psychic spies are remote viewers . Population control is mentioned as the elite already are doing with flouride , vaccines and gmos . One of the reasons john left the band is because they were totally infiltrated by the shadow government as they grew bigger and had more influence . John had his awakening , he knows the truth

neutral | Reviewer: coyote | 4/14/12

the song feels neutral to me. its just telling you whats really going on. or at last what they want us to believe what is going on. i heard the personels gets quarantined to produce some of their best albums. i think some artists work partialy to the elitist agenda. some of their work is by demand and some are song of hopes. well, i dont really know, perhaps all of them are supporting the hidden agenda. they say hope is the funniest joke ever. LOL

It's a Great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/11/11

I've searched the lyrics in google via mobile phone,found and saved them in "saved pages" of Opera,but first I downloaded the song from in my phone 'cause I've always liked it whatever the meaning of the song it makes a melodious and nicely rhythm of the singing by Red Hot Chilli Peppers,and I've read both the lyrics and all the comments and found that almost everyone who've listened to it loves the song but in their own way :) comment by David Archvadze,29 y.o

Media power of seduction, not sex. | Reviewer: Jandro | 9/23/10

What would you do to be on demand, to be part of a selected group?

Would you become a slave of the media and of the brands?

You have information, but is it enough to avoid you make wrong things to be belong to a group of teens (to be in)?

I believe the music is not about sex, but seduction. The mediatic seduction acting over th people's minds, making a brain wash, driving people to the seek of a perfect body or to force them to get what they want - but what they want is what the media tells him to believe they want.

This is how I see this music.

my opinion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/22/10

excuse me but this song is not about the influence of california on the world its about the "evolution" for lack of a better word of the american dream. its about how people in America have mis-shaped the american dream of freedom and equality into a vision of fame money and women. and dude who said "i undestand there's a deeper meaning in the lyrics" but still insists on argueing about the true meaning. shut up u dont know what your talking about

its about prostitution | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/7/10

this song is about prostuition selling people for sex. it is just a factor of california alot of people over look. it is a sad thing to know we are trying to stop it in other countries but not in our own.

I knew it wasn't about sex | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/31/10

My mom said that this song was all about sex. I looked up these lyrics to prove her wrong. It's basically about being famous (yes, I know there's more to the song than just that). To Rachel, who said she was a teacher. I hope you aren't a spelling or grammar teacher. You spelled analyze wrong and there were grammar mistakes in your comment.

To the person below ME; | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/4/10

I DO know what I'm talking about, thank you. Leia is not the active leader of the resistance, no. But her adoptive father, Bail Organa, was in the royal family of Alderan and was one of the founding members of the alliance (and the presumed financiar) along with senators Mothma, Amidala, and Bel Iblisso. He was also the only one who pretended to remain loyal to the empire to continue feeding information to the rebel alliance. So yes, while Yavin IV at the time housed the rebellion, Palpatine attempted to destroy those he considered to be responsible for birthing rebellion, thus justifying how I perceived the lyric to be interpreted as. Maybe YOU should know what you're talking about.

To the person below me: | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/10

I think you're right about the song having a deeper meaning, but you made a mistake in your comment.

Alderaan is not the home of the rebellion in star wars, it's princess leia's homeworld. The rebels come from lots of different planets, luke come from tatooine, han comes from correllia, and chewie comes from kashyyyk. Princess leia isn't event the leader of the rebellion, mon mothma and admiral ackbar are. You may think you're a nerd, but you don't know what you're talking about.

Deeper Meaning? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/16/10

Maybe I am just paranoid, but maybe there is deeper meaning to the song? Hinting at the "Californication" of the world seems to me to be an allusion to the new world order. (Youtube if you are clueless) Simple lines make me think of this;
Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population
Everybody's been there;

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation;

And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication;

And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication
(remember Alderan was the home world of the rebellion to the empire in Star Wars which was destroyed by the empire after they desolved democracy, I know I'm a nerd)

Just things to think about people, alot of artists have connections to the new world order or other secret societies such as the freemasons and reference them constantly (see Jay-z / rheanna).

Misinformation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/12/09

This song is about many issues afflicting todays society. Actually its mostly about the creep of americanisation across the world. Basically: Misinformation - brainwashing - Dumb down the population - easy manipulation. That rhymed ^^.

comments and suggestions | Reviewer: Rachel | 6/9/09

I read most of the comments. Everyone gets a perspective and that's healthy for the brain (I say this as a teacher that I am). One comment was about not tearing apart the song to find a meaning for it, so you can enjoy it. People! Tear apart every song, every book, every poem, and analize them!! The meaning of so many things (yeah even in this song) lays in them. That is what I teach! To analize absolutely everything, even the newspaper. The human been wants to say things out front but most of the times he doesn't, and hiding what he wants to say in a text...well we are masters in the way. This songs IS about stereotypes and snobs, living a shallow and superficial lifestyle. And of course, those who crave for that, but are a little far away.

NOT ABOUT SEX!!!! | Reviewer: Kayla | 6/2/09

come on ppl. this song is definately not about sex. Yeah sure, maybe a few parts but thats not the overall meaning of the song.
Dani California and Californacation are the same
songs tell and describing how much of an influence
California is to all the places in the world who
try to immitate it. This song describes its stereotypes and its flaws. Its shows the true nature of those who live there and who want to live there.
Bottom line california is great and so is this song.
