Death Of A Martian Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (12)



Bear paws and rascal power
Watching us in your garage
Big girl you ate the neighbor
The nova is over
Wake up and play
By the radio
Make room for Clara's bare feet
The love of a Martian

Tick tock and waiting for the meteor
This clock is opening another door

Lots of love just keep it comin'
Making something out of nothin'
These are the best that I
I don't know how to say
Losin' what I love today
These are the best that I
sponsored links
Lots of love just keep it comin'
Making something out of nothin'
These are the best that I
I don't know [what] to say
[Look at] what I've lost today
And these are the things that I

Blood flowers in the kitchen
Signing off and winding down
This martain ends her mission
The nova is over
She caught the ball
By the mission bell
Chase lizards bark at donkeys
The love of a martian

Let's bow our head
And let the trumpets blow
Our girl is gone
God bless her little soul

Lots of love just keep it comin'
Making something out of nothin'
These are the best that I
I don't know how to say
Losin' what I love today
These are the best that I
Lots of love just keep it comin'
Making something out of nothin'
These are the best that I
I don't know what to say
[Look at] what I've lost today
And these are the things that I

She's got a sword in case though this is not her lord in case the one who can't afford to face her image is restored to grace. Disappeared. No trace. Musky tears. Suitcase. The down turn brave little burncub bearcareless turnip snare rampages pitch color pages...down and out but not in Vegas. Disembarks and disengages. No loft. Sweet pink canary cages plummet pop dewskin fortitude for the sniffing black noses that snort and allude to the dangling trinkets that mimic the dirt cough go drink its. It's for you. Blue battered naval town slip kisses delivered by duck muscles and bottlenosed grifters arrive in time to catch the late show. It's a beehive barrel race. A shehive stare and chase wasted feature who tried and failed to reach her. Embossed beneath a box in the closet that's lost. The kind that you find when you mind your own business. Shiv sister to the quickness before it blisters into the newmorning milk blanket. Your ilk is funny to the turnstyle touch bunny whose bouquet set a course for bloom without decay. get your broom and sweep echoes of yesternights fallen freckles...AWAY!!!

The son is about fleas dog named Martian. Flea stated this in stadium arcadium and talked about how his dog always cheered them up when try were writing music earlier on in fleas garage.

Death of a Martian Review | Reviewer: Frank | 12/7/10

This is really amazing how the song just flows with itself, since The spoken-word part @ the end is just a poem anthony pulled out of a poetry book. I actually saw them perform this live in New York, and it is just a very emotional song.

It's a dog. | Reviewer: Cindy | 3/7/10

& I would rather say it's Anthony's dog, buster, no? It's explained in his biography that he sometimes had difficulties not falling into drugs again, & all he had to do is watch Buster, who had never seen him stone, & that way he resisted...

Ok it's a dog | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/2/09

If any body listens to the commentary then it explains that this song is about flea's dog that dies an she would always sit out front of the garadge. And they deceive martain as a gardian angle that would watch over them.

About Flea's daughter... ? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/8/09

One of Flea's daughters is named Clara and there is a line that says "make room for Clara's bare feet." Evidently she had comforted him through some of his moments of depression.
This is a great song though, i love how poetic the lyrics.

End Poem Explained | Reviewer: Musicologist | 1/22/09

Firstly Its my understanding that the finnal part of the song is a poem that flea wrote. At a different point in time and was not intentinally ment for the song. This is just a Breif ober view of what the poem could mean.


“She's got a sword in case though this is not her lord in case the one who can't afford to face her image is restored to grace. Disappeared. No trace. Musky tears. Suitcase.”

The key to this line is in the end. “Disappeared. No trace. Musky tears. Suitcase”
Could be referring to a Father/Mother that left early on in childhood.

“The down turn brave little burncub bearcareless turnip snare rampages pitch color pages...down and out but not in Vegas”.

Swap it around. Bearcub careless Burn. Turnip Snare = Snare drum, Pitch color pages = Music.


“Disembarks and disengages. No loft. Sweet pink canary cages plummet pop dewskin fortitude for the sniffing black noses that snort and allude to the dangling trinkets that mimic the dirt cough go drink its. It's for you.”

Pop dewskin= Drink
Dangling Trinkets = Bling,
Mimic the Dirt: Diamonds are from Earth. Also start of as something dirty. eg a lump of coal.

Blue battered naval town slip kisses delivered by duck muscles and bottlenosed grifters arrive in time to catch the late show.

"slip kisses" refer to an Affair or Adultery
"duck muscles and bottlenosed grifters" refer to sailors.

It's a beehive barrel race. A shehive stare and chase wasted feature who tried and failed to reach her. Embossed beneath a box in the closet that's lost. The kind that you find when you mind your own business.

Shehive Stare and chase: Chasing a woman around. “tried and failed to reach her” got rejected. The last bit makes it appear that the woman was an old love/crush he is remembering about.


"Shiv sister to the quickness before it blisters into the newmorning milk blanket."

A shiv is a weapon, but can also refer to The Supreme god in the Shaiva tradition of Hinduism.
“into the newmorning milk blanket” can be taken literally as what is commonly referred to as a “Wet Dream”
So it basically means sort your feelings out (for the girl in the passage before) before you become infatuated with her.

Your ilk is funny to the turnstyle touch bunny whose bouquet set a course for bloom without decay. get your broom and sweep echoes of yesternights fallen freckles...away...

Ilk is a “kind of person” and to say its funny to the turnstyle is referring to a love of music.

Bouquet seting a course For bloom with out decay. Is drawing the similaritys between an arangmet of flowers and his life, wanting all the good times without the bad.

Then finally sweeping echos of yesternights fallen freckles….away. is putting those bad times behind you and looking into the future.

Hope that helps some people.

Death of a Martian review | Reviewer: Chili Lexi Pepper | 8/25/06

This song is so unique and different...especially the end of it where its all monovoiced...I think...But this is a fantastic song and its a great listen..the lyrics are very weird but thats what makes this song so special and unique. Haven't a clue what they mean yet really...I think the Martian is a metaphore...but I still love hearing it!
