Shallow Be Thy Name Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (4)



I was not created
In the likeness of a fraud
Your hell is something scary
I prefer a loving god
We are not the center
Of this funny universe
And what is worse
I do not serve
In fear of such a curse

Shallow be thy Game
2000 years look in the mirror
You play the game of shame
And tell your people live in fear

A rival to the way you see
The bible let him be
I'm a threat to your survival
And your control company

Chorus :
You'll never burn me
You'll never burn me
I will be your heretic
You can't contain me
I am the power free
Truth belongs to everybody

To anyone who's listenin'
You're not born into sin
The guilt they try and give you
Puke it in the nearest bin

Missionary madness
Sweep up culture with a broom
Trashing ancient ways
Is par for course
It's fucking rude

To think that you're above
The laws of nature what a joke
oh Purple sashes feeding masses
Smoke on which to choke

I might be a monkey
When it comes to being holy
Fundamental hatred
Get down on your knees and

Chorus

I was not created
In the likeness of a fraud
Your hell is something scary
I prefer a loving god
We are not the center
Of this funny universe
And what is worse
I do not serve
In fear of such a

A curtain and a key | Reviewer: Eva | 12/26/12

I am completely in love with this song! The crazy guitars and the rebellious lyrics, ah so inspiring. I'm in the 'experimental phase' of my youth with this as my main themesong... Most of RHCP's early music tbh. I just UGHH I can't explain it, this song is great on so many levels I'm actually too lazy to write it all down 'cause once I started I'd HAVE TO FINISH IT NO MATTER WHAT and considering it's 2am here I can't be bothered.


Muhahahaha I love RHCP.

FYI the title is completely random, I couldn't think of a suiting name...

Perhaps it was the control company | Reviewer: Heretic | 9/21/11

Perhaps the control company had the Name changed to Game and, mr. Anonymous, you bought the CD before they found their glitch in the Matrix ;)

I am happy to hear that you were saved from religious brainwash. Spirituality is something entirely different, if you have chosen such a path. Indeed, I believe that many spiritually strong people are not aware of the fact, so a heretic might indeed be much closer to a loving god. A god that approves of people doing actual thinking.

Shallow Be Thy Game... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/22/10

...Is the actual title of the song, look at the CD if you don't believe me. This was the first CD I ever had and also this song very much saved me from a very crazy religious stage I was in during my early childhood. If it wasn't for this song I'd probably a completely crazy God fearing catholic. Thank you RHCP for making me the man I am today.

Shallow Be Thy Game | Reviewer: Dan | 8/5/07

Yeah, this is a great song with lyrics that I really like, but it is titled "Shallow Be Thy Game" not "Shallow Be Thy Name". Tried to submit this correction a while ago by the other method but to apparently no avail.
