Scar Tissue Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers



Review The Song (25)


Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you 'cause
With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view

Push me up against the wall
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra
Fallin' all over myself
To lick your heart and taste your health 'cause
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Blood loss in a bathroom stall
A-Southern girl with a scarlet drawl
Wave good-bye to ma and pa 'cause
With the birds I'll share
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view

Soft spoken with a broken jaw
Step outside but not to brawl
Autumn's sweet we call it fall
I'll make it to the moon if I have to crawl and
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you 'cause
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view...

Scar Tissue from needles | Reviewer: Autumn | 9/16/12

Scar tissue from all of the track marks on his arms from shooting up... lonely view with the birds is how he feels when he's high.... Getting high feels good... but its a very lonely feeling when you've done it so long and want a way out.

My take....well our take i guess... | Reviewer: Bpage716 | 12/30/11

as an ex addict, I feel such a strong connection to this song. Idk if it is strange or if it is simply this - almost all addicts experience similar pitfalls...also for anyone who doesn't know, mister sarcastic know it all was dave navarro...i looked that one up bc i had to know...i hope all is well in everyone's life, please continue to support this great group and other peoples creative endeavors and PLEASE do not pidgeon hole any os US...i'm now a 25 year old college grad that had bad issues with drugs growing up but now i help ppl in my situation for a living...life is tough, but it is worth it...peace/love

With the birds | Reviewer: Dave | 12/25/11

When he talks about sharing the lonely view with the birds I feel it means he sees beauty in the leftovers of a hunt. For birds, wolves and other predators leave scraps from their kill, the birds see this as wonderful. In the songs metaphor I believe that he is trying to say that he sees the beauty in the victims society sees as a used up tainted mess

This Lonely View | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/11

He's talking about a world of addiction and suffering of very special people that society just pidgeon holes throws away and scorns as bagheads hookers whores no goods empty souls. It's enough to make you despair so much that you become one. Love Piece we're all humans!

Depth | Reviewer: Allie Thompson | 6/26/11

Unfortunately was overplayed by hump-the-moment DJ's while I was growing up, this song is much more than people think it is. There's so many levels to its interpretation that it makes me upset when people try to bag it and tag it, like it's some sort of generic angst song. I wish the radio would stop ruining good songs by overplaying them incessantly. The beauty of good songs like this is that it's personal to them, but open to interpretation for those who can relate in a different way. Not to have their aesthetic motivation mocked by modern society trying to fit it into a category somehow. Please, the next time you listen to good music, um that means not factory produced artists of this era, enjoy it for what it means to you. Love it for how it grasps your heart, not what people speculate.

This song.. | Reviewer: Ems | 5/15/11

I think it's a portrayal of a lonely girls life, and her experiences; abusive relationships, one night stands, epipanies, and departure from her family. Of course, this is just my interpretation without the recognizing the metaphorical factor, but it still fits the song nicely. I love rhcp.

scar tissue | Reviewer: bean.{fourteen} | 12/30/10

i think only truely poetic people can really understand the meaning of this song.
And of course only a true poetic genius could write something so amazing. Now you hear songs that have no meaning and are only used for the purpose of gaining money and poisoning the youth. flat out. no meaning of love or passion what so ever.
Thats why we have to embrace bands and songs like theese.

my take | Reviewer: Grace | 10/3/10

It's clearly about loneliness, but I think specifically about how he feels empty from all his pointless "relationships," perhaps even one night stands. The beginning talks about all the girls he's been with and how none of them meant anything to him and he's wishing for something real and meaningful. And the scar tissue is emotional scarring. He's been through a lot and none of the girls he's been with understand him.

Amor | Reviewer: Tiff | 5/19/10

I love this song so much...it's makes me wanna be lonely
These lyrics are great
And the guitar playing sounds so westcoast, it reminds of the beach
When I listen to this song
I just wanna go to a beach during sunrise on a clear winter day and be alone

my god... | Reviewer: evensecretaresto | 4/15/10

dude, i dont know if yer being sarcastic or what(cuz its hard to tell in text) but if yer not then yer a complete dumbass. you dont have to read the book to figure out that hes talking about being lonley to the birds above cuz he feels like an outsider. and scar tissue means everything he's been through, he's healing from. JESUS CHRIST!

Meaning of song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/20/10

I think this song is talking about staying in school... Because birds fly high and people get high when they are not in school... (well atleast I did) and in school people are not lonely because there's a lot of people in school. And scar tissue means a scar that you have and people and people give you tissue at school too. So it's a double meaning.

think | Reviewer: Donna | 2/12/10

Love this song "because" it makes people "think". I had an amazing grade 9 teacher who let us pick relevant songs instead of poetry to analyze for a major assignment in literature class. Taught me so much more than she will ever know, and that was 30 yrs ago. Teachers should learn from these lyrics,they mean alot to the people who hear them everyday!!

@ robert | Reviewer: TK | 12/31/09

You might be right, for most songs. But you can't deny it's about being lonely, one way or another...
And yes ofcourse the rest is vague, and actually makes little sense at all. But this song defenitly has a meaning.

Agreeable Solution | Reviewer: Robert | 12/6/09

Its a method that song writters use they keep the lyrics vague allowing you to feel in your own personal meaning to the song varies from person to person you can all say what the song means you will all be right but wrong

I think! | Reviewer: Valtheartist | 10/13/09

Well, The great thing about music is the fact that it can manifest itself into your mind to be anything the listeners creative mind can draw up!... I like reading peoples reviews because as you can see many people Percieve it very differently. My perception of the song was That he is telling his story, as well as other stories of People In situations that can lead you to eventually find yourself in this Lonely state of seclusion, depression and eventually even death. And much like any other being we are all suseptable to Lifes unfortunate happenings, and under these circumstances can we cope? Will we cope? ...who knows? Maybe you will join me with the birds and share this lonely view.
