Red Hot Chili Peppers Snow (Hey Oh) Lyrics

Last updated: 07/27/2014 06:48:34 PM

Come to decide that the things that I tried
Were in my life just to get high on

When I sit alone come get a little more known
But I need more than myself this time

Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe what we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh listen what I say oh
I got your
Hey oh now listen what I say oh

When will I know that I really can't go
To the well one more time to decide on

When it's killing me
When will I really see
All that I need to look inside

Come to believe that I better not leave
Before I get my chance to ride

When it's killing me
What do I really need
All that I need to look inside

Hey oh listen what I say oh
Come back and
Hey oh lookin' what I say oh

The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go...hey oh

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

In beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's nowhere to go

When to descend to amend for a friend
All the channels that have broken down

Now you bring it up
I'm gonna ring it up
Just to hear you sing it out

Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe what we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh listen what I say oh
I got your
Hey oh listen what I say oh

The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go...hey oh

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

In beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's nowhere to go

I said hey
Hey yeah!
Oh yeah!
Tell my love now!

Hey
Hey yeah!
Oh yeah!
Tell my love now!

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

In beneath the cover of another perfect
wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's nowhere to go

I said hey
Oh yeah!
Oh yeah!
Tell my love now!

Hey
Yeah yeah!
Oh yeah!

song meaning | Reviewer: hailey | 7/28/14

Actually, if yal want to get technical, the song IS about drugs or anything else a human can get addicted to really...
It's a beautiful song about realizing how you're living your life is possibly consumed by drugs, alcohol,whatever... and starting over, or getting clean. great song

He rocks!! | Reviewer: Emily | 6/17/13

He rocks, the whole band rocks! The words are symbolic, poetic and not just dumb stuff like in some songs nowadays! Plus he is cute to boot!The rhythm is incredible and contagious-one feels like dancing or singing to the song!

leave the content alone | Reviewer: Parker | 8/20/11

Hello fellows, the content of the song is not important, the most important thing is the feeling and spirit.
Like in China, if the content of a song is agast the government, the song will be forbided to sing in public. I can not agree with this action.

are you people dumb | Reviewer: you people | 4/26/11

ok you are all trying so hard to make this song seem like theere are hidden messages i mean im sure they're are a few but if you knew anthing you would know that all of the band was clean while making this album so im pretty sure that there are no subliminal messages that you feel the need to try and decipher for us because quite frankly we DONT give a fuck

who gives a crap? | Reviewer: a happy dude that just tripped on air | 3/10/11

ok, i'm sick and tired of people digging too deep. who cares about what the background story is or the band's memiors? it's music. can't we just listen to it and enjoy it, instead of arguing about what the band is like? seriously, this song is amazing and i practically grew up with it. i don't care if its about crack or whatever. it is music. just go with it. it's making it less fun for everyone else.

whats with you guys? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/19/11

why does everthing have to be drugs or no drugs? as far as i can tell its mainly about a confused state of the writer over a troubling choice. "the more i see, the less i know,the more i like to let it go". "deep beneth the cover of another perfect wonder where its so white as snow" and "running through the fields where my tracks could be coceiled" could refer to the diffrent choices. where snow would refer to winter and the fields most likly refering to summer. complete opposites of an arguement.but considering i did not write the piece and do not personally know nor have i stuied the author, i could only offer a guess.

White as snow... | Reviewer: Farshad | 3/30/10

The song is definitely one of the best.Perfect guitar play,drums and a real beautiful text makes this song unique.Specially the intro is very heart touching.I love RHCP and their songs but now that John has left the band I hope in their new album they can be as good as they were in previous albums.I wish Josh Kilgnhofer plays as harmonic as Johnny.

interpretations | Reviewer: Zombie | 3/30/10

I figured it was about cocaine, and they had to change yayo to hey oh. Snow is an obvious euphemism for coke. The lyrics make sense in that context. The beauty of well-written music is that you can gain something whether you interpret it the way the musician intended or not. Either way, it's a great song. If Keidis says that's what he was talking about when he wrote it, then who am I to argue?

starting over | Reviewer: sandy | 1/9/10

I agree with dt...this song is about starting over, tracks in the snow can be conceled when there is fresh snow, and so the message is the past can be concealed, and there is freedom to move forward.
I do not believe this song is about addiction or drugs.

White as snow | Reviewer: Dani | 12/11/09

After reading Anthony's memoirs, Scar Tissue, I believe that he had a spiritual awakening in his effort to kick his drug habit. He talks about keeping clean and needing not only a higher power, but also to be involved in helping others get clean which is a picture of the true gospel. In the first lines he talks of getting high to experience life then goes on to say that he couldn't go it on his own. Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder is his 'saving grace' so to speak. A great song from a really great song writer-no one has lyrics and phrasings like Anthony Kiedis!

IT IS NOT DRUGS BUT THE 12 STEPS! | Reviewer: NIck | 12/10/09

If anyone else other than me has fought the battle of addiction and is CURRENTLY attending 12 step meetings on a regular basis they would know in an instant that this song is about the 12 steps which are about straring out fresh, that is what the whole program is about. And the song describes the 12 steps look them up and listen to the song, I MEAN REALLY LISTEN!

Beloved Song | Reviewer: RoxyWolf | 11/3/09

I first heard this song on the menu screen of the second Death Note song, and went absolutely insane trying to find it. It has to be one of my favorite songs.
I don't necessarily believe it is about drugs, but it may be about escaping them.. regardless, I personally think that the message is that maybe we all want to get away from our troubles and disappear into the clean white snow, to the perfect and untainted world beyond our own..

its not drugs :| | Reviewer: dt | 9/9/09

you all say its about drugs, interpret it how you think. But in an Australian Magazine Keidis stated that the song was NOT about drugs but starting fresh and new. Snow is white, white is pure, white is peace. its not about how close yayo and hey ho sound or anything. But if you strongly believe that the song is about 'past addiction' and how the song got to your soul go ahead, but its not about drugs and that came from the writer himself. I'd believe him over any random person who thinks they know lyrics better than the original creator. your all silly. listen to the song, read the lyrics and make sense of it as 'starting new'.

nice, solid beat. | Reviewer: roundglasskeys | 8/19/09

very smooth, very solid. personally I appreciate the good, strong beat they have going in this song, very steady, very addictive. as we chinese say, very "feng tao" friendly. very headbang friendly. and btw, for good quick downloads, I found that 4shared.com rocks. that's where I got most of these downloads. RHCP is definitely one of the best bands out there.

Snow | Reviewer: canadian~hottie | 7/23/09

The song is definetly about being sober and getting past drugs. The snow refers to being clean and pure like snow. The song is about hardship and the strength that it takes to getting over your addiction. It kinda reminds me of a book called a million little pieces by James Frey, which is about an alcolohic/crack addict who goes into rehab. Awesome book by the way!
