2. 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 

BRIDGE: Am - F - Am - F

Pay your surgeon very well

Or is F

3. Marry me girl be my fairy 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 

4. 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 
C 
And Alderon's

It's Californi

Born and raised by those who praise

ConF 
trol of population 

Everybody's been there and 
I don't mean on vacation 

Ref: 

5. 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 

BRIDGE: Am - F - Am - F 
Am 
Pay your surgeon very well

To F 
break the spell of aging 

Sicker than the rest 
There is no test 
But this is what you're craving

2. Knocked out but boy you better come to
Don't die you know the truth as some do
Go write your message on the pavement
Burn so bright I wonder what the wave meant
White heat is screaming in the jungle
Complete the motion if you stumble
Go ask the dust for any answers
Come back strong with 50 belly dancers

3. Sweetheart is bleeding in the snowcone
So smart she's leading me to ozone
Music the great communicator
Use two sticks to make it in the nature
I'll get you into penetration
The gender of a generation
The birth of every other nation
Worth your weight the gold of meditation
4. This chapter's going to be a close one
Smoke rings I know you're going to blow one
All on a spaceship persevering
Use my hands for everything but steering
Can't stop the spirits when they need you
Mop tops are happy when they feed you
Jay butterfly is in the treetop
Birds that blow the meaning into bebop

5. Can't stop addicted to the shindig
Chop top he says I'm gonna win big
Choose not a life of imitation
Distant cousin to the reservation

6. Defunct the pistol that you pay for
This punk the feeling that you stay for
In time I want to be your best friend
Eastside love is living on the westend

7. Knocked out but boy you better come to
Don't die you know the truth as some do
Go write your message on the pavement
Burn so bright I wonder what the wave meant

8. Kick start the golden generator
Sweet talk but don't intimidate her
Can't stop the Gods from engineering
Feel no need for any interfering

9. Your image in the dictionary
This life is more than ordinary
Can I get 2 maybe even 3 of these
Comin' from space to teach you of the Pliedes

Outro: Can't stop the spirits when they need you
This life is more than just a read-thru

: Road Trippin' (Text)

Road trippin' with my two favorite allies 
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies 
It's time to leave this town, it's time to steal away 
Let's go get lost anywhere in the U.S.A. 
Let's go get lost, let's go get lost… 

Blue you sit so pretty west of the one 
Sparkle light with yellow icing just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for… 

So much as come before those battles lost and won 
This life is shining more forever in the sun 
Now let us check our heads and let us check the surf 
Staying high and dry's more trouble than it's worth in the sun 

Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for… 

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on 
We three hunky dory's got our snakefinger on 
Now let us drink the stars, it's time to steal away 
Let's go get lost right here in the U.S.A. 
Let's go get lost, let's go get lost… 

Blue you sit so pretty west of the one 
Sparkle light with yellow icing just a mirror for the sun 

Just a mirror for the sun 
Just a mirror for the sun 
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for… 
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for… 
Your smiling eyes are just a mirror for…
