Californication
Psychic spies from China Try to steal your mind's elation
Little girls from Sweden Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

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

Pay your surgeon very well To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin Or is that war your waging

First born unicorn Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication Dream of Californication

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

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
And Alderaan's not far away It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise Control of population
everybody's been there and I don't mean on vacation=20 Chorus=20
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

Pay your surgeon very well To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest There is no test
But this is what you're craving

First born unicorn Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication Dream of Californication

* you float like a feather * in a beautiful world
* i wish i was special * you're so fucking special
* but i'm a creep * i'm a weirdo
* what the hell am i doing here * i don't belong here

* i don't care if it hurts * i want to have control
* i want a perfect body * i want a perfect soul
* i want you to notice when i'm not around

* what the hell am i doing here?
* i don't belong here * i don't belong here

Gangsta's paradise
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life And realize there's nothing left
'Cause I've been blasting and laughing so long
That even my momma thinks that my mind has gone
But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
Me be treated like a punk, you know that's unheard of
You betta watch how ya talking And where ya walking
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip but I gotta loc
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke Fool,
I'm the kinda g that little homie's wanna be like On my knees in the night
Saying prayers in the street light

Been spending most our lives Living in a gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives Living in a gangsta's paradise

They got this situation, they got me facing I can't have a normal life,
I was raised by the state So I gotta be down with the 'hood team
Too much television watching, got me chasing dreams
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my ten in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I'm a low down gangsta, set tripping banger
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger Fool,
death ain't nothing but a heart beat away I'm living life do or die,
what can I say? I'm twenty-three now but will I live to see twenty-four
The way things is going I don't know.

Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me?
Power in the money, money in the power Minute after minute, hour after hour
Everybody's running, but half of them ain't looking at what's going on in the kitchen
But I don't know what's cooking.
They say I gotta learn But nobody's gonna teach me
If they can't understand, how can they reach me?
I guess they can't I guess they won't, I guess they front
That's why I know my life is out of luck, foo!

Hazard
My mother came to Hazard when I was just seven
Even then the folks in town said with prejudiced eyes That boy's not right
Three years ago when I came to know Mary
First time that someone looked beyond the rumors and the lies And saw the man inside

We used to walk down by the river She loved to watch the sun go down
We used to walk along the river And dream our way out of this town

No one understood what I felt for Mary
No one cared until the night she went out walking alone And never came home
Man with a badge came knocking next morning
Here was I surrounded by a thousand fingers suddenly Pointed right at me
I swear I left her by the river I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river And leave this old Nebraska town

I think about my life gone by How it's done me wrong
There's no escape for me this time All of my rescues are gone, long gone

I swear I left her by the river I swear I left her safe and sound
I need to make it to the river And leave this old Nebraska town

Heroes
I, I wish you could swim Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever.
We can be Heroes, just for one day.

I, I will be king And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I remember standing, by the wall And the guns, shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever

Then we could be Heroes, just for one day
We can be Heroes We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes We can be Heroes
Just for one day

Karma police
* arrest this man * he talks in maths,
he buzzes like a fridge he's like a detuned radio
* karma police * arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill,
and we have crashed her party

* this is what you get, this is what you get,
this is what you get, when you mess with us

* karma police * i've given all i can * it's not enough
* i've given all i can * but we're still on the payroll * this is what you get,
this is what you get, this is what you get, when you mess with us

* phew for a minute there * i lost myself * i lost myself
* phew for a minute there * i lost myself i lost myself
* i lost myself * i lost myself * i lost myself * i lost myself.

Love of the common people
Living on free food tickets Water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through What can you do?
Tears from your little sister
Crying because she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go But you know she'll get by

Because she's living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy her a dream fo cling to
And mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and she can

It's a good thing you don't have busfare It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground You gotta walk into town to find a job
Trying to keep your hands warm when the hole in your shoe
Lets the snow come through and it chills you to the bone
So boy You better go home where it's warm

Where you can live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can And she can

Living on a dream ain't easy But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away 'Cause you take 'em in stride for family pride
You know that faith is your foundation And with a whole lot of love and warm conversation
But don't forget to pray it's making it strong where you belong

And we're living on the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can And she can
Living on the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can And she can
Living on the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can And she can
Living on the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can And she can

Rhinestone cowboy
I've been walkin' these streets so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every crack in these dirty sidewalks of Broadway
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain

There's been a load of compromisin' On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me
Like a rhinestone cowboy Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a rhinestone cowboy Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're ridin' the train that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a subway token and a dollar tucked inside my shoe

There'll be a load of compromisin' On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me Like a rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a rhinestone cowboy Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy Gettin' cards and letters from people I don't even know
