Snow
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


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 known
But I need more than myself this time

Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe that 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 once 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
Look here what I say oh

The more I see, the less I know
The more I like to let it go
Hey oh, whoa, whoa, whoa

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 between the cover of another perfect wonder
And 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, whoa, whoa, whoa

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 between 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, 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

Deep 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

Folks Lyric Meaning :

1. "...Anthony Kiedis: "It's about the repeated failure to start your life anew and how difficult it can be to get rid off old ways of thinking, and destructive ideas we become so attached to."

2. "... Personally, Snow (Hey Oh) is a metaphorical juxtaposition of idealism and reality. Many people (especially the RHCP) have had their shares of hard times, but eventually all misfortunes of the past get "covered with "snow." Ultimately, people create "realities" or "wonders" (in the words of Kiedis) that mask the true substantive nature of their situation.
The song in its entirety is analgous to the postulate: "everyone views themselves (or their situation) in the light that flatters them most." Thus, the obscurest landscapes and the most jagged of edges are unified and beautified when covered with "snow." Metaphorically, "snow" is essentially the medium by which true reality is masked.

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

Additionally, the above lines serve to further the point that "snow" is the differential factor that obscures reality and idealism. As more "snow" accumulates, the less we know about the nature of what's beneath the "snow". Likewise, "The more I like to let it go", serves to illustrate the appeal of "snow," in that "snow" catalyzes dissociation with reality and initiates desire to associate more with the "ideal reality" than the "subtantive reality.""
