Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Blood sugar sucker fish
In my dish
How many pieces
Do you wish
Step into a heaven
Where I keep it on the soul side
Girl please me
Be my soul bride
Every women
Has a piece of Aphrodite
Copulate to create
A state of sexual light
Kissing her virginity
My affinity
I mingle with the gods
I mingle with divinity

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar crazy
She has it
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Glorious euphoria
Is my must
Erotic shock
Is a function of lust
Temporarily blind
Dimensions to discover
In time
Each into the other
Uncontrollable notes
From her snow white throat
Fill a space
In which two bodies float
Operatic by voice
A fanatic by choice
Aromatic is the flower
She must be moist

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar crazy
She has it
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar crazy
She has it
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby
She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar crazy
She has it
Sex magik, sex magik

Blood sugar baby




She's magik
Sex magik, sex magik

The opening line, "Blood sugar sucker fish in my dish," is a metaphor for the addictive nature of sex and the desire to constantly have it. The lyrics then go on to talk about stepping into a heaven where the singer keeps it on the soul side, with every woman having a piece of Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and sexuality. The concept of copulation to create a state of sexual light is then introduced, along with the singer's affinity for kissing virginity and mingling with the gods and divinity.

THE POWER OF EQUALITY
I've got a soul that cannot sleep
At night when something just ain't right
Blood red but without sight
Exploding egos in the night

Mix like sticks of dynamite
Red black or white, this is my fight
Come on courage, let's be heard
Turn feelings into words

American equality has always been sour
An attitude, I would like to devour
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

Right or wrong, my song is strong
You don't like it, get along
Say what I want, do what I can
Death to the message of the Ku Klux Klan

I don't buy supremacy
Media chief, you menace me
The people you say 'cause all the crime
Wake up motherfucker and smell the slime

Blackest anger, whitest fear
Can you hear me, am I clear
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

Well, I've got tapes, I've got CD's
I've got my Public Enemy
My Lilly white ass is tickled pink
When I listen to the music that makes me think

Not another, motherfuckin' politician
Doin' nothin' but something for his own ambition
I never touch the sound we make
Soul sacred love, vows that we take

To create straight what is true
Yo, he's with me and what I do
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

Madder than a motherfucker, lick my finger
Can't forget 'cause the memory lingers
Count 'em off quick, little Piccadilly sickness
Take me to the hick, eat my thickness

I've got a welt from the Bible belt
Dealing with the hand that I've been dealt
Sitting in the grip of a killing fist
Giving up blood just to exist

Rub me wrong and I get pissed
No I cannot, get to this
People in pain, I do not dig it
Change of brain for Mr.Bigot

Little brother do you hear me
Have a heart oh come get near me
Misery is not my friend
But I'll break before I bend

What I see is insanity
What ever happened to humanity
What ever happened to humanity
What ever happened to humanity
IF YOU HAVE TO ASK

A wannabe gangster thinkin' he's a wise guy
Rob another bank, he's a sock 'em in the eye guy
Tank head, Mr. Bonnie and Clyde guy
Look him in the eye, he's not my kinda guy
Never be confusion proof-uh
Pudding's sweet but too aloof-uh
Orange-eyed girl with a backslide dew said
Yo homie, who you talkin' to?
A backed up paddywagon mackin' on a cat's ass
One uppercut to the cold upper middle class
Born to storm on boredom's face
Add a little lust to the funky-ass Flea bass
Most in the race just lose their grace
The blackest hole in all of space
Crooked as a hooker, now suck my thumb
Anybody wanna come get some?

you'll never know
Funky motherfuckers will not be told to go
(If you have to ask) you'll never know
Funky motherfuckers will not be told to go-o-o-o

Don't ask me why I'm flyin' so high
Mr. Bubble meets Superfly in my third eye
Searchin' for a soul bride, she's my freakette
Soak it up inside, deeper than a secret
Much more than meets the eye
To the funk I fall into my new ride
My hand, my hand
Magic on the one is a medicine man
Thinkin' of a few
Taboos that I ought to kill
Dancin' on their face
Like a stage in Vaudeville
I feel so good, can't be understood
Booty of a hoodlum rockin' my red hood

you'll never know
Funky motherfuckers will not be told to go
(If you have to ask) you'll never know
Funky motherfuckers will not be told to go-o-o-o
BREAKING THE GIRL

FUNKY MONKS

SUCK MY KISS
