Green Heaven
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


About this planet, there is something I know
There's a very big difference between above and below
A friend foe, or bro, leave your body on the floor
Let your spirit fly away like the soul of a crow
Here, above land, man has laid his plan
And yes, it does include the Ku Klux Klan
We got a government so twisted and bent
Bombs, tanks and guns is how our money is spent
We got V.D., heroin, greed and prostitution
Tension, aggravation, L. Ron Hubbard solution
Not to mention hard-core chemical pollution
If you think you're just away, you're in a mental institution
And that's a heart felt shame
'cause everyone's crazy, everyone's the same
So, why should only Larry, Curly and Moe be to blame?
Time now to take you to a different place
Where peace lovin' whales flow through liquid outer space
A groovin' and a gliddin' as graceful as lace
A never losing touch with the ocean's embrace
Diviner than the dolphin, that there is none
'Cause dolphins just-a like to have a lot of fun
No one tells 'em how their life is run
And no one points at them with a gun
They have a lot of love for every living creature
The smile of a dolphin is a built in feature
They be movin' in schools but everyone's the teacher
Someday mister dolphin, I know I'm go'n to meet you
Back to the land of the police man
Where he does whatever he says he can
Including hating you because you're a Jew
Or beating black ass, that's nothing new
Trigger happy cops, they just like to brawl
They use guns, clubs, gas, but that's not all
They got puke, ridden prisons and sex sick jails
Fuck the poor, if you're rich you pay the bail
So support your police, support your local wars
That's the way to open economic doors
Why do we do it? 'Cause the president's a whore
We assume the position to sell the ammunition
What the fuck? It's the american tradition
Along with going fishin' apple pies in the kitchen
Isn't it bitchin' seeing dead men in ditches?

Rest in Peace, Jack!

On average, Anthony's voice in this album was deeper than in any of the albums after Mother's Milk, and he was 21 then. Also, cool lyrics.

Daniel Munder

Good god what a deep jam. Fucked up topic. And then that dolphin part is so sweet. Then the way the song ends from there. Shits unreal.

Love that bonus track version of this too.

The intro of this song is good, a part of this song says Ku Klux Klan, these words also appear in the lyrics of The Power Of Equality , L. Ron Hubbard is mentioned in the song , the letter is very deep in the government, the evil of the people, the wars etc

Lisa Miller

Thank you Forrest George for posting the lyrics. I've been thinking about these lyrics a lot since George Floyd's death. Thank you Anthony for writing this what?? like 40 years ago. I wish everyone could hear this song, truer now than ever before.
