Search & Destroy
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics

I'm a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys

Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby detonate for me

Look out honey, 'cause I'm using technology
Ain't got time to make no apology
Soul radiation in the dead of night
Love in the middle of a fire fight

Honey gotta strike me blind
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby penerate my mind

And I'm the world's forgotten boy
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy
And honey I'm the world's forgotten boyt
The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy

Forgotten boy, forgotten boy
Forgotten boy said hey forgotten boy

I miss this aggressiveness of them...


@Femme Fatale Maybe the next album will be a mix of Californication and BSSM vibes? Who knows with John's return.
In their mindset I really believe they want to do another Give it Away on the new album so they can have that energy back live in concerts.

Femme Fatale

I think dude means he misses their energy. Almost inevitably, as bands age, they all pretty much tend to get...softer. As far as the Peppers go, just listen to BSSM then Californication side by side (I'm leaving out the gap album produced when Frusciante was on hiatus). Anyway, the difference is undoubtedly like night and day. I think that's all OP was trying to say. ;)


@Andrey Kusanagi Actually Anthony's voice is kinda low compared to the other instruments
