Shallow Be Thy Game
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


I was not created
In the likeness of a fraud
Your hell is something scary
I prefer a loving god
We are not the center
Of this funny universe
And what is something worse
I do not serve
In fear of such a curse

Shallow be thy game
Two thousand years look in the mirror
You play the game of shame
And tell your people live in fear

A rival to the way you see
The bible let him be
I'm a threat to your survival
And your control company

You'll never burn me
You'll never burn me
I'll be your heretic
You can't contain me
I am the power free
Truth belongs to everybody

To anyone who's listenin'
You're not born into sin
The guilt they try and give you
Puke it in the nearest bin

Missionary madness
Sweep up culture with a broom
Trashing ancient ways
Is par for the course
It's fucking rude

To think that you're above
The laws of nature is a joke
Purple sashes feeding masses
Smoke on which to choke

I might be a monkey
When it comes to being holy
Fundamental hatred
Get down on your knees and

You'll never burn me
You'll never burn me
I'll be your heretic
You can't contain me
I am the power free
Truth belongs to everybody

Evan Zaremba

That song was fantastic. It has not been performed live since 1996.

sloppy drums

I think Josh performs songs from one hot minute. John wouldn't but I could be wrong.

Smokey Bear

You are a funny one Evan.

Bruno Geraldo

navarro is brilliant in this underrated album

Graeme Fraser

Favourite track on OHM. Favourite RHCP albums are this, Blood Sugar and Mother's Milk in no particular order. All three capture a crazy but good period in my life.

Eino

Big agree on this
