Stadium Arcadium
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Bells around Saint Petersburg
When I saw you

I hope I get what you deserve
And this is where I find

Smoke surrounds your perfect face
And I'm falling

Pushing a broom out into space
And this where I find the way

The stadium arcadium
A mirror to the moon (a mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
State of the art
Until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened
Both before and after noon (before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
Pushin' myself
And no I don't mind asking
Now

Alone inside my forest room
And it's storming

I never thought I'd be in bloom
But this is where I start

Derelict days and the stereo plays
For the all night crowd
That it cannot phase
And I'm calling

Tedious weeds that the media breeds
But the animal gets what the animal needs
And I'm sorry

The stadium arcadium
A mirror to the moon (a mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
State of the art
Until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened
Both before and after noon (before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming
Pushin' myself
And no I don't mind asking
Now

And this is where I find

Rays of dust that wrap around
Your citizen

Kind enough to disavow
And this is where I stand

The stadium arcadium
A mirror to the moon (a mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
State of the art
Until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened
Both before and after noon (before and after noon)
And I'm forming and I'm warning
Pushin' myself
And no I don't mind asking

The stadium arcadium
A mirror to the moon (a mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
State of the art
Until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened
Both before and after noon (before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warning
To you

[Verse 1]
Bells around St. Petersburg when I saw you
I hope I get what you deserve
And this is where I find
Smoke surrounds your perfect face and I'm falling
Pushing a broom out into space
And this is where I find the way

[Chorus]
The Stadium Arcadium
A mirror to the moon (Mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
State of the art until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened both
Before and after noon (Before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
Pushing myself and no, I don't mind asking now

[Verse 2]
Alone inside my forest room and it's storming
I never thought I'd be in bloom
But this is where I start
(Derelict days and the stereo plays
For the all night crowd that it cannot phase)
And I'm calling
(Tedious weeds that the media breeds
But the animal gets what the animal needs)
And I'm sorry


[Chorus]
The Stadium Arcadium
A mirror to the moon (Mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
State of the art until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened both
Before and after noon (Before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
Pushing myself and no, I don't mind asking now

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3]
And this is where I find
Rays of dust that wrap around your citizen
Kind enough to disavow
And this is where I stand

[Chorus]
The Stadium Arcadium
A mirror to the moon (Mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
State of the art until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened both
Before and after noon (Before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
Pushing myself and no I don't mind asking

[Outro]
The Stadium Arcadium
A mirror to the moon (Mirror to the moon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
State of the art until the clouds come crashing

Stranger things have happened both
Before and after noon (Before and after noon)
Well I'm forming and I'm warming (Warming to you)
To you

Fun fact about this song is that Chad was the first one at the studio playing the drum beat to this song that day just warming up. John was the 2nd one at the studio then picked up the guitar and played the guitar part to what Chad was playing then BOOM just like that they had the self title song to this album. Crazy how fast a song can form. Anthony and Flea then showed up after and finished the deal. Love this band and CAN NOT wait for what is coming 2020 and on. Completely ecstatic that John is back!!!!!! RHCP FOREVER!!!!!!

Geoff Butler

Yeah they write most songs like that

Brent Meeusen

Beata

This album was one of those "right place, right time" albums for me. I was 18 and had found out that my girlfriend at the time was knocked up. Tons of emotion at the time. Dreams of going off to college got the axe. No time to ease into growing up. I listened to both of those disks sooooo many times wondering how the hell I was going to pull off being a dad at such a young age. This album helped me through some tough times. Pulls at the heart strings.

Joanne Bird

I have goosebumps reading these beautiful comments. This album also helped me get through some crazy tough times

@Tr0llShaman they are. My family just got a new puppy. He's a Golden Retriever, names Zuko. I've got AC when it's hot and heat when it's cold.... also just got done smoking a bowl. Stressful, but life is good today. Love from Michigan.

Tr0llShaman

I hope you & your family are still doing well in these times. Reading this comment from years ago really touched my heart. I was only a few years younger than you when this album came out, and I can't imagine filling your shoes. I hope your days are full of love & warmth.
