This Ticonderoga
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


I met a man in a rock and roll band, he said won't you come with me
I let him know that I could not go, you see I get mine for free

We are all just soldiers in this battlefield of life
One thing that's for certain is my burning appetite

Step inside the emotional ride, I could use some company
Illusionary is so damn scary, I call my best friend Flea

This Ticonderoga is an element that shines
Connected by the great unknown, between us there are lines

Yes I told her that
I'm the older cat
Can I scratch your back all day?
I would not have it any other way, well

Means so much to me
Can you see that we
What are we ever gonna do when all I want to be is next to you

I took a girl from the underworld and I held her way too tight
When it's all been said and done she was not up for the fight

We are all just soldiers in this open field of time
Hoping to get with you when you get right with your mind

It's my favorite
So I savor it
I must report that life is short
So of your love I'll take ten quarts well

There's no end to this
Don't pretend to miss
You and you would not repent for sitting on my elephant and

Am I crazy to
Join the lazy zoo
All these human butterflies and
Cactus flowers swollen eyes and

I want the devil's share
Of you I do declare
Again I'm asking can I do
When all these animals want to be just like you

I met a girl with long black hair and she opened up so wide
A daffodil growing in Brazil and I picked her for my bride

We are all just soldiers in this epic loving flight
And no one that I know has ever really done it right

Done it right
Done it right
Done it right
Done it right
Whoa

Obviously the pencil-didn't you notice the English assignment, writing a poem about the human experience using animal metaphors, after the aforementioned gushing over his Ticonderoga? :)



Or else he got very stoned in Ticonderoga, NY, (where the graphite for those pencils came from when I was a kid on the east coast) and wrote a song... as with Detroit and all over California many many times.
