the industry being fake ,but lets face it we all want a small piece in 2011..the faith..in peace .music of the sphere's was considered to be the most most beautiful sound possible in the universe prior to our modern understanding of how planets actually move.In the 16th and 17th century all celestrial bodies were imagined to be moving on glass spheres.The surgery reference, even the Alderon line which means they thought of a big Hollywood set instead are either making some cheap ass porn in a basement or sleeping with someone to get ahead and the "gettting to Alderan" or a roll like Princess Lea.The Cobain reference is a deeper take on making it and what it lead to...suicide.The girls lose their dream they way Cobain supposedlt felt.Great freakin'band and great son both musically and the lyrics!This cleft chin could be compared to a war trench, hence the "is that war you're waging? It seems like this is criticizing (making fun of) people going too far with surgery and ending up with enormous cleft chins that don't even look natural anymore, but more like a huge chasm on their jaw line!!
Ironically the lyric plays like a hypnotic sbrill song about a materialistic world,good people can be changed or corrupted for the trappings of fame/cobain reference is to give us a picture of talent that could nt cope with such hollywood style celeb and became isolated tragicly like anyone could ..a tidal wave could clear one place but californication is everywhere......us all maybe.........space maybe the final frontier but made in a basement.....I always think of the song as a half-mocking, almost a little haunting description of main stream images that no one can achieve.It freaks me out, but it's so true, and I guess that's why. I dont think "Space is the final frontier, but its made in a holly wood basement" has as much to do with the landing hoax.I haven't heard this one yet in the very lively discussion . I don't it has been said before, but I think that "Celebrity skin is this your chin, Or is that war you're waging?" is a reference to the cleft chin of strong male actors such as Kirk Douglas (Spartacus).The music have a very strong character, it's simple but have notes that really come from the heart and blends well with the strong and sharp meaning of the lyrics.. 4 thumbs up; other two come from my friend :=)anthony keidis first got the idea for the song on holiday in india were he was recognized on the street and he saw RHCP shirts for sale on the street and he realized how american culture has penetrated nearly every country in the word Well Mel i am from California and lived there for many years and i dont think anyone thinks of Cali like that at all.This song is just saying how most people give they're souls away for this belief that being famous is the top of everything in the world.The rotation of such spheres made the music of the spheres. "unicorn" is a word used in the swinging community for single women who swing.The obvious point is that the peppers consider "Station to station" to be one of the most important works in popular music....which of course it is. The Dorothy Stratten suggestion makes a lot of sense, but the reference to unicorn may also be dealing with this piece of the lifestyle community. I just want to add my little "something" to the discussion!Those mysterious sightings were sometimes called "balls of fire". Going back to the term foo fighter, well there is a band called the Foo Fighters that is post-grunge and Dave Grohl is the singer of the group.Dave Grohl was apart of Nirvana (which Kurt was also in) So I believe that if you translated this verse, the real meaning is: "And Cobain can you hear the Foo Fighters singing their new music ." Or its something close to that.
