Psychic spies from 
Try to steal your    elation
Little girls from 
Dream of    screen quotations
And if you want these kind of 
It's Californication

It's the edge of the 
And all of   civilization
The sun may rise in the  
At least it settles in a   location
It's understood  
Sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very 
To break the spell   aging
Celebrity skin is this your  
Or is it   you're waging

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Cailfornication

Marry me girl be the fairy to my 
Be my   own constellation
A teenage bride with a   inside
Getting   on information
And buy me a   on the boulevard
It's Californication

Space may be the   frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood  
And Cobain can you   the spheres
Singing songs off   to station
And Alderon's not   away

Born and raised by   who praise
Control   population
Well, everybody's been  
And I don't   on vacation

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Destruction leads to a very rough  
But it   breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's  
They are just another   vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the  
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very  
To break the spell of  
Sicker then the rest, there is no  
But this is   you're craving

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication ...
