Californication  

The title track of this Red Hot Chilli Peppers album has some odd lyrics about Bowie and Kurt Cobain.

I was wondering who might have interpretations with regard to these lyrics or the song in general.

Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mindís elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
Itís Californication
Itís the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
Itís understood that Hollywood
Sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war your waging

Chorus:
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
Itís Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But itís made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderonís not far away
Itís Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population everybodyís been there and
I donít mean on vacation

Chorus

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girlís guitar
Theyíre just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldnít save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what youíre craving

Chorus
