This song is about lead singer Anthony Kiedis' drug addictions. The line, "I'm the rainbow in your jail cell all the memories of everything you've ever smelled" talks about his rehab and how he was literally locked in a cell for two weeks to get over his addictions. "I'm the bloodstain on your shirt sleeve coming down and more are coming to believe" is talking about the blood on his sleeves after shooting up. (thanks, Dan Slosh - Sydney, Australia)
The "Lowdown" and "Lido Shuffle" singer makes a habit of playing with the best in the business.
