Robert from Los Angeles, Cait's altitude, not attitude or i take two. you should read the lyrics frst, then you would know. i take two is not even a possibility if you listen. Attitude is not right for two reasons 1. it doen't make sense. 2. there is no need to emphasize the second sylable, whereas it is emphasized in the word altitude. altitude makes the most sense because it's talking about coming down off a high, which we know these jokers did quite often. so don't be so stupid. think, read, and listen. you might find thta your arguments will become more valid.
Triples from London, United KingdomSeems like drugs to me: "The medicated state of mind you find is overrated" "Hell of an Elevator"
Hayden from Gladstone, AustraliaIt is "i take two" and in the film clip he signals 2 fingers while saying the line.
C-man from Somewhere, NyI think the lyrics are "i take two" or " i tear in two" because "altitude" makes no sense.
James from London, Englandlove this song, the chili peppers are one of the greatest bands ever. i think the lyrics are 'everytime i lose i take two'. i thought it was another way of saying learn from your mistakes. 'come on god do i seem bullet proof' great line, for me the song is about feeling like things are going too well, it can be a strange worry.
Shruti from Halifax, United Statesis the lyric "every time i lose altitude" or "every time i lose attitude"? its reali hard to tell and different websites say differnt things.
Christopher from San Antonio, TxI think he said in an interview that he had no idea of what the song was about...
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
