  • My tendency
    For dependency
    Is offending me
    It's upending me
    I'm pretending see
    To be strong and free
    From my dependency
    It's warping me

    So much love
    So rare to dare
    Afraid of
    Ever being there
    Take me home
    I need repair
    Take me please
    To anywhere

    Descend
    All the way

    Descended from
    Demented men
    Struggle with
    The art of zen
    Please don't look
    Too close at me
    You might not like
    What you see

    Descend
    All the way

    Everyday, warped and scared
    Of being there

    Craving
    Sends me crawling oh
    Beg for mercy
    Does it show
    A vacancy
    That's full of holes
    Hold me please
    I'm feeling cold

    Descend
    All the way

    Everyday, warped and scared
    Of being there Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH, DAVID MICHAEL NAVARRO, MICHAEL BALZARY

  • Deepkick from Montreal, QcI asked Chad Smith (at a drum clinic) why they never play any songs from One Hot Minute (my all time favourite record) and he said (with his eyes rolling) that "John, apparently never listened to any of the songs from OHM, so that's why they're not played." Which I also read in a rock magazine (interviewing John). Personally, I find that inside and kinda bull, but John is insane so it doesn't really surprize me.
  • Evan from Kali, MiThis song really impressed me, it's so powerful and different from the rest of their work.
  • Luke from Manchester, EnglandThis song has to be one of the best Chili's songs written, for sheer aggression and musicianship.
