Red Hot Chili Peppers "This Ticonderoga" lyrics

This Ticonderoga

I met a man in a rock and roll band he said won't you come with meI let him know that I could not go you see I get mine for free

We are all just soldiers in this battlefield of lifeOne thing that's for certain is my burning appetite

Step inside the emotional ride I could use some companyIllusionary is so damn scary I call my best friend Flea

This Ticonderoga is an element that shinesConnected by the great unknown between us there are lines

Yes I told her thatI'm the older catCan I scratch your back all dayI would not have it any other way, well

Means so much to meCan you see the weWhat are we ever gonna do when all I want to be is next to you

I took a girl from the underworld and I held her way too tightWhen it's all been said and done she was not up for the fight

We are all just soldiers in this open field of timeHoping to get with you when you get right with your mind

It's my favoriteSo I savor itI must report that life is shortSo of your love I'll take ten quarts well

There's no end to thisDon't pretend to missYou and you would not repent for sitting on my elephant and

Am I crazy toJoin the lazy zooAll these human butterflies andCactus flowers swollen eyes and

I want the devil's shareOf you I do declareAgain I'm asking can I doWhen all these animals want to be just like you

I met a girl with long black hair and she opened up so wideA daffodil growing in Brazil and I picked her for my bride

We are all just soldiers in this epic loving flightAnd no one that I know has ever really done it right

Done it rightDone it rightDone it rightDone it right
