This song is a call for an eye opening, with references to the filmed 1st moon landing @ Universal Studios by Stanley Kubrick. You wouldn't want to know but Corey Feldman talks about it. Do a little research even if @ 1st it seems far fetched. He hated mainstream concepts, which is what this song is basically about.Also referencing the elite who would definitely have reason to "praise control of population". Movies & tv shows are written to reveal things to us all the time. Then when it said "spheres" it could mean a variety of things.

This cleft chin could be compared to a war trench, hence the "is that war you're waging? It seems like this is criticizing (making fun of) people going too far with surgery and ending up with enormous cleft chins that don't even look natural anymore, but more like a huge chasm on their jaw line!!

Oh well I might be wrong, but that's my take on this line =)I wonder how many people in Cali listened to this song, looked at themselves and said, "Wow.

This song has always been one of my favourites because every lyric is packed with meaning, every beat of music is well-constructed, the themes of the song seem to ring a bit more true every day, and most important, listening to the song I get the impression that the Chili Peppers really cared about this one.

The reference to Kurt Cobain and "Cobain can you hear the spheres singing songs off station to station" probably is talking about the spheres of the galaxy- the sun the moon etc.

Thanks ahead to those who were curious enough to research for themselves... In the song, when it says "And Cobain can you hear the spheres singing songs off station to station."...... He was the singer of Nirvana and he died by committing suicide (supposedly).

But if you look it up, a foo fighter was a term used in WWII to describe UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena.

The "station to station" part is a reference to a David Bowie album and Nirvana covered one of the songs off of that album. Doesn't anyone else think this song contains multiple references to particular movies?
