[INTRO]

Am  F   Am  F
Am  F   Am  F


[VERSE I]

Am
Psychic spies from China
       F 
Try to steal your mind's elation
Am
Little girls from Sweden
         F   
Dream of silver screen quotations
    C                 G
And if you want these kind of dreams
     F        Dm
It's Californication
Am  F   Am  F


[VERSE II]

         Am
It's the edge of the world
           F
And all of western civilization
    Am
The sun may rise in the East
            F
At least it settles in the final location
     C               G
It's understood that Hollywood
      F        Dm
sells Californication
Am  F   Am  F


[PRE-CHORUS I]

Am
Pay your surgeon very well
   F
To break the spell of aging
Am   
Celebrity skin, is this your chin?
    F
Or is that war your waging?
Am            F
First born unicorn
Am             F
Hardcore soft porn

Dream of Californication
Am  F   Am  F


[VERSE III]

Am       
Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
      F
Be my very own constellation
  Am
A teenage bride with a baby inside
F
Getting high on information
    C                   G 
And buy me a star on the boulevard
     F        Dm
It's Californication
Am  F   Am  F
 

[VERSE IV]

Am
Space may be the final frontier
         F
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Am       
Cobain can you hear the spheres
        F
Singing songs off station to station?
     C            G
And Alderon's not far away
     F        Dm
It's Californication
Am  F   Am  F


[PRE-CHORUS II]

Am
Born and raised by those who praise       
   F               
Control of population 
 Am
Everybody's been there and
  F
I don't mean on vacation
Am            F
First born unicorn
Am            F

[VERSE V]

   Am   
Destruction leads to a very rough road
       F
But it also breeds creation
    Am
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
        F
They're just another good vibration
    C                    G
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
     F        Dm
From Californication
Am  F   Am  F


[PRE-CHORUS III]

Am
Pay your surgeon very well
   F
To break the spell of aging
Am
Sicker than the rest there is no test
    F     
But this is what you're craving
Am            F
First born unicorn
Am            F
