Red Hot Chili Peppers - Magpies On Fire Lyrics




Magpgies on fire
Making love like little
Worms out on the porch can
Leave the medicine
Oh well I'm game
For anything at all

Scarecrows a liar
Spends the year alone
No one checked it out
To see if it was real
Sold you the moon
And now it's time to fall

All in all it's like the
Bird who's trapped alone inside the cage
Love

What more do you want?
How much more can you take?
I love my mistakes
I've been here before

All in all it's just
A call of something wise beyond your room
There's a changing of a major chord
Your minor threat will do, love

My gun misfired
Shot myself instead I guess
I always knew I'd be the one to lose
Last scream don't slane
Time to make a move

What more do you want?
How much more can you take?
I love my mistakes
I've been here before

All in all it's like the
Bird who's trapped alone inside the cage
Love
A bird who's going to live at half your age, girl
A bird who's never really here to say

What more do you want?
How much more can you take?
I love my mistakes
I've been here before

Least of all she's like
A bird who's now been
Freed from someone's cage

    Magpgies on fire
    making love like little
    worms out on the porch can
    leave the medicine
    oh well I'm game,
    for anything at all
    Scarecrows a liar
    spends the year alone
    no one checked it out
    to see if it was real
    sold you the moon
    and now it's time to fall
    all in all it's like the
    bird who's trapped alone inside the cage
    love

    What more do you want?
    how much more can you take?
    I love my mistakes
    I've been here before
    all in all it's just
    a call of something wise beyond your room

    There's a changing of a major chord
    your minor threat will do, love
    my gun misfired
    shot myself instead i guess
    i always knew id be the one to lose
    last scream dont slane
    time to make a move

    What more do you want?
    how much more can you take?
    I love my mistakes
    I've been here before
    all in all it's like the
    bird trapped inside the cage
    love
    A bird bout half your age, girl
    a bird who's never really here to say

    What more do you want?
    how much more can you take?
    I love my mistakes
    I've been here before
    least of all she's like
    a bird who's now been
    freed from someones cage

    Isabelle Mayor Neves

    Carascoroscovaldo tá loko?

    UncannyWeasel

    @Isabelle Mayor Neves Deve estar, essa música só tem quote bom. Dá pra quotar até o baixo.

  27. Child of Father Goro

    They could've pulled a stadium arcadium with these songs....

    Solek Wolf

    That Tato probably not a good idea to do 2 double albums in a row, but hey, I’m Beside You is avalable to purchase in vinyl edition as 2 LPs

    Joshua Wright

    Solek Wolf The vinyl version of I’m Beside You is super expensive now. Glad I got mine when it first came out.

  28. Wilian Brito

    Eu amo essa fuck música!!

  31. Suzanne Chavez

    so these aren't the songs from the album "the getaway"? I'm confused lol

  32. Tkuitheking1

    Josh is genius for composing this song in two different scales!! A major and A minor at the same time... And he made it sound amazing!!

  33. Silvana Riva

    I'm in love...

  34. Joanie Bowen

    Anthony's voice is wonderful here! Beautiful song..

    Janet Freeby

    This has a HIM "dark light" era feel to it!

  37. Defensor del Evangelio

    Chile peppers

  38. TRUvoodoo

    Wow, this is my first time hearing these 'new' tracks from 2012 lol. I really like this! I didn't get into the "i'm with you' album but this track has a really genuine chili pepper feel.

    Oliver Hernandez

    same here

    Michael Sheehy

    Yea I had no idea they released like 15 freaking songs lol

    jackillin

    I agree. I can't get into I'm With You but I adore this 'B' side album.

  39. Nik Gulley

    Anthony's vocals kinda remind me of Billie Holiday's in some places.

  40. Kamikazedude

    New chili peppers song released TOMORROW! 5th may!!!!!!!!!!!

  41. BlackButterCrunch

    this song puts the chill in chillipeppers

  42. Kamikazedude

    Chili peppers are the only guys i know who have awesome songs that dont make it to radio. I am soooo looking forwards to the next album.

    Oliver Hernandez

    it's awesome

  43. dคყЪнεя คuguรтσ

    Melhor banda de todos os tempos ! sem duvida !

    Ajay Joseph

  48. The Journeyman

    Josh gives a new and beutiful style to Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Tim Jacuzzi

    Sunscrave 28

    @jean carlos kkkkkkkkk obrigado cara falou por mim

  51. Luisa Ribeiro

    RHCP minha banda favorita! Conheci eles quando tinha só 8 anos com By the Way em 2003. Eles estarão pra sempre em meu coração! <3 E Josh, vai fundo! Você é um ótimo guitarrista! Dê na cara das pessoas que duvidaram da sua capacidade!

    Daniel SM

    +Luisa Ribeiro A banda que mais viajo quando ouço.. : 3 HUsasHUsHUshUsau.. Pessoal diz que o Josh n é tao bom quanto o Frunciante... mas o Josh ta na banda n faz mt tempo(n teve mts músicas ainda e tals) :v

    Larissa Miranda

    isso aii 💕

    Vitor Souza

    eu conheci eles na verdade com a musica the zephyr song em 2003. mas lembrava do clip calfornication de 2000 e depois q soibe q esse clip era do RHCP. Eles são epicos superaram os vicios em drpgas estão ai mais vivos do que nós.

    Guitar Soundgarden

    Luisa Ribeiro Eu tenho o símbolo da banda tatuado, amo demais essa banda, um amigo que morreu foi quem me mostrou o RHCP, então tem um grande significado pra mim <3

  52. Gianluca

    E depois falam que o Josh nao tem bom backing vocal

    dคყЪнεя คuguรтσ

    +Gianluca Campos fanboys do frusciente, acho ambos bem talentosos claro que se comparar com vendas o frusciente é superior, mas acho que cada um tem sua epoca e tempo na banda e acho incrivel o trabalho do josh

    Gianluca

    O josh deu uma cara nova pra banda. Pessoas inteligentes nao ficam comparando o que eh melhor e sim aproveitam o melhor dos dois mundos

    dคყЪнεя คuguรтσ

    Justamente... achei que só eu pensava assim ! e são diversas bandas que passam por isso e a galera insiste em criticar e comparar

    Wellyngton Fernandes

    Quando ouvi, pensei que era o Frusciante, e olha gostei do josh no backing. Os dois são muito bons, mas o estilo Frusciante pra mim pegou mais.

  57. JMKQUEPONS

    esta cancion no se por que me regresa 12 años atras con el by the way

  58. Jack Vanier

    does anyone know if it was John Frusciante who played on this album or was it Josh Klinghoffer

    Alexander

    @Rhys Duncan I thought it was around 2009?

    Rhys Duncan

    I'm not sure exactly, I just know that it was after stadium arcadium

    Tone willis

    +Jack Williams josh klinghoffer joined in 2009 then did iwy in 2011 and on and on to date, next album in a few months. no more fruciante since 2006

    Tone willis

    your correct....old news now

  62. psychedelicfunk

    whoever says this is mainstream, pop, or emotionless is so wrong i can't even begin to list everything that's amazing in this song. of course i'm biased because i love rhcp so much, but come on people. listen to the music. and don't compare it to other artists'.

    Giovanni Adrian

    Very well said! The chords aren't even close to mainstream! They're too soulful...

    Ryano

    I'm With You on that one...

    Oliver Hernandez

    +Primordial Entity I see what you did there

  63. robert madueno

    Over rated band theres better get outa mainstream music people.

    StoutlandJim

    who do you recommend that is better amongst the modern rock scene?

    RevolverOcelot

    We have a case of autism right here!

    Durtysoda

    You still don't give a clear reason -_- Anyway, just to clarify. I know that there are many more good band out there but you just can't say RHCP is overrated, at least with no reason and that's why (again) you are stupid. And I will not even answer you again because you aren't worth it or at least your argument. That is, of course if we even can call it "argument".

    martin vidovic

    but its not mainstream? they're just popular haha

    Sydney Stevens

    As we say in SA: "Jou ma se poes."

  64. andrew

    sounds like by the way era

    Jack Vanier

    i was trying to figure out what it was similar to but i couldnt figure it out but thats exactly it

    JMKQUEPONS

    Dosed, Midnight, warm tape, this song reminds me to that songs from BTW this song had the soul from their three

  65. Karina Gomes

    the best band ever <3 

    Rodrigo

    forever <3

    Majessty _

    Karina Gomes right? I always think that

  66. Robin Greenwood

    I just Love my Chili Peppers...every member of the band just flows together so beautifully! Always will be my #1 band of all time!

  67. Thestratblackman

    Andrew lyon most of the really awesome chili pepper song use those chords, like by the way, scar tissue, magpies on fire, soul to squeeze etc

  68. Thestratblackman

    I think the red hot chili peppers should make more songs with an f-c-d minor chord progression like scar tissue, soul to squeeze, by the way etc

  69. Mason Meredith

    Both the b-sides and the actual album are composed of really good songs they probably could of used these b-sides on the actual album and released a double album like Stadium Arcadium

    Robby Hodgey

    I'm with you my friend

    blachubear

    @Marcelo Corrales
     Co-signed. I always said whoever work for Warner Brothers Records need to do some explaining on why this wasn't a wide released. Mistakes like this makes me understand why the music business is slowly fading.

    Marcelo Corrales

    @blachubear totally agree, music busines it's just about the money, that is why the best songs are left out, they just want to sell the RHCP's cliche, and expeimental songs or "weird"songs are left out because of the lack of comercial potencial. the chili peppers should follow pearl jam example, and become an independent band, where they could only be their selfs, and give us the music that best reflect themselves when composing. I got poetic, sorry about that! haha

    SuperTeamramrod

    @blachubear no need to apologize for your poetry,  sadly it is the truth. this compilation was much better than I'm with you. my fear is that the chills will break up before we see another wide release of music that really reflects these guys. that my friend would be a travesty.

    EverWhat what?

    well the b-sides still exist. maybe its for the best that they stayed b-sides. who knows.

    you like the b-sides better? listen to them instead

  70. Fernanda Nara

    Perfeição *-*

  71. deathowner5

    It depends on taste really. I'm more of a melodic BTW fan, but you are probably a mother's milk type of guy am I right?

  72. Igor Vuchikj

    They always seems to surprise me out from nowhere with these B-sides... Masterpiece!

  73. Francisco Gil

    Backing vocals are just fucking amazing

  74. rod lerod

    It was recorded after I'm With You was done, so they had some more synergy at that point

  75. saenzfiction

    Does anyone else think this is an instant and underrated classic? it's just such a nice song! I enjoy listening to it with my wife when we go hiking.

  76. Tracer Bullet

    I always forget about the 'A' sides. They are pretty good but, these are just more creative and diverse and well, tasty.

  77. André Nascentes

    Bacon!

  78. Daniel Hernández

    i think both are pretty awesome

  79. sfz82

    anyone else prefers the B-sides over the actual album?

  80. Dylan Walker

    Fat guys on fire!

  81. Luis Pantoja

    mmmm...!!! Josh...!!! 0:35

  82. Los Rojos Chiles Pimientos

    El tercer b-side con Josh

  83. Gustavo Pfeifer

    The only thing I don't like in the B-Sides is the fact that there are like 2 guitar in every song so they will never do them live. (like a lot from By The Way or a few in Stadium Arcadium)

  84. Foffandie

    Fantastic stuff. Balanced, rich sound. Creative yet basic. Gonna listen to these while I'm falling asleep.

  85. Bruno Rita

    Beatiful song , Beatiful guitar , All is Beatiful ...

  86. Janusz Sochacki

    muzyka którą trzeba poznac dj.

  87. Felipe Canto

    Sounds Like Soul To Squeeze.... I don't Know Why, but my Heart Feels that

  88. Fgxg .ddrgxfg

    josh needs to be louder on the next album

  89. Bea JM

    and rhythm guitar and backup vocals when they were touring

  90. Joe Johnson

    Nice Song.

  91. Vesselina Agova

    *double thumbs up*

  92. FrikiRizado

    ¿¡¿¡¿It's only me or you all agree that B-SIDES ARE FUCKING AMAZING?!?!

  93. jason enzo

    plz rhcp make some good music again..

  94. Leshrac Banehallow

    agreed. :)

  95. LuckyNumberSevens77

    Who cares about "most people" Chili Peppers fans knew who Josh was before he took over and the band is still the best EVER!

  96. Quirke9

    He played keyboards as far as I know

  97. Payne Robertson

    What most people don't know as well is that Josh had played for them before, just not as an "official" band member
