Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while your time away
And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth your night or your day
Who'll hear what I say?

Look around, you'd find the ground
Is not so far from where you are, but don't be too wise
For down below they never grow
They're always tired and charms are hired from out of their eyes
Never surprise

Take your time and you'll be fine
And say a prayer for people there who live on the floor
And if you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say it happened before

Don't be shy, you'll learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done if only you see
Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day in autumn for free
Yes, be what you'll be

Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while your time away
And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth your night or your day
Who'll hear what I say?

Open up the broken cup
Let goodly sin and sunshine in, yes, that's today
And open wide the hymns you hide
You find renown while people frown at things that you say
But say what you'll say

About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people 'round your head
Who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
Sends you out into the rain

Songwriters
ANTHONY KIEDIS, MICHAEL PAUL BALZARY, MICHAEL JAMES BEINHORN, HILLEL SLOVAK, JACK S IRONS
