Ethiopia Lyrics

Play "Ethiopia"
on Amazon Music

[Flea:]
"We're rolling everybody. it starts with bass."

E I o I e I a
When you give your love away,
You get a feeling for...
E I o I e I a
Live to love another day,
Even when you feel unsure.
More and more I wanna raise!
Raise my bar...

    This seems like someone is going through a depression, and you are trying to send them your love. It also sort of seems like someone is about to commit suicide, and they are telling someone to let their son know that they love them before they go. Also it is about Flea getting lost on tour in Ethiopia.

    I think this song is written to Flea, because he did this trip to Ethiopia with his friend Damon Albarn to discover the folklore of the music in that country.

    I think this song is about giving your love to children in the form of teaching about things.
    He seems to be missing spending time with and wants to make quality time even better to make up for going away on the trip to Ethiopia.
    He is encouraging experiences and opening doors to new opportunities around him to experience more of life.

    This is pretty straightforward, it's about anthony kiedis on his trip to Africa, thinking about this son
