Stadium Arcadium Lyrics

Play "Stadium Arcadium"
on Amazon Music

Bells around St. Petersburg
When I saw you

I hope I get what you deserve
And this is where I find

Smoke surrounds your perfect face
And I'm falling

Pushin a broom out into space
And this is where I find a way

The stadium...

    Here's my meaning for the chorus...

    The song is about being at peace. He's sitting by a lake surrounded by a beautiful forest and watching the reflection of the moon on the water. He's feeling a connection to nature and his soul. He feels a sense of renewal which will last until the end of his days.

    Things that he thought were right, are now wrong, like he was asleep in a dream and awoke after noon. That connection continues, and he's now so strong and confident that he asks God for the purpose of life.

    Dustin Jacobs

    I have never been able to decipher the meaning of the lyrics, but, everytime i listen to it i get the feeling that the meaning is out there somewhere and one day when im not expecting it i will find out what the stadium arcadium is. So until i discover it, i plan to keep searching for the Stadium Arcadium

    i think that this song means that out there, there is a metaphorically speaking stadium arcadium where everyone is reunited and joined as one. it is a mirror to the moon=the beauty. I love this song!

    It's quite clear that the meaning behind stadium is one oF many views, be it that of the mother of Anthoy's child, or the sensation one gets when a group of people are brought together to make beautiful music. The underlying message, however, pervades to the idea that no matter the occasion, one can always find joy and comfort in finding their own personal "stadium arcadium"

    i think it's about when rhcp play their playing to the whole universe and it's about romantic love 'mirror to the moon'. Also it's about performing in a stadium and its like 'i hope you get wot you deserve' or something. I think that's to their fans.

    The song is about people coming together and making music, and this reflects their own experience of the power of music to bring people together. It summarizes the whole album (hence the album title) and Anthony Kiedis has said "this is the cup of love - not just love for the individual but for the act of reflecting the light from the heavens, back to the world."

    I heard Anthony said it was about a group of people coming together and making beautiful music. He did say "this is the cup of love - not just love for the individual but for the act of reflecting the light from the heavens, back to the world."

    Flea has said it is the summary of the whole album and the band agreed it reflects their own experience of the power of music to bring people together.

    This has got to be one of my favorite rhcp songs of all time. Its very melodic at the same time, very rock. To me, this songs is about a guy, thinking about a girl and when he thinks about he, he feels like he's in his own world.
