The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie Lyrics

Lip stick junkie
Debunked the only one
She came back wearing a smile
Look-a-like someone drug me
They wanted to unplug me
No one here is on trial
It's just a turnaround
And we go, oh
Well and we go uh huh oh

Tick tock I want to rock...

    Its about cloning and the replacment of celebrities "lickstick junkie " is referring to tila tequila and "raindance maggie" is the cloning machine and the song is aimed towards tila tequila because they cloned her and they let her go thinking she was the clone thats why he says "raindance maggie advances to the finals who knew that she had the goods " meaning they didnt know they could make a clone that was so close to the orignal person and then "we got the wrong girl but not for long girl its in a song girl and I'd be gone girl bye bye bye head ..bye bye girl" he is telling her that they are coming to get her

    I believe the first verse is about when he was younger, his father "Blackie" started acting. "Blackie" was a method actor therefore to get into character, he would transform into that character by wearing their clothes, using their voice, taking on their personality and so forth. One day "Blackie" became a transvestite, and stayed in that character for days, almost weeks! "Lipstick junkie, be funky all he want, she came back wearing a smile" is referring to how his father took on so many personas with makeup (lipstick junkie) and how he would wear whatever the role required (be funky all he want). And also about how "Blackie" came home one day dressed as a woman (she came back wearing a smile). Then talks about how he wouldn't just try out these characters, he would become these people, "Blackie" would disappear and his new persona would now be in his place (no one here is on trial, it's just a turn around).

    Main tram : about making 2 girls wet and them showing how to (and getting more fans for Kiedis' old pen; listen to the scat at the end (first syllables of word you mean) I got ta zing my pen on you bla bel bou...d bou d bou d bou what's not...)

    Main parralel tram : about finding someone stupid enough to drop an a.bomb supposed to fall sometime... (see Monarchy of Roses video clip) and being told by his general how to make a loud boom and fuck this rowdy crowd up, coupled with critism adressed to some "innocent" dark side Maggie baby. The lyrics were obviously constructed for this tram to be easier to read than other potential parralel ones...

    Also, the
    "The arrival of recent members"
    "The adventures of raindance maggie" tram :
    younger members and there mastery of harmonic enhancement... when someone can make timber fluctuations beat-matched, he has to know where those loud harmonic points are on a guitar...

    Crack heroin combo in a ritualistic use with prostitutes.
    The ritual involves the purchase of the drug(s) and the hiring of prostitut(es) who hold and dispense the drug in small amounts after the junkie john performs some act(s) the prostitute makes him do.
    There is a whole S&M thing going on. The "John " keeps or hires again the prostitute that makes the experience thrilling.

    Making it rain refers to the showers of dollar bills that are thrown at the prostitute.

    Its about a girl who blew his cover (debunked), on the fact that he wanted to sleep with her but wouldn't let onto the fact.

    She played the game with her twin and called his bluff with the "stand in" to get the job done!

    "It's just a collection of memories and people along the way that had maybe left my consciousness until I heard that music, and then they kind of came dancing back into my consciousness, and out the old pen onto the paper. "Names have been changed to protect the innocent. Although there is a Maggie, I realized later. There's two Maggies, actually."-Anthony Kiedis
