Behind the Sun is the sixth track from the band's third studio album, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan. The band wanted the song to be a single, however the record label insisted on not releasing it. Eventually, it ended up being released as a single in 1992 to promote the compilation album What Hits!?, and a music video was made using animated footage mixed with portions of the "Higher Ground" music video; due to this, John Frusciante and Chad Smith appear in the video instead of Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons. The song was never played live, however, the band once did a lip-synched version in 1987 for a TV show and it has been teased several times in the One Hot Minute Tour and once in the I'm With You Tour on September 10, 2012 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

LyricsEdit

One day while bathing in the sea
My talking dolphin spoke to me
He spoke to me in symphony
From freedom's peace beneath the sea
He looked to me eyes full of love
Said yes we live behind the sun

Behind the sun
Behind the sun
Behind the sun

The sun goes up
And the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun
My heart continues to pound

Behind the sun

Now while I shower in the rain
I watch my dolphin swim away
The one who listens to the surf
Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
And like my dolphin swims so free
The sun does swim into the sea

Behind the sun
Behind the sun
Behind the sun
Behind the sun

An island flying through the sky
One day your son might ask you why
And if your son should be a girl
She too might ask you of this world
The sun shines sweet upon your beach
And yes my dolphin loves to teach

Behind the sun
Behind the sun
Behind the sun

The sun goes up
And the sun gets down
But like the heart of the sun
My heart continues to pound

Behind the sun
