Soul to Squeeze is a song originally recorded during the sessions for the band's fifth studio album Blood Sugar Sex Magik. It was released as a b-side to two singles from the album and then it went on to become a proper single in 1993 to promote the Coneheads movie OST. It became one of the band's most known songs and ended up appearing in their Greatest Hits compilation in 2003.

John Frusciante does not appear on the music video despite having written and played guitar on the song as he had already left the band when the song was released as a single.

LyricsEdit

I've got a bad disease
But from my brain is where I bleed
Insanity it seems
Has got me by my soul to squeeze

Well all the love from thee
With all the dying trees I scream
The angels in my dreams, yeah
Have turned to demons of greed that's mean

Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time

Today love smiled on me.
It took away my pain say please
All that you had to free
You gotta let it be, oh yeah

Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time

Oh, so polite indeed
Well I got everything I need
Oh make my days a breeze
And take away my self destruction

It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet
I'm on a rollercoaster,
but I'm on my feet
Take me to the river,
Let me on your shore
I'll be coming back baby,
I'll be coming back for more

Doo doo doo doo dingle zing a dong bone
Ba-di ba-da ba-zumba crunga cong gone bad

I could not forget
But I will not endeavor
Simple pleasures aren't as special
But I won't regret it never

Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time

Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico
When I find my piece of mind
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time
