This song is a call for an eye opening, with references to the filmed 1st moon landing @ Universal Studios by Stanley Kubrick. You wouldn't want to know but Corey Feldman talks about it. Do a little research even if @ 1st it seems far fetched. He hated mainstream concepts, which is what this song is basically about.
Also referencing the elite who would definitely have reason to "praise control of population". Movies & tv shows are written to reveal things to us all the time. Then when it said "spheres" it could mean a variety of things.
The obvious point is that the peppers consider "Station to station" to be one of the most important works in popular music....which of course it is. The Dorothy Stratten suggestion makes a lot of sense, but the reference to unicorn may also be dealing with this piece of the lifestyle community. I just want to add my little "something" to the discussion!
This cleft chin could be compared to a war trench, hence the "is that war you're waging? It seems like this is criticizing (making fun of) people going too far with surgery and ending up with enormous cleft chins that don't even look natural anymore, but more like a huge chasm on their jaw line!!
Oh well I might be wrong, but that's my take on this line =)I wonder how many people in Cali listened to this song, looked at themselves and said, "Wow.
Those mysterious sightings were sometimes called "balls of fire". Going back to the term foo fighter, well there is a band called the Foo Fighters that is post-grunge and Dave Grohl is the singer of the group.
Dave Grohl was apart of Nirvana (which Kurt was also in) So I believe that if you translated this verse, the real meaning is: "And Cobain can you hear the Foo Fighters singing their new music ." Or its something close to that.
