I always think of the song as a half-mocking, almost a little haunting description of main stream images that no one can achieve.It freaks me out, but it's so true, and I guess that's why. I dont think "Space is the final frontier, but its made in a holly wood basement" has as much to do with the landing hoax.First born unicorn refers to the beast-most notably the flood of filth issuing from california.Ironically the lyric plays like a hypnotic sbrill song about a materialistic world,good people can be changed or corrupted for the trappings of fame/cobain reference is to give us a picture of talent that could nt cope with such hollywood style celeb and became isolated tragicly like anyone could ..a tidal wave could clear one place but californication is everywhere......us all maybe.........space maybe the final frontier but made in a basement.....You shouldn't seperate these 2, -First born unicorn, hardcore soft porn- I think it means that if the first unicorn of the world will be born, it would almost be no big deal because Hollywood has already weakened our minds, back in time it would have been the biggest thing ever.(Hardcore first, soft porn later) Anybody agree's?Hey, Thanks to everybody that left his comment here. I need to do a presentation of this song with it meaning and everything for school, and i just wanted to thank all of you.
" is a reference to the cleft chin of strong male actors such as Kirk Douglas (Spartacus).The surgery reference, even the Alderon line which means they thought of a big Hollywood set instead are either making some cheap ass porn in a basement or sleeping with someone to get ahead and the "gettting to Alderan" or a roll like Princess Lea.The Cobain reference is a deeper take on making it and what it lead to...suicide.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.The only sentence i don't yet understand fully is ''first born unicorn'' Could use some help on that one.
