Music Challenge #45: “Scar Tissue” by Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Firstly, a huge THANK YOU to mandibelle16 for hosting the Friday Music Challenge over the last 2 years. We have loved sharing her music with everyone on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and her contribution has helped inspire us to write many fabulous pieces.

We know we will still see her participating in our MLMM prompts, but for now, it’s time for someone else to take the reins. So, we are looking for a new Friday Music Challenge Host. (If you think this may be YOU please click HERE for more information).

In the meantime, I will endeavour to keep the prompt going. Please remember, the Music Challenge alternates with Dylan’s First Line Friday.

Cheers, Sarah (aka weejars)


For this week I’ve chosen the song “Scar Tissue” by a group who needs no introduction – Red Hot Chilli Peppers. What I enjoy about this song is the funky guitar and upbeat melody juxtaposed with a serious, and melancholy message.

Use “Scar Tissue” as an inspiration for any form of creative expression (including, but not limited to: short stories, poems, lyrics, artwork, and photography).

Alternatively, if you are a musician, use this as an opportunity to showcase your work.

If you need a helping hand to get started, here are a few questions to reflect on…

  • What do the band’s lyrcis inspire in you?
  • Do you feel comforted or hopeful?
  • Do you hate the song or like it?
  • What do you think the song’s message is?

Lyrics: “Scar Tissue” by Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
‘Cause with the birds I’ll share…

With the birds I’ll share this lonely view
With the birds I’ll share this lonely view

Push me up against the wall
Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra
Fallin’ all over myself
To lick your heart and taste your health
‘Cause with the birds I’ll share this lonely view…

With the birds I’ll share this lonely view
With the birds I’ll share this lonely view

Blood loss in a bathroom stall
A southern girl with a scarlet drawl
Wave good-bye to ma and pa
‘Cause with the birds I’ll share…

With the birds I’ll share this lonely view
With the birds I’ll share this lonely view

Soft spoken with a broken jaw
Step outside but not to brawl
Autumn’s sweet we call it fall
I’ll make it to the moon if I have to crawl
And with the birds I’ll share this lonely view…

With the birds I’ll share this lonely view
With the birds I’ll share this lonely view

Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
‘Cause with the birds I’ll share…

With the birds I’ll share this lonely view
With the birds I’ll share this lonely view…
