I don't want to say much about this, but I think you're looking at the references in 'Californication' from the wrong angle. Alderaan's a planet that exists only in (at the time the song was written) one movie and was created by some fairly cheap and simple special effects (i.e. 'in a Hollywood basement); it only existed in that movie to be destroyed. I think that gives you all you need to know. Most of the other things you've brought up are as simple. The Chili Peppers are not particularly intelligent writers and there's not much that can be gotten out of putting some weight on their lyrics.

I don't write poetry or lyrics.
