California

California

Opened up my eyes so wide

California

A fear and loathing kind of stride

What a ride

While I write

 

I feel this pain inside that makes me want to hide

'Cause all I see is structure in this made up life

So fit inside my shoes and tell me where to go

It is the ocean, the desert or the snowy slopes

I try and sleep while higher than a steady flight

Is this the land of promise or the biggest lie

 

California

Take me back to that menace life

California

Give me back my Venice pride

What a ride

While I write

 

I've been so destructive

Been the cause of all my grief

Had a martyr complex, indescribable

I cured all my problems

With the smoke and all the coke

But dug a hole so deep; No one could see me weep

 

California love is so subliminal

California love is such a criminal

California love is so incredible

California love is indestructible

 

California

Opened up Pandora's box

California

Pierced my life sharp as a knife
