Los Angeles take your dreams away
Burnin' on the ground
At the end of the day it's your life, your loss
If you can't turn the clock around

I said, Oh, my God, you can have her for that one
So you better not miss a shot
You're letting yourself get into all kinds of danger
Soon enough, you're gonna get caught

They had a feeling
It was like you had to prove you're one in a million
And on top of that junk he's been dealing
This time the drugs are you and they'll come through
It ain't gonna stop 'til they get what they want

And I say, Nobody knows me, I'm all alone
I say, I, I gotta go
It's a Hollywood bus stop and the party's over
I, I gotta go

John was havin' his homeboy down, so he waited for a ride
Then waited to confide in Hollywood's concert backslide
With affordable lives and a sunroof, nestled among the filth
Frequencies and bad intentions, gotta take it for what it's worth

And I say, They had a feeling
It was like you had to prove you're one in a million
And on top of that junk he's been dealing
This time the drugs are you and they'll come through
It ain't gonna stop 'til they get what they want

And I say, Nobody knows me, I'm all alone
I say, I, I gotta go
It's a Hollywood bus stop and the party's over
I, I gotta go

Have you ever been haunted by your past?
And it will never let you go
Well, never ever, ever let you go
No, I said, they'll never ever, ever let you go

Nobody knows me, I'm all alone
I say, I, I gotta go
It's a Hollywood bus stop and the party's over
I, I gotta go

I say, I, I gotta go
I, I gotta go
I, I gotta go
I said, Yeah
