Hollywood Mecca of the Movies Lyrics

by T Bone Burnett

Hollywood Mecca of the Movies

Who are you and why are you speaking aloud?
In this joint there are no cameramen allowed
He is a personality not a person
Crime Being Crime Wave The Scanner
What A Town What A Great Town

We didn't build this place to last forever
Sodium Penathol Pseudologica Fantastica
Honesty is the most subversive of all disguises
I said goodbye a long time ago
You must not have heard me

Measurement and signature
How to throw your voice
Dead Pan Alley
Extreme Consciousness
Power/Violence
Social Engineering
Someone stole my identity
And I feel sorry for him

It's a mortal cinch
No resilience
We didn't build this place to last forever
What A Town What A Great Town
