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
