Like sand, just take your dreams away
Running 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 what I got you can have _
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
Was like you had to prove you're one in a million
And I'm talking bout junkies 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
Ah yayayayay I gotta go
It's a Hollywood bus stop and the party's over
Ah yayayayay I gotta go


John _ his homeboy down so he waited for a ride
Then waited to come by at the Hollywood's concert backslide
With affordable odds and a sunroof, nestled among the filth
Frequencies and bad intentions, gotta take it for what it's worth


Have you ever been hunted
By your past
And it will never let you go
Well never never let you go
No! I said well never never let you go
And I say


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

    General CommentThe lyrics here are totally wrong.
    It's about time that two guys in Hollywood (Jon ?? and his homeboy Dante) helped out a guy who was drinking because a girl he likes was the same as drugs/alcohol to him. Calling himself a junkie for her.

    Los Angeles take your dreams away is the first line
    The second chorus says "John (last name) and his homeboy Dante, waiting for a ride-these guys sat with him until his ride pick him up
    ????, Hollywood, Compton, Backslide
    With affordable lodging in the sub-room,
    nestled among the filth-a small dirty one room apartment in a shady section of Hollywood
