[Note: words in () are sung by Billy]

You and me we should get out of this town tonight
Cause everywhere I put my foot down
It's just another concrete block waiting for me

And it's a...
(dark cold night now)
And it's a...
(dark cold night)

My spirit is freezing to ice in this heat

Could you turn around and say
Hooray, it's a beautiful day L.A.
(yeah come on)
But now it's time
To pack your bags and go
Hooray it's a beautiful day L.A.
But I think I'll be gone today

I've been traveling at the speed of gasoline
And stopped by the color of electricity
We've been trying for too long
To cover up his fingerprints
From a distant past

And it's a...
(dark cold night now)
And it's a...
(dark cold night)

My spirit is freezing to ice in this heat

Could you turn around and say
Hooray, it's a beautiful day L.A.
(yeah come on)
But now it's time
To pack your bags and go
Hooray it's a beautiful day L.A.
But I think I'll be gone today

And it's a...
(damned cold night now)
And it's a...
(damned cold night now)
My spirit is freezing to ice in this heat

Could you turn around and say
Hooray, it's a beautiful day L.A.
(yeah come on)
But now it's time
To pack your bags and go
Hooray it's a beautiful day L.A.
But I think I'll be gone today

    General CommentOK this might sound messed up, but I think that he's talking about the glamour hollywood and how people forget their pasts and who they really are and he is realizing that "everywhere I put my foot down it's another concrete block waiting for me" and how people are so self important like that they think that the ground is walking on them instead of the other way around....just a guess

    Blindside is from Sweden, so it's likely they are using it in its true context, or something like that. I don't know for sure.

    General Commentfrom what I have heard it suposed to be about Christin (the vacalist) being seperated from God. Therefore the wored damned meaning his puinshment; or seperation from God.

    General CommentI definitely think Marky_Markstyle has got the right idea.

    The theme of this song is nicely encapsulated in the Hollywood, Los Angeles Walk of Fame. Here (as most of you will know) celebrities receive their true canonization--when their name is scratched into a new star on the sidewalk.

    This concept reeks of self-sufficient bunk. The lyricist wants nothing to do with "another concrete block waiting for me". He's rejecting that: not so much the city itself, but the entire Godless-mindless attitude it represents in this song.

    It does not surprise me at all that he uses the word "damned" here. He's not doing it to get an offended reaction. He just gets his point across.
