I'm in the mountains
They're so beautiful and crystal clear
They scrape the clouds with their top
(And fuck California)

And the air's so clear
I drink it in it makes me drunk
I fall down and fall asleep
(And fuck San Francisco)

I dream of some little evil land
With twisted little cragily experiences
Down below the Oregon Border
(And fuck San Bernardino)

I'm there in my dreams
I'm there in my nightmares
And I got to sing about it all day long
(And fuck weed)

You've been naked in the sunshine
You've been buried in the sand
You've been living on the fault line
In a chemical plant

I've been pounding up and down I-5
Highway One is such a blast
If only I could erase L.A.
The trip wouldn't end so fast

This city is so beautiful
The clouds come out in the fall
And I love to see them back
(And fuck California)

Even on a cloudy day
The sun pokes out through at the end of the day
To make a little sunset experience even though you're depressed
(And fuck Santa Cruz)

Ohh I'm in Central Oregon now
Driving my little tin blue can
And I hear green onions song
(And fuck Yreka)

Green onions on the little stereo
And I feel like I'm going the right way
Northway North, North, North, North, North!

Yeah keep goin' north boys!
all right!
Yahoo!

Sonic cookie on the outside
Pure frosting all alone
You've been fucking Winona Ryder
And she got crabs on your bone

The only good thing about California
Is the band that I saw
They held there breath to shout out Supernova
They were playing in a shopping mall

    General CommentI don't think the meant that San Bernadino was near Oregon, It sounds more to me like they are travelling back home.
    And I doubt they REALLY have anything against Cali, but they're a Seattle based band, and they were probably home sick!
    Seattle rules :D

    General CommentYreka is the last real major town on I5 before you leave the state of California heading North. Pronounced why-REE-kah. Pretty sure that's the missing lyric thats in all the versions of this song I see posted.

    Also, pretty sure they were singing about Highway 1, not "highways wander".

    And some interesting trivia: Weed, California is an actual town that was founded by a lumberjack named Abner Weed. At some time it was the largest sawmill in the world.

    General CommentHmm... I live in San Bernadino County, the largest county in America (not counting Alaska), and it is nowhere near the Oregan border. That stanza is quite random. I wouldn't say its an "evil land" but does have high crime rates nowadays, but not back in the 90s. And California SUCKS!
