Heather's gone
She left a note
"He is Legend" was all she wrote
Go fetch the detective
I think I've found something
This isn't Heater's handwriting (that's right, I said it)

Don't you talk to strangers?
You know it leads to danger
"I'm gonna be a big star some day

The kidnapper is at the comfort Inn
We'll find your daughter and we'll get revenge
Record me / red carpet (burns)

The reason the handsome one knocks on your door
It's the candy, the paper, the blood on the floor
It's the "diamonds and the pills"
Leave my daughter alone!
It's the glamour that kills
"Dad, I'm not coming home"

I AM HOLLYWOOD
Watch where you point your finger
I am Hollywood
You better remember
I am Hollywood

    General CommentUr sure Pixdogg? I'm pretty sure it's a metaphor. The song's about a kidnapping. Hollywood is a kidnapper. The song's about how hollywood kidnaps, in a sense, people and changes them and distorts them and makes them very fake and plastic, just like everyone else in hollywood. In the end, the kid who was kidnapped doesn't want to go home, just like when people go to hollywood, they don't ever want to leave, they're just stuck in their superficial little Hollywood world.

    General CommentMarilyn Monroe said "Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul." It's true, things that are of real worth are lost in all the 'glamour'.

    General Commentdefinitely a satire on hollywood and how superficial it is. hollywood is characterized as the evil that pollutes america. notice the change in vocals when it cuts to " i...am.... HOLLYWOOD"

    the band even said that this is something that's been in their hearts for a while.

    General Commenthey yea i agree with you DemonHunter! plus the "dad i'm not coming home" makes more sense with the fact that you said that when people goes to hollywood they just want to stay there

    General CommentThis song definitely seems to say how Hollywood can change someone. If you pay attention to the vocals it kinda sounds like at the end that he is going crazy.
    The whole song is a metaphor. About how manipulative the drugs, sex, rocknroll, and most of all FASHION of Holywood is.
