"Cancer California" as written by Jack Tankersley, Brent Michael Clawson and Skye Jayne....
Live your life
Die a little everyday
Pretend you've got something to say
Nobody here is listening

Your cancer California

Pack your things to find your 15 minute fame
I hear it happens everyday
In the obituary
Simple dream to a hooker on the street
Kept alive by her apathy
Started with good intentions

Your cancer California
Burn up, burn out, burn away

You burn away, you burn away, you burn away

Live your life
Die a little everyday
I thought you had something to say
Your cancer California
Trust me darling, my next victim
Don't believe in me
I'm your savior and destruction
I'll take everything

    I think it's more about the people who come to California looking to be famous. They come here all bright and cheery and thinking they will become famous and everything will be perfect but then something happens and they end up selling themselves and selling out just to get what they think they want even though they never get it because everyone in CA is here to do the same thing and no one gives a shit about what they have to say. It's like a cancer that attacks them (great analogy btw) and brings them down into the gutter and breaks them into nothing.
