"Hollywood" as written by and Shaant Timothy/czum Hacikyan....
The way we're living makes no sense
Take me back to the age of innocence
I wanna go back then
Take me back to the age of innocence
Back to the age of innocence

When clockwork fixed by lights and books
When singers wrote songs instead of hooks
When the value wasn't in the price
When the fight for life was in the civil rights

When we couldn't live life through a screen
When everything you knew was as good as it seems
When the only worry was the concept of sin
When did it begin?

[Chorus: ]
I wonder if I could,
Go back to old Hollywood
When presidents dropped blonde bombshells
Instead of creating the perfect hell
The way we're living makes no sense
Take me back to the age of innocence
I wanna go back then
Take me back to the age of innocence
Back to the age of innocence

When pharmaceuticals were there to make life beautiful
When the way that we were born was more than suitable
When everybody thought they could make a difference
And you couldn't get your pics within an instant

[Chorus: ]

I wanna get older, don't fight my age
Take me back to those simpler days
I wonder how it all happened
I wanna get older, don't fight my age
Don't wanna be the shade of a scalpel's blade
So please tell me, please tell me
What ever happened? Happened?

[Chorus: ]

I wanna get older, don't fight my age
Take me back to those simpler days
I wonder how it all happened
I wanna get older, don't fight my age
Don't wanna be the page on the scalpel's blade
So please tell me, please tell me
What ever happened?
Happened?

    General CommentIt's

    When fights were fixed by lies in books

    and

    I wonder if I could
    Go back to old Hollywood
    When presidents dropped blonde bombshells
    Instead of creating the perfect hell

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it says:

    When everybody thought they could make a difference
    And you couldn't get your pics within an instance

    and it should be "when everybody thought they could make a difference and you couldn't get your FIX within an instant."

    like fix as in drugs, etc?

    General Commentthis is one of my favorites off of Rotation.
    To me, i feel like it is talking about the curroption of the media today. The whole "When singers wrote songs instead of hooks" reminds me of hannah montanna and the jonas brothers who are "muscians" who are too busy being in the press than creating quality music. this song is pure genious though. :]

    General CommentFavorite part of the song is the end, when he sings "the way were living... take me back to the age of innocence." I love the way his voice changes. I think cause it reminds me of alex gaskarth though. Hahah.
