I like the way California smells before a natural disaster.
You can always tell you can always tell when the fire’s coming.
Prophets come down from the mountainside,
check their breath and start screaming
“better watch your back, ‘cause the fire’s coming”

Nothing burns like a palm tree in the night.
Nothing sells quite like sex by candlelight.
It’s entertainment in the parlance of our times.
We'll go float off into space,
laughing the night away.

I like the stories that talk about the west coast of Nevada.
I’m not sure what it takes to remove a state,
but I’ll do some research.
All of my friends know the end is near,
watch for a pale horse and rider,
riding on a cloud towards the business center.

Nothing burns like a palm tree in the night.
Nothing sells quite like sex by candlelight.
It’s entertainment in the parlance of our times.
We'll go float off into space,
laughing the night away.

We'll go float off into space,
laughing the night away.

We'll go float off into space,
laughing the night away.
