"Goodbye Hollywood" as written by Christopher Cester and Nicholas John Cester....
I've been swallowed up, spat out and kicked around
You really know where you stand, when it all comes down
Tried to clean me up, while they cleaned me out
Tried to take what they can, but it all comes round

I never needed anyone until I crashed into the sun

So goodbye, Hollywood
It just don't fit me like it should
Now I found a place, to call my own

Life can build you up, just to knock you down
It takes a lot more than rent, yeah to paint this town

I never needed anyone until I crashed into the sun

So goodbye, Hollywood
It just don't fit me like it should
Now I found a place, to call my own, I'm comin' home
Goodbye, Hollywood
It just don't fit me like it should,
Now I've found a place to call my own.

I feel my time has come,
I'm not the only one.
Feel a time for a change,
In a world come undone.
You try to pull me in,
I will push you out.
Try to stop me now,
I can scream and shout

So goodbye, Hollywood, its sweet success don't taste that good,
Now I've found a place to call my own
Goodbye Hollywood,
Goodbye Hollywood,
Now I've found a place to call my own, I'm comin home.
So Goodbye Hollywood,
I just don't need you like they said I would.
Now I found a place, to call my own.
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home
I'm comin' home

    General Commenti heard an interview on the radio with chris, and he was talking about how this album (Shaka Rock) was really back to basics without spending big money for success eg. with Shine On when it turned out to be a flop.
    So im guessing Goodbye Hollywood is kind of a statement from Jet about how they're going back to the garage so to speak - "So Goodbye Hollywood,Your sweet success don't taste that good, Now I've found a place to call my own"
    However only 2 songs from the album were recorded in Australia so kinda makes me wonder what they're on about.

    General CommentWhoa what? Shine On was a flop? I'm hoping that you only mean it didn't sell well, in which case I don't know why it sold so little, as I loved Shine On as much as I loved Get Born. I'm liking this album as well so far. Looks like Jet is 3 for 3 in my book :D
