"This Is L.A." as written by and Kim Bendix Petersen....
I'm back in the church... night has taken over
I'm breathing hard... in the dark
Through the hole in the floor, I hear the winds from the catacomb
Here it comes, out of the hole, a magnificent light

Blinding the entire church
Contorted faces and bodies too, powerful entity floating high above
I was no more scared of dying, but I was terrified of knowing the truth
I don't want to, but I have to... I have to know who you are

"You have entered where no human must go
You have seen the lie... the lie about the cross"
I am many... We are One, THE HIGHEST
You'll never know why We kept Him here

The one who did not die on the cross
Could it be We kept Him away from God... so that he may never walk
Never walk the Earth again?"
"Or could it be that We've kept Him... safe from YOU

So you may never try to do again what... you did back then?
I guess it all depends on who you are
I guess it all depends on who you really are"
"God and Satan are just puppets on OUR strings

Creating conflicts in your little human minds, keeping US alive
It doesn't matter who or what you think We are
It only matters that you know We are
God, The Devil, good and evil, We're all that and so much more"

"Live this life the best you can, and leave the rest to US"
But I can't... I won't be one that feeds an unknown God
Show to mankind that You really exist
And then explain to us the meaning of chaos

Give us reason to persist, to go on living through this Hell on Earth
All I want is peace of mind from all you non existing Gods
I bet that not even You will ever understand the truth
Cause YOU are nothing but a puppet on even higher strings

Your unholy eyes, I want to sew them shut
Oh you meaningless little God, and so I choose death over you
Up up the grey cold stairs, up into the tower of Hell
With a rope in my hand, I'm searching for the unknown land

FATHER OF THE UNIVERSE, here I come.. THIS PLACE IS TERRIBLE

    Song MeaningI think what Marina is trying to say that everyone in the 'celebrity world' or anyone who wants to get into that world have to be one way and follow that way to stay on top.

    "White white teeth, dark dark skin
    Long blond hair, Botox grin
    This is what you need to be
    'Cause this what is real beauty"

    I think there is a deeper meaning to these lyrics then explaining how you have to look. Although the look is fake she could be talking about your personality. Covering yourself with fakeness to fit in. Never being yourself because if you are you'll never fit in.

    "Oh life's a cat walk, life is tough"

    Every single second of your life is a show. You have to look your best and never letting yourself go (hey that rhymed lol).

    "Why don't you try to shout out loud
    That personal faults are quite allowed
    It's pudding proof that we are real
    And she's a hamster on their wheel"

    If we all know that none of us can be perfect, why don't we tell the world? Instead of pretending that we are all robot's and we are all perfect and we have to all think and act the same.
    As for the hamster bit I think it's about this celebrity trying to keep up with fashion and the industry.

    I also think this song could also be talking about society in general. How we are trying to keep up with fashion and look our best and how we put on a show for people but that's not who we are really.

    I think this is an awesome song by Marina and I think the lyrics and amazing and really true.
