Hollywood never looked so great
but I will be leaving before you start sleeping

Now that my face is frozen with expressions I've chosen
and I'm nowhere close to my own city
but it was all night at parties and now we are starving
but I'm still nowhere the city

So I try to keep sane but this goddamn place is a freeway
I will not make it to see your face

Too much shit at your workplace so you start to vacate
to a place near the city
where you make up your problems and tell me to solve them
but I spent my time sleeping

What is your point, lover?
let's see what we can uncover
it seems to me that when I quit it all just ended
simply put, you were quite offended

I try to keep sane but this goddamn place is a freeway
and I will not make it to see your face
cause whatever happens, it's supposed to
and whatever happened, there's nothing I could do

    General CommentHollywood never looked so great,
    but I will be leaving before you start sleeping.
    Now that my face is frozen with expressions I've chosen
    and I'm nowhere close to my own city.
    But it was all night at parties and now we are starving
    but I'm still nowhere near the city.
    So, I try to keep sane, but this goddamn place is a freeway.
    And I will not make it to see your face.

    Too much shit at your work place,
    so you start to vacate to a place near the city
    where you make up your problems
    and tell me to solve them,
    but I spent my time sleeping, yeah.

    What is your point, lover?
    Let's see what we can uncover.
    It seems to me that when I quit, it all just ended.
    Simply put, you were quite offended.

    I try to keep sane, but this goddamn place is a freeway.
    And I will not make it to see your face,
    'Cause whatever happens, it's supposed to be.
    Whatever happened, there's nothing I could do.

    General CommentLyrics from the official A Goodbye & Farewell tour poster (with all Assailant EP lyrics):

    Hollywood never looked so great,
    but I will be leaving
    before you start sleeping.

    Now that my face is frozen with expressions I've chosen,
    and I'm no where close to my own city.
    But it was all night at parties, and now we are starving.
    But I'm still no where near the city.

    So I try to keep sane but this god damn place is a freeway.
    I will not make it to see your face.

    Too much shit at your workplace,
    so you start to vacate to a place near the city.
    Where you make up your problems and tell me to solve them.
    I spent my time sleeping.

    What is your point lover, let's see what we can uncover.

    It seems to me that when I quit it all just ended.
    Simply put you were quite offended.

    I try to keep sane but this god damn place is a freeway.
    I will not make it to see your face.

    Because what ever happens - it is supposed to.
    What ever happened there's nothing I could do.
