"In Reverse (Terrified)" as written by and Peter F Stuart....
Woke up crying in the middle of the desert
We were headed for a good time
With mediocre weather
And everything changes
When you least expect it
When you least expect it
Well you'd better not be waiting for it

To get better 'cause it gets worse
Unless you're willing to jump
And throw the whole damn thing
In reverse, alright
'Cause you can't leave California
Out of your mind
I'm terrified, it's alright
You know it happens sometimes
In the middle of the night

Well I headed west
To go out where they make the dreams up, and I
Got some rest and in my sleep
They put these screens and I'm feelin'
Empty spaces, with their empty words
And the empty people feeling better
About their empty lives
They don't feel better,
They just feel worse

'Cause no one's willing to jump
And throw the whole damn thing
In reverse, alright
And you can't leave California
Out of your mind
I'm terrified, it's alright
It happens sometimes
In the middle of the night
I'm terrified, it's okay
You know it happens to everybody,
Every day
I'm terrified
And I can't leave California
Out of my mind

But it might be a good time
To get a little desert skin
To get a little sin,
Get a little salvation
Get a little lost,
Get a little lost

Temptation is the mother of reinvention
As you find yourself saying things
You wouldn't dare to mention
If you bothered listening,
But you shut your ears
And you stop watching 'fore
The whole thing ends in tears
And you're getting better,
But you feel worse

And now you're willing to jump
And throw the whole fuckin' thing
In reverse, alright
And you can't leave California
Out of your mind
I'm terrified, it's alright
It happens sometimes
In the middle of your life
I'm terrified, it's okay
You know it happens to everybody,
Every day
I'm terrified
And I can't leave California
Out of my mind

I can't leave California
Out of my mind
I can't leave California 'till
I'm out of my mind
Well I can't leave California
But it might be a good time
Can't leave California, but I...
