in california folks spread as thin as it ever gets

but in missouri you're just stuck with it

you better love every fuckin bit

i know your face, i know your name

don't you ever claim to know more of the same

don't you ever claim to know more of the same



this country's built of prison wall, cinder blocks stacked on sacred falls, interstate webs and shopping malls

we'd like to think we got a bird's eye view

freedom to see the tride and true

freedom to be so far from it too



yeah here we are trying to break it down

here we are so far from the ground

dropping names like they be freedom bound



but i need this place and all it's got

besides a sea of have and have-nots

and summers that barely get hot

yeah i need this place and how it makes me grow

i need to know i'm not alone

california show me i'm not alone

california show me i'm not alone
