Blue skies / Brown horizons
If this is the city of angels / Then why have we chosen to settle in hell
Another shooting and a four-alarm fire
Porcelain diet to a body that's good enough to sell

All the swimming pools and movie stars
Couldn't lure me away from where you are
Driving limousines to the movie screens
Airbrushed hopefuls posing for magazines, underneath

Blue skies / Brown horizons
If this is the city of angels / Then why have we chosen to settle in hell
Any day it could explode into riots
Sending a shockwave from South Central to Mississauga

All those swimming pools and movie stars
Will dry up with the valley aqueduct
Driving limousines leaking gasoline
Airbrushed hopefuls shooting pornography, underneath

Buildings racing toward the city lines
Acid raining downward from the skies

LAX invites another flight
Actors, immigrants, and business types
Lusting for a piece of coastal life
California cornflake paradise

You talk, you talk, climb to the top with lies, all lies
The hills alight, a fire fight, you run for your life

Skyline fires turn the night to day
We can't make you leave but you can't stay

Handbag Shih Tzus cruise Rodeo Drive
Horowitz can't hear the farmer's cries
Acid's raining downward from the sky
Buildings race toward the city lines

Buildings racing past the
Buildings sprawling past the
Buildings creeping toward the

Blue skies / Brown horizons
