I need a name
A place in the game
A way to sustain
My stake in the frame
Then Hollywood
You come callin'

Oh, fickle fate
Will it happen too late?
With the morning sun
Will I be done, or in Hollywood?
And she starts bawlin'

I'm talkin' 'bout the weatherman
With his golden tan
Has a master plan
He's talkin' 'bout Hollywood
Hollywood promises

Now I live in the hills
On whiskey and pills
And inside my head
I vanquish the dead
And Hollywood
She's rewardin'

Well I'm riding the wave
Yes, and rock and roll saves
And right to the top
And down I'll drop
And Hollywood
You come crawlin'

Talkin' 'bout the actor man
Who needs a chance
But he's cleaning vans

I'm talkin' 'bout hooker bars
And the crazy cars
Searchin' for the stars

I'm talkin' 'bout Hollywood
Hollywood promises

Hollywood promises is it a dream?
Hollywood promises, another crazy
Hollywood promises is it a dream?
Hollywood promises, another crazy
Star star star
You're a star star star
You're a star star star
You're a star!

Am I inside a trap?
Just a star on the map?
Am I failin' in my dreams?
Torn apart at the seams
In Hollywood
And she's still callin'

Talkin' 'bout
The screamin' fans
Holdin' out their hands
It's all empty man

I'm talkin' 'bout the city fools
And the swimming pools
Get the crazy blues

I'm talkin' 'bout the studio head
Telling me I'm dead
Get out of Babylon, yeah
Talkin' 'bout Hollywood
Hollywood promises
