"Hollywood" as written by Joseph Anthony Fiddler and Y ....
All american boy with big dreams of glamour life bright lights and boogie nights the hype "everything could be yours if the price is right" grab your nothing and hold it tight the first chance you get you're heading out to the west this decision is one you won't regret move to the place where everybody knows ya like Hollywood, Los Angeles, California

Chorus
So you wannna be a superstar welcome to Hollywood quick money, fly women, fast cars welcome to Hollywood so you wannna be a superstar welcome to Hollywood high times, big dreams, living large welcome to Hollywood

One way ticket then you'll live this life of a superstar caught up in this business God as my witness you will never change only been here a day already in the game you changed your name you don't even look the same now your on top of the world money, power and fame picture perfect just like you planned no longer him 'cause you the man

[Chorus]
(Break)Welcome to Hollywood
You'll never get the best of me

The time ticks away you've had your play sold your soul for the roll now you gots to pay forfeit integrity, overnight celebrity settle for selfish gain rather than dignity another sucka why did you trust a player like me fool eternal hustler I'm taking everything and now you know I hate to tell you but I told you so

[Chorus]
High times big dreams there you are a victim of Hollywood

    General CommentOK, I'm not sure what Kdog is talking about, but
    I think it's saying don't worship anything other than God (e.g. money, sex, fame...).

    General Commenti like my idea, its easier for me to get, if you convert or whatever come back to the faith you will get rewards, they just use sex cuz it relates to todays culture but you dont really get sex

    General Commentok, i agree with both of you, ardent and kdog, i think it means that you can get caught up in all these things like money sex and fame because you think it'll make you seem cool or whatever, but you just dont need any of it to be cool in Gods eyes so you shouldnt be doing it.

    General CommentSub-consciencly the music and effects convey moods that just reading the lyrics don't. If you listen to the song you hear the music that is supposed to sound evil and deceitful (the long off-key pick scrapes on the guitar during the chorus, the phased wispering in the bridge, the female voice in the background wispering "I told you so" and laughing)
    Also, look at verse 3. *Another sucka, why did you trust a playa like me fool. Eternal hustler* Well that right there tells you that its meant to be Satan talking.
    I basicly think the whole song is sarcastic of Hollywood and the lifestyle that is assosiated with it, for instance:
    *No longer Him, 'cause you the man*

    General CommentRight on the money RogueFrequency. It's about how Satan can use all these worldly pleasures to deceive people

    General CommentThis song has nothing to do with "satan" or god. It's about getting starstruck in the music business. Selling yourself to be a star.
