"Hollywood" as written by and Daniel Johns....
In the middle of the side of the road
I'm a cynical baby
So your god fell in love with the war
Well he´s only your god

I'm the first male lesbian
I feel less being jaded
The gayest straight boy that you'll ever meet
And I meet everyone only not in the flesh

Easy, hopeless admiration of a Hollywood home
Easy, hopeless admiration

We're living in, we're living in a Hollywood home
We're living in, we're living in a Hollywood hole
We're living in, we're living in a Hollywood home
We're living in

In the middle of the side of the road
I'm a cynical baby
So your god fell on love with the war
Well he's only your god

Heads tied to a rolling sculpture
Limp feet proceed to hold me up
We're living in, we're living in a Hollywood home
We're living in, we're living in a Hollywood hole
Now that you've come home

    General CommentMan, I love this song, and yeah, RubberDuckieYAY is right about it being one of Silverchair's better b sides. They first played this song live at Rock In Rio in January 2001, which was over a year before they released it on the Without You single. Anyways, it sounds a lot like glam rock. Also, I really can't come up with a meaning to it, so someone please enlighten me.

    General CommentI thought it went "I'm the first male lesbian"
    Hmmm....
    I think that part is about everyone always telling Daniel that he is very feminine.

    General CommentPretty sure it's on the without you single, but the best version was in Rio, 2001.

    General Commentthe line:
    im the first male lesbian
    actually refers to an article that was written in a magazine when daniel and natalie were seen togather, the magazine got confused and thought daniel was a woman and wrote an article about natalie's lesbian liason etc, hence daniel is the first male lesbian, also
    i'm the gayest straight boy you'll ever meet
    for me i think daniel is refering to the time around neon ballroom when there were many rumours that he was gay. other than these two lines i think the chorus refers to how daniel has being elevated to celebrity hence the hollywood home. and Juzzeth is right RIR 2001 is the best version

    General CommentI really do think that this should have made it onto Diorama, next to The Door, i love dancing around to this. I also think that Asylum should have made it, but ah well.
