"Still in Hollywood" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
I was walking down the street early this morning
Past the graveyard, voices whisper to me.
I was walking down the street, early this morning
And the silver tears of rain hung from the leaves
And I swear I heard the voices singing to me

Singing to the rhythm of the beat of my feet,
I swear I heard the voices singing to me,
Keep on, keep on, keep on.

Still in Hollywood!
Oh WOW! Thought I'd be out of here by now.
Still in Hollywood!
My, my I'm running on a wheel and I don't know why
I don't know why.

And on the bus today, I met the queen of L.A.
At least she said she was and who am I to say?
She was sixty-five and full of life,
She had purple-painted cheeks
And glitter on her eyes

And the troll on the corner, I flipped him a quarter
And he looked at me and smiled.

He wasn't abused, he wasn't confused,
He had nothing to gain and less to lose in Hollywood
Oh WOW! Thought I'd be out of here by now.
Still in Hollywood!

My, my I'm running like a rat and I don't know why
And so it's three A.M., I'm out walking again.
I'm just a spot on the sidewalk in a city of sin.
He doesn't give a fuck, he's living under a truck.
You know it coulda been me, guess it's just my luck.
But I swear I hear the voices singing to me,
Keep on, keep on, keep on.
Still in Hollywood

    General CommentAh ha, after searching and not being able to find the "it'll chew you up and spit you out lyrics ANYWHERE, it's sunday and I decided to take this task on my self

    Well I was tripping down the street early this morning
    and psychic lady pointed at me
    She said come on in and I gave her my money
    said tell me, tell me, what you see
    and she said she saw the angels dancing with me
    dancing to the beat of feet down the street
    she said she saw the angels dancing with me
    keep on, keep on, keep on now

    Still in Hollywood
    Oh I thought I'd be out of here by now
    Still in Hollywood
    My, my I'm running on a wheel and I don't know why
    I don't know why

    And I ran into Tommy Pomy
    what a goddamned phony
    had a new fish on the line
    well the last one left with the last bad check
    the only good one, and the other half died
    I gotta live and live, I gotta learn to forgive
    You know that everybodies gotta right
    But theres evil all around in this broken down city
    its a twenty four hour fight

    Still in Hollywood
    Oh wow I thought I'd be outta here by now
    Still in Hollywood
    My, my I'm running on a wheel and don't know why
    Still in Hollywood
    Oh wow I thought I'd be outta here by now
    Still in Hollywood
    My, my, my I'm running on wheel
    and don't know, don't know, don't know why

    So lets me and you go get a new tattoo
    we can hop on the harley and cruise
    We can start at the pier and share a beer
    Head out to the desert
    I can feel it from here
    Ride all the way to where the lizards play
    Riding on, and on, and on
    Theres a million stars it'll blow you away
    It's all so Concrete Blonde

    Still in Hollywood
    Thats right, you know we can ride it out all night
    Still in Hollywood
    Hey, hey, hey I got to, gottaway, gotta getaway yeah
    Still in Hollywood
    My, my, my yes I'm glad to be alive
    Still in Hollywood
    mama gonna be sombody, someday, sometime
    Still in Hollywood
    Oh yeah, ooo......

    General Commenti love this song, but i prefer the version "it'll chew you up and spit you out" better...different verses. i would submit the lyrics but i can't figure out what she says at the beginning of the second verse, and the lyrics for that song aren't in the lyric book. i can't seem to find them anywhere.

    General CommentI concur with penumbra. I wonder why that version isn't more available than it is? I had only found it on a compilation of IRS songs, but instantly fell for it.
