"Los Angeles" as written by Sean Chapman, Andre Davis, Moises Juarez, Matthew Ryan Mcewan and Patrick Salmon....
She had to leave...

Los Angeles

All her toys wore out in black and her boys had too
She started to hate every nigger and Jew
Every Mexican that gave her lotta shit
Every homosexual and the idle rich
She had to get out
She gets confused
Flying over the dateline her hands turn red
Cause the days change at night change in an instant the days
Change at night change in an instant
She had to leave
Los Angeles
She found it hard to say goodbye to her own best friend
She bought a clock on Hollywood blvd the day she left
It felt sad she had to get out

    General CommentThis song is actually pretty straightforward-- it was a small-town friend of Exene & John\'s from their early X days. She couldn\'t handle being in Los Angeles & had to go home.

    I like how it portrays LA in all its gritty, soul-sucking glory. No one ever talks about that side of it, walking down Broadway in the downtown after midnight, Inglewood Ave, North Hollywood or Santa Monica Blvd. past La Cienega. Now that\'s REALLY Los Angeles.
