Dying In LA

Album: Pray For the Wicked (2018)
  • The moment you arrived
    They built you up
    The sun was in your eyes
    You couldn't believe it

    Riches all around
    You're walking
    Stars are on the ground
    You start to believe it

    Every face along the boulevard is a dreamer just like you
    You looked at death in a tarot card and you saw what you had to do

    But nobody knows you now
    When you're dying in LA
    And nobody owes you now
    When you're dying in LA
    When you're dying in LA
    When you're dying in LA
    The power, the power, the power
    Oh the power, the power, the power
    Of LA

    Nights at the chateau
    Trapped in your sunset bungalow
    You couldn't escape it
    Yeah

    Drink of paradise
    They told you put your blood on ice
    You're not gonna make it

    Every face along the boulevard is a dreamer just like you
    You looked at death in a tarot card and you saw what you had to do

    But nobody knows you now
    When you're dying in LA
    And nobody owes you now
    When you're dying in LA
    When you're dying in LA
    When you're dying in LA
    The power, the power, the power
    Oh the power, the power, the power
    Of LA
