City Of Angels
The Distillers

City Of Angels

It's going down tonight in this town
'Cause they stare and growl
They all stare and growl
I take a scar every time I cry
'Cause it ain't my style, no it ain't my style

Going down to the gravel head to the barrel
Take this life and end this struggle
Los Angeles come scam me please
Emptiness never sleeps at
Clifton's 6 a.m. with your bag lady friend and your mind descending
Stripped of the right to be a human in control
It's warmer in hell so down we go

They say this is the city
The city of angels
All I see is dead wings

It's a ghost town rabid underworld
Dionysian night vitriolic twilight
A mirage comes up it never ends
Once you get born you're never the same

Left behind erased from time
Ain't no decency in being boxed up alive
Look around ain't no R.I.P. signs here
We don't rest in peace, we just disappear

So here we are Los Angeles
No angels singing in your valley of unease
I watch the sun roll down the pacific
Over hooker sunset strip

They say this is the city
The city of angels
All I see is dead wings

There's a black moon tonight
Shining down on the western neon lights
There's a black moon tonight
Shining down on the western neon lights

They say this is the city
The city of angels
All I see is dead wings
