lyrics

We drive
crazy
although we know the smoke is killing us
because we like to go that way
the 405 to the 10 into

Los Angeles
the meter's on - the freeway into heaven
LA - we're bound away

Years ago
my great great Aunt Boo
drove a yellow Ford
with her husband George
from Signal Hill to Malibu
you had to be
crazy
to live here then
long gone to Standard Oil
Mulholland and the Market Crash

Los Angeles
the meter's on the - freeway into heaven
LA - we're bound away

Before George and Boo lost everything
in '29 and he left her
for a speakeasy girl on Olivera Street
crazy
how things can change
before he called out for her near his death
and she came to hold him in her arms
before
before
before the oil this place once was a desert...

Someday
I may be
some great great something
to someone
and will that child be dreaming about me
and that great brave space that was
crazy
before it changed
before it changed
before it changed

Los Angeles
the meter's on - the freeway into heaven
LA - we're bound away...
