There are days I want to leave L.A.
I want to break out the maze
Escape the dark haze these days
So many kids, I know your feelin' crazed

Crave materials thangs and makin' slave wages
Baggy pockets only got laundry fluff
Livin' where rich people always buyin' some stuff
So you try to act tough and hide what's inside

Hold your head high, gettin' fucked up and throwin' dice
As bad as yours and bad enough, I'm sure
My heart wants to love, but must navigate through war
'Cause seein' that we're wired to short circuit

Must mean the meek who will inherit the earth
Already work it

There's a land by the sand, grab the money
Plastic the life, end of the century
People actin' fake can't see the omens
Wake up yourself â??cause change is comin'
There's a land by the sand, grab the money Hollywood is such a place, fuelin' the frenzy

And everybody starts to peep around corners
Before they take their next step, they know their borders

In this $19.98 plus shipping and handling type netherworld
Every time merchandise dips in our coffers
We buy that, imagine that cost of livin', uh huh
The fakest shit and act cool, our friends are watchin'

Attention shoppers: check the selection in your reflection
Don't you feel so good does it enhance your fresh complexion

[Repeat: x2]
You gotta have it, you got, gots to have it 

As the world turns and all the money we burn
On the bullshit to make us happy, sometimes we never learn

That we're self-centered, we think we're better We look down as a people upon our elders

There's a land by the sand, grab the money
Now let go of it 'cause it's dissolving
It created all your fears and kept you hustling
Made you sever all the ties to your family

There's a land by the sand, grab the money
Plastic the life, end of the century
People actin' fake can't see the omens
Wake up yourself â??cause change is comin'

There's a land by the sand, grab the money Hollywood is such a place, fuelin' the frenzy
And everybody starts to peep around corners Before they take their next step, 
They know their borders
