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
