00:00:01
Well, I shook hands with the devil
Down on the south side
And he bought us both a drink

00:00:07
With a pad and a pencil sat by his side
I said, "Tell me what you think"

00:00:12
I've been looking for my savior, looking
for my truth
I even asked my shrink

00:00:16
He brought me down to his level
Said, "Son, you're not special
You won't find him where you think"

00:00:21
You won't find him down on Sunset
Or at a party in the hills
At the bottom of the bottle
Or when you're tripping on some pills

00:00:32
When they sold you the dream you were
just 16
Packed a bag and ran away

00:00:37
And it's a crying shame you came all this
way
'Cause you won't find Jesus in LA

00:00:42
And it's a crying shame you came all this
way
'Cause you won't find Jesus in LA

00:00:48
[Interlude]

00:00:58
Took a sip of his whiskey
Said, "Now that you're with me
Well, I think that you should stay"

00:01:03
Yeah, I know you've been busy
Searching through the city
So let me share the way

00:01:08
I know I'm not your savior
Know I'm not your truth
But I think we could be friends

00:01:12
He said "Come down to my level
Hang out with the devil
Let me tell you, in the end...

00:01:17
You won't find him down on sunset
Or at a party in the hills
At the bottom of the bottle
Or when you're tripping on some pills

00:01:28
When they sold you the dream you were
just 16
Packed a bag and ran away

00:01:33
And it's a crying shame you came all this
way
'Cause you won't find Jesus in LA

00:01:38
And it's a crying shame you came all this
way
'Cause you won't find Jesus in LA"

00:01:45
And that is when I knew that it was time
to go home
And that is when I realized that I was
alone

00:01:55
And all the vibrant colors from the
lights fade away
And I don't care what they say

00:02:03
You won't find him down on sunset
Or at a party in the hills
At the bottom of the bottle
Or when you're tripping on some pills

00:02:14
When they sold you the dream you were
just 16
Packed a bag and ran away

00:02:19
And it's a crying shame you came all this
way
'Cause you won't find Jesus in LA

00:02:24
I won't find him down on sunset
Or at a party in the hills
At the bottom of the bottle

00:02:31
Or when I'm tripping on some pills
When they sold me the dream I was just 16
Packed my bag and ran away

00:02:39
And it's a crying shame I came all this
way
'Cause I won't find Jesus in LA

00:02:44
And it's a crying shame I came all this
way
'Cause I won't find Jesus in LA

They say distance is relative

And relative to relatives I have

I’d say I’m relatively close

To breaking down

I'm not prepared for the future

So many things that I just don't know

I cut my hair, bought a new shirt, new
