All her signals are getting lost in the ether
(That's what she wanted)
She's a landslide with a city beneath her
(That's what she wanted)
So take a good look, so you'll never forget it
(That's what she wanted)
Take a deep breath, I know I'm gonna regreat it
(That's what she wanted)

Holly's lookin' dry lookin' for an easy target,
Let her slit my throat, give her ammo if she'll use it,
Caution on the road lies, lies and hidden danger,
Southern California's breeding, Mommy's little monster

She's got a miss-ion, and I'm colleteral damage
(That's what she wanted)
She's the flow-er that you place on my casket
(That's what she wanted)
Save her the moment cause' her memory's fleeding,
Take a photograph as the last train is leaving

Holly's lookin' dry lookin' for an easy target,
Let her slit my throat, give her ammo if she'll use it,
Caution on the road lies, lies and hidden danger,
Southern California's breeding, Mommmy's little monster

Better run, run, run, run, run
(Holly Let Me Out)
Better run, run, run, run, run
(Holly Let Me Out)
Better run, run, run, run, run
(Holly Let Me Out)
Better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
(Holly Let Me Out)

    Most people would say that this song is about a girl or blah blah blah. But if you think about it, look at the rest of the album. Deep meaningful and complex songs. It would be weird from going from a song like 'stockholm sydrome' to a song about a girl from highschool? If you want songs about girls from highschool go check out enema of the state. No.

    I believe this song is about hollywood. If you think about it, it makes so much sense.

    All her signals are getting lost in the ether (that's what she wanted)
    She's a landslide with a city beneath her (that's what she wanted)
    As we know, the hollywood sign is up in the hills. Shes a landsilde waiting to happen.

    So take a good look, so you'll never forget it (that's what she wanted)
    Take a deep breath, i know i'm gonna regreat it (that's what she wanted)
    Take a good look at your life before you enter hollywood, you might learn to regret it one day.

    Holly's lookin' dry lookin' for an easy target,
    Hollywood is looking for someone who they can manipulate with ease.

    Let her slit my throat, give her ammo if she'll use it,
    Just another story in the hollywood newspaper

    Caution on the road lies, lies and hidden danger,
    Watch out

    Southern california's breeding, mommy's little monster
    Hollywood is in southern cali, breeding lots of little primadonnas.

    She's got a miss-ion, and i'm colleteral damage (that's what she wanted)
    She's the flow-er that you place on my casket (that's what she wanted)
    She's (being hollywood) slowly destroying the lifes, and souls of everyone in it.

    Save her the moment cause' her memory's fleeding,
    Take a photograph as the last train is leaving
    Times running out in hollywood

    Holly's lookin' dry lookin' for an easy target,
    Let her slit my throat, give her ammo if she'll use it,
    Caution on the road lies, lies and hidden danger,
    Southern california's breeding, mommmy's little monster

    Better run,.. Run
    (holly let me out)
    Better run,.. Run
    (holly let me out)
    Better run,.. Run
    (holly let me out)
    Better run,.. Run
    (holly let me out)

    This last bit is pretty self explanatory...
    They're looking for a way out..

    For me this song is quite complex. Maybe i've read into too much butlike i said at the beginning. The album isn't really the sort of album to have a song about a girl from highschool in it. I also believe this song foreshaddows the soon-to-be end of blink-182 of that time.

    Thanks.
