Black California
Crush the innocent mind
Girl, I oughta warn you
My reputation's unkind
But you knew that anyway

Black California
Black California

Change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife
Change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife

I've been down in dirty black water
Poison feeds the mouth of disorder
(Who pays the devil?)
Obey the law, obey the disorder
(Who pays the devil?)
Obey the law, obey the disorder
(Who pays the devil?)

Black California
(Who pays the devil?)
Crush the innocent mind
(Who pays the devil?)
Who pays the devil?
Who rides the devil?

They change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife
Change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife

Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on

Black California
Black California

Change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife
Change your lives at the speed of light, yeah
Show them fear and they'll show you the knife

Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
Come on, come on, come on now
Come on, come on, come on, my children
And they'll show you the knife
