Towers floating on sea of ghosts;
Downtown Los Angeles.
I saw the Parthenon on cotton clouds
Coming over the hill.

Ride
Downtown Los Angeles
Ride
Downtown Los Angeles

Trapped a dragon west of Chinatown
For fire-eaters up in Hollywood.
She said,
"My little sister took a picture of God
And floated away."

Ride
Downtown Los Angeles
Ride
Downtown Los Angeles

When your hands are broken,
When your words are slipping,
Put your arms around him
And go
Down.

Hide your money in the other hand --
Observations of a regular.
Towers floating on a seat of ghosts;
It's always the same,
I told you:

Ride
Downtown Los Angeles
Ride
Downtown Los Angeles

Downtown Los Angeles
Downtown Los Angeles
Downtown Los Angeles
Downtown

Fire-eaters up in Hollywood

Ride
Downtown Los Angeles
Downtown Los Angeles
Downtown Los Angeles
