towers floating on a 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

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 sea of ghosts . . . it's always the same, I told you

RIDE - downtown los angeles

RIDE - downtown los angeles
