Dog's Eye View – Hollywood lyrics

I hope you're happy out in glitter gulch
With your brand new friends
Who will shake you off like a dog
When they're bored with you

I'm not bitter, just a little sad
To be taken in by a smile
That swallows everything in its path
Then spits it right back out again

Hollywood whispered your name
And called you a genius

Hope you're happy with your
Flame throwing tongue that burns your face
But pleases the crowd as they gather round
And pay to watch you burn

Hollywood, whispered your name
And called you a genius and you believed us

Show me something that you think is real
Show me something that you still feel
Show me someone you didn't leave behind
When you lost yourself on the way to Hollywood

I hope you're happy in this hole you've dug
Where the sun spins around you and only you
Don't you get a little scared sometimes that standing
In all that light might show you for what you really are?

Hollywood, tell me who's going to save you?
I will not stand in line just to praise you
I will not stick around to watch you go down
One more lost genius

Hollywood one, me zero, Hollywood won, I lost
Hollywood won, I lost you, Hollywood won, Hollywood one
Hollywood, Hollywood won, Hollywood won
