Written by Jay Negro


City lights are glowing black and white
city of angels on TV
and you will fly there
to make your way out on the scene
and you will be
one of the bright stars in the sky
so don't you mind all the sirens through the night
or all the screaming right outside your front door
its just another bad trip running down the corridor
And there's this guy who will sell you wisdom
on the street his name is Charlie
and his family's kind of neat he'll feed your dreams
with all this hope and LSD
and you will be one of the bright stars in the sky
you know you got there
but you don't know how or why
and as you're kneeling beside this dead starlet's corpse
the sound of helper skelter right outside your front door
