lyrics

California is a prison, a dirty fucking prison. We all wanna get out but we haven't done our time.

My heart is fucking worthless, my lungs are never working and everything is pointless in my mind.
So what's it gonna be? Why you giving up so easily? We've got another show to play tonight. Right?
Let's take a week out on the road, and maybe we could go some other place that won't leave us seeing white skies.

The coast's a fucking prison, and the city's a fucking prison.
The valley's a fucking prison, and the desert's a fucking prison.
And the hills are fucking prisons, and the bay's a fucking prison.
Sacramento's a fucking prison and LA's a fucking prison.
It's all a fucking prison, a dirty fucking prison.
We all wanna get out but we haven't done our time.

We don't have friendly neighbors, they regulate our behavior trying to tell us what we love's a fucking crime. When the chips fell in your favor, you should've changed your major, then you wouldn't be stuck here seeing white skies.

And I screamed "Art is fucking worthless, it's so damned fucking worthless." to every single tourist passing by.

This street's a fucking prison, this beach it's a fucking prison.
This town's a fucking prison, and my mind's a fucking prison.
It's all a fucking prison, a dirty fucking prison. We all wanna get out but we haven't done our time.

California is a prison, a dirty fucking prison and it's got me stuck here seeing white skies.
