Lost Angeles

This song is by Colosseum and appears on the album The Grass Is Greener (1970) and on the live album Live (1971).

The truth that I bring
And the words that I sing
Are all meant for you
Trees they are full
The minds they are bare
And this time I care
Everyone has a car
But they won't travel far
Well nobody here has the sunshine that I still have

Sad sad town, sad sad town in the buzzing desert
Shanty town, shanty town, shanty town of the millionaire
A man will awaken one morning
Alone on the tall brown grass
A millionaire alone in the burning desert

Sad sad town, sad sad town in the buzzing desert
Shanty town, shanty town, shanty town of the millionaire
A man will awaken one morning
Alone on the tall brown grass
There's a millionaire alone in the burning desert

Here am I alone in this city
Ain't that a pity
I just want to leave
And get away from Lost Angeles
Earthquakes and smog
Are driving me out of town
I don't want to be here
I don't want to be around
Take me away if you please
I do not want to live in Lost Angeles
I don't want to live here
Just want to get back home
I don't want to be here any more
I want to be on my own
Take me away if you please
Get me away from Lost Angeles

Liner Notes:

Dick and I laying by a pool - hot sun - plastic city

going on all around us - seemed a different planet!

- a place of madness and pity - Lost Angeles.
