NEEMA LYRICS

Lost in LA

from mulholland drive to skid row
you gave me a reality show
down the freeways of LA
or what you call the next pompeii

jack be nimble jack be quick
if you’re the candle i’ll be the wick
you be the junkie
i’ll be the hit

we’re lulled in to thinking
we can do or have anything
chasing the fairytale
that long ago was put for sale

we dig deeper we drill harder
we pretend it ‘aint getting darker
that the horizon isn’t poisoned
and we’re still living in the garden

jack be nimble jack be quick
if you’re the candle i’ll be the wick
i’ll be the magic
you be the trick

there are no easy answers
only countless shades of grey
we grab onto illusions
i heard you say
exploiting everything we find
in the hopes of finding more
forgetting what we initially
came for

from mulholland drive to skid row
some kind of mirror to our world
at least that’s what i heard you say
we’re all lost in la

jack be nimble jack be quick
jack jump over the candlestick
like a puppet
chasing its fix
