L.A.

Band/Artist: Brent Faiyaz

Album: Sonder Son

City of angels
Land of God
A city of demons
Land for us
In the city of angels
In the land of God
In the city of demons
That's the land for us?

L.A., L.A
The place of all places
Drug use and doll faces
Can make or break ya
I stood off by the wall and watched them skip the line
One night it's gon' be me inside
God damn

It ain't easy, let me tell ya
Account is overdrawn
Doing sessions in the valley every other night
Connections only get you so far
So far

But oh, what a feeling (How it feels)
Oh, what a thrill (You would kill)
To look down from these hills
Put the life I knew behind, but still
It's don't feel for real, 'cause I still ain't ate a meal

My stomach growling but I'm fucking styling
Spent my last 20 drunk, and Uber riding
Ain't nobody cutting checks, if you ain't happy smiling
That's shit takes all the talent, yeah
And it ain't easy, let me tell ya
Account is overdrawn
Doing sessions in the valley every other night
And it goes on and on

Yet I'm proud that I'm chasing something
It's all in all better than being a broke, bored and back at home
Oh, yes, it's all about making something
That's all in all bigger than anything I'd ever known

L.A, L.A
The sun can shine vicious
Poor folks and tall riches and plus the bitches
I stood off by the wall and watched 'em pick a side
One day from now, we all could die
God damn

It ain't easy, let me tell ya
Account is overdrawn
Doing sessions in the valley every other night
Connections only get you so far
So far

But oh, what a feeling (How it feels)
Oh, what a thrill (You would kill)
To look down from these hills
Put the life I knew behind, but still
This don't feel for real, 'cause I still can't cut a deal

I want a Rollie, but it's moving slowly
Spent my last 20 buying drinks for homies
And everybody want to know me
Just to say "you owe me"
This shit been getting phony
Damn

And it ain't easy, let me tell ya
Account is overdrawn
Doing sessions in the valley every other night
And it goes on and on

Yet I'm proud that I'm chasing something
It's all in all better than being a broke, bored and back at home
Oh, yes, it's all about making something
That's all in all bigger than anything I'd ever known
