Los Angeles Is Burning

[[ badabadabap BAM ]]
/ C CF /

Somewhere high in the desert near a curtain of a blue 
The sane man skirts under the wind 
But down here in the city of the lime lights 
The fans of Santa Ana are withering 

/ C FC / Am G / 1st / 2nd /

And you can't deny that living is easy 
If you never look behind the scenery 
It's showtime for drag lines
And bedlam is dreaming of rain 

    When the hills of Los Angeles are burning
    Palm trees are candles in the murder wind 
    So many lives on the breeze 
    Even the stars are ill at ease 
    And Los Angeles is burning

    [bass walk from C down to Am]
    / Am G F C / / Am E / Am F / C G /


This is not a test 
Of the emergency broadcast system 
When Malibu fires and radio towers 
Conspire to dance again 

And I cannot believe the media Mecca 
They're only trying to battle reality, catch it on
Prime time, story at nine 
The whole world is going insane 


        A placard reads 
        The end of days 
        Jacaranda boughs
        Are bending in the haze 
        More a question than a curse 
        How could hell be any worse? 
        The flames are starting
        The cameras running
        So take warning
        / CAm G / C FC / Am G / Am - / F G / Am C / F - / G - / C - /
