K.Flay – Not In California Lyrics

Not In California by K.Flay


We have not allowed ourselves to comprehend what failure might mean for us
Is it a comfort or a curse?
A knowledge that we could’ve avoid to all these—?

The birds all died and the trees caught fire
And the government, it called us crazy
We built a big world, then we watched it all burn
‘Cause the television made us lazy
It didn’t seem true when the power lines blew
Yeah, the heroin, it made us hazy
I looked up at the clouds as I was freakin’ out
God save me

We’re not in California anymore
We’re not in California anymore
Traded all our sunshine in for a storm
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
We’re not in California anymore

The babies all cry as the scientists cry
But the politicians keep on screamin’
I’d like a road map, like to turn the clock back
But the internet, it keeps on freezin’
Drink up every bottle and I smoke some m--------
I was hopin’ I can find some peace
I looked up at the clouds, the light was peakin’ out
I can’t believe it

We’re not in California anymore
We’re not in California anymore
Traded all our sunshine in for a storm
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
We’re not in California anymore

Visions of the dissonance, I’m searchin’ for the synonyms
But all that I can say is that I think I lost my innocence
And I bet if I ask, everybody that I know, they’d wanna be a kid again
Visions of the dissonance, I’m searchin’ for the synonyms
But all that I can say is that I think I lost my innocence
And I bet if I ask, everybody that I know, they’d wanna be a kid again
So they could do it different

We’re not in California anymore
We’re not in California anymore
Traded all our sunshine in for a storm
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
We’re not in California anymore

Not in California anymore
Not in California anymore
Don’t say I didn’t warn you
We’re not in California anymore
