lyrics

A minute from the brothers light
A rocket in the open eye
In Black Maria Porter cuts
A journey west to bust the trust
Automatic Vaudeville grows
Into palaces and studios
With Roscoe driven out of town
Along with silence at the speed of sound

Hollywood hold my hand
Take me where I've never been
A perfect life in black and white
Trading in my day for night

There is anger in Babylon
A golden boy from O'Fallon
He's following the postman's code
With one foot always on the floor
The devil's candy and needle drops
The honey wagons and martini shots
The fuller's earth and focus puller
In Cinemascope and Technicolor

Hollywood hold my hand
Take me to the promised land
Wrap me in your silver screen
And save me from reality

Hollywood hold my hand
Pick me up when things go bad
Make me forget, make me believe
A place I never want to leave
