Santa Monica
Everclear Lyrics


I am still living with your ghost
Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
I don't wanna be your downtime
I don't wanna be your stupid game

With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just wanna see some palm trees
I will try and shake away this disease

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

I am still dreaming of your face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't wanna be your good time
I don't wanna be your fall-back crutch anymore

Walk right up into a brand new day
Insane and rising in my own weird way
I don't wanna be the bad guy
I don't wanna do your sleepwalk dance anymore

I just wanna feel some sunshine
I just wanna find some place to be alone

We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
Watch the world die

Yeah, watch the world die
Yeah, watch the world die
Yeah, watch the world die
Yeah, watch the world die

@MrJeffcoley1 Canada released it yrs ago. Babylon scriptures. Sumerian texts.
1984 George Orwell.
Its all a mental conditioned ideology since birth. Religion is manmade. Time is manmade. These buildings arnt natural. Technology isnt natural its killin the reality of things..
Its all an illusion, and in that is a decision to pick you reality.
The bible is mainly replaced. Burned. Edited. They poison everything. Monopolize the world. They laugh about it in our faces even! They tell us. What lines do you read? I support trump sure, but who knows. He could do something no one would expect. Or A" trump will be the last president.
Maybe even a bunch of people will die in a cple yrs cause the vaccines and.. Therell be a new pandemic in 2 to 10 yrs.
All depends..
Trump set them back 4 yrs! Red for the senate and house 22! They didnt expect that.

Idek man. I could go on for hours and hours about so many different things. How they replaced naturopathy. Made gmos. Put fluoride in the water supply for the first time in grand rapids michigan in 1945 after defeating germany and figuring out they did the same thing.. How america stole the eagle from germany. How alexander weigner and germany made some of the first manmade UFOs. How theres living organisms mixed with machines underground being highly watched and observed and used for things unbelievable..
How they divide our people. Let all these immigrants in our country. Inflate our dollar. They want to make black money too i heard? Fake shortages. Some caused on purpose all these damn ships on the coats thank Desantis for letting them all port in florida. Judicial watch. Best lawyers in america attorney. All that. They are specifically investigating the biden administration.
Ik i heard Nancy is being looked at for money things. Fauci for perjury.theres petitions for all there imprisonment. And theres also impeachments going on. 5 or 6 articles? Majorie? Taylor Green.

I could talk about how Antarctica is the only place everyone agrees to not have people. How mexicos gulf is slowing way down. How planet x or nibiru is right around the corner. How they put out all this bs to distract ppl from the truth. How they implement all this evil and idiocy... They fund both sides. Not this time..
Not this time aha!

I hope you get it man. Theres too much to even talk about in a time. It goes on and on. Nikola tesla. His communications and inventions unlike anything else. Orgon energy.
Aliens made us prolly.;)

Ill add ya on a social media or sum if ya wanna talk. I could answer. I could answer a lot :)

My dad died about 4 years ago and I remember him having a cassette of this when I was about 4. When I was about 7 I heard this with him for the last time, but I never knew the band or the song. Here I am, 11 years later, 18 now; on January 20th, 2016 around 1:00pm, I hear the song on the radio at my work (I'm a mechaninc's assistant part time) and it took me 2.5 hours of google and 90's youtube playlists to finally find it.

It took me 11 years to find this masterpiece.

Honestly I never in my life have seen so many positive comments about memories that one band has brought back while listening to. Seriously this is that type of band that makes people reflect and remember good times. Just an overall positive band with a good original sound of their own!

Statius

I don't listen to much rock/pop. Never did. But I love this song, and I watch this video a few times a week. It's meant a lot to me over the years. Much love to the band and all the fans.

My 12 year old just learned this on guitar. He LOVES this song. When this came out, i was in my early 20s. I never thought i would have such a wonderful child.
