LA Devotee
Panic! at the Disco Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You got two black eyes from lovin' too hard
And a black car that matches your blackest soul
I wouldn't change ya, oh
Wouldn't ever try to make you leave, no
Oh, the neon coast was your sign
And the Midwest wind with Pisces rising
Wouldn't change ya, oh
Wouldn't ever try to make you leave, no

Static palms melt your vibe
Midnight whisperings

The black magic of Mulholland Drive
Swimming pools under desert skies
Drinking white wine in the blushing light
Just another LA devotee
Sunsets on the evil eye
Invisible to the Hollywood shrine
Always on the hunt for a little more time
Just another LA devotee

Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another LA devotee

You got bleached out eyes from the valley sand
And a black tar palms keep weeping your name
I couldn't change ya, oh
Couldn't ever try to make you see, no
The high rise lights that read your rights
And a downtown storm with Aries rising
Couldn't change ya, oh
Couldn't ever try to make you see, no

Static palms melt your vibe
Midnight whisperings

The black magic on Mulholland Drive
Swimming pools under desert skies
Drinking white wine in the blushing light
Just another LA devotee
Sunsets on the evil eye
Invisible to the Hollywood shrine
Always on the hunt for a little more time
Just another LA devotee

Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another LA devotee

La Devotee
La Devotee
La Devotee
La Devotee

The black magic on Mulholland Drive
Swimming pools under desert skies
Drinking white wine in the blushing light
Just another LA devotee
Sunsets on the evil eye
Invisible to the Hollywood shrine
Always on the hunt for a little more time
Just another LA devotee

Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another, just another, uh oh




Just another, just another, uh oh
Just another LA devotee

Overall Meaning

The song “LA Devotee” by Panic! at the Disco is rich in its intricate and metaphorical lyrics. The song tells a story about a person who is deeply in love with the city of Los Angeles (LA) and all its various aspects. In the opening verse, the singer talks about the physical bruises that the person has accumulated by "loving too hard," that shows the intensity of their connection to LA. The singer also admires the person’s trait of not being influenced by anyone else to leave the city.


As the song progresses, it continues to glorify the charm of LA. The reference to "neon coast" and "swimming pools under desert skies," paint a vivid picture of the city's appeal. The phrase "Static palms melt your vibe" shows a contradiction and is a metaphor for the friction between change and familiarity, highlighting the inevitability of change in LA. The reference to "mulholland drive" represents the entrance to the city from the west and the nightlife that city offers. The reference to “bleached out eyes from the valley sand” illustrates how people are shaped and changed by the environment they are in.


Overall, the song “LA Devotee” encapsulates the charming yet challenging essence of the city of LA, and how people who are enthralled by it are willing to withstand the difficulties and challenges in chasing their dreams.
