lyrics

heading southbound to L.A.
and the traffic's getting started
stop and go, merging lanes
smoggy sky
the smell of it reigns.

vibrations gained
by the texture of the pavement
shaking straight to those parts
with the aid of the press of my
hand
and I notice blank stares
on bored drivers
as my own intensity rises
steady at the wheel
steady at the wheel...

LA 101 so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?

so I'm moving through LA
and my exit's getting closer
crusted paint makes its limp
stating "Vineland"
on dirty green
flesh sticking to my seat
breaking past points of
resistance.
but my timing is off as
I reach for the gear
with the man in the Porche
just beside me
should I take the risk of
attention drawn t o me?
or stay steady at the wheel
steady at the wheel...

LA 101
so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?

chorus of the engines sing
lack of passion in those voices
but it's there on the street
visual cries
graffiti.
cultures lost
suburbia
striking me with dries and empties...
silent fish in a pond
metal
glass
and you feel so alone
all your life you were told
to trust no one
not even yourself or your
loved ones
so you're steady at your own wheel
steady at your own, own.....

LA 101
so off and disturbing
LA 101 do they know?
LA 101
where are they going?
LA 101 do they know
what they're missing?
