_____________________
   / System of a Down   /  I think this song is about Daron’s disgust for fame that
  / Lost In Hollywood  /  status and an achievement. It’s about how people are
 / Mezmerize          /  consumed and corrupted by the ideal of becoming famous.
/____________________/  The Hackensack-reference is an old saying, where Hackensack
                       means a dull town where there’s no point in being in. This
                      is of course pure sarcasm!

 Build-up Chorus:
  Gtr 1 plays the same as previous, while Gtr 2 strums the
  chords on every 16th-beat along with toms of the drums.

Similar to the first chorus, it's just only 4 rounds.

I'll wait here
You're crazy
Those vicious streets are filled with strays
You should have never gone to Hollywood

They find you
Two-time you
Say you're the best they've ever seen
You should have never trusted Hollywood

I wrote you
And told you
You were the biggest fish out here
You should have never gone to Hollywood

They take you
And make you
They look at you in disgusting ways
You should have never trusted Hollywood

I was standing on the wall
Feeling ten feet tall
All you maggots smoking fags on Santa Monica Boulevard
This is my front page
This is my new age
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Sunset Boulevard
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care

Phony people come to pray
Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray
The lines in the letter said "We have gone to Hackensack"
Look at all of them beg to stay
Phony people come to pray

All you maggots smoking fags on Santa Monica Boulevard
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Sunset Boulevard
All you maggots smoking fags out there on Hollywood Boulevard
You should have never trusted Hollywood
You should have never gone to Hollywood
All you bitches put your hands in the air and wave them like you just don't care
You should have never trusted Hollywood
