This song is about I visit I had to the Griffith observatory.


I drove
into town today
to a marble lookout
near where you stay
you're city your spotless statue
at this time of day
And you are the tallest building
and the deepest subway.

And in the Hills
I'm a wandering man,
and you're the tree that supports
my well-traveled stand
the roaring rapids that carve to sea,
and the restless fish to which it feeds
oh an entire ocean to thank you soon
for your warm heart in its ribcage tomb.

In your body, I'm a healthy vein
and your nervous spine,
transmitting your pain.
and in your city, I'm your highways and drives
and a faulty wire you've learned to despise.
But to win you back would be my enterprise
for those memories beyond your eyes.
And I stow them away with my lonesome pride
somewhere beyond your city lights.

So we drove
to our home that day
to the spotless city where we now stay
to the marble lookout that we visit every day.
to the tallest buildings and the deepest subway.
