Los Angeles Is Burning Lyrics - Bad Religion

Review The Song (6)



Somewhere high in the desert near a curtain of a blue
St. Anne's skirts are billowing
But down here in the city of the lime lights
The fans of santa ana are withering
And you can't deny that living is easy
If you never look behind the scenery
It's showtime for dry climes
And bedlam is dreaming of rain

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

This is not a test
Of the emergency broadcast system
Where malibu fires and radio towers
sponsored links
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the media Mecca
They're only trying to peddle reality,
Catch it on prime time, story at nine
The whole world is going insane

When the hills of los angeles are burning
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

A placard reads
"the end of days"
Jacaranda boughs are bending in the haze

More a question than a curse
How could hell be any worse?

The flames are stunning
The cameras running
So take warning

When the hills of los angeles are burnin
Palm trees are candles in the murder wind
So many lives are on the breeze
Even the stars are ill at ease
And los angeles is burning

Brilliant | Reviewer: Alexander | 12/9/10

This song is easily of BR's best, both musically and lyrically: furious drums, punk chords, wonderful melody and serious meaningful lyrics - Greg G does not usually write this type of songs, only Mr. Brett somehow manages to create 'em. You can arrange it on the piano - it'll be great, sing it with a choir - nice and easy, play it like fast-paced punk-song - there it is, all in one. To my mind, LA is burning, Skyscraper and Walk Away are BR's finest, no You's and American Jesuses can ever match them.



Wishful Thinking | Reviewer: Marx | 1/23/08

It's really to bad someone put out the fires... Los Angeles is one of those many places on earth that should be on fire, that should rot in all its plasticity.

Indeed, the whole world is going insane.



surreal | Reviewer: steves | 10/25/07

surreal. So strange, this week has been. This song carries both wisdom and sorrow. A local LA radio station was playing this song Sunday night. People are always being reminded this is known to the local indians as "the valley of smoke". My heart and prayers go out to everyone. This town is full of magic, you'll see & experience it once the smoke clears. Keep the faith.



Stranger than Fiction | Reviewer: JVirgen | 10/23/07

Well last night we were evacuated from North of San Diego and the Malibu Fires are still burning bright as well as the ones in SD are we worse off than Fiction from Bad Religion it is a Media Mecca but thanx to them us and another 250,000 were able to evacuate



Absolutely great song | Reviewer: Paul Thomas | 12/18/06

What a melodic masterpiece. I can't believe how much I love this song, after discovering the music video on the X-box 360 Marketplace for free I figured what the hell. I enjoy it so much and it talks about our incredibly awful media. Great song. Highly recommended.



Burning Marvellous | Reviewer: Smellyape | 7/25/04

Ive liked bad religion ever since I can remember, this song is one of their best. It contains all the key features of being a BR classic, you have their harmonies, the flowing bass lines, the meaningful if somewhat peculiar lyrics...blinding!!! The thing I like about this song more than any other at the moment is that it sounds as though they have just got in a room and all started playing the same song without any practice, the whole thing just flows from beginning to end. Kudos to Bad Religion...lots of it ;o)
