LyricsEdit

What cruel world is this, nectar of the gods
Heroin gold in my veins and you in my thoughts
I’m on the freeway, racing at a million
And I just can’t stop
I call you up twice, hang up the phone
Call again, I wanna talk to you

I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like you never knew, knew, knew
I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like the color blue

What sweet world is this, honey on the vine
School kid dreams came true then passed in the night
I used to dream about people like you, now I don’t know why
I used to sing about people like you, now I just get high

I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like you never knew,
I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like the color blue
I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like you never knew, knew, knew
I get wild on you baby
I get wild and fucking crazy, like the color blue

Californ- I-A, homeland of the gods
Once I found my way, but now I’m lost
