Said goodbye to the redwoods
And I took to that ribbon of highway
Took up the high-speed chase
Rolled across paradise lost from
The Castro to South Central Hell A
Seeking a state of grace
And though I've found people love putting you down
Or putting down people proclaiming their love for you

I'd fall into the ocean blue
Fall into the ocean for you, California

Mysto breaks and moonscape lakes
I know your terrible beauty
Makes for your sex appeal
Wildfire sunsets this lurid
Stealth jets shooting surfing cowgirls
It must be the final reel
And though I've found all the sun pouring down
Don't shed any light on what I am here to do

I'd fall into the ocean blue
Fall into the ocean for you, California

As for the sprawl and all us shallow fools
Our crystal cathedrals, our backyard swimming pools
Our day is coming, so they say
The earth will move, the sea, wash us all away

And I'll fall into the ocean, too
Fall into the ocean with you, California
