Story

In this song, California is symbolic of the Hollywood standard, of materialism, of the way that certain media outlets and music industry people encourage a culture where we judge people based on their appearance, their weight, their fashion sensibility and all those other superficial things that get in the way of the planet working towards the goal of being united in spirit. 

Lyrics

Maybe you will love me when California’s gone
Maybe you will see me when it falls into the ocean
If it’s true what I sing then I hope it won’t be too long
‘til you finally come to love me
When California’s gone
 
Maybe you will shake fear when California’s gone
Maybe you will see clear when it falls into the ocean
And together we will be making up for all the time lost
And our love will be set free
When California’s gone
 
BRIDGE: 
I can’t wait, so anticipating the end of all the superficial things
We’ll drown the hate in a sea of love so loving
That nothing keeps us from God’s company
 
REPEAT Verse 1
