From the recording The Music Our Love Makes

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.

Verse 1:
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

Verse 2:
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

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
