Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood (Hollywood!)
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood (Why do I feel this way?!)
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye to Hollywood

[Verse 1]
I thought I had it all figured out, I did
I thought I was tough enough to stick it out with Kim

But I wasn't tough enough to juggle two things at once
I found myself laying on my knees in cuffs
Which shoulda been a reason enough, for me to get my stuff
And just leave, how come I couldn't see this shit myself?

It's just me, nobody couldn't see the shit I felt
Knowing damn well she wasn't gonna be there when I fell
To catch me, the minute shit was heated, she just bailed

I'm standing here swinging at like thirty people by myself
I couldn't even see the millimeter when it fell
Turned around saw Gary stashing the heater in his belt
Saw the bouncers rush him and beat him to the ground

I just sold two million records, I don't need to go to jail
I'm not about to lose my freedom over no female
I need to slow down, try to get my feet on solid ground, so for now


[Verse 2]
Bury my face in comic books, cause I don't want to look
At nothing, this world's too much, I've swallowed all I could

If I could swallow a bottle of Tylenol I would
And end it for good, just say goodbye to Hollywood

I probably should, these problems are piling all at once
Cause everything that bothers me, I got it bottled up

I think I'm bottoming out, but I'm not about to give up
I gotta get up, thank God, I got a little girl
And I'm a responsible father, so not a lot of good
I'd be to my daughter, laying in the bottom of the mud

Must be in my blood cause I don't know how I do it
All I know is I don't want to follow in the footsteps
Of my dad, cause I hate him so bad

The worst fear that I had was growing up to be like his fucking ass
Man, if you could understand why I am the way that I am

What do I say to my fans when I tell 'em


[Verse 3]
I don't wanna quit, but shit, I feel like this is it
For me to have this much appeal like this, is sick

This is not a game, this fame, in real life this is sick
Publicity stunt my ass, conceal my fucking dick
Fuck the guns, I'm done, I'll never look at gats
If I scrap, I'll scrap like I ain't never whupped some ass
I love my fans, but no one ever puts a grasp
On the fact I've sacrificed everything I have

I never dreamt I'd get to the level that I'm at
This is wack, this is more than I ever could of asked

Everywhere I go, a hat, a sweater hood or mask
What about math, how come I wasn't ever good at that?
It's like the boy in the bubble, who never could adapt
I'm trapped, if I could go back, I never woulda rapped
I sold my soul to the devil I'll never get it back
I just wanna leave this game with level head intact

Imagine going from being a no one to seeing
Everything blow up and all you did was just grow up emceeing

It's fucking crazy, cause all I wanted was to give Hailie
The life I never had, instead I forced us to live alienated so I'm saying


Goodbye Hollywood (Goodbye)
Please don't cry for me (It's been real)
When I'm gone for good (This shit is not for me)
So goodbye
Goodbye Hollywood (I'm not a fucking star)
Please don't cry for me (No way)
When I'm gone for good (I'm going back home)
