This Aint LA - The Digglers

Story Behind The Song

"This Ain't LA" is the only Danny/Mick collaboration so far, but we're pretty happy with the outcome and plan to continue the partnership. I think the song is about the dissolution of a mind and all the pain and guilt it paints on everyone around it.

Hazy days, wasted nights
Can?t seem to get it right
Lordy May, see the light
She lost the will to fight

And she?s worn you on her skin
Like a cheesy busstop bulletin
Had your chance at rearranging
A chance to ride in just like Paladdin

She couldn?t talk without complaining
This ain?t LA
You?ve been more than entertaining
This ain?t LA

Flagrant miscall, zero game
Deny the given name
Blood on the sidewalls, eyes on fire
Commend the funeral pyre

And she?s loved you in her dreams
Tethered moments short of ecstasy
Had your chance at understanding
Washed your hands with Pilate?s ennui
