On the first line Mark confesses that he likes
to stick to walls
Observing conversations and lifting them when they fall
He prefers to stay out and observe. He claims to be "a fire escape" like a wallflower.
For the next lyrics he used a metaphor comparing his body to a fire escape, where his blood is like the red paint and his spine like the stairs:
my spine's made of iron
My heart pumps that old red paint
On the second verse he complains about changes, about how great celebrities have been fading away and the new ones are getting all the attention:
I see the seasons change
All the young faces come and replace the dying ones
On the third verse he is expressing the hope he had for Los Angeles to change in a better place, despite every beauty that the city still has. He sadly seen the city in a bad situation:
Los Angeles, I've been waiting for you
To pick yourself up and change
The city you've made, this ocean and sand
Is founded on liars and self made men
Through his life in L.A. Mark had seen many artists and people with big dreams but not all of them achieved their goals. He uses again a very plastic expression:
I've watched the dreamers find their legs
And I've seen the ones that come get reduced to bones and rags
Mark uses the idea of "leg" as something upright, when the dream came true, and on the other side he is referring at "bones and rags" as the ones who have done all their best but they still didn’t achieved their dreams.
