Lyrics for California's Burning by Hot Milk:

Verse 1: Hannah Mee
Semi-automatic in a candy store
Strangers break down your door
And NRA on the senate floor
Is this the life you're looking for?
Start a civil war
Just 'cause they're bored
Yeah, ignore the law
Is this the world you're looking for?

Pre-Chorus: Jim Shaw
(They start something)
(And we do nothing)

Chorus: Jim Shaw
Claw out the feeling of this beating heart
California's burning in the dark
In turbulent times with subordinate minds
We are untameable
'Cause they are animals

Verse 2: Jim Shaw & Hannah Mee
Anti-Christ take from the poor
Lotta gold, but they still want more
Lock up kids just to ignore
A rainbow flag they wanna cure
Staring down a loaded gun
These fires ain't for fun
A wage war that can't be won
Is this the world you're fighting for?

Chorus: Jim Shaw & Hannah Mee
Claw out the feeling of this beating heart
California's burning in the dark
In turbulent times with subordinate minds
We are untameable
'Cause they are animals
'Cause they are animals

Bridge: Jim Shaw & Hannah Mee
Children of today, mavericks of tomorrow
We will build a bridge 'cause their minds are too narrow
Children of today, mavericks of tomorrow
We will build a bridge 'cause their minds are too narrow
Children of today, mavericks of tomorrow
We will build a bridge 'cause their minds are too narrow
Make them a home in united gallows
We will build a bridge 'cause their minds are too narrow

Refrain: Hannah Mee
Claw out the feeling of this beating heart
California's burning in the dark
In turbulent times with subordinate minds
We are

Chorus: Jim Shaw & Hannah Mee
Claw out the feeling of this beating heart
California's burning in the dark
In turbulent times with subordinate minds
We are untameable
'Cause they are animals
Claw out the feeling of this beating heart
California's burning in the dark (In the dark-oh-oh-oh-oh)
In turbulent times with subordinate minds
We are untameable
'Cause they are animals

Song Facts

“California’s Burning” is a riot anthem against the conservative views and criminal acts by people of power in the imperial-West.

In the pre-release Instagram Live (July 2, 2020), Hot Milk revealed that they were originally releasing another song with a music video, but it didn’t feel like the right time to release it due to the injustice being exposed in the world during the COVID-19 global pandemic. This includes the murders and assaults of people of color by the police, laws that protected the LGBT+ community being removed, and others.

The proceeds of the vinyl sales for the single went to the Black Lives Matter movement and Stop Hate UK organization.
