Discussing her 2012 song “So Long” with CBS’ omg! Insider, Elvis’ daughter told the show’s Kevin Frazier the tune’s topic matter was “pretty self-explanatory.” (The lyrics in question to the tune? “This here is a city without lights/ Those are all the people without eyes/ Churches, they don’t have a soul/ Soup for sale without a bowl/ Religion so corrupt and running lives/ Farewell, fair weathered friends/ I can’t say I’ll miss you in the end.”)
She told CBS, “I had a very obscure and actually completely blocked view of reality for a very long time.
“So, when I got rid of all these nuts in my life and these — whatever, they’re crazy … people — away, that I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to go find out what’s really going on out there.”
Ortega wrote that “although the word ‘Scientology’ [was] never uttered by Frazier or Presley, it’s only too obvious that her answer is all about leaving the church.
“And what an answer.”
