 B7#9G7
when they beat on a broken guitar
 B7#9G7
and on the streets they reek of tropical charms
 B7#9G7
the embassies lie in hideous shards
 A#7A7
where tourists snore and decay

when they dance in a reptile blaze
you wear a mask an equatorial haze
into the past a colonial maze
where there's no more confetti to throw

 D#7#9C#7D#7#9
 you didn't know what to say to yourself
 C#7C#7#9
love is a poverty you couldn't sell
 B7B7#9
misery waiting in vague hotels
 A#7A7
to be evicted

you're out of luck you're singing funeral songs
to the studs they're anabolic and bronze
they seem to strut in their millennial fogs
'til they fall down and deflate

CHORUS

now you've had your fun
under an air-conditioned sun
it's burned into your eyes
leaves you plain and left behind
see them eyes and fall
into the jaws of a pestilent love

you didn't know what to say to yourself
love is a poverty you couldn't sell
misery waiting in vague hotels
to be a victim
