Chords: B7, G7, E7, Eb7, G#m7, C#7, F#m7, F#7
          B7          G7
When they beat upon a broken guitar
            B7                    G7
And all the streets, they reek of tropical charms
         B7          G7
The embassies lie in hideous shards
      E7                   Eb7
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


G#m7              C#7                     G#m7
     You wouldn't know what to say to yourself
          C#7                  F#m7
Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
       B7             E7
Misery waits in vague hotels
   G7     F#7
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 fog
Till they fall down and deflate


You wouldn't know what to say to yourself
Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
Misery waits in vague hotels
To be evicted


B7        G7                  B7
   Oh and now you've had your fun
         G7              B7
Under an air-conditioned sun
     G7               B7
It's burned into your eyes
           G7               B7
Leaves you plain and left behind
  G7                E7
I see them rise and fall
         Eb7                 G#m7
Into the jaws of a pestilent love


You wouldn't know what to say to yourself
Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
Misery waits in vague hotels
To be a victim
