Sin Of The City

Sin Of The City

Duran Duran

Coat check girl up in Happyland
Has a violent row with a Cuban man
Julio leaves in a drunken rage -
Comes back with the gasoline
The club has no fire exit
The club only had one door
Only five people came out alive
The sin is that 89 died
89 dead! 89 dead! 89 dead! 89 dead!

The sin is that a year and a half before
The fire chief's out and he's raising cain
Brands Happyland hazzard close down but no.
No-one ever paid him no mind..
No-one ever paid him no mind..
No-one ever paid him no mind..
No-one ever paid him no mind..
No-one ever paid him no mind..

City living heavy trouble city living rough we are given angry hearts but
anger's not enough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
City living heavy trouble city living rough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
We are given angry hearts but anger's not enough

Daily News reviews of the landlords life
Found six thousand code ciolations light.
The city has more a hundred thousand wars
All for one of Forbes' four hundred whores.
Just one fire cracker on a big bondfire
Of self serving penny pinching wiseguy style.
Never allowing for the human condition. (hayyyeah)
Never allowing for the human condition. (hayyyeah)
Never allowing for the numen condition.
The sin is that these guys survive.

City living heavy trouble city living rough we are given angry hearts but
anger's not enough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
City living heavy trouble city living rough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
We are given angry hearts but anger's not enough
City living heavy trouble city living rough we are given angry hearts but
anger's not enough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
City living heavy trouble city living rough
(The sin of the city, the sin of the city)
We are given angry hearts but anger's not enough
The sin of the city yehh
Stop killing your people now.
Stop wasting your people now.
Your jacking your people off
Sin of the City, yehh
Stop killing you're people how.
You're wasting you're people yeahh.
