vegas

the thrill of risk is the commodity in trade here
and the market is never in decline
the glasses fill with champagne when your head's turned
for a price we're all so charitably inclined

(unwritten verse part 1b)

we empty our pockets to keep the lights on in vegas
the flashing bulbs and neon sex
there's nothing more alluring than what dreams can make us
and a girl with diamonds wrapped around her neck

yeah we empty our pockets to keep the lights on in vegas
we borrow and we beg to keep them bright
and like the faithful we flock to our mecca
praying in the hum of artificial light

there's a holiness in the heracy of money
and theres a hundred thousand prophets singing praise
to the hundred thousand others who came up empty
brother, stand back up and spend your faith

the streets are lined with promise of fortune
and bars where the girls all love you dear
they say that luck's a lady and you'll fuck her til she has your baby
in every glittering brothel that she's built here

and oh we empty our pockets to keep the lights on in vegas
the flashing bulbs and neon sex
no, there's nothing more alluring than what our dreams can make us
and a girl with diamonds wrapped around her neck

oh this parking lot town has been built like a quarry
the miners so soaked in sweat are digging deep for glory!
led by the burning in their chest!
led by the electric scent of success!
