Duran Duran Lyrics

Sin Of The City Lyrics
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 had 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 rasing cain
Brands Happlyland hazard close down but no
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 heart
But angers not enough

Daily News reviews of the landlords life
Found six thousand code vilations light
The city has more a hundred thousand wars
All for one of Forbes' Four Hundred whores

Just one fire cracker on a big bonfire
Of a self serving penny pinching wiseguy style
Never allowing for the human condition
Never allowing for the human condition
The Sin is that these guys survive

City living heavy trouble
City living rough
We are given angry heart
But anger's not enough

You're using your people up
Stop killing your people now
Stop wasting your people now

Sin of the city...
