Mojave Rain

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas

You woke up in the rusted frame
Of a burnt out old Deville
Your legs are shot and they're flushed with pain
But you can't keep 'em still
The sun sets and your afraid
Of that itching in your skin
You stumble down the boulevard
Of neon encrusted temples
Looking for the grace of God
In the arms of a fellow stranger
Disciples hand you catalogues of concubines
As you stumble down the boulevard
Crying, "Hosanna!"

Welcome to fabulous
Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers
Your harlots and your sin
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you?
The house will always win

Cameras on the ceiling tile
No place for you to hide
It's 107 and your looking for shade
That no palm tree can provide
But there's a little girl your remember
Back in Tennessee
You have a reocurring dream
Where you see her playing hide and seek
With the woman who
Used to know you
Very well

Sunsets and neon lights
Call girls and neon lights
Black jack and lady luck
Cocaine and lady luck

You call upon her unholy needs tonight

In Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers
Your harlots and your sin
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you?
The house will always win
