West seventy-six
In a vacant lot
We cut the throat of decency
And left it to rot
I knew we were endangered species
I knew we couldn't survive
Because I glimpsed those empty swimming pools
On Rodeo Drive

Towering around me
Is a big hotel
Full of people making
The best of hell
It’s cold and grey in here
Just like her eyes
Her eyes are empty swimming pools
On Rodeo drive
