[C]    [G]    [A]    [E]    [F]    [C]    
[C]Laz  [G]y f  [A]lies a[E]ll ho[F]vering abo[C]ve  
The ma[C]gi  [G]str  [A]ate [E]he pu[F]ts on his gl[C]oves
And he [F]looks to the [G]clouds
All [F]pink and dis[C]heveled
There [B7]must be some [C]blueprint
Some [G]creed of the [F#]devil
Insc[F]ribed in our mi[C]nds  

A hi[Am]deous g[D]ame  
Va[F]nishes in th[Am]in air
The va[Am]nity of sl[D]aves
W[F]ho wants to b[Am]e there
To sw[E]eep the de[F]bris
To har[F]ness dead [C]horses
To [D]ride in the [G]sun  
A li[F]fe of con[C]fessions
Wr[E]itten in the d[F]ust [G#]    

[C]Out [G]in the [A]mang[E]roves
The [F]mynah birds [C]cry  
In the [C]shad[G]ows of [A]sulp[E]hur  
The tr[F]awlers dr[C]ift by
They're ch[F]ewing dried me[G]at  
In a [F]house of disre[C]pute
The d[B7]ust of op[C]iates
And syp[G]hilis pat[F#]ients
On bro[F]chure vaca[C]tions

[Am]Fear has a [D]glare
That [F]traps you like [Am]searchlights
The p[Am]uritans [D]stare
Their [F]souls are fluor[Am]esecent
The sk[E]in of a [F]robot
Vi[F]brates with [C]pleasure
M[D]atrons and gi[G]golos
Ca[F]rouse in the par[C]lor  
Their [E]hand-grenade [F]eyes
Invalid and [G#]blind

[C]    [G]    [A]    [E]    [F]    [C]    
A hi[Am]deous g[D]ame  
Va[F]nishes in th[Am]in air
The va[Am]nity of sl[D]aves
W[F]ho wants to b[Am]e there
To sw[E]eep the de[F]bris
To har[F]ness dead [C]horses
To [D]ride in the [G]sun  
A li[F]fe of con[C]fessions
Wr[E]itten in the d[F]ust [G#]

Lazy flies all hovering above
The magistrate he puts on his gloves
And he looks to the clouds
All pink and disheveled
There must be some blueprint
Some creed of the devil
Inscribed in our minds

A hideous game
Vanishes in thin air
The vanity of slaves
Who wants to be there
To sweep the debris
To harness dead horses
To ride in the sun
A life of confessions
Written in the dust

Out in the mangroves
The mynah birds cry
In the shadows of sulphur
The trawlers drift by
They're chewing dried meat
In a house of disrepute
The dust of opiates
And syphilis patients
On brochure vacations

Fear has a glare
That traps you like searchlights
The puritans stare
Their souls are fluoresecent
The skin of a robot
Vibrates with pleasure
Matrons and gigolos
Carouse in the parlor
Their hand-grenade eyes
Invalid and blind


A hideous game
Vanishes in thin air
The vanity of slaves
Who wants to be there
To sweep the debris
To harness dead horses
To ride in the sun
A life of confessions
Written in the dust
