  • Beachfront hotel, twenty dollars a night
    Nineteen seventy-two, sun yellow and bright
    Too exhausted to think or to talk
    Young boys from bangledesh breakdancing on the sidewalk
    And the waves will tear them all to pieces
    The waves will tear them all to pieces

    Twinkling waterford crystal in the banquet hall
    Childlike religious paintings lining the wall
    I will try to gather my strength
    And i will rest up all week
    All i can say to them now
    When i open my mouth to speak
    Is that the waves will tear us all to pieces
    The waves will tear us all to pieces
