Declan McKenna- Brazil

The song popped up in my Spotify. Dude’s was singing about the Amazon, or some shit. I think that used to be a place, back before the money vampires.

Lyrics

I heard you sold the Amazon
To show the country that you’re from
Is where the world should want to be
For fine something all people needI’m faithless now though we win
Every time and I don’t know how
‘Cause I haven’t bought you
And I haven’t sold me
But the people are dying to, to get on TV

I heard he lives down a river somewhere
With six cars and a grizzly bear
He’s got eyes, but he can’t see
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me

Oh Lord, what have I become?
I’m the face of God, I’m my fathers’ son
I’m not, what you think you see
I know you can’t eat leather, but you can’t stop me

Why would you lie, why would you lie about how you feel?
I’ve got a mission and my mission is real
Because you’ve had your chances, yeh you’ve had enough
I’m gonna burn your house down to spread peace and love
And it gets me down
Oh Lord how it gets me down

I heard he lives down a river somewhere With six cars and a grizzly bear
He’s got eyes, but he can’t see
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me
Oh Lord
Oh Lord

I wanna play the beautiful game while I’m in Brazil
‘Cause everybody plays the beautiful game while out in Brazil
‘Cause it’s all you’ve ever wanted, and it’s all that you want still
Don’t you wanna play the beautiful game out in Brazil?
