crime in the desert lyrics – brian eno

crime and punishment in tuscon
back to normal in the sun
playing blackjack in the drive-in
shooting snake-eyes in the mud
and when the moonlight came out, we were gone, long gone.

they found a body on the race-track;
no identifying signs
in his pocket was a notebook
with a number inside
and guadalajara’s just a few miles down the line.

she adored the broken-hearted
and those who showed her a bad time
they didn’t care for her body
they took advantage of her mind.
so they took her ideas and they left her behind.
