home: the eagles ยป the eagles - the last resort

Testo the last resort - the eagles

She came from Providence


the one in Rhode Island

Where the old world shadows hang

heavy in the air

She packed her hopes and dreams

like a refugee

Just as her father came across the sea



She heard about a place people were smilin'

They spoke about the red man's way


and how they loved the land

And they came from everywhere

to the Great Divide

Seeking a place to stand

or a place to hide



Down in the crowded bars


out for a good time


Can't wait to tell you all


what it's like up there

And they called it paradise

I don't know why

Somebody laid the mountains low

while the town got high



Then the chilly winds blew down

Across the desert

through the canyons of the coast
to

the Malibu

Where the pretty people play


hungry for power

to light their neon way

and give them things to do



Some rich men came and raped the land


Nobody caught 'em

Put up a bunch of ugly boxes
and Jesus


people bought 'em

And they called it paradise

The place to be

They watched the hazy sun
sinking in the sea



You can leave it all behind

and sail to Lahaina

just like the missionaries did
so many years ago

They even brought a neon sign: Jesus is coming

Brought the white man's burden down

Brought the white man's reign



Who will provide the grand design?

What is yours and what is mine?

'Cause there is no more new frontier

We have got to make it here



We satisfy our endless needs and

justify our bloody deeds


in the name of destiny and the name

of God



And you can see them there


On Sunday morning
