  • You woke up in the rusted frame
    Burned out old Deville
    Your legs are shot and they're flushed with pain
    But you can't keep them still
    The sun sets and you're afraid
    Of the itching in your skin
    You stumble down the boulevard
    Of neon encrusted temples
    You're looking for the grace of God
    In the arms of a fellow stranger
    Disciples hand you catalogs of concubines
    As you stumble down the boulevard crying "Hosanna"

    Welcome to fabulous
    Welcome to fabulous
    Las Vegas
    Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
    Las Vegas
    Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win?

    Cameras on the ceiling tile no place for you to hide
    It's a hundred seven and you're looking for shade
    That no palm tree can provide
    But there's a little girl you remember back in Tennessee
    You have this reoccurring dream
    Where you see her playing hide and seek
    With a woman who used to know you very well

    Sunsets and neon lights
    Call girls and neon lights
    Black jack and lady luck
    Cocaine and lady luck
    You call upon her on holy knees tonight

    In Las Vegas
    Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
    Las Vegas
    Didn't nobody tell you?
    Didn't nobody tell you?
    Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win? Writer/s: BRANDON FLOWERS
