Fountains of Bellagio

from Bent by the Weather by Life in a Blender

lyrics

Tangles
Complications for rollers
Conversations with smokers
Higher than the Fountains of Bellagio

Answers
In the carpet there’s patterns
Holding all combinations
That will win the mother of all motherlodes

Sailors, ginned up on Bailey’s
They become dancers in ice cubes in glasses

And they double down and they triple down
And they push their chips in like shopping carts in parking lots

And when they look around at all the dopes
Who are losing ground
They know it’s time to cash in

Chances, thrown with dice long with glances
Directed at false eyelashes
Batting faster as he gives the wheel another spin

Stumblers, landing hard on your shoulders
Throwing cash on the table and accidentally
Brushing lips across your chin

Boasters
Crowing like roosters
Looking for a crumb of love from almost anyone

And they double down and they triple down
And they push their chips in like a wheelchair with a wounded rival

What floor do you want? I’ll settle for the one that I’m on
Besides the winning numbers are there
Inside the bedside Bible

Tangles
Complications for rollers
Conversations with smokers
Higher than the Fountains of Bellagio
