Seems appropriate, and this is a great vocal version I’ve not heard before.

    Sin City
    k.d. lang, Dwight Yoakam

    This old town is filled with sin
    It’ll swallow you in
    If you’ve got some money to burn
    Take it home right away
    You’ve got three years to pay
    And Satan is waiting his turn
    The scientists say it’ll all wash away
    But we don’t believe anymore
    ‘Cause we’ve got our recruits
    In their green mohair suits
    So please show your I.D. at the door
    This old earthquake’s gonna leave me in the poorhouse
    It seems like this whole town’s insane
    On the thirty-first floor your gold-plated door
    Won’t keep out the Lord’s burning rain
    A fool came around tried to clean up this town
    His ideas made some people mad
    But he trusted in his crowd
    So he spoke right out loud
    And they lost the best friend they ever had
    On the thirty-first floor your gold-plated door
    Won’t keep out the Lord’s burning rain

    Spirits In The Material World – The Police (Ghosts in the Machine)

    There is no political solution
    To our troubled evolution
    Have no faith in constitution
    There is no bloody revolution

    We are spirits in the material world

    Our so-called leaders speak
    With words they try to jail you
    They subjugate the meek
    But it’s the rhetoric of failure

    We are spirits in the material world

    Where does the answer lie?
    Living from day to day
    If it’s something we can’t buy
    There must be another way

    We are spirits in the material world
