Versuri Eagles - The Last Resort

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, 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 in the name of God 
And you can see them there on Sunday morning 
Stand up and sing about what it's like up there 
They called it paradise, I don't know why 
You call some place paradise, kiss it goodbye
