This Ugly Town (So Beautiful)

What was his name?
Are you sure he’s dead?
Have you’ve got a death certificate?
Or can we bring his spirit back
To torture it?

This ugly town
This ugly town

When did they start?
Who tore it down?
What was his name?
Are you sure that he’s dead?
Was there a plan
Or just a free-for-all
For anyone with a wrecking ball?

Mephisto with a wet-look
You can see it in the sketchbooks
Of the early 20th century futurists
(Although I like them)

Often I’ve found
A key in a window
Often I’ve found
A key in a window
Beautiful window
Beautiful house
Ugly window
Ugly house

This ugly town
This ugly town

They can never wipe out the beauty
