Brussels

Brussels, your heart has been corrupted
they added a thick coat of glitter
on your dirty fingernails
they’re sweeping under the carpet
the bums, the punks

Brussels, your heart has been corrupted
we were promised translucent towers
while the butcher butchered on
there goes up one more office block
all glass, no class

Brussels, your heart has been corrupted
they dug deep into your belly
to make way for trains
tourists are found drowning
in chocolate fountains

there’s something slowly rotting at its core
you’ve gone from good-time girl to expensive whore

Brussels, your heart has been corrupted
how many blows to the soul can a city take?
