Declan McKenna – Brazil lyrics

[Verse 1]I heard you sold the Amazon,
To show the country that you're from,
Is where the world should want to be for a fine something all people need

I'm faithless now though we win every time and I don't know how,
'Cause I haven't bought you and I haven't sold me,
But the people are dieting to get on TV

I heard he lives down a river somewhere,
With 6 cars and a grizzly bear,
He's got eyes, but he can't see,
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me

OH LORD! What have I become?
I'm the face of God I'm my fathers' son,
I'm not, what you think you see
I know you can't eat leather, but you can't stop me,
Why would you lie, why would you lie about how you feel?
I've got a mission and my mission is real
Because you've had your chances, yeh you've had enough
I'm gonna burn your house down to spread peace and love
And it gets me down,
Oh Lord how it gets me down

I heard he lives down a river somewhere,
With 6 cars and a grizzly bear,
He's got eyes, but he can't see,
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me
Oh Lord!
Oh Lord!

(X2)
I wanna play the beautiful game while I'm in Brazil
'Cause everybody plays the beautiful game out in Brazil
And it's all you've ever wanted, and it's all that you want still,
Don't you wanna play the beautiful game out in Brazil?

Oh yeah!

I heard he lives down a river somewhere,
With 6 cars and a grizzly bear,
He's got eyes, but he can't see,
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me!
I heard he lives down a river somewhere,
With 6 cars and a grizzly bear,
He's got eyes, but he can't see,
Well, he talks like an angel but he looks like me!

    This song is actually about the political corruption in Brazil. Declan said so himself in an interview. He is saying in the song that the wealthy people aren't helping the poor and they are just trying to get richer. The poor people are refered to in the ending of the song when he repeats I wanna play the beautiful game out in Brazil.

    The song is about a man angry at his aunt because she doesn't wanna play football in Brazil with 6 cars and grizzly bear on the Amazon river. He is going thru tough times and wants to watch the World Cup/ Olympic soccer but he can't because he needs his aunt to make sure he doesn't get lost. Eventually the aunt decides to do a free for all and she does not play football with Declan McKenna in Brazil with 6 cars and a grizzly bear in the Amazon. He hasn't sold his aunt or himself, making him in poverty and the only way to get out of hard times is to play and watch the beautiful game, but aunt Jessica does a free for all instead of playing the beautiful game while in Brazil on the Amazon with 6 cars and a grizzly bear.
