Listen to The Strokes' track "Machu Picchu" from their fourth studio album Angles.

Official Lyrics:

Putting your patience to the test
Putting your body on the line, for less
Didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice

Selling your body to the street,
Selling your girlfriend's to the night for cheap
Wearing a jacket made of meat,
Sealing a letter made with horse's feet

And now you've heard that...

Waves turn to grey,
Life in the shade,
A violent crime,
And that's the USA

Platinum's on the rise,
Playboys in disguise,
I'm just trying' to find
A mountain I can climb

Putting your patience to the test
Putting your body on the line, for less
Didn't you know there was a choice?
It's never yours but someone else's voice

And now you see that...

Blondes turn to grey,
Life in the shade,
A violent crime,
And that's the USA

Porn's on the rise,
Psycho's in disguise,
I'm just tryin' to find
A mountain I can climb

Darling, aren't you gonna tell us,
They're gonna be oh so jealous,
We're gonna be oh so silent,
They're gonna be stoned in silence

I didn't want to ask you baby,
I didn't want you to have to ask anybody baby,
Is anybody asking maybe?
Can anyone hear me/this shit?
Why are you waiting beyond the door?

Life turns to dust,
And rain turns to rust,
Gossip is a truth,
And money pays for the lies we trust,
Your love is a surprise
Homeless saints are in disguise
I'm just tryin' to find
A nice place for you and I.
