A "Berlin" Song

The 1980s band Berlin. Just look at them!

As I mentioned a while ago, I live in Costa Rica in a little town called Berlín. The town may be named after the German capital, but it’s completely different, believe me.

Anyhow, “Berlin” is also the name of a pop band from the early 1980s, so I thought I’d share one of their videos with you. It’s from the song “No More Words.” I’ll let you decide what you think of it, but for me it’s pretty strange. It takes place in the Great Depression, and the band members are apparently part of a gang that needs to rob and steal to survive.
Here are the lyrics to the song. As you noticed, there is also an “introduction” to the story at the beginning of the video. Can you think of synonyms or definitions in English for the following words?
misery
poverty
homeless 
ragged
hobo
I’d also like to know what you think of the video, so if you’d like, please leave a comment. Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
