Baby Mussolini

lyrics

Today was gonna be the day.
You dressed up -
Three million black berets.
But the wind just blows down
The concentric streets of this awful town.
If there’s noone out here, how can you crack down?

Oh, that searing shame,
Say they showed up anyway.
Say it fifteen times,
Say it, baby.

Baby Mussolini,
The people stray.
Not everyone gets their love
From Il Duce.
Baby Mussolini,
Cry your yourself to sleep,
And crave the day
When we all come
And kick you and your friends
Around the streets.

You thought -
You thought things would change.
Morning hours scraping at your face.
It knocks me to my knees,
When you’re weeping on the news.
The violence the mirror shows you,
The camera sees it, too.

Oh, you want to throw a party,
But the party’s not enough,
And everyone laughs at the cover-up.
Shooting rounds at the television,
Screaming and screaming.

You want to throw a party,
But the party’s not enough,
And everyone laughs at the cover-up.
Shooting rounds at the television,
Screaming, screaming, screaming like a baby.

Baby Mussolini,
The people stray.
Not everyone gets their love
From Il Duce.
Baby Mussolini,
Cry your yourself to sleep,
And crave the day
When we all come
And kick you and your friends
Around the streets.

Around the streets.
Around the streets.
