Butcher of Beirut

Paul Cargnello & The Frontline
Language: Italian

when you coming back? i ain’t complete
take it to the people take it to the street
i was just driving through your boulevard
dirty street
you ain’t wild you just play the wild card

i said backup
fill the cup
fill it up ‘til it trickles down
you better run from the butcher of beirut
you better hide from the u s a
demolition coming in from the east and the west today

the white hordes stretched an inch into a mile
the northwest said you can stay a while
wear our white hoods support our g d p
our g o d
as far as i can see we’re all born on a battle zone
forced to call it home

where i dwell
i can tell
by the tears on your face you’ve been running life’s race
you’ve been hiding your face from the rest of it
the fascists hide the best of it

i saw the winter turn to spring
police and thieves busted everything
the population knows love
the population invented it
the population knows love
so why are you preventing it

i’m convinced it’s time to go
to walk out into the mismanaged roads
and redraw the lines written into the cement
i dream about a world where i don’t gotta pay rent
to a fascist regime
