Generation Terrorists Little Baby Nothing

Un duetto tra James Dean Bradfield e Traci Lords, attrice americana che ebbe una breve ma intensa carriera nel porno quando ancora era minorenne. Si pensi che delle decine di film pornografici da lei interpretati tra il 1984 ed il 1986 l’unico legale è “Traci, I Love You” girato a Parigi 2 giorni dopo il suo 18° compleanno…

Inserirei la canzone non solo nel percorso “Guerra alle donne” ma anche in quello sulla “Guerra alla Terra”, perché nel brano la violenza sulle donne e quella sulla natura sono messe sullo stesso piano: “Usata, usata, usata dagli uomini / Tutto ciò che loro si lasciano dietro è il denaro / Carta fatta di alberi abbattuti e macerati…”
No one likes looking at you
Your lack of ego offends male mentality
They need your innocence
To steal vacant love and to destroy
Your beauty and virginity used like toys

My mind is dead, everybody love's me
Wants a slice of me
Hopelessly passive and compatible
Need to belong, oh the roads are scarey
So hold me in your arms
I wanna be your only possession

Used, used, used by men
Used, used, used by men

All they leave behind is money
Paper made out of broken twisted trees
Your pretty face offends
Because it's something real that I can't touch
Eyes, skin, bone, contour, language as a flower

No god reached me, faded films and loving books
Black and white TV
All the world does not exist for me
And if I'm starving, you can feed me lollipops
Your diet will crush me
My life just an old man's memory

Little baby nothing
Loveless slavery, lips kissing empty
Dress your life in loathing
Breaking your mind with Barbie Doll futility

Little baby nothing
Sexually free, made-up to breakup
Assassinated beauty
Moths broken up, quenched at last
The vermin allowed a thought to pass them by

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair

You are pure, you are snow
We are the useless sluts that they mould
Rock 'n' roll is our epiphany
Culture, alienation, boredom and despair
