​Struggleville

This song is by Vigilantes Of Love and appears on the compilation album V.O.L. (1996).

Original video
All is quiet on the western front
There appears to be a lull
John and jane doe are sleeping well tonight
With the little thoughts inside their skulls
Salome she's undressed to the nines
And although a few pounds fatter
She got pavlov's bells on her ankles and wrists
She coming at you with a platter

So I stole down to the waterfront
To escape the desert heat
Oh what on earth you gotta do around here
To try and get yourself a drink
Heard john the baptist preaching
"Make way for the King
But if you want to recognize Him
You gotta tell me all your sins"

They are building a new gallows
For when You show up on the street
Polishing the electric chair
They're gonna give You a front row seat
Heard a sneer outside the garden
Salutation so well heeled
"Welcome all you suckers to struggleville"

I've been trying to negotiate peace
With my own existence
She got a stockpile full of weaponry
She breaking every cease-fire agreement
Oh the whole thing is full of decay
As sure as I'm made of dust
And into rust I know
The beast is falling

They are building a new gallows
For when You show up on the street
Polishing the electric chair
They're gonna give You a front row seat
Heard a sneer outside the garden
Salutation so well heeled
"Final stop no points beyond struggleville
Welcome all you suckers to struggleville"
