about

Hollywood Killerz Torino, Italy

Hollywood Killerz is a punk band from Torino, Italy.
They combine a variety of sounds that are refreshingly dissimilar into a brew of simple and dirty punk rock.
Hollywood Killerz recalls the NY punk more heavily than the former sleazy rock, they are an angry punk rock band that plays fast, loose, no frills rock n roll.

Track Name: 700.000
Marilyn Monroe was an hopeless icon
a blonde attraction for boring emotions
Miss Golden Dreams payed great attention
killed by the therapy of deprivation

Mickey Mouse was a sewer rat
a billionaire boy without a syndicate
Steamboat Willie charmed all the audience
He was ready to refuse the culture

Seven Hundred Thousand - writings on the wall
Seven Hundred Thousand - days to forget it all

Bettie Page was a black rubber angel
a tortured soul and a pretty cold stranger
Notorious girl opened up their eyes
whit a whip in her hand and the fire inside

Elvis Presley wore those blue suede shoes
with a wink in his eye and a suspicious mind
a double trouble from Graceland to hell
straight outta ghetto down to the blue hawaii

Seven Hundred Thousand - writings on the wall
Seven Hundred Thousand - days to forget it all
Track Name: Grey Celebrations
Everyday of our miserable life
we have to take our pills to face the truth
there's something black inside our hearts
a leaded soul defiled by anarchy
when all our notions fade away
it's time to burn your karma down the drain
our televisions predicted it all


But now we're going down the river
going to the oceans
deeper underwater

Grey celebrations
have stolen my emotions
Grey celebrations
have stolen my emotions

Your satellite is broken again
designs of death around an house of pain
the anaesthetic inhibits it all
a cultural drug for our little world
the resolution of our dreams
is much too low nobody pay for it
administration council said

That we're going down the river
going to the oceans
deeper underwater

Grey celebrations
have stolen my emotions
Grey celebrations
have stolen my emotions

(now everything become so clear)
(now everything is out of me...)
Track Name: Luxury Depression
Set your eyes on sugar souls
spread your own rational civilization
the culture of the sex objects
drive your neutrons into a lost destination

You can take your hammer or your needle and your spoon
You can write your books or put a bullet to the top
There's a place for heroes and is widely underground
make your choose so fast or just come back to where you're from

hey hey - listen baby it's just a place for two
exclusive invite to the corrosion satellite
hey hey - listen baby it's just a place for two
luxury depression - ain't a game for you

Getting close to turnarounds
history's an abstract recrimination
the power of the nuclear plants
took us in the human third generation

You can take your hammer or your needle and your spoon
you can write your books or put a bullet to the top
there's a place for heroes and is widely underground
make your choose so fast or just come back to where you're from

hey hey - listen baby it's just a place for two
exclusive invite to the corrosion satellite
hey hey - listen baby it's just a place for two
luxury depression - ain't a fucking game for you (ooo)

and the night is losing it's blue
and the world is over
and your heart is breaking in two
Track Name: Girls R Dead
Back in ’89
All she needed was a fight
she was just a teenage
She was just a desperate mind

Back in ’93
All she needed was a dream
she was just a loser
walking in this world of pain

No way
take me to a place called girls are dead she said
No way
take me to a place where I could die

Back in ’95
all her feathers come alive
she was just an angel
she was just a dead-end dream

Now she’s just a flavour
and she’s walking on our heads
now she’s just a miracle
walking’ in this hall of fame

No way
take me to a place called girls are dead she said
No way
take me to a place where I could die
Track Name: How (Could I)
You can touch the stars above with a whisper from your soul
and then turn around to open the world
you can slap the holy ghost watch the flowers turn to stone
you can take your tears and see through it all

You're the colour of the light that ignite the universe
you're the sound of pain that echoes around
and there's nothing you can do if your shadow smiles and bleeds
it's a promise made when you were young

You can tell them to watch their lonely skies
you can show them how to live their lives
you can give them another reason why
when you walk out on the streets all the planet stares and

How could I - tell me how could I walk away
How could I - tell me how could I walk away
I stole your smile from a photograph to light those dark and lonely days
a flame of sin and pain that tear me away
and there's nothing you can do if your face is black and blue
it's a losing game that's calling your name

Paint your visions on your face
Send your heartbeats by e-mail
Tell the truth about
your pretty mistake now babe

How could I - tell me how could I fall in a hole of pleasure, pain and garbage
and live to write my storybook with my blood and walk that far away
Tell me how to dive in the oceans spread my arms around your emotions
take your dreams and make them come true
how could I walk away - away - away - tell me how could I walk away
Track Name: Goin' Down
I sold my soul to a word that is four letters too long
I sold my world to a god that is giving' me what I want
I sold my dreams for the things that makes me dream
I sold my dreams for a whore who's killing me...

ooh - I'm not alone
ooh - out in this world

I'm going down - falling' out of control (I'm going' down)
I'm going down - in a dark underworld

I'm walking' in-to a scene that is dragging my body in
I feel my flesh falling' down on the coldest side of this sound
I sold my dreams for the things that makes me dream
I sold my dreams for a whore who's killing me...

ooh - I'm not alone
ooh - out in this world

I'm going down - falling' out of control (I'm going' down)
I'm going down - in a dark underworld (I'm going' down)
I'm going down - falling' out of control (I'm going' down)
I'm going down - in a dark underworld
Track Name: Somewhere Out Of This Mind
I've seen you walking around
this is my mind - baby this is my town
you thought that you were stronger than me
everything else was just XTC

you spend your nights by the phone
hoping to have the answer to all
don't waste your money on me
you are the voice that I don't wanna hear

Take me now where you fail
drag me now on your nails

Somewhere out of this mind
there's something to die for
Somewhere out of this mind
there's a new colour

Your alien lifestyle's killing your friends
driving your control to the very end
give me your pearl and baby gimme your head
I'm the one and now you're the dead

I love your voice and your hell
hate your eyes that drive me so sad
your poison has corroded my life
I don't care if you live or die

ooh - call it destiny
ooh - nothing new to me
ooh - call it destiny
ooh - nothing new to me
Track Name: All Tomorrow's Parties
I think you've got a light you wanna chase tonight
I think you've got a light for me and for you
I know you got some time you wanna spend tonight
I know you got some time for me and for you
uuuhhh

When I'm down - on your head
thinking about those times we shared
when I'm down - on your bed
I'm thinkin' both me and you!

I think you've got a line you wanna draw tonight
I think you've got a line for me and for you
I know you got some time you wanna spend tonight
I know you got some time for me and for you
uuuhhh

When I'm down - on your head
thinking about those times we shared
when I'm down - on your bed
I'm thinkin' both me and you!

When I'm down - on your head
thinking about those times we shared
when I'm down - on your bed
I'm thinkin' both me and you!

Thinking about those times we shared
all the things that we've said
all the things that we've been through
all those places that we've been to
all those dreams that we've felt too
Track Name: Over and Over
Sitting on your whip with the rubber crucifix
makes you feeling such a dick throwing verses for your bliss
now the walls are closing in and your prayers are caffeine
scratching old grease from your guts stealing roaches from the rust

Walking on your way stealing conscience and decay
mixing vodka and cocaine that’s the way you spend your days
now your doctrine is on TV and the minor is on his knees
but your faith is burning up and your boner is screaming loud

Civilisation! ! (oo-oo-ooooo - oo-oo-ooooo)
Authorisation! (oo-oo-ooooo - oo-oo-ooooo)

Take a rip off the bat 9/11 up your ass
20 seconds for yourself with a stripper for a friend
now you’re smoking methadone feeling guilty for your love
with a syringe and a gun and a black leather son

Enemies are back thread a needle on your head
dreaming dirty oral sex margarita in your hand
now the flames are coming close and your skin is getting old
begging for the lethal dose in the cemetery hall

oooh When you’re paranoid you call up your lover (over and over)
oooh Feeling sick for your cancer rollover (over and over)

Now your butt is in the rut and your ego is full of rust
second prize for your lies and the magazines go wild
we don’t need another day of plain torture and decay
dirty black apologies and a world in disbelief

Say a prayer for yourself and another for your friend
nuclear solidarity for a slice of sanity
your tears are full of gold but your blood is on the wall
you’re a pregnant prostitute with a finger in our eyes
Track Name: Through The Sand
Was it a light above?
or was it just a sort of dream
was it a message to me?
or was it time to say goodbye?

Was it right to be against
all the rules and all the laws?
or was it just some selfishness
to fulfil our restless souls?

OH NO! - Weʼre just waiting to be born again
OH NO! - Thereʼs a light that is searching for me

Was the passing of time
or was it just the dust of death
was it down to me
or is a human destiny

When I touch the particle
I can feel it down my soul
when I ride the space of time
my perception shivers

Through the sand of our euthanised behaviour
I can feel the human sweat drain out from our idols
wrinkled hands try to grab my twisted emotions
inviting all my sins in a masquerade ball
In our last day everything seems to fade away
except for all the dust that lead us the way
Track Name: Our Memories May Be Right
When I was like you
thirteen Million drops of blood ago from here
the rain was so black
and the girls were lost in empty broken smiles

those days are so far and the acid burned down our hearts
But now it’s too late
I’ve seen broken rejects begging for a breath
the rest of the world

is just having fun partying and getting drunk
the devil may care but I know it’s all over again

Here comes the rain
falling down on our eyes
and you know
our memories may be right

Here comes the rain
falling down on our eyes
and you know
our memories may be right

And it feels like yesterday (was it you was it you was it you?)
the past echoes in my head (in my head)
and the rain can’t wash it away (wash away)
I saw your writings on the wall

Here comes the rain
falling down on our eyes
and you know
our memories may be right

Here comes the rain
falling down on our eyes
and you know
our memories may be right
Track Name: Lovecrash
Tell me girl what you want from me
when I’ve got my drink
and you’ve got your dreams
beat me on the floor open up your world
wanna mess around

Tell me girl are your emotions so betrayed
your sensibility fade away
the sense of wonder is outta me

Give me lovecrash
Give me lovecrash

Give to me red hot plaisir
but I’m fucking drunk
like a skunk my dear
gotta break the chains
gotta break away
something’s going’ on
something’s growing’ up

Tell me girl are your emotions so betrayed
your sensibility fade away
the sense of wonder is outta me

Give me lovecrash
Give me lovecrash
Track Name: More Than It Hurts You
I’ve seen your eyes shine a light
as the stormy weather in the darkest night
and I know you’re waiting for the times to come
standing at the station in an empty road

I’ve seen your chances on the ground
as a broken glass scattered all around
and I know your heart is becoming cold
you threw it away as an unwanted son

Your demons are hanging around
your poison is dripping down
I know this all grinds on you

I know you
and I know you love me more than it hurts you
I know you
cause your heart is bleeding more than it hurts you
I know you
and your world is crashing down on the roses again and again

I’ve been around when you were down
as a guardian angel in a box of candies
and I know your time is becoming short
on your endless journey in a deadend row

I’ve seen your blood on my hands
stealing dust of love and dark innocence
watch your empty bed turning into sand
and your liquid breath growing’ into you
