Halloween Lyrics - Dead Kennedys

Review The Song (3)

So it's Halloween
And you feel like dancin'
And you feel like shinin'
And you feel like letting loose

Whatcha gonna be
Babe, you better know
And you better plan
Better plan all day

Better plan all week
Better plan all month
Better plan all year

You're dressed up like a clown
Putting on your act
It's the only time all year
You'll ever admit that

I can see your eyes
I can see your brain
Baby, nothing's changed

You're still hiding in a mask
You take your fun seriously
No, don't blow this year's chance
Tomorrow your mold goes back on

After Halloween

You go to work today
You'll go to work tomorrow
Shitfaced tonight
You'll brag about it for months

Remember what I did
Remember what I was
Back on Halloween

But what's in between
Where are your ideas
You sit around and dream
For next Halloween

Why not everyday
Are you so afraid
What will people say

After Halloween

Because your role is planned for you
There's nothing you can do
But stop and think it through
But what will the boss say to you

And what will your girlfriend say to you
And the people out on the street they might glare at you
And whadya know you're pretty self-conscious too

So you run back and stuff yourselves in rigid business costumes
Only at night to score is your leather uniform exhumed
Why don't you take your social regulations
And shove 'em up your ass

Dead Kennedys were the most underrated and misunderstood band ever. Large fraction of their audience unfortunately did not understand 1% of what DK stood for and took lyrics like "Too drunk too fuck" or "Califronia Ueber Alles" or "Kill the poor" without any clue what they are really about. This is especially true in non-english speaking European countries where most of DK audience were unfortunately violent drunks who were really TDTF and had something "ueber alles"... But behind this eye-catching titles were the most radical politcal and social lyrics in history of rock'n'roll. From today's perspective, it looks unreal there were ever bands like DK....

Great song | Reviewer: Paulo | 9/7/09

Few rock bands get made a good mixture between good written lyrics filled of political irony, simple and authentic instrumental, and the same time rock dancing music with underground soul....

Dead Kennedys is the best of punk/hardcore

My fave | Reviewer: val | 7/25/09

This has always been one of my favorite Kennedy tunes. Now that I'm older and wiser, I realize that people haven't changed, however, they've been exposed more than ever before. (i.e. politicians in sex scandals, etc.)
Biafra was like my father when I was a kid. I learned more about life from his lyrics and spoken words than any other source known to me.
