Text Never Say Never La Locura Willie Peyote

This is the Italy of the future, a country of music while there is death outside
Now that they know this is the trend, all these rappers have a band
Even when they talk about autotune, all in costume like the X-men
Shouting scandal, they sound like Marilyn Manson in 2020
New punk old teens, I dye my hair and keep up with the times
There is the convict who speaks to the belly but the intellectual is more snobbish
Based on your audience, choose a nice character, Italy is a great sitcom
This stuff that was old five years ago now looks avant-garde and they call it It-pop
The majors get you a deal if you hit the ballet and boom on Tik-tok
We are hungry young people, we are slaves to the hype
Records are no longer sold as there is Spotify
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows
Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
We are successful young people, we are slaves to the hype
You don’t need the programs if you have consent
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows

Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
Never say never, never say never
Never say never say never say never say never

Now that they know that this is the trend everyone is selling their ass to a brand
All these bomber do not score but now it counts if they make the cash
Do they pump trash in the name of LOL and then get surprised by the Exit polls?
Shit wins if by dint of laughter he manages to seem credible
What does it take to decide “all this stuff broke my ass?”
These touts, impostors and scoundrels make me sick ‘these dicks the millions
“Bad intentions …” what happens? I was wrong
I didn’t understand how twerking means fighting patriarchy
We are hungry young people, we are slaves to the hype
Records are no longer sold as there is Spotify
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows
Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
We are successful young people, we are slaves to the hype
You don’t need the programs if you have consent
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows

Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
(Never say never) I don’t know if I bend I don’t know if I break
(Never say never) I don’t know if I mean it, it depends on the price
(Never say never) you call it future but it’s just progress
(Never say never) it seems the smartest and most fashionable Middle Ages
(Never say never) if it is true that the end justifies the means
(Never say never) I don’t say good taste but at least common sense
(Never say never) I’ve seen better, I’ve done worse
(Never say never) here, you say another ball if I can dribble

We are hungry young people, we are slaves to the hype
Records are no longer sold as there is Spotify
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows
Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
We are successful young people, we are slaves to the hype
You don’t need the programs if you have consent
We reopen the stadiums but neither theaters nor live shows
Maybe I do two dribbles, never say never
