People are walking by my side.
I’m just here standing, not moving. Rolling eyes, clenching hands.
Watch their minds, feel their minds, catch their weakness,
focus on your hatred to blow them up. Make their heads explode.
This selfish crowd, this blind army,
how can’t they feel your pain, why don’t they care ?

Let them endure your sorrow, I want them so hard to suffer.
Words won’t come, my voice stays silent, I’m stuck in a speechless jail.
I need to shout out this rage inside me and the only way is to hurt them badly, to blow them up. Make their heads explode.

Something inside me is broken. I’ve lost my optimism
and that faith in humanity I had.
Your everyday’s problems make me want to melt your face off,
to peel your skin, so you’ll know how’s my pain, so you’ll carry my cross.
You will feel my suffering and you’ll get my scars.

Mary Bell Paris, France

Mary Bell is a Parisian punk band named after a British serial killer from the ‘60s, inspired by (mostly American) hardcore and grunge bands from the ‘90s. Their music sounds like something you’d get if the heaviest of grunge bands got together with feminist Riot Grrl punk bands to form a supergroup: Imagine, say, Kathleen Hanna on vocals with Buzz Osborne (of the Melvins) on guitar.
