He came from the East
They called him a beast
This king of terror insane
Neutron Ronnie, the people would whisper his name

Dangerous and mad
A torch in his hand
Spread fire by the light of the moon
Ooh, pyrotechnical wizard of doom

Oh no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
Ah till he dies it'll burn in his eyes

A phantom so cool
A midnight would rule
And molotov cocktail would rain
Babies screamin'
And house would go up in flames

When next Ronnie goes, nobody knows
But inside him's where Lucifer hides
Ooh, he's the boy with the bombs at his side

Ooh no here comes Ronnie, ah the boy with the flame
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
Ah till he dies the burning in his eyes

Oh no here comes Ronnie
Ah the boy with the flame
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
As till he dies the burning in his eyes

    General CommentThis song was about Ronald Regan. Power mad, certifiably insane. Now we have Neutron Donnie (Donald Trump). Once again we get to live under the threat of global nuclear destruction. I've missed the whole "Eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die" attitude of the 80's. ROCK ON!!!

    My InterpretationSeems to me that it's a song about an arsonist.

    General CommentI thought it was a fun take on a Lockheed B-2 Spirit, giving it a personality.

    General CommentOne of two truly great songs on Headless Children, the other being the mighty Thunderhead. Blackie said this is about Ronald Reagan, but the lyrics sound like they are also generally about a pyromaniac. It sounds like he started with that theme and then injected Reagan into it because Headless Children was meant to delve into topics of the day.
