Murder Incorporated
Bruce Springsteen Lyrics


Bobby's got a gun that he keeps beneath his pillow
Out on the street your chances are zero
Take a look around you (come on now)
It ain't too complicated
You're messin' with Murder Incorporated

Now you check over your shoulder everywhere that you go (oh yeah)
Walkin' down the street there's eyes in every shadow (oh yeah)
You better take a look around you (come on now)
That equipment you got's so outdated (come on now)
You can't compete with Murder Incorporated
Everywhere you look now, Murder Incorporated

So you keep a little secret down deep inside your dresser drawer
For dealing with the heat you're feelin' out on the killin' floor
No matter where you step you feel you're never out of danger
So the comfort that you keep's a gold-plated snub-nose thirty-two
I heard that you

You got a job downtown, man, that leaves your head cold (oh yeah)
Everywhere you look life ain't got no soul (oh yeah)
That apartment you live in feels like it's just a place to hide
When you're walkin' down the street you won't meet no one eye to eye
Now, the cops reported you as just another homicide
But I can tell that you were just frustrated
From living with Murder Incorporated
(Murder) Incorporated
Everywhere you look now, Murder Incorporated
Come on now, baby
Murder Incorporated
Everywhere you turn, it's Murder Incorporated
Come on now, darling

"So you keep a little secret down deep inside your dresser drawer
For dealing with the heat you're feelin'- out on the killin' floor
No matter where you step you feel you're never out of danger

So, the comfort that you keep's a gold-plated-snub-nose-thirty-two
WELL, I heard you got a job downtown, man that leaves your head cold !"

This is JUST SCREAMING purgatory, doom, and destruction.....

He fucking kills it.

The ultimate song reflecting today's world and what's coming...
Just the right sound , and on the ball .

Monique Harrell

One of the best Bruce songs ever I don't know why it was never released the first time. Still get chills when I hear it.

Tommy Morgan

Yeah as soon as it kicks in you know something is going down 😂😂😂

agree it's a great tune especially live, of course, which is why its live versions are better known than any studio version. My guess he didn't include it is that the song is too long (it would have been the longest song on Born in the USA, from whose sessions the song came about) with lots of rocking out that's more appealing in a live setting. It's also somewhat monotonous and the era's production techniques don't in my mind mesh well with the song; the gated drums and synthesizers characterizing many of the songs on Born in the USA have no place in this raw tune.

This song reflects the state of 🇺🇸
in 2020.
Think about it.
Your thoughts here..................

There was only so much room on Born in The USA. When pressing a vinyl record, too much audio on one side causes the overall sound to suffer. And this song wouldn't have fit on Tunnel of Love.

One of my favorite Bruce songs! Can listen to it over and over and it never gets old.....

Lou Betya

Still a killer song in 2020

This is when this band is at it's best. Playing on a small stage, in a small, crowed bar, and they are all close together on stage. Just like the 70's.
