The Dresden Dolls are a duo from Boston, formed after a Halloween party in 2000, composed of singer/keyboardist/songwriter Amanda Palmer and drummer/occasional guitarist and vocalist Brian Viglione. They describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret", and have exposed an underground dark cabaret movement that started gaining momentum in the early '90s with artists like Salon Betty and Gavin Friday.


  • We all know
    There's no Hitler and no Holocaust
    No winter and no Santa Claus
    And yes, Virginia, all because
    The truth won't save you now
  • So don't tell me what to write
    And don't tell me that I'm wrong
    And don't tell me not to reference my songs within my songs
  • All of my blind ambition left me deaf with perfect vision.
  • And you thought you could change the world by opening your legs
    Well, it isn't very hard
    Try kicking them instead.
    And you thought you could change his mind
    by changing your perfume to the kind his mother wore
    Oh God, Delilah, why?
    I never met a more impossible girl.
  • If you did it, say you did it. If you didn't, suck it up and say you did.
