Lyrics

GET OFF

WALKING THRU THE DOORWAY OF I SYMPATHIZE.
THERE'S CABINET IN THE HALLWAY, WHERE YOU HIDE YOUR LIES. ILL CUT TO THE CHASE, YOU SEEM OUT OF PLACE.
I CAN READ YOUR FORTUNE, SO YOU CAN WIPE THE SMILE RIGHT OFF YOUR FACE.
GIVE IT TO ME.
BY NO MEANS WILL I BE PUSHED ASIDE, YOUR LOVER WHISPERS SOFTLY BY YOUR SIDE.
THOUGHTS GO TO TOWN WHEN YOU'RE NOT AROUND.
HE SAYS HE DOESN'T WANT IT, BUT YOU KNOW THAT I THINK HE DOES.

YOU WANT TO FEEL BUT YOU DON'T, GET OFF.
YOU WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU WONT.

LADY YOU CAN'T BUY ME WITH YOUR LOVE.
YOU'RE THINKING THAT I WANT YOU,
BUT I DON'T.
THEN IT’S PLEASE BABY PLEASE, DON'T BE SUCH A TEASE.
DOWN ON ONE KNEE,
(DO YOU FEEL BETTER NOW)

YOU WANT TO FEEL BUT YOU DON'T, GET OFF.
YOU WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU WON'T.

LYING DOWN, KILLING FIELDS, WATER RUSH OVER US.
NO GUARANTEE OF ANYTHING.
WHAT WILL YOU DO TO FEEL ME IN YOU?
KAIN AND ABLE FIGHTING IN THE DARK.
THE END OF TIMES IS COMING HIDE YOUR HEART.
SPEAK SOFTLY IN MY EAR, WHAT I CAN'T STAND HEAR?
BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME.
I'M OUT OF HERE.

YOU WANT TO FEEL, BUT YOU DON'T GET OFF.
YOU WANT TO HEAR WHAT YOU WON’T BUT YOU DON'T GET OFF.
YOU WANT TO FEEL BUT YOU WON'T, YOU WANT TO GET OFF. FEEL BETTER NOW?

CAN’T FALL IN LOVE

CAN'T FALL IN LOVE LIKE EVERYBODY DOES.
I SAW YOUR SISTER.
SHE'S WAY TOO MUCH GOT A LOT A NERVE.
LEAST THAT'S WHAT I HEARD MOTION DETECTORS UP AROUND EVERY CURVE. MURDER IN THE HIGH SCHOOLS SEEMS TO BE THE NEW RULES AND DATE RAPE.

DO AN ABOUT FACE.
I GUESS IN YOUR CASE THERE'S NOTHING I CALL MY OWN. CARFUL WHAT YOU WISH YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MISSED AND I HOPE YOU NEVER KNOW.

PIN STRIPE SUIT LOOKS VERY CUTE.
WANT TO CHECK THE INSEAM.
IT'S A BIT TOO LOOSE.
DON'T REALLY SEE WHAT YOU WANT FROM ME.
YOU WANT TO ROLL ME OVER?
ARE YOU SWEET ON ME BABE.
NEVER CAST ASPERSIONS OR HOLD A GRUDGE.
YOU'RE PERFECT.
SAVE FACE.
FALL FROM GRACE.

DO AN ABOUT FACE.
I GUESS IN YOUR CASE THERE'S NOTHING I CALL MY OWN. CARFUL WHAT YOU WISH.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MISSED.
I HOPE YOU NEVER KNOW

THOSE WORDS YOU SPOKE, HIT ME HARD ON THE OUTSIDE, TORE MY HEART FROM THE INSIDE.
WHERE YOU GONNA GO?

DEMOLITION MAN GOT IT WELL IN HAND.
SOUR GRAPES ARE CREEPING FROM THE HOLOGRAM.
SHIFT INTO GEAR YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR
WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING YOU’RE SO CAVALIER.
NEVER LOOK BOTH WAYS
LIGHTNING STRIKES,
STINGRAYS THE END OF DAYS.

DO AN ABOUT FACE.
I GUESS IN YOUR CASE THERE'S NOTHING I CALL MY OWN. CARFUL WHAT YOU WISH.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MISSED.
HOPE YOU NEVER KNOW.
DO AN ABOUT FACE I GUESS IN YOUR CASE THERE'S NOTHING I CALL MY OWN.
CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MISSED, NOW YOU’LL NEVER KNOW.

THAT’S JUST HOW IT GOES

THAT'S JUST HOW IT GOES, CHIME THE RHYMES OF MODERN TIMES OF LOVE AND CRIME OF SOLACE AND OF SOUL.
THAT’S JUST HOW IT GOES.
I, I REMEMBER WHEN.
WE WALKED A WORLD WHERE TIME STOOD STILL,
I LOVE YOU NOW,
I LOVED YOU THEN.

ALL IN ALL I'D SAY, THESE ARE BETTER DAYS.
THE WRITING ON THE WALL, IT COMES TO CALL WHAT FATE WILL FALL UPON US, ALL, THE WRITING ON THE WALL, THE WRITING ON THE WALL.

THAT'S JUST HOW IT GOES, WE'RE SPINNING ON A BALL WHERE IT STOPS NOBODY KNOWS.
WHEN THEY OFFERED YOU THIRTY IN SILVER, DID YOU SAY NO?

THAT'S JUST HOW IT GOES;
SANDS THEY PASS THRU THE HOUR GLASS ASK WHAT YOU'LL ASK YOU STILL MAY NEVER KNOW.

THAT'S JUST HOW IT GOES.
THAT'S JUST HOW IT GOES, DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT I DON'T WANT KNOW.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

SHADOWS STANDING IN THE DOORWAY.
THEY'RE LIKE DIAMONDS, ALL HEART.
SPREAD ALONG THE HIGHWAY.
ALL THIS TIME BEEN LOST AND FOUND BETTER STOP BOTTLING ALL THAT UP.
YOU BETTER, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

FORTY TANKS ROLL THROUGH FALLUJAH.
THOSE BOYS THROW DOWN, THEY'RE ALL HEART DON'T YOU LET THEM FOOL YOU.

ALL THIS TIME BEEN LOST AND FOUND.
BETTER STOP BOTTLING ALL THAT UP.
YOU BETTER, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

THE MYSTERY OF LIFE AND DEATH.
STABBED YOU IN THE HEART.
WATER COLORS FADE IN AND OUT.
THE BLACK FALCONS FLY OVER ADHAMIYA.
YOU LEARN TO FLY BOY.

YOU CAN FORFEIT, ALL YOUR INVITATIONS.
WALK BAREFOOT, THROUGH THE STREETS OF EDEN.
ALL THIS TIME BEEN LOST AND FOUND.
BETTER STOP BOTTLING ALL THAT UP.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

FORCED ENTRY FROM THE JUMP SEAT FLY.
YOU LEARN TO FLY BOY.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

WHO WALKS BESIDE YOU

WATERFALLS AND CARTOONS, FALLING DOWN BESIDE YOU. NOTHING THAT I CAN DO. CAN'T SEE THRU, THEN YOU HESITATE.
WHO WALKS BESIDE YOU

CAN'T ANTICIPATE, CAN'T HARDLY WAIT.
WALK THE STREETS OF NEVER LAND.
WATCH THE SCENES THAT YOU COMPLICATE.
WHO WALKS BESIDE YOU

WAITED TOO LONG.
BIDE MY TIME PRETENDING THAT NOTHING IS WRONG.
COME ON TO STRONG.
DRAW THE LINE AT LAUGHTER.
THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG.

WATER COLORS DISAPATE, LIES ARE THE PRICE YOU PAY.
RUSH IS ON MY PATIENCE HAS COME AND GONE, STRAIGHT AWAY.
WHO WALKS BESIDE YOU? WHO WALKS BESIDE YOU?

FELL DOWN, EMPTY THE BITTER DAYS.
ALL THE WARS INSIDE YOU THAT TESTS YOUR FAITH.
FACE OF A STRANGER COMPLICATES, EYES OF AN ANGEL. TEMPTATIONS BACK HANDED BETTER DAYS.
GAZE OF NANTHANAEL COMFORTS ME.

BED OF ROSES

WANT A BETTER TIME WANNA BETTER CAR WANNA BETTER THIS WANT A BETTER THAT WANNA BETTER LOVER WHO WILL NOT TALK BACK.
WHAT AM I TO SAY THAT WON'T FALL AWAY THAT WON'T HIDE THE DAY LIKE SOME SILLY MAZE INTO A FOGGY HAZE.
YOU WANT SOME SWEETER CANDY WRAP.

HOW ABOUT LOVE?
SURE YOU'RE NOT PRETENDING.
HOW ABOUT FAITH.
ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT OFFENDED?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

IN YOUR SPARE TIME YOU'RE TURNING ON A DIME.
YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE.
YOU NEED A LITTLE REST WANNA HOPE TO GUESS JUST WHEN YOUR FATE WAS CAST.
YOU GOT IT REALLY ROUGH I MEAN IT'S REALLY TOUGH. SOMEBODY CALLED YOUR BLUFF, SAID SOMETHING OFF THE CUFF.
THE ANTIDOTE WAS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY.

HOW ABOUT LOVE?
SURE YOU'RE NOT PRETENDING?
HOW ABOUT FAITH? SURE YOUR NOT OFFENDED?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

FREE FALL, PHONE CALLS.
TIME STALLED, WHAT’S THAT I HEAR A CURTAIN CALL?
AH NO BABY DOLL, YOU LOST IT ALL.
YOUR DROWNING WITH NO FEAR AT ALL.

WANNA BETTER SCENE, WANNA BETTER DREAM, STANDING IN BETWEEN LOCKED INTO A BOX, FIRE UP THE VOX AND LET THE MOTOR SCREAM.
THE DOORS WIDE OPEN IF YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN FLY. THE CONDUCTOR HE WALKS IN ON THE SLY.
HE SEES TOO MUCH AND YOU HAVEN’T SCENE ENOUGH HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

MISERY LOVES COMPANY

FALLEN, (JOY AND ENVY)
HERO (MY HEART IS EMPTY)
LESS THAN (ON THE INSIDE)
ZERO. (JUST A MEMORY)
FOURTEEN (EMPTY POCKETS)
FABLES (FULL OF FOOL'S GOLD)
STOLEN (NEVER ENDING)
FROM THE CRADLE.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
MISERY LOVES COMPANY.

SHALLOW (IN THE DEEP END)
HIDDEN (NO ONE SAVES YOU)
WHO DO (ALL AROUND ME)
WHO DO YOU THINK YOU'RE KIDDING? (ALL I HEAR IS)
EMPTY WORDS YOU'RE NO PROPHET, NO CONFESSION CAN STOP IT.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
MISERY LOVES COMPANY.
CROSSING OVER, YEAH CASANOVA.

EMPTY (HEARTS AROUND ME)
SAGES (LIES CONFOUND ME)
WORDS FALL (ALL AROUND ME)
FROM THE PAGES, CONSTANT (THE END OF EVERYTHING)
(IS COMING)
STRUGGLE (I HAVE NO FEAR)
CAN'T STAND IT (OF ANYTHING)
SEEING DOUBLE (AND ANYWAY)

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DAYLIGHT

CAUGHT IN THAT SCENE GOING DOWN UP TOWN, THERE'S A LOT OF EVERYTHING AROUND.
THERE'S A STREET NAMED DEJA-VU, AND THE GIRLS GO WALKING THROUGH.
ARE YOU LOSING TOUCH? HAVE YOU SEEN TOO MUCH?
LIKE A CLOWN WHO'S DYING ON THE VINE AND BAD LUCK IS CALLING ON THE LINE.

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DAYLIGHT. STEPPING OUT IN THE BRIGHT LIGHTS.

WHO'S THAT GIRL THERE IN DISTRESS? WHAT'S IN HER HEART SHE WON'T
CONFESS? NOW ALL THAT'S LEFT IS THE BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS AND VOICE OF GOD.

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DAYLIGHT. STEPPING OUT, STEPPING OUT IN THE BRIGHT LIGHTS.

ALL BOTTLED UP AND WATERED DOWN.
WHISPER YOUR CONFESSION, DROWN IN YOUR OBSESSIONS, WIPE THE MAKE-UP OFF YOU CLOWN.

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DAYLIGHT. (DON'T WANT TO KNOW; DON'T WANT TO KNOW)

SCROLL YOUR NAME IN A FISTFIGHT, HOLLYWOOD.

HOLLYWOOD IN THE DAYLIGHT. ONCE YOU RUN, YOU GOT NO RIGHT.

DREAMS

I GOT A GUN THAT I HOLD ON TO.
SETTLE DOWN THERE AND WAIT YOUR TURN.

YOU'VE GOT SOME DREAMS IN YOUR POCKET.
I CARRY TOO BUT I GOT MORE THAN YOU.

I GOT DREAMS IN MY POCKET; NOBODY KNOWS.
I'M DREAMING WHERE NOBODY CAN GO.

I WATER IT DOWN AND LOAD MY BABY UP.
ONLY COOL GUYS KNOW HOW TO SHOOT.
I'LL HOLD MY BREATH AND AIM FOR THE HIGHWAY.
I'M LIVING A DREAM DRIVING DOWN ROUTE 22.
I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY WE LIE.
I'M NOT ASLEEP; JUST SUSTAINING THE HIGH.

THEY WALK THROUGH THE BROAD WAY LINE, THE OVER PASS AND THE STADIUM, THEY WERE LOST IN TIME.
THERE'S A PLACE NOBODY KNOWS, A PLACE WHERE NOBODY CAN GO.

I'M DREAMING BUT I STILL CAN'T GET BACK TO
DREAMS IN MY POCKET, NOBODY KNOWS .
I'M DREAMING WHERE NOBODY CAN GO.
BUT I STILL CAN'T GET BACK TO…

MYFB

BLINDFOLD, ICE COLD WHEN WAS THE LAST TRUTH THAT YOU TOLD?
DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?

YOU SEEM TO, HAVE FOOLED ME INTO MAKING ME THINK YOU LOVED ME.

DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?

I SEE THAT YOU'RE TWO FACED.
I GOT IT NOW, YOU’RE SO OPAQUE.
EYES ARE, LYES ARE CANDY COLORED RAINBOWS OF YOUR BLACK HEART, YOU RIPPED MY SOUL OUT

DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?
TAKE HOLD NOW.
DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?

WEARING DOWN AND FLIPPIN OUT. MORNING COMES, SEE SO FEW.
YOU'RE LIKE A ROCK AROUND MY NECK DROWNING ME IN PLAIN VIEW.

DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?
TAKE HOLD NOW.
DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?

YOUR COCKHOLD, BOYFRIEND SURE NOT GONNA TAKE YOU OFF THE DEEP, END LIKE I CAN
I SEE THAT YOU'RE TWO FACED.
I GOT IT NOW.
YOU'RE SO OPAQUE.
I GOT IT NOW.
YOU'RE SO OPAQUE.

DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER?
TAKE HOLD NOW.
DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL

TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE

ADAM TRAVELED LIGHTLY LIKE A HOLLYWOOD VAGABOND. FEARLESS, FADED.
EVE KEPT POUNDING ON THE TELEPHONES ALL-NIGHT LONG. CRAZY, JADED.

HIT THE MEAN STREETS.
PREACH WHAT YOU PREACH.
HEAD OUT TO THE BORDERLINE.

ALL I WANTED FROM YOU WAS A TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE, WHAT YOU WANTED I JUST COULDN'T GIVE UP

ADAM DOES WHAT HE WANTS, WHEN HE WANTS.
HE RENTS OUT HIS HEART.
CARELESS, FAKING.
EVE CRASHED DOWN THE DOOR, WANTING MORE.
MISS ME, GIVE ME MINE.
STARVING, NAKED.

ALL I WANTED FROM YOU WAS A TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE.
WHAT YOU WANTED, I JUST COULDN'T GIVE UP.

ALL I WANTED FROM YOU WAS A TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE. WHAT YOU WANTED, I COULDN’T GIVE UP.

ADAM LEAVES EVERYTHING. VANISHES WHILE EVERYTHING SLIDES.
WASTED, SACRED.
EVE SLIPS OUT THE DOOR, CAN'T WASTE ANYMORE TIME. SHATTERED REFLECTIONS.
HOLY WATER FALLING FROM THE SKY IN THE GARDEN OF GOD.
DARK WATER, TRIED TO WARN THEM.

ALL I WANTED FROM YOU WAS A TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE.
WHAT YOU WANTED, I COULDN’T GIVE UP

SOONER OR LATER

SOONER OR LATER THE MONEY TALKS.
WATCH YOUR BEHAVIOR.
I'LL BET IT WAS, OUT OF LINE.

YOU'RE SO FED UP WITH BEING COMPROMISED.
CAREFUL BABY, HUNDRED LADIES WILL SLIP THEIR MASKS OFF AND BEAR THEIR SOULS.

SOONER OR LATER, THE FOOL AND HIS MONEY TALKS.
SO DON'T YOU DO ME NO FAVORS.
I KNOW WHERE I NEED TO WALK.

SOONER OR LATER THE BODY COUNT RISES ALL AROUND YOU. FROM THERE YOU JUMP.
OUT OF BOUNDS.
YOU'RE SO FED UP WITH BEING COMPROMISED

THE HEART CAVES INTO DESPERATE SIN, THE BAND PLAYS ON. THE THIEF HE WINS.
ABANDONING THE FORTUNES OF THE HEART, OF FAITH, OF LOVE OF GRACE.
THE LINES YOU CROSS CAN'T BE ERASED.

SOONER OR LATER, THE FOOL AND HIS MONEY TALKS.
SO DON'T YOU DO ME NO FAVORS.
I KNOW WHERE I NEED TO WALK.
I HEAR VOICES CALLING ME FROM EVERYWHERE SAYING;

SOONER OR LATER, THAT SURE SWIFT SWORD IS GOING TO FALL, DOWN ON THOSE CLAIMING GOD'S LITTLE ACRE.
THE FALSE APOSTLE WILL RECEIVE A CALL.
SOONER OR LATER, THE OTHER SHOE IS GOING DROP. GETTING BOLDER AND BRAVER.

WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME

THINGS ARE NOT HOW THEY OUTTA BE BUT IT WONT LAST.

WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
I WON'T ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS BUT YOU CAN ASK. WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
LOOK THROUGH THE WINDOW OF YOUR SOUL.
I JUST LOST CONTROL.

INSTANT GRATIFICATION.
YOU CAN'T FIND.
WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
WALK THROUGH ONE OF THE VISIONS IN YOUR MIND. WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
STEP THROUGH THE WINDOW OF YOUR SOUL.
I JUST LOST CONTROL.
YOUR LOST AND FOUND, DON’T COME BACK.

WATCHING.
WATCHING THE BRIDGE BURN.
LEAVING ON YOUR TERMS.
DON'T FORGET, THERE’S NO MORE WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
THERE'S MORE WHATEVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
THERE'S NO MORE WHAT EVER YOU WANT FROM ME.
ITS NOT HOW ITS GONNA BE, NO MORE.

NEVER GET OUT OF HERE

THERE ARE NO WORDS MYTHS OR FABLES THAT WILL YOU TURN THE TABLES DARK
SEXY. I CAN HEAR LIES HARMONIZE.
SOME THINGS OUT THERE YOU JUST HAVE TO TASTE.
WITHOUT IT LIFE JUST MIGHT BE A WASTE.
WHAT'S THIS HOLD YOU HAVE OVER ME?

CAN'T FIGHT IT, I'M BARELY HANGING ON.
NEVER GET OUT OF HERE.

I COULD LOVE OR I COULD LEAVE YOU, REALLY DON'T KNOW.
NEVER WANT TO FEEL YOU CRY, DON'T YOU MAKE ME LIE.
IF YOU'RE REALLY LUCKY IN LIFE, YOU'LL FIND LOVE AND MAYBE EVEN HEAR SOME SWEET GUITAR.

CAN'T FIGHT IT. I'M BARELY HANGING ON NEVER GET OUT OF HERE.

I FEEL LIFE ERASING ME.
SOMETIMES THAT'S ALL I SEE.
WALLS CLOSING IN ON ME.

WE WALKED PAST THIS FINE LADY, SHE SMILED AT ME, SAID “HEY BOY DO YOU KNOW GOD?"
I SAID NO, BUT I THINK MATTHEW WRITES TO HIM FROM TIME TO TIME.

CAN'T FIGHT IT, I'M BARELY HANGING ON.
CAN'T FIGHT IT, I'M BARELY
HANGING ON.
CAN'T FIGHT IT, I'M BARELY HANGING ON.

NEVER GET OUT OF HERE.
NO, NO, NO NEVER GET OUT OF HERE

SHORT DRIVE

MY RIGHT HAND MAN SAID I'VE KNOWN YOU FOR YEARS NOW, I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
WHAT'S HIDING IN YOUR MIND MY FRIEND?

WHAT'S LOCKED BEHIND YOUR EYES?
I SAID I'LL BE DAMMED I KNOW.
MAYBE I'LL FIND OUT IN NORMANDY OR OLD MEXICO.
GONNA PICK ONE DAY, I'M JUST GONNA GO.
CALM THE STORM RAGING IN MY MIND.

HEARTBREAK, IT'S JUST A SHORT DRIVE NOW BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.
GO EASY NOW, EASY NOW.

SO HOW ABOUT YOU MISTER HOW'S IT GO?
YOU GOT IT ALL. GOOD FOR YOU, I JUST GOT DONE SEEING MY BROTHER RITCHEY LIVING DOWN ON TEXAS DEATH ROW.
HE THINKS I WANT TO SAVE HIS SOUL.
BUT I JUST WANT TO SAVE MINE.
HOW'S THE BACK BEAT JOE?
HE LEFT HIS WIFE AND HIS CHILD, SAID TOMMY BOY YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.
I'D GIVE MY HEART AND MY SOUL TO CALM THE STORM RAGING IN MY MIND.

HEARTBREAK, IT'S JUST A SHORT DRIVE NOW BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.
YOU WENT DOWN BIG-TIME, A HORROR STORY.
THE HARD COLD TRUTH THAT SEEMS LIKE THE SAME OLD STORY.
GOT LOST AND FOUND IN ALL THOSE FACES. FIND LOVE HIDING IN THE STRANGEST PLACES;
GO EASY NOW, EASY NOW.

TIME STOOD STILL THE CLOCK FELL OF THE SHELF.
MY BOY PUT A GUN INTOHIS MOUTH.
HEARTS BROKE, THE SHOTS RANG OUT.
THE STORM RAGED IN HIS MIND.
TOOK A CAB TO THE JERSEY SHORE.
I’VE SEEN ALL I CARE TO SEE, DRIVER YOU JUST PUSH ME OUT THE DOOR.
NOTHING HOLDING ME HERE ANYMORE.
JUST A STORM RAGING IN MY MIND.

HEARTBREAK, IT'S JUST A SHORT DRIVE NOW BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE.
SOME THINGS YOU CAN RELATE, OTHERS THEY TWIST YOUR MIND.
HEARTBREAK, IT'S JUST A SHORT DRIVE NOW, GO EASY NOW; IT’S JUST A SHORT DRIVE NOW.
GO EASY NOW.

WOUNDED IN LOVE

IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO LEAVE AND I AIN’T HARDLY JOKING.
THINGS WERE FALLING DOWN AROUND ME LIKE THE BERLIN WALL.
HEART WAS TATTOOED ON MY SLEEVE LIKE SOME ALBATROSS.
I WAS SET RIGHT TO TAKE A FALL.
SWEETEST THING I’D EVER SEEN.
DANCED IN THE SHADOWS FOR ME.
SAID, “YOU’VE BEEN LOST NOW FOR SO LONG, IT’S TIME YOU HOLD ON TO ME. END THIS MISERY”

I SAID YEAH, YEAH, I WOULD BUT YOU’D LEAVE ME WOUNDED IN LOVE.

DARKNESS HAD COME OVER ME LIKE SOME HAUNTED HOUSE.
I WAS DROWNING KNEE DEEP IN UN-HOLY DAYS.
INCOGNITO FAITH AND REASON THEY WERE EVERYWHERE.
TO HIDE IN PLAIN SITE WAS MY BEST DEFENSE.
SWEETEST THING I’D EVER SEEN.
DANCED IN THE SHADOWS FOR ME.
SAID, “THE TEARS YOU CRY ON THE BATTLE FIELD OF LIFE, ARE THE LIQUID COWARDICE OF THE WEAK, YOU REALLY OUGHT TO HOLD ON TO ME”

I SAID YEAH, YEAH, I WOULD BUT YOU’D LEAVE ME WOUNDED IN LOVE.

THE HARDEST THING IS THIS INTERNAL CONTRADICTION;
YOU SEE MY TWO FACES THEY DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE AT ALL.
I’VE BEEN REACHING FOR THE WORLD GOING PLACES.
AS IF THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF IT ALL.

THE GATE WENT DOWN I PAID THE TOLL AT THE BORDER OF THE SOUL AND JUST WHEN I DIDN’T THINK I COULDN’T TAKE NO MORE.
YOU’RE SUBTLETY CAME DOWN ON ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS,
BUT NOTHING EVER MATTERED I STILL WAS GOING TO GET MY FIX.
SWEETEST THING I’D EVER SEEN. DANCED IN THE SHADOWS FOR ME.
SAID “THERE ARE ONLY TWO ROADS YOU CAN TRAVEL IN LIFE, ONE LEADS TO SORROW, ONE LEADS TO ME, THERE’S NO MYSTERY”

I SAID YEAH, YEAH, ALL RIGHT BUT DON’T YOU LEAVE ME WOUNDED IN LOVE.
I SAID YEAH, YEAH, DON’T YOU LEAVE ME WOUNDED IN LOVE?
I SAID YEAH, YEAH, DON’T YOU LEAVE ME WOUNDED IN LOVE?

BED OF ROSES

WANT A BETTER TIME WANT A BETTER CAR WANT A BETTER THIS WANT A BETTER THAT,
WANT A BETTER LOVER WHO WILL NOT TALK BACK.
WHAT AM I TO SAY THAT WON’T FALL AWAY THAT WON’T HIDE THE DAY LIKE SOME SILLY MAZE INTO A FOGGY HAZE.

HOW ABOUT LOVE?
SURE YOU’RE NOT PRETENDING?
HOW ABOUT FAITH?
ARE YOU SURE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT OFFENDED?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

IN YOUR SPARE TIME YOU’RE TURNING ON A DIME.
YOU NEED TO GET A LIFE, YOU NEED A LITTLE REST.
WANNA HOPE TO GUESS JUST WHEN YOUR FATE WAS CAST?

YOU GOT IT REALLY ROUGH;
I MEAN IT’S REALLY TOUGH.
SOMEBODY CALLED YOUR BLUFF SAID SOMETHING OFF THE CUFF.
THE ANTIDOTE WAS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY.

HOW ABOUT LOVE?
SURE YOU’RE NOT PRETENDING?
HOW ABOUT FAITH?
ARE YOU SURE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT OFFENDED?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

IT’S ALL ABOUT ME WHAT IF I FALL?
WHO WILL I CALL?
STARING AT THE WALLS,
RUNNING DOWN THE HALLS OF MY BAD MEMORIES.

WANT A BETTER SCENE, WANNA BETTER DREAM, STANDING IN BETWEEN.
LOCKED INTO A BOX, FIRE UP THE VOX AND LET THE MOTOR SCREAM.

HOW ABOUT LOVE?
SURE YOU’RE NOT PRETENDING?
HOW ABOUT FAITH?
ARE YOU SURE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT OFFENDED?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?

THE DOORS WIDE OPEN IF YOU THINK THAT YOU CAN FLY.
THE CONDUCTOR HE WALKS IN ON THE SLY.
HE SEES TOO MUCH, YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ENOUGH.

HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES?
HOW ABOUT A BED OF ROSES? YEAH YEAH, YEAH.

BETTER THAN NOTHING

ALL ALONE NEEDING LOVE HEADING TOWARDS THE DOOR.
SIT BACK DOWN; PASS THE TIME LIKE YOUR KEEPING SCORE.
LYING DOWN WITH A MEMORY SEEMS SILLY I KNOW, BUT IT BETTER THAN NOTHING.

CAN YOU CATCH A DAY THAT’S GOING TO STIR YOUR SOUL?
YOU RUN FROM YOURSELF, YOU WATCH IT TAKE ITS TOLL.
PRAYING IN THE DARK SEEMS SILLY I KNOW, BUT IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING.

WALKING PLANK, BLINDED BY DAYLIGHT.

SUFFOCATING SO TIRED OF WAITING.
EVERYBODY YOU KNOW THINKS IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING.

SO IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER NO?
YOU TRY TO CONVINCE YOURSELF NOT TO STAY THEN NOT TO GO.
ALL THOSE FADED EMOTIONS HANGING AROUND.
WHEN YOU FINALLY DO COME UP FOR AIR SOME REFLECTION OF YOU IS ALWAYS DANCING WITH DESPAIR, ALL THOSE FADED EMOTIONS HANGING AROUND.

WHEN THE THREAD THAT YOU’RE HANGING ONTO, NO LONGER NEEDS OR NO LONGER WANTS YOU.
LIFE CAN SEEM RUTHLESS I KNOW, BUT IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING.

WALKING PLANK, BLINDED BY DAYLIGHT.
WHAT’S SO FREIGHTING ABOUT THOSE SHADOWS OF LOVE?
A SOFT CHARADE UNDER THE MOONLIGHT IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.
THERE’S NO GETTING OFF OF THIS MERRY GO ROUND.

ALL NIGHT LONG

SO YOU WANT TO HOLD ME MISS LONELY?
BABY DON’T YOU EVER MAKE NO MISTAKE.
YOU WANT TO HOLD ME MISS LONELY?
I NEED A LOT OF GIVE AND TAKE.
I WANT TO LOVE YOU ALL NIGHT LONG.

SO YOU WANT TO OWN ME MISS TREATED?
DON’T WANT TO OWN UP TO YOUR MISTAKES.
YOU DON’T OWN ME, LIKE THE MONA LISA, I SEE THE SMILE HIDING ON YOUR FACE WHEN I WHISPER TO YOU.
ALL NIGHT LONG, I COULD TEACH YOU BABY.
ALL NIGHT LONG.
YOU COMPLETE ME BABY.

SO YOU WANT TO HOLD ME MISS LONELY?

YOU WANT TO HOLD ME MISS LONELY?
I NEED A LOT OF GIVE AND TAKE.

TURN AWAY

CATCH YOUR EYE YOU JUST TURN AWAY, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
DOESN’T REALLY MATTER MUCH I WAS JUST WONDERING, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
I WASN’T OUT TO HURT ANYBODY BUT SOMETIMES IT JUST WORKS OUT LIKE THAT.
SO GO AHEAD AND HAVE YOUR CEREMONY AND TURN AWAY FROM ME.

IF I WAS DOWN ON MY KNEES BEGGING YOU PLEASE, WHAT GOOD WOULD IT DO?
IT WOULD JUST BE HARDER TO LEAVE, I KNOW.
BE STRONG, TURN AWAY.

STAY ISOLATED IN THIS CHARADE FOR FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS.
YOU’RE ALWAYS ON YOUR STAGE PUTTING ON PARADE THOSE MISTAKES YOU MADE THAT GOT YOU DEAD TO RIGHT.

IF I WAS DOWN ON MY KNEES BEGGING YOU PLEASE, WHAT GOOD WOULD IT DO?
IT WOULD JUST BE HARDER TO LEAVE I KNOW, BE STRONG, TURN AWAY, TURN AWAY.

BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES HONEY.
THE AIR IS THICK WITH BLOOD AND MONEY.
EMOTION SLIPPED THRU THE CRACKS, SURELY GOT YOU FEELING FUNNY.

TURN AWAY, TURN AWAY.
YOU GOT YOUR CALLING TODAY.

HEART ACHE RAIN

HEARTACHE RAIN, FAILING DOWN ON ME AGAIN.
HEARTACHE RAIN, RUSHING RIGHT THRU MY VEINS.
I BIT INTO THE HEART OF THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT.
IT DOESN’T MATTER DOES IT?

HEARTACHE RAIN RUSHING RIGHT THRU MY VEINS.
I BIT INTO THE HEART OF THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT.
I FELL RIGHT THRU AND CAME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
WHAT WAS THAT LINE I HEARD SOMEBODY SING?
“THE THRILL IS GONE” BUT IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER DOESN’T MATTER DOES IT.

I BIT INTO THE HEART OF THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT.
I FELL RIGHT THRU AND CAME OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE.
WHAT WAS THAT LINE I HEARD SOMEBODY SING?
“THE THRILL IS GONE ALL THE WAY AWAY FROM ME” YEAH

WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE AND WHERE I COULD HAVE GONE BUT YOU THAT I JUST ABANDONED, ANYTHING THAT MEANT ANYTHING TO ME.
OH NO DID I JUST ADMIT THAT.

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT, FOR ME TO STACK THE DECK?
BEEN ROAD HARD AND PUT AWAY WET’A.

HEARTACHE RAIN FALLING DOWN ON ME AGAIN.
HEARTACHE RAIN FALLING DOWN ON ME AGAIN.
HEARTACHE RAIN FALLING DOWN ON ME AGAIN.
HEARTACHE RAIN FALLING DOWN, FALLING DOWN ON ME AGAIN.

JUDAS HANGIN AROUND

SEVEN DAYS LEFT IN SOLITUDE YOU READ MY MIND.
TASTE YOUR TONGUE IF YOU WANT ME TO, SEVERAL TIMES.
STEPPING OUT ON THE FIRING LINE, WATCH ME NOW.
TWIST THAT KNIFE WITH SOME FORCE.
I’M AN INNOCENT MAN.

WHAT TIME IT WAS, THAT’S YOUR BEST GUESS.
THAT’S A LOT MORE THAN I’M EVER GOING TO CONFESS.
I SAID IT WAS BALLS TO THE WALL.
THAT’S THE MOST YOU’RE GOING TO GET.
DO YOU REMEMBER PRIVACY? THAT LOST CONCEPT.

YOU KNOW I’LL MAKE UP SOME SILLY RHYME AND SING IT OVER YOUR SHOULDER.
I THINK ITS WAY PAST TIME FOR YOU TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES.
I CAN HOLD MY OWN WHEN THE PRESSURES ON.
I DON’T NEED NO...

JUDAS HANGIN AROUND SEAL IT WITH A KISS.
NUMBERED DAYS SEAL YOUR FATE, CAN YOU COME TO GRIPS?
JUDAS HANGIN AROUND.
WORST OF ALL, HE STARTED MOVING UP TOWN.
HEY DON’T I KNOW YOU?

ACETYLENE BURNING HOT IN HEART OF WAR.
THERE’S A GENIE IN A BOTTLE HIDING JUST BEHIND THE DOOR.
ANOTHER FACE IN THE CROWD LOOKING REALLY BOARD.
WALK WITH GRACE IN THE FACE OF A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD.

YOU KNOW I’LL MAKE UP SOME SILLY RHYME AND SING IT OVER YOUR SHOULDER.
I THINK ITS WAY PAST TIME FOR YOU TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES.
I CAN HOLD MY OWN WHEN THE PRESSURES ON.
I DON’T NEED NO...

JUDAS HANGIN AROUND SEAL IT WITH A KISS.
NUMBERED DAYS SEAL YOUR FATE, CAN YOU COME TO GRIPS?
JUDAS HANGIN AROUND.
WORST OF ALL, HE STARTED MOVING UP TOWN.
HEY DON’T I KNOW YOU?

WHAT A CRASH IN THAT HOLLOW BEAM, SHRUG IT OFF.
THOSE PHOTOGRAPHS IN THOSE MAGAZINES THAT SPEAK IN TONGUES.
DON’T YOU TRY TO HIDE, DON’T YOU TRY TO RUN.
DON’T YOU EVER KNEEL IN FRONT OF ANYONE.
SO YOU STARTED COMING OFF OF BEING UNSCREWED, YOUR FONDEST MEMORIES ARE ALL THE RAGE BUT NOW THEY ARE COMING UNGLUED.
DRINK THE WINE FROM THE VALLEY IN THE ALLEY OF FOOL.
START A CRAZE IN THE MAZE, THEN YOUR NECKS INSIDE THE NOOSE AND THERE’S...

JUDAS HANGIN AROUND SEAL IT WITH A KISS.
NUMBERED DAYS SEAL YOUR FATE, CAN YOU COME TO GRIPS?
JUDAS HANGIN AROUND ME.
WORST OF ALL, HE STARTED MOVING UP TOWN.
HEY DON’T I KNOW YOU?
JUDAS HANGIN AROUND, HE’S NO PACIFIST.
HEY DON’T I KNOW YOU?
JUDAS HANGIN AROUND UNDERNEATH YOUR SKIN.
BOY DON’T I KNOW YOU?

ONE WHO KNOWS

NEED THE RIGHT KIND OF LOVER, I MEAN THE KIND THAT’S TOUGH TO FIND.
IF YOU’VE GOT THE CONVICTION, SELL IT TO ME BABY.
TURN THE KEY IN THE IGNITION.
THAT PRETTY BOY IN THE DOORWAY, HE AIN’T FOR YOU IN NO WAY.
YOU ASK HIM TO COME; HE’LL BE ALREADY GONE.
BET IT ALL.
DON’T YOU SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU BABY.

GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS.
WON’T STEAL YOUR HEART OF GOLD.
GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS HOW IT GOES.
GET YOU ONE KNOWS.

STUD WILL KICK IN A STALL, WHEN HE’S ALL-NASTY AND ALL.
PUT A KISS ON YOUR FACE, JUST TO SEE HOW YOU TASTE.
I KIND OF LIKE THIS FRICTION.
HERE’S A BIT OF NON-FICTION.
IF HE DON’T COME WHEN YOU CALL, YOU’RE DOWN FOR A FALL.
BET IT ALL DON’T YOU SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU BABY.
GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS.
WON’T STEAL YOUR HEART OF GOLD.
GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS HOW IT GOES.
GET YOU ONE KNOWS

WALKS THRU THE DOOR, THERE’S A SPOT ON THE FLOOR WHERE YOU LIE.
KISS ON YOUR LIPS BUT HIS HANDS ON HIPS THEY ARE TIED.
THE BOY’S THICK AS A BRICK GIVES YOU THE SHORT END OF THE STICK AND HE’S GONE.
HE DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL, DOES IT ALL WRONG.

HE SETS YOU UP, JUST TO KNOCK YOU DOWN.
IF HE’S GOING TO TEASE YOU BABY WHY DO WANT HIM AROUND?

GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS.
WON’T STEAL YOUR HEART OF GOLD.
GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS HOW IT GOES.
GET YOU ONE KNOWS.
GETCHA, GETCHA ONE WHO KNOWS.
GETCHA, GETCHA ONE WHO KNOWS.
GETCHA, GETCHA ONE WHO KNOWS HOW IT GOES.
GET YOU ONE WHO KNOWS

ANGEL

STEPPING OUT INTO THE GREAT UNKNOWN.
IT TOOK A LOT OUT OF YOU, LEAVING THAT COMFORT ZONE.
NOW YOU’RE STANDING OUT IN FRONT OF YOUR SUFFERING AND THE PAST, HAD IT ALL GONE BAD?
WHILE YOU WERE OUT REACHING FOR ALL THE WRONG THINGS, YOU DIDN’T COUNT ON IT BUT IT JUST KIND OF DARKENED EVERYTHING.
NOW YOU’RE LOSING GRIP OF THAT SLIPPERY RAIL, IT’S A BORROWED DAY.

SORRY, BUT THAT’S LIFE.
HANG TOUGH, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
EVERYBODY FIGHTS THEIR FEAR IN THE DARK.
YOU’RE A ONE-WING ANGEL.

WIDE EYES OPEN YOUR SEEING ALL YOU CAN.
YOU DON’T WANT MUCH, OH COME ON BABY, YOU WANT EVERYTHING.
ARE THINGS TO FAR, ARE THINGS TO NEAR, HAS IT ALL GONE BAD?
SO YOU’RE THE INNOCENT BYSTANDER, YOU KNOW IT’S NOT THAT WAY.
WHY DON’T YOU DRINK FROM THE CUP AND LET’S SEE WHAT YOU CAN REALLY TASTE?
YOU DRINK UP QUICK THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE.
IT’S A BORROWED DAY.

SORRY, BUT THAT’S LIFE.
HANG TOUGH, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
EVERYBODY FIGHTS THEIR FEAR IN THE DARK.
YOU’RE A ONE-WING ANGEL.

IT JUST KIND OF CAME OUT OF NOWHERE, THAT KIND OF BACKWARDS FEELING THAT WAS HANGING IN THE AIR.
WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE BEING ANYWHERE, IT’S ALL GONE BAD.
I WALKED FOR A WHILE DOWN ON A SIDEWAYS STREET.
DEEP DOWN INSIDE I FELT SO INCOMPLETE.
I SAW LITTLE SISTER JUMPING OFF THE EDGE OF FEAR, I SAID “HOLD ON YOU BABY DOLL” SHE SAID…

SORRY, BUT THAT’S LIFE.
HANG TOUGH, IT’S ALL RIGHT.
EVERYBODY FIGHTS THEIR FEAR IN THE DARK.
YOU’RE A ONE-WING ANGEL

MUST HAVE BEEN

MUST HAVE BEEN WORTHLESS, MUST HAVE BEEN HATED.
MUST HAVE BEEN DROWNING IN A WORLD, DARK AND DEGRADED.
MUST HAVE BEEN FIGHTING, MUST HAVE KILLING.
MUST HAVE LYING, CHEATING AND STEALING.
MUST HAVE BEEN WILLING.
THERE’S A LOT THAT YOU DON’T KNOW, THAT YOU DON’T WANNA KNOW.

MUST HAVE BEEN WHISPERS, MUST HAVE SHOUTING.
MUST HAVE BEEN SECRETS IN THE DARK THAT YOU MUST HAVE BEEN HIDING.
MUST HAVE BEEN THIRSTY, MUST HAVE BEEN ACHING.
MUST HAVE BEEN STARVING FOR THE LOVE THAT YOU MUST HAVE BEEN FAKING.
THERE’S A LOT THAT YOU DON’T KNOW, THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW.

MUST HAVE BEEN RUDE, MUST HAVE EMPTY.
MUST HAVE BEEN AMUSED.
YOU MUST HAVE BEEN GIFTED, MUST HAVE BEEN CRUDE.
MUST HAVE BEEN ABUSED.

MUST HAVE WORRIED, MUST HAVE BEEN UN-GRATEFUL.
MUST HAVE BEEN SURROUNDED BY DISTRACTION.
MUST HAVE BEEN UN-FAITHFUL.
MUST HAVE DELUGED, MUST HAVE DAMAGED.
MUST HAVE BEEN CAST INTO THIS WORLD, MUST HAVE BEEN ABANDONED.
THERE’S A LOT THAT YOU DON’T KNOW, THAT YOU JUST DON’T WANNA KNOW.

42ND STREET, YOUR FACE AND THE TWILIGHT.
THAT’S ALL I CAN REMEMBER JOE, ALL RIGHT?

CANDY FROM STRANGERS

FOG ROLLS IN, THE BAR STINKS OF GIN.
BETTY SITS DOWN AND HER FROWN, FROWN FALLS TO THE GROUND.
THERE AIN’T NOTHING LIKE THIS PLACE BACK IN THE RAT RACE, WHERE SHE TOOK CANDY FROM STRANGERS.
OUT THE DOOR SHE GOES, WHERE SHE STOPS AIN’T NOBODY KNOWS.
SHE’S OUT SELLING CANDY TO STRANGERS.

I SAW A GIRL THERE, I SAW A BOY THERE TO.
I SAW A WHITE HORSE RIDE DOWN IN A PLASTIC PACKAGE AND IT CONQUERED THE GROUND.
THE WHOLE CITY FELL DOWN ON ITS KNEES AND PRAYED, AND WENT TO AN EARLY GRAVE.
THEY HAD TAKEN CANDY FROM STRANGERS.

THE MOON IS REALLY BRIGHT, YOU’RE SKINS ALL PASTY WHITE.
THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT ARE OUT IN NUMBERS.
YELLOW GREEN AND BLUE, PURPLE AND BLACKENED TO.
DON’T YOU TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS.

JOHNNY WAS A DANCER

STARS WERE OUT, THE MONEY FLOWED.
IT WAS A SEASON IN HELL.
THE NIGHT POURED DOWN ON HIM LIKE A KNIFE, BUT IT WAS ALL VERY WELL.
SUBTLE DISGUISES AND SOCIALITES, HE MASTER THEM WELL.
ALL FULL OF NERVE AS HE’S FEET THE CURVE.
THERE WAS SOMEONE GONNA DIE AT THE BELVEDERE HOTEL.

AND HE SMILED AS HE HELD UP HIS HAND, HIS HEART COLD AS ICE.
IT WAS JUST PART OF THE PLAN.
JOHNNY WAS A DANCER.

DEBONAIR, STRIKINGLY HANDSOME.
HE COULD GLIDE THRU A ROOM.
HIRED BY THE WIFE OF SOME RICH YOUNG BANKER, OR SOME ARABIAN OIL TYCOON.
HE SPOKE IN LIES, MURDER WAS IN HIS EYES.
HE CAST A SPELL ON A ROOM.
HE PLAYED HIS PART LIKE SOME HOLLYWOOD HEARTTHROB, LIVING LARGE AT THE BOTTOM OF A GLAMOROUS CESSPOOL.

AND HE SMILED AS HE HELD UP HIS HAND, HIS HEART COLD AS ICE.
IT WAS JUST PART OF THE PLAN.
JOHNNY WAS A DANCER.

IT’S HIS CROSS TO BEAR.
WHAT HIDES IN THE SHADOWS AND THE REFLECTIONS IN THE MIRROR?
LIKE A DEVIL ON THE RUN, NEVER TRUSTING ANYONE.
THE END OF DAYS WOULD SOON BE HERE.
JOHNNY WAS A DANCER.

SLIPPERY ROPES, SHATTERED HOPES IN A MAZE FULL OF LIES.
LIVES ERASED TRUTH DEBASED, THERE’S A FIRE IN THE SKY.
FLIGHTS TO BOSTON, FLIGHTS TO RENO.
FLIGHTS TO ROME A SAN TROPEZ.
HE FOUND SOLITUDE ON THE AUTOBAHN IN ROUTE TO RENDEZVOUS WITH THE WIFE OF A WIDOWED BILLIONAIRE.

AND SHE SMILED AS SHE HELD UP HER HAND.
HER HEART WAS COLD AS ICE; HE WAS JUST PART OF HER PLAN.
IT WAS A CLASSIC DOUBLE CROSS.
BETRAYED, HE DIED DOWN ON HIS KNEES.
FELL BY THE SWORD, BLIND LOVE AND THE GREED.
JOHNNY WAS A DANCER.

JOHNNY WAS A DANCER, JOHNNY WAS A DANCER.
YOU GOT HIS NUMBER BUT THERE’S NO ANSWER.

HOLDING ON BY A THREAD

THE BASTARDS ARE FEELING GOOD.
FROM BOSTON TO HOLLYWOOD.
LEADING ME ON AND LAYING ME DOWN.
MY FEET NEVER HIT THE GROUND.
A SOLID FADE AWAY.
ALL THAT MILITANT FAN FARE AT THE END OF THE HIGHWAY.
WHEN I LOOKED UP, I SHOULD HAVE LOOKED DOWN.
I THOUGHT IT WAS SOLID GROUND.

I’M HOLDING ON BY A THREAD.
MONSTERS AND PARASITES.
RENTING SPACE IN MY HEAD.

I LOVE YOU MY BEST FRIEND.
YOU BROKE MY HEART AGAIN.
BUT I DID THE TIME, I SWEATED IT OUT.
YOUR INTENTIONS I HAVE NO DOUBT, NEVER MEANT TO DO ME ANY HARM.
STILL THE SPIKES HAMMERED IN MY ARMS’.
YOUR MEMORY SURROUNDS ME EVEN NOW.
BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYHOW.

I’M HOLDING ON BY A THREAD.
MONSTERS AND PARASITES.
RENTING SPACE IN MY HEAD.

I WANT A WAY TO HIDE MYSELF.
I WANT A WAY TO LOVE YOU BABY.
I’VE SPENT ALL THIS TIME ALONE.
HOLDING ON BY A THREAD.
MONSTERS AND PARASITES.
RENTING SPACE IN MY HEAD.
HOLDING ON BY A THREAD.
MONSTERS AND PARASITES.
RENTING SPACE IN MY HEAD.
IF I SCREAM, I’LL WAKE THE DEAD.
HOLDING ON BY A THREAD, HOLDING ON BY A THREAD.
IT’S LIKE A DAY THAT JUST NEVER ENDS.

COMIN’ DOWN ON ME

READY TO ROLL THE DICE?
IT WILL COME WITH QUITE A PRICE.
THOUGHTS COME OVER ME, BRING ME TO MY KNEES.

I KNOW IT NOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ME.
I KNOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ON ME.

MISTY WATER COLORED RAINBOWS.
THE DARKNESS IN THE SHADOWS.
FALL DOWN, THE SILENCE SCREAMS.
ECHO YOUR DARKEST FANTASY.

I KNOW IT NOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ME.
I KNOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ON ME.

SO MANY HEARTS HAVE COME AND GONE.
SOME BOUGHT, SOME BORROWED.
TOO MANY STOLEN BY SORROW.
MAKE YOUR PLANS, BUT THEY BE HOLLOW.
NO ONE AMONG US IS GUARANTEED TOMORROW.

LIVING IN THE PAST, IT’S OVER NOW AT LAST.
WITH YOUR CONSCIENCE SACRIFICED, YOU’LL NEVER GUESS THE PRICE.

I KNOW IT NOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ME.
I KNOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ON ME.
NO, THIS AIN’T THE WAY I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.
I KNOW IT NOW, IT’S COMIN DOWN ME.

HOLIDAY

HANGING DOWN ON NOWHERE STREET.
YOU’RE ALL FULL OF EMPTY AND THE PEOPLE THAT YOU MEET.
SLIP THEIR HANDS, UP YOUR BACK, THEIR SELLING DELUSION.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE? YOU’LL GET IT FAST.

EVERYTHING THAT YOU THOUGHT WAS TRUE, AND EVERYONE IS DISAPPEARING ON YOU.
YOU SINK THIS, BUT YOU FLOAT THAT.
YOU SEARCH AROUND FOR A RABBIT IN THE HAT.

BUT HEY, YEAH HERE’S TO YOUR DESTRUCTION.
YEAH HEY, I REVEL IN YOUR CORRUPTION.
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY.

YOU’RE WALKING NOW ON SHAKY GROUND.
YOU FEEL THE FEAR WHEN THERE IS NO ONE ELSE AROUND.
YOU HEAR THE SOUND OF CLOSING DOORS.
EVEN THAT DON’T AFFECT YOU ANYMORE.

BUT HEY, YEAH HERE’S TO YOUR DESTRUCTION.
YEAH HEY, I REVEL AT YOUR CORRUPTION.
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY.

JUST A HARD LUCK CASE, FALLING DOWN AGAIN.
ALL THE WASTED WORDS WASTED DAYS.
AIN’T NO NEED FOR ME TO SAY I TOLD YOU SO.
ITS EASY COME, EASY GO.
EASY COME EASY GO.

MY REGARDS TO ALL YOUR ILLS, YOUR SEVEN LIVES ARE ALL USED UP YOU MUST BE THRILLED.
THE SUCKER PUNCHED, OH NOT THAT.
HEY I LIKE YOUR COAT MADE FROM THE RABBIT IN THE HAT.

BUT HEY, YEAH HERE’S TO YOUR DESTRUCTION.
YEAH HEY, I REVEL IN YOUR CORRUPTION.
YEAH HEY, HERE’S TO YOUR DESTRUCTION.
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY, YEAH, YEAH HEY...
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY, YEAH, YEAH HEY...
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY, YEAH, YEAH HEY...
IT’S LIKE A HOLIDAY, YEAH, YEAH HEY.
