 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Garbage built on the sonic landscapes of My Bloody Valentine, Curve, and Sonic Youth, adding a distinct sense of accessible pop songcraft. Garbage was the brainchild of producers Butch Vig, Duke Erikson, and Steve Marker. Initially, Garbage was an informal jam session between the three producers held in Marker's basement, but they eventually recruited vocalist Shirley Manson, who had previously sang with Angelfish and Goodbye Mr. MacKenzie. Vig is a native of Viroqua, WI, who learned to play piano as a child and drums as a teenager. He attended the University of Wisconsin briefly before pursuing a career in music instead. The first band he joined after leaving college was Spooner, who he played drums with. Also in Spooner was Erikson, who sang and played guitar with the band. Marker was a native of New York who moved to Wisconsin to attend college. He became a fan of Spooner and began recording their songs. Vig left Spooner shortly afterwards, but he kept in touch with the band. After a few years, Spooner became Firetown and Vig played drums in the new outfit. Firetown broke up in the late '80s, without achieving much success. Prior to the formation of Firetown, Vig and Marker bought an eight-track cassette recorder together and set up a makeshift studio in a local warehouse. This studio was dubbed Smart Studios and Vig recorded numerous local punk and alternative bands at the warehouse. By the late '80s, Smart had become one of the hippest recording studios in America. Many records released on Touch & Go, Sub Pop, and Twin/Tone, among other indie labels, were made at Smart. Vig and Smart broke into the big time in 1991, after he produced Nirvana's Nevermind. Nevermind elevated Butch Vig to the status of a superstar producer and for the next two years, he produced numerous American alternative superstars, including Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, and L7.

Shortly after Vig became a star, he and Marker began playing together, eventually asking Erikson to join them. Hence, Garbage was officially formed in 1993, after Erikson joined the duo. After a year of playing, they hired Shirley Manson after seeing Angelfish on MTV. Manson began her musical career at an early age, joining Goodbye Mr. MacKenzie as a teenager; she played keyboards and sang backing vocals in the band. For the next few years, she toured with the band before leaving to form Angelfish, whom she led through an eponymous 1994 album. Garbage recorded their debut album in late 1994 and early 1995. Their eponymous first album appeared in the fall of 1995 on Almo Sounds. After receiving support from radio and MTV, the album began to climb the charts toward the end of 1995, when the second single, "Queer," received heavy airplay. By the summer of 1996, Garbage had gone gold in the United States, and shortly afterward it achieved platinum status, as "Only Happy When It Rains" and "Stupid Girl" became radio hits. After a brief break, Garbage began work on their second album in the summer of 1997. The record, entitled Version 2.0, was released in May the following year, preceded by the single "Push It." Four years later, they issued a sophisticated third album, Beautiful Garbage, and the first single "Androgyny" became a moderate radio hit. Bleed Like Me followed in 2005.

Garbage

Supervixen

Come down to my house
Stick a stone in your mouth
You can always pull out
If you like it too much

Make a whole new religion:
A falling star that you cannot live without
And I'll feed your obsession
There'll be nothing but this thing that you will never doubt

A hit is hard to resist
And I never miss
I can take you out
With just a flick of my wrist

Make a whole new religion
A falling star that you cannot live without
And I'll feed your obsession
There is nothing but this thing that you will never doubt
This thing you'll never doubt

And I'll feed your obsession:
The falling star that you cannot live without
I will be your religion
This thing you'll never doubt
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

Bow down to me, bow down to me


Now I want it too much
Now I want it to stop
Now I want it like a falling star that fell over me


Bow down to me, bow down to me
Bow down to me, bow down to me
Bow down to me

*** Thanx a lot to Atli who corrected this one ***

 Queer

Hey boy, take a look at me
Let me dirty up your mind
I'll strip away your hard veneer
And see what I can find

The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
The lamest of the lame
The numbest of the dumb
I hate to see you here
You choke behind a smile
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

This is what he pays me for
I'll show you how it's done
You learn to love the pain you feel
Like father like son

The queerest of the queer
Hide inside your head
The blindest of the blind
The deadest of the dead
You're hungry cause you starve
While holding back the tears
Choking on your smile
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

I know what's good for you
You can touch me if you want
I know you're dying to
You can touch me if you want
I know what's good for you
You can touch me if you want
But you can't stop

The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
The lamest of the lame
The numbest of the dumb
I hate to see you here
You choke behind a smile
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer
The strangest of the strange
The coldest of the cool
You're nothing special here
A fake behind the fear
The queerest of the queer

I know what's good for you
I know you're dying to
I know what's good for you
I bet you're dying to
You can touch me if you want
You can touch me if you want
You can touch me
You can touch me
But you can't stop


Only happy when it rains

I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when it's complicated
And though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains

You know I love it when the news is bad
And why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn't accidentally tell you that
I'm only happy when it rains

You'll get the message by the time I'm through
When I complain about me and you
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me, pour your misery down
Pour your misery down

You can keep me company
As long as you don't care

I'm only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession
I'm riding high upon a deep depression
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me ...


As heaven is wide

 Nothing that you say will release you
Nothing that you pray would forgive you
Nothing's what your words mean to me
Something that you did will destroy me
Something that you said will stay with me
Long after you're dead and gone

If flesh could crawl
My skin would fall
From off my bones
And run away from here

As far from God
As heaven is wide
As far from God
As angels can fly

If holy is as holy does
This house will burn straight down to hell
Take it's conscience with it
As it falls

Nothing said could change the fact
My trust was blind
You broke the pact
If God's my witness, God must be blind

If flesh could crawl
My skin would fall
From off my bones
And run away from here

As far from God
As heaven is wide
As far from God
As angels can fly

I wish, I wish
I wish, I wish

Take it back, I dare you take it back
No you can't? You should have thought of that
What's inside a man
That goes so wrong

Choke on guilt that's far too good for you
Say one word I'll laugh and bury you
And leave you in the place
Where you left me

If flesh could crawl
My skin would fall
From off my bones
And run away from here

As far from God
As heaven is wide
As far from God
As angels can fly

I wish I could fly
As angels can fly

I wish, I wish

Not my idea

I bit my tongue and stood in line
With not much to believe in
I bought into what I was sold
And ended up with nothing

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea

You thought that I would never see
What was meant for you was meant for me
I was distracted at the time
Forget about yours now what about mine

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea

You thought I was a little girl
You thought I was a little mouse
You thought you'd take me by surprise
Now I'm here burning down your house

This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea of a good time
This is not my idea
 

A stroke of luck

Hanging by threads of palest silver
I could have stayed that way forever
Bad blood and ghosts wrapped tight around me
Nothing could ever seem to touch me

I lose what I love most
Did you know I was lost until you found me

A stroke of luck or a gift from God
The hand of fate or devil's claws
From below or saints above
You came to me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
It's falling down and
All around me falling

You say that you'll be there to catch me
Or will you only try to trap me
These are the rules I make
Our chains were meant to break
You'll never change me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
You're falling down and
All around me falling

Stroke of luck or a gift from God
Hand of fate or devil's claws
From below or saints above
You come to me now

Don't ask me why
Don't even try

A stroke of luck or a gift from God
The hand of fate or devil's claws
From below or saints above
You came to me

Here comes the cold again
I feel it closing in
It's falling down and
All around me falling

Falling, falling
Falling, falling
Falling, falling

 
Vow

I can't use what I can't abuse
And I can't stop when it comes to you

You burned me out but I'm back at your door
Like Joan of Arc coming back for more

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I cam to shut you up
I came to drag you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

You burn and burn to get under my skin
You've gone too far now I won't give in
You crucified me but I'm back in your bed
Like Jesus Christ coming from the dead

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to knock you up
I came to cut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to rip you up
I came to shut you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I nearly died
I nearly died
I nearly died

I came to cut you up
I came to knock you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
I came to shut you up
I came to suck you down
I came around to tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
Tear your little world apart
And break your soul apart

I can't stop when it comes to you
I can't stop when it comes to you
When it comes to you
When it comes to you

Stupid girl

You pretend you're high
You pretend you're bored
You pretend you're anything
Just to be adored
And what you need
Is what you get

Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in faith
Don't believe in anything
That you can't break

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted

What drives you on What drives you on
Can drive you mad Can drive you mad
A million lies to sell yourself
Is all you ever had

Don't believe in love
Don't believe in hate
Don't believe in anything
That you can't waste

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it

Don't believe in fear
Don't believe in pain
Don't believe in anyone
That you can't tame

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can't believe you fake it
Can't believe you fake it

You stupid girl

Dog new tricks

I wish I had not woke up today
Everyone mistakes the things you say
Take the simple truth and
Twist it all around
Make it sound important
Make it seem profound

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless

Everyone I know has gone away
Died or left or just forgot to stay
Sometimes took for granted
Sometimes turned away
Sometimes didn't say what
I meant to say

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless

Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn

I never would have pegged you
For what you have become
Everyone lies
Everyone cheats
Not like you've done

Dog new tricks
Nothing you learn will stick Nothing will stick
Dog new tricks
You make me feel so worthless Nothing will stick

Dog new tricks Nothing will stick
Nothing you learn will stick Nothing will stick
Dog new tricks Nothing will stick
You make me feel so worthless Nothing will stick

Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn
Nothing you learn

 My lover's box

My lover's charms
Are in a box
Beneath my bed
And piece by piece
I'll cherish them
Until the end

Send me an angel to love
I need to feel a little piece of heaven
Send me an angel to love
I'm afraid I'll never get to heaven

They burn my hands
Scar my face
And blind my eyes
I'll steal your breath
And throw away
What I despise

Send me an angel to love
I need to feel a little piece of heaven
Send me an angel to love
I'm afraid I'll never get to heaven

Between these walls
And darkened halls
I've done my time
If I should die
Before I wake
Then you'll know why

Send me an angel to love
I need to feel a little piece of heaven
Send me an angel to love
I'm afraid I'll never get to heaven, Piece by piece

Send me an angel to love, Piece by piece
I need to feel a little piece of heaven, Piece by piece
Send me an angel to love, Piece by piece
I'm afraid I'll never get to heaven, Piece by piece

Piece by piece
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel
Piece by piece, Send me an angel

Fix me now

Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day

Bury me above the clouds
All the way from here
Take away the things I need
Take away my fear

Hide me in a hollow sound
Happy evermore
Everything I had to give
Gave out long before

Fix me now I wish you would, fix me now
Bring me back to life, fix me now
Kiss me blind somebody should, fix me now
From hollow into light

Crashing silent broken down
Falling into night
Who gave up an who gave in
I'll go without a fight

Cut me down or cut me dead
Cut me in or out
Kiss me blind time after time
Take away my doubt

Fix me now I wish you would
Fix me now I wish you would, fix me now
Bring me back to life, fix me now
Kiss me blind somebody should
Kiss me blind somebody should, fix me now
From hollow into light

Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day

Nowhere only down from here
Pick me off the floor
Take away the things I dream
One time one place one more

Fix me now I wish you would
Fix me now somebody should, fix me now
Bring me back to life, fix me now
Kiss me blind somebody should
Fix me now somebody should, fix me now
From hollow into

Fix me now I wish you would
Fix me now somebody should, fix me now
Bring me back to life, fix me now
Kiss me blind somebody should
Fix me now somebody should, fix me now
From hollow into light

Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day
Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day
Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day
Things don't have to be this way
Catch me on a better day

Temptation Waits

I'll tell you something
I am a wolf but
I like to wear sheep's clothing

I am a bonfire
I am a vampire
I'm waiting for my moment

You come on like a drug (Temptation waits)
I just can't get enough (Here's to your fate)
I'm like an addict coming at you for a little more (Don't say it's over)
And there's so much at stake (Temptation waits)
I can't afford to waste (I heard you say)
I never needed anybody like this before (Don't say it's over)

I'll tell you something
I am a demon
Some say my biggest weakness
I have my reasons
Call it my defense
Be careful what you're wishing

You come on like a drug (Temptation waits)
I just can't get enough (Here's to your fate)
I'm like an addict coming at you for a little more (Don't say it's over)
And there's so much at stake (Temptation waits)
I can't afford to waste (I heard you say)
I never needed anybody like this before (Don't say it's over)

You are a secret
I need possession
I like to keep you guessing

You come on like a drug (Temptation waits)
I just can't get enough (Here's to your fate)
I'm like an addict coming at you for a little more (Don't say it's over)
And there's so much at stake (Temptation waits)
I can't afford to waste (I heard you say)
I never needed anybody like this before (Don't say it's over)

When I'm not sure what I'm living for
(when I'm not sure who I am)
When I'm not sure what I'm looking for
(when I'm not sure who I am)
When I'm not sure what I'm living for
(when I'm not sure who I am)
When I'm not sure what I'm looking for

When I'm not sure what I'm living for
When I'm not sure what I'm looking for
When I'm not sure what I'm living for


I Think I'm paranoid

You can look, but you can't touch
I don't think I like you much
Heaven knows what a girl can do
Heaven knows what you've got to prove

I think I'm paranoid
And complicated
I think I'm paranoid
Manipulated

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Bend me
Break me
Breaking down is easy
All I want is you

I fall down just to give you a thrill
Prop me up with another pill
If I should fail, if I should fold
I nailed my faith to the sticking pole

I think I'm paranoid
Manipulated
I think I'm paranoid
Too complicated

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
All I want is you

Maim me, tame me, you can never change me
Love me, like me, come ahead and fight me
Please me, tease me, go ahead and leave me

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby it's alright

Bend me
Break me
Anyway you need me
As long as I want you baby it's alright

When I Grow Up

La la-la, la la la la la la...

Cut my tongue out
I've been caught out
Like a giant juggernaut

Happy hours
Golden showers
On a cruise to freak you out

We could fly a
Helicopter
Nothing left to talk about

Entertain you
Celebrate you
I'll be back to frame you

When I grow up
I'll be stable
When I grow up
I'll turn the tables

Trying hard to
Fit among you
Floating out to wonderland

Unprotected
God I'm pregnant
Damn the consequences

When I grow up
I'll be stable
When I grow up
I'll turn the tables

La la-la, la la la la la la...

Blood and blisters
On my fingers
Chaos rules when we're apart

Watch my temper
I go mental
I'll try to be gentle

When I grow up
I'll be stable
When I grow up
I'll turn the tables

When I grow up
When I grow up
When I grow up
I'll turn the tables

La la-la, la la la la la la...

Don't take offense
Better make amends
Rip it all to shreds
And let it go

Don't take offense
Better make amends
Rip it all to shreds
And let it go

Rip it all to shreds and let it go
Rip it all to shreds and let it go
Rip it all to shreds and let it go

Medication

I don't need an education
I learnt all I need from you
They've got me on some medication
My point of balance was askew
It keeps my temperature from rising
My blood is pumping through my veins

Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
Nobody gives a damn about me
Or anybody else

I wear myself out in the morning
You're asleep when I get home
Please don't call me self defending
You know it cuts me to the bone
And it's really not surprising
I hold a force I can't contain

Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
Nobody gives a damn about me
Or anybody else

And still you call me co-dependent
Somehow you lay the blame on me
And still you call me co-dependent
Somehow you lay the blame on me

Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
I've got to make a point these days
To extricate myself

Somebody get me out of here
I'm tearing at myself
Nobody gives a damn about me
Or anybody else

And still you call me co-dependent
Somehow you lay the blame on me
And still you call me co-dependent

Somehow you lay the blame on me

Somehow you lay the blame on me
Somehow you lay the blame on me

Special

I'm living without you
I know all about you
I have run you down into the ground
Spread disease about you over town

I used to adore you
I couldn't control you
There was nothing that I wouldn't do
To keep myself around and close to you

Do you have an opinion
A mind of your own
I thought you were special
I thought you should know
But I've run out of patience
I couldn't care less

I...
I...

Do you have an opinion
A mind of your own
I thought you were special
I thought you should know

I used to amuse you
I knew that I'd lose you
Now you're here and begging for a chance
But there's no way in hell I'd take you back

Do you have an opinion
A mind of your own
I thought you were special
I thought you should know
But I've run out of patience
I've run out of comments
I'm tired of the violence
I couldn't care less

I'm looking for a new X4

You were the talk of the town X4

I thought you were special X4

Hammering In My Head

I'm stressed but you're freestyle
I'm overworked but I'm undersexed
I must be made of concrete
I sign my name across your chest

Give out the same old answers
I trot them out for the relatives
Company tried and tested
I use the ones that I love the best

Like an animal you're moving over me
Like an animal you're moving over me

When did I get perverted
I can't remember your name
I'm growing introverted
You touch my hand and it's not the same

This was so unexpected
I never thought I'd get caught
Play boomerang with your deamons
Shoot to kill and you'll pop them off
Bang! Bang!

Like an animal you're moving over me
Like an animal you're moving over me

You should be sleeping my lover
Tell me what you're dreaming of

(X4)

I knew you were mine for the taking
I knew you were mine for the taking
I knew you were mine for the taking
When I walked in the room

I knew you were mine for the taking
I knew you were mine for the taking
Your eyes light up
When I walk in the room

A hammering in my head don't stop
From the bullet train
From Tokyo to Los Angeles
I'm leaving you behind
A flash in the pan
A storm in a teacup
A needle in a haystack
A prize for the winning
A dead for the raising
A catch for the chasing
A jewel for the choosing
A man for the making in this blistering heat

Sweat it all out
Sweat it all out
With your bedroom eyes and your baby pouts
Sweat it all out
In our electric storms and our shifting sands
Our candy jars and our sticky hands

Sweat it all out X6

Don't forget what I wrote you then
And don't forget what I told you then
And don't forget I that meant to win
And don't forget your ventolin
So a hammering in my head don't stop
In the bullet train from Tokyo to Los Angeles


Push It

I was angry when I met you
I think I'm angry still
We can try to talk it over
If you say you'll help me out

Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
No need to fight
Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
We'll be alright

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it (make the beats go harder)
Push it (make the beats go harder)

I'm sorry that I hurt you
Please don't ask me why
I want to see you happy
I want to see you shine

Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
Don't be uptight
Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
We'll stay up all night

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it (make the beats go harder)
Push it (make the beats go harder)

Come on push it you can do it
Come on prove it nothing to it
Come on use it let's get through it
Come on push it you can do it

Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
Don't be uptight
Don't worry baby (don't worry baby)
We'll stay up all night

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it (make the beats go harder)
Push it (make the beats go harder)

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it (make the beats go harder)
Push it (make the beats go harder)

This is the noise that keeps me awake
My head explodes and my body aches
Push it (make the beats go harder)
Push it (make the beats go harder)

Don't worry baby
We'll be alright
Don't worry baby
We'll be alright

Push it X5


The Trick Is To Keep Breathing

She's not the kind of girl
Who likes to tell the world
About the way she feels about herself
She takes a little time
In making up her mind
She doesn't want to fight against the tide

Lately
I'm not the only one
I say
Never trust anyone

Always the one who has to drag her down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around

Can't bear to face the truth
So sick he cannot move
And when it hurts he takes it out on you

Lately
I'm not the only one
I say
Never trust anyone

Always the one who has to drag her down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around

The trick is to keep breathing
The trick is to keep breathing

She knows the human heart
And how to read the stars
Now everything's about to fall apart

I won't be the one who's going to let you down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around ?

I won't be the one who's going to let you down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around ?

The trick is to keep breathing X7

Dumb

I never claimed to be your saviour
I said I had a dirty mouth
Stop analysing my behaviour
If you're too dumb to work it out

I've got to keep myself together
You know I hate to disappoint
A masochistic lamb to slaughter
Maybe you miss the point

I'm feeling small
I'm climbing the walls
I don't let it show

Now that you know what you know
I bet you wish you could let it go
You'll never come sucking your thumb
Better off dumb

Maybe I could write a letter
to help me with my self-esteem
You should get to know me better
No one's ever what they seem

I'm feeling small
Climbing the walls
I don't let it show

Now that you know what you know
I bet you wish you could let it go
You'll never come sucking your thumb
Better off dumb

You still don't know what you think of me
You still don't know what you mean to me
You still don't know what to think of me
You still don't know what you think of me

Now that you know what you know
I bet you wish you could let it go
You'll never come sucking your thumb
Better off dumb

Now that you know what you know
You're going to reap what you sow
Nothing will come sucking your thumb
Better off dumb

You still don't know what you think of me
You still don't know what you mean to me
You still don't know what to think of me

You still don't know what you think of me X5

You still don't know what I think of you
You still don't know what you think of me

Sleep Together

I got you crawling up a mountain
Hanging round my neck
I got you twisted round my finger
Crawling round my legs

The emptiness
The craziness
Satisfy this hungriness

Darling
How would it feel

If we sleep together
Will you like me better
If we come together
We'd go down forever
If we sleep together
Will I like you better
If we come together
Prove it now or never

Make me a pretty person
Make me feel like I belong
Make me hard and make me happy
Make me beautiful

The emptiness
The craziness
Satisfy this hungriness

Darling
How would it feel

If we sleep together
Will you like me better
If we come together
We'd go down forever
If we sleep together
Will I like you better
If we come together
Prove it now or never

If we sleep together
Nothing satisfies me baby
If we sleep together
I'll wear something pretty baby
If we sleep together
Give me what I crave now baby
If we sleep together
Save the rest for later baby
If we sleep together
You will drive me crazy baby
If we sleep together
I save it all for you my baby
If we sleep together
If we sleep together

Wicked ways

I tried hard to mend my wicked ways
Acted like a lunatic for years
Lord knows I try to be good
I'd keep my promises if only I could
You count your blessings that I can't rely on you

And I tried X4

Clutch your pictures of the pope
Pray to god for love and hope
Bring the virgin home for luck
Bolt the door down, keep it shut

I've done things I never thought I'd do
Sure it helps to lose myself in you
A little time and I'll be all right
C'mon sugar let's go out tonight
Forgive your trespasses
And all that we've been through

And I tried X8

Clutch your pictures of the pope
Pray to god for love and hope
Bring the virgin home for luck
Bolt the door down, keep it shut

That sinking feeling
When you are leaving
All I believed in
Walks out my door

I tried hard to mend my wicked ways
The damage's done
There's nothing left to save

And I tried X7

Clutch your pictures of the pope
( Just like I told you )
Pray to god for love and hope
( Just like I warned you )
Bring the virgin home for luck
( Just like I told you )
Bolt the door down, keep it shut
( Just like I warned you )

You Look So Fine

You look so fine
I want to break your heart
And give you mine
You're taking me over

It's so insane
You've got me tethered and chained
I hear your name
And I'm falling over

I'm not like all the other girls
I can't take it like the other girls
I won't share it like the other girls
That you used to know

You look so fine

Knocked down
Cried out
Been down just to find out
I'm through living for you

I'm open wide
I want to take you home
We're wasting time
You're the only one for me

You look so fine
I'm like the desert tonight
Leave her behind
If you want to show me

I'm not like all the other girls
I won't take it like the other girls
I won't fake it like the other girls
That you used to know

You're taking me over
Over and over
I'm falling over
Over and over

Drown in me one more time
Hide inside me tonight
Do what you want to do
Just pretend happy end
Let me know let it show)
Ending with letting go X3
Let's pretend happy end X4

 

Beautiful Garbage

Shut your mouth

Welcome
We love you
We hate you
We love you
We want you
We need you
We wish we were like you
They say you're a saint
You're a whore
You're a sinner
That he had you
He made you
He can't live without you

Would you confess if we asked
That you nurture the urge
To declare that it’s time
To settle down
With a man of your own
You want a baby
A family
A piece of security

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

What's your opinion of the dire situation
In our land here
Our guest here
Of course you'll be nice here
How do you feel about God and religion
Are you good people
Bad people
Guess it doesn't matter people

Your place
My place
Make her bring that famous face
You got some
You want some
You wanna let me get you some
We know your music but of course we'd never buy it
It’s too fake man
Right man!
(We don't give a fucking damn)

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

I hear you say it
Play it smart girl
Win the game love
Give’em what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
What have you been reading you smart girl?
Win the game love
Give’em what they want
What they want to see and you could be a big star
You could go far
Make a landmark
Make a shit load

And the world spins by
With everybody moaning
Pissing, bitching and everyone is shitting
On their friends
On their love
On their oaths
On their honour
On their graves
Out their mouths
And their words say nothing

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it

Shut your mouth
Try not to panic
Just shut your mouth
If you can do it
Just shut your mouth

I waited to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Just shut your mouth
I wanted to say something
Oh shut your mouth
I wanted to be something
Just shut your mouth

Androgyny

When everything is going wrong
And you can't see the point in going on
Well nothing in life is set in stone
There's nothing that can't be turned around

Nobody wants to feel alone 
And everybody wants to love someone 
Out of the tree go pick a plum 
Why can't we all just get along 

Boys 
Boys in the girls' room 
Girls
Girls in the men's room 
You free your mind in your androgyny 
Boys 
Boys in the parlor 
Girls 
They're getting harder 
I'll free your mind and your androgyny 

No sweeter a taste that you could find 
Than fruit hanging ripe upon the vine 
There's never been an oyster so divine 
A river deep that never runs dry 

What you need X11

The birds and the bees they hum along 
Like treasures that twinkle in the sun 
Get on board and have some fun 
Take what you need to turn you on 

Boys 
Boys in the girls' room 
Girls 
Girls in the men's room 
You free your mind in your androgyny 
Boys 
Boys in the parlor 
Girls 
They're getting harder 
I'll free your mind 
I'll free your mind 
I'll free your mind 
I'll free your 

Boys 
Behind closed doors and under stars 
Girls 
It doesn't matter where you are 
Boys 
Collecting jewels that catch your eye
Girls
Don't let a soulmate pass you by 

Boys in the girls' room 
Girls in the men's room 
You free your mind in your androgyny 
Boys in the parlor 
They're getting harder 
I'll free your mind 
I'll free your mind 

Boys in the girls' room 
Girls in the men's room 
You free your mind in your androgyny 
Boys in the parlor 
They're getting harder 
I'll free your mind

I'll free your mind 
I'll free your 

Boys, girls

Can't Cry These Tears

I just don't care anymore 
I've reached the end of the road 
I just don't care anymore 
Won't cry these tears anymore 

Can't find it in the bible 
Can't find it on TV
Can't find it in diamonds 
There's something inside me that just won't allow me to 
Can't find it in music 
Can't find it in my soul 
Can't find it in chocolate 
Oh babe I can't hide it 
I can't even find it in you 

I just don't care anymore 
I've reached the end of the road 
I just don't care anymore 
Won't cry these tears anymore 

There's no way she can kiss you the way that I do 
I heard that you miss me 
Oh you should be careful of who you keep talking to 
Long nights without you have taught me to be strong 
I've cut all my losses 
Think no more about it because I couldn't find it in you

I just don't care anymore 
I've reached the end of the road
I just don't care anymore 
Won't cry these tears anymore 

There was a time I thought I'd die 
If you should ever leave me high and dry 
And you don't want me any more 
It's time to settle the score 

I just don't care anymore 
I've reached the end of my tether
I've torn all your letters up
I just don't care anymore 
Won't cry these tears anymore 
I just don't care anymore 
I've reached the end of my rope
And it's time that I told you so 
I just don't care anymore 
Won't cry these tears anymore 

It's time to settle the score 

*** Thanx a lot to Meghan for this one ***

Till the day I die

I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die

You walked into the room
The sun hit my eyes
The force you struck me down caught me by surprise
You sprung the mojo and it worked like a charm
I felt invincible with you in my arms

I must confess it can feel good to feel pain
Like breaking waves or getting caught in the rain
Playing those games cause we had nothing to do
I was oblivious I was losing to you

I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die

Holy Jesus
Holy rock’n’roll
The more I gave to you the more you grew bored
And making love became the waging of war
No peace
No tenderness
No fun anymore

I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die
I will love you till the day that I die

I dreamt that I called out your name
You turned your face to me and started to say
Something so beautiful it hurt deep inside
So I will love you till the day that I die

Farewell
Farewell
I'm sure gonna leave you (I will love you till the day that I die)
Farewell
Farewell
I'm sure gonna leave you (I will love you till the day that I die)
Farewell
Farewell (I will love you till the day that I die)
I'm sure gonna leave you (I will love you till the day that I die)
Farewell
Farewell (I will love you till the day that I die)
I'm sure gonna leave you (I will love you till the day that I die)
Farewell
Farewell (I will love you till the day that I die)
I'm sure gonna leave you (I will love you till the day that I die)
Farewell
Farewell (I will love you till the day that I die)
I'm sure gonna leave you

Cup Of Coffee

You tell me you don't love me 
Over a cup of coffee 
And I just have to look away 
A million miles between us 
Planets crashing to dust 
I just let it fade away 

I'm walking empty streets 
Hoping we might meet
I see your car parked on the road 
The light on at your window 
I know for sure that you're home 
But I just have to pass on by 

So no, of course, we can't be friends 
Not while I'm still this obsessed 
I guess I always knew the score 
This is how our story ends 

I smoke your brand of cigarettes 
And pray that you might give me a call 
I lie around in bed all day just staring at the walls 
Hanging round bars at night wishing I had never been born 
And give myself to anyone who wants to take me home 

So no, of course, we can't be friends 
Not while I still feel like this 
I guess I always knew the score 
This is where our story ends 

You left behind some clothes 
My belly somersaults
When I pick them off the floor 
My friends all say they're worried 
I'm looking far too skinny 
I've stopped returning all their calls 

And no, of course, we can't be friends 
Not while I'm still so obsessed 
I want to ask where I went wrong 
But don't say anything at all 

It took a cup of coffee 
To prove that you don't love me 

*** Thanx a lot to Meghan & Robbin for this one ***

Silence Is Golden

If I am silent
Then I am not real
But if I speak up then
No one will hear
If I wear a mask there's
Somewhere to hide

Silence is golden
I have been broken
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

If I raise my voice
Will someone get hurt
And if I can't feel then
I won't get touched
If no truths are spoken
Then no lies can hide

Silence is golden
I have been broken
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

Silence is golden
Nobody gets in
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

Did you hear me speak
Do you understand
Did you hear my voice
Will you hold my hand
Do you understand me

Won't someone listen
Nobody gets in
My body's a temple
But nothing is simple

Silence is golden
I have been broken
Something was stolen
Safe in my own skin

Safe in my own skin
Won't someone listen
My body's a temple
But nothing is simple

My body's a temple
But nothing is simple
Something was stolen
I have been broken

I have been broken
Silence is golden
I have been broken
Safe in my own skin

Cherry Lips (go baby go!)

She gave you everything she had
But she was young and dumb
She'd just turned twenty one
She didn't care to hang around
So when the shit came down
Why she was nowhere to be found
This life can turn a good girl bad
She was the sweetest thing
That you had ever seen

You're so such a delicate boy
In the hysterical realm
Of an emotional landslide
In physical terms

With your cherry lips and golden curls
You could make grown men gasp
When you'd go walking past them
In your hot pants and high heels
They could not believe
That such a body was for real
It seemed like rainbows would appear
Whenever you came near the clouds would disappear
Because you looked just like a girl
Your baby blues would flash
And suddenly a spell was cast

You're so such a delicate boy
In the hysterical realm
Of an emotional landslide
In physical terms

You hold a candle in your heart
You shine the light on hidden parts
You make the whole world wanna dance
You bought yourself a second chance

Go baby go go
We're right behind you
Go baby go go
Yeah, we're looking at you
Go baby go go
Oh ,we're right behind you
Go baby go baby
Yeah, we're right behind you
Go baby go baby
Oh, we're right behind you
Go baby go baby
Yeah, we're looking at you
Go baby go baby
Oh, we're right behind you
Go baby go baby
Yeah, we're looking at you

You hold a candle in your heart
Go baby go go
You shine the light on hidden parts
Go baby go go
You make the whole world wanna dance
Go baby go go
You bought yourself a second chance
Go baby go baby go
Delicate boy
Go baby go baby go
In the hysterical realm
Go baby go baby go
Of an emotional landslide
Go baby go baby go
In physical terms
Go baby go go
Go

Yeah, we're looking at you
Go baby go go
Oh, we're right behind you

Breaking Up The Girl

In a modern culture 
My friend you must be careful 
They've a million ways to kill you 

In this dangerous world 
There’s an art to growing old 
Taking chances
Magic happens

One mistake's all it takes
And your life has come undone
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl
It's a drag
I know it's hard
But you're tearing her apart
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl

I am afraid that there's much to be afraid of
Here today and gone tomorrow
Don't end up in the gutter
Just like the one before
You're just the same
Such a loser

One mistake's all it takes 
And your life has come undone 
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl 
It's a drag 
I know it's hard 
But you're tearing her apart 
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl 

You've got to let her go because you're breaking up the girl 
The girl 

One mistake's all it takes 
And your life has come undone 
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl 
It's a drag 
I know it's hard 
But you're tearing her apart 
Walk away cause you're breaking up the girl 

You're breaking up the girl 
You're breaking up the girl 
The girl 

*** Thanx a lot to Meghan for this one ***

Drive You Home

It's funny how
Even now
You still support me after all of the things that I've done
You're so good to me
Waiting patiently
And isn't it sad that you still have to ask if I care 

I never said I was perfect 
But I can take you away

Walk on shells tonight 
Can't do right tonight 
And you can't say a word
Cause I leap down your throat
So uptight am I

I never said I was perfect 
But I can drive you home 

I got down on myself
Working too hard
Driving myself to death
Trying to beat out the faults in my head
What a mess I've made
Sure we all make mistakes
But they see me so large
That they think I'm immune to the pain 

Walk on shells tonight 
Can't do right tonight 
And you can't say a word
Cause I leap down your throat
So uptight am I

I'm praying for a miracle 
But I won't hold my breath 

I never said I was perfect 
But can you take me home 

*** Thanx a lot to Meghan for this one ***

Parade

Get it right
Get it right now
Get it right
Do it good
Get it right now
Kaboom! 
Get it right
Get it right now
Get it right
Do it good

Oh let’s bomb the factory
That makes all the wannabes
Let’s burst all the bubbles
That brainwash the masses

As far as I can tell
It doesn't matter who you are
If you can believe there's something worth fighting for
The color of an eye
The glory of a sudden view
The baby in your arms
The smile he always shoots at you

Believing in nothing
Makes life so boring
So let’s pray for something
To feel good in the morning

As far as I can tell
It doesn't matter who you are
If you can believe there's something worth fighting for
The color of an eye
The glory of a sudden view
The baby in your arms
The smile he always shoots at you

Kaboom! 
Get it right
Get it right now
Get it right
Do it good
Get it right now
Kaboom!

Kaboom!, Kaboom! 

Oh doctor
We're dying
There's no use in crying
So live for tomorrow
And do what you have to

As far as I can tell
It doesn't matter who you are
If you can believe there's something worth fighting for
The color of an eye
The glory of a sudden view
The baby in your arms
The smile he always shoots at you

Oh let's pray for something
To feel good in the morning
In the morning
As far as I can tell (Get it right now)
In the morning
As far as I can tell (Get it right now)
In the morning
As far as I can tell (Get it right now)
As far as I can tell (Get it right now)
As far as I can tell (Get it right now)

Nobody loves you 

Watching the days slip by so fast
Knowing our fate has long been cast
Working our fingers to the bone
Cause nobody loves you when you're gone, gone, gone, gone

Coughing up feeling just for you
To find something real to hold on to
But there is a hole inside my heart
Where all of my love comes pouring out

You know you'll always be my man
But grab yourself sweetness where you can
Cause sooner or later we're gonna die
Left to the dogs under the sky

I cracked a piece of broken glass
I cracked a piece of broken glass

Coughing up feeling just for you
To find something real to hold on to
But there is a hole inside my heart
Where waves of my love come tumbling out
You say that all the good is gone
That I have forgotten who I am
Free as a bird
Wild as the wind
But somehow I cannot let you in

Untouchable 

This is nothing new to me
It takes more than what you got
To frighten me
I'm not scared of you
There’s nothing you can do
Or take from me

Untouchable
You think you're untouchable
You know
No one’s untouchable

You're bound to lose the game
There's no one else to blame
You play so safe
And you're not risking enough
You are doomed to be undone
I swear I'll be the one
To bring you down

It’s all your fault
Cause you got caught

Untouchable
You think you're untouchable
You know
No one’s untouchable

It must be nice
To be so sure
And never feel insecure
It must feel good to believe
You're always right
And you're never wrong

You've got something to say
You say it to my face
And be a man about it
You got a problem with me
Don't go behind my back
Just like a baby

Untouchable (pride comes before)
You think you're untouchable (you take a fall)
You know (you'd best beware)
No one’s untouchable (a woman scorned)
Untouchable (pride comes before)
You think you're untouchable (you take a fall)
You know (you'd best beware)
No one’s untouchable (a woman scorned)
No one's untouchable
You think you're untouchable
You know, no one's untouchable
No one's untouchable
No one's untouchable
No one's untouchable
No one's untouchable

So Like A Rose

Baby thinks he's dying 
Lost inside his bedroom 
Mommy won't stop crying 
And daddy's always working 

There's no going back 
There's no going back 
There's no going back 
On this one 

Baby wakes up with the sun 
While everyone is sleeping 
He thinks he's going crazy 
But this could be the big one 

There's no going back 
There's no going back 
There's no going back 

Sleeping with ghosts 
It's such a lonely experience 
The stars are out tonight 
Only they can hear you breathing 

You're so like a rose 
You're so like a rose 
You're so like a rose 
I wish you could stay here 

*** Thanx a lot to Meghan for this one ***

Bleed like me

Bad boyfriend

I've got a fever
Come check it and see
There's something burning and rolling in me
We may not last but we'll have fun till it ends
Cmon baby be my bad boyfriend

I wanna hear you call out my name
I wanna see you burn up in flames
Keep you on ice so I can show all my friends
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

So ripe so sweet come suck it and see
But watch out daddy I sting like a bee
I know some tricks I swear will give you the bends
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

My fever's rising you ran into luck
Say what sugar
You wanna get what
I wanna give you one hundred and ten
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

It's wild the way you tease me
It's wild the way you free me
It's wild the way you reach me
Wrapped me up in your wire from the start

You've got the women waiting in line
I'm not asking you to make up your mind
I can make you happy at least now and then
I've got something special for my bad boyfriend

If you can't love me honey go on just pretend
Oh I've saved something special for the very end
If you can't love me honey go on just pretend
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend
Oh c'mon baby be my bad boyfriend
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend
Ah c'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

Run baby run

Love can be so strange
Don't it amaze you
Every time you give yourself away
It comes back to haunt you
Love's an elusive charm and it can be painful
To understand this crazy world
But you're not gonna crack
No you're never gonna crack

Run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
To late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run

Life can be so cruel
Don't it astound you
When nothing seems too certain or safe
Let it burn through you

You can keep it pure on the inside
And you know what you believe to be right
So you're not gonna crack
No you're never gonna crack

Run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
To late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run

Find out who you are before you regret it
'Cause life is so short there's no time to waste it

So run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
To late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run
Run my baby run my baby run
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run

Right between the eyes

Don't care what they have to say
Why you listening to them anyway
Why do you have to give them what they want
They love to watch you as you fall apart

Stick it to them like a phoenix rise
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes

Seek to destroy cause they're scared of you
That's why they try to make a fool of you
They're so jealous of my pretty star
Cause you've got soul inside your shattered heart

Stick it to them like a phoenix rise
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes

And you've been waiting all your life
To fly high into somebody else
And it's true it's a cruel, cruel world
Life's a bitch and then you die my love

Don't care what they have to say
You shouldn't listen to them anyway

Stick it to them like a phoenix rise
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes

Right between the eyes
Right between the eyes
Right between the eyes

People like to build you up
Then they'll stab you in the back like that
You know it breaks my heart
Can't see you going out like that

Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love

Why Do You Love Me

I'm no Barbie doll
I'm not your baby girl
So I've done ugly things
And I have made mistakes
And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
I am rotten to my core if they're to be believed


So what if I'm no baby bird hanging upon your every word
Nothing ever smells of roses that rides out of mud

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy
 
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me

You're not some little boy
Why you acting so surprised
You're sick of all the rules
Well I'm sick of all your lies
Now I've held back a wealth of shit
I think I'm gonna choke
I'm standing in the shadows
With the words stuck in my throat
Does it really come as a surprise
When I tell you I don't feel good
That nothing ever came from nothing man
Oh man ain't that the truth

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy
 
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me

I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it
I do it again

I think you're sleeping with a friend of mine
I have no proof
But I think that I'm right

And you've still got the most beautiful face
It just makes me sad
Most of the time

I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it again
I get back up and I do it
I do it again
I do it again
I do it again
I do it again

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy
 
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me

Why do you love me
Why do you love me

*** Thanx a lot to Claire who corrected a mistake ***

Bleed like me

Avalanche is sullen and too thin
She starves herself to rid herself of sin
And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin
And she says
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Come on baby can you bleed like me

Chrissie's all dressed up and acting coy
Painted like a brand new christmas toy
He's trying to figure out if he's a girl or he's a boy
And he says
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Oh come on baby can you bleed like me

Doodle takes dad's scissors to her skin
And when she does relief comes setting in
While she hides the scars she's making underneath her pretty clothes
She sings
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Come on baby can you bleed like me

Therapy is speedie's brand new drug
Dancing with the devil's past has never been too fun
It's better off than trying to take a bullet from a gun
And she cries
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Oh come on baby can you bleed like me

JT gets all fucked up in some karaoke bar
After two drinks he's a loser after three drinks he's a star
Getting all nostalgic as he sings 'I will survive'

Hey baby can you bleed like me
Oh come on baby can you bleed like me
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Oh come on baby can you bleed like me

You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars

And try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
And try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Just try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend

You should see my scars
You should see my scars

*** Thanx a lot to Curtis & Travis who corrected a mistake ***

Metal heart

I wish I had a metal heart
I could cross the line
I wish that I was half as good
As you think I am

But now that we know for sure they're telling lies when they say
No one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round

I wish I was as big as you
You'd have to tell the truth
I'd be nothing you could hurt
Nothing you could use

Now that we know for sure they're telling lies when they say
No one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round
The world is round

I want to be dependable
I want to be courageous and good
I want to be faithful so that I can be heroic and true
I want to be a friend you can rely on you can lean on and trust
I want to understand so I can forgive and be willing to love

I wish I wasn't flesh and blood
I would not be scared
Of bullets built with me in mind
For then I could be saved

My sweet lord take care of me
For I think I'm done
Kiss my mother on her cheek
Lay my burden down
Lay my burden down

But now that we know for sure they're telling lies when they say
No one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round
The world is round
The world is round
The world is round

Sex is not the enemy

No evolution
Sometimes it depresses me
The same old same
Oh we keep repeating history
The institution curses curiosity
It's our conviction
Sex is not the enemy

A revolution is the solution
A revolution is the solution

I won't feel guilty
No matter what they're telling me
I won't feel dirty and buy into their misery
I won't be shamed 'cause I believe that love is free
It fuels the heart and sex is not my enemy

A revolution is the solution
A revolution is the solution

True love is like gold
There's not enough to go around
But then there's God
And doesn't God love everyone
Give me a choice
Give me a chance to turn the key
And find my voice
Sex is not the enemy

A revolution is the solution
A revolution is the solution
Sex is not the enemy
A revolution...

It's all over but the crying

Everything you think you know baby is wrong
And everything you think you had baby is gone
Certain things turn ugly when you think too hard
And nagging little thoughts change into things you can't turn off
Everything you think you know baby is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Do you really think I'm made of stone baby, come on
That we only love the things we own, baby you're wrong
Certain things just happen when you make no plans
And love can really tear you up and it can break you down
Everything you think you know baby is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Baby we're done

If I could I would
I'd change everything
'Cause I can't forget you
Though you don't believe me
Now I can't walk back
I can't leave behind
Where does it go
All the light that we had

Everything you think you know baby is wrong
And everything you think you had baby is gone

Baby we're done (Baby we're done)
Baby we're done (Baby we're done)
Baby we're done (Baby we're done)
Baby we're done (Baby we're done)
Oh baby we're done
(Baby we're done)
Baby we're done (Baby we're done)
Oh baby we're done

The boys wanna fight

The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night

They know best how they can mess with us
Nursing an opinion's getting dangerous
And in a world where good's not good enough
Let's get loaded and kick up a fuss

The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night

Is there anybody else
Anybody else
Is there anybody else
Anybody else

What a mess we've made, it's ridiculous
The whole wide world's a stage of complete chaos
It's gets so funny that we get confused
We don't know where to turn 'cause we've all been used

The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night

Is there anybody else
Anybody else
Is there anybody else
Anybody else

Let's get loaded

(oh let's be selfish)

Let's get wasted

(and lose our senses)

Let's get shit faced

(so we can fake it)

Let's get stupid

(just entertain us)

Let's get wicked

(desensitize us)

Let's get toasted

(don't educate us)

Let's get hammered

(yeah paralyze us)

Let's forget it

(don't count on all )


The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night

Sick sick sick sick
Of doing nothing
I'm sick sick sick
Of saying nothing
Sick sick sick sick
Of doing nothing
I'm sick sick sick
Of saying nothing
So let's get loaded

The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys


Why don't you come over

It's been a crazy time for us
Of pushing all our limits
Snapping necks and breaking balls
Now you'd have done the same
But you were baking biscuits
While I went bent the law
Sacrificing something
As you counted all my flaws

Oh why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over

So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
And walk in my shoes

You wanna live freely
Don't wanna die
You want it
You got it
You chase the high
You wanna be out there
You wanna race
You wanna take over
Just gotta play

Why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over

Why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
And walk in my shoes

I'm a good person
Don't wanna fight with no-one
But you piss me off
You keep pushing, pushing
You'd best step off the gas, man
All bets are off, fuck you
You taste like toxic poison
I wash my hands of you

Why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over

Why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
So why don't you come over
And walk in my shoes
Walk in my shoes

Why don't you come over
Why don't you come over
Why don't you come over
Why don't you come over

Why don't you come over
Why don't you come over
Why don't you come over
Why don't you

Happy home

In my happy home
I barely breathe
In my lovers arms
I find relief

And there's a sky that's changing
And a bird that sings
I never once in my wayward life
Was heading to run out

In my lovers arms I wait for morning
I beg my god to speak and tear me apart
I'd lay down my body I'd lay down my arms
I never once in my sweet short life meant anybody harm

In my happy home
I read the signs
In my lovers arms
I move in time
There's no more crying
And there's no more lies
I never once in my sweet short life
Was waiting for desire

And there's no more crying
And there's no more pain
I never thought for one second
I'd have nothing left but shame

In my happy home
I barely breathe
I never once in my wayward life
Was heading to run out

 

Not Your Kind of People

Automatic Systematic Habit

Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh men like you
Keep me up at night
You want your women at home
And your bed on the side
You've got a telephone girl that you carry around
In your jean back pocket with her very own sound
And you're so...

Sly about it, oh it comes automatic
Yeah, you're so good at it
A systematic habit
Sly about it, oh it comes automatic
Yeah, you're so good at it
A systematic habit

Knocked down, drag your name out all across the town

Big Bright World

We are difficult to understand
It was hard to make this simple plan work
Difficult, but that’s what made it burn

You’re a satellite around my heart
One million before the start
Indescribable, but that’s what makes it you

Shivers up and down my spine
Feet to the teeth
Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world
We rage against the dying
Rage against the dying light

You’re mysterious, you make no sense
I love you ’cause you’re innocent
You fell out through a hole inside the sun
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So magnify the best inside me
Build the parts that you can’t find me
The parts that won’t give out when things get hard

Shivers up and down my spine
Feet to the teeth
Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world

Round and around in the setting sun
Round and around in the setting sun
Round and around in the setting sun
Round and around and around and around and around

Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world
Inside this big, bright world
Rage against the dying
Rage against the dying light

I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you
I’m with you

Blood For Poppies

Oh lift the sun
I've been sitting here all night long
Rolling rock, over Buddha with the longhorn
Got a hole, rip a pocket off my uniform
With the black watch boys
Get your heads down

Duty calls, but it's way too late
I'm too far gone
Waiting for God, oh hell
With my pants down
Crack the stash
Then be quiet in the midday sun
I miss my dog, and I miss my freedom

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I hate the things I think about you
When I'm all alone
I know you're tough
But I've been gone,
For so long
Play the memories of you
Inside my head
So all these pictures of us,
Burn and radiate.
Watch the clouds, and I'm falling
Falling through the cracks
Head beats,
And my heart is pounding fast
Off the ground
Into the starry dark, into your arms
I'm falling...

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right

I pray my body's right
I've got to stay alive
I've gotta take a chance and keep on moving
Keep on moving...

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right

I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
They know I’m here just out of sight
I don't know why they are calling on the radio
It's by my side, and I know I’m right

Control

The world might end
the night might fall
Rain on down and cover us all
And drown us with the burdens of our sins
Maybe I’ll look you in the eye
Tell you, you don't wanna die
Maybe I’ll hold my breath and jump right in
Maybe I’ll hold my breath and jump right in

I never saw you coming from inside my little prison
Your autograph would really buy me time
If you think you are the reason
Give me something to believe in
It's always darkest right before the dawn
It's always darkest right before the dawn
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I confess I’ve lost control
I let my guard down
I let the truth out
Oh I confess I’ve lost control
I let my guard down
I let the truth out

The final celebration
A bad hallucination
Flip a coin and see which way I fall
The shark tail is singing
We love to watch him killing
And suffer through a never ending day
Suffer through a never ending day

I can feel I’ve lost control
I let my guard down
I let the truth out
Oh I can feel I’ve lost control
You let your guard down
You let the truth out

I was trapped like a prisoner in my skin
I was punished like an enemy for my sins
I was blind
I was caged
And I was tricked
And I was suffocating
I was suffocating

I can feel I’ve lost control
Oh I can feel we've lost control
I was suffocating.
I confess I’ve lost control
And I was suffocating
Oh I was suffocating
I can feel we've lost control
Feel my hunger
Feel my hunger

I was suffocating

Not Your Kind Of People

We are not your kind of people
You seem kind of phoney
Everything’s a lie

We are not your kind of people
Something in your makeup
Don't see eye to eye

We are not your kind of people
Don't want to be like you
Ever in our lives

We are not your kind of people
Find when you start talking
There's nothing but white noise

Run around trying to fit in
Wanting to be loved
It doesn't take much
For someone to shut you down
When you build a shell
Build an onion in your mind
You cant sit still
And you don't like hanging round the crowd
They don't understand
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You dropped by
As I was sleeping
You came by to see
The whole commotion
And when I woke
I started laughing
The jokes on me
For not believing

We are not your kind of people
Speak a different language
We see through your lies

We are not your kind of people
Won't be cast as demons
Creatures you despise

We are extraordinary people of people
We are extraordinary people of people
We are extraordinary people of people
We are extraordinary people of people

Felt

Felt
Sure you felt something
Felt sure
But it really was nothing
You felt
But you’re only guessing
They’re only feelings baby
They’re only feelings

Felt
I’d left you hanging
Felt sure
I’d stopped myself caring
You felt
That I’d stopped believing
They’re only feelings baby
They’re only feelings
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
What is real
Is real reason
What is real

I still get you
Do you still get me

Felt
My skin on your skin
Felt sure
Sensations like raining
You felt
No logical thinking
They’re only feelings baby
They’re only feelings

I Hate Love

Your words are pretty but I already know who you are
We knew you before you met me, long before we were part
Before you tricked me and laid on my bones
Before you kissed me and buried my hope
Before you stole my spirit
And load the show into the wall

Show your world
They lay all their dreams on you
They let you in and you start to believe yourself, as a miracle
On front, I was on you on front
Innocent and open as any lamb, and hoping for paradise
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I hate love
And I hate love
So I hate love
Yeah, I hate love

Love makes you desperate
And feeling a fool
Love makes you ruthless
And love makes you cruel
And love makes you crazy
With nothing but lies
Love promises nothing
And then your love dies

On front, I was on you on front
Innocent and open as any lamb
And hoping for paradise

I hate love
And I hate love
So I hate love
Yeah, I hate love

Hey it's me
Call me
Then your love dies
Here I am
Where are you
Then your love dies
Where are you
Then your love dies
Can you call me
Can you call me back

Sugar

Give me sugar
Give me, something sweet
I’ve spent a lifetime
Feelin’ incomplete
If I sound bitter
Or if I come too late
Please reconsider
I don’t need much on my plate
Just give me sugar

Don’t come close, please keep at a distance
Look but don’t touch till the light goes on
Silence in line and please wait at the window
Don’t touch the glass till the curtain calls

Wait, wait, don’t make me wait
Wait, wait, don’t make me wait
Just give me sugar

Give me sugar
Give me, something deep
Don’t make a habit
Of crawling on my knees
But this is different
Can’t you see I’m in control
This is the moment
Where all your dreams have flown
Just give me sugar

Don’t come close, please keep at a distance
Look but don’t touch till the light goes on
Silence in line and please wait at the window
Don’t touch the glass till the curtain calls
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Wait, wait, don’t make me wait
Wait, wait, don’t make me wait
Just give me sugar

To hook her on
Sugar to hook her on
Some sugar to hook her on
Sugar to hook her on

Oh won’t someone love me
Won’t someone love me
Won’t someone love me
Oh won’t someone love me
Like you
Like you
Like you
Like you
Someone like you

Battle In Me

Oh, look at you, an accident of drinking
What a mess, a train wreck of lipstick
What a joke, well, do you hear me laughing
Get out my face before I lose my patience

Oh me and you, let’s cut this party
Oh, little boy, it takes a lot to shake me
So shake it

It’s the battle in me
It’s the battle in you
It’s the battle in me
It’s the battle in you

It’s a bloody war of attrition
Let’s see which one of us is gonna last tonight
‘Cause I have all of my wits around me
And I’ll be damned if I’m done

We’ll rock the place right when the room stops spinning
Oh make it hard
I want something to happen
So make it happen

It’s the battle in me
It’s the battle in you
It’s the battle in me
It’s the battle in you

Let’s take a torch
To the past, to the future
Let’s make out
I won’t tell your girlfriend
See how it feels, with the passion burning
We’ll be damned when we’re done
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Shake it, shake it
Oh shake it up
Shake it, shake it
Oh shake it up
Shake it, shake it
Oh shake it up

‘Cause it’s the battle in you
It’s the battle in me
‘Cause it’s the battle in you
It’s the battle in me

Oh, shake it, shake it
Oh shake it up
Shake it, shake it
Oh shake it up
Shake it, shake it
Shake it off

Man On A Wire

I looked into the mirror
What did I see
There was a big black beast
Looking back at me

You looked into my eyes
What did you see
You saw a big black beast magnified me

Like a man on wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of a dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on wire

I was like a volcano
Just waiting to explode
But I have been resurrected, reborn
And I have been transformed
I was a green eyed monster
Could you tell I was afraid
I set myself down and shot my fear in the face
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Like a man on wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of a dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on wire
That’s right

Yeah, I see you sitting around
With your wristwatch and your white collared shirt
I see you hoping to watch me fail
You’re hoping to watch my fail
I sat myself down and shot my fear in the face
Like a man on wire

Like a man on wire
I set myself on fire
Destroyer of a dream
Trying to find a spark
Desperate for love
Like a man on wire

Beloved Freak

You’re not certain when you feel hurt
Get violent when you deal
With how the world drags you alone
You’re not alone
Nothing good was ever free
No one gets it, no one sees
So here you stand beloved freak
You’re not alone

Sometimes we get so tired and weak
We lose the sky beneath our feet
You’re not alone

Every comet throws an arc
And scars our vision cross the dark
When we’re gone we will remain
You’re not alone
People lie and people steal
They misinterpret how you feel
And so we doubt and we conceal
You’re not alone
Don’t worry for me
Just think of yourself, think of yourself
When we’re gone we will remain
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So here you stand beloved freak
The world is at your feet

This little light of mine
I’m going to let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
And so you stand beloved freak
The world is lying at your feet
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

What Girls Are Made Of

Tell me please what little girls are made of
Sugar and spice and all things nice
But we can bleed for a whole week straight
Every month and the pain doesn’t faze us
Do you really think we give a shit about anything you said
Or what you ever did
Say what you what but I’m not listening
Cause I’m not fucking about

You think you know what I can do
My virgin tongue, oh see how it fools you
Do you really think I give a shit about anything you said
Or what you ever did
Say what you what but I’m not listening
Cause I’m not fucking about
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Yeah you
Haven’t you heard
I let you off with murder
And I’ve been drinking again
It helps to blot you out
Cause if I stop to think I swear I’ll lose it

Watch me cutting every string
One by one
See me cut out all the rot
Bit by bit
Watch me as I push you back
Inch by inch
I push you back boy
Inch by inch

Yeah you
Haven’t you heard
I let you off with murder
And I’ve been drinking again
It helps to blot you out
Cause if I stop to think I swear I’ll lose it

Tell me please what little girls are made of

Bright Tonight

From the beginning we were always going to fail
We were the next thing that the world could not wait to tear down
Off balance in our own minds
Off balance in the ways we looked to everybody else
On and on all summer long we never stood a chance

Sky bright tonight
Live forever always bright tonight
Hey you
You be who you are
You be who you are forever
You be who you are
You my brightest star across the sky
You’re bright tonight

It was right now and then suddenly it’s gone
We were both wrong but here we are we’re right where we belong
Off balance in our own lives
Off balance in the ways we looked to everybody else
On and on all summer long we never stood a chance
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Sky bright tonight
Live forever always bright tonight
Hey you
You be who you are
You be who you are forever
You be who you are
You my brightest star across the sky
You’re bright tonight

Show Me

You could hear long before you could dream
You could walk
You could run long before you could sing
You could talk
Think about all the things you never say
And spit them out

And show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me who you are
Show me
Show me now

It’s not as easy as it seems
The world is big
The sea is deep

There is no rope
There is no line
We’re specs of dust up in the sky

There is no space
There is no time
There’s only you and what we leave behind
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Show me
Show me how
Show me
Show me who you are
Show me
Show me now
What we leave behind
What we leave behind

Show me what we leave behind

Strange Little Birds

Sometimes

Sometimes I'd rather take a beating
Sometimes I'd rather take a punch
I learn more when I am bleeding
You knock me down, but I get up

Sometimes I need to forgive you
Sometimes I want to destroy
Sometimes I know it was not your fault
But I blame you anyway
You copy you paste you lose
Sometimes I don't like to quarrel
Sometimes I feel too afraid
Sometimes I know I'm not meant to do it
I do it anyway

Sometimes I feel so jealous
Sometimes I feel insecure
Sometimes I feel like I vanished in thin air
Sometimes I feel I'm not here

Empty

I've been feeling so frustrated
I'll never be as great as I want to be
Everyone that I run into
The ones you always seem so into
What's wrong with me
They all seem to know exactly what it is they want
They pass me
They smile as they go
So I work at staying patient
Good things come to those that wait
Or so they say
You copy you paste you lose
I am so empty
You're all I'm thinking about
About
Oh oh about, about
Oh oh oh about, about
Oh oh oh about, about

I get tired of trying
Ideas die on the vine
And I feel like a fake
I lie awake believing that somehow I keep failing
I rail and I ache
At the monsters and the demons
I have wrestled with for eons
And I want to destroy

I am so empty
You're all I talk about
Oh oh about
You're all I talk about

Every day, every hour of the night
You're all I think about
Every day, every hour of the night
You're all I dream about
Every day, every hour of the night
You're all I think about

You're all I think about

I am so empty
I am so empty
I am so empty
You're all I'm thinking about
About, about
Oh oh oh about
I am so empty

Blackout

Keeping my thoughts under wraps tonight
Keeping my feelings to myself
And I'm already broken hearted
So let's get this party started

The darkness comes with you
With longing and desire
Your anger burns inside your eyes
They flash like burning coal

Get out your head, get out your head
Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
Fake it till you make it break
Make the world black out

All the hurt you nurse inside
You'd better cough it up
Beautiful like shards of glass
In your throat they'll cut you up
You copy you paste you lose
Get out your head, get out your head
Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
Fake it till you make it break
Make the world black out

That was such a wicked thing to say
That was such a spiteful thing to do
You smile as the words spew out your mouth
So I laugh in your face right back at you

There's no reward for men who weep
No medals given out
But better be the one who speaks
Than be the man who won't
(You and you and you and you)

Get out your head, get out your head
Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake
Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out
Fake it till you make it break
Make the world black out

Oh we all blackout
We all blackout
Get out your head, get out your head
We all blackout
Get out your head, get out your head
We all blackout

If I Lost You

There are times when I see you talking to other girls
I feel insecure
And every time I see you walking out
I wonder if you're coming back to me

You tell me I've got nothing to worry about
They've got nothing on me
You tell me I'm a good girl and you know it
Are you so strong or is the weakness in me

I've never had someone like you
Who makes me feel the way you do
Sometimes I believe that I might die
If I lost you
If I lost you
If I lost you
You copy you paste you lose
Fears formed so long ago
So stupid to hold on to them all
Not every man is made the same
So un-evolved to think that way

But I've never had someone like you
Who makes me feel the way you do
Sometimes I believe that I might die
If I lost you
If I lost you
If I lost you

I've never had someone like you
Who makes me feel the way you do
Sometimes I believe that I might die
If I lost you
If I lost you
If I lost you
If I lost you

Night Drive Loneliness

Lonely
Lonely

Got my high heels and my lipstick
My blue velvet dress in my closet
Got my phone on vibrate
All I do is wait

My night drive loneliness comes again and again
My night drive loneliness comes again and again
You copy you paste you lose
Of all the stupid things I've said
There's one thing I regret
In the moment that I said it, I wanted to kill it
I still feel sick about it

My night drive loneliness comes again and again
My night drive loneliness comes again and again

Lonely
Lonely

I'm so nervous
Like a cat on a hot tin roof
And I want to get wasted
Forget all about it
Like the blue dress in my closet

Over and over again
Over and over again
Over and over again
Over and over again

My night drive loneliness comes again and again
(My loneliness)
My night drive loneliness comes again and again
(My loneliness)
Loneliness
My night drive loneliness comes again and again
(My loneliness)
My night drive loneliness comes again and again
(My loneliness)

Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone
Loneliness
Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone
Loneliness
Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone
Loneliness
Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone
Loneliness
Alone, alone, alone, alone, alone

Even Though Our Love Is Doomed

I'm getting desperate
Desperate for a revolution
Some kind of spark
Some kind of connection
In these dangerous days
Come a little bit closer
I need to understand

Why we kill the things we love the most
Kill the things we love
Kill the things we love the most
You copy you paste you lose
Why we kill the things we love the most
Kill the things we love
Kill the things we love the most
But they don't burn like we do
They don't burn like we do

And even though our love is doomed
And even though we're all messed up
We're still waiting for tomorrow
We're still aching for tomorrow

And even though your love is cruel
And even though our stars are crossed
You're the only thing worth fighting for
You're the only thing worth dying for

Don't want to be dead to life
Don't want to be dulled to extinction
Don't want to be lost in dreams
Don't want to be caught sleepwalking

And maybe I should break the chain
Maybe I should break the connection
Such strange little birds
Devoured by our obsession

Can you love me for what I've become
Love me for what I said that I would not become
Can you love me for what I've become
Love me for what I said that I would not become
'Cause they don't burn like I do
They don't burn like I do

And even though your love is cruel
And even though our stars are crossed
We're still waiting for tomorrow
We're still aching for tomorrow

And even though our love is doomed
And even though we're all messed up
You're the only thing worth fighting for
You're the only thing worth dying for

And even though our love is doomed
Even though our love is doomed
Even though our love is doomed
Even though our love is doomed
Even though our love is doomed
Even though our love is doomed
You're the only thing worth fighting for
You're the only thing worth dying for

Magnetized

I'm not in love
I'm not in love
And there will be no future tense for us
I cannot lie
I know it isn't right to want you
Most of the time
I stop myself from trying to touch you
You copy you paste you lose
I'm magnetized
I'm magnetized
I'm magnetized
I'm magnetized by you

You bring your light
I'll bring the pain
You bring your joy
I'll bring my shame
I want to kiss the scar that rips your shoulder
Get so close that it hurts
Every time I feel us growing closer
You pull back

I'm magnetized
I'm magnetized (I'm magnetized by you)
I'm magnetized
I'm magnetized (I'm magnetized by you)
There's nothing I can do
It's all a fantasy

I would risk everything
Set fire to the house
Pack my bags and walk out
But would you want me to
If I was free

I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love

I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love
I'm not in love

I'm magnetized by you
I'm magnetized by you
I'm magnetized by you (Magnetized)
I'm magnetized by you (I'm magnetized)
I'm magnetized by you (I'm magnetized)
I'm magnetized by you (I'm magnetized by you)

There's nothing I can do
It's all a fantasy

We Never Tell

This is my time with you
I'm not giving it back
They could break our arms, but we will remain intact
You'd never had anyone make you feel so good
I can see it in your eyes when I look at you

It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
That I want you
I want you
I want you
I know you want me, too

We're on the outside always
Looking in
You don't trust humans
And I feel the same

It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
That I want you
I want you
I want you
I know you want me, too
You copy you paste you lose
Let's give them something to remember
Something to talk about
On their telephones
On their couch at home
Make me shake and make me tremble
We can be animals
A secret universe
A place to be us

This is my time with you
I'm not giving it back
They could break our arms
But we will remain intact

It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell

It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell
It's in our eyes, but we never tell

Let's give them something to remember
Something to talk about
Let's give them something to remember
Something to talk about

So We Can Stay Alive

Imagine this: we make things right
So beautiful, we cling tonight
To all our dreams, we pin them up
We'll lose our minds if we lose our hope
We swear to change, but we bottle it
Stick to our guns and all our sins
We bury fear, we drink to it
We might cheat death if we worship it

So we can stay alive
Our sex, our power, our drive
We lose ourselves inside
So we can feel alive

You're the one who should be on trial
For all your hate and your denial
Be careful what it is you break
Every broken thing can't be fixed
And all those fragile things we are
They find their voice, they find their power
They take a grip around your throat
They keep squeezing 'til your life runs out

So we can stay alive
Our sex, our power, our drive
We lose ourselves inside
So we can feel alive
You copy you paste you lose
Masochistic victim sadist
Victor vanquished valour sadness
Lust and love, our lies, our blindess

(We can feel alive)
All alone we fight the fear
By ourselves in every way
(We can feel alive)
All our lust, all our greed, all our hate
We're on our knees
(We can feel)
Hear us beg, hear us pray

We can stay alive
We can stay alive
We can stay alive
We can stay alive
We can stay alive
We can stay alive

Teaching Little Fingers To Play

I was young and naive
All I wanted to do was please, please, please
But things, they change
And I'm a big girl now

I'm all grown up
(I'm all grown up)
No one around to fix me now
(There's no one around)
I'm doing it my own way
(I'm doing it, I'm doing it)
I'm changing things up
Like I'm teaching little fingers to play

I wore myself out for you
Shiny and keen for you
But things, they change (they change and)
And I'm a big girl now (I'm a big girl)

I'm all grown up
(I'm all grown up)
No one around to fix me now
(There's no one around)
I'm doing it my own way
(I'm doing it, I'm doing it)
I'm changing things up
Like I'm teaching little fingers to play
You copy you paste you lose
Nothing ever stays the same
Youth and beauty don't remain
The wise, they say, "adapt or die"
If you don't grow, you'll calcify
But you're too scared to try

But things, they change (they change and)
And I'm a big girl now (I'm a big girl)

I'm all grown up
There's no one around to fix me now
I'm all grown up
There's no one around to fix me now
I'm doing it my own way
(I'm doing it, I'm doing it)
I'm doing it my own way
(I'm doing it, I'm doing it)
I'm doing it my own way
(I'm doing it, I'm doing it)
I'm changing things up
Like I'm teaching little fingers to play

Amends

You gave an inch, I took a mile
You lit a match, I set a fire
You know they say to make amends face to face

And though I know it's not my place
To tell you how to live your life
But to forget somebody's sins is divine
Is divine

There is nothing you could say
To cause more hurt or cause me shame
Than all the things that I have thought about myself

It's been so long and time has passed
We are both changed yet nothing has
When will you let me off the hook and let me pass
You copy you paste you lose
When the chains on the fence break
And free the insane
They can't wait to deliver bad news

It's what you do, don't make it right
Matter of fact, it's called revenge
Cut off your nose to spite your face
It's pretty cruel shutting me out

It's what you do, don't make it right
Matter of fact, it's called revenge
Cut off your nose to spite your face
It's pretty cruel shutting me out

I used no knives, I didn't lie
I didn't mess around or even try
When they were lined up round the block, I sat and watched

So it's a shame that we don't talk
I miss your face and life is short
Get off your cross 'cause long goodbyes come every time
Come every time

It's time to change your mind
It's time to change your mind
Don't you be too proud
It's time to change your mind

'Cause I don't know, don't know you
'Cause I don't know, don't know you
'Cause I don't know, don't know you
'Cause I don't know, don't know you
'Cause I don't know, don't know you

FWY

You left me black and blue bruises
You cheated on me with lots of girls
Always from behind, in public places
So you didn't have to look into their face

You said there was no one quite like me
Coming inside me felt like coming home
I was so naive, it made me feel like a queen
Such is the ego of the young

But fucking with you was always fun
Fucking with you was always fun

I want you to know I will always love you
I need you to know I forgive you
I want you to know that I was also to blame
I was never easy to live with back then
You copy you paste you lose
Fucking with you was always fun
Fucking with you was always fun

And if I could, I wouldn't leave
And I'd do the same again

Fucking with you was always fun
Fucking with you was always fun
Fucking with you was always fun
Fucking with you was always fun

NON ALBUMS TRACKS

#1 Crush

( Romeo & Juliet OST )

I would die for you
I would die for you
I've been dying just to feel you by my side
To know that you're mine

I will cry for you
I will cry for you
I will wash away your pain with all my tears
And drown your fear

I will pray for you
I will pray for you
I will sell my soul for something pure and true
Someone like you

See your face every place that I walk in
Hear your voice every time that I'm talking
You will believe in me
And I will never be ignored

I will burn for you
Feel pain for you
I will twist the knife and bleed my aching heart
And tear it apart

I will lie for you
Beg and steal for you
I will crawl on hands and knees until you see
You're just like me

Violate all the love that I'm missing
Throw away all the pain that I'm living
You will believe in me
And I can never be ignored

I would die for you
I would kill for you
I will steal for you
I'd do time for you
I will wait for you
I'd make room for you
I'd sink ships for you
To be close to you
To be part of you
Cause I believe in you
I believe in you
I would die for you

13 X forever

Thirteen times you, with my karma
And thirteen times I fucked up your dogma
You taught me to hate
You taught me to crawl

You raised your hand as you raised the bottle
You knock me down but it made me stronger
The harder you hit
The harder you fall

And this one is for my mother
What will I do without her
Don't look back
Don't even bother

And this one is for the father
Who loves his little daughter
Well here I am
Don't even bother

You can freak out about me
But you'd lose your mind without me
You thought you could see right through me
But it made no difference to me
Anyway, anyway

A free reign gave you ammunition
To play the game and, other women
And something just snapped
And cracked in my brain

A thirteen times I sucked up inside me
The different ways that you tried to harm me
You did it once
You'll do it again

And this one is for my sister
You dare to denigrate her
Don't look back
Don't even bother

And this one's for my lover
The one who had to suffer
Well here I am
Don't even bother

You can freak out about me
But you'd lose your mind without me
You thought you could see right through me
But it made no difference to me
Anyway, anyway, anyway, anyway

Thirteen times, one, thirteen times, two
Thirteen times, three, thirteen times, four
Thirteen times, five, thirteen times, six
Thirteen times, seven, thirteen times eight

*** Thanx a lot to Lou who corrected this one ***

Afterglow

Center on the wide horizon
Focus on the galaxy
Sweep away your expectations
And recognise your enemies

But here you're talking to yourself
You're stripping off for someone else
You've got to learn to love yourself
It's all that counts, there's little else

You're always looking for affection
And all it's possibilities
Your sense is searching for attention,
Emerging need of gravity

I think you think you're someone else
You've got to learn to save yourself
Before you find there's nothing left
But bitterness and hollowness
And afterglow
And afterglow

*** Thanx a lot to Lou who corrected this one ***

Alien sex fiend

You're an alien sex fiend X12

All The Good In This Life

(Songs For Tibet: Art Of Peace LP)

Once when I was a girl
I could've given you a ride for your money
Oh but how times have changed
Although you do look cute in those red cowboy boots
No, you don't mess around
But you're just a kid
You don't know what it takes

No one can stop you now
Anymore than they can tell the wind not to blow
Who's going to run you now
With the riders in the dirt back on astelin turf
I cant tell you what to do
You're free as a bird
Go do what you've got to do

Don't you worry, boy
Life will come and find you
You're going to blow their minds
Show them all a thing or two

Don't you worry, boy
Life will come and find you
You're going to blow their minds
Show them all a thing or two

All the good in this life
Wish for yourself
All the good in this life
Wish for yourself
All the good in this life
Wish for yourself
All the good in this life
Wish for yourself

April Tenth

It was April the tenth,
I remember it well
It was so cold that year
It was colder than hell

Things hadn't been good
For you for a while
'Cause I'd been on tour
I hadn't heard

And Ruth dropped in
With the letter you wrote
And I read it aloud
To prove that I could
And we were both laughing
'Cause we know how you are
We never thought
Your quitting was good

We thought that you knew you
But I guess that we don't

Are you heavenly or
Just like the past?
We called you "the black penny"
Remember that?

The sea is wide
The streets are long
There's blood in all our hands
With the catalyst gone

And only what's left to us
Is history built on dust
On sweat and on poet's words
Great nations and governments

[sweet?] Lies and victories,
Eager and keen to please
Those [junkies?] Are everywhere
With their thousand-yard stare

We all end up the same
Like little lambs to meet their end

*** Thanx a lot to Jake & Kagetenshi for this one ***

Badass

( Run baby run EP )

Alright, okay

It’s guys like you baby
That gives the a boys a bad name
Keep your hands where I can see them
Get the man out of me

Be my fancy boy
Come to my room
Glaring at my eyes
Turn around that door

Woop woop
Alright, okay

You have a world of your own
Ba ba da da da do
Such a ba ba da da da do
Ba ba da da da do

Be my fancy boy
Come to my room
Glaring at my eyes
Turn around that door

So head on home tonight honey
Just be glad we didn’t kill anybody
And I swear i’ll never tell anybody
You were always looking at yourself in my mirror

So be there a quarter but get out son (?)

Bop bop duh nuh...

We’ll be squealing like animals
When I’m on my knees
I’m desperate, and I hear you’re liking me

Be my fancy boy
Come to my room
Glaring at my eyes
Turn around that door

So head on home tonight honey
Just be glad we didn’t kill anybody
And I swear i’ll never tell anybody
You were always looking at yourself in my mirror

So be there a quarter but get out son (?)

Think you’re such a badass
Think you’re such a wrap
Think you’re such a rebel

*scatting*

Think you’re such a badass
Da da da da duh

Be my fancy boy
Come to my room
Glaring at my eyes
Turn around that door

Be my fancy boy
Come to my room
Glaring at my eyes
Turn around that door

I’m pure platinum
Got the disc at home
Na na na na fun ...

Because The Night

(Patti Smith cover / Garbage feat. Screaming Females / Live in Houston, TX, 2012)

Take me now, baby, here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
Desire is a hunger, it's the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now, try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand, come under cover
They can't hurt you now
Can't hurt you now
Can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt, when I'm alone
Love is a ring on the telephone
Love is an angel, disguised as lust
Here in our bed 'til the morning comes
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Come on now, try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand, as the sun descends
Can't hurt you now
Can't hurt you now
Can't hurt you now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle turns and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive the yearning burning
I believe it's time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Begging Bone

You're just like a dog With your begging bone
You're always chasing psychos down those rabbit holes
You like them the best 'cause they are dangerous
And they get off on you and your subservience

What can I do?
Can't make a monkey out of you
I can't keep you on a leash
Can't lock you in your room
I can't make you perfectly
Suspicious of the world
Can't teach you lessons
That you never want to learn

You started to believe
That you're completely unlovable
Which makes us want to laugh
'Cause you're adorable
You say you've been depressed
But no doubt you'll get over it
And get back on your feet
Just like a pugilist

What can I do?
Can't make a monkey out of you
I can't keep you on a leash
Can't lock you in your room
I can't make you perfectly
Suspicious of the world
Can't teach you lessons
That you never want to learn

It's ok to be afraid
Of what's inside another mind
An invitation to discover
And explore the other side
It's ok to be afraid
Of finding out you really care
Like a hammer crashing down
Between the clouds out of the air

Pray that they come through
Of course they never do

Of course they never do (X 4)

Bounce Along

( Wayne Wonder cover / Debbie Harry & Shirley Manson / Live at RockWomen 2004 )

Debbie:
It's a good-looking boy and that's for sure
The way he makes love me have to get more
He gave me even on the wooden floor
He says he wants a girl like me in his life
No problem me say me bounce alright

What I did before
'Cause what I wanna do right now
Is give you love galore
Baby

Only you can turn me on
Bounce along, bounce along

Shirley:
I'm head and over heels just for you
Loving every single thing you do
Clearly I can see you want me too
Lately I've been talking to myself
Saying I don’t need nobody else
'Cause all I'm searching for I found in you

I don't wanna sleep alone
Without you in my bed
'Cause what I wanna do right now
It's messing up my head
Baby

Debbie & Shirley:

Without you in my bed
'Cause when you're not around my love
It's messing up my head

Butterfly collector

( The Jam )

So you finally got what you wanted,
You've achieved your aim by making the walk in line,
And when you just can't get any higher,
You use your senses to suss out this week's climber,
And the small fame that you've acquired,
Has brought you into cult status but to me you're still a collector.

There's tarts and whores but you're much more,
You're a different kind 'cause you want their minds,
And you just don't care 'cause you've got no brains,
It's just a face on your pillowcase that thrills you.

And you've started looking much older,
And you're fashion sense is second rate like your perfume,
But to you in your own little dream world,
You're still the queen of the butterfly collectors.

You carry on 'cause it's all you know,
You can't light a fire, you can't cook or sew,
You get from day to day by filling your head,
But you surely must know the thrill between your legs has worn off.

And I don't care about morals,
'Cause the world's insane and we're all to blame anyway,
And I don't feel any sorrow,
Towards the kings and queens of the butterfly collectors.

There's tarts and whores but you're much more,
You're a different kind 'cause you want their minds,
And you just don't care 'cause you've got no brains,
It's just a face on your pillowcase that thrills you.

You carry on 'cause it's all you know,
You can't light a fire, you can't cook or sew,
You get from day to day by filling your head,
But you surely must know the thrill between your legs has worn off.

And I don't feel any sorrow,
Towards the kings and queens of the butterfly collectors.

Call Me

( Debbie Harry & Shirley Manson / Live at RockWomen 2004 )

Colour me your colour, baby
Colour me your car
Colour me your colour, darling
I know who you are
Come up off your colour chart
I know where you're coming from

Call me, call me in my life
Call me, call me any day or night
Call me, call me for a ride
When you're ready for your sweet delight
Call me

Cover me with kisses, baby
Cover me with love
Roll me in designer sheets
I'll never get enough
Emotions come I don't know why
Cover up love's alibi

Call me, call me on the line
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me, call me, oh my love
When you're ready we can share the wine
Call me

Ooh, he speaks the languages of love (what language is that)
Ooh, amore, amore, chiamami, chiamami, chiamami
Ooh, appelle-moi, appelle-moi, mon cherie
Anytime, any place, anywhere, anyway
Anytime, any place, anywhere, any day, anyway

Call me, call me, oh my love
Call me, call me any, anytime
Call me, call me for a ride
Call me, call me for some overtime
Call me, call me, oh my love
Call me, call me in a sweet design
Call me, call me for a ride
Call me, call me for some overtime

Call me, call me, call me…

Candy says

( Velvet Underground )

Candy says
I've come to hate my body
All that it requires in this world

Candy says
I'd like to know completely
What others so discretely talk about

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when i'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Candy says
I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be

Candy says
I hate the big decisions
That cause endless revisions in my mind

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when i'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Can't Get You Out Of My Head

(Live / Kylie Minogue cover)

La la la …

I just can't get you out of my head
And your lovin' is all I think about
I just can't get you out of my head
And it's more than I dare to think about

La la la …

I just can't get you out of my head
Boy, your lovin' is all I think about
I just can't get you out of my head
Boy, it's more than I dare to think about

Every night, every day
Just to be lost in your arms
Set me free
Won't you stay with me?
Oh for ever and ever and ever and ever

La la la …

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Can't seem to make you mine

( Sky Saxon / The seeds )

I can't seem to make you mine
Kissing all around all the time
Flying around like a bee
Hurtin' everything you see

I try everything I know, oh
To make you wanna love me so, oh
The only things you do, oh
Is try to put the hurt on me, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath every step I take
I'm more in love with you

Oh I can't go on like this
A little bit of love and not one kiss
I've gotta have your love every day
One never fade and stay, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath, every step I take
I'm more in love with you, oh

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Kissing all around all the time
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Flying around like a bee
Hurting everything you see

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine


Confidence

You're confident
So confident
You're full of it
You're full of shit
But you see

You're confident
So confident
You're full of it
You're full of shit
But you see

The world is full of girls like you
The world is full of girls like you
The world is full of girls like you

Dark Hearts And Heart Beats

(Shirley Manson / Dark Hearts OST)

You brought about my ruin
You spread yourself over my skin
Down my legs, over my mouth
You steal everything, but you don't get my love

So all I do is wait it out for you
I watch the sky, pray a wind will come
And wash you right out

Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to burst out
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to break free
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats oh

You used your words
But you should have used your knives
You plan to cut me down, down to your size
You're a small man, but you get a big surprise

So all I do is wait it out for you
I watch the sky, pray a wind will come
And wash you right out

Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to burst out
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to break free
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats oh

Leaves turn to gold
Fields turn and fold
We shake their right hand
Remember this
We don't forget
We think like children

Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to burst out
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to break free
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats oh

Dark hearts beat with dark secrets
Longing to burst out
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Like heartbeats, heartbeats, heartbeats
Like heartbeats

Deadwood

[Whispering:]
Handcuffed in the present tense
Variations on your violence
Mind games and pretty girls
A cracked song in the universe
I think it's time that I showed you what I'm made of
I'm afraid there is so much to be afraid of
I kill the fire so I don't get burned
Kill the fire and you won't get burned

Deadwood if you care to listen
Looks the same but there's something missing
It wears me out

Stripped bare I'm the same old savage
How in His name did we ever manage
It's not enough

Look me in the eye
I'm about to dive
Can you live your life
Without me

I don't need you anymore
I can't use you anymore
Killing the fire
And you kill the desire
I don't need you anymore

Loud and clear but you still don't get it
I call you up and then I'll regret it
It gets me down

You want the truth but you look right through it
Deadwood, but you hold on to it
It's such a shame

Look me in the eye
I'm about to dive
Can you live your life
Without me

I don't need you anymore
I can't use you anymore
Killing the fire and you kill the desire
I don't need you anymore

[Whispering, R side only:]
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes baby in a golden carriage
[Whispering, L side only:]
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes baby in a golden carriage

I don't need you anymore
I can't use you anymore

Killing the fire and you kill the desire X7

[Whispering in background, L side only:]
Symptomatic of what we've become
I used to think you were the only one
The only one * 6

[Whispering in background, R side only:]
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes baby in a golden carriage
Then comes loneliness

Don't let me down

(Live cover at Scotland Parliament / The Beatles )

Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

Nobody ever loved me like she does
O she does, yes she does
And if somebody loved me like she do me
O she do me, o yeah she does

So, don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

I'm in love for the first time
Don't you know it's gonna last
It's a love that lasts forever
It's a love that had no past

So, don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

And from the first time that she really done me
O she done me, she done me good
I guess nobody ever really done me
O she done me, she done me good

Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
Don't let me down
So, don't let me down
Don't let me down

 Driving lesson

Car, car, car, car, car, car

 Let's get behind the wheel,
We'll go driving
To the mountains,
To the rooftops.

 We can take it nice and slow,
I'll be driving
To the iceburgs,
To the edges

 Car, get in the car,
Car, get in the car.

 Heading to the clouds,
Past the buildings
By the harbor,
Through the storm.

 Tear across the page,
By the marker
Leave the light on,
By the boy's side.

 Car, get in the car,
Car, get in the car.

 I can make an honest man of you,
I can make you clean if you want me to,
I can make you go very far,
Just take the car.

 Get in the car,
Car, get in the car
 Take the car ( gotta feel to make it real ) X9

Enough Is Never Enough

Searchin' for fun
With nowhere to go,
Got your leather boots on
But what do you know

And they're playing garbage on the radio

Enter the dark
You wanna run
Enter the night
Where nobody knows you
Where the boys are and everybody's high

If enough is never enough
And you're down at heart
If the world is getting you down
Then come with us

If enough is never enough
And you're down at heart
If the world is getting you down
Then come with us

Back to the bar
Where the place is slamming
All the pretty queens and the sluts are dancin'
And the conscience of politicians' sly
All sweat and lust and filthy habits
All the wannabes are going to sell their package
At the carnival of the lonely broken hearts

If enough is never enough
And you're down at heart
If the world is getting you down
Then come with us

If enough is never enough
And you're down at heart
If the world is getting you down
Then come with us

If enough is never enough
And you're down at heart
If the world is getting you down
Then come with us

Come with us
Come with us
Come with us
Come with us

Get Bizzy with the Fizzy

Well I might just consider this
If you don't let me down
If you can keep me happy
Well you can stick around
Now I don't care for sycofants
They drive me 'round the bend
But if you can't control yourself
Then let's just keep good friends

Let's make out in the back of your car
Let's go driving and toodling around
We could always get lost in a crowd
Are you ready to get deep down?
Wooh ooh, wooh ooh !

Now there's something you should know about
I'm chronically depressed
I internalize my hatred
And sacrifice myself
Now I am busy saturday
But I am free tonight
And I might have to sort you out
If you don't do it right

Let's make out in the back of your car
Let's go driving and toodling around
We could always get lost in a crowd
Are you ready to get deep down?
Wooh ooh, wooh ooh !

Get Bizzy with the fizzy baby
Get Bizzy with the fizzy baby
Get Bizzy with the fizzy baby

Let's make out in the back of your car
Let's go driving and toodling around
We could always get lost in a crowd
Are you ready to get deep down?
Wooh ooh, wooh ooh !
Wooh ooh, wooh ooh !

Get Bizzy with the fizzy baby

Lay down in someone else's bed

Girls Talk Shit

(with Brody Dalle)

Stop those voices in your head
They eat away your will
You've everything you need

Hate the way they make you weak
They bring you to your knees
And steal your power away

Girls talk shit when you're backed up against it
Don't believe any word that they hear
And you can do what it is that you want
Without some little bitch in your ear

And girls talk shit, making no bones about it
When you're something that they don't understand
When they see that you got caught with your pants down
When they see you got caught with your pants down
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Buy into the things they say
You lose your common sense
You've everything you need

Love to bring you to your knees
And watch you as you bleed
And give your power away

Girls talk shit when you're backed up against it
Don't believe any word that they hear
And you can do what it is that you want
Without some little bitch in your ear

And girls talk shit, making no bones about it
When you're something that they don't understand
And you can do what it is that you want
Without some little bitch in your ear

And girls talk shit, making no bones about it
When you're something that they don't understand
And you can do what it is that you want
Without some little bitch in your ear

And girls talk shit when your karma is crashing
Girls talk shit when it falls to the floor
Girls talk shit when you're biting your nails down
To the quick 'cause you're feeling secure

Girls talks shit, making no bones about it
Girls talks shit, making no bones about it
You can't do what it is that you want
Without some little bitch in your ear
In your ear
In your ear

Honey Bee

You don’t even know my name
You’ve got me on a ball and chain
When you gonna notice me
God, you’re such a little tease

When you gonna finally land it on my lips
When you gonna give me just a little sip

You’re a honeybee, honeybee
Honeybee, you’re killing me

You don’t even know my name
I guess I ought to be ashamed
Going on the way I do
Watching you in everything
When you gonna give me just a little kick
Music in your heart and lying on your lips

You’re a honeybee, honeybee
Honeybee, you’re killing me

It’s hard to stumble in your harmonies
But just like nicotine and it gets complicated
You keep on pouring on the gasoline
And it’s the sweetest feeling, oh it gets me, gets me down

You don’t even know my name
How am I gonna reign you in
Tramping everything you see
You don’t own everything

When you gonna give me just a little hit
When you gonna give me just a little bit

You’re a honeybee, honeybee
Oh, honeybee, it’s killing me
You’re killing me, honeybee
You’re killing me, my honeybee
It’s killing me

In The Snow

(Shirley Manson / Demo)

I'm one to talk
But you're so drunk you cannot walk
And you make no sense
Just slips and slurs between your lips
And your eyes have shrunk
To pins, like piss-holes in the snow
And you're so fucked up
You have no clue you missed my show

Two gritty hands
You've got them stuck inside my shirt
And I bite my tongue
'Cause I know that love's supposed to hurt
I'm feeling sick
I don't like the way you look at her
But you just laugh
And stick your tongue inside my mouth

If you don't want me, I don't care to know
'Cause in a moment I'll feel beautiful
We both collide like we are crashing cars
We fall together and forget ourselves

And in a moment we feel something new
There's no one else, there's only me and you
But when we pull apart I feel unloved
And you just become another thing I wish I hadn't done

You take me home
Like a piece of lint stuck on my clothes
Put a record on
And sit there mouthing all the words
And it don't feel good
As I press my back into the wall
With a little love
Better having that than none at all

If you don't love me, I don't care to know
'Cause in a moment I'll feel beautiful
We both collide like we are crashing cars
We fall together and forget ourselves

And in a moment we feel something new
There's no one else, there's only me and you
But when we pull apart I feel alive
And you just become another thing I wish I hadn't done
I wish I hadn't done
It never lasts

No one wants to feel unlovable
But everybody has a place you cannot touch
Everybody has a hungry mouth to feed
We fall into bed like we are second best

So once you rob the future
So once your rob ourselves
So in love with the problem
We'll be solving all our lives

John Anderson

( Robert Burns poem / Live Edinburgh, Scotland 01-07-99 )

John Anderson my Jo, John
When we were first acquent

Your locks are like the snaw
But blessings on your frosty pow
John anderson my Jo

And monie a cantie day, John
We’ve had wi’ ane anither
Now we maun totter down, John
And hand in hand we’ll go
And sleep thegither at the foot

Kick my ass

( Vic chesnutt Cover )

I'm so sorry you had to kick my ass,
You said I ruined your life,
I didn't mean to do that,

I had to untangle where we was intwined,
It was strangling me
Were you breathing so fine,

The jam I was in
When things weren't working out.
Led me to the brunt
Of your swinging bout.

I'm so sorry,
I regret everything,
What can I do
To have you take back that swing.

I'm so sorry
A scuffle ensued.
But things are much better
I guess thanks to you,

The jam I was in
When things weren't working out.
Led me to the brunt
Of your swinging bout.

I'm so sorry you had to pull my hair.
I had to take care of business,
A lot of business giving there.

Lick the pavement

You've got my number you
Know what I need
And I go crazy when
Ever I bleed

Won't you come over I
Swear I'll be nice
My girlfriend told me that
You got a wife

I learn to bribe I learn to say please
Oh won't you lick the pavement for me
I learn to bribe I learn to say please
I like you best when you're on your knees

I know you're lonely 'cause
You're just like me
Why don't you call me you
Know where I'll be

I learn to bribe I learn to say please
Oh wont you lick the pavement for me
I learn to bribe I learn to say please
I like you best when you're on your knees

Do do do do do do
Do do do do do ...

I learn to bribe I learn to say please
Oh wont you lick the pavement for me
I learn to bribe I learn to say please
I like you best when you're on your knees

Do do do do do do do when your on your knees do do do do X6
Oh won't you lick the pavement for me X3
Oh won't you lick the pavement for me, please, please...

Love Like Suicide

( Not Your Kind of People Japan Bonus Track )

All the money, all the pearls
All the rubies in the world
They can't buy her, they can't have her
They'll just have to use somebody else

All the money on the walls
All the people that you can call

Love like suicide
When opposites collide
You dive into it blind
A love like suicide

Love like suicide
It's all there is
It's all you got

It's all you want
It's all you need

All the cool girls, all the praise
All the connections that we make
All the quaaludes, all the girls
All the love in the world

All the changes, all the fun
All the damage that could be done

Love like suicide
When opposites collide
You dive into it blind
A love like suicide

Love like suicide
(it's all there is, it's all you got)

Maybe

(Eric Avery feat. Shirley Manson / Help Wanted LP)

I feel so hollow
And my head feels like a crowd
And I know you don't mean to pretend
But you pretend anyway
So nothing will change

Counting the ways you put yourself to sleep
The days you put away for safe keeping
For maybe yes
For maybe no
For maybe not
Or just
Or just maybe

We're still alive
I hear your kind words
And that's some kind of miracle
It all sounds so hollow

And all that's better left unsaid
Will never make it across our bed
When you close the distance
Then what opens

What if all that's never said
And all that's in our heads
What if all that's never said
Got said

Counting the ways to put yourself to sleep
The days you put away for safe keeping
For maybe yes
For maybe no
For maybe not
Or just
Or just maybe

For maybe yes
For maybe no
Or just maybe
Or just maybe

Never Be free

( Sex is not the enemy EP )

You’ll never be free
You’ll never be free

This is the place where dreams begin
I wait right here for you, my friend
I shiver underneath your skin
A brazen thief who walks right in

You can beat yourself up to the beat of a drum
You can drink til you drop, til you can’t stand up
And it tastes so sweet, it tastes so sweet

You’ll never forgive me, you’ll never be free
You might as well kill me, you’ll never be free
You’ll never forgive me, you’ll never be free
You might as well kill me, you’ll never be free

I’ll be your master heroine
Your mother’s milk, your adrenaline
Are you a hunter just like me?
A lot of heart, a little crazy

You can beat yourself up to the beat of the drum
You can drink til you drop, til you can’t stand up
And it tastes so sweet, tastes so sweet

You’ll never forgive me, you’ll never be free
You might as well kill me, you’ll never be free
You’ll never forgive me, you’ll never be free
You might as well kill me, you’ll never be, never be free

Your house, your room, your mouth, your bed
Your ear, your heart, your veins, your blood
In your house, your room, your mouth, your bed
Your ear, your heart, your veins, your blood

You’ll never be free
You’ll never be, never be free
You’ll never be free
You’ll never be, never be free

You’ll never forgive me
You might as well kill me

Nobody Can Win

( Why Do You Love Me EP )

Well, I set myself up big time this time
With the notion that you try your best, then
Everyone wins

But nothing ever goes that smoothly
And it won't end like a movie
Where the good guy always wins

Until you figure out
A way that you can live without
Stories with happy ends

Everyone I know's trying to get by
Fighting all the half-true lies
Nobody can win

They fill you up with expectations
Elevations and predictions that can't
Possibly fly

Cinderella's waiting tables
And the princess never did wake up
That's how it begins

Until you figure out
A way that you can live without
Stories with happy ends

Everyone I know's trying to get by
Fighting all the half-true lies

Nobody can win
Nobody can win
Nobody can win

No Horses

They'll love you too
They'll love you too
They'll love you too
They'll love you too

They'll come to you
They'll come to you
They'll come to you
They'll come to you too

They'll worship you
They'll worship you
They'll worship you
They'll worship you too

They'll use you too (they'll use you too)
They'll lie to you (they'll lie to you)
They'll steal from you (they'll steal from you)
They'll sell you too (they'll sell you too)
They'll turn on you
They'll come for you
They'll hurt you too
They'll get to you too

And there will be no apologies
And no more security
There will be no cops
Just men with guns

In their shiny black uniforms
And their big black boots
With their shiny black batons
And their sleek black cars

With their fingers on the trigger
With their fingers on the trigger
With their fingers on the trigger
And their skeleton keys

And there will be no marches
There will be no impurity
No more TV
And no more cavalcades

And no more horses, no horses
There'll be no horses, no more motorcades

There's a sky full of tears
A sky full of tears
There's a sky full of tears
There's a sky full of tears

I've been awake all night (been awake all night)
And the sun don't shine (and the sun don't shine)
And the night's so long (and the night's so long)
And the moon is in shock (the moon is in shock)

And all the lovers turn cops
And all the lovers turn cops
Oh all the lovers turn cops
Oh all the lovers turn cops

And no more horses, no horses
There'll be no horses, no more motorcades
No more horses, no horses
There'll be no horses, no more motorcades


There's nothing to grieve
There's nothing to lose
There's nothing to hide
There's nothing to grow
There's nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

This is the apocalypse
This is the apocalypse
This is the apocalypse
They killed the horses

On Fire

(The Chemicals single)

Walking in the rain
Walking through the streets
In the dark at nights I might find some peace to think
'Cause my mind is on fire

My hair is blowing in the wind
And you are saying something
But I cannot hear a word that's coming out of your sweet mouth
'Cause my mind is on fire

No, I'm not sorry
I'm not sorry at all
No, I won't apologize although I know that's what you'd like
But I'm not sorry at all

You're always bringing out
The very worst in me
The weakest version of a person that I'd ever want to be
But my heart is on fire

You're so hard to figure out
I don't know what you're wanting
Am I supposed to sacrifice myself to let you free
But my heart is on fire

No, I'm not sorry
I'm not sorry at all
No, I won't apologize although I know that's what you'd like
But I'm not sorry at all

Samson & Delilah

(Shirley Manson / Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles OST)

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole building down

Delilah was a woman, she was fine and fair
She had good looks and coal black hair
Delilah, she can ground on Samson's mind
When he saw this woman, she looked so fine

Delilah, she climbed up on Samson's knee
Said, "Tell me where your strength lies, if you please"
Then she spoke so kind and she talked so fair
'Til Samson said, "Delilah, cut off my hair"

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole building down

People read about old Samson as far back as his birth
He was the strongest man that ever lived on earth
One day while Samson's walking, walking along
Looked down on the ground and saw an old jawbone
And he stretched out his arms
And his chains broke like thread
When he got to move, ten thousand men was dead

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole building down

If I had my way (if I had my way)
If I had my way (if I had my way)
If I had my way
I would burn this building down

Well, Samson and the lion got entwined in a fight
And Samson, he jumped up and took on the lion's might
You won't know just how a lion kill a man with his paws
Well, Samson got his hands up round that lion's jaws
And he ripped that beast and he killed him dead
And the bees laid honey in the lion's head

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole building down

If I had my way (if I had my way)
If I had my way (if I had my way)
If I had my way
I would burn this building down

If I had my way
If I had my way
If I had my way
I'd burn this whole building down

Sex Never Goes Out Of Fashion

She's the kind of girl who likes to do it stand up
From the back or anyway you want it, love
From the top if you keep it going all night
You're as good as the next for a fun time

Lookie here like a rabbit on the dancefloor
Party girl like you comin' in the back door
"c'mon boy, give it good, give an encore.."
Never leave a hungry sister begging one more

You keep it good and she'll beat you at your own game
Flip a switch and she's crying out her own name
Keep a lady happy as a little lamb
Give her head and you're riding on a sure shot

It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot
It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot
It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot

Wham bam slam it like a mama's man
Baby's on her back doin' the can-can
Such a babe-licious poco loco
Make her bob, make her beg and sweat it hardcore
Honky tonky lovin' keep her trembling
Funky style's never out of fashion, man
Keep it fresh with something for the weekend
Get some, daddy... You're riding on a sure shot

It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot
It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot
It's a sure shot... Honey, it's a sure shot
It's a sure shot, sure shot, sure shot

A little bit more
(Down her legs)
A little bit more
(Down her back)
A little bit more
(Down her neck)
A little bit more
(Down her arms)
A little bit more
(Down her breast)
A little bit more
(Down below)
A little bit more
(To her toes)
A little bit more

Shame, You're All I've Got

(Le Butcherettes feat. Shirley Manson / Cry Is For The Flies LP)

I'm not okay, but it's alright
You broke my heart, but it's okay
I fell asleep for a day or so
And now the hurt has turned to shame

Shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, you're all I've got

I'm not happy, but it's alright
I try to smile and it's so wrong
You stick a needle in my thigh
But now the pain has turned to shame

Shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, shame, you're all I've got

And when you look inside yourself
You see that little demon laugh
Making the sun come out
Looking to melt you down
And then the birds fly out
They want your meat in their beaks

Shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, shame, you're all I've got
Shame, shame, shame, you're all I've got

Burn inside, just go away
Burn inside, just go away

Shame, shame, you're all I've got

Sleep

In the middle of the night
Head on my pillow
Looking like a little ghost
Seems like all of the things
That you gave me mother
Have all gone up in smoke

In the middle of the night
You don't know what I'm thinking
But still the stars do sparkle and shine
Seems like all of the time
Our boat was slowly sinking
You didn't even seem to mind

Now all I want to do is sleep
Now all I want to do is sleep
Now all I want to do is sleep

Soldier Through This

You work too hard
So when you come home to me you are tired
And you don't want to talk about it
You envy my drive
And how I am motivated

We'll go down to the park
Check out the carnival for a while
And try to forget all about it
I'm out of control
And you don't appreciate it

Believe it
I need it
I feel intoxicated
I love it
I want it
Don't make me leave you for it

You say I have changed
Self-centered and vain
And you don't respect me for it
The world is the same
So I play the game
And you've grown to hate me for it

So we rearranged
There's no one to blame
But still you resent me for it
I call all the shots
I hold all the cards
And you feel emasculated

Believe it
I need it
I feel intoxicated
I love it
I want it
Don't make me leave you for it

Believe it
I need this
I feel intoxicated
I love it
I want it
Don't make me leave you for it

Believe it
I need this
I feel intoxicated
I love it
I want it
Don't make me leave you for it

How do we reconcile this X4
We're able to soldier through this X4

*** Thanx a lot to carnage40 for this one ***

Space Can Come Through Anyone

( Why Do You Love Me EP )

Use me and you lose me
No you're not excused, see
You jumped upon my back
And now I'm gonna break free
You're raising my blood faster than a heart attack, Mac
If you change your mind 'bout what's inside a girl

Watch what you wish for
Watch what you wish for

What are you like
When you're lost you make no sense
What are you like
Will you fight till' nothing's left
And just like the sun
Leap through each day, go back again
Just like the sun
Space can come through anyone
Space can come through anyone

Watch what you wish for darling, go!

There's nothing else for it
Cut it out, 'cause we've had it
Split it down the middle
Cut it, check 'em and cash it
Spin the green bottle, fill the world with love, Jack
If you change your mind about what's inside yourself

Watch what you wish for
Watch what you wish for

What are you like
When you're lost you make no sense
What are you like
Will you fight 'til nothing's left
And just like the sun
Leap through each day, go back again
Just like the sun
Space can come through anyone
Space can come through anyone

Just like the sun
Leap through each day, go back again
Just like the sun
Space can come through anyone
Just like the sun
Leap through each day, go back again
Just like the sun
Space can come through anyone
Space can come through anyone

Watch what you wish for

Subhuman

Burn down all your idols, destroy your idols
Create a scene
There goes all your reason , it's helter skelter
It's not a dream
Come down from the altar , remove your blindfold
What do you see?
Nothing left to do here , there's nothing new here
It's all the same
You're going down, down, down, how low can you go? X3
Hare, hare krishna , was that your sister
A covergirl?
A wasted primadonna , she lost her way here
She disappeared
Come back to your altar , and build a fire
It's getting cold
Nothing stops the rain here , there's not a soul here
You're all alone
You're going down, down, down, how low can you go? X3
Here we go now
Build a new religion , no inhibition
No alibi
Televised confession , a true obsession
Is on the rise
Miscommunication , disinformation
A perfect waste
Bite the sacred apple
Suck the poison
Enjoy the taste
You're going down, down, down
How low can you go?
You're going down, down, down
How low can you go?
You're going down, down, down X3
How low can you go?
How low can you go? X4

Supernatural

( Vic chesnutt Cover )

Built a king on compliments
Charisma and advertisements
Still they see him shimmer ephemeral
It ain't supernatural
No, it ain't supernatural
Supernatural maybe

It was an out of body experience
Yes I flew around the hospital walls
Intravenous demerol
And it weren't supernatural
No, it weren't supernatural
Supernatural maybe

A sudden smell of hay
A certain view
Sparked off a case of the deja vu
Is it inexplicable?
No, no, it ain't supernatural
No, it ain't supernatural
Supernatural maybe

Talk Of The Town

(The Pretenders feat. Shirley Manson / Decades Rock Live 2006)

Chrissie:
Such a drag to want something sometime
One thing leads to another I know
Was a time wanted you for mine
Nobody knew

Shirley:
You arrived like a day
And passed like a cloud
I made a wish, I said it out loud
Out loud in a crowd
Everybody heard
It was the talk of the town

It's not my place to know what you feel
I'd like to know, but why should I
Who were you then, who are you now
Common labourer by night, by day highbrow

Chrissie & Shirley:
Back in my room I wonder, then I
Sit on the bed, look at the sky
Up in the sky
Clouds rearrange
Like the talk of the town

Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
You've changed, you've changed your place in this world
You've changed, you've changed your place in this world

Shirley:
Oh, but it's hard to live by the rules
I never could and still never do
The rules and such never bothered you
You call the shots and they follow

Chrissie:
I watch you still from a distance, then go
Back to my room, you never know

Chrissie & Shirley:
I want you, I want you but now
Who's the talk of the town

Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
Maybe tomorrow, maybe someday
You've changed, you've changed your place in this world, your place in this world
You've changed, you've changed your place in this world

*** Thanx a lot to Zee from the forum for this one ***

Tell Me Where It Hurts

(Absolute Garbage LP)

What is my day going to look like
What will tomorrow bring me
If I had x-ray eyes, I could see inside
I wouldn't have to protect the future
I wish that you would do some talking
Or else am I to know what you're thinking
If only people would say what it really was
What it really was
What it really was that they wanted

Tell me where it hurts
To hell with everybody else
All I care about is you and that's the truth
They don't love me, I can tell
But you do, so they can go to hell

Did they ever give you a reason
To believe in something different
If you're looking for love, for what's worth
I have plenty of it lying around here somewhere
If you're looking for disappointment
You can find it around any corner
In the middle of the night I hold on to you tight
So both of us can feel protected

Tell me where it hurts
To hell with everybody else
All I care about is you and that's the truth
They don't love me, yeah I can tell
But you do, so they can go to hell

I've been loved but I didn't know how to feel it
And I've been adored but I don't know if I ever believed it
I've been loved my whole life but I didn’t know how to take it
Until

So tell me where it hurts
To hell with everybody else
All I care about is you and that's the truth
They don't love me, yeah I can tell
But you do, so they can go to hell
But you do, so they can go to hell

Tell me where it hurts
Tell me where it hurts
Tell me where it hurts now
Tell me where it hurts
Tell me where it hurts
Tell me where it hurts

The Chemicals

(Garbage feat. Brian Aubert)

Our Jesus wouldn't save my soul
He checked out when he lost control
The end of the world we can never save
The complicated things that drive us both insane

The ghosts in the back of your eyes
The sparks in the dark when they come alive
I give myself to a higher power
Every time I crawl inside

I need your heaven
I need your heaven
I'll do anything you ask me to
Heaven, I need your heaven
I can't wait till the moment that I surrender to

The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals

The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals

Aphrodite's siren smiles
She steals anything she likes
Everything you never said
Everything you never did
Everything you fantasized

The ghosts at the back of your eyes
They don't miss a beat when they come alive
Give yourself to a higher power
Every time you crawl inside

You're seduced by
Surrendered to
Seduced by
Surrendered to

The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals

The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals
The chemicals, the chemicals

The Hunger

(Shirley Manson)

And so you went, could not be found
Another wind in some other town
When no one knows your ? name
How you rocked your body on the way

That's the way we lose our fucking minds
Oh all the names we leave behind
No one knows the longing and the shame
All those sorry, so, so sorry babies
And so it's over

The winds blows on, on, on, on
But something whispers from the storm
As we wander through the dark
The hunger of the heart
Something whispers from the storm
As we wander through the dark
The hunger of the heart

And that's the way we lose our minds
Oh all the names we leave behind
Though no one knows how much remains
For all we lost for the blame

And oh
The world goes on

Something whispers through the storm
Yeah something whispers from the storm
As we wander through the cold and dark
With the hunger of the lonely heart

And so it's over, the wind blows on
But there are whispers from the storm
As we wander through the lonely dark
With the hunger of our hearts

And oh
The world goes on
(Something whispers through the storm
Yeah something whispers from the storm)

As we wander through the cold and dark
With the hunger of our hearts

The Trouble I'm In

(Gavin Rossdale feat. Shirley Manson / Wanderlust LP)

Gavin:
Who do you lie between
Who has your love
You give it like poppy seed
You flow in the blood

I don't wanna fight no more
I don't want to see you crying
I don't want an all out war
You got soul that's dying again and again

You gotta let me in
You gotta let me in
She's under my skin
She's under my skin

Gavin & Shirley:
Not looking for a scientist
I don't want a lift
Not looking for a doctor
To get me fixed

I don't wanna fight no more
I don't want to see you crying
I don't want an all out war
You got soul that's dying again and again

You gotta let me in (you gotta let me in)
You gotta let me in (you gotta let me in)
She's under my skin (she's under my skin)
She's under my skin (she's under my skin)

All the trouble I'm in (the trouble I'm in)
All the trouble I'm in (the trouble I'm in)
All the trouble I'm in (the trouble)

Gavin:
All eyes are watching me
I'm a stranger in this town
I must have lost my way
Since I took a turn awhile ago
These streets I do not know

Who do you lie between
Who has your love

Gavin & Shirley:
I don't wanna fight no more
I don't want to see you crying
I don't want an all out war

You gotta let me in (you gotta let me in)
You gotta let me in (you gotta let me in)
She's under my skin (she's under my skin)

The World Is Not Enough

I know how to hurt
I know how to heal
I know what to show
And what to conceal
I know when to talk
And I know when to touch
No-one ever die from wanting to much

The world is not enough
But it is such a perfect place to start...my love
And if you're strong enough
Together we can take the world apart...my love

People like us
Know how to survive
There's no point in living
If you can't feel the life
We know when to kiss
And we know when to kill
If we can't have it all
Then nobody will

The world is not enough
But it is such a perfect place to start...my love
And if you're strong enough
Together we can take the world apart...my love

(I...)I feel sick
(I...)I feel scared
(I...)I feel ready
(I...)And yet unprepared

The world is not enough
But it is such a perfect place to start...my love
And if you're strong enough
Together we can take the world apart...my love

The world is not enough X2

Thirteen

( Big Star Cover )

Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you

Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said about "Paint It black"
Rock 'n Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you.

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of.
And would you be an outlaw for my love
If it's so, then, let me know
If it's "no," well, I can go.
I won't make you.

Time Will Destroy Everything

Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything

Oh the world is rough
It's just like the ground will swallow you right up
And know that you're awake
The clock is ticking and it won't stop, it don't stop
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything

I am ready for the last fight, the last fight
The last fight, the last fight
The last fight, the last fight

Tick tock, tick tock
Tick tock, tick tock
Tick tock, tick tock
Tick tock, tick tock

I am not shaking in my shoes and
I am not waving in the wind
Tick tock, tick tock
Tick tock, tick tock
I am not waving in the wind

Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything

Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything
Time will destroy everything

Tornado

Come on Shirl...
You got a thing that thing gets me on fire
Come on Shirl...
Gets me on fire...

Trip my wire

Be easy on me
I'm fragile
I'm easily
Broken
Be careful with me
I'm a fighter
And you're a cheat and
You're a liar
 I don't need this anymore
This is not what I came for
I won't stand for this at all
I won't see you anymore
Be easy on me
Don't trip my wire
I'm a freak and
I'm on fire
Be easy on me
Trip my wire
I'm a freak and
I'm on fire
 I don't need this anymore
This is not what I came for
I won't stand for this at all
I won't see you anymore
Be careful with me
I'm fragile
I'm a bitch babe
And I'm on fire
Be careful with me
I'm fragile
I'm a bitch babe
And I'm on fire
Be careful with me
Be careful with me
Be careful with me
I'm fragile
Don't you trip, tripping on my wire
I'm a freak, freak, freak but baby I'm on fire
I don't need this anymore
This isn't what I came here for

Use me

Use me
I'm beautiful
Take me
I'm yours
Hurt me
It feels like medicine
And all I deserve

People have funny things
Swimming inside
They swing like pendulums
That turn like the tides

Darling
I don't need money
I could be happy
With someone to love

Oh what a crazy time
I've been a fool
On a wild ride to oblivion
I lost my mind

But with you it's understood
You make me feel strong
Your arms look so powerful
When they hold me down

Darling
I don't need money
I could be happy
With someone to love

Everyone looks dangerous
And noone keeps their promises
And I am always running
And you have your dark places

Regretting
Feeling
Remembering
Something
We never said (regretting)
We wish we said (something)
We should have said (regretting)
We could have said (something)

Truly
I don't need money
Or strangers to love me
Or diamonds and pearls
Or fast cars
Designed for the rock stars
I could be happy
With someone to trust
Someone to love
Someone to trust

Use me
I'm beautiful
Take me
I'm yours

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses

( U2 Cover / Achtung Baby Covers LP )

You're dangerous
'Cause you're honest
You're dangerous
You don't know what you want
Well you left my heart
Empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey

You're an accident
Waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass
Left there on the beach
Well you tell me things
I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me
Just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Well you stole it
'Cause I needed the cash
And you killed it
'Cos I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me
'Cause I asked you to
Oh baby, can we still be friends

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee

Oh the deeper I spin
Oh the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
I took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose, the doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around
Your gypsy heart

Don't turn around
Don't turn around again
Don't turn around
And don't look back
Come on now love
Don't you look back

Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses
Who's gonna take the place of me
Who's gonna ride your wild horses
Who could tame the heart of thee

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Wild horses

( Live Cover Edinburgh Secret Show 2002 / Rolling stones )

Childhood living
It's easy to do
The things you wanted
I bought them for you
Graceless lady
You know who I am
You know I can't let you
Slide through my hand

Wild horses
Couldn't drag me away
Wild horses
Couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer
A dull aching pain
Now you're decided
To treat me the same
No sweeping exits
Or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter
Or treat you unkind

Wild horses
Couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses
Couldn't drag me away

I have my freedom
But I dont have much time
So let's do some living
After we die

Wild horses
Couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses
Couldn't drag me away
Wild, wild horses
Couldn't drag me away
Wild horses
We want them someday

Witness To Your Love

Was we ever so young
We were tripping into town
Back where The Canongate meets up
With the dirty little side street

I can't remember much
Though I know we did like to shoplift
We knew our lives stretched up to the stars
And we were the masters of the universe

Were we ever really that smart
How did we come this far
We would go skipping over the heart
Over the city that shaped us

We would go leaping into the arms
Of anything that scared us
So long before we learned the law
Fearless and stupid and reckless and

Free
We were free
So free
We were free

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
I was a witness to your love
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
I was a witness to your love
To your love

Free
We were free
So free
We were free

We were so free you and me
A witness to your love
We were so free you and me
A witness to your love
We were so free you and me
A witness to your love
We were so free you and me

We were so free you and me

You're on patrol for me
I'm on patrol for you
You're on patrol for me
I'm on patrol for you
