The bluesy punk duo the Kills consist of vocalist/guitarist VV, aka Alison Mosshart, formerly of the Florida punk band Discount, and drummer/guitarist/vocalist Hotel, aka Jamie Hince. After Discount ended in 2000, VV began exchanging tapes with the London-based Hotel through the mail, but both of them felt hindered by this method, so VV crossed the Atlantic so the duo could write faster. In spring of 2001, they issued a self-released demo that showcased their gritty, sexy sound and earned favorable reviews from such quarters as TapeOp Magazine. They also contributed a song, "Restaurant Blouse," to 5 Rue Christine's If the Twenty-First Century Did Not Exist It Would Be Necessary to Invent It compilation early in 2002, before their debut EP, Black Rooster, arrived that summer on Dim Mak.

Along with gigs at the London and Glasgow LadyFests and tour dates alongside Le Tigre, the Kills also toured the U.S. for eight weeks before returning to London to finish their first full-length album, Keep on Your Mean Side, which was released by Rough Trade in spring 2003. A second album, No Wow, arrived in 2005 and was an even dirtier, leaner collection of songs. The Kills retooled their sound for 2008's Midnight Boom, mixing more electronic beats and pop hooks into their punky bedrock.

While touring alongside the Raconteurs in support of Midnight Boom, Mosshart struck up a friendship with frontman Jack White, prompting the two to form a supergroup, the Dead Weather, in 2009. The Kills took a short break while the Dead Weather worked feverishly, issuing two albums in ten months and touring behind both. Blood Pressures brought the hiatus to an end in 2011.

Superstition

Superstition is
Your modern eye
With original skin
And original lie
Your modern shell
Wants to fill itself
You got electric now honey so
What the hell

Superstition is
Your modern eye
With original skin
And original lie
Your modern shell
Wants to kill itself
You got electric now honey so
What the hell

Superstition is
Your modern eye
With original skin

Your modern shell
Wants to fill itself
You got electric now honey so
What the hell

Cat Claw

It's time to stand up our fingers from the bell
Tell me sugar how you felt now
Come on sugar, tell now
Can't stand your face until it took off
I wouldn't give a fuck but the love here is such a long walk
If this all goes well you won't have nothing
So tell you dead wrong, dead wrong
And now you're long gone
Hang out for minute and re-think
Question, tell me what she'd done
Just one, cause I can't see nothing

So, one, two and
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

Got my hand caught in a cat claw, scream!
On everyone's that time looks around, they're talking trees, you know
Never know who's coming, might easy be me, you know
Give up for my love, cause that's too much, fuck!

So, one, two and...
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

Oh...

It's time to stand up our fingers from the bell
Tell me sugar how you felt now
Come on sugar, tell now
Can't stand your face until it took off
I wouldn't give a fuck but the love here is such a long walk

So, one, two and...
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!
You got it, I want it!

Won't move over

Fried my little brains
Fried my little brains

Hand

I called her yesterday and she told me ummm that uhh
Well, she was just talking me about the weather man on television
And I thought you'd be interested in knowing about this
It's pretty interesting, but well uhh well
Before they actually put the weatherman on the television with the weather board
They just put the weather man's hand pointing to stuff
And sometimes ummm they drew on the board like they would draw cc hmm cc clouds as rain
And hmm sometimes they would draw mm maybe hmm lightning
And hmm and sometimes hmm sun if it was gonna' be sunny
But the thing that they did the weatherman had to get get to the station early because umm
There was...uhhh they had to get make-up put on their hand

*** Thanx to Joseph for this one ***

Gypsy death and you

You knock on her door
She don’t recognize your voice no more
So she got on an airplane
Na na na na not so long after

Struck down from the fever
Layed down in her hotel bed
Wouldn’t take no phone calls at all
Didn’t want no more voices in her head

If that’s the way that you feel
If that’s the way that you feel
If that’s the way that you feel honey, then
That’s the way that you feel

In the blue part of the evening
Sometimes it's hard
She thinks she hears you coming
But she’s stuck against the wall

Oh she wants what she wants
So she do what she do
But now when she looks at you
She covers one eye
'Cause she can see into your mind
She no longer wants to

If that’s the way that you feel
If that’s the way that you feel
And that’s the way that you feel honey, then
That’s the way that you feel

No wow

No wow

You're gonna have to step over my dead body
Before you walk out that door
You charmed me with your magic
Landed looking tragic
"Forever" is the feather you ain't got no more

And all the people you see coming by to save you
You're make believing on in your mind
Your eyes are holy rollin', looking, beating, knocking
The ceiling gets closer to you all the time

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet
Fled to die closer to the shore
This ain't no wow no more
This ain't no wow no more
This ain't no wow no more

You're gonna have to step over my dead body
Before you walk out that door
You charmed me with your magic
Landed looking tragic
"Forever" is the feather you ain't got no more

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet
Fled to die closer to the shore
This ain't no wow no more
This ain't no wow no more
This ain't no wow no more

Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like the loose end of the night

Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like the loose end of the night

Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like the loose end at the end of the night

Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like
Drip drip drip drip drip kinda' like the loose end at the end of the night

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet, fled to die closer to the shore

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down
Who ain't dead yet, fled to die closer to the shore

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down

This ain't no wow now
They all been put down

There ain't no wow now...

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out

Dead Road 7

This dead road leads down
To that dead road and back
To the road where the oldest road
Met the first dead road that cracked
Made the second and curved the third
Forked the forth and said to the fifth
"If you walk just a couple of miles
You're gonna come across the sixth, the sixth, the sixth"

It runs into a ditch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up

Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish

This dead road leads down
To that dead road and back
To the road where the oldest road
Met the first dead road and cracked

Made the second and curved the third
Forked the forth and said to the fifth
"If you walk just a couple of miles
You're gonna come across the sixth, the sixth, the sixth"

Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up

Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish

Dead road seven is a bitch
Dead road seven is a bitch
Floating belly flush
Floating belly up, up, up, up

Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish
Go down there if you wish

The Good Ones

Took a car to the part of the city
Where the city runs out of street lights
God knows, it's the way that it goes
That we're never gonna catch any daylight

My little sister's eyes so wide
They must have been the size of the city moon tonight
My little sister's eyes so wide
That they must have been the size of the city

Did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones
Did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones

Did you got me the good ones
The real good ones, what you got
Take the water for the water taste good
I took the water and the water was hot

Once in a while, once in a while
You got to burn your lips, keep your feelings alive
Once in a while, once in a while
You got to burn down your house, keep your dreaming alive

So, did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones
Oh, did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones

Did you get the good ones
Did you get the good ones
Oh, did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones
Did you get the real good ones
Did you get me the good ones
Oh, did you get the real good ones
Did you get me the good ones

Did you get the real good ones
Did you get the good ones
Oh, did you get the real good ones
Did you get me the good ones

I Hate The Way You Love

I, I, I can't get full
Please could you take my shakes
And would you hold them still
My words fell into the road
I saw it starting to happen
And I could not collect them
Before they were rolled
I could not collect them
Before they were rolled

You love, you love, you love
I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love

May I look into your glass
Because I need some reflection
Yeah, I know it won't last
And look it's over already over
And I did not have the heart
No I did not have the heart
I was loosing a button
Right from the start
I was loosing a button
I was coming apart
I was coming apart

You love, you love, you love
I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love

I know I've seen you before
You bored me then and now you just bore me some more
The clock gets locked, locked
Tick tick, tick-tick-tick, stop, stop!
And now I can't get full
Please could you take my shakes
My eyes feel spikey and small
And I can't get no picture on them at all
I can't get no picture on them at all

You love, you love, you love
I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love

I Hate the Way You Love, Pt. 2

At The Back Of The Shell

Kiss all your fingers
What's that for
You'll never get to heaven
With your shirt all tore
Cut through your finger
And cut you loose
Lost a lot a blood
Lost a lot a cool cool cool

Now it ain't such a thrill
It ain't such a thrill
Now it ain't such a thrill
It get's a little dirty
Like the guts of a hack
And you'll never get it back
You never get the damn thing back

Looked a picture
Took up half a roll
The way you went and took off
Half your clothes, and now

It ain't such a thrill
It ain't such a thrill
It started at the back of the shell
And it ain't such a thrill

Running to catch up
The last city bus
Wearing out your yellow
Hulla dress
Lipstick a mess
Your ch-cherry best
Kissing on the window
Just to check on the red

You know, it ain't such a thrill
Now it ain't such a thrill
It started at the back of the shell
Now it ain't such a thrill
It ain't such a thrill
It ain't such a thrill
It ain't such a thrill...

Sweet Cloud

See I've upset the weather

I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive

Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool
Lost a lot of blood
Lost a lot of cool cool cool

The night calls it stays on the night
I know no words to fix my killing
I know no words to fix my killing

I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive
I know no words to fix my killing
But I'll do anything to bring my brother alive

Rodeo Town

If I'm so evil
Why are you satisfied
If I'm so evil
Why are you satisfied

I had a dream about your ghost
You were breathing down my neck
Idiot style in the shower
Flicking your ashes down the drain

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down

If I'm so evil
Why are you all satisfied
If I'm so evil
Why are you satisfied

When you left you said
I'm gonna keep an eye on you
Well I don't mind if you do
But you can't keep quiet

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down

You were telling me how
This ain't no Rodeo Town
I caught the gun
But you made me set it down


Murdermile

This ain't murdermile
That's just the way I smile
You're like hot oil
Got your roots down in a fire

Spitting shit like a tire
Got your foot down and your mind down
To it's last little wire
Come on! Come on!

It's a train wreck
You got me on the wrong track, honey
It's a train wreck
You got me on the wrong track, honey
It's piling up one by one
It's piling up one by one

You look bluer, do your do or die
But I ain't pull or push that pin in your side
A body split in two doesn't know how to sleep
A body split in two doesn't know how to sleep
You're standing on your head, while you're standing on your feet
A body split in two doesn't know how to sleep

It's a train wreck
You got me on the wrong track, honey
It's a train wreck
You got me on the wrong track, honey
It's piling up one by one
It's piling up one by one
It's piling up one by one...

Ticket Man

Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many tickets is the problem, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many problems is the ticket in my hand
Why don't you give it up and get it down
Spend half as much, kills you in half the time
Oh pull on the baby red number, make you hard to hit
Hard to stand and hard to sit around
Nothing's gonna kiss you like the blister gonna get you
From waiting it out

Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many tickets is the problem, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many problems is the ticket, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many tickets is the problem, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many problems is the ticket in my hand

Why don't you give it up and get it down
Spend half as much, kills you and half the town
Oh it's a little too easy to always be kind
But the longer it takes, the more you must find
It's a little too easy to always be kind
But the longer it takes, the more you must find

Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many tickets is the problem, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many problems is the ticket, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many tickets is the problem, man
Here's the ticket, what's the problem
Too many problems is the ticket in my hand 

Midnight Boom

U.R.A Fever

Walk you to the counter
What do you got to offer
Pick you out a soda
Look at you forever
Walk you to the water
Your eyes like a casino
You ain't born typical

Find a piece of silver
Pretty as a diagram
Go down to the Rio
Put it in my left hand
Put it in a fruit machine
Everyone's a winner
Laughing like a seagull

You are a fever
You are a fever
You ain't born typical
You are a fever
You are a fever
You ain't born typical

Living in a suitcase
Meet a clown, fall in love
Been dying to have you over
Clown around and break up
Take you to a jukebox
That's the situation
Pick you out a number
That's our arrangement

Dancing on the legs of a new-born pony
Left right left right
Keep it up son
Go ahead and have her
Go ahead and leave her
You only ever had her
When you were a fever

I am a fever
I am a fever
I ain't born typical
I am a fever
I am a fever
I ain't born typical

We are a fever
We are a fever
We ain't born typical
We are a fever
We are a fever
We ain't born typical
We are a fever
We are a fever
We ain't born typical
We are a fever
We are a fever
We ain't born typical

Cheap And Cheerful

I'm bored of cheap and cheerful
I want expensive sadness
Hospital bills, parole
Open doors to madness

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

I'm sick of social graces
Show your sharp-tipped teeth
Lose your cool in public
Dig that illegal meat

'Cause love is just a dialogue
You can't survive on ice-cream
You got to same needs as a dog

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)
It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)
It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)

It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)
It's alright (it's alright)
To be mean (to be mean)

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're boring baby when you're straight
I want you to be crazy
'Cause you're stupid baby when you're sane

Getting Down

It's going on five
I want you to know
My spirit's alive
I want you to know

I'm getting down with the awkward moments
I'm getting down with the sour kiss
I'm getting down with the rumours in the back of the car
I'm getting down with it

Signal when you get to the top
Signal when you want me
When you want me to stop
We could, we could crash
We could, we could, burn burn
We could take it
We could, we could take it take it in turns

Getting down
I'm getting down with your new vocation
I'm getting down with your cute cut wrist
I'm getting down with the kisses and cross-stitches on it
I'm getting down with it

Here's a message from my old coat pocket
My spirit's alive and I want you to know

I'm getting down with the young drunk lovers
I'm getting down with the one-way pact
I'm getting down with the city and the pity of it
I'm getting down with it

Last Day Of Magic

We’re two parties
Two parties ending

What if you move
What if you hide
There's only so much you can miss
Before we both collide

My little tornado
My little hurricano
Last day of magic
Where are you
My little tornado
My little hurricano

We’re two parties
Two parties ending

I'll be the man with the broom
If you'll be the guts of the room
And there's only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic
Where are you
My little tornado
My little hurricano
Last day of magic
Coming through
The eye of the storm
And I hold on to
My little tornado
My little hurricano

I'll be the man with the broom
If you'll be the guts of the room
And there's only so much you can hide
Before I corner you

Last day of magic
Put a hole right through
The eye of the storm
In a single room
My little tornado
My little hurricano
Calvary come
Calvary go
Calvary leave me alone, oh, oh, oh

My little serenado
My little cococaino
Last day of magic
Where are you
My little tornado
My little hurricano

Hook and line

With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I'm still blown away
With your hook and line I still blow away

Try your best in your heavy shape
Keep it quiet, keep it cool
Lipstick letters and souvenirs
Make a mockery of your fears

With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I'm still blown away
With your hook and line I still blow away

Try your best to make it matter
Tattoo it in the clouds above you
Nail it down with jealous bones
Till it goes like a feather off on it's own

With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I'm still blown away
With your hook and line I still blow away

A pawn
A shove
An eerie love
A whip
A crack
You won't come back

With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I'm still blown away
With your hook and line I still blow away

With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I still blow away
With your hook and line I'm still blown away
With your hook and line I still blow away

Black Balloon

Elevator straight into my skull
The escalator rises as it falls
I swear our jet is crashing in my mind
You can hold on but I wouldn't waste your time

Farewell my black balloon
Farewell my black balloon

I've stood in a thousand street scenes
Just around the corner from you
On the edge of a dream that you have
Has anybody ever told you, it's not coming true

Farewell my black balloon
Farewell my black balloon
Has the weather had its way with you
Farewell my black balloon
Has the weather had its way with you
Farewell my black balloon...

M.E.X.I.C.O.C.U

Running into trouble
Running into trouble
You've got heavenly eyes
Thousand highs

Always on a mission
It's not loving, it's not kissing
It's the heavenly ride
You still got wheels, kid

If I go missing
Don't you worry for me
I'm just writing
My side of the story

Just like Jackie
I'm biting my lips
Scoring my mind
With whatever I can find

I'm going down the coast
To M.E.X.I.C.O, see you
I'm going down the coast
To M.E.X.I.C.O, see you

I'm going down the coast
To M.E.X.I.C.O, see you

Sour Cherry

Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause it crossed my mind
It crossed my mind
Made my blood thump 7-8-9
Make my heart beat double time
Now I'm only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand

Shout when you wanna get off the ride
Shout when you wanna get off the ride
'Cause it crossed my mind
It crossed my mind
I'm a penny in a diamond mine
We could be movers
We could be shakers
If we could just shake something out of the blue
And get off the ride

Now I'm the only sour cherry on the fruit stand, right
Am I the only sour cherry on the fruit stand
If I'm the only sour cherry on your fruit stand right
Am I the only sour cherry on your fruit stand

G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
G-g-g-go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it’s over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over
Go go home it's over
G-g-g-go home, go home it's over over
Go go home it’s over

Alphabet Pony

He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony

Phoney monkey toy money
Lose end soda hands
Pink plastic jesus on the dashboard
Just saying

He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony
No fun not happy

Got no money need a friend
A volcano dish on a mountain-top to live in

He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony
He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony

Cancel sunday cancel monday
Don't look at me I've been
Running on a no-tomorrow
Road at great speed
Need a punch a pop a bang a different song
Like a nice new home
Needs a mean stray dog yeah

He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony
He's the alphabet pony
He's the alphabet pony

Oh we go up down up down
Up downtown again
We like the walk the talk don't stop
And fall into the quicksand
Sharp teeth dry heat
Can't breathe too many sins
And don't forget my cigarettes
And get something that we can drink

He's the alphabet pony
Oh he's the alphabet pony
He's the alphabet pony
He's the alphabet pony

What New York Used To Be

Coma comma drama come on
Draw it, scratch it, say it, say it
Make it to the bottom ladder climb it
Drop an apple off the top it stop it
I don't want to eat it
Need it, know it, force it, feed it, leave it, be it
Just keep it in its box

What easy used to be
What love used to be
What drugs used to be
What TV used to be
What music used to be
What luck used to be
What art used to be
What you used to be

Coma comma drama come on
Drawl your skin your mile longer
Love song sure it tells the future
Fingers crushed and run em' under water
Shark infested sea of secrets in the open fire
Beat it, don't believe it
Just keep it in its box

What easy used to be
What fun used to be
What dreaming used to be
What fame used to be

What the city used to be
What fast used to be
What low used to be
What New York used to be
What New York used to be
What New York used to be
What New York used to be
What New York used to be

Come, come, come on
Come, come, come on
???

Goodnight Bad Morning

The Speeds working I see it in everyone
Like a lost idea under lightbulb sun
Your eyes ready for take off melt in your hand
What a beautiful state we are in

The jailers in my mind are all dead
I love you so much, never forget
All of our secrets are coming undone
What a beautiful state we are in

Goodnight another bad morning
Goodnight another bad morning
Goodnight another bad morning
Goodnight another bad morning

Goodnight, another bad
Goodnight, another bad
Goodnight, another bad
Goodnight another bad morning

Blood Pressures

Future Starts Slow

You can holler, you can wail
You can swing, you can flail
You can thump like a broken sail
But I'll never give you up
If I ever give you up my heart will surely fail

And after all God can keep my soul
And England have my bones
But don't ever give me up
I could never get back up when the future starts so slow

No longing for the moonlight
No longing for the sun
No longer will I curse the bad I've done
For if there's a time when your feelings gone, I wanna feel it

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
(I don't mind)

There's a time for the second best
And there's a time when the feeling's gone
But it's hard to be hard I guess
When you're shaking like a dog

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
(I don't mind)

You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind

Satellite

Lost her behind the station
Lost her behind the moon
Operator, operator dial her back
Operator put me through
The satellite gave up the ghost too soon

Rising on the thermals
She's falling in and out the blue
Carried her off on a silver spoon

I've loved her too long
Don't take her too

Oh how he crossed, Old man fate
Your path and mine on a satellite
Oh the mess a little time makes to us
When time and place collide

Operator, operator dial her back
Operator, operator don't take her too

I've loved her too long
Don't love her too...

Heart Is A Beating Drum

Looking in the mirror
Looking back
A look of wild living
Bound to crack

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

Howling at the future
Won't you be fast and full
All the noise and hot crossed veins
You, you got in you

Send your love in a rampage
Give her everything you got
And when you come to hate her
Show her more than just a spark

Cause the heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating drum

And you feel like you been here
So many times before
It's not the door you're using
But the way you're walking through it

If you feel like you been here
So many times before
It's not the door you're using
But the way you're walking through it

Cause the heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

Nail In My Coffin

I am no better at this than you are
Unfinished business maybe, due love
I can't change myself into you dear
What you are to me is far too unclear

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing that I ain't ever gonna get back from

I am no better at this than you are
Loneliness never truly leaves me alone
I have made mistakes I can't take back home
I love you just not the way you want

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing that I ain't ever gonna get back from

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing that I ain't ever gonna get back from

Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Could be a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Could be a line I'm crossing that I ain't ever gonna get back from

Wild Charms

To the doting boys by your side
Riding roughshod on your starless nights
To she who played concertos, foul and black
Upon my heartstrings and never looked back
What became of those wild charms
The deep fry of the tide
The tug of the stars
How it stirs me, how it stirs me now
To think my fire burnt them out

DNA

When it came to pass
Glory passed me by
And fate with a single blow
Has custard pied me now
True I had my chance
True true true I had those wild charms for you
But oh oh oh oh how my fire burnt them out

And we will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it.

Your mind would never ache
When you were young and sound
The way your heart aches now
Your fears sent them all to ground
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you

We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you

We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it

Baby Says

Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the fairground lights

Baby says if ever you see skin as fair
Or eyes as deep and as black as mine
I'll know you're lying

Baby says a howl of romance I'll get
From all you sleeping dogs
You thugs of god
I'll get one yet

Baby says for all I've forsaken
Make something of all the noise
And the mess you're making
And all the time it's taken

Baby says there's death in these silver curls
They’ll break open jails

And send you diving for pearls
Without a care in the world

Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the pinball lights

And baby says a howl of romance I get
From all you sleeping dogs
You thugs of god
I'll get one yet

The Last Goodbye

It's the last goodbye, I swear
I can't rely on a dime-a-day love
That don't go anywhere

I'll learn to cry for someone else
I can't get by on an odds and ends love
That don't ever match up

I heard all you said
And I took it to heart

I won't forget, I swear
I have no regrets
For the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can't quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it
With my own two hands

I heard all you said
And I love you to death
I heard all you said
Don't say anything

It's the last goodbye, I swear
I can't survive on a half-hearted love
That will never be whole

Damned If She Do

She damned if she do
She damned if she don't
If history hang, hang, hangs her well
Her memory won't

It's been a procession of
Sweethearts passing through
Some of them left no trace at all
And some left her black and blue

But she come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs

She damned if she will
She damned if she won't
Some of them left in one piece
And some she damn near broke

Now I am no stranger to the strange
And all his ways
But what can be stranger than
To be stuck outside your cage

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her deathbed
She come alive when she on her deathbed

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her deathbed
She come alive when she on her deathbed

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying

You Don't Own The Road

You don't own the road boy
Better kick up a storm
You don't own the big city lights
Better carve out your own

You don't own the green pines,
The blue sky, or the smoke
You don't own the dust in your
Big brown eyes when you keep them closed

Yeah, steal them back for me love
Oh yeah, steal them back for me love, oh yeah

You don't own the road boy
And neither do I
You don't own the big city lights
Making my eyes cry

You don't own the green pines
So be careful where you lean
And when you're lost under the blue sky
Look down and you'll find me

Yeah, steal it back for me love
Oh yeah steal it back for me love, oh yeah

Come on over
If that's the way you feel
When you're lonesome steal it
Back when you're lonely
Back when you're lonely, back

You don't own the sadness son
See the tide just comes in
Guilt is played on the violin
By those who never cared to sing

Yeah, steal it back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Back for me love
Back for me love

Pots and Pans

I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking

I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

Ain't enough salt in the ocean
That care enough to keep you floating
Ain't a drop left in my tank
To move move move your dead weight

I ain't joking
You're so good
I ain't joking when I said
You're so good

I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking
To keep you cooking

I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn, dawns on you

ASH & ICE

Doing It To Death

Baby save it, we're wasted
I know we gotta slow it down
But when the waves come, you face them
And you know we can't stop it now

Head's up, we're in a dead club
Put your hands up
Do your dips and your drops and your whine up
We're hanging up
Double sixing it night after night
You copy you paste you lose
We're doing it to death
Doing it to death

Baby lately, the plans we're making
Are the shape of things that never come
Hold your horses, the light's up
Can you feel it coming back around

Listen up, it's picking up
Put your hands up
Do your kicks and your lips and your time's up
We're hanging up
Double six'ing the night 'cause tonight

We're doing it to death
Doing it to death

We're double sixing it
Night after night after night
We're double sixing it
Night after night after night
We're double sixing it
Night after night after night

Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death
Doing it to death...

Heart of a Dog

From sea to mountain valley
From flesh to palms a' swaying
Dreamers dreaming on
No matter what they're saying

I need you
Don't ask me why it is
I want strings attached
Unnatural as it feels

I'm loyal
Oh, oh
I'm loyal

From starry eyes colliding
From Mars to someone crying
I'm never far away
No matter what I'm hiding
You copy you paste you lose
I get lost
But I always come around
It's a strange fear
Allows me to be found

I'm loyal, oh oh, I'm loyal
I'm loyal, oh oh
I got the heart of a dog, hey

It's life or death why I chew through the chain
It don't matter my love's the same
Go so far but never long
Can't break the spell in my heart

I'm loyal, oh oh, I'm loyal
I'm loyal, oh oh
I got the heart of a dog

From bars to beds of laying
From boots of lead to changing
I'm hooked from deep inside
Call when you're ready 'cause I'm ready to ride

I'm loyal, oh oh
I'm loyal, oh oh
I got the heart of a dog

Hard Habbit to Break

You're really getting close to me
So far so close to me
So point me to a Yes No Yes No Yes
Don't tell me maybe

You think you're there to hold my hair
To come and drag me home
You think you're gonna dress me up from head to toe
And then I'll go
You copy you paste you lose
Well I'm a hard hard habit to break
I'm a hard hard habit to break

Your mind's playing tricks on me
You got me where you want me
I'm going left right left right left
Right through the city

And I can's get enough of the heat
And I can't shake it off in a beat
You gotta fix me up  or let me go
And I'll quit

It's a hard hard habit to break
It's a hard hard habit to break
Hard hard habit to break
It's a hard hard habit to break

It's a hard hard habit to break
It's a hard hard habit to break
Hard hard habit to break
It's a hard hard habit to break

What change, what change
Maybe when the lights fade, maybe it's my mistake

Bitter Fruit

Cut your branches at the root
That long have grown that bitter fruit
Cut your branches at the root
That only gave me bitter fruit
You copy you paste you lose
I was conceived in a red cage, from a wild love
I am the seed of a dead age, gone viral
Those feelings I've tried to shake, all my life long
But the demons I'm keeping are hard to face
When you hide them, so long

I gotta cut you at the root
I gotta save my soul from the bad in you
I gotta cut you through and through
You only ever gave me bitter fruit

Oh and it grew like a shockwave
And I was blindsided, oh oh
The fruit that your love gave
Poisoned my mind up, oh oh

I cut your branches at the root
I gotta save my soul from the things you do
I cut your branches through and through
But still I only taste that bitter fruit

Down to the bone
All my love was cut in a single blow
Gone, and I know
All my love was cut in the seed I sowed

I could pray, but can't you see
The kind of things I pray for are cursing me
I could pray, but can't you see
The kind of things I pray for
The kind of things I need

I cut your branches at the root
That only ever gave me bitter fruit
I cut your branches through and through
But still I only taste that bitter fruit

I could pray, but can't you see
The kind of things I pray for are cursing me
I could pray, but can't you see
The kind of things I pray for
The kind of things I need

Cut your branches at the root
That long have grown that bitter fruit
Cut your branches at the root
That only gave me bitter fruit

Cut your branches at the root
That long have grown that bitter fruit
Cut your branches at the root
That only gave me bitter fruit

Days Of Why And How

Something you're doing ain't doing me good
I can feel it in my blood
Thunderstruck
Wheel spun
I'll believe anyone
You copy you paste you lose
Always looking, never found
How I'm keeping my head down
These days of why and how, get so hard
I'm not saying another word

When I hear your name
It's like a freight train
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shaking me, off my tracks

The one acting a fool is not
I can feel it in my heart
Silence is the loudest shot
A train passing in the dark

All I do is wonder why
Why and how you leave me every night

When I hear your name
It's like a freight train
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shaking me, off my tracks

When I hear your name
It's like a freight train
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shaking me, off my tracks

When I hear your name
It's like a freight train
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shaking me, off my tracks

When I hear your name
It's like a freight train
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Shaking me, off my tracks

Let it drop

You give me the shakes
You give me the cold sweats
You're giving me reasons to turn my teardrops
Into death threats

You're going straight to machine
So I kiss my brothers
I never took off my chains
They never took my colors
You copy you paste you lose
Take 'em on in the morning love
I'm digging deep for my Midas touch
We could be chasing the waves
I know it isn't much

Let it drop
Let it drop

Let it drop
People don't make it easy
Let it drop
Let it drop drop drop
People don't make it easy
Let it drop

Isn't it strange
The way you move me so
You love me with hot hammers
And then your blood runs cold

For my next trick
Gonna be loke where she go
Make an exit
Like adios amigos

It got too complicated
Cool it down and refrigerate it
We could be lassoing the stars
But people don't make it easy

Let it drop
Let it drop drop
Let it drop

Let it drop
People don't make it easy
Let it drop
Let it drop drop drop
Let it drop
People don't make it easy

Let it drop
Let it drop
Let it drop drop drop
Let it drop
People don't make it easy

Hum For Your Buzz

Will you call on me
If I turn my back on you
Fall into the river
Just keep on swimming

I'm looking for
Answers to my wishes and my prayers
You missed most of the words
When I said them

I am a believer
Right on the brink of thinking
I can not be so easily
Brought to my knees
So baby, you need to

Row your boat
A little bit faster now
Or turn around and I'll be
A stranger in the crowd

I'm a believer now but I ain't thinking straight
And I ain't gonna wait for the sun to set
One more time

I am a believer
Right on the brink of thinking
I can not be so easily
Brought to my knees
So baby
You copy you paste you lose
Go for broke
Go lay lay yourself down on the road
Let hell pay your way
As you sit there and smoke
Drink and day dream

I'm a vision you looked for so long
At your door sweetheart
My ears are ringing, ring ringing
Like my mind is gone

I am a believer
But the received is off
Sat on the floor
The hum and the buzz
I can't take it no more

I am a believer
But the received is off
Sat on the floor
The hum and the buzz
I can't take it no more

Siberian Nights

I could whip you up like cream
I could drink your seven seas
Is that too close for comfort

I could make you come in threes
I'm half way to my knees
Am I too close for comfort

For the tyrants in a rut, I got a love
For the gutless dogs, I got a love
For the doomed youth, I got a love

Won't you tell me please
Why they got no love for me
Won't you tell me please
Why they show no love for me
You copy you paste you lose
I'll be charging through your dreams
Riding bare chest silver steed
Am I too close to the bone

Shake a little hup two three
I'm Jesus, rip my jeans
Am I too close for comfort

For the millionth time, I got a love
For the blue eyed boys, I got a love
For the cruel youth, I got a love

Won't you tell me please
Why they got no love for me
Won't you tell me please
Why they show no love for me

Won't you help me get through these Siberian nights
Won't you help me get through these Siberian nights
You know it's hard for me to be alone
Tomorrow we'll go back to our sides
But tonight I need some warmth

That Love

Will you or won't you cross that road in time
Will you or won't you outrun
What you know you must
You copy you paste you lose
It's over now
It's over now
That love you're in
Is fucked up

Will you or won't you land soflty down
Will you or won't you be around

It's over now
It's over now
That love you're in
Is all fucked up
That love is done

If you get a minute
You can find a whole day and think
Let somebody in that ain't
Cutting like a snake

The thump of the red blooded heart
Is trumped by the art of war
Try the truth and test it before
You lose sight of the shore

It's over now
It's over now
That love you're in
Is a fucking joke
That love

Impossible Tracks

I was carried away
I was carried away
I was moving too fast on impossible tracks
I was carried away

I was easily led
Because I'm easily led
By the moon, by the tide, by whatever you like
I'm just so easily led

Oh my shaking heart
You got me from the start
You got me good
Aim and take a shot
You got me til I drop
Like I knew you would

Oh you get what you give
I don't regret what I did
Well if a real live liar can set you on fire
Then don't you settle for it

Oh don't you take me all this way
To bring me back to earth one day
I'm gonna roll on back on impossible tracks
And get carried away

Oh my shaking heart
You got me from the start
You got me good
You aimed and then you shot
You got me on the spot
Like I knew you would

Oh my shaking heart
You got me from the start
You got me good
You aimed and then you shot
Now I'm coming apart
Like I knew I would
Like I knew I would

There's a full moon over Sunset
Got our feet in perfect stride
And we walk in perfect meter
While we hold our smiles inside
You copy you paste you lose
And we hold our smiles inside
Like we're holding back the tide
And we stride in perfect meter
Like the sun won't ever rise

Oh my shaking heart
You got me from the start
You got me good
You aimed and then you shot
You got me on the spot
I knew you would

Oh my shaking heart
You got me from the start
You got me good
You aimed and then you shot
Now I'm coming apart
Like I knew I would
I knew I would

Black Tar

One hit, one invention
You must pay your ransom
Love, lust, you're too handsome
Fairytales are fair game

The world is looking for you
Sharpening its blade
London's bloodthirsty
Paris is a vein, open
A vein on the pulse of mean

Big brushing out-winged sparrow
I'm gonna catch you by the hair of the night
Fortune's arrow
Prick quick to pick a fight
You copy you paste you lose
The world is tripping for you
Bidding on your blood
L.A. Catatonia
New York black tar runs, over
Runs over you for fun

Big brushing out-winged sparrow
Hot cooking all De Niro Light
Tucked, prim and primed
If chance were so divine, why

Coold thing go mad and crazy
Some dick is looking for a way
White screen field of daisies
Pull em up, but they all stay
Standing in your way
Stay, standing in your way

Echo Home

I'm flowing with the waters
I'm spinning into orbit
So won't you come on home
And make it alright

I'm drifting in the same old boat
With a different crew
So won't you come on home
And make it alright
Won't you echo back
And make it fine

Maybe you'll go out of your mind
You can lose it all if you wanna
Maybe you'll go out of mine
It's been so long

You can keep your own dear life
You can lose it all if you wanna
But I can't keep you out of mine, oh no

We were dancing to a beat of our own
Flying with our speakers blown
Oh won't you come on back
And make it alright

And if I take a turn for the worst
And I call you on the phone
Will you echo home when I call
Won't you echo back and make it alright
Won't you echo home and make me fine

Maybe you went out of your mind
You can lose it all if you wanna
Maybe you went out of mine
It's been so long

You can live your own dear life
You can lose it all if you wanna
But I can't let you out of mine, oh no
You copy you paste you lose
And it's a long long long long drop
From the rocks to the pearls, we got so lost
We got so lost, we got so lost
For so long

And it's a long long long long drop
From the rocks to the pearls, we got so lost
We got so lost, we got so lost
For so long, for so long, so long
For so long, oh

Maybe you went out of your mind
You can lose it all if you wanna
Maybe you went out of mine
It's been so long

You can live your own dear life
And you can lose it all if you wanna
But I can't let you out of mine, oh no

I'm flowing with the waters
I'm spinning into orbit
So won't you come on home
And make it alright
So won't you come on home
And make it fine

Whirling eye

Hollywood, 2 A.M
Questioning everything
Neon red, white and blue
Catching up with you
Got a dream, doesn't mean
You know what to do
You copy you paste you lose
You watch me like a hawk
Do you need what I got
You find yourself alone inside
A mirror and a kiss
What you want is hard to find
And it's hard to miss

Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on
Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on

76. High noon
Revving up your lead balloon
Cruisin' on Ventura fumes
When you need more than a smile
Traffic's rough, oh SOS
In your orbit of desire

Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on
Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on

Whirling, whirling, whirling, whirling
Eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye
Whirling, whirling, whirling, whirling
Eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye, eye

Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on
Get the vision, get the vision
Get the vision, come on

Baby's Eyes

I'm riding along
Along my baby's eyes
She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care
No reasoning with her man
No reason to give her man

When she comes to meet you
She waits it out, out on the corner
With her eyes on your shoulder
And just as you get near

See her smile disappear now
A smile disappears
Well she's on it again
Now now she is on the wind
She was just here now she's gone

She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care

I'm riding along
Along my baby's eyes
She stares and she don't care
Oh she stares and she don't care
No reason to give her man
No reasoning with her man
Oh when will she land
See how she ran

She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care
She stares and she don't care...

Blue Moon

( Future starts slow B-side )

Welcome to a blue moon in the sky
A cruel, shine of blue
Hear the thunder of life driving by guess it’s
Finally on the loose

And I smell too sweet
All the sycamore trees
As the branches collide with your thought
I think

And the neighbourhood cat is calling
He can't sleep
He says the oxygen in the needle and pin has,
Sprung a leak

Well he really took a chance
Crossed his heart hoping to die
He was young and he was happy
At the time, at the time

Seems to me like the cinema
Has returned to its old tricks
Magic loses all its magic
And you know what it really is

The young men who used to
Use the knuckles are gone
But the tadpoles keep on multiplying
Down in the swamp

When the pearly gates do open
Dragging their legs out of spite
Inside a woman sits to greet you
Welcome home, to the night

It’s the last motel
With electric she says
Take a seat while the maid goes on and
Cleans up your mess

Honey, it could take an hour
It could take all year
It could take a century
For your bad name to clear

Welcome to a blue moon in the sky
A cruel, shine of blue
Hear the thunder of life driving by guess it’s
Finally on the loose

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

Crazy

(Patsy Cline cover / Black Balloon EP)

I'm Crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue

You'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday
You'd leave me for somebody new

Worry
Why do I let myself worry
Wondering
What in the world did I do

Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying
And crazy for crying
And I'm crazy for loving you

Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I'm crazy for trying
And crazy for crying
And I'm crazy
For loving you

Dreams

(Fleetwood Mac cover)

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down

It's only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had and what you lost

Oh thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
They say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You'll know

Now here I go again
I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself

It's only me who wants to
Wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell

Dreams of loneliness like a heartbeat, drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had and what you lost
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know

Oh thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
They say, women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You'll know
You'll know

( Black Rooster EP )

Would you do this for me
Would you chew gum for me

I'm making this sound for you
Would you make this sound for me

Half Of Us

The night, after the night
After the night is gone
And after they're gone
After they're gone, they're gone

And half of us is lovers missing lovers
And half of us is lovers missing out

And after the night, after the night
The eye of the storm in your mouth and you're gone
And after they're gone, after they're gone, it's out

And half of us is lovers losing lovers
And half of us is lovers losing out

The heartbroken sound of my town
Beats the heartbreaking sound of your town

After they're gone, after they're gone
After they're gone, they're gone
A happy accident
The eye of the storm in your mouth
A happy house

And half of us is lovers missing lovers
And half of us is lovers missing out

Happy now
The heartbroken sound of my town
Beats the heartbreaking sound of your town

The heartbroken sound of my town
Beats the heartbreaking sound of your town…

I call it art

( Serge Gainsbourg Cover of "La chanson de slogan" / Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited LP )

I wonder, wondered, no wonder
The weakest, the cheapest, hangover
In the end, foe or friend, live apart
Call it hate, call it love, I call it art

A no good, a no one, a no show
A too much, perfection, to say no
In the end, foe or friend, live apart
Call it hate, call it love, I call it art

In the end, foe or friend, live apart
Call it hate, call it love, call it art

I wonder, I wondered, no wonder
The weakest, the cheapest, hangover
In the end, foe or friend, live apart
Call it hate, call it love, call it art

I'm Set Free

( The Velvet Underground Cover / Free Jimmy OST )

I've been set free and I've been bound
To the memories of yesterdays clouds
I've been set free and I've been bound

And now I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find a new illusion

I've been blinded but now I can see
What in the world has happened to me
The prince of stories who walks right by me

And now I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find a new illusion

I've been set free and I've been bound
Let me tell you what I've found
I saw my head laughing, rolling on the ground

And now I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find a new illusion

Jewel Thief

Jewel thief where do you get all those pretty necklaces
Jewel thief where do you get all those silver pistols
Jewel thief where do you get all those animal heads
With lovely posture you eat bread carefully chewing when they shot you dead
You look like a mannequin with your mouth full
Don't worry baby i'll take care of you
You got a million horses at your door
You got a feeling that you'll need a million more
I got a million horses of my own
In the evening one by one they carry me home
I'll get your telephone I'll run a comb through your dead thief hair
Tell them you're not home
I'll wear your pretty clothes
And shoot your stolen guns
Jewel thief you and I are gonna be best friends

Magazine

I took a little of the middle of a magazine
Wrote it out on a blank sheet
Signed my name and made the crease
It may be my greatest piece

I think I think it's gonna sell
Promise me you'll never tell
Trust me it will be a breeze
It's so easy to please

Ok stop, ok stop, ok, ok stop, ok stop, ok stop

Now everything's going really good
Since I left the neighborhood
Broken Window, no big deal
Most people think that I'm for real
I'm cool now I got the look
I think it's time to do a book
I read one that I really like
But it'll take some time to retype

Ok stop, ok stop, ok, ok stop, ok stop, ok stop
Ok stop, ok stop, ok, ok stop, ok stop, ok stop

So many parties to attend
I look great I can see no end
I think I think I got a steal
Everybody thinks that I'm for real

Ok stop, ok stop, ok, ok stop, ok stop, ok stop
Ok stop, ok stop, ok, ok stop, ok stop, ok stop

Night Train

( Midnight Boom I-tunes bonus track )

Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe
I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe

Bury my face with your birdly kisses

My hand on the breeze
Cut my hands kill me
Yeah let's go dancing
It ain't no broken bones
It ain't no broken hearts

I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
I'm an old child

Bury my face with your birdly kisses
Bury my face
It ain't no broken bones
It ain't no broken hearts

I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe
I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe
I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe
I'm an old child, I'm a cold child
Give me the heat me eat me eat me babe

?? for dinner
That's why some like a ?? bird
Or little girl singing with the trees

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

One Silver Dollar

( Marylin Monroe Cover )

One silver dollar
Bright silver dollar
Changing hands
Changing hands

And lustily rollin'
Wasted or stolen
Changing hands
Changing hands

Spent for a beer he's drinking
Won by a gambler's lost
Pierced by an outlaw's bullet
Lost in the blood red dust

One silver dollar
Worn silver dollar
Changing hands
Changing hands

Love is a shining dollar
Bright as a church bell's chime
Gambled and spent, and wasted
And lost in a dust of time

One silver dollar
Worn silver dollar
Changing hearts
Changing lives
Changing hands

Pale Blue Eyes

( The Velvet Underground Cover / Levi's Pioneer Sessions )

Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But mostly you just make me mad
Baby you just make me mad

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountain top
Thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything
I've had but couldn't keep
I've had but couldn't keep

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

If I could make the world as pure
And strange as what I see
I'd put you in the mirror
I put in front of me
I put in front of me

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Skip a life completely
Stuff it in a cup
She said money is like us in time
It lies but can't stand up
Down for you is up

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I do it once again
The fact that you are married
Only proves you're my best friend
But it's truly truly a sin

Linger on your pale blue eyes
Linger on your pale blue eyes

Passion Is Accurate

( Run Home Slow EP )

I engineered a heavy heart
You carried the weight of it
I engineered the awkward look
You carry a trace of it

My passion is accurate
My passion is accurate

I engineered the long silence
I engineered the bored kiss
I calculated the nights you missed
You carried the weight of it

My passion is accurate
My passion is accurate

I move in mathematician fashion
I move the problem around a fraction
My passion is accurate
You carried the weight of it

My passion is accurate
My passion is accurate
My passion is accurate
My passion is accurate

Restaurant Blouse

(Album: If the 21st century didn't exist it would be necessary to invent it)

Music, coat hand, that's good slamming
Slamming crawl down up my head
Hockey sticks to my dead blood
Look man, I don't want a dollar

Drive her a restaurant blouse
Into his hotel house
Feeling up the walls and then
Covering his head

Heard you tell him she was evil
Grew up in an army crew and
Skeleton, bad things and partners
Under blankets that never mood

The minute you would leave
Our hopes just got up
She was the loneliest baby
She was the coldest baby

No shame on the highway
In her tight, white driving gloves
Momma she was a sweet demon
She got the devil moving

Her man on the pier said,
"My fucking car's in there"
We could see her under water
We could in the rearview mirror

Music, coat hand, that's good slamming
Slamming crawl down up my head
Hockey sticks to my dead blood
Look man, I don't want a dollar

Drive her a restaurant blouse
Into his hotel house
Feeling up the walls and then
Covering his head

Caught a ride out to the desert
Dry his body in the sand
But he had a pistol in his pocket
Got a hand gun in his pants

The birds know what that means
Way high in the trees
They fly like helicopters
They want the body

Stretching, confused
Deep, deep down, we're in his veins
Hard ride is part of his traffic
Takes time up in his brains

Take your pretty eyes off
My necklace sister wears
Your voice comes in baby
Ain't got no choices left

Run home slow

You lay with the dogs
You lay with the dogs
You like it enough, man
You lay with the dogs
Chewy fingers riding your mouth
(?) twenty hours just away from the sun (?)

It's easily done my friend
It's easily done my friend

And you're wired for the night
And you run home slow
And you're wired for the night
And you run home slow

You lay with the dogs, man
You lay with the dogs
A little too long, man
You lay with the dogs
???
For twenty hours to take you run home

It's easily done my friend
Just take it and run my friend
It's easily done
It's easily done
I'd easily do it again

And you wired for the night
And you run home slow
When you hollar and cry
And you run home slow
And you're hit and you're down
And you run home slow
Little pony

Took a cherry, took a twenty
Took my skin and took my bone
Took a car and took a hit
And took myself far away from home

Took your card and took your messages
And took a look and then
Took a walk and turned around
And took a look again
You took my boots, you took my keys
And took a twenty took a ten
Took your calls and your warning about calling again

And you wired for the night
And you run home slow
When you hollar and cry
And you run home slow
And you're hit and you're down
And you run home slow
Little pony

It's easily done my friend
Just take it and run my friend
It's easily done
It's easily done
I'd easily do it again

And you wired for the night
And you run home slow
When you hollar and cry
And you run home slow
And you're hitch and you're white
And you run home slow
Little pony

Took your card and took your messages
And took a look and then
Took a walk and turned around
And took a look again
You took my boots, you took my keys
And took a twenty took a ten
Took your calls and your warning about calling again

And you wired for the night
And you run home slow
And you wired for the night
And you run home slow

And you wired for the night
And you run home slow
Little pony, little pony
Little pony, little pony

Search For Cherry Red

( Jonathan Fire Eater Cover )

In every car that passes me on the street
I search for the particular face
The lipstick trembles under boomlights
The lipstick my own brothers only trace

Was the birthday birthday ashtray
Carried all along this way now
It was a gift from my little sister
On the very same day they took her away

And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside your head
And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside

In Hollywood I got the phone call
That made my heart and my limosine stall
Falling down in the hotel hall again
Little drunk from the Warners' Christmas ball
Cut by love and cut by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade
Cut by love and cut by switchblade
He's been gone nearly half a decade

I still remember my brother
I see his face on the billboards
And the polaroids that stayed on my pillow 'til they faded

And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside your head
And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside

And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside your head
And it's painted cherry red, cherry red now
All your dreams are cherry red inside

Sugar Baby

Got no sugar baby now
It's all I can do for to see peace with you
And I can't get along this a-way
Oh, i can't get along this a-way

All I can do, all I can say
Gonna send you to your mama next payday
Send you to your mama next payday

Who'll rock the cradle, who'll sing the song
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone
Who'll rock the cradle when I'm gone
I'll rock the cradle, I'll sing the song
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone
I'll rock the cradle when you're gone

Oh I've got no honey baby now
Oh I've got no honey baby now
i got no sugar baby now

Said all I can say, all I can do
And I can't make a living with you
Can't make a living with you

Superpowerless

Take a drink of my red wine
I've got enough to go around
Take a drink of mine
I've got enough to go around

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed

Come into my shipwreck
Half the time we just sit around
Talking shit over sour milk
Waiting for the rain to come down

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, ‘til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

Take the weight off my mind
I’ve got enough to slow you down
Take a cut of mine-oh-mine
I've got enough to go around

Leave me when you're giving in
When you're last little lie is out
I'll show you just how dark it gets
When the sun really does go down

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're dead, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're dead, 'til you're superpowerless

Everything is okay
If everything stays the same

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

'Til you're drunk, 'til you're high
'Til you're fake, ‘til you're crushed
‘Til you're red, 'til you're superpowerless

The Passenger

(Iggy Pop - Alison Mosshart Solo for Sons Of Anarchy OST)

I am the passenger and I ride and I ride
I ride through the city's backsides
I see the stars come out of the sky
Yeah, the bright and hollow sky
You know it looks so good tonight

I am the passenger
I stay under glass
I look through my window so bright
I see the stars come out tonight
I see the bright and hollow sky
Over the city's ripped backsides
And everything looks good tonight

Singing la la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la, la la

Get into the car
We'll be the passenger
We'll ride through the city tonight
We'll see the city's ripped backsides
We'll see the bright and hollow sky
We'll see the stars that shine so bright
Stars made for us tonight

Oh, the passenger
How, how he rides
Oh, the passenger
He rides and he rides
He looks through his window
What does he see
He sees the sign and hollow sky
He sees the stars come out tonight
He sees the city's ripped backsides
He sees the winding ocean drive
And everything was made for you and me
All of it was made for you and me
'Cause it just belongs to you and me
So let's take a ride and see what's mine

Singing la la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la, la la

Oh the passenger
He rides and he rides
He sees things from under glass
He looks through his window side
He sees the things that he knows are his
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He sees the city sleep at night
He sees the stars are out tonight
And all of it is yours and mine
And all of it is yours and mine
So let's ride and ride and ride and ride

Oh, oh, singing la la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la, la la

Singing la la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la, la la

La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la
La la la la lala la la, la la

The Void

Flying too close to the sun
Is this where the earthquakes come from
Walked on with helium legs
Weigh yourself, see what you've done

Every looker keeps you lookin'
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this
Cruising through the cars
Now will you, what will you fly over us next

Been 'round, I seen the mess
Saluted no replace
There's nothing here for you to know
Beauty in the belly of zero

Every looker keeps you lookin'
Back and forth, lights are patient
Cruising through the cars
Now how will you
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this

Every looker keeps you lookin'
Cruising through the cars now
How will you, what will you fly over us next
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this

What's it taste like
What's it taste like now
What's it taste like
What's it taste like now

Every looker keeps you lookin'
Cruising through the cars now
How will you, what will you fly over us next
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this

What will you fly over us next
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this
What will you fly over us next
No one ever told me there'd be scenes like this

'Til The End Of The Night

( The Stooges cover / James Williamson feat. Alison Mosshart / Re-Licked Project )

I am so cold
Deep in my soul
Ain't got no love
Even at home

The passion, my darling
Help me complete
I need somebody
Under my sheets

'Cause I love you 'til the end of the night
I love you 'til the end of the night

I am so lonely
I am so blue
Hey there, honey
What about you

I am alone
Give me a pray
Into my love life
Bring it my way
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
'Cause I love you 'til the end of the night
I love you 'til the end of the night

I love you
I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you

I am alone
I am so cold
I got nobody
Even my soul

I love my life
Spent in this way
Hey there, my darling
Hear what I say

I love you 'til the day that you die
I love you 'til the day that you die

Venus In Furs

( The Velvet Underground Cover )

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me

I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girlchild in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells
Please don't forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

Weedkiller

One, two, three

All I need
All I need
All I need is one drop of weedkiller

You were once the rose I wanted
You were once a rose to me
You've become a twisted tree now
You've become an ugly beast

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All I need
Is a drop of weedkiller

Oh you were my badge of honour
Oh you were my favourite one
But you've become a sour poison
You've become my big problem

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

Now I'm done trying to please you
Oh lord I know you'll never be
And if love was wrong to feed you
Maybe death is what you need

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

All I need (all I need)
All I need (all I need)
All i need is one drop of weedkiller

Willow Weep For Me

(Ann Ronell / Baby Says EP)

Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bend your branches green along the stream that runs to sea
Listen to my plea
Listen willow and weep for me

Gone my lover's dream
Lonesome as can be
Gone and left me here to weep my tears into the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

Whisper to the wind and say that love has sinned
Left my heart a-breaking and making a moan
Murmur to the night and hide its starry light
So ? will hear me sighing and crying all alone

Weeping willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall
Hear me willow and weep for me

You Don't Love Me (No No No) / Steppin' Razor

(Dawn Penn cover / Peter Tosh cover / Live at Radio One BBC)

No no no
You don't love me
And I know now

No no no
You don't love me
And I know now

'Cause you left me, baby
And I got no place to go now
I'm like a walking razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
I'm like a steppin' razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous

No no no
I'd do anything to stay, boy

No no no
I'd do anything to stay, boy

'Cause if you asked me, baby
I'll get on my knees and pray, boy
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'm like a walking razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
I'm like a steppin' razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
I'm like a walking razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
I'm like a steppin' razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
If you wanna live
Treat me good
If you wanna live, live, live
Treat me good

I'm like a walking razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
I'm like a steppin' razor
Don't you watch my size
I'm dangerous
No no no
You don't love me
And I know now

No no no
You don't love me
And I know now

'Cause you left me, baby
And I got no place to go now
