Face Down
It's true we walk in disbelief
Clutching to our faded glory
Trusted me but I'm a thief
Get down on your knees before me

Worlds collide hate fills my mind
Tension rising no surrender
The street's a place where love is dying
All hail to thee thy legal tender

Yes
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down

Yeah
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down

At night the vipers rip my flesh
The bitch from hell is feeding
Scratch my wounds to keep them fresh
She likes'em young and bleeding

Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down

Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down

Good and hate fear and shame
Wasted our disaster
Cuts like cancer in my brain
Man now he's your master

Now you're gonna end up face down, yeah
Now you're gonna end up face down, face
Now you're gonna end up face down, down
Now you're gonna end up face down

Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Now you're gonna end up face down
Fucking face down
 
 
No Crime
You want your cake and eat it
Better eat it on your own
'Cause I won't be there listening
While you glitter on your throne

I've pleaded with you a thousand times
Still it's not enough
I've spilled my blood there's too much pain
I'm fed up of hanging tough
It brings me down
It brings me down

You can call me crazy, girl
That's no crime
I'll admit I'm flaky and a drag sometimes
Always hated stupid rules
That's no crime
Not immaculate conception
That's no crime
That's no crime

You're an expert on integrity
You always want it right
Impeccable divine pedigree
You glow with neon light

I'm drowning in your swamp of love
I'm fighting just to breathe
Like to love you baby but you know I've got to leave
Down, it brings me down

You can call me crazy girl
That's no crime
I'll admit I'm lazy and a drag sometimes
Always hated stupid rules
That's no crime
Not immaculate conception
That's no crime

That's no crime
It brings me down
It brings me down

You can call me crazy girl
That's no crime
I'll admit I'm flaky and a drag sometimes
Always hated stupid rules
That's no crime
Not immaculate conception
That's no crime

Just love me for my attitude
You could change your mind
Yeah I'm a low life scum and sometimes rude
That's no crime

As a matter of fact your blazing temper
Twists my mind
You gotta learn humility and draw the line
That's no crime
 
 
Long Time Dead
When I came down to your riverside
And saw you standing there
Pocketful of moonbeams
You had henna in your hair

And I never felt so lonely
Got the feeling I can't shed
Yeah, it might seem like a premonition
But you're a long time dead

Gonna be a long time dead
Misery the devil's in my head

The seasons had already turned
The wind began to howl
A change of fortune is what I need
And there was little doubt

That they had never heard my testimony
Not a single word I said
Yeah, the judge he whispered in my ears
Gonna be a long time dead

Gonna be a long time dead
Misery the devil's in my head

Took you to your riverside
And saw you standing there
Pocketful of moonbeams
You had henna in your hair

And I never felt so lonely
Got the feeling I can't shed
And it might seem like a premonition
But you're a long time dead

Gonna be, gonna be a long time dead
Long time dead
 
 
Kill That Girl
Lies, only lies
Lies, dirty lies

That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you

Mine, all the time
That's all I get from you
That's all I get from you
Oh

I wanna kill that girl
I wanna kill that girl
I wanna take her down to the underworld
Oh, oh

Love, your love
Love, sour love

Now that's no good for me
Now that's no good for me
Anyone can see
That's no good for me

Take, only take
Yeah, that's your last mistake
Yeah, that's your last mistake
Oh

I wanna kill that girl
I wanna kill that girl
I'm gonna slid her down to the underworld
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Walkie round the garden
Like a teddy bear
Take a piece of misha
While she's lying bare

Lies, only lies
Lies, dirty lies

That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you
That's all I hear from you

Mine, all the time
That's all I get from you
That's all I get from you
Oh

I wanna kill that girl
I wanna kill that girl
I wanna take her down to the underworld
I'm gonna kill that girl
I'm gonna kill that girl
 
 
Fade Away
Come to a land that's many miles and years away
A land of such enchantment, words could never say
A world of mystery pleasures undenied
Come to this land of mine and walk close by my side

Close your eyes, close your eyes
And sail away
Wishing well cast a spell
And let's away

Come to a place that's hidden just beyond the sky
No need to ask me if this love will ever die
No past regret, no future near shall make you slave
I will be true to you from far beyond the grave

Close your eyes, close your eyes
And fade away
Shed the coil, no need to toil
Come far away

Close your eyes, close your eyes
And fade away
Don't forget about
Don't forget about
Don't forget about
Don't forget about me

Pale crimson lips abound with eyes of coral blue
A bed of rose and sage, these things I give to you
And woe betide the one who doubts and loses heart
Come let's away and we shall never part

Close your eyes, close your eyes
And sail away
Wishing well cast a spell
And let's away

Oh
Oh
Oh, oh
Oh
Oh
 
 
Tarantula
(Instrumental)
 
 
Nothing Better to Do
Well it was raining that December
I was turning 23
On my way to Hollywood
Via Tennessee

I was looking for adventure
I was hooked on LSD
I was dreamin' bout the girls
That were goin' down on me

I'll just stay and spend the night with you
'Cause I know you ain't got nothing better to do

Well I was feeling pretty thin
It was lookin' pretty grim
Got a herd of hurdy gurdies
At the Rainbow Bar & Grill

Well she ain't too fuckin' pretty
But she ain't my fuckin' wife
As long as I don't end up
On the back side of her knife

I'll just stay and spend the night with you
'Cause I know you ain't got nothing better to do, yeah

So I hooked up with a band
Second baddest in the land
Eating sushi in Oklahoma
Smokin' green bud in Japan

But the wheels they keep on turnin'
20 people in the crowd
But I love to hear'em scream
When we're bringin' down the house

I'll just stay and spend the night with you
'Cause I know you ain't got nothing better to do
Ooh, hoo, hoo

I ain't got nothin' better to do
You ain't got nothin' better to do
I ain't got nothin' better to do
You ain't got nothin' better to do
Ooh, hoo, hoo

We ain't got nothin' better to do
We ain't got nothin' better to do
 
 
Chasing the Dragon
Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon

Standing on the edge of reason
Sailing through my dream
Colors of a hundred seasons
Nothing's as it seems

Sand is sweet and love is blue
Rainbows and the moon
Destiny unfolds her arms
And laughter fills my tomb

And I felt the sun's heat upon my wings
But could no stop myself from flying higher
Chasing, winding, sliding chase the dragon
Morphia desire

Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon

And I found myself in a better time
A rose and a velvet glove
Seven seas of mystery
Gifts of gold and love

Silence screams within my head
The dragon calls my name
It gives me comfort, gives me peace
And takes away my pain

And I looked into the eye of the needle
I felt the amber flow through my veins
I ride the white horse

Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon

And I felt the sun's heat upon my wings
And I could not stop myself flying higher
Chasing, winding, sliding chase the dragon
Morphia desire

Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon
Chasing the dragon
 
 
Killing Machine
Yes

Make your move and make it fast
Do it right, could be your last
Iron black, cold steel heart
To tear your fucking world apart

On my killing machine
My, my killing machine
My, my killing machine
Take you to the brink of madness

It's a killing machine
Like you've never seen
It's a killing machine
Leaves a wake of hate and sadness

Moves stealth-like through the night
Leaves nothing else in sight
Psycatronic suicide
In search of genocide

Knows nothing else but hate
Is made to decimate
Shall roam the world in anger
Till nothing else is standing

On my killing machine
My, my killing machine
My, my killing machine
Take you to the brink of madness

It's a killing machine
Like you've never seen
It's a killing machine
Leaves a wake of hate and sadness, yeah

I shall give death my kiss
I rule supreme in anger I dream

Make your move and make it fast
Do it right, could be your last
Iron black, cold steel heart
To tear your fucking world apart

My, my killing machine
My, my killing machine
My, my killing machine
Take you to the brink of madness

It's a killing machine
Like you've never seen
It's a killing machine
Leaves a wake of hate and sadness
 
 
I'd Love to Change the World
(by Ten Years After.)
Everywhere is
Freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies
Tell me where is sanity

Tax the rich
Feed the poor
Till there are no
Rich no more

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you

Population
Keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding
Still more feeding hoakum

Life is funny
Skies are sunny
Bees make honey
Who needs money, no not for me

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
All right

World pollution
No solution
Institution
Revolution

It's black an' white
Rich or poor
It's them or us
Stop the war

I'd love to change the world
But I don't know what to do
So I'll leave it up to you
 
 
Who's in Control (Let 'Em Roll)
There's an anger on these streets, I see the frustration
Our lives are withered like an old man's face
With only one sun from which to seek shelter
If we could stand being stuck in this place

Oh, I don't wanna hear about
Everybody's tellin' me
Can we just stop this screamin'?

Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control
Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control

One hungry mouth to feed, it could be your brother
Too many politicians out on the take
Three times as many houses losin' their holy
Forgive us Lord, there's too much money to make

I don't wanna hear about
Everybody's tellin' me
Can we just stop this screamin'?

Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control
Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control

I don't know what to do, I don't know where to turn
I see my lost horizon face in a setting sun
I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder why
A cloud of diesel smoke consumes my sky

I don't wanna hear about
Everybody's tellin' me
Can we just stop this screamin'?

Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control
Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control

Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control
Let'em roll, now I wonder
Let'em roll away, who's in control

Who's in control?
 
 
I'm the One
Hey

Some people think he's crazy
There's something not quite right about this child
The way he wears his hair the way he walks around
You know there is something wild

I guess I'm not the setting kind
My wheels have gotta turn
Silent night is quite all right
But I prefer to burn

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

The reputation of my deeds began to spread
Around from town to town
Men bequeathed me gifts of gold
Women laid their naked bodies down

They called me Son of Lucifer
They called me special one
I don't care 'bout none of that
I drown'em as they come

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

They tied me to the ship of fools
And cast me out upon a raging sea
For forty nights I sailed alone solitude
It was my destiny

On my return the elders knew
That nothing could be done
So if it's something strange you seek
Then baby I'm the one

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

I'm the one
I'm the one

I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want

I'm the one you want
Want
 
 
Why Ain't I Bleeding
Sometimes I think it's all been a dream
The people I've met places I've seen
Lovers who've sailed through my arms and my bed
And footprints of angels where devils won't tread

And it really makes me smile when I turn back the years
And cherish the laughter, remember the tears
The man I am now is not the man I was then
As time goes by I'll tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
If I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets, I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Hard times and many a tear
I needed some shelter, needed my bed
Rats in the cellar screams in my head
I look in the mirror, I look like I'm dead

I was a king of the road, rhythm and blues
Starry-eyed losers drawn in tattoo's
And the man I am now is not the man I was then
As time goes by, I tell you my friend

That I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
But if I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets and I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?

And I'm drunk right now and I need a cigarette
I wish I know some way to forget
But if I'm bound for hell 'cause of the shape I'm in
I don't have regrets, I won't change a thing

Why ain't I bleeding?
'Cause I feel so much pain
Why ain't I bleeding?
Some things never change

Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?
Why ain't I bleeding?
 
 
Kiss of Death
I watched you burn your hand in my flame
Tempting fate again and again
And faith is not enough
Something's gotta change
Where is the love without pain?

Riding on a homebound train
Ticket to a place in the sun
Like a villain on the run
Train ain't got going home
Don't turn your back on a loaded gun

Well I'm sorry darling, I must confess
And as much as I need your caress
You'll keep taking till your very last breath
So put your arms around me
Leave me with your kiss of death

Crying out your heart in the rain
Pouring it all down the drain
When the pain takes control
Touch leaves you cold
It's better sometimes not to pray

Well, I guess that's just the way that it goes
Why love dies nobody knows
But I'll love you till my very last breath
Don't say a word
Just leave me with your kiss of death

Well, they told me that you left yesterday
Death is just a heartbeat away
When we both reach the end
Together ascend
Never to be parted again

Oh well, I'm sorry darling I must confess
And as much as I need your caress
You'll keep taking till your very last breath
Put your arms around me
Leave me with your kiss of death

Well, I guess that's just the way that it goes
Why love dies no one knows
But I'll love you till my very last breath
Don't say a word
Just leave me with your kiss of death
 
 
Death in America
Who shot the President
Who pulled the plug
Our truth and justice
Swept under the rug
Just like a time bomb
Gonna explode
A new reality
Watch it corrode

Just another
Death in America

Another incident
Media lies
Our killers walk the streets
Where time alibis
So much you're taught
Who says
Crime doesn't pay
Who runs the syndicate
Who's in the shade

Just another
Just another
Just another
Just another
Death in America

I shot the President
I pulled the plug
Our truth and justice
Under the rug
I'm like a time bomb
Gonna explode
A new reality
Watch it corrode

Just another
Just another
Just another
Just another
Death in America
 
 
Empire Down
We live in a land where justice is dying
The rich are getting richer
And the poor are multiplying
Seems like corruption's got us all in a vice
Yeah if think that I'm crazy
Then you better think twice

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down

An innocent man is wrongly accused
A woman and child are badly abused
It ain't just a matter of who's right or wrong
'Cos who pays the piper
Calls the song

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down

I see the end of the constitution
Word on the street is revolution
No I can't look away from this suffering hate
I think we're aware that it's much too late
All the good men are either dead or gone
It's time to be counted
Time to be strong

I'm watching the empire go down
Down, down, watching the empire go down
