Fuel

Gimme fuel
Gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire

Turn on, I see red
Adrenaline crash and crack my head
Nitro junkie, paint me dead
And I see red

One hundred plus through black and white
War horse, Warhead
Fuck 'em man, white knuckles tight
Through black and white

Oohh, On I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And then I burn
Churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel
Gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire

Turn on beyond the bone 
Swallow future, spit out home 
Burn your face upon the crome 
Yeah! 
 
Take the corner, join the crash, 
Headlights, Headlines 
Another Junkie lives too fast 
Yeah lives way too fast, fast, fast, woah-oh!

Oohh, On I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And then I burn
Churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel
Gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire

Ooh! Gimme fuel....
Gimme fire....
My desire....

Oohh, On I burn
Fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And then I burn
Churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Gimme fuel 
Gimme fire 
Gimme that which I desire 
Ooh 
 
On I burn!!


The Memory Remains

Fortune, fame
Mirror, vain
Gone insane
But the memory remains

Heavy rings on fingers wave
Another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd, cry the nowhere tears of honor
Like twisted vines that grow
Hide and swallow mansions whole
Dim the light of an already faded prima donna

Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane....
Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane
But the memory remains 

Heavy rings hold cigarettes
Up to lips that time forgets
While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back
And can't the band play on?
Just listen, they play my song
Ash to ash
Dust to dust
Fade to black

Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane....
Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane
But the memory remains 

Drift away 
Fade away 
Little tin goddess 
 
Ash to ash 
Dust to dust 
Fade to black 
 
Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane....
Fortune, fame 
Mirror vain 
Gone insane 
But the memory remains 
 
Ash to ash 
Dust to dust 
Fade to black 
The memory remains 
 
Yeah 
Faded prima donna yeah, yeah 
 
(solo) 
Dance little tin goddess dance

The Unforgiven II

Lay beside me, tell me what they've done
Speak the words I wanna hear, to make my demons run
The door is locked now, but it's open if you're true
If you can understand the me, then I can understand the you

Lay beside me, under wicked sky
Through black of day, dark of night
We share this paralyze
The door cracks open, but there's no sun shining through
Black hearts scarring darker still, but there's no sun shining through
No there's no sun shining through
No there's no sun shining.....

   What I've felt, what I've known
   Turn the pages, turn the stone
   Behind the door, should I open it for you?
   What I've felt, what I've known
   Sick and tired, I stand alone
   Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you
   Or are you unforgiven too?

Lay beside me, this won't hurt I swear 
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she'll never love again 
She lay beside me, But she'll be there when I'm gone 
Black heart scarring darker still, but she'll be there when I'm gone      
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone      
Dead sure she'll be there...    

Lay beside me, tell me what I've done 
The door is closed, so are you're eyes 
But now I see the sun, now I see the sun 
Yes now I see it.....

   What I've felt, what I've known 
   Turn the pages, turn the stone 
   Behind the door, should I open it for you.... 
   What I've felt, what I've known 
   Sick and tired, I stand alone 
   Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one  who waits, the one who waits for you.... 
 
   Oh what I've felt, what I've known 
   Turn the pages, turn the stone 
   Behind the door, should I open it for you.... (So I dub thee unforgiven....) 

   Oh, what I've felt.... 
   Oh, what I've known.... 
 
   I take this key (never free...) 
   And I bury it (never me...) in you 
   Because you're unforgiven too.... 
 
   Never free.... 
   Never me.... 
   'Cause you're unforgiven too.... 


Better Than You

I look at you, then you me 
Hungry and thirsty I wait 
Holding the lion's share 
Holding the key 
Holding me back 'cause I'm striving to be

   Better than you
   Better than you
   Better than you
   Better than you

Lock horns, I push and I strive 
Some how I feel more alive 
Bury the need for it 
Bury the seed 
Bury me deep when there's no will to be

   Better than you
   Better than you
   Better than you
   Better than you

Oh, can't stop this train from rollin' 
Oh, nothing brings me down 
No, can't stop this train from rollin', no, no, no, no, no, 
No, no, forever only no... 

Oh, can't stop this train from rollin' 
Oh, you can't take it down 
No, never stop this locomotion, no, no, no, no, no, no, 
No, you can't bring it down 'cause I'm 
 
   Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Oooh Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Much Better Than You  
   Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Oh Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Better Than You  
   Better Than You
   Better Than  
   Better Than  
   Better Than  
   Better Than You 
 
Can't stop this train from rollin' 
 
Forever on and on and on
Forever on and on, on  

   Better Than You  
   Yeah  
   Better Than You 


Slither

   Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them 
   Haven't I seen you here before?

Carpe Diem Baby

Hit dirt 
Shake tree 
Split sky 
Part sea 
 
Strip smile 
Lose cool 
Bleed the day 
And break the rule
 
Live to win 
Dare to fail 
Eat the dirt 
And bite the nail

Then make me miss you.....
Then make me miss you.....

   So wash your face away with dirt 
   It don't feel good until it hurts 
   So take this world and shake it 
   Come squeeze and suck the day 
   Come carpe diem baby

Draw Lead 
Piss wine 
Sink teeth 
All mine 
 
Stoke fire 
Break neck 
Suffer through this 
Cheat on death 
 
Hug the curve 
Lose the time 
Tear the map 
And shoot the sign

Then make me miss you.....
Then make me miss you.....

   It don't feel good until it hurts

Where the Wild Things

So wake up sleepy one.....
It's time to save your world.....

Steal dreams and give to you
Shoplift a thought or two
All children touch the sun
Burn fingers one by one.....by one

Will this earth be good to you
Keep you clean or stained through

   So wake up sleepy one.....
   It's time to save your world.....
   You're where the wild things are.....
   Toy soldiers off to war.....

Big eyes to open soon 
Believing all under sun and moon 
But does heaven know you're here? 
And did they give you smiles or tears.....No, no tears

Will this earth be good to you
Keep you clean or stained through

   So wake up sleepy one.....
   It's time to save your world.....
   You're where the wild things are.....
   Toy soldiers off to war.....

(Backing Vocals)
You swing your ?ass all down? 
Call to arms the trumpets sound 
Toy horses start the charge 
Robots, chessmen standing guard
We Shall Never Surrender!!!!  
Hand puppets storm the base  
Flags up now cannons rage  
Hand puppets storm the base  
Flags up now cannons rage  
All clowns head for the rear  
Slingshots fire to the air  
All clowns head for the rear  
Slingshots fire to the air  
Slip into the edge of death  
Crossfire to the marionettes 
Slip into the edge of death  
Crossfire to the marionettes 
We Shall Never Surrender!!!! 

All children touch the sun 
Burn your fingers one by one 
Will this earth be good to you?

Prince Charming

It's a black cloud over head, that's me  
And the poison ivy chokes the tree, again it's me  
I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street, you walk on by  
I'm the little boy that pushes hard, and makes him cry

There's a dirty needle in your child, ha ha, stick me  
An empty bottle's still in hand still dead, still me
I'm the suit and tie that bleeds the street, and still wants more  
I'm the 45 that's in your mouth, I'm a dirty, dirty whore

   Yeah look it's me  
   The one who can't be free  
   Much too young to focus 
   But to old to see 
 
   Hey look it's me  
   What no one wants to see  
   See what you brought this world  
   Just what you want you want to see  
   Hey ma, hey ma look it's me

Yeah, he wants to become father now, me, again me  
The marks inside your arms, spell me, spell only me 
I'm a nothing face that plants the bomb, and stroles away  
I'm the one who doesn't look quite right, as children play

   Yeah look it's me  
   The one who can't be free  
   Much too young to focus 
   But to old to see 
 
   Hey look it's me  
   What no one wants to see  
   See what you brought this world  
   Just what you want you want to see  
   Hey ma, hey ma look it's me

Look up to me,  
What to be and what to fear 
Look up to me  
Look it's me, at what you hear  
See right through me  
See the one who can't be free  
See right through me  
Look it's me what no one wants to see  
 
Hmmm, now, see the black cloud up ahead, that's me  
And this poison ivy chokes the tree, again it's me  
And I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street, you walk on by  
I'm the little boy that pushes, pushes, makes him cry  
 
   Yeah look it's me  
   The one who can't be free  
   Much too young to focus 
   But to old to see 
 
   Hey look it's me  
   What no one wants to see  
   See what you brought this world  
   Just what you want you want to see  
   Hey ma, hey ma look it's me
 
Hey ma, hey ma look it's me


Low Man's Lyric

My eyes, seek reality
My fingers, seek my veins
There's a dog, at your back step
He must come in from the rain

I fall, cause I've let go
The net below has rot away
So my eyes, seek reality
And my fingers, seek my veins

   The trash fire is warm
   But nowhere's safe from the storm
   And I can't bear to see, what I've let me be
   So wicked and worn

   So as I write to you
   Of what is done and to do
   Maybe you'd understand, and won't cry for this man
   Cause low man is due
   Please forgive me

My eyes, seek reality
My fingers, feel for faith
Touch clean, with a dirty hand
I touch the clean to the waste

   The trash fire is warm
   But nowhere's safe from the storm
   And I can't bear to see, what I've let me be
   So wicked and worn

   So as I write to you
   Of what is done and to do
   Maybe you'd understand, and won't cry for this man
   Cause low man is due

   Please forgive me
   Please forgive me
   Please forgive me

So low the sky is all I see
All I wnat from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Even though he just wants right back out again

And I cry, to the alleyway
Confess all, to the rain
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror
The one I've broken, to match my face

   The trash fire is warm
   But nowhere's safe from the storm
   And I can't bear to see, what I've let me be
   So wicked and worn

   So as I write to you, yeah
   Of what is done and to do, yeah
   Maybe you'd understand, and won't cry for this man
   Cause low man is due

   Please forgive me
   Please forgive me

So low the sky is all I see
All I wnat from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Even though he just wants right back out again

My eyes, seek reality
My fingers, seek my veins


Attitude

Suppose I say
I'm never satisfied 
Suppose I say
You cut some root 
To make the tree survive 
 
Just let me kill you for a while 
Just let me kill you for a smile 
Just let me kill you once 
I'm, oh, so bored to death 
 
Ohhhh, I hunger 
I hunger 
I eat 
 
   Born Into Attitude 
   Asleep at the wheel 
   Throw all your bullets in the fire 
   And run like hell 
   Why cure the fever? 
   What ever happened to sweat? 
 
Suppose I say 
The vultures smile at me 
Suppose I say 
I've sent them down 
And they plan to pick you clean 
 
And satifaction this way comes 
And satifaction this way comes 
And satifaction's here and gone, gone 
Yeah gone again 
 
Oooh, I hunger 
Ooh I hunger 
I eat 
 
   Born Into Attitude 
   Asleep at the wheel 
   Throw all your bullets in the fire 
   And stand there 

   Born Into Attitude 
   Twist mother tongue 
   Throw all your bullets in the fire 
   And run like hell 
   Why cure the fever? 
   What ever happened to sweat? 

Just let me kill you for a while 
Just let me kill you for a smile 
Just let me kill you once for me 
I'm bored to death 
 
And satifaction this way comes 
And satifaction this way comes 
And satifaction's here and gone, gone 
gone again 
 
Yeah I hunger 
Oooh I hunger 
I eat 
 
   Born Into Attitude 
   Asleep at the wheel 
   Throw all your bullets in the fire 
   And stand there 
 
   Born Into Attitude 
   Twist mother tongue 
   Throw all your bullets in the fire 
   And run like hell 
   Why cure the fever? 
   What ever happened to sweat? 


Fixxxer

Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins 
One for each of us and our sins 
So you lay us in a line 
Push your pins they make us humble 
Only you can tell in time 
If we fall or mearly stumble

   But tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
   Can you heal the broken worlds within?
   Or can you, strip away so we may start again?

   Tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or cut this rope and let us run?
   Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
   You jab another pin, jab another pin in me

Mirror, mirror, upon thy wall
Break this spell or become the doll
See you sharpening the pins
So the holes will remind us
We're just the toys in the hands of another
And in time, needles turn from shine to rust

   But tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
   Can you heal the broken worlds within?
   Or can you, strip away so we may start again?

   Tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or cut this rope and let us run?
   Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
   You jab another pin, jab another pin in me

Jab it
Here come the pins

Blood for face 
Sweat for dirt 
Three X's for the stone 
To break this curse 
A ritual's due 
I believe I'm not alone 
Shell of shotgun 
Pint of gin 
Numb us up to shield the pins 
Renew our faith 
Which way we can 
To fall in love with life again 
To fall in love with life again 
To fall in love with life again 
To fall in love 
To fall in love 
To fall in love with life again

   So tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
   Can you heal the broken worlds within?
   Or can you, strip away so we may start again?

   Tell me can you heal what father's done?
   Or cut this rope and let us run?
   Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
   You jab another pin, jab another pin in me

   No more pins in me 
   No more, no more pins in me 
   No more, no more pins in me 
   No more, no more, no more 
   No, no, no
