Fuel

Gimme fuel, Gimme fire, Gimme that which I desire.
Oh, Yeah! .

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

I run across through black and white.
War horse.
War head.
Fuck 'em, man.
White knuckle tight.
Through black and white .

Oh.
When I burn.
Fuel is pumping engines.
Burning hard.
Loose and clean.
Oh.
And then I burn.
Turning 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 hope.
Burn your face upon the chrome .

Take the corner, going to crash.
Headlights.
Headlines.
Another junkie, who lives too fast .

Yeah.
Lives way too fast, fast, fast, fast, fast, fast .

White knuckle tight .

Gimme fuel.
Gimme fire.
My desire .

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.
And 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.
Dance little tin goddess .

Drift away.
Fade away.
Little tin goddess .

Ash to ash.
Dust to dust.
Fade to black .

Ash to ash.
Dust to dust.
Fade to black.
The memories remain.
Yeah.
To this faded prima donna.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah .

Dance little tin goddess dance .

(Say yes - at least say hello).
(Say yes - at least say hello).


Devil's Dance

Yeah.
I feel you too.
Feel.
Those things you do.
In your eyes I see a fire that burns.
To free the you.
That's running through.
Deep inside you know.
Seeds I plant will grow .

One day you will see.
And dare to come down to me.
Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance.
That's right.
Let's dance .

Snake.
I am the snake.
Tempting.
That bite you take.
Let me make your mind.
Leave yourself behind.
Be not afraid.
I've got what you need.
Hunger I will feed .

One day you will see.
And dare to come down to me.
Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance.
Haha.
Come dance .

Yeah, come dancing .

One day you will see.
And dare to come down to me.
Yeah, come on, come on now take the chance .

Mm, it's nice to see you here.
Haha.


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.
The black of day.
Dark of night.
We share this paralyze.
The door cracks open.
But there's no sun shining through.
Black heart 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?.
Yeah.
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? .

Come 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.
Yes, 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 your 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.
Behi.
nd the door.
Should I open it for you?.
Yeah.
What I've felt.
What I've known.
So 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.
And I bury it 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 pale.
Hungry and thirsty I wail.
Holding the lion chair.
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 homes I push, and I strive.
Somehow I feel more alive.
Bury the deep forest.
Bury the sea.
Bury me deep when there's no will to be .

Better than you (better than you).
Oh Better than you (better than you) .

Oh, can't stop this train from rolling.
Oh, yo, nothing brings me down.
No, can't stop this train from rolling on and on, on.
No, no, forever on and on .

Oh, can't stop this train from rolling.
Oh, yo, you can't take it down.
No, never stop this locomotion on and on and on.
No, no, you can't bring me down 'cause I'm .

Better than you (better than you).
Better than you (better than you).
Oh 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.
Yeah .

Can't stop this train from rolling .

Forever on and on and on and on and on.
Forever on and on and on .

Better than you.
Yeah.
Haha.
Better than you.


Slither

Don't go looking for snakes.

Where The Wild Things Are

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

Steal dreams and give to you.
Shop lift 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 stain through? .

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

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

You swing your ass all down.
Call to arms, a trumpet's sound.
Toy horses start the charge.
Robots, chessmen standing guard.
We shall never surrender .

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

So close your little eyes.


Prince Charming

There's a black cloud overhead.
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 it cry .

There's a dirty needle in your child.
Haha, stick me.
Empty bottles still in hand, still dead.
Still me.
I'm the suit and tie that breaks 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 too old to see.
Hey, Look it's me.
When no one wants to see.
See what you brought this world.
Just what you wanna see.
Hey ma.
Hey ma, look it's me .

Yeah.
He wants to become father now.
Me again, me.
The marks inside your arms still leaves me alone to me.
I'm the nothing face that plants a bomb.
And strolls away.
I'm the one who doesn't look quite right.
As children play .

Look up to me.
What you've been and what you've feared.
Look up to me.
Look it's me, what you hear.
See right through me.
See the one who can't be free.
See right through me.
Look it's me when no one wants to see .

Hey, hey, hey .

Yeah.
It's me .

Hey ma.
Hey ma, look it's me .

See right though me.
Look up to me.
See right though me.
Look up to 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 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 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'll 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 touched the clean to the waste .

Please forgive me.
Please forgive me.
Please forgive me .

So low the sky is all I see.
All I want from you is forgive me.
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain.
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 .

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 .

Oh, 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 set them down.
They plan to pick you clean .

And satisfaction this way comes.
And satisfaction this way comes.
And satisfaction's here and gone.
Gone, yeah, and gone again .

Oh, I hunger.
Oh, 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? .

Yeah, I hunger.
Oh, I hunger.
I eat.


Fixxxer

Yeah.
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 merely 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.
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 .

Yeah.
Mirror, mirror upon the wall.
Break the 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 the needles turn from shine to rust .

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 .

No more pins in me, yeah.
No more, no more pins in me.
No more, no more pins in me.
No more, no more, no more.
No, no, no .
