****(Jungle Law)Deep down in the city 'neath the concrete trees Some signifying hack is scratching backs for fleas Putting on their bad mouths for poor little me Spreading ugly lies like it's some horrible disease He said that I said what I never did said But I said that it's rare that it's over your head Ask me a question, then print a lie I cancelled all appointments having vowed that he will die So I went to find the source of this malitious dirt Having reread the words and wiped the blood from my shirt When I found him he was sitting high up in a tree With one bloody finger on a typewriter key Sky is gray and the grass unseen And you're the dumbest **** this city's ever seen He was laughing, shaking, high up in a tree But then he lost his balance and he fell down on his knees So I leapt on that mother my anger to appease When I grabbed him by the throat, he said "Oh spare me please" Sure as gullible as my name I let him go back to the trees And straight away the poisons flowing freely from the keys The sky is grey and the grass unseen And he's still the dumbest **** this concrete jungle's ever seen That mother he was laughing, bathing in the heat But then he slipped again and landed in the street Deep down in the city 'neath the concrete trees Nobody's seen that mother high in the fleas But there's a new one in the obituaries And it shows four stars where the name oughta be

Bound for HellWell, faith flies off the mountain everyday No parachute, and no prayers to say Yes, my faith flies off a mountain everyday And there's no parachute, no goddamn prayers to say Fly the little monkey up a telegraph pole Sending out a signal to somebody, somebody Somebody, please somebody I want to hear a song that makes me believe in something I want to hear a song that makes me believe something I want to hear a song that makes me believe There's something to believe in I want to hear a song that makes me believe Had a dream... I was riding on a train that wasn't bound for glory Riding on a train, the train was bound for hell Riding on a train that wasn't bound for glory, that's for sure Riding on a train that's bound for hell The engine with human blood was damp The headlight was her brimstone lamp And then for fuel I shoveled in bones and the furnace roared with a thousand groans The tank was filled with lager beer The devil himself was engineer The passengers were a mixed up crew Churchmen, atheists, Baptists too The rich in broadcloth, poor in rags Handsome girls, wrinkled hags Black men, yellow, red and white Chained together, fearful sight The train rushed on at an awful pace The sulfer fumes burned hands and face Wilder and wilder the country grew Faster and faster the engine flew Loud and terrible thunder crashed Whiter brighter lightning flashed Hotter still the air became So clothes were burned from each shrinking frame There came a fearfull ear-splitting yell... Yell Satan: "Can't stop, next stop's hell" Twas then the passengers shrieked with pain And begged the devil to stop the train Stop this train He shrieked and roared, and grinned with glee And mocked and laughed at their misery "My friends you've bought your seats on this road, I've got to get through with a complete load" You've bullied the weak, you've cheated the poor The starving tramp, you turned from the door You've laid up gold till your purses burst You've given way to your beastly lust You've balked at god in your hell blown pride You've killed and you've cheated, and plundered and lied You've double crossed men and you've swore and you've stole Not a one in body and soul (that is virgin?) Body and soul So you've paid full fare and I'll carry you through If there's one don't belong I'd like to know who And here's the time when I ain't no liar I'll land you all safe in a land of fire And your flesh will scorch in the flames that roar You'll sizzle and burn from rind to core And I awoke with a shrilly cry My were clothes were wet, my hair stood high And I prayed as I've never until that hour To be saved from hell and the devil's power At present my vows were not in vain That I payed no fare on that hellbound train
The Teardrop CollectorI'll wipe these tears from your eyes I'll wipe these tears, make you feel alright And you can watch the world go around So you woke up one morning Found everything changed So you woke up one morning Found you had to rearrange your life You know you can make it If you don't love someone why not fake it? And if you love someone why chain them to you? You know you'll never make it So now you finally realize Sometimes you just gotta let love pass you by And watch the world go around And it's alright
So AliveI don't know what colour your eyes are, baby But your hair is long and brown Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long And you don't come from this town My head is full of magic, baby And I can share this with you The feel I'm on a cross again, lately But it's nothing to do with you I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive This drug makes me crazy Makes me see you more clearly. Oh, baby, now I can see you. Wish I could stop, Switch off the clock, Make it all happen for you. I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive OOOOH OOOOH Don't know what colour your eyes are, baby But your hair is long and brown Your legs are strong, and you're so, so long And you don't come from this town My head is full of magic, baby And I can share this with you The feel I'm on top again, baby That's got everything to do with you I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive I'm alive Oh Oh, so alive
Rock and Roll BabylonAll those Elvis records Circling the earth I think I've said four times over Were you present at the birth? Twinkle, twinkle, little star How we wonder what you are Spin a web of dreams And die for us on a cross of pills Your not too dumb to see A manager of schools of thought, Parasites who scheme I'm writing up the holocaust Of all those broken dreams Rock and Roll Babylon on the brink Gives a little slap come on, wink To beckon the stars down from the sky Rock and Roll Babylon on the brink Gives a little slap come on, wink To beckon the stars down from the sky Can you hear me Lady Diamond In your home from home? When your mommy calls you in Are you oblivious to the throne? That the farm's reserved for you, The effigy's in stone We loved you Lady Diamond Though we lost you in the zone Tightrope walker Take all our chances for us Tightrope walker Take all our chances for us Oh come on and be a tightrope walker Take all our chances for us Tightrope walker Take all our chances Who killed Johny Moondog Was the assassin you and me? To oversell the antidote, Or is it down to Jack and Jerry Lee? If you bite a chunk out of the moon, Will it help you see?
No Words No MoreEven the laziest devil Sits on your youth and you cry He watches your mistakes Until the day you die And then someone appears to assist you This one puts a different doubt in your mind No words, no words, no words no more No words, no words, no words no reasons why No words, no words, no words no more I need no words, no words, no words no reasons why Some people like to swim in pools under blue sky Some people further down the road than you and I They like the blue light, the light I always find Some people further down the road than you and I They say: no words, no words, no words no more No words, no words, no words no reasons why No words, no words, no words no more I need no words, no words, no words no reasons why
