1. Sucker

 

How we are, ain't how we were,

Innocence, is for the birds,

Now we are poison, and we don't care,

We have no shame, we strip you bare,

And you so precious, lost in smoke,

Too busy laughing, to see the joke.

 

Nobody knows if you won or you lost,

Into the palace or up on the cross,

Into the gravy or into the ground,

We just don't want you around,

 

What we want, ain't what we get,

Rags to riches, ain't working yet,

For we are monsters, we love our work,

Raise your voice, you bite the dirt,

And you so patient, lost in dreams,

Too busy crying, to hear the screams.

 

Nobody cares if you lost or you won,

In with the girlies or under the gun,

Into the sunshine or under the blade,

We gonna dance on your grave,

Sucker

 

What we do, is break the law,

We tasted blood and we want more,

For we are murder, we like it fine,

No quarter, we draw the line,

And you so gracious, lost in time,

Too busy killing, to see the crime

 

Love it or hate it, you're gonna pay,

All of us here, gonna ruin your day,

Into the palace or into the pit,

We think you're just full of shit.

 

Nobody cares if you're in or you're out,

We're gonna give you a smack in the mouth,

Whether you go or whether you stay,

I guess it just ain't your day,

Sucker

 

2. One Night Stand

 

One lucky devil that's me, gonna be my brand new rose,

Don't you look good I swear honey,

Show it wherever you go,

Talking, looking & thinking,

Keep me happy all day,

Love me tender, let me remember

When I get old & grey.

 

Love, at first sight, love with a travelling man,

I’ve been a slut all my life,

Wish every night was a one-night stand.

 

You got a beautiful smile, the story of my poor life,

One look's worth a thousand words,

And that's the truth alright

Moving, touching and breathing,

Just trying to make some time,

Loving you honey, don't want your money,

Either your place or mine.

 

Love, at first sight, love with a travelling man,

I’ve been a slut all my life,

Wish every night was a one-night stand.

 

Into your town like thunder, crazy invasion of noise,

Come on down, stick around,

But honey don't bring no boys,

Crawling out of the badlands,

To rock in the shape of your worlds

You'll see us seldom, so make us welcome,

I love American girls.

 

Love, at first sight, love with a travelling man,

your whole world tonight,

Wish every night was a one-night stand.

 

Love, at first sight, love with a travelling man,

give it up tonight,

Wish every night was a one-night stand

 

Love, at first sight, love with a travelling man,

I’ve been a slut all my life,

Wish every night was a one-night stand.

 

3. Devil I Know

 

Stand up for the cause,

Lay down for the law,

You know what your claw is for,

Far as you can spit,

Don't knock on my door,

You ain't welcome no more,

I might be a dog,

But honey, you're a bitch.

 

Ain't gonna change a thing,

Ain't gonna change my ways,

I don't care where you've been,

I don't care where you go,

Going back to the devil I know.

 

Stand up for the count,

Hold up and dismount,

I know what my feet are for,

I know when to quit,

Don't come around my house,

Or I'll put you out,

It might sound harsh,

But I'm done flicking your switch.

 

Ain't gonna change a thing,

Ain't gonna change my ways,

I don't care where you've been,

I don't care where you go,

Going back to the devil I know, Hey.

 

Stand up for your life,

Lay down for the knife,

I know what that smile is for,

Hard as I been hit,

I can't be your lover,

So go find another,

It might sound cold,

But I'm done digging your ditch.

 

Ain't gonna change a thing,

Ain't gonna change my ways,

I don't care where you've been,

I don't care where you go,

Going back to the devil I know.

 

4. Trigger

 

Running through the darkness,

Won't do you no good to flee,

Stalking through the golden state,

Who's bitch do you want to be,

Can't run, can't hide,

Gonna get you wait and see,

 

You know I'm weird, I know I'm weird,

I'm crazy

Now feel your backbone shiver,

Lucky thing for you babe I'm so lazy,

But I'm gonna pull your trigger.

 

Look over your shoulder,

And all the windows too,

Bow down to the golden calf,

Which bitch is the one for you,

What you need is extra speed,

Cause I'm gonna hit on you,

 

You know I'm weird, I know I'm weird,

I'm crazy

Now feel your backbone shiver,

Lucky thing for you babe I'm so lazy,

But I'm gonna pull your trigger.

 

Know you can't stop,

Move it on over,

But that's another story,

Cause I knew your mama

 

Out here in the city,

Just half a mile behind,

Searching for the golden rose,

Which bitch would you like to find,

You can't run forever,

And you're still on my mind.

 

You know I'm weird, I know I'm weird,

I'm crazy

Now feel your backbone shiver,

Lucky thing for you babe I'm so lazy,

But I'm gonna pull your trigger.

 

You know I'm weird, I know I'm weird,

I'm crazy

Now feel your backbone shiver,

Lucky thing for you babe I'm so lazy,

But I'm gonna pull your trigger.

 

5. Under The Gun

 

We should have got it on, you know it's true,

So many times, I thought I spoke to you,

But I guess it wasn't true, some dreams ain't real,

Wishful thinking, the way I feel,

But you sure looked good this time,

I'm sure it ain't no crime,

A little fantasy, involving you & me.

 

Cone on Over, lay it down,

It's about time, shoot me a line, lay it down,

All of our lives, running away from the law,

We all live under the sun,

But we don't have to live under the gun.

 

We still might meet again, you know we could,

I got so many ways, to make you feel so good,

I guess it's up to you, to make it work,

I hope it's true, don't leave me in the dirt,

You sure look good to me, I'm sure you must agree.

Just one more chance, the horizontal dance.

 

And so we're warm again, perhaps a little wet,

I know a few good ways, make sure you don't forget,

I guess it's real right now, let me show you how,

Some dreams come true, got me next to you,

Can't wait to see, you naked just for me,

Move against me girl, take me around the world.

 

Cone on Over, lay it down,

It's about time, shoot me a line, lay it down,

All of our lives, running away from the law,

We all live under the sun,

But we don't have to live under the gun.

 

6. God Was Never On Your Side

 

If the stars fall down on me

And the sun refuse to shine

Then may the shackles be undone,

And all the old words, cease to rhyme.

If the skies, turn into stone,

It will matter not at all,

For there is no heaven in the sky,

Hell does not wait for our downfall,

 

Let the voice of reason shine,

Let the pious vanish for all times,

God's face is, hidden, all unseen,

You can't ask him what it all means

He was never on your side,

God was never on your side

Let right or wrong, alone decide,

God was never on your side.

 

See the ten thousand ministries,

See the holy righteous dogs,

They claim to heal

but all they do is steal,

Abuse your faith, cheat & rob.

If god is wise, why is he still,

When these false prophets

call him friends,

Why is he silent, is he blind,

Are we abandoned in the end?

 

Let the sword of reason shine,

Let us be free of prayer & shrine

God's face is hidden, turned away

He never has a word to say

He was never on your side

God was never on your side

Let right or wrong, alone decide,

God was never on your side.

(No, No, No)

 

He was never on your side,

God was never on your side

Never, Never, Never, Never,

Never on your side [x2]

God was never on your side,

Never on your side.

 

7. Living In The Past

 

Don't you speak of lies to me,

After all the deeds are done,

After all the smoking guns,

Don't speak to me of lies.

Don't you try to scold me now,

Don't you try to hold me now,

Don't start acting cold right now,

Don't you even try.

Nothing is the same for us,

All the times are changed for us,

All things fault and blame for us,

Good times laid aside.

 

So now we are the lost,

And now we are the last,

Living in a nightmare,

Broken dreams, love turned mean,

Living in the past.

 

Don't you speak to me no more,

After what you said before,

After all the things you swore,

Don't speak to me no more.

Don't you know the way we are,

Black enough to hide the stars,

Made us take our rage too far,

Don't you know at all.

Nothing is what we have now,

Nothing is what we're allowed,

Nothing but an echo now,

Nothing like before.

 

So now we are the lost,

And now we are the last,

Living in a nightmare,

Broken dreams and love turned mean,

Living in the past,

Living in the past.

 

I ain’t gonna take the blame,

Don't twist the truth, don't be a whore,

Tell the truth & shame the devil,

Don't you lie no more.

I will never understand,

How we came to this sad place,

Just to look at your sad face,

Castles made of sand.

but Here we are, so we do,

What we had is now untrue,

What there was is lost and shamed,

Here we are again.

 

So now we are the lost,

And now we are the last,

Living in a nightmare,

Broken dreams and love turned mean,

Living in the past.

 

So now we are the lost,

And now we are the last,

Living in a nightmare,

Broken dreams and love turned mean,

Living in the past,

Living in the past.

 

8. Christine

 

Hear her coming, 'bout 5 miles away,

That girl is something, know she gonna make my day,

Ah, She is so fine, real good friend of mine,

I just wanna jump her bones all the time,

See her walking, she knows all the moves,

Fortune cookie, stand your toes up in your shoes,

Oh you can't believe, what she got up her sleeve,

Likes me fine, and that's just fine with me,

 

Christine, I'm going out of my mind, Like to drive me wild,

Red hot mama ain't no lie, So glad I caught your eye

Christine, you put your hands on me, I got electric blood

Come on over & do it again, Just like a bad girl should.

 

She moves like a rattlesnake made out of razorblades,

That girl can't help it, just the way she's made,

I would run all around the world, Just to see that girl,

She sure loves playing with the Ace of Spades.

 

Christine, drive me out of my head, Like to drive me wild,

Red hot mama ain't no lie, So glad I caught your eye

Christine, you put your hands on me, I got electric blood

Come on over & do it again, Just like a bad girl should.

( come on!)

 

Christine, drive me out of my mind, Like to drive me wild,

Red hot mama ain't no lie, So glad I caught your eye

Christine, you put your hands on me, I got electric blood

Come on over & do it again, Just like a bad girl should.

Christine, christine

Christine, I just wanna jump her bones,

She's my baby.

 

9. Sword of Glory

 

Where are we to go from here in time,

Do you see the future, do you know,

What can you expect from years to come,

And what can you do now to make it so,

 

All of history is there for you,

All the deeds done in the world are mad

If you don't know what has gone before,

You'll just make the same mistake again & again & again.

 

Soldier, soldier, see where we were,

You have to know the story,

Older, colder, life isn't fair,

Got to grab the sword of glory,

 

If you can't see what bloody fools we were,

Then you were also born a bloody fool,

Listen to the hundred million dead,

They didn't know it, but they died for you,

 

All you know is that you're young & tough,

Don't you think those millions thought the same,

If you don't know where it all went wrong,

You'll just make the same mistake again & again & again.

 

Soldier, soldier, see where we were,

You have to know the story,

Older or colder, life ain't fair,

Got to grab the sword of glory,

 

Read the books, learn to save your life,

How can you find the knowledge if you don't,

All the brave men died before their time,

You'll either be a hero, or you won't,

 

Don't you realize the only way,

Is see why all those brave men died in vain,

If all that slaughter doesn't make you sad,

You'll just make the same mistake again & again & again.

 

Soldier, soldier, see where we were,

You have to know the story,

Older or colder, life ain't fair,

Got to grab the sword of glory.

 

10. Be My Baby

 

Make out, make out, you must run,

Divide & rule, more & more,

Say the word, hardcore, hardcore,

 

You live your life, behind your eyes,

You got no life, no disguise,

 

Be my baby, I ain't gonna cry,

Shut your mouth, wanna do the dog,

Sex with needles, gonna get you of,

Outlaw, outlaw, no ma'am, no way,

Turn me down, damn shame, I'll say,

Going to freak show, to take my pain away.

 

Breakout, breakout, You must dance,

Divide & fall, more & more,

Save the world, high score, high score.

 

You live your life, behind the wall,

You got no life, not at all,

 

Be my baby, I ain't gonna die,

Shut you down, wanna do the dog,

Sex with monsters, gonna get you of,

Outlaw, outlaw, no ma'am, no way,

Turn me down, damn shame, I'll say,

Going to gun show to take my brain away,

 

Fake out, fake out, you can't leave,

Divide and stall, more & more,

Say the word, webcore, webcore,

 

You crawl with life, behind your face,

You got no life, no disgrace,

 

Be my baby, I ain't gonna die,

Stay right there, wanna do the dog,

Sex with killers, ain't gonna get them off,

Outlaw, outlaw, no ma’ am, no way,

Turn me down, damn shame, I'll say,

Going to a mode show, to take my shame away.

 

11. Kingdom Of The Worm

 

You remember, You remember me, yes,

I remember what we are, I remember only scars,

I remember only stars, I remember hell and mother,

I have seen the eye of god, Youth trust gone forever.

 

See only the master, risen, risen,

After all the silence, all of him laughing

After all the strangers, beaten, driven,

Try to place all things, in a certain rhythm

Do as the book told you see the pages torn,

Make the spell upon them, in human form,

So we come to call it, the great & awesome dance,

Do you see before you, the Kingdom of Romance.

 

You remember, You remember his face,

You remember what I am, I remember only weeping,

I remember only sleeping, I remember tearing flesh,

I can only taste the devil, Your tears when you cry,

 

Wasted with the children, singing just a hymn,

You can hear them only, crying, crying,

After all the horses gallop to fathom,

Try to fell under you, spine of the dragon,

Do as you consider, writhe & spin alarm,

Spell tricky magic, nails for your savior,

So we bravely gather, though we moan with dread,

Do you see before you, the Kingdom of the Dead.

 

Can I remember, I remember you, no,

Can I remember gold, I remember silver eyes,

I remember silver skies, I remember awesome pain

I can hear the horse in darkness, Only he dreams of glory.

 

Standing at the edge of all, Looking down at last,

Can you see the others, running, running,

All the horses burning, sinking, dying,

Do you feel destiny or are you lying,

Do what you were made for, all must endure,

Soon the door closes, for good or evil,

Are you the ice queen or do you want to burn,

Here see before you, the Kingdom of the Worm

 

Kingdom of Romance... Kingdom of the Dead...

Kingdom of the Worm... All Men Must Suffer...

 

12. Going Down

 

Dr Rock is gonna shoot you full of rock & Roll,

We do it real good,

Loud & clear, we beat the drum,

We gonna make you run.

In the name of Rock & Roll, fire in the sky,

Going down, going down,

 

You can't mess with Dr Rock,

So don't you even try,

We run through the city, got everything we need,

We got all the aces & we got them up our sleeve,

 

Gonna see the Dr, take away your pain,

We do it real fine,

We say what we mean, we mean what we say,

We're gonna make your day,

In the name of Rock & Roll, fire in the sky,

Going down, going down,

 

You can't mess with Dr Rock,

So don't you even try,

We run through the city, got everything we need,

We got all the aces & we got them up our sleeve,

 

Crossing over rivers, over mountains, over seas,

Coming to rock your world,

Hear us scream, whatever can it mean,

We're gonna steal your girl,

In the name of Rock & Roll, fire in the sky,

Going down, going down,

 

You can't mess with Dr Rock,

That's right, don't you even try,

We run through the city, got everything we need,

We got all the aces & we got them up our sleeve,

Right now
