Album lyrics

1. See Me Burning

What's the matter, baby

What a wicked smile

You look like the ghost of Cinderella

You look like you'd go a country mile

My, my, my, my, you're coming on strong

Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down

Gonna burn the whole world down

See me burning...

 

Where's the action honey?

Speak and tell me true

Even if you don't know what I'm saying

You look like you know the ones who do

My, my, my, my, you really fetch my bone

You're the one, you're the one

Shake your ass, bring it on

See me burning...

 

What's the matter, baby?

Don't you wanna play?

Come on over later, bring your sister,

I swear to you she won't be in the way

My, my, my, my, I wanna go for broke

Come on down, come on up

I got the magic, I can change your luck

bye bye baby, bye bye

I gotta move on down the road

Stand your ground, stand your ground

Don't forget me and I'll see you round

See me burning, see me burn

 

2. Slow Dance

Woman, what's your name?

I know you from somewhere

Vixen, playing games

Make me think that you care

I know what you're thinking

Thinking that you're too cool

And you know what I'm thinking

Just another poor fool...

 

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Show me you're a mover

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Dancing all alone

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Come a little closer

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Drive us all crazy

But I'd rather drive you home

 

Woman, orgasmatron

Drive me out of my mind

Teaser, getting it on

Giving me a hard time

You know what I'm thinking

Thinking you look so fine

I know what I'm thinking

Wishing you were all mine

 

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Show me you're a mover

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Fire in my blood

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Come a little closer

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Don't you say I'm bad baby

You make me feel so good

 

Woman, you got the moves

I wish you'd give it all up

Lover, whatcha gonna do

Gonna bring me bad luck

I got half the questions

And you got half the answers

I know you know, and you know what?

You sure some kind of dancer

 

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Show me you're a mover

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Tell me what you like

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Come a little closer

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Show me something new

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

Keep it under cover

Slow dance, slow dance, slow dance

If I could do it over, then I'd do it over you...

 

3. Stay Out Of Jail

Still watching the sky

We ain't sure of you yet

New in town, been around

Heartbreaker for sure

Maybe running from the law

Just passing the time

Just moving down the line

Not time to fall, no time to fail

No time for anything at all

Stay out of jail...

 

Still facing the door

Just watching the street

City born, ripped and torn

Still turning tricks

Enough to make you sick

Just passing the buck

You might be real bad luck

Not time to fall, no time to fail

No time for anything at all

Stay out of jail...

 

Can't see you right now

We ain't got the time

Bad news, stand accused

A fool in drag, got your nose in a bag

Whacked out of your head

Y'all remember what I said

No time to fix

No time to bail

No time for one last call

Stay out of jail...

 

4. God Save The Queen

God save the Queen

A fascist regime

They made you a moron

Potential H-bomb

 

God save the Queen

She ain't no human being

There is no future

In England's dreaming

 

Don't be told about what you want

Don't be told about what you need

No future, no future, no future for you

 

God save the Queen

We mean it, man

We love our Queen

God saves

 

God save the Queen

Tourists are money

But our figurehead

Is not what she seems

 

God save history

God save your mad parade

Oh Lord, have mercy!

All crimes are paid

 

When there's no future, how can there be sin?

We're the flowers in the dustbin

We're the poison in the human machine

We're the future, we're the future

 

God save the Queen

We mean it, man

We love our Queen

God saves

 

God save the Queen

We mean it, man

We love our Queen

God saves

 

No future, no future

No future, no future

No future, no future

No future, no future

 

No future, no future

No future, no future

No future for you

 

5. Out To Lunch

When you got it, you know you got it

When it's gone, you know you lost it

Nobody ever switched your switch

Nobody ever scratches your itch

Out of time, serves you right

Where you gonna sleep tonight

Out of time, blinding light

Now you're gonna feel the bite...

 

Turned around again, turned around again

Turned around again

Out for blood, out for blood

Out to lunch and no damn good...

 

If you need it, you must believe it

When it's gone you can;t retrieve it

Can't see where it all went wrong

You don't know what's going on

Out of time, serves you right

Where you gonna sleep tonight

Out of time, blind at night

Now you're gonna feel the bite

 

Turned around again, turned around again

Turned around again

Out for blood, out for blood

Out to lunch and no damn good...

 

When it's on, you know it's on

When it bites, you know you're wrong

Don't feel good about yourself

Don't know if you're someone else

Out of time, serves you right

Where you gonna sleep tonight

Out of time, blind all right

Now you're gonna feel the bite

 

Turned around again, turned around again

Turned around again

Out for blood, out for blood

Out to lunch and no damn good...

Turned around again, turned around again

Turned around again

Out for blood, out for blood

Out to lunch and no damn good...

 

6. Wake The Dead

When your name is spoken

Then Your soul awakes as well

And there is n limit to the power of the spell

You can never leave it

You can never let it lie

You must find the speaker

For one of you must die

 

The name, the name, the name, the name's the same

All your lives are on the line

All your lives are on the line

And all your life you know you're dying

 

What you know, you must not tell

What you know, you must not sell

All the secrets you can keep

All the lies you cannot speak

Everybody steals your time

Thousand voices in your head

Everybody, everybody

Shouting fit to wake the dead

 

When you see the devil

Then you're looking for relief

And there is no relief

And there is no justice

Keep your tongue between your teeth

You can be the devil

But you cannot count the cost

All your time is wasted

All your love is lost

 

The name, the name, the name's the same

Play the game

You can never be the one

You can never be the one

When you know all your love is gone

 

What you know, you must not tell

What you know, you must not sell

All the secrets you can keep

All the lies you cannot speak

Everybody steals your time

Remember me, what I said

Everybody, everybody

Shouting fit to wake the dead

 

When you are alone here

In the houses of the blind

Don't you ever wonder what happened to the time?

You cannot regain it

You cannot bring it back

Stretched out on the rack

 

The name, the name, the name's the same

The name, the name's the game

You will never know the truth

You will never know the truth

We both know you will never look

 

What you have is yours, my friend

You will never see the end

All your future gone to hell

All your past an empty shell

You can;t keep upon your secret shelf

You are not the Antichrist

You are not the Lord of Flies

You are not important now

You are not the one to dread

Everybody, everybody

The name, the name's the game

 

7. One More Fucking Time

All life is a mystery,

All things come to he who waits

All things just a twist of fate

It's just a state of mind

All your time is not your own

It's real hard to find out why

It's real hard to say good-bye

To move on down the line...

 

Both your eyes wide open

You see the shape I'm in

It wasn't of my choosing

It's only bones and skin

And I will plead no contest

If loving you's a crime

So go on and find me guilty

Just one more fucking time

 

All your life is in your head

All you dreams are in your sleep

And if your dreams are hid too deep

They're just a waste of time

When you try to chase the dream

You never seem to know the time

You never recognize the signs

And nothing's what it seems

 

Both your eyes wide open

You see the shape I'm in

It wasn't of my choosing

It's only bones and skin

And I will plead no contest

If loving you's a crime

So go on and find me guilty

Just one more fucking time

 

And if I would have been a bad man

You would have seen the good in me

You would have seen the other

The good man I could be

But since I am a good man

The same was all the same

Nothing I could do, nothing I could do

 

All life is a mystery,

All things pass you by in time

All things just a perfect crime

It's just the way we are

All instincts let you down

It's not a case of love in vain

It's not a case of love insane

It's enough to break your heart

 

Both your eyes wide open

You see the shape I'm in

It wasn't my idea

That I be the one to sin

And so all those years together

Weren't worth a fucking dime

So go on and find me guilty

Just one more fucking time

And so all our years together

Weren't worth a fucking dime

So go on and find me guilty

Just one more fucking time

And so all our years together

Weren't worth a fucking dime

So go on and find me guilty

Just one more fucking time

 

8. Stagefright / Crash And Burn

Flying circus on the road

Burn like fire, blind and cold

Stagefright, stagefright, oh baby

Not me, not me, not me

Stagefright, stagefright, oh man

Never got me

Crash and burn,

Crash and burn, drive on

Crash and burn,

Crash and burn, we're gone

 

Cheat the devil, live so long

Burn the mission, sing your song

Stagefright, stagefright, yo momma

Not me, not me, not me

 

Stagefright, stagefright, go back

That's where I wanna be

 

Crash and burn, crash and burn, drive on

Crash and burn, crash and burn, we're gone

 

Stagefright, stagefright,

Walk the line, love the shoes

Tattooed lady, needle blues

Stagefright, stagefright, oh baby

Not me, not me, not me

Stagefright, stagefright, get down

Something came over me

 

Crash and burn, crash and burn, drive on

Crash and burn, crash and burn, we're gone

Crash and burn, crash and burn, drive on, drive on,

Drive on, we're gone

 

9. (Wearing Your) Heart On Your Sleeve

Clock is still ticking

Why don't you listen?

Ain't got the time that you had yesterday

Can't be so blind, way out of line

Thinking the world wants to hear what you say

Nobody ever knows why

Nobody ever knows who

Nobody sees that we're all on our knees

Looking for reasons to do what we do

Hey, what the hell

Get out of your shell

Time to get back to when truth was all true

Get me some danger

Get me a stranger

Time to be counted and pay up my dues

Stand or fall

Get ourselves something that we can believe

Fight or crawl

Use what you find in yourself to succeed

Stand or fall

Wearing your heart on your sleeve

 

Politics suck, you'll be shit out of luck

If you ever mess with the methods they use

No way to doubt, three strikes you're out

You against them, it's your freedom you lose...

Nobody questions the law

Nobody questions the man

Nobody cares 'cos nobody knows where

We go to so we can kick out the jams

Hey what the hell

You know yourself well

Get back to your honor and pride

Time for some slamming

Time for some jamming

Take us away from the snare of their lies

 

Stand or fall

Get ourselves something that we can believe

Fight or crawl

Use what you find in yourself to succeed

Stand or fall

Wearing your heart on your sleeve

 

We're on the run, we're under the gun

Sneaking and hiding, away from the sun

Breaking the law, don't know what for

Our generation is made up of whores

 

Get out of town, get out of jail

Nobody here gonna make us our bail

Don't really care that my life isn't fair

Hard on your head in the electric chair

Out of your mind, deaf, dumb and blind

Don't know how people can be so unkind

Grown up too soon, grown up too soon

Too many wolves looking up at the moon

 

Way too clean, too fucking healthy, you know what I mean

Way too rich, every executive son of a bitch

Way too mean, they're all to eager to feed the machine

Way too smart, gonna come down and break all of our hearts

Way too slick - way they schmooze, like to making me sick

Time to leave, wearing your heart on your sleeve

Wearing your heart on your sleeve

 

10. We Are Motorhead

We shoot power to your heart, a mighty thunderbolt

We charge all batteries, we save your soul

We don't know when we're licked,

But we turn lead into gold

We know alchemy, we bring you rock and roll

 

We are the ones you love, or we're the ones you hate

We are the ones always too early or too late

We are the first and we just still might be the last

We are Motorhead - born to kick your ass

 

We bring the firestorm to brighten up your life

We mend all broken hearts, we cure all pain

We bring you attitude and razor teeth to bite

We bring machine gun law and we're the ones to blame

We are the ones you need, the ones that you despise

We are the ones who wanna poke you in the eye

We are the future, baby, used to be the past

We are Motorhead and we don't have no class...

 

We bring you UFOs, saucers in the sky

We shoot you full of noise, we aim to kill

We burn like motherfuckers, spit right in your eye

We fight authority, we glorify free will

We are the ones you heard of, but you never heard

We are electric prophets, here to twist the world

We are the flame at night, the fire in the trash

We are Motorhead, we are Motorhead

We are Motorhead, we are Motorhead

We are Motorhead, we are Motorhead
