1. WOMAN OF MASS DISTRACTION

I'm a shock-rock romeo
I like to leave 'em shattered
Oh, I can love 'em and leave 'em
It doesn't really matter

I never met my match
Until I met that lady
She hooked me
She cooked me
She practically filleted me

Some girls try and get you in bed
Some girls are like a kick in the head
Some girls make you wish you were dead
Some girls make you blue when you should be seeing red

She's a woman
Some kind of woman
I got a woman
A woman of mass distraction

The first time I saw her
She said she wants to date me
The next time I come back she tried to castrate me

Some girls try and get you in bed
Some girls are like a kick in the head
Some girls make you wish you were dead
Some girls make you blue when you should be seeing red

She's a woman
Some kind of woman
I got a woman
A woman of mass distraction

She's a woman
Some kind of woman
I got a woman
She's a woman
She's a woman
Some kind of woman
She's a woman
Some kind of woman


2. PERFECT

She's an overnight sensation
In the mirror on her wall
She gets a standing ovation
At every shower curtain call

And she becomes a pop star
In the safety of her car
And then she falls to pieces
At the karaoke bar

And she's perfect
Until the lights go on
And then it all goes wrong
'Cause now she's not so perfect

She can shake it just like J-Lo
When the bedroom lights go down
But when she hits the dance floor
She's a hip-hop hippo clown

She's perfect
Until the lights go on
And then it all goes wrong
'Cause now she's not so perfect

She's perfect
She's so fine
She's so wonderful
In the arena of her mind

She's not perfect
She's all mine
She can't sing or dance
She ain't got a chance
But baby, I don't mind

She's perfect
Oh, she's perfect
Ah, she's so perfect
You know, she's so perfect
Ah, ah, ah

Sing baby
Dance, dance, dance
You got it
Shake it down
Oh, that's bad
That's bad
I love you baby
That's just awful
You got it
You got it


3. YOU MAKE ME WONNA

You're the star
You're the face
You got the look that I can't erase
You look the world right in the eye
Stare 'em down baby, make 'em cry

Well I know it don't make much sense
I'm in love with your innocence
What you got what I need
You took my breath
Now let me breathe
What you got what I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Yeah, you know you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Oh, you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Yeah, I think I gotta
Woo-hoo-hoo

You're the bomb
I'm the fuse
Light me up and turn me loose
You shake me up when you walk by
My heart is beatin' and my mouth is dry

Well I know it don't make much sense
But I'm in love with your innocence
What you got what I need
You took my breath
Now let me breathe
What you got what I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
You know you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Oh, you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Yeah, I think I gotta
Woo-hoo-hoo

Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo

What you got what I need
You took my breath
Now let me breathe
What you got what I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
You know you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo
Oh, you make me wanna
Woo-hoo-hoo

What you got
Woo-hoo-hoo
Oh, I got to
Woo-hoo-hoo
What you got
Yeah yeah yeah
Woo-hoo-hoo
What you got
What you got
Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo
Woo-hoo-hoo


4. DIRTY DIAMONDS

It looked so good, your perfect plan
You had to get greedy to be the man
Now you're holding the bag, paying the price
Gonna get burned by the heat of the ice

Dirty diamonds

You rolled the dice, you bet your life
You put your trust in your trophy wife
Got stabbed in the back in the blink of an eye
She's in bed with the boys and the FBI

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list
Ah, ah oh yeah

You're tied to a chair witha gun at your head
Your face is all smeared with the blood that's been shed
You were gonna be rich
Now you're gonna be dead
And all that glitters turns to lead

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list

Dirty Diamonds

Diamonds don't cheat
Diamonds don't lie
Diamonds are forever
Diamonds never die

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list

Run for your life, you can't hide
Can't you hear 'em coming
You're gonna die
You better run for your life, you can't hide
Can't you hear 'em coming
You're gonna die
You better run for your life, you can't hide
Can't you hear 'em coming
You're gonna die
You better run for your life, you can't hide
Can't you hear 'em coming
You're gonna die


5. THE SAGA OF JESSE JANE

I'm in jail in a Texas town
In my sister's wedding gown
I drive a truck all night long
Listening to Judy Garland songs

Now I'm locked behind bars of steel
I was just looking for a happy meal
I park my rig and I went inside
They've never seen such a pretty bride

Jesse Jane, are you insane?
Or are you just a normal guy
Who dresses like a butterfly
Jesse Jane

I paid my bill and I turned around
Facing every red neck in that one horse town
His face was red. His fist was clenched
He threw his coke and he got me drenched

Jesse Jane, are you insane?
Or are you just an average Joe
Looking for a fashion show
Jesse Jane

Well, I guess that was the final straw
I pulled a pistol from my Wonderbra
I killed him dead. I killed 'em all
And they finally caugh me in the bathroom stall

And now I'm doing ten to life
But I'll tell you one thing, Bubba
Someday I'm gonna make someone in here
A hell of a wife

Jesse Jane, are you insane?
Or are you just a average guy
Who dresses like a butterfly
Jesse Jane

Jesse Jane, are you insane?
Or are you just a Peter Pan
Looking for his Neverland
Jesse Jane


6. SUNSET BABIES (ALL GOT RABIES)

They're running in packs on a saturday night
They got their own bark and they got their own bite
Waitin' in line I can't wait no more... No
Slip right in, get kicked out the back door

I don't know
If it's possible to tame one
I don`t know
If she'll follow me home
I don't know
What it is about her

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
Got my shot...

They got a sixth sense, they know why you're here
They can smell the fear thru the smoke and the beer
They're a vicious breed and they just don't care
You think you're in but you're getting nowhere

I don't know
If it's safe to pet one
I don`t know
To go for my throat
I don't know
What it is about them

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
And I'd buy her a diamond collar, if she'd only throw me a bone
Here I am alone...

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
Got my shot...

And she's supposed to be a mans best friend
Why she play around
Now I gotta put that old girl down


7. PRETTY BALLERINA

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair was so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

I called her yesterday
It should have been tomorrow
I couldn't keep
The joy that was inside
I begged for her to tell me
If she really loved me
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid it's moving without me

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

And when I wake up on a dreary Sunday morning
I open up my eyes to find there's rain
And something strange within said
"Go ahead and find her
Just close your eyes, yeah
Just close your eyes and she'll be there"

She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She's there, she's there
Ah, she's there
Ah, she's there


8. RUN DOWN THE DEVIL

It's twelve o'clock in the mornin'
While everybody is sleepin'
I want him dead in my head lights
Cuz in the shadow he's creepin'

Drive on down to lonely street
He's always waiting there for me
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down

I want to take him to the Mercury grill
I hope he's ready for the big blast
He'll be my ultimate road kill
I'll kick his future up his past

I'll send him back to hell alright
The world can sleep in peace tonight
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down

Everybody's gotta hold him down
Can't let Beelzebaby back in town
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run
Run down the devil, run him down, down, down


9. STEAL THAT CAR

It just ain't fair I was put in that position
Somebody left their keys in the ignition
I saw the unlocked door and made my decision
I just can't help myself

Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation shows
I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car

I don't get bored with a Chevy or Ford
With a V8 enginee and a 4 on the floor
And a naughty Maserati can't be ignored
I just can't help myself

Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation shows
I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car

Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation grows
I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows
I'm gonna steal that car My reputation shows
Steal that car
Steal that car
Steal that car
Steal it, steal it, steal it
Steal it, steal it, steal it
Steal it, steal it, steal it
Car, I want that car.
I want that car
I want that car


10. SIX HOURS

There's only six hours
Left in the day
Time is so precious
And it's slipping away

Got no destination
Got no place to go
And being with you
Is all that I know

Put your head on my pillow
We're finally alone
Wash the dust from your hair now
I don't care if you ever get home

There's only six hours
How quickly it goes
In this sacred place
Our secret is safe, nobody knows

Put your head on my pillow
We're finally alone
Wash the dust form your hair now
I don't care if you ever get home
Wash the dust form your hair now
I don't care if you ever get home


11. YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walking catastrophe

You get up every morning on the wrong side of the bed
You butter your hand instead of the bread
Drink enough coffee to wake the dead.

You're doing 85 and the light is turning red
The judge took your license and forbid you to drive
And your heart is pumping bacon and you're barely alive

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walking catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger. You're a danger

You trip on your shoelace and fall on your face
Your hair is a mess, your clothes a disgrace
Your stocks went south and your girlfriend is gay
Your dog ate your cat and that was your good day

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walking catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walking catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger. You're a danger
To every stranger
You're a mess
Yes, yes


12. ZOMBIE DANCE

Walkin' through the tombstones
Go there everyday
Stood damn still I got a chill
Someone walked across my grave

Stroll across the killing fields
In the middle of the night
Walked across the fire
In the cold moon light

Black cat crossed my pathway
Winks her juju eye
Cross myself and kiss this world goodbye

Nights alive with music
Puts me in a trance
Sneak up on the bonfire
Watch the zombies dance

My tongue is hot and burnin'
When I try to speak
Spirit is so willing
My flesh is gettin' weak
Yeah, it's gettin' weak

Now I ain't superstitious
Don't roll no juju bones
Someone calls in the middle of the night
And no one's on the phone

Black cat crossed my pathway
Winks her juju eye
I crossed myself and kiss this world goodbye

I ain't superstitious
Don't roll no voodoo bones
Someone calls in the middle of the night
No ones on the phone

Nights alive with music
Nights alive with music


13. STAND

[Xzibit:]
Yeah
Stand Up
Ha?
What do you believe in?
Ha?
Yeah
Stand Up
Aha
C'mon

[Alice:]
Just a face in the crowd
Feelin' lost, down and out
(Can you hear me now)
Millions more just like you
Afraid to do what they wanna do
(Am I getting through)

Lots of losers hanging round
Only there to bring you down
Get you feet up off the ground
Get up. Get up. Get up

If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
Get up

[Xzibit:] Yeah Yeah

[Alice:]
Don't you know that you're worth
As much as anyone on earth
(You`re a megastar)
Put your hands in the sky
Let your freaky colours fly
(Get 'em way up high)

You got style and you got game
So get it out don't be ashamed
([Xzibit:] Yeah)
Let everybody know your name
([Xzibit:] C'mon)
Get it on out now, what's you name

If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
If you don't stand for somethin'
([Xzibit:] Stand Up)
You will fall for anythin'
Get up

[Xzibit:]
Yeah
Ah
Yeah
Breathe with me
Yeah
C'mon
Breathe

You can stand for peace
You can stand for war
I stand in the square I never stood before
I take a stand for my son like Afeni Shakur
[Note: Mother of dead rapper Tupac Shakur]
I take a stand like a four double six six four
Stand alone in my struggle
Can't make me stand down
Make 'em crash and burn
Mayday mayday may tell
Get up stand up get your damn hands off
If they not shackled to your feet in some handcuffs

We need solutions, not propaganda
Let the tape roll, make the whole world stand up
Hold your position, don't go backwards
X still grinding, the west's keeps shining
Don't look too long you might get blinded
Follow your heart, your head might just find it
I pray for the strength to handle what my city brings
Better stand for something (or) you're bound to fall for anything

[Alice:]
If you don't stand for somethin'
([Xzibit:] stand up stand up)
You will fall for anythin'
Get Up!
If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
Everybody's got a voice
Now's the time to make some noise
(Let me hear you now)
Get up!


14. THE SHARPEST POINT

Hurting me
Seems to be
Your passion

Misery
Is certainly
Your style

I'm like a kid in a candy store
I'm on my knees 'til I lick the floor
Can't stand to look at your face
But I'm burning for more

Sharpest pain
The ugly scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are

The burning sting
Is what you bring
And you remain
The sharpest pain

You're the star
In your own sad story
I'm just a toy
You can drag around

You're about as sick as you can be
A twisted abnormality
I don't want to be your first fatality

Sharpest pain
The ugly scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are

The burning sting
Is what you bring
And you remain
The sharpest pain

Though your never ever funny
I just gotta laugh out loud
Cuz you keep me in stitches
Until the last thread of decency runs out

Sharpest pain
The ugly scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are

The burning sting
Is what you bring
And you remain
The sharpest pain

Sharpest pain
The ugly scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are

The burning sting
Is what you bring
And you remain
The sharpest pain
