1. MACHINE GUN

Well, the first time that I saw you
I could not speak a word
My tongue was tied in giant knots
And I felt so disturbed

At the feeling rushing through me
The heat inside my veins
At the way my nerve ends tingle
Every time you call my name

I've got a lust ignited fever
And I can't put out the flame

Next time that I saw you
I felt so at ease
You had a languid disposition
I had an willingness to please

And your candy apple red lips
Full of violets and sex
Had me harder than a coal train
Had my collar wringing wet
burnBut I'm not finished yet

My heart is pounding like a big bass drum
Excited at the thought I might get me some
Lick it off my fingers
Taste it on my tongue
Love you little baby like a machine gun

You're a symphony of elegance
A masterpiece of grace
And animated work of art
Who's acquired a taste

For the flesh of weaker lovers
Lie down on their backs
To be ridden at your leisure
And be taken off like hats

I'm not here for you to walk on
And I'm not your welcome mat

My heart is pounding like a big bass drum
Excited at the thought I might get me some
Lick it off my fingers
Taste it on my tongue
Love you little baby like a machine gun

A machine gun, yeah

The first time that I saw you
I could not speak a word
My tongue was tied in giant knots
And I felt so disturbed

At the feeling rushing through me
The heat inside my veins
At the way my nerve ends tingle
Every time you call my name

I've got a lust ignited fever
And I can't put out the flame

My heart is pounding like a big bass drum
Excited at the thought I might get me some
Lick it off my fingers
Taste it on my tongue
Love you little baby like a machine gun

Ma-ma-ma-machine gun

2. THE HOLE IN MY WALL

Through the hole in my wall,
I see into your head
a beggers day banquet
on a four poster bed

It's food for the eyes
drink for the soul
The hole in my wall
I can't let myself go

CHOURS
I'm spinning 'round and 'round
('round and 'round and 'round)
Don't let me down
(Ooh I groove) Through the hole in my wall
(Love the view) Through the hole in my wall
(Velvet Blue) through the hole in my wall
(I see you) through the hole in my wall

The hole in my wall, lets in the sound
Of bodies and sweat, and merry-go-rounds
The whole in my wall, is better than sex
An x-rated Disneyland, gooving T-Rex

I'm spinning 'round and 'round
('round and 'round and 'round)
Don't let me down
(Ooh I groove) Through the hole in my wall
(Love the view) Through the hole in my wall
(Velvet Blue) through the hole in my wall
(I see you) through the hole in my wall

I'm spinning 'round and 'round
('round and 'round and 'round)
Don't let me down
(Ooh I groove) Through the hole in my wall
(Love the view) Through the hole in my wall
(Velvet Blue) through the hole in my wall
(I see you) through the hole in my wall

Through the hole in my wall.


3. APRIL 2031

They say the sky used to be blue
I don't quite believe it.
It's probably always been
the color that it is.
And there were cotton candy clouds.
And birds to fly through it.
Just stories we all love to tell our kids.

So I'll close my electronic door
And keep the cold outside.
And hug my aluminium pillow so tight.
And pray the radiation
doesn't make me sick tonight.

No more sky and no more trees.
April 2031
No more oxygen to breathe.
April 2031
No more hate and no more war.
April 2031
Nothing left worth fighting for.
April 2031.

They say there used to be a wind
that wasn't caused by fans
I wonder how it would have felt in my hair
And the nuclear ring
around the moon was caused by man
if it was, then it's much too late to care

So I'll put my safety goggles on
and gaze out at the sun
as the artificial atmostphere machines
give off a constant hum
in a world that's cold and peaceful, april 2031

No more sky and no more trees.
April 2031
No more oxygen to breathe.
April 2031
No more hate and no more war.
April 2031
Nothing left worth fighting for.
April 2031.

As far back as Vietnam,
we should have learned our lesson.
But we closed our eyes
and sent our sons away.
And they told us we were winning
as they sold more ammunition.
Some were angry,
most just looked the other way.

And the night's illuminated
by the endless glowing sand
that swallowed all the oceans
and choked off all the land.
In a world beyond resuscitation
Even by God's hand

No more mountains no more sea
April 2031
No more you and no more me
April 2031-a



4. ANDY WARHOL WAS RIGHT

Twisted Little Daydreams
Memories with pain
Locking me behind the closet door

I will be a good boy
Promise I wont run
Sit quite in my room
Playing with my toy gun

Now I'm older but the memories
still eat me like disease.
Alone in the darkness
watching you on my t.v.
Why did God make you so famous
when he only spit on me.

I want to bathe in your light.
I want to be on the news.
If I take your life
its nothing personal.
Just a boy and his toy gun
dying for attention.

I'm sitting on the steps.
The sun is sinking low.
The world gets very quiet
as the street lamps start to glow.
I step out and I raise my gun
time just seems to slow.

For a moment I can see myself
trapped in your reflection.
I'm angry and I'm lonely
and I'm dying for attention.

I want to bathe in your light.
I want to be on the news.
If I take your life
its nothing personal.
Just a boy and his toy gun
dying for attention.

Dying for attention.

Mama


5. BONFIRE

She's tall like the Eiffel Tower
Fast, New York to Paris in half an hour
She's lean, a real love machine
Probably take on the whole football team
Strong, as the day is long
Think you got her figured out
You find out you were wrong
Long, as a limousine
She'll take your body places
that you've never, never seen

CHORUS
Hi ho away we go
Let's build a fire from coast to coast
Baby's on top, She's on a roll
Gonna burn me down to my soul
I'm as high as a circuis wire
Getting hot like a bonfire

She's free, she's no ones pet
Beautiful, intellegent
You absolutely must respect
The way, she's right as rain
There's a part of her
You're never gonna change
She's unpredictable
Soften you with words and then
She'll eat you like a cannibal
Right, she can go all night
Maybe give you what you want
Maybe put up a fight

CHORUS

Repeat Verse 1

CHORUS


6. THE BITTER PIL

Sometimes I'm lost
And then I'm found
Sometimes I feel
Turned inside out
I'm often silent when I'm screaming inside

Instead of love
We tend to hate
We never quite
Appreciate
How much the other person cares or tries

Hold me close
Don't ever let me go
Cause I'm confused
But maybe someday I will know why

Sometimes I'm right as rain
And when it rains it pours
You're such a mystery
Why can't I unlock the door

All that glitters isn't gold
Too much is overkill
Love can be beautiful
Or a bitter pill

And when I'm right
I'm also wrong
We give and take
To get along
There's so much more to this than I ever dreamed

And when you smile
I have to laugh
And when you cry
I'm torn in half
So calm and yet so loose at the seams

Oh
Hold me close
Don't ever let me go
I'm confused
But maybe someday I will know why

Sometimes I'm right as rain
And when it rains it pours
You're such a mystery
Why can't I unlock the door

All that glitters isn't gold
Too much is overkill
Love can be beautiful
Or a bitter pill

Liebe kann eine bittere pille sein
Eine bittere pille
Liebe ist eine bittere pille
Eine bittere pille
Liebe kann eine bittere pille sein

Ich will ein bier
Ich will besoffen sein
Die ganze welt ist dumm
Mir steht es so im hals
Ich sage dir
Die liebe kann nur luge sein

Hold me close
Don't ever let me go
Cause I'm confused
But maybe someday I will know why

Sometimes I'm right as rain
And when it rains it pours
You're such a mystery
Why can't I unlock the door

All that glitters isn't gold
Too much is overkill
Love can be beautiful
Or a bitter pill

Or a bitter pill


7. HOLLYWOOD (SO FAR SO GOOD)

I live in Hollywood
Right beneath the stars
I walk around, they drive
Incredibly long black cars

I think that they could learn
A thing or two from me
While money is buying your house
It's selling your sanity

They take love for granted
Say it grows on trees
The only thing I've ever seen
On a tree was leaves

I got a girl
She keeps my feet on the ground
I concentrate on her
I don't need to shop around

CHORUS
So sweet, tastes like honey
Right down to her feet
Who could ask for more
My girl is sweeter than a candy store

I go to work
I work hard all day
She works as hard as me
'Cause we got bills to pay

We share a roof
We share a bed
But unlike the rich we share
What's in eachothers' head

CHORUS

CHORUS

I live in Hollywood
Right beneath the stars
So far it's prett good
Pretty good so far

So far so good
So far so good
So far so good
So far so good



8. ALL MY BRIDGES ARE BURNING

Jimmy goes through the money like a millionaire
Bills pile up around him but he doesnt care
He picks up his best friend at the local scene
He wraps it up in the corner of a magazine oh yeah

Prechorus:
(All night) God he hates to be lonely
(Daylight) Hasn't seen any sun in 3 days
(Know why) Every time it goes doen you can hear him say

Chorus:
Oh all my bridges are burning
Watch them go down in flames
Oh i cant even remember my name
All my bridges are burning

Jimmy treats every night like a holiday
He makes a friend or two but they never stay
Takin care of number one is his point of view
But if you keep him high he'll be friends with you

Prechorus
(All night) God he hates to be loney
(Daylight) Hasn't seen any sun in 3 days
(Know why) Everytime it goes down you can hear him say

Chorus:
Oh all my briges are burning
Watch them go down in flames
Ohh i cant even remember my name
All my bridges are burning

Bridge
Wipe the sweat from your lip
Take a look around you get hip
Looking in from outside
Slowly watching yourself let you (die)

Oh all my bridges are burning
Watch them go down in flames
Oh i cant even remember my own name
All my bridges are burning
(All my bridges are burning)
Yeah watch them go down in flames
Can't even remember my own name
All my bridges are burning oh yeah


9. QUICKSAND

Gonna write a letter to my baby
And this is what I'm gonna say
Second thought I think I'll take the time
To say it to her face

I can't eat, I can't sleep
I feel I'm going down for the last time
I'm sinking in your sea
Of insecurity

CHORUS
And do I love you - yes I do
But I love my own life too

As I lay here, holding your hand
I can't help but fell you don't understand
The tighter you hold on
The more that it's feeling
Like quicksand

Our fate is written in the stars
It's written on your face
You're holding too tight to my heart
It's gonna burst and leave an empty space

CHOURS
And do I love you - yes I do
But I love my own life too

CHOURS
And do I love you - yes I do
But I love my own life too


10. LET IT RAIN

I can't get up the never to call you
But I want to call so bad
To find out, who's holding on to
The most beautiful thing I ever had

Babe I guess I never really took the time
To show how much I care

CHORUS
Let it rain (rain)
Let it rain down on me
Hide these tears I'm crying
So no one can see
That I'm still not over you
But if you're over me
Let it rain (rain)
Let it rain down on me

We used to lay together like spoons
It was the only way I could sleep
And this pillow is a poor subsitute
For your body next to me

I reach to pull you closer
And remember you're not there

CHORUS
The rain is not so bad after all
It camouflages eveyr tear that falls
It cleanses me of all the blame
I've put upon myself
I hear your married now
Well I hope he treats you well
Oh let it rain

CHORUS
The rain is not so bad after all
It camouflages eveyr tear that falls
It cleanses me of all the blame
I've put upon myself
I hear your married now
Well I hope he treats you well
Oh let it rain

I can't get up the never to call you


11. Inside Out

Get a break and I understand
You can only be with another man
In the sack, hop on the back
Honey, to me it's all out of track

CHORUS
You've been gone, baby
Who's spinning around and around and around
Should've been gone, scream and shout
Hold me baby, turn me inside out

Sculptures who would act so fly
Don't you know you're driving me insane
You can have more than you'll ever need
Why I gotta live with your 2 o'clock lies

CHORUS
You've been gone, baby
Who's spinning around and around and around
Should've been gone, scream and shout
Hold me baby, turn me inside out

Take it, take it, take it, take it
Hold it, hold it, hold it
Now I'm naked and I understand
You can only fuck another man
In the sack, hop on the back
Honey you and me is out of track

CHORUS
You've been gone, baby
Who's spinning around and around and around
Should've been gone, scream and shout
Hold me baby, turn me inside out


12. SAD THERESA

Sad Theresa
On your front porch swing
The lights are twinkling bright
But nobody's home

Oh sweet country thing
With your dress hiked up to your knees
Waiting on a call
From faith, hope or charity

CHOURS
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight
Can I come over, come over
Would your mother say its alright
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight

Ballerina
On your bedroom door
Well I know that you've got dreams
But I've got my own
Maybe someday
I'll hit those big city lights
But I'll never forget your face
On warm summer nights

CHORUS
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight
Can I come over, come over
Would your mother say its alright
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight

I've always wanted to sing
And I've always wanted to be
Somebody's idol, somebody's daydream
Maybe their fantasy

CHORUS
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight
Can I come over, come over
Would your mother say its alright
Oh Theresa, can I come over tonight

Oh Theresa can I come over tonight?
