1. LIVING PROOF

Why does love have to?
Where does it go to
Outta my door?
How much have you got?
Is it enough for me
Or will I want more?

Oh,oh, you tell me you just want some fun
Oh, oh, I'm trapped between the fire
And the man with the gun

Time in a vacuum,
Waiting for someone to say what they think
But all that pretending doesn't convince me
'Cause they just want to buy me a drink

Oh, oh, you tell me you want to be free
Oh, oh, baby, I'm trapped between the devil
And the deep blue sea

It's night in the city,
I'm filled with self-pity
I'm taking the air
If somebody hits me
Here in this city,
I swear I just don't care
Oh, oh, just looking for proof
Oh, oh, I'm trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof
Oh, oh, just looking for proof
Oh, oh, I'm trapped like a cat on a hot tin roof

I got to have proof,
I got to have proof,
I got to have proof,
I got to have proof (Repeat)


2. HAUNTING ME

Sit down, girl, beside me,
Come tell me 'bout your life
Got so much to talk about,
Yeah, we could stay out all night

Long time ago we were lovers
Like no one ever knew
Long time ago
Your face was falling out of view

Haunting me
I used to say that you were haunting me
Haunting me
You know your memory was haunting me

Now when I'm looking at you
I see more than just a pretty face
Well, I say I want you with me, girl,
Because no one could take your place

Long time ago we were too free
And easy to fool
Long time ago we thought
That the fire would cool


3. INSOMNIA

When you've done something wrong
And karma has come
To settle the score with you
The snake in you is crawling
Pinned to the ground,
Eyes open wide and blue

Insomnia
Closer, but no closer
Insomnia
Closer, but no closer

The night you were laid
When you had it made
When everything fell into place
Higher and higher
Too fast to miss a beat,
Body and bones as well

Insomnia
Burning like a hell
Insomnia
Oh, burning, yes, burning like a hell

Where does it come from?
Where does it go?
Flowing over your skin,
Walking and talking,
Dancing 'till dawn,
When you just can't give in to

Insomnia
Waiting to get you
Insomnia
Waiting to get you

Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
Don't let it, don't let it, inso...
Don't let it, don't let it,
Don't let it get you


4. HELPLESS

Ooh, there's something happening, ooh
Ooh, there's something happening, ooh (Repeat)
Won't you take my love forever,
Won't you take my love for you,
Won't you take my love together,
Won't you give me your love too?

I will give you my love gladly
And I hope you'll give me yours
Somehow we can live together
Could not love you any more

I'm so helpless, helpless
I can feel you're helpless too (x2)
I'm so helpless, helpless
So helpless without you


5. PAY THE PRICE

Hey you know
Baby don't care who's mad about her,
Always got the boys hanging out to get her,
Knows just when to smile
But she can bite like a crocodile
Don't want to get heavy, don't ask me why,
Got everything in place from her foot to her eyelash
Just might dance, but not for a while
She don't want nobody cramping her style

Knows it when you think she's nice,
But if you want her to be yours, boy,
You got to pay the price

Better get ready for tears and sorrow
She'll be here today and she'll be gone tomorrow
Waving her pretty hand
She's got a date with another man

Too busy to stay in one place too long,
Got itchy feet, got to be moving on
See you again, out on the tiles,
Your broken heart will mend, baby, up in a while

Now you know she's cold as ice
And if you want her to be yours, boy,
You got to pay the price


6. NEW RISING STAR

The ugly mess you thought you were is fading fast
Now something's spoken through its virtues
The night of black is rolling back at long last
The wheel of fate turns to your fortune

New rising star, sinister symphony
New rising sun shines on in sympathy

Skin deep-so cheap, this thing called beauty
Beholder, railroader, cold shoulder
Identity is more than you find in the mirror
I watched you grow your own in the dust of the bones
from your older days

New rising star, sinister symphony
New rising sun shines on in sympathy

You were a stranger in your homeland
Reborn on a spage-age street, transformation complete
The fags and bitches, rags and riches,
leave them to the rest
Your soul has found its pride inside its own breast

New rising star, sinister symphony
New rising sun shines on in sympathy


7. MASTER OF DISGUISE

I'm a master of disguise,
Mystery in your eyes,
Travelling the backroads of your country
Well, you think you've got my number
And then again, you wonder
Will you ever get to find the real me

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream

So you'd like me to reveal
All that I know and feel
At the risk of causing panic and destruction
Well, there's a method to this madness
I don't mean to cause you sadness
My course is strictly governed by instruction

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream

I'm a master of disguise
Not about to compromise
My position in this scheme of worldly values
Ah, they're calling out my name
I've promised to remain
Ever faithful to the memory of what is true

Things are not always
As they first may seem
It's like living in a dream

Oh, I'm living in a dream,
I'm high, I'm high
In the cold, cold night, I'm high


8. LIFEINE

Like a fighter that lost his will to kill
You knew it was time to go,
But as I lay in a state of surrender
You chose me to say your last hello
Like a fighter that lost his will to kill
You knew it was time to go
You came upon me
As I lay in a state of surrender
You say you're not afraid
You know me well

Because I felt you die
Why did you say you would touch me?
The wind blew sugar-sweet
As you passed that silver life line


9. COME ON

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted,
All day long I'm walkin', 'cause I can't get my car started
Laid off from my job, and I can't afford to check it
I wish someone would come along right into it and wreck it!
Come on! I can't get started,
Come on! Since me and my baby parted,
Come on! I can't afford to check it,
I wish someone would come along right into it and wreck it!
Come on!

Everything is wrong, since I've been without you
Every night I lie awake, thinking about you
Every time the phone rings, it sounds like thunder
Some stupid jerk tryin' to reach another number!

Come on! Since I've been without you,
Come on! Steady thinkin' about you,
Come on! Phone sounds like thunder
Some stupid jerk tryin' to reach another number!
Come on!

Now everything is wrong since I last saw you baby,
I really want to see you, and I don't mean maybe
I'm doin' everything to try to make you see
That I belong to you, and you belong to me

Come on! I wanna see you baby,
Come on! I don't mean maybe
Come on! I'm tryin' to make you see
That I belong to you, and you belong to me!
Come on!

Come on, come on, come on...


10. FAST JOHNNY

I fell in love with a dark-eyed lady,
She seemed to be on her own,
And from nowhere when I came over
A princess without a throne
That night as I was takin' her home,
I got a feelin' that we weren't alone
Keep your hands on the wheel, we got a tail there,
Tryin' to put us off the road
What are you gonna do when a man from her past catches up with you?
What are you gonna do when he wants to make a claim on you?

Fast Johnny, I'm flat on the boards
Fast Johnny, I'm cutting the corners
Fast Johnny, I'm closin' the door
Fast Johnny, don't chase me in your car no more!

You know nobody can drive quite like I can,
Runnin' every red light in town,
We danced on the floor, danced on the street,
Danced as the wheels turned around
Maybe Johnny, you'll meet your match
When you look into my Chevy's eyes,
Keep your engine hot and running,
'Cause this sweet little honey's gonna take you by surprise

What are you gonna do when a man from her past catches up with you?
What are you gonna do when he wants to make a claim on you?

Fast Johnny, I'm flat on the boards
Fast Johnny, I'm cuttin' the corners
Fast Johnny, I'm closin' the door
Fast Johnny, don't chase me in your car no more!

Repeat and close


11. BLOWIN' FREE

I thought I had a girl
I know because I've seen her
Her hair was golden brown
Blowin' free like a cornfield

She was far away
I found it hard to reach her
She told me you can try
But it's impossible to find her

In my dreams everything was all right
In your schemes you can only try

I thought I had a girl
I know because I've seen her
Her hair was golden brown
Blowin' free like a cornfield


12. HELPLESS

Ooh, there's something happening, ooh
Ooh, there's something happening, ooh
Won't you take my love forever,
Won't you take my love for you,
Won't you take my love together,
Won't you give me your love too?

I will give you my love gladly
And I hope you'll give me yours
Somehow we can live together
Could not love you any more

I'm so helpless, helpless
I can feel you're helpless too
