young

Head for the hill, pick up your feet and let's go

Fire on the hill, pick up your green on your way

And when you find a piece of them in your site

Fire at will, don't you waste no time

And out of the black

a figure forms

A soldier in the sky

With fake white love

Trying to set you free

 

Fire from the hills, pick up speed and let's go

Fire for real, yeah, shoot to kill, with our aim

Head for the hills, yes, eyes on the camp fire glow

Creep up there like a white mink hiding in snow

 

Another thought of the unaware

Addiction in disguise

With a drop of a badge

You will kill, for me

Run for the hills, pick up your feet and let's go

We did our jobs, pick up speed, now let's move

The trees can't grow without the sun in their eyes

And you won't live...if your too afraid to die

 

Hold on tight, yes, hold on tight, you're too slow

Fire at the breeze that blows these thoughts

through our minds

Fire at the thieves that steal the thoughts

from our heads

i'm on my way

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i say i’m on my way….

i say i’m on my way…

and i’m going to hell

 

the fire keeps burning every year

trying to lose every last fear

the music on the air on a magic night

on my radio it feels so right

it’s destiny….oh yea

 

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

(bang the drum just a little bit louder)

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell

i’m on my way and i’m going to hell​

yea, oh yea, oh yea......YEA

on the run

Out of place, out of space

Out of form, live or gone

i know how, show you how

I'm on the run

 

They are out of love, if out of drugs

Out of form, bad tongue

I know now, show you how

I'm on the run

 

I can now, show you how

I'm on the run

 

Out of view, no more jew

Out of grief, I get peace

 

I can now, show you how

I'm on the run

 

I can now, show you how

I'm on the run

 

On the run, on the run

On the run, on the run

On the run, on the run

On the run, on the run

On the run, on the run

vicious karma tenfold

I must be feeling low
I talked to god in a phonebox

on my way home
I told you my answer
I left you my dreams

on your answering machine
 
Come on
Let the spirit inside you
Don't wait to be found
Come along with my sound
Let the spirit move you
Let the waves come up
They'll fuse you
I never met no one to deny the sound
 
I must be going insane
I called the doctor so he can relieve
He's got a little pill for me
Just a little luxury
Helps me ruin the day
 
Come on
Let the spirit inside you
Don't wait to be found
Come along with our sound
Let the spirit move you
Let the waves come up
They'll fuse you
I'll never meet anyone

who will deny our sound
 
bring it on...
Come on
Come on
Come on
Come on
 
There's only one life
There's only one life
 
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
 
This is a big
Fuck you!
This is a big
Fuck you!
 
Come on!
Come on now

highest ground

Why? drink the water? from my hand?
Contagious as you think I am
Just tilt my sun towards your domain
Your cup runneth over again
 
Don't scream about, don't think aloud
Turn your head now, baby just spit them out
Don't worry about, don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now, baby just spit it out
 
Why follow me to highest ground?
Lost as they say I am
Don't throw away your basic needs
Ambiance and revelry (...partying)
 
Don't scream about, don't think aloud
Turn your head now, baby, just spit me out
Don't worry about, don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now, baby, just spit me out
 
December promises you gave unto me
December whispers of treachery
 
December clouds are now covering me
December songs no longer I sing
 
Don't scream about, don't think aloud
Turn your head now, baby, just spit them out
 
Don't worry about, don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now, baby, just spit it out
 
Don't scream about, don't think aloud
Turn your head now, baby, just spit it out
 
Don't worry about, don't speak of doubt
Turn your head now, baby just spit me out

coma

You've put me in a coma

And I don't think I wanna

Ever come back to this

World again

 

I don't like it in a coma

and no one's ever gonna

Oh make me come back to this

Place again

 

Now, I feel as if I'm floating away

I can't feel all the pressure, and I like it this way...

Now my body's calling

My body's calling...

Won't you come back to this world again?

 

Suspended deep in a sea of black

I've got the light at the end, I've got the bones on the mast

Well, I've gone sailing

I've gone sailing

 

I could leave so easily

My friends are calling back to me, I said, they're...

They're leaving' it all up to me...

When... all I needed was clarity, and...

Someone to tell me what the fuck is going on...

Goddamn it

 

Slipping farther and farther away

It's a miracle how long we can stay

In a world where our minds created...

with a world that's full of shit

 

(This guy is coming straight directly from the rehab program...

we're losing him (start an IV Please), (im not an addict)

(he's not addict, i know this guy)

Come on, his airways... someone's got to protect his airways, I want two.

Where's the defibrillator?

(boyer, boyer)

Two IV's over here please, that's two more now, we're losing him (let's go) (help me)

Okay, respond, we're losing this guy (help me)

(boyer, boyer)

Where's the, where's the crash- what's going on? what the fuck is going on...

anyways...in protective two IV's

(Bastards...lose the bastards...there is one bastard...lose the bastard....)

slow motion here (let's get him in ER...get him out of here...)

He is going out on us

Who's got the defibrillator?

 

Please understand me...

I'm climbing through the wreckage of all my twisted dreams

And this cheap investigation just can't stifle all my screams

And I'm waiting at the crossroads, waiting for you...

 

Waiting for you

Where are you?

 

No one's going to bother me anymore...(ohio)

No one's going to mess with my head no more (ohio)

I can't understand what all the fightings for

it's so nice here, down off the shore

I wish you could see this, 'cause there's nothing to see

It's peaceful here and it's fine with me

Not like the world where I used to live

Where I never really wanted to live

Ah

 

Okay, we're starting to lose this guy

I want that IV and his airway protected (let's get some people in here)

Get the crash cart please, we're losing this guy, he's going under (give me an airway please)

Clear

Zap him again (boyer!!)

How about an IV, stat?

Okay you better protect the airway, you're starting to lose him (clear)

Zap the son of a bitch again

 

where's izzy...

Listen to me

it wasnt axl, are you listening to me?

No?

don't walk away from me "Get back, get back"

where is she...

(You are such a fucking prick, I am so pissed with you

All I hear is bullshit, all the time

All you ever wanna do is have sex, sex sex

I just don't give a shit anymore)

 

thats not her...

not her...

however, that is true

You live your life like it's a coma

Won't you tell me why we'd wanna?

With all the reasons you give, it's...

It's kinda hard to believe

 

And who am I to tell you... that I've seen..

Any reason... why you should stay?

Maybe we'd be better off without you, anyway

 

You got a one way ticket, on your last chance ride

Got a one way ticket to your suicide

Got a one way ticket, and there's no way out alive

 

And all this crass communication that has left you in the cold

Isn't much for consolation when you feel so weak and old

And if home is where the heart is, then there's stories to be told

No, you don't need a doctor, no one else can heal your soul

 

Got your mind in submission, got your life on the line ...

Nobody pulled the trigger, they just stepped aside

They'll be down by the water...

While you watch 'em waving goodbye

 

They be calling in the morning, they be hanging on the phone

They be waiting for an answer, but you know nobody's home

When the phone stopped ringing

It was nobody's fault, but your own

 

There were always ample warnings

There were always subtle signs

And you would have seen it coming

Did we gave you too much time?

 

And when you said that no one's listening...

Why'd your laced best friend drop a dime?

Sometimes, we get so tired of waiting
For a way to spend our time..

 

And it's so easy to be social

It's so easy to be cool

Yeah, it's easy to be hungry, when you ain't got shit to lose?

And I wish that I could help you with what you hope to find...

But I'm still out here, waiting...

Watching reruns of my life...

 

When you reach the point of breaking

you know it's gonna take some time

To heal the broken memories

That another man would need...

just to survive

 

 

one in a million

One, two, one, two, three, four..

Guess I needed some time to get away

I needed some peace of mind

Some peace of mind that'll stay

So I thumbed it down to sixth in L.A.

Maybe a Greyhound could be my way

 

Police and niggers, that's right

Get outta my way

Don't need to buy none of your

Gold chains today

Now don't need no bracelets

Clamped in front of my back

Just need my ticket, 'til then

Won't you cut me some slack

 

You're one in a million

Yeah that's what you are

You're one in a million babe

You're a shooting star

Maybe someday we'll see you

Before you make us cry

You know we tried to reach you

Ego much to high (denzel..with an opp on the repeat lyric)

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

 

Immigrants and faggots

They make no sense to me

They come to our country

And think they'll do as they please

Like start some mini-Iran

Or spread some fucking disease

And they talk so many goddamn ways

It's all Greek to me

 

Well some say I'm lazy

And others say that's aint me

Some say I'm crazy

And i always will never be

And it's been such a long time

Since I knew right from wrong

It's all the means to an end and...

I keep it moving along

Hey, hey, hey, yeah

 

You're one in a million

You're a shooting star

You're one in a million babe

You know that you are

Maybe someday we'll see you

You can make us cry

You know we tried to reach you

your ego nigger, much too high

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

 

Radicals and racists

Don't point your finger at me

I'm a small town white boy

Just tryin' to make ends meet

 

Don't need your religion

Don't watch that much TV

Just makin' my livin' baby

Well that's enough for me

 

You're one in a million

Yeah that's what you are

You're one in a million babe

You're a shooting star

Maybe someday we'll see you

Before you make us cry

 

You know we tried to reach you

Ego way to fucking high

Much too high yeah, yeah, yeah

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high yeah, yeah, yeah

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

Much too high

the debut album...

ANYTIME AT ALL

1973

(stevens-stradlin-demarco-martin-cardi)

(

Now you on the run son

Since 1981

You went and did some things

And spoiled the fun

 

Yeah, you got the FBI

They ain't on your side

Yeah you're caught foolin' friend

 

With a senator's wife

Oh I don't need it

Well no one does

 

Just sit on this groove and chew

As the heat grew and grew

A life of taking Love

She fit like a glove

 

And in due time

Yeah I'll be there

Well hello Harmony

Whatcha doin' for free?

 

Yeah get on your knees you freak

And please please me

A life of solitude,

Yeah, one with me, no you

 

Life on the run son

It's all you knew

And I don't need it

No, no one does

 

Homegrown...
Rock to the rhythm, and bop to the beat of the radio
If you ain't got the slang, you got the face to play the role
You can play with me

And all the bros...
Try for the courage and try for charity's tight clothes
She got a hat and all he has is his asshole
She'll be a' boppin to me

And her hair-do...
and her with the lipstick kisses, oh yeah that's the right move
Make me feel like I'm the one who moves you
The only one you see

Now take me down...
Don't you let those tears quench the thirsty ground
Don't you be so scared that you can't make a sound
Make a sound for me

All of London sings...
and England's swings 'cause they sure love the tales I bring
You know the rainy days they ain't so bad when you're the King
The King they want to see

Homegrown...
Rock to the rhythm, and bop to the beat of the radio
You ain't gotta sing, oh you got the face to play the role
You can play with me

And her hair-do
And those lipstick kisses, oh yeah that's the right move
Makes me feel like I'm the one who's moving you
The only one you see...

All of London sings..
'England's swings... and they sure love the tales I bring
And those the rainy days they ain't so bad when you're the King
The King they want to see

Some people like to gamble
But you, you always lose
Some people like to rock 'n' roll
You're always singin' the blues


You gotta nasty disposition
No one really knows the reason why
You gotta bad, bad reputation
Gonna hang your head down and cry

You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck
You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck

Thirteen's my lucky number
To you it means stay inside
Black cat done crossed my path
No reason to run and hide

You're looking through a cracked mirror
No one really knows the reason why
Your enemies are getting nearer
Gonna hang down your head and cry

You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck
You got bad, bad luck
Bad, bad luck

Some people go to church on Sundays
Others they pray at home

You tell them that there ain't no God
That they're better off standing alone
You're always scratching at the eight ball


No one really knows the reason why
You act like the top and then you fall
Gonna hang down your head and cry

 

We all come in from the cold
We come down from the wire
An everybody warms themselves
To the same fire
Sometimes we get burned
You'd think sometime we'd learn
The one you love is the one that should take you higher
You ain't got no one
You better go back out and find her

Just like children hiding in a closet
Can't tell what's goin' on outside
Sometimes we're so far off the beaten track
We'll get taken for a ride
By a parlor trick or some words of wit
A hidden hand up a sleeve
To think the one you love
Could hurt you now
Is a little hard to believe
Everybody darlin' sometimes
Bites the hand that feeds

When I look around
Everybody always brings me down
Well is it them or me
Well I just can't see
and there ain't no peace to found...

 

And if someone really cared
Well they'd take the time to spare
A moment to try and understand
Another one's despair
Remember in this game we call life
That no one said it's fair

Breakdown
Let me hear it now
Breakdown
Let me hear it now
Yeah
Breakdown
Let me hear it now
Breakdown
Let me hear it now...


Get down with yo' bad self
Alright

I've come to know the cold
And I think of it as home


When there ain't enough of me
To go around

I'd rather be left alone...
 

So, if I call you out of habit
I'm out of love and I gotta have it
Would you give it to me
If I fit your needs
Like when we both knew...

when we had it


And now the damage is done
We're back out on the run
Funny how everything was roses
When we held on to the guns...
Just because you're winnin'
Don't mean you're the lucky one

Breakdown
Let me hear it now
Breakdown
(Yeah..
...Breakdown)
Breakdown
Let me hear it now!

There goes the Challenger being chased
By the blue blue meanies on wheels
The vicious traffic squad cars are
After our lone driver
The last American hero
The the electric sitar
The demi-god
The super driver of the golden west!


Two nasty nazi cars are close behind
The beautiful lone driver
The police cars are getting closer-closer
Closer to our soul hero in his soul mobile yeah baby!


They about to strike, they gonna get him, smash! rape!
The last beautiful free soul on this planet

So it is written... if the evil spirit
Arms the tiger with claws
Brahman provided wings for the dove
Thus spake the super guru"
"Did you hear that"

 

Well something's going wrong inside of you
Burdens bearing down and seeping through


Well, I don't wanna bleed anymore for you
Oh and I don't wanna breathe any hatred too

Watching while your world just floats around
And now you want to move 'cause it's crashing down


Well, I don't wanna sing you guarantees
And I don't want to cling to our use to be's

So take your heart, just take your soul
Just get yourself on out of here
Just take your hurt, just take your pain
Just get yourself on out of here

Wasting time, time
That's all you'll do if you're waiting for me


Wasting time, time
I don't see what you think I see

Wasting time, time
That's all you'll do if you're waiting for me


Wasting time, time
I don't want what you think I need

Wasting time, time
That's all you'll do if you're waiting for me


Wasting time, time
I don't see what you think I see

Wasting time, time
That's all you'll do if you're waiting for me


Wasting time, time
I don't want what you think I need

 

Inside is
A heart of summer soul
Don't let them
Take it away

Cause inside
Something solid gold
So don't let them
Throw it away

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

Follow
Your own path from here
So don't listen
To what they say

Cause inside
You've a heart of gold
So don't let them
Take this away

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't fault me
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

Inside
A heart of pure soul
A sun rising
And falling away, like your soul

Cause here comes
Something wonderful
So don't let them
Throw it away

Words they meant nothing
So you can't hurt me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't stop me
On summer days like these

I said your eyes, they say nothing
So you can't stop me
On summer days like these
I said words they mean nothing
So you can't hurt me

 

When you're talking to yourself
And nobody's home
You can fool yourself
You came in this world alone
(Alone)

So nobody ever told you baby
How it was gonna be
So what'll happen to you baby
Guess we'll have to wait and see
One, two

Old at heart but I'm only twenty eight
And I'm much too young
To let love break my heart
Young at heart but it's getting much too late
To find ourselves so far apart

I don't know how you're supposed to find me lately
And what more could you ask from me
How could you say that I never needed you
When you took everything
Said you took everything from me

Young at heart and it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know can seem to help me now
Old at heart and I musn't hesitate
If I'm to find my own way out

Still talkin' to myself
And nobody's home
(Alone)

So nobody ever told us baby
How it was gonna be
So what'll happen to us baby
Guess we'll have to wait and see

When I find out all the reasons
Maybe I'll find another way
Find another day
With all the changing seasons of my life
Maybe I'll get it right next time


An now that you've been broken down
Got your head out of the clouds
You're back down on the ground
And you don't talk so loud
And you don't walk so proud
Any more, and what for

Well I jumped into the river
Too many times to make it home
I'm out here on my own, an drifting all alone
If it doesn't show give it time
To read between the lines

'Cause I see the storm getting closer
And the waves they get so high
Seems everything we've ever known's here
Why must it drift away and die

I'll never find anyone to replace you
Guess I'll have to make it through, this time
- oh this time
Without you...
I knew the storm was getting closer
And all your friends said I was too high...


So, everything we've ever known's here
I never wanted it to die

Giving me cause so I may yearn
Giving me words so I may learn
I want more I want more


Giving me thoughts that I may keep
Giving me dreams so I may sleep
I want more I want more


Still all I need is love...
So give me more


Giving me calm to fall into
Giving me hope to guide me through
I want more I want more


Giving me light to see through tears
Giving me strength to crush my fears
I want more I want more


Still all I need is love...
So give me more


I won't bring you down
I won't bring you down anymore...


Giving me choice so I may seek...
Giving me faith so I'll believe...
I want more I want more


Giving me breath of...your mercy
Giving yourself to... comfort me
I want more I want more


Still all I need is love...
So give me more
