Stranded in this spooky town
Stoplights are swaying and the phone lines are down
This floor is crackling cold
She took my heart, I think she took my soul
With the moon I run
Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

Driven by the strangled vein
Showing no mercy I do it again
Open up your eye
You keep on crying, baby
I’ll bleed you dry
The skies are blinking at me
I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

And it's coming closer
And it's coming closer

You, shimmy shook my bone
Leaving me stranded all in love on my own
What do you think of me
Where am I now? Baby where do I sleep
Feel so good but I'm old,
2000 years of chasing taking its toll

And it’s coming closer

. . .


You fall, my pride,
Don't ever need t'apologize,
As your lips unfold,
Shakin' purple from the cold

You better learn to crawl,
You better learn to crawl,
Before I walk away,
Before I walk away

You broke, my mouth,
The bloody bits are spittin' out
Your grave, unscathed,
The worm is countin' down the day

He wants to see you crawl,
He wants to see you crawl,
Before I walk away,
Before I walk away

The reds and the whites and abused,
The crucified USA,
I said the prophecy unfolds,
All hell is surely on its way

Cuz the rat and the fly,
They're searchin' for an alibi,
As we wait the wrath,
They never went to Sunday mass

They want to see us crawl,
They want to see us crawl,
Before they walk away,
Before they walk away

The reds and the whites and abused,
The crucified USA,
I said the prophecy unfolds,
All hell is surely on its way

. . .


Lay where you're laying
Don't make a sound
I know they're watching
They're watching

All the commotion
the killing of pain
Has people talking
Talking

You
Your sex is on fire

The dark of the alley
The break of the day
Ahead while I'm driving
I'm driving

Soft lips are open
Them knuckles are pale
Feels like you're dying
You're dying

You
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

Hot as a fever
Rattling bones
I could just taste it
Taste it

But it's not forever
But it's just tonight
Oh we're still the greatest
The greatest
The greatest

You
Your sex is on fire
You
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire
And You
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

i've been roaming around
always looking down at all i see
painted faces fill the places i can't reach

you know that i could use somebody
you know that i could use somebody
someone like you

and all you know
and how you speak
countless lovers undercover of the street

you know that i could use somebody
you know that i could use somebody
someone like you

off in the night,
while you live it up, i'm off to sleep
waging war to shake the poet and the beat

i hope it's gonna make you notice
i hope it's gonna make you notice
someone like me
someone like me
someone like me

go and let it out
someone like you
somebody
someone like you
somebody
someone like you
somebody

i've been roaming around
always looking down at all i see

. . .


Well
I could dance all night
And some of the day
That's how I play
That's how I play

I say who are you
No matter who you are
So you dance all night
And you dance all day

I say
I say

Gonna build a fire
Gonna smoke it up
Gonna sip this wine
And pass the cup

These avenues and
these reseviors
We gonna show this town
How to kiss these stars

I say
I say

You've come to kill
Gonna spend it high
Your parents grieve
I know they are right

And then talking to you
Well they calm you down
So it's all for you
who let you down

I say
I say
I say
I say

Just wanna take you hand
I'm gonna drive you home
Just gonna keep on
Keep on, keep on
And you gonna have a rest

. . .


What a night for a dance,
you know, i'm a dancing machine
put the fire in my bones
with the sweet taste of kerosene

i get lost in the lights(?),
so high, i don't want to come down
to face the loss of the good thing that i found

woo hoo hoo
woo hoo hoo

in the dark of the night
i can hear you calling my name
with the hardest of hearts
i still feel full of pain

so i drink and i smoke
and i ask
if you're ever around
even though it was me
who drove us right in the ground

see, the time we shared
it was precious to me
all the while i was dreaming of revelry

on a run, baby, run
like a steam down a mountainside
with the wind in my back
i don't ever even bat an eye
just know it was you all along
who had a hole in my heart
but the demon in me
was the best of friends from the start

so the time we shared
it was precious to me
all a while i was dreaming of revelry
dreaming of revelry

and i told myself
for the way you go
it rained so hard
it felt like snow
everything came
a' tumbling down on me
in the back of the woods
in dark of the night
careless, --(?), your moonlight
everything just felt so empty
dreaming of revelry

. . .


Oh she's only seventeen
Whine whine whine, weep over everything
Bloody Mary breakfast busting up the street
Brothers fighting, when's the baby gonna sleep
Heaving ship too sails away
Said it's a culmination of a story and a goodbye session
It's a tick of our time and the tic in her head that made me feel so strange
So I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of your Spanish tongue that made me wanna stay

Oh she's only seventeen
Whine whine whine, weep over everything
Bloody Mary breakfast busting up the street
Brothers fighting, when's the baby gonna sleep
Heaving ship too sails away
Said it's a culmination of a story and a goodbye session
It's a tick of our time and the tic in her head that made me feel so strange
Said I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of her Spanish tongue that made me wanna stay

I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it's a one in a million
Oh it's the rolling of your Spanish tongue that made me wanna stay

. . .


I got a notion that says it doesn't feel right
got the answer in your story today
you gave me a sign that didn't feel right

so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been here before
so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been here before

i just wanted to know if i could go home
been rambling day after day
everyone says they don't know

so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been there before
so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been there before

i got a notion that says it doesn't feel right
i just wanted to know if i could go home

so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been there before
so don't knock it, don't knock it, you been there before

. . .


Get back on track, pick me up some bottles of booze
Fickle freshman, probly thinks she's cooler than you
A hay ride at 5, everybodys comin around
So go press you skirt, word is there's a new girl in town...

I call shotgun, you can play your RnB tunes
The fellow?, it always comes a little too soon
The land of the free, freshened up from babyfaced shame
Put your eyes on me, and I know a place that we can't get away...

Just say I want you, just exactly like I used to
Cos baby this is ooooonly bringin me down...

Home-boy's so proud, finally got the video proof
The night vision shows she was only duckin the truth
It's heavy I know, black guy with the gift down below
A choke and a gag, she spit up n came back for more...

She sed I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is ooooonly bringin me down...
She sed I want you

I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is oooonly bringin me down...
I said I want you, just exactly like I used to
And baby this is oooonly bringin me down

. . .


Taken to the floor
with the reach to the sky
i loosen my tie
i loosen my tie

locking down the door
with the rhythm and rhyme
i loosen my tie
i loosen my tie

trying to recall
what you want me to say
i shake it your way
i shake it your way

counting on the night
for a beautiful day
i shake it your way
i shake it your way

and i say,
you can't get enough
now you can't get enough

given a chance
i wanna be somebody
if for one dance
i wanna be somebody
open the door
it's gonna make you love me
facing the door
i wanna be somebody

now it's your time
and you know where you stand
with a gun in your hand
with a gun in your hand
now i'm no longer an ordinary man
was this your big plan,
your gun in your hand?

and i say,
you can't get enough
now you can't get enough

given a chance
i wanna be somebody
if for one dance
i wanna be somebody
open the door
it's gonna make you love me
facing the door
i wanna be somebody

be somebody
be somebody

. . .


I'm on the corner waiting for a light to come on
that's when i know that you're alone
it's cold in the desert water never sees the ground
special ones walk on without sound

told me you love me, that i'd never die alone
hand over your heart let's go on
everyone knowed it everyone has seen the signs
i've always been known to cross lines

i never ever cried when i was feeling down
ive always been scared of the sound
jesus don't love me no-one ever carried my load
im too young to feel this old

nobody knows
nobody sees
nobody but me
