Sometimes

Sometimes I can't believe my brain
And sometimes I can't believe my brain
And sometimes, you gotta take a chance on yourself
Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind
Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read

Too much to read your mind

Sometimes I can't believe your brain
And sometimes, I can't believe your brain
And sometimes you gotta take a chance on yourself
And sometimes you gotta take a chance on yourself

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Cause when the power strikes you blind
They can see it in your eyes
And it doesn't take too much to read
Too much to read your mind

Way Of The World

You are born into this world
Looking down the barrel of a gun
And those who hold the gun
Want you to work fast and die young
And if you dont' work
If you don't obey
They'll make you live in fear till your dying day
Those who govern hold the gun
To your head
With religions, corporations proud of the blood
They have shed

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

And the corpoate snakes coming in to feed
On that pathetic fact known as human greed
Skin and bone being raked over those hot coals
This dump never seems to give time to human soul

And if all those things that we have learnt
No time for questions you'll just get burnt
(Listen) You'll just get burnt

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

And those words crush you flat
Like your skulls under a brick
And the fear's so damn strong
That it makes you sick
And you can see right through those eyes
That make you fear, that make you lie

And you're taught to hold high
Yet you wonder why
Dumb values forced upon you by the
Living lie

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name

Whether it's God or the bomb
It's just the same
It's only fear under another name


Ghost of the Year

I'm counting on you
To count my blessings
I'm counting on you
To count the fingers on my hand
That's the amount of time I've got
I'll always feel drowned and I'll always be around
I'll always feel drowned and I'll always be around

And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)

New message from the airwaves
One saved one alive
A new message hits my brain
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive I'm somebody today

There's a great deal of fear inside
That I'm right in my conclusions
A great deal of pain inside
And I'm supposed to be alright

And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)

Down on the street
To search for feel
The people on the street, they make me real
So, I'm counting on you
To count my blessings
I'm counting on you
To count the fingers on my hand
That's the amount of time I've got

And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)
And now they want to crown me (for the ghost of the year)


Everything

This is a message from innerspace
This is a message from me to you face to face
The continuity of all you gave
Time to undo the shakles of a slave
And

Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything

Here comes positivity cruisin on a wave
We've got every dream recorded
Loaded up and ready to save
Feed off that power that's in your dreams
Mass total energy from things unseen
And

Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything

Ignore the architect of our dreams
Spinning the wheel with thought unseen
Part of the whole ignorance removes the soul
And it sends it scurrying blindly
Off to dig it's hole
And

Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything

Here comes positivity cruisin on a wave
We've got every dream recorded
Loaded up and ready to save
Feed of that power that's in your dreams
Mass total energy from things unseen
And

Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything
Everything, everything, everything, everything, everything


Concrete

I'm sitting in a bar
Staring at the universe that's in my drink
The motion of my straw
Is stirring anti-clockwise in the glass

I recall the moments...well
And I raise my glass to you
You held me in your arms
And saved me from despair

And as I'm older and more stupid
The years have etched stupidity into my skull
I condemn my foolishness
And I raise my glass to you

Yeah, the world is packed with murderers and madmen
They promised us a slow, slow death
Those who torture with a smile
I don't like their idea of business at all

And in this drink I see my momentary freedom
But I know the smell of my own prison
Yes, I know it well
I know the smell of me (Fascination won't change my mind)

I hear those telephones ringing
Everybody wants out
Ring...all those sleepless nights
And those wailing phones won't set things right

Such a state of disorder
Go one way, two ways, four
Anyway, our feet are still cramped
Oh sure, it's a concrete idea
You can say what you want
Fascination, won't change my mind
You can say what you want
Fascination, won't change my mind

Won't change my mind


Zero-2-0

(Instrumental)


Soul Engine

We were talking
While driving at night
Talking about freedom
Freedom in golden cages
Illusions...some call them dreams

Someone said, "Do the words make a difference"
She said, "Never underestimate your soul"

We took to the highway in a car full of dreams

You bought your freedom
In golden cages
Some people call dreams
You bought your freedom in golden cages
Some people call dreams

If you strip everything away
What are you left with
You're left with nothing
If you took away your big black cat
Would there be anything at all
Your hats and furs and diamond rings
Don't mean a thing
And those chains you got around your neck
They're just pulling you down

Walk naked to me
Walk naked to me
Walk naked to me

You bought your freedom in golden cages
Some people call dreams
You bought your freedom in golden cages
Some people call dreams
You bought your freedom in golden cages
Some people call dreams
You bought your freedom in golden cages
Some people call dreams


Buckethead

Sometimes you feel like hell
And your whole world is hell as well
Sometimes you feel just like
All you can do is sleep

There's an eyeball on your shoulder
And Lord it's been there such a long time
And you can't escape this feeling
Though there's nothing there wrong

There's a monitor where the mind once was
An aircraft passes overhead
Resounds like rain in the bucket of my head
Bones just like gun's
Marching off to bore
Some sizable holes holes in this suit of skin

Sometimes you feel like hell
And your whole world is hell aswell
Somtimes you feel just like
All you can do is sleep

I know that sickness is here
Come on and buy your own disease
Cause were the product of the product
Can't turn but to rot

There's a monitor where the mind once was
An aircraft passes overhead
Resounds like rain in the bucket of my head
Bones just like guns
Marching off to bore
Some sizable holes in this suit of skin


Monday Night by Satellite

You stained my chair
I stained your dress
People think we're brats
But I think we're pretty smart

Monday night by satellite
I'm walking through your dreams
Life's so strange when we're together
But I feel like we're twins

Oh, the will
To carry on
The time is short
But I have the time

Monday night by satellite
I'm walking through your dreams
Life's so strange when we're together
But I feel like your twin

If I were to spend my whole life over
I'd spend it with you
Monday night by satellite
I love you

Oh yeah, Monday night
Monday night
Monday night
By satellite, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


Tight

Hold tight
Nothing missing
Look around
Pupil's glisten
Can you listen?
Or is it that
You've learnt too much
What's your limit

Teeth are clenched, chords in the neck are tense
Sometimes it seems to make no sense
And don't you cry

You know you've heard a pack of lies

So hold tight
And don't you cry

Hold tight
Yeah I can see you
You got it all under your skin
Turn around where you stand
Everybody take aim at adversity

Teeth are clenched, chords in the neck are tense
Sometimes it seems to make no sense
And don't you cry

You know you've heard a pack of lies

So hold tight
And don't you cry

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hold tight
I got your message
I got it all
And there's no limit
The travel between our dreams
Has not come to an end
So let's keep up
Our holy alliance

Teeth are clenched, chords in the neck are tense
Sometimes it seems to make no sense
And don't you cry

You know you've heard a pack of lies

So hold tight
And don't you cry

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


Ot-Ven-Rot

This bruised brain can only take so much heat
This mind has been used as a skittle in a dust bowl
A wrecking of the soul turned over and spewed out
Carried away ever junk left behind by all

Till the cattle finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

Till the cattle has finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

This carriage of skin and bone is my home
I'm in need of new tissue but I aint' gonna get it
I used the leftovers the junk left behind by all
That junk chucked away to be replaced
By some new

So bright and shiny golden and silver
That it shatters the sun
So as God can see it
And it will not spit on their land

The land was bought by the skin of their teeth

Or the spine and spirit of those crushed below them
In the world below where the junk ain't so bright
And those who got it - built for those who got better

Anything they want with their bones and skin
Till the cattle finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

Anything they want with their bones and skin
Till the cattle finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

Anything they want with their bones and skin
Till the cattle finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

Anything they want with their bones and skin
Till the cattle finally come home
And all the workers bodies pile up
Like so many used cars

Let Me Show You

(
Hutchence/Gill)

This shattered town gets me down
My ticket's booked then you were found
I tore them up like you tore my heart
I'm black and blue from love and art

(Give it up, Gimme)
Who could take it?
(Give it up, Gimme)
I guess I'll shake it, but
No-one touches all you are
Strip to show me all you are

Let me show you how you make me feel
(I've got my finger on the trigger)

Well through the twilight how I've tried
To get my thoughts deep in your mind
In my sleep I've tasted you
Intoxicated by your every move

(Give it up, Gimme)
Who could take it?
(Give it up, Gimme)
I guess I'll shake it, but
No-one touches all you are
Strip to show me all you are

Let me show you how you make me feel
(I've got my finger on the trigger)


Possibilities
Hutchence/Saber

It's so strange
How my life's changed
I know nothing
About the people that I touched

Heard a story
It sounded easy
If you don't care
Then you're lying through your teeth

I was shook up
Intoxicated
Drank the juices
Of the possibilities

I'm so alive

If you told me
Nothing's perfect
Hearts are broken
Nothing's free

I could show you
Why it's worth it
That's the way that it's meant to be

It's too strange
How your life's changed
You know nothing
About the people that you've touched

Someone told me
Life is easy
Hearts were bleeding and breaking
They were lying through their teeth

If you told me
Nothing's perfect
Hearts are broken
Nothing's free

I will show you
Why it's worth it
And that's the way that it's meant to be

If you told me
Nothing's perfect
Hearts are broken
Nothing's free

I could show you
Why it's worth it
That's the way that it's meant to be

Heard a story
It sounded easy
Got a new skin and
I'm lying through my teeth
I was shook up
Intoxicated
I drank the juices of the possibilities

Of the possibilities


Get on The Inside
Hutchence/Gill

I'm never gonna make you suffer
If you want my better side
I'm gonna give you all my sugar
When it comes to taking the ride

I will never let your words be washed away
There are oceans to be named by you
Inside we lay in the shadows
Outside they push the skin parade

All the streets have turned from red to blue
It's probably gonna stay that way
Don't let me go
And stop you
If you're looking for a better view

Gonna take a ride
From here to heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside
Gonna take a ride
To eleventh heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside

Are we gonna kill the things
that mean the most
As a junkie and a jailer too
We're gonna recognise the faces
If we're searching for the life we knew

All the streets have turned from red to blue
It's probably gonna stay that way
Don't let me go
And stop you
If you're looking for a better view

Gonna take a ride
From here to heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside
Gonna take a ride
To eleventh heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside
All you people talking so lonely
Making plans that your daddy wanted
Setting it up for the biggest falling
How you gonna learn, learn to fake it?
Having trouble with the dirty make-up
Never gonna learn what
you're running from
Acting like the world just owes you
Looking for love in all the wrong places

Gonna take a ride
From here to heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside
Gonna take a ride
To eleventh heaven
Gonna take a ride
Get on the inside


Fear
Hutchence/Gill

Tell me something
I gotta know
All your troubles
I wanna own
I'm not preaching 'cause I'm full of sin
Nothing's secret that I have not done

Alone with your situation
Fear on the face you're saving

Kiss the warm knives as they dig for your soul
There in the corner of my dirty home
Take the silver: I've paid that price
Here's the scandal
They don't let the truth get in the way

Alone with your situation
Fear on the face you're saving

Don't you worry don't you run away
There are some things that we know will never change
Don't you worry don't you look away
There are some things that we know we'll have to change
Burning, teasing, searching, fever, twisting,
turning
I'm the white truth dealer

Alone with your situation
Fear on the face you're saving


All I'm saying
Hutchence/Simenon

You put your heart
With trust
Into my hands
I held so tight
Kept you protected from things

Did you ever think about it
Did you ever cry about it
Would you ever, ever doubt it

All I'm saying
Is come around
Tell me 'bout
The life you found

I put my heart
With trust
Into your hands
One day, changes come
Some pain and rain comes falling down

Did you ever think about it
Don't say it
Did you ever lie about it
Don't say it
Could you ever live without it

All I'm saying
Is come around
Tell me 'bout
The life you found
Tell me 'bout the life you found

We search endlessly
For answers to war and pain
We love the nights
Some days we laugh, feel like it's alright

Did you ever think about it
Don't say it
Did you ever cry about it
Don't say it
Could you ever live without it

All I'm saying
Is come around
Tell me 'bout
The one you found
All I'm saying
Is come around
Tell me bout
The one you found


A Straight Line
Hutchence/Gill

Yeah we're just watching history
Now that the dogs are barking
Take a picture for your children
Make it real in FujiColor
Life in the junkyard's hard
Even when the dogs are sleeping
But if you win you lose the next spin
Madame, monsieurs, rien ne va plus

I watch the black and white bleeding
Don't you know the pain I'm in
I've been working all week
I've been thinking on my feet
And I've come to the end of my losing streak

Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line

Wave goodbye to your innocence
Sell it to the highest bidder
In a tight spot call for assistance
Is that American Express?
Get me out of here

I watch the black and white bleeding
Don't you know the pain I'm in
I've been working all week
I've been thinking on my feet
And I've come to the end of my losing streak

Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line
Take a straight line

I'm up the top, looking down
Everybody looks just like ants
It would be so easy


Baby It's Alright
Hutchence/Saber

It wouldn't be right to take it
It wouldn't be right lying down
I'm sick of the dogs outside my window
That's right
Take a look
You've been with a hook stuck into me

So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright

Look at the mess I'm makin'
Look at that mess across your face
As bitterness started showin'
Five years
No-one hears
Just another night too scared to bleed

So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright

Give you some time to feel it
I tangled you up in flesh and blood
Just to scared of where I took you
Spotlight blue to red crashin' in your head

So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright
So baby it's alright, it's alright
So baby it's alright, it's alright
So baby it's alright, it's alright
So baby it's alright, it's alright

It's alright
It's alright
To fall into your arms


Don't Save Me From Myself
Hutchence/Gill

I'm not keeping time
Get me outta here
Folding up my crimes
Ready for what's said to me

All that glitters shine
Love that new attraction
Animal inside
Leads me to the conclusion

Don't save me from myself
Don't save me from myself

I listen to the wind
And mystery comes alive
Don't tie me up again
Separate love from possession

Does all that glitters shine
Love that new attraction
Animal inside
Leads me to the conclusion

Don't save me from myself
Don't save me from myself


She Flirts For England
Hutchence/Gill

Oh give her the summer
Let her live another
She warms to the kiss of goodbye
Her momma took a preacher
Her daddy pays for lovers
Her eyes like a winter sky

Hear the echoes
Calling for the secrets we hide

She's flirting for England
She's flirting for England
She's flirting for England
She's flirting for England

She comes to the party
On a kiss don't tell pony
And lets me have the first of her sighs
Tricks came so easy
But you know she keeps your secrets
The tracks of the tears she will hide

Oh voices
Calling for the secrets we hide

She's flirting for England
She's searching for England
She's flirting, flirting, flirting
She's a complicated cookie
She's flirting, flirting, flirting
She's a complicated cookie


Flesh and Blood
Hutchence/Gill

Strip away the bones and skin
Looking for what lies within
See the stars so cold above
Makes no sense of your flesh and blood

You walked the longest walk
Talked the toughest talk
You were outside, something inside
Took away the words, want to hear again
You were outside, something inside

All of the days we thought would come
All of the words we thought had gone
All of the pain and pleasure gone
Without you

Strip away the bones and skin
Show me what lies within
Would you be the one that I love
Makes no sense of your flesh and blood

You walked the longest walk
Talked the toughest talk
You were outside, something inside
Took away the words, want to live again
You were outside, something inside

All of the days we thought would come
All of the words we thought had gone
All of the pain and pleasure gone
Without you

We'd be making love
Make it right

All of these we thought would come
All of the words we thought had gone
All of the pain and pleasure gone
Without you


Put The Pieces Back Together
Hutchence/Gill

Saw a million pieces
Of the shape I'm in
Hanging from a chandelier
Have a taste of everything
Nothing gonna get me crying out for more
Seen nothing to seduce me
Seen it all before

He's another leader
Pretty head on the block
Got another axe to grind
If the dust ain't hard
Can he taste the money dripping off the tongue
All is fair in love and war
With a cold heart and a smoking gun

Sooth me
Sue me
Sooth me
Sue me

Put the pieces back together
Every moment back together

In your quiet moments
Looking back in tears
Can I count the nights you've lived
That you'd live again
Looking for the real thing to even up the score
Finding out you're lonely
With an open door

Sooth me
Sue me

I guess I lied too

I saw a million pieces
Of the shape I'm in
Hanging from a chandelier
Put the pieces back together

Pussy cat, pussy cat
Where have you been?
I've been down to London
To see the queen


Breathe
Hutchence/Saber

She got the future wrapped up inside her
Every day without her feels like a crime
He wants to show her over and over
The way two people turn into one
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing,
breathing

Baby come closer whisper your secrets
I'll tell you yours if you tell me mine
Well here comes the reason deep in your nature
We're creatures always trying to prove love

Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing,
breathing
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing

She got the future wrapped up inside her
Every day without her feels like a crime
He wants to show her over and over
The way two people turn into one

Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing,
breathing
Just keep breathing, breathing, breathing

Breathe out, breathe out, breathe out


Slide Away
Hutchence/Gill

Are you gonna wake again?
Are you gonna take it down?
Oh babe, I don't wanna deal it
Oh, make it alright
Gimme some, my love
Away, away, away

I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I will see that love again, and find a life again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again

I wanted to let it go
Just couldn't let it go
I wanted to let it go
Just couldn't let you go

I would catch you
(Just couldn't let you go)
I'd catch you as you fall
(Just couldn't let it go)
I would catch you
(Just couldn't let you go)
I'd catch you if I heard your call

But you tore a hole in space
Like a dark star, falls from grace
You burn across the sky
And I would find you wings to fly
And I would catch you
I would catch your fall

I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I will see that love again, and find a life again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again
