SMASHED & BLIND

I've been derelict, I've been down,
Dragged my bottom lip all over town,
She left me, whore,
One of these days I won't love her anymore,
She's got a new man now,
And good luck to him,
Cos there's a world of hurt,
That he will be swimming in.

I choose to drink alone,
And I ain't crying in my beer,
Every glass is full of hate,
And who says hate is full of fear?.


Love love love,
Smashed and blind,
Love love love love love,
Love love love,
Time after time,
In this sick world it ain't easy to believe in,
Or to find.

Love means nothing anyway,
You don't need love to live,
She ripped your guts out,
Then she said she [unintelligble].

I choose to drink alone,
And I ain't crying in my beer,
Every glass is full of hate,
And who says hate is full of fear?.

Love love love,
Smashed and blind,
Love love love love love,
Love love love,
Time after time,
In this sick world it ain't easy to believe in,
Or to find but it's not on my mind.

Your girl wants to won you, because you met her mother,
Her mother's an ugly psycho bitch and your girl says,
I don't want to end up like that,
But she's well on her way,
Like a cruel reflection in a mirror that she can't escape,
It surrounds her cos it's in her,
The image is there all the time,
And turns her into it,
She becomes the reflection and she's lost when you turn out the light,
How can you break the mirror?,
Smash it into a million pieces,
Grind it into dust, there has to be a way,
There's got to be a way,
To break the circle, stop the play,
And send the actors home,
To write lines of their own.

I've been derelict, I've been down,
Dragged my bottom lip all over town,
She left me, whore,
One of these days I won't love her anymore.

I choose to drink alone,
And I ain't crying in my beer,
Every glass is full of hate,
And who says hate is full of fear?.

Love love love,
Smashed and blind,
Love love love love love,
Love love love,
Time after time,
In this sick world it ain't easy to believe in,
Or to find.

 

YOU LOAD MY DOWN

I'm going to the store,
To get myself some beer,
And if they canned up sanity,
Would they sell it here?,
I'd buy myself a truckload,
And drink away the night,
Maybe then my baby,
You and me would be all right,
Cos you load me down,
You load me down,
You load me down with my regrets,
I'm like a ship about to sink,
I'm just drinking to forget,
And I don't forget to drink,
I don't forget to drink it down,
You load me down.

Thinking how it used to be,
To be alone with you,
Telling any lies we could,
To steal an hour or two,
It ain't like that now, babe,
We're together and you're mine,
With a silent rhetoric,
We wish away our time.


You load me down,
You load me down,
You load me down with my regrets,
I'm like a ship about to sink,
I'm just drinking to forget,
And I don't forget to drink,
I don't forget to drink it down,
You load me down

 
 

EZY

Love is love and it lives out loud,
Shakes the world and standing proud,
Gives the power and gives the grace,
To make this world a better place,
You got hope when you got someone,
To share your tears when your hard day's done,
To hold you like there's a nuclear blast,
To peel away each indifferent mask.

Easy baby, easy,
Easy baby, cos you got me.

Work is hell all I want to do,
Is lose myself in loving you,
Forget how much I don't get paid,
Forget everything except my babe.


And when the bailiffs knock the door,
Cos we can't pay our bills no more,
They can take the cooker and the tired TV,
So long as I've still got you loving me.

Take it easy, baby,
Cos you got me,
While we got each other,
We've got luxury.


Easy baby, easy,
Easy baby, cos you got me.

 
 

BLACK LAGOON

I pour my brain into a can
And beer swamps my mind
Turning me from a man
Into something less defined
An open wound
With raw emotions bleeding forth
The night becomes a swamp
As the brew takes its course


I'm falling down into
A black lagoon
Pour me a pint of my best friend
And set them up again.

A melancholy anger weeps
In shadows of lost hope
The mutant climbs inside my eyes
And sanity is soaked.
The taste is sweet and satisfies
A midnight afternoon
I am sinking slowly
In the potion's black lagoon


I'm falling down into
A black lagoon
Pour me a pint of my best friend
And set them up again.


Pour me a glass of cold dark beer
And don't ask me to smile at you, my dear
There's no answer in the bottle
However hard I look
There's no wisdom in that cocktail
However hard it's shook

 
 

BROKEN DOLL

Do you like the job you do,
Or is it like you're in a zoo,
Where every cage has got a broken doll?,
All cracked and smashed in different ways,
Even so they look the same,
All they do is stop you feeling tall,
They want to get there,
But they don't want to pay for the ride,
I know everything has got a price.


Lady luck is gonna shine on us some day,
Lady luck is gonna shine,
Lady luck is gonna shine on us some day,
Lady luck is gonna shine.

Do you spend your working day,
Wishing you could get away?,
Then good luck to all of our escapes,
Cos things we fight the hardest for,
We find we never want at all,
It binds us to them all the more.

They want to get there,
But they don't want to pay for the ride,
I know everything has got a price.


Lady luck is gonna shine on us some day,
Lady luck is gonna shine,
Lady luck is gonna shine on us some day,
Lady luck is gonna shine.


When I've got the night shift,
Then I've got sleepless days,
When I've got the day shift,
Then all my nights are late,
The foreman thinks my singing is a joke,
But I've got more than him,
What I've got is hope that maybe...

 
 

TWICE AS MEAN

There's a Bible by my hotel bed,
Inside it somewhere,
Is a story, a story that said,
Somebody cares,
But we've got to be twice as mean,
Just to get around,
They're kicking you and me,
While we're on the ground.


Down fall the good guys, one by one,
They never say what they mean,
Each day is harder when you trust no one,
I'm a prisoner of dreams.


But we've got to be twice as mean,
Just to get around,
They're kicking you and me,
While we're on the ground.

I know that only angels have wings.


A straight answer is like a kiss on the lips,
But there are none it seems,
No kisses, just angles and tricks,
It's a tragedy.

That we've got to be twice as mean,
Just to get around,
They're kicking you and me,
While we're on the ground.

I know that only angels have wings

 
 

CATHODE RAY CLINIC

I sit in front of this TV,
And I can feel it swallow me,
Dull my brain and steal my soul,
Seduce me til my heart is cold,
You can watch a student die,
Or a plane fall from the sky,
In a thousand dollar dress,
Are glamour girls with plastic breasts,
See our cripples, blind and deaf,
With your money make them blessed,
Let us show them that you care,
You only see them once a year.


God is here, He talks to me,
And through the man whose tears preach,
Show me something I can buy,
So God will keep me high and dry.


Is it real, I don't know,
Turn it off, where do they go?,
Is it real, can you tell,
Apparitions hot from hell.


Black Rock me girls on video,
Dance sex with me on tipi toe,
Beauty without tenderness,
And they ridicule in a tiny dress,
Only seven miles away,
Lie victims of that black brigade,
Three boys are shot and one is dead,
As I stretch out on my bed.

God is here, He talks to me,
And through the man whose tears preach,
Show me something I can buy,
So God will keep me high and dry.

Is it real, I don't know,
Turn it off, where do they go?,
Is it real, can you tell,
Apparitions hot from hell.

They're dying, dying in my room,
They're laughing and they're dancing too,
Crying, lost everything they own,
And smiling on big Bob's game show,
I'll go for the car, Bob, I'll go for the car,
I want the car, Bob, I want the car.

Behind the glass, inside the light,
What is on the box tonight?.

Is it real, I don't know,
Turn it off, where do they go?,
Is it real, can you tell,
Apparitions hot from hell.

I'm attending every day,
The clinic of the cathode ray.

 
 

THE LOVELESS

Too many righteous people,
Are preaching on the streets,
Saying "You can't do that",
We don't need their grief,
Because look a little different,
Not like they want us to,
We ride a road to ruin,
A hell-bent metal crew,
We don't want your rules,
Your words are cheap,
We'll never bow down at your feet.


We are the loveless,
And we walk alone,
We are the loveless,
We stand on our own,
We are the loveless,
We'll never change,
We are the loveless,
And we will remain.


Loaded guns are aimed,
At the irreverent,
And in the hands of justice,
All the truth is bent,
They say we're vicious and we're dirty,
While they are so pristine?,
We're dancing with a flick knife,
Into the final scene.

And we don't want their law,
We don't want their police,
They kick kids to fuck in the streets.


We are the loveless,
And we walk alone,
We are the loveless,
We stand on our own,
We are the loveless,
We'll never change,
We are the loveless,
And we will remain.


You are just what you are,
So never compromise,
They'll make you play the whore,
To every ponce in life.
We are the loveless,
And we walk alone,
We are the loveless,
We stand on our own,
We are the loveless,
We'll never change,
We are the loveless,
And we will remain.

 
 

AFTER MIDNIGHT

After midnight, lay together,
Arms round him, moon above,
She was sad, he was lonely,
That's where the fire starts in love,
Was it the evening, was it the moment,
A time when two bodies glow,
He made a promise then he broke it,
Now she's got nine months to go.

All the rolling's over now.


Outside the bus stop - tried to call him,
her tears falling on the floor,
She was sad, he was loaded,
She didn't matter anymore.


All the rolling's over now.

 
 
 

TEMPLE OF ROCK

Knock the door and then descend,
Down the stairs and down again,
Into the Temple of Rock,
Tattooed backs and beer thighs,
Shadows laugh and make up lies,
In the Temple of Rock.

Tell me anything, I'll do it, she said,
As I passed in the hall,
Don't I know that good things,
Nearly always come packaged small.


I want the hard core.


Don't I know that I look cool,
Cos I'm drinking rocket fuel,
In the Temple of Rock.

Smashed and blind but I feel fine,
Watered at that sacred shrine,
It's the Temple of Rock.

Tell me anything, I'll do it, she said,
As I passed in the hall,
Don't I know that good things,
Nearly always come packaged small.

I want the hard core.

I want a hard core bitch to worship,
I want the good times with the bad girls,
I don't mind if I beg,
Cos I want to lick their legs.

 
 

MOONLIGHT

Didn't it seem to good,
Just as everything was as it should be,
What was time, somewhere, some place we had to be,
Mom says you can't go back, you can't turn back the clock,
Isn't it good to be in love,
This room and just the two of us,
One night, the full moon woke us up,
That moon and just the two of us,
We took the moment by the horns,
And the hours seemed to get lost.

Confused by it all,
I sit and wonder,
Bemused and enthralled,
Why are we apart?.

Isn't it good to be in love,
This room and just the two of us,
One night, the full moon woke us up,
That moon and just the two of us,
We took the moment by the horns,
And the hours seemed to get lost.

Confused by it all,
I sit and wonder,
Bemused and enthralled,
Why are we apart?.

 
 

DEAD AT LAST

He ironed his shirt and pressed his pants,
And with a dull empty sadness hanging over his heart,
He shined his shoes.

'It's better than working for a living', the waitress said,
But all the time inside, Johnny's heart was breaking open wide.

Playing in that half empty Twilight Room on a Saturday,
Johnny tried to dream his life away,
Hoping that he would wake up in the beam of a super trooper,
Wishing that he was much cooler.

All he heard his head say was,
"Life ain't like that",
In the sorrow of his dressing room he sat,
So he drains the bottle,
Loads the gun,
Writes the note,
No-one will come,
Pulls the trigger,
Breaks the glass,
The man in the mirror,
is dead at last.

The note said "Stick your club right up your ass,
This gig stinks, you're second class,
I'm going to save my pride, keep my head,
If people ask, that singer's dead.",
So when every hour seems like a day,
And nothing seems to go your way.

Don't let those bastards drag you down,
You've got to hold on to what you've got,
Don't swan dive off a bottle top,
All you got to do is blow that town.
