Holy Creatures

I can hear apocalypse coming - all minds turn black - and shadows red - Gods get mugged - and virgins plucked - gotta reap what the others sow

I can hear the undead moaning - settin’ fire to sleep - and the air, it bleeds - streets are in the gutter - and waters all flooded - but hey, so it goes

all God’s holy creatures - let it all hang out - chasing treats - all you nonbelievers - boy meets gal - and now we gotta face the freaks

gotta face the freaks…

I can hear apocalypse moaning

Strange Ways

I'll be the shame - you will get to feel - I can't hold it back - I'll be a slave - to all your fears - and heart attacks

don’t know exactly - don’t know exactly - what the Bible says - but I guess it's - something about love - and I've got love to give

we all have throats - we all have tongues - so we can kiss the ones we love - no, you're not the only one

we don't have time - to wait for Jesus to come - and tell us 'hey, we got something wrong' - I think it's cool - that rapists, killers and liars - can get married all the time - but why can't I? - why can't I hold his hand and say "I do, babe" - we all fuck in - we all fuck in strange ways

we all have throats…

be the one to say that it's time to change - be the one to pray that we all can change…

we all have throats…

Heathens

God is a frame - within a larger frame - and it doesn't belong - to you or me - but when we get older - I will hold you - in the same way - (and I'll)

check on you, check on you - yeah I'll - check on you, check on you - I will - then you crawl back into my arms - you crawl back into my arms

no matter how - you try not - to act like heathens - it won't work out, but we all got our reasons - I'd lock up my body - and mind for you - I'll go to church - and get rid of my blues - (but then…)

check on me, check on me - would you? - please, check on me, check on me - could you? - then I crawl back into your arms - I crawl back into your arms

God spelled backwards - is a true friend of man - but the almighty lord - is only a friend of the past

we believe in everything - yeah we believe in everything - (so please…)

check on me…

and when we get older - I will hold you - in the same way

We Don’t Have Sound

we just wanna do our best - we don’t wanna fall behind - but we gotta take care now - and slow down

we don’t have sound - we don’t have sound - for everyone - for everyone

there’s so many people - but we just can’t see them - how do we tell them - they’re dying?

we don’t have air - we don’t have air - for everyone - for everyone

the wind will carry us now - if we lose weight somehow - we’ll be skin and bones and twirl - twirl around

we don’t have sound… we don’t have air…

the cradle won't stop - no it won’t stop - rocking - till we’re all back - we’re all back - in the coffin

we don't have much to say - this planet is a brain - and it's dreaming - of outer space

Baby Skull Ring

your face is not my face - your mistakes are not my mistakes - your smile is not my smile - and your child is not my child

but let’s all just get along - yeah let’s all just get along - all we need is love - so let’s all just get along

your path is not my path - your wrath is not my wrath - and your church is not my church - no your curse is not my curse

but let’s all just get along - yeah let’s all just get along - oh all we need is love…

AND MY CRIES - AND MY NEEDS - AND MY HATE - EMBRACE - EMBRACE

In The Name of The Father

I watched you grow - and us grow apart - and today was - was only - a dream

I touched your heart - I left your brain - will we ever - ever see - each other again?

don’t wait up for me all night - cause I’ll slip into - your dreams - I’ll be your guide into the dark - no you won’t get far - no you won’t ever leave -

I held your hand - too tight, oh my - listen up - a part of you - will die tonight

don’t wait up for me all night…

you sick little boy - stop hurting me - and oh I want your soul - if I can’t have your body - that river turned - itself inside out - and the fish we knew so well - drank all your footsteps

In the name of the Father…

go on - going strong - love - hasn’t lost - and oh the drugs will - will sing - for you

Shame

try to wag my tail - and I try to stay cool - but nothing seems to - satisfy you - when you’re mad - when you’re mad

oh my darling - you’re so full of - second opinions - and second love - when you’re mad - when you’re mad

we get by - we change - and get by - then change - and we die - what a shame

you look like a stranger - when we’ve gone to bed - I don’t know if it’s you - or just in my head - when I’m mad - when I’m mad

we get by - we change…

we gotta treat each other right - let’s do our best - and put our souls - to rest - when we’re dead - when we’re dead -

we get by - we change…

Vote For Me

I can’t find anything I despise - everyday I help a mother deliver a child - but every other day I feel ashamed - cause you blame blame me for all - tragic deeds

you don’t - have it in you - you got - everything wrong

I live in your dreams - in a palace of tranquility - I’m sleep within your sleep - I’m the one and only - guardian for humanity - the cities are neurotic - and so are you - but that’s why I’m here - we can’t lose

you don’t - have it in you…

vote for me - vote for me…

here’s to the selfish killer - and the patriotic whore - they voted for me - now listen - or hear me roar

you don’t - have it in you…

vote for me…

We Will Survive

you can have my sea - you can stand on my feet - you see it all as a blur - maybe you’re looking at the cure

and everytime you know - you’ve got it all right - it’s always easier to pick a fight - we learned to talk - so we could speak our minds - and don’t you worry - I’m on your side

we will survive - we will survive

I will go back in line - if you're short on time - but someone rules the earth - women and children first

so push your thoughts as far as they can go - but I’ll kick your ass - if you’re gonna throw stones - mix your drinks as much as you like - I will hold your hair - and get you through the night

we will survive - we will survive

you can have a say - and do it your own - way - try n' make friends - with your past - or just try not - to look back

we will survive - we will survive

I will hold your hair - and get you through the night

Rockets

don’t you worry - I’ll keep you under my arms - don’t you worry - I’ll choke you with my charms - don’t you worry - I’ll right you with my wrongs - don’t you worry - I’ll kill you before you’re born

I’ll make you go sorry - if you go and worry too much

don’t you worry - it’s time to have some fun - don’t you worry - I’ll keep writing you songs - don’t you worry - I’ve been around all along - don’t you worry - we’ve already won

I’ll make you go sorry...

lost our minds - but it’s alright - lost our pretty minds - still on your side

I’ll make you go sorry - if you go and worry if you go and worry if you go and worry if you go and worry too much

Killers

now we're all out of love
