Pretty Maids - Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing lyrics


01. Snakes In Eden

You are the lust behind the lie
You are the hate that never dies
Suffering and misery
You are the cycle of my pain
The never ever ending strain
And bring out all the worst in me

And black is your religion
As the darkest night
A cat among the pigeons
Waiting for the strike

You are the poison in the bite
The raging jealousy inside
My wrath and my hostility
You are the virus in my veins
The growing cancer in my brain
You are infidelity

I have watched the cities rot
I have seen the nations fall
And I have denied my God
While you misled us all

Search in myself
Got to face my demons
Rising from Hell
There are snakes in Eden

You are blasphemy and decadence
The stealer of my innocence
The worm that wriggles around my soul
You have haunted me right since my birth
Created all scum of the Earth
And caused this world eternal cold

You are infernal
You are the mentor of my sins
You are the incubus
The evil from within


02. Destination Paradise

Take a little trip with me
Let your spirits wander free
I'll free you from reality
I can take you there
Let me be your Peter Pan
Take you of to Never land
Make you feel like Superman
Make you feel aware

Ignite you
Excite you
The sails are set for

Destination Paradise, kiss the sky
Flying high tonight
On the wings of a dream
Sail away, leave today
In a sea of light
And flow with the stream
Once we've made friends
Don't pretend that we won't meet again
I will be tied to your tracks

I can change your attitude
Sweeten up the bitter fruit
Let me put a spell on you
For a little while
You'll be safe in my control
I got you in a stranglehold
I'll free your mind and steal your soul
I can make you smile

Destination Paradise, kiss the sky
Flying high tonight
On the wings of a dream
Sail away, leave today
In a sea of light
And flow with the stream
If you want more
I'll be there at the end of the straw
I'm your drug, I'm a rock
Cut me up take me in - Take me

Now they say you're sugar free
Won't you drop a line for me
And how is your morality
Now that you've come clean
Do you still have confidence
Can you face the consequence
Don't you see it never ends
It's still the same old scene

I beg you, won't let you go


03. Hell On High Heels

I met this girl
She stole my heart
She rocked my world
Right from the start
One single look
An instant attraction
And i was hooked for more

But I know
You're fooling around girl
And i know she's pulling tricks on me
But she glows, there's something about her
And i'm lost in her mystery

But she's hell on high heels
Once you're stuck inside her web
She leaves you in a trail of passion
She's a drug you just can't quit
And your mind is in a haze

One little touch
One little kiss
A little lust
I can't resist
You know I'm trapped
And once I'm invited
No turning back oh no

Maybe she's just a one-night sensation
Maybe I'm just a toy for amusement
But it seems like an infatuation
She's a match to my fuse


She'll eat my heart out
My mean lean queen
Love machine
Heartbreaking soul shaking girl

Uh, she plays a dirty game
I might be lucky and roll a six on the dice
I need her love tonight
Need her love


04. When The Angels Cry

I pray the Lord my soul for him to keep
For all the world to see
To save me from the Devil and his creep
To lay his hands on me

I feel the ground beneath me shake
I can't rewind
I'm gonna fall

Father forgive me
For we don't know what we do
Love resurrect me
To the world that i once knew

Depraved diseased
A far out scenery
We know it all too well
The path we choose
To find the gates of Heaven
Is just the road to Hell

Raping the land
And apocalyptic plans
It's the nature of man

See what we created
Stare into the face of time
Living in a world devastated
When the angels cry

Cry for salvation
When the final day has come
We're the last generation
In the shades of Babylon

Denial betrayal
No meaning to our failure
No answer to our pleas
A burned out culture
Chaos and revolt
It's mankind on its knees

Our future is vanishing
Like blood in the rain
Like a paper in Flames

See what we created
Stare into the face of time
Living in a world devastated
When the angels cry
Think of all the beauty we wasted
Is this the end of it all

And I saw another sign in Heaven
Great and marvelous
Seven angels having seven plagues
Which are the last
For in them is finished the wrath of God


05. Back Off

Wear me out
Stone me in the street
You can tear me down
But you cannot erase my memory

Preach to me
I don't take advice
I don't compromise
I gotta look the devil in the eyes

I know that you'll never see things the way I do
But only fools follow rules

Back off
Do you hear what I say
Back off
Get out of my way

Hang me up
Say I don't belong
Pull the plug
Spit on me, but I'll still come on strong

Stab my back
But don't step on my pride
Hit me from behind
In the end the vengeance is mine

And nobody really wants you when you don't fit in
For some the streets will never bend


And if you cross my path
I'll take you off the map and
Terrorize you
Neutralize you
Pulverize you
Hurt you bad

I'll fight with all I got though
I'm right against the odds so
Here I am
All defiant
Out of time
Kicked out of the world

You can't systematize me
I ride against the flow
Your norms don't satisfy me
I want you to know


06. Only In America

In the land of make believe
In America
Go chase your fortune
Suicide on prime TV
Mass hysteria
The U.S. wants you

Malcolm X, politics
Tricky Dick and dirty tricks
Sugar Ray, CIA, lost in Hollywood
Letterman, Disneyland, Luther King
And Ku Klux Clan
Watergate out in space
Armstrong on the Moon

Ride on to life
It's what you make it
In Gods country
Eye for an eye
This is only in America

From the piles of dollar bills
To the poor ones in the ghetto nation
And the riches on the hill
Take advantage of illegal aliens

Iron Mike, take a bite
Stern is on the air tonight
Al Capone, rock 'n' roll, Elvis is alive
Kennedy for president
Shot in Dallas 1 PM
Liberty, LSD
Lucy in the skies


Sue you out of every course
Hypocrites and foreign wars
Brave new world
Brave new world


07. With These Eyes

Life is running slowly through our hands
Fade away like footsteps in the sand
Passing by us
And all our vision went astray
We're living with the scars of yesterday
To remind us

We look the other way
We're blind to what surrounds us
And no one seems to care
We dream of better days
'Cause everyone's got their own cross to bear
Ain't it so

With these eyes I have seen
Wasted lives and broken dreams
With this heart I have felt
How we seem to please ourselves
We need new dreams tonight
Like the stars need the sky
We need love and sympathy
I need you and you need me

Look upon the homeless in the street
See the pain of those in need
All those empty face
Think about the selfish way we live
How we take and never give
Somehow some things never change

The man behind the fence
He's got nothing left to live for
The wheels are standing still
And the beggar on the bench
Is lost for hope and he knows
It's the loneliness that kills


Some day take me and show me the way
To the end of the world where Paradise begins
With these eyes
With this heart
I have seen many lives torn apart


08. Anything Worth Doing Is Worth Overdoing

Life in the fast lane
Living against the law
Riding the speedtrain
Life is worth dying for

When I take off from here
The only way is up
My principles are clear
Too much is not enough

'Cause anything worth doing
And all that is worthwhile
Is worth overdoing
And this is my style
Dancing on the edge
I feel alive

Chasing the red lights
Drawn by the danger signs
Spaced out on the wild side
Crossing the dividing line

And when the night rolls on
I need some fuel to run
I'll be the last man standing
When all the rest has gone


Life in extreme
It's my playground, my scene
I'll enjoy every moment in time
Taking the scars
As I burn out my star
'Cause I wont live by others designs

I'm a firecracker
Ready to explode
And I'm blazing
Right till the end of the road


09. Scent Of My Prey

Walking in a trance tonight
Round the city streets
Looking for some pure delight
To fulfill my needs

My sanity is split in two
I'm burning with desire
Girl, I got my eyes on you
You're fuel to my fire

Creeping in on you
You'll never see me coming
Nothing you can do, oh no
No one's got a clue
There ain't no point in running
Now, can you feel me honey
I can smell you

The scent of my prey

Raised to be a monster
A pervert lunatic
In a psychotic hunger
I twist my strangle grip

Look into my eyes
And tell me what you see
Are you terrified baby
I'll be satisfied
Now you're in my possession
I'll realize my mission
I can smell you

The scent of my prey

Now my head is filled with emptiness
And I don't really recognize myself
Is it true what the paper says
Could it have been me
Little girl, don't you sense the danger
Little girl, never trust a stranger
Don't take the candy from his hand
And don't you play his game
He'll steal your life away

Baby step inside
I'll take you for a ride
No one hears you cry
No mercy
My kind of pleasure, is the key to your pain


10. Face Me

You slag my name
Insult my crowd
You ruin my day
You count me out
You criticize
Antagonize me
You question me
And my integrity

Now tell me, who are you to judge
If I am out of time, and out of touch
Now anytime, you pick the place
And I'll be there

Come out and face me
You piece of trash
You son of a bitch
Let's take a bout
Come out and face me
I'll kick your ass
And split your lips
I'll punch you out; I'll knock you down

You doubt my skills
Well, let me tell you
I despise your stilted
Intellect, oh yeah
And then again
I'd rather go to hell
Than ride the trend
And prostitute myself

I know the nature of your kind
Is it the envy deep inside
Or just the fact that I survived
If it is so:


Trendrider, can you show the way
I'd try to be hip for one day
And gone tomorrow
You build me up and tear me down
You change the things I say around
You're telling lies, you scumbag

Now tell me what
Gives you the right
I hate your guts
You goddamned parasite
And no one gives a fuck
Of what you think, about who you are
Your opinion sucks, tabloid super star
Every word you wrote just to hurt me
I'll shove 'em down your throat, you little piece of shit


11. Loveshine

My baby she's a sexual intellectual
Something special, and she's mine
Invaluable, unusual, amusing
And she's crucial to my life

She picked me up
Just like an angel out of nowhere
One little miracle
An answer to my prayers

Love shine on me
Lift me up, take my heart in your hands
Love shine on me
Never stop 'cause you're the only one
My rising sun of love
Shine on me

I find her irresistible so magical
So mystical, but she's physical
She is
She leaves me in a state of grace
The sparkle on my rainy days
She's my bliss

She takes me underneath her wings
When I feel blue
My sweet soulsister
Now my heart belongs to you


When I feel lonely, like a sailor lost at sea
She makes me realize what love can be
She is so good to me
