01. Nine Lives

Well well well
I feel just like I'm fallin' in love
There's a new cool
Some kind of verbooty
That fits me like a velvet glove

And it's cool
Shu bop a doo ba
She's talkin' to me Juba to Jive
Yeah, the girl's in love
No doubt about it
The moment of truth has arrived

And in a wink
The funk was all around me
And I think
I'm dead in love again

Nine Lives - Feelin' lucky
Nine Lives - Live again
Nine Lives - It ain't over
Nine Lives - Live for ten

I got good luck
In certain situations
I'm feelin' like I hung the moon
And then at times
I'm so weak from lovin'
I couldn't even carry a tune

But now I'm back
Oh yes I am
I maybe fall apart at the seams
I had a nightmare
Believe me when I tell you
Nobody ever dies in their dreams

I think I need a stay of execution
In a wink, I'm dead in love again

Nine Lives - Puss & booty
Nine Lives - Live again
Nine Lives - It ain't over
Nine Lives - Live for ten

Well well well
Engine room to bombardier
Is this a dream
I died and went to Heaven
She's enough to make you
Cry in your beer

How can a good thing
7 come 11
Slip into a fare thee well
And how can one man's
Little bit o' Heaven
Turn into another man's Hell

I think I need a stay of execution
Yeah I know, I'm dead in love again

Nine Lives - Hello lucky
Nine Lives - Live again
Nine Lives - It ain't over
Nine Lives - Try for ten

Nine Lives - Takin' over
Nine Lives - Live again
Nine Lives - It ain't over
Nine Lives - Live for ten

Nine Lives - Hello lucky
Nine Lives - Live again
Nine Lives - It ain't over
Nine Lives - Live for ten


02. Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)

You're so bad you're so bad you're so
You're so bad you're so bad

You think you're in love
Like it's a real sure thing
But every time you fall
You get your ass in a sling
You used to be strong
But now it's ooh baby please
'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees

You're so bad you're so bad you're so
You're so bad you're so bad

We was making love when you told me that you loved me
I thought ol' cupid he was taking aim
I was believer when you told me that you loved me
And then you called me someone else's name

There ain't gonna be no more beggin' you please
You know what I want
And it ain't one of these
You're bad to the bone
And your girlfriend agrees
That falling in love is so hard on the knees

You're so bad you're so bad you're so
You're so bad you're so bad

Chip off the old block
Man you're so much like your sister
My fantasize it must be out of luck
My old libido has been blowing a transistor
I feel like I have been hit by a fuck

Yeah

I'm Jonesin' on love
Yeah I got the DT's
You say that we will
But there ain't no guarantees

I'm major in love
But in all minor keys
Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees

What are you looking for
It's got to be hard core
Must be some kind of nouveau riche

Is this your only chance
Or some hypnotic trance
Let's get you on a tighter leash

Own it own it own it

You're so bad you're so bad you're so
You're so bad you're so bad

You ain't that good
Is what you said down to the letter
But you like the way I hold the microphone
Sometimes I'm good but when I'm bad
I'm even better
Don't give me no lip
I've got enough of my own

There ain't gonna be no more beggin' you please
You know what I want
And it ain't one of these
You're bad to the bone
And your girlfriend agrees
That falling in love is so hard on the knees

I'm Jonesin' on love
Yeah I got the DT's
You say that we will yeah
But there ain't no guarantees
I'm major in love
But in all minor keys
'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees


03. Hole In My Soul

I'm down a one way street
With a one night stand
With a one track mind
Out in no man's land
(The punishment sometimes don't seem to fit the crime)

Yeah there's a hole in my soul
But one thing I've learned
For every love letter written
There's another one burned
(So you tell me how it's gonna be this time)

Is it over
Is it over
'Cause I'm blowin' out the flame

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns the knife inside of me
Take a look and you will find there's nothing there girl
Yeah I swear, I'm telling you girl yeah 'cause
There's a hole in my soul that's been killing me forever
It's a place where a garden never grows
There's a hole in my soul, yeah I should have known better
'Cause your love's like a thorn without a rose

I'm as dry as a seven year drought
I got dust for tears
And I'm all tapped out
(Sometimes I feel broke and can't get fixed)

I know there's been all kinds of shoes underneath your bed
Now I sleep with my boots on but you're still in my head
(And something tells me this time I'm down to my last licks)
'Cause if it's over
Then it's over
And it's driving me insane

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns the knife inside of me
Take a look and you will find
There's nothing there girl yeah I swear
I'm telling you girl, yeah,
'Cause there's a hole in my soul
That's been killing me forever
It's a place where a garden never grows
There's a hole in my soul
Yeah, I should have known better
'Cause your love's like a thorn
Without a rose

Is it over
Yeah it's over
And I'm blowin' out the flame

Take a walk outside your mind
Tell me how it feels to be
The one who turns the knife inside of me
Take a look and you will find
There's nothing there girl yeah I swear
I'm telling you girl, yeah,
'Cause there's a hole in my soul
That's been killing me forever
It's a place where a garden never grows
There's a hole in my soul
Yeah, I should have known better
'Cause your love's like a thorn
Without a rose


04. Taste Of India

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta love the sweet taste of India
Blame it on the beat of the drum

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into ya
Any cat man do when it's done

Oh yeah she's got that kind of love incense
That lives in her back room
And when it mixes with the funk my friend
It turns into perfume

When you are born you're afraid of the darkness
And then you're afraid of the light
But I'm not afraid when I dance with my shadow

This time I'm gonna get it right
To think of what I'll get tonight
Just lookin' for a little taste, taste of India
She'll steal the smile right off your face

Her yin and yang
Is just the thing
She's unpredictable my friend

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into ya
Any cat man do when it's done

It's like your first taste love of vindaloo
That sets your heart on fire
And if you let her stuff get into you
It will be all that you desire

When you make love to the sweet tantric priestess
You drink in the bliss of delight
But I'm not afraid when I dance with her shadow

This time I'm gonna get it right
She's gonna whet my appetite
Just lookin' for a little taste, taste of India
She'll steal the smile right off your face

She a friend of mine
She a concubine
The sweetest wine
I gotta make her mine

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta love the sweet taste of India
Blame it on the beat of the drum

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into ya
Any cat man do when it's done

Just think of what I'll get tonight
She's gonna whet my appetite
Just lookin' for a little taste, taste of India
She'll steal the smile right off your face


05. Full Circle

Yeah, yeah
If I could change the world
Like a fairy tale
I would drink the love
From your Holy Grail
I would start with love
Tell ol' Beelzebub
To get outta town
'Cause you just lost your job
How did we get so affected ('cause I think)
Love is love reflected

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In Time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

And if
There's a spell on you that
I could take away
I would do the deed
Yeah and by the way
Here's to Heaven knows
As the circle goes
It ain't right
I'm uptight
Yeah and get off my toes

I used to think that every little thing I did was crazy
But now I think the Karma cops are comin' after you

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In Time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

Every time you get yourself caught up inside
Of someone else's crazy dream
Own it, yeah that's a mistake
Everybody's gotta lotta nada killing them
Instead of killing time

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In Time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In Time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss Heaven off
We got Hell to pay
Come full circle

Circle, circle, circle, circle, circle, circle, circle


06. Something's Gotta Give

Cyberotic head explode
Information overload
And I just can't take anymore
And I'm gonna break

Something's gotta give
Tell me when to turn the screw
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Comic books are comin' true
Does the noise in my head bother you

Digerotic mass appeal
Feels like flesh but tastes unreal
And I'm gonna break

Something's gotta give
Tell me when to turn the screw
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Don't you like it
Tell me true
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Hold your breath 'til you turn blue
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Comic books are comin' true
Does the noise in my head bother you

If love that seemed to fall from grace
Was sitting on your interface
Your megahertz she can't forgive
Your love it died before you ever lived

Something's gotta give
Tell me when to turn the screw
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Don't you like it
Tell me true
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Hold your breath til you turn blue
Does the noise in my head bother you
Something's gotta give
Comic books are comin' true

Does the noise in my head bother you


07. Ain't That A Bitch

Up in smoke you've lost another love
As you take a hit off your last cigarette
Strung out, burnt out
Yeah you're down on your luck
And you don't give a...
'Til the best part of you starts to twitch
Ain't that a bitch

Freak out! I'm alone now
I feel just like I'm losin' my mind
'Cause love is like the right dress
On the wrong girl
You never know what you're gonna find
You think you're high and fine as wine
Then you wind up like a dog in a ditch
'Cause love is like a wrong turn
On a cold night... yeah
Ain't that a bitch, ain't that a bitch

In a daze
In the throes of emotion
You see God in the Devil's eyes
Then you fall so far from grace
You wouldn't know a kiss
If it was on your face
You can tell it to the jury
But you ain't got no case

Freak out! I'm alone now
I feel just like I'm losin' my mind
'Cause love is like the right dress
On the wrong girl
You never know what you're gonna find
The gal was fine as calamine but not
Enough to scratch a seven year itch
'Cause love is like the last licks
Outta Hendrix... yeah
Ain't that a bitch, ain't that a bitch

Then you feel so out of place
Lickin' up the arsenic
From the same old lace
You know the stuff is poison
But you gotta have a taste

You gotta
Freak out! I'm alone now
I feel just like I'm losin' my mind
'Cause love is like the right dress
On the wrong girl
You never know what you're gonna find
You think you're high and fine as wine
Then you wind up with your face in the ditch
'Cause love is like a warm gun
On a cold night... yeah
Ain't that a bitch, ain't that a bitch


08. The Farm

There's a cockroach in my coffee
There's a needle in my arm
And I feel like New York Cittay
Get me to the farm

Get me to the farm
Get me to the farm
Somebody get me to the farm

I got terminal uniqueness
I'm an egocentric man
I get caught up in my freakness
But I ain't no Peter Pan
Get me to the farm

Get me to the farm
Get me to the farm
Get me...

Buckle up straight jack
Sanity is such a drag
Jellybean thorazine
Transcendental jet lag

Sanity I ain't gotta
Feeling like a pi'ata
Sucker punch - blowin' lunch
Motherload - pigeonholed
I'm feeling like I'm gonna explode

I wanna be a Hare Krishna
Tattoo a dot right on my head
And the prozac is my fixer
I am the living dead

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Somebody take me to the farm
Somebody take me to the farm

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Somebody take me to the farm
Somebody take me to the farm

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm

Take me to the farm
Take me to the farm
Somebody take me to the farm


09. Crash

Sitting on a castle
On the floor with Esmeralda
Waiting for the Geezer
Captain Crunch to come around
Feeling suicidal
'Coz of certain situations
Hanging from the stairs
Too long
I think I'm coming down

It's time to crash
Losin' my mind, losin' my mind, losin' my mind
Yeah it's time to crash

Doin' tons of colon blow
Stuffing it in every hole
Miles high so am I
Watching Jimi kiss the sky
Salle diner becomes a blur
With everybody jammin'
Republicans begin to sin
The batwings start a slamming

It's time to crash
Losin' my mind, losin' my mind, losin' my mind
Maybe it's a little late but it's time to crash

You drive me crazy

Captain Billy Beemish
Put a lamb up on a rack
Thanks for coming Billy
And we hope you're comin' back
The castle will be waiting
For the next bangers and mash
Blanche and Marsha Reznick
Put their marmite with their hash

It's time to crash
Losin' my mind, losin' my mind, losin' my mind
Yeah it's time to crash


10. Kiss Your Past Goodbye

Finders keepers losers weep
Down on 42nd Street
Bare-foot children cryin' my-oh-my
I watched you on the avenue
While other men were having you
I think that you should let your caged bird fly

And kiss your past good-bye
Kiss your past good-bye
Kiss your past good-bye, yeah
Kiss your past good-bye

I've been so lost I must confess
I've had my share of loneliness
But yeah it's hard to keep a good man down
The loves you lost were all in vain
The past lives on inside your brain
I don't think you need those memories
Hangin' 'round, yeah

Good-bye
Kiss your past good-bye
You've gotta let it fly
Kiss your past good-bye, yeah

And if that bird don't fly away
There's just one thing I got to say

It's later than a deuce a ticks
Your broken heart, it needs a fix
You're feedin' off a high that would not last
And people they don't seem to care
And sorry just don't cut it, yeah
It seems to me you're gettin' nowhere fast

So... Kiss... your... past

Or kiss your ass good-bye
Kiss your past good-bye
There's no more tears to cry
So kiss your past good-bye
Kiss your past good-bye

Or kiss your ass good-bye
Yeah


11. Pink

Pink it's my new obsession
Pink it's not even a question,
Pink on the lips of your lover, 'cause
Pink is the love you discover

Pink as the bing on your cherry
Pink 'cause you are so very
Pink it's the color of passion
'Cause today it just goes with the fashion

Pink it was love at first sight
Pink when I turn out the light, and
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

You could be my flamingo
'Coz pink is the new kinda lingo
Pink like a deco umbrella
It's kink - but you don't ever tell her

Pink it was love at first sight, and
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink gets me high as a kite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight

I want to be your lover
I wanna wrap you in rubber
As pink as the sheets that we lay on
Pink it's my favorite crayon, yeah

Pink it was love at first sight
Pink when I turn out the light
Pink it's like red but not quite
And I think everything is going to be all right
No matter what we do tonight


12. Falling Off

I was a young man
Whose Intentions were good
Kept my hands in my pockets
The way that I should

I soon found out
They got a mind of their own
Beginning to think
I had a heart
Made of stone

I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off

I try to remember
I try to forget
I'll keep my promise
Is that what I said

I had your number
But I didn't call
I got no excuse
I got my back to the wall

I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off

My eyes don't want to see
My ears don't want to hear
The things that make me feel
That keep me so endeared to you
It makes me think
Is that the best that I can do

It doesn't matter
The time that I fall
I'm up for the next one
Like I'm ten feet tall

I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off

I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off
I keep falling off


13. Attitude Adjustment

This girl that I knew
She loved me and blew me away
We made love no doubt
But she never went out of her way

I keep wonderin', I keep wonderin' why
Do the wings of your butterfly
Lightenin' thunder
I keep wonderin' why

Hey I think you need an attitude adjustment
Knock-down drag out
I got to make myself a latitude adjustment
With or without

I was rather naive
So I didn't believe when you said
Our love is in jail
Honey you hit the nail on the head

Well I keep wonderin', I keep wonderin' why
Do the wings of your butterfly
Lightenin' thunder
Ain't no wonderin' why

Hey I think you need an attitude adjustment
Knock-down drag out
Don't you ever baby, wonder where the lust went
With or without

Now I know what it is
'Cause I know what you are
No more cryin' eyes my friend
Excusem fuckin' moi

No more wonderin'
I got news for you

Hey I think you need an attitude adjustment
Knock-down drag out
I gots to make myself a latitude adjustment
I'm headin' south

Yeah I think you need an attitude adjustment
From inside out


14. Fallen Angels

There's a candle burning in the world tonight
For another child who vanished out of sight
And a heart is broken, another prayer in vain
There's a million tears that fill a sea of pain

Sometimes I stare out my window
My thoughts all drift into space
Sometimes I wonder if there's a better place

(Tell me)
Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling

Now the times is frightening
Can't ignore the facts
There's so many people
Just slippin' through the cracks

So many ashes are scattered
So many rivers run dry
Sometimes your Heaven is Hell and you don't know why

(So listen)
Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

Can you hear me
Can you hear me
Somewhere out there there's a shining light
And I got to be with you tonight

And with all we're nowhere
We still pay the price
Yeah the Devil seems to get his way
In downtown paradise

Where do fallen angels go
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

Where do fallen angels go, tell me
I just don't know
Where do fallen angels go
They keep falling, falling, falling...

There's a candle burning...
