01. Love For Sale

Looking good, stepping out, looking for romance
Crazy arms, crazy legs, save me the last dance
Hold me tight, make me warm, give me shelter
Treat me right, in from the storm, helter skelter
You know the way, the game is tough
Need some motivation, to help you get it up

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale

Call me up, call me back, call me what you want to
Shoot your shot, shoot the moon, nothing that you can't do
All for me, one for all, shoulder to shoulder
Here and gone, sure like to ball, rock n' roller
You know the way, stuff goes around,
You need a half nelson, to help you get it down

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale

Rip it up, rip it out, Shake your money maker
Feels so good, in and out, real earth shaker
Get up close, stroke your bones, get a grip babe
Take a trip, take me home, feel the earth shift babe
You know the way, so get it right
You don't need an airplane, to get you through the night

Cause it's only, love for sale,
Heart of gold and hard as nails
I can't believe it's legal,
To send it through the mail
Only love for sale


02. Dogs Of War

Stand or fall, live or die (Stand)
Strong and true to the end (Now)
Fly the flag, let them see (Sky)
We will never bend the knee (Don't fail)
We are the last of all (Here)
If we give way we lose (No)
So can you stand with me? (We can)
Will you now pay your dues (Hai)
The tales they tell, of how we stand this day
We that defend our cause
Will last a thousand years
Come now the dogs of war

Break or hold, die or kill (Live)
Try or fail, or succeed (Fight)
We must be an iron wall (Hold)
When the heart receives the call (We go)
We are the least of them (Fight)
We are few, but we are brave (Yes)
So can you stand with me (We Will)
If it leads you to your grave (Hai)

The tales they tell, of how we stood this day
We few that know the law
Will last a thousand years
Hear now the dogs of war

Sun is set, darkness falls (See)
Now comes the enemy (Beware)
Draw sword and shield defy (Hai)
All their wives must scream and cry (Stand fast)
We are the last hope now (Last)
Of all our people fair, so will you die with me (We do)
Will you now do your share (Hai)

The tales they tell, of what we do this day
We that guard the door
Will last a thousand years
Let go the dogs of war


03. Snake Bite Love

In the zoo, in the zoo
I wanna see the snakes
I don't want to see the lions
Or the gorillas or the apes
I want to see a python
Squeeze somebody tight
Or a Boa Constrictor
In the middle of the night
Snake hips boy, gonna lay you down
Gonna spoil your fun
Don't tread on him when he's around
Don't tread on him when he's around
He'll squeeze you 'till you fit real good
Snake bite love, snake bite love

In the jungle, in the jungle
I don't wanna see the trees
I don't wanna see the flowers
Or the beetles or the bees
I wanna see an Anaconda
Coiled in the gloom
Suffocate an alligator,
Beneath a tropical moon

Snake hips boy, gonna lay you down
Gonna bite your ass
Don't tread on him when he's around
Don't tread on him when he's around
Slide over, you're just like a glove
Snake bite love, snake bite love

In the summer, in the summer
I don't wanna see the plants
I don't wanna see the termites
Or the rabbits or the ants
I wanna see a cobra,
Inflate his scary hood
And bite the unsuspecting,
I think that's really good

Snake hips boy, gonna lay you down
Gonna lose his skin
Don't tread on him when he's around
Don't tread on him when he's around
He'll squeeze you 'till you fit real good
Snake bite love, snake bite love
Don't tread on him when he's around
Don't tread on him when he's around
Forked tongue make you feel so good
Snake bite love, snake bite love


04. Assasin

Die now, no more time
I am death. The hand is mine
Great honour comes to thee
Tonight in my reach
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Your years all dust, speak my name.
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
We shall see, as before, you are marked, my heart is pure
Great honour falls to me. I come tonight, the hand is mine
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Your years all dust, speak my name.
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Desert be thy grave
Thy life be mine to take or save
Mine eye upon thee
I taste thy death
I am assassin
Look well, see my face, I am death, I will not wait.
Great armies shall bow to me. I come tonight, the hand is mine
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Your years all dust, speak my name.
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin
Assassin, Assassin, Assassin, Assassin

Desert be thy grave
Thy life be mine to take or save
Mine eye upon thee
I taste thy death
I am assassin

And many be thy sins
Thy life be forfeit, the heart within, should flinch now dog
and freeze thy spine, I want thy life, the hand is mine

Now blood, is satisfied
I ride by night, to make thee die
My hand upon thee, my heart is pure
I am assassin
I smiled, I dreamed thy fear
My arm is long to reach thee here
All men shall tremble, their houses fall
I am assassin


05. Take The Blame

You can see the way we do it here
You will be alright if you can change
You can be a rich man, you can start to climb.
Get into the rhythm, step into the line.

Politicians eat your words
Prohibition that's a joke
Exhibition of the criminally insane
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame

You can be the new arising star
You can be the super new-wave boy
You can be a tyrant, you can rule by fear
That's the way they like it, stick it in their ear

Politicians eat your words
Prohibition that's a joke
Put your own children in Jail with a shame
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame

Politician swine, you make me wanna puke
Waste my money, waste my time.
going by the book
Education fails no need to teach the poor
They just get in the way, until we have a war.
until we have a war...

You will never sorrow for your friends
You will never miss them for a day
You will be a hero, you will be a king
Get into the money, get into the swing

Politicians eat your words
Prohibition that's a joke
You can't fool everybody, you should be ashamed
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame
You can take the money,
but can you take the blame

See you on TV, you talk and talk and talk
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah
Liars, thieves and dorks
You may be in control,
so how come you're so scared
Is it because you feel, the hatred everywhere,
the hatred everywhere.


06. Dead And Gone

Woke up insane today
Dreamed I was blown away
Ten thousand called my name
Asleep at the wheel again
Turn me down, turn me down
Take my head and turn it around
Turn me on, turn me on
Everything I do is wrong

Woke up in hell today
Spoke to the devil, he turned away
All of my friends were there
They didn't have no time to spare
Turn me down, turn me down
Step back and I hit the ground
Turn me on, turn me on
Everything I do is wrong

Out of the night comes a song that I know
Twisted and ruined and black
I can remember the people they were
Nobody knows if they ever come back
Lost in the ashes of time they still sing
Echoes of romance gone bad
I can remember them better than you
I shared the darkness they had
Dead and gone, dead and gone

Woke up in my grave today
I dreamed I heard you say
All of eternity was pain
I laid my head back down again

Turn me down, turn me down
Your lips move but you make no sound
Turn me on, turn me on
Everything I do is wrong

Out of the night comes a song that I know
Twisted and ruined and black
I can remember the people they were
Nobody knows if they ever come back
Lost in the ashes of time they still sing
Echoes of romance gone bad
I can remember them better than you
I shared the nightmares they had
Dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone
So long, so long, so long
Dead and gone.


07. Night Side

Horror stalks the dark night
Keeps the world from our sight
We can't see all of the silent ones coming
To take the ultimate bite
No lucky charm will suffice
To keep the monsters at bay
No clove of garlic or crucifix ever
Kept the vampires away
Night side, night side
Open wide, open wide
Night side, hell-born
Night side, devil-spawn

Darkness, in our poor eyes
Helps the night to disguise
The legions of crawling &
Hopping black horrors
Who come to aid our demise
No lucky charms ever help
To keep us safe while we sleep
No incantation or pentacle ever
Kept the strong from the weak

Night side, night side.
Open wide, open wide
Night side, hell-born
Night side, devil-spawn
Night side, night side.
Demons ride, demons ride
Night side, ripped and torn
Night side, devil-spawn

Terror, afraid of the dark.
Hear the devil dog bark.
You cannot hope you can
Ever outrun them
And their teeth are ever so sharp

No way to save your poor self
No way to keep you immune
No magic ever produced will assist you
To outlive the full of the moon

Night side, night side
Open wide, open wide
Night side, hell-born
Night side, devil-spawn
Night side, open wide
Night side, devil-spawn
Night side, night side


08. Don't Lie To Me

People talking but it ain't the truth
Lyin' ain't no substitute
You ought to be ashamed of yourself
Try to put the blame on somebody else
Ain't no reason I know
To stop you reaping what you sow
You must know right from wrong
Don't make out, you don't know what's going on.
A man's gotta do it right
And if we gotta fight all night
That's alright. I got time.
And fighting liars suits me just fine
A man oughta tell it true
According to his point of view
And whatever you want to be
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me
People talking round and round
Whisper rumours try to bring you down
You can't make shit into gold
And nothings over 'till the story's told
People talking all around the world
Eating facts and throwing up words
Turn around so I can see your face
I don't care if you need your space

A man's gotta be a man and you can see just what I am
There ain't no room for mistakes
Everybody knows the moves they ought to make
A man's gotta tell the truth.
And if it's good, he don't need proof
And whoever you think you see
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me.

People talkin' but they just don't know
Ain't got no pride no more
Want to be on TV so bad
They give away all the honour they had
Ain't no way I can see that people gonna listen to me
But I know what I know
And I'll see more than you'll ever show

A man's gotta play the game
And save the worth of his name
Cause waiting out there on the edge
Is everything you need to make a fool of yourself
And if you want to know the score
It that's what you're waiting for
Don't look at me, I won't tell
You better get out and see yourself
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me
Don't lie to me
You know I hate that shit baby
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me
Uh-huh honey, can't you see
Don't lie to me, don't lie to me.


09. Joy Of Labour

Woke up dead, you know I woke up dead
Give me time to get it through my head
They hanged me by the neck, I heard the devil laugh
I was a nervous wreck, I was the first in line
Do you want to look right in the devil's face?
You must have seen the ground where we upheld the Law
I was a young man then, I was a young man then
Spending time on the killing floor
Do as you would want to be
Joy of labour, sets you free

Woke up scared, you know I woke up scared
Give me time to show you, how I wound up there
They put me in a cell, I heard the ghost in there
I wasn't feeling well, I was the first in line

Do you want see right through the devil's eyes?
You must have seen the ground where they all stood before
I was a young man then, I was a young man then
Spending time on the killing floor
Be more than you seem to be
Joy of labour, sets you free

Woke up dead, you know I woke up dead
I was the only one, that saw the road ahead
They beat me with their fists
I did the devil's work
And I was on their list, I was the first in line

Do you even know what the devil does
He drives a man 'till he can't take no more
I was a young man then, I was a young man then
Spending time on the killing floor


10. Desperate For You

What's up? What's up? What's up motherfucker?
I think I call your bluff
Who's there? Who's there?
I think I know, but I don't think I care
Came in on the Flyer honey, 1952.
I ain't for hire for money so I'll tell you what I'll do
I'm gonna be a gangster, a gangster of love
I might not be Al Capone, but I think I'll be quite good
I'm all I got right now, so what are we gonna do
I think I'm a desperado, desperate for you
Way cool. Way cool.
I don't talk like this, but I like to bend the rules.
Too bad, it's too bad.
To think of the face of a man whose woman you had
Came in on the Silver Streak, 1964.

I ain't for hire for money, but it sure beats being poor
I'm gonna be an outlaw, just like Jesse James
Rob all of your banks
And the occasional train And if Bobby Ford should shoot me, I know just what you'd do
That's why I'm a desperado, desperate for you.

I'm gonna blow your brains out, just like Sirhan Sirhan
You might not remember him, but believe me I sure can
Gonna be a national hero, gonna be a household name
Gonna be like a roaring wind, like a hurricane
You'll never see it coming, might not hear it too
You know I'm a desperado, desperate for you

Desperate man, you know that's me Baby

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
But it can be arranged


11. Better Off Dead

Don't you believe in me now?
Now that you found a new friend
Anything goes but the truth
Messages we never send
Chorus.

Anything goes when the angels sing
Dance on volcanoes
Wait see what tomorrow brings
Better of dead, better of dead
Better of dead, than your ass in a sling

Why can't you open the door?
I got the key in my hand
I guess we're breaking the law
I guess I don't understand

Anything goes, but I must refuse
Show me some action
Wait 'till you see the news
Better of dead, better of dead

What is the problem here
Get with the program
Why do you stand accused
Better of dead, better of dead
Better of dead
Like to see you walk a mile in my shoes

What is the voice we don't hear
Is it still talking to you
I hope it's speaking real clear
I hope it's pulling you through
Anything goes, but I have to be fair
Teach you a lesson
Wait 'till I know you care
Better of dead, better of dead
Come and dance in your wheelchair
Show me some traction

Let me know when you get there
Better of dead, better of dead, better of dead
Keep all your love in your head
