Jesus Mary & The Holy Ghost
Prime time
Nursery rhyme
Did you see the teacher
Sister
Black and white
What she's gonna to do

They say eye for eye, tooth for tooth
But don't hurt your brother
Cross-road, overload

Oh, I, I testify
They just showed me Mary
She was stoned, stoned, danger zone
There was nothing in her eyes

And then there, there in the air
Nailed to the cross was Jesus
Cross-road, overload

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray my soul to keep away
>From the holy spirit, holy ghost
They're hiding in the dark

Oh, nightmare, electric chair
You might not get to heaven
Bad boys, shout for joy
Watch him to cry

Prime time
Nursery rhyme
Love just needs religion
Cross-road, overloadback to top
Firehead
Who's that angry man I see
Is he coming closer
Well I'll just make believe
That I've never been afraid

Crackle, Crackle,
You're all dead
Feel the heat from firehead

>From spooky stories that he's read
They put pictures on his body
Living out a fantasy
To be the last one left alive, hah!

Crackle, Crackle,
You're all dead
Feel the heat from firehead

He's lost the instruction
No control
Suicide fever, he won't be much older
I know, won't go, away

What's that smoke that I can see
Rising from the ashes
Well, it seems that there will always be
Someone just like you

Crackle, Crackle,
And you're all dead
Feel the heat from firehead, firehead, firehead!back to top
Strange Highways
It's a crazy world we['re] live in
And I'm leaving it today
For another institution
We crazy people play
Every time I climb the mountain
And it turned into a hill
I promised me that I'd move on
And I will.

I, I, good for nothing
Going nowhere, so they say
Hey, someone give me blessings
For they say that I have sinned
That when I crawl inside myself
And ride into the wind
On Strange Highways
On Strange Highways

Hey you! I want your number
Don't even wonder
We do things our way here
Questions
These are forbidden
We got no answers
Believe us anyway

So here is my confession:
It's the only broken rule
Sometimes I crawl inside of me
Where I can be the fool
On Strange Highways
On Strange Highways

Oh

You can see the other side
And you shall come over
You can't leave the other side
If you say I will

Everytime I climb the mountain
And it turned into a hill
Well, I promised me
I'd disappear
And now I know I will

So, someone give me blessings
For the times you say I've sinned
So I can crawl inside myself
And ride into the wind
On Strange Highways
On Strange Highways

Questions
They're forbidden
Hey you, what's your number
Oh, we've got no answers
Don't you even wonder

Oh, Strange Highways
Oohback to top
Hollywood Black
Came to the sunset scene
To find out who's inside of me
Some lies I've never seen
But this one lies on the silver screen
In between real and dream
Like a scream

Hollywood black
I'm caught in the middle
Hollywood black

Same story, different eyes
Here's where the hero never, never dies
Can't you tell
That all the wishes you've made
Have filled up the well

Hollywood black
Caught in the middle
Hollywood black
Yeah
Oh, Hollywood black
Right in the middle
Too late to little

Back to the street again
Or was that yesterday
Another yesterday's gone, gone

Back in the jungle
Running with the animals
Howling at the sign of the spotlight
Ooh

Those dreams are made of glass
You throw just one stone
And then there goes your last window
Can't you tell
That every wish that you made
Filled up the well

Hollywood black
Caught in the middle
Hollywood black

Hollywood black
Right in the middle
Ah, Hollywood black
Hollywood black
Caught in the middle
Too late to little
And only the fools come back
'Cause Hollywood is blackback to top
Evilution
Good night, we're closing again
Come back, we're open tomorrow
We've finished today
I'm just staying away
We know what's good for the brain

Oh, plastic dreams and fast machines
Pushing it to the limit
Girls and boys who think that noise
Is music in the air
Twisted felon, stay awhile
Here's your invitation
Dirty rags and body bags
Evilution

Hello, we're open once more
Come in, you need no appointment
We're thinking in time
That you'll move down the line
And represent the business in hell
Well, well

Tell her hope is gone but you carry on
We can set the soul free
All is lost so what's it costs
To listen anyway
The world upstairs where no-one cares
Is just about to crumble
See it through we'll burn for you
Evilution company

Oh, neon names play neon games
Showing it to the public
I hate you and you hate me
And everybody smiles
So money talks and no-one walks
But everybody's crawling
Golden rags and body bags
Evilution

Hello, good night, it's me
I'm open again
Come back, come in, good bye
We're closedback to top
Pain
Give me a choice between pleasure and pain
I choose pain

Another day without a heartbeat
How can your heart beat
If they've taken it away
For the first time, just don't think about it
Take the water and wash your face with pain

You can take away the power
Your finest hour
It's when you laugh in their faces
For the first time just forget about it
Take a hammer and pound yourself with pain

Ooh

Bury my bones on the moon
If they never should find me it would be too soon
Give me a choice between power and pain
I choose pain

Oh, bury my bones on moon
If they never should find me it would be too soon
For the first time just forget about
Take the water and wash your face with pain
Pain
Oh just forget about pain
Forget about the pain
Pain, pain, pain, pain, pain!back to top
One Foot In The Grave
Here we go again, must be delirious
Can't close my eyes
Sleep is just a drug, this must be serious
This must be serious
Does this go on and on forever

Sometimes in the dark I feel invincible
I wonder why
I hear voices out of shadows
And shadows never lie

Helter skelter
Now give me shelter
Use the children like toys
Eat your lover
Then find an another
There be good [become] little boys
Boys will be boys

I got two hands to hold you
Two arms around you
The master and the slave
Two eyes to watch you
Two hands to help you
Put one foot in the grave

Here we go again, must be delirious
Can't close my eyes, no
Sleep is just a drug, this must be serious
This must be serious

Helter skelter
Now, give me shelter
My brain is twisting again
I could be dreaming this
No, I'm screaming this
No more, no

I got two hands to hold you
Two arms around you
The master and the slave
Two eyes to watch you
Two hands to help you
Put one foot in the graveback to top
Give Her The Gun
She heard this song before
Daddy's at the door
Just to say I love you

Please, please, don't let him in
Is it all beginning again tonight?
Somebody make it right!

I say: Give her the gun!
Look at him run away
Give her the gun
Before the next one comes along
And doesn't pay

He, dragged into the cold
Momma sold her soul
For one more ride to heaven

Please, someone let him in
Is it all beginning again tonight
Can anyone make it right?

I say: Give him the gun!
Look at her run away
Oh, give him the gun
Before the next one comes along
And doesn't pay

Simply unforgivable, destruction of the heart
Does anybody tell
Make yourself invisible
Be blinded by the light
We're hiding away, what would they say
Yeah

She played this song before
Daddy's at the door
Just to say hello, ahh

Now, in a different world
Is it all beginning again tonight
Oh, I got to make it right
I say: give her the gun
Look at him run away
Oh, give her the gun
Before the next one comes along

Give her the gun
Look at him falling down
Oh, give her the gun
Before the next one comes along

'Cause it goes round and round and round...back to top
Blood From A Stone
Oh, you've been surprised again
Pulled like a leaf to the waterfall
Everybody's just pretending
I thought that you'd learn by now

Ooh, think about it one more time
What have you got when the god is gone
Clouds don't have a silver lining
And all you ever get is rain

'Cause you can't get blood from a stone
You can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone
You can't get blood from a stone

It isn't once upon a time
When nobody falls and the hero flies
That victims got to fit the crime
And nobody goes down with you
You, you!

'Cause you can't get blood from a stone
You can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone
You can't get blood from a stone
No, no

'Cause you can't get blood from a stone
You can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone
No, you can't get blood from a stone

No blood from a stone
Go on and leave me alone
And I know it's a shock
To learn that you can't
You can't, you can't get blood from a rockback to top
Here's To You
Here's to you!

Here's to you! Here's to me!
Masters of the universe
The curse of destiny

All for one, it's one for all
Now you can pull the trigger
As we're knocking down on the wall
When you finally shoot too high
The lie will always bring it down

You resurrection angels,
Look what we found
That the wheel goes around
So here's to you!

Come on, raise the dead
Heads will roll
Cancel the infection
We can purify the soul

Do the crime
Then write the law
There's no wrong you can change it where
A change you've never saw

Hey, you desperation angels
Here we found
That they all fell down
So
Here's to me! Here's to you!

Here's to you! Here's to me!
Here's to reason!
Oh
Here's to me! Here's to you!
Raise the dead! Here's to freedom!back to top
Bring Down The Rain
Did you ever believe in your dreams before
Were you always afraid of the dark
Is the edge of the world always in your head
Does the gun point straight at your heart

It used to come just when you sleep
But now, it's only a shout away

You always seem to find the sun
But this time, the sun is a fire
Bring down the rain
This house is burning again
Put out the flame
Bring down the rain

You were told that the storm would just roll on by
That the thunder was made in your mind
And the heat in the night was to keep you warm
And the truth could be told by a lier now

You always seem to find the light
But this time, the light is a fire
Bring down the rain
This house is burning again
Put down the flame
Bring down the rain

Shake up, break up, everybody make up
Everything's always the same
Trapped down, trapped down, everybody back down
Bring down the rain

You always seem to find the light
But this time, the light is a fire
Bring down the rain
This house is burning again
Don't play the game
Bring down the rain
Put out the flame
Bring down the rain

It's the shake up, break up, everybody make up
Well, it's always the same
Trapped down, cracked down, everybody back down
Won't you bring down all the rain
