Oh Serena
Distillers - Oh Serena




Oh Serena, I know what theyre saying about you
They all say its a resistance
They all say that ya didnt listen
Well they all have scars on their eyes, its true
Night and day is like a haunted replay
I know it girl ill pray for you
Just remember its not stronger than you
Oh Serena, i know what theyre saying about you
You tasted death, but, ill shed the night, night irreverant all
The time, carneleby is a bit of you
Time to feel it, time to fix it. time to lure it, oh
No time to miss it, time to lure this stone cold
Weather, time alone and time away, i know what they say
Oh serena. i know what theyre saying about you
I know the pains inside you
I know what theyre saying about you
...It's not true...back to top
Idoless
Distillers - Idoless




I dont know but i know it
You better find out what your place is
Urban plight is in the city streets
Its infectious and its complacent
Idoless
Over expression and rationed, assimilated temptation
Integrity- integrate...integregation
Molestedm accosted, detested
I'll wreck this coming down like the apocalypse
Idoless..syndication
I dont know but i know it
You better find out what your name is
Arrested, infested, its your collective
Coming off like you wrote the ten commandments
Idoless
I dont know but i know it
You better find out what your place is
Urban plight is in the city streets
Its infectious and you are complacent
Idoless
The idol is within you
Watch it come on through
The idol is within you
Watch it come on through
The World Comes Tumblin Downback to top
L.A. Girl
L.A girl!



This is a story about a circle of women.
L.A women, on a L.A mission...
This is the glory, gonna get their hooks in,
Gonna drag you way down
Do you wanna go home soon?

Yeah god almighty what the, Fuck happened to you?
I'm not, red, white and blue
Outta mind, outta sight
Every day and all night,
I watch your pale ass on the street,
Why do you walk on through?

Then she went glassy, a sawn off tradgedy,
A lyrics of city, a new begining...
Power and glory in the name of the enemy!
You sell your restless casualty for power and glory...

Yeah god almighty what the fuck happened to you..
i'm Not red, white and blue,
Outta mind, outta sight,
Every day and all night
I watch your pale ass on the street why d'ya walk on through?
Hey,yeah yeah yeah
hey, yeah, ,yeah ,yeah.

Do i miss you, do i miss you, miss you at all?
Do i miss you, do i miss you? I don't miss you at all.

And i say, God almighty what the fuck happened to you?
I'm not, red, white and Blue
Outta mind, Outta sight
Every day and all night
I watch your pale ass on the street, Why d'ya walk on through?

Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah etc.back to top
Distilla Truant
i dont know why ya come here
i dont know what you want from me
everybody says you use me

oh why did you take that
oh why did you make me
im the one whos suffering, for you

yeah what do you think
i bet you would die for your country
sit here and bleed

oh she fell, i hate you
why?back to top
Ask the Angels
Ask the angels who they're calling
Go ask the angels if they're calling to thee
Ask the angels while they're falling
Who that person could possibly be

And I know you got the feeling
You know, I feel it crawl across the floor
And I know it got you reelin
And honey honey the call is for war
And it's wild wild wild wild

Everybody got the feelin
You know the feeling and it's stronger each day
Everybody wants to be reelin
And baby baby I'll show you the way

And I know it's hard sometimes
You got a piece and hit across the sky
And I know it's hard sometimes
And world war is the battle cry
And it's wild wild wild wild

Across the country through the fields
You know I see it written 'cross the sky
People rising from the highway
And war war is the battle cry
And it's wild wild wild wild

Armageddon, it's gotten
No savior jailer can take it from me
World ending, it's just beginning
And rock and roll is what I'm born to be
And it's wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wild

Ask the angels if they're startin' to move
Comin' in droves in from L.A.
Ask the angels if they're starting to groove
Lightning as armor and it's today
It's wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wild
Wild wild wild wildback to top
Old Scratch
Distillers - Old Scratch




Heres the chance to express your liberty
No-one but you can know what stepping down can mean
Despotic leader kills the bravest traitor on the street
But keep the faith They say they'll free us (me) from our pain
They sell you a religous escapade
You join the church and they take your life away!
Shameless money, eat your money, eat your vultures quick
But keep the faith They say they'll free us from our pain, but,
You liberty is exchanged I said you liberty's exchanged
Are your liberties exchanged?.back to top
Girlfixer
no more coquettish look on your face
not so much pretty ugly but youre in your place
hide behind your man dont dare to think for you
keep your claws off me as i walk on through, dont you glare
im not the kind of girl who will just pull on your hair
i wont be through til youre blue

damn man come on and sell your seconds
no one can make ya make ya break ya
anyway i will break ya, theyll crown me

never used to harm noone no matter what the reason
now you drug your grave and its bitch hunting season
smiling madly honey when i see you
around biding my time till i can get you on the ground
its not my plan to steal your man
its a pitiful sight thats hard to stand
i guess i dont get a clue
so just step your ass aside and let me walk on fucking through

damn man come on and sell your second
no one can make you do anything
anyway anyway ill make you theyll crown meback to top

Red Carpet and Rebellion
Distillers - Red Carpet And Rebellion




Red carpet and rebellion
Makes you wonder at these established ones,
they ain't out to get you 'cuz your a mile away
I heard i siron, a city warning, it said a new sun arrives every morning
So i wait out tonight, For thenew sunrise
They lay me to rest withan,an abberation
I woke up the living dead, colossaly mistaken
And i ran through the streets where i break down

There ain't no money, ain't no time
Yeah, Im outta my mind
Dont wanna waste this away
(im fed up)Shamed when i am, shamed when Im not
Configuration of the american dream

The palace deisled, the streets are burning
A red horizon came crashing through the morning
There was no contentment, only bloodshed
Red blood and social discontent
Bruised by puritan, Oh puritan exempt
Its like a peasent uprising

Chorus

Saint Pettersberg 1905, Father Garpan led theprotest up inside
Up inside sewers break down. it break down

Oh...Oh we are gone

Chorus

Red carpet and rebellion, makes you wonder
why they smell so bad they ain't out to get you 'cuz your a mile awayback to top
Colossus U.S.A.
Distillers - Colossus U.S.A.




Whatcha live for when you no one.
What ya do and where ya come from.
You call i feel a lack of grace.
A certain disconnection, dissapated understanding.
Seems like second slitting,
seems like second slitting in 3rd world company.
I know what you wanted. i know that you want it, want it.
Well hell yeah.
Don't walk away.
Don't walk away.
Don't walk away.
Shit, i met a man on the street.
He said this is poverty.
Downtown on broadway st.
I don't really know his name.
He said "live in the world, not for gain."
I know what you want, hey.
I know that you want it, want it.
I know what you wanted.
I know that you want it...back to top

and when i saw gypsy rose gypsy rose she rose to me

The Blackest Years
Distillers - The Blackest Years




Oh Berlin! your heart has been drawn and quartered again.
The east and the west were divided by a wall,
That staunched their freedom...
Well the wall came down in 1989,
But its ghost still refuses to leave.
These hauntings are so reputative.
Theres a bit of you in me...
Oh Berlin! your life is on fire,
It burns deep within this heart of mine.
You got astronomical, economical, suffereing for a century.
And when the ocean swells,
That day i'll get on my ship and i'll sail away.
All this shit... i'm on this ship.
And when you're all alone, don't forget me.
cause when i'm all alone, i won't forget you.
When you're all alone don't forget me, cause.
I'm on the wrong side of the tracks,
But i did not know until you turned you're back.
I'm living the blackest years of my life,
But i did not know until you said goodbye... goodbye.
Oh Berlin, your witness stands here.
On this city shamed kinda day... i'm going home.
Hey, hey.
I'm going home, yeah i'm going home, yeah i'm going home.
When you're all alone don't forget me.
When i'm all alone i won't forget you.
I won't ever forget you.
I'm on the wrong side of the tracks.
I did not know until you turned your back.
I'm living the blackest years of my life.
I did not know until you said goodbye, goodbye...
I'm sorry gertie rouge.
We were young girls.
In a small world,
I'm on your doorstep man,
Ringing' your bell.back to top
