Cold Metal
Pop

Uh
I played tag in the auto graveyard
I looked up at the radio tower
Rag tent by the railroad tracks
Concrete poured over steel bridge
Pondered my fate
While they built the interstate

I'm a product of america
From the morgue to the prisons
Cold metal, when I start my band
Cold metal, in my garbage can
Cold metal, gets in my blood
And my attitude

Yeah, a huh

Threw my hide in an automobile
Heard a song called drive the wheel
Truckers, trailers, tractors caught me workin'

This is the song of my heritage
From the bad to the buddha
Cold metal, that's what it be
Cold metal, from sea to sea
Cold metal, it's how we win
And also how we sin
How we sin, how we sin, how we sin, how we sin

Cold metal, in the afternoon
Sounds lovely like a hendrix tune
Cold metal, it's the father of beat
The mother of the street
Cold metal, it rolls on by
Cold metal, gonna raise it high
Cold metal, it'll even fly
Rust buckets in the sky
Cold metal, got to be
Skeleton of the free
Cold metal, it's gotta be
Better save a tree
Save a tree, save a tree, save a tree, save a tree

High on You
Pop

I like your wooden door, baby
I never want to leave, baby
If I could rule the night, baby
I'd turn it into white
There wouldn't _? _

I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
High on you

I like your rugged cross, baby
I don't pray in churches, baby
I got nowhere to worship, baby
Because it isn't him
I don't need a _? _ man

I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
High on you

Terrorist in my heart
Tearin' it all apart
Terrorist in my heart
Tearin' it all apart

I love the way you feel, baby
The mornin' startin' drunk, baby
Drinking of your soul, baby
And everything I know
Digs the way your body glows

I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
High on you

I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high on you
I'm getting high

Corrupting in the air
I really need you
You got two play rides
I really love them
My we're getting high
Are we getting highback to top
Strong Girl
Pop/jones

I need a strong girl
Cause war's where I'm going
I need a war girl
Who wants to show 'em

Good people want to be
Really what they are
But if you try, you will fry
Plenty before catching fire

I need a strong girl
Who works on tension
I need a gendarme
Cause I'm after ascension

When the guns raise, hit my back
On a naked day
I know I will testify
No matter what I have to say

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Strong girl, she's like a ocean

I need an eagle
To be my scanner
Cause a liar
Can look like a winner

All the animals
Are running with the pack
I'm outside, tell you why
I don't wanna fight 'em back

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Strong girl, she's like an ocean
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Strong girl, she's like an ocean
Yeah

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Strong girl, she's like an ocean
Strong girl, she's like an ocean
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Tom Tom
Pop

Hey little one
You've got the way
I ain't doing nothin'
That's so important

I'd like to know how you deal
Oh when I worry to darken
If I can't get in your show
I'll take my tom tom and go
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

While you were mine
I got so hazy
While you passed by
I found my answer

Is this the best thing in life
The only thing I remember
If I can't get in your show
I'll take my tom tom and go

Pure love, sunshine
Our love is always fine
We are related, you know
I'll take my tom tom and go
We are related, you know
I'll take my tom tom and go
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

The sky is angry
Over this city
Birds fly like devils
Over this city

So many things of no worth
Are being shoved in my face
When all the wealth in the world
May work the faith in one girl

That's why I'm sad to say
Till there can be no hate, oh
The only one they come through
Is absolute
Youback to top
Easy Rider
Pop/jones

In the alley where have I grown
Hot night sweats our clothes
My hell is crackin' fire
That's what you inspire
Cruel highway entrance signs
People driving to their lives
Looks like a giant stream
But it's just a dream

Easy rider, easy rider
Easy rider, easy rider

Broken people all around
Old guarantees that pull you down
You need a way out, you need a ride
Cause where you are is suicide

Easy rider, easy rider
Easy rider, easy rider

Oh I see the sacred dreams
And if I'm no _? _
I'll feel real _? _
Tearing out my hair
I see fertility
In pretty girls I meet
I love my friend
Give me hands _? _

Highway in the sun
We listen to the engines run
I wanna fine myself in you
You wanna find yourself, too

Easy rider, easy rider
Easy rider, easy rider
Easy rider, easy rider
Easy rider, easy riderback to top
Power and Freedom
All my life I've been polite but
I'm afraid it's ?
I'm a man I know what I want
Gonna take some nerve to get it
When you feel alone and damned
Like you're living in your hell
You want power, you want freedom

I wanna tell that girl my story
Cause baby you might like my story
When you feel all cut off
And nobody gives you talk
You want power, you want freedom

The loneliness will craze you
Nobody cool will save you
And the system's built to waste you
You want power, freedom

One by one the lives turn over
If you don't jump your life is over
Guess now all that matters
When your spirit's getting flattened
You need power, freedom

The lineliness will craze you
And no one cool will save you
And the system wants to slave you
You want power, freedom

When you feel alone and damned
Like you're living in your hell
When you're feeling all cut off
Nobody gives you talk

And no one cool will save you
The system's built to waste you
The loneliness will craze you
Craze you, craze you, craze youback to top
Lowdown
Pop

I don't want to throw away my time
Playing games I don't respect or like
I can't give away my sovereignty
To existence with no song of me

And the hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low
There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low

I built myself a beautiful brick wall
Gets a little higher every day
_? _ ignorance inhabits me
Cause I've already chased my love away

And the hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low
There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low

Take that happy banner off the wall
I don't need to see no smiling face
All I really want's a cup of tea
To feel a warmth inside of me

And the hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low
There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low

There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm low
There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowdown
There's a hole in my heart
I'm lowback to top
Instinct
Pop

Standing on the borderline
Between joy and reason
Tending carefully my fire
Waiting for my season
I know who these people are
I know what they stand for
Corruption's built into this plan
Nothing's under the other hand

Tricks and trials await the child

Instinct keeps me running
Running like a deer
Instinct keeps me running
Running through the grinning shadows

I have seen the sludgy beach
And the poisoned river
I have met the lordly rich
They're just getting stiffer
This whole place is like a maze
Or like some medusa
Let me out I can't accept
A certain read life story

Tricks and trials await the child

Instinct keeps me running
Running like a deer
Instinct keeps me running
Running where the sorrow bless me
Instinct keeps me running
Running like a moose
Instinct keeps me running
Running to keep one chance open

Marks on walls, the common outlet
Tell the truth and always will
Marks on wall destroy the thought
Of perfect sunny civilization

Tricks and trials await the child

Instinct keeps me running
Running like a deer
Instinct keeps me running
Running through the grinning shadows
Instinct keeps me running
Running like a bear
Instinct keeps me running
Running to keep one chance open
Instinct keeps me running
Running cause I don't believe it
Instinct keeps me running
Running through the bare emotion
Instinct keeps me running
Instinct keeps me running
Running
I'm running, running, running, runningback to top
Tuff Baby
Pop

Psst, psst, hey girl
Just come here, come on, come here

I love your hair
Your pearly smile
Your icing scan
Society's vile
Insect cars
Horny men from mars
I love you, tuff baby
I love you, tuff baby

You've know the score
For a while now
Your dad don't care
Your mom's aware
Your hands are new
I wonder what they'll do
I love you, tuff baby
I love you, tuff baby

There's chaos in the old suburbs
And downtown too they got the blues
But you'll survive
With a hard glint in your eyes
I love you, tuff baby
I love you, tuff baby
I love you
I love you, tuff baby
I love you, tuff baby
I love you, tuff babyback to top
Squarehead
Pop/jones

You can kick me out of a real good jive
You can use my friendship like a doorknob
You can make me super styrofoam
You can make me feel all alone
You can stuff hamburger in my head
But I ain't gonna be no squarehead

You can tempt me with a pretty girl
You can call on me in fancy fur
You can say, just do it, everyone is
You can tell me that it's just showbiz
You can turn my life from green to red
But I ain't gonna be no squarehead

You can burn my bridges down for laughin', ha ha ha ha
You can call me a fool for crashin', woh
You can make me stare down at the floor
You can make me listen while you snore
You can do all these things that I have said
But I ain't gonna be no squarehead
Let's go!

You can make my position low as a dog
You can trick me with your social fog
You can criticize my very bag
You can call my treasures a heap of slag
But you might as well eat lunch instead
Cause I ain't gonna be no squarehead
I ain't gonna be no squarehead
I ain't gonna be no squarehead
I ain't gonna be no squarehead
No, I ain't gonna be no squarehead
No, I ain't gonna be no squarehead
No, I ain't gonna be no squarehead
No, I ain't gonna be no squarehead
I ain't gonna be no
I ain't gonna be noback to top
