Burn
(from "natural born killers" soundtrack)

this world rejects me
this world threw me away
this world never gave me a chance
this world's gonna have to pay

i don't believe in your institutions
i did what you wanted me to
like cancer in the system
i've got a little suprise for you

something inside of me has opened up its eyes
why did you put it there did you not realize
this thing inside of me it screams the loudest sound
sometimes i think i could

burn

i look down there where you're standing
flock of sheep out on display
saw your lives burned up around you
i can take it all away

something inside of me has opened up its eyes
why did you put it there did you not realize
this thing inside of me it screams the loudest sound
sometimes i think i could

i'm gonna burn this whole world down

i never was a part of you burn

i am the agent i never was a part of you burn
i am corruption i never was a part of you burn
i am the angel i never was a part of you burn
of your destruction i never was a part of you burn

i am subversion i never was a part of you burn
secret desire i never was a part of you burn
i am your future i never was a part of you burn
swallow down all that fire

Dead Souls
(from "the crow" soundtrack)

Someone take these dreams away
That point me to another day
A duel of personalities
That stretch all true reality

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

When figures from the past stand tall
And mocking voices ring the hall
Imperialistic house of prayer
Conquistadores who took their share

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

Calling me, Calling me
Calling me, Calling me

They keep calling me
Keep on calling me
They keep calling me
Keep on calling me

Live In Me
(instrumental, no lyrics)back to top
Maybe Just Once
i can't believe
that what i feel
is finally happening to me
make it hurt
and point a finger
at my insecurites
well i guess i just don't understand
about those complexities in your mind
and i guess i just don't understand
why this world seems so unkind

maybe
maybe just one
i get just what's coming
maybe
maybe just once
i get what's coming to me

so once again
the way you feel
you'll never ever stay the same
and i'm to blame
i wonder just who made
the rules up for this game
well i guess i just don't understand
about what you want and what you need
and i guess i just don't understand
about why this is how it has to be

maybe
maybe just one
i get just what's coming
maybe
maybe just once
i get what's coming to me

so go around
you say those thousand things
you think you have to say
look at me
and tell me love's not such
a hard word word anyway
well how can you can count on me
i thought you realized for sure
and how can you just believe
i thought i deserved a little more

maybe
maybe just once
i get what's coming
maybe
maybe just once
i get what's coming to me

oh god
what's coming
oh god
what's coming to meback to top
Now I'm Nothing
i smashed myself to pieces
i am gonna f**k myself up
i'm sifting through the ashes
oh what i have become
i gave myself away now i'm nothing
i let it slip away now i'm nothing
all that i can do is break myself in two
i f**ked it all away now i'm nothing
wave wave wave wave goodbye
wave wave wave wave goodbye

Purest Feeling
purest feeling
purest feeling

well i think i'm gonna push it
as far as it will go
give in to desire
only you will know

so tell me all your secrets
i'll stick it in your head
i wish i could remember
everything she said

purest feeling
purest feeling
purest feeling
purest feeling

well she could be a saviour
with everything she does
or some kind of punishment
for people just like us

i don't really believe she understands
what's happening to me
the sooner that she gets it
the better it will be

purest feeling
purest feeling
purest feeling
purest feeling

i have got to figure it out
i just want to know
i can't live with it

purest feeling

The Perfect Drug
(from "lost highway" soundtrack)

i got my head but my head is unravelling
cant keep control can't keep track of where it's travelling
i got my heart but my heart's no good
you're the only one that's understood

i come along but i dont know where you're taking me
i shouldn't go but you're wrenching dragging shaking me
turn off the sun pull the stars from the sky
the more i give to you the more i die

and i want you

you are the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug

you make me hard when i'm all soft inside
i see the truth when i'm all stupid-eyed
the arrow goes straight through my heart
without you everything just falls apart

my blood just wants to say hello to you
my fears want to get inside of you
my soul is so afraid to realize
how very little good is left of me

and i want you

you are the perfect drug
the perfect drug
the perfect drug

take me with you

without you everything just falls apart

it's not as much fun to pick up the pieces

Supernaut
Practially every one of the top 40 records being played on
every radio station in the United States is a communication to the
children to take a trip, to cop out, to groove. The psychedelic
jackets on the record albums have their own hidden symbols and
messages as well as the lyrics to all the top rock songs and they all
sing the same refrain: It's fun to take a trip, put acid in your veins.

I want to reach out and touch the
I want to touch the sun
but I don't want to fly
I'm gonna climb up every mountain of the moon
And find a distant ?man a-waving his spoon?

Supernaut
Supernaut

I've crossed the ocean, ?turned every bend?
I found the ?crossing near? a golden rainbow's end
I've been through magic and through life's reality
I've lived a thousand years it never bothered me

Bothered me
Supernaut
Bothered me
Supernaut

They all sing the same refrain:
It's fun to take a trip, put acid in your veins.

25 seconds
20 seconds and counting
15 seconds, guidence is internal
12, 11, 10, 9
ignition sequence starts
6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Got no religion, don't need no friends
Got all I want and I got no need to pretend
Don't try to reach me, 'cause I'd tear up your mind
I've seen the future and I leave it all behind

Twist
well you've got me working so hard lately
working my hands until they bleed
if i was twice the man i could be
i'd still be half of what you need
still you lead me and i follow
the small of your back up to your chin
over to the tip of your switchblade
as you pull it out as you stick it in

(twist twist twist) it can go a little deeper
(twist twist twist) i'm wear
t) it can go a little deeper

(twist twist twist) i'm wearing these chains
(twist twist twist) you make it hurt real good
(twist twist twist) (but?) i love the pain

(twist twist twist) it can go a little deeper
(twist twist twist) i'm wearing these chains
(twist twist twist) you make it hurt real good
(twist twist twist) i love the pain
(twist twist twist)
(twist twist twist)
(twist twist twist)
(twist twist twist)

Turn It On

Quietly says:

is this on? oh [QUESTIONABLE]
* i'm so tired i can't get to sleep
* and the squeaking of the bed
* is right in time with the song that's
* repeating in my head
its uncomforting to rember how you used to like a good f**k
every once in awhile
* i just want(ed) you to know (that)
* 'when i do it, i only think of you'

* = Quoted from end of RINGFINGER (the extra lyrics printed at the end
of the song in Pretty Hate Machine)
