Mama's Boy
couldn't keep a secret
got a concrete skull
couldn't shut up you're an imbecile
you're an ugly dog there's
nothing to gain
you couldn't shut up got a
bad bad brain

couldn't hold your tongue
you were just too young
like a two year old you told
you told
you are all the same jelly
bean brain
every one's a secret nerd
every one's a closet lame

ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

don't want to work in a hot dog stand
be a busboy messenger or a doorman
it's an abstract world you're an
abstract man
abstract city don't give a damnback to top
I Am Not Afraid Of Life
i am not afraid of life
of the poor man's struggle
of the killer's knife
i am not afraid of life
of an insane rage
of the minimum wage
i am not afraid of life

i am not afraid of life
i am not afraid of life

but i see an old lady with a shopping bag
and i wonder is life a drag

i am not afraid of pain
but it hurts so bad
i feel so mad
no one see the truth
there's nothing to gain
a life goes down the drain
don't want to die at an early age

i am not afraid of life
i am not afraid of life

but i see a street crazy shivering with cold
is it a crime to be old

there's the threat of the nuclear bomb
we know it's wrong
we know it's wrong
is there a chance for peace
will the fighting ever cease
mankind's almost out of luck
a maniac could blow us up

i am not afraid of life
i am not afraid of life

but i get down on my knees and i pray
is there hope for the world todayback to top
Too Tough To Die
I am a tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tough tough guy
I tell no tales i do no lie

I am a tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tu tough tough guy
halo round my head to tough to die

main attraction in a freak side show
down in the basement where the cobwebs grow
on my last leg just gettin' by
halo round my read too tough to die

rainy days rain cool wine
I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine
hot sweat on my face
i feel like goin' out someplace

up late light my chocolate sweet
down at the gym where the muscle boys meet
i am very nice guy very sincere
in real good shape i have no fear

at the concert when the band comes on
i am in the ring where i belong
on my last leg just gettin' by
halo round my head too tough to dieback to top

Wart Hog
I shot some dope, I feel so sick
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
Drugs and bitches and junkies and fags
Artificial phonies, I hate it, hate it

Sick, sick, sick, It's the price I pay
It's a sick world, what can I say
???????
They steal, they cheat , they take, take, take

Wart, Wart hog
Wart, Wart hog
Wart, Wart hog
Wart, Wart hog

I wanna puke, I can't sit still
There's sex and drugs, it's a nightmare world
It's a sick world, sick, sick, sick
It's a hopeless life, I hate it, hate it

These drugs and lies, it's a ripoff, man
It's an outlaw life, or a renegade bash
Drugs and bitches and commies and queers
Artificial phonies, I hate it , hate it

Danger Zone
new york city is a real cool town
society really brings me down
our playground is a pharmacy
kids find trouble so easily

other countries are just as bad
the Soviets really make me mad
on the boulevard where police hide
let's steal a car for a joyride

they say you're just an awkward kid
you flipped your lid you flipped your lid
you love wine like they love cash
feel your rage spread like a rash

you flipped your lid you flipped your lid
you flipped your lid you flipped your lid
they say you're just an awkward kid
you flipped your lid you flipped your lid

all alone in the danger zone
danger zone danger zone
all alone in the danger zone
danger zone danger zoneback to top
Chasing The Night
standing here in front of the mirror
its gonna be all right tonight
feelin hot yeah I'm on fire
I'm never ever goin to tire

tonight it's gonna be alright
chasing the night
its gonna be alright
chasing the night
its gonna be alright
chasing the night

live my life as i choose
i paid the price, paid my dues
you know i need no alibi
daytime troubles fading
nights intoxicating
gonna have it all tonight
that ain't no lie

CHORUS: Tonight

Rock all night
sleep all day
it don't matter what they say
ain't never gonna change my ways
& i won't be back till Monday

feelin exasperating
excitement generating
I'm never ever gonna tire
city is overloading
the circuits are exploding
ain't comin down, no I'm too wired

CHORUS: Tonightback to top
Howling At The Moon
Sha-la-la-la
sha-la-la-la-la-la
repeat

ships are docking
planes are landing
a never ending supply

no more nargo
no more gangster
conservatives can cry

i took the law and threw it away
cause there's nothing wrong
it's just for play
theres no law, no law anymore
i want to steal from the rich &
give to the poor

sha-la-la-la
sha-la-la-la-la-la

it was glowing, glowing, glowing
glowing in the dark
it was sparkling, sparkling, sparkling
sparking in the night
i took the law & threw it away
cause there's nothing wrong
it's just for play

theres no law, no law anymore
i want to steal from the rich &
give to the poor

winter turns to summer
sadness turns to fun
keep the faith, baby
you broke the rules & won

sha-la-la-la
sha-la-la-la-la-la

keep it glowing, glowing,glowing
I'm not hurting anyone
keep it glowing, smoking, glowing
I'm howling at the moon
i took the law & threw it away
cause there's nothing wrong
it's just for play
theres no law, no law anymore
i want to steal from the rich &
give to the poor

oh baby
oh baby
oh baby
oh baby

i took the law & threw it away
cause there's nothing wrong
it's just for play

I'm smoking, baby
I'm smoking, oh baby

theres no law, no law anymore
i want to steal from the rich &
give to the poor

Daytime Dilemma (Dangers Of Love)
she came from a happy home
a very happy home
a very happy home

miss personality,
a grade 'A' student naturally
she had it all worked out

but things aren't what they seem
is this real or just a dream
and things will never ever be the same again

she came from a happy home
a very happy home
a home of happiness

miss personality, a grade 'A' student naturally
she had it all in place
but things aren't what they seem
is this real or just a dream
things will never ever be the same again

the dangers, its the dangers of love
the dangers, its the dangers of love

she came from a happy home
a very happy home
a very happy scene

she caught him with another
it turns out it was her mother
what a tragedy
can things be what they seem
is this just some crazy dream
things may never ever be the same again

the dangers, its the dangers of love
the dangers, its the dangers of love

keep telling li_ie_ies, but you did
you know you did
its coming,.its coming,.its coming

the dangers, its the dangers of love
the dangers, its the dangers of love

what went wrong she couldn't tell
but we know it all too well

the dangers, its the dangers of love
the dangers, its the dangers of loveback to top
Planet Earth 1988
the solution to peace isn't clear
the terrorist threat is a modern fear
there are no jobs for the young
they turn to crime and turn to drugs
battle ships crowd the sea
16 year olds in the army
our jails are filled to the max
discrimination against the blacks

Russians and Americans war machine
will destroy mankind's dream
they shoot their missiles in the air
they do not care, they do not care
guerrilla armies rule the street
no more Christmas or trick or treat
is this what the future will bring
i pray for peace more than anything

the solution to peace isn't clear
the terrorists threat is a modern fear
there is no future for the youth
there is no hope for the young
death destruction bombs galore
the rich are laughing at the poor
our jails are filled to the max
discrimination against the blacksback to top
Humankind
humankind, it's not fair, why should we all live in fear
humankind, it's a test, to see who's the very best
humankind, don't know why, no one cares who lives or dies
humankind, don't look at me, look at yourself, what do you see

(CHORUS)

people - always tellin'' lies, they can keep their alibi
people - knockin' at my door, how come they want more and more
people - talkin'' behind your back, most of them drive a cadilac
people - starrin'' at your clothes - I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE

(VERSE II)

humankind, it's a shame, some don't even know their name
humankind are so strange, some need to be rearranged
humankind, don't' know why, no one cares who lives or dies
humankind, don't look at me, look at yourself, what do you see

BEG. the humankind (x) during intro part

(MIDDLE)
tell me, tell me, who's to blame, for people acting this way
tell me, tell me, what's so wrong, if humans just got along
tell me, tell me, tell me please, if psychiatric help is what we need

(1ST CHORUS - 2 LINES INTO 'why oh why' humankind

Endless Vacation
i kill myself kill the pain
a suicide death a suicide game
my skull he's bleaching in the dust
my rage turns to insane lust

all depressed all alone
i drift into the danger zone
deadly spitten cobra life of crime
i want revenge i want what's mine

like takin' carrie to the high school prom
something's always goin' wrong
hair trigger temper tormented mind
deadly spitten cobra i am losin' kind

the heart is the place devils congregate
when you're raised on andiet of bickering at hate
hair trigger temper tormented mind
deadly spitten cobra i am losin' kind
