Black Planet
(In the western sky)
(My kingdom come)

So still so dark all over Europe
And I ride down the highway 101
By the side of the ocean headed for sunset
For the kingdom come
For the

Black
Black planet
Black
Black world
Black world

Run around in the radiation
Run around in the acid rain
On a
Black
Black planet
Black planet hanging over the highway
Out of my mindís eye
Out of the memory
Black world out of my mind

Still so dark all over Europe
And the rainbow rises here
In the western sky
The kill to show for
At the end of the great white pier
I see a

Black
Black planet
Black
Black world

Run around in the radiation

Walk Away
And in the summer when the clouds show through
I might go the same way too if
You and I could talk together
Well what am I supposed to do with
You and I would walk together
Then with always close around and
Now you gaze toward the doorway
When the weather comes falling down

And when the rain comes down
Would you choose to walk or stay
Would you choose to walk
Would you choose to stay
Would you
Walk walk walk walk walk away
(away) (away) away away (away) away
away away walk away
Would you choose to walk away

And when the rain comes down
Would you choose to walk or stay
Would you choose to walk
Would you choose to stay
Would you
Walk walk walk walk walk away

Though when the day is nearly
Through I might see the same way too if
You would name the things
That bring you down on me so I could say itís
Not quite true if you donít really
Know or understand the circumstance
Behind then I might clear your
Mind and you wonít have to go so

And when the rain comes down
Would you choose to walk or stay
Would you choose to walk
Would you choose to stay
Would you
Walk walk walk walk walk away
(away) (away) away away (away) away
away away walk away
Would you choose to walk awayback to top
No Time to Cry
It's just a feeling
I get sometimes
A feeling
Sometimes
And I get frightened
Just like you
I get frightened too
but it's...

(no, no, no) No time for heartache
(no, no, no) No time to run and hide
(no, no, no) No time for breaking down
(no, no, no) No time to cry

Sometimes in the world as is you've
Got to shake the hand that feeds you
It's just like Adam says
It's not so hard to understand
It's just like always coming down on
Just like Jesus never came and
What did you expect to find
It's just like always here again it's...

(no, no, no) No time for heartache
(no, no, no) No time to run and hide
(no, no, no) No time for breaking down
(no, no, no) No time to cry

Everything will be alright
Everything will turn out fine
Some nights I still can't sleep
And the voices pass with time
And I keep
[repeat]
No time for tears
No time to run and hide
No time to be afraid of fear
I keep no time to cry

(no, no, no) No time for heartache
(no, no, no) No time to run and hide
(no, no, no) No time for breaking down
(no, no, no) No time to cryback to top
A Rock and a Hard Place
And she came to look for me
Sold me name and innocence
Took my key
And told me to follow her
Down from igor with her bangles and her reference
One from the church from the valley of the
Well she wanted a haven and a place to hide
So I gave her an alibi took her inside but

A rock and a hard place await for for me
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Everything I ever did right or wrong
Hid out of sight where I belong, belong

And I didnít have the heart to tell her why
And there wasnít a part of me that
Didnít want to say goodbye but

Cause and effect go hand in hand with
The devil may care but I donít mind and I
Thought sheíd never quite understand so I
Left her there that night but will she
Find me? I donít think so, no
When you go, you go alone
And Iím gone...
far away
far away
far away
far away

And I didnít have the heart to tell her why
And there wasnít a part of me that
Didnít want to say goodbye but...back to top
First and Last and Always
See a body and a dream of the dead days
A following lost and blind
Living far from here
Tomorrow is hard to find
And it seems like twenty five years of
Promises and give me more
Scenes of a hand-me-down in
Dresses heard before

First and last and always, 'til the end of time
First and last and always, Mine

Maybe itís not so easy
Maybe itís a way to long
Say, say youíll be by me
When the evidence comes along

First and last and always, My calling, my time
First and last and always, Mine

My calling
My time

See a place and a dream of the dead days
A following lost and blind
Cross my heart with silver
Hereís the key behind
Seems like twenty five years of
Ever after ever more more more
Seems I wore this face for you
Far too long before

First and last and always, My calling, my time
First and last and always, Mine

First and last and always, 'til the end of time
First and last and always, Mine

Possession
Carrion child,
Prey for me,play your
Wild card, see the house come down around your
Head, home to me, so much dreaming
Some say I'm growing cold and
Taking over
Nothing, cuts, two ways.....
Possession - taking over
Stand these pictures on your shelf
And wear your heart upon my sleeve,
Wear a dress that you can see through,
See yourself inside,
Iíll be your imagination,
Tear apart what you believe,
Make a mess of your conviction,
Take away my pride and leave,
Nothing, but the debris,
Cuts, two ways,
Carrion child,
Prey for me, play your
Wild card, see the house come down around your
Possession - taking over.....
Possession, shake shake shake shake shake shake,
Possession - taking over.....
Somehow the fact takes over, and the fiction coming through,
Somehow I do my crying breaking down for you,
This way doubt takes over, contradiction coming through,
This way I do my lying, making up and making out for you.....
Possession - taking over
Child (nothing)
Prey for me (but the debris)
Play your wild card (cuts two ways)
Some say Iím growing cold and

Head (nothing)
Home to me (but the debris)
So much dreaming, see the house come down around your
Possession, shake shake shake shake shake shake shake

Nine While Nine
And it's passing strange
And I'm waiting for the train
Caught up on this line again
And it's passing slowly
Killing time but it's
Better than living in what will come and I've
Still got some of your letters with me and I
Thought sometimes or I read too much
And I think you know let's
Drink to the dead lying under the water and the
Cost of the blood on the driven snow and the
Lipstick on my cigarettes
Frost upon the window pane
Nine while nine and I'm waiting
For the train.....

She said do you remember a time when angels
Do you remember a time when fear
In the days when I was stronger
In the days when you were here she said
When days had no beginning
While days had no end when
Shadows grew no longer I
Knew no other friend but you
Were wild
You were wild.....

Frost upon these cigarettes
Lipstick on the window pane and I've
Lost all sense of the world outside but I
Can't forget so I call your name and I'm
Looking for a life for me and I'm
Looking for a life for you and I'm
Talking to myself again and it's
So damn cold it's just not true and I'm
Walking through the rain
Trying to hold on waiting for the train and I'm
Only looking for what you want but it's
Lonely here and I think you knew and I'm
And I'm waiting
And I wait in vain
Nine while nine and I'm waiting
For the train.....

Frost upon these cigarettes
Lipstick on the window pane and I've
Lost all sense of the world outside but I

Logic
Watch them do
The falling over
Watch them do
The standing still
Nothing but the knife to live for
One life, all I need
Give me one good reason
Give me more S....

(Women)
And the women come and go
(Talk)
Talking about me like they know
(Men)
Bought and sold
And the world keeps turning
People cold
And people burning
Nothing but the knife to live for
One life, all I need
Give me one good reason
Give me more S....

Nothing but the knife to live for
One life, all I need
Give me one good reason
Give me more S.... (Amphetamine Logic)
Hit up
Steel in hand
Lit up
Like candles
Burning
Like Catherine wheels
Turning
On
Nothing but the knife to live for
One life, all I need
Give me one good reason
Give me more S.... (Amphetmine Logic)back to top
Some Kind of Stranger
And yes I believe in what we had
But words got in the way
And only yesterday
As I was leaving
Lord knows I've tried to say but I've
Heard a million conversations
Going where they've been before
Seen the way that careful lingers
Undecided at the door

And all I know for sure
All I know for real
Is knowing doesn't mean so much
When placed against the feeling
The heat inside
When bodies meet
When fingers touch

All my words are secondhand and
Useless in the face of this
Rationale and rhyme and reason
Pale beside a single kiss
And I've heard so many things I
Fail to understand at all
I'd settle anytime for
Unknown footsteps in the hall outside

And all I know for sure
All I know for real
Is knowing doesn't mean so much
When placed against the feeling
The heat inside
When bodies meet
When fingers touch

Because the world is cruel and
Promises are broken
Don't try to tell me
Anything don't try to tell me
You'll be true to me you know the
Real truth is never spoken
And I know the world is cold but
If you hold on tight to what you
Find you might not mind too much though
Even this must pass away and
Memories may last for years but
Names are just for souvenirs
Some kind of angel let me
Look into your eyes
Don't give me whys and wherefores
Reason or surprise
I don't care for words that don't belong
And I don't care what you're called
Tell me later if at all
I can wait a long long time
Before I hear another love song

Come here I think you're beautiful
My door is open wide
Some kind of angel come inside

Come here I think you're beautiful
I think you're beautiful beautiful
Some kind of angel come inside

Come here I think you're beautiful
I think you're beautiful
Some kind of angel come inside

Come here I think you're beautiful
My door is open wide
Some kind of stranger come inside

Come here I think you're beautiful
I think you're beautiful beautiful
Some kind of stranger come inside

Come here I think you're beautiful
I think you're beautiful
Some kind of stranger come insideback to top
