all Social Distortion lyrics



Dear Lover
Yeah, loving
Over and over again now
It ain't nothing girl
Till you've felt the pain
Up against the wall
Why does love always have to hurt?
Your scratches run across my back
And then a tear
Dear lover
I can't take the pain no more
Dear lover
I pick my heart up from the floor
Dear lover
I can't believe it's come to this
Dear lover
Give me one last
Painful kiss

There ain't nothin'
In this world for free now
So how high of a price
Will you pay
Hear the screams so loud
Wake up to the broken glass
It's a scene from bad to worse
And many more tears

Dear lover
I can't take the pain no more
Dear lover
I pick my heart up from the floor
Dear lover
I can't believe it's come to this
Dear lover
Give me one last
Painful kiss

Dear lover
I can't take the pain no more
Dear lover
I pick my heart up from the floor
Dear lover
I can't believe it's come to this
Dear lover
Give me one last
Painful kiss
One last kiss [x3]back to top
Don't Drag Me Down
children are taught to hate,
parents just couldnt wait,
sum r rich and sum r poor,
others will just suffer more,
have u ever been ashamed,
and felt society try to keep you down,
i begin to watch things change,
and see them turn around,
turn around,
theyll try to keep it real,
turn around x2
dont drag me down

ignorance is like a gun in hand,
reach out to the promised land,
you history books r full of lies,
media blizt gonna dry your eyes,
have you ever been afraid,
and felt society try to keep you down,
i begin to watch things change,
and see them turn around

turn around,
thell try to keep it real,
turn around x 2
dont drag me down

ignorance like a gun in hand,
reach out to the promise land,
you history books
are full of lies,
media blizt gonna dry your eyes,
your 18,
wanna be a man,
your grandaddys in the klu klux klan,
taking two steps forward,
and four steps back,
GONNA GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND PAINT IT BLACK!

theyll try to keep you down,
turn around x2

I'm heading down
A lonely highway
I'm running down
A one-way street
Well, I wanna know
Are you going my way?
Is there some place quiet
Where we can meet
And friends they come
And friends they go
But you were always by my side
And where it all ends
Well, I don't know
Don't cry no more, just hold on tight

There was a time
When I was desperate
Living in a town
Without a name
And when things got
So dark and desolate
You taught me how
To hide my shame

And kings and queens
And millionaires
May never know
What I have known
And thank the stars
I'm the lucky one
Thanks for the lessons
That I have been shown

I feel rich
I feel power
And security
And when I'm weak
You are strong
Once in a lifetime, twice
In eternity and guess what?
Nothing else
Matters anyway

I feel rich
I feel power
And security
And when I'm weak
You are strong
Once in a lifetime, twice
In eternity and guess what?
Nothing else
Matters anywayback to top
I Was Wrong
Oh, when I was young
I was so full of fear
I hid behind anger, held back the tears
It was me against the world
I was sure that I'd win
But the world fought back, punished me for my sins
I felt so alone
So insecure
I blamed you instead, made sure I was heard
And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I wouldn't hear what they had to say
I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong

And I think about my loves
Well, I've had a few
Well, I'm sorry that I hurt them
Did I hurt you too?
I took what I wanted
Put my heart on the shelf
But how can you love me when you don't love yourself?
It was me against the world
I was sure that I'd win
The world fought back, punished me for my sins
And they tried to warn me
Of my evil ways
But I couldn't hear what they had to say

I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong
I was wrong, yeah
I was wrong

I grew up fast
And I grew up hard
Something was wrong from the very start
I was fighting everybody
I was fighting everything
But the only one that I hurt was me
I got society's blood running down my face
Somebody help me get outta this place
How could someone's bad luck last so long?
Until I realized that I was wrong

I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
I realize now that I was wrong
I was wrong
Self destruction's got me again
I was wrong
The only moment that I was me
I was wrongback to top
Through These Eyes
Through these eyes I've seen love and I've seen hate
I've seen the violence and the tears
Through these eyes
I got my schooling on the streets
I've seen the things in life
You don't wanna see

Through these eyes I've seen the shape of things to come
And I've watched them all fall apart
Through these eyes
I've seen the broken homes, they cry
I've seen the poor man's face
As he stands in line

And though my heart has made me weary
On a road less travelled on
Through the heart it hurts so dearly
And the pain it lingers on

Through these eyes, I've looked the devil in the face
And I've seen God's holy grace
Through these eyes
I've tried to walk the straighter line
I found myself again
But nearly lost my mind

And though my heart has made me weary
On a road less travelled on
Through the heart it hurts so dearly
And the pain it lingers on, yeah

And though my heart has made me weary
On a road less travelled on
Through the heart it hurts so dearly
And the pain it lingers on
And though my heart has made me weary
On a road less travelled on
Through the heart it hurts so dearly
And the pain it lingers on, yeahback to top
Down on the World Again
This ain't the way it's supposed to be, there's a dark cloud
Following me
I'm disillusioned
And I'm down on the world again
There's movies going on in my head
And all I can see is the color red
I'm relentless
And I'm down on the world again
Give me tomorrow's broken dreams now
I'm feeling like a loaded gun

There's a world of guilt written on my face and I feel ashamed for the human race
I've been forsaken
And I'm down on the world again

Well, I feel so alone in this crowd, my thoughts of despair
Are getting loud
I'm disrespected
And I'm down on the world again
Love and tolerance have abandoned me and I feel the gloom hovering over me
I'm resentful
And I'm down on the world again

Give me tomorrow's broken dreams now
I'm feeling like a loaded gun
Give me tomorrow's holy schemes now, so hopeless
When there's no place left to run

Well, I tried to play for the higher stakes
You won't let me forget my mistakes
I'm unforgiven
And I'm down on the world again
This ain't the way it's supposed to be, there's a dark cloud
Following me
I'm distorted
And I'm down on the world againback to top
When the Angels Sing
At last we meet again, dear God
Hear the angels sing
The funerals are nicer when we know you're there
When the angels sing
Sometimes
I try so hard
To understand
The things you do
I like to question you
When it all comes down
Hear the angels sing
Stand up strong
Feel the pain
When the angels sing
Love
And death
Don't mean a thing
Till the angels sing

The prisoners pray when they're on to death row
When the angels sing
The junky
Cries for love but it's all run out
When the angels sing
The sins
Of the world
And it's cold on the streets
And you're all alone
And the tears
They start to fall
When it all comes down
Hear the angels sing

Stand up strong
Feel the pain
When the angels sing
Love
And death
Don't mean a thing
Till the angels sing
Little
By little
Day by day
I watch the children play
Cause life
And death
Don't mean a thing
Till the angels sing

When the angel of death comes to looking for me
Hear the angels sing
I hope I was everything I was supposed to be
When the angels sing
There's gotta be a heaven
Cause I've already done
My time in hell
And a little
Baby's born when it all comes down
Hear the angels sing

Stand up strong
Feel the pain
When the angels sing
Love
And death
Don't mean a thing
Till the angels sing
Little
By little
Day by day
I watch the children play
Cause life
And death
Don't mean a thing

Gotta Know the Rules
Spent my whole life, yeah
Looking for something
What it was, I'm not really sure
I looked for happiness
But only found sorrow
Then I realized how to unlock that door, yeah, yeah, yeah
So you think you've got it figured out
It don't come easy
Maybe just for fools
Some say life
Is a struggle now
It's a game now
Just gotta know the rules
Gotta know the rules

Loads of people go
Through life thinking
Take what you can and leave the weak behind
Never stop to think
What can you give now
Too afraid to learn what you might find, yeah, yeah, yeah

So you think you've got it figured out
It don't come easy
Maybe just for fools
Some say life
Is a struggle now
It's a game now
Just gotta know the rules
Gotta know the rules

I spent my whole life, yeah
Doing things my way
Doing unto others knowing it's wrong
When's the last time you
Looked in the mirror?
When's the last time you
Liked what you saw, yeah, yeah, yeah

So you think you've got it figured out
It don't come easy
Maybe just for fools
Some say life
Is a struggle now
It's a game now
Just gotta know the rules

Crown of Thorns
Pretty much been alone now
For almost five years
Well, I could always find a way
To hide these bitter tears
Still I am waiting
And wishing somehow
I wish I knew then
What I know now
It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before
Gotta bad reputation
For playing with love
Gonna play again now
And beat the odds above
And still I am waiting
And wishing somehow
I wish I knew then
What I know now
It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before

Are you tired of being alone?
Or have you fallen out of love?
Do you care enough about yourself?
I have worn you're crown of thorns

[x2] It's no bed of roses
It ain't no crown of thorns
Better than lonely
I've been there before [x2]back to top
Pleasure Seeker
Social Distortion - Pleasure Seaker




Well, here I come
I'm on a run
Who wants to fight temptation, that's no fun
C'mon and play the games
Don't you feel no shame
That's what Eve said to Adam
Before she came
You can smile now, cry later on
You know that it might be wrong, but it feels so good
Like you know it would
There's damnation and disgrace
And guilt rears its ugly face, yet you beg for more
Just a little more

Stand in line
Don't you lose your mind
Try like me to seek your pleasure three at a time
There's souls for sale
You're gonna burn in Hell
And if tomorrow never comes
It's just as well

You can smile now cry later on
You know
That it must be wrong but it feels so good
Like you know it would
There's damnation and disgrace
And guilt rears its ugly face, yet you beg for more
Just a little more

Uah

Feel the pain
I feel it too
Have your hedonistic ways, got the best of you
Playing the games
Don't feel no shame
That's what Eve said to Adam
Before she came

You can smile now, cry later on
You know
That it's definitely wrong but it feels so good
Like you know it would
There's damnation and disgrace
And guilt rears its ugly face, yet you beg for more
Just a little more
Come on and beg for more
Just a little moreback to top
Down Here (With the Rest of Us)
You work hard now
To put the food on the table
You're working for the men
Who don't even know your name
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
You might lose now
Your beautiful children
Your happy home, yeah
And your beautiful wife
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us

You'll suffer hard now
As you bury
Your loved ones
You'll suffer hard now
When you lose your best friend
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes
And I know how you feel

No ones immune now
To a world of problems
No ones exempt now
From a world of pain
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us

I try hard now
To do the right thing
Yet I wonder
Why I still do what's wrong
That's the way that it goes
When you're down here with the rest of us
That's the way that it goes
And I know how you feelback to top
