all Motorhead lyrics

Deaf Forever
Stoneface dog, swirling fog, gates open on the dark night
Standing stone, skull and bone, dead witness to an unseen fight
Beat the drum, beat the drum, beat forever on the endless march
Stricken dumb, cut and run, someone is screaming and the say is dark
Sword to shield, bone and steel, rictus grin
Deaf forever to the battles din
March or croak, flame no smoke, burn forever in eternal pain
Charge and fall, bugle call, bone splinter in the driving rain
Horses scream, viking dream, drowned heroes in a lake of blood
Armored fist, severed wrist, broken spears in a sea of mind

Mother earth, mother earth, unfold you in her cold embrace
Sinking down, killing ground, worm crawling on your cold white face
Win of lose, naught to choose, all men are equal when their memory fades
No one knows, friends of foes, if Valhalla lies beyond the graveback to top
Nothing Up My Sleeve
You're playing trick babe, and that's a fact
Your magic circle ain't where its at
One moment you were here and then you disappeared
This ain't the first time that I've caught you act
Nothing up my sleeve, babe
Watch out, watch out
Magic's what you need, babe
Just like that
You know your slight of hand is messing up my life
Maybe this time babe you're gonna get it right
One moment I was there, now nist an empty chair
This ain't the first time you've shot out Mr. Lights

Saw me in half, babe, and that's quite a trick
You make me laugh babe, you make me sick
I'm gone but how you lack the spell to bring me back
This ain't the first time I've seen your magic slipback to top
Ain't My Crime
I don't believe a word, I know, you tell me lies
Just watch me flip the bird, right in your lyvin' eyes
You just can't figure out, why I'm the way I am
I'm low-life born and bred, and I don't give a damn
I've had enough, I'm stepping out of line
Ain't gonna stop me babe, you ain't worth a dime
You nearly had me fooled, wastin' my time
You might've broke my heart
And if you broke my heart
I know it ain't my crime
I'm here to tell you, was here and now I'm gone
You need a wages slave, but I sure ain't the one
I'm moving off the lot, just hire another act
I don't need what you got, that ain't where I'm at

Just show me to the door, here I go again
I seen it all before, happens now and then
No tears in your eyes, sure ain't none in mine
Two people in disguise, frozen in timeback to top
Watching you, watching me
I was happing you'd be here tonight
Watching him watching you
He'd better watch out too
'cos he keeps getting in my light
I think he's going overload
Don't know what you're running for
He thinks he's got you where he wants you babe
But he don't understand the power of the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw
You know me I know you
We both know what we came here fore
And he thinks he knows you
He thinks he's got you too
Gonna make him cry for sure
He's going to have to make her own way home
I don't know what he's smiling for
He thinks you're gonna keep your promise babe
But he don't understand the power of the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw
Me walking up to you
And whisper in your eager ear
You whisper back to me
And he begins to me
And he begins to see
He feels the claw is near
And so the ballet starts again
Exit stage left through the door
And we begin the horizontal dance
And he begins to know just what the claw is for
The claw, the claw, the claw, the claw
The claw, the claw, the claw, the claw
You know just what the claw is for
(3 times)
You know what my claw is forback to top
Mean Machine
Midnight, runaway, know you're running scared
Bright lights, big city, nobody seems to care
Open you eyes who's there, who there
Open your eyes, nightmare
Unclean, fever dream on the high side, in the Mean Machine
Black bomber in the night, can you handle the pain
Better call the FBI, better change you name
Open your eyes, oh no, oh no
Open your eyes, creepshow
Unclean, fever dream, on the wild side in the Mean Machine
Unclean, fever dream, take a ride Mean Machine
Wet dream, bad scene, we don't care where you been
On the screen, movie queen, things ain't always
What they seem, stay clean, crazy dream
Off the high side in the Mean Machineback to top
Built For Speed
You know the rules, you all know the game
Try and do what's right
And I swear I can't complain
If I die tonight
But I don't think its in the stars
For me to go that way
I'll be here for along, long time babe
I'm here to stay
I was born to rock-n-roll, everything I need
I was born with the hammer down
I was built for speed
Bet your life it ain't no easy money
But you won't hear me bitch
Spent a long time wrecked and funny
I've got the year itch
See me running all around the world
Trying to make some time
A million miles, a million girls
A million real good times

Don't you listen to a single word
Against rock-n-roll
The new religion, the electric church
The only way to go
I don't give a good goddam
My lifes been alright
I'm going crazy out of my mind
Every single nightback to top
Riding With The Driver
Iron child out of volcano forge, metal scream and thrash
Red steel in the driving wheel, hear the pistons clash
Dragon breathin' big black smoke, howlin' up the pracks
I'm ridin' on the thunderchief, spit in the Devil's eye
No force on earth can stop me now
Like to see'em try
Hey, hey, ridin' with the Driver
Juggernaut comin' down the line, hear the banshee cry
Engineer like to lose his mind, glory in his eye
Too fast to live this way, too young to die

Hold tight, feel the drivers bite, hear the whistle moon
Engineer rockin' to the left and right, vibratin' in my bones
Once the locomotive steals your soul, you got cagey jones

I'm ridin' on the thunderchief, spit in the Devil's eye
No force on earth can hurst me now, kiss your ass, goodbye
My, my, ridin' with the Driverback to top
Doctor Rock
All right, all right
I hope you son of bitches see the light
You again, you again
I know you've got a mentalage of ten
Listen up, listen up
I wouldn't swap you for a thousand bucks
Come on, you're the one
I think I'm going to switch you lazer on
I've got the medicine you need
I've got the power, I've got the speed
I'll found out how to stop your clock
We sure ain't talking Doctor Spock
Hear me talking, Doctor Rock
Lay down, turn around
Here come the sister gonna strip you down
Shut up, breathe in
Lets have the address of you next kin
Chin up, shoulders back
You've got a body like a marshall stack
Keep still, take your pill
Or I'm gonna make you really ill

Next, please, next please
Try to separate those cowardly knees
X-ray, you've gotta pay
The only chance you've ever got of getting away
Here we are, what's the sear
I don't like anything I've seen so far
Pay me, pay me
I ain't no doctor of philosophyback to top
I am the one, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequies and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic sacred whore
I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician, and i decide your fate
I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I hold you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the god of war, and I will cut you down
