Right Next Door To Hell

     I'll take a nicotine, caffeine, sugar fix
     Jesus don't ya git tired of turnin' tricks
     But when your innocence dies
     You'll find the blues
     Seems all our heroes were born to lose
     Just walkin' through time
     You believe this heat
     Another empty house another dead end street
     Gonna rest my bones an sit for a spell
     This side of heaven this close to hell

     Right next door to hell
     Why don't you write a letter to me
     I said I'm right next door to hell
     An so many eyes are on me
     Right next door to hell
     I got nowhere else to be
     Right next door to hell
     Feels like the walls are closing in on me

     My mama never really said much to me
     She was much too young and scared ta be
     Hell "Freud" might say that's what I need
     But all I really ever get is greed
     An most my friends they feel the same
     Hell we don't even have ourselves to blame
     But times are hard and thrills are cheaper
     As your arms get shorter
     Your pockets get deeper

     Right next door to hell
     Why don't you write a letter to me
     I said I'm right next door to hell
     An so many eyes are on me
     Right next door to hell
     I never thought this is where I'd be
     Right next door to hell
     Thinkin' time'll stand still for me

     Fuck you
     Bitch

     Not bad kids just stupid ones
     Yeah thought we'd own the world
     An gettin' used was havin' fun
     I said we're not sad kids just lucid ones yeah
     Flowin' through life not collectin' anyone
     So much out there
     Still so much to see
     Time's too much to handle
     Time's too much for me
     It drives me up the walls
     Drives me out of my mind
     Can you tell me what this means... huh?
 

Dust N' Bones

     He lost his mind today
     He left it out back on the highway
     On "65"

     She loved him yesterday
     Yesterday's over
     I said okay
     That's all right
     Time moves on
     That's the way
     We live an hope to see the next day
     That's all right

     Sometimes these things they are so easy
     Sometimes these things they are so cold
     Sometimes these things just seem to rip you right in two
     Oh no man don't let 'em get ta you

     She loved him yesterday
     He laid her sister
     She said O.K.
     An that's all right
     Buried her things today
     Way back out deep
     Behind the driveway
     And that's all right

     Sometimes these women are so easy
     Sometimes these women are so cold
     Sometimes these women seem to rip you right in two
     Only if you let 'em get to you

     Ya get out on your own
     And you/take all that you own
     And you/forget about your home
     And then you're/just fuckin' gone

     There's no logic here today
     Do as you got to, go your own way
     I said that's right
     Time's short your life's your own
     And in the end
     We are just
     Dust n' bones
 

Live And Let Die

     When you were young
     And your heart was an open book
     You used to say live and let live
     You know you did
     You know you did
     You know you did
     But if this ever changin' world
     In which we live in
     Makes you give in and cry
     Say live and let die
     Live and let die

     What does it matter to ya
     When ya got a job to do
     Ya got to do it well
     You got to give the other fella hell

     You used to say live and let live
     You know you did
     You know you did
     You know you did
     But if this ever changin' world
     In which we live in
     Makes you give in and cry
     Say live and let die
     Live and let die
 

Don't Cry (ORIGINAL)

     Talk to me softly
     There's something in your eyes
     Don't hang your head in sorrow
     And please don't cry
     I know how you feel inside I've
     I've been there before
     Somethin's changin' inside you
     And don't you know

     Don't you cry tonight
     I still love you baby
     Don't you cry tonight
     Don't you cry tonight
     There's a heaven above you baby
     And don't you cry tonight

     Give me a whisper
     And give me a sigh
     Give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye
     Don't you take it so hard now
     And please don't take it so bad
     I'll still be thinkin' of you
     And the times we had... baby

     And don't you cry tonight
     Don't you cry tonight
     Don't you cry tonight
     There's a heaven above you baby
     And don't you cry tonight

     And please remember that I never lied
     And please remember
     How I felt inside now honey
     You gotta make it your own way
     But you'll be alright now sugar
     You'll feel better tomorrow
     Come the morning light now baby

     And don't you cry tonight
     An don't you cry tonight
     An don't you cry tonight
     There's a heaven above you baby
     And don't you cry
     Don't you ever cry
     Don't you cry tonight
     Baby maybe someday
     Don't you cry
     Don't you ever cry
     Don't you cry
     Tonight
 

Perfect Crime

     Kickin' back in the shadows
     Got no need for the light
     Who's sorry now old timer
     Look at how you've spent your life
     Scroungin' for change
     To put some money in your pocket
     My how scratch does burn
     Laughin' at the suckers as you pissed it away

     But I got the time and I got the muscle
     I got the need to lay it all on the line
     I ain't afraid of your smoke screen hustle
     It's a perfect crime
     Goddamn it it's a perfect crime
     Motherfucker it's a perfect crime
     I said it's perfect

     Keep the demons down
     And drag the skeletons out
     I got a blind man followin' me in chains
     I said he's fun to watch
     When the world has stopped
     An I think he's got somethin' to say
     "You wanna fuck with me, don't fuck with me
     'Cause I'm what you'll be so don't fuck with me
     If you had better sense
     You'd just step aside from the bad side of me
     Don't fuck wit'da bad side o' me
     Stay away from the bad side o' me
     Don't fuck wit'da bad side"

     T MINUS 1:09 AND COUNTING

     Ostracized but that's all right
     I was thinkin' about somethin' myself

     1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

     Call on everybody who's got last rites
     Said it's better if you locked 'em away
     Runnin' through the visons at the speed of light
     Won't ya let me be
     Motherfucker just let me be
     Goddamn it better let me be
     Don't ya know ya better let me be...

     Perfect crime
     Goddamn it it's a perfect crime
     Motherfucker it's a perfect crime
     Don't cha know
     It's a perfect crime
 

You Ain't The First

     1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3
     (whistle)
     2, 3, 1 andů
     I tried so hard just to get through to you
     But your head's so far from the realness of truth
     Was it just a come on in the dark
     Wasn't meant to last long
     I think you've worn your welcome honey
     I'll just see you along as I sing you this song

     1, 2, 3, 1
     Time can pass slowly and things always change
     You day's been numbered and I've read your last page
     You was just a temporary lover honey you ain't the first
     Lots of others came before you woman said but you been the worst
     Sa' you been the worst

     So goodbye to you girl
     So long, farewell
     I can't hear you cryin'
     Your jivin's been hell
     So look for me walkin'
     Down your street at night
     I'll be in with another
     Deep down inside
     Deep down inside
 

Bad Obsession

     I can't stop thinkin'
     Thinking 'bout sinkin'
     Sinkin' down into my bed
     I call my mother
     She's just a cunt now
     She said I'm sick in the head
     She said you ain't special
     So who you foolin'
     Don't try ta give me a line
     But I can't stop thinkin' 'bout seein' ya one more time

     Always tried to take it
     Take it down into my vein

     He's just another
     He said I'm sick in the brain
     He said you ain't special
     So who you foolin'

     PUNK!!
 

Back Off Bitch

     Oh yeah!
     Oh baby, pretty baby
     Oh honey, you let me down honey
     I ain't playin' childhood games no more
     I said it's time for me to even the score
     So stake your claim, your claim to fame
     But baby call another name
     When you feel the fire, and taste the flame

     Back off, back off bitch
     Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
     You better back off, back off bitch
     Face of an angel with the love of a witch
     Back off, back off bitch
     Back off, back off bitch

     Makin' love
     Cheap heartbreaker, broken backed,
     Nasty ballbreaker, stay out of my bed, outta my head
     If it's lovin' you, I'm better off dead

     Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
     You better back off, back off bitch
     Face of an angel with the love of a witch
     Back off, back off bitch

     Life lipped, I said you're off the hinge
     Tellin' lies of such fame and glory
     I don't even wanna hear your story

     Back off, back off bitch
     Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch
     You better back off, back off bitch
     Face of an angel with the love of a witch
     Back off, back off bitch

     HEY WHA'D'YA THINK HE'S TRYIN' TO SAY THERE, ANYWAY?
     I THINK IT'S SOMETHING EACH PERSON'S S'POSED TO TAKE
     IN THEIR OWN SPECIAL WAY
     Fucking bitch
 

Double Talkin' Jive

     Found a head and an arm in da garbage can
     Don't know why I'm here
     Livin' on the run for oh so long
     I gotta go collect
     Double talkin' jive
     Get the money motherfucker
     'Cause I got no more patience
     Double talkin'
     -I got (lies)-
     No more patience man

     Back in town an'a all new friends
     They sayin' how ya been?
     Fucked up and outta place
     That's how I felt back then
     Double talkin' jive
     Get the money motherfucker
     'Cause I got no more patience
     Double talkin'
     -I got (lies)-
     No more patience man
     You dig what I'm sayin'?!
 

November Rain

     When I look into your eyes
     I can see a love restrained
     But darlin' when I hold you
     Don't you know I feel the same

     'Cause nothin' lasts forever
     And we both know hearts can change
     And it's hard to hold a candle
     In the cold November rain

     We've been through this such a long long time
     Just tryin' to kill the pain

     But lovers always come and lovers always go
     An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
     Walking away

     If we could take the time to lay it on the line
     I could rest my head just knowin' that you were mine
     All mine
     So if you want to love me then darlin' don't refrain
     Or I'll just end up walkin' in the cold November rain

     Do you need some time... on your own
     Do you need some time... all alone
     Everybody needs some time... on their own
     Don't you know you need some time... all alone

     I know it's hard to keep an open heart
     When even friends seem out to harm you
     But if you could heal a broken heart
     Wouldn't time be out to charm you

     Sometimes I need some time... on my own
     Sometimes I need some time... all alone
     Everybody needs some time... on their own
     Don't you know you need some time... all alone

     And when your fears subside and shadows still remain, oh yeah
     I know that you can love me when there's no one left to blame
     So never mind the darkness we still can find a way
     'Cause nothin' lasts forever even cold November rain

     You're not the only one
     You're not the only one
     Don't ya think that you need somebody
     Don't ya think that you need someone
     Everybody needs somebody
     You're not the only one
     You're not the only one

     Don't ya think that you need somebody
     Don't ya think that you need someone
     Everybody needs somebody
     You're not the only one
     You're not the only one

     Don't ya think that you need somebody
     Don't ya think that you need someone
     Everybody needs somebody
     You're not the only one
     You're not the only one

     Don't ya think that you need somebody
     Don't ya think that you need someone
     Everybody needs somebody
 

The Garden

     You know you're all alone
     Your friends they aren't at home
     Everybody's gone to the garden
     As you look into the trees
     You can look but you don't see
     The flowers seem to tease you at the garden
     Everybody's there, but you don't seem  to care
     What's it with you man, and this garden

     TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
     A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
     IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
     BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
     ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
     ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,
     FEEL HER FLOWERS AS THEY WRAP AROUND,
     BUT ONLY SMART BOYS DO WITHOUT

     You can find it all inside
     No need to wrestle with your pride
     No you ain't losin' your mind
     You're just in the garden
     They can lead you to yourself
     Or you can throw it on the shelf
     But you know you can look inside
     For the garden

     I WASN'T REALLY SCARED
     LOST MY VIRGINITY THERE,
     TO A GYPSY WITH BLOND HAIR
     BUT NOW NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE
     LIKE A MOUSE INSIDE A MAZE
     WANDERING ROUND 4 DAZE
     WITH A SMILE UPON MY FACE,
      I NEVER WANNA LEAVE THIS PLACE
     ONLY POOR BOYS TAKE A CHANCE,
     ON THE GARDEN'S SONG AND DANCE,
     FEEL HER FLOWERS AS THEY WRAP AROUND,
     BUT ONLY SMART BOYS DO WITHOUT
     TURNED INTO MY WORST PHOBIA,
     IT'S A CRAZY MAN'S UTOPIA
     IF YOU'RE LOST NO ONE CAN SHOW YA,
     BUT IT SURE WAS GLAD TO KNOW YA
     BYE BYE
     SO LONG, BYE BYE
     IT'S GLAD TO KNOW YA
     BYE BYE
     BYE BYE
     AW...SO LONG
 

Garden Of Eden

     It's a critical solution
     And the east coast got the blues
     It's a mass of confusion
     Like the lies they sell to you

     You got a glass jawed toothache
     Of a mental disease
     An they be runnin' round back
     See 'em line up on their knees
     'Cause the kiss ass sycophants
     Throwin' penance at your feet
     When they got nowhere to go
     Watch 'em come in off the streets
     While they're bangin' out front
     Inside their slammin' to the cruch
     Go on an throw me to the lions
     And the whole damn screamin' bunch
     'Cause the pissed-off rip-offs
     'R' everywhere you turn
     Tell me how a generation's ever s'posed to learn
     This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
     It's not a problem you can stop
     It's rock n' roll

     I read it on a wall
     It went straight to my head
     It said "Dance to the tension of a world on edge"
     We got racial violence and who'll cast the first stone
     And sex is used anyway it can be
     Sometimes when I look out
     It's hard to see the day
     It's a feelin' you can have it
     It's not mine to take away

     Lost in the garden of Eden
     Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
     And there's no one's gonna believe this
     But we're lost in the garden of Eden
     This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
     It's not a problem you can stop
     It's rock n' roll
     Suck on that

     Looking through this point of view
     There's no way I'm gonna fit in
     Don't ya tell me what my eyes see
     Don't ya tell me who to believe in
     I ain't superstitious
     But I know when somethin's wrong
     I've been draggin' my heels with a bitch called hope
     Let the undercurrent drag me along

     Lost in the garden of Eden
     Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
     And there's no one's gonna believe this
     But we're lost in the garden of Eden

     Most organized religions make a mockery of humanity
     Our governments are dangerous and out of control
     The garden of Eden is just another graveyard
     Said if they had someone to buy it
     Said I'm sure they'd sell my soul

     This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
     It's not a problem you can stop
     It's rock n' roll
     Lost in the garden of Eden
     (An we ain't talkin' about no poison apple
     or some missin' rib, ya hear)
     Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
     And there's no one's gonna believe this
     Said we're lost in the garden of Eden
     This fire is burnin' and it's out of control
     It's not a problem you can stop
     It's rock n' roll
 

Don't Damn Me

     Don't damn me when I speak a piece of my mind
     'Cause silence isn't golden when I'm holding it inside
     'Cause I've been where I have been
     An I've seen what I have seen
     I put the pen to the paper
     'Cause it's all a part of me

     Be it a song or casual conversation
     To hold my tongue speaks of quiet reservations
     Your words once heard they can place you in a faction
     My words may disturb but at least there's a reaction

     Sometimes I wanna kill
     Sometimes I wanna die
     Sometimes I wanna destroy
     Sometimes I wanna cry
     Sometimes I could get even
     Sometimes I could give up
     Sometimes I could give
     Sometimes I never give a fuck

     It's only for a while
     I hope you understand
     I never wanted this to happen
     Didn't want to be a man
     So I hid inside my world
     I took what I could find
     I cried when I was lonely
     I fell down when I was blind

     But don't damn me when I speak a piece of my mind
     'Cause silence isn't golden when I'm holding it inside
     'Cause I've been where I have been
     An I've seen what I have seen
     I put the pen to the paper
     'Cause it's all a part of me

     How can I ever satisfy you
     An how can I ever make you see
     That, deep inside we're all somebody
     An it don't matter who you wanna be
     But now I gotta smile
     I hope you comprehend
     For this man can say it happened
     'Cause this child has been condemned
     So I stepped into your world I kicked you in the mind
     An I'm the only witness to the nature of my crime

     But look at what we've done to the innocent and young
     Whoa listen to who's talking 'cause we're not the only ones
     The trash collected by the eyes and dumped into the brain
     Said it tears into our conscious thoughts you tell me who's to blame

     I know you don't wanna hear me cryin'
     An I know you don't wanna hear me deny
     That your satisfaction lies in your ILLUSIONS
     But your delusions are yours and not mine
     We take for granted we know the whole story
     We judge a book by its cover and read what we want
     Between selected lines

     Don't hail me
     An don't idolize the ink
     Or I've failed in my intentions can you find the missing link
     Your only validation is living your own life
     Vicarious existence is a fucking waste of time
     So I send this song to the offended
     I said what I meant and I've never pretended
     As so many others do intending just to please
     If I damned your point of view could you turn the other cheek

     Don't damn me when I speak a piece of my mind
     'Cause silence isn't golden when I'm holding it inside
     'Cause I've been where I have been
     An I've seen what I have seen
     I put the pen to the paper
     'Cause it's all a part of me
     Don't damn me
     I said don't damn me
     I said don't hail me
     Don't damn me
 

Bad Apples

     Diamonds and fast cars
     Money to burn
     I got my head in the clouds
     I got these thoughts to churn
     Got my feet in the sand
     I got a house on the hill
     I got a headache like a mother
     Twice the price of my thrills
     An it's a cold day it's a continental drift
     I said this traffic is hell
     Can you give me a lift
     An I'll try to paint a story
     Got your pictures to tell
     Yeah you got to make a living
     With what you bring yourself to sell

     I got some genuine
     Imitation
     Bad Apples
     Free sample
     For your peace o' mind
     Only $9.95
     I got my camera back from customs
     Got my law fees up to date
     Hell they musta seen me comin'
     Ain't this life so fuckin' great

     When the shit hit the fan
     It was all I could stand
     Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
     My body's breathing while it can
     But what I don't understand is that
     My world ain't gettin' no brighter
     If I could touch the sky
     Well I would float on by
     While everybody's talkin'
     Hell I'm just another guy
     If it were up to me
     I'd say just leave me be
     Why let one bad apple
     Spoil the whole damn bunch

     Gold and caviar
     Now why'nt you pour my apathy
     I'd have all my bases covered
     If I could teach my hands to see
     But now we're down in the deep end
     Where they'd love to watch you drown
     I said your laundry could use washing
     We'll hang it up all over town
     I said Hollywood's like a dryer
     An we're down on Sunset Strip
     An you'll be suckin' down the Clorox
     'Til your life's all nice and crisp

     When the shit hit the fan
     It was all I could stand
     Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
     My body's breathing while it can
     But what I don't understand is that
     My world ain't gettin' no brighter
     If I could touch the sky
     Well I would float on by
     While everybody's talkin'
     Hell I'm just another guy
     If it were up to me
     I'd say just leave me be
     Why let one bad apple
     Spoil the whole damn bunch

     When the shit hit the fan
     It was all I could stand
     Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer
     My body's breathing while it can
     But what I don't understand is that
     My world ain't gettin' no brighter
     If I could touch the sky
     Well I would float on by
     While everybody's talkin'
     Hell I'm just another guy
     If it were up to me
     I'd say just leave me be
     Why let one bad apple
     Spoil the whole damn bunch
     Why let one bad apple
     Spoil the whole damn bunch
     BOY!!
 

Dead Horse

     Sick of this life
     Not that you'd care
     I'm not the only one with whom these feelings I share

     Nobody understands, quite why we're here
     We're searchin' for answers
     That never appear

     But maybe if I looked real hard I'd
     I'd see your tryin' too
     To understand this life that we're all goin' through
     (Then when she said she was gonna like
     wreck my car... I didn't know what to do)

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
     An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
     I'd like to think that our love's worth a tad more
     It may sound funny but you'd think by now
     I'd be smilin'
     I guess some things never change
     Never change

     I met an old cowboy
     I saw the look in his eyes
     Somethin' tells me he's been here before
     'Cause experience makes you wise
     I was only a small child
     When the thought first came to me
     That I'm a son of a gun and the gun of a son
     That brought back the devil in me

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
     An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
     I'd like to think that our love's worth a tad more
     It may sound funny but you'd think by now
     I'd be smilin'
     I guess some things never change
     Never change

     I ain't quite what you'd call an old soul
     Still wet behind the ears
     I been around this track a couple o' times
     But now the dust is startin' to clear
     Oh yeah!!!

     Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse
     An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down
     I'd like to think that our love's worth a tad more
     It may sound funny but you'd think by now
     I'd be smilin'
     Ooh yeah, I'd be smilin'
     No way I'd be smilin'
     Ooh smilin'

     Sick of this life
     Not that you'd care
     I'm not the only one
     With whom these feelings I share
 

Coma

     Hey you caught me in a coma
     And I don't think I wanna
     Ever come back to this... world again
     Kinda like it in a coma
     'Cause no one's ever gonna
     Oh, make me come back to this... world again
     Now I feel as if I'm floating away
     I can't feel all the pressure and I like it this way
     But my body's callin'
     My body's callin'
     Won't ya come back to this... world again
     Suspended deep in a sea of black
     I've got the light at the end
     I've got the bones on the mast
     Well I've gone sailin', I've gone sailin'
     I could leave so easily
     While friends are calling back to me
     I said they're
     They're leaving it all up to me
     When all I needed was clarity
     And someone to tell me
     WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON
     GODDAMN IT!

     Slippin' farther an farther away
     It's a miracle how long we can stay
     In a world our minds created
     In a world that's full of shit

     HELP ME
     HELP ME
     HELP ME
     HELP ME
     BASTARD

     Please understand me
     I'm climbin' through the wreackage
     Of all my twisted dreams
     But this cheap investigation just
     can't stifle all my screams
     And I'm waitin' at the crossroads
     Waiting for you
     Waiting for you
     WHERE ARE YOU?

     No one's gonna bother me anymore
     No one's gonna mess with my head no more
     I can't understand what all the fightin's for
     But it's so nice here down off the shore
     I wish you could see this 'cause there's nothing to see
     It's peaceful here and it's fine with me
     Not like the world where I used to live
     I NEVER REALLY WANTED TO LIVE

     ZAP HIM AGAIN
     ZAP THE SON OF A BITCH AGAIN

     Ya live your life like it's a coma
     So won't you tell me why we'd wanna
     With all the reasons you give it's
     It's kinda hard to believe
     But who am I to tell you that I've seen
     Any reason why you should stay
     Maybe we'd be better off
     Without you anyway
     You got a one way ticket
     On your last chance ride
     Gotta one way ticket
     To your suicide
     Gotta one way ticket
     An there's no way out alive
     An all this crass communication
     That has left you in the cold
     Isn't much for consolation
     When you feel so weak and old
     But is home is where the heart is
     Then there's stories to be told
     No you don't need a doctor
     No one else can heal your soul

     Got your mind in submission
     Got your life on the line
     But nobody pulled the trigger
     They just stepped aside
     They be down by the water
     While you watch 'em waving goodbye
     They be callin' in the morning
     They be hangin' on the phone
     They be waiting for an answer
     But you know nobody's home
     And when the bell's stopped ringing
     It was nobody's fault but your own
     There were always ample warnings
     There were always subtle signs
     And you would have seen it comin'
     But we gave you too much time
     And when you said that no one's listening
     Why'd your best friend drop a dime
     Sometimes we get so tired of waiting
     For a way to spend our time
     An "It's so easy" to be social
     "It's so easy" to be cool
     Yeah it's easy to be hungry
     When you ain't got shit to lose
     And I wish that I could help you
     With what you hope to find
     But I'm still out here waiting
     Watching reruns of my life
     When you reach the point of breaking
     Know it's gonna take some time
     To heal the broken memories
     That another man would need
     Just to survive
