STILL NOT BLACK ENOUGH
(Lawless)

Paint a shadow on my heart
In shades of ebony
Paint the sun out of the sky
That rains over me

Black sun, rain on me
I need one, black sun
Rain on me, rain on me

Tie me to my blackness there
Where I'm ever free
Taken to the dark edges of
My wicked memories

Paint my soul in indigo, and ebony for me
No colour seen in my eyes, none in my eyes
I'm naked in my misery,
Emotions stripped to bone
I see inside the heart of me
It's still not black enough for me

No colour in the heart of me
No colour run in my veins
I hold the black to my breast
It bleeds over me
I can't go on, till I get off
For me it's still not black enough
With darkness gone, my fear is seen
My fear is real, my fear is me

SOMEBODY TO LOVE
(Darby Slick)

When the truth is found to be lies
You know the joy within you dies

Don't you want somebody to love?
Don't you need somebody to love?
Wouldn't you love somebody to love?
You Better find someone to love

Find somebody to love
Find somebody to love
Find somebody to love

When the dawn is rose, they are dead
Yes, and you're mine, you're so full of red

Your eyes, I say you eyes may look like his
Yeah, but in you head, baby
I'm afraid you don't know where it is

Tears are running
Running along down your breast
And your friends baby
They treat you like a guest

BLACK FOREVER
(Lawless)

There's red in my head
but I don't want it
The blues were swarming
there in my soul
Shadows over me and
The only colour I can paint my soul

I want black and don't fade away
I want it black forever
Inside of me, all I wanna see's
The colours in my head
I'm in black the only way
And make it black forever
Go inside and go inside and
Never come back out again

Don't colourize me
'Cause I don't want it
The ravens taken over my soul
The only thing I want is
The only way I wanna go

The reds were in my head, the blues were my soul
Swirl in my mind, never let go
Blind my eyes with a cold embrace
I'll lay my veil all across my face
Everyone I used to know
Sees me strange, sees me bold
Everthing I used to hold
Will fade away my soul

No confessions and no regrets
I'll paint the black all across my chest
Gimme darkness and gimme rest
Gimme blackness or gimme death

SCARED TO DEATH
(Lawless)

Grit your teeth and listen for the gun
Get in the runners block and kneel
And run the human race
That decadent decathalon and
Let the games begin for real
Stop scaring me- it's bedlam in paradise
Stop I can't see- nowhere I can hide
Scared to run, this monstrous
Marathon of fear

I run the races with a dark horse to win
Across a finish line of fear
I swim a sea of skin, afraid to drown in flesh
X-generations revolutions here
Scared to have sex- I don't wanna die
Scared I'll be next- I'm scared for my life
Dying to live, but there ain't no way
Outta here alive- all we're all scared there's

Nowhere to run- I'm scared to death
Nowhere to hide- scared I'll be next
Oh- stop, stop, stop, stop
Nowhere to run- I'm scared to death
Nowhere to hide- scared I'll be next
Oh- stop, stop, stop, stop

Am I a prisoner of the universe?
Is destiny fixed among the stars?
Should I cry or laugh?
All I know is that
The best time to laugh
Is any time you can
Life's one big party- thrown here by God
We all get invitations- if we want them or not
It's all truth or dare and nothing is fair, no
No no
We're all scared there's

Oh, it's the decade of fear
No way out of here, no, no, no
No, no, no - no, no, no - no, no, no
Oh scream in my ears
Oh stop what I hear, no, no, no
No, no, no - no, no, no - no, no, no

 

GOODBYE AMERICA
(Lawless)

I'm politically incorrect
and damn proud of it
I love my country
but I'm scared to death of its government
Ya believe what you read
cause it's all that they give ya
Cause all of history is written by winners
I'm engaged in a frenzy
of mass self-destruction
I feed upon your famine to fuel my corruption
I'm wholeselling hatred
and international incest
To carnivorous hyenas in a global theft fest
I've mastered the arts of death
and foreign nations genocide
And those who turn on me
commit national suicide

I'm the queen of the global dream
And I rule a declining nation
I sit and watch all the violent screams
From the throne of your desperation
I killed them all and stole their land
Enslaved the blacks and slaughtered the red man
In God we trusted and I gave birth
To would be kings to rule the earth

I have more pigs than I have tits to feed
I embrace the world's phoney leaders
And hold the sucklings to my breast
And I'd fool you all as I'd feed ya
I'll prop you up then strike you down
And lick your blood up from your ground
Humpty-fuckin-dumpty
My empire's falling down

Breakdown, goodbye America
So long the music's died
Freedom's last hero's wasted
I made you, I'll break you
Breakdown, goodbye America
It's all gone, kiss it goodbye
There on bloody bended knees where
my nation died

KEEP HOLDING ON
(Lawless)

Your sad eyes never told me
No paradise, here for the lonely
But I hold on, half a heart here in my hands
Been so long, would you know me
Who's holding you, who's gonna hold me
If you want me, then I'll be your man

And I keep holding on
Holding on till you come back to me
And I keep holding on
Holding on till you run to me
Can you take me to heaven
Show me the way cause I'm no angel
I'm lost and
Can I hold you one more time
I guess me holding you was holding you down

WIll I have your memory
Or will your memory have me
I don't know, only time
Knows if I'll ever know peace of mind
Only time knows if you're mine, if you're mine

And I keep holding on
Holding on till you come back to me
And I keep holding on
Holding on till you run to me
All I can hold is a shadow of a heart that's gone
And left me shattered
I'm lost and
Can I hold you one more time
I guess me holding you
Was holding you down
I guess me holding you
Was holding you down
I guess me holding you
Was holding you down

ROCK' N ROLL TO DEATH
(Lawless)

Thunder pounding my brains in
A six string rock and roll razor
Nobody's gonna save me
The whole world drives me crazy
I hate work, I hate school
I got a case of the rock's dead blues

Friday night I'll be raging
Midnight gonna be wasted
Friday I'm raising
Hell, I'm gonna be wasted
Time to party, raise a glass
Tell everybody to kiss my ass

Let me go- dead or rock, dead or rock
Dead or rock, dead or rock
If rock and roll dies
I'll take my last breath
Rock and roll to death

Dead or rock, dead or rock, dead or rock
Pass the bullets please, dead or rock
Find me a grave, help me dig it
If rock's dead then bury me with it

Dead or rock, dead or rock, dead or rock
Pass the bullets please, dead or rock
To death do us part to my last breath
Gimme rock or gimme death

BREATHE
(Lawless)

You don't have to hear my heart beat
All you need is to look into my eyes
And tell me I'm the one you heart needs
I'n the only one you run to in the night
Oh let me burn the words forever mine
Across your heart, across your mind

Take your hands and feel my heart beat
come and let me feel it in your eyes
All you have to do is touch me
Oh and lay your flame across my fire
Oh let me spread your wings and come inside
And take your heart and make you mine

Come and lay down your heart on me
All that I wanna feel is
Breathe in me
Lay down your heart on me
Feel you inside of me
Breathe on me
Come and take me on, take me down
Oh take me all the way
There's only one way
Only one thing I need, all I need
Take me way down
Come and lay down on me

I CAN'T
(Lawless)

I can't laugh
I can't cry
I can't see inside of me
Don't know the reason why

I ain't straight
And I ain't high
I'm the ugly in between
Can't live and I can't die

I wanna scream
And I can't win
My life's a living soundtrack
For a human horror film

I can't feel
And I can't love
My mama never showed me how
I never was enough

I can't laugh
And I can't smile
I'll sacrifice my aged elders
To show me how to die

I can't love
And I can't feel
And my mother never loved me
Deep down she hated me

I can't fuck
I can't feel
I'm one bizzare motherfucker
What the fuck's inside of me

I'll kill the beast
So to free my soul
And smash the mirrors
That won't let me go
Oh if there's a smile that ya see
It's only the clockwork orange that's in me
I curse the darkness impassioned plea
And tear the heart out and watch me bleed
I'll sacrifice my blood for free
To satisfy the vengence that's in me
And bury the mirror that's inside me

NO WAY OUT OF HERE
(Lawless)

I went away for a whole lot of days
And stripped the soul right outlaw me
Lead away in a crimson haze
The red was rain over me

There ain't no way outta here
I try to scream, I can't even speak
Why am I the only one
I can't get out and I can't go on

There ain't no way out of here
Forever red and I'm never free
Climb the wall, I can't hold on
I can't go back and I can't go on

There were faces in the dark and
In me I could not see
The mirror cracked in a million pieces
And so did I cause Johnny's me

I'll fade forever black away
I'll give all my tomorrows for just one good today
I'm numb to feel, don't know what's real
The ghost is killing me
