Track Name: opening declaration
track one (opening declaration)
let's start from the top
with the trouble in my heart
let's start from the beginning
with the trouble that i'm in
believe me when i say
that i don't give a damn
for all the same old scenes
and other people's dreams
i want the sex i want the drugs i want the freedom right now
let's talk about the dream
that life is what you feel
wake up in the night
and find out it ain't real
spent my life trying to
make the best of everyone's shit
lights out! out tonight!
i'm smashed out of my mind
i want the sex i want the drugs i want the freedom right now
i want it all
i want the sex i want the drugs i want the freedom and i want it right about now
now
Track Name: my life
what are you gonna say about my life?
what are you gonna do about my life?
what are you gonna say to make it okay?
what do you really think about my life?
whatever will they think about my life?
whatever does it say about life today?
in the summer when i was baptised
the city held me inside
i tried to drink the water
but instead, instead i cried
what are you gonna say about my life?
what are you gonna do about my life?
what are you gonna say to make it okay?
prison of sun and bricks and concrete
spent all my money hiding from the heat
all the hot blood inside my veins
and i, i prayed, i prayed for rain
what you gonna do when you come undone
face down in the gutter, you dried and rot
hot blood if you want it try to make amends
can't believe what you did to defend it
what are you gonna say about my life?
Track Name: working at a job
working at a job
clocked in until you learn
working underneath the heel
of some rich fuck and then
swallowing shit
from 9 to 5
until your body dies
enjoy the weekend because that's all you get until you die
i just wanna be rich
i just wanna be king
i won't be satisfied
until i rule everything
i wanna go out tonite
and steal your shit
i wanna find out tonight
what's not tied down because i found that i need more and more
i wanna find out tonite what's not tied down because i found that i need more and more
Track Name: badlands
for the ones who had a notion
a notion deep inside
that living is pain to be alive
faces looking through me
no one is talking to me
i want to find my own space
and spit in its face
what a fucking waste
don't believe that love can save me
and i don't pray
not sure that i'm okay
don't believe that faith can heal
i'm sure that i can't feel
i don't think that hope is real
don't believe in nothing
don't believe in nothing
don't believe that i can rise above
the badlands that i love
i can't rise above
the bandlands that i love
i can't rise above
what's the point
hope and pray only to disappoint
Track Name: hang around
you're born, with nothing
and better off that way
soon as, you got something
someone's gonna take it away
nothing forgotten, nothing forgiven
no please, no pleas
no quarter given
not any use having us hang around
mistakes no one can live down
you can, ride on
until the break of dawn
wasted, and bent
and keep on keeping on
when the moment
when the moment is right
i'll leap into this bliss
living after midnight
not any use having us hang around
mistakes no one can live down
just a bunch of kids
staying up until dawn
wishing they were never born
never born
never born
wishing they were never born
