Track Name: Love thy Neighbour
Love Thy Neighbour

Your friends just paid another call
They left a crowbar in the hall
And a message that you never read
Somebody wants you dead
And on this happy day
For about the thousandth time
Your stupid senseless worthless world
Comes crashing into mine

Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true
Love thy neighbour - He loves you

You don't have to go and face
The world outsidde your door
You always got the choice to run like hell
Or call the law
And when your clothes are worn to shreds
From living on your knees
The State will give you just enough
To keep your off the streets

Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true
Love thy neighbour - He loves you

Your friends just paid another call
They left a crowbar in the hall
Lucky that you weren't around
It's just too bad I was
And on this happy day
For about the thousandth time
Your stupid senseless worthless world
Comes crashing into mine

Love thy neighbour - It's gotta be true
Love thy neighbour - He loves you

Track Name: Flame
FLAME

I burn so bad
When I touch that flame
I've only got
Myself to blame
Can't let it go
Can't let it be

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

I gotta look
And I gotta touch
I go too far
And I want too much
But I've been places
You'll never see

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

Could have had it all
But I could not stay
Somethin' always told me
Gotta get away
It broke my heart
But at least I'm free

Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me
Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me
Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me
Ain’t that the difference
Between you and me

Track Name: What Happens Now?
What Happens Now?

Don't know if I'll live or die
Standin' on the top floor, starin' down the stairwell
Fly for a minute, then say goodbye
Do I laugh or do I cry?

I gotta ask you
But I don’t know how
You gotta tell me
What happens now?

You drive so fast that I can't breathe
And I can't stay and I can't leave
And I can't say what's goin' on
If it's right or if it's wrong

I gotta ask you
But I don’t know how
You gotta tell me
What happens now?


Makin' conversation, staring at the floor
I wanna go back where I was before
Then I looked out the window at the wind and rain
Too late to jump this train

gotta ask you
But I don’t know how
You gotta tell me
What happens now?
What happens now ?
What happens now?

Track Name: Ready for Anything
Ready For Anything

Deep and meaningless
Baby be mine
Let’s take it easy
Let’s waste some time
Let’s taste the bitter end
Before we even start
C’mon baby break my spine
You won’t break my heart

I’m ready for anything
That you’re thinking of
I’m ready for anything
Don’t call it love

No coming back for more
No second time
I’m gonna rip out all the wires that go
From your world into mine
Been stabbed in the back so many times
See right through to my bones
Don’t expect no sympathy
No happy home

I’m ready for anything
That you’re thinking of
I’m ready for anything
Don’t call it love

Deep and meaningless
Baby be mine
Let’s take it easy
Let’s waste some time
Let’s taste the bitter end
Before we even start
C’mon baby break my spine
You won’t break my heart

I’m ready for anything
That you’re thinking of
I’m ready for anything
Don’t call it love

Track Name: O.K. U.K.
OK UK


You gave me less when I needed more
Asked for help, you said here’s the door
You had me working a six day week
Just to live where they shoot you in the street
Is this the way it’s supposed to be?
Is this the life you promised me?

OK UK
I’m moving on

Born in a green and pleasant land
I held the future in my hand
At times I try to figure out
Exactly how it came about
Everything I ever tried
Damn near got me crucified

OK UK
I’m moving on

Did what I was supposed to do
Walked the walk when you asked me to
I didn’t steal, I didn’t cheat
But you wanted the shoes from off of my feet
Breaks my heart to say goodbye
To the place I thought I’d live and die
Goodbye friends and family
Look what my country’s done for me

OK UK
I’m moving on

Track Name: I let the devil in
I Let the Devil in

I was doing alright, feeling fine
Doing my thing and taking my time
In came the Devil with his bag of tricks
Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix

Help me God, I let the devil in

What’s yours is yours, what’s mine is mine
I didn’t think about that when I crossed the line
In came the devil, he was dressed in black
Now he’s written his name right across my back

Help me God, I let the devil in

You was temptation
Yeah you was temptation
You was tempation
From head to tail

I was doing alright, feeling fine
Doing my thing and taking my time
In came the Devil with his bag of tricks
Now there’s a pain in my heart that nothing can fix

Help me God, I let the devil in

Been doing this thing so many years
All I ever get is blood and tears
But if the devil came to my door
I’d still come crawling back for more

Help me God, I let the devil in

Track Name: White Trash Special
White Trash Special

I don't know what you did
I don't know what you said
But if you dont shut your tiny mouth
She'll break your tiny head
I don't know what to do
But I can't watch this any more
When this train pulls in
I'm gonna jump right out the door

I took a ride, I took a ride
I took a ride, I took a ride
I took a ride, I took a ride
I took a ride on the white trash special

I don't speak your language
And I can't read your mind
And I can't start to figure out
Where you guys draw the line
But there's thing that I'm sure of
Any fool can see
Theres a goddamn bunch of you
And there's only one of me

I took a ride, I took a ride
I took a ride on the white trash special

I don't know what you did
I don't know what you said
But if you dont shut your tiny mouth
She'll break your tiny head
I didn't lift a finger
I pretended not to see
Who's gonna save my hide
When the devil comes for me?

I took a ride, I took a ride
I took a ride on the white trash special

Track Name: Party Animal
Party Animal

You’re a party animal
And you always will be
You don’t look for trouble
But it always finds you
With your double standards
And your tunnel vision
It’s your delusion
It’s your religion

You will always see what you wanna see
But the party’s over for you and me

Hear no evil
See no wrong
It’s a different story
It’s the same old song
When you ride the lightning
You don’t catch the thunder
You can drop your standards
Till they’re six feet under

You will always see what you wanna see
But the party’s over for you and me

You’re a party animal
You’re a party vegetable
You don’t look for trouble
But it always finds you
And there are no secrets
Around this scene
Cause wherever you go
Someone’s been

You will always see what you wanna see
And you will always be what you wanna be
But the party’s over for you and me, party boy
Yeah the party’s over for you and me
The party’s over for you and me
Forever.

Track Name: Bitch like you
Bitch like you

I know your story
I know your game
But this is different darling
It's not the same
So get back in the sewer
Where you came from
You might find some fool
Who wants to belong

To a bitch like you

She looked straight through me
Like I wasn't even there
She never knew me
She didn't care
But you better move on
Cause here I am
Or is that too difficult
To understand?

For a bitch like you

You're worth so little
But you want so much
Well I got something
You couldn't even touch
You're out of your depth
You're out of your mind
If you think for a minute
I'd leave it behind

For a bitch like you
A bitch like you
A bitch like you
A bitch like you….

Track Name: Black Box
Black Box

Got myself a magic box and I blessed it with my name
Thought that it would save my life but I fucked up just the same
My box, my box, my precious box – tell me what I did
Why my hand is soaked in blood each time I lift the lid

But you’re mine, mine –
My black box

I wish that I could make that box disintegrate
A smashed up mess of rotten wood and twisted metal plate
You’re everything I wanted, everything I know
Wish I’d never seen you but I’ll never let you go

Cause you’re mine, mine -
My black box
My black box
My black box
My black box
My black box

Got myself a magic box and I blessed it with my name
Thought that it would save my life but I fucked up just the same
You’re everything I wanted, everything I know
Wish I’d never seen you but I’ll never let you go

Cause you’re mine, mine
Mine, mine
Mine, mine
My black box

Track Name: I Gotta Go
I Gotta Go

You can take it easy, you can take it hard, you can take it any way it comes
But if you don't wanna bite the bullet baby, don't play with loaded guns
I don't need no fortune teller to say how this could end
Cause I been ripped open too many times to go through this again

Don’t wanna be here
Don’t wanna know
Don’t wanna talk it over
I gotta go

Don't wanna stick around and wait for the shit to hit the fan
Or sit and listen to a thousand things that I'll never understand
Didn't want to be your master, didn't want to be your slave
All I ever wanted was to see some respect before I go to my grave

Don’t wanna be here
Don’t wanna know
Don’t wanna talk it over
I gotta go

You can take it easy, you can take it hard, you can take it any way it comes
But if you don't wanna bite the bullet baby, don't play with loaded guns
I don't need no fortune teller to say how this could end
Cause I been ripped open too many times to go through this again

Don’t wanna be here
Don’t wanna know
Don’t wanna talk it over
I gotta go
