Disturbing the Peace Lyrics

Submitted by level Sathanas
1. God Bless Video (3:30)
Lets take a plane and go somewhere exotic
To play with a non-descript song
We'll shoot all the crotch shots for 12 year old hopefuls
To make you a real man my son

Some cheap kid from Birmingham
Blessed with an accent
That pours like the darkest brown ale
Just one more puppet, piss elegant marionette
He's just a fast buck for sale

Don't you know that God blessed video
We know that God blessed video

Break out the cameras that re-shape my face
And get someone to carve up my hair
If you can't beat them, you might as well join 'em
And be glad to say you were there
2. Mercy (4:22)
Sister moon and brother sun
Shining down on my India
Spreading your light across the ground
Guiding the executioner
Great white warrior, you are the lonely hunter
Killing the prince of India
Killing the king in Africa
Tiger burning brightly crying tears of fire

Mercy, mercy, mercy

Chand bahen ar suray bhy
Shining down on my India
Chamakta hey mana barat ka upar
Guiding the lonely preditor

Tiger burning brightly crying tears of fire

Mercy, mercy, mercy
3. Will You Be Home Tonight (5:03)
He's just a kid and loves to ride
Taking the freeway, driving blind
Just like a loaded gun, he pushes down the hammer
Hard to fire

In the embrace of his gasoline lover
Her sleek body wraps all around
Turns on the radio, lights up his cigarette
Takes the lights up, dims them down
A silent Geisha, the perfect seducer
Knows someone is waiting too long

Oh will you be home tonight
Oh please say you'll be there

He's just a kid who loves to drive
To get out of sight out of his mind
He pushed the hammer down
And shot just like a bullet from a gun

Drunk on the fix of the powerful kick
As he shoots up from zero to speed
Has one more drink of the cold liquid courage
To keep on the level he needs
Soothed by the sound of the wheels on the ground
But he won't hear the tires when they scream...

Oh will you be home tonight
Oh will you be home tonight

Oh will you be home tonight
Oh will you be home tonight
4. Wire And Wood (3:29)
Down the street a snake of leather sliding off to war,
Out to fight the battle with the boys upon the boards,
Up against the disciples with their backs up to the walls,
They don't care, 'cos they can take the blast
They're just out to bust their balls!

In the arena the battle begins
They're eye to eye face to face...

They come back to feel the smack from the wire and the wood,
Pack that slap, don't take no crap from the wire and the wood

Crushed against the barricades
And worked up to a rage
How hot it gets, and how the leather sweats,
As they reach to claw the stage

In an hour or two,
The battle will be done
No one leaving in defeat
Both sides having won
Blinded by the silence calling them back home
5. Desert Diamond (4:20)
Lie in Egyptian sands, Ethiopian overlord
Royal mountains stand
Guardian of the Kings
Sleep in your dusty sea
Silent shining desert diamond, sleep eternally

Eyes of a blinded lion, saw the age of the Pharaoh come,
And return to sand,
Gold and silver gone stripped from your virgin stone
Still you stand so strong and silent

Frozen by the sun

Desert diamond
Stone leonine
Desert diamond
Stone leonine

Silent shining
Desert giant
Ethiopian sons-diamond
6. Stripper (3:53)
A dark and crowded room
Warm beer that's stale
Nobody seems to care, there's more for sale
She walks on the stage
Strokes her hips, shakes her mane
Her sweet cheap perfume, reminds them that
She's why they came

Oh she's the stripper, she'll strip your soul
Oh she's the stripper, she'll eat you whole

Assembled in Mexico, dark Spanish eyes,
She'll tell you where to go, if you get wise
She's your fantasy, but she won't go too far
Oh she has to be, in league with the guy at the bar
7. Painted Lover (3:24)
Street wise, smooth thighs, dress for your pleasure
Your old man says, "Young man, stand and deliver"
She just wants that hard stash, hot from your pocket,
She don't need your credit card
So shove it, if you've got it

Sailing on her waterbed
Side by side and head to head

Painted love, painted love, painted lover
Painted love, painted love, painted lover

Pin striped city tyke has a soft underbelly,
He's transfixed by the heel clicks
And he ducks down the alley
Silken legs stiletto spurred
Pulls you in to make you hers
8. Lighter Shade Of Green (0:46)
9. Sons And Lovers (3:37)
One more hotel it's 12 o'clock we're checking out
Still confused and slow to move to get on the bus,
The driver keeps that Memphis smile for his good old boys
He's loaded them up and heads them out in the void.

We drive -- pass those trailers and trucks
We'll make good time with some kind of luck

Another victory, for sons and lovers
You gave us the power, you gave the power

It's not just one more show we know it's gotta be right
We work the songs then kiss the road a warm good night
10. Skyfire (3:55)
Just one more of those 82 nights
We were all cowboys ready to ride
Fire the gun, turn your eyes to the sea
Through that night, riding your trigger with me

Your local station gives out the news
"The sky is burning, in Malibu"

As the beach turns an ominous green
Bathed in light from the shape in the sky
We all tanned, in a new kind of sun
Something's wrong and we're getting ready to run

Your local station knows what to say
It's just a fuel burn so its OK
Please hold the phone calls there's no more news
It's just a skyfire in Malibu

Pros to cons from diplomats-liars
Words designed to tranquilize-fighters

Your local station screams out the news
The sky is burning in Malibu
Please hold the phone calls
There is no need for alarm
It's just a skyfire, skyfire burning in Malibu
11. Breaking The Heart Of The City (4:58)
In the London rain the sun called "go west",
The American loves the way you speak English
And they watched you growing as their son for so long
How they long to embrace you, tell you, `This is home'

Beloved foreigner this your America
Wants you to stay forever
Beloved foreigner this your America
Wants you to stay forever

As you look down on the New York skyline
There's someone waiting for you among the crowd
He wants to be just like you, he wants to be a friend to you,

Reach inside, and just be part of you
He saved the photographs, he read the magazines
Making you part of the city

Beloved foreigner someone to crucify
Breaking the heart of the city

In the London rain the sun called "Go West"
The Americans love to hear you speak English
He took your autograph
Spit out the magazine
