Strange Highways Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Jesus, Mary, & The Holy Ghost (4:13)
Prime time nursery rhyme did you see the teacher sister black and white what she's gonna to do
They say eye for eye tooth for tooth but don't hurt your brother cross road overload
Oh I I testify they just showed me Mary she was stoned stoned danger zone there was nothing in her eyes
And then there there in the air nailed to the cross was Jesus cross road overload
Now I lay me down to sleep pray my soul to keep away from the holy spirit holy ghost they're hiding in the dark
Oh nightmare electric chair you might not get to heaven bad boys shout for joy watch him to cry
Prime time nursery rhyme love just needs religion cross road overload
2. Firehead (4:07)
Who's that angry man I see is he coming closer
Well I'll just make believe that I've never been afraid
Crackle crackle you're all dead feel the heat from firehead
>From spooky stories that he's read they put pictures on his body
Living out a fantasy to be the last one left alive hah
Crackle crackle you're all dead feel the heat from firehead
He's lost the instruction no control suicide fever he won't be much older I know won't go away
What's that smoke that I can see rising from the ashes
Well it seems that there will always be someone just like you
Crackle crackle and you're all dead feel the heat from firehead firehead firehead
3. Strange Highways (6:54)
It's a crazy world we live in and I'm leaving it today for another institution we crazy people play
Every time I climb the mountain and it turned into a hill I promised me that I'd move on and I will
I I good for nothing going nowhere so they say hey someone give me blessings for they say that I have sinned
That when I crawl inside myself and ride into the wind on strange highways on strange highways
Hey you I want your number don't even wonder we do things our way here
Questions these are forbidden we got no answers believe us anyway
So here is my confession it's the only broken rule sometimes I crawl inside of me
Where I can be the fool on strange highways on strange highways oh
You can see the other side and you shall come over you can't leave the other side if you say I will
Everytime I climb the mountain and it turned into a hill well I promised me I'd disappear and now I know I will
So someone give me blessings for the times you say I've sinned
So I can crawl inside myself and ride into the wind on strange highways on strange highways
Questions they're forbidden hey you what's your number oh we've got no answers
Don't you even wonder on strange highways aaah
4. Hollywood Black (5:09)
Came to the sunset scene to find out who's inside of me some lies I've never seen
But this one lies on the silver screen in between real and dream like a scream
Hollywood black I'm caught in the middle Hollywood black
Same story different eyes here's where the hero never never dies
Can't you tell that all the wishes you've made have filled up the well
Hollywood black caught in the middle Hollywood black yeah
Oh Hollywood black right in the middle too late to little
Back to the street again or was that yesterday another yesterday's gone gone
Back in the jungle running with the animals howling at the sign of the spotlight oh
Those dreams are made of glass you throw just one stone and then there goes your last window
Can't you tell that every wish that you made filled up the well
Hollywood black caught in the middle Hollywood black
Hollywood black right in the middle yeah Hollywood black
Hollywood black caught in the middle too late to little
And only fools come back 'cause Hollywood's black
5. Evilution (5:37)
Good night we're closing again come back we're open tomorrow
We've finished today I'm just staying away we know what's good for the brain
Oh plastic dreams and fast machines pushing it to the limit
Girls and boys who think that noise is music in the air
Twisted felon stay awhile here's your invitation dirty rags and body bags evilution
Hello we're open once more come in you need no appointment
We're thinking in time that you'll move down the line and represent the business in hell well well
Tell her hope is gone but you carry on we can set the soul free all is lost so what's it costs to listen anyway
The world upstairs where no one cares is just about to crumble see it through we'll burn for you evilution company
Oh neon names play neon games showing it to the public I hate you and you hate me and everybody smiles
So money talks and no one walks but everybody's crawling golden rags and body bags evilution
Hello good night it's me I'm open again come back come in good bye we're closed
6. Pain (4:13)
Give me a choice between pleasure and pain I choose pain
Another day without a heartbeat how can your heart beat if they've taken it away
For the first time just don't think about it take the water and wash your face with pain
You can take away the power your finest hour it's when you laugh in their faces
For the first time just forget about it take a hammer and pound yourself with pain aaah
Bury my bones on the moon if they never should find me it would be too soon
Give me a choice between power and pain I choose pain
Oh bury my bones on moon if they never should find me it would be too soon
For the first time just forget about take the water and wash your face with pain pain
Oh just forget about pain forget about the pain pain pain pain pain pain
7. One Foot In The Grave (4:02)
Here we go again must be delirious can't close my eyes sleep is just a drug
This must be serious this must be serious does this go on and on forever
Sometimes in the dark I feel invincible I wonder why
I hear voices out of shadows and shadows never lie
Helter skelter now give me shelter use the children like toys
Eat your lover then find an another there be good little boys boys will be boys
I got two hands to hold you two arms around you the master and the slave
Two eyes to watch you two hands to help you put one foot in the grave
Here we go again must be delirious can't close my eyes no sleep is just a drug
This must be serious this must be serious
Helter skelter now give me shelter my brain is twisting again
I could be dreaming this no I'm screaming this no more no
I got two hands to hold you two arms around you the master and the slave
Two eyes to watch you two hands to help you put one foot in the grave
8. Give Her The Gun (6:00)
She heard this song before daddy's at the door just to say I love you
Please please don't let him in is it all beginning again tonight somebody make it right
I say give her the gun look at him run away
Give her the gun before the next one comes along and doesn't pay
He dragged into the cold momma sold her soul for one more ride to heaven
Please someone let him in is it all beginning again tonight can anyone make it right
I say give him the gun look at her run away
Oh give him the gun before the next one comes along and doesn't pay
Simply unforgivable destruction of the heart does anybody tell
Make yourself invisible be blinded by the light we're hiding away what would they say yeah
She played this song before daddy's at the door just to say hello ah
Now in a different world is it all beginning again tonight oh I got to make it right
I say give her the gun look at him run away oh give her the gun before the next one comes along
Give her the gun look at him falling down oh give her the gun before the next one comes along
'cause it goes round and round and round and round and round and round and round
9. Blood From A Stone (4:15)
Oh you've been surprised again pulled like a leaf to the waterfall
Everybody's just pretending I thought that you'd learn by now
Oh think about it one more time what have you got when the god is gone
Clouds don't have a silver lining and all you ever get is rain
'cause you can't get blood from a stone you can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone you can't get blood from a stone
It isn't once upon a time when nobody falls and the hero flies
That victims got to fit the crime and nobody goes down with you you you
'cause you can't get blood from a stone you can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone you can't get blood from a stone no no
'cause you can't get blood from a stone you can't open the door if there's nobody home
They've taken it all so just leave me alone no you can't get blood from a stone
No blood from a stone go on and leave me alone and I know it's a shock
To learn you can't you can't you can't get blood from a rock
10. Here's To You (3:24)
Here's to you here's to me masters of the universe the curse of destiny
All for one it's one for all now you can pull the trigger as we're knocking down the wall
When you finally shoot too high the lie will always bring it down
You resurrection angels look what we found that the wheel goes around so here's to you
Come on raise the dead heads will roll cancel the infection we can purify the soul
Do the crime then write the law there's no wrong you can change it where a change you've never saw
Hey you desperation angels here we found that they all fell down so here's to me here's to you
Here's to you here's to me here's to reason oh here's to me here's to you raise the dead here's to freedom
11. Bring Down The Rain (5:45)
Did you ever believe in your dreams before were you always afraid of the dark
Is the edge of the world always in your head does the gun point straight at your heart
It used to come just when you sleep but now it's only a shout away
You always seem to find the sun but this time the sun is a fire
Bring down the rain this house is burning again put out the flame bring down the rain
You were told that the storm would just roll on by that the thunder was made in your mind
And the heat in the night was to keep you warm and the truth could be told by a liar now
You always seem to find the light but this time the light is a fire
Bring down the rain this house is burning again put down the flame bring down the rain
Shake up break up everybody make up everything's always the same
Trapped down trapped down everybody back down bring down the rain
You always seem to find the light but this time the light is a fire
Bring down the rain this house is burning again don't play the game
Bring down the rain put out the flame bring down the rain
It's the shake up break up everybody make up well it's always the same
Trapped down cracked down everybody back down won't you bring down all the rain
