Submitted by level 이준기
1. United We Stand (3:04)
It was 8:45 New York time when disaster filled the sky
Death struck and the towers rocked, then we began to die
All the steel came crashing down and rose in a cloud of smoke
The world watched on CNN and stood in a state of shock
You fool, I say to the eastern man, your evil ain't heaven sent
You better run and you better hide cause you pissed off America
We ain't gonna live in fear
We're men of God and American
United we stand hand in hand
And when I touch the stars
I feel alive in the land of pride
I pledge allegiance to the flag of America
This prick on a power trip unleashed the dogs of war
You say you're a man of God but you're just the devil's whore
You fool, I say to the eastern man, your evil ain't gonna win
You better run and you better hide cause you pissed off America
We ain't gonna live in fear
We're men of God and American
United we stand hand in hand
And when I touch the stars
I feel alive in the land of pride
I pledge allegiance to the flag of America
United we stand America
United we stand America
United we stand America
United we stand America
2. Perfect Crime (4:23)
I'm sucking on a 40 with friends who just adore me
Oh how they love that old English accent
They of the black persuasion, missed out of being African
Hard to hold back that bottled up tension
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
We'll do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
Shoot to kill, can't blame that white
His mom and dad will make it right
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
Do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
No judge or jury would convict a white
Your deceptions are black and white
Broke out that golden carriage
To ride to Greenwich Village
Your turn to drive somebody said to me
Because you're of that white persuasion
You will never draw attention
Who we take down and who is left bleeding
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
We'll do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
Shoot to kill, can't blame that white
His mom and dad will make it right
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
Do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
No judge or jury would convict a white
Cause the color is black and white
[solo]
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
We'll do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
No judge or jury would convict his kind
The money and the power would make them all blind
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
Do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
Shoot to kill, can't blame that white
Mom and Dad will make it right
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
Do the evil deed, he'll fall for our sin
Shoot to kill, can't blame that white
Mom and Dad will make it right
No judge or jury would convict his kind
The money and the power would make them all blind
Hide in the color of the white man's skin
The deception - It's the perfect crime
3. End Of The World (5:05)
There was anger and violence, fear and pain
The world was in battle with Mr. Insane
The psychotic leader felt no shame
Killing his people for monetary gain
The act of a madman Hitler before
Lights the sky with nuclear war
Chaotic confusion, hysterical fear
An evil was rising, the end was near
Lighting struck and the world shook like a hurricane
For all to see
The rise and fall of the land we called our paradise
For all to see
Heaven and hell
It's the end of the world
Heaven and hell
It's the end of the world
The president crying "What have we done"
Hold your fire! No use for that gun
The eyes of a nation scream in pain
A burning sensation, it's nuclear rain
People dying, what do we do
Call the savior - the red, white and blue
Lighting struck and the world shook like a hurricane
For all to see
The rise and fall of the land we called our paradise
For all to see
Heaven and hell
The fate of the nation
Heaven and hell
The fate of the nation
[solo]
Lighting struck and the world shook like a hurricane
For all to see
The rise and fall of the land we called our paradise
For all to see
Lighting struck and the world shook like a hurricane
For all to see
The rise and fall of the land we called our paradise
For all to see
Heaven and hell
It's the end of the world
Heaven and hell
The fate of the nation
Heaven and hell
The fate of the nation
Heaven and hell
The fate of the nation
Heaven and hell
It's the end of the world
The fate of the nation
Heaven and hell
It's the end of the world
4. She's A Nighttime Lover (4:30)
That's right
Love for money
Walk the streets in Hollywood, spread your legs tonight
Give your body to any man to pay the bills on time
Oh don't you feel the shame
You're just a player in the game
Nighttime lover
And though your makeup runs from standing in the rain
The cars keep pulling over and you drive away
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
She'll never meet your mother
Never meet your mother
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
But you'll never ever know her
Oooh nighttime lover
That's right
In the heat of angel town the cops all know your name
But they will never take you down, they've known you way too long
So you'll never have to hide
What you're selling on the side
Nighttime lover
I wonder if you do your crying in the rain
So no one knows what you are feeling
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
She'll never meet your mother
Never meet your mother
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
But you'll never ever know her
Oooh nighttime lover
[solo]
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
She'll never meet your mother
Never meet your mother
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
And you will never get to know her
Oooh nighttime lover
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
She'll never meet your mother
Never meet your mother
She's a nighttime lover
Oooh nighttime lover
But you'll never know her
That's right
5. Slow Kill (4:57)
In the papers I read how they found her
On her face was the look of death
In this house from hell
In the papers I read how they had found her
On her face was the look of death, a forgotten prisoner
In a small space under the stairs
Hidden away for so many years
No one would miss her
In this house from hell
Was an evil pill
For this mother's baby
Such a sweet slow kill
Slow kill
As they took them away, still said they loved her
But they both had abused their child, it was a murder
Dear Mom and Dad slightly insane
Their little girl locked up in chains
To be theirs forever
In this house from hell
Was an evil pill
For this mother's baby
Such a sweet slow kill
Slow kill
[solo]
In this house from hell
Was an evil pill
For this mother's baby
Such a sweet slow kill
In this house from
In this house from hell
Was an evil pill
For this mother's baby
Such a sweet slow kill
Slow kill
In this house from
In this house from
In this house from
In this house from hell
6. Why Do They Do That' (3:53)
Someone broke down my door
Smashed the glass in the windows broken
Then one more twist of the blade
They just keyed the car
No one here knows me for I just moved in here
But now I keep looking behind me
Seems pretty clear that I'm not wanted here
Oh, why did they do that
Tell me why
Oh, why would they do that
Tell me why
In my new neighborhood
Thought that I'd add more color
They'd take me in
And I'd be the adopted child
But I think some shit would hit me with a ball bat
If by chance I wasn't looking
Fusion of conscience confusion to me
Oh, why did they do that
Tell me why
Oh, why would they do that
I gotta know why
[solo]
Oh, why did they do that
Tell me why
Oh, why would they do that
Please tell me why
Oh, why did they do that
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
Oh, why would they do that
TELL ME WHY
7. Rock & Roll Heroes (4:38)
There's blood on the boards where passionate words
Bleed down from the stage to arena
The pilgrims are back with money they stashed
A gift to the gods of the hour
Never too loud drummer kicks the band right in the ass
No one shot gun, they're all drivers - this is the master class
Rock & Roll heroes
Forever immortal
The masters of music
Idols and legends
The man with the voice has opened his throat
Spits out the words of the story
His fingers are speeding, shredding the strings
Stripping them down to the wire
Photographs on cotton T-shirts - 30 bucks a pop
Ball hats, sweatshirts, come and get your pictures autographed
Rock & Roll heroes
Forever immortal
The masters of music
Idols and legends
Rock & Roll heroes
Forever immortal
The masters of music
Idols and legends
[solo]
I want my Rock & Roll heroes
I want my Rock & Roll heroes
I want my Rock & Roll heroes
I want my Rock & Roll heroes
Rock & Roll heroes
Forever immortal
The masters of music
Idols and legends
Rock & Roll heroes
Forever immortal
The masters of music
Idols and legends
8. Gotta Get Home (3:20)
I got a camera round my neck
No money in my pocket
Here comes the "Tea a Wana" police
I'm running, guess I lost it
Then I heard "STOP" and I turned around
And saw that gun aiming at me
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I never wanted to go there
But I was told "You got to see it"
If you can take all the verbal abuse
And the smell of the streets, it's worth it
Pharmacies like supermarkets
Photographs on painted donkeys
Real cheap booze to hold you prisoner
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
[solo]
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
I gotta get home
Gotta get home
9. What Kind Of Sanity (3:26)
You sold your soul for a moment of passion
And now your life is pure addiction, oh oh oh
Burn the needle, inject your vein
Leave behind your reality
What kind of sanity
Would throw their lives away
They're way too young to be
Part of the tragedy
Ready to die for the grand illusion
Risk your life with no hesitation, oh oh oh
Burn the needle, inject your vein
Leave behind your reality
What kind of sanity
Would throw their lives away
They're way too young to be
Part of the tragedy
What kind of sanity
Will take their pain away
They're way too young to be
Part of the tragedy
[solo]
What kind of sanity
Would throw their lives away
They're way too young to be
Part of the tragedy
What kind of sanity
Will take their pain away
They're way too young to be
Part of the tragedy
[repeat till fade]
10. Falling In Love With A Stranger (3:34)
First time I saw you
I walked into the wall and felt no pain
Could this be love
Or was it just infatuation
You wore those high heels and see thru dress
You drove me crazy, now I'm a mess
I wanna hold you all night long I confess
Come to me and be my baby
Oh oh oh oh oh
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a stranger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a danger
No complications, no kind of stress
That girl is physical when I'm in her bed
No masturbation, no fantasy
She's hot and dirty and aiming at me
My momma told me (to) look to the sea
There's plenty of fish waiting for me
So I went fishing and planted the seed
Now she's wearing my ring
Come to me and be my baby
Oh oh oh oh oh
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a stranger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a danger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a stranger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a danger
[solo]
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a stranger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a danger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a stranger
I think I'm falling
Falling in love with a danger
[repeat till fade]
