1. Fuel (4:29)
Gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

Yeah, turn on, I see red
Adrenaline crash and crack my head
Nitro junkie, paint me dead... and I see red
One hundred plus through black and white
War horse, warhead. fuck 'em, man
White-knuckle tight through black and white

Oh, on I burn, fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And on I burn churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

Turn on beyond the bone
Swallow future, spit out home
Burn your face upon the chrome
Take the corner, join the crash
Headlights, head on, headlines
Another junkie lives too fast
...Yeah, lives way too fast...

Oh, on I burn, fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And on I burn churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

So gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

White-knuckle tight!

Gimme fuel, gimme fire, my desire
Oh, on I burn, fuel is pumping engines
Burning hard, loose and clean
And on I burn churning my direction
Quench my thirst with gasoline

Gimme fuel, gimme fire
Gimme that which I desire!

On I burn!
2. The Memory Remains (4:39)
Fortune, fame, mirror, vain
Gone insane, but the memory remains

Heavy rings on fingers wave, another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd cry the nowhere cheers of honor
Like twisted vines that grow, hide and swallow mansions whole
And dim the light of an already faded prima donna

Fortune, fame, mirror, vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame, mirror vain
Gone insane, but the memory remains

Heavy rings hold cigarettes up to lips that time forgets
While the Hollywood sun sets behind your back
And can't the band play on? Just listen, they play my song
Ash to ash, dust to dust, fade to black

Fortune, fame, mirror, vain
Gone insane
Fortune, fame, mirror, vain
Gone insane
Dance, little tin goddess

Drift away, fade away little tin goddess
Ash to ash, dust to dust, fade to black
3. Devil's Dance (5:18)
Yeah, I feel you too, feel those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns
To free the you that's wanting through
Deep inside, you know, the seeds I plant will grow

One day you will see and dare to come down to me
Yeah, c'mon, c'mon now take the chance
That's right, let's dance

Snake, I am the snake, tempting, that bite to take
Let me make your mind, leave yourself behind
Be not afraid, I've got what you need, hunger I will feed

One day you will see and dare to come down to me
Yeah, c'mon, c'mon now take the chance, haha!
Come dance... yeah, come dance

One day you will see and dare to come down to me
Yeah, c'mon, c'mon now take the chance

Yeah, I feel you too, feel those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns
To free the you that's wanting through
Deep inside, you know, the seeds I plant will grow

One day you will see and dare to come down to me
Yeah, c'mon, c'mon now take the chance
That's right, let's dance

It's nice to see you here, haha!
4. The Unforgiven II (6:36)
Lay beside me, tell me what they've done
Speak the words I want to hear to make my demons run
The door is locked now, but it's opened if you're true
If you can understand the me, then I can understand the you

Lay beside me, under wicked skies
Through black of day, dark of night, we share this paralyze
The door cracks open, but there's no sun shining through
Black heart scarring darker still, but there's no sun shining through
No, there's no sun shining through, no, there's no sun shining

What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?
Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired I stand alone
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you
...or are you unforgiven, too?

Come, lay beside me, this won't hurt, I swear
She loves me not, she loves me still, but she'll never love again
She lay beside me but she'll be there when I'm gone
Black heart scarring darker still, yes, she'll be there when I'm gone
Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone, dead sure she'll be there

What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn to stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?
Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired I stand alone
Could you be there, 'cause I'm the one who waits for you
...or are you unforgiven, too?

Lay beside me, tell me what I've done
The door is closed, so are your eyes
But now I see the sun, now I see the sun
Yes, now I see it...

What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you?
Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known
Sick and tired I stand alone
Could you be there? 'Cause I'm the one who waits
The one who waits for you
What I've felt, what I've known
Turn the pages, turn the stone
Behind the door, should I open it for you, oh?
What I've felt, what I've known
I take this key and I bury it in you
Because you're unforgiven, too
Never free, never me
'Cause you're unforgiven, too...
5. Better Than You (5:21)
I look at you, then you, me
Hungry and thirsty are we
Holding the lion's share, holding the key
Holding me back 'cause I'm striving to be

Better than you
Better than you

Lock horns, I push and I strive
Somehow I feel more alive
Bury the need for it, bury the seed
Bury me deep when there's no will to be

Better than you
Better than you

Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
Oh yeah, nothing brings me down
No, can't stop this train from rolling on and on, on
No, no, forever on and on

Oh, can't stop this train from rolling
Oh yeah, you can't take it down
No, never stop this locomotion, on and on and on
No, you can't bring me down 'cause I'm

Better than you...
Much better than you
6. Slither (5:13)
Don't go looking for snakes, you might find them
Don't send your eyes to the sun, you might blind them
Haven't I seen you here before?

Oh, watch the puppets dancing
Yeah, see the clowns fall down
Hay!, tie your tap shoes tightly
Yeah, and wear them into town

See you crawlin', see you crawlin' in

Don't go looking for snakes, you might find them
Don't send your eyes to the sun, you might blind them
Haven't I seen you here before?
There ain't no heroes here, no, no more

Oh, play the game so nicely
Oh, check, it's your move now
Yeah, we're standing in this jungle
Yeah, with serpents I have found

See you crawlin', see you crawlin' in

Don't go looking for snakes, you might find them
Don't send your eyes to the sun, you might blind them
Haven't I seen you here before?
Have your heroes disappeared?

See you crawlin', see you crawlin' in

So don't go looking for snakes, you might find them
Don't send your eyes to the sun, you might blind them
Haven't I seen you here before?
No, there ain't no heroes here... no

Haven't I seen you here before?
No, there ain't no heroes here
Don't go looking for snakes, you might find them
Yeah, haven't I seen you here before?
Have your heroes disappeared?
Don't send your eyes to the sun, you might blind them
7. Carpe Diem Baby (6:12)
Hit dirt, shake tree
Split sky, part sea
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Live, win, dare, fail
Eat the dirt and bite the nail

Then make me miss you
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem, baby

Draw lead, piss wine
Sink teeth, all mine
Stoke fire, break neck
Suffer through this, cheat on death
Hug the curve, lose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you, oh yeah
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come carpe diem, baby, yeah, suck it

Live, win, dare, fail
Eat dirt, bite the nail
Strip smile, lose cool
Bleed the day and break the rule
Hug the curve, lose the time
Tear the map and shoot the sign

Then make me miss you, come on, come on
Then make me miss you

So wash your face away with dirt
It don't feel good until it hurts
So take this world and shake it
Come squeeze and suck the day
Come make me miss you
Come carpe diem, baby
Come carpe diem, baby
8. Bad Seed (4:05)
Come clean, fess up
Tell all, spill gut
Off the veil, stand revealed
Show the cards, bring it on, break the seal

Ladies and gentlemen step right up
And see the man who told the truth

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Now you're choking on the bad seed
On the bad seed... choking

Let on, load off
Confess, cast off
At the mercy, the cat is out
Drop the disguise, spit it up, spit it out

And now, what you've all been waiting for
I give you He Who Suffers the Truth

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Now you're choking on the bad seed
Choking on the bad seed

Off the veil, stand revealed
Bring it on, break the seal
At the mercy, cat is out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it out now!

At the mercy

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
Choking on the seed...

Swing the noose again
Pierce the apple skin
You bit more than you need
You're choking on the bad seed

Off the veil, stand revealed
Bring it on, break the seal
At the mercy, cat is out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it up, spit it out
Spit it out now!
Choking on the bad seed...
9. Where The Wild Things Are (6:52)
So wake up, sleepy one
It's time to save your world

Steal dreams and give to you
Shoplift a thought or two
All children touch the sun
Burn fingers one by one, by one

Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up, sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah, toy soldiers off to war

Big eyes to open soon
Believing all under sun and moon
But does heaven know you're here?
And did they give you smiles or tears?
No, no tears

Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up, sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Yeah, toy soldiers off to war

You swing your rattle down
Call to arms, the trumpets sound
Toy horses start the charge
Robot chessmen standing guard

Hand puppets storm the beach
Fire trucks trapped out of reach
Hand puppets storm the beach
Fire trucks trapped out of reach
All clowns reinforce the rear
Slingshots fire into the air
All clowns reinforce the rear
Slingshots fire into the air
Stuffed bears hold the hill till death
Crossfire from the marionettes
Stuffed bears hold the hill till death
Crossfire from the marionettes
We shall never surrender

All you children touch the sun
Burn your fingers one by one
Will this earth be good to you?
Keep you clean or stain through?

So wake up, sleepy one
It's time to save your world
You're where the wild things are
Toy soldiers off to war
Off to war, off to war...

So close your little eyes
10. Prince Charming (6:05)
There's a black cloud overhead, that's me
And the poison ivy chokes the tree, again it's me
I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street you walk on by
I'm the little boy that pushes hard and makes it cry

There's a dirty needle in your child, haha!, stick me
Empty bottles still in hand, still dead, still me
I'm the suit and tie that bleeds the street and still wants more
I'm the forty-five that's in your mouth, I'm a dirty, dirty whore

Yeah, look, it's me, the one who can't be free
Much too young to focus, but too old to see
Hey, look, it's me, what no one wants to see
See what you brought this world, just what you want to see
Hey, Ma, hey, Mom! Look, it's me

Yeah, and he wants to be called 밊ather?now, me again, me
The marks inside your arms spell me, spell only me
I'm the nothing face that plants the bomb and strolls away
I'm the one who doesn't look quite right as children play

Yeah, look, it's me, the one who can't be free
Much too young to focus, but too old to see
Hey, look, it's me, what no one wants to see
See what you brought this world, just what you want to see
Hey, Ma, hey, Mom! Look, it's me...

Look up to me, what to be and what to fear
Look up to me look, it's me, like what you hear?
See right through me, see the one who can't be free
See right through me, look, it's me, what no one wants to see

Now see the black cloud up ahead, that's me
And this poison ivy chokes the tree, again it's me
And I'm the filthy one on Bourbon Street you walk on by
I'm the little boy that pushes, pushes, makes it cry

Yeah, look, it's me, the one who can't be free
Much too young to focus, but too old to see
Hey, look, it's me, what no one wants to see
See what you brought this world, just what you want to see
Hey, Ma, hey, Mom! Look, it's me, yeah

Hey, Ma, hey, Ma! Look, it's me!
11. Low Man's Lyric (7:36)
My eyes seek reality, my fingers seek my veins
There's a dog at your back step, he must come in from the rain
I fall 'cause I've let go, the net below has rot away
So my eyes seek reality and my fingers seek my veins

The trash fire is warm, but nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see what I've let me be so wicked and worn
So as I write to you of what is done and to do
Maybe you'll understand and you won't cry for this man 'cause low man is due

Please forgive me

My eyes seek reality, my fingers feel for faith
Touch clean with a dirty hand, I touch the clean to the waste

The trash fire is warm, but nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see what I've let me be so wicked and worn
So as I write to you, yeah, of what is done and to do
Maybe you'll understand and won't cry for this man 'cause low man is due

Please forgive me!
Please forgive me...

So low, the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

And I cry to the alleyway, confess all to the rain
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror, the one I've broken to match my face

The trash fire is warm, but nowhere safe from the storm
And I can't bear to see what I've let me be so wicked and worn
So as I write to you of what is done and to do
Maybe you'll understand and won't cry for this man 'cause low man is due

Please forgive me!
Please forgive me...

So low, the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

My eyes seek reality, my fingers seek my veins...
12. Attitude (5:16)
Suppose I say: "I'm never satisfied"
Suppose I say: "You cut some root to make the tree survive"

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once, I'm, oh, so bored to death

I hunger, I hunger, I eat!

Born into attitude, asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire and run like hell
Why cure the fever? Whatever happened to sweat?

Suppose I say: "The vultures smile at me"
Suppose I say: "I've sent them down and they plan to pick you clean"

And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone, gone, gone again

I hunger, I hunger, I eat!

Born into attitude, asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire and stand there
Born into attitude, twist mother tongue
Throw all your bullets in the fire and run like hell
Why cure the fever? Whatever happened to sweat?

Just let me kill you for a while
Just let me kill you for a smile
Just let me kill you once for me, I'm bored to death
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction this way comes
And satisfaction's here and gone, gone, gone again

Yeah, I hunger, I hunger, I eat!

Born into attitude, asleep at the wheel
Throw all your bullets in the fire and stand there
Born into attitude, twist mother tongue
Throwing all your bullets in the fire and run like hell
Why cure the fever? Whatever happened to sweat?
13. Fixxxer (8:14)
Dolls of voodoo all stuck with pins
Oone for each of us and our sins
So you lay us in a line, push your pins, they make us humble
Only you can tell in time if we fall or merely stumble

But tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin, jab another pin in me

Mirror, mirror, upon thy wall break the spell or become the doll
See you sharpening the pins, so the holes will remind us
We're just the toys in the hands of another
...and in time the needles turn from shine to rust

But tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin, jab another pin in me... jab it

Blood for face, sweat for dirt, three Xs for the stone
To break this curse a ritual's due
I believe I'm not alone
Shell of shotgun, pint of gin
Numb us up to shield the pins
Renew our faith, which way we can
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love with life again
To fall in love
To fall in love
To fall in love with life again

So tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or fix this hole in a mother's son?
Can you heal the broken worlds within?
Can you strip away so we may start again?
Yeah, tell me, can you heal what Father's done?
Or cut this rope and let us run?
Just when all seems fine and I'm pain free
You jab another pin, jab another pin in me...
No more pins in me... no more, no more pins in me...
