Another Perfect Day Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Back At The Funny Farm (4:12)
Hammer pounding in my heart, I think it's gonna burst
Spring unwinding in my head, I don't know which is worse
I hear ya talkin' but the words are kinda strange
One of us is crazy and the other one's insane

[CHORUS]
Stay calm, don't be alarmed, it's just a holiday
Back at the funny farm

Nothin' in this cold white room to help me recognise
I don't understand why everyone is in disguise
I gotta live right now, I can't stay here no more
But I'm afraid to try in case they've locked the door

[CHORUS]
Can't find the windows but I gotta get outside
Can you help me stand it feels like both my legs have died
What was that injection, 'cos I think it's goin' wrong
I really like this jacket but the sleeves are much too long

[CHORUS-out]
2. Shine (3:10)
Hard time gettin' to ya babe
Double take, figure real rough trade
But you know I'm a real good lover
Can't judge a book by the cover
I know, and you know I know
Can't trust your intuition no more

Look good and I make you smile
Bet ya thought I wouldn't have no style
I'm gonna turn your head around
Won't know til you hit the ground
Gonna change the way you feel
I'm gonna roll ya like a wheel

[CHORUS]
High life, I'm a fool for you
Low life, like to break the rules
First bite, you know I got a taste for you
I'm gonna make you shine

Be a switch to say the last
My beauty gonna meet your beast
Comin' over and shake your tree
My body gonna set you free
I know, and you know it's true
More over I'm comin' through

[CHORUS]

It's over and I got you down
Gonna chase you round and round
Mess around with the way you feel
Gonna offer you a whole new deal
Gonna lay it on ya just for kicks
Down on ya like a ton of bricks

[CHORUS]
3. Dancing On Your Grave (4:27)
I know you thought you're a real operator
But I don't know why
All you had was a bankroll, babe
And a glint in your eye
I'm a high-steppin' like an indian brave
I'm the one
Dancing on your grave

You know I'm a killer babe
Here's late news for you
You couldn't buy me with a million, babe
I'm too good for you
I'm know you think I'm real rough trade
Now I'm the one
Dancing on your grave

One time you was a real high-stepper
On the high trapeze
But you know you ran out of money
Wound up on your knees
I'm the one you never made
Now I'm the one
Dancing on your grave
4. Rock It (3:55)
Rock'n'roll, save your soul
An' I got it
Give it to me, loud and free
Don't knock it
Let me hear 'til the end of time
It's the only way
Send shivers up and down your spine
You can't stop it

[CHORUS]
I'm tellin' one more time
It ain't no crime
Rock it

It's the only way to fly
Gotta have it
Break thru gonna break you too
Better grab it
Let me hear it 'til the end of time
It's the only way
It'll stop you on a dime
Gotta have it

[CHORUS]

Rock'n'roll music gonna stop the world
Can't lose it
It'll make your toenails curl
Can't defuse it
Let me hear it all the time
It's the only way
Gonna make ya feel alright
You can't excuse it

[CHORUS]
5. One Track Mind (5:54)
One arm bandit, one way ride
One arm bandit, one more try
One way ticket, one horse town
One way ticket, no way down

[CHORUS]
One track mind, one track mind
One track mind, one track mind

Two lane highway, two hand car
Two lane highway, too damned far
Two faced women, two time guys
Two faced women, two black eyes

[CHORUS]

Three time loser, break the law
Three time loser, two bit whore
Three ring circus, free form show
Three ring circus, way to go

[CHORUS]
6. Another Perfect Day (5:26)
Out to lunch, speak your piece
Good and drunk, back on the street
What you see is what you get
No matter what you say
No time for anything to take the pain away
You sure ain't the chosen few
You sure turned trick or two
You pulled the deuce this time
Another perfect day

Golden boy, take a chance
You're a clockwork toy, you're a dime a dance
The truth is only black and white
No shade of grey
It's easy answers babe
But it's the hell to pay
You know it's just the same for you
Ain't nothin' you can do
No chance to change it now
Another perfect day

Total war, blow your stack
Say no more, you know you can't go back
You're acting dumb babe, you don't know
The places you can go
You know you tell the truth in a different way
No court of law would find for you
No matter what you do
Could be the perfect crime
Another perfect day
7. Marching Off To War (4:10)
Another battle's over, it's a million soldiers
Never rise again, we lost a million friends
Don't try to understand, if you weren't there
You felt different then, marching off to war

[CHORUS]

Show no quarter, delight in slaughter
Up for your last long ride, maybe God's on the other
side

Don't need no vindication, fight for the nation
You know you're going to hell, but you wear it well
You'll never understand if you weren't there
You felt different then, marching off to war

[CHORUS]
8. I Got Mine (5:21)
Here's the story, there's only me
No other place for you to be
It's only you babe, it's only you
I can't believe the things you do
Right now, right here
Ain't gonna let you disappear
Right now, this time, you got yours and I got mine

Come on baby, go back to start
I got your picture in my heart
It's only me babe, it's only me
Refuse, disposal, refugee
Rock'n'Roll you just might be my new career
Rock'n'Roll you just might be my new career

Come on baby, come on with me
You got me fallin out my tree
Be my lover, the number one
Be my friend but don't be gone
Nobody gonna interfere
9. Tales Of Glory (2:54)
I can't believe the tales you tell me
I ain't buyin' the stuff you sell me
Hey baby, I'm tellin' ya what
You think I'm sold, baby I'm not
You tell me, tales of glory
But I know, whoa babe, it's the same old story

You think I'm gonna fall for you
You reckon that I'm goin' right thru
But I ain't no adolescent
I'm just gonna keep your guessing
You ain't gonna stitch me up
You'll find that I'm real bad luck
I'm gonna leave you babe
But think of the money you'll save
You tell me, tales of glory
But I know whoa babe it's the same old story

Leave me out, leave me out
Sick and tired without a doubt
Get me out, get me out
Get me out of here

Endlessly, endlessly
You mouth won't set me free
Endlessly, endlessly
Rabbit in my ear
10. Die You Bastard (4:33)
You can smell the danger, watch your step
See the frienly stranger stretch your neck
Keep them in the dark, now, it's alright
You know they only come out at night

[CHORUS]
Your shadows alive, it breathes at your side
Got no place to hide, be with you 'til the day you die

You can hear the rumors, shut your mouth
Deal with the misfits, wipe 'em out
Search in all the bedrooms, use your head
Listen to your conscience, wake the dead

[CHORUS]

Mother kiss a vampire, shut the door
Rats in all the rooms, babe, hit the floor
I think it's a gamble, but what's your sign
Upway at the downside, stay in line

[CHORUS OUT AND TITLE]
