Overkill Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Overkill (5:10)
Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud,
So good you can't believe it's screaming with the crowd,
Don't sweat it, get it back to you,
Overkill, Overkill

On your feet you feel the beat, it goes straight to your spine,
Shake your head you must be dead if it don't make you fly,
Don't sweat it, get it back to you,
Overkill, Overkill

Know your body's made to move, feel it in your guts
Rock 'n' roll ain't worth the name if it don't make you strut,
Don't sweat it, get it back to you,
Overkill, Overkill
2. Stay Clean (2:38)
I can tell, seen before,
I know the way, I know the law,
Can't believe, can't obey,
Can't agree with all the things I hear you say,
Oh no, don't ask me why,
I can't go on with all these filthy white lies, Stay Clean

Don't you know, all the time,
You got yours and you know that I've got mine,
Grab a hold, don't let go,
Don't let them rob you of the only thing you know,
Oh no, no-one else,
Got the right to make you sorry for yourself, Stay Clean

So you see, the only proof,
Of what you are is in the way you see the truth,
Don't be scared, live to win,
Although they're always gonna tell you it's a sin,
In the end, you're on your own,
And there is no-one that can stop you being alone, Stay Clean.
3. (I Won't) Pay Your Price (2:53)
Move out it's time for someone else
Quit thinking only of yourself,
You know you're a nasty piece of work,
You know you thought you were a hero but
you're really just a jerk,
On my way, you know I Won't Pay Your Price

Don't stop me dontcha even try,
Gonna stick my finger in your eye,
You don't deserve my admiration,
And I'll sling you out the window
if you give me aggravation,
On my way, you know I Won't Pay Your Price

I'm tired of listening to crap,
I'd rather stab you in the back,
I'm telling you the only real reason that
you ain't got it is 'cos skunk is outta season,
On my way, you know I Won't Pay Your Price

Shut the door behind you when you go,
Why you're still here I don't really know,
I'm gonna count up to three and if you're still here
I'll get a gun and blow away your knees,
On my way, you know I Won't Pay Your Price
4. I'll Be Your Sister (2:51)
I'll Be Your Sister, be your lover yeah,
Be your mother, if you need somebody,
If you need someone to love,
I'm the one you should be thinking of,
If you need somebody, I'm your hand in glove

I'll be your lover, be your sister maybe,
I'll be your mother, if you need it baby,
If you think that it's the end,
I'm gonna prove I can come back again,
If you need somebody, I'm your only friend

I'll be your mother, I'll be your lover,
Be your sister, be your lover yeah,
If you need someone, you're feeling tired,
Need someone to set your heart on fire,
It's so lonely, hanging on the wire.
5. Capricorn (4:11)
A thousand nights, I've spent alone,
Solitaire, to the bone,
But I don't mind, I'm my own best friend,
From the beginning, to the end,
My life, my heart, black night, dark star, Capricorn

December's child, the only one,
What I do, is what I've done,
I realise, I get so cold,
When I was young I was already old,
My life, my heart, black night, dark star, Capricorn

I always knew, the only way,
Is never live, beyond today,
They proved me right,
They proved me wrong,
But they could never last this long,
My life, my heart, black night, dark star, Capricorn
6. No Class (2:37)
Shut up, you talk too loud,
You don't fit in with the crowd,
I can't believe you exist,
I've crossed you right off my list,
Too much, too soon, you're way out of tune,
No Class

Way out, you're way out of line,
No buddy I can't spare a dime,
Fade out, baby that's right,
No bark and even less bite,
Your perfect smile, betrays your lack of style,
No Class

Too late, you can't catch up now,
You face the wrong way anyhow,
I know you ain't got the brain,
To come in out of the rain,
Too bad, no magic, I'm afraid you're really tragic,
No Class
7. Damage Case (3:01)
Hey babe don't act so scared
All I want is some special care
I'm on the run from some institution
All I want's a little consolation
And I can tell by your face
I'm a total disgrace
Let me inside your place
Move over for a Damage Case

Hey babe wait a minute stop
Don't run away don't call the cops
I ain't looking to victimise you
All I want to do is tantalise you
And I can tell by your face
I'm all over the place
I can tell by your face
Got no time for a Damage Case

Hey babe don't turn away
I'm here tomorrow I'm gone today
I don't even care what you think your game is
I don't even care what your name is
And I can tell by your face
You're all over the place
Let me inside your place
Move over for a Damage Case
8. Tear Ya Down (2:38)
Gonna show you what it's all about,
I'm gonna make your toenails curl,
Gonna show you how to make me smile,
I'm really into long legged girls,
I was talking to you all night long,
Every line was a favourite song,
Gonna show you how to make me laugh,
I'm gonna Tear Ya Down

Gonna show you what it's all about,
I'm gonna shoot ya down tonight,
I don't really wanna freak you out,
But I'm gonna make ya feel alright,
I was talking to you all night through,
And I knew you were rolling me too,
Gonna shake you till your lips turn blue,
I'm gonna Tear Ya Down

Gonna show you how to strut your stuff,
I'm gonna make your dreams come true,
Gonna show you how to change your luck,
I'm really gonna do it to you,
I was talking to ya hours and hours,
I promised you hearts and flowers,
I'll give you supernatural powers,
I'm gonna Tear Ya Down.
9. Metropolis (3:33)
Metropolis, the worlds collide,
Ain't nobody could be on your side,
I don't care,I don't care

Metropolis is something new,
Ain't nobody got their eye on you,
I don't care,I don't care

Metropolis, the worlds collide,
Ain't nobody on the other side,
I don't care, I'm not there.
10. Limb From Limb (4:53)
Well I've never done nothing,
That's ever gonna shame my life,
Come around any time you like honey,
There ain't no shame in my bed at night

Long legged lover,
I'm gonna rip you Limb From Limb,
Get you smashed as a rat in some bar,
Sink my claws into your velvet skin

Harsh, cruel words babe,
They're gonna cut me like a knife,
I don't care what the hell you call me,
But are ya still coming round tonight?
