1. Dig
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

When it's kill or be killed baby
I sometimes wish we ate our young
If fear was clear, then just maybe
All your sweet dreams will make you strong

Babe, you need some help
Babe, not by yourself no
Hey, a plea for mercy
Hey, your winter's here to stay

Dig a hole, dig it deep
Bury yourself alive
Say a prayer, say one for me
Then kiss your ass goodbye

All out of time, your luck's on empty
Your pain if flows like falling rain
It's never ending
Your faith comes from the damage done
Never ever thought you did no wrong
It seems so strange that you're complaining

You say, you have a vision
But hey, you lack conviction you know
You think you're on a mission from God
But look at your condition you know

Dig a hole, dig it deep
Bury yourself alive
Say a prayer, say one for me
Then kiss your ass goodbye

Dig a hole, how do you sleep
Holding your fears inside
Say a prayer, say one for me
Then kiss your ass goodbye

Dig a hole, dig it deep
Bury yourself alive
Say a prayer, say one for me
Then kiss your ass bye-bye

Dig a hole, how do you sleep
Holding your fears inside
Say a prayer, say one for me
Then kiss your ass goodbye

No more fears - No more lying
It's so clear -- He more crying

No more fears He more lying
All your fears keep on trying

Keep on trying
No use, no use, no use crying
Oh!
2. Pretty Pack 'O Lies
[Ron Day]

I don't think I'll hang around here
Maybe I could
Flying so high, no landing gear
Don't do nobody good
You slide around this sleazy town
Nose pressed to the sky high
You slide around this funky town
Thinking you'll never die

Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out as you hit the ground
Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out as you hit the ground

I don't think I stand a chance of
Watching you grow old
Pin cushion Lucy she died
And the ice is flowing cold
You fly around this rocket town
Way high late at night, high, high, high, high
You slide around this funky town
Ain't never gonna die, die, die

Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out as you hit the ground
Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out as you hit the ground
Head down as you hit the ground
Head down as you hit the ground

I know, I know you try some live and some will die
I know love will find a way when it comes to you another day
I know I know you'll see when it brings you to your knees
I hope, I hope you see it's all lies

I said Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out as you hit the ground
Lies, Lies! It's all a pretty pack of lies
And when you're falling down
Watch out

It's all lies! It's all lies! It's all lies! It's all lies
Lies a pretty pack of lies yeah
3. All Day And All Of The Night
[Ray Davies]

I'm not content to be with you in the day time
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl I want to be with you all of the time

All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and night time yours, leaves me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time

All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night oh yeah

I believe that you and me last forever
Oh yeah, all day and night time yours, leaves me never
The only time I feel alright is by your side
Girl, I want to be with you all of the time

All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
All day and all of the night
4. Whatever It Takes
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

Dancing on a tightrope
Walking with the moonshine
Sneaking up the wrong road
Making up an alibi

Clawing, scraping, living ain't easy
Looking for a friend
Dancing madly backwards and forwards
Searching for the bend

Keep on rollin', let it flow
Got a feelin' I want you to know
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do whatever it takes

Making no apologies
Out of mediocrity
I'm feelin' like a dynamo
With no particular place to go

Good times, bad times, nothing can stop me
Got the will to survive
Get up, stand up, won't be afraid of
All the fear that's inside

So keep on rollin', let it flow
Got a feelin' I want you to know
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do whatever it takes

In the corner, holding court
There's a fever we all sport
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do whatever it takes
Whatever it takes

Clawing, scraping, living ain't easy
Looking for a friend
Dancing madly backwards and forwards
Stop!

Keep on rollin', let it flow
Got a feelin' I want you to know
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do whatever it takes

In the corner, holding court
There's a fever we all sport
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do whatever it takes
Rock the river, shake the lake
We're gonna do
Nothing to lose every days

Think I want
Shake for me
Baby, Mamamamamamama
Living in the fantasy
In the all
5. Wings Of A Cloud
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

Flying far from the scene of the crime now
Nothing more that I want to be part of
Gonna break the chains that been holding me down
Gonna spread my wings and I'll fly now
Gonna set my sights on the velvet moon

I can hear my train is a comin'
I can feel my blood is a boilin'
I see my fate on the wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud Wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud

You can keep your vision of a perfect world
It's just a matter of time, it's gonna crash and burn
Shooting stars are gonna be my only friends
In the wink of an eye I'll be gone now
Gonna get it right and none too soon

I can hear my train is a comin'
I can feel my blood is a boilin'
I see my fate on the wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud
On the wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud, gonna get you

Gonna break the chains that been holding me down
Gonna spread my wings and I'll fly now
Gonna set my sights on the velvet moon

I can hear my train is a comin'
I can feel my blood is a boilin'
I see my fate on the wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud
On the wings of a cloud
Wings of a cloud

I'm gonna get forever in sight
Gonna hold my soul up to the light
I can ride the wind
On the wings of a cloud
Here I come baby!

Oh babe, think
On the wings, on the wings
6. Trouble Again
I hear a black cat moaning
In the middle of the night
Like a smoke stack lightning
That's burning bright
I went down to the crossroads
Where I met a man
He said: I'll show you the way
If you take my hand
I ain't superstitious, but maybe I should
I'd cast a spell on you if I could, if I could

Oh no, here it comes
Looks like I'm in trouble again
Bad luck ain't heaven sent
Looks like I'm in trouble, trouble again

Standing in the shadows
In the middle of the night
Knee deep in quicksand
It's getting really tight
I got a voodoo woman
Down Louisiana way
She said: The devil gonna find you
Nothing you can do, better get on your way
You're on the wrong road at the right time
There's a bad moon on the rise, on the rise

Oh no, here it comes
Looks like I'm in trouble again
Bad luck ain't heaven sent
Looks like I'm in trouble again

Oh no, here it comes
Looks like I'm in trouble again
Bad luck ain't heaven sent
Looks like I'm in trouble, trouble again

I'm in trouble, trouble again
I don't know when I'll be back again oh no
Bad luck follows, it never ends
The winding road can't take me home

Oh no, here it comes
Looks like I'm in trouble again
Bad luck ain't heaven sent
Yea get in trouble again

They find do They find don't
Looks like I'm in trouble again
Look out It's way a goes
Looks like I'm in trouble again

Voodoo ahead, witchcraft behind
Looks like me and trouble are two of a kind
The die is cast, I can't break the mold
Trouble's gonna follow me wherever, wherever I go
7. Voodoo Brew
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

Let me tell you a story, not gonna take too long
Just sit on down and listen under the sun
Papa, he was a drinking man, Mama wasn't very strong
He liked whisky and women, drank all night long, all night long

That night he had a nasty feeling, if he stayed in town too long
The life that he'd been leading takes him down to the bone
The moon was full around midnight, the sheriff took my
Papa down, down, down
His luck had finally run out and laid him to the ground, yes it did

It's me they blamed for the killing
They knew I owned the smoking gun
No alibi can satisfy, I fear it's hanging time, no
It's time to start 'a running and cross the county line
I hear the 9:15 'a rolling down track number nine, rolling on
Hear my train a coming

The hounds of doom come a howling
The bayou's trying to slow me down, down, down
Better keep on moving, stay low to the ground

I'm gonna start all over with no misery and no pain, no
But if they track me down, I'll be down to the bone
But if they take my life, I'll be down to the bone
Down to the bone, midnight hour
If they take my life, I'll be down to the bone
8. Down To The Bone
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

Baby walks, baby talks
Baby got them voodoo thoughts
Baby pants, baby chants
Baby does the back street dance

She swoons in the moonlight
She screams in the sunlight

You got voodoo - Voodoo Brew
You got voodoo - Voodoo Brew

Mojo moves, cajun grooves
Cast a spell with magic brews
Sleep the day, pump the night
Get the girs-gris, do it right
It right, oh yeah, oh right

She crawls like a king snake
She howls like a wolfgang
She gives as much as she takes
Sort of pulls but she won't break

You got voodoo - Voodoo Brew
I want voodoo - Voodoo Brew
You got voodoo - Voodoo Brew
I want voodoo - Voodoo Brew

Baby walks, baby talks
Baby got them voodoo thoughts
Baby pants, baby chants
She does the back street dance
Oh mine, oh yeah, oh precious baby

I want voodoo - Voodoo Brew
I want voodoo - Voodoo Brew
9. Monday Morning Breakdown
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

In the darkness your heart is breaking with no one there
There's a sadness, you shed a tear but no one cares
Keep on running from the shattered dreams you can't repair
Look for comfort, your empty life's so hard to bear

In the middle of the night when you think you can't go on
Can't you take it
In a broken state of mind, will you make it
When the waves of loneliness rush to tear your life apart
Will they drown you
Is it freedom that you want

Take me away, Monday morning breakdown
You can't escape, early warning cry

At the crossroads, the breaking point it all too near
In your madness, the road to nowhere seems so clear

If every single day brings you closer to the edge
Look around you
Get out if you can, do you want to
It's a matter of time and you're gonna draw the line
That surrounds you
When you're out on a limb, hold on

Take me away, Monday morning breakdown
It's here to stay, early warning cry
You can't escape, that Monday morning breakdown
Come on Take me

You can't change the world, you can't change the past
You can't change your mind, so this one's got to last

In the middle of the night when you think you can't go on
Can't you take it
In a broken state of mind, will you make it
When the waves of loneliness rush to tear your life apart
Will they drown you
Gotta get out! Gotta get out!

Take me away, Monday morning breakdown
Early warning cry
You can't escape, that Monday morning breakdown
10. Live Till It Hurts
[Kevin DuBrow -- Carlos Cavazo -- Frankie Ba**li -- Steve Brandstetter]

Mama, mama, mama, mama yeah all right

Can't take a look in the mirror, it's gonna bust the beast
But I am alive
I only flirt with danger until I feel the heat
That's how I survive

The slave that I can't master
Eternal life thereafter
Sick of it all

Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Give! Give! Give and take all you deserve
Do what you do till your black and blue
Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts

And when my body hungers I feed my passion first
Demand my supply
We're each a savage hunter on this collision curse
I'll take you alive

All magic, all illusion
Your love is my transfusion
Never say die

Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Give! Give! Give and take all you deserve
Do what you do till your black and blue
Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
All right

No matter what you do you gotta make a sacrifice
Let 'em take a bite of you, everybody's got a pray the price, oh yeah

The slave that I can't master
Eternal life thereafter
Sick of it all - Live 'til it hurts

Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Give! Give! Give and take all you deserve
Do what you do till your black and blue
Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts

Live! Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Give! Give! Give and take all you deserve
Come on
Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Live! Live! Live 'til it hurts
Oh yeah, oh mamamama
Live 'til it hurts
11. All Wound Up
Got an active imagination
Just one look, I've got it bad
Got a dose of your inspiration
Hang 'em high, salute the flag

Come on babe, don't I know you
Come on girl, lend a hand
'Cos I'm all wound up, down on your knees

Losing all your inhibitions
Looks to me like heavens gate, all right
You can see by my condition
Hold on tight, we got it made, made, made

Get down, assume the position
Look out before I lose control
'Cos I'm all wound up, down on your knees
'Cos I'm all wound up, got what you need

Looks to me like we're in business
Close the deal, it's time to go - get on home
Seems to me by your reaction
You must have already loved the show oh no

Come on babe, don't I know you
Come on girl, lend a hand
'Cos I'm all wound up, down on your knees
'Cos I'm all wound up, got what you need
Got what you need look out baby!

'Cos I'm all wound up,
'Cos I'm wound up tight feeling alright
Do with, do with, do with right all right
12. Twisted
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

Whoa! Whoa! Tied up and twisted

When trust turns to rust
You only have instinct to count on
Passion is fashioned to crash and burn
Just when you found some
It's like the sound of falling rain
Nothing to lose and so much to gain
Ecstasy or misery, my destiny what will it be

Tied up and twisted - Screamin' in the night
Tied up and twisted - The bark that makes you bite
Whoa, tied up and twisted! Whoa, tied up and twisted!

If sin is the shoe that fits, we're all born to wear it
Restrictions create a conflict for souls who can bear it
The pressure's getting hard to take
Something's got to give or I'm gonna break
My purgatory fears, the madness now seems so clear

Tied up and twisted - Screamin' in the night
Tied up and twisted - The bark that makes you bite
Whoa, tied up and twisted! Whoa, tied up and twisted!

Ecstasy or misery, my destiny what will it be

Demented incentive is my main motivation
I walk down a rocky road, there is no salvation
Gonna put it in, gonna pull it out

Tied up and twisted - Screamin' in the night
Tied up and twisted - The bark that makes you bite
Whoa! Whoa!
Whoa, tied up and twisted!

Twisted, twisted, twisted, twisted
Yeah got me all time dirty yeah, oh yeah
You got me tied up and twisted!
13. Hell Or High Water
[Carlos Cavazo - Kevin DuBrow - Frankie Ba**li]

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon

They're out to get you anyway they can
It just might hurt you, but then again
It's just a token of the extreme
Listen, that pain won't gain you nothing
Don't turn your back or something
Will come back to haunt you
Ain't no rule, says you'll be their fool

Hell or high water
We rebel when we call for
I said Hell or high water

Don't try too suck me into a trap
Don't try to bite my baby cause I bite back
What were you thinking, you turn me loose
Well, it's mind over matter
I don't mind and you don't matter
Can't take no prisoners who don't want to be
I can't see whose hand it feeds

Hell or high water
We rebel when we call for
I said Hell or high
Water down the drain is of no use to me
Don't cry over spilt milk, it makes me wanna scream

Hell or high water
We rebel when we call for
I said Hell or high water

Nothing's gonna stop me now - No! No!
No one's gonna push me around - Alright!
Hell or high water

Hell or high water
