Clown in the Mirror Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Intro/Wasted Time (5:38)
You're out huntin' if I'm the prize - so roll the ball!
I'm like a mad dog, keep fightin' - back against the wall!

Come on I'll show you the world you never seen,
Come on I'll teach you - good fight is when you win!
(So listen up)

Wasted time, like a poison in my wine, I call it...
The perfect crime - like a bullet in the back it search you.
Time is running out it hurts you,
Goin' down because of wasted time...

I'll keep on tryin' - NO ONE ALLOWED - I'm out too late.
See losers cryin' - the sort thing I use to hate...
2. Ten To Life (3:37)
Sun's comin' up and news starts spreadin' around.
Yesterday's gone, and you man I had to gun down, down, down.

Hey mister "know it all" - what the hell you gonna do?
When a jerk like that takes a swing at you.
You'll run for cover, you'll spit him in the eye,
You'll pull the trigger! - don't tell me lies...

My mother said straight way's build on pride, yeah.
If wishes were horses then beggars would be ride, and ride, ride, ride.
Hey mister "know it all" - what the hell you gonna do?

When a jerk like that takes a swing at you.
You'll call it even, you'll desperately weep,
You'll pull the trigger! - and nail that creep...

Ten to life - now the crime is done.
So long - I'm too far gone...
Ten to life - from a judge so fine,
Best man - that money can buy...

Took a shot but I've failed,
Now I'm dying in jail.
And it cuts like a knife,
I'm gettin' Ten To Life...

Just like a dream they busted me and put me away,
Over the hills and down to the slammer to stay.

Hey mister "know it all" - what the hell you gonna do?
When a jerk like that takes a swing at you.
You'll turn another cheek, take livin' in disgrace,
You'll pull the trigger - get off of my face...
3. On The Run (3:15)
I got those wheels for nothin', yeah, some cash to burn.
Talk of the town keep movin',
No excuses, no return.
Too dumb to steal, too proud to beg - don't shake my tree.
I've been around the block,
There money's tight and nothing's free!

An angels face and butcher eyes, a quiet prayer - pack of lies.
They call you fate - I call you pain and here I go again!...

On the run,
My journey's just begun! I'm
On the run,
Oh God, what have I done!
On the run,
Like a unforgiven son, I'm
On the run!
Like a night I'm chasin' down...

I won't take any crap and I'm not comin' back,
I gonna give you kind of peace of mind,
No - shadow's right behind your back.
I've pumped it up, you've called me bad news, now I'm gone.
No pity regrets 'bout,
Things I've said and things I've done.

Look all around the place - law's gone, there's no respect,
Don't get too close I've got my reputation to protect!
So check it out the place is dead - low life, no fun.
You listen up, and listen good -
I'm better off just livin' on the run!
4. Clown In The Mirror (4:33)
Our circus closed, and the midnight ghost,
Comin' out as light's gone down.
Old and tired clown, no one is around,
Staring at the mirror - now listen...

Oh, show must go one,
Lived in the crowd, dyin' all alone...

Clown in the mirror - glitter and scars.
Here's the pleasure and pain looks as one...
Clown in the mirror - touchin' the stars,
Flyin' in dreams to the sun...

What a mask can say?
Cry the night away!
Askin' mirror - "tell me how long?"...
Wrigglin' all those years, through the laugher'n'tears,
Don't believe in hearts of stone...

Oh, show must go on,
Lived in the crowd, dyin' all alone...

Clown in the mirror, glitter and scars.
Here's pleasure and pain looks as one...
Clown in the mirror touchin' the stars,
Flyin' in dreams to the sun...

But the sun will rise, evil took the prize,
Something will remind you...
Sign of disgrace - this paint on your face...
5. Third Stage (1:47)
[Instrumental by Andre Anderson
6. Bodyguard (4:13)
Tell me more, all about your class.
Wasted days - used to watch your ass.
Make your move, cos' you're in - I'll pass
Lets clear the air -
Hearts of stone and one track mind,
Makin' bread on an easy ride.
Cover up for a heavy crime,
You call it fair?

You'll never start learnin',
Just keep those wheels turnin',
My heart goes on burnin'...

What's you gonna do when your world goes down?
Small time player on the big ground,
Push it to the limit but the moment's gone.
Now I'm out.
Money for the blow and you think you're big?
Build your muscles but your heart gets weak.
Makin' up a dream it falls apart,
I don't wanna be your bodyguard.

Listen up - here's something new -
Now I'm quit protecting you.
Fuck yourself til' the you're black and blue,
Get off my side.
I don't care if you're in or out,
Make believes what it's all about.
Be a part of the faceless crowd,
I'll be alright!

You'll never start learnin',
Just keep those wheels turnin',
My heart goes on burnin'...
7. Legion Of The Damned (5:02)
I'm back in town where I was born,
Where street's so cold and heart's of stone.

They told me - kid, you'll see the sun.
I did! through the barrel of the gun...

Day one I understood the game,
So much to loose - so much to gain.

I'm not the one who's left behind,
I know I'll make it - through the night...

Somebody's gonna die in a desperate fight,
No use to hide away the light.
Get paid to go so far - no matter who you are.
Nobody's gonna run and there's no one to blame,
We're under the gun and feel no shame,
It's never gonna end - the legion of the damned...

I've listened to preachers, I've listened to fools,
So many saints, so many rules...

It's gonna be - cold day in hell,
If ever reason'll break the spell.

Somebody's gonna die in a desperate fight,
No use to hide away the light.
Get paid to go so far - no matter who you are.
Nobody's gonna run and there's no one to blame,
We're under the gun and feel no shame,
It's never gonna end - the legion of the damned...

They don't understand,
I know who I am...
8. Here Today, Gone Tomorrow (4:13)
Call it a day, close down the front,
What you don't own, that's you don't want.
Hitchin' a ride to the land of "A lot",
Please everyone, feel like a slot.
You gonna choose, from a pack of lies,
Which one will close somebody's eyes.

You gotta jump over somebody's head,
You better watch it every step.
It's kind of tricky without safety net.

Here today, gone tomorrow,
From time to time it changes the state of mind.
Here today, gone tomorrow,
If you could get another life, your tears will dry?
You'll see it passin' by...

Claim to the top, make it all real,
Crash everyone under your wheel.
Give it a shot, do it at your best,
Conscience is clear, put it to rest.

Something is wrong, something won't flow,
Feel like dressed up and no place to go,
Stop buggin' me, now when you've failed.
You're talkin' fair and out on bail,
But every coffin needs a nail...
9. Bad Blood (3:56)
I used to be kind of an easy guy,
I tell you now you've sort of crossed the line.
I've been in town and you've called the names,
You better run back home and get brand new face!

Bad times lost and good times won.
Things will get ugly, you've all alone,
You will never see the dawn.
I don't care, cos' I'm bad to the bone...

Bad blood breakin' your heart,
I'm gonna track you down,
You knew it right from the start.
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
All we got is just a bad, bad blood...
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
Because you're trapped in the middle,
Now you're fallin' apart.
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
All we got is just a bad, bad blood...

You want me down crawlin' on my knees,
You wanna watch me suffer slowly by degrees,
Hard hittin' stuff, but it won't make me crack,
You wanna fight, you'll get a bang for the buck.

Bad blood breakin' your heart,
I'm gonna track you down,
You knew it right from the start.
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
All we got is just a bad, bad blood...
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
Because you're trapped in the middle,
Now you're fallin' apart.
Bad blood breakin' your heart,
All we got is just a bad, bad blood...
10. Epilogue (6:00)
Sailin' away - alone in the ships of time,
Wanderin' bout the past - stayin' lost in line.
Never ending story of both night and day,
Everything's been lost along the way...

Over the years all the friends I've had,
Rushed to settle down before they died.
In the darkest hour - screams into the night,
Everyone's who never seen the light.

Someone's lost and someone's found,
Someone's movin' 'round and 'round.
Someone's pushin' all the way and hit's the ground.
Someone's came and someone's gone,
Someone's livin' on the run.
Someone's made it, someone's not,
To see the dawn...

Minute by minute, hour by hour's gone,
Left me alone, kept twistin' me 'round and 'round.
Every single piece of me will cry for help,
Do I have to take that final step?

Someone's lost and someone's found,
Someone's movin' 'round and 'round.
Someone's pushin' all the way and hit's the ground.
Someone's came and someone's gone,
Someone's livin' on the run.
Someone's made it, someone's not,
To see the dawn...
