Tangled in Reins Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Loaded Mutha (5:43)
I ain't got time to listen, you found me a little too late
Sittin' around hearin' all this bullshit is turning love to hate
You said I was the black sheep, and I feel I've committed a crime
But living with you is like livin' in jail, and I'm tired of doing time
Kick it!
Huh! Whoa...!
They say that I've turned crazy on the wrong side of the tracks
Put a switch blade in my hands, hung the Devil on my back
Yeah, I'd lie steal and cheat, babe, to get the fill I need
And if you stand in my way I'll cut you to the bone
And leave you down there to bleed - sing it!
Would you sell your Mother? Would you sell your Brother?
Yeah I'd sell 'em all to fly high
In the line of fire - in the line of fire - can you get much higher
Oh I give a little, take a little, make a little, sell a little
I can never get enough so

[Chorus:]
Get out, oh I'm a Loaded Mutha, yeah a shotgun between your eyes
Stay out, no, I need no other, I got the Devil by my side
Riding this wild horse yeah, I'm tangled in its reins
I've grown scared of tomorrow, yesterday's in my veins
See the snake bites so quickly, the venom runs so deep
Now I'm holdin' on while I'm in God's hands as the poison lays my soul to sleep
Now years are melting faster, habit is my master
Oh I give a little, take a little, make a little, sell a little
A stone cold sinner in love, so

[Chorus]

Tied down behind closed doors, walk out like you did before - get out!

[Solo]

I'm a scared lonely teen with a crazed disease
Got the Devil inside that I have to please
I lost my way in the winding turns
I'm salting wounds, it's my soul that burns
I tried to buy back the life I've sold, but not alone, I can't stop cold
Oh God help me now, take me in your arms and show me how
chorus...
Oh the devil - get out - oh Lord have mercy, mercy, mercy...
Take me, take me, take me take me take me in your arms...
2. Sticky Side Up (4:32)
Standin' on the front line, a bullet in my head
Run a bad luck highway mile, ridin' the rails naked and dead
Sins of the flesh, seasons of the witch
Ain't nobody gonna scratch my itch
Spin another lie and tell me it's alright, yeah it's alright
It's ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

[Chorus:]
Smooth side down, sticky side up
Watch me drown in your lovin' cup
Nail me to the floor, roll me in the rug
Smooth side down, sticky sticky side up
Scratchin' on the back door, ringin' in my ears
Hang dog on a ball and chain, gettin' high on the Devil's tears
Give me a shovel, I'll dig my own grave
Rooster go pimpin' for some other slave
The knife's in my back, smile and tell me it's alright, yeah it's alright
It's ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

[Chorus]

Smooth side down, sticky side up
Watch me drown in your lovin' cup
Nail me to the floor, roll me in the rug
Smooth side down, sticky sticky - sticky sticky side

[Solo]

(Oh yeah) Smooth side down (oh smooth it up, baby, that's right)

[Chorus 2x]

Smooth side down, sticky sticky, sticky sticky, sticky sticky side up!
3. Electric Love Child (6:27)
People say she's from another time, got a neon heart, got an X-ray mind
Oh, a spiritual attraction
Two black eyes painted on her face, just one look'll lay your soul to waste
Oh, a ritual reaction
Let my dreams run away, tell me baby, tell me baby that you're gonna stay
Touch my body, crush my soul, love
Sweet Electric Love Child, Sweet Electric Love Child
Little girl wanna stay so high, reach down and touch the sky
Oh sunshine again
Aw my sugar gonna shoot the moon
Dancin' in an old cartoon on the windowpane
Trip the lights, drift away
Tell me baby, tell me tell me what you wanna say - what d'you wanna say?
Touch my body, crush my soul, oh baby, I'm in love love love love...
Sweet Electric Love Child, Sweet Electric Love Child

[Solo]

Sweet Electric Love Child, Sweet Electric Love Child
Oh honey, child, oh sing it, huh
Sing it baby, oh child, yeah baby, oh, oh my my my my...
4. Late for the Party (4:17)
Call me black, call me white, call me anything you like
Just don't call me late for the party
Everybody's jammin', jacked up for a ride
The leather's breakin', skirts are shakin', we're feelin' good tonite
Over in the corner, standin' all alone
A sweet young lady, lookin' like she may be hungry for a bone
Yeah rockin' down the house, screamin' thru the halls
Everybody won't be happy 'til we're tearing down the walls
So come on, and hold on, the party's never, ever, gonna stop

[Chorus:]
Call me black, call me white, call me anything you like
Just don't call me late for the party
Keep it hard, keep it clean, chase it down with gasoline
And don't be late for the party
The band is crankin' louder, the guitars in my brain
The bass is thumpin', the drums are pumpin', it's drivin' me insane
I must be going crazy, my feet can't feel the floor
Gonna swan dive in the punch bowl, and go swimmin' for the door
Yeah burnin' down the house, screamin' thru the halls
Everybody won't be happy till this fucker falls
So come on and hold on, the party's never, ever, gonna stop

[Chorus]

C'mum mum mum, kick it good, melt that sugar like a honey should
Work it in and out, slide it up and down, shake that sugar to the ground
Ow c'mumm mum mum little piece of pie, fill my cup till the well runs dry
Now c'mon, an' hold on, the party's never, ever, gonna stop

[Solo]

(Call me black, call me white, call me anything you like
Just don't call me late for the party)

[Chorus]

Yeah let your honey move ya, let your honey groove ya
Everybody, everybody shake
Call me black, call me white, call me anything you like
Just don't call me late for the party, yeah!
5. All Your Love (6:53)
Gave me your heart, gave me everything you had
When I was down and needed you the most
Showed me love when I knew not what love was
You shared your laughs and kissed away the tears
You're my life, you're the hand that leads me through
Forever, baby, I'll keep on loving you
I would crawl for a million miles, just to kiss the lips that made me smile
Oh, that made me smile
I was blind, I was on the run
The night has a thousand eyes, a heart but one, oh, the heart but one
I just melt when your eyes meet mine
Oh the thought of holding you, oh just the thought of

[Chorus:]
It's all your love (it's all your love) that keeps me hanging on (hangin' on)
I count the days without you by my side
It's all your love (it's all your love)
That keeps my dreams alive (dreams alive)
And girl I can't thank you enough
For all your love
Tell me, child, will you love me when I grow old
Will your tender touch be the same?
'Cause your heart means to me a world of gold
And without you, baby, I'd be lost and cold
You make me feel like a superman
I could take on the whole world with just one hand, oh, just one hand
Girl, you make me feel so alive
I could climb the highest mountain and touch the sky, oh, yes I can
I can't wait to make love tonight
Just the thought of holding you, oh just the thought of

[Chorus]

[Solo]

[Chorus]

It keeps me hangin', keeps me hangin' on
It's all your love that keeps me hangin' on
It's all your love (it's all your love) that keeps my dreams alive
And girl I can't thank you enough for all your love
6. Love 'Em and I'm Gone (5:38)
Sweet little thing you take the breath outa me
My heart of lust craving fantasy
Let's roll around in mud and play in the sand
A one night stand, yeah a dream come true
Skin on skin, feel my love for you
I'll spin you upside down, turn you inside out - yes
So baby don't fight it, don't hide it, you got it and I want it
We'll make them stockings run and punch for overtime (don't fight it)
When we make love deep inside the oven, we'll melt in honey (melt in honey)
Sweet little thing I ain't selling no lies
I'll make your dreams come alive
Rock me, hold me, love me, touch me, ooh yeah, I love 'em and I'm gone
Kissed me once, now kiss me twice
Cross your fingers and roll them dice
Well babe, (S.O.B.) (slide over bitch), your ass is mine
So soft and frail with a doubt in her eyes
I feel my blood pumpin' and my soul cries
Can't stop now 'til the cookins' done
Yeah baby don't fight it, don't hide it, you got it and I want it
(Don't fight it, don't hide it)
We'll burn rubber 'til your heels fall off
And then some, honey (then some, honey)
I'll slide on home, baby don't you cry
And when I'm done I'll hang you out to dry

[Chorus:]
Rock me, hold me, love me, touch me, ooh yeah, I love 'em and I'm gone
Take me, shake me, squeeze me, please me, ooh yeah, I love 'em and I'm gone
Well now boys, kick my ass!

[Solo]

Yeah just give me a little, a little, yeah I want it all, yeah that's it
Slow it down, baby, slow it down, I like it slow, like it real slow
Yeah, we gotta make it last
chorus
Come on little darlin', take me in your hands
We'll drown inside your world, I'll be your lovin' man
I'll do anything that you want me to... [to fade]
7. Take Me Back Home (4:43)
Every step we take is the hard way
We try to build an empire all in just one day
But if we take a breath, and take a look around
Are we missing things, are both feet planted on the ground
Sometimes we forget who we are
We take our chances much too far
Can I find the time to show this heart of mine (a little sunshine in the rain)
Oh, it's so hard to see, what we've grown to be
We fight this world alone, yeah, and turn a life to stone

[Chorus:]
Take me back home, the place where we belong
Where all our hearts still roam, now take me back home
The grass is always green on the other side
We climb the walls to find out to ourselves we lied
Oh we fight so hard to make a stand
We try and fit the world in the palms of our hands
Oh we're searching for a piece of mind
But the world has put money in your hands and made us blind
Will I reach the light, that leads me through my life
(Sometimes I hear the angels sing)
Will I find the road, to ease my heavy load
Make the right turn, yeah, not to crash and burn

[Chorus]

Yeah I still can remember, how we used to be
Just a couple of little crazy kids, runnin' through the streets
Now I can't change the future, I can only feel the pain
I'm holding on, breath by breath, hiding from the rain

[Solo]

[Chorus]
8. Steelheart (5:43)
Stone drunk and crazy I was running from his gun
Caught me in the corner with that look of death, said you ain't my fuckin' son
I said man, are you crazy? Let go of my hand
Just because you put me in this world, doesn't make you understand
You're a 16 year old punk, you think you know it all
You still got dirt underneath your nose, for your Mama you still call
Hey Boy, can you hear me? I want you to get out
Go out and fight the world like I did and learn what life's about
No, no, no, no, I won't come easy
Look at yourself Boy, ain't nothing but a dirty bum
Do nothin' all day just play that guitar, and hang around with all the scum
Your hair's down past your shoulders, I can't even see your eyes
You're lookin' at me but I can't even tell
Whether or not you're sellin' me lies
You think it's been so easy, never took time out to see
I've been standin' for years lookin' for love
But your bottle's your friend, not me
Are you deaf? Can you hear me? I'm knockin' on your door
When the sun goes down I'll be on the tracks, won't see my face no more
No, no, no, no, I won't come easy
Cause Daddy, I'm just like you, I've got a steelheart
Yeah, you threw me to the lions to fight 'em all alone
Like you do, I have to suffer, to find, find, find, find my way home
Yeah I know I will survive, somehow I'll find a way
Live or die I'll make a stand no no no no matter what they say
Bring on the world now, I'm down and ready to fight
I've grown stronger than dynamite
You can throw me down and kick me, but you're never gonna see me run
I'll pick myself right back up and load my guns

[Chorus:]
I'm a one man army, a two man fight
I got a steelheart and I'll die for my right
I'm a one man army, a two man fight
I got a steelheart and I'll die
I've been sleeping in the doghouse, I shower in the rain
I fought through all the fire, no no no I feel no pain
So take me as I'm now, I'm down and easy to fight
I've grown stronger than a pit bull's bite
You can throw me down and kick me, but you're never gonna see me run
I'll pick myself right back up and load my guns

[Chorus 2x]

Yeah, I got a steel, I won't come easy, no
I won't come easy, I won't come easy
Steel, steel, steel, steel, steelheart

[Solo]

I'm a one man army, a two man fight
And I'll die, die for my right
A one man army, a two man fight
And I'll die with a stealheart
9. Mama Don't You Cry (5:49)
I fight the tears since you've been gone
And I stand in fear, can I make it on my own
Without your love to guide me thru my life
It's so cold at night without you here
And those gentle arms that held me close and dear
Oh we're all the same, we all live and die
You'll always be in my heart, oh Mama don't you cry
You'll always live in my dreams, oh Mama don't you cry
Every night when I close my eyes
I see a light and shadows of your face
It's always there like an angel over me
So many frozen years hangin' on my wall
A thousand words, I can hear them call
Oh I tried so hard but I could never say goodbye
You'll always be in my heart, oh Mama don't you cry
You'll always live in my dreams, oh Mama don't you cry
No one can kiss away the pain like you
No one like Mama, no one like you

[Solo]

You'll always be in my heart, oh Mama don't you cry
You'll always live in my dreams, oh Mama don't you cry
(You'll always be in my heart, oh Mama don't you cry - don't you cry)
(You'll always live in my dreams) in my dreams (Oh Mama don't you cry)
Oh Mama don't you cry
10. Dancin' in the Fire (3:48)
Dancin' in the fire!
Sneaking around like a lost hungry hound
Shaking her love in the wrong place wrong time
She needs satisfaction
Yeah, she hides to be runnin' wild and free
But the ring on her finger is welded down to the bone
And it's driving her crazy
Oh honey child have your lost your mind, does your fantasy burn
The chair is slippin' your noose hangs tight, will you ever learn

[Chorus:]
Dancin' in the fire but the ice is melting slow
Holding on too tight and she just can't let it go
Heat is coming on, she could see it in his eyes
Dancin' in the fire
She hangs the key behind the back door light
So the dirty dog can slide in and out of her love
Little girl craves candy
Turns on her big brown eyes and little Mary cries
When her tongue twists and turns, the alibis run dry, a damn good liar
Oh hungry child, has it crossed your mind, what kind of life you've sown
Champagne on ice, the sugar and spice has lost your way back home

[Chorus]

Dancin' in the fire

[Solo]

Dancin' in the fire

[Chorus 2x]

Dancin' in the fire!
