Stay Hungry Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Stay Hungry (3:03)
ARE YOU FEELING THE FIRE?
ARE YOU READY TO EXPLODE?
ARE YOUR DREAMS AND DESIRES
RIDING DOWN AN OPEN ROAD?
I'M LIKE A RUNAWAY
A HEART WITHOUT A HOME
OTHERS CAN LAUGH AND PLAY
I'LL FIGHT FOR EVERY INCH I TAKE
I'M DESPERATE TO THE BONE

STAY HUNGRY
FEEL THE FIRE
STAY HUNGRY
DON'T EXPLODE
STAY HUNGRY
WITH DESIRE
STAY HUNGRY YOU'RE ALONE

BE THE HUNTER AND THE HUNTED
KEEP YOUR TARGET IN YOUR SIGHT
DON'T BE SIDE TRACKED OR SHUNTED
LET PRETENDERS FEEL YOUR BITE
AND IF YOU START TO SLIDE
NEVER SHOW YOU'RE WEAK
DON'T FEEL YOU'VE GOT TO HIDE
REMEMBER WHAT YOU'RE FIGHTING FOR
REMEMBER WHAT YOU SEEK

STAY HUNGRY
FEEL THE FIRE
STAY HUNGRY
DON'T EXPLODE
STAY HUNGRY
WITH DESIRE
STAY HUNGRY YOU'RE ALONE
ALL RIGHT!

IF YOUR FIRE IS FADED
AND YOU CAN'T FEEL IT NO MORE
IF YOU'RE TIRED AND OVERRATED
LET ME SHOW YOU TO THE DOOR
EXPECT NO SYMPATHY
THERE'S NONE TO BE HAD
OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE
THERE'S NO ROOM FOR THE WANNABEES.
THE HAS BEENS OR THE BAD

STAY HUNGRY
FEEL THE FIRE
STAY HUNGRY
DON'T EXPLODE
STAY HUNGRY
WITH DESIRE
STAY HUNGRY YOU'RE ALONE
STAY HUNGRY
FEEL THE FIRE
STAY HUNGRY
DON'T EXPLODE
STAY HUNGRY
WITH DESIRE
STAY HUNGRY YOU'RE ALONE
2. We're Not Gonna Take It (3:38)
OH WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN'T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE

WE'VE GOT THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE AND
THERE AIN'T NO WAY WE'LL LOSE IT
THIS IS OUR LIFE, THIS IS OUR SONG
WE'LL FIGHT THE POWERS THAT BE JUST
DON'T PICK OUR DESTINY 'CAUSE
YOU DON'T KNOW US, YOU DON'T BELONG

OH WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
NO, WE AIN'T GONNA TAKE IT
OH WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE

OH YOU'RE SO CONDESCENDING
YOUR GALL IS NEVER ENDING
WE DON'T WANT NOTHIN', NOT A THING FROM YOU
YOUR LIFE IS TRITE AND JADED
BORING AND CONFISCATED
IF THAT'S YOUR BEST, YOUR BEST WON'T DO

OH.....................
OH.....................
WE'RE RIGHT/YEAH
WE'RE FREE/YEAH
WE'LL FIGHT/YEAH
YOU'LL SEE/YEAH

OH WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT

JUST YOU TRY AND MAKE US
WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT

YOU'RE ALL WORTHLESS AND WEAK
WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE
NOW DROP AND GIVE ME TWENTY
WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT
A PLEDGE PIN
NO, WE AIN'T GONNA TAKE IT
OH YOU ON YOUR UNIFORM
WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE
3. Burn in Hell (4:53)
WELCOME TO THE ABANDONED LAND
COME ON IN CHILD, TAKE MY HAND
HERE THERE'S NO WORK OR PLAY
ONLY ONE BILL TO PAY
THERE'S JUST FIVE WORDS TO SAY
AS YOU GO DOWN, DOWN, DOWN

YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
OH, BURN IN HELL

YOU CAN'T BELIEVE ALL THE THINGS I'VE DONE WRONG IN MY LIFE
WITHOUT EVEN TRYING I'VE LIVED ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE
WELL, I'VE PLAYED WITH FIRE, BUT I DON'T WANT TO GET MYSELF BURNED
TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE, SO I THINK THAT IT'S TIME FOR A TURN

BEFORE I BURN IN HELL
OH, BURN IN HELL

TAKE A GOOD LOOK IN YOUR HEART, TELL ME WHAT DO YOU SEE?
IT'S BLACK AND IT'S DARK, NOW IS THAT HOW YOU WANT IT TO BE?
IT'S UP TO YOU, WHAT YOU DO WILL DECIDE YOUR OWN FATE
MAKE YOUR CHOICE NOW FOR TOMORROW MAY BE FAR TOO LATE

AND THEN YOU'LL BURN IN HELL
HEAR NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
SEE NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
OH, BURN IN HELL
LAY NO EVIL DOWN ON ME
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
SPEAK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
THINK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
OH, BURN IN HELL
PLAY WITH EVIL, 'CAUSE I'M FREE

HEAR NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
SEE NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
LAY NO EVIL DOWN ON ME
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
SPEAK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
THINK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
PLAY WITH EVIL, 'CAUSE I'M FREE
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
HEAR NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
SEE NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
LAY NO EVIL DOWN ON ME
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
SPEAK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
THINK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU
PLAY WITH EVIL, 'CAUSE I'M FREE
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL

HEAR NO EVIL, DON'T YOU SEE NO EVIL
OH, BURN IN HELL
DON'T YOU LAY NO EVIL DOWN ON ME
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
SPEAK NO EVIL, DON'T YOU THINK NO EVIL,
OH, BURN IN HELL
DON'T YOU PLAY WITH EVIL, 'CAUSE I'M FREE
YOU'RE GONNA BURN IN HELL
HEAR NO EVIL, DON'T YOU SEE NO EVIL
OH, BURN IN HELL
DON'T YOU LAY NO EVIL DOWN ON ME
4. Horror-Teria A) Captain Howdy B) Street Justice (7:45)
OH, IT'S SO NICE TO SEE YOU ALL INSIDE MY DREAMY LITTLE WORLD
AND IT'S SO NICE TO BE WITH ALL YOU LOVELY LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS
MAKE YOURSELVES COMFORTABLE
MY PLACE IS SO DEVINE
DON'T YOU THINK I'M WONDERFUL?
SAY YES! YOU'RE ON MY TIME

STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY

DON'T TRY TO LEAVE THE DOORS ARE LOCKED AND ONLY I HAVE GOT THE KEY
FORGET THE WINDOWS THEY'RE NAILED SHUT AND BOARDED UP
SO YOU CAN'T SEE
YOU'LL LOVE THE LIGHT SHOW
OH, I'M SURE YOU'LL THINK IT'S SWELL
WHEN THEY GO OFF
YOUR WELCOME TO MY LIVING HELL

STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY

COME HERE MY SWEET
LET ME HELP YOU WITH THAT
THERE THAT'S BETTER

I'M OVERJOYED AT ALL THE GAMES I'M PLAYING HERE WITH YOU TODAY
BUT I'M SO SAD THE PARTY'S OVER AND WE CAN NO LONGER PLAY
YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING HOME
TO YOUR OWN LITTLE BED
BUT THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE
YOU CAN'T SLEEP WHEN YOUR DEAD

STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY
FROM CAPTAIN HOWDY
STAY AWAY

[B) STREET JUSTICE]

IT HAPPENED
IN THE BROAD DAYLIGHT
SO UNEXPECTED CAME THE KNIFE
A CHILD'S SCREAM
SLICED THROUGH THE AIR,
BUT NO ONE CAME
OR SEEMED TO CARE
NO!
THE MAN'S DESCRIPTION
DID LITTLE GOOD
A LOCAL STRANGER
FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD
THOSE LITTLE KIDS
OHH, HE LEFT BEHIND
WITH THEIR MANGLED LIVES
AND THEIR tortureD MINDS
SINCE HE DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE
THEN DON'T YOU THINK IT'S ONLY FAIR?

CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
LET NO MERCY SHOW
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
DON'T LET HIM GO

THE MAN WAS CAUGHT
AND BROUGHT BEFORE A JUDGE
WHO HAD JUST RETURNED
FROM A THREE DRINK LUNCH
HIS LAWYER SCREAMED "YOU MUST SET HIM FREE"
AND OFF HE WENT
ON A TECHNICALITY
SINCE THE LAW DON'T SEEM TO CARE
THEN DON'T YOU THINK IT'S ONLY FAIR?

CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
WHY SHOULD PARENTS CRY?
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE?

THE MOB ASSEMBLED
SMOKE FILLED THE AIR
AND MARCHED IN ANGER
TO DO WHAT'S FAIR
TO BRING TO JUSTICE
THIS SOULESS THING
AND SHOW THE OTHERS
WHAT EVIL BRINGS
NOW BEFORE YOU SHAKE YOUR HEAD
THINK IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD INSTEAD

CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
TELL ME WHAT YOU'D DO
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
PRAY THIS ISN'T TRUE
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
WHY SHOULD PARENTS CRY
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
HOW MANY HAVE TO DIE
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
WHEN SLIME ESCAPES THE LAW
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
WE'LL EVEN UP THE SCORE
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
LET NO MERCY SHOW
CALL FOR STREET JUSTICE
GET HIM, GET HIM, GET HIM...
5. I Wanna Rock (3:06)

6. The Price (3:48)
HOW LONG I HAVE WANTED
THIS DREAM TO COME TRUE
AND AS IT APPROACHES
I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M THROUGH
I'VE TRIED,
OH, HOW I'VE TRIED
FOR A LIFE, YES A LIFE
I THOUGHT I KNEW

OH IT'S THE PRICE WE GOTTA PAY
AND ALL THE GAMES WE GOTTA PLAY
MAKES ME WONDER IF IT'S WORTH IT TO CARRY ON
'CAUSE IT'S A GAME WE GOTTA LOSE,
THOUGH IT'S A LIFE WE GOTTA CHOOSE
AND THE PRICE IS OUR OWN LIFE UNTIL IT'S DONE

TIME SEEMS TO HAVE FROZEN,
BUT THE MIND CAN BE FOOLED
AS THE DAYS PASS I DISCOVER
DESTINY JUST CAN'T BE RULED
HARD TIMES,
OH HARD TIMES,
FOR THE PRIZE, YES THE PRIZE,
I THOUGHT I KNEW

OH IT'S THE PRICE WE GOTTA PAY
AND ALL THE GAMES WE GOTTA PLAY
MAKES ME WONDER IF IT'S WORTH IT TO CARRY ON
'CAUSE IT'S A GAME WE GOTTA LOSE,
THOUGH IT'S A LIFE WE GOTTA CHOOSE
AND THE PRICE IS OUR OWN LIFE UNTIL IT'S DONE

OH IT'S THE PRICE WE GOTTA PAY
AND ALL THE GAMES WE GOTTA PLAY
MAKES ME WONDER IF IT'S WORTH IT TO CARRY ON
'CAUSE IT'S A GAME WE GOTTA LOSE,
THOUGH IT'S A LIFE WE GOTTA CHOOSE
AND THE PRICE IS OUR OWN LIFE UNTIL IT'S DONE

OH IT'S THE PRICE WE GOTTA PAY
AND ALL THE GAMES WE GOTTA PLAY
MAKES ME WONDER IF IT'S WORTH IT TO CARRY ON
'CAUSE IT'S A GAME WE GOTTA LOSE,
THOUGH IT'S A LIFE WE GOTTA CHOOSE
AND THE PRICE IS OUR OWN LIFE UNTIL IT'S DONE
7. Don't Let Me Down (4:26)
LOOK AT YOU
YOU'RE MY DREAM
ARE YOU ALL THAT YOU SEEM?
NOW YOU HAVE WHAT I NEED
AND WHAT I BELIEVE
DON'T TELL ME YOU'LL LOSE IT
'CAUSE I'LL HAVE TO LEAVE

DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN

WHAT DO I HAVE TO GIVE
UNTIL YOU LET ME LIVE?
YOU'RE ALL THAT I WORK FOR,
BUT THAT'S NOT ENOUGH
DO I HAVE TO DIE TOO
TO SHOW YOU MY STUFF?
WELL, I GIVE YOU MY BEST
SO, WHY DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?
I'M PASSING THE BIGGEST TEST
SO, DON'T CRY
LEND A HAND

DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN

HEAD HELD HIGH
HEART IN HAND
FLESH AND BLOOD MAKE A MAN
IF THAT DISAPPOINTS YOU
WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY?
I DON'T WANT YOU TO HURT
I JUST WANT TO PLAY

DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
NO, DON'T LET ME
DON'T LET ME DOWN
NO, OHH
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
DON'T LET ME DOWN
NO, NO, NO, NO
DON'T LET ME DOWN
NO, OHH
8. The Beast (3:30)
YOU CAN HEAR THE THUNDER
LONG BEFORE THE STORM,
BUT YOU CAN'T HEAR THE LION WHEN HE STALKS HIS PREY
HE'S MOVING LIKE A SHADOW
CREEPING UP ON YOU
AND LIKE A SIREN'S CALL HE'S GONNA HAVE HIS WAY
YOU'D BETTER RUN, FORGET YOUR PRIDE
DON'T MAKE A STAND, JUST STEP ASIDE
IF YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES
DON'T TRY TO PLAY YOU'LL LOSE YOUR STAKES
REMEMBER THIS AT LEAST

IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST

YOU WON'T HEAR A FOOTSTEP
COMIN' UP ON YOU
MOVIN' LIKE A SNAKE HE'S IN COMPLETE CONTROL
THIS KILLER KNOWS HIS BUSINESS
HE IS THE PREDATOR
YOU ARE HIS ONLY TARGET, YOU'RE HIS ONLY GOAL
WHAT WILL YOU SAY WHAT WILL YOU DO?
YOUR WILDEST NIGHTMARE'S COMIN' TRUE
THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN SAY
NO WAY TO CHANGE, HE WON'T DELAY
THIS CAIN WILL HAVE HIS FEAST

IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST

IF YOU PLAY YOU'RE BOUND TO LOSE
DON'T ROLL THE DICE, DON'T TURN THE SCREWS
JUST LISTEN TO THE PRIEST

IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
IT'S THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
9. S.M.F. (3:00)
BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY
NOTHING LIKE THE REST
SEPARATE FROM THE OTHERS
FAILING ALL THEIR TESTS
CAN'T THEY SEE YOU'RE DIFFERENT
SO HUNGRY AND SO LEAN
YOU'RE A WALKING WONDER
YOU'RE A METAL MACHINE
LOOK AND YOU'LL SEE
YOU'RE A LOT LIKE ME

YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.-M.-F.

CAUGHT UP IN THEIR WORRIES
AND TOMORROW'S DREAM
MISSING ALL THE LIVING
MILK WITHOUT THE CREAM
THEY THINK YOU'RE SO FOOLISH
LIVING FOR TODAY
CARING JUST WHAT YOU THINK
NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY
JOIN WITH US
OH, HOW THEY'LL SCREAM AND FUSS

YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.-M.-F.
ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT

WE'RE THE ONES THAT LIVE IT
WE'RE ALL REALLY FREE
AND IF THEY THINK THAT WE'RE SICK
THEN SICK IS WHAT WE'LL BE
SCREAM IT LOUD
KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BE PROUD

YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.M.F.
YOU'RE AN S.-M.-F.
