1. Ghost (feat. Ian Astbury & Izzy Stradlin) (3:35)
Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul
Rock 'n' Roll
Rock 'n' Roll
Rock Rock

Wipe the blood from your Halo
open wound that you hide your shadow's pride
Spit in the face of the ugly clown
Who'll hunt you down
But you can't hide
Exterminate the future

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul
Rock 'n' Roll
Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul
Rock 'n' Roll

Whispers of the future
Broken meth in your skull with a hook in your smile
Exterminate the future

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul

You can't run from the future
You can't change the past
You're not that fast

You can't run from the future
You can't change the past
Not that fast

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul

Kill the ghost
That hides in your soul

Kill

Rock 'n' Roll
2. Crucify The Dead (feat. Ozzy Osbourne & Taylor Hawkins) (4:04)
The fire started long ago
The flames burned out, still embers glow
So charred and black
There's nothing left to burn, to burn

We had the same dream
Lived life to extreme
A loaded gun jammed by a rose

The thorns are knots around your head
Your ego cursed you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you're dead, yeah

The future is unset in stone
Decisions past leave you alone
Betrayed us all with your own selfish greed, your greed, yeah

New soldiers now say
That your beggars collect
Re-crucified and paid by you

The thorns are knots around your head
Your ego cursed you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you're dead, yeah

We were like brothers with the world in our hands
You always have too much to say
Someday you look back and you wonder why
You let it all slip away, yeah

[SOLO]

Crucify the dead
Crucify the dead

The thorns are knots around your head
Your ego cursed you till you bled
You cannot crucify the dead
To me you're dead, yeah
3. Beautiful Dangerous (feat. Fergie) (4:38)
I don't know who you are now
Mystery drenches my brain
I wanna jump deep into your cloud
'Cause something tells me it's gonna rain

[Bridge:]
I hear the thunder thumping
And my heart starts jumping
And that's when I spin on the pole
Now my head's exploding
And your gun is loaded
So I'm guessing I'm on a roll
Well it's a fine time
Looking for a wine time man
And you said, "Baby, you ready to play?
Well, come ride on this roller coaster
'Cause it ain't over, it ain't over."

[Chorus:]
Rebel of this party
I'm in love with all your danger, danger
We can live forever
I can be your pagan angel, angel
Beautiful dangerous

You like it smooth like brandy
Savour the flavour with delight
You can be Sid, I'll be Nancy
'Cause sometimes it's more fun to fight

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus 2x]
4. Back From Cali (feat. Myles Kennedy) (3:37)
Woke up this morning all alone
I got a ringing in my head
I couldn't take it anymore today
She left me here for dead
Ohh Woah yeah yeah...

And it should come as no surprise
I shoulda known it from the start
The lights are faded and I can't deny
This place ain't got no heart

Oh if you can hear me tonight
If you can hear me tonight

You'll have to carry me back from Cali
I'm tired and broken and I lost my way
You'll have to carry me back to where I belong
You'll have to carry me back from Cali
I don't want money, I don't need no fame
You'll have to carry me back to where I belong

I got to leave this angel city
But I can't do it by myself
So if you please, mama, can you save me
Before I blow this life to hell

Ooooooo
Mama, grab me by the feet and just drag me home

You'll have to carry me back from Cali
I don't care if you think I'm to blame
You'll have to carry me back to where I belong
You'll have to carry me back from Cali
The angel city where the devils play
You'll have to carry me back to where I belong

Yeah...
If you can hear me tonight [x4]
I've lost my way, I'm so alone
And all I want is to come home
5. Promise (feat. Chris Cornell) (4:40)
The first time I ever saw you
You had that far away look in your eyes
And heaven's eyes shined down upon you
And the whole room filled up with light

Now the cruel world it's gonna try and change you
Try to hang you up and mess with your pride
Now the rich just try to chain you
You got to keep your fire burning inside

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

Now sometimes the world tries to slap you
And it seems to love watching you fall
I wont lie to you, it's gonna happen
You got to pick yourself up and move on

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

[SOLO]

Which star will I be thinking of tonight
Tonight
Which star will I be thinking of tonight
Tonight

Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire
Promise me
You won't let them put out your fire
Put out your fire

Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)
Promise me
(Why don't you)
6. By The Sword (feat. Andrew Stockdale) (4:52)
With the horses that you ride,
And the feelings left inside,
Comes a time you need to leave all that behind,
Well they claim they'd like to know,
And they'll fight you there to go,
And they're gatherin' around for all the show,

Well there is a reward,
To live and die by the sword,
Well they tried to complicate you,
But you left it all behind,
All the worldly possessions,
Are left for recollections,
And finally it's all gone!

They're releasing all the hounds,
What is lost can still be found,
When you're walking with your fear down on the ground,
Well there's those who choose to run
Following the setting sun,
And now it seems the journey's has begun,

Well there is a reward,
To live and die by the sword,
Well they tried to complicate you,
But you left it all behind,
All the worldly possessions,
Are left for recollections,
And finally it's all gone!

With the horses that you ride,
And the feelings left inside,
there's a time you need to leave it all behind,

Well there is no reward,
To live and die by the sword,
Well they tried to complicate you,
But you left it all behind,
All the worldly possessions,
Are left for recollections,
And finally it's all gone!
7. Gotten (feat. Adam Levine) (5:02)
So nice to see your face again
Tell me how long has it been
Since you've been here (since you've been here)?
You look so different than before
But still the person I adore
Frozen with fear

I'm out of love but I'll take it from the past
All out of words 'cause I'm sure it'll never last

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
And I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before

Maybe it's the bitter wind
A chill from the Pacific rim
That brought you this way (that brought you my way)
Do not make me think of him
The way he touched your fragile skin
That haunts me everyday

I'm out of love but I can't forget the past
I'm out of words but I'm sure it'll never last

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
And I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before
Like I never been gotten before

So nice to see your face again
But tell me will this ever end?
Don't disappear

And I've been saving
These last words for
One last miracle
But now I'm not sure
I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me
Like I never been gotten before
Like I never been gotten before
8. Doctor Alibi (feat. Lemmy Kilmister) (3:09)
I went to see the doctor
He said you're pretty sick
You got some real bad habits
You'd better stop right quick

I said doctor that's real bad news
Don't know what I'm gonna do

Doctor
There's nothin' wrong with me
Doctor doctor
Can't you see
Doctor
I ain't gonna die
Just write me an alibi

I went to see a shaman
He said you'll be alright
Just keep doin' what you love
Every single night

I said that's what I need to hear
(?) my childish fears

Doctor
(?)
Doctor doctor
My oh my
Doctor
You're the one for me
That's the mojo that I need

Don't you know that I feel alright
Doin' what I do
I ain't gonna tow the line
http://www.elyricsworld.com/doctor_alibi_lyrics_slash.html
Not till' I turn blue
All I got is one short life
That's what people say
And I ain't gonna waste a second
Doin' what you say

*solo*

I won't be the one you like
I won't be the boy next door
I won't be the chosen one
That's not what I'm here for
I don't like the way you are
I despise what you hold dear
Don't you try to make me change
I'll haunt you for a thousand years

Doctor
Don't you (?)
Doctor
Don't you (?)
Doctor
Stay away from me
Sick is what I'd rather be
Doctor
Doctor doctor death
Doctor
Doctor out of breath
Doctor
I ain't gonna die
Just write me an alibi
9. Watch This (feat. Dave Grohl and Duff McKagan) (3:47)
Instrumental
10. I Hold On (feat. Kid Rock) (4:16)
I feel your comfort in my dreams
Unprotected silent screams
A light beyond your shadow beams
Still I don't know what it means

When seasons change
Memories remain

[Chorus:]
I hold on because I won't let go
Even though I know there's solitude below
I hold on because I can't let go
And I refuse to let the hands of fate unfold
I hold on

And when the darkness turns to day
I won't let you drift away
Conscience fades and some let go
But I hang on cause I know

When seasons change
Memories remain

[Chorus]

I hold on because I won't let go
Even though I know there's solitude below
I hold on because I can't let go
I refuse to let the hands of fate unfold

No, no

I refuse to let the hands of fate unfold
I hold on
I hold on
I refuse to let the hands of fate unfold
Oh, I hold on
11. Nothing To Say (feat. M. Shadows) (5:26)
We seem so lost and jaded
Well what a price to pay
Fear can be overstated
And you seem infatuated
with finding who's to blame

While it can seem so hard now
I got a feeling we ain't meant to live this way

Don't tell me it's too late
Cause I feel it too, we all love to hate
And let others lead the way

Some searching to find
That love with a new piece of mind

And still we march further away
Singing our songs of yesterday
While so much still stands in our way
Voices with nothing to say

Some feel that life's a favour
While some don't have the time
Wash up and kiss the alter
All hail the mighty father
but love will keep you blind

Same questions we keep asking
Won't hear the answers cause we're scared of what we'll find

We try and compensate through our troubled faith that should keep us safe
And keep searching for a sign

Some searching to find
That love with a new piece of mind

And still still we march further away
Singing our songs of yesterday
While so much still stands in our way
Voices with nothing to say

There wont be another day, no changing of the seasons
And no one's gonna save us from the lies.

The greatest story ever told
Is only what you make it
There will be struggle and fear
All by design

And still we march further away (We've been so logicated)
Singing our songs of yesterday (Nothing's got all the point, the blame?)
While so much still stands in our way (Yeahhhh!)
Voices with nothing to say
12. Starlight (feat. Myles Kennedy) (5:26)
In the distance
Light years from tomorrow
Far beyond yesterday
She is watching
Heart aching with sorrow
She is broken, as she waits

Hoping when all is said and done
We learn to love and be as one

Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna find a place where we belong
(where we belong)
And so you know, you'll never shine alone

There are shadows sleeping on the horizon
Leave us scared and so afraid
As the fallout of a world divided
It brings her tears and so much pain

And so we take cover from the dark
Hoping to find where we can start

Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna find a place where we belong
(where we belong)
And so you know, you'll never shine alone

Starlight, we'll find a place
Where we belong, we belong

You will see as the mountains fall and turn to dust
That there's one thing that won't change
I believe there is something within each of us
That always stays
That will always remain
As long as love never fades

Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna make it right before tomorrow
Oh Starlight, don't you cry
We're gonna find a place where we belong
And so you know, you'll never shine alone

Starlight we'll find a place
Where we belong, we belong

She is watching
Heart aching with sorrow
She is broken, as she waits
13. Saint Is A Sinner Too (feat. Rocco DeLucia) (3:28)
Hold my hands down
So they don't

In case you don't know
A saint is a sinner too

Blind my eyes so they
So I can't see

What coming for you
Is coming for me

I hear the choir sing
Calling me on back to you

And I forget now just what I'm supposed to do
When a saint is a sinner too

I hear the choir sing
Calling me on back to you

And I forget now just what I'm supposed to do
When a saint is a sinner too
A saint is a sinner too

Hold hold my hands down
Hold my hands down

I don't reach
I don't reach
So I don't reach for you

Oh oh
A saint is a sinner too
14. We're All Gonna Die (feat. Iggy Pop) (4:33)
Gee, I really like your tits
I'll say anything that fits
We carry our vision
Wherever we go
If you keep your mouth shut
It's still gonna show

We're all gonna die
So let's get high
We're all gonna die
So let's be nice
I'm in the mood
So let's intrude
Pee on the ground
And jump around

I'm getting sick of paying bills
I need my doctor, I need my pills
We carry our women
Wherever we go
If you keep their mouth shut
They're gonna moan
(Mhm)

We're all gonna die
So let's get high
We're all gonna die
So let's be nice
I'm in the mood
So let's intrude
Pee on the ground (heh heh)
And jump around

Life is demanding
But I'm just a bum
And if I respect it, boy
I feel dumb!

[SOLO]

We're all gonna die
So let's get high
We're all gonna die
So let's be nice
I'm in the mood
So let's intrude
Pee on the ground
And jump around

We're all gonna die!

(We're all gonna die)
[Laughing]
(We're all gonna die)
(I wanna, I wanna, I wanna whip it out and pee on the ground!)
(We're all gonna die)
15. Sahara (feat. Inaba Koshi) (3:59)
(Hey Hey Hey....)

Noises from the street
Stains on the wall
Secretly meeting behind it all
Voices from the heart
Heat on the velvet skin
Classic dancer's sign
Lighting up the sky

Sorry, I don't remember anything about you (anything about you)
Everything is gone now
And I'll set you free (I'll set you free)
(Oh) What I made of
Just looking like a loser to me

(Hey Hey Hey....)

I know it was you who fell asleep first
There was nothing new breaking the silent peace
You know it was me all talking no action
I just wonder why you stayed with me

Sorry, I don't remember anything about you (anything about you)
Everything is gone now
What am I gonna do? (What can I do?)
(Oh) This time it's got me down
Baby I've gotta see you through
(Ohhh Yeah!!)

(Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Some kind of jealous guy but I was never losing my mind (losing my mind)
Whatever it took inside, I wanted to tie you down and make you mine

(HEY!! YEAH!!)

(Oh) Sorry, I don't remember anything about you (anything about you)
Blown up and gone now
Ain't nothing new (Ain't nothing new)

(Oh) Can't do this anymore
Lying to myself
I can't let go... about anything about you (anything about you)
Everything is ruined
Got nothing to lose (nothing to lose)
(Uh) Gotta let you know
You're the only one to save my soul

(Hey Hey Hey....)
