Dirty Fingers Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-02-20)
1. Hiroshima (4:30)
They still remember
The day when Little Boy dropped from his womb.
They still remember
How their homes became their children's tombs.
Their suffer mourn each soul who died that August morning
Why don't we listen, why don't we need the warning?

Hiroshima
The place where innocence was burned.
Hiroshima
The memory makes my stomach turn.
Hiroshima
The world should truly feel the shame.
Hiroshima
The place where facing death became the way of life.

So many children have been born
Who cannot read or write.
They cannot speak
They cannot hear and some have lost their sight.
Adults with infant minds don't know the reason why.
For they were in their mothers' wombs
When death fell from the sky.

Hiroshima
The place where innocence was burned.
Hiroshima
The memory makes my stomach turn.
Hiroshima
The world should truly feel the shame.
Hiroshima
The place where facing death became the way of life.

The rest of us should learn a lesson from their sorrow
So we can stop it all happening tomorrow.

Hiroshima
The place where innocence was burned.
Hiroshima
The memory makes my stomach turn.
Hiroshima
The world should truly feel the shame.
Hiroshima
The West, the West must take the blame.

Hiroshima
The place where innocence was burned.
Hiroshima
The memory makes my stomach turn.
Hiroshima
Men came to shadows where they stood.
Hiroshima
This grain of evil brings no good.

No, no.
No, no, no, no, no.
No, no, no.

3. Bad News (5:06)
Bad news ain't no use.
So keep your thoughts to yourself.
You're sad excuse, subject for abuse.
Gotta throw you back up on the shelf.
I never lied, I never tried
I gave my love to your wholesale.
And when the times start looking good
It never seems to fail.
You bring me bad news.

I'm off the roof, loving you.
This time you made your last mistake.
I cut loose from running news.
They strangle every breath I take.

I never lied, I never tried.
I gave my love to your wholesale.
And when the times start looking good
It never seems to fail.
You bring me bad news.
I'll write the news from now on, honey.
Yeah, yeah.

A, na, na.
I'm off the roof, loving you.
This time you made your last mistake.
I've broken loose from running news.
They strangle every breath I take.

I never lied, I never tried.
I gave my love to your wholesale.
And when the times start looking good
It never seems to fail.
You bring me bad news.

Looks like I'm writing the news from now on, honey.
Yeah, never fails.
You bring me bad news.
That's right.
Ooh, no news is good news, for me to say.
Yeah, no news, good news blues.
Oh, yeah.
I never lied.
Bad news, bad news, bad news.
Yeah, hooh, never fails.
4. Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood (3:37)
Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad.
Don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel.
When things go wrong, it seems so bad.

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And sometimes it seems all I do is worry
And then I show my other side.

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

If I seem edgy, I want you to know
That I'd never mean to take it out on you.
Life has its problems and I get my share
That's one thing that I never mean to do.
'Cause I love you.

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

If I seem edgy, I want you to know
That I'd never mean to take it out on you.
Life has its problems and I get my share
And that's one thing I never mean to do.
'Cause I love.

Oh baby, don't you know I'm human
And have thoughts like any other one.
And sometimes I find myself alone
Regrettin' some foolish things that I have done.

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.

'Cause I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.
No, no, no, misunderstood.
Oh yeah, yeah, don't let me be misunderstood.
Please don't let me be misunderstood.
5. Run to Your Mama (4:44)
One, two
One-two-three-four.

You've got to be mean, you've got to be tough
You don't need none of that pity stuff.
You got to be hard or else you'll be done.
You have to take care of number one.
Don't come to me if you're out on the street.
I'll only tell you to get up on your feet.
Don't come to me if you feel you are through
'Cause I don't have the time to listen to you.

Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.

You've got to be smooth, you've got to be rough
You don't need none of that pity stuff.
You got to be cruel, forget bein' kind
Or else they'll just take it and leave you behind.
Don't come to me if you're down on the ground.
If it's problems you've got I don't need you around.
Don't come to me if your luck is in doubt
'Cause I won't even listen, I'll just kick you out.

Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me, yeah.

Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me.
Run to your mama
But don't come crying to me
Yeah, yeah

Run to your mama
Don't you come crying to me.
Run to your mama
Don't you come crying to me.
No, no, no, no.
Run to your mama
But don't you come crying to me, no.
6. Nuclear Attack (5:11)
No, no, no.

Out on the streets they're all living in fear.
You can hear their hearts pound as the moment draws near.
One push of a button is all it would take
To dress the world in black.
One fault in the system, a fatal mistake
And you never come back from a nuclear attack.

The Russians are ready, the U.S. is armed.
They try and tell us there's no cause for alarm.
If you think you can live like a rat in a sewer
Might stand a chance to stay alive.
No one can say, no one knows for sure
Just who will survive a nuclear attack.

You ain't never coming back, no
From a nuclear attack.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
Yeah.
Oh.

Oh, yeah.
Look out.

Out on the streets they're all living in fear.
You can feel their hearts pound as the moment draws near.
You won't know what's hit you, it'll happen so fast
Won't be the time to even scream.
You'll just be burned up by the heat of the blast
A thing of the past in a nuclear attack.

Nuclear attack
You ain't never coming back
Ain't never coming back, no.
No, no, no.
From a nuclear attack, oh.
You ain't never coming back
In a nuclear attack, ah.
Oh, no, no, no.
Ah.
7. Kidnapped (3:50)
I'm falling for your sweet face
Then lonely I'll be gone.
Don't know what I'll be doin'
Somehow I think it's wrong.
Been hosting like a gangster
Just tryin' to hide the clues.
But the way I feel, I can't believe it
I didn't even make a move.

I just wanna be kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
If you dare.
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.

It must be a conspiracy
Your fiendish mind has planned.
No ransom note, no blackmail letter
No evidence at hand.
I can try to run, I can try to hide
I can pass right out, commit suicide.
But baby, it's no use for me
You won't be denied.

I just wanna be kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
If you dare.
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.

It's easy in this place and time
So easy to get trapped.
With a woman like you and a gift like that
I just wanna be kidnapped
Kidnapped, kidnapped.

It's easy in this place and time
So easy to get trapped.
With a woman like you and a gift like that
I just wanna be kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
If you dare.
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.

I'm just kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
If you dare.
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.

I'm just kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
If you dare.
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.

I'm just kidnapped
And every time I see your face
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
I don't know what do do
If you dare
I'm just kidnapped
You've got a hold of the reason
'Cause you're stealing my love
Looks like the plan is due
And I swear you don't care

I'm just kidnapped
Kidnapped, kidnapped, kidnapped
Tied and gagged and bound to the chair
kidnapped, kidnapped, kidnapped
If you dare
I'm just kidnapped
'Cause you're stealing my love
And I swear you don't care.
8. Really Gonna Rock Tonight (3:50)
I've been waiting such along time, baby
To find a woman just like you.
Come on over to my place, baby

9. Lonely Nights (3:58)
I don't know what's wrong with you.
Baby, baby, what you tryin' to do.
Well, I gave you my love
But that wasn't good enough for you.

I thought we had a love so strong.
And baby, baby, how you proved me wrong.
Well, I'm so confused,
I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

And it's just another lonely night (lonely night)
I'm all by myself.
It's just another lonely night (lonely night)
You're with someone else
When you should be with me.

Life was so easy when our love was new.
But times change, and I'm so blue.
Well, you gave me your love
Then you turned around and said we're through.

I crawled for miles on my hands and knees.
Just to hear you whisper: baby, please.
I need you so bad,
I'd do anything to be with you.

But it's just another lonely night (lonely night)
I'm all by myself.
It's just another lonely night (lonely night)
You're with someone else.

Oh, just another lonely night.
Oh, just another lonely night.
Oh, just another lonely night.
Oh, just another lonely night.

And it's just another lonely night
I'm all by myself.
It's just another lonely night
You're with someone else.

It's just another lonely night (lonely night)
I'm all by myself.
It's just another lonely night (lonely night)
You're with someone else.

Just another lonely night (lonely night)
All by myself.
Just another lonely night (lonely night)
You're with someone else.
10. Rest in Peace (5:58)
He sees her face in the mirror.
But as he turns, she starts to fade.
He hears her footsteps behind him.
But when he looks, she's gone again.

He hears her voice in the darkness.
As he awakes, she calls his name.
He sees her shadow on the wall
And counts her tears in the falling rain.

She has passed away
A long, long time ago.
Why she haunts him to this day
He'll never know.

Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.

Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.

Rest, rest in peace.
You have gone, please leave me alone.
Rest, rest in peace.
You must go, heaven is your home now.
