Different Kind of Truth Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles (2017-01-14)
1. Tattoo (4:44)
(Tattoo, tattoo)

[Intro solo]

I got Elvis on my elbow
When I flex Elvis talks
I got hula girls on the back of my leg
And she hula's when I walk

Speaking cherry red
Screaming electric green
Purple mountains' majesty
You can talk to me
Talk to me babe!

Swapmeet Sally
Tramp stamp tat
Mousewife to Momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo
(Tattoo, tattoo)

(Tattoo, tattoo)
Show me your dragon magic
(Tattoo, tattoo)
So autobiographic

Best believe that needle hurts you
Best to see these true colors than follow one of your false virtues

Tell you a secret to make you think
Why is this crazy stuff we'd never say poetry in ink?
Speaking day-glow red, Explodo opaque
Purple mountain's majesty
Tell me you, I'll show you me

Swapmeet Sally
Tramp stamp tat
Mousewife to Momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo
(Tattoo, tattoo)

Woo!
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Sexy dragon magic
(Tattoo, tattoo)
So very autobiographic
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Got a hold on me
(Tattoo, tattoo)
You put a spell on me-eehh

Baby-yeeaahh

[Solo]

Uncle Danny had a coal tattoo
He fought for the unions - some of us still do
On my shoulder is a number of the Chapter he was in
That number is forever like the struggle here to win

Everybody!
Swapmeet Sally
Tramp stamp tat
Mousewife to Momshell in the time it took to get that new tattoo
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Tattoo, Ta-ttoo!

(Tattoo, tattoo)
Sexy dragon magic
(Tattoo, tattoo)
So very autobiographic!
(Tattoo, tattoo)
You got a hold on me
(Tattoo, tattoo)
You put a spell on me
(Tattoo, tattoo)
I'm in love with you
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Show me, show me your
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Look at me, look at you!
(Tattoo, tattoo)
Whoa!
2. She's the Woman (2:57)
A little low on cash
but I'm high on luck.

I wanna be your knight in shining pick-up truck

with a Chevy for my summer home.
Let's get the party started.

It's looking like the city towed
my other apartment.

She got a doorbell sign that said:
"bring it or don't ring it."

She's the woman (Go on:)
She's the woman
She's the woman
She's the woman

Fate is my pimp
but she was cool.

(I) said If you're doin' business with me, honey
what does that make you?

Some Casablanca gin joint?
You're a nervous wreck.

Your I.Q. plummets fourteen points.
Her thunder thong around your neck.

The song ain't dirty
it's really just the way we sing it. (Sing it:)

She's the woman (Sing it:)
She's the woman
She's the woman
She's the woman

[solo]

She wanted something to regret
tomorrow morning.

This suburban garage-a-trois
was worth exploring.

Yeah dreams come true
but it remains to be seen.

By the time mine usually do
it's no longer me!

She got a doorbell sign:
"you better bring it, or don't ring it."

She's the woman
She's the woman
She's the woman
3. You and Your Blues (3:43)
Ain’t no Red House over yonder.
No Stormy Monday waits for you.
Ain’t no Midnight Train To Georgia
and I'm not Looking For The Truth.

And I’ll tell you what I’m getting rid of next:
You and your blues.

Yes I am.

Your bad mood's permanent.
Communication Breakdown.
Like watching someone reinvent
their 19th Nervous Breakdown.

Woman, you suffer from a color.
I suffered ‘cause of you.
Now everybody’s suffered
‘cause of you and your blues.

Ain’t goin’ down to no Crossroads.
Ain’t gonna Dust No Broom.
No Evil Woman got a hold on me.
Ain’t Going To Heaven anytime soon.

Your bad mood's permanent.
Communication Breakdown.
Like watching someone reinvent
their 19th Nervous Breakdown.

Woman, you suffer from a color.
I suffered cause of you.
Now everybody’s suffered.

I’m done with coexisting.
This is heavy lifting.
No more growing codependent over you.
And baby while we at it i’ve had it
with you and your blues.

[solo]

Woman, you suffer from a color.
I suffered cause of you.
Now everybody’s suffered.

Woman you suffer from a color
and I suffered 'cause of you.
Now everybody’s suffered.

Now everybody’s suffered
‘cause you and your blues.
4. China Town (3:15)
Headless body in a topless bar.
Warring clans in lowered cars.
A buck is still a buck in Shanghai
and a buck is all you earn.

A great night for all concerned.
Steel fingers play a deadly song.
Whole lotta Shakespeare going on and on and on.

It’s all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
don’t mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

Heroes aren't born, they're cornered
and this corner is where we write the story.
Two tribes warring
downtown after hours.
The best to you each morning.

Can't survive and think to win.
Drugged into sin.
Next episode begins and begins and begins and begins.

It’s all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
don’t mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

It’s all happening downtown.

Welcome to my town, my town, my town!

[solo]

It’s all happening downtown.
You painted daughters of the Tong underground
don’t mess around.

Welcome to China Town.
Well, you're in our town now.
Welcome to China Town.

Welcome to my town, my town, my town!
5. Blood and Fire (4:26)
You can always tell the winners
The saints and the sinners
Down at the starting line
I'm a lucid vision
Of the unforgiven
I'm your wave-tossed guy

King-size repercussions
Trouble by the dozens
The stakes have never been higher

Come back when you're younger
'Cause I can feel the thunder
1-800-IT'S TIME

OOOOOOHHHHH YEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
Now look at all of the people here tonight...

It's a world of fools
That's just what's expected
None of 'em know it
Or even suspect it
God must love the lazy
Shiftless and the crazy
He put so many in line

OOOOOOHHHHH YEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
Now look at all of the people here tonight...

Forgotten empires
Lost victories long past
Every time I bloomed again
I thought it was the last
And then something crazy happens
and... BOOM!
I'm doing the victory dance!

Told ya I was comin' back...
(Told Ya!)
Say you missed me...
(Say it!)
Say it like ya mean it!

[GUITAR SOLO]

You can always tell the winners
The saints and the sinners
Down at the starting line...

OOOOOOHHHHH YEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
We came... we came... we came through blood and fire
6. Bullethead (2:31)
My karma just ran over your dogma.
I can feel your pain.
If everything is coming your way
you're facing the wrong lane.

Bullethead,
bomb the moon until you're crazy dead.
B-b-b-b-b-b-bullethead
got a different kind of truth
Bullethead,
yes you are in danger.
I drive just like you!

How many roads must a man walk down
before he admits he's lost.
And do you really, really drive this way
just to piss me off?

Boldly going nowhere,
trouble busting through.
Yeah, I'm rolling slowly
but I'm ahead of you.

Bullethead,
bomb the moon until you're crazy dead.
B-b-b-b-b-b-bullethead
got a different kind of truth
Bullethead,
yes you are in danger.
I drive just like you!

Well I'm a lovin' the horn baby.
Well I'm a bullethead.
Come-a, come-a, come-a, come on baby
Well I'm a bullethead.

Hurt me!

[solo]

Traffic is giving you trouble?
I can feel your pain.
No light at the end of the tunnel
due to budget constraints.

Some days you're the dog,
some days you're the hydrant.
If everything is going your way
you're facing the wrong lane.

Bullethead,
bomb the moon until you're crazy dead.
B-b-b-b-b-b-bullethead
got a different kind of truth
Bullethead,
yes you are in danger.
I drive just like you!
7. As Is (4:47)
Yesterday I was a bum and broke.
Today I am a star and broke.
In this town that’s called progress,
that’s how we do biz.

I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor.
Rich was better, totally better.
(It) requires a degree of acceptance
as in: "must accept as is."

Drive my search engine home.
Dropped, chopped, Alabama chrome.
Hey what the hell it runs, so…
the day is dunzo
let’s have some funzo.
Your's very truly,
-As Is.

That's how it goes...

How expensive he was
or what was he worth?
Ain't no Brinks truck
following no hearse.

Drive my search engine home.
Droppe, chopped, Alabama chrome.
Hey what the hell it runs, so…
the day is dunzo
let’s have some funzo.
Your's very truly,
-As Is.

This next part should really confuse things.
Everybody let’s stay focused.

Love of the craft
or love of the buck?
Every day down here’s a rainy day.
We don’t save up.

[solo]

A little more volume in the headphones please...

Unspoiled by progress,
"As Is" is how I follow through.
It's not who you squeeze
but who returns once again to squeeze you no doubt!
Love 'em all I says.
Let Cupid sort 'em out!

Drive my search engine home.
Dropped, chopped, Alabama chrome.
Hey what the hell it runs, so…
the day is dunzo
let’s have some funzo.
Your's very truly,
-As Is.

Love of the craft
or love of the buck?
Every day down here’s a rainy day
We don’t save up.

La-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
[repeat]
8. Honeybabysweetiedoll (3:47)
Honeybabysweetiedoll You're the one that I want or I don't want one at all.
Honeybaby My hearts a flame, I'm all up and you're to blame
Honeybabysweetiegirl let me count the ways you rock my world
Stone soul sistah soccer mom, muchacha-miga, cherry bomb

Baby, Lover, Angel Face(s), SatinDoll You Straight Up Aces

I'm a bad little cowboy, Send me to you're room
Let's get started. Let's not stop soon
Rolling like the ocean when the moon is full
I'm a face grenade with the sex pin pulled

Baby, Lover, Angel Face(s), SatinDoll You Straight Up Aces

Honeybabyhampton's (bitch)
kinda lost sorta rich
I dig both don't care which

You're gonna make me crash
You red hot Florida trailer trash
9. The Trouble With Never (3:59)
You often wonder,
you wanna know.
How deep does
the rabbit hole go?

I know you never thought about it
but ask yourself later:
When you turn on your stereo
does it return the favor?

I gotta know!

That's the trouble with never,
(It) sure seems like a mighty long time.
That's the trouble with never.
When was the last time
you did something for the first time?

Hello!

Every Einstein's assigned
a Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dumber.
Any old fool could see,
never even wonder.

Yeah we could come together.
I will call for you.
Hey, never's good for me.
How's never sound to you?

1-800-Tell-Me-Baby!

That's the trouble with never,
(It) sure may be a mighty long time.
That's the trouble with never.
When was the last time
you did something for the first time?

Yeah!
Level with me baby!
Talk to me!

[Solo]

This could
damage your reputation:
my wicked wicked ways,

but maybe I just will
since you put it that way.

Delusions of eloquence?
You never can say.

You wanna play
the game?
You can't quit when you get played.

"Mistakes make people."
Isn't that what people say?

Let's un-plan the moment,
dance the night away.

Selective amnesia
is only a heartbeat away.

A simple question
concerning time:
"Suppose you wait forever
and then you change your mind?"

Oh, No!

That's the trouble with never,
sure could be a mighty long time.
That's the trouble with never.
When was the last time
you did something for the first time?

When was it?
When was it?
Ah, text me baby!

When baby?
Tell me!
When was the last time baby?
Show me!
10. Outta Space (2:54)
Need no polar bear to scare me,
no Eskimo to share with me his fate.

Woo! We outta space

No blog-o-sphere to sell me.
No dolphin needs to tell me.
No starving kid
to make the case.

Counter blast, interstellar facial full.
Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass:
"Go Home. The Earth Is Full."

Outta space, Outta space
Outta space, Outta space

Eighty acres of one stop shopping
has somewhat changed the place.

Woo! We outta space

I do not refuse it.
I am guilty, I do use it.
I am the reason
we outta space.

Counter blast, interstellar facial full.
Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass:
"Go Home. The Earth Is Full."

Outta space, Outta space
Outta space, Outta space

[solo]

Danger rides the web tonight.
Burst mode dynamite.
Spinning up my Facebook page
and I'll ride out towards the outer maze.

The future ain't what it used to be.
Time to change my galaxy in case
we outta space!

Trouble-free Earth despocrats made
Mother Nature piss her pants and when
That's human way.

Counter blast, interstellar facial full.
Bumper sticker on my rocket's ass:
"Go Home. The Earth Is Full."

Outta space, Outta space
Outta space, Outta space
11. Stay Frosty (4:08)
I journeyed to the North
To hear what the preacher said
He said, "your arms are too short to box with God,
Learn these words instead",
Gold tooth reflected,
"My advice is free
There's a trick to Christian values and its compulsory."

Stay Frosty
That's what the preacher man said
Stay Frosty
His words still racket in my head
Can't control your future
Can't control your friends
In a world without end...
Stay Frosty
Stay Frosty now, alright

Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!
Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!

I travelled to the South
The ancient Rabbi appeared to me
Voice heavy with the sands of time, he made me see
"Same as Kabalah Dave but for you it's free
God guides us on our journey
But careful with those feet"

Stay frosty
In a world without end
Stay Frosty
Like the ancient immortals said
Don't want 'em to get your goat
Don't show 'em where it's hid
But that's just what I did
Stay Frosty!
Look out
Stay Frosty!

Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!
Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh!

I journeyed to the East
And I struggled to stay afloat
A solitary Buddhist Monk threw me a rope
Looked me in the eye
And said, "Don't make me say this twice
You want to be a monk, you got to cook a lot of rice"

Stay Frosty
In a world without end
Stay Frosty
Work hard at this my friends
Look beyond the Kung Fu fighting
God is love
But get it in writing
Stay Frosty
Stay Frosty now

I wandered out West
To the California Coast
Where the folks who know about frostiness stay frostiest the most
My brand new landlord proposed me a toast,
"My West Coast host"

Stay Frosty
Chant it like a Mantra
Stay Frosty
And there's nothing you can't handle
Far and wide far as you ramble
Trust in Allah
But tie up your camel, and remember...
Stay Frosty!
12. Big River (3:51)
Wind at my back,
face in the sun.
All my big ideas done.

Big river
rollin’.

Listen to a sea shell
you can hear the sea.
Listen to a beer glass
that river belongs to me.

Big river
rollin’.

There’s a river runs here.
When it rains we flood.
Co-op City first 3 floors
of Charles River mud.

Big river
rollin’.
Oh, yeah!
Big river
rollin’.
Oh, yeah!

Land’s edge,
where the East begins,
the debris meets the sea
when the tide comes in.

Oh, look out!

Look both ways now.

[solo 1]

Big river
rollin’.
Oh, yeah!
Big river
rollin’.
Oh, yeah!

Big river.
Big river.
Oh, yeah!

[solo 2]
13. Beats Workin' (5:03)
Here today, gone later today.
I’ve been reading what the bloggers say.
How about a great big slice for me?
Otherwise or professionally.

Beats workin’.
Startin’ up in my feet.
Goes to workin’
on the rest of me.

Live this life of luxury
sho-nuff beats workin’ for me.
Kid’ll land on his feet
if he don’t land on his seat.

This beats workin’ baby
‘cause I’m red hot
baby like it or not.

Don’t you know that
this beats workin’ baby
‘cause I’m red hot
baby like it or not.

One empty floor
stands between the stage
and the welfare door.

Heads or tails
of the same bread.
Coin of the realm
just like the man said

Beats workin’.
Starting up all in my feet.
Goes to workin’
on the rest of me.

Got a feelin’ all in my head.
Try to do it
like the good book said.
Kid’ll land on his feet
if he don’t land on his head.

This beats workin’ baby
‘cause I’m red hot
baby like it or not.

Don’t you know that
this beats workin’ baby
‘cause I’m red hot
baby like it or not.

[solo 1 & 2]

This beats workin’ baby.
This beats workin’ baby.
This beats workin’ baby
‘cause I’m red hot
baby like it or not.
