VENOMOUS SLANG

I SEE THE BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON LIKE SUNSETS

I GUESS NOTHING LASTS FOREVER

SO GIVE ME THE HIGHLIGHTS

DON’T SPARE ME THE LOWLIFES

JUST GIVE ME THE MAMBA

 

VAMPS

JOYLESS VAMPS OUT ON THE STREETS

DRAINING POWER OUT FROM WHOEVER THEY MEET

KILLING PARTIES WHEREVER THEY GO

ALWAYS CLAIMING TO KNOW MORE THAN YOU KNOW

 

CRAZED BY THEIR SINGLE MISSION

TO BORE YOU INTO SUBMISSION

YOU’RE A VAMPIRE

IN A JOYLESS EMPIRE

 

YOU’RE A HEATWAVE MELTING SMILES OFF FACES

LEAVING MIRAGES IN THEIR PLACES

UNAFRAID TO DRINK UP STRAIGHT FROM THE JUGULAR

BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU TO REMAIN POPULAR

 

YOU’RE A VAMPIRE

IN A JOYLESS EMPIRE

 

BRAINWAVES

FOLLOW THE LIGHT INTO MY EYES

ELECTRONIC PULSES TRIGGER INVOLUNTARY SIGHS

I’M NOT SAD, I’M JUST FRUSTRATED

MY MIND IS STRONG BUT KINDA OVERRATED

FULL OF SECRET THOUGHTS

ON THEIR WAY TO SECRET DESTINATIONS

IF I KNEW WHERE THEY WERE GOING

THERE WOULD BE SOME COMPLICATIONS

IT’D GET REAL AND I’D HATE FOR IT TO GET REAL

 

OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND

 

EVERY 20 SECONDS IT RELATES TO SEX

YOUR GUESS IS AS GOOD AS MINE

OF WHAT I’LL THINK OF NEXT

IT’S UNREAL HOW THEY MOVE IN CIRCLES

GOING NOWHERE

DREAMING WHILE IN CONVERSATION

PRETENDING LIKE I CARE

 

BUT IT'S AUTOMATIC FOR ME

AND IT’S AUTOMATIC FOR YOU TOO

 

OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND

 

ELECTRONIC PULSES FROM A SYNTHETIC GLOW

IT’S IN OUR ATMOSPHERE, TAKE DRUGS TO GO SLOW

INTO OUTER SPACE, TO FIND INNER PEACE

TO FIND YOUR SECRET THOUGHTS HAVE SECRET POLICE

YOU THINK YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW

BUT NOW YOU KNOW

BIONIC ACTORS IN AN IRONIC SHOW

 

BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES

 

OH OUR

OH OUR

OH OUR

OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND

 

DAGGERS

BELIEVE IN MAGIC, BELIEVE IN GOOD LUCK

BELIEVE IN A SPECIAL PLACE AND TIME

YOU MIGHT SLEEP, YOU MIGHT SLEEP FOREVER

YOU MIGHT BE AFRAID YOU WON’T WAKE UP

 

BELIEVE IN FATE, BELIEVE IT CAN GO YOUR WAY

MAYBE SUGGEST THAT THE GODS AGREE

WHILE YOU GO AND WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS

I’M GONNA SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

 

NO NO NO I WON’T SLOW DOWN

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

 

BELIEVE IN LOVE, BELIEVE IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU

SEEMS LIKE YOU COULD BELIEVE IN ANYTHING

MIGHT EVEN CONVINCE A FOOL TO MESS AROUND AND BELIEVE IN YOU

 

NO NO NO I WON’T SLOW DOWN

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

DEAD AHEAD I SHOOT DAGGERS ACROSS THE DESERT

 

OCEAN FLOOR

INK BLUE OCEAN, MAKE A DREAM OF ME

LEAVE A MYSTERY

ERASE MY MEMORY, SINKING PEACEFULLY

UNTIL SHARKS DEVOUR ME

NOT A RIPPLE ON THE SURFACE

NOT A BREAK UPON THE SHORE

NO ONE REMEMBERS ME ANYMORE

 

DON’T BOTHER ME

I’LL SLEEP ON THE OCEAN FLOOR

 

MAGIC POTION, MAKE A FOOL OF ME

FOR ALL TO SEE

AND THEN DELIVER ME TO THE BELLY

OF THE DEEPEST SEA

YOU SAY GET A GRIP BABY

NO ONE’S BORN FROM CHASTITY

I SAY DON’T WE ALL WANT TO ESCAPE QUIETLY

 

DON’T BOTHER ME

I’LL SLEEP ON THE OCEAN FLOOR

I’M NOT DEAD ANYMORE

 

I’M GOING TO DROWN IN THE POTION

I’M GOING TO DREAM IN THE OCEAN\

I’M GOING TO DROWN IN THE POTION

I’M GOING TO DREAM IN THE OCEAN

 

DON’T BOTHER ME

I’LL SLEEP ON THE OCEAN FLOOR

I’M NOT DEAD ANYMORE

 

THE LIAR

I SENSE IMPENDING DOOM

COMING FROM THE TV IN MY TOMB

 

I LISTEN TO THE LIAR

I ANSWER TO THE LIAR

 

IT CAN READ MY MIND MAKE ME DECIDE I WANT TO TRY

TO GIVE IT UP, TO GIVE IT UP

I WILL GIVE UP ANYTHING FOR FEAR

 

TURNS ME ON TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER

I’M ADDICTED TO IT, I’M A REAL GO GETTER

 

I LISTEN TO THE LIAR

I ANSWER TO THE LIAR

 

IT CAN READ MY MIND MAKE ME DECIDE I WANT TO TRY

TO GIVE IT UP, TO GIVE IT UP

I WILL GIVE UP ANYTHING FOR FEAR

 

IT CAN READ MY MIND MAKE ME DECIDE I WANT TO TRY

TO GIVE IT UP, TO GIVE IT UP

I WILL GIVE UP ANYTHING FOR FEAR

HOT STENCH OF EMPTY PLEASURE

LIVE TO LOSE, LIVE TO FIGHT

LIVE FOR RECKLESS LEISURE

THE PARTY DIED FOR YOU DECADES AGO

BUT IN THE AFTERMATH, YOU NEVER LET GO

SCAVENGED SCRAPS OF IT IN THE AFTERGLOW

 

GLOOM TOMB

WHERE DO WE BELONG?

STRANGERS IN EVERY TOWN

TO GET TO BABYLON

WE BURNED THE BRIDGES DOWN

TELL ANOTHER JOKE WE’LL BE LAUGHING SOON

WHILE WE ALL GO WALTZING TO OUR DOOM

 

AND ALL THE WHILE, SHE’LL PRETEND NOT TO CARE

 

SHE WON’T BREAK A SWEAT IN TAKING BACK THIS CASUAL EXCESS

SO IF YOU’RE FEELING KINDA GUILTY IT’S A GOOD TIME TO CONFESS

TO THIS MESS, WE’RE IN

 

SO MANY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

CHASING AMERICA’S DREAMS

FOLLOWING FOLLIES TO EXTREMES

THE RICHES FLOW UP INTO THE HILLS

WHERE THE PARTY’S EXCLUSIVE

AND THE FOLKS ARE VAPID AND STRANGE

 

AND ALL THE WHILE, SHE’LL PRETEND NOT TO CARE

 

SHE WON’T BREAK A SWEAT IN TAKING BACK THIS CASUAL EXCESS

SO IF YOU’RE FEELING KINDA GUILTY IT’S A GOOD TIME TO CONFESS

TO THIS MESS, WE’RE IN

 

AND ALL THE WHILE, SHE’LL PRETEND NOT TO CARE

OH WHEN I WAS A YOUNG MAN

GOT IT TATTOOED OH

OH ON THE BACK OF MY HAND

SO I COULD NOT FORGET

OH THAT PLAYING WITH FIRE

WAS THE ONLY WAY I

I COULD EVER BE SATISFIED

 

DOOMED

DON’T TELL ME I’M DOOMED

JUST TO BE CRUEL

ALL BECAUSE I’M NOT LIKE YOU

I’LL PUT YOU ON YOUR BACK

I’LL TAKE YOU TO SCHOOL

AND I’LL REMIND YOU

YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE

AN OFFER YOU’D BE A FOOL TO REFUSE

SO DON’T REFUSE

 

YOU CAN’T LOOK AWAY

THE THRILL OF NO CONTROL

A CAR CRASH FROM THE PAST

HAS COME TO TAKE IT'S TOLL

 

DON’T TELL ME WE’RE FINE

JUST TO BE KIND

WE WON’T GET FAR IF WE FOLLOW YOUR RULES

WE WON’T TRAVEL INTO SPACE

CONNECT ALL THE DOTS

ACT LIKE WE’VE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE

AN OFFER WE’D ONLY BE FOOLS TO REFUSE

SO WHY REFUSE

 

WE CAN’T LOOK AWAY

THE THRILL OF NO CONTROL

A CAR CRASH FROM THE PAST

HAS COME TO TAKE IT'S TOLL
