HOLY ROLLER

Every Sunday mornin'
I see her stumblin' down the line
out from her house of worship
she's looking for a savior to find
she craves a resurection
a pretty boy, a sinner to save
she thinks that god's affection
is something to be given away

with her great big titilations
down to her hypocrisies
gonna find a pure salvation
in every sinner that she meets
Holy Roller baby
Spreads her gospel all the time
Holy Roller baby
From a pulpit so devine
She's raisin' Hell this time
She calls to Him in anger
Will the pleasure ever hide the pain
as she approaches Heaven
that's when she starts to callin' His name
she comes to find a pure forgiveness
and she comes to find a way
she thinks the way you try to find it
it's so easy, you just give it away
Holy Roller baby
Spreads her gospel all the time
Holy Roller baby
From a pulpit so devine
Holy Roller baby
Spreads her gospel all the time
Holy Roller baby
From a pulpit so devine
She's raisin' Hell this time


AMERICAN DREAM

Well I, love a country that's in decay
We fell asleep and then we lost our way yeah yeah
We turned a profit selling our souls
This lie, that we're passing down to the kids
That Uncle Sam aint really hit the skids no no
Your pretty asset fell in a hole
American dream
Your huddled masses want a fantasy
American dream
Your pure abundance is a fallacy
American dream
Getting fat on your happy meals
You hide the hunger and the shady deals yeah yeah
You never thought the tables would turn
You got burned, when you trusted the masters hand
You felt entitled but it's all a scam yeah yeah
Your melting down the pennies you earned
American dream
Your aging muscles are in atrophy
American dream
Its time to wake up to reality
American dream

My country 'tis of thee
Sweet land of lust and greed
Land where my father's died
For all our rascist pride

You lied, only piss ever trickles down
Another king is yearning for the crown yeah yeah
Another circus coming to town
Your stucco castle burned to the ground
American dream
Don't try to legislate morality
American dream
While you were piling up the casualties
American dream
Fear and consumption is your legacy
American dream
Your fat and happy in your agony
American dream....American dream
American dream...American dream
American dream


HARD ROCK HELL

Say we're ugly, look so mean, but we're more honest than you've ever seen
Don't have red lips, don't make the scene, I'd rather hang at Raji's and the Scream
Try to do it with roots, don't tuck my pants in my boots
Ya know I'm never teasin' up my hair
I know the meaning of soul, and rock when I roll
This dirty business isn't fair

Hard rock hell, never did sell
Lipstick metal with a candy shell
Hard rock hell, never could tell
If I looked pretty, I'd sell
But I'm in Hard rock hell

We look too gritty, with a melody sweet, and the two it didn't go along
It sure felt shitty, to admit defeat, but my integrity is going strong
Took some rhythm and blues, washed it down with some booze
But the powers didn't understand
But they wanted it slick, so dress up like chicks
So we told 'em you can suck our.......

Hard rock hell, never did sell
Lipstick metal with a candy shell
Hard rock hell, never could tell
If I looked pretty, I'd sell
But I'm in Hard rock hell

Don't sell no records, don't break no ground, I hope my music doesn't make you hurl
But shit bands thrive, and Bon Scott dies, there aint no justice in the music world
But we gobble the fluff, when they play it enough
'Cause it sells don't really make it good
Because you found fame, you're musics still lame,
It doesn't move me like it should

Hard rock hell, never did sell
Lipstick metal with a candy shell
Hard rock hell, never could tell
If I looked pretty, I'd sell yeah
Hard rock hell, never did sell
Lipstick metal with a candy shell
Hard rock hell, never could tell
If I looked pretty, I'd sell yeah, can't tell yeah, oh well yeah
I'm in hard rock hell


PRISONER OF LOVE

So sad, you got me in a prison, got me fallen under your spell
Cut bad, I'm feelin' the incision, got me burnin' hotter than hell
So let me be, and set me free, and let me find another woman to love
I know, you'll never show me mercy so I'm a callin' to the good lord above

I'm just a prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner of love
This girl has got me blind
Locked up my heart and mind
I'm just a prisoner of love

One cell, has got a great collection, the skeletons of love in decay
One cell, has got a pure affection, the melodies my heart used to play
What will it be, I need the key, she's got the shackles on my heart and my mind
This hell, a little Miss Demeanor is still holdin' the confession I signed

I'm just a prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner of love
This girl won't let me be
She'll never set me free
I'm just a prisoner of love

She hid her fangs behind her lips so tenderly
She hides the fist inside her glove
She is a vulture and she circles up above
She wants a prisoner of love

So sad, you had me in a prison, you had me eatin' outta your hand
My bad, I made a deep incision, and now your six feet under the sand
I traded pain, for bars and chains, but now I know just how your spendin' your time
I know I'm losing all my freedom, but it's better than just losin' my mind

I'm just a prisoner of love
I'm just a prisoner of love
I'd rather make you pay
and waste my final days
Than be your prisoner of love
I hope you had your fun
I see what I've become
A different prisoner of love


IN MY MIRROR

In my mirror, I see a man that's great, and
In my mirror I see a man I hate
I see reflections of a journey
I see the roads both low and high
'Cause in my mirror I see the subtle truths that live within the lies

In my mirror I see the moon and stars
I see the pain and pleasure, I see the joy and scars
I see the grace and gentle mercy
I see the burdens of the load
'Cause in my mirror I see the lips that mouth the words of tortured souls

I see reflections, and the light of honest decay
I see illusions meltin' away
I see corrections, and the demons I need to slay
I see 'em in my mirror everyday

In my mirror I see the blood and guts
I see a gentle spirit, I see a man that's nuts
I see the complicated turnings
Of the wheels gone done the road
And in my mirror I see a man who seeks to come in from the cold
And in my mirror I see the growth and evolution of my soul
And in my mirror I see a preacher in the church of Rock n Roll


ONLY A MEMORY AWAY

When you lose someone that used to be your morning
Or you lose someone that used to be your sky
And your wonderin' how you'll ever face the longing
And your running out of tears that you cry
Just remember that your heart it has a memory
In an instant they are back by your side
You just go inside and look for the feelings
'Cause that person they will live deep inside
You can bring back your love in an instant
It's only a heartbeat away
In the darkness of fear
A light will appear
The light of the souls gone away
CHORUS: 'Cause they're only a memory away Yeah they're only a memory away
And whenever you choose They're right there with you
They're only a memory away....everyday

Well you never dreamed that you could be so lonely
You're afraid to close your eyes late at night
But remember that is where you'll find your treasure
In your dreams is where your spirit will fly
Well the achin' in your heart it has a purpose
It reminds us all to cherish the prize
'Cause your life is just a simple string of moments
The connections they don't break when ya die
You can bring back your love in an instant
It's only a heartbeat away
In the darkness of fear
A light will appear
The light of the souls gone away
CHORUS

Well the hole inside your heart it holds a candle
It's a place that you should always hold dear
It's a hole that represents a pure abundance
And it's light it will brighten the fear

'Cause they're only a memory away Yeah they're only a memory away
And whenever you choose They are right there with you
They're only a memory away
Yeah they're only a memory away Yeah they're only a memory away
And the love that you lose
Is right back with you
They're only a memory away.....everyday, everyday, everyday


DRAMA QUEEN

She takes everything you're sayin', turns it into a game she's playin'
She can't handle peace, she's hatin' harmony
Cold coffee, she pitched a hissy, bad waiters got her all pissy
She takes moments, turns 'em into tragedies

Drama Queen, the fuse is lit and now it's burnin' up fast
Drama Queen, this too shall pass.

She thinks she is vim and vigor, but everything pulls her trigger
Loves to act like everyones her enemy
There isn't a thing she's ownin', she's nothing but piss and moaning
Never smells the stench of her own debris

Drama Queen, now your reactors hittin' critical mass
Drama Queen, this too shall pass

She thinks every conversation, is always an accusation
Thinks her bitchin' sounds just like a symphony

Drama Queen, the fuse is lit and now it's burnin' up fast
Drama Queen, this too shall pass.
Drama Queen, now your reactors hittin' critical mass
Drama Queen, this too shall pass....so kiss my ass.


IS YOUR CRAZY, GETTIN LAZY?
 
Used to suck back a beer for breakfast, necessary grease for the gears
Used to roll up your joints while drivin', while you let the passenger steer
But your stones aint a rollin'
Used to drive like it's stolen
Well ya used to gobble pills, now you're payin' all your bills
Is your crazy, gettin' lazy?
Used to guzzle wine, now you're sober all the time
Is your crazy, gettin' lazy? Oh yeah
Used to hang with the pimps and strippers, bikers, hookers, hustlers, queers
Now lookin' a bit more timid, ya traded in your circle of peers
Gettin' shot by the homies
Ripped it up like a rodeo
Well ya had a million tricks, just to get another fix
Is your crazy, gettin' lazy?
Used to snort a thousand lines, got it up a second time
Is your crazy, gettin' lazy?
Learned the latest dance, just to get into her pants
Did your crazy, turn to lazy?
Now your sittin' home, jerkin' off and all alone
Guess your crazy, just got lazy? Oh yeah
Now your countin' your carbs at dinner, do you think you stripped all the gears?
Do you play for the saints or sinners? Do ya know? Do ya know? Do ya KNOW!?
Used to love to drive at one hundred twenty five
But your crazy's gettin' lazy
Kickin up the dust, has only turned to rust
Is your crazy, gettin lazy?
Following the rules, dropped your daughter off at school
Guess your crazy's, gettin' lazy
Learned the latest dance, just to get into her pants
Is your crazy, gettin' lazy? oh yeah

THE GIRL'S ROCKIN'

Gotta girl who is rockin', keeps me crawlin' under the sheets
She's smart and funny and dirty girl, always knocks me offa my feet
I got it bad..I got it good, cause she's the hottie of the neighborhood
I never had, I guess I never could, a better motor under the hood
She's a long tall Sally and a Miss Molly Too (the girl's rockin', the girl's so rockin')
Hookin' up in the Valley was too good to be true (the girl's rockin', the girl's so rockin')
Lookin' up through the curtains and I knew I was through (the girls' rockin', the girls so rockin')
Got a brand new piercing, she did with her eyes of blue.

'Cause she's Rockin', so rockin'
The Girl's rockin'...the girl is rockin' and it feels so good yeah

She's a lady in public, but when you get her offa the street
A burnin' hunger with an appetite, a spicy little something to eat
I got it bad, I got it good, that little something make me feel so good
The shoulda coulda's and the never would's, knocked me over right where I stood

Was a whole lotta shakin' up until she was mine (the girls rockin', the girl's so rockin')
And the noise she was makin' was a blowin' my mind (the girl's rockin' the girl's so rockin')
All the love she was fakin', was a wastin' her time (the girl's rockin', the girl's so rockin')
While her heart was achin', I was waitin' for a sign

'Cause she's Rockin', so rockin'
The Girl's rockin'...gettin' it bad, gettin' it good, the girl is rockin' and it feels so good

Gotta girl who is rockin', never going back to streets
She's smart and funny and a dirty girl, always knocks me offa my feet

Was a whole lotta shakin' up until she was mine (the girl's rockin', the girl's so rockin')
All the time I was wastin', I couldn't get her off my mind.

'Cause she's Rockin', so rockin'
The Girl's rockin'...gettin' it bad, gettin' it good, the girl is rockin' and it feels so good

'Cause she's Rockin', so rockin'
The Girl's rockin'...gettin' it bad, gettin' it good, the girl is rockin' and it feels so good


OWN WORST ENEMY

Well I...never seen such a tragedy
Ya never pick the right direction
Ya fall for any broken toys affection
I.....never seen such a mystery
Ya always lookin' for confection
but now your mind is warpin' your selection
Cause your picker's outta line
And your wastin' all your time
You're your own worst enemy
All the lovers that you had
Dontcha know it makes me sad
You're your own worst enemy
Now I....used think you're a debutante
and as I watched your heart get broken
Believing every word that player's spoken
Cry.....every night as you fall asleep
Ya always look in wrong directions
as your trying to find the right connections
When it comes to love your blind
And now your gonna lose your mind
You're your own worst enemy
But your lover's aint your friends
And then you hang on to the end
You're your own worst enemy


Well I.....hope ya get everything ya want
It's time to make a course correction
It's time to try and find a real connection
And I... think that love aint a mystery
But your life it gets much sicker
when you're follwing that broken picker
And I know it makes you sad
All the broken hearts you've had
You're your own worst enemy
And it's much to plain to see
That your chasin' fantasy
You're your own worst enemy
When it comes to love your blind
And now your gonna lose your mind
And the one you will despise
When you give away the prize
Is your own worst enemy


DIRTY WATER

My callous hands, they turn to fists
My hard earned cash, it turns to piss
That devil liquor got me
Pulled me down into his hole

That dirty water's got me drowning
Dirty water's swallowing my soul

It turned my car, into a ditch
It turned my girl, into a bitch
It's clogging up my filter
All my dreams have washed away

That dirty water's got me cryin'
Dirty water's drowned another day
That dirty water's got me lyin'
Dirty water's gonna make me pay

Oh oh oh Dirty water.....oh oh oh gonna make pay

It takes my mind, and kicks my ass
And now my mouth, is spewin' trash
I'm running with the Devil
To that Honky Tonk below

That dirty water's cloudy
Now that dirty water's drownin' me real slow
That dirty water's wants to choke me
Dirty water's hand around my throat

It takes you down, so pure and slow
have another round, my good man Joe
My glass is my companion
and she never let's me know

That dirty water's out to get me
Dirty water's cancelin' the show
That dirty water never let's me, dirty water never let's me go

So take these words, from this here source
'cause if I could, I'd change my course

Please dirty water dontcha take me
Dirty water don't foresake me
