01. Demolition Man

Let me loose, I just got back
I was pushed and I got dragged
I tasted mud, I tasted wine
I've kissed the life I've left behind
So say I choose to stick around
I've got news for this here town
I kick the ball, I catch the bus
And raise the roof for all of us

Destination anywhere
So far gone, I'm almost there
Can't you see I can't deny
I'm out of here like I'm on fire

Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
Television newsman so subliminal
Bringing down the walls of wonderland
Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
Here I am, your demolition man

Steal your car and leave a wreck
Kiss your bride, I cash your check
And Tyson plus I'm ripped and torn
Been on the edge since I was born
I kick the jukebox, change the tune
I break the bank and jump the moon
I sink the fleet to catch a buzz
And raise a glass for all of us

Destination anywhere
So far gone, I'm almost there
Can't you see I can't deny
I'm out of here like I'm on fire

Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
Television newsman so subliminal
Bringing down the walls of wonderland
Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
Here I am, your demolition man

I'm a beast in space, I'm an acid taste
I'm a primitive gong stuffed in your face
It's enough to bring you to your knees

Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
Television newsman so subliminal
Bringing down the walls of wonderland
Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
Everything, everyone and all the things I ought to be
Here I am, your demolition man

Living like a caged-up animal, criminal
Television newsman so subliminal
Bringing down the walls of wonderland
Just another highbrow cowboy telling me
Everything and everyone and all the things I ought to be
Here I am, your demolition man


02. Promises

Last night I was blown away
I said a million things I'd never say
I was knocked right down, it got to me
Gonna get me some of your chemistry

You want me to promise you
That everything is true

I won't make promises that I can't keep
I won't make promises that I don't mean
I'll even mean the things I tell you in my sleep, yeah
I won't make promises babe, that I can't keep

Oh my my, I lost control
I told you everything, I said it all
You came right out and said to me
"Gonna get me some of your honesty"

You want me to promise you
That everything is true

I won't make promises that I can't keep
I won't make promises that I don't mean
I'll even mean the things I tell you in my sleep, yeah
I won't make promises babe, that I can't keep

You want me to promise you
That everything is true

I won't make promises that I can't keep
I won't make promises that I don't mean
I'll even mean the things I whisper in my sleep
Oh, let me tell you
I won't say a single thing darling, that you can't believe
You gotta believe me

I won't make promises that I can't keep
Oh baby believe me now
I won't make promises that I don't mean
Oh why won't you believe me now
I'll even mean the things I whisper in my sleep, yeah
I won't make promises that I can't keep
Baby, you gotta believe me


03. Back In Your Face

Hey! Hey! Hey!

I'm back in your face like I've never been away
I'm back in your face and it's where I'm gonna stay
Like a runaway mack, lika a union jack
I'm back

Hey! Hey!
I can stand tall, I can stick out a mile
I can come crawlin' like a hungry reptile

I'm coming' around, I'm wired for sound
Shakin' it for all it's a-worth
I'm a spaced-out alien, a techno-sapien
Crashin' on down to earth

I'm back in your face like I've never been away
I'm back in your face and it's where I'm gonna stay
Like a runaway mack, like a union jack
I'm back

I can pour your drink, be the perfect host
I can scare the pants off the holiest ghost

I'm coming' around, I'm wired for sound
Shakin' it for all it's a-worth
I'm a spaced-out alien, a techno-sapien
Crashin' on down to earth

I'm back in your face like I've never been away
I'm back in your face and it's where I'm gonna stay
Like a runaway mack, like a union jack
I'm back

Back in the middle, back in the ring
Backin' a winner, it's a sure shot thing
Back in your good books I did you no wrong
Here I am honey, I'm back where I belong
Belong, belong, belong.....

I'm back
Well, I'm back
Yeah I'm back
You better believe that I'm back
Now lemme tell you I'm back
Can't you see that I'm back
Come on and do it, I'm back
There's nothing to it, I'm back

I'm back in your face like I've never been away
I'm back in your face and it's where I'm gonna stay
Like a runaway mack, like a union jack
I'm back in your face and don't it feel so good
I'm back in your face and just like I knew that it would
Like a runaway mack, like a union jack
Sheer heart attack and a Jumpin' jack flash
Like a leader of the pack
And as a matter of fact I'm back


04. Goodbye

I've been waiting, goin' crazy
I can't sleep when I know you're not around
I've been saving what you're cravin'
Look at my face I'm about to replace
Every hurt, every tear that you cry

Cause when you feel this strong and you can't go on
There's nothing wrong, just try to realize

You won't ever have to say goodbye
You won't ever have to say "I've wasted all my time"
If the dream you dream ain't what it seems
Just look into my eyes
You won't ever have to say goodbye

I'm just praying, you hear me saying
I'd be there if the sun refused to shine
As the night gets colder I will be your shoulder
I give you my heart until death us do part
Every day, every moment, forever

Cause when the love is strong the feeling's never gone
There's nothing wrong in trying to realize

You won't ever have to say goodbye
You won't ever have to say "I've wasted all my time"
If the dream you dream ain't what it seems
Just look into my eyes
You won't ever have to say goodbye

Cause when your feeling's strong and you can't go on
There's nothing wrong, just try to realize

You won't ever have to say goodbye
You won't ever have to say "I've wasted all my time"
If the dream you dream ain't what it seems
Just look into my eyes
You won't ever have to say goodbye


05. All Night

I like a woman who loves to drive
Loves to do it fast, yeah, above 95
Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh yeah

I love a woman who likes to make me sweat
Who'll come on round lookin' for love, get what she can get
Show me babe what's on your mind

I like a woman who wants to be the star
She'll make a man go further than he's ever been before
(Give it to me)
Show me babe what's on your mind
I wanna feel you one more time

All night, I like it, all night

I want it (give it to me)
Oh, ah, make a little love, baby

All night, I wanna do it

All night, I want to taste you there

You shouldn't wanna do what you wouldn't want me to
You didn't say you wouldn't and you shouldn't but you do

Let's get personal, give it to me

Oh baby, it's showtime, give it to me
Give me baby, give it to me

All night, oh give me love baby
All night, I wanna have ya
All night, I want to taste you


06. Paper Sun

Does it hurt to remember
Does it help to forget
Do you know what you started
When you lit the fuse of regret

There's not a reason why you've come undone
There's nothing left to justify, this can't go on
There's nothing left inside as I walk this broken land

Cause you're living on a paper sun
Blind to all the damage done
Living on a paper sun
Waiting for the tide to turn
Living on a paper sun
You can't hide and you can't run
All your dreams have come and gone
Living on a paper sun

Do you still hear 'em screamin'
And does the fear make you run
Is the anger inside of you
A gift from father to son

I don't believe in you, you've come undone
I don't believe in what you do, this can't go on
I don't believe in you as I walk this broken land

Cause you're living on a paper sun
Blind to all the damage done
Living on a paper sun
Waiting for the tide to turn
Living on a paper sun
You can't hide and you can't run
All your dreams have come and gone
Living on a paper.....

You will discover the way to suffer
And like no other you feed the fire

There's not a reason why you've come undone
There's nothing left to justify, this can't go on
There's nothing left inside as I walk this broken land

Cause you're living on a paper sun
Blind to all the damage done
Living on a paper sun
Waiting for the tide to turn
Living on a paper sun
Waiting for the night
All your dreams have come and gone


07. It's Only Love

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

If you could feel what I feel
If I could make you see
If you could need like I need
I'd be the air that you breathe

You go straight to my head as I lie in my bed
I just can't win
I can't help the state I'm in

It's only love so why is falling in it
The one thing that you can't do
It's only love then why am I hurting from it
It's only love if you're hurting too

Na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na

If you could share my wildest thoughts
Meet me in my mind
If you could want the way that I want
You'd want me all the time

You go straight to my head when I lie in my bed
I just can't win
I can't stop the state I'm in

It's only love so why is falling in it
The one thing that you can't do
It's only love then why am I hurting from it
It's only love if you're hurting too

Every dream I dream has got you in
And every minute with you means everything
I wanna take you there where you've never been
In my dreams

You go straight to my head as I lie in my bed
I just can't win
I can't help the state I'm in

It's only love so why is falling in it
The one thing that you can't do
It's only love so why am I hurting from it
It's only love if you're hurting too

Na na na na na na na na na
It's only love if you're hurting too
Na na na na na na na na na
It's only love if you're hurting too


08. 21st Century Sha La La La Girl

Twenty-four hours of every day
I'd walk on glass just to hear you say
Gettin' it on is like a drug to me
I want you baby, can't you see
I'm crashed and I'm crushed and I'm stuck on you
I'd do anything that you want me to
I'd crawl on my knees just to get to you
I close my eyes and girl it's true

On a psychedelic space machine, galactic sugar high
Like a caffeinated satellite gone way past 99
Come on, be my

21st century girl, all outrageous, quite contagious
21st century, you got solar fire
21st century girl, sweet romancer, cosmic dancer
21st century sha la la la girl

Kiss this, you're blowin' my mind
Never say never, but I'm takin' my time
Girl to the world from the A to the Z
I fall for you so easily
Catch my breath cause I know too well
That I just can't control myself
Realize we synchronize
It's only when I close my eyes

On a psychedelic space machine, galactic sugar high
Like a caffeinated satellite gone way past 99
Come on, be my

21st century girl, all outrageous, quite contagious
21st century, you got solar fire
21st century girl, sweet romancer, cosmic dancer
21st century, she's high on flying

Flying, flying
You take me up, you set me free
No time to breathe, just zero G
High, still flying, no gravity
She's flying

On a psychedelic space machine, galactic sugar high
Like a caffeinated satellite gone way past 99
Come on, be my
21st century girl, all outrageous, quite contagious
21st century, you got solar fire
21st century girl, sweet romancer, cosmic dancer
21st century, high on flying
21st century, sha la la la girl
She's a 21st century, sha la la la girl
21st century, sha la la la girl
She's a 21st century sha la la la girl


09. To Be Alive

I know you don't believe it
Like I believe it
Oh no, it's not your thought
You sit alone inside a room
Wait for the world to come to you
They never do

It must be something that you can't let go
It hurts that you won't let me know
Every time you want to
Any time I touch you
I can't help to be myself
I hold on to this moment
Any time is right to be alive

And then in conversation
I love the way you mention
Nothing's ever gone your way
With a hammer in your hand
You spell out a master plan
We never learn

It must be somebody holding your heart
Something that tears us apart
Every time you want to
Any time I touch you
I can't help to be myself
I hold on to this moment
Any time is right to be alive

And I don't think that it's right
To let love pass by
Any time of life
It's good to be alive

Every time you want to
Any time I touch you
I can't help to be myself
Yes, every time you want to
Any time I touch you
I can't help what I feel
But it sure feels real
I wanna hold on to this moment
Cause babe it sure feels right
To be alive
To be alive
To be alive


11. Guilty

Guilty as sin, yes I confess
I can't deny
Strong in the heart, weak in the flesh
I never meant to do you wrong

I swear the soul gets blistered along the way
But when you hurt the things you love
You gotta know

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
Of those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty, I'm guilty of all the above

Can't hide the truth, I stand accused
Don't ask me why
I question every move and thought I had
That's going on inside

I swear the soul gets blistered along the way
But when you hurt the things you love
You gotta know

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
All those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty
And if it's wrong to feel this right
I can't help it and I won't fight
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty, I'm guilty of all the above

It's not my first offence and it won't be the last
(My lips are sealed)
I would not change a thing except what's in the past

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
All those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty of loving you
If you mean hope (guilty), if you mean fear
(Never said I was innocent)
Wrap your arms around me
If you mean, if you mean love
(And it's you that I want)
And I won't fight
And if it's wrong, it feels right
Guilty, guilty


12. Day After Day

You know me, just look in my eyes
I shed my skin, got a new disguise
My heart still beats and I'm still the same
Do you know my name

It's everything you've ever seen
It's every dream you've broken
It's only when you keep your eyes wide open

Like a circle of light spinnin' out of control
and I just can't let go

Day after day there's a voice deep inside me
Day after day there's the ghost of a lie
Every belief that has come back to find me
Day after day and it follows me blindly
Day after day

I feel you, you're under my skin
You look in the mirror, you know where I've been
My heart still beats but it's not the same
Don't you know my name

I'm always there to keep your eyes wide open

Like a circle of light spinnin' out of control
And I just can't let go

Day after day there's a voice deep inside me
Day after day there's the ghost of a lie
Every belief that has come back to find me
Day after day and it follows me blindly
Day after day

Like a circle of light spinnin' out of control
And I just can't let go

Day after day there's a voice deep inside me
Day after day there's the ghost of a lie
Every belief that has come back to find me
Day after day and it follows me blindly
Day after day

Day after day

Day after day there's a voice deep inside me
Day after day there's the ghost of a lie
Every belief that has come back to find me
Day after day and it follows me blindly
Day after day


13. Kings Of Oblivion

Cold nights, dark days
Love moves in mysterious ways
It's so sweet like a mother's tongue
Whose symphony protects her young
But this truth ain't what it seems
Cause you and I have different dreams
You rise up but you never learn
As we try to shake this sleep that burns

The darkness screams its icy breath
As daylight dies a thousand deaths

Kings of oblivion, deadly and divine solution
Kings of oblivion, welcome to my revolution

Reach out to the past
We blame the victim first and last
Blind faith got you and me
Running like a refugee
We fall out and into the street
To wash the blood out of the sheets
And your pain, it flows like wine
As my subconscious reaps your mind

I stretch to kiss the burning sky
And watch the waking beauty cry

Kings of oblivion, deadly and divine solution
Kings of oblivion, welcome to my revolution

Is it such a crime to watch the sunset for the last time
Until we meet again, goodbye, farewell, amen

Cold nights, dark days
Love moves in mysterious ways
We rise up but you'll never learn
As we try to shake this sleep that burns

The darkness screams its icy breath
As daylight dies a thousand deaths

Kings of oblivion, deadly and divine solution
Kings of oblivion, welcome to my revolution
Kings of oblivion, deadly and divine solution
Kings of oblivion, welcome to my revolution
