Lyrics

Back Door Man

Youíve got a mind made of Devilish stuff
When youíre hungry for more
You canít get enough
Well I ainít your plaything
To do what you choose
Donít wanna be up
Down singing your blues

Donít wanna be no
No I donít wanna be no
Donít wanna be no back door
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man

Say woman donít you think
That Iím worth a bit more
Than a four day week
On your company floor
Donít think youíre gonna push me
Into your neat plan
Donít gimme the key
Iím no backdoor man

Donít wanna be no
No I donít wanna be no
Donít wanna be no back door
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man

If you think Iíll come up crawling
Well thereís plenty more fish I can see
Weíll see whoís begging in the morning
Baby I'm just asking you
To be my one and only
 

Donít wanna be no
No I donít wanna be no
Donít wanna be no back door
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man
Backdoor
Backdoor
Donít wanna be your backdoor man

Your backdoor man
Your backdoor man
Your backdoor man
Your backdoor man
 

Youíve got a mind made of Devilish stuff
When youíre hungry for more
You canít get enough
Well I ainít your plaything
To do what you choose
Donít wanna be up
Down singing your blues
 


Boneyard

If you only know your name
Only got yourself to blame
Donít you know the pipers call leads to doom
In our hearts he beats a drum
Calling us to Kingdom come
And he who pays the piper calls the tune
 

Cause weíre all going down
Weíre all going down
All going down to the boneyard
Yeah weíre all going down
No way that you get out
So step inside and please enjoy the ride

Ey-e-ey-e-ey

Who knows what tomorrow brings
You might be dead
Might be a king
So lets have ourselves a party on the way
Cause youíll soon hear his pipe call
Beckoning you one and all
Heíll smile and say
Youíre welcome wonít you stay

Cause weíre all going down
Weíre all going down
All going down to the boneyard
Yeah weíre all going down
No way that you get out
So step inside and please enjoy the ride

Ey-e-ey-e-ey

Cannons they wonít still my beating heart
I got mine and you got your good start
Cannons they wonít still my beating heart
I got mine and you got your good

Staaaaaart

Repeat chorus


Young Gods

They stand in the shadows with holed out shoes
They got everything to gain and nothing to lose
Theyíre strong hearts alive
They got stars in their eyes
They come from the towns of worn out streets
Where all the tribes dance to all the different beats
But theyíre all the same
Same spirits with a different name
The young gods

Might eighteen maybe just left school
You spend your last dole money on a bedsit room
Thatís the only way
Man you got to live for the day
And when the old men scowl and start to criticise ya
Cause they donít understand what you want in your life
Thatís the same refrain
Always gonna be the same
For young gods

So stand up and fight for your life
No surrender and no compromise
When desire is burning your eyes
Youíre young gods
Youíre young gods

So when ya down hard sure that youíre lifeís a mess
And youíre worried that your place in the human race
Has come apart at the seams
Well hold on to your dreams
You young gods
You young gods

Go

You gotta stand up and be counted
Cause you gotta make your own way


I Ainít Gonna Cry

To wind up sleeping in an empty room
A bottle wine, the smell of cheap perfume
Just makes me think of our yesterdays
Itís hard enough seeing with another man
But Iíve done all the crying that grown man can
And outside they say that itís rain again

Iím no-ones fool and Iíve got my pride
I ainít gonna cry baby
Not even gonna think it over
Donít think Iím gonna crawl thatís just a waste of my time
I ainít gonna cry baby
Iím just another victim of you
And your hurting kind

Do you share your bed with him like you did with me
Sure is a shame but itís no tragedy
Iím not the first and he wonít be the last
So Iím packing up my heart in my suitcase
Gonna hitch me a ride to a new warm place
And start again a much wiser man
 

Iím no-ones fool and Iíve got my pride
I ainít gonna cry baby
Not even gonna think it over
Donít think Iím gonna crawl thatís just a waste of my time
I ainít gonna cry baby
Iím just another victim of you
And your hurting kind

Iím no-ones fool and Iíve got my pride
My pride
My pride

I ainít gonna cry baby
Not even gonna think it over
Donít think Iím gonna crawl thatís just a waste of my time
I ainít gonna cry baby
Iím just another victim of you
I ainít gonna cry baby
Iím just another victim of you
I ainít gonna cry baby
Iím just another victim of you


The Wildside Of Life

I should have taken your ice cream baby
But Iím not made of stone
You melted me instead and stole my heart
Well you really did waste no time
You took me home to meet you mom
Well I tell ya I was gone right from that part

Take me back
To the wildside of life
Take me back
To the wildside of life

I think Iíve found out what I like
I think Iíve finally found my place
I donít wanna be chained and locked and tied
Well I ainít got nothing against you honey
But I gotta get back in the race
Cause if I stay too long Iíll surely feel we died

Take me back
To the wildside of life
Take me back
To the wildside of life

Gotta get out
Stay so long
Wanna be a lover
Singing my own song
Hit it

Wonít you take me back down
To those wild night parties
Wonít you give me back my restless heart
I need a little cool injection to sooth my soul
Wonít you set em up
And I will show you something
I will show you how I cut my track
I never wanna be the one
Stuck in this hole
Hole
Hole hole hole

Take me back
To the wildside of life
Take me back
To the wildside of life
Take me back
To the wildside of life
Take me back
To the wildside of life

Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back
Wonít you take me back


Product Of The Working Class

Anytime he really don't mind
When he stopped and just stepped into the light
Even thought of shooting it as the cars go by
And even though he would get it wrong
He never got accused of a hit and run
Got a car
Got a girl
And just cruised on by

[Chorus]
He's a product
A product of the working class
Yeah another product
So come one won't you raise your glass
To another product
A product of the working class
He's just a product
Come one won't you raise your glass
La la la
La la la
La la la

Still looked like a stripped bore
Got caught up on a hook until the anger called home
They say he never cried
Or even as a kid just why
Got a caddy got a crawl on the land
He took himself away to the never, never land
Who'd have known he was real cool cat at a dogs paw wow

[Chorus]

To dark to get himself a light
Got no call but had a real lucky time
Give it up
Give it up
Won't you
Give give give
Give it up a little bit

[Chorus] x 2
La la la
La la la
La la la


That's My Kinda Life

Gatling guns they peel back my heart
Til I'm giddy like I just don't know
Walking a tightrope first time you start
and you're feeling the vertigo
Cold sweat shaking you down the mat
Now I'll tell you what I'm talking about
That's how I feel cause I like to be
In motion when I hear it real loud

Because
Movin' it on
Yeah that's my kind of life
Shaking it up
Yeah that's my kind of life
Kicking the cat
No trouble and no strife
Movin' it on
Sure that's my kind of life

Rolling around the edge of the stage
Feel I'm bouncing like a new born child
Adrenaline rush sure knock me around
Lip lapping on a smack gone wild
Energy high on nothing but fun
Don't wanna stop
Don't wanna try
Whenever you see me
I'll be the one
Just rolling down in style

Because
Movin' it on
Yeah that's my kind of life
Shaking it up
Yeah that's my kind of life
Kicking the cat
No trouble and no strife
Movin' it on
Sure that's my kind of life

Al of the time
Stuck in my mind
Blows my heart away
It blows my heart away

Movin' it on
Yeah that's my kind of life
Shaking it up
Yeah that's my kind of life
Kicking the cat
No trouble and no strife
Movin' it on
Sure that's my kind of life

Whoa whoa whoa

Because
Movin' it on
Yeah that's my kind of life
Shaking it up
Yeah that's my kind of life
Kicking the cat
No trouble and no strife
Movin' it on
Sure that's my kind

Because
Movin' it on
Yeah that's my kind of life
Shaking it up
Yeah that's my kind of life
Kicking the cat
No trouble and no strife
Movin' it on
Sure that's my kind
That's my kind
That's my kind


Juvenile Offender

Stops to light a cigarette
Only fourteen years no more
He's been running hard
As the rain falls down so cold
Hustled off the corner by the launderette
He got move on by the law
And like a coiled spring
He's wound up and gonna blow

Though his heart lies cracked and bleeding
In his mind a voice of reason calls

Juvenile offender child
You got your reasons for running so wild
Juvenile offender all alone
Juvenile offender child
Gonna blow off steam til your 
Anger runs dry
Juvenile offender to the bone

Runs the streets the wild child
With freedom on his mind
And a voice caught in the wind
Is screaming higher
To feel the rush of breaking out
When the walls are smashed aside
It's a passionate young dream
Fuels his desire

Don't stop go on behaving
Someday yourself I'm sure you'll find

Juvenile offender child
You got your reasons for running so wild
Juvenile offender all alone
Juvenile offender child
Gonna blow off steam til your 
Anger runs dry
Juvenile offender to the bone

Don't you run
Just raise your fist
Till the blood runs from your hands
Won't you shout it out
For the spirit of your youth
And when the answers come
Right up to your door
You will know that what you
Searched for was the truth

You gotta run away
You gotta run away and hide
You gotta run away
You gotta run away
You gotta run away and hide

Pulls his collar high
Digs his hands into his jeans
And goes
Yes, he goes
Goes on home


Love Is A Gun

Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

Some kinds of girls who take a lot of lovin'
They make you beg like a dog for nothin'
Make the big boys cry
Tears from their eyes
Those who get caught in a shotgun wedding
Caught taking what sure took a lot of getting
As they walk on by
It's like spiders to the fly

Those long brown legs
Sure are gonna make you beg

Love is a gun
Bullet to the head
Squeeze that trigger
Gonna shoot you down dead
Oh yeah
Barrel of fun
Run for your life
When love is a gun

Whoa oh oh oh

You think you're smart
Think you'll always keep running
You love 'em
You leave 'em
You spend a lot of money
But you're the one who's fooled
Yeah - I got news for you
Once you get caught up in the love sights, woman
Digs in her claws til the blood starts running
She'll lead you down the tracks
With lead shot in your back

Those long brown legs
Sure are gonna make you beg

(She ain't gonna take a lot of hassle from her man)

Love is a gun
Bullet to the head
Squeeze that trigger
Gonna shoot you down dead
Oh yeah
Barrel of fun
Run for your life
When love is a gun

'Cause we all need that touch
Yeah we want it so much
'Cause when our heart feel the strain
Time to load the gun again

East side west side barrel of fun
Run for your life when love is a gun
East side west side barrel of fun
Run for your life when love is a gun

Some kind of girls who take a lot of lovin'
They make you beg like a dog for nothin'

Tears from their eyes

Gonna shoot you down dead
Oh yeah
Barrel of fun
Run for your life

Whoa oh oh oh
Love is a gun


Sweet Love Sedation

I had a woman
Well she had me
A painted lady
No ride for free
She showed me some things
You wouldn't believe
When I would leave her
I could not see
Well she had another
Like a neon sign
With her red light burning
I wished her mine

But she don't know what she's doing to me
She plugged me in
And then she turned out my mains
Somebody better call me a doctor
Her love's a sweet addiction
I gotta clear out my veins

Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation

Her neon mansions,
Of shiny light
Heard many foot falls
Of the pilgrims fight
They pay to love her
Yeah just like me
And I would suffer
Oh do seriously
So I begged her listen
To stop her play
She just laughed and told
Go, be on your way

But she don't know what she's doing to me
She plugged me in
And then she turned out my mains
Somebody better call me a doctor
Her love's a sweet addiction
I gotta clear out my veins

Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation
Sweet
Love
Sedation

Don't try to worm around
Don't even make a sound
I've had enough of this sordid affair
I burned
And learned
When she gave me what I wanted

Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation
She gimme
Sweet love sedation
Sweet
Love
Sedation


Smoke In My Eyes

I meant what I told you when I said
That I just wouldn't stand it if you did

Thought you'd got away with it
In your face I sure did laugh
Now I've really got no time to spare
Leave this place
Your welcome not
You no longer hold the dice
And by the way I never really cared

Smoke in my eyes
Just to cover up your lying
Smoke in my eyes
But you're the one who should be crying
Your a fool

Oooo Oool
Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo oool

Now you
Stand in the silence feeling fine
Your mind
Thrown in confusion bout the truth

So what you gonna do now
Where you gonna show your face
Don't you know your just a darn disgrace
Something tells me you're surprised
Kicked you right between the eyes
Now you know the truth
You just can't take it

Smoke in my eyes
Just to cover up your lying
Smoke in my eyes
And you thought I would be dying
Smoke in my eyes
But you're the one who should be crying
Your a fool

Fo fo fo
Fool ool

Oo oo oo oo oo ool

Fool ool

Oo oo oo oo oo ool

Oh you're a fool

Smoke
Just a little bit of smoke

Smoke
Just a little bit of smoke


Natural Born Fighter

Learned how to fight when he was young
He was the backstreet neighbourhood champion

Down in the gutters where he learnt his trade
Defending his pride in a young bloods rage

He fought with his instincts in his hand
'Cause he know some day he would be a man

He's their hero
He's no clown
To watch him fight just makes their fantasies burn brighter
He's got no class
But he's got style
He's a natural born fighter
(He's a natural)

Soon his fame spreads far and wide
And the people come from miles to watch him fight
Joined the ring eighteen years proud
Now he fights for the rush of the roaring crowd

He's their hero
He's no clown
To watch him fight just makes their fantasies burn brighter
He's got no class
But he's got style
He's a natural born fighter
(He's a natural)

One man with one vision
One man caught in his own kind of prison
Spent his life time surviving
He's using what he's got
He's not
No he's not compromising

He learned how to fight when he was young
He was the backstreet neighbourhood champion
He fought with his instincts in his hand
'Cause he know some day he would be a man

He's their hero
He's no clown
To watch him fight just makes their fantasies burn brighter
He's got no class
But he's got style
He's a natural born fighter
Yeah he's a natural
Yeah yeah yeah he's a natural


Feels Like The World Has Come Undone

Feels like my world has come undone
Don't wanna hear another sad song
Soldier boy now a man they say
Well I guess my time has come
Feels like my world has come undone

Tell all my friends that I'm OK
And don't believe all that the papers say
There's a chance we could be home soon
Well that's the word here on the line
Feels like my life's been doing time

Oh oh deep inside I can't hide
I'm gonna get up
Somehow face the pain
Swallow my pride or I'll never be the same
No I'll never never be the same ......

Feels like my world has come undone
But I know I'll be there when the day is won
This heart it needs a little love
Before my race is run
Feels like my world has come undone
