All I Want 04:11
I been up and I been down Backward forward square and round Beated cheated tricked and lied Winner loser never tried Don't know how I come this far I don't know who drove my car Crashed it smashed it left for dead Must be a reason or somethin' I said? Here I am, look at me Dead hand locked on E Twin stacks churning out the old AC All I want to be Sinners winners thieves and saints Tried to make me what I ain't All Gods children should be nice I never take my own advice Here I am, look at me Dead hand locked on E Twin stacks churning out the old AC Its all I want to be As ye reap so shall ye sow What comes first well I don't know As ye sow so shall ye reap Thats the lesson go back to sleep Here I am, look at me Dead hand locked on E Twin stacks churning out the old AC Its all I want to be Here I am, look at me Another three chord trick in E Twin stacks burnin' out the ESB Its all I want to be

Ball n Chain 04:57
I met a little baby in the south of France One look in her eyes and whoops its romance Cos' every now and then a boy got to stumble I'm head over heels lost in the jungle Tie me up take me away Here in your heart is where I wanna stay The quickness of the hand can cheat the eye I never realised I been hook line and tied I got a ball and chain I didn't know know nothing much about her past But news on the wire whoops I learnt fast City to city coast to coast Everybody want her but I need her most Tie me up take me away Here in your heart is where I wanna stay The quickness of the hand can cheat the eye I never realised I been hook line and tied I got a ball and chain I got this ball and chain I wake in the night and thank heavens above I got my little lady and whoops and its love She take all my money and leave me the scars But I don't mind, she's stolen my heart Tie me up take me away Here in your heart is where I wanna stay The quickness of the hand can cheat the eye I never realised I been hook line and tied I got a ball and chain I got this ball and chain Tie me up take me away Here in your heart is where I wanna stay The quickness of the hand can cheat the eye I never realised I been A ball and chain I got this ball and chain I got a ball and chain Take this ball and chain Baby baby's just a ball and chain X 4

Bad Blood 05:01
Don't ask me no questions I won't tell you no lie What goes on when you don't see Way I live my life I'm a man I gotta do Little things that I want to And I know that you don't need No puppy dog instead of me I give you everything I got my love Drives me on and I can't stop Bad Blood Don't ask no more favours More than what you get I keep my eyes wide open I gotta hedge my bets Here comes another thrill Gonna go and climb that hill And if it got that certain feel Bad blood inside of me Don't ask no more questions Got no alibi's Life goes on when you don't see And honey it's all mine I'm a man I gotta do Little things that I want to It ain't nothin' much to me Just the way its gotta be I give you everything I got my love Drive me on and I can't stop Bad Blood

Standing with my back into the sun Bathed in light theres nowhere left to run Burnin' bridges I never even crossed What I found, somehow it got lost Your ghost walking Your ghost walking Your ghost walking right through me Looking back at what got left behind I feel the pain I hid down deep inside Run a mile to get away from me I'm floating down into this sea of dreams And your ghost walking Your ghost walking Your ghost walking right through me Sometimes there are words I cannot use Think I've won sometimes when I really lose Should learn to walk, I always try to run Stand here with my back into the sun And your ghost walking Your ghost walking Your ghost walking right through me

Long ago in another country Born and raised by slaves in chains To do what I'm told All the lies I don't believe in Learn 'em burn 'em I don't need 'em And so it goes Think of me mile high flying Higher than the silver lining I'm chasing rainbows again All the deals and lies and pain Percentages and promises just brought me down So the walls come falling in I don't even care if I ain't born to win Think of me like a loaded gun No way left a long time gone I'm chasing rainbows again Time to get up time to move Shake the shit right off your shoes All the stuff that drags you down Leave it where it lies and just get out this town Think of me mile high flying Higher than the silver lining Think of me like a loaded gun No way left a long time gone Think of me I'm still cruisin' Born to lose and I'm still grooving I'm chasing rainbows again

Clap your hands for the magic man You know he'll save us if he can Pray he waves his hands over us all I know the children can believe Could be the problem is you and me Better change or we'll never get free at all Put your faith in whats to come Throw away the things you've done Buy a ticket and ride the Mystery Train Orders of the Golden Dawn Forget the road you travelled on Pack your bags and ride the Mystery Train Carnival in the village square Say so and I'll see you there Last chance of earthly paradise See the freak show play the stalls Happy that we've come at all Special pleasures if you get it right Put your faith in whats to come Throw away the things you've done Buy a ticket and ride the Mystery Train Orders of the Golden Dawn Forget the road you travelled on Pack your bags and ride the Mystery Train

Golden Pig 03:30
Fell in love on the night we met Hit me so hard I never will forget Cars may come and cars may pass Golden Pig I want to kiss your ass Stone cold honey I'm still in love with you Stone cold honey do anything you want me to Down at the lights theres a yuppy kid Porsche Nothing gonna burn my V8 Ford You're a dark horse honey you're a son of a gun Got that kind of power make a dead man come Stone cold honey I'm still in love with you Stone cold honey do anything you want me to You gone the way that the good love goes Smashed up crashed up burnt and stolen And if I ever see you roll past I'll still kneel down and kiss your ass Stone cold honey I'm still in love with you Stone cold honey do anything you want me to Stone cold honey I'm still in love with you Stone cold honey do anything you want me to Watch the wheels go round Watch the wheels go round Watch the wheels go round Watch the wheels go round, round round.

Star 05:24
Here's little jimmy with a new sensation More white noise for the next generation If you can't stand still stay up all night Smash the radio and turn out the lights Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be do you wanna be a star Do you do you do you wanna be a star One last flicker before we're burned out One last whisper before we can't shout One last chance to break down the door Or follow the leader for ever more Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be do you wanna be a star Do you do you do you wanna be a star Ain't it nice you paid the price Tracks all over and your brain is ice Ain't got to think for 1984 Just a palace revolution like before Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star Do you wanna be do you wanna be a star Do you do you do you wanna be a star living in lichtenstein life's good life's fine Or you can hang out in hollywood, life's fine, life's good Do you wanna be a star, do you wanna be a star do you wanna be a star
