Track Name: All I Want
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
Track Name: Ball n Chain
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
Track Name: Bad Blood
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
Track Name: Ghost Walking
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
Track Name: Chasing Rainbows
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
Track Name: Mystery Train
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
Track Name: Golden Pig
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.
Track Name: Star
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
Track Name: Pretty Vacant
There’s no point in asking, you’ll get no reply
Just remember don’t decide
Got no reason it’s all too much
You’ll always find us out to lunch

Oh we’re so pretty
Oh so pretty

Oh we’re so pretty
Oh so pretty vacant

Don’t ask us to attend ‘cos we’re not all there
Don’t pretend ‘cos I don’t care
In this world of illusion too much is for real
So stop you’re cheap comments ‘cos we know what we feel

Oh we’re so pretty
Oh so pretty
we’re vacant
Oh we’re so pretty
Oh so pretty
