Life And Crimes Of Alice Cooper Disc 3 Lyrics


Disc 3


It`s Hot Tonight

It's hot tonight; too hot for talkin'
It's hot tonight
I sweat tonight. I sweat, no sleepin'
It's too hot tonight

Dogs are barkin', cats are screamin'
Streets are steamin'
God's own heat's the devil's demon
Yeah.

My turn tonight to burn with fever
I burn tonight
I smoke tonight, I'm all on fire
Damn hot tonight

Summer nights they make me crazy
Makes me all hazy

It's hot tonight, too hot for talkin'
It's hot tonight.
I sweat tonight. I sweat, no sleepin'
It's too hot tonight

Dogs are barkin', cats are screamin',
streets are steamin'
God's own heat's the devil's demon.
Yeah

You And Me (Single Version)

When I get home from work, wanna wrap myself around you
I wanna take you and squeeze you 'till the passion starts to rise
I wanna take you to heaven, that would make my day complete

But you and me ain't no movie stars
What we are is what we are
We share a bed, some lovin', and TV, yeah
And that's enough for a workin' man
What I am is what I am
And I tell you, babe
Well that's enough for me

Sometimes when you're asleep and I'm just starin' at the ceiling
I wanna reach out and touch you but you just go on dreamin'
If I could take you to heaven that would make my day complete

But you and me ain't no movie stars
What we are is what we are
I'll tell you, sweetheart that's
Just enough for me

You and me ain't no super stars
What we are is what we are
We share a bed, some popcorn, and TV, yeah
But that's enough for a workin' man
What I am is what I am
And I tell you, babe
You're just enough for me

When I get home from work I wanna wrap myself around you
I like to hold you, squeeze you, 'till the passion starts to rise
I wanna take you to heaven that would make my day complete
(fades out....)

I Miss You (From the Billion Dollar Babies album "Battleaxe)

Dressed like fox, as cold as ice
Like some bathroom floor
No love can be worth this price
Still I ask for more

Endless days and restless nights
And forgotten scenes
Hopelessly I tried to find
Escape from this dream

Baby I miss you, when are you coming home
No matter where you are
I hate being alone

Love is sweet but bitter too
The taste can leave you cold
You know I hate it but I cannot refuse
You capture control

How it seems there's no way out
I guess I never knew
Emptiness has left no doubt
Now I want you

Baby I miss you, when are you coming home
No matter where you are
I hate being alone
Baby I miss you, when are you coming home
No matter where you are
I hate being alone

Baby I miss you, when are you coming home
You've been gone for so long
Baby I miss you, when are you coming home
Tell me you're coming back

No Time For Tears (Unused track from Sextette)

No time for tears
Stars don't have time to cry
No time for tears
He's just another guy
Who used your heart
But don' forget who you are
You're playing the part
The greatest movie star

Your soul aches
You think it's
The end of it all

But tears always dry and all of us lie
That's all
Yeah tears always dry and all of us lie
That's all

Your soul aches
You cry out
You're weep in your wine

But tears always dry and all of us lie
Sometimes
Yeah tears always dry and all of us lie
Sometimes
But tears always dry and all of us lie
Sometimes?
Yeah tears always dry, all of us lie
Sometimes?
Only sometimes

Because

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you sweetie

Because the sky is blue it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue

From The Inside (single version)

I got lost on the road somewhere
Was it Texas or was it Canada
Drinking whiskey in the morning light
I work the stage all night long
At first we laughed about it
My long haired drunken friends
Proposed a toast to Jimmy's ghost
I never dreamed that I would wind up on the losing end

I'm stuck here on the inside looking out
I'm just another case
Where's my makeup, where's my face
On the inside

You all got your kicks from what you saw up there
Eight bucks even buys a folding chair
I was downing seagrams on another flight
And I worked that stage all night long
You were screaming for the villain up there
And I was much obliged
The old road sure screwed me good this time
It's hard to see where the vicious circle ends

I'm stuck here on the inside, I'm looking out
That's no big disgrace
Where's my makeup, where's my face
(On the inside, on the inside)

I'm stuck here on the inside looking out
I'm just another case
Where's my makeup, where's my face
On the inside

I'm stuck here on the inside, I'm looking out
That's ain't no big disgrace
Where's my makeup, where's my face
On the inside

How You Gonna See Me Now

Dear darlin', surprised to hear from me?
Bet you're sittin' drinkin' coffee, yawnin' sleepily
Just to let you know
I'm gonna be home soon
I'm kinda awkward and afraid
Time has changed your point of view

How you gonna see me now
Please don't see me ugly babe
'Cause I know I let you down
In oh so many ways
How you gonna see me now
Since we've been on our own
Are you gonna love the man
When the man gets home

Listen darlin', now I'm heading for the west
Straightened out my head but my old heart is still a mess
Yes I'm worried honey
Guess that's natural though
It's like I'm waiting for a welcome sign
Like a hobo in the snow

How you gonna see me now
Please don't see me ugly babe
'Cause I know I let you down
In oh so many ways
How you gonna see me now
Since we've been on our own
Are you gonna love the man
When the man gets home

And just like the first time
We're just strangers again
I might have grown out of style
In the place I've been
And just like the first time
I'll be shakin' inside
When I walk in the door
There'll be no place to hide

How you gonna see me now
Please don't see me ugly babe
'Cause I feel I let you down
In oh so many ways

How you gonna see me now
Please don't see me ugly babe
'Cause I know I let you down
In oh so many ways
How you gonna see me now
Since we've been on our own
Are you gonna love the man
When the man gets home
Yeah.......
Oh so many ways...

Serious

When I look back at my time at the track
And I played and I played and I played and I
Was shooting the craps at the back of Fat Jack's
Come on fade me Jake
I'm a Las Vegas dreamer they took to the cleaners
A bath what a bath what a bath I'd take
A fish on a hook I was rattled and shook 'cause I lost my stake
I took that serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke and a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Again and again and again and again and again

I'm a gambling fool with a roll and cue
Wanna play wanna play wanna play with me
Put my ass on the line, rubbed my nose in the grime
And they picked me clean
The chance and the game drove Old Silkly insane
What a pain what a strain on my brain it was
A fish on a hook I was rattled and shook 'cause I lost my stake
I took that serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke, a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Again and again and again and again and again

Serious, it was serious, oh so serious
Serious, it was serious, oh so serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke and a drink and smoke
And then I passed out on the floor, or a friend
Again and again and again and again and again

All of my life was a laugh and a joke, a drink, a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor

Again and again and again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again and again
And again and again

No Tricks

[Alice]
No tricks up my sleeve
I kicked the downs and now I'm clean
No shakes up my spine
I beat the speed and I dumped the wine
No tracks, that was yesterday
I changed my style, the way I play
[Betty] Don't you believe it
No blues
No depression
No more panic
Or obsession

[Betty]
Don't you believe
Anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

[Alice]
... this kid's straight
And put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes

No tracks, that was yesterday
I changed my style, the way I play
[Betty] Don't you believe it
No blues
No depression
No more panic
Or obsession

Some tricks just go away
And other tricks they're here to stay
[Betty] Oh don't you know me
Sometimes my spirit's willin'
The flesh is weak and
That's what's killin'

[Betty]
Don't you believe anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

[Alice]
Hey now this kid's straight, put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes

[Alice]
I tried so hard
But I'm hurting for another fix
It's just this habit
I, I can always kick
What do you say there friend?
[Betty] Don't you call me..
It's just a game
And I can beat it any day
No matter what this lovely lady say
Hey, wanna be my friend?

Some tricks yhey go away
And other tricks they're here to stay
[Betty] Oh don't you know me
Sometimes my spirit's willin'
My flesh is weak and
That's what's killin'

[Betty]
Don't you believe anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

[Alice]
I said this kid's straight
And put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes

Road Rats (Roadie version with Utopia)

We work this band 'cause they make it rock
But we're the guys who make it roll
We move the drums and amps and junk
(Road rats)
We're a pack, and the road's our home

We worked the tours almost half a young man`s life
I spend a lot of time
Ain't got no bread to show for it
(Road rats)
Spend the cash spent on chicks we find

We're the men behind the man
We're the backbone muscle clan
Do a thousand one night stands
If the band can take it
If the stars can shake it
Well, if those guys can take it we can
Oh we can
Yeah, yeah

We work this band 'cause they make it rock
But we're the guys who make it roll
We move the drums and amps and junk
(Road rats)
We're a pack, and the road's our home

We're the men behind the man
We're the backbone muscle clan
Do a thousand one night stands
If the band can take it
if the stars can shake it
Well, if those guys can take it we can
Yeah. yeah
(Road Rats)
(Road Rats)
(Road Rats)
What a pack
(Road Rats)
Road Rats
Road Rats
Road Rats
Road Rats

Clones (We're All)

I'm a clone
I know it and I'm fine
I'm one and more are on the way
I'm two, doctor
Three's on the line
He'll take incubation another day

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

We destroy the government
We're destroying time
No more problems on the way
I'm through doctor
We don't need your kind
The other ones
Ugly ones
Stupid boys
Wrong ones

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

Six is having problems
Adjusting to his clone status
Have to put him on a shelf (please don`t put me on the shelf)
All day long we hear him crying so loud
I just wanna be myself
I just wanna be myself
I just wanna be myself
Be myself
Be myself

I'm all alone, so are we all
We destroy the government
We destroy time
No more problems on the way
I'm through doctor
We don't need your kind
The other ones
Ugly ones
Stupid boys
Wrong ones

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

I'm all alone, so are we all
We're all clones
All are one and one are all
All are one and one are all

Pain

I'm hidden in the scream when the virgin dies
I'm the ache in the belly when the baby cries
And I'm the burnin' sensation when the convict fries

I'm pain
I'm your pain
Unspeakable pain
I'm your private pain

And I'm the compound fracture in the twisted car
And I'm the lines on the face at the tramp at the bar
And I'm the reds by the bed of the suicide star
You know me..

I'm pain
I'm your pain
Your own private pain
Unfathomable pain

And it's a compliment to me to hear you screamin' through the night
All night
Tonight

I'm the holes in your arm when you're feeling the shakes
And I'm the lump on your head when you step on the rake
And I'm the loudest one laughing at the saddest wake

Yes I'm pain
I'm just pain
I`m dear old pain
You need your pain

And I'm the loudest one laughing at the saddest wake

I'm the salt in the sweat on the cuts of the slaves
I was the wound in the side while Jesus prayed
I was the filthiest word at the vandalized grave

Ahh so pain
Do you love me pain
I love my pain
I'm your pain

It's a compliment to me to hear you screamin' through the night
All night
Tonight

Who Do You Think We Are (single version)

Who do you think we are

I'm machinery
With a semi-automatic heart
I'm unclassified
I terminate, I tear apart
I'm always there when you think I'm not
I'm razor sharp and I'm white and hot
My finger squeezes off the final shot
Say "Goodbye"

No integrity
No contemplating soul or thought
And I'm insanity
I'm a camouflag-ed work of art
I've done some things I really can't describe
I've made some mouths open pretty wide
And I am licensed, trained and bona fide
Say "Goodbye"

Who do you think we are
Special forces in an armoured car
Who do you think we are
We don't care, we don't care

I'm carnivorous
Can't count the flesh that I've been through
Never sick of this
I'm red and white and black and blue
I'm always there when you think I'm not
I'm razor sharp and I'm white and hot
My finger squeezes off the final shot
Say "Goodbye"

Who do you think we are
Special forces in an armoured car
Who do you think we are
We don't care, we don't care

Who do you think we are
Who do you think we are
We don't care
Who do you think we are
Who do you think we are
We just don't care
Who do you think we are
Who do you think we are
No, no, no, we just don't care
Who do you think we are
We Don`t care
Who do you think we are
Who do you think we are
Who do you think we are
(repeat to fade)

Look At You Over There, Ripping the Sawdust From My Teddy Bear (demo)

You got your crust
Turning my daydreams into dust

Oh look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear
Yeah look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear

You're so darn pretty girl
I think you know it you was you
On Monday morning putting back yakity yak

Oh look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear
Yeah now look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear

You take the pebbles from the babies rattle
You make Santa's reindeer look like cattle
You take Tinkerbells rust, turn it into sawdust

Yeah now look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear
Yeah look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear

You take the pebbles from the babies rattle
You make Santa's reindeer look like cattle
You take Tinkerbell's rust turn it into sawdust

You got your crust
Turning my daydreams into dust

Yeah now look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear
Yeah now look at you over there ripping the sawdust from my teddy bear
Look at you over there, Look at you over there

Yeah look at you over there, Look at you over there, Look at you over there
Look at you over there, Look at you over there
Over there, over there, over there, over there
My poor teddy bear, teddy bear, teddy bear, teddy bear

For Britain Only

We blasted Glasgow
Invaded France
Assaulted Sweden
Took down our pants
And lovely England
My little kitten
Deliriously
Black widow Bitten

For Britain only, only for Britain, yeah
For Britain only, only for Britain

Jumped on the concord
Ain't much for sittin'
I told my boys, now
No public spiting
No bar room fighting
No bad head splitting
Behave yourself 'cause we're, we're back in Britain

For Britain only, only for Britain

Cost six years of time and space
It took so long to change his face
To redesign this streamline pace
Now strong and sleek but still no taste
Guilty
I'm guilty

Won't go to Hungary
Iran is out
Welcome to Moscow, huh
I have my doubts
Can't get near Libya
That boy's insane
Let`s head to London, where we can scream again...

For Britain only, only for Britain, yeah...
For Britain only, only for Britain
For Britain only, only for Britain yeah
For Britain only, only for Britain

I Am The Future (single version)

When does a dream become a nightmare?
When do we do what must be done?
When do we stand and face the future?
When there is nowhere left to run?

And you got to learn
Just how to survive
You got to learn
How to keep your dream alive

Take a look at my face
I am the future
How do you like what you see?
Take a look at my face
I belong to the future
And you belong to me

When does a dream become a nightmare?
When do we learn to live with fear?
When we cry out for some salvation?
Why is it no one seems to hear?

You've got to learn
It's up to you
If you can learn that the dream just might come true

Take a look at my face
I am the future
How do you like what you see?
Take a look at my face
I belong to the future
The world belongs to me, yeah

Take a look at my face
I am the future
Now, how do you like what you see?
Take a look at my face
I belong to the future
And the world it belongs to me
It belongs to me

It's all mine
Just take a look at my face
I'm the future, no disgrace
Take a look at my face
This world belongs to...to me
(Take a look at my face, I belong to the furture)
No room for you....
Whoa.. All mine..
(fade) .

Tag, You're It

Let's assume that he's the groom and he's been waiting
To consummate all night
And you're the bride, you're locked tight inside the bathroom
And you're overcome with freight

Now here's the chiller , he's the killer you've discovered
You're trapped, alone, you're scared
We cut to you, we move in close, you're catatonic
You get a close up there

And in this shot, here's what we got, he breaks the door down
And tears your nightgown lace
You see a can, it's aerosol, you grab the hair spray
And light it in his face

There's a very hungry man in the cellar
Oh, waiting
Or is he in the attic closet
Waiting

Debbie? I like this game. Debbie?
Debbie? Debbie? Debbie?

He blindly grabs you, tries to stab you but you're quicker
You over act right here
You see a cat, a ball of yarn, a knitting needle
His vision's still not clear
He's stumbling 'round, don't make a sound and then he grabs you
"Hide and seek, my dear?"
He shifts his glance, you see your chance, you grab the needle and you
You plunge it in his ear

There's a very hungry man in the cellar
Oh, waiting
Or is he in the attic closet
Waiting

There's a very hungry man in the cellar
Oh, waiting
Or is he in the attic closet
Waiting

And just like the scene in "Halloween" You think it's all over
And you're gazing into space
But you got to make sure, iou hear something, you start to turn
And you're standing there frozen staring him face to face
And he looks at you and says "Tag, you're it, Sweetie"

"Bye, Debbie. Debbie, Debbie, Debbie.
Goodbye, Debbie..."

Former Lee Warmer

In an upstairs room, under lock and key
It's my brother, Former Lee
All the mops and brooms keep him company
Misconceived of the family

Former Lee Warmer pulls up the covers to hide in his wrinkled bed
No dreams go in, no dreams go out of the hole in his wrinkled head
Former Lee Warmer


When I hear him play in his twisted key
That's the way he calls to me
On a silver tray, I keep the master key
In every way, he depends on me

Former Lee Warmer, an old smoking jacket - holes in his satin sleeves
Candle lit puddles, arthritic fingers, yellow stained ivory keys
Huh.........

In an upstairs room under lock and key
It's my brother, Former Lee
And after all these years, I've never heard him speak
I wonder what he thinks of me

Former Lee Warmer peeks out the window when he feels really brave
Former Lee Warmer waves at his father out in the family grave

He's flesh and blood to me
I, I love him brotherly
But, but I don't want to be Former Lee

I Love America

I love that mountain with those four big heads
I love Velveeta slapped on Wonder Bread
I love a commie...if'n he's good and dead, yup
I love America

I love Old Glory and homemade pie
I think them Ruskies should be sterilized
I love my chicken Kentucky Fried...
Finger Lickin' Good!

I love America
Turn me on
Well, I gotta go now

Bye Bye, I tell you what though, I really do love it
You ain't going to catch me at no mayday rally buddy..

Identity Crisises

Sometimes I'm James Bond
Sometimes I'm Billy The Kid
Sometimes I feel like Sherlock Holmes
Sometimes I feel like Jack The Ripper

'Cause I got an image out of control
Identity crisises
I drawed in a face
'Cause mine's been erased
Identity crisises

Sometimes I'm on a case
Sometimes I'm shooting bad dudes
Sometimes I'm slashing the face
Sometimes I'm looking for clues
Sometimes I'm braking the law
Sometimes I'm solving the crime
I'm always fast on the draw
I get the, the girls all the time

'Cause I got an image out of control
Identity crisises
I drawed in a face
'Cause mine's been erased
Identity crisises

Sometimes I'm James Bond
Sometimes I'm Billy The Kid
Sometimes I feel like Sherlock Holmes
Sometimes I feel like Jack The Ripper

'Cause I got an image out of control
Identity crisises
I drawed in a face
'Cause mine's been erased
Identity crisises

Now I got an image out of control
Identity crisises
I drawed in a face
'Cause mine's been erased
Identity crisises

See Me In The Mirror

See me in the mirror if you want to
See me in the mirror if you really want to
Maybe not too clear, but the face you'll see is mine
Do you feel my eyes burning thru you
Do you feel the burn when my eyes see thru you
Do you see my eyes when they burning to your mind

I can feel the teardrops hit the ground where I'm layed
I can feel you breathing while I sleep thru the day
See you in a vision in the dark with no light
Your soul may go to heaven, but your heart's mine tonight

Do you feel my skin when you touch me
Do you feel my skin when you reach and touch me
Calling you within but it's still somehow alive
And you can feel my blood running thru you
You can feel the rush of my blood run thru you
You can feel the gush when my blood run up your spine

And I can feel the teardrops hit the ground where I'm layed
I can feel you breathing while I sleep thru the day
See you in a vision in the dark with no light
Your soul may go to heaven, but your heart's mine tonight

See me in your mirror if you want to
See me in the mirror if you really want to
Maybe not too clear, but the face you'll see is mine
See me in the mirror, mirror, mirror
See me in the mirror, mirror
See me in the mirror, mirror
See me in the mirror, mirror
See me in the mirror, mirror, mirror

Hard Rock Summer

I'm a rock and roll vagabond I'm a streetwise runaway
Sixteen when I left home and I don't regret it a single day
I'm a sucker for a loud guitar, got one tattooed on my chest
It's hot July my mouth's too dry
You know I'll be screamin
Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer ... ...

Rock all night Gonna blow this town
'Till morning light
Going round and round
Hard rock summer in the USA

Got a job It was so damn hard just workin' for the man
I'm always on the same brown pay and I stashed it in a rusty can ...
Wind got hot and blew my head then he blew me out of town
I aimed my van at the L.A. sand
California screamin'
Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer

Rock all night Gonna blow this town
'Till morning light, going round and round
Hard rock summer in the USA

Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer in the US
Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer in the US
Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer in the US
Hard rock summer
Hard rock summer in the USA
