Woman Of Mass Distraction

I`m a shock rock romeo I like ta leave 'em shattered
Oh I can love 'em, and leave 'em, it doesn`t really matter
I never met my match, until I met the lady
Oh she whoop'd me, she cooked me, she practically fileted me

Some girls, try to get you in bed
Some girls, are like a kick in the head
Some girls, make you wish you were dead
Some girls will make you blue when you should be seeing red

She`s a woman
Some kinda woman
I got a woman
A woman of mass distraction

The first time I saw her she said d'ya wanna date me
Oh the next time I come back she tried to cas-ter-ate me

Some girls, try to get you in bed
Some girls, like a kick in the head
Some girls, make you wish you were dead
Some girls will make you blue when you should be seeing red

She`s a woman
Some kinda woman
I got a woman
A woman of mass distraction

She`s a woman
Some kinda woman
I got a woman
She`s a woman

She`s a woman
Some kinda woman
She`s a woman
Some kinda woman

Perfect

She's an overnight sensation in the mirror on her wall
She gets a standing ovation at every shower curtain call
And she becomes a pop star in the safety of her car
and then she falls to pieces at the karaoke bar

She's perfect
Until the lights go on
And then it all goes wrong
'Cause now she's not so perfect

She can shake it just like J-Lo when the bedroom lights go down
But when she hits the dance floor she's a hip-hop hippo clown

She's perfect
Until the lights go on
And then it all goes wrong
'Cause now she's not so perfect

She's so perfect
She's so fine
She's so wonderful
In the arena of her mind

She's not perfect
She's all mime
She can't sing or dance
She ain't got a chance
But baby... I don't mind..

She's perfect
Awwww She's perfect
Awwww She's so perfect
You know she's so perfect
Aw Aw Aw

Sing baby
Dance dance dance
You give
Shake it down..
Oh that's bad..
That bad..
I love ya baby
That's just awful
Whoa
You gotta
You gotta
Whoa
Never, Never do that again

You Make Me Wanna

You`re the star, You're the face
You got the look that I can't erase (?)
You look the world right in the eye
Stare 'em down babe, and make 'em cry
Well I know it don't make much sense
I'm in love with your innocence

What you got
What I need
You took my breath now let me breathe
What you got
What I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Ya know you make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Oh you make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Yeah, think I gotta (wa hoo hoo)

Your the bomb, I`m the fuse
Light me up and turn me loose
You shake me up when you walk by
Heart is beatin' and my mouth is dry
Well I know it don't make much sense
But I'm in love with your innocence

What you got
What I need
You took my breath now let me breathe
What you got
What I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Ya know you make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Oh you make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Yeah, I think I gotta (wa hoo hoo)
You know you make me wanna

(wa hoo hoo)
(wa hoo hoo)
(wa hoo hoo)
(wa hoo hoo)

What you got
What I need
You took my breath now let me breathe
What you got
What I need
I follow where you lead

You make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Ya know you make me wanna (wa hoo hoo)
Oh you make me wanna
(wa hoo hoo) (What you got)
Oh... I gotta (what you got)
Yeah yeah yeah

Dirty Diamonds

Oh it looked so good, the perfect plan
You had ta be greedy to be tha man
Now your holding the bag, paying the price
Gonna get burned from the heat of the ice

Dirty Diamonds

You roll the dice, bet your life
Put your trust in your trophy wife
Got stabbed in the back in a blink of her eye
She's in bed with the boys and the F.B.I.

Dirty Diamonds
Blood soaked money in your shakin' fist
Dirty Diamonds
Stone cold killers and you're on their list

Ha ha oh yeah
You're tied to a chair with a gun at your head
Your face is all smeared with the blood that's been shed
You were gonna be rich now you're gonna be dead
And all that glitters turns to lead

Can't you hear them coming, You're gonna die

Can't you hear them coming, You're gonna die

The Saga Of Jesse Jane

I'm in jail in a Texas town
In my sisters wedding gown
I drive a truck all night long
Listenin' to Judy Garland songs

Now I'm locked behind bars of steel
I was just looking for a happy meal
I parked my rig and I went inside
They've never seen such a pretty bride

Jesse Jane, are you insane
Or are you just a normal guy who dresses like a butterfly
Jesse Jane

I paid my bill and I turned around
Facing every redneck in that one horse town
His face was red, his fist was clenched
He threw his coke and he got me drenched

Jesse Jane, are you insane
Or are you just an average joe looking for a fashion show
Jesse Jane

Well I guess that was the final straw
I pulled a pistol from my wonderbra
I killed 'em dead. Hah, I killed 'em all
And they finally caught me in the bathroom stall
And now I'm doing ten to life
But I'll tell you one thing bubba...
Some day I'm gonna make someone in here a hellava wife...

Jesse Jane, are you insane
Or are you just a average guy who dresses like a butterfly
Jesse Jane

Jesse Jane, are you insane
Or are you just a Peter Pan, looking for his Neverland
Jesse Jane

Sunset Babies (All Got Rabies)

They're running in packs on a saturday night
They got their own bark and they got their own bite
Waitin' in line I can't wait no more....No
Slip right in, get kicked out the back door

I don't know
If it's possible to tame one
I don`t know
If she'll follow me home
I don't know
What it is about her

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
Got my shot...

They got a sixth sense, they know why you're here
They can smell the fear thru the smoke and the beer
They're a vicious breed and they just don't care
You think you're in but you're getting nowhere

I don't know
If it's safe to pet one
I don`t know
To go for my throat
I don't know
What it is about them

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
And I'd buy her a diamond collar, if she'd only throw me a bone
Here I am alone...

Sunset babies all got rabies
Sunset babies all got rabies
Got my shot...

And she's supposed to be a mans best friend
Why she play around
Now I gotta put that old girl down

Pretty Ballerina

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
and then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

I called her yesterday,
it should have been tomorrow
I couldn't keep the joy that was inside
I begged for her to tell me
if she really loved me
Somewhere a mountain is moving
Afraid it's moving without me

(ba ba ba ba)

I had a date with a pretty ballerina
Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
and then she obliged me
Was I surprised, yeah
Was I surprised, no not at all

And when I wake up up on a dreary Sunday morning
I open up my eyes to find there's rain
And something strange within said,
go ahead and find her
Just close your eyes, yeah
Just close your eyes and she'll be there
She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She'll be there...
She's there...
She's there...
Aw.. she's there...
Yeah She's there...
She'll be there

Run Down The Devil

It's twelve o'clock in the mornin'
While everybody is sleepin'
I want him dead in my headlights
'Cause in the shadow he's creepin'

Drive on down to lonely street
He's always waitin' there for me

Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down

I wanna take him to the mercury grill
I hope he's ready for the big blast
He'll be my ultimate road kill
I'll kick his future up his past

I'll send him back to hell alright
The world can sleep in peace tonight

Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down

Everybody's gotta hold him down
Can't let beelze-baby back in town

Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run....
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run the devil down
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down
Run down the devil, run....
Run Down the devil, run him down, down, down

Steal That Car

It just ain't fair I was put in that position
Somebody left their keys in the ignition
I saw the unlocked door and I made my decision
I just can't help myself

Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation shows, I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car

I don`t get bored in a Chevy or a Ford
With a V8 engine and a four on the floor
And a naughty maserati can't be ignored
I just can't help myself

Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation shows, I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car
Yeah

Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation grows, I'm gonna steal that car
I did some time in '99
I'll do some time again
Everybody knows, I'm gonna steal that car
My reputation shows, I'm gonna steal that car
steal that car
steal that car
steal that car
Steal it, Steal it, Steal it
Steal it, Steal it, Steal it
Steal it, Steal it, Steal it
Car..........
I want that car
I want that car
I want that car

Six Hours

There's only six hours left in the day
Time is so precious an' it's slippin' away
Got no destination, got no place to go
Being with you was all that I know

Put your head on my pillow
We're finally alone
Wash the dust from your hair now
I don`t care if you ever get home

There's only six hours, how quickly it goes
in this sacred place, a secret is safe, Nobody knows
Put your head on my pillow
We're finally alone
Wash the dust from your hair now
I don`t care if you ever get home
Wash the dust from your hair now
I don`t care... if you ever get home...

Your Own Worst Enemy

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walkin' catastrophe

You get up every morning on the wrong side of the bed
You butter your hand, instead of your bread
Drink enough coffee to wake up the dead
You're doing eighty-five and the light is turning red
The judge took your licence and forbid you to drive
And your heart is pumping bacon (beggin'?) and your barely alive

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walkin' catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger
You're a danger

You trip on your shoelace and fall on your face
Your hair is a mess, your clothes a disgrace
Your stock went south and your girlfriend is gay
Your dog ate your cat, and that was your GOOD day

You're your own worst enemy
You're a walkin' catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger
You're your own worst enemy
You're a walkin' catastrophe
You're at war with yourself and nobody else
You're a danger
You're a danger
Too many stranger
You`re a mess
Yes yes.

Zombie Dance

Walking through the tombstones, go there every day
Stood damn still, I gotta chill, someone walked across my grave
Stroll across the killing fields in the middle of the night
Walked across the fire in the cold moon light

Black Cat crossed my pathway
Winks a Juju eye
Cross myself and kiss this world goodbye

The nights alive with music, puts me in a trance
Sneak up on the bonfire, watch the zombies dance
My tongue is hot and burnin' when I try to speak
Spirit is all willing, the flesh is getting weak
yeah it's gettin' weak

Now I ain't superstitious
Don't roll no juju bones
Someone calls in the middle of the night
But no ones on the phone..

Black cat cross my pathway
Winks a Juju eye
I cross myself and kiss this world goodbye

I ain't superstitious
Don't grow no voodoo doll
Someone calls in the middle of the night
No ones on the phone..

Nights alive with music...
Nights alive with music...

The Sharpest Pain

Hurtin' me seems to be your passion
Misery is certainly your style
I'm like a kid in a candy store
I'm on my knees till I lick the floor
Can't stand to look at your face
But I'm back for more

The sharpest pain
The ugliest scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are
The burning sting
Is what you bring
An'
you remain the sharpest pain

You're the star in your own sad story
I'm just a toy you can drag around
You're 'bout as sick as you can be
A twisted abnormality
Don't wanna be your first fatality

The sharpest pain
The ugliest scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are
The burning sting
Is what you bring
An'
you remain the sharpest pain

Though you're never ever funny
I just gotta laugh out loud
'Cause you keep me in stitches
Till the last grain of decency runs out

The sharpest pain
The ugliest scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are
The burning sting
Is what you bring
An'
you remain the sharpest pain

The sharpest pain
The ugliest scar
The deepest cut
Is what you are
The burning sting
Is what you bring
An'
you remain the sharpest pain

Stand

xzibit:
Yeah
Stand Up
Ha?
What do you believe in?
Ha?
Yeah
Stand Up
Aha
C'mon

Alice:
Just a face in the crowd
Feelin' lost, down and out
(Can you hear me now)
Millions more just like you
Afraid to do what they wanna do
(Am I getting through)

Lots of losers hanging round
Only there to bring you down
Get you feet up off the ground
Get up. Get up. Get up

If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
Get up

Xhibit: Yeah Yeah

Alice:
Don't you know that you're worth
As much as anyone on earth
(You`re a megastar)
Put your hands in the sky
Let your freaky colours fly
(Get 'em way up high)

You got style and you got game
So get it out don't be ashamed
(Xhibit: Yeah)
Let everybody know your name
(Xhibit: C'mon)
Get it on out now, what's you name

If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
If you don't stand for somethin'
(Xhibit: Stand Up)
You will fall for anythin'
Get up

Xhibit:
Yeah
Ah
Yeah
Breathe with me
Yeah
C'mon
Breathe

You can stand for peace
You can stand for war
I stand in the square I never stood before
I take a stand for my son like Afeni Shakur (Note: Mother of dead rapper Tupac Shakur)
I take a stand like a four double six six four
Stand alone in my struggle
Can't make me stand down
Make 'em crash and burn
Mayday mayday man down
Get up stand up get your damn hands off
If they not shackled to your feet in some handcuffs

We need solutions, not propaganda
Let the tape roll, make the whole world stand up
Hold your position, don't go backwards
X still grinding, the west's keeps shining
Don't look too long you might get blinded
Follow your heart, your head might just find it
I pray for the strength to handle what my city brings
Better stand for something (or) you're bound to fall for anything

Alice:
If you don't stand for somethin'
(Xhibit: stand up stand up)
You will fall for anythin'
Get Up!
If you don't stand for somethin'
You will fall for anythin'
Everybody's got a voice
Now's the time to make some noise
(Let me hear you now)
Get up!
