Welcome 2 My Nightmare

 


Paranormal (Cooper, Denander, Glover, Ezrin)

I'm Condemned to the long endless night
And I live in the absence of light
And my Shadow has a life of it's own
Watching you while you sleep all alone

When the night is all cool skin and bones
And you lie wrapped in sheets on your own
There's a ring on your dead telephone
Don't be scared when there's nobody home

Like a spider web kiss on your face
That familiar smell just a trace
That's my scent that I left on your lace
So you're never alone
No, you're never alone

I'm Condemned to the long endless night
And I live in the absence of light

Dead Flies (Cooper, Denander, Ezrin)

Please watch your step dear, the world is out to beat you
Don't you know there's cannibal's designed to kill and eat you
Your sisters high on angel dust and so's your porno bother
And your phone knows more about you then your daddy or your mother
They'll drive you to the edge where they'll leave you to die
Infected by the venom of their vicious viral lies
It's all lies
We're dead flies

Priests and Pariahs, disguised as holy guru
Practicing their mantra of some cybernetic voodoo
And there's always some messiah preaching mass disaster
Claiming that their Jesus or illuminati matters
And they'll drive you to the edge where they'll leave you to die
Infected by the venom of their vicious viral lies
It's all lies
We're dead flies
It's all lies
We're dead flies

They're gonna need your money to relieve you of your stressin'
They'll take your wealth and fame in exchange for your blessing
And they'll kill you with their gospel full of psychobabble vomit
When they make you drink the cool-aid and you ride off on that comet
All lies
We're dead flies
Yeah, it's all lies
We're nothing but dead flies

Fireball (Cooper, Dunaway)

On a dark desert night
Looking to the sky, something ain't right
A fireball, red and grey
People start to look, frozen in fear
A man grabs a woman, draws her near
They fall to their knees and pray
Almighty God... is it today

Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky

Hey little boy with the cowboy gun
His momma picks him up, starts to run
He laughs out loud, thinks it's a game
The alarm goes off in the liquor store
Trucks roll past with a thunderous roar
Down from the sky, a silver rain
Almighty God.... The cities in flames

Oh man alive.. can we survive

My alarm goes off, I'm shaking with fright
My blood runs cold, teeth clenched tight
But it's all right now, it's only a dream
Then I go to the window, lean on the 'sill
The night is hot, and all is still
There's a blinding flash, and now it's real
Almighty God... we die today

Fireball in the sky

Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky
Fireball in the sky

Paranoiac Personality (Cooper, Denander, Ezrin, Henriksen)

Everybody's got somethin' hidin'
In the back of their mind
Everybody's got something up their sleeve... Yeah (yeah)
Everybody's got tangled wires
Tight as they can wind
And all of them tryin' to strangle me.. Yeah (yeah)

I'm smelling a conspiracy (You're paranoid, paranoid)
Tellin' lies about me constantly (Paranoid you're paranoid)
They follow me, I seem them there
Don't they know that feeds my Paranoiac personality

Everybody's got vicious rumours
Drippin' off of their tongue
Everybody can't wait to see me run... yeah
Everybody's got loaded stories
And I know for a fact
Everybody sees a bullseye on my back.. yeah (yeah)

I'm smelling a conspiracy (You're paranoid, paranoid)
Telling lies about me constantly (Paranoid you're paranoid)
They're stalking me, I see you there
Don't ya know that feeds my Paranoiac personality

I'm smelling a conspiracy (You're paranoid, paranoid)
They're tellin' lies about me constantly (Paranoid you're paranoid)
They point at me, They stop and stare
Don't they know they feed my Paranoiac personality
My person-oric paran-ality
Paranoiac Personality

Fallen In Love (Cooper, Denander, Ezrin, Henriksen)

I was a tall cool cat an' I was on my own
Callin' girlie after girl on my telephone
Then she stopped me in my tracks with those cold black eyes
She put me on my back, I was paralyzed

My baby's love is hard, my baby's love is tough
If I were anybody else I'da had enough
Call her (?), she treats me like a dog not a cute little pup
But I've fallen in love and I can't get up
(Get up... Fallen in Love...)
And I can`t get up (fallen in love)

I was a billion dollar baby in a diamond vest
Now I'm a dirty desperado and a steaming mess
She drives me nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof
She's like a deadly cup of a poison that I can`t refuse

My Baby's Love is hard, My baby's love is rough
If I were anybody else I'da had enough
I mean I used ta be a stud now I'm a powderpuff
Cause I've fallen in love and I can`t get up
(Get up... Fallen in Love...)
And I can`t get up (fallen in love)

Now I'm laying on the floor, I'm a broken mess
Somebody rescue me, I'm in distress
I need an S.O.S.

My baby's love is hard, my baby's love is tough
If I were anybody else I'da had enough
Call her(?), she treats me like a dog not a cute little pup
But I've fallen in love and I can't get up
(Get up... Fallen in Love...)
And I can`t get up (fallen in love)

Dynamite Road (Cooper, Denander, Ezrin)

You know life is just a party, man, we're just looking for a thrill
We're gonna rock'n'roll, and Detroit soul, and plenty of blood to spill
My life is crusin' with my band, man, in my tricked out cadillac
We're always looking death right in the eye, and never, ever looking back

See, the night is full of nitro and we might just explode
Cause we're running like the devil up on Dynamite Road

For the moon is making trouble, man, and the road is dark and long
Hell, we're all seeing double and we know nothing could go wrong

And there's a limo full of party girls and a pickup full of goons
All fueled with hearts of perfidy, alcohol and Skynyrd Tunes
My car is breathing hot and heavy, man, with a vicious evil growl
It's enough to wake the devil, man, it's enough to make him howl

See, the night was full of nitro and we thought we would explode
When that limo hit a hundred and he ran us off the road

I woke up choking at the smell of burning hair and gasoline
Twisted chrome, melted glass and broken bodies at the scene

Now the boys are up in heaven, man, or more likely down in hell
An' I'm all wrapped up in bandages in a lonely holding cell
My memory might me kinda blurry, man, but one thing I know for real
That slick black limo full of ladies had the devil at the wheel

See the night was full of nitro, and man did we explode
We were racing with the devil up on Dynamite Road

I can understand why he forced the band to take their final breath
But did he have to trash by cadillac, man, I love that car to death

Private Public Breakdown (Cooper, Gispert, Ezin)

I know tomorrow's not today
I'm on my knees but not to pray
I feel what's real just slip away
I hope you like my...
I hope you love my...
I hope you see my private public breakdown
The secret service
I make them nervous

I watch the traffic passing by
I'm pretty sure that I can fly
Over the trees but twice as high
My strange behavior
I got elected
Cause I'm the savior resurrected

(ohhhhhhho)
(ohhhhhhho)
(ohhhhhhhoh)

I don`t need meds to tie me down
Or squads of feds to stand around
Cause I love floating off the ground
So welcome to my...
I hope you like my....
I think I love my private public breakdown
And I assure you...
That given time
I can cure you

Holy Water (Cooper, Demaree IV, Tucker, Monyhan, Bernauer, Mclaughlin, Richards, Ezrin)

I got a top hat and a walking cane
I got a black cat on a golden chain
I got a white shirt with a bloody stain
Going to the river of love
She got long hair, big brown eyes
She belonged there, it was no surprise
Nothing wrong there, she made me realise
We're going to the river of love
We're going down to the river of love

Ohhhh holy water
Take me down
Hold me under
Ohhhh I feel the power
Fill my soul
With righteous thunder

I was decayed, just like a cavity
Dismayed by my depravity
I got waylaid by all the gravity
So we went down to the river of love
She is a angel, her name is Tiffany
She kinda strange though, but my epiphany
I wouldn't change yo, cause she's a gift for me
And she leads me to the river of love
We going down to the river of love

Oh.. Oh... Oh.. Holy water
Take me down
Hold me under
Ohhhh I feel the power
Fill my soul
With righteous thunder

I look around and I see loneliness, and hearts so bitter and cold
And filled with tawdriness, the dark temptations of the soul
To curel the emptiness you live with every night and day
But I'm here to tell ya, that ain't the way
You gotta sing it out, we gotta reach for the sky
until ya wring it out, an' kiss the devil goodbye
You gotta wrap your arms around the woman you love
And raise you eyes to the lord above, yeah
Raise'eml up to the lord above and say...

Ohhhh.. Holy water
Take me down
Hold me under
Ohhhh I feel the power
Fill my soul
With righteous thunder

Ohhhh.. Holy water
Take me down
Hold me under

(The following lyrics are in the lyric booklet but not in the song:
I got tight pants and high heel boots
silk gloves and a striped suit
black hair with some silver roots
goin' to the river of love
goin' down to the river of love)

Rats (Cooper, Henriksen, Ezrin)

Well.. Give 'em lots of death, terror and hate
Fill 'em full of meth, they just can`t wait
Give the rats what they want
Give the rats what they want
Open the cage, give the rats what they want

Ohhh.. Give 'em the cheese, the grill and the rye
Some bling and some sex and they glow inside
Give the rats what they want
Give the rats what they want
Just open the cage, give the rats what they want

Let 'em run the maze, let 'em ring the bell
Let 'em chase their tails, let 'em go to hell
Let 'em multiply (That's what they do)
You better give 'em what they want (And they're coming for you)

Let 'em run the maze, let 'em ring the bell
Let 'em chase their tails, let 'em go to hell
Let 'em multiply (That's what they do)
You better give 'em what they want (And they're coming for you)
Give the rats what they want
Give the rats what they want
Give the rats what they want
Give the rats what they want
Just open the cage, give the rats what they want
Just open the cage, give the rats what they want
Ohhh.. Open the cage, give the rats what they want

The Sound Of A(Cooper, Dunaway)

The sound of A is in the air
The sound of A is everywhere
With the sound of a gun, and you run, yeah yeah yeah

The sound of A is all around
The sound of A is underground
It will creep into your bones, when you're alone, yeah yeah yeah

Meaningless noise is everybody's toys
Meaningless noise is everybody's toys
Meaningless noise is everybody's toys

The sound of A will keep you down
With that cruel peculiar sound
It will shoot into your brain and remain, yeah yeah yeah

Meaningless noise is everybody's toys
Meaningless noise is everybody's toys
Meaningless noise is everybody's toys

The sound of A
The sound of A
The sound of A

Genuine American Girl (Cooper, Smith, Ezrin)

I do my hair, I paint my nails
It pours outside, it never fails
So the make up runs down my pretty face
I'm a muddy mess, a Mac disgrace
But when I leave this room tonight
I'm gonna look and feel alright
Cause my mamma says the world's an oyster and I'm the pearl

I'm a genuine American girl
A bonafide beauty in a ugly world
A vision of pure femininity
Yeah I'm a genuine American girl
From my ruby red lips to my bleach blonde curls
I'm everything I hoped to be

I look in the mirror and what do I see
An immodest little goddess looking back at me
The boys all whistle when I walk by
So I toss my hair and wink my eye
And when I hit the floor tonight
I'm gonna look and feel alright
Cause my mamma says the world's an oyster and I'm the pearl

I'm a genuine American girl
I'm a rock'n'roll queen in a hip hop world
A vision of pure femininity
Yeah I'm a genuine American girl
From my ruby red lips to my bleach blonde curls
I'm everything I hoped to be

You think it's vanity, or some insanity
But this is No Man's Land and I live here every day
So come and dance with me
Come take a chance with me
I'm only thirty outta fifty shades of grey
What do ya say?

"Hey there big boy, why don't you come up and see me sometime"

And when I hit the floor tonight
We're gonna look and feel alright
Cause my mamma says the world's an oyster and I'm the pearl

I'm a genuine American girl
A bonafide beauty in a ugly world
A vision of pure femininity
Yeah I'm a genuine American girl
From my ruby red lips to my bleach blonde curls
I'm every he-mans fantasy
A feminine fatality
You're gonna know that I am everything I want to be
Oh yeah
I'm everything I wanna be
Uhh huh
Oh yeah

You And All Your Friends(Cooper, Dunaway, Ezrin)

(One... Two.. Three... Four)

We're burning down your city
The message has been sent
Angels without pity
We hold you in contempt
And this is how it all ends
For you and all of your friends

It's righteous conflagration
It's our way of paying you back
For plundering our nation
Painting heaven black
So this is where it all ends
For you and all of your friends

And when the sun goes down tomorrow
We will no longer be your slaves
And it will be the end of sorrow
Cause we'll be dancing on your graves

Cause this is where it all ends
Too late to make amends
For you and all of your friends
