Lyrics

Notorious
04:20
No-no-notorious
No-no-notorious

I can't read about it, burns the skin from your eyes
I'll do fine without it, here's one you don't compromise
Lies come hard to disguise
Let me to fight it out, not wild about it
Lay your seedy judgements, who says they're part of our lives

You own the money, you control the witness
I hear you're lonely, don't monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I'll do it again

No-no-notorious

Girls will keep the secrets, so long as boys make the noise
Fools run rings to break up, something they'll never destroy
Grand notorious slam
And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit
Don't ask me to bleed about it, I need this blood to survive

You own the money, you control the witness
I hear you're lonely, don't monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I'll do it again

No-no-notorious
Notorious

You own the money, you control the witness
I hear you're lonely, don't monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it

You own the money, you control the witness
I hear you're lonely, don't monkey with my business
You pay the profits to justify the reasons
I heard your promise, but I don't believe it
That's why I'll do it again

No
No-no
That's why I'll do it again
No-notorious
Yeah, that's why I'll do it again
No-no-notorious
American Science
04:44
It's a little bit late now, but there is times you will
Get a little bit out of hand making all of a spill
And if we can lay this down, you're going all the way
Take a look and I'll check it out, 'cause I can always find it

Such a lonely place
This room without your face

Oh, American science
All night long she can two-step and sway
Oh, it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting, come lay down beside me

A little megalomania becomes you evidently
There ain't a thing you can't acquire with your cling-wrap plaything
Just look at this state, I crawl around in a daze
Like symptomatic case of your soul persuasion

Such a lonely place
It moves me into place

Oh, American science
All night long she can two-step and sway
Oh, it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting, come lay down beside me

Oh, it's a little bit later now
There's times you will let it all get out of hand
When you feel you'll be
I just wished on the operation

Such a lonely place
It moves me into place

Oh, American science
All night long she can two-step and sway
Oh, it's such poor manners
Don't keep me waiting, come lay down beside me
Skin Trade
05:58
Working on the weekend, baby, she's working all through the night
A jump into the deep end gave her the evidence she required
Take five, she's got pearls
Don't fake it when it comes to making money
So she smiles, but that's cruel
If you knew what she'd think, if you knew what she was after
Sometimes she wonders and she laughs in her frustration

Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the skin trade

Doctors of the revolution gave us the medicine we desired
Besides being absolutely painless, it's a question of compromise
You've got steel, it's so cool
Get angry at the weekend, then go back to school
So big deal, it's what rules
When it comes to making money, say yes, please, thank you
Sometimes you wonder and you ask yourself the question

Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the skin trade
Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the skin trade

I know the answer, but I'm asking you the question

Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the skin trade
Would someone please explain
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name
We must be working for the skin trade
A Matter of Feeling
05:59
How does it feel, when everyone surrounds you
How do you deal, do crowds make you feel lonely
What do you say when people come and try to pin you down
Aquaintainces smile, but that's no understanding
How after a while you keep falling off the same mountain
Try to explain it, but nothing really gets that high

Steal away in the morning, love's already history to you
It's a habit you're forming, this body's desperate for something new
Just a matter of feeling, this moment's madness sure to pass
And tears will dry as you're leaving, who knows you might find something to last

Emotion's a game saved up for a rainy Monday
But you laugh just the same, 'cause it's been pouring on Sunday
Call up your numbers and never let the zeros let you down
How does it feel, is time to heavy to hold
Whatever you decide for the moment is holy
whenever you slow down to see life is passing by

Steal away in the morning, love's already history to you
It's a habit you're forming, this body's desperate for something new
Just a matter of feeling, this moment's madness sure to pass
And tears will dry as you're leaving, who knows you might find something to last

You can steal away in the morning, love's already history to you
It's a habit you're forming, this body's desperate for something new
Just a matter of feeling, this moment's madness sure to pass
And tears will dry as you're leaving, who knows you might find something to last

A matter of feeling
A matter of feeling
Hold Me
04:34
Shall we walk, shall we run
Through my head you understand
Does the body you conceal need the touch of someone's hand
Ashes, violations, who would they burn for
In your isolation, why can't you see

I wonder if the lights are out
I wonder if they're listening

Hold me, lay your shame away
Show me, where your lovers stay
Hold me, lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself

You are lost and alone, but a prisoner of your pride
When the passions you ignore, you can never hide
One of these days you're going to find out
'Cause one of these days you're going to try
And what did I say to make you wind up with this spear of guilt inside

I wonder if the lights are out
I wonder if they're listening

Hold me, lay your shame away
Show me, where your lovers stay
Hold me, lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself

Hold me
Show me

Hold me, lay your shame away
Show me, where your lovers stay
Hold me, lay your ghosts away
Show me for yourself
Vertigo (Do the Demolition)
04:45
Hey you guys, turn it up to get sleazy
Twist it in a vice
Nobody said it was easy
Just use your naked eyes
How to see and how to hide it
How to save it, well, maybe, maybe, maybe
You can take it and eat it and chew your life supply

Where's the real life in your illusion
On the dark side, your powers and confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen

Don't you feel edgy
Bite your lips and bleed
Conversation is empty
Abandoned in the breeze
Freedom is your condemnation
Free to say, well, maybe, maybe, maybe
You can take it or leave it just need a little hit tonight

Where's the real life in your illusion
On the dark side of power and confusion
Do the dance, do the demolition
And lose the chance to hear, 'cause you don't listen

You can try to believe it
Just need a little help tonight

Where's the real life in your illusion
On the dark side of power and confusion
You do the dance, do the demolition
And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen

Hear it when you listen
You can't hear when you don't listen
Hear it when you listen
You can't hear when you don't listen
So Misled
04:05
I, I, I, I, so misled

In the summer of London life, "gold", she said
Was a month before I realized, sold instead
Hey, it's such an awful choice, gonna break my back
Take it easy now, you're weeping boy, don't wanna feel the crack
Bust my head to say you lose it, now my body's gotta use it

I, I, I should not be so misled
I, I, I should not be so misled

Saw an advert in a magazine, "safe", it said
With the satisfaction guaranteed, to cool your head
I can see the solution to this state of confusion

I, I, I should not be so misled
I, I, I should not be so misled

So misled
So misled
Meet El Presidente
04:22
Miss November Tuesday
Bend your rubber rules
Take your time, but don't take
Off your high heel shoes

She's in demand at dinner time
She's on the factory wall
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who's in control

She blew your money
On taking a cruise
If that isn't funny
Well, watch out teacher

Oh oh, when the chamber's empty
She said, "Oh, oh, meet El Presidente"

Dress in flimsy clothing
Use your lipstick line
To cover fear and loathing
With a pink disguise
You never refuse when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union and a star on the jack

She's on the case at dinner time
She's on the evening news
And if you dare step out of line
You're going to be abused

You may not like it
You may not be scared
But hell has no fury
Like a young girl's ego

Oh oh, when the chamber's empty
She said, "Oh, oh, meet El Presidente"

You might adopt an attitude
Look on the moral side
But if police are after you
Where's the best place to hide

For this production
They gave her a gun
Ain't no director
So watch out actors

Oh oh, when the chamber's empty
She said, "Oh, oh, meet El Presidente"
Winter Marches On
03:27
The trade's on
She drains emotion
To drink from
Her breast of fortune
Dreams have frozen
Crystal in the morning
Birthtime rose
A thorn for coronation

All arise from your rest
We'll find enough there to feed you
Soon you'll belong to the blessed
Spare us your lives while we need you

Loud is the music, the crowd is ringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on
Loud is the music the sky is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on

Loud is the music, the crowd is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on
Loud is the music the sky is ringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on
And on
Winter marches on
Proposition
05:04
"Bring back that child", she said, "spare me the price of freedom
Cold is my baby's head blown by the wind of reason"
Even the rage behind cries out to see
We're still standing under the closing edge
Pay for the crime of feeling

When all your pride is dead
You must be scared instead

A quiet word is my proposition
A promise made of a fierce day
A body bleeds for this coalition
Without surrender if you stay

"Show me my youth", she cried, "wasted for desolation"
Hold up the sacrifice, pull down your institutions
Resting while anger flies, question's the same: who's deciding
After the clouds have lain shame on your generation

When all your guilt lies dead
You must be scared instead

A quiet word is my proposition
A promise made of a fierce day
A body bleeds for this coalition
Without surrender if you stay

When all your pain lies dead
You must be scared instead

A quiet word is my proposition
A promise made of a fierce day
A body bleeds for this coalition
Without surrender if you stay
