Lyrics

Big Thing
03:43
Get it up get it out get it in time
Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

Brothers and sisters let me hear it
(Get it up, get it on, get it in time)
Give me the green light and watch me move it
(Move it up, move it out, move up the line)
This is temptation, power rotation
Give me the friction and watch me make it
(Make it up, making out, making it slide)

So glad you came along
This time you won't be wrong
You love to turn it on
And you're not the only one

Get it up get it out get it in time
Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

Brothers and sisters we can take it
(Shake it up, shake it out, shake it all the time)
Give me the suction and we can stick it
(Lick it up, suck it up, stick it outside)
This is temptation (station)
Power rotation (to station)
Give me the play list and watch me eat it
(Eat it up, beat it up, beat it in time)

So glad you came along
This time you won't be wrong
You love to turn it on
And you're not the only one

Get it up get it out get it in time
Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

So glad you came along
This time you won't be wrong
You love to turn it on
And you're not the only one

Get it up get it out get it in time
Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing

Get it up get it out get it in time
Hang it up hanging out hanging on a big thing
Move it in move it out move up the line
Bang it up bang it out banging on a big thing
I Don't Want Your Love
04:07
I don't mind, if you're keeping someone else behind
I don't care, cuz you've got something I can share
Hey, take your chance, even if it's only
Only while we're dancing in the light, of your second sight
Because when you understand me you might feel good around me now
I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love so turn it around

I, won't turn you out, if you've got someone else
Someone else you care about, because you, must realize
My obsessive fascination is in your imagination (now pick it up)
I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love so turn it around
(I don't what your love, I don't what your love)
Your rhythym is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love
(I don't what your love)

I, like noise, cuz I like waking up the house
I cannot sit down, I can't shut my mouth
But when you understand me
You might feel good around me (now back it up)
I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love so turn it around
(I don't what your love, I don't what your love)
Your rhythym is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love
(I don't what your love)

I don't want your love to bring me down
I don't want your love so turn it around
(I don't what your love, I don't what your love)
Your rythym is the power to move me
It's something you control completely
I don't want your love
I don't want your love
(I don't what your love)
I don't want your love
(I don't what your love)
I don't want your love
(I don't what your love)
I don't want your love to bring me down
(I don't what your love)
All She Wants Is
04:36
All she wants is...
All she wants is...
All she wants is...

Spend your money on the corner now, know you've gotta save some for the shoeshine boy
You've been pulling them by the hand inside, oh, collecting all your toys
If you need a lead to heaven now, just stick around, you're going to be there
What do you care, what do you dare, what does your heart say now

All she wants is...
All she wants is...
All she wants is...

Divine intervention couldn't keep the word from leaking out
With your pleasure in suspension, not to mention what you hang it around
If you need a lead to heaven, a place to share in every position
What do you care, what do you dare, what does your heart say now

All she wants is...
All she wants is...
All she wants is...
More!
All she wants is...
All she wants is...
All she wants is...
Too Late Marlene
05:11
Waking out of nowhere
And I let you in
Til my imagination went for a spin
I seen you every night
Been making out since then
And still I wonder why everybody's saying
That ice is thin

And I think I know you
Just a little bit by now
(Just a little bit by now)
And I think I can show you
You see baby, I don't want to fight about it

Send down your rain
Then who's to blame
And you'll understand
Because it's much too late to change

Awaken to this hunger
And then watch my heat
Grow paler than the moonlight
That you made me eat
And if we run our lives
Along a one way street
We'll always wonder why everytime
It still tastes just as sweet

And I think I know you
Just a little bit by now
(Just a little bit by now)
And I think I can show you
You see baby, I don't want to fight about it

Send down your rain
Then who's to blame
You'll understand
Because it's much too late to change
I will explain (too late)
We're to much the same (too late)
No I won't leave
Because it's just too late Marlene

You see baby
I don't want to fight about it

Send down your rain
Then who's to blame
You'll understand
Because it's much too late to change
I will explain (too late)
We're to much the same (too late)
No I won't leave
Because it's just too late Marlene

(Too late, too late, too late Marlene)
Drug (It's Just a State of Mind)
04:22
Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay...
Take me
Take me
Take me

Before you slide into the wide
There's something I want you to know
(What you see is what you want)
In all your stretch of consciousness
You've still got a long way to go
(What you want is what you need)
Some make you spin,
Some make you sweat,
Its only here for you to choose (choose me)
And if you try an alternative high
Then tell me what have you got to lose now?

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're feeling low
Take me when you want to stay up all night
Up all night

The hit, the hit
The hit to fit reality
Its just a state of mind
(What you see is what you want)
And you'll admit its more than just an axe that you've got to grind
(What you want is what you need)
We'll make a spin
We'll make you sweat
All you've got to do is use me (use me)
Some like it hot
But I like it wet
So tell me what have we got to lose now?

(chorus)

A drug, its a drug
A drug, its a drug
A drug, its a drug
A drug, its a drug

(Use me use me use me use me)
A drug, its a drug
(Choose me choose me choose me choose me)
A drug, its a drug
(Use me use me use me use me)
(Take...take...take)
A drug, its a drug
(Choose me choose me choose me choose me)
(Take...take...take)
A drug, its a drug

(chorus)

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when the beat is slow
Take me when the mood is right

(chorus)

Take me every morning
Take me every night
Take me when you're beat is slow
Take me when the mood is right
Up all night
Up all night
Do You Believe in Shame?
04:25
Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in shame?
And if love can conquer all then why
Do we only feel the pain?
I heard you speak my name
Heard you singing The Stones
Maybe heard you laughing in a line of static
On my telephone
So why your eyelids are closed
Inside a case of rust?
And did you have to change all your poet's fire
To frozen dust
I try to justify it
To learn from your mistake
But where's the stupid lie that has to make its point
With such a pointless waste?
Come out

Do you believe in shame?
Do you believe in love?
And if they taste the same would you love again
Or abandon both?
I don't think I ever can believe my friend is gone
Keep saying it's all right, I'm gonna bring you back
But I know I'm wrong
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing left to do
It's just that lately I've been so damn lonely when
I think of you
And it may seem selfish now but I'll hold on to
The memory until all this fear is washed away

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in life?
'Cause I believe a little part of you inside of me
Will never die
'Cause I believe a little part of you inside of me
Will never die
'Cause I believe a little part of you inside of me
Will never die
'Cause I believe a little part of you inside of me
Will never die
Palomino
05:20
She lays on the wall
Watching the strangers drift away
Mid-day's all thick
With the sun of Arabia

She surrenders her voices
They gather, on the wind
Talkin, chanting, breathing
Into her body
Yesterdays

Awaken beside
The scent of burnt sugar, on the skin
Painting eyes, thick
With the color she brings in
Always sure and strong
When the lightning tumbles down
Don't you frown
Everything will be
In time for this evening

If there's secrets
She has to be party to
Every one of them
In this heaven
She gets to the heart
And you'll wonder

Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Now I can run to you
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me red instead
Now let me run (now let me run)

If there's secrets
She has to be party to
Every one of them
If there's heaven
She gets to the heart
And you'll know just

Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Now I can run to you
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me red instead
Now let me run (now let me run)

Hey, hey
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Now I can run to you (honey)
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me red instead
Now I can run to you

Hey-hey
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Help me rise instead
Now I can run to you (honey)
Why she says
When I run out of blue
Give me red instead
Now I can run to you

Land
06:13
(Away from here away from here)
(Away from you)
(Stay for me stay for me)

Baby, I'm really sorry
To break your dream
When it's so early
Headlights
On the windowpane
They're getting lost
In the light of day

Tomorrow is today
And soon my ship will sail

Away from here
To walk a howling sea lane
Stay for me
Your love is life
For love is land

Baby, just hear my story
Before I leave
Before we write the end
Standing across the ocean stream
I'll need to know
I'll need your country then.

Tomorrow and today
You keep my landfall safe

Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sea lane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
I need your love to land
Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sea lane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
Your love is life, for love is land

Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sea lane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
I need your love to land
Away from here (away from here)
To walk a howling sea lane (away from you)
Stay for me (stay for me)
Your love is life, for love is land

Love is land
Love is land
Love is land
Love is land

The Edge of America
02:38
Walk the edge of America
Concrete beach to scrape my hand
Inside the subway stinking fear and shame
Becomes the violent breath
Vigilantes out on dawn patrol
But now there's nothing left to hide
I'm just a number on the metal fence
Which marks the great divide

Sing it
Hey boy, give your dreams a rest
If you're tired of searching this is where it ends
There's nothing left to lose
Nothing to protest
Learn to love your anger now
Anger here is all you possess
Welcome to the edge

Below the towers of the citadel
Seems someone overlooked the cost
Forgotten soldier of Paradise
Now Paradise is lost
Recognition never realized
Salvation lost among the crowd
So tell me here beside the sterile sea
Where is your nation now?

And we say
Hey boy, give your dreams a rest
If you're tired of searching this is where it ends
There's nothing left to lose
Nothing to protest
Learn to love your anger now
Anger here is all you possess
Welcome to the edge
