Lyrics

Introducing the Band
02:39
Dog man star took a suck on a pill
And stabbed a cerebellum with a curious quill
Europe America Winterland
Introducing the band

Chic thug stuttered through a stereo dream
A fifty knuckle shuffle heavy metal machine
The tears of suburbia drowned the land
Introducing the band

So steal me a savage subservient son
Get him shacked up bloodied up and sucking on a gun
I want the style of a woman the kiss of a man
Introducing the band

And as the sci-fi lullaby starts to build
See them whipping all the women, cracked governments killed
Oh let the century die to violent hands
Introducing the band
We Are the Pigs
04:20
Well the church bells are calling
Police cars on fire
And as they call you to the eye of the storm
All the people say "Stay at home tonight"

I say we are the pigs
We are the swine
We are the stars of the firing line

And as the smack cracks at your window
You wake up with a gun in your mouth
Oh let the nuclear wind blow away my sins
And I'll stay at home in my house

I say we are the pigs
We are the swine
We are the stars of the firing line

But deceit can't save you so

We all watch them burn
Heroine
03:23
She walks in beauty like the night
Discarding her clothes in the plastic flowers
Pornographic and tragic in black and white
My Marilyn come to my slum for an hour

I'm aching to see my heroine
I'm aching, been dying for hours and hours

She walks in the beauty of a magazine
Complicating the boys in the office towers
Rafaella or Della, the silent dream
My Marilyn come to my slum for an hour

I'm aching to see my heroine
I'm aching, been dying for hours and hours
Been dying for hours and hours

She walks in beauty like the night
Hypnotizing the silence with her powers
Armageddon is bedding this picture alright
My Marilyn come to slum for an hour

I'm aching to see my heroine
I'm aching, been dying for hours and hours
I'm 18 and I need my heroines
I'm aching, been dying for hours

Oh and I'm never alone now
Now I'm with her
The Wild Ones
04:50
There's a song playing on the radio
Sky high in the airwaves on the morning show
And there's a lifeline slipping as the record plays
As I open the blinds in my mind I'm believing that you could stay

And oh if you stay I'll chase the rain blown fields away
We'll shine like the morning and sin in the sun
Oh if you stay
We'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today

There's a song playing through another wall
All we see and believe is the D.J. and debts dissolve
And it's a shame the plane is leaving on this sunny day
'Cause on you my tattoo will be bleeding and the name will stain

But oh if you stay we'll ride from disguised suburban graves
We'll go from the bungalows where the debts still grow every day

And oh if you stay I'll chase the rain blown fears away
We'll shine like the morning and sin in the sun
Oh if you stay
We'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today
We'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today

Oh if you stay
Daddy's Speeding
05:22
Whiplash caught the silver son
Took the film to number one
Crashed the car and left us here

Broken glass for teenage boys
Trapped in steel and celluloid
They crash the cars and leave us here

And daddy burned a million eyes
Dared the dogs to criticise
He crashed the car and I was born

And daddy turned a million heads
Took the teenage dream to bed
He crashed the car and left us here

With dreams of gasoline drying our eyes
Green fields of destiny high in the sky
Oh can you see him?
Oh Daddy's speeding

Whiplash caught the silver son
Killed the sad American
Crashed the car and left us here

And sorrow turns his eyes to mine
Come with me now, it's your time
Let's crash the car and I'll be born

And sorrow breaks the silent day
Takes the teenage boys away
They crash the cars and leave us here

With dreams of gasoline drying our eyes
Green fields and death machines high in the sky
Oh can you see him?
Oh Daddy's speeding
The Power
04:32
Through endless Asia
Through the fields of Cathay
Or enslaved in a pebble dash grave
With a kid on the way

If you're far over Africa
On the wings of youth
Or if you're down in some satellite town
And there's nothing you can do

Just give me, give me, give me the power
And I'll make them bleed
Give me, give me, give me the power
Although I'm just the common breed

You might live in a screen kiss
It's a glamorous dream
Or belong to a world that's gone
It's the English disease

But give me, give me, give me the power
And I'll make them bleed
Give me, give me, give me the power
Although I'm just the common breed
New Generation
04:38
I wake up every day
To find her back again
Screaming my name through the astral plane
And in this catalog town she takes me down

Down through the platinum spires
Down through the telephone wires
And we shake it around on the underground
And like a new generation rise

And like all the boys in all the cities
I take the poison, take the pity
But she and I, we soon discovered
We'd take the pills to find each other

Oh but when she is calling
Here in my head
Can you hear her calling
And what she has said?
Oh but when she is calling
Here in my head
It's like a new generation calling
Can you hear it call?
And I'm losing myself
And I'm losing myself to you
Losing myself
And I'm losing myself

I wake up every day
To find her back again
Breeding disease on her hands and knees
While the styles turn and the books still burn

Yes it's there in the platinum spires
It's there in the telephone wires
And we spread it around to a techno sound
But like a new generation rise

'Cause like all the boys in all the cities
I take the poison, take the pity
But she and I, we soon discover
We take the pills to find each other

Oh but when she is calling
Here in my head
Can you hear her calling?
And what she has said?
Oh but when she is calling
Here in my head
It's like a new generation calling
Can you hear her call?
And I'm losing myself
And I'm losing myself to you
Losing myself
And I'm losing myself to you
This Hollywood Life
03:51
"She rocker, you're wasting your time
'Cause you're only a girl"
She rocker sacked the factory line
For a chance of a dance in a surreal world

She said: "Come rescue, rescue me
From this Hollywood life
Come rescue, rescue me
From this Hollywood life"

She rocker hear the audience scream
For the death of the king
But a hand job is all the butchery brings
'Cause fame ain't as easy as him, how sad

Oh come rescue, rescue me
From this Hollywood life
Come rescue, rescue me
From this Hollywood life

Come take this Hollywood life
The 2 of Us
05:46
Lying in my bed I think of you
That song goes through my head, the one we both knew
In each line lies another line full of sacred sound
But you're outside where the companies dream and the money goes round

Lying in my bed
Watching my mistakes
I listen to the band
They said that it could be the 2 of us

The snow might fall and write the lines on the silent page
But you're outside making permanent love to the nuclear age
Two silhouettes by the cash machine make a lovers dance
It's a tango for the lonely wives of the business class

Lying in my bed
Watching my mistakes
I listen to the band
Lying in my bed
With nothing much to say
So I listen to the man
He said that it could be the 2 of us

I heard you call from across the city through the stereo sound
And so I crawled there sickeningly pretty as the money went round

Lying in my head
Watching my mistakes
I listen to the band
And the drums beat in my head
Pianos chime the sound
In this prison of the house
And as the illness comes again
Can you hear me through the rain
As I listen to the band
As I sing the silent song
Mime each lonely word
Please listen to the man
He said that it could be the 2 of us

Alone but not lonely, you and me
Alone but loaded
Black or Blue
03:49
There was a girl who flew the world from a lonely shore
Through southern snow to Heathrow to understand the law
There was a boy who loved the noise of the underground
He left the coast and overdosed on that London sound

He said
"I don't care if you're black or blue
Me and the stars stay up for you
I don't care who's wrong or right
And I don't care for the U.K. tonight
So stay, stay"

And then one day she moved away from those garden walls
She left some flowers, he smoked for hours, she understood the law

I don't care if you're black or blue
Me and the stars stay up for you
I don't care who's wrong or right
And I don't care for the U.K. tonight
So stay, stay, stay, stay

There was a girl who flew the world
The Asphalt World
09:25
I know a girl, she walks the asphalt world
She comes to me and I supply her with ecstasy
Sometimes we ride in a taxi
To the ends of the city
Like big stars in the back seat
Like skeletons ever so pretty
I know a girl, she walks the asphalt world

But where does she go?
And what does she do?
And how does she feel when she's next to you?
And who does she love
In time honored fur?
Is it me or her?

I know a girl, she walks the asphalt world
She's got a friend, they share mascara I pretend
Sometimes they fly from the covers
To the winter of the river
For these silent stars of the cinema
It's in the blood stream, it's in the liver
I know a girl, she walks the asphalt world

But where does she go?
And what does she do?
And how does she feel when she's next to you?
And who does she love
In time honored fur?
Is it me or is it her?

With ice in her blood
And a dove in her head
Well how does she feel when she's in your bed?
When you're there in her arms
And there in her legs
Well I'll be in her head

'Cause that's where I go
And that's what I do
And that's how it feels when the sex turns cruel

Yes both of us need her
This is the asphalt world

With ice in her blood
And a dove in her head
Well how does she feel when she's in your bed?
When you're there in her arms
And there in her legs
Well I'll be in her head

'Cause that's where I go
And that's what I do
And that's how it feels when the sex turns cruel

Yes both of us need her
This is the asphalt world
Still Life
05:25
This still life is all I ever do
There by the window quietly killed for you
In the glass house my insect life
Crawling the walls under electric lights
I'll go into the night into the night
She and I into the night

Is this still life all I'm good for too?
There by the window quietly killed for you
And they drive by like insects do
They think they don't know me
They hired a car for you

To go into the night, into the night
She and I into the night

And this still life is all I ever do
There by the window quietly killed for you
And this still life is all I ever do
But it's still, still life
But it's still, still life
But it's still, still life
