Do you wanna hear something sick?
We are but victims of desire
I'm gonna shake this thing
I wanna shake this pain before I retire

I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend
make it go away
I'm sick of everything,.. I'm gonna see my friend
make it go away

Buona sera, won't be long before we
all walk off the wire
I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend
for what I require

Buona sera, cut my quick
Don't want my flame to get no higher

I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away
I'm sick of everything,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away
I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away

Wanna leave it all
Wanna give it up
Wanna see it, gone once & for all

Wanna feel withdrawal
Want an overhaul
Wanna be there, hard as a statue
Black as a tattoo, never to wash away

Gonna take me an astral plane
I'm gonna tunnel through denial
I'm gonna shake this thing
I wanna shake this pain 'for I retire

I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away
I'm sick of everything,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away
I'm gonna see my friend,.. I'm gonna see my friend,.. make it go away

Every night with the lights out,
where you gone
?
What's wrong?
Every time you can try but can't turn on
Your rock song
Got some if you need it
Get it now / get it on / before its gone
Let's everybody carry on, carry on
Get it now / set it off / before its gone
Get everybody, carry on carrying on
Precipitation, which side are you on?
Are you on the rise? Are you falling down?
Lemme know, c'mon let's go yeh!
Got some.
Get it now / get it on / before its gone
Let's everybody carry on, carry on
Turn it up / set it off / before we're gone
Let's everybody get it on, get it on
This situation, which side are you on?
Are you getting out? Are you dropping bombs?
Have you heard of diplomatic resolve? Yeh!
Precipitation, which side are you on?
Are you on the rise? Are you falling down?
Lemme know, c'mon let's go yeh!
Get it now / get it on / before it's gone
Let's everybody carry on, carry on
Turn it up / set it off / before we're gone
Let's everybody get it on, get it on
Precipitation, which side are you on?
Are you drying up? Are you a big drop?
Are you a puddle full of detriment?
Got some if you need it
Got some

When somethings dark, lemme shed a little light on it
When somethings cold, lemme put a little fire on it
If somethings old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When somethings gone. I wanna fight to get it back again
Fight to get it back again X2

When somethings broke, I wanna put a bit of fixing on it
If somethings bored, I wanna put a little excited on it
If somethings low, I wanna put a little high on it
When somethings lost, I wanna fight to get it back again
Fight to get it back again X2

When signals cross, I wanna put a little straight on it
If there's no love, I wanna try to love again /

/ I'll say your prayers, I'll take your side
I'll find us a way to make light
I'll dig your grave, we'll dance and sing
What say, could be our last lifetime...

Fight to get it back again X3

Johnny Guitar Watson staring at me
riding on 3 wheels, a woman on his knee
With a leg under a red dress I wish I could see
Further north a warmth alive & lingering
Now Johnny he be having lots of women
The reason he be smiling known to him

On the left the girl in red so innocent
never sheds her clothes even when she goes to bed
The type of girl responsible for original sin
can't help but wonder where & who she is
And the memory is always getting clearer
For that's 30 years and more I've loved her so
and how I need to know.. why she's with him...

and I sleep w/the light on,.. in case she comes
and I sleep w/the light on,.. in case she

Recently as I was waiting on a dream
she came to visit lost & lonely me
She leaned over the bed & with her lips above my head
she asked if I had seen her Johnny
Oh and I hide my disappointment
cause for years I have been hoping
oh yeh I had been hoping
that when she came, she would come for me...

I hide my disappointment cause for years I had been hoping
that when she came, she'd be coming just for me
I'll hide my disappointment cause for years I have been hoping
that when she came she'd be coming just for me...

Yes I understand that every life must end, aw huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, aw huh
I'm a lucky man to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, Others, they got none, aw huh
Stay with me, let's just breathe.

Practiced are my sins never gonna let me win, aw huh
Under everything, just another human being, aw huh
Yeh, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world to make me bleed.
Stay with me, you're all I see.

(Chorus) Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see
No one knows this more than me.
As I come clean

I wonder every day as I look upon your face, aw huh
Everything you gave and nothing you would take, aw huh
Nothing you would take... everything you gave.
CHORUS...

Nothing you would take.. everything you gave.
Hold me till I die, meet you on the other side

. . .


What used to be a house of cards has turned into a reservoir
Saved the tears that were waterfalling
Let's go swim tonight, darling
And once outside the undertow, just you & me & nothing more
If not for love I would be drowning
I've seen it work both ways, but I am up

(Chorus 1) Riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I have a soul that has been saved
I can feel like I put away my early grave
I Gotta say it now
Better loud than too late

Remember back the early days when you were young & and thus amazed
Suddenly the channel changed the first time you saw blood
Cut to later, now you're strong, you've bled yourself, the wounds are gone
It's rare when there is nothing wrong
Survived & you're amongst the fittest, love ain't love until you give it up

(Chorus 2) Up riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I have a soul that has been saved
I can see the light coming through the clouds in rays
I Gotta say it now
Better loud than too late...

Chorus 2
{X3} I got to say it now,
Better loud than too late

. . .


All the thoughts you never see, you're always thinking
Brain is wired, brain is deep, oh are you sinking

Feel the path of every day, which road you taking?
Breathing hard, making hay, yeh this is living

Look for love & evidence, that you're worth keeping
Swallowed whole in negatives, it's so sad & sickening

Feel the air up above, a pool of blue sky
Fill the air up with love, black w/starlight

Feel the sky blanket you, w/gems & rhinestones
See the path cut by the moon, for you to walk on
For you to walk on

Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing left...

Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing left...

Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing left...

See the path cut by the moon, for you to walk on
See the waves on distant shores, awating your arrival

Dream the dreams of other menyou'll be no ones rival
Dream the dreams of others then, you will be no ones rival
You will be no ones rival

A distant time, a distant space, that's where we're living
A distant time, a distant place, so what you giving?
What you giving?

. . .


Yeah I been dreaming of getting along
Now I am awake, dreaming keep it on keeping on
I catch a break, then a punch to the head
I smile big with a toothless grin

(Chorus 1) Supersonic gone & took my soul
I caught the rhythm but the clock was slow yeh
Supersonic, truth be told
I don't need you to live, to ever let you go


Yeah I've been thinking, I already know
Nothing bout nothing, or so I have been told
I'm not the paper, I'm more like the fold
Cut the crease & put the shit in the whole

(Chorus 2) Supersonic gone & took my soul
I caught the rhythm but the clock was slow yeh
Supersonic, truth be told
I don't need you to live, to ever let you go
Supersonic, gotta feel it now
I need to hear it, need to feel it loud yeh
Supersonic, truth be told
I wanna live my life with the volume full...

CHORUS 2

. . .


Yesterdays, how quick they change
All lost and long gone now
It's hard to remember any thing
Moving at the speed of sound
Moving with the speed of sound

(Chorus) And yet I'm still holding tight
To this dream of distant light
And that somehow I'll survive
But this night has been a long one
Waiting on a sun, that just don't come...

Can I forgive what I cannot forget and live a lie?
I could give it one more try

Why deny this drive inside?
Just looking for some peace
Every time I get me some it gets the best of me
Not much left you see

(Chorus 2) And yet I'm still holding tight
To this dream of distant light
And that somehow I'll survive
But this night has been a long one
Waiting on a word, that never comes

A whisper in the dark, is that you or just my thoughts?
I'm wide awake & reaching out
It's gone so quiet now, could it be I'm farther out?
Moving faster than the speed of sound

. . .


Understand she's a force of nature
Contraband hiding deep inside her soul
Exorcising her will to lose control
She lets go

A common man, he don't stand a chance, no
Wonderland pulling Alice in the hole
No way to save someone who won't take the rope
And just let's go

One man stands the edge of the ocean
A beacon on dry land
Eyes upon the horizon
In the dark before the dawn

Hurricane has the trade winds blowing
A gale force shaking windows in the storm
Shipwreck on the rock that he calls home
With one light on

Somewhere there's a siren singing
A song only he hears
All the strength you might think
Would disappear,.. resolving

One man stands alone, awaiting
For her to come home
Eyes upon the horizon
In dark before the darkness meets the dawn

Makes me ache,... Makes me shake,...
Is it so wrong to think that love can keep us safe?

Last I saw, he was out there waiting
A silhouette in the black light, full moon glow
In the sand there he stands upon the shore
Forevermore

Somewhere there's a siren singing
A song only he hears
All the strength that you might think
Would disappear, resolving

One man stands alone, awaiting
For her to come home
Eyes are closed,.. You cannot know
But his heart don't seem to roam.

. . .


What were all those dreams we shared those many years ago?
What were all those plans we made now left beside the road?
Behind us in the road.
More than friends, I always pledged cause friends they come and go
People change as does everything, I wanted to grow old
Just want to grow old.

(Chorus) Slide on next to me, I'm just a human being
I will take the blame but just the same, this is not me
You see, believe, I'm better than this
Don't leave me so cold, I'm buried beneath the stones
I just want to hold on and know I'm worth your love
Enough, I don't think, there's such a thing.

It's my fault, now I've been caught a sickness in my bones.
How it pains to leave you here with the kids on your own.
Just don't let me go.

(Chorus) Help me see myself, cause I can no longer tell
Looking up from inside of the bottom of a well
it's Hell, I yell, but no one hears
Before I disappear, whisper in my ear
Give me something to echo in my unknown futures ear
My dear, the end, comes near, I'm here, but not much longer.
