1: Introducing The Band

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

2: We Are The Pigs

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 will watch them burn

3: Heroine

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 Hypnotising 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 Aching, been dying for hours and hours I'm 18, I need my heroines Aching, been dying for hours Oh and I'm never alone now Now I'm with her

4: The Wild Ones

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 And as I open the blinds in my mind I'm believing that you could stay And oh if you stay I'll chase the rainblown 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 Cos 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 rainblown 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

5: Daddy's Speeding

Whiplash caught the silver son Took the film to No. I Crashed the car and left us here Broken glass for teenage boys trapped in steel and celluloid Crashed the car and left 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 But 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 But oh can you see him? Oh, when Daddy's speeding

6: The Power

Through endless Asia, through the fields of Cathay or enslaved in 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 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 the power And I'll make them bleed Give, give me, give me the power (Although I'm just the common breed)

7: New Generation

I wake up every day to see her back again Screaming my name through the astral plane And in this catalogue town she takes me down Down through the platinum spires Down through the telephone wires And we shake it around in 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, losing myself to you 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 Cos 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, losing myself to you

8: This Hollywood Life

"She-rocker you're wasting your time, Cos 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 Cos 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

9: The 2 Of Us

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.........

10: Black Or Blue

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

11: The Asphalt World

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-honoured 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 arse felt 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-honoured 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 Cos 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

12: Still Life

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
