introducing the band

Anderson/Butler

Dog man star took a suck on a pill
And stabbed a cerebellum with a curious quill
Europe, America, Winterland
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

Anderson/Butler

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



heroine

Anderson/Butler

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 my 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



the wild ones

Anderson/Butler

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 each 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



daddy's speeding

Anderson/Butler

Whiplash caught the silver son
Took the film to No. 1
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



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 speedin

the power

Anderson/Butler

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 me, give me, give me the power
(Although I'm just the common breed)



new generation

Anderson/Butler

I wake up every day to find 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 yo

this hollywood life

Anderson/Butler

"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 worl

d

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



the 2 of us

Anderson/Butler

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

Anderson/Butler

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

Anderson/Butler

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



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



still life

Anderson/Butler

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
