Track Name: Love Ain't No Regular Gun
Love ain't no regular gun
Don't waste your time on that emotion
Love ain't an angel above
Don't waste your mind on that devotion

You gotta run a little faster
You gotta break 'em when they bring you down
You gotta run a little faster
Before they run you to ground

Love ain't no regular gun
Don't waste your dime on that appeal
From out the shadow she comes
She'll break your spine she'll make you kneel

You gotta walk a little wiser
When time's get harder keep it in your mind
Bad hearts and minds are on the rise
And could tear you from the inside

You gotta run a little faster
You gotta break 'em when they bring you down
You gotta run a little faster
Before they run you to ground
Track Name: The Black Here
O no no down you go into the big black here

Once we were such easy friends
The pills were easier to swallow then
Now our lives they'll change again
O my god who have I been?

O no no down you go
just like the sinner on the stereo
O no no down you go
into the big black here

While you're here and I'm out there
We'll talk about how things got into disrepair
Circumstances give and burn
Your reasons are your own and mine are my concern

O no no..

More loose ends
Psycho friends
The air keeps slipping out of my two hands
They're not demons they're just men
Another year of this I'll be in church again.

O no no..
Track Name: Dig Your Own Hole
It's no wonder
I'm living underground
When I look at just how far it's come
Don't dismiss no more broken promises
Rack em up when down the days we've gone

Take this burden from your servant
He don't wanna be a man no more
Fill your own bowl dig your own hole
All the way down

Well come and get it
This Armageddon
It takes the bomb to make you wild again
Girls and boys you're all now all but destroyed now
So keep your eyes on as the dark descends

Take this burden from your servant
He don't wanna be a man no more
Fill your own bowl dig your own hole
All the way down
Save your servant from his burden
Drag the dragon drag him by his tail
Sell your own soul dig your own hole
All the way down..
Track Name: Put Another Wicked Sun On Your Shoulder
Put another wicked sun on your shoulder
Put another rusty knife in your hands
Put another wicked gun on your soldier
Throw your luck away don't even understand

How all the men they got their eyes on the kingdom
Work out your egos with the weight of the world
Don't hold my hand I got my eyes on my freedom
The best is easy when it's less than you deserve
But when you're sinking deeper down down down
You better keep your friends around

Put another wicked sun on your shoulder
Put another rusty knife in your hands
Put another wicked gun on your soldier
Throw your luck away don't even understand

Where went my glory days man I've been so hungry
Every thing I seen is crackling sparks in the air
All the boys and girls were singing for something
that now you're telling me was never even there

Put another wicked sun on your shoulder...
Track Name: Conquer The World
I just heard a number on the radio
And it said i had to make a stand
I just heard a number on the radio
And it said that I was still a man
Could of conquered the world

Picked up my rider on the L.I.E.
And she took me to the underground
She flew her fighter through my MTV
And we shook it through the overground
For to conquer the world

There's an infidel in my backyard
And he's shooting at my neighbor's car
If I had a god that let me man I'd conquer the world

I just heard a sermon on a moutaintop
and it bled into a thousand screams
I crossed the ocean in my big black car
And I fled into a thousand dreams
Conquer the world

How's it feel to be the only voice on the face of the wailing wall?
Would my baby even miss me if I conquer the world?

I just heard a number on the radio
And it said i had to make a stand
I just heard a number on the radio
And it said that I was still a man
Go and conquer the world

Conquer the world...
Track Name: Shiny Shoes
Shiny shoes is how the shit got started
I look at yours I say I want em on me
Ain't it funny how your world just gets harder
And certain boys they live in fine company

Twenty two your laces frayed you've been slipping
skip and sliding to the cold cold sea
Night dogs get hungry man their jaws get to dripping
And they hang them shiny shoes just out of your reach
You cried your blues under the cold car seats

It's them praying hands
Do it to you every time
No sooner said than taken back on the vision of a
crazy man, who never sees the hidden signs
Under the dirty dishes

God know there's times when you been too slow to stop it
That tongue comes out of every mouth I see
My shoes are stinking from the skulls in your closet
I coulda sworn I saw one winking at me

Can you name the man
his shiny little dirty mind
round here the soul gets torn it's made outta nothin
I'm a lazy man I never see the hidden sign
don't wanna hurt no one it's just seems to happen
can you save me then?
These shoes are getting dirty in these fading hands
So show me yours I'll show you mine

Shiny shoes is how the shit or started
but your come and going makes no difference to me
I'll be round to see that you've departed
With your Shiny Shoes over your cold cold feet..
Track Name: I Wonder Why
I wonder why
It was you not the other way around
But it's me who's been living in the ground
I wait for you

I wonder why
Seems a year since I went out of my mind
And your face it still flickers every time I think of you

Said you once you would always be my friend
Said you once we would never cry again
Said you once you would never say goodbye

I wonder why I'm still in love with you

It's good for me
Good for me that I'm never left alone
Can't you see it's forever in my bones
Waiting for you

I know it's time
Time to break out of what was then and mine
Time to break out and take a step outside
Outside of the line

Take me back I don't wanna leave your door
Take me back I don't wanna cry no more
Take me back I don't wanna say goodybye

I wonder why I'm still in love with you..
Track Name: Manchester, England
Happened once today
Happened twice tonite
Can't kid myself that this is right

So I keep on moving on
Not wondering what went wrong

Wonder where she's is
Wonder where she's been
And I ask myself "Will you ever win"

So I keep on moving on
Not wondering what went wrong
Yeah I keep on moving on
Just wondering what went on

Manchester, England England across the Atlantic Sea
I'm a genius genius I believe in Claude, that's me

And when you departed across the Atlantic Sea
Did you ever wonder about me?
Track Name: Laughing Target
Laughing target
on your way to the gun
in the dark now
where I been and gone
did you forget all the things we done
dead forsaken underneath the sun

I went my way
was a long way gone
you went your way when the deal was done
why so sullen? ain't you had your fun
Laughing target on your way to the gun

Love gets older as the days go by
and hearts get colder as the good ones die
I still got questions for the morning sky
but she don't listen she don't even try

Revolutions boil 'neath the sun
Absolution for the things we done
Laughing target every man that runs
Goes down, sooner or later, by his own damn gun.
Track Name: Kamikaze
falling like a ball of fire
got my angel in my hand
my wax wings don't go no higher
pilots just don't understand

never thought I'd go out this way
like a nail into the ground
falling faster on disaster lay my head down

in the pocket like a kamikaze
just because he took me somewhere I won't go
warm and fuzzy kamikaze
that's how life goes

no one says in their last minute
i shoulda worked more overtime
all trespasses are forgiven that's the first sign

in the cockpit you're a kamikaze
just because he told me something I don't know
warm and fuzzy kamikaze
that's how life goes
in the pocket like a kamikaze
in your fuzzy naval sailor uniform
warm and fuzzy kamikaze
that's how life goes
