Hollywood

I've got a picture in my head, in my head
It's me and you, we are in bed, we are in bed
You've always been there when I called
You'll always be there most of all, all, all

This is not Hollywood like, I understood
is not Hollywood like, like, like
This is not Hollywood like, I understood
is not Hollywood like, like, like
Run Away, run away, is there anybody there?
Run away, run away, is there anybody there?
Get away, get away, get away...
Get away, get away, get away...
oh...woh....oh....woh

I've got a picture in my room, in my room
I will return there I presume, should be soon
The greatest irony of all, shoot the wall
It's not so glamorous at all, all, all, all

 

 

Salvation

To all those people doin' lines, don't do it, don't do it
Inject your soul with liberty, it's free, it's free
To all the kids with heroine eyes, don't do it, don't do it
Cause it's not, not what it seems, no, no it's not, not what it seems

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
Salvation, salvation, salvation is free

To all the parents with sleepless nights, sleepless nights
Tie your kids onto their beds, clean their heads
To all the kids with heroine eyes, don't do it, don't do it
Cause, it's not, not what it seems
no, no, it's not, not what it seems

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
Salvation, salvation, salvation is free

 

 

When You're Gone

Hold on to love, that is what I do
Now that I've found you
And from above, everything's stinking
They're not around you
And in the night, I could be helpless
I could be lonely, sleeping without you
And in the day, everything's complex
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you

But, I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do....baby
And it's going to carry on,
That is what I knew...baby

Hold on to my hands, I feel I'm sinking
Sinking without you
And to my mind, everything's stinking
Stinking without you
And in the night, I could be helpless
I could be lonely, sleeping without you
And in the day everything's complex
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you

But, I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do....baby
And it's going to carry on
That is what I knew...baby

 

 

Free To Decide

It's not worth anything more than this at all
I'll live as I choose or I will not live at all
So return to where you come from
Return to where you dwell
Because harassment's not my forte
But you do it very well

I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
At all, at all, at all

You must have nothing more with your time to do
There's a war in Russia and Sarajevo too
So to hell with what you're thinking
And to hell with your narrow mind
You're so distracted from the real thing
You should leave your life behind

Cause I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
At all, at all, at all

 

 

War Child

Who will save the war child baby?
Who controls the key?
The web we weave is thick and sordid
Fine by me

At times of war
We're all the losers
There's no victory
We shoot to kill, and kill your lover
Fine by me

War child
Victim of political pride
Plant the seed, territorial greed
Mind the war child
We should mind the war child

I spent last winter in New York
And came upon a man
He was sleeping on the streets and homeless
He said, "I fought in Vietnam"

Beneath his shirt he wore the mark
He bore the mark with pride
A two-inch deep incision carved
Into his side

War child
Victim of political pride
Plant the seed, territorial greed
Mind the war child
We should mind the war child

Who's the loser now?
Who's the loser now?
We're all the losers now
We're all the losers now

War child, war child

 

 

Forever Yellow Skies

Yellow skies, I can see you in the yellow skies
See you again, I see you again
In my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams

Morning light, I remember morning light
Outside my door, I see you no more
In my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams

Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Responsible, responsible, responsible, responsible

Black and white
It's become so black and white
So insecure, you're so insecure
That's what you are, that's what you are, that's what you are, that's what you are

Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Responsible, responsible, responsible, responsible

Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Forever, forever, I'll be forever holding you
Responsible, responsible, responsible, responsible

 

 

The Rebels

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen
We were the rebels of the rebel scene
We wore Doc Martens in the sun
Drinking vintage cider, having fun
We were drinking vintage cider, having fun

It wasn't often that we'd fight at all
It wasn't often
It wasn't often that we'd fight at all
It wasn't often

We wore Doc Martens in the sun
(We will never grow)
Paint our toe nails black and let our hair grow
(We will never grow)
What I am now is, what I was then
(We will never know)
I am not more acceptable than them
I am not more acceptable than them

It wasn't often that we'd fight at all
It wasn't often
It wasn't often that we'd fight at all
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often
It wasn't often

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen
We were the rebels of the rebel scene

 

 

I Just Shot John Lennon

It was the fearful night of December 8
He was returning home from the studio late
He had perceptively known that it wouldn't be nice
Because in 1980, he paid the price

John Lennon died, John Lennon died, John Lennon died
John Lennon died, John Lennon died, John Lennon died

With a Smith & Wesson, 38
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate
He should have stayed at home, he should have never cared
And the man who took his life declared
He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!"
He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!"

What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night

"I Just Shot John Lennon!"
He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!"

What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night

 

 

Electric Blue

Electric Blue Eyes, where did you come from?
Electric Blue Eyes, who sent you?
Electric Blue Eyes, always be near me
Electric Blue Eyes, I need you

Na na no, na na no, na na noo, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na noo, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na noo

Domine, Domine, Deus
Domine, Adiuva Me
Domine, Domine, Deus
Domine, Adiu, Adiuma Me

If you should go, you should know I love you
If you should go, you should know I'm here
Always be near me, guardian angel
Always be near me, there's no fear

Na na no, na na no, na na noo, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na noo, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na noo

Domine, Domine, Deus
Domine, Adiuva Me
Domine, Domine, Deus
Domine, Adiu, Adiu

Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no

 

 

I'm Still Remembering

I'm still remembering the day
I gave my life away
I'm still remembering the time
You said you'd be mine
Yesterday was cold and bare
Because you were not there
Yesterday was cold
My story has been told

I need your affection all the way
The world has changed or I've changed it away
I tried to remain
I'm trying not to go insane
I need your affection all the way

I'm still remembering my life
Before I became your wife
I'm still remembering the pain
And the mind games
Reverse psychology, never tainted me
I didn't sell my soul, I didn't sell my soul

I need your affection all the way
The world has changed or I've changed it away
I tried to remain
I'm trying not to go insane
I need your affection all the way

They say the cream will always
Rise to the top
They say that good people
Are always first to drop
What of Kurt Cobain?
Will his presence still remain?
Remember JFK
Ever saintly in a way

Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
I say, where are you now?

I need your affection all the way
I need your affection all the way
I need your affection all the way
I need your affection all the way

 

 

Will You Remember?

Will you remember the dress I wore?
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember the lipstick I wore?
This world is a wonderful place

Will you remember the black limousine?
Will you remember champagne?
Will you remember the things that we've seen?
I will return here again

Will you remember the flowers in my hand?
Will you remember my hair?
Will you remember the future we planned?
The world is not waiting out there

I won't remember the dress I wore
I won't remember champagne
I won't remember the things that we swore
I will just love you in vain

Will you remember?
Will you recall?
Will you remember?

 

 

Joe

There was a time, I was so lonely (away)
Remember the time, it was on Friday (away)
You made me feel fine, we did it my way (away)
I sat on your knees, every Friday (away)

We walked in fields of golden hay
I still recall you
We walked in fields of golden hay
I see you in the summer

Joe
Joe

I sat on your chair by the fire (away)
Transfixed in a stare taking me higher (away)
Precious years to remember (away)
Childhood fears I surrender (away)

We walked in fields of golden hay
I still recall you
We walked in fields of golden hay
I see you in the summer

Joe
Joe

 

 

Cordell

Once you ruled my mind
I thought you'd always be there
And I'll always hold on to your face
But everything changes in time
And the answers are not always fair
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I know that you've gone to a better place
Cordell...
Your lover and baby will cry
But you presence will always remain
Is this how it was meant to be?
You meant something more to me
That what many people will see
And to hell with the industry
Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
We all will depart and decay
And we all will return to a better place
Cordell...

 

 

 

The Picture I View

I haven't changed but my life has
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them
And I don't even know your name...
No, I don't even know your name...
I swear that he's good for me,
And I swear he looks after me,
And I swear that he looks out for me...
And I swear that he's good, good, good
La, la, la, the picture I view,
La, la, la, the picture I view...
All my friends and promises,
Went tumbling down the hill.
All my friends and promises,
Went tumbling down the hill,
They went tumbling down the hill.
I haven't changed, but my life has,
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them
And I don't even know your name.
No, I don't even know your name.
I don't even know your name.

 

 

Bosnia

I would like to state my vision
Life was so unfair
We live in our secure surroundings
And people die out there

Bosnia, was so unkind
Serajevo, change my mind
And we all call out in despair
All the love we need isn't there
And we all sing songs in our room
Serajevo erects another tomb

Serajevo! Serajevo! Serajevo! Serajevo!
Bosnia, was so unkind
Serajevo! Serajevo! Serajevo!
Bosnia, was so unkind

Sure, things would change
If we really wanted them to
No fear for children anymore
There are babies in their beds
Terror in their heads
For the love of life!

When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?
