Lyrics

1. CHINESE DEMOCRACY

It don't really matter you're gonna find out for
Yourself no it don't really matter you're gonna
Leave this thing to somebody else

If they were missionaries real time visionaries
Sitting in a chinese stew view my dis-infatu-ation
I know that i'm a classic case
Watch my disenchanted face blame it on the falun gong
They see the hand and you can't hold on now
Cause it would take a lot more hate than you
To stop the fascination
Even with an iron fist more than you got to rule the nation when all i got is precious time

It don't really matter
Yes i'll keep it to myself no it don't really matter
It's time i look around for somebody else

Cause it would take a lot more time than you
Have got for masturbation even with your iron fist
More than you got to rule the nation when all
I got is precious time more than you got to fool the nation when all i got is precious time

It don't really matter guess you'll find out for yourself
No it don't really matter so you can hear it now from somebody else

You think you got it all locked up inside
And if you beat them enough they'll die
Its like a walk in the park from a cell
And now you're keeping your own kind in hell
When your great wall rocks blame yourself
While their arms reach up for your help
And you're out of time




2. SHACKLER'S REVENGE

I've got a funny feeling there's something wrong today
I've got a funny feeling and it won't go away

I've got an itchy finger and there'll be hell to pay
I'm gonna pull the trigger and blow them all away

Don't ever try to tell me how much you care for me
Don't ever try to tell me how you were there for me

I don't believe there's a reason (i hope you see this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i don't regret this)

I've got a wicked demon inside that never fades
I've got an empty feeling i won't be home today

Don't ever try to tell me how much you care for me
Don't ever try to tell me how you were there for me

I don't believe there's a reason (i hope you see this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i don't regret this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i hope you see this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i don't regret this)

I want you to stop and help out with doing what you want to do
No one is guilty here now, there's nothing new now

I don't believe there's a reason (i hope you see this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i don't regret this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i hope you see this)
I don't believe there's a reason (i don't regret this)




3. BETTER

No one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better.

No one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better

The hardest part this troubled heart has never yet been through now,
To heal the scars that got their start inside someone like you now,

But had i known or i'd been shown back when how long it'd take me,

To break the charms that brought me harm...
That, all but would erase me

I never would nor thought i could
No matter what you'd pay me
Replay the part

You stole my heart
I should have known you're crazy

If all i knew was that with you
I'd want someone to save me
It'd be enough, but just my luck
I fell in love and baby all that i wanted was

Now i know you better
You know i'd know better,
Now i know you better

So bittersweet, this tragedy wont ask for absolution,
This melody inside of me, still searches for solution,
A twist of fate, the change of heart kills my infatuation,
A broken heart provides the spark for my determination.

No one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better
Ooh, no one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better

All that i wanted was
I know you know you know better
You know i know you know better
Now you know me better

I never wanted you to be so full of anger,
I never wanted you to be somebody else
I never wanted you to be someone afraid to know themselves
I only wanted you to see things for yourself

All that i wanted was
Now i know you better
Now we all know better
All that i wanted was

If i were you, i'd manage to abhore the invitation
Of promised love that can't keep up with your adoration
Just use your head, and in the end you'll find your inspiration

To choose your steps and won't regret this kind of aggravation

No one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better
No one ever told me when i was alone
They just thought i'd know better, better




4. STREET OF DREAMS

All the love in the world couldn't save you
All the innocence inside
You know i tried so hard to make you
Ooo i wanna make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know i wouldn't want to be you
Now there's a hell i can't describe

So now i wander through my days
Trying to find my ways
To the feelings that i felt
I saved for you and no one else

And though as long as this road seems
I know it's called the street of dreams
But that's not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that's bittersweet
That's called the blues

I don't know just what i should do
Everywhere i go i see you
You know it's what you planned, this much is true
What i thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

I don't know just what i should do
Everywhere i go i see you
You know it's what you planned, this much is true
What i thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

What this means to me
Is more than i know you believe
What i thought of you now
Has cost more that it should for me

What i thought was true before
Were lies i couldn't see
What i thought was beautiful
Is only memories




5. IF THE WORLD

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had would all just drift away, oh
No, there's nothing more to say
If the world would end and all loves drift away

I never knew the way that you looked at me
Would ever mean so much to me
In my heart i found the feelings i've never shown
Mow the got the best of me

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had would all just drift away uuuh
No, there's nothing more to say
If the world would end and all loves drift away
Guns n roses lyrics on www.lyrics-celebrities.anekatips.com

Oh la ladeda ladedadadaa
La ladeda ladedadadaa

I never thought all the love i was looking for
Could ever be so close to me
You're the only one i have ever loved and has ever loved me
And now you've got the best of me

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had would all just drift away uuuuuuuuh
No, there's nothing more to say ay ay ay

If the world would end today
All the dreams we had would all just drift away uuuhh
No, there's nothing more to say
If the world would end and all love slipped away




6. THERE WAS A TIME

Broken glass and cigarettes,
Writing on the wall,
It was a bargain for the summer,
And i thought i had it all.
I was the one who gave you everything,
The one who took the fall,
You were the one who would do anything,
The one who can't recall
Where she was while she was sleeping,
In another woman's bed,
Or the doctors or the lawyers,
Or a stranger that she met.
If there's nothing i can gain from this,
Or anything at all,
It'd be the knowledge that ya gave me,
When i thought i had it all.

It was a long time with you,
It was a long time with me,
It'd be a long for anyone,
But looks like it's meant to be.

Social class and registers,
Cocaine in the hall,
All the way from california,
On the way to your next call.
To those non-negotiations
To simulate a cause,
For the betterment of evils
And your ways around the laws that keep you

;:::::::::::: here :::::::::::::::::::::::::

Up and sitting pretty,
On a pedestal or bed
And now you're sleeping like an angel,
Never mind who gave you head.

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

If there's something i can make of this,
Or anything at all,
It'd be the devil hates a loser and you thought you had it all.

It was a wrong time for you,
It was a wrong time for me,
It was the wrong time for everyone
But looks like i'm about to see for myself.

If i could go back in time to the place in my soul,there all alone,
Lonely tear drops,
Ooh,are calling you.
But i don't wanna know it now,
'Cause knowing you, it won't change a damn thing.
But there was a time.

Yeah, there was a time,
Didn't wanna know it all,
Didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now

Oh,

Yeah, there was a time,
Didn't wanna know it all,
Didn't wanna know it all and
I don't wanna know it now,

Oh,
I would do anything for you,
There was a time,
I would do anything for you,
Oh,i would do anything for you,
There was a time.

There was a time,
Oh, i would do anything for you,
Oh, i would do anything for you...
Yeah there was a time,
Didn't wanna know it all,
Didn't wanna know it all,
And i don't wanna know it now,
I would do anything for you,
There was a time...was a time




7. CATCHER N' THE RYE

When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the old folks say
But every time i'd see them
Makes me wish i had a gun

If i thought that i was crazy
Well i guess i'd have more fun
Guess i'd have more fun

Ooh the catcher in the rye again
Ooh won't let ya get away from his gun
It's just another day like today

You decide
If i don't have to
Then they'll find
And i won't ask you
At anytime
Or long thereafter
If it's cold outside
As i'm imaging
How it's gonna be
All alone

Ooh the catcher in the rye again
Ooh won't let ya get away from his gun
It's just another day like today

When all is said and done
We're not the only ones
Who look at life this way
That's what the young folks say
As if they'd ever change
That's not whom i to say
But every time i'd see them
Makes me wish i had a gun
If i thought that i was crazy
Well i guess i'd have more fun
It's what used to be's not there for me
And ought to find someone that belonged insane like i do

Oh no
Not at all

On an ordinary day
Not in an ordinary way
All at once this song i heard
No longer would it play for anybody
Or anyone
That needed comfort from somebody
Needed comfort from someone who cared
To be
Not like you
Unlike me
And then the boy took that way
From me
So that he set the wheels in motion
Haunts our memories
You were the instrument
You were the one
How a body took the body
Gave that boy a gun
Took our innocence
Beyond our stares
Some type of omen
There we got it
All alone with her to tell




8. SCRAPED

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
‘cause i just won't let you

Sometimes i feel like
The world is on top of me
Breaking me down with
An endless monotony

Sometimes i feel like
There's nothing that's stopping me
All things are possible
I am unstoppable

Some may convince you
No one can break through
I'm here to tell you
You're worth more than they tell you

Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
Ay-o
‘cause i just won't let you

Sometimes i feel like
My life's a catastrophe
Can't understand why
It seems like it has to be

Sometimes i feel like
It's all opened up for me
Nothing's impossible
I am inconquerable

No one can make you
Do what they want to
You know you're stronger
Than the lies that they tell you

Don't you try to stop us now
(i'd give anything to know)
Ay-o
I just refuse
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(i would have never made so far)
Ay-o
‘cause i just won't let you

Believe in yourself

No one can make you
Do what they want to
You know you're stronger
Than the lies that they tell you

Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(i'd give anything to know)
Ay-o
I just refuse
(how you live with yourself)
Ay-o
Don't you try to stop us now
(i would have never made it so far)
Ay-o
‘cause i just won't let you
(all by myself)

Believe in yourself




9. RIAD N' THE BEDOUINS

Oooooh oh oh
Oooooh oh oh oooh (2x)

Riyadh and the bedouins
Had a plan and thought they'd win
But i don't give a f@$k bout them
Cause i am crazy

All my salvation
And all my frustration
Caught in the lies
And if your at home as well
Somewhere in time
Where only i can tell ooooh

Oooooh oh oh
Oooooh oh oh oooh

Riyadh and the bedouins
So that's the world that you gave him.
I have had enough of them
Who can blame me?

Half the time you never win
Nomads or barbarians
I won't bend my will to them, you aggravate me
Gnr lyrics on www.lyrics-celebrities.anekatips.com

My salvation
And all my frustrations
Caught in the lie
No one at home is well
Somewhere in time
Where only i can tell

Oooh with salvation
Like my frustrations
Caught in the lie
If you're at home as well
Somewhere in time
And only i can tell .. Ooooh

Oooooh oh oh
Oooooh oh oh oooh (2x)

All with salvation
And all,my frustrations
Caught in the lies
If you're at home as well
Somewhere in time
Where only i can tell .. Oooh

Oh oh … oh oh .. Oh oh oooh oh
Riyadh and the bedouins
Had a plan and thought they'd win
Riyadh and the bedouins
Talked to god and thought they can




10. SORRY

You like to hurt me
You know that you do
You like to think
In some way
That it's me
And not you
(but we know that isn't true)

You like to have me
Jump an' be good
But i… don't want to do it

You don't know why
I won't act the way
You think i should

You thought they'd make me
Behave and submit

What were you thinking
'Cause i don't forget

You don't know why
I won't give in
To hell with the pressure
I'm not cavin' in

You know that i
Got under your skin
You sold your soul
But i won't let you win

You talk too much
You say i do
Difference is nobody cares about you

You've got all the answers
You know everything
Why nobody asked you
It's a mystery to me

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
Or not to believe

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who you can trust now
Or you should believe
You should believe
You don't know who you can trust now
Or you should believe

You close your eyes
All well an' good
I'll kick you ass
Like i said that i would

You tell them stories they'd rather believe
Use and confuse them
They're numb and naïve

The truth is the truth hurts
Don't you agree?

It's harder to live
With the truth about you
Than to live with
The lies about me

Nobody owes you
Not one goddamn thing
You know where to put your
'Just shut up and sing'

I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You don't know who in the hell to
Or not to believe
I'm sorry for you
Not sorry for me
You chose to hurt those that love you
An' won't set them free
Won't set them free
You chose to hurt those that love you
An' won't set them free

You don't need
Anyone else to be
Sorry for you
You've got no heart
You can't see
All that you've done for me
I know the reasons
You tear me apart




11. I.R.S

Is it true
What they say of you

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the irs
Gonna need the fbi

There's not anymore that i can do
All the reasons that you gave
I follow you
So when you lead them in, that'll be the end of time it's true

Wouldnt be the first time i've been wrong
Wouldnt be the last i'm sure, i've known
With all the rumors i can tell,
Some things didn't work so well

Well anyway, it feels the same

When you first told me you were gone,
So long ago but i still held on
Through all the bullshit that i've had to take
I've found the truth and here's the worst yet

Wouldn't even matter the things that i say
You've made your mind up and gone anyway
And there's no use now in dragging it on
Should've seen it coming all along

Well it's true....ooh....i had,
Forgotten you

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the irs
Gonna need the fbi

Gonna make it a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With a sweet hangover
And the headlines too, now

Ah ah ah ah

Wha you think i'm doing this all for my health?
I should've looked again then at somebody else
Feelin' like i've done way more than wrong
Feelin' like i'm living inside of this song
Feelin' like i'm just too tired to care
Feelin' like i done more than my share
Could've been the way that i carried on
Like a broken record for so long

And i do
Ooh, oh.
I'm gonna call the president,
I'm gonna call a private eye
Gonna get the irs,
Gonna need myself the fbi.

Oooh, what shall i do
If i gave my heart to you
It's such a crime you now it's true

Gonna call the president
Gonna call a private eye
Ooh, gonna get the irs
Gonna need the fbi

Gonna make it a federal case
Gonna wave it right down in your face
Read it baby with your morning news
With the sweet hangover and the headlines too

There's not anymore that i can do




12. MADAGASCAR

I won't be told anymore
That i've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
That i can't find my way back, my way anymore

No i won't be told anymore
That i've been brought back in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
That i can't find my way back, my way anymore

No, i..
No, i...

Forgive that they teared down my soul
Bless them that they might grow old
Oh, and free them so that they may know
That it's never too late

So many times that i've seen life before me
I searched and found the way to choose to the end
I found a way, to know, why it had to be
Mired in denial and saw all the rain

If we ever find it true
Love will have its way to choose
Three more to tame
We can be ever

I won't be told anymore
That i've been brought down in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
And i can't find my way back, my way anymore

No i won't be told anymore
That i've been brought back in this storm
And left so far out from the shore
That i can't find my way back, my way anymore




13. THIS IS LOVE

And now i don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
But then it seems that i
Had seen it in her eyes.

And it might not be wise
I'd still have to try
With all the love i have inside
I can't deny

I just can't let it die
Cause her heart's just like mine
She holds her pain inside

So if you ask me why
She wouldn't say goodbye
I know somewhere inside

There is a special light
Still shining bright
And even on the darkest night
She can't deny

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to god she hears me
There's no one else
Could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please god you must believe me
I've searched the universe
And found myself
Within' her eyes

No matter how i try
They say it's all a lie
So what's the use of my
Confessions to a crime
Of passions that won't die
In my heart

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to god she hears me
There's no one else
Could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please god you must believe me
I've searched the universe
And found myself
Within' her eyes

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to god she hears me
There's no one else
Could ever make me feel
I'm so alive

I hoped she'd never leave me
Please god you must believe me
I've searched the universe
And found myself
Within' her eyes

And now i don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
It just might be that i
Had seen it in her eyes
And now it seems that i
Gave up my ghost of pride
I'll never say goodbye .




14. PROSTITUTE

If my intentions are misunderstood
Please be kind
I've done all i should
I won't ask of you
What i would not do
Oh, i saw the damage in you
My fortunate one
The envy of youth

Why would they
Tell me to please those
That laugh in my face
With all of the reasons
They've taught
Fall over themselves
To give way, oh yeah

It's not a question
Whether my heart is true
Streamlined
I had to pull through
Look for a new
Beginning on you
Ooh, i - i got a message for you
Up and away
It's what i gotta do
Give what you have
For what you might lose

What would you say
If i told you that i'm to blame?
And what would you do
If i had to deny your name?
Where would you go if i told you
"i love you"
And then walk away? Oh yeah!
N' who should i turn to
If not for the ones
That you would not save? Alright...

I told you when i found you
If there were doubts you
Should be careful and unafraid
Now
They surround you
And all that amounts too
Is love that you fed by
Perversion and pain

So if my affections
Are misunderstood
And you decide
I'm up
To no good
Don't ask me to
Enjoy them
Just for you

Ask yourself
What i would choose
To prostitute myself
To live with fortune and shame
Oh yeah!
When you should
Have turned to the hearts
Of the ones
That you could not save, oh now!

I told you when i found you
All that amounts too
Is love that you fed by
Perversion and pain
