1. SMELL THE MAGIC / BAD TO THE BONE

(Instrumental)




2. STRANGE KIND OF ATTITUDE

I feel something runnin?through my veins
And it feels like I? goin?quite insane
And I can? find the cure anymore

`Cause she wouldn? love me
Too young and I was too drunk
And I always been talkin? talkin?
Praying like a dog in the rain
Like a dog in the rain

She said, you wanna ride with me
With a Jack in my hand, baby
I? gonna sit outside your door
And try to understand

`Cause you got a strange kind of attitude
Don't you see that I miss you too
What the hell am I gonna do with a girl like you
With a girl like you

What can I do
When I saw you walkin?ith another man
All I can walk with now is my bottle, hand in hand

And don't try to tell me
Stories that I'm already been told
Doin'lright, baby
Just a drunk like me on my own
On my own

She said, you wanna ride with me
With a Jack in my hand, maybe
I gonna sit outside your door
And try to understand

`Cause you got a strange kind of attitude
Don't you see that I miss you too
What the hell am I gonna do with a girl like you
With a girl like you

I was out walkin' one lonely night
And the rain was pouring down her cheeks
She said to me, honey, love is like a smoke
And it always disappears

Don't try to run
And don't try to cry
And don't try to throw my bottle away
`Cause I don't know how to love someone
But I think I can find my way

She said, you wanna ride with me
With a Jack in my hand, maybe
I gonna sit outside your door
And try to understand

`Cause you got a strange kind of attitude
Don't you see that I miss you too
What the hell am I gonna do with a girl like you

`Cause you got a strange kind of attitude
Don't you see that I miss you too
What the hell am I gonna do with a girl like you
With a bitch like you
With a girl like you
Baby, I can find my way




3. DIESEL AND POWER

Come on little honey
Let me show you why
I´ve got this love for steaming wheels
Come on inside tonight
Let me drive you to the other side

My baby she´s blue
Like a new tattoo
And she´s makin´ my rules tonight
Come on I´ll drive you to the church of love
Where the priest is gasoline

Come on, baby, I´ll show you
Come on, honey, I own you

Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power
Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power

She´s got the diesel and the power

Come on inside and I´ll show you why
I´ve got a one way ticket to the gates of hell
And I am over you
But if I woke up in a prison cell
It wouldn´t be so hard to tell
`Cause eighteen wheels my love baby
And I ain´t fuckin´ coming back

Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power
Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power

Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power
Girl I´m drivin´ on a highway of love
She´s got the diesel and the power

`Cause, baby, I´m drivin´on your highway of motherfuckin´ love




4. LOVE

Days go by with cigarettes
And someone put a coin in a wishing well
Lookin at you makes me weak inside
I can't stand seeing you with somebody else

Someday when I'm in love
Heaven can wait for me

All I can see is your pretty face
You lookin like a cover of a magazine
Why am I slave under the female sex
I don't want to waste my time again

Someday I'm in love
When I've been drinkin a lot of wine
I'm in love
Feels like heaven can wait for me

It can wait for me
And you know why

And I've tried everything to cure my soul
Going down in hell with a bottle of you
Nothing can change the way I feel for her
The devil in the glass is telling me what to do

Someday I'm in love
When I've been drinkin a lot of wine
I'm in love
Feels like heaven can wait for me

It can wait
Sticks and stones can't break my bones
But you can always hurt me inside

Come on and love me inside
But I'm still waitin

Days go by with cigarettes
And someone put a coin in a wishing well
Why am I slave under the female sex
I don't want to waste my time again

Maybe someday when I'm in love
Heaven can wait for me

I'm in love
When I've been drinkin a lot of wine
I'm in love
Feels like heaven can wait for me

I'm in love
Everything to kill my soul
I'm in love
But I don't want to waste my time

Days go by with cigarettes
And someone put a coin in a wishing well




5. WILD DOG

Did you get what you were looking for
I think you?e out of line
Or did you find what you were hiding for
It can't be dreams no more

Bad dust and dangerous gals
I'm gonna find my kisses in the moonlight
Don't look for me when it? all too much
`Cause I can do everything I want to do
`Cause I like a dog without a bone
I gonna move on like a rollin?stone

`Cause I a wild dog
You know what I talkin' about
Wild dog
So bad wild dog
And I coming over you
Like a dog eat dog

Did you find what you were looking for
You must be out of your mind
I didn't know what you were hiding for

Bad dust and dangerous gals
I gonna find my kisses in the moonlight
Don't look for me when it all too much
`Cause I can do everything I want to do
`Cause I like a dog without a bone
I gonna move on like a rollin?stone

`Cause I'm a wild dog
You know what I'm talkin' about
Wild dog
So bad wild dog
And I'm coming over you
Like a dog eat dog

She looks so sweet
She's just like a suicide
I wanna taste you now
Come on and do it, do it with me

Like a dog without a bone
I gonna fuckin?move on like a rollin' stone
`Cause I like a dog without your bone
She said, dog eat dog eat

Wild dog
You know what I? talkin?about
Wild dog
So bad wild dog
And I'm coming over you

Wild dog
Wild dog
Wild dog
Wild dog

God damn it I'm a wild...




6. FLY LIKE A LITTLE...

Coming down on a sunset street
I live my life with a silver needle
Feels like I'm falling
`Cause I trapped in a ball and chain

Coming down with a silky steel
The worst kick I took was when you hit my wheels
I'm alive going down to paradise

Little sister won? you follow me down
Fly like an angel on the seven seas
Baby, can't you see that I'm born to loose

Fly like a little dove, dove, dove
And I'm under your skin
I wanna be your man
Come on and show me what you can do

Well, I'm lost in your arms again
Take me home to your mamas bed
My little sister cocaine
Won't you come and love me

Superman came and saw me chained
I called the devil by his name
And felt your blood in my veins
It what it takes to be your man
To be your man

Little sister won't you follow me down
Fly like an angel on the seven seas
Baby, can? you see that I'm born to loose

Fly like a little dove, dove, dove
And I'm under your skin
I wanna be your man
Come on and show me what you can do
What you can

Little sister won't you follow me down
Fly like an angel on the seven seas
Baby, can't you see that I'm born to loose

Fly like a little dove, dove, dove
And I'm under your skin
I wanna be your man
Come on and show me what you can do
I wanna be your man

Come on and love me
I wanna feel you
I wanna be your man

Come feel




7. ELECTRIC SUZY

Baby, baby, I got something for you
Little Suzy come down
Broke my heart so I broke her face
Ain't no way around it
I can be your master

There's something in your eyes
I don't wanna see
`Cause you're electric Suzy
And you're mine
`Til the end of the time
Right `til the end of the time
To the end of the time, time, time
You electrifies me, bitch

Baby, baby, I got something to tell
Little Suzy won't you come down
You broke my heart so I ripped her? out
Ain't no way around it
I can be your master

There's something in your eyes
I don't wanna see
`Cause you're electric Suzy
And you?e mine
`Til the end of the time
Right `til the end of the time
Right `til the end of the time, time, time
Wanna crusify me

`Til the end of the time
`Til the end of the time
`Til the end of the time, time, time
You electrifies me, baby

`Til the end of the time, baby
`Til the end of the time, baby
Time, time, baby

`Til the end of the time
Just electric Suzy
Alright, alright now, baby

`Til the end of the time
She's a really mean, mean, mean girl
I said, little Suzy won? you...
I said, ride on
Come on, come on, come on
Shake it, shake it, shake it, baby




8. KICKIN' UP DUST

Good girls go to heaven
Bad boys go to hell
And I believe in miracles
That's what my Jesus said

Rich man lives in whorehouse
They were always built on sin
But I swear to God that I will tell the truth
If I only knew what it was

On your own with a bad boy smile
Mama, kickin'up dust around you
On your own with a bad boy smile
I'm living my life without you

Good girls go to heaven
Bad boys go to hell
And I believe in miracles
That? what my Jesus said

Rich man lives in whorehouse
They were always built on sin
But I swear to God that I will tell the truth
If I only knew what it was

On your own with a bad boy smile
Mama, kickin'up dust around you
On your own with a bad boy smile
Living my life without you

One day I found my friend
But the old-man didn't know
He prayed to the lord and asked him why
He gave him a son like this

Father couldn? realise
And that really made me blue
Going down on the road to paradise
With a sixpack getting drunk

On your own with a bad boy smile
Mama, kickin'up dust around you
On your own with a bad boy smile
Living my life without you

Good girls go to heaven
Bad boys go to hell
And I believe in miracles
That's what my Jesus said

Rich man lives in whorehouse
They were always built on sin
But I swear to God that I will tell the truth
If I only knew what it was

On your own with a bad boy smile
Mama, kickin'up dust around you
On your own with a bad boy smile
Living my life without you

On your own with a bad boy smile
Mama, kickin'up dust around you
On your own with a bad boy smile
Living my life without you




9. SHOULD I BE DAMNED

She's down and dirty
She's everything a mother wouldn't like to see
Don't you ever come back home to me

Losing my pride, losing my faith
Losing everything that I used to have
Hell dance around you baby

Could I be such a fool myself
Could I, should I

Should I, should I be damned
Baby, don't slap my face again
Little honey, should I be so damned

Man keeps talkin' what I should do
Won't get the fuck out, I don't care about you
I can never come back down again

Losing my love, losing my sex
I leave you, honey, lying on the bed at night
Hell dance around you baby

Could I be such a fool myself

Should I, should I be damned
Baby, don't slap my face again
Little honey, should I be so damned

Should I, should I be damned
Should I be damned

Well, could I be such...

I can't do what you want
I can't talk like the devil in the glass
You don't mean nothing
You don't mean nothing to me

I can? believe what I saw in your eyes
When you cried little sister
People might come and people might go
But do you really wanna be a devils toy again

Should I, should I be damned
Baby, don't slap my face again
Little honey, should I be so damned

Should I, should I be damned
Should I, should I be damned
Should I, should I be damned

Should I be damned




10. FILL UP THIS BAD MACHINE

Well, I've been drivin?around the countryside
Way too many miles
I ain't got no home, no place to sleep
And I rather be alone
And I know what I like
And I know what I feel
Am I dreaming

Sitting home by the telephone
If somebody would give me a call
Do you wanna know why I got this feeling inside
Makes me wanna jump
Going nowhere fast on a one-way train
Livin' in a world of hallucinating angels, yeah

And if I jump inside I will never ever come back home Again
I never trust anybody `cause they only lie to me
And if I try to admit it I will only fool myself
So come on baby wont you fill up this bad machine

There's a place I know and there is always a door
Where we can stay for a day or two
Oh, and it really doesn't matter what you say to me
`Cause I will never ever go home
Going nowhere fast with a circus from hell
Can't you understand that my head is in a million pieces

And if I jump inside I will never ever come back home Again
I never trust anybody `cause they only lie to me
And if I try to admit it I will only fool myself
So come on baby wont you fill up this bad machine
Come fill it with this baby

Hey, ho, let's go
Hey, ho, let's go
Raw power
Can you feel it
Oooh, oh, oh, oh, let's go
Oooh, oh, oh, oh

And if I jump inside I will never ever come back home Again
I never trust anybody `cause they only lie to me
And if I try to admit it I will only fool myself
So come on baby wont you fill up this bad machine
So come on baby wont you fill up this bad machine
So come on baby wont you fill up this bad machine now




11. HEAVEN IN HELL

I know I talk too much
Baby, won't you give it a try
You said to me what good will it be
`Cause I don't really care

And please, baby, don't you see
All the time in the world is for me
If I pack my bags, if I walk out that door
Would you still try to hold on

I know you'll find a better place
I know you'll find another home
I know you'll find some heaven in hell

You made me feel so good
One in a million, baby, tell me it's true
Give me some time, won't you give me a chance
`Cause I can show you what I believe

And nobody will ever know
Sometimes I feel that I'm getting old
You see, money don? mean so much to you
But it sure means something to me

I know you'll find a better place
I know you'll find another home
I know you'll find some heaven in hell

We could be angels
We could just fly away
Baby, just hold me tight
I will make it through the end of the night

Baby, I would make it
Baby, I would make it
We could just fly away
We'll fly away
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I know you'll find a better place
I know you'll find another home
I know you'll find some heaven in hell




12. SHAME

I've been down too many times
I can't feel my bones
I've been down all the time
I would not even feel
If a train came crushin?into my soul
Don't blow me away

Sometimes I need some piece of mind
Shakin' like a dog left behind
Sometimes I get so sick of it all
I would not even feel
If a train came crushin' into my soul

Shame, shame you blew me away
I don(t need no sister to cry for me
I need someone to please
But I don(t need to go down in flames

I can't get my feet on the ground
Jumping around with the devil in my vein
Some motherfucker tried to hold me down with love and Chains
I would not feel
If a train came crushin' into my soul

Shame, shame you blew me away
I don't need no brother to cry for me
`Cause I need someone to please
But I don't need to go down in flames

You like to see when I fly down below
Why don't you borrow my eyes so you can see what I see

What I see
What I see
What I see
Now, look what you've done

It's a shame, shame you blew me away
I don't need no sister to cry for me
I need someone to please
But I don't need to go down in flames

Shame you blew me away
I don't need no brother to cry for me
`Cause I need someone to please
But I don't need, no, I don't need...

It's not the end of the world when the sun goes down
Rise and shine, people, and realise the shocking truth
You all need some resurrection
To rise up the thin road of secret action
And, now get this into your head
Diesel and power, a truck, a church of love
Where the priest is gasoline and the devil is behind the Wheel
Try to break this psycho circus on steel
I'm born to lose, born to ride
And this is how we all look
No trespassing and no way back
This is a one-way, motherfuckin' track
So do you wanna come with me, bitch

Well, it's a shame...




13. LIES

Well, I´ll be your cigarette man
Do whatever I can
Honey, can´t you see at the end of the line there´s a home
So far away
Sittin´ here like a smoke in the rain
I´m trying to figure out why sometimes I can´t tell you
all the things you wanna hear
Oh, yeah, never ever I can walk your garden
You don´t speak, you don´t say a word
It really doesn´t matter anyway
Why am I like a child in the playground
Wanna touch the rain
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
Like you never ever done before
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
I need to hear some more
Some more
Some more
Like you never ever done before
Sometimes I´ve been so close
But all of the sudden memories just seems to disappear
So far away
It touches me to see your graceless moves
On the other hand it kills me so shame on you
To crusify me on your... yeah
Oh, yeah, never ever I can walk your garden
You don´t speak, you don´t say a word
It really doesn´t matter anyway
Why am I like a child in the playground
Wanna touch the rain
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
Like you never ever done before
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
I need to hear some more
Some more
Some more
Like you never ever done before
Well, life can sometimes be such a tragedy
You would not understand
You would not understand
Why you´re bringin´ me down
Oh, yeah, never ever I can walk your garden
You don´t speak, you don´t say
And it really doesn´t matter anyway
Why am I like a child in the playground
Wanna touch the rain
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
Like you never ever done before
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
I need to hear some more
Oh, why can´t you tell me lies
Like you never ever done before
Oh, yeah, can´t you tell me lies
I need to hear some more
Some more
Some more
Like you never ever done before
Some more
Some more
Like you never ever done before
`Cause I´ll be your cigarette man
I do whatever I can
But, honey, can´t you see at the end of the line there´s a Home
Why do I keep telling you these god damn lies?
