Lyrics

1. SWEET AND INNOCENT

You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You look so fine girl
I suppose you always do
So fine and so sweet
It's good to look at you

[Chorus]
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I'll pass around, yeah

You and the fashion
Baby you're as one
It's not long before - it's much more than fun
Yes it's taking chances, but they don't want to know
And since your fine baby left you
Don't know which way to go

[Chorus]

You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You take it good girl
I don't know who will bring you down
Who will bring you down

[Chorus]

2. LIGHTNING TO THE NATIONS

Yes I'm coming
Angel from the sky, put his hand in mine
I can spread you gifts, for golden present time

[Chorus]
I'm going to set you down
I'm going to make it right
I'm going to bring it home
I'll bring you lightning to the nations
To the nations (x3)

From the shores of home, we send a gift of love
To sweet and hopeful hearts, a gift from high above

[Chorus]

Here it comes now
London
New York
To the nations
To the nations
Lightning to the nations




3. AM I EVIL?

My mother was a witch, she was burned alive
Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried
Take her down now, don't wanna see her face
Blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace

[Chorus]
27, everyone was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time
Am I evil? Yes I am
Am I evil? I am man, yes I am

As I watched my mother die, I lost my head
Revenge now I sought, to break with my bread
Taking no chances, you come with me
I'll split you to the bone
Help set you free

[Chorus]

On with the action now, I'll strip your pride
I'll see you burn in hell, I'll see you writhe
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
Like a double dozen before you, smell so sweet

Am I evil? Yes I am
Am I evil? I am man

I'll set my residence, I'll watch your fire
You can come with me, sweet desire
My face is long forgotten, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home

Am I evil? Yes I am
Am I evil? I am man, yes I am

Ooh, mess the guitar

Am I evil? Yes I am
Am I evil? I am man




4. IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT

Steely eyes of a silvery people
Walk behind me, with evil intent.
Up to the tower, I stand alone
Stripped of rank before them I stand.

[Chorus]
What befalls us in the heat of the night? (x2)

Before long, behind adamantine doors,
I taste of the wine of their joy.
Through delirium of a tortured mind
Her face gave me strength to this day.

[Chorus]
In the heat of the night

But love deceived me, and in my despair
I recalled the ring once again
Born of sorrow my cunning revives me,
And I took them with me enchained

[Chorus]
In the heat of the night





5. BORROWED TIME

Lord

On scorched earth return me to be a simple man
I am destined by the gods to walk this land
An embittered poet, a slave to this black blade
Oh, my heart still searches for truth, a lost age

[Chorus]
I have loved, I have lost
I have killed those who have loved me so
I have loved, at what cost
Lord, I don't know
I'm living on borrowed time
I'm living on borrowed time

Oh, Lord

These robes, purple royal, claim me their own
From a city lost in dust, I stand alone
Evil thoughts, evil minds, must I live like I do?
Without fear, on borrowed time she helps me through

[Chorus]

On scorched earth return me to a simple man
I am destined by the gods to walk this land
To search for love, to search for love
All in my heart, is this enough love...
As Satan's child, I stand alone in hand
I'm a nomad of this desert, barren lands
My time is short, wild gods of air and sea
Stand in your corruption, and thrive by sorcery

[Chorus]
Living on borrowed time

Lord, oh, I'm
On borrowed time
Oh bye bye
Oh bye bye




6. DON'T YOU EVER LEAVE ME

Oh Baby, I can recall the day
Close enough to make me feel bad
Seems like only yesterday
Still in my heart it makes me, makes me sad

Oh no, oh no
Don't you ever leave me baby
Oh no, oh no, love
Oh no, oh no
Don't you ever leave me baby
Oh no, oh no, don't you

Lord, I can remember that night I cried
The love we had, you said don't live here no more
You kissed my lips goodbye
And I crawled after you as you closed the door

Oh no, oh no
Don't you ever leave me baby
Oh no, oh no, love
Oh no, oh no
Don't you ever leave me baby
Oh no, oh no, love you

Don't you leave me baby
Don't you, don't you leave me baby
Lord, Don't you leave me baby
Don't you, don't you leave me baby

Lord, Oh oh
Ooh-oh, ohoh, ohoh
Ooh-oh, ohoh, ohoh
Ooh-oh, ohoh, ohoh
Na na na na na na
Ooh-oh, ohoh, ohoh
Ooh-oh, ohoh, ohoh
Na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

Don't you ever leave me
Don't you ever baby
I been crying in my sleep,
Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord

Don't you ever, ever leave, oh Lord
Don't you ever do
Don't you ever, ever leave, oh Lord
Don't you ever do
Oh Lord, oh Lord




7. SUCKING MY LOVE

Over and under, do you go down to the sea
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

8. PLAY IT LOUD

Hey mom, what do you say
I've seen the lights more than what they say
The music's fine, I like it loud
I play my song, loud and proud
Yeah baby, it's alright
It's so late, I'll take my time
Light the lights and burn my brain
Sweeten me, it's just the same

Hey dad, what do you say, oh yeah
You gotta know, know, know what makes my day
You hit it good, you hit it right
I'm going on now, I'll be good tonight
Yeah baby, it's alright
It's so late, I'll take my time
Light the lights and burn my brain
Sweeten me, it's just the same

Play it loud...
Oh I want you to, I'll groove you too
Loud, oh, that's gotta be
You know it's gotta be
