Track Name: Let my Lady
I didn't let my lady,
she let me down.
She's double crossed me baby,
Medusa's crown.
I always knew she was crazy,
but not like this.
Stay away because my baby's,
the devil's kiss.

I finally left my babe,
in mexico.
She could still be there maybe,
no-one knows.
That's where I found you babe,
you let me in.
That doors been bolted tightly,
for her sins.

Get away from my door.
Get away from my door.

Get away from my door.
Get away from my door,
from my door,
look out child.
Track Name: Awake
Fall into the light of day,
drink in the morning rays,
I'm feeling awake.

Drown under the drops of rain,
I'm feeling anothers pain,
I'm fucking awake.

Run from responsibilities,
and I waited, I wondered, where he is.

breathe,
breathe it in,
breathe it in,
breathe it in.

Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.
Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.


Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.
Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.


Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.
Fall, we'll fall, we'll fall, we all fall.

Wake up now, wake up now, wake up now.

Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake, Awake, Awake.
Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake, Awake, Awake, Awake,
Awake.
Track Name: Free Love
Hold me now,
cause i don't wanna be a part of anyones heart,
I'm in the mood for a gun.

Let me out,
cause the dreams you have, they're taking me under
I'm floating in denial.

Figure out what I'm really talking about,
cause I just wanna get it on.

And if your in doubt,
then pay attention to the following statement,
cause I'm ready to make love.

Free love,
cause i dont wanna be a part of anyones heart.
Free love,
oh wont ya take me far away.

Free love,
cause i dont wanna be a part of anyones heart.

Track Name: Coffee
Well I'm gonna break you, in every way,
Well I'm not your saviour babe, but I've been saved,
and I cant relate to you in anyway,
but im not fake.

Give em one!

Cause I'm unphased, by my passing,
And you've been betrayed by my betrayal,
and I can't relate to your relations,
but I'm gonna fade unless, I wear this motherfucker out.

So I ran away, whilst you were dreaming,
and I wanted to stay babe and pick up the pieces.
When you asked me to wait babe, I'd already been waiting,
I would have stayed darling would that have been cheating.

Well come on and stay, I know you've been waiting.
Well your outta luck babe, cause this coffee its staying.
And I dont give a fuck... with who your sleeping.
These bags and badges their weighing you down and your fading out.


So I ran away, whilst you were dreaming,
and I wanted to stay babe and pick up the pieces.
When you asked me to wait babe, I'd already been waiting,
I would have stayed darling would that have been cheating.
oh ya!

Track Name: Stall on the Milky Way
I met a man in Tennessee,
he was the alter side of me,
he was a man made of stone.

He told me stories of his past,
and how good times they'll never last,
and he destroyed what he called home.

He held a bottle in his hand,
as he walked me through his land,
of pain hurt and misery.

He found his wife and his bro in bed,
and shot them both square in the head,
and now he's caught in purgatory.

He held his hands and said,
everyday he wished that he was dead,
or that he'd never killed that man.

So I sat to comfort him,
and told him to forget sins,
that he could be a better man.

Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before i forget to call, stall on the milkway
Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before i forget to call, stall on the milkway

He turned and looked me in the eye,
as his face began to smile,
he asked me what else could I do.

As I got up to walk away,
I realised I had to stay,
cause my body I just, I couldn't move.

He left a picture on the desk,
my mind was in a fucking mess,
I started to get the taste of lead.

Running out the door I suddenly realised,
three bodies in a pile but all I recognised,
my wife, my bro and I and we were dead.

Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before I forget to call, stall on the milkway
Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before I forget to call, stall on the milkway

Well lord, Well lord, well lord, won't ya stall on the milkyway.
Well lord, Well lord, well lord, won't ya stall on the milkyway.

Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before I forget to call, stall on the milkway
Stall, stall up agaist the wall, before I forget to call, stall on the milkway,

well ya, well ya, well ya, well ya,
well ya, well ya, well ya, well ya.
Track Name: Baby on the Brink
Coming down the bourbon line well she walked into a bar about 5 ft high.

Sat up on a corner stool beside a dude who lit her smoke the bloody fool.

He said buy you a drink or a diamond ring if you take me round the back and make me sing.

She turned and looked him in the eye as his hand slid up the inside of her thigh.

Grabbing half his arm she said, well take me to your car, our find a bed.

He took her hand and led her back to an old GT of chrome and scattered black.

Well she pulled his hair and scratched his eye he said I need for nothing more so let me die.

She said careful boy for what you wish, cause I'm an evil child an unforgiving bitch,
but pull me down into that hole and I'll let you in, and baby you will know... you'll know babe!


Leaning back she took a knife and she held it over her head with both hands,

And with one quick swoop she stabbed his heart as his body shook well his soul it, it fell apart.

One thing you should know my friends is not to mess with a baby on the brink.
Track Name: Shere Khan
Now we gotta run away,
black is back and here to stay,
no-ones gonna get outta here.

Duck and cover, hit the floor,
raiders coming through the door,
somethings got a hold and its fear.

How am I s'possed to leave ya now,
when shot up kingdoms take a bow
peace has left us here to die its all just in your head.

Martial law has hit the streets,
and everywhere is fuck the police
and government is falling down.

When your stuck, here, with.... with Shere Khan!

Time to change and break the line,

Turn your head and walk away
cause war is here and here to stay

Track Name: The Waiting
Here we go we do mean well,
Wait for you to ring the bell,
Raise the price of Gasoline,
Do our best to keep things clean.

We talk, but don't give in,
pay men to hide our sins,
sit back and just relax,
we'll play if ya pay our tax.

(Backing vox - Home)
I'm the man with the want I'm on your side,
I'm to bring the weak from behind, well oh lord...
when there ain't nothing you can do,
I'm here to pull and push you through.

Cause we're on your beck and call
And our morals, they'll never fall
We built your homes and lives
Well we're working for the people

Stand up, but dont be scared now,
Cause our passion, it has been flared
Dont hide behind closed doors
because they are shooting, they're always shooting

Line up against the wall,
We stand proud cause, we're standing tall
We fight for what is right because we...
We are the waiting!

We are the waiting now...
and oh.. we are the waiting now... now... now...
Cause we are the waiting now....
Cause we never wait!
Track Name: Cocaine Sandwich
I don't wait cause I don't wanna wait forever (repeated)

And your soul, will crash into the ground.

And we'll be here always,

And we'll be here always,
as you back into the crowd,
your waiting for the sound,
and your practically always,
back to the old days,
your practically always, back to the, back to the, back to the, back you go!

Cause I dont wanna wait forever,
and I dont wanna wait forever,
cause I'm not gonna wait forever,
Cause i dont wanna wait forever, and ever, and ever, and ever,

I don't wait cause I don't wanna wait forever
I don't wait cause I don't wanna wait forever
I don't wait cause I don't wanna wait forever
I dont wait cause I dont wanna wait for you!
Track Name: Worlds Edge
