They Can't Kill Us All Watch the neon sunset Bathe in the afterglow Are we having fun yet? If ya have to ask you'll never know Chorus We are the unclaimed Unwashed and profane We're like a freight train And baby, they can't kill us all Watch the cold moon rising From the wreckage of your dreams They're gonna launch a dragnet We're wanted dead or deceased Chorus Hellbent for leather Been here forever We stick together Cause baby, they can't kill us all Icons and pirates Love unrequited We weren't invited But baby they can't kill us all

Gypsy Dancer 04:17
She was a gypsy dancer, on a sideshow stage If I had to venture, I'd guess she's underage Her mother stood behind her, talkin' voodoo slang Her father orchestrated the whole shebang She was a gypsy dancer, she had a heart of ice You could look but never - touch the merchandise She had an eye for trouble, her pale skin so fair She locked my eyes in her vacant stare She was a gypsy dancer, from south of Tupelo She had all the answers, most of them were no Her mother stood beside her, talkin' voodoo slang Her father orchestrated the whole shebang

The Summer of Love is buried In a shallow grave just off Highway 61 Walked along the watchtower, and we watched the world explode The ones who came for peace were met with guns Chorus Down The Rabbit Hole - chasing dust and diamonds All this way for nothing, hiding in strawberry fields Down The Rabbit Hole - cling like rust to iron We took the long way out of town riding on our broken wheels Inspired by your generation, you can spread your wings But we'll just shoot you from the sky Forget forgiveness, we won't go down without a fight Don't fire till you see the whites of their lies Free to speak your minds, by the founding fathers ratified You can't beat that with a stick, but those Chicago cops sure tried Riots in Emerald City, burn that mother to the ground Let the wizard light the way to where you lay your freedom down

Cheap lipstick on a million dollar face There's no excuse for stupid in the information age I've got a name and everybody's gonna know it I've got a second chance and this time I ain't gonna blow it On the road to nowhere and nobody's gonna slow me down Chorus There's eyes in every shadow And they're sending in the clowns If you try to fight the power They're gonna shoot you down Out there in the trenches With your guitar and amplifier Another fallen hero Tangled in the razor wire Cause you can't flame out if you never set the world on fire Chorus There's eyes in every shadow And they're sending in the clowns If you're talking revolution We can burn this mother down Out there in the trenches With your guitar and amplifier Another fallen hero Tangled in the razor wire Cause you can't flame out if you never set the world on fire Dead man walking on the line of good and evil Dream girl walking thru the killing fields of love The neon sun is blinding and the night goes on for days The avenue's a freak show and the whole damn world's a stage Walk among the righteous and they'll screw you over anyway Chorus There's eyes in every shadow And they're sending in the clowns If you're talking revolution We can burn this mother down Out there in the trenches With your guitar and amplifier Another fallen hero Tangled in the razor wire Cause you can't flame out if you never set the world on fire Chorus There's eyes in every shadow And they're sending in the clowns If you try to change the system They're gonna try to shoot you down Out there in the trenches With your guitar and amplifier Another fallen angel Tangled in the razor wire Cause you can't flame out if you never set the world on fire

I'm comfortable in my head, how 'bout you? I won't roll over and play dead, how 'bout you? I won't leave anything unsaid, how 'bout you? I'll rest in peace when I'm dead, how 'bout you? Chorus I got a shotgun mouth and a heart of leather I'll live forever in the lexicon A trashcan soul full of rock and roll I got love like a neutron bomb My memories are hazy, how 'bout you? But I can still do crazy, how 'bout you? Don't care if they hate me, how 'bout you? I sleep like a baby, how 'bout you? I'm comfortable in my head, how 'bout you? I won't roll over and play dead, how 'bout you? I won't leave anything unsaid, how 'bout you? I'll rest in peace when I'm dead, how 'bout you?

Stereo 102 04:42
I am the all-night DJ on Stereo 102 Here till dawn, spinning your favorite oldies just for you Across the city , across the state But nobody hears me cause it's so damn late Is there anybody out there , is my message getting thru ? Coming at you over the airwaves on Stereo 102 I'm here cause I've got nothing , so I've got nothing left to lose I’ve lost my mind, I’m on the skids I’ve lost control , I'm off the grid But still I'd call it even if I could get you to … (Come on, turn it up!) Chorus Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh I am the all-night DJ on Stereo 102 I'm here till dawn, spinning your favorite oldies just for you 50,000 watts of power, but who's gonna know that at this hour Is there anybody out there, is my message getting thru ? CHORUS Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh oh Turn up your radio -- oh oh BRIDGE : Don't touch that dial Won't you listen for a while I'll give my heart and soul Though it's only rock and roll (Heart and soul) Chorus OUTRO: 50,000 watts of power Across the city, across the state

Another Friday night and I'm out in the street Bail and a bar tab, what else could ya need There's a beauty in the corner tryin' to catch my eye But I know all about her and I ain't that high She thinks that she's exotic But the right word is psychotic Chorus Dumpster fires and trainwrecks Always start with a pretty face Three chords and a puff of smoke And it disappears without a trace It was back in my heyday 'fore the dream got frayed One foot on the gas, and one in the grave I met a suicide bombshell sinkin' like a stone She said "You're damned if ya do and damned if you don't" Her voice was hypnotic But the words were idiotic Chorus Dumpster fires and trainwrecks Always start with a pretty face Three chords and a puff of smoke And it disappears without a trace

You Nuke Me 04:39
Even the odd get lucky Sometimes the Joker draws a queen Used to want to be somebody Now I just want you here with me Chorus You nuke me Baby you blow me away You nuke me But I like the way you radiate When I fade into nothing You're the only dream I had that came true You turn dogshit to diamonds What's a poor boy to do, cause

Rat Bastard 04:56
Like a top hat at a shotgun wedding, always just a little out of place When it's late and the sun is setting, you're left standing outside of the gates All coiled up like a viper, never going in for the kill Ya wanna dance gotta pay the piper, the price is highest for the cheapest thrills Pre Chorus You were born to be a rebel, every thought is a speech When the playing field's on the level you find it's all just out of your reach Chorus Grasping for a moment you'll never capture Chatter like a monkey sittin' in a tree In the realm of epic fail you're the master Rat Bastard Heart of glass and a head of granite, always landing flat on your face You're not much of a moving target, with concrete shoes and feet of clay Trouble comes and it gives no warning, boxing shadows and you lose the fight It's just another Sunday morning, you can't remember Saturday night You were born to be a rebel, living life on the fringe What you got ain't all that special, the world's gonna eat you and grin
