To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth

1. To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth

Got a god and her bless. I want everything she offers
and won't settle for less. I see heaven under my feet as
well as over my head. Bet you wish you was already dead.
Always less done than said.

Meet this guy who knows why. But he says, "I know where
you'll go when you die". Told him now I felt for his god and
that I wasn't impressed. You see, I'm already blessed.

I wanna ride. Gun in my hand. God on my side. I've tried.
So far no good. More than a little misunderstood.

Love the fall. No control. They say, "it takes one to know one".
Well I know them all. They say, "stupid is as stupid does". Guess
you'll always be if you ever was.

2. Like this with the devil

There ain't no god that will save you from regret. It's just
that god is in a state of neglect. And it's your goddamn act
that is a major threat.

Salvation won't be rearing it's head, for a fact at least not
in my time. And what good is a song for peace when the fucker
doesn't even rhyme.

I won't be calling. Calling as we level. And when we're falling
I'm like this with the devil.When they're creeping upon you.
Eating dust that you bleed. Don't say I didn't warn you. A toast
to your death to myself 'cuz I'm free. Like this with the devil.

3. Lights out

Midnight, the subway train is here. There's a body on the tracks,
but you're trying not to care. Sensationally wicked it roars on
thru in the night. Look mom ! That body's got no head. It's covered
in blood, do you think the man is dead ? Your stomach turns, it
itches and burns in the night.

It's the devil's night out, do you dare. There ain't no hide out,
do you hear ?

Look out ! He picks out his gun, pulls the trigger with frustration.
Stupidity aside it rings out with a blast in the night. A blown out
brain decorates the wall. Goddamn I thought I'd seen it all. Rush to
the sink, they don't care what you think in the night.

It's the devil's night out, do you dare. It turns you inside out
with fear !

Time heals no wounds it just won't pass, there ain't no promises
that will last. The worlds a ghoul and you are it's shovel in the
night. And it goes without saying. No man will walk without praying,
but it will do you no good unless you've understood, what's going
down here in the night.

It's the devil's night out, do you dare. And they've turned the
lights out do you hear !

4. Wound

I bare my scars with pride. My bones are cold right thru.
The cuts are so deep. I'm on top of the world.

I feel great 'bout my scars. Old habits - hard to break.
The wound is to be. The cuts are so deep.

I feel fine/OK, the world is the key. Scars are marks.
Scars are art.

Salvation's kickin' in. Hellucination breaking free.

The wound is the source. The wound is cause. The wound is time.
The wound is the high !

5. They

Sudden low of an all time high. Willing to believe whatever
gets me by. So, I got with the winning team. But nothing ever
seem to be what it seems.

O yeah. Well I don't care. I'm just to busy getting from here
to there.

I put my hand over the flame. Now, nothing would ever be the
same. One day it's there - one day it's gone. But I still feel
like I'm the lucky one. Yeah !

Y'know how they say, "hey, don't rock a boat if you're in it".
Well, the ship we're all in babe, is sinking by the minute. They
say, "hey, it's all a bunch of bull !". Well, it's just what I've
heard but they shoot every bird that don't sing beatiful.

Everyday victory. Everyday peace. Just them little, little things
that keeps you off your knees. Sunshine of a smile. Subtle if you
please. Them little victories - will keep you off of your knees.

Come have a listen to what they got to say. Y'know me, I'm just
glad when it comes my way. They say, "hey, we only hurt the ones we
love". Well, it's not the kind of comfort I was thinking of.

6. Somewhat peculiar

I don't know where it came from. Just what it meant. It's getting
pretty deep in herefolks. Please let me vent.

Say it doesn't kill you. Will you last a little longer ? But every
time they fight something down, it comes back even stronger.

I don't know where it came from. God knows where it went. I just
find it somewhat peculiar that it's all heaven sent.

Ever get that feeling there's something you're not being told ?
Like your mind's put on hold. While your body is being bought and
sold. Ever felt just a little bit out of control ? Well, god bless
your soul. Pray you never reach a point when your only goal is
feeding a hole.

I don't wanna learn anything new. Already know more than I want to.
Liked things better when I didn't understand them. We got them of
the ground - now we can't land them.



8. Parasight

When all you have's a hammer. All you see is nails. When all
you have's a hammer. And when all else fails. Hit the nails!

When all you have's a buzz-saw. All you see is wood. When all
you have's a buzz-saw. You just wish you could. Yeah, you would !

When all you have's a lighter. All you see's a fuse. And when
you see it burning. You ain't got nothing to loose !

When all you have's a shovel. All you see is graves. When all
you have's a shovel. In hollow pits they will be saved. Light
the fuse !

9. Damn deal done

He's a man. Gonna do what he can to make this world a decent
place. He's a man. Got a great little plan on how to give it
a brand new face. He wants to erase. He wants to replace. He
wants to wipe the scum of the earth off its pretty face.

Didn't wanna be just another voice with an answer. He'd seen
it done before and turn into a cancer. But he was a chancer.
Way romancer. He had such great plans. He ahd such great plans.
To get the damn deal done.

10. Put me out

You break my bones. Crush my head with stones. You dance on
my grave. I am your slave.

You tear out my eyes. Feed me with lies. You piss on my brain.
Drive me insane. I love you babywhen you're dead and you're so red.

Cut off my arms. Bite off my legs. Saw off my head. For mercy
I beg. You love me baby when I'm dead. I'm so red !

11. Just as sad

God's an insect with a six-legged disbelief. Burning bridges
on my Indian Big Chief. Reality is just as sad.

Kinky sex and murder - the way it's got to be. But have you
heard her begging to be free. Reality is just as sad.

12. Boats

Went for the money. No way to please them all. Have had a go.
It just felt so small. Can't wait forever for someone to tuck
you in. With no good name to loose you have everything to win.

O man, when it's good it's great. When bad it's still OK. I'm
just glad when it comes my way.

Reached up to "god". The guy in control and said, "hey man listen,
let's settle this once and for all". Sometimes silence, he said,
is my way of saying no. But look twice and you're told everything
in what I show.

13. Uffe's Horrorshow

A private horrorshow is playing in my head. Movie after
movie until I am....dead !!!

14. Wreckage

Say what ? Well, come again. Do you think you can change
it. It's just a matter of time 'til it all will end. I'm a
wreck - and so are you. We're all wrecked up.I got a date
with the devil and so do you.

Will our bad luck ever turn I doubt it amn I think we're
destined to burn alive, yeah, we have lost but you refuse
to realize it at all cost. And the futures now. Isn't that
tomorrow ? How can a man be so blind to see a wreck is the
only way. I'm a wreck !

Say what. Yeah well, come again. Do you think you can change
it. It's just a matter of time 'til it all will end. I'm a
wreck - and wr're all dead. We're all wrecked up. I'll be
rockin' and rollin' in hell instead !

So put on a smile and I'll light the ignition. This is a real
life, it ain't cinemavision. And yeah, the time's right now it
will never be tomorrow so don't ask how I can fit six billion in
my car, drive it off a cliff. Go out like a dinosaur. Here I am
balanced on the edge and it makes me fucking scared !
