BABES IN BUDAPEST

VERSE 1
Babes in Budapest
Put your libido to the test
Strange fascination, trials and tribulations
Rockin Budapest babes ‘cross the nation

She’s got a friend, don’t want to pretend
Man I’m hanging out, I didn’t mean to offend
Ain’t no inhibition, I got that double vision
Take you on a ride now I’m on a mission

B SECTION
And I, Can’t, See, Straight
And it’s, Much, Too, Late
And I Don’t, Know, Why
She’s getting me high….

CHORUS
Babes, In Budapest
Babes, In Budapest
They’re the girls that I like the best
Babes, In Budapest

VERSE 2
Mama don’t hide your honey tonight
I’m gonna take her out
Gonna feel alright
Gonna take out your little girl
Take her on a rocket ride around the world

I used to be so satisfied
Til I went on that Buddah ride
Now I heard it all
Rumors and tales
Gonna get it on, Gonna get it on

BABY NOW LOVE ME
VERSE
I’m always thinking of you
Can’t get you out of my mind

A few more drinks and
You won’t be suspicious
The thought of dining with
Your corpse delicious

Maybe you don’t understand
You might not come up for air
Been on the bottom so long

You’re a nice guy but you got bad luck (yeah)
We’re gonna make it so you don’t wake up (evah)

CHORUS OUT

YOU’RE TOO FAMILIAR

VERSE 1
It’s because I have lived
On without you for a season
That I now, see you for
the man you are
And it makes Perfect sense, I’m
No longer in your debt
That I run, run, run
So far away Hey, hey, hey

You’ve become a troll
I’ve played a role
Won’t last forever
There’ll come a time
I draw the line
It’s now or never
CHORUS (2X)
Once it gets started
You’re too familiar
Sound like a broken record
It’s your decision
VERSE 2
An alarm, just might sound
If you drag me to the ground
And remove whatever’s
Getting in your way
It’s not you that I fear
I try not to drown you out in my tears
Smoke a cigarette
I’m here to stay

Try to forget (Forever and a day)
So serious (All work and no play)
Eat out my heart (Well if it’s edible)

It’s bombs away (You’re so ….. )

What do you want (I wanna fly away)
Where will you go (We’re getting outta here)

WAITING

VERSE 1
Learning days are over
Emptiness from within
Only thoughts of summer matter now
Look at yourself staring back from a mirror
Things are yet to come on,
so come on make it clearer
Spread yourself out on the sand
it’s time to reach for the clouds

CHORUS
Waiting for so Long, Yes I’m waiting
Waiting for so Long, Yes I am
I’ve been waiting for so Long, You got me waiting for your love

VERSE 2
Pictures on a table
Frameworks for your life
Mesmerized by different points of you
Out of a cage like a bird in the air
The lessons you’ve learned
growing old in a chair
Eye to eye, sea to sea,
whoever said life was fair

CHORUS – SOLO

VERSE 3
Memories await you
Come in from the cold
Gently the winds of change will blow
Out of a cage
like a bird in the air
The lessons you’ve learned
growing old in a chair
Eye to eye, sea to sea,
whoever said life was fair

It’s time to stop the fooling around
Gonna change the world today

CHORUS OUT

ELEVATED

Oh wont you go on home
Give yourself a break
You keep going off
That’s no way to be

Get a place of your own
Way out in space
Where you can see the stars
And not your grave

Over and over again
It’s just my way to talk you down

How many times does it take you to be
Just like it used to be

Hanging from your waste
A trail of broken hearts
And shattered glass

Off a burning bridge
I wont be there
To break your fall

CHORUS

THE TOWER

VERSE 1
From Kings and Queens to all the things
That make my life the worst
I’ve got a job to do, and that’s see you dead
I just hope I get there first
I’ve beat you once, I’ll do it twice
The damage has been done
You best be sure, it’s never premature
For me to say that I have won

CHORUS
Seek and ye shall find
I’m gonna find what I’m looking for
Seek and ye shall find
I’m never satisfied until I get some more
Seek and ye shall find
Like a revolving door
Seek and ye shall find
That goes round, and round, and round…..

TURNAROUND
You’re going down
Feel my power
Locked in the tower

VERSE 2
When I find you it will be your doom
I promise this you’ll see
The tower looms, I’ll lock you up
and throw away the key
You’re such a pain, you’re inside my head,
It’s time you be expunged
Let chaos reign, you’re cooped in
Everlasting detention

CHORUS

TURNAROUND – SOLO

CHORUS

TURNAROUND

SNAKESKIN ALLIGATOR

VERSE 1
Seems like I’ve been walking
Oh it must be days now
Talking to myself
My snakeskin start to wear out
Coming to a crossroads
Looking for some action
Feeling like a dead duck
Time that someone found me

Fighting to remember
Trying to recover
Dirt gets in my eyes
Snakeskin Alligator
Seems like a disaster
Dreaming of a better world
Praying to the heavens
Fighting for my girl.

B SECTION
Is there an answer to my pain?
I won’t see your face again

CHORUS
(The devil in disguise) – I’m Snakeskin Alligator
(You’re feeling like a dead duck) – I’m no collaborator
(When smoke gets in your eyes) – I’m Snakeskin Alligator
(You’re running into bad luck) – No collaborator
(The devil is…)

VERSE 2
Looking for some shelter
Out here in the open
Running towards the trouble
Having problems coping
The ice cold truth is waiting
Taking all these chances
Vengeance all around me
Snakeskin Necromancer

Time to blow the roof off
Train has left the station
Snakeskin Alligator
No time left for waiting
Strike so fast it’s frightening
Last chance for this planet
Lighting up the sky is
Snakeskin Necromancer

B SECTION

CHORUS / SOLO / CHORUS OUT

VALENTINE

VERSE 1
I’m go downtown
Let’s go see what’s around
I got no alibi
Because I want to get high
Instead of feeling so low
My true intentions, starting to show
My jawbones start to sag
I buy my happiness in a bag

CHORUS
I’m your Valentine
I’m your Valentine
The razor’s edge is oh so fine
I am your, Valentine

VERSE 2
I think I’m getting sick
Got to get better quick
No these feelings ain’t true
I can’t go out there when I feel like I do
Yeah I’ve been thrashing, all night long
There’s got to be something very wrong
Oh baby you’ve got what I need
What can you do, what can you do for me

CHORUS

JAM (B-E 4x)

CHORUS OUT w/SOLO

I am your Valentine (repeat)

DYING INSIDE

VERSE 1
I’m dying inside
Feel so alone
I cry every night
It’s time that I go
Little sister,
I can’t keep going on
Think of me always
And the good things that I’ve done

B SECTION 1
And when I look up to the sky
Never found the reason why
While silently I’m

CHORUS
… dying inside (Whistles)
Dying inside (Whistles)

VERSE 2
Little Sister
It’s time for me to go
You’ll hear me someday
On your subspace radio
This song’s for you
Unhappy as I am
If there’s a next life
I hope I’ll see you, hope to see you

B SECTION

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Little Sister
The time is drawing near
With my last breath
I’ll whisper in your ear
Millions of miles
Too far away to tell
My destination is it
Heaven or hell, heaven or hell

CHORUS OUT (repeat)

ONE LAST SECOND CHANCE

VERSE 1
Up in the Sky, a bluebird learns to fly
From an egg, to the air, in a day
As the sun sets, I watch your silhouette
But the whites of your eyes give you away

CHORUS 1
I’m giving your love
One Last Second Chance
I’m giving your love
One Last Second Chance

VERSE 2
View from a room, I look up at the moon
And I say things I don’t want you to hear
Feel so alone, Before you’re here you’ve got to go
And when I want to talk you disappear

CHORUS

SOLO

VERSE 3
Once in a while, I think of you and smile
But that, now all seems so long ago
If on a street, by chance we are to meet
I will say, those four words and you will know

CHORUS w/SOLO OUT

HUNGRY

VERSE 1
Baby it’s the same old story
You’ve got me out of my mind
Every time I’m near you girl
You’ve got me hypnotized

B SECTION
You’ve taking me to a place I’ve never been
You helped me find the strength I had within

CHORUS
And I’m hungry
Hungry for your love, baby I said
Hungry
Hungry for your love

VERSE 1
We got ourselves a situation
One that’s getting out of control
You got me so my head keeps
Spinning round and round

B SECTION

CHORUS

SOLO

PEDAL D w/CHORUS OUT

I’m hungry (repeat)

THE LAST TIME

VERSE 1
Is that your one last cigarette?
I hope it’s better than the rest
The world comes crashing down, and I get so excited
Wrap my arms around you, Yeah you know I realize
You’re my best friend, want you next to me when
Grab your guns the time’s come, I’ll be there to rumble

CHORUS 2x
Now this is the last time
Always the last time
Until I see you
I’ll see you again

VERSE 2
And in the corner of your mind
Trunk loads of promises you’ll find
When we first arrived here, I was so suspicious
Always asking questions, now it’s time to say bye
Maybe some way, we’ll make it to the runway
We’re stepping out in style
We’re going out together

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I’m getting lonely
And I’m trying to sleep
I can hear the raindrops on the window pane
And I’m getting worried
So I close my eyes
And I think of what the future holds for us

SOLO

CHORUS OUT
