WEST RYDER PAUPER LUNATIC ASYLUM (2009)

UNDERDOG

Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

Love in Technicolor sprayed out on walls
Well, I've been pounding at the pavement till there's nothing at all
I got my cloak and dagger in a bar room brawl
See the local loves a fighter, loves a winner to fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

It don't matter, I won't do what you say
You've got the money and the power, I won't go your way
I can't take from the people, they don't matter at all
I'll be waiting in the shadows till the day that you fall

Feels like I'm lost in a moment
I'm always losing to win
Can't get away from the moment
Seems like it's time to begin

Kill me if you dare, hold my head up everywhere
Keep myself right on this train
I'm the underdog, live my life on a lullaby
Keep myself riding on this train

Tell me if you're down, throw your weapons to the ground
Keep myself right on this train
Hey bird you're on the wire, sold yourself for another one
Keep myself riding on this train
Keep myself riding on this train

 

WHERE DID ALL THE LOVE GO

Ever took a punch
In the ribcage sonny?
Never met a soul
Who had no shrine
Keep this all in your mind
And get it inside my window
What do we pick up
Trying to kill each other?
You’re faking it son
Gonna get you tonight
I suck another breath
To the hearts of the Revolution
Coz you still ain’t right

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
(I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
(I bet you can't see it)

Can’t see the signs
Of a real change a commin’
Take another sip
From your hobo’s wine
Get yourself a million miles
From the concrete jungle
This is a time
Full of fear full of anger
A hero's exchange for a telephone line
Whatever happened to the
Youth of this generation?
But you still ain’t right

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
(I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
Oh why

The rivers of the pavement
Are flowing now with blood
The children of the future
Are drowning in the flood

Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
I don’t know why

[Instrumental]

In this social chaos
There’s violence in the air
Gotta keep your wits about you
Be careful not to stare
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Where did all the love go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
(I bet you can't see it)
Where did all the love go?
Now I don’t know why
Oh why
(I bet you can't see it)

FAST FUSE

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I've got no time to love
Just a city to abuse

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I've got no time to love
Just a city to abuse

Come get me
Wicked fines won't arrest me
I'm like Lucifer's child, wild, acid done
Black sunglasses shade the morning sun

Come get me
All you fuckers can't touch me
I'm a hooligan cryer, sire, sit don't scatter,
It don't matter
Give me one, two, three

Gold lightening in the skyline
Gold lightening in the sky

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I've got no time to love
Just a city to abuse

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I've got no time to love
Just a city to abuse

The vultures circle round
They wait above the ground 

Oh
How dare you!
Now it's time to address you
I'm the reason you claim
Shame, stalk my name
See my fist chopping off your reign
It's getting hotter
Now I'm spitting out lava
Well I'm just putting it into words
Just genuine stock
Hear that bomb going tick tick tock

Gold lightning in the skyline
Gold lightning in the sky
Gold lightning in the skyline
Gold lightning in the sky

Oh baby I was born
With a fast fuse
I've got not time to love
Just a city to abuse

In the middle of the night
When they come for you
Where you gonna be?
What you gonna do?

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won't be there

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won't be there

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won't be there

Heaven may come
And heaven may call
But I won't be there

TAKE AIM

Nightmares, oh nightmares come on now
Getting my days all wrong now
Risen from prison an outlaw
Spending our time in the lion's jaw
In the end you sink or swim, I'm eager, I'm eager

Loving, more loving, come on now
Socially biting your tongue now
Run down, oh run down old houses
Feeding the cats to the mouses

Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Can you see me in the way now?
Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Gotta get us out of here

Drop them and give them star prizes
Lock them away in high rises
Held off and called on by truncheons
Rattling keys to the dungeons

Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Can you see me in the way now?
Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Gotta get us out of here

Don't take me over
I bid you all farewell, I've got to leave
Tears on my shovel
Switch me off today

Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Can you see me in the way now?
Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Gotta get us out of here

Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Can you see me in the way now?
Oh take aim now, oh take aim now
Gotta get us out of here

Don't take me over
I bid you all farewell, I've got to leave

THICK AS THIEVES

There we were thick as thieves
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves
We wore stolen hats, fitted soles
Aided by lies amongst the media foes

And hey oh, where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it's a nice show, the ones we perform
Performing it day and night, night

See the lights upon my face
Walking in circles with the human race
And all the little people they want to be free
But I can't get there 'cause I've got you holding me back

And hey oh, where did it go?
When did we lose our sight?
And it's a nice show, the ones we perform
Performing it day and night, night
Let me be free

Gave you all the high skies but you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies but you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies but you gave me night
I gave you all the high skies but you gave me night
Let the lights sing again

There we were thick as thieves
Frightened by shadows and the autumn leaves
Goodbye my sweet, goodbye, goodbye

 

WEST RYDER SILVER BULLET

Then I went down into the basement 
where my friend the maniac busy's himself with his electronic grafiti 
Finally his language touches me 
because he talks to the part of us 
which insists on drawing profiles on prison walls. 
In that moment poetry will be made by everyone 
and there will be emu's in the zone... 

Mist covers the ground 
In the city 
Engine rumbles quiet 
As we drift by 

I wish you could see it 
Through my crooked eye 
Oh your beauty 
Plays me just like a guitar string (it's so true)

I want your touch 
Oh how I want you far too much 
She my baby 
He's my baby 

Ahhhhh [x8] 

Days drift into one 
It's so pretty 
Travelling Wilbury's, Polly's photofits 
And this stolen car 
Is loaded with junk 
It's so dirty 
He'll be the death of me 
But that's ok 

I want your touch 
Oh how I want you far too much 
She my baby 
He's my baby 

Ahhhhh [x8]

 

VLAD THE IMPALER

Face check I walk this beach
I'm frying in the heat in the cauldron stir me
Chomp down my diamond teeth I ain't got
The simple things in life I feel like
You have got to witness
This is your last retreat
My last repeat

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
High class girls hung in elevators
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

Banshie I hear you call
We need to raise the dead we need to raise the people
Cut throat this blood runs thick
It is true the simple things in life have been lost
You have got to witness
We are the last beatniks
The lost heretics

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
Listen up all you masqueraders
Now we have got the floor
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, ROLL THE DICE

I tell you something isn't right 
The way i'm feeling kept me up all night 
I fix myself another drink 
I guess that's crazy i need time to think 
And all the good ones got away 
All the good ones gone to waste 

And I take another hit 
And do I really get my joy stealing? 
All the TV's hypnotised 
All the loonies on the rise 
And oh man what I got to tell you 

Tonight Ladies and Gentlemen 
I roll the dice 
Just gimmie that dice 
It's been so hard working for no one 
I roll the dice 
Just gimmie the dice 

Yeah Yeah 
Yeah Yeah 

Wakey wakey rise and shine 
Put down your souvenirs I think it's time 
We've been dead behind the eyes 
Switching stations as our country dies 

No matter what you do, you know 
The world it keeps on turning 
We never feel a thing 
Come on and meet me at the Carnival 

Tonight Ladies and Gentlemen 
I roll the dice 
Just gimmie that dice 
It's been so hard working for no one 
I roll the dice 
Just gimmie that dice 

Yeah Yeah 
Yeah Yeah 

No matter what you do, you know 
The world it keeps on turning 
We never feel a thing.

SECRET ALPHABETS

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains climb into your eye
Nobody's hurting and nobody's lying
They climb into your eye never to die

They say the man, he used to sail on his journey
And laid a trap so much the pilgrims for their money
He placed his gold all over this world

And in morning as he looked out over Cairo
He makes his process and his smoked them in a barroom
He could not die and we never found out why

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains climb into your eye
Nobody's hurting and nobody's lying
They climb into your eye never to die

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains climb into your eye
Nobody's hurting and nobody's crying
They climb into your eye never to die

No one's getting older
Everybody's feeling young
Journey's almost over now
There's hope for everyone

This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains close
(This is the end of time)
This is the end of the tracks
Where the fountains close
(This is the end of our life)

FIRE

Shake me into the night
And I'm an easy lover
Take me into the fight
And I'm an easy brother
And I'm on fire

Burn my sweet effigy
I'm a road runner
Spill my guts on a wheel
I wanna taste uh-huh
And I'm on fire
And I'm on fire

And I'm on fire...
(I'm going, you tell me, I feel it, I say it
I'm heading back into the tunnel for my soul to burn)
And I'm on fire...
(I'm coming, you coming, no hiding, my feeling
I wanna take it to the highest over me, yeah...)
Whoo Whoo
Whoo Whoo

Wire me up to machines
I'll be your prisoner
Find it hard to believe
You are my murderer
I'm on fire behind you
Heads a fallen sky

And I'm on fire...
(I'm going, you tell me, I feel it, I say it
I'm heading back into the tunnel for my soul to burn)
And I'm on fire...
(I'm coming, you coming, no hiding, my feeling
I wanna take it to the highest over me, yeah...)

And I'm on fire...
I'm on fire...

Move on, you got to move on
You got to hit 'em to the hip
And get your shake on

Move on, you got to move on
You got to hit 'em to the hip
And get your shake on

I feel it, I want it, I'm coming, I tell ya,
I caught the bullet from the heavens to the one you serve,
I'm going, I'm running, out to the highest love
I'm wanna hit you to the hip...

(I'm on fire...)
Move on, you got to move on
You got to hit 'em to the hip
And get your shake on

(I'm on fire...)
Move on, you got to move on
You got to hit 'em to the hip
And get your shake on

 

HAPPINESS

I will follow you now wherever you go
I'll be with you now, stick around forever
And I never wanna see those tears again, no, no
When will you realize that I ain't that tough?

Save what you got, keep it safe, don't ever stop
There's nothing more, it's nothing less
It's all we got, it's happiness, it's happiness
Ain't that right? Ain't that right?

And I will have a thousand dreams of how I care for you
Through these careless dreams, look into the future
And I never wanna see those tears again, no, no
When will you realize that you make me breath out?

Save what you got, keep it safe, don't never stop
It's nothing more, it's nothing less
It's all we got, it's happiness, happiness
Oh, it's always been you, it's always been you

And I know you got to make it right
Handing out my feelings on these goods are too loud
Oh and it don't matter, yeah I pay my dues
And you know there's one thing that keeps us together
It's gonna keep us together now, now, now, now

Save what you got, keep it safe, don't ever stop
It's nothing more, it's nothing less
It's all I got, it's happiness, happiness

 

CUNNY GROPE LANE (JAPAN BONUS TRACK)

Somebody hold their hands out
'Cause my mind has gone
I'm walking through all the debris
'Cause my kite have gone
You can't get through

Prop up your eggs and bacon
With your silver spoon
I saw you play Old Medusa
In the dungeon room
You can't get through

You've got it on the brain!
Go pop your cherry down in Cunny Grope Lane
Crowns! Shatter! King of Spain!
You'll lose your mind down in Cunny Grope Lane

Go get the local doctor
And let's have some fun
I hope I avoid the paupers
On my prison run
Can I watch you?

Rank! Mother! City boy!
Dancing around and jumping for joy
Brother! T-shirt! King of Spain!
You'll lose your mind down in Cunny Grope Lane

 

ROAD KILL CAFE (JAPAN BONUS TRACK)

Making my snacks at the Road Kill Café
Combing my hair with skeleton bone
Cover my shoes and they taste like honey
Cover my scent to the spider and the fly
Cover my scent 'cause spider don't try

Living by the rhythm at the Road Kill Café
You can run for president, straighten up your tie
Open your mind, it'll make you happy
Polish of your booze with potatoes and a pie
A jackknife rabbit just swoop me in the eye

I just want to spend time with you
I just want to spend all my time with you
And if I want you to fight I'll leave
I just wanna see you, I like seeing you

Calling all the freaks to the Road Kill Café
You can leave your babies with your rides by the door
Look at your suit, man, you dress so snappy
Sharpen your machete on a hoodoo drum
Feeding your spaghetti through the barrel of a gun
Feeding your spaghetti through the barrel of a gun

Calling all the freaks to the Road Kill Café
Calling all the freaks to the Road Kill Café
Calling all the freaks to the Road Kill Café
Calling all the freaks to the Road Kill Café
