Somewhere Now

I’m running late to somewhere now that I don’t want to be
Where the future and promises ain’t what it used to be
I never wanted to compromise or bargain with my soul
How did a life on the wild side ever get so dull?

All grown up and medicated
I’m high on cellular waves
I put the « riot » in patriot
And we all die in threes

I got a seat in the middle of the road
I’m gonna take my time
I shop online so I can vote
At the speed of life
I’m like a drone way up in the sky
I’m a shooting star
There’s a soldier that’s freaking out
P.S., this is war

All grown up and medicated
I’m high on cellular waves
I put the « riot » in patriot
And we all die in threes

All we want is money and guns
A new catastrophe
Here goes nothing when
There’s nothing to lose
It’s a small price we pay
When we all dies in threes

Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now

Hallelujah I found my soul
Under the sofa pillow
Congratulations I found myself
Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now


Bang Bang
I get my kicks and I want to start a rager
I want to dance like I’m on the video
I got a fever for the violent behavior
I’m sweating bullets like a modern Romeo

Bang Bang! Give me fame
Shoot me up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
You’re dead! I’m well fed
Give me death or give me head
Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier

I testify like a lullaby of memories
Broadcasting live and it’s on my radio
I got my photo bomb, I got my Vietnam
I love a lie just like anybody else

Bang Bang! Give me fame
Shoot me up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
You’re dead! I’m well fed
Give me death or give me head
Broadcasting from my room and playing with my toys

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hurrah (bang bang), hurrah (bang bang)
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier

I want to be like the soldiers on the screen
It’s my private holy war
Oh baby baby this is Viva Vendetta
For this is love or it’s World War Zero

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hurrah (bang bang), hurrah (bang bang)
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier

I want to be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hurrah (bang bang), hurrah (bang bang)
The hero of the hour
Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier


Revolution Radio

Scream with your hands up in the sky
Like you want to testify
For the life that’s been deleted
Sing like a rebel’s lullaby
Under the stars and stripes
For the lost souls that were cheated

We will be seen but not be heard

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
And the headline
My love’s bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline
Legalize the truth

Give me rage like there’s teargas in the crowd
Do you wanna live out loud?
But the air is barely breathing
Rise of the slums to the obsolete
The dawn of the new airwaves
For the anti-social media

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
And the headline
My love’s bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline
Legalize the truth

We will be seen but not be heard
We are the songs of the disturbed

We are revolution radio
Operation no control
And the headline
My love’s bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline
Legalize the truth


Say Goodbye
Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Goodbye to the ones that we love

Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love

Violence on the rise
Like a bullet in the sky
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Kindred spirits sing
For the sick and suffering
The city of damage control

This is how we roll

Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the ones in control

Teach your children well
From the bottom of the well
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Hear the children sing
For the sick and suffering
The city of damage control
This is how we roll

Violence on the rise
Like a bullet in the sky
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Kindred spirits sing
For the sick and suffering
The city on damage control

This is how we…

Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say a prayer for the ones we love
Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love

This is how we…

Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say a prayer for the ones we love
Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love

This is how we…


Outlaws
Life after youth
Fading in twilight
The dawn of a criminal in bloom
First love
First forgiveness
We were delinquents
Freaks of a faded memory

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We’re outlaws of redemption

Baby hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
Outlaws are forever

Scars
Broken hearts
Breaking in cars
Running in the light of the moon
Lost souls
Bottle rockets
All that we wanted
It’s for our life beyond the stars

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We’re outlaws of redemption baby

Hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
We outlaws are forever baby

I’ve got no supervision
Nothing will change my spirits raised to hell
I plead my innocence
I bleed my innocence
But that’s my first defense when you are young

Outlaws
When we were forever young
When we were outlaws
We’re outlaws of redemption baby

Hooligans
We destroyed suburbia
When we were outlaws
We outlaws are forever

I found a knife by the railroad track
You took a train and you can’t go back
Forever now
Forever now
You’ll roam


Bouncing Off the Wall

Concrete dream
I wanna hear you scream

Covered in gasoline
Sleeping in reverse
And everybody’s bouncing off the walls

Bombs away
It’s just another day
Of ideal threats
The secret alphabet
And I wouldn’t sweat it
And everybody’s bouncing off the walls

I am bouncing off the walls

Concrete kiss
Come on and do the twist
My radio
My little exorcist
We’re all getting pissed
And everybody’s bouncing off the walls

Cause it’s all that I want
And I want to be free
I got satan riding next to me
Cause we’re all bloody freaks
and we’ll give you the creeps
Chasing fireflies and zeros

Cause it’s all that I want
And I want to be free
I got satan riding next to me
Cause we’re all bloody freaks
and we’ll give you the creeps
Chasing fireflies and zeros


Still Breathing
I’m like a child looking off in the horizon
I’m like an ambulance that’s turning on the sirens
Oh, I’m still alive

I’m like a soldier coming home for the first time
I dodged a bullet and I walked across a landmine
Oh, I’m still alive

Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away

My way to you

I’m like a junkie tying off for the last time
I’m like a loser that’s betting on his last dime
Oh, I’m still alive

I’m like a son that was raised without a father
I’m like a mother barely keeping it together
Oh, I’m still alive

Am I bleeding
Am I bleeding from the storm?
Just shine a light into the wreckage
So far away away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away away

As I walked out on the ledge
Are you scared to death to live
I’ve been running all my life
Just to find a home that’s for the restless
And the truth that’s in the message
Making my way away away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away

Cause I’m still breathing
Cause I’m still breathing on my own
My head’s above the rain and roses
Making my way away

My way to you


Youngblood

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
She’s my little young blood

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
Punch drunk and young blood

She’s a loner
Not a stoner
Bleeding heart and soul of Miss Teresa
Supernova
Cherry cola
She’s the cedar in the trees of Minnesota

I’m a rough boy
’round the edges
Getting drunk and falling into hedges
She’s my weakness
Fucking genius
Swear to god and I’m not even superstitious

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
She my little young blood

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
Punch drunk and young blood

I want to hold you like a gun
We’ll shoot the moon into the sun
Alright
Alright

Are you stranded
Like I’m stranded
Do you wanna watch the world fall to pieces

Are you broken
Like I’m broken
Are you restless
She said « Fuck you I’m from Oakland »

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
She’s my little young blood

Young blood
Young blood
Young blood
Punch drunk and young blood


Too Dumb To Die
Oh, oh
I loved you
Oh, oh
I do

I got a sentimental illness for you
Please don’t go away
Oh yeah

I was a high school atom bomb
Goin’ off on the weekends
Smoking dope and mowing lawns
And I hated all the new trends

Me and my friends sang woah-oh-oh-oh-oh
It’s to the middle of the road
At least it’s better than here

Looking for a cause
Well all I got was Santa Claus
I’m hanging on a dream
That’s too dumb to die

I feel like a cello
Lost somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
Too scared to dream
But too dumb to die

My daddy always was on strike
Goin’ off with the teamsters
He said that everything will be all right
Not every Sunday can be Easter

The picket line screamed woah-oh-oh-oh-oh
Don’t cross
Don’t cross the line because
You’ll be a scab not a martyr

Looking for a cause
Well all I got was camouflage
I’m hanging on a dream
That’s too dumb to die

I feel like a cello
Lost somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
Too scared to dream
But too dumb to…

Looking for a cause
Well all I got was camouflage
I’m hanging on a dream
That’s too dumb to die

I feel like a cello
Lost somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
Too scared to dream
But too dumb to die


Troubled Times
What good is love and peace on Earth
When it’s exclusive
Where’s the truth in the written word
If no one reads it

A new day dawning
Comes without warning
So don’t blink twice

We live in troubled times

What part of history we’ve learned
When it’s repeated
Some things we’ll never overcome
If we don’t seek it

The world stops turning
Paradise burning
So don’t blink twice

We live in troubled times

We run for cover
Like a skyscraper’s falling down
And then I wonder
Like a troubled mind

What good is love and peace on Earth
When it’s exclusive
Where’s the truth in the written word
If no one reads it

A new day dawning
Comes without warning
So don’t blink twice

We live in troubled times


Forever Now

My name is Billie and I’m freaking out
I thought before I was now I can’t really figure it out
I sit alone with my thoughts and prayers
Screaming my memories as if I was never there

Standing at the edge of the world
It’s giving me the chills
Looking down the edge of the world
Lost in a tangle, it’s freaking me out
Burning lights and blackouts.

From the edge of the world
From the edge of the world

I’m like a punk rocker on labor day
How the hell did I work so hard to perform this way
I’ve never learned to read or write so well
But I can play the guitar until it hurts like hell

Standing at the edge of the world
It’s giving me the chills
Looking down the edge of the world
Lost in a tangle, it’s freaking me out
Burning lights and blackouts

From the edge of the world
From the edge of the world

If this is what you call the good life
I want a better way to die
If this is what you call the good life
I want a better way to die

Oh I
Don’t want to think about tomorrow
Don’t want to think about the road
It doesn’t matter anyway

Oh I
I want to start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
And put it off another day

I want a new conspiracy
And the silence of a thousand cries
So hurry up
I want a better way to die

I’m running late to somewhere now where I don’t want to be
Where the future and promises ain’t what it used to be
I never wanted to compromise or bargain with my soul
How did a life on the wild side ever get so full

Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now
Somewhere now

Oh I
Don’t want to think about tomorrow
Don’t want to think about the road
It doesn’t matter anyway

Oh I
I want to start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
And put it off another day

(I ain’t gonna stand in line no more!)
Oh I
Don’t want to think about tomorrow
Don’t want to think about the road
It doesn’t matter anyway

(I ain’t gonna stand in line no more!)
Oh I
I want to start a revolution
I want to hear it on my radio
And put it off another day

 


Ordinary World
Where can I find the city of shining light
In an ordinary world?
How can I leave a buried treasure behind
In an ordinary world?

The days into years roll by
It’s where that I live until I die
Ordinary world

What would you wish if you saw a shooting star
In an ordinary world?
I’ve walked to the end of the earth and afar
In an ordinary world

Baby, I don’t have much
But what we have is more than enough
Ordinary world

Where can I find the city of shining light?
In an ordinary world
How can I leave a buried treasure behind?
In an ordinary world

Baby, I don’t have much
But what we have is more than enough
Ordinary world
