So Sad They Had to Fade

Welcome to your life
There is no turning back
Even while we sleep we will find you
Acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It’s my own desire
It’s my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There is a room where the light won’t find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I’ll be right behind you

So glad we have almost made it
So sad they had to fade
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can’t stand this indecision married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you will never need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Nothing is Worth the Sleep that I’ve Lost

Truly, fuck the world—for all it’s worth—every inch of planet Earth
Fuck myself—don’t leave me out—but don’t get involved, don’t corner me

Inside ulcer
Unjust bastards
File out face first
Meet the lies and see what you are

It’s forcing you down and it’s grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

For every second the pathetic media pisses on me and judges what I am in one paragraph—look here—fuck you all

Expect the worse—you bleeding heart—but kill me first before it starts
Yes, my cock is getting hard
We are born different after all

Invite mayhem
Produce weapons
Shoot out
Burn down
No CNN or media now

It’s forcing you down and it’s grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

All the money in the world couldn’t buy me one second of trust, or an ounce of faith in anything you’re about
Fuck you all

Nothing is worth the sleep that I’ve lost
Apologies are unacceptable now
A blistered revenge awaits in me
This is loveless

Hate

Hate mail is not read
In jail instead

Hate

The Lord knows there is worse
Ignore this curse

Hate

Won’t You Come In From The Rain?

Waiting for someone to show me, but I won’t hold my breath
Nothing left, no control, only pictures of someone I used to know
I gave it all away and I can’t take it back
Here I am: tornado

Every perfect day yet to come I would sacrifice for one more moment with you
I don’t want to waste another day, won’t you come in from the rain?
Because you could be the most beautiful thing to me

You’re worried now with this hurt in your hand
So strange here, I don’t know the meaning
But who cares to know?
All I can say is you know that it’s true

I said all I could say
Would you do it again?
Would you stand on your own leaving me right there, would you?
That’s my rolling stone
Come on, let’s do it again—you have had enough on your own—because maybe there’s something left to find
I have been searching for something left behind
Would you do it again?
Could you do it again?
Would you do it again?

You and I are taking off

You’re worried now with this hurt in your hand
So strange here, I don’t know the meaning
But who cares to know?
All I can say, you know that it’s you who means all the world to me

I know this is where I belong
Forget the warning signs, I know who you are and I’m fine

Waiting for someone
I know we are wrong
You know we are wrong

You’re worried now with this hurt in your hand
So strange here, I don’t know the meaning
But who cares to know?
Can you hear me calling you home?

You’ve got to know that I’ve been calling you home

Be Forewarned, Dear

I Don’t Mind the Pain icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 (track 10 from the Danzig 4 LP by Danzig icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 )

Remember to call my name, I adore it
If you speak my name, I implore it
If with all these things we invoke here, call you out our name—but be forewarned, dear

I don’t mind the pain

We hear you call our name, we adore it
Hear you all these things that we invoke here
If you call our name, rest assured, dear
See you all these things, but be forewarned, dear

I don’t mind the pain

I stay so arcane in the shadows of your brain
Will I come to you again?
Remember that I don’t mind the pain

Hear you call our name, can you afford it?
Wracked with all these things and beyond hope, dear
Remember to call our name and we assure you
Trip with all these things that we invoke here

I don’t mind the pain

And I stay so arcane in the shadows of your brain
Will I come to you again?
Remember that I don’t mind the pain
