What More Do You Want

[Warwick / James]

 

I got a chip on my shoulder

You can't knock off

If you and make me run

I'll just walk

The system tries to legislate

Can't break the wings that we wear

Yellow brick road leads to nothin'

I don't care

 

[Chorus:]

If I bleed in buckets

Would I be your debutante

Tell me what more,

What more do you want?

 

Dollar signs are for the blind

You can't break destiny

You can take away my freedom

But you know I'll always be free,

You can all say that you love me

But love is just a four letter word

Talkin' bout me degeneration

Sounds so absurd

 

[Chorus]

 

If I dropped my disguise

Would you put up a front

Tell me what more,

What more do you want?

 

It ain't about the fortune

It ain't about the vice

As long as I got the groove

Then I'll be alright

 

Still got a chip on my shoulder

You can call it attitude

Long as you label me nothing

Then I've got nothing to lose

You can all say that you love me

But love is just a four letter word

And talkin' bout my degeneration

Sounds so absurd

 

[Chorus]

 

If I dropped my disguise

Would you put up a front

Tell me what more

What more do you want?

Power and glory

Freedom and love

If I got it all then

What more do you want?

 

 

Hell To Pay

[Warwick]

 

It's hard to believe when your dead inside

It's hard to believe that it's good to be alive

Well I've been down so long

And now I wanna break free

Wanna break these chains

They keep puttin' on me

How long will the rain

Keep fallin' down on me

Cause I got something to say

When I get outta here

There'll be hell to pay

 

[Chorus:]

Hell to pay

Hell to pay

When you come my way

There'll be hell to pay

 

I've loved many and trusted few

I been fucked up and crazy too

A blond bitch came to ease my mind

We got it on and I'm feeling fine

You think you're so righteous

Lookin' down on me

You wanna kiss my ass

But when my back is turned

You wanna see me bleed

You wanna see me burn

And there'll be...

 

[Chorus]

 

I lose my mind so I can talk to the mindless

I take my love anyway I find it

Caught in the West End colours in my head

Screamin' at the asphalt to take me to bed

You bought yourself a little mercy for a while

Well I'm a serpent God with a love tattoo

Son of a bitch let loose on you

And there'll be...

 

[Chorus]

 

Hell to pay

Hell to pay

When you come my way

They'll be hell to pay

Well you can take my heart

Take my soul

But you better start believing that I want it all

Or there'll be hell to pay

 

How long will the rain keep falling down on me

Man, I don't give two fucks what you say

Cause when I get outta here there'll be

Hell to pay

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Loaded

[Warwick]

 

Loaded in the boulevard of broken dreams



White lightning soul serene

Can't seem to find my way

No I don't have the time

'cause I don't know the day

 

What you see is what you get

These things I do I don't regret

 

[Chorus:]

Gettin' loaded

Every fuckin' time

Getting loaded

Loaded down

 

Under my skin like a rose tattoo

This rose ain't red, man, this bitch is blue

From no mean city down to bullshit town

Going round in the underground

 

Outta sight and outta mind

I can't see that love is blind

 

[Chorus]

 

I'm just a crazy mixed up little kid

I never meant to do the things I did

Please believe me when I lie to you

I'm so far gone my soul's black and blue

 

Well I'm a hit and run problem child

I'm halfway to hell and still alive

Everything's free if you got the money

You can keep the milk I'll take the honey

 

What you see is what you get

These things I do I don't regret

Outta sight and outta mind

I can't see that love is blind

 

[Chorus]

 

Oh, I need you baby, Lord I need you now

Do what you want, do it anyhow

God it's too late to save me

'cause I'm already gone

I'm hooked into your love machine

Honey turn it on

 

She destroys me

She destroys me soul

She destroys me

Oh, and I want it all

 

Oh, I need you baby, Lord I need you now

Do what you want to, do it anyhow

Beat up Chevys kickin'

She kills me in the back

Just one look from you sweet child

Gives me a heart attack

 

She destroys me

She destroys me soul

She destroys me

Oh, and I want it all

 

 

"Powertrippin'" (1993)

 

Addiction

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

You, you're not justified

To take my flesh and blood child

And rape my pride

 

I, I got a holocaust in my soul

You tried to shape me

But I broke the mould

 

My beliefs flow like blood from a stone

As I fight to stay within the dream

That rusts inside your soul

 

[Chorus:]

Realize what you're giving me

Is feeding my addiction

 

You, love everything you're shown

It's times these you gotta

Keep us with the Jones's

Entertaining my ideas

I haven't felt this good in years

Shining on your crucifix

The love you preach

Is the hell you kissed

 

[Chorus]

 

Realize what you're giving me

Justify all your casualties

Realize I'm gonna break these chains

Justify, don't take my love in vain

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Possession

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

It doesn't trouble me

So why should it trouble you

Save your roses for the dead

I'll lick the honey from your thorns

I'm feeling up

I'm looking down

My angels beat my devils

Now I'll lay my doubts in waste

 

What I believe

Is what I need

What I believe

 

Can't be convicted

By a rhyme without a reason

Someone always loves you

Even if it is yourself

Below my dick

There's neither truth or religion

My indignance has flown

To better things

 

What I believe

Is what I need

What I believe

Is keepin' my spirit alive

 

[Chorus:]

Give me

Give me possession

 

When will you learn to let it ride

You got no guts

You'll get no glory child

Your rusty soul bleeds Coca-cola blood

And you try to tell me

It's the real thing

 

What I believe

Is what I need

Is keeping my spirit alive

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Over The Edge

[lyrics: Warwick / James - music: Warwick]

 

Seems like all your heroes

Dance among the dead

I used to want to join them

Think I'll live instead

Living seems so easy

Distorted point of view

Why won't you acknowledge

The hell that we've been through and

 

Change - Change

Change for the better

Change what you feel inside

 

[Chorus:]

You're pushin' me over the edge

You're pushin' me over the edge

You lift me up take me to the ledge

You're pushin' me over the edge

 

Life could be so easy

If you see things my way

Save me from tomorrow

Someday things are gonna have to

 

Change - Change

Change for the better

Change what you feel inside

 

[Chorus]

 

Grab a hold of the reins

Suicidal precision

Going down again Dead man's intuition

Another book that I almost read

When I flipped to the last page

The hero was dead

 

Life could be so easy

Reasons to my rhymes

Lovers came to heal me

And left me crucified

 

Change - Change

Change for the better

Change what you feel inside

 

[Chorus:]

You're pushin' me over the edge

You're pushin' me over the edge

You lift me up take me to the ledge

You're pushin' me over the edge

You're pushing me over the edge

Bleeding my soul killing my head

You're pushing me over the edge

 

 

4. Jesus Loves You... But I Don't

[lyrics / music - Warwick]

 

I never wanted

I never needed

I never begged

And I never pleaded

To a god unknown

That I won't let in

Cos religion is business

And there's money in sin

 

You're blind and offended

When reality hurts

But I've never seen Jesus

Inside a church

And I've prayed

I won't pay to be saved

Buying a brief burst of heaven

 

Immaculate deceptions

Going on everyday

Still you follow the clowns

Who give the circus away

Reaching for something

That's never been felt

And they're tightening their grip

On your bible belt

 

Dead eye disciples

Who sin too deep

Jesus loves you

But his love don't come cheap

And you pray

Yeah, you pray to be saved

Buying a brief burst of heaven

 

I never wanted

I never needed

I never begged

And I never pleaded

Pained by beliefs

Of lies and deceits

When cash must be shown

To this god unknown

And we pray

We're too frightened to stray

Buying a brief burst of heaven

 

Jesus loves you

But I don't

 

Jesus loves you

But I don't

Jesus loves you

Kill your idols

 

Religion induced insanities

Pained by beliefs

Pained by beliefs

That I don't believe anymore

 

 

Sick And Wired

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Friesen / Warwick]

 

I feel uneasy

What you don't know can hurt you

Only lies behind your back

I feel infected, take another blast

Got a rosary of razor wire

And my future tense has passed

 

[Pre-chorus:]

There's too much nothing

To be left in so much doubt

Too much nothing's

Something I can live without

 

[Chorus:]

I need somebody to use

God I've tried so hard

I want somebody to bleed

Cos I'm so sick and wired

 

I feel uneasy

A kinda freedom's hard to find

No train of thought on

A one track mind

 

[Chorus:]

I need somebody to use

God I've tried so hard

I want somebody to bleed

Cos I'm so sick and wired

I need somebody to use

I get so uninspired

I want somebody to bleed

Cos I'm so sick and wired

 

Hiding the scars

Of my own intentions

So sick and tired

Of these soul pretensions

 

[Pre-chorus & chorus]

 

 

6. Powertrippin'

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Munroe]

 

Temptation rising in my soul

I've been counting on my bones

Meet thy maker, time to end

They're playing Jesus Christ again

 

Gods, guns and gasoline

Coke adds life, conscience clean

T.V. babies, horsepower mind

Shooting up kills the time

 

[Chorus:]

I want something real

I need, I feel

Powertrippin'

 

Get the needle miss the point

Just say no! now pass the joint

Holyroller blown away

H.I.V. C.I.A.

 

[Chorus:]

I want something real

I need, I feel

Powertrippin'

 

Shine on

 

 

7. Takin' Hold

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

Reading the bible in a cheap hotel

Am I in Heaven or a decadent hell?

I got the anti-Christ on my TV screen

Selling household gods that I don't need

 

Give me something I can hold on to

This love, hate, love I'm going through

 

[Chorus:]

Taking Hold

Taking it all the way

Taking hold

Taking hold of my beliefs

 

My culture clashed and it ain't no fun

Today I feel like I need a gun

Now the Woodstock nation's the Pepsi generation

If it kills me I'll find my salvation

 

I hope to God that my hope won't die

Am I just too low to high

 

[Chorus]

 

I love the things I used to kill

I hate the way I used to feel

I was lying through my teeth

Taking hold of my beliefs

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Out Of Season

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / London / Munroe]

 

Season's changing like my mind

In the room of my wants killing time

You called me up to put me down

Fill my head and I hope I drown

 

Covering the bruises

With too much gloss

Paying the price

When I can't stand the cost

 

[Chorus:]

I'm out of season

Feeling out of place

Out of season

I'm out of faith

 

Lying back scratching the sky

Wasted but I can't get high

Right here, right now won't let me be

Right here, right now means shit to me

 

Got no reservations

Living hand to mouth

When feeding on frustration

Means eating your heart out

 

[Chorus]

 

Driving the needle of my mind

Into the heart of it all

 

Throwing light on a dark horse

Fire walking through blazing thoughts

I'm kicking tomorrow into today

Tainted adrenalin drifts away

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Lifeblood

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

Something's gotta give

Something's gotta give right now

You're so addicted to

Self-righteous indignation

Breaking the back of love

Then you bleed into temptation

 

Try and understand

That there's a price to pay

If you lust for life

You can't drain away my....

 

[Chorus:]

Lifeblood

Coz I'm staying high

Lifeblood

Burning in my veins

I ain't dying to die

 

Something's gotta give

A turned on revelation

In your blood-shot mind

You wanna save your life

I wanna spend mine

 

And your damming rivers

Tryin' to kill the flow

Your drowning sorrows

But they're sinking too slow in this

 

[Chorus]

 

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees

One nail drives another deep inside of me

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Instinct

[lyrics: Warwick / James - music: Friesen / London]

 

A new day rising

And I'm sinking slow

I've been following my instincts

To the corners of her soul

 

You want it

Need it

Give it

Take it as it comes

Teach me how to fuck

Without the indignation

Gonna lick the flame

Coz I can't resist temptation

 

[Chorus:]

You find it hard to swallow

Swallow my pride

It's a love like hell

 

Crying in her mind's eye

About the damage done

I can't hold back my kingdom

When I know it's gonna come

 

You want it...... etc

 

Teach me how to fuck

Spare me degradation

If I knew how to relax

I wouldn't need sedation

 

[Chorus]

 

You want it...... etc

 

Teach me how to fuck

Senseless stimulation

Can desire be fulfilled

In a no win situation?

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Meathook

[lyrics: Warwick - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

So come on join the resurrection

Does my conscience bother you

Screwing the world without protection

It's the corporate thing to do

 

You'd better start believin'

That it's just another dream

Killin' in the name of love

 

They put you down for freakin' freely

Coz they need someone to blame

So cut the crap and see more clearly

A world of difference is just the same

 

You gotta give it

You've gotta give it 'til it hurts

They're trippin' on your destiny

 

[Chorus:]

Don't fight it

Feel it

Do what you will

 

I' got a nerve and you're on it

Yeah what I want is what I lack

I hung my hang-ups on a meathook

That I've got buried in your back

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Eye To Eye

[lyrics: Warwick / Friesen - music: Warwick / Friesen]

 

What the fuck is going on?

You've been high and mighty now

For far too long

And I know the reasons why

You saw too many clouds

And not enough sky

 

Hoe does it feel?

How does it feel?

How does it feel to be a problem?

 

[Chorus:]

You stoned me to my soul

Like fucking for virginity

We don't see

Eye to Eye

 

What will it take to make you see?

That all the bones I picked with you

Belonged to me

So where the fuck are you coming from

If ignorance is bliss

You must be comfortably dumb

 

[Chorus]

 

[Chorus:]

You stoned me to my soul

Like fucking for virginity

We don't see

So just go forth and multiply

Coz we don't fucking see

Eye to Eye

 

 

"Crank" (1994)

Ultraviolence

 

Don't give it all away

Don't give it all away

I tried to save myself

But you wrote me of anyway

When will I feel like I wanted to

What in the world has come over you

What in the world are we going to do

 

[Chorus:]

Nothing left to say

Nothing left to use

Nothing left to give

Nothing left

Nothing left to prove

This only gives me frustration

I pile it in my mind

I almost had a weakness

And you almost made me smile

It's just a small town life sentence

And I tried to drown it out, you're taking this the wrong way

And you think that it's alright

 

[Chorus]

 

I left this place the way I found it

Everything the same

When I was young I didn't know what I wanted

It's nice to know I haven't changed

Don't give it all away

[Chorus]

Wrench

 

I found it hard to believe

Got all caught up being freed

Everything that I had

You wrenched it out of my hands

 

[Chorus:]

Yeah, you got me wrong

You never even tried

To change your way of thinking

Now you better decide

Whose side are you on?

 

When the tension breaks

And lying's as natural as breathing

I'm going to invite you right down

To rise to the occasion

 

Why don't you say what you mean?

Why don't you show what you feel

Tainted by your own self doubt

Say you hate to leave, well let me help you out

 

[Chorus]

 

 

The Unreal Thing

 

You're the unreal thing

In the safety of your own delusions

You preach it but you don't believe it

I never wanted to be what you needed

What gives

What gives you the right

Picking up the pieces

Until you get the rest of my life

 

[Chorus:]

Backbiter

You're the unreal thing

 

So have a toke and a smile

And ease your junkfood mind

Who needs entertainment

When the walls are here to climb

 

I knew

I knew it would come to this

I've been hanging on for weeks

By the skin of my beliefs

So come on and cut me down

You're just a...

 

[Chorus]

 

I'm not afraid of being wrong

I'm just scared of being right

 

[Chorus:]

Backbiter

You're the unreal thing

You can't beat the feeling

 

 

Jonestown Mind

 

You're the Jesus that didn't get nailed

Everyone loves a righteous cause

I got everything that I need to be free

I got masturbation and cable TV

 

[Chorus:]

I know, I know

I know you got a Jonestown mind

I couldn't change it if I tried

 

Another day in the life of a dead man

I hope you're happy now

You got no hope, but you got enough rope

Just to keep on hanging around

 

[Chorus]

 

Trained to drain

Why you can't explain

You're everything that you don't want to be

You're just chocking on your coca-cola

Chocking on your dreams

 

I know, I know

I know you got a Jonestown mind

You're the Jesus that didn't get nailed

 

[Chorus]

 

 

Move Right In

 

It's all so fucking pure

That I can see right through

Saw myself for the first time in years

With no room without a view

 

Well I'm not the only one spoilt by mistakes

How much damage do you think it takes?

 

[Chorus:]

Looking for a way out

Want to lose your skin

I got to move

Move right in

 

We're all out for a killing

Forgot the safety catch

Wipe the smile from my Irish eyes

And tell me it's a lack

 

So please don't try to do me any favours

It's just that sometimes life can make me nervous

 

[Chorus]

 

It's just a token of infection

That runs in the family

Accidentally born without a purpose

And just dying to be free

 

I was reaching down to pull myself back up

When all the time I know that I'm fucked

 

[Chorus]

 

Crank And Deceit

 

It makes no fucking difference

If it's all the fucking same

I swear to God that I

Don't believe a fucking thing

 

I don't want to sleep

3 A.M. knows my secret

I could have been anyone

But I'm just somebody I used to be

 

[Pre-chorus:]

Want this need this

Hate this love this

Needfreak

Want this need this

Hate this love this

Fuck this

 

[Chorus:]

I've been up for weeks

I have been losing sleep

On crank and deceit

 

I want you to feel this too

What makes you think I give a fuck

Well maybe I'm just paranoid

Am I paranoid enough

 

[Pre-chorus + chorus]

 

You know me better than I know myself

 

I've been up for weeks

I've been losing sleep

Dirt starts smelling sweet

Feeling obsolete

On crank and deceit
