Track Name: One Way Ticket
There are stops along the way,
But no places I wanna stay.
I've paid the full fare,
It's enough to get me there.
I bought a one way ticket.
I see the burning sky.
I know I'm on the right track,
And I know there's no turning back.
No refund, no return,
And all eternity to burn.
I bought a one way ticket,
I see the burning sky.
I bought a one way ticket,
Kiss this bad ass goodbye.
The road is wide and straight,
And that bus ain't never late.
Take a seat there's time to kill,
This is the place where time stands still.
I bought a one way ticket,
I see the burning sky,
I bought a one way ticket,
Kiss this bad ass goodbye.
Track Name: Tits
Was it the money?
Was it the booze?
Was it all the pairs of, fancy shoes?
Was it his own show? Was it the Ritz?
Or was it too much sucking on, teenage tits?
Teenage tits.
Teenage tits.
Teenage tits.
Teenage tits.
Was it the ladies?
Was it the boys?
Was it all the executive toys?
Was it the surgery?
Was it the praise?
Was it too many Bangkok holidays?
'Kok holidays.
'Kok holidays.
'Kok holidays.
'Kok holidays.
Was it the limo?
Was it the dope?
Was it too much perfumed soap?
Was it the candy?
Was it the head?
Lying flat out on his feather bed.
T, I, T, S.
T, I, T, S.
T, I, T, S
T, I, T, S.
Track Name: Black Snow
When I walked out Christmas morning,
I was half asleep and still yawning,
I opened the door and walked out in the street.
I shook my head and rubbed my eyes,
Boy was I in for a big surprise,
The whole world looked like it had just died...
Black snow!
Black snow!
No word of warning,
What a shock for Christmas morning.
Black snow!
Black snow!
From the heavens Hell had torn,
Like the Devil had just been born.
Over the trees and over the ground,
Covering rooftops for miles around,
And evil curtain had been drawn.
There were no church bells ringing,
There were no children singing,
Just a creepy snowman all alone...
Black snow!
Black snow!
No word of warning,
What a shock for Christmas morning.
Black snow!
Black snow!
From the heavens Hell had torn,
Like the Devil had just been born.
Black snow, snow... Black.
Black snow!
Black snow!
No word of warning.
What a shock for Christmas morning.
Black snow!
Black snow!
From the heavens Hell had torn,
Like the Devil had just been born.
Black snow!
Black snow!
Black snow!
Black snow!
Track Name: Stern
Stern daddy, blackened face
Leather belt and a leather brace
Steam powered tall black hat
Sword-stick through a sewer rat
Stern daddy, trousers long
Teeth grinding on a lambs bone
Coal gas, hissing snake
His red face like a raw steak.
Stern daddy, trousers long!
Stern daddy, sword-stick through a sewer rat!
Track Name: Robot Tourist
I am the robot tourist,
I have a bulky frame,
I do not hang around,
I have seen your town.
I am the robot tourist,
I have a wiry brain,
Gone and broke my anchor,
Each eye, a camera.
I have seen your town.
I have seen your town.
I have seen your town...
I am the robot tourist...
Well, the worst thing about all of this is,
I'll never feel like an ordinary automaton,
But if you ask me why,
Then I'll tell you why!
How can you feel, when you're made of steel?
I am made of steel!
I am the robot tourist,
I travel around.
I have photographed your town!
I have photographed your town!
I am the robot tourist!
I am the robot tourist!
Track Name: Nobodys Wife
I might not be very tall,
I might not be good at football,
But at least I'm nobody's wife.
I might be a weedy little shit,
I might not be super-fit,
I might not have a pot in which to piss,
But at least I'm nobody's wife.
Nope.
I might be a figure of fun,
I might not be well hung,
I might be on the bottom rung,
But at least I'm nobody's wife.
I'm nobody's wife, no.
Track Name: Rock Cottage
Uhhh... Rock cottage!
Uhhhh... High wattage!
Uhhh... Bugs bite!
All night!
Uhhh... Hot cottage!
Uhhh... Hot sausage!
Uhhh... High wattage!
Uhhh... Rock cottage!
Roof leaks!
Floor creaks!
Bugs bite!
All night...
Roof leaks!
Floor creaks!
Bugs bite!
All night...
Track Name: The Loozin' Line
It doesn't matter, just how high you climb.
It doesn't matter, you'll come down and find.
Uh huh, the losing line.
It doesn't matter, just how fast you run,
You gotta stop, once that bell has rung,
And drink from the bitter cup, where rivers all run dry.
Uh huh, the losing line!
Uh huh, the losing line!
It doesn't matter, just how hard you try,
So many questions, but only one reply,
Welcome to the place where grown men cry.
Uh huh, the losing line!
Uh huh, the losing line!
Track Name: Come Home To Me
I'll be your friend, help out with things,
I'll fix your car, how about today?
Just being near you helps ease my pain.
I've stood outside your house all night in pouring rain.
Come home to me.

I'd like to help, help you forget,
I know about your friend and all the things he said.
You need a change, I understand.
I can help to pull you from that sinking sand.
Come home to me.
Come home to me.
Love guaranteed! Come home to me.

If you're unhappy, I'll make you glad,
I'll give you all the things you never had.
You'll grow to like me, it won't be long,
Before I'm the one you wanted all along.
Come home to me.
Come home to me.
Love guaranteed! Come home to me.
Love guaranteed! Come home to me.
Depend on me! Come home to me.
You can trust me! Come home to me.
Love guaranteed! Come home to me.
Love guaranteed! Come home to me...
Track Name: The Emperor
The Emperor shows no mercy,
His compassion is incomplete
Enemies perish, heretics burn
Slaves lie prostrate at his feet
Many men have tried oppose him,
But found their brawn no match for brain
Their spirits crushed the game was over,
Their puny efforts were all in vain.
Their puny efforts were all in vain.
The Emperor makes lordly decisions,
His priests support his rule
He feels God-like, immortal
This kind of power is not for fools.
Oh no, this kind of power is not for fools.
