Hollywood :

I've got a picture in my head in my head

It's me and you , we are in bed

(we are in bed)

You'll always be there when I call

(when I call)

You'll always be there most of all.

(all, all, all)

This is not Hollywood,

Like I understood.

This is not Hollywood,

Like, Like, Like.

This is not Hollywood,

Like I understood.

This is not Hollywood,

Like, Like, Like.

Away, Runaway,

is there anybody there?

Away, Runaway,

is there anybody there?

Get away, Get away, Get away!

Get away, Get away, Get away!

I've got a picture in my room,

(in my room)

I will return there I presume.

(should be soon)

The greatest irony of all,

(shoot the wall)

It's not so glamorous at all

(all, all, all)

This is not Hollywood,

Like I understood.

This is not Hollywood,

Like, Like, Like.

This is not Hollywood,

Like I understood.

This is not Hollywood,

Like, Like, Like.

Away, Runaway,

is there anybody there?

Away, Runaway,

is there anybody there?

Get away, Get away, Get away!

Get away, Get away, Get away!

This is not Hollywood

(Runaway)

This is not Hollywood

 


  

Salvation :

To all those people doing lines,

don't do it, don't do it.

Inject your soul with liberty,

it's free, it's free.

To all the kids with heroin eyes *,

don't do it, don't do it.

Because it's not, not what it seems.

No, no it's not, not what it seems

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

To all those parents...

...with sleepless nights,

(sleepless nights)

Tie your kids on to their beds,

clear their heads.

To all the kids with heroin eyes *,

don't do it, don't do it.

Because it's not, not what it seems.

No, no it's not, not what it seems

Salvation, salvation,

salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation,

salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation,

salvation is free.

Salvation, salvation,

salvation is free.

(* could be "To all the kids who'll hear our lies" instead.)

 


 

When You're Gone :

Hold on to love. That is what I do,

Now that I've found you.

And from above, everything's stinking,

Their not around you.

And in the night, I could be helpless

I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex

There's nothing simple,

when I'm not around you.

But, I miss you when you're gone.

That is what I do, Bay, Bay, Bay

And it's going to carry on,

That is what I knew, Bay, Bay, Bay

Hold on to my hand,

I feel I'm sinking, sinking without you.

And to my mind, everything's stinking

Stinking without you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,

I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,

There's nothing simple,

when I'm not around you.

And I miss you when you're gone.

That is what I do, Bay, Bay, Bay

And it's going to carry on,

That is what I do, Bay, Bay, Bay

 


 

Free To Decide :

It's not worth anything more...

...than this at all

I live as I choose

or I will not live at all.

So return to where you've come from.

Return to where you dwell.

Because harassments not my forte,

But you do it very well.

I'm Free To Decide,

I'm Free To Decide

And I'm not so suicidal after all.

I'm Free To Decide,

I'm Free To Decide

And I'm not so suicidal after all.

(At all, at all, at all)

You must have nothing more...

with your time to do.

There's a war in Russia

and Sarejevo, too.

So to hell with want your thinking.

And to hell with your narrow of mind.

You're so distracted from the real thing.

You should leave your life behind.

(behind)

I'm Free To Decide,

I'm Free To Decide

And I'm not so suicidal after all.

I'm Free To Decide,

I'm Free To Decide

And I'm not so suicidal after all.

(At all, at all, at all)

I'm Free To Decide,

I'm Free To Decide

And I'm not so suicidal after all.

(At all, at all, at all)

At all, At all, At all!

 


 

War Child :

Who will save the War Child baby?

Who controls the keys?

The web we weave is thick and sordid.

Fine by me.

At times of war.

We're all the losers,

There's no victory.

We'll shoot to kill, and kill your lover.

Fine by me.

War Child!

Victim of political Pride.

Plant the seed, territorial Greed.

Mind, the War Child.

We should mind, the War Child.

I spent last winter in New York,

And came upon a man.

He was sleeping on the streets

and homeless,

He said, "I fought in Vietnam."

Beneath his shirt he wore the mark,

He bore the mark of Pride.

A two-inch deep incision carved,

Into his side.

War Child!

Victim of political Pride.

Plant the seed, territorial Greed.

Mind, the War Child.

We should mind, the War Child.

Whose the loser now, eh?

Whose the loser now, eh?

We're all the losers now!

We're all the losers now!

War Child, War Child

 


 

Forever Yellow Skies :

Yellow Skies, I can see the Yellow Skies.

See you again, I see you again

In my dreams, in my dreams,

in my dreams, in my dreams.

Morning light, I remember morning light.

Outside my doors, I 'll see you no more.

In my dreams, in my dreams,

in my dreams, in my dreams

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Responsible, Responsible,

Responsible, Responsible.

So black and white,

It's become so black and white.

So insecure, You're so insecure,

That's what you are,

That's what you are,

That's what you are,

That's what you are.

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Responsible, Responsible,

Responsible, Responsible.

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Forever, Forever

I'll be forever holding you.

Responsible, Responsible,

Responsible, Responsible.

 


 

The Rebels :

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen,

We were The Rebels...

...of the Rebel Scene.

We wore Doc Martens in the sun,

Drinking vintage cider having fun.

We were,

drinking vintage cider having fun.

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all!

It wasn't often!

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all!

It wasn't often!

We wore Doc Martens in the snow,

Paint our toenails black

and let our hair grow.

What I am now is what I was then,

I am not more acceptable then them.

I am not more acceptable then them.

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all!

It wasn't often!

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all!

It wasn't often!

It wasn't often, It wasn't often,

It wasn't often, It wasn't often,

It wasn't often, It wasn't often,

It wasn't often, It wasn't often.

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen,

We were The Rebels...

...of the Rebel Scene.

 


 

I Just Shot John Lennon :

It was the fearful night of December 8th,

He was returning home from the studio, late.

He had perceptively known...

...that it wouldn't be nice.

Because in 1980, he paid the price.

John Lennon died, John Lennon died,

John Lennon died! John Lennon died,

John Lennon died, John Lennon died!

With a Smith & Wesson, 38

John Lennon's life was no longer a debate.

He should have stayed at home,

he should have never cared.

And the man who took his life declared,

he said,

"I Just Shot John Lennon!"

He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!"

What a sad and sorry

and sickening sight.

What a sad and sorry

and sickening night,

What a sad and sorry

and sickening sight,

What a sad and sorry

and sickening night!

"I Just Shot John Lennon!"

He said, "I Just Shot John Lennon!"

What a sad and sorry

and sickening sight.

What a sad and sorry

and sickening night,

What a sad and sorry

and sickening sight,

What a sad and sorry

and sickening night!

 


 

Electric Blue :

Electric blue eyes,

where did you come from?

Electric blue eyes, who sent you?

Electric blue eyes, always be near me.

Electric blue eyes, I need you.

Domine, Domine, Deus,

Domine, Adiuva Me,

Domine, Domine, Deus,

Domine, Adiuva Me,

Hey, eh, hey, eh

You should know,

You should know I love you

You should know,

You should know I'm here.

Always be near me, guardian angel,

Always be near me, there's no fear.

Domine, Domine, Deus,

Domine, Adiuva Me,

Domine, Domine, Deus,

Domine, Adiuva Me,

Hey, eh, hey, eh

 


 

I'm Still Remembering :

I'm still remembering the day

I gave my life away.

I'm still remembering the time

You said you'd be mine.

Yesterday was cold and bare

Because you were not there.

Yesterday was cold

My story has been told.

I need your affection all the way.

The world is changing

and has changed away (way).

I try to remain.

I'm trying not to go insane.

I need your affection all the way.

I'm still remembering my life

Before I became your wife.

I'm still remembering the pain

And the mind games.

Reverse psychology, never tainted me.

I didn't sell my soul,

I didn't sell my soul.

I need your affection all the way.

The world is changing

and has changed away (way).

I try to remain.

I'm trying not to go insane.

I need your affection all the way.

They say the cream'll always

Rise to the top.

They say that good people

Are always first to drop.

What of Kurt Cobain,

Will his presence still remain?

Remember J. F. K.,

Ever saintly in a way.

Where are you now?

Where are you now?

Where are you now?

I say, where are you now?

I need your affection all the way.

I need your affection all the way.

I need your affection all the way.

I need your affection all the way.

 


 

Will You Remember? :

Will you remember the dress I wore?

Will you remember my face?

Will you remember the lipstick I wore?

This world is a wonderful place.

Will you remember the black limousine?

Will you remember champagne?

Will you remember

the things that we see?

I will return here again.

Will you remember

the flowers in my hand?

Will you remember my hair?

Will you remember

the future we planned?

The world is not waiting out there.

I won't remember the dress I wore.

I won't remember champagne.

I won't remember

the things that we swore.

I will just love you in vain.

Will you remember?

Will you recall?

Will you remember?

 


  

Joe :

There was a time, I was so lonely. (away)

Remember the time, It was a Friday. (away)

You made me feel fine, We did it my way. (away)

I sat on your knees, every Friday. (away)

(We walked in fields of golden hay)

I still recall you.

(We walked in fields of golden hay)

I see you in the summer.

Joe, Joe

I sat on your chair by the fire. (away)

Transfixed in a stare taking me higher. (away)

Precious years to remember. (away)

Childhood fears I surrender. (away)

(We walked in fields of golden hay)

I still recall you.

(We walked in fields of golden hay)

I see you in the summer.

Joe, Joe

 


 

The Picture I View :

I haven't changed

But my life has

People are strange when it's like as

I did something wrong to them

And I don't even know your name...

(No, I don't even know your name)

I swear that he's good for me,

And I swear he looks after me,

And I swear that he looks out for me...

And I swear that he's good, good, good.

La, la, la, The picture I view

La, la, la, The picture I view

All my plans and promises

Went tumbling down the hill

All my friends and promises

Went tumbling down the hill

They went tumbling down the hill

I haven't changed, but my life has

People are strange when it's like as

I did something wrong to them

And I don't even know your name.

(No, I don't even know your name)

(I don't even know your name)

 


 

Cordell :

Once you ruled my mind

I thought you'd always be there

And I'll always hold on to your face

But everything changes in time

And the answers are not always fair

And I hope

you've gone to a better place

Cordell, Time will tell

They say that you've passed away

And I hope

you've gone to a better place

Time will tell

Time will tell

They say that you've passed away

And I know

that you've gone to a better place

Cordell...Cordell....Cordell...Cordell

Cordell...Cordell....Cordell

Your lover and baby will cry

But you presence will always remain

Is this how it was meant to be?

You meant something more to me

Than what many people will see

And to hell with the industry.

Cordell, Time will tell

They say that you've passed away

And I hope

you've gone to a better place

Time will tell

Time will tell

We all will depart and decay

And we all will return to a better place

Cordell...Cordell.....Cordell....Cordell

Cordell....Cordell....Cordell

 


 

Bosnia :

I would like to state my vision,

Life was so unfair.

We live in our secure surroundings,

And people die out there.

Bosnia, was so unkind,

Sarejevo, change my mind.

And we all call out in despair.

All the love we need isn't there.

And we all sing songs in our rooms,

Sarejevo erects another tomb.

Sarejevo! Sarejevo! Sarejevo! Sarejevo!

Bosnia, was so unkind.

Sarejevo! Sarejevo! Sarejevo!

Bosnia, was so unkind.

Sure, things would change

If we really wanted them to.

No fear for children anymore,

There are babies in their beds.

Terror in their heads,

Love for the love of life!

When do the saints go marching in?

When do the saints go marching in?

When do the saints go marching in?

When do the saints go marching in?

Rummmpatitum, Rummmpatilum,

Traboo, Traboo, Traboo
