1. Demon

Yeah I got a demon
A demon in my heart!

I get the love I get the feeling but then I start to drown
It floats me up to the ceiling but the voices bring me down

I never believe the good is in me
Forever alone you’re gonna be so throw yourself into your vice
The domino falls, the pendulum swings, the animal crawls into the ring
The chaos just multiplies

Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart
Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart

I got a locomotive cursing through my head
A decapitated white dove is flapping in my bed

Scared of the things I knew I could be
Is there a home waiting for me?
Maybe I should draw the line
The domino falls, the pendulum swings, the animal crawls into the ring
The terror lives in my mind

Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart
Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart

Well I tried so hard to beat it but the tension blew my mind
When I tried to flee it felt like suicide, and I could never ever let it go
No I could never ever let it go

Never ever let it go
Never ever let it go

Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart
Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart
Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my heart
Yeah there’s a demon, a demon in my, a demon in my heart
A demon in my heart

2. Breakdown

A girl with mojo, daddy’s sweet flame
Moulded by the rhythm of your grandmother’s cane
You got all the gold that glitters you say
But it just don’t wash off the same

Hallelujah was your middle name
Until you found god had a ball and a chain
So you work every room but it’s always in vain
Cuz you just can’t seem to catch a break

You got your mind on the money and your tears for the fame
Aww keep em coming like some pouring rain
While you be running off your mouth like a saint
There’s eyes on you honey and they’re gonna,
They’re gonna break down your door

Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown
Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown

So will you die of a broken heart?
Because you could not get that showbiz engine to start
A game of subterfuge and it shows no remorse
With you right at the centre of course!

You got your mind on the money and your tears for the fame
Aww keep em coming like some pouring rain
While you be running off your mouth like a saint
There’s eyes on you honey and they’re gonna,
They’re gonna break down your door

Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown
Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown
Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown
Breakdown, Breakdown, Breakdown

Yeah
You got your mind on the money and your tears for the fame
Aww keep em coming like some pouring rain
While you be running off your mouth like a saint
There’s eyes on you honey and they’re gonna,
They’re gonna break down your door

Breakdown your door
Breakdown your door
Breakdown your door

3. Limbo Man

I tell you something that will keep you alive
Don’t tell nobody what you feeling inside
They get the memo and they capitalise
And you just can’t keep em away now

You bit the apple but you don’t like the taste
Go meet your maker and then file a complaint
To be authentic gotta deal in the fakes
Yeah the truth won’t get in the way now

I was a believer now I’m a deceiver
So let me read your open book cuz I’m the limbo man

You can call me
You can call me
You can call me the limbo man
You can call me
Ah you can call me the limbo man

I burn the bodies just before dawn
Scatter the ashes as the priest starts to yawn
I don’t remember are you player or pawn?
Well it makes no difference to me now

Look into the future do you cover your eyes
It’s like pollution in your dreams every night
You wake up naked with a thorn your side
And your faith has started to bleed out

I was a believer now I’m a deceiver
So let me read your open book cuz I’m the limbo man

You can call me
You can call me
You can call me the limbo man
You can call me
Ah you can call me the limbo man

You can call me
You can call me
You can call me the limbo man
You can call me
Ah you can call me the limbo man

Oooh baby give me something to satisfy
Oooh darling a love that’s cursed will do me fine
Oh I need your love and your conviction to clear my mind
But oh honey you give me nothing you give me nothing and that’s all right

Cuz I’m the limbo man
You can call me
You can call me
You can call me the limbo man
You can call me
Ah you can call me the limbo man….
The limbo man…

You can call me alright
You can call me
You can call me, ah you can call me the limbo
You can call me alright
You can call me
You can call me..

4. Dream Alight

I found myself out on my own
Like a dog looking for bones
My heavy heart in doubt
I’m a sword stuck in a stone
I gotta find a place of my own
To keep me from the dark

Oh I’ve been sailing this life it seems
But I’m forever walking tight ropes in my dreams
Yeah yeah yeah

Well oh my baby, I’m not crazy
You just make me feel alive
You can’t take money with you honey
So let’s set this dream alight

So it goes in the blink of an eye
You get burned, you live and die, then your heart floats away
But you gotta give it your all, have yourself a drink and a ball
Find a love that’s here to stay

Oh I’ve been sailing through this life it seems
But I’m forever walking tight ropes in my dreams

Well oh my baby, I’m not crazy
You just make me feel alive
You can’t take money with you honey
So let’s set this dream alight

I carry the load when there ain’t no love to be found
Take you out of the darkness by makin’ that sound
You gotta be bold, you know, you can’t let it all get you down
Until your moment comes around..

Well oh my baby, I’m not crazy
You just make me feel alive
You can’t take money with you honey
So let’s set this dream alight

Well oh my baby, I’m not crazy
You just make me feel alive
You can’t take money with you honey
So let’s set this dream alight

5. Jimmy 2 Times

A bully with a gun taught you everything you know
So it gets kinda hard to take it real slow
He said you be my shadow I’ll teach you how to glow
That was all you needed to know

He saw your blood a-rising
The twinkle in your eye
Said boy just give the finger to the nine to five
When you took the solution you did not realise you was giving up your life

To Jimmy two times he don’t think twice
Jimmy two times you and him always stick together
You say he puts your world to right
But Jimmy two times he got a hold on you forever
Keep on rolling and rolling the dice

He got to know your girlfriend
She said that he was swell
Then he got to know her very very well.
In the land of desperation where you seem to dwell
Hangin upside down in Jimmy’s cell

On the street he used to greet you like a friendly ghost
But now it’s in the alley with a bowie to your throat
Begging for solution why you don’t even know
With Jimmy that’s a how it goes..

Jimmy two times he don’t think twice
Jimmy two times you and him always stick together
You say he puts your world to right
But Jimmy two times he got a hold on you forever

Two times he don’t think twice
Jimmy two times you and him always stick together
You say he puts your world to right
But Jimmy two times he got a hold on you forever
Keep on rolling and rolling the dice
Rolling and rolling the dice
Rolling and rolling the dice
Rolling and rolling the dice

Jimmy two times he don’t think twice
Jimmy two times you and him always stick together
You say he puts your world to right
But Jimmy two times he got a hold on you forever

Two times he don’t think twice
Jimmy two times you and him always stick together
You say he puts your world to right
But Jimmy two times, two times, two times he don’t think twice, oh yeah

He don’t think twice, oh yeah
He don’t think twice, oh yeah
He don’t think twice, oh yeah

6. Rolling

Rolling on and on, your light begins fade
But you’re never alone, never alone

They lay your body down and someone turns to say
He never done wrong, never done wrong

So, am I going insane?
Because I just can’t tell the difference these days

Rolling on and on and on – and your light begins to fade
You used to feel the love but now it’s vanished in the days
Is it good to be home?
Is it good to be home?

You’re rolling on and on, in time you hide away
Your so very cold skeleton bones
They lay your body down into an early grave
Say he could have done more, could have done more

So, am I going insane?
Well I just can’t tell the difference these days.

Rolling on and on and on – and your light begins to fade
You used to feel the love but now it’s vanished in the days
Well is it good to be home?
Is it good to be home?

I’m not going back any other way
I’m not going down like the others say
I’ll see you on the other side, I’ll never fade away

I’m not turning back any other time
I ain’t watching my memories rewind
I’ll see you on the other side I’m never gonna fade away
I’ll see you on the other side I’m never gonna fade away

Rolling on and on and on – and your light begins to fade
You used to feel the love but now it’s vanished in the days
Rolling on and on and on your time is on its way yeah
You feel it slipping, taking you back alone
Is it good to be home?
Is it good to be home? Yeah!
Is it good to be home?
It it good to be home? Yeah!

7. Bourbon Pouring

Like the city after the flood
Lonely souls down in the mud
Everybody trying to find a way

Muddy river moving too fast
All the people take off their masks
I know you’re never gonna do the same

But I just can’t get you out of my frame
I just can’t get you out of my frame

Been washing dishes up past the dawn
I ain’t got no one dragging me home
The sun he got some mighty things to say

Memories all caught up in lies
Still got your picture caged in my mind
I can’t escape the one that got away
Yeah

Well I just can’t get you out of my frame
I just can’t get you out of my frame
No I just can’t get you out of my frame

Out of my frame
Out oh oh oh oh

Like the city after the flood
Lonely souls down in the mud
Everybody trying to find a way

Memories all caught up in lies
Still got your picture caged in my mind
I can’t escape the one that got away

Out of my frame
Out of my frame
Out, oh oh oh woah

8. I've Been Waiting

Oh let my heart fade away
Save my soul for another day

I’ve been waiting for the longest time
I’ve been waiting for the longest time

Oh how I yearn to find a place
Where I don’t burn to escape

I’ve been waiting for the longest time, no!
I’ve been waiting for the longest time, yeah!

Well I been waiting
Well I been waiting
I been waiting for the long long longest time

Well I been waiting
Well I been waiting
I been waiting for the long long longest time

9. She's Gone

Someone better call my old lady
My friends they don’t know who I am
I’m looking for the ghost that betrayed me
Falling through the cracks of mislaid plans

I get back on the road
My heart is filled with bullet holes
I think about the times when I was lonely
Now they’re back again this guitar’s my only friend
I give into desires that don’t console me
Now she’s gone

I’m losing faith in the process
Of getting out of bed every day
The more I look inside I seem to know less
My shadows still standing in my way

I get back on the road
My heart is filled with bullet holes
I think about the times when I was lonely
Now they’re back again this guitar’s my only friend
I give into desires that don’t console me
Now she’s gone

I get back on the road
My heart is filled with bullet holes
I think about the times when I was lonely
Now they’re back again this guitar’s my only friend
I give into desires that don’t console me
Now she’s gone
Now she’s gone

Now she’s gone!
Now she’s gone, yeah yeah yeah!

10. They Don't Know Rock N Roll

No voice, no soul, standing there like a china doll
What’s missing? Mojo, never been touched by a rolling stone

A tin cup Eurovision, dead man’s puppet show
Them fools on the television don’t know rock n roll
Rock n Roll

Suit off, sit tight, on your sofa on a Friday night
You watch the shit circus unfold, come the morning they’ll be limping home

A tin cup Eurovision, dead man’s puppet show
Them fools on the television don’t know rock n roll
Rock n Roll

No voice, no soul, standing there like a china doll
What’s missing? Mojo, them fools on the television don’t know rock n roll

No voice, no soul, standing there like a china doll
What’s missing? Mojo, them fools on the television don’t know rock n roll

No voice, no soul, standing there like a china doll
What’s missing? Mojo, them fools on the television don’t know rock n roll

Rock n Roll
Bring it down!
Rock n Roll

11. Best Believe It

Listen for the siren, tell ya what you need to know

But underneath the surface the city’s bout ready to blow

You best believe it
You best believe I’m alive
You best believe it
You best believe I can fly
I may be working all my life but I will not be denied
I’m forever starting fires in my mind
You best believe I’m alive

Sitting on the mountain looking at the city glow
There ain’t no money and there ain’t no gold
But that ain’t gonna stop me singing my rock n roll tonight!

12. It's A Jam

I gotta women who doesn’t love but fits me like a glove
Everything is rosie apart from the above
She hums hallelujah when she’s giving head
When I look into those eyes, I see an alien instead

I think I got the picture not so long ago
Don’t meditate too much on what makes her garden grow
Things that do come to you and seem just like a dream
Often come disguised as what you want not what you need

It’s a jam, it’s a jam, it’s a gun in my hand
Why I let her drive me crazy man I’ll never understand

It’s a jam, it’s a jam, it’s a gun in my hand
Why I let her drive me crazy man I’ll never understand
Its a jam

Shattered love is fruitful can take you very far
If you ain’t the driver of that crashing car
Play follow the leader with the demons in your head
Discover that in time you’re the one who pulled the thread

I can’t stop chasing false economies
Sex just burns like cancer in my memories
I wake up in the morning and wonder who I am
Who is that sweet girl with a bottle in her hand?

It’s a jam, it’s a jam, it’s a gun in my hand
Why I let her drive me crazy man I’ll never understand

It’s a jam, it’s a jam, it’s a gun in my hand
Why I let her drive me crazy man I’ll never understand
Its a jam

Now I feel much cooler perhaps I could be thawed
If I knew the answer to why we start these wars
In between the cocktails of hurt and jealousy
I wish that she could hear me I wish that I could see

She’s out in the cosmos hung in dire straights
I’m back out on the streets now licking my own face
Got to take the edge off all this loneliness
I’m just walking wounded, staggering at best

It’s a jam
It’s a jam
It’s a jam, aw aw aw aw yeah
It’s a jam, aw aw aw aw awwww…

Yeah it’s a jam, yeah….
