Biters - The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be

Artist: Biters
Release: The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be


1. Let It Roll

If fear is the beast that you gotta slay
Then you gotta face it everyday
So I raise up my fists and throw them
Until I can’t keep goin’

I’d be lyin’ if I said I didn’t think twice
But baby I’m here and I’m rollin’ the dice
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody wants to die

You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight, you’ll lose control
You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight, you’ll never know
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, let it roll

Well I still got my rebel yell
I’ve been through hell
I’ve blazed a trail
You take a risk you might lose
But buyin’ in ain’t payin’ your dues

I know it’s safer standin’ on the sidelines
But baby you know that ain’t my style
I’d rather live burnin’ like the sun
Than die livin’ on the run

You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight, you’ll lose control
You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight
You’ll never know
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, let it roll

You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight, you’lll lose control
You gotta let it rock, let it roll
Don’t hold too tight, you’ll never know
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, let it roll

2. Stone Cold Love

Baby, you’re like a record machine
You turn me on and then you spin me round
It’s what you do to me
You kinda smile like a reptile
You slide and shake, you turn me like a dial
It’s what you do to me
And every night you got me cryin’ out for more

You got my head runnin’ wild
From your stone cold love
My heart’s on fire
From your stone cold love
A fever’s rising high, I’m burning up
From stone cold love

So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love
So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love

Poison me with your cold blooded kiss
I still got the taste dripping from my lips
It’s what you did to me
Now I’m tangled up in your web
You sucked, sucked all the blood from my neck
It’s what you did to me
And every night you got me cryin’ out for more

You got my head runnin’ wild
From your stone cold love
My heart’s on fire
From your stone cold love
A fever’s rising high, I’m burning up
From stone cold love

So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love
So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love

You got my head runnin’ wild
From your stone cold love
My heart’s on fire, from your stone cold love
A fever’s rising high, I’m burning up
A fever’s rising high I’m burning up
A fever’s rising high I’m burning up
From stone cold love

So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love
So cold, so cold, so cold
Stone cold love

3. Callin' You Home

I wanna light up the dark
Like a flame from a spark
I wanna view from the stars
Sometimes you gotta bleed
Before you get what you need
Then everybody wants a piece
And when they all want a piece of your heart

Tell me where do you go
When you’re bought and you’re sold?
Caught in between the cracks of a dream
That keeps callin’ you home

You been drinking from the well
Thought you’d never be for sale
Now the cheque’s in the mail
Say you want me around
But you treat me like a clown
Going up or going down
And they all wanna eat your heart

Tell me where do you go
When you’re bought and you’re sold?
Caught in between the cracks of a dream
That keeps callin’ you home

Where do you go
When you’re bought and you’re sold?
Caught in between the cracks of a dream
That keeps callin’ you home

Where do you go
When you’re bought and you’re sold?
Caught in between the cracks of a dream
That keeps callin’ you home

4. Don't Turn This Good Heart Bad

It feels so easy, it seems so right
But I’ve got the demons and you got the light
I left you there waiting, you waited all night
Standing there drippin’ alone in the rain
Baby you fell in love with a runaway
I bet you never thought that you would hate me
Don’t look at me and say baby

Don’t turn this good heart bad
Don’t make me hurt like that
Oh no, she said baby
Don’t paint this red heart black
Don’t tear me up like that
Don’t turn this good heart bad

Baby I ain’t tryin’ to mess you around
But you already knew I’m from the wrong side of town
And all you ever wanted to do was save me
Don’t look at me and say baby

Don’t turn this good heart bad
Don’t make me hurt like that
Oh no, she said baby
Don’t paint this red heart black
Don’t tear me up like that
Don’t turn this good heart bad

5. Gypsy Rose

She’s my gypsy rose
A runaround soul, gypsy rose
She’s like a rolling stone
A ramblin’ road, gypsy rose

So stay with me, ’cause we all have dreams
And time lasts forever when you’re young
But you run so fast, nothing can last

She’s my gypsy rose
A runaround soul, gyspy rose
She’s like a rolling stone
A ramblin’ road, gypsy rose

The moon and stars are chained to your heart
The nights last forever when you’re gone
But you run so fast, nothing can last

She’s my gypsy rose
A runaround soul, gyspy rose
She’s like a rolling stone
A ramblin’ road, gypsy rose

6. No Stranger To Heartache

I’ve been trampled on, torn apart
Yeah I’ve been left for dead
You knocked me down, but not for long
‘Cos I’ll be back again

Yeah we all wanna be wanted
But I ain’t that broken hearted

I’m no stranger to heartache, oh yeah
I ain’t a stranger to heartache
No I ain’t, no I ain’t a stranger to heartache

I’ve made my way through the cluttered streets of wandering lost souls
The memories that make you bleed will never let you go

Yeah we all wanna be wanted
But don’t forget where you started

I’m no stranger to heartache, oh yeah
I ain’t a stranger to heartache
No I ain’t, no I ain’t, a stranger to heartache

Oh yeah, don’t it feel like we’ve been here before, yeah before
Oh yeah, don’t it feel like we’ve been here before, yeah before, yeah before….
Alright!

We all wanna be wanted, but don’t forget where you started

I’m no stranger to heartache, oh yeah
I ain’t a stranger to heartache
No I ain’t, no I ain’t a stranger to heartache

7. Vulture City

Brats in battalions by the thousands
Like witches at black masses
Standin’ in line takin’ rations from all of the fascists
Yeah, the fascists

Manic depression, suicidal tendencies
Panic, aggression, alcohol dependencies

I said I gotta get out of vulture city
When the lights go down, it ain’t very pretty
When ya got nothin’ to lose
There’s blood on the avenue
It ain’t pretty, nawwwww in vulture city

They gotta update their social status
They gotta latch to the latest fashion
You know you’re wastin’ light for the self destruction blues
Yeah, you

Mindless obsession, self-made losers
Loudmouth bitches, braindead users

I said I gotta get out of vulture city
When the lights go down
It ain’t very pretty
When ya got nothin’ to lose
There’s blood on the avenue
It ain’t pretty, nawwww in vulture city

It ain’t pretty, in vulture city
It ain’t pretty, in vulture city
It ain’t pretty

8. Hollywood

Some say they’re content letting dreams be dreams
And others say, no not today, and never change routines
But I don’t believe we were made this way
‘Cos secretly inside we’re all the same

Some want it for the money
Some want it for the fame
Some want it for the glamour life
The chance to sign their name
We all wanna feel like we all left our mark
‘Cos everybody wants to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard

A million stories told a million times, all fighting to be heard
We compromise to stay alive, no matter if it hurts
But I still believe these scars are not in vain
Then suddenly the pain don’t feel the same

Some want it for the money
Some want it for the fame
Some want it for the glamour life
The chance to sign their name
We all wanna feel like we all left our mark
‘Cos every body wants to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard
On Hollywood Boulevard

Dancin’ on the stars tonight
Leaving all the fools behind
Say it’s gonna be alright

Some want it for the money
Some want it for the fame
Some want it for the glamour life
The chance to sign their name
We all wanna feel like we all left our mark
‘Cos everybody wants to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard
On Hollywood Boulevard

Everybody wants a star
Everybody wants a star on Hollywood Boulevard
Everybody wants a star on Hollywood Boulevard
Everybody wants a star
Everybody wants a star on Hollywood Boulevard

9. Chasin' The Feeling

It ain’t too hard for you to play the blues
When you’re the one that lives ’em
It ain’t too hard to sing about a broken heart
When you’re the one that gives ’em
But I keep lookin’ for that one thing
To cut me loose and set me free

I’m still chasin’ the feeling, climbin’ the ceiling
I gotta get it before it’s gone
I’m chasin’, chasin’ the feeling

I just keep shinin’ like gold
I got the feelin’ in my bones
And I ain’t ever had a future to lose
So baby I keep howlin’ at the moon

But I keep lookin’ for that one thing
To cut me loose and set me free

I’m still chasin’ the feeling, climbin’ the ceiling
I gotta get it before it’s gone
I’m chasin’, chasin’ the feeling

I got so many scars
Out on the boulevard
I gotta get it before it’s gone
Chasin’, chasin’ the feeling

10. Goin' Back To Georgia

My bones are ragged, my soul is weak
My eyes are tired, I need some sleep
The thought of you waitin’ keeps me hangin’ on
So I’m goin’ back to Georgia
You know it’s been so long

So I’m goin’ back to Georgia
I’m comin’ home to you
Baby, I’m so tired of runnin’
But I’m runnin’ back to you
When you see me in the mornin’
I’ve ran the whole night through
I’m goin’ back to Georgia
And I’m comin’ home to you
I’m comin’ home

I rolled into town with just the clothes on my back
I haven’t got a dollar and my heart, it hurts so bad
I live an endless ramble, goin’ from town to town
My whole life’s been a gamble until you came around

So I’m goin’ back to Georgia
I’m comin’ home to you
I’m so tired of runnin’, but I’m runnin’ back to you
When you see me in the mornin’, I’ve ran the whole night through
I’m goin’ back to Georgia
And I’m comin’ home to you
I’m comin’ home
I’m comin’ home

Yeah I’m goin’ back to Georgia
I’m runnin’ back to you
I’m comin’ home

So I’m goin’ back to Georgia
I’m comin’ home to you
I’m so tired of runnin’, but I’m runnin’ back to you
When you see me in the mornin’, I’ve ran the whole night through
I’m goin’ back to Georgia
And I’m comin’ home to you
I’m comin’ home
I’m comin’ home
