Lyrics by JoAnne Volumn V 

 

 

We Could Be Lovers

If we could steal time for just one day. You’d be my king and I your lady. If we could steal time for just one day, I’d love you forever. My hero. My baby.

Chorus

Cause we could be lovers. We could be one. In a world faraway with no setting sun. We could be lovers. We could be one. In a place without anger, pain or guns.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We can be us forever and ever. No apologies. No hurt to sever. In a time we saved just for us. To dream of our future and feed on our lust.

Chorus

Cause we could be lovers. We could be one. In a world faraway with no setting sun. We could be lovers. We could be one. In a place without anger, pain or guns.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So kiss me now before we fade away. Before our lives are over. Before we’re old and gray. No need to worry its just you and me. In a world of kaos, but love sets you free.

Chorus

Cause we could be lovers. We could be one. In a world faraway with no setting sun. We could be lovers. We could be one. In a place without anger, or and guns.

Push Those Buttons Baby

 

The world is crazy so I don’t understand, why you think you hold the truth in the palm of your hand. So I guess it’s over, but let me explain, that it’s not just you who can play head games.

Chorus

So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby, but you won’t leave a mark. So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby. The dogs of Hell stand guard.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The way I needed you drove me insane. You had me hotter than a stolen freight train. But now it’s you whose in the cold. A man with no home, friends or soul.

Chorus

So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby, but you won’t leave a mark. So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby. The dogs of Hell stand guard.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You think you know it all, but aint got a clue, that it takes a real man to wear big man boots. So you keep on playing those silly games. The ones that get you hurt but drive the ladies insane.

Chorus

So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby, but you won’t leave a mark. So push those buttons baby. Push them hard. Push those buttons baby. The dogs of Hell stand guard.

Zero

 

Everybody thinks they’re so fucking special. If they only saw themselves they’d know they’re bound to fail. Oh Yeah. Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

Chorus

Cause your love life is zero and no one wants you. Cause you’re part of the problem. You aint nobody’s hero. So you prey on the weak, the lonely and the doomed, waiting for your seat in Hell, but there’s just no more room.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You’re sitting on the thrown thinking of what to do. You don’t know your next move. Just know your life is screwed.

Chorus

Cause your love life is zero and no one wants you. Cause you’re part of the problem. You aint nobody’s hero. So you prey on the weak, the lonely and the doomed, waiting for your seat in Hell, but there’s just no more room.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s nowhere to go and no one to fill your needs, so you drink away the pain, hoping that sets you free.

Chorus

Cause your love life is zero and no one wants you. Cause you’re part of the problem. You aint nobody’s hero. So you prey on the weak, the lonely and the doomed, waiting for your seat in Hell, but there’s just no more room.

  *  *  *  *

 

The Thing

I can’t feel you when we love. I can’t hear a god damn sound. I don’t know you when you lie. I can’t think when you’re around.

Chorus

Cause you’re the thing that’s in my head. That thing that floats around. The thing that doesn’t care what it does, but knows that its hell bound.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I can’t speak your name anymore. I don’t hope that you’re ok. I don’t care what you do or care if you don’t stay.

Chorus

Cause you’re the thing that’s in your head. That thing that floats around. The thing that doesn’t care what it does, but knows that its hell bound.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I don’t promise you a thing. I don’t care if you walk out. I don’t care if you live or die and don’t care what your pains about.  

Chorus

Cause you’re the thing that’s in your head. That thing that floats around. The thing that doesn’t care what it does, but knows that its hell bound.

Bad Man Baby

                                                                                                                                             

You think you’re special, but you aint. You’re just Mr. Whoever. Just another pain. You see yourself a star. You see yourself on stage. Playing your music and venting the rage.

Chorus

Cause you’re a bad man baby. You make me wanna die. You’re a bad man baby. All I do is cry. You’re a bad man baby. Who tells the sweetest lies. You’re a bad man baby. So I hope and pray you fry.

````````````````````````

That twinkle in your eye, tells me you’re untrue. So don’t blame me for wanting to run away from you. Your lips are sweet and warm and taste like honey wine. But the truth about you baby, would make a bad man go blind.

Chorus

Cause you’re a bad man baby. You make me wanna die. You’re a bad man baby. All I do is cry. You’re a bad man baby. Who tells the sweetest lies. You’re a bad man baby. So I hope and pray you fry.

````````````````````````

So when you’re old and gray, you’ll have nothing left to give. No ladies fawning over you. No more reason to live. You’re just another man in a land he doesn’t own. Working for what he doesn’t need in a world of brick and stone.

Chorus

Cause you’re a bad man baby. You make me wanna die. You’re a bad man baby. All I do is cry. You’re a bad man baby. Who tells the sweetest lies. You’re a bad man baby. So I hope and pray you fry.

Ride That Train

 

Im on the outside lookin’ In and don’t like what I see. Cause there’s only desperation starin’ back at me. So take that heart you don’t have and bleed it dry once more, cause you aint got no one and nothin’ to look for.

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause luck is a free ride and living is a waste of time. So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause life aint always rosey, and not always black or white.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Im stuck in the middle of something I don’t like. The hate is raining down so hard that I cant win this fight. But it don’t matter now whether its wrong or right. Cause I cant feel the love or see the prize in site.‚Äč

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause luck is a free ride and living is a waste of time. So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause life aint always rosey, and not always black or white.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Im a long way from home. A place I'll never go. Cause there aint nothin for me and nothin for me to show. But I keep on searchin' for that life force. Hopin' I can stay on top and have something to look for. 

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause luck is a free ride and living is a waste of time. So ride that train to nowhere. A place so sweet and dark. Cause life aint always rosey, and not always black or white.

Tear My Heart Out Baby

 

You say things just to hurt me. That’s what you do for fun. But you’re the only one laughing. Your heart is a loaded gun.

Chorus

So tear my heart out baby. Make me wanna die. Tear my heart out baby. That’s how you get your high.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Your love was a cancer, that ate me bit by bit. Tearing me down slowly. Making me feel like spit.

Chorus

So tear my heart out baby. Make me wanna die. Tear my heart out baby. That’s how you get your high.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I finally got my way, when I rid myself of you. Nothing will stop me now. There’s no more hurt that you can do.

Ride That Train

Your days and nights are backward and you only hear what you want. You think you’re immortal and your soul will never rot, but a man is only flesh and bone and can’t enjoy what he aint got.

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. It’s the place that you should be. Ride that train to nowhere, where the hanging tree is free. You see yourself as famous you see yourself as rich, but in the end you’re still alone and still that fucking bitch. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

You count your lucky stars. All the ones that you don’t have. Hoping to win over others, with lies and backstabs. So go about your way. You’re as sad as you can be. Living a life built on hate, rage and greed.

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. It’s the place that you should be. Ride that train to nowhere, where the hanging tree is free. You see yourself as famous you see yourself as rich, but in the end you’re still alone and still that fucking bitch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

So here you are. In the world that you don’t need. Blaming everyone else for all the bad that you breed. Sitting all alone, cause you’re the king of conceit. Sitting all alone, cause you’re the person no one sees.

Chorus

So ride that train to nowhere. It’s the place that you should be. Ride that train to nowhere, where the hanging tree is free. You see yourself as famous you see yourself as rich, but in the end you’re still alone and still that fucking bitch.

Your Face

What I wanna do is nothing new. It’s not from Hell or outer space. It’s something we got it when Adam was stung. Way back when the world was still young.

Chorus

So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause I got something tasty to taste. So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause all I wanna do is sit on your face.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Im not here to drive you insane.  And I’m not here to beg or complain. I just want it to be okay for me to wanna sit on your face.

Chorus

So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause I got something tasty to taste. So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause all I wanna do is sit on your face.

I don’t wanna take it slow. I want it rough so let’s go, go, go. It’s alright to be on top.   Cause any ole way will hit the spot.

Chorus

So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause I got something tasty to taste. So don’t stop till I get enough. Cause all I wanna do is sit on your face.
