Lightning To The Nations

Yes i’m coming
Angel from the sky, put his hand in mine
I can spread you gifts, for golden present time
i’m going to set you down
I’m going to make it right
I’m going to bring it home
I’ll bring you lightning to the nations
To the nations
To the nations
To the nations
From the shores of home, we send a gift of love
To sweet and hopeful hearts, a gift from high above
I’m going to set you down
I’m going to make it right
I’m going to bring it home
I’ll bring you lightning to the nations
To the nations
To the nations
To the nations
Here it comes now
London

Lightning to the Nations

The Prince

Now I see his face, I’ve seen him smile
Such in a lonely place, no golden mile
His eyes tell morbid tales, of his black heart
His deeds through ages past, tell of his part
See his face, see his smile, time to die
Oh Oh Oh
Oh angel from below, change my dreams
I want for glory’s hour, for wealth’s esteem
I wish to sell my soul, to be reborn
I wish for earthly riches, don’t want no crown of thorns
See his face, see his smile, time to die
Oh Oh Oh
I was born a fool, don’t want to stay that way
Devil take my soul, with diamonds you repay
I don’t care for heaven, don’t you look for me to cry
And I will burn in Hell, from the day I die
See his face, see his smile, time to die
Oh Oh Oh

Sucking My Love

Over and under, sweet girl down to the sea
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sweet and timely caress, sweet babe fulfillin’ me
I can feel her heart, it is beating down inside
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tasty, tasty, tasty, tasty
Into her valley, all her charms taste of love
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Fragrance of my dreams, yeah go down, take all my love
Oh yeah, yeah
Taste my bitter wine, cos there’s something boiling up inside
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tasty, tasty, tasty, tasty
Faster……love….
Make me go…..

Faster, faster
Love, sucking my love
Oh Lord, sucking my love
Sucking my love, Sucking my love, Sucking my love, Sucking my love

Am I Evil?

My mother was a witch, she was burned alive
Thankless little bitch, for the tears I cried
Take her down now, don’t wanna see her face
Blistered and burnt, can’t hide my disgrace
27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man
As I watched my Mother die, I lost my head
Revenge now I sought, to break with my bread
Takin’ no chances, you come with me
I’ll split you to the bone help set you free.
27 every one was nice, gotta see them,
Make them pay the price
See their bodies out on the ice, take my time
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man, yes I am
On with the action now, I’ll strip your pride
I’ll spread your blood around, I’ll see you ride
Your face is scarred with steel, wounds deep and neat
Like a double dozen before you, smell so sweet.
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man
My soul has long gone before, awaiting my hell
Set to avenge my mother, sweeten myself
My face is long forgotten, my face not my own
Sweet and timely whore, take me home.
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man
On with the action now, I’ll strip your pride
I’ll spread your blood around, I’ll see you ride
Your face is scarred with steel, your spirits dance
Like a double dozen before you, no romance.
Am I evil, yes I am
Am I evil, I am man

Sweet And Innocent

You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You look so fine girl
I suppose you always do
So fine and so sweet
It’s good to look at you
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I’ll pass around, yeah
You ain’t in fashion
Baby you’re as one
It’s not long before – it’s much more than fun
Yes it’s taking chances, but they don’t want to know
And since your fine baby left you
Don’t know which way to go
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I’ll pass around, yeah
You live it good girl
And baby you live it high
You reach it easily, makes me wanna cry
You take it good girl
I don’t know who will bring you down
Who will bring you down
Sweet and innocent
And settled down
Sweet and innocent
I’ll pass around, yeah

It’s Electric

I’m gonna be a rock ‘n’ roll star
Gotta groove from night to day
Gotta blow my honey jar, yeah
Gotta blow my blues away
I’m gonna make a stand
I’m gonna make a million
I’m gonna make it with you
I’m gonna be one my friend
I’m gonna push it through
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
I stop on red but I leave on amber
Danger paves my way
I’m gonna make it my friend
Gonna make it today
Gonna get the dust from my heels,
Down the highway I go
Gonna get the stars from my brow
Make it in a rock ‘n’ roll show
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
I stop on red but I leave on amber
Danger paves my way
I’m gonna make it my friend
Gonna make it today
Gonna get the dust from my heels,
Down the highway I go
Gonna get the stars from my brow
Make it in a rock ‘n’ roll show
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,
It’s electric,

Helpless

I gotta see you moving fast, see you come my way
See the dreams, I hope they last, never fade away
Gotta see the lights above, make it loud tonight
Gotta set it all on fire, set it all alight
See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roll
I am gonna set you alight
Gotta make it man, I ain’t got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight
Helpless, Helpless, Helpless, Helpless
Helpless, Helpless, Helpless, Helpless
I don’t know what I’m gonna do, maybe not tonight
Gotta set you all on fire, gotta treat you right
I can see the flashing lights, lazer for your love
Gotta hear the thunder roar, coming from above
See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man, I ain’t got no choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight
Helpless, Helpless, Helpless, Helpless
Helpless, Helpless, Helpless, Helpless
I can see the stars, I can see what’s going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
Only time will tell if I make it myself someday
The stage is mine, music is my destiny
Cannot squeeze the life from me
I can see the lights, I can see what’s going on
Every night alone, I sing my songs just for fun
This business ain’t for laughs, business men don’t like it so
Helpless maybe babe, but you can still enjoy the show
Cannot squeeze the life from me
Gotta be good, see you tonight
I know that you’re fine
Gotta be safe, gotta be true
You know that you’re mine
Help me now, I’m coming home, ohh
Gotta be fine, gotta be right
You set me alight
Help me now, I’m coming home
I can see the band from miles away
Looks so right, feels so tight, oohh
Feels so fine, feels so good. oohh
Makes a man a whole man
Lord it’s gonna make my day
Helpless, helpless, oohh
Helpless, helpless, oohh
