Track Name: Bruise Knife
too close to Barstow
too far from home
you left me heartless
left me alone

you rock and rollers
you’re all the same
you get your fuck on
you kill again

I shred your picture
you shred my life
I stab your door down baby with double-edge bruise knife

bruise knife

your mouth is bleeding
your bones are broke
your soul running out your neck and I hope you choke
you took my black heart
and made it white
said it would last forever then you killed it at the end of the night

bruise knife

so there you are now – so dressed up so fucking cool
you got your sycophant boys and all they got is love for you
walk walk away girl, you I’ll not follow
you can kiss my bruise knife baby but you better not swallow
Track Name: Bloody Murder
poor Anastasia she went mad
they found her naked by the flower stand
she crossed her heart and she hoped to die
she could still hear her family cry
bloody murder

and all according to the men with the facts
well little Lizzie had her way with an ax
she blew a kiss and she batted a lash
and you know she got away clean with
bloody murder

hot retaliation - tarnished reputation
rock and roll patricide all across the nation
byzantine bloody sheen they say they'll never hurt her
but the kids are all in love with
bloody murder

i'm in love with a shiny new blade
i'm in love with the mess that i made
i'm in mad mad love with
bloody murder
Track Name: Belladonna Hemlock
in the world there is no madness
in the world there is no shame
in this beautiful world there are no hungry mouths to feed
in this fucked up magnificent world, there's only fame

only fame to take away all your fears
come on sign me an autograph with your tears
slice up your face tickle your makeup on
make a move for the spotlight, run run sister run
run run sister run

in the world you gotta be spectacular
in the world you gotta be quick
in this heartbroke wicked world you gotta be a rockstar
in this belladonna hemlock world you gotta get sick

when you're sick you can save so many precious souls
come on and dip my head in holy rock and roll
say a prayer for the people with a loaded gun
climb aboard for eternity run run sister run
run run sister run

i'm not averse to making belligerent statements in the newspaper headlines
i've got an entourage on loan
i'm not afraid to slit the throat of my most elegant superior
and when the people know me by my face and name I'm home

only fame can take away all your fears
come on sign me an autograph with your tears
slice up your face tickle your makeup on
make a move for the spotlight, run run sister run
run run sister run
Track Name: Tramps In Stereo
she’s got that ear-to-the-ground, visionary style, locomotive rock star pain
she’s got a lovely left brain
(you can see that when a girl like her steps in the room)
she’s got a pearl shine slipper on her right foot kickin like a tear drop
singin in the four star rain
nobody feels that flame
except the tips of her fingernails dipped in snow
see ya soon

stereo vamp, such a tramp, gonna make your stand on the runway
with the jet trails in your hair
two double suitcase clenchin in your white hands powdered
with the last night’s love affair

three Colombian gents stepped up over the fence
and had a chit-chat with the checkout girl
she’s stealin cash from the counter, slips it down her leather panties
for the man with his lips upcurled
he’s made a call to the woman on the runway with her fur coat
flappin up and pacin back and forth
she never saw the limo comin, put some glitter up her nose
pointed south and caught a Greyhound north

nothing in the rules that say you did it all wrong
they’re still screamin and shoutin and you’re still singing along
the flickering pictures on the television write you a song
and how does it go? it goes:

Tramps in Stereo
Track Name: Pharaoh's Got The Bomb
in the midnight streets of Cairo
there’s a man with a plan so fair
rockabilly with a hint of pyro
sips his tea and he checks his hair

at the sound of the minarets screaming
comes the Beast on a chariot ride
Allah shines on his burning black dagger
come aboard say his mummified eyes

bring me the head of John the Baptist
I will have this world for a song
I’ve got the money and you’ve got plutonium
bring on the fire cause Pharaoh’s got the bomb

we’ll take a cue from Mohammed’s hymn book
we’ll make a war on the western world
the infidels won’t see it coming
no face to battle if no flag unfurled

Dear Mother hear me as I strap on my new bomb
this news is painful but you’ve got to carry on
I’ve loved no women in my life though I am grown
I must confess I wear a dress when I’m alone

in the morning streets of London
there’s a man on a mission on a train
he shakes the hand of the devil and checks his hair
then pirouettes in the nuclear rain
Track Name: Little Death
Music and Lyrics A. Thompson
Track Name: Parasol
this woman's favorite lullaby
is the story of a heart that wouldn't die
got a portrait of her parasol
and I don't like her

she's a scene in a sullen cabaret
making certain that the world spins her way
has a smile that she saves for rainy days
and I never liked her

I loved her
I lost her
and now my heart is gone
I loved her
I lost her
and now everything I'll ever do
I'll never do with you

There's a shadow on the heart she calls war
a love she's found the antidote for
a joke without a laugh sweet Eleanor
but she's still laughing

the rainy day she hides inside of
is everything she has in spite of
the shadow that she kills the light of
and I never knew her

I loved her
I lost her
and now my heart is gone
I loved her
I lost her
and now everything I'll ever do
I'll never do with you
