WILD CHILD
(Lawless, Holmes)
I ride, I ride the winds that bring the rain
A creature of love and I can't be tamed
I want you, cause I'm gonna take your love from him
And I'll touch your face and hot burning skin

No, he'll never ever touch you like I do
So look in my eyes and burn alive the truth

I'm a wild child, come and love me
I want you
My heart's in exile I need you to touch me
Cause I want what you do
I want you

Tell me, tell me the lies you're telling himwhen you
Run away cause I wanna know
Cause I, I'm sure it's killing him to find
That you run to me when he lets you go

Cause I'm burning, burning, burning up with fire
So come turn me on and turn the flames up higher

I'm a wild child, come and love me
I want you
My heart's in exile I need you to touch me
Cause I want what you do
I want you

A naked heat machine, I want your love
When the moons arise we'll feel just what it does

I'm a wild child, come and love me
I want you
My heart's in exile I need you to touch me
Cause I want what you do
I want you



BALL CRUSHER
(Lawless, Holmes)
Such a wicked vicious woman, black magic voodoo queen
Lesbo nymphomaniac, ooh, she's got a girlfriend that's seventeen

Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye
Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye

Stole the rent and drank all my JD, she went and hijacked my brand new car
I say AC, she says DC, the damned bitch is just too bizarre

Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye
Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye

I call her liar
Her eyes burn the flame
Liar, the princess of pain

Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye Ballcrusher

Such a wicked vicious woman, the hellraiser finally pushed her luck
Before I finally leave her in her dust, I'm gonna her till she can't stand up

Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye
Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye

I call her liar
Her eyes burn the flame
Liar, the daughter of DeSade

Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye
Bye bye bye Ballcrusher
Bye bye bye



FISTFUL OF DIAMONDS
(Lawless)
Money makes me crazy, money makes me insane
Diamonds, silver, gold, and precious steel
I want it all, it's mine to claim
I hold my hands out, I take it all

I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
I live for the glory and fame
I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
The millions are calling my name

Fortune come here to me, it's power that rules the game
Seduction of silver and LAWLESS greed
I love it all, I damn the shame
The root of all evil can hear me call

I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
I live for the glory and fame
I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
The millions are calling my name

Solitaire, come cast a spell of magic
The smell of green I stack my dollars high
Intoxicating, my mind's wreaking havoc
A famous face, I get what you can't buy

I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
I live for the glory and fame
I want a fistful, fistful of diamonds
The millions are calling my name



JACK ACTION
(Riley, Lawless)
I've been uptown, all around
I've looked here there everywhere
He killed my babe, today, with a gun
I'll get him now, he can't run

Well I'm looking for, looking for

Looking for Jack Action
To get my satisfaction
Looking for Jack Action
I'm looking for, looking...

Now I can't believe she's gone away
He better run, ya know I don't play
Took my babe, my life, he's on the run
Look out Jack now, here's my gun, yeah

Well I'm looking for, looking for

Looking for Jack Action
To get my satisfaction
Looking for Jack Action
I'm looking for, looking...

Oh no, a man with a war to wage
I'm a suicide brigade
He's mine, he's all mine
My bullets are bearing his name
And his life is mine to claim
It's time, now it's time

Jack Action, where are you
It's been too long since I've known
Won't give up on you till I'm done
You'll be dead soon, you can't run, no

Cause I'm looking for, looking for

Looking for Jack Action
To get my satisfaction
Looking for Jack Action
I'm looking for, looking...



WIDOWMAKER
(Lawless)
A thousand years I've roamed the plains
And waved the hand of doom
I've seen the tears that fall
Like rain from the waste and ruin
A shadow's cast from me to you
A time to claim
All that's mine, my wrath is blind
The balance is where you hang

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker

The cries of sadness never heard
Fall deaf upon my ears
The stench of madness, raging wars
I've seen a million years
The smell of sorrow fills the fields
And lingers in the sky
The littered ground will swallow down
The souls that fill my eyes

I'm the WidowMaker
I'm the Lord of the Wings
I'm the WidowMaker



BLIND IN TEXAS
(Lawless)
An El Paso hellhole, I couldn't get much higher
White lightning moonshine, tastes like fire
I drank for free till I couldn't see
I fell on the floor, what I said is

I'm blind in Texas, the lone star is hot tonight
I'm blind in Texas, the cowboys have taken my eyes

I drank Dallas whiskey and lost my mind
Had high-balls in Houston, three for a dime
Everything starts to spin, loaded on gin
I fell out the door, what I said is

I'm blind in Texas, the lone star is hot tonight
I'm blind in Texas, the cowboys have taken my eyes

San Antonio and the West Texas town El Paso
Corups Christi and Waco, the Yellow Rose is wild

Hey dude, let's party

Raisin hell in Austin just after sundown
When the hoosegow police decided to come round- they said
"Boy what's the matter with you, what you trying to do?"
I looked at the man and I said

(spoken part)
'i think i'll have another one'
-we aint got no more-
'what do ya mean you ain't got no more liqour'
-we aint got no more, go home-
'what do ya mean go home, what am i supposed to
do... get on a horse and ride back to LA?'
-????-
'the hell you say... suffer!"

I'm blind in Texas, the lone star is hot tonight
I'm blind in Texas, I'm blind



CRIES IN THE NIGHT
(Lawless)
Oooh, I'm sitting down thinking about losing my mind
Cause I keep telling myself I'm only one of a kind
My life is broke and my dreams were shattered
For so very long nothing else mattered

I'm hearing Cries in the Night, I can't wait another day
No, no, no, tell me no lies, I'm standing cold in the light
I lose the dream and I go crazy, I'm hearing Cries in the Night

Yeah, they pull at my hair, and call out my name
They think I'm cool and got worries with fame
But I'm living to lose and dying to win
With those people around here my patience wears thin

I'm hearing Cries in the Night, I can't wait another day
No, no, no, tell me no lies, I'm standing cold in the light
I lose the dream and I go crazy, I'm hearing Cries in the Night

Yeah, I'm trying to get away, get away from it all
I stand and scream, I'm not gonna crawl
The dream never dies
That's wh I sing the song
Like my maddening world, it turns on and on

I'm hearing Cries in the Night, I can't wait another day
No, no, no, tell me no lies, I'm standing cold in the light
I lose the dream and I go crazy, I'm hearing Cries in the Night



THE LAST COMMAND
(Lawless)
You don't know what's in our hearts
This is our time, we've made our mark
And you can't understand, we'll fight till we fall
But what do you want to do? The time is right for you
To stand on your feet and answer the call

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command

A thousand times I had this dream, the flag was high, I heard a scream
That cut through the still of the night just like a knife
But that was yesterday, the darkness has gone away
I stand on the edge, and I pledge my life

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command

The destiny that I control will sever
And break the bonds and set me free forever!

Stand up, for the first time, and shout it, woah-oh
The last command is heard across the land
Stand up, for the first time, and cry out, woah-oh
Hear the call we are, the Last Command



RUNNING WILD IN THE STREETS
(Lawless, Proffer)
I'm looking to beat hell, looks like I've got to run to be the leader
As my forces yell, you can hear 'em, can't you hear them
All the way- we'll go the distance now
All the way- stand behind me now
All the way- no turning back
All the way cause we are together

I'm standin' proud, we're screaming loud, I'll lead the crowd
Running wild in the streets

A heavy dose of mean, yeah, I'm a lethal combination
Hear my forces scream, you can see them, can't yo see them
All the way- we'll go the distance now
All the way- stand behind me now
All the way- no turning back
All the way we are together

I'm standin' proud, we're screaming loud, I'll lead the crowd
Running wild in the streets



SEX DRIVE
(Lawless, Holmes)
I got a message for you, it's something you love to do
You're thinking bout it all the time
You're lying in bed and it runs through your head
Cause you can't get it off your mind
You been thinking pink and you're losing sleep
That rush is almost all you can stand
You feel it getting hard and your crotch starts to throb
It's body language you understand

I'm talking bout a sex drive
Ooh, it makes you feel so alive
Sex drive
Ooh, it's everything you fantasize
Sex drive

Like a dog in heat all dirty love is a treat
And ya know it's just too good to believe
That feeling second to none, you pull the trigger on your gun baby
Gotta get some relief
Your hands they tremble and sweat and you want all you can get
A need to get close inside
Yeah you can take a lickin' and keep on tickin' cause
You want to go on all night

I'm talking bout a sex drive
Ooh, it makes you feel so alive
Sex drive
Ooh, it's everything you fantasize
Sex drive

Come here and take what you need baby
