DRAGONTOWN



TRIGGERMAN

I ain't got a name, I don't gotta face, no fingerprints or DNA
I ain't got no eyes, I don't got a tongue, but I know what's going on… I'm deaf and dumb
I'm pure non-entity, don't even look for me. I watch you when you sleep…

(chorus)
I am the triggerman, I am the underhand
I'll keep you on your knees, I am the brain police
I am the triggerman, I am the underhand
I'm full of dirty tricks, I'm twice as smart and certainly twice as sick

I am always out of sight… a shadow in the mist, I don't need no alibi, 'cos I don't exist
I'm pure non-entity, don't even look for me. I watch you when you sleep…

(repeat chorus)

He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick
He's sick, he's sick, he's really, really sick




DEEPER

We must complete the trip. Try not to lose your grip
No sight of solid ground and never look straight down
Deeper, deeper, deeper, deeper
Your claustrophobic brain sucking you down the drain
The walls are closing in, the air is getting thin

(chorus)
The elevator broke, it went right through the floor
It left a burning hole, down and down and down we go
We're in a deadly spin, hating this spin we're in
We're helpless, panic grows, down and down and down we go

Daylight is at an end. You'll never see again
You'll soon embrace the sight of this cold eternal light

(repeat chorus 3x)




DRAGONTOWN

Well here you are… lying bleeding on a grimy street
See the broken glass sparkling darkly as it cuts your feet
Smell the rotting stench, the rancid odour of old Cantonese
Feel the toxic flames all around you, you can hardly breathe… Come with me…

Come on, I got something to show you
Come on, you thought that it was over
Come on, you're really gonna love this
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

(chorus)
We can dig you a hole deep in the ground, bury your soul down in Dragontown
We'll be lower than low, spiralling down, far as you want to go down in Dragontown

Open any door, Remember everyone you met….before?
Oh, there's a wicked young man cooking slowly in the frying pan
And our family of bones are back together sleeping all alone
Then there's Alice, dear, and all the little things that got him here… Now you're here!!

Come on, I've got something to show you
Come on, you thought that it was over
Come on you're really going to love this
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on

(repeat chorus 3x)




SEX, DEATH AND MONEY

Sex and death… sex and death… sex and death
When I go to the show all I see on the screen is a stream of pure vulgarity
I wrote down a note, I complained for a day to the House of Representatives
They laughed in my face, they said "Son, you're a one in a million minority
The name of the game is to titillate the brain, stimulate the immorality."
I was so offended as I sat for 3 hours, It was mental cruelty, I was so shocked
Just a little more flesh, just a little more blood
A little closer to the edge, a little deeper in the mud, I'll never be the same

Sex, death and money, sonny, makes the wicked world go 'round
Sex, death and money, it's the gospel here in Dragontown
Sex, death and money, honey, grease the wheels and make them fly
Sex, death and money, sonny, that is why we all are gonna fry

Stick my nose in the door ended up on the floor in the middle of a nudie show
She danced on my lap, a couple of hundred dollars later I was up on a morals rap
I was so offended as I sat for 3 hours, it was mental cruelty, I was so shocked
Just a little more flesh, just a little more blood
A little closer to the edge, a little deeper in the mud, I'll never be the same

Sex, death and money, honey, grease the wheels and make them fly
Sex, death and money, sonny, that is why we are all gonna,
That is why we are all gonna fry, that is why we are all gonna fry
Sex and death… sex and death… sex and death
Sex, death and money, it's the gospel here in Dragontown
Sex, death and money, honey, that is why we all are gonna,
That is why we are all gonna fry
Sex and death… sex and death… sex and death… sex




FANTASY MAN

I don't drink tea or white Chablis. I sit around and watch TV
Don't send flowers or take showers, but I'll be there to pull your weeds, oh yeah
I don't read books, I don't French cook or stroll around in galleries
I hate opera, I hate Oprah, don't fill my head with poetry

(chorus)
You just want to squeeze my masculinity… Why can't you leave it alone?
Hey, hey, I ain't gonna change
Hey, hey, don't you love me this way?
Hey, hey, I am what I am, so please understand, I'm not your fantasy man

I don't do dishes and I'm suspicious of any grown-up man that does
I'm homophobic, don't do aerobics, just lay around and catch a buzz

(repeat chorus)

Hey, hey, I ain't gonna change
Hey, hey, don't you love me this way?
Hey, hey, I am what I am, so please understand, I'm not your fantasy man

(repeat chorus)

Hey, hey, I ain't gonna change
Hey, hey, don't you love me this way?
Hey, hey, I am what I am, so please understand, I'm not your fantasy man




SOMEWHERE IN THE JUNGLE

There it stands way up high, a million bodies piled to the sky
Arms and legs, feet and hands, impossible to understand
Countless heads, ears and eyes, never hear, never cry
Tribal chants, tribal war, tribal death, tribal gore

And the scavengers are feeding cuz the killing fields are bleeding
Not a single soul is breathing cuz the Serengeti's bleedin'
And the scavengers are feeding cuz the killing fields are bleeding
Not a single soul is breathing cuz the Serengeti's bleedin'
Listen somewhere in the jungle you can hear the devil laughing… somewhere…

African genocide, brother kill brother side by side
Wild animals show their teeth and run away in disbelief

And the scavengers are feeding cuz the killing fields are bleeding
Not a single soul is breathing cuz the Serengeti's bleedin'
And the scavengers are feeding cuz the killing fields are bleeding
Not a single soul is breathing cuz the Serengeti's bleedin'
Listen somewhere in the jungle you can hear the devil laughing… somewhere

(Somewhere the rivers will flow with blood,
The mothers will cry their tears, they watch their sons die
Listen somewhere in the jungle you can hear the devil laughing… somewhere)




DISGRACELAND

I wanna tell you a story, happened long ago
'Bout a redneck boy down from Tupelo
I got slick black hair, I play rock guitar
I like to shake my hips, man, well then I went too far


He ate his weight in country ham, killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland

I had a lot of girls, yeah, I had a lot of guns
When they found me dead, the whole world was stunned
Went to the pearly gates, said I'm here to sing
And Peter said "Well son, you see, we already got ourselves a king"


He lived on southern deep-fried Spam, killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland
He finished his short life sweaty and bloated and stoned
He ruled his domain and died on the throne, no yes-men, no Colonel… He went all alone

Hey man that looks like me down there on the floor…
I heard the devil cry really loud and clear
"You were a big man there, you're just a sideman here
Now I know your face, and I've heard your name
Looks like heaven's loss, gonna be my gain… I got big plans for you, boy…"


He ate his weight in country ham, killed on pills and woke in Disgraceland

Well I woke up right up here… in Disgraceland… yeah, Disgraceland
Thank you… thank you very much…





SISTER SARA

Now I don't know but I've been told there's a nun having fun and she lost her soul
She's got cash, she got laid. Now she's dealin' with me and she's gonna get paid
She got caught with the bishop, got caught with the abbot, even Cardinal Sin tried to feed her habit
Now we get whores and pimps and skanks, but when your judgement came down even he gave
thanks
"Whatever happened to me? Can't remember my name…
Flying so high on angelic wings, flew too close to the flame"

(chorus)
Sister Sara, It's your penalty for eternity.
Did you think that you were saved?
You forget your old identity, who you used to be.
Sister Sara, so depraved

Oh, come ye faithless, get in line, you're gonna drown in the water, turn to wine
And you're all going to wallow when you sin and shame, you had every opportunity to call his name
Don't look surprised, don't be in shock, You'll be a lovely little demon in my private stock
I'm just doing my job to pull you down, cuz it's a one way ticket down to Dragontown

You got caught in my web, You made your own bed here and now you must keep me well fed
You're mine, too bad, you're here for me… you're just here for me

(repeat chorus)

Moment to moment, hour to hour, forever and ever
Time after time after time after time after time…

(repeat chorus)




EVERY WOMAN HAS A NAME

You were so beautiful, like a child so young and full of life… seems a hundred years ago…
You saw everything, so much more tragedy than good, you even watched the world grow cold
And even when your world was shakin', even when your breath was taken
Even when your blue eyes turned to gray

Small town debutantes and queens… every woman has a name
Cocktail waitresses with dreams… every woman has a name
And every girl whose love survives a broken heart to stay alive
You signed your picture in the frame… every woman has a name

You had your love affair, some were perfect but most of them were pain… seems a hundred years ago…
It took you to the highest hill, left you standing frozen in the rain, but still you feel the afterglow
Now even when your world was shakin', even when your breath was taken
Even when your blue eyes turned to gray

Housewives cryin' on the phone… every woman has a name
Sacred sisters all alone… every woman has a name
And even on the coldest day, when the kids are gone, moved away
It's lonely now, there's no one there to hold your hand and play
See it written on the grave… every woman has a name




I JUST WANNA BE GOD

I'm in control, I got a bulletproof soul and I'm full of self-esteem
I invented myself with no-one's help, I'm a prototype supreme
I sit upon my private throne and run my lifestyle all alone
Me, myself and I agree, we don't need nobody else
I never learned to bow, bend or crawl to any known authority
I really want to build my statue tall, that's all

(chorus)
I'm just trying to be God, I only wanna be God, I just wanna be God
Why can't I be God?

I got no time to take advice. I want to gamble my eternity with loaded dice
I don't need a preacher in my face when I'm the omnipresent ruler of the human race
Ain't gonna spend my life being no-one's fool. I was born to rock and I was born to rule
But if I'm wrong on judgement day, I'm royally screwed with hell to pay
I never learned to bow, bend or crawl to any known authority
I really want to build my statue tall, that's all

(repeat chorus 3x)




IT'S MUCH TOO LATE

I never kicked a dog, a child or my wife. I never looked at pornography
I swear it on my holy saint mother's life, but somehow she's down here with me
The road to hell is littered with nice guys with good intentions
But once you're there, you're there, it's much too late
I can cry and scream it's just not fair to leave me here like you don't care
There must be some mistake up there in heaven

(chorus)
Now it's much too late, my time has passed away, all my plans and dreams have all ended
Now it's much too late to try and plead my case
And I don't know the God I've offended… It's too late

I never stole a thing, a toy or a kiss. My conscience is a clean as can be.
And when I was a teen all the sex that I missed was an abstinence blessing to me
The road to hell is littered with nice guys with good intentions
But once you're there, you're there, it's much too late
I can cry and scream it's just not fair to leave me here like you don't care
There must be some mistake up there in heaven

(repeat chorus 3x)

It's much too late




THE SENTINEL

I'm not a Buddha boy, I'm not a Muslim man, not a Christian or a Jew
I'm not a Mormon freak, I'm not a Catholic geek, and I'm nothing at all like you
My mind, my heart, my soul is calm while I sit here soldering my C2 bomb
Got some wires crossed in my twisted head. Connect the green wire here… or was it red?

It's my fate. I operate on hate
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
I go by many other names but now
I am The Sentinel, I want the world to know
I'm sending all the infidels to hell. I'm tired and I'm wired here to blow

There's somethin' disturbin' goin' on in my turban, I'm home, home on deranged
I'm doin' my meditation so deep within while the medication is kickin' in

It's my fate. I operate on hate
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
I go by many other names but now
I am The Sentinel, I want the world to know
I'm sending you all to hell. I'm tired and I'm wired here to blow
I am The Sentinel, I want the world to know
I'm sending you all to hell. I'm tired and I'm wired here to blow
