Lyrics: 

Think about the good things
Think about the bad things
Think about a reason to see you tonight
Something getting hard when you rock it up
Something getting hot when you rock it up
Pretty little girl let your sweet thing sway
Never gonna treat you wrong
Tie you down pretend you're Madonna
Never gonna treat you wrong

Oh you pretty thing
Shake your pretty thing
Gimme that pretty thing

Think about the love thing
Think about the sex thing
Think about you holding me, taking me down
Something getting hard when you rock it up
Something getting hot when you rock it up
Pretty little girl let your sweet thing sway
Never gonna do you wrong
Strip you down and take you to pieces
Always gonna love this song

Oh you pretty thing
Feel that pretty thing
Suck that pretty thing

Lyrics: 

There's a cry that is heard in the city
From Vivian at Pentecost Lane
A shriekin' and dancing till 4am
Another night of muscles and pain
I love you despite your convictions
That god never laughs at my jokes

I'm a young man at odds with the bible
But I don't pretend faith never works
When we're down on our knees
Preteen' at the bus stop

Now Jesus he came in a vision
And offered you redemption from sin
I'm not sayin' that I don't believe you
But are you sure that it really was him?
I've been told that it could've been blue cheese
Or the meal that we ate down the road
Hallelujah

Lyrics: 

as soon as you're born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all
till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
a working class hero is something to be
a working class hero is something to be

they hurt you at home and they hit you at school
they hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
till you're so fuckin' crazy you can't follow their rules
a working class hero is something to be
a working class hero is something to be

when they've tortured and scared you for 20 odd years
then they expect you to pick a career
when you can't really function you're so full of fear
a working class hero is something to be
a working class hero is something to be
keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
and you think you're so clever and classless and free
but you're still fuckin' peasants as far as i can see
a working class hero is something to be
a working class hero is something to be

there's room at the top they are telling you still
but first you must learn how to smile as you kill
if you want to be like the folks on the hill

a working class hero is something to be
if you want to be a hero well just follow me
if you want to be a hero well just follow me

Lyrics: 

i'm lazy
you're crazy, girl
stay by my side

i'm scared you'll
meet someone
in whom you'll confide

life's still a dream
your love's amazing
since i found you
my life's amazing

i pledge you
you'll never be blue
there's too much at stake to be down

my nightmare
rooted here watching you go
divine in both our lives

life's still a dream
your love's amazing
since i found you
my life's a roll
go go go
and it's amazing

Under the God

Lyrics: 

skin dance back-a-the condo
skin heads getting to school
beating on blacks with a baseball bat
racism back in rule

white trash picking up nazi flags
while you was gone, there was war
this is the west, get used to it
they put a swastika over the door

Chorus:
under the god
under the god
one step over the red line
under the god
under the god
ten steps into the crazy

washington heads in the toilet bowl
don't see supremicist hate
right wing dicks in their boiler suits
picking out who to annihilate

toxic jungle of uzi trails
tribesmen just wouldn't live here
facist flare is fashion cool
well, you're dead - you just ain't buried (yet)

Chorus

as the walls came tumbling down
so, the secrets that we shared
i believed you by the palace gates,
now the savage days are here

under the gods
crazy eyed man with a shot gun
hot headed creep with a knife
love and peace and harmony
love you could cut with a life
