Lyrics: 

Just the twinkling lights of heaven
Two reflections on the sparkling water
Hand in hand in love with love uh-huh
I love the cheap things that you say
You belong in rock n' roll
You belong in rock n' roll
You belong in rock n' roll
Well so do I
I love how she moves me
It makes me feel alright
I'm a hurt, I'm a hurt, I'm a hurting
I'm a man with a beat in my pocket
I'm going down to the rhythm of love
I love the bad luck that you bring
You belong in rock n' roll
You belong in rock n' roll
You belong in rock n' roll
Well so do I
Alone on a mean street
It makes me feel on fire
I love the cheap street in your walk
You belong in rock n' roll
You belong in rock n' roll
Well so do I
I love how she moves me
It makes me feel alright

Lyrics: 

The last days were the meanest
Leanest days of our lives
You threw me the pieces
I started the fire
One thing led to a dead end
One shot put her away hey-hey
Look out on a green world
Windows and wives
No bedroom to run to
No miracle jive - no conversation
Then nothing meant nothing
Ten dollars tore us apart
One thing led to a dead end
One shot put her away
Her love is the dearest
No money can buy
She burnt like a spitfire
One shot put her away

Lyrics: 

Now that he has no sense of destination
Now he's running for the love of speed
When the child goes bad it's no cause for celebration
Like Jimmy Dean he don't talk back to me
Failures as fathers, Mothers to chaos
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Hallo humans can you feel me thinking
I assume you're seeing everything I'm thinking
Hallo humans nothing starts tomorrow
I'm the baby now
Baby Universe, Baby Universe, Baby Universal
A speck of dust has settled in my eye
It doesn't matter I've seen everything anyway
Failures as fathers, Mothers to chaos
No baby, no baby, no baby no
Hallo humans can you feel me thinking
I assume you're seeing everything I'm thinking
Hallo humans nothing starts tomorrow
I'm the baby now
Baby Universe, Baby Universe, Baby Universal

Tin Machine II

Tin Machine II was the second of Bowie’s albums to suffer from genital removal at the hands of the censors.
For the American release of the album, the cover was altered to remove the genitalia of the four Kouroi statues. Warning to the faint-hearted, both versions are illustrated here.
