Empire - QueensrychePage 16 of 61    (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42)
Last night the word came down
Ten dead in chinatown
Innocent, they're only crime was
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time
Too bad, people say, what's wrong with the kids today?
Tell you uright now they've got nothing to lose
They're building an empire!

Johnny used to work after school
At the cinema show
Gotta hustle if he wants an education, he's got a long way to go
Now he's out on the street all day
Selling crack to the people who pay
Got an ak-47 for his best friend, business the american way

Chorus
Eastside meets westside downtown
No time the walls fall down
Can't you feel it coming? empire!
Can't you hear it calling?

Black man trapped again, holds his chains in his hand
Brother killing brother for the profit of another
Game point, nobody wins
Decline, right on time
What happened to the dream sublime?
Tear it all down, we'll put it up again
Another empire?

Chorus
Eastside meets westside downtown
No time the walls fall down
Can't you feel it coming? empire!
Can't you hear it calling?

[Spoken]
(In fiscal year 1986 to 87
Local, state, and federal governments
Spent a combined total of 16.6 billion dollars
On law enforcement
Federal law enforcement expenditures
Ranked last in absolute dollars
And accounted for only 6% of all federal spending
By way of comparison
The federal government spent 25 million more
On space exploration and 43 times more on national defense
And national relations then on law enforcement)

Chorus
Eastside meets westside downtown
No time the walls fall down
Can't you feel it coming? empire!
Can't you hear it calling?

Can't someone here stop it... ?

Senses Fail ~ Lost and Found
Posted: 7/30/2011 6:15:07 PM
:p being lost sucks - but being found is even better :)

This island has become
An ocean and my boat's too small
The waves are crashing in
And I can't save this sinking ship

I sent out signal flares
But no one out there seems to care
Now the voice inside my head
Is the only thing that I have left

This is the part where I'll admit
I'm getting what I deserve

And now I'm lost at sea
I'm drowning in what I won't be
I'm haunted by the sound (Sweet sound of my last breath)

Twenty days at sea
My skin is blistered from the heat
I can beg and I can plead
But what I get is never what I need

This is the part where I'll admit
I'm getting what I deserve

And now I'm lost at sea
I'm drowning in what I won't be
I'm haunted by the sound (Sweet sound of my last breath)

And now I'm lost at sea
I'm drowning in what I won't be
I'm haunted by the sound (Sweet sound of my last breath)

Whoa whoa
I'm going down I'm going down
Whoa whoa
I'm going down I'm going down

This is the part where I'll admit
I'm getting what I deserve

And now I'm lost at sea
I'm drowning in what I won't be
I'm haunted by the sound (Sweet sound of my last breath)

And now I'm lost at sea
I'm drowning in what I won't be
I'm haunted by the sound (Sweet sound of my last breath)

I'll Be Holding On - Gregg Allman
Posted: 7/30/2011 7:27:40 PM
I Have Lived My Life My Way
For Tonight And For Today
It's The Strongest Hearts They Say
That Always Survive
I'm Fallin Through The Years
As Each Dream It Disappears
When The Night Is Full Of Tears
I'll Be Holdin On

Now This Life Is Instant Black
But I Won't Be Lookin Back
The Rain Washed Out The Tracks
I'll Never Find Again
I'm Still Reachin For The Light
I'm Still Wearin Out The Night
And You Know I'll Be Alright
I'll Be Holdin On

When I Stand Alone
I Don't Stand On Memories
Of All The Ones You've Known
I'll Be Holdin On
I Know How It Is
I Know How It Will Be
(when) All The Rest Are Gone
I'll Be Holdin On

Well My Life Is Made Of Sand
It Flows Right Through My Hand
Each Day I Make A Stand
And I'll See It Through
I'll Be Reachin For The Light
I'll Be Wearin Out The Night
And You Know I'll Be Alright
I'll Be Holdin On

When I Stand Alone
I Don't Stand On Memories
Of All The Ones You've Known
I'll Be Holdin On
I Know How It Is
I Know How It Will Be
(when) All The
Rest Are Gone
I'll Be Holdin On

I Know How It Is
I Know How It Will Be
(when) All The Rest Are Gone
I'll Be Holdin On
I Know How It Is
I Know How It Will Be
(when) All The Rest Are Gone
I'll Be Holdin On

Senses Fail ~ Buried a Lie
Posted: 7/31/2011 4:35:26 AM
Rest in peace girl, your death is such a shame
The paper said a bullet got in your way
But I smell foul play, possible poisoning
I had to bring you in for questioning
I went to your grave, dug up your body
Brought it to my house, where you lay

So let's play doctor babe
We'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case
For me...

I headed downtown, to share what I had found
It's not a suicide, it's a crime
I have a witness, it's clearly evident
There had to be someone else present
At the time of death, poisons in stomach
How could she pull it, if she's dead?

So let's play doctor babe
We'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case
We need a scalpel now
Under white lights you lay
We've got to hurry up
Before the flesh decays
Away...away

I'll catch the murderer
And send him away
I'll get the evidence
From your last day

Your last day...[x3]

So let's play doctor babe
We'll operate today
Incisions must be made
You could help solve this case
We need a scalpel now
Under white lights you lay
We've got to hurry up
Before the flesh decays

Away...away

Switchfoot~Your Love is a Song
Posted: 7/31/2011 5:16:27 AM
Like I said...in my backpocket :)


Yeah

I hear you breathing in
Another day begins
The stars are falling out
My dreams are fading now, fading out

I've been keeping my eyes wide open
I've been keeping my eyes wide open

Your love is a symphony
All around me
Running through me
Your love is a melody
Underneath me
Running to me

Oh, your love is a song

The dawn is fire bright
Against the city lights
The clouds are glowing now
The moon is blacking out, is blacking out

So I've been keeping my mind wide open
I've been keeping my mind wide open, yeah

Your love is a symphony
All around me
Running through me
Your love is a melody
Underneath me
Running to me

Oh, your love is a song
Your love is a song
Oh, your love is a song
Your love is strong

With my eyes wide open
I've got my eyes wide open
I've been keeping my hopes unbroken, yeah

Your love is a symphony
All around me
Running through me
Your love is a melody
Underneath me
Running to me

Your love is a song
Yeah, yeah
Your love is my remedy
Oh your love is a song

And I would do anything for love,
I'd run right into hell and back.
I would do anything for love,
I'll never lie to you and that's a fact.

But I'll never forget the way you feel right now, oh no, no way.
And I would do anything for love,
Oh I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
But I won't do that,
No I won't do that.

And some days it don't come easy,
And some days it don't come hard,
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end.

And some nights you're breathing fire.
And some nights you're carved in ice.
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again.

And maybe I'm crazy.
Oh it's crazy and it's true.
I know you can save me, no one else can save me now but you.

As long as the planets are turning.
As long as the stars are burning.
As long as your dreams are coming true, you'd better believe it!

That I would do anything for love,
And I'll be there till the final act.
And I would do anything for love,
And I'll take the vow and seal a pact.

But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight.

And I would do anything for love,
But I won't do that.
No, I won't do that!

I would do anything for love,
Anything you've been dreaming of,
But I just won't do that.
[x2]

[Solo]
And some days I pray for silence,
And some days I pray for soul,
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll!

And maybe I'm lonely,
That's all I'm qualified to be.
There's just one and only, one and only promise I can keep.

As long as the wheels are turning.
As long as the fires are burning.
As long as your prayers are coming true, you'd better believe it!

That I would do anything for love,
And you know it's true and that's a fact.
I would do anything for love,
And there'll never be no turning back.

But I'll never do it better than I do it with you, so long, so long.
And I would do anything for love,
Oh, I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
But I won't do that.
No, no, no, I won't do.....

I would do anything for love.
Anything you've been dreaming of.
But I just won't do that!
[x3]

But I'll never stop dreaming of you,
Every night of my life.
No way.

And I would do anything for love.
But I won't do that.
No I won't do that.


[Girl]
Will you raise me up, will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this God forsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

[Boy]
I can do that. Oh I can do that.

[Girl]
Will you cater to every fantasy I've got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot? Hot!
Will you take me places I've never known?

[Boy]
Now I can do that! Oh oh now, I can do that!

[Girl]
After awhile you'll forget everything.
It was a brief interlude
And a midsummer night's fling,
And you'll see that it's time to move on.

[Boy]
I won't do that. I won't do that.

[Girl}
I know the territory, I've been around,
It'll all turn to dust and will all fall down,
Sooner or later, you'll be screwing around.

[Boy]
I won't do that. No, I won't do that.

Anything for love,
Oh, I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
But I won't do that.
No, I won't do that....

But I'd do anything for love...

Hey, have you ever tried
really reaching out for the other side?
I'm maybe climbing on rainbows but baby we'll go.

Dreams, they're for those who sleep, life is for us to keep
and if you're wondering what this song is leading to
I want to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.

Ooooh! you don't know me well
and every little thing more the time we'll take
if you believe the things I do and we'll see it through.

Life can be short or long, love can be right or wrong
and if i choose the one I'd like to help me through
I'll like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.

Baby you know that, dreams they're for those who sleep
life is for us to keep
and if i choose the one I'd like to help me through
I'll like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it

This city's saving grace
But whoever knows, nobody knows
Why he'd roll the eyes back
Why he'd roll those eyes, those heartless eyes

Well I won't pretend to lie
Once more protect my blinded sight
You'd say
For I came from a fish you mock the place where I exist and live.

That world is calling
So I'm crawling back to sea
Against the surge of waves that
Held us in that ancient grip beneath
Retreat to safer waters

Still learning what chaos kills
But whoever cares, nobody cares like you do
Why we'd abandon time, just shut the door
Why we'd go to the wall, claim less is more

Well I won't pretend to lie
Once more protect my blinded sight
You'd say
For I came from a fish you mock the place where I exist and live.

That world is calling
So I'm crawling back to sea
Against the surge of waves that
Held us in that ancient grip beneath
Retreat to safer waters [2x]

Strawberry lips shining in the summer sun
Canary-tipped glowing there for everyone
You fell asleep under the cherry tree
La La La La La
It's a beautiful world we're all here

Your winter skin warming in the summer sun
We know within you will stay forever young

You fell asleep under the solid sea
It's time to wake up
The moon is high above you
We're all here 'cause we love you
And when you finally open your eyes and ears
You'll see and you'll hear us sing

La La La La La
It's a beautiful world we're all here

It's a beautiful world we're all here

The Wild And The Young - Quiet Riot
Posted: 8/1/2011 11:53:02 AM
Times are changing
Nothing stays the same
For this jukebox generation

Adhere to fashion
Like computer games
Modern day communication

The news hard to take
Will fade tomorrow
They are the strong
They'll survive

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Yeah
Hah!

Roaring passion
With no guilt or shame
It's accepting education, yeah!

Misbehaving
No regrets, no blame
With a bold kind of sophistication

So close to the edge
And high on the wire
They are not wrong
They're alive

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Ha!

So close to the edge
And high on the wire
They are not wrong
They're alive

Look out!

Wild, wild
The wild and the
Young, y-y-y-young

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Oh yeah

Dream Warriors - Dokken
Posted: 8/2/2011 11:39:53 AM
I lie awake and dread the lonely nights
I'm not alone, I wonder if these heavy eyes can face the unknown
When I close my eyes, I realize you'll come my way
I'm standing in the night alone forever together, oh

We're the dream warriors, don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors and maybe tonight, maybe tonight you'll be gone

I feel the touch comin' over me
I can't explain, I hear the voices callin' out, callin' my name
It's the same desire to feel the fire that's comin' your way
I'm standing in the night alone forever together, oh

We're the dream warriors, don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors, maybe tonight you'll be gone
We're the dream warriors, ain't gonna dream no more
(Dream warriors)
And maybe tonight, maybe tonight you'll be gone

Sweet revenge, the bitter end this time
Break the spell of illusion bound together waiting for you

Dream warriors, don't wanna dream no more
We're the dream warriors, maybe tonight you'll be gone
We're the dream warriors, ain't gonna dream no more
(Dream warriors)
We're the dream warriors and maybe tonight, maybe tonight you'll be gone
(Dream warriors)

(Dream warriors)
Maybe tonight you'll be gone
(Dream warriors)
Forever
(Dream warriors)
Maybe tonight you'll be gone

I'm stuck in this bed you made,
Alone with a sinking feeling.
I saw through the words you said,
To the secrets you've been keeping.
It's written upon your face,
All the lies how they cut so deeply.
You can't get enough you take,
And take and take and never say.

No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down / Black out / Blood in your eye

You say that it's not your fault,
And swear that I am mistaken.
You said it's not what it seems,
No remorse for the trust you're breaking.
You run but then back you fall,
Suffocate in the mess you're making.
You can't get enough you take,
And take and take and take and take,
**** it
Are you listening?

No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down / You push it back down
No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down / Black out / Blood in your eye


Floating down / as colors fill the light
We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite
And floating up / you pass us in the night
A future gazing out / a past to overwrite
So come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect the things you know
Come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect what you've let go


Come down, oh.
Come down, oh.
Come down.
Come down, oh.
Come down, oh.

Home Sweet Home - Mötley Crüe
Posted: 8/3/2011 1:03:33 PM
You know I'm a dreamer
But my heart's of gold
I had to run away high
So, I wouldn't come home low

Just when things went right
Doesn't mean they're always wrong
Just take this song and you'll never feel
Left all alone

Take me to your heart
Feel me in your bones
Just one more night
And I'm comin' off this
Long and winding road

I'm on my way, I'm on my way
Home sweet home, tonight tonight
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
Home sweet home

You know that I've seen
Too many romantic dreams
Up in lights, fallin' off
The silver screen

My heart's like an open book
For the whole world to read
Sometime, nothing keeps me together
At the seams

I'm on my way, I'm on my way
Home sweet home, tonight tonight
I'm on my way, just set me free
Home sweet home

Home sweet home

Hey Juliet
(Hey Juliet)
Hey I've been watching you
Every little thing you do
Every time I see you pass
In my homeroom class, makes my heart beat fast
I've tried to page you twice
But I see you roll your eyes
Wish I could make it real
But your lips are sealed, that ain't no big deal
'Cause I know you really want me, yeah
I hear your friends talk about me, yeah
So why you tryin'to do without me, yeahhhh
When you got me
Where you want me

(Hey Juliet)
I think you're fine
You really blow my mind
Maybe someday (someday), you and me can run away
I just want you to know
I wanna be your Romeo
Hey Juliet
(Hey Juliet)
(Hey Juliet)

Girl you got me on my knees
Beggin' please, baby please
Got my best DJ on the radiowaves saying
'Juliet, why do you do him this way'
Too far to turn around (turn around)
So I'm gonna stand my ground (stand my ground)
Gimme just a little bit of hope
With a smile or a glance, gimme one more chance

'Cause I know you really want me, yeah
I hear your friends talk about me, yeah
So why you tryin' to do without me, yeahhhh
When you got me
Where you want me

Hey Juliet
I think you're fine
You really blow my mind
Maybe (maybe) someday (someday), you and me can run away
I just want you to know
I wanna be your Romeo
Hey Juliet
(Hey, hey Juliet)
(Hey Juliet)

I know you really want me
I hear your friends talk about me
So why you tryin' to do without me
When you got me
Where you want me
You don't have to say 'forever'
For us to hang together
So hear (hear) me (me) when (when) I (I) say (say)
Hey, Hey, Hey Julieeet
(Hey Juliet)

Hey Juliet
I think (I think) you're fine (you're fine)
You really blow my mind (blow my mind)
Maybe (maybe) someday (someday), you and me can run away (run away)
I just want you to know
I wanna be your Romeo
Hey Juliet
Hey, hey, Julieeet
(Hey Juliet)

Hey Juliet
I think (I think) you're fine (you're fine)
You really blow my mind (blow my mind)
Maybe (maybe) someday (someday), you and me can run away (run away)

I wanna be your Romeo
Hey Juliet
(Hey, hey, Julieeet)

here's some Alanis Morissette/ hand in my pocket
Posted: 8/3/2011 6:04:56 PM
I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five
I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything's gonna be quite alright
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette
And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign
I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chickenshit
I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano
And what it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab

I Can Tell
I Can Tell
How much You hate This
Deep Down Inside
You Know It's Killing Me
I Can Call, Wish You Well
And Try To Change This
But Nothing I Can Say
Would Change Anything

Where Were My Senses
I Left Them All Behind
Why Did I Turn Away

I Wish I Could Save You
I Wish I Could Say To You
I'm Not Going Nowhere
I Wish I Could Say To You
It's Gonna Be Alright
It's Gonna Be Alright

I Didn't Mean
Didn't Mean
To Leave You Stranded
Went Away Cause I
Didn't Want To Face The Truth

Reaching Out
Reach For Me
Empty Handed
You Don't Know if I Care
You're Trying To Find The Proof

There Were Times I'd Wonder
Could I Have Eased Your Pain
Why Did I Turn Away

I Wish I Could Save You
I Wish I Could Say To You
I'm Not Going Nowhere
I Wish I Could Say To You
It's Gonna Be Alright

It's Gonna Be Alright ( Alright )
It's Gonna Be Alright (Save You)
It's Gonna Be Alright ( I Wish I Could Save You )

We Can Pretend Nothings Changed
Pretend It's All The Same
And There Will Be No Pain
Tonight...
It's Gonna Be Alright (It's Gonna be Alright)


I Wish I Could Save You
I Wish I Could Say To You
I'm Not Going Nowhere (Save You)
I Wish I Could Say To You (Say To You)
It's Gonna Be Alright

It's Gonna Be Alright( Alright )
It's Gonna Be Alright (Save You)
It's Gonna Be Alright ( I Wish I Could Save You )
It's Gonna Be Alright...

Life In The Fast Lane - The Eagles
Posted: 8/4/2011 12:28:30 PM
He was a hard-headed man
He was brutally handsome, and she was terminally pretty
She held him up, and he held her for ransom in the heart
of the cold, cold city
He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude
They said he was ruthless, they said he was crude
They had one thing in common, they were
good in bed
She'd say, 'Faster, faster. The lights are turnin' red."
Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind, mm
Are you with me so far?

Eager for action and hot for the game
The coming attraction, the drop of a name
They knew all the right people, they took
all the right pills
They threw outrageous parties, they paid heavenly bills
There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face
She pretended not to notice, she was caught up
in the race

Out every evening, until it was light
He was too tired to make it, she was too tired
to fight about it

Life in the fast lane
Surely make you lose your mind
Life in the fast lane, everything all the time
Life in the fast lane, uh huh
Blowin' and burnin', blinded by thirst
They didn't see the stop sign,
took a turn for the worse

She said, "Listen, baby. You can hear the engine
ring. We've been up and down this highway;
haven't seen a goddam thing."
He said, "Call the doctor. I think I'm gonna crash."
"The doctor say he's comin', but you gotta pay him cash."
They went rushin' down that freeway,
messed around and got lost
They didn't care they were just dyin' to get off
And it was life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Imelda May - Psycho
Posted: 8/4/2011 1:36:59 PM
Keep on takin' your medication,
Lock that temper behind those pills
Your brain is fryin' insanely flyin'
Just remember it's bad to kill

I go with a psycho, I go with a psycho

Stop your growlin', no more prowlin'
Leave those cars and people alone
You're an animal, a human cannibal
Snarlin' and a snappin' like a dog on a bone

I go with a psycho, I go with a psycho

You terrify the neighbours when you scream and shout
You look like it's contagious, you're foaming at the mouth
You're a freakin' nightmare when you're lying in my bed
You sleep with eyes wide open, like the livin' dead

I go with a psycho, I go with a psycho

I Don't know anything at all and I'm somebody else
It could take years to find you, it could take years to find myself.
And I don't need to hear your answer I just need you to see,
that I think it's time to break down these walls that we throw up.

Am I still breathing have I lost that feeling,
Am I made of glass 'cause you see right through me
I don't know who I am and you're the only one who sees that
I can't ask these questions that cannot be answered today.

And even if everything goes wrong and we start to fall apart
I will understand where you are, I will understand this by myself
And I don't need to hear your answer I just need you to feel
Like there are no boundaries at all.

Am I still breathing have I lost that feeling,
Am I made of glass 'cause you see right through me
I don't know who I am and you're the only one who sees that
I can't ask these questions that cannot be answered today.

Today, I don't mind today
Today, I don't matter today

And how far have we come, too far to throw away this past,
Will you be there waiting for me
I have to ask what we are, if I ask today it just won't last
So I'll be here waiting for you.

Will we ever feel this good again
Will we ever feel this real again, again
Will you ever be mine again
Will we ever feel this real again

Not today
Today, I don't mind today
Today, I don't matter today

Victim Of Love - The Eagles
Posted: 8/5/2011 11:02:54 AM
What kind of love have you got?
You should be home but you're not
A room full of noise and dangerous boys
Still make you thirsty and hot

I heard about you and that man
There's just one thing I don't understand
You say he's a liar and he put out your fire
How come you still got his gun in your hand?

Victim of love, I see a broken heart
You got your stories to tell
Victim of love, it's such an easy part
And you know how to play it so well

Some people never come clean
I think you know what I mean
You're walkin' the wire, pain and desire
Looking for love in between

Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you mine
This ain't no time to be cool
And tell all your girlfriends
Your "been around the world" friends
That talk is for losers and fools

Victim of love, I see a broken heart
I could be wrong, but I'm not, no I'm not
Victim of love, we're not so far apart
Show me, what kind of love have you got?

Victim of love, I see a broken heart
I could be wrong, but I'm not
Victim of love, we're not so far apart
What kind of love have you got?

Victim of love, you're just a victim of love
I could be wrong, but I'm not, no I'm not
Victim of love, now you're a victim of love
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?
What kind of love have you got?

Arctic Monkeys ~ I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Posted: 8/5/2011 7:49:55 PM
*giggling*

[verse]
Stop making the eyes at me,
I'll stop making the eyes at you.
What it is that surprises me is that I don't really you to
And your shoulders are frozen (as cold as the night)
Oh, but you're an explosion but you're dynamite
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
Lightning the fuse might in a bang with a bang-go

[chorus]
I said I bet that you look good on the dance floor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or what
Don't know what you're looking for
Well I bet that you look good on the dance floor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
from 1984!

[verse]
I wish you'd stop ignoring me because you're sending me to despair,
Without a sound yeh you're calling me and I don't think it's very fair
That your shoulders are frozen (as cold as the night)
Oh, but you're an explosion (You're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio but I don't care for sand
Lighting the fuse might result in a bang with a bang-go

[chorus]
I said I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or what
I don't know what you're looking for
I said I bet that you look good on the dance floor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
From 1984!

MGMT~Electric Feel
Posted: 8/6/2011 5:23:52 AM
All along the western front
People line up to receive
She got the current in her hand
Just shock you like you won't believe
Saw her in the amazon
With the voltage running through her skin
Standing there with nothing on
She gonna teach me how to swim

I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel
I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

All along the eastern shore
Put your circuits in the sea
This is what the world is for
Making electricity
You can feel it in your mind
Oh you can do it all the time
Plug it in, change the world
You are my electric girl

I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel
I said ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
