Here are the lyrics for Use Your Illusion 1

Right Next Door To Hell -
 
I'll take a nicotine, caffeine, sugar fix
Jesus don't ya git tired of turnin' tricks
But when your innocence dies
You'll find the blues
Seems all our heroes were born to lose
Just walkin' through time
You believe this heat
Another empty house another dead end street
Gonna rest my bones an sit for a spell
This side of heaven this close to hell

Right next door to hell
Why don't you write a letter to me yeah
I said i'm right next door to hell
An so many eyes are on me
Right next door to hell
I got nowhere else to be
Right next door to hell
Feels like the walls are closing in on me

My mama never really said much to me
She was much too young and scared ta be
Hell "freud" might say that's what i need
But all i really ever get is greed
An most my friends they feel the same
Hell we don't even have ourselves to blame
But times are hard and thrills are cheaper
As your arms get shorter
Your pockets get deeper

Right next door to hell
Why don't you write a letter to me yeah
I said i'm right next door to hell
An so many eyes are on me
Right next door to hell
I never thought this is where i'd be
Right next door to hell
Thinkin' time'll stand still for me

Fuck you
Bitch

Not bad kids just stupid ones
Yeah we thought we'd own the world
An gettin' used was havin' fun
I said we're not sad kids just lucid ones yeah
Flowin' through life not collectin' anyone
So much out there
Still so much to see
Time's too much to handle
Time's too much for me
It drives me up the walls
Drives me out of my mind
Can you tell me what this means...huh?
 
Dust N Bones -

He lost his mind today.
He left it out back on the highway.
On "65".

She loved him yesterday.
Yesterday's over .
I said okay.
That's all right.
Time moves on.
That's the way .
We live an hope to see the next day.
That's all right.

Sometimes these things they are so easy .
Sometimes these things they are so cold.
Sometimes these things just seem to .
rip you right in two.
Oh no man don't let 'em get ta you.

She loved him yesterday .
He laid her sister .
She said O.K..
An that's all right .
Buried her things today.
Way back out deep.
Behind the driveway .
And that's all right .

Sometimes these women are so easy.
Sometimes these women are so cold .
Sometimes these women seem to.
rip you right in two.
Only if you let 'em get to you.

Ya get out on your own .
And you/take all that you own.
And you/forget about your home .
And then you're/just fuckin' gone.

There's no logic here today.
Do as you got to, go your own way.
I said that's right.
Time's short your life's your own.
And in the end.
We are just .

Dust n' bones .

Live And Let Die -

When you were young .
and your heart was an open book.
You used to say live and let live.
You know you did.
You know you did.
You know you did.
But if this ever changin' world .
in which we live in .
Makes you give in and cry.
Say live and let die .
Live and let die .

What does it matter to ya.
When ya got a job to do ya got to do it well .
You got to give the other fella hell.

You used to say live and let live.
You know you did.
You know you did.
You know you did.
But if this ever changin' world .
in which we live in .
Makes you give in and cry.
Say live and let die .
Live and let die .

Dont Cry (original) -

Talk to me softly .
There's something in your eyes .
Don't hang your head in sorrow .
And please don't cry.
I know how you feel inside I've.
I've been here before .
Somethin's changin' inside you .
And don't you know.

Don't you cry tonight.
I still love you baby.
Don't you cry tonight .
Don't you cry tonight.
there's a heaven above you baby.
And don't you cry tonight.

Give me a whisper.
And give me a sigh .
Give me a kiss before you tell me goodbye.
Don't you take it so hard now.
And please don't take it so bad.
I'll still be thinking of y.
ou.
And the times we had... baby.

Don't you cry tonight.
Don't you cry tonight .
Don't you cry tonight.
there's a heaven above you baby.
And don't you cry tonight.

And please remember that I never lied.
And please remember.
how I felt inside now honey.
You gotta make it your own way.
But you'll be alright now sugar .
You'll feel better tomorrow.
Come the morning light now baby.

And don't you cry tonight.
An don't you cry tonight .
An don't you cry tonight.
there's a heaven above you baby.
And don't you cry .
Don't you ever cry.
Don't you cry tonight .
Baby maybe someday .
Don't you cry.
Don't you ever cry.
Don't you cry.
Tonight.

Perfect Crime -

Kickin' back in the shadows .
Got no need for the light.
Who's sorry now old timer.
Look at how you've spent your life.
Scroungin' for change.
to put some money in your pocket.
My how scratch does burn.
Laughin' at the suckers as you pissed it away.

But I got the time and I got the muscle .
I got the need to lay it all on the line .
I ain't afraid of your smoke screen hustle .
It's a perfect crime .
Goddamn it it's a perfect crime.
Motherfucker it's a perfect crime .
I said it's perfect.

Keep the demons down.
and drag the skeletons out .
I got a blind man followin' me in chains.
I said he's fun to watch .
when the world has stopped .
An I think he's got somethin' to say.
"You wanna fuck with me, don't fuck with me .
'Cause I'm what you'll be so don't fuck with me.
If you had better sense .
You'd just step aside from the bad side of me .
Don't fuck wit'da bad side o' me.
Stay away from the bad side o' me.
Don't fuck wit'da bad side".

T minus 1:09 and counting.

Ostracized but that's all right .
I was thinkin' about somethin' myself.

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8.

Call on everybody who's got last rites.
Said it's better if you locked 'em away.
Runnin' through the visions .
at the speed of light.
Won't ya let me be.
Motherfucker just let me be.
Goddamn it better let me be.
Don't ya know ya better let me....

Perfect crime .
Goddamn it it's a perfect crime.
Motherfucker it's a perfect crime .
Don't cha know .
It's a perfect crime.

You Aint The First -

I tried so hard just to get through to you.
But your head's so far .
from the realness of truth.
Was it just a come on in the dark .
Wasn't meant to last long .
I think you've worn your welcome honey .
I'll just see you along as I sing you this song .

Time can pass slowly, things always change.
Your day's been numbered .
and I've read your last page .
You was just a temporary lover .
honey you ain't the first.
Lots of others came before you woman .
said but you been the worst.
Sa' you been the worst.

Say goodbye to you girl.
So long, farewell.
I can't hear you cryin'.
Your jivin's been hell.
So look for me walkin' .
Down your street at night.
I'll be in with another .
Deep down inside .

Deep down inside.

Bad Obsession -

I can't stop thinkin' .
Thinking 'bout sinkin' .
Sinkin' down into my bed .
I call my mother .
She's just a cunt now.
She said I'm sick in the head.
She said you ain't special.
So who you foolin' .
Don't try ta give me a line.
But I can't stop thinkin' 'bout seein' ya.
one more time .
(Oh no).
But I already left you .
and you're better off left behind.

It's a bad obsession .
It's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .
It's a bad obsession .
It's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .

Too bad you're fucked up .

I used to be wasted .
Always tried to take it .
Take it down into my vein.
I call the doctor.
He's just another .
He said I'm sick in the brain.
He said you ain't special.
So who you foolin' .
Don't try ta give me a line.
But I can't stop thinking 'bout doin' it .
one more time .
(Oh no).
But I already left you .
and you're better off left behind.
(Oh yeah).

Aw it's a bad obsession .
It's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .
It's a bad obsession .
It's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .

So bad....

Boy .

It's a .
It's a.
Heads up.
It's a bad obsession .
It's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .
Now it's a bad obsession .
It.
's always messin'.
It's always messin' my mind .

But I can't stop thinking 'bout doin' it .
one more time .
(Oh no).
See I already left you.
and you're better off left behind.
(Oh no oh no).
It's a bad obsession.
and you're always messin' my mind.
See I already left you .
and you're better off left behind.
Uh huh...no.

Maybe you'll do better next time.
Punk!!.

Back Off Bitch -

Oh baby, pretty baby .
Oh honey, you let me down honey.
I ain't playin' childhood games no more .
I said it's time for me to even the score .
So stake your claim, your claim to fame.
But baby call another name .
When you feel the fire, and taste the flame.

Back off, back off bitch.
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch.
You better, back off, back off bitch.
Face of an angel with the love of a witch.
Back off, back off bitch.
Back off, back off bitch.

Makin' love .
Cheap heartbreaker, broken backed, .
Nasty ballbreaker, stay out of my bed, .
outta my head .
If it's lovin' you, I'm better off dead.

Back off, back off bitch.
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch.
You better, back off, back off bitch.
Face of an angel with the love of a witch.
Back off, back off bitch.
Back off, back off bitch.

Emotions ripped, gone on a binge.
Life lipped I said you're off the hinge .
Tellin' lies of such fame and glory.
I don't even wanna hear your story.

Back off, back off bitch.
Down in the gutter dyin' in the ditch.
You better, back off, back off bitch.
Face of an angel with the love of a witch.
Back off, back off bitch.
It's such a pity that you're such a bitch.
Back off, back off bitch.
It's time to burn-burn the witch.
Back off, back off bitch.
Back off, back off bitch.
Back off, back off bitch.
Bitch.
Bitch.
Bitch.
Bitch.
Hey wha'd'ya think he's tryin' to say there,.
anyway?.
I think it's something each person's.
s'posed to take in their own special way.
Fucking bitch.

Double Talkin' Jive -

Found a head and an arm in da garbage can.
Don't know why I'm here.
Livin' on the run for oh so long.
I gotta go collect.
Double talkin' jive.
Get the money motherfucker.
'Cause I got, no more patience .
Double talkin'.
-I got (lies)- .
No more patience man.

Back in town an'a all new friends.
They sayin' how ya been?.
Fucked up and out of place.
That's how I felt back then.
Double talkin' jive.
Get the money motherfucker.
'Cause I got no more patience .
Double talkin'.
-I got (lies)- .
No more patience man .
You dig what I'm sayin'?!*.

November Rain -

When I look into your eyes .
I can see a love restrained .
But darlin' when I hold you .
Don't you know I feel the same .

'Cause nothin' lasts forever.
And we both know hearts can change .
And it's hard to hold a candle .
In the cold November rain .

We've been through this such a long long time.
Just tryin' to kill the pain.

But lovers always come and lovers always go.
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today.
Walking away .

If we could take the time to lay it on the line .
I could rest my head .
just knowin' that you were mine.
All mine .
So if you want to love me .
then darlin' don't refrain .
Or I'll just end up walkin' .
in the cold November rain.

Do you need some time.. on your own .
Do you need some time.. all alone .
Everybody needs some time.. on their own.
Don't you know you need some time.. all alone .

I know it's hard to keep an open heart .
When even friends seem out to harm you .
But if you could heal a broken heart .
Wouldn't time be out to charm you.

Sometimes I need some time.. on my own.
Sometimes I need some time.. all alone.
Everybody needs some time.. on their own.
Don't you know you need some time.. all alone.

And when your fears subside .
and shadows still remain .
I know that you can love me.
when there's no one left to blame.
So never mind the darkness .
we still can find a way .
'Cause nothin' lasts forever .
even cold November rain.

Don't ya think that you need somebody.
Don't ya think that you need someone .
Everybody needs somebody.
You're not the only one.
You're not the only one.

The Garden -

You know you're all alone.
Your friends they aren't at home.
Everybody's gone to the garden.
As you look into the trees.
You can look but you don't see.
The flowers seem to tease you at the garden.
Everybody's there, but you don't seem to care.
What's it with you man, and this garden.

Turned into my worst phobia,.
a crazy man's utopia.
If you're lost no one can show ya,.
but it sure was glad to know ya.
Only poor boys take a chance,.
on this garden's song and dance .
Feel her flowers as they wrap around,.
but only smart boys do without.

You can find it all inside.
No need to wrestle with your pride.
No you ain't losing your mind .
You're just in the garden.
They can lead you to yourself.
Or you can throw it on the shelf.
But you know you can look inside .
For the garden .

I wasn't really scared .
Lost my virginity there,.
to a gypsy with blond hair.
But now no one seems to care .
Like a mouse inside a maze, .
wandering round 4 daze.
With a smile upon my face,.
I never wanna leave this place .
Only poor boys take a chance,.
on this garden's song and dance .
Feel her flowers as they wrap around,.
but only smart boys do without .
Turned into my worst phobia, .
it's a crazy man's utopia.
If you're lost no one can show ya, .
but it sure was glad to know ya .
Bye bye .
So long, bye bye .
It's glad to know ya .
Bye bye.
Bye bye.
Aw... so long.

Garden Of Eden -

It's a critical solution.
And the east coast got the blues.
It's a mass of confusion.
Like the lies they sell to you .

You got a glass jawed toothache.
Of a mental disease.
An they be runnin' round back.
See 'em line up on their knees.
'Cause the kiss ass sycophants.
Throwin' penance at your feet.
When they got nowhere to go.
Watch 'em come in off the streets.
While they're bangin' out front.
Inside they're slammin' to the crunch.
Go on an throw me to the lions.
And the whole damn screamin' bunch .
'Cause the pissed-off rip-offs .
'R' everywhere you turn.
Tell me how a generation's .
ever s'posed to learn.
This fire is burnin' and it's out of control.
It's not a problem you can stop.
It's rock n' roll.

I read it on a wall.
It went straight to my head.
It said "Dance to the tension.
Of a world on edge".
We got racial violence.
and who'll cast the first stone .
And sex is used anyway it can be .
Sometimes when I look out .
It's so hard to see the day.
It's a feelin' you can have it.
It's not mine to take away.

Lost in the Garden of Eden.
Said we're lost in the Garden of Eden.
And there's no one's gonna believe this.
But we're lost in the Garden of Eden .
This fire is burnin' and it's out of control.
It's not a problem you can stop.
It's rock n' roll.
Suck on that .

Looking through this point of view.
There's no way I'm gonna fit in.
Don't ya tell me what my eyes see.
Don't ya tell me who to believe in .
I ain't superstitious.
But I know when something's wrong.
I've been draggin' my heels.
with a bitch called hope .
Let the undercurrent drag me along.

Lost in the Garden of Eden.
Said we're lost in the Garden of Eden.
And there's no one's gonna believe this.
But we're lost in the Garden of Eden .

Most organized religions make.
a mockery of humanity.
Our goverments are dangerous.
and out of control.
The Garden of Eden is just another graveyard.
Said if they had someone to buy it .
Said I'm sure they'd sell my soul.

This fire is burnin' and it's out of control.
It's not a problem you can stop.
It's rock n' roll .
Lost in the Garden of Eden .
(An we ain't talkin' about no.
poison apple or some missin' rib ya hear).
Said we're lost in the Garden of Eden.
Said there's no one's gonna believe this.
Said we're lost in the Garden of Eden .
This fire is burnin' and it's out of control.
It's not a problem you can stop.
It's rock n' roll .

Dont Damn Me -

Don't damn me .
When I speak a piece of my mind.
'Cause silence isn't golden.
When I'm holding it inside .
'Cause I've been where I have been .
An I've seen what I have seen .
I put the pen to the paper.
'Cause it's all a part of me .

Be it a song or a casual conversation.
To hold my .
tongue speaks .
of quiet reservations.
Your words once heard .
they can place you in a faction.
My words may disturb.
But at least there's a reaction.

Sometimes I wanna kill.
Sometimes I wanna die.
Sometimes I wanna destroy .
Sometimes I wanna cry.
Sometimes I could get even.
Sometimes I could give up.
Sometimes I could give .
Sometimes I never give a fuck.

It's only for a while .
I hope you understand.
I never wanted this to happen.
Didn't want to be a man .
So I hid inside my world .
I took what I could find .
I cried when I was lonely.
I fell down when I was blind.

But don't damn me when I speak.
a piece of my mind.
'Cause silence isn't golden.
when I'm holding it inside .
'Cause I've been where I have been .
An I've seen what I have seen .
I put the pen to the paper.
'Cause it's all a part of me .

How can I ever satisfy you .
An how can I ever make you see.
That deep inside we're all somebody .
An it don't matter who you wanna be .
But now I gotta smile I hope you comprehend.
For this man can say it happened .
'Cause this child has been condemned.
So I stepped into your world .
I kicked you in the mind.
An I'm the only witness .
to the nature of my crime .

But look at what we've done .
to the innocent and young .
Whoa listen to who's talking.
'cause we're not the only ones .
The trash collected by the eyes .
and dumped into the brain.
Said it tears into our conscious thoughts.
you tell me who's to blame .

I know you don't wanna hear me crying.
An I know you don't wanna hear me deny.
That your satisfaction lies in your illusions.
But your delusions are yours an not mine.
We take for granted we know the whole story.
We judge a book by its cover.
and read what we want .
Between selected lines .

Don't hail me .
An don't idolize the ink .
Or I've failed in my attentions.
can you find the missing link.
Your only validation is in living your own life.
Vicarious existence is a fucking waste of time .
So I send this song to the offended.
I said what I meant and I've never pretended.
As so many others do intending just to please.
If I damned your point of view .
could you turn the other cheek.

Don't damn me when I speak a piece a mind.
'Cause silence isn't golden.
when I'm holding it inside .
I've been where I have been .
An I've seen what I have seen .
Put the pen to the paper.
'Cause it's all a part of me .
Don't damn me .
I said don't damn me .
I said don't hail me.
Don't damn me .

Bad Apples -

Diamonds and fast cars.
Money to burn.
I got my head in the clouds.
I got these thoughts to churn.
Got my feet in the sand.
I got a house on the hill.
I got a headache like a mother.
Twice the price of my thrills.
An it's a cold day it's a continental drift.
I said this traffic is hell.
Can you give me a lift.
An I'll try to paint a story.
Got your pictures to hell.
Yeah you got to make a living.
With what you bring yourself to sell.

I got some genuine.
Imitation.
Bad apples.
Free sample.
For your piece o' mind.
Only $9.95.
I got my camera back from customs.
Got my law fees up to date.
Hell they musta seen me comin'.
Ain't this life so fuckin' great.

When the shit hit the fan .
It was all I could stand.
Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer.
My body's breathing while it can .
But what I don't understand is that.
My world ain't gettin' no brighter.
If I could touch the sky .
Well I would float on by.
While everybody's talkin' .
Hell I'm just another guy.
If it were up to me .
I'd say just leave me be .
Why let one bad apple .
Spoil the whole damn bunch.

Gold and caviar .
Now why'nt you pour my apathy.
I'd have all my bases covered.
If I could teach my hands to see.
But now we're down in the deep end.
Where they'd love to watch you drown.
I said your laundry could use washing .
We'll hang it up all over town .
I said Hollywood's like a dryer .
An we're down on Sunset Strip .
An you'll be suckin' down the clorox.
'Til your life's all nice and crisp.

When the shit hit the fan .
It was all I could stand.
Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer.
My body's breathin' while it can .
But what I don't understand is that.
My world ain't gettin' no brighter.
If I could touch the sky .
Well I would float on by.
While ever.
ybody's talkin' .
Hell I'm just another guy.
If it were up to me .
I'd say just leave me be .
Why let one bad apple .
Spoil the whole damn bunch.

When the shit hit the fan .
It was all I could stand.
Yeah, well I'm a frequent flyer.
My body's breathin' while it can .
But what I don't understand is that.
My world ain't gettin' no brighter.
If I could touch the sky .
Well I would float on by.
While everybody's talkin' .
Hell I'm just another guy.
If it were up to me .
I'd say just leave me be .
Why let one bad apple .
Spoil the whole damn bunch.
Why let that one bad apple .
Spoil the whole damn bunch.
Boy!!.

Dead Horse -

Sick of this life .
Not that you'd care.
I'm not the only one with.
whom these feelings I share.

Nobody understands, quite why we're here .
We're searchin' for answers .
That never appear.

But maybe if I looked real hard I'd .
I'd see you're tryin' too .
To understand this life, .
that we're all going through .
(Then when she said she was gonna like .
wreck my car... I didn't know what to do).

Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse.
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down.
I'd like to think that our love's .
worth a tad more .
It may sound funny but you'd think by now.
I'd be smilin' .
I guess some things never change .
Never change .

I met an old cowboy .
I saw the look in his eyes .
Somethin' tells me he's been here before.
'Cause experience makes you wise.
I was only a small child.
When the thought first came to me.
That I'm a son of a gun and the gun of a son.
That brought back the devil in me.

But sometimes I feel like .
I'm beatin' a dead horse.
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down.
I'd like to think that our love's .
worth a tad more .
It may sound funny but you'd think by now.
I'd be smilin' .
I guess some things never change .
Never change .

I ain't quite what you'd call an old soul.
Still wet behind the ears.
I been around this track a couple o' times.
But now the dust is startin' to clear.
Oh yeah!!!.

Sometimes I feel like I'm beatin' a dead horse.
An I don't know why you'd be bringin' me down.
I'd like to think that our love's .
worth a tad more .
It may sound funny but you'd think by now.
I'd be smilin' .
Ooh yeah I'd be smilin'.
No way I'd be smilin'.
Ooh smilin'.

Sick of this life .
Not that you'd care.
I'm not the only one.
With whom these feelings I share.

Coma -

Hey you caught me in a coma.
And I don't think I wanna.
Ever come back to this... world again.
Kinda like it in a coma.
'Cause no one's ever gonna.
Oh, make me come back to this... world again.
Now I feel as if I'm floating away.
I can't feel all the pressure .
and I like it this way .
But my body's callin' .
My body's callin' .
Won't ya come back to this... world again.
Suspended deep in a sea of black.
I've got the light at the end .
I've got the bones on the mast.
Well, I've gone sailin', I've gone sailin' .
I could leave so easily .
While friends are calling back to me .
I said they're .
They're leaving it all up to me .
When all I needed was clarity .
An someone to tell me .
what the fuck is going on .
Goddamn it!.

Slippin' farther an farther away.
It's a miricle how long we can stay .
In a world our minds created .
In a world that's full of shit .

Help me.
Help me.
Help me.
Help me.
Bastard.

Please understand me .
I'm climbin' through the wreckage.
of all my twisted dreams .
But this cheap investigation just can't .
stifle all my screams .
And I'm waitin' at the crossroads .
Waiting for you .
Waiting for you .
Where are you?.

No one's gonna bother me anymore .
No one's gonna mess with my head no more.
I can't understand what all the fightin's for .
But it's so nice here down off the shore .
I wish you could see this .
'cause there's nothing to see .
It's peaceful here and it's fine with me .
Not like the world where I used to live .
I never really wanted to live .

Zap him again .
Zap the son of a bitch again.

Ya live your life like it's a coma.
So won't you tell me why we'd wanna .
With all the reasons you give it's .
It's kinda hard to believe.
But who am I to tell you that I've seen.
Any reason.
why you should stay .
Maybe we'd be better off without you anyway.

You got a one way ticket .
On your last chance ride .
Gotta one way ticket .
To your suicide .
Gotta one way ticket .
An there's no way out alive .
An all this crass communication .
That has left you in the cold .
Isn't much for consolation .
When you feel so weak and old .
But if home is where the heart is .
Then there's stories to be told.
No you don't need a doctor .
No one else can heal your soul.

Got your mind in submission .
Got your life on the line .
But nobody pulled the trigger .
They just stepped aside.
They be down by the water .
While you watch 'em waving goodbye.
They be callin' in the morning .
They be hangin' on the phone .
They be waiting for an answer .
But you know nobody's home.
And when the bell's stopped ringing.
It was nobody's fault but your own .
There were always ample warnings .
There were always subtle signs.
And you would have seen it comin' .
But we gave you too much time .
And when you said that no one's listening .
Why'd your best friend drop a dime.
Sometimes we get so tired of waiting .
For a way to spend our time .
An "It's so easy" to be social.
"It's so easy" to be cool.
Yeah it's easy to be hungry.
When you ain't got shit to lose .
And I wish that I could help you.
With what you hope to find .
But I'm still out here waiting .
Watching reruns of my life .
When you reach the point of breaking .
Know it's gonna take some time .
To heal the broken memories .
That another man would need .
Just to survive.
