1990 - Blood Nirvana LP

Bite

Downtown, red racer of pleasure
Downtown, go downtown
Downtown, crawler of jungle
Downtown, racer of pleasure
Go ahead, reptile cruiser
Shed your skin
What takes you down takes you high
You just want
A bite

Down, down, sell your ego
Downtown, all around
Wonderland turns upside down
Welcome out, have a seat
Together stuck by this nightmare clown

Baby explodes
In an instinct trip
I know what I am, babe, I know how I feel
Certain future, destruction of past
Tell me babe how things got so fast

Downtown, crawler of jungle,
Downtown, racer of pleasure
Each time I see you
I know I got to feed you
Go ahead...

Overloaded

Spider eyes
No place to run
357 always loaded
C'mon an' be
My trigger queen
Squeeze the steel over an over

An' I don't know
What eyelids are for
The wheel of soul
Keeps me ridin' along
Kickstart machine always ready to go
Always there - ready for the show

Overloaded...

Teenage blue
All undone
Well I don't care, it already exploded
Suicide MC
It's gotta be
Real loud
Overloaded
An' I don't know
What eyelids are for
This wheel of soul
Keeps me ridin' along
Kickstart machine always ready to go
Always there ready for the show

Overloaded...

Be greedy one
Be sleepless too
Mad preachers say
Be always loaded
Exploding scene
Pure kerosene
Real loud
Overloaded

Chain Train

This is not the velvet side
Sound of the chain
The flame will burn the bridge
Into a brand new day
New motor knowledge
A friend on your way
The solo fighter age
C' mon and jump
On the chain train

Those who ask questions know the answers anyway
I see the train pass track by track like a chain
Always behind you a runaway
It will kill your dog
C' mon and jump
On the chain train
This Silverado is death no matter what you do
Oh babe the one who writes the end is you
C' mon choose the right track give fire this way
Oh the answer's not far just one track away

On the chain train

And a chain is made out of links, baby

Desert Rose

Shot down for the seventh day
Razorheads on the desert way
You look like a saint
Closer to the end
Wasted flower desert rose
Where it blooms there lays our home
Enter danger zone / now the heat is on
Enter danger zone / now the heat is gone

An I don't think you're gonna need no money
Ain't gonna need nothing at all
It's like the light at the end of the valley
It's never close
It shines like the desert rose

Stonecold planet coast to coast
So late we're never lost
We're here to stay
Don't give the game away
Is there anything you'd like to say?
Do you think we all feel the same?
Would you like to cry?
Would you like to hate?
Would you like to cry?
Would you like to love?

An I don't think you're gonna need no money
Ain't gonna need nothing at all
It's like the light at the end of the valley
It's never close
It shines like the desert rose

Is there anyplace to hide?
Anything to leave behind?
Would you like to run?
Would you like to pray?
Would you like to run?
You gotta get away

An I don't think you're gonna need no money
Ain't gonna need nothing at all
It's like the light at the end of the valley
It's never close
It shines like the desert rose

An'I don't think you're gonna need no money
Desert Rose!

The Bad Roads

Gently like a blade
The night keeps moving in
Turning all the streetlights
Into a blood-painted sheet
I go walkin'
I need some talking
Like your father baby
Needs your pills
An you make me move
An you let me up
Let me down
Let me cruising all around
The bad roads

Gently like the night
The knife keeps moving in
Releasing all the angels out
Of the bopper machine
I go walking
I need no talking
I'm a red rat
Living in a black'n'white world
And you make me move
And you let me up
Let me down
Get me cruising all around
The bad roads

Oohh baby can't you see what's following me
Making all those white lights
Shine on me
I go walking
I need no talking
Now I' m getting ready
For the longest ride of them all
An' you make me move
An' you let me up
Let me down
Let me cruising all around
The bad roads

There's a roadkill on highway 13, baby

Cool Spine

Thrill city, red city
Lighthouses at the edge of your love
Non-stop elevation yeah!
KILL CITY, hot city
I'll have some, I think I'll have more
I'll step on it, I'm here for the whole
She can make me feel fine
She can make me fly
Cool Spine

Hollow city, secret city
Like a tattoo on Jesus' skin
Empty streets
A search through the vault
Steel city, mega city
No judge can stop
The nightide's flow
Jokers laugh through the wall
She can make me feel fine
She can fly me high
IT'S NEVER DARK
The lights shine so bright
She's got a cool spine DRIVE!
It's never dark
The lights shine so bright
I got to work it out right
I got a cool spine

I've been to the east
I've been to the west
An' I lived the worst but never the best
An' through it all
I kept that cool spine

Slave To The Wave

Cool-hot
The best part in the play
Wait till the curtain falls it just won't go away
Listen baby I think you got to roll the dice
If this ain't hell you 've been locked in paradise
Your time for love, brings time for vice
No way I really can't surf on ice

Sometimes it's so hot
I feels I'm melting away
Sometimes it's so cold
I got nothing to say

So try to test me
You can't possess me
There's nothing you cane really do
But let me
Be a slave to the wave

Dark sea waver
Blind from the sun
An if it goes too far
I got my own way of fun
Listen baby
I think you got to roll the dice
If this ain't hell
You 've been locked in paradise
Your time for love
Brings time for vice
Shiver betrays you can't go on with your lies
So try to test me
You can't possess me
There's nothing
You can reall do but let me
Be a slave to the wave

Holy War

War makes the killers
War makes the wise
War tells the parts babe
You gotta leave behind
Aint' no cure babe
Ain't no therapy at all
Ain't no drug babe
Take you higher
Than the Holy war

Engines start rolling
Witchhunters too
Thirst of the wicked ha!
Out for you
Ain't no cure babe
Ain't no fun to me at all
Ain't no high
All get ready for the holy war

War is the healer
Wave your bye-byes
This war 's a TV shame that leaves you paralysed
Ain no cure babe
Ain't no veterans back home
Ain't no drug babe
Take you higher
Than the holy war

How long has it been since you last had a war babe?
I mean this intuition's gonna haunt you like a death-row kiss
There's no fuckin' way to turn into a veteran, babe
There's no way to put the blame on me

Sweet Thing

Summerfreak / runaway
Takes a ride with Sharon Tate
She the sign on the wall
Makes you wanna play no more

Daylight / murder time
Undercover sun is high
I'm slipping into nothingness
In another form of bliss

Sweet thing / Blood Nirvana
Sweet thing / Love' s rising from the grave
Sweet thing / sweet injection
Love's rising from the grave

Evilspread over me
Evil circus down the street
Evilsweet / highkick
Evil eye makes me see

We' re all runaways
Blood Nirvana 's here to stay
Maybe I should sit and stare
Or light up a cigarette

Fleshdiver

Hangman's on the loose boy
Fleshdiver's his name
You hear the distant thunder
You see the holy haze

And you see the teenage wizards
Ride ride away
Like wakin' up from a painted dream
The world's still the same

Fleshdiver's rolling
Fleshdiver's back home
A present off the sidewalk
Merry Christmas, man
Hold it like something special
Then crush it in your fist
The streetbuzz there it goes again
It's an acid risk

Hey bay
Fleshdiver
Gonna drive you away
Hey babe
Fleshdiver
Go with you all the way

Lowdown highways, Chinese boulevards
Tell you danger stories that end really fast
This little dream ain't gonna be the last
An if you wake up better do it fast
Cos fleshdiver's rollin

Fleshdiver
Trapped by the touch of your skin
Fleshdiver
Hurricane in your pulsebeat
Fleshdiver
The dark white of the tide
Fleshdiver
The star that never lies

Hey baby
Fleshdiver's
Gonna drive you away
Hey babe
Fleshdiver
Go with you all the way

Lowdown highways, Chinese boulevards
Tell you danger stories that end really fast
This little dream ain't gonna be the last
An if you wake up better do it fast
Cos fleshdiver's rollin

Oh you tender trader
I'll be under your skin
I'll be your screamin' prince and you
Will be my fleshdive queen
