Steelheart - Sticky Side Up Lyrics

Standin' on the front line, a bullet in my head
Run a bad luck highway mile, ridin' the rails naked and dead
Sins of the flesh, seasons of the witch
Ain't nobody gonna scratch my itch
Spin another lie and tell me it's alright, yeah it's alright
It's ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

[Chorus]
Smooth side down, sticky side up
Watch me drown in your lovin' cup
Nail me to the floor, roll me in the rug
Smooth side down, sticky sticky side up

Scratchin' on the back door, ringin' in my ears
Hang dog on a ball and chain, gettin' high on the Devil's tears

Give me a shovel, I'll dig my own grave
Rooster go pimpin' for some other slave
The knife's in my back, smile and tell me it's alright, yeah it's alright
It's ow, ow, ow, ow, ow!

[Chorus]

Smooth side down, sticky side up
Watch me drown in your lovin' cup
Nail me to the floor, roll me in the rug
Smooth side down, sticky sticky - sticky sticky side

(Oh yeah) Smooth side down (oh smooth it up, baby, that's right)

[Chorus: x2]

Smooth side down, sticky sticky, sticky sticky, sticky sticky side up!
