Tracklist

Everything Zen

length: 4:39
mixer: Paul Palmer and David J. Holman
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale

There must be something we can eat
Maybe find another lover
Should I fly to Los Angeles
Find my asshole brother
Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Dave's on sale again
We kissy kiss in the rear view
We're so bored
You're to blame


Try to see it once my way
Everything zen
Everything zen
I don't think so


Raindogs howl for the century
A million dollars a stake
As you search for your demi-god
And you fake with a saint
There's no sex in your violence
There's no sex in your violence


Try to see it once my way
Everything zen
Everything zen
I don't think so


I don't believe that Elvis is dead
I don't believe that Elvis is dead
I don't believe that Elvis is, Elvis is


There's no sex in your violence

could not believe
came here today
helmet was on
you blew me away
house is on fire
we're naked again
maybe all we need
is water and friends

shackles and chains
won't keep me away
temple is you
and my brow is insane

i wanna be just like you
i wanna feel right through you
i wanna see just with you
i wanna live
i wanna die you

thinning ice
14 hairdryers
swimming to you
flame on earth desire
poor on the rise
rich on the fall
this cripple's with you
fame is a whore

i wanna fit inside you
i wanna room inside you
if money talks i wanna buy you
i wanna die
i wanna die
i wanna live you

i'm not scared of you
gave up on drugs
if i make it through
the jaws of love
jaws of love

you give

composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
wanted to buy you shiny red things
though i'd be with you untill the end

how did i know that i would be there
blow me away
see if i care
death of a future goodbye to my friends
wish i could see you all again
family hollow
family real
wish you were here to see haw i feel

kill a man
kill a girl
kill a man
kill a girl

jekyll in you
brings out the wired in me
i have no defence
i'm all that you see
the night is a bomb blast
the night is on fire
sing with me in the gasoline choir

and you say you want to cahnge our minds
i've paid for your belief with mine
of all the bravest stands in time

you stoop so low you'll never rise

Little Things

length: 4:25
mixer: David J. Holman and Paul Palmer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
I bleach the sky
Every night
I'm loaded on wrong
And further from right

I'm spinning around
Two howling moons
Cos there always there
Whatever I do

The river is loaded
I've been there today
Took it some questions
She does me again

And I'd die in your arms
If you were dead too
Here comes a lie
We will always be true

Going up
When coming down
Scratch away

It's the little things that kill
Tearing at my brains again
The little things that kill
The little things that kill

Bigger you give
Bigger you get
We're boss at denial
But best at forget
Cupboard is empty
We really need food
Summer is winter
And we always knew

Going up
When coming down
Scratch away

It's the little things that kill
Tearing at my brains again
It's the little things that kill
Tearing at my brains again
Oh that little, little, little, little, little, little, little, little

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yeah

I touch your mouth
My willy is food
Addicted to love
I'm addicted to fools shit
Yeah
I kill you once
I kill you again
We're starving and crude
Welcome my friends

To the little things that kill
Tearing at my brains again
It's the little things that kill
Tearing at my brains again
Oh that little, little, little, little, little, little, little, little

Here comes the new things
Here comes the new

Little things that kill.
Kill
Kill you stone dead
They'll kill you stone dead
They'll kill you stone dead
They'll kill you stone cold
Kill you stone cold
Dead

Comedown

length: 5:27
mixer: Alan Winstanley, Bush and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
Love and hate, get it wrong
She cut me right back down to size
Sleep the day, let it fade
Who was there to take your place
No one knows, never will
Mostly me, but mostly you
What do you say, do you do
When it all comes down

Cause I don't want to come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out

Cause I don't want to come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time

There is no blame only shame
When you beg you just complain
The more I come more I try
All police are paranoid
So am I, so's the future
So are you, be a creature
What do you say do you do when it all comes down
(rpt 1, 2, 1...)

Body

length: 5:43
mixer: Bush, Alan Winstanley and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
hush child - lay your sweet lips on me
this greed - bigger than you and me
will you come again
body
togue tied and a visceral third degree
feel warm - center of gravity
washus all away
body never lies
will you come again
will we stay friends
oh you paralyze
there are times when i wish
that i was you
thick skinned - cities you drive me through
better than me - you're a woman
seven days and my system is free again
we rise - lose it on oblivion
falling away - sorry for the way
your child is on fire
lick these my ruby lips
drop yuor protein pills
better just lose yourself
we kiss we kiss we kiss
pretty words could never say
you will come again

Machinehead

length: 4:17
mixer: Bush, Alan Winstanley and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
Breathe in breathe out
Tied to a wheel fingers got to feel
Bleeding through a tourniquet smile
I spin on a whim slide to the right
I felt you like electric light
For our love
For our fear
For our rise against the years and years and years

Chorus:
Got a machinehead better than the rest
Green to red machinehead
I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine

Deaf dumb and thirty
Starting to deserve this
Leaning on my conscience wall
Blood is like wine
Unconscious all the time
If I had it all again
I'd change it all

Repeat Chorus

Testosterone

length: 4:20
mixer: Bush, Alan Winstanley and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
i'm a man
i'm real proud of my manhood
i like to smoke
then thousand cigarillos
eight ball
i could climb any fountian
i never cry
i only bawl whan i'm losing
and i've never been wrong
never been wrong
i'm looking so good
looking so good

got a big gold gun
got a big gold bullet
and i guess you could say
i'm real full of it
i'm real full of it
i'm real straight
you wanna see my peccadillos
hot dog 7:30 every morning
and i'm big into war

i am a whore
i am a whore

got a big gold gun

i shave with gillette
shave with gillette
and i'm patting my back
patting my back
got a big gold bullet

Monkey

length: 4:01
mixer: Bush, Alan Winstanley and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
the mind is all we kiss everything
we say we love it's the skin we're in

you're a retrograde a vacancy
you're the one i love
the hate in me
lasy day on a darker breed
to have is not what it is made to be
you come alone to mass attack
sucking your tantric suck
fooling your one-eyed cat

we don't mind

we deviate our gravy brains
set em on fire they're all the same
i am lionface
nosancho panza
i'm riddled by you
i could've been better

i'm a monkey on a drip
sucker monkey on a drip

you take such pretty photos
when will you be worthy of your good side
where will you be
when the clouds break
and it all takes
just a little more than you have
we don't mind

Glycerine

length: 4:26
mixer: Alan Winstanley, Bush and Clive Langer
composer: Gavin Rossdale
lyricist: Gavin Rossdale
It must be your skin I'm sinkin' in
It must be for real, 'cause now I can feel
And I didn't mind; it's not my kind
It's not my time, to wonder why

Everything gone white, everything's grey
Now you're here, now you're away
I don't want this; remember that
I'll never forget, where you're at

Don't let the days go by
Glycerine, glycerine

I'm never alone; I'm alone all the time
Are you at one, or do you lie?
We live in a wheel, where everyone steals
But when we rise, it's like strawberry fields

If I treated you bad, you'd bruise my face
Couldn't love you more; you've got a beautiful taste

Don't let the days go by
Could have been easier on you
I couldn't change, though I wanted to
Should have been easier by three
Our old friend, fear, and you, and me

Glycerine, glycerine
Don't let the days go by, glycerine
Don't let the days go by
Ah, ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Glycerine, glycerine
Oh, glycerine, glycerine

Bad moon whine again
Bad moon whine again
As she falls around me

I needed you more, we wanted us less
Could not kiss, just regress
It might just be clear, simple, and plain
Well that's just fine; that's just one of my names

Don't let the days go by
Could have been easier on you, you, you
Glycerine, glycerine
Glycerine, glycerine

Alien

length: 6:04
Well the satellite comes and goes
We give each other all we know
In silence we still talk
By the light of the stereo waltz
And will you rain down
In your cinematic love truck
I want to hold you like nothing's going stop us
She come to take me away
Its all that I needed
I don't breathe another lover
Flicker on a TV screen
Everything's more than it seems
The mighty backward fall
Stare at the lights on the wall
I swear to this
She felt like velvet
Second blond child she meant it
She come to take me away
Its all that I needed
I don't breathe another lover
I'm an alien
You're an alien
It's a beautiful rain,
Beautiful rain
Beautiful rain
