Lyrics

Can't Turn it Down

Written By: The Jagged

Excuse my indiscretion.
This decadent obsession.
Evokes no sense of doubt.
'Cause I can't turn it down!

Wild, shivering sensation.
more than oral stimulation.
Excites my throbbin' heart.
'Cause I Can't turn it down!

I Can't turn it down!
I Can't turn it down!
It's gonna drive me mad 'cause
I Can't turn it down!

Not what you think it is.
When I need a little fix.
One feline girl to dance.
When I Can't turn it down!

I Can't turn it down!
I Can't turn it down!
It's gonna drive me mad 'cause
I Can't turn it down, no !

Hell of a Bitch

Written By: The Jagged

She poured herself some coffee
as I lit my cigarette
that bitch just got me saying things
that I thought I would never say
If I could keep my mouth shut
if I could stay away
I wouldn't have to drink at night
trying to forget her name

I guess I could have foreseen it
I guess I should have known
Ever since I meet her its been the same old show
now stare at each other and
we swear no more goodbyes
but everything that comes from her
has been nothing but lies

She can give you one hell of a fight
She will give you one hell of a night
She can give you one hell of a fight

She's one hell of a bitch

Now the door is open and
I show her the way out
don't try to tease me honey
its not gonna work this time
Ive been down that road before
and I don't wanna be there again
but oh her taste is so damn sweet
and i guess I never learn

She can give you one hell of a fight
She will give you one hell of a night
She can give you one hell of a fight

She's one hell of a bitch

Two Trains

Written By: The Jagged

Two trains departed their stations
their destinations, remained unclear
I, who never believed in having any expectations
ended up getting caught in between them railroad tracks

vultures gather in circles flying, all around
obvious portent that I should stop trying, to win your hand
I keep drinkin' as the sun is sinkin', underground
Left for dead by you now I will be drifting to, another town

and anyone who witnessed
how our worlds collided,
had to have foreseen that it all would end
exactly how it got started.

and anyone who witnessed
how our worlds collided,
had to have foreseen that it all would end
exactly how it got started.

Ay Ay Ay Ay ,I Cant escape the train wreck !
Ay Ay Ay Ay ,I Cant escape the train wreck !

Mother said if your lost you should ask for directions
those conversations never get stuck in my head
Left my footprints at the brink of desolation.
Isolation, is now my favorite game.

vultures gather in circles flying, all around
obvious portent that I should stop trying to, win your hand
I keep drinkin' as the sun is sinkin', underground
Left for dead by you now I will be drifting to another town

and anyone who witnessed
how our worlds collided,
had to have foreseen that it all would end
exactly how it got started.

and anyone who witnessed
how our worlds collided,
had to have foreseen that it all would end
exactly how it got started.

Ay Ay Ay Ay ,I Cant escape the train wreck !
Ay Ay Ay Ay ,I Cant escape the train wreck !

Something Violent

Written By: The Jagged

Blouse N' boots
been soaked up in the rain
a pair of fools are gambling in bed
against the sun, whose selfish mornin' dries it all away

close your eyes and speed trough my freeway
chase the storms that are flooding the valley
I'm gonna walk all over your city
I'm gonna step all over your body

Fractured lips
lay on the battlefield
mouths of strangers are firing at will
two nude souls find shelter in between their sheets

fire up the voice of your engine
automatic pilot of a Learjet
I'm gonna cover you over in honey
I'm gonna let you spend all my money

you and I are something violent
you and I are something violent
meant to be way more than an accident
you and I are something violent

you and I are something violent
honey, you and I are something violent
meant to be way more than an accident
you and I are something violent

You know my weakness...
I can be defeated...
you can bring me down with a glance...
it's no surprise we are insatiable...
amateurs that act like professionals...

dust to dust
the damage has been done
once again we lie and call it love
weather clears but we are in for another storm

you and I are something violent
you and I are something violent
meant to be way more than an accident
you and I are something violent

you and I are something violent
honey, you and I are something violent
meant to be way more than an accident
you and I are something violent

Fish Market

Written By: The Jagged

Good man, spare a cigarette for me.
'cause I cannot afford one anymore.
no, I cannot afford one anymore.

Good times, I've seen more than my share from here.
but I have never had one of my own.
No, I cannot recall having one of my own.

The fish market can give you
Everything you need
when the wind ain't blowin'
and you've lost the will to live.
Let it sink to the bottom and
have the catch of the day.
when you cant keep out of trouble
and you cant seem to outrun your fate.

I've song, the songs of explorers out at sea.
whose dreams are drowned by the waves crashing the shores.
whose dreams are drowned by the waves crashing the shores.

My ship, got stranded by the gates of hell.
but i swear I will bring it back to port.
I swear I'm gonna sail it back to its home.

The fish market can give you
Everything you need
when the wind ain't blowin'
and you've lost the will to live.
Let it sink to the bottom and
have the catch of the day.
when you cant keep out of trouble
and you cant seem to outrun your fate.

Give me your wicked, send me your strong
tell me just how fast it is you wanna go.

I'm captain
of this buoyant wooden twist of fate.
leaded by my skills but not my choice
leaded by my skills but not my choice.

Good man, you'll never see a frown up in my face.
the years have taught me to live in the eye of the storm.
the years have taught me to live in the eye of the storm.

The fish market can give you
Everything you need
when the wind ain't blowin'
and you've lost the will to live.
Let it sink to the bottom and
have the catch of the day.
when you cant keep out of trouble
and you cant seem to outrun your fate.

Up your Nose

Written By: The Jagged

Trough my window I saw the sky
and I remembered how it felt.
yes I know I shouldn't have
but I had no choice cause I was scared.

This is not a game
not a game anymore
the wind has shifted, the water rose
better take care of what you're putting up your nose

Next to me one mirror screamed
Quiet reflections of all I've seen
I took a look at myself and lied.
I don't need nobody else advice.

This is not a game
not a game anymore
the wind has shifted, the water rose
better take care of what you're putting up your nose

The record has been skipping...
Everything is moving so slow...
If you knew the way that I'm living...
would you find me and take me home?

This is not a game
not a game anymore
the wind has shifted, the water rose
better take care of what you're putting up your nose
