Why Am I Here
(Blackie Lawless)

Oh tell me my lord
Why am i here?
Lost in all our pain and sorrow
Are we to live in pain and fear?
Oh, tell me my Lord
Why am I here?

Wishing Well
(Blackie Lawless)

[Jesse to self]

Thereís place where Iím
Oh Ė with sorrowed lives
And all the souls
Oh Ė Theyíre wishing they could die

Take me down
And drown this (the) orphan forever Ė ya know I do
Wish away the pain
And wash away my life
Find me down inside a shallow pool
Down the wishing well
No more bleeding
No more screaming tonight.

Wash away my pain
Oh Ė in the well of sighs
For I have no face Ė oh
Abandoned for all, for all time

[Jesse thinking of his mother]

Why, why am I nothing
Oh mamma why, whyíd you leave me
A throw away for life

Oh Ė oh why, why am I nothing
Oh and mamma why
Can you feel me here
Oh God I wanna die

Sister Sadie (And The Black Habbits)
(Blackie Lawless)

[Sister Sadie to Jesse]

You, I want your love
You, I bury the secrets
So no one sees

You Iím hiding the truth
So no one sees
Disguising the truth
So no one believes
Strip off your things
And bow to your queen
And cleanse the sins of your life
Get on your knees
Gonna beg and bleed
No one hears you - you belong to me
Reaper of your sorrowís seed
Black habits tonight
Your only sin
Was coming into Sadieís life

[Jesse to Sister Sadie]

Sister of No Mercy please
Iím praying to die
Can I cleanse my orphan sins
And save my soul tonight Ė when

I donít believe
I donít believe
In a God of love
I wonít deceive
I donít conceive at all

I donít believe
I donít believe
In a God above
I donít believe
I wonít receive no more

[Sister Sadie to Jesse]

What I do to thee
Is what was done to me
Sins of (the) fathers lives
And do you feel
Thereís a God for real
Ooh your only God is me

[Jesse to Sister Sadie]

Reaper of my sorrowís seed
And my screams in the night
My only sin was coming into Sadieís life
Sister of No Mercy please
Iím praying to die
Can I cleanse my orphan sins
And save my soul tonight Ė when
Iím fucked for life
Blind and tied nobody sees
Iím fucked for life
Iím the child no mother needs
Iím fucked for life
The cries of night for all Sadieís needs
Iím fucked for life
Iím the child nobody sees

[Sister Sadie to Jesse]

Oh you, Iíll make you think youíre dying
This room cleansing time again
Iíll take you to this House of Sorrows
Iíll break your Neon Heart of sin

[Jesse to Sister Sadie]

Oh are you mad
Iím going fast
Habits in black
No coming back
No Mercy me
This Hell is real
Why me ya see
Sheís here killing me

The Red Room Of The Rising Sun
(Blackie Lawless)

[Billy to Jesse]

We are the lost of timeless
Hazes never found
We walk the new rays of the rising sun
In hereís a heaven where no pain is found

[Jesse to Billy]

Take away the pain of life for me
Take me where Iím numb
Take me tripping to the light I see
With magic colors of the rising sun

[Billy to Jesse]

In here are the doors of blindness
Trails of rainbows round
Lost asylums of forgotten sons
Will you rise up will you touch your God.
The skyís slip into the rising seas
And drown your Neon One
Come touch the faces of the Gods you seek
In the Red Room of the Rising Sun

[Jesse to Billy]

Is there love to save me
Or just illusion
Is there none to claim me
Just delusion

[Billy to Jesse]

Open the doors to your mind
And hide in your dreams
The Red Room is laughing
The Red Sun is happy
Close the holes here inside
Donít believe all you think
The Red Room is crying
The Red Sun is rising
Hold on, hold on
Touch the faces of God and roll on
Into the Red Room
And free your Neon One

Hold on, can you roll on
Fly the hazeís along
Into the Rising Sun
And feel your Neon love
Hold on, can you hold on
Oh Ė can you feel it shining
See it rising with the sun
Hold on, can you hold on
Oh Ė can you feel shining
See it rising
With this love

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What I'll Never Find
(Blackie Lawless)

[Billy to Jesse]

Time to go away
Down a road I cannot hide
Will I have no name
For destinyís I cannot find
Will I wander alone
Foreverís lonely road of time
Am I looking for what
Iíll never find

Did you call my name
I will be leaving from this dream
Can you feel the pain
Slowly leaving me
Will you hold my hand
And ease me to the other side
Am I looking for what
Iíll never find

Can you hear me
Can you hear me in the night
Will you feel me
If you leave me will I cry?
Can you hear me
Can you feel me say goodbye

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Someone To Love Me
(Blackie Lawless)

Oh All I need was someone to love me
Oh, all I needed was one
There's no one who cares
Oh All I need was someone to love me
Oh, all I needed was one
There's no one who cares

XTC Riders
(Blackie Lawless)

[Judah to Jesse]

Youíll be so far out of control
Youíll be out of your mind
Youíll feel nothing, itís taking a hold of you
Wonít ya leave all your pain behind
Youíll be leaving all Ė all your pain behind

XTC Riders , Riders out of control
Get you higher, higher
Oh yeah,
Ainít never going home
Oh, just let it ride

Youíll feel my X is taking control
Youíll be numb and blind

To the Neon God thatís in your mind

Dresses all in black
Are you the chosen one
Iíll get you higher, no turning back
My Neon Son

The Running Man
(Blackie Lawless)

[Judah to Jesse]

Do you know the ones you lost
You know, the ones you saved

[Jesse to Judah]

Look in my eye cause somehow you
You donít realize what I made

[Judah to Jesse]

You canít run away from me
Donít deny your blind believers
And hide your Devilís keeper

[Jesse to Judah]

Take your love away from me
Cause I will blind your heathen reason
And ride us on your broken wings for love

[Judah to Jesse]

True we are disciples lost
You know the promise you made
Look in my eyes and tell me why
You realize the price that youíll pay?

[Jesse]

# 9, # 9, # 9
Iím still inside of
The 9 asylums
Am I Messiah?

[Judah to Jesse]

Youíre the only God they know
What are you running from
Wasnít this enough
Arenít you satisfied?
Theyíre all at your feet
The Lord to sheep
Oh, are you sanctified?

Raging Storm
(Blackie Lawless)

[Jesse to God]

A storm is come
One war of sun and rain Ė within me
A raging storm
Lost crossroads thundering Ė in the wind
Dark and son
Whoís the only one
To lay claim of me
Altars of store
Righteous temptations
Here at my feet

Give me love
To rage in me can you see?
Only love
Is saving me
Give me love, oh love
That rage in me

It rages on
Of mourn and memories
In the wind
A warring storm
My soul is bargaining Ė in the end
Is there no sun?
With only love in vain Ė and itís pain
Hear me oh Lord
Cleanse me evermore with
Your blood of rain

Holy war for my soul
Scars of memories remain
Oh, tell me why am I here
Storms of crossroads are rage
