Come on everybody Every gender and race Cleaning up blood Never leaving a trace I met her backstage in the hallway Exotic cars Themed bars Handing out cards at the end of the block Just a phone call from a bathroom stall Come on everybody Get into place Synchronize watches Get our stories straight She went crazy Totally crazy You cut it thin to win In the city of sin This is Las Vegas baby – this is Las Vegas They say what happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas Well I think that I will just stay in Vegas Welcome home, son. Welcome home. You cut it thin to win In the city of sin This is Las Vegas baby – this is Las Vegas

Your hair is longer now It's the main thing that reminds me I haven’t seen you in a while Can you tell me why Can you tell me why I always linger longer than I should? On the long rides home From who knows where? I want to break the silence in the air She slaps my hand away from the power switch She says – we don’t need the radio She says – we don’t need the radio So many little choices that I've made in my life Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side So I wouldn't change, a single mistake cause maybe if I might Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight This is pretty nice day for this time of the year I think I'll suck it up and finally go outside Did you get new glasses? Is that still your favorite jacket? Should I keep acting like I really give a damn? On the long rides home From who knows where? I want to break the silence in the air She slaps my hand away from the power switch She says – we don’t need the radio She says – we don’t need the radio So many little choices that I've made in my life Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side So wouldn't I change, a single mistake cause maybe if I might Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight Maybe if I might. So many steps along the way Have carried me here to be with you Could it all go away? Maybe if I... So many little choices that I've made in my life Have brought me to this moment; have brought you to my side So I wouldn't change, a single mistake cause maybe if I might Baby you wouldn't be with me tonight

You’re naked, and I’m falling I always pretended that you cared When you said it, you meant it And I’ll make you oh so beautiful You are my doll. The water is cold as ice and I hope you’ll like it I wash her hair and apply her make-up I brush it straight and pull it back I clip her nails and spin her around like a ballerina The rock, the terrace, to the window From the bedroom to the floor Black horn rimmed I'm standing above you I’m skewed and invincible Invisible behind these glasses You are my doll. You are my doll. You are my doll. You are my doll. You. You. I never want to get out of bed Do her hair just to mess it up The rock, the terrace, to the window From the bedroom to the floor I'm standing above you Black horn rimmed I’m skewed and invincible Invisible behind these glasses You're my ballerina. I never want to get out of bed Do her hair just to mess it up Paint her nails just to take it off Dress her up just to take her picture The rock, the terrace, to the window From the bedroom to the floor Black horn rimmed I'm standing above you I’m skewed and invincible Invisible behind these glasses She's such a gorgeous, delicate creature

He was pushing through the night in the pouring rain She was lying in the middle of the center lane He had trouble everywhere he went She was always trouble, everywhere she'd been He was stuck in a dead end job She had fucked everything in the whole damn town He was running from his life in a west coast town She was ready to flicker, flicker, fade away Fade away She used to say... I'm not afraid of anyone I'm not scared of what's to come She used to say...before she faded away He was flying down the highway at ninety five She was praying and saying her last goodbyes He was pounding coffee and rubbing his eyes She was crying out sweet baby Jesus and she watching her life pass before her eyes a thousand nights, a thousand men, a wasted life, comes to an end

I cant wait for the lightening, cause I know the thunder follows and it takes a rumble to cover up these thoughts down comes the rain and my thoughts are drowned out as my head hits the pillow For one moment in time. I will get some peace of mind. Oh God I love the lightening To cover up these thoughts I need a little disaster Oh God I love the lightening So won't you help me get get some peace of mind Oh God, please send an earthquake Cause I know the tidal wave follows And it will take a tsunami to wash away these sins Down comes the wave and my sentiments they follow For one moment in time. I will get some peace of mind Oh God I love the lightening To cover up these thoughts I need a little disaster

She's always coming home too late She smells of other men and gallons of Champagne Somebody tell me why I stay Those hands, those lips, those looks, that's it. I'm leaving today I'm getting out of this place Don't try to tell me I should stay I'm getting out of this place Those hands, those lips, those looks, that's it. I think I'll be staying out too late...tonight Let's see how she deals with all the pain and wondering That clock, that watch, tic toc, that's it I'm leaving today I'm getting out of this place Don't try to tell me I should stay I'm getting out of this place That car, that bridge, that lake, that's it I won't be coming home tonight She won't be coming home tonight She won't be coming home tonight She won't be coming home tonight She won't be coming home tonight

I'm all wrapped up in a nightmare She calls it a dream come true She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change But you can't grow out of who you are So I keep wasting time, cause I can't say how I feel So I keep wasting time, wasting time She said she will wait for me, as long I need but I don't need her, and I don't want her; and I can't tell her – cause it would kill her to know.... how I feel So I keep wasting time, cause I can't say, cause I can't say how I feel So I keep wasting time, wasting time, wasting time I screwed around a lot in college I just always thought that I would change I would wake up one day and I would say I'm done with all these one night stands and after hours hook ups I'll grow up and be a man She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change But you can't grow out of who you are She hopes, she prays, she thinks I'll change No, you can't grow out of who you are. Cause I can't say how I feel So I keep wasting time, waiting for her to heal.

I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll. I should have known that it was wrong She used me, abused me I always knew that she wouldn't love me back That girl named Rock 'N' Roll. I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll. Climb right in, grab on, she'll take your soul. I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll. She got everything you want She got everything you need She got every little thing you could ever think to ask for She'll make you want her She'll make you walk away from everything you've worked for She may be the Devil But while she's screaming “Oh God” She'll have you seeing stars and you'll tell the real world to fuck off and die. I fell in love with a girl named Rock N. Roll.

I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got pills. Got rope. Got gasoline How didn't you see this? I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got a jacket. Got a bullet. Got a head of steam. I am an animal I am the end of days I'm the judge, I'm the jury I make plans , I make enemies I turn friends, into memories You're all coming with me I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got pills. Got rope. Got gasoline How didn't you see this? I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got a jacket. Got a bullet. Got a head of steam. I aim to satisfy And I blaze a trail to truth I'm the judge, I'm the jury I make plans , I make enemies I turn friends, into memories I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got pills. Got rope. Got gasoline How didn't you see this? I've been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this? Got a jacket. Got a bullet. Got a head of steam. I’ve been kicking around the idea of checking out. How didn't you see this?

Not sorry about the way it started I'm just sorry about the way it ended She gots so many bills to pay Well, I got a lot of needs today Okay, I'm a skilled negotiator So slick, got the devil on retainer Not sorry about the way things started I'm just sorry about the way it ended You got your breakups You got your getting out hand Cutting lines on a brand new minivan Ain't worried about the way it all started I'm just a little worried about the way it all ended You got every little thing that ever pissed me off a little bit All wrapped up in a bow and sold in a handy little kit Ain’t worried about the way it all started I'm just a little worried about the way it all ended
