Sympathy For The Devil


Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long long year stolen many man's soul and faith
I was around when Jesus Christ had His moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed His fate
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the Tzar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank held a gen'rals rank when the blitzkrieg
raged and the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah
Ah what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah
I watched the glee while your kings and queens fought for
ten decades for the Gods they made
I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedy's?" when after all
it was you and me
Let me please intruduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadors who get killed before they reach Bombay
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name. Oh yeah
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game. Oh yeah
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal and all the sinners, Saints


as heads is tails, just call me Lucifer 'cause I'm in need
of some restraint
So if you meet me, have some courtesy have some sympathy
and some taste
Use all your well learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

FALL
Well let me tell you a story
About a girl and a boy
He fell in love for his best friend
When she's around, he feels nothing
but joy
But she was already broken, and it
made her blind
But she could never believe that
love would ever treat her right
But did you know that I love you? or
were you not aware?
You're the smile on my face
And I ain't going nowhere
I'm here to make you happy, i'm
here to see you smile
I've been wanting to tell you this for
a long while

this might do
Cause we got such an amazing
friendship and that you don't wanna
lose
Well I don't wanna lose it either
I don't think I can stay sitting around
while you're hurting babe
Come take my hand
Well did you know you're an angel?
who forgot how to fly
Did you know that it breaks my
heart everytime to see you cry
Cause I know that it pains if he's
gone everytime he move over on
the shoulder you crying
And I hope by the time that i'm done
with this song that I figure out

Who's gonna make you fall in love


I know you got your wall wrapped
on all the way around your heart
You're not gon' be scared at all, oh
my love
But you can't fly unless it lets ya,
You can't fly unless it lets ya, so fall

Who's gonna make you fall in love


I know you got your wall wrapped
on all the way around your heart
You're not gon' be scared at all, oh
my love
But you can't fly unless it lets ya,
You can't fly unless it lets ya, so fall

Well I can tell you're afraid of what

I will catch you if you fall

I will catch you if you fall


I will catch you if you fall
But if you spread your wings
You can fly away with me
But you can't fly unless it lets ya,
You can't fly unless it lets ya so fall

I know you got your wall wrapped


on all the way around your heart
You're not gon' be scared at all, oh
my love
But you can't fly unless it lets ya,
You can't fly unless it lets ya, so fall

Who's gonna make you fall in love


I know you got your wall wrapped
on all the way around your heart
You're not gon' be scared at all, oh
my love
But you can't fly unless it lets ya,
You can't fly unless it lets ya,

I will catch you if you fall


I will catch you if you fall
I will catch you if you fall
If you spread your wings
But you can't fly unless it lets ya
Let yourself fall
You can fly away with me

So fall in love

PHOTOGRAPH
Look at this photograph,
everytime I do it makes me laugh.
How did our eyes get so red,
and what the hell is on Joey's head.
And this is where I grew up,
I think the present owner fixed it up.
I never knew we ever went without,
the second florr was high for sneaking
out.
And this is where I went to school,
most of the time had better things to
do.
Criminal record says I broke in twice,
I must have done it half a dozen
times.
I wonder if its too late,
should I go back and try to graduate.
Life's better now than it was back
then,
if I was them I wouldn't let me in!
Oh oh oh... Oh God I!
(Chorus)
Every memory of lookin' out the back
door,
I had the photo album spread out on

my bedroom floor,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
Every memory of walkin' out the front
door,
I found the photo of the friend that I
was looking for,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
We used to listen to the radio,
and sing along to every song we'd
know.
We said someday we'd find out how it
feels,
to sing to more than just the steering
wheel.
Kim's the first girl I kissed,
I was so nervous that I nearly missed.
She's had a couple of kids since then,
I haven't seen her since god knows
when!
Oh oh oh... Oh God I!
(Chorus)
Every memory of lookin' out the back

door,
I had the photo album spread out on
my bedroom floor,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
Every memory of walkin' out the front
door,
I found the photo of the friend that I
was looking for,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
(Bridge)
I miss that town,
I can't believe it,
So hard to stay,
So hard to leave it.
If I could relive those days,
I know the one thing that would never

change.
(Chorus)
Every memory of lookin' out the back
door,
I had the photo album spread out on
my bedroom floor,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
Every memory of walkin' out the front
door,
I found the photo of the friend that I
was looking for,
It's hard to say it, time to say it,
Good-bye good-bye.
Look at this photograph,
everytime I do it makes me laugh.
Everytime I do it makes me...

Heal the World


There's a place in
your heart
And I know that it is
love
And this place could
be much
Brighter than
tomorrow
And if you really try
You'll find there's no
need to cry
In this place you'll
feel
There's no hurt or
sorrow
There are ways to get
there

If you care enough for


the living
Make a little space
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human
race
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living
Make it a better place
For you and for me

If you want to know


why
There's love that
cannot lie
Love is strong
It only cares of joyful
giving
If we try we shall see
In this bliss we cannot
feel
Fear of dread
We stop existing and
start living
The it feels that
always
Love's enough for us
growing

So make a better
world
Make a better place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human
race
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living
Make a better place
for you and for me
And the dream we
were conceived in
Will reveal a joyful
face
And the world we
once believed in
Will shine again in
grace
Then why do we keep
strangling life
Wound this earth,
crucify its soul
Though it's plain to
see
This world is heavenly
Be god's glow

We could fly so high


Let our spirits never
die
In my heart I feel you
are all my brothers
Create a world with
no fear
Together we cry
happy tears
See the nations turn
their swords into
plowshares
We could really get
there
If you cared enough
for the living
Make a little space
To make a better
place
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human
race
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living
Make a better place
for you and for me

Heal the world


Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human
race
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living
Make a better place
for you and for me
Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me
And the entire human
race
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living
Make a better place
for you and for me
There are people
dying
If you care enough for
the living

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THE


RAIN?
Someone told me long ago, theres a calm before the storm,
I know, its been comin for some time.

When its over, so they say, till rain a sunny day,


I know; shining down like water.
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down sunny day
Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know, been that way for all my time.
till forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,
I know, it cant stop, I wonder.
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down sunny day?
Yeah!
Someone told me long ago, theres a calm before the storm,
I know, been that way for all my time,
When its over, so they say, till rain a sunny day,
I know; shining down like water.
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down sunny day.

Just give me a
reason
Right from the start, you were a
thief

You stole my heart


And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed
them

Now, you've been talking in your


sleep
Oh oh, things you never say to me
Oh oh, tell me that you've had
enough
Of our love, our love
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken
Just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our
hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I'm sorry I don't understand where
All of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
-Oh, we had everythingYour head is running wild again
My dear, we still have everything
And it's all in your mind
-Yeah, but this is happeningYou've been having real bad dreams
Oh oh, used to lie so close to me
Oh oh, there's nothing more than
empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason


Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken just

bent
And we can learn to love again
I never stopped
It's still written in the scars on my
heart
You're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
Oh, tear ducts and rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust
But our love's enough
You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No, nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken just
bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our
hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second, we're not broken just
bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our
hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, that we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Miss You
I've been holding out so long
I've been sleeping all alone

Oh everybody waits so long

Lord I miss you

Oh baby why you wait so long

I've been hanging on the phone

Won't you come on! Come on!

I've been sleeping all alone

I've been walking in Central Park

I want to kiss you

Singing after dark


People think I'm crazy

Well, I've been haunted in my sleep

I've been stumbling on my feet

You've been starring in my dreams

Shuffling through the street

Lord I miss you

Asking people, "What's the matter


with you boy?"

I've been waiting in the hall


Been waiting on your call
When the phone rings
It's just some friends of mine that
say,

Sometimes I want to say to myself


Sometimes I say
I won't miss you child

"Hey, what's the matter man?

I guess I'm lying to myself

We're gonna come around at twelve

It's just you and no one else

With some Puerto Rican girls that


are just dyin' to meet you.

Lord I won't miss you child

We're gonna bring a case of wine


Hey, let's go mess and fool around
You know, like we used to"

You've been blotting out my mind


Fooling on my time
No, I won't miss you, baby, yeah
Lord, I miss you child

PARADISE CITY

CHORUS x2
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home (Oh, won't you
please take me home)
Just an urchin livin' under the street
I'm a hard case that's tough to beat
I'm your charity case
So by me somethin' to eat
I'll pay you at another time
Take it to the end of the line
Rags to riches
Or so they say
You gotta
Keep pushin' for the fortune and
fame
You know it's, it's all a gamble
When it's just a game
You treat it like a capitol crime
Everybody' doin' their time
CHORUS x2
Strapped in the chair of the city's
gas chamber
Why I'm here, I can't quite
remember
The surgoen general say's it's
hazardous to breathe
I'd have another cigarette
But I can't see
Tell me that you're gonna believe
CHORUS x2
So far away x4
Capitain America's been torn apart
Now he's a court jester
With a broken heart
He said turn me around
And take me back to the start
I must be losing my mind
"Are you blind?!"

I've seen it all a mllion times


CHORUS x4
I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me home
I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Take me home (Oh, won't you
please take me home)
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home
Take me down
Oh yeah
Beat me down
Oh, won't you please take me home
I want to see
Oh, look at me
Oh, won't you please take me home
I want to see
Boy, I'm gonna be mean
Oh, oh take me home
Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
Oh, won't you please take me home
I want to go
I want to know
Oh, won't you please take me
hooooooome
Baby

I Knew You Were Trouble


Once upon a time a few mistakes
ago
I was in your sights, you got me
alone
You found me, you found me, you
found me
I guess you didn't care, and I guess I
liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step
back
Without me, without me, without me
And he's long gone when he's next
to me
And I realize the blame is on me
'Cause I knew you were trouble
when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard
ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
No apologies. He'll never see you
cry,
Pretends he doesn't know that he's
the reason why.
You're drowning, you're drowning,
you're drowning.
Now I heard you moved on from
whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I'll
ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

He was long gone when he met me


And I realize the joke is on me,
yeah!
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard
ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
And the saddest fear comes
creeping in
That you never loved me or her, or
anyone, or anything, yeah
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
'Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in (you were right there, you
were right there)
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lying on the cold hard
ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you
walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

THE MESSAGE
It's like a jungle, sometimes it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
it's like a jungle, sometimes it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
broken glass everywhere
people pissing on the stairs, you
know they just don't care
i can't take the smell, i can't take
the noise
got no money to move out, i guess i
got no choice
rats in the front room, roaches in
the back
junkie's in the alley with a baseball
bat
i tried to get away, but i couldn't get
far
cause a man with the tow-truck
repossessed my car
Don't push me, cause i'm close to
the edge
i'm trying not to loose my head
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
Standing on the front stoop, hangin'
out the window
watching all the cars go by, roaring
as the breezes blow
crazy lady, livin' in a bag
eating out of garbage piles, used to
be a fag-hag

said she danced the tango, skipped


the light fandango
a zircon princess seems to have lost
her senses
down at the peepshow, watching all
the creeps
so she can tell the stories to the
girls back home
she went to the city and got social
security
she had to get a pimp, she couldn't
make it on her own
Don't push me, cause i'm close to
the edge
i'm trying not to loose my head
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
My brother's doing bad stole my
mother's t.v.
says she watches to much, is just
not healthy
all my children in the daytime,
dallas at night
can't even see the game or the
sugar ray fight
bill collectors they ring my phone
and scare my wife when i'm not
home
got a bum education, double-digit
inflation
can't take the train to the job,
there's a strike at the station
neon king kong standin' on my back
can't stop to turn around, broke my
sacroiliac
midrange, migrained, cancered

membrane
sometimes i think i'm going insane, i
swear i might hijack a plane!
Don't push me, cause i'm close to
the edge
i'm trying not to loose my head
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
My son said daddy i don't wanna go
to school
cause the teacher's a jerk, he must
think i'm a fool
and all the kids smoke reefer, i think
it'd be cheaper
if i just got a job, learned to be a
street sweeper
i dance to the beat, shuffle my feet
wear a shirt and tie and run with the
creeps
cause it's all about money, ain't a
damn thing funny
you got to have a car in this land of
milk and honey
they push that girl in front of a train
took her to a doctor, sowed the arm
on again
stabbed that man, right in his heart
gave him a transfer for a brand new
start
i can't walk through the park, cause
it's crazy after the dark
keep my hand on the gun, cause
they got me on the run
i feel like an outlaw, broke my last
glass jaw
hear them say you want some more,
livin' on a seasaw
Don't push me, cause i'm close to
the edge
i'm trying not to loose my head, say
what
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder

how i keep from going under


it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
a child is born, wih no state of mind
blind to the ways of mankind
god is smiling on you but hes
frowning too
cause only god knows what you go
through
you grow in the ghetto, living
second rate
and your eyes will sing a song of
deep hate
the places you play and where you
stay
looks like one great big alley way
you'll admire all the number book
takers;
thugs, pimps and pushers and the
big money makers
driving big cars, spending twenties
and tens
and you wanna grow up to be just
like them
smugglers, scrambles, burglars,
gamblers
pickpockets, peddlers and even panhandlers
you say i'm cool, i'm no fool
but then you wind up dropping out
of high school
now you're unemployed, or non-void
walking around like you're pretty
boy floyd
turned stickup kid, look what you
done did
got send up for a eight year bid
now your man hood is took and
you're a.
maytag
spend the next two years as an

undercover fag
being used and abused, and served
like hell
till one day you was find hung dead
in a cell
it was plain to see that your life was
lost
you was cold and your body swung
back and forth
but now your eyes sing the sad, sad
song
of how you lived so fast and died so
young
so
don't push me, cause i'm close to
the edge
i'm trying not to loose my head
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under
it's like a jungle sometimes, it
makes me wonder
how i keep from going under

LOSE YOURSELF

Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity


to seize everything you ever wanted
One moment
would you capture it or just let it slip?
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
there'ss vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
he's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
to drop bombs, but he keeps on forgettin
what he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
he opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
he's chokin, how everybody's jokin now
the clocks run out, times up over, bloah!
snap back to reality, oh there goes gravity
oh, there goes rabbit, he choked
hes so mad, but he wont give up that
is he? no
he wont have it , he knows his whole back citys ropes
it dont matter, hes dope
he knows that, but hes broke
hes so stacked that he knows
when he goes back to his mobile home, thats when its

back to the lab again yo


this whole rap shit
he better go capture this moment and hope it dont pass him
Hook:
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
you own it, you better never let it go
you only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
this opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
The souls escaping, through this hole that its gaping
this world is mine for the taking
make me king, as we move toward a, new world order
a normal life is borin, but superstardoms close to post mortar
it only grows harder, only grows hotter
he blows us all over these hoes is all on him
coast to coast shows, hes know as the globetrotter
lonely roads, god only knows
hes grown farther from home, hes no father
he goes home and barely knows his own daughter
but hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water
His bosses dont want him no mo, hes cold product
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
he nose dove and sold nada
so the soap opera is told and unfolds
i suppose its old potna, but the beat goes on
da da dum da dum da da
Hook
No more games, ima change what you call rage
tear this mothafuckin roof off like 2 dogs caged
i was playin in the beginnin, the mood all changed
i been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
but i kept rhymin and stepwritin the next cypher
best believe somebodys payin the pied piper
all the pain inside amplified by the fact
that i cant get by with my 9 to 5
and i cant provide the right type of life for my family
cuz man, these goddam food stamps dont buy diapers
and its no movie, theres no mekhi phifer, this is my life
and these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
tryin to feed and water my seed, plus
see dishonor caught up bein a father and a prima donna
baby mama drama screamin on and
too much for me to wanna
stay in one spot, another jam or not
has gotten me to the point, i'm like a snail
i've got to formulate a plot fore i end up in jail or shot
success is my only mothafuckin option, failures not
mom, i love you, but this trail has got to go
i cannot grow old in salems lot
so here i go is my shot.
feet fail me not cuz maybe the only opportunity that i got

You can do anything you set your mind to, man
