What Gets You Off?

Original and similar lyrics
It was last night In an empty warehouse party, oh And there in the blacklight I could see the tatoos glowing on your body Well, oh, oh oh oh Oh, oh oh oh She says to meet her there Beside the power station, oh And she said she'd let me stare If the chemicals don't keep her waiting Well, oh, oh oh Whoa, oh oh oh Well I'm always coming down from the night before where I left you I'm always coming down, but I'm doing my best to get caught I'm always coming down from the night before when I met you To hear what gets you off What gets you off What gets you off Red fingernail polish Peeling like a sunburn, oh That black designer dress Looks better underneath our feet Your knees on the dirt Oh, oh oh oh Oh, oh oh oh oh Well I'm always coming down from the night before where I left you I'm always coming down, but I'm doing my best to get caught I'm always coming down from the night before when I bet you To hear what gets you off What gets you off What gets you off Yeah, what gets you off Oh oh oh, yeah... Well I'm always coming down from the night before where I left you I'm always coming down, but I'm doing my best to get caught We're always coming down from the night before when I bet you To hear what gets you off What gets you off What gets you off Oh oh oh... What gets you off...

If You See Her, Say Hello

JEFF BUCKLEY "The Trash Can Tape"
If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier She left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so. We had a falling-out, like lovers often will And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart. If you get close to her, kiss her once for me I always have respected her for busting out and gettin' free Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won't stand in the way Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay. I see a lot of people as I make the rounds And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft. Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time.

Supersystem

The Feelers
Make believe that it's Sunday again The whole world will have to wake up And you feel like your coming to an end And you don't have to fake it I can't believe what you want me to hear You don't get it, you don't get it You think you know when it's's coming to an end But I just don't feel it And it makes no sense, if I can't get away And it makes no difference, at least well not today And I feel the same, as when we first ran away And it makes no sense, if I can't get away Oh get away With your radars and your supersystem You think you'll never get caught With your lies and suffer sentence It doesn't matter if you get caught Just pray you never get caught I can't believe what I want you to hear I don't get it, I don't get You think you know when I lie to your friends You don't get it, you don't get it

Ghetto

JOAN BAEZ "One Day At A Time"
If you ever lived in a ghetto And maybe at the close of your day On your front porch you hear the sound of a jukebox From the neighbourhood cafe Well in the noon you may hear the neighbours fussing When a kid breaks a window pane In the night, in the night you may be wakened By the outbound train Well the rich folks they own the big city And they down us who living the way we do But when you're born a child of a poor man You know the ghetto is the only place for you Well if there's such a thing as revolution And there will be if we rise to the call When we build we build we build we build the new Jerusalem There won't be no more ghetto, ghetto at all No there won't be no more ghetto, ghetto at all

I Wander

JONNY LANG
I wonder about her I wonder where she went from her Still wonder about her But nothing ‘s coming in too clear Since she left me all my days go bye like this Well I'm thinking about her and all the things she used to say Still thinking about her Well something is getting in the way I remember when she told me, She would get up and leave me some day Ah yeah When I travel in circle thru the city, just waiting for the lights to change But right about when the light hit me, moonlight gets me feeling kind a crazy. Ah Yeah I wonder about her does she still wear that same old ring No ,I still wonder about her and I know it ain't no big thing Well she left me all alone now And I ‘m waiting for my phone to ring I have been dreaming about her I guess I never really knew that living without her was more than I could ever do caus' she ain't coming back no she ain't coming back no she ain't coming back because there is nothing to come back to

Return Of The Spiders

ALICE COOPER "Easy Action"
Well, stop.. look, and listen There are ants that are gathered here With my hands raised to speak But you all won't hear No, you all won't hear We all won't hear Let me in your living door Let me in, knock knock I said, is there Well, it's me they're reaching in And I'm coming after you I'm coming after you Coming after you Well, I'm tired - yes I'm weary from my long journey But I'm not yet all ready to rest For you can come along with me We go searching for rest, yes Come on and search with me Oh, search with me Woah, search with me Come on and search with me Wo-woah, come on and search with me Come on and search with me... (Right, you wanna hear play-back? Yeah. Alright.)
