1. I WANNA BE SOMEBODY

(Lawless)

You say you don't wanna run and hide
A face that no-one knows
And everyone ya meet, you're gonna show
You're nobody's slave, nobody's chains are holdin' you
You hold your fist up high,
And rule the zoo

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin me
Cos I, I got the guts to be somebody
To cry out

I wanna be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

You say you don't wanna starve
Or take the table crumbs that fall
You don't wanna beg or plead at all
You don't want no nine to five
Your fingers to the bone
You don't want the rock piles' bloody stones

Oh, you just got to be
Up high where the whole world's watchin me
Cos I, I got the guts to be somebody
To cry out

I wanna be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

I want shiny cars and dirty money
Lotsa rock and roll
I will live in fame and die in flames
I'm NEVER gettin' old

I wanna be somebody,
Be somebody soon
I wanna be somebody
Be somebody too

I'm gonna be somebody,
I'm gonna be somebody




2. I L.O.V.E MACHINE

(Lawless)

Lady have you known me-
The perfect love machine,
I'm Virgo, My Leo's rising
Venus made me King
That trail of broken hearts
They all belong to me
Magic runs through my fingers-
One touch you'll see

L.O.V.E All I need's my love machine
L.O.V.E All I need's my love machine tonight

What can I do for you,
Am I your wildest dream
What do I move in you
Am I what I seem
My eyes they lie and you cry
Love brings you pain
And if you try to love me
You'll not feel the same

L.O.V.E All I need's my love machine
L.O.V.E All I need's my love machine tonight




3. THE FLAME

(Lawless, Holmes, J Marquez, J Marquez)

Give me a ticket on a jet airplane
I'm a-gonna take it
I live my life in the fast lane, the only way to make it
And I keep on going all night long
Cos that's the way I like it
And with what you got in the heat of the night
I know we got to try it

Until the flame burns out
Until the flame burns out

So turn it up, your radio,
Everybody shake it
I'm a hundred degrees, with wild fantasies
And I need someone to make it
Show me a place where love is sweet
I ain't gonna fake it
And hey little girl if you want my love
Then now's the time to take it

Before the flame burns out
Before the flame burns out
Before the flame burns out
Before the flame burns out

Turn up the flame your hips are fire
You're so hot I got to try ya
Show me the spot and I'll hit the mark
Baby I got the gasoline and you got the sparks

Before the flame burns out
Before the flame burns out
Until the flame burns out
Until the flame burns out




4. B.A.D

(Lawless)

You hear the cries of love - a sad tune
And feel the salt-lick stingin' love’s wound
Those tears that you cry leave a blood stain
They fall to the ground like a sweet rain
Cos bad girls they do

B.A.D.- Bad, make your mom and daddy sad
B.A.D.- Bad, It's the bloody fix you do
Oh, Look out

You see what's in you head: fantasy
And need, but you can't have B.A.D.
Call a spade a spade only if you want to
Cos by any other name it's taboo
Cos bad boys they do

B.A.D.- Bad, make your mom and daddy sad
B.A.D.- Bad, It's the bloody fix you do, the bloody fix you do

B.A.D.- Bad, make your mom and daddy sad
B.A.D.- Bad, gonna drive you raving mad
B.A.D.- Bad, make your mom and daddy sad
B.A.D.- Bad It's the bloody fix you do




5. SCHOOL DAZE

(Lawless)

My eyes are burning, bells are ringing in my ears
Alarm clocks wailing, class bells screaming, I can't hear
A text book mad-house, twelve years I'm here in a rage
A juveniles jail, And I'm here locked up in their cage

School Daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, my age is my crime
School daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, I'm attending hell high

A blackboard jungle toed the line the rulers made
A homework hell-house screams at me "MAKE THE GRADE!"
Tick tock, three o'clock, I'm sittin here and counting off the days
A firebell is ringin' hell and I'd sure love to see it blaze
BURN IT DOWN!!

School Daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, my age is my crime
School daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, I'm attending hell high

I pledge no allegiance and I bet
They're gonna drive me crazy yet
Nobody here is understanding me
I pledge no allegiance and I bet
They're gonna drive me crazy yet
I'm dying here and trying to get free

School Daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, my age is my crime
School daze, school daze, I'm here doin' time
School daze, school daze, I'm attending hell high




6. HELLION

(Lawless)

Hell-hound, hot leather on your legs
That smokin powder keg
You're riding on is hell-bound
And you're the one they claim
It's going down in flames
You're riding Hades' rails (Hellion)

Hellion - The devil's Hellion child
Hellion - will never have to die

Well child, you're sweatin' and you're stoned
That alcohol you downed
Makes you crazy-
All night, you damn the hurt and pain
And drink the devils rain
It's screaming out your name

Hellion - The devil's Hellion child
Hellion - will never have to die

The Gods you worship are steel
At the altar of rock 'n' roll you kneel
A slave who forever rocks
Is chained in the devil's locks
And slain by the bloody axe I wail

Hellion - The devil's Hellion child
Hellion - will never have to die




7. SLEEPING IN THE FIRE

(Lawless)

Touch, touch in the flame's desire
Feeling the pain's denial,
And your finger's in the fire.
Look, look in the candle light
See in the flame of life
And my spell our lie

Taste the love, The lucifer's magic that makes you numb
The passion and all the pain are one
You're sleeping in the fire
Taste the love, the lucifer's magic that makes you numb
You feel what it does and you're drunk on love
You're sleeping in the fire

I gaze as the flame and fire burn
And cry out the name of which I yearn

Taste the love, The lucifer's magic that makes you numb
The passion and all the pain are one
You're sleeping in the fire
Taste the love, the lucifer's magic that makes you numb
You feel what it does and you're drunk on love
You're sleeping in the fire




2. ON YOUR KNEES

(Lawless)

Dancing with danger right until dawn
The sin that you buy and you sell
Mom and daddy said "the life that you've led,
You'll party you're way straight to hell"

On Your knees,
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
And I need you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees

Playing with fire, lust in you burns
Reflecting the flames in your eyes
Sex and pain insane, they're really the same
Misused and confused, bound and tied

On Your knees,
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
And I need you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees

On your knees that's where you all shall be
Well I bid you come taste your first deadly sin
Riding the wild wind and the door to submission
Will open and you shall fall in

On Your knees,
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
And I need you on your knees
You shall be on your knees
Cos I want you on your knees
You shall be on your knees

On your knees
On your knees
On your knees
On your knees

(what in the fuck was that?)




9. TORMENTOR

(Lawless, Holmes)

I'm a liar and I'm a cheat
I have no morals and I'm a thief
Pillage and plunder, curse those who enter
I am a killer and Tormentor

Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)

I'm a sinner, I kiss the breast
I am a sadist that whips the flesh
I'll take the women, curse those who enter
I am a killer and Tormentor

Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)

I am the lord of liars
And I command the force of Fire

Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)
Tormentor (tormentor)

Note:
in the Dungeonmaster version, the lyrics are slightly different.
The third and fourth lines of the second verse go

I rape the women, take those who enter
Guilty, molested, and tormentor



10. THE TORTURE NEVER STOPS

(Lawless)

Bang, bang, banging in your head
You're banging on the walls
Hang, hang, hanging up youself
You're hanging by your balls

And you, you die but no-one hears or cares
And hope's the rope that keeps you tied in knots

The torture never stops
The torture never stops

Suck, suck, sucking at your life
Your master sucks the juice
Shoot, shoot, shooting at you
And the hangman's noose is loose

And you, you cry but no-one hears or cares
And hope's the rope that keeps you tied in knots

The torture never stops
The torture never stops

Your masters beat you bloody
Still you're running back for more
And every day, you lay down and play the whore

The torture never stops
The torture never stops
