Wild Wild West Album Lyrics

The Lyrics to the full Wild Wild West Album by the Escape Club

WILD WILD WEST

 forty seven dead beats

 living in a back street

 north east west south

 all in the same house

 sitting in a back room

 waiting for the big boom

 i’m in a bedroom

 waiting for my baby

she’s so mean

 but i don’t care

 i love her eyes

 and her wild wild hair

 dance to the beat

 that we like best

 heading for the nineties

 living in the Wild Wild West

 mandy’s in the back room

 handing out valium

 sheriff’s on the airwaves

 talking to the dj’s

 forty seven heart beats

 beating like a drum

 got to live it up, live it up

 ronnie’s got a new gun

she’s so mean

 but i don’t care

 i love her eyes

 and her wild wild hair

 dance to the beat

 that we like best

 heading for the nineties

 living in the Wild Wild West

 put your flags in the air

 and march them up and down

 you can live it up, live it up

 all over the town

 turn to the left

 turn to the right

 i don’t care as long as she comes tonight

she’s so mean

 but i don’t care

 i love her eyes

 and her wild wild hair

 dance to the beat

 that we like best

 heading for the nineties

 living in the Wild Wild West

 heading for the nineties

 living in the eighties

 screaming in a back room

 waiting or the big boom

 give me give me wild west

 give me give me safe sex

 give love, give me love

 give me time to live it up

JEALOUSY

 tonight i lie in bed

 dreams running round

 and around my head

 i feel so hot

 i feel so low

 seems those dreams

 won’t let me go

 won’t fade out

 won’t let me

 be so bad it’s killing me

 dragging me down

 my jealousy

 love is cruel and love is blind

 love is creeping from behind

 hot nights full of flames

 burning me up

 with her free fall games

 i feel so hot

 i feel so low

 when those memories

 won’t let me go

 won’t fade out

 won’t let me be

 so bad it’s killing me

 dragging me down

 my jealousy

SHAKE FOR THE SHEIK

 all around the big bad world

 on the CIA machine

 ten ten the president’s men

 in a big black limousine

 there’s and ICBM flying by

 get down and get to work

 high, high, we’re high and dry

 and we’re dancing in the dirt

i’m going to shake for the sheik

 ’till i feel my body break

 i’ve got reds in the bed

 hear them dancing in my head

 going to shake for the sheikh

 ’till i feel my body break

 i’ve got the blues – bad news

 my heart’s dropped down to my shoes

 yeah yeah

 from the holy temples of beirut

 to the factories of japan

 got to shine your shoes and hide your loot

 and get rich while you can

 there’s a red neck rapping at my door

 with bibles and grenades

 out fighting for a one man war

 in bad black mirror shades

i’m going to shake for the sheik

 ’till i feel my body break

 i’ve got reds in the bed

 hear them dancing in my head

 going to shake for the sheik

 ’till i feel my body break

 i’ve got the blues – bad news

 my heart’s dropped down to my shoes

 yeah yeah

 fat cats bit as rats

 jumping to the beat

 black black oil

 and crack

 in a big black limousine

 WALKING THROUGH WALLS

 some things will never change

 some things we’ll never know

 walking down the rocky road

 down and out

 with so far to go

 without you on my mind

 i’d never make it

 without the stars in the sky

 well love is love

 and one is one

 so i turn around

 to head for the sun

 and now i’m on my way

without any hope

 without you on my mind

 without any dreams

 without the stars in the sky

 without any love

 there’s nothing at all

 so i’m on my way home

 and i’m walking

 walking through walls

 some days just never end

 some days go too slow

 walking down the rocky road

 down and out

 with so far to go

 without you on my mind

 i’d never make it

 without the stars in the sky

 well love is love

 and i lost the fight

 so i turn around

 and head for the light

 and now i’m on my way

without any hope

 without you on my mind

 without any dreams

 without the stars in the sky

 without any love

 there’s nothing at all

 so i’m on my way home

 and i’m walking

 walking through walls

THE LONGEST DAY

 driving down the road

 in a foreign town

 and the streets and the sun

 making my head go round

 one eye in the mirror

 for the sleeping low

 and i’m driving down the road

 with my foot on the floor

 well it seems like i’ve

 been running for a week

 and i hardly know my name

 i can’t stand the heat

 running under cover

 i’m running alone

 and i’m running from the mess

 that i left at home

 so far away

 on the longest day

 so far, so far away

 on the longest day

 well i never never wanted

 to know your name

 and i never thought

 i’d see your face again

 but i’m looking for a bed

 or a place to sleep

 for a friend at the end

 of a dead end street

so far away

 on the longest day

 so far, so far away

 on the longest day

 i’ve been drinking on my own

 and sleeping in my car

 and i never knew the road

 could go so far

 all the way to heaven

 it’ll turn you cold

 if your dreams always die

 by the side of the road

 WHO DO YOU LOVE?

 got the whole of the world

 in your fingers

 got the whole of the world

 in your hands

 in your hands

 got the whole of my world

 in your hands

 it’s the same as they played

 in the movies

 it’s the same as you hide

 underground

 if you could be there

 you’d like to be there now

 now now now

tell me

 who do you love

 do you

 who do, do you love

 got the whole of the world

 in your fingers

 got the whole of the world

 on the run

 see the world

 through the sights

 of a gun

 now now now

 tell me

 who do you love

 do you

 who do, do you love

 where are the good guys

 where are they

 now now now

 where are the good guys

 waiting till the sun

 comes down

 where are the good guys

 where are they

 now now now

 now now now

tell me

 who do you love

 do you

 who do, do you love

STARING AT THE SUN

Sitting on a wire fence

Staring at the sun

Fighting don’t make no sense

Staring at the sun

We are only poor men

Nowhere left to run

We are only tall men

Staring at the sun

Walking through the dust again

Staring at the sun

Waiting to feel the rain

Staring at the sun

We are only poor men

Nowhere left to run

Warriors and tall men

Staring at the sun

Dancing for rain

Walking in the dust again

Dancing for rain again

Dancing for rain

Until the river runs again

Dancing for rain again

Looking out through iron bars

Staring at the sun

All eyes in Africa

Staring at the sun

We are only poor men

Nowhere left to run

Warriors and tall men

Staring at the sun

ONLY THE RAIN

It’s Midnight and the stars

And the bright lights

Shine onto my wall

And in a distant bar

Someone’s blowing

A blue serenade

But only  the rain

Will stay with me tonight

Only the rain

And only the rain

Will keep me company now

Since you went forever

I’ve been around

And around all the bad times

That you cried in my arms

That night you never came

Out on the old lines

Thought I heard your train

Now only the rain

Will play it’s song for me

Only the rain

And only the rain

Will keep me company now

Till I get my feet back

On the ground

GOODBYE JOEY RAE

Dream on little brother

Let your conscience sleep

Dream on now, this time the cut

Is far too deep

Dream away, run with the gun

But the war is over now

And they’re going to track you down

Goodbye Joey Rae,

I’m writing you this message in the rain

Goodbye Joey Rae

Though I know that we may

Never meet again

Memories of strange things

In a distant land

Innocents and children

Chase the yellow man

Far away

They sent us then

And you want to shoot them down

But the war is over now

Goodbye Joey Rae,

I’m writing you this message in the rain

Goodbye Joey Rae

Though I know that we may

Never meet again

Even now the memory

Is haunting me

You took a gun today

And set your madness free

I’m breathing on the window pane

And I’m writing in the rain

I won’t be coming back again

Goodbye Joey Rae,

I’m writing you this message in the rain

Goodbye Joey Rae

Though I know that we may

Never meet again

 WORKING FOR THE FAT MAN

 every day is monday

 in the house up on the hill

 they’re taking out the windows

 but we’re working up there still

 till the sun goes down

 you can hear the wheels go round

 and i’ll slave away

 saving all i can

 till then i’m working

 working for the fat man

 looking out the window

 as i dream my coloured dreams

 swaying to the rhythm

 of the sound of the machines

 till the sun goes down

 you can hear the wheels go round

 between you and me

 i’ve taken all i can

 but i’m still working

 working for the fat man

 i’m never going to work

 i’m never going to work for that man again

 but i’m stuck on the line

 stuck on the line till i’m sixty five

 hey look out jack

 going to break your back

 and your face will sag

 and your bones will crack

 till they send you down

 for a couple of years

 in shadow town

 living without breathing

 isn’t everything it seems

 swaying to the rhythm

 of the sound of the machines

 till the sun goes down

 you can hear the wheels go round

 and i’ll save away

 saving all i can

 till them i’m working

 for the fat man
