WHAT YOU ARE IS WHAT YOU GET
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

No one's at your service
You've gotta help yourself
Trip it up and keep 'em down
We all got the same chance
The system of corruption
Will get it your way
No problem with the money
When you're not the one who pays

What you are is what you get
And you've got what you deserve
What the hell did you expect ?
What you are is what you get

We're all born equal
According to the rich
Dreams are not enough
If you're going for the top
What you are...

Doubt is the brother of shame
Yeah I did eat some of that pig
Go ahead smash and grab

Pull yourself together
Crawl back to the top
They're gonna kick you down again
And they're never gonna stop

What you are...


SCALES TO SKIN
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

You're so warm and I'm so cold
But heart to heart we're melting stone
They say our love is taboo
But we make love like flowers do
I don't mind if you're red or blue
I'm a reptile man I'm not like you

Heart to heart
Scales to skin...
My skin...

Warm affections in cold wars
Living on each side of the wall
They say our love will never last
Passion is a fuel burning fast

Heart to heart
Scales to skin...

Under the spell of eagerness
Between the sands of east and west
The torch of malice will it ever go out
We're the last of lovers in a world going down
I'm the candles on you're cake
And if you're Eva then I'm the snake

Heart to heart
Scales to skin...


WASTING TIME
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I saw you from behind took control over your mind
We travelled all around to the other side of town
There you bought a piece of soap and a picture of the pope
I think we had a lot of fun
Seen here from behind

I've been moving 'round in circles
Like a bird with just one wing

I've been wasting time
Wasting time
Wasting time
Wasting time oh yeah!

I followed you for hours wasted all my time
Counted all your footsteps but I don't remember why
I'm a fair minded soul so tired of being alone
How I wish I was that soap daily used by you

I've been moving 'round in circles
Like a bird with just one wing

I've been wasting time...

Huh!
Hey!

I've been moving...
I've been wasting time...


GAMMA GAMMA HEY!
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

We're in a movie and it's really bad
Inside the worst dream I've ever had
Back to the acting here we go again
Is this a comedy or tragedy ?
Is it fiction or reality ?
Back to the nightmare here we go again

This is a drive-in with a movie from hell
And if I ever get my hands on a 50 ton tank
I'd change the world

I see top men of the industry
Glorifying nuclear energy
Gamma Gamma here we go again

This is a drive-in with a movie from hell
And if I ever get my hands on a 50 ton tank
I'd change the world

I've been acting in this show too long
Now it's time to tell 'em right from wrong
So don't you tell me I've got nothing to do

This is a drive-in with a movie from hell
And if I ever get my hands on a 50 ton tank
I'd change the world


23 B.C.
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

If I was born two thousand years ago
then I could have a photograph of Jesus maybe his autograph too
Then I would be rich and famous and I could eat chocolate and mayonnaise all the time


PIGVALLEY BEACH
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I'm going to the sun gonna have a lot of fun
Got some money in my pocket and some music on the radio
Get ready to go!
I press the pedal to the metal and I'm welded to the wheel
Do you wanna come along baby ? I've got a week to kill
Down at Pigvalley beach
That's where I get my thrills and I get them cheap

Yeah I'll be down on the beach
Wild on the beach

There's a party in the valley lots of beer and rock'n'roll
All the surfers gonna be there and some honeys will be coming along
Let's get real gone!
We're gonna have a groovy time in the broiling summer sun
It's gonna be the best party that you ever heard about
We're gonna scream and shout
Go out of reach
We're gonna do it loud!

Yeah I'm down on the beach
Wild on the beach...
Sick city here I come

There was a party in the valley lots of beer and rock'n'roll
I had some money in my pocket and some music on the radio
And I got real gone!
Well I've been drinking for a week and I haven't been to sleep
My feet no longer seem to be connected to my head at all
My mind's a black hole
What about the big party did it happen at all ?

Down on the beach
Wild on the beach...
Sick city here I come...


BUGHOUSE BABY
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I wake up I get up I get the feeling that I'm all alone
At sea in a storm swimming like a stone
And I call for you I need something to ease my mind
Be mine just mine stay until the end of time

Bughouse baby
I wanna be drugged by you
Just you and nobody else but you

The way you move is making my mind confused
Do what you like I'd love to be your guinea-pig
Put a wire to my head connect me to the power plant
Fill me up give me pain gimme gimme shock treatment again

Bughouse baby
I wanna be drugged by you
Just you and nobody else but you

She's my baby and I love her
I will never have another
She electrifies my heart

I'm up I'm down I'm standing with my back to the wall
Repent reform give me anything at all
If I can't be with you pills will get me through
I'll stay 'til the day health do us apart

Bughouse baby
I wanna be drugged by you
Just you and nobody else but you...


SNAKEPIT REBEL
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

You say I'm going down but it sure looks like up to me
You say I'm getting sloppy but I tell you wait and see
You say I'm running out of limits and I'm slowing down too fast
But I got enough adrenalin to make you look like you're dead

Every morning when I rise you tell me what to do
You sold my favorite records and you burned my favorite clothes
My guitar is in the pawnshop 'cause it didn't get me far
It didn't get me money and it didn't make me a star

I'm a snakepit rebel
Don't you love me like that ?
Don't you feel happy when I'm coming your way ?

Today I woke up screaming and it was because of you
But I can tell you baby I've got better things to do
You hate the way I'm living and you say it all the time
But maybe my appearance is a blessing in disguise

I'm a snakepit rebel
Don't you love me like that ?
Don't you feel happy when I'm coming your way?...


IT'S SO COLD WITHOUT A GUN
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

Poor old Mr Willard got shot in the head
He didn't have the sense to stay home in bed
And later Mrs Willard got a dagger in her back
she went out shopping and she never came back

To go out there all alone you have to be brave these days

The world is going crazy the city's going wild
Better think about yourself if you wanna survive
Back in the good old days when people were proud
God guns and guts kept us alive

To go out there all alone you have to be brave these days

I need it and I mean it I can feel it
It's so cold
I can feel it and I mean it
It's so cold without a gunIf

I had a weapon just like in my dreams
Then I would be out there cleaning up the streets
I would be a hero a well known face
Getting rid of lowlife for inner peace and mental health

Didn't I tell you you have to be brave these days

I need it and I mean it I can feel it it's so cold
I can feel it and I mean it
It's so cold without a gun...

I'm not a hippie I wanna be safe
Love and understanding is out of date
I got myself a weapon I got myself a gun
It keeps my mind in shape and it gives me lots of fun

Didn't I tell you you have to be brave these days I need it...


WHAT FUCKING VIBRATIONS?
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

Instrumental


CRUSADE (GONNA START A FIRE)
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I'm a fallen angel with a loaded gun
A crusader from vengeance town
I'm a king a son of a king
A flame a son of a flame
My only wish my one desire
Is to see my name in fire
I'd blow my head for the sake of a wish
I'd laugh and watch me fall to bits

You will remember my name I'm gonna start a fire
You will remember my face I'm gonna start a fire

Tomorrow will be yesterday
And you're the one who has to pay
You did some things you will regret
I will forgive but not forget

I'm gonna get you for that I'm gonna start a fire
You will remember my name I'm gonna start a fire

I'm gonna get you for that I'm gonna start a fire
You will remember my name I'm gonna start a fire

The taste of shame is bitter sour
Ain't gonna let you make a fool out of me no more
Ooh I really get my kicks
On route 666

You will remember my name I'm gonna start a fire
I'm gonna get you for this I'm gonna start a fire
You will remember my face I'm gonna start a fire
I'm gonna get you for this I'm gonna start a fire
