Verse 1
Ain't no dust
gonna cover
blue grass valleys
of Kentucky

Ain't no dust
gonna settle
on horses' backs
in Kentucky

Ain't no dust
gonna blur my vision
on Derby day
in Kentucky

Chorus
Ain't no dust in Kentucky
Ain't no dust
Gonna wreck my day
In Kentucky
Ain't no dust
Gonna cover my tracks
In Kentucky
There ain't no dust
Ain't no dust in Kentucky
Ain't no dust in Kentucky
Ain't no dust in Kentucky

Verse 2
Ain't no dust
gonna dirty my cash
buy dry bourbon
in Kentucky

Ain't no dust
on the banks
of river Mississippi
in Kentucky

Ain't no dust
gonna settle
my banjo strings
in Kentucky

Bridge
Gonna play blue grass music
Echo mountains
Of Kentucky
Gonna play blue grass music
Wearing out shoes
In Kentucky
Gonna play blue grass music
Drinking moonshine
In Kentucky

Chorus
Ain't no dust in Kentucky
Ain't no dust
Gonna wreck my day
In Kentucky
Ain't no dust
Gonna cover my tracks

Ain't No Dust

Verse 1
Penny is dead
her soul up Cypress Hill
pretty diet of nothing
she was Tribal Babe
in a crowded house of clouds
steady blue lines in the white room
of bloody valentine

Verse 2
Mama said life is loveless
it's a cruel, cold world
as above so below
Her confidence in tatters
ten hollow quests to damnation
smashing fan club magik
died woodface, all tragic

Pre-Chorus
Come as you are to Nirvana
Come as you are to Nirvana

Chorus
Tribal Babe
End of theory
Public enemy
Blind love
Arise, arise
Tribal Babe
In your Sound Garden
Primal Scream
Tribal Babe, Tribal Babe
1991, 1991, 1991

Verse 3
Tribal Babe, teenage temple dog
weaned on spiderland gish
Prince of her apocalypse
from amp of jam fudge
sailing sea of cheese
pearls intimidate diamonds
world a big Blur, 1991

Bridge
3 seconds of sunshine
10 years of downtime
Heaving wise
On Mama's words
You're no good for love
You're no good for love
You're no good for love

Pre-Chorus
Come as you are to Nirvana
Come as you are to Nirvana

Chorus
Tribal Babe
End of theory
Public enemy
Blind love
Arise, arise
Tribal Babe
In your Sound Garden
Primal Scream
Tribal Babe, Tribal Babe
1991, 1991, 1991

Tribal Babe, end of theory, primal scream

Verse 1
The hurt parade
marches past my window
below the second floor
echoes through the pavement
running late for work
feeding hollow occupation
destroying sky and earth

Chorus
Hurt parade past my window
We wear as a badge
Suffer this honour
To bitter end
Hurt parade
Hurt parade
Past my window
Hurt parade
Hurt parade
Hurt is made

Verse 2
Feeling proud achievement
status bank account
driving weekend pleasure
to dreams unpaid for
Thirst for rhythm
that keeps us going
through legion of meaning

Bridge
We're all in this experiment
No need to pretend
We all end in this Hurt parade
Every generation

Chorus
Hurt parade past my window
We wear as a badge
Suffer this honour
To bitter end
Hurt parade
Hurt parade
Past my window
Hurt parade
Hurt parade
Hurt is made

End
So where are you, my friend, in this Hurt parade?
Are you at the beginning, or are you at the end?

Hurt Parade

Intro
There's a bastard in all of us
if you push hard enough
wall to wall
face to face
face the wall
ace up sleeve
trigger in hand
defending left for right
ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Verse 1
Who's line, who's riff
Who thought of this?
If memory serves me well
I'm wrong every time
swayed to opposite side

Verse 2
Stalemate your hallmark
divided down drunk
enemies for recompense
Little battles, little world
those harmonies blurred

Pre-Chorus
Injustice of it all
Individual agenda
Injustice of it all
No greater than the whole

Chorus
Trojan red
Trojan red
Trojan red
Stake your hold
Right to rule
Trojan red
Trojan red
What you said
In your head
Trojan red

Verse 3
But just as sand shifts
when lightening strikes
and chaos rules the day
permanence of anything
not worth worshiping

Verse 4
Ice wet Freudian Slip
let's forget about this
we're not on the same page
passion was potent
now forgive and relent

Bridge
I'm breaking
You're breaking
We break away
Into useless pieces
Of useless melody
We break away
We break away

Pre-Chorus
Injustice of it all
Individual agenda
Injustice of it all
No greater than the whole

Chorus
Trojan red
Trojan red
Trojan red
Stake your hold
Right to rule
Trojan red

What you said
In your head
Trojan red

Verse 1
Spent delirium daydreams
out my window
mind falls light years
through galaxies lucid memories

Verse 2
Warm Mardi Gras rain
washes me in disbelief
irony, pain soul anthem
dashed on rocks craving oblivion

Chorus
Telepathic teardrops
Wrought iron sky
Fall, fall
Fall all over me
Telepathic teardrop
Fall all over me
All over me
Fall, fall

Verse 3
Tattoo indigo courage
blue Hyacinths over me
desperate streets search for you
day descends, night fades to residue

Bridge
Your eyes, tears fall
Soft rain, wet lips
Abyss, I slip
Telepathic
I memorize
I memorize your eyes
I memorize your eyes
I memorize your eyes

Chorus
Telepathic teardrop
Wrought iron sky
Fall, fall
Fall all over me
Telepathic teardrop
Fall all over me
All over me
Fall, fall

Telepathic Teardrop

Verse 1
Here we go
out on the rim
with no cause to
multiply inertia
what we really came for
is
instant gratification
what we really came for
what we really came for

Verse 2
Here we go
out on the street
with no idea
of what lies ahead
what we really came for
is
instant gratification
what we really came for
what we really came for

Chorus
Instant gratification
Our best friend
Beyond redemption
On the doorstop
Begging to come in
Ready to ignite
Fully awake
Ready to ignite
Instant gratification
Instant
Gratification

Verse 3
Here we go
out of our mind
with no cause to
blind fold desire
what we really came for
is
instant gratification
what we really came for
what we really came for

Chorus
Instant gratification
Our best friend
Beyond redemption
On the doorstep
Begging to come in
Ready to ignite
Fully awake

Verse 1
On this wet day
no sun shone on your door
paint wouldn't touch my page
as you lay on the floor

Verse 2
Illusion has wept years dry
can't possess a soul
that dictum says die
your time, you're whole

Chorus
Bound in chains of desire
Tight wire
No god in a needle
No blood from a stone
Burning bridges to ground
Bound
In chains of desire
Chains of desire
Chains of desire

Verse 3
Searched for grains of truth
in Houses of the Holy
sugar of our youth
for ashes fall slowly

Bridge
Why did life take you down?
Air drops to ground
Gravity commands
Where you are
Salt of sun
Dust of stars
Salt of sun
Dust of stars
All you are

Chorus
Bound in chains of desire
Tight wire
No god in a needle
No blood from a stone
Burning our bridges to ground
Bound
In chains of desire
Chains of desire
Chains of desire

Chains of Desire

Verse 1
Through the arms of fools, I've been
learnt lessons on my way
tumbled down so lonely
to become so blase

Verse 2
Stand in the rain with my beautiful man
we're in for a long haul
for him I'll do anything
anything at all

la, la, la, la-la-la
la, la, la, la-la-la

Chorus
My beautiful man
My beautiful man
All that I am
My beautiful man
My beautiful man

Verse 3
He knows when I'm going down
he turns me around
to face sun shine
his arms surround

la, la, la, la-la-la
la, la, la, la-la-la

Bridge
I'm yin and he's yang
Standing tall and strong
Day and night
Perfect match
We reinvent our world

Chorus
My beautiful man
My beautiful man
All that I am
My beautiful man
My beautiful man

End
For the miracle in him
Is a miracle for me
More than a whim
What can I say?
My beautiful man
My beautiful man
La, la, la, la-la-la
La, la, la, la-la-la
