Iggy Pop : Post-Pop Depression

1. BREAK INTO YOUR HEARTH

I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna crawl under your skin
I'm gonna break into your heart
And follow till I see where you begin

Time's so tight, it's closing in
Forty more hours to go
When the tumblers spin, I'm getting in
Gonna be time to blow

I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna crawl under your skin
I'm gonna break into your heart
And follow till I see where you begin

Hooks go deep, but it's make believe
But you're never gonna grow
Your heart is buried underneath
Mountains capped with snow

I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna crawl under your skin
I'm gonna break into your heart
And follow till I see where you begin

Break them all
Take them all
Fake them all
Steal them all
Fail them all
Touch them all
Break them all
Break them all

I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna break into your heart
Till it all comes crashing down

I'm gonna break into your heart
I'm gonna crawl under your skin
I'm gonna break into your heart
And follow till I get under your skin
And the wall comes tumbling down
And you finally let me in
I'll break into your

2. GARDENIA

Gardenia
Where are you?
Black goddess in a shabby raincoat
Where are you tonight?
Cheap purple baby-doll dress
A gardenia in your hair
Much taller and stronger than me
A forbidden dream, a dream, a dream

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Gardenia
Where are you, tonight?
The streets were your home
Now where do you roam?
Your hourglass ass
And your powerful back
Your slant devil eyes
And the ditch on your spine
Deep ass, deep ass

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

We lay in the darkness
Then she turned the lights on
I saw a dangerous habit
When she turned the lights on
There's always a catch
In the darkness when you
When you turn the lights on
There's always a catch
Oh well, oh well, oh well, oh well

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

Alone in the cheapo motel
By the highway to hell
America's greatest living poet
Was ogling you all night
You should be wearing the finest gown
But here you are now
Gas, food, lodging, poverty, misery
And gardenia
You could be burned at the stake
For all your mistakes, mistakes, mistakes

All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight
All I wanna do is tell Gardenia
What to do tonight

3. AMERICAN VALHALLA

I have no plans
I have no debts
The mind is not the carefree set
I'm looking for American Valhalla
So if it passes by
Give me a holler, please
I've shot my gun
I've used my knife
This hasn't been an easy life
I'm hoping for American Valhalla
But if I have outlived my use
Please drink my juice
Innocence
It's so hard to figure it out
Innocence
It's so hard to figure it out
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
It's so hard to figure it out
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
Where is American Valhalla?
Death is the pill that's tough to swallow
Is there anybody in there?
Who do I have to kill?
I'm not the man with everything
I've nothing, but my name
Lowly, lowly deeds
That no one sees
Lowly, lowly deeds
That no one sees
Where is American Valhalla
Death is the pill that's hard to swallow
Is anybody in there?
And can I bring a friend?
I'm not the man with everything
I've nothing, but my name
I've nothing, but my name
I've nothing, but my name
I've nothing, but my name
I've nothing, but my name

4. IN THE LOBBY

Breaking zee chain in the lobby
An ocean of bodies, and then there's me
And I hope I'm not losing my life tonight
And it's all about the hang
And it's all about the crowd that hangs
And it's all about the hook
Somebody is losing their life tonight
I followed my shadow and it lead me here
What is the problem if I disappear?
And I hope I'm not losing my life tonight
And it's all about the edge
And it's all about the fans and kids
And it's all about the sex
And it's all about guns

Yeah
I followed my shadow tonight
Out of the light
Yeah
I followed my shadow tonight
Out of the light

My shadow is walking in front of me
The longer the night, the shorter my leash
And it's a long, long night
And I hope I'm not losing my life tonight
And it's all about the kicks
And it's all about the dancing pricks
And it's all about the clowns
And it's all about guns

Yeah
I followed my shadow tonight
Out of the light
Yeah
I followed my shadow tonight
Out of the light

Out of the light
Get out of sight
Out of the light
Get out tonight
Out of the light
Get out of sight
Out of the light
Get out tonight

5. Sunday

This house is as slick as a senator’s statement
This job is a masquerade of recreation
Like a wreck, I’m sinking fast
[Chorus 1: Iggy Pop]
The key to everything, I crawl for Sunday
When I don’t have to move
Caught up in dreams untangled one day
Where I don’t have to prove
The days grow old and finally Sunday
A Sunday afternoon
I've got it all, but what's it for?
But getting some more
[Bridge 1: Josh Homme]
Always ready, always steady
Always ready, always steady
[Verse 2: Iggy Pop]
This street is as cold as a corporate lawsuit
A pride I can't catch telling me to wipe my boot
I’m a wreck, what did you expect?
[Chorus 2: Iggy Pop]
The key to everything, I crawl for Sunday
When I don’t have to move
Caught up in dreams untangled one day
Where I don’t have to prove
The days grow old and finally Sunday
A Sunday afternoon
I’ve got it all, and so what now?
[Bridge 2: Iggy Pop & [?]]
Do what they say, and you do what they say, go back
Do what they say, and you do what they say, go back
Do what they say, and you do what they say, go back
Do what they say
Do what they say, and do what they say, till Sunday
Until I’m black and blue
Oh, what can I do?
[Bridge 1: Josh Homme]
Always ready, always steady
Always ready, always steady
[Outro: Igg Pop & [?]]
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you
Got all I need and it is killing me and you

6. Vulture
[Intro: Josh Homme]
Okay, cool

[Verse 1: Iggy Pop]
Fat, black vulture
White head hung low
Chewin' dead meat
By the side of the road
His evil breath
Smells just like death
He takes no chances
He knows the dances

[Refrain: Iggy Pop]
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh

[Verse 2: Iggy Pop]
Vulture waiting
For a life to end
Proving the prophet
He's nobody's friend
If he gets near
Your bones he'll clear
He'll jump your bandwagon
'Til it's your corpse he's draggin'

[Refrain: Iggy Pop]
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture
Vulture

[Verse 3: Iggy Pop]
Fat, black vulture
Has got no shame
He'll tell a lie
Cheat, steal, and frame
His poison whiff
Will kill you stiff
This toxic executive
Wants your guts in his grip

[Refrain: Iggy Pop]
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture, ooh
Vulture
Vulture
Vulture
Vulture

[Outro: Iggy Pop]
Whoa
Oh...

7. German Days

Speak easy
Knock on the door
They'll check you out
Through a peep hole
There's a man
Who knows what you want
There's a girl
Who'll capture your flag

Glittering champagne on ice
Garish and overpriced
Champagne on ice
Garish, overpriced

Schnellimbiss
And Pope Benedict
Brilliant brains
And the end of pain
Germany
Must germinate
Germinate
In a German way

Garish and overpriced
Glittering champagne on ice
Berlin and Christ
Champagne on ice

German Days
German Days
German Days
German Days
German Days


8. Chocolate Drops

When your love of life is an empty beach
Don't cry (Don't cry)
When your enemy has you in his reach
Don't die (Don't die)
When is painful to express the things you feel
(Inside)
When it hurts to share because they're bare and real
(So real)
So when everyday is judgement day, I won't pray
(Don't pray)
When there's none to share that empty chair, well OK
(Okey)

When you get to the bottom
You're near the top
The shit turns into chocolate drops
When you get to the bottom
You're near the top
The shit turns into chocolate drops

Drops
So fly (So fly)
So fly (So fly)

When your love of life is an empty beach
(Don't cry)
When is painful to express the things you feel
(Inside)

When you get to the bottom
You're near the top
The shit turns into chocolate drops
When you get to the bottom
You're near the top
The shit turns into chocolate drops

There is nothing in the stars if you fail to move
There is nothing in the dark, it's just some old excuse
Hanging on, let it go!

9. Paraguay
Wild animals they do
Never wonder why
Just do what they goddamn do
(Yeah)

Wild animals they do
Never wonder why
Just do what they goddamn do

I'm goin' where sore losers go
To hide my face and spend my dough
Though it's a dream, it's not a lie
And I won't stop to say goodbye

Paraguay
Paraguay

See I just couldn't take no more
Of whippin' fools and keepin' score
I just thought "well, fuck it man"
I'm gonna pack my soul and scram

Paraguay
Paraguay

Out of the way I'll get away
Won't have to hear the things they say
Tamales and a bank account
Are all I need, so count me out

Paraguay
Paraguay

I'll have no fear
I'll know no fear
So far from here
I'll have no fear
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la
Tra-la-la-la

Wild animals they do
Never wonder why
Just do what they goddamn do

There's nothing awesome here
Not a damn thing
There's nothing new
Just a bunch of people scared
Everybody's fucking scared
Fear eats all the souls at once
I'm tired of it
And I dream about getting away
To a new life
Where there's not so much fucking knowledge
I don't want any of this information
I don't want YOU
No
Not anymore
I've had enough of you
Yeah, I'm talking to you
I'm gonna go to Paraguay
To live in a compound under the trees
With servants and bodyguards who love me
Free of criticism
Free of manners and mores
I wanna be your basic clod
Who made good
And went away while he could
To somewhere where people are still human beings
Where they have spirit
You take your motherfucking laptop
And just shove it into your goddamn foul mouth
And down your shit heel gizzard
You fucking phony two faced three timing piece of turd
And I hope you shit it out
With all the words in it
And I hope the security services read those words
And pick you up and flay you
For all your evil and poisonous intentions
Because I'm sick
And it's your fault
And I'm gonna go heal myself now
Yeah!
