SHANDI'S ADDICTION VERSION

You need my love baby, oh so bad
You're not the only one I've ever had
And if I say I wanna set you free

They call me (Dr. Love)
They call me Dr. Love (calling Dr. Love)
I've got the cure you're thinkin' of (calling Dr. Love)

Distorted Voice:
And even though I'm full of sin
In the end you'll let me in
You'll let me through, there's nothin' you can do
You need my lovin', don't you know it's true

So if you please get on your knees
There are no bills, there are no fees

The first step of the cure is a kiss

I've got the cure you're thinkin' of (calling Dr. Love) x4

cover: demon cleaner originally by kyuss

Performed live by Tool
Unreleased

I've got the demons within
I've got to brush them all away
I feel the demon's rage
I must clean them all away
Yeah, yeah...

Excite to scream them away
Cobwebs in the way
That magic cleaner oh
Shine his smile on me
Yeah, yeah...

I am the demon
Cleaner who saves the day
I get the backwall
And important they'll always stay
Yeah, yeah...

If only one thing that you know
Imposters from the show
They'll try to trick you into
Normal treatment
Oh don't you listen to them say
Shush them all away
I am the demon cleaner
Madman so
I am the freedom cleaner
Standing naked here to say
I'm the only way...

cover: muhammad my friend originally by tori amos

Performed live w/Maynard, 1/23/97
Available on Tori Amos Live From New York video
Originally from Tori Amos' album "Boys for Pele"

Muhammad my friend, it's time to tell the world
We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem
And on that fateful day when she was crucified
She wore Shiseido Red and we drank tea by her side

Sweet, sweet, sweet
Used to be so sweet to me, well

Muhammad my friend, I'm getting very scared
Teach me how to love my brothers who don't know the law
And what about the deal on the flying trapeze?
Got a peanut butter hand, but honey
do drop in at the Dew Drop Inn

Sweet, sweet, sweet
Between the boys and the bees

Sweet, sweet, sweet
Between the boys and the bees

And Moses I know, I know you've seen fire
But you've never seen fire until you've seen Pele blow
And I've never seen light, but I sure have seen gold
And Gladys save a place for me on your grapevine
till I get my own, honey, TV show

Ashre, ashre, ashre, ashre

And if I lose my Cracker Jacks at the tidal wave
I got a place in the Pope's, honey, rubber robe
Muhammad my friend, it's time to tell the world
We both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem

cover: passenger originally by the deftones

From the Deftones' album "White Pony"
(Maynard on additional vocals)

Chino: Here I lay
Maynard: Still I'm breathless
Chino: Just like always
Maynard: Still I want some more
Chino: Mirror's sideways
Maynard: Who cares what's behind
Chino: Just like always
Maynard: Still your passenger

Maynard: The chrome buttons buckled, leather surfaces
These and other lucky witnesses

Chino: Now to calm me
Maynard: This time won't you please

Chino: Drive faster!

Maynard: Roll the window down this cool night air is curious
Let the whole world look in, who cares who sees anything
I'm your passenger, I'm your passenger

Chino: Drop these down then put them on me
Nice cool seats there to cushion your needs
There to calm me
Maynard: take me around again
Chino: Don't pull over
Maynard: this time won't you please
Chino: Drive faster!

Maynard: Roll the window down this cool night air is curious
Let the whole world look in, who cares who sees, what's at night
Roll these misty windows down to catch my breath and then
Go and go and don't just drive me home and back again

Chino: Here I lay just like always

Maynard: Don't let me go, go
Take me to the end

cover: revolution

(commonly known as "Revolution")
Tool and Rage Against the Machine

Demo only
Unreleased

(Maynard:)
Living on the street shores
He didn't learn and wanted children
Said, "What is there left to stay alive for?"
He doesn't wanna see it...

(Maynard:)
He didn't wanna deal with it
Here they come, feelings that come as natural
Whatever left, he considered a loss, y'all
He doesn't wanna see it...

(Maynard:)
Running away, getting some kinda cure
"What is there left to keep him alive?" she said
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Give him your love, give him your love to save him

(Maynard:)
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Don't run away, give him your love to save him
Give him your love, give him your love to save him
Give him your love...

(Zach screaming 2x:)
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution
(Zach & Maynard screaming 2x:)
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution

(Zach:)
Lies, negative indoctrination of our good selves
Promote feelings of such hopelessness, powerlessness
Suicide or a slower death from addiction
seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

(Maynard:) Running...

(Zach:)
Lies, negative indoctrination of our good selves
Promote feelings of such hopelessness, powerlessness
Suicide or a slower death from addiction
seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

(Zach:)
Suicide seemed to be the only way to stop the pain
Suicide seemed to be the only way to stop the pain

(Zach screaming 2x:)
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution
(Zach & Maynard screaming 4x:)
You can kill the revolutionary
But you can't kill the revolution

cover: stranglehold originally by ted nugent

Performed live by Tool
Unreleased

Here I come again now, baby
Like a dog in heat
Tell it's me by the clamor now, baby
I like to tear up the street
And I been smokin' for so long
Ya know I'm here to stay
Got you in a stranglehold, baby
You best get outta the way

Road I cruise is a bitch now baby
But no, you can't turn me round
And if a house gets in my way, baby
Ya know I'm tearing it down
You ran the night that you left me
You put me in my place
I got you in a stranglehold, baby
Then I crushed your face.

Sometimes you wanna start higher
And sometimes you gotta start low
Some people think they gonna die someday
I got news, ya never got to go

C'mon, c'mon up...

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon baby
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon up
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon baby
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon

Road I cruise is a bitch now
Ya know ya can't turn me round
And if a house gets in my way
Ya know I'm burnin' it down
Ya ran the night that you left me
You put me in my place
I got you in a stranglehold, baby
Then I crushed your face.

cover: vacant originally by tapeworm

Vacant
by Tapeworm

Performed live by A Perfect Circle 1/31/00
Unreleased

Dead as dead can be
From what the doctor tells me
But I just can't believe him
prefer the optimistic (one?)
I'm sure of your ability
to become my perfect enemy

Wake up to face me
rise up and show me
someday I'll say you're vacant
and maybe you're better off this way

Leaning over you here
cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection
of what you could and might have been
It's your right and your ability
... My perfect enemy

Wake up (again to / why can't you) face me
rise up and show me
Someday I'll say you're vacant
and maybe you're better off this way

Maybe you're better off this way
People better off this way
You're better off this way
2x you're better off this
Maybe you're better off

Wake up (again to / why can't you) face me, come on and
Rise up, (why can't you / I tell you,) show me (show me)
Some day I'll say you're vacant
and maybe you're better off this way

Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear this
Go ahead and play dead
I know that you can hear me
3x Why can't you turn and face me
You fucking disappoint me

PS - Any help on these lyrics would be appreciated. Maynard's lines were hell to decipher, if I deciphered them at all that is. Plus me being Dutch doesn't help it much either. Fact is that some lines are just _way_ off. It's just an interpretation, which I approached as seriously as possible, of course. -- Barry
