You may take my freedom You may take my gold You may strip me Of all I've ever owned You may leave me hungry You may leave me cold But you may never make me leave What I have found myself Rock and Roll on Bones X2 Them Bones Them rock and roll,rock and roll Rock and roll, rock and roll Rock and roll bones And I maybe queuing And I maybe fuming And I maybe late on a date That is 10 years old But I won't be wishing Cause I won't be missing I got these grooves cut down Deep down Rock and Roll on Bones X2 Them Bones Them rock and roll,rock and roll Rock and roll, rock and roll Rock and roll bones

She got a tattoo of a tiger on her chest It's paws and claws are on her left breast She got a ring through her nipple Got one through her nose She once was a designer of babies clothes Felicity, Felicity Don't you make a fool out of me Dating a traveller at age 13 One year later she was living the dream She learnt to breath fire Learnt to juggle flame She took a trip to orbit  Just to learn her name Felicity, Felicity Don't you make a fool out of me She left the circus when the tents burnt down Started car jacking with Freddy the Clown Well that bad business  Well it didn’t last long Now Freddy's in jail And she's in Saigon  Felicity, Felicity Don't you make a fool out of me Now she pickles snakes In whiskey and rum Smoked a pipe when I can along We started going steady but a bless my soul She's not really into rock and roll Felicity, Felicity Don't you make a fool out of me

Living underground In a foreign town Been on the cards Since I touched down Started that night When I lost all the ground And my words  They made no sound A Thousand miles I roam Trying to find a place to call my own In a house that's not a home Spend the year as a Ghost Rats scurry above my head But they wont bite  Unless I'm dead Lit blue by the light Of a TV screen And there's no windows Or doors A Thousand miles I roam Trying to find a place to call my own In a house that's not a home Spend the year as a Ghost And as the winter closes in I haunt the places  Where I have been Now just a shadow that moves at night On the road By dawn A Thousand miles I roam Trying to find a place to call my own In a house that's not a home Spend the year as a Ghost

Everything you ever wanted Everything you ever need Everything to make a modern day chick click I got So come on baby give me a try Come on baby now don’t be shy Turn up the volume  And kick off your shoes Let down your hair you got nothing to loose I'll be your self help book, so Come on baby Give me another look Cause I'm a  Heart break hooligan Catch me if you can Heart break hooligan I'm a one man band What does it take to  Make you happy What does it take to Make you sing What does it take when you know I got Everything Now I'll level with you honey I ain't got much money But what I don't have You don’t need And if you want me to stay You'll plead I'll help you through It all Just give my number a call Cause I'm a  Heart break hooligan Catch me if you can Heart break hooligan I'm a one man band Whenever your feeling lonely Whenever your feeling blue Whenever your feeling like You got Nothing to lose Well I'm on the end of the line You can be my empress divine Come on baby lets drink some wine Let's have a good time Cause I'm a  Heart break hooligan Catch me if you can Heart break hooligan I'm a one man band

I smoke too much That much is true I think it helps me Get over you I drink too much Same reason as before I sleep too much Can't wake up Well what's the point What's the point It's all too much It's all too much for me I dwell too much That much is true It doesn't help me  Get over you I waste my time That doesn't help Either I think too much Just can't stop Well what's the point What's the point It's all too much It's all too much for me It's all too much And not enough My situation is One as such That it's all too much It's all too much for me

You got to leave it alone and forget about it Leave it alone and forget about it You got to leave it alone and forget about it You just got to move on What's the use in all this trouble What the use in hitting the wall It doesn't matter if its double Scales on your eyes like poor old Saul You got to leave it alone and forget about it Leave it alone and forget about it You got to leave it alone and forget about it You just got to move on You can't get it back and you can't change it The pieces are scattered here to Istanbul The monkey on your back is throwing marbles Under you feet as you fall You got to leave it alone and forget about it Leave it alone and forget about it You got to leave it alone and forget about it You just got to move on She's a crazy little lady but she won't give you love Not the sweet kind that you're thinking of I can tell by your eyes that you'll never give up But she might break you in two You got to leave it alone and forget about it Leave it alone and forget about it You got to leave it alone and forget about it You just got to move on

Rats off a sinking ship Push comes to shove Jump in the thick of it I will sink or swim To a land without green packages Awash in teenage dreams What part of no don't you understand? You're particularly diligent in a parallel land Abundantly redundant, a rock in my hand What part of no don't you understand? Yes bruv, don't you know? You speak a little louder As her hips swing down the hall My face would open doors Electronical reassurance Beeping from the walls What part of no don't you understand? Your particularly diligent in a parallel land Abundantly redundant a rock in my hand What part of no don't you understand? Lesson twenty one Lesson three & four I missed lesson two As I fell through the floor Shatter well place plans Of coasting down the middle To a grown up land Seven months spent on the tube Didn't learn a single thing Didn't think I would What part of no don't you understand? Your particularly diligent in a parallel land Abundantly redundant a rock in my hand What part of no don't you understand?

There's a little black box Hidden in the corner Of a room where nobody goes And the walls are painted black So you can't see it And they're all the windows And the room's in a house  At the bottom of the street That is falling into the sea And the sea is turning black Like the tarmac That's in-between you and me Oh sweet thing you got to dive a little deeper Dive a little deeper than this And oh my my, breathe a little harder breathe a little harder than this All this time been a stumbling and a searching Looking for a place to be And that little black box on the bottom of the ocean That separates you and me Roll over rocks Roll through the gulleys The sea is silver tonight And the little black box At the bottom of the ocean Reflects no pale moonlight And they say it's full of silver They say it's full of gold They say it buys company But all this treasure Cannot change the weather  That's in-between you and me Woah Yeah! There's a little black box

When things just ain't right And nobody, nobody puts up a fight And it all goes wrong in the end Well I can't pretend to comprehend Well I guess it comes right down To how hard we all hit the ground Search for possibilities Like sailing on the sea of tranquillity When the crunch Comes crushing down And there no one to blame 'Cause they've all skipped town And they leave with all the profits and gold So I've been told its been foretold Well I guess it comes right down To how hard we all hit the ground Search for possibilities Like sailing on the sea of tranquillity Save your money  But what a price When god's in heaven  Well he's throwing dice The situation is driving you crazy You'll never know till you're pushing up daisies So keep on keeping on If you can't stop it  Let it roll on Let it pass, it will set you free And you'll sail the sea Well I guess it comes right down To how hard we all hit the ground Search for possibilities Like sailing on the sea of tranquillity
