  • Love And Rockets – Bound For Hell lyrics

    Well, faith flies off the mountain everyday
    No parachute, and prayers to say
    Yes, my faith flies off a mountain everyday
    And there’s no parachute, no goddamn prayers to say
    Fly the little monkey up a telegraph pole
    Sending out a signal to somebody, somebody
    Somebody, please somebody

    I want to hear a song that makes me believe in something
    I want to hear a song that makes me believe something
    I want to hear a song that makes me believe
    There’s something to believe in
    I want to hear a song that makes me believe

    Had a dream…

    I was riding on a train that wasn’t bound for glory
    Riding on a train, the train was bound for hell
    Riding on a train that wasn’t bound for glory, that’s for sure
    Riding on a train that’s bound for hell

    The engine with human blood was damp
    The headlight was a brimstone lamp
    And in for fuel was shoveled in bones
    And the furnace roared with a thousand groans

    The tank was filled with lager beer
    The devil himself was engineer
    The passengers were a mixed up crew
    Churchman, Atheist, Baptist too

    The rich in broadcloth, poor in rags
    Handsome girls, wrinkled hags
    Black men, yellow, red and white
    Chained together, fearful sight

    The train rushed on at an awful pace
    The sulfur fumes burned hands and face
    Wilder and wilder the country grew
    Faster and faster the engine flew

    Loud and terrible thunder crashed
    Whiter brighter lighting flashed
    Hotter still the air became
    Till clothes were burned from each sinners frame

    There came a fearful ear-splitting yell…
    Yell Satan: “dance, the next stop’s hell”
    Twas then the passengers shrieked with pain
    And begged the devil to stop the train
    Stop this train

    He shrieked and roared, and grinned with glee
    And mocked and laughed at their misery
    “My friends you’ve bought your seats on this road,
    I’ve got to get through with a complete load”

    You bully the weak, you’ve cheated the poor
    The starving tramp you turned from the door
    You’ll eat up gold till your purses bust
    You’ve given way to your beastly lust

    You’ve mocked at god in your hell-full pride
    You’ve killed and you’ve cheated, you’ve plundered and lied
    You’ve double crossed men and you’ve swore and you’ve stole
    Not a one but us perjured in body and soul
    Body and soul

    So you’ve paid full fare and I’ll carry you through
    If there’s one don’t belong, I’d like to know who
    And here’s a time when I ain’t no liar
    I’ll land you all safe in a land of fire

    And your flesh will scorch in the flames that roar
    You’ll sizzle and burn from rind to core
    Then I awake with a thrilling cry
    My were clothes were wet, my hair stood high

    And I prayed as I’ve never until that hour
    To be saved from hell and the devil’s power
    At present my vows were not in vain
    That I payed no fare on that hell-bound train
