INXS - Kick (1987)



Guns in the Sky

See the sound
It crashes in
All around
It gets in

Now take your hands
And raise them up
Into the air

That's all around ya

Now bring 'em down
Like a clock at two
Shake your hair

You know what to do
They want to put
Guns in the sky

Somewhere out there
Ain't gonna like it
Well it could be good
Make us love each other

Have to realize
Our only future

Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky
Guns in
the sky

Guns in the sky
Guns in the sky

Child grows up to see

Guns in the sky
Used to be on TV
Wanna change
Forgot the joke
It's great to see you

I'm running late
Da da da
Love your hair
Da da da

Lend me a ten
Da da da

I love your big house
Da da da

Could you spare a dime
Well I'm sick of it
It's a load of shit

We could stop the world
And let off all the fools
And let them go live
With their guns in the sky


New Sensation

Live baby live

Now that the day is over

I got a new sensation

In perfect moments

Impossible to refuse

Sleep baby sleep

Now that the night is over

And the sun comes like a god

Into our room

All perfect light and promises

Gotta hold on you

A new sensation

A new sensation

Right now

Gonna take you over

A new sensation

A new sensation

Dream baby dream

Of all that's come and going

And you will find out

In the end

There really is

There really is no difference

Cry baby cry

When you've got to get it out

I'll be your shoulder

You can tell me all

Don't keep it in ya

Well that's the reason why I'm here

Are you ready for a new sensation

A new sensation

Right now

Gonna take you on a new sensation

A new sensation

Hate baby hate

When there's nothing left for you

You're only human

What can you do

It'll soon be over

Don't let your pain take over you

Love baby love

It's written all over your face

There's nothing better we could do

Than live forever

Well that's all we've got to do

Hey now I'm gonna take a new sensation

A new sensation


Devil Inside

 

Here come the woman

With the look in her eye

Raised on leather

With flesh on her mind

Words as weapons sharper than knives

Makes you wonder how the other half die

Other half die

Here come the man

With the look in his eye

Fed on nothing

But full of pride

Look at them go

Look at them kick

Makes you wonder how the other half live

The devil inside

The devil inside

Every single one of us the devil inside

The devil inside

The devil inside

Every single one of us the devil inside

Here come the world

With the look in its eye

Future uncertain but

certainly slight

Look at the faces

Listen to the bells

It's hard to believe we need a place called hell

 

Need You Tonight

 

Come over here

All you got is this moment

The twenty-first century's yesterday

You can care all you want

Everybody does yeah that's okay

So slide over here

And give me a moment

Your moves are so raw

I've got to let you know

I've got to let you know

You're one of my kind

I need you tonight

'Cause I'm not sleeping

There's something about you girl

That makes me sweat

How do you feel

I'm lonely

What do you think

Can't take it all

Whatcha gonna do

Gonna live my life

 

Mediate

 

Hallucinate

Dessegregate

Mediate

Alleviate

Try not to hate

Love your mate

Don't suffocate on your own hate

Designate your love as fate

A one world state

As human freight

The number eight

A white black state

A gentle trait

The broken crate

A heavy weight

Or just too late

Like pretty Kate has sex ornate

Now devastate

Appreciate

Depreciate

Fabricate

Emulate

The truth dilate

Special date

The animal we ate

Guilt debate

The edge serrate

A better rate

The youth irate

Deliberate

Fascinate

Deviate

Reinstate

Liberate

To moderate

Recreate

Or detonate

Annihiliate

Atomic fate

Mediate

Clear the state

Activate

Now radiate

A perfect state

Food on plate

Gravitate

The Earth's own weight

Designate your love as fate

At ninety-eight we all rotate

Hallucinate

Dessegregate

Mediate

Alleviate

Try not to hate

Love your mate

Don't suffocate on your own hate

Designate your love as fate

A one world state

As human freight

The number eight

A white black state

A gentle trait

The broken crate

A heavy weight

Or just too late

Like pretty Kate has sex ornate

Now devastate

Appreciate

Depreciate

Fabricate

Emulate

The truth dilate

Special date

The animals we ate

Guilt debate

The edge serrate

A better rate

The youth irate

Deliberate

Fascinate

Deviate

Reinstate

Liberate

Liberate

Liberate

Liberate

 

The Loved One

 

Yonder she's walking

She comes my way

Her red dress on

Her long black hair

Walking like

Talking like

Wanting like

She c

omes to me

Oh baby I love you so

I need you now

I want you back

I can't go on

Helpless baby

Evil child

I've known you well

And if you want to stay

That's alright

That's alright

And now she's gone

She's walking away

Her red dress on

Her long black hair

Well I love her so

And now she'll come running

Anytime I say now

Anytime I say

 

Wild Life

 

Take one step

Out the door

Look around

For a whole lot more

Off in the distance

Fire burn bright

We make decisions

That's what we do

That's what we do

Wild life

Wild life

When it's bad it ain't bad enough

I'll be your one

Your one and only

Like animals

Locked in the zoo

Give me freedom

Day and night

No one to tell me

What to do

I got to learn

Some respect

That's what I have

I have for you

Motivation

It comes and goes

But the questions

They stay alive

 

Never Tear Us Apart

Don't ask me

What you know is true

Don't have to tell you

I love your precious heart

I

I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided

And they could never tear us apart

We could live

For a thousand years

But if I hurt you

I'd make wine from your tears

I told you

That we could fly

'Cause we all have wings

But some of us don't know why

I

I was standing

You were there

Two worlds collided

And they could never ever tear us apart

 

Mystify

All veils and misty

Streets of blue

Almond looks

That chill divine

Some silken moment

Goes on forever

And we're leaving broken hearts behind

Mystify

Mystify me

Mystify

Mystify me

I need perfection

Some twisted selection

That tangles me

To keep me alive

In all that exists

None have your beauty

I see your face

I will survive

Eternally wild with the power

To make every moment come alive

All those stars that shine upon you

Will kiss you every night

All veils and misty

Streets of blue

Almond looks

That chill divine

Some silken moment

Goes on forever

And we're leaving

Yeah we're leaving broken hearts behind

You're eternally wild with the power

To make every moment come alive

All those stars that shine upon you

And they'll kiss you every night

 

Kick

Sometimes you kick

Sometimes you get kicked

Sometimes you kick

Come on come on come on come

I look around unsatisfied

At what they're giving me

Then I think to myself

Is there someone else

Who feels the same as me

Do you feel the same baby

When my back is broken

When the mountain moves away

All the dreams and promises

That we give

We give away

Sometimes you kick

Sometimes you get kicked

Sometimes you kick

Sometimes you get kicked

Look ahead

But don't mix it up

Baby look ahead

To better days and better ways

Make peace with flesh and blood

Make peace with your love

Nothing more I could ask of you

In the end this is the truth

 

Calling All Nations

Well you spent the whole day

With your axe to the wheel

Read the late paper it was full of bad news

Excuse me but I think what I'm saying is true

You've got to find some time and devote it to you

So come on down

To the party

Callin' all nations

To put it on the line

So come on all you people with the stars in your hair

You know what's

going on

There's no need to despair

Take the chains from your mind

Take the chains from your feet

And do the sex dance 'cause it's necessary

You don't have to be rich

You don't have to be famous

You just gotta have a little bit of patience

Jump into your old car

Or take a cab, train or boat

The only thing that matters

Is that ya gotta really go


Tiny Daggers

Ever stop to wonder
Should I question
Move a stone look under
Should I judge
How you have changed my friend
You're not the same my friend

Do you lose sleep at night
Do you ever stop to think
Where it went wrong for you
Who turned your reds to blue

Who put those tiny daggers in your heart
Who put those tiny daggers in your heart
Who put those tiny daggers in your heart

Ever stop to wonder
I should not question
Move a stone look under
I should not judge

They say you're never lonely
They say you're with the best
But when they turn those lights out

I bet you spin and turn
And cry just like the rest
And cry just like a baby

Ever stop to wonder
should not question
Move a stone look under
I should not judge

No need for desperation
No need for sweet revenge
Please try to remember

The door is always there
Don't you walk on by
The door is always there
All you want to do is kick it in
All you got to do is walk right in
