    news broadcast: ...the soviets... in other news the bizarre murders of political and religious leaders that have shocked this city over the last month seemed to have ended as suddenly as they began. no terrorist groups ... responsibility for the slayings, but police have a suspect in custody under observation in a state hospital. his identity is being withheld pending further investigation. sports and weather next...

    weeks ago in occidental park, hundreds of people gathered for a political rally. there was a man shouting above all the others: "do we have freedom? do we have equality? this country's changing! it is no longer for all of the people! it is for some of the people!" the man's name? "dr. x."

    revolution calling

    for a price i'd do about anything
    except pull the trigger
    for that i'd need a pretty good cause
    then i heard of dr. x
    the man with the cure
    just watch the television
    yeah, you'll see there's something going on

    got no love for politicians
    or that crazy scene in d.c.
    it's just a power mad town
    but the time is ripe for changes
    there's a growing feeling
    that taking a chance on a new kind of vision is due

    i used to trust the media
    to tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    but now i've seen the payoffs
    everywhere i look
    who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

    secretaries the slam

    or playboy magazine, million dollar stories to tell
    i guess warhol wasn't wrong
    fame fifteen minutes long
    everyone's using everybody, making the sale

    operation: mindcrime

    {....ring!....ring! the phone hasn't stopped ringing since the hypnotic meeting with dr. x. his plan is brilliant in its simplicity: assassination and replacement. he calls it, "operation: mindcrime," and nikki is the key player. nikki has a weakness. he likes the needle. dr. x makes sure nikki feels good so he can do a good job. the chosen "death angel" is then easily manipulated through subliminal suggestion over the telephone. the password into nikki's brain is "mindcrime." }

    they've given me a mission
    i don't really know the game yet
    i'm bent on submission
    religion is to blame
    i'm the new messiah
    death angel with a gun
    dangerous in my silence
    deadly to my cause

    speak to me the pain you feel
    speak the word [revolution]
    the word is all of us

    i've given my life to become what i am
    to preach the new beginning
    to make you understand
    to reach some point of order
    utopia in mind, you've got to learn
    to sacrifice, to leave what's now behind

    speak to me the pain you feel
    speak the word
    the word is all of us
    speak the word
    the word is all of us

    seven years of power
    the corporation claw
    the rich control the government, the media the law
    to make some kind of difference
    then everyone must know
    eradicate the fascists, revolution will grow

    the system we learn says we're equal under law
    but the streets are reality, the weak and poor will fall
    let's tip the power balance and tear down their crown
    educate the masses, we'll burn the white house down

    speak to me the pain you feel
    speak to me the pain you feel
    speak the word [revolution]
    the word is all of us
    speak the word [revolution]
    the word is all of us

    the word is all of us

    spreading the disease

    she always brings me what i need
    without i beg and sweat and bleed
    when we're alone at night
    waiting for the call
    she feeds my skin

    sixteen and on the run from home
    found a job in times square
    working live s&m shows
    twenty-five bucks [a fuck]
    and john's a happy man
    she wipes the filth away
    and it's back on the streets again

    spreading the disease
    everybody needs
    but no one wants to see

    father william saved her from the streets
    she drank the lifeblood from the saviour's feet
    she's sister mary now, eyes as cold as ice
    he takes her once a week
    on the altar like a sacrifice

    spreading the disease
    everybody needs
    but no one wants to see

    religion and sex are powerplays
    manipulate the people for the money they pay
    selling skin, selling god
    the numbers look the same on their credit cards
    politicians say no to drugs
    while we pay for wars in south america

    fighting fire with empty words
    while the banks get fat
    and the poor stay poor
    and the rich get rich
    and the cops get paid
    to look away
    as the one percent rules america

    spreading the disease
    everybody needs
    but no one wants to see
    the way society
    keeps spreading the disease

    the mission

    [spoken]
    news broadcast: ...informing washington, a technical violation of the 1972 abm treaty...
    preacher: ...i'm asking for hands to be uplifted in just a moment. god the holy ghost is calling out to embrace you. i want you to reach deep into your hearts and your pocketbooks and take his hand.
    nikki: bless me father for i have sinned
    preacher: some of you are in a state of rebellion right now you're saying...
    gun shot...

    in the wooden chair
    beside my window
    i wear a face born in the falling rain
    i talk to shadows from a lonely candle
    recite the phrases from the wall
    i can't explain this holy pain

    six days ago my life had taken a tumble
    the orders came from high above they say
    a need to use me once again they've got my number
    further the cause boy yes you know the game

    i'll wait here for days longer
    till the sister comes to wash my sins away
    she is the lady that can ease my sorrow
    she brings the only friend
    that helps me find my way

    i search the past back to a time
    when i was younger
    a target for the new society
    picked to displace the leaders
    countering objectives
    of this new underground reality

    waiting for days longer
    'til sister comes to wash my sins away
    she is the lady that can ease my sorrow
    my love for her
    will help me find my way

    my mission saved the world
    and i stood proud
    my mission changed the world
    it turned my life around

    i look around my room is filled with candles
    each one a story but they end the same
    i'll hide away in here the law will never find me
    the walls will tell the story of my pain

    waiting for days longer
    till sister comes to wash my sins away
    she is the lady who can ease my sorrow
    she sets the pace for my delivery of pain

    they'll say my mission saved the world
    and i stood proud
    my mission changed the world
    the underground will rise and
    save this world we'll all stand proud
    our mission changed the world, we'll change the world
    we'll all stand proud

    suite sister mary

    [spoken]
    dr. x: kill her. that's all you have to do.
    nikki: kill mary?
    dr. x: she's a risk, and get the priest as well.

    10 p.m., i feel the rain coming down
    my face feels the wet, my mind the storm
    flashing lights as people race to find shelter from the pour
    moving silent, through the streets, they're mine, they're mine

    midnite, she sings praises in the hall
    to saintly faces hallowed be their names she can't recall
    sister mary, virgin mary, silent with her sin
    [ mary: what are you doing out in the rain? ]
    she feels me, i can taste her breath when she speaks
    [ mary: i've been waiting for you. come in. ]

    mary, mary just a whore for the underground
    they made you pay in guilt for your salvation
    thought you had them fooled? now they've sent me for you
    you know too much for your own good
    don't offer me faith, i've got all i need here
    my faith is growing, growing tight against the seam
    what we need is trust, to keep us both alive
    help us make it through the night

    [ mary ]
    i've no more want of any faith
    binds my arm and feed my mind
    the only peace i've ever known
    i'll close my eyes and you shoot

    no mary, listen, you've got to pull your strength from my lips
    i pray i feed you well
    your precious cross is gone, it made me wait so long
    for what you gave to everyone
    the priest is cold and dead on his knees he fed
    from my barrel of death, he turned the holy water red
    as he died he said thank you
    i just watched him bleed

    [ mary ]
    i feel the flow, the blessed stain
    sweating hands like fire, and flames
    burn my thighs, spread in sacrificial rite
    the hallowed altar burns my flesh once more tonight

    mary, my lady of pain, always alone
    blind you search for the truth
    i see myself in you, parallel lives
    winding at light-speed through time

    no time to rest yet
    we've got to stop his game
    before madness has the final laugh
    too much bloodshed
    we're being used and fed
    like rats in experiments
    no final outcome here
    only pain and fear
    it's followed us both all our lives
    there's one thing left to see
    will it be him or me?
    there's one more candle left to light

    [ mary ]
    don't turn your back on my disgrace
    the blood of christ can't heal my wounds...so deep
    the sins of man are all i taste
    can't spit the memory from my mind
    i can't cry anymore

    mary, my lady of pain, always alone
    blind you search for the truth
    i see myself in you, parallel lives
    winding at light-speed through time, you're mine

    the needle lies

    [spoken]
    nikki: i've had enough and i want out!
    dr. x: you can't walk away now.

    i looked back once
    and all i saw was his face
    smiling, the needle crying
    walking out of his room
    with mirrors, afraid i heard him scream
    you'll never get away

    cold and shaking
    i crawled down alleys to try
    and scrape away the tracks that marked me
    slammed my face into walls of concrete
    i stared, amazed at the words written on the wall

    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle, it lies
    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle when it cries...
    cries your name

    wet and raving
    the needle keeps calling me back
    to bloody my hands forever
    carved my cure with the blade
    that left me in scars
    now every time i'm weak
    words scream from my arm

    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle, it lies
    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle when it cries...
    cries your name
    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle, it lies
    don't ever trust
    don't ever trust the needle when it cries...
    cries your name

    electric requiem

    [spoken]
    nikki: anybody home? mary?

    even in death
    you still look sad
    don't leave me
    don't leave me...here
    i want what you feel, believe me
    turn the current on

    breaking the silence

    they told me to run, but just how far?
    can i go wearing the black mask of fear?
    the hate in my eyes always gives me away
    the tension building slowly
    now i lost everything i had in you
    nothing we shared means a thing
    without you close to me
    i can't live without you

    breaking the silence of the night
    can't you hear me screaming?
    i look for your face in the neon light
    you never answer me

    there's no direction to my stare
    no more flame burning in my heart anymore
    quiet, i keep it to myself
    until the sun sets slowly
    i hear your voice in the evening rain calling
    nothing will keep us apart
    no more lies and fear
    there's no end to our story

    breaking the silence of the night
    can't you hear me screaming?
    i look for your face in the neon light
    you never answer
    i could make all the wrong seem right
    if you were by my side
    i'd gather all the tears you cried
    and hide them deep underground

    can't look back, it's just a waste of time
    can't erase this hate from my eyes

    breaking the silence of the night
    through the streets i'm screaming
    looking for you in the neon light
    why don't you answer me?
    breaking the silence with my cries
    can't you hear me screaming?
    we could make all this wrong seem right
    but you never answer me

    [spoken]we know you did it.why did you do it? why'd you do it?
    you didn't do it. why did you do it?
    nikki:no, no , nooooo

    i don't believe in love

    i awoke on impact
    under surveillance from the camera eye
    searching high and low
    the criminal mind found at the scene of the crime
    handcuffed and blind, i didn't do it
    she said she loved me
    i guess i never knew
    but do we ever, ever really know?
    she said she'd meet me on the other side
    but i knew right then, i'd never find her

    i don't believe in love
    i never have, i never will
    i don't believe in love
    it's never worth the pain that you feel

    no more nightmares, i've seen them all
    from the day i was born, they've haunted my every move
    every open hand's there to push and shove
    no time for love it doesn't matter
    she made a difference
    i guess she had a way
    of making every night seem bright as day
    now i walk in shadows, never see the light
    she must have lied 'cause she never said goodbye

    i don't believe in love
    i never have, i never will
    i don't believe in love
    i'll just pretend she never was real
    i don't believe in love
    i need to forget her face, i see it still
    i don't believe in love
    it's never worth the pain that you feel

    no chance for contact
    there's no raison d'etre
    my only hope is one day i'll forget
    the pain of knowing what can never be
    with or without love it's all the same to me

    i don't believe in love
    i never have, i never will
    i don't believe in love
    i'll just pretend she never was real
    i don't believe in love
    i need to forget her face, i see it still
    i don't believe in love
    it's never worth the pain that you feel

    waiting for 22

    my empty room

    empty room today
    and here i sit
    chalk outline upon the wall
    i remember tracing it
    a thousand times, the night she died.
    why? [why?]
    there's no sleep today, i can't pretend
    when all my dreams are crimes
    i can't stand facing them
    now who will come
    to wash away my sins
    clean my room, fix my meals
    be my friend?

    all alone now
    except for the memories
    of what we had and what we knew
    everytime i try to leave it behind me
    i see something that reminds me of you
    every night the dreams return to haunt me
    your rosary wrapped around your throat
    i lie awake and sweat, afraid to fall asleep
    i see your face looking back at me

    and i raise my head and stare
    into the eyes of a stranger
    i've always known that the mirror never lies
    people always turn away
    from the eyes of a stranger
    afraid to know what
    lies behind the stare

    is this all that's left
    of my life before me
    straight jacket memories, sedative highs
    no happy ending like they've always promised
    there's got to be something left for me
    and i raise my head and stare
    into the eyes of a stranger
    i've always known that the mirror never lies
    people always turn away
    from the eyes of a stranger
    afraid to know what
    lies behind the stare [lies behind my stare]

    how many times must i live this tragedy
    how many more lies will they tell me
    all i want is the same as everyone
    why am i here, and for how long
