Primal Scream


Ivy Ivy Ivy

Ivy you're a girl that I can never taste
I get violent feelings when I see your face
You're so warm and beautiful and soft and kind
I close my eyes but you're still shining in my head
Oh Ivy, Ivy

You eat me away every night everyday
My dreams are nightmares like heads are tails
I can see and hear you
I just can't get near you

[Chorus]
Ivy Ivy, oh you destroy me yes you do
Ivy Ivy, oh you destroy me yes you do

Ivy you're a thousand girls tormenting me
My minds a hall of mirrors where you're all I see
I get sicker by the second you're my lifelong curse
My egg shell head is your to break I feel like dirt
Oh Ivy, Ivy

You mainline me stars and you scratch and you scar
I'm a fool for your jewels it's true
I'm burned out i'm damged
You're so sweet and savage

Chorus

Ivy Ivy you destroy me (8x)
You do
You touch me you chill me
You smile and you kill me
You kiss me you crown me
You twist me you drown me


You're Just Dead Skin to Me

Everyday is a better day without you
I got so strung out I lost myself all tangled up in you
Sweet lover, sister, friend, you were my everything
I dreamed a dream of you but it wasn't true
It wasn't true no, no

[Chorus]
I don't care now you are dead skin to me
I don't care now you are dead skin to me

Your pretty face hides a darker place I got damaged
When my soul was sick you pushed I tripped
I hurtso hard I hurt
Addicted to you I was weak you stole my mind
It's a twisted world you're a twisted girl
Your curse don't hurt no more

I don't care now you are dead skin to me (2x)


She Power

I wanna scream I wanna shout
When I see your electric smile
I don't believe in God or Original Sin
I only wanna touch and taste your skin
I get the vampire blues when I look at you
Come on kiss away my darkest days
You make me feel so good you got me

[Chorus]
You got me in a spell, Marianne
I saw you and I fell, Marianne
You got me in a spell, Marianne
I saw you and I fell, you got me

I don't want silver I don't want gold
I want a girl who can stone my soul
Making me treasure every breath
With her stray cat eyes and her hair all messed
You're the sweetest fruit you can stone my soul
You can heal my hurt
You make my split heart whole
You got me strung out I started laughing
You got me in a spell marianne
[marianne by background singers]
I saw you and i fell marianne
[marianne by background singers]
You got me in a spell marianne
[marianne by background singers]
I saw you and I fell,
hey Marianne you got me, oh oh

Repeat Chorus

With your hair all messed (up?)
And your cherry lips
And your stray cat eyes
I want your kiss
Never say never do
Always girl please take me
I surrender
(you got me lips sweet lips) (2x)


You're Just too Dark to Care

Morning comes
All your friends are dead or gone
You sit there staring at the wall
You tripped you took a long hard fall
You can't sleep, you're cold
You're numb you're wasted, you feel beat

You get burned
You hurt like hell you'll never learn
You'll just do what you always do
When people wash their hands of you
Lose yourself in alcohol and any drugs you find

Nobody can help you when you're this far down
Nobody can help you when you're this far down
Nobody can help you nobody can help you
Nobody can help you when you're this far down
No one but you
Nobody but you
Nobody but you
Nobody but you


I'm losing more than I'll ever have

Please stop crying
I know you know I've been lyin'
Please stop crying
I know your love for me is dying
There ain't nothing I wouldn't do
To get myself back close to you
Please stop cryin'
I'm sorry I hurt you

I betrayed you
You trusted me and I betrayed you
If I obeyed you
I can't be me so I betrayed you
I don't want nobody else
I just want you to myself
But I betrayed you
I'm sorry I hurt you

I'm losing more than I'll ever have
I feel bad, I feel so bad
I mess your head but you still possess me
Baby baby baby have mercy, have mercy on me

You got a heart of gold
You can't be bought or sold
You got a heart of gold baby
I got the blues for you
I give myself to you
I got the blues for you baby
(Repeat)

Oh yeah
Don't you believe me
Will you redeem me
Don't you believe me baby
(Repeat)

Stay with me (repeat to fade)

Lone Star Girl

Wendy Wendy you move me

You're way beyond the ways of violence
Nothing can look through you
You fill me with good feelings
You kiss away my violence

[Chorus]
WWendy, Wendy, oh Wendy, oh Wendy
Wendy, Wendy, oh Wendy, oh Wendy
Wendy, oh Wendy

Hey Wendy you move me
Hey Wendy you move me

Protest songs won't stop the bombs
Nor soft rebellion neither
You fill me with good feelings
You kiss away my violence

Repeat Chorus

You fill me with good feelings
You kiss away my violence
Wendy Wendy hey I adore you
Wendy Wendy hey I adore you

Hey hey Wendy Wendy Wendy (7x)


Kill the King

You said making love is a form of violence
You said victory is all, I don't believe in you
The mind behind the the man behind the gun
Behind the bullet in the skull
Is part of everyone
We all can kill we've got the will
The demon seed is planted deep
In our subconcious fear is King
Fear rots inside everything
Kill the King

You said you would kill
If it helped to change the world
You said you would take a life
How many lifes are worth freedom
The mind behind the man behind the gun
Behind the bullet in the skull
Is part of everyone
We all can kill we've got the will
The demon seed is planted deep
In our subconcious fear is king
Fear rots inside everything
Kill the King


Sweet Pretty Thing

Pretty thing, sweet as rain on a hot summer day
I want you
Pretty thing, I don't pray but to you I will pray
I want you
Let's take a walk together
It's quiet down by the river
Come on now, come on now, come on now

[Chorus]
Pretty pretty give yourself to me
Pretty pretty give yourself to me
Pretty pretty give yourself to me
Come on

Pretty thing, you're so young
I see you blowing bubble gum and I want you
Pretty thing, when you smile I say hey little child
I want you
Give me your vows come with me
Open your mouth and kiss me
Come on now, come on now, come on now

Repeat Chorus

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on


Jesus can't save me

I can't shake these feelings
They are rooted deep
They claw they ache
I can't escape the fears inside of me

I don't need religion
Jesus can't save me
I don't pray to anyone
Except the one I love

And I say
Baby baby baby I love you
Baby baby baby I love you
Baby baby I believe in you

Lone Star Girl (Demo lyrics)*

Wendy Wendy hey I adore you

Wendy Wendy you move me
Wendy Wendy you move me
You are precious
Your soul's not up for auction

Nor soft rebellion neither

You kiss away my violence
