There were sleepless dreamers, doomsday preachers
The message and the messenger, the gun beneath the register
The sweet gum tree by the tough drunk tank
We could never give enough to the bad blood bank

There were hopeless sinners, sweepstake winners
They danced with the farmer’s daughter,
Capered with the corporate lawyers

But it all came down to you and I

I wanna make some loud noisesSet something offLight it on fire and thenWatch it blow upI am the whistle before the explosionI am the heat that makes powder expandSome days I wake up luckyToday I am the queen of the damned…I wanna make some loud noisesPiss someone offGet a fight going and thenWatch it blow upMake it blow up

I wanna make some loud noises
Set something off
Light it on fire and then
Watch it blow up

I am the whistle before the explosion
I am the heat that makes powder expand
Some days I wake up lucky
Today I am the queen of the damned

I wanna make some loud noises
Piss someone off
Get a fight going and then
Watch it blow up
Make it blow up

Time can over-complicate
But darling, I refuse to wait
There’s no way of planning
For the fall
All your paths will fade away
Questions read by years in pain
I can be the answer to it all

Even if your heart stops
I’ll be there to hold you up
Even as the world turns
I’ll be there to watch the fire burn
Burn us both alive
