I killed your baby today
And it doesn't matter much to me

I got something to say
I raped your mother today
And it doesn't matter much to me
As long as she's spread

True lovely death
Just waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress

True lovely death
Just waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress

I got something to say
I killed your baby today
And it doesn't matter much to me
As long as it's dead

True lovely death
Just waiting for your breath
Come sweet death, one last caress
Last caress today

Lyrics are as follows (Medley of Last Caress and Green Hell lyrics)

Here in this place lies the genie of death
Touch it, see it
Whoa

Here in this place is a means to your end
Touch it, feel it
Green hell

You've come to this like no one could
I bet you never knew you woke it
And don't you run away from it
I bet you thought you really could

We're gonna burn in Hell
Green hell
Like every hell but kind of green
In Hell, green hell
We're gonna face the mess we're
In Hell, green hell
I think I'd rather be up here
In Hell, green hell
You know I fuckin' shake apart
In Hell, green hell
Gotta find a way that you will stay
Green hell
Cannot forget about the heat
In Hell, green hell
Hell is green I need a flame
In Hell, green hell
Gonna burn in Hell
Green hell

You've come to this like no one could
I bet you never knew you woke it
And don't you run from it
I bet you thought you really could

Here in this place lies the genie of death
Touch it, see it
Whoa

Here in this place is the way to your end
Touch it, see it
Green hell

You've come to this like no one could
I bet you never knew you woke it
And don't you run away from it
I bet you thought you really could
You've come to this like no one could
I bet you never knew you woke it
We're gonna burn in Hell
Green hell

Performed at the 2007 Bridge School Benefit

Lyrics are as follows:

I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
I just want to celebrate another day of life
I put my faith in the people
But the people let me down
Well, I turned the other way
And I carry on, anyhow
That's why I'm telling you

I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
Another day of living,
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Well, I had my hands on a dollar bill
And the dollar bill blew away
But the sun is shining down on me
And it's here to stay
That's why I'm telling you

I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
Another day of living, yeah
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Don't let it all get you down, no, no
Don't let it turn you around and around

Well, I can't be bothered with sorrow
And I can't be bothered with hate, no, no
But I'm using up my time and I'm feeling fine, every day
That's why I'm telling you

I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
I just want to celebrate another day
I just want to celebrate another day of living
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Don't let it all get you down, no, no
Don't let it spin you around and around,
And around and around, and around
Around round round
Don't let it spin you around
Don't let it bring you down

I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate
I just want to celebrate

Please Don't Judas Me

Originally recorded by Nazareth

Performed at the 2007 Bridge School Benefit

Lyrics are as follows:

Please don't judas me
Treat me as you like to be treated
Please don't blacklist me
Leave me as you'd wish to find me
Don't analyze me, sacrifice me
Please don't judas me

Please don't chastise me
Show me just one shred of kindness
Guide my eyes to see
Guide me in my eyes of blindness
Don't despise me, categorize me
Please don't judas me

No, please don't judas me
No, please don't judas me

Please don't headshrink me
Don't disguise your innuendos
Make no lies to me
I can see which way the wind blows
Don't deface me, annihilate me
Please don't judas me

Please don't number me
Don't betray my trusted promise
Please don't anger me
I find it hard to bear no fairness
Don't frustrate me, manipulate me
Please don't judas me

No, please don't judas me
No, please don't judas me
No, no don't judas me
No, please don't judas me, no

I'm Only Happy When It Rains

Originally recorded by Garbage

Performed at the 2007 Bridge School Benefit

Lyrics are as follows:

I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when its complicated
And though I know you cant appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains

You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down on me
Just pour your misery down on me
Pour that misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
Feelin' good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn't accidentally tell you that
I'm only happy when it rains

You'll get the message by the time I'm through
When I complain about me and you
I'm only happy when it rains

So, pour that misery down on me
Pour your misery down on me
Pour that misery down on me
Come on and pour your misery down on me

You can keep it all on me
As long as you don't care

I'm only happy when it rains
You wanna hear about my new obsession?
Riding high upon the deep depression
I'm only happy when it rains
Pour some misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)
I'm only happy when it rains
(Pour some misery down on me)

Pour your misery down on me
Come on and pour that misery down on me
Come on, pour that misery down on me

Brothers in Arms

Originally recorded by Dire Straits

Performed at the 2007 Bridge School Benefit

Lyrics are as follows:

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I witnessed your suffering
As the battle raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
Through the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There are so many different worlds
So many different suns
But we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man's got to die
But it's written in the starlight
And in the line of your palms
We're all fools to make war
On our brothers in arms
Yes, we're all fools
We're all fools
We're all fools
Oh, such fools

We're all fools to make war
On our brothers
Yeah, we're all fools to make war
On our brothers
Yeah, we're all fools to make war
On our brothers
Yeah, we're all fools

Veteran of a Psychic War

Originally recorded by Blue Oyster Cult

Performed at the 2007 Bridge School Benefit

Lyrics are as follows:

You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
I've been living on the edge so long
Where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm young enough to look at
But far too old to see
All my scars are on the inside
I'm not sure there's anything left of me

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh, please don't let these shakes go on

You ask me why I'm weary, why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence
Say it's time I changed and grew
But the war's still going on dear
And there's no end that I know
And I can't stand for ever
I can't say if we're ever gonna be free

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating out our brains
Oh, please don't let these shakes go on

You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
My energy's spent at last
And my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my weapons
And I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say that this is victory?

No! Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating out our brains
Oh, please don't let these shakes go on

Don't let these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on

Hardwired... To Self-Destruct

Available on This Is Your Life (Ronnie James Dio tribute album) (2014) - studio
Available on Hardwired... To Self-Destruct (bonus disc) (2016) - studio

Lyrics are as follows:

I don't wanna go
Something tells me no, no, no, no
But traces in the sand
The lines inside my hand say go, go, go

Beware of a place
A smile on a bright shiny face
I'll never return, how do you know

Tarot woman
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

She can take you there
The entrance to the fair, my, my, my
Ride the carousel
Cast a magic spell, you can fly, fly, fly

Beware of a place
A smile on a bright shiny face
I'll never return, how do you know

Tarot woman
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know

High noon
Oh I'd sell my soul for water
Nine years' worth
Of breakin' my back
There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
See how he glides
Why he's lighter than air
Oh I see his face

Where is your star
Is it far, is it far, is it far
When do we leave
I believe, I believe, yes, I believe

In the heat and the rain
With whips and chains
Just to see him fly
So many die

We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
Just to see him fly
Don't know why

Now where do we go..

Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Strike him down

Power, power happens every day
Power, devour all along the way
Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
And fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Strike him down

Treason, treason, the spectre looms again
Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the king
Got to take his crown

Originially recorded by Deep Purple.

Available on Hardwired... To Self-Destruct (bonus disc) (2016) - studio

Lyrics are as follows:

If you're leaving, close the door
I'm not expecting people, anymore
Hear me grieving, lying on the floor
Whether drunk or dead, I really ain't too sure

I'm a blind man
I'm a blind man
And my world is pale
When a blind man cries
Lord, you know
There ain't a sadder tale

Had a friend once, in a room
Had a good time, but it ended much too soon
In a cold month, in that room
We found a reason, for the things we had to do

I'm a blind man
I'm a blind man
Now my room is cold
When a blind man cries
Lord, you know
He feels it from his soul

I'm a blind man
I'm a blind man
And my world is pale
When a blind man cries
Lord, you know
There ain't a sadder tale

Lyrics are as follows:

Unchain the colors
Before my eyes
Yesterday's sorrows
Tomorrow's white lies
Scan the horizon
The clouds take me higher
I shall return
From out of the fire

Tears for rememberance
And tears for joy
Tears for somebody
Not this lonely boy
Out in the madness
The all seeing eye
Flickers above us
To light up the sky

Unchain the colors
Before my eyes
Yesterday's sorrows
Tomorrow's white lies
Scan the horizon
The clouds lift me higher
I shall return
From out of the fire
