Track Name: twist
THERE’S A TWIST IN MY SPIRIT, TWIST IN MY SOUL
TWISTING & SHOUTING WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL
I’M TIED AND TWISTED ALL OVER YOU
I’M BRIGHT YELLOW BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE

REPEAT

IS IT THE DARK ENGINE OF STARDOM THAT DRIVES ME?
THE PROMISE OF WHAT’S TO COME?
CAN I EVER REALLY GET A GOOD SLEEP AT NIGHT?
GRATEFUL OF WHAT I’VE DONE?
DO I REALLY WANT THE WORLD’S ATTENTION?
DO I WANNA PAY THE PRICE OF FAME?
DO I REALLY NEED EVERYONE TO LOVE ME?
EVERYONE TO KNOW MY NAME?

THERE’S A TWIST IN MY SPIRIT, TWIST IN MY SOUL
TWISTING & SHOUTING WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL
I’M TIED AND TWISTED ALL OVER YOU
I’M BRIGHT YELLOW BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE

THERE’S A MOTHERLESS BLACK HOLE OUT THERE
SUCKING ALL MY INSPIRATION
LIKE A CELL PHONE CALL FROM SATAN’S WIFE
PISSED OFF AND FRUSTRATED

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH… COME ON, COME ON TAKE IT
YEAH, YEAH, YEAH… COME ON, COME ON TAKE IT




THERE’S A TWIST IN MY SPIRIT, TWIST IN MY SOUL
TWISTING & SHOUTING WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL
I’M TIED AND TWISTED ALL OVER YOU
I’M BRIGHT YELLOW BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE

IT’S ALRIGHT, IT’S ALRIGHT

MUSIC IS THE CHANNEL TO YOUR SPIRIT
MUSIC IS THE GATEWAY TO YOURSELF
MUSIC IS THE ENGINE TO YOUR SOUL
I NEVER WANTED ANYTHING ELSE
MUSIC IS THE CHANNEL TO YOUR SPIRIT
MUSIC IS THE GATEWAY TO YOURSELF
MUSIC IS THE ENGINE TO YOUR SOUL
I NEVER WANTED ANYTHING ELSE

THERE’S A TWIST IN MY SPIRIT, TWIST IN MY SOUL
TWISTING & SHOUTING WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL
I’M TIED AND TWISTED ALL OVER YOU
I’M BRIGHT YELLOW BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE

THERE’S ANOTHER TWIST IN THE TALE
A KNIFE BETWEEN MY SHOULDER BLADES
ALL THE SINS THAT I’VE CONFESSED
ALL THE FAILING PLANS I’VE MADE
THERE’S ANOTHER TWIST IN THE TALE
A KNIFE BETWEEN MY SHOULDER BLADES
ALL THE SINS THAT I’VE CONFESSED
ALL THE FAILING PLANS I’VE MADE

THERE’S A TWIST IN MY SPIRIT, TWIST IN MY SOUL
TWISTING & SHOUTING WITH THE ROCK AND ROLL
I’M TIED AND TWISTED ALL OVER YOU
I’M BRIGHT YELLOW BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE

TWIST AND SHOUT, LET IT ALL HANG OUT
KNOCK YOURSELF OUT
COME ON, COME ON TAKE IT

I’M BRIGHT YELLOW, BUT I’D RATHER BE BLUE
