Alice Cooper - Brutal Planet Lyrics




We're spinning round on this ball of hate
There's no parole, there's no great escape
We're sentenced here until the end of days
And then my brother there's a price to pay

We're only human, we were born to die
Without the benefit of reason why
We live for pleasure to be satisfied
And now it's over there's no place to hide

Why don't you, come down to
It's such a brutal planet
It's such an ugly world
Why won't you, come down to

"This world is such perfection" (What a sight)
"It's just like paradise" (For my eyes)
"A truly grand creation" (What a sight)
"From up here it looks so nice" (For my eyes)

It's such a brutal planet
It's such a living hell
It was a holy garden
That's right where Adam fell
It's where the bite was taken
It's where we chose to sin
It's where we first were naked
This is where our death begins

We took advice from that deceiving snake
He said don't worry it's a piece of cake
And sent us swimming in a burning lake
Now we're abandoned here for heaven's sake

Why don't you, come down to
It's such a brutal planet
It's such an ugly world
Why won't you, come down to

"This world is such perfection" (What a sight)
"It's just like paradise" (For my eyes)
"A truly grand creation" (What a sight)
"From up here it looks so nice" (For my eyes)

Here's where we keep the armies
Here's where we write their names
Here's where the money got us
Here's our famous hall of shame
Here's where we starve the hungry
Here's where we cheat the poor
Here's where we beat the children
Here is where we pay the whores

Why don't you, come down to
It's such a brutal planet
It's such an ugly world
Why won't you, come down to

"This world is such perfection" (What a sight)
"It's just like paradise" (For my eyes)
"A truly grand creation" (What a sight)
"From up here it looks so nice" (For my eyes)

Right here we stoned the prophets
Built idols out of mud
Right here we fed the lions
Christian flesh and Christian blood
Down here is where we hung him
Upon an ugly cross
Over there we filled the ovens
Right here the holocaust

  1. Miner 79'er

    His Ultimate Comeback. With God on His Side!

  2. B 12

    I remember watching this when I was like 4 or 5 years old. My dad had it on vcr. Amazing performance

  3. Gabrielle McAfee

    Nobody is talking about that goofy hairpiece with the sticks on his head? Bahahahahahaha Love the sound and costuming though!

  4. Thiago Coutinho

    I have this DVD in my collection. Amazing performance! I loved "Brutal Planet", the album, and the line up of this band on this DVD was something else! The version of "Poison" here it's my favorite one! :) \m/

  5. ulises slozar diaz

    He is kinda out of my radar. I should check him more

  6. Tom H

    Ryan Roxie.

  7. Thom Alf

    Alice cooper is the one and only true god of shock rock! He just keeps getting better and better. Kids take notes: You are witnessing a Legend

  8. Marlin de vil

    alice is the best

  9. Paul Lebowski

    We're Sentenced here Until The End Of Days.. What Joy. 🙏

    Miner 79'er

    1947 people are like 1979 or 1983. Pessimystic. That's another song of Alice Cooper's.

  10. taddy boy

    GENIOUS !

  11. John Self

    What a show! Watching Eric Singer on the drums was incredible. Whole cast on Brutal planet Live was A+. If you get your hands on a DVD of the whole show, your in for a treat..

    Raven Bishop

    I have the DVD, love it

  12. TheZediaz

    Total control of the stage space. Here we have the real Prince of Darkness, not Ozzy. Still stunning After all these years

    MrIgorek13

    Axaxa especially Alice is a preacher

    Adam Turner

    OZZY FUCKING OSBOURNE! bow your head boy! ...

  13. j.v. adkins

    Desecration.

  14. jadams2768

    Saw this tour live

  15. tollyn2456

    my bands favorites
    1-slipknot
    2-alice cooper
    3-slayer
    4-mettalica
    5-kiss

    Julian Morales

    And Black Sabbath lol

  16. Roderick de Leon

    Metallica should cover this song.

  17. Shawn Fairholm

    Amazing song...19 years later this song is still prevalent and out world is still a Brutal Planet!!!

  18. paulyabe

    I can kinda see how this song may have had a similar type of effect on a teenager as Second Coming/Ballad had on me 48 years ago. Biggest difference being, back then it all hadn't been done before. LITD & Killer came out when FM radio was brand new.

  19. Fabien L'amour

    Best frontman ever. One of HIS kind!!!

  20. Johnny Football

    One of the three Godfathers of Punk Rock (Fuck the Ramones and the Sex Pistols it all began with The MC5's, The Stooges, and The Alice Cooper Band,.) The first Glam Rocker, Shock Rocker, (despite what Geine Simmons would want you to believe.) the first person to give people a Hellacious bang for their buck, and the first Rock and Roll villain,. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is Alice Cooper.

  21. Jasmyn Kamyly

    Who is that guy on 3:24 ? Anyone knows?

  22. Antony Andre' / renaissance artist and artisan

    Gave us positive direction when others could not. Showed us values in a gothic way...at our level and proved adults were loosing their teaching skills.

  23. Antony Andre' / renaissance artist and artisan

    It's cool to see millennials as new listeners to Cooper... Vincent takes prisoners...since the late 60s ...that's 50 years of battle and conquest...he is 69 now days and playing better than ever...family on stage, musical opportunities for young pro players on his stage.

  24. Leo Blin

    Alice Cooper is the best, oh my God, that was fuckin georgous live!!!!!!!!

  25. MrAdammassacre

    i saw this tour was fuckin INSANE!!

  41. EsGibtEin LebenVorDemTod

    Nimmt der eigentlich wirklich keine Drogen?

    Thor Ase

    Kann man sich kaum vorstellen ne ?
    vllt seine Mutter als sie schwanger war ;D

  42. PoiZon Rock

  43. Freddy King

    I was there in Austria - this was his best Tour, his Voice was AWESOME and Eric Singer kicked Ass!

  44. Anyoldion

    Unbelievable how much energy, character, poetry, style, and sheer class you find in this performance.
    This is real art at the highest level, the work of a genius.

  45. First Last

    "My function is to draw you in"-how satanically quaint

  52. Yasmina Golomb

    goodness the feeling on this song. Love you Alice<3<3<3<3

  53. Miner 79'er

    Alice Cooper getting all Christian on us is the scariest he has been!

  54. Real Vialdis

    What I admire in Alice cooper is that even changing the sound continues with that husky voice, his songs always have the quality.
    At this point the Aerosmith were doing commercial shit while the Alice Cooper went to the industrial rock as not repair these artists of the same generation who took such different directions in their music?

    Alice Cooper is a true artist ...

    And the themes of the lyrics!, I do not see the Aerosmith to write about, just about love and futility is so evident the quality of work of Alice Cooper ...

    I'm the only compare to see how artists of the same generation change so much, some to better others worse, some to making quality music, and others only to fill their pockets

    Miner 79'er

    I love that throaty raging angry voice. Like Marilyn Manson in a way.

    Chico Demonio

    I like Alice and Aerosmith, both are true artists for me

  55. Paul Davies

    Wot a tune

  56. deepvoodoo

    He should have had a woman sing the, "this world is such perfection..." part.

  57. «-·'¯'·.Ðꧧï©å‡êÐ ©ø®þ§ê.·'¯'·-»

    I miss this era, really really industrial sounding.

    Maria Theoharis

    +«-·'¯'·.Ðꧧï©å‡êÐ ©ø®þ§ê.·'¯'·-» Me too! All the bands tried to sound like NIN and the rest back then!

    Benedikt Saurer

    Maria Theoharis This Album sounds nothing like NIN! Its great!

  58. alexander white

    You need a dj

  59. Ruben Ramos Jr.

    Man, the level of originality is out of this world. Alice Cooper Group and solo Alice where revolutionary. The best part is that the Coop never took himself seriously, it was all pure fun stage fun, yet he still managed to be scary at times, while always writting amazing rock and roll.

  60. christine blin

    James F. Goldstein at the beginning ? 

    Beatnikzombie

    @christine blin It's his prop manager, Pat.

  61. bill hayes

    one of my favorite Alice Cooper songs.

  62. Yasmina Golomb

    An Autor666:

    This is not such a good comparative!
    Alice Cooper is singing like he is: Crazy and brutal
    Rammstein is German and sings good but really normal.
    Alice Cooper is famoust for his way he present and can sing very good as he is!

  63. buddyontheweb

    Ministryesque

  64. MrLive2win

    Alice has such great stage presence.

  65. G V

    Great Band :) these Musicians Rock.

  66. Greg Southard

    There are at least 19 positive biblical references in this song. Awesome!

    Ibleedwhiskey Planet1

    I personally don't give a shit what someone's beliefs may be, Alice to my knowledge by the way is a Christian. Who the fuck should care as long as he puts out high quality metal like this? If you have a problem with it it's for damn sure your problem, because I (and many people like me I'm sure) don't give a fuck.

    Rockarollr

    Alice Cooper’s father was a pastor. I’m quite sure that influenced him in many ways over the years.

    DrZaius75

    Cooper is a born again Christian. He credits his faith with helping him quit drinking. Brutal Planet is very much a Christian rock record. It just so happens to also be a good record.

    Brickhawkman

    These are Warnings 2 Get Ready
    Nibiru is here The planet of Destruction.

    Lynn Rodriguez

    Greg Southard
    But he is not modeling any biblical references. He’s modeling things of Satan! If he truly was saved and believed, he’d stop his distorted shows and songs! It’s so easy to be fooled and “want” to believe what you want to believe.

  67. Qwazier3

    Alice, you still have it. Now I'm going to have to go see you again. 

  68. hawg427

    Saw Cooper's Welcome to my Nightmare show. Absolutely the best.

  69. MrMegaFredZeppelin

    Alice Cooper has still got it for sure. ROCK ON!!!!!!

  70. Lionel Hugues Capet

    Thanks !
