Motorhead - In The Name Of Tragedy Lyrics



Were you ever lost,
were you ever young,
were you ever safe little brother,
Do you see the sense of the evidence,
are you still part of the struggle,
Did you bang your head,
did you go to bed,
does it still feel pretty funky,
Lay back and dream,
in the death machine,
pity you still think like a monkey,

Bring it up, bring it down til you hit the ground,
Get a rude attitude, turn the world around,
Shall we see, shall we disagree,
Sing it all In The Name of Tragedy,

Did you ever lie,
ever wonder why,
nobody believed you honey,
What a pretty smile,
drive the people wild,
wonder who ran off with the money,
Do you ever change,
is it going to rain,
will it bring you pennies from heaven,
Do you know the score,
are you waiting for,
anxious for the new Armageddon,

Live it up, live it down til we hit the ground,
Cop a rude attitude from the world around,
Shall we see, shall we disagree,
Sing it all In The Name of Tragedy,

Marbles in your mouth,
what's it all about,
do you know the name of the winner,
If I was to go,
would you let it show,
life is not a TV dinner,
If you dream of me,
will you ever see,
do you want a piece of the action,
If I wasn't sure,
would you do it more,
help me to achieve an erection,

Get it up, get it down til you hit the ground,
Get a rude attitude, turn the world around,
Shall we see, shall we disagree,
All In The Name of Tragedy,

Sing it loud, sing it out, make the people shout,
Get it all, get it on, get it sorted out,
Be a seer, be sincere, can you really see,
All In The Name of Tragedy

  92. George Tempest

    All the original set gone now, I am so depressed, I really miss them. The best thing about Motorhead was that my ears were still ringing at least 2 - 3 days after a concert. They certainly wrote a very important part in the history of rock'n'roll!

  93. sofakingdrunk66

    Bring it up, bring it down til you hit the ground,

    Were you ever lost?
    Were you ever young?
    Were you ever safe, little brother?
    Do you see the sense of the evidence?
    Are you still part of the struggle?

    Did you bang your head?
    Did you go to bed?
    Does it still feel pretty funky?
    Lay back and dream
    In the death machine
    Pity you still think like a monkey

    Bring it up, bring it down
    Till you hit the ground
    Get a rude attitude
    Turn the world around
    Shall we see?
    Shall we disagree?
    Sing it all in the name of tragedy

    Did you ever lie?
    Ever wonder why
    Nobody believed you, honey?
    What a pretty smile
    Drive the people wild
    Wonder who ran off with the money

    Do you ever change?
    Is it gonna rain?
    Will it bring you pennies from Heaven?
    Do you know the score?
    Are you waiting for?
    Anxious for the new Armageddon

    Live it up, live it down
    Till we hit the ground
    Cop a rude attitude
    From the world around
    Shall we see?
    Shall we disagree?
    Sing it all in the name of tragedy

    Marbles in your mouth
    What's it all about?
    Do you know the name of the winner?
    If I was to go, would you let it show?
    Life is not a TV dinner

    If you dream of me, will you ever see?
    Do you want a piece of the action?
    If I wasn't sure, would you do it more?
    Help me to achieve an erection

    Get it up, get it down
    Till you hit the ground
    Cop a rude attitude
    Turn the world around
    Shall we see?
    Shall we disagree?
    All in the name of tragedy

    Sing it loud, sing it out
    Make the people shout
    Get it all, get it on, get it sorted out
    Be a seer, be sincere
    Can you really see?
    All in the name of tragedy
