SLANG (Deluxe Edition)

1. Truth? LYRICS

I've been burning
And dousing the flames
I feel the whiplash
Of the backlash on my face
I melt to sleep at night
But I wake to trip the day

Never for you never for me
Would I kiss your feet of clay
I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise

Am I the victim of youth
Is this the truthh
Why don't you tell me
Why don't you tell me

There's no conscience
In charity or shame
The voice deceive me
But believe me its the same
I see the black in white
And the colour in the gray

Better for me better for you
Gonna bleach it all away
I'm still alive and so should I
Soak up the wave of compromise

I see the scars, I hear the lies
So what's the truth
Why don't you tell me

03:08
2. Turn To Dust LYRICS

The concentration drifts
In and out of me
Conversation slides away
Turn and face the change in apathy
Take a rise to fall

Won't you save me
Don't you blame me
I got the feel that I'm gone - Turn to dust

Sentence
Rape me
Segregate me
I got the fear that I am gone - Turn to dust

Slave or sympathy it atrophies
Save but ancient hearts
Hiding scars and knives in symphonies
Still we rise to fall

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

3. Slang LYRICS

Sittin' Dark
Getting taken
'Cause I said
Something lewd in a
Low down accent

Yeah Yeah Yeah
Kinda love those eyes
I wanna get down honey
But I ain't your guy

I'll rap'n ruch
'N jam it up
But count me out
Cause all I ever wanna get is slang

Slang with me - I don't wanna get my hands dirty
Slang with me - I just wanna get soakin' wet
Slang with me - I don't wanna get my hands dirty
All I ever wanna get is slang

What's affectin' my condition
What's about to knock you down
Said wrapped 'n bound and a goddamn
I'd love to get connected
But it's outta my hands

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

It's my intention to be your obsession
It's my obsession to be your addiction

[Repeat Chorus]

02:41
4. All I Want is Everything LYRICS

I don't know how to leave you
And I don't know how to stay
I've got things that I must tell you
That I don't know how to say

The man behind these empty words
Is crying out in shame
Holding on to this sinking ship
When nothing else remains

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel of your touch
But all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

It's hard to hold your head up
When you're kneeling down to pray
And the talking dooesn't come easy now
When the words get in the way
And if you could see what's going on
Behind these private eyes
The truth would look so easy now
But I'm running out of lies

[Repeat Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

You think the shadow of doubt
Is hangin' over my head
It's just an angel whose wings hide the sun
And it's myself I betray
I can not wish this away
Took my chance now the damage is done

All I want is everything
Am I asking too much?
All I want is everything
Like the feel, the feel of your touch
When all I have are yesterdays
Tomorrow never comes

Ooh, oooh
Ooh, oooh

04:16
5. Work it Out LYRICS

Day and night black and white
You take it all for granted
I'm the one who turns you on

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
I'm the one who's holding on

It's alright to be wrong
All we need's a little time
But nothing here can last that long

We show the world a brand new face
It's taken us all this time
All this time
All of this doubt
We get to work it out
All of this doubt
We get to work it out

Yesterday lost your way
Still looking for an answer
I'm the one who holds the key

When you don't know where you belong
And nothing seems to matter
I'll unlock this mystery

[Repeat Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

[Repeat Chorus]

All of this doubt
Day and night - Black and White
Take it all for granted
We get to work it out
I'm the one who turns you on
Turns you on - Turns you on
All of this doubt

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
We get to work it out
I'm the one who's holdin' on
Holdin' on - Holdin' on

04:41
6. Breathe a Sigh LYRICS

Let me down slow and easy
Cause there ain't nothin' I can do
I hope and pray my faith won't leave me
When it comes down to me and you

Try a little tenderness
I die a little
For a long lost sweet caress

You lyin' next to me
Fulfilled some destiny
I wanna cry
But I breathe a sigh

Just a little bit of letting go
I don't want you to know
I wanna cry
But I breathe a sigh

Overflow of emotion
And a hurt that'll never heal
If you close the door forever
The fate of pain is sealed

Try a little tenderness
I die a little
For a long lost sweet caress

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

I more than long for your affection
I tell you know that ain't so
Not even gentle persuasion
Is ever gonna let me go
Won't you let me breathe

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

04:10
7. Deliver Me LYRICS

I'm tired of feeling hateful
I'm tired and I can't breathe
So tired that I would be grateful
If you close the door when you leave

That's me diggin' my heels in
That's me with the holy ghost
'Scuse me but I don't remember
Where were you when I needed you most

And I'm tied to the sky
As you claw at my eyes
And I wait for the flood
I swim in blood
As I crawl to my knees
And I beg your disease
Taste the ice on your breath
As you catch your death

I close my eyes
Embrace me
Deliver me

Hey you the voice of reason
Hey you are you listening to me
It's you that I can't believe in
I don't buy what I don't see
Say good-bye 'cause I don't need

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]

I close my eyes
Embrace the wave
Abandon me

Save the day
That I won't see
Deliver me

04:05
8. Gift of Flesh LYRICS

I am all destiny, a trade
A grain of sand
I am the lesson to be learned
I take the throat of innocence
And leave decay
I stain the way for all to see

No fear, no voice, no reason
In God no guiding light
When all the guilt that's in your head
Turns its back and plays for dead
You scorch the earth and torch the sky
Conscience low with head held high

Indulge and multiply
And sacrifice
As lack of breath chokes underground
Divulge degenerate
The darker side
From windows watch the screaming sky

[Repeat Chorus]

When all the guilt that's in your head
Turns its back and plays for dead
You scorch the earth and torch the sky
Conscience low with head held high

From all the truth comes all the shame
The curse of flesh just takes its aim
On hallowed ground and tortured sky
Walk in fear with spirits high

03:53
9. Blood Runs Cold LYRICS

I heard this line one time 'bout tryin' to save the world
But have you ever tried to save yourself
A wide-eyed suicide drive
Remains a fake
As if you'd ever
Ever go and make the same mistake
Strung out as the night comes crawlin'
Your halo of thorns is fallin'

Blood runs cold
I feel it in my bones
But you don't know your time is up
Blood runs cold

Somebody somewhere is screamin' out the words
But do they ever really ease the pain
I guess what I'm trying to say
Is whose life is it anyway because livin'
Living is the best revenge
You can play
This fall from grace
I see your face
It's over

[Repeat Chorus]

From you love was kind
Resolved left scarred and blind
Wasted and naked in the wings

Denying twist of fate
Demanding Heaven's gate
Lying in wait above the wind

Strung out as the night comes crawlin'
Your halo of thorns is fallin'

[Repeat Chorus]

Blood runs cold
Blood runs cold

04:29
10. Where Does Love Go When It Dies LYRICS

Could you ever steal a prayer to deny your God
Could you ever buy your love and not count the cost
Could you ever take a life when all was lost
And would it ever be enough

Could you bite the hand that feeds you and then ask for more
Could you kiss the wound that bleeds spit it on the floor
Could you open up your heart then close the door
And would it ever be enough

Every word you whisper
All the tears you hide
You die for love when it's alive
But where does love go when it dies

If you came across your dream would you walk on by
Hold a candle to the wind and just let it die
And is there room inside your mind for one more try
And would it ever be enough

I watch the time go rushing by it's like an ocean wave
Showing you no mercy throwing dirt upon your grave
You're drowning in the darkness and you're blinded by the light
And there ain't no prayer that's gonna save you now

If you woke up from your sleep blood on your hands
Would you wash the pain away no one understands
There must be someone out there who can help you breathe again
And would it ever be enough

[Repeat Chorus]

04:05
11. Pearl of Euphoria LYRICS

Your price, name the time
The suspect or the crime
The shadow of my gun
Get down or you can run

Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Empty room, turn the key
You're never alone
When you're with me

Temptation, break the vow
Cut flesh from the sacred cow
Unchain the tiger, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire

Soaked in fear, the curtain falls
Religion within these walls
Mystify my soul beliefs
Confession is my release

Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Unchain the tiger, crucify, feed your desire
Pearl of euphoria
Pearl of euphoria

06:20
12. Move With Me Slowly LYRICS

I'm lost in imagination
Still contemplate animation
I just groove on your breathing
I do it all for you

You've got a problem witcha boyfriend
He don't squeeze you right
He got you facedown and waiting, baby
Keep you waiting all night
So do me a favour

Won't you
Move with me slowly
Get too close to me
Move with me slowly
Just like we're meant to be
Just like we're meant to be

Hey say sister
You're dreaming
You got stars in your eyes
A little conscious behavior
Is gonna cut
You down to size

You hear me knocking
So let me in
When your blood runs cold
And your love wears thin
It's over passion
It's under the skin
If love ain't a miracle
It sure ain't a sin
So let me in

Take me to the city
Take me on my knees
Take me anyway
You find me baby
I've got this love disease
And there ain't nothin'
I can do

06:20
13. Truth? Original Version LYRICS

Why don't you tell me what's behind the green door
Why don't you tell me, 'cause I heard it all before
You know the answers, got 'em under lock and key
So why don't you tell me, end this misery

You're a dagger in my side, stripped of all my pride
I listen at you lie
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to make a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
Why don't you tell me the truth

Why don't you tell me, you got things to say
Why don't you do it, gonna throw it all away
Why don't you hear me, when I shout it out so loud
How do you sleep at night with your head up in the clouds

You're the devil in disguise, I'm sick of all your lies
Your hints and alibi's
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to take a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
So I can say I've got a question
Now listen

Can you tell me what the hell is happening
Why the sky is falling
And the heart is calling
And the youth is stalling
And it's over and over again

Come on, come on, come on
You gotta tell me the truth
You don't listen, do ya
The left hand gives
And the right hand takes away
That's the law of the jungle
But you have to learn to play

Why don't you tell me the truth
You better tell me the truth
Come on, why don't you tell me the truth
You gotta tell me the truth

You try with all your might
You never get it right
Can't see the morning light
Was never in your sight

Just like the truth

05:11
14. Burnout LYRICS

Friday night and I crashed your party
Saturday night and I crashed your car
Sunday night when you threw me out
Couldn't believe I even got that far
Look out of your bedroom window
And tell me what you see
Who's that standing in the shadows
Oh baby you belong to me, yeah

Place your bets cause I got a good feeling
Hey over there, are you lookin' my way
Electrified like a shock to the system
You walk right through my DNA

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' hard, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Head over heels and it's making me nervous
Get on my knees and it's making me worse
There's no way out so I pay lip-service
If this thing is bigger than the both of us

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' heart, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

15. Worlds Collide LYRICS

Never gonna die now
Crawling from a wrecked jam, I'm laughing out loud
Angel on my shoulder
Living at the speed of sound
Heavenly distraction
I'm hanging on the edge and spinning out of control
Choose your medication
It's a generation overload

I can see it falling from the sky
Can you feel me
I can hear you calling when you cry
Can you see me
Pain and suffering, your knees are tied
Will you hear me
Everchanging as your worlds collide

Running going nowhere
Take it to the limit then it's payback time
Nothing but a heartache
Waiting at the end of the line
Take a look around, babe
You're looking down the barrel of a loaded mind
Generation landslide
Crawling through the enemy lines

I will be the one your justify
Will you hear me
I will kiss you with a last goodbye

I thought I was the one who could survive
Does anyone get outta here alive
I gotta find the courage, gotta make a change
And start all over again
Taken for a ride against my will
And taking it is always such a bitter pill
Shaken for the sake of it, no more
Gotta get away cause I don't know what I'm doing it for

I can see it falling from the sky
Can you feel me
I can hear you calling when you cry
Can you see me
I will be there when you close your eyes
Will you hear me
Everchanging as your worlds collide

16. Can’t Keep Away From The Flame LYRICS

Lonely, lonely, lonely child
Crystalline and lace
Won't you walk me awhile
Put a smile upon my face

I don't wanna take your love in vain
Gonna keep on coming back again

Beauty leads the full grown child
A rose among the thorns
Like a ray of sunshine
She comes, heaven in my arms

When I see you smilin'
It takes away my pain
Oh, there's no denyin'
Can't keep away from the flame

A thousand Indian summers
Die in desert sands
The moon and lover's shadows
They go slippin' through our hands

I don't wanna take your love in vain
Gonna keep on coming back again

When I see you smilin'
It takes away my pain
Oh, there's no denyin'
Can't keep away from the flame

I don't wanna take your love in vain
Gonna keep on coming back again

When I see you smilin'
It takes away my pain
Oh, there's no denyin'
Can't keep away from the flame

10. Where Does Love Go When It Dies LYRICS

Could you ever steal a prayer to deny your God
Could you ever buy your love and not count the cost
Could you ever take a life when all was lost
And would it ever be enough

Could you bite the hand that feeds you and then ask for more
Could you kiss the wound that bleeds spit it on the floor
Could you open up your heart then close the door
And would it ever be enough

Every word you whisper
All the tears you hide
You die for love when it's alive
But where does love go when it dies

If you came across your dream would you walk on by
Hold a candle to the wind and just let it die
And is there room inside your mind for one more try
And would it ever be enough

I watch the time go rushing by it's like an ocean wave
Showing you no mercy throwing dirt upon your grave
You're drowning in the darkness and you're blinded by the light
And there ain't no prayer that's gonna save you now

If you woke up from your sleep blood on your hands
Would you wash the pain away no one understands
There must be someone out there who can help you breathe again
And would it ever be enough

[Repeat Chorus]

When you're with me

Temptation, break the vow
Cut flesh from the sacred cow
Unchain the tiger, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire

Soaked in fear, the curtain falls
Religion within these walls
Mystify my soul beliefs
Confession is my release

Feed the demon, kiss the flame, feel your desire
Unchain the tiger, crucify, feed your desire
Pearl of euphoria
Pearl of euphoria

So why don't you tell me, end this misery

You're a dagger in my side, stripped of all my pride
I listen at you lie
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to make a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
Why don't you tell me the truth

Why don't you tell me, you got things to say
Why don't you do it, gonna throw it all away
Why don't you hear me, when I shout it out so loud
How do you sleep at night with your head up in the clouds

You're the devil in disguise, I'm sick of all your lies
Your hints and alibi's
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to take a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
So I can say I've got a question
Now listen

Can you tell me what the hell is happening
Why the sky is falling
And the heart is calling
And the youth is stalling
And it's over and over again

Come on, come on, come on
You gotta tell me the truth
You don't listen, do ya
The left hand gives
And the right hand takes away
That's the law of the jungle
But you have to learn to play

Why don't you tell me the truth
You better tell me the truth
Come on, why don't you tell me the truth
You gotta tell me the truth

You try with all your might
You never get it right
Can't see the morning light
Was never in your sight

Just like the truth

14. Burnout LYRICS

Friday night and I crashed your party
Saturday night and I crashed your car
Sunday night when you threw me out
Couldn't believe I even got that far
Look out of your bedroom window
And tell me what you see
Who's that standing in the shadows
Oh baby you belong to me, yeah

Place your bets cause I got a good feeling
Hey over there, are you lookin' my way
Electrified like a shock to the system
You walk right through my DNA

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' hard, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Head over heels and it's making me nervous
Get on my knees and it's making me worse
There's no way out so I pay lip-service
If this thing is bigger than the both of us

If you could just walk for a mile in my shoes
If you don't lose your mind you got no mind to lose

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Sweatin' heart, buzzing like a fly
Like a, like a thief with a water-tight alibi
High hopes are sinking like a stone
I swallow my pride but I'm choking on a fishbone
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

Bang bang gonna shoot you down
I got me a gun but I gotta get a better one
Oh my, I gotta try, so step right up

I'll give you what you want
It's what you need
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
You know I'm gonna give you what you want
And what you need, yeah

15. Worlds Collide LYRICS

Never gonna die now
Crawling from a wrecked jam, I'm laughing out loud
Angel on my shoulder
Living at the speed of sound
Heavenly distraction
I'm hanging on the edge and spinning out of control
Choose your medication
It's a generation overload

I can see it falling from the sky
Can you feel me
I can hear you calling when you cry
Can you see me
Pain and suffering, your knees are tied
Will you hear me
Everchanging as your worlds collide

Running going nowhere
Take it to the limit then it's payback time
Nothing but a heartache
Waiting at the end of the line
Take a look around, babe
You're looking down the barrel of a loaded mind
Generation landslide
Crawling through the enemy lines

I will be the one your justify
Will you hear me
I will kiss you with a last goodbye

I thought I was the one who could survive
Does anyone get outta here alive
I gotta find the courage, gotta make a change
And start all over again
Taken for a ride against my will
And taking it is always such a bitter pill
Shaken for the sake of it, no more
Gotta get away cause I don't know what I'm doing it for

I can see it falling from the sky
Can you feel me
I can hear you calling when you cry
Can you see me
I will be there when you close your eyes
Will you hear me
Everchanging as your worlds collide

Description

The Slang reissue is available in 3 formats: a CD Deluxe Edition and Digital Edition containing the original 11 album tracks re-mastered and original rare bonus tracks made up of demos, alternate versions and mixes with a series of new songs recorded during the time the band was creating Slang. Most of these additional bonus tracks have never been released.

The double CD includes a 26-page booklet with 51 rare photos from legendary photographer Ross Halfin & liner notes from Joe Elliott, which gives insights into the band during this '94-'95 time period.

A special iTunes Digital Edition will have everything from the Digital Edition, plus a further set of additional bonus tracks. A Double Vinyl Deluxe Edition will also be available and will feature the original album, and its own set of exclusive songs.

The band also released a special Slang Video Collection the same day (February 11th) exclusively on iTunes that feature videos from singles “Slang,” “Work It Out,” and "All I Want Is Everything."

Slang was first released in May 1996 and is considered the band’s most underrated album. At the time of its release, the music industry was at the height of the 90s grunge scene and Def Leppard with bands like Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam were dominating the airwaves. Despite this musical shift, Slang charted on the Top Five UK Official Chart and the Top 15 in the US on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, plus the UK rock magazine Q named the project as one of the Top 10 Albums of the Year. As a testament to their music transcending through time, Slang was recognized for its musical departure from the band’s signature sound. The collection incorporated new sonic elements that gave the album a slightly darker introspective mood than their previous releases. As Phil Collen stated in an interview with Metal Hammer UK, “We've all got personal things that have happened during the recording of Slang, and we've just ploughed on and some of it has come out on the record.”
