and I'm being goofy as usual. I know in my case, I may seem overly critical because jack's various crews have set the bar rather high. :)

I've actually shied away a lot of times from expressing my feelings about the DW because, for one thing, I know that it bothers some of the people who do love the band. But the other reason is because up until recently, I hated to admit those feelings even to myself. I think everyone here knows, more than they would probably like to, how crazy I am about Jack's music. The fact that I don't love this band really, really bothers me.  I do enjoy certain aspects of it-- Some of the music is killer, and I do love almost every song that includes his vocals.  But other elements of the band just leave me cold, and you have no idea how much that upsets me sometimes. 

 

That said, I will be there on the rail when they tour. And the element that leaves me cold had just better not block my view of the drumkit.

Both songs are fantastic, especially Rough Detective! Instantly in love with that song!
So, i took a shot at the lyrics, and here's what i could make of them. (I couldn't quite catch some of the lines well, so they might sound silly. i've enclosed them between two ?'s. Go ahead and correct anything you think is wrong!)


You're an unusual suspect, now, (?)admit it right(?)
The kind of men cannot recolect or forget at night
You're the rough detective with the smokey eyes
The person you are after is the other guy

The apprentice is the master, and the (?)cop's the crown(?)
You hear me laughin' in the backround

Don't make me run, baby
Don't make me run, no, no
Don't make me run, baby
Don't make me run, no, no

Well,
I make you re-tell you story now, just to trip you up,
(?)This mirror is reflective only when you're tired(?)
Your incentive's defective when your (?)cock's on fire(?)
I got no perspective when i'm tricking a liar, now.
You're so surprised, you're hypnotized, it's just so hot.
Well, i'm the rough detective on a glory ride.

You keep going faster so I slow it down,
You hear me laughing in the backround.

Don't make me run, baby
Don't make me run, no, no
Don't make me run, baby
Don't make me run, no, no

(Slide solo)
What's happening?
What's happening?
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Oh, slow down, oh oh oh
I can't hold it any longer, i can't hold it anymore

She looks right at me and laughing, she's laughing.
She looks right at me and she's laughing at me.
(Don't make me run, baby)
She looks right at me and she's laughing at me.
(You're so surprised, you're hypnotized, it's just so hot)
Ohhhh

Open up (that's enough) is getting a lot of radio play. The more I hear it the more I like it.

ooo...thanks! I made a few small corrections - or at least how I hear them.
