    GnR is the undisputed voice of the white trash.

    They are also in the habit of singing allegorical songs.

    So which song do you think reveals their dismal backgrounds best?

    Perfect Crime Lyrics

    (Stradlin / Slash / Rose)

    Kickin' back in the shadows
    Got no need for the light
    Who's sorry now old timer
    Look at how you've spent your life
    Scroungin' for change
    To put some money in your pocket
    My, how scratch does burn
    Laughin' at the suckers as you pissed it away

    But I got the time and I got the muscle
    I got the need to lay it all on the line
    I ain't afraid of your smoke screen hustle
    It's a perfect crime
    Goddamn it it's a perfect crime
    Mother****** it's a perfect crime
    I said it's perfect

    Keep the demons down
    And drag the skeletons out
    I got a blind man followin' me in chains
    I said he's fun to watch
    When the world has stopped
    An I think he's got somethin' to say
    "You wanna **** with me, don't **** with me
    'Cause I'm what you'll be so don't **** with me
    If you had better sense
    You'd step aside from the bad side of me
    Don't **** wit'da bad side o' me
    Stay away from the bad side o' me
    Don't **** wit'da bad side"


    Ostracized but that's all right
    I was thinkin' about somethin' myself


    Call on everybody who's got last rites
    Said it's better
    if you locked 'em away
    Runnin' through the visons
    at the speed of light
    Won't ya let me be
    Mother****** just let me be
    Goddamn it better let me be
    Don't ya know ya better let me be...

    Perfect crime
    Goddamn it it's a perfect crime
    Mother****** it's a perfect crime
    Don't cha know
    It's a perfect crime

    yeah ...
    and what about the real "brownstone"? ;-)

    hey now dont get me booked on the narcotics act ...

    well i must say that Izzy sure had a knack of producing catchy riffs ...
    nightrain ... and rocket queen ... dont cry ... perils of R&R decadence ...

    and sure the Spaghetti Incident (supposedly composed mainly by Slash) was also good ...
    Aint fun ... since i dont have u ...

    er... many votes for Nighttrain.... so, what is that song about?

    guns_n_gore hell raiser


    all come in from the cold
    We come down from the wire
    An everybody warms themselves
    to a different fire
    When sometimes we get burned
    You'd think sometime we'd learn
    The one you love is the one
    That should take you higher
    You ain't got no one
    You better go back out and find her

    i think this could be the theme of next flick of wild west.
    with guitars and a voice.this is the song

    you are one in a million
    you're a shooting star
    you're one in a million
    you know that you are
    maybe someday i'll see you
    before you make us cry
    you know i tried to reach you
