"Rip" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
I'll get down on my knees
I'll do anything I can
I'll even walk upon water
I'll burn the soul of man

I'm so sick with need
I'm so sick with pain
I'll lay before the cross and pray
I'll bleed like holy rain

I've done nothing to you

I'll rip the skin from God's face
I'll say I'm searching for the truth
I'll steal the light from heaven's gate
If it can guide me to you

I'll give life to obsession
I'll give life to disease
I'll give you one last sin or cure
And then I'll do as I please

I've got something for you

    General CommentI've been a Gary Numan fan since I saw him perform "Cars" and "Praying To The Aliens" on Saturday Night Live. I like the mood this music creates although I have no use for the lyrics and lament the fact that Gary has completely lost the pioneering spirit and originality that once drew me to him like a magnet to steel. I like Nine Inch Nails. I bought "Pretty Hate Machine" on CD in April 1990. I don't need Gary pretending to be Trent. What a waste of Gary's time this is - and mine to listen to it.
