"Adam In Chains" as written by and Robin Hancock Billy Idol....
Do you want to be hypnotized
All you have to do is move your body
In what ever way feels comfortable for you
Just let yourself sink into the groove
And move
Fix your eyes on a spot
It doesn't matter where
Just fix your eyes on on espot
And begin to relax
Feel your mind and body
Beginning to wind down
Wind down, wind down and relax
If you have any thoughts
Just let them drift through your mind
Like beautiful clouds
Across a clear blue sky
Just through your mind and away from you
Through your mind and away
As you relax
Deeper, deeper and deeper relax
Just let go of stress and tension
Let go of worry and doubt and relax
Imagine a staircase standing in front of you
With ten, wide, safe, stairs
Down, down to a perfect relaxation
Down to peace and contentment
Down towards the happiness that you deserve
And as I count down from ten
Take one step with each number
One step down
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Deeper, deeper, deeper relax
That's it just let go and relax

You've stolen my heart it's true
You see the shape of things to come
Why give up our lives to the brutes and fools
Tear it all apart
You see the shape of things to come
Why? this now girl
Will we kill each other

Like Adam in chains
I want revenge
Like Adam in chains
I want revenge
Adam in chains

They've broken your heart
Ah yeah, they're gonna tear your world apart
Why make up a lie
And believe it's true
Ah, tear it all apart
I know the shape of things to come
Why this now girl
Will we murder each other

Like Adam in chains
I want revenge
Like Adam in chains
I want revenge
Like Adam in chains
I want revenge
Want revenge

In the mind of a madman
There are colour explosions
An eclipse of emotion

Why tear our world apart
Why tear it all apart
Why tear our world apart girl

    Song MeaningThe meaning i think is like clockwork orange.
    They are trying to change a criminal into a good person and reprogramming his brain.

    Cyberpunk album is awesome!

    General CommentI'm not too suprised nobody commented on this one, as the Cyberpunk CD sucked as a whole. This was the only song I liked, the others clearly demonstrate that the once Great Billy Idol had clearly lost his mind during the making of the CD.

    I'm not too sure what the hell the song's about, especially on how the spoken and the sung parts fit together, but I love the song anyway, there's something mellow yet sexy about it at the same time. It has this mysterious edge to it that I don't understand and can't explain, but I love anyway. Great song to add to your MP3 collection.

    General CommentI love this album. In my opinion, the entire album is incredible, not a single song i would skip. Definitely a top 10 for me. I think people get too caught up in that it was different than his other work, and that it didn't sell well, and can let that cloud their opinion of whether it is a great album or not.

    To me i think that this song could be about something like a breakup or a relationship falling apart, but i don't think that is looking deep enough into it. I have a strong feeling it is about something more meaningful, i just have no idea what.

    General CommentI understand why people gave him shit for making Cyberpunk, it was because he'd changed, and people don't like change. They thought he should stay exactly the way he was, whether he wanted to or not, for THEIR entertainment. Well fuck that. I personally like seeing artists evolve and enjoy watching them grow and mature. And I like the Cyberpunk album. It's a fucking mind trip and I still listen to it. This song is specifically good for sex music!

    General CommentWhere the hell do people get off saying that Cyberpunk is a terrible album?? Because it didn't sell all those years ago?? Get a grip. This is one of Billy Idol's best albums I barely discovered it now and it still sounds great and I love that it was released in 93 the music really reflects that decade. One of my favorite reasons Idol is one of my favorite artists is because he kind of always has slight themes of the future in his music and hes always coming up with great new sounds his new Album kings and Queens of the Underground is also excellent.

    Anyways with that all that said to me this song kind of sounds like the person in the song was cheated on and is going through a major break up? It's kind of a sad song but still very sensual but also has the sound that fits with the theme of the album. Its a really great song.

    Idol is one of a kind
