"From The Inside" as written by and Elliott....
I am bad, I am evil
I am winter, I am pain
I'll mess up your life
I'll beat up your wife
I'll lose all your friends
And I'll win in the end

So you play the Joker
And I'll play the clown
And I'll laugh while you're up there
And I'll laugh when you're down
Though your screams break the silence
Oh, they won't make a sound
Na na na na na na na

I will rise, I will take you
I will break you, never let you go
I'll shoot through your veins
I'll drive you insane
I'll poison your breath
And I'll love you to death

So you be the joker
And I'll be the clown
And you'll laugh when you're up there
But you'll cry when you're down
Though your screams break the silence
Oh, they won't make a sound
Na na na na na na na

So you be the joker
And I'll be the clown
And you'll laugh when you're up there
But you'll cry when you're down
Though your screams break the silence
Oh, they won't make a sound
Na na na na na na naaa

    General CommentThis song is a drugs monologue to its user. It details all the things it will do to you ("I'll mess up your life I'll beat up your wife I'll lose all your friend" ). A "joker" is a fool, good for a laugh, but you don't want them around: a good description of a drug user. The song is very dark, telling us time and time again that the final result of drugs is your life: ("And I'll win in the end" "I'll laugh when your down" "And I'll love you to death")

    General Commentthis song could also be applied to ex leppard members willis and clark.
    as an adrenalize b-side, i guess it might have been written around the time steve clark died....
