Kneel down ye sinners, to
Streetwise religion
Greed's been crowned the new King
Hollywood dream teens
Yesterday's trash queens
Save the blessings for the final ring-

Take a ride on the Wild Side
Wild side

I carry my crucifix
Under my deathlist
Forward my mail to me in hell
Liars and the martyrs
Lost faith in The Father
Long lost in the wishing well

Take a ride on the Wild Side
Wild side

Fallen Angels
So fast to kill
Thy kingdom come on the wild side
Our father
Who ain't in heaven
Be thy name on the wild side Holy Mary
Mother may I
Pray for us on the wild side
Wild side. Wild side

Name dropping no-names
Glamorize cocaine
Puppets with strings of gold
East L.A. at midnight
Papa won't be home tonight
Found dead with his best friend's wife

Take a ride on the Wild Side
Wild side

Gang fights
Fatal strikes
We lie on the wild side
No escape
Murder rape
Doing time on the wild side
A baby cries
A cop dies
A day's pay on the wild side
Wild side, wild side
Tragic life on the wild side
Wild side, wild side
Kickin ass on the Wild Side

    Actually, i believe "Wild Side" is a sick and twisted randition of the Lord's Prayer. Nikki Sixx wrote it after a local Catholic schoolgirl recited the Lord's Prayer. Nikki scribbled some notes down about it, and "Wild Side" was born. It's all in his book, The Heroin Diaries. Page 51 and 52 to be exact..
    I could be wrong..but...

    This song is about the many threats and the mentality that is over on the wildside.and by wildside they mean very bad neighborhoods and living your life both reckless and ruthless not caring about what may happen to you and living your life day by day.also the thrill of it all.
