Artist and title?
Google = Cheating

1.Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber
Why I'm here, I can't quite remember
The surgoen general say's it's hazardous to breathe

2.Swing on the spiral of
Our divinity and
Still be a human

3.I’m talkin’ about hard stuff
If everbodys still around, fluff and ease, if
So far out my mind

4.Fire always makes it better
With style and aplomb

5.Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can

6.I’ll give you black sensations up and down your spine
If you’re into evil you’re a friend of mine
See my white light flashing as I split the night

7.The girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus round her neck
Swinging to the music

8. You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key

Yep, I noticed the metal theme too

Only ones I knew were Black Sabbath and AC/DC

[edit: Ok I took bits of the last few songs through my player to balance out the metal a bit (be warned, a couple might be a little obscure, but I tried to stick with "hits" or whatever...

9. Well I call it like I see it,
And you could never be it,
Your eyes are always closed
You can’t see beyond your nose

10. This is a place where eternally
Fire is applied to the body
Teeth are extruded and bones are ground
Then baked into cakes which are passed around.

11. So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through

12. And half and hour later we packed up our things
We said we’d send letters and all those little things
And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same
It seemed they’d already forgotten we’d came

13. Time alone is good, I spend my days in the city,
Dirty neighborhood, you know you’ll never convince me,
So I sold the town away, I couldn’t wait to forget you,
I was killed in half a day, I hadn’t time to regret you,

14. Yes, he's tired of fighting in this town
All the suffering and vice
He wants to fall in love
Maybe settle in and live a life

15. Tell me do you think it’d be all right
If I could just crash here tonight
You can see I’m in no shape for driving
And anyway I’ve got no place to go

11. Circle Game...written by Joni Mitchell

~ Have been putting all my old vinyl to CD and listening to Tom Rush's
version, who imho, is one of the all time best to interpret Joni.
Tom Rush's Circle Game album is one of them. ~

Lets try some more... some of these will be really obscure

16. He's too sick for breakfast
The car wouldn't start
The train was really full
And his girlfriend had a boyfriend.

17. When it bends you try to walk the straight line
Something more for less, but in the meantime
It changes shape, it shifts, it takes you over
It's just a warning sign.

18. 12 more floors, your eyes and mine
Are all I need to come clean
or should I wait for the lobby, spare the lives
Of some 26 nervous eyes?

19. Why does it feel like night today?
Something here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I've got left.

20. As a child I had a dream
I saw a bird with broken wings
I woke up

21. Won't drink, won't smoke
Won't get home at a hundred o'clock
Nobody's gonna satisfy me
Except you and the baby and a colour TV.

22. Smiling as the shit comes down
You can tell a man by what he has to say
Everything gets turned around
And I will risk my neck again, again.

23. I know your name, I heard you call
A distant voice behind the wall.
"But something stands in our way"
She said, she said.

24. And I'd give it all away
Just to have somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone to come home to.

17. The Tea Party - The Writing's On The Wall
19. Linkin Park - Papercut

And, on a different note (no pun intended):

25. This could be the very minute
I'm aware I'm alive
All these places feel like home
