Hey kids, rock and roll

Rock on, ooh my soul

Hey kids, it’s no use sleepin’

Lost out, summertime blues

Jump up and die in your blue suede shoes

Hey kids, rock and roll

We’re gonna rock on

Where do we go from here

Which is the way that’s clear

Still looking for that blue jean baby queen

Prettiest girl I’ve ever seen

See her die on my movie screens every day

Rock on

Hey kids, rock and roll

Rock on, ooh my soul

Hey kids it’s no use dreamin’

Lost out and full of doubt

Shut up, cracked out

Hey kids, rock and roll

We’re gonna rock on

Where do we go from here

Which is the way that’s clear

Where do we go from here

Which is the way that’s clear

Still lookin’ for that blue jean baby queen

Prettiest girl I’ve never seen

See her die on my movie screens every day

Rock on

Rock on

Rock on

Rock on

And the cradle will rock

Yes, the cradle, the cradle will rock

I said rock on

Rock on

Everybody wants some

I want some too

Everybody wants some

Hey how about you

I said rock on

Rock on

Rock on

Rock on

Rock on

Rock on

Hey kids, rock and roll

We’re gonna rock on, rock on

To your song

Hey kids, rock and roll

We’re gonna rock on

Rock on

We’re gonna rock on, rock on, rock on

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Now you know where I’ve been

As you sleep, torn I am

Weighted down patiently

Born of love

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Found below, the creatures scream

Stranglehold, a god machine

Begin to tear us out

What is hell

You know I’m, you know I’m not dead

I’m just the tears inside your head

Forever waiting on the ways of your desire

You always find a way

And through it all, into us all you move

Forgotten touch

Forbidden thought

We can never have enough

You know I’m not dead

We all want to hold in the everlasting gaze

Enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway

But underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog

The fickle fascination of an everlasting god

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living in my head

Forever waiting

Forever waiting a cruel death

You know I’m not dead

I’m just living for myself

Forever waiting

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

You know I’m not dead

Kiss and kill me sweetly

Come and drive me home

Drag the miles in me

I am yours alone

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into you

Desire me so deeply

Drain and kick me hard

Whisper secrets for me

Try to go too far

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into…

Please don’t change

Please don’t change at all

Bring your rain

Bring your rain to fall

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself in two

In two

Into you

Come and kiss me sweetly

Ride the telephone

Drag the miles to me

I am yours alone

Yours alone

Yours alone on the telephone

Yours alone looking for a kiss kiss

Yours alone

Time is never time at all

You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth

And our lives are forever changed

We will never be the same

The more you change the less you feel

Believe, believe in me, believe

That life can change, that you’re not stuck in vain

We’re not the same, we’re different tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

And you know you’re never sure

But you’re sure you could be right

If you held yourself up to the light

And the embers never fade in your city by the lake

The place where you were born

Believe, believe in me, believe

In the resolute urgency of now

And if you believe there’s not a tonight

Tonight, so bright

Tonight

We’ll crucify the insincere tonight

We’ll make things right, we’ll feel it all tonight

We’ll find a way to offer up the night tonight

The indescribable moments of your life tonight

The impossible is possible tonight

Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight

This time I need to know

I really must be told

If it’s over

It’s up to you, you know

The things you really want to hold

Are in pieces

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

I’ve got to move it on

I’ve got to sing my song

While I still can

Dispatch the last alarms

Hand out the last few charms

There’s no surprises

Only love

Only love can win

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Only love, yeah

Only love will win

Crashing down

Crashing down again

This time I need to know

I really must be told

That it’s over

I’ve lived my life alone

My every step fortold

To never linger

And yet it haunts me so

What are we letting go

Our spell is broken

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

Crashing down

Crashing down again

Only love, yeah

Only love will be enough, yeah

Only love will win

For every chemical

You trade a piece of your soul

With no return

And who you think you know

Doesn’t know you at all

Their drain is needless

Someday we’ll wave hello

And wish we’d never waved goodbye

To this romance

We’ll drink up every line

And shoot up every word

Till it’s no more

Crashing down

Crashing down my friends

Only love

Only love can win

So cry these tears

We’ll cry as all

We’ve held so long

To fall apart

As the curtain falls

We bid you all goodnight

If I were alive
If I were real
Would you survive
What would you feel
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
As sentimental as our broken dreams
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die to save your soul
Let me die, let me die rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their metal machines
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
If I were dead
Would my records sell
Could you even tell
Is it just as well
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
It’s elemental, to all the rust it brings
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Let me die for rock and roll
Let me die and save my soul
Let me go, let me go rock and roll
Let the world forgive the past
Let all the girls kiss the boys at last
Let me go, let me die rock and roll
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
We’re the metal, in their droning schemes
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Will I survive
Is it up to me
Could you understand
That it’s not yours to keep
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine
Heavy metal, heavy metal machine

The world is a vampire, sent to drain
Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
And what do I get, for my pain
Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Now I’m naked, nothing but an animal
But can you fake it, for just one more show
And what do you want, I want to change
And what have you got
When you feel the same
Even though I know-i suppose I’ll show
All my cool and cold-like old job
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
Tell me I’m the only one
Tell me there’s no other one
Jesus was an only son
Tell me I’m the chosen one
Jesus was an only son for you
Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
And I still believe that I cannot be saved

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself, how do I work this
And you may ask yourself, where is that large automobile
And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house
And you may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was
Water dissolving, and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Carry the water at the bottom of the ocean
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house
And you may ask yourself, where does that highway go
And you may ask yourself, am I right, am I wrong
And you may tell yourself, my god, what have I done
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money’s gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
Same as it ever was
