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

To the center of the earth
Or anywhere god decides
Full of fever pulling forth
We hear our call as all
And to the center of the earth
As if written in
And dna is reaching out
To your frequency
I want to live
And don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
All in prayer
Prayer in all
All are scared
Scared of all
Black rooms are calling
To men in leather coats
White labs are cooking
Up the silver ghost
The glass migrates under
Her translucent skin
And all the spiders wonder
What we’ve got us in
All is you
You are all
All with you
You in all
I want to live
I don’t want to die
I want to live
I want to try
So, it’s all very obtuse
Because it’s all like, like, I don’t know
So, like, I started thinking
That everything I operate on
Is based on what I believe god was telling me to do
God could be my intuition or whatever
But I always assume
I always assume that the voice I hear is the voice of god
Then I started thinking
What if I’m insane
So I’m operating on the premise
That I’m hearing the voice of god
Or what I perceive to be god speaking to me
Or through me
But maybe I’m completely in…
So all my…
Demagoguery in my life about me thinking that my life has importance
My, my..
Thinking that my life has importance
My, my, my thought of it
And the fact that I believe that I’m following my intuition
Which in and of itself may be completely false
So then I started freaking out thinking…
Of itself may be completely false
And again this creature that believes that he’s acting upon
Heavenly intuition, but meanwhile he’s totally rampant
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
And I started thinking maybe this is the cause
Of all the negativity against…
So beats the final coda
Of our vinyl storm
One more cherry cola
To lift up her dead arms
A dream of soft focus sunsets
Filters through the din
We are losing contact
As she dials it in
She can hear glass calling
Or is it someone that looks like him
She eyes TV reflection
And nods a knowing look
She says it doesn’t matter
She’d never liked her looks
I have seen a thousand fractures
I have seen everything
Cause knowing is its own answer
Love something in a book
There’s not much left to ponder
Not much left to cook
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders
As they crawled up inside her
As she counted the spiders, oh

We dismiss
The backroads
And ride these streets
Unafraid
Resigned to
Scraping paint
From our bones
Unashamed
No more the eye upon you
No more the simple man
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
All is never shown
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
And in my prayers
I dream alone
A silent speech
To deaf ear
If you want love
You must be love
But if you bleed love
You will die love
No more the lie upon you
Cast in stone and autumn shade
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have sensed
We won’t make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Before the rites of spring
Come to mean all things
A little taste of what may come
A mere glimpse of what has gone
Cause for the moment we are free
We seek to bind our release
Too young to die, too rich to care
Too fucked to swear that I was there
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
Desolation yes
Hesitation no
As you might have guessed
We won’t make it home
Desolation yes
Hesitation no

Radio, play my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
Radio
Radio, please don’t go
Radio
I peer through curtains on empty streets
Behind a wall of caller I.d.
No one’s out there
To hear if I care
About the troubles in the air
As I of the mourning now come
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I’m home to die on my own
As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, don’t you know
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
I’ve blown the dust off my guitars
In the attic with the stars
I read your letters to feel better
My tears upon the fading ink
Cause I of the mourning now come
Pick up where my thoughts left off
Cause I’m home to die on my own
As my radio plays my favorite song
Radio, radio
Radio, I’m alone
Radio, radio
Radio, please don’t go
I sit in the dark light
To wait for ghost night
To bring the past alive
To make a toast to life
Cause I have survived
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want
What is it you want to change
What is it you want to change
Radio, radio, radio, radio
Radio, radio, radio, radio

What is it you want
What is it you want to change

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

Twilight fades through blistered avalon

The sky’s cruel torch on aching autobahn

Into the uncertain divine

We scream into the last divide

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Sheila rides on crashing nightingale

Intake eyes leave passing vapor trails

With blushing brilliance alive

Because it’s time to arrive

You make me real

You make me real

Strong as I feel

You make me real

Lately I just can’t seem to believe

Discard my friends to change the scenery

It meant the world to hold a bruising faith

But now it’s just a matter of grace

A summer storm graces all of me

Highway warm sing silent poetry

I could bring you the light

And take you home into the night

You make me real / lately I just can’t seem to believe

You make me real / discard my friends to change the scenery

Strong as I feel / it meant the world to hold a bruising faith

You make me real / but now it’s just a matter of grace

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

All your seven dreams

Are closer than you believe

As your things come undone

See you are the only one

Flower, seize the hour, the day away

Waiting, waiting for your way, away

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

What you wait for

Flower, the pain will wash away, away

When the sunshine climbs through your window

Into your bed

When you wake up you’re away

Throwing your life away

Someday, sorry coming home

Sorry, snail

Yeah, live in my home

Flower, seize the hour

Flower, away

What you wait for

Flower, taste the sunshine

Flower, taste the sunshine

I’m never coming back
I’m never giving in
I’ll never be the shine in your spit
I disconnect the act
I disconnect the dots
I disconnect the me in me
And you’re mistaken, it’s you that’s faking
Living and breathing and dying too
This message is for anyone who dares to hear a fool
You can’t bring me back, you can’t bring me back
Cause I give it all back to you
Thru sacred alleys, the living wrecks
Wreak their havoc upon this world
The disenchanted, the romantics,
The body and face and soul of you is gone down that deep black hole
Destroy the mind-destroy the body-but you cannot destroy the heart
And you, you make me so I need to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need you love to disconnect
To runaround kids in get-go cars
With Vaseline afterbirths and neon coughs
Galaxies full of nobodies
Giving us the farewell runarounds
I took a virgin Mary ax to his sweet baby Jane,
Lost my innocence to a no good girl,
Scratch my face with anvil hands,
And coil my tongue around a bumblebee mouth
And I give it all back to you
No way, I don’t need it, I don’t need your love to disconnect
And you make it, so real, I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect
And you make it so real
I don’t need your love to disconnect
No way to disconnect

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I send my echo out

To get your love without

Obscured reflections of

My love

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I’ll save a prayer for you

So lost and longing too

Be dragged through dirty streets

Wrapped up in clean white sheets

And if you think they’ll watch you now

You should know they won’t

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

I send my echo out

To get your love without

Obscure reflections of

Of my secret love

Force down the words about

To get your love without

Obscured reflections of my love

And I’m just trying to talk to you

Between the raindrops

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

Rain falls on everyone

The same old rain

And I’m just trying to walk with you

Between the raindrops

And I’m just trying to walk with you

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

We’re the metal, in their droning schemes

Could you understand

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
