01. Take Me Away

Lyrics by Eric Bloom, Aldo Nova
Strange shapes light up the night
I've never seen 'em though I hope I might
Don't ask if they are real
The men in black, their lips are sealed

Fantasy fills my mind
To leave this place before my time
Release myself from earthly care
My dream may be your nightmare

[Chorus:]
I turn my hopes up to the sky
I'd like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away
Come on take me away

Come here girl close to me
A thousand stars your eyes can see
First one we see tonight
I wish I may I wish I might

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

I lift my eyes and say
Come on take me away


02. Eyes On Fire

Lyrics by Gregg Winter
At the stroke of midnight staring at the phone
For the millionth time I'm all alone
I'm the guy she turns to when her lovers leave
I'm the wild card she's got up her sleeve
But she don't look at me
With eyes on fire glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes burning with love and desire

I'm like a long lost brother, I'm closer than a friend
The only one on whom she can depend
She thinks I'm sweet and gentle, she thinks the world of me
But late at night I'm not the one she needs
She never looks at me
With eyes on fire glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes burning with love and desire

Don't you don't you see I'm cryin' out loud
Can't she tell I need her now?

She never looks at me
With eyes on fire glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes burning with love and desire
With eyes on fire glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes burning with love and desire
Eyes on fire Hungry eyes ...


03. Shooting Shark

Lyrics by Donald Roeser, Patti Smith
Well I'm up there beside the magic man
And he layed some tricks for me
He said you do need help my friend
I whispered, obviously

He laid a spread of Jacks and Queens
And he begged me take my pick
But every face that had your face
I cried out, I am sick

[Chorus:]
Sick of hauling your love around
Want to run my train alone
But the engine tracks straight through your heart
And weighs me like a stone
Oh it's a hard love to love you it takes up all my time
Having you so familiar like past lives and nursery rhymes

So I gave away the pictures and your golden ring
And the phone calls you sent me and the silver birds that sing
Then the man he told me something that really brought me down
Your things were blown away it's true but you were still in town
Chorus:
The magician left a message, it flashes when I hide
Accept the chains of loving,
Accept the rails remove yourself from her side
Do without her love

As I lay back in the speeding train, I keep it by my side
I could mail a letter to you but I still have my pride

[Chorus]

Three times I've sent you back from me three times my boat's gone dry
And three times I've seen the shooting shark lighting up the sky
Oh it's a hard love to love you babe it takes my breath away
The fourth time round is the last time round there's nothing else to say


04. Veins

Lyrics by Roeser, Richard Meltzer
I open my eyes from a dreamless night
With a sense of dread you could cut with a knife
Still I'm thinking that maybe I killed somebody
Never know, never know when
Might have killed somebody

Veins in my eyeballs
Damage that I've done
Veins on the stairways
Veins in my skull

I visit my friend
We have a fight
I'm drinking his whiskey
I'm wanting his wife
Then the image goes black,
Did I kill somebody
Cause there ain't no clues,no clues
That I killed somebody

Veins in my eardrums
Banging at my door
Veins in my brainwaves
Veins on the floor

I get the shivers and I've got the shakes
People screamin' my name
like there's no mistake
Can't believe it's true
That I killed somebody
But I just don't know,don't know
Did I kill somebody

Veins on the sidewalk
Veins know the score
Veins in my mind, ohhhhhh
Veins evermore...


05. Shadow Of California

Lyrics by Joe Bouchard, Neal Smith, Sandy Pearlman
Beneath the freeway at the cloverleaf junction
The symbol of good luck eminates darkness
The shadow will grow to cover California
Somewhere on the road from San Bernadino
Its future is stirring the past from that pass

Speed is the game in the shadow of kings
Where the company of angels fly
Their fear at the crossroads of what's in their future
Down in the darkness on the highways of night
With no love from the past

[Chorus:]
Night makes right, the symbol remains
Into the darkness must must for the pains
In the shadow of California

Revolution by night, in this future
Kings of the shadow on the highway of night
From San Bernadino these angels are racing this night to your city
The host of angels, Los Angeles

[Chorus]


06. Feel The Thunder

Lyrics by Bloom
Slicing through the night Three riders
Perched on American steel Riders with no name
Time cannot reveal riders with no names

On October 31'st many years ago
Three friends went out for a ride
For it was a famous party night
And to party was to get high
They loaded up on beer and cocaine
And they started their bikes with a roar
They couldn't have known that on this night
They were beginning their longest tour

[Chorus:]
Feel the thunder of the midnight ride
They're torn asunder by those who died
Feel the thunder of the midnight ride
They're torn asunder by those who died

On to their favorite road they rode
Leather horsemen ridin' three wide
Their metal beasts howled in the night
And dark specter was their guide
They came around the curve too fast
Only time for a scream
A fiery crash of chrome and steel
Was the beginning of the longest dream

[Chorus]

As their fates decreed that night
Their souls must be tried
Now you can hear them every Hallows Eve
Forever doomed to ride

Slicing through the night Three riders
Perched on American steel Riders with no name
Time cannot reveal riders with no names

[Chorus]


07. Let Go

Lyrics by Bloom, Roeser, Ian Hunter
Hell bent for leather on a moonlit night
There's a hot wind blowing better hold on tight
To your soul

Blue fire rising up from the deep
Burning the world just when it's trying to sleep
So let go
Let go let go let go

B.O.C.
You can be whatever you want to be
You got the power, we got the key
Yeah, B.O.C.

You're a rebel and you got no friends
We all know that it all depends
On rock and roll

Do you feel like they're keeping you down
Ain't no fun with your feet on the ground
So let go
Let go let go let go

B.O.C.
You can be whatever you want to be
You got the power, we got the key
Yeah, B.O.C.


08. Dragon Lady

Lyrics by Roeser, Broadway Blotto
Out of the smoke of the dawn of man
Out of the ocean across the sand
Reaching forth with an ancient hand
Dragon lady

Out of the flames of a man's desire
A hair raising voice from an evil choir
Raining down like a freezing fire
Dragon lady

She appears mysteriously
You don't take her seriously
Until you're under her spell

[Chorus:]
Dragon lady takes you by the heart
Dragon lady takes you by the heart
You try to run but before you start
Dragon lady's got you by the heart
Dragon lady takes you by the heart
Dragon lady's got you she won't let go

Eternal lightning flashes across the sky
When the dragon lady shows you how to fly
Eternal lightning flashes across the sky
When the dragon lady shows you how to fly

Out of the cage in the center ring
Out of the crowd and straight to the king
Who's out of his mind with a mystical thing
Dragon lady

Out of the dream and into the night
A final look makes you die of fright
No one there in the candlelight
Dragon lady

She appears outragiously
You take her courageously
Until you're under her spell

[Chorus]

Eternal lightning flashes across the sky
When the dragon lady shows you how to fly
Eternal lightning flashes across the sky
And the Dragon Lady's laughing as you cry...


09. Light Years Of Love

Lyrics by Bouchard, Helen Robbins
When we met it was a white hot star
The speed of light between two hearts
It felt like love, it sounds bizarre
But in your eyes I could see so far

Baby baby shouldn't know no fear
Was it an angel who brought us here
Old old songs, but the love goes on
Changing life into a song

It took light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love, of love

Our love is like the shining sea
In salty foam, we can feel so free
Caress the night with our cool skin
In your arms I can be anything

We've got light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love, of love

[Repeat]
