01. I Turned To Stone

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
I was born yesterday
Trouble seemed so far away
Now it seems my friends no longer call
Everything was better then
I can still remember when
I saw the future with a certain glow

So I turned to stone
As I learned to know
When I turned to stone
Tell myself I'm feeling all alone

Many days have passed me by
Celebrate with sunny skies
Still I know I need a helping hand
And the friends I thought I knew
See them change my every view
Now it seems I'm seeing them as they really are

No I turned to stone
As I learned to know
When I turned to stone
Tell myself I'm feeling all alone

I was born yesterday
Trouble seemed so far away...


02. Keeping A Rendevouz

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
Making me warm under the storm
Keeping a rendezvous
Making me warm under the storm
Keeping a rendezvous

I couldn't stand the rain
Without you to keep me dry
You wouldn't stand it
So we'll meet before we start to fly

I've got a thousand miles to fly
But I can make it by the morning light

I haven't seen you girl
So long, it seems like years have gone
Some things can be so good
It happens time and time again

There's nothing new so we can play
I'll be there sooner girl than yesterday


03. Reaper Of The Glory

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
There must be a way up the ladder
'cause I've got to move to the top
I'm seeking the power and the glory
But nobody knows when to stop
They call him the reaper of the glory
When you're searching for somewhere to go
The gun is the key, and it always will be
A powerful friend or a foe

Got no time, my life's mine
Ain't no friend to me
I don't care, I won't wear
My heart on my sleeve
Rain or shine, I don't mind
You don't impress me
I can say, in my way
I don't want to be...

Reaper of the glory, same old story
To be reaper of the glory, same, same story

The injured are lying in the roadside
Who dares means that someone will lose
You fallen like a rock in a landslide
You're hurting yourself it's no use
Call him the reaper of the glory
Searching can make you so cruel
The reaper goes on, as he steps on their bones
He doesn't play by the rules


04. She Used Me Up

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
Oh sweet sixteen when she caught my eye
She made a first time love like an apple pie
I got all choked up when she ran around
She just used me up and she threw me right down
Right down on the ground

I wanted her for my loving plan
But she ran out of town with another man
My friends all knew that she ran around
'Cause she used me up and she threw me right down
Right down on the ground

I was cut up bad when she did her stuff
My heart gave in and my love broke up
I'm a broken man so I play the clown
'Cause she used me up and she threw me right down
Right down on the ground


05. Don't Lay Down And Die

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
Lay down, baby don't lay down and die
Hold on, don't lay down and die for no reason at all
So long, you've had it bad
One day soon, you'll laugh aloud
What you're being so sad
Is it really so bad?

Lay down, won't you show me a life
Shake it, blow it away or it cuts like a knife
Bad times they seem to be yours
Certain times only get through if you open the door
Listen to me, then you might see

You've got it wrong, hold out some more
Build a new hope, don't lay down and die

I said lay down, baby don't lay down and die
Save it, we're always alone so lift up your eyes
Stand on your own,
Be what you are do what is right
Life is your own,
Not for too long if you give up the fight
Listen to me then you might see


06. Apparatus

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
I'll be your Apparatus,
Take me anywhere you go
Anyone won't lower my status
Your eyes will let me know
Oh, oh I need you so bad
Bad luck is all that I have
Baby if you let me be

Hey girl, so come on
I want to be yours, yeah

I will be your apparatus,
I'll take good care of you
You'll find it's me you can trust
All your senses too
I need you so bad
Bad luck is all that I have
Baby if you let me be

I will be your Apparatus,
I can be anything you say
I can paint you a brighter picture
I'll be there when you say
I need you so bad
Bad luck is all that I have
Baby if you let me be


07. Superstar

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
You make a turn to the left
You make a turn to the right
You show your big blue eyes
Beneath the big white light
You send the little girls wild
With your little white lies
You excite the child
Or you hypnotize

You're a star, you're a star
You're a superstar
You're a star, you're a star
You're a superstar
(That's what you are)

Your black automobile
You got your blonde at the wheel
And with a big time roll
You try to settle your soul
Standing mean and wild
You're just a little child
You can never really learn
You've got nowhere to run

You're a star, you're a star
You're a superstar
You're a star, you're a star
You're a superstar
(Hit me one time j.t., please)


08. Change Your Ways

Music & lyrics by Burke Shelley, John Thomas
If you change your ways, I can always tell
You can always come to me
If you change your ways, I can always tell
'Cause the feeling's so unreal

So little girl, I've been waiting
For you to reveal yourself
Your life's been hesitating
So come on make it tonight

If you change your ways, I can always tell
You can always come to me
If you need a friend, I am always there
You can call me and you'll see

If you change your ways, I just seem to know
I can feel it in the air
You can come around, when you're feeling down
If you need me i'll be there

So little girl, I've been waiting
For you to reveal yourself
Your life's been hesitating
So come on make it tonight
Make it tonight,
I can make you feel alright

If you change your ways, you can always come to me
If you change your ways,
'Cause the feeling's so unreal
