I don't want to settle down
Stop my heart and turn around
Rebel nature, just got to be free
I'm in the right place, right place to be

Washers, dryers, dealers, and souls
Looking into the fire
Flat caps, whippets, lovers, and wives
Balanced out on the wire
And she said
Love is forever babe
Love is a tool
Servant for jesus
A slave for a fool

I look out through love's back door
I escape but not any more
Revelation help me see
I'm in the wrong place, the wrong place to be

Washers dryers dealers and souls
Looking up to rise higher
Flat caps whippets lovers and wives
Balanced out on the wire

And she said
Love is forever babe

Love is a tool
Servant for jesus
Slave for a fool
Love is for worshipped
Love is a test
Love is a firebrand burnin'
A hole in her breast
Love is ...


Washers dryers dealers and souls
Looking into the fire
Flat caps, whippets, lovers and wives,
Balanced out on the wire
And she said
Love is forever babe
Love is a tool
Servant for jesus
Slave for a fool
Love is for worship
Love is a test
Love is the firebrand burning
A hole in her breast
Love is a blossom
Love is a lie
She said be careful boy
This ain't no wild cherry pie
Love is forever, love is forever, love is forever (fade out immediately)

Yes she will be beautiful
And you will be vain
When the honeymoon is over
She will suck out your brain

Give me back my life
Give me back my call
Simply set me free
Stop banging my head on the wall

Put a black hat on me
Take out a voodoo bone
And the scars across my ceiling
They paint a picture to the great unknown

I'm coming unraveled
Spinning out of control
Becoming unstable
It's taking it's toll

And the lamps keeps sliding
Across the kitchen floor
And there's something to remember
Is this the life of a cross-cut saw

And I'm coming unraveled
Spinning out of control
I'm becoming unstable
I'm still paying the toll

Great expectations will have a glitch
Searching for power, may kill the bitch
Theater of pain
Love or lust in vain
Unraveled again!

Give me back my life,
Give me back my call
Simply set me free,
Stop banging my head on the wall

She will be beautiful,
And you will be vain
When the honeymoon is over,
She will suck out your brain

I'm coming unraveled,
Spinning out of control
I'm becoming unstable,
And I can't, I can't let go

Coming unraveled,
Spinning out of control
Becoming unstable
Nobody, nobody knows
I'm coming unraveled,
Spinning out of control
Becoming unstable,
I can't, I can't let go
(instrumental and vocals fade out)

Walking tall, full of tedious charm,
The smoothest (???) in (???)
The mission boys all cross their palms
Don't you know who I am

I guess you miss the lights? huh!
I guess you miss the fame
I guess you miss everybody
Hanging onto your name

Little caesar is prince of the city
???
In this town there's no pity
This man stands alone

I guess you miss the lights - ha!
I guess you miss the fame
I guess you miss everybody
Hanging onto your name

Sometimes when you're all alone
And the blue turns to gray
Better get down on those pinky knees,
And you start to pray

I guess you miss the lights - ha!
I guess you miss the fame
I guess you miss everybody
Kiss-kissing your name

A glimmering???, a twilight star
And so much love for show,
A returning wave from the gallery bar
And share the afterglow

I guess you miss the lights
I guess you miss the fame
I guess you miss everybody
Hanging onto your name
Ha!
I guess you miss the lights
I guess you miss the fame, haha!
I guess you miss everybody
Hanging onto your name

(fade out music and chorus)
I guess you miss the lights
I guess you miss everybody
Kiss-kissing your name

Oh my darling will you come to me
Shaking now just like a willow tree
So tell me what's the story
This track we'll ride to glory
Coming home

Pretty karla and her russian clothes
Clapboard house and a different nose
Love keeps a candle burning
These steel wheels are turning
Back for home

Come in out of the rain
Come out of the night
Out on the midnight train
Midnight train
Come out of the light
Come out of the rain
Riding the midnight train
Midnight train

Moscow lights, well they dim and glow
The taste is sweeter than it's driven snow
So tell me what's the story
This track to ride to glory
Coming home

Come out of the rain, come out of the lights,
Out on the midnight train, midnight train
Come out of the lights, come out in the rain,
Riding the midnight train, midnight train

Oh my darling will you come to me
Shaking now just like a willow tree

Come out of the lights, come out in the rain,
Riding the midnight train, midnight train
Out of the rain, live again, riding the midnight train, midnight train
Come of the lights, into the rain, riding the midnight train, midnight train
One little strange, come back again

Fool's gold, sparkling like the midnight sun
Fool's gold, touch the ivory handles on my gun
(sold out to me? ), charlatans and thieves
(so wrong not to see? ), jokers and the priests?
Fool's gold, stranded on a (point gloss? ) sea
Fool's gold, nothing here and nothing to see
(sold out to me? ), the weasels and the feared
(and it's so wrong not to see? ), the ghosts of the disappeared
All gone away...

Sometimes, when I'm touched by love, by hate, or by the grace of god
Sometimes, in the dark when hope is fading,
Or no longer flies,
I won't sympathize
Spend my time getting high

Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a christmas tree
Tired of living on my own, someone came and take me home

Sometimes, this jungle life is boring, pawing,
Ready for a feast, someone kill the beast
Outside, streets are teeming, breathing heavy,
Ready to explode, my brother's heavy load,
What you reap is what you sow

Someone came to rescue me
Lit up like a christmas tree
Stranded here on my own
Someone came to take me home

Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a christmas tree
When I'm out here on my own, someone came and took me home

Someone came to rescue me, lit up like a christmas tree
Stranded here on my own, someone came and took me home

Don't you really love her, don't you really care
You've been looking forever, how did she get you there

In the middle of madness, when all has gone
In the middle of madness, she walks, she breathes babylon

Isn't she so pretty, isn't she so fine
Haven't you been blessed to hold her all the time

In the middle of madness, when all has gone
In the middle of madness, she walks, she breathes babylon

(can't figure out this part)

Have you found a heaven, try to see the worth,
Looking at the future, she's right here on earth

In the middle of madness, when all has gone
In the middle of madness, she walks, she breathes babylon

In the middle of madness, when all has gone
In the middle of madness, she walks, she breathes babylon

One more day, with a tumble fall,
Down the money pit, with nothing to show
Hey hey yeah
Another twist, in the horror tale
It's an open coffin, that needs one more nail
Smell of money

Maybe I'm a victim, (Soft silk and bamboo?)
Maybe it's the smell of money
Attracts me to you...
Hey hey yeah money

Two clean shirts
I'm out on bail
As the barroom baits
They start to wail
The smell of money

Maybe I'm a victim, (Soft silk and bamboo?)
Maybe it's the smell of money,
that brings me to you

Stretched out across the ceiling
?? Domes shimmer and glow
Golden citadels
While the autumn wind billows and flows

Dancing nights, in the lost and found
Move really nice to that money sound

Smell of money, smell of money,
smell of money, smell of money
I need
I bleed

. . .


Going to Jamaica,
Warm and coral waters flow
There she goes
Sun kissed her body, in this magic feel love grow,
Love grows
Feel like letting go

Hey mr. saturday night
?? right out the hole
It stops in a minute,
It's right down in it
Hey, we're really back on a roll

I don't know why, I don't know why
Feel so good I could die, I could die
Great escape, I'll be there, by the skin of my teeth, on a wish and a prayer
With a head full of hammers, both feet in the grave, I'm gonna stand I'm gonna rise again

Dream time (lavinia??),
Even though the odds are stacked, she's coming back

(moon monkeys barking??) in a bitter chocolate glow,
There she goes, feel like letting go...

Hey, mr. cool jazz nights, let the fever go,
It stops in a minute, I'm down in it
Hey, play it long and slow
I don't know why, I don't know why,
Feels so good I could die, I could die,
With a great escape, I'll be there, by the skin of my teeth on a wish and a prayer
With a head full of hammers, both feet in the grave, I'm gonna stand I'm gonna rise again

With a great escape, I'll be there, by the skin of my teeth on a wish and a prayer
With a head full of hammers both feet in the grave, I'm gonna stand I'm gonna rise again
I've been stricken, I'll be there, by the skin of my teeth on a wish and a prayer, and i'm
Not going down, both feet in the grave, I'm gonna stand I'm gonna rise again.

Dream time (lavinia??)
Feel like letting go.

Hey hey put me in your pocket for a day
Let me hold the rhythm of your sway
Let me steal you with this serenade, serenade
Hey hey, I could see the magic in your eyes,
There's a fire beneath these spanish skies,
Let me steal you with this serenade, serenade

Hey hey, let me mix you up a recipe, here's doctor love to give you therapy
Let me steal you with this serenade, serenade
Out on the beach, blueprint of your soul, with the midnight of the city
A thousand eyes look down from space

Hey hey, put me in your pocket for a day, let me hold the rhythm of your sway
Let me steal you with this serenade, serenade

. . .


I'm not looking to change your mind,
There's a place, call it home
It's no secret, the world unwinds
Maybe now you're not alone

It's just another day
In the life of cowboy joe
Straitlaced to the bone
(this story will not play? )

You take the wheel and play the chance
Suddenly the room's divided
As in the way of true romance
It's always undecided

It's just another day
In the life of cowboy joe
Shipwrecked to the bay
(this story will not play? )

Every time he climbs back up
Smacked down with a dime
It's evens or odds now
Just ran out of time

Love's a struggle, there's a fight
No bone of contention
So unhappy, well here's the bite
That's the mother of invention

It's just another day
In the life of cowboy joe
Strange place to play

It's just another day
In the life of cowboy joe

. . .


Windows are closing, you smell the track
Traffic is heavy
Up riding the rack
Bodies are buried, freeways and wells
Boneyards with vistas
Gateways to hell

When it's all over,
You'll frown and fret
Way down the line
Where no angels tread

Soldiers are gathering, not missing a beat
A poetry reading, while reaping the wheat
Out looking for Venus
She's black marble on ice
Cut to precision
Weighted like dice

When it's all over, You'll frown and fret
Way down the line, where no angels tread
Maybe you'll make it, maybe you won't
The world and his dog, won't care if you don't

When it's all over,
You'll frown and fret
Way down the line, where no angels tread
Maybe you'll make it, maybe you won't
The world and his dog won't care if you don't

When it's all over,
You'll frown and fret
Way down the line, where no angels tread

. . .


*
Try to make some changes really on the line
Given your religion, never ever time
All the jokers laughing, queens upon the floor
Mothers understand it, baby needs some more

Head held up to ransom, by a quick hand and a gun
Just your education, hard to understand
Will the teenage legend make a mark on you
Make a big time status, with a pen we'll stab it through

**
Mother mary could you ever really feel the same
And would you try to understand a wild colonial boy

* Repeat
** Repeat

This Kid's

[No lyrics]

*Cold wide sweet highway the place where we'd all go
Went out like a razor sharp and we'd all let it roll
Let it roll
Let it roll, let it go
Let it roll

**She'd skid up, and we really let it down
Laying it out, let it roll

When these wheels get rolling, let them roll right over you
The time will be sound and I'll always put it through
Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll

**Repeat

*Repeat

**Repeat

. . .


*
Lady love to hang on
Played it like a real intellectual
Sweet sister your still shaking
And your tragedy is never ending
Silver shoes you're wearing
Every window there you've ever stared in
Over my head, over my head

Sidewalks of the city
Every theater there you've ever played
Your comic book impersonations
Louise fazenda and buster keaton
Over my head, so it's all

** out in the street for just one more matinee
Yes, your vaudeville carries on
So put a smile in front your man can see
Yes, your vaudeville carries on


** repeat
* repeat

. . .


Tell me now and I'll understand
Does venus hold you in the palm of her hand
Has her blackness touched your very heart
She'll smile sweetly as your world falls apart

*
And I just can't quit it babe
I just can't stand the pain
And I just can't quit it babe
I keep running back again

Little by little piece by piece
Your defenses have all slipped away
And real beauty's such an elusive thing
Somewhere down the line you'll have to pay

Repeat *

Oh no, it's such a cold, cold feeling
Cuts your body to the bone

Oh no, it's a strange, strange feeling
Loves been abandoned and I'm so alone

And everyday I see my flame growing dimmer
I've nothing left but this very life to save
And evry night I feel that I'm a winner
She's taking me down to the grave

And everyday I see my flame growing dimmer
I can't seem to chase the ghosts away
And every night I get too high, I'm a winner
I've nothing left but to pray

And every night she makes me feel like a winner
And every night she makes me think I'm a winner

Venus smiles and encircles me
And wraps me in a soft princely gown
Waves of darkness rise like the sea
In her addiction I will drown

. . .


Put your feet up maybe let the world pass by
Keep off the street, go away and wait to die
What you don't see is what life means to me
My woman says it ain't right
For a man my age to fight
She don't get it
She ain't in it
I'm pushed to the limit

Two clean shirts, I'm puffing on an old cigar
I still love women, sex and fancy cars
What you don't conceive is just what I believe
My doctor says it ain't right
For a man my age to fight
He don't get it
He ain't in it
I'm pushed to the limit

Is it nice and cozy, sitting there in your evening chair
Is your paper pressed like your string vest
It's enough to make you rip out your hair

Relations sit and wring their hands
How long will I survive
Here's the cherry, there's more spunk left
Kiss my arse, I'm still alive

You keep it nice and quiet boy, but please don't pacify me
I'm just not ready for the shade of an old oak tree
What you don't see is what life means to me
And my dad's an angry man, sometimes like desperate dan
And he gets it
And he's in it
He's pushed to the limit

My doctor says it ain't right
For a man my age to fight
He says put out the light
He don't get it
He ain't in it
I'm pushed to the limit

. . .


Oh it's been too many times and I can't go back
Night bars, guitars, rundown motels like shacks
What it mounts up to I don't want it at all
Lost you and I want you today

* misty green and blue
Love to love to love you
Misty green and blue
Love to love to love you

To be something, to be with you
Don't say that you'll never know
Love to love to love you

Half the time it could seem funny
The other half is just too sad
This west bound moon's they rise and fall
Lost you and I want you today

* repeat

To be something, to be near you
I don't know where I'm goin' to
I've tried and I need you to stay
