Demon's Kiss
Written by E. Bloom, D. Roeser and J. Shirley
Performed by Blue Oyster Cult

It was one of those things you don't quite see
I guess I knew but didn't want to believe
Shout in her hair, and steel in her eyes
Only nineteen and impossibly wise

I couldn't quite place it, I didn't quite know
But I had some wild oats and I wanted to sow
She was a feral fur and teeth
Some things you sow, you'd rather not reap

So children, you'll hear the serpents hiss
At the moment you feel
A demon's kiss

A demon's kiss, a demon's kiss
Watch out or you'll get your wish
A demon's kiss, a demon's kiss
My friends, she had a demon's kiss
A demon's kiss

They're sweet to live and dancing on MTV
Dancing in the disco, dancing for me
See the bed raise and the energy rise
Turn out the light and see the glow in her eyes

So children, you'll hear the serpents hiss
At the moment you feel
A demon's kiss

Well, it's whether awake and somehow survive
Most of her men are no longer alive
She's something you cannot have, cannot hold
Like touching your fingers on the hot coal

So children you'll hear the serpent's hiss
At the moment you feel
A demon's kiss

A demon's kiss, a demon's kiss
Watch out or you'll get your wish
A demon's kiss, a demon's kiss
My friends, she had a demon's kiss
A demon's kiss
A demon's kiss
She had a demon's kiss, a demon's kissback to top
The Horsemen Arrive
Written by E. Bloom, D. Roeser and J. Shirley
Performed by Blue Oyster Cult

Forgive me if my laughter sounds cracked
Forgive me if I smile badly
It's only that I've run off the track
Derailed by the irony

Forgive me if my laughter sounds cracked
Forgive me if I smile badly
It's only that I've run off the track
Derailed by the irony

Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs listen to the sinister drumming
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs hear the sinister drumming

They warn of Armageddon, they warn us of apocalypse
The future's as a fool's invention
Of choking skies and computer chips

(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry

Four horsemen have already arrived
I see them above us, already here
Four horsemen with hooves like knives
I say again, already here

(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
(There's a devil) human corruption
(There's a vampire) human greed

Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs listen to the sinister drumming
Can you hear the hooves, can you hear the riders coming
On presidential roofs hear the sinister drumming

(There's a nightmare) civilization
(There's a monster) industry
(There's a devil) human corruption
(There's a vampire) human greed

That's How It Is
Written by Joe Nat and Devon James
Performed by Joker

Treat me right
Or don't treat me at all
Hang on tight
Or don't hang at all
Out of sight
But not out of heart
Can't be scared of the dark

That's how it is
You take and he'll give
That's how it is
Live and let live

No promises
True believer key?
No compromise
Through the crisis to steer
Speak your heart
Don't love at all
Shouldn't make you fall

That's how it is
You take and he'll give
That's how it is
Live and let live

That's how it is
You take and he'll give
That's how it is
Live and let liveback to top
Jane Jane (The Hurricane)
Written by Johnny Angel
Performed by Joker

She grew up on the wrong side of town
She wouldn't let nobody push her around
Out on the streets, you fight for your life
Red lipstick and a switchblade knife

CHORUS
Nobody knows the troubles she's seen
She fights tough, she's gonna get mean
Jane Jane, the Hurricane
A heart of stone, but she feels no pain
Jane Jane, the Hurricane
Cold-blooded love for your life in vain

>From town to town, she's a loner
No way in hell you'll get to know her
Gone with the wind without a trace
She'll wipe the smile right from your face

CHORUS

It's all in vain, Jane
It's all in vain, Jane
Oh yeah!

Somewhere In The Night
Written by Ron Keel
Performed by Fair Game

Driving through the pouring rain
I'm back out on the road again
Headed for another one-night stand

Keep wishing I was home again
Hanging out with my own friends
I guess I'll die a travelling man

Baby
We've been loving on borrowed time
And now you're leaving
You say you're walking on down the line
But don't stop believing

Where you gonna search for love
Somewhere in the night, baby
And where ya gonna find a man like me
To set you free
Baby, you'll find me out there
Somewhere in the night, woman
And it'll be all right, yeah
Somewhere in the night
(Somewhere in the night)

And though we never said goodbye
We thought that it was time for me to fly
Taking off on broken wings

She kissed the tears from my eye
'Cause everybody says that tough guys never cry
We may never love like this again
'Cause some lose and some never win

We're gonna leave this town behind
And don't look back now
'Cause if I can't make you mine
I'll just keep on dreaming

Where you gonna search for love
Somewhere in the night, baby
And where ya gonna find a man like me
To set you free
Baby, you'll find me out there
Somewhere in the night, woman
And who's gonna hold you tight
Somewhere in the night

Where you gonna search for love
Somewhere in the night, baby
And where ya gonna find a man like me
Who's gonna set you free
Baby, you'll find me out there
Somewhere in the night, woman
And then it's gonna be all right
Somewhere in the nightback to top
Blind Faith
Written by Marc Ferrari and Tommy Thayer
Performed by Fair Game

Soul searching for the truth
Stranded on a ship of fools
Tempest tossed upon a sea of lies
Who's making up these rules

A false promise, a dirty deal
You'll do anything for power
Watch you cutting off everything real
In your ivory tower

CHORUS
Oh, no,
The whole world's turning to greed and lust
Oh, yeah
It's devilous
Believe what you want, but don't put your trust
In blind faith
(Time after time, it's a crime
When the blind lead the blind)
So don't put your trust in blind faith
(Lies lead to lies every time,
When it's all in your mind)

Beware of sleeping dogs
They run with every pack
They'll lie right to your face
And stab you in the back

They only want to hide the truth
And dig you deeper in the hole
You better look before you leap
'Cause you can't trust a soul

CHORUS

Oh they get up and leave you
They just want to deceive you
Ain't no rhyme or reason
Just don't get taken for a fool

Damned if I do
Damned if you don't
So just trust me
But don't put your trust in blind faith

(Time after time, it's a crime
When the blind lead the blind)
So don't put your trust in blind faith
(Lies lead to lies every time,
When it's all in your mind)back to top
Manic Depresso
Written and performed by Sykotik Sinfoney

Hi, kids! It's the Captain Happy show!
Starring me, Captain Happy!
I'm taking out my magic mirror...
I see Bobby, I see Susie, I see Billy!

FUCK!

Filled with joy this time of season
I'm always happy for no reason
My favorite sun shining down on me
The sweet little verse of a melody
I love to romp through the hills
And tippy-toe through the daffodills
Mister Butterfly, will you be my pet
Let me capture you in my little net

I'm so happy
I'm so happy
I'm so happy
I'm so happy

I'm so happy, they're so happy, we're so happy
Are you happy too?
I'm so happy, they're so happy,
Wouldn't you like to be happy, too?

He's so happy, she's so happy, he's so happy
Are you happy too?
I'm so happy, they're so happy,
Wouldn't you like to be happy, too?

FUCK!

Dandelions are in the air
Great big flowers are everywhere
I love to pick them every day
Arrange and put them on display
I whirl I sleep I jump I prance
My little feet, they begin to dance
Probably sitting in a tree
A friendly owl he hoots at me

I'm so happy
I'm so happy
I'm so happy
I'm so happy

Let's go!

(Loud sobbing, with a crying chorus....)

I'm so happy, they're so happy, we're so happy
Are you happy too?
I'm so happy, they're so happy,
Wouldn't you like to be happy, too?

He's so happy, she's so happy, he's so happy
Are you happy too?
I'm so happy, they're so happy,
Wouldn't you like to be happy, too?

FUCK!

Graceful floating ladybug
Grandma gives me a great big hug
Little children, great big smiles
As I skip for miles and miles
Grandma gives me a great big sweater
My little life can get no better
Life's so happy and full of joy
I'M LYING! IT REALLY SUCKS!

I'm so happy (I'm so very happy!)
I'm so happy (I really am!)
I'm so happy (I'm so very very happy!)
I'm so happy (I'm very VERY happy!)
I'm so happy (so happy!)
I'm so happy...back to top
Mr. Cool
Written and performed by Sykotik Sinfoney

Let's do it!

THIS IS THE GROOVE!
That makes Cool move
The dudest dope and he's looking smooth
BURNING
With a rubber hup buskin a thousand watts
and the basses are pumpin' hard
To the beat of the street
Cool gets out of his seat and shuffles his feet
And if you get in the way you're gonna have to pay

Mr. Cool
He's Mr. Cool, and nobody's fool
He's Mr. Cool
Oh, too cool!

He spins around with a mighty THRUST
He hits the ground (all the girlie's lust!)
Yeah, Cool's got style he can do anything
(HUH HUH HUH HUH) He's the body king
He thinks he's cool
I think he's lame
His ego feeds off local fame
Big talking jerks, they're all the same
Yeah!

Mr. Cool
He's Mr. Cool, and nobody's fool
He's Mr. Cool
So smooth - he's gotta be - do ya wanna be cool
Mr. Cool
He's Mr. Cool, and nobody's fool
He's Mr. Cool
The dude is cool

Tell it like it is!
People getting wise
Seeing through his lies
Lying in the street
Like a piece of meat
Rubbing it is hell

Checking it out!
(oh my god, that is like so cool...
look at those leather pants!
yeah, he's a little bit too overweight
to be wearing those, isn't he?
yeah, look at all those chicks
what a loser!)

Mr. Cool
He's Mr. Cool, and nobody's fool
He's Mr. Cool

So smooth - he's gotta be - do ya wanna be cool
Mr. Cool
He's Mr. Cool, and nobody's fool
He's Mr. Cool

Myth Of Freedom
Written and performed by DMT

Hold on...
YEAH!

I think that I can't help it
There's a bomb ticking in my head
It explodes, and then I fall
And leave my bloody ideas all over the wall
No, no... I just don't know
If I have a soul

There's a monster living inside me
Oh... My cage is my body

Touching Myself Again
Written and performed by DMT

Alone in my body
Alone in my head
Dreaming of someone
Here in my bed

It feels so real
It nearly drove me insane
My body is different
This is still my brain

Touching myself again
Touching myself again
Hoping she will be my friend
I'm just touching myself a...

My eyes are closed
And I'm looking at you
Alone in the darkness
You know what I do

Touching myself again
Touching myself again
Hoping she will be my friend
I'm just touching myself again
Here I go now...

Alone in my body
Alone in my head
Dreaming of you
Here in my bed

It feels so real
Blood fills my veins
So I grabbed it firmly
And I stroked it again
Here I go again
Here I go againback to top
Little Old Lady Polka
Written and performed by The Ukelaliens

I am just a young man
I haven't a vife
A farm in da hills
Can be a lonely life
But then one night
Came a knocking at my door
And I vill never be lonely any more

Dere vas an old lady
As sweet as could be
She told me she had
Some good news for me
She took off her coat
And showed me her treat
A great big streudel, all that I could eat

I ate the mightiest streudel through the night
The old lady smiled with joy
She savored every morsel until the morning light
Oh how the lady just loves to feed her boy

(Yodeled)
She's a little old lady, a little old lady, etc...
She's a little old lady, a little old lady, etc...
Who loves to feed me streudel all night long

Every single night after tending to my sheep
I eat a little streudel before I go to sleep
She always has it waiting, she keeps it nice and warm
Now I am so happy on my little farm

I ate the mightiest streudel through the night
The old lady smiled with joy
She savored every morsel until the morning light
Oh how the lady just loves to feed her boy

(Yodeled)
She's a little old lady, a little old lady, etc...
She's a little old lady, a little old lady, etc...
Who loves to feed me streudel all night longback to top
