Dr. Music
( - R. Meltzer - J. Bouchard - D. Roeser - )

Dance on fire with me babe
The flames ain't gonna stop
Come on and show me
That you're ready to trot

So if you really wanna do it
You better do it hot

Ah my babe
You tell me that you're scared
But your fear
Is just driving me mad

Well, you can call me Dr. Music
Music is my game
Well, you can call me Dr. Music
Music is my name

Girl don't stop that screamin'
You're sounding so sincere
So much beauty
In the tracks of your tears

So if you wanna face the music
Open up your ears

Meet my friend
Calamity Jane
Hear the rhythm
In the sound of her pain

Well, you can call me Dr. Music
Music is my game
Well, you can call me Dr. Music
Music is my nameback to top
The Great Sun Jester
( - M. Moorcock - J. Trivers - E. Bloom - )

They have killed the great sun jester
Who danced between the stars
They have stripped him of his manhood
Signs of Venus and of Mars
The cynics left him weeping
And the jackals left him torn
And the jester reaches out bind hands
He can touch the stars no more.

CHORUS:
And he took the stars in his hands
And as he scattered them he'd shout
"I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about."
Now he's dying in his grief
And the hard men dragged him down
They have killed the wild-eyed jester
They have killed the fireclown

Now his blind eyes seek the starlight
And his fingers seek controls
To take him into space again
Where he was both young and old
The dancers stiff with pain
And they've made him kneel too long
And the madness they have driven out
They've left him cold and sane.

CHORUS

He'll never - sing his songs - again....
He'll never dance between the stars - again....
He'll never laught - again....
No he'll never ever laugh again....
Oh, no....back to top
In Thee
( - A. Lanier - )

Maybe I'll see you again baby
And maybe I won't
Maybe you've bought your ticket
Gone back to Detroit
Airplanes make strangers of us all
Give us distance
Much too easily.

Jim says some destinies
Should not be delivered
But you and I seen now baby
That still they are
Winning it makes losers of us all
'Cause the dice roll
So indifferently.

CHORUS:
Well, I'll wrap myself in cities I travel
I'll wrap myself in dreams
I'll wrap myself in solitude
("stranger's arms" FOR 3RD CHORUS)
But I wish I could wrap myself
In thee.

Tonight it's hot, without you
Tomorrow'll be cold
Winter will come along
Driven by snow
Love it makes strangers of us all
When we part
Oh so thoughtlessly

CHORUS

Once we breathed the breath
Of sweet surrender
Pure, pure Arab air filled our
Atmosphere
But pride it makes stars of us all
Until we fall
For everyone to see.

Mirrors
( - D. Roeser - B. Abbott - )

A mirror is a negative space
With a frame and a place for your face
It reveals what the rest of us see
It conceals what you'd like it to be

Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away

Pretty girls have a love afair
With their eyes and their shining hair
Fantasize that the world adores
Tantalize like a cover girl

Mirrors are the basis of beauty
Give rise to self love or self pity
The prize if a woman is pretty
She tries like a superstar Hollywood girl

Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away
Pretty girls can't look away

Vanity's a deadly sin
It's what the flesh is packaged in
Vanity's a deadly sin
It's what the flesh is packaged in

A mirror is a negative space
With a frame and a place for your face
It reveals what the rest of us see
It conceals what you'd like it to be

Vanity's a deadly sin
It's what the flesh is packaged inback to top
Moon Crazy
( - J. Bouchard - )

Did you catch the fever
Flying toward the moon?
Sailing in space to a distant shore
You kind of wondered
What they came here for

We lived days for lovin'
Falling for all we met
A world gone crazy from the lunacy
The tides kept rising and falling
Like you and me

Moon crazy
Summer of changes
Let the night shine on (and on) and on
Shine on until the feeling is gone
Dreaming about, what could it be
Summer's embraces
Had a hold on me

On the hill they danced 'til dawn
While the video flickered along
But in your heart was an empty need
You just didn't know
Where the dream would lead

Moon crazy
Summer of changes
Let the night shine on (and on) and on
Shine on, shine on

Moon crazy
Summer of changes
Let the night shine on (and on) and on
Shine on until the feeling is gone
Dreaming about, what could it be
Summer's embraces
Had a hold on me

Moon crazy
Summer of madness
Let the night shine on (and on) and on
Shine on until the feeling is gone
Dreaming about, what could it be
Summer's embraces
Had a hold on meback to top
The Vigil
( - D. Roeser - S. Roeser - )

In a purple vision
Many thousand years ago
I saw the silent stranger
Walk the earth alone

Twenty-seven faces
With their eyes turned to the sky
I've got a camera
And an airtight alibi

I know they're out there
We see them coming
Faster than the speed of light
They greet us in the dead of the night

Somewhere, someday, someone
They'll be light and sound
They'll alight on the ground
On which we stand

Somewhere, someday, someone
Will help us to survive
They're gonna show us hell
And bring us back alive

Well, I'm no poet, but I can't be fooled
The lies don't count, the whispers do
I hear the whispers on the wind
They say the earth has fallen due

We run in circles
Our days are numbered
Every night I look away
To the heavens and I pray

Come to us
Come to us

Our lights are dim
Our roads are crumbling
And we don't know what to do
We're sick and tired
And dying to meet you
'Cause we bit off more than
We can chewback to top
I Am The Storm
( - J. Bouchard - R. Binder - )

You scorned the love that I gave you
You lied now nothing can save you
Blue skies are turning to grey
I know the games that you play
Winds of rage they start to build
Too much madness will lay you under
The cards you draw don't help at all
Hear the sound of approaching thunder

When you see the clouds blacken
Remember you've been warned
No shelter from my fierce winds
Because, I am the storm

You'll hear my echoes of anger
You'll fear the roar of my thunder
Nightmares, confusion will come true
Aces and eights are the fate that you drew
Lightning bolts become my swords
When I pull them from the sky
Run my gauntlet of slashing rain
You won't survive to testify

When you see the clouds blacken
Remember you've been warned
No shelter from my fierce winds
Because, I am the stormback to top
You're Not The One (I Was Looking For)
( - A. Bouchard - C. Bouchard - )

I used to lie in my bed
Sleep wouldn't come
Thinkin' 'bout things that they said
They led me on
All of the fancy ladies
Oh they could talk and talk

I shot for the highest star
But I aimed too high
You wanted a rich rock star
But he made you cry
Now that we have each other
We can laugh about it

CHORUS:
You're not the one I was lookin' for but
You're the one for me (you're the one)
I'm not the one you were lookin' for but
You can't go wrong with me
You're not the one I was lookin' for but
You're oh so good for me

Now I can't make it without
I can't go on
We can make beautiful music
And prove them wrong
We've been put down by the best
And now we laugh about it, ya

(CHORUS)

You're oh so good for me (You're so good) (3X'S)back to top
Lonely Teardrops
( - A. Lanier - )

Lonely teardrops, you been crying
I hear them fall
In the night the empty night
I hear your song
It goes right through me
It used to move me
(Lonely, lonely)

Lonely Paris, met a dancer
We did the stroll
Through the night the empty night
Four years ago
I thought you know me
She gave it to me
(Lonely, lonely)

CHORUS:
I seem to see a rose
I reach out then it goes
Now in its thorns I roam
The sky is grey and I am cold
Lord I tell you, Lord I tell you
All I want to do is get back home

Lonely teardrops, we did shoot them
They came on strong
Vials of rain to kill the pain
So far from home
I thought you knew me
You did it to me
(Lonely, lonely)

Lonely teardrops, I've been cryin'
All week long
Love is willing but the bed is cold
Goodbye, Laurence
I thought I knew you
What good did that do
(Lonely, lonely)

CHORUS:
I seem to see a rose
I reach out then it goes
Now in its thorns I roam
You never know until you know
Lord I ask you, Lord I beg you
All I want to do is get back home

Lonely teardrops (REPEAT)
