Godzilla
( - D. Roeser - )

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh no, they say he's got to go go go Godzilla
Oh no, there goes Tokyo go go Godzilla

History shows again and again
How nature points up the folly of menback to top
Golden Age Of Leather
( - B. Abbott - D. Roeser - )

Raise your can of beer on high
And seal your fate forever
Our best years have past us by
The golden age of leather

This was the night not long to come in the year of our Lord A.D.
Where in a desert way-house, poised on the brink of eternity
Four and ninety studded horsemen closed the knot of honor
As only drunken soldiers can

And passed from man to man, a wanton child to dead to care
That each would find his pleasure as he might
For this fantastic night was billed as nothing less than the end of
an age
A last crusade, a final outrage, in this day of flacid plumage

And there was worn no cloth but leather
Made supple by years of stinging cinders
And here were seen the scars of age
For age had been the common call for one last night together

Down colored the sky (the ritual feast)
Some had died (they were buried with their bikes)
Each grabbed a rag (from a man with a sack)
Torn strips of color (the red and the black)

We made a vow to give it all we had to give
We made a vow to die as we had lived

They flew the colors, they began to fight
They flailed at each other like bugs at a light
Bodies and bikes beyond repair
Smell of oil and gas in the air

Then the wind whipped the desert with a giant hand
And the humans and the Harleys caught the shifting sand
And the old ranger weathered the storm
And he topped the rise by the middle of morn
He saw rippled dunes, calm and surreal
And a glint of a shaft of chromium steel

Golden age...back to top
Death Valley Nights
( - R. Meltzer - A. Bouchard - )

Bleached by the sun
And scorned by the moon
If I make it 'til tomorrow noon
I'm leaving

'Tween the horror of space
And the terror of time
My heart in crystal
Down the line I'm screaming

What I need is a kiss from you babe
Before it's hangover time
What I need is some love from you babe
Before this stampede arrives

Desolate landscapes
Storybook bliss
Darling let me tell you
This is crazy

Hell of a memory
Is a Heaven a pain
Snow is cold but so is rain
Please save me

What I need is a kiss from you babe
Before it's hangover time
What I need is some love from you babe
Before the stampede arrives
I need youback to top
Searchin' For Celine
( - A. Lanier - )

I've been searching searching
Searching for Celine
I've been searching searching
Searching for Celine

I know where she's working
I know where she hides
I know why she's cursing
She knows why I lie

I've been searching searching
Searching for Celine
I've been searching searching
For her company

I know where she's sleeping
I know why she's tired
I know why she's cursing
She knows why I lie

Love is like a gun
In the hands of someone like you
I think it'd kill
But oh what a thrill
Oh what a thrill

I've been talking talking
Talking in my sleep
I've been talking talking
Talking to Celine

Talking 'bout your love
Talking 'bout your love
Talking 'bout your love
Do you know what I saidback to top
Fireworks
( - A. Bouchard - )

She went down to her house by the water
To hide herself from his grasp
He went down to the water to find her
To consumate their love at last

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing red

She went down to escape from her prison
To free herself from her fears
All those years up to here with tradition
And opportunity so near

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing red

She went down on a snow white pillow
To cast herself in the looking glass
He knew the time had finally come now
To break the spell they shared at last

Then the lightning flashing (flashing crashing)
Fireworks shooting up in her head (in her head)
The earth was shaking (shaking quaking)
Fireworks pouring down on her head (on her head)
Only sound she heard was (lovely word)
Fireworks like a charm (annointed)
Blazing redback to top
R. U. Ready 2 Rock
( - S. Pearlman - A. Bouchard - )

Come on come on thru the stations of night
Come on come on everybody's waiting
Come on come on with the signal in sight
Come on come on there's a new tune playing

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
But who will rock with you
Oh woman with you

Come on come on thru the cities of night
Come on come on everybody's praying
Come on come on for the wonder of light
Come on come on there's a new dance breaking

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
But who will rock with you
Oh woman with you

I ain't gonna catch those countdown blues
I ain't gonna catch those countdown blues
I only love to be born again
I only love to be born again
I only love to be born again

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?

Celestial The Queen
( - H. Wheels - J. Bouchard - )

I'm out of my place I'm out of my mind
Totally bent in the big time
There's no place for one of my kind
Scorn behind shades I don't care anyway

Celestial the Queen
Celestial the Queen
Celestial the Queen

Her world turns around
In my ear the sound of laughter
Swift descent
Dark and mute dreams deceive

The world turns around me
Celestial the Queen
Celestial the Queen

She came from the dark she came from a dream
All leather and chains the rising queen
Born into the night born into the spotlight
She spread her wings and then she was gone

Celestial the Queen
Celestial the Queen
Celestial the Queen

The world turns around
In my head the fury laughter
Swift ascent
And then forever it meant nothing

The world turns around me

Goin' Through The Motions
( - E. Bloom - I. Hunter - )

Too wild to care, you got that animal stare
You got stay anywhere in your eyes
And you're leading me on, but you can be anyone
'Cause I know you'll be gone 'fore I rise

And we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Going through the motions

Staying with you gave us something to do
I almost thought it was true for a while
'Cause there's love in you lies, you senility skies
You couldn't tell right from wrong if you tried

And we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Going through the motions

To thee I dedicate this photograph
I'll even sign it "love to you" again
And when it's faded and forgotten in some book
You'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look, you'll sometimes look

It's a game, it's a game, no let's call it a shame
'Cause there's no one to blame just to pay
You were a friend for a day, so don't cry if I say
That you got what you want, it's OK

And we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Going through the motions

Yeah, yeah, we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Yeah, we're going through the motions
Going through the motionsback to top
I Love The Night
( - D. Roeser - )

That night her kiss told me it was over
I walked out late into the dark
The misty gloom seems to soak up my sorrow
The further I went on I felt a spreading calm
Then suddenly my eyes were bathed in a light
And the lovely lady in white was by my side
She said "Like me I see you're walking alone
Won't you please stay?" I couldn't look away

She said I love the night
The day is OK and the sun can be fun
But I live to see those rays slip away
I love the night
There's so much I can show and give to you
If you will welcome me tonight
If only you had been there my dear
We could have shared this together

No mortal was meant to see such wonder
One look in the mirror told me so
Come darkness I'll see her again
Yes I'm gonna go 'cause now I know

She said I love the night
The day is OK and the sun can be fun
But I live to see those rays slip away
I love the night
There's so much that I can show and give to you
If you will welcome me tonight
If only you had been there my dear
We could have shared this togetherback to top
Nosferatu
( - H. Wheels - J. Bouchard - )

Deep in the heart of Germany
Lucy clutched her breast in fear
She heard the beat of her lover's heart
For weeks she raved in dreams he appeared
From far Transylvania

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart who will offer herself
To Nosferatu

This ship pulled in without a sound
The faithful captain long since cold
He kept his log till the bloody end
Last entry read "Rats in the hold.
My crew is dead, I fear the plague"

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart who will offer hefself
To Nosferatu

Mortal terror reigned
Sickness now then horrible death
Only Lucy knew the truth
And at her window
Nosferatu

So chaste so calm, she gave herself
To the pleasure of her dreaded master
He sucked the precious drops of life
Throughout the long and cold dark night

One last goodbye, he was blinded by love
One last goodbye, he was blinded by love
Blinded by love

He screamed with fear, he'd stayed too long in her room
The morning sun had come too soon
The spell was broken with a kiss of doom
He vanished into dust, left her all alone

Only a woman can break his spell
Pure in heart, who will offer herself
To Nosferatu...
