Dance on Stilts
(Donald Roeser and John Shirley)

On the outside I'm in the high rise
Headin' for a meeting, shining up my greeting
See me in a white suit with a mirror tie

And you you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

And on the inside, I'm on my knees
Crawling an aching mile, living on the Bowery
Too sick to stand, to try to understand

But you you-you-you
Elevate me
You lift me high, just high enough to see
You you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

And no one suspects a thing
They're all hiding just the same
They ache for an outbound train
And the wheels stopped turning in their brains

And you you-you-you
Elevate me
You lift me high, just high enough to see
You you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

You elevate me
You elevate me
C'mon baby, dance on stilts, dance on stilts with me
You elevate me
You elevate meback to top
Showtime
(Eric Bloom and John Trivers)

Showtime...
Showtime...

People tell me I'm not getting younger in this place
The other guy in this room I'm sick of his face
And there's a guy who's watching me, it really is a drag
Hassling me on my way to work making license tags

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here...
Showtime...
Showtime...

Eight long years to do, I've just finished two
These walls are a little bit tight
I'd rather be with you
Good behavior and I'll be out on parole
Or maybe i'll bust outta here, I'm losing self control

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here...

Well i was young and in love, i pulled the perfect crime
You blew the whistle on me baby, and now I'm doing time
I guess you never loved me, you used me like a tool
And that guy out there with you, must think that I'm a fool

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here

The Old Gods Return
(John Shirley, Eric Bloom and Donald Roeser)

Now is the time the moon is in alignment
With the unknown zodiac, the untold sign
Of the fiery maniac within each breast
Awaits a stirring irridescent whirring
Of a six eyed god whose wings beat
In a time so odd, so very odd
And we're all lost, all of us blessedly lost

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Exactly when the world is not expecting it
Exactly when we're sure of ourselves
That's exactly when the old gods return
And sweep our cities back into hell

Now is the time that the old gods return
Now is the time that water begins to burn
Now is the time that the apes take wing
And we recognize them from that Oz thing
And we realize it was a prophecy
We realize it was a prophecy
Yeah the old gods laugh, it amuses them
The old gods laugh

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Exactly when the world is not expecting it
Exactly when we're sure of ourselves
That's exactly when the old gods return
Amd sweep our cities...
And sweep our cities back into hell

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods returnback to top
Pocket
(Donald Roeser and John Shirley)

The blossoms are falling,
Making a white path across the grass
Thunderheads are building, your skin tightens
And you wait for the flash

Across the street, the boys are laughing
As they wash each other's cars
They turn up the hip-hop
White boys
Rapping with the black stars

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

Overhead a rumble, it's not thunder,
It's a 747
The postman grumbles, it's past eleven
The street is sixth
It should be seventh

You hear the chiming of the ice cream truck
Rambling like in a dream
I hear your footsteps behind me
The sweetest eddy in the stream

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment


Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the momentback to top
One Step Ahead of the Devil
(John Shirley, Eric Bloom, Donald Roeser, Danny Miranda and Bobby Rondinelli)

You hear the hounds awailin'
As if the mountains groan
You hear the lonesome echo, the telltale clack of stones
You thought you'd get away, but you're never quite alone
You hear the hiss of rattler, maracas on his tail
You hear the lion replyin' to the stalker on your trail

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can

You hear the darkness weeping
For those who fall tonight
That night you lay beside her, for once you almost slept
Until her slim blade glimmered near got you 'fore you leapt
Wish you could leave her livin but that's like guns and rust
You don't want it on your gun, it's just like you and trust

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can

Somewhere, there's a refuge
Somewhere, a place to rest
Somewhere, there's a lover
Someday you'll pass the test

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you canback to top
I Just Like to Be Bad
(John Shirley, Eric Bloom, and Bryan Neumeister)

I knew her when she was a secretary
She always refused to get married
She tried not to smile or meet your eyes
She knew if she did you'd start those lies

I busted a sweat every day on the dock
She sang to herself as she worked for the boss
She'd process words to the dance music station
Every stroke of her fingers an invitation

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

And I kept trying whisperin' slow and special
Something eternal and something essential
I don't give up but I ain't a stalker
I guess I'm just an easy talker

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

And I made sure that I held her gaze
And I made sure she couldn't look away
And I put aside all those tired old lies
She read the truth, see it in my eyes

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

But only for you I just like to be bad
But only for you I just like to be bad
But only for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you, babe I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be for only you I just like to be badback to top
Here Comes That Feeling
(Dick Trismen and Donald Roeser)

Drivin' alone into the darkness
I heard you call my name
And the roar of the engine
Is calling me to blame
Tears in my mirror cryin' for the people behind us
But I know I won't let you go, oh no

Here comes that feeling again
I'm wrapping my dreams around you
And our love is healin' again
After all we've been through

And I know there's a place inside of my heart
That the road will never find
And I'm afraid the approaching headlights
Will someday leave me blind
You shatter the mirror
Fight off the forces that drive me on tonight
I won't let you go, oh no

Here comes that feeling again
I'm wrapping my dreams around you
And our love is healin' again
After all we've been through

Baby, climb into the night time
Girl, this moment is the right time

Drivin' on and I'm still hungry
To make the next town
And this road's the only
thing that could bring us down
If it keeps me driving
I swear i'll never leave you behind
And I know I can't let you go, oh no

Here comes that feeling again
I'm wrapping my dreams around you
And our love is healin' again
After all we've been through

Here comes that feeling again
Here comes that feeling againback to top
Out of the Darkness
(John Shirley, Danny Miranda, Eric Bloom, and Donald Roeser)

Out of the darkness out of the dustcloud
Follow the thread and then trace your way free
Your father, your mother have bound you in darkness
Have blinded you sweetly and so far from me
They cannot abide me, your father and mother
But they cannot divide me from the one other than me

Only one other, only one other
Only one other has meaning for me

Now come to the window, now wipe away raindrops
See there a scarecrow who waves through the mist
I am that dim form, I raise my right hand
A rag in a rainstorm, the chance that you've missed
The door opens both ways, the door opens outward
My heart contains always the one time we kissed

Only one other, only one other
Only one other has meaning for me
Only one other beside my own soul
You are that other with meaning for me

Your mother, your father, they live in their heart break
They remember each other and they turn you from me
Your mother, your father they hate me for your sake
But they cannot divide us, no I won't let it be

I am that dim form, I raise my right hand
A rag in a rainstorm, the chance that you've missed
The door opens both ways, the door opens outward
My heart contains always the one time we kissed

The only one other, only one other
Only one other has meaning for me
Only one other beside my own soul
You are that other with meaning for me

The only one other, only one other
Only one other has meaning for me
Only one other beside my own soul
You are that other with meaning for meback to top
Stone of Love
(R. Meltzer and Donald Roeser)

There is a box that I have shown
And in the box the games of god
There is a fox that I have known
And in its heart the blood is hard
Its heart is but a stone

There is a chain that I have worn
And on the chain a thorn is hung
There is a pain forever borne
That sings a song forever sung
The song is but a stone
Stone of love
Stone of love
Stone of love
Stone of love

There is a ledge beside a dome
And on the ledge adventures dance
There is an edge that is your home
And on the edge breathes true romance

There is a voice without a sound
Whose wisdom speaks in foolish rhyme
There is a choice that I have found
Between the fear and safer time
The choice is but a stone
Stone of love
Stone of love
Stone of love
Stone of loveback to top
Eye of the Hurricane
(John Shirley, Eric Bloom, Bryan Neumeister, Donald Roeser and Bobby Rondinelli)

Sometimes I let it take me like a greased and vertical sled
I know the trick won't break me, it's all dancing in my head

People think that they can change most people it ain't true
It's easy to talk about change, ain't easy followin' through

Once it starts, it has to finish, once it rolls, it's gonna crash
You know it finds its limit, today's heroes tomorrow's trash

He never blinks, he never blinks, he doesn't care what you think
Cause there's an eye in my hurricane
There's an eye in my hurricane
There's something calm watching in the center of me
Cause there's an eye to my hurricane

People fly around me like dead leaves in high wind
They stream down the choking streets and never quite reach the end

Sometimes I wear a blue buzzsaw, I wear it like mohawk steel
Sometimes I ride my fatal flaw blindfolded, do it by feel

He never blinks, he never blinks, he doesn't care what you think
Cause there's an eye in my hurricane
There's an eye in my hurricane
There's something calm watching in the center of me
Cause there's an eye to my hurricane

Sometimes I wear a blue buzzsaw, I wear it like mohawk steel
Sometimes I ride my fatal flaw blindfolded, do it by feel

He never blinks, he never blinks, he doesn't care what you think
Cause there's an eye in my hurricane
There's an eye in my hurricane
There's something calm watching in the center of me
Cause there's an eye to my hurricane
There's an eye to my hurricane
There's an eye to my hurricane
There's an eye to my hurricaneback to top
Good to Feel Hungry
(John Shirley, Danny Miranda, Eric Bloom, and Donald Roeser)

It's good to feel hungry when you're about to eat well
It's good to be angry when you're ready to yell
It's good to be angry

It's good to feel certain even when you're not right
Sweep back the curtain and let in some light
If there is any light

She calls me, she summons me with a purr
And no amount of cryin' will set me free from her
And only deep feeling, finding my way into feeling
Only just being, will free me from her

Sometimes I flirt with despair, as if she were a lady
A pale and black-haired lady
A cool and bloodless lady, yeah

Good to feel, good to feel it's good to feel damn good to feel
Good to feel, it's good to feel, it's good to feel damn good to feel
It's good to feel, it's good to feel, it's good to feel damn good to feel
It's good to feel, it's good to feel, it's good to feel damn good to feel
Damn good to feel
Damn good to feel
Damn good to feelback to top
