Do Things My Way
STYX
DO THINGS MY WAY


Look at you youíre talking to yourself
Could it maybe be a cry for help
Canít see the forest from your tree there

Sometimes I think youíre doing well
Other times you put yourself through hell
Itís enough to bring you to your knees dear

Iím gonna open up to you
Itís all Iím really trying to do
Say whatís on my mind
Yeah whatís on my mind, singiní

If you wanna have it your way
Yeah you gotta do things my way
If you really wanna have it your way
All you gotta do is do things my way

Youíve had me by the little hairs
Running here and there and everywhere
Now I know exactly how your mind is wired

I always knew this day would come
To face the monster youíve been hiding from
So either douse the flame of love
Or stoke the fire

Or we can play this guessing game
I call your bluff you do the same
Weíre just wasting time
Wasting all my time, listen

If you wanna have it your way
Yeah you gotta do things my way
If you really wanna have it your way
All you gotta do is do things my way

I know you never like to compromise
But when you think of all the lonely nights
And I see that look in your eyes
Iíd say itís time to simplify your thinking

Why does it have to be so hard
To play your hand and show your cards
If you will I will
If you will I will

Before you get your just desserts
Let me clear your table first
Have you, have you had your fill

If you wanna have it your way
Yeah you gotta do things my way
If you really wanna have it your way
All you gotta do is do things my way

If you wanna have it your way
Yeah you gotta do things my way
If you really wanna have it your way
All you gotta do is do things my wayback to top
Waiting for Our Time
STYX
WAITING FOR OUR TIME


Looking up from where I stand
I see the vapor trail
Of a jet plane in the sky

Here the wheel is in my hand
But thereís no wind in my sails
And life is drifting by

Still I hold on and wait
I know itís not too late
And my breeze will come

Muse you satisfy my soul
Keep me warm while the
Cold world guards the gate

Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come

Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come

Your love has kept my dream alive
A vision of my life
With you here by my side

Every forward step I take
Every moment Iím awake
I feel your love inside

So close I feel it in my bones
I know Iím not alone as I climb this wall
But I, sometimes I get so high
I just want to live, love
And taste it all

Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come
Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come

Here tonight
I lie awake and watch you dream
Under the light of the moon
I wonder just how far weíve been
And where weíll be
When the sun comes up
Will this be our date with destiny

Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come

Iím searching
Iím wondering
Iím yearning
Waiting for our time to come

And Iím waitingback to top
Fields of the Brave
STYX
FIELDS OF THE BRAVE


Sometimes I close my eyes
And picture the plains
I see Buffalo Bill and the Iroquois
Riding again

Open skies, fertile ground
This was heaven on earth
That they found

We got what they gave
By their God we were saved
They were humble not depraved
These streets weíre afraid of
Once were the fields of the brave
The fields of the brave

Where a Chevrolet rusts
By a closed shopping mall
Can you see through the dust
Where the brave ones stood tall

Buried deep where they fell
They live on in the stories we tell

They got what they gave
By their God they were saved
And I say this as I pray
I canít help but dream of
The days these were fields of the brave
The fields of the brave

After all this time
And the struggles in between
We stand next in line
With the chance we can build on their dreams
In the

Fields of the brave
Fields of the brave
We got what they gave

In the fields of the brave
Let their spirits be saved
And I pray this on their graves
Thereíll be a return of
The days these were fields of the brave
The fields of the braveback to top
Bourgeois Pig
STYX
BOURGEOIS PIG


Bourgeois Pig
You got too big
You forgot where you came from

You big pop star
You took it too far
You better get humble and then some

Kiss Your Ass Goodbye
Here we go again
Hands making circles
That you can't turn back again
Sky turning purple
At the funeral of a friend
Who wasn't ready for the ending yet

He made a giant mess
Sloppy disaster
And he left it for the rest
To clean up after
Now the lawyers do their best
To try to divvy up
What's ever left

In the ending you can bet
Everyone feels cheated

Kiss your ass good-bye
Boy you're out of time
You didn't choose life
It's just your luck
You got your turn now
Give it up and
Kiss your ass good-bye

What's left to say
When it's over everyone but you remains
Little children will
Still go out and play
Just like it's any other sunny day
Oh yeah

In the ending you can bet
Everyone's an equal

Kiss your ass good-bye
Dude you're past your prime
First you loose your looks
Then you loose your luck
Take the hit now
Pony up and
Kiss your ass good-bye

Everybody gets to go around one time
(And they said it wouldn't last)
After that baby gonna go bye-bye
(Before you know it you're the past)
Everybody got to check out sometime
You go first
I'll catch up right behind

In the ending you can bet
Everyone's a loser

Kiss your ass good-bye
Man it's closing time
It never seems fair
It's never enough
Take a bow, pucker up and
Kiss your ass good-bye
(Nothing left to say, now that it's over you can)
Kiss your ass good-bye Good-byeback to top
These Are the Times
STYX
THESE ARE THE TIMES


hear voices from beyond the veil
They reverberate in mystery
There are shadows in my heart
And they multiply in memory

And the comrades that Iíve lost out there
In the scattered ruins still speak to me

If the flickering light of your campfire dims
The world grows smaller
Itís closing in
Iím standing here
And I want you to live

I know

These are the times we find out who we really are
This will be when a true friend stands at your side
Someone like me who wants to
Believe in the days of high times and innocence
Drawing the lines and shouting back to the night
Someone like me who wants you to live

And from those whoíve seen the light beyond
We know the end will bring tranquility
But the voices of the friends they heard
Brought them back to this reality

Tough the beacon of light in your life seems dim
The sunís coming up on the world weíre in
There are choices here
And I want you to live

I know

These are the times we find out who we really are
This will be when a true friend stands at your side
One more like me
Who wants to believe in the truth of all we experienced
To live again to jump back into the fight
Someone like me who wants you to live

Pouring light from the sky
Portends you and I
Disappears in the night

I still remember

I hear voices from beyond the veil
Like a faint unfinished symphony

Though the beacon of light in your life seems dim
The sunís coming up on the world weíre in
Iím standing here
And I want you to live

I know

These are the times we find out who we really are
This will be when a true friend stands at your side
One more like me
Who wants to believe in the truth of all we experienced
To live again to jump back into the fight
Someone like me who wants you to live

I want you, I want you, I want you to live
I want you, I want you, I want you to live
I want you to live

I still remember.back to top
Yes I Can
STYX
YES I CAN


So they say that a man canít live in this world
If heís wearing his heart on his sleeve
I can

And they say that a man canít understand
What a women needs when she cries
I can
I can

And I can see you standing in the yard
Tending the roses in your garden
The sun is shining through your cotton dress
And I will freeze this moment here in time
I could live forever in your garden
Ah yes
Yes I can

Fool doesnít know what heís missing the most
Itís a bitch of a place to be in
Here I am

How would I know I could give up the ghost
And still hold all your dreams in my hand
Here I am
Here I am

And I can see you standing in the yard
Tending the roses in your garden
The wind is blowing through your golden hair
And I will freeze this moment here in time
I could live forever in your garden
Ah yes
Yes I can

And I can see you standing in the yard
Tending the roses in your garden
The sun is shining through your cotton dress
And I will freeze this moment here in time
I could live forever in your garden
Oh yes
Yes I can

And I can be your man
Mmm, yes I canback to top
More Love for the Money
STYX
MORE LOVE FOR THE MONEY


The cats were on the table
They were waiting for their dinner
Ďtil the children came and shooed them all away

Daddyís at the racetrack
Desperate just to pick one winner
Will he ever be their hero of the day
Mom paid the price
She sacrificed for nothing of value
And why is it I buy this shit
That nobody wants to

More love for the money
Thatís all Iím after
More Buzz for the honey
And a bit more laughter

Why is that so much to ask
More for the money
Baby better get mine fast

At the mall again
Iím feeling desperate and uncertain
God itís got to be here somewhere I believe
My demographic profile
Knows itís show time
Raise the curtain
Start the comedy and let me be naive

A circus flea from A to B
I jump for my keeper
In search of true enlightenment
For ten per cent cheaper

More love for the money
Thatís all Iím after
More Buzz for the honey
And a bit more laughter

Why is that so much to ask
More for the money
Price had better come down fast

If there's a place beyond these shadows
Of this dreary road I tread
Then for me thatís all that matters
Just the promise of arriving
Maybe getting there before Iím dead

More love
More love for the money
Now keep it coming
More buzz for the honey
Theyíll all come running

Put it right here in my hand
More for the money
Get me to the promised land
More for the money
Get me to the promised landback to top
Together
STYX
TOGETHER


Rush down, down to the first floor
There never seems to be enough time
Push hard, and push a little bit more
A cup of coffee and Iím gonna be fine
Fine as I can be now

Me and you, we do what we gotta do
We only want to have a good life
Itís tough, we donít see each other enough
And sometime the going gets rough
Still we keep pushing on through

We could use another summer of love
Itís cloudy here
But thereís a blue sky up above

If we could only fly away from here
We could say good-bye to all the tears
And maybe we could spend the rest of our years
Together, together

Sometimes I watch the TV news
I wanna say whatís the use in trying
Cause come on, what kind of difference can one man make
Yeah but how much more can I take

I think back when I was a little kid
I did what little kids did
Played war Ďtil I didnít wanna play no more
Hey and thatís when love stepped in
Changed everything again

Itís never too late for a summer of love
Yeah itís cloudy here
But thereís a blue sky up above

If we could only fly away from here
We could say good-bye to all the tears
And maybe we could spend the rest of our years
Together, we could be together

These are crazy times
Itís a different world
Well, thatís okay
Let it be that way
We could lose our minds
Or we could find our way
We can change our world
No matter what they say

If we could only fly away from here
We could turn around and say good-bye to all the tears
And maybe we could spend the rest of our years
Together
We could be together

Now, we can let the sunshine in (Together)
And we can overcome and win (Together)
Weíll have ourselves a summer of love again (Together)
Weíll be, weíll be together
Hey, hey
Weíll be togetherback to top
Fooling Yourself (Palm of Your Hands)
Written by tommy shaw
Lead vocals by tommy shaw

You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat and your head needs a rest

And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it
How can you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me
How can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb, such a caring young man

You're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on, let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it

You're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on, let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow itback to top
Captain America
STYX
CAPTAIN AMERICA


Captain America is that you
Flying down the highway
In your red white and blue

You remind me of the days
In that infamous war
When we werenít quite sure
What we were fighting for

I see you again and it makes me think
About just who I am
Is there someone in charge
Who can lead the way tonight
Who knows the plan

Where thereís love
There is grace
Thereís still hope left in this place
And the smile on your face
Gives me faith in the human race

Captain America what do you see
Millions of your brothers say theyíll fight to be free
Who could have known you would be the chosen one
To kick start our dreams
The cycle of life goes around and round again
Tell me what does it mean
Can it be true

Where thereís love
There is grace
And thereís hope left in this place
And the smile on your face
Gives me faith in the human

If we could trade all of our tomorrows
For the best of our yesterdays
Erase all the pain and the sorrow
Would there have to be a high price to pay
Hey Hey

We run for our lives
And weíre searching for shelter now
From the coming storm
Are you the man who can lead us once again
So come on, suit up, letís go

Where thereís love
There is grace
And thereís hope left in this place
And the smile on your face
Thereís not a damn thing we canít face

Where thereís love
There is grace
And thereís hope left in this place
And the smile on your face
Gives me faith in the human
Faith in the human race

Killing the Thing That You Love
STYX
KILLING THE THING THAT YOU LOVE


Brick by brick you built a mansion
Piece by piece it seems
Youíre tearing it down

Once you walked so tall and handsome
Now nobody even wants you around
Now youíre just some kind of
Leftover clown
Now youíre like Quasi Modo crying

As you look in the mirror
At what youíve become
Killing the thing that you love
Like Lennonís assassin
Lennonís assassin

Reaching for Venus De Milo
But sheís never gonna hold you tight
You plant plutonium silos
Then you blister from the sun thatís too bright
Like a vampire stepping into the light
Just a victim of your own greed as you

Look in the mirror
At what youíve become
Killing the world that you love
Like Lennonís assassin
Lennonís assassin

The genius of a generation
Blown away just like a leaf on the wind
And now youíre looking for salvation
But you canít forget the places youíve been
And you canít erase a lifetime of sin
And you canít escape the answers as you

Look in the mirror
At what youíve become
Dredging the river for what you have done
Killing the thing that you love
Like Lennonís assassin
Lennonís assassinback to top
One With Everything
STYX
ONE WITH EVERYTHING


Hold on tightly to your innocence
And donít you let go
Until you know itís gonna be your way

Through the tangle and the bramble
Thereís a thread that runs through
And itís true
Thereís no need to be afraid

Smiling ear to ear
Itís something in the atmosphere
Every star above reflecting in your sea of love
Is it just a dream
Or are things as they really seem
Somebody help me make the call

You could be the light
That shines so bright
You show the way to go
And if itís so
Donít be too surprised

Just give yourself a chance
And take a glance
Around to see the glow
Burning in my eyes

Smiling ear to ear
Itís something in the atmosphere
Every star above reflecting in your sea of love
This is not a dream
Itís just the way itís always been
Youíve got to rise above it all

Somewhere down the road that we follow
Weíll be one with everything
I know as soon as tomorrow
We could be arriving

Somewhere down the road that we follow
Weíll be one with everything
I know as soon as tomorrow
We could be arriving
And in my dreams Iím there by your side
Learning to fly again

The world we see (World we see and hear)
Is a mystery (Mystery but we)
But we hold the key (Hold the key to the door)
If we have the faith to live (Have the faith anymore)
And believe

Somewhere down the road that we follow
Weíll be one with everything
I know as soon as tomorrow
We could be arriving
And in my dreams Iím there by your side
Learning to fly againback to top
