Action
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

So you think you'll take another piece of me
To satisfy your intellectual need
Do you want, do you want
Action, action, action, action
Gonna bring you down
'Cause you've been pushing me
You've got to recognise my superiority

Liar, liar, liar, liar
You know you believed it
Higher, higher, higher, higher
'Cause I'm the main man
And that's why
Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the action

Oh, I was suicidal 'cause you was my idol
Baby, baby, baby, bring it to your knees
Oh, there was a time I would have walked the line
But you bled me dry with your insatiable greed

Liar, liar, liar, liar
You know you believed it
Higher, higher, higher, higher
'Cause I'm the main man
And that's why
Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the action

Do you want, do you want action?

Everybody wants, everybody needs
Everybody wants, everybody needs

Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I've got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guarantees
That everybody wants a piece of the actionback to top
Yesterday's Rain
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Who was in the mood way above
Layin' down my money for love
She's the kind of lady
Wouldn't take a maybe from me

She saw the need on my face
Sitting outside of my place
I did all the talking
She did all the walking from me

I didn't come down with yesterday's rain
You're fooling nobody
I didn't come down with yesterday's rain
Don't tell me you're sorry
You're fooling nobody

I'll set a score but no higher
Single return on no mire
If you keep on accusing
Then you're gonna be abusing yourself

You've got to make your mind up
Or God only knows where I'll wind up
You know I earned my ginger
So baby, lay your fingers on me

I didn't come down with yesterday's rain...

She gave me love on her fire
Up to my balls inside her
She's a kind of lady
Who won't been sayin' maybe to me

You truck it, baby
You'll find another sucker, baby
She's a kind of lady
Who's gonna take a maybe from me

I didn't come down with yesterday's rain...

I didn't come down with (down with)
Yesterday's rain (down with)
(Yesterday's rain)
I didn't foolin'
I didn't foolin'...back to top

Healer
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

I met the healer in the twilight of my life
He was the purity in my madness side
He take me far beyond the sunshine and the snow
My faithing hymn made nights a charismatic glow

Cure me, cure me, cure me
Cure me, cure me
Cure me, cure me, cure me
Cure me, cure me

He leads me through the twisted chasms of my mind
He saved me from the fated final sacrifice
He spoke to me with the palm of his hand
I hear you calling
I hear you calling
I hear you calling
I hear you calling

Deliver me, deliver me, deliver me, deliver me
Deliver me, deliver me

I am the healer in the twilight of your life
I am the purity in your madness side
Cure me, cure me, cure me, cure me, cure me
Cure me, cure me, cure me, cure me, cure me

I speak to you with the palm of my hand
I am the healer
I am the healer
I am the healer
I am the healer

Deliver me, deliver me, deliver me, deliver me
Deliver me, deliver me
Healer, healer

The Lies in Your Eyes
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

Ain't nobody gonna take my place
Whips and chains don't leave no trace
Solid gold brass got a plastic face, ah
Break me up every time you try
To cool me off with a wink in your eye
And I don't eat from a pie in the sky no more

I can see you ain't foolin' me
I ain't blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The tears that you cry, I'm not blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
But the lies in your eyes

You've got a big fat mouth, watch what you say
'Cause sooner (later) you're gonna pay
Gone tomorrow here today
There ain't nobody gonna take my place
Sticks and stones don't leave no trace
I don't need your second face

I can see you ain't foolin' me
I ain't blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The tears that you cry, I'm not blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
But the lies in your eyes

Don't you know
I can see you ain't foolin' me
I ain't blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The tears that you cry, I'm not blind
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
The lies in your eyes don't disguise
But the lies in your eyesback to top
Cockroach
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

You crawled into my bed
Like a cockroach
The things you said
Made me lose my head
Like a waterfall
You've got a mouth
Like a DC ten
But I love you

You've got me in your arms
And your special charms
My yah ah yah
You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
But I don't want nobody but you

You fucking laugh at my inolations
You made a fuss 'bout my eating purse
By my mothers's side
You feel away like a sherman tank
But I love you

You're gonna take me there
I don't really care
My yah ah yah
You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
I don't want nobody but you

Turn you on to me to bring your Mama
The way she freaks gives me the creeps
She's a mainline ma'am
You've got to know
what you're doin' to your Daddy
'Cos I love you
You've got me in your arms
Ooh your precious charms
Ah yah ah yah

You got my head in circles
Uh, loved ya
I don't want nobody but youback to top
Lady Starlight
(Scott)

Looking for starlight
The lady made it allright
She was the lady
And I knew right from the start
Sweet lady starlight
Come on and make it tonight
You turn it on so easy
And the lady is my lady starlight

Sing the song should be sung
And love can be the voice
The tears in my eyes
I'm crying tears of joy
When you say I'm your boy

Looking for starlight
The lady made it allright
She was the lady
And I knew right from the start
Sweet lady starlight
Come on and make it tonight
You turn it on so easy
And the lady is my lady starlight

Time slips right on away
But why should I care
What people say
I will watch over lady starlight
Looking for starlight

Dance she dances a valley
And Rudi is the king
I laugh when she's happy
The power's in my hands
And I must be a man

Looking for starlight
The lady made it allright
She was the lady
And I knew right from the start
Sweet lady starlight
Come on and make it tonight
You turn it on so easy
And the lady is my lady starlight

Keep It In
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

If you want power
If you got power
Keep it in
Don't need no distraction
You got my reaction
Keep it in

Hold on to what you've got
Hold on oh, yeah
Hold on to what you've got
Hold on

Take me to the tower
Take me to the tower
Keep me in
Set my soul on fire
Burn me with desire
Keep me in

Hold on to what you've got
Hold on oh, yeah
Hold on to what you've got
Hold on

If you want the power
If you got the power
Keep it in
Take me to the tower
Take me to the tower
Keep me in

Hold on to what you've got
Hold on, yeah, yeah
Hold on to what you've got
Hold onback to top
4th of July
(Connolly/Priest/Scott/Tucker)

The fool got up and hit my face
I couldn't make it to the door
I took a sip and drained the tap
And life became a thing to stab
Aha

I couldn't understand it
My days were in a daze
Is it bloody Sunday
I'd better save my prayers
Oh yeah, oh yeah

And when the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higher

Believe the lies I told myself
I wasn't into something I own
No way
I held my breath I count to ten
So turn around round round
And do it again

I couldn't understand it
My life was all a blaze
Is it bloody Sunday
My days were in a daze

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higher

And when the stars fell down
You know I' m gonna burn up the town
It's the 4th of July
And I was getting so high

When the stars came down
I was higher than the 4th of July
Whizzing right across the sky
High, high, higherback to top
