ELEVEN EVEN LYRICS

D TRAIN     (D. ROTER)

 

Take the D Train, D Train, D Train, D Train!

I saw a man with a handkerchief on his face

He said his nose had been stolen 

by some thieves from outer space

He fell to his knees and began to cry

Please don’t let them take my eyes

On a D Train  to Brooklyn A D Train to Brooklyn

 

See that woman with the red dress on

She gonna ride that train all night long

She got somewhere to go but she don’t know when 

She’s going to Brighton Beach and back again

 

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

That’s a D Train to Brooklyn

 

Wheels are screeching, heads are turning

It smells like a fire but nothing is burning.

All those bodies moving with the heat

Way down below the street.

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

That’s a D Train to Brooklyn

 

Guardian angel, hooker, priest

Black muslim, puerto rican, transit police

A gimp and a blind man with a dog who could see

1000 other faces like you…and me

 

D Train  to Brooklyn

On the D Train to Brooklyn

 

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

Ridin a D Train  to Brooklyn

(All night long)

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

Ride, ride, ride

D Train  to Brooklyn

Ride the D Train

D Train

to Brooklyn

 

HEY SHERIFF    (A BOUCHARD, M. BARKAN)

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Something was going down wrong

Set me free

It was a game we all played along

Set me free

Someone said something and then a shot

Set me free

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Some guy had a piece in his hand

Set me free

It wasn’t me you understand

Set me free

There was another guy on the floor

Set me free

And a whole lot of blood and gore

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Sometimes life gotta be that way

Set me free

Sometimes you lose and you gotta pay

Set me free

A reflex, a sneeze or a cough

Set me free

The bad happens when you piss someone off

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me   WHOA NO!

 

KEEP ROLLIN' ON  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

Ah, well, the whole wide world has gone insane

The wheels are flyin’ off this crazy train

Everybody swingin’ atcha left and right

Like a barroom brawl in a hurricane

 

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

Big bad bullies, try to rape your mind

Put you down try to waste your time.

Cherish every moment in this hard knock life

It all adds up at the finish line.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

 

If you're stuck I got your back

When I'm broke you give me luck

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

Rats from space out to steal your name

Steal your cash try to cause you pain.

Rise on up, keep your eye on the sky

Win, win, win the human game.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

if you fall I'll help you land

If I'm down you lend a hand

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches. 

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

Left, Right, Roll with the Punches

 

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

If you fall I’ll pick you up

If I’m low you lend a hand

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

TANK MAN  (J. BOUCHARD)

 

A column of tanks

Rolled toward the plaza

Man carrying shopping bags

Stepped in front of the war machines

Waving his arms

And refusing to move.

He became a symbol 

of resistance

Against the unjust 

everywhere

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back

Tiananmen Square was the place 

Where Davey stood down the Philistines

He had all that he could take.

Coming apart at the seams.

He became a symbol 

of resistance

Against the unjust 

everywhere

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back

 

SOLO

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back

 

RENDEZVOUS IN THE PALE MOONLIGHT  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

Under the moon I hear her call my name

Across the boundaries of another time

I see her eyes lookin’ for me

And in the parlor of an ancient dream

I feel her gentle breath upon my face

My destiny is not what it seems

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

Runnin’ through the valley the cold cement alley

Through the wind in the night

Through the image in the back of my mind

Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight

I’ve known her voice for a thousand years

I’ve heard her footsteps through a million hallways

Singing high like a bird on a wire

And all the lovers who have come and gone

She is the one who calls eternally

Slipping away her secret desire

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

Runnin’ through the valley, the cold cement alley

Through the wind in the night

Through the image in the back of my mind

Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight

 

BREAK THROUGH THE WALL  (J. SHIRLEY, J.BOUCHARD)

 

I race through the streets

I push through a door

I pound up the stairs

Through blood run across the next floor.

I come to a gate,

But I bust on through

We push through a window

both me and you

 

chorus:

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, no

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go. (AND WE’RE READY...)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go. (Oh, Oh, Oh...)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

 

Gotta cross the frozen river

I fall through the thin ice

I’m turning blue down there

But I’m up in a trice

I kick my way through a door 

And I race down the hall

Nothing will stop me 

As long as I hear you call

 

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, nowhoa]

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go--

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

SOLO

 

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, no [whoa]

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go. (AND WE’RE READY... bv’s)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go. (Oh, Oh, Oh...asides)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

HEAR ME TALKIN NOW

WE GOTTA MAKE IT

YEAH, READY NOW!

YEAH YEAH YEAH BREAK IT ALL THE WAY!

 

BLOOD FOR BLOOD  (A. BOUCHARD, K. VARGAS, D. DUNAWAY)

 

Blood for blood

Anger feeds rage

Revenge breaks out

From its hateful cage

Fire burns hotter

Violence in the wind

Out of control

And many lives will end

 

Chorus:

Hate fuels hate

Death and despair

Cursing hearts

A cross to bear

Trapped in passion

Inflicting pain

Poisoned emotions

Stalks the land. (8 beats)

Blood for Blood 3x Huh!

 

We all want peace

We want a life of ease

But deep down we are

Our own worst enemies

The evil inside us

Is hidden away

Locked in our dark souls

Where it must stay

 

Chorus (repeat above)

SOLO

Bridge

Written in the stars

Since the dawn of man

A universal love

A higher kind of plan

We can rise above

Our better selves must shine

Let the goodness flow

For you and yours and mine

We all want peace 

We want a life of ease

But remember deep down

We are our own worst enemies

 

Blood for Blood

Comes an ancient reign

An eye for an eye

Makes our world insane

Hate fuels hate

Conditioning fears

Killing your spirit

Sadness and tears

   

Hate fuels hate

Death and despair

Cursing hearts

A cross to bear

Trapped in passion

Inflicting the pain

Poisoned emotions

Stalks the land

Blood for Blood

 

SIMPLE ANSWERS KILL  (J. SHIRLEY, J. BOUCHARD)

 

Abdul lives on my street

we stop and talk about work

We both got some  funny beliefs

human life sho is  fulla quirks

there’s a guy who hid on a ship

now he lives with his folks, in Queens

He had to hide, just to get here

but doin nothin leads to nothin

and this guy’s got dreams

his guy’s got dreams

simple answers kill

simple answers may eat you alive

simple answers will throw you DOWN

a long, spiral dive

simple answers kill, until

we learn to ask another question

simple answers kill, 

life’s a complex invention.

I was at office work,

they said Manuel just had to go

the real truth lurks, it hides,

till finally we know

everyone’s an arrow fired from their mama 

one fateful day

people don’t care to know

where it lands,or if it stays

Or if it stays

simple answers kill

simple answers may eat you alive

simple answers will

throw  you DOWN 

a long, spiral dive

simple answers kill, until we learn to ask another question

simple answers kill / life’s a complex invention

life’s a fucked up invention

life’s a fucked up invention

 

 

DAY AFTER DAY (RUNNING AWAY)   (D.DUNAWAY)

 

I am yours, are you mine?

Or are we just killin’ precious time?

We’re livin’ on a fault line runnin’ away

Though it cuts like a knife

I have to tell you it’s your life

None of us can survive runnin’ away

 

Day After Day Day After Day

Day After Day runnin’ away

 

You’re so young, he’s so old

He’s got you locked in his stronghold

I’m tired of lookin’ through a keyhole down on my knees

I’ll back you up, I’ll see you through

One plus one plus one will never do

This can be his waterloo I’ll take you away

 

Day After Day Day After Day

Day After Day no runnin’ away

Day after day no runnin

Day after day no runnin

Day after day no runnin

 

 

Lets have no more

no runnin

away

No no more runnin away

Runnin away

(No runnin, no runnin etc)

Day After Day Day After Day

Day After Day no runnin’ away

 

BITTER GAME  (A. BOUCHARD, D.DUNAWAY)

 

She appears out of nowhere 

From an invisible trail 

She's got a million stories 

She never ever tell

Her face pale as a tombstone 

Her eyes concealing a frown 

Spinning lies of distraction 

As she remains under ground.

 

Bitter Game, Bitter Game 

She's playing her Bitter Game

 

Winning your trust with her graces 

Flashing intimate smiles 

While she shoots secret photos 

And peeks at your files

She gains all her riches 

Stealing name after name 

That's why she's after you 

Zero guilt zero shame

 

Chorus

 

All her pills are to die for

Get your world spinning 'round 

You'll be flying so high 

Then come crashing down 

And while you are sleeping 

Without a gun or a knife 

Through your muffled pillow 

You'll cry for your life

 

Chorus 

 

(Bitter Game)

Then she'll smile at her victim 

Without any shame

No room for mercy

In her bitter game

 

JUMPED THE GUN  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

When i was young

Full of rage

Lookin for fame 

On a killer stage

Heard her yell

Loud as Hell

Callin’ my name when the curtain fell

 

Rock and roll

Killer show

Saw the girl in the second row

Backstage door

She followed me in

Pulled me in the dressing room with a big grin

Moved too fast she was out of control

First base, second base, locked and load

Pressure Cooker boiling I had to explode

 

And i JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me crazy and I jumped the gun

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me crazy and I jumped the

Sorry girl I dropped the ball

But would you mind if I give you a call

She said that’s ok that’s alright

You’ll get another chance later 

to-night

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me crazy and I jumped the gun

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me crazy and I jumped the gun

Party barely started I was already done

 

 

MILLION MILES MORE LYRICS

Background vocals by Tish and Snooky on all songs

PROPHETS DUKES AND NOMADS

A million miles and we're riding high

To fight the dragons from an era long gone by

A lifetime never lasted so long

Thundering horses bolt away to worlds beyond

We curse the Nomads as they're riding away

Arrows flying through the sky so dark and gray

The battle rages before the dawn

We feel the dragon's fire



Prophets, Dukes and Nomads

And strong will live, but some fade away

Figures along the highway.


[Break]

And the Dukes want to take control

They conjure black magic while procuring your soul

And psychic Prophets with their visions to tell

Reveal a path to the stars in their magic spells.

The battle rages before the dawn

We feel the dragon's fire

Prophets, Dukes and Nomads

Where the strong will live but some fade away

Figures along the highway.



Prophets, Dukes and Nomads....



HELLFIRE HURRY (featuring Buck Dharma - Lead Guitar)

Get outta my way, coming through

Get outta my hair, no time to lose

Peddle to the metal, detectors on

Blink your eyes and I'll be gone

Hellfire Hurry  Show no mercy

Hellfire Hurry  I'll make it back baby yeah



Burning hot nitro in my cool blue car

Driving through the Sun like a shooting star

Dark shades, I'm cutting' down the glare

It's a treacherous road but I don't care



Hellfire Hurry   Show no mercy

Hellfire Hurry  I'll make it back baby yeah



So far away when she called my phone

Said she'd make it worth while if I make it home

So look out world I'm gonna rattle your bones

So watch your ass, baby, you're in the Danger Zone



Hellfire Hurry  Show no mercy

Hellfire Hurry  I'll make it back baby yeah

Hellfire Hurry  Show no mercy

Hellfire Hurry  I'll make it back baby

I'll make it back whoa yeah

I'll make it back baby, yeah



HALLOW'S GRAVE  (featuring Alice Cooper - vocals)

At the end of Fifth Avenue, in the morning about two

In the park, in the dark,

as I walked through the shadows of the moon

A voice called to me and I looked up to see

A striking young woman

was hanging from a branch of a tree.



I stopped dead. . . in my tracks

With her piercing eyes. . . I was trapped like rat

Come here little sweet thing. . . Forget all you know.

Me and my friends want to

Welcome . . . you to the show



Then up from the ground came a howling sound

Skeletons came shouting

and screaming and jumping around

Spirits came up from the ground

They started dancing around

I was in serious trouble.

When they did the skeleton shuffle. Oh No, Oh No, Oh No, Oh No . . .



We all rattled and rolled like manics

All around Washington Square

Poking me with their fingers

All bony and bare

While the woman was swinging

from an old Elm tree

Oh No Her neck was broken

but her spirit was free. Was free . . .Was free . . .Was free . . .



EVERYBODY GOES INSANE

Last night in my dream Felt troubles on the way

Searching for directions Where time was slipping away

A world of deep frustration Pushing you up the wall

Thinking about the future Hoping you don't fall. . . and you don't fall



Choosing good and evil is the same since time began

Nobody is perfect, we do the best we can



Everybody goes insane (sometimes)

Everybody goes insane (just a little bit)

Everybody goes insane (sometimes)

Everybody goes insane (just a little bit)



She woke up in the morning In light of a brand new day

The need for reassurance, She can find a better way

All the headlines screaming You walk on dangerous ground

Coming to conclusion A change is coming down . . . it's coming down.



Just to find the answer before your head explodes

You need break the cycle of the darkness in your soul



CHORUS

When worries and exhaustion Start to bring you down

All you see is madness And menace all around

Don't worry if you stumble and choose the darker door

Looking for an answer The choice is yours



CHORUS....



I'LL FOREVER STICK AROUND

When I'm sad you chase the clouds

And when I'm glad you're like a spring bouquet

When I lose direction you help me find my way

That's why I stick around



You and I pass the test of time

Every hill and mountain that we climb

If I could be the lyric then you would be my rhyme

Yeah, That's why I stick around



I'll Forever Stick Around

'Cause you love me up and down

My head is in the stars but you keep me on the ground

Yeah, That's why I stick around



When the world comes crashing in and it's been a lousy day

No one's had anything good to say

I wanna slam the door

Beat my head against the wall

But I know it doesn't matter at all.



'Cause when you laugh you melt my heart away

And when you smile I'll do anything you say

Hold me in your arms and I know you've sealed my fate

Yeah, That's why I stick around



I'll Forever Stick Around

'Cause you love me up and down

My head is in the stars but you keep me on the ground

Yeah, That's why I stick around

Oh, That's why I stick around



MODERN LOVE (STALKING TIME) (featuring Goldy McJohn - organ)

In the nut house I saw you in my sleep

From the nut house I took a little creep

This is...... Modern Love



In the nut house they gave me a shock

They told me I was over you well I guess not

This is...... Modern Love

And I'm putting in stalking time



With your pants on backwards you show up at home

The guests ask for details you say leave it alone



The artist struts in somebody else's shoes

But it feels transitional so you feel abused

This is...... Modern Love

This is...... Modern Love

And I'm putting in stalking time



In the nut house they locked me in a cell

With your photograph showing it off well

This is...... Modern Love



Got no sense of shame so I can report

I've got your nude photos stuck up in my shorts

This is...... Modern Love

And I'm putting in stalking time



USED CAR  (featuring Giles Robson - harmonica)

I'm afraid of myself this morning What I might do

Afraid of myself Coming to

This is a used car I'm driving

Better leave me alone

With the scars of the open road

I'm driving home. Afraid of myself



How many times have I lifted the shade

and peeked out on my life

There's a motor running coming from a long way off

with anonymous headlights

In a dark room I'm waiting for the shadows to move

Scared of the dead at night

Scared that death might come

Through anonymous headlights.



I wish I wish I wish I wish I wish I wish I wish I wish

I wish I wish I could be brave Each car passing SOLO



I'm afraid of myself this morning Behind a screen

Afraid of myself And what I'll dream



This is a used car I'm driving Rust over bone

With the scars of the open road I'm driving home

Afraid of myself



I wish I wish I wish I wishI wish I wish I wish I wish

I wish I wish I could be brave Each car passing, I'm Driving Home ....



SUPERNATURAL LOVE  (featuring Deniz Tek - guitar)

I've been known

To paint a picture

That’s the way

I feel close to you

It’s all I can do



I see your face

In a vision

And recreate it 

With precision to

Share my supernatural love for you



There was no doubt

Of what could be

When you brought out

The best in me, it’s true

I still dream about you

And every time 

I feel discouraged

I think of when you

Gave me courage too

It’s my supernatural love for you



Oh I'm ready now

Oh Take me away

Oh I'm ready now

Take me away



I call your name

When the night falls

Cause that’s the only

Time I get through

With my supernatural love for you



TRAIN OF THOUGHT

All aboard yelled a man in a suit of black

The heavy locomotive blew steam across the track

It was the strangest fare that girl had ever bought

A one-way ticket on the train of thought



A wheel started rolling to empty good byes

She gazed out the window there were tears in her eyes

Life’s hardest lessons she’d ever been taught

Drove her to travel on the train of thought



Tickets yelled the man in the suit of black

He punched hers slowly and gently handed it back

She said where am I going? He said I hear that a lot

It’s all up to you, dear, on the train of thought

(Train of thought Train of thought)



A loud whistle blew smoke darkened the sky

A man sat down beside her he looked her straight in the eye

The journey can be long, but I hope that it’s not

I pray that you change your mind on the train of thought



He pointed to her hand she was holding a knife

He said fight all the darkness fight, fight, fight for your life

You've always got friends that's all you ever got

Everything is wasted on this train of thought

(Train of thought Train of thought)



She knew it was true his tale of lost dreams

She believed him when he said it's not all as bad as it seems.

Life is worth living, you gotta give it a shot

And she chose to come home from the train of thought SOLO



riff: (Train of thought Train of thought)

(Train of thought ......)
