Detail


 Debut 
Take me away 04:32
( - E. Bloom - A. Nova - )
Strange shapes light up the night

Never seen them though I hope I might
Don't ask if they are real
The men in black, their lips are sealed

Fantasy it fills my mind
To leave this place before my time
Release myself from earthly care
My dream may be your nightmare

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I'd like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on, take me away
Come on, take me away

Come here, girl, close to me
A thousand stars your eye can see
First star we see tonight
I wish I may I wish I might

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I'd like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on, take me away
Come on, take me away

I turn my hopes up to the sky
I'd like to know before I die
Memories will slowly fade
I lift my eyes and say
Come on, take me away

Eyes on fire 03:56
( - G. Winter - )
At the stroke of midnight

Staring at the phone
For the millionth time I'm all alone

I'm the guy she turns to
When her lovers leave
I'm the wildcard
She's got up her sleeve
But she don't look at me

With eyes on fire
Glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes
Burning with love and desire

I'm like a long-lost brother
I'm closer than her friends
The only one on whom she can depend

She thinks I'm sweet and gentle
She thinks the world of me
But late at night I'm not the one she needs
She never looks at me

With eyes on fire
Glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes
Burning with love and desire

Don't she, don't you see
I'm crying out loud
Can't she tell I need her now

She never looks at me with
Eyes on fire
Glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes
Burning with love and desire

She never looks at me with
Eyes on fire
Glowing like coals in the night
Hungry eyes
Reaching for me in the night

 Debut 
Shooting shark 07:09
( - D. Roeser - P. Smith - )
Well I bumped inside the magic man

And he laid some tricks on me
He said, "You do need help my friend"
I whispered, "Obviously"
He laid a spread of Jacks and Queens
And he bade me take my pick
But every face it had your face
I cried out, "I am sick"

Sick of hauling your love around
Want to run the train alone
But the engine tracks straight through your heart
And weighs me like a stone

Oh, it's a hard load to love you
It takes up all my time, having you
So familiar
Like last life's
Nursery rhyme

So I gave away the pictures
And your golden ring
And the phone calls you sent me
And the silver birds that sing
Then the man he told me something
That really brought me down
Your things were thrown away, it's true
But you were still in town

Sick of hauling your love around
Wanna run the train alone
But the engine tracks straight through your heart
And weighs me like a stone

Oh, it's a hard load to love you
It takes up all my time, having you
So familiar
Like last life's
Nursery rhyme

The magician let a message
It flashes when I hide
Accept the chains of loving
Accept or else remove yourself from her side
And do without her love
And I lay back with a steel chain
I keep it by my side
I could mail a letter to you but I still
Have my pride

Sick of hauling your love around
Wanna run the train alone
But the engine tracks straight through your heart
And weighs me like a stone

Three times I've sent you back from me
Three times my bones gone dry
And three times I've seen the shooting shark
Lighting up the sky

Oh, it's a hard load to love you, babe
It takes my breath away
The fourth time round
Is the last time round
There's nothing else to say

Veins 03:59
( - D. Roeser - R. Meltzer - )
I open my eyes

From a dreamless night
With a sense of dread
You could cut with a knife
So I'm thinking that
Maybe I killed somebody
You never know - you never know when
You might have killed somebody

Veins in my eyeballs
Damage that I've done
Veins on the stairway
Veins in my skull

I visit my friend
We have a fight
I'm drinking his whiskey
I'm wanting his wife
Then the image goes black
Did I kill somebody?
'Cause there ain't no clue, there's no clue
That I killed somebody

Veins in my eardrum
Banging at my door
Veins in my brainwaves
Veins on the floor

I get the shivers
And I've got the shakes
People screaming my name
Like there's no mistake
Can't believe it's true
Did I kill somebody?
But I just don't know, I don't know
Did I kill somebody?

Veins on the sidewalk
Veins know the score
Veins in my mind, oh
Veins evermore

 Debut 
Shadow of California 05:10
( - J. Bouchard - N. Smith - S. Pearlman - )
Beneath the freeway at the cloverleaf junction

A symbol of good luck eminates darkness
The shadow will grow to cover California
Somewhere on the road from San Bernadino
Its future is steering the past ... will not pass

Speed is the game in the shadow of kings
Where the company of angels fly
They appear at the crossroads at once in the future
Clad in the darkness on the highways of night
With no love ... from the past

Night makes right
The symbol remains
Into the darkness
Must pour the brains
In the shadow of California

Revolution by night grant me this future
Kings of the shadow on the highways of night
From San Bernadino these angels are racing
This night to your city
The host of angels ... Los Angeles

Night makes right
The symbol remains
Into the darkness
Must pour the brains
In the shadow of California

Feel the thunder 05:48
( - E. Bloom - )
Slicing throught the night 

Three riders came
Perched on American steel
Riders with no name
Even time cannot reveal
Riders with no name

On October 31st many years ago
Three friends went out for a ride
For it was a famous party night
And to party was to get high
They loaded up on beer and cocaine
Then they started their bikes with a roar
They couldn't have known that on that night
They were beginning their longest tour

Feel the thunder
Of the midnight ride
Earth torn asunder
By those who died

Onto their favorite road they rode
Leather horsemen riding three wide
Their metal beasts howled in the night
A dark spectre was their guide
They came around a curve too fast
Only time for a scream
A fiery crash of chrome and steel
Was the beginning of their longest dream

Feel the thunder
Of the midnight ride
Earth torn asunder
By those who died

Feel the thunder
Of the midnight ride
Earth torn asunder
By those who died

And the fates decreed on that night
Their souls must be tried
Now you can hear them every All Hallows Eve
Forever doomed to ride

Slicing throught the night
Three riders came
Perched on American steel
Riders with no name
Even time cannot reveal
Riders with no name

Feel the thunder
Of the midnight ride
Earth torn asunder
By those who died

Let go 03:25
( - E. Bloom - D. Roeser - I. Hunter - )
Hell-bent for leather on a moonlit night

There's a hot wind blowin'
Better hold on tight to your soul

Blue fire rising up from the deep
Burning the world when it's tryin' to sleep

So let go
Let go
Let go

Let go
Let go
Let go
C'mon let yourself go

BOC
You can be whatever you want to be
You've got the power
We've got the key
Yeah, BOC

You're a rebel and you got no friends
We all know that it all depends on rock and roll

Do you feel like they're keeping you down
Ain't no fun with your feet on the ground

So let go
Let go
Let go

Let go
Let go
Let go
Yeah let yourself go

BOC
You can be whatever you want to be
You've got the power
We've got the key

Dragon lady 04:08
( - D. Roeser - Broadway Blotto - )
Out of the smoke at the dawn of man

Out of the ocean across the sand
Reaching forth with her ancient hand
Dragon Lady

Out of the flames of a man's desire
A hair-raising voice from an evil choir
Reigning down like a freezing fire
Dragon Lady

She appears mysteriously
You don't take her seriously
Until you're under her spell

Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
Try to run but before you start
Dragon Lady's got you by the heart
Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
Dragon Lady's got you
She won't let go

Terrible lightning flashes across the sky
When the Dragon Lady shows you how to fly
Terrible lightning flashes across the sky
When the Dragon Lady shows you how to cry

Out of the cage in the center ring
Out of the crowd and straight to the king
Who's out of his mind with her mystical thing
Dragon Lady

Out of the dream and into the night
A final look makes you die of fright
No one there in the candle light
Dragon Lady

She appears outrageously
You take her courageously
Until you're under her spell

Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
Try to run but before you start
Dragon Lady's got you by the heart
Dragon Lady takes you by the heart
The Dragon Lady's got you
And she won't let go

Terrible lightning flashes across the sky
When the Dragon Lady shows you how to fly
Terrible lightning flashes across the sky
And the Dragon Lady's laughing as you die

Light years of love 04:06
( - J. Bouchard - H. Wheels - )
When we met it was a white hot star

The speed of light between two hearts
It felt like love, it sounds bizarre
But in your eyes I could see so far

Baby, baby shouldn't know no fear
Was it an angel who brought us here
Old, old souls but the love goes on
Changing life into a song

Into light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love
Of love

Our love is like the shining sea
In salty foam we can feel so free
Caress the night with our cool skin
In your arms I can be everything

We got light years, light years of love
Light years, light years of love
Of love
Of love
