Lyrics
SIDE A

1. BACK STREET KIDS

I'm just another back street kid
Rock'n'roll music is the only thing
I really dig
Can't stop the music going 'round
Inside my head
I'm a rock'n'roll soldier
Gonna play it until I'm dead
Nobody I know will ever take
My rock'n'roll away from me
Sitting in a back seat
Of a shiny limousine
Living in a taxi
Can't remember where I've been playin' my music
Sitting in my hotel room
Writing about the stars
And thinking 'bout the hand of doom
Nobody I know will ever take
My rock'n'roll away from me
Living life comes easy
If you know which way you're going
Got see yourself in other's eyes surprised
Living like I want to
Don't come easy,but I'm trying
Sorting out what's true
And what are lies, it's wise
Brought up in a back street
Living with the salt of the land
Seems that now my music's
Playing of my tax demands
So listen to the music
Want to see you getting so high
'cause I'm a back street rocker
And I will be till the day
Nobody I know will ever take
My rock'n'roll away from me


2. ROCK 'N' ROLL DOCTOR

Well, I'm sick and tired of hearing
'bout the world and hang ups
Gonna get myself together
Take a ride down town
Gotta see my rock'n'roll doctor [3]
I gotta see him, see him today
He's gonna blow me away
He makes me happy when
I'm feeling down, yeah
Takes away my worry
Takes away my frown
Gotta see my rock'n'roll doctor [3]
I gotta see him, see him today
He's gonna blow me away
If you wanna feel groovy
Give the doctor a call
Yeah!
Doctor rock will help you any time at all
Gotta see my rock'n'roll doctor [3]
I gotta see him, see him today
He's gonna blow me away


3. DIRTY WOMEN

The neon lights are shining on me again
I walk the lonely streets in search of a friend
I need a lady to help me to get through the night,through the night
If I could find one, then everything should be alright
The sleepy city is dreaming the night away
But on the street I watch tomorrow becoming today
I see a man he's got taken away women for sale,yes, for sale
Guess that's the answer, 'cause taken away women don't fail
Oh, dirty women, they don't mess around [2]
you got me coming, you got me coming around
Oh, dirty women, they don't mess around
Walking the streets I wonder
Will it ever happen
Gotta be good then
Everything will be O.K.
If I could score tonight
Then I will end up happy
A woman for sale is
Gonna help me save my day.


4. NEVER SAY DIE

People going nowhere, taken for a ride
Looking for the answers that they know inside
Searching for a reason, looking for a rhyme
Snow White's mirror said "partners in crime!"

Don't they ever have to worry?
Don't you ever wonder why?
It's a part of me that tells you
Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die
Never, never, never say die again

Sunday's satisfaction, Monday's home and dry
Truth is on the doorstep, welcome in the lie
All dressed up in sorrow, got no place to go
Hold back, `till it's ready, taking it slow

Don't they ever have to worry?
Don't you ever wonder why?
It's a part of me that tells you
Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die
Never, never, never say die again

Don't you ever say die
Don't you ever say die
Never say die

Panic, silver lining, writing's on the wall
Children get together, you can save us all
Future's on the corner, throwing us a die
Slow down, turn around, everything's fine

There's no need to have a reason
There's no need to wonder why
It's a part of me that tells you
Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die
Never, never, never say die again


SIDE B

1. SHOCK WAVE

There's no reason for you to run
You can't escape the fate of the chosen one
Black moon rising, in a blood red sky
This time you realise that you're gonna die

Drinking your blood brew is your answer
That's what you plan to do
No dreaming, time you cheat this master
You're on your own going through

Wind of mist has taken over your mind
And you think you're on your own
Don't believe you are the only one here
Look around, you're not alone

Feel the forces from another world
Ghostly shadows fill your mind
Evil power hanging over you
As you freeze, you're like a child
Look behind you!

Somebody's calling
Someone is near
Feel yourself falling
Falling with fear
You tell yourself you're dreaming
You realise you're screaming
You know that this shouldn't happen to you
You tell yourself that it's scary too
But there is nothing you can do, oh!

Ghostly shadows from the other world
Evil forces in your mind
Trapped between the worlds of life and death
Frozen in the realms of time
Look behind you!

You feel yourself falling, you're at the end of the line
Your body is crawling, but your senses are blind
Cold, cold feelings are running through your brains
Ice cold fingers, running through your veins


2. AIR DANCE

She sits in silence, in her midnight world
Her faded pictures, of her dancing girls
Her, distant dreamer, on the seas of time
Her happy memories, dancing through her mind

In days of romance
She was the queen of dance
She'd dance the night away

And as the seasons turn the days to years
She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers
The days grow lonely for the dancing queen
And now she dances only in her dreams

In days of romance
She was the queen of dance
She'd dance the night away, away, away, away


3. JOHNNY BLADE

Tortured and twisted, he walks the streets alone
People avoid him, they know the street's his own
Cold blade of silver, his eyes they burn so wild
Mean as a tiger, society's own child

Go the tiger, burn in hate
You know you have to, Johnny Blade
He's the meanest guy around his town
One look and he will cut you down
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade

Life has no meaning, and Death's his only friend
Will fate surprise him, where will he meet his end?
He feels so bitter, yes he's so full of hate
To die in the gutter, I guess that's Johnny's fate

Rivals all across the land
He kills them with his knife in hand
He's the meanest guy around his town
One look and he will cut you down
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade
Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade

Well you know that Johnny's a spider
And his web is the city at night
He's a victim of modern frustration
That's the reason he's so ready to fight

He's the one that should be afraid
What will happen to you, Johnny Blade?

Oh he knows his future's decided
And he ain't gonna change it, no way
He was born to die in the gutter
He'll keep fighting `till the end of his days

Been alone all through his life
His only friend is a switchblade knife
He's the one who should be afraid
What will happen to you, Johnny Blade?

You fool the people
Who's fooling who?
It's time to listen
Who's fool are you?
