1. THIS AIN'T THE SUMMER OF LOVE

Feeling easy on the outside
But not so funny on the inside
Feel the sound, pray for rain
For this is the night we ride

This ain't the garden of eden
There ain't no angels above
And things ain't like what they used to be
And this ain't the summer of love

Lock all your doors from the outside
The key will dangle by the inside
You may begin to understand
That this is the night we ride

This ain't the garden of eden
There ain't no angels above
And things ain't like what they used to be
And this ain't the summer of love

On the night we ride...this ain't the summer of love.

This ain't the garden of eden
There ain't no angels above
And things ain't like what they used to be
And this ain't the summer of love
This ain't the summer, this ain't, this ain't
This ain't the summer of love.


2. TRUE CONFESSIONS

True, true confessions, I lied
True, true confessions, I lied
Spent all night with candy's eyes
Dragged myself cross the warm blind side
Spent all night with candy's eyes
Dragged myself cross the warm blind side

True, true confession, she cried
True, true confession, she cried
Stand in the doorway in a jealous rage
Drag myself cross her wild terrain
Stand in the doorway in a jealous rage
Drag myself cross her wild terrain

True, true confessions, we tried
True, true confessions, we tried
Naked, exposed like fine rock-n-roll
Perfect as strangers, imperfect as love
Naked, exposed like fine rock-n-roll
Perfect as strangers, imperfect as love
We're never sorry, we're never sad
We're modern lovers, what fun we had.


3. (DON'T FEAR) THE REAPER

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain we can be like they are
Come on baby (Don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (Don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (Don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man...

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (Like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (Redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday (We can be like they are)
Come on baby (Don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (Don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (Don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man ...

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared (Saying don't be afraid)
Come on baby (And she had no fear)
And she ran to him (Then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye (She had become like they are)
She had taken his hand (She had become like they are)
Come on baby (Don't fear the reaper)


4. E.T.I. (EXTRA TERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE)

I hear the music, daylight disc
Three men in black said, "Don't report this"
"Ascension," and that's all they said
Sickness now, the hour's dread

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news

I'm in fairy rings and tower beds
"Don't report this," three men said
Books by the blameless and by the dead
King in yellow, queen in red

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news

Dead leaves always give up motion
I no longer feel the motion
Where prophecy fails, the falling motion
"Don't report this, agents of fortune"

All praise
He's found the awful truth, Balthazar
He's found the saucer news


5. THE REVENGE OF VERA GEMINI

You're boned like a saint
With the consciousness of a snake

You're the kind of girl
I'd like to find
Face like an angel
But you're boned like the devil

Your eyes have shifted from me
Everyone saw what you did
You have slipped from beneath me
Like a false and nervous squid

Oh no more horses horses
We're gonna swim like a fish
Into the hole, in which you planned to ditch me
My lovely Vera Marie

You planned to leave me cold
But you'll never get your wish
On the 24th of May
I'll gather up your reins

You filled me with a vengeance
And you touched me with your breath
I'm gonna pull you from this dance
You're gonna ride so easily

Oh no more horses horses
We're gonna swim like a fish
Into the hole, in which you planned to ditch me
My lovely Vera Marie

I was your victim
I was well deceived
Hell's built on regret
But I love your naked neck

And evil lies that you told me
Could make me believe your two-faced
Because two faces have you
And they're both gonna go

Oh no more horses horses
We're gonna swim like a fish
Into the hole, in which you planned to ditch me
My lovely Vera Gemini


6. SINFUL LOVE

You're over my shoulder, I think I'm possessed
Your constant undertone, is making me toothless
Times come to trim you out of my life
Gonna cut you out, baby, out of my life

Dare-devil, she-devil, printer's-devil, evil
I love you like sin, but I won't be your pigeon

The power that I give you, I'm so sick of your voice
In my body, You don't give me no choice
But to boot you, honey, to give you the shove
So take back your despot, I'll keep you love

Dare-devil, she-devil, printer's-devil, evil
I love you like sin, but I won't be your pigeon

I'm searching by symbols, looking for a pistol
To laser you out, it looks like a keyhole
I'll just stick my key back, seamless and whole
No more idols, got my own self control

Dare-devil, she-devil, printer's-devil, evil
I love you like sin, but I won't be your pigeon


7. TATTOO VAMPIRE

I went down last night with a tattoo madam
To a nude dagger fantasy domain
Wrapped in hell, I lost my breath
Chest to stimulating chinese breast

Grisly smiles, that don't flake off
Corny-colored demons leering
Vampire photos, sucking the skin

Seeding the night at the inker's parlor
Flash permabrand pricked for a dollar
Her wrist surreal a heart and flying skull
Lettered "Life and love pass swiftly"

Grisly smiles, that don't flake off
Corny-colored demons leering
Vampire photos, sucking the skin


8. MORNING FINAL

He cast a grim shadow
Through the busy street
Said he was a junkie
And he punctuated his walk with a gun

Motiveless murder
The papers scream
The cops all said
The crowd was iced by the sight

Oh baby don't it make you feel so bad
Dark clouds are over the street
After what I read, I can hardly feel my heart...
My heart beat

Down the subway stairs
After him they leapt
An echo snap and scream of fire
The hot pursuit was done

For the last time he felt the light
And gave up his last fight

Oh baby don't it make you feel so bad
Dark clouds are over the street
After what I read, I can hardly feel my heart...
My heart beat


9. TENDERLOIN

I come to you in a blue blue room
By some abuse and some heart
You raise the blinds say, "Let's have light on life,
Let's watch it fall apart. Let's watch it fall apart."

Night time flowers, evening roses
Bless this garden that never closes
Treat her gently, treat her kind
Tenderloin will last all night

I'm feeling hungry, have another line
So faith is taken up
You raise your eyes say, "That's just like life,
There's never quite enough. There's just never quite enough."

Night time flowers, evening roses
Bless this garden that never closes
Treat her gently, treat her kind
Tenderloin will last all night

I come to you in a blue blue room
By some abuse and some heart
You raise the blinds say, "Let's have light on life,
Let's watch it fall apart. Let's watch it fall apart."


10. DEBBIE DENISE

She kept the light open, all night long
For me to come home, and sing her my song
Oh Debbie Denise was true to me
She'd wait by the window, so patiently
And I'd come on home with my hair hanging down
She'd pin it up, and softly smile

But I was out rolling with my band
And I was out rolling with my band

I never realized, she was so undone
I didn't suspect she had no life of her own
She was so true but she was a she
She was just there I would just come
Stumbling in she'd show me she'd care
I didn't care cause she was just there

But I was out rolling with my band
And I was out rolling with my band

I wouldn't come home for weeks at a time
She wouldn't accept that she was free
Oh Debbie Denise was true to me
She'd wait by the window so bitterly

Wanting me to come close, I guess I noticed
I couldn't see, so what could I say
That more affection could I show her
I had only one thing on my mind

When I come to her, she'd pin back my hair
And out past the fields out the window I'd stare

Where I was out rolling with my band
I was out rolling with my band


11. FIRE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN (ORIGINAL VERSION)

Death comes sweeping through the hallway
Like a lady's dress
Death comes driving down the highway
In it's sunday best

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away

Swept her up and off my wavelength
Swallowed her up
Like the ocean in a fire
So thick and grey

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away

Death comes driving
I can't do nothing
Death goes
There must be something
There must be something
That remains
There must be something
There must be something

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby
Took my baby away


12. SALLY (DEMO)

Oh no, I can't believe it's Sally
Oh I must accuse you Sally
There's scratches on your knees,
Where you been all morning
I think you've been down, down to the briar patch,
Maybe someone was with you

Oh no, I can't believe it's Sally,
Oh I must accuse you Sally
There's brambles in your hair,
You've been rolling in the roses,
I think you've been down down, to the briar patch, Sally,
Thorn's caught in your shoulder

Oh no, I can't believe it's Sally,
Oh I, must accuse you Sally,
I think...
The morning sun was risin',
Venus was never so clear,
And you were messin' with the godess of love,

Come on now, over here
Let me take a look at you,
Just look at you, you got bruises everywhere,
You've got brambles in your hair,
You've got scratches on your kness,
Always easy to see,
You've been messing around, Sally,
And you ain't been messin' with me

Oh I know now,
Somebody with my girl,
Torn pants, torn pants,
Juice all down your dress,
You've been rippin' it up with someone,
Better confess
Confess,
Confess,
Confess,
You better confess!

14. DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY

I smoke a cigarette while waiting in your bath
And I wait for you for an hour and a half
And I look out the window where the clouds fall down in rain
And I look across the river where they dance the night away

I smoke a cigarette while waiting in your bath
And I wait for you for an hour and a half
And I look out the window where the sky falls down in rain
And I look across the river where they dance the night away

Dance the night away
Dance the night away without me
Dance the night away
Dance the night away

I smoke a cigarette while I wait in your bath
And I wait alone for you an hour and a half
And I look out the window where the sky falls down in rain
And I look across the river where they dance the night away

Dance the night away
Dance the night away without me
Dance the night away
Dance the night away
Dance the night away, yeah
Dance the night away
