Mainline Riders
Open up your veins I want to get into your blood let me in...
The visions of the night reveal the truth of light we begin...

Reality's the dream of things you've never seen pulls you in....
The guilty things you fear have the means to reappear all the sin...
Main line riders oh but your starting to fly...

Give freedom to my brain to allow my astral plain to exist....
The universal souls of ages yet untold don't resist...
I need some help this time to reach the other side let me in...
Tho I start to drift away there's a price that you must pay don't give in...
Main line riders oh but your getting too high...

The eagle's learnt to fly but now were up as high you cam win...
Tho the elders hold the key to return thru centuries let them in...
Main line riders oh but your getting too high...

But I'm gonna get you up even higher...
When you scream in the night you called liar...
I can touch at the sky like a flier I'm a...
Main line rider, I'm a Main line rider, I'm a Main line rider...
 
 
Sugar Rain
You woke me up one morning when the rain was pouring down
And the lightning in the sky was really blinding me
Tantalised and tease me till I didn't know what to do
So I put on my hat and coat and ran you away
But you were just another rainbow
Trying to make the sun go in the sky
But you were just another rainbow
Trying to make the sun go in the sky

I moved in your direction
A spectrum through the clouds the colours in your eyes
Kept on calling me
You knew just how to please me
And layed me on the line
I couldn't help but follow you were leading me
But you were just another rainbow (I hear you calling)
Trying to make the sun go in the sky (I come a running)

Followed you down the stairways
Followed you down the stairways

You need calling you've been fooling me
I got pulled in but I broke free
Then I run my hands down the curves of your body
Searching for your pot of gold
But as the night drew near you start to disappear
Nothing left for me to hold
Woo woo woo woo
Wooooo
 
 
Street Fighting Lady
No use running
'Cause you keep finding me
You're the hunter
I'm the game
I've got my freedom
But you crucified me,
I'm the prey but I don't want to get away
If you want it you've got it
Whole lot of trouble
Street fighting lady
If you want it you've got it
Street fighting lady

No use running cause you keep finding me
I'm running scared and your to blame
I couldn't see why you satisfied me
Then you say your going to throw it all away
If you want it you've got it whole lot of trouble
Street fighting lady
If you want it you've got it
Street fighting lady

Got to get to bed come on lay down
Your move
Caught me in your trap
Too late guess you had me fooled
But you wouldn't fool me
You won't fool me

Now I'm the hunter you can say goodbye to me
I got out your guilded cage
You keep on running but it's not so funny
'Cause when your there you find you've been nowhere
If you want it you've got it
Whole lot of trouble
Street fighting lady
If you want it you've got it
Whole lot of trouble
Street fighting lady

Got to get to bed come on lay down
Your move
Caught me in your trap
Too late guess you had me fooled
But you wouldn't fool me
You won't fool me
 
 
Hustler
You took my money and you smiled
I get my kicks from making you enjoy it
Ain't got no troubles that we couldn't beat
Till bad luck came and we
Signed on the line

You took the need for living out of me
Bin thru the rip off scene
Too many times before
I got this hatred that keeps pushing me
And if we make it you won't
Take us for a ride

Never been down so low
Never been down so low
Never been down so low
Never been down so low

You find your friends when things
Don't seem so good
The others don't come round
I lost the best friend that
I had when they put her in
The ground they took it all away
I need help from someone
Contracts full of promises
And smiles don't pay the bill
You really let me down
Took us all for fools
We couldn't make a living
But in the end it's you
Who'll lose

But you ain't going to keep us down
Whatever you give we can take it
But you ain't going to keep us down
No way
 
 
Devil's Brew
You dabbled in black magic
You had no experience
Thought you knew the answers you're a fool

Beyond the eyes of sceptics
Lie the secrets of an age
When the dead no longer
Dead begin to rise.

In the fire that is burning
Give the living back to me
With your devil's brew.

The desecrated holy stones
Add incense to the fire
As witches chant the rites
Of ancient days.

Still virgins on the altar
As the cry for sacrifice
Hides screams that seem to fade up to the sky
In the fires that are burning
Give the living back to me
With your devil's brew.

In the blackness of the night
I offer you my soul
And curse the light of day that I must fear.

In blood I write my name before the children of the dead
For the power from beneath that you can give.
 
 
Smokie
(Instrumental)
 
 
Around And Around
When I look into your face I see the danger in your eyes
Your look can turn to stone
Snakes upon the gorgons head I turn to run away instead
My body felt so cold

I hit the ground still in a haze I opened my eyes to
Realise just what I had done

I tried to fight it run and hide I lay sweating on my bed
Down and down and around and around and around....

Eve you gave my life it's light the apple you give will only
Serve to blow my mind
Seen thru Nostardamus' eyes the eagle flies thru purple skies
Pisces your end is near
Thru times of fear the ages draws near aquarius can save
Us now only time will tell

I tried to fight it run and hide I lay sweating on my bed
Down and down and around and around and around

Fly me high till you can't see me here

And tho I'm falling I fear no evil
Reveal the knowledge of the years
Someone is calling I see his vision
I seek the answers you hide here
Some doubting shadows move thru the darkness
But all the things I see are clear
But I'm still falling down down down down...
 
 
Pleasure Seekers
We are the pleasure seekers we see it in your eyes
We give you what you need yea
So you feel good inside...
Get yourself a goodtime
Get yourself a goodtime...

Some us the speed box some use the squeeze box
While others us the kings and queens
Some use black magic that turns out tragic
We take the money and we run
We take the money and we run

We are devil seekers I speeded up my mind
Served you from the gravestones I tried it from behind,
Get yourself a goodtime
Get yourself a goodtime

Some use the mainlines some take a freeride
While others use the sexy dreams
Some need the nightimes to blow their own minds...
We take the money and we run
We take the money and we run
 
 
Little Old Lady
Little old lady you play the game of life
But you can't win
Life seems so hazy but I know that you would not give in
You still laugh you still smile
And wish I'd got the time to know you better
I wish I'd got the time to know you better

Little old lady the love you gave still lingers in my tears
Turn back the pages and you still live with all your memories
You still laugh you still smile
And wish I'd got the time to know you better
I wish I'd got the time to know you better

So you we've another day patterns for a life time
Fate will lend a help in hand
Your future you decide
The eagle falls from out the sky
And signs of life are fading
All things return to where they came
I'll see you in a while
