Lyrics


1. R.U. READY TO ROCK

Come on come on thru the stations of night
Come on come on everybody's waiting
Come on come on with the signal in sight
Come on come on there's a new tune playing

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
But who will rock with you
Oh woman with you

Come on come on thru the cities of night
Come on come on everybody's praying
Come on come on for the wonder of light
Come on come on there's a new dance breaking

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
But who will rock with you
Oh woman with you

I ain't gonna catch those countdown blues
I ain't gonna catch those countdown blues
I only love to be born again
I only love to be born again
I only love to be born again

Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am
Are you ready to rock?
Yes I am




2. 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




3. ASTRONOMY

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Like acid and oil on a madman's face
His reason tends to fly away

Like lesser birds on the four winds
Like silver scrapes in May
Now the sands become a crust
And most of you have gone away

Come Susy dear, let's take a walk
Just out there upon the beach
I know you'll soon be married
And you want to know where the winds come from

Well it's never said at all
On the map that Carrie reads
Behind the clock back there you know
At the four winds bar

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Four winds at the four winds bar
Two doors locked and windows barred
One door let to take you in
The other one just mirrors it
Hey, hey, hey, hey

In hellish glare and inference
The other one's a duplicate
The queenly flux, eternal light
Or the light that never warms (repeat twice)

The clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
Out at you from their hiding place
Miss Carrie nurse and Suzy dear
Would find themselves at the four winds bar

It's the nexus of the crisis
The origin of storms
Just the place to hopelessly
Encounter time and then came me
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Call me Desdenova, eternal light
These gravely digs of mine
Will surely prove a sight
And don't forget my dog, fixed and consequent

Astronomy...a star (repeat indefinitely)




4. KICK OUT THE JAMS

(Instrumental)




5. GODZILLA

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town

Oh no, they say he's got to go go go Godzilla
Oh no, there goes Tokyo go go Godzilla

History shows again and again
How nature points up the folly of men




6. (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 goodby...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




7. WE GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS PLACE

In this dirty old part of the city,
Where the sun refused to shine.
People tell me there aint no use in lyin'.

My little girl you're so young and pretty,
and one thing I know is true.
You'll be dead before your time is through.

See my daddy in bed,he's dyin'
you know his hair is turning gray.
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away

[Chorus:]
We gotta work
work
We gotta work
work
work
work
work

We gotta get out of this place.
If it's the last thing we ever do.
We gotta get out of this place.
Girl there's a better life,
for me and you

[Repeat all]
