DISC 1

1. BURN

The sky is red, I don't understand,
Past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
The city's a blaze, the town's on fire.
The woman's flames are reaching higher.
We were fools, we called her liar.
All I hear is "Burn!"

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm.
She said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return."
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.

You know we had no time,
We could not even try.
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand,
Past midnight I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
She makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared.
Earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"




2. MIGHT JUST TAKE YOUR LIFE

I got more than I asked for,
There ain't nothin' I need.
I took all till I had more,
I'm always takin' the lead.

Old man shakin' dice down on the street,
Try'n to make a livin' somehow
But I'm really sure about gettin' things sorted out
And I'm gettin' ready right now.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

I've been called by many names
And all of them are bad.
I can take it all the same,
It's all I've ever had.

I've got somethin' that you can't get
But one thing you can see:
Gettin' there ain't easy
But it sure was hard for me.

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

Every time I take a look
There's someone close behind.
They never used to make a pass,
The things that crossed their minds.

Now they tell me that it's all right
And they want to be my friend.
They're ridin' on my back.
When is it goin' to end?

You can't hold me,
I have told you.
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life,
Might just take your life.

Got more than I asked for,
Got more than I need.
Got more than I asked for,
Got more than I need.
Got more than I asked for,
Got more than I need.




3. LAY DOWN, STAY DOWN

I don't care if my lady's gone
As long as you give me just what I want.
I've been losin' my direction,
Got to find a new connection.

You have wasted the love I tasted,
Now I'm really gettin' hungry more and more.
Been a long time, had a bad sign.
Tell me what am I fighting for?

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down.

Lookin' for trouble, I guess that's right.
When I was young I was taught to fight.
It's been long gone since I had known,
Now I'm headin' for some more.

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down.

Let me know you feel it,
You know I really need it.
Keep on pushin' for more,
Lay down, stay down.
I got something to find,
There's one thing I really need.
I'm gonna tell you right now,
Lay down, stay down




4. MISTREATED

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'Cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I Have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'Cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'Cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-Oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind




5. SMOKE ON THE WATER

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know we'll never forget
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky




DISC 2

1. YOU FOOL NO ONE

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So hard to see you are taking your chances with me.
If I find you with some other man
You know what I'm gonna do.
Better run if you see me comin', ah.

Soon you will fall, making mistakes like before.
When you tell me lies I can see by the look in your eyes.
If you think you're gonna take me for granted,
Chasin' round with all you see,
Gonna make you live to regret it, ah.

You fool no one, waiting to see if I'm gone.
So clear to see you've had all your chances with me.
You thought that you could take me for granted
But I couldn't take it no more.
Better run when you see me comin, ah




2. SPACE TRUCKIN'

We had a lot of luck on Venus
We always had a ball on Mars
Meeting all the groovey people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealice
We're space truckin' round the the stars
Come on let's go Space Truckin'

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Pony Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral moonstop
And everynaut would dance and sway
We got music in our solar system
We're space truckin' round the stars
Come on let's go Space Truckin'

The fireball that we rode was moving
But now we've got a new machine
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said
Man those cats can really swing
They got music in their solar system
They've rocked around the Milky Way
They dance around the Borealice
They're Space Truckin' everyday
Come on
