Lyrics


1. SPACESHIP SUPERSTAR

Every night is a different flight to a different galaxy
Do a sold-out show, then I hit the road in my starship limousine

Get so damned tired and uninspired doin' all these one night stands
It's a giant leap for Rock'n'Roll...but it's too much for just one man

I'm a Spaceship Superstar... gotta solar-powered laser beam guitar
I'm at the top of all the charts on Mars...I'm a Spaceship Superstar!

On Mercury, they're crazy about my stellar rock'n'roll
And I always sell out in advance at the Martian Astrobowl

The fans, they swarm like meteorites to our concerts on the moon
You should have seen us knock'em dead on Venus doin' all our favorite tunes

I'm a Spaceship Superstar...gotta solar-powered laser beam guitar
I'm at the top of all the charts on Mars...I'm a Spaceship Superstar!




2. OPEN SOUL SURGERY

It's been a long time since I've been scramblin' down
On the wrong side of your love
And I don't care if you say I'm wasting my time
Cause you're the only one I'm thinking of

Since I spent my whole life ramblin'
Round from town to town
And I need Open Soul Surgery

When you were eighteen I took you from your mother and sister
Cause you didn't need that kind of protection
And now I hate seein' you comin on like some kinda bitch
Just cause your life ain't what you were expectin'

Since I spent my whole life ramblin
Round from town to town
And I need Open Soul Surgery




3. IT'S OVER

What you gonna do when I'm gone?
Who you gonna turn to when you just can't carry on?
Who you gonna run to when it's over?

Maybe you'll believe me when I'm gone
Maybe if I leave you'll realize where we went wrong
You shouldn't be surprised to know
It's Over
It's Over
It's Over

(solo)

Maybe in a day you'll change your mind
Maybe if I stay we'll work it out if there's still time
Cause baby if I leave you now
It's Over
It's Over
It's Over




4. TAKE ME TO THE KAPTIN

The planet dies and no one cries
So hard to believe
If there was somewhere else to go
You know I'd be the first to leave

I don't mean to sound ungrateful
But I'm afraid that I just can't stay

I had a dream the other night
And as the dream unfurled
I took a trip in a rocket ship
And I found another world

They told me about their Kaptin
Then I asked him "Could I stay?"

I said: Take me to the Kaptin and tell him why I'm here
I want to stay in your world while my world disappears

Won't you take me to the Kaptin and tell him why I'm here
I want to stay in your world while my world disappears

[repeat from verse 2]




5. VLADIVOSTOK

Pulled into Vladivostok
Must have been a hundred degrees below
And I can't remember ever being that cold
Then they shackled us like criminals
And put us on a train
And we waited in the darkness and the snow

We awakened in the morning
As the train began to roll
And the freezing Russian winter
Had already claimed a soul
From mountains ever northward
Seemed like six or seven days
Till we finally found the place we were to go

Hey Hey Vladivostok...What's it gonna be?
I'm so lonely, you're the only place thats left for me
Hey Hey Vladivostok, you got me on my knees
It's been so long since I went wrong
Someone help me, won't you please

I wish that I could see you
Hold you near just one more time
And hear you say the things you used to do
Well, lo and behold, I see before my eyes
A vision...apparition of you

You know I'd go a thousand miles
And I'd walk most all the way
Just to see you smile the way you do
...the way you do




6. AMELIA

Heard from a friend you were leaving
But I'll only believe it from you
How could you possibly do this to me
After all the things we've been through
I'm trying to keep it together
But I'm getting so dazed and confused
One day you say you don't need me baby
And the next day you tell me you do
Ahhh what can I do

Amelia can't feel ya
You're slipping away
Can't go on without you
I'm going insane

The rumor is out I've gone crazy
But I'm tired of hearing those lies
I've been trying for days just to find you baby
'Cause there's something I just realised

Amelia can't feel ya
You're slipping away
Can't go on without you
I'm going insane

Repeat




7. FREEWILL

Leaders, preachers they try to discipline my soul
Parents, teachers they're making sure I do as I'm told
Everybody's saying what I can and cannot
My life is my own, the one thing I got

Freewill
Mine to decide
Freewill
The choices are mine
Freewill
I do what I want and I feel alright

Naughty, nasty you know you shouldn't do that
Hold on, slow down you're tryin' to tell me where it's at
It's all up to you no one else is to blame
You make your own odds and you're ahead of the game

Freewill
My turn to decide
Freewill
The choices are mine
Freewill
I do what I want and I feel alright




8. JULIE

Julie it would be so nice
If you'd just tell me what's going on
Two weeks since I've seen you
and I'd really and truly like to know

You put me through this more once or twice
Cause I thought I was the only one
Julie do you think it's about time
For me to go

I can see by the look that's in your eyes
You're surprised when I say the things I do
Is it true that you think
I'm telling lies I can see

Julie would it be so hard
Just to be the way we used to be
I'm feelin' stranded
And it's getting so hard for me to see

Oh, you left me standing
With my heart on my sleeve
And I just can't hide the way I feel
Julie do you think it's about time for me to leave

I can see by the look that's in your eyes
You're surprised when I say the things I do
Is it true that you think
I'm telling lies I can see
[Repeat 2 times]




9. I AIN'T LOOKIN' ANYMORE

I was a sucker for the hard stuff
...bashed my head against the wall
Now I'm a junkie for your good love
...feel like the King of Rock n' Roll

[Chorus]
I ain't looking anymore
I ain't looking anymore
I ain't looking anymore
'cause I found what I've been looking for...

Maybe we should live together
...a story written in the stars
I hope you believe me when I tell you (baby)
...I love you more than my guitar

[Chorus]

I ain't looking anymore
I ain't looking anymore
I ain't looking anymore
since I found what I've been looking for...
