Lyrics


1. SEE FOREVER EYES

Looking right through you she knows who you are she's got see forever eyes
A spirit obsessed, a vision possessed with universal inner sight
No stranger to love she's had many men but none of them survived
Her crystal excites so follow the light of her see forever eyes

[Chorus]
See Forever Eyes
See Forever Eyes

Beholding the mirror her eyes give a feeling of lonely vacant skies
Soaring above always searching for love the soul within her flies
Caught by a glance, in a gossamer trance, woven by her lies
Compelling them nearer, dispelling their fear with her see forever eyes

(Solo)

[Chorus]




2. 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)




3. 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




4. 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




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. YOU'RE LIKE THE WIND

You're like the wind...you're always changing
Sometimes we're friends, sometimes we're strangers
All I ever wanted from you...
was just to hear you say you love me too
But you won't see me
You won't see me

You're like the sun..... I can't get near you
Just like a song, but I can't hear you
All I'm really trying to say...
is that I seem to need you more each day
But you won't see me
No, you won't see me

(Solo)

You're like the wind...you're always changing
Sometimes we're friends, sometimes we're strangers
All I'm really trying to say...
is that I seem to need you more each day
But you won't see me
You won't see me




7. FLYIN'

You're on the inside
I'm on the outside
Baby, there's no right side to this game

You had me floatin'
How could I be knowin'
That our love was only a one act play

Flyin'
you should be flyin' home
Flyin'
now you'll be flyin'home

Now that you're leavin'
I just can't believe it
I should have seen it a long time ago

The time I was losing
love can be so confusing
Now I'll put you back on that morning plane

Flyin'
now you're flyin' home
Flyin'
you'll be flyin' home

Get on your way...
Get on your way up to the sky
A brand new day...
it's a brand new day and I'm flyin'!

Flyin'
you'll be flyin' home
Flyin'
it's time you're flyin' home
Flyin'
you'll be flyin' home
Flyin'
I'll see you flyin' home

Flyin' home...

(repeat and fade)




8. NICKELS AND DIMES

Have mercy on a poor boy's soul
And please don't be too unkind
I live my life on the edge of a knife
Now I'm leavin' it all behind

[Chorus]
Oh, We blew those nickels and dimes
Oh, We blew those nickels and dimes

I got me a three-piece suit
Set out on the make
Now I serenade those rich old maids
Like a sweet-talkin', two legged snake

[Chorus]

I turned on my boyscout smile
I stood up and gave her my seat
Winked my eye and unzipped my fly
And later we went up to her penthouse suite

(Solo)

Every eye in the casino
Is on the woman at the roulette wheel
She was thirty-eight, a little over weight
In her purse lay her charm and appeal

[Chorus] (x2)

(Outro)




9. 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!




10. N-N-N-NO!

I met a little lady at the Hollywood Bowl
She said she'd like to see me maybe after the show
She wanted to come
And I gotta go
But I've always had trouble sayin' N-N-N-No!
...it's never been easy!

Back at the Holiday Inn, the boys were havin' a smoke
I 'member someone askin' if I wanted a toke
I should have declined
I get so outta control
But I've always had trouble sayin' N-N-N-No!
...Look Out!

(Solo)

I met a little honey from the C.I.A.
She said "I'll give you money if you do what I say"
Tryin' to make up my mind
Hate to think I've been sold
But I've always had trouble...
Yeah I've always had trouble...
You know I've always had trouble sayin' N-N-N-No!
