Love and Death and the American Guitar

Strat I remember everything! I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday! I was barely seventeen and I once killed a boy with a Fender guitar. I don’t remember if it was a Telecaster or a Stratocaster, but I do remember that it had a heart of chrome and a voice like a horny angel!
I don’t remember if it was a Telecaster or a Stratocaster but I do remember that it wasn’t at all easy. It required the perfect combination of the right power chords and the precise angle from which to strike. The guitar bled for about a week afterward and the blood was, oooh, dark and rich, like wild berries. The blood of the guitar was Chuck Berry red. The guitar bled for about a week afterward but it rung out beautifully and I was able to play notes that I had never even heard before. So I took my guitar and I smashed it against the wall. I smashed it against the floor. I smashed it against the body of a varsity cheerleader. Smashed it against the hood of a car. Smashed it against the 1981 Harley Davidson. The Harley howled in pain. The guitar howled in heat! And I ran up the stairs to my parents’ bedroom. Mummy and Daddy were sleeping in the moonlight. Slowly I turned, step by step, I opened the door, creeping in the shadows right up to the foot of their bed. I raised the guitar high above my head, and just as I was about to bring the guitar crashing down upon the center of the bed, my father woke up screaming: “Stop! Wait a minute! Stop it boy! What do you think you’re doing? That’s no way to treat an expensive musical instrument!” And I said: “Goddamnit, Daddy! You know I love you. But you got a hell of a lot to learn about rock and roll!!!”

All Revved Up With No Place To Go

Strat & The Lost I was nothing but a hungry boy
Looking for something new
And it was nothing but an endless dream
But it was something
Something like a dream come true

I was out on the prowl
Down by the edge of the track
And like a son of a Jackal
I’ve been running with the pack now

Every day, every night
I feel the fever grow
Do ya know what it’s like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it’s like?
All revved up with no place to go

Let the revvels begin
Let the cages be opened
Let the flags all be unfurled
I’m just a blue-eyed, blonde-haired black-hearted boy
Killing time until the end of the world

What’s the meaning of life?
What’s the meaning of it all?
You gotta dance learn to dance
Before you learn to crawl
You gotta dance learn to dance
Before you learn to crawl

Every day, every night
I feel the fever grow
Do ya know what it’s like?
All revved up with no place to go
Do ya know what it’s like?
All revved up with no place to go

Dance Battle/Ballet

The Lost Wasted youth!
Wasted youth!
Wasted youth! Aah!
Wasted youth! Wasted youth!

Falco They got a file on you and it’s a mile long
And they say that they got all of the proof
That you’re just another case of arrested development
And just another wasted youth

They say you’re in need
Of some radical discipline
And you know you gotta face the truth
That you’re just another case of arrested development
And just another wasted youth

Strat They say I’m wild and I’m reckless
Falco You should be acting your age
Strat I’m an impress’nable child
In a tumultuous world
And they say
Falco You’re at a difficult stage!

Strat But it seems to me
To the contrary
Of all the crap
They’re going to put on the page

That a wasted youth is
Better by far than a
Wise and productive old age!

A wasted youth is
Better by far than a
Wise and productive old age!

The Lost A wasted youth is
Better by far than a
Wise and productive old age!

A wasted youth is
Better by far than a
Wise and productive old age!

Strat I was nothing but a desperate all-American boy
Looking out for something to do
Jagwire And it was nothing but an endless all-American dream
But it were something like a dream come true

Ledoux I was out on the prowl
Down by the edge of the track
And like a son of a Jackal
I’ve been running with the pack

The Lost But every day and every night
I feel the fever grow
All revved up with no place to go!
All revved up with no place to go!
All revved up with no place to go!
All revved up with no place to go!
All revved up with no place to go! …

Who Needs the Young

Falco Who needs the young?
The revelation of their faces and their hair
When all we have are withered traces of the faces we once were
Sloane Hey!
Falco And suffocation in the dirty, fatal air
Who needs the young bodies floating in the sun?

Who needs the young?
The celebration of the races that they’ve have won
The sado-masochistic things they’ve never done
Sloane Disgusting!
Falco And all the places that we never will have gone
Falco & Sloane Who needs the young bodies floating in the sun?
Falco Who needs the young?

Sloane My eyes just aren’t what they were
Falco My eyes just aren’t what they were
Falco & Sloane My eyes just aren’t what they were
Falco Is there anyone left who can see? Blind him!

Sloane My lips just aren’t what they were
Falco My lips just aren’t what they were
Falco & Sloane My lips just aren’t what they were
Falco Is there anyone left who can kiss? Spit on him!

Sloane My mind just isn’t what it was
Falco My mind just isn’t what it was
Falco & Sloane My mind just isn’t what it was
Falco Is there anyone left who can dream? Wake him!

Sloane My legs just aren’t what they were
Falco My legs just aren’t what they were
Falco & Sloane My legs just aren’t what they were
Sloane Is there anyone left who can dance? Cripple him!

Sloane My voice just isn’t what it was
Falco My voice just isn’t what it was
Falco & Sloane My voice just isn’t what it was
Sloane Is there anyone left who can sing? Silence him!

Sloane My sex just isn’t what is was
Falco My sex just isn’t what is was
Falco & Sloane My sex just isn’t what is was
Is there anyone left who can fuck? Fuck him!

Falco Who needs the young?
The perfect star of flesh that that’s free from questions why
Who needs the whispered moaning passed from thigh to thigh
Sloane Who needs to see them do the things we’ll never try
Falco Who needs the young when we’re spending
Falco & Sloane All the rest of our wonderful lives learning to die! …

It Just Won’t Quit

Raven And I never really sleep anymore
And I always get those dangerous dreams
And I never get a minute of peace
And I gotta wonder what it means
And I gotta wonder what it means

Maybe it’s nothing and I’m under the weather
Maybe it’s just one of those bugs going round
Maybe I’m under a spell and its magic?
Maybe there’s a witch doctor with an office in town

Raven & Ensemble Oh, is this a blessing?
Or is it a curse?
Does it get any better?
Can it get any worse?
Will it go on forever?
Or is it over tonight?
Does it come with the darkness?
Does it bring out the light?

Raven Is it richer than diamonds?
Or just a little cheaper than spit?

EnsembleI don’t know what it is

Raven I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit

Strat And there used to be such an easy way of living
And there used to be every hope in the world
And I used to get everything that I went after
But there never used to be this girl
No, there never used to be this girl

Maybe I’m crazy and I’m losing my senses
Maybe I’m possessed by a spirit or such
Maybe I’m desperate and I got no defences
Can you get me a prescription for that one perfect touch?

Strat, Raven & Ensemble Oh, is this a blessing?
Or is it a curse?
Does it get any better?
Can it get any worse?
Will it go on forever?
Or is it over tonight?
Does it come with the darkness?
Does it bring out the light?

Raven Is it a stairway to heaven
Or a subway going down to the pits

EnsembleIs it some kind of love?

Strat I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
Raven & Ensemble I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
Strat, Raven & Ensemble I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit
I don’t know what it is, but it just won’t quit

Strat There was a time when nothing really mattered
Raven There was a time when there was nothing I didn’t know
Strat There was a time when I knew just what I was living for
Strat & Raven There was a time and the time was long ago
There was a time and the time was so long ago

Tink And I never really sleep anymore …

Out of the Frying Pan (And into the Fire)

Strat It’s jugular, Tink! It’s not skin, not bones, not veins! It’s jugular! I have to see her. EVERY nerve in my body is on fire! Every muscle is in revolt! TONIGHT! I’m gonna get her tonight!
Tink OK — breathe a little — just breathe —
Strat Maybe we should kidnap her?
Tink Kidnap a girl?
Strat I dunno, why not? — We’ll ask for ransom?
Ledoux Ransom would be SWEET.
Tink What’s “ransom?”
Blake It’s what you ask for when you take something that doesn’t belong to you.
Strat She’s so pure and so beautiful! And I want her so bad and she’s so good.

Strat It’s only two o’clock and the temperature’s beginning to soar
And all around the city you see the walking wounded and the living dead
It’s never been this hot and I’ve never been so bored
And breathing is just no fun anymore
And then I saw you like a summer dream
And you’re the answer to every prayer that I ever said
Strat, Ledoux & Blake Then I saw you like a summer dream
And you’re the answer to every prayer that I ever said

Ledoux You can feel the pulse of the pavement racing like a runaway horse
Blake The subways are sizzling and the skin of the street is gleaming with sweat
Ledoux I see you sitting on the steps outside
And you were looking so restless and reckless and lost

Blake I think it’s time for you to come inside
And I’ll be waiting here with something that you’ll never forget
Blake, Ledoux & The Lost I think it’s time for you to come inside
I’ll be waiting here with something that you’ll never forget

Strat Hey, come on! Come on!

Ledoux, Blake & The Lost Come on! Come on! And there’ll be no turning back
You are only killing time and it can kill you right back
Come on! Come on! It’s time to burn up the fuse
You got nothing to do and even less to lose
You got nothing to do and even less to lose

Strat Guys, I’m beggin on my knees. I never do this…

Blake & Ledoux So wander down the ancient hallway
Taking the stairs only one at the time
Follow the sound of her heartbeat now
She’s in the room at the top, you’re at the end of the line
So open the door, lay down on the bed
The sun is just a ball of desire

And I wanna take you out of the frying pan
The Lost And into the fire!
Blake, Ledoux & Strat Out of the frying pan
Strat Are you crazy?
The Lost And into the fire!
Blake, Ledoux & Strat Out of the frying pan
Ledoux, Blake, Strat & The Lost And into the fire! …

C’mon! Hey!
Hey!
Let’s do this!
Hurry up!
C’mon!
Hey! Let’s do it!

Blake & Ledoux So wander down the ancient hallway
Taking the stairs only one at the time
Follow the sound of her heartbeat now
She’s in the room at the top, you’re at the end of the line
So open the door, lay down on the bed
The sun is just a ball of desire

And I wanna take you out of the frying pan
The Lost And into the fire!
Blake, Ledoux & Strat Out of the frying pan
The Lost And into the fire!
Blake, Ledoux & Strat Out of the frying pan
Ledoux, Blake, Strat & The Lost And into the fire!
And into the
And into the
And into the fire! fire! fire!
And into the fire! fire! fire!
And into the fire! fire! fire!
And into the fire! …

Strat Raven! …

Good Girls Go To Heaven (Bad Girls Go Everywhere)

Zahara When the wind is howling through your windowpane
It’s not the only pain of the night
You’re burning up in your bed, you got a fever of love
And there’s not an anti-body in sight

Sloane Hey Raven, Raven why are you crying?
There is a beauty of a moon in the sky
But I guess when you’ve been leading such a sheltered life
You never lift your head and look so high

Sloane & Zahara You don’t have a lot
The Lost Lot!
Sloane & Zahara But it’s all that you got
And you can turn it into more than it seems
Just give it a shot!
The Lost Shot!
Sloane & Zahara Fantasize every movement
And imagine every inch of you dream

Sloane No one said it had to be real
Raven But it’s gotta be something
You can reach out and feel now
Sloane It ain’t right
Raven It ain’t fair!
Sloane, Raven & Zahara Castles fall in the sand
And we fade in the air
And the good girls go to heaven
Zahara But the bad girls go everywhere
Sloane & Raven Oh, now good girls go to heaven
Zahara But the bad girls go everywhere

Sloane, Raven & Zahara Somebody told me so
Somebody told me
Now I know every night in my prayer
Raven I’ll be praying that the
Good girls go to heaven
Sloane & Zahara But the bad girls go everywhere

Zahara When the sweat is sizzling on your skin in the dark
And you’re desperate now for somewhere to turn
Every muscle in rebellion, every nerve is on edge
And every limb has been erotically burned

Sloane Hey Raven, Raven why are you shaking
When a girl should do whatever she can?
You’ve been nothing but an angel every day of your life
And now you wonder what it’s like to be damned

Sloane & Zahara You don’t have a lot
The Lost Lot!
Sloane & Zahara But it’s all that you got
And you can turn it into more than it seems
Just give it a shot!
The Lost Shot!
Sloane & Zahara Fantasize every movement
And imagine every inch of you dream

Raven No one said it had to be real
Zahara But it’s gotta be something
You’ve been wanting to feel now
Sloane It ain’t right
Raven & Zahara It ain’t fair!
Sloane, Raven & Zahara Castles fall in the sand
And we fade in the air
And the good girls go to heaven
Zahara But the bad girls go everywhere
Sloane, Raven & Zahara Oh, now good girls go to heaven
Raven But the bad girls go everywhere

Sloane, Raven & Zahara Somebody told me so
Somebody told me
Now I know every night in my prayer
I’ll be praying that the
Good girls go to heaven
But the bad girls go everywhere …

Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

Zahara Baby, we can talk all night
But that ain’t getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There’s nothing left inside of here

And maybe you can cry all night
But that’ll never change the way that I feel
Jagwire The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn’t make leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I’m tired of words and I’m too hoarse to shout
But you’ve been cold to me so long
I’m crying icicles instead of tears

Zahara And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you
Ensemble I want you
Zahara I need you
Ensemble I need you
Zahara But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
Ensemble Don’t be sad
Zahara & Ensemble Cos two out of three ain’t bad
Now don’t be sad
Coz two out of three ain’t bad

Zahara, Jagwire & Ensemble You’ll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You’ll never drill for oil on a city street
Jagwire I know you are looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
Zahara But there ain’t no Coupe-de-Ville
Hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box

I can’t lie
Ensemble I can’t lie
Zahara I can’t tell you that I’m something I’m not
Now matter how I try
I’ll never be able
To give you something, something that I just haven’t got

Well there’s only one boy that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I’ll never get him out of my heart
He never loved me back
Jagwire Ooh I know

Zahara Well, I remember how he left me on a stormy night
Oh, he kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged him not to walk out that door
He packed his bags and turned right away

And he kept on telling me
He kept on telling me
He kept on telling me

I want you
Jagwire & Ensemble I want you
Zahara I need you
Jagwire & Ensemble I need you
Zahara But there ain’t no way I’m ever gonna love you
Now don’t be sad
Ensemble Don’t be sad
Jagwire Cos two out of three ain’t bad
Zahara Now don’t be sad
Zahara & Jagwire Coz two out of three ain’t bad

Zahara Baby, we can talk all night
Zahara & Ensemble But that ain’t getting us nowhere …

Paradise by the Dashboard Light

Falco Well, I remember ev’ry little thing as if it happened only yesterday
Sloane You think you do but you don’t –
Falco Parking by the lake and there was not another car in sight
Sloane There’s only one parking spot by the lake
Falco And I’ve never had a girl looking any better than you did
Sloane Well, that’s true —
Falco And all the kids at school they were wishing they were me that night

Falco & Sloane And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
Falco And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Sloane Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Falco C’mon! Hold on tight!
Oh c’mon! Hold on tight!

Falco, Sloane & Servants Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Sloane Ain’t no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed
Coz we were barely seventeen and we were barely dressed
Falco, Sloane & Servants Well, ain’t no doubt about it
Baby got to go on and shout it
Ain’t no doubt about it—we were doubly blessed

Falco Baby don’t-cha hear my heart, you got it drowning out the radio
I’ve been waiting so long for you to come along and have some fun
Well, I got to let ya know, no you’re never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes: I got a big surprise, it’ll feel all right—
Well I wanna let your motor run

Sloane & Servants And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Falco C’mon! Hold on tight!
Sloane Well c’mon! Hold on tight!

Sloane & Servants Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Falco Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
Ensemble Cold in the deep dark night
Falco & Sloane Paradise by the
Falco, Sloane & Servants Dashboard light

You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Well ain’t no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed
Coz we were barely seventeen and we were barely —

Falco We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way tonight’s the night
Falco & Servants We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way tonight’s the night
We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way tonight’s the night
We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way and tonight’s the night …

Baseball Radio AnnouncerWell, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here. Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth. There’s the wind-up and there it is, a line shot at the middle — and look at him go! This boy can really fly! He’s rounding first and really turning it on now. He’s not letting up at all, he’s gonna try for second! The ball is bobbled out to center and here comes the throw, oh, and what a throw! He’s gonna slide in head first. Here he comes, and he’s out! No, wait, safe! Safe at second base! This kid really makes things happen out there! Batter steps up to the plate, here’s the pitch, and he’s going, and what a jump. He’s trying for third. There’s the throw, it’s in the dirt! Holy cow, he’s going to make it! The pitcher glances over, winds up, and it’s bunted, bunted down the third base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze play, it’s gonna be close! Here’s the throw, here’s the play at the plate! Holy Cow! I think he’s gonna make it!

Sloane Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!

Before we go any further do you love me?
Will you love me forever? Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away?
And will you make me your wife? Do you love me!?
Will you love me forever? Do you need me!?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further
Do you love me?
Will you love me for ever?

Falco Let me sleep on it, baby baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it, I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Falco & Servants Let me sleep on it, baby baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it, I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it, baby baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it, I’ll give you an answer in the morning

Sloane I gotta know right now!
Falco Let me sleep on it
Sloane Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Falco Baby baby, let me sleep on it
Sloane Do you need me!?
Will you never leave me?
Falco Let me sleep on it
Sloane Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Falco I’ll give you an answer in the morning, morning — I’ll tell you in the morning
Sloane Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
I’ve got to know right now!
Before we go any further
Do you love me?
Will you love me for ever?

Well, boy, what is it gonna be?
Yes or no?
What is it gonna be boy?
YES or NO?!?

Falco Let me sleep on it!
Sloane Will you love me forever?
Falco Let me sleep on it!
Sloane Will you love me forever?

Falco I couldn’t take it any longer, Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came across me like a tidal wave
Started swearing to my God and on my mother’s grave
That I would love you to the end of time!
I swore I would love you to the end of time!

Falco, Sloane & Servants So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
Coz if I got to spend another minute with you
I don’t think I can really survive
Falco I’ll never break my promise or forget vow
Sloane But God only knows what I can do right now

Falco, Sloane & Servants I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time
So I can end my time with you!

Falco Well it was long ago and it was far away
So much better than it is today …
Long ago and it was far away
So much better than it is today …
Long ago and it was far away
So much better than it is today …

Sloane It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife …
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife …

Making Love Out of Nothing at All

Strat I know just how to whisper
And I know just how to cry
Raven I know just where to find the answers
And I know just how to lie

Strat I know just how to fake it
And I know just how to scheme
Raven I know just when to face the truth
And then I know just when to dream

Strat And I know just where to touch you
And I know just what to prove
I know just when to pull you closer
Raven And I know when to let you loose

Strat And I know the night is fading
And I know the time’s gonna fly
And I’m never gonna tell you everything I gotta tell you
But I know I gotta give it a try

But I don’t know how to leave you
Raven And I’ll never let you fall
Strat And I don’t know how you do it
Making love out of nothing at all

Raven Every time I see you all the rays of the sun are
Streaming through the waves in your hair
And every star in the sky is taking aim at
Your eyes like a spotlight

Strat The beating of my heart is a drum, and it’s lost
And it’s looking for a rhythm like you

Raven You can take the darkness from the pit of the night
And turn it to a beacon burning endlessly bright

Raven & Strat I gotta follow it ‘cause everything I know
Well it’s nothing till I give it to you

Strat Making love
Raven Out of nothing at all

Strat Making love
Raven Out of nothing at all

Strat Making love
Raven & Strat Out of nothing at all

Bat Out of Hell

Strat The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There is evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
Oh, and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heath

Raven Wait, I have to go back! I don’t think I can do this. I have to.

Strat Oh baby, you’re the only thing in this whole world
That’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out, I got break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know we’d both be so alone

Strat & Ensemble Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
Oh when the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

Strat When the day is done and the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you

I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
On a silver black Phantom bike
When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
And we’re all about to see the light
Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole
And everything is stunted and lost
Strat & Ensemble And nothing really rocks and nothing really rolls
And nothing’s ever worth the cost

Strat Oh, I know that I’m damned if I never get out
And maybe I’m damned if I do
But with every other beat I got left in my heart
You know I’d rather be damned with you
But if I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night with you
Strat & Raven Well, if I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Strat, Raven & Ensemble Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night
Dancing through the night with you …

Strat & Ensemble Oh baby, you’re the only thing in this whole world
That’s pure and good and right
Raven & Ensemble And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light

Strat & Ensemble But I gotta get out, I got break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
Strat, Raven & Ensemble So we gotta make the most of our one night together
Coz when it’s over you know we’d both be so alone

Strat, Raven & Ensemble Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
And when the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

Strat & Ensemble When the day is done and the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you

Raven Stop! I can’t leave things like this. I just can’t. I don’t think I’m ready for this. And Dad’ll never stop until he finds you. He’ll kill you.

Strat Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I’ll come crawling on back to you …

Well, I can see myself tearing up the road
Strat & Ensemble Faster then any other boy has ever gone
Strat Oh when my skin is raw but my soul is ripe
Strat & Ensemble And no-one is gonna stop me now—I’m gonna make my escape
Strat But I can’t stop thinking of you
And I never see the sudden curve ‘til it’t way too late

Ensemble Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh

Strat I never see a sudden curve
‘Til it’s way too late

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart… still beating

I’m breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of hell

Strat & Ensemble Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
Strat And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
Strat & Ensemble And the last thing I see is my heart…
Strat Still beating…
Still beating…

Oh, breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of hell
Oh, like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell
Like a bat out of hell—
Ensemble Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
Strat Like a bat out of hell—
Ensemble Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
Strat Oh, like a bat out of hell …

In the Land of the Pig the Butcher is King

Falco Look at them now!
What do they want and what do they do now?
Nothing at all!
They all live on so aimlessly
But what do they know?
What do they think and who do they tell?
Well, no one at all!

Their lives are purely meaningless
While we are busy being blessed
With all that we can take and pocket
No one needs to know
We’re the plug and they’re the socket
Give us the juice and we’ll glow!

Falco & Guards Can’t you hear the choir now?
Listen to the animals sing!
Can’t you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!

Can’t you hear the choir now?
Listen to the marketplace sing!
Can’t you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!
Guards In the land of the pig the butcher is king!

Falco
How do they sleep?
Their lives are all so tawdry
And they’re nothin’ but trash
And we’re the biggest trash collector
What d’you expect?
They’ve got no standards, perfect for us!
We lower the bar!

And we’ll open up Pandora’s Box
Pandora gave us keys and locks
Falco & Guards And they’re the victims waiting for their mugger
Come to the confessional
Falco So I can tell you all to bugger off!
No time like now!

Falco & Guards Can’t you hear the choir now?
Listen to the abbatoirs sing!
Can’t you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!

Can’t you hear the choir now?
Listen to the chosen one sing!
Can’t you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pig the butcher is king!
In the land of the pig the butcher is king! …

Heaven Can Wait

Raven Heaven can wait
And a band of angels wrapped up in my heart
Will take me through the lonely night
Through the cold of the day

And I know, I know
Heaven can wait
And all the gods come down here just to sing for me
And the melody’s gonna make me fly
Without pain, without fear

Give me all of your dreams and
Let me go along on your way
Give me all of your prayers to sing and I’ll
Turn the night into the skylight of day

I got a taste of paradise
I’m never gonna let it slip away
I got a taste of paradise
That’s all I really need to make me stay
Just like a child again

Heaven can wait
And all I got it’s time until the end of time
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine …

And I know that I been released but I
Don’t know to where
Nobody’s gonna tell me now and I
Don’t really care

No, no, no — I got a taste of paradise
That’s all I really need to make me stay
I got a taste of paradise
If I had it any sooner you know —
You know I never would have run away —
From my home

Heaven can wait
And all I got it’s time until the end of time
I won’t look back
I won’t look back
Let the altars shine
Let the altars shine …

Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are

Jagwire The skies were pure and the fields were green
The sun was brighter than it’s ever been
When I grew up with my best friend Kenny
We were close as any brothers that you ever knew

It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all
There was so much left to dream
And so much time to make it real

But I can still recall the sting of all
The tears when he was gone
They said he crashed and burned
I know I’ll never learn why any boy should die so young!

We were racing, we were soldiers of fortune
We got in trouble but we sure got around
There are times I think I see him peeling out of the dark
I think he’s right behind me now
And he’s gaining ground!

But I was long ago and it was far away
Oh God it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway
Then the soul is just a car

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Jagwire & The Lost And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are …

Blake And when the sun descended and the nights arose
I heard my father cursing everyone he knows
He was dangerous and drunk and defeated
And corroded by failure and envy and hate

There were endless winters and the dreams would freeze
No were to hide and no leaves on the trees
And my father’s eyes were blank
As he hit me again and again and again

I know I still believe he’d never let me leave
I had to run away alone
So many threats and fears, so many wasted years
Before my life became my own

And through the nightmares should be over
Some of the terrors are still intact
I hear that ugly coarse and violent voice
And then he grabs me from behind
And then he pulls me back!

But I was long ago and it was far away
Oh God it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway
Then the soul is just a car

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Blake & The Lost And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are …

Ledoux There was a beauty living on the edge of town
And she always put the top up and the hammer down
And she taught me every thing I’ll ever know
About the mystery and the muscle of love

The stars would glimmer and the moon would glow
I’m in the back seat with my Julie like a Romeo
And the signs along the highway all said
“Caution! Kids At Play!”

Those were the rights of spring and we did everything
There was salvation every night
We got our dreams reborn and our upholstery torn
But everything we tried was right!

She used her body just like a bandage
She used my body just like a wound
I’ll probably never know where she disappeared
But I can she her rising up out of the back seat now
Just like an angel rising up from a tomb

But I was long ago and it was far away
Oh God it seems so very far
And if life is just a highway
Then the soul is just a car

And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are
Jagwire, Blake & Ledoux And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are …

For Crying Out Loud

Strat I was lost till you were found
And I never knew how far down
I was falling before I’d reached the bottom
Oh, I was cold and you were fire
And I never knew how the pyre
Could be burning on the edge of the ice field

And now the chilly Californian wind
Is blowing down our bodies again
And we’re sinking deeper and deeper
In the chilly Californian sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And can’t you see my faded Levis bursting apart?

And don’t you hear me crying:
“Oh babe, don’t go!”
And don’t you hear me screaming:
“How was I to know?”

I’m in the middle of nowhere
Near the end of the line
But there is a border to somewhere waiting
And there is a tankful of time
Oh give me just another moment
To see the light of the day
And take me to another land
Where I don’t have to stay
And I’m gonna need somebody
To make me feel like you do
And I’m gonna receive somebody
With open arms, open eyes
Open up the sky
And let the planet that I love shine through

For crying out loud you know I love you
For crying out loud you know I love you
For crying out loud you know I love you

Raven I was dammed and you were saved
And I never knew how enslaved
I was kneeling in the chains of my master
I could laugh but you could cry
And I never knew just how high
I was flying, oh, with you right above me

And now the chilly Californian wind
Is blowing down our bodies again
And we’re sinking deeper and deeper
In the chilly Californian sand
Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
And can’t you see my faded Levis bursting apart?

And don’t you hear me crying:
“Oh babe, don’t go!”
And don’t you hear me screaming:
“How was I to know?”

Strat & Raven I’m in the middle of nowhere
Near the end of the line
But there is a border to somewhere waiting
And there is a tankful of time
Oh give me just another moment
To see the light of the day
And take me to another land
Where I don’t have to stay
Raven And I’m gonna need somebody
To make me feel like you do
Strat And I’m gonna receive somebody with open arms
Raven Open eyes
Open up the sky
Strat & Raven And let the planet that I love shine through

For crying out loud you know I love you
Strat For crying out loud you know I love you
Raven Oh, for crying out loud you know I love you

Strat & Raven When you’re crying out loud
You know I love you …

Raven For coming to my room when you know I’m alone
Strat For finding me a highway, for driving me home
Strat & Raven And you got to know for that I serve you

Raven For pulling me away when I’m stopping to fall
Strat For revving me up when I’m starting to stall
Strat & Raven And all in all for that I want you

Strat For crying out loud
For that I love you
Strat & Raven When you’re crying out loud
You know I love you …

You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)

StratOn a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
RavenWould he offer me his mouth?
StratYes…
RavenWould he offer me his teeth?
StratYes…
RavenWould he offer me his jaws?
StratYes…
RavenWould he offer me his hunger?
StratYes…
RavenAgain, would he offer me his hunger?
StratYes…
RavenAnd would he starve without me?
StratYes
RavenAnd does he love me?
StratYes
RavenYes
StratOn a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?
RavenYes!
StratI bet you say that to all the boys …

Ledoux It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning
There was fog crawlin’ over the sand
Liebeswoosh When I listen to heart I hear the whole world turnin’
I see the shooting stars falling through your trembling hands

Ledoux While you were lickin’ your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
Liebeswoosh Oh, we were lying together on a silver lining
By the light of the moon
Ledoux, Liebeswoosh & The Lost You know there’s not another moment
Not another moment
Not another moment to waste

Blake When you hold me so close that my knees grow weak
But my soul is flyin’ high above the ground
Mordema I’m tryin’ to speak but no matter what I do
Mordema & The Lost I just can’t seem to make any sound

The Lost And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh it must have been when you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it’s true I was just about to say I love you
Love you

Strat, Raven & The Lost And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been when you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
Strat & Raven And I swear it’s true I was just about to say I love you
The Lost Love you

Jagwire Now my body is shaking like a wave on the water
And I guess that I’m beginning to grin
Oh, we’re finally alone and we can do what we want to
Oh, the night is young
Jagwire & The Lost And no one’s gonna know where
No one’s gonna know where
No one’s gonna know where you’ve been

Strat & The Lost You were licking your lips and your lipstick shining
I was dying just to ask for a taste
We were lying together in a silver lining
By the light of the moon you know there’s not another moment to waste

Raven And then you took the words right out of my mouth
Oh, it must have been when you were kissing me
You took the words right out of my mouth
And I swear it’s true I was just about to say I love you
The Lost Love you

Strat, Raven & The Lost And then you took the words right out of my mouth

Not Allowed to Love

Tink I’m not allowed to love, not allowed to fall
It seems that after all some rules must be unbroken
I’m not allowed to swoon, romanticize or croon
The beauty of your eyes must still remain unspoken

But my head will be unbowed
I’m certainly no fool
I’m no fool, for I know
I’ll always be allowed
To find exceptions to the rules

I’m not allowed to love, after all these years
There’s just so little time – I can afford to be wrong
I’m not allowed to cry, tremble, whimper, sigh
These signs of weakness are avoided, I must be strong

And my head will unbowed
I’m certainly no fool
I’m no fool, for I know
I’ll always be allowed
To find exceptions to the rules

Say that you will
I’ll hang on every word
I’ll hang on every letter
But nothing’s gonna change the truth,
My love is better
Nothing’s gonna change the truth,
My love is better …

What Part of My Body Hurts the Most

Falco What part of my body hurts the most?
What part of my soul is crying — for crying out loud?
What part of my heart is beating
Faster than the speed of love?
Is this the way that it’s supposed to be?
What part of my body hurts the most?
Come a little bit closer
Oh, come here now, let’s see

What part of my body hurts the most?
What part of my soul is crying — for crying out loud?
For crying out loud
What part of my heart is beating
Faster than the speed of love?
Is this the way that it’s supposed to be?
Falco & Sloane What part of my body hurts the most?
Falco Come a little bit closer
Falco & Sloane Oh, come here now, and let’s see

Falco There times in the still of the night
When I don’t think I’ll get over you
But I got no choice
Falco & Sloane I must
There are times when I need a new light
When the darkness has dissolved and I can see
But only just

Sloane You’ll always be here with me
You’re a ghost and I’ve been cursed
But if you were excorcised
It would only make it worse
Falco & Sloane A demon or angel
It doesn’t matter all that much
I toss and I turn every night
And I try to feel your touch
And I can’t stop wondering
I can’t stop wondering

What part of my body hurts the most?
What part of my soul is crying — for crying out loud?
For crying out loud
What part of my heart is beating
Faster than the speed of love?
Is this the way that it’s supposed to be?
What part of my body hurts the most?
Come a little bit closer
Oh, come here now, and let’s see

Sloane Is it my arms?
Falco Always reaching out, but you’re never there
Sloane Is it my legs?
Falco Running after your image as it soon disappears
Sloane Is it my lips?
Falco I can trace all the kisses that I missed in the night
Sloane Is it my eyes?
Falco & Sloane I can still see a vision of you but it’s out of my sight
You’re always out of my sight
And I’ll never get away from …
Never get away from it

What part of my body hurts the most?
What part of my soul is crying — for crying out loud?
For crying out loud
What part of my heart is beating
Faster than the speed of love?
Is this the way that it’s supposed to be?
What part of my body hurts the most?
Come a little bit closer
Oh, come here now, let’s see

Falco For crying out loud
Come a little bit closer
Oh, come here now
Let’s see …

The LostDown to the bar
Jagwire I got my buddies and a beer, I got a dream—I need a car

Jagwire & The Lost But you’re everything I’m dreaming of
I don’t know who you are
But you’re a real dead ringer for love

Zahara Ever since I can remember you been hangin’ around this joint

Jagwire Oh, you got the kind of legs that do more than walk
Zahara I don’t have to listen to your whimpering talk
Jagwire Listen! You got the kind of eyes that do more than see
Zahara You got a lot of nerve to come on to me
Jagwire Oh! You got the kind of lips that do more than drink
Zahara You got the kind of mind that does less than think

But since I’m feeling kind o’ lonely and my defences are low
Why don’t we give it a shot and get it ready to go
I’m looking for anonymous and fleeting satisfaction
And I want to tell my daddy I’ll be missing in action

Ever since I can remember I’ve been hanging around this joint
The Lost Bah bah doo bee wah wah
Bah bah doo bee wah wah
Zahara My daddy never noticed, now he’ll finally get the point

Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through

Strat The beat is yours forever
Tink The beat is always new
Strat & Tink And when you really need it the most
That’s when …

Jagwire You can’t run away forever
But there’s nothing wrong with getting a good head start
Ledoux You want to shut out the night
You want to shut down the sun
Blake You want to shut away the pieces of a broken heart

The Lost Think of how we’d lay down together
We’d be listening to the radio so loud and so strong
Every golden nugget coming like a gift of the gods
Someone must have blessed us when he gave us those songs

Strat I treasure your love
I never want to lose it
Ledoux You’ve been through the fires of hell
And I know you’ve got the ashes to prove it

Jagwire I treasure your love
I want to show you how to use it
Blake You’ve been through a lot of pain in the dirt
And I know you’ve got the scars to prove it

Zahara Remember everything that I told you
And I’m telling you again that it’s true
Lost Girls You’re never alone ‘cause you can put on the phones
And let the drummer tell your heart what to do

Strat & The Lost Keep on believing
And you’ll discover baby

Strat The beat is yours forever
The Lost The beat is yours forever
Strat The beat is always new
The Lost True
Strat & The Lost And when you really need it the most
That’s when rock and roll dreams come through … for you…

It’s All Coming Back To Me Now

Raven There were nights when the wind was so cold
That my body froze in bed
If I just listened to it right outside the window
There were days when the sun was so cruel
That all the tears turned to dust
And I just knew my eyes were drying up forever

I finished crying in the instant that you left
And I can’t remember where or when or how
And I banished every memory you and I have ever made!

But when you touch me like this
And you hold me like that
I just have to admit
That it’s all coming back to me
When I touch you like this
And I hold you like that
It’s so hard to believe
And it’s all coming back to me
It’s all coming back
It’s all coming back to me now

There were moments of gold
And there were flashes of light
There were things I’d never do again
But then they’d always seemed right
There were nights of sacred pleasure
It was more than any laws allow!
Baby, baby!

If I kiss you like this
And if you whisper like that
It was lost long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
If you want me like this
And if you need me like that
It was dead long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
It’s so hard to resist
And it’s all coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it’s all coming back to me now!

Falco & Sloane But you were history with the slamming of the door
And I made myself so strong again somehow
And I never wasted any of my time on you since then!
Baby baby baby

If I kiss you like this
And if you whisper like that
It was lost long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
If you want me like this
And if you need me like that
It was that long ago
But it’s all coming back to me
It’s so hard to resist
And it’s all coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it’s all coming back to me now!

Falco If you forgive me all this
Sloane I’ll forgive you all that
Strat & Falco We’ll forgive and forget
Raven & Sloane And it’s all coming back to me
Strat When you see me like this
Raven & Sloane When I see you like that
Strat & Falco We see all that we want to see
All coming back to me
Sloane, Falco & Raven The flesh and the fantasies
Sloane, Falco, Strat & Raven All coming back to me
I can barely recall
But it’s all coming back to me …

And if we …

I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)

Strat And I would do anything for love
I’d run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I’ll never lie to you and that’s a fact

But I’ll never forget the way you feel right now, oh no, no way
Oh, I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that

Raven I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Strat I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that …

Strat And some days it don’t come easy
And some days it don’t come hard
Some days it don’t come at all and these are the days that never end

And some nights you’re breathing fire
And some nights you’re carved in ice
Some nights you’re like nothing I’ve ever seen before or will again

Raven And maybe I’m crazy
But it’s crazy and it’s true
I know you can save me
No one else can save me now but you
Strat As long as the planets are turning
Raven As long as the stars are burning
As long as your dreams are coming true
Strat You better believe it!

That I would do anything for love
And I’ll be there until the final act
And I would do anything for love
And I’ll take a vow and seal a pact

Jagwire But I’ll never forgive myself if we don’t go all the way, tonight
Oh, I would do anything for love
Strat Oh, I would do anything for love
Jagwire Oh, I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that

Strat & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Strat, Jagwire & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Ensemble Aah aah aah aah aah aah aah…

Falco And some days I pray for silence
Falco & Sloane And some days I pray for soul
Zahara Some days I just pray to the God of Sex and Drums and Rock and Roll

Strat Some nights I lose the feeling
Raven And some nights I lose control
Falco & Sloane Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Sloane And maybe I’m lonely
That’s all I’m qualified to be
Falco There’s just one and only
One and only promise I can keep
Strat As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You better believe it!

Strat, Falco & Ensemble That I would do anything for love
And you know it’s true and that’s a fact
Zahara, Raven, Sloane & Ensemble I would do anything for love
And there’ll never be no turning back

Jagwire But I’ll never do it better than I do it with you — so strong, so long
Blake & Ensemble And I would do anything for love
Ledoux Oh, I would do anything for love
Liebeswoosh & Ensemble I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
Jagwire No, I won’t do that

Strat & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Falco & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Jagwire & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Blake & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Ledoux & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Strat & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of
But I just won’t do that…

Falco & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Anything you’ve been dreaming of

Strat But I’ll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life, no way
Raven & Ensemble I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
Strat But I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that

Raven Will you raise me up?
Will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Strat & Ensemble I can do that
I can do that

Zahara Will you hold me sacred?
Will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life? I’m so sick of black and white…
Can you make it all a little less old?

Jagwire & Ensemble I can do that
Oh no, I can do that

Sloane Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

Falco & Ensemble I can do that
Oh, I can do that

Sloane Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water if I get too hot?
Raven Will you take me to places I’ve never known?

Strat, Jagwire, Falco & Ensemble I can do that
Oh no, I can do that

Raven After a while you’ll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night’s fling
And you’ll see that it’s time to move on

Strat I won’t do that
I won’t do that

Raven I know the territory, I’ve been around
It’ll all turn to dust and we’ll all fall down
Sooner or later you’ll be screwing around

Strat I won’t do that
No, I won’t do that

Raven, Zahara & Sloane I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love
But I won’t do that
Strat No, I won’t do that …
