Time Take My Life
(Vincent Crane)

Eyes are blinded by tears of pain
Hopes and dreams are shattered into fragments time and time again
Life's a prison and death's the key
Time take my life (x's 9)
It's gotta bring me down. Down down down 'til I'm free.

Where's the reason and where's the rhyme
Life's a single second in the eternity of time
Life's a gift that time takes away
Time take my life (x's 9)
It's gotta bring me down. Down down down everyday, everyday.

repeat 1st verse and chorus
Until your last breath, until your last breath slips away
(that's what time is babe, that's what life's all about babe
you can't rule it babe, it's gotcha babe)


Stand By Me
(Vincent Crane)

I need you every night and day
I want you dont't turn away
Baby, you've got to stand by me
Trust me it'll be alright
If you only stay the night
Woman, you got ta stand by me

chorus
Stand by me. Stand by me. Stand by me girl, I will set you free
repeat
Stand, stand by me. Stand. stand by me. stand by me baby. stand by stand by me baby

I caught you like the animal
Woman know the round at all
Baby. you got ta stand by me
I tell you, you need a helping hand
Looks' the menis of my command
Baby. you got ta stanby me

chorus (x's 4)

repeat 1st verse

chorus (till fade)


Little Bit Of Inner Air
(Ric Parnell)

Voodoo power in the air
Mushroom's sticky sweet flower just siiting there
I gave some to my love and she lost all her hair
I aint got nothing to give now 'cept a little bit of inner air

Seven sunshine women in a bed
Imagaphonic idols and blow their heads
Black slipper crawled up thru' them but they just didn't care
'Cause I didn't have nothin' to offer them 'cept a little bit of inner air

Well I got somethin' ta say if you really want to get your way
Put voodoo in that dark red wine and this is what they'll say
They'll say really want for this and you tell 'em there's just a little bit of inner air


Don't Know What Went Wrong
(Vincent Crane)

I wake up in the morning just about the break of day
I look into the mirror but they don't know what to say
Stare in the face that's staring right back at me
Look into the eyes that never learned to see

Oh, I don'y know what went wrong
Sing my song to you (alright to you baby)

See all the people passing on the street
Looking for a friend that they never learn to meet
Back in the hall of horror I sit and stare
In the whole wide world there's no one to care

I do not know what went wrong
Sing my song to you (alright)
sing my song baby to you child

I got to sing my song, it won't take long
I don't know why, gotta really try really try to find you babe
what I really want ta give ya, what I really want tell ya. well I really want ta find ya
(ab lib.)

The day slips away and turns to the darkess night
I sit all alone and I don't want to switch on the electric light
I don't want to say that I'm all alone
I packed up to get out a millions miles from home

I don't know what went wrong
Sing my song to you
(ad lib.)


Never To Lose
(Steve Bolton)

I never had much but I gave what I had
I've been abused, I've been so sad
Now I've seen the errors of my ways
Said goodbye to all my happy days

I'm gonna try to see my way again
Aint gonna be easy aint got a friend
I know, I aint gonna lose
Aint gonna lose my way again

Now I've seen the errors of my ways
Said goodbye to all my happy days

I never had much but I gave what I had
I've been abused, I've been so sad
I know, I aint gonna lose
Aint gonna lose my way again

Time may pass but I may still remain
repeat


Introduction
(Vincent Crane)

In this day and age there's lots of trouble and strife in the world and I got a little message I want everybody to hear.
Please don't fight'n'fuss and
What?
Get it off with that bloody ...........


Breathless
(Vincent Crane)

[instrumental]


Space Cowboy
(Steve Bolton)

"Yee Haw"
Well, I'm a space cowboy ridin' the ranges of the universe
Oh listen that's the sound of my haystry
Think of those sights that greet you
Just one blast and you'll see

Oh listen it's not just a dream I have
Feel as you can be justice
Hung up on the highest sheild

Oh listen all the time I've spent on this - thank god
Very soon you'll go out gunned - thank god
Fade away like a dream - ha ha


People You Can't Trust
(Vincent Crane)

People you can't trust (x's 4)
will always let you down

They will say trust in me, but you see they will always let you down
They'll cheat you - always 'round - always 'round
that's
People you can't trust
will always let you down

People'll say that you're their friend, the love all mankind
But they really only love themselves and this is what'ca find
First they'll take all of your money and then they'll steal your wife
They'll take the coat right off your back, they'll even take your life

People - They'll always do you
People - They're out to screw you
People - Love to abuse you
People - They'll always screw you, They love to do you - Down

People you can't trust
they'll always let you down

One of these days you'll think you've found a true and faithful friend
Someone who will really stand by you until the bitter end
But if your luck gets hard up you friends will put ya down
You'll reach out for your faithful friend and he won't be around
(repeat 1st stanza)


All In Satan's Name
(Ric Parnell)

Three thousand million chessmen on a planetry board
Play the game of chess to march the hordes of demons onward
In the unfallen game out on the checkered plain

The week when all the lemmings went down to the sea
They scattered in the air they just want the evil that they fear
From the unfallen game on the checkered plain - All in satan's name

Well evil don't give ya no jive
It'll eat your soul while you're alive
So when you play the game just the holiness of your name
Keep the plain straight and you'll find your own game
Yes you will - Battle on


Close Your Eyes
(Vincent Crane)

Close your eyes clear your mind and you'll find you're free
Close your eyes clear your mind come on trust in me

You're riding down the highway, you aint got no highway shoes
But if you're born with nothing child how can you ever, ever lose

Close your eyes (chorus)

Don'tcha know, Can'tcha see, You'll be free - It's alright
Don'tcha know, Can'tcha see, Trust in me - It's alright
Dont'cha know, Can'tcha see. You'll be free - It's alright
Let it go, Then you'll know, You can see
You'll be free - you'll be free - you'll be free

Close your eyes (chorus)

This goodbye to the things you thought you had
You won't care when you realize that life's just a dream, life is a dream that's true

Close your eyes (chorus)
