Track Name: Fire on the Mountain
Your eyes fixed on the setting sun
Journey has just begun
Searching for a land of gold
Fire burning in your soul
CHORUS
Fire on the mountain clearly to see
Fire on the mountain is calling me
Fire on the mountain hills are burnin
Fire on the mountain the smoke is churnin
The temperature’s rising
On the devil’s horizon
Walk into the danger zone
Gotta find the mother load
CHORUS-Fire on the mountain
hey hey hey yeah
To the horizon paved in gold
The sun is cryin, night grows cold
Moon is yearning, lights up the track
Some of the men ain’t comin back
Water, sweet water
Water, gimme water
Water, to find water
Water, gimme water
CHORUS-Fire on the mountain
Oh well the sun is cryin, oh the moon is yearnin
Oh the sun is cryin, oh the moon is yearnin
Calling me, calling me, calling me, calling me
Oh the sun is cryin, oh the moon is yearnin
Track Name: Rock Pile
Scream the news right across the land
It’s comin back to stay
Party paralysed through the night
The rock came back today
Been away for far too long
It seems a thousand years
With all the shit the radio plays
Its a wonder that I’m still here
CHORUS................
Rockpile, Rockpile
Don’t end up on the Rockpile
Rockpile, Rockpile
Don’t end up on the Rockpile
Nitro was a goodtime guy
He could take it all the way
He stopped rockin in 99
When the rock, it went away
Burnin on the Rockpile
Drugs best left alone
Casualty of rock n roll
Rockpile, it starts to grow
CHORUS-Rockpile
Rock came back today
Rock came back today
Never go away
Rock came back today- (Repeat)
Oh I’m comin down now mama
Thunder of the kick drum
Begins to start the show
Bass slams down & starts to grind
The rock it starts to grow
Screaming with their feedback
Guitars hold back the tide
Smoke pours from the amp stacks
The Rock it comes alive
CHORUS - Rockpile
Yeahhhh
Rock came back today
Rock came back today
Never go away- (Repeat)
Don’t get caught up on the rockpile
Track Name: Switchblade Knife
Thunder & lighting came down from the sky
Cut in the dark & I don’t know why
I crossed my heart that I didn’t die
Stop living in fear for the rest of my life
CHORUS...........
Give me a switchblade in the morning
Give me a switchblade in the night
With my switchblade I’ll take possession
Take back my life
In the end, with a switchblade knife.............
Angels of mercy are ying around me
Washing the blood from the blade still in me
It was cold, it was hard, it cut me like butter
My spirit, it rose, pulled me up from the gutter
CHORUS-Give me a switchblade
It was a rainy forecast the night you cut my heart
The moon shone down, the blade glistened in the dark
Thunder & lightening smashed me to the ground
Lying in a pool of blood with my angels ying around
Lying in a pool of blood with my angels ying around
Thunder & lightening came down from the sky
Cut in the dark & I don’t know why
I crossed my heart that I didn’t die
Stop living in fear for the rest of my life
CHORUS-Give me a switchblade
In the end, with a switchblade knife.............
In the end, with a switchblade knife.............
Oh you cut me baby, you cut my heart
Oh you cut me baby, right from the start
Yeah you cut me baby, with your switchblade knife
Oh you cut me baby, outta your life
Yeeeeeeah, Oooooh
Yeeeeeeah, Oooooh
Oh you cut me baby....... knife
Oh you cut me baby
Track Name: Rock Town
Is this the place
That public disgrace
Lets all get shit faced
There’s talk of a place but I ain’t yet seen it
They rock 24hrs, you’ve gotta believe it
The girls they wear their guitars on their hip
You better be fast on this wild west trip
CHORUS...............
Is this the place
A public disgrace
They all get shit faced
They wanna turn you on in Rocktown Rocktown
Rocktown Rocktown Rocktown Rocktown
They party real hard in Rocktown
Met her on the dance oor on sunset strip
Said she wanted to fuck me & then gave me lip
Seemed so surprised when I jumped in her car
Well I’m o to a place now it isn’t too far
CHORUS-Is this the place
I don’t wanna leave here
Cause I’m addicted to it
Wild women, booze & song
Turn my lights on
Well the population is a 110
They’re out on the streets & they’re raging again
No law & order needed so far
All the cops are crooked
And the town rocks hard
CHORUS-Is this the place
I don’t wanna leave here
Cause I’m addicted to it
Paramedics are on hold
This Rocktown can’t be controlled
OUCH..........
Is this the place they call ROCK TOWN?
Track Name: Geronimo
Geronimo knew he had to go
When the train pulled out real slow
He’d lost his mojo
He was broke inside
To do or to die
In the blinking of an eye
He would never cry
He was broke inside
And hail to the people that loved him now
And curse all the people that wrecked him down
He had a warrior soul & he set his people free
CHORUS..........
He was a revolutionary
He was a revolutionary
He was a revolutionary, oh to me oh oh oh
ooooh
With his world in chains he could not run
Staring at the barrel of his loaded gun
When the sun went down, he kissed the ground
& prayed
In the still of the night,
He woke up in fright
His spirit had taken flight
He was broke inside
And hail to the people who loved him now
And curse the people who wrecked him down
Had a warrior soul & set his people free
CHORUS-He was a revolutionary
And hail to the people that loved him now
And curse the people that wrecked him down
He had a warrior soul & he set his people free
Then came his nal test
At his gravesite they molest
Legend says, his bones unrest at Yale
CHORUS-He was a revolutionary
Only takes one man to start a revolution
Geronimo was a revolution
Geronimo was a revolution
Geronimo was a revolution
Hey yeah, oooohoohooo oooohoohooo
(Indian chant)
Track Name: Reach for the Bottle (Mescal 109)
Don’t give me no water
Don’t give me no wine

But I sure can’t put out this re

CHORUS............
Reach, reach for the bottle
Oh reach Mescal 109
Come on reach, reach for the bottle
Come on reach Mescal 109

Daytime comes & I’m sleepin
Who or what’s at the end of the road
I don’t care cause I’m peakin
CHORUS-Reach for the bottle
Wew hooo, wew hooo,
Wew hooo, wew hooo, I’m howlin
Oh Lock me up with your ball & chain
Throw away my hearts desire

Racing to my funeral pyre
CHORUS-Reach for the bottle
Lets hear some blues.............
Mescal 109, Mescal 109
I’m feelin a little drunk right now

Oh lay me down, Oh lay me down
Just a one more day, I live to drink again

Track Name: Follow You Home
Catch me baby
Before I hit the ground
I party hardy, all over town
Oh take me back
Stop me running wild
Just a kick my ass now for a little while
CHORUS..............
If I follow you home will you keep me
If I follow you home will you keep me
I’ll follow you anywhere you lead me
Just don’t lock me up & defeat me....
defeat me
I’m too rough too ready
And I ain’t no saint
All that cloak & dagger
Was your mistake
Well our loves too strong
We cannot be friends
Lets try again baby
Before our hearts won’t mend
Getting hurt is part of lovin
It happens all the time
Lets pretend that we’ve just met
And leave our past behind
CHORUS-If I follow you home
Don’t you lock me up & throw away the key
Don’t you lock me up & make a prisoner out
of me
Better watch what your doing
You’ll tear us both apart
Better watch what your doing
You’ll shatter both our hearts
CHORUS-If I follow you home
Don’t you throw away that key baby......!
Track Name: Hearts Ablaze
When Viking's say goodbye
Tears fall from the sky
To face the world to die
And to know he had to do it
To battle sword & foe
With the crossbow of your soul
Fire breathes deep delight
Gives you strength in which to ght
CHORUS...........
With hearts ablaze, metals warm & blood is cold
With hearts ablaze, driven by your ancient soul
With hearts ablaze, now you conquer the unknown
With hearts ablaze, metals warm & blood is cold
In your dreamboat safe & long
Ride the rhythm of your song
The wind is in your sails
Destiny.............Impails, your love
CHORUS-With hearts ablaze
His spirits speak, come back to me
Fortune favours the brave
Or to die in a shallow grave
With treasures rich in gold
And maidens white as snow
Steal it all away, steal it all away
Yeah you gotta steal it all away
Steal it all away
Get back home someday
Steal it all away
Land ho ! Land ho !
Land ho ! Land ho !
Track Name: Never Too Late (For My Mother Judy)
Never too late to love somebody
Never too late to change your mind
Down at the crossroads of tomorrow
Destiny plays its cosmic rhyme
Yeahhhhhh.........
I never thought I’d meet a heart of gold
I never dreamed of knowing which way to go
When someone comes along & opens up your soul
That’s your sunrise
Throw away your locks & all your sorrow
Cast aside your bleeding doubt
Just a smile puts you in motion
Love will nally seek you out
Never too late to love somebody
Never too late to change your mind
Down at the crossroads of your tomorrow
Destiny plays its cosmic rhyme
Yeahhhhhh............
Love will nally seek you out
Track Name: Rock Til Ya Die
Hey yeah alright alright
Yeah alright alright
Shout out loud a face in the crowd
In the name of rock n roll
Come on feel the drum pounding on your soul
Too loud, the bells will toll
But you won’t run & hide
Come on rock this world hard before you die
You know you gotta do it
You know you have to try
Fight for what ya doin
Rock hard til ya die
CHORUS..................
Rock til ya die, Rock til ya die
Rock til ya die, Rock til ya die
When your back’s against the wall
And your just too high to fall
Better learn to defend yourself
Gotta come out ghting when you hear them
ring that bell
And you know you’ve gotta do it
You know you gotta try
Fight for what ya doin
Rock hard til ya die
CHORUS-Rock til ya die
When I think about all the love I left behind
And I ponder all those friends that were once mine
As I wander through the chapels of my mind
Through the old dreams, like crystal bullets
All come to life
Ride like the wind, sit hard in the saddle
Dodgin the stones thrown by the rabble
Victory will come with your battles
Oh oh oh
Shout out loud a face in the crowd
In the name of rock n roll
Come on feel the drum pounding on your soul
Too loud, the bells will toll
But you won’t run & hide
Come on rock this world hard before you die
You know you gotta do it
You know you have to try
Fight for what ya doin
Rock hard til ya die
CHORUS-Rock til ya die
Track Name: Tighten Your Grip
Time goes by me
It owers & it falls
Sweet sweet memories
Answer all my calls
Love its like Halloween
A trick or treat to go
Fills up my emptiness
Love pulls you to & fro
CHORUS.............
I watched you slip away
I watched you slip away
I watched you slip away
You can tighten your grip
But there’s nothin to hang onto
You can tighten your grip
But there’s nothin to hang onto
You can tighten your grip
But there’s nothin to hang onto
Arrrrgh huh...........
You can’t do anything
Anything at all
One day your here
And then one day your gone
Leaving no shadow
Moonbeams all once shone
Death walks beside you
Then holds your hand too long
CHORUS-I watched you slip away
Arrrrgh huh...........Arrrrgh huh.....
Dissolving into ether
Dissolving into dust
Mirror shows no reection
Soap bubbles they all burst
Soap bubbles they all burst
CHORUS-I watched you slip away
Arrrrgh huh...........Arrrrgh huh......
Arrrrgh huh...........Arrrrgh huh......
Oooooooh, ooooooooh
Tighten your grip
