01. Chains Chains

Lyrics by Pete Way, Phil Mogg
Jack of Diamonds is a gambling man
He played the tables whenever he can
Take some advice boy stay clean stay out of his way
Little Jeannie is a dancing queen
She's been shaking it since she was sixteen
Skips across the tables acting out her passion play

(1) It wasn't for money, it's only a chance
You take a gamble, got shot for romance
Chains, chains pulling you down
Chain of life that turns the world around
Chains chains pulling you down
Chain of life that turns the world around

Without a warning Jeannie took off one night
Jack got so mean boy, he just had to fight
He died on the floor someone else evens the score
Back on the tables Jeannie's romance had died
That one look of love had told her a lie
And for her there's no waves crashing on seashores

(1) Repeat

[Instrumental]

Chains chains...chains chains...


02. Long Gone

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
Skulking in the mean streets whispering in the halls
Redlight bandits on the corner give no quarter calls
Infectious garbage fills the streets and in their eyes you know
A thin blue line bends and breaks stop the overflow

(1) Fan the flames of the city's heat
In dark corners hiding never seen
Desperation and the trouble flares
Alarm guns ring running scared

And you're long gone, down in this hell
Long gone down in this hell
So baby won't you hold me tight
Let your softness fill my night
We've got a dream don't let it slip away
'In your eyes I can see the fear
This town never sheds a tear
We're gonna be /out someday/walking away

Keep on looking for a holy one,
Some kind of hero or a prophet to come
Visionaries dance your night away
There's no tomorrow living for today
But you're long gone down in this hell
Long gone down in this hell

[Instrumental]

I saw the stars come out tonight so lonely and immune
Summer rain kissed the streets that bleed like open wounds
Patrol cars sweep the avenues down on Forty Eighth
While faces in dark doorways wait around the hate

(1) Repeat

(2) Baby better walk away
Baby better walk away
We'll be busting out someday

(2) repeat
[Instrumental]


03. The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
Who's dressed to kill, out to thrill
Waiting for you tonight
We'll I'll kneel down to the ground
Waiting for the warning sound
Something's got to bit

(1) And I 'm looking for a wild rose
In the heat of the night
Waiting for a show
Looking for a wild rose
In the heat of the night
Waiting for a show

(2) And the wild, the willing and the innocent
Are down, down in the jungle tonight
As the jackal tracks every step you make
Watching, waiting for the one chance to bite

Time was right, [the sexy light?]
In the final dangerous game
Trap set, in the net
Feel my hands start to sweat
Ooh I'm taking aim

Repeat (1)

Repeat (2)

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Cold black steel, your last meal
The hand of fate has come
Phone taps, blueprint maps
[Making my move in style]
Public Enemy Number One

Repeat (1)

Repeat (2)


04. It's Killing Me

Lyrics by Way, Mogg
Living inside a bottle
Strung out on a line
Caught in life's rough and tumble
Blind leading the blind
I wish there was an answer
But she's got such an easy way
And you know you can't leave her
And you know you can stay

(1) Oh it's killing me
Oh, love's a mystery
Oh, it's killing me
Oh, love's a mystery

We're hiding from the small talk
And hiding all the pain
With our backs against the wall
Is all this love in vain

(1) Repeat

When I'm with you you know I try so hard
Not to love you but I keep up my guard
Every single day that goes by
Are we fooling ourselves living a lie

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Please tell me now it's no secret
Is there surrender with defeat
Do you let love pass you by
Walk to a different beat

(1) Repeat


05. Makin' Moves

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
All the boys hangin' out down in the parking lot
The night riders giving all they got
While the girls look so good at looking bad
Out strutting dressed in the latest fad
Valentino looks for something new
Escapes for the night and waits his cue
And I love the way they make their move
Yes I love the way they make you move

Kids called "Hammerheads" like battle dress
Got his act down, some kind of fearless
And tonight they're gonna make the run
Downtown, called the garrison
From the backrows through the alleys he screams
You gotta get up and be mean, mean, mean
And I love the way they make their move
Yes I love the way they make you move

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Rotten place going nowhere fast
Some gonna make it, some don't even last
Just one night they don't give a damn
I'm the star of yet another sham
There's no silver and there's no gold
There's just that one shot before they're old
And I love the way they make their move
Yes I love the way they make you move
Ooh I love I just love the way they make their move
Makin' moves


06. Lonely Heart

Lyrics by Chapman, Way, Mogg
Sarah has her dreams and makes her plans
To get what she wants when she can
A little bit of heaven was all she asked for
In the silent moments deep in the night
She'd find herself make it feel all right
Hungers for the bright light and something more

With her young heart so gently beating
A secret rendezvous love was meeting
Out in the night, out in the night night night night
Played on the radio, heard on the news
Baby's gone lost they found her shoes
You can turn out the light
You better turn out the light

(1) You go walking on the wild side
Learn how to run 'cause you can't hide
Better steel yourself away
Another page, another day
In your lonely heart
Beating out in the dark
Lonely heart

And beneath the lights the rock 'n' roll band
Electric guitars, one night stands
Are you giving away, giving away
With hungry and oh so desperate eyes
The souls who get hurt believe in their lies
You only betray only betray

[INSTRUMENTAL]

And now you cry yourself to sleep
Against the odds you wanted to beat
You never say no, never say no no no no
Left with the promises that you swore
The price you pay is the love you tore
Now where did it go, where did it go

(1) Repeat


07. Couldn't Get It Right

Lyrics by Chapman, Way, Mogg
You wake up in the morning
Look for a clue, something new
Turn on the radio and it's as dead
As the visions dying in your head
And when you were young
You had big ideas no hidden fears
You had your heroes they were walkin' tall
Now your devotion seems comical

(1) So now you' got older
And the world's got colder than it used to be
Every day gets longer and turns into the darker night
Down in the gutter nothing seems to matter but your history
I couldn't get it, I couldn't get it right

You played the game as children
Didn't understand life's not so grand
Love hurts you and you can be the lonely, lonely one
Some people got it easy
They got it made, so unafraid
You'll be the fool and find the winner he's gonna take it all

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]

(1)Repeat


08. Profession Of Violence

Lyrics by Chapman, Mogg
Hey babe what we gonna do
No look behind me glances
Straight time this time
We'll take our chances
Darling it's been so long
Every lonely hour
What the sinner pulls the trigger
And the world turns sour

(1)Whisper in the wind
Locked in silence
Profession of violence
Whisper on the wind
Locked in silence
Profession of violence

Try to pick up the pieces
Maybe move away
But the laughter
Was only yesterday
Down the halls of justice
The echoes never fade
Notches on my gun
Another debt is paid

(1) Repeat

[INSTRUMENTAL]


09. Hot 'N' Ready

Lyrics by Michael Schenker, Mogg
You knock me out you're like a well oiled smith & wesson
Hot & ready, ready to use
Dressed to the nines, you know you don't look 15, there's no question
Hot & ready, ready to use
I'm coming through I've gotta get to you babe
I'm coming through I've gotta get to you babe

Don't need i.d. and there's no house detective to crowd you...
Hot & ready, ready to use
Slip in the back door and slip out of what ever your into
Hot & ready, ready to use
I'm coming through I've gotta get to you babe (2x)
