01. Outlaw Man

Lyrics by Phil Mogg, Pete Way
I came out of the fifties
Now that's when men were men
I am like the red red rooster,
Always couping hens
I guess that I'm a rarity
Some call a dying breed
I am a macho bronco stallion
Call me Mr. Seed

I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm a rolling stone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm one big bone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
Motorcycle man

Love don't fit in a can

When you're talking Elvis,
Well I saw him yesterday
He touched me on the shoulder
Asked me if he could play
I buttered up my ducktail,
Put on my long black drape
I polished up my Boneville
To make those girlies gape

I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm a rolling stone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm one big bone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
Motorcycle man

Love don't fit in a can

I am one of lifes miracles
I have my fate in my hands
I see my colours before me
I am the outlaw man

The outlaw man

[Solo]

Jimmy Dean was riding next to me and Steve McQueen
And we're burning up the street now
And we're looking pretty mean
I'm not living in the past
And I'm not history
I'm here to set the records straight,
Unlock this mystery

I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm a rolling stone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
I'm one big bone
I'm a rocker
I'm a rocker
Motorcycle man

Love don't fit in a can

I am one of lifes miracles
I have my fate in my hands
I see my colours before me
I am the outlaw man

I am one of lifes miracles
I have my fate in my hands
I see my colours before me
I am the outlaw man

I'm the outlaw man


02. Quicksilver Rider

Lyrics by Michael Schenker, Mogg
I see the raven's eyes,
And I see the lights
I saw the gold rush
San Francisco nights
I am the reader,
A palmist fly
I can see the future,
I can testify
I knew Attilla,
I met Genghis Khan
Drank with Napoleon,
Held Nelson in my arms

Quicksilver rider
Medicine man
A sign of faith
Children of the damned
Quicksilver rider
Salamander man
Prophet of the guises
With the world in his hands

I've known love
I've known pain
Death and sorrow
The mighty and the slain
I was created
In 10 BC
The sign of life
The sign of seed

I met Moses,
I know Jezebel
Partied with Nero
As Rome burned and fell

Quicksilver rider
Medicine man
A sign of faith
Children of the damned
Quicksilver rider
Salamander man
Prophet of the guises
With the world in his hands

[Solo]

Rattlesnakes heads
And voodoo dolls
It's old religion
Like old creole
I am the dust of
Time and space
Your darkest nightmare
Without a face

I saw sunrise
From Enola Gay
Sat down with Ghandi
And started to pray

Quicksilver rider
Medicine man
A sign of faith
Children of the damned
Quicksilver rider
Salamander man
Prophet of the guises
With the world in his hands

Quicksilver rider
Medicine man
A sign of faith
Children of the damned
Quicksilver rider
Salamander man
Prophet of the guises
With the world in his hands


03. Serenity

Lyrics by Michael Schenker, Mogg
Baby
We're not looking for eternity
So smile now
While you're looking for this serenity

He dosses out here in doorways
Caught between wars
Tells us something is coming
Won't reveal more
She shuffles up close beside him
And kisses his ear
I guess all our time is running,
Running on fear

And it goes around,
Round, around again
Like a magic circle
Till it comes to the end

Baby
We're not looking for eternity
So smile now
While you're looking for serenity

Out from the marble palaces
Kings and queens Will rejoice
Their importance of being
Their importance of choice
And as they swung Mussolini
Like a chime in the breeze
The pope blessed his children
In a sea of sleaze

And it comes around,
Round, around again
Like a magic circle
Till it comes to the end

Baby
We're not looking for eternity
So smile now
While you're looking for serenity

[Solo]

And It still flowers
In springtime
Dogs howl at the moon
Now the funeral is leaving
To the general's own tune
All the rich and the famous
Don't know who I am
The jokers and the jugglers
Even the prince of Siam

And it goes around,
Round and round again
Like a magic circle
Till it comes to the end

Baby
We're not looking for eternity
Yeah, yeah
So smile now
While you're looking for serenity
Oh yeah

Baby
A little faith or charity
So smile now
While you're looking for serenity

Oh Baby
We're not looking for eternity
Hey,hey yeah
So smile now
While you're looking for eternity
Hey,hey yeah yeah

Baby
A little faith or charity


04. Deadman Walking

Lyrics by Michael Schenker, Mogg
The enemy is at the door
The enemy within.
Dressed up in the strangest clothes,
Smells of drinking Bombay gin.

There's a deadman walking
And his shadow's growing long.
There's a deadman walking
Taking it in
Before his time is gone.

My father was a Russian Jew
My Irish mother crazy.
I see summer, winter, fall.
When grown men
Cry like babies.

There's a deadman walking
And his shadow's growing long.
There's a deadman walking
Taking it in
Before his time is gone.

[Solo]

Wish I never had to leave.
Wish I'd never known.
Wish I could stay here forever.
Watch my garden grow.

There's a deadman walking
And his shadow's growing long.
There's a deadman walking
Taking it in
Before his time is gone.

There's a deadman talking
And his shadow's growing long.
There's a deadman talking
Taking it in
Before his time is gone.

There's a deadman walking
Deadman walking
Deadman talking


05. Shadow Dancer

Lyrics by Schenker, Mogg, Steve Fontano
I am back in the circus
Oh hustling days
I look at the world
In a rose coloured haze
Cramp tight bodies
Jive and girate
Bump and grind to the rhythm of fate
And we spun in the sunlight
Of our long summers day
We kissed the heavens now
It's still a beautiful day

Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
My hammer headed friends
And the puppet girls call
Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
The dance is coming back,
Back in my world

Married a model
From old Hong Kong
Came to England
Just a singing my song
This love in a letter
Sure didn't last
Stamped her passport
Never saw her arse

And we spun in the sunlight
Of our long summers day
We kissed the heavens now
It's still a beautiful day

Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
My hammer headed friends
And the puppet girls call
Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
The dance is coming back,
Back in my world

[Solo]

Unlucky in life,
Unlucky in love
No special blessing from above
Fools and horses
Come to my door
I am the stranger
Who sleeps on the floor

We spun in the sunlight
Of our long summers day
We kissed the heavens now
It's still a beautiful day

Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
My hammer headed friends
And the puppet girls call
Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
The dance is coming back,
Back in my world

Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
My hammer headed friends
And the puppet girls call
Back on my wall
Shadow dancer
The dance is coming back,
Back in my world


06. Someone's Gonna Have To Pay

Lyrics by Paul Raymond
American beauty
Came up and spoke
She touched her toes
And we shared a joke
Taxi's, limos,
Power boat glides
Jet skies, mensa,
Babes without a ride

You know the revolutions gone now
There's no revolution song
Somewhere down the line
You know on one of Gods good days
Can you hear me,
Someone's gonna have to pay

Moonshot, rockets
Nineteen sixties cool
Sonny Boy Williamson,
Pope John Paul
The Congo to Vietnam
The Beatles to the Stones
Is nobody left
Who's gonna shake those bones?

You know the revolutions gone now
There's no revolution song
Somewhere down the line
You know on one of Gods good days
Can you hear me,
Someone's gonna have to pay

Pay all the time

[Solo]

All of the misfits
All of the scars
All of life's promises
Bottled in jars
There's a hum and a howl.
Lovers on the run
Tell me what's on offer
From the government scum

[Solo]

Rats will get richer
And the dirt beg for more
Crumbs on the table
For the world of the poor
News of self worship
Fresh from Hollywood
The pygmies of poison,
Don't know bad from good

You know the revolutions gone now
There's no revolution song
Somewhere down the line
You know on one of Gods good days
Can you hear me,
Someone's gonna have to pay

Oh that's pay all the time
Someones got to pay

You ain't walkin'
You ain't talkin'
You got to pay

While I'm looking over your shoulder
You got to pay


07. Sea Of Faith

Lyrics by Schenker, Gary Barden
Say sayonara darling
This time goodbye
No bon voyage,
It's time to fly
I can see the breakdown coming
Like a twisted wreck
Let's save ourselves the sorrow
Before we hit the deck

From the high plains
To the border
All across the land
From the flying of the flag
To lovers kissing hands

You can cover me in roses
Put nickles on my eyes
There be no tomorrows,
No more goodbyes
Sea of faith
Where did she go
Little diamonds
How you shine and glow
Looking at the future I don't know
I am just here to watch the river flow

A street full of whispers,
Rings like a chinese gong
A room full of would be's
Whose lives have gone wrong

The blues don't exist now
Just to cleanse your soul
They were made to wake you up
Not to dig a hole

You can cover me in roses,
Put nickles on my eyes
There be no tomorrows,
No more goodbyes
Sea of faith
Where did she go
Little diamonds
How you shine and glow
Looking at the future I don't know
I am just here to watch the river flow

[Solo]

Say sayonara darling
This time goodbye
No bon voyage,
It's time to fly
I can see the breakdown coming
Like a twisted wreck
Let's save ourselves the sorrow
Before we hit the deck

It's something of a tragedy
It would make you weep
When you kiss your love goodnight
Now I see why lovers leap

You can cover me in roses,
Put nickles on my eyes
There be no tomorrows,
No more goodbyes
Sea of faith
Where did she go
Little diamonds
How you shine and glow
Looking at the future
I don't know
I am just here to watch
The river flow

Little diamonds
How you shine and glow
Looking at the future
I don't know
I am just here to watch
The river flow

Little diamonds
How you shine and glow


08. Fighting Man

Lyrics by Mogg, Way
Hearts of darkness
Falling down,
It's raining stones
Fate is driving
Now theres no meat
On the bone
There's a hurricane coming,
What a bitter pill
There's a distant drumming,
Coming over the hill
She took everything,
Got my jack in her hand
I was born so now
I'm just a fighting man,
A fighting man

Cold Wild Turkey
Drives a spike right through my brain
Bar room mothers
Waiting for the gravy train

It's a cold wind a blowing,
Gone out of control
Time is a running,
Touching my very soul
She took everything,
Got my jack in her hand
I was born so now
I'm just a fighting man,
A fighting man

[Solo]

Ashes to ashes
Trash is still trash
It's only a moment now
And we're gone in a flash

Silver lining
Where's the man
With the master plan
Hearts of darkness
Spreading out
All across this land

There's a hurricane a'coming,
What a bitter pill
There's a distant drumming,
Coming over the hill
She took everything,
Got my jack in her hand
I was born so now
I'm just a fighting man,
A fighting man

She took everything,
Got my jack in her hand
I was born so now
I'm just a fighting man,
A fighting man

Just a common man
Just a common man


09. Perfect View

Lyrics by Schenker, Mogg, Fontano
My sweet darling night
How the city swings
A little kiss of angels
A little tune of things
And she mesmerizes,
Captivates
A message for
A heart that aches

Now you are 16
And your stuck in jail
18 plus
There's no sign of bail
And she mesmerizes,
Captivates
A message for
A heart that aches

My thousand dollars
Ain't going nowhere
And the revelations
Kiss, tell, and dare
I've got a perfect view
Of what I want to do
I've got a perfect view
Am I getting through to you?

21 is easy,
But I don't know why
There's no difference
This bird will fly

My thousand dollars
Ain't going nowhere
And the revelations
Kiss, tell, and dare
I've got a perfect view
Of what I want to do
I've got a perfect view
Am I getting through to you?

[Solo]

And she mesmerizes,
Captivates
A message for a
Heart that aches

My sweet darling night
How the city swings
A little kiss of angels
A little tune of things
My thousand dollars
Ain't going nowhere
And the revelations
Kiss, tell, and dare
I've got a perfect view
Of what I want to do
I've got a perfect view
Am I getting through to you?

I've got a perfect view
Of what I really want to do
I've got a perfect view
Am I getting through to you?

Perfect view

I've got a perfect view


10. Crossing Over

Lyrics by Schenker, Mogg
I see the lights,
I see the road
I see everything in the
Highway code
I've been whipped
And I've been spun cown
There ain't no religion here
And I'm homeward bound

Wherever you go,
Wherever you are
I am crossing over
To the other side
And now I am waiting for an answer,
Some kind of sign
Looking for a love
To be my guide
I am crossing over
To the other side

Friendships come
And lifetimes go
In their passing to the
Bigger show
The river runs,
The tides will turn
If there's a hell,
Well I've yet to learn

Wherever you go,
Wherever you are
I am crossing over
To the other side
And now I am waiting for an answer,
Some kind of sign
Looking for a love
To be my guide
I am crossing over
To the other side

To dream the dream that's over
Before it's gone
To hold your lover here
While your heart beats so strong
Baby when I love you
When everything is gone
When I'm kissing heaven
This love is never wrong

[Solo]

I hear the singing,
I hear the shout
The talk of meaning
For those in doubt
But amid all the wailing and
The wringing hands
Everybody thinks
Does anyone understand?

Wherever you go,
Wherever you are
I am crossing over
To the other side
And now I am waiting for an answer,
Some kind of sign
Looking for a love
To be my guide
I am crossing over
To the other side

I am crossing over
To the other side
And now I am waiting for an answer,
Some kind of sign
Looking for a love
To be my guide
Cos I am crossing over
To the other side
