01. We Rock

Music & lyrics by Dio
You watch their faces
You'll see the traces
Of the things they want to be
But only we can see

They come for killing
They leave and still it seems
The cloud that's left behind
Oh, can penetrate your mind

But sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock

We pray to someone
But when it's said and done
It's really all the same
With just a different name

So many voices
All giving choices
If we listen they will say
Oh, we can find the way

But we'll sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock
We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock
We Rock!

We Rock
You watch their faces
You'll see the traces
Of the things they want to be
But only we can see

They come for killing
They leave and still it seems
The cloud that's left behind
Can penetrate your mind

Sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock
We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock

Ride out - stand and shout - carry on
Sail on - Sing your song - carry on

Cause We Rock, We Rock, see how We Rock
We Rock
That's rock
We Rock
We Rock


02. The Last In Line

Music & lyrics by Dio
We're a ship without a storm
The cold without the warm
Light inside the darkness that it needs, yeah

We're a laugh without a tear
The hope without the fear
We are coming - home

We're off to the witch
We may never never never come home
But the magic that we'll feel
Is worth a lifetime

We're all born upon the cross
The throw before the toss
You can release yourself
But the only way is down

We don't come alone
We are fire we are stone
We're the hand that writes
Then quickly moves away

We'll know for the first time
If we're evil or divine
We're the last in line
We're the last in line

Two eyes from the east
It's the angel or the beast
And the answer lies between
The good and bad

We search for the truth
We could die upon the tooth
But the thrill of just the chase
Is worth the pain

We'll know for the first time
If we're evil or divine
We're the last in line
We're the last in line
Yeah
We're the last in line
Oh

Yeah
We're off to the witch
We may never never never come home
But the magic that we'll feel
Is worth a lifetime

We're all born upon the cross
You know we're the throw before the toss
You can release yourself
But the only way you go is down

We'll know for the first time
If we're evil or divine
We're the last in line
Oh, we're the last in line

See how we shine
We're the last in
We're the last in
We're the last in
We're the last in
We're the last in
We're the last in line

We're a ship without a storm
We're the cold inside the warm
We're a laugh without a tear
The hope without the fear

We're the last in line
We're the last in line
We're the last in line
See how we shine
We're the last in line


03. Breathless

Music & lyrics by Dio
You said a single word
But no one really heard
Sometimes we scream alone

It's always worse at night
When darkness kills the light
We're in the danger zone

You wait with pounding heart
You know it's just the start

Cause you're Breathless, ready to burn
Breathless, willing to learn
Breathless, the circle still turns
You're Breathless

Living inside your mind
Who knows the things you'll find
There could be hell or rainbows

But it's a funny thing
The more you feel the sting
You're just a leaf that the wind blows

You've been this way before
One step and you're through the door

And you're Breathless, ready to burn
Breathless, the circle still turns
Breathless, willing to learn
You're Breathless


04. I Speed At Night

Music & lyrics by Dio
Dark touches send rushed through the brain
Black's whiter, burns brighter than the flame
No shadows, just whispers in the wind
No faces, just places to begin
I just come seeking pleasure, I hate the light

I speed at night, at night

My demons, they seem to disappear
No vision, I only see to hear
Protection, I never needed none
Direction, just nowhere near the sun
You've go some stairs to heaven, you may be right
I only know in my world, I hate the light

I speed at night

You've got some stair to heaven, you may be right
I only know in my world, I hate the light

I speed at night


05. One Night In The City

Music & lyrics by Dio
Johnny was a dark child
He was promised to us all
But rides in the night, can lift you out of sight
When they call

Sally was a princess
She was chosen for the crown
But chains can't stop the sound

Of one night in the city
One night looking pretty

The someone opened doorways
And Johnny slipped away
Running for the bright, where dark is always light
But there's no day

The princess saw the dark child
And the dark child said her name

Come steal away, we'll play the game

Do you watch, do you see, do you know the people in me
I'm the bite, I'm the bark, I'm the scream
Are you poor, are you sure, are you holy, are you pure
I can tell you tales you just might not believe

One night in the city, one night looking pretty
One night in the city, one night looking pretty

The children shared the wonder
Of the leather and the lace
But one child went away, and one child stayed to play

For one night in the city


06. Evil Eyes

Music & lyrics by Dio
Hide in the midnight
Turn out the lights, you'll see them anyway
Sail into never, they'll follow wherever you can go
And take you to the places you don't know

It's the call of the city
The way that black's pretty to the purest heart
It's places of pleasure
They promise you treasure if you fly
And then there goes the soul of you and I

Oh do you ever think about
The way I caught the rainbow
I'll be there where fire makes you dance
I'm gonna give you the look
That opens up the skies

I've got Evil Eyes...

Hide in the midnight
Turn out the light, they'll see you anyway
Sail into never, they'll follow wherever you can go

I've got Evil Eyes...


07. Mystery

Music & lyrics by Dio
Can you hear me
Can you see
There's a storm on the edge of the sky
Does it matter
It does to me, I can tell you why

When there's thunder, there should be rain
But it don't always follow the rule
And is the wise man always right? No he can play the fool

It's always a Mystery, not what it seems to be
It's always a Mystery, just like you and me

We are lightning
We are flame
And we burn at the touch of a spark
If there's fire, but no one sees
There's only the dark

Just imagine, will you try
I can see that you've opened your mind
Silver linings can disappear, but they always shine

It's always a Mystery, not what it seems to be
It's always a Mystery, just like you and me


08. Eat Your Heart Out

Music & lyrics by Dio
It's been a long hot road I've been upon
Through the desert of your soul
I've looked high and low for water
But it's not there

All the promises of springtime
Turned to lies, so cold
But I'm stronger than you know
And I've come to let you go

Go eat your heart out
You've been a bad, bad girl
You've been hungry all of your life
So eat it out

I've been a prisoner just locked away
Inside your velvet jail
But it don't matter at all
Some things can grow without the light

Spinning cages for her pleasure
Weaving chains to hold the prize
Magic moments with the jailer
All on fire, and then he dies

We speed across emotions
And then we lose our hold
We move on wings of passion
That we can't control


09. Egypt (The Chains Are on)

Music & lyrics by Dio
In the land of the lost horizon
Where the queen lies dark and cold
When the stars won't shine, then the story's told

When the world was milk and honey
And the magic was strong and true
Then the strange ones came and the people knew

That the chains are on

In the land of no tomorrow
Where you pray just to end each day
And your life just slowly melts away

Each day you hear the sand as it moves and whispers
Come and sail on my golden sea
Maybe one day you'll be just like me... and that's free

But still your chains are on

You've seen them walking on the water
You've seen flying through the sky
They were frightening in the darkness
They had rainbows in their eyes

Whe the world was milk and honey
And the magic was strong and true
The the strange ones came and the people knew

That the chains are on
