1. What You Don't Know (Sure Can Hurt You)

Good evening! Ha ha ha, welcome to our show
If you've got that problem, yeah, well, I think that you should know
This ain't the same old story or the same old song and dance
Don't speak of faded glory 'cause you won't get a second chance

I want to tell you something, I'm someone you can trust
You'd better take a good hard look 'cause we're the diamond in this dust
Hit it! We're no overnight sensation, no Cinderella fantasy
Please no plaudits or ovations, I've heard it all before you see

CHORUS:

What you don't know sure can hurt you
What you can't see makes you scream
What you don't know sure can hurt you
What you don't have is what you dream

Ain't we a pretty picture, ain't we a load of fun?
Don't let me influence you, I'll do that when we're done
Oh, are we irritating, oh, are we grating on your nerves?
Don't you know that the good boys never get what they deserve

REPEAT CHORUS

Your brain is filled with questions, you don't know how or why
Don't look to me for answers, honey, 'cause I don't want to lie

How do you like it so far, say ain't we quite a show?
There's no one else quite like us, the others all get up and go
Don't fill my head with stories, you see I ain't no debutante
Let's get to the nitty gritty, now you give me what I want

REPEAT CHORUS

What you dream




2. The Kids Are Back

We walk the streets in tattered armies
We got the lion in our heart
We're not lookin' for trouble, just for some fun
But we're all ready if you wanna start

CHORUS:

So, just remember the
The kids are back
The kids are back
Oh, watch out
The kids are back

Well, can you blame us for living our dreams?
Just look around and you'll see why
We don't wanna follow that same routine
Maybe it's for nothin', but we gotta try

REPEAT CHORUS

Look out

Now there's no problem, no need to fuss
We ain't out to stop your fun
Don't mind us askin', 'cause we gotta know
How can we stop it when you're havin' none?

REPEAT CHORUS (twice)

The kids are back
The kids are back
The kids are back




3. Stay Hungry

Are you feeling the fire, are you ready to explode?
Are your dreams and desires riding down an open road?
I'm like a runaway, a heart without a home
Others can laugh and play
I'll fight for every inch I take, I'm desperate to the bone

Stay hungry, feel the fire
Stay hungry, don't explode
Stay hungry, with desire
Stay hungry, you're alone

Be the hunter and the hunted, keep your target in your sight
Don't be side tracked or shunted, let pretenders feel your bite
And if you start to slide never show you're weak
Don't feel you've got to hide
Remember what you're fighting for, remember what you seek

Stay hungry, feel the fire
Stay hungry, don't explode
Stay hungry, with desire
Stay hungry, you're alone

Alright

Solo - Jay Jay

If your fire is faded and you can't feel it no more
If you're tired and overrated, let me show you to the door
Expect no sympathy, there's none to be had
Open your eyes and see
There's no room for the wannabees, the has beens or the bad

Stay hungry, feel the fire
Stay hungry, don't explode
Stay hungry, with desire
Stay hungry, you're alone




4. Destroyer

He spent his life a silent sentinel for all to fear
He walks, he talks, he thinks, he feels but no one dare go near
He takes in all he sees, nothing escapes his gaze
And when he strikes, he strikes for right, a glorious sight

CHORUS:

Destroyer, Destroyer, Destroyer
He's in town

He came to be from a grand mistake, a mystical charade
Created to decide the good and bring repercussive aid
As awareness filled his fame, he examined those who leered
Then he cleaved the air with his fiery stare, rend all those there

REPEAT CHORUS

A day will come, you'll be drawn into the center of your town
And come upon a mass of steel that cracks the very ground
Prepare to meet your judge, don't think to run away
Just pray your face holds no disgrace for the deadly ace

Destroyer, Destroyer, Destroyer
He's in

REPEAT CHORUS

Oh, he's in town
You better stay out of his way
He's gonna kick your ass
Yeah

Destroyer




5. We're Not Gonna Take It

We're not gonna take it
No, we ain't gonna take it
We're not gonna take it anymore

We've got the right to choose and there ain't no way we'll lose it
This is our life, this is our song
We'll fight the powers that be just, don't pick our destiny 'cause
You don't know us, you don't belong

Oh, you're so condescending, your gall is never ending
We don't want nothin', not a thing, from you
Your life is trite and jaded, boring and confiscated
If that's your best, your best won't do

Oh
Oh
We're right, yeah
We're free, yeah
We'll fight, yeah
You'll see, yeah

We're not gonna take it
No, we ain't gonna take it
We're not gonna take it anymore

No way

Solo - Eddie

Oh
Oh
We're right, yeah
We're free, yeah
We'll fight, yeah
You'll see, yeah

We're not gonna take it
No, we ain't gonna take it
We're not gonna take it anymore

We're not gonna take it (no)
No, we ain't gonna take it
We're not gonna take it anymore (just you try and make us)

We're not gonna take it (come on)
No, we ain't gonna take it (you're all worthless and weak)
We're not gonna take it anymore (now drop and give me twenty)

We're not gonna take it (a pledge pin)
No, we ain't gonna take it (on your uniform)
We're not gonna take it anymore




6. You Can't Stop Rock n' Roll

Here it comes, you're never gonna top it
On a run, no way you can stop it
Total style, perfection in decay
Running wild, flat out all the way

CHORUS:

Now you can ride it high
And you can light the way
Lift up your hands in praise
You can't stop rock 'n' roll
You can't stop rock 'n' roll
You can't stop rock 'n' roll

Like a charging bull, it's a juggernaut
With steam at full, never to be caught
Incarnate power, roaring from the sky
While other cower, rock ain't gonna die

REPEAT CHORUS

Ow
It's an angry steed, on a never ending course
With grace and speed, it's an unrelenting force
His head thrown back, defiantly proud
Under constant attack, it's blasting, fast and loud

REPEAT CHORUS

Can't stop, can't you stop it
Can't stop, you can't stop it
Can't stop, can't you stop it
Can't stop, you can't stop it
Can't stop, can't you stop it
Can't stop, you can't stop it
Can't stop, can't you stop it
Can't stop, you can't stop it

Ow




7. Knife in the Back

Come inside, take a seat or a ride
We're so glad that you're here, now come on
Have a drink of some coke, gasoline or some rope
A guillotine, are you gone?
Don't turn around, ignore that sound
Just lie on this rack, are you starting to crack?

CHORUS:

I need this like a knife in the back
I need this like a knife in the back

Hey, my man, can you feel, can you stand?
That's a shame, really sad, do you want some more?
Like to help if I could but I don't think I should
I don't care, shall I pour?
Just lay right here, nothing to fear
All that you lack will start fading to black

REPEAT CHORUS

Ain't it sad that he's dead, was it something we said?
Such a drag, what could we do?
He was an ass, always smelling of gas
Not at all one of us, the chosen few
He turned around and heard the sound
Those with the knack get to run with the pack

REPEAT CHORUS

I need this
I need this
I need this
Like a knife in the back




8. Shoot 'Em Down

Come on, boys!
Ow!

She looks so fine like champagne or wine, no one ever gets her
Oh, ain't she cool, plays us for fools if we wanna let her
Across the room she sees some buffoon blown away by her style
She goes out of her way so that she can play and make him beg for a little while

CHORUS:

Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down to the ground

Like caviar or a fine foreign car, he's a motivator
Dressed to the T's, they're down on their knees, he's master baiter
He'll make 'em crawl for the hell of it all, he likes to see 'em cry
And then just for fun he'll say she's the one and then he'll make her die
He's gonna

REPEAT CHORUS

They don't care about feelings, they were meant to be stepped on
And while one is healing, they go and step on another one

Now, these people prey on us every day, some are bad, some badder
They think we're fools, so they make their own rules, it only gets us madder
Well, they think they're hot, well, I say they're not, they shoot us down for fun
If they wanna play, let's make 'em pay, shoot them down with a fuckin' gun

REPEAT CHORUS

Come on now!

REPEAT CHORUS

Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
Shoot 'em down, shoot 'em down
We shoot them down, come on, honey
Shoot them down, come on, shoot 'em down




9. Under the Blade

A glint of steel, a flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch, doctor's or mind
Nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find
You can't escape from the bed you've made
When your time has come, you'll accept the blade!

You're cornered in the alley way, you know you're all alone
You know it's gonna end this way, the chill goes to the bone
Now here it comes that glistening light, it goes into your side
Blackness comes, tonight's the night, blade is gonna ride

CHORUS:

Cause you're under the blade
Oh, you're under the blade

It's not another party head, this time you cannot rise
Your hands are tied, your legs are strapped, a light shines in your eye
You faintly see a razor's edge, you open your mouth to cry
You know you can't, it's over now, blade is gonna ride

REPEAT CHORUS

A glint of steel, a flash of light
You know you're not going home tonight
Be it jack or switch, doctor's or mind
There nowhere to run, everywhere you'll find
You can't escape from the bed you've made
When your time has come, you'll accept the blade!

You've tried to make it to the front, now you're pinned against the side
A monster stands before you now, its mouth is open wide
The lights go on, the night explodes, it tears into your mind
When the night does end, you'll come again, the blade is gonna ride

REPEAT CHORUS

Here it comes, baby
Ow!

Now you're under it
You're going down, down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down, down, down

Hey!
Ow!




10. Burn in Hell

Introduction - Eddie

Welcome to the abandoned land
Come on in child, take my hand
Here there's no work or play, only one bill to pay
There's just five words to say as you go down, down, down
You're gonna burn in hell
Oh, burn in hell

You can't believe all the things I've done wrong in my life
Without even trying I've lived on the edge of a knife
Well, I've played with fire, but I don't want to get myself burned
To thine own self be true, so I think that it's time for a turn
Before I burn in hell
Oh, burn in hell

Take a good look in your heart, tell me what do you see
It's black and it's dark, now is that how you want it to be?
It's up to you, what you do will decide your own fate
Make your choice now for tomorrow may be far too late
And then you'll burn in hell

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you (oh, burn in hell)
Lay no evil down on me (you're gonna burn in hell)
Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you (oh, burn in hell)
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free

Solo - left: Eddie, right: Jay Jay

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you
Lay no evil down on me (you're gonna burn in hell)
Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free (you're gonna burn in hell)

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you (oh, burn in hell)
Lay no evil down on me (you're gonna burn in hell)
Speak no evil, don't you
Think no evil, don't you (oh, burn in hell)
Play with evil, 'cause I'm free

You're gonna burn in hell

Hear no evil, don't you
See no evil, don't you (oh, burn in hell)
Lay no evil down on me




11. I Am (I'm Me)

Who are you to look down at what I believe?
I'm on to your thinking and how you deceive
Well, you can't abuse me, I won't stand no more
Yes, I know the reasons, yes, I know the score

CHORUS:

I am and I'll be
I will, you'll see
I am and I'll be
I am: I'm me

How I tried to please you, live the way you said
Do the things that you do, like the living dead
Then the truth it hit me, got me off my knees
It's my life I'm living, i'll live as I please

REPEAT CHORUS

Now's the time to stand tall, start your life anew
Freedom lies in your heart, now's the time for you

REPEAT CHORUS

I am: I'm me
I am: I'm me (can't you see)
I am: I'm me (can't you see, I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I'm me, me, me, me, me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me, can't you see)
I am: I'm me (can't you see, I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I'm me, I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me, everything)
I am: I'm me (I'm me, I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I'm me, look at me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me)
I am: I'm me (I am: I'm me)




12. I Wanna Rock

I wanna rock! (rock)
I wanna rock! (rock)
I want to rock (rock)
I wanna rock! (rock)

Turn it down you say
But all I got to say to you is time and time again I say, "no!"
No! No, no, no, no, no!
Tell me not to play
Well, all I got to say to when you tell me not to play I say, "no!"
No! No, no, no, no, no!
So, if you ask me why I like the way I play it
There's only one thing I can say to you

I wanna rock! (rock)
I wanna rock! (rock)
I want to rock (rock)
I wanna rock! (rock)

There's a feelin' that
I get from nothin' else and there ain't nothin' in the world that makes me go!

13. S.M.F.

Black sheep of the family, nothing like the rest
Separate from the others, failing all their tests
Can't they see you're different, so hungry and so lean
You're a walking wonder, you're a metal machine
Look and you'll see you're alot like me

You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.-M.-F.

Caught up in their worries and tomorrow's dream
Missing all the living, milk without the cream
They think you're so foolish, living for today
Caring just what you think, not what others say
Join with us, oh, how they'll scream and fuss

You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.-M.-F.

Solo - Jay Jay

We're the ones that live it, we're all really free
And if they think that we're sick then sick is what we'll be
Scream it loud, Know what you are, be proud

You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.M.F.
You're an S.-M.-F.




14. We're Gonna Make it

We'll make it

Been fighting for so long don't know which way up is
Been stuck and ripped and burnt till it feels like nothin'
Our time will come and when it's over and it's done
Those fools are gonna know that we ain't bluffin'

CHORUS:

We're gonna make it
We'll reach the top
We're gonna make it
And then we're never gonna stop

The power of the people ain't been showin'
It's never what you know, it's who you're knowin'
Sure it ain't right but as the saying goes it's might
That decides who stays behind and who'll be goin'

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

Alright, alright, we're gonna make it
Come on, boys, come on, boys
Ain't gonna stop until we drop
Oh, oh
Let it rock, let it roll
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Here we go, baby




15. Jailhouse Rock (Elvis cover)

The warden threw a party in the county jail.
The prison band was there and they began to wail.
The band was jumpiní and the joint began to swing.
You shouldíve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
Letís rock, everybody, letís rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was danciní to the jailhouse rock.

Spider murphy played the tenor saxophone,
Little joe was blowiní on the slide trombone.
The drummer boy from illinois went crash, boom, bang,
The whole rhythm section was the purple gang.
Letís rock, everybody, letís rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was danciní to the jailhouse rock.

Number forty-seven said to number three:
Youíre the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
Letís rock, everybody, letís rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was danciní to the jailhouse rock.

The sad sack was a sittiní on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weepiní all alone.
The warden said, hey, buddy, donít you be no square.
If you canít find a partner use a wooden chair.
Letís rock, everybody, letís rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was danciní to the jailhouse rock.

Shifty henry said to bugs, for heavenís sake,
No oneís lookiní, nowís our chance to make a break.
Bugsy turned to shifty and he said, nix nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.
Letís rock, everybody, letís rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was danciní to the jailhouse rock.




16. Train Kept A Rollin'

Well, on a train, I met a dame
She's kinda handsome, but kinda looked the same
She were pretty, from New York City
I'm walkin' down that old fair lane
