Retro Active Lyrics

Desert Song

Dark and dirty
like you have never seen
a mind so twisted
with thoughts so unclean.
My heart is racing
all tattered and torn
I stand here naked
as the day I was born.

Over and over I stand
I'm holding the world in my hand
I got to believe

The sky is falling
on this setting son
Echoes of silence
ringing loud and long
This isolation
is the king of pain
A lost horizon
in an ocean of flames

Only the lonely will stand
I'm holding the world in my hand
I got to believe

I've been here before,
but not as I stand here today
I wait for the dawn
ready to walk
into the light

Fractured Love

Sometimes it ain't what it seems
I'm all in a daze
Can't find my way out of this maze
I'm looking for clues
And wanting a change in the rules
I'm locked in a cage
Acting out on the wrong stage

Don't want your sympathy
Don't need the third degree
Just got to break away and scream
I'm caught in a dream

I'm stood at the edge and I'm looking down
Caught in the danger zone
I feel like a king that has lost his crown
And now I stand here alone

Don't want your sympathy
Don't need the third degree
Just got to break away and scream
I'M CAUGHT IN A DREAM!!!

Fractured love, Fractured love
Iron fist in a velvet glove
Fractured Love, fractured love
Cracks in the mirror of this fractured love

I don't care if you pull down the sky
Angry passion is a friend of mine
Reach out for the sky above
It's just a fractured love

Repeat Chorus

I'm caught in a dream
Why don't you set me free!!

Solo

Don't want your sympathy
Don't want your third degree
Just got to break...
BREAK AWAY AND SCREAM!!!

I'm caught in a dream
Why don't you set me free

Repeat Chorus

Don't give me your fractured love!

Action

So you think you'll take another piece of me
To satisfy your intellectual need
Do you want, do you want...Action?

Gonna bring you down cause you're pushin' me
You gotta recognize my superiority

Liar, liar
You know you believed it
Liar, liar
Cause I'm the main man
And that's why...

Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guaranteed
Everybody wants a piece of the action

I was suicidal cause she was my idol
Baby baby baby bring it to your knees
Well there was a time I would have walked the line
Don't you bring me down with your insatiable greed

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus

Do you want... Action!! Action!!
Everybody wants, everybody needs
Everybody wants, everybody needs

Repeat Bridge and Chorus

Two Steps Behind (Acoustic Version)

Walk away if you want to
it's ok, if you need to
you can run, but you can never hide
From the shadow that's creeping up beside you
There's a magic running through your soul
But you can't have it all

(Whatever you do)
I'll be two steps behind you
(Wherever you go)
and I'll be there to remind you
that it only takes a minute of your precious time
to turn around and I'll be two steps behind.

Take the time
to think about it
Walk the line, you know you just can't fight it
Take a look around and see what you can find
Like the fire that's burning up inside me,
There's a magic running through your soul
But you can't have it all

(Whatever you do)
I'll be two steps behind you
(Wherever you go)
and I'll be there to remind you
that it only takes a minute of your precious time
to turn around and I'll be two steps behind.

There's a magic running through your soul
but you, you can't have it all
(Whatever you do)
I'll be two steps behind you
(wherever you go)
and I'll be there to remind you
that it only takes a minute of your precious time
To turn around and I'll be two steps behind.

Two steps behind
yeah, baby
two steps behind
ohh, sugar
two steps behind

She's Too Tough

Black stockings and a high-heeled dress
Good-looking but her face is a mess
She's no angel, oh no
Love loaded she's got plenty to spare
She'll pull your trigger if only you dare
She's no angel, oh no

She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it
She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it

Hands off, well it's Catch-22
Y' can't touch if she can't have you
She's no angel, oh no...
Whiplash give you six of the best
Lay back let her mind do the rest
She's no angel, oh no.

She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it
She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it
She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it
She's too tough
Can't help it, She just can't help it

Miss You In A Heartbeat

I believe, that there's something deep inside
That shouldn't be from time to time.
I sure found out, thought love was such a crime
The more you care, the more you fall
No need to worry, no need to turn away
'Cause it don't matter, anyway

(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you in a heartbeat
(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you right away
(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you in a heartbeat
'cause it ain't love, if it don't feel that way
oh no

When we touch, I just lose my self control
A sad sensation I can't hide
To love is easy, it ain't easy to walk away
I keep the faith and there's a reason why, yeah
No need to worry, no need to turn away
'Cause it don't matter, anyway
baby

(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you in a heartbeat
(oohh oohh oohh)
Yeah I miss you right away
(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you in a heartbeat
'cause it ain't love, if it don't feel that way

Now, I ain't big on promises, I'll be true to you
'Cause I'd do 'bout anything, yeah
for some one like, baby for you

(oohh oohh oohh)
I miss you in a heartbeat
(oohh oohh oohh)
yeah I miss you right away
(oohh oohh oohh)
oh, I'm gonna miss you in a heartbeat
'cause it ain't love, if it don't feel that way

Only After Dark

Ahh,
I feel my spirit fly, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh
I, I kiss the world good-bye, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh
Night, with the city lights, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh
Run like a runaway, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh

Won't you disappear
Into midnight again

Why don't you come
Why won't you come
Why don't you fly fly fly with me
Sweet innocent fate will be our company

Ahh, Ahhh, Ahh, Ahhh
We at the plant remain, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh
Moon, simple as can be, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh,
It's wrong to feel so free, only after dark
Ahh, Ahhh
Only you do it to me, only after dark

Repeat Bridge

[guitar solo outro]

Ride Into The Sun

Revvin' up, hundred 'n' four
Hammer down, foot to the floor
Such a hard ride
Ride into the sun
Shootin' in
Got a ticket to ride
Movin' out
This is no place to hide
When you're ridin'
Ride into the sun

We gonna make it baby
So step inside
And if we make it baby
We're gonna ride into the sun
Just ride into the sun

Burn it up
We're gonna cruise
Kick down
Nothin' to lose
When you're ridin'
Ride into the sun

A hot shot
Hooked on the street
I'm in love
Got the fire in me
When I'm ridin'
Ride into the sun

We gonna make it baby
So step inside
And if we make it baby
We're gonna ride
Ride on!

We gonna make it baby
So step inside
And if we make it baby
Ya know we're gonna
Ride
Ride into the sun
Yeah
Ride into the sun
Just ride into the sun
Yeah
Hey!

From The Inside

I am bad, I am evil
I am winter, I am pain
I'll mess up your life
I'll beat up your wife
I'll lose all your friends
And I'll win in the end

So you play the Joker
And I'll play the Clown
And I'll laugh while you're up there
And I'll laugh when you're down
Though your screams break the silence
Oh, they won't make a sound
Na na na na na na naaa

I will rise, I will take you
I will break you, never let you go
I'll shoot through your veins
I'll drive you insane
I'll poison your breath
And I'll love you to death

So you be the Joker
And I'll be the Clown
And you'll laugh when you're up there
But you'll cry when you're down
Though your screams break the silence
Oh, they won't make a sound
Na na na na na na naaa

Repeat Chorus

Na na na na na na naaa (x2)

Ring Of Fire

Fun girl, you tempted me, a feast of sparks
in the night is what I need
Ooh I'm a-ready to roar, and I'm a-ready for more
And I'm a-ready to burn like the light into the dawn

Oh I gotta see the fire in me, turning into ecstasy
So stick around and settle down enjoy the mystery
A voice in the wilderness, there's somethin' in the air
A little love won't bring your precious self a secret flame

Fun girl
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Feels like fire
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Ring of fire

I left, so indiscreet, you're stealing all of the fire
electric me
I'm staring into the sun, I'm staring into a gun
I'm staring at the sky, turn it out and let it burn

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus

Fun girl, you tempted me, ya cut me up
Like a knife so tenderly
Oh I gotta see the fire in me, burning up my ecstasy
A little love won't bring your precious self a secret flame.
Oh no

Repeat Chorus

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh

I Wanna Be Your Hero

I wanna be your hero

You put a sting in my tail
A magic ride
And I'm-a hot on your trail

I'm on my way
Hot licks on the tip of my tongue
Electric you turn your headlight on

Ooh yeah
Get up and go

Ring Of Fire (Alternate Lyrics)

Thunder, you're tempting me, a feast of spice
In the night is what I need
Oooh, I'm ready to roar and I'm ready for more
And I'm ready to burn like a light into the dawn

Oh I gotta see the fire in me, turning into ecstasy
So stick around and settle down enjoy the mystery
A voice in the wilderness, there's something in the air
A hidden love, forbidden pleasure, suffer secret pain

Thunder
(Are you ready, ready for burning)
Feels like fire
(Are you ready, ready for burning)
Ring of fire

Heartless, so indiscreet, you're stealing up
From behind a raging heat

I'm staring into the sun, I'm staring into a gun
I'm stirring up a storm, turn it on and let it burn

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Chorus

Thunder, you tempted me, you cut me up
Like a knife so tenderly
Oh I gotta see the fire in me, burning up my ecstasy
A hidden love, forbidden pleasure, suffer secretly
Oh no
