Girl before the mirror

Appraises her disguise

Child become a mother

Tries to fix her eyes

No more of his excuses

It has to be today

She can keep her fantasy

If she can get away

Paint her name on a one-way street

Painted cheeks with angry heat

Wounded pride on painted eyes

Paint the night with battle cries

All puffed up with vanity

We see what we want to see

To the beautiful and the wise

The mirror always lies

Boy before the mirror

Checks his camouflage

Polishes his armor

And the charger in the garage

No more lame excuses

It has to be tonight

He can take the princess

If he can take the fight

Pound the drums with martial beat

Pound the streets with marching feet

Wounded pride, distorted eyes

Paint the night with battle cries

All puffed up with vanity

We see what we want to see

To the powerful and the wise

The mirror always lies

Boys and girls together

Mistake conceit for pride

Ambition for illusion

Dreams for self-delusion

Girls and boys together

See what it is we lack

Boys and girls together

Let's paint the mirror black

Paint it black

......Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood

With his memories in a trunk

Passed this way an hour ago

With his friend, a jealous monk

He looked so immaculatelyfrightful

As he bummed a cigarette

Then he went off sniffing drainpipes And reciting the alphabet

You would not think to look at him

But he was famous long ago For playing the electric violin On DesolationRow......

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me"

She Belongs To Me

 ~Bob Dylan

(also performed by the First Gear, with Jimmy Page as a session guitarist)

"She's got everything she needs

she's an artist, she don't look back.

She's got everything she needs

she's an artist, she don't look back...

She never stumbles -got no place to fall.

She never stumbles -got no place to fall"

Just a small town girl

Livin' in a lonely world

She took the midnight train

Goin' anywhere

Just a city boy

Born and raised in South Detroit

He took the midnight train

Goin' anywhere

A singer in a smokey room

A smell of wine and cheap perfume

For a smile they can share the night

It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching

In the night

Streetlights, people

Livin' just to find emotion

Hidin', somewhere in the night

Workin' hard to get my fill

Everybody wants a thrill

Payin' anything to roll the dice

Just one more time

Some will win

Some will lose

Some were born to sing the blues

Oh, the movie never ends

It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting

Up and down the boulevard

Their shadows searching

In the night

Streetlights, people

Livin' just to find emotion

Hidin', somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'

Hold on to the feelin'

Streetlights, people

Don't stop believin'

Hold on

Streetlights, people

Down from the glen came the marching men With their shields and their swords To fight the fight theybelieved tobe right Overthrow the overlords

To the townwhere there was plenty They brought plunder, swords and flame When theyleftthe townwas empty Children would never play again

From their graves I heard the fallen Above the battle cry By that bridge near the border There were many more to die

Then onward over the mountain And outward towards the sea They had come to claim the Emerald Withoutittheycouldnot leave

Wish I was ocean size

They cannot move you

No one tries

No one pulls you

Out from your hole

Like a tooth aching a jawbone...

I was made with a heart of stone

To be broken with one hard blow

I've seen the ocean break on the shore

Come together with no harm done...

It ain't easy living...

I want to be ..........As deep .......As the ocean .....Mother ocean

Some people tell me home is in the sky

In the sky lives a spy

I want to be more like the ocean ......No talking All action... No talking All action...

"Peace Of Mind"

Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying

Future's coming much too slow

And you wanna run but somehow you just keep on stayin'

Can't decide on which way to go

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision

But I don't care if I get behind

People livin' in competition

All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder

Hope it doesn't take too long

Can'tcha you see there'll come a day when it won't matter

Come a day when you'll be gone

I understand about indecision

But I don't care if I get behind

People li vin' in competition

All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Now everybody's got advice they just keep on givin'

Doesn't mean too much to me

Lot's of people out to make-believe they're livin'

Can't decide who they should be.

I understand about indecision

But I don't care if I get behind

People li vin' in competition

All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. Look ahead.

I want to hold the hand inside you

I want to take a breath that's true

I look to you and I see nothing

I look to you to see the truth

You live your life....... You go in shadows

You'll come apart and you'll go black

Some kind of night into your darkness

Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you

Strange you never knew

Fade into you ..........I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly

A stranger's heart without a home

You put your hands into your head

And then it's smiles cover your heart

Fade into you ..........Strange you never knew .......Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

Somewhere a clock strikes midnight

And there's a full moon in the sky

You hear a dog bark in the distance

You hear someone's baby cry

A rat runs down the alley

And a chill runs down your spine

And someone walks across your grave

And you wish the sun would shine

Cause no one's gonna warn you

And no one's gonna yell 'Attack'

And you don't feel the steel

Till it's hanging out your back

I'm your Night Prowler, sleep in the day

I'm your Night Prowler, get out of my way

Look out for the Night Prowler, watch you tonight

I'm the Night Prowler, when you turn out the light ...

Too scared to turn your light out

'Cos there's something on your mind

Was that a noise outside your window?

What's that shadow on the blind?

As you lie there naked

Like a body in a tomb

Suspended animation

As I slip into your room

I'm your Night Prowler, sleep in the day

I'm your Night Prowler, get out of my way

Look out for the Night Prowler, watch you tonight

I'm the Night Prowler, when you turn out the light ...

I'm your Night Prowler, break down your door

I'm your Night Prowler, crawling 'cross your floor

I'm your Night Prowler, make a mess of you, yes I will

Night Prowler, and I am telling this to you

There ain't nothing you can do

I read the news today oh, boy

About a lucky man who made the grade

And though the news was rather sad

Well, I just had to laugh

I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car

He didn't notice that the lights had changed

A crowd of people stood and stared

They'd seen his face before

Nobody was really sure if he was from the house of lords

I saw a film today oh, boy

The English army had just won the war

A crowd of people turned away

But I just had to look

Having read the book

I'd love to turn you on.

Woke up, fell out of bed

Dragged a comb across my head

Found my way downstairs and drank a cup

And looking up, I noticed I was late

Found my coat and grabbed my hat

Made the bus in seconds flat

Found my way upstairs and had a smoke

And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today oh, boy

Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire

And though the holes were rather small

They had to count them all

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall

I'd love to turn you on

Sisters, brothers and the whities

Blacks and the crackers

Police and their backers

They're all political actors

Hurry ......People running from their worries

While the judge and the juries

Dictate the law that's partly flaw

Cat calling, love balling, fussing and cussing

Top billing now is killing

For peace no-one is willing ........Kind of make you get that feeling

Everybody smoke, smoke, smoke, smoke, smoke

Use the pill and the dope, dope, dope, dope, dope

Educated fools ........From uneducated schools

Pimping people is the rule ..........Polluted water in the pool

And Nixon talking about don't worry, worry, worry,

Worry ......He says don't worry, worry, worry, worry

He says don't worry, worry, worry, worry

He says don't worry, worry, worry, worry

But they don't know

There can be no show

And if there's a hell below ........We're all gonna go, go, go, go, go

Everybody's praying

And everybody's saying

But when come time to do

Everybody's laying

Just talking about don't worry, worry, worry, worry

They say don't worry, worry, worry, worry

They say don't worry, worry, worry, worry

They say don't worry, worry, worry, worry

drivin' faster in my car

falling farther from just what we are

smoke a cigarette and lie some more

these conversations kill

falling faster in my car

time to take her home

her dizzy head is conscience laden

time to take a ride

it leaves today no conversation

time to take her home

her dizzy head is conscience laden

time to wait too long

to wait too long

these conversations kill

to much walkin', shoes worn thin

too much trippin' and my soul's worn thin

time to catch a ride

it leaves today, her name is what it means

to much walkin', shoe's worn thin

"Sweet Emotion"

Talk about things and nobody cares

Wearing other things that nobody wears

Ya callin' my name, but I gotta make it clear

Can't say where I'm gonna be in a year.

Some sweat hog mama with a face like a gent

Said my get up and go musta got up & went.

You got good news but you're a real good liar

Cause backstage lover set your pants on fire.

Riff 8x, then sweet emotion
[2x]

Pulled into town in a police car

Your daddy said I took you just a little too far.

Tellin' other things, but your girlfriend lied

Can't catch me cause the rabbit done died.

Standin' in front just shakin' your ass.

Take you back stage you can drink from my glass.

Talk about something you can sure understand

Cause a month on the road and i'll be eatin' from your hand.

Shake dreams from your hair

My pretty child, my sweet one.

Choose the day and choose the sign of your day

The day's divinity First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon

Couples naked race down by it's quiet side

And we laugh like soft, mad children

Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy

The music and voices are all around us.

Choose they croon the Ancient Ones

The time has come again Choose now, they croon Beneath the moon

Beside an ancient lake

Enter again the sweet forest

Enter the hot dream ......Come with us......

......... Everything is broken up and dances.

saying "come on babe are you willing an able

come on over and play a hand or two with me"

five card stud aces high

two out of three and i say goodbye

quarter in my pocket and an empty bottle of beer

so i call the waitress over for another round

she said my credit card has been turned down

called out to the bouncer said get him out of here

it said liqour in the front poker in the rear

those were all the words i needed to hear

went inside and i laid the party down

there's a long legged blonde standing at the table

saying "come on babe are you willing an able

come on over and play a hand or two with me"

headed for the door she whispered in my ear

pick up your hat on your way outta here

look up at the sign now it was perfectly clear

it said liqour in the front poker in the rear

those were all the words i needed to hear

went inside and i laid the party down

there's a long legged blonde standing at the table

saying "come on babe are you willing an able

come on over and play a hand or two with me"

Bright light almost blinding,

Black night still there shining.

I can't stop keep on climbing,

Looking for what I knew.

Had a friend she once told me,

"You got a love, you ain't lonely."

Now she's gone and left me only,

Looking for what I knew.

I'm telling you now,

The greatest thing you ever can do now,

Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,

It's very easy just.

Met a man on the roadside crying,

Without a friend there's no denying.

You're incomplete there'll be no finding,

Looking for what you knew.

So anytime somebody needs you,

Don't let them down although it grieves you,

Someday you'll need someone like they do,

Looking for what you knew.

I'm telling you now,

The greatest thing you ever can do now,

Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now,

It's very easy just.

I'm horny all night long

You got me horny in the morning

And you know uh oh

I tried to call you

But I can't find the telephone

I sent a message through the internet

But it rejected

I wrote a letter and I sent it

But uh oh oh

The postage takes so long

So I got to sing this song

To let you know how I feel

What's the deal baby

I can't wait for you

And the things you make me do

My heart is ringing so I'm singing

This song for you

I'm horny, horny, horny, horny

So horny

I'm horny, horny, horny

I search from time to time

But I can't find my bedroom

Now I got so desperate that

I sent a rocket to the moon

In New York City, someone said

They saw you singing the blues

But it was a man from nowhere land

That looked like you

Now we'll keep searching' on

This feeling's much too strong

My heart is ringing and I'm

Singing this song for you

I'm horny, horny, horny, horny

So horny

I'm horny, horny, horny

So I got to sing this song

To let you know how I feel

What's the deal baby

I can't wait for you

And the things you make me do

My heart is ringing so I'm singing

This song for you

I'm horny, horny, horny, horny

Going 'round like bom, bom, bom

I'm the cat with the bass and drum

Going 'round like bom, bom, bom

What's grooving? I'm moving

I like your style of womping

How charming! Just a rapper

Load him up and eat that snapper

I want 16 pints of rum and then I go bom, bom

Going up in the dark of the night

And so I go ooh, ah-ah-ah-ah, I

I've brought a pie in my pocket

Pie in my pocket, an eye in my socket

You got life, you got style

You got nothing on my mind

But I'm so cool and I'm so groovy

When I go bom, bom, bom

You 'round like bom, bom, bom

I'm so cool and I'm so groovy

When I go bom, bom, bom

I'm the cat with the bass and drum

Going 'round like bom, bom, bom

Hear the rime of the Ancient Mariner

See his eye as he stops one of three

Mesmerises one of the wedding guests

Stay here and listen to the nightmares

of the Sea

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by

Caught by his spell and

the Mariner tells his tale.

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice

To a place where nobody's been

Through the snow fog flies on the albatross

Hailed in God's name,

hoping good luck it brings.

And the ship sails on, back to the North

Through the fog and ice and

the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen

His shipmates cry against what he's done

But when the fog clears, they justify him

And make themselves a part of the crime.

Sailing on and on and North across the sea

Sailing on and on and North 'till all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance

A terrible curse a thirst has begun

His shipmates blame bad luck on the Mariner

About his neck, the dead bird is hung.

And the curse goes on and on and on at sea

And the thirst goes on and on for them and me

"Day after day, day after day,

we stuck nor breath nor motion

As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean

Water, water everywhere and

all the boards did shrink

Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."

There, calls the mariner

there comes a ship over the line

But how can she sail with no wind

in her sails and no tide.

See... onward she comes

Onwards she nears, out of the sun

See... she has no crew

She has no life, wait but there's two

Death and she Life in Death,

they throw their dice for the crew

She wins the Mariner and he belongs to her now.

Then ... crew one by one

They drop down dead, two hundred men

She... She, Life in Death.

She lets him live, her chosen one.

"One after one by the star dogged moon,

too quick for groan or sigh

Each turned his face with a ghastly pang

and cursed me with his eye

Four times fifty living men

(and I heard nor sigh nor groan),

With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,

they dropped down one by one."

The curse it lives on in their eyes

The Mariner he wished he'd die

Along with the sea creatures

But they lived on, so did he.

And by the light of the moon

He prays for their beauty not doom

With heart he blesses them

God's creatures all of them too.

Then the spell starts to break

The albatross falls from his neck

Sinks down like lead into the Sea

Then down in falls comes the rain.

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen

See them stir and they start to rise

Bodies lifted by good spirits

None of them speak

and they're lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again

Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on.

Now the curse is finally lifted

And the Mariner sights his home

Spirits go from the long dead bodies

Form their own light and

the Mariner's left alone

And then a boat came sailing towards him

It was a joy he could not believe

The Pilot's boat, his son and the hermit

Penance of life will fall onto Him.

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea

And the hermit shrives the mariner of his sins

The Mariner's bound to tell of his story

To tell his tale wherever he goes

To teach God's word by his own example

That we must love all things that God made.

And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man

And the tale goes on and on and on.

I'm on the run, I kill to eat

I'm starving now, feeling dead on my feet

Going all the way, I'm natures beast

Do what I want and do as I please

Run - Fight - To breathe - It's tough

Now you see me now you don't

Break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man

And my blood is my own now

Don't care where the past was

I know where I'm going ...out!

If you kill me it's self defense

And if I kill ya' then I call it vengeance

Spit in your eye I will defy

You'll be afraid when I call out your name

Run - Fight - To breathe - It's gonna be tough

Now you see me now you don't

Break the walls I'm coming out

Not a prisoner I'm a free man

And my blood is my own now

Don't care where the past was

I know where I'm going

I'm not a number I'm a free man

Live my life where I want to

You'd better scratch me from your black book

Cause' I'll run rings around you

True hunting is over.

No herds to follow.

Without game, men prey on each other.

The family weakens by the bite we swallow...

True leaders gone,

Of land and people.

We choose no kin but adopted strangers.

The family weakens by the length we travel...
