STEAMROCK FEVER

Musik:
Rudolf Schenker
Text:
Klaus Meine
We´d like to introduce tonight
the Kings of a brandnew style
they are hungry to play
we´d like to introduce tonight
the new heavy steam rock style
quite different and strange

Allright, how do you feel tonight
get up to see and cry the name of the
band

steam right with hands and feet tonight
get up to see and cry and they will begin -
Here they are!

Steam rock fever,
 screaming rock believers
Steamrock fever in L.A.

WE´LL BURN THE SKY

Musik:
Rudolf Schenker
Text:
Monika Dannemann
I´m in love with the sunshine
I´m in love with the falling rain
everything seems to call your name
yesterday you were leaving
 leaving life and all the pain
 everything wants you back again.

I´ve found myself through you
and there was love in my life
 I felt always naturally high and my love had a home
but now my mind has started to roam
you´re my life giving fire and you carried all my love
through you I was so inspired
you´re engraved deep in my heart

My dreams recall us being one
I´ve searched for you to be free
my force of life you have always been
 I Feel blue since you´ve gone
 your breath of love surrounded me
 when can I rejoin you to be free

Wait, can this be a dream
there is a voice in my head
 it belongs to you, it say´s
don´t cry, no need to be sad
 there´s a way to stay with you again
it´s more than you ever had
and no death brings us apart
our timeless love always grows
 because you are in my other heart

I know we´ve never been apart
 your love sets fire to my heart
 we´ll burn the sky
when it´s time for me to die
we´ll burn the sky...

I´VE GOT TO BE FREE

Musik:
Uli Jon Roth
Text:
Uli Jon Roth
You´re burning my heart
 you´re burning my mind
you´re spoiling my art
 you´re wasting my time

No taste in your actions
no taste in your line
 no truth or direction
 no true love of mine

You say you wanna be a superstar
don´t give a damn how to get that far
you say you wanna ride a diamond car
but I don´t like your fat cigar.

Hey, hey, hey don´t you wanna see
I´m not your stepping stone
hey, hey, hey I´ve got to be free
so leave my life alone

You´re in love with success
you´re spilling my wine
don´t follow my tracks, babe
you ways are not mine

Your main god is money
you´re wasting my life
I´m not your Bugs Bunny
and you´re not my wife

You say you only do it for our best
but you don´t wanna see what I detest
you think me crack-brained
that I´m gonna leave your show
but you can´t see what I see
so let me go.

THE RIOT OF YOUR TIME

Musik:
Rudolf Schenker
Text:
Klaus Meine
The only king of rock has gone gone to heaven
a star on the way to the stars
another king of rock is born, ´77
just born to be there, when it starts

´94,´95, if the world is still alive
will be the start, for the riot of your time
here´s a ticket for a burning train
to set the world in flame
to play the hero game
here´s a ticket for the future days
you´ll be the x•rock king
 the new electric face
a new generations mind
 the riot of your time

He´s got the message to be more,
 a new desire
a storm full of life, wild and young
 "the x-rock 1994 electric fire"
will burn out the time, like the sun

THE SAIL OF CHARON

Musik:
Uli Jon Roth
Text:
Uli Jon Roth
Dark night! There is no light
in the realm of the black magic man
Souls flight into the cold blight
of the destroyers magic land
Poor man! Those spirits are stronger
 there the one´s who will reign
 your strugglings are in vain
Blind man! You´re sucking your own blood
soon black magic´s dying
you´d better start crying
 Burn out! Your evil desire
 the dark Angels Kingdom
 is built out of mine.
Keep on! For the Kingdom of light
 there is no darkness
and there is no night.

YOUR LIGHT

Musik:
Uli Jon Roth
Text:
Uli Jon Roth
When you´re feeling lost and blue
when there is no love for you
you´ll find him and it´s allright, allright.

When you´re feeling down and low
when you´ve got no place to go
and when none smiles "hello"
he´s by your side, you know

When you´re getting deaf and blind
when you draw one leg behind
and when you finally gonna lose your mind
it´s allright, allright

´cos he is by your side
´cos he will be your guide
´cos he will be your light
and you´re not alone.

HE´S A WOMAN - SHE´S A MAN

Musik:
Rudolf Schenker
Text:
Klaus Meine, Herman Rarebell
I saw it walking lonely down the street
cool like a cat and like a crazy dream
I´m looking twice again and can´t believe
it turned around and then it looked at me
I thought "oh, no" it really couldn´t be
it was a man and was a woman too
he´s a woman
she´s a man

I think it really came from far away
I´m feeling hypnotised, I have to stay
it takes my hand and says come on let´s go
we´re going home there´s nothing more to say
he starts to move she starts to play
I need a body, why not you?
he´s a woman
she´s a man

BORN TO TOUCH YOUR FEELINGS

Musik:
Rudolf Schenker
Text:
Klaus Meine
I was born from the sound oft he strings
for someone to give everything
to be a song just for your feeling
 close your eyes and I´ll try to get in
 to waken your heart like the spring
´cos I was born to touch your feelings

Steal the time, take a song and be glad
be free as the birds, don´t be sad
your time will come. I´ll make you feel it
 you´re still young like the sun after rain
 follow the light, it´s not in vain
 and you will see I´ll touch your feelings.

You´ve got your songs, they are everyday
 for a while, just the only way
to feel allright...

You were born just to lose or to win
to be someone´s child in the wind
to live between your mind and feelings
 find your way, check it out, learn each day
 follow the light , it´s not in vain
 and you will see I´ll touch your feelings.

You´ve got your songs, they are everyday
for a while. just the only way
to feel allright ...

POLAR NIGHTS

Musik:
Uli Jon Roth
Text:
Uli Jon Roth
Down, down ...
That´s bringing me down
The stars in the sky
Seem to fall to the ground.
Time, time ...
I´m chasing the time
The stars in the sky
Seem to be turning round.
Is that the wind in your eyes
That is soothing my mind?
Is that the night of your eyes
That is soothing my mind?

Round, round ...
My mind´s whirling round
The moons in the sky
Seem to burn on the ground.
Gone, gone ...
My mightmares are gone
The moons in the sky
Seemed to eat up the sun.
Is that the wind in your eyes
That is soothing my mind?
Is that the night in your eyes
That is soothing my mind?
Back from polar nights ...

I was down ...
I was out ...
The nights at the pole´ve been
So cold without you!
I was down ...
I was out ...
The pole-star was bringing me
Back home to you.
Is that the wind in your eyes
That is soothing my mind?
Is that the night in your eyes
That is soothing my mind?
