ELEVEN EVEN LYRICS

D TRAIN     (D. ROTER)

Take the D Train, D Train, D Train, D Train!

I saw a man with a handkerchief on his face

He said his nose had been stolen 

by some thieves from outer space

He fell to his knees and began to cry

Please don’t let them take my eyes

On a D Train  to Brooklyn A D Train to Brooklyn

 

See that woman with the red dress on

She gonna ride that train all night long

She got somewhere to go but she don’t know when 

She’s going to Brighton Beach and back again

 

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

That’s a D Train to Brooklyn

 

Wheels are screeching, heads are turning

It smells like a fire but nothing is burning.

All those bodies moving with the heat

Way down below the street.

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

That’s a D Train to Brooklyn

 

Guardian angel, hooker, priest

Black muslim, puerto rican, transit police

A gimp and a blind man with a dog who could see

1000 other faces like you…and me

 

D Train  to Brooklyn

On the D Train to Brooklyn

 

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

Ridin a D Train  to Brooklyn

(All night long)

On a D Train  to Brooklyn

Ride, ride, ride

D Train  to Brooklyn

Ride the D Train

D Train

to Brooklyn

 

HEY SHERIFF    (A BOUCHARD, M. BARKAN)

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Something was going down wrong

Set me free

It was a game we all played along

Set me free

Someone said something and then a shot

Set me free

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Some guy had a piece in his hand

Set me free

It wasn’t me you understand

Set me free

There was another guy on the floor

Set me free

And a whole lot of blood and gore

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me

Cause you know it wasn’t my gun

Me and my boys were having fun

 

Set me free

Sometimes life gotta be that way

Set me free

Sometimes you lose and you gotta pay

Set me free

A reflex, a sneeze or a cough

Set me free

The bad happens when you piss someone off

 

Hey Sheriff you ain’t got nothin on me   WHOA NO!

 

KEEP ROLLIN' ON  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

Ah, well, the whole wide world has gone insane

The wheels are flyin’ off this crazy train

Everybody swingin’ atcha left and right

Like a barroom brawl in a hurricane

 

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

Big bad bullies, Big bad bullies try to rage your mind

Put you down try to waste your time.

Cherish every moment in this hard knock life

It all adds up at the finish line.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

 

If you're stuck I got your back

When I'm broke you bring me luck

 

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

Rats from space out to steal your name

Spend your cash cause you pain.

Rise on up, keep your eye on the sky

Win, win, win the human game.

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

 

if you fall I'll help you land

If I'm down you lend a hand

 

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches.

You gotta roll, roll, roll, roll with the punches. 

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

Left, Right, Roll with the Punches

 

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

If you fall I’ll pick you up

If I’m low you lend a hand

Ya gotta Roll Roll Roll

Roll Roll Roll with the punches

Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on, Keep rollin’ on

 

TANK MAN  (J. BOUCHARD)

 

A column of tanks

Rolled toward the plaza

Man carrying shopping bags

Stepped in front of the war machines

Waving his arms

And refusing to move.

He became a symbol 

of resistance

Against the unjust 

everywhere

 

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back

 

Tiananmen Square was the place 

Where Davey stood down the Philistines

He had all that he could take.

Coming apart at the seams.

He became a symbol 

of resistance

Against the unjust 

everywhere

 

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back  SOLO

 

Tank Man   Superhero

From a grainy photograph

Tank Man   Superhero

He took a stand 

With no looking back.

 

RENDEZVOUS IN THE PALE MOONLIGHT  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

Under the moon I hear her call my name

Across the boundaries of another time

I see her eyes lookin’ for me

And in the parlor of an ancient dream

I feel her gentle breath upon my face

My destiny is not what it seems

 

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

Runnin’ through the valley the cold cement alley

Through the wind in the night

Through the image in the back of my mind

Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight

 

I’ve known her voice for a thousand years

I’ve heard her footsteps through a million hallways

Singing high like a bird on a wire

Of all the lovers who have come and gone

She is the one who calls eternally

Slipping away her secret desire

 

I’m comin’ home

I’m comin’ home

Runnin’ through the valley, the cold cement alley

Through the wind in the night

Through the image in the back of my mind

Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight

 

I’m comin’ home

Running through the night

I’m comin’ home

Rendezvous (Rendezvous) in Pale Moonlight 

(Rendezvous in Pale Moonlight...repeat and fade)

 

BREAK THROUGH THE WALL  (J. SHIRLEY, J.BOUCHARD)

 

I race through the streets

I push through a door

I pound up the stairs

Through blood run across the next floor.

I come to a gate,

But I bust on through

We push through a window

both me and you

 

chorus:

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, no

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go. (AND WE’RE READY...)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go. (Oh, Oh, Oh...)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

 

Gotta cross the frozen river

I fall through the thin ice

I’m turning blue down there

But I’m up in a trice

I kick my way through a door 

And I race down the hall

Nothing will stop me 

As long as I hear you call

 

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, nowhoa]

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go--

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

SOLO

 

Every time I come to something that stops us [whoa]

Every time something tries to say no, no, no, no [whoa]

Every time I come to something that stops us

I break through the wall and we’re ready to go. (AND WE’RE READY... bv’s)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go. (Oh, Oh, Oh...asides)

I break through the wall--and we’re ready to go

HEAR ME TALKIN NOW

WE GOTTA MAKE IT

YEAH, READY NOW!

YEAH YEAH YEAH BREAK IT ALL THE WAY!

 

BLOOD FOR BLOOD  (A. BOUCHARD, K. VARGAS, D. DUNAWAY)

 

Blood for blood

Anger feeds rage

Revenge breaks out

From its hateful cage

Fire burns hotter

Violence in the wind

Out of control

And many lives will end

 

Chorus:

Hate fuels hate

Death and despair

Cursing hearts

A cross to bear

Trapped in passion

Inflicting pain

Poisoned emotions

Stalks the land. (8 beats)

Blood for Blood 3x Huh!

 

We all want peace

We want a life of ease

But deep down we are

Our own worst enemies

The evil inside us

Is hidden away

Locked in our dark souls

Where it must stay

 

Chorus (repeat above)

SOLO

Bridge

Written in the stars

Since the dawn of man

A universal love

A higher kind of plan

We can rise above

Our better selves must shine

Let the goodness flow

For you and yours and mine

We all want peace 

We want a life of ease

But remember deep down

We are our own worst enemies

 

Blood for Blood

Comes an ancient reign

An eye for an eye

Makes our world insane

Hate fuels hate

Conditioning fears

Killing your spirit

Sadness and tears

   

Hate fuels hate

Death and despair

Cursing hearts

A cross to bear

Trapped in passion

Inflicting the pain

Poisoned emotions

Stalks the land

Blood for Blood

 

SIMPLE ANSWERS KILL  (J. SHIRLEY, J. BOUCHARD)

 

Abdul lives on my street

we stop and talk about work

We both got some  funny beliefs

human life sho is  fulla quirks

there’s a guy who hid on a ship

now he lives with his folks, in Queens

He had to hide, just to get here

but doin nothin leads to nothin

and this guy’s got dreams

his guy’s got dreams

 

Simple answers kill

Simple answers may eat you alive

Simple answers will throw you DOWN

A long, spiral dive

Simple answers kill, until

We learn to ask another question

Simple answers kill, 

Life’s a complex invention.

 

I was at office work,

they said Manuel just had to go

the real truth lurks, it hides,

till finally we know

everyone’s an arrow fired from their mama 

one fateful day

people don’t care to know

where it lands,or if it stays

Or if it stays

 

Simple answers kill

Simple answers may eat you alive

Simple answers will throw you DOWN

A long, spiral dive

Simple answers kill, until

We learn to ask another question

Simple answers kill, 

Life’s a complex invention.

Life’s a fucked up invention

Life’s a fucked up invention

 

DAY AFTER DAY (RUNNING AWAY)   (D.DUNAWAY)

 

I am yours, are you mine?

Or are we just killin’ precious time?

We’re livin’ on a fault line runnin’ away.

Though it cuts like a knife

You've got to tell him it’s your life

None of us can survive livin' this way.

Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day  runnin' away (runnin' away)

 

You’re so hot, he’s stone cold

He’s got you locked in his stronghold

I’m tired of lookin’ through the keyhole down on my knees.

I’ll back you up, I’ll see you through

One plus one plus one will never do

This can be his waterloo I’ll take you away.

 

Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day runnin' away (runnin' away)
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day runnin' away (runnin' away)         SOLO

 

Let's have no more, Lets have no more, 

Let's have no more runnin' away.

No runnin,  no runnin

No runnin, no runnin, no runnin'

No runnin away.

Day After Day (no runnin')

Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day no runnin' away (no runnin' away)
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day (no runnin')
Day After Day no runnin' away

Noooo...no runnin’ away

Noooo...no runnin’ away

No runnin’ away!

 

BITTER GAME  (A. BOUCHARD, D.DUNAWAY)

 

She appears out of nowhere 

From an invisible trail 

She's got a million stories 

She never ever tell

Her face pale as a tombstone 

Her eyes concealing a frown 

Spinning lies of distraction 

As she remains under ground.

 

Bitter Game, Bitter Game 

She's playing her Bitter Game

 

Winning your trust with her graces 

Flashing intimate smiles 

While she shoots secret photos 

And peeks at your files

She gains all her riches 

Stealing name after name 

That's why she's after you 

Zero guilt zero shame

 

Chorus

 

All her pills are to die for

Get your world spinning 'round 

You'll be flying so high 

Then come crashing down 

And while you are sleeping 

Without a gun or a knife 

Through your muffled pillow 

You'll cry for your life

 

Chorus 

 

(Bitter Game)

Then she'll smile at her victim 

Without any shame

No room for mercy

In her bitter game

 

JUMPED THE GUN  (D. DUNAWAY)

 

When i was young

Full of rage

Lookin for fame 

On a killer stage

Heard her yell

Loud as Hell

Callin’ my name when the curtain fell

 

Rock and roll

Killer show

Saw the girl in the second row

Backstage door

She followed me in

Pulled me in the dressing room with a big grin

Moved too fast she was out of control

First base, second base, lock and load

Pressure Cooker boiling I had to explode

 

And i JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me goin' and I jumped the gun

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me goin' and I jumped the gun

 

Sorry girl I dropped the ball

But would you mind if I give you a call

She said that’s ok that’s alright

You’ll get another chance later 

to-night

 

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me goin' and I jumped the gun

JUMPED THE GUN

JUMPED THE GUN

She got me goin' and I jumped the gun

Party just started I was already done
