Track Name: Rockin' Devil
His hair shot out like molten straw
Had a big ol’ buckle strap on a boot from the civil war
All the little girls from school would hit the floor
When he spoke with a zealous grin from his jumpin’ jaw

That Rockin’ Devil surely knows
He’s gonna get a rise

He’d light up the stage with some moves you can’t ignore
And in a few minutes the crowd would slide back to the door
But on the street when they heard that barkin’ from afar
They’d watch from a distance with the door ajar

With cameras drawn quick as guns in a rebels draw
They started to move their hips in a way that begged for more
He came out from the dark just to spread the truth
But however it happened, they started to move . . . that’s for sure

That Rockin’ Devil surely knows
He’s gonna get a rise
That Rockin’ Devil surely knows
It ain’t no surprise

Now whatever he brought around it was bulletproof
Cause it got real ugly when those tough guys started to shoot

They waited for all they’re claimed girls to gather round’
They looked him up and down and said “what’s that about?”
But to shut em' up fast that Rockin’ Devil never had to shout
He hit em’ up with that vicious grin, and they were out

That Rockin’ Devil surely knows
He’s gonna get a rise
That Rockin’ Devil surely knows
There ain’t no surprise . . . so watch out now
(Jump jegga doom now now now, hey)
He’s gonna get a rise . . . so watch out now
Track Name: (Thief of the) Midnight Sun
No love can fill a void
With no end to find
A thief will rob you blind
Til’ you say goodbye
All consequences fade
With the gold in sight
Old words are all less real
When the spirit dies

You took the spirit for your own
And flew straight into the sun
We really had them on the run
Good luck you Thief of the Midnight Sun

Their spoils all denied
By emptiness
Now reason tries to find
The rest in a widow’s mind
And can you free someone
From the jaws of denial?
No sense in wandering the past
The future will find yesterday

You took the spirit for your own
And flew straight into the sun
We really had them on the run
Good luck you Thief of the Midnight Sun
Track Name: Crickets Dance
They’re face to face brows tight
But the mood of the night light
They all know about the joke in them
But shudder through the cold wind

A sad view but we made do
Miles and miles in the shade blue
In a mask of a love muse
Was a hand with a king noose

And as the echos frown
There’s a lonely sound and so it goes
And in the mourning sun
We’ll paint the ground oh, a town of gold

Idol words won’t find right
And made real through a fools sight
The crickets scream and shout the past dead
Natures got them surrounded

And as the echos frown
There’s a lonely sound and, so it goes
And in the mourning sun
We’ll paint the ground oh, a town of gold

When I hear the rivers dancin’
It’s all full of chances and harmony
And in the morning sun
We’ll all be dancers in our sleep

Oh . . . the Crickets Dance
Last chance to make amends
Oh . . . the Crickets Dance
In a fate full of unseen plans . . .
And misguided hands
Track Name: End of the Band
Those strangers have been talkin’ got a lot to say
That the songs don’t make my day or pay my way
And in time those other girls might hear that tune
So soon I’ll let you know who makes the rules

When I think of the band
Were they enemies or were they friends?

It’s the end of the band
(Everyone join hands)
(Get with the plans)
Now you’ll get on with the life that they’ve been dreamin’ about
(for years)
Everyone’s happy when the band’s in tears
(Friends learn to dance)
They give advice
And trivialize those who roll the dice . . .
It’s the End of the Band . . . Oh no, you know . . . I told you so . . .

So tell me bout’ all of this, how it ain’t real
And I know how you really feel, it’s just a game
But you know you’re really really not one to say
Cause’ real life’s watching your dreams getting tamed and fading away

But mama don’t want me running around all over the streets of Beijing
And honey don’t want me messin’ around sayin’ hey mama to the girls on the street

It’s the end of the band
(Everyone join hands)
(Get on with the plans)
Now you’ll get on with the life that they’ve been dreamin’ about
(for years)
Everyone’s happy when the band’s in tears
(Friends learn to dance)
They give advice
And trivialize those who roll the dice . . . It’s the End of the Band

And mama don’t want me jumpin’ around
And honey don’t want me messin’ around
It’s the End of the Band . . . Oh no, you know, I told you so
