BOC LYRICS official lyrics from the E.T.L. album CITIES ON FLAME By Samuel Pearlman, Donald Roeser, Albert Bouchard My heart is black And my lips are cold Cities on flame with Rock and roll Three thousand guitars They seem to cry My ears will melt And then my eyes CHORUS: So let the girl, let that girl Rock and roll Cities on flame now with Rock and roll Gardens of nocturne Forbidden delights Reigns of steel And it's alright Cities on flame with Rock and roll Marshall will buoy But fender control (REPEAT CHORUS) (DON'T FEAR) THE REAPER By Donald Roeser All our times have come Here but now they're gone Seasons don't fear the reaper Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain And we can be like they are (Come on baby) Don't fear the reaper (Baby take my hand) Don't fear the reaper (We'll be able to fly) Don't fear the reaper (Baby, I'm your man) Valentine is done Here but now they're gone Romeo and Juliet Are together in eternity Romeo and Juliet (40,000 men and woman every day) Like Romeo and Juliet (40,000 men and woman every day) Redifine happiness (Another 40,000 comin' every day) And we can be like they are (Come on baby) Don't fear the reaper (Baby take my hand) Don't fear the reaper (We'll be able to fly) Don't fear the reaper (Baby, I'm your man) Love of two is one Here but now they're gone Came the last night of sadness And it was clear She couldn't go on then The door was open And the wind appeared The candles blew And then disappeared The curtains flew And he appeared (Saying don't be afraid) Come on baby (And she had no fear) And she ran to him (Then they startet to fly) They looked backward And said goodbye She had become like they are (She had taken his hand) She had become like they are (Come on baby) Don't fear the reaper E.T.I. (EXTRA TERRESTRIAL INTELLIGENCE) By Donald Roeser, Samuel Pearlman I hear music daylight disc 3 men in black said "Don't report this" "Ascension" And that's all they said Sickness now the hours dread All praise, he's found The awful truth Balthazar, He's found the saucer news I'm in fairy rings and tower beds "Don't report this" 3 men said Books by blameless and the dead King in yellow, Queen in red All praise, he's found the awful truth Balthazar, he's found the saucer news Dead leaves always Give up motion I no longer feel emotions When prophecy fails The falling motion "Don't report this, Agents of fortune." All praise, he's found The awful truth, Balthazar, He's found the saucer news. GODZILLA By Donald Roeser With a purposeful grimace And a terrible sound He pulls the spitting High tension wires down Helpless people on a subway train Scream bug-eyed as He looks in on them He picks up a bus And he throws it back down As he wades through the buildings Towards the center of town Oh. no, they say he's got To go, go ,go, Godzilla Oh, no, there goes Tokyo Go, go Godzilla History shows Again and again How nature points up The folly of men BLACK BLADE By Eric Bloom, Michael Moorcock, John Trivers I have this feeling that my luck Is none too good There are ruins in my past There are ruins in my destiny And this sword here at my side Don't act the way it should Keeps calling me its master, But I feel like its slave Hauling me faster and faster To an early, early grave And it howls-Oh, it howls Like Hell... Well, I'm told it's my duty to Fight against the Law That there's freedom in My blade And that wizardry's my trade. And that I was born to wade Through gore... I just want to be a lover Not a red-eyed screaming ghoul I wish It'd picked another To be its killing tool And its cosmic song-it Goes on too long. Black blade! Black blade! Forged a million billion years ago Black blade! Black blade! Killing so its power Can grow and grow Black blade! Black blade! Brings Chaos to the World we know And it's using me to Kill my friends Getting stronger so the World will end Forcing my mind to bend And bend and bend It's the evilest weapon That ever was made Black blade! Black blade! Singing for eternity Black blade! Black blade! Carving out my destiny Bringing in the Lords of Chaos Bringing up the Beasts of Hades Sucking out the souls oh heroes Laying waste to Knights And Ladies There is Death from the Beginning to the End of Time Death in the flames The Earth, the Sky, the Sea And I am the Cosmic Champion And I hold the Mystic Sign And the whole world's dying And the burden's mine And the black sword keeps on Killing 'til the end of time Doesn't care if I am willing And it's howling, howling, howling -Howling like Hell... Black blade, etc. BURNIN' FOR YOU By Donald Roeser, Richard Meltzer Home in the valley, home in the city Home isn't pretty. Ain't no home for me Home in the darkness, home on the highway Home isn't my way, home I'll never be Burn out the day. burn out the night I can't see no reason to put up a fight I'm living for givin' the devil his due And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you (Repeat) Time is the essence, time is the season Time ain't no reason, got no time to slow Time everlasting, time to play B sides Time ain't on my side, time I'll never know Burn out the day, burn out the night I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong and what's right I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you (Repeat) JOAN CRAWFORD By Albert Bouchard, David Roter, Jack Rigg Junkies down in Brooklyn are going crazy They laughing just like hungry dogs in the street Policemen are hiding behind the skirts of little girls Their eyes have turned the color of frozen meat CHORUS: No,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no Joan Crawford has risen from the grave (Repeat) Catholic school girls have thrown away their mascara They chain themselves to the axles of big Mac trucks The sky is filled with herds of shivering angels The fat lady laughs "Gentlemen, start your trucks" Oh no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no,no Joan Crawford has risen from the grave (Repeat) Christina, mother's home, Christina come to mother, Christina (REPEAT CHORUS) VETERAN OF THE PSYCHIC WARS By Eric Bloom, Michael Moorcock You see me now, a veteran of a thousand psychic wars I've been living on the edge so long Where the winds of limbo roar And I'm young enough to look at And far to old to see; All the scars are on the inside And I'm not sure if there's anything left of me. CHORUS: Don't let these shakes go on It's time we had a break from it It's time we had some leave We've been living in the flames We've been eating up our brains Oh, please don't let these shakes go on You ask me why I'm weary Why I can't speak to you You blame me for my silence Say it's time I changed and grew But the war's still going on dear, And there's no end that I know And I can't say if we're ever, ever gonna be free (CHORUS) (GUITAR SOLO) You see me now, a vetaran of a thousand psychic wars My energy is spent at last And my armor is destroyed I have used up all my weapons And I'm helpless and bereaved Wounds are all I'm made of And did I hear you say that this is victory ? CHORUS: Don't let these shakes go on It's time we had a break from it Send me to the rear Where the tides of madness swell And been sliding into hell Oh, please don't let these shakes go on Don't let these shakes go on
