Waysted - Save Your Prayers

WALLS FALL DOWN

You say I got to turn it down
That I could never keep up the pace
You say to take it easy
Easy? Babe, I ain’t got time to waste
Never listen to the losers
Do it my own way
I love it loud and loaded
And in the morning having hell to pay

I was brought round on another Waysted day
Touch down of another Waysted flight
Count down to another Waysted night

We make the walls fall down
Walls fall down
Whenever we’re in town
Walls fall down

You s-s-say you like to rock
Welcome to the show
We got the nerve to disturb the peace
We got fire in the hole
We don’t need a reason
Don’t need no holy cause
Just to tear this place apart
And leave it looking like the Jericho Wall

Brought round on another Waysted day
Touch down of another Waysted flight
Count down to another Waysted night

We make the walls fall down
Walls fall down
Whenever we’re in town
Walls fall down 



BLACK & BLUE

It seems to me that the world gets tougher as we go along
Every day, people talk and papers say
That there’s so much going wrong
Another soldier, another child
Another headline blinds my eyes
I know you’ve felt as if you were the only one
And I wonder if I had been there what would I have done?

A little piece of my heart
Feels like it’s torn apart
A little piece of my heart
Turns Black & Blue

Anna, what can I say?
I see you, I feel you
But you’re so far away

Complications setting in
More frustration than there’s ever been
The road you’re on never gives you a sign of what’s up ahead
Whenever midnight catches you stop and think again

A little piece of my heart
Feels like it’s torn apart
A little piece of my heart
Turns Black & Blue

Anna, what can I say?
I see you, I feel you
But you’re so far away
Anna, Anna, what can I do?
It’s so far, so hard
But you can see it through

Wide-eyed wonder little girl
Do you hide when you get stung
Such a shame, Fleur De Lys
Do you grow your thorns so young?

Hey little girl talk to me
When I see that
See that look in your eyes
It takes a piece of my heart

Sha-la-la   La-la-la



SINGING TO THE NIGHT

I am a fighter pushing to the top
Can't stand still, never stop
I am a rebel, look at me
I'm living out my own fantasy
Always outside, looking inside
Going my own way
Never break the silence
But I've got so much to say

I'm singing to the night
She is everything I need
She makes me feel all right
She shows me all my dreams
When I'm hiding in the light
I'm singing to the night
Singing to the night

I saw an emerald in my dreams
With no more pain and no more war
There was silence out in the fields
Brother to brother fight no more
I got no answer for an angry heart
I've got no one to help pull me through
But do your own pieces fall apart?
Do you know that feeling too?

Always outside, looking inside
Going my own way
Never break the silence
But I've got so much to say

I'm singing to the night
She is everything I need
She makes me feel all right
She shows me all my dreams
When I'm hiding in the light
I'm singing to the night
Singing to the night

When you're out on your own
Restless on the road
Just turn on your radio
I'll be there again like I was before
And you know you're never alone

I'm singing to the night
She is everything I need
She makes me feel all right
I'm singing to the night
She is everything I need
She makes me feel all right
She shows me all my dreams
When I'm hiding in the light
I'm singing to the night
Singing to the night
Singing to the night



HELL COMES HOME

Beware of model citizens
Somebody’s gonna take a fall
End of the line for killing time
No more backing up against the wall

Desperation in the land of plenty
Somebody has forced their hand
Brought down one time too many
They’re on the streets to make a stand

Coming full circle and round it goes
Where it’s gonna stop nobody knows

Hard times in the city of lights
When the innocent ones put up a fight
Hard times when there’s nothing to lose
Anybody could be paying dues
Cut and run
When hell comes home
Cut and run
When hell comes home

Moving up for the big one
Got a jump on the competition
Carrying a hand gun
Big surprise for the opposition

No judge, no jury
No time for idle hands
Just a six-gun fury
Justice is the hostage of the modern man

Caught up in the heartbeat of a modern age
No time for understanding
There’s only rage

Hard times in the city of lights
When the innocent ones put up a fight
Hard times when there’s nothing to lose
Anybody could be paying dues
Cut and run
When hell comes home
Cut and run
When hell comes home



HEROES DIE YOUNG
 
Still stealing scenes in faded blue jeans
He stands alone a face apart
A world away inside my heart and dreams
He was a hero to me, a hero to me
But heroes they bleed and heroes die

Never cared about his sensation
Living out the promise of "My Generation"
He would never know, some kind of hero
Like a shooting star leaves a fire trail
Reckless driver on the highway to hell
He's never looking back
But now he's faded to black
No regrets
No tears in your eyes
As he goes flashing by

Heroes die young
Heroes die young
Heroes die young
But they never fade away

Didn't look like much never talked to loud
Always took a stand and always stood there proud
Where we would never go
Some kind of hero
He was no favorite son riding a dark horse
There were no battles won
He didn't change the course of history
But he meant more to me
 
No regrets
No tears in your eyes
As he goes flashing by

Heroes die young
Heroes die young
Heroes die young
But they never fade away

Die young
Heroes die young
Heroes die young
But they never fade away
Die young
Heroes die young
Heroes die young
But they never fade away



HOW THE WEST WAS WON
 
On the news today they said we got something to fear
All the experts down at the bar and grill say
"It can't happen here"
Turn around, there's a few new faces here in town
Well sometimes I look and sometimes I wonder
Is that how the west was won?

Tear up the treaties and full speed ahead
Send ‘em packing out their own back doors
They need our help they just don't know it yet
So we'll convince them with some friendly force
Yeah, we'll take away the bread lines
Give them everything in double time
Show them where they've gone astray
Pushing poison on the natives
Cause we know what's best for them anyway

Well won't you tell me
Is that how the west was won?
Won't you tell me
Is that how the deal was done?
Won't you tell me
Is that how the west was won?

We dug in at the beaches and fell from the sky
Don't mind us dropping in this way
We're massed on your borders for a sightseeing trip
And if we like it here we just might stay
So misunderstood it's not equality we want
Its just complacency we're after
All you misguided slavers
Throw your wrenches in the works
And you'll live happily ever after
 
Well won't you tell me
Is that how the west was won?
Can't you tell me
Is that how the deal was done?
Somebody tell me
Is that what you do for fun?
Won’t you tell me
Is that how the west was won?

Won't you tell me
Is that how the west was won?
Won't you tell me
Is that how the west was won?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Is that how the west was won?
Somebody tell me
Is that how the west was won?



WILD NIGHT

5:01
Punching out the clock got to get myself out of here
I got what it takes if you got the place
Catch you in the parking lot
The boys are meeting me there

Burning rubber for
Another weekend war
Talking trash and kicking ass
We’re raising hell for sure

It’s a wild night
Another wild night
Until daylight
And there ain’t nobody heading for home

In full swing
Making time and dropping lines
On my latest dream come true
Try to win her over and I got her in a corner
Feeling my oats and I was feeling hers too

Crawling back for me
Pounding on the floor
Bottles breaking, walls are shaking
Making on hell of a noise

It’s a wild night
Another wild night
Until daylight
And there ain’t nobody heading for home
It’s a wild night
Another wild night
Until daylight
And there ain’t nobody heading for home

Game shows, videos, pillow talking Romeos
Indoor sports extraordinaire
Neighbors are complaining
Got the landlord on the case
Banging on the door say,
“What the hell is going on in there”?

Crawling back for me
Pounding on the floor
Bottles breaking, walls are shaking
Making on hell of a noise

It’s a wild night
Another wild night
Until daylight
And there ain’t nobody heading for home



OUT OF CONTROL

The man is evil
But he’s the evil you know
You gave him power
But it’s too much to hold
He’s got to have it all for himself
And methods don’t matter
Nor does anything else
I can use what doesn’t kill me
I can get what I need
I’m getting off on giving orders
And issuing decrees
But shotgun politics don’t work for sure
And it falls through his hands
As he reaches for more

Out of control: Another power play
Out of control: The game is underway
Out of control: Nothing gets in the way
Of another power play

It’s cloak and dagger
Some boys just do it for fun
Every shadow has an interest
Everybody’s got a gun
It’s all wine and dine secrecy
But there’s one small problem
For the powers that be
Some folks won’t bend and break
Just because they’ve been told
They rise up form the gutters
Taking aim and grabbing hold
Nobody’s sinking down the rivers they’ve been sold
Desperation, escalation
Now it’s out of control

Out of control: Another power play
Out of control: The game is underway
Out of control: Nothing gets in the way
Of another power play

One person’s crazy dream
One small, unfortunate scene
One bullet to change the world around me

Out of control: Another power play
Out of control: The game is underway
Out of control: Nothing gets in the way
Of another power play



SO LONG

Too young, I had always thought
Nothing ever changes
Friends held fast and never left your side
Didn’t think that I’d ever turn
So many pages
Or that the miles could grow so wide

So long, so long
We’ve played the final show
It’s too late, too late
It’s time for you to go

The world’s full of people on their own
For the first time we’ll be out on our own
We are alive

Echoes dancing all around
The places where we played
We gambled hearts and lost the roll
Lose the fight to the silence
And then just fade away
Just like your headlights down the road

So long, so long
We’ve played the final show
Don’t you know it’s too late, too late
It’s time for you to go
Fade away…



FIRE UNDER THE WHEELS

I get restless in the nighttime
I got full-tilt Indy dreams
When I get an itch to move
I strap into my streamlined machine

Jacked up rear suspension
Sounding baffles blown
Growling like an animal
That just can’t wait to be let go
You wanna let him go

Power pushing through the hood
White knuckles on the wheel
Yellow light adrenaline
Breathless and dying for the speed

Nobody catches me with
Fire under the wheels
Born to run and built for speed
Fire under the wheels
It’s what I want, what I need
Fire under the wheels

High voltage sound system
Windows sealed tight
Tape deck primed and loaded
Waiting to shatter the night

Pushing up the volume
Getting ready for the road
Fifteen speakers overhead
They’re bearing down to overload
There’s an overload

Heartbeat tripping hammers
Limit’s far behind
Breaking all the barriers
I’m out of sight and out of my mind

Nobody catches me with
Fire under the wheels
Born to run and built for speed
Fire under the wheels
It’s what I want; it’s what I need
Fire under the wheels

I’m evil like Kneival
Living in the passing lane
Racing my own headlights
And getting off on high octane
High octane

Hair trigger gearshift
I got as lead foot hammered down
Got the feel of flying
It’s like I’m never coming down
I’m never coming down

Black and white in hot pursuit
I’m looking for a straightaway
Laughing as I hit the flat
Red lights just fade away

Nobody catches me with
Fire under the wheels
Born to run and built for speed
Fire under the wheels
It’s what I want; it’s what I need
Fire under the wheels
