Track Name: I Wanna Be A Hero
What do I think? What do I feel?
Just stitch me up I want to heal,
I can't be tall, I'm a zero, but I wanna be strong...

I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be bold I should get cold
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be numb I should get dumb
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be these things but I cant
But I can still recant.

I cant think clear, I cant feel sure.
You nailed me down, start the torture,
I can't be cool, I'm a weirdo, but I wanna be strong...

I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be bold I should get cold
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be numb I should get dumb
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be these things but I cant
But I can still recant.

What do I think? What do I feel?
Just stitch me up I want to heal,
I can't be tall, I'm a zero, but I wanna be strong...

I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be bold I should get cold
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be numb I should get dumb
I wanna be a hero! I know! I should be these things but I cant
But I can still recant.

A HERO!

Track Name: Voodoo Doll
Went up to her apartment,
I did not want to get up in the compartment.
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
Woke up the very next morning,
I could not show I was in some state of mourning.
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.

Who's gonna use you through voodoo
Who ya gonna use through the voodoo
What ya gonna do to my voodoo doll

Who's gonna use you through voodoo
Who ya gonna use through the voodoo
What ya gonna do to my voodoo doll

Went right back to her apartment
She jump my bones right on the carpet
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
Woke up the very next morning
She blew my mind, I did not have any warning
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.

Who's gonna use you through voodoo
Who ya gonna use through the voodoo
What ya gonna do to my voodoo doll

Who's gonna use you through voodoo
Who ya gonna use through the voodoo
What ya gonna do to my voodoo doll

HEY HEY HEY! HEY HEY HEY! HEY HEY HEY!

She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
She's got my voodoo doll, she's got my voodoo doll.
She's got my voodoo doll.
Track Name: 49th and Asbury
If I could I'd hit rewind, I'd hit repeat,
You know this time that I wouldn't miss a beat
And if I could you know I would
Be back in those times during childhood, you know I would but...

Days and days and weeks and weeks
and months and months and years go past
Where did you go? Where did you go?
Days and days and weeks and weeks
and months and months and years go past
Where did you go? Where did you go?

Ocean City out in the sun,
I know where you are! I know where you are!
Back to the days when you were young,
I know where you are! I know where you are!

I wish I knew that it would go so fast,
Back in the past it felt so slow,
Looking ahead I just cant believe,
I'm spending the time without you here!

Days and days and weeks and weeks
and months and months and years go past
Where did you go? Where did you go?
Days and days and weeks and weeks
and months and months and years go past
Where did you go? Where did you go?

Ocean City out in the sun,
I know where you are! I know where you are!
Back to the days when you were young,
I know where you are! I know where you are!

Ocean City out in the sun,
I know where you are!
Back to the days when you were young,
I know where you are! I know where you are!
Track Name: Please Take My Eyes
I'm gonna rip out both my eyes for the sockets in your head
So you will finally believe all those times I said
Whenever I would look at you, I'd see the perfect balance of
Diversity and unity, the symmetry of love.

It kills me the way you see yourself
When I never met anybody else
Who shines through like angelic light
A cosmic bliss, I wish you had my sight...
Please take my eyes!

I wish that I could make you stay,
Before you leave please take from me
My two eyes so you realize what sights I used to see
Whenever I would look at you, I'd see the perfect balance of
Diversity and unity, the symmetry of love.

It kills me the way you see yourself
When I never met anybody else
Who shines through like angelic light
A cosmic bliss, I wish you had my sight...
Please take my eyes!

It kills me the way you see yourself
When I never met anybody else
Who shines through like angelic light
A cosmic bliss, I wish you had my sight...

Please take my eyes! Please take my eyes!
Please take my eyes! I don't need them anymore...
Please take my eyes! Please take my eyes!
Please take my eyes! I don't need them anymore...
Please take my eyes!
Track Name: Tough Love
Staying up late making too much noise
Staying up late with the girls and boys
No need to be shy, no time to be coy
Your heart nearly dropped when she sang, Oi! Oi!

You never had luck with all the other types
They got nothing to say but they always wanna fight
Then she bought you a beer and she bought you a shot
She grabbed ya by the balls to see what you got

She's tough! She's rough! She's tough!
Rough and tough woman tough loving you, yeah!

Staying up late making too much noise
Staying up late with the girls and boys
Then she rolled up a jay and she started to toke
She blew you a kiss in a cloud of smoke

She's tough! She's rough! She's tough!
Rough and tough woman tough loving you!
She's tough! She's rough! She's tough!
Rough and tough woman tough loving you, yeah!
Track Name: Exorcise Your Feet
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!

If god is in your palms then the devil's in your feet
Making music with your hands as your feet tap to the beat
If Abraham would show that Isaac would not go
And if that holy trinity is anything like me...

You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!

All the women at our shows the devil surely knows
Or at least he will know soon
There's something I confess, their feet he will possess
As they scream out...
Sha na na na na na na na na na na na na na...

Sha na na na na na na na na na na na na na,
Sha na na na na na na na na na na na na na,
Sha na na na na na na na na na na na na na,
Sha na na na!!!

You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got to exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes!
You've got to exorcise your feet!

Exorcise your feet! Exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes,
You've got to exorcise your feet!
Exorcise your feet! Exorcise your feet!
You've got the devil in your shoes,
You've got to exorcise your feet!
Track Name: Peter Criss
The courtship has been killed right when
There's simply no more music left
You spelled out every detail too
It made me question my thoughts of you

The courtship has been killed right when
There's simply no more magic left
You took down every single thing
It made me question everything

You take down everyone else, you never look at yourself.
You take down everyone else, you never look at yourself.
You take down everyone else, you never look at yourself.
You take down everyone else, you never look at yourself.
You take down everyone else! You never look at yourself!
You take down everyone else! You never look at yourself!
You take down everyone else! You never look at yourself!
You take down everyone else! You take down everyone else!
Track Name: YOLT!
Here I sit, in frequent fascination.
Cuz I can't quit, constant contemplation.

You! You! You better play nice! Don't you know?
You only live twice!

There you sit, in self justification.
Cuz you can't quit, suffering sensation.

You! You! You better play nice! Don't you know?
You only live twice!
You! You! You act like a dunce! Don't you know?
You don't live once!

Here I sit, infrequent fascination
Cause I can quit, constant contemplation

You! You! You better play nice! Don't you know?
You only live twice!
You! You! You act like a dunce! Don't you know?
You don't live once!
