INTO THE NIGHT - Russ Ballard

Produced by Eddie Kramer and Ace Frehley

Assistant Production by John Regan & Tod Howarth

Two A.M. on a downtown street
There on a corner two strangers meet, in the night
And then until the daybreak
They're gonna love and before and light,
A heart may break, there in the night

Look in the alleys along the roads
It's there the losers stand,
There in the ring they bide their time
Hustling what they can
They beg just to get
That bottle in their hand

CHORUS:

There in the night
Somewhere in the night
Oh how they do what they do
Just to get through
There in the night ... in the night

Then on the street in the heart of town
A lady in black she turns around, in the night, yeah
She stares at the man in the Cadillac
He drives by but he'll be back ... for the night
There in the night

See the guy along the road
Who can he be?
Wait awhile he'll turn around
See the man is me
'Cause when I sing my dream ...
My dreams will set me free

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

When the sun goes down
And the light grows dim
Slowly move in for the kill
If you would come back again
It would take away this pain
But I don't know if you ever will

Love in the night
Would feel so right
So love me tonight .. in the night

CHORUS

WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH - Ace Frehley, Jimmy Keneally

Can't stop tossin' and turnin' at night
It gets harder each day, fighting with this feeling inside

You can swear that you love me
By every star in the sky
But when you're close to me
You get that look in you eye
A burning feeling, you just can't disguise

CHORUS:

Words are not enough, to make me feel like a man in love
Words are not enough, to make me feel like a man in love

We need eachother its easy to see
You know I'm shaking all over thinking how good this could be

You can tell me you need me
And you can tell me you're mine
But when you're in my arms
The words starts spinning and we lose all track of time

CHORUS

INSANE - Ace Frehley, Gene Moore

Some people call me a walkin' disaster
Just a waitin' for a place to occur
But I still got enough that'll last her
Till the blood gets ready to burn

My meter's running, still got a lot of livin' to do
I live five days to your one
And you know it's true, yeah!

CHORUS:

(Listen!) I got money, got fame
Got everything ot play this game
No sorrow, no shame
Cuz nothin' matters when you're INSANE

It's never easy being the crazy
Just a job someone's got to do
Take a number and stand in the line
For the good life you never knew

My meter's running, still got a lot of livin' to do
I live five days to your one
And you know it's true, yeah!

CHORUS

HIDE YOUR HEART - Desmond Child, Paul Stanley, Holly Knight

Johnny saw her riding on a street car named Desire,
his fate was sealed
She could see him coming like a hundred other liars,
it was no big deal
Rosa had a lover on the shady side of town,
he was king of the streets
She was his possession like a jewel on his crown,
Johnny better run, better run

CHORUS:

Better hide your heart, better hold on tight
Say your prayers, 'cause there's trouble tonight
When pride and love battle with desire
Better hide your heart, 'cause you're playing with fire

The ride was over but the story doesn't end,
he took her heart
She looked him in the eye and said they couldn't meet again
You could see the trouble start
The word went out that Rosa's messin' with someone,
it was on the street
Tito looked for Johnny with a vengeance and a gun
Johnny better run, better run

CHORUS

Johnny's holdin' Rosa on a rooftop in the night,
as time stood still
They couldn't hear him coming 'til he had them both in sight
You could feel a chill
A shot ran out like thunder and the blood was on her hands,
with nothing won
When someone has to die,
you know they finally understand

CHORUS

TROUBLE WALKIN' - Bill Wray, Phil Brown

I am trouble walkin'
I am every mother's nightmare
I am trouble walkin'

Out on the street there's a lesson learned
You play with and you'll get burned
On the newsstand there's another book
Out on the street what count is the way you look

CHORUS

There aint no doubt I got what you need
You'll be beggin' baby please, please, please
With every switch sharper than a blade
I got you in my sights you can't escape

CHORUS
LEAD SOLO
BRIDGE

No matter where you run
No matter where you hide
Out here there's a rule you'll find
Only the strong survive

CHORUS
REPEAT

ROCK SOLDIERS - Ace Frehley, Chip Taylor

Produced by Eddie Kramer and Ace Frehley

Assistant Production by John Regan & Tod Howarth

It was back in the summer of '83
There's a reason I remember it well
I was slipping and sliding, drinkin' and drivin'
Bringin' me closer to Hell

And the Devil sat in the passenger's side
Of Delorean's automobile
He said: Hey Frehley, Frehley let's not be silly
There's a life out there to steal

CHORUS:

Rock soldiers come
And rock soldiers go
And some hear the drum
And some never know

Rock soldiers! How do we know?
Ace is back and he told you so.

With a trooper in the mirror
and Satan on my right
We went the wrong way down a one way road
Hitting everything in sight

I cried "I am invincible"
Said I was high above the law
But my only high was just a lie
And now I'm glad I saw

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Calling rock soldiers
You! Rock soldiers
Calling rock soldiers
hard rock soldiers

Friends say they'll stay with you
Right through that danger zone
But the closer you get to that fiery hole
You'll have to make it alone

When I think of how my life was spared
From that near fatal wreck
If the Devil wants to play his card game now
He's gonna have ot play without an Ace in his deck!!

CHORUS

RIP IT OUT - Ace Frehley, Larry Kelly, Sue Kelly

Now I know, you've been cheatin' and lyin' all the time
I didn't know you were gonna be so unkind
I've been trying just to find out how we went wrong
But I know that I can't trust you girl anymore

Chorus:
Rip it out, take my heart, you wanted it from the start
You got it now, so goodbye, so rip it out, watch me cry

It's so sad, I'm not glad to be with you today
And it's bad, 'cos I can't stop the pain day by day
If I knew how to stop you, I don't think I'd try
I think it's better if we just part and don't say goodbye

chorus

I hope you suffer!

chorus repeats 2x

Rip it out (repeats out)

BREAKOUT - Ace Frehley, Eric Carr, and Richie Scarlet

Been in this cell block seven years too long
Paying for a crime when I didn't do anything wrong
Lyin' here rottin' for someone else's mistake
I've come to my senses, it's time to make a break

CHORUS:

Breakout, I'm coming after you
Breakout, I'd say our love is overdue
Breakout, I'm at the breakin' point
Breakout, gonna bust of this joint

I'm sick and tired of punching out license plates
For a criminal justice system that I hate
The food here suck, I'm not about to wait
Well I've come to my senses It's time to make a break

CHORUS

COLD GIN

My heater's broke and I'm so tired
I need some fuel to build a fire
The girl next door, her lights are out, yeah
The landlord's gone, I'm down and out

It's cold gin time again
You know it'll always win
It's cold gin time again
You know it's the only thing
That keeps us together

It's time to leave and get another quart
Around the corner at the liquor store
The cheapest stuff is all I need
To get me back on my feet again

It's cold gin time again
You know it'll always win
It's cold gin time again
You know it's the only thing
That keeps us together

It's cold gin time again
You know it'll always win
It's cold gin time again
You know it's the only thing
That keeps us together

SHOCK ME - Ace Frehley

Your lightnin's all I need
My satisfaction grows
You make me feel at ease
You even make me glow

Don't cut the power on me
I'm feelin' low, so get me high

Shock me, make me feel better
Shock me, put on your black leather
Shock me, we can come together

And baby, if you do what you've been told
My insulation's gone, girl you make me overload

Don't pull the plug on me, no, no
Keep it in and keep me high

Shock me, make me feel better
Shock me, put on your black leather
Shock me, we can come together
Come on

Shock me, baby, shock me, oh yeah
Shock me, baby, shock me, oh yeah

Shock me, make me feel better, oh yeah
Come on and shock me, put on your black leather
Baby, I'm down to the bare wire
Shock me, we can come together
Oh yeah, I wanna feel your power
Shock me, make me feel better
Baby, I'm down to the bare wire
Shock me, put on your black leather
Baby, come on, come on, shock me

ROCKET RIDE - Ace Frehley, Sean Delaney

Lady space, you like the way
I make you feel inside
Take a rocket ride
From the start you wanted to fly
I got the rocket and you want the ride
Take a rocket ride

Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride

Lady space, you better wake up fast
Countdown is comin' on
Take a rocket ride
The gravity that used to hold you down
Just don't exist no more
Take a rocket ride

Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Come on, grab a hold of my rocket

Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Baby wants it fast, baby wants a blast
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Baby's on her knees, baby wants to please
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride
Baby's on her knees, baby wants to please
She wants a rocket ride, she wants a rocket ride

DEUCE

Get up
And get your grandma outta here
And pick up
Old Jim is workin' hard this year
And baby
Do the things he says to do

Baby, if you're feeling good
And baby if you're feeling nice
You know your man is workin' hard
He's worth a deuce!

Honey
Don't put your man behind his years
And baby
Stop cryin' all your tears
And baby
Do the things he says to do
Do it!

Baby, if you're feeling good
And baby if you're feeling nice
You know your man is workin' hard
He's worth a deuce!

Baby, if you're feeling good
And baby if you're feeling nice
You know your man is workin' hard
