Track Name: Afraid of the Light
You'll get the best of me

Wake me up in the moonlight hours
So sick of the A.M. blues
Take the last train down to where
The neon lights shine on me and you

My heart's talkin' but that don't mean that I'm listenin'
I grit my teeth and I bite my tongue because I'm, I'm slippin'

Are you afraid of the light?
Does it shine on your dark side?

My blood is boilin' for a midnight meltdown
I got a history of takin' my time
Nobody nobody gonna stand in my way
Gotta get it gotta have it just as fast as I can

Never talkin' but that don't mean that I'm listenin'
I eat my words and I bite my tongue because I'm, I'm slippin'

Are you afraid of the light?
Does it shine on your dark side?
Are you afraid of the light?
Does it shine on your dark side?

*solo*

Are you afraid of the light?
Does it shine on your dark side?
Are you afraid of the light?
Does it shine on your dark side?
Woah
Woah
Yeah
Track Name: Suck It Up
When you look inside yourself do you see the light
Cuz when they look inside you all they see is dollar signs
Take another holiday let it take you where it will
You only get one life to live so let's live inside the thrill

There's something in the air tonight
I feel a hunger for a fire onstage
Come on let me hear you scream out loud
And take your anger out on me

I'll be your energy freak
This ain't the place for tears, no no no
Forget the world for an evening
And get your wild side moving

Suck it up!
You know there's no use crying
When they try to bring you down
You gotta Suck it up!
You just gotta keep on fighting
Gotta show them what your made of

Did you get your motor running just to run out of gas
Did you give up your wildest dreams just for petty cash
Well I know what you need I ain't no stranger to the grind
You gotta get pissed off, give 'em hell
Give 'em a piece of your mind

There's something in the air tonight
I feel a hunger for a fire onstage
Come on let me hear you scream out loud
And take your anger out on me

I'll be your energy freak
This ain't the place for tears, no no no
Forget the world for an evening
And get your wild side moving

Suck it up!
You know there's no use crying
When they try to bring you down
You gotta Suck it up!
You just gotta keep on fighting
Gotta show them what your made of

*solo*

Suck it up!
You know there's no use crying
When they try to bring you down
You gotta Suck it up!
You just gotta keep on fighting
Gotta show them what your made of, yeah
Track Name: The One That I Want
Well I was hangin' out in "Black Shark", Tokyo
And I was drinkin' by the backstage door
She was beatin' on the drums like an animal
Heavy Metal Princess can ya gimmie some more

Shout out!
You had me right from the start
Right now!
A double-kick to my heart

I'm in love and it feels so strange
Ooh, you got me wonderin'
Have I fallen asleep and it's just a dream
Ooh, don't wake me up child
Every time that I see your face
Ooh, you got me shiverin'
In the middle of summer heat
Cuz you're the one that I want!

Well I was tearin' up the stage with a microphone
Her eyes were watchin' from somewhere in the crowd
She missed the last train home from the after-party
We "Rocked in Current" till the sun came around

Shout out!
You had me right from the start
Right now!
A double-kick to my heart

I'm in love and it feels so strange
Ooh, you got me wonderin'
Have I fallen asleep and it's just a dream
Ooh, don't wake me up child
Every time that I see your face
Ooh, you got me shiverin'
In the middle of summer heat
Cuz you're the one that I want!

*solo*

I'm in love and it feels so strange
Ooh, you got me wonderin'
Have I fallen asleep and it's just a dream
Ooh, don't wake me up child
Every time that I see your pretty face
Ooh, you got me shiverin'
In the middle of summer heat
Cuz you're the one that I want!
Track Name: Other Half of My Heart
Morning sun warms my skin so softly
Reminds me of who we are and where we are
Everyday a sort of transient beauty
We inhale but don't breathe the same air right now

Not just yet, my darling
Be still and wait, I'm coming home
Fall into fate our own way
Just live and don't be lonely

Seeking captivation in a work of art
We dive deep to dangerous depths of dark
For all we know we could be miles apart
I wanna know where they put the other half of my heart

Evening moon under which I'm patiently waiting
Greys and blues paint pictures of my feelings
Just a touch of sacred beauty to our story
We'll reflect like ancient tales of Genji

Not just yet, my darling
Be still and wait, I'm coming home
Fall into fate our own way
Just live and don't be lonely

Seeking captivation in a work of art
We dive deep to dangerous depths of dark
For all we know we could be miles apart
I wanna know where they put the other half of my heart

Woah, woah

Seeking captivation in a work of art
We dive deep to dangerous depths of dark
For all we know we could be miles apart
I wanna know where they put the other half of my heart
Track Name: Without You
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Heavy Metal in Tokyo
I watched the clock as it ticked on by
I looked for patience that I just couldn't find
I laid awake in my anticipation
Tried to get myself some relaxation
But how's a guy supposed to settle down?
When he's all turned around and upside down
I'll take adventure any way I can
I bought a one way ticket to Japan

Woah
I know what I'm in for
Hey! Heavy Metal in Tokyo!
Woah
And that's what I came for
Hey! Heavy Metal in Tokyo!

I got lost on the busy streets
I got to eat myself some tasty treats
I had some sushi how it's meant to me made
I was nervous but I wasn't afraid
I watched Cherry Blossoms fall from the sky
I was the craziest Gaijin Guy
I fell in love and had a whole lotta fun
Can't wait to go back to the Rising Sun

Woah
I know what I'm in for
Hey! Heavy Metal in Tokyo!
Woah
And that's what I came for
Hey! Heavy Metal in Tokyo!
Woah
Hey! Heavy Metal in Tokyo!
Track Name: Crash Operation
I lay awake in the middle of the night again
That burning passion runnin' through my head
I take some action just to make me forget
(It's like my medicine)
And now that it's over don't know where to begin

It's too late to escape from the trouble I'm in
And I'd never do it over again
Visiting hours are over and the doctor is in
I need a...

Crash Operation
You gotta tear out my heart
Transplanted and ready to roll
Gimmie a brand new start

I'll be here 'til the mornin' in recovery
But that's alright cuz I'm a brand new man
I promised, "Doctor, I won't let it get broke no more!"
But that's when the nurse came in and took my hand

It's too late to escape from the trouble I'm in
And I'd do it all over again
Visiting hours are over and the doctor is in
I need a...

Crash operation
You gotta tear out my heart
Get me back in the action
Gimmie a brand new start

*solo*

Crash operation
You gotta tear out my heart
Transplanted and ready to roll
Gimmie a brand new start
Crash operation
You gotta tear out my heart
Get me back in the action
Gimmie a brand new start
Track Name: Take My Chances
Take me out of this reality
Shake me up and feed me all my dreams
Give me everything I wanna see
Punch me in the heart and make me bleed

I keep on spinnin' around
And I keep on changin; my mind
I feel like a broke down wreck in the trash
And the world has left me behind

Ain't no fairytale
Ain't no song and dance
You know life is real
And you only get one chance

Wake me up to smell the rotten tea
I've been downtown too long I know this street
It don't end too nice and don't go well
Gotta get my ass in gear and give them hell

But I keep on spinnin' around
And I keep on changin; my mind
I feel like a broke down wreck in the trash
And the world has left me behind

Ain't no fairytale, no
Ain't no song and dance
You know life is real
And you only get one chance

I'm gonna take my chances and lock them away
In a place where they'll never be found
And maybe someone's gonna find 'em when I'm dead and gone
And make a fine man out of himself

*solo*

I keep on spinnin' around
And I keep on changin; my mind
I feel like a broke down wreck in the trash
And the world has left me behind

Ain't no fairytale, no
Ain't no song and dance
You know life is real
And you only get one chance

It ain't no fairytale
Ain't no song and dance
Well you know it's real woah
Track Name: Thunder Calls Your Name
When I walk that street
In the middle of the night
I wonder if you're watching me
And what would you say
If you were here right now
Walking beside me

Ah, too many cold and lonely nights
Passin' the time
Longing for days when we would walk together

Oh, tasting the falling rain
In the clouds I see your face
But the wind blows it all away
As the thunder calls your name

Crashing through the sky
With a blinding light
Electric arms reaching out for me
Pacing to and fro
From the left and to the right
You might be inside the energy
When I close my eyes
And the world goes black
I can feel the darkness surrounding me
Listen for your voice
Try to see your face
Holding onto the memory

Ah, every breath I breath is 'cuz of you
Takin' my time
Tryin' to walk in footsteps laid before me

Oh, tasting the falling rain
In the clouds I see your face
But the wind blows it all away
As the thunder calls your name

*solo*

Oh, tasting the falling rain
In the clouds I see your face
But the wind blows it all away
As the thunder calls your name
Tasting the falling rain
As the thunder calls your name
Track Name: お前の糸瓜になりたい (I Wanna Be Your Washcloth)
TRANSLATED LYRICS:

I wanna be your washcloth
Want you to use me when you wash your body
If I can be your washcloth
You'll have shiny skin by the power of vegetables

Let's shower together
Shave your armpits before my eyes

I live on for your skin
Until my last day, me and you!
My owner, I love you
But someday I will shrivel up

If that is my fate
I'll beat the crap outta your dirtiness
If someday I get thrown in the wet-garbage
That is the tragedy of the sponge-cucumber washcloth

Let's shower together
Pluck your eyebrows in front of me

I live on for your skin
Until my last day, me and you!
My owner, I love you
But someday I will shrivel up

*solo*

I live on for your skin
Until my last day, me and you!
My owner, I love you
But someday I will shrivel up
