NIGHTRAIN

Night train calls my name, from the dark,

It ain’t always been that way, but it’s that way now

She ain’t never coming back,

Lord she’s gone

 

And it feels so sad, you ain’t coming back,

And it seems so sad, you ain’t coming back

 

Dark voice cries my name,

Calling Marty look, look see, look feel,

Tugging’ on my skin like a hook in a fish

Lord, what you done to me?

Oh, babe, you’re never coming back, you’re gone

 

And it feels so sad, you ain’t coming back,

And it seems so sad, you ain’t coming back

 

Night train calls my name, wet, out of the dark,

Down that tunnel where, the light is shining, coming fast my way

She ain’t coming back, she gone!

 

Lord it feels so sad, you ain’t coming back,

And it seems so sad, you ain’t coming back

SCORPION

Welcome again
To the Last Chance Hotel
Sittin’ in the sun
Planks dried out years ago
By something
That’s more bitter than sunlight

Like a Scorpion
Sitting in the sun
Fun
We’ve only just begun

Hmm, they say misery loves company
Well, I’ve got me
Sitting here with space
As far as I can see

It strips you down
Strips you down
Lord, it strips you down

‘Till nothing remains
Nothing remains
Nothing but instinct
Remains
Scorpion Instinct

Hmm, it’s wild
It’s wild
It’s wild
Wild
Scorpion
It’s Wilde

It’s been one o’ them days
