Ghost

Lyrics by Danny Fury

Had a knife at my throat and a gun in my face
But cities are still my favorite space
Like a wounded tiger, sensing his death
I’m standing my ground up to my last breath

Step by step, I’m movin’ in closer
Up to the things, that I want the most
Put up a fence, a gate or a wall
And I will slip through the cracks
Just like a ghost……just like a ghost

And if I would know…the day I die
I’d live in denial and won’t say goodbye
And if you could tell me….where my bones will lie
I’d still sing the song of life to the sky

I spread my wings when challenges call
I fly like an eagle feel no fear at all
You ain’t gonna keep me from what I want most
I’ll always slip through the cracks just like a ghost

And if I would know, the day I die
I’d live in denial and won’t say goodbye
And if you could tell me, where my bones will lie
I’d still sing the song of life to the sky
Yeah
I’d still walk the wild side of life
And never say die

Monster in my D.N.A

Lyrics by Keith Sparrow and Danny Fury

They are paragons of virtue
They are here to name and hurt you
Mess you up and then desert you
While they keep you under curfew
They will lay these guilt upon you
Give ya grey, instead of colors
They will always find another way
To keep this sword above you

There’s a monster in my D.N.A.
I got to dive into the gene pool
So I can wash the stain away
There’s a monster in my D.N.A.
I need to cut these puppet strings
And I’m ok. (Cut)

They will clip your wings with fears
Wage their holy war for years
’till their stairway up to heaven
Is completely drenched in tears
All the cuts and all the bruises
All the lies and lame excuses
All the vain and tired abuses
Never beat me, I refuse to keep
Those monsters in my D.N.A.

Yeah, I can see the stars
And I have dreamed the future
The world will be as one
With room for all our culture
We will exterminate
The greed you hold so dear
Gonna wash my D.N.A.
’till the water runs clear

So accept my resignation
From this religious sedation
I’m in danger of disputing
There was never a damnation
Still got love, I got compassion
I got values without your gods
All the chains will fall at last
Against a thousand odds.

Legends of the Free

Lyrics by Danny Fury

Everyone is hoping, a messiah comes along
Whole nation’s waiting for the one who will be strong
I know you are wishing someone would make a move
Just like me you’re itching to shuffle to a groove
Everyone is ready now to grab a helping hand
That pulls you from your ditch, straight into wonderland

I’m gonna be the one with the words to make you see
While you’re all still waiting, might as well put up with me

Everyone is racing for shelter from the rain
That drenched you to the bones, watered the seed of pain
Everyone is pulling a thorn stuck deep inside
Watch out you’re not hurting, a loved one with your pride
We all are searching for something we don’t find
In this corporate set up and the mess it leaves behind

I can’t cure all your ills just by the count of three
But I know a thing or two, about how to sail a stormy sea

I’m the last one of my kind, that you ever gonna see
Yeah the closest thing alive, to the legends of the free

Everyone is yearning, the grind may have an end
Worked your fingers to the bone, yet there’s nothing in your hands
Still, everyone is willing to play it by their rules
Everybody knows they lie, still we follow them like fools

I’m the last one of my kind, that you ever gonna see
The closest thing alive to the legends of the free
Yeah come with me and I’ll tell you about, the legends of the free.

Lament to the Moon

Lyrics by Danny Fury

Don’t remember just how long my baby has been gone
Endless nights are followed, by days just draggin’ on
I’m standing in the rain, until my feet are wet
My offering to the wishing well, don’t work for me just yet

I look up at the moon and it seems to be stuck
On a far too dark sky, well, we’re both shit outta luck

My friends think I’m alright, but I really should confess
With my baby gone, I’m always a bit of a mess
Deprived of her brown eyes, soft hands and her kiss
The list goes on and on and on, there’s plenty that I miss

I look up at the moon and it seems to be stuck
On a far too dark sky, well, we’re both shit outta luck
I look up at the moon on a sky that mourns in black
No stars up there for company, we’re both shit outta luck

A scary old tree nearby is scratchin’ up the sky
The black crow in its branches, givin’ me the evil eye
tonight this town feels cruel, even the cold winds moan
I’m pleading with an unseen force, show her the way back home

Well, I’ve never been a stranger, to being on my own
But now when I’m alone, I’m just a dog without a bone
Been like that ever since, I fell under her spell
I’m either up in heaven, or it’ll hurt like hell

I look up at the moon and it seems to be stuck
On a far too dark sky, well, we’re both shit outta luck
I look up at the moon on a sky that mourns in black
No stars up there for company, we’re both outta luck.

The Deed is done

Lyrics Danny Fury

By the hand of fate, a great big change
With my past gone up in flames
Where the hell do you start again?
When you’re past the point of no return.

One more stake in a daring game
Down the crossroads, signed my name
I was set to win, with every ace I’ve got
Put my sign on the page in blood

Sure a bold move but where will you turn?
Now that all the bridges burn
The heat is on, the deed is done
The gun is loaded, will the chamber turn?
Sure ain’t none of your concern
The heat is on, the deed is done…..and I’m back on the run

All the bridges burn behind
A real close shave, but I don’t mind
Absorbing brave new energy
The element of fertility

Sure a bold move, but where will you turn?
Now that all the bridges burn
The heat is on the deed is done
Chase my dreams and hope I’ll earn
That one day the tables turn
The heat is on the deed is done….and I’m back on the run

Well I am a fast lane driver
A fully qualified survivor
And to all the reasons why
I was born with an urge to fly

Brand new faces, brand new names
Round trip ticket, never part of the plan
Another goodbye to another good friend
On my way to the wild West End

Sure a bold move but where will you turn?
Now that all the bridges burn
The heat is on, the deed is done
The gun is loaded will the chamber turn?
It sure ain’t none of your concern
The heat is on the deed is done
Yeah, chase my dreams and hope I’ll earn
That one day the tables turn
The heat is on the deed is done
The show must go on…and on an’ on an’ on. 

IN TRANSITION      EP

COMING HOME                   Lyrics by Danny Fury

Alright, gonna tell ya some stories….
I left town to rock the big time many years ago
Rolled on top but crash-landed my ass down on skid row
Where you pay with your blood and everything you own
What a ride, on the wild side, but now i’m coming home … wow

Been a long way, i’m coming home
Such a long way, where i come from

I think of all the years that passed and all the things i’ve done
All those many miles i’ve ripped up just to sing my song
Heroes, lovers, crazy stories, good times on the run
I’ve seen rock’n’roll stand tall, then i watched it come undone…..wow

Been a long way, i’m coming home
Such a long way, where i come from

I’m coming home home where i belong, yeah where i’ll be strong
Coming home home where i belong

Gimme power and strength, London town
All the luck there is, this time around
Everything for me and my girl, yeah
One more time on top of the world

Been a long way i’m coming home
Such a long way where i come from

I’m coming home, home where i belong, yeah where i’ll be strong
comin’ home, home where i belong, where inspiration’s strong
comin’ home , home where i belong, where i can sing my song
comin’ home, home finally home.

DARK SIDE        lyrics by Danny Fury

Yeah, i admit i have a dark side in me
normally it chooses to hide
i can tell it’s very sly and dangerous
‘cuz it doesn’t just hurt my pride
lurking in the hallways of my jaded mind
feeding poison to my soul
it’s hit and run when it breaks out from inside
i never got it under control

Chorus 1

Well, are you scared by what you see ?
or can you cope with all of me ?
it’s so dark i hardly see
can you find your way to me ?

Verse 2

Yeah, i admit i have a dark side in me
i’m sliding on the blade of a knife
never had a holster and the edge is sharp
beware if you enter my life
it makes me do dark stuff not good for you
so far i’ve survived it’s attacks
but as always, i’m the one who gets hurt
my heart ‘n’ soul already cracked

Chorus 2

So, are you scared by what you see ?
or can you cope with all of me ?
it’s so dark, i hardly see
can you find your way to me ?

Middle part

Can you shine a light ?
chase the dark outside
get my hands untied
watch my back tonight, in the fight

are you scared by what you see ?
or can you cope with all of me ?
it’s so dark, i hardly see
can you find your way to me ?

Chorus 3

Well i’m stuck and i ain’t free
but i am not to blind to see
if i live the dream for real
i chain the dark, my world will heal.

NO RULES            lyrics by Danny Fury

Verse 1

What a bad girl she took half of my soul
mean kill city can swallow you whole
hell’s where i’ve been don’t know where i’m going
she was the only answer worth knowing

Verse 2

Still claiming my way outta the hole
can’t give you the heart she already stole
rats in the cellar feed on heart aches i’m stowing
i need a fix, but the needle’s for sowing

Chorus 1

Wanna fly but i’m ready to fall
checkin’ my blessings i count nothing at all
can not go home, she locked up the door
i know i should move on, but i still want more

Verse 3

Night is a falling dark as my soul
got me a saviour called rock’n’roll
walking on water but the river keeps flowing
where will it take us ? no way of knowing !

Chorus 2

Wanna fly but i’m ready to fall
checkin’ my blessings i count nothing at all
can not go home, she locked up the door
i know i should move on, but i still want more

Middle part

Couldn’t believe it when she walked out the door
i thought to myself, she would come back for more
found myself dreamin’ the dream on my own
but i know she still loves me, can i ever go home ?

Chorus 3

Wanna fly but i’m ready to fall
checkin’ my blessings, i count nothing at all
can not go home, she locked up the door
i know i should move on, but i still want more
wanna fly but i’m ready to fall
if i can’t share it, it means nothing at all
wanna go home gonna break down the door
i guess all is fair in love and war

cuz there ain’t no rules in love and war
no there ain’t no rules in love and war.

THE DEVIL TO PAY              Lyrics by DANNY FURY

VERSE 1

YOU ENTER THE TUNNEL THINKIN’ YOU MIGHT
SEE AT THE OTHER END, ONE DAY THE LIGHT
YOU FOLLOW THAT ANGELIC SOFT VOICE THAT CALLS
BUT KEEP ON RUNNING YOUR HEAD INTO WALLS

BRIDGE

BEFORE YOU DESPAIR IN DESPERATION
REMEMBER IT’S THE JOURNEY AND NOT THE DESTINATION

VERSE 2

FINDING JUST THINGS, YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE FOUND
DRAGGIN’ THAT LOAD WITH YOU AROUND
YOU THINK YOU CAN MAKE IT BUT IT’S BREAKIN’ YOUR BACK
AND SOMETIMES YOUR WAYS JUST DON’T KEEP YOU ON TRACK

BRIDGE

BEFORE YOU DESPAIR IN DESPERATION
REMEMBER IT’S THE JOURNEY AND NOT THE DESTINATION

CHORUS

WELL, THE DICE IS STILL TUMBLING SO KEEP ON YOUR WAY
BUT DON’T YOU FORGET, THERE’S THE DEVIL TO PAY

VERSE 3

FEELING THE STRANGLE HOLD OF YOUR OWN SHEMES
YOU STAND IN THE FRAGMENTS OF YOUR BROKEN DREAMS
YOU BET IT WILL TAKE NOW, ALL THAT YOU’VE GOT
TO GET BACK ON TRACK AND FOLLOW THE PLOT

BRIDGE

BEFORE YOU DESPAIR IN DESPERATION
REMEMBER IT’S THE JOURNEY AND NOT THE DESTINATION

CHORUS

WELL, THE DICE IS STILL TUMBLING SO KEEP ON YOUR WAY
BUT DON’T YOU FORGET THERE’S THE DEVIL TO PAY.

THINGS GONE WRONG                   LYRICS BY DANNY FURY

VERSE 1

I’M ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SOMETHING
TO ADD IT ALL UP AND MAKE SENSE
OF ALL THE CONFUSION AROUND ME
ON MY PLANET EARTH RESIDENCE
AIN’T NO SUCH THING AS AN EASY RIDE
THE STRUGGLE’S ENDLESS WHEN WILL I LEARN ?
WHENEVER I SNUB THE LAWS OF PHYSICS
I’M LIKELY TO CRASH AND BURN

BRIDGE

IF I WOULD PUT IN THE TIME AND THE EFFORT
I MIGHT EMERGE A WISER MAN
I’D FIND THE RIGHT STASH AND IN A FLASH
I’D HOLD THE JACKPOT IN MY HAND

VERSE 2

I USUALLY FIND OUT THE HARD WAY
THE LESSONS I REFUSED TO SEE
THEY’RE RUBBED IN MY FACE AND SHOVED DOWN MY THROAT
YOU REALLY OUGHTTA TAKE IT FROM ME
YEAH LET ME TELL YOU THERE AIN’T NO EASY RIDE
I CLAIMED MOUNTAINS LIKE YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE
I FELL DOWN SO MANY GOD DAMNED HOLES
IT CAUSED THE WORLD AROUND ME SOME GRIEF

BRIDGE

IF I WOULD PUT IN THE TIME AND THE EFFORT
I MIGHT EMERGE A WISER MAN
I’D FIND THE RIGHT STASH AND IN A FLASH
I’D HOLD THE JACKPOT IN MY HANDS…BUT THERE…

CHORUS 1

AIN’T NO FINAL SOLUTION, TO FIX ALL THE THINGS GONE WRONG
BACK ‘N’ FORTH EVOLUTION, I’M JUST ABOUT HANGIN’ ON
YEAH, I’M BARELY HANGIN’ ON

CHORUS 2

AIN’T NO FINAL SOLUTION, TO FIX ALL THE THINGS GONE WRONG
(EVERYTHING’S GONE WRONG)
AIN’T NO FRENCH REVOLUTION, BUT A CHANGE HAS GOTTA COME

MIDDLE PART

BUT NO MATTER WHAT I DO, NO MATTER HOW I TRY
IT ALL GOES DOWN THE DRAIN, ALWAYS GOTTA KISS GOODBYE
THE GIRL THAT I LOVE, THE BAND THAT I GOT
ALONG WITH ALL THE REST THAT MEANS A LOT…WOW…

CHORUS 3

AIN’T NO FINAL SOLUTION, TO FIX ALL THE THINGS GONE WRONG
(EVERYTHING’S GONE WRONG)
BACK ‘N’ FORTH EVOLUTION, I’M JUST ABOUT HANGIN’ ON
YEAH, I’M BARELY HANGIN’ ON
AIN’T NO FINAL SOLUTION, TO FIX ALL THE THINGS GONE WRONG
(EVERYTHING’S GONE WRONG)
AIN’T NO FRENCH REVOLUTION, BUT A CHANGE HAS GOTTA COME
AIN’T NO FINAL SOLUTION, TO FIX ALL THE THINGS GONE WRONG
(EVERYTHING’S GONE WRONG)
AIN’T NO RESOLUTION, THE THING THAT SAVES ME IS A ROCK’N’ROLL SONG.

TOO CLOSE                  Lyrics by DANNY FURY

VERSE 1

CAN’T TAKE ANYMORE OF THIS, WAITING FOR THE MAN
I FIND YOUR POISON SWEETER, SALVATION IS AT HAND
DRAW ME A MAGIC CIRCLE, STRONG ENOUGH TO HEAL
DESIRE STILL ENTANGLED IN THE WEB OF A BAD DEAL

VERSE 2

TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS BABE, SHOW ME LIFE IS KIND
YOU KNOW I’M ALWAYS FREEZING, I FUCKED UP MY MAIN LINES
HEAVEN IS ALWAYS TEMPTING, BUT IT CAN TURN TO HELL
DID YOU MAKE ME OVER ? ENOUGH TO BREAK THE SPELL ?

CHORUS

TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME, I WAS TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME
MUCH TO CLOSE
ALWAYS GETTING BURNED THAT WAY, TIME AFTER TIME

VERSE 3

THE BATTLE’S ALMOST OVER, AM I TO WIN ?
DID I SLAY THE DEMON ? OR WILL IT RISE AGAIN ?
A NEW DAWN IS BREAKIN’, BUT ONLY TIME CAN TELL
HAS THE CURSE BEEN LIFTED ? OR WILL I BURN IN HELL ?

CHORUS

TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME, I WAS TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME
MUCH TO CLOSE
ALWAYS GETTING BURNED THAT WAY, TIME AFTER TIME
I WAS WAY TO CLOSE
TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME, I WAS TOO CLOSE TO THE FLAME
MUCH TO CLOSE
ALWAYS GETTING BURNED THAT WAY, AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A WORN OUT GAME.

BORROWED TIME                     lyrics by Danny Fury

VERSE 1

What a blinding stroke of luck, you breached that heart of mine
i thought it lost and traded in, to buy me some more time
you brought back all the colours, that shone once so divine
cast away the shadows, that won’t let spirits shine.

CHORUS

I never look back in regret
all those shivers, rolling down my spine
all the time, ‘cuz for a while i could forget,
that i’m just livin’ on borrowed time.

VERSE 2

Your kiss woke me from a sleep, that used up all my time
in debt to all that now can be, you stopped my own decline
because you’ve seen me strong again, i feel i should define
every moment’s born to die and will be lost in time.

CHORUS 2

I never look back in regret….all those
shivers, rollin’ down my spine…all the time
gave me your heart so i’d forget
that i’m just livin’ on borrowed time.

MIDDLE 8

Although i can’t see, the dark end of the line
the devil knows i’m only livin’ on borrowed time
now winter’s coming and you’re no longer mine
the devil says i’m only livin’ on borrowed time.

VERSE 3

Well, i’m pouring out my heart into a glass of wine
ain’t gonna get the chance again, your hand slipped from mine.

CHORUS

I never look back in regret…all those
shivers, rollin’ down my spine…all the time
‘cuz for a while i could forget
that i’m just livin’ on borrowed time.
but i’m fine
i never look back in regret…..all those
shivers, rollin’ down my spine…all the time
gave me your heart so i’d forget
that i’m just livin’ on borrowed time.
livin’ on borrowed time.

GHOSTSHIP BAR BLUES                      lyrics by Danny Fury

VERSE 1

The damage is done, lost what i won
here comes the pain, she was the one
shades of grey, growing on me
ain’t no more colours that i can see

BRIDGE

Here i go again, singin’ the blues
in a ghostship bar, on a mind bending cruise

VERSE 2

Dwelling in shadows, cast by a pearl
or walkin’ the streets in a black’n’white world
food tastes of nothing and my mind’s on the run
frozen to the bones, i’m waiting for the sun.

BRIDGE 2

Here i go again, singin’ the blues
in a ghostship bar and the planks are breakin’ lose

CHORUS 2

Hey, i want my heart back if it’s all over
i’m so tired of singin’ the blues
hey, gimme my heart back if it’s all over
baby i got nothin’ else to lose, except the ghostship bar blues.

VERSE 3

Felt safe enough, givin’ my heart
not so sure now, it was that smart
‘cuz when she left, she took it away
take care of it now babe, might need it back some day

BRIDGE 3

Here i go again singin’ the blues
in a ghostship bar and the planks are breakin’ lose

CHORUS 3

Hey, i want my heart back if it’s all over
i’m so tired of singin’ the blues
hey, gimme my heart back if it’s all over
baby i got nothin’ else to lose
hey, i want my heart back if it’s all over
i’m so tired of singin’ the blues
hey, gimme my heart back if it’s all over
baby i got nothin’ else to lose
except the ghostship bar blues
yeah and that’s all.

LONG LIVE ROCK’N’ROLL                    lyrics by Danny Fury

VERSE 1

Lovers have come and gone, the music always stayed
i could always get back up, long as the music played
like milk of the poppy, it takes you in it’s arms
plugs a heart string deep inside, drowns you in it’s charm’s alright
keeps you goin’ all night
take the fast lane foot glued down ‘n’ let go of control

CHORUS

Raise your glass to every song, that’s ever touched your soul
ancient ritual voodoo beat, long live rock n roll
tip your hat to every band that left you feeling whole
ancient instincts in the heat, long live rock n roll.

VERSE 2

It saved my ass many a time, when i slipped and stumbled
built my world up from the ground, every time it crumbled down
it kept me safe and sound
so take the fast lane, foot glued down ‘n’ let go of control.

CHORUS

Raise your glass to every song, that’s ever touched your soul
ancient ritual voodoo beat, long live rock n roll
tip your hat to every band that left you feeling whole
ancient instincts in the heat, long live rock n roll, live rock n roll.

MIDDLE 8

And all the songs that never were
are still floating through the air
and all the love we could share
is still out there, for us somewhere

VERSE 3

It’s a language of it’s own, understood in all the world
one day it might fuse us together, as one nation in one world
it’s everybody’s world
now take the fast lane, foot glued down ‘n’ let go of control.

CHORUS
Raise your glass to every song, that’s ever touched your soul
ancient ritual voodoo beat, long live rock n roll
tip your hat to every band that left you feeling whole
ancient instincts in the heat, long live rock n roll, live rock n roll, long live rock n roll.

DARK STAR                     lyrics by Danny Fury
dedicated to Stiv Bators    R.I.P.
VERSE 1

Born with an ancient soul
a creature of the night
fought a nocturnal revolution
you sure put up a fight
stirred up LA and New York City
then conquered London Town
music became a weapon
to spread the word around.

VERSE 2

They called you a sensation
awww, you didn’t give a fuck
you were just out there on a mission
to stab the devil in the back
you had the looks, the moves, the songs
you had a message too
all the stars were watching
and wishin’ they were you.

CHORUS

Dead boy, dark star, won’t you shine no more ?
lord of the ragged army, did you have to go ?

MIDDLE 8

You put the writing on the wall
truth is the sword of us all
live by that sword and you won’t fall
and i say : truth is salvation for us all
and in my dreams i hear you call
truth is the sword of us all……hey

Dead boy, dark star

VERSE 3

Conspiracies and Crowley
you kept me up night after night
told me, the magic you believe in
is neither black or white
we shared a vision and the stars
and put ’em to the test
now all i got is memories
and ashes on my chest.

CHORUS

Dead boy, dark star, won’t you shine no more
lord of the ragged army, did you have to go ?
dead boy, dark star, won’t you shine no more
lord of the new church, i still miss you so.
