"Don't Tread" (1992)

Don't Tread On Me lyrics - Damn Yankees

Freedom rider on a midnight cruise
On my way, I got nothing to lose
Sister mercy gonna take my hand
Lead me over to the promised land

But you better not set your sights on me
'Cause it just might spoil your victory

Don't you dare
Don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on me

We walked the ground of ancient ones
Lit the fire with the rising sun
You and me, we got a full on rage
Won't get fooled, no I won't be caged

Make love not war was your claim to fame
Now you're takin' me down, well I won't be tamed

Don't you dare
Don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on me

You better turn and walk away
(Don't tread on me)
You might learn to love another day
And I know you need to hear me say
All I want is you

Don't you dare
Don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and make some fool of me
Don't you tread on

Don't you dare
Don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you try and lay your shit on me
Don't you tread on

Don't you dare
Don't you tread on me
Don't you tread on me
Don't you dare forget your history
Don't you tread on me

Fifteen Minutes Of Fame lyrics - Damn Yankees

Young, rich and famous
What you want to be
You give it everything you got
But your sympathy
Been with everybody in the magazines
You know you're spinning so fast
That you're running out of fantasies
What you want is
What you need is
What you're willing to be
It's so strange
You feel so insane
It's like--who's that talking to me
Here's your 15 minutes of fame
What you gonna give me
To ease the pain
When it's all over
Won't know your name
Here's your 15 minutes of fame
No satisfaction
Your simple creed
You know you pour in everyone you got
Just to fill the need
No doubt you're witness
To a major scene
But you better not lose your touch
Or you're history
What you want is
What you need is
What you're willing to be
It's so strange
You feel so insane
It's like--who's that talking to me
Here's your 15 minutes of fame
It's a risky business
It's a liar's game
Into the spotlight and out again
Come and get your 15
Your 15 minutes of fame
Here's your 15 minutes of fame
It's a risky business
It's a liar's game
Into the spotlight and out again
Come and get your 15
Your 15 minutes of fame

Where You Goin' Now lyrics - Damn Yankees

There's a face in the mirror
And you close your eyes
Much easier to turn away
Than to take a look inside
So you're thinking it's over
Walking away
Let your little world crash and burn
Oh, what a price to pay

Didn't anybody tell you
It's not who's right or wrong?
Hold the line
Is this what's going on?

Where you going now?
When your world's turned inside out
Isn't love what it's all about?
Where you going now?
When you get to the top of the hill
Gonna be there yes I will

There's a crack in the mirror
There's a hole in the sun
Full moon in the midnight sky
And you feel like you wanna run
So you blow out the candle
And you turn off the light
Then you stumble into darkness
Do you believe that love is blind?

Didn't anybody tell you
It's never too late to try?
Hold the line
Before you say goodbye

Where you going now?
When your world's turned inside out
Isn't love what it's all about?
Where you going now?
When you get to the top of the hill
Gonna be there yes I will

Now I'm not talking 'bout what's good for me
And I'm not saying, how you ought to be
But if there is a message shining on through to you
Take a little piece of mind
And let your love light shine

Didn't anybody tell you
It's never too late to try?
Hold the line
Before you say goodbye

Where you going now?
When your world's turned inside out
Isn't love what it's all about?
Where you going now?
When you get to the top of the hill
Gonna be there yes I will

Where you going now?
When your world's turned inside out
Isn't love what it's all about?
Where you going now?
When you get to the top of the hill
Gonna be there yes I will
Gonna be there yes I will

Dirty Dog lyrics - Damn Yankees

Can't you see I'm a lovable man
Got a plaque on the wall
Baby can I help you understand
Times a-wastin' and I'm ready to rock
Well did I show you my clock
It's got diamonds all around the band
Try to touch you, you push me away
All I hear you say is
Get down dirty dog
You don't know right from wrong
And I'm not one of your bitches
Get back you dirty dog
Been messin' where you don't belong
Stop sniffin' round my britches
Can't take it when you're callin' me names
Yeah I think it's a shame
You can do me like the way you do
You big teaser now you throw me bone
Then you hurry me home
Honey what am I supposed to do
I don't deserve it
You're makin' me pay
You push me away when you say
Get down dirty dog
You don't know right from wrong
And I'm not one of your bitches
You said get back you dirty dog
Been messin' where you don't belong
Stop sniffin' round my britches
Well that's a dog gone lie
You gotta give me a try
I'm walkin' out that door
Ain't gonna scratch no more
Gonna sever my relation
Dig a little deeper hole
Get a little self control
One more night out in the cold
Face down in my doggie bowl
She said
Get down dirty dog
You don't know right from wrong
And I'm not one of your bitches
Get back you dirty dog
Been messin' where you don't belong
Stop sniffin' round my britches

Mister Please lyrics - Damn Yankees

Mister please
Won't you tell me I'm alright
I'm so lonely
I been thinking I could die
I got me a woman
She bled her soul
All over me
I think she's crazy
What you gonna do with me
Brother brother
Can't you hear them mission bells
Calling out
All them sinners bound for hell
Ain't no stranger
Been down that road before
So brother brother
Won't you tell me I'm alright
I'm alright
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
Smoking mother nature into the dust
Yeah that's all I see
Praying to gods that are made out of rust
And thinking what you might have been
Now I suppose I could change my vows
Yeah that's all I need
Maybe some day you'll find me fishing
For the lock that fits with my key
Gonna change it baby that me
Ah, ah, hey mister
Never one to count
Take a look at my life
What a work of art I see
Got no love baby living off the tracks
With the chains and the shackles on me
Now I'm with you
Gonna head on south
Sliding down to Mexico way
Maybe someday you'll find me sitting
On a beach where the palm-ah trees sway
And heaven's just a little kiss away
Won't you help me mister please
Now I suppose I could change my vows
Yeah that's all I need
Maybe someday you'll find me fishing
For the lock that fits with my key
Gonna change it baby that's me
Won't you help me mister please
Mister please
Won't you tell me I'm alright
I'm so lonely
I been thinking I could die
I got this woman
She bled her soul all over me
Now I think I'm crazy
What you gonna do with me
Mister please

Silence Is Broken lyrics - Damn Yankees

Never again
You say the words and let
The sunshine in again
You can close your eyes
And know it's safe inside
To sing you lullaby

Now I lay me down

You broke the chains
And you won't be silent anymore
Oh no! Now you're gonna shout about it
No! No more! Yeah yeah this is the end

The silence is broken now
It's over now
The words have been spoken
And with every word you say
You blow away
The tears of another time

Face to face
Anyone can see you're not
The child you were before

Now I lay you down

You take your place
No one can take away your heart
Oh no! There can be no doubt about it
No! No more! Yeah yeah this is the end

The silence is broken now
It's over now
The truth has been spoken
And with every word you say
You blow away
Yeah

Never again
You say the words and let
The sunshine in again
You can change the world
No one can take away your heart

The silence is broken now
It's over now
The words have been spoken
And with every word you say
You blow away
The tears of another time

The silence is broken now
It's over now
The truth has been spoken
And with every word you say
You blow away
The scene of another crime

Firefly lyrics - Damn Yankees

Haven't I seen your face before
You greased the handles on my door
Took me for a ride
Down lover's highway
Uh huh, oh yeah
Let's shake it up
Next time you're going my way
I don't want you comin' down
Spread your lightning all around
Yeah that's right baby
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Well pretty faces turn to stone
Pack their bags and head for home
When I dress you in that little next to nothing
Uh huh
I don't think I need you now
Or what
You got to let me know
How far you want to go
Is it yes or no
Unless unless you let me know we never ever ever
Ever gonna get started
Some people never learn
That you just might get burned
Now you just say the word
Come on say it say it to me to me come on
Now say it to me
Once you get started it's hard to get off the road that you're on
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly
Let your firefly

Someone To Believe lyrics - Damn Yankees

There was a time
When a man lived by his word
And the simple truth
Was not so hard to take
When his enemies
Were thousands of miles away
And he stood by
The promises he'd make

All that I ask for
All that I need
Is someone that I can believe

Yeah

Just like the air
That we breathe in a single day
To a drowning man
How much do you think he'd pay

All that I ask for
All that I need
Is someone that I can believe

When I listen to the things you try to say
Any ordinary man would fade away
But if you want I'm ready to receive
I know that I can believe

Every word you say
And the love you give away
Goes straight to my heart
And everything you do
And how you follow through
Can keep us together
Or tear us apart

When I listen to the things you try to say
Any ordinary man would fade away
But if you want I'm ready to receive
Well I would not have it any other way
I know that I
I know that I
I know that I can believe

Yeah

And I am listening
To every word you say

This Side Of Hell lyrics - Damn Yankees

I don't want to talk
That much about anything
And I don't want to know
About who you been seeing
My will is on
And I can't say no
The feeling's strong
But I can't let go
Baby
You got me living this side of hell
Living this side oh well
You got me salivating
Was it Pavlov's intention
Living this side of hell
I don't know much
About wide-eyed innocence
Or hanging around
Without your cheap intelligence
My brain went south
As I hit the floor
And all I want is more and more
Honey
You got me living this side of hell
Living this side oh well
While I was goin' to school
You bent me over the rules
Living this side of hell
I come around
And start to knock at your door
I hear a voice say
"She don't live here no more"
That's it for me
I guess I don't get to score
And then you woo me, you do me, you chew me up and spit me out
You keepin' it up
'Til a quarter to three
That little bitty thang
Got a hold on me
Honey
What you doin' to me
What yo tryin' to do
What you tryin' to do to me
Got me living this side of hell
Living this side oh well
I'm in way over my head
Why can't I be like Ted
Living this side of hell
Got me living this side of hell
You got me living this side oh well
Is it your good intention
Or a crisis intervention
Got me living this side of hell
Living this side
Living this side
Living this side
Living this side of hell

Double Coyote lyrics - Damn Yankees

I was standing on the corner
With a suitcase in my hand
There was a woman right behind me
Sayin' honey won't you be a man
I said I'd love to baby
But I've got to go be with the band
I got to go go go
Go baby go
Go honey go
Double coyote man
I got to go go go
Go baby go
Go mama go
Double coyote man
I couldn't believe it when somebody said
You was out on the road with another band
I got to go go go
Go baby go
Go mama go
I got to go go go
Go baby go
Go mama go
Double coyote man
I couldn't believe it when somebody said
You was out on the road in the back of
The bus with the opening act and the
Technical crew and the manager too
What's the matter with you

Uprising lyrics - Damn Yankees

Thunder on the mountain
Fire in the sky
The rainbow is my brother
I will choose to live or die
A stampede on the prairie
That brings me to my knees
My spirit is the eagle
And he will set me free
Another night of horror
The streets are living hell
The gangland has no honor
Just that dying smell
Where is the vigilante
He is better than the knave
Life's a penny ante
I refuse to be a slave
Because I am an uprising citizen
Red man
When you feel an uprising
And your blood runs cold
You dig a little deeper
To the bottom of the hole
Oh our time has come
Oh our time
Uprising
When you feel an uprising
And your blood runs cold
You look a little deeper
To the bottom of your soul
Oh our time has come
Oh our time
Uprising
You dig a little deeper
To the bottom of the hole
Uprising

Damn Yankees (1990)

Bad Reputation lyrics - Coming Of Age

Dressed to kill and lookin' dynomite,
with her high-laced stockings and her sweater so tight.
I asked her her name, she said her name was "Maybe."

Well she walked up to me, and she asked me to chance
I said, "I am lookin' for some wild romance,"
She gave me a wink--she said I should think about it, maybe

She said, "What you got babe, is what I need.
Your kind of love got me on my knees."
I'm so tied up
What you got got a hold on me, your kind of love make a man outta me
I'm so tied up, you got me so fired up

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was comin' of age

If looks could kill, I'd be dead on the floor
You got me all tied up, honey, beggin' for more
Somebody call a doctor, I think I'm goin' crazy

(Because) What you got, babe, is what I need
Your kind of love got me on my knees
I'm so tied up
What you got got a hold on me
Your kind of love make a man outta me
I'm so tied up
You got me so fired up

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of....

Little sister, hits the stage
She can't help it, she's comin' of age
Little junior, he's all in a rage
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of...
Did you notice she was come, come, comin' of age
She's come, come, comin' of age
Yeah she come, she come, she come

Runaway lyrics - Damn Yankees

(Everyone needs a place to run away, run away)

Summer night, moonlit sky
Tearing pages from a magazine, she cries
"I don't wanna be the lonely one tonight."
She said, I came to this place, full of dreams
Young and innocent and only 16
Now I wonder if it's too late to turn back.

So she runs, and she hides, and she dries the tears from
her eyes
And the night goes on, and on, and on

She's in the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

Perfect day, feels like Spring
Can see forever but you can't see anything
Now I wonder why they call it "paradise"

It's a crime, it's a shame
And they won't remember your name
And your life goes on, and on, and on

It's like the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
But she won't go home
So she's gotta run, run, run away

She came from a small town
So tired of getting pushed around
In the dark of the night, no one around
She'll run from this shabby town, yeah, yeah, yeah

It's a laugh, it's a game
Don't you let it drive you insane
Cause your life goes on, and on, and on....

It's like the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
But she won't go home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away

She's in the twilight zone (twilight zone)
Yeah, you gotta run, run, run away
It's such a long way home
When it hurts so bad you gotta run, run, run away
