When I was a young boy I pretended I had a job
My daddy said 'Pretty woman, Mama married into the mob'
I dreamed one day I'd be livin' off the system for free
But dreams come true, honey; welcome to my reality

And I sleep all day and wake myself in the shadows
(Time to get up, gotta get up)
Gotta catch that train by midnight for the

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday 9 to 5 shift is over

I didn't have a penny
No, I couldn't cut a check with a blade
I used to have the shakes
But now they're good at getting me played

I sleep all day but I break my back in the moonlight
(never enough, it's never enough)
Gotta cash that check by midnight for the

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday 9 to 5 shift is over

Night work
Gotta do the night work
Punch that clock and break all the numbers
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Weekday 9 to 5 shift is over

And when the whistle blows
And your body can't take it no more
You gotta keep on movin', remember
This is what you asked for

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-night work
Na-na-na-na-na-na-night work
Night work
Gotta do the night work
Night work gotta do the night work
Weekday 9 to 5 shift is over

I gave passes to the boarder, gave my bags straight to the porter
Gave my Zippo as a guiding light
I see smoke upon the water, said the sailor to the daughter
Well I think I need a rubber tonight
And with everybody watching from the top of the sky
A neon bolt of lightening hit me where I found my stride

I found a whole new way to love you
I've got a big surprise
I can't see your eyes but I think you'll like it too
I found a whole new way to love you
My sneak up from behind is gonna blow your mind
But if not this time, we're through

It gets lonesome in the darkness even when I dance with partners
With the DJ playing Leather and Lace
I'll take anything you give me 'cause I know that God forgives me
It's no accident expensive taste
So when everyone got home I got your tail between my legs
We can talk about relationships but there's better things to fill your head with

I found a whole new way to love you
I've got a big surprise
I can't see your eyes but I think you'll like it too
I found a whole new way to love you
My sneak up from behind is gonna blow your mind
But if not this time, we're through

Love and leave it, you take it when you need it
You gotta give and take, ignores the breaks
And baby, they're are not enough ways
You gotta gimme some, get some
Ooh, I found a whole new way to love you

Ooooooh I've found a whole new way to love you
Ooooooh I've found a whole new way to love you

I found a whole new way to love you
I've got a big surprise
I can't see your eyes but I think you'll like it too
I found a whole new way to love you
My sneak up from behind is gonna blow your mind
But if not this time, we're through

. . .


You can see that you're being surrounded
From every direction
And love was just something you found
To add to your collection
It used to seem we were number one
But now it sounds so far away
I had a dream we were running from
Some blazing arrows yesterday
You said, "Fight fire with fire
Fire with fire
Fire with fire
Through desire, desire -sire, desire
Through your desire."
Now the city blacks out the sun
That you know is rising
You can show me the work that you've done
Your fears have been disguising
Is it just me or is everyone
Hiding out between the lines
What will we be when we come undone
Just a simple meeting of the minds?
And we'll fight fire with fire
Fire with fire
Fire with fire
Through desire, desire -sire, desire
Through your desire
We'll fight fire with fire
Fire with fire
Fire with fire
Through desire, desire -sire, desire
Through your desire
Underneath your skies
There's a million lights
Burning brightly just like fireflies
It's cold and heaven surrounds you from every direction
'Cause there's someone behind every hand
That you've made a connection
And now we're free to be number one
The morning isn't far away
I had a dream we were holding on
And tomorrow has become today, become today
And we'll fight fire with fire
Fire with fire
Fire with fire
Through desire, desire -sire, desire
Through your desire
We'll fight fire with fire
Fire with fire
Fire with fire
Through desire, desire -sire, desire
Through your desire

Dancing on the speakers, are you peaking with tweakers
Bigger, tanner breeders on the scene
The night don't last forever, so get your shit together
Open arms are never what they seem

Oh oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh

I don't need a doctor just a simple love concocter
To slide to my side so civilly
No talk of commitment
When I receive a shipment
Oh I need express delivery

Any which way, any which way,
You better take me, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way,
You better take me, any which way you can

Ya' don't need reservations
No identification
To give me your relations
Sting me like a bee
Oh I want you to funk me
Your battleship has sunk me
You dip me and you dunk me
Set my body free

Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can

You know baby
When I was taking my pantyhose out of their egg this evening
I thought: I'm going to find that man that is the right shade of bottle tan
A man that smells like cocoa butter and cash
Take me anyway you like it
In front of the fireplace
In front of your yacht
In front of my parents
I don't give a damn baby, just take me

Any which way, any which way, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way you can

Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can

Ah any which way you can
Ah any which way you can

Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can
Any which way, any which way
You better take me, any which way you can

Any which way, any which way
(Any which way, any which way, any which way you can)
You better take me, any which way you can
(Any which way, any which way you can)
Any which way, any which way
(Any which way, any which way, any which way you can)
You better take me, any which way you can
(Any which way, any which way you can)

You're digging deeper
Love is a creeper
I know the reaper
On a first name basis
It ain't Steven
It isn't Adam
I got some apples if you want 'em
You can grab 'em

And what I really want to do tonight
Is toughen you up

Harder you get
Caught in my sweat
Never to wet
To want it all
Beatin' my drum
Faster you're done
Can't have one
You want them all

Hell is my heaven
A loaded weapon
Don't point that thing at me
Unless you plan to shoot
My room is darker
Than any colour
I'm not your baby and I'll never be
You mother

And what I really want to do tonight
Is toughen you up

Harder you get
Caught in my sweat
Never to wet
To want it all
Beatin' my drum
Faster you're done
Can't have one
You want them all

You're sensitive to light
We're conjuring the night
You stand up with pride
Attempting to walk
You won't escape alive
Of what's become your life
Stop crying like a child
You got what you want

And what I really want to do tonight
Is toughen you up

Harder you get
Caught in my sweat
Never to wet
To want it all
Beatin' my drum
Faster you're done
Can't have one
You want them all

. . .


One two three four give me more
'Cause I think we're going down
What you need it for?
Pass the wealth around
We're going right back to the borderline
Now you should save yourself
I'm on my own
No use to no one else

'Cause I--every time I think I'm fine
You keep on dreaming up
A hundred different ways to cause hysteria
Am I insane, am I blind?
I just can't seem to trust
Too many regulations coming back at you

We're running out
Of money
Of love
Of luck
We're running out
Of language
Of fame
Of bread
We're running out

Something tells me that I'm fine
But when I get enough
Another one--wouldn't be too much
And still I chew it up and spit it out
It's too big to swallow
Got enough for everyone
So here we go

Ooh, let's see how far that we have run
before this gig is over
I hear the warning sign
On everybody's stereo
Do you love, what you like
What would you do for more?
You kept on dancing underneath the burning floor

We're running out
Of money
Of each other
Of confidence
We're running out
Of drugs
Of patience
Of air
We're running out

We're running out
Of money
Of love
Of luck
We're running out
Of fame
Of language
Of bread
We're running out
Of money
Of each other
Of confidence
We're running out
Of dugs
Of patience
Of air
We're running out

. . .


I just need to hear that song again
Oh there I was standing all alone
When you came dancing
Very very near me
Why'd you have to go and disappear?

And if they play that song maybe
You'll come dancing back to me
I can't remember any words
There's a verse and after it goes

Something like this(goes)
Something like this(goes)
Over and over like a robot you go

No I don't feel like going home
Oh, there's no chance
I'm leaving here solo
How will I ever find
A way to track you down?
The floor is where I'll stay and

Ask somebody if they see
Someone shaking tambourines
Two feet that never touch the ground
Searching til I've found your moves go

Something like this(goes)
Something like this(goes)
Over and over like a robot you go

I'm so lonely I could die
I've got someone like you in mind
Oh to love me 'stead of passing by
When my heart beats it goes
Something like this(goes)
Something like this(goes)
Over and over like a robot you go

. . .


You got my good good lovin'
Within your grasp
Don't let it throw you
There's a million million
Ways to skin this cat
So let me show you

I got a brand new hook
To hang your hat
Tell me baby baby just where you at
There's a million ways
Ways to skin this cat
So let me show you

And if you get it right
Get it right
I'll love you til my ninth life

My beauty was a beast
Before I got to know you
This kitten has a lion's roar
And she will roll you
You're not the first tom
To walk my floor
So get around the block
A few times more
And keep scratch scratchin'
At my back door
And I will show you

That if you get it right
Get it right
I'll love you til my ninth life

Come here kitty kitty
Skin this cat

. . .


And when you get tired
Of holding me tight
Remember it's how I stay alive
When we come down
Off our high for the night
You don't let go

And if you're feeling too close
Then we're doing all right
Got you under my clothes
Take you out tonight
Take you out tonight

You're so skin tight
You're never close enough
You're so skin tight
Wrap me in your love
So skin tight

Nothing else sliding
Between you and me
What's symbiotic will always be
Surrounding each other for eternity
And we won't let go

So it gets a little hot
But the temperature's right
I'll take everything you got
Cause you're always in my sight
Yeah you're always in my sight

You're so skin tight
You're never close enough
You're so skin tight
Wrap me in your love
So skin tight

Anything less
And you'd be
Too far away
I can't peel it back
Can't peel it back
Can't peel it back

Cause your skin tight
Fit me like a glove
Skin tight
Wrap me in your love

. . .


Oh, I need a witness to see the mess I've made
There's a broken lampshade, ashtrays, burnt floors, beds unmade
Eyes sleeping if you are dream, dream of what I'm doing
To you, undo you, I'm through with you until I need a round of
Everytime I spend myself it never runs too low, woah
I can't escape my need for

Sex and violence
Never meant you see them hand in hand
One is with the other
The softest touches, deeper than the ocean
Give it to me faster, feel it, feel it

Sex and violence
Who is gonna make you cry?
(Sex and violence)

Oh, I was a real man stealing all the trade
I was strong and self-made, well-paid, so groomed, persuasive
You were walking home that night, too kind to be illusive
Where do you live? What do you give? Who are you with?
And how you getting home?
Does everybody know right now exactly where you are? Woah
Step inside's a step too far but

Sex and violence
Hit me with a lover, burns so bright
And one is just the other
Sweetest tastes, never gonna leave you
Even when it hurts you, breathe it, breathe it

Violence, violence

. . .


Whoo Whoo (x6)

Do it now

Whoo Whooo (x4)

I was a young girl
Knew next to nothing
Livin' in the suburbs
And my heart was lustin'
For a new way
And a new sound
Crawled up all my hangups to the underground

I had a breakthrough
I had to shake you
It couldn't come through
To see my point of view
I had a breakthrough
It was my debut
It did offend you,
Well it means something to me

Night life
Beneath the surface
Night life
Some say it's worthless
High life
It's a state of being
Inside
It's a song your singing
Night life
If there's no spirit
Night life
Then don't go near it
Night life
To have it over
Inside
You can find your life in the night life

Whoo Hooo (x4)

If you are feeling
Like you don't have nothing
Like the pressure in a cooker
With your head in the oven
There's a new way
So come on down
Life in limbo will be over
When you're underground

You need a breakthrough
You need to make do
You need to come to
A brand new point of view
You need to breakthrough
And then get wise to
All that is taboo
Then you'll be something to see

Night life
Beneath the surface
Night life
Some say it's worthless
High life
It's a state of being
Inside
It's a song your singing
Night life
It's a heart you're racing
Night life
It's a videotasing
It's a catch you're making
Inside
You can find your life in the night life

It's beneath the surface
Some say it's worthless
It's a look you're seeing
It's a rush you're feeling
It can break your spirit
If you love that feeling
It's your back it's breaking
Are you ready for the
Night life
Night life (x2)

High life
Low life
Inside

Night life (x3)

High life
Low life
Inside

Find your way to the high in the night life
You can find your life in the night life

. . .


At the doors of Babylon, You are my Zion,
Pacing Tiger, The keeper's cage,
Invisible light shoots from your eyes,
A sign I can see from my high rise,

Another castle crumbles, another monkey falls,
Just open up your joy and let the sailors climb the walls,
I thought I saw you laughing 10 feet in the air,
It doesn't matter if they touch you where because you can give me...

An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light to keep me alive oh,
Looking for the tension
I can feel it with the fingers in my mind...

Opiate Utopia is hotter by the hour,
I found you a flower in a field,
My invention, among the tired, among the poor,
Among the broken, the huddled masses,
Its your time...

You answer to a new name that changes all the time,
I'll call you anything you want if I can say it's mine.
This story's never ending.
My footprint's been erased.
Here you are, kiss of Evil,
I see your mouth, Or is it really...

An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light uh-oh,
An Invisible light, An invisible light to keep me alive oh,
Something really gets dimension,
Can't you feel it bend your sense of time...

Babylon,
Where bricks of water and diamonds tower,
Sailor's lust and swagger lazing in the moon's beams,
Who's laser gaze penetrates this sparkling theater of excess and strobed lights,
Painted Whores. Sexual Gladiators. Fiercely old Party Children.
All waked from their slumber to debut the Baccara.
Come to the Light! Into the Light! The Invisible Light...
