Alive and Well Lyrics

(15)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Don't Know What I Want (4:52)
Pissed off - Got nothing to say,
Nothing to do
Why do I feel this way ?
Mixed up - The will to survive
But I can't tell if I'm dead or alive
A no win situation
What can you do ?
Of my own creation
I don't have a clue.

I don't know, don't know,
Don't know what I want
I don't know, don't know,
But I want it now
Right now !

Hang on - Don't know if I can
How much can I take
How much can I stand
Tied down - By things that I hide
I bite my lip I swallow my pride

Emptiness ivades me
Tries to push you around
Happiness escapes me
Here's what I found

I don't know, don't know,
Don't know what I want
I don't know, don't know,
But I want it now
Yes I do !

Don't wanna go but I gotta get away
Damned if you do
And damned if you don't
My cross to bear if I stay this way
Your power of will has left you alone,
All alone

Lookin' for an answer
I can't believe where I've been
Headed for disaster
The way that I see
2. Angry (5:22)
Not a lover not a fighter
Always out of my league
Sometimes maybe
Life ain't what it seems
There's a man in the back says
I gotta keep still
Someone at the front door
Says just do what you will
Do what you will !
My ears are ringing
With voices unclear
The sun is setting
Is it love or is it fear

I'm angry
I'm an angry young man
When love ain't enough
Angry - I'm an angry young man
When my heart's gettin tough
I'm an angry young man
Yes I am !

Running down the alley
On a hot summer's day
Fell in kinda dangerous-trouble
One step away
Well I'm walkin the walk
And I'm talkin the talk
But when it comes to lovin
I'm alone in the dark
Yes I am !
Runnin on empty under the gun
The pressure's building
The storm has just begun...

Angry
I'm an angry young man
When love ain't enough
Angry - I'm an angry young man
When my heart's gettin tough
Angry I'm an angry young man
When I can't get enough
I'm an angry young man
When push comes to shove
I'm an angry young man !

Give it to me !

I got emotional baggage
That I drag around
With all this dirty laundry
I gotta get outa town
Yes I do !
Say hello to my demons
I count then as friends
Ain't no denyin they'll be here til the end.

Cause I'm angry...

Angry, angry I feel hopeless
Angry angry, I love my face.
3. Alive and Well (5:03)
Headin down the wrong way
On a one way street
Lookin for love
but it ain't lookin for me
I feel like a fool
But what do you expect
Life is to short to waste on regrets

Look at me now
it must be hard to tell...

That I'm alive and well
I'm alive and well
And I'm here to tell
That I'm alive and well

Ten years later and it's all the same
No reason to bitch but I still complain
God only knows what God only knows
How can we find the key to it all

Lookin at me now
it must be hard to tell...

Look out !

Closer to the truth
the harder it seems
Hell if I know
what it's supposed to mean
With all the struggle that we endure
A little bit of faith could be the cure

Every time you think it's all
Going to hell... Remember...

I'm alive, you're alive
We are alive and well
And we’re here to tell
That we're alive and well
A little metal health
Is still alive and well

Get to the point, it won't take long
A little bit of faith is gonna carry on

The ride that we take is shorter
than it seems
The good things in life don't have to stay dreams.
4. The Ritual (6:07)
Call of the wild has been
Draggin me down
Spirit controls what's inside you
Tears flow like blood
in a hot open flame
A sign of the fire inside you
We gotta give it up - We can't resist
We gotta get away

[Chorus]

Time stands still
When you’re having fun
But you pay the price
When the day is done
Kindred spirits come one by one
When the day turns black
We will become-
The ritual

Down in a hole
When the sky closes in
And darkness will fall upon you
Walk into the light
To be free from the spell
Let the ritual surround you

Is it at the rainbow's end
Out in the cold
Is just a breath away

Time stands still
When you’re having fun
But you pay the price
When the day is done
Kindred spirits come one by one
When the day turns black
We will become-
The ritual

We couldn't give up
We still persist
We couldn't get away- no
5. Overworked and Underpaid (5:36)
I wake up - and try
and face another day
Here we are - just another link in the chain
It's so tough - to reach the top
From down on your knees
here we go on this road –
we’re only tryin to make ends meet
They throw you a bone
Take your piece of the pie
And reap what you've sawn
As we reach for the sky

Overworked and underpaid
Same old problem, a diffrent day
You bust your ass for
A minimum wage
It really sucks...your life away

Dead end job –
from the cradle to the grave
Break your back –
say hello to the American way
Black and blue - had my ass
Handed to me
The time card of life keeps
You runnin dead on your feet
You’re taxed to the max
And knee deep in debt
Your credit is trashed
Still we reach for the sky

Overworked and underpaid
Same old problem, a different day
You bust your ass
for a minimum wage
It really sucks...your life away

Gimme gimme, your power
And your greed
Come on come on,
I'll show you how it feels
Stand back, it cuts both ways
The table's turned
It's pay day
Get paid !
Paid-up !
6. Slam Dunk (Way to Go!) (3:23)
Slam dunk - way to go!
What do ya say, Let's rock 'n roll

Well I come to play and I play to win
Just say the word and I'll stuff it in
I'm gonna slam it all the way
Dunk it, what do you say

When the whistle blows I'm gonna fly the coup
Just pump me up and watch me shoot
Slam it - Touch the rim
Dunk it - Thrust it in

I won't sing no sweet romantic song
But I can do ya, I can do ya
You'll never know right from wrong
Here we go

Slam dunk way to go
What do you say, let's rock 'n roll
Slam dunk climb the pole
Drive through the middle and jam it home
Slam dunk
Take control, pick it up baby,
Let's do it some more
Pick it baby, Let's do it some more
That's right

I want two, four, six, eight, ten and more
A wham-bam shooter I love to score
Jam it - Bump and grind!
Pump it! -- Come on do it right!

Shake it o the left, fake it to the right
Dunk it in the bucket, it feels alright
Jam it -- bump and grind
Pump it.

Well, I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
I can double your trouble and triple your body heat
Just like this

Slam dunk way to go
What do you say, let's rock 'n roll
Slam dunk climb the pole
Drive through the middle and jam it home
Slam dunk
Take control, pick it up baby,
Let's do it some more
Pick it baby, Let's do it some more

Well, I'm built for comfort, I ain't built for speed
I can double your trouble and triple your body heat

Slam dunk way to go
What do you say, let's rock 'n roll
Slam dunk climb the pole
Drive through the middle and jam it home
Slam dunk
Take control, pick it up baby,
Let's do it some more
Slam dunk way to go
Go, go let's go
Slam dunk
Take control, pick it up baby,
Let's do it some more
Pick it up baby,
Let's do it some more
7. Too Much Information (4:28)
Coming over the airwaves
Injected through the brain
freeway killer with an audience
Gonna share the pain
It's so insane - Oh yeah

A lot of psycho babble
On the evening news
Put your headline story
Where the sun don't shine

'Cause it's too much information
I don't need
Too much information
For me

There's a porno princess
On the computer screen
Makes the access easy
Turn your children sleezy
Don't you know what I mean

In the morning papers
Half the people can't read
You're desensitized, anestized,
Can't tell the truth from the lies

Feeling kind of anxious –
Like a lunatic on the loose
Too much information is the food that I consume
Instant problem and stress
All for free
Plus tons of bad news coming
Special delivery
8. Against the Wall (4:46)
I can't see the forest from the trees
Headin' straight for a catastrophe
One step forward two steps back
Is a heart attack

I'm going' heard first
No warning signs
Out in the danger zone
Every single night

Throw my heart against the wall
Don't know where I'm going
Take a chance and win it all
Breakin' all the rules
Let's throw caution to the wind
Don't know where it's blowing
Throw my heart against
Heart against
Heart against the wall

My head is spinnin
I can't see straight
And that's when I'm havin
A real good day
When the same two muscles
Ignore the brain
You gotta follow your heart
And shive the fate

I got more love than sense
And that ain't no defense
I'm gonna hurt myself
I've been a fool before
And then I closed the door
And walked into the wall
Yes I did !
9. Highway to Hell (AC/DC cover) (3:59)
Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to hell

No stop signs, speed limit
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel, gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me round
Hey satan, payed my dues
Playing in a rocking band
Hey momma, look at me
I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the highway to hell
(don't stop me)

And I'm going down, all the way down
I'm on the highway to hell
10. Sign of the Times 1999 (4:53)
Well I have street sense radar
Ooh, is supposed be news
You better lock up your daughters
You never know when we're due

Good news, bad news
It's all the same
Addicts on main streets
They give us the blame

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
We're a sign of the times
Having fun ain't no crime
We're a sign of the times
Having fun all the time, yeah

Great impersonators
We broke all the rules
We laugh with our masks on
The joke is on you

You're getting furry
It does you no good
It's the same old story
It's a human zoo

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
We're a sign of the times
Having fun ain't no crime
We're a sign of the times
Having fun all the time, yeah

My, my, my, my, yeah

Hey!

I see a sign up ahead
Got it's lights flashing red
I can see you're the same
These are the words that I read

Long live rock and roll (Roll!)
Long live rock and roll (Roll!)
Long live rock and roll
It's gonna save your soul

Good news, bad news
It's all the same
Addicts on main streets
Please, please give us a break

Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
We're a sign of the times
Having fun ain't no crime
We're a sign of the times
Having fun all the time

Hey!
We're just a sign of the times
We're just a sign of the times
We're just a sign of the times, yeah
We're a sign of the times
Having fun all the time
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
11. Don't Wanna Let You Go 1999 (4:52)
Everybody wants to have a girl like you
But I'm the one and it's right
Somebody comes along and says they play your song
My wish becomes his delight
He'll try to take you from me

Don't wanna let you go
Not gonna get far from me
Don't wanna let you go
Your special your one of a kind (so...)
Don't wanna let you go
Some things money can't buy

Your smiles pasted
My time is wasted
You say I told you so, told you so
You can't tell lies from facts
He'll try to hold you back
You make the tension grow, grow and grow
He'll try to take you from me

Don't wanna let you go
Your not gonna get far from me
Don't wanna let you go
Your special your one of a kind (so...)
Don't wanna let you go
Some things money can't buy...

Don't wanna let you go

Don't wanna let you go

Everybody wants to have a girl like you
But I'm the one and it's right
And somebody comes along and says he plays your song
My wish becomes his delight
He'll try to take you from me

Don't wanna let you go
Your not gonna get far from me
Don't wanna let you go
Your special your one of a kind (so...)
Don't wanna let you go
Some things money can't buy...

Don't wanna let you go
Your special your one of a kind (so...)
Don't wanna let you go
Some things money can't buy...

Don't wanna let you go
Don't wanna let you go
Don't wanna let you go
He'll try to take you away from me
Don't wanna let you go, let you go, oh no no no (yeah)
12. The Wild and the Young 1999 (5:32)
Times are changing
Nothing stays the same
For this jukebox generation

Adhere to fashion
Like computer games
Modern day communication

The news hard to take
Will fade tomorrow
They are the strong
They'll survive

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Yeah
Hah!

Roaring passion
With no guilt or shame
It's accepting education, yeah!

Misbehaving
No regrets, no blame
With a bold kind of sophistication

So close to the edge
And high on the wire
They are not wrong
They're alive

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Ha!

So close to the edge
And high on the wire
They are not wrong
They're alive

Look out!

Wild, wild
The wild and the
Young, y-y-y-young

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run

The wild and the young
They all have their dreams
The wild and the young
They've got to be free
The sun never sets
For souls on the run
The wild and the young

Oh yeah

The wild and the young
Oh
