ROBINSON CRUSOE IN NEW YORK (J.O`Neill)

Survive 4 3 2 1 Shipwrecked sailors in a 4 letter show Based on a book by Daniel Defoe Where the lights are high and the cotton is low And all God`s children are ready to go New York New York`s a wonderful town The Bronx is up And the Battery`s down The people ride in a hole in the ground Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Well I`m sick of being a square in a Rubik Cube Sick of seeing the world through a cathode ray tube Where they`re building schools on a nuclear mud And the price of oil is paid in blood Manhattan`s like a fairground in the dark So I`ll find a little island in Central Park Plant a few seeds and grow a few beans and Maybe make the cover of Time Magazine Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe I`ve a bootleg heart and an electronic eye Well I`m over 21 I`m not ready to die Robinson Crusoe in New York Robinson Crusoe in New York Old New York`s a wonderful town Old New York`s a wonderful town Blah blah blah Robinson who? The city The city The city Old New York`s a wonderful town Old New York`s a wonderful town Old New York`s a wonderful town Old New York`s a wonderful town

BULLETPROOF HEART (J.O`Neill)

Some say this is a dangerous place Dangerous women lipstick mace Men disappear without a trace Stay anonymous hide your face In this town you`d need a Bulletproof Shatterproof heart When I came here I was innocent Soon found out what trouble ment Now I regret the times I`ve spent In your towerblocks and tenements In this town you`d need a Bulletproff heart In this town you`d need a Bulletproff Shatterproof heart Watch your step Don`t open your door Watch your step They want to settle a score Watch your step Don`t open your door Open your door Some may say this is a dangerous place Searchlights circles Watch this space Men disappear without a trace Anonymous faces lost in the maze In this town you`d need a Bulletproff heart In this town you`d need a Bulletproof Shatterproof heart In this town you`d need a Bulletproff heart In this town you`d need a Bulletproof Shatterproof heart Shatterproof heart Shatterproof heart In this town In this town In this town In this town In this town

THE ART OF SELF DECEPTION (J.O`Neill/Burns/Crichton)

Yeah Ohhh There`s a time for getting high A time to be alone Be alone A time to wrap yourself Round someone else And bring it on home You`ve been deceived Oh but that wasn`t the intention I was deceived In a world of my own invention Self deception ohhh In an age of love Kalishnikovs and Microwave snow Uhuh We`ve got our hands On the wheel And our heads in the clouds And a ticket to go Ohh we`ve got a ticket to go You`ve been deceived Oh but that wasn`t the intention No You don`t believe And now now Love`s not worth a mention Self deception ohhh Well how long To trip down this ancient street How long To stumble in this history Uhuh Well there`s a fool beside you Trapped inside his sheet A slave A slave to his grand illusion Well We all believe In a love without conception Now We all believe In a love beyond convention Maybe that`s self deception I don`t know No Baby now Bring it on home Won`t you bring it on home Bring it on home Bring it Bring it Bring it Bring it Bring it Baby won`t you bring it on home Won`t you bring it on home Bring it Bring it Bring it Bring it Baby won`t you bring it home Won`t you bring it on home Bring it Bring it Bring it Bring it Won`t you bring it on home

I WANT YOU (J.O`Neill)

Well I want to paint your picture With that great look in your eyes And I want to write a song so gentle It could make you cry I want the world And all it`s charms And nothing else will do And Hey I want you Well I want a roaring city And I want a healing sun And I want a magic wilderness Where we could be as one I want the world And all it`s charms And nothing else will do And Hey I want you I want you Well I want to be you soldier And I want to be your friend And I want to be your dancing fool And dance you till the end I want the world And all it`s charms And nothing else will do And Hey And Hey Hey I want you I want you

JUST CAN`T BE BOTHERED (J.O`Neill/Burns/Crichton/Soave/Rankine)

I`ve been outside the law Breaking my heart on the wheel Watching the clock on the wall True feeling I have to conceal On days like this I`d like to hideaway Like a Lazy dog in the sun Or call me up and have a long discussion About the meaning of fun `Cos we Just can`t be bothered `Cos we Just can`t be bothered at all Life`s emotional wounds They can take their time to heal But somehow we don`t have to talk You know instinctively just How I feel Someday we`ll hit that road When we hear the gypsy call And runaway like summer children Looking for nothing at all `Cos we Just can`t be bothered `Cos we Just can`t be bothered at all Just can`t be bothered at all Someday we`ll hit that road When we hear the gypsy call Then I realise how much younger How much younger `Cos we Just can`t be bothered `Cos we Just can`t be bothered at all Just can`t be bothered at all Can`t be bothered at all Can`t be bothered at all Can`t be bothered at all

CAMERAS AND COLLESEUMS (J.O`Neill)

Gypsy girl 8 years old Dipped my pocket For a piece of gold Her brother and sister Grabbed my soul With their large Dark eyes Wandering through streets Of dreams Master criminals In dark blue machines Cameras and Collesseums Cameras and Collesseums

ONE INCH OF HEAVEN (J.O`Neill/Burns)

I was in love with the Thought of perfection Yes my world was just a Skyscraper of dreams Then I was crushed To the floor By a feeling So strong So strange I had to scream There`s a rock In my heart That can`t be broken Now there`s One inch of heaven That is open for me As I walk down a vacant street With rain in my eyes Call across the coal dark water Waiting to see Waiting to see The sunrise Heyyh Ohhh I was the King Of the cynical line Nothing was too dark Or too cruel Now I believe that there`s Something worth trying for Lover since you`ve chosen This poor fool There`s a rock in my heart That can`t be broken Now there`s one inch of heaven That is open for me As I walk down Jamaica Street With rain in my eyes Call across the coal dark water Waiting to see Waiting to see The sunrise Heyyh Ohhh Funny how you wake up And start to see Something in your eyes Made a new man of me Where would I be Where would I be There`s a rock in my heart That can`t be broken Now there`s one inch of heaven That is open for me As I walk down Jamaica Street With rain in my eyes Call across the coal dark water Waiting to see Waiting to see The sunrise Heyyh Ohhh Oh you know There`s just no way of knowing I`m walking down the street And I just don`t know Where I`m going Out to the river River flowing to the sea Big black river Rolling on out to the sea Coal dark river Washing away Mirror Mystery river There`s no reason for me To go home There`s no reason for me To go home Go home There`s a rock in my heart That can`t be broken Now there`s one inch of heaven That is open for me

THIS IS SERIOUS/JOHN THE REVELATOR (J.O`Neill)

There`s a murmur Goin` round About you and a tower of lies As the night Door sounds I turn over and start to cry This is serious I don`t want to lose you now This is serious I don`t want to lose you now In the morning You`re cold As though you just came inside It`s already Plain to see You`re losin` your own self pride This is serious I don`t want to lose you now This is serious I don`t want to lose you now It is conflict That you`re after A bitter show of tears So you can get angry And then disappear This is serious I don`t want to lose you now This is serious I don`t want to lose you now All alone in the night With bad dreams for company In the dark I make my mind up To fight To run with you all the way This is serious I don`t want to lose you now This is serious I don`t want to lose you now If you calculate a future Doing what you`re doing You better realise you hold a No win hand it`s a Silent road to ruin A temple of illusion Somehow Let me help you make you understand This is serious I don`t want to lose you now This is serious I don`t want to lose you now It`s so serious I don`t want to lose you now I don`t want to lose you now Don`t want to lose you now Don`t want to lose you now Now Now you said baby What now Lose you now Tell me loser now........

AFRAID TO LOVE (J.O`Neill)

Stormy winds Over the sea I can feel your heart Beating around me But I`m caught inside I believe in nothing Afraid Afraid to love Acid sky over the rainbow Children`s eyes Staring from windows I believe in you But I`m scared To trust you Afraid Afraid to love I know now we`re going nowhere But please Wake me when we`re there Baby in your arms I should`ve died Afraid Afraid to love

ROSANNE (J.O`Neill/Burns)

The house was filling up Like it was New Year With friends of mine I`ve never met before And in among The singing and drinking I saw you standing Silent by the door And in your eyes I see your heart Is breaking Yes in your eyes I`m still your secret boy For we were young And we were only playing We thought we were immune Inside our joy Rosanne Rosanne You married into money And to trouble Trying to escape This world we knew Where everything`s decide By your station You wanted to believe It wasn`t true And then I heard the whispers And the stories Oh how your public Analysed your pain It seems to me we all Derive some pleasure From watching someone Rise then fall again Rosanne Rosanne I heard about the others That you went through You cannot keep a secret In this town Where everyone is friendly To your face but Don`t challenge the laws That they lay down A woman on her own Can be a victim A woman on her own Can always cry It looks to me that you Could use a friend now The night has certain needs To satisfy Rosanne Rosanne Rosanne Rosanne Is crying

ELECTRIC STORM (J.O`Neill/Burns)

"I know why they call it electricity Because it`s so tricky So tricky So tricky Tricky Tricky" Tears are just a drop in the ocean But it dosen`t matter anyway Well if the ocean fades away We can all wave bye bye I tremble like a fish out of water Twisting on a killing floor Well I can dance away these blues My microphone is live I don`t have the answers But I But I`ll take my chances And I`ll Watch the way the wind blows And I`ll shoot the clouds that form Ohhh In the electric storm Ohhh In the electric storm I live on the electric mountain With 100 000 other slaves And we dance away the blues In catacomb like caves Following Following the golden rule From the tattered pages of the Ashcan School Falling for the ones we fall for And waiting for the sun I don`t have the answers But I But I`ll take my chances And I`ll Watch the way the wind blows And I`ll shoot the clouds that form Ohhh In the electric storm Ohhh In the electric storm "I know why they call it electricity" I don`t have the answers But I But I`ll take my chances And I`ll Watch the way the wind blows And I`ll shoot the clouds that form Ohhh In the electric storm Ohhh In the electric storm

WHEN THE NIGHT COMES (J.O`Neill)

On the morning of or love We could do no wrong And we were so young and so free That there was no doubting Yes we came to live in this place From the shoreline to the town Now the lights go on in the West When the night comes down Well we came with nothing but hope And busy dreams And we built a castle of glass With our great machines And we grew so strong and so proud In our rooms above the ground Now we talk ourselves to sleep When the night comes down Now the boys are marching tonight To an ancient tune And the boys are melting their lives In a kitchen spoon And the King of Love is locked up In machine gun downtown Another sacrificial cup When the night comes down When at last my coat comes off And the dust is dead I can take your hands so soft When the day is ended And we`ll try to set ourselves free From this unreal city sound And you`ll lie with me my love When the night comes down
