in the penn. (A,B7,E,A,B7,E) When I don't know then I go...eenie meeny miney moe, it's the most reliable source of information. My mother told me so.
Just turned on my television set like to see what's goin' on. I get all the latest developments makes me feel like I belong. Looks like they had another kidnapping people takin' what
they don't own. Makin' the family all upset destroyin' their happy home. I wish we were livin' in better times when people did just what they said. Instead they tell you what you
want to hear, figure it's how to get ahead.
13. SILENT AS A LAMB (vocals DEBI RAVEN)
(E,Am,E,Am,G,F,E...Am,E) As silent as a lamb being led with the condemned, he raises not his voice, it's done by his own choice. My heart cries out in the land, he's silent as a lamb.
They put on him a load, sent him down a winding road, the burden of the cross, to save all who are lost. My heart cries out in the land, he's silent as a lamb.
(F,E,F,G) The proof is enduring for we still know it today. It's always with us no one can ever take it away.
The deed is finally done, there's a curtain now torn. A cry to heaven at the end, sent to hell and back again. My heart cries out in the land, he's silent as a lamb.

got to have some of those pretty things.
(Am,Em,Am,Em,F,G,F,G7,C) Why do I have to work so hard. You know sometimes I get so tired. Look what she's putting me thru, I do the job I got to do.
(C7,F,G,F,G,F,G7,C) OK, OK I'll do what you say. OK you can have it your own way, cause I got to have some of those pretty things.
I got to have some of those pretty things. Pretty things...like you.
2. ROOM WITH A VIEW (vocals JAMES SHUBIN)
(D7,Am,D7,Am,D7,Am,D7,E,Am,A/Ab,A/G,A/Ab,A/G,D7,E,Am) It was just another morning, like any other. The hustle and bustle of the neighborhood, ramping up for the day.
Hey it's Mrs Smith goin out on her early morning walk, think I'll have a cup of coffee to get me ready for the day. Then I'll be on my way....but what they don't know is, I've got a
room with a view inside my mind, a room with a view inside my mind...no one can take it away...not even if they tried.
Hey there it's Mr Johnson I see he got himself a new boat. Takes up the whole driveway but that's OK. There's that crazy lady pickin up the morning paper, lookin' over at me
like she's got something bad she wants to say, think I'll be on my way.
Early morning traffic can be a real pain sometimes, everyone tryin to find their own way. I think common courtesy took on an early vacation, but that's all right, I know I'll get there
anyway, you know I'm on my way.
Finally got to my destination, I was beginning to think it would take all day. Time to clock it, check on my daily schedule. Get some things accomplished...so I know I'll get my pay.
Now I'm on my way.

4. PIERCE THE SHADOWS (vocals DEBI RAVEN)
(C,G,F,C,F,Fm,C) As the sun is setting in the west, and the day has finally come to rest, I reflect on what I have at home and I know I'm not alone.
When the day has put me thru the test, when I find I'm not my very best, I reflect on what I have at home and I know I'm not alone.
(F,Fm,C) I can see right thru the shadows, together we can pierce the darkest nite. I can see right thru the shadows.
After all that has been said and done, and you know I am the only one. You can see just what you have at home, and you know you're not alone.
5. TOO FAST (vocals NEIL SMITH)
(Am,A/Ab,A/G,A/Ab,A/G) Things are happenin' too fast, happenin' too fast,happenin' too fast. I need to find a love that lasts.
(D7,Am,D7,E,Am) You go on a bus, you go on a train. You get there by car or maybe even on an airplane...things are happenin' too fast.
I need to slow it all down, I don't want to lose control. You need to jump on, get on board, don't miss the last train.
Don't want to be stuck here for the rest of your life with no one else but your self to blame. Things are happenin' too fast.

My girl, don't know who she's with tonite, just can't keep track anymore. My girl, she's fit to be tied.
(D,A,D,A,D,E,B7,E) She's puttin' on her lipstick, fixin' up her eyes, splashin' on some perfume for the boys. She wants to be a big surprise, she's fit to be tied.
8. THE MONSTER (vocals DEBI RAVEN)
(C,Am,Em,F,Am,G,C) Don't lose your head over nothing, bring out the monster. All you need to know is I can protect you. Don't lose control, bring out the monster.
You can dream all your dreams, scheme all your schemes, walk a thin line between visions and reality.
(F,Em,G,C,Am,G7,F,G7,C) What you see is not really there. There's a trick behind every puzzle and illusion. There's no way she can take my place, she's still a monster.
Don't be afraid, let me protect you from the monster.

(C,F,C,F,G,C) Let's put you thru the ringer, let's see what comes out. We can find out what you really look like, there won't be any room for doubt.
As a spider goes along the wall with a purpose to survive, you rise above the water when you hold your head up high.
(F,G,C.......F,Em,G) I'm movin' on, I'm movin' on, goin' to higher ground. You've changed but you're still the same, I've changed too but I'm not the one to blame.

Heavy bass version. see NEW WAVES #6.
2. PRISONER (vocals NEIL SMITH)
( C,Em,G,C.....C7.) You walk the streets at nite, in the morning draw the lite. You're a prisoner, a slave to the nite. Weeks go by, into years. You can cry but there's no one
to dry your tears, you're a prisoner, a slave to the nite.
(F,Em,G,C) Where is the freedom to make it all disappear, you didn't want to end up alone right here....but lately you're not sure how much longer you can go on.
(F.Em,G,F,G7,F,C) Time after time leading you away from something you need, you saw it today. You're a prisoner, a slave to the nite---what are you gonna do to make things right?
3. THE RIDER (vocals DENNIS GURWELL)
(E,A,B7,E) (E,G,F,E,Dm,Am,Dm,E) There's a rider comin' over the hill, do you see him, can you tell? Will he bring something to believe in, or will he leave destruction from hell?
The rider from hell. He comes to steal all your hope and what you believe in. He wants to take the things you love. It's for sure you can't trust him. It's for sure he's not from above.
He rides into town like a man on a mission, he looks real good, he looks real bad. He smiles and makes you happy, when he's done you'll be sad.
He lives his life like the end is coming, with the power to make men kill. World peace will be forgotten, you can't stand against his will.
You can run, you can hide, but he'll find you. There's nowhere, nowhere to go. Better stand and not be afraid, maybe then he'll leave you alone.

5. STOP SIGN (vocals JAMES SHUBIN)
(A7,D7,A7,D7) (A7,D7,A7,D7,G,E,B7,E) I didn't see that stop sign, I didn't know there was a red light. Now I'm struck with a bad situation, gotta stay out of sight.
She looked real good when I walked in the room. I gotta say she looked just right. Now there's someone watchin' my every move, gotta stay out of sight.
(A,E,A,B7,E,A,E,B7,A,E) In retrospect I don't think she was really that hot. In fact looking back I'm not sure what it is she's got.
I don't know what I'm gonna do this morning....hope I get off with just a warning.

Don't tell your mother,father,sister,brother...what's goin' on. We'll have us a picnic, well have some fun.
(G,E,G,E,A,E,B7,A,E) Some would lead me to address, the state of my unhappiness. Has to do with missing you, whether daytime, nightime, or something in between, I'm missing you.

Walking around in your tight blue jeans, driven' my crazy, make me come apart at the seam. I need to find a new way to get hold of myself, try not to come off crazy, try not to look like
I need a lot of help. (A,B7,E).
(A,E,A,B7, D,A,E,D,A,E,A,B7,D,A,E) Every time I see you it makes me smile...then you're checkin' out all the other guys in town, it makes me cry...oh yeah.

12. TOM-BOY BABY (vocals JAMES SHUBIN)
(C,C7) (C,C7, F,G,C,G,Em,Am,G) It's too early to be sad about it, but I think we should look ahead. It's too early to forget about it, but we need to use our head.
The writing's on the wall, looks like we're headed for a fall. My little tom-boy baby, the one who likes to play, come out and play with me, we can play all day.
I never get tired of being with you, I think about it all the time, we have so much fun together, you always make me feel so fine.
You look real good to me everyday, I wish I had the time, to get to know you so much better, I know I could make you mine.
