"Curse Of The Hidden Mirror" (2001)

Dance On Stilts Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

On the outside I'm in the high rise
Headin' for a meeting, shining up my greeting
See me in a white suit with a mirror tie

And you you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

And on the inside, I'm on my knees
Crawling an aching mile, living on the Bowery
Too sick to stand, to try to understand

But you you-you-you
Elevate me
You lift me high, just high enough to see
You you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

And no one suspects a thing
They're all hiding just the same
They ache for an outbound train
And the wheels stopped turning in their brains

And you you-you-you
Elevate me
You lift me high, just high enough to see
You you-you-you
Elevate me
You throw off the shame
And you
You throw off the shame
And you dance on stilts with me

You elevate me
You elevate me
C'mon baby, dance on stilts, dance on stilts with me
You elevate me
You elevate me

Showtime Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

Showtime...
Showtime...

People tell me I'm not getting younger in this place
The other guy in this room I'm sick of his face
And there's a guy who's watching me, it really is a drag
Hassling me on my way to work making license tags

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here...
Showtime...
Showtime...

Eight long years to do, I've just finished two
These walls are a little bit tight
I'd rather be with you
Good behavior and I'll be out on parole
Or maybe I'll bust outta here, I'm losing self control

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here...

Well i was young and in love, i pulled the perfect crime
You blew the whistle on me baby, and now I'm doing time
I guess you never loved me, you used me like a tool
And that guy out there with you, must think that I'm a fool

But you ain't seen the last of me yet
I'll find you baby, on that you can bet
I didn't mind the risk of a life of crime
When I get out of here
Showtime
Showtime
Showtime
Showtime

The Old Gods Return Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

Now is the time the moon is in alignment
With the unknown zodiac, the untold sign
Of the fiery maniac within each breast
Awaits a stirring irridescent whirring
Of a six eyed god whose wings beat
In a time so odd, so very odd
And we're all lost, all of us blessedly lost

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Exactly when the world is not expecting it
Exactly when we're sure of ourselves
That's exactly when the old gods return
And sweep our cities back into hell

Now is the time that the old gods return
Now is the time that water begins to burn
Now is the time that the apes take wing
And we recognize them from that Oz thing
And we realize it was a prophecy
We realize it was a prophecy
Yeah the old gods laugh, it amuses them
The old gods laugh

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Exactly when the world is not expecting it
Exactly when we're sure of ourselves
That's exactly when the old gods return
And sweep our cities...
And sweep our cities back into hell

Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever and ever
Forever forever and ever

Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return
Now is the time the old gods return

Pocket Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

The blossoms are falling,
Making a white path across the grass
Thunderheads are building, your skin tightens
And you wait for the flash

Across the street, the boys are laughing
As they wash each other's cars
They turn up the hip-hop
White boys
Rapping with the black stars

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

Overhead a rumble, it's not thunder,
It's a 747
The postman grumbles, it's past eleven
The street is sixth
It should be seventh

You hear the chiming of the ice cream truck
Rambling like in a dream
I hear your footsteps behind me
The sweetest eddy in the stream

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

Are you in the pocket of the moment in this particular second
Screwed into the socket of the moment in this particular second
Where time cannot be reckoned
Are you in the pocket of the moment

One Step Ahead Of The Devil Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

You hear the hounds awailin'
As if the mountains groan
You hear the lonesome echo, the telltale clack of stones
You thought you'd get away, but you're never quite alone
You hear the hiss of rattler, maracas on his tail
You hear the lion replyin' to the stalker on your trail

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can

You hear the darkness weeping
For those who fall tonight
That night you lay beside her, for once you almost slept
Until her slim blade glimmered near got you 'fore you leapt
Wish you could leave her livin but that's like guns and rust
You don't want it on your gun, it's just like you and trust

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can

Somewhere, there's a refuge
Somewhere, a place to rest
Somewhere, there's a lover
Someday you'll pass the test

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can

One step ahead of the devil one step
One step ahead of the man one step
You're one step ahead of evil
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can
And you can only run as far as you can

I Just Like To Be Bad Lyrics – Blue Oyster Cult

I knew her when she was a secretary
She always refused to get married
She tried not to smile or meet your eyes
She knew if she did you'd start those lies

I busted a sweat every day on the dock
She sang to herself as she worked for the boss
She'd process words to the dance music station
Every stroke of her fingers an invitation

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

And I kept trying whisperin' slow and special
Something eternal and something essential
I don't give up but I ain't a stalker
I guess I'm just an easy talker

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

And I made sure that I held her gaze
And I made sure she couldn't look away
And I put aside all those tired old lies
She read the truth, see it in my eyes

She said I just like to be bad
First names only and one night stands
I just like to be bad
Forget the face, I want the hands

But only for you I just like to be bad
But only for you I just like to be bad
But only for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you, babe I just like to be bad
I wanna be there for you I just like to be bad
I wanna be for only you I just like to be bad
