Track Name: Can't We Just Rock?
I've been working all day at the shop
Can't we just rock?
I've been standing and staring at the clock
Can't we just rock?
And I'm wondering when the day's going to stop
Can't we just rock?

I'm just trying to make some money
So I can have a ball
Some money for my guitar, honey
Six strings and all
'cause if I can't play guitar,
I don't wanna live at all

And it really is a shame
When your money is to blame
Why every day's the same but you can't stop
Can't we just rock?

Well, there's nothing on the radio
But you already know
I say let's go down to the rock n roll show
Well, you already know
Where the music is real
It Just goes to show, you know

Well, everybody's worried, everybody's in a hurry
Trying to be the next best thing
I don't really know 'bout the status quo
I just wanna dance and sing
So stop
Can't we just rock?

And it really is a shame
When the music sounds the same
And everyone's to blame but we don't stop
Can't we just rock?
Track Name: Rock and Roll is Dead
Woke up this morning, couldn't get out of bed
One of those days where you just wish you were dead
Now, let me tell you 'bout my problem, you see
My baby took my rock and roll from me

My baby said that I'm just wasting my time
But she can't see that I've been losing my mind
I said "hey baby, what's your problem anyway?"
She shook her head and this is what she said

"Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
No money to be made, keep your day job instead
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead"

I told my doctor everything that she said
He wrote it down and kept on shaking his head
He said "I'm sorry, son, I have to agree
But rock and roll's been dead since '73"

"Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
Now take these pills and get it outta your head
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead"

Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
I can't believe it, what the newspaper said
Rock and roll, rock and roll is dead
Track Name: Fire in the Hole
Fire in the hole in St. Louis
Police kill a boy for the color of his skin
Out for blood, the city's out for blood
sayin' "c'mon, c'mon, c'mon let's burn this fucker down"

Fire in the hole in our backyard
Sitting, watching like it's a TV show
What will we do when they put us in line?
It's a matter of time before they tear us apart

Fire in the hole in New York City
Police state, baby
And we fell for it
Now we know the "enemy"'s at home
So open your eyes, they'll never take us alive
Track Name: Jasmine
Jasmine,
I can hear you in your bedroom
Making pretty music
Don't you know I wanna play with you all the time

I'll beg and I'll plead
I'll even get down on my knees
Jasmine give me a chance
'Cause you make me really wanna dance
Then one day, to my surprise
You asked me to play by your side

Jasmine
You know you got me trippin'
'Cause you don't wanna go on record
No, no, no, no you know I'm gonna lose my mind

I'll beg and I'll plead
I'll even get down on my knees
Jasmine give me a chance
'Cause you make me really wanna dance
Can it be that it's me, you can see
When we get high
Track Name: Stimulation
Guy's in the van yelling at the radio station
'Cause he hasn't heard a song that hasn't been played in years
His taste of words gives a pretty clear indication
That nothing on the radio gives him stimulation

John's on a plane headed off to California
He had to get away because he didn't want to break his break
On the hunt again for the next sensation
Nothing in his home town gives him stimulation

I want, I want stimulation
'Cause you can never get enough of what you can never get
I need, I need stimulation
While everybody else is a breathing simulation
Living in a television station

Sheena goes to work seven days a week
Workin 7 to 11 and she comes home unfulfilled
She wants to see the band on a saturday night
'cause that rock n roll music makes her feel alright
But working all the time don't give her no stimulation

And there you are with your head in a simulation
With your need to be entertained ad nauseam
On the hunt again for the next sensation
While I'm in the basement dreaming 'bout stimulation

I want, I want stimulation
'Cause you can never get enough of what you can never get
I need, I need stimulation
While everybody else is a breathing simulation
Living in a television station

I want, I want stimulation
I need, I need stimulation
Because I want what I can't get
While all you people watch your TV set
Track Name: I Got the Shakes
I know you don't give a shit about me
And it's just too plain to see
You're only looking just to have some fun
And I know I'll never be the one

But, I just can't get a grip on myself
And everyday you're putting me through hell
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
When all I say has no meaning to you

I'm making that change tonight
I can't take it anymore
'Cause when ya touch me, baby, I get the shakes

It makes me sick to my stomach, you see
Just what exactly you've been doing to me
Never mind all the excuses you make
C'mon, touch me, baby, I got the shakes

I didn't expect for things to be this way
Wanting to touch you every night and day
I try to sleep but I keep calling your name
I can't take it, I'm going insane

I know, know what you're thinking
You know, know my intentions
All this time you just let me waste it
Throw me a sign but ya won't let me taste it

I'm making that change tonight
I can't take it anymore
'Cause when ya touch me, baby, I get the shakes

It makes me sick to my stomach, you see
Just what exactly you've been doing to me
Never mind all the excuses you make
C'mon, touch me, baby, I got the shakes
Track Name: Johnny May
Johnny May, Johnny May
You make me feel like the month of May
Johnny May, Johnny May
You are like the month of May

Coming up from down the street
Did you have a good time at the show?
And you just want to know
It makes me happy, you need to know

Johnny May, Johnny May
You make me feel like the month of May
Johnny May, Johnny May
You are like the month of May

You just came down the street
Walking your dog and tapping your feet
I just know that you'll love this song
And you sure could sing along

Johnny May, Johnny May
You make me feel like the month of May
Johnny May, Johnny May
You are like the month of May

We'll all go and sing along
On the porch or on the street
On the bus or at the beach
Any old place is good for me
