Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
So sleep, silent angel
Go to sleep

 

Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe

All I need is the air that I breathe

Breathe the pressure
Come play my game, I'll test ya
Psychosomatic, addict, insane.

Galveston, oh Galveston
I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun
And dream of Galveston

Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit?
Heard about Pittsburgh, P. A.?
You oughta know not to stand by the window
Somebody see you up there

Night time sticking to the 'B' roads
Hiding from the men with the guns
Hitting the ditches
Everytime somebody comes

He looked a lot like Che Guevara, drove a diesel van
Kept his gun in quiet seclusion, such a humble man
The only survivor of the National People's Gang
Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph
He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone
Panic in Detroit

Ya know, the Motor City is burning,
There ain't a thing in the world they can do.
My home town burning down to the ground,
Worser than Vietnam.

And it’s one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,
The next stop is Vietnam;
And it’s five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain’t no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.

How many dead men will it take
To build a dike that will not break?
How many children must we kill
Before we make the waves stand still?

 

Farewell my wistful Saigon bride,
I'm going out to stem the tide;
A tide that never saw the seas,
It flows through jungles, round the trees.
Some say it's yellow, some say red;
It will not matter when we're dead.

Like a Bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes

And when the night is over like a Bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone

Like a Bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes

And when the day is done and the sun goes down and the moonlight's shinin' through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven I'll come crawling on back to you.

 

Still arguably one of if not THE greatest rock song ever IMO.

The bats are in the belfry
The dew is on the moor
Where are the arms that held me
And pledged her love before
And pledged her love before
And it's such a sad old feeling
All the fields are soft and green
It's memories that I'm stealing
But you're innocent when you dream
