Tesla Hang Tough

Took a shot to the chin.

Looks like you just can’t win

In this do or die situation.

And it’s harder than it seems

To survive, keep alive and make your dreams,

Make your dreams all come true.

You gotta, you gotta give it your best shot.

Give it ev’rything you got.

Oh, you gotta hang tough.

Hang tough. Hang tough.

Sometimes love can make you blue.

A heartache made just for you.

But you can’t let it bring ya down.

If you should stumble, if you should fall,

Pick yourself up off the floor.

Fight for what’s right and stand your ground.

You gotta give it your best shot.

Give it ev’rything you got.

Oh, you gotta hang tough.

Hang tough. Hang tough.

When the goin’ gets rough.

Hang tough. You got to give it all you’ve got.

Hang tough. Keep your head above the ground.

Don’t you let it get you down.

Oh, you gotta hang tough.

Hey! Oh! Hey! Oh!

You stay locked away inside your room

‘Cause you don’t know what this world is comin’ to.

Hummingbird hums ’cause he don’t know the words

And the piper will play ’cause he don’t know what to say.

He’s alot like you, yeah. Oh, he’s alot like you, yeah.

He tries hard ev’ry day to be free and fly away. Yeah!

Hang tough, oh, when the goin’ gets rough.

Hang tough. You’ve got to give it all you got.

Hang tough. Keep your head above the ground.

Don’t you let it get you down.

Oh, you gotta hang tough.

Hang tough. Oh, you got to give it all you got. You gotta

Hang tough. Don’t you let it get you down.

Hang tough. No! Oh, you gotta hang tough.

Hang tough.

Hang tough!

Tesla Words Can’t Explain

Once upon a day

Love walked away

Soon after I would learn

Only never to return

Feeling life was through

Like it was to you

Save me before I drown

Put me up on dryer ground

And I meant what I said

When I told you

I’d never love like this again

I wanna hold you in my arms

Wrap my legs around your pretty self

If only words could explain

I’d surely tell ya now

How I feel about everything

I’d never let you down

And you better believe

You can count on me

I couldn’t ask for better friends

I’d never love like this again (oh no)

This love is real

So much I feel it

So deep inside

As though our hearts are synchronized

Since you became the color of my life

I’ll never make it in black and white

Or pales or shades of gray

You come around then go away

And I meant every word I said

When I told you

I’d never love like this again

I wanna show you

You’re in my heart

You’re in my soul

You’re all I wanna know

If only words could explain

I’d surely tell ya now

How I feel about everything

I’d never let you down

And you better believe

That you can count on me

What does that really mean?

I’d never know for sure

I don’t know what to believe

I only know what I’m feeling

I’m going to a place

I’ve never been before

I just cant help myself

Can’t help what I’m feeling

If only words could explain

If only words could explain

If only words could explain

If only words could explain

Baby how I feel

Tesla Signs

And the sign says “Long-haired freaky people need not apply”

So I put my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why

He said you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you’ll do

So I took off my hat, I said “Imagine that, huh, me working for you”

[Chorus:]

Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs

Fuckin’ up the scenery, breakin’ my mind

Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign

And the sign says “Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight”

So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house

Hey! What gives you the right!

To put up a fence and keep me out, or to keep Mother Nature in

If God was here, he’d tell it to your face, man, you’re some kind of sinner

[Chorus]

Oh, say now mister, can’t you read

You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat

You can’t watch, no you can’t eat, you ain’t supposed to be here

And the sign says “You got to have a membership card to get inside” – uh!

[Solo]

And the sign says “Everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray”

But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all

And I didn’t have a penny to pay

So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own fuckin’ sign

I said, “Thank you Lord for thinking ’bout me, I’m alive and doing fine”, oh

[Chorus 2x]

Yes! Some old song, called “Signs Signs”, I wish we did write that one, but

We didn’t – wow!

Alright

Tesla Space Truckin’

We had a lot of luck on Venus

We always had a ball on Mars

Meeting all the groovey people

We’ve rocked the Milky Way so far

We danced around with Borealice

We’re space truckin’ round the the stars

Come on let’s go Space Truckin’

Remember when we did the moonshot

And Pony Trekker led the way

We’d move to the Canaveral moonstop

And everynaut would dance and sway

We got music in our solar system

We’re space truckin’ round the stars

Come on let’s go Space Truckin’

The fireball that we rode was moving

But now we’ve got a new machine

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah the freaks said

Man those cats can really swing

They got music in their solar system

They’ve rocked around the Milky Way

They dance around the Borealice

They’re Space Truckin’ everyday

Come on

Tesla Sympathy

If you could understand my pain

Then all my cries would never be in vain

If you would recognize my footprints and bloodstains

Then everything would change

You can say it all in a million ways without a word

Have some mercy on me

A little sympathy

Are you listening?

Can you hear my screams?

Does your heart still beat

While you watch me freeze in your cold disease

Can you hear my screams?

Tell me now could you even comprehend

All these messages I’m trying to send

Show me how all this misery could end

Turn it all around and be my friend

You can say it all in a million ways without a word

Tesla Mighty Mouse

I’m just living for the day, chances are will never come

Always searching for a way, to d the things that can’t be done

What may seem a waste of time, despite all good intentions

But, who’s to say what’s wrong or right, is there any chance at all

Mighty Mouse, come down and save the day

Underdog is on his way

Superman, you’ve got to kick that Kryptonite

Lord knows, we need some help tonight

Flashing signals thru the sky, and to both sides of the moon

Still I wait, but no reply, to indicate you’re coming soon

You may think I waste my time, to rely on fiction

But I can’t wait to blow their minds, when you come and save us all

Come an save us all

Mighty Mouse, come down and save the day

Underdog is on his way

Superman, you’ve got to kick that Kryptonite

Lord knows, we need some help tonight

We’ve lost control, break down the wall

Come save us all, save us from our self

Save us from our self, save us from our self

Save us from our self, before we lose it all

Mighty Mouse, come down and save the day

Underdog is on his way

Superman, you’ve got to kick that Kryptonite

Lord knows, we need some help tonight

Mighty Mouse, Underdog, Superman

You’ve got to kick that Kryptonite

Tesla Modern Day Cowboy

[Verse 1:]

Stormy night under jet black skies, billy pulls into town

Thunder rolled and the lightning bolts come crashin’ to the ground

Cold as ice, hard as stone, as he walks into the room

With another man who was feeling the same way, all hell’s breakin’ loose

[Chorus:]

Bang bang, shoot ’em up, bang bang, blow you away

It’s a showdown in the no man’s land, for the cowboy of the modern day

Come sundown, don’t be hangin’ round, ’cause the cowboy’ll blow you away

[Verse 2:]

Al Capone and the Bad Boy Jones, on the wrong side of the law

Johnny D and his company, always first to the draw,

Gangster lean, feelin’ so mean, I try to take more than their share

‘Cause all they saw was ruling it all, the scent of blood was in the air

[Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3:]

So here we are and we’ve come this far, but it’s only getting worse

Foreign lands with their terrorist demands, only cause the good to hurt

The U.S.A., the U.S.S.R., with their six-guns to the side

I see the message written on the wall, too much anger deep inside

[Chorus]

It’s a showdown!

Tesla Miles Away

Such a heavy price to pay, all the time that I’ve spent missing home

And I try not to complain, but sometimes it won’t leave me alone

And I think I know myself better than anyone else

Cause I’m me, I oughta know, what I want, what I need, what’s inside of me

Maybe something that I took to get outta my head, or took for the thrill

The way I dress, the way that I look, or the way that I pay the bills

‘Cause you’re miles away, miles away, how could you be so wrong

‘Cause you’re miles away, miles away, how could you know the score

All eyes on the stage, all the glitter and glow

Move to the rhythm, wile striking a pose

Music and melody, and words to a poem

You think that you know me, you’re not even close

Though I’m living out my dream, wasn’t long ’til I figured it out

Nothing ever comes for free, even here on the merry-go-round

So you wanna take a ride, rollin’, and living the life

‘Cause you think I got it made, well, in case you don’t know, my friend died today

And it’s tearing me apart, if I knew what to say, don’t know where to start

I reached down in my heart, and with paper an pen put it in a song

‘Cause you’re miles away, miles away, how could you be so wrong

‘Cause you’re miles away, miles away, how could you know the score

All eyes on the stage, all the glitter and glow

Move to the rhythm, wile striking a pose

Music and melody, and words to a poem

You think that you know me, you’re not even close

The pages have burned but they’re written in stone

Now, what will become of us, nobody knows

And the wheel keeps on turning, I rise and I fall

And I try to get back, but I’m lost in it all

And I look all around, and I see that it’s gone

You’re miles away, miles away

Yeah, you’re miles away, yeah, you’re miles away

Miles away, yeah, you’re miles away

Tesla War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses

Just like witches at black masses

Evil minds that plot destruction

Sorcerers of death’s construction

In the fields the bodies burning

As the war machine keeps turning

Death and hatred to mankind

Poisoning their brainwashed minds

Oh Lord yeah

Politicians hide themselves away

They only started the war

Why should they go out to fight

They leave that all to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds

Making war just for fun

Treating people just like pawns in chess

Wait ’till their judgment day comes

Now in darkness world stops turning

As the war machine keeps burning

No more war pigs have the power

Hand of God has struck the hour

Day of judgment God is calling

On their knees, the war pigs crawling

Begging mercy for their sins

Satan laughing spreads his wings

Oh Lord yeah

Tesla Solution

Down to the wire, on the end of the road

Down to the wire, and the kids don’t know

Mother Nature’s on her knees, and we’re the reason of her disease

Hangin’ off the ceiling, climbing up the walls

Crawling on my hands and knees to make it through it all

Now we can change or stay the same, one’s the answer and the next to blame

Solution is a world of change

If we’re gonna make it through tomorrow

Down in the dirt and fallin’ out on the street

Crossin’ the line myself [to make it to me]

Mother Nature’s still on her knees, and we’re the reason of her disease

Hangin’ off the ceiling, climbing up the walls

Crawling on my hands and knees to make it through it all

Now we can change or stay the same, one’s the answer and the next insane

Solution is a world of change

If we’re gonna make it through tomorrow

The solution is to make a change today, oh yeah

Make it, I said make it!

[Solo]

Down to the wire, on the end of the road

Down to the wire, all the kids don’t know

Mother Nature’s down on her knees, and we’re the reason of her disease

Hangin’ off the ceiling, climbing up the walls

Crawling on my hands and knees, just to make it, just to make it

Now we can change or stay the same, one’s the answer and the next to blame

Solution is a world of change

If we’re gonna make it through tomorrow

The solution is to make a change today, okay

If we ever make it, now will we ever make it

Through tomorrow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow

Through tomorrow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow – ah!
