UFO Blinded By A Lie

I got the information from a friend last night

And it looks so very different in black and white

I was “part of the second party”, that was me

Signed away my life, really couldn’t see

[1] Blinded by, blinded by a lie

Blinded by, blinded by a lie

I know it’s just the price you pay

I know you’re nothing

[1 Repeat]

Now you listen closely, don’t you go away

There’s a cut of something, in what I have to say

You keep the full deck from me, “Mr. Percent”

Through the legal jungle, who’s the one that’s bent?

[1 Repeat]

I know it’s just the price you pay

I know you’ve nothin’ to say

And oh boy every dog has it’s day

I know you’ll be the one to pay

[INSTRUMENTAL]

And now I see that I was

[1 Repeat and fade]

UFO Terri

Terri everytime we talk we just disagree

Every chance we had is passing by

The simple things you say all drift away into the night

So don’t let me know what I can’t see

[1] Terri is it over again

Lost in love

Everybody laughing at me

With eyes like a child

You smile when you hit the tide

Holding me captive

For the world to see

Every now and then I’d see that wild look in your eyes

It’s in all the long shots that we tried

We used to hold on tight, run for the night

How far we’d go we couldn’t see

[1 Repeat]

Every day goes by we get further and further away

Conversations end with nothing much to say

Maybe we’ve made a mistake it’s too late we’ll never know

We can’t change it girl ’cause I just have to go

[INSTRUMENTAL]

[1 Repeat]

On these lonely nights I reach out for your love

This empty room feels cold and bare

Then I’ll try the phone and swallow my pride

It’s no good we’ve tried and tried

[1 Repeat]

UFO Stop Breaking Down

Just leave another message

Pin it on your door

Don’t hold your breath boy

She don’t live here no more

The telephones disconnected

Papers fall out the box

The manager won’t speak to me

Someone’s changed the locks

Stop breaking down

Lisa don’t live here no more

Stop breaking down

She’s will always be your beautiful

She’s in every hotel room

It looks and smells the same

One night in simi valley

Was washed up in the rain

The cell phones ringing dead

There’s no one here to call

I ring missing persons now

They turn me to the wall

Stop breaking down

Lisa don’t live here no more

Stop breaking down

She’s will always be your beautiful

Stop breaking down

Lisa don’t live here no more

Stop breaking down

She’s will always be your beautiful

UFO Martian Landscape

[1] Come from the land where the wheat is still wheat

Where the waters in the rivers is still water

In this land every man lends a hand when you need it

But your hands are full of life

So you can help yourself and feel it

It’s been a long way from the red of my home

From the valleys and the green plains never ending

Everyone knows that the sun in his land is stronger

And your hands are full of life

If you can only wait just longer

[2] So let it be a small haven big in Your heart

Don’t let it turn into an ogre

Tryin’ to climb and climb

and forget this place where

I can still find time

To sing in rhyme

[3] Martian landscape.

I’ll learn to lie in your arms

Where all the freedom is mine and it comes

Martian landscape,

I’ll turn my face to your sun

Where your horizon is mine and it comes

[1 Repeat]

[2 Repeat]

[3 Repeat]

Martian landscape

Martian landscape

UFO Lonely Cities

As the midnight fades in boys town

And the hustle stops to glow

This urban landscape sprawls before me

And the hunger starts to grow

But something more than my daddy showed to me

How he wanted to make a man of me

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

Hiding in the shadows and searching in the dark

My mama reads me like an open book

She knows when I’m up or down

But every night I stay longer

In the creole part of town

Something more than what the good lord gave to me

Something more, much more than this

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

Hiding in the shadows, searching in the dark

And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

[instrumental]

I can take a little pain, but not tonight again

Outside my hotel window I hear the Mardi Gras

Keep the candle burning bright Babe, I’ve come too far

As daylight creeps through the curtains I start to slip away,

And everything that seems so certain is just another day

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

Hiding in the shadows searching in the dark

And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

Hiding in the shadows searching in the dark

And it never stops, no it never stops, no one defends you now

Living in the lonely cities of the heart

Living in the lonely cities of the heart…

UFO Pushed To The Limit

Put your feet up maybe let the world pass by

Keep off the street, go away and wait to die

What you don’t see is what life means to me

My woman says it ain’t right

For a man my age to fight

She don’t get it

She ain’t in it

I’m pushed to the limit

Two clean shirts, I’m puffing on an old cigar

I still love women, sex and fancy cars

What you don’t conceive is just what I believe

My doctor says it ain’t right

For a man my age to fight

He don’t get it

he ain’t in it

I’m pushed to the limit

Is it nice and cozy, sitting there in your evening chair

Is your paper pressed like your string vest

It’s enough to make you rip out your hair

Relations sit and wring their hands

How long will I survive

Here’s the cherry, there’s more spunk left

Kiss my arse, I’m still alive

You keep it nice and quiet boy, but please don’t pacify me

I’m just not ready for the shade of an old oak tree

What you don’t see is what life means to me

And my dad’s an angry man, sometimes like Desperate Dan

And he gets it

And he’s in it

He’s pushed to the limit

My doctor says it ain’t right

For a man my age to fight

He says put out the light

He don’t get it

He ain’t in it

I’m pushed to the limit

UFO Borderline

Daylight’s rising across the plains

This rig is streaking like a hellbound train

I smuggle whiskey, I smuggle gin

Where there’s a need well I just truck on in

I’m a gambling man, son of a gun

I’ll take the risks now baby I’ll make the run

Wanna get home now, back in the saddle

Ain’t gonna drive this kinda grade A cattle

Daylight’s rising across the plains

This rig is streaking like a hellbound train

Albuquerque now, New Mexico

This [?] one night show, yeah

[1] (And I’m) one step closer to the devil

One step further from the law

Lord I guess I’m just on borrowed time

But I’m one step closer to the

One step closer to the borderline

18 hours on this one long shift

Wanna hear the sweet sound of my tailgate lift

Lord I’m dying out on this road

Wanna see my baby, help me unload

[1 Repeat]

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Rolling stock now, shifting steel

Got a woman with a touch to heal

Diesel, dust and my wheels are humming

So close to home, can you feel me coming

[1 Repeat]

To the borderline…

To the borderline

[INSTRUMENTAL]

[1 Repeat]

To the borderline…

To the borderline…

Wheels are rollin’ down on home

UFO The Wild, The Willing And The Innocent

He’s dressed to kill, out to thrill

Waiting for you tonight

Got my ear down to the ground, waiting for the warning sound

Something’s got to bite

And I’m looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

Looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

And the wild, the willing and the innocent

Are down, down in the jungle tonight

As the jackal tracks every step you make

Watching, waiting for the one chance to bite

Time to strike, assassin-like

In the final dangerous game

Trap set in the net, feel my hands start to sweat

Ooh I’m taking aim

And I’m looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

Looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

And the wild, the willing and the innocent

Are down, down in the jungle tonight

As the jackal tracks every step you make

Watching, waiting for the one chance to bite

Cold black steel, your last meal

The hand of fate has come

Phone taps, blueprint maps, making my nerve-ends snap

Public enemy number one

And I’m looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

Looking for a wild rose

In the heat of the night waiting for a show

And the wild, the willing and the innocent

Are down, down in the jungle tonight

As the jackal tracks every step you make

Watching, waiting for the one chance to bite

UFO Villains & Thieves

Two guns went down to texas

Got two guns on the run

This town is full of money honey

That’s how the west was won

Ain’t nothing but money

Money is the honey

Gonna take it and run run run

A suitcase full of money

Lulu’s earrings through her nose

Tattoos say come love me now

Wearing her mama’s wedding clothes

Villains and thieves

Honky tonk jam in a moonshine can

Villains and thieves

Cowboys with cars

Mamas playing a tune on my guitar

I’ve got a black diamond cadillac

Baby’s painting her toes

I’ve got the world sitting at my feet

Sharp shoes and a brand new nose

Villains and thieves

Honky tonk jam in a moonshine can

Villains and thieves

Cowboys with cars

Mamas playing a tune on my old guitar

Semprini sings tonight

He has magic hands

He’s sings like a bird now

And he’s going to go down the pan

UFO Other Men’s Wives

Well the thunder came and the wind did howl

Plague of rats and the dogs did growl

I can’t help you, wouldn’t if I could

I should help you, wouldn’t if I could

You’re a stain in my neighbourhood

I wouldn’t help you if I could

I caught my baby with another man

I’m gonna kill ’em both because I can

Shot ’em right between the eyes

You don’t mess with other men’s wives

Well the dancers jiggled the band played on

Smell of sweat before I’m gone

Death by cop and death by band

Feel the fury of a dead man’s hand

I can’t help you, wouldn’t if I could

I should help you, wouldn’t if I could

You’re a stain in my neighbourhood

I wouldn’t help you if I could

I caught my baby with another man

I’m gonna kill ’em both because I can

Shot ’em right between the eyes

You don’t mess with other men’s wives

No, no, no, no

Caught my baby with another man

I’m gonna kill ’em both because I can

Shot ’em right between the eyes

You don’t mess with other men’s wives

Other men’s wives

You don’t mess with other men’s wives

Kick your hands of both

No mess with me

Don’t mess with me

Don’t squire

Don’t with me
