heavy drums!
the lead guitar was performed mostly by vinnie vincent-
not ace or bruce as the album covers depict.
in the midst of religious fanatics
burning kiss albums (among other things),
kiss cranks up the volume with "i love it loud"
and even heavies up the albums ballad "i still love you",
which features eric carr on bass guitar.
"killer" is the only lemon-
they should have picked another song
to throw in as filler.-lynn

creatures of the night

searching in the darkness, running from the day
hiding from tomorrow, nothing left to say
victims of the moment, future deep in doubt
living in a whisper till we start to shout
we're creatures of the night, we're creatures of the night
breathing in the madness, spitting out the lies
searching for an answer, keep your alibis
don't know where we're goin', just know where we've been
remember when the clock strikes twelve, the losers always win
we're creatures of the night, we're creatures of the night
searching in the darkness, running from the day
hiding from tomorrow, nothing left to say
gathering up our courage, ready for the fight
howling in the shadows, till we start to bite
we're creatures of the night, we're creatures of the night
we're creatures of the night, we're creatures of the night

saint and sinner

i'm getting off this carousel, you can do as you please,
you can go to hell
you put my back against the wall
well i'm not gonna fall on my knees, no not at all
so you're a saint, i'm a sinner, but deuces are wild
better wake up, it's break up, i ain't got the time
so (baby) you can kiss my heart bye bye
next to you i feel i'm all alone, love's turned to stone, ooh yeah
cross my heart and hope to cry, well i'm not gonna die
without you it's aces high
so you're a saint, i'm a sinner, but deuces are wild
better wake up, it's break up, i ain't got the time
so (baby) you can kiss my heart bye bye
bye bye babe
kiss my heart bye bye, you missed my heart this time around
kiss my heart bye bye, and i don't need no one at all, no!
there's no right and there's no wrong, i'm moving on
i'll go it alone, because love's turned to stone
so you're a saint, i'm a sinner, but deuces are wild
better wake up, it's break up, i ain't got the time
so (baby) you can kiss my heart bye bye
so bye bye babe, bye bye babe
no i'm not gonna die, cross my heart and hope to cry
no no no no i'm not gonna die, so bye bye bye babe
well i'm not gonna die without you babe
no i'm not gonna die

keep me comin'

i know what you're like, you're not sleepin' at night
i know you're losing control, i know your plans
where you're keeping your hands, i know it's taking its toll
sweet little innocent girl, making your way in this world
something you're feeling tonight tells you
what's wrong and what's right
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' (keep me comin')
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' babe (keep me comin')
hands on my shoulders now, you're getting bolder,
your fears are slipping away
each little bite lets me know that you're ripe,
you're thinking maybe you'll stay
now that you're burning to know, how far you're willing to go
now that it's under your skin, now that you're lettin' me in
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' (keep me comin')
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' babe (keep me comin')
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' (keep me comin')
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' babe (keep me comin')
ooh yeah, comin', comin'
ooh yeah, right here, right now
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' (keep me comin')
you gotta keep me comin' (keep me comin'),
keep me comin' babe (keep me comin')

rock and roll hell

been under fire sixteen years, just waitin' for his time to come
he fought the lies, fought back the tears,
can't wait to hear that starting gun
there ain't nobody gonna step on his dreams
so he held his hands high and screamed
get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
get me out of this rock and roll hell, i need to get away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
he's on the edge, he can feel it in his heart
this time the pressure's really on
he's gonna fight it, might even steal a guitar
this time tomorrow he'll be gone
there ain't nobody gonna tell him what to do
think he's a little like me and you
get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
get me out of this rock and roll hell, i need to get away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
he's on the run, won't stand for second place,
but his turn may never come
he's not a victim, you can see it in his face
but he can't see what he's become
well, he wants it bad, but he wants no charity
he seems to think it's his destiny
get me out of this rock and roll hell, i need to get away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
get me out of this rock and roll hell
get me out of this rock and roll hell, i need to get away
get me out of this rock and roll hell

danger

in the night i will be waitin'
ready to go, soon as the daylight is fadin'
in the night my heart is beating
out of control, can't stop the way that i'm feeling
i wanna know how far to go, takin' my life in my hands
out on my own, fighting alone, call me the desperate man
danger, danger, give me danger, danger
give me measures of pleasure and pain, boiling the blood in my veins
danger, danger, give me danger, danger
give me nothing to stand in my way, i'll make the best of my days
in the night, oh, i can feel it
time slips away, if i can't pay i will steal it
in the night i will be screamin'
hour by hour livin' the life that i'm dreamin'
under the gun, i'll be the one, walking the edge of the knife
taking the best, leaving the rest, i'm gonna run for my life
danger, danger, give me danger, danger
give me measures of pleasure and pain, boiling the blood in my veins
danger, danger, give me danger, danger
give me nothing to stand in my way, i'll make the best of my days
i wanna know how far to go, takin' my life in my hands
out on my own, fighting alone, call me the desperate man
danger, danger, give me danger, danger
give me fires that endlessly burn, i've passed the point of return
danger, danger, danger, danger, danger, danger

i love it loud

stand up, you don't have to be afraid,
get down - love is like a hurricane
street boy, no i never could be tamed, better believe it
guilty 'til i'm proven innocent, whiplash, heavy metal accident
rock on, i wanna be president, 'cos
i love it loud, i wanna hear it loud, right between the eyes
loud, i wanna hear it loud, i don't want to compromise
turn it up, hungry for the medicine, two fisted to the very end
no more treated like aliens, we're not gonna take it
no lies, no more alibis, turn it up, it's got me hypnotized
rock on, i won't be tranquilized, 'cos
i love it loud, i wanna hear it loud, right between the eyes
loud, i wanna hear it loud, i don't want to compromise
i love it loud, i wanna hear it loud, right between the eyes
loud, i wanna hear it loud, i don't want to compromise
headlines jungle is the only rule, front page roar of the nation cool
turn it up, this is my attitude, take it or leave it
i love it loud, i wanna hear it loud, right between the eyes
loud, i wanna hear it loud, i don't want to compromise

i still love you

you tell me that you're leaving, and i'm trying to understand
i had myself believing i should take it like a man
but if you gotta go, then you gotta know that it's killing me
and all the things i never seem to show, i gotta make you see
girl it's been so long, (tell me) how could it be
one of us knows the two of us don't belong in each others company
it hurts so much inside, your telling me goodbye, you wanna be free
and knowin' that you're gone and leavin' me behind
i gotta make you see, i gotta make you see, i gotta make you see
i still love you, i still love you
i really, i really love you, i still love you
people tell me i should win at any cost
but now i see as the smoke clears away, the battle has been lost
i see it in your eyes, you never have to lie, i'm out of your life
tonight i'll dream away and you can still be mine
but i'm dreamin' a lie, dreamin' a lie, makes me wanna die
'cause i still love you, i still love you
baby, baby i love you, i still love you
and when i think of all the things you'll never know
there's so much left to say
'cos girl, now i see the price of losing you will be my hell to pay
my half to pay, each and every day, hear what i say
i still love you, i still love you
i really, i really love you, i still love you
baby, baby, i love you, i love you, i really, i really love you

killer

her love is a gun, her love is a blade, she's a killer
bitch is insane, she deals in pain, she's a killer
ooh, she'll cut you clean, then she'll watch you bleed
so obscene, she's what i need, she loves to hear me scream
black lace, stiletto heels, she's a killer
crack the whip, submission trip, she's a killer
ooh, cat in heat, mistress of deceit
nerves of steel, her next meal, she's searching for the meat
she's a killer, stone cold killer, killer, stone cold killer
watch out for your jugular vein, she's a killer
animal with a twisted brain, she's a killer
ooh, she guarantees you'll suffer with desire
wicked queen, night machine, she'll make you walk through fire
killer, run for your life, killer, will she bite
killer, run for your life, killer, will she bite, suck your blood tonight
killer, stone cold killer, she's a killer, stone cold killer
killer, stone cold killer, she's a killer, stone cold killer
she's a killer, she's a killer, stone cold killer
she's a killer, stone cold killer, she's a killer

war machine

wanna bite the hand that feeds me, wanna turn the tides
set the demons free and watch 'em fly
strike down the one who leads me, i'm gonna take his place
gonna vindicate the human race
better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
take the reins of power and seize them, draw the battle lines
armageddon's just a matter of time
tear down the voice of reason, let the arrows fly
your freedom's just a state of mind, yeah
better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
you better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
you better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
you better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
better watch out 'cause i'm a war machine
i'm a war machine, i'm a war machine
