Track Name: Summer Of Love
It's the summer of love
It's the summer of love
Out in the summer of love
It's the summer of love
Track Name: Angels Arrive
Gonna be a bad boy.
Gonna bring ya down. Down.
Devils in the details. Yeah.
Guess I'll see ya 'round. 'Round.
Having bad dreams lately. Yeah. Angels coming down. Down.
Gonna be a bad boy.
Gonna get it on down. Get it on down. Down.
Track Name: New Speedway Boogie
Please don't dominate the rap Jack if you've got nothing new to say.
If you please don't back up the tracks, this train's gotta run today.
I spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I heard some say better run away
Other say better stand still
No I don't know
But I've been told
It's hard to run with a weight of gold
On the other hand I've heard it said
It's just as hard with a weight of lead
Who can deny? Who can deny?
It's not just a change in style
One step done and another begun
And I wonder how many miles
I spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
Things went down we don't understand
But I guess in time we will
Now I don't know but I was told
In the heat of the sun a man died of cold
Keep on coming or stand or wait
With the sun so dark and the hour so late...

You can't overlook the lack Jack
Of another highway to ride
It's got no signs or dividing lines
And very few rules to guide
I spent a little time on the mountain
Spent a little time on the hill
I saw things getting out of hand
I guess they always will
Now I don't know but I've been told
If the horse don't pull you gotta carry the load
I don't know who's back's that strong
Maybe find out before too long
One way or another
One way or another
One way or another
This darkness got to give
Track Name: 1970
Had our chance to see
Be all that we could be
We played with rock and roll
But playings never free
Dancing with the devil
On a cold mountain side
I think we've fucked it up again
And give us a chance we gonna do it again

And it's always the same
Just a stupid game
Always chasing that taste
Cos youth is ours to waste
And I can hear the sound
Of people getting down
Always wanting to taste
Coz youth is theirs to waste
But something's not right
Something's gonna give
Had our time in the sun now
Now there's nowhere to run.

Had our chance to be free
Be all that we could be
We played with rock and rock
And playings never free
Never free
Never free
Never free
Now I think I can see
It's 1970
Now I think I can see
It's 1970
The future's on it's way
It's 1970
Now I think I can see
It's 1970
The future's on it's way
It's 1970
It's 1970
It's 1970
The future's on it's way
