High Priest Of Nothing

I'll Take The Easy Way

(Reiter)

You come home from work all covered in sweat
Just in time to see me get out of bed
I don't care how hard you try
I'll take the easy way and still get by

You know I love you, but you say "prove it to me"
But what you're asking smells like work to me
I don't need no alibi
I'll take the easy way and still get by

Don't you worry 'bout me baby - I'll take the easy way
And I don't care what the people might say

I'm the high priest of nothing baby can't you see
Can't let a guilty conscience bother me
They say I need to work but I don't know why
I'll take the easy way and still get by

I don't need no assistance
On the path of least resistance
I can't lose 'cause I don't even try
I'll take the easy way and still get by

Don't you worry 'bout me baby - I'll take the easy way
And I don't care what the people might say

Don't you worry 'bout me baby - I'll take the easy way
And I don't care what the people might say

Gettin' by ain't so hard to do
Just sit right back and let it happen to you (just watch me do it)

Yes I Do

(Reiter / Jay)

Be who you want to be
And do what you want to do
Just as long as you hear my plea
And make sure that you love me, too
I want you by my side
And I'll tell the world I do
Yes I do

Find what you're lookin' for
'Cause baby I don't mind
Find every open door
But remember I stand behind
All your dreams with all my heart
And a love that's really true
Yes I do

(bridge)
I know it's dark sometimes
But baby can't you see the light?
Way up there like a neon sign it shines
I know the future's bright with you
Yes I do

Go where you have to go
And play what you want to play
Know who you want to know
Just believe every word I say
I want you by my side
And I'll tell the world I do
Yes I do

Where Is The Music?

(Reiter / Jay)

Turn on the tv and what do I see
Talking heads keep talking but they can't agree
What is their message, what are they trying to show
I'm not even listening 'cos here's all I wanna know:

Where is the music? Where is the music?
Where is the music? Where is the music?

Keep your wisdom to yourself
You ain't foolin' me, so put it back on the shelf
Thank you baby, but spare me the sermon
Of all the things here's what I need to determine:

Where is the music? Where is the music?
Where is the music? Where is the music?

Where is the music? Where is the music?
Where is the music? Where is the music?

Musicians got beauticians and they bring their wigs along
Style is what sells it, not the substance or the song
Advertise, don't improvise, 'cause people might complain
But after all is said and done one question still remains:

Where is the music? Where is the music?
Where is the music? Where is the music?

All You'll Ever Need Is Me

(Reiter)

I'm the one you're looking for
Let me give it to you straight
You must have dreamed of me before
'Cos I'm your destiny and fate
How could anyone be too blind to see
That all you'll ever need is me

There's no use in denying
Don't pretend to be so strong
Just believe me I ain't lying
And I've known it all along
Baby don't be too blind to see
That all you'll ever need is me

(bridge)
You don't need to worry
There's no room for doubt
It's just the way it's got to be
I've got it all planned out
You're trying to play it cool
But in the end you can't resist
Come on now and don't be a fool
Admit defeat and give me a kiss

Trust me sweetheart when I say
That there will be a time
You can't believe there was a day
When you couldn't make up your mind
And you really seemed too blind to see
That all you'll ever need is me

City Of Rain

(Reiter)

Dark clouds are rollin' in
Can't tell day from night
A battle the sun won't win
An uneven fight

Roaring thunder
See the lightning strike
If you ever wonder
This is what it's like

In the city of rain

In the city of rain
I'm in a city of rain
In the city of rain

Stuck in this little room
Imprisoned by the rain
Starin' out at the gloom
About to go insane

Take It Easy Baby

(Reiter)

Take it easy baby
Baby, take your time
Take it easy baby
Baby, take your time
All the speedin's gonna kill you
You're gonna be the next in line

Don't rush now baby
I can't keep up with you
Don't rush now baby
If you want me to keep up with you
You'll get there sooner or later
No matter what you do

You've got a long way to travel
So why don't you just enjoy the ride
You've got a long way to travel
So why don't you just enjoy the ride
If you take your time baby
You're gonna go far and wide

Slow down, slow down
Don't leave me behind
Slow down, slow down
Girl, can't you see you're leavin' me behind
Take a look into the mirror
And start makin' up your mind

Don't Let It Pass You By

(Reiter / Jay)

Now don't sit there prayin' for fortune and fame
Cause if you ain't playin' you're losing the game
And you can't win if you don't try
Life's too short, don't let it pass you by

Now get yourself straight, set all your clocks
Don't be late when opportunity knocks
Or you might wind up high and dry
Life's too short, don't let it pass you by

Now don't stand there mopin' with your head hung down
Wishin' and hopin' that love comes around
Just grab on to it, don't be shy
Life's too short, don't let it pass you by

If she takes the bait when you're casting your line
Don't hesitate or she might go for mine
Cause competition's really high
Life's too short, don't let it pass you by

Stop wishin' you were fishin' with another guy
Life's too short, don't let it pass you by

Just Another Nail

(Reiter)

I'm trying to forget you
But it's too hard for me it seems (2x)
Every single memory is just another nail
In the coffin of my dreams

I can't help from cryin'
When it's you I'm thinking of (2x)
Each tear that I cry is just another nail
In the coffin of my love

I'm rollin' fast
On this downhill slope (2x)
Each and every turn that I make is just another nail
In the coffin of my hope
