  Infidels session 6, Power Station NYC - 16.apr.1983, takes 13,14  
  Infidels session 6, Power Station NYC - 16.apr.1983  

They say, "Drink and be merry, take the bull by the horns.''
I keep seeing visions of you, a lily among thorns
Everything looks a little far away to me.
Gettin' harder and harder to recognize the trap
Too much information about nothin', too much educated rap
It's just like you told me just like you said it would be.
The moon rising like wildfire
I feel the breath of a skunk
Something I got to do tonight
You go inside and stay warm.

Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
You, you yeah, got a hold of my heart.

Just got back from a city of powder blue skies
Everybody thinks with their stomach
There's plenty of spies, every street is crooked
They just wind around till they disappear.
Madame Butterfly, she lulls me to sleep
Like an ancient river so wide and deep
She said, "Be easy, baby, ain't nothin' worth stealin' here.''
You're the one I've been waitin' for
You're the one I desire
But you must first realize
I'm not another man for hire.

Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
You, you, you, you, yeah, you got a hold of my heart

I hear the hot-blooded singer on the bandstand croon
September Song, Memphis in June
While they're beating the devil out of a guy
Who's wearing a flaming red wig.
I been to Babylon, i got to confess
I can still hear that voice crying in the wilderness
What looks large from a distance
Close up is never that big.
Never could learn to drink that blood and call it wine
Never could learn to look at your face and call it mine.

Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
Someone's got a hold of my heart
You, yeah, you got a hold of my heart  up
