Power Play

Listening to all my mp3s on random (as I tend to do) and Eddie and the Tide's Power Play from The Lost Boys soundtrack just came on. There's some mixed metaphors in the lyrics (baseball isn't played in quarters, after all) and it's probably a prime example of bad 80s music, but damn, I love this song.

They're out of order in war
They're out of order in love

They need to feed, they both agree
The hawk and the dove

But don't get mad, get even
And don't let 'em get to you

I never promised
It was fair and true
Before they're through
They'll have me hunting you

It's not important

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on left

We're in the final quarter
And it's runnning out
You'll need a father
Like there's no time out

He'll lift you out of the cradle
Help you into the grave

But don't be fooled by all the rules
And don't be the slave

You take a chill pill, and, baby
Relax, float downstream

Life is no rehearsal
You know what I mean
And freedom seems
To be a far-off dream

It's not important

Good and evil
They're neck and neck
Bases loaded
And there's three on left

We're in the final quarter
And it's runnning out
You'll need a father
Like there's no time out
