MALIBU BARBI (US) - Rude Girls EP LYRICS

Rick wrote:This reminds me of when I tried to write down the lyrics to Malibu Barbi's 'Rude Girls' by request of a friend. Some parts were just too tough for me. Perhaps you guys can help? (and the topic title could be changed to 'lyrics decipherment' or something so that I don't come off as off-topic!)



'Lords of the Night'

The day has come for those to see
The devil's dying and acts at ease
Look into my eyes - they're eyes of hate

And in this city white shrooms will rise ???
And in the darkness the holy one will die

Lords of the night
Living for shadows out of time
Lords of the night
Stand between the darkness and light

One evil has destroyed
Sacrificed in life with hate
Tearing out your heart with --- ???
It makes you feel their brain

Do you think of imperfect light
Their dreams may come of age
But you who do believe
flow with everlasting life

Lords of the night
Living for shadows out of time
Lords of the night
Stand between the darkness and light




'When the Lightning Strikes'

Magic attraction
Electrical cage
A blaze through the universe
To live and escape
One has died for five to save
Remember the last one that is rayed

When lightning strikes
There's fire

Fielding vector will break the speed of sound
Bandits are fearful - no waiting around
One faded night - a flash across the sky
This is the power to gather the answer

Magic created from ???
??? - watching out for which to see
Will light the night - the message burns within
Each rebel headhunt ??? will never win
Good against Evil, Evil sure to win

"It really didn't matter if they liked it or not, i was going to give it to them straight down their throats" -John Stewart

Will listen to it more carefully the next days, here's two quick suggestions of mine on "When lighting strikes"

Magic created from his jeopardy
??? - watching out for which to see
Will light the night - the message burns within
Each rebel headhunt will never ever win
Good against Evil, Evil sure to win

I love these threads :D It's interesting, and it's nice trying to help people.

Here are my suggestions:

'Lords of the Night'

The day has come for those to see
The devil's dying, act at ease
Look into my eyes - they're of the night

And in this city white robes will rise
And in the darkness the holy one will die

Lords of the night
Living for shadows out of time
Lords of the night
Stand between the darkness and light

One evil has destroyed
Sacrificing lives with hate
Tearing out your heart with soul
It makes you feel their pain

Through your bid of imperfect light
Their dreams they come of age
But you who do believe
Sow with everlasting life

Lords of the night
Living for shadows out of time
Lords of the night
Stand between the darkness and light


'When the Lightning Strikes'

Magic attraction
Electric uncaged
A blaze through the universe
Delivered unscathed
One has died for five to say
Remember the last words that he’s read

When lightning strikes
There's fire

Building faster we’ll break the speed of sound
Bandits ? - no waiting around (but it's not 'are fearful')
One faded night - a flash across the sky
This is the power to gather the answer

Magic created from his destiny
Not just to watch and an answer which to see
We’ll light the night - the message burns within
Each rebel has cause but love will never win
Are you the tyrant, who cast them to the sea?
One day you'll be among the dead.

Thanks a lot. Very good work, man!

In Lords of the Night:

White robes is still problematic to my ears, but very possible, yes.
Tearing out your heart with soul ditto, as above.

The rest I think is good.

In When Lightning Strikes, I also think you got it. Amazing you may have deciphered the
Magic created from his destiny - Not just to etc.
lines.
I heard them a zillion times and felt like banging my head against the wall.

Yeah those two lines are problems definetely.

It's really hard when it's impossible to understand the story they're trying to tell, some things seem so out of place even though it really sounds like they're saying it.

After listening to a track many times I try to import the audio to Audacity and edit out the parts without vocals, then I slow the audio down and also speed it up, then I keep listening to all three versions in case it makes anything clearer, also mess with the equaliser to eliminate as much of the other instruments. Having a computer is certainly a lot easier than when I used to sit winding back and forth with a tape deck to work out lyrics :lol:

:shock: And I thought it great that with an mp3 you only had to click the mouse to backtrack a few seconds!

--- \m/ Sledge

WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES

Magic attraction
electric, uncaged.
A BLAZE through the Universe
delivered unscathed.
1 has died for 5 to save.
So remember the last words that he said:

When Lightning Strikes
There's Fire!

Building faster, we'll break the speed of sound.
Banded together, no waiting around.
One fated night
-a flash up on the sky-
This is the Power!
TOGETHER, the Answer!!

Magic attraction
electric, uncaged.
A BLAZE through the Universe
delivered unscathed.
1 has died for 5 to save.
So remember the last words that he said:

When Lightning Strikes
There's Fire!

The magic's created from his destiny.
Not just two, but 10 eyes from which to see,
will night the night and
the message burned within:
Each Rebel has its cause but
ALONE WE'LL NEVER WIN!!

Magic attraction
electric, uncaged.
A BLAZE through the Universe
delivered unscathed.
1 has died for 5 to save.
So remember the last words that he said:

When Lightning Strikes
There's Fire!
When Lightning Strikes
There's Fire!
When Lightning Strikes--
Fire!!!!
!!!!!!!!!

(c)Malibu Barbi 1987
Lyrics by Sandy K Sledge
Music by Sledge, Rebel, Hansen, Furr
In Memory of Cliff Burton, Jo Rebel's bass coach and friend.
Originally called "Rip it Out" with lyrics by our singer Steve Gelardi. Steve had already parted with us when I re-wrote the lyrics while listening to Jo talk about Cliff, so she could memorialize her bass mentor and friend the day after he passed on. We were all in shock.

I already had the power of "when lightning strikes" as a tattoo on my forearm (that you see on the cover of the ep). We all connected hard on that level.
*** From where we come, to where we go. ***

Yours,
Sandy Sledge
Drummer, songwriter

Great to see you here, Sandy! ...and thanx a lot for finally solving this old mystery. I really liked those lyrics. Nice to read something original and not just your generic Thunder&Lightning&Metal stuff - a great epitaph to the man...

Just for completist sake, any chance you have the lyrics to "Lords Of The Night" as well? Would make a nice little EP insert printout together with this one..
