Début single from The Crossfire Hurricanes. Psychedelic riffs, punchy vocals, stand-alone chorus, and one hell of a middle-8.

Moving up on you from the inside
I'll charm you like a new belief
Rolling right through you from the outside
I’m everything you feel
I’m everything that’s real

I’m moving through circles that you don’t know
Sliding in and out of view
I’m always in the places that you can’t go
But I’ll be taking you
If you only knew

Lean in closer to me…
You act scared but I’ve seen the way you stare
Girl you can’t go long without a thrill
They say a dare is just another devil’s prayer
But you can’t go far without a thrill

Seen you out hanging by the motel
Driven by the thrills you seek
A fool would only break you from this dark spell
I’ll give you what you need
Just come along with me
It’s not like the timing doesn’t suit ya

Though you’re seduced we were never introduced
I’m the one who’s come for that thrill
I won’t abuse what it is you’re here to lose
And I’ve got you there with your
Hands tied, lips smile, eyes wide
Hot wax on your skin
Girl, toes curled, my world…
Won’t you please step in
Time paves its way through this pleasured sin
Breathe with me, you scream
“You’ve burned me all up in a day!”

A day is all it takes.

The Deviant is standing at the crossroads
Where Robert Johnson walked away with a grin
He knows it doesn’t matter what he gets sold
Cause every story needs a place to begin
That’s where he learned to sin
Nothing the Blues will never teach ya.

D’you ever wonder why the Devil took so long
Trying to talk you out of your fear?
I guess he knew I’d walk you straight into the storm
You better brace yourself and then
Let go, mind blows, you’ll fly
Higher than before
Roll through sky
Riders On The Storm
Time paves its way from the day you’re born
Shine, try, fight
A revolution won in a day

And when your heart is racing through you,
Don’t be afraid because it doesn’t take too long
I’ve told you time and time,
Time and time again
You’ve gotta learn to stand on your own
Tell me why you’re taking so long

Because… pride drives life.
