Live For Me
by Blue Öyster Cult

Goering's on the phone to Freiburg
Says "Willie's done quite a job"
Hitler's on the phone from Berlin
Says "I'm gonna make you a star"

My Captain Von Ondine, here's your next patrol
A flight of English bombers across the canal
After twelve, they'll all be here
I think you know the job

They hung there dependent from the sky
Like some heavy metal fruit
These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt
Must these Englishmen live that I might die
Must they live that I might die

In a G-load disaster from the rate of climb
Sometimes I'd faint and be lost to our side
But there's no reward for failure, but death
So watch me in the mirrors, keep me on the glide path

Get me through these radars, no I cannot fail
When my great silver slugs are eager to feed
I can't fail, no not now
When twenty five bombers wait ripe

They hung there dependent from the sky
Like some heavy metal fruit
These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt
Must these Englishmen live that I might die
Must they live that I might die

Me-262 prince of turbojet, Junker's Jumo 004
Blasts from clustered R4M quartets in my snout
And see these English planes go burn
Now will you be my witness how red were the skies
When the fortresses flew, for the very last time
It was dark over Westphalia, in April of '45

They hung there dependent from the sky
Like some heavy metal fruit
These bombers, ripened, ready to tilt
Must these Englishmen live that I might die
Must they live that I might die

Must these Englishmen live that I might die
Junkers Jumo 004 (repeat many times)
Bombers at 12 o'clock high

Classic track!! Why the HELL is'nt this better known?? Some people just don't know what they're missing.

"Heaven Forbid" and "The Curse of the Hidden Mirror" are two real gems. About ten years after the, at the time, latest studioalbum and almost twenty years since the original line-up went off. A band that many probably was seen as a distance memory for most people. And then they get two new studioalbums and a live one that really holds up to the legacy. Many great songs to be found on these!

James Shaffer

They really were great albums. And how about Bucks clever,, Still Burning,, sequel to The 1980 hit Burning for you. I believe he definitely had his wife in mind while writing that masterpiece. They were creative as any other band out there if not more and on tour forever. Go BOC.

Gordon Baker

You are spot on.....Buck's guitar magic just gets stronger & stronger

john peters

FUCK- YEAH...

Del Shoemaker

Proved that they were still out there and making great music!

Kellen Rist

+Georg Hägglund They definitely made a great comeback.

robert hughes

entire album is a masterpiece that was totally ignored by main stream radio and the media!!!

Lukas Kucera

robert hughes it's too good for main stream

RoeserFan1

Totally agree Robert. It is one of their best albums. 10 for 10 songs are good, with several positively great and a couple masterpieces. All of this 26 years after their first album. A remarkable achievement.
