Play With Fire
Well you've got no diamonds
but you got your petty goals
and your poison's got no vial
you let everybody know
but can you play with me?
Can you play with fire?
Someone is dealing diamonds
but they've got a hollow core
and your poison's turned to medicine
you don't want diamonds no more
no you don't, so you can
play with me
now you're playing with fire
This is a cover of the Rolling Stones tune penned by Jagger/Richards;
with heavily modified lyrics and music. Quite often the band would
pass out sparklers to be ingnited during the jam-out segment of the song.
Originally released on the "HE-HO" album (1984)
re-released on the CD re-issue compilation "Songs of Reverie and Ruin" (1996)
