Living After Midnight
Judas Priest
Living after midnight, rockin’ to the dawn
Lovin’ ‘til the morning, then I’m gone, I’m gone
I took the city ‘bout one A.M,
Loaded, loaded
I’m all geared up to score again,
Loaded, loaded
I come alive in the neon light
That’s when I make my moves right
Living after midnight, rockin’ to the dawn
Lovin’ ‘til the morning, then I’m gone, I’m gone
Got gleaming chrome, reflecting steel,
Loaded, loaded
Ready to take on every deal,
Loaded, loaded
My pulse is racing, I’m hot to take
This motor’s revved up, fit to break
Living after midnight, rockin’ to the dawn
Lovin’ ‘til the morning, then I’m gone, I’m gone
I’m aiming for ya,
I’m gonna floor ya
My body’s coming
All night long
The air’s electric, sparkin’ power,
loaded, loaded
I’m getting hotter by the hour,
loaded, loaded

Would you look at all that cultural appropriation.

\m/, heck yeah! ,\m/


#5

Is it time to explain the difference between punching up and punching down again?


#6

BRB, moving to Botswana. I can be their token white male!


#7

Being prepared to brave the heat in Botswana in leather pants and a bike jacket is so fucking Metal, I can’t even.


#8

I was going to say much the same thing but I did a search beforehand and found that much of Botswana is fairly mild, relatively speaking, even during the summer months of October through January.

Bikers wear full leathers in the American Southwest and from what I read it’s similar climate with inverted calendar seasons.

Fuck me, this stuff isn’t bad at all. Thanks internet!


#10

Huh. The more you know, eh? I’m sure I’d still be sweating buckets even sporting nothing but shorts and a sunshade, mind.


#11

A beautiful woman in biker gear certainly isn’t the general public’s idea of Africa. Changing stereotypes, one metal stud at a time.


#12

That is just so fucking awesome, I think my internet has reached its peak for the day and I’ve only been awake for an hour.


#13

White people steal rock and roll from blacks, black leather and studs from the gay bondage scene, and then black people from a country where homosexuality is illegal steal the final result from Americans.

It’s almost poetic.
