    I think there might be a battle with the Van Halen bros... where they might be wrestling with the inner passion as musicians and artists to take their art (songwriting) to a level that they or their audience have not experienced before against the notion of relying on past acomplishments and creations (old songs, songwriting styles, and formulas) for expression. Maybe Ed and Al want to take =VH= to a level that they think best represents their artistic vision and value. It would be interesting to understand what their dad, Jan Van Halen, taught them at a early age of what a musician is and should be for themselves as well as their audience. It could explain why they have had such a hard time with singers...maybe they're just frustrated artistically. Maybe that's why Ed visits a therapist. Maybe Van Danniels (as FORD would say) was such a disaster..Ed's been frustrated...he has music to express that's in his head but his audience won't accept it unless it's in the style of 1981 and Ed doesn't want to regress back to those emotions because he was so out of it...he wanted to tell everybody to f*ck off and join KISS. To me...I don't give a sh*t what they feel... I just want some riffs...

    Alright!
    Haaa-ha-ha-ha!
    You say, I cannot get there from here, baby
    Then I don't care where I'm goin'
    Here's to your thin red line
    Mmm, I'm stepping over

    Thought you'd never miss me till I got a fat city address
    Non-stop talker, what a rocker
    Blue-eyed murder in a size five dress

    Change, nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, and ya hit the ground runnin'
    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'

    I know, I don't ask for permission
    This is my chance to fly
    Maybe enough ain't enough for you
    But it's my turn at a try

    Thought you'd never miss me till I got a fat city address
    Non-stop talker, what a rocker
    Blue-eyed murder in a size five dress

    Change, nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, and ya hit the ground running
    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'

    (Guitar Solo)

    Change, nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'
    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'

    Woo-hoo! Take a look at this!
    Hey man, that suit is you!
    Whoo-whee! You'll get some leg tonight for sure!
    Tell us how you do! Hoo hoo hoo!
    (Come on Dave, gimme a break)
    Hey hey hey hey! One break, comin' up!

    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'
    Changed, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'

    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
    Unchained, yeah ya hit the ground runnin'
    Change, ain't nothin' stays the same
