Direct Metal DMM® Mastering
Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) is an analogue audio disc mastering technique jointly developed by two German companies, Telefunken-Decca (TelDec) and Georg Neumann GmbH. The audio signal is cut directly to a copper disc whereby the traditional analogue audio disc master cutting process is cut into a lacquer-coated aluminum disc. The major advantage to DMM is the copper master disc can be plated to produce the required number of stampers using a one-step plating process. Lacquer master discs require electroforming a master ("Father"), mother and then stampers known as the traditional "three-step process." The DMM copper disc serves as the "mother" which bypasses the silvering process and two electroforming stages thus reducing the risk of introducing noise that can be generated in the traditional lacquer master process. The advantage of DMM over acetate lacquers are both sonic and practical because of the rigidity of the master disc medium and no groove wall bounce-back effects take place after the cutting, all of which preserves the original modulation details in the groove walls offering a better high end frequency playback and quieter surface noises.

    Finding My Way
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    Yeah, oh yeah!
    Ooh, said I,
    I'm comin' out to get you.
    Ooh, sit down.
    I'm comin' out to find you.
    Ooh, yeah. Ooh yeah.
    Findin' my way!

    I've been gone so long
    I've lost count of the years.
    Well, I sang some sad songs,
    oh yes, and cried some bad tears.

    Look out! I'm comin'.
    Whoa, whoa.
    Look out! I'm comin'.
    Whoa, yeah.

    I'm runnin',
    finding my way back home.
    Oh yeah!

    Yeah, oh yeah!
    Ooh, said I,
    I'm comin' back to look for you.
    Ooh, sit down.
    I'm goin' by the back door.
    Ooh, yeah. Ooh yeah.
    Findin' my way!

    You've done me no right,
    but you've done me some wrong.
    Left me lonely each night
    while I sing my sad song.

    Look out! I'm comin'.
    Whoa, whoa.
    Look out! I'm comin'.
    Whoa, yeah.

    I'm runnin',
    findin' my way back home.
    I'm comin'.
    Ooh, babe, I said I'm runnin'.
    Whoa, babe, I said I'm comin'
    to get you, mama.
    Said I'm runnin'.

    Ooh, babe, I said I'm comin'
    for you, babe.
    I said I'm runnin'.
    Ooh yes, babe, I said I'm comin'
    to get you, babe. I said I'm comin'.
    Ooh, yeah.

    I'm findin',
    I'm findin' my way back home.
    Well, I've had it for now,
    livin' on the road.
    Ooh, yeah.
    Ooh, yeah.

    Findin' my way!


    Need Some Love
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    I'm runnin' here,
    I'm runnin' there.
    I'm lookin' for a girl.
    'Cause there's nothin' I need,
    there's nothin' I want more
    in the whole wide world.

    Well, I need it quick
    and I need it now,
    before I start to fade away.
    That's why I'm searchin',
    that's why I'm lookin'
    each and ev'ry day.

    Oo, I need some love.
    I said I need some love!
    Oo yes, I need some love
    This feelin' I can't rise above.
    Yeah, yeah!

    Well I been hustlin' here,
    I been hustlin' there.
    I been searchin' for about a week.
    And I started feelin'
    this strange sensation.
    My knees are startin' gettin' weak.

    Well I need what keeps
    a young man alive;
    I'm sayin' I need it now.
    I'm gonna get the message
    across to you
    someway, somehow.

    Oo, I need some love.
    I said I need some love!
    Oo yes, I need some love
    This feelin' I can't rise above.
    Oo, yeah yeah!


    Take A Friend
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    Well, I'm lookin' at you,
    and I'm wond'rin' what you're gonna do.
    Looks like you got no friends,
    no one to stick with you till the end.

    Take yourself a friend.
    Keep 'em till the end.
    Whether woman or man,
    it makes you feel so good,
    so good.

    Yes, you think you're all right,
    and now you're lonely ev'ry night.
    Well, you need a friend,
    someone on whom you can always depend.

    Take yourself a friend.
    Keep 'em till the end.
    Whether woman or man,
    it makes you feel so good,
    so good.

    Yes, you need some advice.
    Well, let me put it to you nice.
    I said you need a friend,
    someone who'll stick with you to the end.

    Take yourself a friend.
    Keep 'em till the end.
    Whether woman or man,
    it makes you feel so good,
    so good.


    Here Again
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    I said I played this song
    so many times before
    that the melody keeps repeating
    growing new ideas,
    flowing chords and notes
    like a mountain river bleeding.

    Well, I say as I look back,
    And all the thoughts I've had,
    They reflect just what I'm learning.
    Yes, you know that the hardest part,
    Yes, I say it is to stay on top,
    On top of a world forever churning.

    Well, you say you can laugh,
    But I can see that your eyes are glass.
    Well, do you see, can't you see, what I'm feeling?
    Yes, I've seen your face before.
    Why, I've seen it everywhere,
    Showing up to me without a scent revealing.

    Well, I said will it ever change?
    Will it stay the same?
    I'd surely like to know before it's over.
    Well, I said I played some.
    I said it won't be long,
    Won't be long before I stop and play it over.

    Oh, oh I've, I've seen your face before.
    Is it ever gonna, ever gonna change again?
    Oh, oh I've, I've been in one place too long.
    Is it ever gonna, ever gonna change again?


    What You're Doing
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    Well, I see you standin' there
    with your finger in the air.
    Ev'rything we do,
    you wanna leave it up to you.

    Who do you think you are?
    You think you are a star,
    try'n' to run the town,
    always try'n' to put us down.

    Well, you think that you're right.
    You think you're out of sight.
    Tell me something, mister;
    why'd you have to make us so uptight?

    Well, you say you've been try'n'.
    You know that you're ly'n'.
    I think you need some groovin'.
    Who do you think you're foolin' now?

    Well, you better start changin'.
    You life needs rearrangin'.
    You better do some talkin'
    or you better do some walkin' now.

    Yeah, you think that you're right.
    You think you're out of sight.
    Tell me something, mister;
    why'd you have to make us so uptight?

    I know what you're doing,
    all that you been doin' wrong.
    I don't know what you're feelin',
    oh, but you been feelin' long.

    Well, you think that you're right.
    Tell me something, mister;
    why'd you have to make us so uptight?


    In The Mood
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee

    Hey now, baby,
    well, I like your smile.
    Won't you come and talk to me.
    for a little while.

    Well, you're makin' me crazy,
    the way you roll them eyes.
    Won't you come and sit with me.
    I'll tell you all my lies.

    Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.
    I feel I'm in the mood.
    Hey baby, the hour is late.
    I feel I've got to move.

    Well, hey now, baby,
    Don't you talk so fast.
    I'm just try'n' to make these good times,
    I'm try'n' to make it last.

    Ev'rything's getting hazy.
    Now honey, where'd you go?
    I just want to find out, baby,
    where'd you learn what you know?

    Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.
    I feel I'm in the mood.
    Hey baby, the hour is late.
    I feel I've got to move.

    Well, hey now, baby,
    said, I like your style.
    You really got me, baby,
    way down deep inside.

    Oo, you drive me crazy.
    Baby, you're the one.
    I just want to rock-and-roll you woman,
    until the night is gone.

    Hey baby, it's a quarter to eight.
    I feel I'm in the mood.
    Hey baby, the hour is late.
    I feel I've got to move.


    Before and After
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    Love won't see my comin'
    on a Sunday noon today.
    Still don't believe we're fadin',
    but now the world should wait.

    And now you're fina'lly list'nin'
    to what I have to say.
    Well, the time is right,
    and it is today.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Maybe we could talk about it
    and try to get it straight.
    After all these years, baby,
    maybe it's too late.

    But I really need to
    have you by my side,
    And that's the only feelin',
    baby, I can't hide.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Well you aren't list'nin',
    I ain't talkin',
    we ain't gettin' nowhere.

    I keep tryin' to get
    through to you baby.
    All you do is stare.

    I don't wanna see that.
    I need you by my side.
    Well, I don't want to be your lover.
    Babe, I wanna be your man.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Well, now my story's over, baby,
    and I ain't gonna tell it twice.
    Well, you better start list'nin',
    or get out of my life.

    Or you're gonna be left out,
    I said left out in the cold.
    Yeah, before you get my lovin',babe,
    you'll be too old.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Well, I'm talkin' to you baby.
    Well, I said
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.


    Working Man
    Music and Lyrics: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

    I get up at seven, yeah,
    and I go to work at nine.
    I got no time for livin'.
    Yes, I'm workin' all the time.

    It seems to me
    I could live my life
    a lot better than I think I am.
    I guess that's why they call me,
    they call me the workin' man.

    They call me the workin' man.
    I guess that's what I am.

    I get home at five o'clock,
    and I take myself out a nice, cold beer.
    Always seem to be wond'rin'
    why there's nothin' goin' down here.

    It seems to me
    I could live my life
    a lot better than I think I am.
    I guess that's why they call me,
    they call me the workin' man.

    They call me the workin' man.
    I guess that's what I am.

    Well they call me the workin' man.
    I guess that's what I am.
