Lyrics

1. TOMORROW'S DREAM

Well i'm leaving tomorrow at daybreak
Catch the fastest train around nine
Yes i'm leaving the sorrow and heartache
Before it takes me away from my mind

Send me love and i may let you see me
Send me hopes that can spin in my head
But if you really want me to answer
I can only let you know when i'm dead

When sadness fills my days
It's time to turn away
And then tomorrow's dreams
Become reality to me

So realize i'm much better without you
You're not the one and only thing in my heart
I'll just go back to pretending i'm living
So this time i'm gonna have to depart




2. SWEET LEAF

Alright now!
Won't you listen?

When i first met you didn't realize
I can't forget you or your surprise
You introduced me to my mind
And left me wanting you and your kind

I love you. Oh you know it

My life was empty forever on a down
Until you took me showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf - though you can't hear

Come on now - try it out

Straight people don't know what you're about
They put you down and shut you out
You gave to me a new belief
And soon the world will love you sweet leaf




3. KILLING YOURSELF TO LIVE

Well people look and people stare
Well i don't think that i even care
You work your life away and what do they give?
You're only killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live
Just take a look around you what do you see
Pain, suffering, and misery
It's not the way that the world was meant
It's a pity you don't understand
Killing yourself to live
Killing yourself to live
I'm telling you
Believe in me
Nobody else will tell you
Open your eyes
And see the lies, oh yeah
You think i'm crazy and baby
I know that it's true
Before that you know it i think
That you'll go crazy too
I don't know if i'm up or down
Whether black is white or blue is brown
The colors of my life are all different somehow
Little boy blue's a big girl now
So you think it's me who's strange
But you've never had to make the change
Never give your trust away
You'll end up paying till your dying day




4. CORNUCOPIA

Too much in the truth they say
Keep it 'till another day
Let them have their little game
Illusion helps to keep them sane

Let them have their little toys
Fast sports cars and motor noise
Exciting in their plastic place
Frozen food in a concrete maze

You're gonna go insane
I'm trying to save your brain

I don't know what's happening
My head's all torn inside
People say i'm heavy
They don't know what i hide

Take a life, it's going cheap
Kill someone, no one will weep
Freedom's yours, just pay your dues
We just want your soul to use

You're gonna go insane
I'm trying to save your brain




5. SNOWBLIND

What you get and what you see
Things that don't come easily
Feeling happy in my vein
Icicles within my brain
(cocain)

Something blowing in my head
Winter's ice, it soon will spread
Death would freeze my very soul
Makes me happy, makes me cold

My eyes are blind but i can see
The snowflakes glisten on the tree
The sun no longer sets me free
I feel there's no place freezing me

Let the winter sun shine on
Let me feel the frost of dawn
Fill my dreams with flakes of snow
Soon i'll feel the chilling glow

Don't you think i know what i'm doing
Don't tell me that it's doing me wrong
You're the one who's really a loser
This is where i feel i belong

Crystal world with winter flowers
Turns my day to frozen hours
Lying snowblind in the sun
Will my ice age ever come?




6. CHILDREN OF THE GRAVE

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world they have to live in
Oh! The hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
And told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
And love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sunrise of tomorrow bring in peace in any way
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

So you children of the world listen to what say
If you want a better place to live in spread
The world today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
Or your children of today are children of the grave




7. WAR PIGS

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!
Now in darkness, world stops turning
As the war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has sturck the hour
Day of judgement, god is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
All right now!




8. WICKED WORLD

The world today is such a wicked place
Fighting going on between the human race
People got to work just to earn their bread
While people just across the sea
Are counting their dead

A politician's job they say is very high
'Cos he has to choose who's got to go and die
They can put a man on the moon quite easy
While people here on earth are dying of old diseases

A woman goes to work every day after day
She just goes to work just to earn her pay
Child sitting crying by a life that's harder
He doesn't even know who is his father




9. PARANOID

Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think i'm insane because i am frowning all the time
All day long i think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Think i'll lose my mind if i don't find something to pacify
Can you help me, occupy my brain?
Oh yeah
I need someone to show me the things in life that i can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness, i must be blind
Make a joke and i will sigh and you will laugh and i will cry
Happiness i cannot feel and love to me is so unreal
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life i wish i could but it's too late
