1. Shame On You

[Rage]

LEADER OF THE STATE
NOW, AS THERE'S THE TIME FOR CHANGES
THE GROWING FEAR AND HATE
IT WILL COST YOUR HEAD, DICTATOR

GROWN FROM THE HEART
BURSTING OUT TO BREAK THE SILENCE
A WILL TO BE FREE
PEOPLE HAVE REMEMBERED THE SUN

OH, YOU KNOW IT'S UP TO YOU
SO MANY YEARS - IT'S MUCH TOO LONG THAT YOU HAVE FOOLED
A WHOLE NATION

SLINK AWAY AND SET US FREE
WE LIVE OUR LIVES AS IT'S MEANT TO BE
YOU KNOW INSIDE THAT IT'S TRUE, SO SHAME ON YOU

YOU AND YOUR PACK
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SO SELFISH
LOST FROM THE START
INJUSTICE YOUR BEST COMPANION

NO, YOU CANNOT SAVE YOUR SKIN
'CAUSE EVERY DAY A NEW LIFE WILL BEGIN
AND YOU WON'T BE IN

SLINK...




2. Don't Fear The Winter





3. Certain Days

[Rage]

WHEN I REMEMBER WHAT HAPPEND THAT LEAD ME RIGHT HERE
WHAT MADE ME LONELY AND FORCED ME TO DISAPPEAR
THERE WERE PERIOD IN MY LIFE
THAT CAME FROM MY DARKEST DEPTHS, BEYOND THE EDGE
LIKE A DELIRIUM I COULDN'T HELP, I DRIFTED ASIDE, IT WASN'T RIGHT

TIME, TIME HAS SLIPPED AWAY
LIFE WAS A DISTANT HAZE
THIS WAS ON CERTAIN DAYS
I, I HAD LOST MY WAY
GOT LOST WITHOUT A TRACE
THIS WAS ON CERTAIN DAYS, I WENT MAD...

I CAN RECALL THE DAYS WHEN THINGS WERE FINE
EVERYONE WAS HAPPY ENJOYING THEIR TIME
BUT THE FIRST TIME IT CAME OVER ME I HAD LOST MY FRIENDS, I DID HARM TO THEM
THE JUDGES TOLD ME I WAS INSANE, I TRIED TO KILL, I TRIED TO KILL!

TIME, TIME HAD SLIPPED AWAY
LIFE - A DISTANT HAZE
THIS WAS ON CERTAIN DAYS
I, I HAD LOST MY WAY
GOT LOST WITHOUT A TRACE
THIS WAS ON CERTAIN DAYS, I WENT MAD...




4. Suicide





5. Refuge

[Rage]

THIS IS MINE, HERE'S WHERE MY HOME IS
I DON'T WANT TO LET YOU BREAK INTO MY WORLD
ALL MY LIFE I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR SOMETHING
THAT'S MY OWN, I'M SO GLAD I FOUND IT NOW
DON'T YOU STEP ON THIS GROUND

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE AN INCH OF MY FREEDOM
I'LL LOSE MY SOUL IF YOU STEAL MY REFUGE
LEAVE MY CLOUD AND STAY AWAY
THIS IS MY REFUGE
PLAY YOUR DIRTY TRICKS, MY FRIEND
BUT LEAVE MY REFUGE

I GROW STRONGER AND YOU FEEL SMALLER
GUESS THAT'S YOUR REASON FOR TAKING UP MY TIME
WITH EVERY SECRET THAT YOU MAKE PUBLIC
YOUR INFLUENCE ON MY LIFE GROWS, AIN'T THIS TRUE?
DON'T STEP ON THIS GROUND

I DON'T WANT TO LOSE AN INCH OF MY FREEDOM
I'LL LOSE MY SOUL IF YOU STEAL MY REFUGE
LEAVE MY CLOUD AND STAY AWAY
THIS IS MY REFUGE
PLAY YOUR DIRTY TRICKS, MY FRIEND
BUT LEAVE MY REFUGE
LEAVE MY REFUGE




6. Baby I'm Your Nightmare

[Rage]

WHEN IT IS NIGHT AND THERE IS DARKNESS IN YOUR ROOM
YOU HEAR A SOUND WITH SHARPENED EARS
THEN IT IS ME 'CAUSE I RETURN FROM TIME TO TIME
AND I HAVE HEARD YOUR SILENT TEARS

YOU LOCK YOUR BEDROOM DOOR AND CLOSE THE WINDOW
INDEED YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS NO WAY TO HID
I GET IN FROM THE DOOR ON THE BACKSIDE

BABY, I'M YOUR NIGHTMARE
BUT I KNOW THAT YOU WILL LIKE THE CREEPS
'CAUSE NOTHING THRILLS LIKE SCARY DEEDS
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL LIKE THE CREEPS
YOU KNOW YOU'LL LIKE THE CREEPS

WE LEARNED TO KNOW EACH OTHER MANY YEARS AGO
AND IN THOSE DAYS I WAS YOUR MAN
WE NEVERCOULD HAVE BEEN A COUPLE, YOU AND ME
BUT STILL I DO THE BEST I CAN

TO MAKE YOUR SHEETS ALIVE AND FILL THE SPACE UP
THAT ALL THE OTHERS STILL WERE LEAVING BEHIND
TO MAKE THAT SWEAT IS RUNNING DOWN YOUR SPINE

BABY...

WE MAKE YOUR SHEETS ALIVE AND FILL THE SPACE UP
THAT ALL THE OTHERS STILL WERE LEAVING BEHIND
TO MAKE THAT SWEAT IS RUNNING DOWN OUR SPINE

BABY...

YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T GET OVER ME
'CAUSE I CAN SET DESIRE FREE
WHEN MOONLIGHT'S SHINING THROUGH THE TREES
I'M COMING FROM YOUR FANTASIES
YOU NEED THAT DIRTY MAD DOG, ME
YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT, YOU SEE
AND WHEN IT'S DREAMTIME I'LL RETURN
TO FEED THE FLAME IN YOU, IT BURNS FOR ME
'CAUSE I'M YOUR NIGHTMARE

BABY...




7. Down By Law

[Rage]

HELP ME, I MUST REACH THE BORDER
I RUN FROM THE KEEPERS OF ORDER
THEY HAVE LOCKED ME UP JUST FOR NOTHING

HELP ME, I'M DOWN BY LAW
HELP ME, I'M DOWN BY LAW
WATCH OUT, THEY'RE AT YOUR DOOR
HELP ME, I'M DOWN BY LAW

THERE'S NO CHANCE TO DEFEND
WHEN POWER IS IN WRONG HAND

ME, I COME OUT OF THE DIRT, I GOT NOTHING
NO, THE COPS, THEY WERE LOOKING FOR A FIGHT
AND I'M A VICTIM OF DENUNCIATION

HELP...

MY FORTUNE IS A PLIGHT
WHERE'S LAW THERE IS NO RIGHT

"KILL THIS BASTARD HUNT HIM TO DEATH!"
"OH, HAVE MERCY!" - "NO, YOU WON'T BE FREE!"

NOW I'M A CRIMINAL SUBJECT
WHY? MY LIFE'S A MESS, NO TURNUNG BACK
JUST BECAUSE ARBITRARINESS RULES THIS LAND

HELP...




8. Nevermore

[Rage]

HER MOTHER TOLD HER EVERYDAY: "NEVER LOSE CONTROL
WHATEVER THEN MAY COME YOUR WAY, A GOOD GIRL TAKES IT ALL."
AND ALL THE YEARS SHE HELD HER PEACE AND FOLLOWED EVERY RULE
BUT THEN DEPRESSION DRIED HER HEART
AND NOW SHE'S SCREAMING OUT

NEVERMORE - NEVER WE'LL FORGET
NEVERMORE - ONE DAY YOU'LL REGRET

HE USED TO BE A FOLLOWER
AND DID WHAT HE WAS TOLD
WHATEVER THEY SQUEEZED OUT OF HIM
A GOOD MAN BEARS IT ALL

BUT ONE DAY HE WAS IN THEIR WAY
DID NOT FIT IN THEIR PLAN
THEY TRIED TO KICK HIM FROM THE BOAT
AND NOW HE'S SCREAMING OUT

NEVERMORE - NEVER WE'LL FORGET
NEVERMORE - ON DAY YOU'LL REGRET

NEVER WE'LL FORGET, NO!
NEVERMORE - NEVER EVERMORE...




9. Firestorm

[Rage]

THIS PLACE, HOME FOR ALL GENERATIONS, NEVER'S BEE TOO SMALL
WHEN ALL LIFE WORKED HAND IN HAND
THE CENTURIES PASSED ONE BY ONE
WITHOUT CHANGING THE CIRCUMSTACES
THAT WE NEEDED TO BE THERE

LIKE A FIRESTORM
WHEN ALL HOME DIES AND FEAR IS BORN
TO FEED THE FIRESTORM

LIKE A FIRESTROM
THAT BURNS THE GROUND YOU'RE STANDING ON
WE'LL FEED THE FIRESTORM

AND THEN - SLOWLY BUT SURELY -
EXPLORERS AND INVENTORS STEPPED INTO
THE SYSTEM THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
THAT'S WHEN THE TROUBLE BEGAN AND WHEN THE TIMES MARCHED ON
THEY HAD LEARNED HOW TO DESTROY

LIKE...

THE END OF THE STORY IS: NOTHING'S IMPOSSIBLE
AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE AFRAID OF
APOCALYPTIC SIGNS, OUR HOMESTEAD STANDS IN FLAME
GUESS WE MISSED THE LESSON MODESTY

LIKE...




10. Solitary Man

[Rage]

SINCE A WHILE I THOUGHT 'BOUT LEAVING HERE
I CAN SEE NO WAY TO GET IT CLEAR
UNDER YOU I FEEL MISUNDERSTOOD
IN THIS RESPECTABLE NEIGHBOURHOOD

HEY, DON'T LOOK FOR ME NO MORE
'CAUSE I WON'T BE COMING HOME

I'M JUST A SOLITARY MAN
I'M GONNA LEAVE YOU NOW ALONE
WELL, I'M A SOLITARY MAN

I FEEL SO STRANGE HERE, DO YOU KNOW?

I HAVE HEARD THEY'RE TELLIN' TALES 'BOUT ME
FIND ME WEIRD AND MOST UNUSUALLY
CAN'T YOU SEE THAT I'M JUST DOING MY WAY?
LIVE IT OUT WHAT YOU ALL JUST PRETEND

I DON'T NEED NO COMPANY
IF I DID I'D LOOK FOR BETTER

I'M...

IT MAY SEEM STRANGE TO YOU, I KNOW

I DON'T NEED THIS BULLSHIT ANYMORE
I'M STEPPING OUT, I'M GONNA CLOSE THE DOOR
WILL I EVER REACH THE POINT OF IT
WHEN I WEAR A SUIT THAT DOES NOT FIT?

I'M...




11. Enough Is Enough

[Rage]

WE SEND SATTELITES TO SPACE
AND WE OWN THE BIGGEST MISSILES
WE GIVE MILLIONS OF SUPPORT FOR TECHNOLOGY
BUT STILL WE CAN'T EVEN LIVE IN PEACE WITH OUR NEIGHBOUR
MOST OF US ARE INSANE OF NEUROSES

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - YOU CAN CONTROL
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW

FASTER - THIS WORLD IS HEADING STRAIGHT INTO A BIG DISASTER
TELL ME WHEN WILL IT REACH ITS END?
BIGGER - WHEN MONEYMAKERS STAMP OUR SOULS WITH TECHNOLOGY
BELIEVE ME, THIS GOT TO REACH AN END
ALL THIS MISSERY IN OUR MINDS WILL BREAK FREE, YOU WILL SEE...

SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY - SEEK THE KEY FOR OUR SALVATION
THIS SCIENCE NEEDS MORE SUPPORT, IT COULD HELP THAT
THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE SINGLE PERSON CAN GROW
BUT WHO PAYS
'CAUSE IF WE STAY WEAK WE ARE MUCH BETTER TO USE

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - YOU CAN CONTROL
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH - RIGHT FROM THE START

FASTER...

SCIENCE IS ONLY AS GOOD OR AS BAD
AS THE PEOPLE WHO USE IT
AND IF WE WANT TO HAVE A TOMORROW
WE SHOULD TAKE TEN PERCENT OF THE MONEY FROM OUR ARMIES
AND DEVELOP THE MINDS OF OUR NATIONS

ENOUGH...

FASTER - A VICTORY 'BOUT FEAR, THIS IS THE GREATEST GLORY
BELIEVE ME, THE FIRST STEP HAS BEEN MADE
BIGGER - THE REAL PROGRESS - ANOTHER QUALITY IN OUR WAY OF LIFE
FROM QUANTITY TO QUALITY
AWAY FROM MISERY IN OUR MINDS, MAKE THEM FREE, IT'S GOT TO BE...




12. Invisible Horizons

[Rage]

FLYING HIGH, SETTING SINGS
WE GOT THE FUTURE IN OUR VEINS
BUT STILL AL ONG WAY TO GO

ALL WE KNOW HAS LOST ITS SIZE
IF YOU'RE LOOKING DOWN FROM SPACE
YOUR PROBLEMS ARE UNREAL AT ONE BLOW

DOES IT MAKE A SENSE AT LAST
TO LEARN THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST?
INFECTED WITH AN OLD DISEASE

AND TODAY TOMORROW WAITS
IN ANOTHER GALAXY
WAITING TO TAKE US AWAY

ARE WE THE ONLY TRUTH?
HOW CAN WE BE SO SMUG
LIKE A CHILD PLAYING GOD...

I WISH I KNEW
IS IT STILL FAR TO GO - INVISIBLE HORIZONS
WHAT IS BEHIND
THE PICTURE IN MY MIND - INVISIBLE HORIZONS

IT IS MANY AGES AWAY
A LIFE THAT'S FAR BEYOND OUR RAYS
THAT WE SEND OUT TO GET A SIGN

A MILLION PLACES THERE TO BE
IT'S ONLY LOGICAL, YOU SEE
THAT WE'RE NOT THE CENTRE OF CREATION

ARE WE...

I WISH...
