Lyrics

1. PSYCHO TIME BOMB PLANET EARTH

Purify my soul
Someone clear my eyes
Tell me if the grass looks greener
On the other side
1994
Rotten to the core
Power seeking parasites
Outside your door

Who'll offend you
Bend you
Condemn you
Tell you how to run your life
Steal away your prid

[Chorus:]
Throw your face into the dirt
Psycho-time-bomb-planet-earth
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Tell me if the sky is falling down

Hey you dogs of war
Defenders of the flag
Tell'em just to shove it up
And burn their body bags
Sex kill terror anarchy
Kiss the dirt taste the pain
Pass the panic to the population now

I see torture
Betrayal
And disorder
Mama let me out of here
Aint no place for me no!

[Chorus]

Going through the mud
An endless flood
A sea of blood
Hatred and madness
The demons seed is sown
Beneath your feet
Inside your head

[Chorus]

I can't stop this ship from sinking
Lord I hear the bombs are thkking
Mirror, Mirror on the wall
Tell me if the sky is falling down




2. ROCK THE HOUSE

People always blame us for the things we like to do
Ever since we jumped this wild and wacko roundabout
Supersonic youth a restless breed that remains
Our generation's outcast, and we love it loud

If you wanna break up
If you got your mind made up
Cast away your foolish pride
Ready for take off
We're gonna shake it up
You let it rock, we'll let you ride

Rock the house
Push it to the limit
Rock the house
Tonight we're gonna loose control

I don't need no crack to keep my feed above the ground
'Cause I'm all fired up with an electric overdose
I want to hear the sound of screaming guitars
And the pounding beat of drums that goes from head to toe

If you wanna break up
If you got your mind made up
Cast away your foolish pride
Ready for take off
We're gonna shake it up
You let it rock, we'll let you ride

Rock the house
Push it to the limit
Rock the house
Rock it till you loose control
You're gonna loose it

Rock is the drug
We've got enough to share
You want it. We got it
We've got the will to let it roll

[Chorus]




3. RISE

So many promises
From master to slave
All lies and emptiness
From the cradle to the grave
We don't need words but action
We want it here
We want it now

What do you think they're doing
For you and me
Better save your life from ruin

[Chorus:]
Rise up
Cry out to the nation
Rise up
Break out off your shell
Rise up
TV generation
Rise up
Go out give'em hell
You've got to clean your claws
Don't take no more

Don't have to hide away
From the colour of your skin
And you don't have to bare the cross
And suffer from their sins

Got to believe in something
Though you have faith in nothing
Life's like a bullet to your head
You've got to come out

What's your conclusion
Now do you believe
In a silent revolution

Rise up
Cry out to the nation
Rise up
Break out from your shell
Rise up
TV generation
Rise up
Go out give them hell
Rise up

Don't put your trust in the flames of the flag
Who's gonna wash of he blood form the tracks
When do the lion
Lie down with the lamb
When do we drop down
The guns form our hands
You see we build this world on solid ground
Do you wanna see it all come down

[Chorus]




4. WALK AWAY

Here we are standing at a crossroads baby
Can't seem to make a move
Don't know which way to choose
We used to fly into the heavens
On the wings of an angel
An everlasting fire
An eternal cruise
Those were the good times

Stolen moments underneath a full moon rising
We both laid down with love
And woke up with lies
Gonna give it one more try

Here we are picking up the pieces
Trying to get this puzzle together
We need a cure for this disease
A heeling hand

Though our love has come to a dead end street
And we're stuck where happiness
And heartache meet

[Chorus:]
You see we can't give it up
It's not too late
You need a little love
Don't hesitate
I swear I'll give it all I've got
To make you stay
So don't you walk away

Once a time and place
There was a bond between us
Something sacred something innocent
We need a star that doesn't fade
And wherever it might lead us
We gotta follow in our hearts direction
I got a feeling girl
We're gonna crash into love

How can you back down baby
When love is all around
And it's here to stay
I'll be determined to defend
A tower of strength

Though the best laid plans
Sometimes go astray
There's a guarantee that love will find a way

[Chorus]

A heart needs love
Like the desert needs the rain
And I need you girl
Each and every day
We'll do the things babe
That other fantasies
Women we just need a little confidence
In each other




5. SCREAM

Don't remember now
Can't recall somehow
Black holes spotting your memory
So you fell from grace
Tears run down your face
See yourself as the enemy

And now you find yourself
Along the road to nowhere
To find the road leads back to you
Into obscurity
Where darkness blinds in despair
You're running scared
Inside the world where you live
You can be who you wanna be
Look in the mirror
See what you wanna see

[Chorus:]
Scream
Until some one hears your calling
Scream
We don't hear nothing at all

Needle kills the pain
Nothing cures the blame
Feel the fear rising from the deep
Better taste of sin
Razor cross your skin
Better pray for your soul to keep

What do your see outside
The windows that surrounds you
Around your twisted human shell
Now do you hear what other people
Say about you
Look at yourself and suffer
Dive into hell you unholy and rotten
Lay down among the abandoned forgotten now

[Chorus]

And when you sleep at night
Your friends will come alive
You cannot run you cannot hide

Escape from who's inside you
Manic depressive gloom
Reflects your mental wounds
It's creeping up behind you
The serpent crawls inside you
Forever to decline you




6. YELLOW RAIN

Tears in his eyes
The fear, oh it never dies
The echoes of the past
Are rolling on and on
For those who were left back
Tomorrow never comes
Oh, it never comes

And after all these years
Something still remains
The forever repercussions
The eternal pain
Another sleepless night
And another break of day
It doesn't matter anymore
His life will fade away
In yellow rain

They crossed the water
Back in '69
They fought for glory
Behind the enemy lines
Fighting for the nations
Pushed into the war
Without not even knowing why
Or what they're fighting for

Oh, oh
Out on the plains
Some are the masters
Some are the slaves
Oh, oh
War is a never-ending mission
You're just a pawn in a game
Where the number is your name

Left home as heroes
Fools when they returned
Blamed for all the damage
And the villages they burned
Betrayed by their leaders
Murderers they were called
Denounced as crazy maniacs
And locked behind the walls

Oh, oh
Out on the plains
Some are the masters
Some are the slaves
Oh, oh
War is a never-ending mission
They are the victims
Doomed to die

In yellow rain
We've seen them dying in the fields
In yellow rain
Just like a knight
Who's in a fight, without a shield

Oh no
Try to forget, but it just won't go
Oh no
Forever in their memories
Oh no
Hell's just some thousand miles away
Oh no no

Oh, oh
Out on the plains
Some are the masters
Some are the slaves
Oh, oh
War is a never-ending mission
They are the victims
Doomed to die

[Chorus]




7. SIN DECADE

We break on through
And step into a new decade
With no regrets for the mistakes
We've made
Prophets and preachers warning
There'll be hell to pay
What do we care anyway

Unfaithful children
Whose blood runs cold
All mighty kingdom
Immortal souls

[Chorus]
Figure it out
We're guilty of the crimes that we create
Figure it out
We rush into another sin-decade

The millions living on
The seven deadly sins
Thinking salvation
Must be close at hand
Godforsaken fools
Born to break the rules
Our fate is written in the sand

Unfaithful children.........

[Chorus]

Face Armageddon
You're trapped in the hands of time
Pray for confession
Accused of the fatal crime

[Chorus]




8. SAVAGE HEART

I walk the lonely plains
Drift into the distance
Out on a rainy shore
Somewhere in time
Recall a thousand names
All of those we're missing
Out there I'm searching for
A little peace of mind

Who am I to rely on a broken dream
Just a loner in the night

Whenever we loose someone
Whenever we say goodbye
And after the fire's gone
When every flame has died
There will beat a savage heart

Another soldier falls
Dies for God and country
When there's no time for talking
Its time for the guns
Out where the wild wind blows
I'm free as a bird
If I could only transfer
Dreams into words

I'm aware; I'll be there, when the morning comes
Guided by the inner light

Whenever we loose someone
Whenever we say goodbye
And after the fire's gone
When every flame has died
There is still a savage heart




9. NO MESSIAH

You want me a simple man
To lead you on to the Promised Land
So unreal don't you see
Behind the mask
There's a devil in me

I'm rolling thunder
I'm sun I'm shine
Slowly slipping under
I'm more than meets the eye

[Chorus:]
I love I hate
I swear I lie
I'm just like any other guy
I'm right I'm wrong
A prodigal son
Set souls on fire
I'm no messiah

And you won't like
What you'll find
Sometimes I've got a sick mind of mind
In these arms
You'll be sad
Cause I feel good when you're feeling bad

You see I'm complicated
Not just black and white
I'm devastated
You see I'm Jeckyll and Hyde

[Chorus]

If you step into my world my friend
You'll find another part of me
Gotta sin to be saved
On the other side of life you'll se

[Chorus]

I win I loose
The naked truth
So hard to face
When you can't choose
I've never worn
A crown of thorns
I'm no messiah




10. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME

In the summer we'd be crazy
We'd fool around all the time
Oh how I loved that girl
When she was mine
But now she'd left me
For another guy
And it really brought me down
For without that girl
I was lost and found

Oh darling please don't hurt me this way
Oh darling please don't leave me
Oh darling please don't hurt me this way
Oh darling please don't leave me

Now I get messed up
And I fool around
But there's no fun anymore
They say times must change
But I'm not so sure
Lost lovers of summer
As we go our separate way
Remember memories you owe
Won't bring back those special days

[Chorus]




11. LOVEGAMES

Now wait a minute baby
Don't leave me, don't go
We'll work it out like we've done before
Another lonely night
Without you by my side
Can't take it, can't take it no more

A romantic chase
Two hearts out of phase
When love strikes, I'm out of control
Frustrating my mind
You know love is blind
Reflecting what's deep in my soul

The passion that rules
A feeling so strong
I just can't turn away from you
I may be a fool
But this can't go wrong
I was made for you

Love games
Two people together
Love games
Playing to win
Love games
We're dealing forever in sin
Forever in sin

Caught up in the game
And there's no one to blame
Inside this casino of love
Just messing around
With the face of a clown
Playing until I've had enough

You're rolling the dice
I'm stripped by your eyes
I can't stand the way you're teasing
As sly as a snake
You got all that it takes
You'll make a heart stop beating

[Chorus]

Since the first time you touched me
Just one time too much
Brought me down on my knees
Since the first time we kissed
I was more than possessed
I was eager to please

[Chorus]




12. FUTURE WORLD

In the distant
Far away
Trying to figure it out
But I can't explain
Now we see it
Now we don't
We're floating around
In the unknown zone

Watch the starlight
Shooting for the sky
Reaching out to catch
A piece of Paradise
Is it true
Or just imaginations
Visions twist around my mind
And brings me shelter from the night

Where do we go
Where do we go from here
When do we finally disappear

Oh future world
There's nothing left to save
They blew it all away
Future world
Tonight we're riding on
The final escape

Is it heaven
Is it hell
Is it the afterworld
Or just something else
Are we prisoners in Nowhereland
Where darkness is your only friend
Kept inside this wall of sleep
Have we fallen into a deep freeze

Left the wastelands
Broke the lines
Crossed the border to another time
Being drawn by the fates
Who run our destinies
Stranded in a state of life
Where dreams become reality

[Chorus]

In troubled times
We saw the writing on the wall
We heard the fools
Who brought the human race to fall
We'll build another generation
And not destroy the God creation

[Chorus]

Take your chances
Turn the key
Open up the doors
To another history
Here's no questions
No demands
Here's the future
This is wonderland




13. BACK TO BACK

Ride

They came at dawn
into the morning light
black shadows ridin' on the mist
prepared for battle
swords were shinin' bright
filled with anger and harm
came to kill not to charm

The sound of metal
screamin' in the air
the time has come where justice rules
the endless victims
looking up in fear
now who were the fools

[Chorus:]
Oh here they come
riders of the sun
and they will fight
back to back - back to back

They're fighting hard
their way of victory
dead bodies lying on the ground
they are the soldiers of eternity
and their swords spinnin' around

[Chorus]

They're fightin' with power, ready to ride let go

[Solo]

They got it all
they'll never fall
but they will fight
The night is fallin'
light will disappear
a magic silence fills the place
could read the warning
shinin' crystal clear
now they were lost for the chase

[Chorus]

No - no - no - no




14. RED HOT AND HEAVY

Don't try to talk to your mother
she won't understand
she says you're crazy, boy you're running wild
don't try to talk to your father
he won't give a damn
saying you're lazy and a problem child

You've got to be strong
if you will survive, stay alive

Well they can kick they can beat
knock us down to the ground
but we will rise and we will march again
cause we are the heat, we are the sound
of rolling thunder in the yeah

And so we are here
and we won't give up, we won't stop

[Chorus:]
Red hot and heavy - the way it's gonna be
Red hot and heavy - now don't you see
Red hot and heavy - we're bringin' you down
so touch the ground

You know the big revolution
it's gonna be so
out in the streets we're gonna shout it out
you know the final solution
it's rock'n roll
that's what we need and we will keep it loud

And so we are here
for a night on town
rock this city down

[Chorus]
