Pretty Maids

Spooked tracks



[ Instrumental ]


It's killing me
Distinctively they're calling the game
They force me down
We're dragged around
All numbers and names

Leave us in confusion
Like pigs on the run
Chasin' an illusion
We're daughters and sons
Who long to be needed
We need to be loved

We wanna live
It's a freakshow out here
We wanna live
It's a freakshow out here

They're tramps and thieves
Unfaithfully they're feeding the flames
Beyond their lies
Majestic smiles
Beneath the remains

Solitary youth
All sisters and brothers
Hurt by the truth
Have faith in each other
We won't be divided
We'll all stand united


Look at your leaders
Sow bad blood between us
They promise you heaven
And sent you to hell
Under the surface
They're all crooks and murderers
And all of their might I despise
I can't believe my eyes



They shout in the streets of Rangoon
A young revolution in bloom
Uprising among the Chinese
For justice and freedom of speech

Stand up in line
Speak out your mind
Fight for your right to believe
Leave your misery
Die with dignity
Cry for justice when you long for it
Want it

Dead or alive
Gonna hold your fire high
Stand up for your reasons
Dead or alive
It's a game of do or die
In your fight for freedom

Oppress you with muscle and might
They fear the rebellion in sight
With evil tyrannic regimes
They rule but they can't kill your dreams

Scream it out loud
They're deaf to the crowd
Ignores your demands to be free
Free and break your bonds
Never bow to no one
Cry for justice when you long for it
Want it


All for the cause is worth the price
Another human sacrifice
Another spill of blood on the bricks
Beyond their minds as cold as ice
Behind their little white washed lies
Love don't exist



Once a child of illusions
Once a king but you've lost your crown
When the walls came tumbling down
Now you walk in the shadows
Down the boulevard of broken dreams
Loosing track floating with the stream

I know the feeling
Like a stranger in a strange land

Cause you can't see there's love
Can't feel it enough
Your heart is your prison
When there's no light to be seen
When you die with your dreams
And loose your religion

You've been looking for an answer
You've been searching for the key to life
You've been crying in the dead of night
See you drown in the darkness
In the world so freezing cold
It's like a nail hammered through your soul

Sometimes it seems
That you've been born under a bad sign


Down in the dust
Where there's no one to trust
When there's nothing to hold on to
Stare yourself blind
In the mirrors of time
For the great divine

You can't choose can't break the chains
There's nothing to loose
And nothing to gain
It's your life your fate has been sealed
Your alone with your lack of believe



On through history we've come all the way
Through wars and destruction
Represent the image of decay
Betrayal and corruption

I don't wanna be a part of this no more
Fly me out
Fly with me

I don't believe in kings or presidents
In legends and heroes
Humans caused the death of innocence
We fall back to zero

I stare into the blind world and sigh

Fly me out
To find a new tomorrow
Fly with me
Get on your wings and follow
Shout at the sky and pray to the gods
To keep the flame alive

Sweet mother earth you look hysterical
Condition critical
We need the magic of a miracle
It is a hostile age we're living in
Ungodly sin

I can fell the pain that lies behind your eyes


Kneel down all you heathens
Disbelievers and await his return
Pray for his forgiveness
For we live and never learn



I wanna taste it
Feel it in my bones
Gonna reach for the sky
I got wings I can fly on my own
I'll go the distance
You'll never see me crawl
Cause I'm over the hill
And I'm in for the thrill of it all

And you know
Easy come and easy go
I can feel the fire glow
In my body and soul

Live until it hurts
Wanna feel it
Fight for all it's worth
Take on the world because it's mine all mine
I ain't gonna sit and waste my time
Live until it hurts
Spread my wings and
Fly like a bird
It's better to burn out than to fade away
Stand up until my dying day

I'm gonna live it up
Take it as it comes
Have a piece of the pie
Feel like a wild on the run
I'm gonna walk on
Never gonna rest
I'll go for the lot and you know
I'll stand up to the test

Wanna win
Gonna put the wheels in spin
And enjoy the state I'm in
Fell the magic, raise some hell


I'm running with the devil
I'll be kicking up some dust
Push it to the limit
Cause my motive is my lust
I'm lit up like a rocket
Ready for take off tonight

Nothing's gonna stand in my way
I'll come on strong and live for today
Cause nobody knows what tomorrow will show
Got a hold on life and I can't let go



You dragged me through your system
Your blasphemic religion
Denounced me as a public enemy
Disgraced me for the jury
Lit an outrageous fury
Created all the clouds that covers me

Now you made me
Turned me into what I am
You profaned me
As a child of the damned

You got me spooked
Don't give what you can't take back
Really spooked
Don't give what you can't back

You brought me to the slaughter
You drank the holy water
Washed your hands and sanctified yourself
Tortured and crucified me
You nailed me to the cross
You burned my eyes and caused me living hell

You deceived me
Now you beg me to forgive
You mischieved me
Disbelieved my right to live


Vicious pictures stuck inside my head
Right until you lie dead
Right before me
Forgive and be forgiven Jesus said
But how do I forget
All that easy

You hurt my mind you stained my soul
For deeds I haven't done
You killed my pride and blocked my goals
Now see what I've become

I'm comin' out to get ya
My personal vendetta
Is gonna free me from your stranglehold
I'm back in violent rage
To revenge my crippled soul
Unchain my anger let my hate unfold
Right behind you
For the rest of your life



People think I'm crazy
In a schizophrenic state of mind
Mother Mary save me
From my darkest hour to come alive
In decline
Beyond this tortured mind
I feel intoxicated

Images of evil
Scenes of suffering inside my head
I'm falling into pieces
I'll close my eyes before I bleed to death
In my dreams
It all becomes surreal
Inside my world of fiction

Twisted that's what I am
Ride the road to ruin
I'm loosing stand
Don't know what I'm doing
It's slipping through my hands

Oh Lord won't you help me
Help me now before it gets too late
I'm burning down the candle
Can't you hold on back the hands of fate
Through my wretched visions
Mental exhibition
Blind confusion


Screaming out to no ones ears
I suffocate inside my fear
I'm out of control
Cause when the lights are getting dim
That's when my soul begs me to sin
Lord take me home



No cure for the broken hearted
No hope for the lonely one
Now baby ever since we parted
I played a game that can't be won
But I still believe in love
Cause I know it do exist
Have you ever tried to need someone
Have you ever tried to feel a love like this

I know I had my misdemeanours
Here I am to count the cost
You say there's a world between us
That I'm one that you just can't trust
Let me make it up to you
Just gimme one more try
Cause I'm drowning in this loneliness
And my spirit slowly dies

If it can't be love
If you won't let me into heaven again
I want you to stay by my side
What does it take to be forgiven my friend
Where did I go wrong
I gave to little and expected too much
I wanna die in your arms
I can't get by without the feel of your touch

One million little love affairs babe
Still the thorn stuck in your side
I promise you I really swear girl
That part of me is a part of my life
Can I ever break the walls
The fortress around your heart
Cause there's no meaning to it all
When love is torn apart


And every poisoned word that has been said
The reason to regret
Love is stronger, love is stronger than death

Let's talk it over let the good times begin
Let's just get closer baby
Skin on skin till the end



Your fading picture
Filling up my senses
You pulled the trigger
Shot through my defences
You left me bleeding lying on a bed of nails

There's something we should talk about
Can't let it slip away
Emotionally I'm lost without
Your sweet embrace

I want you wont settle for second best
Girl its true there's never been no one else
And never will

How could anything right go so wrong
how could anything good turn so bad
girl you're everything I really want
all I have and all I ever had

I need your loving
keep it coming to me
just like the river
that runs into the blue sea
I'm gonna please I'm begging on my hands and knees

Cause something deep within has died
my heart is in a mess
the loneliness is hard to hide
without your caress

You're all I need to fill in the pages
in my book of dreams it's never too late for love
never too late for love


And into the misty eyes of memory
do you remember how it used to be
do you recall all the good times baby

The days are dark the nights are long
if you're not here with me
love leads the way the road goes on
the best is yet to come



Look at yourself
Life in extreme
You're a symbol of wealth and luxury
Fashionable clothes
Champagne on ice
Well it's your definition of paradise

You'd sell your soul for glamour
And trade your heart for gold
You've got eccentric manners
You're in control
On top of the hill
What you don't know
Is that you're mentally ill

Cause your mind is where the money is
And it never changes
You go blind when you feel the bliss
Of the ghost that haunts your mind
Your blind

Valuable friends prestigious might
They'll be gone with the wind
When moneys tight
In the eyes of the man on the street
It all seems so absurd
Your selfish greed

Material gods mislead us
The rich will tax the poor
We bite the hands that feed us
And ask for more
It's tearing you up
You want it all
You can't get enough

Can you feel it
When it tears your soul
Into pieces

One day the score will be equal again
And the rich will descend from his throne
You can't buy your way into Heaven my friend
You see fate has its price on its own

You've been blinded
You just can't hide it
You can't hide it



If never I met you
I'd never have seen you cry
If not for a first hello
We'd never have to say goodbye

If never I held you
My feelings would never show
It's time I start walking
But there's so much you'll never know

I keep telling you hard luck woman
You ain't a hard luck woman

Rags the sailors only daughter
A child of the water
Too proud to be a queen
Rags I really love you I can't forget about you
You'll be a hard luck woman
Baby till you find your man

Before I go let me kiss you
And wipe the tears from your eyes
I don't wanna hurt you girl
You know I could never lie


Bye bye
So long
Don't cry
I'll be packing' my bags
Leaving you
I gotta keep on moving...


My friendly host
I am the ghost that breathe inside of you
I pull the strings make you do things
You're not supposed to do

I am disgust in desguise

Unleash the fire
Set my spirit free
Feel my desire
My atrocity
Feel me
Within you there's some of me
I'm the one that should not be

In ancient times I lost my wings
And from the sky I fell
Condemned my blackened soul
To dwell among the dust of Hell

I am the master of lies

Unleash the fire
Set my spirit free
Feel my desire
My atrocity
Flames rising higher
Tell me what you see
Feel me
Within you there's some of me
I'm the one that should not be

The curse of my name
Is the course to your pain
Can you feel it
I'm in command
I'm the blood on your hands
I've deceived you
