Live - The Nightmare Continues tracks

Lyrics


1. NEVER AGAIN

A blinding light and firestorms agonised crying
Never never never again
Never never never again
Unanswered cries of help panic and desperation
Dazed and stricken survivors
Search for lost families
Choking dust crazy with thirst
Drinking from poisoned pools and stream




2. HEAR NOTHING SEE NOTHING SAY NOTHING

Lied to, threatened, cheated and deceived
Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing
Led up garden paths and into blind alleys
Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing

Lied to, threatened, cheated and deceived
Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing
Led up garden paths and into blind alleys
Hear nothing, see nothing, say nothing




3. THE NIGHTMARES CONTINUES

And still men and women drag out their lives in misery
The nightmare continues
Blinded, disfigured and mentally scared
The nightmare continues

And still men and women drag out their lives in misery
The nightmare continues
Blinded, disfigured and mentally scared
The nightmare continues




4. REALITIES OF WAR

War is a black hole to avoid
The realities of war are so disturbing
They declare it but they don''t hear
The cries of fear

War is a black hole to avoid

Mutilated corpses and charcoal flesh
Litter the battlefields
But their dead bodies
Are not to be found

War is a black hole to avoid




5. STATE VIOLENCE STATE CONTROL

War is a black hole to avoid
The realities of war are so disturbing
They declare it but they don''t hear
The cries of fear

War is a black hole to avoid

Mutilated corpses and charcoal flesh
Litter the battlefields
But their dead bodies
Are not to be found

War is a black hole to avoid




6. HELL ON EARTH

A glaring light, an unnatural tremor
Suffocating heat, suffocating heat
A hell on earth, a hell on earth

Men, women and children groaning in agony
From the intolerable pain of their burns
A hell on earth, a hell on earth

A glaring light, an unnatural tremor
Suffocating heat, suffocating heat
A hell on earth, a hell on earth

Men, women and children groaning in agony
From the intolerable pain of their burns
A hell on earth, a hell on earth




7. CRIES OF HELP

Napalm tumbles from the sky
Cries of help, cries of pain
Cries of help, cries of pain

Skin looking like bloody hardened meat
Cries of help, cries of pain
Cries of help, cries of pain

Napalm tumbles from the sky
Cries of help, cries of pain
Cries of help, cries of pain

Skin looking like bloody hardened meat
Cries of help, cries of pain
Cries of help, cries of pain




8. POSSIBILITY OF LIFE DESTRUCTION

Can you hear the sound of an enormous door slamming in the depths of hell?
The possibility of life's destruction
Can you hear the cries of pain, the mournful sound?
The possibility of life's destruction

Can you hear the sound of an enormous door slamming in the depths of hell?
The possibility of life's destruction
Can you hear the cries of pain, the mournful sound?
The possibility of life's destruction




9. THE FINAL BLOODBATH

The smell of death is near
Its presence ever near
The final bloodbath is coming
It's just around the corner

The smell of death is near
Its presence ever near
The final bloodbath is coming
It's just around the corner




10. PROTEST AND SURVIVE

The savage mutilation of the human race is set on course
Protest and survive, protest and survive
It's up to us to change that course
Protest and survive, protest and survive

Protest and survive, protest and survive

The savage mutilation of the human race is set on course
Protest and survive, protest and survive
It's up to us to change that course
Protest and survive, protest and survive

Protest and survive, protest and survive




11. DOOMSDAY

And now the end the end is near
It's time to say our last goodbyes

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Is it reality or just a nightmare
Nightmare nightmare

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
No escape no escape

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day

Is it reality or just a nightmare
Nightmare nightmare

Doomsday doomsday
It's dooms day dooms day




12. DRUNK WITH POWER

For how long do we tolerate
These fools drunk with power
Drunk with power and obsessed with death
Death and destruction, drunk with power

A giant game of chess they play
With you and I as the disposable pieces
Drunk with power and obsessed with death
Death and destruction, drunk with power

For how long do we tolerate
These fools drunk with power
Drunk with power and obsessed with death
Death and destruction, drunk with power

A giant game of chess they play
With you and I as the disposable pieces
Drunk with power and obsessed with death
Death and destruction, drunk with power, power, power, power, power, power




13. WHY

Besides her man she kneels
Holds him tight and begins to cry
Why, why, why, but why?

Her loved one's just another piece of
Meat on the battlefields
Why, why, why, but why?

Her cries break out into screams
As she now becomes hysterical with grief
Why, why, why, but why?

Her loved one's just another piece of
Meat on the battlefields
Why, why, why, but why?




14. THE BLOOD RUNS RED

Cut down by machine gun fire
The blood runs red
The blood runs red

Hot lead rips through flesh
The blood runs red
The blood runs red

Cut down by machine gun fire
The blood runs red
The blood runs red

Hot lead rips through flesh
The blood runs red
The blood runs red




15. TWO MONSTROUS NUCLEAR STOCKPILES

Should east and west be ever divided
Resigned to livin' livin' in fear




16. DECONTROL

They fill you up with their fucking lies
You're the victims of government schemes
They take liberties they've no right to take
And you believe they're oh so right
They only show concern when war is declared
Cos you're their power and glory
This whole affair's so fucking unfair
It's so fucking sick

Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol

We''re being shit on far too long
We''re being shit on far too long
We''re being shit on far too long
We''re being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
Decontrol, decontrol - We're being shit on far too long
