1. HELL ON THE SEVENTH

Livin' alone, hey you don't know
Sugar, send a wire to you
Tequila's on low an' I need your smile
On cigarette tobacco kinda binds my style
The first day I was doin' fine
Stealin' the show, a rock'n'roll man
Flashing the Harley, a mean machine
Drinkin' in the clubs and dancin'

Help me I gotta see you
There's no one else who can free me
For six days it's been heaven
But man it's bloody hell on the seventh

Well since you've been away,
I'm gone and done it on the scene
And all that I need, I got from Jacqueline
For six days I've been bad
Done so much I should not have

For six days, I was doin' fine
Stealin' the show, a rock'n'roll man
Flashing the Harley, a mean machine
Drinkin' in the clubs and dancin'

Help me I gotta see you
There's no one else who can free me
For six days it's been heaven
But man it's bloody hell on the seventh

Come in, I've a story to tell
Only fair to let you know, that
I'm felling like hell

Help me I gotta see you
There's no one else who can free me
For six days it's been heaven
But man it's bloody hell on the seventh
Help me I gotta see you
There's no one else who can free me
For six days it's been heaven
But man it's bloody hell on the seventh




2. UPTOWN MARTYRS

See all the columns, people who pay in
Their money to hear you play, seventy songs so far
The public relate to the prophet the critics upraise
Your status has grown and now wherever you go
What you are you can see in the faces of those
Whose political drug can be found in the words that you sing

Uptown martyrs, say it for me
Uptown martyrs, that's what I be
So far, we're going far, I can say
If you stay, stick with me I will show you the way

You're well aware, you're not alone, nor are you mean
Yet people draw comparisons with you and James Dean
It's revelation time, they've come for their king
You're giving your everything being yourself
And everyone's trying to see someone else
You're the one to watch, yeah, you're a name

Uptown martyrs, say it for me
Uptown martyrs, that's what I be
So far, we're going far, I can say
If you stay, stick with me I will show you the way
Uptown martyrs, say it for me
Uptown martyrs, that's what I be

There are nights on your own
In some lonely bars
When reflecting ideals of all your public
Say you are
And the time they're wasting on the wrong track
Someday you know they'll put a knife
Into your back

And the way the world is in need of a change
If people only tried to get it in their brains
It's all for all, an' all of us for one
And solidarity's the only social gun




3. HAVE A CARE FOR SHADOWS

Still feel bare when I wear silly city clothes
Last time in jail, there was a suicide pretty close
Eternal scrutiny oppression, bled defiance
Life could have slipped away but I held on to mine
Out of hell, life discovered a will
Kept it hidden, safe and secure
Free from malice, free from fear
A secret something, where people count for nothing

My heart bleeds, poor kamarade
I suffered too exactly like you
Be aware, who would dare, have a care for a shadow

Am I ever really free
Can I come to terms with this
They meddle in my past, my present is in chains
My future's compromised and cast to the wind
A spreading sickness, burning deep inside
The sweetness of life is passing me by
Hostile faces, still steal
My comprehension and punish my convictions

Yes, my heart bleeds, poor kamarade
I suffered too exactly like you
Be aware, who would dare, have a care for a shadow

Brother what they're doin' I see
Brother yeah it happened to me
Trivialities magnify
If looks could kill, you'd kill with your eyes

My heart bleeds, poor kamarade
I suffered too exactly like you
Be aware, who would dare, have a care for a shadow
Kamarade
I suffered too, I'm thinkin' of you
Be aware, who would dare, have a care for a shadow




4. FIREBALL

Somebody help
Somebody think
Listen around when you're having a drink
One old man he's pretty stoned and he's startin' a riot
And everyone's sold on his song of love
The eagle's going vicious and it's killing the dove
The more they see, the more that they want
You don't believe it, see if they don't
It's coming' closer closer closer so close, so come on
Come out of your corner
Get out of your seat
Out of the shadows, get up on your feet
Come out of your corner
Hey don't you recall
If it's comin' for one, it's comin' for all

When the roulette rolls, the numbers spin
There's nothin' you can do, accept if you can
Agression is the game, you really ready to play
You don't have second option the first is the last
The old man's a joker, that'll be that
So what do you do, rien ne va plus
Hangin' round ain't helping you
Get off you asses and get into the news

Come out of your corner
Get out of your seat
Out of the shadows, get up on your feet
Come out of your corner
Hey don't you recall
It's a party for one, and a party for all
Fireball, fireball, fireball

You wanna try in Europe, here's what you do
Just hang about and Europe could make it to you
Exceeding expectations coming down with the storm
When millions of souls are washed down with the rain
And heroes in the ashes are blown in the wind

Let ashes be ashes, and stone into stone
And honour still be honour and people alone
And let not the mighty dictate to the weak
If money can pay let it pay for the peace
If circumstances accuse and condemn
Would this still be true when it's said of a friend




5. POWER OF THE KNIFE

Power is the string
Reach for a star
Show your thing
Show what you are
Blowing strong, blowing wild
A hit and run, electric child
Born to fight, a tiger in the night
The power of the knife
Bullet proof limousines
The power of the knife
Hollywood, drug creams
The power of the knife
Big cars, little stars
A better way of life ?
The power of the knife

You wanna have a woman
Man you've got it comin'
Think of a girl you know
Polish your blade
An' you're ready to
Anywhere any place
Jump the gun, win the race
Dynamite, that's you're way of life




6. BLACK ANGEL

I saw her one day, and she was watchin' me
Trying out a pass, she was meant, to see
You ever see a put on put away, I put it away
Can't somebody send her back today, back today
I saw her look and I was turnin' into glass
The way I tell is the way it came to pass
Everywhere I go, she's gettin' closer
I'm feelin' so strange all over.
Black angel, you leave me
As black as the night
Black angel, it's you I need
Get back into my life

Talking to myself, am I going insane
Deeper into stress, no go, take it away
If she believes in me, all she's got to do
Is get to me somehow, conform, I'll do I say
Should be locking forward, she's got me looking back
Look in the mirror and I see her in the glass

Black angel
You leave me
As black as the night
Black angel
It's you I need
Get back into my life

Tossing an a turning an a gettin no sleep
Time you can't reverse
Rocking an a reelin' an a losing the beat
Yeah lost my nerves
Now I know what I'm living for
I need her today
The madness and the magic sweep me away
A makin' me believe in
A come on, a come on, a come on I need you today
Your face
See your face, see your face in the glass

An makin' me believe in
An makin' me believe in
When I look in the mirror, your face
See your face in the glass




7. AGAINST THE LAW

He was born to be alone
Knowing the dangers, he had known
Trouble followed him around
In New York, they put him down
A bar room fight and no chance
The solitary drinker the danger man
Backing off was not his style
But if you step out of time
You're on the firing line
Freedom runs against the law
If freedom's what you're running for
In minutes they can take you away
The jungle is the city today
He'll be running from now 'till his dying day
A loner to the end
Just can't go on forever, no way
Closer he'll get to the justice net
With the circle of fear closin' fast
Fought his way through ghetto schools
Breaking the teachers, breaking rules
Ran into trouble made no grades
Ran out of luck and out of friends
Came down on the establishment
Into the computer what's in a name ?
Cops each day when he came home
Yeah the day he was born
Was the start of the run

Nearing the dangerous mark
The wolf must run with the pack

Ten years later well on the way

No sympathy the powers that he will win it's revenge
In the end, in the end

Nearing the dangerous mark
The wolf must run with the pack




8. MAN'S TRAP

I have misunderstood
Double dealing done no good
Have mercy baby, I have paid
Get me out of there today
Came in on a shadow from the East
Nobody could name the beast
A feeling I've never known
I wonder if I'll make if home
Shakin' down to my feet
Burning in a sea of heat
Drowning in a deep delight
She's a bitch of a witch in the night

Yesterday my scene was looking bad
Cheap seduction all I'd had
Me playing hookey, gettin' laid
Get me out of there today, right away

Good at goin' down to play
Naked as a new born babe
Showin' me the right and wrong
Good to be bad for too long
Devil take me if he must
See the ashes turn to dust
Drowning in a deep delight
She's a bitch of witch in the night

The devil takes me if he must
I see ashes turn to dust
Her silent innocence was cool
She played for real I played the fool
Reputations come and go
This revelation let me know
It's much too much for goodness sake
Can I get out of here today

Came in on a shadow from the East
Nobody could name the beast
Feelings I've never known
I wonder if I'll make if home
Shakin' down to my feet
Burning in a sea of heat
Born in a good side of town
And double so good going down




9. "84"

If arrogance can be blind
I ain't surprised wen looking around
The golden calf, the political stand
Where givers take when giving a hand
The voters who relate, demonstrate
Put down then, by the media men
Computers catch a coded name, a loaded game
Man we've come a long long way, but tell
Me where we're goin'
No one seems to know it for sure, hey tell
Me where are we goin'

Imagine me a fantasy and show it on a video
Yeah modern days, have modern ways
But is this the way we should go

Eighty four - coming on
Eighty four - this is the one
Eighty four - been waiting for
Eighty four - that's for sure

Eighty four - coming on
Eighty four - this is the one
Eighty four - been waiting for
Eighty four - say no more

An' woman's lib's getting bold
Emancipate is the courtesans call
The chauvinists are they going to seed
A looking glass supply all their needs
The digital brain is comin' out of the rain
Super micro chips give no lip
Scandal again, a government man
The U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. goin' nowhere fast

Man we've come a long long way
But tell me where we're goin'
No one seems to know it for sure
Tell me where are we goin'

Imagine me a fantasy and show it on a video
Yeah modern days, have modern ways
But is this the way we should go

Eighty four - coming on
Eighty four - this is the one
Eighty four - been waiting for
I can't say no more, it's nineteen eighty four
