Stand Up And Fight
Looking for the right time
To leave the place
That I have lived and loved for so long
Brother robs brother
To get to the top ain't
That important in my street
You got to stick together
Don't let them walk all over you

Stand up and fight
Stand up and fight
Stand up and fight

Time unfolds the fever
The greed of man pursues his prey in anger
No mercy from the mighty, nowhere to go
Surrounded by his power

Cheats always prosper, stones break bones
The weak always suffer
They will inherit the throne
Death and destruction
Evil will reign the weak always suffer
They will inherit the pain
Look over your shoulder when the lights go out
Take it easy man, they're trying you out
 
 
Charlie Snow
Don't you know it, babe,
I'm in love with your kind
Charlie Snow is here, and we'll have a good time
Look at all the people feeling sorry for you
Don't you know it, baby, it's the devil in you

Hitch a lift to Kansas on a big yellow dodge
You're our kinda people down red wine lodge
Pack your bags lady, are you ready to go?
Don't you worry, honey, I got Charlie Snow.

Heavy leathered lady has just hit town
East and west will hear the noise for miles around
Loud noises baby form the band on the beach
With the help of Charlie Snow even the stars we'll reach

Lady leave those people in side show
The pack in my pocket is our old friend Charlie Snow
Oh so you think you'll have a good time
Tomorrow's too late to change your mind

Charlie Snow is a-comin' and the black is a-blowin'
And I feel fine Chasin' the dragon is my kind of magic
And I'm out of my mind
Oh so you think you'll have a good time
Tomorrow's too late to change your mind
 
 
Can't Say No to You
People searching for a good time
Seen through a stranger's eyes
You never seem the same child
You had me going crazy
And kept on forgiving, one day you won't come
Back then maybe I'll start livin'
Why don't you leave me alone
I keep on wishing you wouldn't come too
I can't say no to you

Lady bet you can't remember
How many times you lied
And I just stood believing
You had me going crazy
And kept on forgiving
One day you won't come back
Maybe I'll start livin'
I know which way to burn
I keep on thinking I ain't gonna learn to
Can't say no to you
Can't say no to you
Can't say no to you

Woman you got me where you want
Time passes by but I can't find no reason
 
 
Revenge
My mother she got a lover
As sure as hell, he don't like me
Too young to earn
Two roads to choose
I got to make sure I dirty my shoes

Oh say you don't love
Oh say you don't care
I'm walkin' for a future
I ain't a lost mother there

I open up my eyes to wonder
Take heed my friend I am returning
My strength is hate
Revenge I'm seeking
I ain't runnin'
I'll choose my own way only time will tell
Fallin' at the crossroads it's like a living hell

I'm waiting and in my own time
I'm gonna get revenge on you
It's hurting I've been deserted
The finger points at you
 
 
Stocking Up the Fires of Hell
I see the clouds before me
Are falling from the sky
The sun is getting dimmer
In the atmosphere up high
My presence of mind is shifting
Like sand upon a dune

My sundial's lost it's moon
Everything is getting dark
I cannot see my hands
Shadows all around me
Make this a fearful land
I see a storm is brewing
As lightning fills the sky
Now I see before me
The devil tells no lies

Stoking up the fires of hell
Yes I'm burning
Stoking up the fires of hell
The chapters keep on turning

Rock of ages
Starts to crumble to the ground
Cities fall into the sea
Destruction all around

The world will now disintegrate
The Devil takes his toll
With his powers of evil
His journey carries on
With his new born children
The thunder will reign
With destruction all around
The Devil saves his face
 
 
Rock 'n' Roll Child
Angel babe you took me by surprise
Spread your wings and fly
Take me for a ride above the clouds
Across the universe
Travelling at the speed of light

Well she's a rock n' roll child
Had her ups and downs
Playing it hard breaking the rules
Getting her kicks from the drugs and the booze
Setting high, reaching out
And touching the sky

Well, she's layin' it down getting tough
Letting'em drink from the furry cup
The sun is blinding it gives her pain
This rock' n roll child is screwing her brain

Trips the light fantastic
Trying to blow her crazy mind
Steps across the universe
Has rainbows as her sign
The intervening warrior
Saves war between the worlds
The journey of the soldier
Begins but never ends
Look at me look at you I'm floating
Higher than you can

Take a trip follow me
See what I've seen, where I've been

Well, she's layin' it down getting tough
Letting'em drink from the furry cup
The sun is blinding it gives her pain
This rock' n roll child is screwing her brain
 
 
Questions
Where do we come from
Why are we here
The chosen books do not agree
The answers are not clear
Strange things seen at night
Stir the views of others
Someone trying to contact us
Why is it that no one bothers

The scriptures cast the shadows
Over heaven and hell
Astronomers pass the buck
The atomic storm will tell
The great winds will blow
Seas will swell
Man will rise into the sky
Will he be allowed to tell

Why don't somebody answer my questions
I want to live

The lure of distant places
Is there for us to fear
Excited by their mystery
Tell us not to clear
Travellers of both time and space
Acknowledge my twisted brain
Is there more to heaven and hell
Am I the one insane

There must be some life up there
Too many lies offered
Questions never answered
His good book is condemned
Not that I would disagree
The bible stands for me
Or was it really space men
Travelled in the year BC.
 
 
Wildfire
See his eyes are shining
Fire in the sky
See a stranger smiling
Laughing in his mind

Hear the sirens wailing
Through a smoky haze
Turning on some crazy guy
Staring all the blaze

Wildfire smoking grass

Standing in the shadows
Watch the flames grow higher
Frightened faces runnin' scared
And you're the reason why

Wildfire smoking grass

You get the feelin' that it could happen to you
When you're sleepin' in a hotel room
In the burning ashes you can hear them cry
Something you remember till the day you die

Wildfire smoking grass

You get the feelin' that it could happen to you
When you're sleepin' in a hotel room
In the burning ashes as you hear them cry
Something you remember till the day you die

Wildfire smoking grass

Another place another time situation
Some other crazy kinda way to get my inspiration
