Just Another Man
Say what you will but it won't mean a thing
When there's no tree to see and no bird to sing
All life will end no chance to survive
The dust has come down and the whole world has died

He's got the world in his hand
To destroy at his command
But he's just another man

Who will be first and who will be last
It's the same kind of story no matter the cast
One man with a key can destroy you and me
Or will this old earth support no life again

He's got the world in his hand
To destroy at his command
But he's just another man

He's Just another man
He's Just another man
He's Just another man
 
 
Madman
A grind of steel a flash of light
Someone won't be home tonight
Broken lamp, shadows fall
In the distance stray cats call

No one sees, no one knows
Choose a path where no one goes
Fantasy in his mind
Prowling in the streets at night

Madman on the loose tonight
Madman on the loose
Madman on the streets tonight
Madman he's a killer

Empty Streets full of fears
Scream out loud no one to hear
To walk alone is nothing less
Than walking side by side with death

Madman on the loose tonight
Madman on the loose
Madman on the streets tonight
Madman he's a killer

Out in the night, his body's weak
On the run no time to sleep
In his mind, in his eyes
Clearing all the streets of vice

A grind of steel a flash of light
Someone won't be home tonight
Broken lamp, shadows fall
In the distance stray cats call

Madman on the loose tonight
Madman on the loose
Madman on the streets tonight
Madman he's a killer
 
 
Too Hot to Handle
I meet her late one Saturday night
I'd been watching her
And Waiting my chance
I looked in her eyes
Full of mystery alright
I could tell that this was
One Nights romance

She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love
She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love

She had big green eyes
And her smile was just right
To stop you right there in your tracks
As cold as ice I saw it in those eyes
There's gonna be no turning back

She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love
She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love

She really looked good that night
Her blue jeans clung so tight
I couldn't contain my love
She was too hot to handle
But too cool to love

Couldn't believe what she wanted of me
But I gave her all the love I could give
Girl of your dreams that how it seems
Until you find out
How she's willing to live

She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love
She looked too hot to handle
But too fool to love

Too hot to handle
Too cool to love

I meet her late one Saturday night
I'd been watching her
And Waiting my chance
I looked in her eyes
Full of mystery alright
I could tell that this was
One Nights romance

She looked too hot to handle
Not too fool to love
She looked too hot to handle
Not too fool to love

Too cool to love
Too cool to love
Too cool to love
Too cool to love
 
 
Hard Road
I've been waiting Ooh I've been waiting
I've been waiting for such a long time
Too late to find a new life chasing dreams
So hard to find

'Cos it's a hard road someone is waiting
Hard road waiting for me
Hard road I'll keep on tryin'
Hard road calling me
Hard road

I've been tryin' tryin' for a long time
Travelling the road in a rock and roll show
Something to share is all I ask for
If you leave then there's no place to go

'Cos it's a hard road someone is waiting
Hard road waiting for me
Hard road I'll keep on tryin'
Hard road calling me
Hard road

I I've been waiting
I I've been waiting for so long

'Cos it's a hard road someone is waiting
Hard road waiting for me
Hard road I'll keep on tryin'
Hard road calling me
Hard road

Hard road Hard road
Hard road Hard road
 
 
Tell Me Why
People think I'm crazy act like a fool
Try and understand me I break all the rules
Not because I'm lazy got plenty to do
All that is happening to me is out of my hands don't you see
Try and see just how I feel

Tell me why you're gettin' at me
You won't even try to tolerate me
Maybe I am crazy livin' a lie

Sometimes I feel so sorry what can I do
I can only give back what I'm given by you
You can't start to worry is all I can say
Your turn tomorrow my turn today
All that has happened to me is out of my hands don't you see
You will know just how I feel

Tell me why you're gettin' at me
You won't even try to tolerate me
Maybe I am crazy livin' a lie

Tell me why you're gettin' at me
You won't even try to tolerate me
Maybe I am crazy livin' a lie

So far as I remember I've been this way
Don't think about tomorrow, live for today
I might sound defeatist it's my state of mind
Anger frustration is driving me wild
All that has happened to me is out of my hands don't you see
You will know just how I feel

Tell me why you're gettin' at me
You won't even try to tolerate me
Maybe I am crazy livin' a lie
 
 
The Wake
(Instrumental)
 
 
Buried Alive
Told me that I should help you if I could
And help someone to live on after me
You know I need your twenty pounds
Suspicious about you Doctor Hood

Sold you my body I gave it all to you
'Cos I won't have no use where I go
There's a card in my wallet says just help yourself
'Cos I won't have no use where I go

Buried alive buried alive
Must be a way you can survive
Must be a way you can be certain
What's going on in your mind
Buried alive buried alive

Tell me that I'm fine drink another glass of wine
My life is in your hands now no alarm
If you take my body and Lucifer my soul
I won't live in this world on my own

Buried alive buried alive
Must be a way you can survive
Must be a way you can be certain
What's going on in your mind
Buried alive buried alive

Buried alive buried alive
Must be a way you can survive
Must be a way you can be certain
What's going on in your mind
Buried alive buried alive
 
 
Silver Wheels
I feel it down in my body and soul
There is something I can't control
Your very speed impresses me
I feel your presence possessing me

Ride on ride on
Everybody's gonna sing my song
Ride on ride on
Tell me it won't be for long
Ride on silver wheels

Riding the highway down the streets
I only move you respond to me
Maybe we look but we do not see
There is a voice that can set us free

Ride on ride on
Everybody's gonna sing my song
Ride on ride on
Tell me it won't be for long
Ride on silver wheels

Ride like a freebird down the highway
Listen listen to me

I got to tell you that I can see
The road that's out there ahead of me
And you know baby that I ain't scared
Maybe I still go ahead

Ride on ride on
Everybody's gonna sing my song
Ride on ride on
Tell me it won't be for long
Ride on silver wheels

Ride on ride on
Everybody's gonna sing my song
Ride on ride on
Tell me it won't be for long
Ride on silver wheels

You better ride on silver wheels
You better ride on silver wheels
 
 
Love'em And Run
Girls are out to get ya hear what I say
Best thing you can do is keep out of their way
They're only after one thing it's not the same as you
Hear the bells a ringing come gunning for you

You better love'em and run today
You gotta love'em and run today

First it's just a good try and keep it that way
Only waiting for a sign she'll name the day
Now you're in too deep it's harder to breathe
Before you know what's hit you she's tugging your sleeve

You better love'em and run today
You gotta love'em and run today

Time's up freedom days are over now
Time's up freedom days are over
Now you've got to mend your way

No more drinkin' with the boys back the next day
You're feelin' pretty grim you can't get away
Stay at home watch TV that's how it's gonna be
Realize your mistake you wanna be free

You better love'em and run today
You gotta love'em and run today

Time's up freedom days are over now
Time's up freedom days are over
Now you've got to mend your way

Ha ha ha ha Love'em and run
 
 
Avalon
Peace and tranquility you'll find
Verily we while away the hours
See through the mirrors of your mind
Secretly the drinking of the wine
We all live on the Isle of Avalon

Secrets of the thousand years
Lie under the ground beneath your feet
Echoes from the past of time
Listen to the name that sounds so sweet
Now you've come to Avalon
Leave your will with the Lords of Avalon

You will believe you will believe
We are as one with the rising of the sun

Peace and tranquility you'll find
Verily we while away the hours
See through the mirrors of your mind
Secretly the drinking of the wine
We all live on the Isle of Avalon

The Isle of Avalon
We all live on the Isle of Avalon
 
 
(It's) Hell, Livin' without You
You look at me and smile and give yourself away
The guilty look you've got there's nothing you need say

No word, no reason, no chance for mi to stay
What can I do, when I turn around to say

It's hell living without you
It's hell being alone

I see a feeble mind that only works one way
Your love for me was growing weaker day by day

No word, no reason, no chance for mi to stay
What can I do, when I turn around to say

It's hell living without you
It's hell being alone

You said you never wanted us to end this way
But you won't even talk it over
What can I do, I still want you, please say you'll stay
Don't tell me that you think it's over

No word, no reason, no chance for mi to stay
What can I do, when I turn around to say

It's hell living without you
It's hell being alone
