Animal House
Morning is breaking, with death on the street
Driving downtown in a red corvette
The demons and satans are creeping around
L.A. nights are madhouse nights

The murders - are heroes
They're speeding all over the town
And justice - is drunken
I'm tumbling upside down

I'm a madman
Living in an animalhouse
I'm a madman
Living in an animalhouse
Living in an animalhouse

Rockers in concert are serving the bible
Praying in public is getting a habit
For selling out everything seems to be right, oh yeah
The sunset is crowded with tramps passing out

They're sleeping - in trashcans
There's witchcraft in everyone eyes
Satans and demons
All dressed up in suits and ties

I'm a madman
Living in an animalhouse
I'm a madman
Living in an animalhouse
Madman - going crazy - living in an animalhouse

I'm a madman...
 
 
Go Back to Hell
Mystic rainbows - in the night
Flashing colours - shining bright
Can't you see me - in the dark
Feel a heatwave - of a spark

If you're fighting the world just beware of the knives in your back
When you need to defend then you know that it's best to attack

See the light - feel the pain - and you're going insane

Go back to hell - go back to hell
To the sight of mystic light you've seen before
Go back to hell - go back to hell
Where the dead are always knocking at your door

Feel so lonely - far away
Eat your heart out - time to pray
Moving faster - to the flames
And I'm playing - all the games

If you're fighting the world just beware of the knives in your back
When you need to defend then you know that it's best to attack

See the light - feel the pain - and you're going insane

Go back to hell - go back to hell
To the sight of mystic light you've seen before
Go back to hell - go back to hell
Where the dead are always knocking at your door

Go back to hell - go back to hell
To the sight of mystic light you've seen before
Go back to hell - go back to hell
Where the dead are always knocking at your door...
 
 
They Want War
They are young and they're kids
And believe what they see
To do what they've been told
And so they walk away with open eyes

Some are eight or nine or ten
And they die like fly, and no one knows
Who they are, they're smaller than the gun they load

See their eyes open wide
They died before they ever cried

They die in the streets and they die in the fields
When they do want they've been told
But now they're lying dead
Their eyes are closed

Some are eight or nine or ten
And they die like fly, and no one knows
Who they are, they're smaller than the gun they load

See their eyes open wide, they died before they ever cried
Who taught them how, how to pray
Who told them they're in paradise when they're gonna die

They are blind and they can't fight
They want war
They are blind and they can't fight
They want war
They are blind and they can't fight
They want war
They are blind and they can't fight
They want war

They are blind and they can't fight
They want war
They are blind and they can't fight
They want war...

You're gonna pay the price, you little devil in disguise

For talking life with no regard, you'll go to hell
And there you'll burn

Children in the battlefield, please don't go

Little birds with fluttering hearts, please don't go
 
 
Black Widow
I just love my nightmares
I can't wait to sleep
Enjoying all my dreams
Got no regrets

I can be a flash of lightning
Striking down no rocks
Burning down the law
Getting things I never got

Turning the world
Nothing unheard
One night can be more than a day

Just like a black widow
Like a black widow

I can't stand the dreamers
Scared of things that fly
They just have sweet fantasies
And fade and die

Nightmares - are so good, so good
And they always end just when they should

Nightmares are cool, nightmares are cruel
I love the fun and the thrill

Just like a black widow
Like a black widow
Black widow
Just like a black widow

Here comes the morning
And who can deny
Leaving a dream is so hard
I love my nightmares
I await their return
And this time, I'm dressed to kill, dressed to kill

Just like a black widow...
 
 
In the Darkness
Why am I here now
Why have I done
Running on empty - I got nowhere to run

Can't get an answer
Can't get it right
Just try to make it
'Till the end of the night

Is there a way to avoid doing wrong
Lead me away from the darkness
Light up my day show me where I belong
Please don't leave me all alone in the darkness

Far in the distance
There is night, there is day
Sounds are waving nets of dismay

Sometimes I'm stuck in a shocking delay
Like in a slow motion movie
I'm reaching out for something to hold
Life slips away in the cold - in the cold

My heart is so cold - my heart is cold

Why was I turned down
What's going on
I wish there was something that could have been done

How can I get there
Where is the light
How can I make it
'Till the end of the night

How can I turn darkness to light
Leaving my fear in the darkness
Is there a way haw can I overcome
My restless night's and my fear - and my fear

In the darkness - in the darkness - in the darkness
 
 
Lay Down the Law
You turn my head
You turn my life, am I up or down
Why don't you see, you're bugging me
I have already lost my way

Do I have to pay for everybody's shit
Is it the past, or the start
Why can't you make it easy
Why don't you leave me alone

Keep me alive - keep me alive
Why don't ya keep me alive, me alive

Lay down the law - fight for more
Lay down the law - double the trouble and kick some ass
Lay down the law - lay it down
Lay down the law - lay it down, haha

I'm giving up, waiting for more
I need to know what to do
And you can see, see it's me
The one who's breaking down

How many fights, how many lives
How many lives do I have to live
It's not alright, I'm tired
To pay those rotten dues

Keep me alive - keep me alive
Why don't ya keep me alive, me alive

Lay down the law - fight for more
Lay down the law - double the trouble and kick some ass
Lay down the law - lay it down
Lay down the law - ooh yeah, yeah, yeah

How many fights
How many lives, do I have to live
It's not alright, I'm tired
To pay those rotten dues

Lay down the law - fight for more
Lay down the law - double the trouble and kick some ass
Lay down the law - lay it, lay it, lay it down
Lay down the law - oh, oh, yeah, yeah
Lay down the law - you gotta fight, fight for more
Lay down the law
 
 
We Want It Loud
Tonight, is a show
And I gotta be there
Banging my head to a metal attack
We got nothing to fear

Dancing and screaming begging my heroes for more
Burning the streets cause we gotta be first thru the door

We want it loud
There's no other reason we came for
We want it loud
The louder the better we need more

They keep us locked, locked in
For hours and hours we wait in line
You get pushed to the limit
We can't even breath no more

Like a volcano we're boiling and ready to blow
Fight at the way got to see this damn Rock and Roll show

We want it loud
There's no other reason we came for
We want it loud
The louder the better we need more
We want it loud - we want it loud - we want it loud
Yeah, it's gotta be loud

Yeah, we want it loud
There's no other reason we came for
We want it loud
The louder the better we need more

We want it loud - we want it loud - we want it loud
We want it loud - we want it loud - we get it loud
Yeah, it's gotta be loud
 
 
Hot Tonight
We don't give a damn what they do for a living
Everywhere we go we party just the same

Getting all my fun
With crazy little girls like you
Playing all you're games acting like a fool

Screaming - feel the fire
Screaming - feel the fire - fell it now now
'Cause we are hot tonight
'Cause we are hot tonight

Must be time to go I'm feeling hot and sweaty
Find a lace to go make it Hard'n'Heavy

Wasting all this time
Would be a silly thing to do
Please don't be a tease now it's me and you

Screaming - feel the fire
Screaming - feel the fire - fell it now now

'Cause we are hot tonight
'Cause we are hot tonight

Screaming - feel the fire
Screaming - feel the fire - fell it now now

'Cause we are hot tonight...
 
 
Warrior
Wasn't there a time
When no one lived in pain
Zero down to zero
But a warrior

The innocence of birth
The power of the earth
Out of all that's good
Comes a warrior

Time - is it you who changes minds
Sueing us - for something we've not done
Stealing the heroes - all the guiding lights, to find the way

Justice has been gone
To pieces for so long
Some killers call themselves
A warrior

Warriors with no pride
Committing suicide
The picture of a man
That's your warrior

'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom
'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom

Think about the time
Where manhood promised pride
And history was made
Just by warriors

We have to face the world
And hope that someone's heard
Who could replace a man
Like the warrior

'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom
'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom

Time - is it you who changes minds
Sueing us - for something we've not done
Stealing the heroes - all the guiding lights, to find the way

'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom
'Cause he's a warrior
Yes, he's a warrior
He fights for peace and freedom
'Cause he's a warrior...
 
 
Coming Home
I've not been home
For so many years
And I did not regret being gone

Please tell me when did we talk
And when did we show
That we do care for something called love

Oh no, don't you despair now
I'm as grown up us can be
Can't you forget everything
And this time listen to me

I'm coming home - home
I'm coming home - why don't you help me
I'm coming home - home
I'm coming home - why don't you love me

It's time to remember
What we've got together
I guess it is more than we know
And we should be open
And turn back the wheels
As far as we can go

I know I am your son
And everything else don't seem real
I want you back like never before
I can't take another goodbye

I'm coming home - home
I'm coming home - please, can't you be there
I'm coming home - home
I'm coming home - please, don't you leave me

What's done's done - I'm your son
I've been hurt by your lies
I want peace after all
That's why I want you to let me come home

I'm coming home - home
I'm coming home - let's fight together
Home - home
I'm coming home - I've so much to tell you

Home - I'm coming home
I'm coming home - time heals the scars of the past
I'm coming home
I'm coming home - to be by your side

I'm coming home - I'm coming home
I'm coming home - I've so much to tell you
I'm coming home - I'm coming home...
 
 
Run for Cover
See the man in white
He's old he wouldn't dare to fight, to fight another
Rockin' like a beast upon on a never ending dream
We love each other

Asking for a sign - the action's coming from behind
Let's run for cover
Feel the music's beat, we fight rock
And in the heat we stand together

We're holding back for you when you fight
And we stand one for another
We're holding back for you when you run for cover

And see those open eyes
When you are standing here tonight
That's why - We're holding back for you when you run for cover
Restless in the night, we all stand up for this delight
We fight together

We're holding back for you when you fight
And we stand one for another
We're holding back for you when you run for cover
We're holding back for you when you fight
And we stand one for another
We're holding back for you when you run for cover

We're holding back for you...
