The Embarkation
(Instrumental)
 
 
Mission No. X
Reporting for the duty
There's fever in our blood
The target is still locked on
No. X has just begun

Raise your arms for rhythm
Join and swell the ranks
Wear the badge with honour
We don't fire blanks

Million tons of passion
Breathing down your backs
Turning on the systems
Power up your packs

Come and join our mission - Mission No. X
Come and join our mission - Mission No. X

The mission is to conquer
We give it in the raw
Never taking prisoners
Defenders of the law

Raise your hands in fire
Standing back to back
Machinery of metal
Code X is the attack
 
 
24/7
I'm gonna blow your mind
And push you higher
I have my way to find
And nail the liar

You want it cleaner - I make it meaner
Anyway you want
You're gonna squeeze it - you're gonna please it
Always on the hunt

Come on and roll it - so fucking hold it - move your ass
Come on and scream it - we fucking mean it - living fast

You know we live it - 24/7
Twenty-four hours - seven days a week
You know we give it - 24/7
Twenty-four hours - seven days a week

I'm gonna kick you hard
You want disaster
We only take it rough
And tough and faster

You want it cleaner - I make it meaner
Right between the eyes
You're gonna squeeze it - you're gonna please it
Always pay the price
 
 
Mean Streets
For God's sake - you're just like a brother
For God's sake - not like any other
For God's sake - you're not just another man

For God's sake - there's no way of knowing
For God's sake - there's no way of showing
For God's sake - it's not just another crime

Down in the streets - it's just dirty and mean
Down in the streets - we're just living in fear
Down in the streets - we're gonna burn and fry

'Cause we're living in mean streets
Mean streets
We're living in mean streets
Mean streets

For God's sake - we can't keep a going
For God's sake - we reap what we are sowing
For God's sake - it's not just another time

For God's sake - another dead brother
For God's sake - they're all motherfuckers
For God's sake - there's no way to heal the blind

Down in the streets - dirty and mean
Down in the streets - living in fear
Down in the streets - we're gonna burn and fry
Down in the streets - we're gonna take you high
 
 
Primecrime on Primetime
The updates of the anchorman
And Reuters breaking news
Information fills the waves
With different points of view

The breakfast table battleground
Surplus overload
No matter what is on the screen
We hammer on and on

See the primecrime on primetime
That is the lifestyle on T.V.
See the primecrime on primetime
Another deadline - headline - on the screen

A hijack and a bomber's car
A killer going free
A multimillion bank account
Simply disappeared

A tanker lost and ran aground
A train came off the track
An innocent just standing by
A victim of attack
Oh - no - yes - more

The flooding of our heritage
Hurricanes at sea
Mighty mountains detonate
For all the world to see

Ignoring all catastrophes
Until it's at your door
Microphone and cameraman
You're the news at four
 
 
Eye of the Eagle
Mother nature comforts us
Embraces to her breast
Fields of gold and icy plains
We feel her great caress

Cocooned by earthly majesty
A cosmic jewel in time
Surrounded by a giving sun
It's good to be alive

Pasture lands and silver streams
Finger through the land
Magnify the hopes and dreams
Moving living sand

Canyons wind and trembled winds
Mountains touch the sky
It's nature's breath we all depend
It's good to be alive

Oh - the eye of the eagle
Oh - finds it all
Oh - the eye of the eagle
Oh - sees it all

Sounds of silence fill the air
A diamond in your palm
The elements in harmony
Innocent and calm

So stand alone and touch the stars
Heaven will be kind
Feel the love of brotherhood
So good to be alive

Towering woods of dignity
Oceans giving birth
Arose a host of energy
A hail to mother earth

Never blind the eagles' eyes
Keep wind beneath their wings
Living free and soaring high
Good to be alive
 
 
Shell Schock Fever
We hit your mind
We hit your soul
One of a kind
Always more and more

Thunder above
Lightening below
We're overhead
Nowhere else to go

Please, take my hand
It's so hard to stand
Never surrender - no time
Day after day
The game is to stay
Open your heart and you'll feel...

Shell shock fever
Shell shock fever

And we give you a high
Shell shock fever
Shell shock fever
And we light up the sky

We won't give up
Don't take the crap
Over and out
Take it high and low

We deal the dice
Join in the game
Make you alive
Turning on and on
 
 
Stone Hard
I've been around and done some things
But I am proud of what I've been
Some call me many different names
You'll burn in hell when you touch my pain

And when the lights begin to blind
I raise my fist for my own kind
If you could see what I have seen
I'm just a waking - breaking - taking - living machine

I'll come to you - in the night
So hear my scream - I'll take my rights

We're godforsaken - we are stone hard
Wrecking the rules for our family
We're on a mission for the stone hard
We are free and we'll always be
I've been allowed to do my thing
And all the things should not have been
So many see me different ways
And passion kills the end of my days

And when the insides come alive
I see reflections of my life
If you could see what I have seen
I'm just an earthquake terror making rocking machine
 
 
Breaking Down the Borders
We're revving up - we're coming through
We're breaking out - just for you
Ripping up - and all that crap
We're gonna make - the better map

So here we are
We're here for good
So listen up
Take our word forever

We're on the move - we're on the ball
We're gonna feed - your hungry soul
No matter who - no matter where
Be it here - or be it there

Breaking down the borders
Breaking all the chains
No more law and order
Breaking down the pain

We're gonna fight - and gonna win
No matter what - we won't give in
It was them - who made the rules
They're the ones - who are the fools
 
 
Cry Soldier Cry
Cold wind in the morning
A telegram arrives
Arriving with no warning
Another mother cries

Husbands, sons and brothers
Hailed the call to war
Blinded by the others
The promise - one for all

What's it all in aid of
Obeying the command
Cold and tired and hungry
Dying for some land

Why don't you cry, soldier, cry
Another letter - you should know better
Cry, soldier, cry
There will be sorrow - until tomorrow
So cry, soldier, cry

The fear and all the sadness
Of what it has become
In this world of madness
Another soldier gone

Salute the highest honour
The folding of the flag
Finally the end is
Another bodybag

And all the time your comrades
Their backs against the wall
A band of brothers fighting
One by one they fall
 
 
Way of Life
I've been away from home
Was outta sight
No other change has come
Who let the boredom in

We got our rockin' rights
We'll overcome
The mirror never lies
We'll show'em how it's done

We always dress in black
To be unkind
We always dress in black
With you in mind

It's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - and we're not wrong
'Cause it's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - we are the strong

We never will deceive
Take no double-talk
And all the fat cats bull
Don't like the way we walk

They spit behind our backs
Unwelcomed class
But it's way down deep
They wanna be like us

We always dress in black
To be unkind
We always dress in black
With you in mind

It's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - and we're not wrong
'Cause it's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - we are the strong

Time is ticking by
For you life is such a lie
You clipped your wings to fly
You could have had it all - BUT!

Work nine to five
Finish fifty-five
Only born to die
You ever been alive?

We always dress in black
To be unkind
We always dress in black
With you in mind

It's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - and we're not wrong
'Cause it's the way of life we live - you know where we are coming from
It's the way of life we live in - we are the strong
 
 
Mad for Crazy
I'm mad - mad for crazy - I'm made to rock
Still mad for crazy - rolling to the top
Mad for crazy - I'm made to rock
Still mad for crazy - rolling to the top

I had some bad times
But I had good
I had some sad times
But we all should

I need the action
I need the ride
That's satisfaction
On overdrive

Just take look in my eyes
Take it - you won't be surprised
And all the nonsense inside
Nothing will stop 'cause I'm still

Mad for crazy - I'm made to rock
Still mad for crazy - rolling to the top
Mad for crazy - I'm made to rock
Still mad for crazy - rolling to the top

I feel the power
So look inside
I need the madness
So step aside

I am a racer
Adrenaline
Cut like a razor
So sharp and mean
 
 
24/7
I'm gonna blow your mind
And push you higher
I have my way to find
And nail the liar

You want it cleaner - I make it meaner
Anyway you want
You're gonna squeeze it - you're gonna please it
Always on the hunt

Come on and roll it - so fucking hold it - move your ass
Come on and scream it - we fucking mean it - living fast

You know we live it - 24/7
Twenty-four hours - seven days a week
You know we give it - 24/7
Twenty-four hours - seven days a week

I'm gonna kick you hard
You want disaster
We only take it rough
And tough and faster

You want it cleaner - I make it meaner
Right between the eyes
You're gonna squeeze it - you're gonna please it
Always pay the price
 
 
Mean Streets
(single version)
 
 
Number for a Number
Detrimental assets
Money down the drain
Cash in all their pockets
(Let's) Ride the gravy train

Playing at casinos
Yachts and caviar
Mistresses and champagne
Apartments and fast cars

Dehumanise resources
Fix the budget plan
A grey suit revolution
Hide the paper trail

You take a number for a number
Take a penny for a dime
A number for a number
Another dirty crime

Capital expenditure
Global energy
Upsize all the markets
Cost is misery

Siphon off the excess
Secretive accounts
Documents and contracts
Third world body count
 
 
Scream Killer
There are secrets better left alone
Like Pandora's box
Throw away the master key
High-tech fantasies

And the mystery of our history
Stories been untold
Some words have been classified
Hide the danger code

The scream to stop they silence
They're working on to win
Blinded by their science
They carry on the sin

Scream killers - right and always wrong
Scream killers
They are the scream killers - always go too far
Scream killers
(Never go too far)

Universal energy
The world is not enough
Science of insanity
'N' one day time is up

And they all dismiss the reason why
Playing with our fate
Cast away the destiny
Stop - or it's too late

Corruptible intruders
Seed the dragon's lair
Exposing generations
Fall out's in the air

Scientific meddling
Technology unleashed
Microbotic phasing
The helix of the beast

Even if there is a master code
Deep inside within
Follow nature's symphony
The only way to win

And the time has come to turn the game
Make your final choice
Listen to your heart and soul
Mind the inner voice
 
 
Hardcore Lover
You want a real story - believe me
Been written so many times though you know them
But did you have to read it - always
Did you ever start to think and reason why

You know you'd long to do it - admit your dreams
So why don't you abuse it - I'm gonna set you free

I am a hardcore lover - I got my pride
I am a hardcore lover - throwing you aside
I am a hardcore lover - without a name
I am a hardcore lover - I'll bring you love and pain

Is it hard to sin for sinners
You haven't read the pages of my heart
Look inside and see what I deliver
Is the darkness pf your soul reflecting back

You know you'd long to do it - admit your dreams
So why don't you abuse it - I'm gonna set you free

I am a hardcore lover - I got my pride
I am a hardcore lover - throwing you aside
I am a hardcore lover - without a name
I am a hardcore lover - I'll bring you love and pain

I am a hardcore lover
I am a hardcore lover
I am a hardcore lover - without a name
I am a hardcore lover - I'll bring you love and pain

I am a hardcore lover - your high'n'dry
I am a hardcore lover - gonna screw your mind
I am a hardcore lover - my name's your game
I am a hardcore lover - I'll bring you love and pain
