Of Rage And War
You got Libya you got the Russians
You got civilian planes crashing to the oceans
Airports full of terrorists
Nazi skins, anarchists
When are you gonna learn

Better listen to me you son of a bitch
Better disarm those missiles sleeping in the ditch
You have no goddamn right to do those things you do
The world would be a better place if we were rid of you
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war

Every country's got the bomb
The scientists are working on
Chemical weapons to melt the flesh
With no source of defense
Shoot me I'll shoot you
Like there's nothing better to do
Who's the loser in the end

Better listen to me you son of a bitch
Better disarm those missiles sleeping in the ditch
You have no goddamn right to do those things you do
The world would be a better place if we were rid of you
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war

War broods in foreign lands
Missiles launch upon command
Islam, Lebanon, what the hell is going on
Ambassadors who say they try
Negotiating suicide
Are they prepared to face the end
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
Of rage and war
 
 
Gutter Ballet
Another sleepless night
A concrete paradise
Sirens screaming in the heat
Neon cuts the eye
As the jester sighs
At the world beneath his feet

It's a gutter ballet
Just a menagerie
Still the orchestra plays
On a dark and lonely night
To a distant fading light

Balanced on their knives
Little parts of lives
Such a strange reality
Kill the unicorn
Just to have its horn
Soon he's just a fantasy

It's a gutter ballet
Just a menagerie
Still the orchestra plays
On a dark and lonely night
To a distant fading light

The jester takes his bows
Slips into the crowd
As the actors fade away
Another death to mourn
Another child is born
Another chapter in the play

It's a gutter ballet
Just a menagerie
Still the orchestra plays
On a dark and lonely night
To a distant fading light
 
 
Temptation Revelation
(Instrumental)
 
 
When the Crowds Are Gone
I don't know where the years have gone
Memories can only last so long
Like faded photographs, forgotten songs
And the things I never knew
When the skin is thin, the heart shows through
Please believe me what I tell you is true

Where's the lights, turn 'em on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The story's over when the crowds have gone

All my friends have been crucified
Made life a long suicide true
Guess we never figured out the rules
But I'm still alive, my fingers feel
Gonna play on till the final reel's through
And read the credits from a different view

Where's the lights, turn 'em on again
One more night to believe and then
Another note for my requiem
A memory to carry on
The story's over when the crowds have gone
When the crowds are gone

When the crowds are gone
And I'm all alone
Playing the saddest song
Now that the lights are gone
Turn them on again
One more time for me my friend
Turn 'em on again

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
Till time wasted me
Never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
'Cause the persons I am
Are the parts that I play
So I plot and I plan
Hope and I scheme
To the lure of a night
Filled with unfinished dreams
I'm holding on tight
To a world gone astray
As they charge me for years
I can no longer pay

Turn 'em on again (repeat)

I never wanted to know
Never wanted to see
I wasted my time
Till time wasted me
I Never wanted to go
Always wanted to stay
'Cause the persons I am
Are the parts that I play
The parts I play

And the light
Turn then off my friend
And the ghosts
Well just let them in
Cause in the dark
It's easier to see
 
 
Silk And Steel
(Instrumental)
 
 
She's in Love
She likes what she sees
Starts to drop to her knees
Gazing with an appetite
Licks her lips in sheer delight
She's one of a kind
Sight for sore eyes
It's all she needs to be happy
And I bet she never knew
It would taste so good

No she's in love
I know she's in love
Oh no no she's in love
I know she's in love

She just loves to please
Kiss of life her specialty
Oh how well she knows
Just how to make it grow
She's one of a kind
A sight for sore eyes
It's all she needs to be happy
And I bet she never knew it would taste so good!

No she's in love
I, yeah yeah she's in love
I know she's in love
Oh yeah she's in love
 
 
Hounds
Sun sets on the moor
The cries of the hounds live forevermore
Stalking the night
They roam the countryside till morning's light

Do you hear the hounds they call
Scan the dark eyes aglow
Through the bitter rain and cold
They hunt you down
Hunt you down

They run wild and free
Across the fields and valleys of their native land
Nature's beasts deranged
Beyond belief no one understands

Do you hear the hounds they call
Scan the dark eyes aglow
Through the bitter rain and cold
They hunt you down
Hunt you down

Can you see them in the night
They've got you in their sight

Can you hear the hounds they call
Scan the dark eyes aglow
Through the bitter rain and cold
They hunt you down
Hunt you down
 
 
The Unholy
Oh yeah
In distant ages long ago
Before the birth of Christ
Lived a race trapped in soul
Terror on the rise
United beyond the storm
They ruled the astral plane
No one could stop them
They wouldn't fall
In a while they would soon reign

A step beyond the grave
Visions so insane
They opened the gates of Hell

Calling, Calling
Unholy light is calling
Faster, faster
Prelude for disaster
Get straight
But no
Here's your prize
Oh yeah
They're unholy

Raging spirits kept from the light
Enslaved in worlds of doom
Marching armies to the darker side
The devil's black platoon
Torches raised no mercy
Victory was theirs
Such was life
In the unholy years

Step beyond the grave
A vision so insane
They opened the gates of Hell

Calling, Calling
The lonely night is calling
Faster, faster
Prelude for disaster
Get straight
But no
Here's your prize
Oh yeah
The unholy

Oh yeah
They're unholy
They're unholy
No

Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy

Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy

Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy

Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
Unholy
 
 
Mentally Yours
Timmy went out to play
With the friends he made
Why did they send him away
He drove his mommy mad
His daddy ran
They didn't understand
Now he gazes his cold nights through
Reliving all the things he would do
If only he had another chance
If that was all he had

His tension life
He beats the wife
Douse the cat with gasoline
Gotta try
The other side
He just has to get away
That's when it all began
Timmy lost his mind
Was just a matter of time
Before he went crazy

Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours

Running wild
Cause that's his style
Can't be held by any cage
Crossed the line
The final time
Tonight he takes his stage
That's when it all began
Timmy lost his mind
No one cried
When Timmy died

Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours

Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
I am mentally yours
Mentally yours
Mentally yours
Mentally yours
Mentally
Mentally
Mentally
Yours
 
 
Summer's Rain
Standing alone in a dream
Where nothing is real
But oh how real it feels
There were times I lost my way
I was alone, lost in a haze
Where are you now
I'll find you somehow

And do I stand alone
Like a fool out in the rain
Hanging on somehow
To an ancient vow
Where there's nothing left to gain
And do you know
How it feels inside
To be all alone
A fool and his pride

Scars are the wounds that we show
Time only heals
When you're letting go
Many night I'd lay awake
Tossing and turning till daybreak
Where are you now
I'll find you somehow

And do I stand alone
Like a fool out in the rain
Hanging on somehow
To an ancient vow
Where there's nothing left to gain
And do you know
How it feels inside
To be all alone
A fool and his pride

In a summer's rain
In a summer's rain
In a summer's rain
In a summer's rain

Sometimes you got to believe
Beyond yesterday
I'm gonna find my way
In the summer's rain
In a summer's rain
In a summer's rain
In a summer's rain
I'm gonna find a way
Run away
Far away
 
 
Thorazine Shuffle
Thinking about yesterday
How my life use to be
Now I'm locked inside this place
I'm a schizophrenic case
All the faces I now see
Never show a sign of glee
Every night we start to bustle
It's time to do the Thorazine shuffle
It's the Thorazine shuffle

Everyday half past four
They push my food through the door
Every night right at eight
They put me back into my straight
All the paintings I have made
They look kind of strange
Every night we start to hustle
It's time to do the Thorazine shuffle
It's the Thorazine shuffle

I'm getting anxious
I want it now
Oh yeah
