2 AM

I get in from work at 2a.m.
And sit down with a beer
Turn on the late night t.v.
And then wonder why I'm here
It's meaningless and trivial
And it washes over me
And once again I wonder
Is this all there is for me

Here I am again
Look at me again
Here I am again
On my own
Trying hard to see
What there is for me
Here I am again
On my own

Life seems so pathetic
I wish I could leave it all behind
This canvas chair, this bed,
these walls that fall in on my mind
Hold on for something better
That just drags you trough the dirt
Do you just let go or carry on
And try to take the hurt

Here I am again
Look at me again
Here I am again
On my own
Trying hard to see
What there is for me
Here I am again
On my own

Here I am again
Look at me again
Here I am again
On my own
Trying hard to see
What there is for me
Here I am again
On my own

Alone again
Alone again
I'm here on my own

 

2 Minutes To Midnight

Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don't need a reason
The Golden Goose is on the loose
And never out of season
Blackened pride still burns inside
This shell of bloody treason
Here's my gun for a barrel of fun
For the love of living death

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
But don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The blind men shout let the creatures out
We'll show the unbelievers
Napalm screams and human flames
For a prime time Belsen feast...YEAH!
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two
And the jellied brains of those who remain to put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all dance to their song
To the tune of starving millions, to make a better kind of gun

The killer's breed or the demon's seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom's stain
Don't you pray for my soul anymore

2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

Midnight...Midnight...Midnight...It's all night
Midnight...Midnight...Midnight...It's all night

Midnight...All night!

 

22 Acacia Avenue

If you're feeling down depressed and lonely
I know a place where we can go
22 Acacia Avenue meet a lady that I know
So if you're looking for a good time
And you're prepared to pay the price
Fifteen quid is all she asks for
Everybody's got their vice

If you're waiting for a long time for the rest to do their piece
You can tell her that you know me and you might even get it free
So any time you're down the East End don't you hesitate to go
You can take my honest word for it she'll teach you more than you can know

Charlotte can't you get out from all of this madness
Can't you see it only brings you sadness
When you entertain your men don't you know the risk of getting disease

Some day when you're reaching the age of forty
I bet you'll regret the days when you were laying
Nobody then will want to know
You won't have any beautiful wares to show any more

22 the avenue that's the place where we all go
You will find it's warm inside the red light's burning bright tonight

Charlotte isn't it time you stopped this mad life
Don't you ever think about the bad times
Why do you have to live this way
Do you enjoy your lay or is it the pay

Sometimes when you're strolling down the avenue
The way you walk it makes men think of having you
When you're walking down the street
Everybody stops and turns to stare at you

22 the avenue that's the place where we all go
You will find it's warm inside the red light's burning bright tonight

Beat her mistreat her do anything that you please
Bite her excite her make her get down on her knees
Abuse her misuse her she can take all that you've got
Caress her molest her she always does what you want

You're running away don't you know what you're doing
Can't you see it'll lead you to ruin
Charlotte you've taken your life and you've thrown it away
You believe that because what you're earning
Your life's good don't you know that you're hurting
All the people that love you don't cast them aside
All the men that are constantly drooling
It's no life for you stop all that screwing
You're packing your bags and you're coming with me

 

Aces High

There goes the siren that warns of the air raid,
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak.
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne,
Got to get up for the coming attack.

Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines,
Remove all the wheelblocks there's no time to waste.
Gathering speed as we head down the runway,
Got to get airborne before it's too late.

Running, scrambling, flying,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Running, scrambling, flying, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!

Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers,
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away.
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them,
Move to their blindsides and firing again.

Bandits at 8 O'clock move in behind us,
Ten ME-109's out of the sun.
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them,
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.

Rolling, turning, diving,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Rolling, turning, diving, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!!!

 

Afraid To Shoot Strangers

Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat
From my brow
But it's not the fear 'cos
I'd rather go now

Trying to visualize the horrors that
Will lay ahead
But desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time
We'll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what's
To be done
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy shall be done... on earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the
Reasons to go
Should we live and let live
Forget or forgive

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror corruption must end
And we know deep down there's
No other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

 

Age of Innocence

I can't be compromising in my thoughts no more
I can't prevent the times my anger fills my heart
I can't be sympathyzing with a new lost cause
I feel I've lost my patience with the world and all

And all the politicians and their hollow promises
And all the lies, deceit and shame that goes with it
The working man pays everything for their mistakes
And with his life too if there was to be a war

So we only get one chance can we take it
And we only get one life can't exchange it
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
The age of innocence is fading..... Like an old dream

A life of petty crime gets punished with a holiday
The victims' minds are scarred for life most everyday
Assailants know just how much further they can go
They know the laws are soft conviction chances low

So we only get one chance can we take it
And we only get one life can't exchange it
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
The age of innocence is fading..... Like an old dream

You can't protect yourselves even in your own home
For fear of vigilante cries the victims wipe their eyes
So now the criminals they laugh right in our face
Judicial system lets them do it, a disgrace

Despondent public worries where it all will end
we can't protect ourselves our kids from crime the trend
We cannot even warn each other of evil in our midst
They have more rights than us, you cannot call that just

So we only get one chance can we take it
And we only get one life can't exchange it
Can we hold on to what we have don't replace it
The age of innocence is fading..... Like an old dream

The age of innocence is fading..... Like an old dream

 

Alexander the Great

"My son ask for thyself another
Kingdom, for that which I leave
Is too small for thee"
(King Philip of Macedonia - 339 B.C.)

Near to the east
In a part of ancient Greece
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son
To Philip of Macedon
The legend his name was Alexander

At the age of nineteen
He became the Macedon King
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegean Sea
In 334 B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

King Darius the third
Defeated fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria

By the Tigris river
He met King Darius again
And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa, treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the Gordian knot
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Hellenism he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a Western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity

Marching on, marching on

The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander's army line by line
They wouldn't follow him to India
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon

 

All in Your Mind

Look inside your head and find, tell me now and it's all in your mind
Look inside your head and find a way deep inside and it's all in your mind

It's all in your mind
It's all in your mind

Revolution, air pollution, Chairman Mao Tse Tung is in your mind
"But he's dead pal... He's not very well anyway..."
A new day breaking-people hating
Love's a dream and it's all in your mind

SOLO

Segregation, preservation, politicians all are in your mind
Pewter suta, Karma Sutra, even Blanckenheimer's in your mind

Yes...

It's all in your mind
It's all in your mind

 

Another Life

As I lay here lying on my bed
Sweet voices come into my head.
Oh what it is, I wanna know
Please won't you tell me it's got to go.
There's a feeling that's inside me
Telling me to get away.
But I'm so tired of living
I might as well end today.

 

Another Rock And Roll Christmas

Christmas
Christmas
Christmas

Light the lights, ring the chimes
Come on in its party time
Raise a glass for old lang syne
Come on and rock it up for all mankind
Good to see friends I know
Kissin' under the mistletoe
I love to hear the children sing
It looks like santa's gonna' bring...

(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
Presents hangin' from the tree
You'll never guess what you've got from me
(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
You better be off home, shut up tight
You never know it might snow tonight

Guys and gals stay up late
They're so excited they can't wait
Let there be peace on earth
Come on and rock and roll for all your worth
Were gonna' laugh were gonna' sing
Were gonna' make the rafters ring
Pull my cracker
Let me be the silver star upon your tree

(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
All dressed up so here we go
Do I hear sleigh bells in the snow?
(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
Tonight old santa never ever stops
He rocks around the chimney tops

And you'll be rockin' in your stockin'
When you see your big surprise
Cause you'll be rockin' in your stockin
You won't believe your big blue eyes

Come on in join the fun
It's Christmas time for everyone
May your days be merry and bright
This ain't gonna' be no silent night
See the stars glittering
Soon they're gonna' see the new year in
Everyone's huggin kiss me quick
I'm gonna rock and roll for old saint nick

(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
Presents hangin' from the tree
You'll never guess what you've got from me
(another rock and roll Christmas)
Another Christmas rock and roll
You're better be off home, shut up tight
You never know it might snow tonight

Christmas

Another Christmas rock and roll
All dressed up so here we go
Do I hear sleigh bells in the snow?

Another Christmas rock and roll
Tonight old santa never ever stops
He rocks around the chimney tops
