Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Hear the rime of the ancient mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the sea.

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
To a place where nobody's been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
Hailed in God's name, hoping good luck it brings.

And the ship sails on, back to the North
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on.

The mariner kills the bird of good omen
His shipmates cry against what he's done
But when the fog clears, they justify him
And make themselves a part of the crime.

Sailing on and on and north across the sea
Sailing on and on and north 'til all is calm.

The albatross begins with its vengeance
A terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner
About his neck, the dead bird is hung.

And the curse goes on and on AND ON at sea
And the thirst goes on and on for them and me.

"Day after day, day after day,
We stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and
All the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink."

There calls the mariner
There comes a ship over the line
But how can she sail with no wind in her sails and no tide.

See...onward she comes
Onward she nears out of the sun
See, she has no crew
She has no life, wait but there's two.

Death and she Life in Death,
They throw their dice for the crew
She wins the mariner and he belongs to her now.
Then...crew one by one
They drop down dead, two hundred men
She...she, Life in Death.
She lets him live, her chosen one.

"One after one by the star dogged moon,
Too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
And cursed me with his eye
Four times fifty living men
(and I heard nor sigh nor groan)
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one."

The curse it lives on in their eyes
The mariner he wished he'd die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he.

And by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them
God's creatures all of them too.

Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the sea
Then down in falls comes the rain.

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
See them stir and they start to rise
Bodies lifted by good spirits
None of them speak and they're lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on.

Now the curse is finally lifted
And the mariner sights his home
Spirits go from the long dead bodies
Form their own light and the mariner's left alone.

And then a boat came sailing towards him
It was a joy he could not believe
The pilot's boat, his son and the hermit,
Penance of life will fall onto him.

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
And the hermit shrieves the mariner of his sins.

The mariner's bound to tell of his story
To tell this tale wherever he goes
To teach God's word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made.

And the wedding guest's a sad and wiser man
And the tale goes on and on and on.

 

Road To Hell

Slowly bleeding, watch the vortex feeding
Like a swirling vulture on your face
Every hour the unseen rays devour
Your screaming eyes cry out but they are blind

Father, forgive me my sins
Give me the nails, I'll hammer them in

The road to hell is full of good intentions
Say farewell, we may never meet again
The road to hell is full of good intentions
Get on the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

Brave new world of secret fantasy
That hovers just beyond your bloody grasp
Close enough to thrill, the danger of the kill
Price for failure of your will

Father, forgive us our sins
'Cause we're all the junkies who never can win

The road to hell is full of good intentions
Say farewell, we may never meet again
The road to hell is full of good intentions
Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

Father, forgive me my sins
Give me the nails, I'll hammer them in

The road to hell is full of good intentions
Parody of hope is the one that I must kill
We all have to live with our family inventions
Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

The road to hell is full of good intentions
Say farewell, we may never meet again
The road to hell is full of good intentions
Down the left-hand highway with no sinister regrets

 

Roll Over Vic Vella

The Vikings are coming
You'd better get ready
For we're having a fight
The longboats are coming
It's looking like their?
In the dead of the night

Muster the men from all the villages
You'd better get ready to fight
With your enemies
Beacons are burning
I'm giving the word
To get ready to fight
The battle is nearing
You'd better get ready
To fight for your lives

The norsemen are coming
The norsemen are coming
The warnings are given
The norsemen are coming

Rapping and pillaging
Robbing and looting the land

Viking raiders from afar

 

Run Silent Run Deep

The convoy lights are dead ahead
The Merchantmen lay in their bed,
The trump of... diesels hammers down,
In the oily sea - the killing ground,
His knuckles white his eyes alight,
He slams the hatch on the deadly night,
A cunning fox in the chickens lair
A hound of hell and the devil don't care

[Chorus]
Running silent, Running deep, we are your final prayer,
Warriors in secret sleep, a merchantman's nightmare,
A silent death lies waiting, for all of you below,
Running silent, Running deep, sink into your final sleep

Chill the hearts of fighting men,
In open ocean wondering when?
The lethal silver fish will fly
The boat will shiver - men will die
A cast of millions - a part of play
Killer? Victim? or fool for a day
Obeying an order - men have to die
Us or them - a well rehearsed lie

[Chorus]

The lifeboats shattered the hull is torn,
The tar black smell of burning oil,
On the way down to Davy Jones,
Every man for himself - you're on your own
The wolf eyes watch the crosswire
"Stern tubes ready", "Aim and fire!"
They can pin some medal on your chest,
But in two more weeks - dead like the rest

[Chorus]

 

Run to the Hills

White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for Cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dust clouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills, run for your lives
Run to the hills, run for your lives

Soldier blue in the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good Indians are tame
Selling them whiskey and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills, run for your lives

 

Running Free

Just sixteen a pickup truck
Out of money, out of luck
I've got no place to call my own
Hit the gas and here I go

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
Oh, I'm running free

Spent the night in an L.A. jail
And listened to the sirens wail
They ain't got a thing on me
Running wild, running free

I'm running free yeah
I'm running free, come on
I'm running free yeah
I'm running free, get out of my way

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free, yeah

Puller at the Bottle Top
Whiskey dancing disco hop
Now all the boys are after me
That's the way it's gonna be

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free, yeah

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free

I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free, yeah
I'm running free

 

Sanctuary

Out of the winter came a war horse of steel.
I've never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels.

*Chorus*:
I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw.
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law.
So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright.
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight.

I met up with a 'slinger last night to keep me alive.
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive.

*Chorus*

I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain.
Down in the Canyon or out in the plain.

*Chorus*

 

Satellite 15... The Final Frontier

I try to call the Earth's command
Desperation in my voice
I'm drifting way off course now
With very little choice

The loneliness is hart to bear
I try to calm my fear
Just hoping any second now
Some contact filters through

Desperate calls... Signal back from Satellite
As my life... flashes right in front of me

Try again... Must get through
Hear me now... For I've very little time

Not much time... Hear my call
Please get through... I am here

I'm stranded in space
I'm lost without trace
I haven?t a chance of getting away

Too close too the Sun
I surely will burn
Like Icarus before me
Or so legend goes

I think of my life
Reliving the past
There's nothing but wait
'Til my time comes

I've had a good life
I'd do it again
Maybe I'll come back
some time afresh

(Chorus)
For I have lived my life to the full
I have no regrets
But I wish I could talk to my family
To tell them that one last goodbye

The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...

If I could survive
To live one more time
I wouldn't be changing a thing at all

Done more in my life
Than some do in ten
I'd go back and do it all over again

(Chorus)

The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...

There isn't much time
Must say my last rites
Nobody is here to read them to me

Must say my goodbyes
If only a line
A message to tell them in case they might find...

(Chorus)

The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...
The Final Frontier...

 

Sea of Madness

Out in the street somebody's crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying
Reached the point of no return

Oh, my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh, my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

Somewhere I hear a voice that's calling
Out in the dark there burns a dream
You got to hope when you are falling
To find the world that you have seen

Oh - my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh - my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
Out on the sea of madness

It's madness
The sun don't shine
On the sea of madness
There ain't no wind to fill your sails
Madness
When all you see can only bring you sadness
On towards the sea we go...

Out in the night somebody's crying
Out in the night the fires burn
Maybe tonight somebody's crying
Reached the point of no return

Oh - my eyes they see but I can't believe
Oh - my heart is heavy as I turn my back and leave

Like the eagle and the dove
Fly so high on wings above
When all you see can only bring you sadness
Like a river we will flow
On towards the sea we go
When all you do can only bring you sadness
On the sea of madness

Of madness

 

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

(Harris)

Here they stand brothers them all
All the sons divided they'd fall
Here await the birth of the son
The seventh, the heavenly, the chosen one

Ooooh!

Here the birth from an unbroken line
Born the healer the seventh, his time
Unknowingly blessed and as his life unfolds
Slowly unveiling the power he holds

Ooooh!

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son.
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son.

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son.
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son

Oh oh-ooh-ooh oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooh
Oh oh-ooh-ooh oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooh

Then they watch the progress he makes
The Good and the Evil which path will he take
Both of them trying to manipulate
The use of his powers before it's too late

Ooooh!

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son.
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son

Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son.
Seventh son of a seventh son
Seventh son of a seventh son

Oh oh-ooh-ooh oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooh
Oh oh-ooh-ooh oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooh

[guitar and bass]

Today is born the seventh one
Born of woman the seventh son
And he in turn of a seventh son
He has the power to heal
He has the gift of the second sight
He is the chosen one
So it shall be written
So it shall be done

[guitar and bass continues]

[then guitar solo]
