Sheriff of Huddersfield

Life in a city living in L.A.
Is a long way from Huddersfield town
The back of the Rainbow's a long way from heaven
But that's where he get's his pork pie
Limos and ladies they're driving him queasy
Rugby and cricket's unknown
Baseball and football they're making him lazy
Your fan club says "Rodney come home"

(chorus)
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
Look down on Hollywood Hills
The Sheriff of Huddersfield locked in his castle
You're our own Hot Rod on wheels

A good game of arrows a few dozen barrels
The Nautilus rusts in the yard
But for Yorkshire he's yearning but because he's earning
He'll always live in L.A.
A custom made wallet that stays in his pocket
And never comes out to pay bills
He's winning at poker and playing the Joker
And he always cheats when he deals

(repeat chorus)

(Rodney's rap)
Hello, let me introduce meself!
My name is Rodney. I'm immensely strong.
When I were a lad, I could lift up five
Navies on an end of a shovel.
The reason I never took martial arts because
I was immensely fearsome and
I'd probably kill everybody
I came into contact with it.
I was phenomenally strong.
Pride and ego, my lads, pride and ego,
Is what makes the world rotate.
And everybody knows the centre of the universe is Huddersfield
But I don't live there anymore.
I live in Los Angeles.
It's great!... I think

Rufus the red has a crane by his bed
To wrench himself up in the morn'
But if you dare to tread at the foot of his bed
You'll wish you'd never been born.
A bear with a sore head we mean your forehead
He slumbers for most of the day
Wide eyed and legless baked beans for breakfast
Your problem Rodney L.A.

(repeat chorus)

 

Sign of the Cross

Eleven saintly shrouded men
Silhouettes stand against the sky
One in front with a cross held high
Come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Caught by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubt in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the test
Nothing to do but await what is coming

Why then is god still protecting me
Even when I don't deserve it
Though I am blessed with an inner strength
Some they would call it a penance
Why am I meant to face this alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to God won't keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise...

They'll be saying their prayers
when the moment comes
There'll be penance to pay when it's judgement day
And the guilty'll bleed when the moment comes
They'll be coming to claim,
take your soul away

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose...
a fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

They'll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They'll be bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator my God'll lay my soul to rest

[Chorus]

Lost the love of heaven above
Chose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Came to wash my sins away

 

Space Station No. 5

Start, with the sun
And move on out
The future's in the skies above
The heavens unfold
And a new star is born
Space and time makin' love

Oh what a time we had
Living on the ground
I've moved to station #5
See you next time around,
Next time around

As far you want, as close as you need
It's all in the mind, you know
This old world hasn't really seen it's day
It's here, time to go

Oh what a time we had
Living on the ground
I've moved to station #5
See you next time around,

Remember when it was so clear
We were young, but the memory still remains
To pick fruit from a tree
Fish from the seas
Now nothing's left here, but the stains
Well I can't cry no more
Can only be glad
There's other places we can be
If the time suits you right
I'm leaving tonight
Come fly away
With me!
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Oh, yeah
Start, with the sun
And move on out
The future's in the skies above
The heavens unfold
A new star is born
Space and time makin' love

 

Starblind

Take my eyes, the things I've seen
In this world coming to an end.
My reflection fades, I'm weary
Of these earthly bones and skin.

You may pass through me and
Leave no trace, I have
No mortal face.
Solar winds are whispering,
You may hear me call.

We can shed our skins and swim
Into the darkened void beyond.
We will dance among the world
That orbit stars that aren't our sun.

All the oxygen that trapped us in
A carbon spider's web.
Solar winds are whispering, you
May hear the sirens of the dead.
Let the elders to their parley
Meant to satisfy our lust.
Leaving Damacles still hanging
Over all their promised trust.

Walk away from freedoms offered
By the jailors in their cage.
Step into the light, startripping
Over mortals in their rage.

Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

The preacher loses face
With Christ.
Religion's cruel device is gone.
Empty flesh and hollow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone.
The crucible of pain will forge the
Blanks of sin, begin again.
You are free to choose a life to live
Or one that's left to lose.

Virgins in the teeth of God are
Meat and drink to feed the damned.
You may pass through me and I
Will feel the life that you live less.
Step into my light, startripping.
We will rage against the night.

Walk away from comfort offered
By your citizens of death.

Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We won with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

Take my eyes for what I've seen.
I will give my sight to you.
You are free to choose whatever:
Life to live or life to lose.

Whatever God you know,
He knows you better than you
Believe.
In your once and future grave
You'll fall endlessly deceived.

Look into our face reflected in the
Moonglow in your eyes.
Remember you can choose
To look but not to see and
Waste your hours.

You believe you have the time
But I tell you your time is short.
See your past and future, all the
Same, and it cannot be bought.

Starblind with the sun, the
Stars are one.
We are the light that brings
The end of night.
Starblind with sun, the
Stars are one.
We won with the Goddess
Of the sun tonight.

Take my eyes for what I've seen.
I will give my sight to you.
You are free to choose whatever:
Life to live or life to lose.
Whatever God you know,
He knows you better than you
Believe.
In your once and future grave
You'll fall endlessly deceived.

The preacher loses face
With Christ.
Religion's cruel device is gone.
Empty flesh and hollow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone.
The crucible of pain will forge the
Blanks of sin, begin again.
You are free to choose a life to live
Or one that's left to lose.

 

Still Life

Take a look in the pool and what do you see
In the dark depths, their faces beckoning me
Can't you see them it's plain for all to see
They were there, oh I know you don't believe me.

Oh...I've never felt so strange
But...I'm not going insane.

I've no doubt that you think I'm off of my head
You don't say, but it's in your eyes instead
Hours I spend out just gazing into that pool
Something draws me there, I don't know what to do.

Oh...they drain my strength away
Oh...they're asking me to stay.

Nightmares...spirits calling me
Nightmares...they won't leave me be.

All my life's blood is slowly draining away
And I feel that I'm weaker every day
Somehow I know I haven't long to go
Joining them at the bottom of the pool.

Now I feel they are so near
I begin to see them clear.

Nightmares...coming all the time
Nightmares...Will give me peace of mind.

Now it's clear and I know what I have to do
I must take you down there to look at them too
Hand in hand then we'll jump right into the pool
Can't you see not just me they want you too.

Oh...we'll drown together
It...will be forever.

Nightmares...forever calling me
Nightmares...Now we rest in peace.

 

Strange World

The only place where you can dream, living here is not what it seems.
Ship of white light in the sky, nobody there to reason why.
Here I am, I'm not really there, smiling faces ever so rare.
A let's walk in deepest space, living here just isn't the place.

Stalks of light come from the ground, when I cry there isn't a sound.
All my feelings cannot be held, I'm happy in my new strange world.
Shades of green grasses twine, girls drinking plasma wine.
A look at love, a dream unfolds, living here, you'll never grow old.

Don't you hear me call? Ooh

 

Stranger in a Strange Land

Was many years ago that I left home and came this way
I was a young man, full of hopes and dreams
But now it seems to me that all is lost and nothing gained
Sometimes things ain't what they seem

No brave new world, no brave new world
No brave new world, no brave new world

Night and day I scan horizon, sea and sky
My spirit wanders endlessly
Until the day will dawn and friends from home discover why
Hear me calling, rescue me

Set me free, set me free
Lost in this place and leave no trace

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

One hundred years have gone and men again they came that way
To find the answer to the mystery
They found his body lying where it fell on that day
Preserved in time for all to see

No brave new world, no brave new world
Lost in this place and leave no trace

What became of the man that started
All are gone and their souls departed
Left me here in this place
So all alone

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

What became of the man that started
All are gone and their souls departed
Left me here in this place
So all alone

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

Stranger in a strange land
Land of ice and snow
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

Stranger in a strange land
Lost and far from home
Trapped inside this prison
Lost and far from home

 

Sun and Steel

Well, you killed your first man at 13,
Killer instinct, animal supreme,
By 16, you had learned to fight
The way of the warrior, you took it as your right.

(Chorus)
Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel.

(Repeat Chorus)

Through earth and water, fire and wind,
you came at last - nothing was the end,
Make a cut by fire and stones,
Take you and your blade and break you both in two - break you both in two.

Sunlight, falling on your steel,
Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel - rolling on and on!

(Repeat Chorus 3x)

Sunlight falling on your steel,
Death and life your ideal,
Life is like a wheel - and it's rolling still...

 

Tailgunner

Trace your way back 50 years
To the glow of Dresden - blood and tears
In the black above by the cruel searchlight
Men will die and men will fight - yeah|
Who shot who and who fired first?
Dripping death to whet the bloodthirst
No radar lock on - skin and bone
The bomber boys are going home

Chorus

Climb into the sky never wonder why - Tailgunner
You're a Tailgunner

(repeat)

Nail that Fokker, kill that son.
I'm Gonna blow your guts out with my gun
The weather forecast's good for war
Cologne and Frankfurt? Have some more|
Tail end Charlie in the boiling sky
The Enola Gay was my last try
Now that this Tailgunner's gone
No more bombers (just one big bomb)

Chorus

 

Tears of the Dragon

For too long now
There were secrets in my mind
For too long now
There were things I should have said
In the darkness
I was stumbling for the door
To find a reason
To find the time,the place,the hour

Waiting for the winter sun
And the cold light of day
The misty ghosts of childhood fears
The pressure is building
And I can't stay away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Where I was
I had wings that couldn't fly
Where I was
I had tears I couldn't cry
My emotions
Frozen in an icy lake
I couldn't feel them
Until the ice began to break

I have no power over this
You know I'm afraid
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me

Slowly I awake
Slowly I rise
The walls I built are crumbling
The water is moving
I'm slipping away

I throw myself into the sea
Release the wave
Let it wash over me
To face the fear
I once believed
The tears of the dragon
For you and for me
