That Girl

The words she said turned out why
Desperation fills her eyes
Hold her in your arms
Don't let go

When you taste defeat, when you loose again
Fight and win, never give in
Hold her in your arms
Don't let go
BRIDGE:
That girl you need
Gonna knock you off your feet
That girl, you know
She'll never let you go

CHORUS:
That girl, That girl, That girl you need
That girl, That girl, That girl, That girl

Can you hear her call, call out your name
Think about you, cry without you
Hold her in your arm
Don't let go

Can you taste defeat, when you loose again
Fight and win, never give in
Hold her in your arms
Don't let go

You need!

 

The Aftermath

Silently to silence fall
In the fields of futile war
Toys of death are spitting lead
Where boys that were our soldiers bled
war horse and war machine

Curse the name of liberty
Marching on as if they should
Mix in the dirt our brothers' blood

In the mud and rain
What are we fighting for
Is it worth the pain is it worth dying for
Who will take the blame
Why did they make a war
Questions that come again
Should we be fighting at all

Once a ploughman hitched his team
Here he sowed his little dream
Now bodies arms and legs are strewn
Where mustard gas and barbwire bloom
Each moment's like a year
I've nothing left inside for tears
Comrades dead or dying lie
I'm left alone asking why

In the mud and rain
What are we fighting for
Is it worth the pain is it worth dying for
Who will take the blame
Why did they make a war
Questions that come again
Should we be fighting at all

After the war,Left feeling no one has won
After the war,What does a soldier become
After the war,Left feeling no one has won
After the war,What does a soldier become

What is at home when the battles are done
After the war when no one has won
I'm just a soldier

4:23-Solo (Janick Gers)

After the war,Left feeling no one has won
After the war,What does a soldier become
After the war,Left feeling no one has won
After the war,What does a soldier become

 

The Alchemist

Stranger than the comet
As it streaks across the sky
Stranger than the truth I know
Before I open my eyes

I have dealt in mysteries
And a trickery of light to entertain
Looked into my abyss
Called it by it's name

I have plundered time itself
Put the world inside it
And the mysteries day and night
Divide it

A plague of wonders
On your knees beside me
Know the secrets
You shall not deride us
My dreams of empire for my
Frozen Queen will come to pass
Know me the Magus I am
Doctor Dee and this is my house

I am the master of the tides
I shame the mirror in my sight
What random music of the spheres
Across the years

Know this I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chain of the Demons set free
Strange Alchemy

Gather round the aimless and the
Feckless and the lame
Hear the master summon up
The spirits by their names

I curse you Edward Kelly your
Betrayal for eternity is damned
Know you speak with Demons you
Cannot command

Even as I look into the glass
Then I was blinded
Burning by the Mortlake shore
My house my books inside it
You have taken up my wife
And lain beside her
Now the black rain on my house
The timbers burning

My dreams of empire for my
Frozen Queen will come to pass
Know me the Magus I am
Doctor Dee and this was my house

I was the keeper of books
I had the knowledge of the scrolls
But now through ignorance
And fear
I cast a shadow through the years

Know this I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Chains of the Demons set free
Strange Alchemy

Know this I will return to this land
Rebuild where the ruins did stand
Restore the knowledge memory
Strange Alchemy

 

The Angel and the Gambler

Roll of the dice
Take a spin of the wheel
Out of your hands now
So how do you feel
But you're not gonna win
You'd better go back again

Do you feel lucky
Or do you feel scared
Take what luck brings
And be Devil may care
But you're down on your luck
What will the next day bring

Adrift on the ocean
Afloat in a daydream
Or lost in a maze
Or blind in the haze
So what does it matter
So why don't you answer
So why did you send
An angel to mend

Best make decisions
Before it's too late
Take all your chances
Take hold of the reins
A roll of the dice
Ahead of the game again

Nothing to lose
But so much to gain
A little danger
It goes without saying
But what do you care
You're gonna go in the end
Gate open to heaven

Is ready and waiting
Or straight down to hell
Can go there as well

I'll suffer my craving
My soul's not worth saving
So why don't you go
Just leave well alone

Don't you think I'm a savior
Don't you think I could save you
Don't you think I could save your life

There's like a hunger
That knocks on your door
You've had a taste of it
Still you want more
You've made your mistakes
Won't play it the same again

You have been warned
But still you plunge in
You play high stakes
But there's nothing to win
You've only one life
And so many things to learn

The Angel on one side
The Devil the other
Which path do you take
Decisions to make

Arrive at the crossroads
You know where you're going
And what if you wait
It may be too late

 

The Apparition

(Harris/Gers) 3:55

I'm here can you see me
'Cos I'm out on my own
When the room goes cold tell me
You can feel me
..........'cos I'm here

Here I am, can't you see me
Passing through, on my way
To a place I'd been to only in my
Dreams... before

In a world of delusion
Never turn your back on a friend
'Cos you can count your
Real true friends on one hand

..........through life

There are those that deceive you
There are those that'll let you down
Is there someone out there that would
Die for you
..........thought not

Live your life with a passion
Everything you do, do well
You only get out of life what you put in
..........so they say

In a world of confusion
People never say what they mean
If you want a straight answer
Go look for one
..........right now

In a room full of strangers
Do you stand with your back to the wall
Do you sometimes feel like you're
On the outside
..........looking in?

You can make your own luck
You create your destiny
I believe you have the power
If you want to
..........it's true

You can do what you want to
If you try a little bit harder
A little bit of faith goes a long way
..........it does

Are we here for a reason?
I'd like to know just what you think
It would be nice to know what
Happens when we die
..........wouldn't it?

There are some who are wise
There are some who are born naive
I believe that there are some that must
Have lived before
..........don't you?

As for me, well I'm thinking
You gotta keep an open mind
But I hope that my life's not an
Open and shut case

Extrasensory Perception
Life after death, telepathy
Can the soul live on and travel through
Space and time?

You know I feel so elated
'Cos I'm about to find it out
And when I know all the answers
Maybe then I'll come back
..........to fill you in

You don't be alarmed now
If I try to contact you
If things go missing or get moved around
...it's me
And don't disbelieve it
No matter what your "friends"
Might say
We'll meet up again someplace
Some way
..........one day

 

The Assassin

Now the contracts out
They've put the word about
I'm coming after you

It's not the money I make
It's the thrill of the chase
And I'm coming after you

I watch your every move
Study the things you do
And the pattern of your ways

I watch the way you walk
I hear your telephone talk
I want to understand the way you think

Chorus
Better watch out,cos I'm the assassin,
Better watch out,better watch out
(repeat)

I'm in a cold cold sweat
I taste the smell of death
I know the moment's getting closer

And as you walk to the light
I feel my hands go tight
Excitement running through my veins

I've got you in my sights
I've got you dead to rights
The triggers waiting for my finger

I feel adrenalin rush
It's just the final touch
You can kiss your ass goodbye

Chorus

 

The Clairvoyant

Feel the sweat break on my brow
Is it me or is it shadows that are dancing on the walls
Is this a dream or is it now
Is this a vision or normality I see before my eyes

I wonder why I wonder how
That it seems the powers getting stronger every day
I feel a strength an inner fire
But I'm scared I won't be able to control it anymore

There's a time to live and a time to die
When it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
That as soon as you're born you're dying

Just by looking through your eyes
He could see the future penetrating right in through your mind
See the truth and see your lies
But for all his power couldn't foresee his own demise

There's a time to live and a time to die
When it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
That as soon as you're born you're dying

There's a time to live and a time to die
When it's time to meet the maker
There's a time to live but isn't it strange
That as soon as you're born you're dying...
... and be reborn again?

 

The Clansman

Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be free and a race
That is part of a clan
And to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean

When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel
Just to be free

Is it right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding things down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman
Freedom

It's a time wrought with fear
It's a land wrought with change

Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
And we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns
Will be born free

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what I want
I am the clansman
Freedom

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We've the land of the free
OOOOOOOOOO ooooooOooo OOOOOOOOO

Is it right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding things down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman
Freedom

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman.

 

The Duellists

He threw down a glove you made the mistake
Of picking it up now you're gone
The choosing of guns or fighting with swords
The choice of weapons is done
He'll tear you apart as soon as you start
You know you don't have a chance.

CHORUS
OH...OH...Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour
Fight for the pleasure
OH...OH...Fight for the honour
Fight for the splendour
Fight for your life!

Ready to start the duel begins the best man wins in the end.
A lunge and a feint, a parry too late
A cut to the chest and you're down
Seeing the stain then feeling the pain
Feeling the sweat on your brow.

CHORUS

The fighting resumes, a silence looms the swordsmen move 'gainst each other
A cut and a thrust, a parry, a blow, a stab to the heart and you're down
The Angel of Death hears your last breath
Meanwhile the Reaper looks on.

CHORUS
OH...OH...Fought the honour
Fought for the splendour
Fought for the pleasure
OH...OH...Fought for the honour
Fought for the splendour
Fought to the death

 

The Edge of Darkness

I've looked into the heart of darkness
Where the blood red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness
Even your soul begins to bend

For a week I have been waiting
Still I am only in Saigon
The walls move in a little closer
I feel the jungle call me on

Every minute I get weaker
While in the jungle they grow strong
What I wanted was a mission
And for my sins they gave me one

They brought it up just like room service
Cause everyone gets what they want
And when that mission was all over
I'd never want another one

I know, captain that you've done this work before
We've got a problem you can help us all I'm sure
The colonel's gone rogue
and his methods are unsound
You'll take a PBR up river track him down

There's a conflict in every human heart
And the temptation is to take it all too far
In this war things get so confused
But there are some things which can not be excused

He's acting like a god an insane lunatic
Your mission - exterminate with extreme prejudice
The route is dangerous and your progress may be slow
Here is the file and it's all you need to know

Here I am the knife in my hand
And now I understand why the genius must die

Now I stand alone in darkness
With his blood upon my hands
Where sat the warrior the poet
Now lie the fragments of a man

I've looked into the heart of darkness
Where the blood red journey ends
When you've faced the heart of darkness
Even your soul begins to bend

I've looked into the heart of darkness
