1. ARMED AND READY

Are you high tonight, are you feeling right,
Cos I need you now, like I never did before,
Is it hard enough, is It loud enough
Cos if you don't approve,you can use the door
Armed and ready,I gotta gunsight trained on you
I'm in overdrive,and I feel alive,
Got everything I need, and that ain't all,
Got a thing to do, I wanna do for you,
I wanna see you jump like hell when I call
Armed and ready, I gotta spotlight trained on you
Armed and ready, don't let me down tonight
Are you high tonight, are you feeling right,
Cos I need you now, like I never did before,
Is it hard enough, is It loud enough
Cos if you don't approve,you can use the door
Armed and ready,I got my gunsight trained on you
Armed and ready,don't let me down tonight
Are you high tonight, are you feelin right,
is it hard enough, is it loud enough,
Are you high!


2. CRY FOR THE NATION

A time of fear, so long ago,
Lived a man in Salon,
In his dark and magic room,
He gazed on times to come,
All is then revealed, and visions on water speak true!
Cry for the nations, cry for the nations.
A flash of light, fills the night,
And chills the blood in his veins,
Will the power possess his mind, soul in chains
All is then revealed, and tears that he shed were for you
Cry for the nations, cry for the nations.
Battles of kings, and of fools,
And changes in ways he once knew,
As pages of days fade away
He's lost in time...
Cry for the nations. Fade.


3. VICTIM OF ILLUSION

I can't put out the fire,been blinded by the flame,
I have to run for cover, can't stand the pain
Can't stand the pain
The screams are loud but then he can't hear
Nightmare shows his face, then disappears
Ooh victim of illusion, ooh victim of illusion
Gone is the free expression, but look into my eyes,
The silent world is laughing, the mirror never lies,
The mirror never lies!
The screams are loud but then he can't hear
Nightmare shows his face, then disappears
Ooh victim of illusion, ooh victim of illusion
Down, down, you gotta find a way, cos if you
Don't believe in what you're seeing now
There's nothing more to say!
I can't put out the fire, been blinded by the flame
I have to run for cover, can't stand the pain
Can't stand the pain
The screams are loud but then he can't hear
Nightmare shows his face, then disappears,
Ooh victim of illusion, ooh victim of illusion.

5. FEELS LIKE A GOOD THING

I know what I need, and you've got what I want
Use your imagination'
Got that look in your eye's
So hard to disguise your situation
If it feels like a good thing,it's down to you girl
If it feels like a good thing, you know what to do
There's a hunger in me, I just can't seem to please,
And you've got the connections
Try not to fight, when the feeling is right,
Just move my direction
If it feels like a good thing,it's down to you girl
If it feels like a good thing, you know what to do
I know what I need and you got what I want,
Use your imagination
There's a hunger in me I just can't seem to please
Love starvation.
But if it feels, if it feels like a good thing
Feels allright, feels like a good thing.


6. INTO THE ARENA

(Instrumental)


7. LOOKING OUT FROM NOWHERE

As I look out into the night, I m alone here,
There are so many empty faces around, all around me
As I try to get through, it seems like
They don't understand me:
And they keep pulling me back
To take part in their fantasies,
But I get this feeling, when I look inside,
It's such a strange feeling, I can't hide
But what can I do, where can I go,
When I've come this far
I'm looking out, looking out from nowhere
I'm looking out, looking out forever
But, now the time is right
I've got to break out to the other side
But you can never know
What the other side has got to show!
As I try to get through, it seems like
They don't understand me,
And they keep pulling me back
To take part in their fantasies,
But I get this feeling, when I look inside,
It's such a strange feeling, I can't hide
But what can I do, where can I go,
When I've come this far
I'm looking out, looking out from nowhere
I'm looking out, looking out forever.


8. TALES OF MYSTERY

I have wandered a lifetime
From the ocean to the shore
And the tides of time, keep flowing
And telling tales of mystery.
Who could say that I'd love again
River, flow my tears!
Could I still have this broken heart,
After all these years
More and more, each day girl
I'm coming back to your heart
And the tides of time keep flowing
Telling tales of mystery...
Who could say that I'd love again
River, flow my tears!
Could I still have this broken heart,
After all these years.


9. LOST HORIZONS

I've stood in time, wind and rain
I have no feelings or name,
But I can see, I can hear,
The voice of death is shouting in my ear!
Making war, making love
You know what I'm thinking of
How many times the traps are set,
You can't remember, and I can't forget!
Can you see me now, can you feel the pain,
Can you heal the scars on me
Life within my heart, hope within my soul, is dying!
Bid farewell, the works of men
When cries of anger sound again
My tears of shame, cut like a knife,
How can I justify this life!
Can you see me now, can you feel the pain,
Can you heal the scars on me
Life within my heart, hope within my soul, is dying!
My mind is searching for reasons why
A time to live or die
If we had now what we had then
Lost horizons might return again...
Can you see me now, can you feel the pain,
Can you heal the scars on me
Life within my heart, hope within my soul, is dying!
Lost horizons...
