歌词


1. BLACK SKIES

Now you don't know just how I feel
Nothing I hear makes it seem real
I'd be amazed if we survive
We don't relate, being alive

Take this blood red rose
Go anywhere
Never let it show
You know

Black skies draw near
Waiting for me
Captured and running through life
There's no escape
Crimson the blood of us all
Make no mistake

The problem I have, don't know who I am
I might be the ghost of every man
It's hard to fit in this world today
Some of us blessed and carried away

Take this blood red rose
Go anywhere
Never let it show
You know

Black skies are here
Leaning on me
Stranded but hidden in shame
All colours pale
Walking away from it all
How to prevail?

Gone as the sunlight fills my eyes with a sorrow
And without warning kills the flame of tomorrow

Black skies draw near
Waiting for me
Captured and running through life
There's no escape
Crimson the blood of us all
Make no mistake

Black skies are here
Leaning on me
Stranded but hidden in shame
All colours pale
Walking away from it all
How to prevail?


2. DOORS TO NOWHERE

Up every day, took my clothes off the chair
Poured out a drink, from the old Frigidaire
Some magazines, by the fire never touched
Shiny red step, always cleaned, always brushed

Now those days are gone, gone for us all
They wonʼt return, once there was a time, you may recall

Over the wasteland, the full moon would rise
Hot summer nights, put the stars in our eyes
Caught in the storm, between thunder and rain
Ran down the hillside, like we were insane

Behind doors to nowhere
We hide our childhood dreams
We pass time without care
Deceive when weʼre not there

Sun blinds pulled down, made the walls tangerine
Dancers in white, playing their tambourines
Slow dusty trains, disappeared in the haze
Coaches arrived, at the crowded cafes

Now those days are gone, gone for us all
They wonʼt return, once there was a time, you may recall

Over the wasteland, the full moon would rise
Hot summer nights, put the stars in our eyes
Caught in the storm, between thunder and rain
Ran down the hillside, like we were insane

Behind doors to nowhere
We hide our childhood dreams
We pass time without care
Deceive when weʼre not there


3. THE VISITATION

All that has passed, all that you can't let go
You shouldn't ask, some things you'll never know
Straight to your heart, just like an open door
Tears it apart, just like it's done before

The visitation is inside your head but
No one is speaking and you keep your eyes shut
In desperation you dream so deep while
You try to reach out like somebody's lost child

Evening has come, flickered in candle light
There must be some, spirit in here tonight
And do you know, someone looks out for you?
But they will show, patience in getting through

The visitation will bring you nearer
And give you comfort so you'll see things clearer
No conversation will explain the feeling
But when the moment comes there's no concealing

The visitation is inside your head but
No one is speaking and you keep your eyes shut
In desperation you dream so deep while
You try to reach out like somebody's lost child

The visitation will bring you nearer
And give you comfort so you'll see things clearer
No conversation will explain the feeling
But when the moment comes there's no concealing


4. WILD ANGELS

Nobody's leaving this world tonight
The way I'm feeling, we'll be all right
So many people, going nowhere
The poor forsaken, nobody cares

I wonder what you're thinking
I don't know where you are
Can't stop my heart from sinking
Before it gets too far

Wild angels in the sky, baby
Diamonds fall like rain
Nobody told you why, baby
Isn't that a shame?

The room is empty, the city sleeps
We pass by gently, and shadows creep
But come tomorrow, there's no relief
And I'm still looking in disbelief

I wonder what you're thinking
I don't know where you are
Can't stop my heart from sinking
Before it gets too far

Wild angels in the sky, baby
Thunder in the air
Don't let it make you cry, baby
You won't have a prayer

Something out of nothing, tell me if I'm right
Stranded here forever, take me home tonight
Maybe let it happen, keep it in your mind
Maybe there's no answer, don't get left behind

Wild angels in the sky, baby
Diamonds fall like rain
Nobody told you why, baby
Isn't that a shame?

Wild angels in the sky, baby
Thunder in the air
Don't let it make you cry, baby
You won't have a prayer


5. SPIN LIKE A WHEEL

Spin like a wheel, I fall down to my knees
Don't you know how bad that feels
It hurts when you're in need
Never forget, never regret

I don't know where to go
I could run through the rain
But there's one thing I know
Never forget, never regret

Now tell me if you can
Just how it all began

Unfamiliar you came
And there was no guarantee
Couldn't look past your face into your eyes
I got hurt by the pain
Oh you wouldn't disagree
In a fatal embrace I would despise
Now I know it was only a dream
No, it never could last, it ran by so fast

Where are you now?
In dreams why do you weep?
Your tears, they never show
Because they're yours to keep
So never forget, no never regret

Now tell me if you can
What's the price of any man?

'Cause I'm missing you still
Like an unfinished symphony
Don't know how it will end, surely in tears
I'm not feeling the thrill
But thanks for the memory
It's a thing we can't mend, that's become clear
Now I know it was only a dream
No, it never could last, it ran by so fast

Unfamiliar you came
And there was no guarantee
Couldn't look past your face into your eyes
I got hurt by the pain
Oh you wouldn't disagree
In a fatal embrace I would despise
Now I know it was only a dream
No, it never could last, it ran by so fast

'Cause I'm missing you still
Like an unfinished symphony
Don't know how it will end, surely in tears
I'm not feeling the thrill
But thanks for the memory
It's a thing we can't mend, that's become clear
Now I know it was only a dream
No, it never could last, it ran by so fast


6. THE LAST FRONTIER

No peace on Earth yet before the dawn
One hundred priests say a prayer
In expectation they stand withdrawn
And all their promises laid bare

Now on a Monday, bright early morning
They run for the only train

Then every bell that ever rang
On England's warm sunny days
And every bird that ever sang
And every brass band that played
The sound of kids on village greens
The giant horse caravan
The market stalls and steam machines
Would stir the heart of every man

Between the pages wild flowers were pressed
Until one day they'd be found
No explanation, they'd all been blessed
And then it all came round

Time and the jealous eyes will be looking
Back to a better place

When every door's laid open wide
It's not so rich but it's true
That anyone can step inside
It's been so long overdue
This fairytale will draw you near
And give you back the age of man
A shining star, the last frontier
Will take you back where you began
Going somewhere
I'll keep waiting so long

Then every bell that ever rang
On England's warm sunny days
And every bird that ever sang
And every brass band that played
The sound of kids on village greens
The giant horse caravan
The market stalls and steam machines
Would stir the heart of every man


7. FREEDOM DAY

Listen to me, liberty denied
Searching into the deep, looking far and wide
Endless talking, nothing much to hide
No sense asking the way, no one on your side

Don't look back, when your life's an empty page
Keep on track, don't get filled with rage
So take it somewhere, living your life, breathing in the Air

Sing for the human race, louder than oceans roar
Sing till your voices break, till you can't sing no more
Dark thoughts will fly, into the clouds passing us by
Shout for your freedom yell and they will hear the chorus
Bang on your freedom bell, they wouldn't dare ignore us
Into the flame, out of the earth, nothing shall remain

Cold wind blowing, one and twenty lies
Healers healing, the truth with sympathetic eyes
Rainbows over, naked and exposed
Midnight, lost in the dark, paradise is closed

Don't look back, when your life's an empty page
Keep on track, don't get filled with rage
So take it somewhere, living your life, breathing in the Air

Sing for the human race, louder than oceans roar
Sing till your voices break, till you can't sing no more
Dark thoughts will fly, into the clouds passing us by
Shout for your freedom yell and they will hear the chorus
Bang on your freedom bell, they wouldn't dare ignore us
Into the flame, out of the earth, nothing shall remain

Sing for the human race, louder than oceans roar
Sing till your voices break, till you can't sing no more
Dark thoughts will fly, into the clouds passing us by
Shout for your freedom yell and they will hear the chorus
Bang on your freedom bell, they wouldn't dare ignore us
Into the flame, out of the earth, nothing shall remain


8. MOTHER NATURE'S FINAL DANCE

Oh why do we act like this?
So fragile to touch
Now that the light's gone out
They're caught in the rush
And somewhere across the void
Oh there's no return
Lost all in an empty space
There's cause for concern

Women were crying in their tearful eyes
And banners were flying in dark smoky skies
Sweet ruby wine only helped them ignore
It poured from the bottle like blood to the floor
The peace and the power will fall dust to dust
And every hour will turn them to rust

Still some things we're haunted by
And endlessly tried
But if we could start again
And question them why
Now you can remember when
Kids held out their hands
All prejudice left behind
Time to understand

Men talked with passion, although time was brief
And something would happen to shake their belief
Gentle persuasion, a soft serenade
It filled the occasion and everyone prayed
Get back in the shadows, say farewell to friends
On through the meadows, too late to pretend

It starts, Mother Nature cries
She falls into her final dance
People were just walking by
Passing without half a glance
So into the shadows burning
Wide-eyed and so young they came
And all but their very soul
Swept into that savage game

Through fire and water, they try to be strong
And not to be touched by that poisonous tongue
The men on white horses, observing their plan
Were deep in discussion, send man after man
Over and over and over again
Over and over, it's over, Amen


9. MIDNIGHT KINGS

Stayed up all night
Talking about schemes
That was the thing
It turned on the light
Made up our dreams
Like midnight kings

Golden days but the sun's going down
Evening comes and there's no one around

Kept running all night to get away
Lost in the moonlight, knelt down to pray
No conversation, no black or white
There's no salvation comes overnight

Traded our life
Right for the time
All we could bring
It's not too late
Look where we are
We're midnight kings

Couldn't stay but I'm still feeling fine
What a day and I'm ready to shine

Kept running all night to get away
Lost in the moonlight, knelt down to pray
No conversation, no black or white
There's no salvation comes overnight

Kept running all night to get away
Lost in the moonlight, knelt down to pray
No conversation, no black or white
There's no salvation comes overnight

Kept running all night to get away
Lost in the moonlight, knelt down to pray
No conversation, no black or white
There's no salvation comes overnight


10. TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT

Whatever happened to you?
It’s been so long
I thought it seemed peculiar
Did it go wrong?
It’s strange
But then what do we know?
Whatever happened to you?
Where did you go?

Tonight’s the night
Everyone’s been waiting for
We won’t fight
Not any more
Tonight’s the night
Somebody opened the door
Turned on the light
We can’t ignore

Whatever happened to you?
It’s been a while
Your journey’s overflowing
The longest mile
It’s strange
But then you can’t back down
Whatever happened to you?
You’ve been around

Tonight’s the night
Everyone’s been waiting for
We won’t fight
Not any more
Tonight’s the night
Somebody opened the door
Turned on the light
We can’t ignore

Remember
Remember
Remember
Never grow cold
Remember
Remember
Remember
Never grow old

Tonight’s the night
Everyone’s been waiting for
We won’t fight
Not any more
Tonight’s the night
Somebody opened the door
Turned on the light
We can’t ignore

Tonight’s the night
Everyone’s been waiting for
We won’t fight
Not any more
Tonight’s the night
Somebody opened the door
Turned on the light
We can’t ignore
