2. LOVE HUNGRY

You come knocking on my door
Looking like a promise of what's in store
Breezing in, how come so late?
Dress in a mess, hair in a state
Have mercy baby, you're putting this poor boy down
It ain't no good honey when you ain't around

Keep me dancing on a string
Driving me crazy for your lovin' thing
Then you turn off like I don't exist
Is there somebody new at the top of your list?
Have mercy baby, you're putting this poor boy down
It ain't no good honey when you ain't around.

Love hungry, love hungry, hungry for love [x2]

Keep me dancing on a string
Driving me crazy for your loving thing
Then you turn off like I don't exist
Well is there somebody new at the top of your list?
Have mercy baby, you're putting this poor boy down
It ain't no good, it ain't no good, ain't no, ain't no, ain't no good

Love hungry, love hungry, hungry for love [x2]


3. BURNING UP

In the darkness of the night
When the moon above is shining bright
When the fire starts to rise
Will you show me paradise?

Burning hunger for your love
Will you touch me 'till I can't hold on?
Will you take me deep inside
Through the endless night to light?

[Chorus:]
Feel I'm burning, burning up
I'm on fire every time we touch
Feel I'm burning, burning up
I'm on fire, I'm burning up

I am just a working man
Trying hard to do the best I can
Girl the loving that you bring
Make a working man a king

[Chorus x2]


4. THE FIGHT GOES ON

Billy was a young man shot down in his prime
Jenny was the girl that Billy left behind
Lying in an alleyway, blood pouring down the drain
One for the cause, another link in the chain

Sad hollow faces lay Billy in the ground
Hearts full of hatred, the killers must be found
Eye for an eye now means two lives for one
There's only one way if you live by the gun

[Chorus:]
And the fight goes on, battle to survive
And the fight goes on only heroes die
They only die

Listen to the wind call vengeance on the streets tonight
Voices in the shadow drowned by a burst from an armelite
Heaven's full of heroes - loyal to the end
How many lives will it take to the bitter end, my friend?

[Chorus]


5. DON'T GET MAD, GET EVEN

When all around you seem against you
You're a square peg in a round hole
Somebody trying to rope and fence you
Here's a bit of advice you should know
When I'm starting to boil - going out of my head
I remember the words my daddy said

[Chorus:]
Don't get mad - get even. It's the only game in town
Don't get mad - get even. Can't keep a good man
Keep a good man down
Down to the ground

When a lady tries to teach a lesson
Trying hard to make you look a fool
Shucking 'n' jiving an' messing
Try and remember - remember this rule
If you're getting tired of being a joke
Don't get all fired up - you're starting to choke

[Chorus]

Don't get mad - get even. It's the only game in town
Don't get mad - get even. Can't keep a good man
Keep a good man down
Can't keep him down

Don't play fair - play dirty
Where there's a will there's a way
Don't give in - don't show mercy
Every dog - every dog - every dog must have its day

Don't get mad - get even - don't get mad - get even [x2]
Get mad - get mad..........


6. INTO THE VALLEY

How much more can one man take
How many times can one heart break
Dark days left out in the cold

Taken for suckers, played for fools
Under submission we follow the rules
How long can one man carry that load?

[Chorus:]
Out on the streets young hearts running free
Fighting for you, calling to me
Into the valley, tear is the key
Nothing can stop young hearts - running free

Grind us down one by one
Hide the truth behind the gun
How much? How much can we stand?

Blinded with science, choked with lies
Can't see the wood for the wool in our eyes
Can't stand the blood upon our hands

Out on the streets young hearts running free
Fighting for you, calling to me
Into the valley, fear is the key
Nothing can stop young hearts - running free

How much more can one man take?
How many times can one heart break?
Dark days left out in the cold

Taken for suckers, played for fools
Oh yeah we follow those rules
How long can one man carry that had?

[Chorus]

Young hearts - running free - young hearts - running free - running free
running free (Yeah) - running free - running free - running free
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)


7. BITE ON THE BULLET

Oh, yeah

Don't shoot until you can see the whites of their eyes
Somehow you've got to douse the flame
Don't give up if the end ain't in sight
No matter how much pain

Take the bit between your teeth
Sink them into the lead
Gotta feel those nerves of steel
Ain't no point in playing dead
Gotta feel those nerves of steel
Ain't no point in playing dead

You gotta bite on the bullet, bite on the bullet real hard
Bite on the bullet, bite on the bullet real hard

You're gonna hurt unless you follow this rule
There's not much more you can do
Moving in for the kill, no suicide pill
It's the hard way out for you.

Put all other thoughts out of your mind
Somehow you gotta concentrate
Where there's a will, there's a way, so I'm told
So don't let your will break
Where there's a will, there's a way, so I'm told
So don't let your will break - no no

Bite on the bullet, bite on the bullet real hard [x4]

Bite on the bullet, bite on the bullet real hard
Bite on the bullet, bite it, you'll like it, bite it, you'll like it yeah

Where there's a will there is a way


8. DOCTOR ICE

Nerves of steel, a hand that never shakes
Iron will torture till you break
The time has come - you better run
The race is on to be number one

Doctor Ice [x2]

Senses chill as he comes to your place
Just a man - you'll never see his face
The time has come - you better run
The race is on from the lonely one

Doctor Ice [x4]

Feel his hands around your throat
Your breath is short - you begin to choke
Biting, fighting for your life
But you won't stop his grip of ice - good doctor

The time has come - so make a run

It's just begun - he's the lonely one
Doctor Ice Doctor Ice...
Come on now... Good God...

10. LEAVING LOVE (BEHIND)

I've been to hell and back getting you off my mind
You put me on my back when you walked out this time
And underlined the fact by seeing a friend of mine - a friend of mine

Leaving love behind
Tables turned this time
Leaving love behind
It ain't no use to me I'm a leaving love behind yeah

You didn't stop to think what you were doing to me
Losing you this time killed all the love in me
Now all I've got is some kind of used to be - some kind of used to be

Leaving love behind

Leaving love behind
