1. WORLD ON FIRE

Well, they say that we are tragic
And they say we're born to lose
You're the misfit, I'm the sinner
You're the eve and I'm the fool
But, today, you'll be the master or the slave
It's up to you
Or my beautiful disaster
Take me any way you choose

Don't fight it
Ignite it
There's much ashore...

I think it's time you set this world on fire
(This world on fire)
I think it's time you push it to the edge
(To the edge)
Burn it to the ground and trip the wire
(Just trip the wire)
It may never be this good again

It's like a new religion
Speak in tongues, come see the light
Do not trip on inhibitions that will only waste my time
Let me tempt you with the evils of the flesh and so much more
Like a Babylon redeemer
Like a pusher, like a whore

Just try it
You'll like it
I'll give you more...

I think it's time you set this world on fire
(This world on fire)
I think it's time you push it to the edge
(To the edge)
Burn it to the ground and trip the wire
(Just trip the wire)
It may never be this good again

It's so dark, I can't see
All the truth inside us
All I want is to feel something that's real before the end...

Close the door
Turn the key
Do you like what you see?
Kill the lights
Oh, come to me
Set it off tonight
Baby, just set fire to gasoline...

I think it's time you set this world on fire
(This world on fire)
I think it's time you push it to the edge
(To the edge)
I'm so fucking bored so trip the wire
(Just trip the wire)
It may never be this good again

Just trip the wire
(Just trip the wire)
This world's on fire
(This world's on fire)
Just trip the wire
(Just trip the wire)

It may never be this good again...


2. SHADOW LIFE

A shadow life will only break your heart
It steals the light and tears a soul apart
Like a shadow in the dark

I know you're living in a shadow life
Better watch your step
Should you stumble, you're gonna fall

'Cause daddy's secret are the killing kind
Rope around your neck
It's a wonder you breathe at all

You turn a blind eye and I hold on
You're the fool, will it ever change?
How can't you ever see?

The shadow life will only break your heart
(Like I said before)
It steals the light and tears a soul apart
Like a shadow in the dark

I can feel it when you're under me
There is something else
There is something I can't let go

Never silenced to the misery
Feel it in your sex
Tear it down
Now we're all alone

And still you just deny it all
(But I can't take this anymore)
But I can turn away

The shadow life will only break your heart
(Like I said before)
It steals the light and tears a soul apart
Like a shadow in the dark

It's coming, it's coming
It hurts as it tears us apart
Just like a shadow in the dark

(You're a shadow in the dark)

The shadow life will only break your heart
(Like I said before)
It steals the light and tears a soul apart
Like a shadow in the dark
I feel it when you're under me
There's a dirty secret to this misery, yeah
The shadow life will only break your heart
Like a shadow in the dark
(Like a shadow in the dark)
(You're a shadow in the dark)


3. AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE

My baby's high, she's in overdrive
She's a fiend out on the floor
She's a shot of hate
She's a drop dead paramour

She comes around and she turns it up
Her disease I can't ignore
Puts it to the red
Like I've never seen before

But it's all right
Baby's automatic, she's in overdrive
Rollin' all night
Never slowing down until she sees the light

She always says that she's sick and tired
Of the pressure and the pain
Bearing down on her
Like a ten ton suicide

How many times I tell her
If she keeps running at this pace
She'll be long run out
Before she can ever reach the light

But it's all right
Baby's automatic, she's in overdrive
Rollin' all night
Never slowing down until she sees the light

She's running free
She's running hard
That's all she needs to reach the top

She's so obscene
She's all I've got
My motor queen don't ever stop
Oh I wanna do it again

(Oh I wanna do it again)

Cause it's all right
Baby's automatic, she's in overdrive
Rollin' all night
Never slowing down until she sees the light

But it's all right
Baby's automatic, she's in overdrive
Rollin' all night
Never slowing down until she sees the light

She ain't slowin' down till she scores tonight


4. WICKED STONE

Last night in paradise
I can feel it down in my bones
Left the good all behind
Now I die on the vine
Waiting for my redemption song

I am never safe
Just a walking bomb
In a midnight rage
Then I'm gone

I'm getting off this wicked stone
'Cause I can't say
And I can't deny
That all I want is lost
No I can't face
Another night on this wicked stone

I rolled and tumbled down
And I curse 'till the morning light
From the mountain I fell
To the depths of hell
I was distant and born to find

Once a rolling stone
Now a falling star
Was so close to home
Now so far

I'm getting off this wicked stone
'Cause I can't say
And I can't deny
That all I want is lost
No I can't face
Another night on this wicked stone

You might say I'm good for nothing
I might say that you are right yeah
Can I crawl away from this ball and chain?
It's got me tethered to a world of pain
I'm digging my own grave this time
On this wicked stone tonight!

I'm getting off this wicked stone
(I'm getting off ; this wicked stone)
'Cause I can't stay (cannot stay)
And I cannot deny that all I want (all I want)
All I want is lost (it's gone forever)
No I can't face (cannot face yeah)
Another night on this wicked stone

Say yeah!
This wicked stone!
Let me say yeah-yeah-yeah
Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah
Oh-oh
Another night on this wicked stone
Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah
Hey-yeah-yeah-yeah-ohh


5. 30 YEARS TO LIFE

So the story goes
This is a tale that must be told
For what could be your destiny
You never know

I never meant to be here
I never even tried
But until you know when you’re lost and down
You’ll come to trouble in time
It was a cold December
I wept day and night
In a steel-toed rage, made a big mistake
Now I’ll be doing time

I was running with the order
I was running out of time
Now for me there is no quarter
I don’t wanna be here
I don’t wanna die

Serving 30 years to life
What I did, I can’t deny
Now the sorrow in my heart will never fade
I remember it so well
But now I’m sat here bored to hell
Lord, I’m sorry for the error of my ways

They sent me on a mission
Out to earn my stripes
Should’ve known damn well when the kerbstone fell
Things would never be right

I was running with the order
I was running out of time
Now for me there is no quarter
I don’t wanna be here
I’m really not surprised

Serving 30 years to life
What I did, I can’t deny
Now the sorrow in my heart will never fade
I remember it so well
But now I’m sat here bored to hell
Lord, I’m sorry for the error of my ways

‘Cause now I know, now I know
I was wrong and I can’t let this go
I know, now I know
I am sorry, what a wretched soul
Oh, what a big mistake

Now I’m growing old
18 years I’ve got to go
I waste way in this cage
I’m all alone
That’s how the story goes
This is a tale that must be told
For what could be your destiny
You never know

‘Cause when you’re running with the order
You’re only running out of time
Now for me there is no quarter
I didn’t wanna be here
I don’t wanna die

Serving 30 years to life
What I did, I can’t deny
Now the sorrow in my heart will never fade
I remember it all went well
But it’s too late to save myself
Lord, I'm sorry for the error of my ways

So the story goes
This is a tale that must be told
For the sorrow in my heart will never fade
So the story goes
This is a tale that must be told
Yes, I’m sorry for the error of my ways


6. BENT TO FLY

Mama, don't you cry
Don't you worry
I cannot stay here any longer
The time has come to find a distant calling
That only seems to get much stronger

And, I know it's hard
To see the one you come to lean on make his way
Far beyond the world but I can't stay

I won't stop running
I'm only getting closer
To getting off the ground this time
The sky is calling, the wind is at my shoulders
Won't let this chance pass me by
Mama, I'm bent to fly

Remember yesterday
Before the storm
Before the innocence was lost
I promised I would stay forever more
But, every boy, in time moves on

Your wounds will heal someday
This I know, but I am restless and so torn
Mama, I can't stay here any more

I won't stop running
I'm only getting closer
To getting off the ground this time
The sky is calling, the wind is at my shoulders
Won't let this chance pass me by
Mama, I'm bent to fly

I can feel it coming
A perfect storm is rising
Gotta say my last goodbye...

(Mama, I'm bent to fly...)

Mama, don't you cry
Don't you worry
I cannot stay here any longer

I won't stop running
I'm only getting closer
To getting off the ground this time
The sky is calling, the wind is at my shoulders
Won't let this chance pass me by
Mama, I'm bent to fly, ohhhh

Mama, I'm bent to fly

Yeeeaah...

I can feel it coming
A perfect storm is rising
I gotta say my last goodbye...


7. STONE BLIND

Stone blind
In the dark
Vision of beauty with an ugly heart
Stone blind
To everything about her

She pulled the wool over my eyes
But the last nail in my coffin robbed me blind
It's the truth I can't deny
Oh it feeds off good intentions
As you beg for second sights

She's got me
Stone blind
In the dark
Vision of beauty with an ugly heart
Stone blind
To everything about her

She always comes on way too strong
And the world fills up with fire when she's gone
My double talking debutante
In a hustle she will own you
Until she gets all that she wants

She's got me
Stone blind
In the dark
Vision of beauty with an ugly heart
Stone blind
To everything about her

She's such a wicked thing
And though I've seen it all before
I'm in the dark again
The woman's gone away

Stone blind
In the dark
Vision of beauty with an ugly heart
Stone blind
To everything about her
About her

She's got me
Stone blind
In the dark
Vision of beauty with an ugly heart
Stone blind
To everything about her

Stone blind (She pulled the wool over my eyes)
Stone blind (She shot me down and robbed me blind)
Stone blind (And now I'm begging her for second sights)
She's got me stone blind


8. TOO FAR GONE

A kingdom lost
A ransom paid
A dying wish you got your way

Your foolish pride
A bitter age
Brought to dust
And laid to waste
Your empire lost
But nothing gained
How could you let it fall

Now it’s all been decided
There is nothing you can do
You’re too far gone
But its always the same old song
There ain’t nothing left to prove
You’re too far gone

Burn your bridges to the ground
Throw your tantrums
Scream out loud oh
Play the martyr
Play the fool
Tell the world it wasn’t you
Who pulled the trigger in the end
Like you know you always do

‘Cause it’s all been decided
There is nothing you can do
You’re too far gone
But its always the same old song
There ain’t nothing left to prove
You’re too far gone

A kingdom lost
A ransom paid
A dying wish you got your way
A kingdom lost
A ransom paid
Now you can see that you’re to blame

You’re too far gone
You’re too far gone
Yeah too far gone


9. BENEATH THE SAVAGE SUN

It was a blood-red summer
One I can’t forget
When you took the one thing
All in this world I had left

For I will remember
Until the end of time
If it takes forever
Retribution will be mine

This I know
In the end
But I wanted you to know
That I wont forget
No

In the field you hear us crying
For the ones we lost and loved
Underneath the savage sun

How many killing seasons
Can you justify?
How many dead and bleeding
Only for an Ivory lie?

Was it for the money?
Was it for the thrill?
If I had my way
Yours would be the blood I’d spill

But I wont
Not today
Because revenge is best served cold
This I know
So I wait
Oh

In the field you hear us crying
For the ones we lost and loved
Cause the evil never stops
So we keep dying
Underneath the savage sun
Underneath the savage sun

How many bleeding?
And how many die?
All for the greed of an Ivory lie
When will they see what they’ve done is a lie
Blood that they spill could not be justified
How many bleeding?
And how many die?
Blood that they spill could not be justified


10. WITHERED DELILAH

You are the clown for what you are
You had to break out every trick you could pull
But there comes a time when everything must turn off

Back to the start again
Back to the place where you come from

Stuck out of view
My withered delilah
You know it's true that no one cares anymore
Stuck out of view
You had your time
But now your moment is all but gone

Oh it's gone

Lost in a daze
What have you done?
Diggin' a grave to be your own
You're soon to fade
But just too blind to let go
Of what you had
And what you were
Irrelevance hurts but you're not alone

Stuck out of view
My withered delilah
You know it's true that no one cares anymore
Stuck out of view
You had your time
But now your moment is all but gone

So pack your diamond rings
All your pretty things
And just move along
'Cause there's always somebody else to replace you
When you are gone

(When you are gone, Hey yeah)

Stuck out of view
My withered delilah
You know it's true that no one cares anymore
Stuck out of view
You had your time
But now your moment is all but gone
(x2)

The moment is all but gone
The moment is all but gone
Oh it's gone


11. BATTLEGROUND

One more shot across the bow
One more bullet through the heart
You've got me bleeding on the ground
I got you wounded in the dark
Why do we always take this way too far

Surrender tonight this time save tomorrow
Mama don't you let me down
The broken alliance
Leaves me so hollow
And wondering how

Did the bed that we made
Become our battleground

When the damage has been done
I know you hurt so don't pretend
Where we're used to making love
Now we're making war instead
Before it's too late
Lay your arms down let me in

Surrender tonight this time save tomorrow
Mama don't you let me down
This broken alliance
Leaves me so hollow
And wondering how

Did the bed that we made
Become our battleground

Just hold your fire
Long enough to see
This ain't how it's supposed to be

Once all that we've got is lost
The walls will fall
Please don't let them fall on me

Ohhhhh

I wanna lay you down
Surrender all the sorrow (the sorrow)
Wanna lay you down
Surrender till it's gone

I wanna lay you down
Surrender to tomorrow (tomorrow)
Wanna lay you down
Surrender till it's gone
Yeah

(Lalalas)
Just surrender till it's gone
Just surrender till it's gone
[Vocalizing]

(Lalalas)
I don't wanna fight no more
Say [vocalizing]
I can feel it all there
I wanna tell right just then and there oh
Say yeah
Say yeah

I don't wanna fight this battle anymore.


12. DIRTY GIRL

I can't wait to see it
You just don't believe it
The things she does

There may never be two ways about it
Everything she do just turns me on
Anything I need she gonna find it
Boy it; well I know it don't belong

13. IRIS OF THE STORM

I wanna set into the calm
Where the skies are blue
Are never gone
But the rain keeps coming down
Tell me will it ever stop?
These waters rage but I stay strong

Into the Iris of the Storm
Rising full with the tide
Carry On

Sometimes it's hard to find my place
To face those fears that all most face
But I keep on holdin' on
I wont let this take me down
I'll risk it all to find my way

Into the Iris of the Storm
Rising full with the tide
Carry On

'Cause there will come a day
I know it wont be long
I'm gonna prove to the world that I belong

No more hurting
Skies are breaking
The tide is turning
I can feel it changing

Into the Iris of the Storm
Show the world that I was right all along


14. AVALON

Through the miles
I cannot escape
My fate I know will come in time
With my back to the wind
I cheated again with a smile

Billowing up
The truth I cannot speak
But I made it back one last time

Avalon
It's been way too long
I can see in your eyes
The fire is all but gone

Tales untold
Never to know
Unspeakable until the end
All these mysteries
I'll never speak of again

That my love
I hope you believe
Now I'm gonna give you every part of me
I am home

Avalon
It's been way too long
I can see in your eyes
The fire is all but gone

But please keep holding on
Stay tonight
I need your love
And don't say goodbye
My sweet Avalon

Oh Avalon
It's been way too long
I can see in your eyes
The fire is all but gone

My sweet Avalon
It's been way too long
Avalon it's been way too long
Avalon


15. THE DISSIDENT

And it's not that I'm afraid to die
I stand up for my own
There is something that I can't deny
Deep within my soul
Don't believe at all
In what we're fighting for
And I can see that we were wrong

And all the bombs keep fallin' in the dead of the night
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I guess I never stopped believing that love can survive
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Father said it's time to be a man
To serve for what you know
But my father does not understand
My conscience won't let go
Don't believe at all
In what we're dying for
And now I can see that we were wrong

And all the bombs keep fallin' in the dead of the night
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I guess I never stopped believing that love can survive
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Wanna turn away
Wanna turn and walk away
Just leave it all
'Cause it's not my place
No it's not a place to stay

And all the bombs keep fallin' in the dead of the night
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I guess I never stopped believing that love can survive
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

And all the bombs keep fallin' in the dead of the night
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I guess I never stopped believing that love can survive
I'm singin'
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I'm not afraid to die
I stand for my own
Oh
But I can't deny
That we are so wrong
Oh


16. SAFARI INN

(Instrumental)


17. THE UNHOLY

Evil shadows they are falling
And the misty-eyed are calling
To a god so far
People, troubled times are coming
Still you wonder why I’m running
I will take no part

[Evil:]
(I know it was you this time;
I know it was you this time;
I’ve seen it with my own two eyes;
you lie, you lie)

[Chorus:]
Unholy so vile
How can you justify a lie?
One more sacred alibi
Concealing your crimes
Until the end of time
Oh why
It’s you that should be crucified

Echoes of your true intentions
Well I guess you failed to mention
What was in your heart
Now I say it all so clearly
What you did to them has nearly
Torn us all apart

[Evil:]
(I know it was you this time;
I know it was you this time;
I’ve seen it with my own two eyes;
took them like a sacrifice;
you lie, you lie)

[Chorus]

You say on your knees that you don’t believe now
Don’t question a thing at all
Just receive what you’re meant to see
Now fall
On your knees

Evil shadow they are falling
And the misty-eyed are calling
You will break their heart

[Chorus]

The broken how they cry
They only gave you heart and mind
How can you justify?
They loved you
Now father don’t deny
You took them like a sacrifice
We finally know the truth about you
Oh yeah

You’re unholy
So vile
How can you justify?
Oh my, how they loved you
Oh yeah
Concealing your crimes
But now they’ll see this time
The blind will deny you
