Strength Of Steel
With the strength of steel
I'll show you how I feel
All the weak will kneel
For the strength of steel

Your mind begins to reel
With the strength of steel
Makes your blood congeal
I have nothing, nothing to conceal
For the strength of steel
For the strength of steel

Only power to reveal
With the strength of steel
And a love that's real
For the strength of steel
A metallic meal

With the strength of steel
And with my approved seal
With the strength of steel
To you I make, make my appeal
For the strength of steel
You've got to have a metallic meal
Just for the love and strength of steel
For the strength of steelback to top
Concrete Jungle
A shot in the dark
On a New York night
The dream of the hunter
And the doomed man's fright

Chorus:
Rock
Roar
In the land of the predator
Concrete jungle

Survival of the fittest
And the jungle's alive
The plight of the nigger
And the honkey jive

-Chorus-
Concrete jungle

The Lady's liberty
Is getting old
Prey for justice
Will our freedom be sold

-Chorus-
Concrete jungleback to top
9-2-5
Punch the clock
Don't be late
Wear a tie
Stand up straight
Labour for money
Money for rent
Paying the bills
Is how it's spent
Don't do this
Don't do that
The boss is rich
He's getting fat

9-2-5
I'll never survive
9-2-5

Speed it up
Keep working fast
Rules to break
Will this job last?
Don't do this
Don't do that
The union hates
A wildcat

-Chorus-

Out to lunch
Back at one
Cash the cheque
Weekend's fun
Sweep the floor
The hours go by
Can't wait till five
When it's time to fly
Don't do this
Don't do that
Call in sick
And never come back!

-Chorus-back to top
I Dreamed It Was The End Of The World
Am I living in a nightmare
Are these thoughts within my head
I don't know what the truth is
Am I alive or am I dead?

In sorrow
No Tomorrow
Dead silence

People on the sidewalk
Become shadows on the wall
The world has turned to cinders
The answer to Satan's call

Oh I thank God it's only a dream
Fantasy
It's only a dream
Awake with a scream

Chorus:
I dreamed it was the end of the world
The children of God had burned
I dreamed it was the end of the world
In the bowels of hell they churned

Onward Christian soldiers
Ashes in the dust
Dignity and honour
Gave way to greed and lust

Oh I thank God it's only a dream
Fantasy
It's only a dream
Awake with a scream

No one heeds the warning
No one sees the light
Forever till the morning
Escape from the endless night

In sorrow
No tomorrow
Dead silence
Wasted violence

-Chorus 2X-back to top
Flight Of The Bumble Beast
(instrumental)back to top
Cut Loose
The word is out
That rock is in
And everyone is banging heads again
You and your mates
You want it all
You take your place at the front of the concert hall
The house lights dim
The stage is set
You're gonna take all that you can get
All you can get

Chorus:
Let's go crazy
Let's go insane
Me and the boys are rockin out again
Cut loose
Everbody cut loose
Cut loose
Everbody cut loose

Turn it up
Start to grind
It's got the power to blow your mind
Raise a fist
Cuts through the air
Scream and yell, show me that you care
Show me you care

-Chorus-

Come feel the heat
And energy
Electric force sets your spirit free
Let it out
No holding back
Cutting loose, There's no turning back
No turning back

-Chorus-back to top
Mad Dog
Well I don't care if I lose my hair
I don't care if you strip me bare
I don't care if you think I'm sick
I'm just a mad dog doin' my trick

Chorus:
'Cause I'm a mad dog
A mad bad dog
I'm just a mad dog

Chasing cars or burying my bone
I'm a stray looking for a home
On the corner just hanging around
I'm a depraved, deranged flea-bitten hound

-Chorus 2X-

Ain't hydrophobic
No need to run
I'm just a mad dog
Having fun

-Chorus-

Looking for a bitch in heat
Begging for a doggy treat
You know my bark is worse than my bite
You'll hear me howling in the heat of the night

-Chorus-2X
Feel my bite
Oww!!!
-Chorus-
Oww!!!back to top
Straight Between The Eyes
Make out, watch out
That's what this is all about
Never get enough of it
Go down, look around
Tell me baby what you've found
Better get a hold of it
Unzip kinda hip
Babe I think I got your trip
You're trying to impress me
Look now saying "wow"
But you're gonna try somehow
Baby don't depress me

It's your big chance
Don't - don't blow it
You only get one try
Hit you straight between the eyes

Lipstick does the trick
Won't you give my friend a lick?
Ring around the collar
Squeeze tight, all your might
Can you make me feel alright?
Make me hoot and holler

You only get one try
Hit you straight between the eyes
Straight between the eyes
Lookout!

Got a morning tent, space for rent
This is how your time is spent
Sitting on a flagpole
So sweet in the sheets
Baby can you dig the beat
Pounding out a drum roll
Bang bang let it hang
I can't wait to tell the gang
All about you passion
What fun now I'm done
And I really got to run
You know it's all the fashion

It's your big chance
Don't - don't blow it
You only get one try
Hit you straight between the eyes
Straight between the eyes
Straight between the eyes
I'm gonna hit ya, hit ya, hit ya, hit ya
Straight between the eyesback to top
Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I can't look away from your Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I'm blind to the day from your Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I'm hypnotized by your Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes My soul cries for your Wild Eyes
Evil knows I fell
In your evil spell

Wild Eyes as blue as the skies they was Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes a wicked disguise they was Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes burnin' with fire Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes filled with desire your Wild Eyes
Let me rest awhile
Near your fiery smile

Wild Eyes I'm comin' to get you now Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I'm willin' to let you now Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I'm takin' you home with me Wild Eyes
Wild Eyes I've got to be alone with your Wild Eyes
Evil knows I fell
In your evil spell
I fell for your Wild Eyesback to top
Kiss Of Death
Night has fallen
And the darkness hides an evil one
Feel his presence
Ever lurking in the shadows there
You can't see him but he's near

Prowling danger
Gazing unseen through his blackened cloak
Features masked;He's poised to take your life
Cutting deep your flesh; His steely knife
Coldly steals your life

The Kiss of Death
Daylight dawning
A fallen victim waiting to be found
Badly bleeding
Screaming sirens, people gather round
It's too late to run in fear

The Kiss of Death
Death is near
The Kiss of Death
Shed a tearback to top
Paper General
Innocence
Strays
Freedom
Pays
On board computers malfunction and alter their course
Follow official procedure and answer with force
With force
With Force

Red Zone
Stop
Confused
Caught
Ground forces scramble embark on a murderous task
Shadowed from reason, curtained behind iron mask
Iron mask
Iron mask

Chorus:
Paper General
Printed laws
Paper General
Commie cause

Contact
Sight
Intercept
Flight
Improbable target assassins then contact the ground
Civilian airliner or not, Kremlin says "Shoot it down!"
"Shoot it down!"
"Shoot it down!"

Tragic
Waste
Hostile
Haste
In justification they say that they followed the book
State that they feel no remorse for the lives that they took
They took
They took

-Chorus 2X-back to top
