Rock Brigade
(Savage/Clark/Elliott)

Well in the middle of the night
And the early morning light
You can hear them a million miles away
They'll be bangin' on their drums
Bangin' on your door
Waving their flags telling you the score
Watch out for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Oh no it's the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Look out for the rock brigade
Leading you away, away
So when they hit your town
You'd better get down
I'm tellin' no lies to you mister
'Cos they live for rock'n'roll
They'll try to steal your soul
Might even try to steal your sister
Oh
Watch out for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Oh no it's the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Look out for the rock brigade
Leading you away, away, away
So in the middle of the night
Or the early morning light
If you hear them comin' your way
Well you'd better watch your step
Don't step out of line
'Cos here they come one more time
Watch out for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Oh no it's the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Look out for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
You better watch for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
I say watch for the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Keep your eyes on the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
Don't let your eyes off the rock brigade
(Rock brigade)
They'll be leading you away, away, awayback to top
Hello America
(Savage/Clark/Elliott)

Hello America, hello America
Hello America, Hello America
Well I'm takin' me a trip I'm going down to California
Yeah, I'm gonna try Hollywood and San Pedro Bay, yeah yeah

I'm gonna take you where the lights are bright
I'm gonna give you my love tonight
Hello America, hello America
Hello America, hello America
I'm gonna get me a greyhound bus down the motorway
I'm gonna spend a little time in 'Frisco and L.A., yeah yeah
But when it gets to twelve o'clock
And you feel that you gotta rock
You'd better let your hair hang down
So we can boogie all over town
Hello America, hello America

Won't you give me your love tonight

Sorrow Is A Woman
(Savage/Clark/Willis/Elliott)

Your always pretending to be
Someone who prefers to be free
You think you can fool me with your lying eyes
But what is this game that you play
When all that your trying to say
Is that your lonely, in need of a friend
Oh yeah, sorrow woman
I just can't seem to get to you
Oh yeah sorrow woman
If only you could see you as I do
And can't you see that it's true
There's someone as lonely as you
Trying so hard, so hard to get through
And why can't everyone see
The way that it really should be
Why hide your feelings and suffer the pain
Oh yeah, sorrow woman
I just can't seem to get to you
Oh yeah sorrow woman
If only you could see you as I do
You know that sorrow is a woman
You know that she'll make you feel sad
You know that sorrow is a woman
Oh yeah sorrow woman
I just can't seem to get to you
Oh yeah sorrow woman
If only you could see you as I doback to top
It Could Be You
(Willis/Elliott)

Who's the one to knock me over
Who's the one to take me by surprise
Who's the one who's out to get me
Who will share my fantasy tonight
It could be you
It could be me
It could be anyone
It could be you
It could be me
It could be you
It could be anyone
Do you really know the story?
Have you really come to see the band?
Can you reach out for the glory?
Can you feel the nearness of my hand?
It could be you
It could be me
It could be anyone
If you look a little harder
You can see we're really all the same
And if you look a little deeper
Can't you see it's really all a game?
It could be you
It could be me
It could be anyone
It could be you
It could be me
It could be you
It could be anyoneback to top
Satellite
(Savage/Clark/Willis/Elliott)

Midnight, bright light, shining from the sky
Circulating round the earth, trying to catch your eye
Lowdown, showdown, trying to break away
Stay on course feel the force, careful what you say
Whoah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah can't you feel that it's real?
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah set your sights on the satellite
Me and you, rendezvous, we've got to take the chance
I'm paralyzed, I'm hypnotized, I'm in some kinda trance
Hazy, crazy, this things lost control
It's got the power, it's got the strength to steal away your soul
Whoah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah can't you feel that it's real?
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah set your sights on the satellite
It's burning up the sky
It's burning up the sky
Yes it's burning, yes it's burning
Can't you see that it's burning?
Can't you see that it's burning?
It's burning up the sky
Can't you see that it's burning?
Midnight, bright light, shining from the sky
Circulating round the earth, trying to catch your eye
Lowdown, showdown, trying to break away
Stay on course feel the force, careful what you say
Whoah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah can't you feel that it's real?

When The Walls Came Tumbling Down
(Clark/Elliott/Smith)

On the first day of the first month
In some distant year
The whole sky froze golden
Some said it was the aftermath
Of the radium bomb
While others told of a final retribution
A terrible revenge of the gods
But we understood the grand finale
Fulfillment of a prophecy told many years before
So all that was left was:
All the women were captured and chained
And national suicide was proclaimed
And New America fell to the ground
And all the children lay crippled and lame
But all the nations came together
In fear of the thought of the end
No more would we fight in the streets
No courage had we to defend
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
A blinding light the sun had died
A new moon took its place
Tidal waves, and open graves the fate of the unhuman race
The city's heart no longer beats no pity have I left to lend
A sinner sits reciting Dylan its now that I welcome the end
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
(Down down down)

Wasted
(Clark/Elliott)

Well I've been lying awake all night
Just thinking of you
But a bottle of whiskey lies heavy obstructing my view
I've got a bottle of pills to give me my thrills
And I know that I'm leading a life that kills
(Wasted)
I've wasted my time
(Wasted)
I'm shooting a line
(Wasted)
I'm stuck in a hole
(Wasted)
I'm losing control
And I've been meaning to call, I've been wanting to phone
You see I don't like the thought of leaving you here alone
Well I've seen things down here that are fit for a queen
I've seen things down here that should never be seen
(Wasted)
I've wasted my money
(Wasted)
I've wasted you honey
(Wasted)
I'm out of my brain
(Wasted)
I'm going insane
I'm running in thin air
There's nothingness everywhere
I've gotta get out
(Won't you help me?)
I've gotta get out
(Won't you help me?)
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me get out?
I thought I saw you just the other day
But it couldn't be you 'cos you had nothing to say
'He's going away', they told all my friends
Well now I'll be stuck in here til the misery ends
(Wasted)
I've wasted my time
(Wasted)
I'm shooting a line
(Wasted)
I'm out of my head
(Wasted)
I wish I was deadback to top
Rocks Off
(Willis/Savage/Clark/Elliott)

Well we were gettin' ready just the other night
When a knock on the dressing room door
Gave way to a leather jacket little girl
Who we'd never ever seen before
In her red satin dress
And her high heeled shoes
She took us all by surprise
And when she asked us what we wanted to do
She said it with her eyes
Just getcha rocks off
Whoah
Well when we finally took the stage
There she was but she wasn't on her own
'Cos she'd brought some friends maybe 5 or 6
Yeah, she must have been on the phone
And when they started dancing and jumping around
Well we couldn't believe our eyes
'Cos they'd got the whole damn audience rockin'
And they'd got us paralyzed
Just getcha rocks off
Thank you
Goodnight

It Don't Matter
(Willis/Clark/Elliott)

Now in your big flash motor and your wild reputation
You're ready to hit the streets
Winking at the boys, yeah heading for the noise
Got the world at your feet
If leaving me for dead with a pistol at my head
Is your idea of how I'd feel
Well let me tell you honey 'fore you spend all of your money
I got my hands firmly on the wheel
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
Back street lover in the cold of the evening
Takes you to a place he knows
Says, it will be fine better make up your mind
You've cut it deep and now it shows
It's way past midnight and your travelling through the city
You're wondering what you should do
Well baby can't you see that you've had enough of me
And I've certainly had enough of you
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me
It don't matter
It don't matter
It don't matter to me

It don't matter to me

Answer To The Master
(Willis/Clark/Savage/Elliott)

When the night time unfolds
And the memories that you hold
Bring a light to your eyes
Though you know it's disguise
When the night turns to day
You turn around and say
Magic mirror please tell
Is this heaven or hell?
Answer to the master
Can you look to the sky?
Can you live through your lie?
Of the thoughts you can't trace
Which time can't erase
To a face on the wall
Do you often recall
What you said on the night
When the new full moon was rising?
Answer to the master
Oh yeah
When the night time unfolds
And the memories that you hold
Bring a light to your eyes
Though you know it's disguise
When the night turns to day
And you turn around and say
Magic mirror please tell
Is this heaven or hell?
Answer to the master

Overture
(Savage/Clark/Willis/Elliott)

And with this message
That I bring to you
A beacon of light
To see you through
For time is on our side
And a holy man
Does say to me
To always to be blind
And never to see
It's not the way he planned it
Oh no
The time has come to gather up your thoughts
For you have said your piece
The lords of light will change this land
>From famine into feast
The buildings that once stood tall
Have crumbled to the ground
The silver warriors who came in force
And nowhere to be found
Time is the essence the priests do say
To restore your faith in man
For the job you do and the role you play
Will help rebuild this land
Through empty streets and dusty fields
We'll fight for what we need
Protected by our swords and shields
We can replant the seed
The roads ahead are long and winding
On which the bandits thrive
But we have the power of finding
Illusion to keep us alive
So through the valleys and over the hills
We'll march and sing in rhyme
We'll fight until we lose our will
For essence is our time
The sun the moon
The darkened sky
The morning dew
Reflecting in my eye
The rising mist
The dampened earth
Are just reminders of what life's worth
Whoah yeah
Whoah yeah
Whoah yeah
And with this message
That I bring to you
A beacon of light
To see you through
For time is on our side
For time is the essence
