Life on the wire5:40
Through the morning mist I hear the jungle drum
Concrete hugs against the sky
Like a needle searching for the vein
It feels so cold
Wish I was high

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

No more waiting something had to give
And when it came a strange release
I never really knew if it was in my brain
Until the day I went too far

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other way

A stage door pass for friends
Amongst the garbage cans
Just old soldiers calling time
The smell of meths runs high
Across this stinking waste
Is it any place to die?

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other wayback to top
Hurricane4:48
Battles rage on city streets
Two tribes face to face
Sunsets high on riots shields
It's a no-goers place
The lines holding fast run run for cover
The heat's so intense into the night
Somebody said this couldn't happen
Not in our time, it can't happen here

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to last

A tidal wave rides the crowd
Incensing the mob
A sea of blue rushes in
It's a cavalry charge
Eyes fueled with hate stare through the darkness
A cry stirs the pack sensing the kill
We stood together for Queen and for Country
Something went wrong
We're divided in fear

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to last

Bloodshot sky in the morning rain
The battlefield sleeps
Only kids come out to play
In confused disbelief
Word quickly spreads to a man from the government
Promising everything money can buy
But he can't understand cause he wasn't born here
It takes more than words the truth runs much deeper

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to lastback to top
Breakout4:38
Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Head for the underground
Leave all the creatures to play
No-one ever goes there anymore
The rats on holiday
We can stay for a short while here
You're on of the privileged few
When it's over make up your own mind
What you wanna do

Now we're breaking with the past
Living dangerously once more
We're going across the line

Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Don't look back
There's nothing but
Builders dreams in sinking sand
Don't make waves for someone else
It's not the time to make a stand

See the lights in the distance
Gleaming pillars of steal
It's time to take off the new disguise
There's nothing left to fear
They'll be hiding till the battle dies down
There's so much depending on you
We dare not make a mistake at this level
We all have to get through

Now we're breaking with the past
Living dangerously once more
We're going across the line

Breakout
You know they're after us
Do you know how far we are?
Breakout
The dog are closing in
Soon we'll reach the breakers yard

Don't look back
There's nothing but
Builders dreams in sinking sand
Don't make waves for someone else
It's not the time to make a standback to top
Living in the shadow5:09
They stood together back in '86
Two old soldiers came in search of peace
They shared a vodka with their memories
Held hands and cried on Armistice
They were friend at last
It had taken seventy years
There was no more hate
Only hope behind their fears

Here we are living in the shadow
Guns can kill just like bows and arrows
If all the world laid down their arms tomorrow
Would there be peace?
No living in the shadow?

We can travel round the universe
But we can't live together side by side
Did we ever learn the lessons we were taught?
Still on bloodstained roads, we hear the thunder roar

Here we are living in the shadow
Guns can kill just like bows and arrows
If all the world laid down their arms tomorrow
Would there be peace?
No living in the shadow?

Stalingrad
Millions of ghosts are marching
Afghanistan
The marters march for glory
Vietnam
The GI's biggest nightmare
Lebanon
Religions bloody story

They still display their might in Red Square
Our missiles face towards the eastern block
I have a dream that all old soldiers
Spend their last days in a world of peace

They were friends at last
It has taken seventy years
There was no more hate
Only hope behind their fears

Here we are living in the shadow
Guns can kill just like bows and arrows
If all the world laid down their arms tomorrow
Would there be peace?
No living in the shadow?back to top
England's glory3:38
Churchill had a sign for it
Nelson lost an eye for it
Shakespeare wrote the words
We all salute you

The Beatles rocked the world with hits
Errol Flynn starred in it
Rolls Royce made the others sick
We're still making history

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

Drake he sank the Spanish ships
Her majesty reigns over it
Remember world cup sixty six
And dear Bobby Charlton
The Rockers and the Mods
Blackpool and its Tower
Morecamb and the wise
Sir Lawrence Olivier

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hour

Robin and his merry men
The hall of fame at No. 10
Guy Fawkes lit the Parliament
And went for the big one
Henry and his wives
Rupert is bear
Richard of the round
And Billy Smarts Circus

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hour

All the Hooray Henrys go to Oxford and Cambridge
While the working class build the motorways
The Royals choose their brides while they're out
Playing Polo but no-one gives a damn cause we like it that way

Maggie's kept the boys in place
Prince Charles grows a Monarch's face
Concorde roars and sets the pace, the reading of the Times
Tales of Sherlock Holmes, it's great to be British

Oh we ruled the waves
Oh we ruled the waves

All this is England's Glory
Lie back and think of all the things we've done
All this is England's Glory
No-one can take away our finest hourback to top
Standing in the shadow4:55
There's a shadow in the dark
A Surgeon with a rusty knife
There's a tiger in a cage
And he's waiting to be free
Oh don't go out there
Someone's moving in the dark
Wait until the coast is clear
Before you step into the scene
You have to know what is for real
Oh don't go out there

Standing in the shadow on the opening night
Waiting for the curtain, can't you feel the bright light?
Standing in the shadow, now there so much more
Gotta face the music make it last a lifetime

There's a cast of thousands
An army waiting in the wings
A ghost out on the balcony
The master's holding centre stage
Oh don't go out there
Feel the pounding in your heart
The tension of a waiting game
But when the memory catches fire
Even whores have dreams
Oh don't go out there

Standing in the shadow on the opening night
Waiting for the curtain, can't you feel the bright light?
Standing in the shadow, now there so much more
Gotta face the music make it last a lifetime

And in the still night a small boy cries
Hands a tremble for his mother's arms
Now there's no-one there
This is the moment his time has come
And through the trap door
He makes his break his journey has begun

Standing in the shadow on the opening night
Waiting for the curtain, can't you feel the bright light?
Standing in the shadow, now there so much more
Gotta face the music make it last a lifetime

Standing in the shadow on the opening night
Waiting for the curtain, can't you feel the bright light?
Standing in the shadow, now there so much more
Gotta face the music make it last a lifetimeback to top
Hollywood4:58
Hey you pretty boys and girls
D'ya really wanna make it?
I like the sexy ones
With the long blond curles
We'll supply the make-up
You don't need to know a thing about rock'n'roll
The record's already a hit
There's been a million sold

Straight out of Hollywood
Like all of our heroes
Straight out of Hollywood
We're going to the Rock Show
We're gonna take you all the way
Down Sunset Boulevard
We'll spare no extravagance
Straight out of Hollywood

Do you all wanna play some rock'n'roll?
Do you all wanna stand out in the light?
Who wants to drive a Cadillac?
Who wants to live in Beverly Hills?

Straight out of Hollywood
Like all of our heroes
Straight out of Hollywood
We're going to the Rock Show
We're gonna take you all the way
Down Sunset Boulevard
We'll spare no extravagance

The big chance5:37
I'm going out to blow some bread
Soak up the sun, get out of dept
I'm gonna see the world
I'll buy up time and send out gifts
We'll live in style be stinking rich
And hit the Vegas trail
And it's a racing cert
You know this one can't lose
Let it all ride on the red
I only need two draws
And one each way

This is the big chance of your life
This is the moment that you've waited for
This is the big time of your day
This is the payoff you've been searching for
So come on down
Come on down
You can win your dreams
You've nothing left to lose
Come on down
Come on down
It's waiting here we'll help you what to choose

You can't stop now it's all too close
Just one more try
This time I'll win
It's written in the stars
He knows the price
She's seen the cards
My luck is in
So spin the wheel
There's fortune waiting here
My number's coming up
A gypsy told me so
I'm odds on favourite everytime
I take my soma like a good boy should

This is the big chance of your life
This is the moment that you've waited for
This is the big time of your day
This is the payoff you've been searching for
So come on down
Come on down
You can win your dreams
You've nothing left to lose
Come on down
Come on down
It's waiting here we'll help you what to choose

Come on down
We're giving it all away
Caravans, fancy cars, gold toilet seats
And trips to Mars
Holidays, exotic tours, camel rides and German whores
Stocks and shares and teddy bears
Tokens for every shape and size
Free beer for a year
A video, a television, a compact disc
A face lift, a night out with the stars
American Express, the Orient Express
The government expects
Hey come on down
We're giving it all awayback to top
Through these eyes5:45
I can't believe it
Was it just a dream?
Or did I reach out
And stand inside a world of make believe?
Life moves slowly
Tracks worn thin with time
Millions homeless
Bellies swollen till they're barely still alive

Through these eyes
I can see clearly now
Through these eyes
I can see clearly now

The refugee stands on the highway
The wheels of fortune turn
And we all fall down
There's an actor in the White House
While the statesman waits with Ceasar's blade

We talk of Star Wars
Like some childrens game
We give them wheat to live
Sell the arms
Just to kill again
We have the know how
In a perfect world
We're at the crossroads
And the chance we have
May never come again

Through these eyes
I can see clearly now
Through these eyes
I can see clearly nowback to top
