No more hell on earth6:50
Last night I went to sleep
And dreamed the strangest dream
I was a prisoner in a land I'd never seen
The heat was so unbearable
The day was black as night
And I heard my children's children screaming

You left it all to us
The oceans and the skies
You let it all decay
Before your very eyes
The judge and jury they have sentenced you to life
But that's not long enough
Cause life has passed you by

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change it

Out in the distance
I could hear a lost soul's cry
Waiting for relief to come
Left alone out on the wire
I saw the face of God
In a cradle as a child
He held the cross within his hands
A sword was in his side

He came a second time
But still was crucified
You never did believe
The one called Jesus Christ
You called yourself a Christian
But what about your faith?
You built your temples of desire
Upon the sacred place

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change it

A shelter in an underground
Strange symbols on the wall
A rat infested sewer
Like some relic from the war
You left it all to us, you left it all to us
These are the corridors of power
Where forever you shall walk

I searched the wastelands till
I found someone I knew
Then I finally realized
The nightmare had come true
The place where I was standing
Was the place where I was born
And my name was on the roll of honour
To the fallen of the third world war

You left it all to us
The oceans and the skies
You let it all decay
Before your very eyes
The judge and jury they have sentenced you to life
But that's not long enough
Cause life has passed you by

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change itback to top
New frontiers5:18
There's a gang who live for violence
On the streets of East L.A.
Survival is to fight or kill
If anything gets in their way
There's a girls from a land of plenty
Who always wanted more
Now she's found her true vocation
Working for the lord
There's a mother in a vacuum
In fact she's now divorced
She's the spirit of the sixties
Still waiting for tha call

And the leaders of the new frontiers
Turn their thoughts toward the sky
No acid rain more greener fields
And micro genetic births
And the leaders of the new frontiers
Sail their shpis toward the stars
In search of new horizons
The answer to it all

There's a child who cries of hunger
In a town that's got no name
He doesn't know he's born yet
But he's learnt to live with pain
In a city just for dreamers
Where the sign says "Sex for sale"
You can live out all your fantasies
Behind the windows without shame
And still we think of east and west
And still we're black and white
And while the poor still hate the rich
I guess we're always gonna fight

And the leaders of the new frontiers
Turn their thoughts toward the sky
No acid rain more greener fields
And micro genetic births
And the leaders of the new frontiers
Sail their shpis toward the stars
In search of new horizons
The answer to it all

There's a dickhead blowing money
Cause he's never had to work
While the homeless live in boxes
Eating garbage out the dirt
There's a world that stand united
Where once the madman reigned
It's a lesson to us all
The threat of war is too insane
And half the planet's starving
And that's a fact of life
Have we got used to all those pictures
That we can't tell wrong from right?

And the leaders of the new frontiers
Turn their thoughts toward the sky
No acid rain more greener fields
And micro genetic births
And the leaders of the new frontiers
Sail their shpis toward the stars
In search of new horizons
The answer to it allback to top
Hold on to the dream5:48
I feel the sun go down
As I watch you walk away
And I caught a breath of life
When you looked at me today
It's a feeling i don't know
What I miss well who can say?
But every road leads back to you
You got a hold on me
Can I turn and let you go?
Can I really give up now?
There's a force that drives me on

I gotta have your love
Gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it's only love
It's everything I ever need
When i think of love
I gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it feels like love
You're everything I ever need

I'm at this point in time
A crossroads in my life
So close and yet so far
Am I wrong or am I right?
Decisions are the hardest part
They're the things I never made
We always seem to work it out
We always found a way
Now I'm caught between two worlds
It's the one thing we can't share
You're asking me to make a choice

I gotta have your love
Gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it's only love
It's everything I ever need
When i think of love
I gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it feels like love
You're everything I ever need

They say you never missed
What you've never had
But when you've got it all
Sometimes it's sad
To think that we can't find
Another way to compromise
But now we can't pretend
Cause that's just another lie

I gotta have your love
Gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it's only love
It's everything I ever need
When i think of love
I gotta hold on to the dream
Yes it feels like love
You're everything I ever needback to top
The lion's share5:00
Strike up the band
Break out the bar
Let'em know we're back in business this time
Don't be a fool
Can't you see I was kicked when I was down
Got nerves of steel
My memory's long and I've learned to be
The hunter not the hunted
I want the best that money can buy
Gotta have the sweet smell of success
So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

I'm sick and tired of playing second best
But now I don't look back anymore
I've served my time
I've paid my debt
And tonight I'm gonna ride out in the sunset
I've been around I know where it hurts
You see action speaks louder than words
Just start me up give me the power
And I feel just like a jet on the runway

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

You can spend all your life beeing somebody's fool
Or sell your soul and go break every rule
You know there's no money in honesty
But I tell you son, you've gotta be what you'll be

Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

Hey mr Big watch your cigar I'm gonna stick
My nose in your business
I've seen the light that shines in the dark
I've seen my destiny written in the stars
So stand your ground it's face to face
And prepare yourself for a showdown
The game is up the pack's at your heels
And there's nothing left for the loser

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's shareback to top
Eastern sunset8:21
There's a convoy of eastern dinkies
Flies on the wall of death
Caught in a crazy time warp
Trubs, Mercedes what's next?
Stretched out to the distant horizon
Gypsies in search of a dream
Driven on through the snow and the cold wind
Hypnotized by the things that they'd seen

And the fire burns bright
So bright in their eyes
While the past it cuts deep
In all of our lives
And the face of a child
Tells its own special tale
As she looks for the west
Where her future unveils

There's an eastern sunset
At the border of life
And we've travelled so far
Like wings through the night
There's an eastern sunset
See the coming of age
It's a memory we'll keep
In a lifetime of change

There's an army of brothers and sisters
Forty years in the wilderness
Marching the road to freedom
As the darkness descends at the frontier
The crowd gather just for the feast
And we make our way to the footlights
As the sound of a thousand hearts beat

And the fire burns bright
So bright in their eyes
While the past it cuts deep
In all of our lives
And the face of a child
Tells its own special tale
As she looks for the west
Where her future unveils

There's an eastern sunset
At the border of life
And we've travelled so far
Like wings through the night
There's an eastern sunset
See the coming of age
It's a memory we'll keep
In a lifetime of change

Stop the show cvame the call from Mike
Won't somebody call the cops
Let the ambulance through
There's a life at stake
Not a minute to be lost
The wounded is taken away
He's winning his fight for life
The crowd settle down
To the gig once more
As the evening reaches a high
We leave the stage to the shouts for more
But what more does tonight have in store
It feels like we travelled half way
Round the world, but never left home at all

There's an eastern sunset
At the border of life
And we've travelled so far
Like wings through the night
There's an eastern sunset
See the coming of age
It's a memory we'll keep
In a lifetime of changeback to top
Barons of darkness7:10
Somewhere in the dark someone is waiting
A boy of seventeen his body breaking
It's a one way trip there's no turning back
Pusher on the street he's a hungry bloodhound
Assassin getting rich in the devil's playground
It's too high a price what a sacrifice
The men of evil hide behind their fortress walls
While the dealers worm their way inside the law

Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Show your face what expression lies behind your greed?
Show your face to the addicts killing for their need

Shiny limousines up-town operators
Billion dollar deals and million dollar babies
Selling paradise at any price
Shipment in the night, secret destinations
Army on the move there's a fortune waiting
At the end of the line, if they cut it fine
In a world of flashing lights and suicide
They go looking for their kicks on the murder mile

Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Show your face what expression lies behind your greed?
Show your face to the addicts killing for their need
Show your face what expression lies behind your greed?
Show your face to the addicts killing for their need
Your bloody rule of fear will one day be all over
Your bloody rule of fear is gone, gone, gone, gone

Starting in the face of revolution
Walking hand in hand with destitution
Columbia, oh Columbia
Riding on the back of a starving nation
Reaping the harvest of eternal damnation
Too high a price what a sacrifice
The men of evil hide behind their fortress walls
While the dealers worm their way inside the law

Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Barons of darkness we won't take no more
Show your face what expression lies behind your greed?
Show your face to the addicts killing for their needback to top
Ivory towers6:15
I remember yesterday
The circus came to town
The gentle giant's toppen the bill
Supporting were the clowns
I remember Africa
Where millions all roamed free
And little kids drew pictures
Only innocence could see

Oh how we've grown since those
Crazy childhood days
All the mountains that were climbed
And the journeys that were made
Tell me did we change the world?

Will we still live in our ivory towers
While they're staring down the barrel of a gun
Will we still build all those ivory towers
And make believe that we did the things we should have done

Do you remember 68, a time of love and peace?
A generation born in hope
All those promises to keep
I saw you standing on the streets last night
You looked so all alone
Are you still searching for that peace of mind?
Will they find their way back home?

Oh how we've grown since those
Crazy childhood days
All the mountains that were climbed
And the journeys that were made
Tell me did we change the world?

Will we still live in our ivory towers
While they're staring down the barrel of a gun
Will we still build all those ivory towers
And make believe that we did the things we should have done

Were the tears we shared in vain?
There's a millionreasons to ask
What it's all about
Hear the echoes of the past ring out
There's another way
And though the times are changing now
The spirit of our youth still lives
In the heart of the few
Though the sings remind us of a fading memory
But there's no way back

Will we still live in our ivory towers
While they're staring down the barrel of a gun
Will we still build all those ivory towers
And make believe that we did the things we should have doneback to top
Nothing turned out right4:16
I looked in the mirror
But someone else had taken my place
I pulled on my blue jeans
Then found out I was so out of shape
So I walked in the sunshine
And suddenly it started to rain
So I reached for the crossword
But couldn't find where I'd left my brain

It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out right
It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out right

I tried to hide in the darkness
When someone went and turned up the light
All I wanted was peace and quiet
The everybody started to fight
So I called for a taxi
But the man said I'd have to wait
Cause i thought it was tomorrow
When I found out it was yesterday

It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out right
It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out right

I turned on the T.V.
But all I got was the same old repeats
I asked for coke with my whisky
And the waiter brought it to me neat
I took a drive in the country
But couldn't find my way out of town
I booked a table for dinner
But then the restaurant went and closed down

It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out right
It's just one of those days
When nothing turns out rightback to top
Out of the shadows4:42
Wipe the tears from your eyes
It's time for leaving but not goodbye
You don't know what it's like
They went and took the best years of my life
And they broke all our hearts
But not our spirit while we were apart
Now it's their turn to pay
But they can't give back what they took away

Oh I've waited such a long time
That I can't believe it's true
That somebody finally realized
It wasn't me or you

I wanna stand on the streets tonight
Out of the shadows and into the light
I wanna stand on the streets tonight
Out of the shadows and into the light

Who do you think you are?
If you've got problems I'll show you my scars
So don't turn away, you better listen
I've something to say
There's a wrong and a right
And there's a law if you're black or you're white
So we all make mistakes
Like being born in the wrong time and place

Crossing weeks and months off on a wall
Counting hours in a day
Writing letters well into the night
There was no other way

I wanna stand on the streets tonight
Out of the shadows and into the light
I wanna stand on the streets tonight
Out of the shadows and into the light

I'll take it all, take what's mine
Cause all i ever got was time
Take it all, take what's mine
And maybe it will work out fine

Wipe the tears from your eyes
It's time for leaving but not goodbye
You don't know what it's like
They went and took the best years of my life
And they broke all our hearts
But not our spirit while we were apart
Now it's their turn to pay
But they can't give back what they took away

I wanna stand on the streets tonight
Out of the shadows and into the light
I wanna stand on the streets tonight

Shoot for the city4:14
I love to walk these streets
The ghost of my own childhood
It's the place where I was born
All my memories are here
There's a heart that beats so strong
It keeps me safe and warmer
And no matter where I go
I know I'll always come back home

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fear

My father spent his life here
Digging for the future
A man of great respect
But he never had a chance
I left when I was young
To seek out fame and fortune
I had to know what life was like
Out on the other side

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fear

The school where I was taught
That life was but a journey
A retired army officer, reminising about the war
The park where Sunday afternoons would last forever
And down at Johnny's place
Where we danced the summertime blues

Out in the night I can hear the voices calling
Out in the dark i can hear it more and more

I gotta shoot for the city
It's the place where I belong
I gotta shoot for the city
I can't stay away too long
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's so much love round here
I gotta shoot for the city
I'll never be alone
There's nothing that I fearback to top
Coming home6:05
I'm coming home, now the waiting is all over
Can't find the words to tell you
How I feel for you tonight
A cold wind blows
But inside I feel a warm glow
I hold a pen in trembling hands
A stranger in a foreign land

Now I've found what I'm searching for
What we have means so much more
Tell them all that I'm coming home
Keep the candle burning brightly
Now I've found what I'm searching for
Every day oh I miss you more
Tell them all that I'm coming home

I'm coming home
To the mountains and the valleys
The cobbled streets
Where the boy became a man and learned to love
I hear your voice
Speaking softly in the morning
I see you lying next to me
Let the moment last forever more

Now I've found what I'm searching for
What we have means so much more
Tell them all that I'm coming home
Keep the candle burning brightly
Now I've found what I'm searching for
Every day oh I miss you more
Tell them all that I'm coming home

Oh, I know so much has changed
In our hearts I'm sure
What we've been through
Will make us strong again

Now I've found what I'm searching for
What we have means so much more
Tell them all that I'm coming home
Keep the candle burning brightly
Now I've found what I'm searching for
Every day oh I miss you more
Tell them all that I'm coming home tonightback to top
