Love Vigilantes
Oh, I've just come from the land of the sun
>From a war that must be won in the name of truth
With our soldiers so brave, your freedom we will save
With our rifles and grenades and some help from God
I want to see my family, my wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home, I've been so alone, you see

You just can't believe the joy I did recieve
When I finally got my leave and I was going home
Oh, I flew through the sky, my convictions could not lie
For my country I would die and I will see it soon
I want to see my family, my wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home, I've been so alone, you see

When I walked through the door, my wife she lay upon the floor
And with tears her eyes were sore, I did not know why
Then I looked into her hand and I saw the telegram
That said that I was a brave, brave men but that I was dead
I want to see my family, my wife and child waiting for me
I've got to go home, I've been so alone, you seeback to top
The Perfect Kiss
I stood there beside myself,
Thinking hard about the weather,
Then came by a friend of mine,
Suggested we go out together
Then I knew it from the start:
This friend of mine would fall apart
Pretending not to see his guilt,
I said "let's go out and have some fun"
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love

I have always thought about
Staying here and going out
Tonight I should have stayed at home,
Playing with my pleasure zone
He has always been so strange,
I'd often thought he was deranged
Pretending not to see his gun,
I said "let's go out and have some fun"
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
I know, you know, we believe in a land of loveback to top
This Time Of Night
We all feel the same
All pleasure and nothing to gain
I've known you from the start
I've grown used to your wooden heart
Now you know my name
You search your empty brain in vain
If you don't change your ways,
You'll end up here with neon rays
Without you they'll never know
Without you my life won't grow
Without you they'll never show
Without you the night won't go
Without you I'm left alone
Without you I'm on my own
Without you I lay here in pain
Without you I've gone insane

Now you must decide
What good's a lie when you've nothing to hide?
Remarks, they'll never show
They're dumb like you, they never will know
It's time we said goodbye
Bury your head and silence your cry
I've known the feel of pain:
Join our world and play our game
Without you they'll never know
Without you my life won't grow
Without you they'll never show
Without you the night won't go
Without you I'm left alone
Without you I'm on my own
Without you my life's a waste
Just for you I left my place
Without you I'm left alone
Without you I'm on my own
Without you I lay here in pain
Without you I've gone insane

(Whatever you may think of me,
Don't ever take my dignity
Whatever you may do to me,
Don't crucify my dignity)back to top
Sunrise
I've been waiting to hear your voice for too long now
One-way conversations do not work somehow
Tell me, how does one get your soul in touch with the one above
When one-way conversations pay a price for the use of love
I tried so hard last night, you would not talk to me
I live with the fear of a few with the gift
And I know what's going to be

Why did you never speak my name in front of my family?
You gave me a gift that you then took away
Are you ever going before?
Your name might be God but you do not say that much to me
Your name I forgot but you don't say that much to me
We might be your black sheep,
But you forgot us a long time ago
We might be your lost sheep,
But it's time you remembered us now

As we spend our days together, nothing can go wrong
No one told the truth about it because it was so strong
If you ever think of me, a gift within my name
If you read between the lines, you'll hang your head in shame
Easy ears will never hear, the ice will never freeze
Whatever I have done for you I did because you complained

(Whatever you may think of me whatever you may say
I've lived my whole life in danger,
You've lived your life in hate)*

Sooner Than You Think
Hello, everyone, it's nice to be here
I've come so far to see you all
I can see your deep blue eyes
They sleep beneath the open sky
Before you stands one like your brother
Swear to God he needs no other
But how can I afford to be
Here with you so carelessly
You know what you did was so unkind
You search for the life you need to find
There's right and there's wrong
And there's good and there's bad
And there's an answer to this I wish I had
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you do
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you do

Well, we had a party in our hotel last night
It ended up in an awful fight
My friend left me and my heart, too
I hope I don't end up like you
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you do
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you do

Your country is a wonderful place
It pales my England into disgrace
To buy a drink that is so much more reasonable
I think I'll go there when it gets seasonal
You know what you did was so unkind
You search for the life you need to find
There's right and there's wrong
And there's good and there's bad
And there's an answer to this I wish I had
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you do
Oh, you know what I mean, yes you doback to top
Sub-Culture
I like walking in the park
When it gets late at night
I move `round in the dark
And leave when it gets light
I sit around by day
Tied up in chains so tight
These crazy words of mine
So wrong they could be right
What do I get out of this?
I always try, I always miss
One of these days you'll go back to your home
You won't even notice that you are alone
One of these days when you sit by yourself
You'll realise you can't show off without someone else
In the end you will submit
It's got to hurt you a little bit

I like talking in my sleep
When people work so hard
They need what they can't keep
A choice that leaves them scarred
A view without a room
Unveils the truth so soon
And when the sun goes down
You've lost what you had found
What do I get out of this?
I always try, I always miss
One of these days you'll go back to your home
You won't even notice that you are alone
One of these days when you sit by yourself
You'll realise you can't show off without someone else
In the end you will submit
It's got to hurt you a little bit

One of these days you'll go back to your home
You won't even notice that you are alone
One of these days when you sit by yourself
You'll realise you can't show off without someone else
In the end you will submit
It's got to hurt you a little bit
What do I get out of this?
I always try, I always miss
One of these days you'll go back to your home
You won't even notice that you are alone
One of these days when you sit by yourself
You'll realise you can't show off without someone else
In the end you will submit
It's got to hurt you a little bit
What do I get out of this?
I always try, I always miss
One of these days you'll go back to your home
You won't even notice that you are aloneback to top
Face Up
Ever since I've seen your face
This life of mine has gone to waste
I was young and you were old
And I always knew you were cold
At the start you had a heart
But in the end you lost your friend
Can you see your own dark face?
It's dieing in a lonely place
Oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
I said, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you

As we get old, we lose our place
Reflecting back the world's disgrace
I feel so low, I feel so humble
Sometimes in life we take a tumble
Don't let anybody tell you that you're no good
`Cause you know they would
Don't let anybody tell you what you should do
`Cause it's not that way and
Oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
I said, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
We were young and we were pure
And life was just an open door
I said oh, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you

You were me and I was you
This world of ours it felt brand new
You took me a little further...
I heard it all before, I've heard it all before
I can't hear it anymore
Your hair was long, your eyes was blue
Guess what I'm gonna do to you!
Oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
I said, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
We were young and we were pure
And life was just an open door
I said oh, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
Oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
I said oh, oh, how I cannot bear the thought of you
We were young and we were pure
And life was just an open door
