Misty morning, clouds in the sky Without warning, the wizard walks by Casting his shadow, weaving his spell Funny clothes, tinkling bell Never talking Just keeps walking spreading his magic Evil power disappears Demons worry when the wizard is near He turns tears into joy Everyone's happy when the wizard walks by Never talking Just keeps walking spreading his magic Sun is shining, clouds have gone by All the people give a happy sigh He has passed by, giving his sign Left all the people feeling so fine Never talking Just keeps walking spreading his magic
Behind the Wall of Sleep
Precious cups within the flower deadly petals with strange power faces shine a deadly smile back up on you at your trial Chill and numbs from head to toe icy sun with frosty glow Why'd you go reaching your sorrow? why'd you go read no tomorrow Feel your spirit rise with the priest feel your body falling to its knees Take your walk of remorse take your body to a corpse take your body to a corpse take your body to a corpse if you want all remorse take your body to a corpse Now from darkness, there springs light Wall of Sleep is cold and bright Wall of Sleep is lying broken Sun shines in, you are awoken

The world today is such a wicked thing Fighting going on between the human race People give good wishes to all their friends While people just across the sea are counting the dead A politician's job they say is very high For he has to choose who's got to go and die They can put a man on the moon quite easy while people here on earth are dying of old diseases A woman goes to work every day after day She just goes to work just to earn her pay Child sitting crying by a life that's harder he doesn't even know who is his father
Red sun rising in the sky Sleeping village, cockerels cry Soft breeze blowing in the trees peace of mind, feel at ease
Now the first day that I met ya I was looking in the sky When the sun turned all a blur and the thunderclouds rolled by The sea began to shiver and the wind began to moan It must've been a sign for me to leave you well alone I was born without you, baby but my feelings were a little bit too strong you never said you love me and I don't believe you can 'cause I saw you in a dream and you were with another man You looked so cool and casual and I tried to look the same But now I've got to know ya tell me who am I to blame? I was born without you, baby but my feelings were a little bit too strong Now the whole wide world is movin' 'cause there's iron in my heart I just can't keep from cryin' 'cause you say we've got to part Sorrow grips my voice as I stand here all alone And watch you slowly take away a love I've never known I was born without you, baby but my feelings were a little bit too strong

We sail through endless skies stars shine like eyes the black night sighs The moon in silver trees falls down in tears light of the night The earth, a purple blaze of sapphire haze in orbit always While down below the trees bathed in cool breeze silver starlight breaks down the night And so we pass on by the crimson eye of great god Mars as we travel the universe
Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind? Can he walk at all, Or if he moves will he fall? Is he alive or dead? Has he thoughts within his head? We'll just pass him there why should we even care? He was turned to steel in the great magnetic field Where he travelled time for the future of mankind Nobody wants him He just stares at the world Planning his vengeance that he will soon unfold Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear Vengeance from the grave Kills the people he once saved Nobody wants him They just turn their heads Nobody helps him Now he has his revenge Heavy boots of lead fills his victims full of dread Running as fast as they can Iron Man lives again!

Fairies Wear Boots
Goin' home, late last night suddenly I got a fright Yeah I looked throughout the window and surprised what I saw Fairy boots were dancing' with a dwarf, all right now! Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me yeah I saw it, I saw it, I tell you no lies Yeah Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes, well all right now! So I went to the doctor, see what he could give me he said "Son, son, you've gone too far. 'cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do."
ALRIGHT NOW!! Won't you listen? When I first met you, didn't realize I can't forget you, for your suprize you introduced me, to my mind And left me wanting, you and your kind Oh yeah! I love you, Oh you know it My life was empty forever on a down Until you took me, showed me around My life is free now, my life is clear I love you sweet leaf, though you can't hear Oh yeah!

Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved? Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you? Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school? When you think about death do you lose your breath or do you keep your cool? Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope - do you think he's a fool? Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say If they knew you believe in God above? They should realize before they criticize that God is the only way to love Is your mind so small that you have to fall In with the pack wherever they run Will you still sneer when death is near And say they may as well worship the sun? I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe? You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late.
Children of the Grave
Revolution in their minds - the children start to march Against the world in which they have to live and all the hate that's in their hearts They're tired of being pushed around and told just what to do They'll fight the world until they've won and love comes flowing through Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way? Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear? Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear? So you children of the world, listen to what I say If you want a better place to live in spread the words today Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave Or you children of today are Children of the Grave, Yeah!
Lord of this World
You're searching for your mind don't know where to start can't find the key to fit the lock on your heart you think you know but you are never quite sure your soul is ill but you will not find a cure. Your world was made for you by someone above but you chose evil ways instead of love. You made me master of the world where you exist the soul I took from you was not even missed. Lord of this world Evil possessor Lord of this world He's your confessor now! You think you're innocent you've nothing to fear You don't know me, you say, but isn't it clear? You turn to me in all your worldly greed and pride But will you turn to me when it's your turn to die
My name it means nothing my fortune is less My future is shrouded in dark wilderness Sunshine is far away, clouds linger on Everything I possessed - Now they are gone They are gone They are gone Oh where can I go to and what can I do? Nothing can please me only thoughts are of you You just laughed when I begged you to stay I've not stopped crying since you went away The world is a lonely place - you're on your own Guess I will go home - sit down and moan. Crying and thinking is all that I do Memories I have remind me of you
Into the Void
Rocket engines burning fuel so fast Up into the night sky they blast Through the universe the engines whine Could it be the end of man and time Back on earth the flame of life burns low Everywhere is misery and woe Pollution kills the air, the land and sea Man prepares to meet his destiny Rocket engines burning fuel so fast Up into the night sky so vast Burning metal through the atmosphere Earth remains in worry, hate and fear With the hateful battles raging on rockets flying to the glowing sun Through the empires of eternal void Freedom from the final suicide Freedom fighters sent out to the sun escape from brainwashed minds and pollution. Leave the earth to all its sin and hate find another world where freedom waits. Past the stars in fields of ancient void Through the shields of darkness where they find Love upon a land a world unknown where the sons of freedom make their home Leave the earth to Satan and his slaves leave them to their future in the grave Make a home where love is there to stay Peace and happiness in everyday
Wheels of Confusion
Long ago I wandered through my mind in the land of fairy tales and stories Lost in happiness I knew no fears Innocence and love was all I knew was it illusion? Soon the days went passing into years Happiness just didn't come so easy Life was born of fairy tales and daydreams Innocence was just another word was it illusion? Lost in the wheels of confusion Running through furnace of tears Eyes full of angered illusion Hiding in every day things So I found that life is just a game But you know there's never been a winner Try your hardest, just to be a loser The world will still be turning when you're gone yeah when you're gone!
Well I'm leaving tomorrow at daybreak catch the fastest train around nine Yes I'm leaving the sorrow and heartache before it takes me away from my mind Send me love and I may let you see me Send me hopes that can spin in my head But if you really want me to answer I can only let you know when I'm dead When sadness fills my days It's time to turn away and then tomorrow's dreams become reality to me So realize I'm much better without you You're not the one and only thing in my heart I'll just go back to pretending I'm living so this time I'm gonna have to depart
I feel unhappy I feel so sad I've lost the best friend That I ever had She was my woman I loved her so But it's too late now I've let her go I'm going through changes I'm going through changes We shared the years We shared each day In love together We found a way But soon the world Had its evil way My heart was blinded Love went astray I'm going through changes I'm going through changes It took so long To realize And I can still hear Her last goodbyes Now all my days Are filled with tears Wish I could go back And change these years I'm going through changes I'm going through changes
I want to reach out and touch the sky I want to touch the sun but I don't need to fly I'm gonna climb up every mountain of the moon And find a distant man a-waving his spoon I've crossed the ocean, turned every bend I found the crossing near a golden rainbow's end I've been through magic and through life's reality I've lived a thousand years and it never bothered me Got no religion, don't need no friends Got all I want and I don't need to pretend Don't try to reach me, 'cause I'd tear up your mind I've seen the future and I've left it behind
What you get and what you see Things that don't come easily Feeling happy in my vein Icicles within my brain (cocaine) Something blowing in my head Winds of ice, it soon will spread Death would freeze my very soul Makes me happy, makes me cold My eyes are blind but I can see The snowflakes glisten on the tree The sun no longer sets me free I feel there's no place freezing me Let the winter sun shine on Let me feel the frost of dawn Fill my dreams with flakes of snow Soon I'll feel the chilling glow Don't you think I know what I'm doing Don't tell me that it's doing me wrong You're the one that's really a loser This is where I feel I belong Crystal world with winter flowers Turns my day to frozen hours Lying snowblind in the sun Will my ice age ever come?
Too much in the truth they say Keep it 'till another day Let them have their little game illusion helps to keep them sane Let them have their little toys fast sports cars and motor noise exciting in their plastic place frozen food in a concrete maze You're gonna go insane I'm trying to save your brain I don't know what's happening My head's all torn inside People say I'm heavy They don't know what I hide Take a life, it's going cheap kill someone, no one will weep Freedom's yours, just pay your dues We just want your soul to use You're gonna go insane I'm trying to save your brain
St. Vitus' Dance
So you think you know what's going on inside her head You think she wants your money but it's you she wants instead When you think about the things that she did long ago it breaks your heart but deep down boy you know it hurts to go You feel your love so shattering you feel you want to die Just because someone did take off telling you a lie If I were you I'd try again and try to make amends She only thinks of you, you know I'm talking as a friend
Under the Sun / Every Day Comes and Goes
Well I don't want no demon to tell me what it's all about No black magician telling me to get my soul out Don't believe in violence, I don't even believe in peace I've opened the door and my mind has been released Well I don't want no preacher telling me about the god in the sky No I don't want no one to tell me where I'm gonna go when I die I wanna live my life with no people telling me what to do I just believe in myself, 'cause no one else is true Every day just comes and goes Life is one big overdose People try to ruin me and I can't seem to eliminate them People riding their real pace keep on running their rat race The ante is risen once a week in their world of make-believe So believe what I tell you, it's the only way to fight in the end Just believe in yourself, you know you really shouldn't have to pretend Don't let those empty people try and interfere with your mind Just live your life and leave them all behind
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
You've seen life through distorted eyes You know you had to learn The execution of your mind You really had to turn The race is run the book is read The end begins to show The truth is out, the lies are old But you don't want to know Nobody will ever let you know When you ask the reasons why They just tell you that you're on your own Fill your head all full of lies The people who have crippled you You want to see them burn The gates of life have closed on you And now there's just no return You're wishing that the hands of doom Could take your mind away And you don't care if you don't see again The light of day Nobody will ever let you know When you ask the reasons why They just tell you that you're on your own Fill your head all full of lies Where can you run to What more can you do No more tomorrow Life is killing you Dreams turn to nightmares Heaven turns to hell Burned out confusion Nothing more to tell Everything around you What's it coming to God knows as your dog knows Bog blast all of you Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Nothing more to do Living just for dying Dying just for you

I'm tryin to get through! Love has given life to you And now it's your concern Unseen eyes of inner life Will make your soul return Still I look but not to touch The seeds of life are sownCurtain of the future falls The secret stays unknown Just remember love is life And hate is living death Treat your life for what it's worth And live for every breath Looking back I've lived and learned But now I'm wondering Here I wait and only guess What this next life will bring

Who are you?
Looking For Today
It's complete but obsolete All tomorrow's become yesterday In demand but second hand It's been heard before you even play Up to date but came too late Better get yourself another name You're so right but overnight You're the one who has to take the blame Everyone just gets on top of you The pain begins to eat your pride You can't believe in anything you knew When was the last time that you cried Don't delay you're in today But tomorrow is another dream Sunday's star is Monday's scar Out of date before you're even seen At the top so quick to flop You're so new but rotting in decay Like butterfly so quick to die But you're only looking for today Everyone just gets on top of you The pain begins to eat your pride You can't believe in anything you knew When was the last time that you cried Looking for today Glamour trip so soon to slip Easy come but oh how quick it goes Ten foot tall but what to fall Hard to open yet so easy to close Front page news but so abused You just want to hide yourself away Over-paid, but soon you fade Because you're only looking for today Looking for today

Hole in the Sky
I'm looking through a hole in the sky I'm seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie I'm getting closer to the end of the line I'm living easy where the sun doesn't shine I'm living in a room without any view I'm living free because the rent's never due The synonyms of all the things that I've said Are just the riddles that are built in my head Hole in the sky, take me to heaven Window in time, through it I fly I've seen the stars disappear in the sun The shooting's easy if you've got the right gun And even though I'm sitting waiting for Mars I don't believe there's any future in cause Hole in the sky, take me to heaven Window in time, through it I fly Yeah! I've watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast I've seen the western world go down in the east The food of love became the greed of our time But now I'm living on the profits of pride

I'm just another back street kid Rock 'n Roll music is the only thing I really dig Can't stop the music going round inside my head I'm a rock 'n roll soldier, gonna play it until I'm dead Nobody I know will ever take my rock 'n roll away from me Sitting in the back seat of a shiny limousine Living in a taxi can't remember where I've been Playing my music, sitting in my hotel room Writing about the stars and thinking about the hand of doom Nobody I know will ever take my rock 'n roll away from me Living life comes easy if you know which way you're going Got to see yourself in other's eye's, surprised? Living like I want to don't come easy, but I'm trying Sorting out what's true and what are lies, it's wise Brought up in a back street living with the salt of the land Seems that now my music's paying off my tax demands So listen to the music, want to see you get so high 'Cause I'm a back street rocker and I will be till the day I die Nobody I know will ever take my rock 'n roll away from me
You Won't Change Me
I'm just a man and I am what I am Nobody will ever change my ways I don't need money and I don't need no lies I only need to live for today But I'd like to talk things over with you I want to hear the things you say, today Although you won't change my anyway, no no way I wish you'd come and see me, I'd like to hold you I want to set my mind all free You understand me woman, you give me time But I don't need no sympathy Still I wonder what it's like to be loved Instead of hiding in myself Nobody will change me anyway, no no way Nobody's gonna change my world That's something too unreal Nobody will change the way I feel So listen to me now, hear what I say Please give me time and maybe love If there's a God up there, well I hope he helps me I need him now to set me free 'Cause it may be that it's over for me If you don't hear the things that I say, today Nobody will change me anyway, no, no way Nobody's gonna change my world That's something too unreal Nobody will change the way I feel
It's All Right
Told you once about your friends and neighbours They were always seeking but they'll never find it It's alright, yes it's alright Where to go and where to see It's always been this way and it can never be It's alright, yes it's alright Give it all and ask for no return And very soon you'll see and you'll begin to learn That's it's alright, yes it's alright Don't you know that it's so good for you You can be making love and see it all go through But it's alright, yes it's alright So I told you once about your friends and neighbours They were always seeking but they'll never find it It's alright, yes it's alright
Watch the universe at the death of another day Fatalistic ships from a distant shore In the back of my mind I could see she was standing there Like the feeling you have When you've been there before She was a gypsy woman She was as cold as the day She said I'd got it coming And then she took me away She took me through the shadows of her sunken dream I thought it's over for me, she wasn't all she seemed She took my hand and then she started to speak She told me she'd had the call With eyes of fire that were burning my soul She looked into her crystal ball She read my fortune then she read my mind She didn't like my thoughts at all She showed me shadows, a spectre of life My soul just wanted to scream She stared so deeply into my eyes That's when I fell into a dream When I awoke in bed she lay beside me And then she read me with her eyes, she said: So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now, now, Now! Gypsy woman you're the devil in drag You are the queen of all hell You took my body, now you're wasting my soul You've got me under your spell And as the sun shines on another day You're gonna take my mind as well, it's over So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now. So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now So you wanna be a gypsy, come on now So you wanna be a gypsy
All Moving Parts Stand Still
Super animation, turning on a nation And they're saying all moving parts stand still Since he was elected, adrenaline injected Hear him saying all moving parts should kill Just like the hero he's got them all on the run, Yes he's won Since he passed the motion They're building in the ocean And he's saying all men should all be free What a combination, peace and radiation And he's saying free men should fight for me Just like his momma, he seems to get his pleasure from pain And the rain, ain't that strange? Very strange I like choking toys You've got to see me before you meet the boys Teacher's burnt the school He's had enough of sticking to the rules People stop and see He's got to be more decadent than me Just to pass the time He gets his kicks from licking off the wine Pretty silly ladies All Cynthia's and Sadie's Call him and he takes their numbers down Says he is a woman Should have seen it coming And she says she's married to a clown Just like a lady she'll keep you guessing through the night Not tonight, well I might, oh alright...!

I've been a long long time, waiting for you I didn't want to see you go, oh no, no And now it's hurting so much, what can I do? I wanted you to be my wife The days are passing slowly, since you've gone Your memories are all I have, yes I have I sit here waiting but you'll never show Without you I can't carry on, ooh my baby You said you'd always love me, all of my life And then you said your last goodbye, yes goodbye Why the sudden change, why all of the lies, I should have seen it in your eyes The endless hours of heartache, waiting for you My summer love has turned to rain, oh the pain The silent emptiness of one sided love My life means nothing now you're gone... Ooh my baby
The neon lights are shining on me again I walk the lonely streets in search of a friend I need a lady to help me to get through the night, Through the night If I could find her then everything would feel all right The sleepy city is dreaming the nigh time away Out on the street I watch tomorrow becoming today I see a man, he's got take away women for sale Yes for sale Guess that's the answer 'Cause take away women don't fail... Oh dirty women, they don't mess around Oh dirty women, they don't mess around You've got me coming You've got me going around, let's go Oh dirty women, They don't mess around Walking the streets I wonder will it ever happen Gotta be good then everything will be o.k. if I could score tonight then I will end up happy A woman for sale is gonna help me save my day...
Never say die
People going nowhere, taken for a ride Looking for the answers that they know inside Searching for a reason, looking for a rhyme Snow White's mirror said: partners in crime! Don't they ever have to worry? Don't you ever wonder why? It's a part of me that tells you Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die Never, never, never say die again Sunday's satisfaction, Monday's home and dry Truth is on the doorstep, welcome in the lie All dressed up in sorrow, got no place to go Hold back, 'till it's ready, taking it slow Don't they ever have to worry? Don't you ever wonder why? It's a part of me that tells you Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die Never, never, never say die again Don't you ever say die Don't you ever say die Never say die Panic, silver lining, writing's on the wall Children get together, you can save us all Future's on the corner, throwing us a die Slow down, turn around, everything's fine There's no need to have a reason There's no need to wonder why It's a part of me that tells you Oh, don't you ever, don't ever say die Never, never, never say die again
There's no reason for you to run You can't escape the fate of the chosen one Black moon rising, in a blood red sky This time you realise that you're gonna die Drinking your blood brew is your answer That's what you plan to do No dreaming, time you cheat this master You're on your own going through Wind of mist has taken over your mind And you think you're on your own Don't believe you are the only one here Look around, you're not alone Feel the forces from another world Ghostly shadows fill your mind Evil power hanging over you As you freeze, you're like a child Look behind you! Somebody's calling Someone is near Feel yourself falling Falling with fear You tell yourself you're dreaming You realise you're screaming You know that this shouldn't happen to you You tell yourself that it's scary too But there is nothing you can do, oh! Ghostly shadows from the other world Evil forces in your mind Trapped between the worlds of life and death Frozen in the realms of time Look behind you! You feel yourself falling, you're at the end of the line Your body is crawling, but your senses are blind Cold, cold feelings are running through your brains Ice cold fingers, flowing through your veins
Tortured and twisted, he walks the streets alone People avoid him, they know the street's his own Cold blade of silver, his eyes they burn so wild Mean as a tiger, society's own child Go the tiger, burn in hate You know you have to, Johnny Blade He's the meanest guy around his town One look and he will cut you down Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Life has no meaning, and Death's his only friend Will fate surprise him, where will he meet his end? He feels so bitter, yes he's so full of hate To die in the gutter, I guess that's Johnny's fate Rivals all across the land He kills them with his knife in hand He's the meanest guy around his town One look and he will cut you down Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Johnny Blade, Johnny Blade Well you know that Johnny's a spider And his web is the city at night He's a victim of modern frustration That's the reason he's so ready to fight He's the one that should be afraid What will happen to you, Johnny Blade? Oh he knows his future's decided And he ain't gonna change it, no way He was born to die in the gutter He'll keep fighting 'till the end of his days Been alone all through his life His only friend is a switchblade knife He's the one who should be afraid What will happen to you, Johnny Blade? You fool the people Who's fooling who? It's time to listen The fool is you
Old men crying, young men dying World still turns as Father Time looks on On and on Children playing, dreamers praying Laughter turns to tear as love has gone Has it gone? Oh, it's a hard road Oh, it's a hard road Whirlwind churning, lovers learning On this path of life we can't back down Is it wrong? Widows weeping, babies sleeping Life becomes the singer and the song Sing along Oh, it's a hard road Carry your own load Why make the hard road? Why can't we be friends? No need to hurry We'll meet in the end Why make the hard road? Why can't we be friends? No need to worry Let's sing it again Brother's sharing, mother's caring Night time falling victim to the dawn Shadows small Days are crawling, time is calling To the Earth that not that life has gone Love line drawn Oh, it's a hard road Carry your own load Oh, it's a hard road Oh, it's a hard road \dots We're living in sorrow We're living the best And look to the future 'Cause life goes together now
Junior's eyes looked up to the skies in tears He prayed that his maker, the giver and taker, would 'pear Junior sighed, as his hands reached out to the sky Junior cried, the day that his best friend died Yeah! They're coming home again tomorrow I'm sorry it won't be for long With all the pain I've watched you live within I'll try my hardest not to cry when it is time to say goodbye Junior's eyes, they couldn't disguise the pain His father was leaving, and Junior is grieving again Innocent eyes watched the man who had gave everything Junior's sorrow, who knew what tomorrow would bring? Yeah! They're coming home again tomorrow I'm sorry it won't be for long With all the pain I've watched you live within I'll try my hardest not to cry When it is time to say goodbye Junior's eyes looked into the skies once more Now he knew well, this life was hell for sure He desperately tried, his fingertips stretched to the stars, yeah Reaching for reason, along with the time and the stars Yeah! They're coming home again tomorrow I'm sorry it won't be for long With all the pain I've watched you live within I'll try my hardest not to cry When it is time to say goodbye
She sits in silence, in her midnight world Her faded pictures, of her dancing girls Her distant dreamer, on the seas of time Her happy memories, dancing through her mind In days of romance She was the queen of dance She'd dance the night away And as the seasons turn the days to years She holds her pictures, hears the silent cheers The days grow lonely for the dancing queen And now she dances only in her dreams In days of romance She was the queen of dance She'd dance the night away, away, away, away
Over to You
Born in the window Nobody's fool Raised in the prison You called the school Taught young in legends Told what to do I handed my childhood Over to you Travelling endlessly I'm searching for mind I'm almost afraid of what I will find Wandering aimlessly Oh what can I do? I handed my future over to you, to you Over to you Future looks blue What can I do? Watching for freedom Fighting your wars Feeding your children Keeping your laws Someday you'll suffer And what I'll do I'll hand all your promises Over to you Standing inside myself I'm losing control You made me believe in the stories you told Waiting impatiently What else can I do? I handed my future over to you, to you Over to you Future looks blue What can I do? Tears filled of sadness Stealing myself Which burning secrets? What to they tell? Mad politicians Can tell it true I handed my children Over to you All over, over to you All over, over to you All over, over to you...
Swinging the Chain
It's against my uniform To be a civil judge All the songs are history now 'Bout rock stars and their grudge Let us cast our minds back To thirty years or more You took up all the vandals Will Hitler beat 'em all? And we're sad and sorry Really sorry that it happened that way Yes we're sad and sorry But why'd you have to treat us that way? Compare ourselves with others And cover them in sin Oh, God what a terrible A terrible state we're in There must be some way out of here A compromise that's right If we cannot work it out We're gonna have to fight Yes we're sad and sorry Really sorry that it happened that way Yes we're sad and sorry We cannot go on in those days I'm talking about my brothers Yeah, I'm talking 'bout sisters as well And I wish you good luck Good luck! Oh, but the world's still on fire Chain the hope you take on, liar This fire We're on fire, we're on fire, yeah
