1. Killing Time

The sound of gunfire echoes through the night
The killing and hatred is a terrible sight
Reports come in of a heavy attack
Message received, weíre moving back

Preparations are made for the journey back
Hints for survival, supplies are packed
No more nights in this eternal hell
Destination is simple, weíre moving out

Killing time - your lifeís on the line
Killing time Ė your time to kill
Killing time Ė what you say
Killing time - yeah, killing time

The silence is over, they attack us again
The killing and hatred drive me insane
Reports come in of a savage attack
Message received, weíre moving out

Ingenuity is needed to keep us alive
No time for cowardice, itís kill and survive
Like the killer kid with the switchblade knife
One nasty word and heíll take your life

Killing time - your lifeís on the line
Killing time Ė your time to kill
Killing time Ė what you say
Killing time - yeah, killing time

The sound of gunfire echoes through the night
The killing and hatred is a terrible sight
Reports come in of a savage attack
Message received, weíre moving back

Preparations are made for the journey back
Hints for survival, supplies are packed
No more nights in this eternal hell
Destination is simple, weíre moving out

Killing time - your lifeís on the line
Killing time Ė your time to kill
Killing time Ė what you say
Killing time - yeah, killing time




2. Vengeance

The nation wakes in anger
They stand side by side
The idols that we worship
Have fallen or have died
The truth is now apparent
As a cry runs through the night
Too late to stop the bloody deed
For they have lost their fight
Lost their fight

Behind its walls a city sleeps
Unaware that they have been slain
Outside in the distance
The enemy plots for its gain
The traitor climbs a steep staircase
To a tower that stands on high
With lighted torch he signals
Betraying all those inside

The flood gates, they are open
By a secret code broken
Ten thousand black hooded soldiers
Enter like dragons breathing fire
Guns that show no mercy
Forged from the devilís own fire
For in this dark and evil night
There were many born to die

Behind its walls a city sleeps
Unaware itís been slain
For in this dark and evil night
There were many born to die

The nation wakes in anger
They stand side by side
The idols that we worship
Have fallen or have died
The truth is now apparent
As a cry rings through the night
To late to stop the bloody deed
There were many born to die
There were many born to die
Born to die
Many, many born to die




3. Welcome To The Real World

Lunatics with automatic guns
Contaminated beef, muggers on the street
The Berlin Wall was the first thing to fall
Civil war in Bosnia, bye bye Yugoslavia

All around the world is falling down
Political solutions canít be found
Whatís going to happen to the communist party
Who really cares? Who wants to know

This is the real world yeah
Welcome to the real world

L.A. riots shocked a nation
Oil pollution, bloody revolutions
The Vietnam war was the first one we saw
Government corruption, nuclear destruction

Every day thereís another disaster
New leaders and political masters
Whatís going to happen to you and me
We need to know, we want the truth

This is the real world yeah
This is the real world

Government corruption, nuclear destruction
The Soviets had a meltdown, canít live in that town
Political solutions, bloody revolutions
Welcome, welcome
Welcome to the real world

People may come and people may go
Donít hang around Ďcause they donít wanna know
Itís not the world that I want
Itís not the world that I need
Tell me, tell me, why does it terrify me?

Every day thereís another disaster
Banana republics with political masters
What does the future hold for you and me
What wants to know? Who really cares?

This is the real world yeah
Welcome to the real world




4. Thunder

Dangerous ground is all that I found
I gotta tread so carefully
Big time talking makes no sound
You gotta act so cleverly

Welcome to the big time, howís it been?
Step inside, Iím gonna build you a dream

White light thunder, fire and rain
Days of thunder, can you take this strain

Seen it all let down long ago
Never knew where youíre coming from
Or what you gonna do
Came across as Jesus Christ
Shook our hand, paid the price
We got crucified

Welcome to the big time, howís it been?
Step inside, Iím gonna build you a dream

White light thunder, fire and rain
Days of thunder, canít you take this strain
White light thunder, fire and rain
Days of thunder, coming round again

Welcome to the big time, howís it been?
Step inside my friend, Iím gonna build you a rock n roll dream

White light thunder, fire and rain
Days of thunder, canít you take this strain
White light thunder, fire and rain
Days of thunder, coming round again




5. Eye Of The Storm

The prophet said beware, the judgement draws near
The time has come to save your soul
The message it is clear
Kingdoms, mountains crumble to the ground
Forgotten cities once lost, now they are found

From the north four horsemen ride
On steeds of many colours
Conquest, power, judgement of all others
Come and see, see the sword, given on to me
The sword of fire, plague and famine
Death on to thee

Reach out with your hand
Touch me if you can
Iím running from the eye of the storm

From the sea the beast shall rise
His chains they are broken
Death to those who bear his mark
For they were not chose
Thunder, lightning strikes him to the ground
Satan lost in a lake of fie, never to be found

Reach out with your hand
Touch me if you can
Iím running from the eye of the storm

The prophet said beware, the judgement draws near
The time has come to save your soul
The message it is clear
Reach out with your hand
Touch me if you can
Iím running from the eye of the storm
Of the storm
Iím running, just got running, keep on running
Iím running from the eye of the storm
Of the storm




6. Parody Of Wisdom

Hey you with your silly little views
Stand up and pay attention
Got a message for you coming through
Divine intervention
Iím a man on a mission sent down by god
Coming down to judge ya
Coming to lay down the law

Iím the face in the vision
Iím the sign on the wall
Canít ya, canít ya, canít ya hear me call

Stand up, come on
Everybody raise their hands
Time and time again
Iíll help you understand
Stand up, get up, get out
I will lead the way
Time and time again Iíll take you
To your judgement day

Iím a parody of wisdom, the clown of the ball
The mother of invention, the jackal in us all
Iím an incantation, Iím personified
The eternal idol, Iím immortalised

Iím symbolised, Iím personified
Iím immortalised

Stand up, come on
Everybody raise their hands
Time and time again
Iíll help you understand
Stand up, get up, get out
I will lead the way
Time and time again Iíll take you
To your judgement day

Stand up, come on
Everybody raise their hands
Time and time again
Iíll help you understand
Stand up, get up, get out
I will lead the way
Time and time again Iíll take you
To your judgement day




7. D.U.D.

She was D.U.D. on a downtown spree
Looking for somewhere to spend it
She was hot to trod, she was ready to go
Zooming in on me, I could never say no

Higher, sheís taking me higher
Looking for me, I was looking for you
You were coming on strong
Youíre not around too long

Higher, sheís taking me higher
Somethingís got a hold on me
I canít stop, canít break free
ĎCause I need someone to rescue me
Take it to the limit, build me up
Youíre taking me higher
Sheís taking me higher

Gonna light my fuse, ainít got nothing to loose
Iím gonna blow my top Ďcause I like it like that
Too much too fast, too little too late
The more you get is the more you take

Higher, sheís taking me higher
Somethingís got a hold on me
I canít stop, canít break free
ĎCause I need someone to rescue me
Take it to the limit, build me up
Youíre taking me higher
Sheís taking me higher

Higher, just a little bit higher
I wanna go higher, a little bit higher
Somethingís got a hold on me
I canít stop, canít break free
ĎCause I need someone to rescue me
Take it to the limit, build me up
Youíre taking me higher
Sheís taking me higher

Higher, sheís taking me higher
Somethingís got a hold on me
I canít stop, canít break free
ĎCause I need someone to rescue me
Take it to the limit, build me up
Youíre taking me higher, higher, higher




8. Prospector Of Greed

Kindness is a favour, you wonít get none from me
Your eyes they lie, displease, despise in hell eternity
If silence is your answer then leave here while you can
My world is filled with such as you
The ace is in my hand

Never had no problems in getting love and fun
The power of needís the power of greed
Will cut through any one
Donít live your life on my time
ĎCause my timeís all for me
Your wisdom fights, my wrongs, my rights
Iíll never set you free

Heartless labours fulfil my every need
Iím the winner, lover of none
Prospector of greed

Echo voices haunts me, still I seek my goal
To win where I am able to tear apart your soul
If by chance I lose it, the truth it will be known
The seeds of my fraternity
The seeds that I have sown

Heartless labours fulfil my every need
Iím the winner, lover of none
Prospector of greed
Prospector of greed

Kindness is a favour, you wonít get none from me
Your eyes they lie, displease, despise in hell eternity
If silence is your answer then leave here while you can
My world is filled with such as you
The ace is in my hand

Heartless labours fulfil my every need
Iím the winner, lover of none
Prospector of greed
Heartless labours fulfil my every need
Iím the winner
Prospector of greed
Prospector of greed

Iím the prospector of greed




9. Why ?

Iím caught in the middle
Seen the sun going down on the other
Side of town tonight, tonight
Caught in the middle
I canít help believing everything is gonna be alright

Now that youíre leaving
All the tears in your eyes donít disguise
How you feel inside, inside
Now that youíre going
All the signs on the wall
Say you wonít be coming back no more
I heard it all before

Tell my why? Why? Why?
Why do we cry?
I stand alone out in the cold

All around the children singing
In the streets the church bells ringing
Theyíre crying out, we want no more
Madmen laughing, mothers crying
In the city the innocent dying
Letís end it now, we want no more

Tell my why? Why? Why?
Why do we cry?
Whoís to blame, now let us know
So tell my why? Why? Why?
Why do we die?
We stand alone out in the cold

Tell my why? Why? Why?
Why do we cry?
Whoís to blame, now let us know
So tell my why? Why? Why?
Why do we die?
We stand alone out in the cold

Give and take compromise
Wipe the tears from our childrenís eyes
Weíve had enough, we want no more
With open arms I cry to you




10. The Raid

Thereís a raid going on in the East side of the city
Thereís a raid going on, the boys ainít showing no pity
Down on the waterfront thereís shooting and thereís killing
Down on the city streets the blood it is spilling

The boys, theyíre running, stealing and burning
The innocent are lying, screaming and dying
Thereís nowhere to run, you canít get away
Another street fight happens every day

Thereís a raid going on down in the city
Thereís a raid going on

Darkness all around me, blinding my view
I donít know where Iím going, Iím dazed and confused
Iíve struggled for a long time to get back on my feet
Every single effort ending in defeat

Itís hard but Iím trying, there ainít no way out of here
Iím in a maze full of door ways, only one will take me clear
Which one is the right one, they all seem the same
Which one is the right one to get me out of here

Thereís a raid going on down in the city
Thereís a raid going on, the boys ainít showing no pity
Thereís a raid going on, weíre coming on through
Thereís a raid going on, we got a raid on you

Thereís a raid going on down in the city
Thereís a raid going on

Fighting on forever, I guess thatís what I choose
Someday Iím gonna make it, Iíll never think Iíll lose
Donít know me down for trying, I guess thatís all I got
There ainít no denying Iím never gonna stop

Thereís a raid going on down in the cuty
A raid going on, the boys ainít showing no pity
Darkness all around me, blinding my view
I donít know where Iím going, Iím dazed and confused
Iíve struggled for a long time to get back on my feet
Every single effort ending in defeat

Thereís a raid going on down in the city
Thereís a raid going on, the boys ainít showing no pity
Thereís a raid going on, weíre coming on through
Thereís a raid going on, we got a raid on you, and you, and you, and you




11. Reach Out

Thereís trouble in the wind, itís coming my way
itís coming round fast, itís here to stay
If youíre looking for adventure, looking out for me
Iím the one you want, Iím the one you need

Reach out, take my hand
Only you can help me, canít you understand
You know you gotta reach out as far as you can
Let me be your leader, let me be your man
You know you got to reach out, yeah yeah yeah
Reach out

Your memories start to fade like a broken dream
Youíre coming on fast like a hurricane
I canít stop now, going fast
Iím gonna make this place burn
Itís guaranteed to blow your mind
Itís going down, down, down, down

Reach out, take my hand
Only you can help me, canít you understand
You know you gotta reach out as far as you can
Let me be your leader, let me be your man
You know you got to reach out, yeah yeah yeah
Reach out

Reach out, take my hand
Only you can help me, canít you understand
You know you gotta reach out as far as you can
Let me be your leader, let me be your man
You know you got to reach out, yeah yeah yeah
Reach out
Reach out
Reach out




12. Ground Zero

Heading down town, got to get around
See how hot this place can be
See the night life, kill some liquor
Get a woman for fantasy
The nightís still young
I got time on my hands
Iím honna hit it, watch me and see

Just let me tell ya, let me sell ya
This thing called alcohol
For some strange reason, for some strange people
It donít do nothing at all
Iíve got my bottle, Iím so drunk I canít see
This kind of livingís alright with me
Itís alright with me

Ground zero, point of impact, high velocity
Itís where itís happening, mister
Itís where you want to be

I got a problem, I gotta tell ya
Itís a thing called alcohol
For some strange reason, for some strange people
It donít do nothing at all
I got my bottle, Iím so drunk I canít see
I drink from it, it sucks from me
You know it sucks from me

Ground zero, point of impact, high velocity
Itís where itís happening, mister
Itís where you want to be
Ground zero, point of impact, high velocity
Youíre off the wall
Youíre well out of key

Heading down town, got to get around
See how hot this place can be
See the night life, kill some liquor
Get a woman for fantasy
The nightís still young
I got time on my hands
Iím honna hit it, watch me and see

Ground zero, point of impact, high velocity
Itís where itís happening
Itís where you want to be
Ground zero, point of impact, high velocity
Youíre off the wall
Youíre well out of key

Youíre going down, down
Down, down, youíre going down
Down, down, youíre going down
