When the moon kissed the silent lake The nightwind called us A place too crowded, much too full and loud We better leave now I saw you standing in the lamplight forlorn We gotta get away Desolation is the price they'll pay Now that we're on our own They predicted our future but they turned heaven into hell in no time by giving us the heebie-jeebies while they're driving with full headlight Here comes the night (for running away) We won't get another chance (for running away) It's too late to hide (for running away) Everybody's on the run (out of our way) Warning Sign - fading into the night Children starving in their mother's arms while the disciples pray in the church of economic growth But now their god is dead Cars are crashing, people screaming blue murder leaders go insane The light of hope now a black hole sun A flashing ray that burns All we have is each other, baby We hold and kiss as the rain falls down Smile for me one last time, my darling You will meet me on the other side Here comes the night (for running away) We won't get another chance (for running away) It's too late to hide (for running away) Everybody's on the run (out of our way) Here comes the night (for running away) We won't get another chance (for running away) It's too late to hide (for running away) Everybody's on the run (out of our way) Warning Sign - fading into the night

Same old stories and the same old song I’ve been living here for much too long Small town small minds it’s all so bloody daunting Sitting round with nothing to do watching stupid movies chinese kung fu Bruce Lee, Zombie Trash, forget your dream-hunting Down on main street there’s a danger sign saying “Caution: Dead End Street lies just straight ahead” Bored teenagers meet each night at nine getting soused, pale faces like they’re back from the dead I’ll be leaving on a night train Yeah, there’s gotta be a better place Don’t wanna be a basket case No, oh no… I’ll be leaving on a night train I don’t care and I won’t turn around Yeah, I’m gonna break new ground Hooray, I’m northern bound Out of this town right now Leave on a night train now Out of this town right now Leave on a night train now School work death — nothing else to do just do the things they expect from you but deep inside you know there’s gotta be a better life somewhere, someplace else Snow’s falling and my bags are packed I’m gonna leave tonight, well that’s a fact Cause I ain’t gonna wait til the best days of my life have been washed out And I’m walking down main street for one last time with its houses that look to me like a scene-of-crime I’ll be trading this life for a real big time but I don’t know where I’m gonna wake up at dawn I’ll be leaving on a night train Yeah, there’s gotta a better place Don’t wanna be a basket case No, oh no… I’ll be leaving on a night train I don’t care and I won’t turn around because I’m gonna break new ground No looking back, I’m northern bound Out of this town right now Leave on a night train now Out of this town right now Leave on a night train now

Sweet Magnolia his things are scattered everywhere Your prince charming so fuckin' poised, so debonair The telephone it rings and rings but no one's there I ran away I ran away I ran away Once I promised you my love but that was not enough Tonight down by the street He's waiting patiently Wish I'd still love you but I don't you turned my heart to stone and though I hate to go It's only tears you know Your ocean's too wide I'm drowning here tonight we're floating in a darkness where the cold begins to bite There will be no tomorrow no turning of the tide a deep blue sea keeps calling submerging open-eyed She's calling me her flowers washed down by the rain "I'll wait for thee" no sleep, no rest, no longer sane but don't you feel the loss, the pain: it's so inane No longer mine No longer mine No longer mine I'm so confused, I can't recall Where did we stumble, did we fall? I'm frightened and I cry cause our love has died tonight You're lost and now you crawl with your back against the wall Why did you leave me? Why did you leave me? Your ocean's too wide I'm drowning here tonight we're floating in a darkness where the cold begins to bite There will be no tomorrow no turning of the tide a deep blue sea keeps calling submerging open-eyed

Somebody's walking the dog like before The kids outside at the bus stop like in days of yore A young guy's pulling the cigarette machine Out there it's business as usual but here just died a dream Somebody's ringing at the door Love doesn't live here any more... The rooms are empty and I'm on my own reading your letter the third time turns my heart to stone The wind's not sounding your chimes anymore I left my keys on the sill cause I won't return no more Goodbye my love, I am leaving It's gettin' cold in the evening Oh, the fire it went out it went out so long Oh, I never saw no cloud Coming up along So the fire it went out It went out so long A long time a go And I didn't know No afterglow so much for our last show Was it all just lie? Until we die? Was it all just a lie? Kinda trick of the light? An illusion divine? The last test of time?

He waited all these years Lived in dreams and fears Hoping for a change that never comes Mirror, mirror on the wall He’d seen nothing at all An emptiness inside banged the drums Like a snake shedding its skin wondering what and where I've been I was lost among some scriptures written in sand Searching for the sun Not knowing what he’d done A roly-poly toy from pain to joy A voice inside his head the last words have been said He set his sails but never found no Helen of Troy The bonds that didn’t last turned into ghosts of christmas past Until the day I woke up to myself again Tell me, tell me who you are You’re only human You’re not a superstar Tell me, tell me who you are No more running away from the way you are Tell me, tell me who you are You’re only human You’re not a superstar You gotta tell me, tell me who you are Outside - Inside Inside - Outside

Sure you've come a long way From the backstage of the past Till you found out one day All their assertions just didn't last Their actions spoke louder than their words Your dreams and needs seemed so absurd Too entangled to see what you went through Have you been loved Like you need it? Have you been loved Like you deserve it? The way you look tonight With this sadness in your eyes I wish I could turn back the hands Of time and make them look at you The way that I see you The beauty and love that you shines in your heart Yesterday's ghosts sometimes still haunt you But your spirit keeps up the fight So brave, so strong - it's no wonder That you made it through your childhood nights Now I'm here to stay with you And whatever you're going through Even if some tears should fall I'll be there whenever you call The past has gone now, my love You're walking away from what they've done and together we're facing a new morning sun Have you been loved...

Up on the balcony I watched you walk away but I couldn’t see That this parting kiss was forever Oh come back to me Yet another summer without you Soon fall will be there But comes winter I guess I’ll be over in Cornwall somewhere I try walking in our footsteps These days passing in a time lapse I went through anger, hate and frustration searching for some kind of revocation We couldn’t fail? How did it happen? For a dare? Everything’s shattered Darkness embrace me I’m misplaced here This is the wrong score Stranded on a strange shore The way we were Our hearts were beating together til something occured Now you’re up there somewhere in Scotland I’m left in midair Guess I’m waiting for your return eternally But comes the end of December Let it rain down on me What have we found? Just a rebound Was it worth the price we paid? What have we gained after these strains? Remember Penzance Promenade? What’s the truth? The importance of who’s right or wrong I don’t care We've been fooling around for too long Much too long, my Love The point of no return on our way home Each day my heart is gettin’ colder The burden’s heavy on my shoulder Over and over I see the same scene Trapped in a nightmare not just a bad dream Couldn’t run coz I was petrified Tried to swallow my foolish pride Cities lost forever so it seems Missing you so much it makes me wanna scream Last night I had a dream Me flying high above the sea in the sky With my arms wide open dazzling clouds passing by And the mermaids’ song guiding me on my way To the coastline with its white cliffs of chalk and clay I’m trying hard to keep my eyes shut The things I see they are not clear-cut Tryin' to get you out of my mind Fuck off, you left me behind This time there’ll be no substitution Just like with former dissolutions Occupying my heart Now pack your things and run Because everything's said and done A saturday back in September The golden sunlight in your eyes This day I always will remember You were the fairest of all brides The sun has gone, We’re on our own Our paradise a fragile dream A void is calling and I’m falling Into time’s adamant stream Called your name into the night but you’re gone All forgone Not a flame will arise from the embers at dawn No more dawn, my Love The point of no return on our way home Come to me across the sea

Like the lark in the morning breeze you fly with the clouds in the sky Like the waves rolling in on the shore from days of yore You walk amongst stars that are shining like the light in your eyes Crowned by sundown and dressed in the light of the moon Glittering rainbows A warmth like the scent of the trees your song that travels through time comes like spring rain to me Your brown eyes they shine When you smile at me Your brown eyes they shine with all the love that I see All the trials of the past all the hurt you went through Made yourself only stronger Now look at you! Your silhouette revealing itself sets heavens afire The wind keeps caressing your hair as we're leaving the fair When nightfall is turning our world in a void out of sight You'll be chasing the last rays of light with your heart opened wide You're walking this earth with a passion so fervently Enchanting my heart and my soul you're a mystery to me Your brown eyes they shine When you smile at me Your brown eyes they shine with all the love that I see See your beauty unequaled A fire I desire You're everything to me My love, my life and my light Your brown eyes they shine When you smile at me Your brown eyes they shine with all the love that I see Oh, how they shine Oh, they shine...

Just before the rain would fall I know that we've said it all We talked and talked the hours were passing by but then you went home And by the river I sat I was thinking of you How could I know that this time it's true? You dance with the Moon and the Stars We walk between Venus and Mars I travel from midnight to noon to be with you, my love, soon We're creatures of a jade lagoon And when I walked home that night alone the wind whispering softly our fate's still unknown Under the streetlight I smelled your perfume just for a second Oh how I wished you could stay just for a while to come up to my room and make me smile You dance with the Moon and the Stars We walk between Venus and Mars I travel from midnight to noon to be with you, my love, soon We're creatures of a jade lagoon And we danced Kissed the sun and the moon

You're still alive, but older Now the nights are gettin' colder The jukebox in the corner still plays the same old song You've had enough of cryin' The game's up, love's been dying Too many times you've tried once more you're proven wrong Observing all the rules broken careless just by fools but still love's so much more than a transient caprice so hold on to your dreams Cause love's an endless flow that leaves no afterglow to the beauty of our life far away where passion's rife Come stay with me tonight let us keep the flame alight Til the morning goes to show I'll never let you go... She might come like a shower or in the wee small hours Just wait until you've seen the final curtain fall No, it's not an illusion in spite of your confusion your heart's still beatin' and one day you'll hear the call They're playing different games simply interchanging names But they will never find what you bear in your mind (so hold on to your dreams) Cause love's an endless flow that leaves no afterglow to the beauty of our life far away where passion's rife Come stay with me tonight let us keep the flame alight Til the morning goes to show I'll never let you go

Once I dreamt to be home again even for just now and then while the rain fell down waiting for a ray of light A cold wind’s blowing night jessamine and heather feels like your velvet skin You’re embodied in the gale that reaches our shore At eventide we’re getting to the core I see the wilderness and storms in your eyes And you’ve changed my life with your red-hot fire you’re my adrenalin Like a burning sky you can take me higher you’re my adrenalin I see a brand new dawn Yesterday is gone Yes, I’m remembering And if the stars should fall I wouldn’t care at all You’re my adrenalin Your candle burns in the deep dark night We’re walking through the gardens of delight while this world outside lies quiet and the things we do feel oh so right You touch me skin make me shivering breathe down your neck raising trembling and we’re entangled in lust the wages of our sin And we’re drowning getting down, we’re burning bright We’re like two shining spirits in the night And you’ve changed my life with your red-hot fire you’re my adrenalin Like a burning sky you can take me high you’re my adrenalin I see a brand new dawn Yesterday is gone Yes, I’m remembering And if the stars should fall I wouldn’t care at all You’re my adrenalin And we take refuge with the dawning of the day and the morning sun shines in your eyes Oh, you’ve changed my life with your red-hot fire you’re my adrenalin Like a burning sky you can take me high you’re my adrenalin I see a brand new dawn Yesterday is gone I’m remembering And if the stars should fall I wouldn’t care at all You’re my adrenalin Oh you changed my life with your red-hot fire you’re my adrenalin Like a flaming sun you got me on the run you’re my adrenalin We see a brand new dawn days of yore have gone Yes, we’re remembering Till the end of time you’re my perfect rhyme You’re my adrenalin

Too many bad days So many sad ways This house was not a home Trying not to surrender Sometimes she remembers How she’s walking all alone Classroom daydreaming Words without meaning Salad days just passing by But a heart full of sorrow Hopes for tomorrow It’s a case of do or die Hiding inside Preparing for fight Now that she called a spade a spade Detecting the lies with innocent eyes Waiting for something in the night She’s walking with Angels Dancing in rainbows Talking to the wind, the clouds and the rain She’s fighting the demons Waiting for nighttime When the world around her lies quiet Don’t you ever walk away These sides they were choosing Were just too confusing But her dreams they never died One summer in Norway She did it her way Turned into a rider in the sky Sit down here beside me The way that it should be I know it is not easy being free But the rain will stop falling And angels are calling For you to fly across the sea Pushing your barrow for too many years So steep the path but still you tried to hide the tears You’ve had enough of their truth turning into lies You look through them with your all-detecting eyes What if this town was built of ruins of the past? What if these solid walls someday came down? But now you’ve found a way to turn things around they didn’t notice cause you’ve left without a sound She’s walking with Angels Dancing in rainbows Talking to the wind, the clouds and the rain She’s fighting the demons Waiting for nighttime When the world around her lies quiet No, she’ll never walk away Forever she will stay It’s not easy being free Talking with the wind, the clouds and the rain

We are stars Being watched from the gutter This is our seedtime Into light Through the darkness of Ulthar We are crossing the line Saw your strange breed Far from a distance Veiled by black night Cold wind's blowing Sunset's fading For ravenous parasites Still we stand In silence we're waiting For the Fates to decide For the last time You've missed your chances Are you ready to die? Cause we're crossing the line Crossing the line All your warlords Prophets and masters Paved the way to decline With their lies, greed And egomania Have they fooled you each time Just a few Had the courage to fight for What was worth to defend But you laughed at them Making them martyrs Facing such bitter ends Still we stand Anxiously waiting Their sentence is passed We're releasing The Hounds of Damnation Armageddon divine As we're crossing the line Crossing the line And the Angels came down from heaven Clothed in clouds and rainbows crowned their heads And their faces were like a myriad of suns And their feet like pillars of fire And they cried with one voice, And seven legions uttered their voices. And the angels lifted up their swords to heaven And sware by her That liveth for ever and ever That there should be time no longer We're the stars That will never be looked at By human eyes any more Now the Earth A Garden of Eden Won't have to suffer no more Hear the birds sing their beautiful farewell To the Angels of Doom Riding back with the souls of those who loved They'll find a new home Still we stand In silence we're waiting Cause the Fates stll decide For all creatures grandeur and freedom We're defending the line Defending the line

As I’m walking down yesteryear’s lane past the houses and homes of my life deserted and empty no lights in the windows at night it’s all quiet I’ve been searching in all of these rooms rattling at closed doors and cryin’ but those years have been fading in time like a book that’s been never read twice Goddamn I haven’t seen before call me stupid, call me blind a prospect of what might have been unnervingly entering my mind Listening to Bruce all night long as he’s driving away in a stolen car down the road riding by night down the highways and byways of time Strange but I seem to be back again from these restless years Sure it comes as a surprise but I’m still here More different than I thought I am no more prey to blind fear I’m back again no more being departed, my friend Wondering why everyone just walked away left all fucked up one fine day acting in very strange ways I couldn’t find the right words to say But now I see it was all just my fault every romance comes to a grinding halt when you lose yourself in someone else instead of cutting your own path, my friend Rewrite the story of my life Forgive and forget if you can No more dyin’ for you under your balcony blue been there, done that several times Yes, I can live on top of the mountain It’s not cold and forsaken at all there with you Me and you Yes we’ve opened the door to a new world Strange but I seem to be back again from these restless years Sure it comes as a surprise but I’m still here More different than I thought I am no more prey to blind fear I’m back again no more being departed, my friend Strange but I seem to be back again from these restless years Sure it comes as a surprise Stay here, stay near Stronger than I thought I am forget about the tears I’m back again no more being departed, my friend
