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 parasite
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

Sundays satisfaction
Madness on the rise
Truth is on the doorstep
Welcoming the lies
All dressed up in sorrow
Got no place to go
Hold tight do it right
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

Fading silver lining
Writing's on the wall
Children get together
You can save us all
Future's on the corner
Showing us our time
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

JOHNNY BLADE

Tortured and twisted
He walks the streets alone
People avoid him
They know the street's his home

Cold blade of silver
His eyes they burn so wild
Mean as a tiger
Society's own child

Those that tried to burn him paid
You don't do that 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

JUNIOR'S EYES

Junior's eyes looked up to the skies in tears
He prayed that his maker
The giver and taker, would hear
Junior sighed as his hands reached out to the sky
Junior cried, the day that his best friend died
Yeah

You'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's grieving again
Innocent eyes watched the man who had gave everything
Junior's sorrow, he knew what tomorrow would bring

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
Reaching for reason, along with the time and the scars

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

A HARD ROAD

Old men crying, young men dying
World still turns as Father Time looks on
On and on
Children playing, dreamers praying
Laughter turns to tears love has gone
Has it gone

Oh, it's a hard road
Oh, it's a hard road

Poets yearning, lovers learning
On this path of life we pass along
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
Nighttime falling victim to the dawn
Shadows mourn
Days are crawling, time is calling
To the Earth another life is born
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

We're living in sorrow
Don't live in the past
And look to the future
Cause life goes too fast, you know

SHOCK WAVE

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 realize that you're gonna die

Leaving your body is your answer
That's what you plan to do
No dreaming, time you cheat death's 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 life in time
Look behind you!

Somebody's calling
Someone is near
Feel yourself falling
Crawling with fear
You tell yourself you're dreaming
You realize 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 brain
Ice cold fingers, running through your veins

AIR DANCE

She sits in silence, in her midnight world
With faded pictures, of a dancing girl
A 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 a prison you called a school
Taught your religion
Told what to do
I handed my childhood over to you

Traveling 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 our children
Keeping your laws
Someday you'll suffer
Then 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
Sealed in my cell
Whispering secrets
What do they tell
Mad politicians
Can't tell it true
I handed my children
Over to you

All over, over to you...

BREAKOUT

Instrumental

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
Well 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
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...
