01 MELANCHOLY (THE HOLY MARTYR)

(4:48)

Make the sadness go away, come back another day
For years I've tried to teach, but their eyes are empty
Empty too I have become, for them I must die
A sad and troubled race
An ungrateful troubled place

I see the sadness in their eyes, melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion, the human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me, this is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me, this is what I'll die for

Make the sadness go away, come back another day
The things I've said and done, don't matter to anyone
But still, you push me to see, something, I can never be
Why am I their shattered king
I don't mean anything

I see the sadness in their eyes, melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion, the human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me, this is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me, this is what I'll die for

I see the sadness in their eyes, melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion, the human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me, this is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me, this is what I'll die for

I see the sadness in their eyes
(Make the sadness go away)
Melancholy in their cries
Devoid of all the passion
(For them, for them, all must die)
The human spirit cannot die
Look at the pain around me, this is what I cry for
Look at the pain around me, this is what I'll die for

02 SHOOTING STAR

(5:15)

Johnny was a schoolboy
When he heard his first Beatles song
Love Me Do, I think it was
And from there it didn't take him long
Got himself a guitar, used to play every night
Now he's in a rock and roll outfit
And everything's alright
Don't you know

Johnny told his mama
Hey, ama, I'm goin away
I'm gonna hit the big time
Gonna be a big star someday, yeah
Mama came to the door
With a teardrop in her eye
Johnny said Don't cry, mama
Smile and wave goodbye
Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are

Johnny made a record
Went straight up to number one
Suddenly everyone loved to hear him sing the song
Watchin the world go by, surprisin it goes so fast
Johnny looked around him and said
Damn, I made the big time at last
Don't you know

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know, ah yeah
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
And all the world will love you just as longr
As long as you are
A shooting star

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know, don't you know
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, yeah
And all the world will love you just as long
As long as you are

Johnny died one night, died in his bed
Bottle of whisky, sleeping tablets by his head
Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day
If you listen to the wind you can still hear him play, whoa

Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know, ah yeah
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you don't you don't you don't you don't you know, oh
Don't you know that you are a shooting star, yeah
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
A shooting star
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know that you are a shooting star
Don't you know that you are a shooting star

03 WATCHING OVER ME

(4:28)

I had a friend many years ago, one tragic night he died
The saddest time of my life, for weeks and weeks I cried
Through the anger and through the tears
I've felt his spirit through the years
I'd swear, He's watching me
Guiding me through hard times

I feel it once again, it's overwhelming me
His spirit's like the wind, the angel guarding me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me

We shared dreams like all best friends
Blood brothers at the age of ten
We lived reckless, he paid the price
(But why) Why did he have to die
It still hurts me to this day
Am I selfish for feeling this way
I know he's an angel now
Together we'll be someday

I feel it once again, it's overwhelming me
His spirit's like the wind, the angel guarding me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me

I feel it once again, it's overwhelming me
His spirit's like the wind, the angel guarding me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me

I feel it once again
(I feel it)
It's overwhelming me
(It's overwhelming me)
His spirit's like the wind, the angel guarding me

Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me

Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
He's watching over me

Oh, I know, oh, I know
(I feel it once again)
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
(His spirit's like the wind)
He's watching over me
Oh, I know, oh, I know
(Fade out)

04 ELECTRIC FUNERAL

(4:53)

Reflex in the sky, warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you'd better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation, victims of mad frustration
Burning globe of oxy'n fire, like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down to a cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood, ice melting to flood

Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry water dead
Tearing life away, here's the burning pay

Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral

And so in the sky shines the electric eye
Supernatural king takes, takes the earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings, Hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to Hell, ever trapped in burning cells

05 I DIED FOR YOU

(3:49)

I can't believe this now
This isn't what I planned
I lived and died and now
I just can't understand
With all the love I feel
I could never leave her
No matter what the cost
My soul's the price to see her

Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
Oh when I need you
You're always so far away
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame
I died for you
I gave up everything

The pain was just too much
When I finally saw her
She's happy and in love
In love with my best friend
What makes it hurt so bad
Is that I love them both
And they will never know
For love, I sold my soul

Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
Oh when I need you
You're always so far away
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame
I died for you
I gave up everything

Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
(And it won't go away)
Oh when I need you
(I need you)
You're always so far away
(And I cry for you)
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame
(I nearly died for you)
I died for you
I gave up everything

Oh how I love you
The pain won't go away
Oh when I need you
You're always so far away
I cry for you
Leaving myself to blame

06 THE RIPPER

(2:43)

You're in for a surprise, you're in for a shock
In London town streets, when there's darkness and fire
When you least expect me, and you turn your back
I'll attack

I smile when I'm sneaking
Through shadows by the wall
I laugh when I'm creeping
But you won't hear me at all

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper

You'll soon shake with fear
Never knowing if I'm near
I'm sly and I'm shameless
Nocturnal and nameless
Except for 'The Ripper'
Or if you like 'Jack The Knife'

In your back alley street
Is where we'll probably meet
Underneath a gas lamp
Where the air is cold and damp
I'm a nasty surprise
I'm a devil in disguise
I'm a footstep at night
I'm a scream of a sight

All hear my warning
Never turn your back
On the ripper

The ripper
The ripper

07 COLORS (LIVE)

(5:13)

Walking in the subway, alone late at night
New York City gangs everywhere in sight
Your fell their anger upon you, you feel their hateful eyes
You walk a little faster now, you're fighting for your life

As they walk on closer, their eyes burn down your back
You feel a thousand cries, not prepared for their attack
A mission bell sent sign, it's a sign that you board soon
You've come this far, no turning back
We hope you make it too

Don't expect sympathy
We don't know the word
You walked my turf, insanity
Cause in this place you die

Your life is wasted, your blood is tasted
As it drips down the blade
You didn't make it, you couldn't take it
You walked the subways, you paid
Your money's gone, your clothes they're torn
You're lying in a pool of blood
And though you're leaving, we watch you grieving
Cause in this place you die

Don't expect sympathy
We don't know the word
You walked my turf, insanity
Cause in this place you die

You walk our turf
You're gonna fuckin burn
