HEART OF GOLD

He is a man forced to live with the rats But he is dying for a smile from you He is a man without a home in his life Is that a reason to walk on the line It's like a game - don't mess around Don't be a fool so just go on No life of double standard what he's looking for Only a dream of tender delight No more a bloody fool in this dirty town So get away take your own line Hard is the game - don't turn around You make the rules so hold your ground He's got a heart of gold The brain to realize he leads the better life He's got a heart of gold So free your mind - live with a smile Heart of gold - just like a diamond in the rough He is dying for a touch from you No more a bloody fool in this god damned town Please be strong for just one time So play this game and move the pawns It's up to you so just go on He's got a heart of gold The heart to free his soul, the heart to reach the goal Sweet little a heart of gold So free and fine - live with a smile Live with a smile on your face Hard is the game - don't turn around No more a fool so just go on He's got a heart of gold The brain to realize he leads the better life He's got a heart of gold So free your mind - live with a smile He's got a heart of gold The heart to free his soul, the heart to reach the goal Sweet little a heart of gold So free and fine - live with a smile Just live with a smile on your face He is dying for a smile from you So just go on - go on - go on With your heart of gold Don't turn around You make the rules so hold your ground Sweet little a heart of gold Sweet little a heart of gold

BLITZ OF LIGHTNING

When it's nice and easy He can handle the fear He thought he was burning With all the pain he had Then his smile was gone He didn't know where he was Can't you hear him cry This time he is alive He's out to seek and find To find his own style in time No more retreat but fight So be aware and watch the night, watch the night Hello world, here I am Don't you fool me again I'm like a blitz of lightning So get outta my way Every night and day The lightning strikes again Then he came to the point He could believe in his life A different soul was born He must no more deny But he wants to forget His old rotten desires No more pain - no more cries All those things are behind He's out to seek and find To find his own style in time No more retreat but fight So be aware and watch the night, watch the night Hello world, here I am Don't you fool me again I'm like a blitz of lightning So get outta my way Every night and day The lightning strikes again Hello world, here I go Don't fool me, oh no I'm like a rolling thunder The story's been told And my blood runs cold It won't be all the same It will never be the same again Hello world, here I am Don't you fool me again I'm like a blitz of lightning So get outta my way Every night and day The lightning strikes again Hello world, here I go Don't fool me, oh no I'm like a rolling thunder Now the die is cast Chances are vast It won't be all the same Hello world, here I am Don't you fool me again I'm like a blitz of lightning The story's been told And my blood runs cold It won't be all the same Hello world...

SYSTEM OF LIFE

Now it's time to look in your eyes You're so much better it's no surprise It's like a mirror is watching you Maybe the word's been broken - don't be no fool Following the lights you see like a rolling train Yesterday is gone - tomorrow's in your hands Something you've had is gone - don't wish it back Let it go - don't run away - it's nothing you'll forget You know the rules don't need no warning There's only one way to find the clue Inside you so let it go System of life - be the hunted or the hunter System of life System of life - it's always by your side System of life - the one and only way to live in harmony Don't paint a picture full of love and hate Paradise is here - but exceptions prove the rules Sometimes it feels just like a dream becoming true Close your eyes - look inside - it will never be the same 'Cause for your life there ain't no warning So stand up and fight to find the clue So watch out you live and learn It's the System of life - be the broken or the breaker System of life It's the System of life - it's always real and true System of life - the one and only way to live in harmony Yeah - yeah Oh, it's the System of life - be the hunted or the hunter System of life It's the System of life - it's always by your side System of life - the one and only way to live in harmony It's the System of life - be the taken or the taker System of life It's the System of life - it's always real and true System of life

FACELESS WORLD

Listen to me - this is a warning You have to wake up out of this dream Don't be a member of this lifestyle, please I hear the beat of your heart So better watch them - don't be frightened Can't you feel it - can't you see it this time So many things appear like wonders Be shameless my friend - save what you've got Welcome to this crazy world You cannot blame everyone See the stars and see the rainbows - see it all Don't turn away - you're all you've got In a faceless world You can run - but you can't hide It's yourself who waits for you inside So believe me it's not evil To break out of this spell Don't be wasting a whole lifetime Don't betray yourself anymore So hear me calling - this is a warning When you feel it - don't lose it this time One day you will be way stronger Be clever old friend, cause then you'll be free Welcome to this crazy world You cannot blame everyone Dreams can come true See the stars and see the rainbows - open your eyes Don't turn away - you're all you've got In a faceless world You can run - but you can't hide It's yourself who waits for you inside So hear me calling Don't wanna mistreat anymore Just one desire I want to break this spell No more wondering I wanna be clever this time I hear your warning I just wanna be myself Saw the stars and all the rainbows - you've seen it all You realized - you're all you've got In the faceless world You tried to run - but couldn't hide It was you who found yourself inside So hear me calling Stop betraying yourself Don't waste all your lifetime You've been mistreated so many times In this faceless world You've got to break out of this spell Listen to your heartbeat Be restless my friend Just one desire I just wanna be myself

STRANGER

Don't spend your life like a dime I thought you are not for hire Stand for your rights - don't look at the past I don't know - I don't care - my brain's spinning 'round like a wheel Don't feel like a stranger Don't feel like a stranger So turn around leave your feelings behind Just calm down keep the devil inside It's like a stone lying in your head You never know - this time it could be real And then you'll realize Maybe you're wrong this time Do something in your life And then it'll work out Don't feel like a stranger Everything can be real Don't feel like a stranger Move on like a wheel So you don't know - what is the reason It's up to you to sell your life so easy I thought you were learning from the past Can't you feel deep inside when you're breaking the chains And then you'll realize Maybe you're wrong this time Do something in your life And then it'll work out Don't feel like a stranger Everything can be real Don't you know you're in danger Move on like a wheel And when it works out Don't turn around Something is in your heart So let it free - oh yeah Oh yeah Don't feel like a stranger Listen to me - everything can be real Don't feel like a stranger Move on like a wheel Don't feel like a stranger Everything can be so real Don't you know you're in danger Move on like a wheel Don't feel like a stranger...

RESTRICTED AREA

High voltage in the air No way to know it's good or bad Don't try to trick it down Otherwise you could be dead So just look out It may be mean Just can't be too afraid of this machine A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night Restricted area Your brain's been mesmerized And in your mind this place is full of steel, so full of steel So shift to overdrive Crash away the gang with the men from another space So be aware Just leave the scene The world's been metallized by this machine A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night The world's been metallized A hole in the middle of the night Restricted area A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night It's a restricted area Hold on - hold on - hold on Your brain's been mesmerized A hole in the middle of the night In the middle of the night You're heavy metallized A hole in the middle of the night

LIVING ON A FRONTLINE

Bad days are coming Back into my head They're looking for trouble, is that alright You know you've seen them before And now they're turning Into the deepest nights Shadows on the wall - don't surrender at all You're not alone this time Do or die - you'll always be on the run Like a soldier in time - rain or shine Aces high - you'd better be on the ball Don't move outta the way - stand for what you've gotta say We're living on a frontline Always trying not to go We're living on a frontline It's much more than enough this time We're living on a frontline Now you start searching For a better life Better not look back - go straight ahead Just be yourself all the time Do or die - you'll always be on the run Like a soldier in time - rain or shine Aces high - you'd better be on the ball Don't move outta the way - stand for what you've gotta say We're living on a frontline Always trying not to go We're living on a frontline It's much more than enough this time We're living - living on a frontline Always trying not to go We're living on a frontline It's much - it's much too much this time Go ahead this time Ah, we're living on a frontline Ah, it's a bad game I've told you before So stay away from the frontline And your friends next door You say you're lonely But I don't want them no more But one day - you're gonna see They're gonna disappear We're living on a frontline Always trying not to go We're living on a frontline It's much more than enough this time We're living - living on the frontline Always trying not to go We're living on a frontline It's much - it's much too much this time On a frontline

TRIP TO NOWHERE

I was born in a backstreet Where people live a dirty life Of course it was different most of the time But it was not my fault A life in hell I saw it every morning Dreams'n'desires Can't hide myself anymore I tried to live in heaven But this dream did not come true I tried to live in heaven Next time I'll try to knock on this door again I've been hunting Day and night Oh, I've been losing Please, hold me tight Why am I here now And what can I do You tell me you're sorry You know it ain't true I tried to live in heaven But this dream did not come true I tried to live in heaven Next time I'll try to knock on this door again You know what I mean 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again Now I'm taking my chances Everyday, everynight You know what I'm talking about, man No more backstreet life A life in hell I saw it every morning Dreams and desires Don't hide myself anymore I tried to live in heaven But this dream did not come true I tried to live in heaven Next time I'll try to knock on this door again You know what I mean 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again I made it out of this hell you know what I mean I tried to live in heaven But this dream did not come true I tried to live in heaven Next time I'll try to knock on this door again You know what I mean 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again 'Cause when you throw in the cards Life goes on and on You're on a trip to nowhere You'd better reach for the stars Life goes on and on and on and on again 'Cause when you throw in the cards...

BORN TO RUN

You're back to win To start again Searching for the power That you've had before The tables turned Mistakes you've made Stop telling lies - no angeleyes Just look straight ahead Don't be afraid to roll the dice Open up your eyes So hit the road and memorize You're not for sale You're born to run So take it from the start You know you're born to run Don't lose your heart Now you're calling the shots So you'd better watch out Don't you understand you can't deny What you have done before But don't you know Your time will come Forget the past - just head out Head out for your aims And in the end you'll see the light Tearing up the night So let it shine and realize You're not for sale You're born to run So take it from the start You know you're born to run Don't waste your time and realize that you're You're born to run Tomorrow's here today 'Cause you're the number one You're leading the way So just believe me You'd better watch out Your time will come Mark my words Think about it I wanna tell ya You're born to run So take it from the start You know you're born to run Don't waste your time and realize that you're You're born to run Tomorrow's here today 'Cause you're the number one Fight the fight - light the light - realize you're born to run

CAN'T GET ENOUGH

Again it's around seven I'm burning like a candlelight I don't know where I'm going But I'm ready for this night You'd better run for cover Before I start to smile No way there's time for wasting Never walk in a line Never walk in a line Oh yeah And I just keep going Forget these boring times And I'm hungry for desire No way to live in a line You'd better run for cover Before I start to smile No way there's time for wasting Never walk in a line Reckless and mean I'm ruling the scene - I never get enough Acting the night - I'm gone with the light - I can't get enough I never get enough Again it's around seven I'm burning like a candlelight I don't know where I'm going But I'm ready for this night Reckless and mean I'm ruling the scene - I never get enough Acting the night - I'm gone with the light - I can't get enough Reckless and mean I'm ruling the scene - I never get enough Acting the night - I'm gone with the light - I can't get enough I never get enough

UNSPOKEN WORDS

My thoughts are going back - back to the time When I was young to live a life A life of lies - full of lies Then you came into my life And you've changed so many things That I've done before - that I've done before Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way You treated me the right way You always said don't give up Some day you will see what I have done And when I start thinking about me Then I find out You did it right - just right Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way Unspoken words - so many unspoken words They cannot lie to me anymore Unspoken words - words so full of meaning They cannot lie, they're from inside Unspoken words Back to start again - we're working still together More than ever - better than before Better than before Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way - don't leave me this way Unspoken words - so many unspoken words They cannot lie to me anymore Unspoken words - words so full of meaning They cannot lie, they're from inside All those unspoken words so many, many unspoken words They cannot lie to me anymore, oh yeah Without you I've been so alone Don't leave me this way, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Unspoken words...

FUTURE LAND

It's a nightmare leading out of the dark Tears running out of my eyes Wake up and bring the truth into your life I can't stand it anymore All those nightmares - endless despair Walk away from this dream Show me the way out of the darkness Into a land of light See the world with different eyes There's something true in this life And I start getting closer You'd better not fall behind Don't take me to tomorrow Don't take me to the future land Don't take me to tomorrow Don't take me to the future land And now I've had enough of this ride Just let me out of this game So many reasons to step out and pay Everyday it's the same No more hiding - deep inside me The pictures start to be real You'd better listen to your heartbeat again I know I wanna be free See the world with different eyes There's something true in this life And I start getting closer You'd better not fall behind Don't take me to tomorrow (oh, no) Don't take me to the future land (no lying - anymore) Don't take me to tomorrow(mmmh, I) Don't wanna see the future land Don't take me to tomorrow (into the land of light) Don't take me to the future land Don't trade your life for sorrow (reach out for the paradise) Stop longing for the future land So many feelings deep in your heart Don't you believe in this dream So don't hide them deep inside you Let them out this time, yeah Don't take me to tomorrow (no lying anymore) Don't take me to the future land (oh no) Don't take me to tomorrow (don't take me away) Don't take me to the future land (without day or night) Don't trade your life for sorrow (oh no) Stop longing for the future land (for the land of light) It's a nightmare leading out of the dark Tears running out of my eyes Wake up and bring the truth into your life I can't stand it anymore All those nightmares - endless despair Walk away from this dream Show me the way out of the darkness Into a land of light Don't take me to tomorrow Don't take me to the future land Don't take me to tomorrow Don't wanna see the future land Don't trade your life for sorrow...
