01. Heretic (The Lost Child)

These fits of depression are torturing me
The lives that I seen won't breath again
A sad child of madness, they'll never be free
Born again to die, the agonies begin
And soldiers keep coming - like warriors they die
But gang land's alive when mothers cry
Cause hate's blind addictions, a killing machine
And it burns on the fuel of shattered lives - lost child, lost child

The seeds of all evil are sown in their minds
And harvest the sad fields of woe
Cause dead boys are martyr
That live on forever
But now it's too late for their souls
Standing on sanities too fragile edge
And worship the "Lord of Flies"
And wade through the slaughter
You've made of the brother
And drown in his blood then when he dies

You see in their eyes
They're the lost child
See in their eyes
You see in their eyes
They're the lost child
See in their eyes

Don't turn out the lights
Cause there's demons in the night
And they prey on the fears in us all
They hide inside and wait
And they shun the light of day
The screams in their dreams fill us all

Children of a night
Such a sad tune they rhyme
The bloody boys that sing a wicked song
And for all of them they're just memories in the wind

Rise and see
It's the down of insanity
Keeper of the gates of fire
And the Heretic has said
You don't have to be afraid
Till I - till I come to get ya
And child in time
On the swords edge you ride
And cast a spell of Heresy
And die in vain
Like a wild dog in chains
And no-one can save
Or set you free


02. The Real Me

Lyrics by Pete Townsend
I went back to the doctor
To get another shrink.
I sit and tell him about my weekend,
But he never betrays what he thinks.

Can you see the real me, doctor?

I went back to my mother
I said, "I'm crazy ma, help me."
She said, "I know how it feels son,
'Cause it runs in the family."

Can you see the real me, mother?

The cracks between the paving stones
Look like rivers of flowing veins.
Strange people who know me
Peeping from behind every window pane.
The girl I used to love
Lives in this yellow house.
Yesterday she passed me by,
She doesn't want to know me now.

Can you see the real me, can you?

I ended up with the preacher,
Full of lies and hate,
I seemed to scare him a little
So he showed me to the golden gate.

Can you see the real me preacher?
Can you see the real me doctor?
Can you see the real me mother?
Can you see the real me?


03. The Headless Children

Father come save us from this
Madness we're under
God of creation are we blind?
Cause some here are slaves
That worship guns that spit thunder
The children that you've made
Have lost the minds

This monster that we call the earth
Is bleeding
Cause the children have been
Left along too long
This thing that we've made is fat
And feeds on the hate
Of the millions that it's taught to sing
The song

The headless children
The screams that fill the night
Fill the night fill the night fill the night
Oh the headless children
The madness steals the light
Steals the light steals the light steals the light

Time bombs in the hands of all the wicked warbabies
Light the fuse of temptation and we all burn
Four horsemen sit high up in the saddle
And waiting are ride the bloody trail of no return

Sleeping in the arms of a nightmare and
Wake to find we've been away too long
This Frankenstein of flash
Stitched together back from death
And preying on the souls of everyone

The headless children
The screams that fill the night
Fill the night fill the night fill the night
Oh the headless children
The madness steals the light
Steals the light steals the light steals the light


04. Thunderhead

Oh thunderhead, you're a man with a problem
Ah - old habits too hard to break
And soon you'll be dead from that poison that you're on
Oh - the venom that's worse that the snakes

And I say, hey, hey, hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey: white thunder
Needles and pins a dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
A gun to your head, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt

Oh thunderhead, tie it off you're in heaven'
Oh you'll drown in the Heroin flood
And die in your bed and sweat and detox
You are leaving this world
Oh your epitaph's written in blood
And I said

Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey - white thunder
Needles and pins
A dead man you're in so deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey - white thunder
A gun to your head, the trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt

Killer - ya scream and ya bleed
Thriller - you spread you disease
Watch out, watch out

Thunderhead - yes I am your master
Will you steal for me - yes
Will you ruin yourself and give everything unto me - yes
Will you lie, cheat, deceive, dishonor everything
And even kill thy brother for me, yes - yes
Will you worship only me as your true master. Yes
Thunderhead, will you die for me, yes master

Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
Needles and pins
A dead man you're in
So deep you'll never climb out
Hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey
Oh no, hey-hey-hey white thunder
A gun to your head
The trigger you're dead
It's quicker and there ain't no doubt, no no


05. Mean Man

A tattooed madman, I am hell on wheels
Born a wicked child left alone in the fields
My father was the wind, my mother was fire
Raised by the wolves and I grew up wild
A kamakazi man, a hollering "Banzai"
Never crash and born, never donna die
Cannibal is me, ya squeal and shout
I chew ya up and spit ya out

Storms a c-c-coming and it's gonna be me
Here comes Trouble, with a capital "T"

Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man, riding the wind
And know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way
All the way

Chewbacca in the rye
The water of fire,
A terror in the flesh, a killer for hire
California man
I'm white line,"Homer"
The unruly one they call the "Blond Bomber"

Scooter gypsy, I'm a renegade
An orphan of the road
A live hand grenade
Never gonna quit before my time
When the moon gets high, then I'll be blind

Mad dog 20-20's king
I drink that stuff and start getting obscene

Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man
I gotta scream that's what I am
All the way all the way
Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way, all the way

I'm a motorcycle man
Don't never give a damn
I lie when the truth serves better
The Marquis De Sade
I cheat and steal and rob
A Heavy Metal creature

Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man
I gotta scream, that's what I am
All the way, all the way
Cause I'm a mean mother fucking man
Riding the wind and know I'll be damned
All the way, all the way


06. Neutron Bomber

He came from the East
They called him a beast
This king of terror insane
Neutron Ronnie, the people would whisper his name

Dangerous and mad
A torch in his hand
Spread fire by the light of the moon
Oh, pyrotechnical wizard of doom

Oh no here comes Ronnie
Ah the boy with the flame
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
Ah till he dies it'll burn in his eyes

A phantom so cool
A midnight would rule
And molotov cocktail would rain
Babies screamin'
And house would go up in flames

When next Ronnie goes, nobody knows
But inside him's where Lucifer hides
Oh, he's the boy with the bombs at his side

Oh no here comes Ronnie, ah the boy with the flame
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
Ah till he dies the burning in his eyes

Oh no here comes Ronnie
Ah the boy with the flame
Ah his life has been burning inside
Oh no no here comes Ronnie
Ah the bombers insane
As till he dies the burning in his eyes


07. Mephisto Waltz

[Instrumental]


08. Forever Free

I ride all alone and can't see
The road to nowhere anymore
And shadows whispers are calling me
To forbidden forests by the shore
And there she fell, deep in the night
One breath away from heavens light
And she said - don't cry for me I'm leaving you
The wind cries her name in the breeze
But I can't hold her anymore /no, no, no/

Some fallen angel had come to me
And fell too heavy on my soul
And stole from me the love that I heard
Lords of time say never die
And she sad - don't cry for me, because I'll be

Riding the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free
I'll ride the wind forever free
High in the wind forever free

Forever in my hearts a fire, a fire burning
I wake up nights and hear her crying, crying my name


09. Maneater

Turn loose the lightning metal hawgs
And set me free
Turn loose my crying metal hearts'
1200 C.C.
Cold steel forever I'm gonna ride
And burn the flame
That breaths the fire - breaths the fire
And can't be tamed

Thunder rolling down the highway
These wheels of fire eat you alive - them
Outlaw riders going my way
A Harley child until I die

Maneater - born free I ride
Maneater - wings of freedom
Born the line for metal minds

Run to the scorching desert sun
V-twins will scream
Into the blackness of the night, at twisting speed
High on the hawg I'm riding on
Engines explode
It feels like thunder it's breathing fire
It rules the road
Milwaukee metal on the highway
These wheels of fire eat you alive - them
Outlaw riders going my way
Only the strong here will survive

Maneater - born free I ride
Maneater - wings of freedom
Born the line for metal minds

Them bad boys riding on forever
When they die they ride in Harley heaven

Maneater - born free I ride
Maneater - wings of freedom
Born the line for metal minds

Maneater - born free I ride
Maneater - wings of freedom
Born the line for metal minds


10. Rebel In The F.D.G.

I live my life like
A shot in the wind
If tomorrow don't come I know
I stole me share of fun for me
Cause I'm too fast, too rad
I'm going wasted when I go
The cost of freedom's never free
It's the deep six it's my fix
It's my best friend
Cause it's my way, or the highway
I tell ya it's the living end

I'm a rebel in the F.D.G.
And I say only God in the heaven knows
I'm a bad child, come and love me
And I say oh, yeah
I'm a rebel in the F.D.G.
And I say only God in the heaven knows
I'm a bad child, come and love me
And I say oh, yeah

If you're fast ya might last
Show ya gotta go
A wild one in the decadent zoo
Ooh, I lick up all my seven deadly sins
Cause I'm too hot, too cool
I might burn, but I'll burn in the wind
It's the deep six it's my fix
Cause it's my way or the highway
I'll tell ya what I am

Oh I, I feel the heat and I
I touch the flesh and bone
And I feel the kiss of fire
Too fast to live, too fast to die
Mom and Daddy say,"I'm dancing in the fire"

Sometimes I feel like an animal in a cage
I pace back and forth, and look around
For something to sink my teeth into
But nobody knows what's going on inside me


11. Locomotive Breath

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,
Runs the all-time loser,
Headlong to his death.
He feels the piston scraping --
Steam breaking on his brow --
Thank God, he stole the handle and
The train won't stop going --
No way to slow down.
He sees his children jumping off
At the stations -- one by one.
His woman and his best friend --
In bed and having fun.
He's crawling down the corridor
On his hands and knees --
Old Charlie stole the handle and
The train won't stop going --
No way to slow down.
He hears the silence howling --
Catches angels as they fall.
And the all-time winner
Has got him by the balls.
He picks up Gideon's Bible --
Open at page one --
God stole the handle and
The train won't stop going --
No way to slow down.


12. For Whom The Bell Tolls

The tarot is fate, said the Gypsy Queen
And she beckoned me, to glimpse my future she'd seen
She said "Try to run away, don't know what to do
Do you feel it's real do you believe it's true?
When I lay the card down will it turn up the fool?
Will it turn up sorrow? Is there one there for you?"

For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me
For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me

Illusions are real, and the dreams that you feel
I'll come back to you and voice the scream in your ear
She said "Try to run away, don't know what to do
Do you feel it's real do you believe it's true?
When I lay the card down will it turn up the fool?
Will it turn up sorrow? Is there one there for you?"

For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me
For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for me


13. Lake Of Fools

Fifty million miles below my feet
There's a lot of people
I'd like to meet
There's theives and killers
Harlots and whores
All were misguided
But not any more...

So I see their fate
In the black of the doom
Waves of fire in the storm
Creatures howl at the moon
They're screaming intensly
Their cries are heard for miles
A prince resides there
Lake of fools, burning wild


14. War Cry

Oh I, I was marked from the day I was born
A rebel and I was the one who I am
My father could not understand the fire in me
There was, there was times I was crazy for real
So crazy I just couldn't feel, no, no, no
Confusion would stand in the door and tell me lies
But now I stand on my feet so alive
I'm a metal warrior, I need their cries, War Cry

I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, come take a stand
Together we'll let out a cry
I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, come take a stand
Together we'll never say die

Oh I, I did not choose, the music chose me
I was christened and destined to be who I am
The one that they said would be damned
A hellion child that...?
I stand at the mirror and sing
I dare to be different and dream, now I am
Big thunder that rolls on the land forever wild
But still, this feeling inside never die
I'm a metal warrior, I need their cries, War Cry

I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, come take a stand
Together we'll let out a cry
I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, Come take a stand
Together we'll never say die

Raise your fist and support your rebel outlaws
Cause nobody rides for free
The freedom we lose today, you lose tomorrow
Because freedom means something to us...

I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, come take a stand
Together we'll let out a cry
I'm a soldier, soldier, a soldier of fortune
Ahh, come take a stand
Together we'll never say die
