01. Ride Like The Wind

It is the night
My body's weak
I'm on the run
No time for sleep
I've got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again

I was born the son
Of a lawless man
Always spoke my mind
With a gun in my hand
Lived nine lives
Gunned down ten
Gonna ride like the wind

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

Accused and tried and
Told to hang
I was nowhere in sight
When the church bells rang
Never was the kind
To do as I was told
Gonna ride like the wind
Before I get old

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

It is the night
My body's weak
I'm on the run
No time for sleep
I've got to ride
Ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

And I've got such a long way to go
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind


02. Where The Lightning Strikes

Traveling down life's highway
We carry the heavy load
Where will we be, be tomorrow
Somewhere down the road
We won't forget the friends
We made along the way
Soon we'll be together
Together one fine day

Where the lightning strikes
Is where we're gonna be
Stood on the edge of tomorrow
There waits our destiny

I hear the sound of rolling thunder
The beating of a drum
There's many been, been before us
There's many yet to come
We see the day
The new day dawning
It's just begun
We march into the future
Towards the rising sun

(See the light,
hear the thunder,
the new day)

Beyond the wide, the wide horizon
There's many paths to tread
A journey filled, filled with wonder
Is waiting just ahead

Where the lightning strikes
Is where we're gonna be
Stood on the edge of tomorrow
There waits our destiny

Where the lightning strikes
Is where we're gonna be
Stood on the edge of tomorrow
There waits our destiny


03. I Can't Wait Anymore

You keep me waiting, you won't answer your phone
I know you're home but you're not alone
Stop playing games, girl
You're playing with my heart

I was a fool to fall for you lies
It took so long for me to open my eyes
I was a stranger
A stranger from the start

But how long must I stand out in the cold
Can't you see the writing's on the wall
I've been waiting
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore

The more I want you, the less I get
I've been alone since the day that we met
I'm trying hard, girl
I'm trying to forget

I walked the streets, I stood at your door
You gave me nothing and I came back for more
You were a stranger
A stranger to my heart

But how long must I stand out in the cold
Can't you see the writing's on the wall
I've been waiting
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore

I was a fool to fall for your lies
It took so long for me to realize
I was a stranger
A stranger from the start

But how long must I stand out in the cold
Can't you see the writing's on the wall
I've been waiting
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore
I can't wait anymore

I can't wait anymore

04. Calm Before The Storm

My father used to work the seam
Far below the ground
Digging for the coal to melt the steel
But now he stands a lonely man
Idle and forlorn
Just like the iron wheels
That took him down

I can't stop my tears from falling
Falling down like rain
Your words of wisdom
Call to me
I hang my head in shame
We're living in the calm before the storm
We're living in the calm before the storm

He used to be the fisherman
Who sailed the mighty sea
Searching for the harvest from the deep
But now the fleets are rusting hulks
Anchored at the quay
Floating on a cold gray empty sea

I can't stop my tears from falling
Falling down like rain
Your words of wisdom
Call to me
I hang my head in shame
We're living in the calm before the storm
We're living in the calm before the storm

My father was a working man
He gave his life to me
His spirit reaches out through time
And guides my destiny

I can't stop my tears from falling
Falling down like rain
Your words of wisdom
Call to me
I hang my head in shame
We're living in the calm before the storm
We're living in the calm before the storm

We're living in the calm before the storm
We're living in the calm before the storm


05. S.O.S. (Too Bad)

The band played and the cameras turned
As the bottle smashed on her bow
The flagship of the gilded age
Moved slowly out to sea
Never had such luxury
Been seen afloat before
They said she was unsinkable
The fools were wrong once more

S. - S.O.S.
We're sinking fast
You better get to the boats
S. - S.O.S.
The captain cried
For God sakes save your souls

Sailing on into the night
Toward the northern star
Laughter rang, people danced
Under crystal chandeliers
No one sensed the danger
In the unforgiving sea
Steaming into legend
A voyage into history

S. - S.O.S.
We're sinking fast
You better get to the boats
S. - S.O.S.
The captain cried
For God sakes save your souls

2000 tortured souls cry out
Cry out from their sleep
Damned to spend eternity
Travelers of the deep

S. - S.O.S.
We're sinking fast
You better get to the boats
S. - S.O.S.
The captain cried
For God sakes save your souls

[Repeat to end]


06. Song For Emma

Emma stands alone tonight
Staring at the stars
Trying to find the reason why
Her world was torn apart
She's sick and tired of trying to keep
The wolves back from the door

She couldn't stand the pain
Tried to come in from the rain
She was a victim of her heart
Is there no one to blame

What happened to the dreams she had
Visions of her life
Now they're only shadows
Fading in the night
She's given up believing
Turned her back and slammed the door

She couldn't stand the pain
Tried to come in from the rain
She was a victim of her heart
Is there no one to blame
No one to blame
No one to blame
No one to blame

Emma weeps alone tonight
Passion was her crime
No one hears her cry for help
Her back's against the wall
She's standing on the very edge
She's waiting for the fall

She couldn't stand the pain
Tried to come in from the rain
She was a victim of her heart
Victim of her heart

She couldn't stand the pain
Tried to come in from the rain
She was a victim of her heart
Is there no one to blame


07. For Whom The Bell Tolls

A city divided
The West and the East
Tear down the walls
Give them release
People are marching
They're out in the streets
Shouting for freedom
Shouting for peace

How many more children
Must die on the wall
They'll never be free
Until the bell tolls

The toll of the bell
Is Liberty's song
A city united
Is where they belong
A push of the button
And everything's gone
Total destruction
Comes with the bomb

How many more children
Must die on the wall
They'll never be free
Until the bell tolls

How many more children
Must die on the wall
They'll never be free


08. We Are Strong

Life keeps kicking you down
But you come back for more
You take all the knocks
Pick yourself up off the floor
Everyone's looking for someone
To hold in the night
Believe in yourself, stand tall
And take up the fight

We are strong
We will survive
We are strong
We will survive

Somebody gets all the breaks
But it's never you
Maybe today is the day
You'll pull through
Everyone's chasing their dream
At the end of the rainbow
You gotta follow your heart
That's where you have to go

We are strong
We will survive
We are strong
We will survive

Battered and torn
Ride out the storm
Break through the clouds of night
And head on home

Life keeps kicking you down
But you come back for more
You take all the knocks
Pick yourself up off the floor
Everyone's looking for someone
To hold in the night
Believe in yourself, stand tall
And take up the fight

We are strong
We will survive
We are strong
We will survive


09. Jericho Siren

Out of the sky came the sound of thunder
Hiding the sun from your sight
Remember the screams of the Jericho siren
Howling like wolves in the night

Attack! They are coming with the dawn
Attack! Your city's going to fall
Jericho siren
Jericho siren

Run for your lives run with the refugee
They're pounding you blow after blow
Your country is burning the screams of humanity
Rise from ashes below

Attack! They are coming with the dawn
Attack! Your city's going to fall
Jericho siren
Jericho siren

Jericho siren
Jericho siren

Out of the sky came the sound of thunder
Hiding the sun from your sight
Remember the screams of the Jericho siren
Howling like wolves in the night

Attack! They are coming with the dawn
Attack! Your city's going to fall
Jericho siren
Jericho siren

Jericho siren
Jericho siren


10. Red Alert

We were on the Russian border
When the news began to break
Of a nuclear reactor melting down
Sending deadly clouds of dust
Into the atmosphere
Falling down like rain upon the ground

We were laying in the sun
Listening to the radio
When someone said you'd better get inside
We didn't know how serious
The situation was
That many people to the North had died

Red alert, red alert
Screaming in my head
There's something I'm not sure of going down
Red alert, red alert
Screaming in the night
That fallout seems to follow me around

We made out way to Hungary
Got ready for the show
Thinking we were safe there
From the storm
But the deadly cloud was high above
Taken by the wind
Spreading like a plague across the land
A threat you couldn't see
Nothing you could feel
Something evil floating in the air
Look towards the East
For the danger yet to come
For the Earth
We make a silent prayer

Red alert, red alert
Screaming in my head
There's something I'm not sure of going down
Red alert, red alert
Screaming in the night
That fallout seems to follow me around

We were on the Russian border
When the news began to break
Of a nuclear reactor melting down
Sending deadly clouds of dust
Into the atmosphere
Falling down like rain upon the ground

Red alert, red alert
Screaming in my head
There's something I'm not sure of going down
Red alert, red alert
Screaming in the night
That fallout seems to follow me around
