01. Wasted Time

You're out huntin' if I am the prize - so roll the ball
I'm like a mad dog, keep fightin' - back against the wall

Come on I'll show you the world you've never seen
Come on I'll teach you good fight is when you win
(So listen up)

Wasted time - Like a poison in my wine, I call it...
The perfect crime - Like a bullet in the back, it search you
Time is runnin' out it hurts you
Goin' down because of wasted time

I'll keep on tryin - NO ONE ALLOWED - I'm out too late
See loosers cyrin' - the sort of thing I use to hate


02. Ten To Life

Sun's comin' up and news starts spreadin' 'round
Yesterday's gone, and you, man I had to gun
down, down, down
Hey Mr. "Know-it-al" - what the hell you gonna do
When a jerk like that takes a swing at you
You'll run for cover, you'll spit him in the eye
You'll pull the trigger! - don't tell me lies

My mother said straight way's built on pride, yeah
If wishes were horses then beggars would ride and
ride, ride, ride
Hey Mr. "Know-it-al" - what the hell you gonna do
When a jerk like that takes a swing at you
You'll call it even, you'll desperatly weep
You'll pull the trigger - and nail that creep

Ten to life - now the crime is done
So long - and I'm too far gone
Ten to life - from a judge so fine
Best man - that your money can buy

Took a shot but I've failed
Now I'm dying in jail
And it cuts like a knife
I'm getting Ten to life

Just like a dream they busted me and put me away
Over the hills and down the slammer to stay
Hey Mr. "Know-it-all" - what the hell you gonna do
When a jerk like that takes a swing at you
You'll turn another cheek, take livin' in disgrace
You'll pull the trigger get off of my face


03. On The Run

I got those wheels for nothing, yeah, some cash to burn
Talk of the town keep movin'
No excuses, no return
Too dumb to steal, too proud to beg - don't shake my tree
I've been around the block, there
Money's tight and nothing's free

An angels face and butchers eyes, a quiet prayer - pack of lies
They call you fate - I call you pain and here I go again

On the run
My journey's just begun, I'm
On the run
Oh God, what have I done
On the run
Like an unforgiven son, I'm
On the run
Like a night I'm chasin' down

I won't take any crap and I'm not comin' back
I'm gonna give you kind of peace of mind, no
Shadow right behind your back
You've pumped it up, you've called me bad news,
Now I'm gone
No pity - no regrets 'bout
Things I've said and things I've done

Look all around the place - law's gone, there's no respect
Don't get to close I've got my reputation to protect
So check it out the place is dead - low life, no fun
You're listen up and listen good
- I'm better off just livin' on the run


04. Clown To The Mirror

Our circus's closed and midnight ghost
Comin' out as lights go down
Old and tired clown, no one is around
Staring at the mirror - now listen

Oh, the show must go on
Lived in the crowd, but dyin' all alone

Clown in the mirror - glitter and scars
Here pleasure and pain look as one
Clown in the mirror toucin' the stars
Flyin' his dream to the sun

What a mask can say? Cry the night away!
Askin' mirror: "Tell me how long?"
Wrigglin' all those years, thorugh the laughter 'n' tears
Don't believe in hearts of stone

Oh, the show must go on
Lived in the crowd, but dyin' all alone

Clown in the mirror - glitter and scars
Here pleasure and pain look as one
Clown in the mirror touchin' the stars
Flyin' his dream to the sun

But the sun will rise, evil took the prize
Something will remind you
Sign of disgrace - this paint in your face


05. Third Stage

[Instrumental]


06. Bodyguard

Tell me more, all about your class
Wasted days - used to move your ass
Make your move, 'cos you're in - I'll pass
Let's clear the air -
Heart of stone and one track mind
Makin' bread on an easy ride
Cover up for a heavy crime
You call it fair

You'll never start learnin', just keep those wheels turnin'
My heart goes on burnin'

What's you gonna do when your world goes down
Small time player on the big time ground
Push it to the limit but the moment's gone
Now I'm out
Money for the blow and you think you're big
Build your muscles but your heart gets weak
Makin' up a dream but it falls apart
I don't wanna be your bodyguard

Listen up - here's something new -
Now I've quit protecting you
Funk yourself 'till you're black and blue
Get off my side
I don't care if you are in or out
Make believe's what it's all about
Be a part of the faceless crowd
I'll be allright

You'll never start learnin', just keep those wheels turnin'
My heart goes burnin'


07. Legion Of The Damned

I'm back in town where I was born
Where street's are so cold and heart's of stone

They told me, kid, you'll see the sun
I did! - through the barrel of the gun
Day one, I understood the game
So much to loose - so much to gain
I'm the one who's left behind
I know I'll make it - through the night

Somebody's gonna die in a desperate fight
No use to hide away the light
Get paid to go so far - no matter who you are
Nobody's gonna run and there's no one to blame
We're under the gun and feel no shame
It's never gonna end - the legion of damned

I've listened to preachers, I've listened to fools'
So many saints, so many rules

It's gonna be - cold day in hell
If ever reason'll break the spell

Somebody's gonna die in a desperate fight
No use to hide away the light
Get paid to go so far - no matter who you are
Nobody's gonna run and there's no one to blame
We're under the gun and feel no shame
It's never gonna end - the legion of damned

They don't understand
I know who I am.


08. Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Call it a day, close down the front
What you don't own, that you don't want
Hitchin' a ride to the land of "A lot"
Please everyone, feel like a slot
You gotta choose, from a pack of lies
Which one will close someone's eyes
You gotta jump over somebody's head
You better watch it every step
It's kinda tricky without a safety net

Here today, gone tomorrow
From time to time it changes the state of mind
Here today, gone tomorrow
If you could get another life, your tears will dry?
You'll see it passin' by

Claim to the top, make it all real
Crash everyone under your wheel
Give it a shot, do it your best
Conscience is clear, put it to rest
Something's wrong, something won't flow
Feel like dressed up and no place to go
Stop buggin' me now when you've failed
You're talkin' fair and out on bail
But every coffin needs a nail


09. Bad Blood

I used to be kind of an easy guy
I tell you now you've sort of crossed the line
You've been in town and you've called me names
You better run back home and get a brand new face

Bad times lost and good times won
Things will get ugly, you're all alone
You will never see the dawn
I don't care, 'cos I am bad to the bone

Bad blood's breakin' your heart
I'm gonna track you down, you knew it right from the start
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
All we got is just a bad, bad blood
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
Because you're trapped in the middle, now you're fallin' apart
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
All we got is just bad, bad blood

You want me down crawlin' on my knees
You wanna watch me suffer slowly by degrees
Hard hittin' stuff, but it won't make me crack
You wanna fight you'll get a bang for the buck

Bad blood's breakin' your heart
I'm gonna track you down, you knew it right from the start
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
All we got is just a bad, bad blood
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
Because you're trapped in the middle, now you're fallin' apart
Bad blood's breakin' your heart
All we got is just bad, bad blood


10. Epilogue

Sailin' away - alone on the ship of time
Wandering 'bout the past - stayin' lost in line
Never endin' story of both day and night
Everything has been lost along the way

Over the years all the friends I've had
Rushed to settle down before they died
In the darkest hour - scream into the night
Everyone who's never seen the light

Someone's lost and someone's found
Someone's movin' 'round and 'round
Someone's pushin' all the way and hits the ground
Someone came and someone's gone
Someone made it, someone not
To see the dawn

Minute by minute, hour by hour's gone
Left me alone, kept me twistin' me 'round and 'round
Every single piece of me will cry for help
Do I have to take that final step?

Someone's lost and someone's found
Someone's movin' 'round and 'round
Someone's pushin' all the way and hits the ground
Someone came and someone's gone
Someone made it, someone not
To see the dawn
