LYRICS * ALBUM




1. CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE [*HOLY DIVER]

Looking inside of yourself
You might see someone you don't know
Maybe it's just what you need
Letting the river in you flow

You can sail away to the sun
And let it burn you while you can
Or walk a long bloody road
Like the hero who never ran

You'll feel it
You'll feel it
You'll feel the rush of it all

Flying away intO the clouds
You know you're loosing your control
Finding you way in the dark
Like some poor forgotten soul

You'll feel it
You'll see it
You'll feel the rush of the city lights
You'll feel it
I see it in your eyes, you're

Caught in the middle
Just like the way you've always been
Caught in the middle
Helpless again

Looking inside of yourself
You might see someone you don't know
Maybe it's just what you need
Letting the river I know that's in you flow

You'll feel it
You'll see it
You'll feel the rush of thunder
You'll feel it
I see it in your eyes, you're

Caught in the middle
Just like the way you've always been
Caught in the middle

2. DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS


Don't talk to strangers
Mmmmh

Don't talk to strangers
'Cause they're only there to do you harm
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real

Don't hide in doorways
You may find the key that opens up your soul
Don't go to heaven
'Cause it's really only hell

Don't smell the flowers
They're an evil drug to make you lose your mind
Don't dream of women
'Cause they only bring you down

Hey you, you know me, you've touched me, I'm real
I'm forever the one that lets you look and see and
Feel me
I'm danger - I'm the stranger

And I, I'm darkness, I'm anger, I'm pain
I am master
The evil song you sing inside your brain
Drive you insane
Don't talk

Don't let them inside your mind, yeah
Run away, run away, go!

No - no

Don't let them in your mind
Protect your soul

Don't dance in darkness
You may stumble and you're sure to fall
Don't write in starlight
'Cause the words may come out real

Don't talk to strangers [Don't talk to strangers]
'Cause they're only there to make you sad
Don't dream of women
'Cause they'll only bring you down
Yeah

Run, run, run, run away!

3. GYPSY


She was straight from Hell
But you never could tell
Cause you were blinded by her light
She could crack your brain
With magic pain
And turn a paler shade of white

(Well) I was on the free
Just me and me
And just about to sail

When I heard the voice
Said you got a choice
The hammer or the nail

You'll be ridin'
You'll be ridin' on the gypsy

Well I rolled the bones
To see who'd own
My mind and what's within

And it's a given rule
That we're all fools
And need to have a little sin

So I'm ridin'
I've been ridin' on the gypsy
On the gypsy queen

She was straight from Hell
But you never could tell
Cause you were blinded by the light

So she cracked my brain
With magic pain
And turned my left around to right, right

So I'm ridin'
Yes I'm ridin'
I'm still ridin' on the gypsy
On the gypsy queen

4. HOLY DIVER


Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away
Holy Diver-yeah

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you

(Look out!)
Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away-get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel-yeah
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel

(Say!)
Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

(Jump-Jump!)
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen-yeah

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

(No-no!)
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away-get away-gotta get away-get away-yeah
Holy Diver
Soul surviver
You're the man who's clean
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
You're the cat in the blue comin' after you
Holy Diver
Holy Diver-yeah-all right
Get away-get away-get away
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
Holy Diver

5. INVISIBLE

If your circle stays unbroken
Then you're a lucky man
Cause it never, never, never has for me

In the palace of the virgin
Lies the chalice of the soul
And it's likely you might find the answer there

She had fourteen years of teenage tears
And never a helping hand
She had fourteen more of rain before
She saw the sight of land
She was a photograph just ripped in half
A smile inside a frown
And the the light, the answer right
Inside her coming down

I can go away
I can leave here
I can be invisible

He was just eighteen and in-between
A lady and a man
His daddie's girl in momma's world
And that was when he ran
You know the word confused has been abused
But that's just what he was
And then the spark inside the dark
The answer came because it said

You can go away
You can leave here
You can be invisible

Well I grew up quick and I felt the kick
Of life upon a stage
So I bought the book and took a fast look
At just the very last page
It was a single word that I'd just heard
From the two that came before
The only way to realle stay
Is to walk right out the door

You can go away
You can leave here
You can be invisible

You can go away
You can leave here
You can be invisible

You can go away
Lord you know it's right to leave here
So I just become invisible

6. RAINBOW IN THE DARK


When there�s lightning - you know it always brings me down
Cause it�s free and I see that it�s me
Who�s lost and never found
I cry out for magic - I feel it dancing in the light
But it was cold - I lost my hold
To the shadows of the night

There�s no sign of the morning coming
You�ve been left on your own
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
A rainbow in the dark

Do your demons - do they ever let you go
When you�ve tried - do they hide -deep inside
Is it someone that you know
You�re just a picture - just an image caught in time
We�re a lie - you and I
We�re words without a rhyme

There�s no sign of the morning coming
You�ve been left on your own
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
Just a rainnbow in the dark

When I see lightning - you know it always brings me down
Cause it�s free and I see that it�s me
Who�s lost and never found
Feel the magic -feel it floating in the air
But it�s fear - and you�ll hear
It calling you beware

There�s no sight of the morning coming
There�s no sight of the day
You�ve been left on your own
Like a rainbow
Like a Rainbow in the Dark
You�re a rainbow in the dark
Just a rainbow in the dark
No sign of the morning
You�re a rainbow in the dark

7. SHAME ON THE NIGHT


Shame on the night

For places I've been, and what I've seen
For giving me the strangest dreams
But you never let me know just what they mean
And oooohhh.... so Shame on the Night... Alright..

And shame on You

You've stolen the day, snatched away
But I saw the sky and I never wanna die
Now you know the reason why I say
Oooohhh... Shame on the Night

You don't care what you've done
So I think I better run
Shame on the sun

For the lights you've sold
I've lost my home
On the Magic Flame, but now I know your name
Oh Lord just go away and tell again
Ooooooohhh.... Oh! Shame on the night!

You dont care what you've done
So I know I better run........( fades )

Shame on the Night

For places Ive been, and what I've seen
For giving me the strangest dreams
You never never never know just what they mean
And ooooohh... Shame on the night

You dont care what youve done
Here I go, Ive got to run.......

Shame on the night
Shame shame on you
Shame on my dreams
Shame on the sun and You
Shame on the night
Well I lost my home on the Magic Flame, but now I know your name
Shame on the night
Shame on you..... Shame on ALL of you
Shame on the night
( evil laughing )

Now im just a worthless Diver...

8. STAND UP AND SHOUT


It's the same old song
You've gotta be somewhere at sometime
They never let you fly

It's like broken glass
You get cut before you see it
So open up your eyes

You've got desire
So let it out
You've got the fire
Stand up and shout-shout

You've got wings of steel
But they never really move you
You only seem to crawl

You've been nailed to the wheel
But never really turning
You know you've got to want it all

You've got desire
So let it out
You've got the fire
Stand up and shout

You are the strongest chain
And not just some reflection
So never hide again

You are the driver
You own the road
You are the fire go on explode

You've got desire
So let it out
You've got the power
Stand up and shout

9. STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART


Hanging from the cobwebs in you mind
It looks like a long, long way to fall
No one ever told me life was kind
I guess I never heard it, never heard it all

Living in a world of make believe
I can hide behind what's real
But wearing your emotions on your sleeve
And they all know what you feel

And here it comes again
Straight through the heart
Straight through the heart

Oh, never tell a secret with your eyes
It's the eyes that let you down
Tell a little truth with many lies
It's the only way I've found

Oh here it comes again
Straight through the heart
Straight through the heart

Shout to the wind
How can you hurt me this way
Oh once it begins
It looks like it's coming to stay

Hanging from the cobwebs in your mind
It looks like a long, long way to fall
No one ever told me life was kind
I Guess I never heard it, never heard it all, no!

But here it comes again
Straight through the heart
Straight through the heart
Straight through the heart

Here it comes again
Straight through the heart
In the middle of the heart
Now don't stand still, they'll get you
Right through your heart

And here it comes, here it comes again
Straight through the heart

10. LIKE THE BEAT OF A HEART [*SACRED HEART]


Tonight we run
We can hide in the dark
When the moon steals the light from the dying sun

Oh run
It's a better thing than we have ever done

There's a beast that lives inside you
And it's screaming to get out

Like the beat of a heart

Don't look behind
Cause a tear that never dies
Can only make you blind

You've got to try
Cause the future's never never gonna die

There's a beast that lives inside you
And it's screaming to get out
It's a storm that's never ending
It's a truth without a doubt

Tonight we run
We can hide in the dark
Till the moon steals the light from the sun

There's a beast that lives inside you
And it's screaming let me out
It's a storm that's never ending
It's a truth without a doubt
Love can be a whisper
But pain will always
Shout to you

Like the beat of a heart
Like the beat of a heart
Like the beat of a heart
Like the beat of a heart

11. I COULD HAVE BEEN A DREAMER [* DREAM EVIL]

Running with the wolf pack
Feel like I'm never coming back
And every time there's sunshine
I'm blind, yeah

I am everybody
And everyone that I know is me
Everyone that I know won't see

I could have been a dreamer
I could have been a shooting star
I could have been a dreamer, yeah

I'm another number
And you know the numbers must agree
But every time the wind blows
I can't fly - why?

We take away tomorrow
And never see the end of today
Lock it up and send it away - forever

I could have been a dreamer
I could have been a shooting star
I could have been a dreamer
Cause dreams are what we are
I could have been a dreamer

Running with the wolf pack
Feel like I'm never coming back
But maybe that was sunshine
That I saw

I've heard about a rainbow
I've heard it makes you crazy
I think I'm goin' crazy
Crazy cause I see

I could have been a dreamer
I could have been a shooting star
I could have been a dreamer
Cause dreams are what we are

I could have been a dreamer
I could have been the one to fly
I always could have been a dreamer
Cause dreamers never die, no!

I could have been a dreamer
Dreamer
I could have been a dreamer
Dreamer
I could have been a dreamer
Dreamer
I could have been a dreamer

12. JESUS, MARY AND THE HOLY GHOST [* STRANGE HIGHWAYS]

Prime time
Nursery rhyme
Did you see the teacher?
Sister
Black and white
What she's gonna to do?

They say eye for eye, tooth for tooth
But don't hurt your brother
Crossroad overload

Oh, I, I testify
They just showed me Mary
She was stoned, stoned danger zone
There was nothing in her eyes

And then there there in the air
Nailed to the cross was Jesus
Crossroad overload

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray my soul to keep away
From the holy spirit, holy ghost
They're hiding in the dark

Oh nightmare electric chair
You might not get to heaven
Bad boys shout for joy
Watch him to cry

Prime time
Nursery rhyme
Love just needs religion
Crossroad overload

13. HUNTER OF THE HEART [ ANGRY MACHINES]



Hey liar, tell me your intentions are good
Knowing it could be a lie
I see how you rise
To question the eyes of anyone who promises pain

Contagious, something like a virus of love
Making the pleasure seem real

Another killing by the villain
Another body on the ground
Here comes the master of destruction again
I knew you from the start
Hunter of the heart

Cat crazy, never the predictable one
Asleep in the sun now the strike
Possession today, then send it away
After all the joys in the taking

Another beating by the villain
Another angel fallen down
Here comes the master of destruction again
Perfect for the part
Hunter of the heart

Another burning by the devil
And another diamond turned to glass
Here comes the master of destruction again
I knew you from the start
Hunter of the heart
Hunter of the heart

14. KILLING THE DRAGON


Silence - we hunt for the queen
Sign of the cross
And pray in - between

Look by the light of the day
She's hiding till dark
Waiting to play hey - hey

Something's taken a child
And it all must end
Time to be killing the dragon again

Silence - we'll hunt for the lord
He takes crimson and gold
Gave ice to the cold

Oh, to be never afraid
Of wolves at the door
Howling for more

More's been empty for years
And it all must end
Time to be killing the dragon again

Kneel and behold your new king
Digital dreams
And wonderful things to tease you

Small gods with electrical hearts
And it all will end
Time to be killing the dragon


VIDEO


15. STAR SPANGLED BANNER


Oh say can you see,
by the dawn's early light,
what so proudly we hailed,
at the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
through the perilous fight,
o'er the ramparts we watched,
were so gallantly streaming.

And the rocket's red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof through the night,
that our flag was still there.

Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave,
o'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave...
