Revolution, we're the solution
We're gonna take it to the overload
Rebel radical retribution
We're here to get what we are owed

I think my head, my head is gonna explode
I think my head is gonna explode
I think my brain is gonna overload
I think my head is gonna explode

We're unified in a sonic nation
Leave all the fakers and the lies behind
You want to meet us in a confrontation
Our psychic weapons will destroy your mind

I think my head, my head is gonna explode
I think my head is gonna explode
I think my brain is gonna overload
I think my head is gonna explode

Now is the time yeah
To do it right
Take no more lies
Make up your mind yeah

The witch doctors and the politicians
They rule by fear and try to keep us down
But they can't see that these conditions
Will spark the fury of the underground
I see it on the global transmission
It's almost ready to overload
I see a dark apocalyptic vision
One minute now the world is gonna explode

I think my head, my head is gonna explode
I think my head is gonna explode
I think my brain is gonna overload
I think my head is gonna explode
I think my head, my head is gonna explode
I think my head is gonna explode
I think my brain is gonna overload

. . .



That summer I did nothing
Just sleeping, thinking and hanging around
Left the dark streets of September
As the air was cooling down
Woah yeah it was cooling down

I need the sunshine in the morning
I'm heading for the open road
Sunshine in the morning
Lord you gotta let it flow

Ever since I lost her
Seems the more I learn, the less I know
Everyday I think about her
But if I look back I'll turn to stone
To stone, woah yeah gonna turn to stone

I need the sunshine in the morning
I'm heading for the open road
Sunshine in the morning
Lord you gotta let it flow

I need the sunshine in the morning
Yeah I gotta feel its glow
Sunshine in the morning
Lord you gotta let it flow

I'm heading for the open road x8

It hit me without warning
I was left out on my own
The sad times they were forming
I went through them alone

A new day it is dawning
I feel the pain is gone
The open world is calling
And I am moving on

I need the sunshine in the morning
I'm heading for the open road
Sunshine in the morning
Lord you gotta let it flow

I need the sunshine in the morning
Yeah I gotta feel its glow
Sunshine in the morning

She's giving me the evil eye
A poison smile
Asking if I will stay
A while
I made a promise to the night
In blood
I signed
The line

Giving me the evil eye
I can't deny
Oh that girl, she's so damn fine
Divine, so fine
Bound through all space and time
Shivers running down my spine
Giving me the evil eye
She's mine

Sinister parasite
She occupies
Every little space inside
My mind
Corrupt thoughts here enshrined
So clandestine
Sublime

Giving me the evil eye
I can't deny
Oh that girl, she's so damn fine
Divine, so fine
Bound through all space and time
Shivers running down my spine
Giving me the evil eye
She's mine

Love is pain and love is blind
You don't know when you cross that line
Pretty soon you're intertwined
With this girl
Thunder rolls and lightning strikes
But you don't know what it's like
To be all torn up inside
In this world

Giving me the evil eye
I can't deny
Oh that girl, she's so damn fine
Divine, so fine
Bound through all space and time
Shivers running down my spine
Giving me the evil eye
She's mine; all mine
Promised to a valentine
Bound through all space and time
Giving me the evil eye

. . .



Now you're a clone
With a heart of stone
Synthetic soul
Brainwashed and cold

You're just a clone
Got no control
Forced in a mold
Processed and sold

Hey!
You know i find it frightning
How you change just as fast as lightning

You fell from grace
Leavin no trace
You've been replaced
You're name erased

Hey!
It's just self-destruction
You never listened to my instructions

Shame, shame, shame, shame

Shame
That everyones the same
I thought u stood alone
We're different from the clones

You were a flash of white
A major ride
You're making time
Now im outta sight

For I have seen
What could've been
A very dream
A prophecy

Hey!
Now there's no use waiting
Everything is disintegrating

Shame
Everyone's the same
I thought u stood alone
We're different from the clones

I thought u were the true
Exception to the rule
But the truth is cruel

Clones, clones, clones, clones
Clones, clones, clones, clones

Yeah!

Hey!
Now theres no use waiting
Everything is disintegrating

Shame
Everyone's the same
I thought you stood alone
We're different from the clones

I thought u were the true
Exception to the rule

. . .



Behold this night, still and clear
You look here just like an angel sleeping
I wish I could ease your fears
I would catch the diamond tears you're weeping
In your eyes I would hide
By your side I could defy
The forces tearing us apart
But reality, as it seems
Looking back, is that our dream
Was fated from the start

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate

I'll remain in your hold
Body, mind, heart and soul
As long as I breathe
Though consequence takes its toll
All is out of our control
That's how it will be
So close your eyes my young bride
Listen to me one last time
There's something I have to say
When your faith turns to despair
Always will my love be there
And never fade away

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate
You can't save us
You can't save us

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
The poison's in our veins
It's true
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you

Forever true

. . .


Not feeling, broken-hearted
Feeling just like when it started
Awake, it's a new day
No more heartache
Breaking away

Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream

Sky blue, nothing to lose
Girl I want to, get to know you
It's come from out of nowhere
All is changing, it's in the air

Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream

In a free-fall out of the blue
In a dream world out of the blue
Into the sunset out of the blue
In the slipstream out of the blue

Do you feel, what I feel, Is it real?
Can't conceal, so unreal, what I feel
Yeah! out of the blue

Not feeling, broken hearted
Feeling just like when it started

Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream
Out of the blue, into the slipstream

As I walk in the dirty rain
Acid seeping through my brain
I'm never gonna crack
There can be no turning back
Water runs down the windowpane
As she sucks on a sugarcane
You can see it in my face
Staring into outer space
We're renegades

We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

And it feels like a dirty dream
Like I'm walking to the guillotine
Feel the voodoo in my brain
Sipping on a hurricane
How's it feel to be a freak?
Oh so pale and so unique
To walk lonely in the rain
Unashamed that we are not the same

We belong in the gutter dreaming
Sing along, at the stars we're screaming
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

How does it feel to be alone?
Set apart from all the clones
We're the ones who can't be tamed
Who go against the grain
Alright

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing
Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

How does it feel to be a renegade?
We're condemned for we are not the same
Visionaries in the cavalcade
No we can't be tamed

Original Lyrics
As I walk in the dirty rain
Acid seeping through my brain
Like a tragic paperback
How long until it cracks?

Water runs down the windowpane
As she sucks on a sugarcane
Down a lonely cul-de-sac
And I know there's no way back

We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

And it feels like a dirty dream
Like I'm walking to the guillotine
Feel the voodoo in my brain
Sipping on a hurricane

How does it feel to be a freak?
Oh so pale and so unique
To be travelling on your own
To be spat on and disowned

We belong in the gutter singing
Sing along, at the stars we're singing

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

How does it feel to be alone?
Stand apart from all the clones
To walk lonely in the rain
To be looked on with disdain

All your senses overthrown
As you walk to the unknown
We're the ones who can't be tamed
Who go against the grain

We belong in the gutter singing
This song, all the bells are ringing

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah

We belong in the gutter singing
Sing along, at the stars we're singing

Hey, yeah
Hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

High explosive girl you turn me on
So volatile like a walking atom bomb (just like a walking atom bomb)
Just takes one spark to kerosene
You go off like nitro-glycerine (you go off like nitro glycerine)

The time is right to deviate
The supernatural cannot wait
I'll show you how to detonate, yeah

I'm coming up, I'm rising from the flames
I've been born with fire in my veins (I've been born with fire in my veins)

The time is right to deviate
The supernatural cannot wait
I'll show you how to detonate
Yeah!

Wanna love you
Wanna turn you on

Yeah, I wanna, blow your mind
Yeah, I wanna blow your little mind
Yeah, I wanna detonate

In a spiral, a comet on the blood-red horizon
Falling headlong, in flames I tumble into the ocean
In a fever, it's never gonna let you forget her
Come whatever, and who are you to know any better?

On a wave, never gonna see her again
On a wave, gonna ride it right to the end

A tsunami, slamming on floor of the ocean
An emotion, a butterfly has put it in motion

On a wave, never gonna see her again
On a wave, got it right right to the end
On a wave, breaking away
On a wave, don't care what you're saying

She always swore that
We'd make it whatever
Through any tempest
We'd stick together
She's in my system
She'll stay there forever
Like a virus that's in my heart

On a wave
On a wave

At night I'm floating on the seabed
White horses, charging over my head
And all is destined to decay
All is programmed to betray
In your heart and soul enslaved
Brake away on an ocean wave

Devotion, I'm falling to the floor of the ocean
I'm a depth of charge
A fireball of love and emotion

Yeah
On a wave, never gonna see her again
On a wave, got it right right to the end
On a wave, breaking away
On a wave

Don't care what you say
I'm leaving today
I'm breaking away on a wave

. . .



No I won't be saved
No I won't be saved

Heart is in my mouth
As I turn my face away
And I walk down the deserted streets
Desolate and grey
Nothing more to say
Whispering your name
Under winter skies
Imprisoned by the thought of you
Captured by your eyes
Mesmerised

No I won't be saved
I will always be enslaved
No I won't be saved
In my heart your name engraved

I'm down on my knees
In a willing sacrifice
I won't confess my transgressions
I won't repent my vice
I'll pay the price

No I won't be saved

I will always be enslaved
No I won't be saved
In my heart your name engraved
No I won't be saved
I won't be saved
No I won't be saved
I won't be saved

The visions come at night
I feel I'm hypnotised
I tremble as I fall into
The furnace of your eyes
And out of sight

No I won't be saved
I will always be enslaved
No I won't be saved
I will love you to the grave
No I won't be saved
I will always be enslaved
No I won't be saved
In my heart your name engraved

Falling down
Falling down
Falling down

. . .


Sub-cult fantasy, vampire love
A carnal sacrifice of the virgin dove
In the midnight court I scent your blood
Innocence drowning in the flood

Tonight I want you in my arms
It's not the end, no
Tonight I'll place you safe from harm
It's not the end, no
Yeah
Oohh

Victorian repression, I fantastise
Chromium lips and metallic eyes
The reverse cowgirl death defies
Virginal sinners tell sadisitic lies

Tonight i want you in my arms
It's not the end, no
Tonight i'll place you safe from harm
It's not the end, no

Soul searching on your knees
The time is always now for eternity
Black death market uniform
Submit unto my kiss and you'll be reborn
Yeah yeah

Sub-cult fantasy, vampire love
Erotic bombshell, she's the god above
Give me cardinal sin, sensual head
Vapour trail vision, I'm glad I'm dead

Tonight I want you in my arms
It's not the end, no
Tonight I'll place you safe from harm
It's not the end, no

Tonight I want you in my arms
It's not the end, no
Tonight I need to feel your charms
It's not the end, no
It's not the end, no (It's not the end, no)
It's not the end, no (It's not the end, no)
It's not the end, no (It's not the end, no)
