Night time - turning out the sun
Countdown - pulsing like a machine
Conflict - cars and people, steel on flesh
Night time - desperations sweat on breath

Bloodstains - night covering the crimes
Daytime - shows the face behind the mask
Showtime - law and order life and death
Funtime - a drunken time where all can lie

Come, come with me, we'll run into the night
Come, come and see, sweet madness of night

Night time - party troops and governments
Clubtime - lovers riches promises
No time - running hiding crying tears
It's night time - and time to run from all your fears

Night time

. . .


The lore of elders passes judgement on this waste
And finding me or them does lack accepting fate
And as the moments pass another face arrives
We watch them come and go with speed of passing clouds

Forbidden fruits of dreams that rule our thoughts my love
Of lands untouched and ways to come always maybe
But choking on promises meant for the deal
Thinking again the darkest hour before the dawn

Confirming fears that from the dawn of time have been
Retracing footsteps in dark chambers of grey lands
And through the madness through the terror we must pass
As if awaiting sunlight that may never come

In time we face ourselves with all our faults and fears
Now that i know the final conflict is within
I recognise the faces of my friends and hear the call
"Come journey, journey with me through the darkest hour"

. . .


we must play our lives like soldiers in the field
but life is short i'm running faster all the time
strength and beauty destined to decay
so cut the rose in full bloom

'til the fearless come and the act is done
a love like blood, a love like blood

everyday through all frustration and despair
love and hate fight with burning hearts
'til legends live and man is god again
(and self-preservation rules the day no more)

we must dream of promised lands and fields
that never fade in season
as we move towards no end we learn to die
red tears are shed on grey

'til the fearless come and the act is done
a love like blood, a love like blood

'til the fearless come and the act is done
a love like blood, a love like blood

. . .


Well take it easy
While the world goes crazy
As it's just another day
And we've all been through the mangle
And our pockets are empty
But we'll live like kings and queens
Hear the choirs of noise sing
Take a load off my mind soothe me
Live like kings and queens

Well easy sleazy
In and out and back again
Feel a power running through me
And i'm alive and kicking
I accept submission
To the pleasures of the flesh
And the joy of pain
Satisfy me satisfy
Live like kings and queens

I said: "take it easy
"Sanity has come"
I can never undo
The wrong of the beginning
There's so many hungry
But i'm gonna turn a blind eye
'Cos i've got to live now
Rejoice and kill your heart 'cos i say...
Live like kings and queens

. . .


I've tried to understand the ways of men they taught me
They've lost their values as we define a wealth
Semen and blood is all i've got, investments of a future
I'm searching for a new gold yes i'm searching for a new gold

A voice is calling
Move closer to you - yeah

Virile young men run down the street in havoc singing
"I wish to build, i penetrate, i penetrate"
Restricted sexuality gives birth to worlds of terror
And all the time i'm trying to piece new schemes together - help me

Architects erect erections, monoliths are raised
I love the swollen mound i love the swollen mound
All hail the new seed breeding from our hearts and wombs

And night and day run round in circles following sex instinct
Push it between her legs and stretch the lips mother relieve me
Bodies entwined in human tangle at the point of climax
Shoot forth the new gold and at last reason makes perfect sense

I'm shooting, shooting forth
I'm shooting forth the new gold now - ha!

. . .


The multitude excites, the flags are flown
By fireside the programme starts
And i am running through this madness
And all the time i can't relate

We sit around in rooms we talk our fears
Asking why we should go on
God i try to make ends meet the best i can
Playing rhythms out of time

Far from the multitudes a few will always stand
They don't fit in they don't belong - move on, move on this way

Within disorder i assume my role
Laugh and cry as i accept
Eternal indolence through ages
'til restless souls begin to wake

Perfection within decades of dissatisfaction and disillusion

A means to no end, a means to no end

. . .


Take up your arms pick up your courage
A black sun is rising as the gods of europe sleep
Come back into your strength awaken
Catastrophes atrocities shall summon you my love

Glory glory how we wait in europe

What have they done, what are they doing?
The place i love so butchered ravaged scarred and raped
The years have passed us still we're fighting
'til once again somewhere green lands shall be in sight

Glory glory how we wait in europe
Glory glory how we watch in europe

The day humanity is over
Let nations east and west tremble at the sight
'til standard bearers' eyes are hungry
And reason dead forever - god let it be soon

. . .


Eighties - i'm living in the eighties
Eighties - i have to push, i have to struggle
Eighties - get out of my way, i'm not for sale no more
Eighties - let's kamikaze 'til we get there

And we sang
You do it this way

Eighties - by day we run by night we dance, we do
Eighties - i'm in love with the coming race
Eighties - i've got the best, i'll take all i can get
Eighties - i'm living for the eighties

Eighties - i'm living in the eighties - i push
Eighties - i'm living
Eighties - i'm living in the eighties - i struggle
Eighties - i'm living

Eighties - i'm living
Eighties - i'm living in the eighties
Eighties - i'm living in the eighties - i push
Eighties - push, push, struggle

Eighties - i'm living
Eighties - eighties - i'm living
Eighties - i'm living in the eighties - i push
Eighties - push, push, struggle

----------------------------------
(original lyrics)

Eighties - I'm living in the Eighties
Eighties - I have to push, I prostitute myself
Eighties - I saw the whole world getting anxious
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march

And we sang
In these Eighties

Eighties - I'm sitting on a table talking ideals
Eighties - I got the best, I'll take all I can get
Eighties - Here comes the savage day
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march

And we sang
In these Eighties

Eighties - I'm living in the Eighties - I push
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march
Eighties - I'm living in the Eighties - I struggle
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march

Eighties - I'm living in the Eighties - I push
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march
Eighties - I'm living in the Eighties - I struggle
Eighties - I saw the worlds begin to march
