Detail


 Debut 
Fire of unknown origin 04:11
Death comes sweeping through the hallway

Like a lady's dress
Death comes driving down the highway
In its Sunday best

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away

Swept her up and off my wavelength
Swallowed her up
Like the ocean in a fire
So thick and grey

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away

Death comes driving
I can't do nothing
Death goes
There must be something
There must be something
That remains
There must be something
There must be something

A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby away
A fire of unknown origin
Took my baby
Took my baby away

Burnin' for you 04:31
Home in the valley

Home in the city
Home isn't pretty
Ain't no home for me

Home in the darkness
Home on the highway
Home isn't my way
Home I'll never be

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight
I'm living for givin' the devil his due
And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow

Time everlasting
Time to play B-sides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong and what's right
I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through
And I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you
I'm burnin', I'm burnin', I'm burnin' for you

 Debut 
Veteran of the psychic wars 04:50
You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars

I've been living on the edge so long
Where the winds of limbo roar
And I'm young enough to look at
And far too old to see
All the scars are on the inside
I'm not sure if there's anything left of me

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating up our brains
Oh, please don't let theses shakes go on

You ask me why I'm weary, why I can't speak to you
You blame me for my silence
Say it's time I changed and grew
But the war's still going on dear
And there's no end that I know
And I can't say if we're ever...
I can't say if we're ever gonna to be free

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
It's time we had some leave
We've been living in the flames
We've been eating out our brains
Oh, please don't let theses shakes go on

You see me now a veteran of a thousand psychic wars
My energy's spent at last
And my armor is destroyed
I have used up all my weapons and I'm helpless and bereaved
Wounds are all I'm made of
Did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these shakes go on
It's time we had a break from it
Send me to the rear
Where the tides of madness swell
And been sliding into hell
Oh, please don't let shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on
Don't let these shakes go on

 Debut 
Sole survivor 04:05
There walked a lonely man

Silent, mute, the only man
Not knowing how not knowing why
Was he the sole survivor
Why should he be alive
Breathing still while others died
And the only question
Why was he the sole survivor?

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

Wind blew across the sand
He stood alone he had no plan
And with the last rays of the sun
He screamed aloud began to run
In his tears he sees his face
"I am the end of the human race
When I'm gone there'll be no trace
For I'm the sole survivor"

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

One night when years had passed
The sky shook from a fiery blast
And there a starship - saved at last
To come rescue this survivor
They beckoned him inside
But only man he would not ride
Instead he found a place to hide
For he's the sole survivor

Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

 Debut 
Heavy metal: the black and silver 03:19
Into the whirlpool

Where matter vanishes
Degenerate star
Arm of Orion
An iron sun
The forbidden circle
Anti-matter is the
Black horizon

Heavy metal
Black and silver
Fallen matter
Of the sun
Pours itself
Into a place
Where there was never
Never one

By starlight
The heaviest will rise up
Magnetic mirror
Scattered bodies slow
All chaos of matter
River of fire
A night sea crossing
The cosmic fluid flows

Heavy metal
Black and silver
Fallen matter
Of the sun
Pours itself
Into a place
Where there was never
Never one

Fallen matter
From the cross
Freedom
That was never lost
Beyond being
Will be coming
Beyond time, space and control

Direction........Starlight
Creation.........Starbright
Foundation.......We forged the Einstein bridge tonight
Spans a river....Starlight
We call time.....Starbright
World............Light of darkness
Without end......Light of light

Heavy metal
Black and silver
Fallen matter
Of the sun
Pours itself
Into a place
Where there was never, never, never, never one

 Debut 
Vengeance (The pact) 04:41
See them standing in the foothills

Waiting for the kill
On wings of fear the terror sweeps
Into the city beat

To defend
This is the pact
But when life's scorned
And damage done
To avenge
This is the pact

On wings of vengeance
Taarna finds them
Death for barbarians

To defend
This is the pact
But when life's scorned
And damage done
To avenge
This is the pact

Flying over the oasis
She is captured and they pull her down

Feeling pain
From the air
Close my eyes
And I am there
I feel I'm falling down in a deep dark pit

"Pull him down" the soldier said
"I'll put an arrow in his head"
But the bird
Flew off instead
To save his master
On his back she fled

Her time has come

Riding her bird
High in the saddle
She gets her chance to fulfil the pact now
As their leader
Swoops from the clouds
She sticks him with her sword
Then she throws him down

The enemy shrivel and die
The enemy shrivel and die

To defend
This is the pact
But when life's scorned
And damage done
To avenge
This is the pact

After dark 04:25
What's that in the corner?

It's too dark to see
What's that noise I'm hearing
Who's that calling me?

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
But once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control it told me what to say
And let me loose I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I see you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I need you

Of age there is no question
Death's shadow is undone
We only need each other
In shelter from the sun

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
But once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control it told me what to say
And let me loose I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I need you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I see you

There's no turning back now
My fate is traced in blood
I've tasted true salvation
Your power is my drug

Long ago and far away I heard your voice
But once I heard you sing your song I had no choice
Terror took control it told me what to say
And let me loose I fear I've finally found a way

After dark, I need you
After dark, I want you
After dark, I feel you
After dark, I see you
After dark, I touch you
After dark, I do!
After dark
After dark
After dark

 Debut 
Joan Crawford 04:54
Junkies down in Brooklyn are going crazy

They're laughing just like hungry dogs in the street
Policemen are hiding behind the skirts of little girls
Their eyes have turned the color of frozen meat

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave

Catholic school girls have thrown away their mascara
They chain themselves to the axles of big Mac trucks
The sky is filled with herds of shivering angels
The fat lady laughs, "Gentlemen, start your trucks"

Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave

Christina
Mother's home
Christina
Come to mother
Christina

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave
Joan Crawford has risen from the grave
Joan Crawford has risen

Don't turn your back 04:07
Don't turn your back

Danger surrounds you
Don't turn your back
To the dogs who hound you
Don't turn your back
Don't show your profile
You'll never know
When it's your turn to go

Don't turn your back
On intuition
Don't turn your back
On superstition
Don't turn your back
To your jealous neighbor
He just might blow
And spoil the show

Don't turn your back
One chance to save her
Don't turn your back
Keep her out of danger
Don't turn your back
She'll return the favor
She wants you so
Don't say no.

Things are not always what they seem
She will always say what she means
You'll never know who your friends really are
You'll use that special option in your car.

Don't turn your back
Danger surrounds you
Don't turn your back
To the dogs who hound you
Don't turn your back
Don't show your profile
You'll never know
When it's your turn to go
