The siren screams to start the day You get up early to earn your pay Push the button throw that switch Turbines roar their unholy pitch I listen I can hear Pounding like thunder Pistons push the steel on steel Steam filled air turns the wheel The wheel in turn takes the strain Pounds the beat again and again Chorus: Metal on metal The feeling of steel Someone is driving But you've got the wheel The workers sing the same old song Machines in motion they're never wrong You think in time you will be free But a factory man is what you'll be I listen I can hear Pounding like thunder Pistons push the steel on steel Steam filled air turns the wheel The wheel in turn takes the strain Pounds the beat again and again Chorus Angry young men look to the west Speak for yourself you'll pass the test Fortune beholds the brave so they say Questions unanswered the risk they might pay I listen I can hear Pounding like thunder Chorus Fade
At 17 you're in a world of your own You think that no-one quite understands Your mother is telling you to stay at home Your father has quite different plans You've packed your bags and you're ready to leave Like so many times before You leave the envelope on the kitchen table As you turn the key of the door I'm so sorry but you'll never understand But you've never had the problems that I've had And I think that I can make it But life is just a game And I'm dealing all my aces While I grit my teeth in pain Chorus: I'm not a casualty (Hey boy) I'm not a number (Do you really care?) I'm looking through glossy magazines They make it look oh so real But my life isn't quite right just now who knows just how I feel Another tube station and a false address Know where to sleep tonight Another false friend who smiles and smiles And smiles through his evil eyes I'm so sorry but you'll never understand But you've never had the problems that I've had And I think that I can make it But life is just a game And I'm dealing all my aces While I grit my teeth in pain Chorus Fade...
Questions more questions Run round in my head No answers solutions Illusions instead As I walk alone And I picture the past The very beginning I ask yes I ask Chorus: The face may be gone But the scent lingers on Don't deny No place can I go My hopelessness shows in my eyes Questions more questions Never ending they seem My passion my heart Ripped out at the seams Like a jigsaw in pieces I have all the parts To put them together More a feat than a task Questions... Chorus Where can I go I remember so well Like a child sees the past You rejected my passion Ripped out my heart Questions, questions Tormenting myself Disillusioned and broken Like a toy on a shelf Like a child in the corner With my head in my hands Rejected I wonder Through life's empty lands Chorus Fade...
A blade in the back, don't please attack A knife in your back, won't fight back A blade in our back, go go attack A knife in your back, please fight back Harder they come run boy run Fight fight stand by your rights He's too young to die, he hopes but still tries And that what a rebel cried Chorus: Only the good die young Only the good die young Survive staying alive Alive we will survive Only the good die young Crawl into a coffin six feet in the ground Down down don't want him around Don't break his bones find he's not stone You know you'll never hurt him Stronger they come they think they have But no they haven't killed him Life without time, that just a crime A life time without mercy You said to achieve it's not just a dream But the good die young Chorus Fade...
I can never tell you I can't speak the truth From my window I see darkness From my past my youth Alone I'm alone again Here in my room More tears are shed for yesterday For you... Chorus: Tell me tell me tell me The screaming children cry Like flowers in the water Without it they would die Listen to me, hear my words Can you hear me, The voices in the garden calling For you... I'm alone Alone again The screaming children calling Like angels voices, crying Chorus Can you hear me... Whispering voices echo nothing They wish to speak to you Nothing but sweet nothing Spoken if only they'd speak the truth Spoken if only they'd speak the truth
The promise: You said it would come true The proof: The making up to you Pride: Hold your head up high You've got them on your side Please don't run please don't hide Chorus: Promises it's your life The jury: Decided it for you Decisions: Maybe they're untrue Sometimes: You've got to give and take Hurry-up: It's make or break It's time: Time to live live your life (chorus) Promises, promises Promise me, I'll promise you ?????? And count to two Lately: Are you takin' wrong advice Suggestions: Maybe wrong maybe right Remember: You're takin' nothing for granted Your past your present life maybe tainted But remember it's your life (chorus) Chorus Fade...
Love change we change One cheque for love One lost glove Never to reappear Gone forever with the change Oh it's such a shame Nothing's true anymore Chorus: Give me the love glove I'll give you love For a certain price Give me the love glove I'll give you love Gamble and sacrifice Love I'll give you money Sweet as sugar pure as honey Hey don't walk away You won't have to pay Love I'll give you gold Gold you pay the price I throw the dice Gamble risk sacrifice Chorus Love has changed to you Who's got the glove I've got the cheque One cheque for love I've got the glove who pays the price Chorus Fade to end...
Today or tomorrow Who can tell at all The tears and the sorrow Can you hear them call Chorus: Walk - walk away Turn against it all But still, still tomorrow It's backs against the wall See - can you see All around us pain Look deep inside But still it's still the same Chorus Fade... to end
