MOVING TARGET



LAST GOODBYE



Crime is done, I'm alone in the night
There's no one to save, and there's no one to fight,
Now you're gone and I'm just looking around,
Chasin' shadows and traces in the sky, on the ground

I pray for the miracle,
Father, don't take him away
Rise up for a miracle,
Save him or don't let me stay...

Such a shame now you're out of my reach,
And it hurts, I don't know should I curse, should I preach?
Play the game - put a gun to your head,
Smile - give me a shot - pull the trigger - you're dead...

Goin' down, you're goin' down all the way,
Down to the needle park
Goin' down, you're goin' down like a little child,
Lost in the dark...

Last, last goodbye - you'll take yours and I'll take mine.
Dance around the candle like a butterfly,
Can you tell me why?
Last, last goodbye - bitter as the silent cry,
Blowin' out the chance to do a second try,
Just another try...

Day by day, crossin' oceans of pain,
God I wish I could stop this old runaway train.
Far away like a shadow, a ghost,
Now the magic is gone and the spirit is lost...

Goin' down, you're goin' down all the way,
Down to the needle park
Goin' down, you're goin' down like a little child,
Lost in the dark...

Last, last goodbye - you'll take yours and I'll take mine.
Dance around the candle like a butterfly,
Can you tell me why?
Last, last goodbye - bitter as the silent cry,
Blowin' out the chance to do a second try,
Just another try...



1348



Future's comin' from the past,
Who's first and who's last
Fire's risin' off the ground,
Fear's the king, entire town
Lookin' up across the sky,
Which one's turn to die...

All are one and world's apart,
Undertaker's workin' hard
You'll remember the loss of fate,
December '48...

Devil's mark is on your face,
Black Death's all around the place,
Rotten bodies is where it's at
Friends are gone, and rats get fat,
Cross on fire fights the night
Who will ever see the light
Crowd in front of the Heaven's Gate,
December '48...



MAKING A MESS


I was raised in a faraway land,
Tryin' to be number one
Dad use to tell me -
"Whatever you do, never let go 'till you're done"

I was fightin' as anyone,
I was twisted around
I was broke just as anyone,
On the way - way down

Never ever settle for less,
Raise you hand it's to kill or to bless
Never ever settle for less,
Who needs the crown when you're head on the ground
Let me out, I'm just makin' a mess...

Chip on my shoulder and look on my face,
Changin' my life on the fly
Too late to make it and too late to stop,
Too late to figure out why

I can make you as anyone
I can twist you around
I can break you as anyone
on the way - way down

Never ever settle for less,
Raise you hand it's to kill or to bless
Never ever settle for less,
Who needs the crown when you're head's on the ground
Let me out, I'm just makin' a mess...

The wind of sadness can shade the heart of gold
I'm gonna leave it all behind
I'm prayin' for a break - if I could face the world,
Without sadness on my mind...

Never ever settle for less,
Raise you hand it's to kill or to bless
Never ever settle for less,
Who needs the crown when you're head's on the ground
Let me out, I'm just makin' a mess...



FAR AWAY



In the misty morning after darkest night,
I feel the heat, I do, and I remember,
Promises are broken now when you're gone
Don't turn me down,
I'm lost and I surrender...

Give me just a sign,
Help to cross the line,
We'll back time and start again

Far away - I can hear you're callin',
Far away - callin' up my name
Far away - and the tears are fallin',
Far away - no one is to blame...

Some feelings won't come easy,
You have to hit them hard
You've burned the bridge,
And I fell in a sea of sorrow

Can you hear my prayer,
Just bring back yesterday,
I feel the pain, it makes me hate tomorrow...

Take me for a while,
Just to make me smile
I wish I'll never ever cry again.

Far away - I can hear you're callin',
Far away - callin' up my name
Far away - and the tears are fallin',
Far away - no one is to blame...



STEP BY STEP



Switch blade dance,
And your friend goes down
I'm gonna hit you once and you'll kiss the ground
It's a sweet romance,
No good and clown,
Boy listen there's a new kid comin',
And he's gonna rock this town,
He's gonna rock it...

I see the writing on the wall,
No one's to blame nobody's fault

Step by step - I got lost and never found,
Step by step - can't find my way around,
Step by step - take a break, don't you put me down,
Step by step - hands down - I'm busted to the ground

Kid's gettin' tough,
It's like a civil war, a proper war,
You better keep your ass behind that solid door
Looks like it's never enough,
You keep on comin' for more,
Somebody tells me why and what we're fighting for?

I'm standin' back against the wall,
Which one of us is gonna fall...

Step by step - I got lost and never found,
Step by step - can't find my way around,
Step by step - take a break, don't you put me down,
Step by step - hands down - I'm busted to the ground



STAY DOWN



They have promised you the world,
And left you on your own,
Now all your life is built on fear,
Lies and hearts of stone

And now I realize,
The promises were lies,
I'm walkin' endless miles,
I can't believe my eyes...

Are you fightin' for survive?
It's a lousy way to live
A wish to make it through the night,
And nothin' else to give

And now I realize,
The promises were lies,
I'm walkin' endless miles,
I can't believe my eyes...

Stay down low down,
Nobody cares if you're still hangin' around
Stay down low down,
Who will you run to and who will you pray to,
When you're down on the ground...

Who will help you when you fall,
Who will pull you up?
When you're prayin' for revenge,
Who will make you stop?

Stay down low down,
Nobody cares if you're still hangin' around
Stay down low down,
Who will you run to and who will you pray to,
When you're down on the ground...

And now I realize,
The promises were lies,
I'm walkin' endless miles,
I can't believe my eyes...



GIVE IT UP



Give it up just let it flow,
Keller's runnin' TV show
Razor blade in action - everything is "live",
Scandal makes a paper "hot",
You may like it, you may not

Marriage, rape, divorce, somebody's butchered wife
Empire rise, they're built on lies,
In the children's eyes, I'll never...
Give it up, never ever give it up!

Little kid some place abroad,
Shot dead by the terror squad
Only one? Just not enough to ring a bell!
TV preacher will love to tell you,
Pay a dime and God's for sale

Don't get scared it's just another day in hell
Empire's turn, they're built burn,
We'll never learn - I'll never...
Give it up, never ever give it up!



TIME



Time, how long it's gonna last?
I'm livin in the past and runnin' out of time...

I keep runnin' around in circles,
I keep walkin' in the dark,
I keep tryin' to wash away the devil's mark!

I have my reasons to remember,
I have my reasons to forget,
I have my reasons to eject a safety net!
'Cos we'll all fall down on the cold, cold ground,
Don't you turn around - who's crime?

Time - I'm runnin' out of
Time - I've wasted all my
Time - I'm gonna need some
I'm runnin out of time!

I'm gonna finish off confusions,
I'm gonna leave it all for good,
I'm gonna quit on being' left misunderstood!

I'm gettin' rid of my illusions,
I'm gettin' tired of the crowd,
I'm gettin' out, I'm checkin' out,
I'm gettin' out!
'Cos we'll all fall down on the cold, cold ground,
Don't you turn around - who's crime?

Time - I'm runnin' out of
Time - I've wasted all my
Time - I'm gonna need some
I'm runnin' out of time!
