01. Rainbow Theme (1:00)


Instrumental

02. Frozen Rainbow (4:37)


Hidden deep beneath the snow
There's a man who guards the secret
Of the frozen rainbow
...of all the ages
Lies hidden neath the ice
The man who finds the secret
Holds the power of life

Far below the valleys
Hidden deep beneath the snow
There's a man who's got a secret
Waiting to be told
I've searched through all the ages
To find the hidden truth
The secret of the rainbow
Will never be revealed

I'll find the rainbow, frozen rainbow
I'll find the rainbow, frozen rainbowl

03. Big Teaser (3:56)


Out with the boys
Testing my virility
The booze and the music
Arrousing my curiousity

I moved in beside her
Asked her to rock and roll with me
Cause I have her classed
My eyes roam lecherously
Lecherously, lecherously, lecherously

She's a big teaser (Repeat)
I only see her
Very occasionally
She's leading me on
She's living dangerously
It's easy to see
She's making a fool out of me
Oh but I ain't no fool
I'll get her eventually
Eventually, eventually, eventually

She's a big teaser (Repeat)

04. Judgement Day (5:31)


I don't need your religion (**)
It ain't nothin' to me
I don't want nobody pushin'
Need to be free

You've got to hit hard
I've seen those demons fall
I'm savin' my soul for the final goal

But that day is comin', yeah (***)
The judgement is here
Look over your shoulder
The judgement is here

I don't need nobody knockin'
Knockin' on my door
I don't need nobody sellin'
Sellin' me no more

You're always on the take
All your silly faith
I'm savin' my soul, savin' my soul

I can feel it in the breeze (*)
It's blowin' through the trees
You can see it in the sky
It makes you wonder why

(Repeat *)
I can feel it in the breeze
It's blowin' through the trees
Through the trees

(Repeat **)

I've seen your...
I've seen those dreams fall
I'm savin' my soul for rock and roll

(Repeat ***)

The judgement is here
The judgement is here
The judgement is here
Judgement, judgement, judgement

Judgement day, yeah

05. Stallions Of The Highway (2:52)


Friday night, I feel all right (*)
I get into my leathers
And I get out on my bike

There's thunder in my ears
It's blasting down...
Kickin' up brick
I don't give a shit
I got the wind in my hair
You know I don't even care
Stallions of the highway

Switchblade's gleamin'
Engine screamin'
I'm laughin' at fate
I'm living to hate
My knees are showing red
I'm ridin' with the dead
Get out of my way
I'm a stallion of the highway

I got the wind in my hair
I don't even care
I broke out of my shell
I'm on a daydream from hell
Don't shed no tears
I been here fifteen years

(Repeat *)

My knees are showing red
I'm ridin' with the dead
Get out of my way
I got the wind in my hair
I don't even care
Stallions of the highway
Of the highway

06. Backs To The Wall (3:09)


People pushin' like I don't know (*)
I'm gonna live my life like I wanted to
My hopes shot down, my backs to the wall
But I've got my pride
They can't take it all

I've got my pride
They can't take that away
You've got your pride
They can't take that away

(Repeat *)

I've got my pride
They can't take that away
I've got my pride
They can't take that away
I'm gonna be free
Gonna be free

Can't take my life away (**)
They can't take my life away
Take my life away

(Repeat **)

Take my life away
Take my life away

Back's to the wall
I'm starting to fall
Make your stand, no man's land
Will nobody give me a helping hand
Put me down, wipe me out
Do what you like but I'll put up a fight
I'm goin' to the wall (Repeat)
Goin' to the wall

07. Still Fit To Boogie (2:54)


We ain't gonna take it lyin' down
We're gonna stand on our own two feet
When people knock us down
We're gonna get up off the ground
And start all over again

Still fit to boogie (*)
Still fit to rock and roll
Stil fit to boogie
Stil fit to rock and roll

They struggle you down when you try to get up
You can't have doubts in your mind
Take the rough with the smooth
You got nothing to lose
All you need's the will to survive

(Repeat *)

Still fit to boogie (**)
Still fit to boogie
Still fit to boogie
Still fit to rock and roll

(Repeat ** 2 times)

If you're really feelin' down
Take a trip to town
And listen to a rock and roll band
You'll be rockin' and reelin'
Reelin' with the feelin'
Still fit to rock and roll, yeah
Still fit to rock and roll

08. Militia Guard (4:53)



Look here, my friends, I've got to tell you (*)
The world is out, the world is out
Trouble's coming, peace is over
The king has hung the militia guard

(Repeat *)

The kings men ran out in the light
To fight their foe was a waste of human life
And then they raised their fists
Against the crushing might
Encased the kings men sword
Into their...

Children crying for their mothers
How are they to know they died
There'll be no help...
We're fighting to be free and...
The king will regret one day
And that's not far away
The day he hung the militia guard
