Lyrics

 

01. Forever Free (5:01)


Take me where the eagles fly
Let me drive along the open road
Break away the chains that bind you
Now you're free to make it your own
Feel the engines burning hot
Pounding out the sound
A free man proud

Forever free, riding with the wind in your hair (*)
Forever free, forever free

Take me where the four winds blow
Let me see the magic in your eyes
Just take the shackles from your soul
Imagination soaring to the skies
Journey to the rainbow's end
Searching for the freedom in your heart

(Repeat *)

Take me to the open plains
Let me drive along the desert road
Break away the chains that blind you
Now you're free to make it on your own
Feel the engines burning hot
Pounding out the sound
A free man proud

(Repeat *)

02. Hole In The Sky (4:45)


Listen now, heed the warning
Can't you hear the planet's cries
With the storm comes the fury
Mankind looks towards the sky

Burn the wheat (*)
Feed the fire
On the wind
Rising higher
There's a hole in the sky
Are we blind
Hole in the sky
Can't you see

Come the sun, come the wind
Ultraviolet radiation
Bring the flood from the sea
Breaking down communication

(Repeat *)

Listen now, heed the warning
Bring the land to devastation
Come the thunder, come the rain
See the end of all creation

(Repeat *)

03. Just Wanna Make Love To You (3:57)


I don't want you to be my slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want you to be sad and blue
'Cos I just wanna make love to you

I don't want you to drive my car
I don't want you to go too far
I don't want you to be true
'Cos I just wanna make love to you

I can tell by the way that you switch and walk
I can tell by the way that you treat your man
I can't love you baby it's a crying shame

I don't want you to be true
I don't want you to be blue
I don't want you to make no sacrifice
I just wanna make love to you

04. Get Down And Dirty (5:08)


Working in a drug store
Slaving on it nine to five
Waiting for the weekend
That's when she comes alive

You've got me coming like a freight train (*)
You took my heart away
Now I'm hooked on you
You got to get down
Get down and dirty
You got to get down
Get down and dirty

Walking down the sidewalk
Making all the schoolboys stare
Red skirt and long legs
And looking like she don't even care

(Repeat *)

05. Iron Wheels (4:15)


My father used to work the seam far below the ground
Digging for the coal to melt the steel
But now he lies a twisted man one foot in the grave
Just like the iron wheels that took him down

Just like the iron wheels that took him down

He used to be the fisherman that sailed the mighty sea
Searching for the harvest from the deep
But now the fleets are rusting hulks anchored at the quay
Just like the iron wheels that took him down

Just like the iron wheels that took him down

He used to be the farming man standing tall and proud
Working on the land to sow the seed
But now the buildings stand in shame rotting on the land
Just like the iron wheels that took him down

Just like the iron wheels that took him down

06. One Step Away (5:00)


Just another kid in the firing line
Up against the wall running out of time
Makes no difference what you do
That poisons taking hold of you

No warning, there's danger (*)
This pain is no stranger
You're falling
I hear you calling
Desperation is just one step away

Just another girl with the crying eyes
Up against the odds running out of lies
Makes no difference where she goes
That poison drags her down below

(Repeat *)

Just another day like the one before
Living on the streets running from the law
Makes no difference what you said
That poison's got you in it's web

(Repeat *)

07. Can't Stop Rockin' (4:06)


I was laid around bored to tears watching flowers grow
I got my car and drove to town tried to find a show
Cruised around for an hour or two, hunted high and low
I had to find some rock 'n' roll to make my system go

'Cos I can't, I can't stop rockin' (*)
Let me hear that music one more time
'Cos I can't, I can't stop rockin'

I found a club with a neon sign on the sleazy side of town
A battered jukebox on the wall was the only source of sound
A drunken sailor from a russian whaler was my only drinking mate
Then through the door smashed a hundred more, said yeah let's celebrate

(Repeat *)

The party burst straight out through the doors out onto the street
People came from miles around dancing to the beat
From across the street came a real smart suit, said hey I'm gonna sue
But there ain't no sucker with a long legged hooker, gonna tell me what to do

(Repeat *)

08. Nighthunter (3:25)


Creeping after midnight, shadows on the wall
Something in the darkness, hear the footsteps fall
Faces at the window, creatures of the night
Seeking out a victim, somewhere out of sight

Coming out of nowhere, preying on our fear (*)
If you want to stay alive, then keep away from here
Midnight, creeping, shadows, nighthunter

Mist across the forest, the baying of the pack
Hunters in the twilight, never turn their back
When the full moon rises, the chill is in the air
Keep your children safe tonight, the wolf has left his lair

(Repeat *)

09. Grind (4:26)


Get on top, keep it up (*)
Don't let them ever grind you down

Up down, turn around, give a little more
Inside, outside, knocking on my door
I don't need no preacher man telling me what to do
All I want is to live my life, the rest is up to you

(Repeat *)

Prime time, my time, take it on the run
Place your bets, get set, have yourself some fun
Look into my crystal ball, I'll tell you what's in store
Another rich man getting fat, taking from the poor

(Repeat *)

Come on down, hang around, feel like number one
Pump and grind, stand in line, the show has just begun
Don't be fooled by what you see, nothing's ever free
Everyone must pay the price, they're just like you and me

(Repeat *)

10. Cloud Nine (4:35)


People say we're crazy but where's their sense of fun
Take it to the limit, fly into the sun
I'm doing fine
Up on cloud nine
Flying into battle, target on the ground
Screaming out of nowhere, at twice the speed of sound
I'm doing fine
Up on cloud nine

Now gather round you sinners, listen to my song (*)
About the time we raised some hell down in Babylon
I'm a warrior from the skies and you're about to die
So put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye
I'm doing fine
Up on cloud nine

Taste the danger out there supersonic run
Loving every minute, let the hostiles come
I'm doing fine
Up on cloud nine
Racing through the canyons, show no signs of fear
Static on the airwaves, forget the landing gear
I'm doing fine
Up on cloud nine

(Repeat *)

Sonic boom, there ain't no room up here in the sky
So take your aim, I feel no pain, I'm never gonna die

(Repeat *)
