Track Name: Circuit Breaker
You crawl from my bed like a snake
And put on a face by the door
Grabbed a bite to eat from your way from the room
And dropped a cup of mud on the floor
Said I’m sorry I have to leave you now
And you never gave a reason why
She’d hit the streets for a better loving man
And she thought I would break down and die
Chorus
Oh circuit breaker , it’s so plain to see
You’re just a sweet heartacher
Ain’t no way that you’re gonna break me

I called on my friends on my way down town
Hoping they’d seen you that day
They knew your game and said I had it coming
So if they knew they weren’t gonna say
My mind was hazy as I left the room
My head was going up and down
Had she really left me for a cool calm jerk
Or looking for pay for a pound
Chorus
Oh circuit breaker , it’s so plain to see
You’re just a sweet heartacher
Ain’t no way that you’re gonna break me

My mind was hazy as I left the room
My head was going up and down
Had she really left me for a cool calm jerk
Or looking for pay for a pound
She said I’m sorry but I have to leave you now
But she’d never gave the reason why
She’d hit the streets for a better loving man
Thought I would break down and die
Chorus
Oh circuit breaker , it’s so plain to see
You’re just a sweet heartacher
Ain’t no way that you’re gonna break me

You’re just a circuit breaker (repeat)
Track Name: Dirty Doris
There’s a big fat mama who lives round here
And don’t you go putting her down
If she hears you saying one bad word
Then you ain’t gonna be around

You know what she wants from me
That ain’t how it’s gonna be

Cos she’s so dirty
(dirty for me)
She’s so dirty
(dirty for me)

She wrote me a letter saying I love you babe
And won’t you come round for tea
Then I’ll tie you up on her big brass bed and whipped the balls of off me

You know what you want from me
That ain’t how it’s gonna be
Cos you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)
you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)
you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)

You’d better run far away from me
Between you and hell momma you’re the one I fear
Dirty Doris , hey boys she’s gonna give you a fright
You’d better make sure your doors are locked at night

You know I ain’t no sinner baby
I ain’t so easily led
But what I caught you doing with the dog next door
You know you must be sick in the head

Well I know what you want to be
But don’t go involving me

Cos she’s so dirty
(dirty you see)
She’s so dirty
(dirty for me)

no one lives in our street no more
no one comes to stay
when they found out what you do in the mourge
you know they all move away

I know what you want to be
Making my life misery

Cos you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)
you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)
you’re so dirty
(dirty for me)

You’d better run far away from me
Between you and hell momma you’re the one I fear
Dirty Doris , hey boys she’s gonna give you a fright
You’d better make sure your doors are locked at night
Track Name: Blind Destiny
Heaven is just a mile away
I’m a gambling man , a few words to say
Fame and fortune ran out on me
I’m a blind man , with eyes that see
Chorus
Then I met , Blind Destiny (Repeat)

Heaven is just a mile away
I’m a loving man , a few words to say
Wine and women ran out on me
I’m a blind man , with eyes that see
Chorus
Then I met , Blind Destiny (Repeat)

Heaven is just a mile away
I’m a fighting man , a few words to say
Pride and honour ran out on me
I’m a blind man , with eyes that see
Chorus
Then I met , Blind Destiny (Repeat)
Track Name: Insanity
You say I’ve got no feelings
You say that I don’t care
You give me the kind of a feeling
I wouldn’t wanna be there
You know you make me wanna , pick up my guitar and play
You know you make me wanna , be right on my way

There’s a man out in the hall
Telling us to turn it down
But don’t he know i’m down
And that I’m going down
To the town to try and make it
Gonna spend all of my wages
Gonna turn back my life’s pages
Gonna lose my mind by stages
There’s a doctor in the room
Says I look just like a ghost
Gonna do just what he says
Gonna send my brain by post
Track Name: Silver Bullet
Pastel shades are fading in the darkness of the night
Wolfman uses forest like an eagle uses flight
Centuries of changes , hasn’t tamed his twisted will
Wolfman grinning slyly as he moves in for the kill

Chorus

Waiting for the silver bullet
The death that never comes
Waiting for the silver bullet
Released from everlasting light

Legend has him painted as a man with little choice
Half man and half wolf with a howl for a voice
Even though he’d like to , he knows he’ll never die
Poor tormented being with an everlasting sigh

Chorus

Waiting for the silver bullet
The death that never comes
Waiting for the silver bullet
Released from everlasting light (repeat)

Pastel shades are fading to the darkness of the night
Wolfman uses forest like an eagle uses flight
Centuries of changes , haven’t tamed his twisted will
Wolfman grinning slyly as he moves in for the kill

Chorus

Waiting for the silver bullet
The death that never comes
Waiting for the silver bullet
Released from everlasting light
Track Name: No Chance For Tomorrow
Open your eyes and see what we’re feeling
Open your mind and read our hearts
Realise the company you’re keeping
You’re off the tracks – gonna leave you behind

It’s in the stars, don’t mess with religion
If God exists then he’s out of his mind
Don’t be a fool, gotta watch what you’re thinking
What’s going on is gonna drive you insane

This is a world with no chance for Tomorrow
The time will come when we all have to pay
For the beliefs, problems and sorrow
You’re in the queue now wait for your turn

Open your eyes and see what we’re feeling
If God exists then he’s out of his mind
We’re in a world with no chance for tomorrow
We’re off the tracks, gonna drive you insane
Track Name: Fire In My Heart
There’s a man who thinks that power rules the world
And he has seen to it that it that he has got it all
So he convinces all his generals that he’s right
Then when they see it they can set the world alight

Chorus

Fire In my heart
There’s a fire in my heart (repeat)

And all the people here are living on their nerves
And central Europe is the back drop for their play
So they’re recruiting all the actors to the stage
Geiger counters push the needles of the gauge



Chorus

Fire In my heart
There’s a fire in my heart (repeat)
Track Name: Infantrycide
Living in a world of conflict and violence
The human life only takes second place
The way I see it, the way things are going
That’s the way that it’s going to stay

Nobody told them they could use us in this way
Nobody told them they could risk our lives this way
Oh no
Oh no , don’t kill the world

They leave us with lies, to poison our minds
Prepare us to meet our fate
Can’t you see they’re living a dream
And we’re going to pay



Nobody told them they could use our lives this way
Nobody told them they could use our lives this way
Oh no
Oh no , don’t kill the world

Nobody told them they could use our lives this way
Nobody told them they could risk our lives this way
Oh no
Oh no , don’t kill the world (Repeat)
Track Name: Don't Throw Your Life away
All around there’s a feeling in the air
I look around and I see there’s no one there
It’s the kind of a feeling makes you feel you ought to care
You know there’s someone who will dare

Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before
Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before

You know that sometimes people let you down
It doesn’t mean that the world stops turning round
You’ve got to look for a meaning – don’t just turn in blind despair
You know there’s someone who will care

Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before
Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before

Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before
Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before

All around there’s a movement in the air
I look around and see there’s someone there
I know it’s not an illusion, I could see they’re really there
You know there’s someone who will dare

Don’t throw your life away
Too many peoples’ gone before
Don’t throw your life away
Too many people’s gone before
Track Name: Stay
I’m writing this letter , to tell you the way that I feel
Don’t misunderstand me , we said our goodbyes that’s agreed
But when It comes to the night and I’m holding you tight in my dreams
I call out your name but it’s always in vain so it seems
Chorus
Stay
Stay for a while
Only the memories hurt when you smile
Why
Why did you go
Only the memories are asking to know

Your behaviour was restless because you were young and naive
I never considered that one day you’d get up and leave
There’s a place set aside in my heart I can’t hide that’s a fact
I know that I care and I’ll always be there , don’t look back
Chorus
Stay
Stay for a while
Only the memories hurt when you smile
Why
Why did you go
Only the memories are asking to know (repeat)
I’m writing this letter , to tell you the way that I feel
Don’t misunderstand me , we said our goodbyes that’s agreed
But when It comes to the night and I’m holding you tight in my dreams
I call out your name but it’s always in vain so it seems
Chorus
Stay
Stay for a while
Only the memories hurt when you smile
Why
Why did you go
Only the memories are asking to know
Track Name: Heartbreak Zone
Tonight I’ll tell you all the things I think you ought to know
I’ve been running far too long like a dog without a home
Hear me calling in the night, I’m calling out to you
I’ve been down to the heartbreak zone, tell me have you been there too?

I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
Coming down now, coming down to the heartbreak zone

And as another day begins, I’m stronger in the morning light
Things get changed and rearranged (especially in the dead of night)
Make a stand, just demand, show me that you’re really strong
Rescue me from the heartbreak zone – maybe I’ve been there too long

I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
Coming down now, coming down to the heartbreak zone

I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
I’m coming down to the heartbreak zone
Coming down now, coming down to the heartbreak zone
Track Name: Charlotte Russe
You’ve kept the memories through the years
Of lonely nights and bitter tears
The people knelt as you rode by
You smiled and threw your head up high

Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right
Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right

Commited sins against the earth
Your only crime was one of birth
You paid a high price for your words
Inherited a family curse

Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right
Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right

Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right
Now it seems you gave up the fight
What was wrong, never is right
