XXX - Three Decades in Metal Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Born Free (4:07)
Born in the city of Hamburg in 1963
A new developed surrounding and the cemetery
Father was a banker, he rarely was at home
Mama took the duty, raised me on her own

Oh no, I could not speak or go
But one thing that I already did know

Born Free, no limits in my sky
Born Free, all my life

And then the sound came to me, it was the radio
"No me molest mosquito", the first thing I did know
And then it finally grabbed me, it was the Slade and The Sweet
It made me feel so groovy, it gave me instant heat

Oh no, I could not let it go
The music hit me down into the core

Born Free, no limits in my sky
Born Free, all my life

Rays in hell with the priest
Raising hell with the beast

Oh no, I'll never let it go
No one will ever take my Rock'n'Roll

Born Free, no limits in my sky
Born Free, all my life
Born Free, get out of my own way
Born Free, my own way

Born Free
2. Enemies of Fun (7:57)
They tell you that you're useless
Just a degenerate bum
They cut you down to small fry
And grill your ass 'til done

Your innocence they plunder
With knowledge from the cold
Beware you're going under
You're in a danger zone

They come to fight
Your dream to kill
They strike you down and force you with their iron will
So thanks for nothing
Just leave me be
And let me live my life the way it's meant to be
Beware my son

The enemies of fun, enemies of fun, the enemies of fun
You better turn and run
From the enemies of fun

In school I learned the hard way
That you don't fool around
Follow the rules and obey
Or they will chew you out

Just play for keeps, not to enjoy
Just do your work and don't you hang out with the boys
No, just let me rock and party well
I'll have it my own way and you can go to hell
I was born to run

From enemies of fun, enemies of fun
You better turn and run
From the enemies of fun
Enemies of fun

I was born for the bright lights
Step out of the rain
And you get nothing for nothing
I'll always do it again
I'll be riding the rising sun
So bless you all
I'm flying high...

They waste your time, they twist your mind
The enemies of fun
They're closing in, the joy grows dim
The enemies of fun
They never play, nor go astray
The enemies of fun
A little sin, they won't give in
The enemies of...
Aaaaaaahhhhhh

Beware my son...

The enemies of fun, enemies of fun
The enemies of fun, the enemies of fun

They got you on the run
They're out to get you
You better run from the E.O.F.
No, never listen
Oh, don't believe a word they say
Just do things your own way
You better run
So far away, far away...
3. Contract Song (5:33)
Hey guys, I'm a manager
And have I got news for you
You better listen...

Guys you've made it somewhere, you've made it far
You've climbed the first steps on the stairway to the stars
There's just a little problem that I am here to solve
There's a door you won't get through without the key I hold

Hey guys, I am the one you should believe in
Your sanctuary of rock star dreaming

Sign the bloody contract
Better sign it twice
The key to your own heaven
And the hell of your demise

Sign for fame and fortune
Play the bloody game
But don't come crying after
'Cause there's only you to take the blame

Welcome to the family, here's people you can trust
Just do as you are told and all your worries turn to dust
Don't bother 'bout accounting, we'll do it all for you
Just play your music well and we'll make sure you're breaking through

Just put yourself in our hands and your future's shining bright
Our sanctuary is all you need, we'll make you see the light

Sign the bloody contract
Better sign it twice
The key to your own heaven
And the hell of your demise

Sell your soul for fortune
Betray your heart for fame
But don't come crying after
'Cause there's only you who's left to blame

So you're young and you think that the world's made of candies
And you surely can eat all you want to
But the truth is a big lollypop you can't swallow
And the more that you suck it will choke you

You play with the heart of a grim
And the pain settles down deep within
You thought you had it made, you thought you had it all
But you just lost yourself
For everything you gained a piece of soul

I'm not really sure I wanna do this, I kind
- kinda have some doubts
And I...I don't know, if that's really right
Sign the contract
And I don't know, I don't know
Sign the contract
Sign the bloody contract
Sign the bloody contract
Now!

Sign the bloody contract
Better sign it twice
The key to rock star heaven
And the hell of your demise

Sell your soul for fortune
Betray your heart for fame
But don't you cry thereafter
'Cause there's only you to blame
4. Making Headlines (4:23)
Standing strong, marching on, moving down the way
Childhood gone, singing songs about the world today

It's time to change it for the good
It's time to change their point of view
You're out there on your own, but what more can you do

They've built a world of stone
You try to make it on your own
Feeling all alone
Wanna make the headlines
You wanna win, therefore you fight
And create a better tomorrow
Yes you know you should
And therefore it's good
If you make the headlines

Now you're there, in the air, upper class celebrity
Photographs, suited staff, the ultimate in-dignity

And now you realize you've come to change your point of view
Still you're on your own but you're not getting through

You've built a world of stone
You try to make it on your own
Feeling all alone
And you're making headlines
You try to win, and you still fight
Singing songs of a better tomorrow
But it's all a lie 'cause your only drive
Is another headline

MULTIMILLION DOLLAR PLATINUM SALES ARTIST XXX

ENDED UP IN A PILE OF...

They've built a world of stone
You try to take it on alone
Now you're on your own
Had to make the headlines
There's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
There is only a wasted tomorrow
Just a wasted chance in the global dance
Of the making headlines

5. Stranger in Time (6:02)
When your day is done and you're all alone
Someone's calling for you
When you think "that's all", you will get the call
"They are waiting for you"

Then you walk into an overcrowded room
And they're standing and stare
Want to grab and talk, want to steal your heart
Like a price on a fair

Walk away, remove yourself into silence
Make your day and then draw the curtain to it all

Ohoo, psychotopia
I ain't got no reason and rhyme
Ohoo, demophobia
I can't stand the world next to mine
I'm just a stranger in time

And the crap goes on day by day to come
And the words have no meaning
From the bitch so wild to the problem child
Transformation, delusion

Walk away, remove yourself to an island
Seize the day and then draw the curtain to it all

Ohoo, psychotopia
I ain't got no reason and rhyme
Ohoo, demophobia
I can't stand the world next to mine
I'm just a stranger in time

I'm out of sight, embrace the night, walking free
Fancy me
Until the grave a freedom slave, walking free
Sanctuary

Hello my friend, what's up how do you do?
I'm doing fine, so fine and how are you?
I'm doing fine, so fine

Oh please will someone get me out of here
Where is my magic wand to disappear?
I'm doing time

He's doing time
I walk the line
He walks the line

Walk away, and feel yourself in the silence
Solitude, reload, and be ready for it all

Ohoo, psychotopia
I ain't got no reason and rhyme
Ohoo, demophobia
I can't stand the world next to mine
Ohoo, psychotopia
I ain't got no reason and rhyme
It comes and it goes, demophobia
I can't stand the world next to mine
I'm just a stranger in time

I'm just a stranger, just another stranger
Mmh, another stranger in time
6. Fire and Ice (8:28)
Here comes the pain again today, I feel like eating fire
That slowly burns my soul away, I wish that I could hide out

Screaming, I'm-a-walking in the dark
I feel so alone

We were fire and ice, were boiling together
But we lost all the power on the way
What is left of the dream are the footsteps we printed
But the dead will be rising again

Feel fire and ice

I try to sleep with open eyes, awake in silent grieving
The forces of the spell hold tight, but I just grab my demons

Screaming, I'm-a-walking in the dark
I feel so alone

We were fire and ice, were boiling together
But we lost all the power on the way
What is left of the dream are the seeds that we planted
But the dead will be rising again

Fill me up, take me to the light
Take me to the place where there is no fight
Smashed to the ground, back in the air
Hailed to the cross with the witches to burn

Free your mind, kick your ass
Stick to your guns and move it fast
Grab the torch, be the spark
And my friend get ready to burn

Screaming, it was tearing me apart
So lost and alone
Now I'm breathing, and I feel the beating heart
The sadness is gone

Fire and ice, boiling together
We had lost all the power on the way
But the trees that have grown
From the seeds we had planted
Let us know that we're finally home

We were fire and ice, boiling together
We had lost all the power on the way
We are living the dream and it keeps us united
Now the dead will be rising to play
The dead will be rising

Feel fire and ice
Still boiling...
7. Left Behind (4:26)
Betrayed by the fruits of temptation
But I'm still hungry
Enlightened by pain that followed

Exposed you...
I know you

And when I close my eyes to rest
Falling apart
The memories will last
Filling this place in my heart
A victim of true love
Uncovered your true face
I feel the damage done

Betrayed by the fruits of temptation
I taste them
I swallow...

And when lay my head to rest
Falling apart
The memories will last
Filling this place in my heart
I see the stars drowning
But my heart will find a way

HELPLESS, SO HELPLESS
Left behind, you're left behind

Betrayed by the fruits of temptation
I taste them
I swallow...

And when I close my eyes to rest
This time I will remain
To see you passing by
This song's for you to blame
The victims of your love
Uncovered your true face

And will you still wait here?
8. All or Nothing (5:12)
You say I waste my life away
As I lie gazing at the sun
A torn and twisted mind to overcome

I was and I will always be
Close to the edge of sanity
But that's what made it good
What made me strong

I'm moving on
Thinking nothing's wrong
And I keep holding on to what I've known

All or nothing, the world is calling me
The road is open wide but never free
You see
All or nothing, my heart is torn in two
I never had a chance to be with you

Again I'm gone and far away
And though a part of me would stay
The other me keeps traveling further on

I'm moving on
Singing a different song
And I become estranged to what I've known

All or nothing, the world they gave to me
The road was open wide but never free
You see
All or nothing, my heart is torn in two
There never was a chance to be with you

All or nothing, is all I gave to you
The pain inside not ending 'til it's through
All or nothing, the "all" was mine to be
The nothingness inside was always free

All or nothing, all or nothing

The road's not ending here for me
9. Burning Bridges (3:42)
So you've been thrown into despair
And your loved one doesn't care
All you want to find is truth
Inside the innocence of youth

And you think you're all alone
Being hungry to the bone
And it always seemed to be
That the others cannot see
That you are here

Run
Burn the Bridges down
Fuck the world and take your chances
(Fuck the world that takes your chances)
Overcome the sky-high fences

Run
Burn the Bridges down
Let them crash on your defenses
Come on, climb the sky-high fences

So now you've come to roam the streets
To run away from the hand that beats
The mind is broken to the core

And your heart you feel no more
And while you think it won't get worse
You will call another curse
Your pride you sold for a diamond leash
And you will never know what's peace
Just let it go...
10. Follow the Sun (4:32)
Masquerader in the streets
Perpetrator, blazing heat
Call of duty, in the wild
Sleeping beauty, devil's child

I'm on my out from this hell
Thou shalt be unforgiven
The time in life to break the spell
No, this is my soul

Follow the sun - and you will always find me
Follow the sun - there ain't no spell to bind me
Follow the sun - and walk into the never
Follow the sun - and we shall live forevermore

Evil eyeball, stand and stare
Constant liars bring despair
Call of duty in the night
Raging fury running wild

I'm on my way out from this hell
This ain't no place for living
The time in life to break the spell
Evil and Satan be gone

Follow the sun - and you will always find me
Follow the sun - there ain't no chains to bind me
Follow the sun - and we shall live forever
Follow the sun - we're riding through the never

I've walked beyond the gates of hell
Unfaithful, undying
It's time to break the evil spell
My soul shall be mine

Follow the sun - and you will always find me
Follow the sun - there ain't no chains to bind me
Just walk away - and live your dream forever
Follow the sun - we're riding through the never
