My God-Given Right Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Heroes (3:51)
[Music: Gerstner, Lyrics: Gerstner]

Look, the homeless on the street
The little shoeblack on his knees
A good heart and the daily fighter
Policemen, gangster and the priest
Wheelchair woman on her feet
Chinese smoker with his dragon lighter

They're all fighting through their lives
Against their enemies
Reaching out for the light

Everyone can be a hero
We are, we are
Sometimes up then down to zero
We are, we are
Heroes, heroes

Look this old man's only teeth
When he smiles underneath
Searching for some food on the ground
The musician at the store
Selling his guitar for naught
It's rent that matters not the sound

They're all fighting through their lives
Against their enemies
Reaching out for the light

Everyone can be a hero
We are, we are
Sometimes up then down to zero
We are, we are
Heroes

Everyone can be a hero
We are, we are
Sometimes up then down to zero
We are, we are
Heroes
Everyone can be a hero
We are, we are
Sometimes up then down to zero
We are, we are
Heroes, heroes
2. Battle's Won (4:53)
[Music: Weikath, lyrics: Weikath]

Ohhhhhh!
Yeah!
Come on!

Shoot down their legions they die in vain
helpless against your advanced weaponry
what they will get is their names on display
maybe a casket if there's funds left to pay these at all

Left in the swamps bent over rocks
that's the glorious take of their lives
what they just got is eternal fame
rats and dogs devouring their sorry remains

You made 'em suffer and pay their price
watched from far above them
however their history has just been changed
their past is gone once more

Stand tall
your battle's won
all foes defeated, done
and feasts achieved
with fate on your side
rejoice for evermore
victor to the core
you excelled by all means
went on and on

Yeah!

There's more dispatches for killing sprees
checking out grounds for the next genocide
greed for profit advances being paid
tech shares soar balanance sheet rising up high

Can you remember that hero we had
who bombed that lot to ashes?
Ask is whereabouts summon him now
employ that guy once more

Stand tall
your battle's won
all foes defeated, done
and feasts achieved
with fate on your side
rejoice for evermore
victor to the core
you excelled by all means
went on and on

Ohhhhhh!

Stand tall
your battle's won
all foes defeated, done
and feasts achieved
with fate on your side
rejoice for evermore
victor to the core
you excelled by all means
went on and ooooooh

Stand tall
your battle's won
battle's won
your battle's won
Ohhhhhh!
3. My God-Given Right (3:30)
[Music: Deris, lyrics: Deris]

Why should I wait, what is left there for me?
I come to claim
To win the game
Why should I plea for my fair and right move?
I come to play
I come to stay

I don't wanna bitch around no more
I don't wanna stand back anymore

It's my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It's my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There's nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There's nothing to find
If I stay behind
It's my right
My god-given right

Why should I lose if I am meant to win?
I know I can
I've got a plan
All that they told me is right and so wrong
I went through schools
Found my own rules

I don't wanna bitch around no more
I don't wanna stand back anymore

It's my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It's my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There's nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There's nothing to find
If I stay behind
It's my right

My god-given right
It's my god-given right
My god-given right
It's my god-given right

It's my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It's my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There's nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There's nothing to find
If I stay behind
It's my right
My god-given right
4. Stay Crazy (4:05)
[Music: Deris, lyrics: Deris]

Could we ever stop the thing we dare to live and love?
I doubt it
Could we ever picture to be back at home
And stay wholehearted?

We don't need to talk about it
We will never fear or doubt it
On and on
We sing our songs
Until we are gone

We wanna stay crazy
As fresh as a daisy
We wanna stay easy
And don't stop believing
Life's a show
Oh, a word and a blow
We wanna stay crazy
And never get lazy
We wanna live our way
Each day as a heyday
Life's a show
Oh, we wanna stay crazy

Are we ever looking back with sorrow and regret?
I doubt it
If there ever was a better way to live a dream
We found it

We don't need to talk about it
We will never fear or doubt it
On and on
We sing our songs
Until we are gone

We wanna stay crazy
As fresh as a daisy
We wanna stay easy
And don't stop believing
Life's a show
Oh, a word and a blow
We wanna stay crazy
And never get lazy
We wanna live our way
Each day as a heyday
Life's a show
Oh, we wanna stay crazy

We wanna stay crazy
We wanna stay crazy

We wanna stay crazy
As fresh as a daisy
We wanna stay easy
And don't stop believing
Life's a show
Oh, a word and a blow
We wanna stay crazy
And never get lazy
We wanna live our way
Each day as a heyday
Life's a show
Oh, we wanna stay crazy

We wanna stay crazy
We wanna stay crazy
We wanna stay crazy
5. Lost in America (3:35)
[Music: Deris, lyrics: Deris]

We are stranded in Belize
Ten hours we must wait
They started with a flight show
So the airport opens late
Nobody really told us
Nobody seems to know
Now we're sitting here all drinking
We hope to catch the show

Finally they make the call
We toddle to the boarding
In the plane we're drunk and loud
When the captain gives a shout

We are high
We are far
But we wonder where we are
We are lost
Lost in America
There's a cloud
There's a star
We should plunder the sky bar
We are lost
Lost in America

Now the captain says the gauges
Don't really seem to be
In the best trustworthy status
As far as he could see
Some ridiculous disturbance
Or a simple full breakdown
Makes it hopeless to impossible
To measure where we're bound for

Finally they make the call
We toddle to the boarding
In the plane we're drunk and loud
When the captain gives a shout

We are high
We are far
But we wonder where we are
We are lost
Lost in America
There's a cloud
There's a star
We should plunder the sky bar
We are lost
Lost in America

We are high
We are far
But we wonder where we are
We are lost
Lost in America
There's a cloud
There's a star
We should plunder the sky bar
We are lost
Lost in America

We are high
We are far
But we wonder where we are
We are lost
Lost in America
6. Russian Roulé (3:53)
[Music: Deris/Gerstner, lyrics: Deris]

Can anybody tell me how I gotta do it right?
I need a revelation
Can anybody tell me how to turn back to the light?
I'm yearning for salvation

I don't know
Which way to go
So I
Come out and play
I come out and play
Russian roulé
Come out and play
Russian roulé

Better to die trying than to rot away in vain
The last stop to damnation
Better to be fighting for a better life in pain
Than living on probation
I don't know

Which way to go
So I
Come out and play
I come out and play
Russian roulé
Come out and play
Russian roulé

Somebody tell me how to live my life
Must I break the rules?
Somebody tell me how I have to fight
To live to win, to live up high

Come out and play
Come out and play
Russian roulé

Come out and play
I come out and play
Russian roulé

Come out and play
Russian roulé

Russian roulé
Russian roulé
Russian roulé
7. The Swing of a Fallen World (4:53)
[Music: Deris, lyrics: Deris]

Achiever, believer
You saint and cold deceiver
It's the swing of a fallen world
Religion, tactician
Dark horse and politician
It's the swing of a fallen world
Betray, but you won't get away

The damage is done
A million to one
I bet we will witness the war of the sun
The game that we play
Is now here to stay
We never can stop what we've sent on its way, no
It's the swing of a fallen world
The swing of a fallen world

Impeacher, false preacher
Grand man and paltry creature
It's the swing of a fallen world
Manslaughter, garroter
You've slain, you rough-housed daughter
It's the swing of a fallen world
Bye bye, you too will die

The treasure we had
So crazy and mad
Was sold out by people who cannot be glad
A handful of greed
A contagious seed
A handful of assholes who never recede
This adverse evolution
Mankind knows no solution
It's the swing of a fallen world

The damage is done
A million to one
I bet we will witness the war of the sun
The game that we play
Is now here to stay
We never can stop what we've sent on its way, no
It's the swing of a fallen world
The swing of a fallen world
8. Like Everybody Else (4:04)
[Music: Gerstner, lyrics: Gerstner]

Dreamer, why don't you think like everybody else?
People, don't you care 'bout what they say?
Deceivers, they break you down and make you pay
Brothers, they don't understand any word you say

All your life you are fighting
They're trying to force you in

When the time has come
You'll not be alone
Cause walls broke down
They'll see they were wrong
When the time has come
There'll be more of you
With all their strength
You'll show them the truth

Mistreaters, they don't care, but fear your will
Sisters, they don't understand any word you say

All your life you are fighting
They're trying to force you in

When the time has come
You'll not be alone
Cause walls broke down
They'll see they were wrong
When the time has come
You ain't no fool
Cause walls broke down
They stop being cruel
When the time has come
There'll be more of you
With all their strength
You'll show them the truth

Dreamer, why can't you be like everybody else?
9. Creatures in Heaven (6:36)
[Music: Weikath, lyrics: Weikath]

Are you waiting on something profound in your life?
Something to touch your core?
Making up for what seems millions of years
Reaping the goods, but not sure...

Come along, come along
Can you see there's more?
Not just defeat vain attempts to do things right
More than the toil to endure each day
Or the ache you forget and leave behind

If creatures roamed the space in heaven
They're angels, beasts, or supermen
Do they ease attaining things
No one believed you'd achieve?
So once you may ascend to heaven
Someone there has made it so
You could be the one they've been waiting for

Still running about seeking sense in your life
What you couldn't make count before
Taking much of your time is grieving about things
Well, you could care less, what's that for...

Come along, come along
Can you see there's more?
Not just defeat vain attempts to do things right
More than the toil to endure each day
Or the ache you forget and leave behind

Come along, come along
Can you see there's more?
Not just defeat vain attempts to do things right
More than the toil to endure each day
Or the ache you forget and leave behind

If creatures roamed the space in heaven
They're angels, beasts, or supermen
Do they ease attaining things
No one believed you'd achieve?
So once you may ascend to heaven
Someone there has made it so
You could be the one they've been waiting for
10. If God Loves Rock 'n' Roll (3:21)
[Music: Deris, lyrics: Deris]

Ticking, ticking, ticking
Always counting right down
The clock strikes ten
You still wear your old gown
Come on, come on, come on
Get the hell up and stay
Alert and strong
Try to find your right way

People say it's wrong
People say it's bad
Others say that god's a little mad
Secretly he'd wear the black, you know

If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better protect my soul
'cause heaven seems to be
The place I wanna be
If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better reset my goal
Do everything I can
To be a rocking man
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Leather suits you better
Got to let your hair grow
Take the black and enjoy the new show
Welcome to an army spreading over the world
Wild and proud brothers
Haven't you heard?

People say it's wrong
People say it's bad
Others say that god's a little mad
Secretly he'd wear the black, you know

If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better protect my soul
'cause heaven seems to be
The place I wanna be
If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better reset my goal
Do everything I can
To be a rocking man
Yeah, yeah, yeah

If god loves rock 'n' roll
Even in heaven you need a bass guitar
A guitar and a second guitar
Here we go...

If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better protect my soul
'cause heaven seems to be
The place I wanna be
If god loves rock 'n' roll
I'd better reset my goal
Do everything I can
To be a rocking man

If god loves rock 'n' roll
If god loves rock 'n' roll
If god loves rock 'n' roll
11. Living on the Edge (5:19)
[Music: Grosskopf, lyrics: Grosskopf]

He was a guy who had no education
He never learned to love and now he hates society
He never had somebody who would listen
He never had a friend that he could talk to when he's down

He has to suffer mental discomposure
He never learned to pay, he's only taking what he needs
His only friends are hate and violation
To get arrested some day is his only destination

Too late the damage's done is everything you hear
And when you're dead and gone nobody cries a tear

Carry on now, carry on
Living life in danger, living on the edge
Carry on now, carry on
Living like there's nothing left to lose

He's hating light
He loves to live in shadows
Where he can hide his fears
When he is crying secret tears
He's hating light
He loves to hide in darkness
Where he can hide his feelings and emotions
His enemies

Too late the damage's done is what they always say
You never get your chance you lose it anyway

Carry on now, carry on
Living life in danger just like living on the edge
Carry on now, carry on
Living like there's nothing left to lose

You never had the chance to prove
That you’re a man full of emotions
You only learned how to survive
In your environment of darkness
You build a fortress 'round your soul

Carry on now, carry on
Living life in danger, just like living on the edge
Carry on now, carry on
Living like there's nothing left to lose
12. Claws (5:52)
[Music: Weikath, lyrics: Weikath]

I spread my wings and fly
I'm the ruler of the skies
Avoided my detection
So I've been here all my life
Floating up, diving down, hovering left and right
There's no escaping me
I'll make you out at night

Up from the sky I peek below
Seeking easy prey
To find the rodent that you are
Dive forward, in a flash
I'm taking aim and closing in
Your life and limb are at my mercy

I sink my claws
Into your flesh
Tear it up
Rip it all apart
You've got no choice, I will prevail

I fly around and laugh
Like the rascal that I am
See my own reflection in a lake
As I sweep across the land
I crave a goat but the dogs are out
Running left and right
There's no escaping these
I better make it home by night

Up from the sky I peek below
Seeking easy prey
To find the rodent that you are
Dive forward, in a flash
I'm taking aim and closing in
Your life and limb are at my mercy

I sink my claws
Into your flesh
Tear it up
Rip it all apart
You've got no choice, I will prevail

I sink my claws
Into your flesh
Tear it up
Rip it all apart
You've got no choice, I will prevail

I spread my wings and fly
13. You, Still of War (7:21)
[Music: Gerstner/Deris, Lyrics: Gerstner]

Wake up

Alone I find myself on my knees
I see those footsteps on this crystal frozen sea
No bird, no tree nor any other living creature seen
Wind the only thing I can hear
Cloud transitions passing by above my head
While I'm moving I see my feet are deep blood red

Hey
I find myself alone
What happened suddenly?
Hey
I find myself alone
Is this my destiny?

I spread my wings and fly to find those of my kind
As I will not survive the loneliness
Don't wanna let you down no matter who you are
I can't believe I am the only one
Ah, you still of war
Ah, you still of nevermore
Ah, you still of war
Hush

Frozen cities, ashes fallen off the trees
I killed those who chose me for a nuclear decease

Hey
I'm made in fire
What happened suddenly?
Hey
Exploding is my desire
Is this my destiny?

I spread my wings and fly to find those of my kind
As I will not survive the loneliness
Don't wanna let you down no matter who you are
I can't believe I am the only one
No!

Hey
I'm made of steel
What happened suddenly?
Hey
I just eject from seals
Is this my destiny?

I spread my wings and fly to find those of my kind
As I will not survive the loneliness
Don't wanna let you down no matter who you are
I can't believe I am the only one
Ah, you still of war
Ah, you still of nevermore
Ah, you still of war

All these tears I've cried
Flowing into seas
All the memories gone
Of this human breed
All these years I've tried
To be just your threat
All the triggers made you
And me a hand of death
All the creatures died
New generations bloom
Frontier ahead, on an airplane
Led me into doom

No, you still of war
No, you still of war
No!
