British Lion Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. This Is My God (4:57)
I've been going round in circles
History reveals its echoes
Do you show a little kindness
I can see only blindness

I've been searching for our salvation
I can taste this desperation
Hide away this face in shame
Come on take me as I am

Come on and save me
Come on and free me
Come on and hear me
'Cause this is my God
I've found my God
This is my love... my love

You are the calm I am the war
Sleeping beauty in my bed
There's a whisper from the life force
And the season's running scared

Come on and save me
Come on and free me
Come on and touch me
'Cause this is my God
I've found my God
You are my love... my love

Blessed are the children
That are raised among killers
The making of an Einstein
The making of a Hitler

Can you hear me
For I'm only bleeding

Come on and save me
Come on and free me
Come on and touch me
'Cause this is my God
I've found my God
You are my love... my love

See me... hear me...
Touch me... love me...
2. Lost Worlds (4:59)
All that I know is changing now
Winter will come around too soon
Just like the leaves are changing colour
My face is like an open book

All that I see through my eyes
I must have something to believe
Leave me today I’m snowblind
The world is biting at my heels

I used to dream of mountains
That i would climb some day
I used to dream of lost worlds
That I would find some day

Don’t tell me it's science that blinds me
But rather i need some humanity
Let's question of faith in a purity

All that I’ve done in my life
I have lost friends and brothers
Now that I reach for new heights
Now that I rediscover

I used to dream of pictures
That i would paint some day
I used to live in my fear
I've been reborn today

Don’t tell me it's science that blinds me
But rather i need some humanity
Let's question of Gods and a purity

I used to dream of mountains
I used to dream of lost worlds
I used to live in my fear
I used to dream of pictures

I read the headlines today
How your young breath was taken away
There was a picture of your friends
Never to come this way again

And you look like someone I know
Open my eyes I must go

The sun goes down I tramp the dirt
The water's warm and you can't swim
The morn is colder feeling younger
You can lie every once in a while
I read the headlines today...
3. Karma Killer (5:29)
With every wish a price to pay
You ridicule but things they do change
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
Deeper and deeperI'm falling

Come, where are you dreamers now
And for all our wrong
We'll make our own history

Karma killer, come together now
Come together now, karma killer

All your life of torment ans tease
You're strong in numbers and put us on
our kneew
I wish I could shed this skin from my body
Voices are calling in your head

Why, why must it be this way
I cry this is your bitter reign

Karma killer, come together now
Come together now, karma killer

Bullets will fly on a cold black birthday
You want to feel what it's like to go down


Why, why must it be this way
And I cry
You've made your own

Karma killer, come together now
Come together now, karma killer

Judgement is here
Darkness will fall
Into the unknow
Karma killer
4. Us Against the World (4:12)
Promises made out of fright
Hands held tight all is calm tonight
I came here looking for a friend
To start again and it's goodbye my love

And everything went wrong today
I close my eyes but it won't go away
And we were raised to do what's right
And not react to whatever's is thrown at us
And these games that we play...

Together we try and together we cry
It's us against the world
The hurt that they give 'cause we're
licensed to live
It's us against the world

A gunshot echo in the night
No end in sight
I'm in the hands of luck
Came here for some peace of mind
Would you be kind
And help me on my way

But everything went wrong today
I close my eyes but it won't go away
And we were raised to do what's right
And not react to whatever's is thrown at us
And these wars that we rage...

Together we try and together we cry
It's us against the world
The pain that they give 'cause we're
licensed to live
It's us against the world

Sister and brother father and mother
Something has got to give can't go
much further
And these games that we play...

Together we try and together we cry
It's us against the world
The hurt that they give 'cause we're
licensed to live
It's us against the world

Together we try and together we cry
It's us against the world
The hurt that they give 'cause we're
licensed to live
It's us against the world
5. The Chosen Ones (6:28)
Here they come walking with fire in
their eyes
In these lands only the tough can survive
Here in the heartland you hear their cries
We'll fly the colours 'til the day that we die

Hear the sound the backstreet dance
has begun
Walking proud the thundering hearts
on the run

Locked out on a cold winter's night
Just children we've got to survive

We are the chosen ones of the night
So young to be left all alone in the fight
Even though we are the strays
Say a prayer for better days
And they'll never break us down
'Cause we are the chosen ones

Just a boy abandoned and left on the street
Kicked on the outside but inside you can't
touch me

I'm rising out of the gutters and pain
Take on the world you'll remember my name

We are the chosen ones of the night
So young to be left all alone in the fight
But you'll never see us cry
'Cause we're never going to die
And they'll never break us down
'Cause we are the chosen ones

We are the chosen ones of the night
And we're rising up
6. A World Without Heaven (7:02)
These days are sad and lonely
True love has passed me by
I want you one and only
Too bad these tears I cry

How many heartaches must we take
How many more times must we break

We've all been caught out in the rain
The rain will fall...
The rain will fall

These days of roaring thunder
Come crashing to our world
No trust no heart no saviour
No place to hide my girl

The cross keeps on burning like before
I don't want to see it anymore
This world of ours is worth fighting for

A world without heaven
A world where the angels used to fly
A world where the rain falls
Now the rain is falling from my eyes

These days make me want to cry
These days we're all living a lie
We go through life and search for heaven

The wind blows wild and free now
Got to catch me a ride
My love come follow me now
Don't let my dream just die

'Cause you may not get a second chance
Got to live life the best we can
Tonight I'll chase your nightmares away

From a world without heaven
A world where the angels used to fly
A world where the rain falls
Now the rain is falling from my eyes

These days make me want to cry
These days we're all living a lie
We go through life and search for heaven
7. Judas (4:59)
Like velvet to your touch
I put your name upon my arm
Delicious to my eyes
My bird of paradise

I thought that I knew you
I was so happy
You were my lover
And we were gospel

My substitute for sadness
Like porcelain in pieces

I believed in you I bowed down to you
I was the fool I loved you too
And you took me up and you shook me down
You're Judas you're Judas

Your apocalypse was mine
My sweet Mary
A tidal wave is coming
Wash away wash away

We drank of the water
Tripped on the rainbow
I was so happy
Is there a ghost of a chance now

Won't someone talk to me now
I'm porcelain in pieces in pieces

I believed in you I bowed down to you
I was the fool I loved you too
And you took me up and you shook
me down
You're Judas you're judas my Judas... Judas

Lover I thought I knew you
Say goodbye to the old world
Behind the man eyes of a child
I hear I see you well

Would you talk with me
Come and walk with me
Give me a sign
Give me a clue

'Cause I loved you I was the fool
Believe in me believe in me
I'm Judas yeah Judas... Judas
8. Eyes of the Young (5:25)
Can you recall now the way it used to be
Kicking at the world we didn't need to see
Just you and me

We were young hearts riding in the sun
We never felt the pain
This world was giving everyone

We could do anything and leave the
rest behind
And nothing could stand in our way
The truth behind the lies

In the eyes of the young
In the eyes of the young
I want to go back to my days
Back to my yesterdays
When all my dreams were so real
To the eyes of the young

And through young eyes
I was born to be a king
I didn't know just how
But I'd bring this world to its knees

And those days are gone
The truth is on the streets
In the killing fields of life
Wasn't like this in my dreams

And as my father's words
Slowly fade away
Well those days are gone forever
Only in dreams at night

In the eyes of the young
In the eyes of the young
I want to go back to my days
Back to my yesterdays
When all my dreams were so real
To the eyes of the young

And as I'm walking late at night
With a memory that'll never die
And all the stars are shining
Like tears in my eyes
And I would give anything
To see you again
Can you hear me now... I hear you

Share my dream with me...
9. These Are the Hands (4:29)
These are the faces I know
This is the land I was born to
These are the people I know
This is the place that I come from

Don't ask me why
Why nothing stays the same
'Cause I've had to lie
It made me who I am

We live and we die
We're willing to try
Do you know who you are

And this is your time
In a new land of crime
Do you know who you are

This is the city I know
Where I was born and abandoned
These are the faces I know
The smiles cracked with the
movement of life

And of pace I am a running man
You win and you lose
'Cause nothing stays the same

We live and we die
We're willing to try
Do you know who you are

Well this is your time
In a new land of crime
Do you know who you are

These are the hands that build our future
These are the hands we're one
step closer
You are the face to launch a thousand dreams
These are the hands to build a future
These are the hands we're one step further
You are the sons you are the father

These are the hands that build our future
These are the hands we're one step closer
You were the face to launch a
thousand dreams

These are the hands that build our future
These are the hands we're one step closer
You are the son you are the father

Do you know who you are
Do you know who you are
Do you know who you are
10. The Lesson (4:15)
As I walk through corridors
Find a room to rest
Lay down there upon the bed
Rest my weary head

A labyrinth in suspension
Open up the veins
Take me to a dimension
Free me of this pain

Everything and all that I know
Is changing now
I wish I could slow things down

You can't predict
'Cause nothing's set in stone
A lesson learned
A lesson that's too late for learning

As I walk this lonely road
The sun begins to fade
There's many Gods and many ways
But I worship the wind

Now I could've done things better
Didn't mean to be unkind
And I could never cause you hurt
The last thing on my mind

Everything and all that I know
Is changing now
I wish I could slow things down

You can't predict
'Cause nothing's set in stone
A lesson learned
A lesson that's too late for learning
