City of Gold Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Underground (3:01)
Night after night
The passion burning deep in every soul
I can feel it
Night after night
We keep coming back
Together we are strong
I need it

Believe in yourself
And nobody else
We're holding the crown
Crushed by the sound
Believe in the underground

We'll win the fight
We're fighting and no one can keep us down
Feel the power
We'll take control
Fight and conquer all those who appose
It's the only way

Believe in yourself
And nobody else
We're holding the crown
Crushed by the sound
Believe in the underground

Night after night
The passion burning deep in every soul
I can feel it
Night after night
We keep coming back
Together we are strong
I need it

Believe in yourself
And nobody else
We're holding the crown
Crushed by the sound
Believe in the underground
2. City of Gold (4:51)
Bright eyes tell stories
The way the world used to be
White lies or lost glory
We were blind but used to see

They're screaming
Into the night
The blood of the innocent soul

City of gold
It's no time to be alive
City of gold
When you're lost in the city

Baptized in memories
The writing's on the wall
Truth dies with history
What really happened there

They're screaming
Into the night
The blood of the innocent soul

City of gold
It's no time to be alive
City of gold
When you're chosen to die
City of gold
The golden king, the serpent ring, the god of all
City of gold
The master of the sun

Darkness into shadow
The death of the sun
Reborn to rise again
Under the morning sky

They're screaming
Into the night
The blood of the innocent soul

City of gold
It's no time to be alive
City of gold
When you're chosen to die
City of gold
The golden king, the serpent ring, the god of all
City of gold
The master of the sun
3. Start Again (4:26)
There's no chance
For salvation
The world's spinning out of control
The last dance
Of dead nations
We're never getting out of the hole

Shut down, Reset, Destroy
Total, System, Destruction

The fire burns another day
Too young to die, too old to pray
Revolution paves the way
To burn the lines
And start again

Got sick, from radiation
Warning shots but we never learned
Low class frustration
Watch your city burn

Shut down, Reset, Destroy
Total, System, Destruction

The fire burns another day
Too young to die, too old to pray
Revolution paves the way
To burn the lines
And start again

The fire burns another day
Too young to die, too old to pray
Revolution paves the way
To burn the lines
And start again

To burn the lines and start again
To burn the lines and start again
4. Bad Decisions (3:58)
I live today but always think of tomorrow
The highroad isn't always easy to follow
Every path has its ups and downs
Spent too much time always hanging around

Oh I gotta get away
Don't want to lose these days
Oh I gotta find a way
It's hard to go when it's so easy to stay

Oh, I'm making bad decisions
Oh, I'm making bad decisions

You take a chance and it ends up the wrong way
A wrong turn can lead you astray
Time to wonder but no time to choose
But that's the way it goes win or lose

Oh I gotta get away
Don't want to lose these days
Oh I gotta find a way
It's hard to go when it's so easy to stay
Hey

Oh, I'm making bad decisions
Oh, I'm making bad decisions

When you follow your dreams
Your life can be lonely
And it's not always right
But it's always been my way

Oh I gotta get away
Don't want to lose these days
Oh I gotta find a way
It's hard to go when it's so easy to stay

Oh, I'm making bad decisions
Oh, I'm making bad decisions
5. Crossroads (4:23)
Take your empty life
I don't need it
Take your wasted time
I don't need it at all
Take your silver and gold I don't need it at all

Take your nine to five
I don't need it
Swallow your hollow lies
I don't need it at all
Let the hammer fall
I don't need it at all

The lust for freedom is calling us all
The harder you fight, the harder you fall
I know the meaning can be hard to see
And I don't want the weight of your sympathy

I want to see something new
I want to go places I've never been
I never know which way to go

I want to learn something new
I want to see faces I've never seen
I never know which way to go

Went along without having a reason
This empty life is a good damn prison
I can't relate or participate
I had to go 'cause I couldn't wait

I want to see something new
I want to go places I've never been
I never know which way to go

I want to learn something new
I want to see faces I've never seen
I never know which way to go

I'm waiting for the world to see
Not every mind is a puzzle piece
They can't all be forced to fit
And wander through life
Never giving a shit

I want to see something new
I want to go places I've never been
I never know which way to go

I want to learn something new
I want to see faces I've never seen
I never know which way to go
6. All for One (3:25)
Teacher listen to the words you speak
Do you practice what you preach
What do you hear when you're all alone
And in the end will you atone

We'll get to the top at the end of the day
Believe it's the truth when I say

All for one
One for all

Creator look at the world you made
The king of hearts in a deck of spades
You gave us vision without the sight
To find the answer, the meaning of life

All for one
One for all

We'll get to the top at the end of the day
Believe it's the truth when I say

All for one
One for all
7. Mind Control (3:21)
Living under mind control
But that ain't living at all
They give you what you want
But never what you need

I'm starving for life
I'm dying to live
Tell yourself it will be alright
The change isn't worth the fight

Don't think, don't speak
Just agree with everything they say
And if you tow the line
You'll be a slave until the day you die

Tell me what to think
Tell me how to feel
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
Watch what you say
Watch what you do
Cause the man is watching you

We're building it up and it's ready to fall
We reach to the top but it's always too tall
The system we have is the end of us all
Give up your dreams and surrender your soul

No one cares until it's too late
By the time you know it's already over
They'll bring you to your knees
Stop and watch you bleed
The secret's out
It might be too late
The only way to know for sure
Is smash the fucking gate

Tell me what to think
Tell me how to feel
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
Watch what you say
Watch what you do
Cause the man is watching you
8. Second Attack (3:40)
Only the strong survive
We are all born to die
Your move, the choice between hell or high-water
Too few can walk alone
Too fast to throw the stone
Lights out, you can't stop me now

This is a second attack
There is no time to react

Dive in, jump off the cliff
Go off and run the risk
The second attack
What's holding you back
Fuck it I'm going in
Living a life of sin
Hold on to what you believe

Songs of the night are calling to me
The voice of the siren I finally see

Calling out, calling to set me free
Calling out, the difference between you and me
The songs of the night are calling to me

These times will never last
Strong winds still holding fast
On and on so it's now or never
We are what we create
Start now, don't hesitate
The future is ours
The wealth and the scars

This is a second attack
There is no time to react
9. All I Want (4:18)
Before she came to me
Life was a mystery
Walking down another lonely road
I was hypnotized
Caught up in my own lies
And got lost along the way

I was waiting for someone
To come wash these sins away
I was waiting for someone
Someone like you

And I had to tell myself
No man is made of stone
And no one wants to die alone

But when you're waiting for someone else
It can be so hard to remember

She's all I want
She's everything I need
Yeah she's got it all
It only gets better
As time passes by
Yeah she's got it all
She's got it all

I had to turn away
And get a new perspective
Cause everything I need
Was staring back at me

But when you're waiting for someone else
It can be so hard to remember

She's all I want
She's everything I need
Yeah she's got it all
It only gets better
As time passes by
Yeah she's got it all

If you'll take me
You'll never be alone again
Until the end
We belong
Our love is strong
My friend
Until the end

Before she came to me
Life was a mystery
Walking down another lonely road

But when you're waiting for someone else
It can be so hard to remember

She's all I want
She's everything I need
Yeah she's got it all
It only gets better
As time passes by
Yeah she's got it all
She's got it all
10. Rise Up (3:28)
Do what you want
In a world that's so cut throat
They don't expect you to be
What you want to be
A rebel with no cause
Willing to fight to be free

Oh ready to rise up
Ready to fight for you
Fight for you

To live, to die, a free man
To live, to die, a free man

Don't back down
We refuse to obey
When the streets are on fire
We stand in the flames
Won't let fear control how we live
We've got too much to give

Oh ready to rise up
Ready to fight for you
Fight for you

Sometimes it feels like the end
Is so close
And everything, everything, feels
So far away
Sometimes it feels like the end
Is so close
And everything, everything, feels
So far away

Oh ready to rise up
Ready to fight for you
Fight for you

Oh ready to rise up
Ready to fight for you
Fight for you

To live, to die, a free man
To live, to die, a free man
11. Taken by Time (5:00)
I can't shake this feeling
The feeling you're still there
And I wish things could be the way they used to be
When you were here with me

So long
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I never thought you'd be
Taken by time

It's so hard to ease the pain
The pain in my heart
One day I'll be OK
The empty feeling fades away
See you beyond the grave

So long
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I never thought you'd be
Taken by time

I'll always remember
I'll always remember
I'll always remember
I'll always remember

So long
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I'll remember you
I never thought you'd be
Taken by time
12. Two Minutes to Midnight (Iron Maiden cover) (6:02)
Kill for gain or shoot to maim
But we don’t need a reason
The Golden Goose is on the loose
And never out of season.
Blackened pride still burns inside
This shell of bloody treason
Here’s my gun for a barrel of fun
For the love of living death

The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
Don’t you pray for my soul anymore
2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The blind men shout let the creatures out
We’ll show the unbelievers,
The Napalm screams of human flames
Of a prime time Belsen feast, yeah
As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat
And lick the gravy
We oil the jaws of the war machine
And feed it with our babies.

The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
Don’t you pray for my soul anymore
2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

The body bags and little rags of children torn in two,
And the jellied brains of those who remain
To put the finger right on you
As the madmen play on words and make us all
Dance to their song,
To the tune of starving millions
To make a better kind of gun.

The killer’s breed or the demon’s seed
The glamour, the fortune, the pain
Go to war again, blood is freedom’s stain
Don’t you pray for my soul anymore
2 minutes to midnight
The hands that threaten doom
2 minutes to midnight
To kill the unborn in the womb

Midnight... midnight... midnight... It's all night
Midnight... midnight... midnight... It's all night
