Performocracy Lyrics

Submitted by level Eagles
1. I Want It All (4:01)
Nothing is to complicated
Nothing is too distant here
Not a door for me, obstructive
I´m unstoppable

Anyone upon this planet
Can defeat the impossible
No one is above the other
We are equal

Tonight I´m not afraid of living
And I don´t ever want to waste my time

All! I just want it all! Or want nothing at all
This is the chance I´m taking
All! I just want it all! Or want nothing at all
This is the life I´m given
I just want it all

There´s burninig flame I follow
Heart and soul a touch of grace
Cause tomorrow waits for no one
A treasure´s waiting there

If there´s no gold under the rainbow
It´s still a ride I never will forget

All! I just want it all! Or want nothing at all
This is the chance I´m taking
All! I just want it all! Or want nothing at all
Make me a life worth living
2. Until Our Kingdom Falls (3:05)
When you travel through the darkness

Here I am armed and ready
Well I don´t know what you may have heard
Talk is cheap I´m still standing
And I´m ready for your command

So get yourself together
Stop acting like a fool
I say it´s now or never
and they don´t make rules

When you travel through the darkness
and it´s hard to find the way
I will stand by you UNTIL OUR KINGDOM FALLS
And when you sail into the dark night
with no stars to guide your way
I will still follow you UNTIL OUR KINGDOM FALLS

Let´s purify what we´re got here
Let´s give them something they can talk about
It´s burning hot, our condition
We´ve got the fire se let´s let it go

I say it´s now or never
and they don´t make the rules

When you travel through the darkness
and itś hard to find the way
I will stand by you UNTIL OUR KINGDOM FALLS
And when you sail into the dark night
with no stars to guide your way
I will still follow you UNTIL OUR KINGDOM FALLS
3. Father to a Son (4:11)
I’m gonna spend my money on a motorbike
Like spitfire jet, I’m gonna cross the sky
I’m gonna tame the cobra when it coils to strike
I wanna feed the fire, the one that never dies

You think I’m crazy, but I’ll never stop

All because of you, I’m holding on
To the dreams you gave me
Father to a son
Whatever I’ve become
Oh, I will pass it on
Inconceivable it seems
But I hope that you can see
Your son

People I meet say I’m a lot like you
No matter my denial inside I know it’s true
When the times are changing and I see the past
I can feel the burden that was on your back

They said “You’re crazy!” but you never stopped

All because of you, I’m holding on
To the dreams you gave me
Father to a son
Whatever I’ve become
Oh, I will pass it on
Inconceivable it seems
But I hope that you can see
Your son

And the peace you never found in life
Will find you on the other side…
4. I Believe in You (4:12)
Why do I live with so much fear?
I’m filled with doubt, I’m close to tears
Is there truth to a word they say?
I can’t decide, should I go or stay?

Black is the night, I can taste the dark
I look to the sky, I wait for a spark
I know the end is drawing near,
The choir of angels is all I hear

Oh, you keep me hangin’ on
And I can’t let you go
I prayed this day would come (Now, forever)
Seasons come and seasons go, I know
We must carry on
The fall from grace was long
But I believe in you

Blinded by the light of a coming train
I try to escape but it’s all in vain
Can this be real or a haunted dream
If I awake, tell me what it means

Barren lands ridden by a plague
I look around what is left to save
No way out this is our fate
The band plays on go save yourself!
5. Cuts like a Knife (4:11)
Every step she takes
And all the moves she makes
You are right behind....with a bleedin' heart
And time again i tell you she's gone for good
And still you wait

It cuts like a knife but you don't mind the pain
You pray for your life and slowly go insane
The s.o.s you're sending no one seems to hear
Cuts like a knife but you enjoy the pain
The pain, the pain

You're locked outside the door
You're pride's been bought and sold
Oh you think she's what you need
but still you bleed

It cuts like a knife but you don't mind the pain
You pray for your life and slowly go insane
The s.o.s you're sending no one seems to hear
Cuts like a knife but you enjoy the pain
The pain, the pain
6. As Time Is Passing (5:13)
I was born upon the lakeside,
Back in 1969,
I was the last son of a preacher,
A time of hope and joy.

A giant leap was made for mankind,
You did your best to catch the moon,
Right behind you we we're waiting,
But when you turned around,
No one could be found.

I guess i'll never understand you,
And all the choices that you made,
I hope someday i can forgive you,
I will try as time is passing by.

I passed the house we spent the summers,
That old tree we used to climb,
Mmmm, despite the beauty of the setting,
I can't deny, how i have felt like crying.

I guess i'll never understand you,
And all the choices that you made,
I hope someday i can forgive you,
I will try as time is passing by.

Not a time for confrontation,
You had your way when i had mine,
And all the more that's all pretention,
You said goodbye, (goodbye goodbye)
Goodbye (goodbye goodbye)

I guess i'll never understand you,
And the choices that you made,
I hope someday i can forgive you,
Ooh you know that i will try,
As time, time is passing by.

I will never understand you,
And the hurt you kept inside,
Can you hear me if you try,
Well i refuse to be a victim,
Hope someday i can forgive you,
You know that i will try,
As time is passing,
I will try,
As time is passing,
Time is passing by.
7. Love Is All (4:51)
Beating drums through the night
Flaming lights in the sky
Marching feet, fisted hands
For a cause I don’t understand

Hiding low and pray it will pass
Maybe there’ll be day at last
Where the children used to play
Lies broken glass and fields of clay

All the good that is gone
In this life that we’re given
My absolution seems not enough
‘cause still the tender turns to tough
In desperation we try
To understand why
And the destruction that you bring
Don’t you know…? Will never solve a thing

No truth, no religion
No oath you are given
No knowledge of history
Can seem to reveal our mystery
No faith and no writing
No law and no fighting
No decree and no hidden sign
Can make us deny
We are one and love is all

Tell me when your task is done
Show me now the victory won
Will rock and stone start to sing?
Bleeding wounds heal again?

Oh… In desperation we try
To understand why
And the destruction that you bring
Don’t you know…? Will never solve a thing
8. Your Time Is Now (4:43)
We're out of memories, all our friends are enemies
Who's to say I'm not somebody else?
All out оf remedies, only words, no melodies
Lay my body down someplace else.

Hey, hold on! and don't you let it slip away
And be strong! cause there is no one else to blame

Your time is now! So come alive
Never let them catch you on the run
Know that you're not alone
All you need to know, the time is now!

Long gone before the storm,
All our words were broke and worn.
Did we win or lose in the end?
Lead us down the wolf s trail,
All our pleads to no avail.
Take us to the den and show us in.

Hey, hold on! and don't you let it slip away
And be strong! cause there is no one else to blame

Your time is now! So come alive
Never let them catch you on the run
Know that you're not alone
All you need to know, the time is now!

Tonight, maybe it's time to stop believing
We had our chance, our hopes and fears, but to what end?
Someday, I pray we'll meet again my friend
For one last toast before we go, how did we, lose it all?
9. Action! (4:05)
My head is aching, tick-tock it's ready to explode
As I'm awaking, I'm about to see the truth
I think you know
I give it all now and work my fingers to the bone
Your false alliance say you're with me, then you let go
A turn of the coin

So get in the ring if what you said mean a thing
Now when you're under the gun you either fight or you run

Your action! So shut your mouth
Your action! Your talk I'll do without
Reaction and not your doubts
Your action! is what I talk about

The time I wasted will never ever come again
I learned my lesson
The sad part is I'm losing a friend
It's time to let go
10. Bring Back the Night (5:16)
All I need is just one more try
To bring back the night
I would never come through
If it wasn't for you

I am the sky, I am the sun
I spin the wheel, I aim the gun
I am the night, I am the dark
I am the lightning, I am the spark.

Oh, we're a long, long way from home
Oh, we're a long, long way from where we need to go

All I need is just one more try
To bring back the night
I would never come through
If it wasn't for you
All I have is just one more time
To make it alright
I will always be true
There's no way without, way without you

I am love and I am hate
I destroy and I create
Now I am the snow on the mountain side
I am the sea, I am the tide

Oh, we're a long, long way from home
Oh, we're a long, long way from where we need to go

All I need is just one more try...

Ooohhh.
We got a long, long way to go
Ooohhh...
11. Vampire's Call (3:55)
Look around, can't you see?
There's nothing left for you to find here
Yes I know it's in your eyes
All your lust and passion undercover

This is the night
The full moon is brighter than ever
Let's go you know I'm alright
So baby close your eyes and

Hold on tight
This will top all of your dreams
This night will last forever
So hear me know
Fear's out of sight
Put all your yesterdays behind
You're here with me forever

I come back from history
And time will shade this crime of passion
At the gates of eternity
With no reflection you will fly

Into the night
The fullmoon is brighter than ever
A love bite you will be alright
So baby close your eyes and...
12. Into the Quiet Night (4:23)
Tell me what is on your mind
I know it's not so bad
What it is you hope to find
Should not make you so sad
Flowers fold before the storm
But wish the rain to fall
Leave the weight of all the world
And hear their silent call

What is the answer
To all our desperate prayers
I cannot tell you
Why life seems so unfair

Into the quiet night
We make our way at last
All that we dare to dream
Will then be in the past
Hold me forever
Never let me go
Into the quiet night
We must walk alone
Walk alone

Take me by the hand I'll show you
Where it all went wrong
Quench the fire from your heart
'Cause pride won't make you strong
All the love you wish you had
May still be yours again
One more chance to let me know
You'll always be my friend
