1. Set The World On Fire (4:29)
I shall give the vision of what is meant to be
All you have to know is that I hold the master key
I know your weakness and I can see your pain
You scream deliverance and I will pave the way

I'll set the world on fire
It's your time to retire
Because sooner or later
You're going to meet your maker

I'll give you what I think is best and what I know is right
And those who follow me, I'll give you strength and might
You pledge allegiance and I'll prevent your fall
I am your leader and know I'll rule you all

I'll set the world on fire
It's your time to retire
Because sooner or later
You're going to meet your maker

Your people are dying
Your people are crying out
That you must go down
Down, down, down, you must go down
Lets take them down
Now that it's over and all is said and done
You've turned the sky to black, no sign of the sun
Do you think the free world is going to wish you well
No god can save you now, you're going straight to hell

We've set your world on fire
You are now retired
Because sooner or later
We have to meet our maker
Set the world on fire.....
2. No Zone (2:48)
I've been living here a billon years or more
You're ready to burn me up, so get set for war
My world's been set on fire, like a knife in the back
This is your final warning, prepare for attack

Can't you hear me crying
Get ready for the nozone
Get ready!

To bite the hand that feeds you, it's like a time bomb ready to blow
You scorch and rape the land, look at Borneo
Too much, too little, too late, chemicals take to the air
They're gonna burn another hole in the sky, you'd better say your
prayers

Can't you hear me crying
I'm trying to send a message out to you
It's time to put out the fire
Get ready for the nozone

Dream and pray, the ozone mustn't burn away
Try to run but you'll never hide, it's global suicide
Why aren't you listening to me
You'd better listen
I've been living here a billon years or more
You're ready to burn me up, so get set for war
My world's been set on fire, like a knife in the back
This is your final warning, prepare for attack

Can't you hear me crying
I'm trying to send a message out to you
It's time to put out the fire
Get ready for the nozone
3. Bats In The Belfry (3:38)
I'm getting sick and tired of wasting all my time
And trying to read between your lines
It's hard to see yourself, when the mirror's cracked
Why don't you try to see the signs

It's time to realise
It's not that hard to see
Just open up your eyes
I've got bats in the belfrey

Why not take all of me, or was this all in vain
I'm crying out "Don't take me down with you"
My pain and all your problems are coming to the boil
So tired of all the hell I've been put through

It's time to realise
It's not that hard to see
Just open up your eyes
I've got bats in the belfrey

Why don't you listen
I'm trying to help you
You don't, don't give a damn
Why can't you hear me
I'm trying to save you
You don't give a, you don't, don't give a damn
Anxiety attacks as confusion rips at the mind
Help me, my head is spinning round and round
Help me, I guess you'll never know untill it hits you in the face
like a bat
I sit here in my room without too much to say
At least I'll live to see another dayn no thanks to you

To late to realise
It wasn't that hard to see
Just open up your eyes
I've got bats in the belfrey
4. Snake In The Grass (4:55)
You were the world to me, I thought that I would always be there
for you
I was too blind to see, I would have clibed the highest mountain
for you
You gave me something to hope for, you made me feel like new
But tonight it's over and we're through, and we're through

I guess you've taken me for granted
You've filled my world full of lies
I want to know, give me some answers
But you can't even look me in the eye
Well I've taken all the shit I will take from you
And I've only just begun to see the light

You're just a big disgrace
Turn around, get out of my face
You've got no fuckin' class
Reptile, you're a snake in the grass

All the times we had together
Were they real or just a fantasy
So tell me why I wasn't good enough for you
Just maybe you're not good enough for me
Well I've taken all the shit I will take from you
And I've only just begun to see the light
You've been running around, having fun with anyone
I don't believe you have the right
Why, tell me why you're crying
You've brought this on yourelf

Lie, tell me why you're lying
It's time to put you on your shelf
Looks like I've taken you for granted
And I've seen right through your disguise

Tomorrow's going to be a better day for me
You can find someone else to victimise
Well I've taken all the shit I will take from you
And I've only just begun to see the light
You've been running around, having fun with anyone
I don't believe you have the right
Why, tell me why you're crying
You've brought this on yourelf

Lie, tell me why you're lying
It's time to put you on your shelf
Well I've taken all the shit I will take from you
And I've only just begun to see the light
You've been running around, having fun with anyone
I don't believe you have the right
5. Phoenix Rising (3:48)
Day by day, watching you disappear
Wishing that you were still here beside me
On my own, swimming against the tide
There's nobody on my side but your memory

Then you'll rise right before my eyes
On wings that fill the sky
Like a pheonix rising
Like a pheonix rising

Wings on fire, tearing into the night
Screaming into the light of another day
Carry me out the hurricane
Into the smoke and flame and we'll fly away

And we'll rise right before their eyes
On wings that fill the sky
Like a pheonix rising
Like a pheonix rising

Higher, higher, hear the thunder roar from above
Fire, fire, fire makes me whole
Into the smoke and flame and we'll fly away

And we'll rise right before their eyes
On wings that fill the sky
Like a pheonix rising
Like a pheonix rising
Wings on fire, tearing in to the night
And we'll fly away
6. Knight Jumps Queen (3:47)
Good evening and welcome to a test of the minds
This match begins as our thoughts begin to grind
I send a pawn towards you, a subtle piece of my attack
Pondering the next move, I guess you'll never know unless you try
it

Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen

You have made selections, a white castle crumbles at your feet
To Counter the men in black, your moves must all be elite
A bishop takes a rook and this cuts him down to size
This is no tailor-made situation
I guess I have some real competition for once

Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen

Hours and hours to a stalemate, this game has come to a close
Could it end without a climax betwwen to exhausted foes
Night-time's falling on the castle, it's bringing in another day
The concentration was impossible, I never had a doubt I wouldn't
win it from you

Knight jumps queen if you know what I mean
Anticipation of the final scene
Knight jumps queen, so get prepared
For this checkmate has been happily declared
As the knight jumps the queen
7. Sounds Good To Me (4:18)
Say goodbye and close your eyes, let's drift away
Like a ship on the ocean, we'll set sail for a better day
Come live in a daydream, this is your wonderland
Let's swim in the deep sea, so jump in and take my hand

Dream away don't wait for the night
'Cause any old time at all sounds good to me
Hello, you can open your eyes, we're almost there
Can you feel all the energy, there's magic everywhere
Come live in a daydream, this is your destiny
Just let the feeling surround you and it will set you free
We've all got problems, don't let them get to you
Amd when your feeling down, there's only one thing to do

Dream away don't wait for the night
'Cause any old time at all sounds good to me
Dream away, everything's alright
I hope it sounds good to you, sounds good to me
Sounds good to me

We've all got problems, don't let them get to you
Amd when your feeling down, there's only one thing to do

Dream away don't wait for the night
'Cause any old time at all sounds good to me
Dream away, everything's alright
I hope it sounds good to you, sounds good to me
Sounds good to me
8. The Edge (2:57)
The edge, I'm walking a fine line
To young to be waiting at stop signs
I'm on fire and I can't cool down
And I'm ready to roll right out of this town
'Cause there's something in me you can't learn in school
They teach it on the street, it's the only rule

It's the edge

The edge, I'm dying in the classroom
Tell me why should I dance to your tune
Keep your plans for my security
Because there's only one thing taking care of me
And it's harder than steel, it cuts like a knife
It's the way I run, it's a way of life

The edge

You can't hold me down forever
What doesn't kill me makes me strong
If you can't take it, you can't make it
Out here on the edge for very long
And it's harder than steel, it cuts like a knife
It's the way I run, it's a way of life

The edge
9. Don't Bother Me (3:24)
I woke up this morning
I couldn't get out of bed
I had a couple of drinks last night
I guess it went to my head
I slept through my wake up call
Forgot to feed the cat
There's only one thing wrong
I don't know where I'm at

Excuse, no use, it doesn't work for me
You've had your chances, don't bother me
Tic toc, just look at the clock, your life is passing by
You've had your chances, don't bother me

I've got to get a move on
It's a quarter to ten
I can't find my keys at all
Forgot my suit again
I get to work, the boss says "late"
This happens everyday
Once more you've lost your job
I don't care anyway

Excuse, no use, it doesn't work for me
You've had your chances, don't bother me
Tic toc, just look at the clock, your life is passing by
You've had your chances, don't bother me

One drink is all you're really asking for
But you want more
Yesterday I lost my job
It doesn't bother me
I'll do what I want and I'll do it again
You just wait and see
Time for a drink and no time to think
With a bottle of rum
Well I'm running low and it's time to go
Out to get me some

Excuse, no use, it doesn't work for me
You've had your chances, don't bother me
Tic toc, just look at the clock, your life is passing by
You've had your chances, don't bother me
10. Brain Dance (4:52)
I dropped out of the rat race
I just needed a break from it all
And now I live in the country
With the birds and the bees and these bright white walls
Let me introduce you to some friends of mine
They're so polite and they dress so fine
Sometimes they take me for a walk in the sun
I get to play in the grass 'till I'm done

Brain dance
Brain dance
This is brain dance
Watch my brain dance

I'd like to call myself an artist
My toe paintings are just the best
But when my feet get tired
I lose the crayon and get some rest
I've got a feeling there's a fish in the floor
I'd better squish it or he'll swim out the door
Sometimes they take me for a walk in the sun
I see my fish and I have to run

Brain dance
Brain dance
This is brain dance
Watch my brain dance

Rubber shoes, a dirty sock
Plastic toes and it's my pet rock
And this song is very silly and it makes no sense at all because
it's weird
Out of the pan and into the fire and back in the pan again
He jumped out of the frying pan, into the fire and he's back again
He jumped, what?, yes he's jumped and he's flying through the air
He jumped out of the frying pan, into the fire and he's back again
Let me introduce you to a friend of mine
She's been here for quite some time
Sometimes we go out for a walk in the sun
To walk with ALICE is always fun

Brain dance
Brain dance
This is brain dance
Watch my brain dance
11. Hell Bent For Leather (Judas Priest cover) (2:54)
Seek him here, seek him on the highway.
Never knowing when he'll appear.
All await, engine's ticking over.
Hear the roar as they sense the fear.

Wheels, glint of steel and a flash of light!
Screams, from a streak of fire as he strikes!

Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
Hell bent, hell bent for leather.

Black as night, faster than a shadow.
Crimson flare from a raging sun.
An exhibition, sheer precision.
Yet no one knows from where he comes.

Fools, self destruct cannot take that crown.
Dreams, crash one by one to the ground.

Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
Hell bent, hell bent for leather.

There's many who tried to prove that they're faster.
But they didn't last and they died as they tried.

There's many who tried to prove that they're faster.
But they didn't last and they died as they tried.

Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
Hell bent, hell bent for leather.
