Matters of Survival Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Ecstasy
You drag your nails across my back
I can feel your teeth upon my neck
I am in ecstasy

You blow my mind - heat me up
Take my spirit to the top - so high
I am in ecstasy

We fly...till we die
We fly...till we die

More than more is not enough
I need your mind expanding stuff
To fly...to fly

All my strength - down the drain
No escape - I tried in vain
I am in ecstasy

We fly...till we die
We fly...till we die

In your hand - helplessly
Sweat and blood - I cannot flee
On my skin - sweetest pain
A million needles like burning rain

We fly...till we die
We fly...till we die
2. Idolator
For our boredom we got a golden TV
For our souls we got a holy cross

And I will be your -
Be your holy cross
And I will be there
When you feel the loss

Alright
Idolators serve and idols rule
Alright
That's the reason why I'm here for you

For our wars we got
Mighty weapons
For what's left we got
A million graves

And I will be your
Final resting place
Cause I will be there
When your soul is saved

Alright
Idolators serve and idols rule
Alright
That's the reason why I'm here for you

Never before in the history of man
Have so few ruled, so many,
With man, guns and bombs
So let them see the writing on the wall

Alright
Idolators serve and idols rule
Alright
That's the reason why I'm here for you
3. C'est la vie
An old man sat in the dark alley
Holding out his trembling hand
His dark eyes looked through a blanket
Wrapped in junk - out in the cold

Late at night we passed that alley
On our way down to the zoo
Life goes on without pity
On the streets of New York city

Is there a healing for a world almost dead?
Is there a healing for a world ravin' mad?

C'est la vie

Someone knocked somebody out
Drew a gun to take a life
In that game - a vicious circle
Losers die - winners survive

C'est la vie

Is there a healing for a world almost dead?
Is there a healing for a world ravin' mad?

C'est la vie
C'est la vie
4. On my own
Standing alone in flowered field
The silence around like a quiet shield
Colourful blossoms
With their pleasant smell
Carry my dreams to a wishing-well

This is the place where I wanna be
Where heavenly peace is covering me
A deep golden sky so far I can see
Time gets lost in eternity

On my own
Discovering the strength
I have never known
On my own
Aware of a world I've never known

I couldn't live in your "perfect" world
Locked in a cage like a captured bird
Drifted apart from the scheme of things
I felt like a bird with broken wings
...broken wings

On my own
Discovering the strength
I have never known
On my own
Aware of a world I've never known

I knew I'd loose you if I'd go and find
A world of my own to open up my mind
Now I believe in what I already knew
The wind it tells me I belong to you

On my own
Discovering the strength
I've never known
On my own
Here I've realised that I belong to you
On my own
Aware of a world I have never known
On my own
Now I know I belong to you
5. Just a story
I - I saw her in the news
As someone robbed a bank today
He took a girl to getaway

I saw them drive off in a car
Hunted by the press
Looking for their own success

Why did no one help her?

Just a story
For the prime time news
A minute's attention
For a little girl's life

Just a story of a brave princess
Lived through hell
To see heaven I guess

I saw somebody from the press
Had the guy put the gun
Back on her head - just for fun

Flash - flashlights
Reflecting in her eyes
I saw her tears - I saw the gun
I saw her fear like everyone
Why did no one help her?

Just a story
For the prime time news
A minute's attention
For a little girl's life

Just a story of a brave princess
Lived through hell
To see heaven I guess

I saw the bullet on her head
A second later - she was dead
Why didn't anybody help her?

Just a story
For the prime time news
Just a minute's attention
For a little girl's life
6. All my life
I was born with a destiny
Born with guilt - shame on me
Can you judge me by my face
And not the history of my race

All my life I've lived and I see
All the eyes that watch over me
All my life - and I understand
That I'll always belong to this land

Why justify what I don't understand?
Just accidently born in this land
I can't escape the hand of the past
This legacy will always last

All my life I felt the same way
All the ears that hear what I say
And I hope that they understand
I'll always belong to this land

All my life I've lived and I see
All the eyes that watch over me
And I hope that they understand
That I'll always belong to this land
7. Freedom comes
Brothers killing brothers
In our neighbourhood
All we do is stare

Blood runs out of
The television screen
The blame is ours to share

When freedom comes
For everyone
Out of the blue
A world as new
When freedom comes
For everyone
A new life has begun

Thought it was god given
That life in peace and wealth
Freedom was for everyone

Livin' in a small world
Isolated from the truth
Waitin' for the sun

When freedom comes
For everyone
Out of the blue
A world as new
When freedom comes
For everyone
A new life has begun
8. Another day
Cold white frost melts on the green grass
As the sun begins to shine
As I wake up I was shure
That the world is gonna be mine

The first bird starts to sing
At the crack of dawn
The world is telling me
A new day is born

I feel the wind embracin' me
I'm thankful that I get to see

Another day - to live and say
I'm still alive - I've still survived
Another day - to find a way
For me to say
I still got you on my mind

Golden colours everywhere
The mornin' of my day
Words I said - things I've done
Are lost in yesterday

Like the sun find it's way
Through the night
You always fill my life with your light

Another day - to live and say
I'm still alive - I've still survived
Another day - to find my way
For me to say
I still got you on my mind

I feel the wind embracin' me
I'm thankful that I get to see

Another day - to live and say
I'm still alive - I've still survived
Another day - to find a way
For me to say
I still got you on my mind
9. Fan the flames
Fear of war
Fear of death
Fear of strangers in our path
There's so much fear

Fear of what
The preachers says
Fear the holy cross
Burnin' in our heads

In a world so cold
Our hearts were sold

Yeah, they fan the flames of fear
Dealing with our dread, my dear
Yes I know
All that makes the world go round

They fan the flames of fear
Dealing with our dread, my dear
Yes I know
That all makes the world go round

Spend our money on defence
Paid to all the governments
So much fear

We built the walls so high
All the razor wire
Cutting through the sky

In a world so cold
Our hearts were sold

Yeah, they fan the flames of fear
Dealing with our dread, my dear
Yes I know
All that makes the world go round

Oh, they fan the flames of fear
Dealing with our dread, my dear
Yes I know
All that makes the world go round
All that makes the world go round

They have the biggest banks,
The biggest walls,
Bullets and bombs for the biggest guns
Oh, they fan the flames of fear
Dealing with our dread, my dear
10. Watch out
Cold rain above
Ice on the floor
No more love
I even the score
I broke the chains
Of what you call life

You life in a box
I'm standing outside
You life in the dark
But I found the light
I've got no prison
Like you and your type

Watch out
Watch out - I'm the enemy
Watch out
Watch out for a man like me

Watch out - I'm the enemy
Get off my liberty
Watch out - all I wanna be
Footloose and fancy free

I need to loose everything
Finding the truth
Make me a real king
A new horizon, growin' up before my eyes

Watch out - I'm the enemy
Get off - get off my liberty
Watch out - what I wanna be
Footloose and fancy free

Watch out
Watch out - I'm the enemy
Watch out
Watch out - I'm the enemy
11. Hide away
Like a black bird in the night
The shadows walk on ice
I will float down silently
Like a soul in flight

Bringing you my gift tonight
Put in words of love
Kisses like the coldest night
Come from high above

I was exiled to my dyin'
Captured by a spell
Mourning keeps my spirit flyin'
Out of my cold cell

'Cross the field of separation
To the house of pain
Slippin' through the bedroom window
Next to you again

So now you know - you can't hide away
I come and go - there's no hide away
So now you know - you can't hide away
I come and go - there's no hide away
I come and go

When the twilight promises
A new day to begin
You'll find my place beside you
Is cold again

You may feel an other's touch
But in your soul and heart
I'll keep stayin' for all time
As long as we're apart

So now you Know - you can't hide away
I come and go - there's no hide away
So now you know - you can't hide away
I come and go - there's no hide away
I come and go
12. Back in my bones
I saw the light
A great fire ball
As if the sun fell down on me

With every inch of my body I know
I'm on the point of no return

It wasn't my time to go forever
I held my soul back in my own
The beat of my heart
Rising blood pressure
Life was back in my bones

I feel it back in my bones
I feel it back in my bones

Was unconscious
Fell in a trance
Started slipping away
I had to fight for every breath
I knew I wanted to stay

It wasn't my time to go forever
I held my soul back in my own
The beat of my heart
Rising blood pressure
Life was back in my bones

I feel it back in my bones
I feel it back
I feel it back in my bones
