Barbed Wire Soul Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Game Over (4:04)
Christ knows it is easy
So goddamn easy
So come on and give me your best shot
Please criticise me
Come analyse me
Because i can take it all
Let me tell you now

I know that the game is over for me
But i am just too stuck in my ways
I suppose that the game is over today
And i am not going quietly

You know it is easy
It is so plain to see
So come on and give me your best shot
Talk comes so cheap
And i am not going to go quietly
And i can swallow it all
Let me tell you how

The game is over now
2. Smile (3:39)
Well you can take that look off your face
Because i just cannot take it no more
Take that look right of your face
Your stupid face that i abhor
That i abhor

Well tell me to what do you amount
Well come hear me shout

Well do not make me laugh
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Do not make me

Laugh on the other side of my face
With a little smile of scorn
With misery i have been graced
Bursting until my lungs are sore
Come hear me roar

And what have i achieved
Come hear me sing

Do not make me laugh
3. Sound of Silence (3:46)
Well i think i have said it all before
And i think it sounds like a bore
And i think i have said this somewhere else before
And i do not want to talk anymore

Do not want to talk about it
I said i just do not want to talk about it
Well it is tough i have had enough
I do not want to talk about it
Yeah

And i think i have heard it all before
And i do not want to talk anymore

I am tired now
4. Rock 'n' Roll Circus (4:14)
Yeah little rock and roller
Tell me how does this feel
Things are never what what they seem
And nothing is ever real
Yeah little rock and roller
I am telling you things never last
One foot in the present
Just a draught from the past

Little rock and roller yeah

All aboard come enjoy the ride
As the rock and roll circus comes around one more time

Hey little rock and roller
There is some good times up for grabs
It is such a pity
Your are stuck in anothers past
Hey little rock and roll
Play another number
Go bargain your soul
Living out the lie
Acting out this rotten roll
5. New Song (3:55)
I have got no reason
I have got no reason at all
Getting older but not getting any wiser
And i never even heard the last call
I have got no reason
No reason have i got
Seems like i am stuck in my old ways
Bitter jaded and vitriolic
Yeah i have got the lot

Got no reason
I have got no reason at all
Got no reason
At all
At all
At all
No reason at all

I got a new song to sing now
Wishing to christ that i would never get old
Whilst to the sands of time my mind and body were being sold
Yeah i have got a new song to sing now
Got no time for getting the blues
After all it could be worse
I could be like you

Well i got no reason
Seems like i lost the plot
Well i am putting it all on the line now
Out on a limb on one final shot
6. Give Up the Ghost (3:08)
So you do not know what you have got until it is gone
Cannot change my tune but i sure can change the song
And you know the show must go on
How long
Yeah how long
Tell me how long
You do not know what you have got until it is gone
Cannot change my tune but i sure can change the song
And you know the show must go on
How long
Yeah how long
You will never know just what you had
I tell myself that there is never any going back
There is no time for feeling so sad
Let go
Just let go
Just let it go

Well kiss this goodbye
Just let go
Let it go
Giving up the

Well easy come and easy go
Reaping the seeds that someone else has sown
Nothing is sacred and i should know
I know
Yeah i know
You will never know just what you had
I tell myself that there is never any going back
There is no time for feeling so sad
Let go
Let it go
Just let it go

Giving up the ghost
7. Revolution of the Heart (4:02)
Look into these eyes
And tell me who do you recognise
Look into these eyes
And tell me do you really want to be free
Do you want to know the truth
Then tell me how to get it through to you
Come on and tell me can you hear me
Can you hear me calling

Calling for a revolution today
A revolution of the heart
Calling for a revolution of the heart

Look into these eyes
And tell me when are you going to realise
Look into these eyes
And tell me do you really want to believe
Do you want to know the truth
Then tell me how to get it through to you
Come on and tell me can you hear me
Can you hear me calling

Look into these eyes
And tell me do you really feel alive
Look into these eyes
And tell me do you really want to free
Do you want to know the truth
Then tell me how to get it through to you
Come on and tell me can you hear me
Can you hear me calling
8. Waste of Space (3:49)
You would like to think you know it all
You would like to think you have got it sussed
Well you are a real hopeless fool
Too much in love with lady luck
Well take a look at yourself
When are you going to realise
Well get out of my sight
Because it is you i despise

Well that is right
Yeah so long
You are going to have to face it
That you are nothing but a waste of
That is right
Yeah so long
You are going to have to face it
That you are nothing but a waste of space
You are such a waste

Nothing more than a waste of space

You are always out to lunch
Always too blind to see
You are just a tourist in another persons reality
Well take a look at yourself
Tell me can you see the signs
A real fool with no hope
I think you know
9. Deep Wound (3:10)
10. Better the Devil (4:41)
I have made my bed and now it is time to lie down
Dark clown eternal with a permanent wry frown
Still holding out with pessimistic hope
Better the devil you know than the one that you do not
Better the devil you know than the one that you do not

I should have known
I should have known
Better the devil you know than the one that you do not
I know i know
I should have known
I should have known
Better the devil you know than the one that you do not

Hold your loved ones close and your enemies closer
I guess they never ever come any colder
Lash it out give them enough rope
Better the devil you know than the one that you do not
11. Instrumental (5:00)
I have had the same old dream always lately
And i do not want to dream no more
I have had the same recurring dreams lately
And what i have dreamt i am not quite sure
I am not quite sure

Recurring dreams

All that we see
All that we see or seem
Is just a dream
Just a dream within a dream

I have had the same old dream always lately
Day in day out day after day
I had the same old dream again today
And i do not want to dream again
Dream again
