Submitted by level
1. Chrome Dome (6:52)
Sweet lips often spoke to me
Do you know how people fly ?
From that day forth something changed
Don't ask me how it was arranged
My family prayed for heaven's sake
Too late, drowning in a lake
At the edge of madness you can meet me there


Our house stands open for everyone, all night all day
Chrome dome is what they call it
You can get in but never get away, until it's over for you


Things seem so far and lost
Nothing holds me from my glory
They said I'd never understand
The only thing that keeps me warm
My leather jacket in my closet
I don't need it anymore


Our house stands open for everyone, all night all day
Chrome dome is what they call it
You can get in but never get away, until it's over for you


Please understand, don't wanna lead a vegetable life
Let me go, I'm the man with human wings
You'll see, one day I'll fly, and when I do I'll kiss the sky
You'll see, one day I'll die, and when I do
and when I die, and when I go
I wanna be cremated
So my soul can breathe the air, can stop living in despair


Faces I vaguely recognize
Complete strangers observe me
Now their doctors enter my privacy
They grab my arm and push me down
I keep on trying, things can't go wrong now
I keep on trying, sweet sweet dreams


Through the windowpane
I watch the birds play
I'd like to join them but my wings are weak
Living in a mad world


Our house stands open for everyone, all night all day
Chrome dome is what they call it
You can get in but never get away, until it's over for you
2. Repetition (4:02)
Earth's candle slowly kindles
Has no time to slumber
spins around, under sun control
One day nature will show of what it's capable
The long distance boomerang is thrown away
Who cares in what our children play ?


Burn, burn, we should have known
Learn, Learned to control


One, Two, Three, Four, Turn in circles


Repetition : Why don't we realize ?
Repetition : We live, They die
Repetition : Regenerate the chain
Repetition : And I wonder where we go ?


One, One seventy-five, Two
Do you eat of my hand ?


Repetition : Why don't we realize ?
Repetition : We live, They die
Repetition : Regenerate the chain
Repetition : And I wonder where we go ?


Are you ready
Are you ready to leave
God's ready
I'm ready to leave
to leave the sphere
to leave the sphere
3. Stigmatized for Life (6:03)
Spiders weaving in my brain, get out
Somebody take these webs away, right now


Paradise shines so bright for those living in the dark
Appearances are deceptive, skinpure, but inside it rots


Parental confidence makes it so real
Hate made by hate, annihilation, communicate
You could not communicate as a normal human being
Your attitude proves you're hanging on a string


Paradise shines so bright for those living in the dark
Appearances are deceptive, skinpure, but inside it rots


Spider webs, stigmatized for life
I saw regret and I saw it on your face
and I saw regret, but it was too late


Spider webs, stigmatized for life
I saw regret and I saw it on your face
And I saw regret, but it was too late


Pictures recall, his parish life to me
Pictures recall life, parish mind's decree
Brains to remind, nevermind from where that will be
Brains to remind and some things stay and grow. Yeah...


And when you call my name
Don't wanna hear, pretend I'm dead or somewhere else
And I want to run but
I'm not ready to walk
To walk
Don't do this to me
4. America (5:17)
I was born to conquer
Pushed by the wind and sea
Permission by the kingdom of Spain
Opened soiled doorways to my liberty
And as we sailed we roamed
We were lost and desperate
Until a loud scream from the crow's nest gave us hope


Burst of joy, reconnaissance
Discovery of an unknown land: America


And I made the first steps
The beginning of a newborn world
I represent the catholic church
Those who preach: "You will not hurt"
And the holy book in one hand
In the other a sword
We have to teach those savages a lesson
Remission of sins


Let's go too, heresy
Straight on to the promised land: America


We came to stay, 1492, was the year it all began
Kill, rape, yes, he wanted 'em all killed and raped.
Barbarian acts to show who's
In command and makes the rules
Irresistable slaughter and indulge in dissipation
And they kept coming with slaves aboard
And he didn't give a damn about them
A hero was born


Solemn is his name within
Solemn in pose
History books offend me
They don't tell


My name is Columbus
I need your scalps
Finally growling and shaking
Get it out, bleed scream
Bleed for me
Scream bleed
Scream for me
Root 'em out, weed 'em out
Eradicate 'em from my land
5. Play a Little (4:12)
Objection of the rules, God is so selective
Who says it's time to take, who decides when it's time to give
One thing's straight for me
Don't judge a case without knowing the game
Take a stand for yourself
Don't start fighting for another one's health


Suffer with, Suffer within
Suffer with, Pick on it
Information broadcast
The only matter is, to deal with
Suffer with, Do you admit
Sensational involvement
Actually it's none of your business
And when you think
Don't think too much
And about all your meaning I don't even care
Just play, play a little song for me
Play a little song for me


Reflection about facts is not bad when you trace a line
Experiments sound cruel
Decisions rest on the family will


Suffer with, Suffer within
Suffer with, Pick on it
Information broadcast
The only matter is, to deal with
Suffer with, Do you admit
Sensational involvement
Actually it's none of your business
And when you think
Don't think too much
And about all your meaning I don't even care
Just play, play a little song for me


I need affection and body warmth
Growing artificially
Fed by, fed by machines


Desorientated, driven off course
Which way is positive
Why can't they let me go


Suffer with, just play another song for
Suffer within, for whom ? For me !
6. Gold (4:07)
The very first time that I saw you
Caressed my mind, attracted my view
It happened in the attic of a friend party
I stood on the side of the uninitiated
All the others say you really make it
I passed the edge and got myself loaded with gold
turns me so cold


Rays of gold shine through the rivers of my blood
I touch your skin and you get me fixed up


I'm the tear-away of the neighbourhood, I steal, I infest
I'm hunting for your beauty that separates you from the rest
I admit my addiction, in spite of a code
The season is often and I need to score
I'm after spring tide like a fish on the shore
I crack for the needle that puts me in the mood
With gold
Makes me so cold inside


Rays of gold shine through the rivers of my blood
I touch your skin and you get me fixed up


Panoramic sight sitting in a chair
On top of a mountain making love with the air
Big white whales pass me by
Give me some time to consider


Don't leave 'cos I feel so good
Food for graves, that's for sure
Don't leave I start leaving cold
You got another thing coming


I crawl on my knees searching for your smell
I want you on top of me, you treat me so well
Got no time to waste and loads of things to taste
OVER-DOSE
7. Testimony (4:10)
Squeeze'em, Testimony, Squeeze


Three men came masked in black
Activated a negative feedback
They didn't come to do some shopping
Everything was there except the cameras turning
Then multiple shots made holes in bodies
Panic in the hearts of those who were still alive
Piece by piece they were dead
Caused by a cut-off riotgun in their heads


Squeeze'em, Testimony, Squeeze


Seek for goals ? Don't ask me why
It ain't money, so fuck their alibi
National security backed them up
It's a matter of confidence, what's a bad cop
Do you understand just what it means
To put your lives in the hands of a double-crossed team
We have the right to remain silent
And what do we get ?
Disorder and violence !


Power is all you need to attack a strong backbone
Power is all you need to attack a strong backbone
Power is all you need to attack a strong backbone
And if you're in the backbone, change your heart into a big red stone


17 november '83, they became Belgium's
Public enemy number one, and they shot
My son, my only one, that's why I know !?!
I remember that day as if it was yesterday
They drove a Golf, a Volkswagen Golf
That had been stolen in Brussels
And beaten up like a jackal wolf


I can still hear the words that fucking bastards shouted
NO ONE LEAVES HERE


Squeeze'em, Testimony, Squeeze


Justice, a cool word
Our lives have been disturbed
The question is - Who runs the bizz ?
It's corruptive
Rotten to the core
Guilty as charged
But never proven


And the culprit still breathes the air of freedom....
8. Unleash the Dog (3:23)
Explore to explain
Is it the moon or the acid in the rain ?
Like a thousand maniacs running through my bones and brain
Magnetic experience
Maybe a gift of inheritance
It comes and disappears, on a baseless proof


Unleash the dog in you
Unleash the dog in you


Keep the presence of your mind
No panic symptoms, are hard to find
The lock's possessed by you, seek and strike a key
Submit and be guided
Jump in the cartridge, go and ride it
Shoot yourself away as a heart-beating bullet


Unleash the dog in you
Unleash the dog in you


I feel the dog come alive
Do you feel the dog inside ?
I can't help it, it's in me
It pumps me up instinctively
And I feel the urge, the dog's alive tonight
Yes I feel, it's the urge, don't deny it


That's the way it is
I can't deny
It's in the nature of the beast
Animal nature, it's my nature
Nature


Cover the beast in me
And if you look you you'll never see me
I'm the one who's always there
But where ?
9. Big Now (4:29)
Nowadays people have to be confronted
Visually, before they start worrying
About the problems that they refuse to see
As non-existent or overrated newspaper announcements
How many kids aged around 14 know what a condom looks like
Desire scores higher rates than self-protection
I share, this idea must tell, that AIDS has to be taken
Out of the silence in which it sneaks


Look at you. You're big now
Adolescence conflict. You're big now


Spring time, roll the drums
Their new shoes are ready for the first steps
Middle finger in the air
They don't care what's wrong on this big ball
One thing we seem to forget
Were we better in our teens ? NO!


You're big now !


So we fall and stand up for the struggle of life
We learn the law of body communication
We don't know how to react
And tell me, who did ? When they were doing it for the first time


Then be careful where you go
This disease is searching for victims
This brand new pesticide
Is already reigning outrageous
So be, be aware
Play it safe and forsee addiction
You can make love, not war
Don't let it come that far
That AIDS is the one who's outliving


Expectations of a certain life style
Do you agree when decisions are taken for you
Married, children, tradition, prove you're big now
Married, children, tradition, and how do you feel now ?
So tell me, how do you feel


So we fall and stand up for the struggle of life
We learn the law of body communication
We don't know how to react
Who did ? When they were doing it for the first time


Look at you. You're big now
Adolescence conflict. You're big now
10. Last Gasp (4:11)
Whatever is going around ?
See the deal in your mind !
Sweat burning, sweat burning !
You pray ! We have forced the bravest kind !
Sleep well ! We'll all see the paradise !
Sleep well ! Sleep well !!!
Summerbirth ! Summerdeath !
Soare death ! Soare death !!!
Sweet dreams, sleep with me ........
No, No, No, .... !
Suffer inside, you can't heal.
Suffering right ?
This is the end !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the end !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is.................the end...............the end!!
