Rocket Ride Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Sacrifice (8:03)
Too much time to get lost in the maze
Tell me, isn't that strange?
You bleed to get there, you were ready
You were ready, to be a bird in a golden cage

Sweat is breaking on my brow
Where's the freak to ease my pain?
The room is dark and big and empty
Silence drivin' me insane

Night has fallen, demons laughing
Waiting for the light of day
Here's the land of milk and honey
There you got the price to pay

Searching for shelter
Riding the pendulum to paradise
As I'm reaching higher
What a pure desire
Swinging back towards the edge

When I drift away killing sacrifice
Here I go insane
What a price to pay, living sacrifice
I set off to Heaven, and found bedlam

There's a part of me that has not been sold
Save me please, embrace me, hold me
And kiss my bleeding soul

You can see below the creature
Pounding, sitting in my neck
If you'd see inside my head
You surely wouldn't turn your back on me

I'm looking for shelter, riding the pendulum to paradise
As I'm reaching higher, what a pure desire
Swinging back towards the abyss

When I drift away killing sacrifice
Here I go insane
What a price to pay, living sacrifice
I set off to Heaven, and found bedlam

Nothing remains the same, but still I hear those voices
Nothing remains the same, where am I gonna go?
Is it my destination, or just a fake temptation, baby?
I remember home, when demons came and I got swept away
From me

When I drift away killing sacrifice
Here I go insane
What a price to pay, living sacrifice
I set off to Heaven, and found bedlam
2. Rocket Ride (4:49)
I sought salvation but I found insanity
Lost in a mass I returned to profanity

I've been reaching for the sky
But I am stuck with my feet, down in concrete

Don't you run away now, don't you be afraid
Now there is a meaning, whoah oh oh
Don't you run away now, don't you live a lie
There's more to life to show you, take a rocket ride

Suffering my way with divine aspiration
I failed to resist the sweetest temptation

Been stuck to religion 'till I clung to the pie
You never really miss it, until you really try

Tried to jump but I'm down by concrete
The memories surrounding my fate (faith?)

Don't you run away now, don't you be afraid
Now there is a meaning, whoah oh oh
Don't you run away now, don't you live a lie
There's more to life to show you, take a rocket ride

I've tried to reach higher, but my flesh is too weak
I've been searching for answers, I been led to the fire
There must be a reason for us to be down here
I'm drifting, yeah temptation, carried out to the sea
I'm drifting, I'm drifting away, I'm drifting away

I've been reaching for the sky
But I am stuck with my feet, down in concrete

Don't you run away now, don't you be afraid
Now there is a meaning, whoah oh oh
Don't you run away now, don't you live a lie
There's more to life to show you, take a rocket ride
3. Wasted Time (5:48)
Pain is over, no one's to take the blame?
We believed in roses, but then the thorns remained

When I look into the rear view mirror
We create and we destroy
But I've run into a street with a dead end
Walk up that stairway to jump off into the black
Here we go

We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all wasted again?
We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all just wasted time?

Maybe I am different, maybe I'm a fool
I wonder if it's worth it, trying to find another you
And I look into the rear view mirror
Just to see how fucked I look
While I travel on that street with a dead end
Like a moth to the flame
It's gonna suck me into pain
Still we go

We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all wasted again?
We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all just wasted time?

What are we heading for?
What do I dare again?
Once beaten, twice shy
And still we haven't learned

So here I'm lying
Pleasure (something) pain
Solitary loner ("redundancy I guess")
I know that life is just a game
But nobody gets out alive

Shattered and shocked from life
No happy man gets out alive
Need to rough up you will see

We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all wasted again?
We go all the way, do we need the pain?
Waking up in a black tomorrow
I've been there before, was it all just wasted time?
4. Matrix (4:10)
I see your face in a masquerade
I see your made up smile
When the show is over, then what is left behind?
It's in your eyes, it's in your hair
How come they say opposites attract?
When all you feel is a struggle deep inside?

Don't tell no lies, no more disguise
I'm tracing the matrix of my life
The damage is done, you don't belong
Deep down in the matrix

I'm feeling pushed, from left to right
Is this the way it's meant to be?
Is my destiny crawling on my knees?

Now who is right? And who is wrong?
Who is the one that won't belong?
Who is for real? And who's just pretending to be?

Don't tell no lies, no more disguise
I'm tracing the matrix of my life
The damage is done, you don't belong
Deep down in the matrix
No more lies, no more disguise
Into the matrix

No more lies, no disguise
I'm tracing the matrix
No more...

Lies, no more disguise
I'm tracing the matrix of my life
The damage is done, you don't belong
Deep down in the matrix
No more lies, no more disguise
Tracing the matrix of my life
The damage is done, you don't belong
Deep down in the matrix
Into the matrix
5. Return to the Tribe (6:07)
Road lies ahead
And a long road lies behind me
See lights passing by
And I know it's the time of their lives

A million miles, light years I've been traveling
To watch and enjoy this world
That I've seen as galore

Oh amusing over it all
Closing my eyes to remember it all
Embracing the past and the future to come
Kiss that road that leads me to my tribe

I've found my way home
I've returned to where I belong
Back to where I stand from
Back to paradise
Time to return to the tribe

The other side, always close to the edge
Been walking a thin line, always had someone watch my step
A mystery, to make it out alive and say
The battle is over, and I know who's been with me

Now amusing over it all
On top of this world I remember it all
Awaiting the sunrise and sunset (something)
Kiss the way that leads me to my tribe

Back to the tribe
I've found my way home
I've returned to where I belong
Back to where I stand from
Back to paradise
Time to return to the tribe

Back to the tribe
I've found my way home
I've returned to where I belong
Back to where I stand from
Back to paradise
Time to return to the tribe
6. The Asylum (7:39)
Lying in the still of the night
A yearning for shelter
Silence kissing your wounds, soothing your pain
Darkness, and what do they know
'Bout losing direction, clutching a straw
Cherish the hope to make it finally home
Home, home, home, home

You long to be see-through, so nobody can tell
Whenever they make you bleed your pride away

Now you're driven by one track mind, initiating you
Splendid flowers, blossom from the wounds
The strong of the poison, sweetest as the bloom
Don't you try to stand your ground
'Cause you're only coming home

Through the heart of fire
You're home, found the asylum
In a world with a broken dance, on shards of glass
I see fire, ruins and fire, and fire
In world with a broken dance, with shattered dreams

It's burning inside you, it's emotional hell
And you keep on smiling, upon the icy tides
A stream of fire, to sweep the fears away
Seems like forever, too long you've had to wait
Locked in darkness, for wicked harmony
Little angel thrown away, she'll be back another day

Through the heart of fire
You're home, found the asylum
In a world with a broken dance, on shards of glass
I see fire, ruins and fire, and fire
In world with a broken dance, with shattered dreams

Now see the coma children, I see them off the beaten track
Embracing and crying
Come seek humiliation, now let them dance
Liberation cruelty free, that's the one, the kettle's (something)

Boogeyman was sought and found
Boogeyman has found a home

In the heart of fire, he's found the asylum
In world with a broken dance, on shards of glass

Fire, ruins and fire, and fire
In world with a broken dance, with shattered dreams
Heart of fire, you're home, found the asylum
In world with a broken dance, on shards of glass
I see fire, ruins and fire, and fire
In world with a broken dance, with shattered dreams
7. Save Me (3:47)
Waiting for a little sign
Seems like to no avail
Strolling down the pavement aimlessly

She's praying for someone to snatch her bag of memories
How come you call it destiny?
When the cross you bear's your only company

Never seen you, I don't even know you're name
But still I believe

That you are gonna save me
Somehow I got a notion
Just a little affection on this cold and windy road
Save me, from a state of un-emotion
Just a little affection on this windy road

Why is it all so confusing?
Why's growing up hurt so bad?
Seek what we had lost, we get found and go again
I don't know what's gone to me
I won't make any promise I believe

Never seen you, I don't even know you're name
But still I believe

That you are gonna save me,
Somehow I got a notion
Just a little affection on this cold and windy road
Save me, from a state of un-emotion
Just a little affection on this windy road

I don't if I can, I don't know if I should
I don't know what is right, and what's to come if you would
Here I stand in rain, here in stand in the cold
I been locked into get, another shout in my soul, no

I'm afraid of that hole
Save me, save me, got a notion
Just a little affection on this cold and windy road
Save me, save me from un-emotion
Just a little affection on this cold and windy road
Save me, save me
Just a little affection on this windy road

Save me, save me

(That you are gonna save me
Somehow I got a notion
Just a little affection on this cold and windy road
Save me, from a state of un-emotion
Just a little affection on this windy road)

Lonesome road
8. Catch of the Century (4:03)
You do not know, and you don't care
And you may never learn
I made approaches, you gave me teeth
And got my open heart

I'm paid for sassing, that's what you say
Don't get the essential point
What it came down to, was you and good nothing
Here's to the wicked and here's to the odd

You got your chance going down the drain, you're dumping
The catch of the century
You've got your chance, but you're much too vain to take it
The catch of the century

Your bodies waiting, cause all the world is already spoken for
A host of rivals, I'm out for boogeying and I'll be forever more
You spread all around, sniff while I'm high, I'm on the road again
I'm going down with flying colors, before I go down on someone else

You got your chance goin' on my train, you're dumping
The catch of the century
And lady luck's got her ass in pain, you're wasting
The catch of the century
You got your chance goin' on my train, you're dump
The catch of the century

"I tell you, one day you will regret it
I will sell millions of records
I'm gonna have hundreds of women
Seven, seven Ferraris!
A private jet!
A helicopter license!
I'm gonna be the Formula One world champion!
I'm gonna have a big house in Hollywood Hills!
And you will be nothing
Nothing! Nothing! You will be nothing but nothing!
AAAAAHHH! AAAAAHHH! YOU! NOTHING! NOTHING, YOU'RE NOTHING!
HELICOPTER!"

"Tobi, so ist es gut?"

"Gut?"
9. Out of Vogue (4:36)
You ride the spinning wheel that's gotten faster
Outside they saw the passing centuries

Round and round, merry-go-round, round and round you go
Scream and shout, laugh aloud

So out of vogue
To lead a way outside the catalogue
You're in vogue - you don't understand
So out of vogue
To contradict the trend, the mistress of the world
How does it feel in your cage?
Trapped in vogue

So you don't miss a thing in your carousel
You feel so proud behind the steering wheel
Don't mind your soul has set you from outside
When you feel happy as you kneel

Lady Dark, crack the whip - 300 pounds of lust
What you get, what you need

So out of vogue
How do you do inside the catalogue?
You're in vogue - you don't miss a thing
So out of vogue
To contradict your trends, the mistress of the world
How does it feel in your cage?
10. Superheroes (3:20)
City lights are calling
Slowly coming back to life
Speeding in the fast lane
Mama let us waste no time

Devil in the doorway
Selling any kind of hell
We're just coming out to play the game

[Refrain]
We never cry for love
We're superheroes
We are back where we belong
We never cry for pain
We're superheroes
Man can stand where he belong

Way to long I've tried to be
What I could never be
For too long you've rolled the dice
But you can't control me

I ain't talking 'bout romance
You may fit, a love may chance
Anyway it's a just game we play

[Refrain]
We never cry for love
We're superheroes
We are back where we belong
We never cry for pain
We're superheroes
Man can stand where he belong

We never cry for love
Man can stand where he belong
11. Trinidad (3:29)
"Let me tell you a story about an ugly woman I know..."
"Hello Girls!"
"Hello Tobi you hot little machine!!!"

I'm a sight for sore eyes
Oh, if your eyes would only see
I've been born on tiptoe
Still you looked
like a lighthouse next to me

You pet named me Napoleon
I was proud
'til I got the reason why
Never aimed for confrontation
You've been sleeping
when I kissed your ass goodbye

Oh, while you read this letter
I'd just gone to eat out
By the way:

My what a sunshine in Trinidad
Hope you're okay light years away
My what a heat wave in Trinidad
Hope you don't mind if I stay

Pitcher goes too often to the well
And now the Pitcher's gone insane
(Ratatatataa) - gotta run away
boiling over - getting hell
And found the answer on a plane

Oh, I've been pissing off
Before you might
could have pissed me off
I hope you're fine, yeah

My what a sunshine in Trinidad
Mind if you stay? I do okay!
My what a heat wave in Trinidad
Sunburned a night flight away

"Honey you're looking good so far away from me
The weather is great, the beach is great, the food is great
Everything is great and you're so far away, I love you honey
Greetings from Trinidad, hey!"

My what a sunshine in Trinidad
Mind if you stay? I do okay!
My what a heat wave in Trinidad
Sunburned a night flight away

"Back and home in Germany I was a famous porn star, hahaha"
12. Fucking with Fire (Hair Force One) (4:22)
I saw her coming in high-heels, living like a queen
A little sweet angel, but deep underneath a mean machine
You're lying and wait to make me your fool, you want me to bite
I'm gonna take the bait and the hunter for afters, take you for a ride

And I don't wanna play no games 'cause I'm a bad, bad boy all around
Let me be your Titanic, for you know what's going on - I'll make her down

Fucking with fire - I'm coming to rock
Got my rocket on fire and I take what I want
Fucking with fire - loaded and cocked
You never miss it 'til you've been gone with the hairforce one

I don't make no mistakes (something, you're right, fucking guy!) on a hell of a time
I'm a real go-getter, that's no doubt, down the line
I know what you want and I know what you need, your secret desire
Got the gloves of a man - the hands of a beast, and the pants on fire

And I don't wanna play no games 'cause I'm a nasty, bad boy all around, 'round
Let me be your Titanic, for you know what's going on - I'm going down. I'm...

...Fucking with fire - I'm coming to rock
Got my rocket on fire and I take what I want
Fucking with fire - loaded and cocked
You never miss it 'til you've been gone with the hairforce one

Honey you know what?
You know what I am...

...Fucking with fire - I'm coming to rock
Got my rocket on fire and I take what I want
Fucking with fire - loaded and cocked
You never miss it 'til you've been down with the hairforce one
