1. Victims of the Future (6:13)
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter/Ian Paice/Neil Murray)

Searching each day for the answers,
watching our hopes disappear.
Set on a course for disaster,
living our lives in fear.
Our leaders leave us in confusion.
For them there's only one solution.

Caught in the fight for survival,
trapped with our backs to the wall.
Are we just lambs to the slaughter?
Who wait for the axe to fall.
Our world is headed for destruction.
Our fate is in the hands of fools.

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.

Into the verbal arena,
armed with the lies that they tell.
They're fighting for world domination,
backed by the weapons of hell.
Is there no end to all this madness?
Is there no hope for us at all?

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.
Yeah.

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.

Shadows of the past,
victims of the future.
How long will it last,
victims of the future.

Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Yeah.
2. Teenage Idol (4:07)
(Gary Moore)

He never did much good when he went to school.
Too many teachers, there were too many rules.
A dirty faced kid, he was never outta trouble.
His Mom and Poppa told him better get out on the double.
But when he heard that music on the radio,
he knew one day he was gonna be a teenage idol.

He quit his job in the factory.
He was tired of makin' peanuts, so he jumped out of the tree.
He couldn't wait another day to get out of that place.
He punched the clock, and he broke its face.
But when he heard that guitar on the radio,
he knew one day he was gonna be a teenage idol.
Teenage idol.

He's a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.

He dumped his chick and he sold his car.
He bought himself a hot guitar.
He joined a band and they cut some tracks.
He hit the road and he's never looked back. Oh, no.
And now they're playing all his records on the radio.
And everybody knows, he's gonna be a teenage idol.

He's a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.
He's just a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
He's a teenage idol, he's way out of control.

And now they're playing all his records on the radio.
Everybody knows that he's gonna be a teenage idol.
Teenage idol.

He's a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
He's just a teenage idol, he's way out of control.
He's a teenage idol, he knows how to rock and roll.
A teenage idol, he's way out of control.

We're talking about a teenage idol.
You know what I mean.
He might be in your town next week,
so just look out.
Get those tickets while they're hot.
3. Shapes of Things to Come (4:14)
(Samwell-Smith/Relf/McCarty)

Shapes of things before my eyes,
just teach me to dispise.
Will time make man more wise?

Here, within my lonely frame.
My eyes just hurt my brain.
But will it seem the same?

Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, maybe a soldier?
Come tomorrow, will I be bolder than today?

Now, the trees are almost green.
But will they still be seen,
when time and tide have been?

Soon, I hope that I will find
thoughts deep within my mind,
that won't disgrace my kind.

Come tomorrow, will I be older?
Come tomorrow, maybe a soldier?
Come tomorrow, will I be bolder than today?

Shapes of things before my eyes,
just teach me to dispise.
Will time make man more wise?
4. Empty Rooms (6:36)
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter)

Lonliness is your only friend.
A broken heart that just won't mend
is the price you pay.

It's hard to take when love grows old.
The days are long and the nights turn cold
when it fades away.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

You see her face in every crowd.
You hear her voice, but you're still proud,
so you turn away.

You tell yourself that you'll be strong.
But your heart tells you,
this time you're wrong.

You hope that she will change her mind,
but the days drift on and on.
You'll never know the reason why she's gone.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.

Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.
Empty rooms,
where we learn to live without love.

All alone in an empty room.
Lonliness is your only friend.
Oh, she's gone and you're at the end.
5. Murder in the Skies (7:17)
(Gary Moore/Neil Carter)

Time was running out for all on board,
soaring up through the shadows of night.
High above the clouds the engines roared,
this would be their final flight.

The russians have shot down a plane on its way to Korea.
Two hundred and sixtynine innocent victims have died.

Murder in the skies, came without a warning.
Murder in the skies, black September morning.
Murder in the skies.

Time was running out for everyone,
flying over the Sea of Japan.
None would live to see the rising sun,
death was following close at hand.

The russians have shot down a plane on its way to Korea.
Two hundred and sixtynine innocent victims have died.

Murder in the skies, came without a warning.
Murder in the skies, black September morning.
Murder in the skies, came without a warning.
Murder in the skies, black September morning.

Murder in the skies, came without a warning.
Murder in the skies, black September morning.
Murder in the skies, came without a warning.
Murder in the skies, black September morning.

Murder in the skies.
Murder in the skies.
Murder in the skies.
Murder, Murder in the skies.
Murder in the skies.
6. All I Want (4:17)
(Gary Moore)

I don't know what is wrong with you.
Baby, baby, whatcha tryin' to do to me?
Lovin' you has got me so confused,
I'm sick and tired of always bein' abused this way.

All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
every day and every night.
All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
it's gonna make me feel allright.
Yeah.

I don't know what's on your mind.
Baby, baby, why're you so unkind to me?
Lovin' you is driving me insane.
Baby, baby, I'm in so much pain and misery.

All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
every day and every night.
All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
it's gonna make me feel allright.

I just want some of your lovin'.
Some of your love.

All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
every day and every night.
All I want from you is your sweet lovin',
it's gonna make me feel allright.
Yeah.

I say just give me some of your lovin'.
Just give me some of your lovin'.
Some of your love.
7. Hold on to Love (4:27)
(Gary Moore)

Look at you, a fool in love.
A man too blind to see.
You never ask yourself why they all leave you.
You try to play so many games.
You give yourself away.
And then you wonder why no one believes you.

You've got to realise
that this is goin' nowhere.
You've got to understand
that there's so much you can share.

You know you've got to
hold on to love
if you wanna learn to forget your sorrow.
You've got to
hold on to love
like there's no tomorrow.

Look at you, a fool in love.
A man too blind to see.
You never ask yourself why they all hurt you.
You try to hide behind your lies.
You give yourself away.
And then you wonder why they all desert you.

You know you've got to
hold on to love
if you wanna learn to forget your sorrow.
You've got to
hold on to love
like there's no tomorrow.

You know you've got to
hold on to love
if you've got to beg, steal or borrow.
You've got to
hold on to love
like there's no tomorrow.

You've got to realise
that this is goin' nowhere.
You've got to understand
that there's so much you can share.

You know you've got to
hold on to love
if you wanna learn to forget your sorrow.
You've got to
hold on to love
like there's no tomorrow.

You better learn to
hold on to love
if you've got to beg, steal or borrow.
You've got to
hold on to love
like there's no tomorrow.

You know you've got to
hold on, hold on, hold on,
keep holdin' on.
Hold on to love like there's no tomorrow.

There'll be a prize to pay,
if your love runs away.
Hold on, hold on,
hold on to love.
8. The Law of the Jungle (6:15)
(Gary Moore)

We step into a world of danger.
Each night we answer neon's call.
We steer away from passing strangers,
jumping at shadows on the wall.

The law of the jungle
is so hard to break.
When death walks behind you,
with each step you take.

Who knows what's waiting in the darkness?
Only the neon sees it all.
Who knows what lurks beyond the shadows?
The strong survive, the weak must fall.

The law of the jungle
is so hard to break.
When death walks behind you,
with each step you take.

The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
It's kill or be killed.

The law of the jungle
is so hard to break.
When death walks behind you,
with each step you take.

The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
It's kill or be killed.

The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.
It's you or it's me.

The law of the jungle.
The law of the jungle.

The law of the jungle.
