Answer to the Master Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. The Future is Black (3:42)
in the streets of San Francisco up in Washington, D.C.
there's a movement that's crossing all the lines
while we speed into the future,
the deceiver plants the seeds
and he hides from you the truth behind the lies

the blind will lead the blind
into the valley of sorrow
into the night they will ride

if you look behind the secrets,
in between the lust and greed
you will see the motives coming from the heart
in the shadows of division,
in the cracks of human pride
we only fight for what we cannot hide

the blind will lead the blind
into the valley of sorrow
into the night they will ride

can't you see there's a levy of tears in my eyes
and I don't know if I can hold back
take the trouble and pain that my two eyes have seen
and I know that the future is black

look at you now
look at you now, baby

the future is black
there's no turning back
the future is black

[solo]

see the world spinning out of control
one look in the past the future won't last

can't you see there's a levy of tears in my eyes
and I don't know if I can hold back
take the trouble and pain that my two eyes have seen
and I know that the future is black

look at you now
look at you now, baby

the future is black
there's no turning back
the future is black
2. Fly Away (4:03)
when you're lost inside the dead of night
you can hear the city rage
another one kills and another one dies
and another one shares the pain
see the murder and the rape and a cop on the take
don't you know that it never ends
the sun will rise and the sun will set
but there's madness in the hearts of men
caught in the circle with no end in sight
better turn yourself another page
I'm sick and tired of all the hopeless talk
'cuz nothing's ever gonna' change

think I'll fly away into the setting sun
away from the dark of the night
'cuz the only time that I feel alright is with you

caught in the middle of an endless fight
it comes down to time and chance
got a lot or a little, better enjoy life 'cuz you don't know whether love or hate
is waiting outside your door
so you better pray, there's no delay
from the one that's worth living for

gonna' fly away into the setting sun
away from the dark and the night
'cuz this crazy world lives under the gun
it's only a matter of time
gonna' fly away into the setting sun
away from the dark and the night
'cuz the only time that I feel alright is with you

[solo]

stuck in the middle in the dead of night
you can hear the city rage
better turn yourself another page
generations come, generations go
nothing's ever gonna change
gonna' fly away into the setting sun
where the light was praying for their lives
3. Warrior (4:04)
I could see the city lights
then they turned to black
then I heard a sirens crying sounding out ATTACK!
I could see the rockets glare
shooting in the night
everyone was praying for their lives

am I dreaming
I don't believe it
am I wrong or right
then I heard a voice say in the night

I'm a warrior, take my hand!
let me lead you to the promised land
I'm a warrior, take my hand!
I'm a soldier under his command

then I saw this blinding light
I heard a sonic boom
I could feel the earth shake in the doom

I couldn't see him
but I could feel him
lift me to the sky
I could hear the voice that saved my life

I'm a warrior, take my hand!
let me lead you to the promised land
I'm a warrior, take my hand!
I'm a soldier under his command

[solo]

am I dreaming
I don't believe it
am I wrong or right
then I heard a voice say in the night

I'm a warrior, take my hand!
let me lead you to the promised land
I'm a warrior, take my hand!
I'm a soldier under his command

I'm a warrior
take my hand!
4. I'll Wait (5:09)
they say in time that all my wounds will heal
but they don't know all the pain I feel
so I ask you now, won't you be my guide
and maybe hold me to the end of time

and if I look into your eyes
what will I see
will it be the answer the the mystery

I'll wait for you tonight
I'll wait with open arms
and if it takes forever
to make it right
I'll wait to 'til the end of time
I'll wait for you

a painted picture says a thousand words
I see the colors, but I never learn
I ask you this, have I gone too far
or am I reaching for a shooting star

and if I look into your eyes
what will I see
will it be the answer to the mystery

I'll wait for you tonight
I'll wait with open arms
and if it takes forever
to make it right
I'll wait to 'til the end of time
I'll wait for you

[solo]

I'll wait for you tonight
I'll wait with open arms
and if it takes forever
to make it right
I'll wait to 'til the end of time

I'll wait for you tonight
I'll wait with open arms
and if it takes forever
to make it right
I'll wait to 'til the end of time
I'll wait for you
5. Hold The Line (4:01)
I see you standing in your garden full of stone
wrapped around your heart so you will never be alone
can't you see I want to give you all you need
don't you know by now
there's no future in the past when life goes by so fast-

just hold the line (hold the line)
life's a journey til the end of time (hold the line)
and soon the sun will rise

your sanctuary is hanging from a chain
wrapped around your neck
, but it won't take away the pain
seems to me you don't know what to believe
you should know by now
when the sands of wasted time leave you high and dry-

just hold the line (hold the line)
life's a journey til the end of time (hold the line)
and soon the sun will rise
the end of time (hold the line)
soon the sun will shine just hold the line (hold the line)
life's a journey til
the end of time (hold the line)
soon the sun will shine just hold the line (hold the line)
you've got to hold on
hold on, hold the line
6. Something's Wrong With the World Today (3:44)
the beggar on the street, it's enough to make you weep
he wants something he can shoot through his veins
tearing up the place when the heart begins to race
and the needle fills the great escape
selling neverland, build your house upon the sand
with your feet planted deep in the grave
wasting precious time, trying to kill his empty mind
and his spirit's dying on the way

your life is just a mist before the late autumn breeze
there's got to be a reason for the air we breathe

where's the wrong with the share
where's the hope, we need to care
where's the faith in our society

something's wrong with the world today
something's wrong with the world today

shooting in the park, raping in the dark
child abuse going on and on
stealing everywhere and no one seems to care
fornication running all around

trying to find a reason for the things that we do
no one's got a minute when there's nothing to prove

trying to find a reason for the things that we do
no one's got a minute when there's nothing to prove

where's the love we need to share
where's the hope, we need to care
where's the faith in our society
find the justice and the law
where's the peace, where has it gone
who's the jury of our sanity

something's wrong with the world today
something's wrong with the world today

[solo]

something's wrong with the world today
something's wrong with the world today
7. Answer to the Master (3:25)
you keep on running, been lonely for too long
out on the boulevard, the hammer's coming down
you feel the pressure, the fire in the storm
you need another way, a shelter from the war

let me take you past the fears inside your mind
let me take you to the mansion in the sky

answer to the master, gonna' bring you to your knees
breakaway the chains, he will give you rest
answer to the master, when we reach our destiny
every knee shall bow, every toungue confess

do you remember the power of the flame
your mama told you that love will never end
you used to tell me there's freedom in the sky
you're staying down too long, it's time for you to fly

let me take you past the limits of your mind
let me take you to the mansion in the sky

answer to the master, gonna bring you to your knees
breakaway the chains, he will give you rest
answer to the master, when we reach our destiny
every knee shall bow, every tongue confess

[solo]

answer to the master, gonna' bring you to your knees
breakaway the chains, he will give you rest
answer to the master, when we reach our destiny
every knee shall bow, every tongue confess

answer to the master, gonn' bring you to your knees
breakaway the chains, he will give you rest
answer to the master, when we reach our destiny
every knee shall bow, every tongue confess

answer to the master, gonna' bring you to your knees
breakaway the chains, he will set you free
8. Hungry Days (3:10)
I was a young boy when I heard the music call
staring at the concert stage my spirit craved it all
blinded by the spotlight, seduction rules the game
sold my soul to rock and roll,
there's no one else to blame

I still feel the power
I still feel it knocking at my door

hungry days
I remember hungry days

now I'm a young man I see a different light
shining down upon me, there's no fear, no end in sight
music is the magic and money is the slave
standing on the solid rock now
nothing seems the same

I still feel the power
I still hear it knocking at my door

hungry days!
I still remember hungry days
searching for my only fantasy
hungry days, oh, remember hungry days
time forever slips away
9. The King is Rising (3:33)
every morning on the evening news
I hear the same ol' story someone singing the blues
disaster striking out and you're not ready
California quakes and the Midwest floods
see the hurricanes and the Malibu mud
ice and snow, you know it drives you crazy

I hear the prophet of the modern day
shouting out from the side of the stage

the kind is rising
will you be ready to stand up and fight

there's feeling all across the land
times are tough--getting way out of hand
crime is on the run and there's no safety
war in the streets, the economy
nothing stays the same and there's nothing for me
everybody's frantic for the sure thing

I see the prophet of the modern day
stepping out from society's cage

the king is rising
will you be ready to stand up and fight
the king is rising
will you be ready to lay down your life

I don't think he'll take any longer, no,
I don't think he'll take any more

[solo]

the king is rising
will you be ready to stand up and fight
the king is rising
will you be ready to lay down your life
