Holy Man Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. No Salvation
I feel like running down that road again
The streets of darkness are my only friend
Can't stop the madness, voices in my head
Someone is screaming, there's trouble dead ahead

Are you ready to give it all
Are you ready to take a fall
I'm looking for heaven's light
it's not shining down tonight
Now I've got you in my sights

Congratulations, you're the chosen one
Got you where I want you
And there's no salvation
Desperate situation, got nowhere to run
I'll do what I want to
And there's no salvation

Silently moving in the shadows of the night
Got a fire in my blood, full moon in my eyes
I need satisfaction, there's a hunger in soul
Action to reaction, the bell is gonna toll
Are you ready to shoot the thrill
Gonna move in for the kill
A moment we share in time
Spill the sacred wine
Your destiny is mine

Congratulations, you're the chosen one
Got you where I want you
And there's no salvation
Desperate situation, got nowhere to run
I'll do what I want to
And there's no salvation

Are you ready to shoot the thrill
Gonna move in for the kill
A moment we share in time
Spill the sacred wine
Your destiny is mine
Congratulations,
you're the chosen one Got you where I want you
And there's no salvation
Desperate situation, got nowhere to run
I'll do what I want to
And there's no salvation
2. Holy Man
Lay your hands on the screen
Say the word and I'll set you free
I can wash away your sins
But you gotta show me you believe
Your lousy life is filled with guilt and shame
Dance with the devil and go down in flames
Lay your hands on the screen
Say the word and I'll set you free

Fall on your knees
Forgiveness, please
Father, Son, Holy Ghost
And we're going coast to coast

I'm a holy man
That's what I am
I'm gonna take you to the promised land
I'm a holy man

If you wanna go to heaven
Well, you gotta make a deal, yeah
I can answer all your prayers
You know I hold the power to heal
A man was crucified to save your soul
Bring ail the faithful, give me silver and gold
If you wanna go to heaven
Well, you gotta make a deal

Fall on your knees
Forgiveness, please
Oh, but you ain't gettin' up till there's a dollar in the cup

I'm a holy man
Oh, that's what I am
I'm gonna take you to the promised land
I'm a holy man

You gotta give till it hurts if you wanna be saved
You know your sins are gonna follow you to the grave

No need to worry
It's part of the plan
Of the holy man, holy man

Fall on your knees
Forgiveness, please
Oh, but you ain't gettin' up till there's a dollar in the cup

I'm a holy man
Oh, that's what I am
I'm gonna take you to the promised land
I'm a holy man
3. Anything
I only have to blame myself
I can't put this on no one else
Why did I walk away from the best thing I had
Memories fill this empty place
No one could ever take your place
just another case of good lovin' gone bad

I don't care how long it takes
There's no sacrifice I wouldn't make
Baby, to get you back somehow

I would do anything
To hold you in my arms
I never should've let you go
But like a fool I didn't know
I would give everything
The sun, the moon, the stars
If only they were mine to give
You know I just can't live without you

I'm only living day by day
Thinking 'bout mistakes I made
1 wish I could turn back the hands of time
Don't know what to do or say
But I can't let it end this way
All I need's a chance to change your mind

I don't care how long it takes
There's no sacrifice I wouldn't make
Baby, to get you back somehow

I would do anything
To hold you in my arms
I never should've let you go
But like a fool I didn't know
I would give everything
The sun, the moon, the stars
If they were mine to give
Oh, I just can't live without you

I would do anything
To hold you in my arms
I never should've let you go
Like a fool I didn't know
I would give everything
The sun, the moon, the stars
If they were mine to give
Oh, I just can't live without you
4. Honest Crime
Oh Lord, have mercy on me
I swear this time it's love in the first degree
I got no one but myself to blame
Just a foolish heart temporarily insane

Taking my chances, I've made some mistakes
Lord knows I've done my time
I can't win from losin'
Well, that's just the brakes
'Cause love is an honest crime

Oh girl, help me save my soul
From a lonely life sentence with no parole
If I'm convicted, I know too well
They're gonna send me back to heartbreak hotel

Taking my chances, I'm raisin' the stakes
I'm gonna roll the dice just one more time
Well, I plead guilty if that's what it takes
'Cause love is an honest crime

Well, I don't need to lie to you, baby
I'm layin' my heart on the line
We can talk about this and that
But we both know where it's at
Love is an honest crime

Taking my chances, I'm raisin' the stakes
I'm gonna roll the dice just one more time
Well, I plead guilty if that's what it takes
'Cause love is an honest crime
5. Wolves At The Door
Everybody's got their hand out
Everybody wants their share
Spending it like water
Money that isn't even there

You're livin' on plastic
And everything's fine
One day you turn around
And you're three months behind

I've got wolves at the door
This is a whole lot more
Than I bargained for
I've got wolves at the door
Piling up the interest
I can't stand it anymore

Visa, Visa everywhere
Gold Mastercards
We got American excess
And they know just who you are

Nose pressed to the window
You start to get that itch
Come thirty days later
The payback's a bitch

There's wolves at the door
Oh, squeeze me all you want to
Can't get blood from a stone
There's wolves at the door
Promise I'll pay you someday
Now leave me alone

Oh, little by little
You know it all adds up
They're gonna come for you someday
You get caught in the middle
You're better with a paper cup
They're gonna get you either way

Maxed out on the credit line
This is what you get
Cash, card and carry
Now you're drowning in debt

Got a two minute warning
You're in over your head
Shades are drawn, the lights are out
You're hiding under the bed

There's wolves at the door
This is a whole lot more
Than I bargained for
There's wolves at the door
Piling up the interest
I can't stand it anymore

Got wolves at the door
Squeeze me all you want to
Can't get blood from a stone
Got wolves at the door
Promise I'll pay you someday
Leave me alone
6. Angel
I was wrong but it's alright
I learned my lesson this time
Hope is gone and I'm fading in the light
Why don't you show me a sign

Angel save me
Save me tonight
You're the only one who can
One touch away
From changing my life
Heaven is in your hands, in your hands

Words unspoken, burning in your eyes
I see the ashes of truth
Trust is broken and faith is compromised
But I still believe in you

Angel save me
Save me tonight
You're the only one who can
One touch away
From your shining light
Heaven is in your hands

Angel save me
Save me tonight
You're the only one who can
One touch away
From your shining light
Heaven is in your hands
7. Something New
Toss and turn
Can't sleep at night
Wondering how you'll ever survive
Livin' a life
So unsatisfied
Sometimes you feel more dead than alive

You better look around
See what's coming down
Baby, don't turn away
I've got more to say
Now tell me 1 ain't lyin'

You need something new
To get you through your life
You need something new
To get you through tonight

Everyday feels like the one before
How long can you take the grind
Looking for something but you never score
You must be going out of your mind

You gotta make a change
And do something strange
Now you know you should
It'll do you good
Now tell me 1 ain't lying

You need something new
To get you through your life
You need something new
To get you through tonight

Start jumpin' ship
I'll take you on a trip
You won't be the same
Baby, let's get strange

You gotta make a change
And do something strange
Baby, you know you should
Come on, it'll do you good

Now tell me I ain't lying
You need something new
To get your through your life
You need something new
To get you through tonight
8. Freedoms Wings
Grey dawn came crashing down
Swallowed up the night
Caught in the wake
Waves of disappointment
Wondered if I'd ever get out alive

Silence took hold of me
Pulled me back inside
Frozen by fate
Can't take one more step
Might as well learn how to fly

I set my broken dreams
On freedom's wings
Flying high, away from everything
Lift me up where the angels sing
On freedoms wings

I was thrown into the fire
Baptized by the flame
Dragged through speed-lined alleyways
Wondered if I'd ever be the same
Dark clouds clearing now
Heaven's open wide
Gravity lost its hold on me
Finally I learned to fly

I set my broken dreams
On freedom's wings
Flying high, away from everything
Lift me up where the angels sing
On freedom's wings

Heaven is open wide
Might as well learn how to fly
I set my broken dreams
On freedom's wings
Flying high, away from everything
Lift me up where the angels sing
On freedom's wings
9. Love Is Blind
Love has struck, it has before
As logic flies right out the door
Dreams of glory come undone
Your careless heart's a loaded gun

You swear to God I heard you say
Not another passion play
You see the light and you want it all
It shines too bright and you hit the wall

When love is blind
You're in the dark, you're just doin' time
When love is blind
No answers will you find
To satisfy when love is blind

It draws you in and you can't resist
Stop makin' sense 'cause it don't exist
You walk around a bed of nails
And suddenly your vision fails
You're so secure inside your shell
You've fallen down that wishin' well
Climbin' out you gasp for air
you look around but there's no one there

When love is blind
You're in the dark, you're just doin' time
When love is blind
Oh, no answers you will find
To satisfy when love is blind

You need a big tin cup
And a long white cane
To feel around, to break the chain
Oh, perfect your sense of touch
It's gonna mean so much
When you discover love is blind in you

When love is blind
You're in the dark, you're just doin' time
When love is blind
No answers you will find
When love is blind
10. Midnight In Tokyo
You never been, well, you gotta go
You never seen, well, you'll never know
It's better than any three ring show
I'm telling you, yeah, I'm telling you

Sixteen hours on a breeze
East of anywhere you wanna be
A mollion-lights you just can't believe
I'm telling you, oh, I'm telling you

Around the world
In a single day
My dark eyed girl
Takes my breath away

It captures your heart and you can't let go
Watch the rising sun over the rainbow
Midnight in Tokyo, midnight in Tokyo

In Ropongge at the Lexington Queen
Everybody's there making the scene
It's like dancing in a neon
dream I'm telling you, oh, I'm telling you, yeah

Pump up the volume, turn it up to ten
It's like no place that I've ever been
You can bet I'm coming back again
I'm telling you, yeah, I'm telling you

Around the world
In a single day
My dark eyed girl
Takes my breath away

It captures your heart and you can't let go, oh no
Watch the rising sun over the rainbow
My dark eyed girl
Takes my breath away

It captures your heart and you can't let go, oh no
You watch the rising sun over the rainbow
It's midnight in Tokyo, yeah, yeah, midnight in Tokyo
11. Babylon
The brotherhood has you all in control
The secret society
They lead you blind, they jam up your soul
You can't fight what you can't see

Welcome to the new world order
The party's always going on
Follow me down like lambs to the slaughter
They got you livin' in Babylon

You live your life wrapped up in chains
Freedom is just a disguise
Play with your mind, running head games
Pull the wool over your eyes

Welcome to the new world order
The party's always going on
Follow me down like lambs to the slaughter
They got you livin' in Babylon

The sacred rite, the sacrifice
The black sun is on the rise
Ignorance comes at too high a price
We're lost in a fool's paradise

Welcome to the new world order
The party's always going on
Follow me down like lambs to the slaughter
Looks like you're livin' in Babylon

Welcome to the new world order
The party's always going on
Follow me down like lambs to the slaughter
Looks like you're livin' in Babylon
12. Closer
In a lonely world of fear and doubt
It's hard to find the truth sometimes
Remember love is what it's all about
And put your trembling hand in mine

Don't you think it's time to be
Everything we feel
Put your faith in you and me
Live a dream that's real
I will be waiting

Open your hear, girl, and you'll understand
(closer and closer)
If we believe, girl, I know that we can
(closer and closer)
Changing my life with a touch of your hand
Closer and closer to you

When you feel like giving up the fight
And tenderness is so hard to find
Together we'll hold back the night
It's you and me right down the line

Life is only what you choose
Make no mistake
Loneliness is all you'll lose
Now don't you hesitate
I have been waiting

Open your heart, girl, and you'll understand
(closer and closer)
If we believe, girl, I know that we can
(closer and closer)
Changing my life with a touch of your hand
Closer and closer to you

Life is only what you choose
Make no mistake
Loneliness is all you'll lose
Now don't you hesitate
I have been waiting

Open your heart, girl, and you'll understand
(closer and closer)
If we believe, girl, I know that we can
(closer and closer)
Changing my life with a touch of your hand
Closer and closer to you
13. Too Blue To Sing The Blues
Oh, the night was so electric, yeah
You could feel the fever in the air
I got up and got myself together
Destination anywhere

I heard the city, it was calling
I started moving to the beat
That's when my heart, it started falling
And I saw her standing in the street
She was looking so sweet

And now I'm running
Down that lonesome road
She put my love in overload
She took my heart, broke it in two
Now I'm too blue to sing the blues

Packed up my bags and grabbed my guitar
Went down to catch a Greyhound bus
I gotta leave her memory behind me
Some other town might change my luck

I'm on this big old rig and wheeling
My life is one long highway sign
But I can't stop this sinking feeling
How can one woman be so unkind
I'm rolling down the line

And now I'm running
Down that lonesome road
She put my love in overload
She took my heart, broke it in two
Now I'm too blue to sing the blues
