Thunderdome Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. The Last Stance (intro) (0:56)
[Instrumental]
2. Thunderdome (4:26)
Stand up, looking pretty
Another face on the production line
Shot down, such a pity
You make a living serving cherry wine
I can see that we've got no choice
But to dismiss you from us all
-Another ones on the way
Anyway, by the end of the day
It's kind of good to see you crawl
-Ain't gonna get no second chance
I only hope we can buy some time
Before the ratings start to fall
Who's the master of the plan
In this Psycho Wonderland?
In the Thunderdome
You've got the right to win or loose
In the Thunderdome
You've got a choice but you can't choose
In the Thunderdome
Behind a shroud of circumstance
In the Thunderdome
In the Thunderdome
Bright lights make you flirty
You say you want to be a friend of mine
Backstage, getting dirty
You got your status doing overtime
I can see that we've got no choice
But to dismiss you from us all
-Another ones on the way
Anyway, by the end of the day
It's kind of good to see you crawl
-Ain't gonna get no second chance
I only hope we can buy some time
Before the ratings start to fall
Who's the master of the plan
In this Psycho Wonderland?
In the Thunderdome
You've got the right to win or loose
In the Thunderdome
You've got a choice but you can't choose
In the Thunderdome
Behind a shroud of circumstance
In the Thunderdome
In the Thunderdome
In this Psycho Wonderland...
In the Thunderdome
You've got the right to win or loose
In the Thunderdome
You've got a choice but you can't choose
In the Thunderdome
Behind a shroud of circumstance
In the Thunderdome
'Cause you can never settle for less
In the Thunderdome
Watch out for the martyr
'Cause he'll be flooding your empty screen
In the Thunderdome
Can't look but you gotta
Another day in a broken dream - so helpless
In the Thunderdome
Keep pusing the limits
Until the best of them play a round
In the Thunderdome
Keep making the headlines
Until there's only the underground
Cut the lights now
In this Thunderdome...
3. Gods Come Together (4:46)
Now I kneel into an empty corridor
And I'm chasing down the ugly beast
His teeth are razor sharp, so they're telling me
And I'm soon to be his final feast
Then I walk inside into an open door
And I'm moving slow just like a snake
I'm not the only one with a loaded gun
And I soon wil be the forgotten son
Do you hear those distant sirens?
Candid eyes admire the violence
Now's the time for all the gods to come together
Now I see with no exception
Now's the time and all the gods must join together
Now I dream, the walls are falling down
So you just sit at home with your remote control
And your eyes are focused on the screen
The danger's over there, you don't even care
'Cause the camera takes you everywhere
Do you hear those distant sirens?
Candid eyes admire the violence
Now's the time for all the gods to come together
Now I see with no exception
Now's the time and all the gods must join together
Now I dream, the walls are falling down
We never understand
Still we try to make demands
On a common circumstance
Look into the mirror of your mind
-Is it too enchanting?
Deep beneath the surface you will find
-We are so demanding
Listen to the whispers of your heart
-Can we be mistaken?
Look into the fury they call art
-For a new beginning...
We're not blind!!!
Would you know the color of fear
When it floods your screen?
And do you hear those distant sirens?
Candid eyes admire the violence
Now's the time for all the gods to come together
Now I see with no exception
Now's the time and all the gods must join together
Now I dream, the walls are falling down
4. Carnaby Road (4:50)
Sit here and wonder why I've got no place to go
Been waiting so long, I don't know what I've been waiting for
Too much consistency has stopped me in my tracks
Too many reasons why there ain't no turning back
I'm chasing this dream, as hard as it seems
And I've had to understand what it means
Keep pushing on to where I belong
To where I come alive
Goodbye Carnaby Road! - Where I lost my mind
Drove me out on my own - Left it all behind
Now my moment has come - Till the end of time
No more yesterdays - It's just the only way
Only way - Lifetime holiday!
Still running headstrong, but the stones don't break my stride
I've fell to pieces, but I've never lost my pride
Into the jungle of the Greedy and the Meek
Against the powers of the obvious I speak
I'm chasing this dream, as hard as it seems
And I've had to understand what it means
Keep pushing on to where I belong
To where I come alive
Goodbye Carnaby Road! - Where I lost my mind
Drove me out on my own - Left it all behind
Now my moment has come - Till the end of time
No more yesterdays - It's just the only way
Only way, so I pray, I'm going on a lifetime holiday!
I've been waiting so long, I got no place to go
Before I fall to pieces, yeah!
Goodbye Carnaby Road! - I've been chasing a dream
Drove me out on my own - And it's not all that it seems
Now my moment has come - It's a road to nowhere
Too many reasons why there ain't no going back
Goodbye Carnaby Road! - I don't want to stay
Drove me out on my own - So I've gone away
Now my moment has come - Till the end of time
No more yesterdays - It's just the only way
Only way to a lifetime holiday, yeah!
To a lifetime holiday, yeah!
Come on now!
5. Here I Am (4:38)
When the clock strikes at midnight
I can hear the engine turning round
Another day, another night
So I must sign the book that would lie in the hands of my fate
With the pride in my heart
My soul and my mind can now
Cross through the world into light
But I've travelled so far
And followed the signs
Here I am
Gonna take a chance to be free
Gonna be the future for me
Running with the danger
So follow me
Here I am
Living in a world full of pain
All I want to do is maintain
Shaking off the anger
It's killing me
Here I am
I don't fear the tangled grace
The symptoms of a faith that we have weakened
The only strength I've displaced
I've been told holds the book that would lie in the hands of your fate
With the pride in my heart
My soul and my mind can now
Cross through the world oh so blind
And I've travelled so far
So show me the signs
Here I am
Gonna take a chance to be free
Gonna be the future for me
Running with the danger
So follow me
Here I am
Living in a world full of pain
All I want to do is maintain
Shaking off the anger
It's killing me
Here I am
Through the madness I'll keep on searching
In the future were dreams and memories
Come together for they will be no more
In this world full of pain
Sign the book that would lie in the hands of my fate
With the pride in my heart
My soul and my mind can now
Cross through the world into light
But I've travelled so far
And followed the signs
Here I am
Gonna take a chance to be free
Gonna be the future for me
Running with the danger
So follow me
Here I am
Living in a world full of pain
All I want to do is maintain
Shaking off the anger
It's killing me
Here I am
Gonna take a chance to be free
Gonna be the future for me
Running with the danger
So follow me
Here I am
Living in a world full of pain
All I want to do is maintain
Shaking off the anger
And now I'm free
Here I am
6. That Was Yesterday (4:45)
Know it's late and love has left me in this empty room
Should I gaze into the coming storm?
When I face the lies I need a drink to get me by
And I taste the tears in your eyes
When the dust finally settles it's just you and me
On a journey to somewhere - I know we will find the way
There were days we were living and feeling so free
In our hearts there was meaning so how can it be?
Can you tell me why the sun don't shine?
Can you tell me why you left me blind?
Will you give me back again what's mine?
Cause I'll be waiting
Can you tell me why you ran away?
Were you looking for a better way?
To confront the life that you've betrayed
But that was yesterday - yesterday
Should I close the door on all the things that seem so right?
In my mind I shove them all away
When the day is done I try to wash the hurt inside
Cause it makes me feel some kind of happiness
When the dust finally settles it's just you and me
On a journey to somewhere - I know we will find the way
There were days we were living and feeling so free
In our hearts there was meaning so how can it be?
Can you tell me why the sun don't shine?
Can you tell me why you left me blind?
Will you give me back again what's mine?
Cause I'll be waiting
Can you tell me why you ran away?
Were you looking for a better way?
To confront the life that you've betrayed
But that was yesterday - and I'm still here waiting, oh:
Oh, please tell me why
Can you tell me why the sun don't shine?
Can you tell me why you left me blind?
Will you give me back again what's mine?
Cause I'm still waiting for you
Can you tell me why you ran away?
Were you looking for a better way?
To confront the life that you've betrayed
But that was yesterday
We were living, hearts were dreaming, there was meaning
That was yesterday
We were living, hearts were dreaming, there was meaning
But that was yesterday
That was yesterday
7. Shelter (4:48)
You've been trying to believe in what you do
Always looking for a reason to go through
This incompatibility has
Got you focused on another dream, and yeah
Giving meaning to the purpose just don't kick
All this running round in circles makes you sick
There's allot of technicalities and
There's allot of things you just don't see, and yeah
Cause I want to know -
Will you ever find the way:?
Follow your heart, follow your senses
Walking a one way road - longing shelter
It might be hard, it might be easy
Walking a one way road - longing shelter from the storm
Times are changing but song remains the same
Kind of dated, kind of retro, kind of lame
Do you really even understand why
Nothing's going quite the way you planned, and yeah
Are you ready to indulge into the truth -
Of the consequences captured by your youth?
Take a good look at the way you're going
Are you moving without even knowing? Yeah!
Cause I want to know -
Will you ever find the way:?
Follow your heart, follow your senses
Walking a one way road - longing shelter
It might be hard, it might be easy
Walking a one way road - longing shelter from the storm
A one way road - longing shelter from the storm
A one way road - longing shelter from the storm
From the storm:.
Cause I want to know -
Will you ever find the way:?
Follow your heart, follow your senses
Walking a one way road - longing shelter
It might be hard, it might be easy
Walking a one way road - longing shelter from the storm
A one way road - longing shelter from the storm
A one way road - longing shelter from the storm
Give me shelter!
8. Retro Lullaby (4:02)
Give us a reason to go down
With all these patriots around
And we know
Everyday is like a haunting nightmare
Everyday you hear the sound
Let the pounding Thunder
Make them stop and wonder
With the essence of this Retro lullaby
Like the final pages
Written through the ages
We will never end this Retro lullaby
Not out of mind, but out of sight
Beneath the shelter of the night
And you know
Only we can feed your raging hunger
In this dominion of delight
Let the pounding Thunder
Make them stop and wonder
With the essence of this Retro lullaby
Like the final pages
Written through the ages
We will never end this Retro lullaby
It takes you away
And breaks you away from it all
Our spirits will fly
To the clouds of minds eye
And nothing will keep us from coming around once again!
We will make them hear...
The pounding Thunder
Make them stop and wonder
With the essence of this Retro lullaby
Like the final pages
Written through the ages
We will never end this Retro lullaby
Like there's no tomorrow
There will be no sorrow
In the verses of this Retro lullaby
Bound to this illusion
I've made my conclusion
We will never end this Retro lullaby
Yes, we'll take you away
With this Retro lullaby
Oh yes, our spirits will fly - through your mind
9. My Sharona (The Knacks cover) (4:21)
[The Knacks cover]

Come on!
Ooh, my little pretty one, my pretty one
When you gonna give me some time, Sharona
Ooh, you make my motor run, my motor run
Gun it comin' off o' the line, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up for the touch of the younger kind
My, my, my, aye-aye, whoa!
M-m-m-my Sharona
Come a little closer, huh, a-will ya, huh?
Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona
Keepin' it a mystery, it gets to me
Runnin' down the length of my thigh, Sharona
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up for the touch of the younger kind
My, my, my, aye-aye, whoa!
M-m-m-my Sharona
M-m-m-my Sharona
When you gonna give to me, a gift to me
Is it just a matter of time, Sharona?
Is it d-d-destiny, d-destiny
Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?
Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind
I always get it up for the touch of the younger kind
My, my, my, aye-aye, whoa!
M-m-m-m-m-m-m-my, my, my, aye-aye, whoa!
M-m-m-my Sharona
M-m-m-my Sharona
M-m-m-my Sharona
M-m-m-my Sharona
Ooooooo-ohhh, my Sharona
Ooooooo-ohhh, my Sharona
Ooooooo-ohhh, my Sharona
10. As Deep As I Am (5:33)
(What good is a laugh, without a smile?)
A light shines to the floor
And then it fades away
Like the floods I've made before
Yes, the river is my guide:
To know all that I know
A curse that can't be undone
Damns are built to hold back the overflow
But the river breaks aside:
All that I wanted
Was to really understand
And all that I needed
Was a little patience
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
An infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
The thoughts seem to rush out of me
To fill an endless void
To keep the calm where there's usually tragedy
Yes the river is my guide:
Alone, I find the way
But I can't convince myself
To take a chance for a new opportunity
Like the river took my pride:
All that I wanted
Was to live my hopeless dream
And that's why I needed
Your complete attention
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
An infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
You're the last thing on my mind
Been waiting so damn long
No excuses to be made
So infatuated
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am,
In the darkness of an infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
It must have been my destiny
It must have been the best for me
And no one's gonna change this, as deep as I am
It could have been my destiny
And no one else will ever know but me
And I'm not gonna change this, as deep as I am - no:
What good is a laugh, without a smile?
A light shines to the floor
And then it fades away
Like the floods I've made before
Yes, the river is my guide:
To know all that I know
A curse that can't be undone
Damns are built to hold back the overflow
But the river breaks aside:
All that I wanted
Was to really understand
And all that I needed
Was a little patience
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
An infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
The thoughts seem to rush out of me
To fill an endless void
To keep the calm where there's usually tragedy
Yes the river is my guide:
Alone, I find the way
But I can't convince myself
To take a chance for a new opportunity
Like the river took my pride:
All that I wanted,
Was to live my hopeless dream
And that's why I needed,
Your complete attention
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
An infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
You're the last thing on my mind
Been waiting so damn long
No excuses to be made
So infatuated
As deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am
Will you ever be as deep as I am, as deep as I am, as deep as I am?
I never felt right, I never felt wrong, as deep as I am
In the darkness of an infinite night, an unfinished song, as deep as I am:
It must have been my destiny
It must have been the best for me
And no one's gonna change this, as deep as I am
It could have been my destiny
And no one else will ever know but me
And I'm not gonna change this, as deep as I am - no:
11. Another Wrong Makes Right (5:05)
There's a man with just a head - He tells me it's all right
To believe that all the evil men - Will turn to run in fright
So he asks me if I'm not too young, to really understand?
Then he tells me with a plastic smile: "tune in late tonight again"
Whoa... In a world of madness
We finally found a way
To bring justice into light - via satellite
Whoa... It's a ghostly sadness
But there's always a price to pay
And the blindness shows the ignorance of man
Now the silence has gone
And I'm crying out with a message to the ones:
Load your guns! Load your guns before the night!
Still you need to be strong
And believe in all of the system we belong
Load your guns! Load your guns before the night!
Another wrong makes right
Focus your eyes and dream away the sanity
Capitalize on all that you stand for - So sure
Whoa: Such a world of madness
And nothing will ever change
But I don't believe we'll ever be the same
Now the silence has gone
And I'm crying out with a message to the ones:
Load your guns! Load your guns before the night!
Still you need to be strong
And believe in all of the system we belong
Load your guns! Load your guns before the night!
Another wrong makes right
Another victim to the fight - another wrong to make it right
Another victim to the fight - another wrong to make it right
Another victim to the fight - another wrong to make it right
Now the silence has gone
And I'm crying out with a message to the ones:
Load your guns! Load your guns before the night!
Still you need to be strong
And believe in all of the system we belong
Load your guns! (Load you guns!) Load your guns before the night!
Another wrong makes right
Another wrong makes it right
So keep your guns by your side
Another wrong makes it right
Makes it right
12. See Your Face (4:01)
Wake up in the morning, so blinded by the light
That I just lie and wait for the night
Years of precious moments don't add up to a day
Now I just feel you drifting away
If I see your face again, with a smile that's just pretend
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
If you're looking for place to enjoy my own disgrace
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
I don't mind believing in something I can't see
But if your not here there's nothing for me
And I don't need a reason - I'm gonna make you understand
These words can't change the feeling at hand
If I see your face again, with a smile that's just pretend
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
If you're looking for place to enjoy my own disgrace
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
Yes I know, I've got a lot of complications - a lot of the time
Yes I know, you've got a lot on your mind
Ooh yeah
So many questions with too many answers
I don't need a reason when I see your face you'll understand
Places, so many places
Changing the faces of the people I used to know
Show me, why can't you show me?
Now that you know me. There's somewhere I've got to go
If I see your face again, with a smile that's just pretend
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
If you're looking for place to enjoy my own disgrace
I'll be living on the edge of paradise
Your paradise, your paradise
Yes I know, I've got a lot of complications - a lot of the time
Yes I know, you've got so much on your mind
