Rock Until You Drop Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Hard Ride (3:10)
You`ve got me coming and going
You floor me without a sound
I try to roll with your punches
But you keep laying them down

Giving me a hard time
Making me lose my mind
You`re giving me a rough ride
You`ve got me going
You`re driving me wild

I`ve got my hands on your assets
It brings the tears to your eyes
You wanna check my credentials
You`re gonna get a surprise

Giving me a hard time
Making me lose my mind
You`re giving me a rough ride
You`ve got me going
You`re driving me wild

You`ve got me coming and going
You floor me without a sound
I try to roll with your punches
But you keep laying them down

Giving me a hard time
Making me lose my mind
You`re giving me a rough ride
You`ve got me going
You`re driving me wild
2. Hell Patrol (4:43)
Running - blinded in the night
Gotta pick my feet up off the ground
Keep out of sight and make no sound
I tried to tell them no right from the start
I`m a runaway a raging fury
A burning stallion with thunder in his heart

You can burn my body
You can tear my soul
Bend me with your torment
But still the answer`s
no no no no no no no!
You won`t get me on the hell patrol

Shadow maker - help me out
Got to find a place to hide tonight
A place that they won`t know about
The hell patrol won`t stop until they`ve won
You can run away a million times
Yet still the hidings just begun

You can burn my body
You can tear my soul
Bend me with your torment
But still the answer`s
no no no no no no no!
You won`t get me on the hell patrol

Running - blinded in the night
Gotta pick my feet up off the ground
Keep out of sight and make no sound
I tried to tell them no right from the start
I`m a runaway a raging fury
A burning stallion with thunder in his heart

You can burn my body
You can tear my soul
Bend me with your torment
But still the answer`s
no no no no no no no!
You won`t get me on the hell patrol
3. Don't Need Your Money (3:22)
Don`t want no one night stand
I don`t need no helping hand
You ain`t comin` round to drink my booze
You won`t get the money you lent
You know the stuff that pays my rent
Just stick around cos` you`re gonna lose

Just leave don`t look behind you
I don`t need your money honey
Just spend it on a loser
I don`t need your money honey
Get off my back
Get off my track
And I`ll tell you if you want facts
I don`t want no rich fat daddy trying to change my life
when I just wanna relax

I don`t want your Barclay card
You know you make my life so hard
You think you got me feeding out of your hand
Go take a ride in your Lotus Elite
I`ll stick to walking on my two feet
I`ve got to prove to you that I`m more than a man

Just leave don`t look behind you
I don`t need your money honey
Just spend it on a loser
I don`t need your money honey
Get off my back
Get off my track
And I`ll tell you if you want facts
I don`t want no rich fat daddy trying to change my life
when I just wanna relax

Just leave don`t look behind you
I don`t need your money honey
Just spend it on a loser
I don`t need your money honey
Get off my back
Get off my track
And I`ll tell you if you want facts
I don`t want no rich fat daddy trying to change my life
when I just wanna relax
4. Over the Top (3:51)
Time to get up and it`s time to get down
Pick myself up and no messing around
Tell allthe boys that it`s time to move otu
We`re on our way and we ain`t got no doubt

Yeah - we`re going over the top
Yeah - we`re going over the top

I`§ going dizzy my head`s in a spin
I`d like to stop but where would I begin
We`re going crazy the place is alight
Looking for action you`ll get it tonight

Yeah - we`re going over the top
Yeah - we`re going over the top


Time to get up and it`s time to get down
Pick myself up and no messing around
Tell allthe boys that it`s time to move otu
We`re on our way and we ain`t got no doubt

Yeah - we`re going over the top
Yeah - we`re going over the top

(instrumental)
6. For the Future (4:04)
Marching - to the front we are
Fighting - for the right to be
Living - in a place that we call our own

Fight we will fight
And they will run
Through the snow and
The raging sun
Steel will clash
Their blood will run
For the future

Dying - for the women and the
Children - Oh the forge a generation
And to carry on the quest `till the day they can rest

Fight we will fight
And they will run
Through the snow and
The raging sun
Steel will clash
Their blood will run
For the future

Darkness - will descend on the mountain
You will attack from the West side
I will attack from the rear
7. Rock Until You Drop (4:02)
Don`t think you can make it
Don`t think you want to try
Sit back in your easy chair
And the world will pass you by
Life is what you make it
That`s what people say
You`ve got to get it together
Make it your own way

You`ve gotta rock
Rock until you drop

Got to get some action
Got to rock tonight
Got to get the volume
To slay you with its might
Get into metal
That` s what its abou
Come on everybody - Now lets hear you shout

You`ve gotta rock
Rock until you drop

So you think you`re sitting pretty
But your life is passing by
Make no sign of living
It don`t matter if you die
You`ve got to think of something
Give it all you`ve got
Make your life worth something
Or it`ll cost the lot

You`ve gotta rock
Rock until you drop
8. Nobody's Hero (3:50)
I've been to hell but I came through
And now they say I'm not good for you
Your Mammy says I'm a technical hitch
And your Daddy says I'm a son of a bitch
Life ain't the same for a man of war
Don't even know what I was fightin' for
They say kill I say why - no mercy too late to cry

So many memories too much pain
Same old nightmares again and again
Guns to the left of me guns to the right
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Only the strong survive
You've got to come and get me if you want me alive

Looks like I'm left on the shelf
I'm just a prisoner within myself
Try so hard but can't break free
Everybody's giving me the third degree
Brand me a killer brand me a liar
My head is spinning but my hearts on fire
Name, rank and number my lips are sealed
I'll keep my shooting for the battlefield

So many memories too much pain
Same old nightmares again and again
Guns to the left of me guns to the right
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Only the strong survive
You've got to come and get me if you want me alive

No where to run no where to go
No where to hide when the lights are low
No one to feel no one to touch
No wonder I'm feeling tired so much

So many memories too much pain
Same old nightmares again and again
Guns to the left of me guns to the right
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Nobodys hero
Only the strong survive
You've got to come and get me if you want me alive
9. Hellraiser (4:21)
Look out!
Mama let me out on a Saturday night, she said
'Now go out and get her, go and hold her tight', I said
'Now Mama you don't understand
Ev'ry time I touch her hand
It's like I'm burnin' in the fires of hell
And if I hold her too long, you never can tell
What'll happen to me, wouldn't want you to see'

Look out!
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Nat'ral born raver, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Nat'ral born raver, yeh, yeh, yeh
Look out!

She's like a live bomb shell, like a flash out of hell
And when she's shaking her - ooh - well, ev'ryone fell at her feet
And that's neat and she took me completely
By surprise with her ultra sonic eyes
That were flashing like hysterical danger signs
That said beware where you tread or you'll go out of your head

Look out!
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Nat'ral born raver, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
She's a hell raiser, star chaser, trail blazer
Nat'ral born raver, yeh, yeh, yeh
Look out!
10. Action (3:15)
"Action"

So you think you'll take another piece of me
To satisfy your intellectual need
Do you want, do you want...Action?

Gonna bring you down cause you're pushin' me
You gotta recognize my superiority

Liar, liar
You know you believed it
Liar, liar
Cause I'm the main man
And that's why...

Everybody wants a piece of the action
Everybody needs a main attraction
I got what everybody needs
Satisfaction guaranteed
Everybody wants a piece of the action

I was suicidal cause she was my idol
Baby baby baby bring it to your knees
Well there was a time I would have walked the line
Don't you bring me down with your insatiable greed

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Do you want... Action!! Action!!
Everybody wants, everybody needs
Everybody wants, everybody needs

[Repeat Chorus]
11. Lambs to the Slaughter (3:51)
Most people take it they get pushed down
Bared out of their minds just hanging around
Make no decisions they out on a limb
Labelled and numbered prospects are grim.

Yeah its time to fight back
Yeah its time to attack.

Taken their pride is locked in room
Lambs to the slaughter your turns comes soon
Picked on and pushed they don't stand for their rights
When they come to they just turn out the lights.
12. Tyrant of the Airways (7:16)
Watch this his scorn
Paid for a showdown
Tracking the steel
Come through the air
This decoration
The length he has taken
To what to his score
In this game they call war

[chorus]
The race has just begun
Track your course an hour to the sun
Tyrant of the airways
No turning back, coz he's on the attack
Tyrant of the airways
He'll tear you apart and rip out your heart

You know your case, the hot on the hot
Deep in the blade you scream like a whore
Back on this night from the apple of light
While you twist and you turn until you are no more

[chorus]

[long power break...mmm ,,/]

Contact aah..

[lead break...,,/]

oooo ooOHHH

[chorus]

Message of hope!
Race through the airways
Fleeting the time we will not forget
The rumble of thunder and engines of black
Thunder and lightning the blindness of night

The race is never borne
The price is right we do it just for fun!
Tyrant of the airways

Tyrant of the airways

[blistering lead break...,,/]

oooo ooOHHH

[chorus]

oooo ooOHHH
