Fire Down Under Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Swords and Tequila (3:15)
Dirty city, dirty games,
Dirty women, dirty shames.
The life that you lead,
The chance that you took.
A shadow in the night,
On the line, you're hooked.
If you see us comin',
Don't you, run the other way.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the fight.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the fight.
Wait for the night to fall,
To plan their attack.
Fightin' songs, on parade, they march.
An army in black.
Killers without a cause,
Rebels with no name.
City's gone to the underground,
Caught in a deadly game.
If you see us comin',
Don't you, run the other way.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the fight.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the fight.
And I just don't mean kickin' ass.
If you see us comin',
Don't you, run the other way.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the fight.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through the night.
Swords and tequila,
Carry me through, carry me through the fight.
2. Fire Down Under (2:34)
If you're lookin' for some action,
Runnin' against the tide.
Feel like causin' some destruction,
Spend some electric nights, on the danger line.
Fire down under.
Fire down under.
Flame and chrome, it burns the night,
Through your eyes, and in your mind.
Explode with savage thunder,
Hells gate, next up in line.
Fire down under.
Fire down under.
Fire down under.
Fire...
3. Feel the Same (4:30)
All alone, sitting inside now,
Are you waiting for me?
I'm feeling just a little bit slower,
Than I usually seem.
If I'm gonna take some chances,
Will you still remember me?
And in the end, from the haunted dreams,
You might find, what you really need.
You find what you need.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
When you reach the forest,
Which way, does the wind blow the trees?
Does the wheel inside you,
Turn like the wheel in me?
I can't give you no answers,
To the questions, that you've got.
I feel that things been missing,
And this time I gotta take the shot.
I'm gonna take the shot.
Feel the same,
Baby does it feel the same to you?
Feel the same,
It ain't easy when it happens to you.
Feel the same,
You don't know what I'm going through.
Feel the same,
It ain't easy when it happens, to you.
No, no, yeah.
Ohh here we go...
Feel the same,
Oh, baby does it feel the same to you?
Feel the same,
It ain't easy, when it happens to you.
Feel the same,
You don't know what I'm going through.
Feel the same,
Lord, it ain't easy when it happens, to you.
It ain't easy.
Feel the same,
Baby, does it feel the same to you?
Feel the same,
I gotta know, does it feel the same?
Feel the same,
You don't know.
Feel the same,
Tokyo Rose, she knows!
Feel the same,
Tell me how it feels.
Feel the same...
4. Outlaw (4:50)
Down below the border,
He robbed a bank in Mexico.
Half crazed on tequila,
He had a, half million in gold.
There's thunder in the ground,
And he could hear the sound.

A showdown in the distance,
They're gonna ride him down.
Bet your life on the silver ball,
Spin it, 'round the wheel.
Will it land on the black or the red?
The outlaw's got no deal.
When he gambled with women,
He kept an ace up his sleeve.
He always got what he came for,
He never played it clean.
Then he was blinded by passion,
Playing a game of fools.
Thought she was lucky,
Thought she was his best bet,
Guess you find out when you lose.
Bet your life on the silver ball,
Spin it, 'round the wheel.
Will it land on the black or the red?
The outlaw's got no deal.
Bet your life on the silver ball,
Spin it, 'round the wheel.
Will it land on the black or the red?
The outlaw's got no deal.
Bet your life on the silver ball,
Spin it, 'round the wheel.
Will it land on the black or the red?
The outlaw's got no deal.
Bet your life on the silver ball,
Spin it, 'round the wheel.
Will it land on the black or the red?
The outlaw's got no deal
5. Don't Bring Me Down (2:57)
You took my money, baby, you steal my cigarettes.
First chance I get, I'll be up and jet, I'm gone.
You beat me up, you threw me out,
You killed my dog and cat.
The "Ken-L-Ration" is yours,
I want the "Friskies" back.
Ooooh, don't bring me down.
Ooooh, don't bring me down.
No, no.
You took my car, for just one night,
Out to cruise the scene, that's what you told me.
Now the engine's gone, the tailpipe's bent,
My 8-Track's playin', Spring-st-st-steen.
You call me a wimp, you say I'm a chump,
Well your face is bent,
And you smell like gorilla dump.
Ooooh, don't bring me down.
Ooooh, don't bring me down.
No, no, no.
Hear what I said, hear what I said now?
Ooooh, don't, don't, don't,
Ooooh, don't bring me down.
No, no.
Ooooh, don't ya bring me down.
Ooooh, don't ya bring me down.
Ooooh, don't ya bring me down.
No, no, no
6. Don't Hold Back (3:15)
Tell me all your dreams,
How you want your love to grow.
We'll sail across the ocean,
There's so little that we know.
City streets,
So full of people, talkin' aimlessly.
Gotta climb above it all,
To a rainbow you can see, yeah.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Don't hold back,
There's a place, right by my side.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Let me be the crystal ship,
To a diamond sky of love.
Don't hold back.
From a corner of the sky above,
We'll watch the days go by.
People going nowhere fast,
Puts light, in a weary eye.
I'll love you baby,
Give you all the love I've got.
Keep you cool from the sun,
Dry from the rain,
If you're cold, I'll make you hot.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Don't hold back,
There's a place right by my side.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Anytime you see,
The one you really need.
Go on find the time,
Go on, let it shine.
Don't you remember?
Tell me all your dreams,
How you want your love to grow.
We'll sail across the ocean,
There's so little that we know.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Don't hold back,
There's a place, right by my side.
Don't hold back,
There ain't no place to hide.
Let me be a crystal ship,
To a diamond sky of love.
Don't hold back
7. Altar of the King (4:46)
On the night,
Through the fire and the light.
I hold my sword up,
Lightning, it strikes out.
Reach for the light,
Fight for my life.
A mystery 'till we meet,
The fountain of the king.
To the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
Evenings burning skies,
Reflects upon my eyes.
Out in the distance,
Utopia, resistance.
The power and the glory,
Through wild woods calling.
Evil is flowing,
Its own justice, to the fight.
At the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
The altar of the king.
Ohhh, ohhh.
faster and faster
To the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
To the altar of the king.
I'm so near her,
Sight's so clearer.
Riding faster, riding faster.
Evil is calling me, yeah
8. No Lies (4:10)
I'm feeling, just feeling,
Seems like it's all inside.
No meaning, no grieving.
Just the way that I can't hide.
I'm praying, she's saying,
No reason for me to disguise.
Love's waiting, and I'm taking,
So sorry, I tell no lies.
No lies.
Tell me no more lies.
No, no, no.
No lies.
Tell me no more lies.
Still trying, was crying,
Can you see, without open eyes?
Love's going down, to a place,
Where we can break our ties.
I'm praying, she's saying,
No reason for me to disguise.
Love's waiting, but I'm taking.
So sorry, I tell no lies.
No lies,
Tell me no more lies.
No lies,
Tell me no more lies.
No lies.
Tell me no more lies.
No lies.
No, no, no.
Tell me no more lies.
No more lies.
9. Run For Your Life (3:16)
I see trouble coming,
Trying to change my ways.
Take a little piece of me,
And squeeze what blood remains.
Joke and jive, and fool you,
Slip that sugar past your nose.
Hope when all is said and done,
You'll slip on an overdose.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Who is it that they're fooling?
Not this mothers son.
I'm screaming out for someone,
Whose life ain't on the run.
I know what you're looking for,
Just can't get enough.
Trapped inside a caged mind,
Playing it ready, and rough.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
You better run, run, run.
You better run, run, run.
You better run.
Yes you have my loving,
All your dirty tricks.
When you proved, you left a scar,
And now I want my licks.
You're a victim of blind disease.
All the tears won't help you,
Cause I want you on your knees.
Run for you life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run for your life.
Run...
RUN
FOR
YOUR
LIFE !
10. Flashbacks (4:02)
[Instrumental-Mostly]

"Are you ready to rock 'n roll?,
get off your feet, off your feet, Born To Be Wild"
"San Antonio, San Antone..."
"London, it's been two years,
and a very hard struggle,
to bring a band to Hammersmith,
are you ready to get down?,
a good one, please welcome for the first time,
our guests from New York City: RIOT"
"RIOT is on it's first visit to the
Bundes-Republik Of Germany, and as I understand it,
from talking with record company people,
the band is having to deal with a conflict of
image"
