Nightbreaker Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Soldier (4:54)
Woman shed tears of Sorrow for their men so far away
With hope they wait for tomorrow - but in the night
They bow their heads and pray
They live by the sword and the gun
And now they march thru the darkness
The fire of freedom burns brught like the sun

Soldier
Fighting for liberty
With blood on your hands
You lead your command onward...to victory
Soldier
Thrashing across the seas
Mighty you stand
Defending the land
With a heart that's brave and free
Back home there's fear and hunger
Out in the streets
The desperate bleed
Out in this world there stalks a killer
Who's heart is filled with lust and greed
Soldier
Fighting for liberty
With blood on your hands
You lead your command onward...to victory
Soldier
Thrashing across the seas
Mighty you stand
Defending the land
With a heart that's brave and free
2. Destiny (4:42)
Tell me i'm crazy
I'll show you that maybe
Life is like a candle in the wind
We search for the rainbow
It seems that it won't show
But we don't worry about a thing
I'm not afraid of ever losing faith
Dreams do come true
This time the tide will turn for all to see
My dream with you

Destiny
Search for the rainbow
Endlessly - you don't know
Destinty
Seems like it won't show
Endlessly
You don't know
How many times

Right now i'll show you
The things you must go through
If you'll be kind enough to stick around
The headaches and heartdaches
Watch out for your own sake
Or you'll be buried six feet underground
I've sacrificed so much i can't turn back
Dreams do come true
I'll find a way to make it all seem clear
My dream with you

Destiny
Search for the rainbow
Endlessly - you don't know
Destinty
Seems like it won't show
Endlessly
You don't know
How many times

So head out and hold out
Except for your own doubts
There's time enough to find another way
Don't turn back or turn 'round
You'll be comming back another day
I'm not afraid of ever losing faith
Dreams do come true
This time the tide will turn for all to see
My dream with you

Destiny
Search for the rainbow
Endlessly - you don't know
Destinty
Seems like it won't show
Endlessly
You don't know
How many times
3. Burn (6:01)
[Deep Purple Coverversion]
4. In Your Eyes (4:34)
You know my heart ain't feeling right
You walk these streets again tonight
I must be strong - but it's heard when you're away
Cause i know where you're going and the games that you play
Now these streets are growing cold
A fire burns tonight where love is gold
I'm a fool to believe in the simple things you say
I can't face tomorrow ; can't face another day

In your eyes
I see a fire burning
The hands of time keep turning - how long will you be mine ?
In your eyes
I see a life tomorrow
Filled with pain and sorrow - forsaken by the lies
in your eyes

Everyday just feels the same
Loving you is such a lonely game
In the heat of the night you hear me calling out to you
Words are spoken but your eyes show the truth

In your eyes
I see a fire burning
The hands of time keep turning - how long will you be mine ?
In your eyes
I see a life tomorrow
Filled with pain and sorrow - forsaken by the lies
in your eyes
In your eyes
I see a fire burning
The hands of time keep turning - how long will you be mine ?
In your eyes
I see a life tomorrow
Filled with pain and sorrow - forsaken by the lies
in your eyes
5. Nightbreaker (4:12)
Remember what they told you
When you faced the burning sun
There was glory in your hands
You must be brave...
The mission must be done -
Or we will surely see the end
No need to fear
No danger can we find
Just turn away your face
And turn away your mind
Embrace the night
Wait for the shot to come
Don't turn your back and run

Nightbreaker
Explode in blinding light
Electric fires scorch the desert sand
Nightbreaker
Thunder in the night
Acid rain - it falls upon the land
Oh Nightbreaker

So many years have passed
But questions still remain -
If we search what will we find ?
Should we shed a tear
Or bow our hands in shame
Did we know or were we truly blind ?
Now the time has come
The power we must bind
This world will never be the same
We must be first in line
Marching out so bravely
Hero's one by one
Don't turn your back and run

Nightbreaker
Explode in blinding light
Electric fires scorch the desert sand
Nightbreaker
Thunder in the night
Acid rain - it falls upon the land
Oh Nightbreaker
Nightbreaker
Explode in blinding light
Electric fires scorch the desert sand
Nightbreaker
Thunder in the night
Acid rain - it falls upon the land
Oh Nightbreaker
6. Medicine Man (5:36)
This town has no mercy
When you're on your own
When there's no one close to you
No place to call your home
In the back alley shadows
My body yearns, the pain it grows
A needle holds the solution
Feel the sting no let it flow
A dangerous game - no place to hide
I'm looking for you to keep me satisfied

Medicine man
You hold the key - unlock the door
Like a knife in your hand
A spell that you cast for evermore

I need a shot of satisfaction
My body aches - my blood runs cold
I need a killer chain reaction
That's gonna rock me to the bone
I'm burnin' inside - i'm under the gun
You got what it takes - you know you're the one

Medicine man
You hold the key - unlock the door
Like a knife in your hand
A spell that you cast for evermore

A dangerous game - no plave to hide
I'm lookin' for you to keep me satisfied

Medicine man
You hold the key - unlock the door
Like a knife in your hand
A spell that you cast for evermore
7. Silent Scream (5:07)
Silent Screams
As they tear them apart
Take a life, sell your soul
The selfish need of a selfish heart
makes my blood run cold
In a world of selfdestruction
Where the truth is rarely seen
Next stop for the modern man
A human suicide machine
See the light in the sky
Choose to live or die
Oh the time it draws near
Stop the screams i hear
We raise our fists in anger
Don'T fool with or destiny
And silent screams are growing
We raise our fists in anger
Please stop this human tragedy
It's a cold wind that's been blowing
Reckless Hearts - Desperate souls
They pass the blame and wash their hands
Behind the walls
The blood will flow
And curse the promised land
Cry for mercy in the night
Why can'T they try and understand ?
There's no one telling them wrong from right
It's murder on demand
See the light in the sky
Choose to live or die
Oh the time it draws near
Stop the screams i hear
We raise our fists in anger
Don'T fool with or destiny
And silent screams are growing
We raise our fists in anger
Please stop this human tragedy
It's a cold wind that's been blowing
We raise our fists in anger
Don'T fool with or destiny
And silent screams are growing
We raise our fists in anger
Please stop this human tragedy
It's a cold wind that's been blowing
8. Magic Maker (5:10)
I was sittin' on top of the world
Happy as a fool could be
Now there's a dark cloud overhead
I need someone to rescue me
You're and earthshaker
Dream maker
I'm crying out for a miracle cure
I know that you're the one for sure

Take me home magic maker
Take me home magic maker

Livin' hard
Livin' under the gun
Cross me and i'll make you bleed
Never knew what the good book said
My eyes were closed i could no see
You're and earthshaker
Dream maker
I'm crying out for a miracle cure
I know the one for sure
Take me home magic maker
Take me home magic maker
Take me home magic maker
Take me home magic maker
9. I'm On The Run (4:56)
You know me you see
In your dreams so distantly
Remember what i said ?
I'll never let you go
Hold secrets deep and dark
My visions light the spark
Surrender all your fear
And take me by the hand
I've come a thousand miles
To watch you in the night
Now i won't let you go
I've got you in my sight
You feel me , you can tell
I've got you in my spell
Tonight i'll make you mine
I'll never let you go
I touch you with my eyes
You run but can not hide
I'll hold you in my hands
Then run into the night
So many times before
I've let you slip away
The time has come for more
This time i make you stay
Run
I'm on the run
Run
I'm on the run
So many times before
I've let you slip away
The time has come for more
This time i make you stay
Run
I'm on the run
Run
I'm on the run
10. Babylon (5:05)
Unlock the gates
Unlock the doors
Cyrus waits outside no more
Laughter rose
Inside the walls
In the night this time
The ancient city falls

I'm running from the storm
It can not be too long before it's gone
I'm searching for the dawn
Touch me and my soul will be reborn
I have seen babylon

Soon to come - the mystery
She'll rise above the land and sea
Babylon the great will cry
Kings will weep and
Souls will die
The clouds are are gathering today
Feel the thunder in the streets
I hear the prophets pray

I'm running from the storm
It can not be too long before it's gone
I'm searching for the dawn
Touch me and my soul will be reborn
I have seen babylon

Nations drink the fatal wine of
Intense immortal crime
Babylon will surely fall with
Judgement day upon us all
I'm running from the storm
It can not be too long before it's gone
I'm searching for the dawn
Touch me and my soul will be reborn
I'm running from the storm
It can not be too long before it's gone
I'm searching for the dawn
Touch me and my soul will be reborn
I have seen babylon
11. Outlaw (6:14)
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
