Land of Broken Hearts Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Running Wild (5:09)
I'm just a number, I don't know my name.
Unknown faces a part of the game.
Out in the desert the madness begins,
Who's talkin' mercy? We're playin' to win...

Better run around, there's no easy way out,
If you loose - take a stand,
So do whatever you can - again and again.

Running wild like creature of the night,
We're born to run - we never trust the light.
Running wild, we're so afraid to try,
We're all alone and everyone is blind,
Running wild...

You'll start the fire and livin' on a lie,
Rats get fat while good men die.
They got you running to follow the track,
You'll face the trouble with fear on the back...
2. Easy Rider (4:59)
Somebody's gonna win,
One of a million, one of a kind,
So tell me it's a sin,
I'm pushin' it up and crossin' the line.

Nobody's gonna run, Nobody's gonna hide,
So if you lookin' for trouble - you'd better
Stand up and find!

Easy Rider - takin' it day by day,
Easy Rider - drinkin' the night away.
Easy Rider - livin' it day by day,
Easy Rider - trouble is on its way.

Since I was a kid,
Never looked back, never slowed down,
Ridin' down the street,
Lookin' for one way ticket to the promised land.
3. Flight (4:00)
Eye's of the night, keepin' me right,
Engine is roarin' like hell.
Wings on my side, shakes off the light,
Ready to go - I can tell.

You better sit upright or you fall down,
No one's gonna help you miles around.
There's no place for tears or fear of heights,
Nothing - just the thunder of flights.

Fly forever and try cross over the sky -
Feelin' the wind blow.
Cry for losers who died,
They watchin' you fly - over the rainbow.

Scary how fast, you're down in the dust,
Watchin' the sign in the sky.
Kill or get killed, glory and thrill
Waitin' for one who'll survive.

I had a dream last night and I say you burn.
Right on the edge of the point of no return,
No more excuses and no more comin' back,
Light from the suns turnin' black.
4. Age Gone Wild (4:32)
All I need is to turn the page,
I can see a man - he's twice my age.
Proud face, a lot of scars,
I can see a shadow of the bars...

Hold on - can you feel the sorrow,
Hold on - he won't see tomorrow...

Yes, he was proud as hell to the end of the line,
So he's got a story to tell of the age gone wild.
The magic and the spell, an eye for an eye,
Now, he's got a story to tell of the age gone wild...

Just a kid but he was told,
He will be the one to rule the world.
Such a shame - with speed of light,
He become a beggar over over night.
5. Martial Arts (1:52)
[Instrumental by Andre Anderson.]
6. One By One (4:34)
I've always been the perfect man for fightin',
I've always been the one who'd never lose.
Get up'n'play - it used to be exciting,
A chance to win - but there's no excuse.
But now I feel I've spent my life for nothing,
No chances left - confusions like a rain.
One step ahead won't help - I'm loosin' something.
Another victory will bring another pain...

And I feel like a stranger - lost and found,
In the heat of the danger - another time around.

One by one - we're fallin' on the burnin' ground.
One by one - keep movin' round'n'round.
One by one - just fallin' like shootin' stars.
One by one - we'll just rust behind the bars...

I'm on track, no matter how I'm movin'
From light to light - another dusty place.
No one around - aware of what you're doin',
Forgotten hero - an unknown face.
Straight through the heart - no pain, cos there's nothing.

Back to the past - just injuries insight,
No way to stop - watch out, cos' evil laughin',
No use screamin' - it's sinkin in the night.

Take a look in the mirror - see if you're blind,
Keep chasin' the hero - in another time...
7. Heart Of The City (3:43)
Can't see no changes, I wanna be free,
I'm a bird on a wire.
My blood is boilin' it's burnin' in me,
Overkill by fire.

Sun goes down and full moon rising,
Chasin' evil shadows in town.

Just like a junkie, I can't see a thing,
Feelin' the chill that surrounds me.

I can't get out cos I'm trapped in the ring,
Something's comin' to haunt me.

Set me free - don't even try to put a chain on me,
Page was a turn - you're gonna learn,
Right in the heart of the city.

Another kid from downtown - you see,
Born to live in the sorrow.
I owe you nothing and that's how it is gonna be,
By the morning - it's over.
8. Land Of Broken Hearts (4:41)
See a thousand bodies crackin'n'fallin' back,
Rows of loaded weapon ready to attack.
Sharp pain screams like hell in a victim's eyes.
Wanna say to everyone - promises were lies...

And here we go again, back to back,
Round and round,
And here we go again, back to back,
One shot, buddy, and you're hitting the ground...

Land of broken hearts.

One more shot and another friend's gone.
Land of broken hearts,
Pray to your god, cos' the killing's begun.

See a million faces - can you let it go?
Try to stop this bloody rain paintin' on the snow.
Blood, death - all around - livin' on the edge,
Look smashed flesh -
And bones prayin' for revenge.
9. Freeway Jam (1:32)
[Instrumental by Andre Anderson]
10. Kingdom Dark (4:28)
Run, you better run as far as you can,
Why - I'm gonna die and nobody cares.

Stop wastin' my time, I'm gonna fly high,
You'll find out, the way to survive -
Follow the light tonight!

Watch your steps, it's Kingdom Dark,
There is fear behind your back.
Help me out or let me in,
Watch me die for someone's sin.

Out, somebody shouts, but who - I can't see,
Age, blesses to the rage, callin' for me...
11. Stranded (bonus track) (4:41)
I see a face in the night,
Why do I feel I'm in danger?
Image of me get pushed to the side,
Just by the eyes of the stranger.

Anyway, all the faces I've seen,
Over and over again,
Everytime, when the sun goes down,
Act the same - just the same.

Stranded - so far away from home,
Stranded - I've made, it happen all alone.
Stranded - so far away from home,
Stranded - in the eyes of the storm...
(it's written all across the wall)

Open it up, turn it up - wild!
Can you just give me a reason?
Livin' it up, give it up, walkin' up blind -
Leavin' yourself in a prison.

Anyway, all the places I've been.
Over and over again,
Everytime, when the lights goin' down,
Looks the same - over and over again.
Keep your head above the ground -
Trouble wants you to drown.

Don't get pushed and kicked around,
Don't let them put you down.
Someone's like to see you fall -
Tear the sucker down!
Let the whole world crash and burn -
Keep your head above the ground.
12. Day In Day Out (bonus track) (3:21)
Another fight - another story.
I cannot choose, I'm always playin too much.
Days runs to night, turns off the glory.
Somebody's looses, somebody looks out of touch.

The colors are dark, but I hope to get luck on my side,
My sprit lost - I'm cry my heart out.
10 000 years have passed and what have we learned?
We're doin' worse - illusion's all 'round -
My life's the same as many lifetimes ago...

Day in, day out - I'll be alright,
Day in, day out - I feel like shoutin' it out.

I'm stranger in town, tryin' to make some connections,
My future and past are desperate wreck.
I'm starin' at mirrors and my my own reflection,
So rashly and slowly stickin' a knife in my back...
