The Covering Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Set Me Free (Sweet) (3:45)
[originally by Sweet]

Gagged, ball and chained
Feel just the same
Heads on the wall
Maybe you're just playing games
Set me free
Mauled by a hound
Hangin' around
Is this for real
I don't know when I'll be found
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from you

Taken by force
By you of course
Far from my bed
I know I'd rather be dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from you

Fire in my brain
Burn me insane
Making your mark
Don't leave me here in the dark
Set me free
Call me a saint
That's what I ain't
Inside my head
Maybe I'll feel better dead
Set me free

Set me free
Set me free - from you
2. Blackout (Scorpions) (3:57)
[originally by Scorpions]

I realize I missed a day
But I'm too wrecked to care anyway
I look around and see this face
What the hell have I lost my taste

Don't want to find out
Just want to cut out

My head explodes, my ears ring
I can't remember just where I've been
The last thing that I recall
I got lost in a deep black hole

Don't want to find out
Just want to cut out

Blackout
I really had a Blackout

I grab my things and make a run
On my way out, another one
Would like to know before I stop
Did I make it or did I flop

Don't want to find out
Just want to get out

Blackout
I really had a Blackout

Don't want to find out
Just want to get out

Blackout
I really had a Blackout
3. Heaven and Hell (Black Sabbath) (6:13)
[originally by Black Sabbath]

Sing me a song, you're a singer
Do me a wrong, you're a bringer of evil
The devil is never a maker
The less that you give, you're a taker
So it's on and on and on, it's heaven and hell
Oh well

The lover of life's not a sinner
The ending is just a beginner
The closer you get to the meaning
The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming
So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and Hell
I can tell
Fool, fool

Oh uh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Well if it seems to be real, it's illusion
For every moment of truth, there's confusion in life
Love can be seen as the answer, but nobody bleeds for the dancer
And it's on and on, on and on and on and on and on and on and on

They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of kings and queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It's heaven and hell, oh well

And they'll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
It's heaven and hell, oh no

Fool, fool
You've got to bleed for the dancer
Fool, fool
Look for the answer
Fool, fool, fool
4. Light's Out (UFO) (3:44)
[originally by UFO]

Wind blows back and the batons charging
It winds all the way
Right to the butt of my gun
Maybe now your time has come

From the back streets there’s a rumblin’

Smell of anarchy
No more nice time, bright boy shoe shines
Pie in the sky dreams

[*] Lights out, lights out in London
Hold ’em tight ’til the end
Better now you know we’ll never
Wait ’til tomorrow
Lights out, lights out in London
Hold ’em tight ’til the end
God knows when I’m comin’ on (my) run

Heaven help those who help themselves
That’s the way it goes
The frightening thoughts of what’s been taught
And now it shows

[* repeat]

[instrumental]

[* repeat]

You keep comin’, there’s no runnin’
Tried a thousand times
Under your feet grass is growin’
Time we said goodbye

[* repeat]

Lights out, lights out in London

Lights out, lights out in London
5. Carry On Wayward Son (Kansas) (5:15)
[originally by Kansas]

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher
But I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming
I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man, well
It surely means that I don't know

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed around like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more, No!

Carry on, you will always remember
Carry on, nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty
Surely heaven waits for you

Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry
Don't you cry no more!

No more!
6. Highway Star (Deep Purple) (5:44)
[originally by Deep Purple]

Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car, it's gonna break the speed of sound
Oh, it's a killing machine,it's got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires everything

I love it and I need it I bleed it
Yeah it's a wild hurricane
Alright, hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my girl I'm gonna keep her to the end
Nobody gonna have my girl she stays close on every bend
Oh, she's a killing machine, she's got everything
Like a moving mouth, body control and everything

I love her, I need her, I seed her
Yeah, she turns me on
Alright, hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my head I got speed inside my brain
Nobody gonna steal my head now that I'm on the road again
Oh, I'm in heaven again, I've got everything
Like a moving ground, throttle control and everything

I love it, I need it, I seed it
Eight cylinders all mine
Alright, hold tight, I'm a highway star

Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground
Nobody gonna beat my car, it's gonna break the speed of sound
Oh, it's a killing machine, it's got everything
Like a driving power big fat tires everything

I love it and I need it I bleed it
Yeah, it's a wild hurricane
Alright, hold tight, I'm a highway star

[2x]
I'm a highway star
7. Shout It Out Loud (KISS) (3:14)
[originally by KISS]

Well, the night's begun and you want some fun
Do you think you're gonna find it (think you're gonna find it)
You got to treat yourself like number one
Do you need to be reminded (need to be reminded)
It doesn't matter what you do or say
Just forget the things that you've been told
We can't do it any other way
Everybody's got to rock and roll, whoo, oh, oh

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud

If you don't feel good, there's a way you could
Don't sit there broken hearted (sit there broken hearted)
Call all your friends in the neighborhood
And get the party started (get the party started)

Don't let 'em tell you that there's too much noise
They're too old to really understand
You'll still get rowdy with the girls and boys
'Cause it's time for you to take a stand, yeah, yeah

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
You've got to have a party
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Turn it up louder
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Everybody shout it now
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Oh yeah
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
Hear it gettin' louder
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
And everybody shout it now
Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud
8. Over The Mountain (Ozzy Osbourne) (4:20)
[originally by Ozzy Osbourne]

Over the mountain, take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d'ya think I wandered to
I've seen life's magic astral plane I travel through

I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how

Over and over, always tried to get away
Living in a daydream, only place I had to stay
Fever of a breakout burning in me miles wide
People around me talking to the walls inside

I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how

Don't need no astrology, it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to fly with me, I'm free, yeah

Over and under, in between the ups and downs
Mind on a carpet, magic ride goes 'round and round
Over the mountain, kissing silver inlaid clouds
Watching my body disappear into the crowd

Don't need no astrology, it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to fly with me, I'm free, yeah
9. The Trooper (Iron Maiden) (3:52)
[originally by Iron Maiden]

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand, there's no turning back
The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race toward the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall
We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below
And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
10. Breaking The Law (Judas Priest) (3:01)
[originally by Judas Priest]

There I was completely wasting
Out of work and down
All inside it's so frustrating
As I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares
If I live or die
So I might as well begin
To put some action in my life

Breaking the law, breaking the law

So much for the golden future
I can't even start
I've had every promise broken
And there's anger in my heart
You don't know what it's like
You don't have a clue
If you did you'd find yourselves
Doing the same thing too

Breaking the law, breaking the law

You don't know what it's like
11. On Fire (Van Halen) (3:07)
[originally by Van Halen]

Turn your radios on
I'll appear right there! Yes I will
Turn me up real loud
I'm in your, ears!
Now I'm hanging ten now baby
As I ride your sonic, ooh-wave
(Owwwwwwww!)

Good, God y'all
I'm on fire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire

Oh yeah!
One time!

Fire!
Fire!
Fire!

[Guitar Solo]

Ow!
Woo!
Ahhh!
Ah-ha!

Ooo!
Ooo!

Lay your bodies down
I'm in your beds. Your beds
Throw your headphones on
I'm in your heads! Ah-ha!

Now I'm hangin' ten now baby
As I ride your sonic, oo-wave
(Ahhhhhhhhhhh!)

Good God y'all

I'm on fire
I'm on fire
I'm on fire (Ow!)
I'm on fire (Woo! Woo!)
I'm on fire (Woo! Woo!)
I'm on fire (Wooooooo!)
I'm on fire
I'm on fire (Wooooooo!)
I'm on fire
I'm on fire (Ow!)
I'm on fire (Ah!)
I'm on fire (Ah!)
12. Immigrant Song (Led Zeppelin) (2:17)
[originally by Led Zeppelin]

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.
13. God (4:54)
Oh, oh, oh, oh!

Hearts are weeping, soul’s are keeping on ice
Spirits dying, wickedness won’t suffice
Those who cared, they stop and stare at the wall
Doing nothing, watching prisoners fall

The sun is falling from the sky
The earth is cold and still

[Chorus]

God - have mercy on us
For we know not what we do
God – dark and blinded, we are burning
Without You – God!

Yeah, oh, oh!

Without conscience, without warning at all
We kill the wounded, crushing those who crawl
Can’t we see that life, is hung by a thread
In the end our flesh is buried and dead

Mountains crumble, rivers swell
The tide is taking all

[Repeat chorus]
