Sweet Dreams Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level LightListener
1. Sweet Dreams (5:08)
In my times of loneliness I'm wondering
What came over me the sight of the light
My life's a nightmare every time I open my eyes
It makes me wanna fall to sleep blinded by the morning sun

Chorus:

Sweet dream lonely night
Sweet dream another lonely night, so lonely

Take the past it's just a dream
Reality is present and fiction's not clear
Take my hand I'll show you the way
I don't care if I'm wrong or right
As long as I set my sweet dreams tonight

Chorus

In my life I feel despair every day but you can't see
My eyes filling with tears
Broken dreams from an endless night
Reborn from the ashes of a previous life

Chorus
2. The Trouble Is (3:35)
People are lying they keep on trying
To live where they can be free
They jam into boats with a knife at their throats
It's a problem for you not for me

The trouble is politicians rule with an iron hand
The trouble is the threat's alive among the living and the dead

Children are crying people are starving
We say we're helpless it's their destiny
Countdown to disaster before and after
Is all the same but with a different name and that's all

The trouble is black and white are turning into grey
The trouble is it's getting hard just to get the time of day

I get up at night and I can't find the light
As I stumble in total darkness I'm writing this song
To point the finger at what's wrong
But words of wisdom seem to escape me

The trouble is you got no right to tell us right from wrong
The trouble is it's just too bad if you don't like this song
The trouble is you politicians can't understand
The trouble is that we the people will fight 'till the end
3. Land of the Brave (5:28)
Sent out to war in the middle of nowhere
Licensed to kill and a long way from home

War slaughters the earth
War you're sent to the front
And your life is fading away
There's no coming back so prepare for the final attack

This child unborn holds a terrible curse
Where time stands still he's a soldier at work

War slaughters the heart
War sent to the front
And your life is fading away
There's no coming back you'll die in the land of the brave
In the land of the brave it's the land of the grave

And now the end has become part of us
The earth is black and the battle is lost

War surrenders the earth
War sent to the front
And your life is fading away
There's no coming back we all die in the land of the brave
It's the land of the grave
No coming back so prepare for the final attack
4. Back Off (3:53)
They say they have come to save the world
Maybe they will I'll bet you they won't
They carry a crucifix deceiving the weak delivering the wrong

Chorus:

Back off preacher stay away
Don't you know hell is to pay
Back off don't hang around here no more
Back off you got wicked ways with law

The devil sells you ever more
And you will give and they will take
Until you're old enough to die

Chorus

You know my brother you have sinned
But it's alright you're old and you're wise
From the beginning 'till the end your truth is a lie
Your fate is in the sky

Back off preacher stay away
Don't you know hell is to pay
We don't need your stupid lies
Don't victimize us, stop

Back off don't hang around here no more
Back off you got wicked ways with law
5. Prepare to Die (2:58)
I've been wondering why when I look to the sky
Everything seems to be fading
And the feeling I get when I try to forget
All of those things will drive me mad

Chorus:

Close your eyes you will see you've got no choice just let it be
And rise above the earth and sky fall into the abyss of night
Prepare to die

Every day of my life is a long endless night
Fear of the dark will make me scream
This nightmare will end when my time is close at hand
Thy spirit of death will make me rise

Chorus

There's a beast in my dream and it's pointing right at me
Got an evil stare into its eyes
Makes me lose my mind I hope that someday I will find
The perfect time for me to leave

Chorus
6. Caught in the Act (4:09)
You've got the right to remain silent
But anything you do and say will be held against you
You've got the time to do some thinking boy
You know you have been caught in the act
Breaking the rules

And now they'll break you no one will save you
Rot in your cell. It's a living nightmare and you better beware
Cause one day you'll wish you were dead

It's hard to be free when our sick society is caught in the act
You're breaking the rules and you're living like a fool
Who's caught in a trap

They build the wall around the prisoner
And lock the door then throw away the key
Confined in darkness 'till the sunrise
You're a victim of your crime criminal in your mind

And now they'll break you no one will save you
Rot in your cell. It's a living nightmare you were warned to beware
And now you wish you were dead

It's hard to be free when our sick society is caught in the act
You're breaking the rules and you're living like a fool
Who's caught in the act

You live a life of no tomorrow
And build your dreams with hatred and revenge
So many years will go behind you
You're a king without a throne a drifter on your own

No one will break you no one will touch you
You'll break by yourself
You're a living nightmare we were warned to beware
And now that you wish you were dead

It's hard to be free when our sick society is caught in the act
You're breaking the rules you're living like a fool
You're caught in a trap
Don't try to understand, run away, run away
7. Until Death Do Us Part (3:36)
A time to live a time to die
And one to cherish your precious life
One chance to win you're born to lose
One day you're going to pay

Pay with the days of your life
Pray until death do us part

You laugh about eternal life
The secrecy you believe in
Afraid to run don't look behind
You can't escape from yourself, no way

So ride with your fears in your heart
And pray until death do us part
Fear's in your heart 'till death do us part

You hear the sound of a distant scream
The voice of heaven is calling
Dark as the night you're cold as ice
And now you shall rest in peace
Ride through the deep of the night
And pray until death do us part
8. The Threat (4:10)
Look in the dark through the eyes of the night
Tell me what do you see?
Are you afraid for your life well I am and it's blackening me
I see a face in the night a voice is shouting my name
Shadows of the past are recalling me, set me free

Ride with the sword in your hand
And some day with the sword you will die
Live the blade of the damned but never return, no never

I see a face in the night and now you're shouting my name
Shadows of past are returning
I feel a threat for my life it's like the scream in the night
I am a threat for your life I'm a scream in the night

So listen to me when I ask you today
Will the past make us strong
Are we just learning to die are we learning to crawl as we fall

I am the face in the night and now I'm shouting your name
Shadows of past are recalling
Pointing at you and now you're down on your knees
You're praying god to believe that life and death are eternal
You crawl
9. Life on the Sharp Edge (4:44)
I'd like to set the record straight I ain't got time to waste
So don't even try to reform me
From the beginning I was never a child
Had to fight my way I was hardly alive
Day after day I couldn't turn away

Chorus:

Don't ever try to change what you can't understand
Live your life on the sharp edge

I can see the light of day and glory may cross my way
It's a hard life to live and to love
But I guess you know that from the first day
I was bound to win I ain't a loser
I'm willing to sin, nothing can stop me
Aiming for the top of the world

Chorus

I don't believe in written laws
Why should we try to equal god
There's a beast within each and everyone
So when you come across the likes of me you better stay out of trouble
I ain't got what you need leave me alone
Never say never again
10. State of Shock (3:44)
All day long I'm pushed around I just can't take this shoving anymore
Life ain't fun when passion is none day passes by so very slow

State of shock breaks apart my sanity to pieces
Makes me feel so unreal got me in a barrelhouse
State of shock

The same old story happens every day
A dream comes by and then... ah take it away
It makes me realize that more is maybe less
And number one's the best fuck all the rest

State of shock breaks apart my sanity to pieces
Makes me feel so unreal got me in a barrelhouse
State of shock

Hey where is everybody goin?

I'll tell you once then again I'll tell you twice
This state of mind won't take us to paradise
So turn on the power keep it for yourself
One must learn to live in self defense
