Edge of the World Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Unknown Soldier (1:20)
They came for me at night
When I couldn't stand the pain
Sent me at first light
I was never seen again
They told so many lies
Which I never could explain
A few good men must die I know
A sacrifice I made
But that's ok
Until they put me in an unknown grave
And the men that put me there
Took my name away
2. Friendly Fire (5:31)
Oh so young and far from home
They only get one life
They were told it's just a game
There woul dbe no need to fight

Seemed quite real though yesterday
When we got blown away
By friendly fire

Giving orders from afar
They're safe and sound who cares
If a few lives are expendable
As long as its' not theirs

Wonder would they say the same
If they got blown away
By friendly fire
By friendly fire

Sending back photographs of war
I thought you might need some of that
To remind you of what it is like
To be on the other side of
Friendly fire

They turn & look away
As if they always knew
That all their empty words
Can't eclipse the truth - that's okay
Even if they'll never take the blame
At least put me to rest
Give me back my name

I wonder if they'd stillagree
To risk their life expectancy
If they'd been standing next to me
And blown away by friendly fire

By friendly fire
3. The Holy Man (5:00)
The holy man's coming
Knocking on my door
Don't let him in
I committed no sin
I don't need no help at all

The holy man's come in
Stepped into my room
Turned on the light
In the middle of the night
He said god will see me soon
He's telling me that heaven waits
And this is where I'll go
The doctor said I will not die
There's something I don't know

Too young to die
Don't ask me why
The holy man's coming in
Somebody better help me

The holy man's come in
Standing by my bed
He seems in a hurry
So don't tell me not to worry
I must be close to dead

Holy man

The holy man's coming
Can anybody hear
He stinks of gin - I didn't ask him in
Somebody get him out of here
He put his hands upon my head
The time has come he said
I hate to break the news
He's a bit confused
I'm not quite ready yet

Got a cross in his hand
I don't understand
The holy man's coming
Somebody better help me

The holy man's come in
Standing by my bed
He seems in a hurry
Don't tell me not to worry
I must be close to dead

Said I won't make it
Through the night
Said I won't see the morning light

There's a man in the next room worse than me
So what the hell's he doing in here with me

The holy man's coming
Praying for my soul
I tried to let him know
He can have it if he'll go
And leave me alone

The holy man's coming
Kneeling by my bed
The holy man's coming
Don't tell me not to worry
I must be close to dead
4. Never Say Die (4:47)
You can be immortal
You can carve your name on the edge of time
You can live forever
Never say die

You can be immortal
You can be around till the end of time
You can make your lifetime
One of a kind

Too many stars that never shine
Too many crash and burn
Too many ships that sank in the night
And never sail again

You can re-write history
In a thousand years they'll still say your name
And the unbelievers
You can blow away

Too many stars that never shine
Too many crash and burn
Too many ships that sank in the night
And never sail again

But I'm going to live
Till the end of time
I can walk through fire
And never say die

You can be immortal
You can carve your name on the edge of time
You can live forever
Never say die

But I'm going to live -till the end of time
I can walk through fire
And never say die

I'm going to live for the rest of time
I can walk on water
'cause I never say die

I can walk through the gates of hell
I spit fire and I live to tell

I can fly can't you see
I'm going to be around - be around
Forever - I'm never going to die
I can be immortal
And never say die

I'm going to live for the rest of time
I can be immortal
And never say die
5. Resolution (6:50)
We didn't start it
Or firearm it
Better call in the U.N. to disarm it
Ceasefire
Tell the snipers
Cause you're dealing with a bunch of fucking liars
Streetfighter
Outsider
But they're never going to take it from us
We believe it
'cause you dream it
One day you'll realise we mean it

Oh! in the night, when the wind and rain
Puts out the flame
The morning sun warms up the blood
And the candle burns again

My resolution is getting strong
I feel so good now I know where I am going
My resolution gives me the power
To get back on my feet when they knock me to the ground

Unify it, don't try it
Just another sell and we won't buy it
Peace treaties are in pieces
You can see it everyday on the tv
They fly around and say they're making cround
But put your money on another breakdown
The real war is right here with us
And it's going to go on and on and on

Oh! in the night when the wind and rain
Puts out the flame
The morning sun warms up the blood
And the candle burns again

My resolution
Is getting strong
I suddenly believe in what I'm doing
My resolution won't go away
I feel it growing stonger everyday

On our way
To change the course of history & time
We shall try
To reach inside and find a strength of mind
Who wants war?

Oh! in the night when the wind and rain
Puts out the flame
The morning sun warms up the blood
And the candle burns again

My resolution is getting strong
I suddenly believe in what I'm doing
My resolution gives me the power
To get back on my feet when they kick me to the ground
My resolution won't go away
I feel it growing stronger day by day
My resolution will never die
My contribution could be my life
6. Searching (4:40)
When I was young and alive
Just looking for ways to survive
I never did quite realise
How time eats away at your life

Now I am older for sure
And close to the end of it all
So I reflect with hindsight
Sitting alone every night

And I was desperate to find
The things I have here by my side
Now that I've let it all go
I cry for the children so

And I've spent all my life
Searching for nothing
And I've wasted my time
To end up with nothing

And I tried so hard to understand
The yearnings of a younger man
I know that I would change my plans
If I could take my time again

When I was young and alive
Just looking for ways to survive
I never did quite realise
How time eats away at your life

I have spent all my life
Searching for nothing
And I wasted my time
And it's all come to nothing
When I was young and alive
I needed nothing
Now I am ready to die
I've still got nothing
7. Give Blood (3:53)
Give blood
I want blood

Nobody moves me the way you do
I hear your sycophants tell you
Same old stories might have known
Your deception meets an all time low

Oh! this time your crimes
Finally caught up with you
Oh! you bet you'll get
Everything coming to you

[Chorus:]
Don't ask me show pity
As if I would
I want blood

You can scream or plead for mercy
It's not enough
Give blood

Well stick around
It could be fun
I got the bullets
You got the gun
They pull the trigger
When I explain
Vengeance is beautiful
Such a shame

Escape too late
Let's see what you're gonna do
Oh! witness your grip
Loosen as they turn on you

Don't ask me to show pity
As if I would
I want blood
You can scream and plead for mercy
It's not enough give blood

Oh! I'll break down your door
Give blood

Oh! I'm gonna get to you
Don't you remember my name
I'm sure it will come to you

Escape too late
Let's see what you're going to do
You cna bet you'll get
Everything coming to you

[Chorus]

I'm only mortal
But I will force you to
Kick down the doors until
You give blood

Revenge is sweet enough
But nowhere near enough
I want back what you took
Give blood

I want blood
Oh! when I could I would
Give blood

I want back what you took
I want blood
8. Crime of Passion (5:17)
In my dreams
I don't feel pain
Only when I wake up again
Seems to me it's such a shame
One crime of passion
Had to take the blame

I can see yet I am blind
And now I have to leave this world behind

The sun's gone down
For one last time
When morning comes
I'll pay a terrible price
Remember me
For what it was like
The sun's gone down
On my life

Can you see a blood red sun
Can you smell
Smoke from a gun
Do you recall
What words were said
We had to listen
Well we won't again

As the night goes by I find I'm running out of time
They will not even let me say goodbye

The sun's gone down
For one last time
When morning comes
I'll pay a terrible price
Remember me
And what it was like
The sun's gone down
One last time

I can see yet I was blind
And now I have to leave this world behind

The suns gone down
For one last time
When morning comes
I'll pay a terrible price
Remember me for what it was like
The sun's gone down on my life
9. Walls Cave In (4:35)
They pound their fists
Upon your door
They want your blood
And you know what for

You tried to say
You got suckered in
Each new excuse
Is wearing thin

Suddenly out of the blue
You changed your colours now
Look at you

You don't talk so loud
Now your luck's run out
You got to the top and
There's no way down

Oh! you better stay alive
But you are running out of time

Just when you think you'll win
Well think again - the walls cave in
Oh! you thought you'd won the fight
And then - the walls cave in

Just you and me
And me and you
Face to face
Are gonna see it though

You're gonna choke and they broke your will
And their moving in now
They sense a kill

Your gonna lose
You got it wrong
So don't pretend to sing
A different song

You're under attack
And the odds are stacked
And there's no escape
There's no way back

You're always gonna lose
Too late - you had your chance to choose

Just when you think you'll win
Well think again - the walls cave in
Oh! you're gonna pay the price
And it's down to just me and you

Oh! the bigger that you are
They say the harder that you fall

Just when you think you'll win
Well think again
The walls cave in

When you got a grip on victory
Just let it slip
Just as you think that you
Will take the prize
You always lose
Oh! when you think that you will win
The walls cave in
10. Edge of the World (5:39)
Have you ever been
Very near to where
The beams of the sun meet the atmosphere

Have you ever flown
Through the frozen spray
Of niagra falls on a winter's day

Have you ever swum
Where the sea turns black
And been in danger from a shark attack

Have you ever been on the brink of death
But returned to tell
What others guess

If you think these things absurd
You've never been to the edge of the world

I have been there
I have searched
And I found what I'm looking for - at the edge of the world
I have wondered
'cause I heard
You can find what you're looking for - at the edge of the world

Have you ever seen
Through an eagles eye
A total eclipse from way up high

Have you ever come across
A lost empire
Or walked the desert for a thousand miles

Have you ever stood on mount everest
Left your footprints there
Did you pass that test

Have you ever past close to the gates of hell
Have you walked that road
Yes I know it well

If you don't believe a word
You've never been to the edge of the world

I have seen this
I have searched
I have found what I'm looking for
At the edge of the world

I have wondered
'cause I heard
You can find what you're looking for
At the edge of the earth

Have you ever tried to find
The inside of your mind
Crossed to the other side
And spoke with other kinds

Have you been there
Have you searched
'cause you can find what you're looking for
At the edge of the... earth

Have you wandered
Far and wide
You can live out all your dreams
If you only try

I have been there
I have searched
And I found what I'm looking for - at the edge of the world

I have wondered
'cause I heard
You can find what you're looking for
At the edge of the world
11. Stronger Than the Drug (5:18)
Sent me to see if I can do some good
'cause you can depend on it
To poison your blood
Pay with your life
You disagree
Nothing comes easy
Nothing is free

Oh! my life
Such a cold, cold night

Don't let me down
Don't do it this time
Got enough reasons
Still got enough time
Wasting away
Got to come through
Nothing achieved
Yet still got
So much to do

All my life
Living through a cold, cold night
Just like you
I've got too much to lose

Had enough
Lord above
Keep telling me
I'm stronger than the drug

Saw a light shine
From above and I
Knew right away
I'm stronger than the drug

Got to get away
Where there's a will there's a way
And it bothers me
The state you're in
Wasted dreams

And I know it's true
You live a lie
Just look at you

And I can't explain
The way I feel
The change is strange

I've had enough
Lord above
Keep telling me
I'm stronger than the drug

Saw a light shine
From above and I
Knew that I'me
Stronger than the drug

You will lose
Have to say
That you came from nowhere
Got back that way

I refuse to
Just because you do
I've had enough
Say
I'm stronger than the drug

Say it
Say it
Say it

Stronger than the drug

Stronger than the drug

Stronger than the drug

Stronger than the drug

Say it
