Thunderball Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Thunderball (3:53)
I ate the moon for breakfast
I had the sun for tea
I opened up the papers
And drank the oval sea

I beat the holy armies
I claimed my own terrain
I forced away the darkness
And cauterised my pain

I'll live my dreams - and I'll have it all
All in the day and the night
Time after time - I never go wrong
Watch out - you better hold tight

Ride the thunderball
The thunderball
Ride the thunderball
The thunderball

I walked upon the desert
And scaled the mountains high
Gave water to the rivers
And painted up the sky

I've played with all the planets
Took life away from Mars
And all my magic power
Gave light to all the stars

Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - read the book of lies
Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - the shock of life

Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - do you believe
Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - have the ride of your life

Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - believe in lies
Ride the thunderball
The thunderball - between the lines
2. The Arbiter (4:07)
We lie and cheat the game
Corruption's everywhere
We try to buy our justice
Lies are hard to beat

When our days are over
Cross the great divide
The final day is coming
He knows wrong from right

Cut out the way it has been done
Just keep the fear inside
Nowhere to hide nowhere to run
Your life is on the line

Take the word of the arbiter
He always gets it right
Take the word of the arbiter
If it's left or if it's right

With him there's no objection
You can't have a deal
The word he says is final
Punishment's for real

Talking - never moves
You hear it in your head
Body shaken terror
And he cuts you dead

Take the word of the arbiter
His word s always right
Take the word of the arbiter
Nothing left and nothing right
3. Pull The Trigger (4:34)
Call up the guns
Beat on the drums
Join the hell

Grey magazines
Evil machines
Zero two ten

Eighty-eight millimetre mortal rounds
AK 47's make a hell of a sound
Rolling thunder's gonna get the better of you
If you wanna get ahead and win the hearts and minds

You gotta pull - pull - pull - pull the trigger
Fire your guns
You gotta pull - pull - pull - pull the trigger
Fire your guns

Pick up the phone
Start up the drones
Radio base

Head outta town
On enemy ground
Nothing to tell

Chain of command
News on demand
Security leaks

Innocent lives
Desperate lies
Deny all reports
4. Fistful Of Anger (3:11)
Terror from the tower
Panic in the streets
A gun full of surprises
The special of the week

The wailing of the sirens
Multiple alarms
The screaming of the bullhorns
God bless the right to arm

The finger on the trigger
The target in the sights

And you will remember
Death comes day or right

I got a fistful of anger
A head full of pain
Belt full of bullets
Switchblade insane

My shelter on the rooftop
Up there in the blue
I hear a voice inside me
And who the fuck are you
5. The Land Of Midnight Sun (5:18)
Enter the land of the iceman
A place where the sun never sets
Where the vains of the land are strong and crystal clear
Under the spell of darkness
The roots of the land grow deep
And the sight of the eagle soaring on the wing

Eternal nation - for evermore
A proud creation - what we're fighting for

When you're riding the sky so high
Immortal, wild and free
Cast your eyes to the far and near
Over oceans never seen

When you're riding the sky so high
Your glory will be done
And your hearts are open wide
In the land of the midnight sun

The whispering sound of the mountains
The howling of the seas
If you listen very closely you will hear

Stand by the stones of the shadows
In a kingdom cold and white
Where the halls of the Gods are lit by a million suns
6. Hell Bites Back (3:09)
Hell bites back
Hell bites back

You'll do the time
And that's a fact
Your lesson has begun

No prison life
Can offer back
You gotta walk the line to come

Now comes the time when the payment is due
Now it's the time to go on

I know that
Hell bites back
Hell bites back

It may be right
It may be wrong
When they close your door

You'll hate the day
And fear the night
You gave the finger to the law

Never surrender - cover your back
Nothing to stop a stab in the back
Never give in - never give out
Better be good - never get out
7. Trainride In Russia (4:45)
[Russian:]
Поезд по России - идёт и идёт
Поезд по России - сто грамм и вперёд
Перестук колёс - необьятна даль
Поезд нас унёс - к началу всех начал

Here I tell my story
Believe what I have seen
And nothing had prepared us
The welcome we received

Coming back from Kazakhstan
The gear has not arrived
The fans geared up and ready
We rocked them for their lives

[Chorus:]
Trainride in Russia - Again and Again
Trainride in Russia - Nastrovje man to man
The rolling of the wheels
The distance of the land
Trainride in Russia - That's where it all began

With Igor and with Fitty
Naked in the car
Shouting at each other
Who the fuck's the Tsar

Swetlana was a darling
Her face will never fade
She made Lorenzo happy
Showed him the Russian way

[Chorus]

And our crew was blinded
A challenge they did raise
The Russian guys were ready
And won the vodka race

When drinking with the pilots
A Southern Comfort round
Then Stefan's fear of flying
Came crashing to the ground

[Chorus]

Parading for their victory
Army, Air and Corps
Looking up the building
Where Udo was the star

And when the tour is over
We're never quite the same
Already miss our comrades
Until we meet again

[Chorus]
8. The Bullet And The Bomb (3:58)
Mortui te salutant
Mortui te salutant

In days gone by - the Chinese man
As wise as he was old
Did formulate the concentrate
The world would now explode

The cannonball - the rifle shot
The forces we unfold
We devastate and terminate
A triumph - we are told

Who can tell - break the spell
Reign in hell - when you're messing with

The bullet and the bomb
The bullet and the bomb

The race was on - the will to kill
When science joined the game
Unmerciful and finally
It all became insane

In forty-five - catastrophe
In Oppenheimer's mind
And man did see the universe
Atomically collide
9. The Magic Mirror (4:56)
God have the Ten Commandments
Moses passed them all
A look at Jesus' blessings
The sun belonged to Ra

Nero played with fire
Caesar was a laugh
The beauty Cleopatra
Ramses had it all

Drunk a skull with Odin
And rode with Ghingis Khan
Saw Attila, the great one
The Alps with Hannibal

Merlin and King Asrthur
A feast with Robin Hood
Friends with Leonardo
Columbus and the plot

With empires arising
And holy nations fall
The magic mirror shows you
Kings and Queens and all

Just take a look in the magic mirror
Don't turn around at what you see
Just take a look in the magic mirror
You're gonna see what you may be

Luther nailed our destiny
Beethoven wrote the scores
Napoleon and his triumph
Rasputin and the Tsar

Imagine our history
Without those famous names
It makes the world remember
That life is not in vain
10. Tough Luck II (3:36)
Stop messing with my insides
I'm out of control
I always end up feeling
I'm digging my hole

You always came a-knocking
Shouting your rights
You've taken it all
Now it's my turn to fight

We always played this game
Overshadowed my mind
No more these crazy ways
You're finished this time

Tough luck - you did all for nothing
Keep your hate inside
Tough luck - you did all the running
A mean destructive mind

How does it feel to be lonely
And screaming for help
I know you're so restless
Not a slip of your mask

A world without fear
I'm thankfully free
Now nothing to stop
For me being me

My turn to play the game
I'm free in my mind
You've had your freedom-days
But now I've got mine
11. Blind Eyes (4:19)
Nothing - is easy
Don't play the part of the fool
Told me - didn't listen
I know I played it too cool

This is how I should be
Turn the key and be free
A turn around - don't play the game
Better off you will be

Don't walk around with your blind eyes
This game is over to me
Don't walk around with your blind eyes
It's so important to see

Wanting - needing
It was hard - it was real
Maybe - sometime
You'll get back what you need
