Lyrics

1. Paradise Lost

Been lookin' up, been lookin' down,
Been lookin' everywhere, it ain't around.
Been lookin' high, I've been lookin' low,
I'll keep on lookin' until I know.
What is this thing I'm searching for?
Is it made of gold?
Something that a wise man said:
"It can't be bought or sold".
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
You've got the money, I've got the time,
You've got the reason, I've got the rhyme.
You've got the answers, I've got the test,
You've got a little, I've got the rest.
How much longer 'till I find it?
Tell me if you know.
I'm told I'm getting closer,
Tell me is this so?
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Searchin', searchin',
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
-solo-
Paradise,
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Paradise lost.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.
Searchin' everywhere.
Ohh, ohh, paradise lost.

2. Red Light

Hole in the ozone, choppin' down trees,
Businessman's greed's, got the world on it's knees.
Military secrets, bein' bought and sold,
Terrorist bombs, all around the globe.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will,
Religion is the badge, under which they kill.
Politicians say they want to save us all,
Gonna build more weapons, and a bigger wall.
Towel-head's gettin' richer every day,
Blood for oil, is the way we pay.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will,
A fat cat's gut ain't never filled.
Red light, red light,
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Red light, red light,
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will,
My wheels are spinnin', but I'm standin' still.
Uncle Sam's sayin', that he's got a plan,
Got a job and a home, for the common man.
Rich man laughing all the way to the bank.
Got a black stretch limo, got no gas in the tank.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will,
The party's over, time to pay the bill.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
Wheels are spinnin', but I'm standin' still.
-solo-
Gangs in the ghetto fightin' over their turf.
Valley boys they are still learnin' to surf.
Half the world is going up in flame,
Other half's wonderin' who in the hell to blame.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
Drive-by shooting is a dead man's thrill.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
My wheels are spinnin', but I'm standin still.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Red light, red light.
Stop the world 'cause I want to get off.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
Wheels are spinnin', but I'm standin' still.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
The party is over, time to pay the bill.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.
Doesn't make sense, and it never will.

3. Be The One

All day long think of what should be.
Ninety-nine for you, only one for me.
People we have got to find a way.
Need some relief, some where, some way.
Shrewd ones they debate to us all.
Hope this won't lead to a wall.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Pain does settle in my soul,
And the biting cold will take it's toll.
Don't need to rush into today,
Won't see the truth inside this way.
My eyes are set on this moll,
This just might pay for it all.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh , let this one be the one.
-solo-
Oh, let this one be the one,
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one.
Oh, let this one be the one...

4. Street Justice

If you're planning on hangin' around,
Better learn the rules of the game in this town.
You see, the law of the land is the word of a man.
Cross the line, break your word and soon you'll understand.
Street justice,
Only law you know.
Sweet justice,
Easy come, easy go.
You know the man at the top takes care of his own.
Keeps his back to the wall, and he's never alone.
Got a six-gun loaded and his aim is true,
Take one wrong step and he might be gunnin' for you.
Street justice,
Only law you know.
Sweet justice.
Easy come, easy go.
Street justice,
What is done is done.
Sweet justice,
Nowhere to run.
-solo-
Street justice,
Only law you know.
Sweet justice,
Easy come, easy go.
Street justice,
What's done is done.
Sweet justice,
Nowhere to run.
Street justice...

5. Wish Song

Will they come for me, when the morning comes?
Will they come for me, when the day is done?
Can't get away, my hands are tied.
I can't escape, freedom's denied.
The dark one comes, so you best run and hide,
The dark one comes, he will be denied.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till we find the empty shore.
In the fire's glow, see a shadow stir.
I know his thoughts, though he speaks no words.
He comes for me and my magic ways.
For the wish song's tune, any price he'll pay.
We must resist, or we lose this day.
We must resist, must resist.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till I find the empty shore.
I see him coming, I feel his presence near.
Jesus has arisen, to lay to rest my fears.
The evil tide has turned, turned away to run.
God is in my right hand, I am the chosen, am the chosen one.
Hold on, hold on to the day.
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till I find the empty shore.
Hold on, hold on,
Hold on, don't you let it slip away.
Hold on, I will open every door.
Hold on, 'till we find the empty shore.

6. Every Man

Many times I've tried,
Lord knows, just as many failed,
To love, to me was just,
Just a fairy tale.
Then I heard that,
For every man there is a woman.
I've got you to thank for this come true one.
What you mean to me grows more each day.
What you mean to me I cannot say.
For every man, there's a woman.
For every lie, there's a true one.
For every man, there's a woman.
For every lie, there's a true one.
How is it that I,
I found you just by chance.
I knew you were the one,
At my very first glance
Then I heard that,
For every man there's a woman.
I've got you to thank for this come true one.
What you mean to me grows more each day.
What you mean to me I just cannot say.
For every man, there's a woman.
For every lie, there's a true one.
For every man, there's a woman.
For every lie, there's a true one.
-solo-
For every man there is a woman.
I've got you to thank for this come true one.
What you mean to me grows more each day.
What you mean to me I just cannot say.
Man, woman, lie, true one.
Man, woman, lie, true one.
For every man, there's a woman.
For every lie, there's a true one...

7. In My Dreams

I feel the cold wind as it blows in from a distant shore.
It speaks of days gone by, of mortal men who fight no more.
What were their final thoughts as the die were cast?
Did they gaze into your eyes and see beyond the mask?
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
The vision is haunting, even now.
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
Oh, in my dreams, in my dreams.
I've felt your hands upon my shoulder once or twice before.
And prayed in fear that you would go away for evermore.
Why must you come, why must you take away what is so dear?
What is your just reward, for causing so much fear?
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
The vision is haunting, even now.
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
Oh, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams.
The picture that you paint,
Is not what it seems.
You're wearing the mask of a Saint,
But I've seen your face in my dreams.
-solo-
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
The vision is haunting, even now.
I've seen your face, once before, in my dreams.
Oh, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams, in my dreams...

8. What's Da Matter With U

(Instrumental)

9. Hey Kid

You think you've got it rough,
Daddy bought you a ride,
But that just ain't enough.
You're still empty inside.
You've got the world in your hands,
But you can't understand.
You see the more you have,
It seems the more that you need.
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
You never break a sweat.
Ain't no blood on your hands.
You got a first class ticket,
To the promised land.
Make a million bucks a year,
But you still live in fear.
You see the more you have,
It seems the more that you want.
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
I want everything - I want everything,
I want everything - everything now!
I want everything - I want everything,
I want everything - everything now!
-solo-
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything now!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want? - I want everything!
Hey kid what you want...

10. Nuthin'

You know I try to remember,
The night we both met.
But all the pain and the misery,
Make me wanna forget.
You know a love like the one we had,
Ain't so easy to find.
Just knowin' that you're leavin' on the next train,
Is a load off my mind.
Ohhhhh,
Glad to see you go.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all.
That two-faced smile that you used to wear,
Really had me fooled.
And the ten dollar words that you spoke,
You sounded oh so schooled.
Wish I could say I was feelin' down,
But I ain't gonna lie.
These are tears of joy runnin' down my face,
And I think you know why.
Ohhhhh,
Glad to see you go.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all.
Ohhhhh,
Glad to see you go.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all.
-solo-
Ohhhhh,
Glad to see you go.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all.
Ohhhhh,
Glad to see you go.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all.
You got nuthin' for me, I got nuthin' for you,
Nuthin' at all,
Nuthin'.

11. Mister Destiny

My, my, my,
Whenever you're feelin' lonely or sad,
Just think of me.
If you're thinking that your luck is all bad,
Think how good it could be.
It's nine o'clock on a Saturday night,
You're still waitin' for the telephone to ring.
Take a chance on Mister Right,
A little fantasy just might be the thing...
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny.
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny.
Come on, come on,
Come on, come on with me,
Mister Destiny.
I'll pick you up at a quarter to ten,
Just be dressed to kill.
We'll spend a little time heatin' it up,
Then I'll test your will.
I'm your midnight man, doin' all I can,
Just waiting for the magic to begin.
Got all the right stuff, got a plan,
Open up your heart and let me in...
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny,
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny,
Come on, come on,
Come on, come on with me,
Mister Destiny.
-solo-
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny,
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny.
Come on, come on,
Come on, come on with me,
Mister Destiny.
Come on, come on,
Come on, come on with me,
Mister Destiny, Mister Destiny,
Mister Destiny.

12. One Sin A Lifetime

Heaven help the soul of a man who falls in love,
Doomed from the beginning by a wink and a little lust.
Hangin' like a puppet on a string from high above,
Just one tiny slip and the whole thing could go bust.
I can't explain it any other way,
No matter what the cost.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, is all you're gonna get.
Take a look around, there's temptation everywhere.
One step in the wrong direction puts you down a well.
Decision making time, and your mind's up in the air.
Pay the price or walk away, only time will tell.
It doesn't matter if you're right or wrong,
It's still the same old song.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, is all you're gonna get.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, is all you're gonna get.
-solo-
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, is all you're gonna get.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, is all you're gonna get.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime, one sin a lifetime.
One sin a lifetime...

13. Forever
