First Strike Lyrics

Heat Street

What can I hear?
Who can I see?
What's this I fear that's followin' me?
It's getting louder.
It's coming near.
I can not stand it.
I'm getting outta here.

You'd better beware now.
You'd better take care now.
The street of the sinner. (or - The Saints & the Sinner.)
So you'll never be a winner.

The rain is falling
Around my feet
The night is calling on this well-lit street.
People in doorways
Just stand and stare.
Cast away shadows that really aren't there.

Repeat Chorus

Guitar Solo

What can I hear?
Who can I see?
What's this I fear that's followin' me?
It's getting louder.
It's coming near.
I can not stand it.
I'm getting outta here.

Repeat Chorus

You'll never be a winner
On Heat Street

Answer To The Master

When the night time unfolds
And the memories that you hold
Bring a light to your eyes
Though you know it's disguise
When the night turns to day
You turn around and say
Magic mirror please tell
Is this heaven or hell?

Answer to the master
Can you look to the sky?
Can you live through your lie?
Of the thoughts you can't trace
Which time can't erase

To a face on the wall
Do you often recall
What you said on the night
When the new full moon was rising?
Answer to the master
Oh yeah

When the night time unfolds
And the memories that you hold
Bring a light to your eyes
Though you know it's disguise
When the night turns to day
And you turn around and say
Magic mirror please tell
Is this heaven or hell?

Answer to the master
Answer to the master

See The Lights

Well I came down here from Manhattan
To see the lights on the mall
But when I got here early this morning
Well I couldn't see any at all
So I walked a little further
And much to my surprise
There was a hot cool woman in a Chevy
Staring into my eyes

I've just got to see the lights
I've just got to see the lights
I've just got to see the lights
alright

She said now don't walk any further
Just jump into my car
And we can head on down the highway
But you'd better not go to far
'Cause my daddy he's big business
So we've gotta be back by tonight
But we can still have some fun now
If we head on downtown to see the lights

Repeat Chorus

[guitar solo]

Repeat Chorus

Well we ended up in this cafe
'Bout twenty-five minutes to one
See, she took me to this nightclub
And the music went on and on
Well we were set down to get coffee
When in walked her old man
No matter how we tried to explain it
Well we couldn't make him understand

Repeat Chorus

alright

When The Walls Came Tumbling Down

On the first day of the first month
In some distant year
The whole sky froze golden
Some said it was the aftermath
Of the radium bomb
While others told of a final retribution
A terrible revenge of the gods

But we understood the grand finale
Fulfillment of a prophecy told many years before
So all that was left was:
All the women were captured and chained
And national suicide was proclaimed
And New America fell to the ground
And all the children lay crippled and lame
But all the nations came together
In fear of the thought of the end
No more would we fight in the streets
No courage had we to defend

When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
When the walls came tumbling down
Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound

A blinding light the sun had died
A new moon took its place
Tidal waves, and open graves the fate of the unhuman race
The city's heart no longer beats no pity have I left to lend
A sinner sits reciting Dylan its now that I welcome the end

Repeat Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Nobody made a sound
(Down down down)
Down!

Wasted

Well I've been lying awake all night
Just thinking of you
But a bottle of whiskey lies heavy obstructing my view
I've got a bottle of pills to give me my thrills
And I know that I'm leading a life that kills

Wasted - I've wasted my time
Wasted - I'm shooting a line
Wasted - I'm stuck in a hole
Wasted - I'm losing control

And I've been meaning to call, I've been wanting to phone
You see I don't like the thought of leaving you here alone
Well I've seen things down here that are fit for a queen
I've seen things down here that should never be seen

Wasted - I've wasted my money
Wasted - I've wasted you honey
Wasted - I'm out of my brain
Wasted - I'm going insane

I'm running in thin air
There's nothingness everywhere

I've gotta get out - Won't you help me?
I've gotta get out - Won't you help me?
I've gotta get out, oh won't you help me get out?

I thought I saw you just the other day
But it couldn't be you 'cos you had nothing to say
'He's going away', they told all my friends
Well now I'll be stuck in here til the misery ends

Wasted - I've wasted my time
Wasted - I'm shooting a line
Wasted - I'm out of my head
Wasted - I wish I was dead

Sorrow Is A Woman

Your always pretending to be
Someone who prefers to be free
You think you can fool me with your lying eyes
But what is this game that you play
When all that your trying to say
Is that your lonely, in need of a friend

Oh yeah, sorrow woman
I just can't seem to get to you
Oh yeah sorrow woman
If only you could see you as I do

And can't you see that it's true
There's someone as lonely as you
Trying so hard, so hard to get through
And why can't everyone see
The way that it really should be
Why hide your feelings and suffer the pain

Repeat Chorus

You know that sorrow is a woman
You know that she'll make you feel sad
You know that sorrow is a woman

Repeat Chorus

Glad I'm Alive

Hello and welcome my friend
It's good to see you again
Do you know anything new
Tell me, is this really you

Hey, what's the story in LA
I haven't been there today
It's time we went for a ride
Come on and step right inside

Too many people have waited
Too many problems created
Too many jitterbugs not enough jive
I'm tired of sitting here waiting
We should be out there creating
It's times like this that I'm glad I'm alive

Darkness our sole destination
Daylight our only intention
White lightning brightens the sky
Can't tell we're flying so high

Rest now and don't be afraid
Can't you see we've got it made
Just cause I'm not going far
That doesn't mean that we can't reach the star

Too many people have waited
Too many problems created
Too many jitterbugs not enough jive
I'm tired of sitting here waiting
We should be out there creating
It's times like this that I'm glad I'm alive

[guitar solo]

Too many people have waited
Too many problems created
Too many jitterbugs not enough jive
I'm tired of sitting here waiting
We should be out there creating
It's times like this that I'm glad I'm alive

Sad story that look in your eyes
Break out before it's too late
Now come and lay down by my side
Let all the thoughts slip away

Too many people have waited
Too many problems created
Too many jitterbugs not enough jive
I'm tired of sitting here waiting
We should be out there creating
It's times like this that I'm glad I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
