I hear the roar of a big machine
two worlds and in between
hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down
I hear empire down

I hear the roar of a big machine
two worlds and in between
love lost, fire at will
dum-dum bullets and shoot to kill, I hear
dive bombers and
empire down
empire down

I hear the sons of the city and dispossessed
get down, get undressed
get pretty, but you and me
we got the kingdom, we got the key
we got the empire, now as then
we don't doubt, we don't take direction
Lucretia, my reflection, dance the ghost with me

we look hard
we look through
we look hard to see for real
such things I hear, they don't make sense
I don't see much evidence
I don't feel
I don't feel

I don't feel

a long train held up by page on page
a hard reign held up by rage
once a railroad
now it's done

I hear the roar of a big machine
two worlds and in between
hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down

we got the empire, now as then
we don't doubt, we don't take reflection
Lucretia, my direction, dance the ghost with me

in the heat of the night
in the heat of the day
when I close my eyes
when I look your way
when I meet the fear that lies inside
when I hear you say
in the heat of the moment
say, say, say:

some day, some day, some day
dominion
come a time
some day, some day, some day
dominion
some say prayers
I say mine

in the light of the fact
on the lone and level
sand stretch far away
in the heat of the action
in the settled dust
hold hold and sway
in the meeting of mind
down in the streets of shame
in the betting of names on gold to rust
in the land of the blind
be king, king, king, king

some day, some day, some day
dominion
come a time
some day, some day, some day
dominion
some say prayers
I say mine


we serve an old man in a dry season
a lighthouse keeper in the desert sun
dreamers of sleepers and white treason
we dream of rain and the history of the gun
there's a lighthouse in the middle of Prussia
a white house in a red square
I'm living in films for the sake of Russia
a kino runner for the DDR
and the fifty-two daughters of the revolution
turn the gold to chrome
gift, nothing to lose
stuck inside of Memphis with the mobile home, sing:

Mother Russia, Mother Russia, Mother Russia rain down down down
Mother Russia, Mother Russia, Mother Russia rain down

it's not a matter of going to grow
it's not a matter of time or how I feel
I'm throwing off the shadow of a better man now
what you see is what you never had
get real
get another
- I don't exist when you don't see me
- I don't exist when you're not here
- what the eye don't see won't break the heart
- you can make believe when we're apart
- but when you leave I disappear
- when you don't see me

oh, it's kind of different when you're there
you can lease the peace of mind
you bought a mask, I put it on
you never thought to ask me
if I wear it when you're gone
get real
get another
- I don't exist when you don't see me
- I don't exist when you're not here
- what the eye don't see won't break the heart
- you can make believe when we're apart
- but when you leave I disappear
- when you don't see me

you never learned
you bought me
everything and less
I turned
you couldn't let me move
I guess, I don't deny, it don't disprove
what you see is what you lost
if I were you I wouldn't try
get real
get another
- I don't exist when you don't see me
- I don't exist when you're not here
- what the eye don't see won't break the heart
- you can make believe when we're apart
- but when you leave I disappear
- when you don't see me

TEMPLE OF LOVE

With the fire from the fireworks up above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain at hand
You run for cover in the Temple of Love
You run for another, but still the same
For the wind will blow my name across this land
In the Temple of Love you hide together
Believing pain and fear outside
But someone near you rides the weather
And the tears he cried will rain on
Walls as wide as lovers' eyes
In the Temple of Love: Shine like thunder
In the Temple of Love: Cry like rain
In the Temple of Love: Hear my calling
In the Temple of Love: Hear my name
And the devil in a black dress watches over
My guardian angel walks away
Life is short and love is always over in the morning
Black wind come carry me far away
With the sunlight died and night above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain inside
You run for cover in the Temple of Love
You run for another, it's all the same
For the wind will blow and throw your walls aside
With the fire from the fireworks up above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain
You run for cover in the Temple of Love
I shine like thunder, cry like rain
And the Temple of Love grows old and strong
But the wind blows stronger, cold and long
And the Temple of Love will fall before this
Black wind calls my name to you no more
In the black sky thunder sweeping under
Ground and over water sounds of
Crying weeping will not save your
Faith for bricks and dreams for mortar
All your prayers must seem as nothing
Ninety-six below the wave when
Stone is dust and only air remains
In the Temple of Love: Shine like thunder
In the Temple of Love: Cry like rain
In the Temple of Love: Hear the calling
And the Temple of Love is falling
Down

In the Temple of Love: Shine like thunder
In the Temple of Love: Cry like rain
In the Temple of Love: Hear my calling
In the Temple of Love: Hear my name
In the black sky thunder sweeping under
Ground and over water sounds of
Crying weeping will not save your
Faith for bricks and dreams for mortar
All your prayers must seem as nothing
Ninety-six below the wave when
Stone is dust and air remains the
Only haven you can trust, and the
Devil in a black dress watches over
My guardian angel walks away
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain
You run for cover in the Temple of Love
I shine like thunder, cry like rain
And the Temple of Love grows old and strong
But the wind blows stronger, cold and long
And the Temple of Love will fall before this
Black wind calls my name to you no more

In the Temple of Love you hide together
Believing pain and fear outside
But someone near you rides the weather
And the tears he cried will rain on
Walls as wide as lovers' eyes
In the Temple of Love: Shine like thunder
In the Temple of Love: Cry like rain
In the Temple of Love: Hear the calling
And the Temple of Love is falling
Down

BLACK PLANET


In the Western sky)
(My kingdom come)
So still, so dark all over Europe
And I ride down the highway, 101
By the side of the ocean, headed for sunset
For the kingdom come, for the
Black, black planet
Black, black world
Black, black planet
Black, black world

Run around in the radiation
Run around in the acid rain, on a
Black, black planet
Black planet hanging over the highway
Out of my mind's eye, out of memory
Black world out of my mind

So still, so dark all over Europe
And the rainbow rises here
In the Western sky the kill to show for
At the end of the great white pier I see a
Black, black planet
Black, black world
Black, black planet
Black, black world

Run around in the radiation
Tune in, turn on, burn out in a acid rain, on a
Black, black planet
Black, black world
Black, black planet
Black, black world
Black, black planet
Black, black world
Black, black planet
Black, black world

THE DAMAGE DONE

Somebody tell me about the rhythm of the fourth floor.
Somebody tell me about the rhythm of the dance floor
Somebody tell me about the...
I need to know about the...
Somebody tell me about the perfect bomb
The royal valley on a blitzkrieg bomb
Somebody tell me how to use my gun tools
Kiss the napalm in the afternoon
I saw the film, I saw the place
I live to work for the killing's sake
When I think you're knocked, when the radio died
And the rhythm playing from outside

See the rebel and the damage done
See the debris and the damage done
See the wreckage and the damage done
See the film, see the damage done

Somebody tell me about the rhythm of the fourth floor.
(This is the image, this is the place)
Somebody tell me about the rhythm of the dance floor
(This is the way the world will end)
Somebody tell me about the ...
(The waltzing man have dancing eyes)
I need to know about the ...
(This is the way the world will end)

Me I'm lost and the radio's dead
Paralysed and the radio's dead
The rhythms gone, the radio's dead
And the damage done inside my head

MORE


Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
One thing I know
I want more
I want more
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

D'you get scared to feel so much?
To let somebody touch you?
So hot, so cold, so far so out of control
Hard to come by, and harder to hold

Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

There are parts of me that don't get nervous
Not the parts that shake
You won't get what you deserve
You are what you take
Learning to cry for fun and profit
I'm not done yet
Counterfeit dollars or the English zloty
Anything I can get

Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more
I don't know
Why you gotta be so undemanding
One thing I know
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

All the love that you can get
All the love
That I can't get to...

MARIAN


In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt,
In this cruel place your voice above the maelstrom
In the wake of the ship of fools I'm falling further down,
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home.....
I hear you calling, Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling, Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the
Grave....
Marian....
Marian, there's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep, breathe long and hard, to
Take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further
Beneath the fatal wave
Marian, I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me
I hear you calling, Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling, Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the
Grave....

Was ich kann und was ich könnte
Weiß ich gar nicht mehr
Gib mir wieder etwas schönes
Zieh mich aus dem Meer
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian
Kannst du mich schreien hören, ich bin hier allein
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian
Ohne deine hilfe, verliere ich mich in diesem
Ort; I hear you calling, Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling, Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the
Grave....
Marian
Marian....

ANACONDA


Baby buy an anaconda, baby buy a thing to wear
She go walking, she go crawling, she go sliding through the air
She go talking warm and fashion, she go talking debonair but
See her face turn to a mask and passion turn to she don't care
She will ... Let it take her breath away
She will ... Let it take her life away
Let it wrap itself around her
Till it kill her in its way
She will ... Blow away

Baby hit the rush hour traffic, get a ride to anywhere
Baby buy th number three, she pay the man, she pay the fare
Baby hit the wild blue yonder, on the mainline, on the slide
Steal to feed the anaconda, will not see the suicide

She will ... Let it take her breath away
She will ... Let it take her life away
Let it wrap itself around her
Till it kill her in its way
She will ... Blow away

Baby finger on the trigger, baby shoot formaldehyde
Turn into a marble figure, turn the matter dead inside
Turn into a chinadoll, go maybe to the final ride
Baby go where I don't follow baby to the other side

She will ... Let it take her breath away
She will ... Let it take her life away
Let it wrap itself around her
Till it kill her in its way
She will ... Blow away

BODY ELECTRIC



Through the cables and the underground
The faceless breathless calls
This is babel, sensurround
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
Too much contact, no more feeling
The sound around them all
Acid on the floor so she walk on the ceiling
And the body electric flashes on the bathroom wall
And the body electric flashes on the bathroom wall
Crawling to the corners where the idiot children call
See the body flashing on the bathroom wall
Through the cables and the underground
The faceless breathless calls
This is babel, sensurround
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
This place is death with walls
Too much contact, no more feeling
The sound around them all
Acid on the floor so she walk on the ceiling
And the body electric flashes on the bathroom wall
And the body electric flashes on the bathroom wall
And the body electric flashes on the bathroom wall
See the body flashing on the bathroom wall

FIRST AND LAST AND ALWAYS


See a body and the dream of the dead days
Following lost and blind
Living, far from here
Tomorrow is hard to find
And it seems like twenty-five years of
Promises and give me more
Scenes of a hand me down in
Dresses heard before
First and last and always: 'til the end of time
First and last and always: Mine

Maybe it's not so easy
Maybe it's a way too long
Say, say you'll be by me
When the evidence comes along

(My calling)
(My time)

See a body and the dream of the dead days
A following lost and blind
Cross my heart with silver
Here's the key behind
Seems like twenty-five years of
Ever after, ever more more more
Seems I wore this face for you
Far too long before

First and last and always: My calling, my time
First and last and always: Mine
First and last and always: 'til the end of the end of time
First and last and always: Mine
First and last and always: 'til the end of time
First and last and always: Mine

And it's passing strange
And I'm waiting for the train
Caught up on this line again
And it's passing slowly
Killing time, but it's
Better than living in what will come and I've
Still got some of your letters with me, and I
Thought sometimes, or I read too much
And I think you know, let's
Drink to the dead lying under the water and
The cost of the blood on the driven snow, and the
Lipstick on my cigarettes
Frost upon the window pane
Nine while nine and I'm waiting
For the train....
She said do you remember a time when angels
Do you remember a time when fear?
In the days when I was stronger
In the days when you were here, she said
When days had no beginning
While days had no end, when
Shadows grew no longer I
Knew no other friend but you
Were wild
You were wild....
Frost upon these cigarettes
Lipstick on the window pane, and I've
Lost all sense of the world outside but I
Can't forget so I call your name and I'm
Looking for a life for me and I'm
Looking for a life for you and I'm
Talking to myself again and it's
So damn cold, it's just not true
Walking through the rain
Trying to hold on, waiting for the train and I'm
Only looking for what you want but it's
Lonely here and I think you knew and I'm
And I'm waiting
And I wait in vain
Nine while nine and I'm waiting
For the train.... [From First And Last And Always]
