Cold War 04:00
The revolution looked so clean Through the filters on your tv screen It’s easy to believe it’s right When you’re young, rich and white Lenin’s work so easily done Those who questioned put to the gun Is this the way that it must be Workers enslaved while the bourgeoisie are free The last cries of a crumbling regime Built on the people's dreams Screams still echo in the red square The stench of slaughter still clings to the air You speak of freedom, party slogans on the wall But are you really ready, will you heed the dead man’s call Fool’s dreams in a little red book Seen it before and can’t bare to look Millions dead, thousands enslaved Digging the pit of the workers grave It’s a trick they’ve played my friends The lies of those in power never end The kremlin was never filled with reds But the ghosts of businessmen

While gulls fly through the still darkened sky A thousand miles away a bird of another kind begins to fly Morning light casts over the land of the rising sun 50 million dead but the reapers work is not yet done Awake with the dawn and go to pray Our emperor will see us prosper another day Serenity passing from earth to sea How were they to know what was to be? A single black bird flies through the sky The world’s fate changing in the bling of an eye Genocide committed with blood free hands Beginning chapters of the end of man Out the window I see it passing by A single war plane drifts on high From it I watch as something falls I hear one last time the siren’s call 10,000 lives that could have been Washed away in a blue white gleam 10,000 tomorrows never seen Arbitrary revenge no longer a dream Why can’t they hear them? They’re speaking but the words won’t come The sounds of silence They’re baking in the blackened sun Why won’t they listen? We’re screaming at the top of our lungs Our eyes are blinded The message from above has come

A rain washes over the city Through the glow I know somethings changing I see it on the peoples faces, anticipation of a new beginning Though acceptance rarely finds me, down these streets the same sob story Calm acceptance is all I can offer Anticipation of a new beginning Vision of a new world Some say that this is the ending But it’s simple a different perception You must believe in nothing too stolen Or these times will be your undoing I see it through the hate and the war It’s lying right there before us Calm acceptance is all in can offer Anticipation of a new beginning Visions of a new world

Needs not dependent to the same degree Restructures of quality, no where to go, nothing to show Greater parts of existence transcend the body, escape the yoke of society Complications.... Needs not dependent to the same degree restructures of quality , nowhere to go , nothing to show Life valueless by comparison with dreams of fevered imaginations Complications....

War, Lies, Torture, No Government can bring you peace Allegations of insurrection Cult religions and government schemes Tesla's dreams distort to nightmares It seems so obscene to me Tension's building up..We've got no right to choose Take a look at what they've created It's the fucking same War, Lies Torture, No Government can bring you peace Sense of change through your new hope But look around it’s still the same Left or right it leads to nowhere Choice seems quite the same to me Tensions building up We've got no right to choose Take a look at what they've created It's the fucking same War, Lies Torture, No Government can bring you peace

Last rites at the union worker’s hall Just like the Miners had 20 years ago But I still feel the same As your memories wash away the pain And I don’t wanna know What went on in your head before the fall And I still feel the same As the memories wash away the pain She still keeps your pictures on the wall Right beside Johnny Marr, and faded Ringo Starr But I still feel the same As your memories wash away your pain And I don’t wanna know What went on in your head before the fall And I still feel the same As your memories wash away the pain Last chance of a teenage dream Drugstore amphetamines Lebanon and the shot heard round the world Day late and a dollar short, lost on the metro Adam Cox’s words still haunt the halls Don’t wanna know What went on in your head before the fall And I still feel the same As your memories wash away the pain

The Summer turned to rain Like the seasons spent in vain Building lives on sand now All the promises that were kept To the ones that never left They’re all over Kept hope alive but far from harm To see life’s a tragedy Kept home alive but far from harm To see life’s a callous dream The run dry fishing fleet Like the ghosts that roam the street In search of where to go now They never moved on past All the fortunes that were cast The day the Mill closed down They blamed it on the drink Just as much as anything But her scars can never heal now Kept hope alive but far from harm To see life’s a tragedy Kept hope alive but far from harm To see life’s a callous dream Hopeless Anomie Life’s finality Bonds we’ll never free Across the western sea
8.
Through all the boring politics They’ll never do just go with it Still comes the future as real as real What are the things left for us now No need to do or show us how Still comes the future as real as real One chance for the children left behind We’re still living here on borrowed time

You all looked really cool Shaved the hair on top of your head Watched your black flags turn to white And your faces fade into the night It’s vertigo I’d heard that song before Off the air in 1994 It sounded better then When the music was my only friend I saw you dancing there As the disco lights romanced the air I thought things would stay the same As a moment lapsed into a day I lost you on the floor While the crowd was screaming out For more, more, more

Search lights on the borders wait for you Search lights on the borders wait for you 3 months on the ocean waves Your life in solitary Search lights on the borders wait for you Search lights on the borders wait for you Say they’re there to keep this land secure 3 nights down a dusty road Your husband cries at home Search lights on the borders wait for you Search lights on the borders wait for you Say they’re there to keep their nations pure Tired notions of yesterday Affront to liberty Search lights on the borders wait for you Back rooms of the CIA Bullets for Kennedy Fema and the FBI They don’t want to know your secrets

In another time When I wandered down these shores of empty islands Waiting for the tide to turn In another day or two What’s a sense of time when you’re alone On a empty island waiting for the tides to turn again Waiting for the lesson learned Still waiting to be discovered through I don’t know how Solitary land, Solitary cigarette in hand On an empty island Waiting for the tides to turn In another day or two You’ll never sleep alone again on an empty island Waiting for the tides to turn now You can’t say it’s over When it’s not over We’re already there You can’t say it’s over When it’s not over We’re already there Gotten what you wanted One last time And to the victor, and to the victor, and to the victor Got what you wanted now And to the victor, and to the victor, and to the victor Got what you wanted now again Waiting for the lesson learned Waiting to be discovered now I don’t know how You can’t say it’s over When it’s not over We’re already there You tell me it’s over When it’s not over We’re already there Gotten what you wanted As you turned away Gotten what you wanted One last time And to the victor, and to the victor, and to the victor Got what you wanted now

Tell Me 03:41
Feelings I have that just can’t go away Whatever you’re doing I want you to stay In all of these times what’s it like to be strong What is it like to go on? Tell me Why it’s over and done Tell me why we can’t carry on Tell me how to kill and to cure Tell me, tell me Visions I’ve had from the top of despair Whatever you’re doing I’m already there Wrong all the time what’s it like to belong What is it like to go on Tell me Why it’s over and done Tell me why we can’t carry on Tell me how to kill and to cure Tell me, tell me And in the aftershock, they’ll never know And when the cold cries out I’ll always call Just like the Action Man we’ll never fall Like life’s illusions that go on and on and on What’s a boy to, What’s a boy to do What’s a boy to, What’s a boy to do What’s a boy
