Track Name: Pray For Rain
Don't lend me any more of your books,
You know I ain't gonna read them,
And the last time that you phoned,
Cleopatra was on the throne!
Well, that's a long time ago,
Can't you see I'm being sarcastic!
For God made me that way,
When he told me I should pray...

Chorus. Pray for rain. (x3)

Well, I knew Kurt Cobain,
Even though I never met him,
Where his Soul escaped his pain,
That's where the sun is never settin';
That's a lesson to us all,
That suicide ain't easy,
Unless you're feeling small
And thinking you should pray...

Chrorus.

When the Ghost of Christmas Past,
Finds you and comes aknocking,
And shows you things that make you laugh
And other things that you find shocking;
Like the fact you're gonna die,
And rot away to Nothing,
And life's a struggle to the end...
Why don't you be a Buddha?
And Death can be your only friend,
An Eternity Companion;
But when you kiss the Face of Death,
I wonder if you'll pray...
Pray for Life again...
Pray for Rain...

When you've got no Soul Ambition
And you treat Love with suspicion
And you're dragging all your knuckles on the floor!
It's time to find the Spark within you
It will light your every sinew
And you'll finally get to let your Spirit soar!
Track Name: Numbers
Numbers.

As I brushed a tear away
I thought I saw her smile,
Then I saw the Vampire bloodlust
Rise behind her eyes...

Chorus. Just as the North Wind blows
This chills me to the bone,
She's just a Cosmic Orphan. (I'm...)
Looking for a home;
She is just one of millions. (I am...)
Cold and all alone (Countdown)
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9
10-11-12-13...yes that number's fine! (Wooahohahoahoh!)

How I wish I could calculate me (3.141592)
An Android I would be!
But who wants to a face in the crowd
Lost in a Pointless Human Sea?

Chorus.
Track Name: Rock 'N' Roll Wars
Rock 'n' Roll Wars.

Who remembers the first time,
Back in 1956?
Then the Beatles and the Stones, T.Rex,
Sex Pistols, Cramps...Stay Sick!

Chorus. They tried to thrill us
Using their guitars as guns...
That's why I love Rock 'n'...
That's why I love Rock 'n'...
That's why I love Rock 'n' Roll!

Elvis was the King Elect,
Ramones were Princes too!
Then there was the Clash, the Damned,
Buzzcocks, the Kinks, the Who (and U2!).

Chorus.

Who can forget the Starman?
He changed the lives of me and you!
And Iggy, Lou and Jimi...
Plus the Morrisons-there were two!

Chorus.

ROCK 'N' ROLL!
Track Name: The Eternity Man
The Eternity Man.

She was his "Dolly Parton",
He was her "Johnny Cash ",
They both lived in a trailer park,
Both knew they were "white trash";
They praised their Lord on Sundays
Even though they didn't know why...
The sky is blue,the sea is green
And their life is but a lie!

Chorus. Li, Li, Li,Li,Lie...etc.

Then one sunny morning
She fell pregnant with his ghost,
She broke the news to "Johnny"
While buttering his toast;
Then nine hard months later
"Dolly's" waters broke,
A head popped out on Christmas Day
And for the first time "Johnny" spoke;
He said. "Lord we're so grateful
You sent to us a son,
I think we'll call him Joshua
Ben Joseph - just for fun!
We hope he'll grow up strong and wise
We'll teach him wrong from right,
We hope he'll be a Preacherman
To help to spread the Light..."

Chorus. Li, Li,Li,Li, Light...etc.

When "Josh "grew up to be a man,
He travelled north and south!
And only words of wisdom
Came out of his sweet mouth;
He settled down in Palestine, Texas, U.S.A.
He played cards with the Devil there
And Trumped him every play!
But they shot him at the Crossroads
As he was passing by,
Speaking words of Love and Light
Which made the people cry;
And "Johnny" was there with him
As he lay dying on the ground,
The Light of Love still in his eyes
His voice a golden sound;
He said- "Father please forgive them,
Make them understand why...
SPIRIT lasts Eternally...
IT WILL NEVER DIE!"

Chorus. Di, Di, Di, Di,Die...etc.
Track Name: The History Song
The History Song.

My Spirit's at the bottom of the glass!
You know I came first in my History class?
I'm gonna hang my washing on the Siegfried Line!
Gonna take a walk on the Great Wall of China!
The World's my oyster so it seems...
But it destroyed all my dreams!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, hah! Etc.
Track Name: Time's Wounds
Time's Wounds.

One day we'll stare into the Cold, Dark Abyss,
What could lie there-after Time's Dreams are shattered?
Deep in the Heart, we'll find the Light of Sages,
Then Time will start to heal the Hurt of Ages.

Chorus. Time's Wounds will heal...
1. Beyond the Aftermath
2. When all things come to pass
3. It'll fix our Souls of Glass
(...in the Night)
Track Name: The Drowning
The Drowning.

Suddenly, I was old,
And Youth had wandered sadly from my door,
It's cool bravado gone
Forever more,
Leaving my Soul washed up
On a Shore,
Where Darker Currents lurk
Beneath the Tide,
That's nipping at the place
I now reside.

Gently, I was told,
To face the Waters Deep I must be bold,
And curse not what is waiting
To unfold,
The Unseen Force
Which pulls me from that Shore,
Carrying my Soul back
To the Core,
Through Countless Ages
Sinking Evermore...

Suddenly, I was Old.
Track Name: Iron In The Soul
Iron in the Soul.

I tell of Captain Ahab
Who roamed upon the Seas,
Searching for the White Whale
-his own Soul/Sole Destiny,
He was tossed from shore to shore
All horizons he did see,
But all he found was the Hollow Sound
Of his own Mortality.

Chorus. We should greet the Night as we greet the Dawn,
Pretty soon it'll all be gone,
We must whisper then our Last Farewells...
With Iron in the Soul.

I tell of brave Siddhartha
Sitting 'neath a Bodhi Tree,
Searching for Enlightenment
In Deep Serenity;
He said- "All Life's a Struggle,
This we must surely see,
We should face Life with a Fortitude
Until Death sets us Free."
Track Name: Cezanne With Kisses
Cezanne with Kisses.

She was a mistake worth making
At least once or twice,
Or maybe a lifetime, who knows?
For she makes my spine tingle
Right down to the bone
She is the Muse of my Song...

Chorus. And I send her Cezanne Kisses
Bouncing off the Moon,
I send her Cezanne Kisses
(Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh, Ohh )

I'd let the Mountains tumble
Into the Sea
For Eternity, and her Love;
I'd let the Cosmos crumble
Into the Night
Until it starts Breathing again...

Chorus.
And I send her my Heart (Heart and Soul)
And I send her my Soul. (Heart and Soul)
And I send her my Life (Life and Love)
And I send her my Love. (Life and Love)
Track Name: Dream Me
Dream Me.

I, cease to exist
On the Cusp of your Lips
Where you chase my Shadows away;
And Love's, an illusion they say
But it's better that way,
For Life can be a burden to bear
And Love's just a sweet Dream we can share...

Chorus.
Dream me! Come on, come on!
Dream me! Come on, come on!
Dream me, Dream me...la, la, la, la...

Your Lovelight,
Is the Soul of a Star
Let's me know where you are,
That you're just a Heartbeat away;
This Attraction, growing stronger each day
Could it be here to stay?
Till Eternity drags us away
From our Love-Is it just a sweet Dream?
Who can say!
Track Name: Head Full Of Stars
Head full of Stars.

Turning your face sideways to the Sun,
The Cosmic Rays are there for everyone!
We should all enjoy it while we can,
For when it's gone we'll have nowhere to run!

Chorus. Sometimes I think my mind will explode!
Something's pushing it to overload;
I guess that's what True Love is all about,
So we should take some time to work it out...
(Oh yeah...hoo, hoo!)

We're living on a rock hurtling through Space,
Where our Senses say we've got no time to waste;
Will Cosmic Forces be so kind to Man?
And who'll be left at the End of the Race?
Track Name: Love And The Vampire
Love and the Vampire.

When we go out drinking you always buy me double!
This got me thinking ...perhaps you are just trouble!

Chorus. But when the Moon shines bright and your eyes are all aglow,
And when you lick your lips I love your Moonlight Show!
(For you're my Vampire Love)

When you walk in the graveyard with your long black Gothic coat,
You give me goosebumps when you stare at my throat!

Coda. She is my Vampire Girl ( My Vampire Baby!)
Track Name: A Painted Smile
A Painted Smile.

Acting like a Teatime Treat,
Using tricks of the light to try to find her feet
In this world...of sad and strange delusions.

She don't wanna die from a broken heart
So she builds cold castles filled with ghosts
She can see through... to shield her from Life's Illusions.

Chorus. Without her makeup on,
She's just a little girl,
So young and vulnerable...
The wolves are howling at her door (Do, do,do, do, do...)
Track Name: From Bach To Belsen
From Bach to Belsen.

HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?
Track Name: Lost Yer Faith
Lost Yer Faith.

When we were young "guttersnipes"
We knew the Truth and the Cosmic Path to follow (yeah),
It was written in the Stars
The World was ours this wasn't hard to swallow (yeah).

Chorus. I remember the time we spent
Dreaming Dreams of rock 'n' roll!
That's when I opened up my Soul, my Soul, my SOUL!
Why did you lose your faith? Why did you lose your faith in me? X2
I never lost my faith! I never lost my faith in me! X2

We flew from old Belfast Town
To Soar around, take our Crowns of Yellow (yeah),
But the Gold soon lost its shine
And we were left knowing it was all shallow (yeah).
Track Name: A Song From The North Country
A Song from the North Country.

This is a Song for You...
That I wrote for You...
2000 years ago,
Out of the Dark it came,
To light the Road for You...
To light the Road for Me and You.

And in the Darkest Hour...
When Hope is hard to find...
This Song will be here just for You,
To be a Guiding Light...
In the Cold Dark Night...
Shining through...Shining through.

This is a Song for You...
That I wrote for You...
A MILLION YEARS AGO...
Track Name: END GAME
END GAME.

WHERE ARE WE GONNA RUN TO
WHEN THERE'S NO PLACE LEFT TO RUN?
WHEN THE STARS START FALLING FROM THE SKIES
AND THE END HAS JUST BEGUN?
WE'LL STILL SEARCH FOR ETERNITY
AND THE LIGHT THAT NEVER DIES,
BUT AT THE HEART OF ALL THE DARKNESS
WE MAY FIND THE BRIGHTEST PRIZE
