Fear Of The Dark





BE QUICK OR BE DEAD
Dickinson/Gers

Covered in sinners and dripping
with gilt
Making you money from slime
and from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing your lives in your schemes
and your powers

You got to watch them - Be quick
or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief
in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick
or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief
in your head...
Be quick!
Or be dead!
Be quick!
Or be dead

See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who's pulling the strings...
I bet you won't fall on your face...
Your belly will hold you in place

The serpent is crawling inside of
your ear
He says you must vote for what you
want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as
you're alright
So pull yourself studid and rob
yourself blind.



FROM HERE TO ETERNITY
Harris

She fell in love with his greasy machine
She leaned over wiped his
kickstart clean
She'd never seen the beast before
But she left there wanting
more more more

But when she was walking on
down the road
She heard a sound that made
her heart explode

He whispered to her to get on the back
"I'll take you on a ride
from here to eternity"

Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity

She must be having one of her
crazy dreams
She'd never sat on a piece so mean
It made her feel like's she's on cloud nine
She even thought she heard the
engine sigh

But like all dreams that come to an end
They took a tumble at the devil's bend
The beast and Charlotte they were
two of a kind
They'd always take the line...
from here to eternity

Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity


AFRAID TO SHOOT STRANGERS
Harris

Lying awake at night I wipe the sweat
from my brow
But it's not the fear 'cos
I'd rather go now

Trying to visualise the horrors that
will lay ahead
The desert sand mound a burial ground

When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime?
When it comes to the time
We'll be ready to die

God let us go now and finish what's
to be done
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy shall be done... on earth

Trying to justify to ourselves the
reasons to go
Should we live and let live
Forget or forgive

But how can we let them go on this way?
The reign of terror corruption must end
And we know deep down there's
no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say.

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers.


FEAR IS THE KEY
Dickinson/Gers

We live our lives in fever
In a choking sweat of fear
In the heat of the night you can
feel so much
In the heat of the night I scream
"Don't touch!"

I remember a timewhen we
used and abused
And we fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that
passion was free
In the heart of the night... bodies aflame
We live in fever...

I hear your secret heartbeat
I can hear your silent cries
The kids have lost their freedom
And nobody cares till somebody
famous dies...

I remember a time when we
used and abused
And we fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that
passion was free
In the heart of the night... bodies aflame

Now we live, in a world of uncertainty
Fear is the key - to what you want to be
You don't get a say the majority
get's it's way
You're outnumbered by the bastards
till the day yo die...


CHILDHOOD'S END
Harris

I'd sail across the ocean
I'd walk a hundred miles
If I could make it to the end
Oh just to see a smile

You see it in their faces
The sadness in their tears
The desperation and the anger
Madness and the fear

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, just greed is here

Starvation and the hunger
The suffering and the pain
The agonies of all-out war
When will it ever end?

The struggle for the power
A tyrant tries again
Just what the hell is going on?
When will it ever end?

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, just greed is here

You see the full moon float
You watch the red sun rise
We take these things for granted
But somewhere someone's dying

Contaminated waters
Pollution and decay
Just waiting for disease to strike
Oh will we learn someday?

No hope, no life, just pain and fear
No food, no love, no seed,
Childhood's end.

WASTING LOVE
Dickinson/Gers


Maybe one day I'll be an honest man
Up till now I'm doing the best I can
Long roads, Long days, of sunrise, to sunset
Sunrise to sunset

Dream on brother, While you can
Dream on Sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly
by the tides of time

Spend your days full of emptyness
Spend your years full of loneliness
Wasting love, in a desperate caress
Rolling shadows of nights

Dream on Brother, While you can
Dream on Sister, I hope you find the one
All of our lives, covered up quickly
by the tides of time

Sands are flowing and the lines
are in your hand
In your eyes I see the hunger, and the
desperate cry that tears the night.


THE FUGITIVE
Harris


On a cold October morning
As frost lay on the ground
Waiting to make my move
I make no sound

Waiting for the mist to cover all around
I carefully picked my time
then took the wall

I'm sick and tired of running
The hunger and the pain
A stop to look about then off again

Being at the wrong place
And at the wrong time
Suspected of a hit that was my crime

I am a fugitive being hunted down
like game
I am a fugitive but I've got to clear
my name

Always looking 'round me
Forever looking back
I'll always be a target for attack

Ever moving onwards
Always on the run
Waiting for the sight of a loaded gun

I am a fugitive being hunted down
like game
I am a fugitive but I've got to clear
my name

Even if I find them
And get to clear my name
I know that hings can never
be the same

But if I ever prove
My innocence some day
I've got to get them all to make them pay

I am a fugitive being hunted down
like game
I am a fugitive but I've got to clear
my name.


CHAINS OF MISERY
Dickinson/Murray


There's a madman in the corner of
your eye
He likes to pry - inot your sunlight
He wants to burst into the street
with you and I
A world of shadows and of rain
He's seen what love is...
He wants to pay you back with guilt...

He lies to you he won't let you be
He's got your Chains of misery
He won't be still till he's turned your key
He holds your Chains of misery

There's a prophet in the gutter
in the street
He say "You're damned!" -
and you believe him...

He's got a vision but it shines out
through your eyes
A world of hatred and fear...
He's felt what love means...
He wants to pay you back with pain

He lies to you he won't let you be
He's got your Chains of misery
He won't be still till he's turned your key
He holds your Chains of misery

It's only love that holds the key to
our hearts...
It's only love...

He lies to you he won't let you be
He's got your Chains of misery
He won't be still till he's turned your key
He holds your Chains of misery

He lies to you he won't let you be
He's got your Chains of misery
He won't be still till he's turned your key
He holds your Chains of misery.



THE APPARITION
Harris/Gers


Now I'm here can you see me
'Cos I'm out on my own
When the room goes cold tell me
you can feel me
..........'cos I'm here

Here I am can you see me
Passing through, on my way
To a place I'd been to only in my
dreams... before

In a world of delusion
Never turn your back on a friend
'Cause you can count your
real true friends on one hand
.......... through life

There are those that deceive you
There are those that'll let you down
Is there someone out there that would
die for you
.......... thought not

Live your life with a passion
Everything you do, do well
You only get out of life what you put in
.......... so they say

In a world of confusion
People never say what they mean
If you want a straight answer
go look for one
.......... right now

In a room full of strangers
Do you stand with your back to the wall
Do you sometimes feel like you're
on the outside
.......... looking in?

You can make your own luck
You create your destiny
I believe you have the power
if you want to
.......... it's true

You can do what you want to
If you try a little bit harder
A little bit of faith goes a long way
.......... it does

Are we here for a reason?
I'd like to know just what you think
It would be nice to know what
happens when we die
.......... wouldn't it?

There are some who are wise
There are some who are born naive
I believe that there are some that must
have lived before
.......... don't you?

As for me, well I'm thinking
You gotta keep an open mind
But I hope that my life's not an
open and shut case.

Extra Sensory Perception
Life After Death, telepathy
Can the soul live on and travel through
space and time?

You know I feel so elated
'Cause I'm about to find it out
And when I know all the answers
Maybe I'll come back
.......... to fill you in

You don't be alarmed now
If I try to contact you
If things go missing or get moved around
... it's me
And don't disbelieve it
No matter what your 'friends'
might say
We'll meet up again some place
some way
.......... one day.



JUDAS BE MY GUIDE
Dickinson/Murray


Lights out - We live in a world
of darkness
No doubt - Everything's up for sale
We sleep - All of the world is burning
We pray - To god for a better deal
Nothing is sacred - Back then or now
Everything's wasted...
Is that all there is?
Can I go now?

Judas my Guide
Whispers in the night
Judas my Guide

Fight wars - Die in a blaze of glory
Come home - Meat in a plastic sack
Fall down - Better pray to your God
for mercy
So kneel - and help the blade cut clean
Nothing is sacred - Back then or now
Everyone's wasted...
Is that all there is?
Is that it now?

I live in the black
I have no guiding light
I'm whispering in your dreams...

Judas my Guide
Whispers in the night
Judas my Guide

Judas my Guide
Whispers in the night
Judas my Guide.

WEEKEND WARRIOR
Harris/Gers

The rebel of yesterday, tomorrow's fool
Who are you kidding being that cool?
Trying to break away from running
with the pack
But they ain't listening so you've
gotta go back
You're a weekend warrior when
you're one of the crowd
But it's over, just look at you now...

You're not so brave the way you behave
It makes you sick, gotta get out quick
It's all bravado when you're out
with your mates
It's like a different person goes through
those gates
And the game begins
the adrenalin's high
Feel the tension maybe someone
will die...

A weekend warrior lately
A weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain't
that way anymore

You've gotta get out gotta get away
But you're in with a clique it's not
easy to stray
You've gotta admit you're just
living a lie
It didn't take long to work out why

It's hard to say why you got involved
just wanting to be part,
just wanting to belong...

A weekend warrior lately
A weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you ain't
that way anymore

Some of the things you've done
you feel so ashamed
After all it's only a game...isn't it?
And after all the adrenalin's gone
What you gonna do on Monday?

A weekend warrior lately
A weekend warrior sometimes
A weekend warrior maybe you were
never like that at all.

FEAR OF THE DARK
Harris

I am a man who walks alone
And when I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

When the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark.

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's
always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's
always there

Have you run your fingers down
the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light?
Sometimes when you're scared
to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's
watching you.

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
And turned around and no-one's there?
And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you're sure there's
someone there.

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind
Maybe your mind is playing tricks
You sense, and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind.

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's
always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's
always there.

When I'm walking a dark road
I am a man who walks alone.
