Lyrics

Strange Dreams

Alone at night in the shadows of my room
I drift inside of a magical view

Strange dreams
Invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams
They make me feel all right

The place I’ve seen, well you have to understand
It waits for me, come and meet me if you can

Strange dreams
Invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams
They make me feel all right

Oh, seems like a million fantasies
Oh, how can I sing the words to tell you all …

Strange dreams
Invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams
They make me feel all right

The dreams of life they belong to you and me
They show us why we can live in harmony

Strange dreams
Invade my sleep at night
Strange dreams
They make me feel all right

Strange dreams

Strange dreams

Strange dreams

Strange dreams

Strange dreams, strange dreams, strange dreams
Strange dreams, strange dreams, strange dreams
Strange dreams, strange dreams, strange dreams …

Midnight Highway

Lookin’ outside, see a slitherin’ coiled snake
Listenin’ now to the wheels and the sound they make
I’m streakin’ through the Midnight Highway rain
And I’m leavin’ a town and
I’m speedin’ on to another one again

In the dead of night I slip from town to town
Not a soul in sight, only the midnight sounds
The miles and miles and miles of dotted lines
Will keep leadin’ me down to a town,
I’m gonna be leavin’ once again

I’m on a – Midnight Highway,
windin’ through the midnight rain
Oh, I’m on a Midnight Highway, take me to my destiny

Speedin’ along in a Silver Eagle bus
Well the road is long, it’s the road we chose for us
We can’t imagine life worth living stayin’ home
We’re a rock’n’roll band and we can’t be stickin’ around,
we gotta roam

We’re on a – Midnight Highway,
Windin’ like a midnight snake
We’re on a Midnight Highway, take me to my destiny

Take me to another old lonely town,
mama, sweet mama
Wake me with a sweet and gentle sound
New York, Chicago, Kansas City to L.A.
We keep goin’ around and around,
we’re gonna be leavin’ once again

We’re on a – Midnight Highway,
Windin’ through the midnight rain
Oh, yeah
Midnight Highway, take me
To my destiny

To my destiny
To my destiny
To my destiny

Stories Of A Hero

The time has come
Said a young man to his bride
My train waits outside

And though I leave
You know I’ll keep you by my side
She holds on a final time

A soldier’s goin’ to war
Told her he’s comin’ home
Soldier’s goin’ to war
He’s gonna be a hero in his hometown, Lord

She stands alone
On the platform lookin’ sad
He waves through a pane of glass

And though she hopes
He will be comin’ home at last
Her heart, it knows what’s gonna pass

Soldier is goin’ to war
Don’t know it, but he ain’t comin’ home no more
Oh, A soldier is goin’ to war
He’s gonna be known as a hero in his hometown, Lord

A soldier has gone to war
Told her he’s comin’ home
Soldier has gone to war
He’s gonna be a hero in his hometown, Lord

The paper falls to the floor from a tremblin’ hand
The words they burn to the soul
Alone she cries, she doesn’t really understand
The world’s gone so cold

A soldier went to war
Told her he’d be comin’ home
A soldier went to war
Gonna be a big hero in his hometown, Lord

And the stories tell of bravery, yeah
He was golden as the sun

Well he fought for you and fought for me, yeah
And he died for everyone

Stories of a hero
Glories of a hero

Well it seems as though the world ain’t changed, yeah
Been goin’ on and on for years

When men must die to be called brave
To earn respect among their peers

Stories of a hero
Glories of a hero

Free

So you think that you’ve gone back
To a state of certain madness
And you find it very hard to believe it so
But the moment will arise
When you sing with joy and gladness
And the trappings of the dawn
They will let you go

Free, from the great illusion, goin’ where you belong
Free, from the mass confusion, going on and on

When the sun melts into night
And the darkness sets around me
I lay down on my bed, and fly
In the morning when I rise
Even more it will astound me
I’ll open my eyes and dream

Free, from the situation, created by men
Free, from corrupted nations, let me say it again
Free, from the world’s deception, going on and on
Free, to sing my song

“Enough!” he cried, “enough!”
Amidst the burning rubble and the debris of agony
And the chaos that erupted with the violence of madmen.
“Enough!” he cried, …
Where the nations leaders stood among the
populace of the faithless,
And the smiles of fortune were cast in gold!
And the inheritance of their forefathers stood
as a monument of suicide!
“The smell!” he cried, “the smell!”
“I am witness to the damnation
And have seen the contributors of freedom’s end!
When the decision of few, made in secret,
Have raped and ravaged those who would lay down
willingly!
Like a whore unto the universe!”
“Enough!” he cried,
“My people have laid waste the gift of life and
freedom, and have worshipped
an abomination,
And have left the spirit of the land with remorse
and desolation!”

Tryin’, Lord I’m tryin’, Lord I’m tryin’
Tryin’, tryin’, tryin’, tryin’ …
Tryin’ to be free
Fighting to be free
Don’t you know that freedom is the key

Until all nations arise
And be strong and just in my eyes
Well a part of me cries for them
Until then I’ll be set free
By the magic of my own mind
As I lay on my bed and dream

Free, from the situation, created by men
Free, from corrupted nations, let me say it again
Free, from the world’s deception, going on and on
Free, to sing my songs

Maybe It’s Time

I see the people
You know they stand in line
Don’t got a job no money
Can’t make a lousy dime

And while the man in the tower gets fat on power
He strips us of our pride
Ya know he ain’t done nuthin’ yet
Well Maybe It’s Time, hey

I see my people
All across the land
They ain’t lookin’ for handouts
Just a helpin’ hand

Cause the man’s idea of justice
You know it’s limited to his kind
And he aint done nuthin’ yet
Well Maybe It’s Time, hey

We’re gonna tell it to the people
Sing it to the people
and yell it to the people
We can put a stop to it
All we really need is
Put an end to greed, and baby
Don’t ya know a we’ll win in the end
Cause Maybe It’s Time

Well Maybe It’s Time
Baby it’s time, hey

Well Maybe It’s Time,

Oh, we gotta get up all together
Throw away the crutches
The man has made us weather
We will do as much as
We can to end the problem
Lord to end the problem
Don’t ya know we gotta stand up and shout
Well Maybe It’s Time

I see my people
So misused
So mistreated
So abused
Got to stand now
Make a stand now
Lord We Can Now
Now

Cause the man he’ll keep on givin’ you
Illusions all the time

And he aint done nuthin’ else
So Maybe It’s Time, yeah

I said he aint done nuthin’ yet
So Maybe It’s Time, yeah

I said He aint done nuthin’ yet
So Maybe It’s Time

Ditch Queen

Ditch Queen
A danger scene
Maybe just seventeen
She moves like something unreal
She thrives on, on sex appeal

She thinks she’s lady luck
She’s a Ditch Queen
And she likes to follow me

Well look at those eyes
Like a pussycat
She’ll eat you alive
She’d love that

Well watch out ‘specially
If you play or sing
Give her one inch
You know she’ll take the whole thing, yeah

Ditch Queen
She’s a danger scene
She knows ’bout, your wildest dreams

She’s painted with maybelline
Decked out like you’ve never seen

You know she likes to rock
She’s a Ditch Queen
And she loves my continental

For a sniff of cocaine
She’ll do anything
And she knows when we’re staying at a Holiday Inn

Well she knows she don’t need to speak
To impress you, she knows it ain’t her mind that’s deep

She, she’s so deep
She, she’s so deep

You know she loves to pose
She’s a Ditch Queen
And she sure has a don’t you know

She gonna show you the ditch
She’s a Ditch Queen
She’s a calculating business lady

You know, she’s got secrets and they just won’t wait
That’s the mystery
She’d like you to penetrate

She, she’s so deep
She, she’s so deep

Ditch Queen
She’s a danger scene
Ditch Queen
Just seventeen

Ditch Queen
She’s a danger scene
Ditch Queen
Full of maybelline

Oh, Ditch Queen
Oh, Ditch Queen
Alright, Ditch Queen
Yeah

Juggernaut

Evolution, revolution are the parents of one another
Moving ever moving crushing everything that gets in its way

Smiles telling lies about the future; I don’t want to believe them
Pity on their faces baby; don’t you think they laugh in your face

Wheels of justice; they have fallen off
Man’s on crutches being kicked like dogs

Politician makin’ money; all the time they murder our freedom
Filling up their pocket while the people in the street lay and die

Poor men workin’ hard as hell; they only end up payin’ more taxes
Give ’em all your money baby; don’t you think they give you a bomb

Lambs were slaughtered for the sacrifice
Man’s now offered up by his own kind

It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut

Cry for your soul
Young and old
Help your own
They will need it, heed it
Don’t be caught between the stones

Economic pressure and recession in a nation of madness
Living under fear of countries launching up a nuclear attack

Men are killing men with paper bullets;
you may wonder how that’s done
Money is the bullet and the dirty greedy heart is the gun

It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut

Rise or fall
One and all
Sink or swim
We can win now
Oh how we can do it if we try

Superpowers playing chess along a board with people as pieces
Taking human life just like they’re only sacrificing a pawn

Don’t you know the game is rigged;
The best that they will do is a stalemate
Who will be the judge of what is right when we are lying in graves

We’ll inherit
From all of our nations
Not peace, only
Deadly radiation

It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut
It’s a juggernaut
