DOWN TO EARTH ALBUM LYRICS

GETS ME THROUGH

IM NOT THE KIND OF PERSON YOU THINK I AM 
IM NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST OR THE IRON MAN

I HAVE A VISION THAT I JUST CANT CONTROL
I FEEL IVE LOST MY SPIRIT AND SOLD MY SOUL

GOT NO CONTROL

I TRIED TO ENTERTAIN YOU THE BEST I CAN 
I WISH I STARTED WALKING BEFORE I RAN
BUT I STILL I LOVE THE FEELING I GET FROM YOU 
I HOPE YOULL NEVER STOP CAUSE 

IT GETS ME THROUGH...YEAH
IT GETS ME THROUGH.......YEAH

THE FEELINGS THAT I HIDE BEHIND 
SOMETIMES REALITY'S UNKIND
THE NIGHTMARE STARTS FOR ME AT NIGHT
I DREAD THE LONG AND LONELY NIGHTS

IM NOT THE KIND OF PERSON YOU THINK I AM 
IM NOT THE ANTI-CHRIST OR THE IRONMAN
BUT I STILL LOVE THE FEELING I GET FROM YOU 
I HOPE YOULL NEVER STOP CAUSE
IT GETS ME THROUGH...YEAH
I'M JUST TRYIN' TO LIVE....YEAH (REPEAT)

FACING HELL

YOU MADE A PROMISE OF PROTECTION
TO A FUTURE AFTER LIFE
TO THE FINAL RESERECTION
UNTIL ETERNAL PARADISE

BUT THEN IíM BLINDED WITH TEMPTATION
INTO EVERY MORTAL SIN
IS IT GOD THAT SITS THERE WAITING
OR WILL THE DARKNESS SUCK ME IN

LETS WAKE UP THE DEAD, OH YEAH
ITíS BETTER THAN NEVER YA KNOW
MORE TEARS ARE SHED, IíM PRAYING THAT YOUíLL NEVER KNOW
THAT IíM FACING HELL

OH THE CHILDREN SIT AND LISTEN, THE BELIEF WAS IN THEIR EYES
IN A LAND WITH NO TOMORROWS, THROUGH THE NIGHT YOU HEAR THEIR CRIES
BUT THEN YOUR EYES JUST SKIP THE PAGES, OF A BOOK THAT NEVER ENDS
IS IT GOD THAT SITS THERE WAITING 
DO YOU HEAR THE CALL AGAIN?

LETS WAKE UP THE DEAD, OH YEAH
ITíS BETTER THAN NEVER YA KNOW
MORE TEARS ARE SHED, OH YEAH, IíM PRAYING THAT YOUíLL NEVER KNOW
THAT IíM FACING HELL

ITíS JUST A CRAZY WORLD WE LIVE IN AND IíM OUT OF MY MIND
YOUíLL PRAY TOMORROW BUT YOUíRE LEAVING TODAY
EVIL ONE IS COMING AND HEíS KNOCKINí YOUR DOOR 
CAUSE TODAYíS THE DAY YOU PAY

LETS WAKE UP THE DEAD, OH YEAH
ITíS BETTER THAN NEVER YA KNOW
MORE TEARS ARE SHED, OH YEAH, IíM PRAYING THAT YOUíLL NEVER KNOW
LETS WAKE UP THE DEAD, OH YEAH
ITíS BETTER THAN NEVER YA KNOW
MORE TEARS ARE SHED, OH YEAH, IíM PRAYING THAT YOUíLL NEVER KNOW

THAT IíM FACING HELL 

DREAMER

GAZING THROUGH THE WINDOW AT THE WORLD OUTSIDE
WONDERING IF MOTHER EARTH WILL SURVIVE
HOPING THAT MANKIND WILL STOP ABUSING HER, SOMETIME

AFTER ALL THERES JUST THE TWO OF US
AND HERE WE ARE STILL FIGHTING FOR OUR LIVES
WATCHING ALL OF HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF, TIME AFTER TIME

IíM JUST A DREAMER, I DREAM MY LIFE AWAY
IíM JUST A DREAMER, WHO DREAMS OF BETTER DAYS

I WATCH THE SUN GO DOWN LIKE EVERYONE OF US
IíM HOPING THAT THE DAWN WILL BRING A SIGN
A BETTER PLACE FOR THOSE WHO WILL COME AFTER US THIS TIME

IíM JUST A DREAMER, I DREAM MY LIFE AWAY, OH YEAH
IíM JUST A DREAMER, WHO DREAMS OF BETTER DAYS

YOUR HIGHER POWER MAY BE GOD OR JESUS CHRIST
IT DOESNíT REALLY MATTER MUCH TO ME
WITHOUT EACH OTHERS HELP THERE AINíT NO HOPE FOR US
IíM LIVING IN A DREAM, A FANTASY
OH YEAH, YEAH, YEAH

IF ONLY WE COULD JUST FIND SERENITY
IT WOULD BE NICE IF WE COULD LIVE AS ONE
WHEN WILL ALL THIS ANGER, HATE AND BIGOTRY BE GONE?

IíM JUST A DREAMER, I DREAM MY LIFE AWAY, TODAY
IíM JUST A DREAMER, WHO DREAMS OF BETTER DAYS, OK
IíM JUST A DREAMER, WHOíS SEARCHING FOR THE WAY, TODAY
IíM JUST A DREAMER, DREAMING MY LIFE AWAY
OH YEAH, YEAH, YEAH

NO EASY WAY OUT

LOOKING TO THE MIRROR FROM THE OTHER SIDE
SEEING YOUR REFLECTION, AND A GHOST OF MINE
TRYING TO DENY IT, BUT THE DAMAGE IS DONE
UNDER SARGEANTS ORDERS
BUT THE RACE IS RUN 

YOUíVE GOT TO TELL ME ITíS OVER IT NOW
IíM TRAPPED INSIDE OF A DREAM
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT ON MY SHOULDERS NOW
IS BEARING DOWN AND IT SEEMS
THEREíS JUST NO EASY WAY OUT
NO EASY WAY OUT

READ YOUR DAILY FICTION
SUPERMAN IS DEAD
CRUSHING POUNDS OF SILVER
IMITATING LEAD
THEN IF HE WILL FIX IT
CHILDREN OF THE PAST
I GUESS IT ISNíT WELCOME
DOESNíT TIME MOVE FAST?

YOUíVE GOT TO TELL ME ITíS OVER IT NOW
IíM TRAPPED INSIDE OF A DREAM
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT ON MY SHOULDERS NOW
IS BEARING DOWN AND IT SEEMS
THEREíS JUST NO EASY WAY OUT
NO EASY WAY OUT

NIGHT AND THE SHADOW OF MAN
THIS IS THE DAWN OF THE DEAD
DONíT LET IT LIVE IN YOUR HEAD
AND THEN NOW AS THE SABBATH BEGINS
IT WAKES YOUR NIGHTMARE AGAIN, 
SO RUN AWAY IF YOU CAN, SO JUST RUN, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN

YOUíVE GOT TO TELL ME ITíS OVER IT NOW
IíM TRAPPED INSIDE OF A DREAM
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT ON MY SHOULDERS NOW
IS BEARING DOWN AND IT SEEMS
THEREíS JUST NO EASY WAY OUT
TOO LATE TO TELL ME ITS OVER NOW
FALLING APART AT THE SEAMS
NO ANGEL SITS ON MY SHOULDER NOW
I HOLD MY HEAD AND IT SCREAMS
THEREíS JUST NO EASY WAY OUT
NO EASY WAY OUT

THAT I'VE NEVER HAD

ALL THESE TEARS I CRY
DONíT YOU WONDER WHY
IS IT ALL A DREAM?
NEVER WHAT IT SEEMS

GET UNDER MY SKIN
SHOULD I LET YOU IN?
DONíT YOU THINK ITíS BAD
TO GIVE ME SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD

EVERY WORD I SAY
EVERYTIME I PRAY
LOOK INTO MY EYES
DISTANT VOICES CRY
IS THE LIGHT IN ME
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE
YOU WERENíT WHAT I HAD

CANíT GET SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD
CANíT GET SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD

SHOULD I THINK TOMORROW?
OHHHH
SHOULD I LIVE FOR JUST TODAY?
TAKE THE LIGHT THAT BURNS INSIDE YOU
LET IT BURN AWAY
LET IT BURN AWAY
LET IT BURN AWAY

WILL I SEE THE DAY?
WILL I HAVE TO PAY?
WHATíS INSIDE OF ME?
YOU WILL NEVER SEE

WONíT YOU LET ME IN?
DONíT YOU LET ME SEE?
DO YOU THINK IíM MAD?
CAUSE I WANíT SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD
CAUSE I WANíT SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD

GIVE ME SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD
GIVE ME SOMETHING THAT IíVE NEVER HAD

YOU KNOW...

TRIED TO BE YOUR FATHER
THINGS JUST MADE IT HARDER
SORRY IF I MADE YOU CRY
YEARS TURNED YOU AGAINST ME
HEART WAS ALWAYS ACHING
AND I NEVER THOUGHT YOUíD SAY GOODBYE
I COULD HAVE BEEN WRONG
YOU KNOWÖ
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN STRONG
YOU KNOWÖ.

(THATíLL DOÖHA HA HA!)

JUNKIE

YOUíRE COMING DOWN BADLY
YOUíRE CRIPPLED INSIDE
A RAT IN YOUR SEWER
YOUíVE NO PLACE TO HIDE
A GUT RENCHING FEVER
ADDICTED TO DEATH
YOU DONíT GIVE A FUCK IF IT MEANS YOUR LAST BREATH

YOU TRY TO SO HARD TO QUIT, BUT YOUíLL NEVER ADMIT
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE
THEREíS NO REASONING WHY CAUSE THE MIRROR DONíT LIE
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE

YOU CRAVE FOR THE NEEDLE TO STICK IN YOUR VEIN
CANíT WAIT FOR THE POISON TO KILL ALL THE PAIN
YOU BUY A CHEAP TICKET TO TAKE A SHORT RIDE
THAT BEAUTIFUL FLOWER IS EATING YOUR MIND

YOU TRY TO SO HARD TO QUIT, BUT YOUíLL NEVER ADMIT
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE
THEREíS NO REASONING WHY CAUSE THE MIRROR DONíT LIE
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE

YOUR NAME MEANS NOTHING, YOU DONíT KNOW THE SCORE
BODY IS ACHING YOU STILL CRAVE FOR MORE
SOMETIMES YOU WISH THAT YOUíD NEVER BEEN BORN
TORMENTING CAME WITH A CROWN FULL OF THORNS

YOUR CHASING THE DRAGON, YOUíRE CHASING THE HIGH
A BIRD WITH ONE WING WHOíS STILL TRYING TO FLY
YOUíRE ALL OUT OF SPIRIT, A DEAD MAN ALIVE
A BORN AGAIN JUNKIE, YOUíLL NEVER SURVIVE

YOU TRY TO SO HARD TO QUIT, BUT YOUíLL NEVER ADMIT
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE
THEREíS NO REASONING WHY CAUSE THE MIRROR DONíT LIE
YOUíRE THE JUNKIE

JUNKIEÖ JUNKIEÖ JUNKIEÖ

RUNNING OUT OF TIME

BEEN AROUND THIS WORLD SO MANY TIMES
IF YOU COULD ONLY SEE MY MIND
I WATCH MY SECRET HEAVEN TURN TO HELL
FAITH ALONE HAS GUIDED ME
THE GHOST OF MY OWN DESTINY
I HAVENíT EVEN GOT A SOUL TO SELL

ALL THE THINGS I PUT ME THROUGH
I WOULDNíT WISH MY HELL ON YOU
YOUíLL NEVER KNOW WHATíS GOING ON INSIDE

JUST ANOTHER LONELY BROKEN HERO
PICKING UP THE PIECES OF MY MIND
RUNNING OUT OF FAITH AND HOPE AND REASON
IíM RUNNING OUT OF TIME, RUNNING OUT OF TIME

TROUBLE ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND
A WAY TO LIVE INSIDE MY MIND
MY HAUNTED HELL AND ME REMAIN ALONE
UNDERNEATH MY MASQUERADE
A SIMPLE MAN WHOíS SO AFRAID
I TRY TO FIND A LIGHT TO GUIDE ME HOME

MAMA PLEASE JUST HOLD ME TIGHT
FEELING SO AFRAID TONIGHT
CAUSE YOUíRE THE ONLY ONE THAT REALLY KNOWS

JUST ANOTHER LONELY BROKEN HERO
PICKING UP THE PIECES OF MY MIND
RUNNING OUT OF FAITH AND HOPE AND REASON
IíM RUNNING OUT OF TIME, RUNNING OUT OF TIME

FIGHTING FOR MY SANITY
MANY NIGHTS OF TRADGEDY
GOT TO LEAVE MY RETCHED WAYS BEHIND

JUST ANOTHER LONELY BROKEN HERO
PICKING UP THE PIECES OF MY MIND
RUNNING OUT OF FAITH AND HOPE AND REASON
IíM RUNNING OUT OF TIME, RUNNING OUT OF TIME

(IN BACKGROUNDÖ.) 
UNDERNEATH MY MASQUERADE
A SIMPLE MAN WHOíS SO AFRAID
FAITH ALONE HAS GUIDED ME
THE GHOST OF MY OWN DESTINY
PICKING UP THE PIECES
RUNNING OUT OF TIME

BLACK ILLUSION

YOU LOAD THE DICE AND PAINT THE SMILE UPON YOUR FACE
WITH FINGERS CROSSED YOU SWITCH THE PERFUME WITH THE MACE
WHAT KIND OF DREAMS DO YOU ENJOY INSIDE YOUR BED?
IíLL FACE THE LIES THAT TAKE THE EVIL FROM YOUR HEAD

BLACK ILLUSION IS ALL I EVER SEE
BLACK ILLUSION, IíLL BRING YOU MISERY
OH YEAH
YEAH

YOU ALWAYS SEEM TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO IT ALL
YOU SEEM TO CHEAT THE TRUTH AND NEVER TAKE THE FALL
YOUR LIFE IS HOLLOW AND YOU SIMPLIFY THE RULES
THE TIME WILL COME WHEN YOU WILL JOIN THE OTHER FOOLS

BLACK ILLUSION IS ALL I EVER SEE
BLACK ILLUSION, IíLL BRING YOU MISERY
OH YEAH
YEAH

I LOAD THE DICE AND FAKE A SMILE UPON MY FACE
WITH FINGERS CROSSED I SWITCH THE PERFUME WITH THE MACE
WHAT KIND OF DREAMS DO I ENJOY INSIDE MY BED
YOUíLL FACE THE LIES THAT SHAKE THE EVIL FROM MY HEAD

BLACK ILLUSION IS ALL I EVER SEE
BLACK ILLUSION, IíLL BRING YOU MISERY
OH YEAH
YEAH
YEAH

ALIVE

A CHILD OF A BROKEN MIND
THE FEAR THAT I HIDE BEHIND
I HATE REJECTION, ITíS THE WORST IT GREATLY HURTS ME
LIVING INSIDE MY HEAD
I FEEL LIKE THE LIVING DEAD
I NEED YOUR AFFECTION, ITíS THE BEST, IT GREATLY HELPS ME

WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
TRYING SO HARD NOT TO FALL
GUESS I'M TIRED OF STICKING AROUND
HOPELESS, IN DISPAIR, DONíT KNOW IF IíM HERE OR THERE
FEELING LIKE IíM UP WHEN IíM DOWN

BUT IíM STILL ALIVE
I DON'T HAVE ANY PLANS TO GO ANYWHERE
YOU KNOW I'M ALIVE
I KNOW I'M CRAZY BUT I STILL LIKE IT HERE
WELL IíM STILL ALIVE
I DON'T HAVE ANY PLANS TO GO ANYWHERE
I DONíT WANT TO DIE

A HEAD FULL OF TRAGIC SCHEMES
WHAT KEEPS ME ALIVE IS DREAMS
I DREAM THAT SOMEDAY IíLL FIND THE KEY THAT SETS MY MIND FREE
YOU MAY THINK IíVE LOST CONTROL
THE MAN WITH THE BROKEN SOUL
IíM NOT HERE TO TRY AND MAKE EXCUSES JUST BELIEVE ME

WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
TRYING SO HARD NOT TO FALL
GUESS I'M TIRED OF STICKING AROUND
HOPELESS, IN DISPAIR, DONíT KNOW IF IíM HERE OR THERE
FEELING LIKE IíM UP WHEN IíM DOWN

BUT IíM STILL ALIVE
I DON'T HAVE ANY PLANS TO GO ANYWHERE
YOU KNOW I'M ALIVE
I KNOW I'M CRAZY BUT I STILL LIKE IT HERE
WELL IíM STILL ALIVE
I DON'T HAVE ANY PLANS TO GO ANYWHERE
I DONíT WANT TO DIE

YOU KNOW IíM ALIVE
YOU KNOW IíM ALIVE

CAN YOU HEAR THEM?

SO SICK AND TIRED OF LIVING AND SO AFRAID TO DIE
IíVE LIVED SO MANY LIVES AND STILL I WONDER WHY
THE WAY THE WORLD PERCEIVES ME IS NOT THE WAY I AM
THE ONE HALF THINKS IíM CRAZY, THE OTHER THINKS IíM MAD

I SPENT A LONG LONG TIME, ALONE IN MY ROOM
I NEED YOUR HELP TO GET ME OUT OF THIS GLOOM

CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
ALL THE VOICES IN MY HEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT
CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
THEY WONíT BE HAPPY TILL IíM DEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT

TEN THOUSAND MILLION NIGHTMARES, 
TEMPTATION BY THE SCORE
I USED TO GET SO HIGH AND STILL I WANTED MORE
YOU THINK MY TIME IS WASTED IN SEARCH OF WHO I AM
I TRIED SO HARD TO KILL THE BOY INSIDE THE MAN

I SPENT A THOUSAND YEARS, ONE NIGHT IN MY ROOM
IíVE LIVED SO MANY LIVES AND THAT IS MY DOOM

CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
ALL THE VOICES IN MY HEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT
CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
THEY WONíT BE HAPPY TILL IíM DEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT

I NEVER THOUGHT IíD SMILE AGAIN
ALWAYS THOUGHT IíD BE HERE ON MY OWN
SOMETIMES WHEN IíM DOWN, YOU COME AND SAVE ME AGAIN
AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN

IíLL NEVER UNDERSTAND IT, IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL
JUST LOOK AT WHAT IíVE DONE, ITíS TIME TO COUNT THE SCORE
I SPENT A LONG LONG TIME, ALONE IN MY ROOM
I NEED YOUR HELP TO GET ME OUT OF THIS GLOOM

CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
ALL THE VOICES IN MY HEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT
CAN YOU HEAR THEM?
THEY WONíT BE HAPPY TILL IíM DEADÖ.THEY FREAK ME OUT
