ALIEN NATION

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
In the heat of the violence
The night´s exploding everywhere
When hate pulls the trigger
The devil comes to take his share
In the garden of Eden
The time is running out so fast
Into heart of the demon
With no escape our die is cast

In the city of angels
Death is just a moment away
In the city of angels
Your future won´t see the light of the day

Beware of the alien nation
Beware of the truth that they seek
They pray for eternal salvation
They pray for your soul to keep

On the eve of destruction
A reign of terror rules the street
When the heads start rolling
The devil comes to let it bleed

In the city of angels
Death is just a moment away
In the city of angels
Your future won´t see the light of the day

Walk on past the alien nation
Walk on to the end of your reach
No fear of the alien nation
No fear of the hatred they preach

Don´t run, there´s no place to hide
Today or tomorrow it will get you
Don´t move, the knife is right at your throat
And whatever you do, there´s no way out
When the shroud comes down on this place
To bury us all alive
We´ll know the time has come, to face the heat

Beware of the alien nation
Beware of the truth that they seek
They pray for eternal salvation
They pray for your soul to keep
Walk on past the alien nation
Walk on to the end of your reach
They pray for eternal damnation
They pray for your soul to keep

NO PAIN NO GAIN

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Mark Hudson
Face in the gutter eyes on the floor
Knocked down twice can´t take it no more
You got no vision in your head
You got no vision better dead
Get on your feet open the door

Walk on down you know the score
It´s a dead-end street back to the wall
You get it together you can get it all

The weak will fall the strong remain

No pain no gain (yeah)
No pain no gain (yeah)

No time for losers you make the call
Believe in yourself stand tall
Another day it´s in your hand
You can be the winner in the end

The weak will fall the strong remain

No pain no gain (yeah)
No pain no gain
No pain no gain (yeah)
No pain no gain (yeah, yeah)

Keep runnin´ don´t look back
Keep movin´ paint it black
Keep goin´ don´t ever stop
There´s time to rest the day you´ll drop

You roll the dice you play the game
The weak will fall the strong remain

No pain no gain
No pain no gain

SOMEONE TO TOUCH

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Mark Hudson
I´m an alleycat with only seven lives
I´m the trouble scratching at your door
When the moon is bright and shining high
I´m getting loose just like the night before
One for the money, two for the show
You can´t resist it on a night like this
I´m the answer baby and you know
Tonight you´re mine, forget the guy you´re with

Baby I don´t care
If I have to crawl an extra mile
´cause you can take me everywhere
And you´re the one I really need tonight

Someone to touch
I need a girl like you
Someone to touch
That somebody could be you

Don´t try to tell me that your daddy´s mean
You think your mama wouldn´t let me in
Come on ´n step inside my dream machine
Don´t fight it honey you just can´t win

´cause baby I don´t care
If I have to crawl an extra mile
´cause you can take me everywhere
And you´re the one I really need tonight

Someone to touch
I need a girl like you
Someone to touch
That somebody could be you
Someone to touch
I need a girl like you
Someone to touch
C´mon baby, I think it´s you

UNDER THE SAME SUN

Music:
Mark Hudson
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Bruce Fairbairn
I saw the morning
It was shattered by a gun
Heard a scream, saw him fall, no one cried
I saw a mother
She was praying for her son
Bring him back, let him live, don´t let him die

Do you ever ask yourself
Is there a Heaven in the sky
Why can´t we get it right

´cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can´t we live as one

I saw the evening
Fading shadows one by one
We watch the lamb, lay down to the sacrifice
I saw the children
The children of the sun
How they wept, how they bled, how they died

Do you ever ask yourself
Is there a Heaven in the sky
Why can´t we stop the fight

´cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can´t we live as one

Sometimes I think I´m going mad
We´re loosing all we had and no one seems to care
But in my heart it doesn´t change
We´ve got to rearrange and bring our world some love

And does it really matter
If there´s a heaven up above
We sure could use some love

´cause we all live under the same sun
We all walk under the same moon
Then why, why can´t we live as one
´cause we all live under the same sky
We all look up at the same stars
Then why, tell me why can´t we live as one

UNHOLY ALLIANCE

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
It came up crawling from the ruins of the past
And I just can´t believe my eyes
It wears the same old face we thought was dead and gone
Forever buried by the time

Unholy alliance
Unholy alliance

It came up screaming from the ashes of the grave
To make this world a battle field
It´s got a voice that steals the courage from the brave
And leaves a scar that will not heal

Unholy alliance
Unholy alliance

Don´t wanna hear the same old lie that spreads the fear
Only fools think it´s cool
We must be blind not to see the signs
How can we dare to look away in the wake of yesterday

Troubled times don´t turn your back to the lions
Troubled times just learn your lesson well
The party is over

We must be blind not to see the signs
How can we dare to look away in the wake of yesterday

Troubled times don´t turn your back to the lions
Troubled times just learn your lesson well
The party is over

Unholy alliance...

WOMAN

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Woman you can change my world
Woman you can change my world

I´m chained to the fears
Inside these walls
The silence talks loud
´bout the things I recall
Through the bricks in the window
I scream at the world
But when no one is listening
It´s hard to be heard

Woman you can change my world
Woman there´ll be no return

I see shadows
Coming through the walls
I hear voices
But no one´s talking at all
I can feel the madness
Crawling up my spine
Reachin´ out
To grab your mind

Woman come and change my world

(Do you remember all those fears?)
They won´t leave me alone
(Do you remember all those tears?)
I pretend to be strong
(Do you remember all the pain?)
I´m getting tired of the game
I cannot live I cannot die
I wanna know who the hell am I

You´ve never seen me
But I know you so well
And before it kills me
I gotta break the spell
The deeper we touch
The higher we´ll go
The time has come
To heal my soul

Woman you can change my world

(Do you remember all those fears?)
They won´t leave me alone
(Do you remember all those tears?)
I pretend to be strong
(Do you remember all the pain?)
I´m getting tired of the game
I cannot live I cannot die
I wanna know who the hell am I

Woman I´m gonna change your world

HATE TO BE NICE

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Hey baby, listen up
I´m not in love with you
You keep runnin´ off at the mouth
And someone else can scratch my back
And I could care less about your legs
I just wanna see ´em walk all over me

I´m runnin´ out of patience
And I ain´t gonna say it twice
The world out there is down´n dirty, honey
And I just hate to be nice

So don´t think about movin´ any closer, baby
Just forget about it
You body may be a weapon on legs
But hey, I´m not fallin´ for that
Don´t you get it, I´m not impressed at all
I just wanna see you crawl all over me

I´m runnin´ out of patience
And I ain´t gonna say it twice
The world out there is down´n dirty, honey
And I just hate to be nice

Don´t you understand
Don´t you understand

Tell me when your eyes say yes
How can your lips say no
A girl like you shouldn´t be surprised
It´s just I hate to be nice

I´m runnin´ out of patience
And I ain´t gonna say it twice
The world out there is down´n dirty, honey
And I just hate to be nice

TAXMAN WOMAN

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
I wake up in the morning I´m thinking of you
In Dollars and Cents in high heel shoes

I start to think and the headache goes boom
I´m counting the bills that are stacked to the moon

The money I´m giving to you
I could live on forever (on the sunny side)
What can I do so my life
Turns around for the better (Got knows that I tried)

Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see it´s only money
Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see it´s so hard honey
To keep up with you

I work twice as hard what else can I do
To make up the part that´s been taken by you

If it wasn´t for you I would be rich
But instead I´m a poor son of a bitch

The money I´m giving to you
I could live on forever (on the sunny side)
What can I do so my life
Turns around for the better (Got knows that I tried)

Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see it´s only money
Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see it´s so hard honey
Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see that it ain´t funny
Taxman woman I keep running
Can´t you see it´s so hard honey
To keep up with you

SHIP OF FOOLS

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Another bloody Monday
Thirty-nine Just died
All hell breaks loose in the crowd
A hopeless helter skelter
Another mindless crime
Some corner of the world is burning down

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can´t take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousant nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin´ through a deadly storm
It won´t take long ´till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren´s call
Damned to be sacrificed

Corrupt politicians
Promise paradise
The thieves are reaching out for the crown
Violence is a killer
Threatens all our lives
Judgment day has come here and now

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can´t take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousant nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin´ through a deadly storm
It won´t take long ´till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren´s call
Damned to be sacrificed

Heading for a nervous breakdown
Can´t take it anymore
I see the fear explode just like
A thousant nights before

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin´ through a deadly storm
It won´t take long ´till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren´s call
Damned to be sacrificed

The ship of fools
Keeps on rollin´ through a deadly storm
It won´t take long ´till we collide
The ship of fools
Keeps on following the siren´s call
Damned to be sacrificed

NIGHTMARE AVENUE

Music:
Matthias Jabs
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine, Mark Hudson
Last night I went to kill
Some time at the famous grill
Where the tall eats the small
There were girls all over me
That´s my insanity
Don´t call me Ringo, call me Paul

I´m in heaven, I´m in hell
Don´t wipe that smile off my face
Can´t you tell
I see faces in the weirdest places
Please, won´t you take me down
Underneath you spell

Oh, oh I´m back at midnight (alright)
I drop my keys, could you get ´em love
Oh, oh baby I might (he might)
I got the stuff to keep it goin´ on all night

Take me down nightmare avenue
Goin´ down nightmare avenue
I wanna take you too

Sharp as a sabres tooth
Back in my favorite booth
I´m getting spanked with cold champagne
I´d walk on a razor blade
If you´re dressed like a French maid
I get my pleasure out of pain

I´m in heaven, I´m in hell
Don´t wipe that smile off my face
Can´t you tell
I see faces in the weirdest places
Please, won´t you take me down
Underneath you spell

Oh, oh I´m back at midnight (alright)
I drop my keys, could you get ´em love
Oh, oh baby I might (he might)
I got the stuff to keep it goin´ on all night

Take me down nightmare avenue
Goin´ down nightmare avenue
Drive me down nightmare avenue
Lay me down on nightmare avenue

Take me down nightmare avenue
Goin´ down nightmare avenue
Drive me down nightmare avenue
Lay me down on nightmare avenue

And I´ve gonna take you too

LONELY NIGHTS

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Since you´re gone
There is an empty space
Since you´re gone
The world is not the same

I go back to the places we´ve been
It feels like you´re still there
I live all those moments again
Wishing you were here

Since you´re gone
There is an lonely heart
Since you´re gone
Nothin´ is like it was

There are memories all over the place
Bringin´ it back all so clear
Remember all of those days
Wishing you were here

All those lonely nights
I gotta fight for you, yes I do
Yes I do

Since you´re gone
There is a heart that bleeds
Since you´re gone
I´m not the man I used to be

I follow you steps in the snow
The traces disappear
We know what we´ve lost when it´s gone
I´m wishing you were here

All those lonely nights
I gotta fight for you, yes I do
Yes I do

HIS LATEST FLAME (MARIE´S THE NAME)

Music:
Doc Pomus
Lyrics:
Mort Shuman
A very old friend
Came by today
´Cause he was telling everyone in town
About the love he just found
And Marie´s the name of his latest flame

He talked and talked
And I heard him say
That she had the longest, blackest hair
The prettiest green eyes anywhere
And Marie´s the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a burning
I wish him luck, and then he said goodbye
He was gone, but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and sworn to me
She´d be mine eternally
And Marie´s the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a burning
I wish him luck, and then he said goodbye
He was gone, but still his words kept returning
What else was there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday
This girl was in my arms and sworn to me
She´d be mine eternally
And Marie´s the name of his latest flame

And Marie´s the name of his latest flame
And Marie´s the name of his latest flame

KAMI O SHIN JURU

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Do you say a prayer
when your feeling down
Do you believe that love
can turn your faith around
You're feeling high and low,
but you don't know what to think
The world is full of saints
who live their lives in sin

Don't ask the mirror ball
you better ask yourself
I think you know the answers
but maybe you can't tell
You'll see it all so clear
just take a look inside
The judge you build inside your heart
will always be your guide

Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru

Another day goes by
and so does your life
You try to make some sense
before your time to die
If you feel humility
for something that is true
You'll find the secrets of this life
deep inside of you

Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru

The innocent won't feel
the judgement day

Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru

The innocent won't feel
the judgement day
Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru
Kami o shin jiru

The innocent won't feel
the judgement day

DESTIN

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Do you say a prayer when your feeling down
Do you believe that love can turn your faith around
You´re feeling high and low, but you don´t know what to think
The world is full of saints who live their lives in sin

Don´t ask the mirror ball you better ask yourself
I think you know the answers but maybe you can´t tell
You´ll see it all so clear just take a look inside
The judge you build inside your heart will always be your guide

Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi

Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi

Another day goes by and so does your life
You try to make some sense before your time to die
If you feel humility for something that is true
You´ll find the secrets of this life deep inside of you

Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
The innocent won´t feel the judgement day

Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
The innocent won´t feel the judgement day

Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
Mon destin inscrit en toi
The innocent won´t feel the judgement day

DADDY´S GIRL

Music:
Rudolf Schenker
Lyrics:
Klaus Meine
Sweet little child
You know nothing
About a cold world outside
You´re too young to realize
What he wants from you tonight

Poor little girl
There is no one
You can trust in the world
In the darkness of the night
What he´s doing is a crime

Your mother denies
There´s a problem
She´s looking away
She don´t wanna hear you cry
She will pray
That it´s over for a while

Sweet little child
You know nothing
About a cold world outside
You´re too young to realize
What he wants from you tonight

Your mother denies
There´s a problem
She´s looking away
She don´t wanna hear you cry
She will pray
That it´s over for a while

An ocean of silence
Is drowning your heart
What never should be
Will remain in the dark

Poor little girl
There is no one
You can trust in the world
In the darkness of the night
What he´s doing is a crime

Sweet little child
You know nothing
About a cold world outside
You´re too young to realize
What he wants from you tonight

Your mother denies
There´s a problem
She´s looking away
She don´t wanna hear you cry
She will pray
That it´s over for a while

An ocean of silence
Is drowning your heart
What never should be
Will remain in the dark

Sweet little child
You know nothing
About a cold world outside
You´re too young too realize
What he wants from you tonight

She is daddy´s girl
Daddy´s girl
Daddy´s girl
