    Black Moon

    1. Black Moon

      Everyday I see a new cloud coming
      There's one more hole in space
      Everytime I walk across the street
      I feel the gas blowing in my face
      We never learn even deserts burn
      And all politicians lie
      They won't do nothin'
      'Till we reach high noon
      Black Moon

      Ain't nobody gonna walk on water
      When it falls like acid rain
      Nobody gonna fake you out
      Every poison stains
      We're all stuck here
      Right in the middle
      We never call the tune
      They won't do nothin'
      'Till we reach high noon
      Black Moon

      In the night see the red sky burning
      There's fire on the mountain
      Oil slicks on the sea
      Black Moon is rising
      How long will it be

      Just take a look around the world
      The future never waits
      We're skating on the thin ice
      And we're in the hands of fate
      What we need's a little re-direction
      To find our blue lagoon
      You know it wouldn't come
      A moment to soon
      Black Moon's
      Ghostly images die

    2. Paper Blood

      Livin' on a razor's edge
      Sharper than a knife
      Surrender to the power of wedge
      Keep running for your life
      You don't need no periscope
      You won't need second sight
      It'll come at you so fast my friend
      It's thank you and goodnight

    chorus:

    Caught in the river
    You can't stop the flood
    That's the power of money, paper blood

      Ambition flies on silver wings
      Searching for a crown
      King of kings, they pull the strings
      Until they run you down
      No matter what you've undergone
      The measure of success
      Is how much you can charge it on
      American Express
    chorus
      You don't need to drive a car
      And you don't need a house
      And you don't need a guiding star
      When living like a mouse
      In the presidenttial suite
      They'd rather see you burn
      Ducking and diving just to make ends meet
      To the point of no return

    3. Affairs Of The Heart

      She looked at me across the room
      Emerging from a silk cocoon
      Along beneath venetian chandeliers
      Against the moon her body rocks
      Her eyes were cunning like a fox
      The wings of passion fly on all frontiers

      From this fire there's no returning
      No escape your heart is burning
      Love becomes a lethal weapon
      No one is to smart
      In affairs of the heart

      Now upon the bridge she waits
      Dreaming of our tangled fates
      Her face was like a ghost with eyes of jade
      I fell just like a falling star
      A victim of this coup d'etat
      I could not see behind this masquerade

      From this fire there's no returning
      No escape your heart is burning
      Love becomes a leathal weapon
      Be careful where you start
      In affairs of the heart

      Sometimes I think I'll never learn
      Were all those promises in vain
      Do the wings of fire still remain

      All is fair in love and war
      The tender draw the shortest straw
      Like autumn leaves they vanish in the air
      Is this the time we say good-bye
      I call her room there's no reply
      Tonight we end this fleeting love affair

      From this fire there's no returning
      No escape your heart is burning
      Love becomes a leathal weapon
      Sharper than a dart
      In affairs of the heart

    4. Romeo And Juliet

      ( instrumental )

    5. Farewell To Arms

      In this our life on Earth
      Another dawn we face
      Is this the moment of truth
      For the whole human race
      Is that the last man down
      Is that the last life laid to waste
      Can we find in our hearts
      Each and every dream we've misplaced
      Before Heaven cries tears
      On the mountain we climb

      Farewell to arms
      Rest in peace
      May the rain of freedom be released
      Farewell to arms
      We just can't walk away
      We're all sharing this Earth at the end of the day

      So when the cold wind bites
      And the mad dogs speak
      However dark is your night
      Just keep turning your cheek
      'Cause when the last shot's fired
      It is then the world will be free
      And still we are asking
      Just how long will it be
      Though we're blown by the crosswinds
      We stand like a tree

      Farewell to arms
      Rest in peace
      May the rain of freedom be released
      Farewell to arms
      We just can't walk away
      We're all sharing this earth at the end of the day

      Down this road we've wandered for so many years
      With every step we take
      We can tear down all frontiers
      Make no mistake

      Farewell to arms
      Rest in peace
      May the rain of freedom be released

    6. Changing States

      ( Instrumental )

    7. Burning Bridges

      Miles away
      The light in the distance looks miles away
      Tired of resistance and turned away
      Going back to the Holy land
      Last night your anger was born again
      Carry the torch in your heart
      And your anger on the vine
      Still buried in your pride

      And when the morning sighs
      And when the rains fall dry
      Scarring the mountainside
      They burn the bridges down
      And when the laughter dies
      Can't you see beyond the lines
      Waving the last goodbye
      Gonna burn these bridges down

      Home again
      Marching in circles, we're home again
      Carry the torch in your heart
      And your anger on the vine
      Still buried in your pride
      And when the morning sighs
      And when the rains fall dry
      Scarring the mountainside
      They burn the bridges down
      And when the laughter dies
      Can't you see beyond the lines
      Waving the last goodbye
      Gonna burn these bridges down

    8. Close To Home

      ( Instrumental )

    9. Better Days

      I was walking on this station
      I could see somebody lying on a chair
      I went over to him
      I said, hey man, what are you doing there
      And have you got a smoke
      I said you'd better come in out of the rain
      Before you get yourself soaked

      No one can feel inside
      How deep the oceans, heartaches hide
    chorus:

    So stand on me, I'll catch you falling
    You can stand on me and I'll help you find a way
    Stand on me, I can see our ship turning
    Stand on me, we're sailing on the wind of better days

      And they accuse you when you're over and out
      Ulterior motives, that's what it's all about
      It's just human nature, they try to make you flinch
      But we're takin' the higher ground inch by inch
      No one cal feel inside
      How deep the oceans, heartaches hide
    chorus
      And if you tumble when the snowflakes fall
      (This is a jungle, it's not a waterfall)
      From where you're standing you can't get no change
      They keep moving the target clean out of range

    10. Footprints In The Snow

      First time when you looked at me
      You tried to hide but I could see
      A special beauty in your eyes
      Passion flying like a spark
      Like an arrow to the mark
      I feel it sting my jealousy

      Before you know there's footprints in the snow

      Desire like a river flows
      Where it comes from no one knows
      Love just like a flower grows
      And then God only knows
      It comes down like guillotine

      Now I feel the rain
      of love torn by a hurricane
      One night eclipsed the sun
      How deep still waters run

      How deep they go like footprints in the snow

      Take my love into your brest
      Commit my spirit to the test
      You wwill see him like a knight
      His armour gleams
      We'll fly upon his angel's wings
      Above the clouds in rainbow rings
      We can sail a ship of dreams
    chorus:

    If you will take my hand
    We can cross this desert made of sand
    We can break in through the ice
    And feel the wind of paradise
    We'll feel it blow our footprints in the snow

      Anytime you feel alone
      Just raise your hand, pick up the phone
      Take in my number, there I'll be
      If one day your stars won't shine
      I will give you some of mine
      Cause they could fall so easily

      We both know there's footprints in the snow
