I've got the fire
Wrathchild
I was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution.
My mother was a queen, my dad I've never seen, I was never meant to be.
And now I spend my time looking all around,
For a man that's nowhere to be found.
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'Cos I'm a wrathchild, well I'm a wrathchild.
Yeah I'm a wrathchild. I'm coming to get you, oh yeah.

Say it doesn't matter ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination.
I know I've got to find some serious piece of mind, or I know I'll go crazy.
But now I spend my time looking all around,
For a man that's nowhere to be found.
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'Cos I'm a wrathchild, well I'm a wrathchild.
Yeah I'm a wrathchild. I'm coming to get you, oh yeah.

Purgatory
Thinking of an age old dream,
Places I have never seen
Fantasies lived times before,
I split my brain, melt through the floor
Over clouds my mind will fly,
Forever now I can't think why
My body tries to leave my soul,
Or is it me I just don't know
Memories rising from the past,
The future's shadow overcast
Something's clutching at my head,
Through the darkness I'll be led
Oh another time, another place,
Oh another smile on another face
When you see me floating up beside you,
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you
(Solo: Dave Murray)

Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away

Thinking of an age old dream,
Places I have never seen
Fantasies lived times before,
I split my brain, melt through the floor

Over clouds my mind will fly,
Forever now I can't think why
My body tries to leave my soul,
Or is it me, I just don't know
Memories rising from the past,
The future's shadow overcast
Something's clutching at my head,
Through the darkness I'll be led

Oh another time, another place,
Oh another smile on another face
When you see me walking up beside you,
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you

Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away
Please take me away, take me away, so far away

Sanctuary
Out of the route came a warhorse of steel. 
I've never killed a woman before, but I know how it feels. 

I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw. 
So now I've got to look for sanctuary from the law. 
So give me sanctuary from the law and I'll be alright. 
Just give me sanctuary from the law and love me tonight, tonight. 

I met up with a stranger last night to keep me alive. 
He spends all his money on gambling and guns to survive. 

I can laugh at the wind, I can howl at the rain. 
Down in the Canyon or out in the plain.

Remember tomorrow

Another life
as i lay here lying on my bed, sweet voices come into my head.
oh what it is, i wanna know, please won't you tell me it's got to go.
there's a feeling that's inside me, telling me to get away.
but i'm so tired of living, i might as well end today.

Killers
You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs.

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise,
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.
I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed,
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

I can see what a knife's meant to be,
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see.

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties,
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike.

Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night,
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!
I have found you, and now there is no place to run,
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?!
Oh yeah, I've done it!
YEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHH!

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs.
Oh look out, I'm coming for you!
Ahahahaha!

Innocent exile
My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began
My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion, 'cos I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began
I'm running away, no where to go
I'm lost and tired and I just don't know. Yeah...
They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true
They're just trying to frame me
and all because of you. Yeah...

Twilight zone
She lays in bed at night and that is when I make my call
But when she stares at me she can't see nothing at all
Because you see I can't take no shape or form
It's been three long years since I've been gone
I can't get used to purgatory, you know it really makes me cry
I'll never know the reason why I had to go
I'm crying, oh, oh, oh, deep inside me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah, can't you see me?
I'm looking forward to her spirit coming over to me
I feel tempted to bring her over to see
just what it's like to be hanging on the other side
I feel so lonely, it's a long time since I died
I try to show her that she's never gonna be alone
Because my spirit is imprisoned in the twilight zone
I'm crying, oh, oh, oh, deep inside me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me? Ah, can't you see me?

Strange world

Murders in the rue morgue
I remember it as plain as day
although it happened in the dark of the night.
I was strolling through the streets of Paris
and it was cold it was starting to rain.
And then I heard a piercing scream
and I rushed to the scene of the crime
but all I found was the butchered remains
of two girls lay side by side.

Murders in the Rue Morgue
someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
run before the killers go free

There's some people coming down the street
at last there's someone heard my call
I can't understand why they're pointing at me
I never done nothing at all.
But I must have got some blood on my hands
because everyone's shouting at me
I can't speak French so I couldn't explain
and like a fool I started running away.

Murders in the Rue Morgue
someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
am I ever gonna be free.

And now I've gotta get away from the arms of the law.
All France is looking for me.
I've gotta find my way across the border for sure
down the south to Italy.

Murders in the Rue Morgue
someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home.

Well I made it to the border at last
But I can't erase the scene from my mind
Anytime somebody stares at me, well
I just start running blind
Well I'm moving through the shadows at night
Away from the staring eyes
Any day they'll be looking for me
'Cause I know I show the signs of...

Murders in the Rue Morgue
running from the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
running from the arms of the law

Murders in the Rue Morgue
running from the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
am I ever gonna be free

It took so long and I'm getting so tired
I'm running out of places to hide
Should I return to the scene of the crime
Where the two young victims died
If I could go to somebody for help
It'd get me out of trouble for sure
But I know that it's on my mind
That my doctor said I've done it before.

Murders in the Rue Morgue
they're never gonna find me
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home.

Phantom of the opera
I've been looking so long for you now you won't get away from my grasp
. You've been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask.
And you know and I know that you ain't got long now to last.
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past.

You're standing in the wings, there you wait for the curtain to fall.
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all.
Yeah, I know that you're gonna scratch me, maim me and maul.
You know I'm helpless from your mesmerising cat call.

Keep your distance, walk away, don't take his bait.
Don't you stray, don't fade away.
Watch your step, he's out to get you, come what may.
Don't you stray, from the narrow way.

I'm running and hiding in my dreams you're always there.
You're the Phantom of the Opera, you're the devil, you're just out to scare.
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air.
Haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair.

Iron maiden
Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be faught, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

Oh Well, wherever, wherever you are,
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far.
See the blood flow watching it shed up above my head.
Iron Maiden wants you for dead.

Won't you come into my room, I wanna show you all my wares.
I just want to see your blood, I just want to stand and stare.
See the blood begin to flow as it falls upon the floor.
Iron Maiden can't be faught, Iron Maiden can't be sought.

Oh well, wherever, wherever you are
Iron Maiden's gonna get you, no matter how far
See the blood flow, watching it shed, up above my head
Iron Maiden wants you for dead...

Running free
Just sixteen, a pickup truck, out of money, out of luck.
I've got nowhere to call my own, hit the gas, and here I go.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Spent the night in an L. A. jail, and listened to the sirens wail.
They ain't got a thing on me, I'm running wild, I'm running free.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Puller here at the Bottle Top, whiskey, dancing, disco hop.
Now all the boys are after me, and that's the way it's gonna be.

I'm running free yeah, I'm running free.
I'm running free yeah, Oh I'm running free.

Drifter
Walk away!

Look out now, baby won't you take me away,
Sittin' here its gonna be a new day.
Gotta sing my song and I can't go wrong,
Gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song.

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight, gonna get you feeling so secure.
listen child don't you see there's a cure?
Anywhere got to get you away, feels so good think it's gonna be a new day.
I'm gonna get my song till I can't go on,
I'm gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song.

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.

I've got the fire
If you're looking for someone that you can keep
then, baby, pass me by
And if you wanted something that's twenty years deep
Baby, don't even try
And if you wanted someone to take your soul
I'll lift you up little bit higher

I've got the fire
I've got the fire

SOLO

So you think I'm skinny, don't you sell me cheap
I'm as wide as a country-mile
Some like it wide, I like it deep
Guess which one is my style
So you think you can beat me by my own game
Maybe I call you a liar

I've got the fire
I've got the fire
