Rising Up Album Lyrics

ShadowLand

  

Deep inside your mind there is a place for you to go

When you close your eyes, you drift asleep and you’ll find you’re not alone

Can you tell me what you see when shadows disappear

Does the vision turn to madness can you see your deepest fears

Now I see my calling – the path which I’m to lead

Floating through a tunnel at the end you see a light

A woman screams, a baby cries, and it echoes through the night

Forces dance before your eyes and death is everywhere

And if you die in ShadowLand, you will stay forever there

Surrounding me is darkness, what I see I must believe

Shadows shift and voices call but you can’t move or scream

Cause if you answer, you’ll be trapped inside this nightmare dream

As old men die the children, we laugh, and the wickedness begins

It pulls you into ShadowLand, it’s the birth of all your sins

Now I see my calling, what I see I must believe in ShadowLand

No One Around

  

I don’t need to fantasize, another night I will get by

Changes come, got a hold on it, don’t you think I’m such a hypocrite

I’ve got no limits, my head held high, spinning my wheels aint afraid to die

Free and easy, living clean, the way to fortune lies unseen

I don’t care, sometimes I’m not even there

I don’t mind, as long as it still feels fine oh fine

Alone, in a dream, the problem is that there’s no one around

A starry night, a midnight haze, walking along tried to make the grade

Stopped at the line, had to pay my toll, A felony fine now I’m growing old

I won the battle cause I’m not dead, and in the tunnel a light up ahead

Two steps forward and one step back, sophisticated maniac

I don’t care, sometimes I’m not even there

I don’t mind, as long as it still feels fine oh fine

Alone, in a dream, the problem is that there’s no one around

Rising Up

  

Rising Up, breaking chains that keep me bound

Looking for a sign that my feet are on the ground

Reaching out, far beyond the eyes can see

We can scale those walls, that hide discovery

Under tow, this world it travels through time

Acting out the dreams and schemes that are within the mind

All systems go, always look ahead

The past is gone now the fire it must be fed

Spinning free, who’s to say if I’ve won

No time for rest unfinished deeds to be done

And I’m going home, but I don’t know what for

Around another turn, I think I’ve been there, I think I’ve been there before

Control is in your hands, decisions must be made

Illusion everywhere, consequences to be paid

It just goes on, it seems without an end

Living for ideas, no one can defend

Evil thoughts and deeds, corruptions seal your fate

No place to run our hide, your time is getting late

You weren’t prepared for the price you had to pay

And now you find yourself with nothing, more to say

Electric Fantasy

  

Bottle in hand, in your pockets a grand - You’re ready for a night on the town

You’ve got a fine, foxy lady who’s looking to please - And she knows she won’t let you down

The parties going to slow so you go to the show - A rock illusion is just what you need

Music and lights rocking you through the night – An Electric Fantasy

Let the sound build like thunder, we’ve got to make people believe what we feel

Rocking and Rollin the parties just starting for real

Standing in line just to see the show – you are waiting

Like a red eyed stallion smells the wind – anticipating

The storm to rise and the spotlights like eyes to start dancing

As you wait for the music to take you to another place

Let the sound build like thunder, we’ve got to make people believe what you feel

Rocking and Rollin the parties just starting for real

Bodies entwined, moving in time, a situation out of control

Crossing that fine line, waiting some good time, crawling up out of that hole

As waves of pleasure assault your ears, a sweet sensation up and down your spine

Pushing and shoving, some are into hot loving, out on the floor tonight

Let the sound build like thunder, we’ve got to make people believe what we see

Rocking and Rollin the parties just starting for real for me

Let the sound build like thunder, we’ve got to make people believe what we feel

Rocking and Rollin the parties just starting for real for me

Never Enough Time

  

I know girl that our time are few - It’s much too long between each night. 

When I can hold you in my arms and be with you - When I do it feels so right

Time are changing rearraigning the way we see our lives

Incomplete and ever strange it makes me feel so high, feel so high

Over and over we plan the days - I turn to look, you’re there by my side

Make the right choice, there are so many ways – for you and me to be able to fly

You and me girl can make it to the top just hold on tight

Close your eyes and take my hand, and love me through the night, through the night

Will – will you wait for me, I don’t know when we’ll be in my arms again

Never - never set me free, hold me so tight tonight, hold me so tight tonight

One day soon if we can work it out – we’ll be together every day

But as for now we must bide our time - there’ll be plenty of time left to play

Take my hand and hold on tight, together we can win

This race against a time so cruel, it seems to never end, but it will end

Will – will you wait for me, I don’t know when we’ll be in my arms again

Never - never set me free, hold me so tight tonight, hold me so tight tonight

Time for me goes by slow - like in a dream you can’t get away

But when you say you love me it makes things easier – cause there’s magic in what you say

Show me the magic that you hold deep in your heart - Tell me secrets, make me feel, we’re not so far apart

Whisper gently that you love me, say you’ll never stop – and hold me so tight tonight

Take away my pain

Take away all my pain - all my pain, take away, all my pain, all my pain

Will – will you wait for me, I don’t know when we’ll be in my arms again

Never - never set me free, hold me so tight tonight, hold me so tight tonight, hold me so tight tonight

Kick Me Again

  

Up all night into dawn, there’s no rest for the wrong

I can’t bear the agony, timeless space eternally

What’s the reason, I’ve waited for so long

Someone show me, how to right this wrong

Can’t say I’m sorry, no flowers can I send

I wouldn’t matter ‘cause you’d just kick me again

I’ve seen shadows in the night, silhouettes that need no light

Waiting for the break of day, just a chance to break away

A promise spoken, but the sound was never heard

A silent sensation, I felt I had your word

Mutual attraction, I thought you were my friend

But like all the others you smiled and laughed, then you kicked me again.

My life dwells on emptiness, took a dive in the abyss

It’s time to forget the past, now I’m gonna kick some ass

I’ve got nothing to lose, and everything to gain

I’m going for broke, and feeling no pain

I’m on track now, like I’ve never been

And I won’t give you the chance to ever…

Crystal Ball

  

People let me tell you what you’re looking for, when you look inside that Crystal Ball

You look for love and power and the easy way out, when your back is up against the wall

You think you’ve found the answers you’ve been looking for, and you know just what you feel

And then someone comes along, and they take it away and you realize it just wasn’t real

Don’t you know, you’ve been taken the fool, baby what you see in life just ain't real

Someday you’ll find that the truth is a lie then you’ll know just how I feel 

You look into the mirror, it’s looking back at you, but you don’t recognize the face that you see

As the image slowly changes before your eyes you find that madness is reality

From madness comes the knowledge the dreams you once had are fading slowly as the nightmares pass

You see that wisdom is illusion and insanities the truth as you gaze inside that looking glass

Don’t you know, you’ve been taken the fool, baby what you see in life just ain't real

Someday you’ll find that the truth is a lie then you’ll know just how I feel 

You’ve got to open your eyes, or die while you’re blind, but don’t dwell too long in times of old

Cause if it catches you looking to long or too deep, it will flash white light and steal your soul

So put a velvet curtain cross that crystal window, you don’t really need to read your fate

And if you’re gonna take your mask off to see what’s inside, you better hope it’s not already too late.

Don’t you know, you’ve been taken the fool, baby what you see in life just ain't real

Someday you’ll find that the truth is a lie then you’ll know just how I feel

Dead End Drifter

  

I live my life on back-street lights, scheming for those nickels and dimes

The time is right, yes, I know the score, A cool cool millions what I’m looking for

If I show you my games, can I change your mind, with many words that you’ll think unkind

It’s a life of habit only one way to go, live for today searching for tomorrow

Always on the run, my destinies with the setting sun, I’m home when I’m free, cause on that highway is where I’ll be

I’m just a Dead End Drifter

The clothes I got are on my back, and I’m running with a dangerous pack

I’m being mesmerized by that thin white line, come on along and we’ll have a good time

A day in one place then it’s time to move on, with the wind in my face and a hard rock song

Trying to stay alive and out of their jail, I hope when I die, I don’t go straight to hell

Always on the run, my destinies with the setting sun, I’m at home when I’m free, cause on that highway is where I’ll be

I’m just a Dead End Drifter

You’ll never see me unless I want to be seen

You might feel the heat rising off my machine

I keep my money in a hole in the wall

I’m buying anything I want at all

Always on the run, my destinies with the setting sun, I’m at home when I’m free, ‘cause on that highway is where I’ll be

I’m just a Dead End Drifter

Yesterdays Cry

  

Feeling sad - Acting bad - The walls come tumbling down

I’m living fast, but it’s not gonna last – I can’t help it, I’m glory bound

Sometimes I don’t know where I’m going - I can tell that from where I’ve been

Toss the dice – Rock and Roll pays the price – I’m rolling sevens – I think I’ll roll again

The future lies about yesterday’s cry - Why did it take me so long

To see the answers when the smoke clears - How could I’ve ever been so wrong

Many the times that I’ve wondered - Why it’s so fast when there isn’t a race

Unlucky in love - One thing I can think of - I’ve got to slow down – I’ve got to cut the pace

Oo oo oo - Aa aa aaa

Escaped in exile, at the end of your rope, maybe rest for a while

A new day can mean new hope

It’s unbelieving to feel up on a down - so deceiving when forward turns you around

What’s the attraction, where’s all the action - Why do you stop to stare

Just close your eyes drift into my high – You’ll find you’re already there

Well I once wished out loud, was I crazy? - Thinking all things had beginning and end

But I learned fast- that nothing’s meant to last - now I don’t slow down - going around the bend

The Outlaw

  

They say I am an outlaw, a hard and callous man 

Without regard for authority and blood upon my hands

I’ve lived a life of violent deeds, and I've bragged of violent crime

The wealth I’ve got to show for it are these bars I’m locked behind

But life is short, and I know well it holds no guarantee

Only death is certain, and no man is truly free

I know it's true my mother cries and my father isn’t proud

My face it ain't too welcome, back in my home town 

Ten years down, ten more to go and I will leave this world behind

And take with me for years to come the scars of doing time

Cause life is short, and I know well it holds no guarantee

Only death is certain, till then you’re never free 

When open road and sky again become reality 

I’ll take the world into my hands and fulfill my destiny

With women, wine, and song and dance I will charge my restless soul 

Excess will be my middle name till I reach that final goal

Cause life is short, and I know well it holds no guarantee

Birth is the beginning, and death’s your destiny

And life’s too short to stand and watch excitement pass me by

I’ll take what I can, then take some more before it’s time to die
