Track Name: Run
I remember when we met last fall
Inside a smoky Irish bar
I saw you and we spoke throughout the night
I asked you if you’d come with me
And you begged for me to set you free
For one moment our futures seemed so bright

Let’s run away, let’s run away
Forever now, we’ll disappear
Let’s run away, let’s run away
From here

Let’s run away, let’s run away
Oh you’ll grow fonder when I’m near
Let’s run away, let’s run away
From here

We talked and talked and talked some more
You cried upon the bedroom floor
When I told you it was time for us to go
So I waited all night in the cold
And did for you as I was told
Cause you promised in the morning that you’d show

Let’s run away, let’s run away
Forever now, we’ll disappear
Let’s run away, let’s run away
From here

Let’s run away, let’s run away
Oh you’ll grow fonder when I’m near
Let’s run away, let’s run away
From here

And I’ll take you across the border
To a place where we can hide
From all this chaos and disorder
It’s a place they’ll never find

And you said call me when you’re a filmstar
And you have success and fame
And I’ll live off all your fortune
And your good name

Cause time with you is torture
Time with you is hell
And I don’t know where you’re going
Time will tell, time will tell

{solo}

Let’s run away, let’s run away, let’s run…disappear
Let’s run away, let’s run away from here

Let’s run away, let’s run away, let’s run…disappear
Let’s run away, let’s run away from here
Track Name: The World Is Mine
If you want it, be the person that you hated
Who you swore you'd never be,
And whoever that you once were
Was just a crisis of identity.

Now my heart's gone cold, (But the world is mine)
And my soul's been sold. (the world is mine)
Though my cover's been blown, (the world is mine)
I can go it alone. (the world is mine)

Cause we want sparks, and we want flames.
When we want theater, we jump on the stage.
We'll get it fast, and we'll get it made,
Cause we are creatures of a digital age.

It's a cutthroat world, so now where am I?
At the top of the heap or in the firing line?
I will take what I need without a reason why,
Cause I'm not gonna let myself down when the world is mine.
The world is mine (x4)
Track Name: Youth of America
The voices are ringing on the microphone
With the world at their fingertips, silent as stones
They are waiting in line for the poster child
Of a new generation that is all about style

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

And on the radio the broadcast is clear
And the TV’s are on, yeah the cameras are near
We’re a united front so it’s all very well
We can’t think for ourselves but no one can tell

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

How many times must we do this again
I’ve heard it before but you’ve spoiled the end
The voices of truth are now on fire
Burning the flames of my desires
This is the way we sleep at night
Knowing our pain is their delight
This is the way we lose control
Stealing and swearing that we never stole

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go

Cause I don’t want to be one of the youth of America
Walking the world so blind
Cause we are the slaves of our culture
We take all they feed through our minds

Maybe someday in Australia
The UK or Africa
Someone will stop pretending
Like the Youth in America

And they ask for my blood now but I’ve got to let go
And they ask for my soul (oh yeah) I’ve got to let go
And we’re walking on ice now but I’ve got to let go
And we’re burning to ashes still I’ve got to let go
Track Name: Under Your Black Cloud
I’ve been over this a thousand times again and again in my head
But I can’t find a good reason why I never said what I should have said
I’ve got to get myself to another place, I’ve got to get you out of my mind
And release myself from your hold on me, within your web I’ve become entwined

But I keep slipping back under, and it’s gonna kill me
I keep slipping back under, yeah it’s gonna kill me

Under your black cloud, making me dwell on the past
I’m lost in a trance
Under you black cloud, casting a shadow of doubt
I’ve got to get out from under your black cloud

I’m heading north for some arctic air cause I’m traumatized by your heat
I’m behaving like a carnivore, who can’t seem to find any meat
I’m gonna run through the middle of nowhere, drift across the desert sands in shame
I’m gonna run through the gates of the city, back onto the streets to shoulder the blame

But I keep slipping back under, and it’s gonna kill me
I keep slipping back under, yeah it’s gonna kill me

Under your black cloud, making me dwell on the past
I’m lost in a trance
Under you black cloud, casting a shadow of doubt
I’ve got to get out from under your black cloud

I've gotta get out of the rain, I can't stand the pain.
I've gotta get out, get out, get out, get out.
I won't play your game, we can't be the same.
I've gotta get out, get out, get out, get out.
I'm running lost in the streets, but I can taste your defeat.
You've gotta get out, get out, get out, get out.
I won't play your game, we can't be the same.
I've gotta get out, get out, get out from under your black cloud.
Track Name: Angelina
Stop, stop looking for sympathy
And clouding your judgment in ecstasy
When she starts selling her fantasy
She’ll make the world stand still
But this is such a discrepancy
Last night was nothing but memories
Cause she started selling her fantasy
And made all time stand still - and you paid

Cause you feel so alive
And you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a sound

So stop, stop looking for sympathy
And clouding your judgment in ecstasy
When she starts selling her fantasy
She’ll make the world stand still-and I paid

Cause you feel so alive
And you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a sound
Angelina, don’t believe her it will only bring you down
Angelina, don’t believe, don’t believe a word don’t believe a...

Cause you feel so alive
And you feel so alive, alive again
But it’s all in your head
Cause it’s only pretend

Angelina...if you want heaven she'll take you there
Angelina...stop, stop bringing him down, stop bringing him down
Angelina...she'll make you feel so alive, make you feel so alive
Angelina...if you want heaven she'll take you there
Track Name: Rock N' Roll Star
She's been living out of his gaping pockets,
Never had to lay out a dime.
She gave her heart to the next highest bidder
And left him to pay for the crime.
I guess she's doing alright on her own,
She says she doesn't want him no more.
I guess she won't be coming back home,
She says she's never seen him before...

Cause she's a rock n' roll star.
She's a rock n' roll star.
Yeah she's a rock n' roll star.
She's a rock n' roll...

She's been spinning round the innermost circles,
Never turned away at the door.
Given enough to flatten a rhino,
But they're always giving her more.
I guess she's doing alright on the scene,
Says she doesn't want him around.
Cause she can go wherever she pleases,
She's made this her kind of town.

Cause she's a rock n' roll star.
She's a rock n' roll star.
Yeah she's a rock n' roll star.
She's a rock n' roll...

Cause she's a rock n' roll star.
She's a rock n' roll star.
See her head face down on the bar,
Cause she's a rock n' roll star.
Track Name: Promise Me, Promise Me
Was this how life was supposed to be,
Was this what they had in mind?
Two lost souls searching endlessly
For something they’ll never find.
But I’ll go, cause I lost my faith in myself, and I lost my faith in you.
I lost my faith in myself, and I lost my faith in you.

Oh I wish that you were far away,
I’ve lived to regret that day you came.
Because I know that wherever we go from here,
That things can never be the same.
But you know I did everything I could
To bring us to that happy end,
And we’ve wasted each and every second chance, we’ve gone back and forth and back again.
We’ve gone back again.

So promise me, oh promise me you’ll leave me at the altar.
Promise me, oh promise me you’ll swim for brighter shores.
I have always been running from those things that have appalled me,
But I just can’t stop myself from coming back for more.

And when I think of how you used to be,
Before I sucked the life from you,
I wonder how things got this way.
Why was this the only fate we knew?
Now you can cut me loose, I’ve got the knife in hand, I’ve put that thought back in your head.
Cause we’re holding on when there’s nothing left,
And all that trust is torn to shreds.
It’s been torn to shreds.

So promise me, oh promise me you’ll leave me at the altar.
Promise me, oh promise me you’ll swim for brighter shores.
I have always been running from those things that have appalled me,
But I just can’t stop myself from coming back for more.

So this is how it was meant to be.
This is what they had in mind.
Two lost souls searching endlessly
For something they’ll never find.
So don’t go, you’ve got to have faith in yourself,
Though I lost my faith in you.
You’ve got to have faith in yourself,
Though I lost my faith in you.
You can still have some faith in yourself,
Though I lost my faith in you.
You’ve got to have faith in yourself,
Though I lost my faith in,
I lost my faith in you

So promise me, oh promise me you’ll leave me at the altar.
Promise me, oh promise me you’ll swim for brighter shores.
I have always been running from those things that have appalled me,
But I just can’t stop myself from coming back for more.
Back for more...I keep coming back for more
Back for more...I keep coming back for more
I have always been running from those things that have appalled me,
But I just can’t stop myself from coming back for more.
Track Name: Another Place In Another Time
Let's see the way they did this a thousand years ago,
When the world felt the wait of man but the scars did not show.
We'd walk among these people now so many dead
And have a drink with the one right there from those books that I've read.

And I'll say:
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
But when the sun goes down it all looks the same to me.
Just a pint will set us free.

We'd talk about the times both future and the past,
And we'd talk about the peace but I think it won't last.
He'd try to change things, but he knows that it won't stick,
So we drink 'till the morning hours, 'till we fall over sick.

And I'll say:
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
But when the sun goes down it all looks the same to me.
Just a pint will set us free.

Oh yeah
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
I'm not from here I'm from another place in another time.
I'm not from here,
I'm not from here,
I'm not from here, oh yeah.

I'll be back tomorrow to the place where I belong
With another drink and another drinking song.
I'll be back tomorrow to the place that I call home
With another friend but I feel so all alone.
