Sabotage (1975)

    Hole in the Sky

    Iím looking through a hole in the sky
    Iím seeing nowhere through the eyes of a lie
    Iím getting closer to the end of the line
    Iím living easy where the sun doesnít shine

    Iím living in a room without any view
    Iím living free because the rentís never due
    The synonym of all the things that Iíve said
    Are just the riddles that are built in my head

    Hole in the sky
    Gateway to heaven
    Window in time
    Through it Iíll fly

    Iíve seen the stars that disappear in the sun
    But shootingís easy if youíve got the right gun
    And even though Iím sitting waiting for Mars
    I donít believe thereís any future in cars

    Iíve watched the dogs of war enjoying their feast
    Iíve seen the western world go down in the east
    The food of love became the greed of our time
    And now weíre living on the profits of crime

    Symptom of the Universe

    Take me through the centuries to supersonic years
    Electrifying enemy is drowning in his tears
    All I have to give you is a love that never dies
    The symptom of the universe is written in your eyes

    Mother Moon sheís calling me back to her silver womb
    Father of creation takes me from my stolen tomb
    Seventh Advent unicorn is waiting in the skies
    A symptom of the universe, a love that never dies

    Take my hand, my child of love, come step inside my tears
    Swim the magic ocean Iíve been crying all these years
    With our love weíll ride away into eternal skies
    A symptom of the universe, a love that never dies

    Woman child of loveís creation come and step inside my dreams
    In your eyes I see no sadness you are all that loving means
    Take my hand and weíll go riding through the sunshine from above
    Weíll find happiness together in the summer skies of love

    Megalomania

    I hide myself inside the shadows of shame
    The silent symphonies were playing their game
    My body echoed to the dreams of my soul
    It started something that I could not control

    Where can I run to now, the joke is on me
    No sympathizing God, itís insanity yeah

    Why donít you just get out of my life, yeah
    Why donít you just get out of my life, now
    Why doesnít everybody leave me alone, now
    Why doesnít everybody leave me alone, yeah

    Obsessed with fantasy, possessed with my schemes
    I mixed reality with pseudo god dreams
    The ghost of violence was something Iíd seen
    I sold my soul to be the human obscene

    How could this poison be the dream of my soul
    How did my fantasies take complete control, yeah

    Well I feel somethingís taking me I donít know where
    Itís like a trip inside a separate mind
    The ghost of tomorrow from my favorite dream
    Is telling me to leave it all behind
    Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
    Gotta get to happiness
    Want no more of sorrow

    Realised when to hide
    How I tried to get away from you now
    Now am I right if I fight
    That I might just get away from you now
    Sting me!

    Well, I feel somethingís giving me the chance to return
    Itís giving me the chance of saving my soul
    Pictures of demigod are fading away
    Iím going backwards but Iím in control
    Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
    Getting back to sanity, providence of sorrow

    Was it wise to disguise
    How I tried to get away from you now
    Is there a way that I can pay
    Or is it true I have to stay with you now

    How I lied, went to hide
    How I tried to get away from you now
    Am I right in my fight
    That I might just get away from you now
    Suck me!

    Iím really digging schizophrenia, the best of the earth
    Iíll chase my soul in the fires of hell
    Peace of mind eluded me but now itís all mine
    I simply try but he wants me to fail
    Feel it slipping away, slipping in tomorrow
    Now Iíve found my happiness, providence of sorrow

    No more lies, I got wise
    I despise the way I worshipped you
    Now Iím free let me see
    That now instead, I wonít be led by you now

    Thrill of It All

    Inclination of direction, walk and turn and twist adrift
    With the children of creation, futuristic dreams we sift
    Clutching violently we whisper with a liquefying cry
    Any deadly final answers that are surely doomed to die

    Wonít you help me, Mister Jesus
    Wonít you tell me if you can
    When you see this world we live in
    Do you still believe in Man
    If my songís become my freedom
    And my freedom turns to gold
    Then Iíll ask the final question
    If the answer could be sold

    Well thatís my story and Iím sticking to it
    íCause I got no reason to lie
    Forget your problems that donít even exist
    And Iíll show you a way to get high, oh yeah
    Oh yeah


    So come alive, you know youíre magic to me
    Remember freedom is not hard to find
    Time to stop all your messing around
    Donít you think I know my own mind, oh yeah
    Oh yeah

    Why canít you believe, Iím not here to deceive
    Do you always have to be told
    For you and your problem you can never give up
    Long before the answer was sold, oh yeah
    Oh yeah

    Am I Going Insane (Radio)

    Everybodyís looking at me
    Feeling paranoid inside
    When I step outside Iíll feel free
    Think Iíll find a place to hide

    Tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane
    Tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane

    Every day I sit and wonder
    How my life it used to be
    Now I feel like going under
    Now my life is hard to see

    So tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane
    Tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane

    So Iím telling all you people
    Listen while I sing again
    If I donít sound very cheerful
    I think that Iím a schizophrene

    So tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane
    Tell me people
    Am I going insane, insane

    The Writ

    The way I feel is the way I am
    I wish Iíd walked before I started to run to you
    Just to you

    What kind of people do you think we are?
    Another joker whoís a rock and roll star for you
    Just for you

    The hateful image of another man
    The endless ocean of emotion I swam for you
    Yeah, for you

    The shock troopers laying down on the floor
    I wish theyíd fallen into my private war with you
    Yeah, with you

    Are you devil, are you man
    Youíve changed a lot since you began
    Yeah, began

    Ladies digging gold from you
    Will they still dig now youíre through
    Yeah, youíre through

    You bought and sold me with your lying words
    The voices in the dark that you never heard came true
    Yeah, came true

    Your fallen phallic god dismembered and gone
    A poison father with his poisonous son, thatís you
    Yeah, thatís you

    I beg you please donít let it get any worse
    The anger I once had has turned to a curse on you
    Yeah, curse you

    All of the promises that never came true
    Youíre gonna get what is coming to you thatís true
    Ah, thatís true

    Are you Satan are you man
    Youíve changed a lot since it began
    It began

    Vultures sucking gold from you
    Will they still suck now youíre through

    (Cats, rats)

    The search is on so you just better run
    And find yourself another way
    Rob the dead, they donít feel a thing
    Leave the living for another day

    (Rats, rat)

    You are nonentity, you have no destiny
    You are a figment of a thing unknown
    A mental picture of a stolen soul
    The fornication of your golden throne

    A smiling face it means the world to me
    So tired of sadness and of misery

    My life it started some time ago
    Where it will end, I donít know
    I thought I was so good
    I thought I was smart
    I feel my world is torn apart

    But everything is gonna work out fine
    If it donít, I think Iíll lose my mind

    I know, I know, I know, yeah yeah I know
    Listen to me while I sing this song
    You might just think the words are wrong
    Too many people advising me
    But they donít know what my eyes see

    But everything is gonna work out fine
    If it donít Iím gonna blow my mind
