Shout (4:23)
(Haitsma, Lucassen, Xeros)

Hey you,
Your life is a mess
And you disagree
Don’t say you couldn’t care less
Don’t let it be

You love this girl next door
Want her to know
So scared she'll think you’re a bore
Don’t let it go!

But shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout loud!
(I wanna hear ya!)
Shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout it out!

You think that you are a star
But nobody knows
Buy yourself a rock ‘n roll car
To get you to shows

You feel your boss is a jerk
To give you the sack
Too bad they’re makin’ the rules
Don’t ever go back!

But shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout loud!
(I wanna hear ya!)
Shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout it out!
Shoooout!

(solos)

Ooooh aaaah!
Shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout loud!
Shout!
(I wanna hear ya!)
Shout! Shout loud!
Shout! Shout it out!

Shout! Shout loud
(repeat until end)

Battlefield (5:45)
(Haitsma, Langemeijer, Lucassen, Xeros)

Fight, survive the night
With every step, death on your side
Ask for no reason
They’ll get you for treason
Remember the leader is right

Kill! Practise your skill
Enter the lists and fulfill
Wish of your master
To bring on disaster
No choice but obeying his will

You better run, run, run
They’re out to get ya
No place to hide
Run, run, run
Get out of here

(twin solo)

Go, run, leave while you can
All things must come to an end
Soldiers are coming,
No way you can stop ‘em
No use in making a stand

Ruin, oh ruin
What re they doing
Behold this cesspool of vice
Green coats and red coats
Judged by appearances
Who of them lives and who dies

You better run, run, run
They’re out to catch ya
No place to hide
Run, run, run
Get out of here

You better run, run, run
They’re out to catch ya
No place to hide
Run, run, run and
Get out of here

(solos)

On goes the battle forever, forever
Yes, on goes the battle forever, for ever more
Ruin on ruin, what are they doing?
Smoke and fire, higher and higher

(solos)

Ooooh
Seems like I’m stuck here, just run out of luck
Day turns into night, gotta run from this fight

You better run, run, run
They’re out to catch ya
No place to hide
Run, run, run
Get out of here

(solos)

You better run, run, run
They’re out to catch ya
No place to hide
Run, run, run
Get out of here

Oh run! Come on and run now
You better run
Get out of here
(solo)

Get out!

Black Star Risin’ (5:11)
(Haitsma, Lucassen, Xeros)

(Oh, yeah!)
Beware the warning,
The Holy Father gives you
The evil spirit in the body of a child
It bears a birth mark
The sequence of three sixes
The devil’s sign, a descendant from hell

There’s gonna be a black star risin’
Watch out! Watch out!
There’s gonna be a black star risin’

It’s been foretold in the Book of Revelations
The sacrifice of an innocent young life
The Prince of Darkness has given you a changeling
Angels from hell are coming to his aid

So watch out
There’s gonna be a black star risin’
Watch out! Watch out!
There’s gonna be a black star risin’

Time has come when the Jews return to Zion
And a comet rips the sky,
Out of the darkness, the holy empire rises
And you and I must die
But why?

(solos)

I say watch out, watch out
There’s gonna be a black star risin’
Hey watch out, watch out
There’s gonna be a black star risin’
Watch out, watch out
There’s gonna be a black star risin’
Oh, watch out watch
There’s gonna be a black star risin’

Wooow!
Time has come when the Jews return to Zion
And a comet rips the sky
Out of the darkness, the holy empire rises
And you and I must die

Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me!

The Force (6:30)
(Haitsma, Lucassen, Xeros)

Long ago in the darkest ages
In times of war and hunger
Among the wise and an evil sages
Lurked a servant of the dark unknown

A strange glow in the mighty tower
Beyond the black horizon
An evil wizard in the search of power
By the forces of the sacred book

He’s got the force, he’s got the spell
He’s got the power to do it
He signed a pact with an evil master
He had to pay with his life

In gloom of night you could hear the silence
As if the world stopped turning
There’s no sound no sign of violence
In the abbey of the alchemist

Out of the black came a flash of lightning
To fulfil the compact
A gold statue, a face so frightning
When he finally found the sacred charm

He’s got the force, he’s got the spell
He’s got the power to do it
He signed a pact with an evil master
He had to pay with his life

We’ve got the force all through the night
We’re turning rock into metal
We’ve got the force to win the fight
Because I know the time is right

He’s got the force, he’s got the spell
He’s got the power to do it
He signed a pact with an evil master
He had to pay with his life
He had to pay with his life

Somebody
Standing on that hill
Shines his light
He’s walking towards the towers
He only sees
That the damage is done, yeah

He’s got the force, he’s got the spell
He’s got the power to do it
He signed a pact with an evil master
He had to pay with his life

We’ve got the force all through the night
We’re turning rock into metal
We’ve got the force to win the fight
Because I know the time is right

All through the night we’re turning rock into metal
We’ve got the force to win the fight
because I know he time is right

We’ve got the force
We’ve got the force
We’ve got the force, yeah
We’ve got the force

I still got the force

Hard times (5:05)
(Haitsma, Lucassen, Xeros)

Friday night, tired of working
the pressure’s high
time to get out of the groove

You gotta spend your well-earned money
For some action
You’re so wild you gotta move

So hot! The temperature’s rising
So cold! The look on her face
So crowded! It’s hardly surprising
So lone! You feel in this place

Times getting hard for a rocker

Choose a girl to be you partner
She’s so hot—look as bold as can be
Then a punch destroys your image
She’s got a lover—as big as a tree

So hot! Your temperature’s rising
So cold! The look on her face
So crowded! It’s hardly surprising
So lone! You feel in this place

I set the place on fire!

Hard times! Is it a girl?
Hard times! Is it a man?
Hard times! Painted faces
Hard times, dolls and dummies

Hard hard, ha-hard times
Hard hard, hard times
Hard hard, ha-hard times
Hard hard, hard times

Rampage (5:20)
(Haitsma, Lucassen, Xeros)

Don’t need no law book
That’s to prescribe me all the things
I’m not allowed to do or say
It’s my conviction
To try to live my life intense
For just as long as it may last

I go my own way
I walk the path of life
The way choose and NOT the way I’m told
It leaves me stone cold
To see the people shake their heads at me
And quickly turn away

I’m on the rampage, yeah
I’m on the loose
I’m on the rampage, hmm
The way I choose, yeah

It drives me crazy
To see the world flash by
in bird’s eyes view
to live from day to day
I know what’s wrong now,
But I’m so glad there are still others
in this world a lot like me

My heart is pounding
My blood is rushing through my veins
until my brains are overloaded
You cannot stop me
I’m like a tiger in cage
in its rage attacks the walls

I’m on the rampage
Madman on the loose
I’m on the rampage--tonight
I’m on the rampage
Got a life I choose
I’m on the rampage, tonight

Try to understand
The way feel life is just a game
Things get out of hand
I’m no one to blame, yeah

I’m on the rampage
I’m on the loose
I’m on the rampage
And I guess it’s gonna be tonight

I’m on the rampage
I’m on the loose
I’m on the rampage,
The way I choose, yeah
