The Ides Of March


Wrathchild (Harris)

I was born in a scene of griness
And greed of 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
Say it doesn't matter
Ain't nothing gonna alter the course of my destination
I know I've got to find some serious peace of mind


Muders In The Rue Morgue (Harris)

I remember it as a pain day
Althought 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 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 least there's someone heard my call
I can't understand why they're pointing at me
I never done nothing at all
But I got some blood on my hands
Because everybody's shouting at me
I can't speak french so I couldn't explain
And like a fool I started running away

And now I've got to 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 south to Italy

Murders in the Rue Morgue
Running from the gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home

Well I made it to the front of one block
But I can't wipe the scene from my mind
And the gendarmes are chasing me
Well I just started running around
Well I'm moving through the shadows tonight
Away from the staring eyes
Any day they'll be looking for me
Cause I know that I show the signs of...

Murders in the Rue Morgue
Someone call the gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Running from the arms of the law

It was the law on my trail
I'm running out of places to hide
Should I return to the scene of the crime
When it's you they're looking for
If I could go directly to hell
To get me out of trouble for sure
But I know that it's on my mind
And I've got to say I've done it before

Murders in the Rue Morgue
They've gone for me
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home


Another Life (Harris)

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


Gengis Khan


Innocent Exile (Harris)

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.


Killers (Harris, Di'Anno)

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!

Oh look out, I'm coming for you!


Prodigal Son (Harris)

Listen to me Lamia, listen to what I've got to say
I've got these feelings, and they won't go away
I've got these fears inside that'll bring me to my knees
Oh help me Lamia
or I'm sure I'll die, oh please

I feel unsettled, now I know that I've done wrong
I've messed around with mystic things and magic too long
I feel I'm being paid with this nightmare inside me
The devil's got a hold on my soul
and he just won't let me be

I'm on my knees, oh help me please
I'm on my knees, help me please

Oh Lamia please try to help me
The devil's got a hold of my soul
and he won't let me be
Lamia I've got this curse, I'm turning to bad
The devil's got a hold of my soul,
and it's driving me mad


Purgatory (Harris)

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
Mem'ries rising from the past,
the future's shaddow 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

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


Drifter (Harris)

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
