Silhouettes debate then they test their fate
Pride is on the line the signs are dangerous
Hands too number to feel wrapped around the wheel
Tonight they face the fact some are never coming back
Silhouettes in Disguise leather hearts lawless eyes
Dancing shadows over rock and under fire
Some will cry table's turned.
Some will die but none will learn
Silhouettes in Disguise crash and burn.
They pick the time and place then they fall from grace
They're riding on a rail trying to chase the dragon
Engines never cool trade their sins for fuel
That's what they're running on
When they're blown to kingdom come
Silhouettes in Disguise leather hearts lawless eyes
Dancing shadows over rock and under fire
Some will cry table's turned.
Some will die but none will learn
Silhouettes in Disguise crash and burn.
Silhouettes in danger on the wrong side of the tracks
Eye to eye. Eye to eye.
Rising up in anger. Disguising their attacks
On the edges of the world.
Silhouettes in Disguise leather hearts lawless eyes
Dancing shadows over rock and under fire
Some will cry table's turned.
Some will die but none will learn
Silhouettes in Disguise crash and burn.

Sometimes a smile can deceive the one who has made you promise
Suddenly you can't believe, the truth only leaves you cold
Sometimes the answers you fear are there on the face in the mirror
Something the world needs to hear but no one is even listening

Power it takes power power it takes power
To back up the things you say
Power it takes power power it takes power
To cut through the chains breakaway

Fortune can wear a disguise pride is a grand illusion
And when it's your name up in lights fate proves this one conclusion
Sometimes the answers you fear are there on the face in the mirror
Something the world needs to hear the truth only leaves you cold

Power it takes power power it takes power
To back up the things you say
Power it takes power power it takes power
To cut through the chains breakaway
Power it takes power power it takes power
To fight back and not be afraid
Power it takes power power it takes power
To cut through the chains breakaway

All that you see someday will be
Lost in the shadows of time
Mountains must fall someday this all
Will be darkness where light used to shine
All I wanted

You say it's time to stay behind
All I wanted was to hold you
All I wanted was to touch you

No need for blame cause we're not the same
All I wanted was to love you
That's all I wanted

How many times will it take
Hurting me the way you do
How many times till I break
You're hurting me the way I'm loving you the way I do

It's not so strange for us to change
All I wanted was to love you that's all I wanted

How many times will it take
Hurting me the way you do
How many times till I break
You're hurting me the way

I'm loving you the way I do

You don't mind giving in to temptation as long as no one knows
Your midnight invitation where your madness flows
Fires of passion rage all night angels falling out of the light

control undercover you can paralyze
Every love is one more victim they never realize
All their desires burn like a fever
They want to run but they just can't leave her

secret service secret service
Do they know how you scream
Secret service passion - hunger
Do they know how you scream

I should have seen through her disguise she was a masquerade
Cold kiss hungry eyes then she began to fade
Feeling lost I want to be found
Heaven's in hell don't look down

secret service secret service
Do they know how you scream
Secret service secret service

do they know how you cry can they see your dreams
Have they heard you sigh
Or do you save it all for me in your secret service

It was the wrong direction
I got way behind searching inside everybody trying to find
My own reflection

But I got something to say so get out of my way
'Cause I'm not all alone anymore
Better sound the alarm Stand your ground Raise your arm
'Cause you're not all alone anymore

I got out of control I figured there was a lock on rock and roll
And I lost the combination
But you better beware I'm used and abused I got nothing to lose
And I'm back from my vacation

But I got something to say so get out of my way
'Cause I'm not all alone anymore
Better sound the alarm Stand your ground Raise your arm
'Cause you're not all alone anymore

Stand up We're not alone anymore
Stand up
Look up We're not alone anymore
Look Up

But I got something to say so get out of my way
'Cause I'm not all alone anymore
Better sound the alarm Stand your ground Raise your arm
'Cause you're not all alone anymore

The world began to change the children moved and they had children
It was all arranged you couldn't live there anymore
All you had was that old place in the middle of the path of progress
So they took the space and put the ceiling on the floor
In one of the rooms all the walls were blue
It was hidden so well that no one knew
Just the place for taking in the view

The View of the sea crisp and clear and neverending
There your soul ran free there you spirit soared
The View took you away to the boundaries of imagination
Back to yesterday back to once before
In one of the rooms all the walls were blue
A mysterious space without a clue
Just the place for taking in the View

Long lives need no fortune
Hard lives need no fame
Young lives seek their freedom
And old lives seek the same

The world began to change and without a word of explanation
Something very strange started beckoning to you
When they came to mvoe your things you had packed a suitcase full of memories
Nothing else to bring except a different point of View
In one of the rooms all the walls were blue
A mysterious space without a clue
Just the place for taking in the View

orchestrator: Andrew Powell
writer: Billy Greer, Steve Walsh, Steve Morse
Three pretenders forced their entry
There wasn't time to defend or attack
Somewhere inside I held their fury
But one by one my defenses began to crack

The first became a voice from my childhood
Without a world to call his own
Asking questions but doubting the answers
And too confused to stand up and face it alone

I can feel my body tremble
Like an animal under the gun
Can you feel your body tremble
Look in and see the eyes of Three Pretenders

The second came a shadowy hustler
Selling anything not nailed to the groud
He put a price on my resistance
And if it's high, I know he'll be marking it down

The third became a mysterious traveller
Stormy words like sea-weathered sails
His life was scarred with peaks and valleys
A haunted kingdom crumbling against the gales

I can feel my body tremble
Like a child afraid of the dark
Can you feel your body tremble
Look in and see the eyes of Three Pretenders

Tomb 19 was sacred 1000 years or more
The Mayan king was restless a curse upon the door
His shrouds of royal fabric his journey to be made
To offer spirits good and evil 14 beads of sale

The jade had ancient power or so beliefs allege
To anyone who plundered they would drive him to the edge

If you take the treasures of Tomb 19
Let the curse remind you
Take the treasures of Tomb 19
But never look behind you

1000 years could come and go but we would never change
It doesn't matter how we try our hearts remain the same
You see how quickly distance grows close your eyes and it appears
And we've pretended long enough no more time no more tears

I just can't cry I can't cry anymore
While you throw our lives away
I just can't cry I can't cry anymore
While you throw our lives away Throw them away

Something happened long ago and we grew apart
We turned our heads the other way and so we turned our hearts
But girl I'm not blaming you and I'm not blaming me
It's just the way the story goes We grew up but separately

I just can't cry I can't cry anymore
While you throw our lives away
I just can't cry I can't cry anymore
While you throw our lives away Throw them away
