Soul Protection
('Outland' album, 1991)

Johnny's got a job
Spreading the cure
Self employed
He's a one man crusade

We want to give you your soul protection

Something inside
Big mistake
Spread the word
To the new generation

We want to give you your soul protection

One more night
One more dream
One more time
One more scream
One more heart
One more name
One more chance
For your soul protection

Johnny's got pride
'I'll pay it all back'
Now he calls it
'The poetry of motion'

Listen to this
This is life
Listen to your heart
And you're living under clock law

We want to give you your soul protection

Hide your fear
Hide your shame
Hide your tears
And hide your pain
Hide your face
Hide your name
Hide your need
For your soul protection

Everyone's scared
Big glass house
Don't throw stones
At your soul protection

Johnny's got faith
Prays to God
Mention love
And he calls it 'nostalgia'

We want to give you your soul protection


Confession
('Outland' album, 1991)

Listen up
This is confession
This machine motion is sure to break my heart

Listen up
This is confession
Recorded music sticks in the throat of God

IOU you don't own me
IOU you don't own me
Party time, one more night, everybody's affected

Listen up
This is confession
You are a poison that flows into my veins

Listen up
This is confession
I've never been so scared of letting you down

You know me, so come closer
You know me, so come closer
Party time, one more town, everybody's affected

I know you, you don't need me
I know you, you don't need me
Party time, one more girl, everybody's affected

Listen up
This is confession
They tell me heaven just has to be somewhere

Listen up
This is confession
I'd lie to God if I could make him believe

You owe me, and I need you
You owe me, and I need you
Party time, one more game, everybody's affected

This is my confession
This is my confession
Party time, one more lie, everybody's affected


My World Storm
('Outland' album, 1991)

This is new vengence

I like noise
I suck art
I like romance
When it's in my car
This is new vengence

I like games
I like you
I like pressure
If it hurts them too
This is new vengence

I'll do it, I can do it
I'll take it, if I want it
I'll say it, if I feel it
I'll have it, if I need it

I sold out
No shit
Don't need approval
And I don't need this
This is new vengence

I like cars
I like fame
I like people when they call my name
This is new vengence

I'll burn your picture
I'll burn your house down
I'll change your world then
I'll listen to reason


Dream Killer
('Outland' album, 1991)

So I've seen my future
And I've seen dream killers
And I've seen you every time

So I've heard opinions
And I've heard dark rumours
And I've heard you every time

You hurt my feelings
You hurt my family
You hurt my reason to try
I can't forgive you
I will remember
I'll pay you back one cold day

So I've seen my weakness
And I've seen my heart break
And I've seen you every time

You lied to father
You lied to mother
You lied to brother and me
I used to dream, now
I forget how to
So should I learn how to lie?

You take my picture
you take my ghosts and laugh
You take my reason
You take my soul away
You take my heartbeat
You take my innocence
You take my dreams and
You'll take my life away

So now I'm old news
And you would change me
But I'm so tired of this
There is no comfort
In fame when it dies
And I'm so tired of it


Dark Sunday
('Outland' album, 1991)

You're like poison
You smile at me
Talk of love
'He' will forgive you
If I confess

Your dark Sunday
You lied to me
And so I
Replaced God
With a picture of my car

I don't like this
I don't like this

I'm on the E kick
So heaven's in my head
I'm in Outland
Shame on me

I want pictures
People come, people go
D'you think God
Will forgive me soon?

You won't like this
You won't like this

Rip it up
Rip it in to pieces
Rip it up
Rip it up good

Touch me, touch me

He won't like this
He won't like this

'He' won't touch me
I can't dance and I can't sing
I'm not stone shape
But time runs out

I don't like this
All I see is cold and hard
All I can do now is break 'The Word'

I don't like this
I don't like this

'He' will love me
Well thank you
For nothing
I need that
Like I need a disease

So pray for me
I don't mind
I don't care
I've found love
It's an American machine

I don't like this
I don't like this


Outland
('Outland' album, 1991)

I'm in Outland
Sex tension
She whispers things I need

Look in her heart
Slow motion
'I've been expecting you'

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything

I'm in Outland
Storm my heart
Tear me up if you like

Come closer
Say nothing
I've got something for you

I shape sound
I shape time
I'll shape your world for you

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything

I'm in Outland
Emotion
Dark whispers in my head

Got the sex scream
On new film
I've got the friend I need

Don't play safe
Don't play games
Don't play if you can't lose

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything


Heart
(Single, 'Outland' album, 1991)

Does she make you laugh?
Does she make you cry?
Does she call your name?
Let me tell you why

Have you ever tried to look into her eyes?
Have you ever tried to look into her heart?

There is no-one home
Time will heal you
Time heals everything
Just an empty room
Time will help you
Time helps you forget
There's no tears for you
Time will heal you
Time heals everyone
There's no heart at all
Time will help you
Time helps you forget me

She will change your world
She will change your mind
She will change your rules
She will make you blind

You will never try to look into her eyes
You will never try to look into her heart

See there's no-one home
Time will heal you
Time heals everything
See an empty room
Time will help you
Time helps you forget
See no tears for you
Time will heal you
Time heals everyone
See no heart at all
Time will help you
Time helps you forget me

I'll leave you
You'll try to forget
I'll haunt you
Like someone haunts me
I'll leave you
You'll try to forgive
I'll haunt you
Like someone haunts me

Does she laugh at you
Like she laughs at me?
Does she break your heart
Like she broke mine?

From Russia Infected
('Outland' album, 1991)

Seen the man?
New disease
Everybody's infected

Seen the man?
He'll storm your heart
Everybody believes

Seen the man?
Sly new game
Kiss another cute baby

Seen the man?
No war machine
So everybody wants peace?

Everybody's infected
Everybody believes

I've been looking for something
But it just gets harder
I could look forever
What am I gonna do?

Storm the heart
Boy threw up
Everybody's disgusted

Storm the heart
Girl went down
Everybody looked shocked

Storm the heart
New young thing
Everybody's obsession

Storm the heart
'Levi' jean
Think it's cool to kill

Everybody's infected
Everybody believes

One more reason
One more lie

Dreams are cruel
This is life
It replaced religion

Change your mind
make it mine
Everybody looks sad

Dirty film
Ten years old
This is Russia infected

Party time
Time runs out
Everybody go home

Everybody's infected
Everybody believes

Devotion
('Outland' album, 1991)

Charm up
Strange down
Old face, new sound
Same kick, same pain
Same reason, same game so

Dance, let's move

I can't dance, I can't sing
I'm too old, I'm too thin so?
Motion, I'm in love
One night's enough so

Dance, let's move

You can play
You can lose
You can't win
I'm still looking for rhythm
You can choose

Move up, I don't like this motion
Move out, I don't like this feeling
Move up, I don't need devotion
Move out, I don't need a reason

'And I'm still looking for the rhythm'


Whisper
('Outland' album, 1991)

I wonder if at times
You ever think of me
Or even call my name
I don't suppose you do

They talk of rain
They talk of time
They talk of pain
They talk of mine

They whisper names
They whisper news
They whisper 'Shame'
They whisper you

I tried to look for you
I tried for years and years
I wonder if you knew?
I don't suppose you cared

'I leave old memories
Ghosts in hearts like yours
I left your words unheard
Like whispers in my heart'

I think of tears
I think of who?
I think of years
I think of you


Shame

I've done things God should not question
But I don't care.
I've seen things that made my flesh crawl
But I was young.
I've said things that you believed in
But I don't mean.
I heard things, one more confession that
Leaves me cold.

My picture ashames you
My picture
My picture ashames me
My picture

This ain't love, this ain't affection
But you don't care.
This ain't need, I'm not the fashion
So leave my heart.
So good God were you mistaken
Now will I burn?
No more lies no more distraction
So pay you back.

Religion ashames you
Religion
Religion ashames me
Religion

I'm lying shame on me
(secrets forever)
This disease shame on me
(secrets forever)
My memories shame on me
(secrets forever)
Abandon,abandon me
(secrets forever)

This fashion ashames you
This fashion
This passion ashames me
This passion

I'll never ashame you
I'll never ashamed me.

A stranger, shame on me
(secrets forever)
Nostalgia, shame on me
(secrets forever)
Religion, shame on me
(secrets forever)
Abandon, abandon me.

I've done things God should not question
But I don't care.


Icehouse

This is
Ice house
I've seen the guards and the danger
I've seen
Some things
I'll remember if I live forever

I don't need dream killers
I don't need your pictures
I don't need heroes (This is ice house)

I don't need opinions
I don't need religion
I don't need heroes (Don't break my heart)

I'll use
The trick
It hurts but I'm thinking clearly
You buy
We sell
Recorded speeches in the throat of your god

I don't need dream killers
I don't need your pictures
I don't need heroes (This is ice house)

I don't need opinions
I don't need religion
I don't need heroes (Don't break my heart)

Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart

Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart
Don't break my heart

I don't need dream killers
I don't need your pictures
I don't need heroes (This is ice house)

I don't need opinions
I don't need religion
I don't need heroes (Don't break my heart)

Wrong place
Wrong time
The American dream's sure to save me
One more
Mistake
So this is the art of survival

I don't need dream killers
I don't need your pictures
I don't need heroes (This is ice house)

I don't need opinions
I don't need religion
I don't need heroes (Don't break my heart)

I don't need dream killers
I don't need your pictures
I don't need heroes (This is ice house)

I don't need opinions
I don't need religion
I don't need heroes (Don't break my heart)


Tread Careful

Tread careful
Because you're treading on my dreams
Tread careful
Because I've just one heart
Tread careful
Let me down slowly
Or I'll forget our dreams

I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)

Tread careful
You'll hear the sound of my breathing
Tread careful
Because I feel the sound
Tread careful
I'm falling in a glass house
I'm trying hard to forgive

Because the wanting gets harder
Tread careful
Before I change my mind
Tread careful
I could surprise you
I'll learn something you won't know

I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)

I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)
I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)

Tread careful
I'm sure you don't care but
Tread careful
I could change your mind
Tread careful
I'll be waiting for you
There is no calm in here

I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)
I won't forget anything
(I won't know)
I won't forgive anyone
(You and me)
