SCANNER LYRICS

Album: "Terminal Earth" (1990)

 

1. The Law

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

They ride across the mountains
Over their God-given land
Following their destination
Independent barons
Fight behind their king
With a sword in their hands' back to back

The law

People pray
When they ride into nowhere

One dies for all
Dyin' for glory
This was the law of the sword
And
All die for one
Dyin' for glory
A law that was sold for some gold

They were forced to look straight
Into the eye of the storm
Superior forces were waiting
There was a rear man
A traitor to the nation
The odds were not even anymore

The law

People pray
When they ride into nowhere

One dies for all
Dyin' for glory
This was the law of the sword
And
All die for one
Dyin' for glory
A law that was sold for some gold

Thousands were biting
The dust for some glory
In the blood of their horses they stood
For an unreal solution
For sanctification
An order mandatious divine

The law

People pray
When they ride into nowhere

One dies for all
Dyin' for glory
This was the law of the sword
And
All die for one
Dyin' for glory
A law that was sold for some gold

The law
The law
The law
The law

That was sold for some gold

 

2. Not Alone

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

There'll be times
When we'll conquer the sky
We'll fly to every star
As ambassadors

We'll be a few
Out of a million minds
For the first encounters

We are not alone
They watch us and hear our voices
We are not alone
We have no choice

We can reach
Out for eternity
Where other creatures live
Somewhere in the endless space

We believe
In our holy right
To be the only one
Unique God's creation

 

3. Wonder

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

Emptiness inside my purse
And in my pockets too
Hell, I guess there is a giant-hole
Where all the cash falls through

All I need
All I need's a wonder
I need a wonder

I need a new microphone
A pair of leather boots
Tell me
How can I play my next metal show
And save me from surrender

Some days I dream
Someone would beam
A giant heap of money straight for me

I need a wonder
Wonder to rescue me
I need a wonder
Wonder to save my soul
I need a wonder
Wonder to save me from a fall
I need a wonder
A wonder to rescue me from fallin'

Millions of guys around the world
Havin' the same dream
Tryin' to live rock 'n'roll
And get into the scene

Waitin' months and years to play
In always changing bands
Other guys do serious work
Earn money with their hands

I need a wonder
Wonder to rescue me
I need a wonder
Wonder to save my soul
I need a wonder
Wonder to save me from a fall
I need a wonder
A wonder to rescue me from fallin'

 

4. Buy Or Die

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

Alice has planned her shopping day
She takes the bus, goes downtown
She'll have to give all her money away
To buy all the nice things around

See 'em on a shopping tour
30 elderly ladies
Blankets and pillows and pills for the brain
Other little somethings

No matter how you can pay
Cash or credit
Calculate what you can afford
Before you

Buy or die
Prices can rise every day / every hour
Buy or die
You are forced to consume
Buy or die
Prices can rise for the goods you desire
Buy or die
Feel like Alice in woolworthland

All the heavy metal fans
Go to see a live show
Merchandise odds ‘n ends
Keep the money goin’

No matter how you can pay
Cash or credit
Calculate what you can afford
Before you

Buy or die
Prices can rise every day / every hour
Buy or die
You are forced to consume
Buy or die
Prices can rise for the goods you desire
Buy or die
Feel like Alice in woolworthland
woolworthland

Housewives run into the store
Rush and run from door to door
Special offers advertised

No matter how you pay
Cash or credit
Calculate what you can afford
Before you

Buy or die
Prices can rise every day / every hour
Buy or die
You are forced to consume
Buy or die
Prices can rise for the goods you desire
Buy or die
You are forced to consume
Buy or die
Prices can rise every day / every hour
Buy or die
forced to consume
Buy or die
Prices can rise for the goods you desire
Buy or die
Feel like Alice in woolworthland

 

5. Telemania

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

Pictures creep into your living-room
Glimmering blue light from a screen
Find yourself under the influence
Staring eyes and empty head

You've got

Telemania
There is no cure
For your
Telemania
Brains are not insured
Against
Telemania
No. 1
Western world's disease

20 Channels by remote control
Choice enough without a move
Independence of the cable-net
Satellite upon your roof

You can order
You can buy
You can learn the latest way to die
You've got informations
You can learn or pray
So I guess you don't like what I say :

You've got

Telemania
There is no cure
For your
Telemania
Brains are not insured
Against
Telemania
No. 1
Disney Land's disease

 

6. Touch The Light

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

They came down late at night
Like rain over the land
No one knew of their existence
If he read no tales

Caught our minds tied to our brains
With visible chains
When they met the men in grey
The contract had been signed

One day if they cross your way
Don't believe a word they say
They're not creatures of the day
Afraid to touch the light

Giving them no chance
To realize their plans
They want to rule the earth
By the fruits of work

You are not allowed to rest
First you have to pass the test
As long as your heart beats in your breast

Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Save the frozen time
Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Only you can save the time

Time will stop a certain day
That's the chance to find a way
Only Mr. Hora knows
How to stop their fights

If you meet the men in grey
Don't believe a word they say

Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Save the frozen time
Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Only you can save the time

Heads will be rollin'
When you touch the flower
They will decay to dust in this hour
One little girl
She can sweep all their power
Aside

Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Save the frozen time
Touch the light with your hands
You're the only one
Touch the light with your hands
Only you can save the time

 

7. Terminal Earth

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

Our mission is done
And our time has come
All the stars are calling us back

But we can't leave
Ever again
Our starship won't start anymore

Never again
Will we see our home
Never again our system
Our bodies have changed
And if we approached
Disintegration would start

Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Now we are caught
Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Can we survive
Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Now we are caught
Now we can save our minds and our hope
Can we survive on
Terminal Earth

We cam to prove
And to research
To tell people all about Earth

We've been so sure
We'd leave again
Now we are filled with despair

Forced to deal
With your life and your fears
Of poisoned waters and air
Afraid of death
In a nuclear war
Our journey has come to an end

On Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Now we are caught
Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Can we survive
Terminal Earth caught in a trap
Now we are caught
Now we can save our minds and our hope
Can we survive on
Terminal Earth

 

8. From The Dust Of Ages

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

We're surrounded, there's no escape
Landed on a world, attacked by gods who sent a storm
Now the waters rise so unbelievably
And vulcans spit a holy fire and destroy
Spit it and destroy

We traveled through the time
To spread the human seed
Wherever we've been seen
We disappeared in mystery

We came to see how people fight
The Gods who sent eternal night
We're the last
We came to late to stop the stream of time

Can it be a lack of pride, a lack of honor
Can it be a plan that is divine
Can in be a lack of pride, a lack of honor
Can this be mistakes that are divine

Welcome
Reborn in another dimension
Where unknown colors and noises are bringin' you tension
Welcome
Step through the halls of disaster
Work till you bleed and obey your invisible master

Missin' the moon in the night
Finding yourself for a world of violet light

Welcome home from the dust of ages
Welcome home from the dust of time
We don't know if we'll leave some traces
The world that we've known disappears
In the dust of time

The world will end with surrender
The civilization's destroyed
And all things we know will disappear in the end
We live in a mystery world

Welcome home from the dust of ages
Welcome home from the dust of time
We don't know if we'll leave some traces
The world that we've known disappears
In the dust of time

Atlantis was an island, so the story's told
Where the Gods melted fire with a storm
Atlantis was a garden, so beautiful divine
Where mankind has been given its first home
So beautiful divine
Atlantis

 

9. The Challenge

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

They live in countries
With different names
Their works done by mysterious machines

Burn their resources
Exploit mother earth
the next generation will bleed

Strange is this world
Strange are these folks

So many languages
Expressin' the same
Spirits that borders can't change

Gigantic walls of ignorance
They built to keep areas clean

Strange world
Strange folks

One more challenge for mankind
A challenge to fight
A challenge to live
To build and create a new world

One more challenge for mankind
A challenge to trust
In their strength to survive
As long as there's choice to decide

Different uniforms
Different regimes
Colors for honor and pride

Blood is the color
That all people bleed
If some of their leaders decide

 

10. L.A.D.Y.

(Lyrics by S. L. Coe)

Went to a gay-club
Sent by a friend of mine
He knew a little lady
Waitin' for me inside

I said, ";Man, don't be kiddin'!";
I don't want to change my style
Could not believe my eyes when
I saw who I have found

Lady, tell me what to do
What can I do
Lady, I need a doctor
To help me to cure
My longin' for you

See you later
That's what she said to me
I could not believe that she gave me her key
See you later
The only fact I know
I can't let her go
See you later

Like a cat in a lonesome alley
Like a wolf in a midnight town
I've been struck down by confusion
Straight here in my heart
