FIREPROOF (remastered version) - The Lyrics


DETONATE MY DREAMS (C. McLaughlin)

Endless train of thought running through my mind Things aren`t what they seem in these treacherous times Currents shift We swim against the tide Unbelievers dressed in smiling suede Can`t fill the void Can`t dull the blade All counterfeit and gimcrack cheats selling the truth! This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high Fascination feeds on jagged lives With a silver palm and a bunch of fives Setting your feet on a one way street It`s a road to ruin! This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high Detonate my dreams Detonate my dreams Turning back the clock reverse in time Talking sideways with no reason or rhyme All by themselves in a private hell The chosen few This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high This generation knows it This desolation shows it This detonation can lift you high

CATCH A FIRE (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

I`ve got a new lease of life My spirits are high I`m on course for the time of my life I`ve had to search to find So I`ve ducked and dived Through the flim flam that`s been flung my way Second guessing is fine But you should take my advice Don`t turn your back on what you know to be true Black lies make your white lies darker Black lies make your white lies darker I want to kiss the sky if I can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands What I`ve found is so good Make you shake in your shoes Leave you buzzing like a cheap TV Take you out of this world Might make your blood curdle Open doors and set your freedom free I want to kiss the sky if I can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands Got a new gift of sight so clear and so bright That leaves me dazzled like a newborn child I sensed a soar A glide across some great divide That left me speechless in the light of day I want to kiss the sky and I can reach that high Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire in my burning hands Catch a fire Catch a fire

LAST OF THE TRUE BELIEVERS (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

A million moonbeams That shine throughout the night Lines that can trip you up Disguised and out of sight You`ll sense before you see And when push comes to shove Find out when it`s too late Too much is not enough Mirages disappear Transparent in the night Firefrozen destiny Grows warm and should ignite Imagination pales And when the countdown starts Obstacles start to shake and fall apart Here I am The last of the true believers Here I am The last of the true believers Taking time To chase my dreams once more Life`s best kept secrets The target`s in my sights So much that keeps me up Inspired to scale new heights All points eventually to Shooting stars that melt A million frozen heartbeats Here I am I am the last of the true believers Here I am The last of the true believers Taking time To chase my dreams once more I am the last of the true believers I am the last of the true believers I am the last of the true believers The last of the true believers The last of the true believers Articulate your rage Through times that squeeze this tight Our chosen destiny is cool and should excite We`ll face it all head on And when the breakdown starts All fears will rot and shake and fall apart Here I am - the last of the true believers Here I am - the last of the true believers Taking time To chase my dreams once more Believer Believer Believer I believe I believe I believe Believer Believer Believer I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe I believe Believer

TOO LATE BLUES (R. O`Gormain / D. O`Néill)

How can you lead your life Feeling no fright nor fear How can you lose so fast That`s something not too clear I`ve found that look without you Nothing soiled nor pure `Cos what you need to see`s an everchanging world I`ve seen that look in your own eyes How in hell can you pretend Surprise Nothing`s the same yet nothing`s changed Feel forever blowing in the sky Could you have tried to love me Desire seemed so real I saw that need inside you Why feel so unsure Heightened and flat out senses stalling once again Words read too often pleasures dying once again I`ve seen that look in your own eyes How in hell can you pretend Surprise Nothing`s the same yet nothing`s changed Feel forever blowing in the sky So all frustration heartache`s been left behind Seems all I can remember Is the lies lies lies cold lies I feel empty I feel dark yet there`s a spark That lights this darkness deep inside That fights this darkness deep inside That lights this darkness deep inside How How

7TH WAVE (C. McLaughlin)

Heart murmur still of night Waiting for day The cool and the light Catch the seventh wave Words that taste so sweet Day hardly breathes Feelings ferment and flood Torch tomorrow`s fears Things that amaze me Blind and daze me are few and far between Guessing games dull your aim But I feel close to ecstatic To ecstatic Simple twist of fate Kindles the fuse Falling into place Solving all the clues Heart murmur still of night Waiting for day The cool and the light Catch the seventh wave Things that amaze me Blind and daze me Are few and far between Guessing games dull your aim But I feel close to ecstatic To ecstatic

INFINITE THRILL (C. McLaughlin)

Velvet glove and laundered bills Happiness in poison pills This sleight of hand can tie us all in knots Wiseblood count is low and might just clot Second chances don`t exist Miracles must not be missed Days can smoulder crimson into night Promises that stretch without requite Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and heaven sent Heaven sent It`s an infinite thrill Such an infinite thrill Tantalise with just one taste All emotion is unlaced No more searching seeking high and low Second best to nothing that I know Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and Dizzy infinite thrill Girlsoul overspills Radiate recreate Those chromosomes are honeycombed and heaven sent Heaven sent Heaven sent Heaven sent Infinite thrill Such an infinite thrill

SPEED OF LIGHT (C. McLaughlin)

Tired of hanging round Shangri-la is burning down I`m not going to play Waiting games Hating games all the same If we`re not out by tomorrow we`ll be lost in space Look around this town Overactive upside down They don`t even know they`re alive You and I`ll take a dive Accidentally on purpose disappear Out of sight out of mind We can sparkle and shine every night And I know you by heart we can make a new start Getting out at speed of light Tired of hanging round Shangri-la is burning down They don`t even know they`re alive You and I`ll take a dive Accidentally on purpose disappear Out of sight out of mind We can sparkle and shine every night And I know you by heart we can make a new start Getting out at speed of light Out of sight out of mind We can sparkle and shine every night And I know you by heart we can make a new start Getting out at speed of light La-lala La-lala La-lala

SHANGRI-LA (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

Picture a world of your own deepest wishes I know it`s secrets of delights so delicious You sense the words that will weaken my resistance Lighter than air total magical existence Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling of all Magnetic lips radiant and luminescent Deep summer nights shimmering and phosphorescent Dazzling allure that leads on in one direction Pleasure of love feeding on this sweet confection Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling Sweetest feeling of all Picture a world of your own deepest wishes I know it`s secrets of delights so delicious Shangri-la You`re my keeper Shangri-la The sweetest feeling of all Sweetest feeling Sweetest feeling of all Mesmerise me shangri-la Mesmerise me shangri-la Mesmerise me shangri-la Mesmerise me shangri-la

HEARTBEAT MOSAIC (R. O`Gormain / D. O`Néill)

Love`s rhythms Can trace what memory has dissolved Silhouettes and daydreams Moonbeams and maybes cloak them all In the common currency of the heart and soul Of the heart and soul Heartbeat mosaic still waits and whispers Fills you with promise and wonder Let me drink in it`s vast emotions And sunkissed oceans That make me feel so real Like lullabies you treasure And never measure the depth of hope Vignettes and visions Cool streams of pleasure cloak them all In the common currency of the heart and soul Of the heart and soul Heartbeat mosaic still waits and whispers Fills you with promise and wonder Let me drink in it`s vast emotions And sunkissed oceans That make me feel so real Love`s rhythms Can trace what memory has dissolved Silhouettes and daydreams Moonbeams and maybes cloak them all In the common currency of the heart and soul Of the heart and soul Heartbeat mosaic still waits and whispers Fills you with promise and wonder Let me drink in it`s vast emotions And sunkissed oceans That make me feel so real

METAL MYSTERY (R. O`Gormain / C. McLaughlin)

I have dreams of better times to come I`d like to voice them show how my feelings run Black clouds there to trip me up False horizons there to mix you up You`re caught and frenzied behind your front door You know the score Psychobabble metal mystery Setting fire to forgotten history Every dog has it`s day Chewing on razorblades But you can`t teach a zealot how to pray You`re always sucking up and spitting down Brains to burn and a head that`s underground But all in all you know you just don`t care Those hollow voices can`t make you scared Follow the rhythm of metal mystery Every dog has it`s day Chewing on razorblades But you can`t teach a zealot how to pray Black clouds there to trip you up False horizons there to mix you up Follow the rhythm of metal mystery I`ve wasted time in places you`ve never been I`ve sweated blood over people who are not my scene Every dog has it`s day Chewing on razorblades But you can`t teach a zealot how to pray Every dog has it`s day Chewing on razorblades But you can`t teach a zealot how to pray
