Victim of the System

TEXTY

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



1. Victim Of The System


Living in the city where the poverty prevails
Sleeping on the side walk you can hear the sirens wail
Dining with the rats down on 42nd street
Begging for some money, hungry for something to eat


Wasted and falling through the cracks
Dying while lying on your back


VICTIM OF THE SYSTEM

Freezing by the fire while you're chilling to the bone
Faceless in the crowd
And there's no place you call home
Crazy from the heat and lost in deep despair
Is there no solution, doesn't anybody care?


Can't get your feet back on the ground
Can't you hear your voice, you can't be found


Victim of the system, there's no place you can go
Stranded by your country, left here on your own


Victim of the system, isn't a pity
Victim of the system, living in the city


[solo]


Wanted and falling through the cracks
Dying while lying on your back


Victim of the system there's no place you can go
Left here by your country, left here on your own


Victim of the system isn't it a pity?
Victim of the system living in the city

2. Visual Prison




I'm watching you at home from my prison cell alone
Trapped here inside my visual prison


Deadly stare into the monitor screen
Mesmerized by the latest scenes
Switching channels from the ends of the earth
Comatose by the thoughts received


Visual Prison
I'm trapped inside my visual prison
The whole world's alive from my field of vision

Main attraction from across the sea
To the wars in the holy land
Chain reaction from a satellite
My remote controller's in my hand


Visual Prison
I'm trapped inside my visual prison
The whole world's alive from my field of vision


I've got you in my sight
You're on my screen tonight
You're in my field of vision


[solo]

See life passing on the monitoring screen
The world so small pictured here at my feet
Visual decline etched upon my mind
Trapped here inside my prison


I'm trapped inside my visual prison
The whole world's alive from my field of vision


Visual, visual prison
I'm trapped inside my field of vision
Visual prison, yea, visual prison
I've got you in my sight
Visual prison

4. Cross To Bear


Everybody's got their cross to bear
The cards were dealt, life ain't fair
It's what you do with what you got
You can cry a little you can give a lot
There's always something to share
The miracle of love is all you need
To break the chains, to set you free
And lately, I see, the loneliness will fade


Falling, like a river from your eyes
See the tears roll down, another victim of the night
How far will people go?
How long until it shows
That we've been hiding from the light?


I want to know what love always meant to be
Cuz I've been blinded by the lie
I've come this far to find I don't know what I need
Everyone's got their cross to bear


Calling, in the middle of the night
When you need a friend, cuz something ain't right
Your heart is bought and sold
And now it leaves you cold


I want to know what love always meant to be
Cuz I've been blinded by the lie
I've come this far to find I don't know what I need
Everyone's got their cross to bear

[solo]

The cards were dealt, and life's unfair
Everybody's got their cross to bear


Cross to bear
Cross to bear
Everybody's got their cross to bear

5. The Young And The Ruthless


It doesn't really matter to the kid any more
No it doesn't really matter at all
It doesn't really matter to the kid any more
No it doesn't, doesn't, doesn't


Little Stevie's got a Forty-seven
Got one thing on his mind
And he's boasting all the time
Making it clear he's got nothing to fear
When he's running with the pack
Rushing down the street
He might not make it back


The young and the ruthless
The young and the ruthless


Every night in the city lights
See the murder in the streets
Homicide is the latest craze
You can do it on the screen
Senseless killings in a brutal wave
Another mindless crime
Violence is their point of view
In a twisted state of mind


The young and the ruthless
With nothing to fear
The young and the ruthless
With nothing to fear
The young and the ruthless
With nothing to fear
