Lyrics for the album Thunderdome


Thunderdome
(Boge/Frazier/Lauvdal/Moren)

lightning flashes the masses cry
from the shadows a man steps in the light
armed and ready he stands and waits
two men enter but one will not escape-or decide his fate

shotgun messiah is justice served
spin the wheel and you take your turn
faded line between right and wrong
in this place called thunderdome

in the thunder-thunderdome

hero, killer, soldier, thief
fighting just to get the things he needs-’cause nothing’s free
savage pressure that never ends
beaten and tired it seems he cannot win-he’ll never ever win

suddenly he explodes in rage
world ignites and a price is paid
every challenge has come and gone
in this place called thunderdome

run so far still there’s no place to go
no escape from this violent show
sell your soul just to find a way home
this place called thunderdome

in the thunder-thunderdome
two men enter one man leave-in the thunderdome
better hold on to what you believe-in the thunderdome
two men enter one man leave-in the thunderdome
razor sharp is the will to live-in the thunderdome

there is only one answer in this game
and i’m sure that word’s not hate…


Chasing The Rainbow
(Boge/Lauvdal/Moren/Zerener)

my body’s cold my steps are slow
a blackened mind i’m feeling low
taste of wine and cheap perfume
telling me it’s time to leave this room
trembling hands light a cigarette
this wasted life it hasn’t killed me yet
it hasn’t killed me yet
mama i’m coming home…

out on the road the thunder rolls
i’m flying high my engine roars
just like a breeze i’m blowing in
another town another sin
i told my ma there’s something to be found
each night she prays for her son to settle down
but ma i don’t know where i’m bound

i’d give it all up for love
you know i can’t let go

stop chasing the rainbow
get yourself in from the cold
stop chasing the rainbow
cursed with a wandering soul
stop chasing the rainbow
chasing the rainbow
there ain’t no pot of gold

left alone this broken heart
a shattered dream thought they never part
flashing out a warning sign
a dead end street but you were blind
wish i could stay try to understand
this way of life is getting out of hand
is getting out of hand

i’d give it all up for love
you know i can’t let go
i’d give it all up for love
but baby don’t let go don’t let go

stop chasing…

out on the road the thunder rolls
i’m flying high my engine roars
running from the spiders web
i’d rather die than a living dead
fight the demons in my head
they’ll never leave like my father said

i’d give….

stop chasing…


Powertool
(Boge/Lauvdal/Moren/Zerener)

come tell me brother is this the way we go
come tell me sister what do you know
there’s so many choices that has to be made
so many roads needing to be paved

it builds you high to break you down
someone is counting the score
addicted to slow dying you
leaving you crying for more

powertool ain’t nothing money can’t fool
treat you like a fool
ruled by powertool

please help me brother
i’m counting on you
i’m begging you sister
don’t know what to do
my conscience is weakened
don’t know how to choose
the deeds i am doing
leaves me searching for clues

it built me up it broke me down
it wants me to want me have more
and if i try to run away
the devil is counting the score

powertool… by the powertool

power keeps you satisfied
making you feel you’re alive
when money’s gone you’ll be alone
the king is left without his throne
answer me brother did you ever have to choose
come answer me sister did you win or loose

did it bring you up did it break you down
then who was counting the score
addicted to slow dying you
did it leave you crying for more

powertool…

ain’t nothing money can’t fool
power-powertool


Calling For You
(Boge)

you didn’t even wanna say goodbye
after all we had
our love was just a lie
oh lord i swear i tried
reaching out for you

never returned my calls
not even after all
what we’d been through
i tried to do it right
oh lord i’ve lost that fight
you and me are through

i’m still calling for you
calling for you
i’m still calling for you
calling for you

never returned my calls
not even after all
what we’d been through
i tried to do it right
oh lord i’ve lost that fight
you and me are through

i’m still calling for you
calling for you
i’m still calling for you
calling for you

calling for you - my sweet darling
after all that we’ve been through
i tried my best but it’s still no use
you didn’t even wanna say goodbye
now you’re gone, my sweet darling
calling for you


Wrong Side Of Town
(Benkestok/Boge)

i was bound to be the day that i was born
bound to be that son of someones son
i hear the sound of wings above my head-is it destiny
i don’t know it’s way above my head

the river is more than the water and sludge
it cuts through the town like a knife
the border is real although noone can see
i’ll carry it all through my life all through my life

i am living on the wrong side of town
we are living for the days that are yet to come
but when i look back on my kind
it just seems like there’s a million, there’s a million to one
living on the wrong side of town

just like you i need to feel complete
but i can’t afford to be discreet
find myself in the thick of it
this is my existence
i just can’t escape the cobwebs of my streets

left bank or right bank the soil is the same
when will the river run dry
it’s more than a busride from your street to mine
`cause trust is so hard to come by
it’s such a hard thing to come by

seems like i’m living on the wrong side of town
we are living for the days that are yet to come
but when i look back on my kind
it just seems like there’s a million, there’s a million to one
living on the wrong side -oh yes

i am living, yes i’m living on the wrong side of town
we are living for the days that are yet to come
but when i look back, when i look back on my kind
it just seems like there’s a million, there’s a million to one

i was bound to be the day that i was born
i was bound to be that son of someones son
i hear the sound of wings above my head
i don’t know it’s way above my head


Red Light District
(Benkestok/Boge)

walking down the alley by the hotel aviv
i see the human wreckage - dying while they live
deep down by the sewer, where the lights are scarlet red
the children make their livings, sweatin’in a creaky bed

lights are red your eyes are black and blue
the heroes of the heroin, gonna make a slave of you
is gonna make a slave of you
in the red light district, you gotta look around
in the red light district, that’s their only place in town
red light district, you gotta look around
in the red light district, that’s their only place in town

crawling from the suburbs, respectable indeed
the cannibal spends his money, discretions guaranteed
the crack of the whip, his paid submission trip
will see him through his daytime with a smile upon his lips

lights are red your eyes are black and blue
the heroes of the heroin, gonna make a slave of you
is gonna make a slave of you

in the red light district…

don’t you go down , deep down by the sewer
where the lights are scarlet red
it makes me really wonder why they call it making love
this trade of flesh and misery, is it a gift from up above
cracks down on the pavement, matching cracks upon the walls
the shadows by the bedside, those children see it all

in the red light district…don’t you go down

deep down by the sewer, where the lights are scarlet red
the children make their livings sweating in a creaky bed
cause it makes me really wonder why they call it makin love
this trade of flesh and misery- is it a gift from up above

you know deep down by the sewer,
where the lights are scarlet red


Stranger In The Night
(Boge/Müller/Renanger/Westlie)

born out in the east end on the mean side of the town
raised in an alley but it didn’t get me down
i was looking for a way out so weary of the fight
waiting for somebody that could help me find the light

lonely nights i keep on looking for you

stranger in the night-
make it alright
you got me running tonight

my heart is in danger how long can it last
where is my stranger i need her fast
lonely nights i keep on looking for you

stranger in the night-
make it alright
you got me running


Will I Ever Love Again
(Boge/Lauvdal/Moren)

will i ever love again
i’ve lost my faith in you
will i ever love again
i’ve lost my faith in you

will i ever try again
that ain’t because of you
will i ever try again
that ain’t because of you

can i ever trust again
so afraid of lovin’ you
can i ever trust again
so afraid of losing you
oh darling, there is no meaning in my life anymore

will i ever love again
i’ve lost my faith in you
will i ever love again
i’ve lost my faith in you

will i ever try again
no that ain’t because of you
will i ever try again
no that ain’t because of you

can i ever trust again
so afraid of lovin’ you
can i ever trust again
so afraid of losing you


Shadow Dance
(Boge/Zerener)

smalltown girl in a concrete world
the neon ligths are calling
the innocence of yesterday
turns to teardrops in the morning

i bet u tried to be someone
but city life is hit and run
somewhere between lost and found
lies a wasted dream knocked to the ground

louanne - caught up in your shadow dance
head in a trance-louanne
lost in a twilight romance
give love a chance-louanne

ease the seat back mister
are the keywords for your living
no heart no soul just so damn cold
just taking and no giving

i know you tried to be someone
but how long can you carry on
somewhere between lost and found
lies a wasted dream knocked to the ground
knocked to the ground

louanne - caught…

once i knew this little girl
said she loved me only
now she is a grown up girl
and we both are sad and lonely

louanne - caught…

louanne - caught…give love a chance and get out of your trance
louanne - caught up in your shadow dance
knocked to the ground - louanne
give love a chance and get out of your trance
won’t you give love a chance louanne


In The Mood (For Your Love)
(Boge/Frazier)

woke up this morning i was sweatin’ from the heat
half asleep i jumped right out of bed
last night an angel came to join me in my dreams
spread her wings and she just blew my head
high heels and attitude she worked on me all night
one day i’m in heaven, next in hell
i couldn’t help myself, she smiled and took her time
just so glad that i’m alive to tell

higher and higher -
gonna climb until i reach the highest stars up in the sky
dance in the moonlight-
’cause i’m cross the point of caring if i crash and burn tonight

i’m in the mood for your love babe…
i’m in the mood for your love

i’m tryin’ to stay awake i know that she is there
when i close my eyes and fall asleep
she’s waitin’ in the shadows i can feel her stare
hungry for another chance to meet

higher and higher -

higher and higher


Shine On
(Boge/Zerener)

don’t let the emptiness surround my head
please let the memory survive
recalling tears of joy and happiness
making believe it’s still alive

so damn easy knowing what to do
though it’s hard dreaming of you
no good reason getting over you
it’s so sad living it through

shine on - let there be no broken hearted
shine on - wave goodbye we finally parted
shine on - who will be the broken hearted
shine on….

no one’s to blame we let it fade away
with no regrets we said goodbye
a precious moment lost in yesterday
it’s such a shame to let it die

so damn easy…

shine on…

so damn easy…

shine on…
