RUNNING OUT OF HEROES

Where are those men  /  With a vision and a dream  /  Who spread their hope around the world  //  They are getting fewer; now we need 'em more than ever  /  Now they're gone - buried with their voices we still hear.  //  We're running out of heroes  /  Who light the darkest day  /  We're running out of idols  /  Who we follow, who show the way  /  And paint the grey  //  Who's here today  /  With a mission or a goal  /  Showing us how to make a better world  //  The kids without real idols or someone to look up to, like we had - most of them are dead and dumb  //  We're running out of heroes  /  Who light the darkest day  /  We're running out of idols  /  Who we follow, who show the way  /  And paint the grey  //  We're running out of heroes...

NOTHING FROM NOTHING

It's all up on you now  //  You have to plant the seeds  /  Then you'll get your fruits  /  You can milk a fat cow  /  But first you've got to feed it  /  That's the truth  //  All that money can't buy  /  Effort, work and knowledge  /  That is what it takes  /  It's your duty to try  /  Labour comes before cash you will make  //  Things won't come out of the blue  /  It depends on what you do  //  You'll get out what you've put in  /  But you'll get nothing from nothing  //  Don't think it's all easy  /  You'll harvest by the way  /  No need to strive  /  Might as well be lazy  /  Waiting for the great days of your life  //  Fate lies in your own hands  /  You'll get what you deserve but nothing more  /  You're the smith of your chance  /  The gain you'll get is worth working for  //  Things won't come out of the blue...  //  You'll get out what you've put in  /  But you'll get nothing from nothing  /  If you fight and put in pain  /  You'll succeed and get your gain  //  Things won't come out of the blue...  //  You'll get out what you've put in...

MULTIPLE CHOICE

Don't want to know those million ways to go  /  Wonder which one's right   /  It's too hard to decide  /  Pondering we compare and check out carefully  /  Study night and day until we say "OK"  //  I think that life was much easier before  /  Should we complicate it more and more?  //  Still search the perfect deal  /  I don't know what to take  /  Feel overcharged by choice  /  Like running in a wheel  /  I choose for heaven's sake  /  Don't need multiple choice  //  Could decide what to do  /  When choices were just few  /  Didn't waste my time  /  By making up my mind  //  I think that life was much easier before  /  Should we complicate it more and more?  //  Still search the perfect deal  /  I don't know what to take  /  Feel overcharged by choice  /  Like running in a wheel  /  I choose for heaven's sake  /  Don't need multiple choice  //  It's a world of plenty  /  No more overview  /  Is it neccessary?  /  A little less would do  //  Still search the perfect deal...

A LIGHT IN THE DARK

The whole world is nagging me  /  Spits right into my face  /  Signs of hope they can't be seen  /  Get lost in a horrible maze  //  Who's there to make my day  /  And stop today's dismay?  //  Just wait for better times  /  For one good ray that shines on me  /  Shines on me  //  A light in the dark  /  The hope giving spark  //  Give in to my "poor boy blues"  /  Seem to pity myself  /  There is nothing I could do  /  But all is good that ends well  //  It's you who saves my day  /  Who wipes all clouds away  //  You come here just on time  /  At last one ray that shines on me  /  Shines on me  //  A light in the dark  /  The hope giving spark  //  It's you who saves my day  /  Who wipes all clouds away  //  You come here just on time  /  At last one ray that shines on me  /  Shines on me  //  A light in the dark  /  The hope giving spark
