Track Name: Athens City Prison
NOBODY KNOWS HOW THIS CITY WAS BEFORE
AND IT HASN'T BEEN A LONG TIME AGO
YOU DON'T KNOW FROM WHERE YOU REALLY CAME FROM?
NO I DON'T WANT TO KNOW
ALL I KNOW
WOH-OOOOH
IS THAT THERE IS NO PLACE TO GO
MY PRISON IS MY CITY
AND I KNOW IT'S SUCH A PITTY
MY BEAUTIFUL TOWN
HAS BECOME AN UNHOLY GROUND
WHEN YOU WERE BORN AND A LONG TIME AGO
THE MAPS LITTLE DOT WAS THE CITY YOU CAME FROM
NOT YOURS AT ALL, STOP CLAIMING IT'S YOUR 'SPOT'
IT'S JUST A PLACE THAT YOU CALL YOUR HOME
ALL I KNOW
WOH-OOOOH
IS THAT THERE IS NO PLACE TO GO
MY PRISON IS MY CITY
AND I KNOW IT'S SUCH A PITTY
MY BEAUTIFUL TOWN
HAS BECOME AN UNHOLY GROUND
EVERY PLACE
IS YOUR HOME
ALL THE STREETS YOU COME ALOOONG
IT'S NOT MINE, NOT EVEN YOURS
WE HAVE A PLANET TO CALL HOME
ALL I KNOW
WOH-OOOOH
IS THAT THERE IS NO PLACE TO GO
MY PRISON IS MY CITY
AND I KNOW IT'S SUCH A PITTY
MY BEAUTIFUL TOWN
HAS BECOME AN UNHOLY GROUND
Track Name: Our War
(originally written by friend Dimitris Roussos)
NIGHTS OF LUST
AND DAYS OF TRUST
NOW LONG AND GONE
SIMPLE LIFE
COMPLEX LIFE
IN A WAY OF IT'S OWN
WHO WOULD THINK THAT THIS IS IT
PROGRESSION COMES AROUND
KNOCKS THE DOOR
YOU'RE INVOLVED
NOW THE WAR IS YOUR OWN
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
RESPONSIBILITIES WILL NEVER END
PRIORITIES COME ALONG
A HELPING HAND, A FRIENDLY HUG
FORGOTEN AND GONE
THIS IS THE SITUATION OF ALL
AND THESE WALLS WOULD BUILT OUR HOME
BUT EVEN IF YOU'RE STANDING STRONG OR NOT
NOW THE WAR IS YOUR OWN
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
IT GOES OOOON AND ON, ON AND ON
YOUR WAR GOES ON
Track Name: Lost and Defeated
I'M LOST NOW AND I DON'T REALLY GET EXCITED
WELL I DON'T THINK I CARE
AND IF I STAY I FEEL DEFEATED AND WIRED
IS IT WRONG TO EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS
WELL I DON'T THINK I DARE
AND ALL I KNOW IS THAT THE ROAD
IS MY HOME
THIS IS WHERE I BELONG
AND NOTHING WILL GO WRONG
WHEN I GOT YOU IN MY SONG
AND HEY
HOW CAN YOU BE SO COOL
WHEN LIFE IS CLOSING THE DOOR TO YOU
AND I DON'T CARE FOR THAT LIFE NO MORE
WELL I DON'T THINK YOU ARE THE ONE
YEAH I DON'T THINK YOU ARE THE ONE
YEAH I DON'T THINK YOU ARE THE ONE
I'M LOST KNOW AND I DON'T
I THINK I'M GETTING TIRED
WELL I DON'T THINK I CARE
AND IF I STAY I FEEL DEFEATED AND WIRED
IS IT WRONG TO EXPRESS YOUR FEELINGS
WELL I DON'T THINK I DARE
AND ALL I KNOW IS THAT THE ROAD
IS MY HOME
THIS IS WHERE I BELONG
AND NOTHING WILL GO WRONG
WHEN I GOT YOU IN MY SONG
I KNOW THAT I'M NOT OK
WHEN I MISS YOU EVERY DAY
SO SAD AND THAT'S SO TRUE
WHEN ALL I WANT IS YOU
SO GOOD BYE
SO GOOD BYE
