Strange Frontier
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Strange frontier..

Into the shadows
From out of the light
Into the darkness
And into the night
We're off the tracks
We're off the lines
You and me seen better times
Now we're on the borderline and I wish I wasn't here
People say it could never happen here
But this is a strange frontier

Freedom fighters come and go
Bloody, righteous - and mentally slow
We're on the skids
We're off the lines
Trapped inside these dangerous times
Now we've reached the borderline you can start to smell the fear
People say it could never happen here
But this is a strange frontier

Had some good times
Had some fun
Soon our problems
Could be none
We're on the skids
We're off the lines
We're out of luck
We're out of time
Now we're on the borderline we've nearly gone and done it this time
People say it could never happen here
But this is a strange frontier

Freedom fighters come and go
Bloody, righteous - and mentally slow
We're out of work
We're out of time
We're out of luck
We're out of line
Now we're on the borderline we've really gone and done it this time
People say it could never happen here
But this is a strange frontier

Take your children while you can
But there's nowhere you can run
No more tears and no more fun
Some day soon they'll drop the big one
No more dad and no more mum

This is a strange frontier
 
 

Beautiful Dreams
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Beautiful dreams we had at night
All children have to dream at night
Eyes closed in sleep of innocence
Sandman had come to us alright
Beautiful dreamers - lost in some never-never dream
Beautiful dreams we had
Just beautiful dreams

Beautiful dreams we had alright
Now we had found the golden key
Door to a secret world
Of chemical dreams
Beautiful dreamers - of beautiful dreams
Beautiful dreams we had
Such beautiful dreams

We'd like to find a cure
For every known disease
There's no such thing you say
The answer is there to see

Colourful dreams we have at night
Of nuclear purity
This is the final twilight
This is the final cure it seems
Beautiful dreamers - drifting in never-never dreams
Beautiful dreams we had
Just beautiful dreams
Dreams - Dreams - Dreams - Dreams
 
 

Man On Fire
Words and music by Roger Taylor

I walk these streets each and every day
Trying to find some work just to earn my pay
Just to make some plans for you some day
But plans don't work and it's not that fine
When you've got no money all you've got is time
Don't it make you stop and wonder why

Sometimes I feel like a man on fire
Sometimes I feel like a man possessed
Sometimes I wanna burn down this crazy town

I walk these streets each and every night
Feel I'm playing my role but it fits too tight
Watch my life go by in black and white
When times are hard and times are rough
Then you better be made of sterner stuff
You'll find it's time to stop and wonder why

I'm smokin' - I'm burnin'
I'm twisting and turning
But one thing I'm learning
It's the power of your love keeps me under their thumb
'Cos the beat of your heart is the beat of my drum
Don't it make you stop and wonder why

Sometimes I feel like a man on fire
Sometimes I feel like a man possessed
Sometimes I wanna burn down this crazy town

Sometimes I feel like a man on fire
Sometimes I feel like a man possessed
Sometimes I wanna burn down this crazy town

Sometimes I feel like a man on fire
Sometimes I feel like a man possessed
Sometimes I wanna burn down this crazy town

Sometimes I feel like a man on fire
Sometimes I feel like a man possessed
I wanna burn down this crazy town
 
 

Racing In The Street
Words and music by Bruce Springsteen

I got a 69 Chevy with a 396
Fuellie heads and a Hurst on the floor
She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot
Outside the seven eleven store
Me and my partner Sonny built her straight out of scratch
And he rides with me from town to town
We only run for the money got no strings attached
We set 'em up and then we shut 'em down
Tonight tonight the strips just right
I wanna blow 'em off in my first heat
Summer's here and the time is right
For racing in the street

We take all the action we can meet
And we cover all the north east states
When the strip shuts down we run 'em in the street
From the fire roads to the interstate
Now some guys they just give up livin'
And start dyin' little by little piece by piece
Some guys come home from work and wash up
And go racing in the street
Tonight tonight the strips just right
I wanna blow 'em all out of their seats
Callin' out around the world
We're goin' racing in the street

I met her on the strip three years ago
In a Camero with this dude from L.A.
I blew that Camero off my back
And drove that little girl away
But now there's wrinkles round my baby's eyes
And she cries herself to sleep at night
When I come home the house is dark
She sighs 'baby did you make it alright?'
She sits on the porch of her daddy's house
But all her pretty dreams are torn
She stares off alone into the night
With the eyes of one who hates for just bein' born
For all the shut-down strangers and hot-rod angels
Rumblin' through this promised land
Tonight my baby and me we're gonna ride to the sea
And wash these sins off our hands
Tonight tonight the highway's bright
Out of our way mister you best keep
Summer's here and the time is right
For racing in the street

Tonight tonight the strip's just right
I'm gonna blow 'em all outa their seats
'Cos summer's here and the time is right
For racing in the street
In the street - in the street - in the street - in the street
 
 

Masters Of War
Words and music by Bob Dylan

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know I can see through your masks

Like Judas of old
You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water that runs down my drain

You fasten all the triggers
For the others to fire
Then you sit back and watch
While the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion
While the young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies and into the mud

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You're not worth the blood that runs in your veins

And I hope that you die
And your death will come soon
I'll follow your casket
On a pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
I'll stand over your grave
Till I'm sure that you're dead
 
 

Killing Time
Words and music by Roger Taylor

Backing vocals: Freddie Mercury

I live on a satellite
Sun shines on a sea of steel
Ice-men in kryptonite
Cavemen on wheels
Here in our own small way
Just passing the time of day
Time goes by and we're treading the same old wheel
Killing what we can't steal
Days go by just killing time
Days go by

I'm living in paradise
Sunset across the shield
Paradise ain't so nice
Some raw deal
Here in our own sweet way
Passing the time of day
Time goes by and we're treading the same old wheel
Smothering all that's real
Ring the bell it's killing time
Killing time killing time

Years go by
Just killing time just killing time

I'm taking a fast flight
Straight course through the force fields
I've seen the real sights
Cavemen appeal
Here in our own small way
Passing the time of day
Time goes by and we're treading the same old wheel
Smile but we just don't feel
All fall down it's killing time

Days go by killing time
Just killing time Just killing time
Time
 
 

Abandon Fire
Words and music by Roger Taylor and David Richards

Join our army join our band
Join our army and be a real man

Abandon hope who enter here
Land of hopelessness and fear
A band of gypsies a band of gold
Won't save your hide won't save your soul
Caught like a fly on the face of the Eiger
There's a smile on the face of the tiger
Abandon hope
(Is this your answer?)
Abandon fire
Abandon ship
(You know the answer)
Abandon fire

Join our army join our band
Join our army and be a real man

The fires of hell would feel ice cold
And sure as time you'll soon grow old
Tears of heartache tears of rage
From living in a tiring age
Caught like a fly on the face of the Eiger
Now there's a smile on the face of the tiger
Abandon hope
(Is this your answer?)
Abandon fire
Abandon ship
(This is no answer)
Abandon fire
Abandon hope
(You know the answer)
Abandon fire
Abandon ship
Abandon fire

Listen to the rhythms of the city life
Listen to the rhythms of your soul
Listen to the rustling in the undergrowth
Follow in the footsteps to your goal

Abandon hope
(Is this your answer?)
Abandon fire
Abandon ship
(This is no answer)
Abandon fire
Abandon hope
(You know the answer)
Abandon fire
Abandon ship
Abandon fire
 
 

Young Love
Words and music by Roger Taylor

With a feeling so sure
With a feeling so real
When you know that it's right
When you know it's for real
You gotta stick to your guns show the world that you just don't care

When they're putting you down
With their knives in your back
When they're spreading it round
When they're on the attack
You gotta stand on your ground show the world that it's no cheap deal

This is your time
This is your life
This is no cage
This is your problem
This is your life
This is your age

Starbright - this is your night
Young love is what you feel
Young lovers fight
But young love is right
When your young love is real

You've seen it before
Like your mum and your dad
They're dying each day
Living a life that's so sad
You gotta stick to your guns
Grab a chance while the chances come

If you're frightened of dying
You ain't really alive
Every time that you meet
You try to kindle the fire
You gotta stand on your ground show the world that it's no cheap deal

This is your time
This is your life
This is no cage
This is your problem
This is your life
This is your age

Starbright - this is your night
Young love is what you feel
Young lovers fight
But young love is right
When your young love is real

Young love is right
Young love is real
Young love is what you feel
Young lovers fight
But young love is right
When your young love is real
Is real
Is real
Is real
 
 

It's An Illusion
Words and music by Roger Taylor and Rick Parfitt

Can't believe what you hear
Don't believe what you read
Hard to see what you need these days
Can't believe that it's true
You know we had so much to do
How come you treat me this way

Hey - you
Why don't you play by the rules
Play by the rules
You - just
You must take me
Take me for some kind of fool

It's an illusion
Here and gone in a day
Not what it seems this American dream
Just drifting away
It's an illusion
After all that we've seen
A complete waste of time
Just a nursery rhyme
Can't believe that you're leaving

Can't believe what you hear
Don't believe what you read
Hard to see what you need these days
They'll feed you the facts
Leave you like a kid on a railroad track
Our reason is fading away

O.K.
Not much left I can do
I can do
You - just
You just took me
Took me for some kinda fool

It's an illusion
Here and gone in a day
Not what it seems this American dream
Just drifting away
It's an illusion
After all that we've seen
It's a complete waste of time
Just a nursery rhyme
Can't believe that you're leaving

It's an illusion - it's an illusion
It's an illusion
It's an illusion
 
 

I Cry For You (Love Hope And Confusion)
Words and music by Roger Taylor

I cry
I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you
Love me
Tender
Love me
True
Love can always
See you through

I hope you're fine
I hope all's well
Given time
Hope springs eternal
Who finds conclusions
With love hope and confusion

I cry
I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you

Life
Has no fun anymore
Time
Is on the run for sure
No place to run anymore
Love hope and confusion
I hope you're fine
I hope all's well
Give 'em hell
Hope springs eternal
Who finds conclusions
With love hope and confusion

I cry
I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you

I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you

I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you

I cry for you
I cry for you
I cry for you
