    Sweet Leafe
    Alright now!
    Won't you listen?

    When I first met you didn't realize
    I can't forget you or your surprise
    You introduced me to my mind
    And left me wanting you and your kind

    I love you. Oh you know it

    My life was empty forever on a down
    Until you took me showed me around
    My life is free now, my life is clear
    I love you sweet leaf - though you can't hear

    Come on now - try it out

    Straight people don't know what you're about
    They put you down and shut you out
    You gave to me a new belief
    And soon the world will love you sweet leaf
    After Forever

    Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved
    Or perhaps you think that when you're dead
    you just stay in your grave
    Is God just a thought within your head
    or is he a part of you
    Is Christ just a name that you read in a book
    when you were at school?
    When you think about death do you lose your breathe
    or do you keep your cool?
    Would you like to see the Pop, on the end of a rope
    - Do you think he's a fool?
    Well I have seen the truth. Yes I have seen the light
    and I've changed my ways
    And I'll be prepared when you're lonely
    and scared at the end of Our days

    Could it be you're afraid of what you friends might say
    If they knew you believe in God above
    They should realize before they criticise
    That God is the only way to love

    Is your mind so small that you have to fall
    In with the pack wherever they run
    Will you still sneer when death is near
    And say they may as well worship the sun

    I think it was true it was people like you
    that crucified Christ
    I think it sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
    Will you be so sure when your day is near
    say you don't believe?
    You had the chance but you turned it down
    now you can't retrieve.

    Perhaps you'll think before you say
    that God is dead and sone
    Open your eyes, just, realize that he is the One
    The only One Who can save you now from all this sun & hate
    Or will you still jeer at all you hear?
    Yes! - I think it's too late.
    Children of the Grave

    Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
    Against the world they have to live in
    Oh! the hate that's in their hearts
    They're tired of being pushed around
    and told just what to do
    They'll fight the world until they've won
    and love comes flowing through

    Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
    Will the sunrise of tomorrow bring in peace in any way
    Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear
    Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

    So you children of the world listen to what say
    If you want a better place to live in spread
    the world today
    Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
    Or your children of today are children of the grave
    Lord of This World

    You've searching for your mind don't know where to start
    Can't find the key to fit the lock on your heart
    You think you know but you are never quite sure
    Your soul is ill but you will not find cure

    Your world was made for you by someone above
    But you choose evil ways instead of love
    You made me master of the world where you exist
    The soul I took from you was not even missed

    Lord of this world
    Evil Possessor
    Lord of this world
    He's your confessor now!

    You think you're inocent you've nothing to fear
    You don't know me, you say, but isn't it clear?
    You turn to me in all your wordly greed and pride
    But will you turn to me when it's your turn to die?

    My name it means nothing
    My fortune is less
    My future is shrouded in dark wilderness
    Sunshine is far away, clouds linger on
    Everything I possessed - now they are gone

    O, where can I go to and what can I do?
    Nothing can please me only thoughts are of you
    You just laughted when I begged you to stay
    I've not stopped crying since you went away

    The world is a lonely place - you're on your own
    Guess I will go home - sit down and moan
    Crying and thinking is all that I do
    Memories I have remind me of you
    Into the Void

    Rocet engines burning fuel so fast
    Up into the night sky they blast
    Through the universe the engines whine
    Could it be the end of man and time
    Back on earth the flame of life burns low
    Everywhere is misery and woe
    Pollution kills the air, the land, the sea
    Man prepares to meet his destiny
    Rocet engines burning fuel so fast
    Up into the black sky so vast
    Burning metal through the atmosphere
    Earth remains in worry, hate and fear
    With the hateful battles raging on
    Rockets flying to the glowing sun void
    Through the empires of eternal
    Freedom the final suicide

    Freedom fighters sent out to the sun
    Escape from brainwashed winds and pollution
    Leave the earth to all it's sin and hate
    Find another world where freedom waits

    Past the stars in fields of ancient void
    Through the shields of darkness where they find
    Love upon a land a world unknown
    Where the sons of freedom make their home
    Leave the earth - to satan and his slaves
    Leave them to their future in their graves
    Make a home where love is there to slay
    Peace and happiness in every day.
