Ain’t No Doctor I have to leave you now and I won’t be back tomorrow Oh how I wish that I could be the one Leave me a piece of me before you go ’Cause you’ve taken all the rest all the time that I gave you all my best But the time is yet to tell, Said wether you’ll pay for what you have done Time’s supposed to heal the wounded But yet the world is simply frozen over whoever we were and what we used to be Oh it just goes to show you But the time is yet to tell, Said wether you’ll pay for what you have done Ain’t no doctor, can tell that I’m in pain and ain’t no doctor, can help me from my pain Don’t take me back to no memory Of a time that I can’t live again Whoever I was and who I’m gonna be Will be determined by the way that you’ve treated me yeah But the time is yet to tell, wether you’ll pay for what you have done Ain’t no doctor, can tell that I’m in pain And ain’t no doctor, can help me from my pain Said Ain’t no doctor, can tell that I’m in pain And ain’t no doctor, can help me, please won’t you help me yeah ’Cause you’ve taken all the rest All the time that I gave you my best Said ain’t no doctor, can tell that I’m in pain And ain’t no doctor, can help me from my pain Said Ain’t no doctor, can tell that I’m in pain Ain’t no doctor, can help me, please oh won’t you help me yeah

Tower 04:41
Tower Looking back at a place where all that Was a cry for someone up above To hear them shout, oh they wanted out But still they had no place to go Back at the time they fought for what they love No social place typing silent words I see a poster sitting up above It’s telling me to tell the world You’ve got us locked up in your tower, thinking you’ve got all the power But honey things will change You think you have got the key, in which way we should be We’ll take it down tonight I got no time I must move before Your twisted mind comes knocking at my door Don’t wanna know, but do I have a choice When you got me all pacified I must break free, I won’t stand in line If you can’t see that you waste your time No need to worry, you will be just fine You ride the the wave and I’ll see you on the other side You’ve got us locked up in your tower, thinking you’ve got all the power But honey things will change You think you have got the key, in which way we should be We’ll take it down tonight You’ve got us locked up in your tower, thinking you’ve got all the power But honey things will change You think you have got the key, in which way we should be We’ll take it down tonight You’ve got us locked up in your tower, thinking you’ve got all the power But honey things will change You say it’s something worth to cry for, and something worth to die for But not in reality You’ve got us locked up in your tower You think you’ve the key Oh we’ll take it down

Blackbird 05:45
Blackbird It may seem like the end of all Like everything’s about to fall What you have done and been through so far Has left you hurt and covered in scars I swear I've been through this before But you’ve got a way to ignore Now you’re standing still and look to the sky Answering my questions with lies Blackbird, in the sleet and the rain humming for your life You can’t fly ’cause you lost all inside so long ago Be proud and don’t ever let someone put you down And don’t hie in your lonesome and broken tree And no matter what you do, nothing can stop the truth ’Cause sooner or later in life, you will realise That all the things that you’ve said and done Was fueled by your anger in time Still you’re standing still and look to the sky Yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah A whispering voice you recognize is hiding in the dark It’s speaking to you it’s speaking the truth Live on fly on Blackbird, oh Blackbird, in the sleet and the rain humming for your life You can’t fly ’cause you lost all inside so long ago Be proud and don’t ever let someone put you down And don’t hie in your lonesome and broken tree Blackbird, live on, fly on Said I know, I know how it hurts Yeah, oh said yeah yeah yeah It may seem like the end of it all

Killer On The Loose You thought you had a such a sweet and safe life, hiding at home Oh you never worry ’bout nothing, bad news and all But slowly things are changing, you better be aware ’Cause tonight anything can happen and there’s no escaping for you now Oh baby better hold on You lay ’wake at night and wonder Something is crawling up beside ready to strike again, again, again and again Beware and look behind your shoulder Don’t you know that there’s a killer on the loose Shadows moving closer and closer, don’t fight it Now everything’s looking harmful to ya’, but don’t be scared ’Cause slowly things are changing, you better be aware And tonight anything can happen and there’s no escaping for you now Ohhhh, oh baby better hold on You lay ’wake at night and wonder Something is crawling up beside ready to strike again, again, again and again Beware and look behind your shoulder Don’t you know that there’s a killer on the loose, loose, loose Oh baby better hold on You lay ’wake at night and wonder Something is crawling up beside ready to strike again, again, again and again Beware and look behind your shoulder Don’t you know that there’s a killer on the loose

One Last Time He’s living there captured in a dark, lonely quiet place The line’s getting clearer on his face every day Oh can you hear him Ooh Once he was free from it all, living in the moment of each day Now looking back is causing so much pain Oh can you see him Oh disappearing, yeah Take me back for the last time Let me go with you once more Pictures scatter into nothing They will never come alive Nostalgic and weak trying to speak But how can he not when all that he’s got is gone so long ago Oh don’t you fear him Oh you will hear him now as he begs you please Take me back for the last time Let me go with you once more Pictures scatter into nothing They will never come alive I can’t stand this I can’t stand no won’t you please help me lord Take me back for the last time Let me go with you once more Pictures scatter into nothing They will never come alive Come alive oh, said memories never die No pictures, said pictures never die
