DEMON
The best of Demon Volume one (1999)

Night of the Demon  3:16
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

There's a scream in the night
There's death on the wind
And a heartbeat that's pounding like rain
There's a flash in the sky
A cry of a hound
As if someone is wailing the dead

And the nightmare begins as the Devil rides out
From the heat thru the gates of Hell
And there's no escape from the curse of the damned
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

Better lock up your doors
And get off the streets
If you fear for the reaper of souls
For they say when he rides he never returns
Till he's paid back the debt that he owes

So beware of the night
As the darkness descends the terror's about to unfold
And pray that your life will be spared of the fate
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

And the nightmare begins as the Devil rides out
From the heat thru the gates of Hell
And there's no escape from the curse of the damned
You better beware

Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high
Don't you know it's the night of the demon
When spirits run high

Into the nightmare  3:58
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Don't close your eyes they'll never wake you
You're into the nightmare
Beware the dreaded sleep don't let it take you
For this is the nightmare

Your mind begins to drift away
You try to fight but now you know it's too late
The power's to great
Your losing control they've taken your soul

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Spirits on the wall they're growing taller
You're into the nightmare
The madcap voice that moans for you to follow
Into the nightmare

Run for your life no place to go
The naked truth is now on show to us all
You've taken a fall
The phantoms of night your too weak to fight

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare
Out of the dead of night they came into the nightmare

Your mind begins to drift away
You try to fight but now you know it's too late
The power's to great
Your losing control they've taken your soul

You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight
You're into the nightmare
This nightmare may take your life tonight

Don't break the circle  4:44
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle

Concentrate!
I'm your contact link across the great divide
Many voices in my ear
Hold on I think there's something coming through
From the other side. It's for all those who believe
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle

Unexplained
Many things we thought were lost may come to light
On a higher plain in the spirit world
Where only a few of us possess the second sight
Now the messenger awaits
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle must keep going on and on.

But wait
Is there one amongst us here who disbelieves?
A stranger to the sign
Take care, for all the things you fear
May be revealed
Within the forces of the night
The chain is stronger if the lifeline is unbroken
So beware the presence of The Unexpected Guest

Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
Don't break the circle
The circle must keep going on and on
The circle must keep going on and on

The spell  3:40
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Take your place in the circle
Watch the mystery unwind
One cup of your lifeblood
Two parts of your mind
Thirteen faceless disciples
ln a room froze with fear
Summoned there by the master
Then he appears

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.
Under the spell

Dances at midnight
Naked but for the mask
Feasting Heaven's destructionThe spell has been cast
The power is total
Eclipse of the Son
Evil forces are strongest
His will to be done

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.
Under the spell

We all bear witness
To the ritual of life
While some choose to follow
The shadows of night
Forever banished in darkness
For those who've taken the vow
These things are of your own doing
You'll pay for it now

Under the spell
The mark of the Beast is upon you now
Under the spell
The mark of the Beast. You must serve him well.

Sign of a madman  4:30
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Somewhere inside a raging storm
Is waiting to be free
The balance hangs on one slim thread
A twisted nerve could blow it
All around the heat is on
Confusion. Confusion
A finger hitches on a trigger
Another mark of the gun

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

An insane act where genius reigned
The traitor came to light
He swore you were the chosen one
Who'd come to take his place
Now it seems you're showing signs
Of stress. Distress
The sentence passed upon yourself
There's no way out of here

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

How does it feel to be alone in there
How does it feel to be alone in there
Nothing is real now you're alone in there
Nothing is real now you're alone in there

You're all alone in a crowded room
Surrounded by your fate
In the grip of all your plans
You didn't even know it
Now the shadows hide the one
Who lies in wait
Looking for a place in history
How many more like you?

It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything
It's a sign of a madman
Losing his control
It's a sign of a madman
Losing everything

The plague  6:17
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Begin the madness
Tear down the sign
Ideals and values
They use to keep us in line

Turn a blind eye to jobless millions
Queues of wreckage to be broken down
Leaders feed us their solutions
Mistakes the death cart clears away

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

A pig for power
Misplacing trust
Science moves fact to fiction
Disturbing dust

All this in the name of progress
While our existence is sold downstream
Religion plays upon the ruin
While Manson throws away the key

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

Don't look at me
I'm not the answer
Look to you
It's where it's at

Don't look at me
I'm not the saviour
It's up to you
To face yourself

What price the future
And Orwell's dream
All yours big brother
On twenty two inch screen

The tragedy we bleed human
Can't feed emotion to the zombie brain
And as the rat becomes exhausted
We stand to lose the game

Beware of the...
The plague
The plague
The plague
The plague

Blackheath - Parts 1&2  4:42
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Intersong/Warner Chappel

Take a seat we've got it made
You're moved to precision
We're all sold out of human rights
It's made your decision
Keep belief in avoiding wars
Keep faith in Santa Claus
Feel free the first time in your life
Give yourself away

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play

On your admission the ride is free
Whatever takes your fancy
It's time to change your life support
We've got the future bottled
One chance to get away from it all
What a way to go
No more fear from crazy toys
We got the answer

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children playIf I believed in all I've read
I'd be marching with them to the black lands
Of the living dead

Blackheath
Nothing goes on here
Blackheath
Nothing grows on here
Blackheath
Only children play

Touching the ice  4:50
Dave Hill-Mal Spooner
Cloth Cap Songs

Heading in the new direction
Old bulldogs had its day
Steel wheels moving in slow motion
Think it's time to take our place

Let's rattle the cage
Work the machine
Let'em know who you are
Shine to be seen

Crushed the cold hands of tradition
Who cares where you come from?
We're receivers of progression
Not signals out of phase

The mood on the street
Can't hold the line
To where will it lead?
Move on the tide

We are touching the whole human race
We are touching now
We are touching a time and a place
We are touching now

Touching, touching
Touching, touching

As we race to meet the future
A generation after face
Knowing nothing's really certain
Only the chance we gotta take

Don't need the disguise
To hide the mistakes
Rather run 'gainst the odds
Than sail on the waste
From the start of the gun
To the crossing of tape
In the eyes of the world
There's no escape

We are touching the whole human race
We are touching now
We are touching a time and a place
We are touching now

Heart of our time (Girls up mix)  3:48
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

All around
So much change is taking place
Everywhere
We're moving in a different way
All around
You can feel the wind of change
It's out there
On the streets
It's beyond the wildest dreams
Can't imagine

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Here we are
About to take the biggest step
The heat is on
Maybe we can make it yet
Reaching out
Trying to make the other side
What we're after
Face to face
Waiting for the moment when
We stand there

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

It's the only way there is
We have a chance to put things right
Gotta leave the darkest road
And head into the light

Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel
Playing our part
Expressing the heart on our time
Playing for real
Expressing the way that we feel

Life on the wire  5:40
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Through the morning mist I hear the jungle drum
Concrete hugs against the sky
Like a needle searching for the vein
It feels so cold
Wish I was high

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

No more waiting something had to give
And when it came a strange release
I never really knew if it was in my brain
Until the day I went too far

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other way

A stage door pass for friends
Amongst the garbage cans
Just old soldiers calling time
The smell of meths runs high
Across this stinking waste
Is it any place to die?

Life on the wire
How I love to be up there
Life on the wire
How it leaves me running scared

I can't stand it one more night
Take this hell away
I can't stand it one more night
There's no other way

Hurricane  4:48
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Battles rage on city streets
Two tribes face to face
Sunsets high on riots shields
It's a no-goers place
The lines holding fast run run for cover
The heat's so intense into the night
Somebody said this couldn't happen
Not in our time, it can't happen here

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to last

A tidal wave rides the crowd
Incensing the mob
A sea of blue rushes in
It's a cavalry charge
Eyes fueled with hate stare through the darkness
A cry stirs the pack sensing the kill
We stood together for Queen and for Country
Something went wrong
We're divided in fear

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to last

Bloodshot sky in the morning rain
The battlefield sleeps
Only kids come out to play
In confused disbelief
Word quickly spreads to a man from the government
Promising everything money can buy
But he can't understand cause he wasn't born here
It takes more than words the truth runs much deeper

The Hurricane blows streets all on fire
The Empires now striking back
The Hurricane moves hearts of the land
The silence was too good to last

Remembrance day (a song for peace)  9:39
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Everywhere they gathered on that day
Poppies worn with pride
And in a land torn apart by hate
People came to pray
It was a time of hope, a time of peace
A time for a change
But in a moment all was raised to the ground
Could it ever be the same?

Some mother's son or daughter lay in wait
And blew some mother's child away
And every dream we dream
We have to pay the price
In God's name what have we become?

On Remembrance Day
On Remembrance Day

Through the hell a father dug with his bare hands
Still standing firm in his belief
He asked forgiveness for the one who'd taken life
I'm sure I heard the heavens cry
And as the grey reality of violence leaves its scar
The pictures tell their stories more than words
A sense of survival might teach us all we know
But there's another way for voices to be heard

Some mother's son or daughter lay in wait
And blew some mother's child away
And every dream we dream
We have to pay the price
In God's name what have we become?

On Remembrance Day
On Remembrance Day

I pray they find a peace
In a great and proud land
Where their sons and daughters
Will walk hand in hand
And all the hearts will beat
To the sound of one drum
When the streets no more
Echo the gun

No more hell on earth  6:50
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Last night I went to sleep
And dreamed the strangest dream
I was a prisoner in a land I'd never seen
The heat was so unbearable
The day was black as night
And I heard my children's children screaming

You left it all to us
The oceans and the skies
You let it all decay
Before your very eyes
The judge and jury they have sentenced you to life
But that's not long enough
Cause life has passed you by

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change it

Out in the distance
I could hear a lost soul's cry
Waiting for relief to come
Left alone out on the wire
I saw the face of God
In a cradle as a child
He held the cross within his hands
A sword was in his side

He came a second time
But still was crucified
You never did believe
The one called Jesus Christ
You called yourself a Christian
But what about your faith?
You built your temples of desire
Upon the sacred place

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change it

A shelter in an underground
Strange symbols on the wall
A rat infested sewer
Like some relic from the war
You left it all to us, you left it all to us
These are the corridors of power
Where forever you shall walk

I searched the wastelands till
I found someone I knew
Then I finally realized
The nightmare had come true
The place where I was standing
Was the place where I was born
And my name was on the roll of honour
To the fallen of the third world war

You left it all to us
The oceans and the skies
You let it all decay
Before your very eyes
The judge and jury they have sentenced you to life
But that's not long enough
Cause life has passed you by

No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all
No more hell on earth
You left us with your broken promises
No more hell on earth
There's no time to change it all, to change it

The lion's share  5:00
Dave Hill-Steve Watts
Cloth Cap Songs

Strike up the band
Break out the bar
Let'em know we're back in business this time
Don't be a fool
Can't you see I was kicked when I was down
Got nerves of steel
My memory's long and I've learned to be
The hunter not the hunted
I want the best that money can buy
Gotta have the sweet smell of success
So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

I'm sick and tired of playing second best
But now I don't look back anymore
I've served my time
I've paid my debt
And tonight I'm gonna ride out in the sunset
I've been around I know where it hurts
You see action speaks louder than words
Just start me up give me the power
And I feel just like a jet on the runway

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

You can spend all your life beeing somebody's fool
Or sell your soul and go break every rule
You know there's no money in honesty
But I tell you son, you've gotta be what you'll be

Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

Hey mr Big watch your cigar I'm gonna stick
My nose in your business
I've seen the light that shines in the dark
I've seen my destiny written in the stars
So stand your ground it's face to face
And prepare yourself for a showdown
The game is up the pack's at your heels
And there's nothing left for the loser

So get out of here
This thing is starting to roll
If you wanna play tough
You might just get lost in the cold

I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
I want it all I don't care
I want it all the lion's share
Give me the lion's share

Visions of the future II  5:09
Dave Hill-Steve Brookes
Cloth Cap Songs

Nazis on the march again
The left against the reich
Greed has left its legacy
The Gulf has got no light
Will you tell me who killed Kennedy
Even though we always knew
You lived the lie for all those years
Now what about the truth

Speak to me
I need a shelter from this crazy scene
I need to find peace and sanity
In this world

Cities made of mirrors
They're reflecting all our lives
Streets are plagued by zombies
Shaved head, no brain, mad eyes
Ageing politicians driving
Closer to the kerb
Power crazed evangelists
Making fortunes from the Word

Speak to me
I need a shelter from this crazy scene
I need to find peace and sanity

Machines to take us everywhere
From the future to the past
We can all be part of our own destiny
And if you wanna stay a while
You can see what we've become
Everything has changed
And one day you'll be there
Visions of love, visions of life,
Visions of something on the otherside

Assembly lines of human beings all systematically cloned
It wasn't long ago they called it fantasy
Suspended animation sees the return of the living dead
But you might not wake up where you dreamed you'd be
Visions of love, visions of life,
Visions of something from the otherside.

I wanted to run
I wanted to hide
Something just seemed to take over my mind
I couldn't feel what was happening to me
Everything just getting out of control

When the light came on I saw
Visions of the future
In the night I thought I heard
Voices speaking to me
When the light came on I saw
Visions of the future
In the night I thought I heard
Voices speaking to me
When the light came on I saw
Visions of the future
In the night I thought I heard
Voices speaking to me
