Dio – Killing the Dragon Lyrics (2002)

1. Killing the Dragon

Silence
We hunt for the queen
Sign of the cross
And pray in between
Look by the light of the day
She’s hiding ’till dark
Waiting to play, hey hey

Something’s taken a child
And it all must end
Time to be killing the dragon again

Silence
We’ll hunt for the Lord
He takes crimson and gold
Gave ice to the cold
Oh to be never afraid
Of wolves at the door
Howling for more

Mores’ been empty for years
And it all must end
Time to be killing the dragon again

Kneel and behold your new king
Digital dreams
And wonderful things
To tease you

Small gods with electrical hearts
And it all will end
Time to be killing the dragon

2. Along Comes a Spider

Remember when you only needed no one
Every day’s tomorrow, and it’s all right
No confessions, not for you
Forget the things you’ve done, it’s what you’ll do
The first time you’re suspicious
What’s that gliding down
Along comes a spider

Suddenly the world has no more changes
You’ve run with an evil woman, so it’s all right
No more strangers’ candy lies
The light is so much better for your eyes
Now I’m not superstitious
But every time you’ve tried
Along comes a spider

Don’t ask why, it’s the long way around
Just go wild

Why do we believe in conversation
We never seem to listen, we only hear
Now you don’t need permission
But don’t get caught next time
Along comes a spider
A spider, a spider, inside her

3. Scream

You’ve made it through another day
Driving past the back roads of your mind
You could have turned the other way
And break down on the sanity you’ve found inside you
Someone said that you were fantasy
But in the darkness behind your smile
You scream, scream

Scream for the crazy ones
Scream at the things you’ve done
Scream at the rising sun

We bless the beautiful
Let us forgive you for your sins
These must be holy ones
How could we believe they’d let us in
Ah once I heard that they were fantasy
But in the darkness behind their smile
They scream, scream

Scream of a broken heart
Scream as they come apart
Scream ’cause they never started
Scream

No pain, no sympathy
You’ve always been so steady at the wheel
Some friend, reality
You break down on the highway
About to see it my way

Scream at the crazy ones
Scream ’cause they all have sons
Scream as they point the gun at you
Scream at the bleeding heart
Scream ’cause the end won’t start
Scream as they come apart again
Again, again, again, again, again, again, again

4. Better in the Dark

I’m all right, I’m crossing over
I just shot the sun
One more night, black as heaven
So no one saw the gun
Running with monsters in shadows
And monsters always know
It’s better in the dark

Oh she’s all right, tall and handsome
If the lights are down
Gone by dawn, takes no chances
Might come back around
Clutching to monsters in shadows
And monsters always know
It’s better in the dark

I’m all right, I’m crossing over
I can disappear, gone!
Clutching to monsters in shadows
And monsters always know
It’s better in the dark
Better in the dark
I just shot the sun

5. Rock & Roll

If they take away your song
You can finally hear the voices
Of the one’s that don’t belong

In the face of the rising wind
We all sing Gloria
Is there flame without fire?
Most unlikely
If you’re there when the walls come down
We all sing warrior
Is there sight without sound?
Most unlikely

But we got rock and roll
Rock and roll
Take me anywhere
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Is there someone there
Rock and roll

On the edge of the last goodbye
We all sing warrior
Ah the brave never die
Most unlikely
Hey, send your heroes off to war
But whisper in their ear
Never cross the song police
They can tell you what you’re gonna hear again

For the sake of the left behind
We all sing Gloria
Soon forgotten by time
So unlikely

‘Cause we got rock and roll
Rock and roll
Take you anywhere
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Someone’s always there
Rock and roll

Bring me anywhere
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Someone’s always there
Rock and roll
Rock and roll me, ah

Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Rock and roll
Rock and roll

6. Push

You’ve ridden on a carousel
So you know the feeling
As the ring slips through your fingers
Sometimes you justify it
But there’s the sword and you’re bleeding once again

Before you’re in a corner
Can’t crawl away
Here’s a way to save you

You’ve got to push
Get out of my way and push
You can turn the wheel, push
One more push

You’ve mastered the broken heart
So you know the feeling
As your soul starts going under
Sometimes you rectify it
Then out of the blue the hammer falls again

Before you’re in the water
Can’t sail away
Here’s a way to save you

You’ve got to push
Break the body down
Oh push
Out of my way, I’ll push
You better push

You’ve got to push
Hands against the wall
And push
Out of my way, we’ll push
You can turn the wheel
Go on and push, push, push, push, push, push

7. Guilty

He’d never tell her lies
And she believed in magic
But when the magic died
She could see that all along he’s just been

Guilty, a liar, liar
Guilty
Guilty, burn in fire
Guilty

It’s time to say goodbye
Don’t tell another story
Another Alibi
Now you see that all along he’s just been

Guilty, a liar, liar
Guilty
Guilty, hope you burn in fire
Guilty
Guilty, the great pretender
Guilty
You’re guilty, just surrender
‘Cause you’re guilty

Broken promise
But please forgive again
One more time for me
It’s the very last time, you’ll see

Guilty, liar, liar
You’ll burn in fire
Guilty, liar, liar
Guilty
Guilty, the great pretender
Guilty
Guilty, just surrender
You’re Guilty
Guilty, Guilty,
Guilty, a lair, liar, liar
Guilty
You’ll burn in fire
Oh guilty, (you’re guilty) you’ll burn in fire
Surrender
Guilty, you’re so guilty

8. Throw Away Children

Oh the sun’s gone down, her day begins
And the rhythm of the darkness wakes the dead
Don’t answer eyes that smile, don’t let them in
They see the lonely child, she feels their sin
But it’s getting so much colder, and she’s afraid
Never going back to where the pain was
She’d rather face the pain that’s here and now

Someone’s thrown away their children
You can see them running from your smile
Sing for the runaway children
The throw away child

I’ll make you safe and warm
Words she needs to hear
What they really mean
Is no more little girl
Don’t see her anymore, they disappear

Yesterday they said that she was dying
And just today I heard that she was dead

Someone’s thrown away their children
You can see them running from your smile
Sing for the runaway children
The throw away child

Someone’s thrown away their children
You can hear them only if you try
Sing for the runaway children
Goodbye

Someone’s thrown away their children
You can see them running from your smile
Sing for the runaway children
The throw away child

Someone’s thrown away their children
You can see them running from your smile
Sing for the runaway children
The throw away child

9. Before the Fall

Some one had a dream
Never been to London
Never in a limousine
Something made him go
Could it be the voices coming from the radio (radio)

But somewhere down the line
The happiness you’ll find
Will crash into a wall
Just before the fall

Some one joined the band
But he never heard the music
Couldn’t really understand, no, no, no
Don’t know what they mean
Where’s my picture shining from a magazine

But somewhere down the line
He’ll quickly glance behind
Then smash into a wall
Before the fall

Some one ran so fast
When he saw the future
He was sure that it was just the past
Some one had a dream
Only this one ended lost
Inside the old machine

And somewhere down the line
They’ll say that his is mine
And all that’s left is time
Time to fall and stumble, ah

10. Cold Feet

Tired of living in the black and white
Where fools can tell you that you’re never right
I know a place where the film’s in color
Just step inside of yourself
Here’s a place in the front row
So on with the show

The same old shadow on the run
Hey that’s no shadow, it’s your shadow’s son

I know a place where the pools got water
And you don’t need to know how to swim
Here’s the key to the back door
Do you want more
Do you need more

Same old rhythm to the same old rhyme
The same old clock, same old time

There’s a place where the grass is greener
And you could shake, rattle and roll
Here’s the key to the front door
Do you want more
Will you need more

Tired of living in the black and white
Where no one’s wrong and you’re never right
Same old steps to the same old dance
Just one more reason, one more chance
Oh
