(A. Vandenberg)
Another day, another night, they just fade away
I can't seem to read the signs, might have lost my way
I might have lost my way
Looking through the clouds of grey, I can see their hands
Telling me that I can't stay, in their no man's land, in their no man's land
Time's tight with all my might, tryin' to beat my deadlines
All night wide awake, hanging on a lifeline
Hold on, hold on, should have seen it comin'
Shakedown in my mind, who decides what's wrong or right
Reject, face the facts, honesty is hard to find
Rollin', rollin', rollin' with the punches
Chorus:
When the night comes, yeah, I should be on the streets
But when the hammer comes down - everytime
I wanna hide deep in this soul of mine
When the hammer comes down - everytime, it blows my mind
It blows my mind
One foot on the train, one foot on the platform
Run the race, play the game, all is fair in love and war
Rollin', rollin', rollin' with the punches
(chorus)
(When the hammer comes down, when the hammer comes down)
(Solo)
Looking through the clouds of grey, I can see their hands
Telling me that I can't stay, in their no man's land, in their no man's land
Judas kiss, cold lips, look me right in the eye
Smile at you, daylight, stab you in the back at night
Take it, take it, take it if you want it
When the night comes, and it comes, I should be on the streets
But when the hammer comes down - everytime
I wanna hide deep in this soul of mine
When the hammer comes down - everytime, it blows my mind
I wanna hide deep in this soul of mine
But when the hammer comes down - everytime, it blows my mind
When the hammer comes down - everytime
I wanna hide deep in this soul of mine
But when the hammer comes down - everytime, it blows my mind
(Blows my mind) (repeats)
