KILL THE KING
(Blackmore/Dio/Powell)

Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King
Tear him down
Kill the King
Strike him down

Power, power it happens every day
Power, devour all along the way
Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King

Treason, treason, the specter looms again
Treason, treason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the King
Tear him down
Kill the King
Got to take his crown

Kill the King
He'll rule no more
Strike him dead

He'll rule no more
Strike him dead
The people roar
Kill the King
Take his head
Down, down, down, down
Oh, kill
Oh, kill
Oh, oh

 

MISTREATED
(Blackmore/Coverdale)

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been struck downhearted, baby, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing my mind, you know I have.

I've been lonely, I've been cold.
I've been looking for a woman to have and hold
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, I've been losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.

I've been mistreated, I've been abused.
I've been looking for a woman, yeh, I've been confused
'cause I know, yes, I know I've been mistreated, ooh o-o-oh.
Since my baby left me I've been losing, losing,
I've been losing my mind, baby baby babe.
Oh oh oh, oh woman, oh woman, oh woman.

I've been losing my mind.

 

SIXTEENTH CENTURY GREENSLEEVES
(Blackmore/Dio)

It's only been an hour
Since he locked her in the tower
The time has come
He must be undone
By the morning

Many times before
The tyrant's opened up the door
Then someone cries
Still we close our eyes
Not again

Meet me when the sun is in the Western skies
The fighting must begin before another someone dies
Crossbows in the fire light
Green sleeves waving
Madmen raving
Through the shattered night

Flames are getting higher
Make it leap unto the spire
Draw bridge down
Cut it to the ground
We shall dance around the fire

No more night
We have seen the light
Let it shine on bright
Hang him higher

 

CATCH THE RAINBOW
(Blackmore/Dio)

When evening falls, she'll run to me,
Like whispered dreams your eyes can't see.
Soft and warm, she'll touch my face,
A bed of straw, against the race.

We believed we'd catch the rainbow,
Ride the waves to the sun,
Sail away on ships of wonder.
But life's not a wheel with chains made of steel.
So, bless me, come the dawn,
Come the dawn, come the dawn, come the dawn.

 

MAN ON THE SILVER MOUNTAIN
(Blackmore/Dio)

I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel,
I can roll, I can feel.
And you can't stop me turning.
Cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun,
I can move, I can run.
But you'll never stop me burning!

Coming down with fire, to lift my spirit higher.
Someone's screaming my name.
" Come and make me holy again!"

I'm the man on the silver mountain.
I'm the man on the silver mountain.

I'm the day, I'm the day,
I can show you the way.
And look! I'm right beside you!
I'm the night, I'm the night,
I'm the dark and the light.
With eyes that see inside you.

Coming down with fire, to lift my spirit higher.
Someone's screaming my name.
" Come and make me holy again!"

I'm the man on the silver mountain.
I'm the man on the silver mountain.

 

STARGAZER
(Blackmore/Dio)

High noon, oh I'd sell my soul for water
Nine years worth of breakin' my back
There's no sun in the shadow of the wizard
See how he glides, why he's lighter than air?
Oh I see his face!

Where is your star?
Is it far, is it far, is it far?
When do we leave?
I believe, yes, I believe

In the heat and the rain
With the whips and chains
To see him fly
So many die
We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
Just to see him fly
But don't know why
Now where do we go?

Hot wind, moving fast across the desert
We feel that our time has arrived
The world spins, while we put his dream together
A tower of stone to take him straight to the sky
Oh I see his face!

Where is your star?
Is it far, is it far, is it far?
When do we leave?
Hey, I believe, I believe

In the heat and the rain
With the whips and chains
Just to see him fly
Too many die
We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
To see him fly
But we don't know why
Ooh, now where do we go

All eyes see the figure of the wizard
As he climbs to the top of the world
No sound, as he falls instead of rising
Time standing still, then there's blood on the sand
Oh I see his face!

Where was your star?
Was it far, was it far
When did we leave?
We believed, we believed, we believed

In heat and rain
With the whips and chains
To see him fly
So many died
We built a tower of stone
With our flesh and bone
To see him fly

But why
In all the rain
With all the chains
Did so many die
Just to see him fly

Look at my flesh and bone
Now, look, look, look, look, Look at the tower of stone
I see your rainbow rising
Look there, on the horizon oh no, who's rising
And I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home

Time is standing still
You, give back my will
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Going home I'm going home

My eyes are bleeding
And my heart is lead ahead
But it's not home
But it's not home
Ooh

Take me back
You, give me back my will
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Going home
I'm going home

My eyes are bleeding
And my heart is lead ahead
But it's not home
But it's not home

Take me back, take me back
Back to my home ooh, ooh, ooh

 

STILL I'M SAD
(Samwell-Smith/McCarthy)

See the stars come joining down from the skies
Gently passing they kiss your tears when you cry
See the wind of summer blow your hair upon your head
See the rain, the falling rain, it's rain
Still I'm sad

Oh my flowers, my tears are falling two days
They are driving the night profound, they are lost
Flower, flower the wind is blowing
Time into my heart
When the wind blows hard, we are apart
Still I'm sad

Oh, oh, oh, oh, Still I'm sad
Oh, oh, oh, oh, How I'm sad

 

DO YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES
(Blackmore/Dio)

Oh na na na na
Mystery in me is something I can't see
But I see you very well
You slippy, cool, nobody's fool
But there's something inside I can't tell

I know a poor man, a rich man
I know I can talk to a king
But nobody here is gonna tell me
I can't find out one thing

I see your glow around you
Open your arms 'cause
I'm walking to you, come straight or through
Maybe I'm wrong but
I know it won't take long to see
Do you close your eyes
Do you close your eyes
Do you close your eyes when you making love, yeah, yeah
Making sweet love to me, yeah

The logical friend said that
I know in the end
The things that make me smile
To right from the start, I take the image of your heart
and know it all the while

I know a rich man, a poor man
I know I can talk to a king, yeah
So nobody here is gonna make me believe
I can't find out one thing

I see your glow around you
Open your arms 'cause I'm coming, running, straight or through
I could be wrong but I know it won't take long to see
Do you close your eyes
Do you close your eyes
Do you close your eyes when you making love, yeah

Do you close your eyes
Do you close your eyes, I've gotta know
Do you close your eyes when you making love
