Lyrics for the album Renegade by Thin Lizzy

1. Angel Of Death


Oh my god
Theres millions of them!

Ive seen a fire start in frisco
The day that the earth quaked
Ive seen buildings a-blazing
Throwing up in flames

I heard men, women and children
Crying out to their God for mercy
But their God didnt listen
So they were burned alive

They went down, down, deep underground
In the great disaster

I was hanging out in berlin
In the year one thousand nine hundred and thirty nine
Ive seen hitlers storm troopers
March right across the maginot line

Ive seen two world wars
Ive seen men send rockets out into space
I foresee a holocaust
An angel of death descending to destroy the human race

Down, down, deep undergound
A great disaster

In the sixteenth century there was a french philosopher
By the name of nostradamus
Who prophesised that in the late twentieth century
An angel of death shall waste this land

A holocaust the likes of which
This planet had never seen
Now, I ask you
Do you believe this to be true?

I was standing by the bedside
The night that my father died
He was crying out in pain
To his God he said, have mercy, mercy!

His body was riddled with a disease
Unknown to man so he expected no cure
But before he died that night
He was lost, insane

He went down, down, deep underground
A great disaster

Youll go down, down, deep underground
A great disaster

I think theyve got now!


2. Renegade


He's just a boy that his lost his way
He's a rebel that has fallen down
He's a fool been blown away
To you and me he's a renegade

He's a clown that we put down
He's a man that doesnt fit
He's a king but not in this town
To you and me he's a renegade

But he is a king when hes on his own
He's got a bike and thats his throne
And when he rides he's like the wind
To you and me he's a renegade

He's just a boy who has lost his sights
He's a stranger, prowls the night
He's a devil, thats right
To you and me hes a renegade

Check it out, check his face
Look at his eyes, theyre so sly
I wonder why he cries from the inside
I wonder why hes a renegade

Oh please, I'm on my begged bended knees
Oh please, please heed my call
He's just a boy that has lost his way
He's just a boy, thats all


3. The Preassure Will Blow


Set me on my destination
Point me the way to my position
Whats the meaning of my mission
I have made my decision clear

I dont need another reason
I dont want anymore prime time
I have made my decision
Not for the first but for the last time

Im setting on slow
Im building it up
Im letting it go
The pressure will blow on time

I dont want another story
You can place it with your nursery rhymes
I dont want to take the glory
Why dont you and him take it this time

I dont need another reason
I cant make another plan
I know youre both in secret liason
So we must go our separate ways

Im setting on slow
Im building it up
Im letting it go
The pressure will blow on time

So Ill keep pushing my position
Till the pressure builds it well
But I keep pressing your decision
Till youve made your mind up as well

I cant take another season
I cant make another play
I know youre in secret liason
So we must go our separate ways

Im setting on slow
Im building it up
Im letting it go
The pressure will blow on time


4. Leave This Town


I better keep myself from being busted
I better keep myself out of jail
cause I aint got a friend to get me trusted
Thats why my mama sends my money through the mail

Ive been down on my luck
Ive been down on my wealth
Im gotta stop taking care of business
Start taking care of my health

Ive gotta leave this town
Ive gotta leave this town behind
Ive gotta leave this town tonight

Well I set off down the main street
With such a long, long way to go
But before I started I was cornered on the corner
Still waiting for my sugar to show

Ive been down on my luck
Ive been down on my wealth
Ive gotta stop taking care of somebodys elses business
Start taking care of myself

Ive gotta leave this town
Ive gotta leave this town behind
Ive gotta leave this town tonight

I was fooling around with the sheriffs daughter
She was a real fine fox
But the sheriff he came after
And threatened to lock me in a cell box

He showed me his magnum
He showed me his shotgun
He stuck it in my face
And said, boy, I think you best be gone

Ive gotta leave this town
Ive gotta leave this town behind
Ive gotta leave this town tonight


5. Hollywood


They say people out in hollywood
Live their life out in black and white
Theyre living out a technicolor dream
Next day theyre a star overnight

Not like living in new york
Man, its tougher
Not like in london town
Boy, you suffer

Nobody give a break
When youre down on your luck
Everybodys on the take
When youre down on your luck
You cant make a mistake
When youre down on your luck

People out in hollywood
They got a lot of class
You see the boys strutting down the boulevard
Trying to make a pass

Not like in new york
Its high rise, its concrete and complex
Not like in london town
It reigns down on its subjects

Nobody give a damn
When youre down on your luck
Nobody understands
When youre down on your luck
Lady chance, she wont dance
When youre down on your luck

People out in hollywood
They can make it to the stars
They can reach the screen
Drive around in big expensive convertible cars

Not like in new york
All youve got is broadway
Not like in the west end of london
You cant make it no way

Nobody give a damn
When youre down on your luck
Nobody understands
When youre down on your luck
Youve got to strut your stuff
When youre down on your luck

You cant take it easy, it aint good enough
When youre down on your luck
Everybodys on the make
When youre down on your luck
Nobody give a fair deal
When youre down on your luck

Nobody understands my uncle sam
When youre down on your luck
Im ready for the dance
When youre down on your luck
I gotta make a dollar holler
When youre down on your luck


6. No One Told Him


Hey listen closely
Listen while I tell you
Why he loves you
And what he misses mostly

Its pointless his pretending
Hes got a broken heart
A broken heart
That needs mending

You didnt tell him
You didnt want to see him again

Hes going crazy
Hes reckless
Without you baby
Hes helpless

Its deadly how you broke him
Hes a fool
Without you baby
Im not joking

You didnt tell him
You didnt want to see him again

Now when Im down
My friends they come around
And when Im upset
My friends they help me forget

But how can he forget?
He hasnt got a friend
cos no one told him
You didnt want to see him again

Hes all washed up and washed out
Without you baby
Every place he goes
Hes thrown out

Hes turned vicious
Hes malicious
Just goes to show how much he misses
You know what

He wouldnt tell me
You didnt want to see him again

You didnt tell him
You didnt want to see him again

I couldnt tell him
You didnt want to see him again

I didnt tell him
You didnt want to see him again


7. Fats


Check out fats, hes a real cool cat
Hes got a black and white tux with lots of class
He says, I love that jazz. I love that razz-ma-tazz. i love to swing.
I just go crazy when you give me room to do my thing. thats fats

Well, check out fats, hes a real cool cat
Hes got bright white spats and sharp dark trilby hat
Hes got a chick thats slick and I like her looks
And I like the way her lipstick, it matches the carnation on his tux

I love his jazz, I love his style, it makes me feel so nice
Oh fats, wont you play for ma a while? thats fats
Oh well, sigmund freud, he gets very annoyed
He was checking out fats and waller just dont like that cat

He said, I dont like his looks, I dont like his fashion.
I love his jazz, I love his style, it makes me feel so nice
Oh fats, wont you play for me a while? not that fats
Hes such a real cool cat, thats fats. nobody plays that jazz, not like fats


8. Mexican Blood


She was a mexican girl, she had mexican blood
I seen it the night that she died
She was a mexican girl, she had mexican blood
Oh how she could drive that mexican boy wild

Hes on the run near el paso
And hell cross all across america
Hes leaving behind old mexico
And his girl that pretty mexican girl that died

She had mexican blood

He was a mexican boy with a mexican smile
And he drank a little tequila
He was a mexican boy in a mexican town
And oh how he loved his young senorita

Now and then hed cross the rio grande
And hed come back a wanted hunted man
And his mexican girl was his mexican prize
And that girl was his girl that pretty mexican girl that died

She had mexican blood

He was a cowboys boy and a cowboys son
And on his side he had a gun
He was a cowboys boy, he was the law
He was out looking for someone

That night he rode into town
The mexican boy tried to gun him down
Thats when his heart broke up inside cause lying on the ground
Was his girl that pretty mexican girl, she died

She had mexican blood

He loved her and she loved him
And when he lost her
Oh how it hurt him

He loved her
I seen it the night she died
Thats when he lost her

Now his heart is broken
He loved her and she loved him
And when he lost her he lost everything


9. It's Getting Dangerous


The man finds himself alone for the first time in his life
Hes always got a problem, hes got to work it out wrong or right
Hes got to work it out, hes so lonely in the night
Hes got to work it all alone

Now who in the world would believe that hes got another trick up his sleeve
And who in the world wants to know which way should he go
Which way should he turn? which way should he learn?
Which day should he stop? which way to the top?

I remember him when we were friends, when we were young, way back then
I still can recall when we were small how he tried his best to warn us all

This living on his own has turned his heart to stone and its all pain
He sits out on his own and eats his heart out alone in the pouring rain
Now who in the world would have know
That just a few years ago his love could have grown and grown

Through the rain, the sleet and snow
But the rain, the sleet and snow chills the heart and kills the soul
So the let the cold winds blow
What he doesnt see he doesnt know

I remember him when we were friends, when we were young, way back then
I recall it all when we were small how he tried his best to warn us all

I remember it still, I always will when we were friends way back then
I recall it all when we were small how he tried his best to warn us all
He said, watch out for the danger
He said, watch out

The man is a winner for the first time in his life
He looks a little thinner but he says hey that doesnt matter
But if you look closely
Youll see a cold smug self-satisfactory smile behind

And now that he has won it doesnt matter how or which way it was done
Now that hes in control, revenge is in his heart and soul
The power is at his fingertips, vengeance is on his lips
But the power he fought to control now has got him in its grips

I remember him when we were friends, when we were young, way back then
I recall it all when we were small how he tried his best to warn us all

I remember it still, I always will when we were friends way back then
I recall it all when we were small how he tried his best to warn us all

I remember him when we were friends, when we were young, way back then
But now were all grown up and were strangers
You see, bit by bit, part by part, we slipped and slipped
Till wed grown apart and now were strangers
