    Lyrics

    The stars ignite as the sun sets
    And disappears in a river of dancing molten gold
    In the moon rise the lion steps out tonight

    No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
    No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains

    The office walls are closing in
    As the telex machines perversely sing ignored
    You're hypnotised and the lion roars within

    No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
    No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains
    Why are we here? not just to live and breathe
    I cannot sleep, I need the beast
    I need some action, I need destruction
    I'll return to the wild, I'll return to the child I said
    No sense of emotion adrift in the ocean
    Here we are knee-deep in stars, knee-deep in stars

    City nights caressed in a shroud
    All is quiet and the silence is tentatively loud
    You kiss the streets as you crawl on your hands and feet

    No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
    No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains

    Why are we here? not just to live and breathe
    I cannot sleep, I need the beast
    I need some action, I need destruction
    I'll return to the wild, I'll return to the child I said
    No sense of emotion adrift in the ocean
    Here we are knee-deep in stars, knee-deep in stars

    Moving in the darkness
    Phosphorus eyes, jungle pride
    A glisten of madness, a wave of sadness
    The lion never sleeps, he's never at peace
    He stalks so boldly, so nervous, so coldly
    Vicious serenity, perverse intensity
    Head bowed stretched proudly, embrace the earth
    Same blood, same soul, same breath, same goal

    The office walls are closing in, feel the sensation
    Telex machines perversely sing raw communication
    And you're hypnotised, a transformation
    The lion steps out tonight

    And you kiss the damp streets with ease
    As you crawl on your hands and feet
    Naked is the beast and the beast is forever free
    You are the lion, you are the lion of symmetry
    Golden warrior savage, savage creature
    You are the lion, you are the lion of symmetry

    No law, no sin, no rip it up and start again
    No tears, no pain, no fear, no more chains...
