STROKING THE GENIE

(Lyrics by Steve Hasting)

 

First Verse

There’s death in the water.

There’s death in the streets.

Torture and slaughter.

In the summer heat

 

Everybody is praying

For a new religious sign

Everybody is saying

It’s our lives on the line.

 

Chorus

Stroking the genie to save us all

Searching for something before we fall

Calling for redemption on new romantic nights

Pushing til our backs are against the wall, we fight

 

Second Verse

Our heroes are demons

Our villains are heroes

We keep on dreaming

When are chances are zero

 

Everybody is lying

Somehow to survive

Everybody is trying

Just to stay alive

 

Chorus

Stroking the genie to save us all

Searching for something before we fall

Calling for redemption on new romantic nights

Pushing til our backs are against the wall, we fight

 

Bridge

All this talk just makes me run away

Now I’m thinking, will I see another day

These infernos are trying to drag me down

But I’ve got to keep on trying before I drown

 

(Solo)

 

Chorus

Stroking the genie to save us all

Searching for something before we fall

Calling for redemption on new romantic nights

Pushing til our backs are against the wall, we fight
