RAGE HARD 12"

Written by Gill/Johnson/Nash/O'toole

Listen, do you want to know a secret, 
move with me inside the strange world of the twelve inch.
Where nothing is as it seems, 
where everything has its place and there's a place for everything, 
and anything can happen. 

Let me take you on a tour of the twelve inch, 
using this special extension of rage hard as our example.
We have begun.  It is of course Frankie, and Frankie only.
Around we go, under, through, up and under.

Watch out here for the guitar, let is sustain.  
Now our favourite the funky guitar. 
Always note the sequencer, this will never let us down.

Let it have its wicked way, we are sliding good building fast , 
the perky percussion. How does it feel, 
The God like bass guitar.
A hint of backing vocals Rage .
A lust of deep dark synthesizer.

A we shall be teased by a long merciless reverb.  
The breakdown so you can lie down.
The whip, if you know what I mean.  Do what you are told.  
Those repeat echoes.
An essential part of the twelve inch is the climax.

Yes yes yes

But first the anti climax, The lads with electric disgust. 
Paul Rutherford here for the smell of it.
How does it feel - hard,  Do what you are told, 
move with me over the thrill of the twelve inch, 

Do what you are told, the whip, Do what you are told, the whip, 
Do what you are told. The fall and the rise, the whip, 
the fall, the whip, we are sliding good, building fast, 

The beginning and the end.  
the rush and the thrust, the speed and the sweat. 
The vocals of Holly Johnson.

Yes yes yes - rage

We are at the centre of a riff, 
The fall and the rise, the beginning and the end.
The rush and the thrust, the speed and the sweat. 
It is of course Frankie and Frankie only.

You flippin me off.

The climax, the climax.

Rage.

Laugh like the head of Apollo
Young and strong on the wings of tomorrow
Rise up in millions get off your knees
Dispelling the demons yeah
In the valley of danger
We all work together, sculptures in sorrow
With love light to follow, on
Sweet head of Apollo

Rage hard, into the light
Rage hard, doing it right, doing it right
Rage Hard, against the dark
Rage Hard, make your mark

Let the tournament begin
Don't give up and don't give in
Strength to rise up, strength to win
Strength to save the world from losing

Rage Hard, into the light
Rage Hard, doing it right
Rage Hard, against the dark
Rage Hard

Rage!

Rage Hard

The blue eyes of children
They shine without fear
Hope is the future, with oceans of cheer
Nothing to fear
There's nothing to fear
Though laughter of angels resounding
From heaven keep fighting the favours
Of charlatan saviours, charlatan saviours

Rage hard, into the light
Rage hard, doing it right, doing it right
Rage Hard, against the dark
Rage Hard, make your mark

Let the tournament begin
Don't give up and don't give in

Rage hard, into the light
Rage hard, doing it right
Rage Hard, against the dark
Rage Hard, make your mark

I don't know which way to go
My love's like driven snow
When we past the test of time
My love you shall be mine
And if only, lost and lonely
Is all that's wrong with me, we'll be free
Be free, be free

Laugh like the head of Apollo
Young and strong on the wings of tomorrow
Rage Hard
Rage Hard
Let the tournament begin
Don't give up and don't give in

Rage Hard, into the light
Rage Hard, doing it right
Let the tournament begin
Don't give up and don't give in
Strength to rise up, strength to win
Strength to save the world from losing
