Scorpions - Hour I Lyrics




So here we are
It's hour one
And it's a nightmare
There's nothing left
And yet it's good to be alive
There's no use crying
Cause the universe is not fair
The wicked and the innocent
Are fighting to survive

Child stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Human nature is the reason
For our downfall
And we deserve it playing God
With our machines
Our religions are a prison
That's our fatal flaw
Bombs are flying
While we're sleeping with the enemy

Child stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Look at me, right at me
When I'm telling you to stay down
Come to me, run to me
I am begging you to stay down
Cling to me desperately
All you gotta do is stay down
Pay attention my child down

Look at me, right at me
When I'm telling you to stay down
Come to me, run to me
I am begging you to stay down
Cling to me desperately
All you gotta do is stay down
Pay attention my child

Child, stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
You better shut your mouth
Don't make a sound

Child, stay down, stay down
You better run for cover underground
Child stay down, stay down
Stay down

  14. MoonChilango

    same thing that Metallica tried to follow a trend of music but I think it worked good for scorpions. mainly because they had better production.

  15. Isidora Gallegos

    this song has really Heavy Metal sounds but it sound soo great! love it <3 <3 <3

    judasmetal80

    Heavy Metal it is!

  16. Yoyo

    I'll say the same thing I said when I bought this when it came out: they've still got it!

  17. Jay Hollinger

    John 5 wrote this song for the Scorpions. Would probably explain the heavier/choppy guitar sound. I like the different sound it has in comparison to earlier Scorpions music.

    Barefoot67

    is he playing too?

    nnabaissify

    Wrong john only did the siren sound for the song
    I mean I have only respect for jonh 5 but his song contribution was minimal as we can hear on one of jonhs interview
    But was nice to hear him

  18. Camila Romero

    a really Heavy Metal sound

    Isidora Gallegos

    yeah! but it sounds really good on this song!

    agbrenv

    heard this song in my colleagues car, had to check it out

  19. TheJuniorDane

    What a song!

  20. sturmbringer01

    Looks like 4 grannies tried to find hour 1 ministries and got their ears blown off instead....

    Bambi Pardis it's a right song

    sturmbringer01 harlious

  21. andre santos

    rock n roll

  22. andre santos

    muito show

  23. IAmTheMetalOne

    I don't like the Scorpions but this song... FUCKING ROCKS!

  24. Vakhtang Eliozishvili

    One of the best

  25. Eric Brandt

    Agreed, I always consider their 70's and 00's material as heavy metal.

    judasmetal80

    Correct! Scorpions is Heavy Metal, not only hard rock

  26. Jonathan BarSela

    Heavy as it is, I just don't feel like this song fits Scorpions. Sure, they've always been a tad heavier than the rest, but this crunch, the dissonance and especially the D-tuning alienated me from the album for a long while, which is a shame. The Game of Life a better IMHO.

  27. shadowspast1

    This song is badass as a whole, even with the fact in mind that John 5 wrote this

  28. Costa Margarida

    great comebackto their roots by scorpions on this song.

  29. Andrei Trimbez

    this is not hard rock, its heavy metal.....plus no hard rock song is played in drop C tuning.. d'oh

    judasmetal80

    100 % correct it's heavy metal from mighty Scorps.

  30. saarb737

    few persons: average of about 56 in age.....
    knew how to make hard rock songs!!
    and that song is soooo great!!
    its not too hard but not soft eithter!!
    i heard about that band only a day ago!!(if not consider to listen to one song by them that i didnt knew its theres..)

  31. David Díaz de Rivera

    This song is harder than shitting and getting your anus split

  32. FFoustt

    @ScorpionsRock99 where did you hear solo there :?

  33. max young

    1 [erson needs to feel special!! My favorite part is the solo at 0:26 to 0:34

  34. W8n4Je5u5

    Love this song! Jesus saves!

  35. Júlia Feliciano

    This song is the coolest one. From the whole world.
