01. Street Fighting Saviours

Street fighting saviours
Flashes down the street
Got my mind on the favours
Damn hard to make ends meet

Way above the action
Next to a liars mind
Trying to build some attraction
I guess it's hard to find

Don't take it for granted - I can see through you
Ain't got the answers - But I got plans for you
Don't take it for granted - I can see through you
I came empty handed - But I'm never falling through

Shivers down my backbone
Need to hitch a ride
Spaced out and on my own
Sometimes it's hard to hide


02. Young Man, Old Soul

You've been down this road before
Heard this story a thousand times or more
With a cynical bitter stare
You watch your life go by…bye, bye

A young man
With an old soul
Open your mind
Don't close that door

No matter how high you climb
It's never high enough
Can't enjoy the moment, no
Never satisfied with what you got


03. Killing Time

Crawling on my knees
Fumbling in the dark
Turning wheel of fate
Keeps spinning

I've seen 'em come and go
Got the staying power
But I got nothing to show

How my life turned out to be
A rhyme without reason
A self fulfilling prophecy

Killing time
Don't know what I'm doing
Killing time
Searching for that something
Killing time…

Back on my knees again
Life's a losing game
This wheel of fate
Keeps on spinning


04. Fools Gold

Seeing is believing
Or so they say
But who's to judge
What's real anyway?

I know it's fake
So get off your high horse
You'd rather have this dream
Than your tears and heartaches

I'm sorry
But I can't help you
I'm really sorry
But I'm busy chasing fools gold

It's always been this way
I gotta ride my own wave
Can't intellectualise
There's no compromise

I'm not like you
I can only be me
And that's something
You never quite figured out


05. Black Feathers

Been ploughing the dark
Seeking shelter in hell
Where evil dwells
The more you saw
The less you believed…the less you believed

Casting pearls before swine
They could never see. They could not bleed
Decadence rules divine
In this sick and twisted world we call home

You'll see…
See another mountain
Calling your name
Another way to wander

All the things you thought wrong, all the things you thought right
No longer carved in stone
These wounds from the past
Will follow you
As long as you let them last

The rising of the sun
Is seen by everyone
Black feathers…
Black Feathers at dawn


06. Beneath The Sun

Always there to gloat
Revel in your failure
Echo in your head
A familiar voice

I am the clown in the mirror
The part of you, you hate
Never far away
Just there…
Beneath the skin

You sold your soul to me
A long, long time ago
Your own insecurity
Made me your master


07. Feejee Mermaid

Instrumental.


08. Dance Of The Dragon King

Moving
At a frantic pace
Super fluid…
So graceful

Dreaming the reality
It's magical
Thunder, fire and rain
The dance dragon king

Mesmerised…
As fate has its way
Relentless…
The art of death


09. Tall Tales

Rising up -I've had enough of
Your lying and backstabbing
Who wants to listen? Who wants to know?
You got a problem and you let it show

I'm no fool -I see through you
Pitiful, that's what you are
You don't know me, you never did
And you sure as hell never will now

The things you say behind my back
Distorted view of a jealous mind
A jealous mind can be excused
But who are you…who are you to judge me?

So you never believed in me…
To tell you the truth
I never thought much of you…

Telling all tall tales
Makes you feel good (makes you look bad)
But that black tongue
Is dragging you down


10. The Lunatic Fringe

Demon rising slowly
Or is it all in my mind?
A reflection twisted
He knows me all too well

A face in the mirror
A man I do not know
Hopes and aspirations
A thousand broken promises

Fear is growing slowly
It's drowning - killing my soul
Waiting, contemplating
The demon is reborn


11. Look Back

No underhanded lies
Better look me in the eyes
Speak the truth if you are still my friend

'Cause I won't be fooled
By any calculated tries
Better change your plan
Or take your final bow

Look back
I never look back

To make me stick around
You have to compromise
It's a give and take
You gotta share the crown
'Cause I won't be hooked
By any mystifying lines
Watch me stand alone
Like I always have
