01. Line Of Thoughts

Music by S. Gommans
[Instrumental]


02. Beneath

Music by S. Gommans/ L. v. Gils/ F. Jansen/ L. v. Gerven/ A. Borgman/ B. Maas
Lyrics by F. Jansen
Bewildered by silence
struck by its questions and lucid ways to make us aware
I did not know how cruel that could be
That so many cases will never be solved
that so many stories will never be told
I did not know how cruel that could be

Fighting a war that rages inside
the world can't see the hate that burns in there
how can we face what lies beneath
if we just fear and don't fight back?

How many questions left unanswered?
How many tears and inner strength shall we need?
How many times can we encounter this again and again?
How many things exist that blind us?
How many forms of brutal violence can we see?
How many images of pain will make us numb
so hard, so cruel, we fail to see, we fail to feel?
So afraid, even without the courage of despair

Fighting a war that rages inside
the world can't see the hate that burns in there
how can we face what lies beneath
if we just fear and don't fight back?

Afraid of ourselves, afraid to stand up
I did not know how cruel that could be

We failed to see, we failed to feel
still afraid, what if you love someone?
What if this happened to your loved ones?
What would you do if you were there at that time?
What makes you act like nothing happened?
Nothing's wrong, you're doing fine?
What makes you think you are immune to this?
What drove us so far to the edge of tolerance?
If judging and accusing is so easy, then why
why still?

Fighting a war that rages inside
the world can't see the hate that burns in there
how can we face what lies beneath
if we just fear and don't fight back?


03. My Choice

Music by S. Gommans/ L. v. Gils/ F. Jansen/ L. v. Gerven/ A. Borgman/ B. Maas
Lyrics by F. Jansen
Is it not the choosing that makes the life we live so intricate?
Are the options we have too endless to control?
Can we oversee the offers and their demands and their goals?
Can we oversee our own needs if we do not know
What it is we really want?

Our minds, instead of our hearts
What we feel confuses our thoughts

Security, an ancient quest
Standing alone, the ultimate test
Still we reach for warmth in the materialized luxuries in life
The times have changed but we are stille the same
Another choice 'cause we still don't know

Chorus:
Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?

A choice without the illusion that luck is for sale
'cause I have all that money can buy

Choir:
A choice means freedom
And endless options
Can we survey that?
Can freedom be controlled?
The option's bitter
It leaves a part of you behind the borders of your choice

Chorus:
Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?

Let me see where I belong
Let me be a little part of it
Can I choose my way in life?
Can I dream, can I feel, could I know my choice?


04. Glorifying Means

Music by S. Gommans/ L. v. Gils/ F. Jansen/ L. v. Gerven/ A. Borgman/ B. Maas
Lyrics by F. Jansen
Grunts:
Fantasies, misery came together
in the world of guilt and pain
A neverending game

Do not reject me, I was better of without
But in my agonized existence I needed to be free

Grunts:
Free my mind, free my soul
I do not need to feel no more
Feel no more, I'm better off this way
Alone, far from the past and its brutal face
I still feel the disgust and pain
Let me be free

Chorus:
This is my life today, this is the way it went out of control
I cannot do without these glorifying means, my remedy
These amazing illusions, fantasies

Grunts:
Fanatsy, not for me, like another mirror of reality
Another point of view

Don't disbelieve me, I really tried to do without
But with sadness as a companion it's hard to do
Without the seduction, to become someone I'm not
But in this beautiful deception I'll overcome the night
Another day, another week, I'll overcome time

Choir:
Colors seem to flow, they seem to come alive
While the sound of life is stronger than before
It's more than a dream, this is so real
I swim and fly, I never feel more than I need, than I fear
I roam, I cry, I am paralyzed
I can fight the world!
The sense of time is important now
Just like the past, just like right now
There's no illusion that this is for real!

Grunts:
Observe me, control me
Tell me what is best, what's good
Tell me how it worked for you
Tell me how to find myself, find resepct, find the strength
Facing life so pure and clean, mean and hard
All these words, can't cure nor heal


05. The Evil That Men Do

Music & lyrics by B. Dickinson/ S. Harris/ A. Smith
Love is a razor and I walked the line
On that silver blade
Slept in the dust with his daughter
Her eyes red with
The slaughter of innocence
But I will pray for her
I will call her name out loud
I would bleed for her
I only I could see her now

Living on a razors edge
Balancing on a ledge
Living on a razors edge

The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...
The evil that men do lives on and on...

Circle of fire my baptism of joy and at an end it seems
The seventh lamb slain
The book of life opens before me
But I will pray for you
And some day I may return
I would die for you
Beyond is where I learn


06. One Day I'll Fly Away

Music & lyrics by J. Sample/ W. Jennings
I may get along, when love is gone
Still, you made your mark, here in my heart

One day I'll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do for me?
When will love be through with me?

I follow the night
Can't stand the light
When will will I begin
My life again?

One day I'll fly away
Leave your love to yesterday
What more can your love do fot me?
When will love be through with me?
Why live life from dream to dream
And dread the day when dreaming ends
