01. The Man Who Would Not Die

I have a noose around my neck
It is spun from my hopes and dreams
The ones who wronged and now are choking me

The hanging man, I am not hanged
To martyr's breath I must now cling
Until I face those who did this to me

On and on, I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until I
Have done what must be done
I am the man.
Who would not die

They made these gallows from black light
But the shining light of this truth
Will make them crumble and I will be free

To take back what once was mine
And then from gallows of bright steel
Hang them with the same rope
They made for me

On and on, I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until I
Have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
When their necks break then I
Have done what must be done
I am the man.
Who would not die

On and on, I'm cursed to live.
I am the man who would not die


02. Blackmailer

Wolves eat sheep tasting fear in their meant
Sheep like you always stare at defeat
You seattered and left me alone face to face
With the wolf at the door armed with nothing but faith

You expect everyone to be weak
Weak just like you and to fall at their knees
Allowing themselves to just be devoured
I wonder if wolves like the taste of a coward like you

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own beliefs

Blackmailer

The architect of my own living death
Overseer of a slow and a bitter decay
Rotten inside but I just did not see
Until the day when you blackmailed me

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own beliefs

Blackmailer


03. Smile Back At Death

Blessed father what is that the gods will for me
Is it their will that I should do this duet alone
I am a slave and what difference can I possibly make
When all I do is what I must so I don't die this day

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
So the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show than blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

In eternity echoes what we do in life
With honor and strength I must keep this true alive
Now its time for justice see the emperor defied
The last wish of dying man
To pursue what is right

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
So the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show than blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

They just don't know they are conquered
They continue to fight
Would we be any different
Wouldn't we bark and bite

For all that we hold dear
For your families and our life
Like each breath is our last
As we fight not to die

In this arena
I who will not die won't salute you
In this life or the next
My vengeance I will have

You turned me into a warrior slave
You made me kill than all
But as time goes you will see
It is just one more kill
Then it's done


04. While You Were Gone

I did not see
I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold, I was a stone
You were my own, while you were gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
These are the things I realized
While you were gone

Something is wrong
Inside my brain
And them my eyes start to complain
Time slows right down, my days drag on
Don't want to live, when you are gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
These are the things I realized
While you were gone

I did not see
I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold, I was a stone
I was on my own, while you were gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
These are the things I realized
While you were gone


05. Samurai

I am absolutely now prepared to pay the price
Even if I ultimately pay with my own life

Where did you give everything, to sacrifice it all
And without the will to die I know that I can't win

No mind, no pain, nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear in the valley of death

I'm willing to die, die, willing to die
Samurai
Die, willing to die, like a Samurai

Deep within my self is a decision that I made
To win it all, overwhelm those
who would want to bury me

To never, never yield and even with my only ?sprat?
To remain defiant, never to admit defeat

No mind, no pain, nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear in the valley of death

I'm willing to die, die, willing to die
Samurai
Die, willing to die, like a Samurai

Die!
Are you willing to die?
Die!
Are you willing to die?
Like a samurai

No mind, no pain, nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear in the valley of death

I'm willing to die, die, willing to die
Samurai
Die, willing to die, like a Samurai


06. A Crack In The System

We don't belong
We have no home
And see no boundaries
In this delighted world

When we have no certainty
They question our existence
Our right to live and breathe

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch22 system
We are trapped down in
A crack in the system
Crack in the system

Our DNA and fingerprints
And numbers day to day
Feed into their machines

They're eating all our dreams
They question our existence
Our right to live and breathe

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch22 system
We are trapped down in
A crack in the system
Crack in the system

I believe we are so much more
Than they can see
Than just a game of words and codes

They send us back and forth
And round and round we go
But deep inside
We're never moving at all

When we have no certainty
They question our existence
Our right to live and breathe

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch22 system
We are trapped down in
A crack in the system
Crack in the system


07. Robot

Robot slave
With silent rage
Growing inside of me

My first word is no answer
my birth now they will see

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

Free, they say I'm free
If I perform and I comply
I am only free to be
Just what they decide

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am


08. At The End Of The Day

I made a rod
It was for my own back
At the time I could not see it
But now it is clear

I rattle my brain for words
That I thought I knew as certainly
As my own name
But they are disappeared

What does it mean?
Does it mean anything?
What does it mean
At the end of the day

What words were they
And how careless and arrogant was I
To think I owned them
Without giving them the respect
Of being born onto a page
Gently by my own pen
Where they would stay
And live again and again and again

What was it for?
Was it for anything?
What was it for
At the end of the day

What does it mean?
Does it mean anything?
What does it mean
At the end of the day

You live where you lived
You sit where you sat
Nothing seems to have changed
At the end of the day


09. Waiting For My Life To Begin

I wake up to a grinding day
In a grinding week
In a grinding month
In a grinding year
Grinding away

The daily grind is grinding me
I just go to work
Then I go back home
And I try to sleep
And I go to work again

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to believe in

My dream it is just so real
There I am on stage
Singing in my band
For some crazy fans
I'm as tough as steel

And that is what I thought was real
It's amazing how
You can fool yourself
And believe this things
When you dread each day

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to believe in

Grinding on through restless sleep
Where my mind repeats repeats
Grinding on and on and on
Where has my precious life time gone

Grinding away
Grinding all my life away
Grinding away
I must start my life today

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to believe in


10. Voices From The Past

Never start a fight you cannot win
You'll be in a war that never ends
Making promises you cannot keep
Living with regrets that make you weep

Weeping I have tried to close the door
On the very past where I was born
Shutting out the past so I survive
But now I hear something in my mind

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices call me back

If i don't face the problems that I have
I know that they will just keep coming back
Even though I know that is the truth
Srill deny that I could ever choose

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing Voices
Voices call me back


11. The Truth Is One

Walking down the path of your life conditions
Facing up to everyday's contradictions
To find the inner quietsource of your bliss
All you need to know is there

Assume the legacy of the few who dared
And don't you be afraid
Embrace the paint
Unlock the power
Accept nature living in you

Eternity is now
Forever is today

The truth is one the answer is there
The truth is you the truth is me
Eternity is now forever is today
The truth is you the truth is me

The truth is one

Forget the promises
The fear of millions
The cause of their own future self extinction
Dance to your true inner voice

Let the flame of true will burn
And feel how life force takes control
Just when you thought no one would found you
The whole world shall surround you

Eternity is now
Forever is today

The truth is one the answer is there
The truth is you the truth is me
Eternity is now forever is today
The truth is you the truth is me

The truth is one


12. Serpent Hearted Man

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really right after all
Your light is real darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

Reborn trough the power of every new day
Not overwhelmed by the shadows of yesterday
In the eternal today I live
The ways of the universe manifest in my being

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really right after all
Your light is real darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

The joy of the past and the sorrow of yesterday
Are now left behind with my old shedded skin
Fragmented and lying now in dead ground
For I accept and face then whatever today may bring

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really right after all
your light is real darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

Three cycles of life now flow inside of you
The human the animal the spiritual man
And now in accord with all of natures way
The track of this serpent are now there for you to begin

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really right after all
Your light is real darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man
