01. Wake The Sleeper

Wake The Sleeper…


02. Overload

Tonight you're going to
Overload your mind
Move into another world
There for you online
A high speed chase that
Leads you to the unknown
Time will disappear so fast
For you and you alone

A universe in isolation
Feeding your imagination

No-one cares about
The role you play
Generations lost in space
A million miles away
Life moves faster
Than the speed of sound
You think you've got
Complete control
It makes your world go
Round and round

Digital communication
Feeding your imagination

Coded warning
Now you're falling into overload
Countdown started, no way out
Hit the mother lode

The power that you crave
For more and more
You try to understand the things
That you are fighting for
When multi channel meltdown
Gets to you
You'll reach the breakpoint
When it's over, what you gonna do

Seeing your determination
Feeding your imagination

A universe in isolation
Feeding your imagination
You're looking for a new sensation
Gotta find a real sensation

Into overload…


03. Tears Of The World

Come and share my moonlit stair
Things of beauty everywhere
So much luck it isn't fair
'Cos the tears of the world
Keep falling

I got the best of everything
A better world I could not dream
You should see what I have seen
As the tears of the world keep falling

Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we stand together
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we stand together

So much wealth on every face
You're in the fight to win the place
Or are you just a hopeless case
As the tears of the world keep falling

You'd like to think that it's not cruel
Design your future by their rules
You worship at the feet of fools
While the tears of the world
Keep falling

Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we stand together
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we take control together

We pushed our way to reach our goal
Turning silver into gold
We need to take complete control
As the tears of the world keep falling

The great divide we know so well
Will be there at the last farewell
Unless we break this living hell
As the tears of the world keep falling

Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we stand together
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
The tears of the world keep falling
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Until we learn to stand together


04. Light Of A Thousand Stars

We stand together like brothers
Under troubled sky
So crazy how we came to live this life
Cross my heart but I refuse to die
I'm coming home to you

They never gave us any guarantee
All they want to see is bravery
I can't live with this misery
I'm coming home to you

And I don't know
Who's on whose side
Guide me with your love

Give me the light of a thousand stars
Shine my way back to you
Show me the road
Get me over the line
There's no limit to what love can do

Don't need no badge of honour
On my sleeve
The fear of dying gonna set me free
A part of you is still a part of me
I'm coming home to you

'Cos I keep your picture
Close to my heart
You're the sweetest thing in this life
And if I ever get back home
I'm gonna fight to
Keep our dream alive

You know that men are born
And men will die
I look at what I am surrounded by
Gotta get out before I lose my mind
I'm coming home


05. Heaven's Rain

I look back on those days
At the permanent haze
And the dark that surrounded me
Then good fortune arrived
I saw life in your eyes
You talked about changing views
Freedom to choose, darkness to light

There lies the kingdom
Of beautiful stories
Pure as the heaven's rain
Shine on the heartache
The bittersweet glory
Shine over everyone

Down the road I would fall
The wrong side of the wall
Sound of madness
Moved in for the kill
Then good fortune arrived
I saw life in your eyes
You talked about taking me
To a place I should know
Just you and me

There's a hole in the sun
Where I wanted to run
There were clouds in the open sea
Then good fortune arrived
I saw life in your eyes
You talked about showing me
A place I should know
Just you and me

Shine over everyone…


06. Book Of Lies

The story of my life
Was written there in front of me
The book revealed
The lines upon my face
After chapter one
The images of better times
Turned into a classic cold embrace

Just throw the book away

Through your eyes you'll write again
And the book of lies
Cuts deep into my mind
Did I steal your heart
And leave it in the rain
I'll never know, no I'll never know

It's me I recognise
Or am I getting in too deep
It's getting harder now
To turn the page
Did I read my name
Or is it just coincidence
Only what is true will cure my rage

Coming to the end
Sentences are bitter sweet
Paragraphs that leave me feeling cold
But it's all too late
The written world will always be
The essence of how well
The story's told


07. What Kind Of God

I rode to my homeland
And carried the memory
Over the valley below
And the heart of a nation
The war cry was blazing
And the loss of my brothers and sons
Were all in the name of civilization

The empty moon saw I was leaving
with pride and hope in my heart
The mountains talk of
Far away dreaming

So came the invasion
Across from a faraway place
Into the new world
With guns and new order
They gave us religion
Then took away all of our rights
And forced us to live
Behind their new border

The four winds blow
And bring new vision
Where children laugh without fear
The land will speak
The people will listen

But yesterday my life was fading
With every reason to die
Ten miles to the north
As I rode my red horse
In the dying sun
And then when I saw
The white soldiers
One hundred or more in a line
Kill for the land
Saying their law will stand
What kind of god do they see?

The fighting is over
No matter what fear they might bring
My country will live
The dust clouds are falling
I stood by the river
And breathing the air that is life
Within the black hills
My spiritual calling

What kind of god can this be?


08. Ghost Of The Ocean

A ghost of the ocean
Tells of the women of the sea
They ran from oppression
In the forgotten history

No innocents
No leader to defend
No god, no government
And it's hard to believe
They were riders on the sea

Women of fortune
Always to be prepared to die
Blood on the knife edge
Flag of the sea lord flying high

A world of action strong and free
Adventure war and loyalty
The mermaid tyrant loved to fight
She ties the noose and pulls it tight

Treacherous island
Somewhere to hide on no man's land
Ships in the harbour
Waiting to hear the battle plan


09. Angels Walk With You

I only know what I'm feeling
Do you know it's true
'Cos I've searched for you
'Cos I believe in you

Why do we walk in shadows
While this world falls apart
'Cos I'd die for you
'Cos I know angels walk with you

In my hands I hold nothing
The more I have the less I use
If I'd gone down that road forever
I would not have found you

And a new world with a new morning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
A new life with a real meaning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
'Cos angels walk with you

If we sit and do nothing
Will the light surely fade?
Can I trust in you forever?
If you show me the way

A new world with a new morning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
A new life with a real meaning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
'Cos angels walk with you
Yeah, walk with you, with you
Yeah, walk with you
'Cos I'd die for you
'Cos I know angels walk with you

A new world with a new morning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
A new life with a real meaning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
A new world with a new morning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
A new life with a real meaning
A new sunrise on a brand new day
'Cos angels walk with you


10. Shadow

There is illusion in my mirror
I have to show concern
'Cos what is left is right
Don't know which way to turn
And there is someone who is like me
But all they want to do is stare
And he would like to find the key
But I'm not there

Shadow, nothing but a shadow
Sunlight, never see the sunlight
Power, I got a special power
Shadow, nothing but a shadow

And now I'm moving
Down the sidewalk
Just staring at the ground
And if I don't look up the scene
Will change around
And we are residents of nowhere
What do we really say
Like a marionette just
Acting out a play

I thought I saw a face that I knew
While running through the crowd
Then she turned to look at me
I didn't really feel a thing
Just floating through the air
A trick of light for all to see


11. War Child

Open your eyes, you're still here
Still safe, at peace in this world
So great, you're free
You don't have to fight for your life
But just say, just say
There's fire from the sky
And you're burning alive

Why all this pain and
Poison in her mind
What can you change
When hatred made her blind soldiers
No reason to look into her eyes
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Lifeless expressions
Destroyed all conceptions
For children in the street
Who's there to help you
When all is forgotten and
Torn apart by fear
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Oh please don't cry
Oh no war child

The struggle for power
That grows by the hour
Like the blood beneath her feet
Dispering with heartache
There must be somebody
To help her in such need
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Open your eyes, you're still here
Still safe, at peace in this world
So great, you're free
You don't have to fight for your life
War child
