02. Balance

Glad to see your wide awake
this is the great escape
from a life that tried to mould you
and the lie it sold you

What would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?

Did you try to reason why
look yourself in the eye
what you are is all you have been
what will be is all you do now

What would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?
what would you do?
what wouldn't you do?

Spill a tear as your sense of self slowly
melts away
melts away
melts away

Until death's mirror reflects
the meaning of our lives
we wander aimless and mesmerised
as the fear starts to rise


03. Closer

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
All your life

Shine in time
Shine in time
Shine in time
Until you find

Your closer
Your closer
to the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth

That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
to be trapped inside
All your life

Your closer
Your closer
Your closer
to the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth


04. Pressure

As the pressure grows and these feelings flow
trample on bodies, bodies in holes of faith
times I've asked the lord for forgiveness
while kept under a spell of a sweating locust's breath.
No need to tell me 'cos its written on your face
sliding down now with the black lights shining

I don't care where you go you won't get away from me
black as the night is day filled with no sympathy
marching down the hall for a misery
I don't care where you go you won't get away from me...

Mouth tastes of sick stomach twisting inside
everything's wrong and I can't get away
the gravity of fear you can feel it coming near
it's coming straight for you it'll twist and drag you down

I don't care where you go you won't get away from me...


05. Release

Seeing is believing but I don't want to know
walk on through the wasteland I just can't let go
face down I just break down when I see you cry all the
time (sometimes)

Hold on please hold on to me tempt fate release escape

Someone now is screaming as the flames fly high
think now that we're lost here and we don't know why
face down I just break down when I see you cry all the time

Hold on please hold on to me tempt fate release escape

Behind those grey and lonely eyes
unforgotten by time
reality is dawning
our spirit is awakening
and somewhere in the hurricane
hope is waiting
crying in the distance
and calling out your name


06. Forgoten Hopes

Hey you rotting in your alcoholic shell
Banging on the walls of your intoxicated mind
Do you ever wonder why you were left alone
As your heart grew colder and finally turned to stone

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Don't you ever dream of escaping...

Pathetic oblivion
Forgotten hopes buried in your soul's lonely grave
Pathetic oblivion
Remember how you were before you locked your heart away

Did I punish you for dreaming?
Did I break your heart and leave you crying?
Do you ever dream of escaping...
Don't you ever dream of escaping?


08. Are You There?

Are you there?
the wondeful to know
All like ghosts
All the ghosts
Freak my selfish out
(my) mind is happy
Need to learn to let it go
I know you'd do no harm to me

Since you've been gone I've been lost inside
Tried and failed as we walked by the riverside
oh I wish you could see the love in her eyes
the best friend that eluded you lost in time
Burned alive in the heat of a grieving mind

oh what can I say now?
And it couldn't be more wrong cos there's no one there
Unmistakebly least and without a care
oh (did we) lose all the love that we could have shared
And its wearing me down
And its turning me round
And I can't find a way now
to find it out
oh where are you when I need you?
Are you there?

Are you there?


09. One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now you're gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone

I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

Somehow I knew you could never, never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wished, I wished you could have stayed


10. Pulled Under At 2000 Metres A Second

Just freedom is only a hallucination
that wait's at the edge of the distant horizon
and we are all strangers in global illusion
wanting and needing impossible heaven
Chasing the dream as they swim out to sea
the mirage ahead says that they can be free
become lost in delusion drowning their reason
swept on by the current of selfish ambition
Frightened ashamed and afraid of the blame
the questions are screaming the answers are hiding
the sickness is growing distracted condition
you can feel the disgust and smell the confusion
Lying insane getting soaked in the rain
draining the sky of the guilt and the shame
the nightmare is coming the clouds are descending
pulled under two thousand metres a second
Clawing at walls that just slip through my fingers
darkness consuming collapsing and breaking
distilled paranoia seeped into the walls
and filled in the cracks with the whispering calls
Shadows are forming take heed of the warnings
creeping around at four in the morning
lie to myself start a brand new beginning
but I'm losing myself in this fear of living
Freedom is only a hallucination
that wait's at the edge of the places you go when you dream
deep in the reason betrayal of feeling
Freedom is only a hallucination
that wait's at the edge of the places you go when you dream ....
Freedom is only a hallucination
that wait's at the edge of the places you go when you dream
deep in the reason betrayal of feeling
freedom is only a hallucination
that wait's at the edge of the places you go when you dream..


11. Parisienne Moonlight

I feel I know you
I don't know how
I don't know why

I see you feel for me
You cried with me
You would die for me

I know I need you
I want you
To be free of all the pain
You have inside

You cannot hide
I know you tried
To be who you couldn't be
You tried to see inside of me

And now i'm leaving you
I don't want to go
Away from you

Please try to understand
Take my hand
Be free of all the pain
You hold inside

You cannot hide
I know you tried
To feel...
To feel...


12. A Natural Disaster

It's been a long, cold winter
without you
I've been crying on the inside
Over you
You've just slipped through my fingers
So life turned away
It's been a long, cold winter
Since that day..
And it's hard to find, hard to find, hard to find the strenght now
but I try
And I don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna to speak now
of what's gone by

Cause no matter what I say, no matter what I do
I can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
no matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No, no, can't change
You've just slipped through my fingers
And now I feel so ashamed
You've just slipped through my fingers
and I've paid


13. Judgement

The inequity of fate
The pains of love and hate
The heart-sick memories
That brought you to your knees

And the times when we were young
When life seemed so long
Now you are left alone
Where did it all go wrong
Day after day
You burned it all away
(and it's too late)

All the hate that feeds your needs
All the sickness you conceive
All the horror you create
Will bring you to your knees


14. Panic

You know you ain't going nowhere you're stuck inside
while the mind is flying you said you'd help
me in the morning twisting on pins into my
eyes and we driving on the ceiling below
you... facin' up the walls with your crocked hands
while you're miles away I don't think at all
end up like this there's spiders on the
wall and they stink of piss dead heads
lying in the corner staring at me making me
feel BAD I put my hands up to my eyes
but the holes in my palms let me find a way
to corner you
I can't feel my chest because it ain't much
sucking through my skin into my BRAIN
oxygen pushing on the window cracks in the glass let it slip away
I start to cry and I keep on laughing
I close my eyes at what's left inside
and then i'll ran away

For all the time this land
for all the time in my hand
slip around
(...
...)
once again

Razor blades floating in the warm bath air bubbles in your veins turning
my hands black whispers coming from the next room
window cleaner keeps on SPYING I put my hands up
to my eyes but the HOLES in my PALMS let me find
a way to corner me twelve (12) hammer for

My breakfast slipping of the edge in catatonic
blood multiple decibel inscriptions trying all they
can in miles an hour ... face
grey and looming downwards
sniffing ALL THE TIME for a ounce
of silence screaming all the way numbers
counting down inside me
solar system thoughts circle
round my HEAD false teeth hanging
from the ceiling feet looking of the goms
of the 2nd son I eat
my hands cos my legs are crying you
BROKE my neck cause i
snapped my spine I wish you would
die away to all the time in this land
and all the time in my hands circle
round in depth found calmness
fall once again


15. Temporary Peace

Deep inside the silence
staring out upon the sea
the waves are washing over
half forgotten memory

Deep within the moment
laughter floats upon the breeze
rising and falling dying down within me
and I swear I never knew how it could be
and all this time all I had inside was what i
couldn't see
I swear I never knew
how it couldn't be
all the waves are
washing over all that hurts inside of me

Beyond this beautiful horizon
lies a dream for you and i
this tranquil scene is
still unbroken by the
rumours in the sky
but there's a storm
closing in voices
crying on the wind
the serenade is growing
colder breaks my soul
that tries to sing
and there's so many many
thoughts
when I try to go to sleep
but with you I start to feel
a sort of temporary peace
there's a drift in and out


16. Flying

Started a search to no avail
a light that shines behind the veil trying to find it
And all around us everywhere
Is all that we could ever share if only we could see it
Feel there's truth that's beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that i'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth

Layers of dust and yesterdays
Shadows fading in the haze of what I couldn't say
And though I said my hands were tied
Times have changed and now I find I'm free for the first time
Feel so close to everything now
Strange how life makes sense in time now

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth


17. One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now you're gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone

I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

Somehow I knew you could never, never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wished, I wished you could have stayed


18. Temporary Peace

Deep inside the silence
staring out upon the sea
the waves are washing over
half forgotten memory

Deep within the moment

couldn't see
I swear I never knew
how it couldn't be

19. Flying

Started a search to no avail
a light that shines behind the veil trying to find it

Feel there's truth that's beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny

Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth


20. Release

Seeing is believing but I don't want to know
walk on through the wasteland I just can't let go
face down I just break down when I see you cry all the
time (sometimesssssssss)

Hold on please hold on to me tempt fate release escape

Someone now is screaming as the flames fly high
think now that we're lost here and we don't know why
face down I just break down when I see you cry all the time

Hold on please hold on to me tempt fate release escape

Behind those grey and lonely eyes
unforgotten by time
reality is dawning
our spirit is awakening
and somewhere in the hurricane
hope is waiting
crying in the distance
and calling out your name


21. A Natural Disaster

It's been a long, cold winter

So life turned away
It's been a long, cold winter

And it's hard to find, hard to find, hard to find the strenght now
but I try
And I don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna to speak now
of what's gone by

Cause no matter what I say, no matter what I do
I can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
no matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happend, can't change what happend
No, no, can't change
You've just slipped through my fingers
And now I feel so ashamed
You've just slipped through my fingers
and I've paid
