01. When The Sky Comes Down

The bastards meeting once again
Disputing territories, breach the lines
they've drawn
Deactivation of the sane
Call out the troops, the mothers kiss their sons

Never coming home

A lovely day to start a war
Sale of a twisted story in a sheep's disguise
Tax out the rich, enslave the poor
All sirens blowing as the rockets fly

Into the sky

When the sky comes down, run for
cover to the underground
When the sky comes down, run for cover,
running on, and on, and on

So long, it's time to say goodbye
Barely a man, now locked and loaded for the kill
Seats at the pub shall be denied
Taken by those who criticize them still

Old enough to die

When the sky conies down, run for
cover to the underground
When the sky comes down, run for cover,
running on, and on, and on

So long...

A lovely day to say goodbye
Dog tags and body bags, the fathers
fight their tears
The bastards' games that we have lost funding
the grief machine for coming years

When the sky comes down, run for
cover to the underground
When the sky comes down, run for cover,
running on, and on, and on

So long, it's time to start a war


02. Paranoid Conspiracy

Oh, I can't believe what everybody says
you're doing to me
Same as it always has been, and has-beens
have got to go

Washed up, burnt out, left to die
Kill your brother with a smile

Paranoia Conspiracy
Demons rising from up inside your misery

Over, and over, and over, I pull the knife
out of my back
Lord, you're giving me a heart attack
Cardiac

He said, she said, it's a lie
Where, oh where's your alibi?

Paranoia Conspiracy
Demons rising from up inside your misery

Bitter words and eyes that bleed of
green now turning red
I guess it's better not to fool around
and raise the dead

Charging forward all alone
I won't be your stepping stone

Paranoia Conspiracy
Demons rising from up inside your misery


03. The Broken Has Spoken

Once upon a nation, just a young punk on the rise
Built upon the hopes and dreams
revolution had inspired

(The Broken) remember how it started
(Have Spoken) we'll win the fight or we will die

Visions are just dreams, yeah,
turned to nightmares on a dime
Hey, there's a wolf in the skin of a sheep again
He wants to come inside

Your rules, the fools, tethered to the very end
Their lies will rise and take us to the dark descent
For...
(The Broken) remember how it started
(Have Spoken) we'll win the fight or we will die

Die on the streets, die in the air
Flying on the wings of an eagle
Die on the seas
I still believe that she belongs to us all
Headlines, dark crimes in a starched
white collar world
Subside and divide,
and kick the masses to the curb

On the streets, and in the air,
and on the seas we'll die for her

Your rules, the fools, tethered to the very end
Their lies will rise and take us to the dark descent
For...
(The Broken) remember how it started
(Have Spoken) we'll win the fight or we will die


04. Sink Or Swim

Don't bother finding sleep
It's for the rich, and just a shortcut to death
When it's sink or swim, you'd better tread water
before you know which way to head to shore

Time's wasting
Overtaken
Don't let me drown
I've been through enough to know by now that
life is sink or swim

Don't wanna count no sheep
They bring a smell, and make a whole lot of noise
Between the ups and downs and ins and outs,
somewhere along I fell into a well

Time's wasting
Overtaken
Don't let me drown
I've been through enough to know by now that
life is sink or swim

You'd better find some sleep if you wanna be rich,
before you catch up to death
And now it's sink or swim, so just tread water
You'd better hope and pray you find the shore

Time's wasting
Overtaken
Don't let me drown
I've been through enough to know by now that
life is sink or swim


05. One Life

I can hear the whisper of a distant voice telling
me that I've got no choice
Yeah, I can hear it

Drifting through life searching for peace of mind
Only got one life to live, so give it all you've
got to give until the end

I can feel it in my bones and getting higher,
pulsing through my veins, set my soul on fire
Yeah, I can feel it

Seeking through life
Searching for peace of mind

Only got one life to live,
so give it all you've got to give
Embrace the truth, don't live a lie
No regrets on the day you die
And say goodbye

I can see that the end is getting closer
There's no sorrow when your life is over
Yeah, I can see it

Pass on through life-
oh, the way I've lived my life
Finding your peace of mind

Only got one life to live,
so give it all you've got to give
Embrace the truth, don't live a lie
No regrets on the day you die
And say goodbye


06. Have I Told You

Have I told you I'd be done without you
and your love so sweet?

When the moonlight pours out from your
eyes in every drop of tears

I offer these sincere apologies for the
life I've brought to this day

Have I shown you I would die before
I give up on this love?
No words can heal all of the pain you feel
It's the cross I carry today

If I told you we can sort this out, oh,
would you do the same?

Drifting strangers, can we be apart?
I'd never want to be
When the world just disappears
because it's only you and me

I offer these sincere apologies
For the life I've brought you
No words can heal all of the pain you feel
It's the cross I carry today

Have I told you I'd be done without you
and your love so sweet?


07. Hunters Of Doom

Now fallen angels rise in excommunication
unsheath the swords and wield the
shields above our battle cries
Angel soldiers
Stand tall and fight
The wicked cannot hide from the hunters of doom

Specters embrace the dark,
beckoning to draw us near
Dig in your heels and pray for
courage as you grip the steel
Pray for courage
Prepare to die
It's down to fight or flight for the hunters of doom

All hope inside that was a
flame now seems to flicker
The din of leather wings creeping
down until all faith has gone

The end of time is here
Welcome to Armageddon
In life or death I know that
freedom waits in victory

On death we ride
All demons stand aside for the hunters
Prepare to die
The wicked cannot hide from the hunters of doom


08. Glass Of Lies

I'm in Hell, though I'm free
How I wish you could've walked out on me
It's been so long since I had you go
Even though you were the first love I had known

Tonight I try to mend my heart
Tonight you're tearing me apart

All I know is how I feel
I can't quit you 'cause I love you still
When you look into my eyes,
I gaze into the glass of lies

I was a child when I met you
I fell for you, baby, oh so soon
You couldn't care less about me, anyhow
But you would stay if I kissed you right now

Tonight I'm giving you my heart
Tonight I tear myself apart

All I know is how I feel
I can't quit you 'cause I love you still
When you look into my eyes,
I gaze into the glass of lies

Break the spell and set me free
I can't live unless you walk out on me
Now I pull you closer to my lips
And drink you in, baby, sip by sip

Tonight I'm begging for my heart
Tonight I need a brand new start

All I know is how I feel
I can't quit you 'cause I love you still
When you look into my eyes,
I gaze into the glass of lies


09. Butterflies

She breaks the vows and turns to cast a stone
I'm lashing out in desperation's way
A lovely child is peering from the hall
He holds his tongue and sadly looks away

Visions in my mind again of
innocence I can't defend
Wings are shown, the chrysalis has grown
The butterflies have flown

The stone - it drags me to the deep
She hides the truth inside another lie
Time marching on, the boy is petrified of tender
beauty lurking just outside

Visions that I can't forget
Decisions that I now regret
He sees the butterflies and gently moans
He feels so all alone...

The trial that comes, eleventh hour nears
The future clouded in a veil of doubt
My only hope for you, my loving child,
is that you see the beauty in the sky

Disappointment with myself,
for putting problems on the shelf
Hopefully you'll feel my love
and comfort in what flies above
Visions in my mind again of
innocence I can't defend
Wings are shown, the chrysalis has grown
The butterflies have flown


10. Sucker

I'm hearing what you're saying
Problem is I just don't care
I can see just what you're playing
I'm telling you, you should not dare

No, I'm not your sucker
Find someone else to be your fool

Now did you become the victim?
Was it when I could take no more?
You can sail in search of rainbows,
but you'll never touch the shore

No, I'm not your sucker
Find someone else to be your fool

No, I ain't no fool

Try and sell it to your minions,
though they're few and far between
I'll be telling it to the millions
Write to us from mediocrity

No, I'm not your sucker
Find someone else to be your fool

I ain't nobody's fool


11. The Greying Chill Of Autumn

So far from home, over and done
I don't feel much anymore
Days turned to years and the drying of tears
God help me out of this hole

Trapped in the darkness when it's light
Bound to the ground, I feed the soil as
my spirit is denied

Search day and night, hoping for light
Shrouded in doubt and despair
Milk carton profiles of when we all smiled
Time set them free to repair

Trapped in the darkness when it's light
Bound to the ground, I feed the soil as
my spirit is denied

I cannot move, cannot scream
Can no one intervene?
Heaven saw my resume, but my poor
soul was turned away
Searchers had been oh so close, but now
my rotting corpse just slips away
Beyond all hope shall I remain

It is the greying chill of autumn that now
holds my bones throughout the summer
Please let my family know how I love them so

Trapped in the darkness when it's light
Bound to the ground, I feed the
soil under autumn skies
Trapped in the darkness when it's light
Bound to the ground, I feed the soil as
my spirit is denied


13. Your Reflection

High above the mountains, and far below the
waves lie the only places free of all malaise
that mankind has caused
Tired of all the nonsense, and tired of all the bull
Bet against me, underestimate this
fool - roll your dice

The guns are drawn for the final stand
When you force the hand of the gambling man
The rivers rise as the moon desires
Only your reflection shows no scars

The sun brings the golden hands,
but tonight it's the end of the line
Turn away from the helping hand
Salvation is wasting your time
Blood spills at the sacrifice
Your children give you every last drop
So in denial when you're sicker,
and it just won't stop

The guns are drawn for the final stand
When you force the hand of the gambling man
The rivers rise as the moon desires
Only your reflection shows no scars
