01. Never Again

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
I want you to suffer as I have suffered
This is a war of attrition and I won't ceace
And life won't sleep

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer, as I have suffered

You are dead to me
And time won't heal what you've done
You have made your grave
Now make your peace

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer, as I have suffered

Never again will I be betrayed
Never again will you crush me

Unforgiven
Unforgiven
Remember these words, remember my face
Suffer as I have suffered

Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
You will never be forgiven
Nothing can change what you've done
Nothing can change the way I feel
I hope you suffer, as I have suffered

This is what you deserve


02. Starting Over

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
Yeah!

Come on!

Do you remember what we used to have
As if all our dreams were possible
All that existed was you and I
But distance has torn us apart

Forgive me, for all that I've done wrong
Lead me back to where my heart belongs

Can we start again?
Go back in time to where we started
Can we start again?
What we have can't be discarded

Do you remember the promises we've made
But somehow we have lost our way
Take me back to where my heart belongs
Forever made for every day

I know that you doubt my words
I swear there will never be regret

Can we start again?
We thought love was everlasting
Can we start again?
What we had just can't be wasted

Silent thoughts were broken
And words that can't be taken back
But you mean so much more to me
Than anything, anything I've ever known

And this is the hope for tomorrow
That today you will return

Can we start again?
Go back in time to where we started
Can we start again?
What we have can't be discarded

Can we start again? (Do you remember?)
Can we start again?
Can we start again?

Go back in time to where we started


03. The Forgotten

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
You are what's the source
But for goodness they can't be defined
And now you cursed the day
How can you leave your faith behind
Just look at yourself
Do you like what you see
I want no more of you
Watch me walk away

This is the last time
You are the forgotten
You let your dreams die
You are the forgotten

Priced your ego above love
But misplaced your innocence
Just look at yourself
Do you like what you see
I want no more of you
Watch me walk away

This is the last time
You are the forgotten
You let your dreams die
You are the forgotten

What you have given up
Will never return again
Know you're dead inside
I hope it was worth the cost
I hope it was worth the cost
Now you're buried alive

This is the last time

This is the last time
You are the forgotten
You let your dreams die
You are the forgotten


04. Reckoning

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
You are no God to me
You are nothing to me
This is the reckoning

Enjoy this while it lasts
It won't be long before it dies

You've stolen lies, and broken dreams
No man can be your deity

You are no God to me
This is a reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is the reckoning

Was the penance, not enough
Was faith, not enough
No man can be your deity

You are no God to me
This is a reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is the reckoning

And I will be there
To see you fall
You are no God to me
There is the reckoning

The betrayed, will now see the truth
And the broken-hearted, will finally heal
You will be judged
And you will be found wanting
And we'll be there to see you fall

You are no God to me
This is the reckoning
You are nothing to me
This is the reckoning

And I will be there
To see you fall
You are no God to me
There is the reckoning


05. The Returns

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
Alone, once more alone
As the memories weave and fade away
Separation marks me
Frustration consumes me
Inspiration has grown cold
Even as the longing renews

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

What will it take to escape you?
What will it take to escape you?

Is this what you wanted?
To see me humbled
Is this what you asked for?
The final word

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

I would tear my eyes up
to never see your face
But all of this scars
can never be erased
Choke on your words
They have left me bleeding
And may your tears burn

We circle over and over
Still I return, I return

Desperate I return to you
Broken I return to you
We circle over and over
But still I return to you

What will it take to escape you?
What will it take to escape?!


06. A Light In A Darkened World

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
I've seen so much corruption
And it's hard to ignore
Living on greed and possessions
Is this what we're dying for?

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light in a darkened world

Many are willing to only live for themselves
Turning away from morality
Nothing can save you now

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light in a darkened world
You feel dissolved and the water's beginning to rise
Become the light in this darkened world

This is destiny
The choice is now defined
No more deception
Now change will come

It's in your hands
It's in your hands

Now choose this day
Who you will serve
To be the light
In a darkened world

It's in your hands
It's in you hands
Become the light in this darkened world


07. Take Me Away

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
Watching once more, as the world passes me by
Surrounded but still all alone, Am I living a lie?
Empty faces,
Empty eyes
are staring right through me

No regrets
But I still ask why

Take me away
To a peace I've never known

This is the price I've paid and it's taking its toll
Can it be too much to ask for the time it stole?
Empty faces
Empty eyes
are staring right through me

No regrets
But I still ask why

Take me away
To a peace I've never known
Take me away
Where my life can be my own

I only wish that I had stayed
I only wish that I had known

Take me away
To a peace I've never known
Take me away
Then my life can be my own
Where my life can be my own

Take me away
Take me away


08. I Would Do Anything

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
My words die in my throat
And there's nothing I can do
From a child to a monster
And now a child among monsters

Your life is a mockery
Twisted in the web
Is this your legacy
born of ignorance?

I'd give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything

So many mistakes
have led to this disaster
Ten years of reflection
Don't waste the moment
But you'll love to seek the truth
You must choose

I'd give my heart and soul to see you free again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything

The weight that's crushing
can be relieved
Leave the sins of the past
At your feet
Pray for life
Or bleed to death
Pray for life
Or bleed to death

I'll bleed the reddest blood
To see you live again
I would do anything
If you could see the hope I've always seen in you
I would do anything


09. Save Me

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
So much that i've done wrong
is another part
I've done much more than my fair share of darkness
What once was hidden
Now is crystal clear
Transformation is within me!

To break the cycle
I must turn to you
What i lack I gain through your virtue
I gain through you

Even when I fall will you still believe?
Even when I'm lost will you still believe?

Shattered by the hate that i'm deeming
Sweep the dust right off me make me whole again
I am lost without a purpose
Always consumed by self
I freely give this calloused heart
Can you, can you forgive me?

Even when I fall will you still believe?
Even when I'm lost will you still believe?

Now i don't have much
will you save me?
But I'll give it all
will you save me?

I've made so many mistakes
I've broken so many promises
I've searched inside
And I'm empty
Will you save me?
Will you save me?

Even when I fall will you still believe?
Even when I'm lost will you still believe?
Even when I fall will you save me?
Even when I fall will you save me?


10. Lost

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
It's even louder in the silence
And it's always the same
The Darkness always finds me
When I hear your name

It should have been me
And I want you to know
That I'll hold you in my heart
And I won't let go

Just take away this sorrow
It's too much to bear

Drifting, from your memory
I'm lost, lost without your love

Now the time goes by
but the torment remains
If only I could wake
and see your face again
There would be no more regrets
For all the things I never said

Drifting, from your memory
I'm lost, without your love
It's getting harder to face
Another day without you
I'm lost, lost without your love

I wish I was as strong
As you were in the end
But the darkness claims me
And I fall once again

Drifting, from your memory
I'm lost without your love
It's getting harder to face (Harder to face!)
Another day without you
I'm lost, without your love

It's getting harder to face (Harder to face!)
another day without you
Lost.....


11. This Is Goodbye

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
This is my goodbye
But please don't say a word
I don't exist
I cant blame them

Each day is a new failure
Every trial is permissive
Every step I gain
I only fall back faster

This is my goodbye
But please don't try to stop me

There is nothing left
There is nothing left

It's over, please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go
It's my choice so please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go

I have no more tears
This place overwhelms me
Once again I collapse
I see no way to be free

I search for the answers
Is there no solution?
I realize my reflection
My reflection is the demon

It's over, please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go
It's my choice so please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go

It's my blasphemy hoping not to waste each day
It's a nightmare, sleep in freedom
You gave but it was not enough
Your soul...it was not enough, it was never enough

It's over, please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go
It's my choice so please lay me to rest
Forgive me, let me go


12. In A Dead World

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
The empty skies turn black
The bones turn to figments
Desolation is in the air
This is distention

Though we linger off, it dies,
Before our eyes, it dies

As far as the eye can see
Only destruction
Is it hopeless?
What can be done?

Is it too late?
Are we too late to save ourselves?
We're living in, In a dead world

Crying out for a change
What can be done?
Each day we slip further away
On the edge of ruin

It won't be long, before we shut down
Is it hopeless?
What can be done?

Is it too late?
Are we too late to save ourselves?
We're living in, In a dead world

It's so cold
And we're not to blame
Blame ourselves

Now this is the fight
Because there is little left to hold onto to
And to beg forgivness for willing blindness
Now I can say,

It's not too late
Oh not too late, to save ourselves
It's not too late
Oh not too late, to save ourselves


13. My Curse

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
I watched you walk away
Hopeless, with nothing to say
I screen my eyes
Hoping to see you again

This is my curse (the longing)
This is my curse (to)
This is my curse (the yearning)
This is my curse

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?
Will you be here?

Your silence haunts me
But I still hunger for you

This is my curse (the wanting)
This is my curse (to)
This is my curse (the needing)

There is love burning to find you
Will you wait for me?

Still I want
And I still I ache
But still I wait
To see you again

Dying, inside, these walls

Can I see your face in these tears? In these tears
And I see your face...

There is love


14. Rose Of Sharyn

Music by M. D'antonio, A. Dutkiewicz, J. Stroezel, J. Foley, H. Jones
Lyrics by Howard Jones
Numb and broken, here I stand alone
Wondering what were the last words I said to you
Hoping, praying that I'll find a way to turn back time
Can I turn back time?

What would I give to behold
The smile, the face of love?
You never left me
The rising sun will always speak your name

Numb and broken, here I stand alone
Wondering what were the last words I said to you
It won't be long, we'll meet again

What would I give to behold
The smile, the face of love?
You never left me
The rising sun will always speak your name

It won't be long, we'll meet again
Your memory is never passing
It won't be long, we'll meet again
My love for you is everlasting

I mourn for those who never knew you

It won't be long, we'll meet again
Your memory is never passing
It won't be long, we'll meet again
My love for you is everlasting


15. Holy Diver

Music & lyrics by Dio
Hmm-hmmmm
Yeah, yeah

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me?

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away
Holy Diver
Yeah

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you

Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh, we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away - get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel - yeah!

Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

Jump, Jump
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen - yeah!

[Solo - Adam D.]

(Holy Diver...)
Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what's becoming of me? - No! Yeah!

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh, don't you see what I mean?

Gotta get away, get away (get away!)
Gotta get away, get away - yeah, yeah

Holy Diver, sole survivor
Your heart is clean
Yeah, Holy Diver (Holy diver)
Holy Diver (Holy Diver)

You're caught in the middle coming after you, Holy Diver

Oh, Holy Diver (Holy Diver)
Get away, get away, get away - come on!
