01. A Question Of Trust

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
On the air, words of wisdom spread across this land
and nod your heads in faithful trust in me, trust me

So senseless - there's no doubt about it
So senseless - when you hear the latest news
So senseless - you'll accept my opinion
So senseless - as plain facts and truth

TV sets and the radio, we bring real life to your homes
This is the question of trust

Politicians, talking 'bout affairs that don't concern you
Just close your eyes and drift away, trust me

So senseless - identical faces
So senseless - the same stupid talk
So senseless - let's fight for entertainment
So senseless - then have a drink at the bar

Switch on the TV and you will find life's so much brighter with us
This is the question of trust

Question of trust
Question of trust
Question of trust
Question of...

Switch on the TV and you will find life's so much brighter with us
Come home from work, feeling weary and out. We kill your boredom and thoughts
Pay some more bucks for a fifty-inch screen. Our second hand world will seem real
This is a question of trust


02. The Principle Of Doubt

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
The old bum over there holds a sign saying
The only way for you to live never stop trying
A little boy hands a note over to me
The message there on that note is simple and clear

Don't ever leave the path you have been walking on
Don't ever change the ways of getting along

No chance for you to escape from your destination
Choose between good and bad and make your own decision
Just be true to yourself and things will be comin'

Don't ever try to make them smile at you
For in return they'll turn their back on you

A prophecy that's what I say
And you'll find out some day
A chosen one that's what you are
Some day your bound to find your way

You'll fight in a world that don't seen real
You'll have to fight in that world you don't believe in
Don't you try to resist for things will be comin'

Hit by a car in the streets of deserted town
Wake up in your dreams wondering where you're around

I will be lord of this land
I will be ruler of this land
No one can stop me anyway
This will all be mine some day

And you can't run away
Away from your destiny
Now you can't deny
The part you're bound to play

Run but you can't get away
Run but you won't change your fate
Don't try to hideaway
I'll wait for you someday


03. Once I Believed

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
Here's a wired tale of madness
About what happened to me
I led a live full of luxury
Till I broke down on my knees

Cadillacs and furcoats
A mansion by the sea
Then lady luck walked away
Left me in misery

Once I believed
This couldn't happen to me
But now
But now
Everything has changed

A six inch blade cut through my hand
On that fatal day
Then the doctor told me
Slow death is coming my way

My woman went away
People ignoring me
Razorblades in my bread
The folks in town wished I was dead

Once I believed
This couldn't happen to me
But now
But now
Everything has changed

What they say
They don't want me around in this town
Don't want me
Don't want me

We don't want you
Don't want me

Once I believed
This couldn't happen to me
But now
But now
Everything has changed

What they say
They don't want me around in this town
Don't want me
Don't want me

We don't want you
Don't want me


04. Ever Since Time Began

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
Way back in ancient days
I took the shape of a golden idol
They knelt in front of me
Worshipped me; Prayed to me
I saw the greed in their eyes

Longing - fame and fortune
Yearning - wine and women
Craving - gold and happiness
Demanding - Eternal life, eternal life

I saw them burning down
Cities and countries
They killed millions of men
To please me; to calm me down
I saw the greed in their eyes

Longing - fame and fortune
Yearning - wine and women
Craving - gold and happiness
Demanding - Eternal life, eternal life

I've been around for so long
Their faith and devotion make me strong

I saw them burning down
Cities and countries
They killed millions of men
To please me; to calm me down
I saw the greed in their eyes

Longing - fame and fortune
Yearning - wine and women
Craving - gold and happiness
Demanding - Eternal life, eternal life

They've prayed at my altar
With heads bowed real low
And I've been around
Where ever they go
Where ever they go
Until the end
The end of time
There's no escape
How I like your
Sacrifices
Ever since time began
Ever since time began


05. Curse Of Reality

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
Ambitious
I am
Gonna save this world
Drums beatin'
Soldiers marchin'
Don't stand in our way
Over the hills
We march
The final showdown is near
I am chosen
To be
Saviour of this world

Marching on
Through this land
My dreams
They'll all come true
I will never ever fail

We just do what's right
We will never die

The world ain't real
The weak one cries
Soon he'll face the truth
Over the hills
We march
The final showdown is here

Dawn is here
But what I see
I simply can't believe
Soldiers, soldiers, soldiers everywhere
As far as I can see
Billions of enemies
Bound to tear my world apart
Now that I face the facts
I gotta realize
Something must have been wrong from the start
I can see
Them smile at me
I know the end is near
That's the curse of reality

Curse of reality


06. Twilight Zone (Lord Fouls Hort)

Music by M. Constanz
[Instrumental]


07. Shades Of Doom

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
Can't control
My hands and feet
Conditioned to be a human machine
Can't control
My thoughts and needs
Memories erased..........

My brain won't work allright no more
Without this chip inside my head
The things I see I can't define
Responsibility seems strange to me

Fear - I'm a victim of the latest
Shock - Gene technology
Fear - I'm trained to be a robot
Shock - To serve society
Fear - I never ask no questions
Shock - I never cause a doubt
Fear - I don't know what's going on and what it's all about

I gotta know
The reason why
I can't receive no signals anymore
Seems like I'm
left alone
in a dying world..........

I did my job all night and day
Now everything has gone astray
There's emptiness inside my head
I realize I've been long gone dead

Fear - Foreign determination
Shock - And the happiness I've known
Fear - Have faded with the signals
Shock - From my master's room
Fear - All wires disconnected
Shock - I see the shades of doom
Fear - Standing by the ruins fills my heart with gloom

I did my job all night and day
Now everything has gone astray
There's emptiness inside my head
I realize I've been long gone dead

Fear - I'm a victim of the latest
Shock - Gene technology
Fear - I'm trained to be a robot
Shock - To serve society
Fear - I never ask no questions
Shock - I never cause a doubt
Fear - I don't know what's going on and what it's all about


08. The Jester

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
I'm a member of the motley crew
Pleasing the rich and kings
When I make 'em laugh
Nobody even cares
What's inside my mind
Don't seen to get what I'm looking for
And I can't stand it anymore
Can't you see
Can't you see

I sit and wait till the big boss's calling me
How I wish I could hideaway
You'll see me smile
But I'm hurt inside
How I wish I could break away
I can't stand it anymore
Don't wanna play the fool no more
Gotta break away
Gotta break away

When you gaze at me
It's like a look into a mirror
And here is what you're bound to see
Someone like you
Leading a kind
Of life that's killing me
I'm gonna get what I'm yearning for
Break out and play my part no more
Here is what I say
Here is what I say

Don't drag me down
Don't push me around
Don't drag me down
Don't push me around

I'm gonna get what I'm yearning for
Break out and play my part no more
Here is what I say
Here is what I say

Don't drag me down
Don't push me around
Don't drag me down
Don't push me around

I'll be just what I wanna be
Wanna be disperately
I'll be just what I wanna be
Wanna be disperately

[Instrumental]


10. No Friend Of Mine

Music by Björn Eklund
Lyrics by Mekong Delta
Lights turned low
Curtains let down
Ain't no one else in sight
Waitin' for you
Just for you
Four walls get closer everyday

We've been friends for so long
And no one will ever know
Like the phoenix from the ashes
You came to haunt my dreams
And I think I know

You'll never let me go
You'll never let me go
You're a part of me
You belong to me

You know my secrets
All my emotions
Nothing I can hide
We'll stay together
Cause we can't stay apart
Though I know someday we are through

We've been friends for so long
And no one will ever know
Like the phoenix from the ashes
You came to haunt my dreams
And I think I know

You'll never let me go
You'll never let me go
You're a part of me
You belong to me

Now you've gone too far
Now you're grown to strong
The ceiling is caving in
You've been here for much too long
Dark walls all around I see
Getting closer, closer to me

Won't let you go
I got a split up mind

Can't let you go
Ooh, you drive me insane

Won't let you go
Please, please let me go

Can't let you go
Cause you're killing me

Won't let you go
Why do you do that to me

Can't let you go
Why don't you set me free

Won't let you go
I'm paralized in my bed

Can't let you go
Pain's creeping right through my head

Won't let you go
Why don't you leave me be

Can't let you go
You are the death of me

SPLIT PERSONALITY
