01. Inner Strength (Intro)

Instrumental.


02. Throwing Your Life Away

I saw the worst of you
You saw the worst of me
Gotta learn to let it go
And leave it be

You're no good for me
I'm no good for you
Thought it'd last forever
How sad and naive

Can you try to see things my way...
Can you listen to what I say?
And you keep on calling back for more
Throwing your life away

Throw your life away
Do what you got to do
I must confess - I couldn't care less
About your sorry... mess

... Life can be so unforgiving...
... Life can be so cold...


03. Salt In Your Wounds

Don't turn your back on me
I'm not going anywhere
I'm telling you as a friend
There's more to life

Down on your luck
Walking that very fine line
The pressures too much
You're losing your touch

Been a long time coming
Time to break the mould
Been a long time coming
No more salt in your wounds

What's done is done
What you did was wrong
Now pick up the pieces and move on

Don't turn your back on me
I'm not going anywhere
I'm telling you as a friend
There's more to life


04. One Man Army

There is darkness all around me
Or is it all within me?
Plastic faces, they are melting
They couldn't stand my heat

One man army... (Out of control...)

Phase two could be fatal
No time for fear, next level's here
Chain of command - it is broken
Inside my head the voice is clear

Warning light shines red
Reports show 1 million dead
The pressure's on to deliver
Once again I am your saviour

There is darkness all around me
Or is it all within me?
Plastic faces, they are melting
They couldn't stand my heat

...I am the chosen one...
...The one man army...
...Out of control!


05. Through The Halls

Floating in a dreamlike state
My body is sleeping my mind is awake
Losing... control...
Letting go... letting it flow...

Been floating down the river
Through halls of jasmine trees
Otherworldly beauty
As far as my eyes can see
The whole world is open
Stretching out its arms
Beneath me the ocean
It's calling my name

Leaving all my burdens behind
The past and the future entwined
Losing... control...
Letting go... letting it flow...


06. Treading Water

How did you get this far?
Lying, cheating, stealing your way
You are burning out - Like a falling star
Always looking out for number one

When you're all alone
At the end of your days
When you're all alone
Will you regret your ways?

Never to find your inner peace
You're treading water again
Need to find some kind of release
But you're dancing on storm clouds


07. Dying Every Day

Working my fingers to the bone
Too old to run too young to die

Light a fire
And warm my soul
So far from home

I don't know where I'm going anymore
This ain't living... just dying everyday

At the end of the day, I'm all alone
Not falling anymore, but my life ain't my own


08. Born To Die

Never had it easy
Was never on a roll
Never felt love, sweet love
Always felt the pain
Never left compassion
For my fellow man
Some say I was born to die
Well, I guess they're right

I was born to die
I guess this was my life
Never meant to cry
But this pain is driving me insane

Never lived the good life
Always warring with myself
Never felt joy, sweet joy
Always felt the pain
Grew up on the edge of a sharp steel knife
Some say I was born to die
Well, I guess they're right

...Guess this was my life...
...Never meant to cry...
...I was born to die...


10. In My Blood

I have sailed upon the devil's sea
Tossed and torn, battered and worn
Lived through the pain
Survived my final battle
I'm coming home

It's in my blood - In my soul
It can't be bought - can't be sold
Won't back down - will cut you down
In my blood - In my soul

The moon and stars,
They guide me through the night
Can't change my situation
Nor my destination
I will return and take back what's mine
You will learn that this is my life


11. Elusive

You will never see the real me
I have no interest in you
Wipe off - that trown
You cannot hold me down

I know I can shine
But not for you
I will have my day
My time will come

Stick around
Spend some time
Your mental chains
Stick around
You will see
Can't keep me in line


12. Sleeping With One Eye Open

Been going nowhere
For so long you don't care
Can't hold a thought in your head
Kinda wasted, kinda dead

Days go by...
Watch the pendulum swing
Your fear of life
Seems so strange

Sleeping with one eye open
Just a cold, empty stare
You revel in your despair
Kinda wasted, kinda dead


13. No One Heard

You're waiting for salvation
- Guess it never came to pass
Who helps you when you're searching
- You know that nothing lasts
Still you plead for absolution
- And you're buying all the lies
- He was never there, never there

All your praying - it's all lies
All your kneeling - I spit in your eyes
The fate of betrayers - You got what you deserved
All your praying - No one heard

Ignoring what's around you
- Never heeding nature's call
Building temples and double standards
- Watching wisdoms fall
Still you think you've been chosen
- Hypocrisy standing tall
You think your God is waiting
- One eye laughs in his hall
