01. Isolate

i'm sent for elimination
to where i cannot know, but i'm lost without a chance in hell
and i'm lost with doubts i can avoid this come feel the fire burn i'll slowly drift away
a victim of the future my mind and soul decayed

isolate

i'm sent for eradication
by whom i cannot know, but i'm lost without a chance in hell
i'm the last one out i can't avoid this

exposed to fire but i'll burn another way
a victim of the future i embrace the tourniquet

isolate

lead us all to pastures green
to search and learn
from ones i cannot be

lead us all to harmony
to search and learn
the one i cannot be


02. Erased

i don't owe anything
i don't owe anyone
shoot pride for all its worth
i don't belong

in a situation now
that i could not repair
i assert myself to sleep
show others that i've cared
how cold is this poor life
lay ashes at my grave

if it takes me away from you
a subtle gesture

i don't know anyone (cherish my religion)
i don't know anyone (faith is only fiction)
i don't know anyone (cherish my religion)
i don't know anyone (faith is only fiction)

this is erased i promise not a trace
this is erased i promise no delay not a trace


03. Two Worlds

the sense required is all too vague
within my faculties, building me
this awesome presence longs to see
the times i've fallen
the times i've failed

and i've never seen my hands
and i couldn't walk away
two worlds are the same tomorrow
still i must not complain

the sense acquired is all too grave
with less than one percent left in me
this awesome prison locked and sealed
for times i've borrowed, for times i've failed

and i've never seen my hands
and i couldn't walk away
two worlds are the same tomorrow
still i must not complain

and i've never seen my hands
and i couldn't walk away
two worlds are the same tomorrow
still i must not complain

and i've never heard a whisper
and i'd never speak of pain
two worlds are the same tomorrow
to all i seem inane


04. Pray Nightfall

in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head...

i hold on tight for this mortal ride
rest my head 'til the mornings coming down on me
i realise my own sacrifice
better rest my head before somebody's going out...

in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head...

pray nightfall release me
then i could wander, wander to deep sleep

awake despite, another mortal night
rest my head, for the sun is shining down on me
i realise try to synchronize
rest my head or somebody's going down

in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head...

pray nightfall release me
then i could wander, wander to deep sleep

trying to make things work
trying to make things right
trying to make things work
without serendipity in my life...


05. Primal

it's deep in the mind
so slick by design
i'll end up the same way maybe

don't hold on to pride
you'll lose if you try
you'll end up the same way someday

lord i'm on my way, don't let me down
lord i'm on my way, don't let me down

can't feel it inside
how long can it hide
you'll end up the same way maybe

redemption denied
as life passes by
i'll end up the same way someday

lord i'm on my way, don't let me down
lord i'm on my way, don't let me down

gets deeper inside
so strong the divide
i'll end up the same way maybe
don't loose an insight
abuse till you die
we'll all end the same way someday

lord i'm on my way, don't let me down
lord i'm on my way, don't let me down


06. Perfect Mask

i live behind the perfect mask
erase the rule forever

i live behind the perfect mask
unleash the truth forever

i live behind the perfect mask
too late gonna live at last

i live behind the perfect mask
too late gonna live at last

i live behind the perfect mask
erase the truth forever

i live behind the perfect mask
only the true endevour

help me....i dare say theres no other way
help me....i dare say theres no other way to go

wanton fallacy again
merciless until the end
recognise my heart is there
so reveal me and disgrace me


07. Mistify

faced with shame,
i accept a will that that's long departed
phased with games,
i resent a world i once regarded
but now it seems the changes must be made...

celebrate! terrify me
don't mystify your love

celebrate! terrify me
don't mystify your love

laced with shame,
i reject a thrill that's so misguided
faith in flames,
i'm exempt to blame that's so demanded

but now it seems that changes have been made.....

celebrate! terrify me
don't mystify your love

celebrate! terrify me
don't mystify your love

a simple lie brings you down, in an ordinary way
a simple lie brings you down, in an ordinary way
a simple lie....


08. Celebration

take my hand,
hurray for the winters come...
cease my plans
excuse me from the scenes of old

i can meet you there? , i just don't care
on this new years day
with no celebration from me

understand
there's comfort with the wealth of gold
increase demands
release me from the scenes of old

i can't make it clear you just won't hear
on this new years day
there's no celebration from me

i could see you there? , we just don't care
on this new years day
without hesitation
there's no celebration from me


09. Self Obsessed

i'm self-obsessed
wrong words i said
it's clear that some things aren't worth really trying

so let it go, let it be
then we'll talk and i can
dream you're not here
persevere, i could live without this

the one you'd like to go
is taken much too slow

you're not impressed
wrong words i said
a mere subject of your self-indulgence

so let it go, let it be
shall we to talk about it
my misery is when you breathe
there's no doubt about it


10. Symbol Of Life

all alone beside myself
all alone beside myself
and i've troubles on my mind

and i've reached the depths of life
and i hear that deaths alright
still i'll wait for you to try

when the dreams have been and gone
and the torment has begun
my emotions run

can't get by with what i've got
always dwell on what i've lost
just a loaded gun...

a symbol of my life, a symbol of my life

on the floor i crawl and writhe
as the day turns into night
i remove myself from sight

and i reached the depths alright
and i hear deaths part of life
still i wish that you would try

when a dream has been and gone
and the torment has begun
the rejections done

i get by with what i've got
always aware of what i've lost
just a loaded gun...

a symbol of my life, a symbol of my life

nothing more, nothing more to say to me


11. Channel For The Pain

i live all alone, i wonder why?
i live all alone, i wonder why?

see me shaking never making
all my life and there is no other way
'til i'm old enough and hit the ground,

never choose, because i'm here just to lose,
besides a win would just release,
and just maybe solve my minor problems

don't wanna seek, i wont make a demand,
cause i'm taking all the things
that prevent me from knowing the truth
don't wanna seek, i wont make a demand,
cause although my mind is breaking
my existence makes a channel for the pain

i live all alone, i wonder why?
i live all alone, i wonder why?

see me taking never giving all my life
and there is no other way
till im old enough and hit the ground
i only lose cause i never did choose and all the loneliness
that's there is just the core of all my problems

don't wanna seek, i wont make a demand,
cause im taking all the things
that prevent me from knowing the truth
don't wanna seek, i wont make a demand,
cause although my mind is breaking
my


12. Xavier

[music and lyrics by Dead Can Dance]

Fair Roseanna your vagrancy's a familiar tale
Fraught with danger the lives you led were judged profane

Hatred enfolds us
Inculcates the minds with it's heresy
Laymen enfold us
Clemency arrives to set you free

Faith
Although Xavier has prayed
That life-giving waters may rain
Down on the souls of man
To cure them of their ways

These were the sins of Xavier's past
Hung like jewels in the forest of veils
Deep in the heart where the mysteries emerge
Eve bears the stigma of original sin

Freedom so hard when we are all bound by laws
Etched in the seam of nature's own hand
Unseen by all those who fail in their pursuit of faith

Although Xavier has prayed
That life-giving waters may rain
Down on the souls of man
To cure them of their ways

And as the night turns into day
Will the sun illuminate your way
Or will the nightmares come home to stay
Xavier's love lies in chains

These were the sins of Xavier's past
Hung like jewels in the forest of veils


13. Smalltown Boy

[music and lyrics by Somerville/Steinbachek/Bronski]

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
But the answers you seek
Will never be found at home
The love that you need
Will never be found at home

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one
That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down

And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry
But you never cried to them
Just to your soul
No you never cried to them
Just to your soul

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Cry, boy, cry...

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
