01. Stiletto In The Sand (Jihad)

[Instrumental]


02. War For Sale (January)

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Time came to leave
You know there's something
About the principle
Of what goes on behind the scenes
The military machine
The way they led me on...
Stiletto in the sand
Thrusted down in anger
Bloody to the handle
Diamond red
Machines of mass destruction
Well I helped to design them
The guilt of children's blood stains on my hands

The word from the board room
Our boys in Tehran have scored

How long till we realize the truth?
The bottom line of defense and world security
The bankers and the ministry of arms
Just cut the deal and the war is on
The village burned the desert set ablaze
Who are these men with their finger's in everybody's pie?
Big rockets and their profiles all the rage
Their business plan calls for ware for sale

Please understand
Until I saw all this
I never thought about the third world trampled under wheels
Out in the streets and in the fields
I simply questioned it all...
Stiletto in the sand
Fingers on the triggers
Tempers boiling over
Bleed them red

Machines of mass destruction
Oh why did I design them?
The guilt of children's blood stains on my hands

Napalm and land mines
Nobody left alive

How long 'til we realize the truth?
The bottom line of defense and world security
the banker's and the ministry of arms
Just cut the deal and the war is on
The market screams a recommended buy
The contract's in don't just sit there get your broker on the line
Big money left their morals far behind
Guess what we've got - we got war for sale

How long 'til we realize the truth?
The bottom line of defense and world security
the banker's and the ministry of arms
Just cut the deal and the war is on
The village burned the desert set ablaze
Who are these men with their finger's in everybody's pie?
Then freedom's ring departed from today
There's just no doubt - we got war for sale!


03. Out Of Nowhere (February)

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M. Baker
Yesterday is over
Stripped of my clearance - fired
I don't know what to do
Haunted by empty faces
Victims of warring madness
If they only knew

Their world's a bloody mess
Some corporate bottom line
I tried to ask and they treat me like a threat
And they slammed the door behind

Yesterday I walked away into a cold cold city
So afraid our world today is just a house of lies
Just believe in what you feel
They used to say they used to say
Then out of nowhere
I melt into my busy day

Reaching out in my world
Becomes a matter of
Connections to the net
I've locked myself in real good
Investigative research
Looking for what is real

Welcome to the brave new world
No light inside my soul
The more I learn the deeper in I'm drawn
The deeper in I fall

Yesterday I walked away into a cold cold city
Ain't it strange how wars get raged to sounds of smashing dreams
Just believe in what you feel
They used to say they used to say
Then out of nowhere
One world
No Chance
Is this the new human race?
A faceless contact with life
Imaginary places stealing all of my time
Is this a test of my faith?
What's to become of my life
I used to see it so clear
But now I've lived to see it pass away
Before my eyes


04. Mystery

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Days at a time pass
In the dead of the night is when you come to me
You've got so much to say
Just spread your wings and ride
On the electric universe
Behind your computer
What do you picture when you read my
Words and thoughts and dreams?
Do they all come alive and breathe?
It's no wonder
This is a brand new world we're on
I'd really like to meet you somewhere along

The way you come to me is such a mistery
I just reach out and connect
A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here
It's electric on a silver thread
I never see your face you're such a mystery
Where you are I can only guess
Addictive screens
I just cannot turn away

Where are you anyway?
Those things you say seem so damn far from real
But I can tell you this
I have seen things for myself that just don't seem right
I have always been an honest man
I believed that the system
Worked for
You and for
Me but - no
You say it's just a show
And we've all been way too busy
Or too spoiled to even care who's got the wheel

I used to look behind the lies
Use to look for sunny skies
I learned so much since I've been
Hacking their computer systems
The truth had knocked me to the floor
That a boy now out the door
A little power and I'm
On my way to logging on the world

The way you come to me is such a mistery
I just reach out and connect
A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here
It's electric on a endless thread
I never see your face you're such a mystery
And your touch I can only guess
I lay here dreaming
We're so gone away

The way you come to me is such a mystery
I just reach out and connect
A thousand miles from me and yet it's all right here
Just electric on a silver web
Ane every night you're here you are my mystery
And where you are I can only guess
Morning's rising
And it's dawn again


05. Hope For Us? (July)

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M.Baker
Too late for us now?
I sat alone and I spoke out loud
On this darkened afternoon
The windows to my room
A solemn shutter on the world
Where I used to laugh and dream
For the first time in so long I make
My way down to the street and watch
The people as they pass

Outside I breathe the air
And all around fall shadows of despair

I wonder is there hope for us
A place where we can all be free
I wonder is there life inside a soul that dies?
I wonder is there hope for us
To lift me up I don't know when
I'll see the sun again
I'd like to feel alive
Just one more time

Headlines on the floor
Today's bitterness is the calling card
The commercial masquerade
The goods all on parade
The needs of life are charming toys
We've gone deaf from all the noise
WHen did the rich and powerful elite
Slowly and unnoticed
Come and steal our innocense?

Entranced - we danced their dance
The stage is set the crowd is on their knees

I wonder is there hope for us
A place where we can all be free
I wonder is there life inside a soul that dies
I wonder is there hope for us
We're stranded with no place to go
I'm feeling so alone
I'll try to make my way
Through one more day


06. Victims

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Downtown I walk
Through New York City so hot
The summer swelter melting
Got things on my mind right now
In the alleys that I take
They just don't give up an inch
I turned and saw it all
I watched him fall
I tried to catch him
But they knocked me out cold too
"Babylon" he cried
The cost in flesh and blood is rising high

Things are falling apart it all seems
Bleeding in the gutter
The waste of random acts of violence
Where's the Savior to resuce our dreams?
Desperation's crawling
We're victims of a world that's gone so wrong?

Hours later when I woke
I was lying in some darkened basement rescue mission
They're tending to my needs and wounds
They were such a sorry lot
The very bottom of the social ladder
I just caught myself before I cried
They've nothing at all
But they're the only ones there to help

Eden's sin's alive
Stalking me
Stalking everyone

Things are falling apart it all seems
Tears that speak in volumes
The eyes of all these hopeless people
Where's the Savior to rescue our dreams?
Desperation's crawling
On victims of a power hungry world!


07. Broken

Music by G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M. Baker
I am only just a broken spirit
All the things unseen right before my eyes
How could I have ever been so blind
To the truth behindbitter lies?
I feel so lost and so alone in this room tonight
Is nothing ever going to change?
I've lost my will
I need somebody
To help me write out the last page

Where I ride into the sunset
I race towards the dawn
I might have been a hero
A king and not just a pawn
But that's the way that the story goes you know
"It's not that way for me"
And I wake up cold and lonely
And stare into the screen...


08. I Believe (September)

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles, C, Cadden-James, G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M. Baker
Long ago a living story
Walked the whole world phrophesying
Told of days when the hand of God
Pulls away from the world
All hell starts breaking out
I see it clear
It pounds the cold into your life
It turns to gray what's black and white
I've torn their mask off
I can see them
What a bloody mess
That's our world!

My father's final moments
And I was there to catch his last breath
He spoke so eloquently
Said
"Listen boy the way it goes is soley
Up to you and you alone
To live your life in strength that's been passed on
Blood to blood."

So we come to a crossroad
I'm not sinking - do you see me?
I am standing where the strong of heart
Meet the wicked bad
Murals painted in the dungeons
Were the dreams that caused transforming
I am coming back to life again
Life again

A power's lifting me I journey to the light
Many secrets passed before my eyes

It's just a matter of time 'til new horizons will unfold
Tearing down the walls between us
Resurrect this poisoned world
"Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky
There are things worth more than money
You got to learn to hold them high
I believe - I believe

I've seen what comes of greed and money
I feel a growing call for action
We need changes now like never before
Never in this world
The more I think about it
I know a woman whoh just might set the course for me
Cause I believe
I believe in what she says

Sometimes this world is simply
Trembling - crumbling
Coming time to banish it for evermore
Evermore
The time for final judgement's close at hand
Four horsemen mount on high
Wake up in the morning to the sound of children dying
The latest technology mesmerize them
Love strong enough that it can pull you from the fire now
What about you?
What about you?
I am alive!

It's just a matter of time 'til new horizons will unfold
Tearing down the walls between us
Resurrect this poisoned world
"Fore the hopes and dreams of all the land are blown into the sky
There are things worth more than money
You got to learn to hold them high
I believe - I believe


09. Roads Of Thunder

Music by C. Ingles, G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M. Baker
[A) EMPOWERED]
Are your deeds so really bad?
Your secret life untold
Please tell me
Just try me
But you say goodnight and shut me down until tomorrow
When you come to life again
And reveal just maybe
What's going on inside of you
The real you

Strange feeling
Right now I want to look you in the eyes
And tell you how I feel

I've lived the life of a lonely man
And I've traveled roads of thunder
Calling out to Heaven
Send your rain on down
Time has come to make my move
I want to join with you
I'm not powerless tonight

I'm tired of silent conversations
With a mystery
It's so strange
We both know
We've grown so close
It's like you're mine and I am yours
And that's where things go wrong
You're not meant to be invisible
Please speak to me with spoken words
And prove you're real

I never knew that I could feel with such conviction
And I just don't understand what separates our world

I've lived the life of a lonely man
And I've traveled roads of thunder
Calling out to Heaven
Send your rain on down
Time has come to make my move
I want to join with you
I'm not powerless tonight
What if I cross the line
And I show you I mean business
Prove that we're alike
And send some rain on down?
Seems to me in these busy days
It's not just what you say
You gotta turn it back on them and fight!

I feel my life turning pages at the mercy of the wind

There it is now
The course for me to take
Embed a virus in the system
Send their money flying to the ground
Financially restrained
The network down in flames
It's gonna take all that I know
But in the end they'll be mourning
Their system as it bleeds and dies

[B) VIRUS]

[C) POWERLESS]
I've lived the life of a lonely man
Now there's no more time for waiting
What I've gone and done
I sent the rain on down
What happens next is now up to you
You gotta make a move
Don't leave me powerless tonight
I really mean it we've got to talk
This is something you believe in
Calling out to Heaven
Send your line on down
Now you know that I'm on my own
I'm waiting by the phone
You're not powerless tonight


10. Spoken Words

Music by G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James, M. Baker
There I was all alone all by myself
And you were just a ghost behind a screen
The few short months we spent
Long distance late nights just the two of us
I've grown to picture you
I've pictured you with me

There are things I've just not told you
Works of treason wrought by these very hands
I've been scared for me
Now I'm scared for you
And so it's best I say farewell

No no no

Where you're going I will be there
And every time you reach out I'm there
Where you're going I will be there
You've got to believe me
I'll never go away

You listen close I've got to run and hide myself away
I think I may have brought them to their knees
There were your thoughts
Oh how they drew me in
I need to be with you
I've nowhere else to turn

All through my life I've had such an emptiness
That no one could ever fill
Some how your dreams they've touched my life
You see I think I'd like to try

Where you're going I will be there
And every time you reach out I'm there
Where you're going I will be there
You've got to believe me
I'll never go away

Our only hope I would say
Is to rendezvous somewhere far away
Just decipher the location that I send
Now I think that they are on to you
Our time has come

Where you're going I will be there
And every time you reach out I'm there
Where you're going I will be there
You've got to believe me
I'll never go away


11. New World Order

Music by C. Cadden-James, G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Good day my fellow citizen
I don't mean to intrude
But allow me to get right down to the point
We've monitored transmissions
We calculate your moves
Did you really think you're hidden from our sight?
Your name's been added to a list that's been compiled
Our agency considers you a risk

Secret power I can't believe
Growing stronger I feel them
Strengthening their grip

So there you are you crossed the line
You pathetic little man
Well rest assured the worst you feared is true
In the seduction of society we play upon desire
Spoiled and drunk that's you

Can this be happening?
This world is just a grand facade
You're just a simple man at heart
A victim playing out a part
Oh I just want my freedom
Where are the ones who back you now?
I feel abandoned fee like
Screaming at the walls
Too bad the walls have ears
This never ever should have been
But that's the way it is

This is the new world order
This is the corporate sponsored
Changing of the guard
The march is on
I can feel it - I can feel it's tyranny
It's all about the power
This rising new world order
Strong arm of the law
The march is on
I can see it - I can see it's tyranny

The point you fail to see is
The simple beauty of our subtle mind control
Brainwashing media is all we need to set the boundaries

Advanced communication
You're at our fingertips now
We own the TV stations
Entertainment, Publications
Wall street is our breeding ground
The sphere of our control extends through
Governments and leaders who will buy our arms
Yes buy our arms and run our evil wars
Run our evil wars run this evil world into the ground

This is the new world order
This your corporate sponsored life

I see through your disguises
Your rising new world order lies

You've no idea the power my new world order is alive

You don't really think you have a prayer
I don't know where to go to avoid your
Staring eyes and universal grasp upon all life
This world is mine!

This is the new world order
This your corporate sponsored life

It's all about the power
This rising new world order rise


12. Chased

[Instrumental]


13. Ghost Of A Chance (November)

Music by B. Allman, C. Ingles, G. Wehrkamp
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Walking down some highway midnight North Dakota
Somewhere 'round late fall I knew that the time
Has come for me I'm willing a million stars above me
I tried to catch their fall I tried to catch their fall

Inside I felt so empty
A stranger to this world so lost
And as the winter draws I'm turning north

I'm leaving things behind I just don't need
The only things in life of worth are free
To anyone's who's heard the call
And turned and walked away

I've traveled too long on my own
I've got a dream of home
Safe at last...

Where are all the answers
And visionary wisdom
From the stately and esteemed?
Just as I thought...
Disconsolate I ponder
The evil human nature
And what it really means
For the ones who paved the way

No bag of gold can save their souls
It's like they never feared
But now their end is near
The flames start leaping

Baby don't it drop you to your knees?
The only thing in life of worth is free
To anyone's who's heard the call
And turned and run away

Despite this nasty world I roam
Imagine going home
Ghost of a chance


14. Christmas Day

Music by C. Ingles
Lyrics by C.Cadden-James
Outside the twilight rides high
And whispers of love sound deep in the night
Hope and promise of peace in our land
Is this Christmastime?

Dark winter watches our fire
And brings us promise of a new day
Distant eyes have gone a long way

Too far to see the snow that falls
The winds of change have come and gone
The cold has come I've been left out
I need your warmth you're all I have

If you're chasing a dream to nowhere
It's enchantment that leads the way
Just believe in yourself and go there
The gift of hope on Christmas day
If every eye holds a blank stare
After winter's gone away
Just believe in yourself and go there
You and I on Christmas day

There's a time when your doubts won't matter
There's a time all your fears can wait
All the times in the year for laughter
Oh Christmas day
