01. Future Tense

What do you see on the news when you watch T.V.
War in the name of God, or a playground killing spree
Politicians promise you the world, and a preacher cries
All he ever wanted was your money, and a bitch on the side
What went wrong? Did society twist him?

What do you see in the center of the public eye
Rock stars on smack, and a serial killer fries
Radicals blame suicide and murder on our form of art
Brainwash the youth, you know they claim we all play a part
What a shame that they can't think for themselves

Past tense to future tense let history unfold
So ends a decade now what will the nineties hold
You know we're verging on the edge of an age
Then another century will turn the page

What do you think they will say when they look back on this
Were the eighties just a time of spoiled innocence
We leave our legacy like dust in the sands of time
Let's hope the seeds we plant can carry the weight of our crimes

Past tense to future tense let history unfold
And when we're old and gray these stories will be told
You know we're verging on the edge of an age
Then another century will turn the page

We sail an ocean, a sea of doubt
Skeptics make no sense, can't work things out
I'll choose optimism, scream its name
Look to the future, a burning flame

Past tense to future tense let history unfold
So ends a decade now what will the nineties hold
You know we're verging on the edge of an age
Then another century will turn the page
Turn the page.....


02. Taste Revenge

You take the first blow, I taste revenge
Let anger come my will is done, malicious in my intent
The hate is rising, the swell of fear takes over
And, oh the taste is sweet my friend
So bittersweet

No more anger, I've had my revenge
Beg for mercy, I'll take you down
No more hatred, I've had my revenge
Eye for an eye, taste my revenge

Caught in a time warp, rage in the wind
The shock of surprise still in your eyes
As you met your violent end
Your strength was failing, degrading you was power
My recourse is complete my friend
So bittersweet

No more anger, I've had my revenge
Beg for mercy, I'll take you down
No more hatred, I've had my revenge
Eye for an eye, taste my revenge

As you implore on bended knee
Do you regret what you've done to me?
No matter how you plead, I'll take you down

The hate is rising, the swell of fear takes over
And, oh the taste is sweet me friend
So bittersweet

No more anger, I've had my revenge
Beg for mercy, I'll take you down
No more hatred, I've had my revenge
Eye for an eye, taste my revenge

As you implore on bended knee
Do you regret what you've done to me?
No matter how you plead, I'll take you down


03. Long Since Dark

It's been long since dark

Sitting here bathed in the moonshade
Underneath a willow'tree
To stare above, the sky is burning
The diamonds dance in nocturnal symphony
What does it mean? How do I fit into the scheme?

Why is there dark sky above, what does it veil?
Is there a purpose to the point
Beyond the norm we hail?

Reflecting on my future to come
Underneath the crescent moon
Long since dark, and my thoughts are flowing
And deeper still, beyond the cloak of unknown
Relentless drone, why was I put here, left alone?

Why do I hunger to know what will I gain?
Is there true wisdom without end
Or will I find just pain?

How many times do we take for granted
Simple things that make life sweet
Enraptured by material longings
We miss the point, we need to know, to see
Beyond your being, and in the void lies the meaning

Just as the dark sky above had spoke to me
The answer came so clear, then vanished
For a moment I was free

I am free


04. Epitaph

Mark my grave, and call the winds of torment
Oh, remember me now, and feed the wind with your dreams
Feel my name, and feel my blood in your veins
Now the tide will turn, I will live on through you
Mark my name upon the flesh you create
No, don't cry for me, my son, myself

I am waiting my son, on the threshold to the other side
Cannot tell you what is here
What I see now is beyond your mind

I am formless, but I feel
All the questions burning in your head
Learn your lesson and never grieve
For there is no beginning, and there is no end

I'm standing at the door of time, I see life complete

Truth is never what is seems
Bodies wither, but your mind still dreams
No one ever can rest in peace
Until they've learned the game and become light to darkness
See me shine

I'm standing at the door of time, I see life complete
Oh father where will I be when I meet my time?
You will pass on and follow me, into the sanctuary

I am in the mirror, see my reflection in the stars
And as you search for truth, so I will shine to spur you on
Spur you on
Bathe in the pure truth of my light

Time is an illusion, death is not conclusion

All those who seek the truth will questions still remaining
Now listen closely, and all will be so clear
I am a messenger, a bringer of light from the other side
So chosen now to teach while drifting between lives
Drifting, drifting

I will be reborn


05. Eden Lies Obscured

The quest for Eden leads us on, fuel to theorize
Is there a place in time where war and peace collide?

Our lives begin naked and unknowing
Given time we spoil as desire shapes our will

Sing unto me sinners, the masses are on fire
The flames skin deep through the core of life
The minions learn through fear and uprise
Fading in the distant haze the myths we've made burn on

Sing a song of sadness of lunacy's mad lore
Bastardized by the dogs of war
A woman still pure made a whore
Leaders throughout history killed for Eden's gain

No one knows where Eden lies
Between hope and fantasy so pure
No one knows where Eden lies
Fools sits on high so Eden lies obscured
From our view

Inside your mind is the key to the garden's gate

The quest for Eden leads us on, fuel to theorize
Is there a place in time where war and peace collide?

Sing unto me sinners and share with me your minds
The keys to knowledge we seek to find
Those who conform push thorns in our eyes
But still I persist join in my cause
For change is eclipsed by apathy

No one knows where Eden lies
Fools sit on high, so Eden lies obscured


06. The Mirror Black

One night I had a dream, of a maiden in black and silver
She said to me why are you afraid?
Why is the truth so hard to attain?

I will show you your fears, just look in the mirror
You can conquer your fears, look at me

Forty days and forty dreams, darkened visions
Incline the reason, philosophy cannot soothe your soul
But in the mirror the truth will be known

I will show you your fears, just look into the mirror
You can conquer your fears, look in deep

See unobtrusive, through the lies
No longer afraid, afraid to die

And so lived the dreams, danced with the maiden
Made love to blackness, she said to me you are not alone
Don't be afraid to cry
No more terror sleeps in me, I will not cry I'll be strong
The last tear has rolled down on my face
I am stronger, stronger than yesterday

I will show you your fears, just look into the mirror
You can conquer your fears, look at me

In the mirror you might not like what you see
For the mirror reflects the fears that you feel
In the mirror you might not like what you see
The mirror, the mirror is calling.


07. Seasons Of Destruction

Feel my pain, live my sorrow
Do you know me, I am destruction
Conflicts brings, eternal devastation
Kill the war pigs, who deceive the nations

Here this message across the sea of the dead
Will we ever live this dream I have bled

And through politics and crime
Forgotten future dies, the seasons has begun
To rise again
And in the dark we weep
We cry and we sing, don't let it all begin

These times are seasons of destruction
And each day is a little more cold
Reasons why elude those who structure our lives
So make a change, before it's too late

Look around you see the world that we've made
This grand creation, our human race
No control, no help from above
It's up to mankind, what we live in fear of

Feel this message implanted in your head
We will never live to see the bloodshed

Stop the conflicts coming rise
Before seasons of destruction drag us down
Baptismal fire

And through this mystic dawn
Our minds are free and strong
Born again as one

These times are seasons of destruction
And each day is a little more cold
Reasons why elude those who structure our lives
So make a change, before it's too late

Feel my pain, hear my warning
Kill the war pigs, there's a new age dawning


08. One More Murder

These day it's a cold reality, living life on the street
No time left to bite the hand that feeds
The lure of money corrupts the weak, and soon they fall

Little boy turns to man with a weapon when
he's poisoned with crack
This time it was his turn to dies
Fate call his number in a bloody goodbye

Play war games, crack cocaine, all for material gain
Stray gunfire an innocent dies
The shadow of hope bleeds as power begets greed

One more murder and one more death
Make no difference in the street
Come tomorrow you could be dead
That's the grim reality

And the media they feed off the sickness
They stoke the fire as they eat
All the while being glamorized by rap
The lure of power creates a death trap of social decay

Play war games, crack cocaine, all for material gain
In the end, your life is spend
The shadow of hope bleeds as power begets greed

One more murder and one more death
Make no difference in the street
Come tomorrow you could be dead
That's the grim reality

One more murder
Makes no difference in the street
One more murder
That's the grim reality

No future, no future, no future on the street


09. Communion

I will not worship your deity
There is no place in your religion for me
Slaves to the vision of a dying world
I malign
One with the universe, one star will shine

Who will be chosen, not one will know
The path to the perfect way, it is slow
All needs and all human traces of thoughtlessness
I resign
I pray to the alien, and we align

Greater understanding really isn't hard to find
Never will you see unless you open up your mind
Religious misdirection washes out reality
Tear down the facade and see into infinity

Communion is evolution
Of the mind to a higher form of reason
Communion, a resolution
A search for inner peace

I will not worship your deity
There is no place in your religion for me
Slaves to the vision of a dying world
I malign
One with the universe, one star will shine

Greater understanding really isn't hard to find
Never will you see unless you open up your mind
Religious misdirection washes out reality
Tear down the facade and see into infinity

Communion is evolution
Of the mind to a higher form of reason
Communion, a resolution
A search for inner peace

Communion is evolution
Of the mind to a higher form of reason
Communion, a resolution
A search for inner peace
