01. The Dark

The smoke from my last cigarette
Disappears into the lights
Waiting on something to make this feeling right
I twist and moan, and turn the other cheek
I wait for my moment to be free
I'm not alone
I'm not alone

The night is black it twists and turns
Inside it's agony
It waits for you, it waits for me, in all its majesty
I can feel it, I can hear it, I can see it
Slowly coming closer to me now
It's breathing, heart is beating, thoughts misleading
Reality has somehow broken down
Slowly slips away, slips into the grave
I don't think I'll ever, ever, ever get away
Somehow save our souls, as the darkness calls,
From beyond these walls
I feel something's going wrong

The dark descends upon this
World of anger, hate and greed
Surrounding you, engulfing me
Now all that we can see
Lying, cheating, children bleeding
Mothers pleading
Will you stop it, will you stop it now
Can you feel it, do you hear it
It's so near, it's coming closer, coming closer now

Tell me what you see
Tell me what you know
Tell me can we ever really ever get away
Try to save our souls as the dark unfolds
All that's still untold
I feel something's going wrong

And as the dark begins to die into another day
And fate is testing once again all we can do is pray
To sweet Jesus, will you lead us, do you hear us
Calling to you, calling to you now
We're praying, contemplating, situations
That can fall before us even know

Tell us what you need, tell us what you want
As the hands of time have all but exited the play
Tell us what's in store, fall all that stand before
As the dark unfolds:
I feel something's going wrong


02. People Say - Gimme Some Hell

I told you about the sirens
And the hunger for flesh
I showed you the dungeons
Beneath the city's unrest
Feel the power of the night
Make the legions strong
And by the grace of the witch
I bring to you this song: hear the people say

Hear the people say: hear the people say
Hear the people say, just gimme some hell

We enter the halls of the mountain king
Beyond the doors of the dark
Flying on strange wings
From the streets to the gutter
In a summer's rain
Do you hear the hounds they call
And tonight he grins again: hear the people say

Hear the people say: hear the people say
Hear the people say, just gimme some hell

Somewhere in time I believe
Visions off in a dream
Start as nothing turn to something

Look to the morning sun
Through the hourglass
One child turns to me
And says: Take a chance

Hear the people say: hear the people say
Hear the people say, just gimme some hell

Somewhere in time I believe
Visions off in a dream
Start as nothing turn to something


03. Guardian Of Forever

The silent night begins to call
He listens for the voices from the crumbling walls
And through the mist beneath the sky
He watches as the seconds of your life go by

I see sorrows, laughter, fear from the other side
Rainbows blackened, innocence fractured
And left to die
And if I could change the world
I'd stop just watching
Time, as she unfurls
All the lives still searching

Searching for the light of day
He always sees the dark this way
He sits here helplessly watching time
It's beginning to fade
See it's not in his control
All the lives bought and sold
Nothing there to grasp or hold
Watching your soul fly away
Fly away

I've seen chapters, world disasters
Nearing genocide
Schizophrenia, megalomania
Mass suicide
And if I could change the world
I'd stop just watching
Time, as she unfurls
All the lives still searching

Searching for the light of day
He always sees the dark this way
He sits here helplessly watching time
It's beginning to fade
See it's not in his control
All the lives bought and sold
He sits there helplessly watching time
It's beginning to fade


04. Slipping Away

Bridges burn, the lessons learned
Often slip the mind
Complicate the life we live
With answers we can't find
And it's true, yeah

And all that we plan everyday
And all that we have is slipping away

Set apart a timeless flight
In search of destiny
Visions twisting through the night
Are shadows we now see
And it's true, yeah

And all that we plan everyday
And all that we have is slipping away

Chase our dreams endlessly
To see what we can find
With everyday a part of us
Is left to ponder time
And it's true, yeah

And all that we plan everyday
And all that we have is slipping away


05. Walk Alone

How can you walk alone child
How can you walk alone
How can you walk alone child
How can you walk alone
Everytime I look into your eyes
I feel the pain inside
How can you walk alone child
How can you walk alone

I feel it, I feel it, down inside yes
I see it, I see it all the time yes
I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding from inside
Can Christ see it
Someone heal me
Before my time's up

Why can't I sleep at night dear
Why can't I sleep at night
Why can't I sleep at night dear
Why can't I sleep at night
Everytime I try to close my eyes
The nightmares arrive
Why can't I sleep at night dear
I just can't sleep at night

I feel it, I feel it, down inside yes
I see it, I see it all the time yes
I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding from inside
Can Christ see it
Someone heal me
Before my time's up

I'm telling you, better listen to me
This is what it's gonna take for your soul to be free
If you feel like pushing to the edge
Better take a step back, find a friend
Or something you can hold on to
That'll make you feel better, that'll make you cool
And if you got one, give it to me so
I can finally be set free

How do you walk alone child


06. The Non Sensible Ravings Of The Lunatic Mind

Thoughts once flourished, now twisting, curving
Around his head, all his nerves are burning
Tormented spirits with angry demons
They dance through his mind
With no apparent reason

Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Lost in confusion, there is no solution
For his life of crime

Walks the night with the neon children
His strange delights, they've all been written
Controls the cities of desire, now touch him
Feel him, he's hell on fire

Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Lost in confusion, there is no solution
For his life of crime

Moving faster, towards disaster, let's his life go
Beyond distinction, the only kingpin
He's running the show

He cheats and steals and he lies with reason
Your precious life is his open season
He's the ruler of the twisted
Like sheep they follow, there's no resisting

Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Something inside the mind is twisting
Slightly deranged, there's something missing
Lost in confusion, there is no solution
For his life of crime


07. No Escape

Let's go into the darkness surrounding you
Mind goes, it's the first step to breaking you

Chase the wind as you twist and spin and you
Wanna hide, wanna die
To everything that they did or bring, and you
Wanna hide, wanna die

I know it's too late to save your soul
Mind games, they cut you like the bitter cold

Sucks you into this life of sin and you
Wanna hide, wanna die
No escape from this world you made and you
Wanna hide, wanna die

All emotions now turning to stone
Icy fingers gripping your soul
No escape from the fears that you've shown
It's all you have in this world of your own

Don't wait, you must discard what's poisoned you
It's okay, I know one day we'll find the truth

Chase the wind as you twist and spin and you
Wanna hide, wanna die
No escape from the dreams you've made and you
Wanna hide, wanna die


08. Father, Son, Holy Ghost

Oh, our world how it's changed
Nothing's the same, I don't think it could ever be

Life, life rearranged
Body insane, what the hell do you want from me

With every second surrounding you
You just can't think when you're scared
And is the end really approaching you
Why can't we run away to another time
Another place where your soul is safe

Complications in your life
They say only the strong survive
Revolution coast to coast
Father, Son, Holy Ghost

Watch, watch the deranged
It rattles my brain, I just cannot comprehend

Things, things that I see on my TV
When will all this madness end

When every waking hour is engulfing you
It's just so hard to think when you're scared
And is the end really approaching you
Why can't we fly away to another time
Another place where your soul is safe

Complications in your life
They say only the strong survive
Revolution coast to coast
Father, Son, Holy Ghost

With every second surrounding you
It's just so hard to think when you're scared
And is the end really approaching you
Why can't we dream away to another time
Another place where your soul is safe

Complications in your life
They say only the strong survive
Revolution coast to coast
Father, Son, Holy Ghost


09. All The Time

I can only stare and wonder
Dreams and visions
That I ponder, so clearly now
There before me, figure in darkness
Rage and anger, cold and heartless
He wants to take me back somehow

I can't take it no more
Tempting fate, my soul awaits it's crucifixion
I can't take it no more
The influence imprisons me
With it's intrigue, as you can see
A punishment I live out all the time

Something inside me wants to break out
Lies with conviction, leaving no doubt
He's waiting there
Looks for weakness, tries to persuade me
His certain ending is all that I see
He wants to take me back somehow

I can't take it no more
Tempting fate, my soul awaits it's crucifixion
I can't take it no more
The influence imprisons me
With it's intrigue, as you can see
A punishment I live out all the time


10. Nowhere To Run

How do you feel about life
Are you tired of trying
How do you feel about gods
Do you think they were lying
How do you feel about peace
And the wars we keep fighting
In a world divided

They know something we don't know
Not much time here left to go
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run
They just keep denying
We know they're all lying
Soon it will show, soon it will show

How do you feel about war
And the thousands left dying
Can you see through their eyes
Politicians conniving
Terrorism, disease and the suicide bombings
No one's disarming

They know something we don't know
Not much time here left to go
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run
They just keep denying
We know they're all lying
Soon it will show, soon it will show

What's left for me to say
We are all headed for judgement day

They know something we don't know
Not much time here left to go
Nowhere to run, nowhere to run
They just keep denying
We know they're all lying
Soon it will show, soon it will show


11. Pain

You cannot run or hide
From the pain that lives inside
Taking everything you own
As we speak it's taking your soul
It will never wait
It anticipates
Every move you make
Sends you out of control

Now...
The rage inside, you can feel it grow
The knife in your heart, it begins to show
You run and you run but can't get away
From the agony of the pain

You cannot stop it now
Every nerve in your body growls
Mind craves spirit unrest
Here's to the curse that now lay at rest

It will never wait
It anticipates
Every move you make
Sends you out of control

Now...
The rage inside, you can feel it grow
A knife in the heart, it begins to show
I run and I run but can't get away
From the agony of the pain


12. Outside The Door

As I walk in the shadows of darkness
Without a place to hide
You know I can't help but look over my shoulder
I'm waiting for the knife to arrive

And I know I might seem a little bit paranoid
You know, it's just my way
Sometimes I get the feeling I'm on borrowed time
Anyway, that's what most of us say

Something's taking over me
I don't know just what could it be
Feels strange, like a kind of glow
What it is I don't want to know

And in another life I swear I've heard it all before
And in the dead of night
It sits just outside the door

I believe that tonight I'll be wasted
Can't stop me when I'm out on the town

You know, I wake dreaming about tomorrow
And what it may all bring to light
You know, I believe all men were created equal
Red, yellow, black or white

Something's taking over me
I don't know just what could it be
Feels strange, like a kind of glow
What it is I don't want to know

And in another life I swear I've heard it all before
And in the dead of night
It sits just outside the door

I believe that tonight I'll be wasted
Can't stop me when I'm out on the town
I can feel it, I can taste it
Can't stop me when I'm out on the town


13. Fly Away

Long ago, oh so long ago
How time passed slowly by

And the days seem like years
Never a thought or a fear
Ever really mattered to me

Now I stand here today just trying to make my way
Nothing's getting through to me
I'll fly away

Had to look, you just had to look
At the signs that passed us by

I've got one thing to say
Judge each of your days by the light you see
Cause time she goes by like a bird in the sky
Till there's nothing left to see
I'll fly away

All this time spinning round, holding on to nothing I can feel
Reaching out, full of doubt, twist and turn
But I'm always falling down
Time to free your soul:

I'll fly away
