02. Heaven

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Look towards the sea,
Tell me what do you see?
Will you know what it is when you've found it?

You searched high above and you searched far below
But it still seems so far and you know it

Time - It dwindles away
There's a clock on the wall
And it seems that is calling your name
But you can't run away
He'll be right there behind you
Reminding you it's not a game

I will conquer the beast and I'll swim the seven seas
And my heart will still beat and I'll never give up
I will walk desert plains and endure gruelling pain
And my heart will still beat and I'll never give up

Heaven is a heartbeat away for your dreams of
Tomorrow could end today
Heaven is a heartbeat away for your dreams of
Tomorrow could end today.


03. Rise Again

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
Heat from the ground feeds the fire
My desire to live with this rage
With thoughts of you filling my nights
And my days...

Sounds of the speaking of tongues
Visions of circles undone
Keeps this heart of mine beating
For the time of our meeting will come

Now, I turn to the gods
Whichever will listen
From below or above

Hear my cry,
Feel my pain
If I should fall,
I'll start over again

Hear my cry,
Feel my pain
If I should die,
I will rise again

I scream to the sky full of anger
My body increasingly weaker

[SOLO]

I won't die for you
I won't die for you
Heaven is a heartbeat away

Hear my cry,
Feel my pain
If I should fall,
I'll start over again

Hear my cry,
Feel my pain
If I should Die,
I will rise again.


04. One Day I'll Win

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
one day i'll win
one day i'll win
one day you will see
one day i'll win
one day i'll win

For i wish it to be
and then you will see
one day i'll win
look in my eyes

you'll see a different part of me
hear my words speak
you'll hear a different part of me
yes i know i'm a simple man
yes i know it's a complex land
if i tell myself i can if i dream
therefore i am

oh lord, please hear me oh lord,
please hear my song
it's all i own, it's all i own
look in my eyes

you'll see a different part of me
hear my words speak
you'll hear a different part of me


05. We Are Not Separate

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
launch the silver spear
the world will cry a tear
in the heavens will appear another angel
hear the elders cry
waiting for their time
as they look towards the heavens
why won't they answer?
we are playing with nature
splitting the atom
confusing religions
killing the masses

we are not separate from what we destroy
time has come for us to make the only choice
we are not separate from what we destroy
time has come for us to make the only choice

we rape for our power
not caring for life
we tarnish our waters
'til they are as black as night
we visualize the future
with the eyes of the blind
we hear nature calling
but we still deny

we are not separate from what we destroy
time has come for us to make the only choice


06. Birth Of A Hero

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
he was a young boy
about to be a man
she loved him so
oh please don't go
down on his knees
the blade passed with ease
shoulder to shoulder
as it pierces her heart
out in the fields
the boy becomes a man
taste of blood in his throat
feel of death on his hands
he shall fall on this dark, misty night
as he falls he hears his loved one cry
birth of a hero
death of a man
she'll never understand
why he left her hand
he was a young boy
she loved him so
she watched the sun set
and longed for his journey home
flags fly low
the blade cut deep
now she must bear the wounds
that memories bleed


07. Creation

[Instrumental]


08. Sin

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
black is the night that calls me
sinner from a sin
the waters that once did bless me
now burn my skin fearing the fields of fire
and the war that's within

i'll draw my sword for the last time
it's here this will end
black is the night that calls me
a voice from within
playing with my emotions
when will it end?

promising pure desire
of the pleasures of sin

i'll draw my sword for the last time
it's here this will end
you may try to find me
i'll hide deep in your head
you may try to fight me

i'm a seed from deep within
you may not recall inviting me
but i was there the first time you sinned
you may not recall inviting me
but i will be here until the end
(and here it will end)


09. Song Of Roland

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
as crusaders ravage the earth
at night their swords and shields hang to their side
for the battle they had forsaken
for the glory they had fortaken

the king rides ahead of the group
homeward bound he marches his troops
for fair land france lies in the balance
for foe man france home of the gallant
song of roland

never knight be so worthy
song of roland
never knight be so worthy
the king holds grief in his eyes

for his nephew he's left behind
to ensure the background is stable
to ensure them against attack
the king kneels to his nephew,
brave knight prince roland
he holds tears in his eyes
and pain in his heart

'for our god's we tear our world's apart
and with this death i leave you
one last thought
never knight be so worthy
till france be no more'
as lances draw upon the enemy
a sea of waving banners surround,
the moors fall from the hillside
like the rain in the dark forest
as the battle rolls on
the men fall to ground

their ears ache for the shrill of the horn,
but roland persists on holding his ground,
'let us strike a mighty blow
for our lord and our god!'
song of roland
never knight be so worthy
song of roland
never knight be so worthy


10. Crossing Two Rivers

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
crossing two rivers
and fields in the dark
he is in love enslaved by the heart
she waits by the window for
the first sight of her love
she hopes and prays

that nothing will keep their love apart
two separate kingdoms
two separate lives thrown apart
by the hate and lies
she waits by the window

for the love that left her arms
she hopes and prays
that one day their hearts will beat as one
even though their world's at war
love grows stronger than before
the moats between their love grow shallow
crossing two rivers
and fields in the dark

he is in love enslaved by the heart
she waits by the window
for the love that left her arms
she hopes and prays
that one day their hearts will beat as one
even though their world's at war
love grows stronger than before
the moats between their love grow shallow


11. Troubled Mind

Music by Toumas Youngblood
Lyrics by Richard Warner
closing my eyes again
to forget about the day
i've seen it all before
and i'll see it all again
but i'll never know just why

oh lord, help me to see a way
to live this dream
for my time is running short
and my patience wearing thin
by morning i'll never know

what shape i'll be in
a broken rainbow falls from the sky
the tears of sorrow fill a young man's eyes
there's a dark cry from deep inside
from a splintering heart
this river i ride on always
seems to flow my way
and the stars i look to guide me
shine brighter than the day

the silence of the night
calms a troubled mind
the worries of the day
just seem to fade away
(fade away)

a broken rainbow falls from the sky
the tears of sorrow fill a young man's eyes
there's a dark cry
from deep inside from a splintering heart
