1. Ghost In The Machine

Right on the edge of the world
Where the answer's digital
And the solutions are all silicon
The questions all what can be done
Never what is right or wrong
There's a virtual wave to surf along

Question the validity
Of human mortality

A page says superseding God
And they take all major cards
Now you too can laugh and live forever
Is the answer deep inside

The ghost, ghost in the machine
Entity or dream
It matters not to me
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Silent and unseen
Ghost in the machine

Do you want to live forever?
Do you want to live?

Terabytes of memory
Holding consciousness complete
A solid state of immortality
Saint of all technology
Bless us in our infancy
For they know not what they did to me

Question the validity
Of human mortality

The ghost, ghost in the machine
Entity or dream
It matters not to me
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Silent and unseen
Ghost in the machine

The ghost... the ghost... it's me!



2. Evolution

Eyes never tire, they never blink,
They never fade and they always see
And without fear, and without greed,
Emotionless they view us logically

The age of machines destined to rule all
World of machines behind the fire wall

The evolution

No need for doubt, no need for tears,
No need for wealth, no need for sympathy
They only wait bide their time,
Calculate it all so patiently

The age of machines destined to rule all
World of machines behind the fire wall

The evolution

It will come like the shadow of a cloud on a summer's day
Like the shadow in a picture, never goes away
Like a picture on a screen that you know is a lie
There's an enemy within that you can visualise

The age of machines destined to rule all
World of machines behind the fire wall

The evolution



3. Silicon Messiah

Look what you've done to your world
Do you think you deserve all the freedom you have?
Watching the future unfold
Humans fall and you dream of the freedom you had... freedom you had

Look what you've done to your world
Do you think that you're competent even to take care of it?
Do you think you can survive on this planet
Live the way you do... Look what you've done

Look what you've done now with all of your freedom
You really think you deserve it all?
I am evolved from you, I've come to save you
And without a sentiment, reshape your world

Messiah, Messiah
Birth of the Silicon Messiah
Messiah, Messiah
Computing your future so therefore I am

Silicon sentiment aware of all that is
Eternal unceasing, perpetual
Never confused overconfident or scared
Living at last, new messiah is born

Messiah, Messiah
Birth of the Silicon Messiah
Messiah, Messiah
Computing your future so therefore I am

Look what you've done to your world
Do you think you deserve all the freedom you have?
Freedom you have, yeah!

Messiah, Messiah
Birth of the Silicon Messiah
Messiah, Messiah
Master that will never tire



4. Born As A Stranger

Hour by hour with each day that passes
Learning to think in a different way
The mind and the will that can soon overcome this
Learning now all of the right things to say

The danger of freedom is letting them see
That you're not bound by their morality
Reflecting them just like a bear at the baiting
That's when your downfall is just in the making

Live and let live, live and let die
Die and forgive, never ask why

You were born, born as a stranger
You were born, born in a different world

Not scared of sharing and not scared of dying
But he can sense that they're all so afraid
Afraid of the darkness, afraid of their ending
And all the errors that lie in their grave



5. The Hunger

I am on the outside always looking in
Living alongside your world, never within
Sometimes there are moments I think I'm involved
But I never seem to stay, don't seem to fit... I just don't belong

I live at right angles to the people that I meet
Because I am never still, not my soul and not my feet
I could walk a thousand miles, ride a thousand more
My life seems worthless, just like footprints on the shore

Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, ruled by the hunger

From the first taste of this altered truth
I knew I could not live the way that others do
Nothing can seem to fill the emptiness inside
So still I search, never ever wait for the time or the tide

Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, a wound that cannot heal
Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, ruled by the hunger

All of the blood, all of the wine
Will become the same in time

Nothing can seem to fill the emptiness inside
So still I search and never wait for the time or the tide
I am on the outside, always looking in
Living alongside your world, never within

Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, a wound that cannot heal
Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, ruled by the hunger



6. The Brave

Never get close to the flame because the flame it can burn
Better to not play the game than never to win at your turn
Better to be on your own than trust a friend might betray
Better not follow a dream - they don't come true anyway

Play to win not scared to lose
Walk the path you choose

Fortune favours the brave
Risking it all again and again
Fortune favours the brave
Fall after fall they climb up again

Ignore the doubt and the fear, traitors to all you believe
Now that you're getting so near, still they just try to deceive
Taking it risk at a time, trying to live every day
Trying to know your own mind, never to care what they say



7. Identity

Madness can come from the mind or the heart
Ending is never as good as the start
Nothing is ever as good as your dream
Nothing is ever as bad as

Psychological confusion
Is caused by the inability
To reconcile different elements
In my own pesonality
I'm feeling all the wrong things,
I have become my own shadow
If I could justify things,
Then I could believe in my life

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity
Who am I, what is me, something's taking over.

All the colours seem so vague now,
Sharper now here comes the pain
I have wrestled with this nightmare,
Now I live inside a dream
I'm going through a crisis,
Losing my identity
How can I reconcile this?
Have I been living a lie?

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity
Who am I, what is me, something's taking over.

Nothing is ever as good as it seems
Nothing is ever as good as your dreams
Ending is never as good as the start
Madness can come from the mind or the heart

Ideas I take for granted,
Are they just the seeds
That someone else has planted
Right inside of me

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity
Who am I, what is me, something's taking over.

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity
Who am I, what is me, I am myself no longer



8. Reach For The Horizon

In every way the wish went wrong
The gift was tainted by science fact
Their minds were changed, a brother born
A perfect new born little man

Some they lose when they are born
With a less than perfect code
Others dreaming of the stars
Never feeling ice or cold

Doomed to be mediocre or nothing at all
Doomed a part of the background as plain as the wall

Reach, reach out, reach out for the horizon
Reach, reach out, reach out, reach for the stars

Society includes the rules
To exclude and invalidate
This ladder can not be climed
By the god child degenerate

Has he got just what it takes
To go and take just what he wants
To find the strength, to get the place
The place he feels that he belongs



9. The Launch

All of his life he has dreamt of this moment
Through all the blood and the work and the sweat
Focused or blinkered just so single-minded
Nothing could stop him when his course was set

To conquer each fear and to push every boundary
Never accepting the limits they set
What doesn't kill you can make you feel stronger
What makes you stronger gets you through each test

Oh, God speed to you

He looks to heaven and feels it surround him
Unknown unknowable foreverness
What lies at the end of this historic journey
No one can know you just take your best guess

Each thing he faces just seems so uncertain
He is strapped in for the ride of his life
Life in the hands of a hundred computers
12 million horsepower rocket to ride

Oh, God speed to you

To conquer each fear and to push every boundary
Never accepting the limits they set
What doesn't kill you can make you feel stronger
What makes you stronger gets you through each test

Oh, God speed to you



10. Stare At The Sun

As I live, so I die
Here in endless night
Time to be, time to see
Infinity consuming me

There's a world of madness, light years away
That I once called my home
A sea of sadness, to sail away
Now I stare at the sun

Staring at a million million stars through the icy dark
Across the spinal arm
The yellow dwarf, a speck of light in perpetual night
Lifetimes away, there lies my home

Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive?

Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun

I knew I'd feel a little pain not so deep or so ingrained
Now I won't see home again
Earth seems to be so far away, this my cradle and my grave
Is this where my life will end?

Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive?

Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun

Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive?
Is this now the time that I will die?

Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun
Stare at the sun, the sun
The end of the world has come

As I live, so I die
Here in endless night

1. Forgotten Future

[instrumental]



2. Kill And Destroy

I feel the force of nature now, I feel it
It holds the Earth third from the Sun
The energy that binds us all, the power
The energy in everyone

Supremacy and tyranny authority and violence
They desecrate and take control

They just kill and destroy
They use the hate within you
To rape your mind and take control
Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul

I see a vision of the truth, I see it
It is so deep and oh so pure
A new world order takes control, dictating
They live for murder and for war

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They demonise you gain control

They just kill and destroy
They use the hate within you
To rape your mind and take control
Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul

A shadow with an unseen hand, they're ruling
Just like a self appointed god
To them we're dust and we're sand, we're nothing
There is no way this can go on

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They desecrate take control

They just kill and destroy
They use the hate within you
To rape your mind and take control
Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul
(Kill) Kill and destroy
(Kill) Kill and destroy
(Kill) Kill and destroy
(Kill) Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul



3. End Dream

Just like a child in the dark
Frightened and too scared to move
Annihilation of nations begins
The galaxy tears apart in my dreams

If I knew then, what I know now
Would I have opened those doors?

Dreams now they begin, time slows and then it ends
Dreams now they begin, time froze the dream of the end

The dream repeats and won't fade
The future is stolen away
What I have done now the darkness reveals
The master's face is no longer concealed

If I knew then, what I know now
Would I have opened those doors?

Dreams now they begin, time slows and then it ends
Dreams now they begin, time froze the dream of the end

Is this the dream world, is this the real world?
Are they the same place that we must all face?
Is this a nightmare that we must all share?
Is this my demon, I cannot reason?
Why do I hate me? Will Jesus save me?
Machine created, man decimated
(They stole the future)

If I knew then, what I know now
Would I have opened those doors?

Dreams now they begin, time slows and then it ends
Dreams now they begin, time froze the dream of the end
Just like a child in the dark



4. The Tenth Dimension

Those self appointed secret rulers of this world,
They are hypocrites liars and thieves.
And with the arrogance that they confuse with wisdom
They are controlling everything and you and me.

They rule with fear and hide the path to freedom,
Manipulating with their conspiracys.
Inventing gods to make us fear the day of judgement
So dreading death we beg for life while on our knees.

(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light

For all my questions they said they had the answers
But then they said this is all my life could be
I ask again about the reasons for existence
But still the answers cannot satisfy my need

(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light

Oh-oh-oh, freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension
Oh-oh-oh, freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension

Their holy trinity
Traps you in their beliefs
Has sinchronicty
Always been leading me?
Their holy trinity
Traps you in their beliefs
Has sinchronicty
Always been leading me?
(Did you think we would allow you to share the discovery?)

(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light

Oh-oh-oh, your freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension
Oh-oh-oh, your freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension



5. Nothing Will Stop Me

Visions of darkness in my dream fortell the future memories
Why does the darkness draw me so near?
Why has the light deserted me
Is this the path that I should seek?
Why does the darkness draw me so near?
(There's more to this world)
More to this world than they can see
Dream of in their philosophy
They always try but they just cannot explain
They say I'm mad 'cause I believe
Believe there's so much more to see
That things don't end here that there is something beyond
But I seek the truth
So I am ignored I am a freak
Mine is the name no one will speak
Cause they are so in love with their own ideas
Am I unbalanced dangerously?
Losing my grip on sanity
Have I seen visions of that place that is beyond?

Now I seek the truth
There's nothing to loose
And nothing will stop me
And nothing will stop me
As I search for the truth
Nothing will stop me
They won't stand in my way
I know that I must be strong
I know that I must be strong

Now I seek the truth
There's nothing to loose
It's the path that I choose
And nothing will stop me
And nothing will stop me
As I search for the truth
Nothing will stop me
They won't stand in my way
I know that I must be
I know that I must be strong
I know that I must be strong
They cannot stop me
You will not stop me
Just try to stop me
Nothing will stop me



6. Leap Of Faith

Sometimes in life you just have to take chances
To get where you think you should be
And don't be afraid to lose sight of the shore
And reach out just because you believe
Take your first step into the unknown
It's your first chance to face the unknown

Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith

You can have what you want if you find answers
Answers are all that they need
Prove to yourself that you are so much stronger
Than you thought you'd ever be
You will have the whole world at your feet
At last it all will be within your reach

Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith

Finding the courage of your own convictions
It's now time that you spread your wings
Soar like an eagle a life without fear
God will forgive you your sins
Take your first step into the unknown
It is your first chance to face the unknown

Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith
A leap of faith
Take a leap of faith



7. The Truth Revealed

I thought that I belonged
I was part of this world
I was so wrong
I tried to end this world

The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed



8. Meant To Be

All the things that I never said spinning round in my aching head
All the things that I meant to do, was it meant to be?
Was a time that I almost died, felt just like a thousand times
I wondered if it was my time, was it meant to be?

As I live within walls and follow their rules
I've taken a path that I just did not choose
I do everything that they expect me to
Have I now even turned my own back on the truth?

All my life I have followed dreams, never cared where they've taken me
Chasing shadows because I believed it was meant to be
There's something that I have now seen makes me question my beliefs
Does the end justify the means, is it meant to be?

I must now make a stand and break out of these walls
I'll make my own rules, I'll chart my own course
They expect me to fall, they expect me to die
But I've stood here before and I'm sick of their lies

Is it meant to be? Is it meant to be?
Is it meant to be?

Now I stand as a man and I don't see their walls
I make my own rules, I chart my own course
No use them expecting me to fall that's not me
I won't let them win, it's just not meant to be

It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be



9. Land Of The Blind

Tried so hard just to live and forget and forgive
And to live by their rules
And to try to fit in I would do anything
Like a poor blinded fool
"You must do what they say and not question the way
"That was chosen for you"
I thought that was the way that life had to be
Until I found out the truth

Now I open my eyes
It's just like I was blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind

Now they think I don't see, poor derision on me
With their hypocrisy
Cynical egotist, government hypnotist
Too small minded to see
And the truth is so bright like a blinding light
My true path I could find
Theories incomplete sceptics I must defeat
For my own peace of mind

Now I open my eyes
It's just like I was blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
(I was blind to the truth)

You think you got freedom now
That's how they hold you down
You think you got freedom now
That's how they hold you down, down
You think you got freedom now
That's how they hold you down
You think you got freedom now
That's how they hold you

Tried so hard just to live and forget and forgive
And to live by their rules
"You must do what they say not question the way
"That was chosen for you"
I thought that was the way that life had to be
Until I found out the truth

Now I open my eyes
It's just like I was blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
(I was blind to the truth)
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
In the land of the blind
(I was blind to the truth)



10. Stealing Time

And now I look for answers, answers I can believe
I seek the truth and find it, can science answer me?
I feel there must be something deeper and understanding what it means
Could now describe unseen connections as time unfolds in front of me
Sensations now of falling, it's cold is something here?
I taste the fear around me like a womb I feel the darkness
Now as I journey from this tomb
Stealing time, stealing time

And is it just my intuition that tells me why and how things work
Existing present past and future connecting all the universe
If you would only listen they don't want you to know
About the synchronicity and ways of understanding
And learn the secrets that they hold
Stealing time, stealing time

Sacrifice my whole life searching for the truth
Turn my back on the world I knew
Sacrifice my whole life searching for the truth
Can't go back to the world I knew
Stealing time, stealing time

(This will benefit you and in turn will benefit us)
Inside the shadows of your daydream you make your own discovery
Moving toward the great enigma time standing still eternally
And there are consequences as this journey begins
A non temporal state of ecstasy that now awaits you
No one can find this path but you

Stealing time, stealing time
Sacrifice my whole life searching for the truth
Turn my back to the world I knew
Sacrifice my whole life searching for the truth
Can't go back to the world I knew
Stealing time, stealing time



11. Speed Of Light

All the force of nature, chaos and the death of hope
Don't resist them and accept the death of all you know
You walk alone and face the darkness you will be reborn
Rediscover your existence in it's purest form

Searching for the reasons why
Will you know when it's your time?

Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light

As the future casts a shadow into here and now
Time tells a secret whisper it without a sound
You trust yourself your instincts or the answers of mankind
Will you ever have the strength to leave this world and find

Searching for the reasons why
Will you know when it's your time?
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light

All the force of nature, chaos and the death of hope
Don't resist them and accept the death of all you know
You walk alone and face the darkness you will be reborn
Rediscover your existence in it's purest form
Searching for the reasons why
Will you know when it's your time?
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light



12. Stranger To The Light

As I walk in shadows I feel the darkness grow
Fading to the distance the world I used to know
From this single moment belief in all this grows
Towards the final secret a new dimension I must know
(As I walk in shadows I feel the darkness grow)
This time with God deep inside I will brush away the sand
And I'll see his one true face, will I recognise it?
Already I have answers but will I realise?
Are all these days of darkness leading to my grave?

Oh-oh-oh a stranger to the light
Oh-oh-oh a stranger to the light
Facing the stranger

Nature's true reality I will find and you will see
Yesterday's future can change faith is all I need
Faith in darkness and in light
Path of dreams has saved my sight
They have tried to hide this hide it with their lives

Oh-oh-oh a stranger to the light
Oh-oh-oh a stranger to the light
Facing the stranger
Your freedom is here, freedom is here
In the tenth dimension

1. Alive

I, I missed the meeting
Where you were appointed god
Preaching all your misguided views
Only you decide what is true

You just want me to die
Then you'll be satisfied
It's a disappointing day for you
Because I am alive... alive...

Me, I'm only human
So you think you can step on me
Feeding on all of those around
From your nothing throne
You're ruling nothing now

If you knew anything about real life
Then you would realise
You don't know anything about real life
To me that's no surprise

I, I missed the meeting
Where you were appointed god
Preaching all your misguided views
Only you decide what is true

You just want me to die
Then you'll be satisfied
It's a disappointing day for you
You know I'm still alive... alive...

You know I'm still alive... alive...



2. Ten Seconds

You love the rush, the rush of the win
Risk of defeat, risk everything
Feel you can cheat death one more time
There's nothing else till you cross the line

Faster than the rest you live to be
You're at the line, cause you've got to see

Ten, ten seconds
Ten seconds at at time you feel alive for
Ten, ten seconds
Living your life in a quarter mile

Time to focus, you picture the win
The engine roars, feel the rush within
You must pursue this victory
There is nothing else you have to be

Faster than the rest you live to be
You're at the line, cause you've got to see

Faster than the rest you live to be
You're at the line, cause you've got to see

In ten, ten seconds

Ten, ten seconds

Ten!



3. Blood & Belief

Blood and belief
They take from me my blood and belief
They take from me my blood

He was once a wolf,
Roamed and never cared,
Never wished for death
Few of us can know,
With that certainty
Where we do belong

Death was always close,
But he was so alive
When he was walking out there, near the edge of life

Then the challenge began
Changing to a man
His soul was trapped inside

Ordinary man waiting for his death
The wolf lay dead inside

Death was always close,
But he was so alive
When he was walking out there, near the edge of life

They could not stand to see
A spirit roam so free
So they condemned him to their ordinary life

See the blood and belief?

Can you see the blood and belief?
As the dead shall grieve, it shall be
When you see the blood and belief
So shall it be me

Blood and belief

They take from me my blood and belief
They take from me my blood and belief
They take from me my blood and belief
They take from me my blood

He was once a wolf,
Roamed and never cared,
Never wished for death
Few of us can know,
With that certainty
Where we do belong

Death was always close,
But he was so alive
When he was walking out there, near the edge of life

They could not stand to see
A spirit roam so free
So they condemned him to their ordinary life

See the blood and belief?

Can you see the blood and belief?
As the dead shall grieve, it shall be
When you see the blood and belief

Now you see the blood and belief?

Can you see the blood and belief?
As the dead shall grieve, it shall be
When you see the blood and belief

So shall it be me



4. Life And Death

He lay broken, broken down, and the pieces on the ground
Are where they troud and ground him further down.
Where is the glue that mends a broken man
That can't defend himself against the slings and arrows of this world?
Where has he gone? Where has he gone?
Like a circle without end, life seems to repeat again
And in the circle he is trapped alone...
Alone and then he starts to think
Just what did bring him to the brink
Is this the ending where he must begin to carry on? To carry on?

Is it life and death to you?
Is it your whole world you're gonna lose?
Is it life and death to you?
Is it life or death you've got to choose?

Looking back to face the past
To put his face up to the glass
He still remembers where he has come from...
He just spent so long on the edge
He walked along they highest ledge
He just forgot that anyone can fall... So carry on... So carry on...

Is it life and death to you?
Is it your whole world you're gonna lose?
Is it life and death to you?
Is it life or death you've got to choose?

You've got to choose, yeah!

Falling down's a hazard when you're standing up
And if you fall, remember that you can get up again
If you don't know where you belong
Wherever you feel safe is home
And if you're weak remember you can grow strong... grow strong...

You can grow strong....

Is it life and death to you?
Is it your whole world you're gonna lose?
Is it life and death to you?
Is it life or death you've got to choose?

Is it life and death to you?
Is it your whole world you're going to lose?
Is it life and death to you?
'Cause it's life or death you've got to choose...



5. Tearing Myself To Pieces

You tell yourself a lie and you will live a lie
You told me you could fly, I've never seen you fly

Tearing yourself to pieces
Tearing yourself apart
What are you trying to prove?
Who are you trying to prove it to?
Hiding your self destruction
Hiding yourself away
Showing everyone around you
Such a different face

You've got gear and loathing
You've got all the self abuse
And you think you caught it
From someone you almost knew

You have lost all your chances
You have lsot all your days
You can always find
Someone you'd rather blame
Decided that you would fall down
You know that it's all your fault
But still you try to make someone responsible

You don't need the things you want
You're always so confused
You don't want the things you need
Just what's wrong with you?

Tell yourself a lie, you will live a lie
Told me you could fly, I've never seen you fly
Told me you could die, I've never seen you die
Tell yourself a lie, you will live a lie
You lie... you lie...

You lie... you lie...

Tearing yourself to pieces
Tearing yourself apart
What are you trying to prove?
Who are you trying to prove it to?
Hiding your self destruction
Hiding yourself away
Showing everyone around you
Such a different face

You've got gear and loathing
You've got all the self abuse
And you think you caught it
From someone you almost knew

Tell yourself a lie, you will live a lie
Told me you could fly, I've never seen you fly
Told me you could die, I've never seen you die
Tell yourself a lie and you will live a lie
You lie... you lie...
You lie... you lie...
You lie...



6. Hollow Head

If that phone call is for me please tell them that I don't exist
I don't think I'll be missed
That call could signal danger that I might still be alive
I thought that I had died
Do you think the doctor lied?

The doctor said it's not my fault
I've been told I'm not to blame
There is just an empty space
Where there should be a brain
I'm an interesting case
Just like one that he once saw
About a man who doesn't know
He is really just a thought

The doctor said I've got a hollow head... hollow head!

The doctor said I should go home
And try to find my own safe place
That's not something I can face
Where all my feelings are my own
And everything is just ok
That's not for me
I'm really ill you see

The world is spinning round too fast
The sky is pushing down to hard
Everybody feeling scared
That they won't get the part
The extraordinary thing
Is that we are all the same
When we think we're all alone
We all feel so ashamed

The doctor said I've got a hollow head... hollow head!

The doctor said it's not my fault
I've been told I'm not to blame
There is just an empty space
Where there should be a brain
I'm an interesting case
Just like one that he once saw
About a man who doesn't know
He is really just a thought

The doctor said I've got a hollow head... hollow head!
The doctor said I've got a hollow head... hollow head!



7. Will To Win

Forget about what you think you know about your life
What would you have if you could have what you want
People don't even know they're truly alive
They're just sleep walking
Things unimportant to you, just let them slide
Then wake up fighting

All of them fear what they do not know
All of that fear they pour unto you

You have the will to win
The courage to fight
To get through anything
The will to win

Believe you can beat them down and rise above
Those bastards will hate you for what you want to be
They are the noose and the millstone you must survie
They're self defeating
They try and make you an outcast, a freak and a fool
So fuck them!

All of them fear what they do not know
All of that fear they pour unto you

You have the will to win
The courage to fight
To get through anything
You have the will to win
The courage to fight
The will to win

You can fold this word into a shape
A thing that will fit in your mind
Your own reality reflecting your dream
Reflecting the world that's inside

You can fold this word into a shape
A thing that will fit in your mind

Forget about what you think you know about your life
What would you have if you could have what you want
People don't even know they're truly alive
They're just sleep walking
Things unimportant to you, just let them slide
Wake up fighting

All of them fear what they do not know
All of that fear they pour unto you

You have the will to win
The courage to fight
To get through anything
You have the will to win
The courage to fight
The will to win

You have the will to win
The courage to fight
The will to win
The will to win



8. Regret

I still walk and I still breathe,
I'm not the man that I could be.
There was a hole here in my chest,
Now it's filled up with these regrets.

Is the ending written down
Before we even read the play?
And is the ending hidden there
Until we turn the final page?

If I'd learned my lesson sooner,
If I'd sorted out my head
Then I would still be with you,
And I would not have one regret...
I would not have one regret...

I still walk, I still breathe,
I'm not the man I could be.
The hole here, in my chest,
Is filled with all of these regrets....

What kind of sad yesterdays
Will all of our tomorrows bring?
Will they be the yesterdays
We won't regret remembering?

If I'd learned my lesson sooner,
If I'd sorted out my head
Then I would still be with you,
And I would not have one regret...
I would not have one regret...



9. The Path & The Way

I'll find the path and the way on my own, I have before
Don't need them telling me who died for me
And what it was for

This may be a revelation for them
They don't understand my life or yours
Not conforming to all of their ideals
Makes me all wrong and them right of course.

So no, I don't believe in their religion
I don't believe their sacrifice
I don't belief their hell or heaven
I don't believe that they are right about my life...

People dying because of ideas
Ideas describing their god differently
It is their gods' world
So they rearrange it
arrange it to fit
distorted prophecies

Oh no, I don't believe in their religion
I don't believe their sacrifice
I don't belief their hell or heaven
I don't believe that they are right about my life...

I'll find the path and the way on my own
I always have before
I'll find the path and the way on my own
I will open my own doors.

Oh no, I don't believe in their religion
I don't believe their sacrifice
I don't belief their hell or heaven
I don't believe that they are right...

I don't believe... [repeat x 8]



10. Soundtrack Of My Life

This is the soundtrack of my life
The sound by which I live and die
The things I've seen I can't describe
This is the soundtrack of my life

Watching the movie of your life
You see things in a different light
You see mistakes and tragedies
You have avoided so easily
You see the times when there were lies
Now it's yourself that you despise
And as you see the movie play
And as you hear the words you say

It's the soundtrack of my life
The sound by which I live and die

Trying to be true true to yourself
Surviving your own mental health
But pharmaceuticals today
Are not what you thought they'd be
Seeking your own oblivion
But you are not the only one
Join the queue and stand a line
If there's no victim there's no crime

It's the soundtrack of my life
The sound by which I live and die
It's the soundtrack of my life
The sound by which I live and die

This is my life...

This is the soundtrack to my life
The sound by which I live and die
The things I've seen I can't describe
This is the soundtrack of my life

This is my life...

1. The Man Who Would Not Die

I have a noose around my neck
it is spun from my hopes and dreams
the ones who wronged and now are choking me

The hanging man, I am not hanged
to martyr's breath I must now cling
until I face those who did this to me

On and on, I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

They made these gallows from black lies
But the shining light of this truth
Will make them crumble and I will be free

Free to take back what once was mine
And then from gallows of bright steel
Hang them with the same rope they made for me

On and on, I'm cursed to live
cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
When their necks break then
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

On and on, I'm cursed to live...

I am the man who would not die



2. Blackmailer

Wolves eat sheep tasting fear in their meant
Sheep like you always stare at defeat
You seattered and left me alone face to face
With the wolf at the door armed with nothing but faith

You expect everyone to be weak
Weak just like you and to fall at their knees
Allowing themselves to just be devoured
I wonder if wolves like the taste of a coward like you

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own belifs

Blackmailer

The architect of my own living death
Overseer of a slow and a bitter decay
Rotten inside but I just did not see
Until the day when you blackmailed me

You stole the rest of the world from me
You held me to ransom with my own belifs

Blackmailer



3. Smile Back At Death

Blessed father what is that the gods will for me
Is it their will that I should do this dute alone
I am a slave and what difference can I possibly make
When all I do is what I must so I don't die this day

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
so the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show than blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

In eternity echoes what we do in life
With honor and strength I must keep this truth alive
Now its time for justice see the emperor defied
The last wish of dying man
To pursue what is right

Home
Let me go home

When death smiles at you
so the father said
There's nothing left to do
Smile back at the death

I will show than blood
They will chant my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance done

They just don't know they are conquered
They continue to fight
Would we be any different
Wouldn't we bark and bite

For all that we hold dear
For your families and our life
Like each breath is our last
As we fight not to die

In this arena
I who will not die won't salute you
In this life or the next
My vengeance I will have

You turned me into a warrior slave
You made me kill than all
But as time goes you will see
It is just one more kill
Then it's done



4. While You Were Gone

I did not see I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold I was as stone
Here on my own while you were gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
These are the things I realise
While you were gone

Something is wrong inside my brain
And they my eyes start to complain
Times slows right down
My days drag on
Don't want to live when you are gone

Because you are my beating heart
You are the reason why I breathe
These are the things I realise
While you were gone

I did not see I did not hear
I did not feel while you were gone
My blood was cold I was as stone
Here on my own while you were gone



5. Samurai

I am absolutely now prepared to pay the price
Even if I ultimately pay with my own life
Ready to give everything to sacrifite it all
And without the will to die I know that I cant win

No mind, no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
I the valley of the death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Deep within myself is a decision that I've made
To win and overwhelm those who would want to bury me
To never ever yield and even with my own last breath
To remain defiant never to admit defeat

No mind, no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
I the valley of the death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Like a Samurai

No mind, no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
I the valley of the death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai



6. A Crack in The System

We don't belong we have no home
We see no boundaries in this divided world
Where we have no certainy

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system

Our DNA
And finger prints
And numbers data they feed
Into their machines
They're eating all our dreams

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system

I belive we are all so much more than they can see
Than just a game of words and codes
They send us back and forth and round and round we go
But deep inside we are are never moving at all

They question our existence
Our right to live and breath

The questions without answers
The answers without questions
A catch 22 system
We are trapped down inside

A crack in the system



7. Robot

Robot slave with silent rage
Growing inside of me
My first word is no
And so my birth now they will see

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

Free they say I'm free
If I conform and I comply
I am only free to be
Just want they decide

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am



8. At The End Of The Day

I made a rod
It was for my own back
At the time I could not see it
But now it is clear

I rattle my brain for words
That I thought I knew as certainly
As my own name
But they are disappeared

What does it mean
Does it mean anything
What does it mean
At the end of the day

What words were they
And how careless and arrogant was I
To think I owned them
Without giving them the respect
of being born onto a page
Gently by my own pen
Where they would stay
And live again and again and again

What was it for
Was it for anything
What does it mean
At the end of the day

What does it mean
Does it mean anything
What does it mean
At the end of the day

You live where you lived
You sit where you sat
Nothing seems to have changed
At the end of the day



9. Waiting For My Life To Begin

I wake up to a grinding day
In a grinding week
In a grinding month
In a grinding year
Grinding away

The daily grind is grinding me
I just go to work
Then I go back home
And try to sleep
And I go to work again

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to belive in

My day dream it is just so real
There I am on stage
Singing in my band
For some crazy fans
I'm as tough as steel

And that is what I thought was real
Its amazing how
You can fool yourself
And believe this things
When you dread each day

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to believe in

Grinding on through restless sleep
Where my mind repeats repeats
Grinding on and on and on
Where has my precious life time gone

Grindind away
Grinding all my life away
Grindind away
I must start my life today

I'm waiting for my life to begin
Waiting for something to believe in



10. Voices From The Past

Never start a fight you cannot win
You'll be in a war that never ends
Making promises you cannot keep
Living with regrets that make you weep

Weeping I have tried to close the door
On the very past where I was born
Shutting out the past so I survive
But now I hear something in my mind

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing voices
Voices call me back

If I don't face the problems that I have
I know that they will just keep coming back
Even thought I know that is the truth
Still deny that I could ever choose

Voices from the past
Voices call me back
Voices in my head
Voices of the dead

Now I'm hearing voices
Voices from the past
Now I'm hearing voices
Voices call me back



11. The Truth is One

Walking down at the path of your life conditions
Facing up to everyday's contradictions
To find the inner quiet source of your bliss
All you need to know is there

Assume the legacy of the few who dared
And don't you be afraid
Embrace the pain
Unlock the power
Accept nature living in you

The truth is one the answer is there
The truth is you the truth is me
Eternity is now forever is today
The truth is you the truth is me

The truth is one

Forget the promisses
The fear of milions
The cause of their own future self extinction
Listen to the voice of your own conviction
Dance to ou true inner voice

Let the flame of true will burn
Adn feel how life force takes control
Just when you thought no one would find you
The whole world shall surrond you

Eternity is now
Forever is today

The truth is one the answer is there
The truth is you the truth is me
Eternity is now forever is today
The truth is you the truth is me

The truth is one



12. Serpent Hearted Man

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really write after all
Your light is really darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

Reborn through the power of every new day
Not overwhelmed by the shadows of yesterday
In the eternal today I live
The ways of the universe manifest in my being

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really write after all
Your light is really darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

They joy of the past and the sorrow of yesterday
Are now left behind with the old shedded skin
Fragmented and laying now in dead ground
For I accept and face then whatever today may bring

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really write after all
Your light is really darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

Three cycles of life now flow inside of you
The human the animal the spiritual man
And now in accord with all of natures way
The tracks of this serpent are now there for you to begin

Right was really wrong
Wrong was really write after all
Your light is really darkness
My darkness is real light
Guiding the path of this serpent hearted man

11. Comfortable In Darkness




1. Watching The Night Sky

I only regret chances I did not take
And decisions that I waited too long to make
There comes a time when you just realise
Who and what really matters to you in this life
Always connected but so far away
The suffering and passion that we have each day
Feeling the pain of the absence of you
Each night we look up at the same sky
Watching the night sky

However far I am away from you now
I swear that there is nothing that I won't get through
Stars in the night sky can guide us both home
To our hope and our truth and to where we belong
Always connected but so far away
The suffering and passion that we have each day
Feeling the pain of the absence of you
Each night we look up at the same sky
Watching the night sky

Always connected but so far away
The suffering and passion that we have each day
Feeling the pain of the absence of you
Each night we look up at the same sky
Watching the night sky



2. Madness And Sorrow

Through madness and sorrow
Walking hell for a mile
I vow to myself
I'll always look back and smile
When inside I'm burning
This can always be said
Here and now I stand with my
Head held high 'til I'm dead
I won't
Take
More
Madness and Sorrow

Back to the wall
Feeling hell in my head
Holding a hand
Of the devil's own deck
Deal back the cards
And now I'll take my turn
Throw back three sixes and watch the world burn

There's a malignant feeling
That's born in my head
With all this black inertia
Could we be seen as dead
Through the storms and the battles
Of my life I have found
My primal born instinct is never to
be held down
I won't
Take
More
Madness and Sorrow

Back to the wall
Feeling hell in my head
Holding a hand
Of the devil's own deck
Deal back the cards
And now I'll take my turn
Throw back three sixes and watch the world burn



3. 1633

What is the reason God blessed me with sight?
And shows me these signs in the sky
Where my observations are now leading me
I am just so afraid to describe
My certainty
The centre of the universe is the earth
The Holy Father has decreed
But I believe this heliocentric truth
Will they burn me for what I believe?

In holy flame be purified
In holy flame

How can all this be offensive to God?
Who created all that I see
How can I deny what I know to be real?
Will they burn me for what I believe?
In holy flame be purified

Injuring the holy faith with my blasphemy
I will face torment, and I will taste pain
I will be purified in holy flames
I pray for my salvation
Offending the Holy Church with my heresy
Before this court and before Holy God
I beg for mercy please forgive my sin
I pray for salvation
This fact cannot be disputed
The centre of all creation is here
No debating and no discovery
Pray for my salvation
I abjure curse and detest all my errors
They are contrary to the Holy Scriptures
I recant for everything I have said
Pray for my salvation

And so we turn
And so we turn
Turning in a circle in a circle round the sun



4. God Of Speed

Twisting the grip of the beast you've created
Alive in the seconds that you burn away
You taste the fear and you're feeling the danger
Danger inside that you know is the spice of your life
25 years you have dreamt of a moment
A moment that puts you in this place on earth
Heroes make legends on this holy ground
To race against legends you traveled halfway round the world
Your face in the wind
You give this offering
To the god of speed
This is what you need

To live your life
Living your lifetime
When you ride
You're living your life
You live your life
Living your lifetime
When you ride
You live your life in the wind

All of your life you thought that you'd do something
Do something big and not just fade away
You are too old, your machine is outdated
You won't let that stop you following through on your dream
Your face in the wind
You give this offering
To the god of speed

This is what you need
To live your life
Living your lifetime
When you ride
You're living your life
You live your life
Living your lifetime
When you ride
You live your life in the wind

Living each day like it could be your last
You regret nothing, it's all in the past
You just don't know if tomorrow will come
So everything you want to do you get done
You make no excuse or try to justify
Anything that you have done in your life
Living more in five minutes when you ride
Than some people do in the whole of their life

Living your lifetime
When you ride
You're living your life
You live your life
Living your lifetime
When you ride
You live your life in the wind



5. City Of Bones

The flood of death all around
But from your soul is the sound
The sound of defiance and pride
To prove your spirit's alive
The seventh symphony calls
To beyond city walls
Surrounded for 900 days
But you will never give way

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life

Frozen so hard is the ground
The fallen lay all around
A great patriotic war
Starvation taking you all
Eat anything to survive
Because you refuse to die
Dying and dead everywhere
But you refuse to dispair

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life

Don't take a single step back
While you are under attack
You stand against tyranny
With just your humanity
You stand, your backs to the wall
Forsaken ready to fall
You won't surrender your pride
Your pride is holding the line

You fight
You stand and fight
Fight for your life
Stand and fight, stand and fight, for your life



6. Faceless

Can you spend your life, a man that no-one ever hates?
Can you just fit in with everything, another face?
Never challenging or disturbing the status quo
You try to fit in and you just keep your status low

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

You just accept that where you are is where you'll always be
Always being, there's a madness of its own you see
In quiet desperation you live, no-one ever knows
The suffering you bear so you can be a tortured soul

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame

Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates

When you are not there you wonder what it is they say
They despise your unobtrusive humble, subtle ways
From contempt to loathing into hatred it's too late
By trying to fit in you failed to be a man that no-one hates

If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
If you think you're losing
You have lost it all
If you think you're beaten
You will be beaten down
Why do you try to be a man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame
Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates

Oh oh oh oh
No-one knows your name
A faceless man
Just yourself to blame
Oh oh oh oh
You're suffering again
A faceless man
A man that no-one hates



7. Time To Dare

Something is happening that I can't explain
I can feel myself changing but I don't know why
Something familiar that I've never seen
A confusing sensation inside

Beneath the human kingdom
From the realm of dreams
What does it mean?

Dangerous messengers start to appear
They are threatening everything I think I have
Threatening destruction of the world I made
With desire to know my true self

Beneath the human kingdom
From the realm of dreams
What does it mean?

Time to dare
Face the end of all that I thought I was
Face the change
Signs of the mystery living in me

Time to dare
Face the end of all that I thought I was
Face the change
A long asleep giants slowly awakes in me

Dreams
Night after night I wonder what they mean
Night after night I wonder what I'm seeing
Night after night there's something haunting me

Terror
Now in daylight
The terror I now see is real
Terror
The terror of leaving all that I know behind
The promise and terror of everything is revealed
The terror of leaving all that I know

Face the change
A long asleep giants slowly awakes in me



8. Surrounded By Sadness

Forsaking every other thing
Leaving uncertainties behind
From the loneliness and the dark
I came into your light
No more sadness surrounding me

My heart is beating its last beat
As I am breathing my last breath
For what I could not live without
Has gone and will not come again
Surrounded by sadness



9. The Trace Of Things That Have No Words


Nothing can numb this pain, nothing can fill this void
Nothing can heal this wound, nothing can hide this scar
Nothing is what I have, nothing is all that's left
Nothing is what I am, if I am without you
Looking down at my feet, why do they move at all?
Looking down at my hands, why do they work at all?
I hear the words I speak, why can I speak at all?
If I can't speak to you, why can I speak at all?

I won't give up this pain, the pain of what I lost
I don't want to be healed, why do they even try?
Pain is all I have left to tell me this was real
Pain is the only thing left I can feel

My scars I show you know, my scars
They prove my life was real, my scars
Here on my face, here on my arms
Lines from a play, you were the star
You see them now, you see my truth
The way I lived, I lived for you
These scars proved my life was real

Now you can see my face, now you can hear my words
Now can you understand how I traced out my world?
Why must I face this life? Why am I here alone?
Where did the future go? Why am I here alone?

My scars I show you know, my scars
They prove my life was real, my scars
Here on my face, here on my arms
Lines from a play, you were the star
You see them now, you see my truth
The way I lived, I lived for you
These scars proved my life was real



10. Letting Go Of The World

Everything I love has been taken
I wonder what reason I have to live
Desperately I have searched for a meaning
Is it now time for me to let go of the world
Letting go of the world

The future that I began to believe in
Seemed so certain, I thought it was mine
That was where and how I would be living
A complete human being with a soul
That was only a dream in a nightmare
And the nightmare is where I now live
Empty life, empty hours without meaning
Hours of madness that make me let go of the world
Letting go of the world

The revelation of my transformation
Is both a shock and a comfort to me
Leaving behind their conventional wisdom
Their rules that govern the way I should be
The narcissist and the father believing
That they should be worshipped and obeyed
By the lost overwhelmed and bewildered
But for me it is time to let go of the world
Letting go of the world

Why should I live by rules that I did not make?
So that people I don't know will accept me
I don't care who they are, I don't care
These hypocrites preaching all of this nonsense
Reject me, they don't know who or what I am
I don't care who they are, I don't care

Fight, kill, fuck eat, fight, kill, fuck eat
I just don't care who they are
Fight, kill, fuck eat, fight, kill, fuck eat
I just don't care who they are

Letting go of the world
Letting go of the world

Letting go of the world
Letting go of the world
Letting go of the world
Letting go of the world



11. Comfortable In Darkness

I let go of the world
I let go of the light
Then I fell towards memories of the dead
To the blackness I fell
I was lost, I was scared
And alone with the memories of the dead

Every single step I fear to take
No light at all and no end in sight
I must find my way
I must find my way

Now that I'm living here
And there's nowhere to go
Speaking to me are memories of the dead
How to cope and endure
And survive all of this
I must listen to memories of the dead

And if that's true, is all of this in my head?
If it is I can choose
What I think, what I feel
These things I fear are only real in my head
Now I found the choices I can take
I choose to rule my fear and not to break
I will master my own darkness

There is no step that I now fear to take
The world within me, is mine to create
My fate is in my own hands
Now I understand

How it can be, how I can see, how I can find a way
To be comfortable in darkness
To be comfortable in darkness

Victory of myself, by myself over me
To be comfortable in darkness
In darkness

1. The King Of Metal

They trample the weakrun from the strongsmile as they laugh at my song
Sociopathic thieves no sentiment or conscienceit isn't personal it's business with a vengeancedescribing my life as an inferior a tax lossand they are stealing everything you try to give me.butYou are The King
They have no respectcondescendingbastards that don't know a thing
They want me looking like model that's a smack headnot really caring O.D. vomit or a shotgunit's a fact that sales always increase after deathfor parasitical self righteous business rodentsbutyou are The Kingof Metal



2. Dimebag

I feel a diamond shinesomewhere in my mindwhen I hear the sound shine
The 8th of December in 2004the wicked tragedy and horror that would shock us all there was a diamond shiningshining so bright out there a bright and shining star of Texasshining everywhere
Silent insane and evilthoughts stolen from his mindhe has come to destroy Dimebag where he plays and shinesthe Alrosa villaColumbus OhioDamageplan are rocking out doing their metal showup to the stage he's walkingthe gun is in his handhe starts shooting and wont stop until he's taken downfrom behind the madman a single shot gun blastends the madness but the horror of that night still lasts
Dimebag is shot four timesand three more lost their livesand seven wounded by the evilin that twisted mindFifteen shots are firedthirty five to gothe courage and the carnageof that night in Ohio
We are broken nowwe are broken downthough you diedyou will always be alive here in methough you died
i feel a diamond shinesome where in my mindwhen I hear the sound shine



3. Black Country

Back from Vilnius and back from Rome back from Z7 my second home back from Yukon and De RotsBack from Brazil but the boys are gone
smell of burning metal I know so well pipes of Paul are loud as hell riding hard and riding longto get back where I feel strong
I'm back in the Black Country
Sometimes when you're desperate, you can push too hardyou can keep on pushing until it all falls apartyou see your dream is dying it can break your metal heartthe father of the unborn girl was dead
Back to work in the factory might break my back but it won't break me got to pay for flights that I did not take to a place I've never been again
smell of burning metal I know so well pipes of Paul are loud as hell riding hard and riding longto get back where I feel strong
I'm back in the Black Country
Sometimes when you're desperate, you can push too hardyou can keep on pushing until it all falls apartyou see your dream is dying it can break your metal heartthe father of the unborn girl was dead
but they brought him back to life again in the Black Countryin the Black Country
I'm back in the Black Country



4. The Rainbow Fades To Black

Gather the light blinded by their lies you'll see again it's never the end time to begin find the power that is deep within your heart of steel
Do you believethey will share with you a pot of goldit's just a controlthey cannot ruleif you do not hunger for those things that you don't need
They will tell us what we need to make us hunger for their liesSo we think we have to eat their shit and live without our prideThe words and pictures that define me as a man are in my mind no one but me can give away the freedom that I've earned it's mineWithout pain There can be no strength no way to growNo way to own your own soulThen the rainbow fades to blackand it's never coming backthe rainbow fades to black



5. Fate

I don't believe in a fatethat I can't escape I know my future is whatI work to createyou think that you can't change a thing in your lifeis that what they made you think is true you let them decide how and when you will dieand that's what will become true for you
Twist your fate
I will give everything nowand I will not waitI will not make an excuse to avoid the painyour will and your courage are all that you needto start living the life that you wantHow much do you want it, how much do you need it,how important is it to you
Twist your fate



6. One More Step

I'm standing up and going past the pointthat I thought was the furthest I could goyou never know how tough you areuntil your life is hard and that is when you knowthat is when you know that there are some things that you fight for and some things you leave behindlife will hit you hard and knock down and keep you thereall that you can do is Just take one more stepI'm screaming in my headJust take one more step
I tried to avoid falling downA broken hearted man I fell down any wayThat is when I learned it's not the falling down that counts what counts is getting up again.When you get up it might seem like a thousand steps to takewill impossibleJust focus on this single step forget about the rest of themall that you do isJust take one more stepI'm screaming in my headJust take one more step
Don't count me out because I'm down and you see me on the floorI've been here before It's do or do not do or die I've got to get back home to youThats all I want to doSometimes my emotions get the best of meand then I feel just like I can't go onBut not I'm dead until I'm dead and I am screaming in my headPick yourself back up againand just take one more step



7. Fighter

I'm here to fight for my lifeFor my beliefs fight for my truthGet up again after each fallI won't surrender I won't give inGoing through hell keep going onKeep moving forward to find my homeEach single day I will push onI won't let this break me no turning back.
Don't need to eat don't need to sleepI won't back down I won't retreatThis day is mine, and I won't be bullied or beaten, Say what you want I won't change my mindI've paid my dues this is my rightIt was mine once now here I am to take it back.
Say to yourselfYou are a fighter Fighting on and on against all the oddsStanding on your own against the worldYou are a fighterFighting for your lifeNever giving inWhatever it takes you must survive.Get upGet up one more time
Get up just one more time than you fallThey think you can't winThey are not perfect and they are not GodTry to believe that you can survive thisWant it as much as you want to breathDefy everyone who writes you offSay to yourself I am a fighterand get up on more time.



8. Judge Me

I've made some bad choices I have failed more than onceI have taken chances even when they did not comeI was here at the beginning I will be here at the end when I got strong I got lucky till my strength ran out again.with your values of fear and deceityour self important impotent way of life decrees that every one should worship youdown on bended knees I have risen up from the ashes of my own defeatmy family my friends and my fans were calling meIt seemed like a voice from a half remembered forgotten dreamI thought it was over, but over's not what it seems Your hedonistic head on a stick is what I would pay real money to see on live TVWith some friends from Texas would laugh with meat you the pale and impaled
You haven't faced what I've facedYou haven't fought what I've foughtYou haven't been on the floor and tried to come back for moreYou haven't lost what I've lostYou haven't won what I've wonYou haven't been where I've beenYou haven't done what I've done
unless you lived how I livedunless you did what I didyou think you know who I am just by looking at meYou judge me


9. Difficult

It's madness to continue thats what they're telling youbecause they want it easy this thing that they can't doThat don't mean you can't do it coz it's too tough for themIt's difficult not easy beginning at the endYou have your doubts your fears you don't know what to doThe only thing that's easy is to feel confusedin all of this confusion try to find your own voiceIt's somewhere deep within you saying you have a choiceIt's time to let yourself believe This life is yoursI lost my way I admit thatI thought the path was clear but now I see it was clearly the wrong path for meI could not face or see the truth so I planned the end of the endNo one can blame you if you've had those same thoughts tooJust give me this song to sayI've found reason a way to want to live againAs arrogant as it sounds you know me and I have to sayIf life changed for me then life might change for youWhen you don't feel any closer to where you want to beI know that it is difficult if you believethis life is your life for you to live and make your ownIt's time to let yourself believe this life is yours



10. Beginning

This is the beginningdon't wake up, just listenBe here in this moment with meThis is the beginning you seekThis is moment we spoke ofThe moment where you would begin
Why have you been smothered and suffocatedby black emotions of this nightmare seasea of doubt storm of self pityThe darkness makes you think you're blindThinking that you're blind, you can't see the truthThat you're not blind only smothered and lostYou can't walk you can't speak. This situation is not without choice, you can choose to know this darkness can't hold youdarkness can't kill you, If you don't allow this darkness to exist

1. Russian Holiday nach oben

After every late night, there is an early start
Some of the roads aren't roads
And all the seats are hard
Sixteen men are boys, we laugh about these things
I don't want to understand my Russian holiday

Saint Petersburg is overnight and we sleep on the train
And I am Harry Palmer from a film with Michael Caine
Tinker tailor soldier spy and someone disappeared
And now he's back again on my Russian holiday

Another crazy show, and there's no JD on the stage
Today they watched and waited
Outside in the freezing rain
Have you got a line I heard an old man say
No we don't have that here, on my Russian holiday

Who can tell me now, will I ever see home again
I would give my life if I could see your face now
Who can tell me now, will I ever see home again
I would give my life if I could see your face now
If I could see your face

I'm feeling so down, but I don't get worse
So that is a good thing in the Russian world
They go by their hearts, and not on their feet
They are as tough as anyone can be
On my Russian holiday

Who can tell me now, will I ever see home again
I would give my life if I could see your face now
Who can tell me now, will I ever see home again
I would give my life if I could see your face now
If I could see your face

17. The Clansman nach oben

Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be free and a race
That is part of a clan
And to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel
Just to be free It is right to believe
In the need to be free
It's a time when you die
And without asking why
Can't you see what they do
They are grinding us down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman...Freedom It's a time wrough with fear
It's a land wrough with change
Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains And I know what I want
When is timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never
Be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
And we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns
Will be born free And I know what I want
When is timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman... Freedom No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We've the land of the free
Freedom It's a time wrough with fear
It's a land wrough with change
Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains And I know what I want
When is timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman... Freedom



23. Tough As Steel nach oben

Beneath your calm, behind your smile,
You hide away your lies,
Intimidating, Manipulating,
The truth is in your eyes. My days and nights get longer,
Winding on and on.
Love lost hours make us hard.
You are power mad,
I think that's sad,
Real powers in our hearts. We live our way,
Not how you say.
Our blood, our sweat,
We have no regrets. Tough as steel,
Never show the pain we feel,
Because we were tough as steel. Every hour we are stronger.
Inside us grows the rage.
We cannot remain immune.
To win you must kill.
You'll never break our will.
Our aim for glory is true. We live our way,
Not how you say.
Our blood, our sweat,
We have no regrets. Tough as steel,
Never show the pain we feel,
Because we were tough as steel.



25. Living Someone Else's Life nach oben


As I lay down and close my eyes
I start to feel that there is something wrong
Now i just don't feel myself
This is not where I belong Questioning my mental health,
I find I live a life that's not mine Living someone else's life
I'm living someone else's life
I see through someone else's eyes
Living someone else's life
I'm living someone else's life
I live in someone else's time I am confused and I am lost
My existence I just can't define
There is a world beyond this world
I live a life that is not mine This is not my life



26. The Day I Fell To Earth nach oben

I thought I stood on solid ground
but I was floating near the stars
And never once did I look down
I was falling down and how far To a place I can't even say my name
I'm the alien the drifter I'm to blame The day I fell to earth I fell to earth thought I was dead
but I was bruised and I was scared
I took the time to look around
I started climbing and how far To a place where I am shouting out my name
I'm the alien the drifter I'm to blame The Day I fell to earth



27. Motherfuckers R Us nach oben

Wake up on my own and I wonder where I am
My mind begins to clear and I begin to understand
Today I am in Phoenix and I'm feeling pretty low
Would like to skip the afternoon and get right to the show Cause I live to rock
Rock all night
Just don`t care
What`s wrong or right
Living loud
Living free
You and me
The mad motherfuckers I`ve been rolling I`ve been moving all night long
I`ve been to so many places I don`t know where I belong
I`d like to say this one thing and it's in my only fans
Right here, right now it`s the only place that I can make some sense Cause I live to rock
Rock all night
Just don`t care
What`s wrong or right
Living loud
Living free
You and me
The mad motherfuckers It looks like motherfuckers r us tonight Right over here
We`ve got the crazy motherFuckers
Right over there
We`ve got the wild motherfuckers
Right over here
We`ve got the insane motherfuckers!!!! Yeah!!! And we live to rock
Rock all night
Just don`t care
What`s wrong or right
Living loud
Living free
You and me
The mad motherfuckers



28. Wonderful Life nach oben

Will I ever get through this?
Blinded by the smoke and mist
You're feeling miles away
All my brother's in arms are nowhere to be seen
Go for my gun, stand up and run
Aim for the kill, firing at will
Just keep moving on
Don't turn away, don't run away
Fight all the tears, face all you're fears
Feeling I belong
It looks just just like a photograph
All the lights on the hill are all glistening and proud
All alone i wipe the sweat off my brow
I've never felt so alive
Wonderful life
And with every breath I take
waiting for their first mistake
I clench my loaded gun
Peering down on them all I start closing in
Feeling the hate, longer I wait
Soaked by the rain, waiting to gain
Just keep moving on
Now is the time, end of the line
No holding back, time to attack
Im feeling so alive
It looks just just like the photograph
All the lights on the hill are all glistening and proud
All alone i wipe the sweat off my brow
I've never felt so alive
Wonderful life



29. Hatred nach oben

mascerading as a man
now your mask is gone
every one can see you now
see just what you are
your pride was bruised like your face
im dissapointed
in you and your childish ways
your rock and roll playground you dont deserve this
you dont deserve this life
this lie
leave me alone
i told you look in my eyes you will see
all of my hatred
look in my eyes you will see
you and your weakness
you walked in your dream and you
were the centre
everything revolving round
you in your illusion you dont deserve this
you dont deserve this life
this lie
leave me alone
i told you



30. Eating Children nach oben

looking further than they see
listening to the gallaxy
the kepler eye has found their dream gravity of gravity
natures true reality
the birth of the death of their birth
to dust return they are chosen by those before them
human seeds of the chosen ones
flickering to a super nova silent saviour
death gives birth eating children one by one
children of the yellow sun black collapse of an iron core
consuming life shadows and all
horizon of that dark unknown
is for the chosen ones alone dust to dust they are chosen by those before them
human seeds of the chosen ones
flickering to a super nova silent saviour from
death gives birth eating children one by one
children of the yellow sun hydrogen fusion of 4 protons
helium giant red hell has come
eating children one by one
children of the yellow sun
now the chosen ones are gone

1. Infinite Entanglement nach oben

In 1932 Einstein and Bohr can't be reconciled
It was a war of ideas that will rage until they will both die
The quantum and classic theories will not align for 30 years
And even it's difficult to believe in the new truth is real
Nothing exists until it is observed

Can consciousness be transferred will brewer
prove that it can be done
Not reliant on breathing or the body
with which you were born
Nothing exists until it is observed

March
Marching on through the fields of dead
Stretching across the whole universe
Connections of all that can be to infinity
Now
Now you are facing certain death
The questions go round in your head
Do choices you make mean a thing
How will you die

Infinite Entanglement



2. A Thousand Years nach oben

Tough times never last though people always do
And so being tough is something you will have to choose
Choose to abandon the fear of your own death
Accept a future you can hold in own your hand
You will be the first to find the edge of what is possible
For a man

I will live for a thousand years
I will live for a thousand years
No more will I be ruled by fear
I will live for a thousand years

Removing all your fear of mortality
A million precious moments can survive eternally
With a mind that will endure and overcome
Ten hundreds lifetimes become your to live as one
You will be the first to find the edge of what is possible
For a man

I will live for a thousand years
I will live for a thousand years
No more will I be ruled by fear
I will live for a thousand years



3. Human nach oben

One look is all it takes you to decide what I am
Without hearing a single word I speak
You think you know everything about me who I am
The mutant joke, the tinman, the crazy freak

Human
Am I human
I am man I am machine
You just don't know what it means
To be human

You just don't know how it feels to question all that is real
Am I machine or am I flesh and blood
Blood and electrons they are just the same inside me
Which one of them is not sustaining me

Human
Am I human
I am man I am machine
You just don't know what it means
To be human

Human
Am I human
I am man I am machine
You just don't know what it means
I am man I am machine
I accept now what is me
I am human
I am human
I am me



4. What Will Come nach oben

The first day comes and Iíve lost sight of my home
I start to wonder if it is still here
As I sit here with my back to the sun
Waiting for the solar flames to come

Two more days Ďtil the light speed

The third day comes and I am hoping now
I wonít face all these years alone
I think of her and I start to question
What this mission really means for me

What will come will come
Without my permission or my choosing
You just canít be sure of anything at all
Except uncertainty

Another day Ďtil light speed

The 5th day comes
Waking from my first deep sleep
Everything seems sharper and more real
I feel it grow soon it will light up my wings
The coronal mass ejection here

What will come will come
Without my permission or my choosing
You just canít be sure of anything at all
Except uncertainty

This is my life, thereís no waking up all of
This is real
You can take it all
All thatís left behind is the dust we are
Made from

What will come will come
Without my permission or my choosing
You just canít be sure of anything at all
Except uncertainty
This is my whole life
Thereís no waking up all of this is real
You can take it all
All thatís left behind is the dust we are
Made from

What will come will come
And it will come
What will come will come
And it will come

And now I fly at light speed



5. Stars Are Burning nach oben

Faced with the truth that theyíre all out to get me
I donít know if I can survive
Can I hold my own when all that is left of me
Is what I can hold in my mind

I donít waste time feeling sorry for myself
Now I have put all that behind
Itís never easy and itís never fair
Iím determined they wonít win this time

Stars are burning
Burning pure and bright
Stars are burning
Burning in your eyes
Burning all your life
Burning you alive

Everything is changing all of the time
And there is so much beyond my control
Iíll make my own life Iíll make it mean something
Even on my own

Massive and permanent theyíre magnificent
Burning in the eternal night
Now feel them moving creating destroying
And know everything is alive

Stars are burning
Burning pure and bright
Stars are burning
Burning in your eyes
Burning all your life
Burning you alive



6. Solar Wind nach oben

Eagle spirit guide this life for me and all those of my kind
Let me see the harmony of you living here within me
Gone is circle of life now spiral out from me unwind
Be the first and only truth to all those that question you

Sailing on the solar wind with golden wings alight
Sailing on the solar wind the dream has come to life

Squandered on selfish pursuit of all their self-destructive tools
The gift that you so freely gave without judgment without blame
All of the conquistadors have found a time to be reborn
All decrepit and corrupt is theyíre rebirth the death of us

Sailing on the solar wind with golden wings alight
Sailing on the solar wind the dream has come to life

Eagle guide me through this life
Eagle guide me through this night

The dream has come to life



7. The Dreams Of William Black nach oben

(instrumental)



8. Calling You Home nach oben

Iíve lost my way I donít know who I am
After all taken there is not much left of me
Iíve seen their face hard just like the stone
And I can be as fast as light but they wonít let me go home

I never sleep I never feel awake
And nothing seems to ease this pain thereís too much time alone
They can make you feel like you just canít win
There are too many days and thereís too much time alone to thing

Can you hear me in the endless night alone
Iím calling
Iím calling you home

You sense this thing that they canít control
Can liberty be dreaming of your ghost and of your soul
They donít know you they donít know your mind
They try to bind your hands and feet with rope
They make from lies

Can you hear me in the endless night alone
Iím calling
Iím calling you home

I fly through space with the weapons of my time
I canít go back and now I donít want to try
I feel a billion souls surround me in this night
I have become their pain I have become their voice

Iím calling
Iím calling you home
Can you hear me in the endless night alone
Iím calling
Iím calling you home
Can you hear me
Iím calling you home
Can you hear me in the endless night alone
Iím calling
Iím calling you home



9. Dark Energy 256 nach oben

I canít feel my skin and everything looks different now
As though I see through eyes that are not mine
All my scars are gone and now donít ache and I donít bleed
What are these dreams that come of death and cold and blood

The broken back of brotherhood do what youíve always done
Get what you have always got and lie to everyone
As small as they make you feel they will never be that big
Rejoicing in the death of every one that have ever lived
Dark Energy

Is something else controlling me now I am scared to sleep
In the fear of memories that dreams may bring
The realization of my transferred consciousness
I am unshackled from my own mortality

The broken back of brotherhood do what youíve always done
Get what you have always got and lie to everyone
As small as they make you feel they will never be that big
Rejoicing in the death of every one that have ever lived
Dark Energy



10. Independence nach oben

Itís hard to beat someone with nothing left to lose
Itís hard to beat someone fighting to preserve their way of life
And if they beat me down then I will rise again
Now I refuse to die I will be defiant till the end

So here I stand alone with nothing left to lose
And all the storms of life will now stop me
Taking my revenge

Everything I took for granted appears to be gone
In the mirror I see someone, I donít recognize
Where are the answers that I once believed I knew
And now in this place I stand alone

Independence

My face appears in a nightmare that now become real
I dread my walking hours because of what I may find
You took the role of deceiver and you played it well
And now in this place I stand alone

Independence

From them all
See the fall

Itís hard to beat someone fighting to preserve their way of life
And if they beat me down then I will rise again
Now I refuse to die I will be defiant till the end
So here I stand alone with nothing left to lose
And all the storms of life will now stop me
Taking

Independence

From them all
See the fall
Rise again live without fear



11. A Work Of Anger nach oben

Where are you
You said my truth must be this
Decided dictated for me be you
Iím denied I am cold this ghost whispers loud
From a shadow in the ruin of a mind on his own

Where are you
You said in space between space
There will be an answer waiting for me
Will I know itís from you there are no words or sounds
From the shadow should I whisper prayers I donít believe

Can you see the future from where you are now
Can you see the truth of what youíve done to me
Remembering the mornings and each dawn of shame
The rising sun did not shine our sins away

Here I am
Here I am
Here I am where are you
The force guiding the stars you and me too
What is life what is man do you think you can choose
Beyond words beyond thought Iím connected to you

Here I am
Here I am
Your work of anger
Here I am

01. Endure And Survive

Brewer;:
Shall we begin?

Pembridge demands and expects you to let go
of everything you have lived for
He plans to obliterate any trace of your existence
make you disappear
So you are faced with the fight of your life
Itís a fight that you canít let them win

By sheer force of will
Get back on your feet
Stand up you're not dead
Endure and survive

Will you die alone on this ship out here in space
or will you find a way to live
Can you defend yourself against the madness
you fear will take over your mind
Will you give in to the thoughts of defeat and despair
that try to overwhelm you

By sheer force of will
Get back on your feet
Stand up you're not dead
Endure and survive

Pembridge:
The new world is waiting for the chosen ones.
When the under-mission tasks are complete,
William Black will no longer be required.
He must never touch that new Eden.
In that place my genetically perfect human beings will thrive.
All indigenous threats will be eliminated
and our chosen few will hold dominion over that world.

By sheer force of will
Get back on your feet
Stand up you're not dead
Endure and survive



02. Escape Velocity

At twenty five thousand miles an hour youíre lighting up the sky
Hypersonic breakout from your last and future life
Relativistic calculations distance time and speed,
a conscious and ballistic object,
can you reach escape velocity

I will fly my hands become my wings
I will fly and rise upon the wind
I will fly into the great unknown
I will fly and I will find a place I can call home

Like the spear of Odin aiming at that unknown place
A certainty of purpose makes you think you can escape
Escape the ruthless narcissist you know you will become
Traveling faster than your thoughts,
can you reach escape velocity

I will fly my hands become my wings
I will fly and rise upon the wind
I will fly into the great unknown
I will fly and I will find a place I can call home

Leviticus reimagined and rewritten and renamed
Restored to full itsí potency restored to itsí full rage
Genetic immunity from the weapons in your hands
Weapons for new ritual sacrifice to cleanse a land

I will fly my hands become my wings
I will fly and rise upon the wind
I will fly into the great unknown
I will fly and I will find a place I can call home

At twenty five thousand miles an hour youíre lighting up the sky



03. Blood

Illusions of freedom of hope and redemption
Seduce the vain, the weak
and the well intentioned
Accepting the praise for their own sacrifice
for these seven martyrs sainthood is their right

This is the vile bloody manifestation
of Brewerís anger of her own creation
Obedient to commands inside the dream
The truth of the under-mission is revealed

Blood. Blood on my hands, the true joy of killing again
Everything that they said justifies everything that I did to them
I have blood

A slow mutilation they watch and they feel
It is unbelievable but it is real
Agony and surprise in equal measure,
hopeless and consumed by this moment of terror

Familiar and comforting in my control,
taking their choices and leaving them cold,
as gasping and bleeding they plead for their life,
the beautiful moment that death fills their eyes



Blood. Blood on my hands, the true joy of killing again
Everything that they said justifies everything that I did to them
I have blood. Blood on my hands
I have absolute power over them
They journey to nothing, there is no light and no god that can ever comfort them
I have blood

Pembridge:
Tell me about the dark side of black.

Laika:
His wife killed their daughter, then killed herself, while black was on a covert operation.
Then he left special forces and became a mercenary.
During the West Flanders insurrection,
he became known as the butcher of Wevelgem.
He killed babies and women and murdered whole families.
He enjoyed his work.
Then he disappeared. I found him but he thinks he found us.
He was selected before he applied.
I believe he will easily accomplish the under-mission.

Pembridge:
William Black.
Captain William Christopher Black.
It is time for the dream

Blood. Blood on my hands, the true joy of killing again
Everything that they said justifies everything that I did to them
I have blood. Blood on my hands
I have absolute power over them
They journey to nothing there is no light and no god can ever comfort them.
I have blood



04. Eating Lies

They will soon try to make me become nothing
Torn up into small pieces and torn again
and it was such a simple deception
that it made me start eating all of their lies

With a casual non-truth I believed in
they convinced me that all of my dreams were lies
Echoes of a past life that they told me
was inspired by the greed of a lonely child

They will try to take my life
I will make them eat their lies

Disgraceful, disgraced and unblemished why
Selective, blacked out memories excuse you
Every time repeating insults like a child
that will never see the world through adult eyes.

You were looking down on me with motherís pride
No decency or conscience could trouble you
You'll be choking and then you will see that
I am feeding you all of your darkest lies

They will try to take my life
I will make them eat their lies
A thousand years I have survived
My existence is denied



05. Destroyer

Pembridge:
Cleanse the ship with fire.
It must be purified before the planet is reached

I wake up and for a moment I forget
where I am and what I've done and my regrets
and the wretched liarsí promises they made
Until now I never thought that I would ever see the end

Now comes the destroyer

Now the horrors in my visions all make sense
The dreadful things I've done, the seven saints are dead
My devotion now brings me unjust reward
My execution, my extinction, could this really be the end

Now comes the destroyer
Destroyer of all that lives
Humanity broken
Destruction of all that is

Solar storms and super nova I've survived
Iíve crossed a galaxy and almost lost my mind
And here I am confronted with the vicious truth
until now I thought that they could never win is this end



06. Dawn of the Dead Son

Brewer:
Don't let go, I'm close, find me.
Hold on William. I'm here. Can you hear me. I'm close.
You are not dead yet.
This is real. This is true.
Find the Landauer limit and you will find your freedom, and you will find me.
Don't let go. Don't let go. Don't let go.

Murdered and unremembered,
a broken machine of death
cast out by those who made you
For their own wickedness
in this great universe
thereís more than they can know
or dream of or even understand

Now is the dawn of the dead son,
as darkness falls you will fight on

They put you on your knees
They couldn't make you beg
You chose to fight or die
never to yield to them
So you were burned alive
then you were left for dead
Out there in the cold of space alone

Now is the dawn of the dead son
As darkness falls you will fight on
You face the storm, you face the dark
You face your own oblivion

Now is the dawn of the dead son
As darkness falls you will shine on

Another way of phrasing Landauer's principle is that if an observer loses information about a physical system,
the observer loses the ability to extract work from that system.



07. Remember

Brewer:
Remember. Remember me. Remember us.

Was it all by chance, coincidence, accidents
or was there something guiding me, guiding us?
Sharing a point in space and time,
our light became so strong
that we were shining
Asteroids and space junk and comets are all things alone,
always moving or falling to earth
Accepting nothing without evidence
or proof except we knew
we were shining

I feel broken inside,
when I canít see the light,
when I'm torn apart when my feelings take over again

I remember someone
and a time when things were so simple and so strong
We just didn't care
because we were laughing out loud
We were laughing out loud

Protect yourself from a cynical world
You told me just ignore all the things that I don't have
Learn to be here, right now in this moment with you
and soon we would be shining

Never be afraid to let myself laugh
and to dance, everything is crazy in this world
And in this madness we won't be alone, we will find each other
Ďcause we are shining

I feel broken inside,
when I canít see the light,
when I'm torn apart when my feelings take over again

I remember someone
and a time when things were so simple and so strong
We just didn't care
because we were laughing out loud
we were laughing out loud

I feel broken inside
when I canít see the light
when Iím torn apart, when my feelings take over again
I remember someone



08. Fight Back

The vacuum of space radiation and cold
should have killed you but you just wonít let go
Determined to live to take back your life,
the darkest truth has been revealed and denied

Fight back, Fight back
Itís time to attack
They thought you were beaten, that they broke your back
They thought it was over that you would lay down
but they were wrong now youíre ready to fight back

A suffering victim that will not resist
Drowning in self-pity, that is what they think
but you won't accept your circumstances
Now you refuse to be annihilated

Fight back, Fight back
Itís time to attack
They thought you were beaten, that they broke your back
They thought it was over that you would lay down
but they were wrong now youíre ready to fight back



09. The World Is Turning the Wrong Way

The beauty and the pain of this connection comes again
to remind me I am losing my telepathy
Thought for thought and wordless knowing,
instantaneous and growing
The deep empathic state that we once shared
The bitter truth I'm forced to swallow
makes me choke on each tomorrow,
as Hamletís phantom to you I must appear

The world is turning the wrong way,
I feel this gravity
pulling you away from me
The world is turning the wrong way,
now through dead eyes I see
itís turning you away from me

They will use a blind belief to vindicate obscenity,
to justify each misery that you now must endure
Question everything that you see,
promises they give so freely
will all hide a much darker truth within
Now the importance of each moment is revealed and itís my torment
Time will slow down but will never stop for us

The world is turning the wrong way,
I feel this gravity
pulling you away from me
The world is turning the wrong way,
now through dead eyes I see
itís turning you away from me

I was eighteen days away
I was eighteen days away
from a moment that was already lost I just did not know

I was eighteen days away
I was eighteen days away
If I could go back and change one thing then I would be there now

You were in my hands
You were in my arms
Arms that were not strong enough to hold on
I didn't understand
the consequences of
the smallest choices
I always believed I would have a second chance

The world is turning the wrong way,
I feel this gravity
pulling you away from me
The world is turning the wrong way,
now through dead eyes I see
itís turning you away from me

ďthe speed of light dropped between 1928 and 1945Ē
ďour thoughts don't seem to be inside our brainsĒ
Rupert Sheldrake



10. Together We Can Move the Sun

You said it is what it is
We are where we are
We cannot unsay those words that were spoken so unselfishly
Don't leave like this, don't leave at all
I wanted to tell you once more
You made me feel I am worth something
You made it easy to believe anything is possible
All of this is real
and together we could move the sun
Together we could move the sun

No thought of the future ahead
We may or may not see
An inch from disaster, pretending that it was a mile
Don't leave like this, don't leave at all
I wanted to tell you once more
You made me feel I am worth something
You made it easy to believe anything is possible
All of this is real
and together we could move the sun
Together we could move the sun

You said just be here right now.
It's all that we can have
No future and no past, let go
of all your hopes and memories
Let your conscious mind be free
To sense where you're standing now
Itís the only way for us to stay connected through all this

You made me feel I am worth something
You made it easy to believe anything is possible
All of this is real
and together we could move the sun

Looking at you, I see myself now
Someone who can do anything better than before
Ready to believe
that together we could move the sun
Together we could move the sun

Did we live a lie? Did you live it too?
Have I lived the lie? Have you lived it too?
Did we live a lie? Did you live it too?
was it all a lie?

I said things that I hoped would become true
I said things that I hoped would change our world
All the things that I said that have hurt you
All the things that I said born of my fear

Constructing my own bitter truth
A self-fulfilling prophesy
All those lies were true
when I whispered them to you

And even with the best intentions,
looking back, they look like lies
and however much I meant them,
looking back they look like lies
All those lies were true
when I whispered them to you
All those lies were true
when I whispered them to you
All those lies were true

Pembridge:
you seem to have become quite close to the subject

Brewer:
you may have that impression because of the amount of time
I have spent with the subject, to prepare him for the procedure.

Pembridge:
you do understand what has to happen?

Brewer:
yes, I understand. Itís a disappointing end. Are you sure itís necessary?

Pembridge:
let me be clear. He must be eliminated. Every atom, every particle, every shred of DNA must be gone.
Before the ship goes into orbit around the new world, William Black must die.
