Deception, a hollow victory Raging, in murderous fury Reflection, a jester devil sent Parading, marauding malcontent PRE-CHORUS: “I march on, through the chaos of my affliction Remain strong, against inciters of sedition I stand tall, amongst agents of iniquity If I fall, I’ll rise to reclaim my destiny” CHORUS: Betrayal blind, believer of a lie The fire died, no longer can I fight An end in sight, breathing in new life The darkest night, dreaming of the light Inception, born of blackening Engaging, vehement war within Deflection, shadowing of mind Denying, echoing through time REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: MARK REPEAT CHORUS

Utopian dream or so they say The world has changed Tomorrow is today Our lives enriched, enhanced Nature obsolete Fibre optic data stream The only path we seek Strapped down, alone, the table cold I fear my fate Around me tools and cables coiled My forced “upgrade” Stripped of my will and freedom sold Skin ripped away Augmented flesh and bone Now taking shape CHORUS: So come follow me I’ll show you eternity We’ll reach for the morning sky Tomorrow is yours and mine So come follow me And live out your wildest dreams A digital life arrived A cybernetic future world, it’s time Dystopian life is here to stay Pushed too far ahead Mankind lost their way Our lives betrayed, replaced Humanity obsolete Crying tears of ohs and ones And artificial screams Cold steel and laser beams Dismember limb from limb My captors work and smile With mirthless, heartless grins A child of Frankenstein Not man and not machine Scheming sweet revenge The likes before unseen

Today the world can go to hell you say An angry life for angry times And all around conspiracies When life is out to kick you down No chance, just dance – a puppet on a string And you see your world through cold jaded eyes All the beauty and wonderment is gone There can be no joy – all darkness without light At the day’s end you know there’s something wrong CHORUS 1: The path you take is up to you Can’t you see your life is waiting Light and dark – a point of view Understand this plan is at your command Your fate in your hands or be damned Today is gonna be a perfect day A smile and goodwill all around Ignoring plain reality Won’t let the bastards bring you down You feel, unreal – gloss-over everything And you see your world through rose shaded eyes All the beauty and wonderment adorn There will be all joy – no darkness only light At the day’s end you know there’s something wrong CHORUS 2: The path you take is up to you Can’t you see your life is waiting Light and dark – a point of view Understand this plan is all in your hands The life you make is up to you And you’ll see a new world is waiting And good or bad – a point of view Understand this plan is at your command Your fate in your hands or be damned SOLO: LT / MARK / LT Today is just another normal day Where good and bad can come to anyone Dumb luck and no conspiracies No false pretense to guide my way That’s life, that’s right – I know it’s up to me And I see my world through unclouded eyes All the cruelty and wonderment unbound And the key is balance, no darkness without light At the day’s end I’ve known it all along REPEAT CHORUS 2

Oh no, the circle turns again So low, return to play pretend And so much time has gone The years have passed us by (time and time again) Still the song’s the same Believe our own true lies PRE-CHORUS: Oh, now times have changed, rearranged Become estranged (turn the pages again) And we’ll never be the same again CHORUS: When a promise is betrayed And we turn to walk away (from the life we had) A choice you’ve made And you’ve gone where I can’t follow Like the passing of the days Things will never be the same (as the time we had) Now it’s time to say goodbye And walk away No grow, we stay the same, yet expecting change again So go, this charade must come to its end REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT Oh no, the circle turns again So low, return face the end REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS

Got a metal suit and brutal tie Throw the horns at all who pass you by Off to work, you bang your head Rock all day then it’s off to brutal bed You’re more metal than me You drift away to steel dreams The one thing that’s harder than you Is how hard you try… CHORUS: I don’t ever want to be Someone else untrue to me Just a parody And be a 2D person in a 3D world Never buy into the hype Always follow what feels right Become the archetype And not a 2D person in a 3D world Got your pants down low and your hood up high Wrapped up tight, your golden chains they shine It’s forty degrees on a summer’s day Your skin white as the snow so far away You’re more hardcore than me Crusin’ to your R’n’B You’re so ill dope and fly You’re from the west side… of Bankstown REPEAT CHORUS Don’t care if you’re… Black white, Tall short, Thin fat Or care if you’re… Gay straight, Boy girl, Rich poor Or even if you’re… Hardcore, raver, punk rock, metalhead Gamer geek, Jesus freak, Atheist Or have a… Big house, rich friends, fast car, ten guitars You’re still a douche! SOLO: LT BRIDGE: So like what you like Be proud of who you are But you look like a fool When you take it too far… REPEAT CHORUS x2

The day has come, out of time Journey’s end – it’s the end of the line A time for tears, to face your fears Retrace the years, here by fate or by design PRE-CHORUS 1: Will you stare back in sorrow Or remember the smiles and the sighs So farewell everyone One look back now the race is all but run End of day, no more to say Accept your fate Or do you pray it’s some mistake PRE-CHORUS 2: Be it leading or follow Face the truth, were you all you should be CHORUS: In the final seconds of your life Will you cry or fly As you walk into the light “So take me” One last reflection on your time As it fades away And you face your last tomorrow Forever Your time has come SOLO: LT / MARK REPEAT PRE-CHORUS 1 REPEAT CHORUS

Tonight there’s a spark in the air The last curtain call With crowd growing restless I take to the stage To the cheers of their great enthrall Under the fervid gaslights The pleasure and pain Reciting line after line from the heart This moment unseen again PRE-CHORUS 1: Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday The thrill of the show, this chill never goes away, no The roar of the crowd, the agony and ecstasy That was then, this is now Now it’s gone… CHORUS: I’m walking through a moonless night Keep searching for a new spotlight And everyday it takes all my might To make it through to morning light, oh It must be two hundred years on The years lost in time Gets harder with each passing day to recall The day that I died PRE-CHORUS 2: Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday The chill, it’s like snow, the cold never fades away, no In a heartbeat, a breath, all stolen away from me A man, once with dream, once with life Now it’s gone… REPEAT CHORUS BRIDGE: And we all turned to bow, it was glorious I’d give all I have for one just last encore… SOLO: LT (acoustic) / LT / MARK PRE-CHORUS 3: Oh, it’s so long ago, it all feels like yesterday The thrill of the show, this chill never goes away, no In a heartbeat, a breath, all stolen away from me A man, once with dream, once with life Now it’s gone… REPEAT CHORUS x2

We think we know the answers It’s there in black and white for all to see Yet look beyond the madness Another truth, another world for you and me Show you open doors To use your mind and think Lead you to the shore To the water, but you have to want to drink And once I too was blinded Believing what was told for all to hear We’re all so simple-minded Another lie, another life controlled by fear Show you open thoughts Oppression now defied Reveal the truth, distraught At the prophecy, our journey’s end is nigh Condemn the crazy man His eyes are filled with sadness With chalkboard prophecy Foretold, we turn away SOLO: LT Just walk on by Don’t stare, don’t look him in the eye His ranting insane, profane Just turn and walk away He’s seen on every city corner A human wreck, around his neck a chalkboard sign But is he mad or sent to warn us To take control and save us all before it’s time Tolling of the bell A final desperate plea Heed the tale he tells I know the truth, that crazy man is me Condemn the crazy man His eyes are filled with sadness With chalkboard prophecy Foretold, we turn away He’s just a crazy man His mind is lost in madness Are we too blind to see That he’s the one who’s sane?

“It was a massacre that forever stands as a deathly warning to all civilised kingdoms. The unification of the clans to claim vengeance for the sins of the western nations marked the beginning of a life driven by a destiny known only to the gods…” Born to lead, fated to be king A dying breed, death amidst the din Beyond these years, fifteen winters seen Rising fears, Cimmerian war machine Forces rage, the land of blackened skies Ruthless pride, blood lust battle cries Steel descends, wet blades will sanctify Invasions end, this horror justified Fate unseen, outraged they’ll bleed Hate resounds, as one they’ll drown Darkness soars on wingless flight, devouring the daytime light Creeping through the northern haze, intensifying warring ways “The barbarians emerged from the dark lands to destroy the invaders in ways never before seen…” SOLO: MARK “With sword in hand and strength ingrained, a conqueror amongst them strode forth with the aura of a king, destined for greatness…” Fate unseen, outraged they’ll bleed Hate resounds, as one they’ll drown Darkness soars on wingless flight, devouring the daytime light Creeping through the northern haze, intensifying warring ways Reigning down this shadowed form, resurrection god reborn Illusions of a grand empire, mocking this now dead desire
