Set In Stone


Redemption 05:31
Oh no, what have we done? Where do we go from here? Oh… we see only sorrow and pain Where is the light to guide us? To help the children find their way? Lay defeated and drowned by the rain Oh, keep searching for the reason The only way out Is to search for the answer within CHORUS: Oh – return from the cold and open your eyes Redemption, arise Oh – a spirit of gold, remember your pride The hero inside… within us all… So now, where do we go? Blinded we search for the sun Oh… who will shelter us all from the rain? To find the will inside us Reach for the dawn of an unclouded day Now free from the sorrow and pain Oh, no more staring back in anger Release your true self And let the renaissance begin… REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT / MARK REPEAT FIRST PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x2
100 Reasons 04:47
The future’s bright I tell you Another perfect day All our baggage packed we climb Aboard this sinking ship And so we sail… Takes a second to say hello And forever to say goodbye Turn the cheek of a blind denial Into another lie PRE-CHORUS: Oh, playing out this masquerade Hold on to the dream How long can we travel down this road we made? Go on alone and leave me far behind CHORUS: I tell myself we’re all okay (I can) think of a hundred different reasons For me to make you stay I leave you now and go my way To find a change of season To help me get my feet back on the ground Inside it’s so frustrating A heart wrapped in golden chain Always searching for the rainbow Always waiting in the rain REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: LT REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS OUT
Vision born of dream-like lucid flames Crimson light mastered by faceless names Burning passion or a timeless force Voices speak of shadows rising forth PRE-CHORUS: Once were dreaming Now are living Feel the rain begin to pour Hear the wind lift off and soar CHORUS: Eternal storm Restless souls Eternal storm Restless souls embrace the dying dawn Nightmares destroying mortality Creating dreamscape reality Lost and forgotten our spirit sought Forced upon us ways of lifeless thought REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: MARK REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: MARK
Set In Stone 05:15
Staring out beyond the shadows To see a world of faces all the same And find the light behind those darkened eyes And realise the skies are more than grey PRE-CHORUS: Got the hunger but we’re wanting more Forever reaching higher Remember what we’re fighting for The writing on the wall is CHORUS: Set In Stone Set In Stone Ghosts of the past now far behind me Follow the path towards a brighter day Now a fire lights inside those darkened eyes Crucify the lies of yesterday REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x 2 SOLO: LT / LT / MARK / LT / MARK REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x 4 + AD LIBS
On this dark road I tread Of despair and regret Some days you long to forget Searching for the light Taking life one step at a time Walk a path that’s only mine Shit happens, a kick to the teeth So look out for number one Some say I’m just a selfish man I say take hold of what you can Learn to swim before you drown Before life kicks you down CHORUS: On the seas of life I sail To find my way And never to return No self betrayal I won’t live my life Living someone else’s dream Some may say this pain is just an illusion Some say it’s all in your mind Life builds us up to be proud Then cuts you down like an empty lie Find yourself in this tunnel again See the light: (is it) just another train? Finding shelter from the endless rain Sometimes you find yourself Always asking why… I drag myself to my feet And take what’s rightly mine REPEAT CHORUS SOLO: MARK / LT REPEAT FIRST AND SECOND VERSE REPEAT CHORUS
Forever 08:01
I’d walk to the end of the world I’d do anything Just to see you, to be near you Feel you close for a moment And I’m lost in your eyes Charmed by your sweet smile Lips that beckon, I count the seconds ‘Til I see you again… Get to know you Want to show you I care I’ll make you see how good we’d be Together, so perfect Feel so lonely Oh, if only I could Dare to meet you, touch you, but you Don’t even know I’m alive… CHORUS: Together and never apart, my love We were meant to be And you’ll always have my heart Our love is forever Tried to speak to you Tried to meet you but you Looked right through me, just ignored me As if I was no one Now my world’s upside down Is there someone else? How can this be? You don’t want me? In my mind it’s all so crystal clear REPEAT CHORUS “I tried to show you that I care That we were meant to be But you don’t want me You were everything to me and I’m nothing to you Well, if I can’t have you, then… no one can.” SOLO: LT / MARK And now you lay here before me In the pallid light I have blood on my hands Your face a mask of white No respite for my memory As I stumble and run And my mind is in turmoil What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?! I return to your side And you lay there so beautiful, yet so still I could almost believe you were sleeping Can’t bear this world without you So clear what I have to do The choice is made, I raise the blade My love, I’ll be with you soon REPEAT CHORUS x 2
A heart strong with fire The measure that I aspire Living your life abounding Like few others do Torn from this world premature Lost to all those who cared I’m left behind alone to find my way Now I look to the skies Memories: rising tides I feel a part of me died The day you went away Gone to a place never known Free of sadness and pain Brotherhood, the memories still remain CHORUS: So wherever, wherever you may be I hope forever you’ll be proud of me So my brother, someday, I don’t know when One day, together we will meet again Far beyond the light SOLO: MARK And as time marches on This heartache will always linger I’ll shed a tear for you On those sleepless nights No matter where I may roam I feel your presence so near Gives me strength to see tomorrow’s dawn REPEAT CHORUS
War And so it goes Two nations, single-minded hate When treaties fail Condemn the world, its ghastly fate Of those who live In troubled times, in terror’s shroud Always fear the worst But never dare believe it’s now PRE-CHORUS: The time has come; it’s the end of days Our peaceful life: A ticking bomb Our time has slipped away CHORUS: And when there’s nowhere to run Fiery clouds of death that blanket the sun And when the last war is “won” No life remains, our world has turned to stone And died in flames… Death A grim demise Black shockwaves herald toxic rain And all who died More fortunate than those who still remain A tortured death Blistered skin, the cancer grows All lost, now feel the Winter’s kiss, ill winds blow REPEAT PRE-CHORUS & CHORUS SOLO: MARK / LT Fate The course of time History’s path, a legacy of hate All sense denied Descending to the end we helped create And nothing learned We’re tracing circles once again As the planet burns Ashes to the winds REPEAT PRE-CHORUS REPEAT CHORUS x2

New Horizons 06:50
Another city passes in the darkness Another country come and gone And on this never ending road I wander Seems like I’m always on the run CHORUS 1: So long ago I chose this lonely road To follow new horizons So far to roam A million miles from home So many more to go… In another life I could have been the everyman Another tale untold for me Cursed by the gypsy’s kiss and driven onward To reap the winds, forever free CHORUS 2: So long ago I chose this lonely road To follow new horizons So far to roam But one thing I know One day I’ll find that road That takes me home SOLO: LT / Pete Lesperance Another plane, another train Another thousand miles of road And one more day, I’ll find my way Home to you… Now I sit here waiting in the darkness My thoughts a million miles away Of all the things I’ve done, all the sights and wonder Not one thing could make me stay (one more day) REPEAT CHORUS 2 x2 SOLO: LT
