Track Name: Death From Above
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: Resurrection
A memory of a time
When we were proud to live our dreams
There'll be no compromise
Standing tall, we will be supreme

PRE-CHORUS:
No-one could crush our will to be
This time we're gonna make them see...

CHORUS:
The resurrection time is now
Forever we survive
Back from the grave to take control
Forever...
The resurrection time is now
Returning from the fire
We have the strength, we have the power
Forever we survive...

They tried to tear us down
Rape our hearts and steal our dreams
This time we won't hold back
Glory bound, we claim our victory...

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Standing tall and standing proud
The beast inside is breaking out...

SOLO: LT / Mark

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Paradise
I felt so weak, all hope was gone
My skin blistered slowly away
Gangrene and Smallpox - no life left inside of me
The pain that I felt was unreal...

PRE-CHORUS:
I make my last stand as success comes my way
My bones gain their strength, nothing stands in my way
The final encounter decides who will win
Desire to live will survive...

CHORUS:
Running away to paradise - victory in my sights
Running away to paradise - the gods are on my side

My body aching - scarred, torn and wretched
Forced to go on through the pain
Was it will that revived me, brought life back inside of me
With blood flowing fast though my veins...

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

SOLO: LT
Track Name: No Way Out
Take a look at yourself
What you see isn't real
It's just a part of your imagination
I see you standing here in front of me, yeah
I hear you talking yet you should not be there

PRE-CHORUS:
Just an image from my mind
A dark memory
Stalking close and never letting me be
I push you back, close the blind, lock you away
Drive out the pain and all the misery...

CHORUS:
No way out - trapped in your world of make-believe
Lost in the dark, can't find my way
Your grip is tightening on me...

No point in fighting you now
You keep on breaking the rules
I make the play but you just turn it upside down
These games you play, you know they're killing me
Haunting my dreams and never letting me sleep

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

BRIDGE:
What keeps you safe in your home
Your locked and bolted door
Who knows your dark fear of night
Your TV screen can't keep you warm...

REPEAT CHORUS / AD-LIB TO END
Track Name: Wake Up
On every corner there's a preacher
In every city there's a prayer
And as they crucify each other
I contemplate the open air... yeah...

CHORUS:
Wake up x4

And every man becomes a saviour
So in the name peace condemn
It's funny how the big solution
Just brings the greatest sinners in... yeah...

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Righteous to the end
As they rape your children
And like children we obey...

SOLO: LT

A holy war on the horizon
Same old excuses still at hand
They say he made us in his likeness
I say we shaped him like a man...

REPEAT CHORUS / AD-LIB TO END
Track Name: Fight
You - you promised us hope
You gave us a dream
You promised us lies

Now you - you've taken it all
You've taken our lives
And thrown them away

CHORUS:
Fight - fight for your lives
Fight - fight to be free, yeah
Death to them all, the liars and cheats
Fight - to kill them all...

They - they think that they're right
They think they're supreme
They're too blind to see

Now we - we rise to the call
Stand 'til we fall
Broken and weak...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: Time To Die
Suffer my child, bleed for me now
Cleanse your soul, set your spirit free
Fly for me or the devil take your soul
Burn for me, you will believe

PRE-CHORUS:
Rituals turning in my head
My senses dulled, I'm burning...

CHORUS:
I see my life before my eyes
There's nothing there I can deny
What have I done in my time
Screaming out before I die...

Rescue me - somebody save me
Demons in my mind driving me insane
Darkness all around taking blood from me
Searing heat burning, peeling my skin

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS x 2

One more chance, one more life
There's still time to see the light (REPEAT)
Track Name: Severed Ties
So here we're stading now
So many years passed
Old words just like the stars
So much still left unsaid
Yet we know there's nothing more to say

The chapter is closing now
Stand at the crossroads
It's time to find a way
And as the sun goes down
We're walking away

CHORUS:
Severing ties, severing ties
It's come to the time to say goodbye
When it's time to leave, it's time to go
When it's time you'll know
It's time to say your last goodbyes...

So thanks for the memories
Locked up tight
And carried deep within
And maybe cross paths one day
And new ties begin

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: I Am Death
Death - the anti-hero, champion of the doomed
I'll be there to end your life, to take you to your tomb
I will seal your fate, before me you'll decay
There's no escape, your soul is gone - I'll steal your life away

PRE-CHORUS:
I'll end your suffering, I'll end your pain
When you take your final breath - then you'll know my name...

CHORUS:
I am death (death - death - death) x 4

I live within the hungry children on the streets
I'm the disease that kills you while you sleep
I am the needle that's in the junkie's arm
I am the tormentor - the storm before the calm

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS

SOLO: LT / Mark

They call me the reaper - I am the man in black
When you give your life to me, there is no turning back
You will know the end is near - you'll see my toothy grin
Now you leave this life of hell, but another one begins...

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS x 2
Track Name: Judgment Day
SOLO: LT

These games that you're playing have gone on for far too long
Ulterior motives and hidden agendas and lies
Transparent like glass, I saw through you right from the start
It's the end of the line, now it's time - judgment day...

CHORUS:
You can't run or hide - you know that I'll find you
Oh, it's now your time - you've reached your judgment day...

So blatantly clear, are you stupid or are you insane?
A blind man could see your deceit, but still you try - why?
Feeding your ego - I tell you that you're not that good
Pull in your head now, my friend, or I'll take you down...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Mark

REPEAT 1st VERSE and CHORUS x2
Track Name: The Legend Of Huma
Oh - the armies of darkness are coming to poison the lands
Takhisis, the queen of the night has risen again
Five-headed dragon returned from the land of the dead
To enslave us all

Oh - may Paladine smile upon us as we go to war
Like ancient Solamnic Knights have battled before
Defenders of light, sworn to fight for us all
To save the world

PRE-CHORUS:
Silver and gold - the dragons of light
Pushing the darkness aside
The Measure and Code - the law of the knights
Echoing in my mind...

CHORUS:
My honour - is my life
My honour - will survive (REPEAT)

Oh - as I look deep into the elf-maiden's eyes
Gwyneth, my love, don't you mourn for me if I die
Your memory will pass with me into the next life
You’ll always be part of me

Now - as I ride through the sky, a dragon of silver below
The dragon is one with Gwyneth, but how could I've known?
I focus my mind, remember the Solamnic Oath
As we reach the queen...

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

Flames were all around, they heard the victory cry
Ansalon was spared, but they knew they'd reached their time
With their final breath, her secret was set free
'Huma, I'm one with you - you're one with me...'

Now as you look into the sky, there's two new shining stars
The legend handed down from son to son, sung by bards
The dragon and the ancient knight did defeat the evil queen
They went to their deaths together with a love that could never be...

REPEAT CHORUS x 2
Track Name: The Prophecy
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: A Rise To Power
I've walked through the lonely places
I've seen years of hurt in their eyes
And passing the empty faces
The story told so many times

Now it's time to fight
Together we unite - Tonight, we shall arise!

Their spirit lay crushed before them
All hope gone before it began
A new cause, behold the savior
The chosen, a leader of men

Now it's time to fight
Together we unite
From out of the darkness and leading us on in...

CHORUS 1:
A rise to power, the world is in our hands
Marching on, we fight as one
A rise to power, we spread throughout the lands
Cast aside the fallen ones
The armies of the light, we shall arise!

SOLO: LT

I am the chosen one
The hand of God upon the world
Oppose my word and you'll all be destroyed

As time marches on eternal
Growing in strength, my word is feared
Don't pray to your gods - you now pray to me!
Heed my words and save your soul...

SOLO: LT

CHORUS 2:
A rise to power, the world is in my hands
A sign from God, I'm the the chosen one
A rise to power, we spread throughout the lands
Cast aside the fallen ones
The armies show my might, we shall arise!

Marching on and on, to my eyes I do no wrong
Blinded to the truth - I'm just a man
Believing my own words, distort the world with lies
Into madness I descend - forevermore...

SOLO: LT

CHORUS 3:
A rise to power, the world was in my hands
Cast aside - the fallen one
The final hour - into madness I descend
A final curse, though tonight I burn
My spirit will survive, I shall arise!
Track Name: Netherlife (Black Roses Die)
SOLO: LT

A shadow falls upon the night
A freezing cold and fear - my herald call
A noble man once long ago
Now evil burns within my soul
The power is mine, no one I fear
When life or death is my command
I'd trade it all to turn back time...

I was once a mortal man
Saw jealousy arise - my pride and fall
I do not live, I cannot die
I'm cursed to walk these streets alone
Eternal life but not alive
The Banshees cry my tragic tale
Every morning with the dawn...

CHORUS:
Blackened heart, blackened soul, netherlife
All I am, all I feel, all I see
Black roses die...

SOLO: LT

From the night I betrayed my world
And myself
I still feel the flames
Burned - scarred
What is left of me? What remains?
Cursed - scorned
My foolish pride!
Eternal life, eternal death - I paid the price...

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Insanity's Fall
United we stand
All intention is clear
Enraged by injustice
No longer blinded by fear

BRIDGE 1:
Young blood within us
Tired of wasting time
We will crush you - all! (DIE!)

Never doubting
Always in control
Believing in something
We've never known at all

BRIDGE 2:
Young blood within us
Strength born of fire
We will rise up - high!

CHORUS:
Insanity's fall - divided and torn
In glory or death we will rise
Fire in our eyes, in cold frost of night
Our guide into darkness will die...

Hardened by anger
Our salvation draws near
My heart, my soul
My life - my own

BRIDGE 3:
Too late - I know
I see the forces rising
Before the lines I pray
The future will be...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: The Other Side
SOLO: LT

Making the play, the future is mine
Seizing the day, walking the line
Here I stand, just a man with his life in his hands
With tooth and nail and hand over fist I climb on and on...

PRE-CHORUS 1:
A dream of a life far from here
I know one day I'll find...

CHORUS:
A better way
A brighter day
The perfect life
Is on the other side
A chance for me
To live the dream
The grass is green
On the other side...

Reaching the top and I wonder, is this all there is?
All those years that I walked the line
Played the role, took it's toll on this goldfish bowl I call life
From every direction a voice - don't know which way to turn...

PRE-CHORUS 2:
I search for a life far from here
The one I left behind...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLOs: LT

BRIDGE:
Another headline, another fallen star
Are we better off where we are?

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: Stormchaser
Oh - Thunder roars, the sky above is black
Lightning cracks the sky
Oh - Horizontal rain that drives us back
But still we've got to try...

CHORUS:
Stormchaser (x4)

Oh - Electronic sensors watch the sky
Chaos all around
Oh - Fujita scale left somewhere far behind
We face a monster on the ground...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: Where Madness Hides
I've heard about the secret voices
Claiming to be heard
Their souls were lost in madness
Never to return

Reaching out from within the circle
Dictating all our lives
No feelings felt, all questions answered
Too easy we deny

PRE-CHORUS:
Can't leave this realm behind
Or all I am inside me dies
Defending the innocents' every life...

CHORUS 1:
Lost - in this nightmare, a world full of fear
Where madness hides
Lost - in the shadows when darkness falls
I'm lost inside my mind...

Sunrise holds no guarantees
Foreclosure or relief
The system failed, the silence broken
Crushed beyond belief

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS 2:
Lost - in this nightmare, a world full of fear
Where madness hides
Lost - in the shadows when darkness falls
Inside my mind
Blind - in the twilight that comes for us all
In the dead of night
Lost - when there's nowhere left to run
I'm lost inside my mind...

SOLO: LT

BRIDGE:
Is this real or is this a dream?
Can't leave this world behind me now
Again I pray for the dawn...

REPEAT CHORUS 2
Track Name: Lost In The Light
A plastic life inside a plastic world
No longer feel the fire
So sanitised, integrity's demise
It's evil in disguise...

We blindly trust our guiding light
Following misguided dreams
What have we done? We've gone too far...

Unwise to the world, we're told what to see
Force-fed a life so sugary sweet
Never questioning the world around us
Never dared to look inside...

CHORUS:
We are lost in the light
Inner darkness that betrays the night
Is this the world we wanted?
Somehow we've lost our way...
We've lost our way...

SOLOs: LT

Censored thoughts, so far removed from life
Everything we see on TV, the music we hear, the games we play
Twisted and diluted to "protect us"
Is it any wonder our children are looking elsewhere for the truth?
Feeling the anger rise when they learn it's all been lies...

BASS SOLO: Dakk

SOLOs: LT

Deprived of the truth, we're told what to feel
Accepting their words, a world beyond real
What once began with the best intentions
Somehow ended up as lies...

REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO VOCALS + SOLO: LT
Track Name: Life Is Black
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: The Birth: The Trauma Begins
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: Traumatised
I can't believe what I can see
A human? An alien? Something in between?
Strapped down screams, a white room red
Ripping flesh, her final breath

Chaos, fear, transfixed in place
Emerging form now taking shape
Trapped inside this deadly space
Death is here...

Is this a force of nature?
Can I relate to it, for...

I need your mind to guide me
I need your strength inside me
How could I be so blind?

Fear is sending me blind
I can't breathe inside
An infant's mind but so much more
Is reaching out to all

Horror, hatred, deep in shock
All thoughts are known to me
Can't comprehend what I've done wrong
Death I fear...

This is no force of nature
I can relate to it, for...

I want your mind to guide me
I want your strength inside me
How can fear be kind?

SOLOs: LT

BRIDGE:
Join with me and you will see the key to human destiny
Release the pain and suffering, transforming bland society
Evolving form, evolving mind, I'll show you what you're meant to be
Beyond the realm of stagnant life, I offer you infinity!

Dripping blood the only sound
Silent stares from all around
Rising up the creature smiles
Its purpose realised

Reach within unknowing minds
Steal knowledge, strength, all life it finds
The final human chapter told
Now death is here!

There is contempt of nature
There's no relation here, 'cos...

I have your mind to guide me
And I have your strength inside me
Traumatised...

I have your minds inside me
Leaving human life behind me
You're traumatised....
Track Name: A Rise To Power (Reprise)
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: The Power Within
Look within for a place deep inside me
Where I can believe
Seek the truth my own master, my own king
Where my spirit is free

Seeking gold and the treasure external
Fight within for the chance to grow
See the real man within, he's eternal
Deep inside we all know

We all search for the mysteries of Eden
I now know what's inside - there's no turning back...

CHORUS:
Every man has a kingdom inside him
Will he ever see
What is here in the now is the reason
Find the path for his soul to be free
Deep inside is the key...

Pushing on with the strength of conviction
Now within there's a fire inside
Find the answer without contradiction
My soul free to fly

If we look to the power within us
Look inside, there is no turning back...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: Mark / LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: Against The Wind
A bad place, a dark space
The lines that weather my face
I stand alone before the storm

Walk with me and you'll see
The flame that burns within me
A fire so cold to keep us so warm

You see the darkness in my eyes
The seed of life inside me dies
A search for the truth, to find a reason why
A voice cries out in pain in the night...

CHORUS:
Riding the storm wind
And facing the demons inside
A thousand sins behind my eyes
A cry from the blackness
Alone with the darkness inside
Forever will I walk against the wind...

No rhyme and no reason
My world betrayed by treason
I stumble blind, what's going on?

Can't see the road that lies beyond
A need to feel where I belong
When everywhere I turn seems to guide me wrong
Running through the night for so long...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: The Art Of War
Young man he walks alone
The power unto his own
The ancient arts under command

Stand fast, don't run away
What was learned is now to betray

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

The boy is now a man
His family honour now betrayed
His vengeance burning deep within

Stand fast, won't run away
What was learned is now to betray

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

CHORUS:
It was developed in the art of war
My blood and spirit made of iron fury

Through blood and battle scarred
The warrior now foretold
His spirit rises to the sky

More than a mortal man
Crush all that dare to face me

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

Passed on unto the son
The power of the fallen one
The ancient arts reborn forever

Stand fast, don't run away
The art of war shall rise again

I'll fight you, I'll kill you
You've nowhere left to run
Your life within my power
Immortal forever

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: The Hunger
Eyes of a child
Watch as the world goes by
Yet to be torn away
From innocent times

As time goes by
We're soon taught to realise
Our dreams are but dust in the wind
And innocence dies

Over and over
We're thrown to the ground
But over and over
We're clawing our way back to daylight again

CHORUS 1:
Remember the hunger that burns inside
Remember the fire within
Take hold of your dreams with both hands
And don't let go again...

Sand through our hands
Time seems to slip away
Harder to keep the faith
And face a new day

Over and over
We fall to our knees
But over and over
We know in our hearts that we'll climb to our feet

CHORUS 2:
Remember the hunger that burns inside (hunger burns like)
Remember the fire within (fire within)
Take hold of your dreams with both hands (hold your dreams and)
And don't let go (don't let go)
Search for the strength that beats in your heart (strength inside your)
And search for the hunger inside (heart and hunger)
Remember the dreams of a child (dreams within a child)
And oh, don't let go again... (don't let go)

SOLOs: LT

Over and over
We're thrown to the ground
But over and over
We know in our hearts that these dreams never end

REPEAT CHORUS 2
Track Name: Surface Tension
Oh, we all live by the lie
As children we comply
Dark feelings we deny

You see it in my eyes
And feel the anger rise
From deep inside

CHORUS:
Beneath the surface tension
The waves start to break
And face the truth that lies within
You're screaming...
Anger builds inside of me
See the world as it should be
Lived a life of agony
Breaking point, we can't control the rage...

Oh, we face another day
And try hard to restrain
The fire beneath our skin

Resign yourself to fate
Release yourself from pain
Before it's too late

REPEAT CHORUS

Day after day, year after year
Not a thing changes in my mundane life
Every morning I tighten the noose around my neck
And try to fit in with society
Face after face, line after line
It's an endless stream of morons
One day I'll make them pay
One day soon I feel I'm just about to BREAK!

SOLO: Mark / LT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Tarranno Del Mar
I, King of the sea
A galleon ship, the waves of torment and destiny
A thousand winds bear our gust, my eyes are blinded by hate
With the hammer of war and evil onboard
At the edge of hell we await

A pauper's son, a god reborn
My name is death's last kiss
The iron cross of Usthanates
From the secrets of the deep

CHORUS:
There's an evil force inside of me
Will it end, I do not know
Unholy force that lives inside my dreams
To the gates of hell we roar
Down below...

Blood and battle-scarred, the sea my domain
None shall pass the Maybelle alive
Victims forty score, my sails filled from hell
Victims of the seven seas...

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO: LT

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: One Step Beyond
Walked the world today
Passed the lines of clouded eyes
Go to church and pray
Social farce, no God inside

Open your eyes
You'll realise
In this sea of senseless lies
You live your life...

Politicians say
All the 'truths' we need to hear
Blindly following
Is it faith or is it fear?

Open your mind
Soon you'll find
In a world of compromise
You see the light...

CHORUS:
I've gone...
One step beyond the truth
One step beyond the lie
One step beyond the pain
One step beyond...
I see a new day's morning
Arise to face the dawn

One step beyond the dark
One step beyond the light
One step beyond the fear
One step beyond...
I see a new day dawning
We rise to heed the warning call...

SOLOs: LT

Open your eyes
You'll realise
In this sea of senseless lies
You live your life...

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Under The Cross
A quest for a wealth untold
Reaping the fields of gold
A chance to live as a king for every man

Corruption within the state
Political disarray
No freedom or justice for all in the land

Oh... Our rights denied
Oh... Prepare now to fight
So, we swear allegiance, a rebellion to come
A new flag is raised toward the sun...

CHORUS:
As we stand below the Southern Cross
Brothers united as one
Stand together - a united force
We will all overcome...

Renewed by the strength within
The oath sworn the wait begins
In grim resolve for what lies ahead

At dawn a surprise attack
Authorities striking back
The fields of gold now stained with seas of red

Oh... Our people may die
No... They can't take our pride
Oh, we swore allegiance, a rebellion was won
A new flag still raised toward the sun...

REPEAT CHORUS

Though we fought with our honour and pride
We're outnumbered a hundred to one
Defeated, but history showed
We have truly won..

SOLO: LT

WE SWEAR BY THE SOUTHERN CROSS
TO STAND TRULY BY EACH OTHER,
AND FIGHT TO DEFEND
OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES.

REPEAT CHORUS x2
Track Name: Epilogue
(INSTRUMENTAL)
Track Name: Pariah
Cast from the social circle
Scorned upper echelon
Cursed and betrayed, condemned to walk alone
Denied of social justice
Saw freedom was a crime
Belie respect so watch us walk away

One step beyond the mainstream
Discover who we are
And compromise their perfect world so small
Instinctive sense of freedom
Destroy their comfort zone
A victim of the times we'll never be

PRE-CHORUS:
If you see through our eyes
At a world full of lies
Born to be free
And forever we'll be

Pariah...

Tear down archaic values
Forge future paths of steel
Deny their mediocre way of life
False strength that's born of numbers
No match for strength within
Integrity shall savour victory

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS

Pariah...

CHORUS:
Acceptance is unknown
Condemned to walk alone
Outcast and untouchable
Forever free to roam

Pariah...

SOLOs: LT

REPEAT CHORUS x2

Pariah...
Track Name: Better Man
Deceiver - ill will you deny
Betrayer of trust you defile
False logic, the truth you defy

Of heart icy cold, turned to black
Razor-wire words of attack
With thrust of the blade to my back

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And watching your fables unfold
In time truth be told

CHORUS:
I will always be the better man
I will always be the best man that I can
So come on twist the knife, my friend
But I'll still be here at the end
And soon you'll see you've lost it all...

So now, transparent - I see through your lies
Facade torn, betrayed, no surprise
Remaining respect cast aside

As plain as the day now it's clear
Playing the game, insincere
Caught up in your own web of tears

And watch as your crocodile smile
Is betrayed by your eyes

Track Name: Curse Of The Pharaohs
In the northern lands of Thebes
Under a heartless sun
Three hundred lifetimes ago

Here it lay, the Pharaoh's kingdom
Horizon of the Aten
So lived a child who would be king

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And so he lived and so he died
A tomb than no man shall defile
Forever lost are the fools who dare defy

CHORUS:
(The curse of the Pharaohs)
Inside the Pharaohs tomb the wealth of ages
A curse befallen those who seek the king
(The curse of the Pharaohs)
The lights of Cairo died with those who gave their lives
To the shifting sands of time

Came a man in search of glory
In the Valley Of The Kings
Unlocked a curse that doomed them all

PRE-CHORUS 2:
And so he lived and so he died
And all who conspired paid the price
Death will come swiftly to those who dared defy

Track Name: Fire Of Time
In a wasteland
In a world led astray
Left high and dry
And a million miles from home

Our inception
So far away
But tomorrow lies
Along this lonely road

PRE-CHORUS 1:
And with a new day dawning
Searching for our guiding light
We shed our skin and just keep walking
And ride until the night

CHORUS:
And we journey on and on
Wheels turning, we've only just begun
In time's fire we burn
As the candle dies, our future lies beyond
On and on...

In this story
We re-write book of life
The pages turn
And time just slips away

On our journey
Transcend amorphous lands
We've come so far
Yet so much more to go

PRE-CHORUS 2:
And as we reach for glory
Old chapters fade away
So turn the page and tell the story
And live another day

REPEAT CHORUS x 2
Track Name: Gallipoli
So southern sons
Swallow propaganda
And set sail to leave our shores
So far away, a distant war

No voice to say
No word opposed
The orders handed down from feckless hands
All condemned to die in foreign lands

PRE-CHORUS:
Eight thousand men to lose their lives
Honour 'til death, the ANZAC pride

CHORUS:
Orders taught, we storm the Dardanelles
A futile task, all men condemned to hell
A legend born there as our children fell
ANZACS stand taller than all

Nowhere to hide
The raining fire of guns
Now turn the sapphire waters red
Survivors few and far between the dead

So the time has come
To scale the walls
And run the deadly gauntlet - No Man's Land
The time to stand or fall is now at hand

Track Name: Life Is A Lie
There's an empty feeling deep inside
Forever yearning, never seem to find a way
And sometimes I need to run and hide
And leave the darkness cast astray

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Try to tell myself I'm still holding on
To all the dreams inside, though they never seemed quite real
Now pain has clouded distant memories
Salted wounds that just won't heal

CHORUS:
Life is a lie - everything I thought I knew is gone
Hard to face another day
Life is a lie - all I ever wanted was the truth...

And in knowledge some may find their peace
But sometimes wisdom can turn upon its own
Find a truth that some should never see
A fool's reward, and better left unknown

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Tried to tell myself I'm still holding on
To all the dreams despite I know they're just not real
Nothing left for me but memories
Nothing left for me to feel

Life is a lie...
Track Name: Steelheart
Turning our back on society's treason
Kicked in the face, your rules - we don't need 'em

We do what we want
And say what we like
Never held back
Remain unchained... UNCHAINED!

PRE-CHORUS:
Think you're taking us down?
Well, I've got something to say

CHORUS:
Won't beg and we won't break
Your way we'll never take
We're the masters of our fate
We were born with a steelheart

You follow the blind, don't question the reason
Open your mind - it will lead to your freedom

We'll be what we want
And say what we please
Never held back
Forever we're unchained... UNCHAINED!

Track Name: The Final Chapter
Born in a barren desert
Walked on the burning sands
Said don't look back and so we ran

And as our moods were changing
Journey to distant lands
The demolition time began

PRE-CHORUS 1:
Oh, a destiny of power
Invincible, forever we survive

CHORUS 1:
Climbing up the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Feeling the hunger burn, it's do or die
Go one step beyond
To try and reach the other side
On the horizons edge
The final chapter will arise

And as we ride the stormwind
Deny there's no way out
The resurrection time is now

And in our rise to power
Higher we dare to go
One step beyond the land we know

PRE-CHORUS 2:
Oh, and some of us may falter
But nothing can destroy our will inside

CHORUS 2:
Climbing up the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Feeling the hunger and it's do or die
Go one step beyond
To try and reach the other side
On the horizons edge
The final chapter is in sight

SOLO: LT

There's no turning back
As we travel on
And the lessons learned
There's no fairy tales
Oh no....

SOLO: LT

CHORUS 3:
Standing on the mountain
And we're reaching for the sky
Just beyond our reach, we wonder why
See the world so clearly now
We've reached the other side
The future clear at last
The final chapter has arrived

CHORUS 4:
Diving from the mountain
And we're falling through the sky
Finding a greater truth, another life
Like a phoenix rising up
In flames it's time to die
All past is laid to rest
The final chapter realised
