Times Out
Time's out, where're the keys to the car
no time, a thousand million things to do
I'm running like mad, so I don't forget
time's short, why have I got a watch

Gentlemen, you're here let's be clear
we're disussing doe, so bow down low,
bullshit walks, and money talks
I think we're done, so let's adjourn

Time's out, I forgot the family
please James, get the cheque book...now

Gentlemen, you're here let's be clear
we're discussing doe, so bow down low,
bullshit walks, and monye talks
I think we're done, so let's adjourn

Did my wife get the doe for the booze
has my son got enough for another shot
did my daughter finally find a man,
thank god for a butler, who knows his job

Time's out, I forgot the family
please James, get the cheque book...now

Gentlemen, you're here let's be clear
we're discussing doe, so bow down low,
bullshit walks, and monye talks
I think we're done, so let's adjourn

Did my wife get the doe for the booze
has my son got enough for another shot
did my daughter finally find a man,
thank god for a butler, who knows his jobback to top
The Beholder
I was living my life, as a 9 to 5,
I fed the kids, and the wife too
All of a sudden, Icouldn't understand
I'm under arrest...what the hell for
You were there, you must've known
You're not innocent, you were in the show
Your rights I'll read you (in cell)
You were there, you bloody well knew
Justice, it's a thing of the past, very past
Right or wrong
where do you think, you think you are
Freedom who are you trying to kid
You're in the soup, try live with that
Is it your title, that decides it all
Is it birthright, who should rise or fall
Have I not the right, the right to prove
Are the scales of justice for you to move, for you to move
I AM THE BEHOLDER
I lived my life as a 9 to 5
I fed the lot, was not alive
All of the sudded, I really understood,
Ashes to ashes, flesh to wood
You were there, you must've known
You're not innocent, you were in the show
Your rights I'll read you (in cell)
You were there, you bloody well knew
Justice, it's a thing of the past, very past
Right or wrong...
where do you think, you think you are
Freedom, who are you trying to kid
You're in the soup, try live with that
Is it your title, that decides it all
Is it birthright, who should rise or fall
Have I not the right, the right to prove
Are the scales of justice for you to move, for you to moveback to top
The Legionnaire
Lying on some sun-bleached dune,
awaiting the last assault, it won't be long, oh not long
I feel so out of place...a lifeless land,
what a forlorn place for a man to die

Not contemplating, is it wtong or is it right
playing God in foreign lands, announcing
death, the harbinger...
"Vive la morte" I cry, without remorse I wield
the killing tool

I too once lived, till I had to flee,
so far away, from all that I loved, all that I left
behind
I became a machine, trained to kill and forget
what I had once been

Why do I still feel the pain, there must be some
part,
they did not erase...an error in the machine

Oh I can see it now, the dusty road to death
no turing back...it's my coffin full of dreams...
and it's all I have, in the final scene...welcome death

No one sheds a tear, for the legionnaire

Yours is to do and die and not...to question why

Make ready... and over the top you go

This is the final stand, no turing back now,
time to meet your fate
All my hopes in vain, all just a coffin full of
dreams, a coffin full of dreams

I have made my peace, to my spirit I shall remain true...

Even though I embrace death, my tortured
soul will finally be freed...back to top
Introspection
I am the beholder, I have beauty for the eye
If you can't see, are you blind
Are lower beings, showing you the way
showing you the way

No more pair, the feeling all laid numb
So introspective, welcome, here you come
Nauseation, I most suppress
Are you sick, or simply the best
The beholder sees it all
Don't hide, nothing there
The beast has finally, reard it's head
I am the beholder, I have beauty for the eye
If you can't see, are you blind
Are lower beings, showing you the way,
showing you the way

Now you can see, now you are not blind
You're better people, no path to find
I'm the beholder, I have beauty for the eye
No nore pain, the feeling all laid numb
So introspective, welcome, here you come
Nauseation, most suppress
Are you sick, or simply the best
The beholder sees it all
Don't hide, nothing there
The beast has finally, reard it's head
I am the beholder, I have beauty for the eye
If you can't see, are you blind
Are lower beings, showing you the way,
showing you the wayback to top
Signs
In ancient times, of age - old centuries,
superior technology, by far surpassing ours,
it was a time of vast achievement,
that still defeats comprehension
even in this day and age

There are signs of this obscure dimension,
they are portals to the other side
there are so many undeciphered scriptures,
we are not yet able to read

Is it ignorance, that clouds our perception,
or are we afraid, that we might see

They walked as rulers of the universe,
falling to see, so many other things
halted progress, stagnated thinking
is why these cultures had to die

Surounded by our advanced technology,
yet we still don't open (up) our minds
to heed the omnious portents around us,
the legacy of extinct beings,
a doorway to the other side

There are signs of this obscure dimension,
there are so many undeciphered scriptures,
we are not yet able to read,
and probably wouldn't comprehend,
even if we could

Is it ignorance, that clouds our perception,
or are we afraid, that we might see

Are we the epitome of creation
walking as rulers of the universe
So many portents, so many warnings,
but we cannot perceive the obvious signs

Never saw...Never saw...Never saw... their eyes
Never heeded their signs...
You don't either...
Never saw their eyes...
You won't eitherback to top
Your Tool
Feed me, feed me, with unscrupulous hate,
take possession of my mind

Don't stop treating me don't stop telling me
what's good or bad
don't give me the chance to be someone

The day will come, I'll do everything for you
The day will come, I'll do it all for your pleasure

Ready to follow you, I'll be there
ready to follow you, but stay with me.
Please don't leave me alone,
I can't be without your control
Take possession of my mind, do with me, what you want
You can treat me, you can use me, but let me be someone

I'm nothing without you, I can't live on my own
impossible to be without you, why have you never given me,
given me a purpose, given me a purpose

The day will come, I'll do everything for you
The day will come, I'll do anything you want
from me
ready to follow you, I'll be there
Ready to follow you, but stay with me, don't leave me alone
I can't be without your control,
take possession of my mind, take possession of my mindback to top
New Beginning
Travelling through the vast unknown
reaching point, asking myself
is this really it? Is there nothing else
What is this all supposed to mean

Is everything important, or is it meaningless
Is everything good, or is it really bad

Will I find the way that I should go

Whom can I trust, who have I got to trust
whom can I trust...questions but no answers

What's like to live forever, when you don't know what for
perhaps all questions are answered, in the vast unknown

Is anything important, or is it meaningless
Is anything good, or is it reeally bad

Will I find the way that I should go

Whom can I trust, who have I got to trust
whom can I trust...questions but no answersback to top
Awake
Open your eyes, take a look around,
there's an ill-boding wind, blowing into your face

You can sense it

The weak are swept away,
insignificance, lying on the side of a street

Indifference, passed by

Open you eyes, awake from you dreams,
this is the only way

Open your eyes, awake from your dreams,
only this is the way, only way

Enveloped by your myopic dreams,
make up your mind and prepare yourself
have you taken your stance?
No second chance
You've made your decision, despite derision

Who believes in you, who believes in me,
I believe in me

Don't stand still, open your mind,
it's all right, you will find
Come on this is the way
Your path on dusty streets

Open you eyes, awake from your dreams
this is the only way
Open your eyes, awake from your dreams

Who believes in you, who believes in me,
I believe in me

Your way on dusty streetsback to top
Another Beginning
I see you image before me, your picture on the wall,
why did you leave me...alone
The day and night...endless, a part of me has gone
I'm not so strong

How could you hurt me so, I thought you loved me,
can't you feel the pain, you left me behind,
what was the reason why...something else on the other side

Did someone come, to guide you on your way,
was it something, to make eternity worthwhile
Please let me know, just a simple sign
show me the door, just the door

You didn't hurt me, now I know you love me
I feel no more pain, no longer left behind
There is a reason, there is aonther sideback to top
