Soldier Of The Line
Soldier of the line how does it feel
You're far away from home polishing steel
The sun moves in between the mountain and sky
As dawn puts out its fingers splitting them wide

Soldier of the line what do you know
About the other side, they never show
They must be well disguised biding their time
Their armour well prepared so nothing will shine

Soldier of the line would you kill me
There's something in your eyes stopping you see
They're cloudy and you turn your head away
What's that rolling down your face, are you OK?

Hold back those tears from your eye
Don't show those feelings inside
You're in a murderous playground
War games on a castle wall
You're in a murderous playground
Crossed out if you dare to fall

Soldier of the line it isn't fair
You're bleeding deep inside nobody cares
Your flag and lance stand proud splintered and red
No movement in the field, the crows will be fed

Soldier of the line you've come to the end
You'll never get to see your mother again
Some unfamiliar place you're going to stay
An unremembered name an unforgettable dayback to top
On The Edge Of The World
In midnight skies burn on many stories untold
On icy nights winds blow that touch everyone
You still think you are so far away
But you pay the dearest price of us all

'Cause you stand on the edge of the world
And you're dreaming all your precious time away
Dreaming all your precious time away

Morning comes so soon too bright in your eyes
Talking to yourself you don't even try
There alone where no-one bothers you
You can stay a thousand miles from us all

And in this world you sleep ignoring
Another night has passed
This endless sleep might be rewarding
Don't let it be your lastback to top
The Spirit
Don't place your trust in foolish promises sworn
Nor cryptic message scrawled upon every wall
Street corner justice beware
The spirit will find you always be fair
The shallow verse once read means nothing at all
Nor fearful gestures made for instant recall
In lies your heart will not share
The spirit inside used without care

The spirit that guides you follow it through
To the spirit inside you always be true
You know you'll despair
If the spirit inside is used without care

The battlefield of glory pales into rust
The river flows much thicker fed by each thrust
No beast alive does compare
The spirit beside you everywhere
Let not your head be turned by tainted reward
And dreams of fortune won forever to hoard
Your conscience could not repair
The spirit inside used without care

'Cause it will be your shelter, help you how to decide
And it will be your helper should your loyalties divide

The ash of pages swept before the cruel wind
The loss of choices praises no-one will sing
No clues to how you will fare
The spirit implores you tread where you dare
The dust lies thick on casket rich or quite poor
Distinction disappears the worm both deplore
The candle burns out once more
But the spirit inside you won't be ignoredback to top
The Sacred Hour
All of my dreams that fell through and had tasted so sour
Take second place in my mind for this one sacred hour
Still I've been moved for so long by this strange fascination
Here as I stand all alone in complete concentration

Face through the clouds in the Gods shine with awe and splendour
Rise up and roar they approve will they always remember
I hear the voice of the crowd, it will last forever
Locked in my heart kept away like a stolen treasure

I can hear them calling
Hear the crowd applauding
If it's real I like the feeling
If I'm wrong who am I deceiving?

Night after night it repeats an exciting romance
Shared by us all though we met by a fleeting half-chance
Caught, trapped in time no escape from this powerful dreamworld
Pleased though I am to be here I am lost in the real worldback to top
Walking The Straight Line
Love don't come easy so don't treat it light
Remember there's two sides you'll make it alright
No magic potion no way to tell
Could be like heaven might be like hell

You're tempted to look around comes to us all
In moments of pleasure you're bound to recall
One bad decision that's all it will take
From something you treasure to something you break

Walking the straight line I hope it's the same with you
Walking the straight line that's all you gotta doback to top
We All Play The Game
Now you've found yourself can you tell me how you feel
Oh you look so well everything seems new and real
Can you rise above all the worldly cares you had
All the foolish thoughts have they really left your head

Yes I'd like to see if you really know for sure
Are you still conviced what you had was less before
Will it last for long you're obsessed by new ideas
There's a change in you but you change most every year

Can you stand there and tell me now
It's not only a dream it's better
It's a part you could play for ever
We all play the game
We all play the game
And 'though we think again still it will be the same
We play the game this foolish game

The search goes on never ending thirst unquenched
What you're looking for someone yet has to invent
Does it please you well did you have to look so hard
And you travel far 'though the answer's in your heartback to top
The Teacher
I bring you peace and understanding
I give you freedom from your cares
I bring the truth with no illusion
To give you hope when you despair

I have the secret of the whirlwind
I keep the eagle close at hand
This kingdom tall as any mountain
Will reap the treasure from the land

I am the teacher
I am the teacher
I am the teacher
More than you'll ever know
Everything I can show

I have the answers to all questions
Above us here and far below
No voices will be raised in anger
No cruel ambitions will you showback to top
The Lights Burned Out
The lights burned out, and with it it's taken my eyes
It seems so hard it's taken me by surprise
And oh baby all that you said must be lies

I cease to feel the wind and the rain on my face
Sometimes I'm sure but then I'm confused in my haste
And oh baby I'm standing but taking no space

But I don't cry easy no I don't cry at all
Oh but you don't believe me and I think that's my only downfall

What am I going to do about you baby
What am I going to do without you now

You had my love wild as an ocean could call
I was the fool and you were the winner take all
And oh baby it's so much to me yet so smallback to top
