Questions
It's everything we do while we're here
A fear or a thought, a feeling or a dream
Touch it and taste it, breathe it all in
Say what you feel, things aren't what they seem

Why live, why breathe,
Why breed, why die?
These questions all tied up inside

It's all or nothing or what you make it
A prize or a secret, Which path do you take
Decisions and gambles, a goal to be scored
Risks and lies We all make mistakes

Why live, why breathe,
Why breed, why die?
These questions all tied up inside

Thoughts without pictures
Looks without seeing
Words without reason
Touch without feeling

Life is your reward
Not to be ignored

Why ask the questions when there's no answer?
Why play the game when there's no way to win?
Why ask the questions when there's no answers?
Why seek the truth when the truth is within?back to top
For Whose Advantage?
Corporate decisions made each day
Affecting everyone
Commercial growth is all that counts
Not harming anymore

Invade in trust, ideals unjust
Hide your reality
Invisible truth, enslaving youth
For useless vanity

They do not want to see
Their own stupidity

Unskilled hands work unashamed
Out of necessity
Incompetence and sickening greed
Void of mentality
Abolish choice, deal to the voice
Dismiss it as a lie
You violate, claim to create
Keep smiling when you die

They do not want to see
Their own stupidity

For whose advantage anyway?
This reckless nature you display
Is raping those who have to obey

Undignified
Undisciplined
Undeserved
Unashamed
Unexplained
Undisturbed

They do not want to see
Their own stupidity

For whose advantage anyway?
This reckless nature you display
Is raping those who have to obeyback to top
The Human Condition
An age that's in decline
The blind lead the blind
Live from day to day
Nothing here yet you stay
Painful memories you recall
Nothing left for you at all
Your life is your priority

No hope for you alone
Kept out of sight
Unseen, disowned
By society

You know what will be will be
No such thing as destiny
To watch the world as time ticks by
Many truths that you deny
You cannot change the way you feel
Some emotions you can't conceal
No way to end your misery

No hope for you alone
Kept out of sight
Unseen, disowned
By society
Salvage you identity
You cannot life off charity
This is a high price to pay
For being led astray
No feeling here but apathy
Can't risk emotional injure
No time for thought or sentiment

No hope for you alone
Kept out of sight
Unseen, disowned
By society
No hope for you alone
Kept out of sight
Unseen, disowned
By societyback to top
False Ideals
Invented by the human mind
Not knowing what was real
What sort of god lets people die?
Yet still to him you kneel
Only hypocrites and sinners
Feel they have something to gain
And the old, torn and afflicted
Think that he can heal their pain

What is wrong, why can't these people see?
Ask yourself is it truth or blasphemy?
You will find you cannot face adversity
No more time, such insecurity

Born again your conscience clear
You give your life to him
Renounce those who are faithless
Contentment lies within
Worship what you cannot see
Small minds you can distort
Force fed with false ideals
Why believe what you are taught?

What is wrong, why can't these people see?
Ask yourself is it truth or blasphemy?
You will find you cannot face adversity
No more time, such insecurity

So book in hand you stand and preach
Telling us to repent
Something about a promised land
Or eternal torment
Could this be your vocation
Or another mistake
Just deny provocation
>From this nightmare you'll awake

What is wrong, why can't these people see?
Ask yourself is it truth or blasphemy?
You will find you cannot face adversity
No more time, such insecurityback to top
The Bitter End
Entangled in a web or sordid lies
No hope until I walk with open eyes
The way I feel I can't express
We trust each other less and less

Twisted thoughts and twisted deeds
Ever changing different needs
Never planned it quite like this
No more pain I'm powerless

Do we end it while we can
Or should we make a differing plan?
I cannot treat you like a friend
Must we see it to the bitter end?

Confused don't know which way to go
Carry on, the hatred grows
Never have any kind of peace
Until I find my own release

Do we end it while we can
Or should we make a differing plan?
I cannot treat you like a friend
Must we see it to the bitter end?

Maybe now you'll understand
Or do you need a helping hand?
Time will pass and we will see
We were just not meant to beback to top
Desperate Remedies
Seek the perfect race your knowledge you provide
Is this a worthwhile cause or just genocide?
Torment and despair alone and cast aside
No sympathetic ears to hear their cries
No justice in their world

Competence is no excuse for ignorance
Blameless yet their death has no significance
Sorrow and emotion are a consequence
Their eyes forever closed and you ask why
No justice in their world
Taking liberties with other people's lives
Testing theories to their demise
Could this be--desperate remedies

Fundamental thoughts you try to satisfy
The exception proves the rule and that you verify
This work in time of peace you cannot justify
The only words you ever speak are lives
No justice in their world

Taking liberties with other people's lives
Testing theories to their demise
Could this be--desperate remediesback to top
Kept in the Dark
Black days for humanity
Suffer the pain, the futility
Select few with immunity
Not the case for the majority
Eyes that pierce the world restrained
Healthy will to reveal contained
Questions search for truth remains

What is it you wanna see?
What is it you wanna hear?
Control is all that it can be
Control is what we all should fear

What is it to be?
Is it life or authenticity?
Black is truth or is it white?
Kept in the dark, cannot see the light

Words of power start to infect
Must see through must disconnect
Word of truth we all elect
If truth is dead then resurrect
Green is all that they can see
Their only link with reality
Who controls the monopoly?
Exploitation done professionally

What is it you wanna see?
What is it you wanna hear?
Control is all that it can be
Control is what we all should fear

What is it to be?
Is it life or authenticity?
Black is truth or is it white?
Kept in the dark, cannot see the lightback to top
Black Embrace
Chosen for this brutality
You see no sign you're unaware
this is the start of the atrocity
That will send you far beyond repair

Trapped inside yourself
A dark, lonely place
Because of what you are
Eternal black embrace

You're void of all self-respect
Your dignity has gone
Don't know what you expect
You feel like you're the only one

Trapped inside yourself
A dark, lonely place
Because of what you are
Eternal black embrace

This black cloud hangs over you
Plague you right until your dying day
Always something that you can do
Speak out, don't fade away

Trapped inside yourself
A dark, lonely place
Because of what you are
Eternal black embraceback to top
