Phantom Of The Opera: Iron Maiden (Album) -- 1980

“And you know and I know that you ain’t got long now to last.
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past.”
I’ve been looking so long for you now you won’t get away from my grasp
You’ve been living so long in hiding in hiding behind that false mask
And you know and I know that you ain’t got long now to last
Your looks and your feelings are just the remains of your past

You’re standing in the wings, there you wait for the curtain to fall
Knowing the terror and holding you have on us all
Yeah, I know that you’re gonna scratch me, maim me and maul
You know I’m helpless from your mesmerising cat call

Keep your distance, walk away, don’t take his bait
Don’t you stray, don’t fade away
Watch your step, he’s out to get you, come what may
Don’t you stray, from the narrow way

I’m running and hiding in my dreams you’re always there
You’re the Phantom of the Opera, you’re the devil, you’re just out to scare
You damaged my mind and my soul it just floats through the air
You haunt me, you taunt me, you torture me back at your lair

Killers: Killers -- 1981

“Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!”
You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he’s watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs.

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise,
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.
I have no one, I’m bound to destroy all this greed,
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

I can see what a life’s meant to be,
And you’ll never know how I came to forsee, see, see.

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties,
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike.

Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night,
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!
I have found you, and now there is no place to run,
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?!
Oooh yeah, I’ve done it!
YEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHH!

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he’s watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs.
Oooh look out, I’m coming for you!
Ahahahaha!

The Prisoner: The Number Of The Beast -1982

“I’m not a number, I’m a free man.
Live my life where I want to.”
We want information
Information

Who are you?
The new number 2
Who is number 1?
You are number 6
I am not a number! I am a free man!
(Laughter)

I’m on the run, I kill to eat
I’m starving now, feeling dead on my feet
Going all the way, I’m natures beast
Do what I want and do as I please

Run -- Fight -- To breathe -- It’s tough
Now you see me now you don’t
Break the walls I’m coming out

Not a prisoner I’m a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don’t care where the past was
I know where I’m going …out!

If you kill me it’s self defense
And if I kill ya’ then I call it vengeance
Spit in your eye I will defy
You’ll be afraid when I call out your name

Run -- Fight -- To breathe -- It’s gonna be tough
Now you see me now you don’t
Break the walls I’m coming out

Not a prisoner I’m a free man
And my blood is my own now
Don’t care where the past was
I know where I’m going

I’m not a number I’m a free man
Live my life where I want to
You’d better scratch me from your black book
Cause’ I’ll run rings around you

Flight of Icarus: Piece Of Mind (1983)

“As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly!”
As the sun breaks, above the ground
An old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms, to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still

His eyes are ablaze
See the madman in his gaze

Fly on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly, touch the sun

Yeah
Fly, on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly, touch the sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly

Fly as high as the sun

Sun and Steel: Piece Of Mind (1983)

“Death in life is your ideal,
Life is like a wheel rolling on and on.”
Well, you killed your first man at 13
Killer instinct, Animal supreme
By 16 you had learned to fight
The way of the warrior, you took it as your right

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal
Life is like a wheel

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal
Life is like a wheel

Through earth and water, fire and wind
You came at last -- nothing was the end
Make a cut by fire and stones
Take you and your blade and break you both
In two -- break you both in two

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal
Life is like a wheel

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal
Life is like a wheel rolling on and on

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal
Life is like a wheel

Sunlight, falling on your steel
Death in life is your ideal

Life is like a wheel

Die With Your Boots On: Piece Of Mind (1983)

“No point asking when it is,
No point asking who’s to go,
No point asking what’s the game,
No point asking who’s to blame,”
Another Prophet of Disaster
Who says the ship is lost
Another Prophet of Disaster
Leaving you to count the cost
Taunting us with Visions
Afflicting us with fear
Predicting War for millions
In the hope that one appears

No point asking when it is
No point asking who’s to go
No point asking what’s the game
No point asking who’s to blame
‘Cos if you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
‘Cos if you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
If you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
If you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die

If you’re gonna die, die with your boots on
If you’re gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you’re gonna die, you’re gonna die

If you’re gonna die, die with your boots on
If you’re gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you’re gonna die, you’re gonna die

13 the Beast is Rising
The Frenchman did surmise
Through earthquakes and starvation
The Warlord will arise
Terror, Death, Destruction
Pour from the Eastern sands
But the truth of all predictions
Is always in your hands

No point asking when it is
No point asking who’s to go
No point asking what’s the game
No point asking who’s to blame
‘Cos if you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
‘Cos if you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
If you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die
If you’re gonna die, if you’re gonna die

You’re gonna die, die with your boots on
If you’re gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you’re gonna die, you’re gonna die

You’re gonna die, die with your boots on
If you’re gonna try, well stick around
Gonna cry, just move along
If you’re gonna die, you’re gonna die

They die with their boots on
Yes they die

The day, they die with their boots on
The day we die, we die, we die, we die, we die

No point asking when it is
No point asking who’s to go
No point asking what’s the game
No point asking who’s to blame

Rime of The Ancient Mariner: Powerslave (1984)

“To teach God’s word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made.”
Hear the rime of the Ancient Mariner
See his eye as he stops one of three
Mesmerises one of the wedding guests
Stay here and listen to the nightmares of the Sea

And the music plays on, as the bride passes by
Caught by his spell and the Mariner tells his tale

Driven south to the land of the snow and ice
To a place where nobody’s been
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross
Hailed in God’s name, hoping good luck it brings

And the ship sails on, back to the North
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on

The mariner kills the bird of good omen
His shipmates cry against what he’s done
But when the fog clears, they justify him
And make themselves a part of the crime

Sailing on and on and North across the sea
Sailing on and on and North ’til all is calm

The albatross begins with its vengeance
A terrible curse a thirst has begun
His shipmates blame bad luck on the Mariner
About his neck, the dead bird is hung

And the curse goes on and on and on at sea
And the thirst goes on and on for them and me

“Day after day, day after day, we stuck nor breath nor motion
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink”

There, calls the mariner there comes a ship over the line
But how can she sail with no wind in her sails and no tide

See onward she comes
Onwards she nears, out of the sun
See she has no crew
She has no life, wait but there’s two

Death and she Life in Death, they throw their dice for the crew
She wins the Mariner and he belongs to her now

Then crew one by one
They drop down dead, two hundred men
She she, Life in Death
She lets him live, her chosen one

“One after one by the star dogged moon,
Too quick for groan or sigh
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
And cursed me with his eye.
Four times fifty living men
(And I heard nor sigh nor groan),
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
They dropped down one by one.”

The curse it lives on in their eyes
The Mariner he wished he’d die
Along with the sea creatures
But they lived on, so did he

And by the light of the moon
He prays for their beauty not doom
With heart he blesses them
God’s creatures all of them too

Then the spell starts to break
The albatross falls from his neck
Sinks down like lead into the Sea
Then down in falls comes the rain

Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
See them stir and they start to rise
Bodies lifted by good spirits
None of them speak and they’re lifeless in their eyes

And revenge is still sought, penance starts again
Cast into a trance and the nightmare carries on

Now the curse is finally lifted
And the Mariner sights his home
Spirits go from the long dead bodies
Form their own light and the Mariner’s left alone

And then a boat came sailing towards him
It was a joy he could not believe
The Pilot’s boat, his son and the hermit
Penance of life will fall onto him

And the ship it sinks like lead into the sea
And the hermit shrives the mariner of his sins

The Mariner’s bound to tell of his story
To tell his tale wherever he goes
To teach God’s word by his own example
That we must love all things that God made

And the wedding guest’s a sad and wiser man
And the tale goes on and on and on and on

Back In The Village: Powerslave (1984)

“Questions are a burden,
And answers are a prison for oneself.”
Turn the spotlights on the people
Switch the dial and eat the worm
Take your chances, kill the engine
Drop your bombs and let it burn

White flags shot to ribbons,
The truce in Black and Burned.
Shellshock in the kitchen.
Tables overturned

(Chorus)
Back in the village again
In the village,
I’m back in the village again.

Throwing dice now, rolling loaded
I see sixes all the way,
In a black hole and I’m spinning
As my wings get shot away.

Questions are a burden
And answers are a prison for oneself
Shellshock in the kitchen
Tables start to burn.

(Chorus)
Back in the village again
In the village,
I’m back in the village again.

No breaks on the inside,
Paper cats and burning barns,
There’s fox among the chickens,
And a killer in the hounds.

Questions are a burden
And answers are a prison for oneself
Shellshock in the kitchen
Tables start to burn.

(Chorus)
Back in the village again
In the village,
I’m back in the village again.

But still we walk into the valley
And others try to kill the inner flame
We’re burning brighter than before
I don’t have a number, I’M A NAME!

Back in the village again
In the village
I’m back in the village again
Back in the village again
In the village

I’m back in the village
Back in the village
Back in the village again.

Wasted Years: Somewhere In Time (1986)

“Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years,
Face up; make your stand and realize you’re living in the golden years.”
From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
I’m travellin’ on, far and wide
But now it seems, I’m just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn’t me but
Someone else

I close my eyes, and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain’t it funny how it is, you never miss it ’til it’s
Gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be ’til my
Dying day

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for
Those wasted years
Face up… make your stand
And realise you’re living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can’t ease this pain, so easily
When you can’t find the words to say it’s hard to
Make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry and throw my
Hands up to the sky

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for
Those wasted years
Face up… make your stand
And realise you’re living in the golden years

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for
Those wasted years
Face up… make your stand
And realise you’re living in the golden years

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for
Those wasted years
Face up… make your stand
And realise you’re living in the golden years

The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner: Somewhere In Time (1986)

“I’ve got to keep going, be strong,
Must be so determined and push myself on.”
The tough of the track
With the wind
And the rain that’s beating down on
Your back
Your heart’s beating loud
And goes on getting louder
And goes on even more ’til the
Sound is ringing in your head
With every step you tread
And every breath you take
Determination
Makes you run never stop
Got to win got to run ’til you drop
Keep the pace hold the race
Your mind is getting clearer
You’re over half way there
But the miles they never seem to end
As if you’re in a dream
Not getting anywhere
It seems so futile

(Chorus)
Run on and on
Run on and on
The loneliness of the long distance runner

I’ve got to keep running the course
I’ve got to keep running and win at
All costs
I’ve got to keep going be strong
Must be so determined and push myself on

Run over stiles across fields
Turn to look at who’s on your heels
Way ahead of the field
The line is getting nearer but do
You want the glory that goes
You reach the final stretch
Ideals are just a trace
You feel like throwing the race
It’s all so futile

Heaven Can Wait: Somewhere In Time (1986)

“I have a lust for the Earth below
And Hell itself is my only foe
‘Cause I’ve no fear of dying
I’ll go when I’m good and ready.”
Can’t understand what is happening to me
This isn’t real this is only a dream
But I never have felt, no I never have felt this
way before
I’m looking down on my body below
I lie asleep in the midst of a dream
Is it now could it be the Angel of Death has come for me
I can’t believe that really my time has come
I don’t feel ready there’s so much left undone
And it’s my soul and I’m not gonna let it get away

(Chorus:)
Heaven can wait / Heaven can wait
Heaven can wait / Heaven can wait ’til another day

I have a lust for the Earth below
And Hell itself is my only foe
‘Cause I’ve no fear of dying
I’ll go when I’m good and ready
I snatch a glimpse of the lights eternal rays
I see a tunnel I stand amazed
At all of the people standing there in front of me
Into the paths of rightness I’ll be led
Is this the place where the living join the dead
I wish I knew this was only just a nightmare

(Chorus:)

Take my hand I’ll lead you to the promised land
Take my hand I’ll give you immortality
Eternal youth I’ll take you to the other side
To see the truth the path for you is decided

My body tingles I feel so strange
I feel so tired I feel so drained
And I’m wondering if I’ll ever be the same again
Is this in limbo or Heaven or Hell
Maybe I’m going down there as well
I can’t accept my soul will drift forever
I feel myself floating back down to Earth
So could this be the hour of my rebirth
Or have I died or will I wake from dreaming?

I say you’ll pay for this mischief
In this world or the next
Oh and then he fixed me with a freezing glance
And the hell fires raged in his eyes
He said you wanna know the truth son?

Your soul’s gonna burn in a lake of fire

Infinite Dreams: Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (1988)

“I’d like to think that when I die,
I’d get a chance another time,
And to return and live again,
Reincarnate, play the game,
Again and again and again.”
Infinite dreams I can’t deny them
Infinity is hard to comprehend
I couldn’t hear those screams
Even in my wildest dreams

Suffocation waking in a sweat
Scared to fall asleep again
In case the dream begins again
Someone chasing I cannot move
Standing rigid a nightmare’s statue
What a dream when will it end
And will it transcend?

Restless sleep the minds in turmoil
One nightmare ends another fertile
It’s getting to me so scared to sleep
But scared to wake now, in too deep.

Even though it’s reached new heights
I’d rather like the restless nights
It makes me wonder it makes me think
There’s more to this I’m on the brink
It’s not the fear of what’s beyond
It’s just that I might not respond
I have an interest almost craving
But would I like to get too far in?

Can’t all be coincidence
Too many things are evident
You tell me you’re an unbeliever
Spiritualists? Well me I’m neither
Wouldn’t you like to know
The truth?
Oh what’s out there to have the proof
And find out just which side
You’re on
Where would you end in Heaven or
In Hell?

Help me. Help me to find my true
Self without seeing the future
Save me, save me from torturing
Myself even within my dreams

There’s got to be just more to it than this
Or tell me why do we exist
I’d like to think that when I die
I’d get a chance another time
And to return and live again
Reincarnate, play the game
Again and again and again.

When it’s time to meet the maker,
There’s time to live but isn’t it strange?
That as soon as you’re born you’re dying.”
Feel the sweat break on my brow
Is it me or is it shadows that are
Dancing on the walls.
Is this dream or is it now
Is this a vision or normality I see
Before my eyes.

I wonder why I wonder how
That it seems the powers getting stronger
Every day
I feel a strength an inner fire
But I’m scared I won’t be able to control it anymore

There’s a time to live and a time to die
When it’s time to meet the maker
There’s time to live but isn’t it strange
That as soon as you’re born you’re dying.

Just by looking through your eyes
He could see the future penetrating right
In through your mind
See the truth and see your lies
But for all his power couldn’t foresee his own demise

There’s time to live and time to die
When it’s time to meet the maker
There’s time to live but isn’t it strange
That as soon as you’re born you’re dying…

Or they the lucky ones who are taken away
Is it a hand on your shoulder from the Lord above
Or the Devil himself come to give you a shove.

A tyrant tries again
Just what the hell is going on ?
When will it ever end ?

You watch the red sun rise
We take these things for granted
But somewhere someone’s dying

Just waiting for disease to strike

No food, no love, no seed, childhoods end.

“Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator, my God’ll lay my soul to rest.”
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Silhouettes stand against the sky
One in front with a cross held high
Come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Brought by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubts in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the test
Nothing to do but await what is coming

Why then is God still protecting me
Even when I don’t deserve it
Though I am blessed with an inner strength
Some they would call it a penance
Why am I meant to face this alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to God won’t keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise

They’ll be saying their prayers when the moment comes
There’ll be penance to pay when it’s judgement day
And the guilty’ll bleed when the moment comes
They’ll be coming to claim, take your soul away

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

They’ll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They’ll be bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world be blessed
My creator, my God’ll lay my soul to rest

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

The sign of the cross

Lost the love of heaven above
Chose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Came to wash my sins away

The Clansman: Virtual XI (1998)

“It is right to believe
In the need to be free
It’s a time when you die
And without asking why.”
Wake alone in the hills
With the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud
And be free and a race
That is part of a clan
And to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe
So pure and so clean

When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel
Just to be free

It is right to believe
In the need to be free
It’s a time when you die
And without asking why
Can’t you see what they do
They are grinding us down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman…

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

It’s a time wrough with fear
It’s a land wrough with change
Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
They would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
Has been written in chains

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I’ll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I swear to defend
And we’ll fight to the end
And I swear that I’ll never
Be taken alive
And I know that we’ll stand
And we’ll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns
Will be born free

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I’ll take what I want
I am the clansman…

Freedom

(x2)
No, no we can’t let them take anymore
No we can’t let them take anymore
We’ve the land of the free

No, no we can’t let them take anymore
No we can’t let them take anymore
No we can’t let them take anymore
We’ve the land of the free

Oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

It is right to believe
In the need to be free
It’s a time when you die
And without asking why
Can’t you see what they do
They are grinding us down
They are taking our land
That belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just a want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman…

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I’ll take what is mine
I am the clansman…

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I’ll take what is mine
I am the clansman…

Blood Brothers: Brave New World (2000)

“Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate’s own hand.”
And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you’d expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of me

Just for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned
Not if you’re taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burned

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

There are times when I feel I’m afraid for the world
There are times I’m ashamed of us all
When you’re floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad

Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate’s own hand

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

When you think that we’ve used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we’re living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life….

The Thin Line Between Love and Hate: Brave New World (2000)

“I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever.”
When a person turns to wrong, is it a want to be, belong?
Part of things at any cost, at what price a life is lost

At what point do we begin, fighter spirit a will to win
But what makes a man decide, take the wrong or righteous road

There’s a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There’s a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

We all like to put the blame on society these days
But what kind of good or bad a new generation brings

Sometimes take just more than that to survive be good at heart
There is evil in some of us no matter what will never change

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

Just a few small tears between someone happy and one sad
Just a thin line drawn between being a genius or insane

At what age begin to learn of which way out we will turn
There’s a long and winding road and the trail is there to burn

There’s a thin line between love and hate
Wider divide that you can see between good and bad
There’s a grey place between black and white
But everyone does have the right to choose the path that he takes

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

I will hope, my soul will fly, so I will live forever
Heart will die, my soul will fly, and I will live forever

The thin line between love and hate

The thin line between love and hate

Wildest Dreams: Dance of Death (2003)

“When I’m feeling down and low,
I vow I’ll never be the same again,
I just remember what I am,
And visualise just what I’m gonna be.”
I’m gonna organize some changes in my life
I’m gonna exorcise the demons of my past
I’m gonna take the car and hit the open road
I’m feeling ready to just open up and go

And I just feel I can be anything
That all I might ever wish to be
And fantasize just what I want to be
Make my wildest dreams come true

I’m on my way
Out on my own again
I’m on my way
Out on the road again

When I remember back to how that things just used to be
And I was stuck inside a shroud of misery
I felt I’d disappeared so deep inside myself
I couldn’t find a way to break away my hell

When I’m feeling down and low
I vow I’ll never be the same again
I just remember what I am
And visualize just what I’m gonna be

I’m on my way
Out on my own again
I’m on my way
Out on the road again

I’m on my way
Out on my own again
I’m on my way
I’m gonna breakaway

Age Of Innocence: Dance Of Death (2003)

“So we can only get one chance, can we take it?
And we only got one life, can’t exchange it
Can we hold on to what we have, don’t replace it.”
I can’t be compromising in my thoughts no more
I can’t prevent the times my anger fills my heart
I can’t be sympathizing with a new lost cause
I feel I’ve lost my patience with the world and all

And all the politicians and their hollow promises
And all the lies, deceit and shame that goes with it
The working man pays everything for their mistakes
And with his life too if there was to be a war

(Chorus)
So we can only get one chance, can we take it?
And we only got one life, can’t exchange it
Can we hold on to what we have, don’t replace it
The age of innocence is fading like an old dream

A life of petty crime gets punished with a holiday
The victims’ mind are scarred for life most everyday
Assailants know just how much further they can go
They know the laws are soft, conviction chances low

(Repeat chorus)

You can’t protect yourselves even in your own home
For fear of vigilante cries, the victims wipe their eyes
So now the criminal they launch right in our face
Judical system lets them do it, a disgrace

Despondent public worries, where it will all end?
We can’t protect ourselves, our kids from the crime trend
We cannot even warn each other of evil in our midst
They have more rights than us, you cannot call that just

(Repeat chorus)

Different World: A Matter Of Life And Death (2006)

“I would like you to know,
When you see the simple things,
To appreciate this life,
It’s not too late to learn.”
You lead me on the path
Keep showing me the way
I feel a little lost
A little strange today

I think I’ll take a hold
Of whatever comes my way
Then we’ll see what happens
Take it day by day

I thought I had it all
I had it all worked out
Just what my future held
That there would be no doubt

But then the card came up
And I took another turn
But I don’t know if it’s
Fulfillment that I yearn

Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world

I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It’s not too late to learn

Don’t want to be here
Somewhere I’d rather be
But when I get there
I might find it’s not for me

Don’t know what I want
Or where I want to be
I’m feeling more confused
The more the days go by

Out Of The Shadows: A Matter Of Life And Death (2006)

“Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain,
But we must endure it to live again.”
Hold a halo round the world
Golden is the day
Princess of the Universe
Your burden is the way
So there is no better time
Who will be born today
A gypsy child at day break
A king for a day

Out of the Shadows and into the sun
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain
But we must endure it to live again

Dusty dreams in fading daylight
Flicker on the walls
Nothing new your life’s adrift
What purpose to it all?
Eyes are closed and death is calling
Reaching out its hand
Call upon the starlight to surround you

Out of the Shadows and into the sun
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain
But we must endure it to live again

Out of the Shadows and into the sun
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain
But we must endure it to live again

Out of the Shadows and into the sun
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain
But we must endure it to live again

Out of the Shadows and into the sun
Dreams of the past as the old ways are done
Oh there is beauty and surely there is pain
But we must endure it to live again

Starblind: The Final Frontier (2010)

“Take my eyes for what I’ve seen
I will give my sight to you
You are free to choose whatever
Life to live or life to lose.”
Take my eyes the things I’ve seen in this world coming to an end
My reflection fades, I’m weary of these earthly bones and skin
You may pass through me and leave no trace, I have no mortal face
Solar winds are whispering, you may hear me call

We can shed our skins and swim into the darkened void beyond
We will dance among the world that orbit stars that aren’t our sun
All the oxygen that trapped us in a carbon spider’s web
Solar winds are whispering, you may hear the sirens of the dead

Left the elders to their parley meant to satisfy our lust
Leaving Damocles still hanging over all their promised trust
Walk away from freedoms offered by their jailers in their cage
Step into the light startripping over mortals in their rage

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We are the light that brings the end of night

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We are, with the Goddess of the sun tonight

The preacher loses face with Christ
Religion’s cruel device is gone
Empty flesh and hallow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone

The crucible of pain will forge
The blanks of sin, begin again
You are free to choose a life to live
Or one that’s left to lose

Virgins in the teeth of God are meat and drink to feed the damned
You may pass through me and I will feel the life that you live less
Step into my light startripping, we will rage against the night
Walk away from comfort offered by your citizens of death

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We are the light that brings the end of night

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We’re one with the goddess of the sun tonight

Take my eyes for what I’ve seen
I will give my sight to you
You are free to choose whatever
Life to live or life to lose

Whatever God, you know
He knows you, better than you believe
In your once and future grave
You’ll fall endlessly deceived

Look into our face reflected in the moon glow in your eyes
Remember you can choose to look but not to see and waste your hours
You believe you have the time but I tell you your time is short
See your past and future all the same and it cannot be bought

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We are the light that brings the end of night

Starblind -- with sun
The stars are one
We’re one with the Goddess of the sun tonight

Take my eyes for what I’ve seen
I will give my sight to you
You are free to choose whatever
Life to live or life to lose

Whatever God you know
He knows you better than you believe
In your once and future grave
You’ll fall endlessly deceived

The preacher loses face with Christ
Religion’s cruel device is gone
Empty flesh and hollow bones
Make pacts of love but die alone

The crucible of pain will forge
The blanks of sin, begin again
You are free to choose a life to live

The Man Who Would Be King: The Final Frontier (2010)

“Pushed himself to the limits,
He had to strive for all the harder things in life.
But what the cost to give in now?
His life, his time are the only things that he has.”
As he travels on the beast of burden,
Moving up along the mountainside,
As he gazes, looking down the valley,
No regrets but his pride.

As he journeys across mountain passes,
Insignificance sweeps overhand,
His reflection of the beauty around him,
Feeling empty inside.

He is running from his wildest thoughts,
He is running from his everything,
He is looking now to find something,
Hoping he could be saved.

He’s searching for the answer now!
It’s something that he’s managed to avoid up ’till now.
Real conviction that he craves,
He needs to find the answer sooner than later.

Pushed himself to the limits,
He had to strive for all the harder things in life.
But what the cost to give in now?
His life, his time are the only things that he has.

Life is is not a rehearsal, only has this, the one chance to get it right.
Living really is the only way to know.
Maybe one day they’ll forgive him what he’s done,
Of all the pain of lying too early in the grave.

Destiny, no good to hide away,
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away,
Penance now will be his saving grace.

He tries to make his peace with God;
All is forgivable, but he’s left it a little late.
Trying something that he’s not,
Is it possible to change such a lot?

He’s taken someone’s life away,
There’s not a day goes by he regrets what he’s done.
He should have found another way,
But the good book says “An eye for an eye”.

In reflecting on decisions that were made,
On the judgements that will haunt him ’till his grave.
No one has the right to take another life,
But in his mind, he had no choice, so be it.

Destiny, no good to hide away,
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away,
Penance now will be his saving grace.

Destiny, no good to hide away,
Penance now will be his only way.
Understand, no good to run away,
Penance now will be his saving grace.

Far, far away,
The man who would be king.
Far, far away,
The man who would be king.

So far away,
The man who would be king.
So far away,
The man who would be king.

Far, far, away,
The man who would be king.

The Great Unknown: The Book Of Souls (2015)

“Never ending the desires of men
It’ll never be the same or calm again
In a time of changing hearts
And great unknown
It’ll be the damnation and end of us all.”
Winter softly falling to the ground
Calmly waiting don’t you hear a sound
When the world has fallen to the depths below
Where the future’s open and the fear has grown
And the path to follow to the great unknown
Where the dark has fallen and the seed is sown

In the selfish hearts of some
The nightmare’s coming
With the spilling blood of others
Now wringing through
Now the cup is spilling over
Wake to news of death
And the prophecy of sages
Destiny is met
To the depths of human mind
The cry is burning
With the mentor’s anger
Of the lesson ringing true
And for those who live by and are dying by the sword
They will take their ideals with them
Justify their end

Where the fools are lying and the meek are crying
Where the wolves are preying
On the weak alone
Where the sons are dying
Hear their mothers crying
And the distant sound of fire
Begins again

Never ending the desires of men
It’ll never be the same or calm again
In a time of changing hearts
And great unknown
It’ll be the damnation and end of us all

Where the fools are lying
And the meek are crying
Where the wolves are preying
On the weak alone
Where the sons are dying
Hear their mothers crying
And the distant sound of fire begins again

Never ending the desires of men
It’ll never be the same or calm again
In a time of changing hearts
And great unknown
It’ll be the damnation and end of us all

When the world has fallen
And we stand alone…

The Red And The Black: The Book Of Souls (2015)

“Meanwhile we play the waiting game,
The clock is struck the horse is lame.
And when we think that this is done,
Chance your luck a four leafed one.”
The morals of life and the perils of death
Take the wrong way out running out of breath
Meet my match in the afterlife
Suppress the demons that plague the night
A tortured mind is a safe place to go
But the truth lurks down in the dark below
Step inside my inquisitive mind
Are you scared at what you just might find

See myself in the hall of mirrors
A different shape every step I take
A different mind every step of the line
But in the end they are all mine
Laughing sorrow inside your head
Can’t get out just a feeling of dread
I know this burden’s a heavy load
A dark mistake never ending road

The black jack king and the red queen clash
The artful dodger he counts his stash
The joker’s wild like an impish child
While madame fortune she waits inside
The good luck charm is overkill
The tired old soldier says fire at will
Planes overhead go search destroy
The ones below human decoy

I need somebody to save me

Meanwhile we play the waiting game
The clock is struck the horse is lame
And when we think that this is done
Chance your luck a four leafed one
You hedge your bets the battle lost
To wait in vain and count the cost
The thin edged line
Between good and bad
And cast the luck be happy sad

I need somebody to save me

The red and the black
People don’t want the truth
Look in their eyes and you send them away
The red and the black
Fate and hypocrisy
Burden’s a heavy load there is no doubt
The red and the black
All out of luck again
How many chances can anyone have
The red and the black
Treachery out to win
There in the wrong place and at the wrong time

I need somebody to save me
