Raise the Curtain
(Instrumental)
 
 
Soul Chaser
I feel your life slipping away
I am the darkness
You are my prey
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
I follow every step you take
A shadow in the night

Oh no, it won't be long
I'm the soul chaser
Soul Chaser

Your spirit bleeds
Crawling on its knees
Praying to the lord above
To somehow set him free

Cries are in vain
All that's left is pain
The hand of doom is over you
You'll never get away

Oh no, it won't be long
I'm the soul chaser
Soul Chaser

I feel you slowly weakening
Coming to the end of life, reality I bring
Chasing the light
Here by your side
I squeeze the soul right out of you
And leave you here to die

Oh no, it won't be long
I'm the soul chaser
Soul chaser
 
 
Ten Years
I've been out there
For what feels like a hundred years
Looking for something
To ease the pain
And dry the tears

But I can't find it
I don't like it
I can't change it
Been that way as long as I...

I remember...
So many places I have seen
All the people
Some of them were very strange

In my travels
I've seen faces
Many stages
I wonder how I survived it all

I've lived these lonely days
Ten years has slipped away
Oh no, where did they go
Oh, where did they go

Sometimes I feel like
I'm falling off the edge of the world
No one to catch me
As my mind
It's starting to whirl

It's confusing
I feel I'm losing
Time so precious
I watch the days slip away

Into nothing
That really matters to me
Got my music
You know that's all I really need

Gives me pleasure
Now and forever
It's my freedom
It's something no one can take away

I've lived these lonely days
Ten years has slipped away
Oh no, where did they go
Oh, where did they go
 
 
Father Time
I am the father
I am the keeper of time
I live inside of you
My hands you don't need to wind

I am the father of time
Call me the father of time

I watch the clocks for you
I put the lines on your face
I'm moving quickly
You try to slow down my pace

I am the father of time

Father time
Watch the skies
Father time
Never ever lies
As your years fly by

I am the father
I am the father of time
I twist your souls around
I control all of your lives

I am the father of time
Call me the father...

Father time
Watch the skies
Father time
Never ever lies
As your years fly by
 
 
I Know
Let me tell you
While I'm dreaming
You're there scheming
Right outside my door
Contemplating, manipulating
What do you have in store

And I want to know
What I did what was so damn wrong
Why must you tear apart my soul

Let me tell you
I've been watching
While your plotting
Nowhere left to go

I've been patient many years
Your games are taking toll
I am waiting
While you're playing
All your cards unfold

And I want to know
What I did that was so damn wrong
Why must you tear apart my soul
Oh yeah...

I know, I know
I know, why...
I know, Christ knows
You know why
I know, I know
I just got to fly
Far, far away

And I want to know
Why can't we end this all
Go your way, I'll go mine
I don't want to cry
I don't want to die
I just got to fly away.

So I tell you
I can't stand it
Seemed you planned it
The story's getting old

The only ending
I can see
We both have seen before

We keep trying
We keep lying
On and on it goes

And I want to know
What I did
That was so damn wrong
Why must you tear apart my soul

I don't want to cry
I don't want to die
I just got to fly away
 
 
Big Brother
Look out
You know his eyes are always watching
No doubt
He acts like a friend

Your rights
He keeps twisted turning sideways
I know
It never will end

All of our lives
He's right beside you
He'll misguide you
He's lying again

Big brother
Knowing all our little secrets
Big brother
Even watching while you're sleeping
Big brother
He is with us everyday
Big brother
He will never ever, never ever
Go away...

Hold on
He's master of disguises
Before too long
He'll be in your head
Running around
Filling you with his suggestions
Till you don't know
What's real or pretend

This time
He plays
Has no winners, only sinners
And we are his slaves

Big brother
Knowing all our little secrets
Big brother
Even watching while you're sleeping
Big brother
He is with us everyday
Big brother
He will never ever, never ever
Go away...

He knows
That he's got us
Where he wants us
Electric eyes
Three dimensional lens
Microscope
Magnifying every action
That we make
Right down to the end

Some things never change
It don't matter
Hear his laughter
He's winning the game

Big brother
Knowing all our little secrets
Big brother
Even watching while you're sleeping
Big brother
He is with us everyday
Big brother
He will never ever, never ever
Go away...
 
 
Armageddon
So I guess it all comes down
To this in the end
We made our bed
It's time to lay in it
See it's the way
It's got to be

I can see that times may change
But what's important
Always seems to stay the same
An arrow in the brain
Showing us our reality

'Cause it's the end of time
'Cause it's the end of time
'Cause it's the end of time

None of us prepare to die
It's something that is cut and dry
We all comply
Our biggest fear is our mortality

Still we think that
If we should really try
Maybe we can slow down the hands of time
Is this real or just fantasy

'Cause it's the end of time
'Cause it's the end of time
'Cause it's the end of time
 
 
Soldier
Wake up in the morning
I struggle to my feet
One old friend
One new hope
Won't accept defeat

To the mirror
Dim the light
'Cause it won't lie
Will she even recognize me
Right before her eyes

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
No don't look back
How it's gonna be
I'm on a one way track
On a road back at light speed

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
I can't look back

Can't read the paper
So far too close to home
Will I spend my last days
Scarred and all alone
To serve my country
Do what's right
A pledge I swore
Now deemed unfit
For my new life
Fighting someone else's war

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
No don't look back
How it's gonna be
I'm on a one way track
On a road back at light speed

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
I can't look back

Can't wait to see you baby
I'm coming home this time to say
Everyone is bound to see
My youth is worn away
I'll be hoping
But I'll accept what you decide
Can a heart
Help eyes to see
The beauty still inside

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
I can't look back
How it's gonna be

I'm on a one way track
On a road back at light speed

If it's up to me
There would be no looking back
I can't look back
 
 
Stalker
I see clear in the darkness
I watch every move you make
I know we are meant to be
So I'll just
Walk talk laugh play the game of someone sane
I sit and wait but you never call

And I live this lie
That I can't deny

You are someone I dream of
You are someone I need to touch and feel
And you, while you're dreaming
I am outside creeping
So much to do

I create circumstances
Tell you things I'd like to do
Gotta keep you in my precious life
So I'll just spin the wheel
See how I feel
My obsession with you
I keep concealed
It's something I got to keep inside

And I take delight
Seeing you
So, so terrified
And you
While you're sleeping
I am outside creeping
The whole night through
And I can see you weeping
I'd rather hear you screaming
So much to do
 
 
The Witch
You, you are my life
You're the princess of darkness
That's always right here by my side
And it's how you make me feel
As long as I have you here with me
I know I can deal

The pleasures that you bring
You are my everything
And all I can say is
Don't go away
I will lie and I'll cheat and I'll steal
If that's what it takes
To have you
Here next to me
It's only the time that I'm with you
That I'm really me
Can you see with this hold that you seem to have
On me I'll never be free

I am your slave
I'm sure that you're gonna be with me
Till I'm in my grave

You watch me as I die
No tears will fill your eyes
And all I can say is
Don't go away
I will lie and I'll cheat and I'll steal
If that's what it takes
To see you
Just one more time
I know that if you're here with me
I'll be fine
 
 
Can't Get Away
Darkness now is all I see
Since you put your spell on me
You're always right
I'm always wrong
And I can't take it anymore

But I...
Never could stop on a dime
Never could quite find the time
To tell you...

I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you

And somehow oh yeah baby

Sadness now is all I feel
You know these feelings are so real
How much longer can I go on
Before my feelings for you are gone

But I...
Never could stop on a dime
Never could quite find the time
To tell you...

I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you
I'm still holding on to you

And somehow oh yeah baby
And I know deep inside
I'm fool for your love
I can't hide from the truth
So I guess I'll give up

And I got to get stronger inside
Got to start changing the tide
Stop drinking away my life
But I know...
I can't get away
No, I can't get away
No, I can't get away
No, I can't get away
