I Seek No Other Life
No promises hold me now
No time and no place is announced
The thousands that worry how
They're simply obsessed with their plans

Inside the walls come down
Outside the rains fall down

I've told you a thousand times
The time and the place must be now
My friends let's not worry how
We simply let rip at their plans

Inside the walls come down
Outside the rains fall down

I live today - I live tonight
I stand alone and I alone decide what's right
So when tonight has come
Just when the hunt is on
I seek no other life

No promises hold me
Now no time and no place is announced
My friend let's not worry how
We simply let rip at their plans
 
 
High And Low
I have feared life enough to hide in sorrow
I have lived most my life inside my mind
I always thought there'd be time come tomorrow
I'd find you friend and to this end I'd start my life and go
High and low, high and low

Now I'm here life is clearly light and shadow
Nothing can stop me from leaving now
The darkness starts to fade
Now I'm told there's no tomorrow
Nowhere left to go, nowhere left to go

High and low

You can be given too much time
I may be leaving soon but I'm sure to remember
You can believe me when I say
No one will listen when you pray
No one receiving

High and low
 
 
Sealing My Fate
You and I we're worlds apart
But here we are
Like a night awaiting storm
We know we are
Meant to walk beside the beast
With hollow hearts
Left to brave a night of stars

Trailing behind I kept eye on a sky
Painted in tears and the blood of the fallen
Line after line of this endless detail
Facing the storm of the dreams they have stolen

Follow them blindly, you'll die
This night will decide where our company lies
Follow them blindly you'll die

Sealing my fate I volunteer and now I drift among the stars
They said they'd meet us here to turn the final key

Silent we glide through this star-studded night
Facing the years and the paths we have chosen
Night after night and we know it prevails
Line after line and the faces are frozen

Follow them blindly, you'll die
This night will decide where our company lies
Follow them blindly you'll die

Sealing my fate I volunteer and now I drift among the stars
They said they'd meet us here to turn the final key

Follow them blindly, you'll die
This night will decide where your destiny lies
 
 
Temple of the Sun
(Instrumental)
 
 
Akhenaton
Rising in the desert a temple of the sun
I am forgiving so come to me
City in the sun
Dancing shadows stir the night
Powers move and shift
And I'll rise again

With the passing of time
Like the ever-breathing Nile
I shall rise again
Like the stars, the moon, the sun
When all seasons come undone
I shall rise again

Lift your eyes and see I hold the blackened sky
To wake the sun and welcome morning
And when you see the magic light brings to your eyes
You know I was - I am and, oh, I shall become I shall become

With the passing of time
Like the ever-breathing Nile
I shall rise again
Like the stars, the moon, the sun
When all seasons come undone
I shall rise again

Tell me you're the son of the sun
Tell me you're the son of the sun
Tell me you're the son of the sun
Akhenaton
 
 
My Mystic Mind
Ten times the time it took
To open up my mind
Is the time I've lived without myself
As I let the inside out
And now I see me everywhere
Yet every time I turn
The mirror changes faces
And the faces always tell me

You dream - you hurt
Life is twice divided
We live and yearn
To fill the void inside
You dream to learn fate is undecided
But live and learn
Nothing's on your side

Some say I had it coming all along
Some says it's everywhere and nothing's ever wrong
My mystic mind twists my dreams and turns
Tells me I will burn
Tells me I will burn

Ten times the madness grows
And it beckons all along
Familiar faces everywhere
But their names are all so wrong
I love the word "intention"
An extension of the soul
And though I find I'm losing mine
I intend to save you all

You dream - you hurt
Life is twice divided
We live and yearn
To fill the void inside
You dream to learn fate is undecided

Some say I had it coming all along
Some says it's everywhere and nothing's ever wrong
My mystic mind twists my dreams and turns
Tells me I will burn
Tells me I will burn

Some say I had it coming all along
Some says it's everywhere and nothing's ever wrong
My mystic mind twists my dreams and turns
Tells me I will burn
Twists my dreams and turns
Tells me I will burn...
 
 
Trail of Murder
Out in the desert the sun and burning sand
I left your message now I hold out both my hands
As you just shake your head I know it's understood
You never listen but I say I think you should

Some lie! Some lie! Cover up a trail of murder
This operation so bold yet still sublime
Around - around, tailor-made to suit your purpose
Don't believe what you've been told
We've nothing left at all

Stone cold and reckless messiah's burning land
I got your message got it holed up in my hands
It's all just shake 'n' bake I hope it's understood
Some never listen but I say I think you should

Some lie! Some lie! Cover up a trail of murder
This operation so bold yet still sublime
Around - around tailor-made to suit your purpose
Don't believe what you've been told
We've nothing left at all

Shards and splinters in my soul
Bloody trail of murder still
You think you're in control
But this trail goes further
 
 
As Daylight Breaks
I'm sorry dear
I know I've failed you once again
Tell me what's this truth
That can't be told?
I can't go on

It is not what it used to be
It's just life you know I've lost the dream
The feeble fire of a broken soul
Life expires it flickers in the cold

All this seems so never ending
Drifting with the wind
The writing's on the wall
As daylight breaks
A thousand fallen angels
Shed their tears in vain
Against the wind the march goes on

When I'm alone
I cry and hope that you're ok
I know what I should do
But always fail
Words won't help you
And the guilt is mine to bear
I see my bitter end my love
This love won't change

And as the days grow dark
As hope gives way to night
A darkness settles over me
Just one shred left of light
This love...

All this seems so never ending
Whispers on the wind
The writings on the wall
As daylight breaks
A thousand fallen angels
Spread their wings and soar
Into the wind till they fall

And feel the fire
Burning in their souls
To find desire
A treasure in the cold

All this seems so never ending
Whispers in the wind
The writings on the wall
As daylight breaks
A thousand fallen angels
Spread their wings and sing
Of hope that soars
As daylight breaks
 
 
Someone Else's Life
You pull me in and hold me close
I can feel your beating heart
This pounding pain brings me back again
It's a constant race on your part

Please be kind we're out here alone
This life's the one constant I know
Given time and a true, open mind
You'll see how I live inside
And I can show you how

I turn reality away
So I can live another day
No matter where I turn
I'm leaving everything behind
And turn to dreams of every kind
'Cause when I'm there
I'm not living someone else's life

To leave this world reflected in your eye
Can't wait another day
Can't you see? I'm not free
Reality imposed its will on me

Try facing life without a heartbeat
Try chasing demons of your own
Breaking in to close an open mind
To find you're trapped inside alone

I turn reality away
So I can live another day
No matter where I turn
I'm leaving everything behind
And turn to dreams of every kind
'Cause when I'm there
I'm not living someone else's life

But here's the world again
Wave after wave of crushing pain
Wave after wave after wave
After wave after wave
 
 
Setting Fire to the Earth
Tell me what I see here
'Cause I'm lost
Looking for a future
For a time I saw it clearly
And we nearly had it all
But now it's gone
And I can see us failing

They've been watching
They've been waiting
They've been biding their time

So when the lights go out you'd better run
Nothing you can do here son just run
Live to fight another day tomorrow
Fight for all you're worth, but now you run
Somewhere down the line you'll find the one
Somewhere in the past you find the order
Setting fire setting fire to the earth

There's no time, believe me
But I'm here back in time to help you
There's a time to make a statement
There's a time to set things straight

They've been watching
They've been waiting
They've been biding their time

So when the lights go out you'd better run
Nothing you can do here son just run
Live to fight another day tomorrow
Fight for all you're worth, but now you run
Somewhere down the line you'll find the one
Somewhere in the past you find the order
Setting fire setting fire to the earth
 
 
Older And Wiser
Don't like society?
Then you can't help but see
You've rabid dogs upon your heels
Not feeling like the rest?
Just take another test
Gauge each emotion that you feel

Keep in mind
9 out of 10 ain't bad

Trapped in bureaucracy
Or lost in ecstasy?
No matter which I'm sure you'll yearn
To learn that heresy
And acts of god and me
Are machinations of this world

Keep in mind
9 out of 10 ain't bad

What do you do when all that's coming down on you
Says that you're older - you're older
And every day you see the lines on every face
And you feel older but none the wiser

Enraged by apathy cold hearts in atrophy
A generation quite disturbed
The iron curtain fell now life's a private hell
Perpetually unperturbed

Keep in mind
9 out of 10 ain't bad

What do you do when all that's coming down on you
Says that you're older - you're older
And every day you see the lines on every face
And you feel older but none the wiser

Tell me it's true - why don't you
Tell me it's true as we grow older
We should grow bolder
Tell me it's true 'cause I would love to be like you
Older and wiser, too
 
 
Listen to the Storm
Come share the night with me and dream of home
Alive at least a nightmare ending
Somewhere in the darkness there's a place for us
Distant past, forgotten future
Waiting now to

Talk to you talk to you
Today you open your mind
And hear it talk to you
This storm is yours to find
Let it talk to you
Listen to the storm

Stay listen to the storm inside of me
When I'm alone it rages strong
And I'm afraid there's something wrong I can't make right
Listen to the storm and tell me
I can talk to

Talk to you talk to you
Today you open your mind
And hear it talk to you
This storm is yours to find
Let it talk to you
Listen to the storm

Somewhere in the darkness there's a place for us
Listen to the storm then brave the dark
No one lives forever yet you carry on
Night after night after night after night until dawn
 
 
Fly on
Once your world was a happy place
Thought you knew what it would bring
Every part of you every single play
There were a million ways to win
I saw the tears in your eyes my love
As you threw your cards away
Oh, the pain you're in the stakes went up
As your heart got in the way
And I say ride out, ride free

Fly on like you own the sky
You can ride upon the wind
Fly on like the eagle, fly
Ever higher on the wind

But once the sorrow fades
And your pain is tucked away
Think your world can wear another face
You might as well just stay
And you marvel at the star-lit sky
As we gaze into the night
At this moment I feel lost in time
I just hope we got it right
And I say take heart, take me
 
 
No Son of Mine
(by Genesis.)
Well the key to my survival
Was never in much doubt
The question was how I could keep sane
Trying to find a way out

Things were never easy for me
Peace of mind was hard to fin
And I needed a place where I could hide
Somewhere I could call mine

I didn't think much about it
'Til it started happening all the time
Soon I was living with the fear everyday
Of what might happen that night

I couldn't stand to hear the
Crying of my mother
And I remember when
I swore that, that would be the
Last they'd see of me
And I never went home again

They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang the bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes

He said:
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, no son of mine

Oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
And as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
But where should I go,
And what should I do
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I came here for you

Well the years they passed so slowly
I thought about him everyday
What would I do, if we passed on the street
Would I keep running away

In and out of hiding places
Soon I'd have to face the facts
We'd have to sit down and talk it over
And that would mean going back

They say that time is a healer
And now my wounds are not the same
I rang that bell with my heart in my mouth
I had to hear what he'd say

He sat me down to talk to me
He looked me straight in the eyes

He said:
You're no son, you're no son of mine
You're no son, you're no son of mine
When you walked out, you left us behind
And you're no son, you're no son of mine

Oh, his words how they hurt me, I'll never forget it
And as the time, it went by, I lived to regret it

You're no son, you're no son of mine
But where should I go and what should I do
You're no son, you're no son of mine
But I came here for help, oh I was looking for you
You're no son, you're no son of mine - oh
You're no son - ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah, ha yeah
You're no son, you're no son of mine - oh, oh...
