Kinescope
Won't you come into my parlor, make yourself at home
The kinescope is waiting and you're in for quite a show
Direct your gaze to a device across the room
I think you'll be amazed when you see what it can do

Hidden thoughts, secret fears, things you think I'd never know
Oh friend there's not a single thought I wasn't privy to
A mirror to your soul when you ask it tells the truth
It'll show you all and more than you want it to

There's a world here to show you but so little time to share
The Kinescope is waiting and I've saved a seat for you
There's a world here to show you but so little time to share
The Kinescope is waiting and I've saved a seat for you
Right here

We all deceive ourselves sometimes
Refusing to look at the darkness inside
Examine your soul and you will see
That you're not the one
That you wanted to be

There's a world here to show you but so little time to share
The Kinescope is waiting and I've saved a seat for you
There's a world here to show you but so little time to share
The Kinescope is waiting and I've saved a seat for you
Right here, right here

There is a world that is unseen
Right here
 
 
Funambulism
A seed was sown within my mind and began to lead my heart
It seemed I walked a fine line of benevolence or lust
A time to focus on the goal, I drew a line in the sand
Just how far would I go to see the dream
The dream within my hands

On the hard road now because nothing good is free
And as the sun is rising on another day
Do I know why I have come this way
It's not for me alone, but for another's sake.
My mind begins to clear as the urgency of vision starts to wake...

Surveying the past I see my life unfold before me
But what of this vision that was given to me
Material passions seemed to rule the world I lived in
It was money and power with a sensuous seed
It was hard to walk away!

Straying from a vision while walking through the shadows
Searching for answers making dreams for myself
Time was of the essence and I was quickly fading
But a voice it kept calling, it kept leading me on
Don't you know you've lost your way
Don't let your vision fade away - No!

Walking on a tightrope in the valley of decision
There's so many choices in the chasm below
Behind me is the past and before is the future
But a voice it keeps calling, it keeps leading me on
Don't you know, you hold the key
And that your future lies in Me
 
 
Scape Goat
Let's blame the music world or maybe the gun makers
What about the books and movies, our scape goats they will be
Gaze into the cyber realm and its information sea
Images of Light and darkness, manifest ideologies

Don't you know that you have the power
Entrusted with your children's lives
Let them know that there are no scape goats
Teach them well to know wrong from right

Gaze into the children's eyes, behold a window to the soul
Images of Light and darkness, inner conflict to behold
Government and selfserving people have torn apart the heart of the home
And now we run in search for excuses to give account for the monsters we've made

Don't you know that you have a power
Entrusted with your children's lives
Let them know that there are no scape goats
Teach them well to know wrong from right
Know wrong from right

Government and selfserving people
Have torn apart the heart of the home
And now we run in search for excuses
To give account for the monsters we've made
Don't you know that you have a power
Entrusted with your children's lives
Let them know that there are no scape goats
Teach them well to know wrong from right
No scapegoats, no scapegoats!
 
 
Mad House of Cain
It's a landscape of terror of evil's dark hue
Beset by the glow of an ominous moon
From the forest of nightmares to the garden of death
The stench of the flesh and the blood takes your breath
Trees stand like towers with corpses adorned
There's scores of black roses with venomous thorns
It's a playground for murder, the damned and insane
And deep in it's heart sets the mad house of Cain

Cain is murder incarnate, he hungers for blood
His hate for the living created a flood
From the wine press that sets on the alter of grim
Come the cats of red liquid all filled to the brim
Where killers among mortals bow down to his feet
To bring him their offerings of fresh butchered meat
It's a haven for murder, the damned and insane
A temple of slaughter, the mad house of Cain
 
 
Tale of Fears
The whispering call of evening falls upon the waiting mortal ear
With many tales it never fails to draw upon all your fears
The evidence and circumstance revealed by the mornings light
Would lead one to believe that something evil walks the night

Oh something evil walks this night
In the whispering shadows where it hides
The great deceiver conjures your demise
Oh something evil walks this night

Ancient lore and scripture tells of such things that this may be
The one who filled the heart of Cain
And brought the world calamity
The serpents of the garden, the bright and shining one
The rioter and crucifier of the one begotten Son

Oh something evil walks this night
In the whispering shadows where it hides
The great destroyer conjures you to die
Oh something evil walks this night
Better light your lamp
Better keep the Fire high
For something evil walks this night
It walks this night!

The king of hell destroys with hatred in his eyes
The homicidal flames are raging in his eyes
 
 
Crusade
It was the year 1095 in the heart of France
Summoned by the Papal Decree to the Holy Land
"Drive out the Infadel from the Realm of Promise!"
"Destroy the enemies of Our Lord and restore His kingdom!"
From a heart of darkness came a twisted faith
Reaching to the far east with a burning hate.
The thunder of the drums of war descended on the masses
The Great Commission, forged with steel would bring disaster

Religious lies had taken hold
A war of murder, rape and gold
Blood was flowing through the land
A gospel with an iron hand
A ministry death and hate
Millions chained to its carnal state
Mad with the power to control
This is a church with a dark crusade

Centuries have come and gone since the Crusades
But a brutal conquest has still remained
Oppression of humanity, conjured conviction
Religion and its tyranny will bring destruction
Just sign here on the dotted line
Do what we say and you'll be fine
Your blind devotion is the key
To save your soul eternally
In the bonds of a legalistic state
You'll find a heart in rusted chains
Mad with the power to control
This is a church with a dark crusade

Sound mind and reason have long been dead and crucified
Soul dead self righteous hypocrisy is justified
In the bowels of a prison
Where many souls are laid to waste
You'll find the heart of a church with a dark crusade
 
 
Black Watch
 
 
Of Love And Sorrow
I guess I'll walk alone in the pouring rain
I hold this candle that burns in your name
With every teardrop that falls from my eyes
I can't forget you, your memory never dies
But I can't help a feeling that I've been betrayed
'Cause I'm the one that's left out here in the pouring rain
I feel the touch of a hand that's so familiar
How I long for yesterday, I long for yesterday!

Pain is so real
It's a shame that a heart must feel such a loss
In this world that is cruel, full of storm and ocean
I lost your love when I let you go
I wish that you could have stayed with me
And now you've turned and said goodbye
It's raining tears and my heart is breaking
Something inside me has died
Now that you're gone from my side
And all that is left are these damned memories
Of lost love and gained sorrow

Love is so real... it's a God that is never changing 
And love shall remain in my heart as I keep on living
I lost your love, but I'll let you go
I wish that you could have stayed with me
And even though you've said goodbye
It took some time but my heart is mending
Something inside me's alive
It seems that my soul has survived
Tomorrow will come and I will be free
To love someone, to love another
 
 
The Gathering
I feel the horizon, it's pulling my soul
Onto tomorrow and nobody knows
Destiny called and I answered to her
Oh Ancient One show me the way
The heavens are calling, an empire is falling
Sacred fires are burning, desperate souls are turning

Storm clouds gather as the winds of change are brewing
Angels raging for their Masters' jealous furies

Life is a drama we play on this stage
We race to the climax the end of this age
Spiritual forces defy space and time
Creations integrity fails 
The heavens are calling, an empire is falling
Sacred fires burning, desperate souls are turning

Storm clouds gather as the winds of change are brewing
Angels raging for their Masters' jealous furies

Storm clouds gather as the winds of change are brewing
Angels raging for their Masters' jealous furies
Storm clouds gather as the winds of change are brewing
Angels raging for their Masters' jealous furies
 
 
Never Surrender
Never Surrender
Dawn break another day through a veil of sleepless night 
A heavy heart of pondering in the shadows of my plight 
It was fifteen years ago that a presence came to me 
It was a call to live in song leading to adversity 
But my heart still believes 

I'll never surrender, I won't lose my soul 
Hold onto the dream, I'll never let go 

See this vessel of the soul, it's decaying day by day 
Though this body fails me now there is so much I must say 
Music intertwined with word, watch the miracle occur 
Free the heart release the mind, bring a vision to the blind 
Let the melody preside 
And release the ancient power 
In this quickly fading hour 

I'll never surrender, I won't lose my soul 
Hold onto the dream, I'll never let go 
Never surrender, never let go
 
 
The Bleeding Tree
And now I'll take you to a realm yet unseen
Deep in the forest to a crimson tree
This is the place where a Lion died
His sacred pact with humanity
This blood has a power to heal your wounds
To break the spell of the curses chains
Come bathe in the Lion's blood
The bleeding tree

A pool of blood at the foot of the tree
A heart grows heavy at its beckoning
If you step inside and drift below
There's visions of pain, loss, love and sorrow
This blood has a power that cannot fail
To quench the charm of the serpents trance
Come bathe in the Lion's blood
The bleeding tree

This blood has a power to heal your wounds
To break the spell of the curses chains
Come bathe in the Lion's blood
The bleeding tree

Eloi! Eloi! Lema
 
 
Violent Truth
Trapped in hell, that's where I live
In an endless struggle to survive
Concrete jungle meshed with steel
Will I make it out alive?
Take a walk on the wild side
Take what you want but live in fear
Of a bullets sting or the edge of a knife
People dying ain't that nice?

Look and tell me what do you see?
Brother killing brother in the land of the free
Welcome to hell in the U.S.A.
A nightmare takes the place of the American dream

Helpless junkies burn their brains
With the magic pumping in their veins
Eye of the needle smoke of the pipe
Crack and heroin are God!
Walk the market, place of flesh
Erotic pleasure for a price
Brought down by a deadly plague
The party's over, say goodbye!

Look and tell me what do you see?
Sodom and Gomorrah in the land of the free
Where the demons of the inner sanctum
Breed to kill and bring you
Down to your knees and watch as your city bleeds

The violent truth is what this is
It's an endless struggle to survive
It's time to take the hand of destiny
With the angels of the light cause we got to be free
