The Raven Ride
There's a place where the sun stays low,
And nights when the moon don't glow.
You take a ride into fear,
Have respect for the place you are,
Take stock of your fragile world,
The cliff you hang from is shear.
The friends that you leave behind
Don't have the power to find
What's left of you if you fall
Hold on then to your soul
Climb on, if you're willing to learn
I'll show you how to save your world.

I'm gonna take you on the Raven Ride
We use the shroud of darkness and the power of flight
Like the Shamen, we leave our body behind
We use our souls to fly, The Raven Ride.

Down there where your people fight,
They believe in the freedom rights,
But the more you give them the more they die.
They believe in almighty God
And some that the Devil will come,
But the more they pray for the more they cry.
Up here you can see the truth,
They live by the power of fools,
And believe in the words of a chosen few
Religion is the root of it all,
Believe in them and you lose it all,
And the only question left is why?

I'm gonna take you on the Raven Ride
We use the shroud of darkness and the power of flight
Like the Shamen, we leave our body behind
We use our souls to fly,
The Raven Ride

I'm gonna take you on the Raven Ride
We use the shroud of darkness and the power of flight
Like the Shamen, we leave our body behind
We use our souls to fly, The Raven Ride.

I'm gonna take you on the Raven Ride
We use the shroud of darkness and the power of flight
Like the Shamen, we leave our body behind
We use our souls to fly, The Raven Ride.
 
 
Breathe
In the days of creation, you created life,
But you gave us temptation, that really wasn't nice.
You told us we were mortal, then showed us eternity,
In the times of reflection, did you not think how it would be?

You gave us power to reason, a lethal ability,
You made us jealous and evil, and then you made us breathe.

We hate the face you gave us, it's always out of place,
Forever trying to escape, after all, we're the human race,
This fortress you made is faulty, it can't sustain us anymore,
And the legacy is fading, and man has turned to war.

You gave us power to reason, a lethal ability,
You made us jealous and evil, and then you made us breathe.
You gave us power to reason, a lethal ability,
You made us jealous and evil, and then you made us breathe.
You gave us power to reason, a lethal ability,
You made us jealous and evil, and then you made us breathe.
 
 
Carbon Based Lifeform
I've seen the light, I got it sussed,
I understand, it's a thing called trust,
You don't treat me right, like I don't belong,
Here on earth, it all seems wrong.

I'm a carbon based life form, and I feel pain
I'm a carbon based life form, I'm not an alien.

There is no future, without some light,
And as you move away, it seems more right,
I've been in the dark, eclipsed by you,
And now I feel some heat, and I see some truth.

I'm a carbon based life form, and I feel pain
I'm a carbon based life form, I'm not an alien.

You talk down to me, as you float around.
You're a shootin' star, from a different world.
You're in a solo system, movin' away from me,
This space feels cold.

You talk down to me, as you float around.
You're a shootin' star, from a different world.
You're in a solo system, movin' away from me,
This space feels cold.

You talk down to me, as you float around.
You're a shootin' star, from a different world.
You're in a solo system, movin' away from me,
This space feels cold.

I'm a carbon based life form, and I feel pain
I'm a carbon based life form, I'm not an alien.
I'm a carbon based life form, and I feel pain
I'm a carbon based life form, I'm not an alien.
I'm not an alien!
 
 
Satanic Curses
I'm afraid to look, I'm afraid to see
It feels like something is surrounding me,
Looking deep into my soul.
I'm afraid to run, I'm afraid to cry,
It feels like God himself has stepped aside,
And left me here on my own.

My heart has stopped, I can feel my life fading away,
I hear satanic curses, whisper to my soul,
I hear the mystic verses, it's so tempting to just let go.

I'm too scared to hope, I'm too scared to ask,
Just what I'm guilty of that made you so mad,
I just don't know what it is I've done
Here I stand alone, shaking to my bones,
The dreams I used to have, now they're all gone,
Is it because I dared to love.

My heart has stopped, I can feel my life fading away,
I hear satanic curses, whisper to my soul,
I hear the mystic verses, it's so tempting to just let go.

I hear satanic curses, whisper to my soul,
I hear the mystic verses, it's so tempting to just let go.
 
 
Al-Sirat - The Bridge to Paradise
At the end of your days when the time has come for you to die,
Al-Sirat waits for you,
The only way that you can get to the land of paradise,
It's the final test of truth
Only those with a truthful heart can walk the narrow path,
Narrower than a spiders thread.
Wicked souls and evil ones they will fall to their death,
Below them hell awaits the dead

Sharper than a blade of steel,
It's too late to make a deal,
Below the devil wants you,
Behind your life has left you
Al-Sirat before you,
The bridge to paradise.

As you merge with infinity and you look into the distance,
Al-Sirat appears to you.
Be aware of your first new step from this earthly existence,
To a place intended for the few.
Then the master calls, all the pure souls,
And the exodus begins.
In the time that seems like forever, a thousand more fall down to the reaper,
And you feel the heat beneath your wings.

Sharper than a blade of steel,
It's too late to make a deal,
Below the devil wants you,
Behind your life has left you
Al-Sirat before you,
The bridge to paradise.

He's waiting for your soul,
There's no where else to go,
You gotta walk across the bridge to paradise.

You gotta take the walk of faith,
You're going to a better place,
You gotta walk across the bridge to paradise.
 
 
What Would I Do?
Thinkin' back to the times I had when I felt lonely
Never felt complete and had the feeling of falling.
Always seemed to recognize other people who felt lonely
I knew them all but you know they didn't know me
Though they never spoke to me or gave me a sign
I could look in their eyes and see that they were the same.
As I walk the street sometimes the feelin' returns to me
Oh No, I don't want to go there no more.
'Cuz I got you now and all my darkness has lifted
And when I think about it, it seems like a curse,
When I look at you I can't believe this gift
Now I keep on waitin' for the bubble to burst!

What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone.
What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone new.

I feel you with me when I wake in the morning,
I feel you're nearer than the thoughts in my head.
I feel you closer than the body I live in.
When I can't feel anythin' at all, it feels like I'm dead.
And that takes me back to the times when I felt lonely
Being incomplete and that feeling of falling,
Then all those people seem to know just how I'm feelin'
Though I never look in their eyes or give them a sign.
So I sometimes find myself tryin' not to think about it,
These days are the best days though it feels like a curse.
When I look at you I can't believe this gift
And I keep on waitin' for the bubble to burst!

What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone.
What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone new.

Tell me, what would I do
What would I do

What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone.
What would I do, what would I do, what would I do.
If you ever gave this gift to someone new.
 
 
Changing World
Everything's goin' up in smoke
I'm beginning to choke
I can't feel the sun shine on my face.
People fightin' for this
People fightin' for that
Just another curse on the human race.

And the sea is rising
And the world is warming.
And the stars are fading more each day.

It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.

We pray together and sing
It seems such a simple thing,
But times have changed and no one seems to hear,
Government politician speaks
Says the answers are on the streets
But days are dark and no one seems to care.

Now the sea is rising
And the world is warming.
And the stars are fading more each day.

It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.

It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.
It's a changin' world, that we're livin' in.

I Can't Trust Myself
When I'm in your company it's just perfect, you got everything,
Love the way you look at me your eyes just say it, and that's a special thing,
You say things that torment me but it's worth it, tell me anything,
But say you want me, madly, deeply in love, or I'll have to run,
Run away because

I can't trust myself to leave you alone I can't trust myself no no no,
I can't trust myself to leave you alone
I can't trust myself it's much too much
I wanna touch but it's just too much.

Your smile does things to me, I can't describe it, only wish I could,
Your lips would look good on me, wanna try it, babe I wish you would
I thought that looking wasn't sposed to hurt me, but I'll do anything
Just say you want me, need me, madly in lust, or you'll have to run,
Hide away because

I can't trust myself, to leave you alone I can't trust myself no no no,
I can't trust myself to leave you alone
I can't trust myself it's much too much
I wanna touch but it's just too much.

From the point of view, of a broken heart,
You're my defibrillator, you jump n I'll start,
You woke me up, when I was dead and gone.
All I have to do, is to make you see,
That if there is no you, then there is no me,
You're the reason why, i do the things I do.

When I'm in your company it's just perfect, you got everything,
Love the way you look at me your eyes just say it, and that's a special thing,
You say things that torment me but it's worth it, tell me anything,
But say you want me, madly, deeply in love, or I'll have to run,
Run away because

But say you want me, madly, deeply in love, or I'll have to run,
Run away because

I can't trust myself to leave you alone I can't trust myself no no no,
I can't trust myself to leave you alone
I can't trust myself it's much too much
I wanna touch but it's just too much.

I can't trust myself to leave you alone I can't trust myself no no no,
I can't trust myself to leave you alone
I can't trust myself it's much too much
I wanna touch but it's just too much.
 
 
The Devil Speaks, the Sinner Cries
There is non more evil, than I,
I am supreme evil, they say,
Consider this life, a gift.
Death is nothing at all,
Just a farewell kiss.

But the sun doesn't rise, no more.
And I can't see paradise, no, oh.

Spiraling downward, from your garden of Eden,
Come kings and queens, that spit on their people,
An infinite bleeding, of human remorse,
I've no interest in them, or the worshiping hoars,

We were promised the world, with faith,
And salvation from our sins, if we prayed,

Oh, Sweet Jesus, what did we do?
We gave our souls to you, yeah, I'm beggin' you please,
Oh God, we failed again.

But the sun doesn't rise, no more.
And I can't see paradise, No, oh.
We were promised the world, with faith,
And salvation from our sins, if we prayed.
