Episode X (Arrival)
Are you sure... everything has been said, has been done
And you've heard every note? Oh, I see, the excitement's gone...
Every sound in the world's been created, every song has been sung
'Til it faded away? No, you've got a lot to learn... are you ready?
 
 
End of the Line
Hey, watch us crawling downhill, pretending to be on our way to the top...
So we're falling upwards or is it just me, feeling lost and confused?
(Yeah, it's all yesterday's news)
What if we're leaving something or someone behind as we're marching away
And believing that there's no time to rewind - oh no.
I need some time to catch my breath... "You're in or not? We're running hot!"

Seconds away from getting there but loosing - minutes are passing us by
Hours to change the pace. But we're refusing... time's up. End of the line

We all need some time to catch our breath...
"You're in or not? Get ready cuz we're running hot!"

Seconds away from getting there but loosing - minutes are passing us by
Hours to change the pace. But we're refusing...
It's time, time for you to slow down and try to see why
Your life keeps on passing you by
 
 
King for a Day
I see - Your power's growing stronger you can enjoy it longer...
Go take another swing
Your lies might be a great improvement of a silly, pointless movement
That doesn't mean a thing
A dog behind the fence, no pride no common sense - Howling
Regardless any hype - A simple, ruthless kind knowing
The hell be gone overnight

Alright, you had your feelings padded and getting better at it
Well colour me impressed
Your heart is turning meaner colder as you are growing older...
Now - Back in line with the rest
Of you - Some empty shells, the kind of garbage hell's waiting for
No conscious no remorse - It can't get any worse any more

Life is cruel: go on rule... Such a fool You're a king for a day
Time will come, you'll be gone - Everyone, every king for a day
You can run, you can hide... Never mind - You're a king for a day
Here's the end - and it's fair cuz you were just a king for a day

Take closer look around... Life's already wasted
Ask yourself - Do you believe that someone can replace it?
Do you really think it all will go away in a single day,
A single bloody day?

"Why?" What goes round comes around...
Lose your head and lose your crown...
Now you're going down.
 
 
The Well
Every friend you've had, everyone you've lost
Whom you miss the most - Are disappearing
In a nick of time you can change it all with a single call...
And watch them slowly reappearing

Drop a coin into this magic well: Make a wish - But not just yet...
Someone's heaven could be someone's hell,
So be aware of what you'll get

Everyday we die just a little bit...
Every heartbeat just brings the very last one closer
You can stop the clock, you can turn the tide
For a little while - So hit the breaks, it's been a long ride

Drop a coin into this magic well, make a wish and you will see
Who you were - Before that final bell...
Are you the one you wished to be?
 
 
Army of Slaves
I've been rolling with the pooches,
I've been chased around town
At the bottom of the blood chain
You better get used to be pushed around

I've been lost and I've been lonely,
I've been howling like a dog
And I might look all the same,
But I'm still in the game
It makes you hard as a rock

You need a lot of fists until the system breaks
So an army, just like us is all it takes

You see a slave with an army of slaves
Can change the world in mysterious ways
'Cause when the chain is gone his heart gets stronger
A slave with an army of slaves
He is a slave no longer
Slave no longer

I've been kept below the surface
A part of the bad crowd
I was rotting inside as the last one in line
With no chance of ever getting out

I'm sick and tired of losing,
Sick and tired of bad luck
Let's say today is the day when I'm breaking away
And never ever coming back

You need a lot of fists until the system breaks
So an army, just like us is all it takes

You see a slave with an army of slaves
Can change the world in mysterious ways
'Cause when the chain is gone his heart gets stronger
A slave with an army of slaves

A slave with an army of slaves
He is a slave no longer uh, yeah

Slave with an army of slaves
Can change the world in so many ways
'Cause when the chain is gone his heart gets stronger
A slave with an army of slaves

A slave with an army of slaves
Can change the world in mysterious ways
'Cause when the chain is gone his heart gets stronger
A slave with an army of slaves
He is a slave no longer
 
 
Shadowman
Oh, I be a shadowman

Don't need a face, don't need a name
No business card but all the same
I'm right around the corner just in case
You'll change your mind

I'm like a shadow in the night
Here on your left, here on your right
I'm everywhere at anytime
An easy one to find

I'm your master, doing well
Reaching out to help
Just take my hand, come on man
When your dearest dreams are shot to hell
Here I am your shadowman
Shadowman

I have it all in any shape,
In any colour real or fake
To shoot, to smoke to swallow raw
Let go and take a dive

And watch your biggest problem
Gone! Severe mistakes become undone
You must admit that I'm the one re-tailoring your life

I'm your master, doing well
Reaching out to help
Just take my hand, come on man
When your dearest dreams are shot to hell
Here I am your shadowman
Shadowman

Look back at your life and tell me you're fine
Why, please tell me why did you cross the line
Into the world of a cold, permanent night?

Alright now red alert begins to flash
You're into deep and out of cash
Prepare yourself to face the crash
Oh, now it's all unfair?

So you discovered something new
I'm not kidding you, I'm killing you
You're on your own because we're through
And I don't really care

I'm your master wish me well
Fade away but try to understand
When your silly life's got shot to hell
Think of me your shadowman
 
 
Back to Square One
They say a home's just a place where you can leave your hat
That's right and I'm a living proof
As you will see of that
On the move all alone who cares 'bout a place to call home?
Look ahead race is on and you better run away from square one
Run away from square one

I use to chase fame and fortune all over the place
But what's the point if you never meet a single friendly face
Anywhere, anytime?
I'm starting to think it's a crime
Can't you see all those years I've been living a lie?

I travelled the world and I crossed every sea
I've seen everything what I wanted to see
Around the world on the run
I'm back to square one

I'm pushing the wheel and I'm turning around
I'm leaving behind everything that I've found
Along the way It's been down
I'm back to square one

I travelled the world and I crossed every sea
I've seen everything what I wanted to see
Around the world on the run
I'm back to square one

I'm pushing the wheel and I'm turning around
I'm leaving behind everything that I've found
Along the way It's been down
I'm back to square one

I travelled the world and I crossed every sea
I've seen everything what I wanted to see
Around the world on the run
I'm back to square one

I'm pushing the wheel and I'm turning around
I'm leaving behind everything that I've found
Along the way It's been down
I'm back to square one

I'm going on I'm back, back to square one
I'm going on I'm back to square one, yeah won't say yeah
I'm back to square one
I'm back to square one, square one
I'm back to square one, square one
 
 
Blood Red Stars
I'm walking tonight under these blood red stars
They're spreading their light across the sky
We're moving apart me and these blood red stars
It's breaking my heart
I'm wondering why

How could I forget to once again
Raise my glass to you
The land of sorrow
You remember wasted years full of pain
And full of angry tears

Why this tortured soil is still alive
How with all those scars
It keeps on living?
Hopes and dreams are in the dirty
Every soul's been badly hurt
But look up there
Above the wall
Red stars refuse to fall
As they should, Dead cold

I'm walking tonight under these blood red stars
They're spreading their light across the sky
We're moving apart me and these blood red stars
It's breaking my heart
I'm wondering why
Wondering why

Hey, it's all gonna change one day
I'll close my eyes and pray all your pain away

I'm walking tonight under these blood red stars
They're spreading their light across the sky
We're moving apart me and these blood red stars
It's breaking my heart
I'm wondering why

Where bloody stars
Wondering why
 
 
The Last Leaf
Wind is shaking the tree outside
Holding it nice and tight
While blowing leafs away
I know it's just a myth,
But can the last one escape the fall and stay?

How I wish that you were here to help me
Do bitter words suppose to cut so deep
How I wish that you were here to tell me sleep

I'm still in front of an empty page,
Imagine deserted stage
Nobody else but you
Up there trying to save the day but failing
What's left to say? Who knew?

But out there in the cold the last leaf's gonna fall
And sweep away another lonely day
So I'm just waiting for a gentle sigh, my final call
Fly away, I'll follow

Can you see the wind is getting stronger?
It keeps on playing with my jaded heart
Let it be can't take it any longer
I know that out there in the cold
The last leaf's gonna fall
And sweep away another lonely day
So I'm just waiting for a gentle sigh, my final call
Fly away, I'll follow

But out there in the cold the last leaf's gonna fall
And sweep away another lonely day
So I'm just waiting for a gentle sigh, my final call
Fly away, fly away, fly
 
 
Falling Down
Now I'm going
Down on down

Take me home
I'm all alone, lost without a clue
I've been around, been up and down for years but now I'm through
Take my hand
I need a friend to get back on my feet
One man down
Cuffed on the ground
These odds are hard to beat
This time around
I'm going down
Face down on the ground
Down on down
Down, down

Out of gas, an empty glass,
Bored and out of change
Looks like any kind of fun is way outside my range
Tried so hard to play it smart but trouble came,
Looking for me
I'm sure today they'll lock me up and throw away the key

I'm falling, falling
There's nothing to lose or to gain anymore
Falling, falling
It never will be like before

So now I'm falling, falling
There's nothing to lose or to gain anymore
Falling, falling
It never will be like before
Falling, falling
There's nothing to lose and there's nothing to find
Falling, falling
Way down it's the end of the line
