Crazy World As soon as my feet touch the ground
 I get turned upside down
 The hands of time are clenching on
 To the gates of steel only to reveal
 Ideological devastation that’s captivating
 Whole damned nations
 where the crystal balls they feel with blood
 Now the righteous words are misunderstood It’s a crazy world. As soon as my feet hit the ground
 I get spun upside down
 Her tainted touch lit my eternal flame
 Resilient to the hostile rain As thick as thieves bounded by blood and truth 
 Lovesick acknowledgment burdens the proof
 That the crystal balls shattered like faith
 Into a thousand pieces to re-solidify our fate Nobody’s getting out of here alive
 Just like the renaissance let art thrive cause we're the renegades and We will survive 
 It’s a crazy world my friends and you know it don’t make much sense
 It’s a crazy world my friends and were living it till thee end It’s a crazy world for me and you

Forever Never The voice down old gypsy road
 Tones of bliss, I knew she would be mine 
 Philosophers painted the walls
 The vandals prophesied
 What was the reason
 That we lived parallel lives
 Fighting the good old fight
 Penetrating the pride of time Together we fought this world as one
 As marching bands commiserate armageddon
 Long awaited infectious returns
 We only learn when we crash and burn
 Should if you ever fall from grace out of trace
 Its been written that we will never die alone The twisted fork separated the road
 Two tainted worlds implode
 Casualties of lust and war
 Entities of barren lands
 With feelings that change like the seasons 
 To disastrous to understand
 Unveiling the reasons 
 Why we swam in sinking sand?

Unwritten Stories Exiled from the wagon I was thrown on Raised in the street cold concrete blocked out the sun In bad condition with wild ambition Down every wayward avenue Anger can be power if you know which route to use Hook lined and sinkered into education Manipulated into the factory nation Anti-social isolation separation The foundation of my fragile generation The unwritten stories of hanging around my dirty town I wonder who will survive and I wonder who will drown I look outside I see the world collide and hear the mantra's Of echoed whispers ''why are we all alive'' Well the truth nobody can explain could all it all be a game? Constricted by the reigns this reality oh so strange So for now let distraction be our power tool The universal mystery unsolvable If we could see the choice between fear and love is written across every wall The unwritten stories of hanging around my dirty town I wonder who will survive and I wonder who will drown The unwritten stories the unwritten stories of my rebel youth Of my rebel youth of my rebel youth

The Final Stand They're out to get you boy You don't stand a chance Bad habits die hard The catch 22 is there's no advance Rattle the cages and break the chains Don't worry about tomorrow Broken dreams turn to empty tears And a shattered heart of sorrow Come on and dance with me This is the final stand There ain't no stopping them Just because they're killing me They've got poison arrows loaded up Aiming for the heart of destiny Well my hand was made strong But I should of known all along That not even diamonds are forever Come on and dance with me This is the final stand Won't you dance with me Won't somebody like you Save me

Falling Down
 The echoed sounds of sirens and defeat
 Made everybody scatter in my lonely street
 As Fear ricochet from every wall
 Convicting any man short or tall
 Red alerts conquered the Sky 
 casting vengeful Reflection over forgiving eyes 
 As a burning sign floats through the air 
 Reading - ‘If only we had stuck together’ I heard a distant call Then bad bad news came falling down Everybody had to run the other way
 Searching for another day
 But it was too late for the human race
 Mother natures bastard son already picked up the pace
 As the flashes illuminate a broken sky 
 I knew it was the end for you and I
 So I took your hand and whispered in your ear
 ‘At least we fall together’ I heard a distant call Then bad bad news came falling down

6


The Drifter I’ve been asleep all of my life
 Not even devastation could open my eyes
 You’ll be asleep all of your lives
 Anger manifestation you’ll your own consolation prize
 Preaching bout the future
 Cause we cant change the past
 Let the bridges i burn light the way
 To fill this empty glass I’m just that drifter
 The one who passing through
 I’m just that drifter
 I don’t belong to you or you
 I don’t belong to you or you I hear the voices from the underworld
 The hopeless sketching from every boy and girl
 Preaching bout the future
 Cause we cant change the past
 These streets have burnt before
 I wonder how long they are gonna last
 I see the fumes from my sinking ship
 Going nowhere fast
 Let the bridges i burn light the way
 To fill this empty glass

7


I'm just that drifter
 The one who passing through
 I’m just that drifter
 I don’t belong to you or you
 I don’t belong to you or you
 There ain’t no chains to tie me down Cause i’m passing through

8


Sweet Tranquility The killers of virtue only honour the brave Elites heed the cause when there fortune be made The structure of power only the ruthless can win Tickets to the ivory tower then lock themselves in I want to run run so far away I want to run run into a better day Transition Taking hold of me Transition Into sweet tranquility Follow me The killers of virtue only prey on the weak While vultures of greed fly in when our horizons are bleak Well the structure of power only the brutal have one In the eleventh hour that's how it begun I want to run run so far away I want to run run into a better day Transition Taking hold of me Transition Into sweet tranquility Follow me Can you hear the whispers of change The perception of a brand new world

Wrong Side Of The Tracks   I'm a spectator with a front row seat To a teenage runaway with dead mans shoes on his feet In between the lines of exile you handed me my epitaph And smiled at the face of denial It's alright now momma You had to go and leave me on the Wrong side of the tracks It's alright now momma Cause I couldn't grow knowing you Were a Repeat offender in the passenger seat To a castaway renegade with dead woman's shoes on your feet With a light that shines inside of me that burns violently For the world to see It's alright now momma You had to go and leave me on the Wrong side of the tracks It's alright now momma Cause i couldn't grow knowing you We're coming back Coming back Coming back Coming back You ain't never coming back I guess Habits seen to die hard I guess Habits seen to die hard   10


Marchin' On   Face to face with the angelic silhouette of my dark shadow Visions like these only seem to appear When I'm tortured eyes are closed It's hard to separate the manic in the manifestos Consumed by the cosmos of fear When your living a gold existence or eternal solitude That led you here all alone He said No! There ain't no saving you! He said No! There ain't no saving you So I stepped out onto the street To celebrate the sensations of destiny Dancing through iridescent puddles of lust in the mud Manifesting the abundance of love Behind the walls were all free from discrimination Independent thought with good vibrations Reverberating the cold existence of eternal solitude That lead you to salvation on your own He said No! There ain't no saving you! He said No! There ain't no saving you! Behind the walls were all free from incrimination Behind the walls were all free 11


The Decline of a Better Man I'm losing the fight I'm losing the war I can’t see what’s right any more Four walls are closing in on me Fallen into the arms of the enemy The decline of a better man There’s blood stains on my hands The dark cloud of a broken man There's blood stains on my hands Your losing the fight I lost the war Nothing seems to make sense any more Dr jeckle or mister hide Please tell me which one am I The decline of a better man There’s blood stains on my hands The dark cloud of a broken man There’s blood stains on my hands

12


Do Or Die She loves the sound of her own two
 Papa’s better off her living on the sunny side of the street
 She’s got diamonds in her eyes when she looks at coal
 But they turn into poison tears when she’s got no love at all Come on baby its do do or die
 Listen girl you don’t have to try
 Come on baby its do do or die
 But all you seem to do is lie She's got the shoes from 52
 Trousers over her head
 What you gonna’ do now, now the lust is dead
 You have got your trade your graves been made
 Miss high society This ain’t no fairy tale
 But your living in a fantasy Come on baby its do do or die
 Listen girl you don’t have to try
 Come on baby its do do or die
 But all you seem to do is lie

13


Bury Lane If memory's are what shape a man Then I'll hold my heavy heart with nostalgic hands For only a fool could look back with remorse To the past set in cold cold stone Tomorrow our's to rejoice There might be day when all your troubles are a blaze We'll see your name on bury lane There might be a day that all your sorrows are washed away With the rain Then we'll see your name On bury lane I'm not afraid to look into the eyes of the face of change But I'm petrified to see things stay the same For only a fool could look back with remorse To the past set in cold cold stone Now Tomorrow our's to rejoice

14


Santeria Your Words transmit through the veins of a million minds Divided by unity blind civilisation lead the blind You are loves bad luck charm Within you the truth is concealed Redundant love mis guided Hearts to black and cold To be healed, by you There's got to be more There's got to be more There's got to be more to this Santeria Won't you hear my plea Santeria Won't you take my sins away from me Santeria I think I'm sinking in Your walls to weak to birth the truth to the millions in need Forgiving hands pressed so tightly to civilisations on there knees You are loves worst kept secret Within you the taste so bitter sweet Redundant love misguided souls to lost To be saved by you so lonely they are only enslaved by you

15


There's got to be more There's got to be more There's got to be more to this Santeria Won't you hear my plea Santeria Won't you take my sins away from me Santeria.... The Saints have rolled in As I watch you fade away And now the saints roll in I watch you fade away Take my sins away Santeria Make my dreams come true Santeria Take my sins away Santeria Make my dreams come true

16


Situations The Coins of chance are flicked by our suppressor Cognitive wheels of hope do not turn on there own Cracks in the pavement are inconsistent When the roots of evil have overgrown Still we put strength in our final blow What are we gonna do now It's all gone wrong A hard rains gonna full and wash back to where we all belong What are we gonna now It's all gone wrong A hard rains gonna fall Hypocrisy is in the net of our tormentor Elusive writings of yesteryear Dictate the minds of modern fear Behind the smoke screen the truth appears still our rights are in arrears When situations go bad Just remember the best times in life Still could be the ones that we have never had When situations go bad Just remember the best times in life Could still be the ones we've never had Situations These situations 17


Consolidated I walk for miles chasing an empty silhouette Whirl winds confine my mind Debating the things that I regret Optimism fell upon the broken promised land The answers locked in Pandora's box Buried deep beneath the sand Forever searching grace subconsciously Tricked by lonely wild nerves sabotaged by passionate greed Am I ? Consolidated Consolidated Consolidated Conceived in the midst of debauchery Elevated by the dying sun I think for days on end behind a cigarette Memory's flood my mind as I walk the road of repent Forever searching grace subconsciously Tricked by lonely wild nerves sabotaged by passionate greed Am I? Consolidated Consolidated Consolidated Conceived in the midst of debauchery Elevated by the dying sun

18


Oblivion Slowly softly gently I slip into oblivion Beyond velvet tunnels of love I slip into oblivion Through the overflowing debris of righteous overtones I slip into oblivion Down to the valley of the forgotten and overthrown I slip into oblivion With the keys to unlock these chains Tied to you My distant days of decadence are through Slowly softly gently I slip into oblivion Beyond pulsating silk gardens of temptation I slip into oblivion Through overflowing red rivers of eternal grace I slip into oblivion Down to the realm of the lost and out of trace I slip into oblivion Oblivion is coming round again Oblivion is coming round again Oblivion

Walking On A Razors Edge The distorted face of an angel With obsolete deceiving eyes I should of known every word to be realised From that alibi was a disguise Once, twice I took her hand as she led me then kicked me into the bottomless pit Free falling through eternity The silver lining was the epiphany That hit like a ton of bricks Beauty walks on a razors edge Misery manifests and hangs by a thread With the ungrateful dead She walks on a razors edge The aborted voice of her illusion The sound of confusion behind a pair of weary eyes I should of known every word to be realised From that alibi was a disguise

21


With you or without you I'm gonna keep on Keeping on Come babe we both know Life goes on With Or without You It goes on and on and on and on Your walking on a razors edge Don't slip my dear Cause I won't be there To catch your fall I'm not that way anymore Your Walking on a razors edge I Won't be there Your Walking on a razors edge I won't be there Not anymore I'm not that way Not anymore 22


Hold No Shame I lost my mind in old Piccadilly Found it in union square Departed from my heart in Chicago Alongside the road to nowhere I've been far and wide in every desolate town But I ain't found what I'm looking for yet Maybe the answers will all be revealed When there's very little to regret Take me home My dues overpaid now there's debt to my name Take me home You was the master and I was the slave Take me home A price on my head cause I hold no shame There will never be a second time around Heart of stone on my sleeve Dead flowers on the ground I rode the train of through down to the river of misfortune Greeted by the holy grail I shook the hand of gloom in a translucent room And watched the final curtain fell As she said it takes a lifetime to figure out who you So I borrowed you somebody else's

23


But then She said I'm surprised you made it this far With all those abstract choices Cause I hold no shame Hold no shame Hold no shame These memory's fade with the years To drive me to abolish my fears Leaving no souvenirs I said momma I'm ready Momma I'm ready Hold No Shame Hold No Shame
