Track Name: War
Innocent hands start to bleed
beating against the stones
No-one listens to empty words
thrown onto a pile of bones
And it all breaks down
at a word out of place
And everyone dies, reap what you sow

Is it in our nature?
that unreasonable behaviour?
Is it passed down through the ages?
onto every generation?

Submissive and blind
love...love won't save you
There is scorn in my eyes
as you welcome the bombs

War across the world
and not a single day goes by
without an enemy in sight
War across the world
and in one single lifetime
our legacy got lost in time

Is it in our nature?
that unreasonable behaviour?
Is it passed down through the ages?
onto every generation?

War across the world
and not a single day goes by
without an enemy in sight
War across the world
and in one single lifetime
our legacy got lost in time
War across the world
and the shadows in the twilight
it remains to see who dies
War across the world
words of men are not enough
to change or overcome

words of men are not enough....
Track Name: Worlds Apart
Overcome by a turn of the tide
And every second is resonating
And all the time you’ve been radiating
Standing sentry with no compromising
Every moment turns another page
But it runs deeper than that
If every moment was a beautiful light
It stands before you but worlds apart

Waiting – I’m waiting!
Hand in hand with a dark allegiance
Closer – it’s closer now!
Radiating like a distant star
Inside – only empty inside!
Lost on a tide when nothing changes
Side by side!
But in the light of day we’re worlds apart

If every moment was a beautiful light….
Like a distant star….
It stands before you….
And all this time you’ve been radiating
Standing sentry with no compromising
And every second is resonating
But it runs deeper than that

Waiting – I’m waiting!
Hand in hand with a dark allegiance
Closer – it’s closer now!
Radiating like a distant star
Inside – only empty inside!
Lost on a tide when nothing changes
Side by side!
But in the light of day we’re worlds apart

We’re worlds apart
Worlds apart
Track Name: Collapsed Society
Collapsed society
born to nothing
born to fail
educated stupid
educated stupid

Collapsed society
born to nothing
born to fail
educated stupid
educated stupid

No submission!
No surrender!
No betrayal!
No retribution
No shit!
No more shit.....

Collapsed society
born to nothing
born to fail
educated stupid
educated stupid

No submission!
No surrender!
No betrayal!
No retribution
No shit!
No more shit.....
Track Name: Medicine
Rattling down the road
it's a long ride.
Fighting wars with yourself
time gone on the wind.
And the leaves soften the ground
when the deed is done.
When regret tears at your heels,
it's the thorn in your side.

Gather your thoughts around
and swallow your medicine.
Spaces grow too old
nothing left to hold

What have you got
at the end of the day
You got a drunk in a dream
to make it all go away
And you will never return
to make amends and escape
One hundred miles away
one thousand back again.

Leaves soften the ground (soften the sound)
Gather your thoughts around
and swallow your medicine

A the end of the day
There's Nothing!
to make it all go away
swallow your medicine

What have you got
at the end of the day
You got a drunk in a dream
to make it all go away
And you will never return
to make amends and escape
One hundred miles away
one thousand back again.
