Track Name: Distant Cries Of Despair
If you dream of what will be
You'll be surprised of what you see
You can do anything that you want
If we die in the process that's fine

There are demons inside my head
The angels sing until they're dead
But that makes angels just as bad as them all
Let's just have our minds half good and half bad

I'm standing on a mountain
I'm running through the streams
I hear the children crying
I listen to their screams
I stand above you all
A moment meant to be
And when you made the sacrifice I fell asleep

Hear the truth,
Dismiss the lies,
Or in the end,
You'll join the flies,
I didn't mean the things that I said
But I can't get you back now you're dead
It's hard to live inside your head
The lies you make are what I'm fed
I must decipher what is right and what's wrong
I will watch and I'll learn 'till I'm strong

I'm standing on a mountain
I'm running through the streams
I hear the children crying
I listen to their screams
I stand above you all
A moment meant to be
And when you made the sacrifice
I fell into a dream
You made me lose it all
You made me fall so far
I've never understood
Why you would choose to make that scar
Upon your very king
Cut off your oxygen
I never can forgive I'm trapped within

I'm standing on a mountain
I'm running through the streams
I hear the children crying
I listen to their screams
I stand above you all
A moment meant to be
And when you made your sacrifice
I fell into a dream
You made me lose it all
You made me fall so far
I've never understood
Why you would choose to make that scar
Upon your very king
Cut off your oxygen
I never can forgive I'm trapped within

If you dream of what will be
You'll be surprised of what you see
You can do anything that you want
If we die in the process that's fine
Track Name: The Great Illusion
Is this a dream?
When you think it is reality
To let out a scream
'cos you think you're gonna drown
Inside a pink and blue stream
But everything it all seems so real
Even when you witness the elephant squeal at a tree
Talking like you and me
It doesn't matter if you see it
While it's purple and green
'cos it's real to your eyes
What a pretty disguise
Now it's time to wake up
And see the truth in the lies
When you see many strange things
Use it to tell yourself
That you are in a dream
That you are in a dream
That you are in a dream
Open up all your eyes
See what it is that they hide
You'll be able to fly
And you'll be able to sing
In fact it's a world
Where you can do anything

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

Define for me reality
I'd like to see you try
It's time to see the world you dream
Just open up your eyes

Is this a dream?
When you think it is reality
To let out a scream
'cos you think you're gonna drown
Inside a pink and blue stream
But everything it all seems so real
Even when you witness the elephant squeal at a tree
Talking like you and me
It doesn't matter if you see it
While it's purple and green
'cos it's real to your eyes
What a pretty disguise
Now it's time to wake up
And see the truth in the lies
When you see many strange things
Use it to tell yourself
That you are in a dream
That you are in a dream
That you are in a dream
Open up all your eyes
See what it is that they hide
You'll be able to fly
And you'll be able to sing
In fact it's a world
Where you can do anything

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

Define for me reality
I'd like to see you try
It's time to see the world you dream
Just open up your eyes

Are you dreaming?
Are yuo dreaming?
Are you dearming?
?are you dreamngi?

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

What you do in the day
Follows through to your dreams
What you do in your dreams
Follows through to your day

Define for me reality
I'd like to see you try
It's time to see the world you dream
Just open up your eyes
Track Name: The Last Road
It is over tomorrow
The sky will go black
The mountains will fall
There's no turning back

It is over tomorrow
The fire arrives
Death will soon follow
And everyone dies

It is over tomorrow
When the stars disappear
You'll turn to your friends
But find no one there

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when everyone dies
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when all of you die
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

It is over tomorrow
When the grass has been scorched
And the air has been poisoned
Your houses are torched

It is over tomorrow
Your courage is gone
Dying in sorrow
You're no longer strong

It is over tomorrow
The time is just right
Darkness surrounds you
With no source of light

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when everyone dies
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when all of you die
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

When depression is great
And hope's gone away
Your lives will be threatened
With night in place of day

When our purpose is gone
No lives to defend
We all get to witness
The worlds vicious end

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when everyone dies
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

When the world becomes cold
And the cruelty arrives
That is the moment when all of you die
When the mind is destroyed
And your earth has changed shape
You will terribly suffer
Without an escape

When our purpose has gone
No lives to defend
We all get to witness
The worlds vicious end

When our purpose has gone
No lives to defend
We all get to witness
This worlds vicious end

When our purpose has gone
No lives to defend
We all get to witness
The worlds vicious end

We all get to witness
The worlds vicious end
Track Name: Visions Of The Future
Every living thing will soon be gone
Not much time to go it won't be long
I don't need you telling me I'm wrong
I have seen things mutilate the strong

No we're not the only thing on earth
Soon there'll be demons giving birth
To the most terrifying beast
That your mind can imagine
Nobody will survive
When this thing is leashed upon the world
You don't believe me like you never have
But once again you'll see I'm right

When somebody speaks of what they've seen
Everybody laughs, they don't believe
I'm not asking for you to believe me
I'm just saying find out for yourself

No we're not the only thing on earth
Soon there'll be demons giving birth
To the most terrifying beast
That your mind can imagine
Nobody will survive
When this thing is leashed upon the world
You don't believe me like you never have
But once again you'll see I'm right

I can save you, I can save you
If you listen,
If you hear what I'm saying
What I'm saying is that everybody will soon be devoured
By a terrifying beast
But nobody believes me
The only way to escape is to find out about it by yourself
The time has come to open up your eyes
And see your dreams more clearly
Visit new worlds and ask questions
Or you will soon see
That it will kill you
We will all die
If you do not open your eyes

It will kill you
We will all die
If you do not open your eyes
It will kill you
We will all die
If you do not open your eyes
It will kill you
We will all die
If you do not open your eyes
Track Name: Mo(u)rning For The Dead
All the ones I used to love are dead
I can hear all of the words they said
I just want to meet you all again
Maybe in a dream I'll find my friends
There is always hope for all of us

But at this moment
Everyone is lost forever
And you will not be coming back

We will sing beneath the sky
Each of us will sacrifice an eye
We will mourn for the death of all
The ones that we all knew
And all the ones that loved to love the lot of you and
Eye was to symbolize something that
Each of us have known from the beginning of time

Everything I say is all the same
'cos of vivid memories in my brain
Some people think that I have gone insane
I would kill them all but must refrain
Everybody's dead, oh what a shame

But at this moment
Everyone is lost forever
And you will not be coming back

We will sing beneath the sky
Each of us will sacrifice an eye
We will mourn for the death of all
The ones that we all knew
And all the ones that loved to love the lot of you and
Eye was to symbolize something that
Each of us have known from the beginning of time
Track Name: Escape Route
Everyone is always following the stupidest ones
That's how the world operates
Everyone is always listening to the stupidest ones
That's how the world operates
Everyone is always doing what they're told
By the unintelligent ones
And everyone should realize that the time's arrived
To open up our eyes
And see the world around us
See the world around us
See the world around us
See the world around us
Round us

We're going round in circles
That's how we're taught to be
We're going round in circles
We will never be free
Repeating everyday
Taught what's right and wrong
But who are they to say what is right and wrong?
We're going round in circles
That's how we're taught to see
Repeating everyday
We will never be free

I'll help you all escape
From this horrid place
When I get the chance
I'll only do what's right
If you help me fight
So we'll all get back our sight
We'll get revenge on all
Who stand in our way
When we're climbing high
We'll get there before sunrise
We will be right on time
Time to sing and dance

Sail far away
We'll get away from you
And everyone who is against us
We will win the fight
We will escape
And we will reach the light
You will be trapped
And we will find a way
Towards a land that's very far away
And when we get there
Some of us at least
Will live in peace
For every other day of our lives
And you will still be there suffering
And we will all be lost from your lives
And minds and everything that existed
Will soon disappear
Just like Atlantis
You will see we're right
It has been dreamed of every single night
You don't believe me
But I tell the truth
I've never lied
You will see that we are right

I'll help you all escape
From this horrid place
When I get a chance
I'll only do what's right
If you help me fight
So we'll all get back our sight
We'll get revenge on all
Who stand in our way
When we're climbing high
We'll get there before sunrise
We will be right on time
Time for song and dance
Track Name: All There Is Left
A hundred million years ago
Living in a little cave
I came across a dinosaur
And so they'd call me brave
I went up to the dinosaur
And hit it on the head
But it got very angry
And it made sure I was dead

Always remember your manners
Always remember your manners

What I'm really trying to say
Is we've all gone mad
Living in a crazy place
Made up of good and bad
This isn't quite as pointless as your brain is trying to say
But still I'll pack my things and for your sake I'll go away

All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people

All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people

All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people
All there is left in this world is crazy people

Everybody's mad,
Everybody's crazy.
Everybody's mad,
Everybody's crazy.

I just had a thought
Maybe it's just me
Maybe no one else
Is really that crazy

I just had a thought
Maybe it's just me
Always remember
All of your manners
Track Name: Will I Ever Get Through This
Will I ever get through this pain of mine?
Will I ever become what I want to be?
Do I have the determination and the belief in myself
To be free?
Will I ever grow up to be a god?
Or will I fail miserably?
Will my life go the way that I want it to go,
Or will I turn to what you said I'd be?

Did I fall from the sky or did I rise to see the sun
And meet it face to face
Forever let it be
Oh I would love to rise above the earth
That we are on
And fly around the universe
So light and free

I want to succeed and show you that you were wrong
But I have such little hope and life isn't that long
I will wait and I will carefully watch
Until I've lost all of my light
Then I'll wait for dawn
Singing my last song
And I'll be crying final tears

Did I fall from the sky or did I rise to see the sun
And meet it face to face
Forever let it be
Oh I would love to rise above the earth
That we are on
And fly around the universe
So light and free

Did I fall from the sky or did I rise to see the sun
And meet it face to face
Forever let it be
Oh I would love to rise above the earth
That we are on
And fly around the universe
So light and free
Will I be free?
Track Name: Pendulum
We all have our low times
But then we have our highs
We never will be stable on this Pendulum of Life
Swinging to the dark side,
Then swinging to the light
First we're wanting peace
And then we want to fight

We all have our low times
But then we have our highs
We never will be stable on this Pendulum of Life
Swinging to the dark side,
Then swinging to the light
First we're wanting peace
And then we want to fight
Track Name: The Misfitting Individual
Beneath the stars
I hear the sound of my own chattering teeth
Running through my head
Are things I've heard
And things I've said

Everything I ever do
And every word I say
Comes back and smacks me round the head
It happens everyday

I am so useless in your society
I'm so lazy in your eyes
I am so ruined in totality
I don't show what I can hide
I am a misfitting individual
I hate you and I hate me
I will never fit in your school
I will get out hopefully

I am so useless in your society
I'm so lazy in your eyes
I am so ruined in totality
I don't show what I can hide
I am a misfitting individual
I hate you and I hate me
I will never fit in your school
I will get out hopefully

It was a big mistake me being born
It wasn't meant to be
I should be with the tribe we made
Where I was happy,
Lost yet free
Nobody in the world has ever understood my mind
I'm so alone in a world where no one thinks until you're gone
I'm told each day that basically I will not succeed
I try so hard but get nowhere
It's difficult to breathe
Cannot speak to certain ones
Without causing them to cry
Am I really so fucked up,
That I should go and quietly die?
Is it true that everything I say is utter fucking shit?
And apparently I'm crazy, wonder why I through a fit
Got to a point where the only way I could express
Was to scream and shout and cry as if my body was possessed
And when I needed listening to, you told me to shut up
But when you finally listened, I no longer gave a fuck

Useless in your society
I'm so lazy in your eyes
I am so ruined in totality
I don't show what I can hide
I am a misfitting individual
I hate you and I hate me
I will never fit in your school
I will get out hopefully

I am so useless in your society
I'm so lazy in your eyes
I am so ruined in totality
I don't show what I can hide
I am a misfitting individual
I hate you and I hate me
I will never fit in your school
I will get out hopefully

All that I am doing is simply being me
At least I'm not fucking up another family
At least I haven't split another child's mind in half
I'm crying and I'm screaming and all you did was laugh
Curled up in a little ball, upon my dusty floor
Hoping I won't have to live in this world anymore
I was praying, begging, shaking,
For someone just to kill me
But no one came to rescue me
I felt so dead and filthy
I managed to stand up upon my trembling feet and legs
So I didn't have to try and crawl away from this instead
I left the house to see the stars
And get a breath of air
Lying on the freezing grass
Comforted by my fear
Thinking of the many ways and things that I could do
And longing to return to where I should be, far from you
They say there's many of us
But I believe there's few
I wish that when I got back
You'd at least have told the truth

I know when you are lying,
I can feel it deep inside,
You never would have told me
If I had believed your lies
No one I can trust,
I am so alone,
All that I can hope,
Is to refind my home

Split between two different lives
Is horrible you see
Imprisoned in a world
That I don't even want to be
Time is moving rapidly,
My other half is making me
Become what I don't need to be
Until my other half is free.
