Track Name: The Reunitation (First Song)
You are the forgotten one
Lost so far away
With nobody by your side
Lost in the depths of time
Lost within your life
But you shall be re-found

Days and months and year pass by
Quickly yet slowly
While you're crying out at night
Forever needing help
But when we meet again
We will find the way home

Our friendship will reunite
Together we'll rebuild the forgotten tribe
Free from both danger and fear
Singing and dancing
Drowned in our happiness

What more can we wish and hope
But to meet just one last time
Awaiting for the beautiful day
That arrives so soon, so fine

Foretold so long ago
Unknown to so many
The long awaited days

How long must we wait for the day to arrive?
How far must we walk so we can survive?
How much more pain?
How much more suffering must we go through?
Together, yet not.

When the time comes we will get our revenge
Afraid of but loved we shall be
Wherever you happen to be at this moment
Elsewhere I am, you shall see
When the time comes we will get our revenge
Afraid of but loved we shall be
Wherever you happen to be at this moment
Elsewhere I am, you shall see

What more can we wish and hope
But to meet just one last time
Awaiting for the beautiful day
That arrives so soon, so fine

Fate has torn us all apart
Considering life I've had enough
Fate has torn us all apart
Considering life I've had enough
Fate has torn us all apart
Considering life I've had enough
Fate has torn us all apart
Considering life I've had enough

The songs we used to play
So beautiful, so wonderful
The chanting and the harmony we knew
The singing and the dancing by the sunset
Children talking only me and you
At our place by the sea
Stars reflecting in our eyes
Sitting on a fallen tree
Ancient still it lies

You are the forgotten one
Lost so far away
With nobody by your side
Lost in the depths of time
Lost within your life
We all shall reunite
Track Name: Under I Stood
Those who create work and misery for me
With the time I'm supposed to be free
Are only making death worse for themselves
I'll laugh and they'll scream with the torture in hell
And I'll show each and all
That once they were fools
Thinking I am the one who was crazy
And they'll plead for the help
And I'll give them a hug
Before throwing them down even further

I'm supposed to be free today
Listening to the eternal sound of my music
Rejoice and be glad
But they've stopped all of that
With the work and the pointless shit they hand out
To fuck with my mind
But I'll fuck with theirs back
And then they'll understand
And they'll take it all back

Let me be free
What is it to you?
If I don't succeed,
Why the fuck would you care?
Just live your own life
Don't try and live mine
Don't tell me what to do
Concentrate on you
Don't fuck with my mind

'cos I get, every single bit of revenge
When that moment arrives
When I get the permission
To reveal who I am
And give all revenge
Who have messed with me all of my life
So beware and don't laugh
I see more than you know
And until the time arrives nobody will ever understand

But when they do amazement will arrive
But there are many who will be left free and untouched by me
Especially the four living gods
And then you will see
The beautiful death
It all will make sense
We'll all leave this place
Together, forever
And never will you feed me this misery again
Again, again, again

It is all uncomprehendable
Until the very day when I show you all how it was planned
There is a purpose for all and especially for me
And that's why it took me so long to find out
That music it was that created everything
And music it is that destroys
When each and every one of you
Learn to wield music
Be prepared for the wonderful time
For music is the answer
The key to the freedom
And one day you'll all understand
Let me show you the way
Do not follow me

No right has been given to you
To control our mind
Track Name: Leaving This Land
Watching the troubles of the world
Very closely
Falling softly
Unavoidable

The blinding, piercing brightness
Suddenly switched to darkness
Together from within
We form a light
Unable to be used by many people
A gift we all now know as happiness
Instead we fight the time away
And lose the light within the day

I am one unable to find the freedom
Unable to find the happiness
Falling, falling into darkness
DEATH

I was running and running faster and faster
But fell face first in the sand
Collapsing and sinking
Unable to stop
Gently I'm leaving this land

Depression sweeping through my body
Slamming it hard towards the ground
Screaming for forgiveness and a cure for loneliness
Nobody comes
Nobody comes to help me
Me

Feeling my way to the end of the darkness
So it can all be over
Forever finished

Where have you gone?
I love you
I'm stuck! help!
I love you
How did I get to such a place?
Help!
I love you!
Who has trapped me here?
I love you, I love you, I love you,
I love you

Soft and quiet the summer night
The breath of death sweeps in
Picks me up and takes me off
A new home no more skin

I was running and running faster and faster
But fell face first in the sand
Collapsing and sinking unable to stop
Gently I'm leaving this land

Lost to everybody who ever knew of me
Lost to all who loved and also those who hated me
Everybody ever known
Everybody gone
Everybody ever known
Everybody gone

Never will I emerge back
Life is over, forgotten
A life of both memory and pain
Fighting for unknown rewards
What a trap that memory was
What a horrible little game

Wishes haven't ever come true but please
Come to me, for I know not where you hide

I stand with my arms open
I will help you as I may
I will be there for whom I love
Comforting she who trembles in my very arms
In my arms
Waiting

We once were blind
But darkness will soon perish
Happiness will make our faces shine
Then one day we'll find

A place we all will cherish
A place no longer known to time

The time has finally arrived to laugh
This next song is truly fucking crazy
Some parts sound like shit
W-O-A-H
This sounds like shit
It is made to enjoy
Joy being the operative word
Jump for joy
Your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
You're fucking crazy
But so are we all
Track Name: It Is Fucking Crazy
You're fucking crazy.

Welcome to one of the craziest songs
That you will ever hear
I'm absolutely serious
When I say it's crazy
Enjoy it if you can.

What a funny thing how typical,
Watching your life, the life of fools,
When you see the way of the sun you'll laugh
What the fuck am I on about?
What a funny thing how typical,
Watching your life, the life of fools,
When you see the way of the sun you'll laugh
What the fuck am I on about?

And then I saw you and I,
Spending the rest of our lives,
Spending the rest of
Spending the rest of
Spending the rest of our lives

See, told you it was crazy
Do you agree with me so far?
Are you agreeing with me?
I hope you're agreeing with me
If you don't agree, you definitely will...soon

Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy
Jump for joy, your life's a toy
For you to enjoy

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

I did warn you, but you didn't listen
Or maybe you did

You're fucking crazy
You're fucking crazy
We're all fucking crazy
I'm fucking crazy
You're fucking crazy
We're all fucking crazy
We are crazy
Fucking crazy

It's lame as a game, it's insane
Isn't it a pain? A bit like rain

Whoah this sounds like shit
This sounds like shit
This sounds like shit
This sounds like shit

Yeah this is a bit better than that shit

Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy,
You're insane, I'm insane,
Everybody is insane

Well at the beginning you may not have agreed it was insane
Or you may have
Uh by now you should certainly realize
How crazy it was
And it may even be one of the craziest things you've ever listened to
Just like I said,
Thank you.

You're fucking crazy.
Track Name: Death
Anybody
That gets in your way
You're sorry
For what you have done
The only thing that is left
Is shoot yourself right through the head
Simple as that
There's no going back

Everybody crying over your grave
You did it 'cos you thought you were brave
Why did you do it?
You're now gone forever
Lost in the wild,
Return you will never

Why would you do that to us?
How did you get right through us?
When will you understand?
The rules of life, the life of man.
Track Name: Patience
How much longer must we wait?
Counting days in hands of fate
The ones we love, the ones we hate
The hook they gave, we took their bait

And now look where we find ourselves
Screaming tortured halls of hell
Confusion bundled up within
We all live a life of sin
It's all our fault, we know it is
To watch the world pass by like this
Suffocation we're slowly dying
A life of truth, a life of lying
Opposites compose the halls
We're scared confused
A bunch of fools
Blinded by the light of day
Fuck them all, we'll have our way

Singing
Those who follow their own paths
Escape the misery
Break the walls and smash the chains
We will all be free

The world is big, the mountains tall
We're trapped behind these little walls
Told which step to take each day
We're punished if we turn up late

Who creates such stressful things?
Why cut birds off from their wings?
Why keep us so low in illusion?
Who gave you permission for intrusion?
Into our lives and into our minds
To tell the world what you can find
Pretend it's yours
You created it
You made use of it and then destroyed it
Why are we all so damn blind?
Brought up to be trapped in our mind
Fooling ourselves
Day by day
Fuck them all
We'll have our way

Singing
Those who follow their own paths
Escape the misery
Break the walls and smash the chains
We will all be free
Together we'll be raised up high
And singing happily
Vanished are the ones who forced us
Into suffering

They'll fight back and we'll be stronger
Don't put up with shit any longer
Fuck them, fuck them, be yourself
Life doesn't always have to be about wealth

They'll fight back and we'll be stronger
Don't put up with shit any longer
Fuck them, fuck them, be yourself
Life doesn't have to be about wealth

They'll fight back and we'll fight harder
Free your mind then they will rather
Die than live, they'll see their wrongs
That we planned this all along

All along, All along
Take this song,
With you all along

We were there for you
All along
Always here for you
All along
There for years and years
All along
Watch our for the end is near
We know what we speak about
I beg you all to just watch out
There for you
Here for you
All along

All along.
Track Name: Butterfly To The Caterpillar
When the flowers are placed upon my grave
And the living people weep
No longer will I be a slave
Awakening from my sleep

It's just so hard to be so brave
When they all think you're a creep
They tell you how you're supposed to behave
So depression grows inside so deep

Has anybody entered your life
And tried to change things round
And helped to split your mind in half
So you'd rather have them drowned

I tell you it is terrible
When there's no place to call home
Forever tripping here and there
And feeling so alone
And the one that loved you oh so much
Has had to split her love in half
For the man you hate so very much
No forgiveness in my heart

But the day will come when life itself
Means nothing to you as well
And the time will come when revenge is used
To bring you down to hell

The meadows and the forests
And the memories so great
The youngest, the warmest times
Without my darkened fate

My mind will not be understood
By anyone I know
I listen to the piano play
While I lie in bed in utter sorrow

There is no going back
Today is just tomorrow
I finally fall asleep
With tears upon my pillow

The times were once so great
But now they've all gone black
I've finally learned to hate
There is no going back

I have done nothing wrong
Which is why I've been rewarded
With someone who makes me feel as one
So I don't have to feel so wounded

I tell you it is terrible
When there's no place to call home
Forever tripping here and there
And feeling so alone
And the one that loved you oh so much
Has had to split her love in half
For the man you hate so very much
No forgiveness in my heart

But the unsacred times when I'm all alone
Just thoughts upon my mind
I feel like disappearing forever
Far before my time

I can feel deep within myself
Emotions filled with hate
But the opposites exist also
I decide which ones I want

Everything's so cold and dark
The stone's upon the floor
Before I leave I'll leave my mark
And then I'll close the door.
