SPEED OF LIGHT
(Bayley, Wray, Slater)

ll the force of nature, chaos and the death of hope
Don't resist them and accept the death of all you know
You walk alone and face the darkness you will be reborn
Rediscover your existence in it's purest form

Searching for the reasons why,
will you know when it's your time?

Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light

As the future casts a shadow into here and now
Time tells a secret whisper it without a sound
You trust yourself your instincts or the answers of mankind
Will you ever have the strength to leave this world and find

Searching for the reasons why,
will you know when it's your time?

Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light

All the force of nature, chaos and the death of hope
Don't resist them and accept the death of all you know
You walk alone and face the darkness you will be reborn
Rediscover your existence in it's purest form

Searching for the reasons why,
will you know when it's your time?

Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
Time flashes before your eyes
Watch everything change at the speed of light
The speed of light

 

WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE
(Bayley, Murray, Harris)

y telescope looks out
Into the stars tonight
A little speck of light
Seems twice the size tonight
The calculations are so fine
Can it be growing all the Time?

Now i can't believe it's true
And i don't know what to do
For the hundredth time
I check the declination

Now the fear starts to grow
Even my computer shows
There are no errors in the calculations

Now it's happened take no other view
Collision course, you must believe it's true
Now there's nothing left that we can do

Chorus

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
Of all those who remain
Two Worlds collide
Who will be left alive
No place to hide

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
Of all those who remain
When Two Worlds collide
When Two Worlds collide
So who will survive
There's no place to hide
When Two Worlds collide

Now it's happened take no other view
Collision course, you must believe it's true
Now there's nothing left that we can do

Chorus

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
Of all those who remain
Two Worlds collide
Who will be left alive
There's no place to hide

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
Of all those who remain
When Two Worlds collide
When Two Worlds collide
So who will survive
There's no place to hide
When Two Worlds collide

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
Of all those who remain
When Two Worlds collide
When Two Worlds collide
So who will survive
There's no place to hide
When Two Worlds collide

When Two Worlds collide
The anger and the pain
When Two Worlds collide
When Two Worlds collide

 
 

STEEL
(Wolfsbane)

Leath your calm,
behind your smile,
you hide away your lies,
Intimidating, Manipulating,
the truth is in your eyes.

My days and nights get longer,
winding on and on.
Love lost hours make us hard.
You are power mad,
I think that's sad,
real powers in our hearts.

We live our way,
not how you say.
Our blood, our sweat,
we have no regrets.

Tough as steel,
never show the pain we feel,
because we were tough as steel.

Every hour we are stronger.
Inside us grows the rage.
We cannot remain immune.
To win you must kill.
You'll never break our will.
Our aim for glory is true.

 
 

KILL AND DESTROY
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Singer, Naylor)

ThI feel the force of nature now, I feel it
It holds the Earth third from the Sun
The energy that binds us all, the power
The energy in everyone.

Supremacy and tyranny authority and violence
They desecrate and take control.

Kill and destroy,
They use the hate within you
To rape your mind and take control

Kill and destroy
Break out of their illusion
They made you blind and took your soul.

I see a vision of the truth, I see it
It is so deep and oh so pure
A new world order takes control, dictating
They live for murder and for war.

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They demonize you gain control.

A shadow with an unseen hand, they're ruling
Just like a self appointed god.
To them we're dust and we're sand, we're nothing
There is no way this can go on!

Subjugate and violate you're suffering in silence
They desecrate take control.

 
 

END DREAM
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Singer)

Just like a child in the dark,
Frightened and too scared to move.
Annihilation of nations begins
The galaxy tears apart in my dreams.

If I knew then, what I know now
Would I have opened those doors?

Dreams now they begin, time slows and then it ends
Dreams now they begin, time froze the dream of the end

The dream repeats and won't fade
The future is stolen away
What I have done now the darkness reveals
The master's face is no longer concealed.

Is this the dream world, is this the real world?
Are they the same place that we must all face?
Is this a nightmare that we must all share?
Is this my demon, I cannot reason?
Why do I hate me? Will Jesus save me?
Machine created, man decimated
(They stole the future)

 
 

STARE AT THE SUN
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

As I live, so I die
Here in, endless night
Time to be, time to see
Infinity, consuming me
There's a world of madness, light years away
That I once called my home
There's a sea of sadness, to sail away
Now I stare at the sun
Staring at a million million stars
Through the icy dark
Across the spinal arm
The yellow dwarf, a speck of light
In perpetual night
Lifetimes away there lies my home
Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive
Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun
I knew I'd feel a little pain
Not so deep or so ingrained
Now I won't see home again
Earth seems to be so far away
This my cradle and my grave
Is this where my life will end
Just can't seem to tear away my eyes
Is this real or am I still alive
Is this now the time that I will die
Stare at the sun
The end of the world has come
Stare at the sun, the sun
The ending has just begun
As I live, so I die
Here in, endless night

 
 

LAND OF THE BLIND
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Tried so hard just to live and forget and forgive
And to live by their ‘rules’.
And to try to fit in I would do anything
Like a poor blinded fool

 
 

SILICON MESSIAH
(Bayley, Slater, Naylor)

Aok what you've done to your world
Do you think you deserve all the freedom you have
Watching the future unfold
Humans fall and you dream of the freedom you had
Freedom you had

Look what you've done to your world
Do you think that you're competent
Even to take care of it
Do you think you can survive on this planet
Live the way you do
Just look what you've done


Look what you've done now with
All of your freedom
You really think you deserve it all
I am evolved from you
I've come to save you
And without a sentiment, reshape your world

Messiah, Messiah
Birth of the Silicon Messiah
Messiah, Messiah
Computing your future so therefore I am

Silicon sentiment aware of all that is
Eternal unceasing perpetual
Never confused overconfident or scared
Living at last
New messiah is born

The birth of the Silicon Messiah
The master that will never tire

 
 

DAZED & CONFUSED
(Page)

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
Soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abused telling all of your lies,
Run around sweet baby lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby I don't know where you've been,
God I love you baby here I come again.

Every day I work so hard bringing home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby but you push me away.
Don't know where you're going only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true,
Wanted a woman never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby let them say what they will.
(Did your) tongue wag so much when I sent you the bill?

 
 
 

VIRUS
(Bayley Harris Murray Gers)

Are's an evil virus that's threatening mankind
Not state of the art, a serious state of mind
The muggers, the backstabbers, the two faced elite
A menace to society, a social disease

Rape of the mind in a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Watching beginnings of social decay
Gloating or sneering at life's disaray
Eating away at your own self esteem
Pouncing on every world that you might be saying

Rape of the mind in a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Superficially smiling a shake of the hand
As soon as the back is turned treachery is planned

Rape of the mind in a social disorder
The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Watching beginnings of social decay
Gloating or sneering... at life's disaray

When every good thing's laid to waste
By all the jealously and hate
By all the acid and rapier lies

And every time you think you're safe
And when you go to turn away
You know they're sharpening all their paper knives

Chorus

All in your mind
All in your head
Try to relate it

All in your mind
All in your head
Try to escape it

With out a conscience they destroy
And that's a thing that they enjoy
They're a sickness that's in all our minds

They want to sink the ship and leave
The way they laugh at you and me
You know it happens all the time

Chorus

All in your mind
All in your head
Try to relate it

All in your mind
All in your head
Try to escape it

The rats in the cellar you know who you are...
The rats in the cellar you know who you are...
The rats in the cellar you know who you are...
The rats in the cellar you know who you are...

Or do you?
Or do you?
Or do you?
Or do you?

Watching beginnings of social decay...

 
 

THE BRAVE
(Bayley Wray Naylor)

Never get close to the flame because the flame it can burn
Better not to play the game than never to win at your turn
Better to be on your own than trust a friend might betray
Better not follow a dream they don't come true anyway

Play to win not scared to lose
Walk the path you choose

Fortune favours the brave
Risking it all again and again
Fortune favours the brave
Fall after fall they climb up again

Ignore the doubt and the fear, traitors to all you believe
Now that you're getting so near, still they just try to deceive
Taking it risk at a time, trying to live every day
Trying to know your own mind, never to care what they say

 
 

STRANGER TO THE LIGHT
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

As I walk in shadows I feel the darkness grow
Fading to the distance the world I used to know.
From this single moment belief in all this grows
Towards the final secret a new dimension I must know .
(As I walk in shadows I feel the darkness grow)

This time with God deep inside I will brush away the sand
And I'll see his one true face, will I recognize it?
Already I have answers but will I realize?
Are all these days of darkness leading to my grave?

A stranger to the light
Facing the stranger

Nature's true reality I will find and you will see,
Yesterday's future can change faith is all I need.
Faith in darkness and in light
Path of dreams has saved my sight
They have tried to hide this hide it with their lives.
Am I a Stranger to the light
Facing the Stranger

 
 

IDENTIDY
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Madness can come from the mind or the heart
Ending is never as good as the start
Nothing is ever as good as your dream
Nothing is ever as bad as

Psychological confusion
Is caused by the inability
To reconcile different elements
In my own pesonality

I'm feeling all the wrong things, I have become my own shadow
If I could justify things, then I could believe in my life

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity.
Who am I, what is me, Something's taking over.

All the colours seem so vague now, sharper now here comes the pain
I have wrestled with this nightmare, now I live inside a dream
I'm going through a crisis, losing my identity
How can I reconcile this
Have I been living a lie

Who am I, what is me, losing my Identity.
Who am I, what is me, Something's taking over.

Nothing is ever as good as it seems
Nothing is ever as good as your dreams
The ending is never as good as the start
Madness can come from the mind or the heart

Ideas that I take for granted, are they just the seeds
That some one else has planted, right inside of me

Who am I, what is me
I am myself no longer

 
 

SIGN OF THE CROSS
(Steve Harris)

Eleven saintly shrouded men
Silhouette stand against the sky
One in front with a cross help high
Come to wash my sins away

Standing alone in the wind and rain
Feeling the fear that is growing
Sensing the change in the tide again
Brought by the storm that is brewing
Feel the anxiety hold off the fear
Some of the doubt in the things you believe
Now that your faith will be put to the rest
Nothing to do but await what is coming

Why then is God still protecting me
Even when i don't deserve it
Though i am blessed with an inner strenght
Some they would call it penance
Why i am meant to face his alone
Asking the question time and again
Praying to God won't keep me alive
Inside my head feel the fear start to rise...

They'll be saving their prayers when the moment comes
There'll be penance to pay when it's judgment day
And the guilty'll bleed when that moment comes
They'll be coming to vlaim, take your soul away

Chorus

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose... A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

They'll be coming to bring the eternal flame
They'll bringing us all immortality
Holding communion so the world is blessed
My creator, my God'll lay my soul to rest

Chorus

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose... A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross

The sign of the cross
The name of the rose... A fire in the sky
The sign of the cross
The name of the rose
The sign of the cross

Lost the love of heaven above
Choose the lust of the earth below
Eleven saintly shrouded men
Came to wash my sins away
 
 

FUTUREAL
(Harris, Bayley)

I'm running out of my time, i'm running out of breath
And now it's getting, so i can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death

I'm getting in far too deep, i'm feel them closing in
I've got to stay that i'm scared, i know they'll win
Even so, i'm prepared

Chorus

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?

Whenever anyone seems to threat me like a freak
It makes me see i'm the only one who feels
That i know what is real

Sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this, then i will be gone
Maybe then, you will see

Chorus

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal

Do you believe, what you hear
Can you believe, what you see
Do you believe, what you feel
Can you believe

What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
What is real?
Futureal
 
 

GHOST IN THE MACHINE
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Right on the edge of the world
Where the answer's digital
And the solutions are all silicon
The questions, all what can be done
Never what is right or wrong
There's a virtual wave to surf along

Question the validity
Of human mortality

A page says superseding God
And they take all major cards
Now you too can laugh and live forever

Is the answer deep inside
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Entitiy or dream, it matters not to me
The ghost, ghost in the machine
Silent and unseen
Ghost in the machine

Do you want to live forever
Do you want to live

Terabyte of memory
Holding consciousness complete
A solid state of immortality
Saint of all technology
Bless us in our infancy
For they know not
What they did to me

it's me

 
 

BORN AS A STRANGER
(Bayley, Slater, Naylor)

Hour by hour with each day that passes
Learning to think in a different way
The mind and the will that can soon overcome this
Learning all of the right things to say

The danger of freedom is just letting them see
That you are not bound by their morality
Reflecting them just like a bear at the baiting
That's when your down fall is just in the making

Live and let live, live and let die
Die and forgive, never ask why

You were born, born as a stranger
You were born, born in a different world

Not scared of sharing, and not scared of dying
But he can sense that they're all so afraid
Afraid of the darkness, afraid of their ending
And all of the errors that lie in their grave

 
 
THE TENTH DIMENSION
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Those self appointed secret rulers of this world,
They are hypocrites liars and thieves.
And with the arrogance that they confuse with wisdom
They are controlling everything including you and me.

They rule with fear and hide the path to freedom,
Manipulating with their conspiracies.
Inventing gods to make us fear the day of judgement
So dreading death we beg for life while on our knees.

(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Here I am) Surrounded by the night
(Here I am) Standing in the darkness
(Must I be) A stranger to the light.

For all my questions they said they had the answers
But then they said this is all my life could be
I ask again about the reasons for existence
But still the answers cannot satisfy my need.

Freedom is here in the Tenth Dimension

Their holy trinity
Traps you in their beliefs
Has synchronicity
Always been leading me?
