ROBOT
(Blaze Bayley band)

Robot slave with silent rage
Growing inside of me
My first word is no
And so my birth now they will see

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

Free they say I'm free
If I conform and I comply
I am only free to be
just what they decide

I am
I hear
I see
I feel
I think therefore I am

 

SAMURAI
(Blaze Bayley band)

I am absolutely now prepared to pay the price
Even if I ultimately pay with my own life
Ready to give everything, to sacrifice it all
and without the will to die I know that I cant win

No mind, no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Deep within myself is a decision that i've made
To win and overwhelm those who would want to bury me
To never ever yield and even with my own last breath
to remain defiant never to admit defeat

No mind no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Are you willing to die
Die
Like a samurai

No mind no pain
Nothing can hold me back
Now I stand without fear
In the valley of death

I'm willing to die
Samurai
Willing to die
Like a Samurai

 
 

THE MAN WHO WOULD NOT DIE
(Blaze Bayley band)

I have a noose around my neck
It is spun from my hopes and dreams
that went so wrong they now are choking me

The hanging man I am not hanged
To my last breath I must now cling
Until I face those who did this to me

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

They made these gallows from black lies
But the shining light of this truth
will make them crumble and I will be free

Free to take back what once was mine
And then from gallows of bright steel
Hang them with the same rope they made for me

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
when their necks break then
I have done what must be done

I am the man who would not die

On and on I'm cursed to live
Cursed with life until
I have done what must be done

Hang them high with their own lies
when their necks break then
I have done what must be done

On and on I'm cursed to live
3x
I am the man who would not die

 
 

SPEED OF LIGHT
(Bayley, Wray, Slater)

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
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

 
 

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

 
 

IDENTITY
(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 longe

 
 

EVOLUTION
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Singer, Naylor)

Eyes never tire, they never blink, they never fade
And they always see
And without fear, and without greed, emotionless
They view us logically

The age of machines destined to rule all
The world of machines behind the fire wall

The evolution

No need for doubt no need for tears
No need for wealth no need for sympathy
They only wait bide their time
Calculate it all so patiently

It will come like the shadow of a cloud on a summer's day
Like the shadow in a picture, never goes away
Like a picture on a screen that you know is a lie
There's an enemy within that you can visualise.

 
 

REACH FOR THE HORIZON
(Bayley, Hilborne)

In every way the wish went wrong
The gift was tainted by science fact
Their minds were changed, a brother born
A perfect new born little man

Some they lose when they are born
With a less than perfect code
Others dreaming of the stars
Never feeling ice or cold

Doomed to be mediocre or nothing at all
Doomed a part of the background as plain as the wall

Reach, reach out, reach out for the horizon
Reach, reach out, reach out, reach for the stars

Society includes the rules
To exclude and invalidate
This ladder can not be climed
By the god child degenerate

Has he got just what it takes
To go and take just what he wants
To find the strength, to get the place
The place he feels that he belongs

 
 

THE TRUTH REVEALED
(Bayley, Wray, Slater)

I thought that I belonged
I was part of this world
I was so wrong
I tried to end this world
The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed
The truth is revealed

 
 

MEANT TO BE
(Bayley, Wray)

All the things that I never said spinning round in my aching head
All the things that I meant to do, was it meant to be?
Was a time that I almost died, felt just like a thousand times
I wondered if it was my time, was it meant to be?
As I live within walls and follow their rules
I've taken a path that I just did not choose
I do everything that they expect me to
Have I now even turned my own back on the truth?
All my life I have followed dreams, never cared where they've taken me
Chasing shadows because I believed it was meant to be
There's something that I have now seen makes me question my beliefs
Does the end justify the means, is it meant to be?
I must now make a stand and break out of these walls
I'll make my own rules, I'll chart my own course
They expect me to fall, they expect me to die
But I've stood here before and I'm sick of their lies
Is it meant to be? Is it meant to be?
Is it meant to be?
Now I stand as a man and I don't see their walls
I make my own rules, I chart my own course
No use them expecting me to fall that's not me
I won't let them win, it's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be
It's just not meant to be

 
 

LIFE AND DEATH
(Bayley, Slater, Wray)

He lay broken, broken down and the pieces on the ground
are where they trod and ground him further down
Where is the glue that mends a broken man
that can't defend himself against
the slings and arrows of this world
Where has he gone
Like a circle without end
his life seems to repeat again
and in the circle he is trapped alone
Alone and then he starts to think
just what did bring him to the brink
is this ending where he must begin to carry on
Is it life and death to you
Is it your whole world you're going to lose
Is it life and death to you
Is it life and death you've got to choose
Looking back to face the past
to put his face up to the glass
remembers where he has come from
He just spent so long on the edge
he walked along the highest ledge
He just forget that anyone can fall so carry on
Failing down's a hazard when you're standing up
and if you fall, remember that you can get up again
if you don’t know where you belong
wherever you feet safe is horde
and if you are weak
member you ran prow strong so grow strong

 
 

WILL TO WIN
(Bayley, Slater, Wray)

Forget about what you think you know
About your life
What would you have if you could have
what you want?
People don’t even know they're truly alive
they’re just sleep walking
Things un-important to you
just let them slide
then wake up fighting
All of them fear what they do not know
All of that fear they pour onto you
You have the will to win
the courage to fight
to get through anything
The will to win
Believe you can beat them down
and rise above
Those bastards will hate you
for what you want to be
they are the noose and the millstone
you must survive
They’re Self defeating
They try make you an outcast
a freak and a fool
So fuck them
You can fold this world into a shape
a thing that will fit in your mind
You own realty reflecting your dream
reflecting the world that’s inside
