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

 

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.

 
 

SILICON MESSIAH
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Naylor)

Look 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

 
 

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 HUNGER
(Bayley, Wray, Slater, Singer)

I am on the outside always looking in
Living alongside your world never within
Some times there are moments when I think I am involved
But I never seem to stay, don't seem to fit
I just don't belong

I live at right angles to the people that I meet
Because I am never still, not my soul and not my feet
I could walk a thousand miles, and ride a thousand more
My life seems worthless, just like footprints on the shore

Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, ruled by the hunger

From the first taste of this altered truth
I knew I could not live the way that others do
Nothing can seem to fill the emptiness inside
So still I search, never ever wait for the time or the tide

Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, a wound that cannot heal
Living on the outside, the emptiness I feel
Living on the outside, ruled by the hunger

All of the blood, all of the wine
Will become the same in time

Nothing can seem to fill the emptiness inside
So still I search, never wait for the time or the tide
I am on the outside, always looking in
Living alongside your world, never within

 
 

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 longer

 
 

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 LAUNCH
(Bayley, Wray, Singer, Naylor)

All of his life he has dreamt of this moment
Through all the blood and the work and the sweat
Focused or blinkered just so single minded
nothing could stop him when his course was set

To conquer each fear and to push every boundary
Never accepting the limits they set
What doesn't kill you can make you feel stronger
What makes you stronger gets you through each test

Oh, god speed to you

He looks to heaven and feels it surround him
Unknown unknowable foreverness
What lies at the end of this historic journey
No one can know you just take your best guess

Each thing he faces just seems so uncertain
He is strapped in for the ride of his life
Life in the hands of a hundred computers
12 million horsepower rocket to ride

Oh, God speed to you

 
 
 

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

 
 

THE DAY I FELL TO EARTH
(Bayley, Naylor)

I thought I stood on solid ground
but I was floating near the stars
And never once did I look down
I was Falling Down and how far..

To a place I cant even say my name
I'm the alien the drifter I'm to blame

The day I fell to earth

I fell to earth thought I was dead
but I was brusied and I was scared
I took the time to look around
I started climbing and how far

To a place where I am shouting out my name
I'm the alien the drifter I'm to blame

The Day I fell to earth

 
 

MOTHERFUCKERS R US
(Bayley, Wray, Naylor)

Wake up on my own and I wonder where I am.
My mind begins to clear and I begin to understand:
today I am in phoenix and I'm feeling pretty low,
would you like to skip the afternoon and get right to the show?

'Cause I live to rock,
rock all night!
Just don't care, what's wrong or right!
Livin' loud, livin' free,
you and me, the mad motherfuckers...

Drivin, I've been rollin' I've been movin' all night long,
I've been so many places I don't know where I belong.
And I can say just one thing and it's in my own defense:
right here right now's the only place where I can make some sense.

'Cause I live to rock,
rock all night!
Just don't care, what's wrong or right!
Livin' loud, livin' free,
you and me, the mad motherfuckers...

It looks like motherfuckers R us tonight!
Right over here, we've got the crazy motherfuckers!
Right over there, we got wild motherfuckers!
Right over here, we've got the insane motherfuckers!
YEAH!

And they live to rock, rock all night!
Just don't care, what's wrong or right!
Livin' loud, livin' free,
you and me, the mad motherfuckers...
Motherfuckers. Motherfuckers. Motherfuckers.

 
 

STEEL
(Wolfsbane)

ath 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.
