Mark Of Cain 04:45
Oh a precious life A piece of bad advice as you know the higher the deeper you go Do they know your name? Can they feel your pain? Do they just stare At all of black that you wear The champagne and cocaine You use to numb the pain You wear the mark of Cain But is it all in Vain You're always crazy and loud You want to be in that crowd The center of the scene Right where you wanted to be Oh a flicker flame A brand to Mark your name Let it burn Don't let the party adjourn Wanted to be the Queen Since you turned 16 Another plug in your ear To make it all seem real Another Crazy Tattoo? To hide a piece of you I'm only trying to Get through to you Bridge Pushing your friends away Starting a new today Keeping the wolves at bay.. Lead (over the verse) The champagne and cocaine You use to numb the pain You wear the mark of Cain But is it all in Vain Another crazy Tattoo? To hide a piece of you I'm only trying to Get through to you…don't think I'm getting through

Believe 05:13
You know you want to come away with me You know you want to catch the ride You always wondered what it would be like, To lose you mind Your dreams they blow out like the candle light Leaving you standing in the dark You wonder how the years went by so fast, You never left your mark The plans that never happened Left empty in your soul Desire keeps you yearning For more... The cravings unrequited Such glamorous despair And when you hit the bottom You rise, again... The sands of time are slowly running out The desperation leaves you lost You feel the hunger to achieve in life No matter what the cost And if you find what you were looking for That dream beyond the edge of sight Things aren't always as they seem to be The prize not worth the fight So believe, so believe…in your dream

How did we ever get this close And never really cross the line A semi-bitter tasting dose For Medicated peace of mind How did you ever break away? Forget all of our yesterdays You said you’d never be this way How can we feel alive today? Still you haven't let me in Social suicide If you Hide, I'll seek again I'll Draw you inside I won't let go.. It's not a religion It's not an opinion Your 1 in a million I won't let go. It's not a reaction Or a fading attraction Your 1 in a million I won't let go. Still you haven't let me in Social suicide Without words we comprehend Our Silent lullaby I won't let go.. It's not a religion It's not an opinion Your 1 in a million I won't let go. It's not a reaction Or a fading attraction Your 1 in a million I won't let go.

Hallelujah 03:37
Your pretty eyes had shined again A fire burned inside of them What burned so bright now seems to be fading A promise broke, your faith renewed The Cravings deep inside of you And what feels good tears you up inside And Now Your Eye's are fading fast You're on the floor Outside there is someone at the door Hallelujah…tonight she's coming home The needles' pierce, a sting so deep You pray the lord your soul to keep You fade away into a world unknown Under the door the first light of day A close embrace that's far away A drop of blood run down your arm to the floor And Now Your Eye's are fading fast You're on the floor Outside there is someone at the door Hallelujah tonight she's coming home

A Shame 03:38
Do you know the way to happiness Do you feel inside you just can’t rest The dreams you hide deep inside They make you want to be alive I know you almost made it I know you almost made it I feel the fire in your eyes They pierce the soul, so filled with life You feel the burden of the years So close yet trouble seems so near I know you almost made it I know you almost made it I know you almost made things right…oh no This is, this is This is, this is This is, this is, a shame…a shame The road you travel isn't clear No way to know the end is near I tried to tell you many times There's more to life than our desires I know you almost made it I know you almost made it I know you almost made things right…oh no This is, this is This is, this is This is, this is, a shame…a shame This is, this is This is, this is This is, this is, a shame…a shame

Revelation 03:09
It's intoxication of your imagination an illumination like you've never seen before It's a new affection a strange perception a strong connection like you've never had before I'll show you something..like you've never seen before There's only one thing..It will leave you wanting more It's a revelation An induced sensation it's an invitation To where you've never been before I'll show you something..like you've never seen before only one thing..but it leaves you wanting more Get on to something special Get on to something good And though you said you'd never.. You could..it's good I'll show you something..like you've never seen before There's only one thing..It will leave you wanting more Like Before

Raging Sea 04:21
You always wanted to fly But you were always scared of heights You kept your feet in the sand Cause you were never Peter Pan And all those people you've hurt The friends you buried in the dirt To know the secrets that they kept To wipe the tears that they wept Did you offer your soul? When You bought that ticket home.. Another Fix to dull the pain Another drink to keep you sane Another face in the crowd Another voice that screams out loud Another spinning of the wheel Another wound that just won't heal Another night to face alone Another place you can't call home Did you offer your soul? When You bought your ticket home.. I Know you're out there somewhere in the raging Sea Salvation's out there somewhere maybe next to me

When I was young I never had to have to see Never face reality Or to doubt democracy With so much to lose Still you hear it on the news When one man's faith Seals so many others fate Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey Is this freedom? And when our young Are Conceived yet never born In this Tempest, in this storm With no one left to mourn A blood stained street Where woman and children ate Barricaded by wire With only blackened cars on fire… Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey Is this freedom? And now the time is near To clutch for those held dear Is this the price we pay To live our lives this way Is this freedom?

Coming Home 05:37
Heat and dust, the dark of day Mud and the rust smell of decay I'm Home. I'm coming home Stench and the filth won't wash away Another tour another stay Home. I'm coming home Letters sent home that all is well Another day another hell Home. I'm coming home Explosions rip the road ahead Another soldier and friend is dead Home. I'm coming home Now there's nothing more to say, nothing left today, no more..feelings to betray, fears to strip away, nothing left for me…Nothing left of me.. We used to stand for something good To fight for those who never could People Dying We've used to stand for something strong but days are hot and the nights are long All alone…I'm Coming Home In the springtime poppies bloom But In my heart there is no room Just the space I saved for you For all the things we long to do To watch my son become a man And Help him try to understand Why we do the things we do Why we fight this fight for you. I'm coming home…I'm coming home If this is the last you hear from me Tell the son I'll never see That I fought until the end That I fell here with my friends.. I'm not coming Home

You..a twisted fantasy You..a perfect fallacy You..know the enemy You.. you’ll be the death of me eventually You..only You Can be so refined, yet so unkind to me You..only You Can be oh so blind, for all the world to see You..you try so hard to be You..a curiosity You..a new philosophy You ..plead Insanity.. it's not you see You..only You Can be so Fucked Up yet you fill your cup again You..only You Say you don’t feel loved, I given all I can.. So come on You’ve been gone so long You feel like a total stranger Is it wrong.. We've been down this road. I bury the past So you dig it up time and again You..only You Can be so refined, yet so unkind to me You..only You Can be so Fucked Up yet you fill your cup again
