Track Name: Mark Of Cain
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
Track Name: Believe
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
Track Name: One In A Million
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.
Track Name: Hallelujah
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
Track Name: A Shame
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
Track Name: Revelation
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
Track Name: Raging Sea
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
Track Name: Is This Freedom?
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?
Track Name: Coming Home
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
Track Name: Total Stranger
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
