Some of us are born to sweet delight

No point in crying out how it's not fair

Ain't 'bout what you deserve, no matter what ya heard
We're all equal in his eyes

Won't change a thing when it's time to go
Cuz when he gets to you, no matter what ya do

Track Name: God Help Me I Like It
She's addictive as sin, like poison in my veins
Those lust filled eyes, driving me insane
She got my mojo burning like a napalm fire
Her every wish becomes my desire

There's no escaping her lust
The only thing that I trust
She got me going again
But god help me I...
Wicked light in her eyes
Got ya hypnotized
She'll take me to my end
But god help me I like it...
God help me I like it

She's a wild one, never to be tames
A goddess of love that's never known shame
She got me rivin' like and engine on overload
Burning up and about to explode

There's no escaping her lust
The only thing that I trust
She got me going again
But god help me I...
Wicked light in her eyes
Got ya hypnotized
She'll take me to my end
But god help me I like it...
There's no escaping her lust
The only thing that I trust
She got me going again
But god help me I...
Wicked light in her eyes
Got ya hypnotized
She'll take me to my end
But god help me I like it...
Track Name: Soul Food
Pack your world into boxes and bags and ship them out the door
A garbage pile full of memories

In between the coming dawn and night left wanting more
Drowning in my histories

Beg and plead, and plant the seed, your secrets safe with me
Take my life and end the pain

Oh holy water wash away whats staring back at me
Setting sun ends wild blue reign

You're so callous and cold

Jesus, leave my soul alone
I've never told you what I'm looking for
Why re-define what's lost to time
I won't be crawling to your door
Not anymore!!!

Doctor, doctor, can you hear? Lost in my sick cage
I can't find the will to breath

Broken, beaten, black and blue, a pitfall of your rage
Life and death they scream at me

You're so callous and cold

Jesus, leave my soul alone
I've never told you what I'm looking for
Why re-define what's lost to time
I won't be crawling to your door
Not anymore!!!

Drowning deep in this dark hole
I think I've been here maybe once before
20 years and still another day
I can't see the sunlight anymore

In the height you had the right, but now that's come and gone
Mrs mayhem in her absencey

Blinding light of starry night, it's all so far beyond
The chains that bind me set me free

Jesus, leave my soul alone
I've never told you what I'm looking for
Why re-define what's lost to time
I won't be crawling to your door

Jesus, leave my soul alone
I've never told you what I'm looking for
Why re-define what's lost to time
I won't be crawling to your door
Not anymore!!!
Track Name: Black Scales
He comes from his lofty mountaintop
Breathing fire and brimstone
Once he's started he ain't ever gonna stop

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

His heart's shriveled, blackened, dark as coal
Stripped to ash and brittle bone
He's got himself quite the hunger for your gold

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll

A cry of thunder, a final warning sign
Then endless applause
There's no hope in the empty firelight

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

Once before we've read this story-line
The world clenched in his jaws
All the prophets foretold of war in time

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll

The situation is looking pretty grim
Come join the preacher and tell me your sins
Why'd you even sell your soul to him?

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

He comes from his lofty mountaintop
Breathing fire and brimstone
Once he's started he ain't ever gonna stop

Run, you'd better run
You'd better run for your lives

You don't climb no burning mountain
You gotta feel it in your soul
Black Scales will hunt you slowly
You're lost baby, but me? I'm on a roll
Track Name: Sunshine
These wall close in on me, they're getting closer
I hear you call my name, why aren't you with me
I'm here alone, still as a stone, a statue
Nothing has changed, and time has stopped moving

I still inhale the smoke, the smell of ashes
I hear the scream, the please, the growing desperate
Please god, save me, get me out of this nightmare
The price I've paid my life for my survival

Wait, I'll just stay wide awake

Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines on

Can't sleep, can't eat, can't breath and growing weaker
I'm here, not here, not there, not in denial
The strong stay strong, the weak a trampled under
This pain is all I know, into forever

The truth, the lie, the why, the cold, the ugly
Insane, deranged, untamed, decent to madness
I live, I die, I rise, but for what reason?
I can't deny I'll die among the ashes

Wait, I'll just stay wide awake
Prey, pray the lord, my soul to take

Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines on

I still inhale the smoke
I hear the scream, the plead
Please god save me, get me
The price I've paid, my life, for my survival

Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines on
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines
Woah and the sun shines on
Track Name: Fear
On the mountain, you'll find me fallen
You break my back so I'll never reach the sun

On the mountain you'll see me crawlin'
through the mud, I'll never find someone

(Oh ooh ohhh)
(Oh ooh ohhh)

On the mountain, where no trees grow
In my shallow grave, please just leave me here

On the mountain, I'll stay here wastin'
I've seen your face, now I'm trapped in worst fear

(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear

Preaching Fear:
Unconverted man walk over the pit of hell fire on a wanted coveny
God shall not pitty but laugh at their calamity
The righteous company in heaven shall rejoice in the execution of god's judgement
And shall sing while the smoke rises up forever
The wretched bodies of condemned shall pillar, and blazing those living in the fire

(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear

(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear
(Oh ooh ohhh) It's all I fear

I'll overlook my wasteland While you're far away
I've seen your foolish folly Now there nothing left to fear

Nothing left to fear
Nothing left to fear
Nothing left to fear
Nothing left to fear
Track Name: Outside Looking in
Sometimes lift ain't fair, truth so hard to see
Sometimes the love you wait just ain't meant to be

When I first saw you face I knew you were the one
Those first few months spent with you, brighter than the sun
But it didn't take too long 'for you smile turned in to tears
Burned our bond to ashes now, the sum of my own fears
And there's nothing I can do...

Even though it tears me up, I won't try to cut in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I know my place is here, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
And even with this hollow heart, don't you dare go and let me in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I'm right where I below, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)

There was once a time I put a smile across your face
Now when you hear my voice, all you feel is sick disgrace
Don't deserve forgiveness no, I deserve the blame
Wish I could travel back in time, never hear your name
And there's nothing I can do...

Even though it tears me up, I won't try to cut in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I know my place is here, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
And even with this hollow heart, don't you dare go and let me in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I'm right where I below, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside, outside looking in
(Outside looking in)

Even though it tears me up, I won't try to cut in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I know my place is here, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
And even with this hollow heart, don't you dare go and let me in
(Outside looking in)
Cuz I'm right where I below, I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
(Outside looking in)
(Outside looking in)
(Outside looking in)
(Outside looking in)

I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
I'm on the outside looking in
(Outside looking in)
Track Name: Babylon
Welcome to Babylon
These days we're living in a state of ruin
They led us here, but we're no where near
The time and place becoming clear

Welcome to the aftermath
I feel I'm more machine than human
Head in a noose, please cut me loose,
We won't be slaves any more

Tear it all down
We'll start from scratch
It's finally time
To start to build it back

Tear down the walls
Welcome to the fall of Babylon
x4

Welcome to revival
Risen from the ashes and back for more
We've broke our bonds and broke our chains
And there's nothing left to get in our way




Welcome to the rebirth
The rising tide you can't ignore
The old kings dead, we took his head
It's right there cold on the floor

Tear it all down
We'll start from scratch
It's finally time
To start to build it back

Tear down the walls
Welcome to the fall of Babylon
x4

And baby you can't fight change
And baby these times are strange
And baby we're not gonna wait any longer
She had to die so she could come back stronger

Tear down the walls
Welcome to the fall of Babylon
x4

Tear down Babylon x4
Track Name: Dark Passenger
Lost and trapped in a sterile hell
Locked away, told I'm unwell
Taken to a place where madness lies
Treated like a leper with the devil's eyes

The words they're telling, their all lies
Told by a devil in disguise
Every piece of me starts to slip
And no one here wants me to get my grip

Lost inside my twisted mind
Can't find peace, just more pain
Words like daggers in my brain
Locked away in my mental cage
Can't find peace, just more pain
Trapped in the prison that is my brain

Rotting walls around me closing in
Paying the price for imagined sins
Try to get free but I cannot go
The dark passenger is in control

The man in the mirror, he ain't me
The demon inside is released
No more fight, I know my roll
The beast has won, I lost my soul

Lost inside my twisted mind
Can't find peace, just more pain
Words like daggers in my brain
Locked away in my mental cage
Can't find peace, just more pain
Trapped in the prison that is my brain

Now I am unafraid
Are you proud of what you made?
Empty thoughts I can't hold back
God help me, why'd I even want to?

Lost inside my twisted mind
Can't find peace, just more pain
Words like daggers in my brain
Locked away in my mental cage
Can't find peace, just more pain
Trapped in the prison that is my brain
Track Name: Stand Up, Wake Up
Chaos reigns, who's to blame, nations fall
The writing's on the wall
Reason dies, monsters rise, as foretold
The centre does not hold


Want it, need it, touch it, feed it
x4


The worse amongst us rise, but don't avert your eyes

Oceans boil, sterile soil, death with haste
Our homes are laid to waste
Thrones of waste, built on hate, strong survive
The weak they eat alive

Want it, need it, touch it, feed it
x4

But fear not this fight, for we can win this night

Stand up, wake up, watch the darkness rising
See it, face it, be the one we need right now
x2

Sound Byte
Solo

Want it, need it, touch it, feed it
x4

Stand up, wake up, watch the darkness rising
See it, face it, be the one we need right now
x2
Track Name: Torn To Pieces
Woke up today in our old bed
Rolling over to taste you lips, steal a kiss
To bask in your love, and touch your finger tips

But then the dream, it fades away
And I'm reminded of that day, that I saw
And I lost you to your demons and your pain

I'm lost and torn to pieces

Never ever wanted someone else
but I never helped you love yourself, couldn't see
And I kill myself for all the signs I miss

Pain as real as broken art
grief keeps tearing me apart, without you
I'm lost and torn to pieces

I'm lost and torn to pieces
I'm lost and torn to pieces
I'm lost and torn to pieces

I wish I was strong enough, to take away your pain
I wish I would have listened, when you tried to explain
Now all I feel is empty, lost and broken inside
Couldn't find a way to move on, even though i tried

A shining light leading me back home, the only love I've ever known
Now you're gone
There's not a thing I wouldn't give, so I could see your face again
but you're gone,

I'm lost and torn to pieces

You wouldn't want to see me in this state
though I'm gonna miss you anyway
But for you...

You truly loved me I know this
Know you always will be missed
So for you

I'm picking up the pieces
I'm picking up the pieces
I'm picking up the pieces
I'm picking up the pieces
