DEAD WINTER SUN

Free us from the dead of winter
Where the darkness consumes us
Hear our call

Silence has fallen upon us again
Bleeding for our mistakes in life
There is no one to wake us from our weary minds
Never again will we see the light
Waiting for a sign from above

Hear our call

How can we change tomorrow
When we live in chaos today?
Fighting the hold you have on me

Dreaming in black and white
I’m screaming in silence
Holding onto the hope
That you have taken away

How can we live tomorrow
When we’re dead inside today?
Masking the pain we carry inside
Searching within myself
My weaknesses show through
God, lift this burden that crushes me

Daylight calling- night has fallen
Lying under another dead winter sun
Emotions faded, Inhibitions jaded
Dawn is rising now, bringing new life

A new dawn is here again
Winter has faded, tragedy has come to an end
Until we die again one more year

A new dawn is here again
Tragedy has come to an end

How can we change tomorrow
When we live in chaos today?
Fighting the hold you have on me
How can we live tomorrow
When we’re dead inside today?
Masking the pain that we carry inside


WHEN HOPE DIES

Desensitized to the cries
There was a time when I could feel emotion
Media lies paralyze
Bring me absolution or let me drown in vain
Fragmented lives, weary minds
Now I know I am still alive

The media has raped me of my sanity
Invading another once innocent mind
Instilling fear so deep inside of me
In a room without a view- six feet underground

Arrows lie deep inside
Rip the faith from my heart- so torn apart
Innocence left behind
But we need the truth, open the eyes to our youth
Purge my mind, leave me blind
I cannot watch as the world falls
My only memory beyond these four walls

Is there hope for the future of man?
Mother Earth weeps for her land
And I fear everything but believe in nothing
Tempting lies, forsaken cries
Break me free from my own demise
And all will be for nothing…
When hope dies

Scared from the sorrows I have seen
Burned into my memory

Backing so far away
From the window to the world of disarray
Dying once again today
The world is not our own but all we’ve known
Instilling fear deep inside
Purge me of what I refuse to be
Is there anything left for me to believe?


LAST GOODBYE

I still dream of you
I can still hear you whisper when I am alone
Somehow I know you’re always there… with me
Some day I will see you again
And look you in the eye (another day)

If I could see your face one more time
There is nothing I wouldn’t do or leave behind
If I could hear your voice again
There’s so much I still need to say

How many times do I have to say goodbye?
So much left undone, so much left behind
How many times do I have to cry?
And if I would have known
That mourning would never come again

Please speak to me when I’m all alone
Why do we do we look to another day
For dreams to come true?
Why do we let today pass us by again?

The sun will rise tomorrow
Mourning will fade
The day will come where we will meet again…

Until then, this is our last goodbye

Did I make you proud of me?
Am I everything you hoped I would be?
Somehow I think I know the answer
I’ll see you when I sleep


CAST THE LAST STONE

New lessons learned in a season of disbelief
Such a travesty
Another sheep in wolves’ clothing
Sent to deceive

New lessons learned in a season of disbelief
Bound to a fate destined at an early age
Release me from the hate that has been burning inside
Take me far away from where you will cast the last stone

Re-write the rules take away all our hope
With our hands bound you cast the last stone

In a forest of fallen trees we wander
Feeding the masses what we must believe… redone
You can’t begin to see what this has done to me
All that remains are memories of what used to be

Re-write the rules take away all our hope
With our hands bound you cast the last stone
We numb the pain as we fade from the light
Surrendering we fall with no will to fight

Return to zero, bleed the hero… why?
Stand and watch as they cast the first stone
Who will win when everything is nothing?
Stand alone and cast the second stone
Judgment day has come and gone, now who will win
Stand and watch as they cast the third stone
When all is lost will fade into oblivion… again
Stand alone watch them cast the last stone

New lessons learned- another season of disbelief
How can we live in a forest of fallen trees?
Deceived?

New lessons learned in a season of disbelief
Bound to a fate destined at an early age
Release me from the hate that has been burning inside
Take me far away from where you will cast the last stone

Cast the last stone
Cast the last stone


SPEED OF DARK

(instrumental)


SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Life from a still frame unfolding
All the truth and the lies
Threading the needle, weaving our web
Shut the window to the world

You’re just a pawn on the chess board of life
Another world gone by
Your fate lies inside your soul
But you can make the change

Autumn sky falling inside these walls
Shroud me from myself
We cry for the sun to fall on this winter
Now we slumber in silence

Know your enemy- He who cries is still human
On this bleak April morning
Know your enemy- He who bleeds is still alive
Desert sand turned to lush
Know your enemy- He who cries is still human
Can we start the war over?
Spiritual warfare

Have you nothing to cry for?
Will you win at the eleventh hour?

“Why do you fight for me?
Why would you die for me?
I am not worthy of your sacrifice”

(In this time of judgment)
(Why have you come to claim my crown?)
(To save the helpless and all that are lost)

Have you nothing to cry for?
Will you win in the eleventh hour?
Have you no one to live for?
Will you win when your time has come?
Spiritual warfare

Know your enemy- On this bleak April morning
Know your enemy- Desert sand turned to lush
Know your enemy- Can we start the war over?
Spiritual warfare


HOLLOW SOUL

Save me from a world of hopeless existence
Consumed by apathy and pain
I tried to free myself
From a world I no longer know

Ante up, time to cash out
No more luck, another blackout
Address unknown, addicted so alone
Save me from myself
The future ends today

Will this be the death of me?
Wasting away in misery
In my self-induced insanity
I cannot bear this one more day

Holding onto what is slipping away
With all my will hear me today
I cannot suffer anymore… Make me whole again

Release me from my prison that I did create
My hollow soul was filled today
And I won’t suffer anymore
Now I am whole again


ECHOES OF THE LOST

Take me into a another daydream
In a world away from reality
Haunted by the tears of mankind
Echoes of the lost cloud my mind

Let the weight fuel your strength
For what lies inside

Under stormy skies
Alone and naked in the rain
Under an emerald sun
We watch our fate will unfold today

A world of despair, when hope is now gone
Let the sky burn a blue infinity
For all the echoes of the lost souls
The dawning of a new serenity

Is this all they have left?
Prisoners of mediocrity

In darkness we carry the light
We guide the way for the blind to see again
Let the weight fuel your strength
Beyond your conquered past…
Let your will carry you forth
Beyond the illusion of your own control

The tears are washed away


IN A COLD WORLD

Hear me in your silence
Haunting your conscience
Clinging onto life
As you push and twist the knife

Exploit me for your own gain
As you inflict more pain
Let’s end this misery
Before we become a memory

You turn the other way
So you cannot hear me scream
All alone to die with no one by my side
You leave me…

All alone inside, clinging onto life
Nothing more in sight, fading from the light
All alone inside, clinging onto life
Nothing more in sight, fading from the light

Naked in a cold world

Turn the tables- Imitate me now
Still I bleed the wounds inflicted upon me

We fight for the day
When we will no longer be enslaved
No one gave you absolute control

I feel the same pain as you
I have a soul and a heart that bleeds red
But still you leave me all alone
Naked in a cold world

So cold…
If you would struggle to gasp for breath
I would be there to help you try to survive
Once we believed one day we would be free
We’re holding onto our hope, but still we can dream

So cold…
Why would you put the truth behind you
Than admit to what you refuse to see
We still believe one day we will be free


TEARS

I watched the sunset for the last time today
As you grow, your memories of me will begin to fade
And I have become such a part of you
Remember this today
And I hope you can hear what I’m trying to say

Do you remember a time when the wars were silenced?
Do you remember when tears turned to laughter once and for all?
I have come to you today

Now I live in a place where hope will never fade
Where only tears of serenity remain
And I watched you pray every night for the sorrow to fade
And I heard you call for me to return again

Do you remember when we walked on elevated ground?
Do you remember watching the world from miles away?

There is nothing that can describe what I see before my eyes
So I say unto you…
Finish what you still have left to do
Until then, I will be waiting for you…
“You”?
