Do you feel them taunting Idle threats in mind What was once apologies Now become a pack of lies Break free from this weight inside Listen to me, I won’t hide From now on I’ll stand my ground Listen to you, I’ve done my time Daunted by past mistakes Will you let it go What was once sympathy Now becomes offensiveness Break free from this weight inside Listen to me, I won’t hide From now on I’ll stand my ground Listen to you, I’ve done my time Break free from this weight inside Listen to me, I won’t hide From now on I’ll stand my ground Listen to you, I’ve done my time Break free from this weight inside Listen to me, I’ve no more time Will you let it go, I can’t take anymore Will you let it go, I can’t take anymore

This road to nowhere, is the path to our dreams We’ve struggled within, to find who we are Night after night, carved forever in stone We engrave our souls We must live today, and fight for today (oh oh) We will try again, always try again, (oh oh) Our lives pass before our eyes Working our days into the night Our lives pass before our eyes With the break of morning, we wash away all our dreams Punching the clock, we hunger to be free Day after day, carved forever in stone We engrave our souls We must live today, and fight for today (oh oh) We will try again, always try again, (oh oh) Our lives pass before our eyes Working our days into the night Our lives pass before our eyes We must live today, and fight for today (oh oh) We will try again, always try again, (oh oh) We must live today, and fight for today (oh oh) Our lives pass before our eyes Working our days into the night Our lives pass before our eyes

I thought about you for the first time in so many years How you were then, where are you now Back then it seemed like our love would last forever Summer felt so short, when we were young Do you ever think of me? I still think of you… Do you ever think of us? After all these years What went wrong, why did it end Looking back, I have to know What went wrong, why did it end I have to know, I have to know What went wrong, why did it end Looking back… I have to know… do feelings remain I remember when we used to talk for hours on end Always together, never apart How could I forget the heat from when our bodies touched The longing passion, it seemed like yesterday Do you ever think of me? I still think of you… Do you ever think of us? After all these years What went wrong, why did it end Looking back, I have to know What went wrong, why did it end I have to know, I have to know What went wrong, why did it end Looking back… I have to know… do feelings remain Do you ever think of me? I still think of you… Do you ever think of us? After all these years What went wrong, why did it end Looking back I have to know What went wrong, why did it end I have to know, I have to know What went wrong, why did it end Looking back… I have to know… do feelings remain

Listen to me know before the end is here A charismatic man will infect you with powers and beliefs Anesthetized with words, the message has been sent First you listen, then you follow - stand up for yourself Caught up in your dreams, wake up to the truth This so called man of god will entrust you To wash his hands and keep them clean Come and march with me, make our voices heard First you listen, then you follow - stand up for yourself Time, time to ask the question who holds the answers When the puzzle pieces just won’t fit Information, Delivery with deception Stand up and be counted, don’t be left behind Your heart tells you, it’s not what they say It’s who to follow and where to go Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies Listen to me, before it’s too late Listen to me now! Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies Time, time to ask the question who holds the answers When the puzzle pieces just won’t fit Come and march with me, make our voices heard First you listen, then you follow - stand up for yourself Your heart tells you, it’s not what they say It’s who to follow and where to go Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies Lies, covering other lies, Master of illusions They twist the truth, and spread their lies

What have I done, the things that I did The wicked, troubled influences Accepting changes, and understanding And what it takes to leave it be. Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul I am living proof That you never know with me I am living proof In my world of agony The different views we have, Are neither right or wrong To be together, we’ll stay strong Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul Two so unlike and different Can become the same in heart and soul I am living proof That you never know with me I am living proof In my world of agony

Long ago, living by the lake of salt Here in this desert city, a dream came to form Like knights on a crusade, we sought out to prove them wrong They said we would fall That no one would care And after all this time We out lived them all We are kings of the valley Standing strong against the times Mountains to the east and mountains to the west Surrounded by all those that refused to believe But we converted them, with words and a song They said we would fall That no one would care And after all this time We out lived them all We are kings of the valley Standing strong against the times We are kings of the valley Forging the blade of our lives They said we would fall That no one would care And after all this time We out lived them all We are kings of the valley Standing strong against the times We are kings of the valley Forging the blade of our lives

They have come for her This forlorn child Removed from the mother Enslaved by the drug A Desperate Father tries Fighting against the tide This father had no choice Stigmatized by society A quandary of our time Life or Law, what will it be? They have come for her This forlorn child Returned to the mother destroyed by the drug This father had no choice Stigmatized by society A quandary of our time Life or Law, what will it be? A despereate father cries Too late to save the child They have come for her This forlorn child Buried in the ground Returned to the gods This father had no choice Stigmatized by society A quandary of our time Life or Law, what will it be?

When you gaze up to the stars In the pale silence of the night How things change as you get old Wondering if your dreams take you home Can you hear them speaking your name Alone in the dark, reaching out from the past Tell who you are Can you hear them speaking your name Tomorrow, like days gone by Tell who you Away from friends and family Following the only road you see Did it take you as far as you thought Can you hear them speaking your name Alone in the dark, reaching out from the past Tell who you are Can you hear them speaking your name Tomorrow, like days gone by Tell who you Obsessive pride takes its toll Going down that lonely road Standing at the crossroads of your life Can you hear them speaking your name Alone in the dark, reaching out from the past Tell who you are Can you hear them speaking your name Tomorrow, like days gone by Tell who you Can you hear them speaking your name Alone in the dark, reaching out from the past Tell who you are Can you hear them speaking your name Tomorrow, like days gone by, Tell who you

I have watched from a distance Your reaction to this evolution No, you can't please everyone You feel that it should be done I'll do things my way, no matter what the cost My satisfaction outweighs this dissension No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies I won't change my words or ways Accept my terms or just walk away I'll do things my way, no matter what the cost My satisfaction outweighs this dissension I have read your words of wisdom And your critiques fail to realize... I'll do things my way, no matter what the cost My satisfaction outweighs this dissension No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies No loss, No heart is broken No time to face the fears or lies

Do you hear all the voices Are they chanting out as one Raise your fist into the air and shout! Can you feel all the power Is it pulsing in your veins Yell it together – Heavy metal’s in your blood, The blood in your veins Heavy metal’s in my blood, The blood in my veins The music is it in you Is it making your heart pound Raise your fist into the air and shout! Looking out at the faces See the fire in your eyes Rise up your horns Heavy metal’s in your blood, The blood in your veins Heavy metal’s in my blood, The blood in my veins We, we live to play for you We, we live to play for you Laying it down We, we live to play for you, We, we live to play for you, Laying it down You pay your money, and you stand in line Hoping that it’s worth it every time The lights go out, and the band his on the stage You feel the power, you feel the rage Pound the stage to the rhythm Bang your head and scream for more Raise your fist into the air and shout! Do you hear all the voices Are they chanting out as one Heavy metal’s in my blood, The blood in my veins Heavy metal’s in my blood, The blood in my veins We, we live to play for you, Laying it down We, we live to play for you You pay your money, and you stand in line Hoping that it’s worth it every time

All the leaders have fallen Screams death ring into the sky Dungeon steel keeps on calling Bloodstained walls and the keeper of death I rise among you; I hold the cold steel in my hands Insane leaders who live in fear of her Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess Her crimson eyes blaze like fire Her hair like knives drape to her thighs As she gazes in her crystal He anger builds and she blows her mind Black magic bitch, destroying everyone in her way She lives in blood, from the dead king she stole from them Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess Evil Princess coming for you Beware of her evil glances Headless children, killing, torture Burning corpses, evil princess
