Do you feel them taunting Idle threats in mind What was once apologies Now become a pack of lies Break free from the 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 the 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 the 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 the 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 out who we are Night after night, carved forever in stone We engrave our souls We must live today, and fight for today We will try again, always try again 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 We will try again, always try again 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 We will try again, always try again We must live today, and fight for today 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 That summer felt so short, when we were young Do you 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, where did we go What went wrong, I have to know 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 when our bodies touched The longing passion, it seemed like yesterday Do you 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, where did we go What went wrong, I have to know I have to know… do feelings remain Do you 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, where did we go What went wrong, I have to know 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 to prove them wrong They said that 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 on the west Surrounded by all those that refused to believe But we converted them, with words and a song They said that 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 songs of our lives They said that 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 sons of our lives We are Kings

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? 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, yes you feel that it should be done I'll do things my way, no matter what the cost My own 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 my 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 once again In your views, you fail to realize I'll do things my way, no matter what the cost My own 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

Chasing down this salary With nothing left to feed your soul Why can’t life be like a carefree ten year old Was it so innocent, so simple There was dirt on my hands and blood on your knees In the mirror, the reflection of that boy inside of me There’s a time, they’ll run away And tell us when they’ve been How hard can they be to find Better days have never left your sight All their lives will cascade From the beginning to the end Now it’s just a story of the solitary man Gaze in the mirror and what is your resolve One man, could anyone really ever know Is this our sweet serenity or insanity? And can you tell me why I am the enemy What thoughts prevail in your head at night That in a cold, cruel world for all that’s gone wrong All their lives will cascade For the beginning to the end Now it’s just a story of the solitary man Gaze in the mirror and what is your resolve One man, could anyone really ever know You never saw me coming; I will never see you go The past is gone, are my words such a waste A year is spent, but never ends All their lives will cascade From the beginning to the end All their lives will cascade For the solitary man

Can you see the full moon rising Do you see the sun turn black Can you see the messiah’s coming back Do you feel the need to surrender Do you feel the need to repent Do you feel the needles in your head Can’t you hear the whole world dying Can’t you hear their screams of regret Can’t you hear our freedom being spent Do you fear the new world coming Do they bear the mark or the seal Do you feel their vengeance drawing near Touch the thorns of hatred Feel the whips of Pain Taste the blood of the bitter shame Strike the nails of sorrow Cast the stones of rage Seal the end of the human race Sands of time… Sands of time… Sands of time Don’t let the past don’t let it weigh you down Sands of time Hurry up now before it’s too late
