Track Name: Listen to You, Listen to Me
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
Track Name: Workforce
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
Track Name: Do Feelings Remain
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
Track Name: Lies and Illusion
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
Track Name: Apologetic Heart
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
Track Name: Kings of the Valley
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
Track Name: Forlorn Child
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?
Track Name: Can You Hear Them
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
Track Name: No Matter What
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
Track Name: Enemy (U.S. Bonus Track)
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
Track Name: Sands of Time (2007 Version - U.S. Bonus Track )
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
