You take it for all granted Believe what you’ve been told Soon you’ll be left behind Because you never listened to your heart You feel the fire burning inside But you’ve followed the blind Taking advice from fools Wasted on fleeting dreams You think you know the answers Don’t we all? Experience paves the path for…. Liberated minds The key to our freedom Liberated minds We make our own future Struggling to stay ahead But the years have left you behind You feel the fire burning inside But you’ve followed the blind Taking advice from fools Wasted on fleeting dreams You think you know the answers Don’t we all? Ignorance kills our hopes for… Liberated minds The key to our freedom Liberated minds We make our own future You feel the fire burning inside But you’ve followed the blind Taking advice from fools Wasted on fleeting dreams

Like staring into the sun You’re blinded by arrogance Steadfast in your opinion You crush those who disagree and contest There is no way to get through And no way to win You say I’m wrong even though I’m right There is no way to get through And no where to go But I can’t give up and be defeated Only the strong survive, and you can’t deny You are an elitist Only the strong survive, and you won’t deny….. Like staring into the sun You’re blinded by ignorance Your intellect reigns supreme And all those around you are inferior There is no way to get through And no way to win You say I’m wrong even though I’m right There is no way to get through And no where to go But I can’t give up and be defeated Only the strong survive, and you can’t deny You are an elitist Only the strong survive, and you won’t deny You are an elitist Only the strong survive, and I won’t deny You are an elitist I will not falter, I will not bend I will not tremble, I will not break I am strong just like you I will not falter, I will not fail I…. Like staring into the sun You’re blinded by arrogance Like Staring into the sun You’re blinded by ignorance As you stare into the sun You’ve been blinded Blinded!

As years go by, will you still be there When things change, will you falter? Blindsided by the ignorance Still searching for something new Ever growing Always moving Caught between two worlds Looking for a change Always moving Will it be the same? The first note, wasn’t the last you heard The sounds carried you, day to day We are still the same as before But time has changed us once more Ever growing Always moving Caught between worlds Looking for change Always moving Will it be the same? Will you remember how it all began? (remember…) Can you see the change doesn’t matter at all? (remember…) Will you remember why it all began? (remember…) Or will you forget and turn away Remember? Don’t turn your back, give it a chance Open your mind to what we’ve made Our roots are firmly planted To give us room so we may grow Will you remember how it all began? (remember…) Can you see the change doesn’t matter at all? (remember…) Will you remember why it all began? (remember…) Or will you forget and turn away Remember? (remember….) (remember….)

Take a look at yourself Is it different than yesterday Feel the walls, Feel the walls Breaking down inside you The quick flash of hatred Burns and spreads like wildfire See the red, See the red Building up inside you Into the fire feeding the flame Into the darkness feeling no pain Wrenching and reeling, confusion sets in The fury unleashed will be tenfold Pushing and pulling, tormented inside The rising anger takes full form The fuse has been lit And is moving down the wire Feel the heat, feel the heat Burning up inside you Into the fire feeding the flame Into the darkness feeing no pain Wrenching and reeling, confusion sets in The fury unleashed will be tenfold Pushing and pulling, tormented inside The rising anger takes full form

Depleted of my will, drained of my soul I have struggled to win, but feel I must let go The energy pulled from my body This affection worn and frayed Why can’t I climb out? Clutching at what remains Why can’t I resist When you bleed me through Lost in this painful memory Wishing that I could die Lost in this painful memory Wishing you would fade away Stripped of my life, robbed of my dreams I have struggled to win, but feel I must let go Mortal succubus, leave me be! Lost in this painful memory Wishing that I could die Lost in this painful memory Wishing you would fade away Lost in this painful memory Wishing that I could die Lost in this painful memory Wishing you would fade away

In these trouble times in life and love, people often find Their joy and happiness Are all a state of mind The path that lies ahead of you And the will to Change it's course That choice is yours Could you feel the time running short Your candle burning low in your mind. nowhere to go You still saw them coming Could not stop them in your place Through the smoke, shadow and haze Wanting to leave us behind Where there is life. there is an end When it is time Will you pass through my friend In the madness that is your world Rage will find your heart And your mind is a blur Your time has come, your end is near All your crazy dreams are coming true So don't you fear Could you feel the time running short The candle burning low In your mind, nowhere to go You still saw them coming Could not stop them in their place Through the smoke, shadow and haze Wanting to leave us behind Where there is life, there is an end When it is time Will you pass through my friend

Brave the Darkness Eyes are closed to Reality Fading In, fading out Letting my mind go Moving Closer, Closer to you Breathing deep, yet silent I drift away Holding you in my thoughts You slip away Breathing deep, yet silent I drift away In this secret world A sweet emotion washes over me I’m here with you And you’re here with me Still holding, holding on to the past Deep in my thoughts, You will never leave Tonight while I sleep Will I find you on the other side? To the clouds above in my dreams I ascend alone Where do all my answers lie? Breathing deep, yet silent I drift away Holding you in my thoughts You slip away Breathing deep, yet silent I drift away

We are taking control Free ourselves from your reign We will fight to the last breath Our choice has been made Your greed will be your demise Corporate whores, it’s time to bleed No more soul stealing We chose our own path now No time left for you Our hostile takeover Turn the tables on you Won’t take it anymore Our time has come A hostile takeover Breaking down the walls in our mind Pushing out the noise in our head We will choose what’s right for ourselves Your empire crumbles by our hand You have no more control A new era has come Your creation has turned against you You forsake us, now we rule No longer a pawn in your game The conspiracy ends here Turn the tables on you Won’t take it anymore Our time has come A hostile takeover Breaking down the walls in our mind Pushing out the noise in our head We will choose what’s right for ourselves Your empire crumbles by our hand No longer a pawn in your game The conspiracy ends here

We have held strong to our beliefs Perform our parts from the heart out on our sleeves We sometimes feel that it’s near the end But somehow make it through another day We ask ourselves, is it worth it all The sacrifice to the ones we love When we first meet we had a dream To make a difference and succeed The road chosen is less traveled And the risk at hand is far too great But somehow we keep the flame burning bright Even in the darkest of our days A Time to fight (We must fight!) To Survive A game you can’t win, you know there’s no end We are marching on! A Time to fight (We must fight!) We will live on Where do go, and still they never know How long will it last? This dream of ours as seen through the glass How far will it go? This song of ours or one more show We ask ourselves, is it worth it all The sacrifice to the ones we love When we first meet we had a dream To make a difference and succeed At the end of it, when the day is done With a smile as we gave it all Well it’s what we know, it’s in our blood and soul Waking everyday wanting more A Time to fight (We must fight!) To Survive A game you can’t win, you know there’s no end We are marching on! A Time to fight (We must fight!) We will live on Where do go, and still they never know We must fight... to survive We must fight… to carry on We must fight!
