Track Name: Dead Horses And Divorces
We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of
we got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of

Listen to the lies there's something in our minds
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky
listen to the lies there's something in our minds
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky

Now open up your eyes

Love and obey honour and uphold
never walk alone future be foretold
say unto me loyal to the one
blessed be the name thy will be done

We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck)

Listen to the fear there's something in our minds
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky
listen to the fear there's something in our minds
listen to the noise a shadow in the sky

Love and obey honour and uphold
never walk alone future be foretold
say unto me loyal to the one
blessed be the name thy will be done

We got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of
we got a lot of money we got a lot of grit we got a lot of pressure we got a lot of
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck)
we got a lot of money (to the dogs) we got a lot of grit (to the wreck) we got a lot of pressure (to the mould) we got a lot of (to the neck)
Track Name: Sanity Bell
Cold man you took my mind away
old man the things we need to say

The time bed arrives with a pocket watch and holes in the side
a brown paper bag with a message on beware the divide

The sanity bell chimes through the years turns the dark winter days to night
the heavenly pain across the sky falls the veil of the fading light

Cold man you took my mind away
old man the things we need to say

The cage it will pass on the waterline a breath in the glass
return it to me by the after glow then wait for the snow

The sanity bell chimes through the years turns the dark winter days to night
the heavenly pain across the sky falls the veil of the fading light

Cold man you took my love away
old man the things we need to say
Track Name: Big Bomb Bouncy Bang Bang
Wild man run for me wild man come
wild man speak to me wild man fly

A ship with another crew and a song for the other two
we sail to a better place with a gift for another race
we found what we're looking for in the foil of a closing door
we know what we want to do in a ship with another crew

Wild man run for me wild man come
wild man speak to me wild man fly

A ship with a better crew as we sail to another blue
a song for a better place not a soul not another face
the sound of a battle cry on the edge of a broken sky
we know what we want to do in a ship with another crew

Breath it in breath it out
fight the pain fight the doubt
load the bomb load the gun
to the people from the sun
end the madness end the joy
end the sorrow now deploy
to the man to the eye
from the heavens in the sky
To the shadow overhead
now the thunder seeing red
rock the boat mock the call
fool to greet to the wall
murky maze now belief
solemn silence no relief
sound the call now beware
empty heart empty stare
To the mass to the fight
from the Gods through the night
feel the fury feel the pain
for the most for the sane
time to heal time to mend
say goodbye weary friend
pull the plug do it now
take a leap take a bow
breath it in breath it out
time to run time to shout
burn a candle to the flame
show no mercy place the blame
first the light then a spark
end the day now the dark
end the sorrow end the joy
in the end we destroy
Track Name: As The Sky Falls Down
As the sky falls down
as the angels frown
as the cold wind blows
my eternal rose

I want you to know the way back home
find our place alone
through the broken land
a sanctuary of love a sanctuary of peace

As the sky falls down
on the ancient town
see the wise man cry
till the last goodbye

I want you to know the way back home
find our place alone
through the broken land
a sanctuary of love a sanctuary of peace
Track Name: The Sensitive Man
As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows
you will find him there sitting on his chair
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got tonight he will plot

A dark descent
the sleeping crow
a twisted knife
the horror show
a broken wing
a shattered bone
a soothing blade
on my own

The sensitive man cuts deep
he slices away at what is left of himself
poor sensitive man he cuts deep
and slices away at what is left of himself

As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows
you will find him there sitting on his chair
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got tonight he will plot

A soaring bird
the bleeding sky
an arrow's thorn
the golden eye
a looming gate
the fading hope
a rusty edge
the tangled rope

The sensitive man cuts deep
he slices away at what is left of himself
poor sensitive man he cuts deep
and slices away at what is left of himself

As the rain comes down and the cold wind blows
you will find him there sitting on his chair
all alone and filled with fear no fight has he got goodnight
Track Name: The Empty Space
The man wouldn't tell me what to do
he wouldn't tell me what he knew

His silent fear and the empty space
I long to leave this wretched place

But he wouldn't tell me what to do
because he never realised what I knew

I am but a drop in the ocean.
Track Name: Black Box
Cold long night cold dark night
cold long night cold dark night
and the air is gone

Cold long night cold dark night
cold long night cold dark night
and the pain is gone
Track Name: House On The Hill
Cold in the winter snow cold to the place below
far from the masked array far from another day
cold to the bitter end cold to a faithful friend
far from the open sea far from a home to be

House on the hill hide away
house on the hill run away
house on the hill hide away
house on the hill run away

House on the hill hide away
house on the hill run away
house on the hill hide away
house on the hill run away


Cold in the winter night cold to the burning light
far from a tender breeze far from the raging seas
cold to a bitter mind cold to a gentle kind
far from an empty space far from another place
Track Name: My Unloving God
A trumpet sounds the battle cry
to carry forth beyond the sky
the golden gates a solemn prize
a loving man his dark disguise

My eyes are blind I long to see I pray to you
now walk with me stand by my side I pray to you

My world is yours to take it with you
my life on hold I give it to you my unloving God

The fallen men of a nation proud
the joy of war a hanging cloud
a fight for life for evermore
an open wound a closing door

My boy he needs your guiding hand I pray to you
as through the night I hear your call I pray to you

My world is yours to take it with you
my life on hold I give it to you my unloving God

The lonely road a beaten track
another world upon my back
keep the faith until the end
I wonder why my silent friend
Track Name: His Master's Voice
Here I am sitting on the top of the world
I'm sitting on the edge of reality and waiting for this moment to heal
as I am sitting on the top of the world
I'm searching hard to find the reality I'm searching hard for something to say

Here I am floating round a heavenly place
I'm floating up above what is right and wrong hoping that this moment will stay
as I am riding on the crest of a wave
I'm riding through the realms of reality the search is ending now I can feel

Fighting every step of the way hurting at the break of the day
waiting for the moment to last knowing that the future has passed


Fighting every step of the way hurting at the break of the day
waiting for the moment to last knowing that the future has passed

I can hear you now the pain has gone
the boat's arrived my sacred choice his master's voice
I don't need you now the pain has gone
I give to you my sacred choice his master's voice

Take my hand walk with me and never let go
walk with me into my reality
Track Name: Dame Gothel (special edition)
In the clearing stands a maiden with golden hair,
looking through the pane
caged in a fortress, song unsung
lonely as a skylark, old and young

Gently, she unfolds her locks tumbling down
freely, on the ground
as they shine like starlight
burnished gold
will he see her, as they toll

There’s a prince who’s lost in love with his Queen
how he wants her so
as he climbs the turret, his pulse begins to race
longing to see her, on his face

Step by step, his hopes arise numbing pain
pulling on her mane
glad in his ascension, he springs into her arms
bony little fingers, he’s fallen for her charms.

In the wood had burned a heart in a sordid frame, barren and alone
when she saw him climbing, she stormed along the path
casting her enchantment, the trees recoiled her wrath

Oh she loved the child she cared with good intent
cruelty well meant
snipping with her scissors, the steel reflects her eyes
scheming with vengeance, he doesn’t seem surprised…
