Track Name: 1 x One
The Ants go marching one by one
Into the earth to escape from the sun
The water falls, the rivers run
They all wash away, one by one

You see the Mirror just standing there watching you
The man inside he says walk away
Its not his time and its not his place
He's just another unfamiliar face... walk away

Everyday back where they begun
No bodies laughing there is no fun

You see the Mirror just standing there watching you
The man inside he says walk away
Its not his time and its not his place
He's just another unfamiliar face... walk away

Everyday back where they begun
No bodies laughing there is no fun
The water falls, the rivers run
They all wash away...one by one

You see the man he's sitting there laugh at you
feel the pain just wash away
Its not his time and its not his place
He's just another unfamiliar face... walk away

could you walk away
could you walk all day............

walk away now
I don't care how
your not chained down
your not laying down.. run away

Take the time to
wash away a little piece of your lie
leave the pain and walk away
I know the game you play
I know the game you play

walk away
walk away
walk away
walk away....
Track Name: Twisted
My Dearest Darling
In me what do you see
Is your arm twisted backwards
Have I blinded thee

If I said I was a Liar
In me would you believe
If I said for you I would die
Would you lead me to bleed

Take me to the river
and lead me to drown
Drain me of my life blood darling
Until the waters run brown
Until the waters run brown
Reddy brown
Reddy brown

I have suffered mans desires
I have tasted destain
I have burned as a fire my love
I am twisted in pain

Take me to the river
and lead me to drown
Drain me of my life blood darling
Till the waters run brown
Until the waters run brown
Reddy brown
Reddy brown

The words from your mouth
In this sickness or this health
If death do us part my dear
Would you care to die

Take me to the river
and lead me to drown
Drain me of my life blood darling
Until the waters run brown
Until they run run brown
Reddy brown
Reddy brown
Reddy brown..........

I have suffered mans desires
I have tasted destain
I have raged as a fire
I am twisted in pain

Twisted by the fire fly.....
Track Name: Shallow Cure
Old man bent and stayed
wonder why riddled with hate
all friends frayed and stained
they've all fled far away

Mirror cracked with site of face
How can empty life replace
Your steps if only could retrace

Happier would have been your fate
There was a time you had a chance
Now its too late

Lies so insipid now
Foolish is self worth and thought
How your viewed disbelieved
All of the course self brought

Old man trying to be another
Shoe fits an-others foot
Never even to pass as a brother
This your pretense empties the soul it took

Happier could have been your fate
If only another chance
Now its too late

Old man, old man, denial is a shallow cure
You learn to embrace
the loyalties once held dear...
disappear... without a.. lonely glance or trace
Old man, Old man in denial...

Happier could have been your fate
If only another chance
Now its too late

Old man, old man, denial is a shallow cure
You learn to embrace
the loyalties once held pure...
disappear... without a.. lonely glance of trace
Old man, Old man in denial...

Bow your shoulders
Bend with the weight self taught
Bend low
Bear the burden self wrought
Bow your head
Bow down low
Hold no ones gaze, no one knows
Bow your head
Bow down low
This is your endless fate till the end of days

Old man, old man, denial is a shallow cure
You learn to embrace
the loyalties once held pure...
disappear... without a.. lonely glance of trace
Old man, Old man in denial...
Track Name: Wicked World
Life couldn't hold you any higher
Your out of reach

Maybe I should try a little harder
But I'm so hard to please

Its such a wicked world
You've nothing left to hurl
So take a well earned rest
Your up there with the best

The body is weak but the mind is strong
But all we can do, is keep on moving on

To keep the ones we love close to find
The pain of memories left in song

Its such a wicked world
You've nothing left to hurl
So take a well earned rest
Your up there with the best

To keep the ones we love close to find
The pain of memories left in song

Its such a wicked world
You've nothing left to hurl
I wonder what its all cost
To find the ones you've lost
Track Name: Hand of Power
Hold your head held high
Clench you fist and let it fly
No one feels the pain
But those your break again and again and again

Hand of Power
Heart of Greed
Head to Roll
Your heart to Bleed Yay yea

You take a life
and that aint right
You take the man and then
Take his wife

Feed the rich
Bury the poor
The hand that rules
is the hand that kills

Hand of Power
Heart of Greed
Head to Roll
Your heart to Bleed....

Through the years nothing changes
The hand that rules is the hand that kills

Ooooooh oooh ooooooo
The Hand of Power

He who sits upon the throne
Teach your son to be the evil one

Hand of Power
Heart of Greed
Head to Roll
Your heart to Bleed....
Track Name: Belief
Death wields a burning picture of me
Bloody eyes I see you looking at me
Such a foreign weakness find in me
Is this my time, maybe I should believe

Its not my Belief.. yet

The hands of time clutching desperately
The wheels of life bearing down upon me
A vision of what should never be
Is this my time, maybe I should believe

Its not my Belief.. yet
Its not my Belief.. yet yet no

Could you clarify something that's bothering me
Or are the words of truth so lost in prophecy
Have you set aside a special place for me
If you were mightier you'd make this my belief

Its not my Belief.. yet
Its not my Belief..

When he comes will I be choking with fear
Soffercation will swallow my prayer
Leaving me naked to his burning stare
If this is my time maybe I should believe
Track Name: Why
Tears roll down my cheek again
I cant remember the last time
that my eyes leaked.

Leaked...

I'm on my own again
I'm on my own again
Sleeping alone again
sleeping alone again...

Sleeping alone...

How did you make it so easy
how did you make it so easy
when you know
I like it hard

I like it hard
I like hard

Its not meant to be easy
If it was meant to be easy
Why is it better hard..

It's only worthwhile if its hard
It's only worthwhile if its hard
It's only worthwhile if its hard...

Why dya die so easy
Why dya die so easy
Why dya die so easy when you know
I like it
I like it hard

And you always
take the... easy
way out
and you... always
take the... easy
way out..
again..
and again
and again
and again

Taking the easy way out again
your taking the easy way out again

Track Name: Four Walls
Its ten thirty Am
Awakened again
I cant find a single reason
to leave this bed

The child is screaming
Cat wail fills my head
and then recall these four walls
My heart cold fills with dread

It cant be long now
ooh no it wont be long now
till it gets
till it gets
its getting started

And I'm bouncing off the walls
the ceiling and the floor
Can you, leave me some air
cos theres not much down here
and if its all the same
can you shoot me again
and leave me bouncing

I'm bouncing off the walls.....

Black coffee
then yoga
With the Sea at my feet
I'm fighting this feeling
But my heart starts to beat
Grey is now, falling down
to my feet
I'm screaming let me out

Cos I'm bouncing of the walls
the ceiling and the floor
Can you, leave me some air
cos theres not much down here
and if its all the same
can you shoot me again
and leave me bouncing

I'm bouncing off the walls.....

Coming down again
Coming down again
Coming down again
Coming down again
Fuck this coming down
its always grey and brown
with ya head stuck in the ground
Kick me while I'm down
Fuck this coming down
Fuck this coming down

Blue Sky awakens
The sea is warm and green
but my minds lost reason
I'm burning on the cross
Screaming with a shout
Will ya let me out
Can ya let me out
Just let me out

Cos I'm bouncing of the walls
the ceiling and the floor
Can you, leave me some air
cos theres not much down here
and if its all the same
can you shoot me again
and leave me bouncing

I'm bouncing off the walls.....

Coming down again
Coming down again
Coming down again
Coming down again
Fuck this coming down
its always grey and brown
with ya head stuck in the ground
Kick me while I'm down
Fuck this coming down
Fuck this coming down


Bouncing off the walls
Bouncing off the walls

Track Name: Toxic
Anarchy lies within
A plague out of control
This poison growing stronger
A curse without a soul

Here I lie in duress
A captive to its command
Chaos runs through my thoughts
I do as it demands

Heed to the Voices
Hearing them pray
Do as they bid me
Obey what they say

Its bark seeps toxic
An abstract my mind has become
A destroyer it wants to be
Abdicate and join as one

Time to take control now
Be free of what I am not
Take a bullet to my head
And Pray...That God... forgot

Heed to the Voices
Hearing them pray
Do as they bid me
Obey what they say

I'm being held prisoner in my own mind
I'm being held prisoner in my own mind
Rpt.
Track Name: P-Fried
Desperate to please
Pained to succeed
side ways push
try to muscle in

Those you'd lead
from you flee
respect you seek
but have not earned

Father crushed spring
now let fly
frustrated by limitations
into all obstacles...

Collide...
Collide
Collide
Collide

Where is your family
In tribe who cares
your not seen
due too..

New Zealand Green
New Zealand Green

Who wants to be lead
by a man living in dread
hiding himself
with two knives and a flame

respected, feared, trusted
or growing to loath
the juries still out
but will soon decide

If you just...

Too P Fried
Collide
Too P Fried
Collide
Collide

Those you'd lead
from you flee
respect you seek
but have not earned.........

Those you'd lead
from you flee
respect you seek
but have not earned

Those you'd lead
from you flee.

Desperate to please
Pained to succeed
side ways push
try to muscle in

Your just too... Your just too
P Fried

Your just too
P Fried
Track Name: Don't Bring the Sun
Darkness lies all around
Broken only by the moons veiled claw
Silver shafts abound
Piercing window crack and door

Restless slumber
the Owls alarm
call to wake
Eyes break open
Oh God, for heavens sake...

Don't .. Don't bring the Sun
Don't let the Sun rise
Please don't come...because
Tomorrow.. they'll burn the Witches
Watch the Witches burn, watch them burn

Build the fire
They build the pier
They build the truth
Light the fire

Children gather round
fan the flames
watch them burn it too the ground

Children gather round
fan the flames
watch them burn it too the ground

Don't bring the Sun
Don't let the Sun rise
Please don't come...because
Tomorrow.. they'll burn the Witches
Watch the Witches burn, watch them burn

Watch the Witches burn, watch them burn
Watch them burn....

Children gather round
Watch the Witches burn...
Track Name: What they didn't tell you
Wife's steeling while I'm needing
Don't get cold now it's freezing
You don't have to go now
You could wait a little longer

Let's go for it one last time

While she's cheating I'm needing
take the lead I need healing
I want you to stay now
I want it to be so special

I want to feel for the last time

What they didn't tell you
About the birds and the bee's
You don't have to be in love to have sex
And they forgot to tell you we all have needs
You don't have to be in love to have sex
No you don't have to be in love

Please tell me that we're all good
Please tell me I'm still in love
But all she wants is a good fuck
Please tell me that we're all good
Please tell me we are

But all she wants is a different fuck

What they didn't tell you
About the birds and the bee's
You don't have to be in love to have sex
And they forgot to tell you we all have needs
You don't have to be in love to have sex
No you don't have to be in love

All she wants is a good fuck

And What they didn't tell you
About the birds and the bee's
You don't have to be in love to have sex
And they forgot to tell you we all have needs
You don't have to be in love to have sex
No you don't have to be in love
