Track Name: Dogs Of War
As darkness fills the sky
We all prepare to die
As death and pain is falling all around
Knee deep in the mud
You wonder if you should
Pray to God to save you from this hell


When does the hero come to save me?
When does the cavalry arrive?
I think they’re on my trail


Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war


You hear the whistle blow
A few more steps to go
And you’ll be past the point of no return
Running to your death
You savour every breathe
Knowing that each one could be your last


When does the hero come to save me?
When does the cavalry arrive?
I think they’re on my trail


Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war






Your luck has just run out
The marksman in no doubt
His bullet ripping through your flesh and bone
You’re staring at the sky
Waiting there to die
A tribute to the foolishness of man


When does the hero come to save me?
When does the cavalry arrive?
I think they’re on my trail


Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Hear ‘em coming the dogs of war
Track Name: I Cant Breathe
A few more days to go till they put me in the ground
And I can’t stand still, no I can’t stand still
Staring open mouthed as I scream without a sound
But I can’t stand still, no I can’t stand still

I can hear the canons pounding
In the land of spice and oil
Can you feel the pressure now……

I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe , I can’t breathe
Won’t you
Let me leave, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe

Sitting in my chair and I’m rolling down the tracks
And I can’t stand still, no I can’t stand still
My mind is on the journey but I’m never coming back
And I can’t stand still, no I can’t stand still

I can hear the canons pounding
In the land of spice and oil
Can you feel the pressure now……

I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe , I can’t breathe
Won’t you
Let me leave, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe

I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe , I can’t breathe
Won’t you
Let me leave, I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe
Track Name: Fireflies
Where are the millions who walked upon the Earth
The fathers the lovers and the sons
Sucked into the void
Wrapped up in the Earth
They lie asleep dreaming of no one


Just like fireflies - Lighting up the skies
Just like fireflies - We live and then we die
Just like fireflies - Wings burn in the sun
Just like fireflies - Here and then we’re gone
Here and then we’re gone
Flying to the sun


Look into the void their faces revealed
All the hate all the love all the fears
Drawn towards the light
They walked in to the sun
But the light goes out
And darkness fills the sky


Just like fireflies - Lighting up the skies
Just like fireflies - We live and then we die
Just like fireflies - Wings burn in the sun
Just like fireflies - Here and then we’re gone
Here and then we’re gone
Flying to the sun


We burn in the sun
We’re here then we’re gone
We’re wrapped in the Earth
We dream of no one







Fathers and lovers
Their hates and their fears
Mothers and sons
Counting their tears


Just like fireflies - Lighting up the skies
Just like fireflies - We live and then we die
Just like fireflies - Wings burn in the sun
Just like fireflies - Here and then we’re gone
Here and then we’re gone
Flying to the sun
Track Name: The Eye
Mighty men stand up and shout
They tell us what to think and do
That doesn’t make it right
You know that doesn’t make it true


Careful not to bite the hand that feeds
Whispers heard who knows where it will lead


You can change the way you look
But can’t change what’s deep inside
No matter how much time it took
The eye will always find


Keeping track of every move
Computers racking up the score
You can’t hide from prying eyes
No matter how long and hard you try


Careful not to bite the hand that feeds
Whispers heard who knows where it will lead


You can change the way you look
But can’t change what’s deep inside
No matter how much time it took
The eye will always find


The eye will always find
The eye will always find
The eye will always find
Will always
Will always
Will always find
Track Name: Lock N Load
Lock n’ load
Politicians locked and loaded
Combat missiles
Guided with no aim
Freedom forces here to save you
Salute the flag or
There will be no gain


Sign on the dotted line your life will be complete
We will even cheer you when you’re falling in the street
You can fight for freedom there is so much you can give
We’ll keep the dollars coming but we don’t know where you live


We’re moving out
Lock and load
We’re moving out
So lock and load


Hypocrites that breed corruption
On the streets and
In the senate halls
Light the fires while Rome is burning
Hear the cries and
See the empire fall


One thousand years of history waits for your command
Tyrant after tyrant dripping blood from open hand
Take the call to arms and keep on marching to the beat
And we will even cheer you when you’re crawling in the street


Lock and load
Lock and load



We’re moving out
Lock and load
We’re moving out
So lock and load

We look straight to the East
To keep us on this
Gravy train
Treading blood into the sand
But you will never
Wash away the stain


Sign on the dotted line your life will be complete
We will even cheer you when you’re dying in the street
You can fight for freedom there is so much you can give
We’ll keep the dollars coming but we don’t know where you live


Lock and load
Lock and load


We’re moving out so lock and load
Track Name: Bedlam
And as the cold grey light
Floods through my soul
And the shadows from my mind cut right through
From whisper to moan to blood chilling scream
The rantings of madmen and lunatic fiends
The same thing the same thing over again
Welcome to breakfast in hell

The damp of these stone cold walls
Chills me to the bone
And these hard steel buckles cut my skin
Why am I here, why can’t I go, why have they locked me away
They said I was evil, they said it was wrong, but I think that they’ve all gone insane

Why don’t they believe me
And the voices I hear
There are deeds to be done
Got to get out of here

My Mission is crucial
I have got to escape
To achieve my destiny
Bedlam will have to wait

Sirens are sounding
My chance is at hand
Fire and smoke touch the sky
The death of a guard is a small price to pay
To give me what’s rightfully mine

Break through the window and run to the trees
Guard dogs hot on my trail
The blood and the smoke still fresh on my lips
This time I know I won’t fail

Bedlam – You can’t stop me know
Bedlam – You’ll never find out how
Bedlam – Hiding my face from the sun
Bedlam – My mission and killing are one
Track Name: Demon In The Room
The demon sits in his room
Watching the digital world
Images passing through
To the spaces in between

Data is pushed down the wire
As it fuels his twisted mind
And others who hide in the shadows
Are drawn to the evil that binds

They won’t be what we want them to be
They can’t see what we want them to see
They won’t walk from the dark to the sun
And the endless pain of victims left undone

Soon the sirens are heard
A newspaper hiding his face
You think the threat is long gone now
Till somebody takes his place

Hunting the souls and the young
The damage just grows and grows
The scars will last for a lifetime
Passed on by a father who knows

They won’t be what we want them to be
They can’t see what we want them to see
They won’t walk from the dark to the sun
And the endless pain of victims left undone

They won’t be what we want them to be
They can’t see what we want them to see
They won’t walk from the dark to the sun
And the endless pain of victims left undone
Track Name: I Am
Just a ball of confusion
Your head spinning round
Frustration and despair
Are dragging you down
Now your ready to blow
So much pain inside
But you can’t give in
Got to give it one more try


I am
What I am
What I am
Ain’t no disgrace
I am
What I am
What I am
Is what you made me


Take the time to see
Take a look around
At what you’ve got
Not what you have not
And sometimes you feel
Like there’s no way out
And you’re fighting so hard
Just to hold your ground


I am
What I am
What I am
Ain’t no disgrace
I am
What I am
What I am
Is what you made me




I am
What I am
What I am
I am
What I am
What I am


I am
What I am
What I am
Ain’t no disgrace
I am
What I am
What I am
Is what you made me
Track Name: Forever
No questions
No reasons
Too scared to run
Nowhere to hide
Don’t move they’ll shoot you dead
And lay you to your final rest


No matter what we do
Or how many times we see the truth


There is no end
To all the fear and pain
It just goes on forever
There is no end
To this power game
It just goes on forever


No questions
No answers
Do as your told
Do as I do
Don’t try to think again
They’ll confiscate your mind


No matter what we do
Or how many times we see the truth


There is no end
To all the fear and pain
It just goes on forever
There is no end
To this power game
It just goes on forever
Track Name: Take Me Home
Been in the wilderness alone for far too long
The memories fade of times gone by ‘til I have none
Want to remember all the pieces of my past
I want to feel I’m in control and free at last


I need to feel like there’s a place where I belong
I need to feel there’s a place I can be strong


Take me home – Now I know it won’t be easy
Take me home – Been away for oh so long
Take me home – I feel a change now I’m returning


Can be so easy thinking life is safe and warm
Until you realise your standing on your own
You want to keep it going don’t want things to change
But you’re about to learn that life don’t work that way


I need to feel like there’s a place where I belong
I need to feel there’s a place I can be strong


Take me home – Now I know it won’t be easy
Take me home – Been away for oh so long
Take me home – I feel a change now I’m returning


I need to feel like there’s a place where I belong
I need to feel there’s a place I can be strong


Take me home – Now I know it won’t be easy
Take me home – Been away for oh so long
Take me home – I feel a change now I’m returning
Track Name: No Mans Land
Out in the green fields
At the start of the day
I see you walk out
In the cold and misty haze
Well you take the gun
And you plant the seed
And now the dream is real
We do just as we please

We’ve taken the blood
From the others
Only we can decide
My brother

Remember this day
With our life in decay
Was there ever a plan
We’re heading to no mans land

Now you better pray
We can find our way
Do you think that we can
We’re heading to no mans land

We’ll live or we’ll die
But we’ll never run
Side by side
We’ll choose what must be done
We’ll head to the highway
Eating up the miles
Is this a one way trip
That leads to suicide?

We’ve taken the blood
From the others
Only we can decide
My brother

Remember this day
With our life in decay
Was there ever a plan
We’re heading to no mans land
Track Name: Sheralee - bonus track
Looking for a woman, looking for you
I’ve got my suspicions about the things you do
You tell me you’re not like that
You tell me you’ve been miss-understood
But in that sweet little mind of yours
You know you can’t make it so good

I know where I want to be
Sheralee
Drowning in your fantasy
Sheralee
I just want to hold you tight
Make it right thro the night
Won’t you give your love to me
Sheralee
Hold your body close to mine
Sheralee
We’re both running out of time
Sheralee
See the shining in your eyes
And I realise
We need something we can’t find
Sheralee

Watching your reflection dancing on the wall
Feeling your obsession, girl you give it all
You tell me it’s never been
Oh so good for you
When the morning comes around
You know that I’ll be leaving you

I know where I want to be
Sheralee
Drowning in your fantasy
Sheralee
I just want to hold you tight
Make it right thro the night
Won’t you give your love to me
Sheralee
Hold your body close to mine
Sheralee
We’re both running out of time
Sheralee
See the shining in your eyes
And I realise
We need something we can’t find
Sheralee
Track Name: The Hanging Tree
All of those summer days
We dreamed our life away
Now winter’s drawing in
And so the end begins

They’re calling me
To the hanging tree
They’re calling me
To the hanging tree

What of the friends we made
When laughter filled the days
But echo’s fading now
Cut short by the rope and bow

They’re taking me
To the hanging tree
They’re taking me
To the hanging tree

And so my final ride
On that highway to the sky
Will you be waiting there
Oh God I feel so scared

Rescue me
From the hanging tree
Won’t you rescue me
From the hanging tree
