Lyrics

1. HEART OF STONE

Tell me how you hope to make amends
Does the means justify the ends, you can't defend
Promises lay scattered all around
You kicked me even though I was down, down on the ground

Truth is simple, yes, I know
Guess I'll just get up and go
Say you're sorry, it's too late
You played your cards and sealed your fate

I can't take it
I don't want your heart made of stone
So find another fool, leave me alone
I don't need it
I won't feed it, breaking my bones
So find another fool, leave me alone

Did you ever stop and think of me
To satisfy your inner vanity, now I see
Hopeless from the start, I should have known
Taken in by your heart made of stone, I'm not alone

Truth is simple, yes, I know
Guess I'll just get up and go
Say you're sorry, it's too late
You played your cards and sealed your fate

I can't take it
I don't want your heart made of stone
So find another fool, leave me alone
I don't need it
I won't feed it, breaking my bones
So find another fool, leave me alone




2. MOMENT OF TRUTH

Got my back against the wall
I'll never give up hope at all
Can't find a reason, feeling tense
Caught in the middle of no common sense

Sleepless nights, time stands still
I fear the worst, pray it never will
Breathless moments, can I cope?
Seconds count, I pray for hope

This is more than I can take
Nothing left for you to break
Look to the sky, hear my cry

Compassion lies in a sea of hate
Faceless voices hold our fate
Ignorance is no excuse
No dignity in your abuse

This is more than I can take
Nothing left for you to break
Look to the sky, hear my cry

Well, it's the moment of truth
Feeling on fire, left only with thoughts of you
The moment of truth
Cling to my desire, waiting for you
It's the moment of truth
Feeling on fire, emotion runs deep for you
The moment of truth
Cling to my desire, waiting for you

Chase the hunger, feel the pain
Think I've finally gone insane
My body broken, still I refuse
Remain standing, I'll never loose

Sleepless nights, time stands still
I fear the worst, pray it never will
Breathless moments, can I cope?
Seconds count, I pray for hope

This is more then I can take
Nothing left for you to break
Look to the sky, hear my cry

Well, it's the moment of truth
Feeling on fire, left only with thoughts of you
The moment of truth
Cling to my desire, waiting for you
It's the moment of truth
Feeling on fire, emotion runs deep for you
The moment of truth
Cling to my desire, waiting for you




3. IN THE NAME OF THE CAUSE

Distant thunder echoes then a shaft of light
Breaks the spell of darkness, is this the sign the end's in sight?
Came with it all worked out, we know what's best for you
Lead you to the Promised Land, we are the way, we are the truth

Going to takes us all to the wall
So what the hell we fighting for?

Is there ever any reason
When wasted lives leave mothers grieving
In the name of the cause
And as the searing sun beats down
Another city taken down
In the name of the cause

Burning heat, the desert sun, walk the streets, a smoking gun
Pray to god, what have we done? The fighting rages on and on
I just need a reason, don't want your lies
Feels like open season, justify why I should die

Going to takes us all to the wall
So what the hell we fighting for?

Is there ever any reason
When wasted lives leave mothers grieving
In the name of the cause
And as the searing sun beats down
Another city taken down
In the name of the cause




4. BLINDED BY A LIE

I ain't superstitious
I've been here before, I want to know
I can feel the spell I'm under
Just can't take no more, I want to know

There's a voice inside, won't leave me be
Set me free, let me be

'Cause we're blinded by, blinded by a lie
So forgive our sins, we ain't about to cry

It's a crazy premonition
I've seen it all before, I got to know
I can feel the spell I'm under
Just won't take no more, I got to know

You're my voice inside, I can't break free
Let me be, come on, set me free

'Cause we're blinded by, blinded by a lie
So forgive our sins, we ain't about to cry
Blinded by, blinded by a lie
So forgive our sins, we never aimed so high

I'm chasing your shadows no more
I'm just fooling myself, nobody else




5. LAST SNOWS OF WINTER

I sit here with my pictures of you
Memories from our past
Hoping that the pain will end at last

It only seems a moment ago
I heard you laugh so clear
I turn around to find there's no one here

Last snows of winter fall
They hide your footsteps from our door
And I just break down crying

Suddenly you're taken from me
And I'm lost without you now
Trying to find a way
To make it through the days somehow

Echoes from an empty room
We filled with hopes and schemes
All remain unopened endless dreams

I hear you in the summer breeze
You're the warmth of the sun
The ocean waves forever rolling on

Still pray for the reason why you had to die
The anger wells inside
And I just can't stop crying

Suddenly you're taken from me
And I'm lost without you now
Trying to find a way
To make it through the days somehow

It's so hard to carry on
But I know I must be strong
The love I shared with you
I know will see me through




6. SPIRIT OF MAN

As the setting sun falls deep into the sea
We call across the land, preserve our history
The fight for freedom, love and liberty
The right to live our lives, alone and peacefully

Can you feel the rising in the air?
Pray our God is there
Stand together mountain tall
Until the last man falls

Can you hear the calling?
The spirit of man
A new day dawning
Our fathers' land

Shadows on the land hide echoes from the past
Our fight will never end but it can never last?
Peace and justice should be for one and all
Till that time arrives we'll answer to the call

Can you feel the rising in the air?
Pray our God is there
Stand together mountain tall
Until the last man falls

Can you hear the calling?
The spirit of man
A new day dawning
Our fathers' land




7. THE FIRE WITHIN ME

Is this just a dream?
When your eyes met mine
They touched me deep inside
Now I'm by your side
In the heat of the night
Your soft caress, a moment lost in time
A love sublime

Feeling your touch and your kisses refrain
Knowing that you are the one
All through the night, hold you close in my arms
Till dawn brings the light of the sun

Are you just a dream?
If I open up my eyes will you be there
I don't think I dare
With a gentle kiss
I'm right back by your side and you're still there
The answer to my prayer

Feeling your touch and your kisses refrain
Knowing that you are the one
All through the night, hold you close in my arms
Till dawn brings the light of the sun

You're the fire within me
The burning heart that helps me find my soul
You're the light within me
It's the light within me

You changed all of my world
Do you feel the same for me as I to you?
Got to hear the truth
Let's hold on to
All that we have now our dreams come true
My dream was you

Feeling your touch and your kisses refrain
Knowing that you are the one
All through the night, hold you close in my arms
Till dawn brings the light of the sun

You're the fire within me
The burning heart that helps me find my soul
You're the light within me
It's the light within me

You're the fire within me
The burning heart that helps me find my soul
You're the light within me
You're the one, the half that made me whole
You are the fire within me
The burning heart that helps me find my soul




8. JUDGMENT DAY

Can you see ahead? Hold close what's dear
Look forward, son, confront your fears
The time has come, thy will done
You've lived your life what's done is done

Can't turn around
Don't make a sound
Can't turn around

As darkness falls, in hallowed halls
To hear our fate, will we live or die
From blackened skies, voices say this is our judgement day

Walk in the light, don't stray too far
Nowhere to hide, they know where you are
So keep your faith, your conscience clear
With the grace of God who's always near

Can't turn around
Don't make a sound
Can't turn around

As darkness falls, in hallowed halls
To hear our fate, will we live or die
From blackened skies, voices say this is our judgement day

No, not what we do, or do we take heed
Swallow our pride, forsake our greed
To know deep inside, hold close to our hearts
The truth is within, right from the start

The trials of life lost in a dream
Is everything really what is seems?
For this the path, make no mistake
And look to God our souls to take

Can't turn around
Don't make a sound
Can't turn around

As darkness falls, in hallowed halls
To hear our fate, will we live or die
From blackened skies, voices say this is our judgement day




9. LOST TO THE NIGHT

Chasing our dreams in the city
These streets ain't paved with gold
But I won't sell my soul

Down on my luck, ain't it a pity?
People look, they just stare
Nobody sees, nobody's there

Now we're lost to the night
'Cause we're living in our dreams
We're blinded by the lights
And nothing's what it seems
We're lost to the night
But the lights don't seem the same
The dream won't fade away
There's no one left to blame

It's a crazy world that we live in
Guess some things just don't change
The story stays the same

Down on my knees, ain't it a pity?
They all look, they just stare
Nobody hears, nobody cares

Now we're lost to the night
'Cause we're living in our dreams
We're blinded by the lights
And nothing's what it seems
We're lost to the night
But the lights don't seem the same
The dream won't fade away
There's no one left to blame




10. BEAUTIFUL MIND

Summer's day at the water's edge
Smiles at me, for a moment she's mine
And as we talk, she whispers this rhyme
Now I'm lost in her beautiful mind

Wind in her hair, need to catch my breath
Hold her there just for a while
And as we walk I still hear the rhyme
Now I'm lost in her beautiful mind

"They call me the lady
Close your eyes, I'll be there
So fall asleep, your soul I'll keep
I'm the answer to your prayer"

All alone in my search for you
Right or wrong, tell me is it the cure?
And as I sleep I still hear the rhyme
Still lost in her beautiful mind

"They call me the lady
Close your eyes, I'll be there
So fall asleep, your soul I'll keep
I'm the answer to your prayer"

I take what you give
Without you I can't live
Your burning heart of fire
And the price that I pay
Is to live all my days
In your world of empty desire

Shattered lives full of broken dreams
Lonely nights that never end
Am I the one or do I stand in a line
All lost in her beautiful mind

"They call me the lady
Close your eyes, I'll be there
So fall asleep, your soul I'll keep
I'm the answer to your prayer"




11. WALK ON THE WATER

Lost in your smile
I'm lost in your innocence
Playing a game I know I can't lose
Who makes the rules?
Who say's what's right or wrong?
Show me a man who lives without sin

How will I know when I get it right?
Will I walk on water?
How will I know will I see the light?
Will I walk on water?

Lost in a dream
I'm lost in the make believe
The truth that we seek so plain to see
The price that I pay
No one can understand
Sometimes in life the best things are free
For you and me

How will I know when I get it right?
Will I walk on water?
How will I know will I see the light?
Will I walk on water?

If all I have to give is what I feel inside
If I lose my way will you be there by my side?




12. END OF THE STORY

I think I saw a light at the end of the road
I didn't believe we'd get this far
I think I heard the sound of a forgotten song
Making me feel like we belong

Then I see that it's fine
For it's the end of the story now
Look at me, we survived
Today, some way, somehow
Then you'll see you can leave your fear behind
You and me, forever free

At our journey's end, having rode the storm
Tears stained memories keep us warm
Our forgotten youth only hides the truth
I'll hold you close away from harm

Then I see that it's fine
For it's the end of the story now
Look at me, we survived
Today, some way, somehow
Then you'll see you can leave your fear behind
You and me, forever free

Even at our darkest time
From a ray of light, a bell that chimes
It sends a message through the air
Hold strong and never fear
Right the wrongs, you're so near
Only then will it be clear

Then I see that it's fine
For it's the end of the story now
Look at me, we survived
Today, some way, somehow
Then you'll see you can leave your fear behind
You and me, forever free

Now that our time is done, in victory the battle won
Freedom reigns for one and all
So lest we forget, and history regret
We nearly didn't make it here at all

Then I see that it's fine
For it's the end of the story now
Look at me, we survived
Today, some way, somehow
Then you'll see you can leave your fear behind
You and me, forever free
