Blood Red Day (5:13)Download Lyrics

Verse 1

Rip this terror, unforgivable, Raging error, undeniable, Taken to the edge to believe in your rot, To hate the decay is, to be stopped,

Never going to believe it, your false god, To deny that you want it in your faith you were robbed, Defended martrs, fighting for the light, But to reasoned judgement, you failed your fight,

Why don't you ever see, Agressive tainted lunacy, Freedom is a snake with with the venom in its eyes, Decended rights, smouldered burning fires,

Chorus

In this blood red day, Human life degrades, Nothing sacred's right, Darkness feeds the light,

Don't believe in what you see, Do you want be remembered for the killing of the free, Devisive, feeds this game, Faith is a healer your hatred's slain

Verse 2

Vicious is a reason, the names you say, Destruction of a vision, the slain your pray, Finding the way to the righteous path, Burning decay, eating shattered glass,

Stay away from the vision, the venoms primed, Innocence the right condition, to frame your mind, The devils in the detail, the forks in your brain, Feel the flames are a burning, your mind's insane

Verse 1

You step aside, don't you deny, my life today, Because of you, I felt I knew which way to be, I cannot it feel it, I cannot know, Cause I know where I am, but I don't know where to go.

Chorus

I'm never gonna be this way, and I feel you, But I don't know where to lay my broken bones, You stepped away, when I need you, And despite my agony I walk alone,

I'll never stray.

Verse 2

To find to a life, this way, to find a pot of gold, Your broken promises, your faith, it can be sold, You mark your freedom, with a beggers seal, To find your soul within, is a metric you can't steal.

Intro

Reflections of my life, is a story I once told, Denial my friend now, gripping, clutching, taking hold, But in the heart of me, is a freedom I can feel, And to taste it, to feed it, needs a vision I can see.

Verse 1

Right out of nowhere, you stepped onto the stage, Defined myself there, the black and white started to grey, Outside convention I would try to map my rules, And I deny you, and try to hide you, but I don't know what to do,

Outside this I would see, a broken, broken man, And to deny him, would decry him, his unexpectated plan, And then you saw him, and explored him, and came to find out more, And when he saw you, and he knew you, he could never close this door.

Verse 2

The mix of light and shade, is a combination told, The tapestry prevails, as this story here unfolds, Despite uncertainty, despite the notes not played, Every second, of every minute, I wouldnt change a day.

And as our subjects walk, into this new domain, And they breathe it, and they feel it, and they knows its right for them, To deny what, is in your mind, locked inside the box you’ve freed, Would deprive you, of what is right to, just look inside of me.

Chorus

Why me?

Untouched Face (6:17)Download Lyrics

Intro

Look into my eyes, do you want to be the one, To see inside my mind, I'm broken and I'm bleeding alone, The ones who took my side, the rage it came as suicide, The free, that we should be, my prison is my mind.

Verse 1

Then you begin, defend, medalled hero's, fallen men, A land thats pure, an untouched face, a freedom that has been displaced, The pain of one, that many feel, the graves unmarked, these killing fields, To hate this kind, that share one mind, what is hell is wrong what you…what is wrong with you?

Chorus

Outside this land of nothing lies, They're free, to hate, deny their crimes, Despite the freedom, we believe,

These fields, where nothing ever grows, Designed, from ages we once told, Our fathers never wanted me.

Verse 2

The night it falls as one, the moon replaced the burning sun, The air is still, the peaceful shrill, the crickets out behind the hill, Then the trees they sway, and our people pray, please don't make this judgement day, So many things not said and done, how did life become this way?

The bodies lay as one, cast aside, in the morning sun, Their faces still, but their eyes they tell, the untold misery, the hell, Inflicting pain, on the children slain, to liberate, your freedom's stained, Your god is maimed with your hate engrained, and your memory will stay.

What Is Me? (5:05)Download Lyrics

Verse 1

Behind my covered eyes, I see the light shine through, Unfolded my disguise, my visions turn to you, To want, to hold, to love, disfigured emotions bare, I look beyond this world, to a future we can share,

Chorus

To you, to you, I look to you, To tell me what, what I have to do, I stepped away, denied, to hide this light, the shadows clothing me, What is me, what is me?

Verse 2

The light it turns to shade, the twilight hour's here, Despite our weaknesses, the sunshine cannot clear, This pain, it floods, my mind, the faithless will despair, But to live, to be at one, is a storm that I must fair.

Endless Days (5:17)Download Lyrics

This open road unfolds, the trees begin to sway, Left all my hopes and dreams, I've got to get away, I don't know why you called, cause I never wanted to, Just me, my mind and I, the complications through.

I don't know how you found me, The shadows covering my face, Defined the world around me, Designed, these never ending days,

I don't know how you saw me, This road, the flicker of my life, The world begins to taunt me, Inside, the fragments of my mind.

The road it shows it signs, the torrid years decayed, Once young and full of life, its painful scars are laid, Despite these imperfections, I'm never going back, The field of discontent, degeneration lacks.

I don't know how you found me, The shadows covering my face, Defined the world around me, Designed, these never ending days,

I don't know how you saw me, This road, the flicker of my life, The world begins to taunt me, Inside, the fragments of my mind. I don't know how you found me, The shadows covering my face, Defined the world around me, Designed, these never ending days,

I don't know how you saw me, This road, the flicker of my life, The world begins to taunt me, Inside, the fragments of my mind.

I don't know how you found me, The shadows covering my face, Defined the world around me, Designed, these never ending days,

I don't know how you saw me, This road, the flicker of my life, The world begins to taunt me, Inside, the fragments of my mind.

Little Coal Nose (4:26)Download Lyrics

Take my pulse, snapshot my life today, Memories, of a soul destined to stay,

Inside me, You never, never went away Inside me, Your with me every single day, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little black coal nose, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little nose

Late at night, when the lights turned down low, Laying there, the dude and you will never go, You get up, move around, stretch, take a shit and turn around, Look up high, smile at me, you never gonna stop believing in me,

Inside me, You never, never went away Inside me, Your with me every single day, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little black coal nose, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little nose

Solo

Inside me, You never, never went away Inside me, Your with me every single day, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little black coal nose, I can feel you, your so close, Look at that little nose

(Also, there could be “yes I know” instead of the second “your so close”)

Reflections (6:10)Download Lyrics

I see you, I see you there, Outside my life, you turned the tide, And we fell through the sky,

I feel you. the real you there, As the light subsides, the flicker dies, And we all fall down right,

To see, look inside of me, Do you want to be the one, who took this song, And re-arranged the lines I've drawn,

To be, freedom caught me free, Decided its unreal to say, that I'm this way, When all the rules decide, that I'm allright

You take me, you break me down, As I find my feet, and find I feel, I can't fight my mind,

I face you, I feel your fire, As I edge away, my senses say, You won't live your life,

To see, look inside of me, Do you want to be the one, who took this song, And re-arranged the lines I've drawn,

To be, freedom caught me free, Decided its unreal to say, that I'm this way, When all the rules decide, that I'm allright

Solo

To see, look inside of me, Do you want to be the one, who took this song, And re-arranged the lines I've drawn,

To be, freedom caught me free, Decided its unreal to say, that I'm this way, When all the rules decide,

To see, look inside of me, Do you want to be the one, who took this song, And re-arranged the lines I've drawn,

To be, freedom caught me free, Decided its unreal to say, that I'm this way, When all the rules decide, that I'm allright

Voices Of Freedom (5:02)Download Lyrics

Standing beneathe your drifted bones, The shining green your thrown, The will to stand above and say, I won't live life this way,

Don't you want to see, the way, The way we'd be, the life, the you could lead, Unchained and roaming free,

I believe, In everything you say, Our rights have gone away, and you said, I believe, In finding people fair, but the road leads to despair,

As one, we stand, so proud and tall, For freedom never falls, Below, the hoarders, stash their things, Trapped by misery, Freedom stepped aside, stood tall, took back his broken pride, Designed, to play the game, to never be the same,

I believe, In everything you say, Our rights have gone away, and you said, I believe, In finding people fair, but the road leads to despair, won't you say, I believe, In everything you say, But the rights have gone away, won't you say, I believe, In finding people fair, but the road leads to despair.

Beating Heart (6:35)Download Lyrics

Go!

Insane memories, Ripped from my brain, to defend the free, Hated souls of a bygone age, take our tanks and our hand grenades, Never believe your brain, Driven by the fuckers who denied my reign, Driven by the freedom of the people by the sea, Small town heros they will breed,

Fighting, forward go, Take your blades and stab them so, Braides of colour, safe to see, Killing time for the enemy

Fighting, forward go, Rape and steal and take their homes, Reason, judgement, lunacy, Went away when defending me,

Inside the system, beats a lonely heart, Defied by wisdom, freedom ripped apart, Repeating nothing, fighting those who feel, Defined by fighting, from scriptures so surreal

Wading mud and snow, Dogs of war, through the shit we go, Peace the emblem spread across our seal, fighting those who live to kill, Closer marching through, Never gonna stop until they hate us too, Never gonna stop until they get to see, Vicious butchers, they will breed

Fighting, forward go, Take your blades and stab them so, Braides of colour, safe to see, Killing time for the enemy

Fighting, forward go, Rape and steal and take their homes, Reason, judgement, lunacy, Went away when defending me Inside the system, beats a lonely heart, Defied by wisdom, freedom ripped apart, Repeating nothing, fighting those who feel, Defined by fighting, from scriptures so surreal

“I have asked for this radio and television time tonight for the purpose of announcing that we, today, have concluded an agreement to end the war and bring peace with honour in Vietnam and in South East Asia.”

Sun shine showers down In my mind everything is free The hatred is no more Familiar faces sitting round Nothing is surreal The darkness from before

I don’t see why

Blades of grass float in the wind Innocence for me The pain of this great land Standing strong and standing tall This hatred’s never gone When all I want to be

I don’t see why

I don’t see why
