Track Name: Going to War
Ever since the dawn of time men fought in battles
With results shaping our destiny
Once again we find ourselves facing a struggle
With our own kin as the enemy

Leaders of men with twisted ideologies
Put to use to raise the mightiest armies
Negotiations just a useless masquerade
To give in would mean to surrender

Diplomacy has failed
No more room to compromise
The only solution is going
To war

[Chorus]
No reason to believe
There is another way
Going to war
Settling the score
We sacrifice our sons
To go to war

SOLO (Max/Oli)

As the bullets fly with the smell of death filling the air
Soldiers fall on the battlefield
Do we have the right to ask the question : is it fair
To sacrifice for an ideal?

When the war is over, who wins or loses in the end?
Soldiers, countries, you or me?
As those in power they plot to go to war again
From their towers made of ivory

Diplomacy has failed
No more room to compromise
The only solution is going
To war

[Chorus]
Track Name: Doomsday Prediction
Looking in the crystal ball
Trying to foresee the fall
Believers hanging onto every word

Prophets of impending doom
Proclaiming that disaster looms
A sign sent from the gods seen in the stars

War of the worlds will be raging
When we see the blood moon rising
So the ancient writings have foretold

The earth will split, fires will burn
There will be death at every turn
As judgement from the heavens strikes us all

Pretending to hold the key
To a mystical truth
To realize the prophecy
The madmen they're counting on you
Before we all are sent to hell
There will be one hundred and twelve
Sitting one by one upon the throne

In the meantime we'll receive the mark
So the tribulation starts
Then shall appear the sign of the son of man

Tides will rise, the earth will shake
Desolation in its wake
Raining fire from the skies above

So the clairvoyant has seen
appearing to him in a dream
He's the only one to know the truth

[Chorus]
Doesn't matter what you've seen
The future is a mystery
Destiny is in our hands
No one can foresee the end
Terrorizing projections
Tantalizing obsession
The end of the world in a doomsday prediction

TWIN LEAD (Oli/Max)
SOLO (Max)

The day has finally arrived
The faithfuls ready to give their lives
Ready for the ultimate sacrifice

The day after the sun will rise
Emptiness will fill their eyes
As another takes his turn to spread the lies

[Chorus]
Track Name: Left to the Sharks
Sinking so low, your breath you can't hold
Panic is starting to rise

Corrupt to the core, you did what they told
Swimming in an ocean of lies

Trying so hard to get to the shore
Exhausting yourself all the while

They're circling around and you know deep down
This is the end of the line

[Chorus]
It's a deadly game
You're killed or you drown
You're left to the sharks
No one can save you now
Left to the sharks
They're going to eat you alive

Blinded by promise of riches and power
Striking a deal with the devil

A pyramid scheme to weaken and devour
Taking what he feels entitled

Slowly but surely his grip's tightening harder
You're sinking to the abyss below

Wounded and weak your blood taints the water
As he tears the flesh from your bones

[Chorus]

SOLO (Oli)
TWIN LEAD (Oli/Max)
SOLO (Max)

Sinking so low, your breath you can't hold
Panic is starting to rise

Corrupt to the core, you did what they told
Swimming in an ocean of lies

Trying so hard to get to the shore
Exhausting yourself all the while

They're circling around and you know deep down
You've reached the end of the line

[Chorus]
Track Name: Make Them Fear Us
There was once a time when we thought that all was right
There was once a time when our sight was dark as night
Time has come for us to rise and take back what is ours
Inside our hearts there's a fire that will burn all of their lies

Can you hear the revolution calling?
Can you feel it's power?

For a too long time they have tried to keep us at bay
With empty promises they have tried to get away
No more, we've had enough, there needs to be a change
the balance of power will shift, the world we'll rearrange

Can you hear the revolution calling?
Can you feel it's power?

[Chorus]
Strike, the time is right
Down, we'll make them fall
Take, what's rightfully ours
We will make them fear us

Strike, the time is right
Down, we'll make them fall
Take, what's rightfully ours
They will never break us

(Solo Oli)

Always on the prowl, taking chances when we can
To unveil the truth and bring justice to the land
There's no remorse, we'll never stop until we get what we want
Until we're satisfied, their darkest dreams we'll haunt

Now you have a choice of which side you're gonna take
You must be wise because it's time to make or break
We will tear all the walls down and bring empires to their knees
A little bit of faith is all that we ask that you bring

Can you hear the revolution calling?
Can you feel it's power?

[Chorus]

(Solo Oli)

[Chorus]
Track Name: Piercing the Veil
Lost in a sea of madness
Where no one knows the truth
Their withered hands with bony fingers point at you

They know you've lost your mind
In their fight to lead the blind
Feeding on your trust, they reduce your soul to dust

All around immense decay
Reason slips away
The iron grip of their words tightening on your world

Treating you like a slave
They make you dig your grave
The torment never ends, your will they want to bend

Down on your knees, you do as they please
Helping them to slowly spread the disease
No pride and no shame, you’re taking the blame
A pawn caught within their mischievous game
Your burden you bear and fight the despair
Hoping that in the end life will be fair
Nothing to gain in playing this game, nothing to gain, nothing but pain

[Chorus]
Break the chains that bind you
Pierce the veil that’s clouding your eyes
Only then will you find, the answers hidden deep inside

Lost in a sea of madness
Where no one knows the truth
Their withered hands with bony fingers point at you

Your time is up, you’re next in line
Accused of fictitious crimes, they’re waiting on their turn
To send you to hell to burn

Down on your knees, you do as they please
Helping them to slowly spread the disease
No pride and no shame, you’re taking the blame
A pawn caught within their mischievous game
Your burden you bear and fight the despair
Hoping that in the end life will be fair
Nothing to gain in playing this game, nothing to gain, nothing but pain

(Solo Oli)
[Chorus]
Track Name: The Evil in the Dark
One by one they die
No matter how I try
I need you to hear me
Will you listen to my story?

When the curtain falls
I can hear it call
Deep within the dark
A voice that petrifies my heart

Noises in the wall
Footsteps in the hall
Or maybe it's my mind
Playing with me one more time

Closet door obsession
Was it shut or opened?
Or maybe just a crack?
As it was when I came back

[Chorus]
Deep in the darkness, it hides and it waits
Feeding on fear and on sin
Powerful presence, evil entity
Taking you on as its prey

Slithering in the shadows
Moving in the night
Closet door again
Wonder if this will ever end

What happened to my life?
I've sedated my wife
On the couch, laying down
Going to sleep with the lights on

Wherever I run
Wherever I hide
It follows me around
Even when moving out of town

I can't stand this door
Can't see it anymore
Can't open it at all
Keeping my boots in the hall

Solo (Max/Oli)

There it is again
The door is blown wide open
Mud and filth on the floor
From the closet to the front door

Is it going out?
Is it coming in?
Records scratched, covered in slime
Mirrors are broken, the sounds, the sounds!!!

Just needed to tell my story
Now I have to leave
No one knows what I've seen
Not even the authorities

I'll be back again
To tell of you of the end
Oh my god, what's that noise?
What is wrong with your closet door?

[Chorus]
Track Name: Shifting Sands
Shifting sands of time flow through the hourglass
Carrying with it memories of a distant past
There's nothing that can stop the endless motion
There's nothing that can ever be undone

Looking in the mirror
It's reflection stares into my soul
As I'm growing old

Shifting sands of time flow through the hourglass
Carrying away things I can forget at last
Deep underneath what accumulates
Innocence is drowning away
No more a child, I realize and see
That life itself is not what it seems

Reflection in the mirror
Burns a hole into my soul
As death is drawing closer

The moment of birth is the start of the journey to death
Isn't it ironic in the end?
To answer the question that burns inside your head
The price to pay is the ultimate fare
Do we only have one shot at this?
If that's the case, what have you missed?
When the time comes, will you be proud of what you've done?

Can we break through the mirror?
Grab the hourglass and turn it upside down
Get another chance at life
And make the sands shift again

Could it be that all there is is just this reality?
And that time itself is only a fantasy?
The people that are gone where are they now?
Could they still be around out there somehow?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Is there nothing more that we can trust
And if god is real, what's he waiting for?
When I break through the mirror
Will you recognize my face once more?
When the hourglass is upside down
And the sands shift again

SOLO (Oli/Max/Oli/Max)
