Track Name: Vanished from Earth (intro)
Instrumental
Track Name: Hydra
Now the end of this age has come
Forget your liberty
They know everything that you do
Keep track of what you say

Lust for power, lust for gold
And you become their slave
They'll tear you down
They'll break you down
Again

Through the ages they have left you out
without a choice
So they fear your awareness
of what's going on


Now it's time to open your eyes
Don't look the other way
Now it's time to inform yourself
And take a stand

They have harvested conformity
And inactivity
Everything that they claim they give you
was yours all along

Lust for power, lust for gold
And you become their slave
They'll tear you down
They'll break you down
Again

Now it's time to open your eyes
Don't look the other way
Now it's time to inform yourself
And take a stand


Don't you waive the power
To let them tell you what to see

Unjustice runs the world
Don't let them take away,
Your chance

Now it's time to open your eyes
Don't look the other way
Now it's time to inform yourself
And take a stand
Track Name: Fight the Power
Maybe it’s time to discover all lies
And the powers that be share their insights;
People should then realise it’s not late
To recover and put evil at bay.

Forces and conspiracies are at play
But our part is to unveil them as well;
Poverty, injustice, will drive us to hell
The economics of perdition we dread.


This time as you know there’s no time to be afraid
Next time let us hope we’ll stay awhile.

This time as you know we shall overcome again
Next time let us hope we’ll fight with wrath.


Coming together will strengthen our will
There’s no might which could distract us again;
Unless we cave in and hand in our wealth
To the imperium as its power prevails.

This time as you know there’s no time to be afraid
Next time let us hope we’ll stay awhile.

This time as you know we shall overcome again
Next time let us hope we’ll fight with wrath.

Caring and nurturing is what we need
But they strive to make it happen so brief;
We must resist, we must gather our strength
We must fight not to relinquish our fate.

This time as you know there’s no time to be afraid
Next time let us hope we’ll stay awhile.

This time as you know we shall overcome again
Next time let us hope we’ll fight with wrath.
Track Name: Daenerys
And then the morning light
awoke me from my sleep
All innocence was
lost without a trace

Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more
Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more

And when the night comes
and nothing is the same
I'll embrace who I am

Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more
Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more

Finally I've come to understand
that there's nothing more to fear

Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more
Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more

"When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east
and mountains blow in the wind like leaves"

"When your womb quickens again, and you bear a living child
then he will return and not before"

And then the evening star
reigned in the skies again
my path became clear once more


Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more
Washed from the eyes of our mind
The person I was
Will be no more
Track Name: The Girl in the Mirror
They disembarked in '45,
no one smiled

Disemobodied and out of hope
no home to long

"This should never happen again,
Oh love, please don't leave me again"
She said

Who would ever have though
that this could happen?
While he was fighting for her
The Blitz took his wife

"This should never happen again,
Oh love, please don't leave me again"
She said



Born close to the edge
I was born and raised in the depths of hell
Escaped to the islands as a child
in '17

I lived in the streets, I knew Aqualunq
and some gal Mary
But I always chased a stupid Dream
Even though my life was a passion play

Finally I stood up
made the final cut of my former life
Even met a girl who made me feel
I knew the light

But news of the world came to town
in '39
and i had to leave again
it was all a mirage

Chorus:
The last thing she ever said to me was
"please don't leave again"
And I never saw her face again
even though I came back home

Living in the past
I spend my life dreaming of those days
but so many years have passed
it all feels like moving pictures

I wish she was here
even though sometimes I feel ashamed
That so many years have passed
and I can't recall her face

The last thing she ever said to me was
"please don't leave again"
And I never saw her face again
even though I came back home


When did I start to forget you?
When did you begin to slip my mind?

I'd give anything to see you
Come here, take my place in the world


I don't that think you'd be proud
if you saw what I've become

You deserve the place I have
let your spirit take my body

The ultimate sacrifice
I'll bring you from the grave

I'm not worth anything
I will gladly trade my life
I'll give you a second chance
this will be my sacrifice

I pray for you, lord of the night
to take what I can give
I will give you my life
in exchange for hers

My life is my only coin
I will giv e you all I have
Please accept my sacrifice
there is nothing I can do
Track Name: Pandora
Instrumental
Track Name: Grey Matter Absence
i. INTRO (instrumental)

ii. APPARENTLY NO CHOICE



Feeble and frail they obey with no question
What they are fed they digest with no answer.

They think they can manage their lives and we are pretentious.
They fail to see dreams aren’t real, gullible in danger.


Face the unchanging truth, rediscover fear
Fill your empty heads with some meaning.

Vie for the best of hearts, follow the design
Concentrate once more, leave your feelings.


Void and controlled, they are sheepish, you see it.
Those who wield power so simply deceive them.


Test every notion set, clearly they don’t care
They remain content if you trick them.

Under a veil of grey they will never fail
To react as they wish to see them.


But there’s another way
You can save what’s left
Open your eyes to see it.

Reach and stop the nonsense
There is no time, believe it
Catch the spirit.



Conspiring and plotting, their thoughts are serious.
Gray matter absence is what feeds their wheel.

But there’s another way
You can save what’s left
Open your eyes to see it.

Reach and stop the nonsense
There is no time, believe it
Catch the spirit.

iii. POSSIBLE REASONS


It’s because everything has lost its meaning
It’s because people now neglect their spirit.


It’s because everything has lost its meaning
It’s because people now neglect their spirit.

It’s because we are overwhelmed by trinkets
And our souls step by step lose their consistence.

iv. A DIFFERENT ME

Every day she gets up and expects
To see a better self reflected there.

She will never take what was given to her
Driven and estranged she lives her day.

Many like her think it is not enough
With what we’re given as a gift from above.

Alterations and a plastic shell
Is what they seek to leave their private hell.



It’s because our lives have lost their meaning
It’s because everyone refrains from thinking.

But there’s another way
You can save what’s left
Open your eyes to see it.

Reach and stop the nonsense
There is no time, believe it
Catch the spirit.

v. BRAINWASHING



Watch the screen, don’t criticise
What we tell you, you shall buy.

Here’s the news, we tell the truth
Everything is made up for you.


All our showbiz entertains,
You will never disobey.

We will tell you what to think
You relax and have your drink!


vi. NO SELF CONTROL



Relax, my friend
Sip that drink again
Your brain cells are dead
You act and don't repent.

Try to find
The keys and drive
Hurry, it's late
Your problems never wait.



Goodbye to pain
Free will and strength
You think you will emerge
Yet you can't think straight.

Sit down, drive
Ignore the lights
The others they don't count
They're haystacks in your path.


Weary, in pain
Suffering and lame
You crash and you don't care
Whoever is there.

Whenever the light
Shines in your eyes
You'll take that drink again
You're reckless and dead.


A driver, a stranger
Someone who was there
Was taken by surprise
The blackness of your car.

That's alcohol, again
Controlling your brain
Disruption of the self
So trivial it's a shame.



And what is right
Is never a must
You think the price
Is worth your life.

An endless fight
To quench your desires
Is what could drive
Your life to the light.



No thinking, no shame
No qualms, no faith;
You think it's all a game
To ruin life again.

Deceit, no care
Recklessness, neglect
A blinding glare of light
Smoke, glass and fire.


And what is right
Is never a must
You think the price
Is worth your life.

An endless story
That spoils all the glory
Of human mind
So precious in life.

vii. MEANDERING THOUGHTS (instrumental)

viii. GAMBLE YOUR LIFE



A dollar or so
I think I am in control
This game is a thrill
But I don't seem to win.

The ball is a-roll
The numbers are spinning for
The figure which will
Most surely my pockets fill.


And everyone is a potential failure
They play with me but they are dangerous strangers,
And I can't see what they are hiding from me
But they're driving me mad with their sound.

Hear the lottery is spinning round and round
They play high, the stakes rise
Hear them as they drive the city's underground.
They take my breath away.


Enough is enough,
I'm betting my final pounds
My family think
I'm working extra hours.

Their fate here I hold
I don't think I'll ever fold
I'm trying to quit,
But game controls my souls.


Hear the lottery is spinning round and round
They play high, the stakes rise
Hear them as they drive the city's underground.
They take my breath away.

Here the money changes hands but helps no one
We play high, we burn time!
Hear us as we drive the city's underground
We gamble lives away!

ix. REFLECTION? (instrumental)

x. A NICE SPIN

It's because everything has lost its meaning
And we're wrong, we forget the importance of our...

LIFE, is a precious gem
Don't you throw away your feelings,
Search your spirit.

Reach out and stop the nonsense
Open your eyes, believe and
Find some meaning.


xi. PRECIOUS CODA

It's because everything has lost its meaning
Steer the course of your life and find the strength in your SOUL.
