Track Name: This Is Madness
I got the time
Got the plan
And I have to make a stand
Cos you know life's what you make it

I have to fall
Have to sink
Think I need another a drink
Cos you know life's what you make it

I need a sign
Need a view
That’s the only thing to do
Cos you know life's what you make it

It’s all right
Its all wrong
Soon you know we'll all be gone
Cos you know life's what you make it

And you could say, there's something in a smile
No, no, let it go, I don't want to ever know, anything, anymore, just show me the door

I'm out of time
Out of luck
And I start to come unstuck
Cos I know it’s what I made it

Another fall
Another drink
There's no further left to sink
Cos I know it’s what I made it

Check the sign
Check the view
That’s the only thing to do
Cos I know it’s what I made it

It’s all right
It’s all wrong
Now it’s already gone
Cos I know it’s what I made it

And you could say, there's something in a smile
No, no, let it go, I don't want to ever know, anything, anymore, just show me the door

This is madness, yes I must confess
This is madness, oh and nothing less
Track Name: Who Are You
I don't know where we are going to
But I will let you know when I do
I can’t see if we will make it through
But you can tag along till we do

They tell you what they think you should be
They tell you what to do but

Who are you are you are who are you are
You are who are you are you are who are you?

Something’s coming; yeah something’s coming through the darkness
Something tells me it’s you
Time for telling, fortune or failure
But it will be you I'm sure

They tell you what they think you should be
They tell you what to do but

Who are you are you are who are you are
You are who are you are you are who are you?

Be yourself and no one else
Be yourself and no one else

Who are you are you are who are you are
You are who are you are you are who are you?
Track Name: Last Ninja
He's the man, he's the man, he's the man on the floor
He's got the moves and you know he's a warrior
Through the smoke, there’s a light like nothing you know
There’s a glint in his eye, cos he's ready to go

He spins around and around like a shirken star
Jumps up and down, it’s time to get to the bar
There's a band on the stage, but they're not the show
He's a bomb and you know he's going to blow

See him turn and spin
Yeah, the dancing assassin
Last Ninja

So he's moving and a grooving to the beats that play
He's staying right here; no he's not going away
Then out of nowhere the music that’s playing just stops
He turns around and looks at the DJ box

He bows his head, lifts his specs, wipes the sweat from his eyes
Takes a breath, lets it out, yes he’s gonna survive
The music’s back, so again, it’s go, go, go!
He's the bomb of the dance and he's going to blow

See him turn and spin
Yeah, the dancing assassin

Last ninja of the dance floor
Last Ninja on the dance floor
Track Name: Them & Us
From the bones and the contention
Reasons we forget, don't mention
It is our road to redemption
Just a path to rising tension

You will be my adversary
I must be your burden to carry
Until the fight is done
Until we've destroyed everyone, 'cos its

Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Not like you and me
Not like you and me
No, not like you and me
Yeah they're the enemy

And we say god made them that way

Cause is second to ambition
Grounds lost to the long attrition
We will wear down your defences
Time to face the consequences

You will be my great opponent
Up until the final moment
I see all that is so true
That I don't really even know you

Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Not like you and me
Not like you and me
No, not like you and me
Yeah they're the enemy

And we say god made them that way

You can't fight them all

‘Only them and us’ will just make puppets of us all
‘Only them and us’ won't help to catch you when you fall
‘Only them and us’ will make a of war something small
‘Only them and us’ will be the ending of us all

Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Only them and us
Not like you and me
Not like you and me
No, not like you and me
Yeah they're the enemy
Track Name: Do Not Pass Go
You've got the itch, you've got the cause
You've got a badge and a banner too

Time for a change, time for recourse
How could they disagree with you?

Calling fate and calling destiny
You want desperately to be somebody
Facing insults and the injuries
You want to challenge the monopoly
But I don't think you want to win

They have to pay, they have to answer too
They will be made to change their tune

And who can tell if you are right that
Something must be done and done soon

Calling fate and calling destiny
You want desperately to be somebody
Facing insults and the injuries
You want to challenge the monopoly
But I don't think you want to win

Where will this story end?
Feeding on unfounded fears
This can only end in tears

Calling fate and calling destiny
You want desperately to be somebody
Facing insults and the injuries
You want to challenge the monopoly
But I don't think you want to win

No, I don’t think you want to win
Track Name: Epic Fail
I know that you've been listening, to them
And building your picture
I see that now you are compelled, to believe
As if its scripture
My credibility erodes,
In your eyes, no possibility to ever undo
So sure of all the seeds they sewed
But everything you've ever been told is (probably) untrue

The second showing of the bill, but still
You're carving your sculpture
The rumour mill can't be dispelled, just received
Such sweet enrapture
Before my confidence departs
And my luck convinces me not to display my hand
Now it is time to play my part
But clearly the supply available exceeds demand

You win, end of story
One blow ends it for me
I know when I should stay down

Epic Fail

So what if I'm a failure
At least I'm not like you
So what if I'm a loser
At least I'm something true

So what if I'm a failure
At least I'm not like you
So what if I'm a loser
At least I'm something I consider true

Epic Fail
Track Name: Together = Alone
I made the call and spoke to you just in time
Later you said it stopped you taking your own life
You said it’s all just been so low
Now there is nothing left you said but I know that

You’d cut your wrist for anything
You’d cut your wrist for anyone
You’d cut your wrist for anything
You’d cut your wrist for

Anyone that could give you what you can't find on your own
Anything that could show you all the love you've never known
But even when we're together, we are alone

You've been around, think you've found that someone new
Then you've been used and abused and embarrassed too
You think they understand you so well
They're still the only one for me you say, but I know that

You’d give yourself for anything
You’d give yourself to anyone
You’d give yourself for anything
You’d give yourself to

Anyone who could give you what you can't find on your own
Anything that could show you all the love you've never known
But even though we're together we are alone

Together Alone

You’d give yourself for anything
You’d give yourself to anyone
You’d give yourself for anything
You’d give yourself to

Anyone who could give you what you can't find on your own
Anything that could show you all the love you've never known
So even though we're together we are alone
Track Name: Try On My Eyes
Look at the page and I see
Words telling me to believe
Subtle subjective attacks
Put across as just the facts

Everything's simple you see
Black on white paper must be
Something to trust in today
"We are right" they say

Try on my eyes, but not to see
You will be blind yet speak for me
Try on my eyes, focus gone
No fight but I've already won


Switch on the TV to find
Pictures to persuade the mind
That thinking is long in the tooth
Never mind about the truth

Don't look beyond or beneath
That's not the way to relief
We will show you the right way
"Follow us" they say

Try on my eyes, but not to see
You will be blind yet speak for me
Try on my eyes, focus gone
No fight but I've already won

de omnibus dubitandum

Try on my eyes, watch your freedom go
Try on my eyes, you will never know
Try on my lies, they're a perfect fit
No sense in making sense of it

Everything is to be questioned
Between lies are the agendas
Think before you preach another's words
Track Name: Worth It
Me,
It’s all I see
My only need
Is just my profound egocentricity

From birth,
I've known my worth
Yes it’s my right to expect all of the earth

So you take one
And I'll take three
In fact just give that one right back here to me

It’s all mine
By my design
Now get to the back of the line

You won't catch me
No you won't catch me
No you can’t catch me no

Because I can, because I do
Because I deserve more then you
Because I never need admit
Because I am worth it

Second verse,
Same as the first
Same curse
Thought I'd get better but I only get worse

It’s true
I punish you
When you’re forced to live the way I want to

Much more
I'll take for sure
There are no battles because I own the war

And you will find
You are maligned
You see you don't matter and I don't mind

You won't catch me
No you won't catch me
No you can’t catch me no

Because I can, because I do
Because I deserve more then you
Because I never need admit
Because I am worth it
Track Name: No Joke
So I know it’s time to go
What you said is so wrong
But you must be joking, must be joking

You think you know,
You think you know someone
But you know nothing
Give me a reason to believe

And so you see
And so you see something
Something you can't deny
Give me a reason to believe

We are not so far apart
Though I think we are
You have dropped the bomb
This has gone too far

You want to run
You want to run faster
From impending disaster
Give me a reason to believe

But it makes sense
Yeah it makes sense to you
Everything fits so well
Give me a reason to believe

We are not so far apart
Though I think we are
You have dropped the bomb
This has gone too far

So I know it’s time to go
What you said is so wrong

You must be joking
You have to be joking
You’ve got to be joking
Must be joking yeah

Feeding time again
Feeding time

Feeding time again
And you're not joking
Feeding time again
No you’re not joking

It’s no joke
No, it’s no joke
No, it’s no joke
No, it’s no joke
No
Track Name: Thank You Mister Atkins
You make us ride, fill us with pride, decide our lives and then
You tell us go, don't want to know if we'll survive

So we march and we die,
Families cry, do you care

We are the one, we are the one,
Who serve despite oblivion
You are the ones, you are the ones
Who put the men behind the guns

You hide at the back, calling attack, we fade to black and then
You deny we exist, no not on your list, now you are dismissed

So we fall and we crawl,
Just so you can forget us all

We are the one, we are the one,
Who serve despite oblivion
You are the ones, you are the ones
Who put the men under the gun

So we march on
Oblivion

We are the one, we are the one,
Who serve despite oblivion
You are the ones, you are the ones
Who put the men under the gun

We are the one, we are the one,
Who serve despite oblivion
You are the ones, you are the ones
Who put the men under the gun
Track Name: Concrete Shoes
So this, is what it’s about
You know there may be some flaws
But nothing you can't iron out

Give and then give some more
You know you can forgive anything
As long as you just ignore it

Welcome to the family
Cutting cruelty
You're just a casualty
You will be my ever after
I will be your great disaster
Baby I'm your concrete shoes
And they will cling to you

You try and then try again
To explain away marks
That reveal a deeper stain

Pain is the name of this game
You know that there is no love
Without some sacrifice

Welcome to the family
Cutting cruelty
You're just a casualty
You will be my ever after
I will be your great disaster
Baby I'm your concrete shoes
And they will cling to you

Should you stay or go you don't know
I'll convince you I will change though
You can't be sure, you must endure
Take the strain behind that closed door
Sinking further under straying further from parole
Concrete shoes still clinging to you weighing down your soul

Welcome to the family
Cutting cruelty
You're just a casualty
You will be my ever after
I will be your great disaster
Baby I'm your concrete shoes
And they will cling to you
Track Name: Ouroboros
This is the final warning
This is the ending of it all
This is the scratching record
This is the reason and the fall

You are an instrument though
Out of the instruments of time
You are a staccato note
Trapped between too many lines

Replicate, duplicate, imitate, desecrate,
Procreate, conjugate, stand in line and await
Just to try to feel something

Yeah, I think you understand.
It’s all been done before, yet you want to turn your hand and
Yeah, I think you wanted to,
It’s nice to be the wise one but it's better to be you

This is the turning wheel
This is the end and yet the start
This is the ouroborus
Watch us join as we depart

We are the orchestra now
Playing the fanfare and last post
We are a symphony chime
Heralding children and the ghosts

Replicate, duplicate, imitate, desecrate,
Procreate, conjugate, stand in line and await
Just to try to feel something

Yeah, I think you understand.
It’s all been done before, yet you want to turn your hand and
Yeah, I think you wanted to,
It’s nice to be the wise one but it's better to be you

Yeah, I think you understand.
It’s all been done before and yet you have to turn your hand
Yeah, I think you wanted to,
It’s nice to be wise, but it's best to be you

And when you get to the end
It’s time to begin again
Yes when you start at the end
No choice, just begin again
