Track Name: The Truth Behind the Lies
The Truth Behind the Lies
Never give him power if he can’t get enough
Driven by lust, no compassion no love
Hungered by wealth, by ego, by fame
His place in history with blood upon his name
A tongue that can’t be trusted
A man that’s rotten through
Who will sacrifice all, including me and you
Take the power from the man who doesn’t understand
How to live the life of the common man.

I can see the truth behind the lies
I can see it hiding behind your eyes
You wat to give an answer but it’s never true
Your actions speak louder, they’re the living truth
I can see the answer, I can see the truth
Your misdemeanours are the living proof

I know it feels so good
I know I know it’s got to end in blood
I know the truth behind the lies
I know I know everybody lives & dies

I’ve gotta see the fear, gotta feel gotta fear it
I’ve gotta see the fear, gotta feel gotta fear it
I’ve gotta see the fear, gotta feel gotta fear it
I know, I know why it feels so good
I see the world all drenched in blood
I see the evil that men, live & do
I see the rights & wrong in the likes of you
Likes of you

I know I know it feels so good
I know I know it feels so true
I don’t know why the sun rises, in the morning sky
I don’t know I know why we live & die
I know I know we have to try.
Track Name: Mercy
Mercy

I’m living in a world where I can’t see the light
Everyday feels like a long dark night
I’m reaching for the switches but the lights won’t come on
I’m looking for an answer but it’s all come undone

Mercy, have mercy on me

I’ve got so much to say but the words won’t come out
My mouth is open wide and no-one hears me shout
The tears are rolling down across my face
But nobody, nobody can see my in this whole damn place

Mercy, have mercy on me

I scream & I shout, still no-one hears
I open my eyes, I’m alone in here
I keep on feeling this whole worlds pain
Over & over, again & again

Mercy
Track Name: Saved the Day
Saved The Day
I know how it feels, it feels in my reality
I know how it looks, how it looks to be free
I know what it’s like, it’s like in your theory
Of truth
I know who to fear, the media keeps telling me
I know who to hate, the TV keeps on showing me
I know how to stay safe, in this land of justice
And peace
I know what to think, I hear what you’re saying to me
I know what you say should be, that much is plain to see
I know what I would like, but when can I see
Some proof

Insanity, depravity, trusting isn’t easy in this world for me
I’m looking for the answers all of the time, Nothing seems sane, it’s all on my mind
Lying is so easy, it’s all in your game, it’s driving me crazy, driving me insane
Now I need the answers, I can see you
I can see you, I can see you

I want see, want to hear, want to feel, want it to be real
To be real, to be real

I know what you want, what it is you want from me
Subservient obedience, total dependency
I know your game, know what it is you play
You break the rules
Your game of control, to manipulate reality
Your thirst for power, power over all you see
Your greed, your malice,
Your inhumanity
Orwell said it right, right back in 1948
Tell me this week, who is it that we should hate
Oceania? Eurasia? Eastasia?
Or is it just me
Track Name: Hammer & Nail
I’m the hammer, I’m the nail
I’m the winner, I’m the fail
I’m the success, I’m the dream
I am everything in-between

I’m the effort, I’m the rule
I’m the reason, I’m the fool
I’m the hope, I’m despair
I am everywhere

Believe in me

I’m the quest, I’m the grail
I’m the win, I’m the fail
I’m the truth, I’m the lies
I’m who lives & who dies

And I love & I hate
And I watch & I wait
And I build, & I destroy
This whole world my own toy

I laugh & I cry
I give up & I try
To hold on to what I’ve got
It’s not enough I want the lot

And I beg & I steal
And I prey on what I feel
And I give & a take
Always on the make

Believe in me

I’m the hammer, I’m the nail
I’m the winner, I’m the fail
I’m the success, I’m the dream
I am everything in-between

I am honest, I’m a fake
I am always early, I am late
I am there, when I’m here
I am brave, I live in fear

You know just who I am
I just do what I can
You know who I am
I’m no god I’m just a man

A man like you………………………………………………
