1. THE IDES OF MARCH

(Instrumental)


2. WRATHCHILD

I was born into a scene
Of angriness and greed
Of dominance and persecution

My mother was a queen
My dad I've never seen
I was never meant to be

[Chorus #1]
Now I spend my time looking all around
For a man that's nowhere to be found
Until I find him, I'm never gonna stop searching
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel round

[Chorus #2]
'Cause I'm a wrathchild
Well, I'm a wrathchild
Yeah, I'm a wrathchild
I'm coming to get you, oh yeah, yeah !

Some say I shouldn't matter
Ain't nothing gonna alter
The course of my destination

But I know I've gotta find
Some serious peace of mind
Or I know I'll just go crazy

[Chorus #1]

[Chorus #2]


3. MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE

I remember it as plain as day although it happened in the dark of the night
I was strolling through the streets of Paris and it was cold, it was starting to rain
And then I heard a piercing scream and I rush to the scene of the crime
But all I found was the butchered remains of two girls lay side by side

Murders in the rue Morgue, someone call the gendarmes
Murders in the rue Morgue, run before the killers go free

There's some people coming down the street, at last there's someone heard my call
I can't understand why they're pointing at me, I never done nothing at all
But I must have got some blood on my hands because everyone's shouting at me
I can't speak french so I couldn't explain and like a fool I started running away

Murders in the rue Morgue, someone call the gendarmes
Murders in the rue Morgue, am I ever gonna be free ?

And now I've gotta get away from the arms of the law, all France is looking for me
I've gotta find my way across the border for sure down the South to Italy

Murders in the rue Morgue, running from the gendarmes
Murders in the rue Morgue, I'm never going home

Well, I made it to the border at last but I can't erase the scene from my mind
Anytime somebody stares at me, well I just start running blind
Well, I've moving through the shadows at night, away from the staring eyes
Any day they'll be looking for me 'cause I know I show the sign of...

Murders in the rue Morgue, running from the gendarmes
Murders in the rue Morgue, running from the arms of the law

Murders in the rue Morgue, running from the gendarmes
Murders in the rue Morgue, am I ever gonna be free ?

It tool so long and I'm getting so tired, I'm running out of places to hide
Should I return to the scene of the crime where the two young victims died
If I could go to somebody for help, I'd get me out of trouble for sure
But I know that it's on my mind, that my doctor said I've done it before

Murders in the rue Morgue, they're never gonna find me
Murders in the rue Morgue, I'm never going home


4. ANOTHER LIFE

As I lay here lying on my bed, sweat voices come into my head
Oh, what it is ? I wanna know... Please won't you tell me it's got to go
There's a feeling that's inside me, telling me to get away
But I'm so tired of living, I might as well end today

(all the song played 3 times)


5. INNOCENT EXILE

My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion 'cause I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began

My life is so empty, nothing to live for
My mind is all confusion 'cause I defied the law
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran
I never had no trouble before this all began

I'm running away, I've nowhere to go
I'm lost and tired and I just don't know, yeah !
They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true
They're just trying to frame me, and all because of you, yeah !

Long I'm running...


6. GENGHIS KHAN

(Instrumental)


7. KILLERS

You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night
I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me

I can't see what a knife's meant to be
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike

The death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light !
I have found you and no there is no place to run
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me, what have I done ?

Oh, yeah ! I've done it...

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs

Oh, look out ! I'm coming for you...


8. PRODIGAL SON

Listen to me Lamia, listen to what I've got to say
I've got these feelings and they won't go away
I've got these fears inside that'll bring me to my knees
Oh, help me Lamia or I'm sure I'll die, oh please...

I feel unsettled, now I know that I've done wrong
I've messed around with mystic things and magic for far too long
I feel I'm being paid with this nightmare inside me
The devil's got a hold on my soul and he won't let me be

I'm on my knees, oh help me please
I'm on my knees, help me please

Oh Lamia, please try to help me
The devil's got a hold on my soul and he won't let me be
Lamia, I've got this curse, I'm turning to bad
The devil's got a hold on my soul and it's driving me mad, oh...

Oh Lamia, please try to help me
The devil's got a hold on my soul and he won't let me be
Lamia, I've got this curse, I'm turning to bad
The devil's got a hold on my soul and it's driving me mad, oh...


9. PURGATORY

Thinking of an age old dream
Places I've never seen
Fantasies lived times before
I split my brain, melt through the floor

Over clouds my minds will fly
Forever now I can't think why
My body tries to live my soul
Or is it me, I just don't know

Memories rising from the past
The future's shadow overcast
Something's clutching at my head
Through the darkness I'll be led

Oh, another time, another place
Oh, another smile, another face
When you see me floating up beside you
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you

Please take me away, take me away, so far away (x3)

(all the song played 2 times)


10. TWILIGHT ZONE

She lays in bed at night and that is when I make my call
But when she stares at me, she can't see nothing at all
Because, you see, I can't take no shape or form
It's been three long years since I've been gone

I can't get used to purgatory, you know it really makes me cry
I'll never know the reason why I had to go

Oh, oh, I'm crying
Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me ?
Ah, ah, ah, can't you see me ?

I'm looking forward to her spirit coming over to me
I feel so tempted to bring her over to see
Just what it's like to be hanging to the other side
I feel so lonely, it's a long time since I died

I try to show her that she's never gonna be alone
Because my spirit is imprisoned in the twilight zone

Oh, oh, I'm crying
Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you hear me ?
Ah, ah, ah, can't you see me ?


11. DRIFTER

Walk away !

Look out now, baby won't you take me away
Sittin' here it's gonna be a new day
Gotta get my song and I can't go wrong
Gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song

What you feeling when you hold me tight
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight
Gonna get to feeling so secure
Listen child, don't you see there's a cure

[Chorus]
Anywhere got to get you away
Feels so good, think it's gonna be a new day
I'm gonna get my song 'till I can't go on
I'm gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song

What you feeling when you hold me tight
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight
Gonna get to feeling so secure
Listen child, don't you see there's a cure

[Chorus]

Gotta sing my song, yeah !
And it won't take long
I'm gotta sing my song, yeah !
And won't you sing it along ?

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along (x4)

'Cause i'm a drifter drifting you...
