1. DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

(Instrumental)


2. DIGITAL RAIN

[Dan Swanö]
Something is not right here
Is racking my mind
It's all around me, I feel it inside
Like I'm locked in some prison
And my world is a lie
Chills my emotion, blinding in my eyes

[Damian Wilson]
Let go of your anger, empty your mind
Return to your senses, accept what you find
You are here for a reason
Cut through these lies
Lives are in danger, open up your eyes!

[Russell Allen]
Reach for the answer - digital rain
Take your chances and taste the pain

[Russell Allen & Floor Jansen]
Open up your mind
Don't trust your senses
You have been blind - digital rain

[Russell Allen]
Awaken the sleeper - digital rain
Dig down deeper and break the chain

[Russell Allen & Floor Jansen]
Let the truth flood in
Tear down your fences
The search begins - digital rain

[Dan Swanö]
I've entered the real world, I know what to do
The search is over, the prediction is true

[Damian Wilson]
Many millions of people exploited like slaves
But you can release them
From their digital graves

[Damian Wilson]
Let go of your anger
Empty your mind
Return to your senses
Accept what you find
You are here for a reason

[Russell Allen]
Open up your mind

[Damian Wilson]
Cut through these lies

[Russell Allen]
Don't trust your senses

[Damian Wilson]
Lives are in danger

[Russell Allen]
You have been blind

[Damian Wilson]
Open up your eyes

[Russell Allen]
Digital rain

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
I've entered the real world

[Russell Allen]
Awaken the sleeper

[Damian Wilson]
I know what to do

[Russell Allen]
Digital rain

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
The search is over

[Russell Allen]
Dig down deeper

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
The prediction is true

[Russell Allen]
And break the chain

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
Many millions of people

[Russell Allen & Floor Jansen]
Let the truth flood in

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
Exploited like slaves

[Russell Allen & Floor Jansen]
Tear down your fences

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
Can release them

[Russell Allen & Floor Jansen]
The search begins

[Damian Wilson & Dan Swanö]
From their digital graves

[Russell Allen]
DIGITAL RAIN!


3. EARTH THAT WAS

[Damian Wilson]
Mother Earth couldn't take no more
Sucked dry by humanity
In the end she lost a fight
She was never going to win

[Dan Swanö]
We set out for distant shores
Far across our galaxy
We're taking flight into the night
To the planets on the rim

[Chorus]
[Russel Allen & Floor Jansen]
A fire in the darkness
Far away from the Earth that Was
A quest for freedom in the "Verse
Seeking refuge from the earth
A fire in the darkness
A bright light on the edge of space
A desperate need to find our place
In the emptiness of space

[Damian Wilson]
Out here on the fringe of space
The outskirts of society
We're suffering the aftermath
Of a cataclysmic war

Cast out by the human race
Nine outlaw pioneers
Making life in the outer worlds
Running from the law

[Chorus]

[Russell Allen]
I see a fire in the darkness
A ray of hope in a black forbidding night
I see a fire in the darkness
A spark of life in a cold and empty sky

[Chorus](x2)


4. VICTIM OF THE MODERN AGE

[Russell]
Prowling 'round the city slums, hungry for distraction
Lashings of violence fire me up inside
A dose of nasty, some "social interaction'
Cry out, have a laugh, never, ever holding back

[Russell]
Ripping through the countryside, dying for some danger
The sound of symphonies sends shivers up my spine
Beat up some loser, harass some random stranger
Fly high, feel no pain, I'm singing singing in the rain

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who's lost his way
[Dan Swanö]
A wandering soul led astray
[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
You're just a child consumed by rage
[Dan Swanö]
A victim of a modern age

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who had no choice
[Dan Swanö]
A mindless pawn without a voice

[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
A restless mind trapped in this cage
[Floor Jansen]
A victim of a modern age

[Russell]
I am not an evil man, I swear to you, my brothers
I've learned my lesson now, I have changed my ways
I was merely blinded by the treachery of others
Hell yeah, now I am sure, I survived, I am cured!

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who's lost his way
[Dan Swanö]
A wandering soul led astray
[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
You're just a child consumed by rage
[Dan Swanö]
A victim of a modern age

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who had no choice
[Dan Swanö]
A mindless pawn without a voice
[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
A restless mind trapped in this cage
[Floor Jansen]
A victim of a modern age

[Dan Swanö]
Violence makes violence

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who's lost his way
[Dan Swanö]
A wandering soul led astray
[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
You're just a child consumed by rage
[Dan Swanö]
A victim of a modern age

[Damian WIlson]
You're just a child who had no choice
[Dan Swanö]
A mindless pawn without a voice
[Floor Jansen]
But we all know what's right for you!
[Damian and Dan]
A restless mind trapped in this cage
[Floor Jansen]
A victim of a modern age

[Russell]
I am not an evil man
I swear to you, my brothers
I'm still singing in the rain
And I'm singing in the rain


5. HUMAN SEE, HUMAN DO

[Dan Swanö]
Where do you come from, where is your tribe?
You should not be here, you can't be alive
A vicious killer, you'll never be tamed
You belong in this cage

[Damian Wilson]
Why do you fear me, what have I done?
I mean no harm, never hurt anyone
I'm not a liar, what proof do you need?
How can I make you believe?

[Russell Allen]
Drive him back, he must be the last
From beyond the zone
Save our future, bury our past
It must never be known

[Floor Jansen]
Beware the beast, there's danger in his eyes
I see the truth slipping through
Beware the beast, don't believe his lies
Human see, human do

[Dan Swanö]
Your proof is empty, conjecture at best
You're not superior, we're not impressed
Go find your fate, the lot of mankind
You won't like what you find

[Damian Wilson]
Your scrolls are lying, man was here first
We are superior, just like on earth
You know the secret, why can't you share?
Tell me why you're so scared!

[Russell Allen]
Drive him back, he must be the last
From beyond the zone
Save our future, bury our past
It must never be known

[Floor Jansen]
Beware the beast, there's danger in his eyes
I see the truth slipping through
Beware the beast, don't believe his lies
Human see, human do

[Dan Swanö]
See no evil
Hear no evil
Speak no evil
Do no evil

[Russell Allen]
Drive him back, he must be the last
From beyond the zone
Save our future, bury our past
It must never be known

[Floor Jansen]
Beware the beast, there's danger in his eyes
I see the truth slipping through
Beware the beast, don't believe his lies
Human see, human do


6. 24 HOURS

[Damian Wilson]
A crime-ridden city
Confined within these walls
A place without pity
A place of sin...

No rules apply here
Among this desperate crowd
Once you go in
You are never coming out

[Chorus]
[Russell Allen]
You've got 24 hours
To change the course of history
Just 24 hours, your time is running out!
You've got 24 hours
To trace our man and set him free
Our very last chance
Our fate is in your hands!

[Damian Wilson]
You're trapped on this island
Your life ticking away
This hotbed of violence
Could be your grave...

You're on your own here
No one to save your skin
You better give up
’Cause there is no way you can win

[Chorus]

[Dan Swanö]
Too many died for an empty cause
Too many died all in vain
Too many died for your senseless laws
Count me out, I will never be a part of this game

[Floor Jansen]
Too many died for an empty cause
Too many died all in vain
Too many died for your senseless laws
Count me out, I will never be a part of this game

[Damian Wilson]
A crime-ridden city
Confined within these walls
A place without pity
A place of sin...

No rules apply here
Among this desperate crowd
Once you go in
You are never coming out

[Chorus]

[Floor Jansen]
Too many died for an empty cause
Too many died all in vain
Too many died for your senseless laws
Count me out, I will never be a part of this game


7. CASSANDRA COMPLEX

[Russell Allen]
You are a beautiful woman in a beautiful world
But your world is gonna die
I have seen the human race
Drop dead in the blink of an eye

[Floor Jansen]
You created this dream out of bits and pieces
Filed away in your mind
You're caught inside a fantasy
But we'll find the truth inside

[Russell Allen]
You gotta hear me out, though you wouldn't understand
I came back to the past
I have come to save our world
Time's up, so we better move fast

[Floor Jansen]
I want to help you deal with the rage you feel
It's still not too late
You created your own world
But it's starting to disintegrate!

[Chorus]
[Damian Wilson]
Cassandra complex, everlasting scream
We can change the future but we can't change the past
Cassandra complex, ever-changing dream
We can shape the present but we can't make it last

[Russell Allen]
I think you may be right, I'm insane after all
This is all in my mind
I just want to stay here with you
Leave the bad dream behind

[Floor Jansen]
No, I remember you now, guess I've always known
Yes, it was me in your dream
I won't accept that we cannot change
The dark future you have seen!

[Chorus]

[Dan Swanö]
The planet is dying, pollution of sea and air
The people denying the death of the atmosphere
The planet is crying, the rape of ecology
The people relying on the rise of technology
And now they have to die!

[Chorus]


8. IT’S ALIVE, SHE’S ALIVE, WE’RE ALIVE

[Dan Swanö]
Man is declining, man is dying out
Generation of despair
Man has no future, man is crying out
Echoes in the empty air

[Russell Allen]
Mother Nature's striking back, protecting her domain
The last generation fades away
[Floor Jansen]
We're the generation of despair
[Damian Wilson]
But we must not give up hope, for man can be revived
It's alive, she's alive, we're alive!

[Dan Swanö]
Man surrenders, man is giving in
Our world is breaking down
Man has no tomorrow, man has died within
This is our final hour

[Russell Allen]
Mother Nature's changing course, preserving her own home
The last generation's on its own
[Floor Jansen]
We're the generation of despair
[Damian Wilson]
But we can't give in to failure, man can still survive
It's alive, she's alive, we're alive!


9. IT ALL ENDS HERE

[Dan Swanö]
Lies - fictitious dreams - false illusions
[Russell Allen]
Living life with nothing to gain
[Dan Swanö]
Eyes - synthetic tears - hollow visions
[Russell Allen]
Moments lost, like tears in the rain
[Dan Swanö]
Life - a vacuous truth - a simulation
[Russell Allen]
Watching dreams break down and decay
[Dan Swanö]
Survive - a desperate hope - strange desires
[Russell Allen]
Can't give up, there must be a way

[Floor Jansen]
I think therefore I am
Am I more human than a man?
I think therefore I am
But will they ever understand?

[Dan Swanö]
Pain - living in fear - no compassion
[Russell Allen]
Facing death with nothing to lose
[Dan Swanö]
Sustain - future-less world - cold deception
[Russell Allen]
No way out, whatever we do
[Dan Swanö]
Why? - meaningless words - empty promises
[Russell Allen]
Is this real or this is a lie?
[Dan Swanö]
Deny - darkening skies - twisted emotions
[Russell Allen]
Will I dream, or will I just die?

[Damian Wilson]
Four years slipped by too fast
Four years, without a past
And a future we'll never know
Four years is all we had
Four years, no second chance
There is nowhere left to go

[Dan Swanö]
Four years slipped by too fast
Four years, without a past
And a future we'll never know
Four years is all we had
Four years, no second chance
There is nowhere left to go

[Russell Allen]
Living a life with nothing left to gain
Moments are lost, like tears in the rain
Watching my dreams break down and decay
I can't give up, there must be a way
Facing death with nothing to lose
No way out, no matter what we try to do
Is this real or this is a lie?
Will I dream, or will I just die?

[Floor Jansen]
I think therefore I am
Am I more human than a man?
I think therefore I am
But will they ever understand?

[Damian Wilson]
Four years, we were almost there
[Russell Allen]
Four years, no time to spare
[Floor Jansen]
Four years, beyond repair
[Damian & Russell:]
Is it wrong? Does anyone care?

[Damian Wilson]
Four years of living in fear
[Russell Allen]
Four years, death is near
[Floor Jansen]
Four years disappeared
[Damian and Russell]
Can't believe it all ends here

[All]
Four years, we were almost there
Four years, no time to spare
Four years, beyond repair
Is it wrong? Does anyone care?
Four years of living in fear
Four years, death is near
Four years disappeared
Can't believe it all ends here
