1. RIOT

I sent your job to a foreign land,
Baby I got mine, don't you understand?
I took your home, your car, I can afford to buy it,
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

I sent your sons and your daughters to the desert sands,
Give 'em all to me, you're an American!
They get a flag and a box, and I will surely supply it,
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

And I told you, live in fear 'til you call my name.
Then I sold you and you're still playing my game....

What's it gonna take - to make you riot?
What's it gonna take?

Do you fear your God or your brother man?
No god I know would ever take your land.
Thank your God for your gun? Now it's time to try it -
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

Look to the east, there's a brand new flame,
The children of Allah put us all to shame.
They're tired of the lies and cannot stay quiet,
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

Yeah I told you, live in fear 'til you call my name.
Then I sold you and you're still playing my game....

What's it gonna take - to make you riot?
What's it gonna take?

You forget your rights, and I forget your name
You're gonna keep on payin' cause you're all the same.
This is your master' voice, don’t you dare defy it.
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

Swing to the right, baby all the way,
I'll be dancin' with the Devil on the judgement day.
I sold my soul, to any fool who'd buy it.
What's it gonna take to make you riot?

And I told you, live in fear 'til you call my name.
Then I sold you and you're still playing my game....


2. STILL YOUR MAN

All is forgotten or stolen or sold,
All that remains is a boy growing old.
A memory of something without a name,
A thousand excuses for staying the same.

Where is the fire that raged in your soul?
Buried now in a deep dark hole,
Forgotten like your story and your name.

Hey, Johnny, brother take my hand
I remember, I am still your man.
Another round and don't say when,
'Til we hit the ground and ride again,
Nothing's changed and nothing stays the same.

Yeah here is your box full of lightning and dreams,
Here's to the thunder, remember the screams.
A thousand times twenty, they call your name,
No one's forgotten, they carry the flame.

Waiting for someone to bring us all home
A Jack in black leather, a King in chrome,
To say the word and start it all again.

Hey, Johnny, brother take my hand,
I remember, I am still your man.
Another round and don't say when,
'Til we hit the ground and ride again,
Nothing's changed and nothing stays the same.

We kept all the pictures of good times and bad,
You drove us all crazy, the world drove you mad.
I hear it inside you, a gathering scream,
A fire eternal a love that's supreme.

Would you be king again just for a day,
We live but once, or so they say,
And then we never pass this way again.

Hey, Johnny, brother take my hand,
I remember, I am still your man.
We're waiting, all, we still believe,
Do you have one ace left up your sleeve?
Nothing's changed and nothing stays the same.


3. CRAWLING

Burn the night to fear the day.
Daylight comes and burns it all away
Just like the ocean haze,
So the last one thousand days.

Speak to God, I kneel and pray,
No reply, don't know that I am
Weaker, stronger, cannot say,
But older by a thousand days.

Crawling - keeps me - from falling...

Moving slow I make my way,
Another floor another day.
Never knowing what to blame,
From down here y'all look the same.

Pray the prayer to pass the time,
No time for reason, only rhyme
Will fill the page and light the light,
So the last one thousand nights.

Once upon a midnight clear
Miles of highway disappeared
Into the sky near Gemini,
If you're seeing double, close one eye.

Crawling - keeps me - from falling...

I have been there once before,
But the band played out of tune,
And I did not have a word to tell a story,
'Til you saved me with a love so rare
As water on the Moon,
And I'm sorry, I'm sorry, so sorry...

I have been there once before,
But the music would not play,
Though I had a song and then I had a story.
Will you save me when the sun delivers
All another day,
And I’m sorry, I’m sorry...


4. WINGS ARE FOR ANGELS

If I leave I'll be dead by morning,
If I stay it's all the same.
Insane from a thousand sorrows,
What's my name again? I don't know...

Past the graves of a million dreams,
Swallow all & fade away.
What I do or I don't it seems,
Damned all anyway, damned to hell.

They called me a fool for my choice of career.
I'm the winds of war that will blow you away,
Sure as I'm standing here.

Wings are for angels, wings are for angels.

Try to breathe in this ancient wonder,
Golden days of history.
On spinning blades I'm the god of thunder.
What's my name again? That will do...

Flyboys, they get all the glory,
Working men get what remains.
Lost my soul when I sold my story.
Here I go again, yes I know...

They called me a fool for my choice of career.
I'm the winds of war that will blow you away,
Sure as I'm standing here.

Wings are for angels, wings are for angels.

Kill your brother if Allah tells you,
I will kill what else remains,
For the money my country gave me.
What's my name again - now you know!

Once more to the fields of glory,
Damn the clouds & burn the sky.
Lost my soul when I sold my story.
Here we go again, yes I know...

I lost all my friends and I lost all my fear.
Nothing left to die for, they told me today,
I’m staying another year...


5. FALL BEFORE ME

Take this sword from out my hand,
Return me to the motherland.
Day is night and duty done,
Now bear me 'cross the river.

Sands surrounds us, let it pass,
A storm within an hourglass.
We rise and fall, time takes it all,
We stand and we deliver.

Now I stand before you,
Riven by the choice I've made,
And driven by the voice I prayed
Would sing me home to glory.
Who among us knows the day?
Ours is but to pass this way.
In brotherhood we understood,
This battlefield my story.

Should I fall before you, I will feel no shame.
It is the price of war in blood and in flame.
Should you fall beside me, I will do the same,
Breathe you deep inside me, and carry your name.

Thrones, Dominions guide my way,
Deliver me another day.
Cloak me now in righteousness,
Your champion stands alone.

Day of mourning, day of wrath,
All fulfill the prophets path,
Death is struck, all nature quakes
Oh, Father take me home.

Now I stand before you,
Riven by the choice I've made,
And driven by the voice I prayed
Would sing me home to glory.
Who among us knows the day?
Ours is but to pass this way.
In brotherhood we understood,
This battlefield my story.


6. SINS OF THE FATHER

I've been waiting, always waiting, I've been waiting,
Can you hear me?
Meditating, meditating, tired of waiting,
Don't you know, I've been drinking for days,
Got the stagger to show it, the weekend is here
And I'm ready...
Aspirations are high but the funds are low,
Gotta keep it up 'til I'm steady.

One for crying, one for dying, tired of trying,
Gonna be just....
I've been fearing, disappearing,
Tired of hearing, here we go,
Now I'm truly inspired and totally flying,
I'm a master of everything, I ain't even trying.

Sins of the father will shine on your darkest days.
Why even bother with life, I know.
Or if you'd rather, open this amber vial,
How many hours 'til life, I know...

I know, I know, the bottle tells me so,
I know, I know, the bottle tells me so,
I know, I know...

Imitating disintegrating is stimulating,
I'm alive!
Power steering disappearing, hard of hearing,
Just drive -
If you got no future, you got no friends,
You got no choice you gotta rise again.

Sins of the father will shine on your darkest days.
Why even bother with life, I know.
Or if you'd rather, open this amber vial,
How many hours 'til life, I know...

I know, I know, the bottle tells me so,
I know, I know, the bottle tells me so,
I know, I know...


7. MAJESTICA

[Instrumental]



8. IMMORTAL SOUL

Young blood, you're so impatient
For the feast of good & evil.
The time will come and we'll all begin.
Didn't you think it just a bit baroque,
Or maybe it's mediaeval,
We're breaking bones instead of bread within.
Didn't I say it would be different,
Your afterlife, the sequel.
This festival of carnage feeds on
Large amounts of mortal sin.

Now here's a thought while you're
Assuming the position;
Will Jesus raise you on the final day?
Didn't you think there'd be a price to pay
For such a grand transition?
This fellowship of ours depends on
Centuries of living prey.

One more immortal soul,
Draw closer to the fire.
One more companion in murder eternally.

Now here's the part where we
Descend into perdition,
Far from the world of your imagining.
Didn't you think there would be others
In this rarefied condition?
You want to call yourself a demon,
Please address me as the demon king...

One more immortal soul
Draw closer to the fire
One more companion in murder eternally.
One thousand years of song
With this unholy choir.
One fallen angel behaving infernally.

The only love that we have to give
Will still your heart like a cemetery.
Forever lost to forever live,
Be still forever, love...

One more immortal soul...


9. INSANITY

Insanity, you light up the world for me...

With a song in my heart and a gun in my hand,
Waiting for you,
With this secret I keep,
Where the sea meets the land,
Waiting for you all...

Waiting for the night to begin...
Almost in my sight, this fragrant wind.
The lifeless on parade...

Insanity, return to me,
I'm living in a fever dream.
I burn for you, you scream for me,
There's no one I would rather be right now.

Do you breathe like a man,
Is your life not your own?
Waiting for you.
Do you hunger for flesh,
Where it lives on the bone?
Waiting for you all...

Waiting for the night to begin, yeah, yeah.
Almost in my sight, this fragrant wind,
The lifeless on parade...

Insanity, return to me,
I'm living in a fever dream.
I burn for you, you scream for me,
There's no one else I'd rather be right now.

Insanity, you light up the world for me.
We rage and we kill, and we call it free will,
We believe in it still.

Insanity, you bring out the man in me.
This demon within, it's evil & sin,
Right under your skin.

Insanity, we all are the same, you see.
We fight and we fall, and never recall,
Our history is all insanity.


10. WHISKEY MAN

Woke up behind the steering wheel,
Wonder if I've gone too far...
Quick shiver, cross against the light,
A curse from a cab in a strange tongue.
Leave my wheels, better let them rest.
The keys like ice in my shaking hands,
From the neon haze to the bar stool maze,
The nightlife, it sure is a strange one...

It's a son of a bitch, when I get that itch,
And here it comes again...

Please call me Whiskey Man,
When the bottle's in my hand.
Hello, it's Whiskey Man!
Another shot at my command.

Feel old but you say I don't look it, yet.
Work so hard trying to hide the miles.
A seekers path, I'm on the heels of glory.
All paths of glory only lead to the grave.
Sweet glory's dancing on yours,
She's always one step ahead.
Well I know that, I'm still ridin' anyway,
A mind is a terrible thing to save...

It's a son of a bitch, when I get that itch,
And here it comes again...

Please call me Whiskey Man,
When the bottle's in my hand.
Hello, it's Whiskey Man!
Another shot at my command.

It was a fine idea long ago, in a time of fine ideas,
When the August night would last into forever.
So we broke the glass and hit the gas
While the Summer filled the trees.
In the day, we two, we were breaking through,
And not dying by degrees.

Like I'm trying to say, wash it all away,
And here I go again...


11. BELIEVE

Running hard from defeat to disaster
I fear no god and I serve no master now.

Pale as skywriting under the moon,
You shine so bright, but the time would not allow...

We were born to live - we were born to fly,
And fly we did, did we ever...
You were born to dance, you were born to fly,
And fly you did, did you ever...

For this to be, it was no to be,
Believed in you, believe in me.

To live in darkness and claim to see,
Believed in you, believe in me.

Ah, no,
This cannot be so...

Running hard from eternal December,
You can't regret what you don't remember now.
I will not stand by your grave side and weep,
You are not there and you do not sleep, I know.

We were born to fly straight into the wall,
And we broke on through to forever.
In the midnight sun we received it all,
But to darkness run, we would never.

For this to be, it was no to be,
Believed in you, believe in me.

To live in darkness and claim to see,
Believed in you, believe in me.

Ah, no,
This cannot be so...

I have run to the land of setting sun.
I for one still believe.
Not for none watch the whole thing come undone,
Nothing left but to grieve

I can wait for the tide to close the gate.
I can wait here for years.
Far too late we collide and then we wait,
Ashes anger and tears.

For this to be, it was no to be,
Believed in you, believe in me.

To live in darkness and claim to see,
Believed in you, believe in me.

Ah, no,
This cannot be so...


12. ECHOES

Disposable creatures defiling the night,
Receive at my hand the invisible light.
This river of faces, this garden of graves,
It flows and it grows when this boy misbehaves.

Do you hear that song? Now it won't be long,
Until we dance the dance
And rid ourselves of everyone.

Yeah, when I hear that sound,
I'm gonna take you down,
To where the river flows and I tend to the garden
Where nothing grows.

Echoes on the wind,
Faces reflected in mirrored eyes,
Another soul I might have been.
Strangers to me now,
Far from this vision of love...

Emerging from shadows, come out of the rain,
Abandon your body and give me your pain.

Do you hear that song? Now it won't be long,
Until we dance the dance
And rid ourselves of everyone.

When I hear that sound, I'm gonna take you down,
To where the river flows and I tend to the garden
Where nothing grows.

Echoes on the wind...

Long ago, just a boy who knew that love is
Complicated when your lovers die.
Just a boy who needed love...
