1. Break Your Chains

I'm rising sails to leave my father's land
No longer waiting for the tide
It took a while to try and understand
How do I want to live my life:
You live it or lie it - anyway you want.
I cross the ocean to another side to see the world you've never seen
I'm walking straight into the glowing light feeling as twice the man I've ever been
You live it or lie it - no reason to deny it.
Stop dreaming, start living...
All you have to do is break your chains.
Uncounted wonders no one's seen before...
I've watched them rise and dissapear
It could've been you - just open up the door
And take that first step to overcome you fear.

2. Not My Kind

Time is running out, you're left behind
Can't you see - you're not my kind?
Somebody's gain's built on somebody's loss -
Friendship of ourswas a beautiful ghost
Better run home - put a hell of a race -
Get yourself a pretty, brand new face
You're not my kind.
Tell me your dream and I'll tell you your soul.
Higher we climb? Even harder we fall
Son of a bitch keeps on hangin' around -
Stay away or I'll rip your heart out.
Hustling left and right - so this is your kind?
Time is running out, just let it go
Search your heart and you will find
Seeds of hate and envy, left to grow. Can't you see - you're not my kind?
Year after year, all those battles we've fought...
Hard to believe - but you've got yourself caught
Nowhere to hide, now you're under attack -
Nice lil'load and it broke your back
Scream into the night - so this is your kind?

4. Never Give Up

It's over now... I feel my sadness fades away
Wonder how we could survive and take it through another day?
I'd say chances are few - but they are out there,
Start something new - right now and right here
Look, I'm telling you...
We'll never give up, we'll never give in
Wherever this road's gonna lead us
We'll never give up, we're playin' to win
And heading right up to the top
We'll never give up, we'll never retreat
Whatever out there's gonna hit us
We'll never give up, we'll land on our feet
We'll make it come right in the end -
We'll never give up.
Seconds fly as if the're bullets. Could it be
Worth a try to cut them loose and let some peace come sown on me?
I see chances are few but the are out there,
Waiting for you to decide
To start something new - right now and right here -
To change your life tonight.

5. Seven Days

Seven days to build this "perfect" world,
So beautifully unfolded...
Fat baby on your lap.
Seven signs before you'd lose your cool,
Obnoxious, pompous fool?
I'd say you're full of crap.
So you're still selling that Paradise skam?..
While keeping a hell of a poker face.
Well, nothing's really changing
At all, so I'll be damned, boy:
Thank you for those seven priceless days.

Please don't be a stranger, look inside my life.
Full of it? As you are... with a touch of pride
Cut me wide, wide open, rip me up inside...
What's the matter? Busy? Blinded by the light?

Zooming in - the shores of Paradise...
Those billboards're - full of lies -
Unchaining gates of hell.
Tears of joy on salesman's pretty face...
He's screwing us with grace -
I hope I'll live to tell
Hell or heaven - the same merry-go-round.
Pieces of one puzzle - cut'n'paste.
Tell me, is this really
The best way which you've found
While sitting on that holy ground,
Wearing that shiny, golden crown
For seven unforgettable days?
Seven deadly sins - those remarkable days...

7. Kiss Of Faith

Only dead have seen the end of war...
Knowing that - I fell a bit better
When I do remember what's happened before... oh well.
Moving on to the heart of the matter
Father always told me 'bout men and mice,
Being not afraid to take chances
Well, he said enough 'coz by the time he got iced
I was on my way - circumstances
Led me out into the open...
Boy, reality bites.
Doesn't matter what you do -
Another crook gets rich
Doesn't mean a thing what's your calling
Living by your heart and whining
"Life is such a bitch"?
Anyway you go - you're falling to the bottom of the food chain.
When the moon comes up
And the sun goes down
I can change the whole world.
Feeling stronger
From the dead of night
To the morning light
Getting ready to challenge my faith
When you're feeling weak
And you life seems tough,
You can't wait for a break any longer...
Who can stone you cold,
Who can whip you down
If you stal a lil'kiss from your faith
Do I live as I live or do as I do?
Don't forget who told you:
"When life has no value - death has its price"
...just something I saw in my father's eyes.

8. Paper Blood

In our shop, as you can see,
You'd be a man you wanna be.
Unhappy with the way it goes?
Just buy another life.
And our prices... who can beat?
Here's royal flesh and cannot meat
You name it - my associate
Is sharpening her knife...
Please take a peek inside, tell me how it feels like
When you're spilling paper blood
In the blaze of glory
Paper blood - on the holy ground
Paper blood - neverending story...
Paper blood makes the world go round and round.
We've got it covered to the tee...
Another wife? Just take a brief:
Look at this fine selection of those bitches from the East
We're selling friends, we're selling cars,
A recent show with superstars,
A child, a war, a heart, a soul -
It's all to make you pleased... right!
Nothing is too strange (when we are in this price range)
You're wasting paper blood
In the blaze of glory
Paper blood - on the holy ground
Paper blood - neverending story...
Paper blood can buy a tiny crown
For this sad and weary clown,
So he can smile and take a look around
Across his kingdom - fake as it could be
(And what's wrong with that?)
Where tears of joy're impossible to see
(What do we need them for?)
Where heartfelt laughter's not what you will hear
(And so what?)
Enough of that, 'coz it's my biggest fear.

9. Season's Change

Images of winter gently move
Fallen, golden leaves.
Sun is hiding far behind the roof,
Knowing what it means
Days are getting shorter, I can see
Chilling tears of fall
Running down for you and leaving me
Out here in the cold
Since you left whatever I would do -
Nothing comes out right
I'm fighting through another lonely day,
Another sleepless night.
Dreaming 'bout wings to fly away
But as I was told
Brokenhearted can't, the're cursed to stay
Out here in the cold
This change of a season is over and done
Won't look for a reason... just sad that you're gone
Every single word you've ever said
Is ringing in my ears
Making me remember what I had.
This burning trail of tears
Leading me away, into the night...
Closer to my fall.
Season's changing, turning off the light
Out here in the cold
Dissapearing very slow - this line of footsteps in the snow...
Spirit of my better day's living on the edge
Be it so and let it be... 'coz as far as I can see
There's no way to escape this season's change.
