Track Name: Safe Inside
Holy wars and hurricanes
Rising waters and acid rain
Detonation to explode
Empires crumble as this world corrodes
Unseen powers cast reign of fear
Manipulation to keep us near
Self-destruction of a human race
Nowhere left now to hide or escape

From this cave I dwell,
I look down on the world outside
Safe inside this sheltered cage
The truth fades out of sight
Deep inside the darkened room
I watch the world go by
Never will it be the same

From this cave I dwell,
I look down on the world outside
Safe inside this sheltered cage
I shut it out and hide
Deep inside my darkened room
I watch the world go by
Never to return to face the decay and twisted lies
Track Name: Dark City
The frozen moon guides my path ahead
Through misty side streets lit in neon red
Casting shadows from a darker past
A long lost soul in the emptiness

A winter dawn clears a hazy mind
The ghosts that haunted remain inside
The past created who I am today
But it stays behind in the dark city

Running blind, a thousand miles away
With painful tears and nothing left to say
Can you hear me?!
Reaching out for a cleaner air to breathe
Face the future now the smog has cleared

A winter dawn clears a hazy mind
The ghosts that haunted remain inside
The past created who I am today
But it stays behind in the dark city
Track Name: Attica Rising
Everyday the Rage grows stronger
Strong emotions consume all of us inside
Everyday one step closer
Hear the cries and the cheers
just before they come into sight

Every night playing chase with the spotlight
Feel the sweat from the heat
building up inside these walls
Every night sirens wail in the distance
Now it’s time to reclaim, time to break out
and take it all

Hey! Hey!
ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!

Everyday the Rage grows stronger
Breaking free of the chains and
breaking down these walls
One more day, feel the sense of elation
Need the fix, to carry on and take it all and more

ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!
Track Name: Chance To Breathe
Stick another pin, cast another stone
Watch me bleed within, crack the fragile bone

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Waiting for the chance to breathe
I’m watching, I’m watching
Where this path will lead

Feed the bitter heart, ignite the charred remains
From a heartache past, time to make the change

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Waiting for the chance to breathe
I’m watching, I’m watching
Where this life will lead
Track Name: In My Dreams
In my dreams, the hand in flames
points to the only one to blame
This blackened heart will never clear
the burning guilt I’ll always feel

A window burst, explode the night
Naked flames licked up the sky
An inferno mass which I once knew
I couldn’t help them to break through

Now left alone, I hold the flame
And carry on the family name
With embers left and distant screams
The torment begins in my dreams

As time goes on fear takes control
The twisted truth consumes my soul
The guilt I keep deep inside
Feeds a desire to say goodbye

Time won’t heal, relieve the pain
I’ll always hold myself to blame
The time is near to cut the ties
As I release the dreams for my demise

Dead in my dreams
Track Name: No More Tomorrow
Another brother’s gone
But the respect still remains
Although we never met
It’s like we knew him just the same
Black-Tooth cowboy from hell
A hero to us all
Still one of us but so much more
In spirit and soul

No more tomorrow
Shadows of sorrow
Empty and hollow
No more tomorrow

Whisky tears fall to the ground
As I listen to his song
All we are and what we’d give
For one more blast, one more time

Deep inside it gives me strength
To live it all and live it well
Inspiration, raise a glass
He’s the dude we’ll never forget

No more tomorrow
Shadows of sorrow
Empty and hollow
No more tomorrow
Track Name: First Life
Through the smoke of the dance floor
I found you
In the midst of the mosh-pit orgy
with your hair ablaze
A golden glow in the neon shadows
You locked me in with chains
Through life together

Through the dark, winding roads
I took you
Entwined together came a premonition
I saw it in your eyes
Saw an old man with his dear old lady
Looked like you and I

Time to say goodbye,
Guess we’ll never know
A life, a love
Through life together
A life together
A love remembered
Track Name: Technofear
No-one speaks anymore
Or needs to leave their own front door
Communication electronique
Live your life through a computer screen

Automated everything
Let the PC suck you in
Order pizza with remote control
Get your kicks off with a virtual whore

Techno-Fear in electro-age
Trapped inside the motherboard cage
A billion fingers connected to a USB port
Delete the memory and save your soul
Track Name: State of New Control
Close your eyes and shut out the light
Hidden thoughts inside your mind
Witness to the birth of a new control
Bring the end of the world as we know

There’s no freedom anymore
Follow the leader, doing as we’re told

For all we lived and lost
Through all the fear and hope
Crushed down by a state of new control
With anger in our hearts
And vengeance on our mind
All resist the state of new control

Watch the skies and suspect the lies
And question all the words you hear
They take their place as we move underground
Running like rats hoping not to be found
Track Name: Overkill [*Motorhead cover]
Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud
So good I can't believe it screaming with the crowd
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Overkill, Overkill, Overkill

On your feet you feel the beat, it goes straight to your spine
Shake your head you must be dead if it don't make you fly
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Overkill, Overkill, Overkill

Know your body's made to move, you feel it in your guts
Rock 'n' roll ain't worth the name if it don't make you strut,
Don't sweat it, get it back to you
Overkill, Overkill, Overkill
