Track Name: Cassius (Versus The World)
Hey, little man I see you standing there
Your feet hold the ground
As you grow and you start to show
I know a light will follow

I don't have much but what I got is
Pockets full of bloom for you
Be steady, be ready, my shoulder’s here for you

What do you see, right now?

What do you see with your eyes open wide
Love and its debris
You're sitting on my knees
Like a flying gift of life
The wind's below your feet

The future's holding the third world war
It's juggling knives in the sun
Your hands will be found lost and using
Science fiction guns

What will you see that day?

What will you see with your eyes open wide
Hate and its debris
You're falling on your knees
As the ground opens up
And swallows up your feet

What do you see right now?

You're living for the days
When you dreams come on display
And are ready for you to take
Cause what the days have grown
Are the dreams that you have sown
Yours, yours to hold
What do you sing with the words that you own?
I wanna hear them soon
Track Name: Marylou
I knew I should have stayed
When you told me to wait outside
Why do you never listen to me
Darling?

Oh, honey I must confess
You're still the prettiest girl
Even in a blood stained dress
Oh darling

But sheriff's Webber took the shot
I watched you stumble to the ground
Stood in shock as you fell down

Marylou
All the men you've killed
Will be there waiting for you
Marylou
I will surely join you soon
Cause the simple fact is
I can’t live, Marylou

But I won't let your life
Be lost in vain
I'll rip out the bastards heart
Oh darling

I will feed him to the pigs
Take you to Saddle Creek
We'll spend our last moments together

We'll watch our final sunset
I'll smoke my last cigarette
Wipe my tears and say goodbye

I look up to the sky
See our lives flash before my eyes
Now on my knees
Feel the cold steel against my temple
And as I fall to the ground I wear a smile cause
Marylou, here I come
Track Name: Giving All The Gold
You stay home, cause you've worked too late
You don't even want to talk
You spend your nights counting the stars
Rocking back on your chair

Think twice and ask your soul
Is she really worth all the weight?
Paper cuts till you're miserable
Grabbing all that you've made

You're giving all the gold

And all the dreams that you hold
Are made of you and her getting old

She's out, lost in the city
No care in the world
Like the wind she blows
Over the top whenever she goes

She's in the arms of a younger man
Smash bang time to run honey
You've gone and broke another heart
Got yourself in another fine mess

You're giving all the gold

And all the dreams that you hold
Were made of you and her getting old
Now all your dreams they have been sold
You scratch, you dig but you won't find gold
She took everything but you
Track Name: Shadows We've Become
Crimson moon is in my sights
Warning me to turn back
I’m gonna miss your loving
Black cat struts across my path
I'm not superstitious
But I'm losing you
I must be possessed to have you in my heart
When you're leaving me

My loneliness shuts me down
I can't get you out, no

Home ain't home
Home is cold as stone
Oh Lucy has flown away
I grow weaker by the hour
I'm left holding myself
Yes I need your loving
Now we deal with no feelings
We feel through a screen
Shadows we've become

My loneliness shuts me down
And I can't get you out, no
Still there's to many days to wait
And you're so many miles away
You're so far away
My loneliness shuts me down
Cause I can't hold you close, no I can't

Shadows we've become

My loneliness shuts me down
And I can't get you out, no
Still there's to many days to wait
And you're so many miles away
You're so far away
And it's too long to wait to see your pretty face
Yes too long to wait to see your pretty face, I can’t wait
My loneliness shuts me down
Cause I can't hold you close, no I can't
Track Name: How It Blows Your Mind
You can buy the world just for joy
Flick the switch and find the pain will disappear
You drift in and out lock jaw with nervous shakes
You claim that you've understood it all

Then you’re attacked by panic as you're coming down
You trip and fall flat on your faith

And I say
You can take what you want
You can tell us what you feel
You can tell us how it blows your mind
And I say
You can fake what you want
But you can't fake love

I feel just fine straight you know
Maybe I will never see what you've seen before
I'm taking the long road but I'll learn it my way
I like my view, my view of the world from down here
Track Name: My Lady
It's simple you see I want you for me
But not for ever, that's just a dream
That I've given up a long time ago
It's a fairy tale that I just don't believe

I'm not a prince, I'm just a man
Who wants to have you just for one night
So forgive me for being direct and blunt
It's the truth straight from my heart

Oh, my Lady I will love you
For as long as we are together
I can make you no promises
That's just impossible
Cause for me that's a prison with chains and I have to be free

Like a lion that can't be tamed
Not to be trusted when put in a cage
And I know you won't believe
You still think you can tame the beast
But I know you can't, cause you are not the one

I'm not a dog, I know who I am
Not saying that I'm an angel, but I'm not that bad
I made myself clear from the beginning
It's not my fault that you didn't hear

You think I'm a pig but I beg to differ
I've got friends that make me look like a saint
And it's true I've sinned, but no more than the rest
And I hope the judge agrees

And you think I am the one
But you won't capture me
No I can't change who I am
Cause you’re not the one
Track Name: Running After Time
Time slipping through my fingers
On the dial's edge, trapped in the hands
I've tried to forget our nights
Now I see all I did was wrong

I'm running after time
You're waiting in the sun
And you say, and you say you still want me
I feel it's now or never
Should we really be together?
Do you wait, do you really wait for me?

We’ve been waiting too long, we've been waiting
I'm running after time and you're waiting in the sun
We've been waiting

Could it have been any different?
We shared our hearts and then we tore them apart
I've tried to forget our nights now I see all I did was wrong

You’re still running after me
Have you forgotten all the pain
Always waiting, you were always waiting for me
Are you sure not you’re not obsessed
Cause every time I went away
I made you wait, I made you wait for me

And you lost your mind, you lost your mind

Can you swear that you have really changed
Cause I don't want to see you like that again
You can't be mine if you keep losing your mind
Your mind, your mind

We’ve been waiting too long
We've been waiting
I'm running after time and you're waiting in the sun
And you say, and you say you still want me
We’ve been waiting too long and you say you still want me
Track Name: Dead On Time
I'm getting off my cancelled train
I'm wondering who you were
People rushing everywhere
Believing they’re always on time
Now they're stuck with the flights they missed
Selfish thoughts laying bare
Who wants to know you?
Who wants to know?
What made you decide to leave?

I hate to hear them say
We're late cause you're dead

You made it to the other side
Your feet crossed the line
Sorry you're dead on time
You did it on time

Sitting on the other train
My face holds thoughts of you
Wondering why you went off the rails
Why life for you was to blame?
Now it's too late to know you
Too late to know
Nobody wants to let themselves go
You had your reasons that took you so far
What made you decide to leave?

I hate to hear them say
We're late cause you're dead

You told your feet to cross the line
To the other side
You smashed your heart into goodbyes
Oh, you did it on time
You told your feet to cross the line
To the other side
Sorry you're dead on time

Do you haunt the planes
Or swim round the boats
Or wake them all up at night?
I'd like to hear them cry!
Track Name: Wake Up
So you cannot avoid or conceal
You cheat and you lie, want everything in sight
So I wake up, wake up, see who you are
Wake up, wake up, see what you are, see what you are

I'd like to wash, to wash your dirty mind
You're infected dark inside
Your make-up, make-up won't save your lies
Why don't you wake up, why?

You don't listen to a word
I'm just talking to myself
I thought I was on to a good thing
Then you fuckin' disappeared
And you left me here dancing on my own
I better wake up and see the light
See what you are

Cut it out and stop treating my like a cunt
I'm still here watching all these circus freaks
You push me back confusing me some more
But I refuse to be abused, you whore
That's what you are
Track Name: Night & Day
I'm feeling like I am the day
You are the night
I bring life, you bring doubt
You get bored by everything you see
You wanna hide, hide in the shadows
You're like winter, so bitter and cold

We are the day
We can ride golden rays of light
We are the sun that wants to save you from yourself
Running a knife across your veins is not an easy way out
Please believe in you my friend
Night and day

I see your head split in two
You moan life is so unfair
I've tried to reach you
But you're too far gone
I'm sorry I can't help you like you did
You're losing patience and you're losing the will to live

We won't follow you
We won't let you go
We won't follow you down
Track Name: Interstellar Riot
View 1

Bullet stars, bullet stars are heading to their sky
Intergalactic war we’ve declared
We're burning the human race, we show their fate
Now they are pushed into the past

With our silver ships we are approaching
Landing on survivors, silly human race
We're running over life, we cast our hate
Now they are part of the past

We're coming from outer space
Our new dark reign is shining
Coming from outer space
The celestial race replaces the sun
We replace the sun

View 2

Bullet stars, bullet stars are falling from above
Intergalactic war has been declared
They're burning the human race, they show our fate
Now we are pushed into the past

Silver ships, silver ships, they are approaching
Landing on survivors, silly human race
They're running over life, they cast their hate
Now we are part of the past

Coming from outer space
A new dark reign is shining
Coming from outer space
The celestial race replaces the sun

Passing by the eternal clouds of stars
They came to purify

View 3

Passing by the eternal clouds of stars
We came to purify
Passing by the eternal clouds of stars
We came to purify
We have sealed their fate
