Track Name: Why (My Oh My)
Everybody here's running away.
You don't exactly know just what to say.
You were the bad guy right from the start,
You go on breakin' everybody's hearts.

My oh my, I just don't know why,
everybody's gone and leave me behind.
All my sins and all my pride,
no wonder everybody's left me to die.

I spend my whole life going insane,
'cause they can pick me up and lock me away.
I know that I've got to change today,
'cause I'm causin' so much pain!

My oh my, I just don't know why,
everybody's gone and leave me behind.
All my sins and all my pride,
no wonder everybody's left me to die.

Oh no, oh yeah.
Oh no, oh yeah.
Oh.

My oh my, I just don't know why,
everybody's gone and leave me behind.
All my sins and all my pride,
no wonder everybody's left me to die.
Track Name: Take The Fall
They've always said the elephant
can never crush the ant,
The meek should have inherited,
but the cold truth is they can't.

Not a single thing'll cure us,
from this wretched curse.
It is laid right there upon us,
'till we're picked up by the hearse.

You try to run but you can't get far.
Come to terms on your own ramparts.
Day by day you've seen it all.
Only now you must take the fall.

I said a'we are not important,
our fate is wrought in stone.
In this selfish world we live in
you are standing there alone.

No one to remember you,
or kindly bid farewell.
All that it comes down to,
is you'll become a corpses shell.

You try to run but you can't get far.
Come to terms on your own ramparts.
Day by day you've seen it all.
Only now you must take the fall.

No one to remember you,
or kindly bid farewell.
All that it comes down to,
is you'll become a corpses shell.

You try to run but you can't get far.
Come to terms on your own ramparts.
Day by day you've seen it all.
Only now you must take the fall.
Track Name: Heart On The Ground
Your empire has fallen,
Your reign is just a lie.
Our flag engulfed in flames,
upon your funeral pyre.
Your pleas for life mean nothing,
your heirs now work for us.
You want to spare your life?
Then they shall bite the dust.

I did not think you'd let me down.
You left me alone to feel like a clown.
I gave you every chance that I could,
And still you've gone ahead and tossed my heart on the ground.

Villages are burning,
folks they scream in pain.
Now here comes the payroll,
for those who die in vain.
You're lost here and forgotten,
and no one knows your name.
They will only see your death
and your judgment day.

I did not think you'd let me down.
You left me alone to feel like a clown.
I gave you every chance that I could,
And still you've gone ahead and tossed my heart on the ground.

Instrumental

I did not think you'd let me down.
You left me alone to feel like a clown.
I gave you every chance that I could,
And still you've gone ahead and tossed my heart on the ground.
Track Name: Requiem Bell
I've climbed the highest mountain,
and marched on through the rain.
I traced right o'er the ocean,
and sprinted o'er the plains.
I stood there on the cliff side,
the walls were closing in.
It was plain to see
I was not to be forgiven.

No one knows the shadow cast at dawn,
of the man who did ensure the world was gone.

I cant go on,
The bells just tolls on,
and night brings mourning to everyone.
To walk on eggshells,
that is your life,
Chanting o`er your funeral pyre.

Carved deep the in stone,
is the fate of all mankind.
Destruction will be sewn,
toiled and weaved in time.
Thus begins the wrath
of the hundredth level in hell.
Nothing really matters,
I've just become a shell.
I'm read aloud just like an open book.
My faults and foibles branded me a fool.
No one knows the shadow cast at dawn,
of the man who did ensure the world was gone.

I cant go on,
The bells just tolls on,
and night brings mourning to everyone.
To walk on eggshells,
that is your life,
Chanting o`er your funeral pyre.

Instrumental Interlude

I cant go on,
The bells just tolls on,
and night brings mourning to everyone.
To walk on eggshells,
that is your life,
Chanting o`er your funeral pyre.
Track Name: Going Under
Well I've been denied the right,
the right to put up a fight.
I just can't hold back anymore,
I will never see the light.
Just another face on the street,
It just might be who you meet.
Time goes by and low and behold,
you're just another corpse rotting in the cold.

I'm going under,
I'm gonna take you with me now.
Cause'a I'm going under,
Oh boy your mother would be proud.

Well I've always done no wrong,
It never stayed that way for long...
I never really knew how to live,
till it was far too late for me.
I'm just another face on the street,
I just might be who you meet.
Time goes by and low and behold,
I'm just another corpse rotting in the cold.

I'm going under,
I'm gonna take you with me now.
Cause'a I'm going under,
Oh boy your mother would be proud.

I'm condemned to go,
I can't be saved and
You must never leave my sight.

I'm going under,
I'm gonna take you with me now.
Cause'a I'm going under,
Oh boy your mother would be proud.
Track Name: Huffin And Puffin
I was` asittin at the bar with my drink in hand.
Then I thought I`d stick around and watch the band.
She stood there right before me,
with her hair so long.
Next thing that I knew we was dancin` all night long!

Choo Choo, Movin anda groovin,
Poof poof, Huffin anda puffin,
All night long

The way she move those hips,
Right on time.
Those red delicious lips,
sweet as wine.
She had her arms around me,
and looked me right in the eye.
Next thing that I knew,
I`m one lucky guy.

Choo Choo, Movin anda groovin,
Poof poof, Huffin anda puffin,
All night long

She is my baby doll,
My little B-Movie queen.
I said `a She is my baby doll,
Dancin` on the movie screen.

Choo Choo, Movin anda groovin,
Poof poof, Huffin anda puffin,
All night long
All night long
Track Name: Her
Out there in the distance, In the desert sand,
My lady waits in the corner, for me to hold`er hand.
Sooner or later, drowned in our own thoughts,
I`ve no idea if she`ll ever understand.

`Cause she thinks the world is under her command,
Everything just falls into her hand.
Because she`s superior, and we`re all inferior.
The world revolves around her.

I go out by the water, to collect my thoughts.
It`s about time that I told her, that I have had enough.
Sooner or later, in the blazing heat........
I`ve no idea, if she`ll ever understand.

`Cause she thinks the world is under her command,
Everything just falls into her hand.
Because she`s superior, and we`re all inferior.
The world revolves around her.x2
Track Name: Keep It Dark
Can you find it in you,
to unleash your restless soul?
Would it not be prudent,
to let nature take its toll.
I may not have the answers,
But there is one thing that I know.
Although, you must`nt worry,
`Cause the transaction has been made.

I`m afraid there`s been a change of plans,
You will have to wait in line.
We`re meant to bend the laws `round here,
So listen, and listen close.
Keep it nice and dark.

Don`t look behind you,
you must already know I`m here.
Here take this keepsake,
I must extend my gratitude.
Thanks for letting me whisk you,
and for staying here with me.
I think you`ll find the exit,
is nowhere to be seen.

I`m afraid there`s been a change of plans,
You will have to wait in line.
We`re meant to bend the laws `round here,
So listen, and listen close.
Keep it nice and dark.
We`re meant to bend the laws `round here,
So listen, and listen close.
Keep it nice and dark.
