  • 02:09 First Breath
  • 04:25 Lyrics Race for Time

    MINUTE BY MINUTE
    A CLOCK STRIKES THE HOUR
    TIME TICKS AWAY
    BY ITS OWN POWER

    EACH PASSING MOMENT
    WE’LL SPEND OUR LIVES
    AS ONE ONGOING RACE FOR TIME
    EVERY SINGLE BREATH OF EVERY LAST MAN
    IS ONE BREATH GONE BY A CLOCK’S TICKING HAND
    EVERY SINGLE HOUR
    JUST TAKE WHAT CAN FIND
    ALL SYSTEMS GO
    RACE FOR TIME

    WE RUSH TO COMPLETE EACH STAGE OF LIFE
    WITHOUT HOLDING ON TO THE WARMTH OF THE LIGHT
    WORK, SCHOOL, FAMILY, YOU PASS EACH STAGE

    EACH PASSING MOMENT
    WE’LL SPEND OUR LIVES
    AS ONE ONGOING RACE FOR TIME
    RACE FOR TIME
    EVERY SINGLE BREATH OF EVERY LAST MAN
    IS ONE BREATH GONE BY A CLOCK’S TICKING HAND
    EVERY SINGLE HOUR
    JUST TAKE WHAT CAN FIND
    RACE FOR TIME

    THE SIGNS, THE FALL, THE TEARING MASS
    DECAY AND FIRE THE TIMES THAT LAST
    REBORN, REFORMED, THE SANDS STILL FALL
    LIKE FIELDS OF GRAY AND WORDS OF LAW
    DECREE AND SEND YOUR MESSAGE NOW
    TO ALL TO ALL

    RACE WITH ME
    WE PASS EACH STAGE
    RACE FOR TIME
    BUT DON’T ENJOY THE BOOK
    WITH EACH TURN OF PAGE
    RACE WITH ME..

    EACH PASSING MOMENT
    WE’LL SPEND OUR LIVES
    AS ONE ONGOING RACE FOR TIME
    I’M TIRED OF ALL THE HEARTACHE
    CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE
    I’VE SEEN IT SLIP AWAY
    RIGHT OUT THAT DOOR
    IT’S MIND OVER MATTER
    A PLACE SO SUBLIME
    BE AHEAD OF THE GAME
    AND WIN THE RACE FOR TIME
    WHEN LIFE SEEMS TO PASS YOU BY...

  • 04:44 Lyrics Seeing Double

    IT’S FEEDING ME IN SILENCE
    THE SPIRIT’S COMING NEAR
    IT ECHOES IN MY CHAMBER
    AS I SWALLOW UP THE FEAR..

    CLOSE THE DOOR
    AND INVITE ME IN

    SEIZE THE WORLD THAT TURNS
    WHEN LIGHTNING STRIKES THE HEART
    AN ENDLESS BLURRING VISION
    DISTRACTS THE RULE OF LAW
    IDENTITY IS SPOKEN
    YOU HEAR IT DOWN THE HALL
    IT ECHOES AND REVERBERATES
    AND SWELLS UP AS IT CRAWLS

    A SHADOW OF A FIGURE
    CREEPS INSIDE MY SKIN

    SO MANY WORDS ARE UTTERED
    TO FORCE THE MIND TO BEND
    THE LIES THAT WORLD HAS SPOKEN
    TO SHAPE ME TO AN END
    WHAT IS THIS MAN I SEE NOW
    WHO LOOKS UPON HIS HAND
    THE HAND THAT WIELDS HIS DESTINY
    IS NOT WHAT FATE HAD PLANNED

    I’M SEEING DOUBLE
    THINKING DOUBLE
    WHO AM I?
    CAN’T SEE ME ANYMORE

    LIGHTS OUT
    THE MIND’S IN TROUBLE
    SEEING DOUBLE, DEALING DOUBLE

    IT’S NOT SO EASY SOMETIMES
    TO BE WHO YOU WANT TO BE
    TO STICK TO YOUR CONVICTIONS
    LET EVERYBODY SEE
    THE SCARS AND IMPERFECTIONS
    THE MAN WHO HOLDS THE KEY
    TO THWART HIS OWN AMBITIONS
    TO BEND REALITY
    I HEARD IT FROM MY OWN VOICE
    IT TOLD ME TO BEWARE
    OF PHONY DOUBLE CROSSERS
    WHO NEVER SEEM TO CARE

    THERE HE IS WAITING FOR ME
    LIKE A SHADOW
    CAN I FIND MY OWN SELF WORTH
    AGAIN

  • 04:33 Lyrics Normal

    THE TEAR THAT SHEDS ALONE
    SECLUDED AND COMPARED
    A SENSE OF THE UNKNOWN
    YOU’RE FEARLESS YET YOU’RE SCARED

    ALL SYSTEMS DOWN
    THE FAITHLESS DO RETURN
    TO WHAT THEY HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN
    WITH SOMETHING NEW TO LEARN
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER

    A MOMENT ON YOUR OWN
    WITH EYES THAT SEEK YOUR FLAW
    THE FADING EMPTY HOLES
    A LONGING TO BELONG
    WHAT IS NORMAL?
    WHO AM I?
    A PENT UP TENSION
    THAT FORCES TO DIVIDE

    SEEKING WHAT’S FAIR
    WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE
    A HOLE IN OUR IDENTITY
    A PATH THAT WE MUST CHOOSE
    BUT DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER

    REMEMBER LOVE, IT CAME
    SO EASILY
    THE ONES WE THOUGHT OF MOST
    IT CHANGED ALL THAT WE SEE
    SO MUCH MORE
    TO REACH AND TO BELIEVE
    IT ALL HAS GONE AWAY

    BREAK DOWN THE WALLS
    BEFORE THEY SUFFOCATE
    ERODE THE WEARS
    OF SELF INFLICTED HATE

    SO PREPARE FOR OVERLOAD
    THERE’S TOO MUCH YET TO CHANGE
    A DRIVING FORCE OF ENERGY
    A MADDENED SPIRIT’S CRAZED
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    WHAT IS NORMAL?
    WHAT IS NORMAL?
    CAN I RUN? CAN I HIDE?
    IS THERE NO ENDING TO THIS?

    DOWN THE ROAD
    THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO FEAR
    WHEN EVERYONE BECOMES THE SAME
    THE TRUTH WILL THEN APPEAR
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    DON’T DRINK THE WATER
    AND WHO AM I?

  • 03:04 Lyrics It Takes Time

    DON’T TRY AND RUSH EVERYTHING
    TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS
    IN TIME IT BRINGS
    YOUR LOVE WILL BE IN TIME WILL COME
    SOON YOU’LL BE SHINING LIKE THE SUN

    ALL HURTS GONE
    I’M MOVING ON
    TO A BETTER LIFE IT SEEMS
    JUST WAIT NOW
    YOU’LL SEE HOW
    IT JUST TAKES TIME
    TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS

    AND WE’LL NEVER KNOW
    WHAT THINGS WILL BRING
    WE ALWAYS CLING TO FAMILY TREES
    AND SOMEDAY WE’LL FINALLY SEE

    DON’T BE UPSET BY YOUR PAST
    IN TIME YOUR HOPE WILL SURELY LAST
    YOUR DAY WILL BE
    IN TIME WILL COME
    LIVING YOUR LIFE LIKE NUMBER ONE

    ALL HURTS GONE
    I’M MOVING ON
    TO A BETTER LIFE IT SEEMS
    JUST WAIT NOW
    YOU’LL SEE HOW
    IT JUST TAKES TIME
    TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS

    IT JUST TAKES TIME
    A LITTLE TIME TO LIVE YOUR DREAMS
    IT JUST TAKES TIME
    A LITTLE TIME
    TO LIVE ALL OF YOUR DREAMS

    IT JUST TAKES TIME

  • 03:43 Lyrics Light Fantastic

    HALO, HE LIGHTS HIS OWN
    SO MUCH WORK
    NOW TIME TO FLY HOME
    RIDE THE SKY, FLY SO HIGH TO OPEN AIR
    SEEK TO BE WHAT NO ONE SEES
    SO MEET ME THERE
    FAILURE TO RESPOND
    OPEN WIND THAT CARRIES ME ON
    HEAVEN BOUND
    I HIT THE GROUND ONCE AGAIN
    THE LIGHT SURROUNDS AND GUIDES
    TO THOSE HEALING HANDS

    FANTASTIC BRIGHTLY COLORED ORBS
    OF SPECTRAL FLAMES
    YEAH
    AND I LIKE IT..

    RAINBOW COLORED NIGHTS
    HEAR THESE WORDS
    AND LET GO OF YOUR FIGHT
    PAINTED SUN, THE LIGHTED ONE
    HAS LED YOUR WAY
    SO MUCH LEFT
    COMPLETE THE TALE OF YESTERDAY
    FAILURE TO HEAR MY SONG
    DON’T FORGET TO
    LEAVE YOUR LIGHT ON..

  • 03:12 Lyrics A New Beginning

    EVERYONE NEEDS - A SECOND CHANCE TO SEE
    EVERY SKY BLEEDS - AS IT GETS THE BEST OF ME..

    WAITING SOLO ON A SUMMER DAY
    A PASSING CLOUD AND THEN YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY

    A WALL BETWEEN US LASTS A THOUSAND YEARS
    TO SIT AND WAIT
    THROUGH SWEAT AND TEARS

    SILENT ROADS AND BARREN MEETING PLACE
    A CHANGE OF VIEW AND NOW A CHANGE OF PACE

    A BROKEN WINDOW AND A SOLEMN WAY
    THE VIEW DISTORTED
    TURNS MY WORLD TO GRAY

    EVERYTHING BEFORE ME
    IN A WORLD I GRASP
    SEE THE MORNING DEW
    SEE THE TIMES THAT LAST
    EVERY SINGLE MOMENT
    THERE’S A OPENING
    TO A LIGHT THAT SHINES
    AS THE SPARROWS SING

    I FEEL - A NEW BEGINNING COMING THROUGH
    I SEE- A NEW HORIZON IN MY VIEW

  • 03:16 Lyrics You

    WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY
    THE WORLD GOES BY
    AND YOU MAKE IT FLY

    FEELING THE WORLD IS LOOKING DOWN
    WATCHING YOUR HANDS THAT TOUCH ME NOW
    A SMILE THAT SHATTERS SOUND
    AND YOU LOOK TO ME
    LOOKING FOR SOME BRIGHTER SUN
    LISTENING FOR A VOICE THAT’S SLOWING TIME
    REACHING TO FIND MY ONLY GOAL
    A LIFE THAT’S OURS TO KNOW
    AND YOU MAKE IT WHOLE

    WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY
    THE WORLD GOES BY
    AND YOU FILL MY LIFE

  • 03:30 Lyrics 2 Am

    TIME IT MOVES AROUND ME
    AND SHROUDS MY EVERY MOVE
    THE VOICES THEY ARE CALLING ME

    HERE IN MY HEAD
    I CAN SEE THE FUTURE’S END
    HERE I LAY DOWN INSTEAD
    WHEN IT’S SO HARD TO MEND FOR ME

    I KEEP RUSHING OUT
    (TWISTED AND TANGLED)
    I KEEP WAITING FOR A SIGN
    (AWKWARD AND MANGLED)
    I KEEP PUSHING FOR MORE
    (KEEP WAITING)
    I KEEP WAITING HERE IN LINE
    (WAITING FOR A SIGN)

    BROKEN BUT I’M WILLING
    DONE IT ALL BEFORE
    I WAITED BY THE SEASHORE
    EVEN KNOCKED ON HEAVEN’S DOOR

    HERE IN MY HEAD
    I CAN SEE THE LIGHT THAT ENDS
    HERE I LAY DOWN INSTEAD
    AND SEE WHAT LIES AHEAD OF ME

    I KEEP RUSHING OUT
    I KEEP WAITING FOR A SIGN
    SOMETHING IN MIND
    SOMETHING FOR ME
    KEEP WAITING

  • 03:27 Lyrics Lost in the Crowd

    I WAS A YOUNG MAN
    FULL OF HATE
    I COULDN’T UNDERSTAND
    WHY EVERYONE LOOKED DOWN
    UPON ME
    IT DIDN’T MAKE NO SENSE
    I LOOKED UP TO ALL
    I JUST WANTED SOME RESPECT
    WAS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? HUH..

    I’M SICK AND TIRED
    LOSING MY WAY
    DON’T KNOW WHY
    I CAN’T FACE THE DAY
    RUNNING OUT OF TIME
    I’M ALL OUT OF PLACE
    AND UNLUCKY AT LUCK
    CAN’T STAY IN THE RACE OF LIFE

    WELL I STAND AMAZED
    LOOKING INTO SPACE
    A BLANK SPACE IN MY MIND
    IT’S DARK AND EMPTY AND UNKIND
    A FOOL WAS I JUST SITTING THERE
    AND PEOPLE JUST DON’T CARE
    WHY DON’T THEY UNDERSTAND MY WAY
    WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE FIND ME

    WON’T YOU HELP ME NOW
    I’VE BEEN HERE WAY TOO LONG
    WON’T YOU SAVE ME NOW
    I BID FAREWELL
    SO LONG

    LOST IN THE CROWD
    JUST LOST IN THE CROWD

  • 03:35 Lyrics Love Is

    KISSES WITH NO WISHES
    LOVE WITH NO REGRETS
    WAITING TO FIND THE LOST PIECE OF TIME
    JUST WHAT YOU’D EXPECT
    FEELING FOR THE SANE
    OF AN INSANE DREAM
    LOSING YOUR WITS, YOU TAKE PART IN IT
    THE SLATE WILL REMAIN CLEAN

    LOVE IS
    LOVE IS
    LOVE IS YOU
    MY DARLING ONE
    THE RISING OF THE SUN

    HOLD ONTO THE SACRED
    RELYING ON YOUR FRIENDS
    CHOOSING THE RIGHT WORDS
    OR NO WORDS AT ALL
    WHEN THE SILENCE ENDS

    LOVE IS
    LOVE IS
    LOVE IS YOU
    MY DARLING ONE
    THE RISING OF THE SUN
    LOVE IS..

    BRINGING TO A CLOSURE
    A CLOSED AND FEEBLE MIND
    WAITING FOREVER, YOU SIT AND REMAIN
    AND LOSING TRACK OF TIME

    LOVE IS
    LOVE IS YOU MY DARLING ONE
    THE RISING OF THE SUN
    LOVE IS YOU

  • 04:56 Lyrics King of Fools

    PRINCE OF PAIN AND APATHY
    FIT TO REIGN
    IN VALES OF GLORY

    BLOCKING INTERVENTION
    STORMING PAST THEM ALL
    SPARKS OF NO INVENTION
    LEADING TO THE FALL

    EYES OF BLIGHT
    TERRORIZED AND FLAWED
    DARK ANGELS SEEK HIS PRESENCE
    SO MALLEABLE AND RAW

    THE KING OF FOOLS
    HE LIGHTS THE WAY
    BREAKING THE RULES
    MAKING THEM PAY

    HE’S THE TERROR
    HOW CAN WE BE SO BLIND
    TO WHAT IS DONE, HIS THOUGHTS ALONE
    BRAINWASHING SIMPLE MINDS

    THE KING OF FOOLS
    HE LEADS THE WAY
    NOT FIT TO RULE
    YET HAS HIS DAY

    (WELL IT’S ALL BEHIND
    NEVER GOING BACK
    ARE WE JUST TOO FAR GONE?
    DO WE NOT SEE THE LIGHT?
    OF KINGS OF OLD)

    MEN AND KINGS UNITED
    WORKING BEFORE LONG
    SOLDIERS ONCE DIVIDED
    FIGHTING TO BE ONE

    NOTHING SEEMS TO STOP HIM
    NO ONE LETS HIM BY
    NOT ONE STRONG ENOUGH
    TO SAY ENOUGH
    OF ALL THESE LIES

    THE KING OF FOOLS
    LIGHTING THE WAY
    SEEKING TO RULE
    ALL POWER PLAYS

    SHALLOW MEN MUST SEE
    ETERNITY IS AT STAKE
    ALLOW THIS FOOL TO REIGN
    WITH BITTER SELFISH HATE

    THE KING OF FOOLS
    LEADING THE WAY
    BREAKING THE RULES
    HE HAS HIS DAY..

    THE KING OF FOOLS
    LONG LIVE FOOL
