Track Name: Crystal Rose
My love is
A crystal rose
So beautiful and fragile
You hold it in your hands
Why can't you see?

So fragile
This crystal rose
So delicate to cradle
too easy
To crush it in your hands

The beauty
Of a crystal rose
Reflects inside your eyes
But you don't see it
Don't see it as I do

Track Name: Unrequited
Take it all
It was all there in that moment you were standing there
Your so beautiful and vulnerable and far away
Like a ghost
lost in a dream
Nothing I could do

I knew it then
For a fleeting single second While I stood there
So confused and so incapable and far away
Like a whisper
lost in the wind
Nothing you would do

This unrequited love
This unrequited love
This unrequited love
Is killing me inside

And now its gone
Lost forever in a moment never to return
Perfection in a memory I can recall
It haunts my dreams
And questions all
that I believe

This unrequited love
This unrequited love
This unrequited love
Is killing me inside

This unrequited love
This unrequited love
This unrequited love
Is killing me inside
Track Name: Time to Make you Mine
I've waited
So long and
Its here in
This song now
I've got to
Let you know
Theres something
I Can't let go
I've known for
Some time now
We need to
Be one now

And now its time to make you mine
I'll take the time to make you mine

Slow moving
Sweet talking
So soothing
When I'm lonely
Good looks and
Great style and
I loose myself
In your smile
I've known for
Some time now
We need to
Be one now

And now its time to make you mine
I'll take the time to make you mine
Track Name: The Angel
My angel came on a Sunday morning
Filled my heart with her joy and healing
Bathed my soul in a holy light
Filled my days and she soothed my night times

Gave me hope when I had none
Taught the meaning of right and wrong
Showed me love that I'd never known
Slayed my demons and bought me home

Angel left on a Friday evening
Stole my heart and my soul was bleeding
Left me standing at heavens gates
She couldn't save me now its too late

She flew away

She flew away
Track Name: The Piper
Stood in dark cold and the rain
Nothing left to say
Decisions made had all gone wrong
Things hadn't gone our way
And we had no where left to go
But then a sound came from below

And so we danced
The piper played his song
And so we danced
And we had everything, everything we need

The sound reached out in to our hearts
And we could feel once more
A beacon shining in the night
We only wanted more
Lifted our heads up to the sky
And then as one we moved in time

And so we danced
The piper played his song
And so we danced
And we had everything, everything we need

The music played and set us free
And took away out fear
It showed us all we need to be
There are no strangers here
We see no wrong, there is no right
And so we dance into the night

And so we danced
The piper played his song
And so we danced
And we had everything, everything we need
Track Name: Forever Girl
You are my forever
Your are my forever girl
You are my forever
You are my forever girl

You are my forever

Forever girl you rock my world
The only one I need

You are my forever
Your are my forever girl
You are my forever
You are my forever girl

Always and forever

Forever girl please take my hand
You're all that I believe

You are my forever
Your are my forever girl
You are my forever
You are my forever girl
Track Name: Machinehead
I feel the beat
from the machines
take over me
my soul is free

I'm getting lost in the rhythm

I'm so lost in the rhythm

A data feed
Programming me
To feel the beat
To move my feet

I'm getting lost in the rythm

I'm so lost in the rythm
Track Name: Buzzkiller
You can find it everywhere you go
It breaks your spirit and destroys your soul
Sacred words for the scared of heart
Preaching fear to tear your life apart
Tell you its over now before you start
Breaking away is the hardest part
Try and ignore all the things they say
But the noise will never go away

Buzzkiller
Buzzkiller

Read the text from the word of man
Life your life and do the best you can
Work according to the master plan
But no one really gives a damn
Tell you to pray and that you'll do well
Suppress your thoughts because you'll go to hell
Nothing but words in the lies they tell
Nothing but noise you need to break the spell

Buzzkiller
Buzzkiller

You can find it everywhere you go
It breaks your spirit and destroys your soul
Sacred words for the scared of heart
Preaching fear to tear your life apart
Tell you its over now before you start
Breaking away is the hardest part
Try and ignore all the things they say
But the noise will never go away

Buzzkiller
Buzzkiller
Track Name: Devils Heart
If you play with the devils heart
You'll get burned

If you play with the devils heart
You'll get burned

Don't play with fire
Don't play with your desires
Don't play with fire
You'll burn in the fire

If you play with the devils heart
You'll get burned
Track Name: System Error
We live a life inside a dream
But nothings ever as it seems
We're walking
We carry on into the fire
With tired hearts that can't inspire
We're falling
We cannot see our destiny
No matter what we try to be
Its calling

Broken hearts and broken minds
Not wanting anything we find
Just being
The darkness falls and we are blind
Trapped inside our own state of mind
Unseeing
The careless whispers carry on
But bring us all the same old songs
We're bleeding

A system
A system
A system
A system error...
A system
A system error...

We walk on paths of broken glass
And wait for things to come to pass
Unfeeling
No angels wings on which to soar
Just can't be bothered anymore
Stagnating
Re living every day the same
When only promises remain
Repeating

A system
A system
A system
A system error...
A system error...
A system error...
Track Name: Clockwork Something
Its in the silence in the dead of night
Its always working when its out of sight
You'll never beat it but you think you might
Because you're always running out of time

Its in the darkness sitting in the hall
A soulless phantom up there on the wall
A stark reminder it will take us all
Our hopes and fears as we rise and fall

A proud invention that pandora gave
Forever moving on and we're all slaves
A demon child to catch us unawares
A clockwork something that just sits and stares....
