1. Desert of the Lost Souls

MAGINE A WORLD WHICH WOULD HAVE NO
CONSEQUENCES FOR OUR ACTIONS.
NO SPACE, NO FOOD, NO RESPECT FOR LIFE OR DEATH OR GOD, JUST A CROWDED DESERT
OF LOST SOULS LOOKING DOWN ON TOP OF THE WORLD.




2. Walking on Top of the World

YOU WONíT FIND ME LAUGHING ,
I DONíT THINK I CAN CRY
IíM MENTALLY WASTED AND
YOUíRE THE REASON WHY
YOU WONíT FIND ME GUILTY ,
YOU WONíT FIND ME WRONG
YOU WONíT FIND ME HOME
COS IíM ALREADY GONE


SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT I STILL WAKE UP ON THE WRONG
SIDE OF THE BED
SLEEPING DEEPER IíM SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT ITíS WAY TOO SOON I CANíT SLEEP
IN THE MIDDLE YET,
WHEN ITíS OVER ITíS OVER

IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
AND DANCING ON THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST
IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
THE TROUBLE WITH FOREVER IS FOREVERS MADE
TO LAST

IíM SUDDENLY FLYING , IíM FINALLY SURE
COS ALL THAT YOU LEFT ME IS STRONGER

IíM SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT I STILL WAKE UP ON THE WRONG
SIDE OF THE BED
SLEEPING DEEPER IíM SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT ITíS WAY TOO SOON I CANíT SLEEP
IN THE MIDDLE YET, WHEN ITíS OVER ITíS OVER

IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
AND DANCING ON THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST
IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
THE TROUBLE WITH FOREVER IS FOREVERS
MADE TO LAST

-EINSTEIN OVERTURNED PRESENT REALITY BY ADDING A FIFTH PART, A
FIFTH DIMENSION.
THE DEPTH BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL,
THE GREATEST DIVIDE OF ALL.

IíM SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT I STILL WAKE UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED SLEEPING DEEPER IíM
SLEEPING DEEPER
BUT ITíS WAY TOO SOON I CANíT SLEEP IN THE MIDDLE YET, WHEN ITíS OVER
ITíS OVER OVER ITíS OVER
IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD
AND DANCING ON THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST
IíM WALKING ON TOP OF THE WORLD THE TROUBLE WITH FOREVER IS FOREVERS MADE TO
LAST




3. Book of Secrets

-MAKE SECRET THESE WORDS AND SEAL UP
THE BOOK UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END.


TOO MANY LINES TO READ BETWEEN
TOO MANY MINDS ARE COMING CLOSE TO THE EXTREME
ARE YOU THE NAMED ARE YOU PURE
DARE YOU BELIEVE IN SOMETHING NEVER SEEN BEFORE

SECRETS SOON TO BE SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK
SECRETS SOON TO BE SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK

THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE WORDS OF WISER MEN THAN I
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE CODE IS FALLING FALLING FROM THE SKY
FALLING FROM THE SKY, FALLING FROM THE SKY

IS THIS THE DAWN OF SOMETHING NEW
THE CLOCK IS TICKING AND THEREíS NOTHING
I CAN DO
IN PLACE OF GUESSING WHATíS TO COME
UNLOCK THE SECRETS CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND KISS THE SUN

SECRETS SOON TO BE, SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK
SECRETS SOON TO BE, SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK

THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE WORDS OF WISER MEN THAN I
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE CODE IS FALLING FROM THE SKY
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE WORDS OF WISER MEN THAN I
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE CODE IS FALLING, FALLING FROM THE SKY
FALLING FROM THE SKY, FALLING FROM THE SKY

AT THE CLOSE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY,
WE ARE THREATENED
WITH THE KIND OF CHAOS THAT
THE WORLD HAS NEVER FACED
BEFORE. WE HAVE BUILT WEAPONS
THAT CAN DESTROY HUMAN
CIVILISATION IN A SINGLE DAY,
THESE WEAPONS MAY BE ON THE LOOSE.

SECRETS SOON TO BE, SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK
SECRETS SOON TO BE, SECRETS SOON TO BE TOLD
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE OPEN BOOK

THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE WORDS OF WISER MEN THAN I
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE CODE IS FALLING FROM THE SKY
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE WORDS OF WISER MEN THAN I
THE BOOK OF SECRETS
THE CODE IS FALLING FALLING FROM THE SKY
FALLING FROM THE SKY, FALLING FROM THE SKY

-BUT NEITHER IN HEAVEN NOR EARTH WAS THERE
A SINGLE ONE ABLE TO OPEN THE SCROLL OR LOOK
INTO IT. AND AS FOR YOU MEN OF VISION EVERYTHING
WILL BECOME LIKE THE WORDS OF THE BOOK THAT
HAS BEEN SEALED UP.




4. When Heaven Calls Your Name

-AND HE WILL WIPE OUT EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR
EYES AND DEATH WILL BE NO MORE.
NO MOURNING, NO OUTCRY NOR PAIN BE ANYMORE.


SUDDENLY ITíS COLDER, SUDDENLY THE SUN HAS GONE
BUT IF THE REAL WORLDíS OVER THEN YOUR LIFE HAS JUST BEGAN

AND IF I PROMISE NOT TO CRY, WILL YOU PROMISE NOT TO DIE
LIVE ON INSIDE OF ME YOU STAY FOREVER YOUNG
FOREVER YOUNG

WHEN HEAVEN CALLS YOUR NAME
YOUR SPIRIT STAYS ALIVE
SAFE IN MY HEART
WHEN HEAVEN CALLS YOUR NAME
YOU ARE FREE AND YOU CAN FLY
HERE IN MY HEART

AND IF TIME CAN HEAL THE PAIN
THEN I WONíT BE HEALED AGAIN
IF YOUR LIGHT WENT OUT TOO SOON
THEN I 'LL BURN THE FLAME FOR YOU
BURN THE FLAME FOR YOU
WHEN HEAVEN CALLS YOUR NAME
YOUR SPIRIT STAYS ALIVE
SAFE IN MY HEART
WHEN HEAVEN CALLS YOUR NAME
YOU ARE FREE AND YOU CAN FLY
HERE IN MY HEART

DEDICATED TO PHIL McCORMICK




5. It's Not Over (Until It's Over)

A CHANGE OF HEART IS NO EXCUSE TO
TURN ME LOOSE
AND I PLAY THE PART BUT THE FOOL IN ME COULD NEVER HEAR YOU

FOOLS LOVE
MY FINGERS ACHE FROM HOLDING ON
FOOLS LOVE
THE CLOUDS THAT HIDE YOUR LOVE ARE GONE

ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
FLYING IN THE FACE OFLOVE
ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
POWER OF THE HEART IS STRONG ENOUGH

ALL OF THE TIME
FEELINGS WHEELS ARE TURING OVER NOW
READ THE SIGNS
THEREíS SO MUCH MORE TO REDISCOVER

SAY WHEN
ITíS EASY TO REPLACE ONE MORE
SAY WHEN
THE ANSWER IS WORTH WAITING FOR

ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
FLYING IN THE FACE OF LOVE
ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
POWER OF THE HEART IS STRONG
ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
FLYING IN THE FACE OF LOVE
ITíS NOT OVER UNTIL ITíS OVER
POWER OF THE HEART IS STRONG ENOUGH




6. Do You Dream of Angels

NOW YOUR SLEEPING NOW YOUR STILL
SOFTLY TELL YOU HOW I FEEL
AND IF YOU DREAM A THOUSAND YEARS
I STILL BE HERE, FOREVER HERE . . .

HOLD ME IN YOUR SLEEPY EYES
HOLD ME CLOSER, WHISPER ME GOODNIGHT
LET THE MOON LIGHT HAVE ITíS WAY
THROUGH THE SILENCE
I CAN HEAR YOU SAY

DO YOU DREAM OF ANGELS
WELL I DO WHEN I'M DREAMING OF YOU
DO YOU DREAM OF ANGELS
I DO WHEN IíM DREAMING OF YOU
I DREAM OF ANGELS WHEN I SEE YOU

FILL ME WITH YOUR SYMPHONY
OVERTURES OF LOVE IN HARMONY
IN YOUR SILENT JOURNEYING
TAKE ME WITH YOU . . . CAN I HEAR YOU SAY
NOW YOUR SLEEPING, NOW YOUR STILL
SOFTLY TELL ME HOW YOU FEEL
DO YOU DREAM OF ANGELS
WELL I DO WHEN I'M DREAMING OF YOU
DO YOU DREAM OF ANGELS
I DO WHEN IíM DREAMING OF YOU
I DREAM OF ANGELS WHEN I SEE YOU




7. Seven Days Into Nevermore

-WE DONíT KNOW WITH WHAT WEAPONS
WORLD WAR THREE WILL BE FOUGHT ,
BUT WORLD WAR FOUR WILL BE FOUGHT WITH STICKS AND STONES. THIS IS
NOT THE END OF
PREDICTED DANGER.

ITíS YOUR DISGRACE
BUT YOU MADE IT WELL,
SO THE WORLD CAN TELL
ITíS YOUR FACE
ITíS ON THE FIRE THAT BURNS INSIDE
AND I SEE THE LIGHT

THE COLOURS OF YOUR HEART
AND THEYíRE SLOWLY CHANGING
THE COLOURS OF YOUR MIND
AND THEYíRE SLOWLY FADING

ITíS ALL IN VAIN,
SO TIME DOES WHAT IT WILL,
TRY ASKING WHOSE TO BLAME ,
FOR A THROW AWAY EXISTENCE
I SEE . . .THE LIGHT, THE WAY
NOTHING OF THE PAST
AND WERE DISAPPEARING
AND NOTHING GONNA LAST
THE END IS NEARING

CHANGES CHANGING,
SEVEN DAYS INTO NEVERMORE
LEARNING TURNING,
SEVEN DAYS INTO NEVERMORE

YOUíRE A GRAIN OF SAND
IN THE DESERT THAT WAS MANKIND
I DONíT UNDERSTAND
HOW ALL OF US ARE BLINDED,
BY THE LIGHT, BLINDED

TURN ANOTHER PAGE, AND THEREíS NO BEGINNING
WE ARE JUST AT AN AGE, AND TIME IS WINNING

CHANGES CHANGING, SEVEN DAYS INTO NEVERMORE
LEARNING TURNING, SEVEN DAYS INTO NEVERMORE

SEVEN DAYS . . .NEVERMORE, GRAIN OF SAND
YOU KNOW THE SCORE, DESERT MAN . . .
HE NEEDS ONE MORE, SEVEN DAYS TO NEVERMORE

TO NEVERMORE, TO NEVERMORE, FOREVERMORE




8. Miracles and Dreams

SO MUCH FOR REAPING WHAT YOU SOW
ISNíT TIME THE ENEMY AGAIN
BELIEVING CUTS DEEPER THAN YOU KNOW
NEVER WAS A NATURAL BELIEVER IN THE END

THROUGH THESE EYES
IMAGES AND STORIES
LEFT UNHEARD, SLOWLY BURN
IN THESE SKIES ARE CENTURIES OF PROMISES
UNLEARNED NEVER LEARNED

HOLDING OUT WHATíS COMING IN
KEEPS THE HEART FROM BURNING

WITH THOSE MIRACLES AND DREAMS
TAKING ALL MY SENSES AND COLOURING BETWEEN
MIRACLES AND DREAMS
HOW CAN I GET BY WITHOUT THE HARMONY
WITHIN, DO YOU KNOW
TOMORROW COULD BE TAKEN FROM YOUR HAND,
YES IT CAN

AFTER THIS WAVE YOUR WORLD GOODBYE
AND NEVER KISS YOUR LOVE AGAIN

IF IíM STRONG ENOUGH
AND LIVE LONG ENOUGH
I STILL BELIEVE IN THOSE

MIRACLES AND DREAMS
TAKING ALL MY SENSES AND COLOURING BETWEEN
MIRACLES AND DREAMS
HOW CAN I GET BY WITHOUT THE HARMONY
WITHIN

- THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE IS ONLY AN ILLUSION.

MIRACLES AND DREAMS
TAKING ALL MY SENSES AND COLOURING BETWEEN
MIRACLES AND DREAMS
HOW CAN I GET BY WITHOUT THE HARMONY
WITHIN




9. Stranger Days (To Come)

ITíS A PERSONAL FEELING HOW YOUR
WORLD IS TURNING
YOU CAN BLIND YOUR EYES, BUT, YOU DECIDE
AND SOMETHING IS ACHING
AND YOUR WORLD IS BREAKING DOWN

THEREíS A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN THIS
THAT YOUíRE DYING TO RESIST
THERE'S A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN THIS

THERE ARE STRANGER DAYS TO COME
WHEN ALL THE RIVERS RUN DRY
THERE ARE STRANGER DAYS TO COME . . .

YOU CAN ALMOST TASTE IT,
BUT YOU CAN REPLACE IT
THEREíS A HOMEGROWN MADNESS GOING ON
GET TO KNOW YOU R FEELINGS
THE EMOTION CAN EXPLODE

THEREíS A WIDER WORLD I HEAR
LET YOUR CONSCIENCE DISAPPEAR
WITH AN EASY RIDE FROM HERE

THERE ARE STRANGER DAYS TO COME
WHEN ALL OF THE RIVERS RUN DRY

THEREíS NO SUN IN THE SKY FOREVER
I SEE STRANGER DAYS THAN THESE
IN MY HEART IN MY DREAMS
WHEN THE WORLD STOPS SPINNING ME FOREVER . . .

FOREVER
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
FOREVER, FOREVER
FOREVER, AND EVER, FOREVER, FOREVER
I SEE STRANGER DAYS . . .
