1. Futureal

I'm running out of my time, I'm running out of breath
And now it's getting so I can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death
I'm getting in far too deep, I feel them closing in
I've got to say that I'm scared, I know they'll win
Even so, I'm prepared

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real?

Whenever anyone seems to treat me like a freak
It makes me see I'm the only one who feels
That I know, what is real
Sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this, then I will be gone
Maybe then you will see

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal!




2. The Angel & the Gambler

Roll of the dice, take a spin of the wheel
Out of your hands now, so how do you feel?
But youíre not gonna win, youíd better go back again

Do you feel lucky or do you feel scared
Take what luck brings and be Devil may care
But youíre down on your luck and what will the next day bring

Adrift on the ocean, afloat in a daydream
Or lost in a maze or blind in the haze
So what does it matter? So why donít you answer?
So why did you send an angel to mend?

Best make decisions before itís too late
Take all your chances, take hold of the reins
A roll of the dice, ahead of the game again

Nothing to lose, but so much to gain
A little danger - it goes without saying
But what do you care: youíre gonna go in the end

Gate open to Heaven, is ready and waiting
Or straight down to hell, can go there as well
Iíll suffer my craving, my soulís not worth saving
So why donít you go, just leave well alone?

Donít you think Iím a saviour
Donít you think I could save you
Donít you think I could save your life...

Thereís like a hunger that knocks on your door
Youíve had a taste of it, still you want more
Youíve made your mistakes, wonít play it the same again

You have been warned, but still you plunge in
You play high stakes, but thereís nothing to win
Youíve only one life and so many things to learn

The Angel on one side, the Devil the other
Which path do you take, decisions to make
Arrive at the crossroads, you know where youíre going
And what if you wait - it may be too late

Donít you think Iím a saviour
Donít you think I could save you
Donít you think I could save your life...




3. Lightning Strikes Twice

I feel the breeze on my face in expectance
Not very long before the storm reaches here
Off in the distance the lightning is flashing again
Feel something strong as the power draws near

Is it the rolling of thunder that scares you?
Is it the crashing of clouds that hold fear?
But all I know as I sit in a corner alone
It takes me back to my childhood again

And as I wait and I look for an answer
To all the things going round in my head
I ask myself: could it be a disaster and when
Itís maybe threatening to happen again

As the ominous light draws near
Thereís a lone dog howls in the park
All the people hurry inside
As a lightning flash lights dark
The storm is nearly here

Only God will know

Youíre sitting alone, you watch
As the wind is blowing treetops
And the swaying rustling of leaves
Plenty of time to perceive
As you wait for rain to fall

Only God knows; the whole sky glows

Maybe lightning strikes twice...




4. The Clansman

Wake alone in the hills with the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud and be free and a race
That is part of a clan and to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe so pure and so clean
When alone on the hills with the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel just to be free

It is right to believe in the need to be free
Itís a time when you die and without asking why
Canít you see what they do? They are grinding us down
They are taking our land that belongs to the clans
Not alone with a dream, just a want to be free
With a need to belong I am a clansman

Freedom! Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!

Itís a time wrought with fear, Itís a land wrought with change
Ancestors could hear what is happening now
They would turn in their graves, they would all be ashamed
That the land of the free has been written in chains

And I know what I want when the timing is right
Then Iíll take what is mine - I am the clansman

And I swear to defend and weíll fight to the end
And I swear that Iíll never be taken alive
And I know that weíll stand and weíll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns will be born free

And I know what I want when the timing is right
Then Iíll take what I want - I am the clansman

No, no we canít let them take anymore
No, we canít let them take anymore
Weíve the land of the free...




5. When Two Worlds Collide

My telescope looks out into the stars tonight
A little speck of light seems twice the size tonight
The calculations are so fine; can it be growing all the time?

Now I canít believe itís true and I donít know what to do
For the hundredth time I check the declination
Now the fear starts to grow, even my computer shows
There are no errors in the calculations

Now itís happened, take no other view
Collision course, you must believe itís true
Now thereís nothing left that we can do when-

Two worlds collide
The anger and the pain of all those who remain
Two worlds collide
Who will be left alive?
No place to hide when two worlds collide
The anger the pain of those who remain
When two worlds collide
When two worlds collide
So who will survive?
Thereís no place to hide when two worlds collide




6. The Educated Fool

Iím an educated fool so I donít know what it is Iím supposed to do
About this awkward situation thatís been forced down right upon me
As Iím walking down into on my own into the Valley of life
Got a lifetime of experience, yeah, Iíve got so much to give

Open the page at chapter one
Could this just be that lifeís just begun?
Forever within your darker thoughts
Reflecting on everything youíve been taught

Never felt this way before, seems that somebodyís just opened the door
To the book of life... or is it death? Is there ever anyway out?
Someoneís looking down on me to the very inner core of my soul
They wonít tell me what they see, but I really want to know

I want to leave my life on my own
I want to lift the unturned stone
I want to walk right into the fire
I want to live out all my desires
I want to go and see the fire burn
I want to see and feel my world turn
I want to know what more thereís to learn
I want to pass the point of no return

Do you really wanna be just another one statistic or feel
That you really should aspire, that you really do deserve more?
Do you ever really feel that you have so much potential inside?
What you really have to give could be realised so much more

~Time will flow and I will follow~
~Time will go, but I will follow~

I want to feel what lifeís like respond
I want to meet my father beyond
I want to walk right into the light
I want to feel no fear but delight




7. Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger

Donít look to the eyes of a stranger
Donít look through the eyes of a fool
Donít look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebodyís watching when the night comes down

Feel someoneís watching you you gotta get away
Is it the first time youíve ever felt this scared
Feel the adrenalin pump, your heart begins to race
Begin to run now; the sweat runs down your face

Donít know which way to turn, youíd better hide yourself
Heís getting closer now, youíd better improvise
Just hope you never reach the point of no return
Could be the last time you see the light of day

Donít look to the eyes of a stranger
Donít look through the eyes of a fool
Donít look to the eyes of a stranger
Somebodyís watching when the light goes down




8. Como Estais Amigos

Como esta amigo for the death of those we donít know
Shall we kneel and say a prayer? - They will never know we care
Shall we keep the fires burning, shall we keep the flames alight?
Shall we try to remember what is wrong and what is right?

No more tears, no more tears
If we live for a hundred years, amigos, no more tears

If we do forget them and the sacrifice they made
Will the wickedness and sadness come to visit us again
Shall we dance the dance in sunlight, shall we drink the wine of peace?
Shall our tears be of joy shall we keep at bay the beast?

Inside the scream is silent, inside it must remain
No victory, no vanquished; only horror, only pain
