1. Killing Time

Wrong place at the dead wrong time
Whatís mine is theirs but whatís theirs ainít mine
Hard times in the neighborhood
When lím good lím bad and I was never good
So I sat alone, Iíd sit and cry.

Just killing time
Iím killing time.

Minds bend, but they never break
They had to push, see just how much líd take
Lines fade between wrong and right
Iíd say itís black when theyíd say itís white
Still líd sit alone, but wouldnít cry.

Just killing time
Iím killing time
Been killing time
Itís killing time.

Somewhere along the way I lost my mind
Now I sit alone and watch em cry.

Itís killing time
Just killing time
Iím killing time
Itís killing time.




2. Long Gone

Nowís the time
See the writing on the wall
Lifeís a crime
Watch the axes as they fall.

Tear the page
Let them know youíve been around
Kick the cage
Turn it upside down.

Itís gonna be long gone
Gonna be long gone away
Gonna be long gone
Gonna be long gone away.

Walk your walk
Choose a path walked by the few
Save the talk
Show your point of view.

Itís gonna be long gone
Gonna be long gone away
Gonna be long gone
Gonna be long gone away
Nothing you can do
Nothing anybody else can say
Gonna be long gone
Gonna be long gone away.

Feet of clay
Never made a man stand tall
Seize the day
Be the writing on the wall.




3. Protect And Serve

Donít tell us your story
Donít tell us you tried
You swore to uphold it
You swore and you lied
You let down the people
You let down the law
Your sisters, your brothers
You turned on us all.

The pride of the city
The guardian in blue
Of duty and honor
You donít have a clue
Donít tell us youíre human
That truth is quite clear
Weíre lost our faith in you
We know whom to blame.

Protect and serve...

With every discretion
Youíre losing out trust
Your image is tarnished
Your badges in the dust
The shame of your family
The shame of the force
Your selfish indulgence
You felt no remorse.

Pray for our protectors
May god keep them strong?
Their purpose is noble
Protect us from wrong
Remember that honor and duty are one
Thereís more to a cop
Than a badge a gun.




4. Ready To Fall

Holy child
See what weíre come to today
We defile
All things that get in our way.

Now weíre ready to fall, ready to fall
Ready to fall, ready to fall.

So much pain gaze through the eyes of the poor
Worldís insane
Sorrow is at every door.

Well I think lím going crazy
Now I must be going mad
Been crawling in this stinking shit
My world is filled with bad
And I stumble and fall and lím sinking down
And lím clawing and starting to drown
I see pain and death and lies and hate
In every street and town.

Holy child
Thereís nothing that you can do
Prince of liar
Look how heís laughing at you.




5. Circles

We had out time itís over
Líve said my last goodbye
The lessons of a lifetime
I grieve but never cry
I live, but go through the motions
Canít seem to shake this devotion
My passion lived in your ocean.

You left me wandering around
Got me running in circles
Lost the strength that I found
Got me running in circles
Your memory cats a shadow
Your shadow walks with me
Your voice is now a whisper
I hear it endlessly
You haunt my every discretion
Your vision draws my attention
I break when your name is mentioned.

You left me wandering around
Got me running in circles
Lost the strength that I found
Got me running in circles
Now lím running around
Got me running in circles
Whereís the strength that líd found
Got me running.

Iím living but go through the motions
Canít seem to shake this devotion.

You felt me wandering around
Got me running in circles
Lost ther strength that I found
You got me running in circles
Iím still running around
You got me running in circles
God took the strength that líd found
Heís got me running.




6. Stand By For Pain

Pain in my heart
Pain in my soul
The kind of pain I pray that you
Will never know.

There ainít no right
There ainít no wrong
You never know just what to feel
Or for how long
Say youíre a smooth operator
You keep your motor clean
Sooner or later it bring you to your knees.

When you find love
Stand by for pain
When you find love
Stand by for pain
Stand by for pain.

You never know
When it will choose
But you can bet the bank on this boy
Youíre gonna lose.

You got no choice
You got no say
Thereís ainít a chance in hell of leavin
You better pray.

So if you think youíre the exception
You think youíll walk away
Donít fall for that deception
Everybodyís got to play.

Say youíre a smooth operator
You keep your motor clean
Sooner or later it bring you to your knees.




7. Just Business

Prying is for sinners
Losers and beginners
Yeah, itís just business
Watching all the big boys
Taking all the kids toys
Yeah, itís just business.

Itís just business
Its just business
Its just business
Itís nothing personal.

Corporations mandate
Profiteering dictates
Yeah, itís just business
Crush the opposition
With practiced precision
Yeah, itís just business.

Fast and efficient
Emotionally distant
Yeah, itís just business
Cold and resourceful
Never remorseful
Yeah, itís just business.




8. The Iron Road

You saw the beast of thunder
Felt itís deadly speed
Never were you so alive
The spell that you were under
Tou feld you spirits need
Had to ride that iron horse.

Broke through stony mountain
Laid that gleaming rail
Suffered through the worst of times
Pestilence abounded
Your spirit never failes
Worked until your body cried.

So go on my friend
You fought for the right
You lived by the rules
So when will it end
Through hunger and blight
Through rain, snow and night.

Itís the iron road
That leads you on
But in the end
All of your hope is gone
Itís the iron road
That brings you pain
And in the end
The iron road will reign.

As the years grew endless
You saw your demons breed
Gave into the darker side
Driven to obsession
To satisfy your need
Had to ride that iron horse.

Oh why my friend
Men died in the night
You fought for their tools
So when does it end
You crawled for your dream
You stole, lied, and schemed.

At last the days upon you
Youíll ride those gleaming rails
Climb aboard the iron horse
Its majesty alludes you
Itís ceremony pales
All you fell is cold remorse.

Oh ride my friend
So driven by spite
You broke every rule
Oh it never ends
You wonít be the same
Youíll die with the shame




9. Bad Rain

Look into my eyes
You wonít see them telling lies
See the trouble see the trials that surround me
Strain shows on my face
Its one thing time canít erase
Another catches, another chase
Hell has found me
Oh god knows that líve tried
Oh lím filled with the lies
Of dreams that have died.

Itís like a bad rain
Bad rain
Itís like a bad rain
Bad rain
Like a bad, bad rain
Comin down on me.

Why do I carry on?
Now that all my hope is gone
To the limit and beyond
What am I proving?
Yet I have nochoise
Like some disembodied voice
Ainít got nothing to rejoice
My lifeís in ruin
Oh the endís in my sight
Oh donít matter whoís right
Iím losing the fight.

If you could see the things líve seen
Do what líve done, be where líve been
Then you could feel the pain I feel
I wonít give in, I will never yield
So let it flow
Let if flow.

Look into my face
These battle scars state my case
Iíve run an uphill race
Iím not defeated.

Just try and knock me down
Iím a king without a crown
Out of way, lím taking ground
I wonít be beaten.

Iím like a bad rain...

Iím like a bad bad rain
Comin down on you.




10. Your Sorrow

I live for your pain
I thrive on your tears
I know to blame
Iíve waited for years
You tried your best to kill me
You gave it all you had
So now your anguish thrills me
I live to see you sad.

I welcome your grief
I love your distress
You bef for relief
I couldnít care less
Iíve waited years for this day
I counted every hour
I hate you every which way
So sweet your lifeís gone sour.

Your sorrow
Is my pleasure?
Your sorrow
Is my joy?

So how does it feel?
Itís your turn to cry
Your anguish is real
I donít care if you die
Youíve shown me your true colors
I know the you inside
And now I watch you suffer
You ran but couldnít hide.

Your sorrow
My passion
Your sorrow
Is my way?

Your sorrow
Is so thrilling
Your sorrow
Is my light?
Your sorrow
Soul filling
Your sorrow
Is so right.




11. Cry A Dying Man's Tears

Say you struggle
The worlds down on you
Lost and lonely
Donít know what to do
Your misfortunes ainít all the appear.

Cry
A dying manís tears
Cry
A dying manís tears.

You got troubles
You think that you do
Say you suffer
You donít got a clue
Your few problems canít even compare.

Your petty worries
Ainít all they could be
Look all around you
Real life agony
Heartbreak and suffering
Go on endlessly
Now tell me
Is your life really all that bad?

Say you got troubles
Iím laughing at you
Say you suffer
Yeah, compared yo who?
Your lifeís crises are your cross to bear.




12. All Things Must Change

In a life of dreams
Things arenít all they seem
Every prisonís not a cage
And líve learned one thing for sure
All things must change.

So líve lived my life
Through rose colored eyes
Lifeís so unreal from the stage
But the limelight fades away
All things must change.

There is no rhyme, there is no reason
Donít look to me for answers
Iíll give tou metaphors
And though a lying heart is treason
My only fear is sorrow
My pain is in the score
And nothing more.

Senses overload
Fields of depth explode
Mental fabric starts to fray
False reality
Lifeís triviality
Psychotic images remain.

As I live the passion play
Oh all things must change
Have i thrown my life away?
All things must change.

Corporate dynasties
Bring me to my knees
Negotiations strangulate
Faceless suited droids
Fight to fill some void
Sacrificial offering escalate.

And they donít know who to blame
All things must change
Lord líll never be the same
All things must change.

When líve seen it all
Another curtain falls
Depth of feelings hard to gauge
Twisted pictures pass
Through the tainted glass
I relieve it all in silent rage.

How much can one man endure?
All things must change
Iím a symptom and the cure
All things must change
Now líve learnes one thing for sure.

DYING TO LIVE

Tried just canít play the game
Got to get off this train
Iíve got nowhere to go
Canít win, canít place or show.

Dying to live...
Gonna be all right
Itís gonna be all right
Dying to live...

Iím drifting from the norm
No port in any storm
Caught in eternal lies
Who calls this paradise?

Dying to live...
Gonna be all right
Itís be all right
Dying to live...

Pray for those with out hope
Mourn for those living lies
Reach for those who canít cope
Scream for the ones whoíve died.

Dying to live...
Gonna be all right
Itís be all right
Dying to live...
