Track Name: Promised Land
PROMISED LAND
(D.Trigger)

I’m standing down, I’ve lost my faith,
I’ve thought this over and over again but still feel the same,
I hit the ground, can’t find my way,
I piled harder demands on myself just to feel more pain.

I weigh my heart’s desire,
‘gainst all the wasted time,
My dis-illusion is now tearing me down.

I’m never gonna see the promised land,
Seems I’ve built castles in the sand,
(The dream is over now, burn it to the ground)
I’m never gonna find that guiding light,
Heavy heart feels no peace inside,
(Building hopes so high, throw them to the fire)

I’ve come so far my throat is dry,
I dragged my bones through the dust just to quench this thirst inside,
I screamed so hard up to the sky,
Held my arms out to God in despair but heard no reply.

I’ve always been defined,
By solid faith so blind,
My dis-illusion has now broken me down.
Track Name: Losing My Faith
LOSING MY FAITH
(D.Trigger)

Praying down on my knees,
Have mercy Lord, won’t you help me please?
Craving tranquillity,
My troubled mind needs some clarity, but

I’m losing my faith,
Losing my faith,
Holding out my hands,
I’m losing my faith,
Losing my faith,
Can you understand? I’m losing my faith.

Weighed down by hurt inside,
From all I’ve lost, all I sacrificed,
Too late I realised,
My best intents were all wasted time, now

Break the victim,
Save the guilty,
It’s more than I can take,
Please forgive me when I walk away.
Track Name: Here Comes The Rage
HERE COMES THE RAGE
(D.Trigger)

How do I crack the sky with these broken wings?
How do I take a stand beaten to my knees?

I swallowed shame and disappointment,
The poison burned, my soul decayed,
I lived in fear, shut out the sunlight,
A wounded soldier consumed by pain.

But here comes the rage, I’m breaking my cage,
Getting back in the game,
I wasted years feeling afraid, now I’m not the same,
So move out of my way,
I’m tired of being the victim, now here comes the rage.

Can’t abide watching time slipping through my hands,
Sacrificed half my life making other plans.

I was lost, I drowned in sorrow,
A shadow of my former self,
The fire in my heart had burned out,
But from the ashes I’ll rise again.

All I know, is I can’t hide away no more,
I’ll take control, climb from this hole.
Track Name: I Was A Titan
I WAS A TITAN
(D.Trigger)

Look at me,
Reach beyond my weathered form and frailty,
See behind these sunken eyes,
Though mild and meek,
Don’t mistake my gentle tones and think I’m weak,
Heed the embers from the fire.

In another lifetime, I would walk the frontline,
A firebrand, a rebel soldier,
Deep in the night I hear us cry out.

I would rise, standing tall,
I commanded tens of thousands,
Open fire, hear me roar,
With my fist to the sky,
I seized my time, and I shone with the power of the sun,
I once was a titan.

With these hands,
I have crafted battle anthems, ground my axe,
Raining fury from the stage,
We raised a flag,
To the sound of screaming guitars we’d attack,
Drums of thunder our grenades.

Has your mama told ya all those bedtime stories,
When giants strode across the airwaves,
We stormed the night when we would cry out.
Track Name: Welcome To The Real World
WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD
(D.Trigger)

Crucified again, got myself to blame,
I was stabbed in the back when I gave just a little faith
I shouted to the man “surely this ain't right?”, he said

Look out for yourself, here let me explain,
Take everything you want, that's how the game is played

Welcome to the real world
Here we'll grind your face right into the dirt
Where no-one cares or shows you concern
There's no happy endings
Welcome to the real world

Others can't believe my naivety
I believed in their lies, victimised by duplicity
I called to my friends, they all turned away, they said

You gotta kill your soul in order to survive
The finer things in life go to those dead inside
Track Name: Do You Know Who I Am?
DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?
(D.Trigger/K.Woodhouse)

Hang up the car keys, turn on the TV,
I sit in silence and wait for the night,
Eyes glazing over stare at my picture,
Another lifetime in grey, black and white.

Do you hear me calling?

Oh, can you tell me who I am?
Got lost without direction when this boy became a man,
Oh, still a child behind this face,
And lately I’m a lost soul out of place,
Do you know who I am?

How do I live a full life
With an aching heart?
Gotta find my way now.

Through fire and passion came feat and worry,
A broken spirit where I was once strong,
A new horizon unfolds before me,
A foreign landscape where I don’t belong.

Let me rise from these ashes,
Phoenix from the flames,
Gotta find myself now.
Track Name: Sell My Soul
SELL MY SOUL
(D.Trigger)

You wanna shout me down,
You’re screaming in my face that I am wrong.
I’m standing loud and proud,
You’ll never break my will to carry on.

Just a broken soul walking an open road,
I feel lost and so far from home,
But I rise, I won’t fall,
Let me hear you say “hey”

I can’t give what you want from me,
‘Cause I don’t see things the way you see,
I can’t be all you want and need,
‘Cause I won’t sell my soul.

I walk this world alone,
Don’t answer to nobody else but me,
And half my friends have gone,
Now mindless servants of society.

Just a broken soul but I ain’t letting go,
I’m beat down ‘til my head explodes
But I rise, I won’t fall,
Let me hear you say “hey”
Track Name: Ready To Fly
READY TO FLY
(D.Trigger)

We had weathered the storm for so long,
Endured heartache and pain,
Turned our face to the waves but stayed strong,
Kept our faith through the rain.

In the dead of the night, saw a glimmer of light,
Raise your eyes with hope and chase this new horizon.

The darkness is breaking, watch the sun crack the sky,
We see the world through these brand new eyes,
There’s nothing can break us now we’re ready to fly.

In captivity of fear and self-doubt
We lost sight of ourselves,
Free from gravity that anchored us down,
We broke clear from the shell

In the dead of the night, we both prayed for the light,
Raise your eyes with hope and chase this new horizon.

The darkness is breaking, watch the sun crack the sky,
We see the world through these brand new eyes,
There’s nothing can break us now we’re ready to fly.
Now we’ll take our moment, this is our time to shine,
We’re standing up to reclaim our lives,
The waiting is over and we’re ready to fly.

Up in the open sky,
Where the air is pure and so cold,
We spread our wings and fly to the sun.
Up in the open sky,
Watch our unknown future unfold,
And we’ll never look back again.
Track Name: Rain
RAIN
(D.Trigger/D.D’Andrade)

Climbing to my feet once more,
I stand by what I know is right, but this world brings me down,
Drowning in a pool of hate,
Each man standing on the next, in search of higher ground.

Rocks are torn out from my helpless hands,
I cry in vain to the shore,
Bones are crushed deep into the sand,
My spirit’s broken once more.

Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling down,
I see the rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling down,
Spun my head into a whirlpool, which calls my soul to drown,
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling down.

Staring through the gates of hell,
I see the tortured desperate souls with nothing left to lose,
Losing faith in all things good,
This cross and chain around my neck is feeling like a noose.

Serpents whispering in my ear,
Test my integrity,
Twisted views of morality,
Beat me relentlessly.
Track Name: Close My Eyes
CLOSE MY EYES
(D.Trigger)

If the world should end tomorrow,
I’d play my life back in my mind,
For so long I was caged in sorrow,
Saw wasted moments lost in time.

Paralysed by doubt and fear,
Now it’s time to take the wheel.

I won’t waste my life away, I’ll never close my eyes,
Living like it’s my last day, I’ll never close my eyes.

I have battled with my demons,
I fought to take back my own life,
My silent rage had left me frozen,
Through need of love came sacrifice.

Regret lost time now it’s gone,
I’m waking up, I’m coming home.

Never close my eyes,
Never close my eyes,
Never close my eyes again,
Track Name: Personal Asylum
PERSONAL ASYLUM
(D.Trigger)

Since I can remember,
I have lived my life detached,
With my face pressed to the glass,
Scraping demons off my back.
And I’d cry out,
Hammered on these walls of air,
Padded cell from my despair,
Reaching out but no-one’s there.

Can you see me?
Can you hear me?
Can you save me?
Before I lose my mind.

My personal asylum,
I’m isolated, captured and restrained
By this burning in my brain,
Tormented by contention,
I’m ravaged by my chronic fear and shame,
Manifest as toxic rage.

Every day’s a battle,
I wanna tear my brain stem out,
I wanna rip my hair and shout,
Venom pouring from my mouth.
I’ve been praying,
Keep looking to the sky with hope,
Through steel bars of my window,
Come save me from this darkened hole.
Track Name: Pendulum
PENDULUM
(D.Trigger/D.D’Andrade)

When you fall, when you bleed,
Remember life’s a pendulum,
When you’re lost and in fear,
Don’t lose your faith.

Paralysed, terrified, never felt this way,
Can’t sustain all this pain, not for one more day.

As the cracks start to show on my face and in my head,
I hear these words my mother said,
And they comfort me.

When you fall, when you bleed,
Remember life’s a pendulum,
When you’re lost and in fear,
Don’t lose your faith.
In the dark of the night,
Remember life’s a pendulum,
Watch the sun start to rise,
Just keep your faith.

Shackled wrists bleeding fists pound the barricade,
Spread my wings just to soar to the next blockade.

When I’ve lost all my hope and I feel I’m better dead,
I hear these words my mother said,
And they comfort me.
Track Name: Reach Out
REACH OUT
(D.Trigger)

You’re battered down for the hundredth time,
It’s not your fault, there’s no reason why.

They’re telling you
(Hey hey) No-one believes you,
(Hey hey) Nobody sees you,
(Hey hey) There’s no-one to hear you scream.

Reach out for hope, reach out for love,
Open up so you don’t feel so helpless and alone,
Reach out for love.

Their twisted words cut like a knife,
A stupid game to make you cry.

They say to you,
Hey hey) No-one believes you,
(Hey hey) Nobody hears you.

Reach out for hope, reach out for love,
Open up so you don’t feel so helpless and alone,
Have some faith, confide in someone,
You will find that new horizon,
Through your darkest night will shine the dawn,
Remember you are not alone.

Reach – out (reach our for love)
Reach – out (reach our for love)
Reach – out (reach our for love)
Reach – out (reach our for love)
