Track Name: Ten Hills
Ten Hills

Four walls no freedom
You been holding on too long
One system trying to break you
Behind the iron bars you roll

And you run
And you hide
Two wings to fly
And you rise
And you break
Till you finally see the light

Ten hills to climb
And you’re running with the night
Ten miles to run
Till you reach and cross that line
Ain’t gonna hold you down
Nothing’s gonna change it now

Now you feel the hour’s coming
You been thru it all before
You approach the magic moment
And you’re never gonna stall

And you run
And you hide
Two wings to fly
And you rise
And you break
Till you finally see the light

Ten hills to climb
And you’re running with the night
Ten miles to run
Till you reach and cross that line
Ain’t gonna hold you down
Nothing’s gonna change it now
Track Name: Angels fall
Angels Fall

Like the wings of Icarus
Angels dark and light
Rose on high victorious
They tumble into night
Sealing wax and stolen fletch
Can't construct a faith on lies
Hubris is the sun's embrace
Death's pain the angel cries

They will fall like a stone
And their cries will darken the sky
All will see their plight
The end of might
Angels fall
To the ground
The weak shall inherit the Earth
They will just fade away
No other day
When Angels fall
Track Name: Sacred Ground
Sacred ground

Waiting standing at the crossroads
Trying to go the right one
Thousand prying eyes
All looking at me

Wayward feel the spirit call me
And the earth my mother
Tells me yet again
To lay my head and

Climb the highest of mountains
Touch the sun when I rise
Feel the power that holds me
‘cos I’m walking on sacred ground
Walking on sacred ground

Mystery of this life surrounds me
Wanna find a reason
Ear to the ground
My mind is loaded

I won’t listen to the preacher
Telling me to hold back
Gotta find my own way
Leaving here to

Climb the highest of mountains
Touch the sun when I rise
Feel the power that holds me
‘cos I’m walking on sacred ground
Walking on sacred ground

Tell me what is this I’m holding
Ground
I stand here and feel it moving
Track Name: False Paradise
False paradise

Eve sucks the life out of Adam
Creeps like a snake on a cold grey floor
Shylock longs for his pound of flesh
The wolves run wild

A million lives torn asunder
The devil’s breath blows at your door
The queen rubs salt in the king’s open wound
Blood on the tiles

And the fathers of greed
Have a thief for every child
Avarice the light
In your false paradise

Cain is the slayer of Abel
Lost in a moment of treacherous plight
Release the monster that dwells inside
The stakes are high

And the darkness thrives
When the claw reaches high
Create the divide
In your false paradise

Clutch at the ring of power
Scepter high and a heart in stone
Avarice flows thru your veins alive
The price of a lie
Track Name: Satan's Bride
Satan’s Bride

With the mist she rises
Cold as the air and the falling wind
She glides towards death’s passion
Hunger in her eyes

Victim of damnation
Eyeing her love thru a window pane
She longs for his blood like thunder

Passion
Feel it rising
Longing to strike

Satan’s bride
Stands at the gates of Heaven
Cold fire
She prays for release from Hell
Her heart is as black as the night

Entombed in her grave of cold earth
No sun no light forever again
The mark of the one unholy

Memory
A life long past
Slowly subsides
Track Name: Left Behind
Left behind

Unwise in mind
Stormy days and sunken eyes
Wild child unkind
Way to go kill your kind

No eyes to see
Where the way will lead
A sacrifice to set you free
Why don’t you

Tell me what it’s like
When all your life has passed you by
Tell me what you find
To be the one who’s left behind

One last sunrise
Prelude to your dead-end road
One train to nowhere
Time to do what you’ve been told

A broken mind
In a ring of fire
A sacrifice to save your soul

Tell me what it’s like
When all your life has passed you by
Tell me what you find
To be the one who’s left behind
Buried by your hate
When the day is done you’re cold and dry
Tell me where you’ll hide
When you’re the one who’s left behind
Track Name: Other Side of the Medal
Other side of the medal

I’m looking for wisdom
Borne in a wave of misunderstanding
One voice one name
That tells the story
Engraved in stone
Do I ask too much
Do you even care

What is wrong with the life I lead
What is wrong in what I believe
What is wrong is you can’t see
The other side of the medal

Cold steel rain never ending
Eyes open wide but seeing nothing
And when you hide
Behind the blindfold
You can’t erase
All the deeds you done
All the sins you share

What is wrong…..

Sway in the wind
Get away
Change the colour but
Not the paint
Dry as a bone
Try to fade
Standing in line
Till you waste
Broken and tired
Broken inside
Wither and die
Fade into night
Track Name: Witchhunt
Witchhunt

His struggle, his shame, his hate and lies
His symbol on innocents hidden by night
Crime, hate crime, his own
He paints his world in greys to mirror his soul

His misery needs company
His pain needs release
He takes his pleasure
In smashing the peace

This sad man, this lost man
His anger his strength
Searches for a reason
in pain

Go, go now,
to find
a rope to hang and flame
to burn up
and so
he cries
burn the witches tonight.
We’re gonna burn the witches tonight

He appears, through time, and time again
Tearing through scapegoats with joy uncontained
Crime, hate crime, his own
Raping in hate disguising his soul

His misery needs company
His pleasure is your pain
He takes your measure
To start it all again

This mad man, this sad man
His anger his fall
Searching expression
in pain

Go, go now,
to find
enough rope to hang and fire
to maim
and still
he cries
burn the witches tonight..
He’s gonna burn the witches tonight
Track Name: Redemption
Redemption

Dust on your trail
Dry desert sky
A vision like addiction
Skin is burning dry

Devil’s riding behind you
On this barren ground

Road is wearing you down
Can’t keep running
Storm is coming
Now you’re worn and tired
Like a wayward son
Showing no redemption
No redemption

Sand filling your eyes
Wind is howling loud
No cross, no holy water
All forsaken now
Riding into the sunset
On this shaken ground

Road is wearing you down
Can’t keep running
Storm is coming
Now you’re worn and tired
Like a wayward son
Showing no redemption
No redemption
Track Name: Fading
Fading

Life like an open book
Worn by the hands of time
Tell me the story
Of the scheme of things
Let me know when the answer unfolds

Gone like the wink of an eye
Withered and I’m asking why
Slip thru my fingers
Like a grain of sand
While the candle’s melting down

Are we fading into sunlight
Or just fading till the end of time
Are we blowing in the four winds
Are we fading into night
Are we fading into night

Stand at the water’s edge
Staring out at the great divide
The sons and the daughters
Who came and went
A universe of life
Track Name: Under my Skin
Under my skin

Suicide’s angel’s waiting
Eternity seals my fate
Numb but elated
Each time leaves a stain

Colour me crazy
Colour me blind
Stun me amaze me
With all of your might
I feel you closing
In for the kill
I feel you creeping
Under my skin

Deadly sweet caresses
Alive still I’m dead
I love you I hate you
By blood we are wed

Colour me crazy……

Empty promise
A poison divine
Senses on fire
My desire

Black widow lover
You float you hover
No patient mother
Too weak to fight
