Time is a River Time is river it wants to lose control time is a winner it wants lick my bones I want to lose it I didn't choose this I won't confuse it can I prove it? when he's rolling out to sea and you're changing with the leaves when the day turns into night take his hand he's always right Time is a river it gets your heart and soul time is a winner and then it wants some more I want to waste it so I can taste it I can't replace it can I face it? When he's rolling like a stone and you're sinking into drink when the night turns into day get behind him he's ok Chords Verse: E, D, E Chorus: A

Endless War 03:27
Endless War In your little ease Imprisoned, Frozen vision Cuckolds crack Come back as Tasteless, racist rapists In a spin Lost for all words And burned What you claim Pleased to remain In chains We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands In the streets Complete invasive, safe Complacence Starry eyed Inclined to mindless Trite contrivance In a bind Won’t wonder why You whine What you say Pleased to deny and lie We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands Incomplete entreating thieves to fleece conceited dreams of life or death bereft of zest a pest In a jam about all that I can stand what you want pleased to belong and wrong We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands We’ve got an endless war We’ve got an endless war On our hands Chords: Verse: D A Chorus: G A

End Of Faith 06:32
End of Faith This is the end of faith The poisonous talking snake Freedom at last Chains of the past What took so long to write this song? You’ve come a long long way but this is our day This is the end of faith the lie with the human face sin without God isn’t it odd? just failed the test it’s for the best You’ve come a long long way but this is our day Like a debt followed through overpriced but overdue This is the end of faith the dawn of a golden age dream a new dream love a new love unlock your mind make friends with time You’ve come a long long way but this is our day Chords Verse: B, B5 Chorus: E Bridge: F#, E

In With the Out Crowd We are the one true way We’re all the rage You used to speak freely Now you feed the beast Bleating sheep fill the streets with real sensitivities Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd We are the true victims and we get no respect offering new perspectives Some would say regressive Speak for God hide the girls O brave old world! Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Because we love death Because we love death Because we love death Because we love death Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Get in with the out crowd Chords: Verses: Emaj7 B Dmaj7 B Chorus: Amaj7 Dmaj7 Bridge: B Emaj7

Sweet Libertine In the showers in the shadows she's a demon she's the measure of your dreams lend her your eyes find what it means like a first kiss she's a secret she's an angel when I hear her purr and moan hard as a charge straight to the bone she's like a toy the way she spins around the world the yes girl she's like a toy the way she spins around the world the yes girl In the basements in our bedrooms she's a lover she uncovers everything lend her your mind find what it means like a first love she's a secret she's a rebel when she takes on our whole gang into the groove into the bang she's like a toy the way she spins around the world the yes girl she's like a toy the way she spins around the world the yes girl Sweet Libertine Sweet Libertine...

Spirit shadows I would like to lighten my load Awful dreams I burn explode Like a vagrant Like a refugee Like a savior Your penitent In the basement An epiphany It's contagion a new despair I lie uncrucified I lie uncrucified I lie uncrucified I lie uncrucified

Ooh La La 04:02
Ooh La La Summer came torched my heart left me cold drowning heat melting feet makes me bold hey girls, let's unwind entwined lace and pretty face escapists see the way we shine like a new valentine and the way we talk like a 'cock-of-the-walk' Ooh La La Ooh La La Summer shame touched my heart like a dart frowning streets dizzy beats it gets dark hey girls, I insist more bliss sheer lust, pleasing all enthralled see the way we shine like a new valentine and the way we talk like a 'cock-of-the-walk' Ooh La La Ooh La La Chords Verse: Dmaj7, Bm, Em, A Prechorus: Em, A

Creatures 05:48
Creatures I am a man I am a beast a grain of sand a creature of ease I take the beauty I do my duty I'm on the inside always the right side Creatures of denial you're a creature Creatures of denial you're a creature Creatures of denial you're a creature I am a man I am a god a creature of shame you are the pain I state my dictum I blame the victim I'm on the outside I make the world cry Creatures of denial you're a creature Creatures of denial you're a creature Creatures of denial you're a creature Chords Verse: Dmaj7, A Bridge E

Dark Age 04:35
Dark Age Some people just want to die for something Some leaders of men oblige them In a cave any lies will do And the temperature's rising too Some say this is your dark age Some say the truth is what you feel Some say this is our dark age I say zombies are real Some people need someone else to hate Some need to be tempting fate in a place where there's no escape must be some other human race Some say this is your dark age Some say the truth is what you feel Some say this is our dark age I say zombies are real Some say this is your dark age Chords: E. D
