Submitted by level 록스타
1. Time for a Change (1:36)
2. One World at a Time (4:08)
What's the force that leads us all
To live our lives as we're supposed to do
Or makes us waste all our time
Waiting for better times that never come

If we want to feel closer to God
We should raise our eyes to the sky more often
Then we can live a story that is surely true
Because we have lived it all in our minds

I believe this world is still full of good times
You can be sure I want to have them all
It's nice of you to care if I'm ready for the next world
Sorry, mister, I will take one world at a time

You think you live your life in circles
Oh, how do they open and close
When your mind goes beyond the structure of cycles
You will understand our lives move in coils

Why are you so scared of your instinct?
A wonderful force that you should always follow
It will make you ready for your next life
When you understand you never have been for this one

Should we fear an eternity of torment
While we can make our hell on earth so damn well?
Or should we think that displayed virtues
Won't buy us any better seat in the next life?
3. Be King or Be Killed (4:34)
There are times you feel like
If you don't start to understand
How your mind really works
You'll never be able to survive yourself

That is when you'd better stop
To think that you are somehow doomed
And realize that what happens to you
Should be regarded more like a boon

It is the right time to break up
With the past and superstition
Break up with destructive habits
And negative thoughts
Evolve, change, evolve
It's time to be king or be killed

Brave are those who stay alive
Our only chance's to be strong and fight
Brave are those who stay alive

There are times you feel so desperate
You could sell your soul to the devil
It seems that one thing's not clear to you, son
They can make you give it away as a present

It is the right time to break up
With the past and superstition
Break up with destructive habits
And negative thoughts
Evolve, change, evolve
It's time to be king or be killed
It's time that I break up
With my past and superstitions
Break up with destructive habits
And negative thoughts
I will evolve, change, evolve
It's time to be king or be killed
4. Let There Be Fire (4:26)
Let there be fire, let it burn wild
Let there be fire, let it rage out fierce
Liquors strong like molten lead
Burn down the poor believer's throat
Does he know about elevation?
Does he know about purification?

Being an artist all your life
Being an artist as a full time job
Letting poisons corrupt your body and soul
Allowing their rotten air to desecrate your temple
Only to ascend a higher level of art
(Only) to achieve the best of what you can do

I am the Earth, still I am the Fire
I am the Earth, on which the Fire can run wild

Let there be fire
Let's all find out
What is this buzz all about
Let there be fire
Let it mold your soul
Like clay, wax or the hand of some god above

Let there be fire
Let's all find out
What is this buzz all about
Let there be fire
Let it mold your soul
Like clay, wax or the hand of some god above

Do those people know what happens to you
When you're all alone, struggling with Art?
Do they know this could be them, me or you?
5. Hic Sunt Leones (6:19)
So here we are again, a new painting in an old frame
So many things have changed, yet we are still the same
Still our hunger is the best way to fight all that's fearsome
Still our dreams and passion seem to be stronger than wisdom

Recklessness is the force that makes you say:
"Thanks for all your efforts, world, but I'm still alive!"

Bravery is not how many fights you want to fight
It's all you realize you have survived when you're looking back at your life
You won't lose your honour if you die while trying to feel alive
There are still too many who fall without even knowing why

Recklessness is the force that makes you say:
"Thanks for all your efforts, world, but I'm still alive!"

Live day by day
Think like you were eternal

Running at breakneck speed with the clouds on your side
And a distant gleam of sun ahead
Will you be able to run faster
Than the storm once again
There will always be some sucker warning you:
"Hic Sunt Leones!"

Comradeship is not if different heads can somehow fit
It's still looking at each other's face after passing through so much shit
You know you are strong and smart enough to face the change
When those who thought they're leaders only work to get themselves estranged

Live day by day
Think like you were eternal

Running at breakneck speed with the clouds on your side
And a distant gleam of sun ahead
Will you be able to run faster
Than the storm once again
There will always be some fucker trying to scare you:
"Hic Sunt Leones!"
Running at breakneck speed with the clouds on your side
And a distant gleam of sun ahead
Will you be able to run faster
Than the storm once again
There will always be some sucker warning you:
"Hic Sunt Leones!"
6. Wrong Side of Sanity (4:42)
Sick and tired of being sick and tired
Of my own being sick and tired
I don't know what I'm aiming for
All I see here around of me
Is our best dreams crushed down by their feet
And I know, this ain't meant to be

I am trying to come to terms with my past
But it will bear its scars forever
Being a borderline is so trendy today

The edge you walk on is oh, so steep
What will I find down there?

I'm walking on the wrong side of sanity
It's a place I know so well
Where I can play the bipolar shuffle

I have learnt throughout my life
Our mind's so strong it can trick itself
And I wonder, if that's good at all
My skin tells of who I am
This doesn't mean the story must be nice
Pretty child, come watch my downfall

The edge you walk on is oh, so steep
What will I find down there?

Cure me, clean me, I will get sick again
Soothe me, heal me, then give me a gun
I'll shoot again

The edge you walk on is oh, so steep
What will I find down there?

I'm walking on the wrong side of sanity
It's a place I know so well
Where I can play the bipolar shuffle
I'm verging on the funny side of lobotomy
Stepping on the morbid side of lucidity
So I can play the bipolar shuffle
7. Feathers to a Bird (4:37)
You know you might have pushed yourself too far
When you realize that even saying
A simple sentence as: "I am unhappy"
Has become so hard for you

You know things have reached the point of no return
When you can't understand anymore
If the quiet, silent vastness of the Ocean is still a friend
Or if it has become an enemy

You give me love
And you take my freedom away
You call it love when it makes you feel fine
You call it love when it makes you feel like dying

Take my fears, take my demons and my tears
Take my shouts in the night
Take my never sent love letters
Turn them into feathers
So I can use them to fly

I have no more desires left
But to be the melody you hear through the noise
Like feathers to a bird my voice will fly to you
And help us fill the void

Take my fears, take my demons and my tears
Take my shouts in the night
Take my never sent love letters
Turn them into feathers
So I can use them to fly

You give me love
And you take my mind away
But you never call it love, my friend
If it doesn't make you cry and bleed
Sometimes, just sometimes...
8. Warmight (4:03)
Father, father, why are they attacking us?
There needn't he a reason why
We'll fight hack without a cause

Father, father who is attacking us?
There needn't be a name or face
Wanna do well? Give 'em hell

Man is wolf to men
Who are wolves to other men
Who are less wolves then they are
Hatred is disease, retaliation is the cure

War is meaningless
If we have no enemies to fight
If the enemy and war are inside our heads
What is the reason why we display our warmight?

It's a me against you
Against him who is against
Who knows who world
War can be a blitz
Ignorance is bliss
But arrogance will never stop being so chic

Father, father, will they keep on coming back?
If you want a safe peace
Keep on fighting 'till they're wrecked

Father, father, is this all right or wrong?
If your flag waves in the end
Your name will be sung in a song
War is meaningless
If we have no enemies to fight
If the front and defence lines are inside our heads
What is the reason why we display our warmight?
War is a business in itself
9. I've Chosen My Poison (3:27)
It's the same old setting, only the actors change
If I offer you a Jack and Cock, will you blow my soul away?
Just forget what the preachers say
You can get close to Heaven
Only with a man who's got a Hell inside himself

It starts as a tickle in your head
It crawls down your spine just like a thrill
Then it burns out like a fire
Right between your thighs

Shake it or leave it, this is my Ass O Ass
The truth lies in the sweat
So kill me with your bitter sweet death tonight
Shake it or leave it, this is my Ass O Ass
The truth lies in the sweat
So kill me now, I've chosen my poison

You make me feel like some kind of saint
In a triple X-rated haze of Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Yet if the body is a temple, then yours was clearly made
For violation, so give me head 'til the end of time

You've got all your life baby
But I've only got tonight
I can never get enough
Of that diving in your muff

Shake it or leave it, baby, yeah!
I've chosen my poison
10. Once Were Immortal (4:18)
No matter how old or wise we can be
No matter if they call us sir, your honour or PhD
There are monsters that still live under our bed
They bite and snarl and drool and scratch
With fangs that rip and shred

No more: "Lay me down to sleep"
'Cause no one else could my soul keep
But if you'd die before I wake
To hell with you my soul you can take

The years that pass by will not make us grow old
Wisdom comes along with the scars on our bodies
With the wrinkles on our faces, the wounds in our souls
And the empty, lonely, desperate looks in our eyes

There can never ever come the day
The price we've got to pay seems fair
They once were immortal, now they're old and frail
The tears of a forlorn child still there

No matter how rich or successful we could get
No matter if people look at us in fear, awe or regret
Deep inside us there still lives a child
That won't stop crawling on all fours
Looking for a place to hide

Growing up turns into growing old
All of our dreams only turned to hopes
No place for compassion
Only sadness and decay
11. Full Circle (4:13)
If you think that your God has forsaken this world
Come with me, I can show you where he has gone
While we were so busy looking for the meaning
Of existence that we forgot what it means to merely exist

I have lived so many lives
Does it mean I must be ready to die?
Come Full Circle, when the Age of the Lions returns

One thing that nobody will ever tell us
Is that going through reincarnation can hurt so much
But if the sky fell on my head today
I know I cannot die, 'cause I'm an idea, so I'd not be afraid

No one really changes, that's the curse of us all
But while we evolve, what we are isn't really getting lost

I have lived so many lives
Does it mean I must be ready to die?
Come Full Circle, when the Age of the Lions returns
After living so many lives
Can we finally be ready to die?
Close the Circle, let the Age of the Lions return

Let it return
