1. Blank File (4:09)
It is your new best friend,
new eye in your private den.
And you can find the world inside it every day.

They know what you did today,
hear everything you say.
And when they send you mail,
they know where you will go sometime next day.

They know your life,
they have a file about you.
They built your life!

So they know what you like and know what you yearn,
but they don't know a thing about me.
I'm not that easy, blank file in their memory.

Caught in the web again,
inside your private den.
Where you can go to moon,
or meet some people you will never see.

You are a file in there,
money in an open fair.
You're a slave among the slaves,
waiting for the future with a fear.

They know your life,
they have a file about you.
They built your life!

So they know what you like and know what you yearn,
but they don't know a thing about me.
I'm not that easy, blank file in their memory.

Still they try to take over,
control my life.
But no one can do it but me.
I'm not that easey, blank file in their memory.

Know what you like and know what you yearn,
but they don't know a thing about me.
I'm not that easy, blank file in their memory.

I am waiting,
hoping and praying,
to see how this will end,
when they go down.

How can it be that you cannot see,
what they are doing with thee?
You are a life, new file in their memory

Now they know what you like and know what you yearn,
but they don't know a thing about me.
I'm not that easy, blank file in their memory.

How can it be that you cannot see,
what they are doing with thee?
Spending your time, living your life.
Inside their machines there is one empty file...

It is me!
2. My Land (4:48)
My own land has closed its gates on me.
All alone in the world, it's scaring me.
I am here to prove you wrong,
I'm accused of something I live for.

In my dreamland, there's one who understands.
A friendly soul, trusting life in my hands.
Yes, I gave it all I can.
Now it's invaded by a stranger.

Keep in mind what you have heard today,
you might find that you're not so brave.
Are you man enough to carry the load all alone,
when other have your own?

My old land is but a pile of sand.
Cold and bare but something still is there.
Yes, I gave it all I can.
Now it's invaded by a stranger.

Keep in mind what you have heard today,
you might find that you're not so brave.
Are you man enough to carry the load all alone,
when other have your own?

I'm a true patriot, you are my land!
You have my soul, you have all I had.
Now I am here and I want it all back.

In my dreams I climb the hills I see,
and let a gentle breeze lead me to,
plains I once have seen and clear blue sky.

I swim in lakes I find!
I build a house right there,
that you can't take away.

I am here to claim my land!
you can't keep me away forever!

Keep in mind what you have heard today,
you might find that you're not so brave.
Are you man enough to carry the load all alone,
when other have your own?

Are you man enough to carry the load all alone,
when other have your own?
3. 8th Commandment (3:46)
All those lies suit you!
They are custom made,
to drive you out of reality.

Lies are true for you,
You know what you do,
is reaching a point of insanity.

When you wake from your dream,
you know what is true?
Ring of bell inside your head,
is playing with your mind.

Remember to pray and what the Bible says,
and you will live through eternity.
You haven't heard of this,
there's something you missed?
It will cost you so heavily.

You must sleep,
in the stinking bed that you have made.
When you're down where you belong,
hear what they say.

Stay for a while, stay forever.
Sing for the times,
you are bound to betray.

Run for your life, run forever.
Your eyes tell a lie,
and the liar must always die.

When you're done with him,
you know where you have been.
He will treat us all equally.
Can you feel the fire burning?

You must sleep,
in the stinking bed that you have made.
When you're down where you belong,
hear what they say.

Stay for a while, stay forever.
Sing for the times,
you are bound to betray.

Run for your life, run forever.
Your eyes tell a lie,
and the liar must always die.
4. Replica (5:04)
I'm home again, I won the war,
and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law,
see the meaning of it all.

Remember me, before the war?
I'm the man who lived next door.
Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me,
I'm pieces of what I used to be.
It's easier if you don't see me,
standing on my own two feet.

I'm taller when I sit here still.
You ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me a heart of steel,
the kind them bullets cannot see.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica, I'm a replica.
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me.

The light is green, my slate is clean.
New life to fill the hole in me.
I had no name, last December.
Christmas Eve I can't remember.

I was in a constant pain,
I saw your shadow in the rain.
I painted all your pigeons red,
I wish I had stayed home instead.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica, I'm a replica.
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me.

Are you gonna leave me now,
when it is all over?
Are you gonna leave me,
is my world now over?

Rising from the place I've been,
and trying to keep my home base clean.
Now I'm here and won't go back, believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream,
I'm floating in a silent dream.
No one placing blame on me,
but nothing's what it seems to be.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica, I'm a replica.
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm not myself, I'm a replica.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica!
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm a replica.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica!
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm a replica.

Nothing's what it seems to be!
I'm a replica!
Empty shell inside of me.
I'm a replica of me!

I'm home again, I won the war,
and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law,
see the meaning of it all.

Remember me, before the war?
I'm the man who lived...
5. Kingdom for a Heart (3:47)
What the Hell are you standing there for?
Expecting me to help you when I'm down myself,
waiting my saviour.

My world is flooding over!
there's no room for air, I can't breathe!
I would give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give a kingdom,
for one more day as a king of your world.
I'd give a kingdom for one more day.

What the Hell am I waiting here for?
Expecting you to come and give away your life,
just for a moment of my time.

Have a hole where I should have a heart.
I'm made of wood, I'm falling apart.
I would give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give a kingdom,
for one more day as a king of your world.
I'd give a kingdom for one more day.

I'd give it all for a heart!
If I was a king I would give away my kingdom.
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing.
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart!

Now I know I will never love you,
I'm a man without a heart.
I'm not allowed to feel human feelings.

I'm king of the land, I'm a ruler of seas.
I'd give it away in one moment,
if I only had one moment.

I'd give a kingdom!
I'd give a kingdom!
I'd give a kingdom,
for just one more day.

I'd give it all for a heart!
If I was a king I would give away my kingdom.
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing.
If I only had a heart!

I'd give it all for a heart!
If I was a king I would give away my kingdom.
Treasures and crowns wouldn't mean a thing.
If I only had a heart, if I only had a heart!
6. Fullmoon (5:12)
Sitting in a corner all alone,
staring from the bottom of his soul.
Watching the night come in from the window.

Window!

It'll all collapse tonight,
the fullmoon is here again.
In sickness and in health,
understanding so demanding.

It has no name,
there's one for every season,
makes him insane to know.

Running away from it all!
"I'll be safe in the cornfields", he thinks.
Hunted by his own,
again he feels the moon rising on the sky.

Find a barn which to sleep in,
but can he hide anymore?
Someones at the door!
Understanding, too demanding.

Can this be wrong?
It's love that is not ending,
makes him insane again.

She should not lock the open door!
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore.
She sees the change in him but can't,
see what became out of her man.

Fullmoon!

Swimming across the bay!
the night is gray, so calm today.
She doesn't wanna wait!
"We've gotta make the love complete tonight."

In the mist of the morning he cannot fight anymore.
Hundred moons or more, he's been howling!
Knock on the door and scream that is soon ending,
mess on the floor again!

She should not lock the open door!
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore.
She sees the change in him but can't,
see what became out of her man.

She should not lock the open door!
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore.
She sees the change in him but can't,
see what became out of her darling man.

She should not lock the open door!
Fullmoon is on the sky and he's not a man anymore.
See what became out of her man!
7. Letter to Dana (6:23)
Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
Cause your father passed away,
it was a beautiful day.

And I don't want to bother You anymore.
I used to hope you'd come back,
but not anymore Dana.

My eyes might have betrayed me but I have seen,
your picture on the cover of a filthy magazine.
And I think my heart just cannot handle that.
Dana, my darling, would be so bad.

Dana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
Your mother passed away,
it was a really rainy day

And I didn't mean to bother you anymore
Your mother wished:
Come visit your fathers grave, Dana.

Your father disowned you because you have sinned,
but he did forgive you in condition he was in.
And I hope you won't do those things anymore!
Dana, my darling, I'm waiting for!

Little Dana O'Hara, Dana my dear!
How I wish that my Dana was here.
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day,
to travel away.

Faraway!

No, you can't surprise me anymore.
I have seen it all before!
But it seems I cannot let you go!
Dana, Dana, Dana, Dana!

And I think that I told you,
I'd wait for you forever.
Now I know someone else's holding you,
so for the first time in my life I must lie!

Lie's a sin, mess that I am in.
Love is not the thing I feel now!

I promise you:
I won't write again,
until the sun sets behind your grave.

Dana, Dana I'm writing to you.
I heard you passed away,
it was a beautiful day.

I'm old and I feel time will come for me.
My diary's pages are full of thee!

Little Dana O'Hara, Dana my dear!
How I wish that my Dana was here.
Little Dana O'Hara decided one day,
to travel away.

Faraway!
8. UnOpened (3:13)
Another misspelled rhyme,
written in the book of time.
In one page I've spent all my life.

Ink ain't even dry.
I've been living in a lie?
How could I trust in someone of your kind?

And I got today another letter in the mail,
I can't read it here,
not today.

And when years go by,
the unopened letter meets my eye.
I'm older and wiser, but still afraid.

What if I read it and it is full of love?
How can I face it if I am wrong?

Do you feel, do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?
I am here, would you come and find me?
Does your writing guide me through this all?

What if I read it and it is full of love?
How can I face it if I am wrong?

Do you feel, do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?
I am here, would you come and find me?
Does your writing guide me through this all?

Do you feel, do you care about me?
I am here, would you come and find me?

Do you feel, do you care about me?
Did you wait and love me all this time?
I am here, would you come and find me?
Does your writing guide me through this all?
9. Picturing the Past (3:35)
In a house where no one never sleeps,
lays a man who sees more with his eyes.
Picturing the past before him,
in a bed, alone with clothes on.

Paying for a service he doesn't really need!

With his eyes, he sees more love and lust.
More tears, far too much to handle.
Can't tell a soul, not this time.
They'd lock him right up!

Too much of burning bushes, too much for his weak soul.
In his mind, so jaded, he's gone too far behind,
of all the visions seen, this one makes him scream.

He cannot live neither die in this world.
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life.

With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time.

Don't look behind,
or you will fall through the time.

Only time can make you see behind,
of the curtain hiding the secret.
Your time is up when you see the light.

You can live as a noble man,
but when time you won't be left behind.

With the sound of time ringing in his head,
he leaves the house where no one never sleeps.
Job well done knowing that at least one will be pleased.

Hiding is always useless,
pictures will fade with time.

Seeking for a winner of the day,
prize of life is here,
Of all the visions seen,
this one makes him scream.

He cannot live neither die in this world.
Burning sensation inside, you know how that hurts?
Making up for the crimes of your life.

With scythe as your sword,
you must fight 'till the end of time.
10. Destruction Preventer (7:45)
I'm at home where my coat's hanging,
I'm a shepherd of the rising sun.
I believe and trust in my land,
I control, I am in charge of everyones future,
red button is mine!

Miss the times when I was roaring,
in the center of all mankind.
I said how they should live their life.
I controlled, I was in charge now.
I thought the red storm would rise and destroy us all.

Heat in the center, destruction preventer.
If you release one, you release 'em all.
You can't defend her, kneel down and surrender.
Your end is at hand, if they blow.

If you go and have their way now,
you will never have your choice.
Catch a breath of air in your lungs,
it might be you never get to,
do it again because this is the end.

Yesterday I saw a light,
moving fast across the sky.
Now I see a glow left and right.
Stars are falling down tonight, I fear.

And the pouring rain, eating my green grass,
leaving a stain.
Never healing back to be the same.

Now tell me who won here tonight?
The price of winning worthless fight.
We'll make the same mistakes again.
Unless, this is truly the end.

Heat in the center, destruction preventer.
If you release one, you release 'em all.
You can't defend her, kneel down and surrender.
Your end is at hand, if they blow.
