Welcome to the Ball Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Abandoned (4:15)
I'm waiting around 'cause I haven't got paid yet
I'm banging my head on the side of the pavement
You're turning this into some kind of freak show
You gotta stop, I'm still waiting

Abandoned again
I thought you were my friend
Abandoned again
I thought you were my friend but you abandoned me again

You're flying your colors for all to see
You're fooling you're friends but you ain't fooling me, no
You closed the door and shut me out
What the hell ya' think I'm talking about?

Abandoned again
I thought you were my friend
Abandoned so what?
Knife in my gut
No love is lost
Out of the grey, just go away

I've heard it all, enough of your bullshit
About your mouth, it's time you closed it
You've burned all your bridges, there's nobody left

Abandoned again
I thought you were my friend
Abandoned again
I thought you were my friend but you abandoned me again
2. You Only Live Twice (3:38)
So many ways to get lost in the haze,
So many choices to make
Whatever you choose
You've got something to lose
And you don't want to make a mistake.

Time passes by in the blink of an eye
And you've hardly the time to think clear
With time running out and the end drawing near,
I will fight for what's right while I'm here

You only live twice,
The story never ends,
You only live twice.

The ignorant youth keep ignoring the truth,
Running blind even though they can see.
Just like the old, growing heartless and cold,
losing touch with their reason to be.

Living the part, coming right from the heart,
All a piece of the puzzle of life.
Plotting a course that could end in remorse,
Seems as though it was all meant to be.

You only live twice,
The story never ends,
You only live twice.

Now out of time, it's the end of the line,
and the light at the end now is clear.
So when it unfolds and the story is told,
Be ready to face all of your fears.

Time passes by in the blink of an eye
And you've hardly the time to think clear
With time running out and the end drawing near,
I will fight for what's right while I'm here

You only live twice,
The story never ends,
You only live twice.
3. Savior From Anger (4:08)
Hate is a killer in breeding frenzy
Growing faster becoming deadly.
Wake up, together. C'mon fight the beast:
Tyrant control in the Middle East

Poison, power. Driven by fury
Digital dictator, blackened expropriator
Deliver us from evil. Save the people
Contagion of hatred must be eliminated

Savior,
Save us from anger
Put to the test
Will we ever know?

The hunter, an animal without emotion.
Mechanical destruction, methodical corruption
Wake up, can't you see, the peace and harmony
Is there if you want it

Savior,
Save us from anger
Put to the test
Will we ever know?
4. Children (4:56)
Children, finish what we started.
They may only live in the world we give them.
Children, will they be brokenhearted?
They may never know what they're missing.

We gotta take it easy,
We gotta take it slow,
We gotta leave 'em something
Somewhere to go.

All the children are the heirs (children are the heirs)
Taking what we give them.
Will they even care, (will they even care?)
Or will they do what we did?

Children, staring at the ocean
They just want to play in the water -- but it's black.

We gotta take it easy,
We gotta take it slow,
We gotta leave 'em something
Somewhere to go.

All the children are the heirs (children are the heirs)
Taking what we give them.
Will they even care, (will they even care?)
Or will they do what we did?

We are all the victims of our heavy hands
Who will make the children understand?

Children are the heirs (children are the heirs)
Taking what we give them.
Will they even care, (will they even care?)
Or will they do what we did?
5. Dust to Dust (4:20)
The hands of time have brought you here,
It's a long hard road to burn.
The hidden fire of liife has come unturned.
The river runs, you've just begun,
To set a course to nevermore,
Lay down your tracks upon the shore.

Moving on from dusk 'til dawn,
Passing by the years
It's dust to dust for you my friend from here

Living on the planet's web,
It can take you down anywhere you tread.
Emotions in motion paving the way,
Trying to make it through another day.
Your soul is caged, you can't deny,
You never know when your time lies.
You're here and gone, like all the rest.
Walking the line between life and death

Moving on from dusk 'til dawn,
Passing by the years
It's dust to dust for you my friend is near

Moving on from dusk 'til dawn,
Passing by the years
It's dust to dust for you my friend is here!
It's dust to dust for you my friend is here!
6. Raise Your Hands (4:02)
Remembering those years, emotions so black
They're cracking the whip, you yearn to strike back.
Days filled with anger and nights filled with pain,
They'll pay the price for their worthless games.

Raise your hands (raise your hands)
Take a stand, you'll be free.
A new world stand
Fight for your lives, make them see.

Driven by hatred, a passion so dear.
The nighttime is stirring, the new world is near.
The morning awakens.
Revenge in their eyes.
To tear down those visions of years gone by.

Racing like demons, we move into fight.
The onslaught is breathing with muscle and might.
Bashing and crashing, the battle hymn roars.
Roaring like thunder, right to the core.

Raise your hands (raise your hands)
Lay down your life to be free.
The new world stands (Raise your hands).
Screaming out equality.

Driven by hatred, a passion so dear.
The morning awakened, the new world is here.
You've paid the price for your worthless games.
Reach out your hands and take hold of the reins.

Raise your hands (raise your hands)
We've taken a stand to be free.
A new world stands (raise your hands).
Screaming out equality.

Driven by hatred, a passion so dear.
The morning awakened, the new world is here.
You've paid the price for your worthless games.
Reach out your hands, take hold of the reins.
7. Strange Behavior (4:08)
Yesterday was so long ago.
The sun's coming up again.
And the bottle that we drank so slow
Part of no master plan.

Hey, it's that time again,
To pay with your flesh,
And you looking down on me,
Now time for you to see.

(Strange) Strange behavior
Coming over me again.
(Strange) Strange behavior
That's just me and my friends.

What I do and what I say
Well baby, that's my choice.
And I choose to be free.
Can you hear my voice?

Hey, it's that time again,
To pay with your flesh,
And you looking down on me,
Now time for you to see.

(Strange) Strange behavior
Coming over me again.
(Strange) Strange behavior
That's just me and my friends.
8. Six Stepsisters (3:31)
Oh those girls just wanted to play.
All in one body, they drive me insane.
Never encountered a love so cold.
Over and over and over they go.

I couldn't take her screaming like that.
Six tortured souls in one body trapped.
They fight to control the tought of one brain.
Blood-thirsty kin one in the game

Six stepsisters play the game.
Two in the night, two by day.
One says she loves me, one wants to kill me.

I've never felt a feeling like that.
The sex is so dirty, I like it like that.
Three at one time, one's on the floor.
The two that are lovers they always want more.

I couldn't take her screaming like that.
Six tortured souls in one body trapped.
Blood-thirsty kin one in the same.
Lying there bleeding, calling my name

Six stepsisters play the game.
Two in the night, two by day.
One says she loves me, one wants to kill me.

The things we've done --- Six times the fun.

I couldn't take her screaming like that.
Six tortured souls in one body trapped.
They fight to control the tought of one brain.
Blood-thirsty kin one in the game

Six stepsisters play the game.
Two in the night, two by day.
One says she loves me, one wants to kill me.

Six sick little sisters all in one brain.
Oh it ain't so bad!
9. Mastermind (3:55)
Blind leading the blind,
Indolent nation, stagnation, they lay in repose,
Silently cursing the lives that they chose.

Planet of remote control,
Automation will breed indignation -- a matter of time.
Nothing for you to decide.

No more reasons to think for yourself anymore.
It's under control.

Mastermind
Will choose and decide for you.
Not one thing
Left for your brain to do.

Wake up toughtless again,
Mindlessly glance at the paper that's already read,
Searching for something to fill the void in my head.

I look around only to find
The essence of life has been taken away from mankind,
Leaving our life blood behind.

No more reasons to think for yourself anymore.
What am I for, tell me.

Mastermind
Will choose and decide for you.
Not one thing
Left for your brain to do, it's wasting away.

It's okay, better off this way.
Having all your choices made.
No mistakes, no room for error.
Life without life, the ultimate terror.

Mastermind
Will choose and decide for you.
Not one thing
Left for your brain to do.
Mastermind
Will choose and decide for you.
Mastermind, please,
would you do away with me too?
10. When Love Comes Down (4:58)
I should have seen it in your eyes,
The feelings trapped inside
You kept it hidden oh so well,
All the pain you must have felt.

I tried to tell you on the phone yesterday
I wanna be there for you now

I'll be there
When love comes down,
Alone no more

We're just strangers in the night
That drift away.
Reach out, come on, babe
Won't you reach out, take my hand?
We'll never drift away again

Just like I tell you on the phone everyday,
I wanna be there for you now.

I'll be there
When love comes down,
Alone no more
When love comes down

Don't ya' know that you're a part of me.
And this you can't deny
'Cause when we kiss, we just can't hide
Just look in my eyes.
Take me away.

When love comes down,
Don't run away, don't run away, don't run
We can go to the other side
When love comes down.
Got to have your lovin', oh
When love comes down.
I'll be there, you know I will,
When love comes down.
Got to have love, got to have love,
Got to have your love baby.
11. Ends of the Earth (3:13)
Ever since you can remember,
As far back as your memory will go,
Life has been nothing but fear, haunted.

Nowhere to run,
Got to find a way out of this place.
Back to the wall, no way out.
Is this the end of the chase?

No, no, I won't give up 'til I fall.
If i have to run to the ends of the Earth
I'll be damned if I'll crawl.

Like an animal,
Living in constant unrest,
Watching each step that you take,
Hoping it won't be your last.

Nowhere to hide:
Searching for some place to go,
Living each day just moments away,
Fearing what destiny holds.

No, no, I won't give up 'til I fall.
If i have to run to the ends of the Earth
I'll be damned if I'll crawl.

Hot on your heels,
Dancing with life on the edge,
Hot breath on the back of your neck,
Learn how the kiss of death feels.

How your head reels,
Footsteps away from the end.
I can't go on anymore.
Give me the strength, give me the will.

No, no, I won't give up 'til I fall.
If i have to run to the ends of the Earth
I'll be damned if I'll crawl.

No, no, I won't give up 'til I fall.
If I have to run to the ends of the Earth
There I will stand tall.
