1. Lead The Way
You can see me but can you see yourself?

Fight for freedom fight for war fight, doesn't matter what you stand for
Fight for nothing fight for fame, never knowing you put us to shame
So pick your conscience up from the floor
You betrayed it for so long, what are you fighting for?

...yourself or for everything?
So how can you tell us how to act when you don't know who you are?

You can see me but can you see yourself?
Let the lantern of passion lead the way
Let the lantern of passion lead the way

Fight for yourself, fight for your pride, do anything you can to deny
Fight for the right to fight, fight, as long as you can do it in spite
So pick you oppinionated mind apart
And remember, once you had a heart

Your heart is on fire
Fighting for any cause you can blame for your own mistakes
You lost your desire
Now aware that the flames consumed you completely
You are an empty shell full of hate
Walk towards the light
The lantern of passion will give you back your life

Fight for yourself, or fight for nothing!
Fight for nothing and fight for everything
Your oppinion becomes obsolete
Your cause has become to promote yourself
And nothing else

You can see me but can you see yourself?
Let the lantern of passion lead the way
Let the lantern of passion lead the way

For yourself or for everything?
So how can you tell us how to act when you don't know who you are?

Die!
2. Scarecrow
You hover above and I can do nothing but stare
As your greedy black eyes search and glare
The skies turn grey and then you will come
Black scavengers of the night
I loathe you with my entire strawfilled heart
You have come only to pick a fight

You grusome creatures are the only company I have
To you I am a place to sit, while you ignore my wrath

The loneliest scarecrow in the world
Proud but useless you are
The loneliest scarecrow in the world
Crows, pick me apart! So someone will fix me again

I am nothing to you, lonely scarecrow, but I have feelings too
It is funny how humans are very much like me, are you like me?
I am nothing to you but lonely scarecrow, but I have feelings too, do you?
It is funny how humans are very much like me, are you like me?
It is funny how humans are very much like me

The loneliest scarecrow in the world
Proud but useless you are
The loneliest scarecrow in the world
Crows, pick me apart! So someone will fix me again

Pinned to a tree destined to live my eternal life
With nothing left but crows by my side
Slowly picking me apart, to bring me peace
So you'll fix me, human contact brings me relief

And after I've been fixed I will hang here with them
Waiting for them to pick me apart so I can be fixed again
So we live in a malevolent never ending game of sin
I need the creatures in order for my life cycle to end and begin
3. Snake Of Eden
The snake creeps around in your paradise, tasting the air, sly creature of Eden, cunning as the devil himself.

It watches you in your happy place, pushing you around a bit, there by your side at your best moments when they turn to your worst
When it turns your best into your worst

From the beginning there was a snake
Chewing on your conscience from within
But were you really not aware that all along it was your own private sin?

It watches you in your happy place, pushing you around a bit
There by your side at your best moments when they turn to your worst

It is so easy blaming everyone else for your choices
But your priorities are your own
It was so hard to consider our choices
But in the end our priorities are our own

Nobody is perfect, even Adam and Eve were fooled by the snake in you
Slithering, deceiving, denying yourself and everyone else the truth
I am sorry that your winning streak didn't last
But it was you who threw it away
The stakes were high and no one thought
You would be the one to betray

You blinded yourself

Friendship has been fading, you didn't pay attention to their cries
Did you not care or was it not worth a try?
Maybe something else caught your eye
Not realising the snake was you not I

You were here in your happy place, puhing everyone around a bit
There by your own side at your best moments
And you turned them to your worst

Nothing left to say now but goodbye
