Depression 01:36
I’ve run in circles all around it so many times that there’s a hole in the ground and me, and everything I tried to protect is falling through it. The hole just keeps getting deeper this way. Here’s irony for you: Depression is a funny thing. This trench I have dug to protect my castle is so deep that the ocean came and flooded the land around, and now I can’t see the shore anymore.

Glory 03:27
Risk it all, to win nothing. Risk yourself, to become something. Reach out your hand, And grab that golden crown. But there is a price to pay, You are going down G – L – O – R – Y You need to give blood to drink gold, G – L – O – R – Y You need to give it to be sold, G – L – O – R – Y If you don’t give they won’t take, G – L – O – R – Y And then they will say you were a fake! Risk it all to form something Risk yourself to become your dream Reach out your mind, And leap out of your hole The road you pave might be your final goal G – L – O – R – Y You need to give blood to drink gold, G – L – O – R – Y You need to give it to be sold, G – L – O – R – Y If you don’t give they won’t take, G – L – O – R – Y And then they will say you were a fake! Let us rise and lift a toast to those who tried, Who thought and fought, Who dreamed and tried again.

The moon is cold and dark, I’m standing alone in the park. There’s no one here but me, And it’s you I want to see. Oh sweet sweet angel from down the road, I used to be a prince but now I'm a toad! The thing that would save me, Is you walking by, Oh give me a kiss so I can finally die. Darling I love you ever so much! And darling I miss your human touch! Darling, oh angel, please come back to me! Everywhere I look only toads I can see! In your arms, I had more dreams then teardrops! In your eyes, I held the world on hold! And as the skies, Are falling all around me, I will remember what you told me… (You said:) Never give up! I’ll always be there! And even if I'm gone, I didn’t go anywhere.

There is no satisfaction In the action There is no satisfaction In the action Of There is no satisfaction In the action There is no satisfaction In the action Of Hurting your fellow man My guns are full of black powder Your body is full of life I may take your life today my friend But it’s me that I sacrifice There is no solution In destruction There is no redemption In revenge So if I throw the stone of anger And you shoot the shot of hate Tell me who will tell our children What our lives really meant No one is a victim here No one here is innocent We are all in it together

First the muSic came in just to p a s s the T i m e Earphones In me PuMpInG fUmPiNg All the T i m e The muSic In my HeaD, To control my soul, The muSic In my EarS, To control my thoughts, The muSic In my walkman so I can control it ALL. You can feel iT PuMpInG FuMpInG ALL around, Reality is muted when the music’s on! I sink into my head, I drown into my soul to concentrate on the goal. Now the music’s stronger than my ears can BeAr, my head is throbbing but I just don’t care. The music IN my Mind has taken on my will! i’m hooked, sounds and rhythm, this cannot be real! I cannot think without IT, I cannot concentrate... The colours in my HeaD Are music’s FAbrication, The music In my minD, controlling my IMAGination! And as I Write these Words, I Hear, I have No mind, And IT is All because: MUSIC’S MY MiNd!!! MUSIC’S MY MiNd!!! MUSIC’SMYMiNd!!! When the music's playing feel your body loving you

I will miss the way we were in evening times, I will miss the way I held you in my eyes, And the way I felt with you; But mostly, most of all, I will be missing you.

Great Hopes 02:31
Great Hopes I was born a man, A man with no tales To tell his little kids When he came back home late. I grow up a man, A man of many tales... But family have I none No one to tell my tales. I died a man, A man of many songs, But children had I none To sing my songs upon...
