Track Name: A Very Deep Hole
The best things in life are free
With a sprinkle of misery
Who knows where we’ll end up in the end

Better grab it all by the horns
Even though there may be some thorns
The fire of life will be our friend

Every night we bare our souls
More than you would ever know
You look right into our minds

Surveying all before us
You can see right through it all
There a soul in a Very Deep Hole

You want to get in the news
Then it’s time to pay some dues
Lets get this circus on the road

Get to see from the other side
Are you ready now open wide
Don’t mind the black train coming through
Track Name: Zombies
Zombies! They're invading the coast
Some of them boat in
Most of them surfin' cos they're cool
Zombies! They like to go to the beach
With the wind in their hair
Their skin starts to tear and they get angry

Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, habbblallalaabgagagahhharrr
Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, habbblallalaabgagagahhharrr

Zombies! They're misunderstood
They like to eat your brains
And they leave some stains but deep down they're good
Zombies! They're playing volleyball
With their limbs in the air
They just don't care there goes his head

Zombies! They like to eat your friends
It's a small price to pay
You didn't like them anyway there goes his head
Zombies! The pestilential horde
where did they come from?
What do they want, do they have claws?

Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, habbblallalaabgagagahhharrr
Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, Zombie motorboat, habbblallalaabgagagahhharrr
Track Name: Sentinel
I can see the problems as the white lines pass by
With the clarity of a broken shell
Remember what has been learned before the cause is denied
Avoid the light that falls on the sentinel
The sentinel

On call and long haul
The semi-circle is waiting for you
Turn on, tune in, rip off all the dead dog skin
The identity of the enemy is the one on the big small screen
Or is it me, or is it me?

Take your ticket and make your way up to the waiting room
Where the elders sit down and plan the maze
Roll the dice for all those concerned and finish off this cheap cartoon
Tackle the lies in the eyes of the sentinel
The sentinel

On call and long haul
The semi-circle is waiting for you
Turn on, tune in, rip off all the dead dog skin
The identity of the enemy is the one on the big small screen
Or is it me, or is it me?

The sentinel watches over you
It watches us until we're through
So make you wear a smile
'Cos we could be here a while
The sentinel watches over you
Track Name: Into The Abyss
High and mighty in the tower of their reflection
Fools in white surrender their free will
Sit around in marble chairs
Discussing what they did at their end

Show them how to spit
Teach them how to sin
Watch their downward spiral
The pit is their way in
Nurturing their ills
All sins and wickedness
Following the piper
Into the abyss

A long way down beneath their feet
We are in embers with those who think
Contemplating the stupidity of humans
Continuing with what we do best

In the twilight on the eve of their redemption
They've read the opus but it's all in vain
Sending out to their guardians in the nether
Echoes of relics hanging the air
Track Name: Without Apology
If there's evil in your mind
Don't keep it locked behind your eyes
Someone will always find
Just what it is you try to hide

Trying to keep inside
Some cracks will show as deep-set lines
Fractures in my calm
A twisted story is my path

I'm inside, I'm inside
Contemplating my own life
Cast aspersions
Draw the curtains

Internal rage that tries to shout
A burning hunger that wants out
Clawing at my mind and heart
A score of people queued to start

Unseen monsters of my dreams
Sent out to fulfill my schemes
Watching as the panic spreads
Evil walks where my mind treads

I'm inside, I'm in side
Contemplating my own life
Cast aspersions
Draw the curtains
Track Name: Omen
This is The Omen, this is our last stand
We are forsaken and it's time to shine
Time to worship at the snake oil shrine
Do you see, through me?

Come to the junction, time to make your choice
Don't lose your function, you still have your voice
And it's the red mist of a thousand times before
Therefore I plead

From the shadows comes the guiding light
Is it the answer or a chance to fight
Can you please, free me?

In the end the way is never clear
All that's certain is the wall of fear
And it's the fuel on the fire of all time
It's the seed

It's the day of reckoning
Can you hear it beckoning?
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
There's a lot to answer for
Killing man with metaphor
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
Track Name: Straw Man
We beg for your mercy
No movement on your face
Dipped in controversy
Your brittle carapace

No need to run
No need to hide
The straw man burns
The end is nigh
End on a high
The straw man burns

The waters are boiling
You sink without a trace
The wolves have been toiling
So let us make some space

No need to run
No need to hide
The straw man burns
The end is nigh
End on a high
The straw man burns

The dust is now clearing
Time to get on the case
What is it we're hearing
Another pointless race

No need to run
No need to hide
The straw man burns
The end is nigh
End on a high
The straw man burns
Track Name: Holier Than Thou
I was born in the middle
Black train got heavy metal

Looking down from your tower
Over us lord your power
At the top keep on rising
Road block no compromising

I was born in the middle
Black train got heavy metal

Everywhere leather chairs
Steely stare but you never care
Keeping spaces for friendly faces
All is fair at the races

I was born in the middle
Black train got heavy metal

Looking down from your tower
Over us lord your power
At the top no compromising
Road block but you keep on rising

I was born in the middle
Black train got heavy metal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sometimes I feel like the only one
Think I might be the lonely one

Because I'm Holier Than Thou!

I was born in the middle
Black train got heavy metal
Track Name: Porcelain God
So here now comes that time again
Where you don't know what's where and when
Catching up on where you've been
Wouldn't be complete without sin

Yeah yeah yeah
Get the liquor out

Could this be your happy day
Or could it all end in disgrace
It's time to follow the yellow brick road
Where it leads to I don't know

Yeah yeah yeah
Get the liquor out

He looks up there and straight through me
I don't know that it is he sees
There's just something he's got to try
Over the edge but can he fly

Yeah yeah yeah
Get the liquor out
Track Name: Speedway
Burning Bridges that are mine to burn
Going too fast to take a turn
It's always close behind
The nightmare
A past that’s ever reaching through
Never escape the thought of you
Lived for causes
Romantic vision

Architects of our own demise
Fireworks waiting to light the sky
Alive with fear from
Days gone by
Hidden secrets are waiting to ruin
My reputation's all smoke and fumes
Nothing to say to my
Old Self

Darkened days are coming down
Distant storms on horizon
Running away on
The speedway
Fire-eyes are they truly mine
Locked away that memory mine
This is where I
Draw the line
