Track Name: For the Money
Kneel for the money
Feel for the money
Die for the money
Sell the sky for the money

Fight for the money
Ignite for the money
Rape for the money
No escape from the money

Kneel, Kneel,
For the money
For the pretty penny

On your knees !

Pray for the money
Slay for the money
Lie for the money
Don’t ask why for the money

Disconnect for the money
Genuflect for the money
Control for the money
Sell your soul for the money

Kneel, Kneel,
For the money
For the mighty Dollar

Is life complicated enough ?
Can you leave home without it ?
What’s really in your wallet ?
Was that a smart move ?
Does your intererest come first ?
Do you invest in people ?
Are you along for the journey ?
And who is stronger together ?

You’re sooooo money super-target !

Kneel, Kneel….
For the money
For the mighty Dollar
Track Name: Shadows
"Shadows" lyrics by Nathan Jon Tillett

See the faces, faces in your mind
The strangest places, places you wont find
You feel the memories of a lifetime ago
You'll find them buried deep, deep within your shadows.

See the corridors, dimensions unexplored
But where lies the golden key, to that one final door ?

It's just out of reach, but you know that it's there
Like a long lost knowing, in a cold strangers stare
Seems to be no meaning, time stops in its flow
You'll find it sleeping, deep within your shadows.

Hear the voices, voices in the air
The dreams of lightness, darken to nightmare
You feel the closing, a distant fading glow
You find you're all alone, trapped within your shadows

"Here we are all, by day; by night we're hurl'd
By dreams, each one into a several world" *

See the faces, faces in your mind
The strangest places, places you wont find
You feel the memories of a lifetime ago
You'll find them buried deep, deep within your shadows

* taken from the poem "Dreams" by Robert Herrick
Track Name: In Darkness
Afar In the distance, a mountainous peak
The pinnacle viewpoint, denied to the weak

[Verse 1]
Imprisoned in his darkness,
Acquitted in the light,
Counting tears in blindness,
With his totem’s second sight.
Demonic in his image,
Angelic in the heart,
Misreckoned in his spirit
but fathomed in the art.

[Chorus]
In darkness
In darkness
The darkness of the soul

[Verse 2]
Pain doth bar the windows,
And fear doth bolt the doors,
The portals now are lost to him,
From the lifetimes before.
The vessel bows before him,
A chalice of full of time,
Now it holds but dry sand
Where once it flowed with wine.

Chorus

Solo

[Verse 3]
Shadows casting long across
The spoils of this tomb,
He feels the last few rays of life
Expiring from the moon.
The time it now approaches
The reckoning hour,
A silent soul surrender
Be relinquished of the power

Chorus

[Verse 4]
His tired eyes close finally
As time and space do bend
The fuels of his body burn
And mass reaches its end
A bright soul supernova
Of light it leaves behind
A cataclysmic firestorm
in the cosmos of the mind

Chorus

[Verse 5]
The darkness, the darkness
The darkness of the soul
The darkness, the darkness
The darkness of the soul
The darkness, the darkness
The darkness of the soul
The darkness, the darkness
Imprisoned in the darkness of the soul
Track Name: To Hell with Tomorrow
People say “learn from the past” and “plan your future well”
But I can’t see beyond today, tomorrow I can’t tell

Well, there’s no time like the present moment, to do the things that you want, yeah

People say “take your time”, “there’s all the time in the world”
But I can’t wait, to make that climb, to see my life unfurl

Well, there’s no time like the present moment, so kiss your history farewell
And there’s no breath like the one you’re taking, so send the future to hell
To Hell with Tomorrow

People say “slow yourself down”, “Don’t burn your candle out”
But I can’t stop, I’m too far gone, tasting what life’s about

Well, there’s no skin like the one you live in, so be the person you are, yeah

People say “don’t spend it all”, you’ll need it more one day
But I can’t help it, and if I need it, I guess I’ll play for pay

Well, there’s no time like the present moment, so kiss your history farewell
And there’s no breath like the one you’re taking, so send the future to hell
To Hell with Tomorrow

[Solo]

“Face the future, heed our mantra, place your deeds in trust”
Well, there’s no point building an iron fortress, when all your dreams turn to rust

People say “don’t be a fool”, “You might live to regret”
But I don’t hear them, and I don’t fear them, just wanna live and forget

Well, there’s no point crossing the finish line, without a story to tell
And there’s no breath like the one you’re taking, so send the future to hell
To Hell with Tomorrow
Track Name: What.To.Think.
When the world was simple
When I was a young boy
I played…..I played with dreams

Then the world grew colder
When I was a young man
I ran…ran
Far away…
With my dreams…stowed away

But then they caught me, held my flight
I screamed inside “don’t take my dreams away” !

[Solo]

Come with us, you’ll be safe here
Clear you mind but have no fear
Free yourself from childish fantasies
Leave behind those foolish dreams
Put your faith in our machines

Come with us, we’ll show you
Not how, but What. To. Think.
Stay with us, we’ll teach you
Not how, but What. To. Think.

Stay with us, we’ve sealed your fate
Don’t set foot beyond that gate
Come to terms with your own boundaries
Leave behind your illusioned friends
We’re all you need, your mind we’ll cleanse

Come with us, we’ll show you
Not how, but What. To. Think.
Stay with us, we’ll teach you
Not how, but What. To. Think

What to think ?

How do I think ?

Get outta my head !

I’m me, I’m me, I’m me

[Solo]

Now I’m free, I’ll show the world
Not “What”, but How. To. Think.
