Track Name: Sunlight Through The Mist
Leave me out here in the open, leave me out here all alone.
Leave me out her in the mist now and I won't be coming home.
Leave me here clenching my fists now, walk off into the night.
I know I can get through this like sunlight through the mist.

I'm on a precipice, one step and I might fall.
I know I'll get through this like sunlight through the mist.

Drop me down into the canyon, leave me down here in the dark.
I'll use my heart to light my pathway, use my mind to make a spark.
Walk in darkness, seeing nothing, in my mind I see it all.
Looking back, I'll tell you something,
You let me go, I didn't fall.

I'm on the precipice, one step and I might fall.
I know I'll get through this like sunlight through the mist.

A cloud has fallen down over my eyes,
A mist has fallen on my life.
The cloud now rises, showing my way clear.
I feel the sunlight wash away my fear.

Walking out into the light now, Path is clear in front and back.
I know I'm better off without you, you fucking remember that.

I'm on the precipice, one step and I might fall.
I know I'll get through this like sunlight through the mist.

A cloud has fallen down over my eyes,
A mist has fallen on my life.
The cloud now rises, showing my way clear.
I feel the sunlight wash away my fear.
Track Name: Pieces
All the pieces black and dead,
All the thoughts inside my head,
Cold and lonely in my bed,
All the things the voices said.

All the voices laid the curse,
In my head in hating verse,
I can't speak but my lips are pursed,
Every voice just makes it worse.

All the pieces, all the pieces,
Lying on the floor.
All the voice, all the voices,
They all want more and more.

Blackness shrouds me, the voices crowd me,
Hell forsakes me, God just hates me.
Excommunicated, universally hated,
The purest soul is tainted,
The broken pieces lie black and cold.

All the pieces, black and cold,
Residue from a time of old,
All the voices they have told,
To the dark my soul is sold.

All the pieces cold and dead,
From my veins the blood has bled,
On the path to hell I tread,
The voices wish that I were dead.

All the pieces, all the pieces,
Lying on the floor.
All the voice, all the voices,
They all want more and more.

Blackness shrouds me, the voices crowd me,
Hell forsakes me, God just hates me.
Excommunicated, universally hated,
The purest soul is tainted,
The broken pieces lie black and cold.
Track Name: My Own Way
All my life I've lived for someone else,
Putting my own problems,
Away on the shelf.
I just want to be able to live out all my dreams,
Amongst the pain that's ripping my life
Open at the seams.

(Chorus)
I don't want to live for you,
I don't want to do the things you do.
Tomorrow is a brighter day and
I want to live it my own way.

I don't want to live for someone else,
I want to live just for myself.
Tomorrow is a brand new day and
I want to live it my own way.


I see all the horrors, they wake me from my sleep.
All the leaders go to war,
We follow them like sheep.
We cry for them, and lie for them, even die for them,
As they dictate all our lives.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Slipping
I feel myself slipping, slipping away.
I feel myself falling, falling into a deep black whole,
And I'll never see the light of day again,
If I can't look into your eyes.
I just want to slip away and die.

I want to live my life, whilst I want to die,
And I want to tell you something I don't even know myself,
So I sit quietly in the corner of my mind,
As I just waste away inside.

I feel myself slipping, slipping away,
And I feel myself crying,
And as the tears roll down my cheeks I think that I
Don't want to live for one more second,
Without you by my side.
The sea will take my body with the tide.

I'll never see the light of day again,
If I can't look into your eyes.
I just want to slip away and die.

So I sit quietly in the corner of my mind,
As I just waste away inside.

So I don't want to live for one more second,
Without you by my side.
The sea will take my body with the tide.
Track Name: Virtue and Reward
People look at me and see,
Something that I ought to be.
I'm not that man, I will not change,
My mind and life you rearrange.

My mind is cold, my heart is numb,
The time for talk is all but done.
Take a good look and then you'll see,
You do not know what lurks in me.

(Chorus)
You cannot see behind my eyes,
Can't see what lurks behind my smile.
Evil blackens and decays the hearts of men,
In many ways.
You cannot see what's in my head,
Can't see what lurks inside my mind.
Put down the pen,
Take up your sword,
Evil our virtue,
Pain our reward.


People look at me and think,
I'm moving closer to the brink.
And when I fall, where will I go?
And what will I have to show?

My mind is cold, my heart is dead,
From your hell I've often fled.
Take a good look and then you'll see,
The evil deep inside of me.

(Chorus)

People look at me and hear,
All the bad things and the fear.
I try to tell them that's not me,
But they have a certainty.

My heart is cold, my mind is lost,
Covered with a deadly frost.
Take a good look and then you'll see,
The hell that you bestowed on me.

(Chorus)
Track Name: Root Of All Evil
I feel sorry for us working bums,
All our tax gets paid to scum.
We're out at work whilst they just sit,
On their arse at home, on benefit.

We get old whilst they get fat,
And it gets me to thinking that,
We kill ourselves to make money,
When idle fuckers get it free.

Money is the root of all evil,
All that matters is what your bank accounts equal.
Hear me right and get my gist,
I don't want to be a communist,
But our government don't care about the people,
And money is the root of all that is evil.

Lawyers4you and Claims Direct,
Spout propaganda from my TV set.
Sue fell over and was in pain,
She's only got herself to blame,
Whilst our insurance prices soar,
And what the fuck am I working for?
Just fall over in a railway station,
And claim two mil' in compensation.

Money is the root of all evil,
All that matters is what your bank accounts equal,
I'm getting pretty sick of this,
I'm paying out hand over fist.
The government is robbing the people,
And money is the root of all that is evil.

They ban that and they ban this,
But they don't care, it's politics.
They ban things 'cos people fuss,
So they ban it, just to shut them up.
The emergency services are a mess,
And don't get me started on the NHS.
Where does all the money go?
It's our tax, we'd like to know.

Money is the root of all evil,
All that matter is what your bank accounts equal.
I get my pay cheque, pay the rent,
Pay the bills and then it's spent,
'Cos they tax our pay, they tax our cars.
Well, they can take their tax,
And shove it up their arse.
