Track Name: Carry On
Pushing yourself; testing the limits
Seeking the door to fit the key
But no one makes you live this way
No one takes the blame
Pressure extreme; smashing the boundaries
Flooding the spaces in your mind
But can you turn the tide away
Can you take the pain

Setting your goals higher and higher
Standing tall in other’s eyes
But never can you deviate
It’s the price you pay
Suffering through day after day
Never reaching your destination
Ambition has made you a slave
It’s driving you insane

The walls you built within
Are crumbling away
Do you have the strength
To face another day

The world around you closing in
Madness coming on
Day by day is rushing past
Sanity is gone
See the hell that you’ve been through
Take a look around
Pride always outlasts the pain
You’ve got to stand your ground
Carry on

Feeling betrayed; claiming unfairness
A heart full of sorrow and regret
Will you turn your grief to rage
Can you make the change
A question of trust; finding a balance
Gaining an inner symmetry
Satisfied with what you’ve gained
Learning self-acclaim

The walls you built within
Are crumbling away
Do you have the strength
To face another day

The world around you closing in
Madness coming on
Day by day is rushing past
Sanity is gone
See the hell that you’ve been through
Take a look around
Pride always outlasts the pain
You’ve got to stand your ground
Carry on
The world around you closing in
Madness coming on
Day by day is rushing past
Sanity is gone
See the hell that you’ve been through
Take a look around
Pride always outlasts the pain
You’ve got to stand your ground
Carry on
Track Name: Touch the Sky
In the gray light before the dawn
I breathe the mountain air
A sea of peaks surrounding me
Where only eagles dare
A lofty goal lies ahead
A means to an end
Anticipation filling me
Let the journey begin

Ambition fuels the flame
A passion burning deep inside
Exhaustion quickly fades
But pride will last a lifetime

As the valley opens up
Before me I see
A vision of majestic beauty
Calling out to me
A summit for the bold indeed
Though many more desire
Standing tall amongst the clouds
Soaring ever higher

Ambition fuels the flame
A passion burning deep inside
Exhaustion quickly fades
But pride will last a lifetime

Touch the sky
Exhilaration fills my mind
Touch the sky
A sense of freedom now I find
Touch the sky
A world of problems left behind
Touch the sky
My spirit soars; I am alive

Passing treeline, I realize
A timeless world awaits
Oblivious to lives of men
An unforgiving grace
From the heights, a cold wind blows
Across the open slopes
Breathing life into the land
Filling me with hope

Ambition fuels the flame
A passion burning deep inside
Exhaustion quickly fades
But pride will last a lifetime

Touch the sky
Exhilaration fills my mind
Touch the sky
A sense of freedom now I find
Touch the sky
A world of problems left behind
Touch the sky
My spirit soars; I am alive

Now I’m fighting the thinning air
With every step I take
Climbing higher, the danger grows
Another chance to take
I carry on through force of will
In the end I find
Standing tall amongst the clouds
The victory is mine

Ambition fuels the flame
A passion burning deep inside
Exhaustion quickly fades
But pride will last a lifetime

Touch the sky
Exhilaration fills my mind
Touch the sky
A sense of freedom now I find
Touch the sky
A world of problems left behind
Touch the sky
My spirit soars; I am alive
Track Name: Welcome to Fear
Suddenly awake in the dead of night
The tangled sheets, a pounding heart
Anxiety descends as the dream lingers on
A premonition of your world come apart
A conscience of guilt for imperfect crimes
Lost in a world of ambition and greed
Trusting the schemes and elaborate lies
Now facing the chance the truth is revealed

Confidence is washed away
Security erodes with each passing day

Welcome to fear
The retribution
Awakening the demon inside
Welcome to fear
Your time has ended
The nightmare has come to life

Pressure intense, the walls closing in
Desperately seeking a means of escape
Pacing the dark, your mind in turmoil
Unable to bear the results of mistakes

Blinded by the power in your mind
Leading to destruction of your life

Welcome to fear
The retribution
Awakening the demon inside
Welcome to fear
Your time has ended
The nightmare has come to life

Welcome to fear
The retribution
Awakening the demon inside
Welcome to fear
Your time has ended
The nightmare has come to life
Track Name: World of Lies
I remember as a boy
Young and so naïve
A life of work and diligence
Would bring prosperity
In the modern world we’ve changed the rules
Forgetting what we’ve lost
Laws are bent and money taken
Never mind the cost

Dishonesty
Breeds quietly
Our human race
Falls to disgrace

Can I live in a world of lies
Can I believe in anything
We follow on the blind man’s lead
Not that you care anyway
Is there nothing left for which to stand
Where no one has a right or wrong
Can I live in this world of lies
I ask myself how can I go on

A man alone, struggling on
Sees a better way
He waits to strike and justifies
He’s a victim anyway
A litigating profit-seeker
No one understands
This trend they caused, out of control
Society’s gone mad

Dishonesty
No morality
Our human race
Falls to disgrace

Can I live in a world of lies
Can I believe in anything
We follow on the blind man’s lead
Not that you care anyway
Is there nothing left for which to stand
Where no one has a right or wrong
Can I live in this world of lies
I ask myself how can I go on

When we have fallen so far from grace
There will come a time we’ll see our mistakes
In every darkness a new dawn appears
Will we find the strength to conquer our fears

Can I live in a world of lies
Can I believe in anything
We follow on the blind man’s lead
Not that you care anyway
Is there nothing left for which to stand
Where no one has a right or wrong
Can I live in this world of lies
I ask myself how can I go on
Track Name: Broken Dreams
Many years ago
I made a decision
A change that wrecked my dreams
And I’ve no one else to blame
But the man in the mirror
The face I see before me

A child so filled with fear
Hiding from failure
The pressure built inside
With my back against the wall
Emotions taking over
To my dreams, I said goodbye

Broken dreams
Now I count the cost
Broken dreams
And I realize what I’ve lost
I’m a man with broken dreams

Everyone makes mistakes
But a wise man learns from others
The past cannot be changed
All my childhood dreams are gone
But fate will bring another
The hope will keep me sane

Broken dreams
Now I count the cost
Broken dreams
And I realize what I’ve lost
I’m a man with broken dreams
Broken dreams
Now I pay the price
Broken dreams
For the rest of my life
I’m a man with broken dreams
Track Name: Keep the Flame Alive
Years rushing by and I’m feeling the changes
That time has forced upon me
Innocence fading with every new day
Imprisoned by mortality
Shadows of pain are lingering on
Reflections of the aging within
Fighting a war that’s never been won
I will resist until the end

Learning to live again
No, this is not the end
Remember

Even in our darkest hour
There will come a dawn
Find the flame of hope inside
Where all had once seemed lost
Life, it needs not fade to gray
With the passing time
Resurrect the will to live
And keep the flame alive

Balance I seek of body and mind
My sanity is tied to each
Changing routines, I’m changing my fate
The power of will rules destiny

Learning to live again
No, this is not the end
Remember

Even in our darkest hour
There will come a dawn
Find the flame of hope inside
Where all had once seemed lost
Life, it needs not fade to gray
With the passing time
Resurrect the will to live
And keep the flame alive

Even in our darkest hour
There will come a dawn
Find the flame of hope inside
Where all had once seemed lost
Life, it needs not fade to gray
With the passing time
Resurrect the will to live
And keep the flame alive
Even in our darkest hour
There will come a dawn
Find the flame of hope inside
Where all had once seemed lost
Life, it needs not fade to gray
With the passing time
Resurrect the will to live
And keep the flame alive
Track Name: Reflections
As I look into the mirror
A familiar face I see
But do I really know
The man behind it
I pause for just a moment
A break in my routine
To open up the doors
I’ve closed inside me
Just below the surface
Obscure memories
The hope of finding truth
Of knowing myself
To discover hidden meanings
Lost inside a dream
A chance to see within
Where I’ve been blinded

Fading in and out of my consciousness
Remnants of my past forgotten

Reflections
Shadows of my soul
Reflections
Growing quiet as I grow old
Reflections
Echoes of the past
Reflections
In the end, it’s all we have

Looking back on my past
Drifting through the years
A sentimental Journey
That fills a lifetime
Roads that I have traveled
The things that I have seen
Searching for an answer
But where to find it

Fading in and out of my consciousness
Remnants of my past forgotten

Reflections
Shadows of my soul
Reflections
Growing quiet as I grow old
Reflections
Echoes of the past
Reflections
In the end, it’s all we have

Wandering through this world
The path no longer seen
Looking in the mirror
I cannot hide it
Yet deep within my memories
Is the answer that I seek
A pride that now reminds me
Of the man that I am

Fading in and out of my consciousness
Remnants of my past forgotten

Reflections
Shadows of my soul
Reflections
Growing quiet as I grow old
Reflections
Echoes of the past
Reflections
In the end, it’s all we have
Track Name: Premonition
Awakened in the night
Fear runs through my mind
Was it all just a dream
Or the future have I seen
I can’t stop nor can I hide
From this terror inside
But these visions are not for me
The danger is yours I believe

It’s a feeling washing over me
It’s a feeling I can’t break free

Premonition
I can’t stop these visions
Premonition
Purge the scene from my head
Premonition
I feel the growing tension
Premonition
Where will this dream end

Sleepless nights I lie awake
Another day I await
To carry on with our lives
Though we have not much time
Anxiety I cannot shake
Could anyone ever relate
I’ll go on holding inside
My fear of each day of our lives

It’s a feeling washing over me
It’s a feeling I can’t break free

Premonition
I can’t stop these visions
Premonition
Purge the scene from my head
Premonition
I feel the growing tension
Premonition
Where will this dream end

Premonition
I can’t stop these visions
Premonition
Purge the scene from my head
Premonition
I feel the growing tension
Premonition
Where will this dream end
Premonition
I can’t stop these visions
Premonition
Purge the scene from my head
Premonition
I feel the growing tension
Premonition
Where will this dream end
Where will it end
Where will it end
