LYRICS
11. Another Rainy Day

Don’t say that, you don’t believe it,

You ought to think before you speak sometimes,

Your words cut and bruise, until even

Towers of Strength become demoralized,

 

You say that you’re gonna leave me,

But I don’t understand the reasons why,

I’ve made every day that I breath

A chance to make this love a paradise

 

It’s another rainy day

Trying to find a way but I bring you down,

Just another rainy day

Nothing I could say can appease you now

I need you to need me,

I’m in so much pain that it’s hard to believe

I need you to need me.

 

Don’t se me free,

Can’t you I’m surrendering now,

It’s my heart you’re dismembering now

 

High time now to start believing

I’m not the kind who likes to run and hide

This love is death I’ve been grieving

My mistake, I need to rectify

 

I know now, you’ll never see it,

And God in Heaven knows how hard I’ve tried

I’m hurt with no strength left to feel it

Now you say our love was just a lie,

It’s another rainy day

Trying to find a way but I bring you down,

Just another rainy day

Nothing I could say can appease you now

I need you to need me,

I’m in so much pain that it’s hard to believe

I need you to need me.

 

12. Unbelievable

I head a threnody of rain

Sound upon a window, led astray,

A storm condemned it with a kiss,

Powerless to resist,

Born to taste the pain,

 

A force of nature devastates somehow,

But then its beauty can amaze,

That’s just the way I think of you,

Wonderful and cruel,

Ecstasy and pain,

 

The timelines are critical

As the clock ticks away,

But the fine lines are visible

In advance stage decay,

 

Does it touch you when you sleep?

The decline is getting through now,

When it cuts you and you bleed

Is your silence hard to keep?

God I thought you were the one,

That is why this is so unbelievable.

 

I’m taking something for the pain now,

I really wish I could escape,

A jar of things I never say

Opened in a rage,

Words I can’t erase,

 

I wonder if I was to blame, and how

So many things in me have changed,

The choice is simple, not a list,

Live and just exist,

Die or break away,

 

The timelines are critical

As the clock ticks away,

But the fine lines are visible

In advance stage decay,

 

Does it touch you when you sleep?

The decline is getting through now,

When it cuts you and you bleed

Is your silence hard to keep?

God I thought you were the one,

That is why this is so unbelievable.

 

13. The Riddle

I watched the Earth revolve from space

And the light turned cold today,

Two hemispheres bequeath the day to darkness,

Gold to grey,

 

Why does love evade us so?

We’re born, we die, but never grown,

 

Still I remember,

 

I watched the sand release the waves,

 

No emotion, thrown away,

Returned what entropy remained to the ocean’s

Slow decay,

 

First to learn is last to know

The truth behind a trusting soul,

 

But I remember

 

When you and I could face the world

And meet in the middle,

Not just a boy, not just a girl,

In the cradle of the love that we found,

It was never ending love that we found,

Repeating the riddle,

 

Warmth from the fire emanates,

Ash and embers glow to fade,

Phoenix-like flames rejuvenate,

Colours ebb and flow, re-made,


To live a lifetime, never know

Where the answers come and go,

 

But I remember

 

When you and I could face the world

And meet in the middle,

Not just a boy, not just a girl,

In the cradle of the love that we found,

It was never ending love that we found,

Defeating the riddle,

 

Balanced on the edge of sleep

These things unfold,

Is it harder than it’s ever been?

To comprehend these things

Much less to know

Just what is and what should never be

 

Do spirit-guides beyond the maze

Take the last grave stone to graze,

Or is the Firmament to blame

For the pathways home again,

 

The seasons of my time have honed

Such a tale in flesh and bone,

 

But I remember

 

When you and I could face the world

And meet in the middle,

Not just a boy, not just a girl,

In the cradle of the love that we found,

It was never ending love that we found,

Completing the riddle,

 

When you and I could face the world

And meet in the middle,

Not just a boy, not just a girl,

In the cradle of the love that we found,

It was never ending love that we found,

Completing the riddle...

 

14. I Found Love (Bonus Track)

I look at you and my heart's beating faster,

Always there through the tears and the laughter,

You and me baby, we have evolved,

You're a cool statuesque alabaster,

I'm a fool, just a permanent disaster,

But to me baby, you are the one,

 

I found love,

I found love,

I found love in ways,

That won't change at all,

I found love,

Girl you're all I need and more,

I found love in ways,

That won't fade at all,

 

Play the tune and for you I'm a dancer,

You make me feel not so hopeless as romancer,

You nurture me baby, leading me on,

Every question my life has to answer,

Ends in you, you're my "Happy ever after",

Can't you see baby, you are the bomb

 

I found love,

I found love,

I found love in ways,

That won't change at all,

I found love,

Girl you're I need and more,

I found love in ways

That won't fade at all

1. The Gates Of Jerusalem

(Instrumental)

 

2. Arabian Nights

Blood on a vast medieval page,

Born of the blackest plague,

So to Jerusalem we came,

Salahadine just a breath away,

Fighting a Holy War in vain,

Not even faith to gain,

Once I believed this “Christian” way,

Now I concede nothing’s so insane,

 

From Montgizard to Aquataine,

The blood flows red, the sand is stained,

The Templar’s code is in my veins,

We fight in Christ’s immortal name,

 

Arabian Knights,

The infidel seed,

Barbarian blight

The Mosque can’t peel away or betray,

Arabian Knights,

The Papal extreme has lost its way,

The Paladin plight,

The cross can’t heal,

The cross just seals your fate,

Arabian Knights

 

Flesh from the heart of evil sprays

Blood on the cross we raise,

Gripped by a fear I can’t explain

Armed with “la poste de falcone”

Just as the stark upheaval shaped

The last of the great Crusades,

Something alive inside is slain,

Deaf to the drums from the palisades,

From Ascalon the battles rage,

The mantle flows, the cross emblazed.

A citadel at last inflames

As scimitar and sword engage,

 

Arabian Knights,

The infidel seed,

Barbarian blight

The Mosque can’t peel away or betray,

Arabian Knights,

The Papal extreme has lost its way,

The Paladin plight,

The cross can’t heal,

The cross just seals your fate,

Arabian Knights

 

3. Gunrunning

I wanna dance in the dark someday,

Touching the lace on your skin,

Holding you close as my hands start to wander,

Perfect in you lingerie, immersed as we begin,

 

I'm gonna dance with you come what may,

Slaves to a passionate kiss,

You'll bring the lightning and I'll bring the thunder,

You and I were born just like a storm from the abyss,

 

So you scream from the inside,

As you breathe it sustains,

Ecstasy, pleasure entwined with pain...

 

This fantasy turned physical

And now the need is so bad, (now the need is so bad)

Passion on fire hits high ground running,

We're Cyclones reaching critical,

Our destiny is storm clad, (destiny is storm clad)

We're on a high wire with a World War coming,

But never ceasefire when desire's gunrunning

 

I wanna speak from the heart someday,

Words of a love deep within,

"Touch" is the cage of this spell that I'm under,

"Lust" the heavy chain to such a strange hypothesis,

 

I'm gonna capture you come what may,

Peace in our time can't exist,

Sex is your weapon that tears me asunder,

Making me the force that you are powerless to resist

 

So you scream from the inside,

As you breathe it sustains,

Ecstacy, pleasure entwined with pain...

 

The fantasy turned physical

And now the need is so bad, (now the need is so bad)

Passion on fire hits the high ground running,

We're Cyclones reaching critical,

Our destiny is storm clad, (destiny is storm clad)

We're on a high wire with a World War coming,

But never cease fire when desire's gunrunning.

 

4. The Lights Go Down

When you feel like this world is over

And you feel like is skipping your town,

In this surreal light you’re just a painted clown,

Well it could seem like your heavy shoulders

Can’t conceal life is dragging you down,

But it could mean life is waiting on you now,

 

Sometimes it’s hard to raise your guard,

I bear the scars, the grand façade…

 

The lights go down in the heart of the city,

Throw down your love like you wanna die,

The lights go down and the dark isn’t pretty,

Throw down your love,

Get up and fight

 

When your dreams lie beyond emotion

But it seems like the mirror don’t lie,

Sometimes the scene’s right

But not the turning tide,

So destiny spikes your lover’s potion,

Cupid sees that his arrow won’t fly,

But could it be that the power’s yours inside

 

Sometimes it’s hard to raise your guard,

I bear the scars, the grand façade…

 

The lights go down in the heart of the city,

Throw down your love like you wanna die,

The lights go down and the dark isn’t pretty,

Throw down your love,

Get up and fight

 

5. Raven’s Eye

Autumn crawls forsaken and hides,

Winter falls, the bell scolds and chides,

The specters and landscapes of ages gone by,

Through the lifeless, lustred, raven’s eye.

 

Shadowed, dark, the old Pagan shrine,

Pale and stark, the cold mists of time,

The Dragon’s claw, Mandrake, reflections of mine,

In the lifeless, lustred, raven’s eye.

 

Faithless, the creed you don’t want to believe,

In that place so serene,

Mother Nature redeemer,

Fate cast the seed you don’t want to receive,

Heresy intervenes,

Cull what’s left, keep the dream inside.

 

Celtic frost, an ill-tempered bride,

Embers of the last Beltane sky,

Recaptured like memories the day that I die,

In the lifeless, lustred, raven’s eye.

 

Faithless, the creed you don’t want to believe,

In that place so serene,

Mother Nature redeemer,

Fate cast the seed you don’t want to receive,

Heresy intervenes,

Cull what’s left, keep the dream inside.

 

Keep the dream alive…

6. Right Now

Look into my eyes,

Do you fear me?

Prophesies entwine,

You revere me,

 

For centuries this web was spun

By the ostentatious one,

Like a god in supreme ascension,

So release the dead and run

From the necronomicon,

Death is such a surreal adventure.

 

Right now, right now,

Caught in celestial Angelfire,

Right now, right now,

Pawn in terrestrial gains empire,

Right now.

 

Look in to the skies

And see clearly,

Travel space and time,

Can you hear me?

 

Share the feast of flesh as one,

‘Till the beast is fed and done,

Feel the blood engineer sensation,

Fantasies, forever young,

Deep within still waters run,

Acquiesce to the real temptation,

 

Right now, right now,

Caught in celestial Angelfire,

Right now, right now,

Pawn in terrestrial gains empire,

Right now.

 

7. Game Of Hearts

It’s a gamble of extreme emotion,

The psychology of sacrifice,

When this love is such a game to you and I.

 

This roulette could put us ten feet under,

I suspect the gun is loaded twice,

Spin the barrel and embrace the truth and lies,

 

So lay your cards down

And show your hand now

With passion unbound,

Just let your hair down,

Step out of that gown

And make my heart pound,

 

Yeah, it makes me wonder,

If I’m a victim of a loaded dice?

Yeah, it makes me wonder,

If love will tear us both apart tonight?

Yeah, it makes me wonder.

If I’m defenseless in the candlelight?

Yeah, it make me wonder,

If I could win this game of hearts tonight?

 

Win the battle but the war’s not over,

For we know this is an endless fight,

It’s a mystery, it’s the poker game of life,

 

Love it piracy that waits to plunder,

Got to have you if it takes all night,

But you stack the deck against me one more time,

 

So lay your cards down

And show your hand now

With passion unbound,

Just let your hair down,

Step out of that gown

And make my heart pound,

 

Yeah, it makes me wonder,

If I’m a victim of a loaded dice?

Yeah, it makes me wonder,

If love will tear us both apart tonight?

Yeah, it makes me wonder.

If I’m defenseless in the candlelight?

Yeah, it make me wonder,

If I could win this game of hearts tonight?

 

8. The Last Time

The candle light that burned last night into memory

Has faded like the colour of her eyes

I'm aching, though inside

I know this was meant to be

There's nothing I can do to turn back time

 

I'm leaving tomorrow,

I'm grieving today

 

I'm here, a host to timeless ghosts, not a remedy

For nothing heals the way I feel inside

I've turned to stone and friends I've known are my enemies

We cast aside the remnant of our lives

 

I'm leaving tomorrow,

I'm grieving today

 

If I had my way,

I would make you stay,

Cause this might be the last time,

The last time I feel love.

I know things may change,

But until that day,

This might be the last time,

The last time I feel love

 

These empty rooms are silent tombs where the melody,

Has vanished like the echoes of her sighs

At least I know the finite glow of remembering,

The fire has gone, the embers never die.

 

I'm leaving tomorrow,

I'm grieving today.

 

If I had my way,

I would make you stay,

Cause this might be the last time,

The last time I feel love.

I know things may change,

But until that day,

This might be the last time,

The last time I feel love.

 

9. The Priestess

Systematic sexual revolution comin’,

Everybody dealing with addiction running’,

A party where you bring your own prescription drug in

And every victim is dancin’ to different drummin’,

 

Sex is religion on the rise,

It’s growing out of control, oh yeah,

This world is all we’ve got tonight,

She is a healer of soul

And I’m an acolyte,

 

She’s got my world spinning round,

Loveless land needs a river,

In this life “school’s out”, not for recess,

Got my girl, getting’ down,

On demand, I deliver,

For my world turns now for the Priestess

 

He said:

“Mama I’m addicted to the porn site honeys,

A sexy dominatrix lady stole my money!

She said. “You gotta use a credit card to see more of me”

But when I paid “she” was “he” and that just wasn’t funny!”

 

Sex is religion on the rise,

It’s growing out of control, oh yeah,

This world is all we’ve got tonight,

She is a healer of soul

And I’m an acolyte,

 

She’s got my world spinning round,

Loveless land needs a river,

In this life “school’s out”, not for recess,

Got my girl, getting’ down,

On demand, I deliver,

For my world turns now for the Priestess

 

10. Insatiable

This hell you raise,

Your red hot ways,

Could be the death of me,

A loss of sanity,

I know you tease

And this is ecstasy,

Dual personality,

Excesses in extremes.

 

You always turn me on,

You make my motor run,

You tantalize,

Caught up in your passion every night,

 

Little darling you’re insatiable,

My little honey you’re insatiable.

 

Just feed my need,

You beg and plead,

This living fantasy,

A life between the sheets,

 

It’s not a dream.

This is reality,

Oh how you dress for me

Is perfect and obscene,

 

You always burn beyond,

Even when I think I’m done,

You excite,

Bringing all my senses back to life,

 

Little darling you’re insatiable,

I know our love will always be the one,

When kindred spirits fall they seal a bond,

You and I, until dawn breaks out its light

Become insatiable,

 

I’ll be the one,

Through the hot undercover night

I’ll be the one

In your heart and your soul,

I’ll be the one,

Be the light in my lover’s eyes,

I’ll be the one

Who’s insatiable.
