Gets Me Through

I'm not the kind of person you think I am
I'm not the antichrist or the iron man

I have a vision that I just can't control
I feel I've lost my spirit and sold my soul

Got no control

I tried to entertain you the best I can
I wish I started walking before I ran
But I still love the feeling I get from you
I hope you'll never stop cause

It gets me through-yeah
It gets me through-yeah

The feelings that I hide behind
Sometimes reality's unkind
The nightmare starts for me at night
I dread the long and lonely nights

I'm not the kind of person you think I am
I'm not the antichrist or the iron man But I still love the feeling I get from you
I hope you'll never stop cause It gets me through-yeah
I'm just trying to live-yeah (repeat)

Facing Hell

You made a promise of protection
To a future after life
To the final resurrection
Until eternal paradise

But then I'm blinded by temptation
Into every mortal sin
Is it God that sits there waiting
Or will the darkness suck me in?

Let's wake up the dead (Oh yeah)
It's better than never, ya know
More tears are shed
I'm praying that you'll never know
That I'm facing hell

Oh the children sit and listen, the belief was in their eyes
In a land with no tomorrows, through the night you hear their cries
But then your eyes just skip the pages of a book that never ends
Is it God that sits there waiting
Do you hear the call again?

Let's wake up the dead (Oh yeah)
It's better than never, ya know
More tears are shed
I'm praying that you'll never know
That I'm facing hell

It's just a crazy world we live in and I'm out of my mind
You'll pray tomorrow but you're leaving today
Evil one is coming and he's knocking on your door
Cause today is the day you pay

Let's wake up the dead (Oh yeah)
It's better than never, ya know
More tears are shed
I'm praying that you'll never know
That I'm facing hell

Dreamer

Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering if Mother Earth will survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her, sometime

After all, there's just the two of us
And here we are still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself, time after time

I'm just a dreamer-I dream my life away
I'm just a dreamer-Who dreams of better days

I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I'm hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those who will come after us this time

I'm just a dreamer-I dream my life away, oh yeah
I'm just a dreamer-Who dreams of better days

Your higher power may be God or Jesus Christ
It doesn't really matter much to me
Without each other's help, there ain't no hope for us
I'm living in a dream, a fantasy
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

If only we could just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate and bigotry be gone?

I'm just a dreamer-I dream my life away
I'm just a dreamer-Who dreams of better days, okay
I'm just a dreamer-Who's searching for the way, today
I'm just a dreamer-I dream my life away
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

No Easy Way Out

Looking to the mirror from the other side
Seeing your reflection and a ghost of mine
Trying to deny it but the damage is done
Under sergeant's orders
But the race is run

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

Read your daily fiction
Superman is dead
Crushing pounds of silver
Imitating lead
Then if he will fix it
Children of the past
I guess it isn't welcome
Doesn't time move fast?

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

Night and the shadow of man
This is the dawn of the dead
Don't let it live in your head
And then now as the Sabbath begins
It wakes your nightmare again
So run away if you can, so just run, run as fast as you can

You've got to tell me it's over now
I'm trapped inside of a dream
The crushing weight on my shoulders now
Is bearing down and it seems
There's just no easy way out
Too late to tell me it's over now
Falling apart at the seams
No angel sits on my shoulder now
I hold my head and it screams
There's just no easy way out
No easy way out

That I Never Had

All these tears that I cry
Don't you wonder why?
Is it all a dream?
Never what it seems

Get under my skin
Should I let you in?
Don't you think it's bad
To give me something that I've never had

Every word I say
Everytime I pray
Look into my eyes
Distant voices cry
Is the light in me
Tell me what you see
You weren't what I had

Can't get something that I've never had
Can't get something that I've never had

Should I think tomorrow?
Oh
Should I live for just today?
Take the light that burns inside you
Let it burn away
Let it burn away
Let it burn away

Will I see the day?
Will I have to pay?
What's inside of me?
You will never see

Won't you let me in?
Don't you let me see?
Do you think I'm mad?

Cause I want something that I've never had
Cause I want something that I've never had

Give me something that I've never had
Give me something that I've never had

You Know...
(Pt. 1)

Tried to be your father
Things just made it harder
Sorry if I made you cry
Years turned you against me
Heart was always aching
And I never thought you'd say goodbye
I could have been wrong
You know...
I should have been strong
You know...

(That'll do-Ha ha ha!)

Junkie

You're coming down badly
You're crippled inside
A rat in your sewer
You've got no place to hide
A gut-wrenching fever
Addicted to death
You don't give a fuck if it means your last breath

You try so hard to quit but you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning-why? Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

You crave for the needle to stick in your vein
Can't wait for the poison to kill all the pain
You buy a cheap ticket to take a short ride
That beautiful flower is eating your mind

You try so hard to quit but you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning-why? Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

Your name means nothing-You don't know the score
Body is aching-you still crave for more
Sometimes you wish that you'd never been born
Tormenting came with a crown full of thorns

You're chasing the dragon, you're chasing the high
A bird with one wing who's still trying to fly
You're all out of spirit-a dead man alive
A born again junkie-you'll never survive

You try so hard to quit but you'll never admit
You're the junkie
There's no reasoning-why? Cause the mirror don't lie
You're the junkie

Junkie... junkie... junkie...

Running Out of Time

Been around this world so many times
If you could only see my mind
I watch my secret heaven turn to hell
Faith alone has guided me
The ghost of my own destany
I haven't even got a soul to sell

All the thing I put me through
I wouldn't wish my hell on you
You'll never know what's going on inside

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of faith and hope and reason
I'm running out of time-running out of time

Trouble always seems to find
A way to live inside my mind
My haunted hell and me remaim alone
Underneith my masquerade
A simple man who's so afraid
I try to find a light to guide me home

Mama, please just hold me tight
Feeling so afraid tonight
Cause you're the only one that really knows

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of faith and hope and reason
I'm running out of time-running out of time
Fighting for my sanity
Many nights of tradgedy
Got to leave my wretched ways behind

Just another lonely broken hero
Picking up the pieces of my mind
Running out of faith and hope and reason
I'm running out of time-running out of time

(In background)

Underneith my masquerade
A simple man who's so afraid
Faith alone has guided me
The ghost of my own destiny
Picking up the pieces
Running out of time

Black Illusion

You load the dice and paint the smile upon your face
With fingers crossed you switch the perfume with the mace
What kind of dreams do you enjoy inside your bed?
I'll face the lies that take the evil from your head

Black illusion is all I ever see
Black illusion, I'll bring you misery
Oh yeah
Yeah

You always seem to know the answer to it all
You seem to cheat the truth and never take the fall
Your life is hollow and you simplify the rules
The time will come when you will join the other fools

Black illusion is all I ever see
Black illusion, I'll bring you misery
Oh yeah
Yeah

I load the dice and fake a smile upon your face
With fingers crossed I switch the perfume with the mace
What kind of dreams do I enjoy inside my bed?
You'll face the lies that shake the evil from my head

Black illusion is all I ever see
Black illusion, I'll bring you misery
Oh yeah
Yeah

Alive

A child of a broken mind
The fear that I hide beind
I hate rejection-It's the worst-It greatly hurts me
Living inside my head
I feel like the living dead
I need your affection-It's the best-It greatly helps me

With my back against the wall
Trying so hard not to fall
Guess I'm tired of sleeping around
Hopeless-in dispair-don't know if I'm here or there
Feeling like I'm up when I'm down

But I'm still alive
I don't have any place to go, anywhere
You know I'm alive
I know I'm crazy but I still like it here
Well I'm still alive
I don't have any place to go, anywhere
I don't want to die

A head full of tragic schemes
What keeps me alive is dreams
I dream that someday I'll find the key that sets my mind free
You may think I've lost control
The man with the broken soul
I'm not here to try and make excuses-just believe me

With my back against the wall
Trying so hard not to fall
Guess I'm tired of sleeping around
Hopeless-in dispair-don't know if I'm here or there
Feeling like I'm up when I'm down

But I'm still alive
I don't have any place to go, anywhere
You know I'm alive
I know I'm crazy but I still like it here
Well I'm still alive
I don't have any place to go, anywhere
I don't want to die

You know I'm alive
You know I'm alive

Can You Hear Them

So sick and tired of living and so afraid to die
I've lived so many lives and still I wonder why
The way the world perceives me is not the way I am
The one half thinks I'm crazy, the other thinks I'm mad

I spent a long, long time alone in my room
I need your help to get me out of this gloom

Can you hear them?
All the voices in my head... they freak me out
Can you hear them?
They won't be happy til I'm dead... they freak me out

Ten thousand million nightmares
Temptation by the score
I used to get so high and still I wanted more
You think my time is wasted in search of who I am
I tried so hard to kill the boy inside the man

I spent a thousand years, one night in my room
I've lived so many lives and that is my doom

Can you hear them?
All the voices in my head... they freak me out
Can you hear them?
They won't be happy til I'm dead... they freak me out

I never thought I'd smile again
Always thought I'd be here on my own
Sometimes when I'm down, you come and save me again
And again and again and again

I'll never understand it-it makes no sense at all
Just look at what I've done-it's time to count the score
I spend a long, long time alone in my room
I need your help to get me out of this gloom

Can you hear them?
All the voices in my head... they freak me out
Can you hear them?
They won't be happy til I'm dead... they freak me out
