Track Name: Lost In The Shadow
Rise from the ashes once more
Lift yourself each time you fall
Let the strength within you be restored
And take a hold of what you think is yours
You are free to explore
And leave your demons to be ignored

Heal the wounds with a course of time
Help yourself

Hey you’re lost in the shadow
Hey you’re drowning in sorrow

Heal the wounds with a course of time
Lay to rest memories that can not die
Free yourself from the guilt you feel inside
And learn true meaning of what is pride
You must fight for your life
Forgive the ones who left you to die

Lay to rest the memories that can not die
Save yourself

Hey you’re lost in the shadow
Hey you’re drowning in sorrow

And so the damage is done
Now see look what you’ve done

Hey you’re lost in the shadow
Hey you’re drowning in sorrow

Hey the damage is done
Hey look what you’ve done
Yeah you’re lost in my shadow
Yeah I’m feeling your sorrow
Track Name: Lion In A Cage
Trapped like a lion in this cage
I move in circles drive myself insane
You hold the key to my escape
Heaven is an empty space when all you feel is rage

Bent down and broken till my spirit breaks
You alone can free me from this loneliness and pain
I long for you now what will it take
You alone can set me free and wash my sins away

I'm chasing your lies
You're leaving me to die

How dare you let me wait in vein
Because of you I wear these chains
Where were you you said you'd lead the way
Because of you I've lost my way

I'm chasing your lies
You're leaving me to die

How dare you let me wait in vein
Because of you I wear these chains
Where were you you said you'd lead the way
Because of you I've lost my way

I'm chasing your lies
You're cheating on life
You're leaving me to die
You're leaving me to die

How dare you let me wait in vein
Because of you I wear these chains
Where were you you said you'd lead the way
Because of you I've lost my way

How dare you let me wait in vein
Because of you I wear these chains
Where were you you said you'd lead the way
Because of you I've lost my way

Just a lion in a cage
Just a lion in a cage
Just a lion in a cage
Just a lion in a cage
Track Name: Devils Tongue
If I pretend to be your friend
I am your enemy in disguise
And all your strengths that still reside
I will be the one who makes you cry

Welcome to the dark side of my mind
No angels here to make things right
The devils tongue he whispers in my ear
No angels here to save me from my fears

The hand that feeds indeed will bleed
With every chance I will take a bite
Forever more rest assured
I am a test which you shall fail once more

Welcome to the dark side of my mind
No angels here to make things right
The devils tongue he whispers in my ear
No angels here to save me from my fears

Welcome to the dark side of my mind
No angels here to make things right
The devils tongue he whispers in my ear
No angels here to save me from my fears

Forever more rest assured
I am a test which you shall fail once more
I am a test which you shall fail once more
I am a god who shall love you no more
Track Name: My Brain
Show me how to live a life
That's pure, simple and free
And I will try to live a life
That's humble and in peace

Show me how to rid myself
From all that is not clean
And wash my mouth from the bitter taste
Which burns from the words that I speak
Show me how to see the world
What justice can really mean
For the world I see is full of hate
And destroys any love that I feel

Help me undo what I have done
All I can do is hit and run
Something’s standing in the way
I know I need to change
The record goes on and on
And I ask myself
Is there something wrong with my brain

Help me understand myself
And I'll be a better man
And take the world for what it is
And rest my mind at last
Maybe one day things will change
But till then I'm buried in the sand
Cos a bitter man is a lonely man
And a lonely life he’ll live

Help me undo what I have done
All I can do is hit and run
Something’s standing in the way
And I know I need to change
The record goes on and on
And I ask myself
Is there something wrong with my brain
Track Name: Give Me Strength
See me now
Can you blind me
It’s over now
You’ve destroyed me
I’m broken now
Can you fix me please
If I beg you now
Will you return to me

Give me strength
So I can finally say
I rid myself
Of your face and your name

Hear me now
My voice is bleeding
Touch me now
Feel me burning
I’m hurting now
I’m left with nothing but a scar
Fuck you now
You ripped my whole world apart

Give me strength
So I can finally say
I rid myself
Of your face and your name

I’m haunted be the ghost of you

Give me strength
So I can finally say
I rid myself
Of your face and your name
Track Name: Storm Clouds
When the sky above is falling
And I fall on black days
Stay the hell away from me my friend
I’m trapped in this dark place

When your lost confined to the shadows
Of the very depths of your mind
It’s hard enough to try and please yourself
Let alone to try and make things right

When the rage within takes over
What should one do
Every now and then you hurt the ones you love
And then pray for the wrongs you do

Just the like the wind
As it starts to change
Storm clouds are coming once again

When your fears and doubts cloud over
And tears fill your eyes
You drown yourself in desperate sorrow
In the river that you've cried

And if my anger
I feel inside
Makes you uneasy
Makes you wanna cry
Find yourself shelter
Find somewhere to hide
Storm clouds are coming once again

Just the like the wind
As it starts to change
Storm clouds are coming once again
