    Enter Sandman

    Say your prayers little one
    Don't forget, my son
    To include everyone

    Tuck you in, warm within
    Keep you free from sin
    Till the sandman he comes

    Sleep with one eye open
    Gripping your pillow tight

    Exit light
    Enter night
    Take my hand
    We're off to never never land

    Something's wrong, shut the light
    Heavy thoughts tonight
    And they aren't of snow white

    Dreams of war, dreams of liars
    Dreams of dragon's fire
    And of things that will bite

    Sleep with one eye open
    Gripping your pillow tight

    Exit light
    Enter night
    Take my hand
    We're off to never never land

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    Pray the lord my soul to keep
    If I die before I wake
    Pray the lord my soul to take

    Hush little baby, don't say a word
    And never mind that noise you heard
    It's just the beast under your bed,
    In your closet, in your head

    Exit light
    Enter night
    Grain of sand

    Exit light
    Enter night
    Take my hand
    We're off to never never land

    Sad But True

    Hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who takes you there
    hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who cares
    they
    they betray
    I'm your only true friend now
    they
    they'll betray
    I'm forever there

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your dream, mind astray
    I'm your eyes while you're away
    I'm your pain while you repay
    You know it's sad but true

    You
    You're my mask
    You're my cover, my shelter
    You
    You're my mask
    You're the one who's blamed
    Do
    Do my work
    Do my dirty work, scapegoat
    Do
    Do my deeds
    For you're the one who's shamed

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your dream, mind astray
    I'm your eyes while you're away
    I'm your pain while you repay
    You know it's sad but true

    Hate
    I'm your hate
    I'm your hate when you want love
    Pay
    Pay the price
    Pay, for nothing's fair

    Hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who took you here
    Hey
    I'm your life
    And I no longer care

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your truth, telling lies
    I'm your reasoned alibis
    I'm inside open your eyes
    I'm you

    Sad but true

    Holier Than Thou

    No more!
    The craps rolls out your mouth again
    Haven't changed, your brain is still gelatin
    Little whispers circle around your head
    Why don't you worry about yourself instead

    Who are you? where ya been? where ya from?
    Gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
    You lie so much you believe yourself
    Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

    Holier than thou
    You are
    Holier than thou
    You are

    You know not

    Before you judge me take a look at you
    Can't you find something better to do
    Point the finger, slow to understand
    Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

    It's not who you are it's who you know
    Others lives are the basis of your own
    Burn your bridges build them back with wealth
    Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

    Holier than thou
    You are
    Holier than thou
    You are

    You know not

    The Unforgiven

    New blood joins this earth
    And quickly he's subdued
    Through constant pain disgrace
    The young boy learns their rules

    With time the child draws in
    This whipping boy done wrong
    Deprived of all his thoughts
    The young man struggles on and on he's known
    Avow unto his own
    That never from this day
    His will they'll take away

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never be
    Never see
    Won't see what might have been

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never free
    Never me
    So I dub thee unforgiven

    They dedicate their lives
    To running all of his
    He tries to please them all
    This bitter man he is
    Throughout his life the same
    He's battled constantly
    This fight he cannot win
    A tired man they see no longer cares
    The old man then prepares
    To die regretfully
    That old man here is me

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never be
    Never see
    Won't see what might have been

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined through in what I've shown
    Never free
    Never me
    So I dub the unforgiven

    You labeled me
    I'll label you
    So I dub the unforgiven

    Wherever I May Roam

    (And the road becomes my bride)
    ...And the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need

    ...And with dust in throat I crave
    Only knowledge will I save
    To the game you stay a slave
    Rover, wanderer
    Nomad, vagabond
    Call me what you will

    But I'll take my time anywhere
    Free to speak my mind anywhere
    And I'll redefine anywhere
    Anywhere I may roam
    Where I lay my head is home

    (And the earth becomes my throne)
    ...And the earth becomes my throne
    I adapt to the unknown
    Under wandering stars I've grown
    By myself but not alone
    I ask no one

    ...And my ties are severed clean
    The less I have the more I gain
    Off the beaten path I reign
    Rover wanderer
    Nomad vagabond
    Call me what you will

    But I'll take my time anywhere
    I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
    And I'll never mind anywhere
    Anywhere I may roam
    Where I lay my head is home

    But i'll take my time anywhere
    Free to speak my mind
    And I'll take my find anywhere
    Anywhere I may roam
    Where I lay my head is home

    Carved upon my stone
    My body lie, but still I roam
    Wherever I may roam

    Don't Tread on Me

    Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
    Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
    Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
    Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

    Don't tread on me

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is to prepare for war
    So be it
    Settle the score
    Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

    Don't tread on me

    Love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
    Quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
    Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
    The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

    Don't tread on me

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is to prepare for war
    So be it
    Settle the score
    Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

    Don't tread on me

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is to prepare for war

    Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
    Once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is to prepare for war
    So be it
    Settle the score
    Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

    Don't tread on me

    Through The Never

    All that is, was and will be
    Universe much too big to see

    Time and space never ending
    Disturbing thoughts, questions pending
    Limitations of human understanding
    Too quick to criticize
    Obligation to survive
    We hunger to be alive

    All that is, ever
    Ever was
    Will be ever
    Twisting
    Turning
    Through the never

    In the dark, see past our eyes
    Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies

    Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
    On a quest, meaning, reason
    Came to be, how it begun
    All alone in the family of the sun
    Curiosity teasing everyone
    On our home, third stone from the sun

    All that is, ever
    Ever was
    Will be ever
    Twisting
    Turning
    Through the never

    On through the never
    We must go
    On through the never
    Wut of the
    Edge of forever
    We must go
    On through the never
    Then ever comes

    All that is, ever
    Ever was
    Will be ever
    Who we are
    Ask forever
    Twisting
    Turning
    Through the never

    Never

    Nothing Else Matters

    So close no matter how far
    Couldn't be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    And nothing else matters

    Never opened myself this way
    Life is ours, we live it our way
    All these words I don't just say
    And nothing else matters

    Trust I seek and I find in you
    Every day for us something new
    Open mind for a different view
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    But I know

    So close no matter how far
    Couldn't be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    But I know

    Never opened myself this way
    Life is ours, we live it our way
    All these words I don't just say

    Trust I seek and I find in you
    Every day for us something new
    Open mind for a different view
    And nothing else matters

    Never cared for what they say
    Never cared for games they play
    Never cared for what they do
    Never cared for what they know
    And I know

    So close no matter how far
    Couldn't be much more from the heart
    Forever trusting who we are
    No nothing else matters

    Of Wolf And Man

    Off through the new day's mist I run
    Off from the new day's mist I have come
    I hunt
    Therefore I am
    Harvest the land
    Taking of the fallen lamb

    Off through the new day's mist I run
    Off from the new day's mist I have come
    We shift
    Pulsing with the earth
    Company we keep
    Roaming the land while you sleep

    Shape shift nose to the wind
    Shape shift feeling I've been
    Move swift all senses clean
    Earth's gift back to the meaning of life

    Bright is the moon high in starlight
    Chill is the air cold as steel tonight
    We shift
    Call of the wild
    Fear in your eyes
    It's later than you realized

    Shape shift nose to the wind
    Shape shift feeling I've been
    Move swift all senses clean
    Earth's gift back to the meaning of life

    I feel I change
    Back to a better day
    Hair stands on the back of my neck
    In wildness is the preservation of the world

    So seek the wolf in thyself

    Shape shift nose to the wind
    Shape shift feeling I've been
    Move swift all senses clean
    Earth's gift
    Back to the meaning of wolf and man

    The God That Failed

    Pride you took
    Pride you feel
    Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

    Not the word
    Not the love
    Not what you thought from above


    It feeds
    It grows
    It clouds all that you will know
    Deceit
    Deceive
    Decide just what you believe

    I see faith in your eyes
    Never your hear the discouraging lies
    I hear faith in your cries
    Broken is the promise, betrayal
    The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

    Follow the god that failed

    Find your peace
    Find your say
    Find the smooth road in your way

    Trust you gave
    A child to save
    Left you cold and him in grave

    It feeds
    It grows
    It clouds all that you will know
    Deceit
    Deceive
    Decide just what you believe

    I see faith in your eyes
    Never you hear the discouraging lies
    I hear faith in your cries
    Broken is the promise, betrayal
    The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

    Follow the god that failed

    I see faith in your eyes
    Broken is the promise, betrayal
    The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

    Follow the god that failed

    Pride you took
    Pride you feel
    Pride that you felt when you'd kneel

    Trust you gave
    A child to save
    Left you cold and him in grave

    I see faith in your eyes
    Never you hear the discouraging lies
    I hear faith in your cries
    Broken is the promise, betrayal
    The healing hand held back by deepened nail

    Follow the god that failed

    My Friend Of Misery

    You just stood there screaming
    Fearing no one was listening to you
    They say the empty can rattles the most
    The sound of your voice must soothe you
    Hearing only what you want to hear
    And knowing only what you've heard
    You you're smothered in tragedy
    You're out to save the world

    Misery
    You insist that the weight of the world
    Should be on your shoulders
    Misery
    There's much more to life than what you see
    My friend of misery

    You still stood there screaming
    No one caring about these words you tell
    My friend before your voice is gone
    One man's fun is another's hell
    These times are sent to try men's souls
    But something's wrong with all you see
    You you'll take it on all yourself
    Remember, misery loves company

    Misery
    You insist that the weight of the world \
    Should be on your shoulders
    Misery
    There's much more to life than what you see
    My friend of misery

    You just stood there creaming
    My friend of misery

    The Struggle Within

    Reaching out for something you've got to feel
    While clutching to what you had thought was real

    Kicking at a dead horse pleases you
    No way of showing your gratitude
    So many things you don't want to do
    What is it? what have you got to lose

    What the hell
    What is you think you're gonna find?
    Hypocrite
    Boredom sets into the boring mind

    Struggle within it suits you fine
    Struggle within your ruin
    Struggle within you seal your own coffin
    Struggle within the struggling within

    Home is not a home it becomes a hell
    Turning it into your prison cell
    Advantages are taken, not handed out
    While you struggle inside your hell

    Reaching out
    Grabbing for something you've got to feel
    Closing in
    The pressure upon you is so real

    Struggle within it suits you fine
    Struggle within your ruin
    Struggle within you seal your own coffin
    Struggle within the struggling within

    Reaching out for something you've got to feel
    While clutching to what you had thought was real
    What the hell

    What is you think you're gonna find
    Hypocrite
    Boredom sets into the boring mind

    Struggle within it suits you fine
    Struggle within your ruin
    Struggle within you seal your own coffin
    Struggle within the struggling within
