1 2 3 Crusaders


1 2 3 Crusaders, marching into war 
4 5 6 7  Don't know what's in store  
8 9 10 11 Rise upon the hill
12 13 14 15 Charge in for the kill
16 17 18 19 Fire from up high 
1 2 3 Crusaders, fall and sadly die
4 5 6 7 Turn and start to run
8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 
This war they had won

Sandman


Let me, enter you 
Here... There... Is... No... Curfew 
Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut you deep 
This nightmare's real, there is no sleep 
Here we are, the sandman's here 
There's no escape, so you better fear 
Here we lie, just you and me 
And pain is what i'll guarantee  

Let me, let me in 
Just close your eyes, and we will begin 
Fight, fight, fight, fight, beat you dead
I'm not warmed up, until I'm seeing red 
Here we are, the sandman's here 
There's no escape, so you need to fear 
Here we lie, just you and me 
And pain is what i'll guarantee

Let me, break you in 
I'll shatter every bone underneath your skin
Shake, shake, shake, shake, every nerve 
Madness is the only gift that you deserve 
As here we are, the sandman's here 
There's no escape, so you better fear 
Here we lie, just you and me 
And pain is all i'll guarantee

Here we are, the sandman's here
There's no escape, let me make it clear
Here you'll bleed, eternally 
The sandman will not set you free

Hiding In There (For my brother Francis)


I can see by your eyes that you're broken and tired 
No longer the man that i often admired 
Your hair is disheveled, your skin is unclean 
And you're the loneliest creature that i've ever seen 

You stare at the walls and you don't say a word 
The screaming inside you forever unheard 
The fear that enshrines you and locks you away 
Have turned you to stranger in your disarray 

Brother, dear brother, I'm here don't you see?
Avoid all your demons and try to break free 
Forget all the wrongs that you did in the past 
You were never the first and you won't be the last

In this sterile room you will die all alone
No family, no children, just you on your own 
With no one to comfort and show you they care
For the man who is hiding in there

I Never Knew You...


I never knew you...
I've not seen your face before
I am pretty good with faces 
And i think I'm pretty sure
I never called you as a friend 
And unlike you i won't pretend 
I just don't need you in my life
I just don't need you, in my life 

You say you knew me...
Said we'd often hang around 
Said that we were pretty crazy!
We were always trouble bound 
You say you used to call me friend 
But i cannot comprehend 
As i don't need you in my life
I just don't need you, in my life 

I never knew you... 
I don't care what you might say
Find somebody else to cling to
Turn around and go away 
I never called you as a friend 
And unlike you i won't pretend 
As I don't need you in my life
No i don't need you in my life
I just don't need you, in my life

Where Did You Go?


I know where you went to, but where did you go?
I guess if you told me, i'd still never know
Your nightmares continue, they'll always remain 
And although you're not bleeding, you still feel the pain

Who's war did you fight in? I'm really not sure
Did you honestly feel this was worth fighting for?
The enemy out there, were so much like you
They trembled inside much the same as you do

The bullets that dodged you, all carried your name
But the finger on trigger was not one of blame
Your government called you, and you chose to run 
No sane man would jump, and then pick up a gun 

In fields you remain, in the pits full of mud
You're drenched to the skin from the enemies blood 
No matter how hard you might scrub it away 
It will always return by the end of the day 

The war is now over, but never for you
You still clean the mud from the soles of your shoe
And while you lay dreaming, beware of the night 
As you'll never escape from the enemies sight


The scars that you carry, like scores on the skin 
Are maps from the battles you never did win 
This killing and dying makes no sense to me
A man that can kill he will never be free


I know where you went to, but where did you go?
I guess if you told me, i'd still never know
As war is for heroes who never return 
And it's something i don't have the courage to learn

This Inferno


Stoke the fire...
Let the flames jump, higher and higher 
This inferno... It must be seen 
Fuel it if it takes a can of gasoline 
It must be burning...
Burning brightly... Higher and higher 
It must be burning...
Don't let rain put out your fire
Turn it up...
Cinders won't ignite the soul
Turn it up...
Stack the wood and burn the coal 
This inferno, it will be seen 
Turn it up and fuel it with your gasoline 
This inferno...
This inferno
This inferno...
Must, grow and grow and grow and grow 
This inferno...
This inferno
This inferno...
Must, grow and grow and grow and grow

Black And White


The black man has his problems
His skin his only fate
The white man in his ignorance 
Is troubled with his hate
Yet neither one will take the time
To look at each within
And see the only difference
Is the colour of their skin

If each could only understand
That people are the same
That each and every one of them
Is just as much to blame
This hatred for another
Is a choice YOU came to choose 
And if the feelings mutual 
Then the both of you will lose

No need for segregation 
As each one of us is free
Just open up your eyes 
And maybe one of you will see
That every man is equal 
And each one deserves the right 
To walk upon this sacred earth
No matter black or white
