We, the people Face the challenge of our lives Apparent heirs of this domain The time is short for us To set a new priority Or we will surely pay the price of the world - Your world - My world - Our world In the name of progress We take more than we need Respect for life exchanged For corporate greed Chemical waste destroys Our land and sea With no regard for the future Of our world We, the people Face the challenge of our lives Apparent heirs of this domain We, the people shape our destiny And the time is now to take care of the world - Your world - My world - Our world We must unite to survive!

...And the poor shall kneel down at their master's feet And dedicate themselves to please... Raging rivers run for the lucky one For the keeper of the grail And the lower men, subjects of the king On their hands and knees prevail Raging rivers run for the honored one For the keeper of the key And the lower men, servants of the king Live to suit their master's greed The keeper of the reign The keeper of the reign Feels no pain... Raging rivers run for the royal One For the keeper of the crown And the lower men soldiers of the king To whom their lives revolve around The keeper of the reign The keeper of the reign Feels no pain... Raging rivers run with the blood of mad men Battle is the keeper's game For the lucky one, to him no harm shall come The keeper never feels their pain - no pain!

Just imagine things beyond the chains of understanding Beyond reason, beyond logic, beyond fear Believe the inconceivable, feel the unbelievable Don't bother asking Is this real?? Just imagine meaning in the things you never dreamed of Like your leaders, your lovers, and your songs Natural Order's changing, in effect Giving everyone a cause Dreamer dreaming in a seeming sleepless land Just imagine Just imagine something inside nothing Like a child in emptiness Or a dreamer in the dark Creative cryogenics -a mind A candle yearning for a spark Dreamer dreaming in a seeming sleepless land Just imagine Just imagine peace where there was none before Under virgin skies Just imagine children with hope Again in their eyes Just imagine Just imagine people really caring And not just saying they do Just imagine nations really talking Like me and you

Here I am in a spotlight Alone all over again And you are home by the firelight With someone else, instead of me The words seemed so real And baby that's why I feel Alone again I swore you were my friend Now I'm all alone All alone again The rhymes I could make If my heart wasn't breaking In two over you Oh I'm the fool For believing in things I can't hold in my hands I don't understand The words seemed so real And baby that's why I feel Alone again I swore you were my friend I'm all alone All alone again

I'm waiting for morning, but night lingers on When will the darkness give way to the dawn? Is there an end? Cast in a shadow so lonely and cold Wondering whether I'll live to grow old A question of Why?? The quest for survival is second to none Can we unite before our end has come? Open your eyes! Cast in a shadow so lonely and cold Wondering whether we'll live to grow old A question of time And what do we have down this road that we're on? A world of hatred, pollution, and pawns Futility pounds in my brain! And what of the people who dream they'll be saved? Are they immune from the fallout and flames? If we're responsible who do we blame?

One small voice had a dream Now he's seen the other side One small heart ached for his people His children, and his pride Just one man With one hope for the world Just one man And one small voice was heard One small voice had a cause So he lived in a cage One small love that endured Through his pain and his rage Just one man With one hope for the world Just one man And one small voice that was heard One small voice Just one small voice

I look into your eyes as you look into mine I see you smile and look away I sense a passion burning deep within your heart Can this be real? I look away And then I wander through the maze of my emotions Looking for the answer to the question in my mind Another dream has come and gone I watch it fade away And now I wander through the maze of my emotions Looking for the answer and waiting for a sign Tell me now –you lead, I’ll follow Will I be with you tomorrow night? I look into your eyes as you look into mine I see you smile and turn away And now I tremble in the midst of my emotions You are the question and the answer to my dreams Tell me now –you lead, I’ll follow Will I be with you tomorrow night? Tell me now –you lead, I’ll follow Will I be with you tomorrow? Will I be with you tomorrow night? I look into your eyes as you look into mine I see you smile and come my way Tell me now – you lead, I’ll follow Will I be with you tomorrow? Tell me now -you lead, I’ll follow Will I be with you tomorrow? Will I be with you tomorrow night? I see you smile…

Show me a tear, and I'll know you're a dreamer Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Tears like empires falling to the ground Yet we're shackled to those dreams We're tied and we're bound So show me a tear and I'll know you're a dreamer Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Show me a tear, and I'll tell you a tale of glory Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Show me your fear and I'll sell you a timeless story Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Nero's song of mourning weeps As pillars fall like rain Only shattered hopes and dust remain Show me a tear and I'll know you're a dreamer Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Show me your fear and I'll know that you're a seer Caesars, one and all we cry for Rome Tears like empires falling down See them on the ground Yet, we're shackled to them We are bound Show, come on and show Show -show. Are there any dreamers? Are there any dreamers? Show me a tear and I'll know you're a seer Nero's haunting melody Of irony and pain The echoes of an empire's final reign

All the pieces seemed to fit today The sky blue matched the city grey The roads all led to somewhere The words I heard were true Everything seemed to fit but me and you All the pieces seemed to fit today Laughter came from children’s play Something came from nothing One and one made two Everything seemed to fit but me and you We are two lost pieces to the puzzle We are two forgotten words that used to rhyme We will never fit together We are two hearts beating out of time…

Memory- go away, I grow weary from my running Hiding for so long I've lost my way Morning lights' reminders painting colors in my prison Daylight brightens every shade of grey The pain never ending, and now its so cliche Yesterdays are creaking doors and noises in the nighttime Feelings, only chains across the floor Voices on the wind, softly moan - I hear them whisper Mirrors mock the man I was before My mind slowly fading like paper in the rain The haunting, it still remains The haunting, it still remains Turning and burning in my bed A never-ending ghost that lives inside my head Memory- go away, I grow weary from my running Hiding for so long I've lost my way Yesterdays are creaking doors and noises in the nighttime Feelings, only chains across the floor My mind keeps decaying like paper in the rain The haunting, it still remains The haunting, it still remains Turning and burning in my bed A never-ending ghost that lives inside my head Memories remain of the haunting Can't stop the pain of the haunting

Watching the setting sun You feel the days gone by Autumn is ending- with winter impending Was summer just a lie? But just like the seasons You know you spring will come You’re young forever Just like the setting sun You’ll rise again You’re young forever Taking on time in a race That you can’t win Down but not out it’s clear you’re wise Beyond your years Time is a ship that keeps on sailing Despite our hailing tears But just like the ship The wind will fill your sails You’re young forever Just like the setting sun You’ll rise again

I looked unto the old one, in the sacred halls I found him there amidst his grief, and crumbling walls The tears that lined his face told the tale he tried to hide Of castles made of sand, and of the tide A whisper through his sobs, I heard him softly say My kingdom for a wise man, yesterday? Nothing can save us, no one can stop the end? Not all your king's horses, or all your amens There's no disarming, no forewarning Morning is over, forever burns the night Time's forever fused with the night The passions of men -in a flash Put an end to the light -End the Light There's no one that can save us now Nothing can stop the end Not all your king's horses, or all your amens Shadows seething -darkness grips the sky Ashes wreathing -fire burning on high Suffocation -the light all gone away In the end I've no final words to say There's no disarming, no forewarning Morning is over- forever burns the night Time's forever fused with the night The passions of men -in a flash Put an end to the light -End the Light Shadows seething -darkness grips the sky Ashes wreathing -fire burning on high There's no disarming, no forewarning Morning is over- forever burns the night There's no one that can save us now Nothing can stop the end Not all your king's horses, or all your amens Shadows seething -darkness grips the sky Ashes wreathing -fire burning forever on high
