about

A concept album about how the stress of the modern industrial world can destroy the lives of those who are born into it. This album is meant to be a snapshot into the lives of those people. There is still hope for the world, but this album is constructed to show the serious effects of the modern environment on young people. While the album may seem depressing and dark at times, it is only to open the eyes of those who are still blind. We cannot fix our mistakes until we realize them.

Track Name: Fool on the Hill (Beatles cover)
Day after day, alone on the hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
As he never gives an answer
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

Well on the way, head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices talking percetly loud
But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings
But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around

He never listen to them
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him
The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning around
Track Name: Everything Stops
"Everything Stops"

Still I'm stuck in the rain
searching for my name
I don't know where I'll go
maybe just look for a home
I used to have a dream
of living in harmony
I used to have a job
but now I ain't got a car and

my life is all but gone

maybe someday I'll get the chance
to reclaim my hopes from the quicksand

I don't know why
we can't help each other
we could get together
and maybe change the world, but

I'm still standing in the rain

This is the place, where everything stops (4x)

I'm still standing in the rain
Track Name: Run from Babylon
"Run from Babylon"

Verse:
computer light with a stereo gun
shells flying around the burying ground
long tall sally's got a brand new dress
she don't give a damn about what happens next

Verse 2:
crimson days over maroon nights
babies are crying where there used to be light
he buttons his suit and out he goes
the truth is better left untold

Prechorus:
staring towards the night of a thousand lies
wondering where the sky is
asking why the trees are being killed
and will there be redemption

Chorus:
not all dreams will be cast into the fire
every day has more gifts to offer
when we realize our mistakes
we've got to run, run, run, run, run
away from Babylon

solo

prechorus + chorus

Bridge:
the stars are starting to fall around the city of war
as the city of Babylon sucks our blood
we have to talk about our freedom and liberty
and take back the lives that have been oppressed
by the weakening throne

Verse 3:
John collapsed under the heavy blood line
you know he was a friend of mine
the politician drinks from a bottle of champagne
he sees no reason to complain

Verse 4:
the ice is fading across the muddy river
there are no forests in sight
when I asked Jesus what he thought
he said "the world can even be bought"

repeat prechorus + chorus (2x)
Track Name: Devil In the Skies
Fly up into the ozone
Feed off the weakening souls
Before death takes its toll
Let's stop the blackening fuel
Track Name: First Comes Death
First comes the sun, then comes the rain
Then comes the darkness, then the still

But it doesn't matter at all
all of us will die
And it doesn't matter at all
if death comes and takes my hand

I don't care if I die right now, because life is so short
I don't care if I get stabbed in the back, as long as I'm here with you

First comes the love, then comes the sorrow
Then comes the end of your life

First comes the laughter in the night, but then comes the ruthless traitor
You and I are meant for each other, either now or in a different life

But none of that means anything
because I love you now
And none of that matters now
I just want to be here with you

I don't care if you run away, life is just life
I don't care if you leave me right now, I'll find a way to get by

solo F# G

First comes death, then comes life,
the sorrow we all must face
Then come illusions of greater lives,
all of which no one can see

But nothing matters at all
because I want you right now
No, nothing matters at all
because life is just a mirage

I don't care if you kill me right now, that isn't the worst I've faced
I don't care if you kill me right now, I'll find a way to save myself

First comes innocence, then comes love,
the deception of innocent lives
Then comes betrayal within our lives,
the funeral we all must see

But I don't care if I kill myself, nothing matters at all
And I don't care if I kill myself, as long as it gets me to you

solo

Send the Hurricane
carry my life to the shores of helplessness
My life is in ruins
I have no will to carry on

I don't care what happens
I don't want nobody
in my life
to care for me

but I will get by
I always have,
I always will
no matter what I say

And The light gleams through the open hole
glistening with lies

solo

I don't want nobody
to tell me what to do
I rule my life
I know what to do

I don't need a weight
pulling down on me
double-crossing me,
putting a knife in my back
no no no no
Track Name: Washing Away
Yesterday there was water in the well
but now it's drying up
every day there was water in the ground
but now it's dead and gone

chorus:
Can't you see
we've got to change the way we live before we wash away (2x)

I'm looking at my life
trying to fix all my mistakes before it's too late
I'm dreaming of the day
we can live without the fear of losing our lives
chorus

we're all... washing away 4x

chorus 2x
