Track Name: Like A Laser
Struttin’ down the runway with those lips
Nothing says “hello” quite like those hips
’Cause there’s a Point B I need to see
Won’t let the bastards get the best of me

We slip and slide around this marketplace
They don’t know the thinking behind my face
Every day just tryin’ to get on through
When I only need me some of you

Stand up straight
You’re looking great
That’s all they ever say
Like a laser

Little punks think they can size me up
I’ve been around the block boys, keep it up
Let me show you young pups how it’s done
Blink an eye, turn around almost

Stand up straight
You’re looking great
That’s all they ever say
Like a laser

Guitar solo: Hugo

Stand up straight
You’re looking great
That’s all they ever say
Like a laser

Deep inside of me
I keep the hurricane at bay
Calm at the center now
I’ve got no need to stray
A focus, a clarity – a lifetime in each day
The wolves outside my door
You know I ain’t gonna play
Today...

Guitar solo: Emmett
Track Name: Fountainhead
A house, a person
Seldom has integrity
In this life I choose
The best way for me

The hurt only goes...
Down so far

The purpose determines
The central idea
The Voice of Reason
I always hear alone

The hurt only goes...
Down so far
And the point is, who?
Who will stop me?

Guitar solos: Emmett

To do what I want
Is the world’s hardest thing
What I really want
Takes the greatest courage

The hurt only goes...
Down so far
And the point is, who?
Who will stop me?
Track Name: Good 'Til Sunday
Saw you today, you flashed your smile at me
Then you went away
Now you’re right here in front of me
Is it fate that you’re here, dancing tonight?
Come with me you know, I’ll treat you right

You can trust me, I’ll only hurt you
It will hurt so good
Take it slow, take it fast, make it last
Turn the lights down
Give me a chance, not one more word
Tonight I’ll be your world

It’s obvious you want to leave this place
It doesn’t end tonight
We could have pure bliss in our embrace
Something I can’t miss, please hold me tight
Come with me you know, I’ll treat you right

You can trust me, I’ll only hurt you
It will hurt so good
Take it slow, take it fast, make it last
Turn the lights down
Give me a chance, not one more word
Tonight I’ll be your world

Guitar solo: Hugo

Coming to you
You’re coming to me
Let this feeling
Overtake you
You can trust me
I’ll only hurt you
Turn the lights down
Tonight I’ll be your world
Track Name: Against It All
Be the torrent of the moment
I have always been the wave
A burning, polar method
Time to defend the Knave

We rise above the silence
And the many who “know” that way
No wars end in violence
A million smiles to go and pay

See hypocrisy and the haters on display
You know me, they owe me

Against it all – You see it!
Against it all – Believe it!
Against it all – You mean it!

A grinning troll to think about it
Mad pronouncement in my sway
To try and fool the pretty ones
Laughing all along the way

See hypocrisy and the haters on display
You know me, they owe me

Against it all – You see it!
Against it all – Believe it!
Against it all – You mean it!

Guitar solo: Hugo
Track Name: Running In Time
Will it all begin the same?
Living on beyond our time
Will it all just end the same?
Breathing all again

Will we live beneath the sea?
Travel on between the stars?
Breathe our last beneath the sun?
Breathing out the flame

Running in time, to the end
The ceiling is curved... once again

Livin’ on and on this isle
Would it all evolve the same?
Feeling the sun
Flaming out again

Will it all remain the same?
Write all this down!
Dreaming is out,
In eyes bloom

Running in time, to the end
The ceiling is curved, to transcend
The illusion besot... is now

Guitar solo: Emmett

Running in time, to the end
The ceiling is curved once again
The illusion besot
An obscene old man...
Will it begin, the same?

Guitar solo: Hugo

Running in time, to the end
The ceiling is curved, to transcend
The illusion besot
An obscene old man...
Will it end, the same?
Track Name: Athena
Reporter asked about the incident
That last night... the last night
I was body man for the Senator
That last night... the last night
He staked it all upon the common man
And it cost him... yeah, it cost him

And it was late, that December
And the rain was coming down
You were there that night
I know, I remember
And the rain was coming down

Reporter asked if you were involved in it
That last night... the last night
You were in my bed each night the week before
And it cost him... yeah, it cost him

And it was late, that December
And the rain was coming down
You were there that night
I know, I remember
And the rain was coming down

Guitar solo: Hugo

Athena
Track Name: The Dancer
Perchance to dream, she dances alone in the moonlight
She bares her scars and dares you to walk away
A flicker in the dark captured in the moment
A calm recollection is going to have to wait

Fiction of resistance, a plausible existence
Like a moth to a flame, you see her behind the glass
Through the metal and the pain balance out the moment
A calm recollection is going to have to wait

’Cause she don’t need someone like you
And I know what to do
’Cause she don’t need someone like you
And I...

See little sister dancin’ there in the moonlight
Even though it’s dark, I can still see her face
I saw you walk away and leave her
Now I’m gonna take your place

’Cause she don’t need someone like you
And I know what to do
’Cause she don’t need someone like you
And I...

Guitar solo: Emmett
Track Name: Bottle
See the world through a bottle
And every night’s the same
Time is closing in on me
Dark angel knows my name

Been a long time coming on
I’ve seen one too may dawns
The symptom or the problem?
The answer’s in the bottle

Nothing I can do
It’s all because of you
Nothing I can do

Guitar solos: Emmett

Wasn’t always this way
I can’t see another day
Sickened, nil, and hollow
Crawl back in the bottle

Nothing I can do
It’s all because of you
Nothing I can do

Wasn’t always this way
I can’t see another day
Sickened, nil, and hollow
Crawl back in the bottle

See the world through a bottle
And every night’s the same
The dryness of reality
Has left me without blame...

Nothing I can do
It’s all because of you
Nothing I can do
Track Name: Winning
Wasn’t long ago
But way back in the day
Riverwalls and alcohol
Melodies at play

We started up and then
Went as far as it could go
Went off the rails somewhere
I really just don’t know

The second time around
Might be a new beginning
But I knew it all along
It doesn’t feel like winning

Now we’re back around
To have another go
Older, wiser, are really not
All that apropos

With us its ”always“ good
In an adequate kind of way
Way back when and now
Are really just the same

Guitar solo: Hugo

Here we go around
Back where it all began
Sometimes you have to go away
To come back again

The second time around
Might be a new beginning
But I knew it all along
It doesn’t feel like winning

The second time around
Sitting on the sidewalk
Thinking of a Maiden song Doesn’t feel like winning

Don’t know what it is
But I know what it ain’t
Track Name: Reckoning
I knew when, you came around
It would be the end of me
After all, even now
I know what you need to be

’Cause I know...
When it’s...
Feeling time

Guitar solo: Emmett

It didn’t take, all that long
’til I learned you how to see
Just what it is, I’ll make it clear
Just what you need to need

’Cause I know...
When it’s...
Feeling time

Bring the reckoning
You talk right into me
’Cause girl you so unreal
Got the Christmas feel

Guitar solos: Hugo

Bring the reckoning
You talk right into me
’Cause girl you so unreal
Got the Christmas feel
