SHIT! SHIT!

I've been hiding here for a thousand years, waiting for your ghost
I've been hiding here for a thousand years, waiting for your ghost
YOUR LIFES ABOUT TO FLASH BEFORE YOUR EYES
YOUR LIFES ABOUT TO FLASH BEFORE YOUR EYES

Stand your ground, this is ancient land
I was guided here by the spirits hand
We shall meet, at Hells gate
This is fate THIS IS FATE this is fate THIS IS FATE

Not all is lost the spirits shriek
You will be hunted WE SHALL SEEK
Perserverance, turn the page

We're not hiding WE'RE NOT HIDING

We're not hiding now WE'RE NOT HIDING NOW

I'm in the zone

ALLRIIIGHT!

AND STILL WE WILL BE HERE,
STANDING LIKE STATUES (repeat to end)

Go tell all your friends that this is the end
go tell all your friends that this is the end
go tell all your friends that this is the end
this is the end

i don't understand a word you're saying
what are the clouds running from?
there's something in the air tonight
something is wrong, spit it out!

I just fell from the mothership
(they said that)
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed

there's something in the air
there's something in the air
tonight, i'm wide awake, i'm wide awake
there's something in the air
there's something in the air
tonight, i'm wide awake, i'm wide awake

and i'll plead with a thousand voices

I am sane! I am sane!

I just fell from the mothership
(they said that)
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed

walk the plank! walk the plank! walk the plank!
walk the plank! walk the plank! walk the plank!
walk, the, plank!

your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed
your answers, they're always lying on the ocean bed

His eyes are locked on her,
Her eyes are fixed elsewhere,
He’s confident, but he's not aware,
She doesn't care.
Their only connection, is the silence that they both grasp,
he's lost control, but she’s not aware, of his stare.
Everything seems to intimidate him, with the strobe lights flashing, her body's jolting,
But cracking, as his eyes, spilt in two, if only she knew...
If only she knew!If only!If only she knew
The curtain goes down on him again(2x)Everything seems to be closing in on her,
It feels just like she is being hunted,
But its all right, it's all good,
She’s not aware, of his stare...
We’ve had this date from the beginning(2x)
The curtain goes down on him again(2x)
Who remains when the curtain falls?
Remains when the curtain goes down...?
Who remains when the curtain falls?
Remains when the curtain goes down...?

Interlude 1

[No lyrics]

. . .


HELP!!!

The air turns black,
The birds drop from the sky
This eagle has landed
I'm choking on your pride,

But the walls are closing in
And you don't appreciate
That in my hands tonight
Is where your fate lies
Her face drains...

Stand up, take a bow you have
No reason to celebrate
You're lost in the labyrinth
Scream now it's not too late.

HELP!!!

The air turns black,
The birds drop from the sky
This eagle has landed
I'm choking on your pride,

But the walls are closing in
And you don't appreciate
That in my hands tonight
Is where your fate lies
Her face drains...

Stand up, take a bow you have
No reason to celebrate
You're lost in the labyrinth
Scream now it's not too late.

Nothing seems to break the walls down,
Break the walls down.
Nothing seems to break the walls down,
Break the walls down.

We'll break the walls,
We'll break the walls,
We'll break the walls down.

We'll break the walls,
We'll break the walls,
We'll break the walls down.

Well, it looks like the end of tonight for our friend here
He's finding it hard to keep his head
Especially with his girl screaming in his ear
We've gotta ask ourselves, do they deserve this
Speak now or forever hold their peace.

Will he make it out
I hope he makes it out,
He's gonna make it out,
He's gotta make it out.

(Stand) stand up
(You're) you're lost
In a labyrinth!

. . .


Where's your respect WHERES YOUR RESPECT
Why bite the hand that feeds
It's not not over yet NOT OVER YET
Plenty more fingers for you to nibble
I'd like to see you get your teeth round this
I'm sure your jaw will surele be missed
Not even salt can make your hands taste good
I'm still crunching your lifeline
You do this every fucking time
No sweat NO TEARS no guilt
Blood fills your palms

. . .


You might never meet me,
For I am King.
And as we march into the storms eyes,
I find relief in the rain.
I can hind as I lead my army,
Into certain death.

Eyes over you. [x2]

Feel Alive. [x4]

And I wanted you to know,
Today won't go down in stone.
(Feel Alive)

And I wanted you to know,
I never meant for this.
(Close your eyes)

And I wanted you to know,
I never meant for this.
(Close your eyes)

Today won't go down in history,
So shut your eyes

. . .

Interlude 2

[No lyrics]

. . .


You look like you
Rented a smile
From someone but you
Rented the wrong size

Take it back
You should take it back

BURY IT
That's not what you want
That's not what you want

Cause that would grow more
That's not what you want
That's not what you want

We still have
the element
of surprise
defence shields
DOWN

Return to energiser (x4)

Wave your bloody white flags
surrender
give in

that's not what you want (x4)

that's not what you

We still have
the element
of surprise
defence shields
down!

Return to energiser (x8)

And all hell breaks loose, when you're here...(x4)

Interlude 3

[No lyrics]

. . .


Scratch card glory or waist low pleasure?
Black eyes nose bleeds, don’t look back now
My white abode, do you remember? My white abode
But it’s such a thrill just to find out…
Sorry you’re not a winner, with the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose but false intentions and a life so pretentious?
I sweat, I ache.

Scratch card glory or waist low pleasure?
Black eyes nose bleeds, don’t look back now
My white abode, do you remember? My white abode
But it’s such a thrill just to find out…
Sorry you’re not a winner, with the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose but false intentions and a life so pretentious?
I sweat, I ache.

Scratch card glory (or waist low pleasure?)
Black eyes nose bleeds (don’t look back now)
My white abode, do you remember?
I sweat, I ache.

Sorry you’re not a winner, with the air so cold and a mind so bitter
What have you got to lose but false intentions and a life so pretentious?




Wha? Wha? What?

Please try again, Insert your coin... (x2)

Interlude 4

[No lyrics]

. . .


Rise, taste the air, lock and load, pull the trigger,
Climb, to new heights, and tell me, tell me what you hear...

A whisper from the wind, and i cant help but listen,
It warns us of disaster, and i cant help but wonder,
Can anyone hear the same distress call?

So this is a quest to save the world,
And he'll always be here for another,
Another day another chance to rescue

(OK Jonny, lock and load)

This is all i need to feel alive,
(Remember now, aim small, missed mark)

The Crashing of white waves and i cant help but listen,
The Screaming of the Earth, and i cant help but...

So this is a quest to save the world,
And He'll always be here for another,
Another day, Another chance to rescue,

This is all i need to feel alive, (oh yeah)
(HEY JONNY!)
This is all i need to feel alive

WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD!
WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD!
WAY TO SAVE THE WORLD!
WAY.....TO SAVE......THE WORLD!

So this is a quest to save the world,
And He'll always be here for another,
Another day, Another chance to rescue

So this is a quest to save the world,
And He'll always be here for another,
Another day, Another chance to rescue

This is all i need to feel alive, (x9)]

. . .


And I long for you to appear
After losing your way across star riddled skies
To carry you home
[x2]

I cherish my loss
A gentle reminder, that life is unkind
At the best of times

And I long for you to appear
After losing your way across star riddled skies
To carry you home

I cherish my loss
A gentle reminder, that life is unkind
At the best of times

(Brace your self, cause I think Im coming for you. Look up into the sky)

Home could be anywhere, when I am holding you...

. . .


Let this battle commence, one last time!
Let this battle commence, one last time!
Let this battle commence, one last time!
[And I hope for your sake, that you're on our side]
Let this battle commence, one last time!
[And I hope for your sake, that you're on our side]

Look what you've done to yourself
Yeah you've lost the will to do what's right again
Look what you've done to yourself
Hunger to discover that you're not here

Look what you've done to yourself
Yeah you've lost the will to do what's right again
Look what you've done to yourself
Yeah

Let this battle commence! And for what it's worth, it will not solve anything!!
[And I hope for your sake, that you're on our side]
Let this battle commence! One last time! Woah!!!
[And I Hope for your sake, that you're on our side]

Look what you've done to yourself
Yeah you've lost the will to do what's right again
Look what you've done to yourself
Hunger to discover that you're not here

Look what you've done to yourself
Yeah you've lost the will to do what's right again
Look what you've done to yourself
Hunger to discover that you're not here

The time has come to think again...
To think again...

Look what you've done to yourself...
OK, TIME FOR PLAN B.

THIS MEANS WAR!
THIS MEANS WAR!
THIS MEANS WAR!
THIS MEANS WAR!

Everyone freezes and waits for the eart to move. Everyone freezes and waits for the ground to shake.

LETS MAKE THE EARTH MOVE
LETS MAKE THE GROUND SHAKE
LETS MAKE THE EARTH MOVE
LETS MAKE THE GROUND SHAKE
LETS MAKE THE EARTH MOVE
LETS MAKE THE GROUND SHAKE
LETS MAKE THE EARTH MOVE
LETS MAKE THE GROUND SHAKE!

. . .


And still we will be here,
Standing like statues
