It can't be bargained with...
It can't be reasoned with...
It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear...
And it absolutely will not stop...

Track Name: Life and Fortune
Our hearts still beat as one
With no regard for space or time
Throw everything away
But hold on to what we’ve made
No one can ever break this

Half-formed words frame this
Air of joy
Watch the sun rise up
Forever
Hold on

Place your faith in me
You will find
I won’t ever let go

An hour’s time
Our souls will bind
A fortune awaits
It’s in our hands

Your selfless life
Inspires me
It comforts me
At every turn
Just hold on…

Throw everything all away
(It’s all right)
Hold on to what we’ve made
(It’s all right)
Throw everything all away
(It’s all right)

An hour’s time
Our souls will bind
A fortune awaits
It’s in our hands

Your selfless life
Inspires me
It comforts me
At every turn
Just hold on…

Throw everything all away
(It’s all right)
Hold on to what we’ve made
(It’s all right)
Throw everything all away
Throw everything all away
Track Name: All Wicked Men
We’ll seize the day
And force our way
The life he leads
Will melt away

Oh, you know you can’t resist
The fire’s in your eyes
You can see it all

All great men must lead now
Or lose out on most in life
We’ll make our place forever
If we take this chance right now

Don’t look away
It’s not too late
The choice we’ll make
Will seal his fate

Oh, you know you can’t resist
The fire’s in your eyes
You can see it all

All great men must lead now
Or lose out on most in life
We’ll make our place forever
If we take this chance right now

All hell will break
It’s a call to arms
So rise or fall
Don’t stop to wait
Let it burn inside
And turn your mind
All hell will break
It’s a call to arms
So rise or fall
Don’t stop to wait
Let it burn inside
And turn your mind

All hell will break

All hell will break
It’s a call to arms
So, rise or fall
Don’t stop to wait
Let it burn inside
And turn your mind
Track Name: Emperors and Fools
In this appalling abode
The walls are dripping with tears
The silence deadens the air
Alone I stand
Reach back to light-filled days
To keep me sane
But clouds so dark and grey
Sustain my pain

Misfortune plays
Its hollow game
Its calloused grip tightens firm around

Give back those hopeful dreams
Give back my life
Withdraw these darkened clouds
Give back my life

My solid ground
Has been undone
My world so light has dissolved away

Give back those hopeful dreams
Give back my life
Withdraw these darkened clouds
Give back my life

Lost in this moment
Oh, I can’t conceive how
All of my dreams have escaped and deceived me
Filled with emotions
I never quite fathomed
Send my regards to the ones who will fall

Give back those hopeful dreams
Give back my life
Withdraw these darkened clouds
Give back my life

Give back those hopeful dreams
Give back my life
Withdraw these darkened clouds
Give back my life

Lost in this moment
Oh, I can’t conceive how
Send my regards to the ones who will fall
Track Name: Catatonia
Capture unmistakable,
Floating images dance around my head
On the brink of happiness
Where all was lost

I won’t concede to
This abhorrent fate (No, I won’t)
I will defeat this
As you guide my way (guide my way)

My hopes make light in
These chains that bind me
My mind sees through all
Of the lies that caged me

Oh, it won’t be too long
Until I’m out on my own

Your words inspire
Oh, they calm my pain (Calm my pain)
I will recover
And restore my name and stake my claim

My hopes make light in
These chains that bind me
My mind sees through all
Of the lies that caged me

Lost and abandoned
For so long
Bowed, beaten, broken
I’ll just hope

Lost and abandoned
Bowed, beaten, broken
I’ve been awakened
I’ve been awakened

I’ll just hope

Lost and abandoned
Bowed, beaten, broken
I’ve been awakened
I’ve been awakened

I’ll just hope
Track Name: Coraggio
After all I’ve seen this won’t ever be the same
After all I’ve been through it’s time that I reclaim

The lies they told won’t fade away
When I’m out with all the lessons you’ve relayed

Oh, I can feel all this energy return
And I can feel all it burning deep inside

Those lies they told won’t fade away
When I’m out with all the lessons you’ve relayed

Slowly burn
Through night and day
Feel the pangs
Of vengeant thought
All I see
Is slow decay
A heart so warm
Now turned to stone

It’s hard to say
What’s in my soul
Won’t fade away
But now…
Oh, I see
Oh, I see so clearly now

Slowly burn
Through night and day
Feel the pangs
Of vengeant thought
All I see
Is slow decay
A heart so warm
Now turned to stone
