Track Name: Culture Shock
Culture Shock

I’m not your friend
You’re not my enemy
But there are things
On which we both agree
I may not share
Your point of view
We’re on a course
We’ve got to see it through

Cos we’re two steps closer to the enemy
One step back in to the past
East and West battle wages on
Why can’t we forget the past
Lets try and negotiate, And try to work it out
Cos we won’t get too far If we don’t talk about…

The differences
The Culture Shock
For adapt is what we do
To the challenge of
The Culture Shock
Try and see it through
I haven’t got a clue

I can’t assimilate
I don’t know what to do
Don’t want to run the risk
Of it offending you
I’m a stranger
On new territory
The stars shine down
Positions lost on me

"Funny how our enemies
Become our friends and our friends our enemies,
one moment united against a common foe
The next, the devil walks among us"
Yeah the devil walks among us

The rain is warm
The earth is dry
The beer tastes different too

You speak a tongue
I just don’t understand
Will you tolerate me too?
Cos we talk about tolerance and shared points of view
But we silently despise all the things that you do
Are we two steps closer to the enemy
Cos the enemy’s a devil that slowly walks among us
The rain is warm
The earth is dry
Track Name: Towards The Sun
Towards The Sun

I know oblivion is calling
The day of reckoning is here
No salvation in the stars
Can turn my tide of fear
Frustration consumes me
For I have to get away
To face the darkness in my thoughts
I needed space

This is mission control calling Alpha 3
We’ve lost your position
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
We’re heading towards the sun
We’re heading towards the sun
Into oblivion

Felt the atmosphere was changing
I’ve become an alien
For the gravity beneath my feet
Was spiralling
Felt the universe in countdown
A black hole inside of me
The endurance that engulfed me
Was really insanity

This is mission control calling Alpha 3
We’ve lost your position
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
We’re heading towards the sun
We’re heading towards the sun
Into oblivion

Towards the Sun
Track Name: The Last Assassin
The Last Assassin

Wide open space
Give freedom to the thoughts inside my soul
Still feeling jaded
The mission bell is ringing evermore

Select the target
Crosshairs are aligned -Sights set on you
There’s no redemption
The contracts signed there’s nothing you can do

Your life is mine
The contract signed
The last exit you take I will decide

I start to wonder
Is there redemption for my sins?
Just one last mission
Its time to draw a line under this thing

Wide open spaces
There’s no hiding place from my deadly gaze
The last assassin
A splash of red
The last goodbye

Your life is mine
The contract signed
The last exit you take I will decide

Cos I am the last assassin
I will decide
Track Name: Wrap It Up
Wrap It Up

You’re living on the razors edge
You never even saw it coming
You live your life from day to day
You’ve got to keep your motor running
There’s a tune inside my head
A melody I’m always humming

Got to let it go
Got it let it go

Somehow we’ll find a way
And in the blink of an eye
Change our fates
Somehow we’ll find a way
And the world will feel like a better place
That’s right

Nothing is a certainty
And there’s no future guaranteed
You’ve got to take it as it is
And that’s the way its got to be
A burning image in my head
The only thing that I see

Got to let it go
Got it let it go

Somehow we’ll find a way
And in the blink of an eye
Change our fates
Somehow we’ll find a way
And the world will feel like a better place
That’s right

Got to let it go
Got it let it go

Somehow we’ll find a way
And in the blink of an eye
Change our fates
Somehow we’ll find a way
And the world will feel like a better place
That’s right

So wrap it up
Wrap it up
Just wrap it up
Track Name: Broken Man
Broken Man

I was looking for inspiration
In the shadows of the light
I was lost in desperation
Out of mind and out of sight
I was tired of aggravation
Of this life before my eyes
I was craving celebration
Though the pain and through the lies

I was looking for animation
In the corridors of time
I was trapped beneath the surface
Doing time for my crime
I was burning in the inside
By never looking out
I was slowly falling to pieces
Of that I had no doubt

But then one day I realized

I was the one
Who felt the pain
I was the one
Who took the blame
You didn’t give a damn
You left me a broken man

I was the one
Who dried your eyes
I was the one
Who told those lies
You didn’t give a damn
You left me a broken man
You left me a broken man

I was feeling such frustration
Why this world can be so cruel
I was scared of new beginnings
I felt my life was all for you
I was hoping to find those answers
In the bottom of a glass
I was thinking of all those good times
And why they didn’t last

But every day I realize

I was the one
Who felt the pain
I was the one
Who took the blame
You didn’t give a damn
You left me a broken man
I was the one
Who dried your eyes
I was the one
Who told those lies
You didn’t give a damn
You left me a broken man
