Fates Warning

Why is it some of us are destined to stay alive
And some of us are here just so that we'll die
How come the bullet hits the other guy
Do we have to try and reason why

Be it eavil or be it him
You can count on just one thing
When the time is up you'll know
Not just one power runs the show

Are we the lucky ones saved for another day
Or they the lucky ones who are taken away
It is a hand on your shoulder from the lord above
Or the devil himself come to give you a shove

A vulcano errupts and sweeps a town away
A hurricane devastates the cities in it's way
The grief and misery for the ones that are left behind
The worst is yet to come a hell to face mankind

 

Fear is the Key

We live our lives in fever
In a choking sweat of fear
In the heat of the night you can
Feel so much
In the heat of the night I scream
"Don't touch!"

I remember a time when we
Used and abused
And fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that
Passion was free
In the heat of the night... bodies aflame

We live in fever...

I hear your secret heartbeat
I can hear your silent cries
The kids have lost their freedom
And nobody cares till somebody
Famous dies...

I remember a time when we
Used and abused
And fought all our battles in vain
I remember a time we thought that
Passion was free
In the heat of the night... bodies aflame

Now we live, in a world of uncertainty
Fear is the key - to what you want to be
You don't get a say, the majority
Gets its way
You're outnumbered by the bastards
Till the day you die...

We live in fever (x3)

I hear your silent heartbeat
I hear your silent cries
Oh and it's just lies and lies
The kids have lost their freedom
And nobody cares till somebody
Famous dies
And turned it in to lies of lies of lies and lies and lies

I remember a time when we used and abused
And it was just lies and lies and lies and lies and lies ...!
I remember a time when we thought passion was free
And it was just lies and lies and lies and lies and lies ...!

Live in fever...
We live in fever! (x2)

Now we live, in a world of uncertainty
Fear is the key - to what you want to be
You don't get a say, the majority
Gets its way
You're outnumbered by the bastards
Till the day you die...

 

Fear of the Dark

I am the man who walks alone
When I'm walking a dark road
At night or strolling through the park

And when the light begins to change
I sometimes feel a little strange
A little anxious when it's dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

Have you run your fingers down the wall
Have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light?

Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

Have you ever been alone at night
Thought you heard footsteps behind
Turned around and no one's there?

And as you quicken up your pace
You find it hard to look again
Because you're sure there's someone there

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there, that's right

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark

Watching horror films the night before
Debating witches and folklore
The unknown troubles on your mind

I know your mind is playing tricks
You sense and suddenly eyes fix
On dancing shadows from behind

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a phobia that someone's always there

Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
I have a constant fear someone's got always near
Fear of the dark, yeah, fear of the dark
I have a phobia someone's always there

When I'm walking a dark road
I'm a man who walks alone

 

Flash of the Blade

As a young boy chasing dragons with your wooden sword so mighty,
You're St. George or you're David and you always killed the beast.
Times change very quickly,
And you had to grow up early,
A house in smoking ruins and the bodies at your feet.

Chorus: You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man, and his honor.

The smell of resined leather
The steely iron mask
As you cut and thrust and parried at the fencing master's call.
He taught you all he ever knew
To fear no mortal man
And now you'll wreak your vengeance in the
Screams of evil men.

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man, and his honor.

(Guitar Solo)

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man, and his honor.

You'll die as you lived
In a flash of the blade,
In a corner forgotten by no one
You lived for the touch
For the feel of the steel
One man, and his honor.

(Guitar Solo)

 

Flight of Icarus

As the Sun breaks above the ground
An old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still

His eyes are ablaze
See the madman in his gaze

Fly, on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the Sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly, touch the Sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I'll fly

His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave

Fly, on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the Sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly, touch the Sun

Fly, on your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the Sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly as high as the Sun
On your way, like an eagle
Fly, touch the Sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly

Fly as high as the Sun

 

For the Greater Good of God

Are you a man of peace
Or man of holy war
Too many sides to you
Don't know which anymore
So many full of life
But also filled with pain
Don't know just how many
Will live to breathe again

A life that's made to breathe
Destruction or defence
A mind that's vain corruption
Bad or good intent
A wolf in sheep's clothing
Or saintly or sinner
Or some that would believe
A holy war winner

They fire off many shots
And many parting blows
Their actions beyond a reasoning
Only God would know
And as he lies in heaven
Or it could be in hell
I feel he's somewhere here
Or looking from below
But I don't know, I don't know

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

More pain and misery in the history of mankind
Sometimes it seems more like the blind leading the blind
It brings upon us more of famine, death and war
You know religion has a lot of answer for

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

And as they search to find the bodies in the sand
They find it's ashes that are scattered across the land
And as their spirits seem to whistle on the wind
A shot is fired somewhere another war begins

And all because of it you'd think that we would learn
But still the body count the city fires burn
Somewhere there's someone dying in a foreign land
Meanwhile the world is crying stupidity of man
Tell me why, tell me why

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

For the greater good of God (8x)

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

Please tell me now what life is
Please tell me now what love is
Well tell me now what war is
Again tell me what life is

For the greater good of God (8x)

He gave his life for us he fell upon the cross
To die for all of those who never mourn his loss
It wasn't meant for us to feel the pain again
Tell me why, tell me why

 

Fortunes of War

After the war
And now that they've sent us homeward
I can't help but feel that I'm on my own
No one can see just what this conflict has done to
The minds of the men who are on their way home

I'm scarred for life
But it's not my flesh that's wounded
So how can I face the torment alone
The vivid scenes and all the recurring nightmares
I lay there and sweat until it gets light

People say 'don't worry'
Say that time's a perfect healer
That the nightmares they will come to pass
Can't hear what they're saying
I am living in my own world
And I'm feeling trance-like all the time

I hear voices in my head
Could I really be going crazy
In the night the visions seem so real
Do you care if you live or die
When you laugh are you really crying
You're not sure what's real anymore

Fortunes of war
Fortunes of war
Fortunes of war
No pain anymore

Sometimes I wake
I feel that my spirit's broken
I wonder if I've the strength...
To carry on...
Carry on.

 

From Here To Eternity

She fell in love with his greasy machine
She leaned over wiped his head
Kickstart clean
She'd never seen the beast before
But she left there wanting
More more more
But when she was walking on
Down the road
She heard a sound that made
Her heart explode
He whispered to her to get on the back
"I'll take you on a ride
From here to eternity"

Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity

She must be having one of her
Crazy dreams
She'd never sat on a piece so mean
It made her feel like she's on cloud nine
She even thought she heard the
Engine sigh

But like all dreams that come to an end
They took a tumble at the devil's bend
The beast and Charlotte they were
Two of a kind
They'd always take the line...
From here to eternity

Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity
Hell ain't a bad place
Hell is from here to eternity

 

Futureal

I'm running out of my time, I'm running out of breath
And now it's getting so I can't sleep at night
In the day, feel like death

I'm getting in far too deep, I feel them closing in
I've got to say that I'm scared I know they'll win
Even so, I'm prepared

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real?

Whenever anyone seems to treat me like a freak
It makes me see I'm the only one who feels
That I know what is real

Sometimes it feels like a game of deadly hide and seek
And when you're reading this then I will be gone
Maybe then, you will see

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal

Do you believe what you hear, can you believe what you see?
Do you believe what you feel, can you believe?
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal
What is real? Futureal

 

Gangland

Shadows may hide you but also may be your grave
You're running today maybe tomorrow you'll be saved
You pray for daylight to save you for a while
You wonder if your children will face the killer's smile

Dead men -- tell no tales
In Gangland -- murder's up for sale
Dead men -- tell no tales
In Gangland -- where jail birds die

Face at the window leers into your own
But it's only your reflection still you tremble in your bones
How long can you hide? How long till they come?
A rat in a trap but you've got to survive

Once you were glad to be free for a while
The air tasted good and the world was your friend
Then came the day when the hard times began
Now your alone but alive for how long?

A knife at your throat another body on the pile
A contract to keep and it's service with a smile
Murder for vengeance or murder for gain
Death on the streets or a blackened out jail

Dead men -- tell no tales
In Gangland -- murder's up for sale
Dead men -- tell no tales
In Gangland -- where jail birds die

In Gangland you tell no tales
