LYRICS
1 AM I JUST A ROBOT
Got to get to work on time
My job’s already on the line
Repetition is my best friend
For tomorrow i awake to do it all again

Pressures of society
Won’t let up on me
I’m in search of gold and pearls
I’m a warm blooded robot in the modern world

Am i just a robot waiting for the next command?
Built with flesh and blood, this is who i am
Am i just a robot is this where i stand?
No! i’m alive and feeling this is who i am

Feed me with technology
Upscale my efficiency
High performance critical
Grow to be powerful

Chorus

shift and interchange us all at any time no warning call
we can sense the influence of artificial intelligence
if you were alive again what would you think thomas edison?
drawn upon scientific principles nothing is impossible

Chorus

2 SAVE TOMORROW
all in one i’d wish we’d be
and all our souls are free
an ego needs to feel superior
hold the power over those they think inferior

some seek to destroy
trade their life for seven virgins
cradle to the grave
but everybody loves their children

PLEASE, PLEASE LISTEN TO WHAT I SAY
there’s a price to pay if we don’t wise up now
look back look around beware we will burn to the ground
are we gonna let it happen?
save tomorrow

so who’s to say who is right and holds the key?
can reason be instilled in a hijacked religion?
is that the flaw we face threatening the human race?
some would rather slay
cradle to the grave
but everybody loves their children

Chorus

3 ATOMIC HYPNOSIS
instrumental

4 EARTHQUAKE 5:13
a vision came to me of death and tragedy
i saw the buildings fall oh yes i saw it all!
and it was then i knew i had to warn the few
of earthquake 5:13

mirror mirror on the wall why are you shaking?
i’ll move you to a safe place to keep you from breaking
now the whole room is moving to a rumbling vibration
plaster's peeling off the walls what a strange sensation

earthquake 5:13

tormented by the knowledge of tragedy ahead
i saw the suffering the countless that were dead
it became my duty to report my vision
but no one believed me they just wouldn’t listen

earthquake 5:13

just a few minutes left maybe two or three at best
then the walls will shake and then the ground will quake
and they’ll remember me the ones that would not see
earthquake 5:13

5 LEGEND OF THE GENETICAL BEAST
it all began where the cherokee claimed their land
not too long ago maybe 40 years or so
industry moved in the indians couldn’t win

consciously the chemicals were dumped
into virgin lakes the waste pumped
the wild life became crazy, genetically changing

as time went on the creature spawned
surviving as nature can he will be ready for man

the campers didn’t know that their lives were about to end
from the shadows came the beast searching for his human feast
man’s ignorance has made it this way

now everyone is scared the evil of nature they dared
no one knows what to do where to turn or hide

the war between man and beast has just begun
the prophecy has come true
the creature grows the creature breathes he knows no death

Genetical Beast

6 WHEN WILL I SEE THE SUN AGAIN
feel the cold wind sending shiver through my body
a gray cloud hands above my picture
it looks at me everyday
afraid to face the world and that i might slip, i retreat in despair
i would do anything to get this monkey off my back
i can’t take the strain take the pain i don’t wanna live my life in vain

when will i see the sun again?

i’m beginning to see where i’ve gone wrong
gotta learn the meaning of love
stuck inside myself got to find away out
but like the wiseman had to learn how to live
it’s a matter of shedding skin

when will i see the sun again?

i'm beginning to see
i'm beginning to love
i'm beginning to grow
i'm looking ahead

when will i see the sun again?


7 SPIRITS OF THE UNDERWORLD
way down below
lies a place where sinners go
fire is the light day is night
all the gates are closed all the dead has risen
burning souls all around
no escape can be found

spirits of the underworld go leave us alone
spirits of the underworld return back to your grave

some people will follow
the kingdom lies they swallow
carrying out their dreadful task
wearing the demon mask
so when you go to bed tonight
say your prayers and don’t turn out the light
they’re reaching out for you and me
to steal your soul and make you bleed

chorus

way down below
lies a place where sinners go
fire buring hot in the land of distraught
so when you go to bed tonight
say your prayers and don’t turn out the light
cause they’re out to get you and me
to steal your soul and make you bleed

Chorus

8 YOU SHINE BRIGHT ON ME
i made a promise to myself
to give it the best shot, to give it hell
but nothing comes easy, nothing’s free
just try to live my life and do a good deed

you shine bright on me
lit the way so i could see
a better place to go
where love grows
and in this fruitful garden
vivid colors i can see
paint the picture my friend

i made the decision, stood my ground
nothing to lose, i scream out loud
lived through it all, now i recognize
there’s a truth greater, there’s another side

chorus

when the demons come
come to torture my soul
i’m saved by the light of an angel

you shine bright on me
lit the way so i could see
to a better place
you shine bright on me

9 TIME STANDING STILL
with every beat of hearts no matter who we are
we march to the drummer
in the theater of life days turn into nights
winter turns to summer

can we really understand?
touch our lives with our hands
taste the meaning of it all
feel the light before we fall

time time time standing still
(it never stands still)

like the sun in the sky like the clock we live by
all is measured
moving forward we’re alive it’s what its takes to survive
time is treasure

if we’ve could stop and see it all
like a painting on a wall
but that desire is not to be
time keeps pushing endlessly

Chorus

10 LIFE’S A ONE WAY TICKET RIDE
bright and sunny morning
i’m so glad you came
last night we stayed up and talked for hours
about how the times are changing and what we’re given

life’s a one way ticket ride
i’ll take your hand you’ll take mine

what you want to do today?
ride our bikes along the trail
have you heard from mark and lori?
i hope your mama's doing well

chorus

we stayed up all night breaking all the rules
driving nowhere thinking we were cool
mom and dad don’t know anything
i think they’re going insane
then we all split up and followed our dreams
now that time’s gone by what have we achieved?
have we learned what really matters?

life’s a one way ticket ride
our destiny we’ll meet in time
